Today, people have been blinded by an unscriptural dogma of a trinity, and that dogma is so universally accepted that to try to see a “One God Person” is all but impossible. The Father, Son and Holy Ghost are three offices or manifestations of the One God. Colossians 2:8-9 says: 8 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. 9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
The Scripture teaches us that
- I and the father are one (John 10:30)
- If you have seen me, you have seen the father (John 14:9)
Father, Son and Holy Ghost are not three persons that make One God. They are three offices that One God has chosen to reveal Himself in at different times. God is a Spirit (1 John 4:24) and no man has seen Him, save the Son (St John 1:18) yet from the beginning He has showed Himself to man in many forms including a body that His Spirit lived in.
He has appeared as a:
King Melchisedec, King of righteousness, King of Salem (or Peace) to Abraham (Genesis 14:8,Hebrews 7:1-3)
Man to Abraham (Genesis 18:1 & 13. “LORD” is the Self Existing One).
Fire in a bush to Moses (Exodus 3:1-15)
Pillar of Fire to Moses and children of Israel(Exodus 13:1)
Cloud to Moses and children of Israel (Exodus 13:1)
Still Small Voice to Elijah (1 Kings 19:12)
Light to St. Paul on the road to Damascus (Acts 9:3-5).
Jehovah of the Old Testament is Jesus of the New Testament
You will see in the lists below, exclusive titles given to God the Father are the same titles given to Jesus.
Both Origin’s trinity (God in three separate persons as opposed to Tertullian’s “three masks.”) and the Unitarian (Jesus is not God) theories just don’t work in the light of these scriptures.

The Holy Spirit is the:

Spirit of Christ (1 Peter 4:14)
Spirit of Lord God (Isaiah 61:1)
Spirit of the Father (Matthew 10:20)
Spirit of the Lord (Isaiah 11:2)
Spirit of the Son (Galatians 4:6)
The Holy Spirit is also the Spirit of Knowledge, Understanding, and Wisdom (Isaiah 11:2).
The trinity doctrine’s foundation is church theology, and creates a confusion that doesn’t exist in the Scriptures. To separate God from the Holy Spirit as two “persons,” creates serious problem deciding who Jesus Father was. Many times Jesus said the Father was, and so does Romans 15:6, yet Matthew 1:18 & 20 clearly states the Holy Ghost was. Obviously the titles are the only difference. “The Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost are one” (1 John 5:7) and this makes Jesus Words very clear. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. St John 14:16-20 There is only One Spirit (Ephesians 4:4)

Jesus is Emmanuel, which is God with us (Matthew 1:23)
There is only One Lord (Ephesians 4:5)
There is only one God and Father of us all (Ephesians 4:6).
