What is God? "God is a Spirit." (John 4:24). God does not change as He is immutable. Nature is but a revelation of God by the things that God has made. Nature is not God as God is a Spirit. Jesus is the name of God in fullness of revelation as to nature and Essence of His Person. It is the blood name of God and therefore is the only salvation name of God. But God as a Spirit does not possess blood. The same is true of flesh which is earthly. Flesh is flesh and Spirit is spirit. God is Spirit. In order to redeem mankind and creation back to Himself, the God was made flesh and was fashioned as a man. The Word was made flesh and tabernacled among mankind as God manifested in flesh as a human being. This is the truth of Paul's statement that "God was in Christ". (2 Corinthians 5:19a). It is clearly stated by Paul to the church at Ephesus that there is but One Spirit of God, not two or three separate Spirits as individual Persons of God. "There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling." (Ephesians 4:4a). Again, what is God? "God is a Spirit." (John 4:24a). Who is Jesus Christ? Jesus Christ is the Word or Spirit that was made flesh having all the fullness of the Godhead dwelling in Him bodily. (John 1:14; Colossians 2:9). God did not change or transmute into flesh, but was in human flesh as a permanent dwelling of the Spirit. God as Spirit did not cease and desist from being Spirit.

 

Jesus Christ is the Spirit of God that dwelled or housed permanently in a body possessing a spirit, soul, and a body of flesh known as the Son of God; that is, God manifest in the flesh.  Jesus Christ so portrayed God in His body that He is called the express image or character of God. The only nature that Jesus manifested was the divine nature, even though he was human. The term "express image" is used only one time in the Word of God and refers to Christ in being the exact impress or visible representation of God's Substance and Essence; the exact expression of His Person. (Hebrews 1:3)

 

Jesus proclaimed Himself to be the Almighty God. "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." (Revelation 1:8)  Jesus claimed to be the Father since He and the Father are one and the same Spirit. (John 10:30). Jesus Christ is the Spirit of God. "Now the Lord is that Spirit." (2 Corinthians 3:17a).  Jesus clearly stated that a believer must believe that He is the Father is Spirit. "I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins." (John 8:24). "They understood not that he spake to them of the Father." (John 8:27). The Pharisees did not understand that Jesus Christ is the Spirit of God as the Father, and many still do not understand this truth today.

 

Philip asked Jesus to show him the Father and this was Jesus's response. "Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then , Shew us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works." (John 14:9,10). Jesus declares that he is the Father in His Person. Therefore, if you see the works that Jesus does in destroying the works of the devil, you have seen the Father manifesting Himself to the world. If you hear Jesus' words, then you have heard from the Father, for they are Spirit and they are life.

"And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father." (Galatians 4:6). Paul declares that there is but one Spirit of God, not two or three (Ephesians 4:4b). This is the reason it was expedient that Jesus go back to heaven, for while He was in the world, He could not send forth the promise of His Spirit, since He is the Spirit of God. "It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." (John 16:7b). Who is the Comforter, the Holy Ghost?  "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." (John 14:18). This is Jesus Christ in His Spirit as the Father, the Holy Ghost.

 

The Spirit of God is the "Elohim eht", the Almighty God. The "Elohim eht" is the plurality of the attributes and majesty of God as the A through Z, the Alpha through the Omega (Greek), the Aleph through the Tahv (Hebrew). The Almighty God is the El Shaddai. Jesus proclaimed Himself as the "Elohim eht" and the "El Shaddai". "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty." (The Revelation 1:8). Jesus Christ is the Spirit that took on a body of flesh and blood as the Son of God for redemption of mankind. The Spirit form of Jesus Christ could not die, but the flesh form of Jesus Christ as a man could die and shed his blood for our propitiation.  This is declared by Paul in his proclaiming the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ. "For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily." (Colossians 2:9)

 

 "Now the Lord is that Spirit." (2 Corinthians 3:17a). The Lord used by Paul here is the Lord Jesus Christ for there is only one Lord. "One Lord, one faith, one baptism". (Ephesians 4:5). The Spirit of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of God which is the same Spirit as the Father or Holy Ghost, or Word. All these titles refer to the one and same Spirit of God. "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). "One" is from the Greek "heis" meaning "one". The Father, the Word, the Holy Ghost are One and the same Spirit, the different titles referring to the various offices of the Spirit. The Father is the Administrative office of the Spirit being a "Leader or Delegate" to all other offices of the Spirit. The Word is the "Expression" office of the Spirit being the divine "Intelligence, Wisdom, Word, Thought, Understanding, etc." The Holy Ghost is the "Power" office as the Spirit role or form of Jesus Christ. The Son of God is the "Redemptive" office of the Spirit of God. The Son of man is the "Kingdom" or "Judgment" office of the Spirit of God.  The Father, or Word, or Holy Ghost is one and the same Spirit, just varying in office and roles of the Self-same Spirit. And the Word was made flesh; Jesus Christ (Spirit) is come in the flesh (sarx-flesh and blood body, a human being possessing a spirit, soul, and body). (John 1:14; 1 John 4:2).

 

The exterior body of Jesus Christ was a human being. This is the "schema" or outward condition or appearance of a man for Jesus was fashioned as man. His Spirit that dwelled permanently in this body of flesh was Jesus Christ, the Spirit of God being in the form of God. Jesus Christ is the Father of glory and the only true God and eternal life. "And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen." (1 John 5:20,21)
