The Godhead Pt. 6
The Father Pt. 2
April 16, 2014
We’re in a study on the Godhead and our main verse is First John 5:7—“
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
bear record that we’ve overcome the world
and that we have eternal life. They bear record to the covenant of grace.
We’ve seen how the Holy Spirit is involved in this and how He gives
us life, teaches us truth, makes us walk in holiness, comforts us, and keeps us until the last day.
Last week we started with the Father and we learned that He’s called that
because of His part in giving the inheritance to His Son and to all His children.
This week we’re going to press on a little further and try to see some
other specific things about Him and how He helps His children: He is the Creator of all things, and He is over all
The Holy Spirit was certainly involved in creation, but He wasn’t alone.
Remember He said,
Let us make man in our image
” (Gen. 1:26).
The New Testament shows us that the Father is also involved:
But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him
(I Cor. 8:6).
One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all
(Eph. 4:6). This is important as it relates to the covenant because it shows He has the right to give the inheritance to the Son. He is over all and everything is
Him. So, look at what He does as the God and Father of all: He reveals the
to His children
Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.
In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes: even so, Father; for so it seemed good in thy sight.
All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him
