GOD exists And Is JESUS the Savior

So I’ve been hearing a lot about the teachings of Heathenism, Unitarianism, and Islam. Although there may be others as well; all these beliefs DENY that Jesus is God, they say that the Godhead (the Trinity) is a lie that was taken from pagan beliefs. Is this true?
What is the Trinity? Well if there’s one thing that must be made clear it’s the fact that the Biblical Trinity was NOT gotten from pagan religions. Why? Because all the apostles of Jesus taught and believed this! But why, why did they believe this, they were all Jews why did they believe all this? Well it’s obvious that they didn’t have a Bible so does that mean the Old Testament Scriptures taught this? Obviously YES!
In the gospel of John the apostle John identified Jesus before His birth as “the Word of God” which according to the Holy Ghost’s inspiration on him was the Word that became flesh. Now do you know that this Word is mentioned exceptionally various times in the Old Testament? Let’s read: “And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day…” Genesis 3:8: do voices WALK? No. But here it reads that God’s Voice was “walking” in the garden, why? Because this was the Word mentioned in John 1:1 that was made flesh as the Lord Jesus. There are also other places where the Word of God is said to have “come/came” to certain people, now understand that is a verb and speaks of action »» : Genesis 15:1 After these things the word of the LORD #came unto Abram…:
»» : 1 Samuel 15:10 Then #came the word of the LORD unto Samuel…:
»» : 2 Samuel 7:4 And it came to pass that night, that the word of the LORD #came unto Nathan…:
»» : 1 Kings 6:11 And the word of the LORD #came to Solomon…:
»» : 1 Kings 12:22 But the word of God #came unto Shemaiah the man of God…:
»» : 1 Kings 16:1 Then the word of the LORD #came to Jehu the son of Hanani against Baasha…:…
and there are a lot of other verses that speak of the Word of God coming to people. Yes you might say, but this is just speaking of things God said to people. Well if that was the case then you must understand that this Word of God is NOT the same as every other word of every other being. This Word possesses power, and this Word is God, this Word is why the men of old could know God. It was not just “sound” from the mouth of God but more than that it was God coming to His people. Whenever a prophet heard the Word of God to them it wasn’t just like hearing any news, rather it was as though they ENCOUNTERED God personally! Yes at times angels in representing God speak the Word of God to men but none the less they never speak the Word of God as their own but as the Word of the LORD GOD.
No matter the argument the fact remains clear that God’s Word is the most important topic discussed in the Old Testament! And also the Word of God could never come to anyone without the Holy Spirit of God working one in one with the Word. Read the Scriptures they prove this!
But what does all this mean? In all my years of study of the Bible I’ve had issues understanding the Trinity in the Old Testament but as you can read clearly in the Old Testament the Trinity has always been there. God (the Father), the Word of God (Jesus the Christ), and the Spirit of God (the Holy Ghost). It’s really funny the amount of people that do not notice this, and this is the truth. Right from the beginning God has always been triune, but until Jesus God was not triune in persons but triune in person. Only in the New Testament is God one in three “persons” but prior to this God was three in one, that is in personality.
John wrote: “For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.” 1 John 5:7: this is speaking of the Trinity of God in personality BEFORE the Word of God was made flesh at the birth of Christ. You see God is ONE and only ONE, but “God” is not a name it is a word (always remember that). Idols are called “God”, angels are called “God” as well, even humans in some cultures were believed to have been “God” too, so exactly how was the true Creator meant to differentiate Himself from all these false “God’s”? They were all beings of their own, who were acclaimed to be able to do exactly what God can do, they were even believed to have been the creator(s) of the whole universe.
So exactly what could God be that they (false gods) can not be that would draw all men unto Him?: “Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which God did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know: Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain: Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.” Acts 2:22-24: Now please I want you to note down the word “foreknowledge”, in the context here by virtue of that word it means God has ALWAYS had the birth, death, and resurrection of Jesus in His knowledge, now understand that this doesn’t mean God was thinking about this but rather God KNEW this! In this sense we are therefore at the conclusion that the LORD God had KNOWN His Son right from before the beginning of the world and this my friend is the difference.
The only thing that made God different from those false gods, the only thing that made God true and they false was that He and His Word and His Spirit although one were all in harmony one WITH the other and in so doing the Voice of God walked and came and spoke to people, the Spirit of God anointed men that they would be holy and know the truth that they would be sons of God and be blessed. And by so doing love for God sprouted within the man so that he knew God as His personal Creator.
The same issue is here as well where you find God making His unique Word (His good news / Gospel) flesh (human) and in so doing personalized His Word as the man Jesus who is Himself God. A lot of people then might ask, but why then is the Spirit of God personalized when it was only the Word that was made flesh? Well the answer is simple, wherever the Word of God is the Spirit is with the Word so when the Word was personalized so was the Spirit within the Word (Jesus) because Jesus is the complete Word of God which is the gospel of salvation which testifies and declares the Father.
YOU are triune too with a spirit, soul, and body so live for Him, live for God our Saviour!****
John 1:14 “And the Word was MADE FLESH, and DWELT AMONG US, (and we beheld HIS GLORY, the glory as of the ONLY BEGOTTEN of the Father,) FULL of grace and truth.”***
***1 John 4:2 “Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that CONFESSES that Jesus Christ IS #COME IN THE FLESH is of God:”****Jesus #IS God and the Savior of the whole world!
