Bible Doctrine Drill – Lesson 3 – God

God has always been. Nobody made God. He was never born, He never had a beginning, and He will never die. There is just one God, but the one God is in three Persons. This is called the Trinity.

The three Persons of God are God the Father, God the Word, and God the Holy Spirit.

God the Word left Heaven and came to live on earth in a human body to take away the sins of God’s chosen people. His name was called Jesus. When He went back to Heaven, Jesus sent God the Holy Spirit to live with God’s people and to guide them.

Drill Questions:

1. Who made God? Nobody. (Genesis 1:1; 1 Timothy 1:17; Revelation 1:8; Psalm 90:2; John 1:3)

2. Was He ever born? No. (Revelation 1:8)

3. Has He ever had a beginning? No. He has always been. (Exodus 3:14)

4. Will God ever die? No. He lives forever. (1 Timothy 1:17, 1 Timothy 6:16)
