THE TRINITY

THE   TRINITY
*
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
*
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
*
{Why would God use the plural word “us” if there were not others in the eternal Godhead?}
*
**************
*
Isaiah 48:16 Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord GOD, and his Spirit, hath sent me.
*
{ Here the Lord mentions Himself by saying “I”

(1)  and then He says that the Lord God

(2)  and His Spirit

(3)  hath sent “me”, same as “I” (1) }

**************

Matthew 3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:

Matthew 3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

{There are clearly three distinct persons spoken of here.}

**************

John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

John 5:31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

John 5:32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.

{Here Jesus clearly testifies that He did not come to do His own will but the will of the Father.}

**************

John 8:15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

John 8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me.

John 8:17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true.

John 8:18 I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.

{Here Jesus uses the law, which declares the need for two witnesses in the matter of justice, and then follows up by saying that He has another witness who happens to be the Father.}

**************

Hebrews 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.

Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

{Here the Father declares the Son to be God also.}

**************

Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.
Revelation 5:7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.

Revelation 5:8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints.

Revelation 5:9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;

{This is one of the clearest verses in that it shows us that the Lamb, who is Jesus, was STANDING while the One on the throne was SITTING down. How can anyone dispute the fact that they are are TWO distinct persons?}

    Thank you for the added Scripture Adam. I’ve been wanting to add a post on the Trinity because questions come up from time to time and it’s good to have something ready.

  2. Good study. Similar to Hebrews 1:8-9 is Titus 2:13, where Jesus is also referred to as “our great God”:

    Titus 2:11-14 (English Standard Version)

    11For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people, training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age, 13 waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.
