The Bible Says Our GOD Is Triune GOD - THE FATHER, THE SON, THE HOLY SPIRIT



Matthew 3:13-16 NIV







The Baptism of JESUS





13Then JESUS Came from Galilee to the Jordan to be baptized by John. 


14But John tried to deter HIM, saying, 


“I need to be baptized by YOU, and Do YOU Come to 

me?”



15JESUS Replied, 


“Let it be so now; it is proper For US To Do this to fulfill all righteousness.” 



Then John consented.





16As soon as JESUS Was Baptized, HE 

Went Up out of the water. 








At that moment heaven was opened, 

and HE Saw The SPIRIT of GOD 


Descending like a dove and Alighting on 


HIM.








17 And a Voice from heaven Said,


“This Is MY SON, WHOM I Love; With 

HIM I AM Well Pleased.”













Important Notes






A Voice from heaven - A voice from GOD The FATHER. 


This was probably heard by all who were present. This voice, or sound, was repeated on the mount of transfiguration;  Matthew 17:5; Luke 9:35-36; 2 Peter 1:17


"This Is MY SON, WHOM I Love; With HIM I AM Well Pleased. Listen To HIM!"


It was also heard just Before HIS Death, and was then supposed by many to be thunder,  John 12:25-30. 


It was a public declaration that JESUS Was The MESSIAH.


"FATHER, Glorify YOUR Name!" 


Then a Voice Came from heaven, 



"I Have Glorified It, And Will Glorify It Again."



MY Beloved SON - This Is The Title Which GOD HIMSELF Gave to JESUS. It expresses the nearness of HIS relation to GOD The FATHER, and The Love of The FATHER for The SON, Hebrews 1:2. It implies that HE Was Equal With GOD, Hebrews 1:5-8; John 10:29-33; John 19:7. The term "SON" is expressive of love of the nearness of HIS relation to GOD, and of HIS Dignity and Equality with GOD.



I AM Well Pleased - or, I AM Ever Delighted. The language implies that HE(FATHER) Was constantly or uniformly Well Pleased With HIM(SON); and in this solemn and public manner the FATHER Expressed HIS Approbation of HIS SON as The REDEEMER of the world.



The Baptism of JESUS has usually been regarded as a 

striking manifestation of the Doctrine of The TRINITY, or 

the doctrine that there are Three PERSONS in The 

Divine Nature:



(1) There is The Person of “JESUS CHRIST,” The SON of 

GOD, baptized in Jordan, elsewhere declared to be 


equal with GOD, John 10:30.



(2) The HOLY SPIRIT Descending in a bodily form upon 

The SAVIOR. The HOLY SPIRIT Is also Equal With The 

FATHER, or Is also GOD, Acts 5:3-4.



(3) The FATHER, Addressing The SON, and Declaring 

that HE Was Well Pleased With HIM.



It is impossible to explain this transaction consistently 

in any other way than by supposing that there are Three 

Equal PERSONS in The Divine Nature or Essence, and 

that Each of The Three Equal PERSONS sustains an 

important part in the work of redeeming people.





Blogger's Comment :




The heretics - Jehovah's Witness followers say, "The Doctrine of The Trinity is likened to a weird, monster GOD with three heads."



But it is absolutely not true! 



The Bible clearly teaches us that our GOD Is "The Triune GOD" and refers to The Three Persons(FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT) in ONE GODHEAD as seen in the Bible passages above and also it is a undeniable truth confessed by many true believers who have lived throughout the Christian history.


The FATHER Sent HIS ONLY Begotten SON to Die for our sin and HIS HOLY SPIRIT Came to Testify that JESUS Is The LORD.


Glory to The FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT forevermore!



Amen.
