The structure of the universe witnesses to the divine
nature of God: His being a Trinity.
The universe is a remarkable
tri-universe, a "continuum" of space and mass-energy and
The Father is the invisible,
omnipresent source of all being, manifest and declared by the eternal word, the
Son, who is, in turn, experienced in the Spirit.
Space is infinite and time is
endless, and everywhere throughout space and time events happen, processes
function, phenomena exist. The tri-universe is remarkably analogous to the
nature of its Creator.
Furthermore, each of the three
entities is also itself a trinity. That is, for example, space is comprised of
three dimensions, each of which occupies all space. The first dimension is the
basic dimension by which space is identified (e.g., the linear dimension); it
can only be "seen," however, in two dimensions and
"experienced" in three dimensions.
Time also is a trinity: past,
present and future.
of the Trinity
The visible manifestation of God is Jesus Christ.
Whenever and wherever God has been made visible or in any way manifested locally
and temporally in His creation, it is the second person, the Word of God, who
has so appeared; finally as Man Himself.
1A. In His humanity, He is finite and temporal,
confined to a given space at a given time. In His deity, on the other hand, he
is infinite and eternal without "beginning of days, nor end of life"
(Heb 7:3, the one "that fills all in all" (Eph 1:23).
