What is meant by the word “Godhead” (used in the Bible three times: Acts 17:29, Rom 1:20, Col 2:9)? The state of being God, divinity. From Colossians 2:9 we see that center of the power of God is located in Jesus Christ.
Col 2:9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily. KJV
Col 2:9 For in Christ there is all of God in a human body; TLB
This is an easy way to understand the Godhead: God’s spirit that dwells everywhere in the universe at the same time has His power centrally located and administered in and through Jesus Christ. He can be God in heaven and God on earth at the same time. He can listen to every person praying or worshipping anywhere on earth at the same time.
A good example of this picture is seen in the baptism of Jesus. God’s voice was heard from heaven while Jesus was being baptized and the Spirit of God was descending like a dove. (Matt 3:16-17) God was operating in three places at the same time. Although Jesus was God in the water being baptized, He had not ceased to exist as God that always inhabited the entire universe as an invisible spirit.
For humans to look at that picture and to say that God must be three distinct persons or three separate personalities in order to have three simultaneous appearances puts severe restrictions on how we define God and limits His existence to weak human terms of understanding. For instance, God can show up in 100,000 places at the same time in whatever manner He chooses. Does that mean that for God to accomplish that, that He must exist in 100,000 distinct persons? No.
When reading Bible verses that present different manifestations of God, whether visual or audio, we must keep in mind the verse in the Bible that Jesus considered the most important scripture:
Mark 12:29 And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord:
