Jesus prior to his earthly coming.
« on: May 24, 2017, 04:38:12 PM »
For I am the LORD your God

This quick quote in Isaiah, who is it speaking?

In a lot of the OT we see God speaking directly saying I am God, there is no other etc etc.

Now the Trinity states that God is one being, 3 persons. The Father is not the Son, the Son not the Father etc etc.

Who is speaking in the OT when God says I am the LORD your God, is it the Father, Jesus or the Holy Spirit.

God is spirit according to the text. So Jesus prior to coming to Earth was a spirit, and was God, and God is Spirit, and so I am assuming so is the Father, and no doubt the Holy Spirit. Does this mean God is 3 spirits or 1? If he is 3 spirits, which one is the one speaking when it says I am the LORD your God, is it Father, Son or Holy Spirit?

A personal question, when you yourself think towards God, who is it you focus on? The Father, Son or Holy Spirit?

Just some random thoughts.

Cheers

Im not a Trinitarian... but i think i can answer for them.

The father is not the son, the son is not the HS and the HS is not the Father.

Together they are God.   They would argue that in the OT, that say presumably the father was speaking he was speaking as God also on the part of the other persons of the trinity. 
The explanation is there... its just whether or not you buy into it as an explanation for the nature of God.

I was thinking to start a thread about how you personally see God/Jesus etc.. as well... to see how people viewed them day to day with there talking to God.

As for me..  I talk to Elohim....  And never to the Holy spirit... but he (god) does pour it out on to us...

Nearly always to Elohim, always recognising Jesus.  I tend to ask God Why! and What should i do next! and thank him for everything and all glory belongs to him...

  But when have moral dilemmas, temptations etc..  i am always thinking about Jesus Teachings and applying them as best i can... well thats a lie... not the best i can... i can do better.

 Im not asking God what to do in those senses, he has already told us through Jesus.... Jesus has already shown us the way, we only need to petition God through Recognising Jesus as our Lord and Saviour.  In Job it talks about Jesus being our Mediator between us and God. 
John 15:16
Quote
You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit and that your fruit should abide, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name, he may give it to you.
I dont really talk or pray to Jesus directly at all.
Proverbs 8:30 "then I was beside him, like a master workman, and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, rejoicing in his inhabited world and delighting in the children of man."
