The Spirit, the Water, and the Blood

1.    Spirit

2.    Water

3.    Blood

4.    The Plague

5.    The Uncleanness in All of Us.

6.    The Priest and the Scripture

7.    The Word and the Blood

 There are three witnesses to the plague of death that is among all the people of this earth.  The three witnesses are: The Spirit, the water, and the blood.  They are here on a mission of mercy and grace to a sin-cursed world.  

The dirt and filth of sin is everywhere.   Death and Hell are waiting for all of us.  We are found so woefully unclean.  We so desperately need a remedy through the words of a priest to make us clean with the blood of a pure Lamb of God.

1 John 5:8:

“And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

The first witness is the Spirit:

1.       Spirit

Spirit, spirit, is everywhere.

Question: What is God?

Answer: God is a Spirit.

“God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”[John 4:24]

God is a Spirit!  King David by the Spirit had this following discourse with God in [Psalm 139:7-12]:

“Whither shall I go from thy spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence? If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there. If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea; Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me. If I say, Surely the darkness shall cover me; even the night shall be light about me. Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee.”

God is a Spirit.

“The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: because the spirit [SPIRIT] of the Lord bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass.” [Isaiah 40:7]

How can a man explain this?

Well, when God bloweth upon the grass, it forms an awesome sight.  When you realize the grass represents the people of this world, you will begin to fear the LORD:

“For our God is a consuming fire.” [Hebrews 12:29]

God is a Spirit.

GOD the Father is Spirit, and Jesus Christ, the SON of GOD is the express image of GOD, WHO is a SPIRIT [This is Scripture with Scripture].

“Who [THIS IS THE SON] being the brightness of his [THIS IS THE FATHER] glory, and the express image of his person [THIS IS THE FATHER], and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he [THIS IS THE SON] had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty [THIS IS THE FATHER] on high;” [Hebrews 1:3].

Conclusion: Jesus is GOD come in the flesh!

Proof Text: [1 Timothy 3:16]

“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.”

Jesus Christ is “all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.”

[Colossians 2:9] “For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” Amen!

Now, let us go to the book of beginnings: Genesis chapter one, verses twenty-six through twenty-eight: we find that plurality is enclosed [or embedded] in a singular God  

 We read: “And God [singular] said, Let us [plural] make man in our [plural] image, after our [plural] likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.  So God” [singular] “created man in his [singular] own image, in the image of God [singular] created he [singular] him; male and female created he [singular] them.  “And God” [singular] “blessed them, and God [singular] said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.” [Genesis 1:26-28]

[Agreement = >1 is in 1]

Thus far, in this foundational insight given to us by the Holy Ghost in the Scripture [the Authorized Version of 1611], the words of God reveal … that God is a PERSON with more than one PERSON within HIM [a plurality being enclosed [or embedded] within Him.   

[Agreement = >1 is in 1]

Then, the question will now arise: How many PERSONS is this ONE GOD? 

What does the word of God show us?

God, the Father

The first PERSON is revealed to be the FATHER.  This basic truth is shown redundantly in the following verses:

·         1 Corinthians 8:6: “But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.”

·         Galatians 1:1: “Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)”

·         Galatians 1:3: “Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,”

·         Ephesians 6:23: “Peace be to the brethren, and love with faith, from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.”

·         Philippians 2:11: “And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

God, the Son

Second, we can see that second PERSON of the PERSONS in the ONE GOD is very definitely ... Jesus Christ. 

“And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:” [Ephesians 3:9]. 

All things that were ever created, were created by Jesus.  

Conclusion: Jesus Christ is the creator of Heaven and Earth!  Jesus Christ is JEHOVAH!

God, the Holy Spirit

The third PERSON is the Spirit [Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost].  See the following:

·         John 7:39: “(But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Ghost was not yet given; because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)”

·         Acts 2:4: “And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”

·         1 Corinthians 12:3: “Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.”

·         Ephesians 3:5: “Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;”

·         Ephesians 4:30: “And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.”

1 John 5:8:

“And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

The second witness is the Water:

Next - 2. The Water
