(RA-2312, Program: 2918, Air date: 07.22.18)

  1. INTRODUCTION
    1. There is only one true God.
      1. Jeremiah 2:11
    2. There are many things about God that we cannot understand. But we don’t have to understand God in order to know Him.
    3. The Old Testament book of Isaiah tells us of the prophet’s encounter with God.
      1. Isaiah 6:1-5
  2. THE ONE TRUE GOD IS THE TRIUNE GOD (Isaiah 6:1-3)
    1. The great Christian distinctive is the Trinity.
    2. We do not worship three gods; we worship one God revealed in three persons.
    3. To deny the Trinity is the root of many heresies.
    4. The only way to understand the doctrine of the Trinity is by divine revelation.
    5. We don’t have to understand the Trinity in order to believe in the Trinity.
    6. There is only one God, so there is nothing to compare Him to.
      1. Isaiah 40:18
    7. We see reflections of God’s triune nature in His creation:
      1. Time – past, present and future
      2. Space – height, width and depth
      3. Man – body, soul and spirit
    8. We see evidences of the Trinity in the Old Testament:
      1. In the vision of Isaiah
        1. Isaiah 6:1
        2. Isaiah 6:3-5
        3. Isaiah 6:8
      2. In the creation story
        1. Genesis 1:1
          1. The name for God in this passage is the Hebrew word Elohim, which is plural in nature.
        2. Genesis 1:26
          1. John 1:1-3
        3. Job 26:13
      3. In the Great Confession of Israel
        1. Deuteronomy 6:4-5
          1. “The Lord our God is one Lord” – is translated from “Jehovah our Elohim is one.” The word Jehovah is singular; the word Elohim is plural. The word “one” is “echad,” meaning a collective one.
            1. Other places in Scripture denoting a collective one:
              1. Genesis 2:24
              2. Genesis 11:6
              3. Numbers 13:23

          4. John 14:6
          5. John 14:9
  3. THE ONE TRUE GOD IS THE HOLY GOD (Isaiah 6:3)
    1. This is His inward character of perfect goodness.
    2. God is holy, and He will punish sin.
    3. We do not break the laws of God; they continue to stand. We are broken on them when we sin.
    4. Seraphim – angelic creatures with six wings
      1. Two wings cover their eyes
        1. God is too holy for these angels to look upon.
      2. Two wings cover their feet
        1. In shame they stand in the presence of God.
      3. Two wings are used to fly
        1. They are always at the ready to serve God.
  4. THE ONE TRUE GOD IS THE SAVING GOD (Isaiah 6:5-8)
    1. In Isaiah chapter 5, Isaiah mentions six different woes, in which he denounces sin. Then, he sees the Lord; and he says, “Woe is me.”
    2. The Lord Jesus is the only one who can repair a broken life.
    3. This passage of Scripture is a picture and a prophecy of the blood of Jesus Christ that cleanses from all sin, for without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin.
    4. There is only one way to know this one true God, and that is through the blood sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ.
      1. John 14:6
  5. CONCLUSION
    1. Do you know Jesus personally? If not, you can pray to Him today by asking Him to come into your life.
