AGAIN  LET  ME  GIVE  EMPHASIS  TO  THE  FACT,  BOTH  THE  FATHER  AND  THE  SON  ARE  ONE  IN  EVERY  WAY,  WITH  THE  EXCEPTION  THAT  THE  FATHER  IS  GREATER  IN  AUTHORITY.  THIS  IS  VERY  EVIDENT  WHEN  READING  THE  NEW  TESTAMENT.  AS  A  KID  OF  9,  10,  11,  I  COULD  SEE  THAT  BY  THE  GOSPELS  THEMSELVES,  AND  THE  WORDS  OF  CHRIST,  AS  HE  GAVE  HONOR  TO  THE  FATHER,  TOLD  US  TO  PRAY  TO  THE  FATHER,  AND  SAID,  “….I  GO  UNTO  MY  FATHER,  AND  YOUR  FATHER; TO  MY  GOD  AND  YOUR  GOD”  [JOHN 20: 17].

THE  APOSTLE  PAUL  WAS  ALSO  INSPIRED  TO  STATE  IT  VERY  PLAINLY,  “…..THE  HEAD  OF  CHRIST  IS  GOD” [1 COR. 11: 3]

THEN  AGAIN  FROM  PAUL,  “THEN  COMES  THE  END ,  WHEN  HE (CHRIST) SHALL  HAVE  DELIVERED  UP  THE  KINGDOM  TO  GOD,  EVEN  THE  FATHER…..” [1  COR.  15: 24].


THE  FATHER  WILL  EVENTUALLY  COME  TO  THIS  EARTH,  THE  EARTH  MADE  NEW,  AND  WILL  DWELL  WITH  ALL  HIS  CHILDREN,  AS  WE  SEEN  FROM  REVELATION  21  AND  22.


WE  SHALL  LOOK  AT  WHAT  CATHOLICS  AND  PROTESTANTS  SAY  ABOUT  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  IN  OUR  NEXT  STUDY;  WE  SHALL  SEE  IF  WHAT  IS  SAID,  REALLY  PROVES  THEIR  IDEA  OF  THE  HOLY  SPIRIT  BEING  A  THIRD  SEPARATE  INDIVIDUAL  PERSON  IN  THE  GODHEAD.
