First of all.......we need to look at these scripture texts which result from performing a search for the phrases, "one God" or "one Lord" in the King James Holy Bible:

Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?
Mal 2:10 (KJV)

And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he:
Mark 12:32 (KJV)

Seeing it is one God, which shall justify the circumcision by faith, and uncircumcision through faith.
Romans 3:30 (KJV)

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.
1 Cor 8:6 (KJV)

One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
Eph 4:6 (KJV)

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;
1 Tim 2:5 (KJV)

"the man Christ Jesus" in the scripture above is the "flesh and blood" aspect of the one God with which we are made an image of.  As explained below, Jesus is God in the flesh, or all the fullness of God in the flesh, our mediator because He is the "flesh and blood" aspect of our one God, one Lord.

Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:
Deut 6:4 (KJV)

And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
Zech 14:9 (KJV)

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
Mark 12:29 (KJV)

One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
Eph 4:5 (KJV)

It is obvious that scripture teaches there is but ONE GOD or ONE LORD, amen?  Other scripture texts read, "one God, the Father, and one Lord, Jesus Christ" and suggests two persons or two separate Gods but this is only to remind us that there is a God-head, or in our limited comprehension, our Father as the pure light of being, and master of all aspects of God.  Also, keeping in mind the oneness or wholeness of our one God, the verses that suggest two Gods, or beings, or persons are only using these words interchangeably to distinguish God in the flesh (Jesus) from the head of the "body and spirit" aspect of God, our Father in Heaven, all being the same God, only different aspects of the same God.

Putting the Trinity doctrine aside for a moment, let's look at the three (3) God idea briefly.  Nowhere in scripture do you see God numbered……for example…#1 God, #2 God, #3 God. The Bible always refers to ONE God even when it speaks of all three entities so to speak, or if you will, three (3) aspects of the same God, God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit, not........"the first God, the Father, second God the Son, third God the Holy Spirit.

Concerning the Trinity doctrine, taught as there being three persons, etc.,  I came across Col. 2:9 some time ago which is with other verses below and inspired me to think about our Lord God and the so-called Trinity and to study further:

He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.
Psalms 89:26 (KJV)

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

Well, you may say, "isn't Jesus the Rock?", or "I thought Jesus and the Father were separate."  Are the verses above saying that the Son of God is also the Father in Heaven?  Here is another verse below that proves that Jesus is the Rock:

And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
1 Cor 10:4 (KJV)

The verses below may clarify things a little better:

For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Col
2:9 (KJV)

Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
John 14:9 (KJV)

Jesus is all the fullness of God the Father in the flesh……..He IS God in the flesh………the only physical aspect of God we will ever see with our own eyes and be able to fellowship with, talk to, touch, and walk with when we get to Heaven and on the new Earth.

The Holy Spirit is spirit, not flesh and blood and therefore does not really constitute a flesh and blood “person”, although He (Holy Spirit) can be considered an entity or aspect of the one person, God, all the fullness of God in the spirit, with a mind of His own in that He is that part of the one God or one person that is spirit and can be all places at all times, indwelling those who believe and choose to follow God.  He is the power, knowledge and wisdom of God within us, and being God in the spirit, or the spiritual aspect of God, guides us to better understanding of His Word day by day, minute by minute.

If Jesus is God in the flesh, then God the Father cannot really be seen physically, or cannot be given a physical attribute except that part that can be seen in flesh and blood Jesus, of which we are made in His image.  If there is some sort of hierarchy in these three aspects of God (one person, one personality, one being)……..I like to start and finish prayers like this:

“Our Father in Heaven, ………through Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour by the Holy Spirit I pray, Amen.”

After letting everything sink in…….it is easiest and best to try and just look at God (one God) as having three (3) aspects. Three aspects of the same God……..Father (pure light of being), Son (God in the flesh or all the fullness of God in the flesh, also called the Son of God or the Word of God), and of course, the Holy Spirit (God within us, or all the fullness of God in the Spirit dwelling within us).  Same God manifest in three (3) aspects …….. one God, one person, but three (3) aspects of the same.  One personality or person or being (God), three (3) aspects, but all three having the same fullness of the ONE  GOD.  Not three separate persons or three different Gods, but only ONE God, but each aspect, or part, having the fullness of the same God, all connected, all intertwined, three parts of the same being or intellect, God.

If we look at ourselves, an image of God, we are made up of different aspects also.  We have a physical form (the dust of the Earth) and the breath of life the Lord gives us which brought together make up our soul, or being, our basic make-up.  We also have a spiritual aspect which hopefully we align with the Holy Spirit indwelling within when we choose to accept and follow Him as we grow in His Word.  Jesus, as an example, and as He said, to fulfill all righteousness, was baptized by John and also received the indwelling of the Holy Spirit right after John baptized Him………

21 Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened,
22 And the
Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
Luke 3:21-22 (KJV)

14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?
15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to
fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.
16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the
Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
Matt 3:14-16 (KJV)

Didn't Jesus say, "Let us make man in our image"?  Does this all make more sense now?  When we look at ourselves, the image of God, we can more readily comprehend God's make-up and understand His Word.  I'm not trying to bring God down to our level, God forbid, because God is infinitely beyond our complete understanding, but being made in His image, we can understand better the fact that we are His children and that He loves us so much that He gave us free will and the facilities to use it.  Adam and Eve chose to ignore His warnings and lost continuous communion with Him, but He has given us a way back into His grace by sacrificing a part of Himself, the Son (physical aspect), raising Him back to life as He does for us, showing us the way back home into His bosom through Jesus Christ, who is also all the fullness of the Father (God) in the flesh.
