The Nature of God – II

The Nature of God – II

In the previous discussion, I cleared ambiguities in the use of ‘God,’ established the nature of God, and the key characteristics of God.

It has been against the backdrop that, the propriety (or otherwise) of everything we do in our worship life (and the passion/conviction with which we do them) depends on what we know about this God, and so it is very important to find the truth about who this God really is; what this God is like, what this God requires us to do and/or not to do, etc. Otherwise a lot of the things we may be doing in worship, and a lot of the things we may be doing and/or refusing to do in life, may be in vain; inadvertently.

Well, as Deuteronomy 6:4 says, “Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!” What does it mean to say that the Lord is one? Also, is it safe to say that God the father works by Himself, and also through the Son, and the Holy Spirit; or they work together at the same time at all times? We will explore these and more in this discussion.

 

Exposition:

God is One

Throughout history, several gods have existed, but none can compare to God (Yhovah; the Father) in power and might. He is one of a kind! (Deuteronomy 4:35, Isaiah 45:5, Mark 12:29) And it was significant for God (Jehovah) to reiterate His ‘uniqueness’ to His people; remember, Moses was speaking to the Israelites, and had hitherto cautioned them not to make idols or use anything physical (not even the sun, moon and stars) to represent God (Yhovah; not ‘Elohiym), since they had only heard His voice and not seen Him physically (Deuteronomy 4:15-19); of course, God is spirit.

The Israelites were about to go to the promised land, and the people they were going to live among were pagans and thus worshipped several gods, some made of human hands. There was therefore the need for this strong caution for them not to stray and arouse the anger of God (Yhovah).

Interestingly, we also live in a country where other gods (made of human hands) exist, but we must be resolute that there is only one true God (Yhovah; the Father), and He alone deserves our worship.

 

The Crux of the Matter

In the previous discussion, we established that in many instances, ‘God’ refers to the Team: (a) The Father, (b) The Word (Also the Son: Immanuel/Jesus Christ) and (c) The Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:19, John 15:26, 1 John 5:7) And thus, when referring to God in our discussions/dealings, we have to be clear as to whether we are referring to ‘Elohiym (the ‘God Team’) or Yhovah/’Adonay (the Father) and therefore use the appropriate personal pronouns; either ‘They/Them/Their’ or ‘He/Him/His’ respectively, because in Genesis 1:26 (and also Isaiah 6:8) the plural personal pronoun ‘us‘ is used; a good example for us. Let us explore this some more…
