The Mystery of the Godhead

Many people believe "Godhead" to mean a Trinity of Three Persons who comprise or make up the Godhead; that is, "the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost". But when looking up the definition of "Godhead", we see the Greek word "theotes" which means "divinity" from "theos" meaning "a magistrate, the Supreme Divinity". Nowhere does it mention a trinity as most would expect.  


Paul writes to the church at Colosse about the mystery of God. "That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgment of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ." (Colossians 2:2). Paul goes on to say that in Jesus Christ is hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. (Colossians 2:3). He warns the church about this mystery of God, lest any man should beguile you with enticing words.


"Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ."  (Colossians 2:8). The truth concerning the Godhead requires the closest scrutiny so as not to be deceived, and Paul is elaborating on this precise point of deception. "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." (Provers 14:12).  Paul plainly states the bottom line for the revelation of the "mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ"; that is, "For in him (Jesus Christ) dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily." (Colossians 2:9). How many bodies or persons are in the Godhead? "Bodily" is "one, singular body" indicating there is but One Person of the Godhead which has all the fullness of the Godhead, the Supreme Divinity.


A key word is "dwelleth" from the Greek "katoikeo" which means "to house permanently". Therefore, "in him", something or someone houses permanently or makes a permanent abode. Who or What makes a permanent abode or houses permanently forever "in him"?  Paul states "all the fullnes of the Godhead" dwelleth or houses permanently "in him".  How much of the Godhead houses permanently in Christ Jesus?  One half, or one third of the Godhead dwelleth in him. No! "All" or "100%" of the Godhead or Supreme Divinity houses permanently in the One Body of Jesus Christ; not a three person Godhead, neither a two person Godhead, but One and One only Person of God. 


The word "bodily" comes form the Greek word "somatikos" which means "corporeally or physically". "Corporeal" refers to the material substance of the body and is opposed to spiritual. It means to "come in the flesh", "to come in bodily human flesh and blood"; not bodies (plural), but one singular body of flesh; i.e., "The Word made flesh".  The Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost are One and the Selfsame Spirit as stated by John. (1 John 5:7). Therefore, the Father, who is the Word or Holy Ghost was made flesh as a human being and dwelled among us as the "Word (God) made flesh" as the Singular Person of the Godhead Jesus Christ. Therefore, in Jesus Christ dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead in a singular body of flesh as the express image of the One Person of God. There are not three persons in the Godhead; neither are there two persons comprising the Godhead. There is one Solitary Single Person of God; "Jesus Christ".


If one believed the account of Paul to the Colossians as to the Godhead, one could only conclude that somehow Jesus Christ is the Father or Word, who is the Same Spirit as the Holy Ghost, that is manifested in One body of flesh as the express image of the One Person of God. "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory." (1 Timothy 3:16). Who was manifested in the flesh declaring the eternal Godhead? None other than Jesus Christ, the One Person of God having the fullness of the Godhead housing in Him permanently forever in His one body of flesh. This is the true God and eternal life.  


How many Persons are in the Godhead that you serve? There can only be one God in one Person, not One God in three Persons. For three Persons would have three separate and distinct personalities due to them being separate. No man calleth Jesus Christ Lord (Jehovah) save by the Holy Ghost.
