John 1:1 to 3. Jesus Christ, God the Father, and the Holy Ghost, are in one Omnipotent Spirit.

"Mark 16:15 preach the gospel to every creature. Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega,... 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, ... have right to the tree of life, and... enter ... the city."

Let us study the gospel of John, verse by verse, from the beginning to the end, taking small portions at a time. "John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." These three verses are about the beginning, God, and the creation.

John the gospel 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. It begins with 'in the beginning.' Genesis 1:1 says In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. It was the beginning of the creation of God. In John the beginning was, before the creation. It is not the study of the beginning of God, but we study how God has existed already in the beginning. Now, the verse says that in the beginning was 'the Word'. That is, a person 'the Word' has existed in the beginning. The verse continues to say the Word was with God. This person was with another person, and he was 'God'. God also existed in the beginning. So, there were two persons in the beginning. John 4:24 says God is a Spirit: So, God is a Spirit whereas we are flesh. Revelation 19:6 says the Lord God omnipotent reigneth. So, God is omnipotent. Job 42:2 and Psalm 147:5 also say that God can do anything. There is nothing that is impossible to God. The verse continues to say; and the Word was God. So, 'the Word' was also God and so, there were two person in the beginning they they both were God. But, God is a (one) Spirit. And so, these two persons are in one Spirit. (For details, please refer in the link to another study; Link is: "God Three in One- video", "God Three in One- lesson").

In verse one, we see that there were two persons were together in the beginning. Let us see verse 2. "2 The same was in the beginning with God." The same God, which were two persons (God), is with another person, who is God. It appears to be a repetition, if we are not familiar with the language of God. It is not a repetition, but it says that the persons in verse 1 is with another God, who is a third person. Genesis 1:2 also introduce this third person as the Spirit of God. "Genesis 1:2 ... And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters." So, there were three persons in one omnipotent Spirit, who is God. Since all the three were in the Spirit God, they are individually and collectively called "God". They were three persons or souls in one Omnipotent Spirit body. If we look at the persons of God, God is three. If we look at the power of God, he is one.

Verse 3 says, "3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made." It says that all things were made by him. If we take the context strictly, it began with 'the Word'. Or if we take the substance and the wholesome word, it says about God, who is "Three in One" or we may say that it refers to the omnipotent Spirit body of God. It says that everything is created by God and the three persons were involved and it was done with the omnipotent power of God. Ephesians 3:9 says, ... God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:. So, it was done by Jesus Christ, who was 'the Word' and was God in the Spirit at that time. Science says that nobody can create even an atom. But God has created the entire universe and all things in it, including the living beings from insects to big whales, including the intelligent human beings. So, it is proof that nothing is impossible to God and so he is omnipotent. Psalm 139:4 says there is not a word in my tongue, but, lo, O LORD, thou knowest it altogether. That is, even before a word is formed in our tongue or mind, God knows it. There are billions of people live in this world. The Bible says that God will judge everyone of us according to what we have done. So, not only God knows what we are doing, God records everything for his judgment. Job 34:21&22 & 26:6 also say the same thing. So, God is omniscient. That is, he knows everything. Psalm 139:7 Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? 8 If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. 9 If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; 10 Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. So God is everywhere. He fills the entire universe by self. If there is a space, God fills there and he fills the space. So, God is omnipresent. So far, we see that God has a soul, and so God is a person. Our soul is kept in our flesh, which is our body. So also, the souls of God is in his Spirit, which is his body. His Spirit, which is his body, is omnipotent, omniscient, & omnipresent. We must know one more very important truth about God. He is one of his kind and there is no other God beside him. Deuteronomy 4:35 says the LORD he is God; there is none else beside him. 6:4 says, Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 1 King 8:60, Mark 12:32, & 1 Corinthians 8:4, all say the same thing. So, there is only one God. Genesis 1:1 says, In the beginning God created the heaven & the earth. Here, God is singular, and so, it refers to the Omnipower Spirit, that has 3 persons. So, creation is the work of three persons. Verse 2. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. So, the Spirit of God was involved in creation. Verse 3. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. Here, we see that one God said to create the light & the other God created the light. If we continue to read, we will see that one God keep saying to create on verses 3, 4, 6, 9, 14, 20 &24. Another God created them on verses 3, 4, 7, 10, 16, 21 &24. Since, God the Father is above the others, we may say that he said to create and Jesus Christ was creating them. Let us verify it. Turn to Ephesians 3:9. At the end of the verse it says, God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: So, God the Father was telling what to do and how to do it, Jesus Christ was creating them, and the Holy Ghost was helping them. So, creation was the work of all 3 persons, even though God has done it by Jesus Christ.
