When trying to understand God it is well for us to keep in mind not just our own limitations of comprehension, but how unlimited God is in His. This gulf between God’s ways and ours is incomprehensible. The Bible says, “Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” (Romans 11:33, NKJV). Even so, there are many things revealed in the Bible about the nature and person of God that we can know. Some can be understood; but others we must accept by faith. Used only three times in Scripture, the term “Godhead” designates the divine nature of God (Acts 17:29; Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9). We must be very careful when discussing God’s divine nature that we don’t make Him into something He isn’t. After all, the controversy between Christ and Satan has much to do with the nature and character of God.
I. One in Three Persons
It seems strange that God is three persons in One, yet the Bible often refers to Him in the plural form. For example, these Bible texts use the Hebrew word “elohiym” (Gods) when referring to God.
