To know God, we must know Jesus. He is the Son of God, our Savior, Redeemer, and Healer, the Light of the World, the Living Word of God, the Teacher, Rabbi, and Priest. The King of Kings and Lord of Lords, the Lord Most High, the Prince of Peace, and the Lamb of God.
He is the great I AM.
These Names discribe who Jesus is, and what He has done for us. (He is everything we need, and all I desire.) yet, there is more.
Jesus is the Word of God, and the Creator, (John 1:1-3), the Alpha and Omaga, the first and the last, the Auther and Finisher of our Faith. (Revelation 1:8, Hebrews 12:2). He is the image of the invisible God, (2 Corinthians 4:4, Colossians 1:15).
The Lord is the Administrator, God is the Operator, the Spirit Manifests the Power. (1 Corinthians 12:4-7)
Was Jesus, in the Old Testament? Is the Lord God one member of the Trinity or two? Does it matter? Very often from the Garden on, the Lord God, speaks with one voice. (Genesis 3 and beyond)
Why do some of the writings of Moses imply that the Lord and God, speak with two voices?
One saw, the other spoke. (Exodus 3:4), One gives the Spirit of the other. (Exodus 31:1-5, 35:30-33), One gave Eve Cain and Able, (Genesis 4:1-2), the other gave her Seth and Enos, (Genesis 4:25-26).
In the same chapter we find Cain leaving the presence of the Lord, and after the birth of Enos, people began to call apon the Lord. Why not the Lord God?
Could it be that we can reject the Law? Yet Grace is still available, if we seek it, and not reject the Holy Spirit?
Isn’t the rejection of the Holy Spirit, the only unforgivable sin? (Mathew 12:31-32; Mark 3:28-30)
In the book of Job, we find the Lord declaring, Job fears God and hates evil. (Job 1:1) Why not fears Me? Or Loves Me?
In Genesis 6, we see Noah finds Grace in the Sight of the Lord, because he Walks with God. the Lord is going to destroy man and all fleah, God is also, yet God gave Noah a way to escape. (build an Ark)
Is it possible that the Lord is the Law Giver, and God is Grace? We are saved because we accept God’s Grace, (Jesus, as Lord and Savior) , that is the only way to be accepted by the Father. (The Law Giver)
Remember the Old and New Testament were written in different languages. That can change the meaning of some words.
Just an interesting study. I ask you to comment, Please.

To know Jesus, is to know the Father and the Holy Spirit, they are One.
