    I think it is the answer to the trinity/it talks about how not everyone will see him as the Lord but we will, only the ones who will be willing and able to follow his teachings will know him and he promises that not only will he and God always be in our hearts but so will the Holy Spirit, the spirit of truth/I see that as that still small voice/and keep my commandants is ok you guys if you love me do what I ask; and oh by the way when you do watch out because people wont like for it at all but that's ok they don't know me as the Lord, only you do

      "Trinity" & GOD shouldn't be used in SAME sentence!  "Only Three?"  HE "fills the heaven & earth"(Jer23:24)!  Can u 'count' that? 
      DON'T LIMIT GOD!

      I didn't think I was limiting God at all Rather just saying what the Lord said that he is god/ god is the lord and the spirit of truth is God and the Lord in other words as in Jeremiah he is everywhere/ he is everything/just as you just said/kiss

      Don't let "the philosophy of men"(Col2:8) deceive you!  There is but ONE Spirit (ICor12) not a father & son as men but ONE Spirit who operates in GLORIES; simultaneously! 
      Merry Christmas!

    Us human beings think in our own way. I reckon that is a good thing as it generally keeps us from drowning and the like. Omnipotent and omnipresent escapes our normal breathing in and out. Someone once told me that the Godhead was 3, only the trinity and nothing less and nothing more. I asked if that included omnipresence. The answer was of course a resounding yes. Explaining that omnipresent meant that God was in dogs and trees and cars and roofs. He worried for the trinity.
    How could God beat my cancer for my wife and child if God is limited to the three. How can a miracle of no more hate happen if God is confined to the three or worse yet the one?
    I await anxiously for the next restriction that man places on God. It is a slight suffering so I look forward to it.
    Like it or not, God is in my answer.

      I like it! lol  "By my stripes *I* "AM"  healed" (Is53:5)! SAY DAILY & THANK HIM! 
      In "cars" too! Ever been so drunk u wonder "How'd the "car" get here?" I have! 
      Not "worst" BUT "MORE;" = "ALL IN ALL" (Eph4:6;ICor5:28-29)!

    Jasper, it has always been my belief that Jesus is the Son of God, not God Himself.

      Me too, and to me those are Jesus' words saying so.  If we are right, the Council of Nicea got it wrong.

      "Council" say "GOD is "Three"(Trinity)! U say two; "Father & Son?" I say BETTER than Houdini; WHATEVER/WHENEVER/WHEREVER; simultaneously (ICor12)! "Council" has really LOST SOULS! 
      DON'T LIMIT GOD for HE "IS" GOD!
      "Son of GOD"="two" GODS!

      Jesus himself said he was the son of god. And that's why he told us to pray to the father through him. When did that change. And who is this council people speak about. Jesus is the lord and his father is the almighty God.

      "Pray to the Father (ONE SPIRIT) through HIM" (aka Holy Spirit;Jn14:26 "in my name") which is how HE speaks to us according to Acts 1:2~! NO CHG! Google "Nicaea Council!"
      JESUS "is" GOD (aka ONE SPIRIT)!

    WOW!  Have you ever heard "When in Rome, do as the Romans do?"  JESUS did just that for our "IGNORANT" selves (human)!  GOD "manifested HIMSELF in the flesh...[was] believed on in the world, received up into glory" (I Timothy 3:16) and was "in the world and the world was made by HIM" (John 1:10) but humans think THE ALMIGHTY GOD is incapable of that (Thanks 'Council'! Yup, they got it wrong AGAIN Charlie!)!!!

    JESUS didn't want to "blow man's mind" (Look how we "think" TODAY!), and is why HE came in the "GLORY" [LISTEN!] "AS OF" the only begotten of the Father!  In 'Rome' (the world) HE had to 'relate to humans!'  HE almost 'blew Joseph's mind' when Mary told him the HOLY GHOST impregnated her but HE 'straightened that out' via "a dream" (Matt 1:20)! If you know Scripture, look how many times HE "blew men's minds!" That's why John 4:23-24 tells us 'WE' (human) "MUST" worship HIM in [LISTEN!] "SPIRIT" and in TRUTH" (REPEAT: "SPIRIT/MUST!") otherwise we (human) will look at Scripture as father and son!

    THE GREATEST ALLEGORY IN SCRIPTURE!       

    Whenever ANYTHING in flesh comes into 'world,' equals "sin" but GOD had POWER (Same POWER (Acts 1:8) we have to HELP us (John 14:26;16:13); "IF" we've "WAITED" (Acts 1:4) and didn't (II Corinthians 5:21)!  THE SPIRIT "manifested HIMSELF into flesh" and subjected HIMSELF to 'sin' for us; hence, Son!  THE 'SAME' SPIRIT remained in heaven as well (John 3:13)!  You "think" THE ALMIGHTY can't do this?  Not more POWERFUL than 'Houdini?'  DON'T LIMIT GOD!

    Well, as usual, we didn't "OBEY" (Jn 4:23-24;"MUST") and "WAIT" (Acts 1:4) for "HELP" (John 14:26; 16:13) to "worship in Spirit and in Truth;" therefore "thinking" with our peanut brains vs "in Spirit and in Truth!"

    Thanks to "The Council," we now have a Big Daddy (Father) and a Little Son (Jesus) instilled in our minds when Scripture says "I AM" the LORD, and THERE IS "NO GOD" beside me: I girded thee, THOUGH THOU HAS NOT KNOWN ME" (Isaiah 45:5)!

    GOD operates in "GLORIES" ("...the "GLORY" [LISTEN!] "AS OF" the only begotten of the Father..." John 1:14) and until we realize this; we will continue to believe 'The Council' and see (humanly) Father and Son! 

    'The Council' (Satan) accomplished what they set out to do:  LOSE SOULS!

    John 14:16=John 16:7 ("*I* will send!")
    John 14:28=SAME SPIRIT (I Corinthians 12); not subjected to "world"="GREATER!" 
    John 15:10="Father's" commandments"=SAME SPIRIT=John14:15 ("*MY* commandments!")!
    John15:21=SAME ["ONE"] SPIRIT!

      If you gave Charlie the impression that JESUS is GOD & you BELIEVE; you should defend w/Scripture (IITim3:16) to show your love of GOD!
      I have WORD (GOD) to back me up Charlie. However when man worships w/"gut" (Phil3:9) this happens

    Since the SCRIPTURES CLEARLY state and prove that JESUS IS NOT GOD, THAT HE IS THE SON OF GOD,  I take OFFENSE from your FALSE  PRESUMPTION and your INVALID QUESTION because a Christian that truly knows and understands scripture and JESUS KNOWS  JESUS IS NOT GOD  but He IS THE SON OF GOD WHO HAS BEEN GIVEN THE KINGDOM UNTIL HE RETURNS IT TO THE FATHER.
    Matt 28:18-20    And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth.  19 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen.

    1 Cor 15:20-28    But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. 23 But each one in his own order: Christ the firstfruits, afterward those who are Christ's at His coming. 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. 27 For "He has put all things under His feet." But when He says "all things are put under Him," it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. 28 Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.
    NKJV

      Don't take offense.  The question was directed to those Christians who believe (and some do) that Jesus Christ is "the one God."

      OK. GOOD.  I am glad to hear you believe the truth that He IS the SON of God,    It looked like you were promoting it as the majority on here believe that and try to push it.  offense cancelled.  God bless you

      Charlie: A "portion" (aka GLORY;Heb1:3;8-12) of the SAME SPIRIT(ICor12:12)came&DIED(Acts20:28)not only for our 'sins' but also to feel how we feel "in the flesh"(Heb4:15)to "judge righteously" (Jn5:22-23) then I Cor15:20-28 takes place reconcilin
