THE FATHER IN THE SON
Did
the Father (Spirit) walk among us? The answer is yes,
He dwelt in a body(the Son)and lived with man. Now Jesus
could say, “He that hath seen Me has seen the Father”.
Now,
all the fullness of God  dwells in Him (Jesus). God
gave Christ the Spirit without measure. Christ gave us a
picture of this when He shone like the sun before His
disciples.

John 3:34 For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words
of God: for God
giveth not the Spirit by measure unto him.
John 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which
none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have
they both
seen and hated both me and my Father.
Corinthians II 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ,
reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their
trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the
word of reconciliation.
Colossians 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the
Godhead bodily
. 10 And ye are complete in him, which is
the head
of all principality and power:

THE HOLY SPIRIT
This is the way that God(Spirit) works in man today.
God
worked
in the Old Testament as the Father in different
ways. He than
worked in the Son to put all things under His
feet. God works in man in these last days through His
Spirit.
The Spirit is not a different person but is God(Spirit)
working in a different way.

John 14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you
another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever;
17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for
he dwelleth with you, and shall be in
you.
18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the
Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things,
and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I
have said unto you.
John 16:7 Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient
for you that I go away: for
if I go not away, the Comforter
will not come
unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto
you.
Acts 2:17 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith
God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh:
and your
sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young
men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream
dreams:

WHO IS THE FATHER OF JESUS CHRIST?
Some would say the Father is. But
the Scriptures say that
the Holy Spirit was the Father. There is only one way to
explain this, the Father and the Holy Spirit are one Spirit.


Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this
wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph,
before they came together, she was found
with child of the
Holy Ghost.
Luke 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of
the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the
throne of his father David: 35 And the angel answered and
said unto her, The
Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and
the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore
also
that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be
called the Son of God.

HOW DOES CHRIST DWELL IN OUR HEARTS?
Is Christ a Spirit?
Are there three Spirits? Think about it!

John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot
receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him:
but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and
shall be in
you.
Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent
forth
the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba,
Father.
Ephesians 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for
an habitation of God through the Spirit.

A KINGDOM.
If there was
a kingdom with three kings who ruled in
perfect harmony and had equal power and authority,
would you say that this kingdom had one king, or three? If
the Godhead is made up of three different persons
(individuals)
all working together in equal power and
authority, would it be one God or three?

JESUS IS CALLED WHAT?
How can the Son be called the Father?

Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is
given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and
his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The
mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.

ONE OR THREE?
Is the Godhead three persons, co-equal, or
one Spirit
working and revealing Himself in three different ways
(offices)? Study it, pray about it!

Acts 17:10 And the brethren immediately sent away Paul
and Silas by night unto Berea: who coming thither went
into the synagogue of the Jews.
Acts 17:11 These were more noble than those in
Thessalonica, in that
they received the word with all
readiness of mind, and
searched the scriptures daily,
whether those things were so.
