The Eternal God

The Eternal God

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

The Bible does not explain God, Who is the Author, but simply declares Him to be from the beginning. No matter how far back you go to define the beginning, God is from eternity.

The name for God here is in the plural, not because there are multiple gods. God is ONE and yet subsists from eternity in three equally Divine Persons (Father, Son and Spirit). The truth of there being ONE God in a plurality of Persons is that the verb ‘created’ is in the singular in the Hebrew language. When we read what the Spirit of God directed the apostle John to write in his Gospel, John 1:1, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” The Word is the LORD Jesus Christ by Whom and through Whom are all things. This same Word became flesh and dwelt (tabernacled) among us, even as God’s glory was revealed in the Old Testament tabernacle that dwelt among them, “…great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh…” (1 Timothy 3:16)

Some attempt to explain the Godhead as if He is One, but simply manifests Himself in three different ways, sometimes as the Father, then at times as the Son and sometimes as the Spirit of God, much like a single actor may have three different roles in a play. Nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, God is ONE from eternity, throughout eternity, but each Person of the Godhead has their distinctive role to play, and the Three are One. As our LORD Jesus Christ declared, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” (John 14:16-17) When our LORD Jesus prayed to the Father, He was praying to the First Person of the Godhead, on behalf of those that the Father had given Him to redeem. When speaking of the Spirit of God, He calls Him another Comforter, separate and distinct from the Father and Himself, but ONE with the Father and the Son in Divine Essence.

In reading the Scriptures we see the defined role of each Person in creation, providence, salvation and judgment, all Three working eternally in perfect harmony to the same end. The Father being the One Who has purposed all things, Ephesians 1:11. In His eternal purpose, He has decreed that ALL the honor and glory belong unto His Son. It is by the Son that the Father has created all things and put all judgment into His hands, John 5:22. He came in the flesh to accomplish the Father’s will, obtained eternal redemption by His righteous life and obedient death and now the Spirit of God has come to draw to the LORD Jesus each one that the Father gave Him, Ephesians 1:3-14.

“Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?” (Exodus 15:11) The LORD (I AM) is the Incomparable One. Even as He saved Israel from its foes, (vv. 11–12) and afterwards, in His goodness, led those He had redeemed by the Passover lamb (a type of Christ) safely to their promised home while the nations looked on awestruck and powerless to arrest His advance. So is the work of God in the salvation of His people. What the Father decreed, the Son has fulfilled, and the Spirit of God reveals.
