The Oneness of the Godhead (The Mighty God is JESUS)


The Oneness of the Godhead (The Mighty God is JESUS)

Need to have items:

1. Bible (could have noted in Bible or just memorize them …lol j/k)
2. One Glove
3. Please wear Long sleeve shirt or Coat (This was hard for such a worm as I)
4. Use as many or few verses as you need. I used them all when I taught the adults. They are big Kids…hahaha.

1. Show them a GLOVE. Explain to them that this is an “object” of clothing.
Explain that it fits the form of the hand. Short fingers or big hands. (one size fits all should work) Objective: to show that God was clothed in flesh/glove.

2.Then, pretend one of your hands is invisible by drawing your hand up into your sleeve (this is not hard for Fred the worm) Tell the children that they can not see the “HAND” because God is invisible:

Lesson Objective: To simply know and realize that the Mighty God is Jesus

I. How to explain that God/HAND is invisible
1Jo 4:12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:

Explain: Glove is the Son / Your Hand is the Father

Read Col 1:13 – 15 again, But this time substitute:
The word GLOVE for SON
The word HAND for FATHER / GOD

Col 1:13 Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear GLOVE/SON:
Col 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Col 1:15 Who is the image of the invisible HAND/GOD, the firstborn of every creature:

II. The GLOVE is a “form fitting” object. The EXPRESS IMAGE of the HAND

Heb 1:3a KJV
Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person…

Hebrews 1:3a (New International Reader’s Version)
The Son is the gleaming brightness of God’s glory. He is the exact likeness of God’s being…

Hebrews 1:3a (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
He is the radiance of His glory, the exact expression…

III. Now, let’s read some scripture with more HAND/GLOVE word substitution drawing attention to the GLOVED HAND:

Col 2:9
For in THE GLOVE dwelleth all the fulness of the HAND bodily.

1 John 2:23
Whosoever denieth the GOVE, the same hath not the HAND: (but) he that acknowledgeth the GLOVE hath the HAND also.

John 5:26
For as the HAND hath life in himself; so hath he has given to the GLOVE to have life in himself;

(Go around and shake hands and ask if they can feel the HAND/GLOVE through the GLOVE/JESUS?)

Now, tighten the pressure and ask,”Do you feel the pressure of THE GLOVE or do you feel the pressure of my HAND?”

That’s why Jesus said:
John 8:58
THE GLOVE said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, THE GLOVE am.

You can even turn in the Bible and “Read or Follow”

John 5:18
Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill THE GLOVE because he not only had broken the Sabbath but said also that THE HAND was HIS HAND, making THE GLOVE equal with THE HAND.

John 1:1, In the beginning, was THE HAND, and the HAND was with God, and the HAND was God.

John 1:14 And the HAND were made A GLOVE, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the HAND,) full of grace and truth.

John 14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the HAND, and it sufficeth us.

John 14:9 THE GLOVE saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen THE GLOVE hath seen the HAND; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the HAND?

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the HAND, and the HAND IS in THE GLOVE? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of THE GLOVE: but the HAND that dwelleth in THE GLOVE, he doeth the works.

John 14:11 Believe me that THE GLOVE is in the HAND, and the HAND in THE GLOVE: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.


Isa 43:3 For I am the HAND thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy GLOVE: I gave Egypt for thy ransom, Ethiopia and Seba for thee.

Isa 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the HAND, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me, there was no HAND formed, either shall there be after me.
Isa 43:11 I, even I, am the HAND; and beside me, there is no GLOVE.

Isa 45:15 Verily thou art THE HAND that hides thyself, O God of Israel, the GLOVE.

Isa 45:21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the HAND? and there is no HAND else besides me; a just HAND and a GLOVE; there is none beside me.

VII. Closure: Good song to end on:

(ALL IN HIM…page 369 in your songbook for old-timers page 29….lol)

The mighty HAND is the GLOVE the prince of peace is he
the everlasting HAND the King eternally
the wonderful in wisdom by whom all things were made
The fullness of the Godhead in THE GLOVE is displayed

Emmanuel THE HAND with us, Jehovah Lord of host
The omnipresent Spirit, Who fills the universe
The advocate the high priest, the Lamb for sinners slain
The Author of redemption, oh glory to his name

The Alpha and Omega, Beginning and the end
The living Word incarnate, the helpless sinner’s friend
Our wisdom and perfection, our righteousness and power
Yes all we need in THE GLOVE, we find this very hour

Our HAND for whom we’ve waited will be the glad refrain
Of Israel recreated, when THE HAND comes again
Lo! He will come and save us, our king and priest to be
For in THE GLOVE dwells all fulness, And Lord of all is He

It’s all in THE GLOVE
it’s all in THE GLOVE
The fullness of the Godhead
It’s all in THE GLOVE
It’s all in THE GLOVE
The mighty HAND is the Glove and it’s all in THE GLOVE
