God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one –

 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 NLT

If the Good News we preach is hidden behind a veil, it is hidden only from people who are perishing. Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.

Each Disciple has three great enemies: the world, their own flesh and Satan. Paul said Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe and are perishing. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Jesus, who is the exact likeness of God.

God the Father, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are one. “There is one and only one living and true God. …The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.” [A] Jesus said I and the Father are one, [B] and He who sees Me sees the One who sent Me. [C]

Warren Wiersbe said “the world is opposed by God the Father, the flesh is opposed by God the Holy Spirit and Satan is opposed by God the Son-Jesus.” [D]

Jesus was victorious on the cross over death. [E] In the future Jesus is coming the 2nd time with His saints in great victory; [F]

What a great day that will be when Jesus and all the saints, children of God, come back to earth in great victory!
