The One Who Dwells Between The Cherubim

Then Hezekiah prayed before the Lord, and said: “O Lord God of Israel, the one who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth.”  2 Kings 19:15.

God, Elohim, Strong’s #430. God in His fullness; also “gods,” meaning the gods of the nations. The first occurrence is in the first verse of the Bible. A majority of the times this name is used are in reference to God as the Creator, it can also refer to heathen gods or idols.

Many scholars believe that the root is ‘el or ‘elah, which means “strong,” or “mighty.” Among Christians, it has long been understood that ‘Elohim, which is a plural form in Hebrew, reveals that God has more than one part of His being. We call those distinct parts “the Father,”  “the Son,” and “the Holy Spirit.”  Let’s be clear here, we have one God, not three gods.

I like to think of the “Trinity” as “water,” it can be frozen,(ice cube) it can be boiled, (steam) and all three are still water.

    The Trinity becomes more of a mystery to me the older I get. At the same time, it becomes clearer and clearer to me that one God is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. As the old song says: “The Bible tells me so.”

      i agree. My son-in law believes the Trinity came from The Church of Rome. All that aside Jesus never sinned, all His statements about His Father and the replies of His Father would say otherwise. He (Jesus) only did what He saw His Father do. How can this be otherwise. ——Always the questions. Hopefully they lead to great answers based in truth and Grace.

    I’ve heard you son-in-law’s opinion before. The Bible teaches that The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. The Bible teaches that there is only one God. There is only one mysterious solution. We have a Triune God. Thankfully, he is asking the questions. When they stop asking is when one really gets concerned.
