In my last blog, I dealt with the issue of the Trinity and our likeness to the image of God. I illustrated how we are in fact in His image with one significant difference in the inability to poly locate. There is a claim that St. Anthony di Padua was seen in two different places at the same time, while in Padua, Italy and the other in Lisbon Portugal. However, humans are not capable of this. In this blog, I would like to illustrate another example of a Trinity. Water is mentioned many times in scripture. I could be that God wants to draw our attention to it.

Here is one example of the use of water. Jesus answered her, “If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him, and he would have given you living water.” (John 4:10 NIV) I find it interesting that people seem to overlook the Trinity nature of water. Common sense and an elementary education would tell you that water has three states, vapor or the gas state that is invisible to the eye, the liquid, and a solid state. All three are similar to the condition of the human body, and The mind is the invisible state, blood the liquid condition and finally a physical or solid form. Water is very much like God in all three conditions the same compound is present, two parts Hydrogen and one part Oxygen. In the Trinity, God is present in all three states. It is written in John 10:30 (NIV) Jesus proclaims, “I and the father are one.” Well, if ice could speak it would say, “I and water vapor are one.”

When we pour ice into a glass of water, all three states of H2O are present the amount of water slowly evaporating, liquid and ice. God in His seated position on His Throne have all three conditions current in One. Like H2O He can appear in three separate forms at will. His spirit, essences, element, nature, fabric call it what you choose is present in each persona. Many people from scientists, to believers of other faiths and even those of the Christian faith find it difficult to comprehend the nature of God as a Trinity. Three beings in one being, but a simple look at water we can discern the mystery. Water can fall from the sky, rest as snow on a mountaintop while flowing in rivers and filling oceans. No one question the fact they are all two parts Hydrogen and one part Oxygen, a Trinity that exists all at the same time for a different task. Once again unlike God who can poly locate and H2O also in three forms at once, humans have not developed the skill to do so thus far.

I hope this straightforward illustration provides you with the understanding that God can do anything He wants. Two God can use poly location to be in different forms at the same time. It is a simple thing for God. Three God essence is the element in each condition much like H2O is the fundamental element in all three forms of water.  Become a follower by entering your email address, thank you.

Humans often think that God is like a man since, it is written Genesis 1:27 (NIV) “So God created mankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.” (Genesis 1:27 NIV) Theologians often want to apply the characteristics of God to men and women to illustrate the likeness. However, the very simplest comparison it the one overlooked. As a result, humans have a distorted view of God as a result of Satan’s deception. Many disbelieve in the concept of a Trinity, three Gods in one altogether. People have developed this notion of an old white-haired breaded man as God, which is more of a picture of Zeus than of the Great “I Am.” Therefore when many non-Christian Faiths hear of the word Trinity they hear Three Gods, not one. Many theologians have gone about explaining this mystery but ignore two straightforward illustrations to provide a clue for understanding the Trinity.

Let us begin our examination into the idea of a Trinity from the standpoint of God’s created image man. Humans have three bodies in one mental, emotional and physical bodies. We shall begin our investigation first with the Mental Body or consciousness. What scientist can determine the height, and depth of consciousness? Next is the emotional body with all of its various expressions of feelings, love, joy, happiness, and sorrow to name a few. Finally, the first two are encased in a physical body. We often hear stories of individuals have out of body experiences when the conscious and emotional bodies leave the physical! We can only guess if the two depart from the frame on a journey during sleep, in what we call a dream. Therefore humans are trinity beings.

n today’s society, we have arrived of a new form of self-glorification the taking of a selfie, the taking of a photo, of yourself, by yourself for your joy and satisfaction. In doing this, you are creating an image of yourself, but this image is not yourself. This image in many cases is two dimensional and not able to move. In a video recording, the image is still two dimensional and cannot escape from the disk. The picture is not you nor is it a total representation of who you are and what you can do. It is only a likeness of you. 

Having examined the human trinity lets apply it to God. First, since God is the creator he can do anything, He wishes. His consciousness has no boundaries and can hear the thoughts of every living creature. Next God not only has emotion he is the emotions; he of love, joy, happiness, and sorrow and every other feeling. Finally, he can occupy a body. Some people think that God cannot employ a body because he is to vest to do so. However, my mind is more significant in dimension than my body. Since man can under a specific condition have an out of boy experience can God do it at will? Here is an example of how simple God can be in three places as three different people at one time. Poly location to manifest himself in three different forms as three distinct beings. It is the one thing we created in His likeness cannot do. As the image in the photo cannot come out of the picture nor can we separate our trinity body into three distinct beings.

Before we close on this simple explanation of the Trinity, God has provided one more example of a Trinity, water. H2O is invisible to the eye, and it surrounds us daily as a gas, a mist, that becomes visible as a cloud. While H2O is in its gases form, it can also be a liquid below the fog of the sky in the oceans, lakes, and rivers. It can flow and move like the moisture in the wind, and it can also seem as icebergs floating in the oceans; three different states of H2O. 

So you see we are a trinity created in God image and likeness but with limited ability unable to poly locate in three distinct forms at the very same time.

Faith Challenge

This is just a sample of one of the days in a 40 day Faith Challenge.

Today I would also invite you to a 30 challenge ending with the final day’s entry. The purpose of the challenge is to build our Faith in the Blessed Trinity, and in our salvation, but more important to be able to hold firmly to the Word of God in our lives.

Begin each day by saying out loud and as often as you remember the following short prayer request. Unlike many of our prayers this is not a shopping list of material things we need, but more of God’s Grace in the form of Faith. Therefore repeat this often: ”Father God in the name of your Son Jesus Christ increase unwavering Faith in my heart, mind, and soul.”

Try and set aside a place in the morning to begin your day in Faith. Use your cell phone to remind you to repeat the daily challenge. I would also suggest you also keep a journal and record any spiritual changes in your life. Thank you and have a blessed day.
