Isaiah 45:3 (KJV)

Malachi 2:10 (KJV)

Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

1Co 8:4-5 (KJV)

4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men,the man Christ Jesus;

James 2:19 (KJV)

Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

My Comments on the above verses:

Folks everyone of the above verses tell us there is ONE GOD. There is not three gods as some believe. I love all my sisters and brothers of the Trinity Doctrine and all other faiths as I was a member of that but the error I was taught was that God was the first person of the Trinity, the Son was the second person and the Holy Spirit was the third person This was error for God is not a person but a Spirit and the Holy Spirit is not a person but a Spirit and as we study together I pray you will see what was revealed to me. In fact the word Trinity is not even in the Bible anywhere and I searched for it for years and could not find it anywhere.I am able to back that up as to where the word came from but not in this study as I am tiring to keep this simple but if you have questions you are free to ask us them and we will do our best to give  you and answer from the Word of God.”

God is a Spirit:

Jn 4:23-24 (KJV)

23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

1 John 4:12 (KJV)

No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.

Luke 24:39 (KJV)

Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.

(1 Timothy 1:17)

“Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen

My Comments to above verses:

“Doesn’t the Bible teach that the Eternal God is invisible to mortal man? Didn’t John plainly state, “No one has seen God at anytime” (1 John 4:12)? According to the Bible, the reason God cannot be seen is because “God is Spirit” (John 4:24). And as Jesus Himself said, “A spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have” (Luke 24:39). The one true and living God described in the Bible is a Spirit which cannot be seen. There is nothing about the Divine Spirit that is visible to the eyes of man. This is why Paul declares: “Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, to God who alone is wise, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen” (1 Timothy 1:17). Clearly the one true and living God described in the Bible is a Spirit which cannot be seen”

“Understanding the relationship between the Father and the Son, that is, between the invisible Spirit and the visible Man, is the key to developing keen spiritual eyesight. The Father and the Son are not two distinct Divine Beings at all, for the Bible states plainly that “GOD IS ONE” (Galatians 3:20). The Eternal Spirit is a single Divine Being who indwells and manifests Himself through a uniquely conceived human being called the Son. We see here two distinct natures, one human and one divine, but not two distinct Divine Beings. If you can grasp this marvelous truth, you will ultimately be able to rightly divide the entire Word of of God ”

Jesus Is God:


Genesis 1:1 (KJV)

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 

Exodus 3:13 (KJV)

And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them,

I say unto them? 

Exodus 3:14-15 (KJV)

And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the

children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you. 15 And God said moreover unto Moses,

Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of

Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: this is my name

for ever, and this is my memorial unto all generations. 

Jesus calls Himself the I AM. (compare with Exodus 3:13-14 • also see

“Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.” 57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet
fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?” 58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.” 59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

Colossians 1:15-18 15 (KJV)

15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. 16 For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. 17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. 18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in
all things He may have the preeminence. 

The Word of God speaks for Itself .

He Became Man

John 8:56-58 (KJV)

56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad.  57 Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? 58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was,I am.  

John 10:30-32 (KJV)

Jn 14:6-10 (KJV)

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. 

1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV)

And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.


“God knew that due to sin He had to make a way for humankind to be saved. He had a plan right from the beginning formed to solve this problem of our sin.

John 1:1 (KJV)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 

John 1:14 (KJV)

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. 

God being a spirit he did not have a fleshly body no skin and bones like us. Therefore he took upon himself a human fleshly body with skin and bones. He became a human being at the incarnation when a baby was born of a virgin by the Holy Ghost. In other words God became the shell or body of Jesus. He then after ministering for three years was crucified upon the cross of Calvary, buried, was resurrected on the third day and as a result took upon himself our sins and we have now a way to be saved and God whose name is Jesus is our only hope.

Philippians 2:7  (KJV)

“But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:”

(Why is He coming in the likeness of men? Because He’s God!) 

Philippians 2:8  (KJV)

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself,…

Colossians 2:8-9  (KJV)

8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

My Friend the only way that you and I can be born again is to obey God’s Word and that involves obeying Acts 38 -39

Acts 2:38 (KJV)

38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

I have followed this plan of salvation myself and I have never been so fulfilled in my life as I am now. I pray you will at least study this in the bible and as you do ask the Lord to show you what the scriptures mean He will.


The Three Terms, Father, Son, Holy Spirit Are Not Three Persons. When I explain that there is only one God and not three gods I give this little illustration. My name is Phyllis Corbin but I am a wife, a mother and a grandmother. When I go to the bank to cash a cheque I cannot sign my name as wife, mother ,or grandmother. I have to sign my check with my name of Phyllis Corbin my real name. Wife, mother and grandmother are just offices I do or jobs so to speak and don’t make me three persons just one person functioning in three different positions. The bank will only accept my real name of Phyllis Corbin. While I function in more than one capacity and occupy more than one office, and wear a number of different hats, I am still just ONE person.This is the same with God . The Father is God in relationship, The Son is God in flesh, and the Holy Spirit is God in spiritual actions. God’s name is Jesus and that is the only name that will save a soul. I pray that that this helps you some and that the Holy Spirit will reveal to you this wonderful truth that has been revealed to me through the Holy Spirit.

A quote from Rev David Houston on this very subject.

“FATHER IS A TERM of relationship. When we speak of God as the Father, we are speaking to Him in terms of our relationship to Him as His born again children. When we pray, we may speak to God as our Father. But we wouldn’t usually say, “The Father is really moving in this service.” Or, “He was filled with the Father.” Instead we would say, “The Spirit is moving.” Or, “He was filled with the Spirit.” The Spirit is not a third divine person, distinct from the Father and the Son.

The Spirit is God is action. Think of these terms this way:

The Father is God in relationship.
The Son is God in flesh
The Holy Spirit is God is spiritual action.

As Father, God is the One who gives anointing. As Son, God is the Anointed One, the Christ. As Spirit, God is the anointing. These are not three distinct divine persons; they are simply three descriptive titles showing us the way God works in our lives to bring salvation. For salvation to come to man, there had to be a sinless man for the sacrifice. For the Son to be a genuine man, He had to be born of a woman. But for the Son to be sinless man, He had to be conceived by God. Therefore, to bring salvation God had to become the Father. But once the Son had died and been raised, God had to begin operating in the world as Spirit. Therefore, to bring salvation the Spirit had begin moving, just as it did when God brought order to His creation in Genesis 1:2.

As the Spirit, God is able to be all places at the same time. 1 Corinthians 15:45 says, “And so it is written, ‘The first man Adam became a living being.’ The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.” It is perfectly correct to say that Jesus is the Spirit, Jesus is the Son, or that Jesus is the Father. As Acts 4:12 affirms, “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.” When a person is filled with the Spirit, who comes to dwell within him? 1 Corinthians 3:16 says, “Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you?” 2 Corinthians 13:5 says, “Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?” And Ephesians 4:6 says, “One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Are there three divine persons living in us? No. Jesus is in us by His Spirit. God is not three distinct divine persons. Neither does He have three identities, three personalities, or three centers of consciousness. God is not three at all, GOD IS ONE! The doctrine of the trinity was developed by philosophers attempting to explain the God of the Bible using the ideas of Greek philosophy. But in Colossians 2:8-9 Paul warns, “Beware lest anyone cheat you through philosophy and empty deceit, according to the tradition of men, according to the basic principles of the world, and not according to Christ. For in Him dwells all the fullness there of”
