Did One God Become Three People?

what is the trinityI have a theory. I think that in the beginning, beginning, God was one, as in no Son, no Holy Spirit.
He was alone and He had this dream of creating a kingdom where we would live with Him in love and joy forever. He knew from that first thought that we would need help to do that, so He split Himself into three people. He’s God, He can do anything.

First, He spoke to those He called as prophets to hear His voice and set guidelines for how we should live. Then He sent His Son to model how we should live and make a way for us to live in His kingdom forever. Then He sent His Holy Spirit to give us the power and authority to live as the Son lived.

Paul says of Jesus, He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. (Col 1:15)

Not that anyone has seen the Father, except He who is from God. He has seen the Father. (Jhn 6:46)

Jesus said to him, Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Phillip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father. (Jhn 14:9)

I like the idea that God fell in love with us while we were still a dream. And to make that dream happen, He changed His very nature for us. His plan of salvation goes back before the foundations of the earth. It’s the love story that keeps getting better and better.

What do you think?

    There is no reason for God for Him splitting in two or three other persons, and certainly not for faking a death. God can not be tempted and can not die, but Jesus was tempted more than once and really died. Those who see God die, but many people could see Jesus and did not die. In case Jesus was God that would make a liar of Jehovah God, because He told that nobody could see him and live and He said about the Jewish man in the river Jordan at his baptism by John the Baptist “See here my beloved son.”
    Jesus also never claimed to be God and knew very well he could do nothing without his Father, who is much mightier than Jesus.

    Jesus, the Son of God, came to earth as the Son of Man. As the Son of Man, we could look on Him an not die. He said Himself, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father” John 14:9. He made Himself as one of us to show us how we could live through Him, that’s why He only did what the Father showed Him. It was a model for us to follow.

    “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” John 1:1. “For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one” 1John 5:7. Jesus is the Word and He is God. “For in Him swells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily” Gal 2:9.

    The foundation of the Trinity is that God is three people, the three people are all God, together. God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are all God.

    I hope that helps.
