Question 13 - The Lord is one or three?

Deuteronomy 6:4 NKJV - ""Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one!"
           1 John 5:7 NKJV - "For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one."
           1 Corinthians 8:6 NKJV - "yet for us there is one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we for Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, through whom are all things, and through whom we live."
                Deuteronomy 6:4, “The Lord our God the Lord is one”. It is true. God said to Moses in Exodus 3:14, “I AM WHO I AM”.
                At first the Lord God was in the form of the Spirit of God, who was hovering over the face of the waters. Refer Genesis 1:2. So, there is no differentiation in spirit before the construction of this world. The spirit is one. Thus, the Lord is one.
                For the sake of construction of this creation, the word came out from the Lord, who was in form of spirit. Genesis 1:3, then God said. “Let there be light, there was light. “Let there be light”, told by the Lord God. This word came out from the Lord. John 1:1-5, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God: He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.  In him was life, and the life was the light of men.”
                Thereafter, according to the words came out from the Spirit of God, the Word the Lord Christ, who was in the form of word made everything on the earth. Each and every time the Holy Spirit sanctified the creation, which was created by Word, made it as good. Thereafter, it is written that the Spirit of God saw and it was good.
                Before the construction of this earth, the Lord God was in the form of trinity. These three were in the form of Spirits.
                During the construction of creation, they were in the form of Spirit, Word and Holy Spirit. So, I John 5:7, “For there are three who bear witness in heaven the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one”.
                Genesis 1:26, “Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness”. “OUR”, is plural form, but not singular.
                Here it is proved that there are three members. Let us know how these three are one.
                In Genesis 18th and 9th chapter, the Lord appeared to Abraham as the three people. But, Abraham had the motive that the Lord God is one, said with these three persons, “My Lord”, but not said, “My Lords.” We also have the motive that the Lord is one.  So, so many sentences proved in the Holy Bible that the Lord is one only.
                Luke 1:35 and the angel answered and said to her (Mary), “The  Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore also that Holy one who is to be born will be called the  Son of God”.
                In this way, Holy Spirit and the Power of the Highest, merged as One and formed the Son of God in the womb of Virgin Mary as the image of man.
                So, the Lord Jesus Christ said in John 10:30, “I and My Father are One”.
                John 17:11, “Holy Father, keep through your name those whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are.”
                John 17:21, “That they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me and  I in You”.
                When Philip the disciple of Christ asked him, Lord! Show the Father, and it is sufficient for us”. The Lord Christ said to him, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father”. Refer John 14:9.

                From this, we know that the Lord is one, but in triune form. These three have same power. So, there is no differentiation in them. Even though, these three appeared as the individual ones, but their powers are equal as the one.  So, the Lord is one for all.
