The One and Only Deity

I wrote a poem post for the blog recently; and before I send any of them out,
I try to make certain, for the readers, that there haven’t been any mistakes made throughout.

So, I must have ignored the “spell check,” for I did have an obvious spelling error.
The dictionary confirmed it, after the fact, and became my day’s bad news bearer.

I’d misspelled “deities,” probably because I usually think only of the One.
I don’t use the word, deities, very much at all, since there’s just One in Jesus,
God’s Son.

P. A. Oltrogge

“Then one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, perceiving that He had answered them well, asked Him, ‘Which is the first commandment of all?’ Jesus answered him, ‘The first of all the commandments is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment.'” Mark 12:28-30 NKJV

“Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6

“Jesus said to him, ‘Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” John 14:9

“For there are three that bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one.” 1 John 5:7 NKJV

“What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we beheld and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life–and the life was manifested, and we have seen and bear witness and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us–what we have seen and heard we proclaim to you also, that you also may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son, Jesus Christ. And these things we write, so that our joy may be made complete.” 1 John 1:1-4

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:1-5 NKJV
