“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” – Genesis 1:1
The Holy Bible is the only book that can be said to be inspired by God (2 Timothy 3:16). It is important to note that the Bible does not really make an attempt to prove the existence of God — it is rather a divine revelation of who God is and how He is to be known and worshiped.
In Adam Clarke’s commentary of the Bible, Genesis 1:1, he states that the word “God” is actually in the plural form in the original language of the Bible, and that the most godly biblical scholars of the first rank have believed that this points to more than one Person in God. There are also many other portions of Scripture in the Old Testament that seem to reveal the common belief of many — that there are three Persons in GOD, yet there is only one God.
Part of Genesis 1:2 says that “the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters;” and Genesis 1:26a-27 says: “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. . . . So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” Notice that God says “let us make man in our image, after our likeness.”
The Bible plainly declares that there is only one God (Isaiah 45:18, 22), and in the very first chapter of the very first book of the Bible we see God as the all-powerful Creator of the universe and everything that pertains to it.
