The Holy Trinity


TRINITARIAN THEOLOGY

INTRO:

The Holy Trinity. If we just accept God’s word as it is written we should not have any problem believing the Holy Trinity. God is alive and we know He is triune because He said He made us in His image and we are triune.

1Th 5:23  And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God [your whole spirit] and [soul] and [body] be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

We cannot take Our God and try to imagine everything of Him in our finite minds.

Isa 55:8  For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
Isa 55:9  For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

The Holy trinity is a stumbling block to almost every false religion there is and most every cult is recognized by leaving out one or more of the Holy Trinity. There are a lot of mysteries in the Bible but people just seem to be “mystified” by the Holy Trinity.

I.) PROOF TEXT:

a.) Mat 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the (name of) [the Father], (and of) [the Son], (and of) [the Holy Ghost]:

b.) Col 2:8  Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after [Christ].
Col 2:9  For [in him] (dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead {bodily}).

c.) 2Co 13:14  The [grace of the Lord Jesus Christ], and [the love of God], and [the communion of the Holy Ghost], (be with you all). Amen.

b.) Gen 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.
Gen 1:27  [So God created man in his own image], [in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them].

II.) THE GODHEAD:

a.) The Bible does not teach that there are three “separate” Gods!

b.) For Instance: Water, H2O.

1.)We can have water as a “liquid”.
2.) Water as a solid “ice”.
3.) Water as a vapor “steam”.

If a mere created element of God can have three separate forms, WHY IS IT SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND GOD IS ONE GOD IN THREE SEPARATE FORMS. IT’S NOT THAT HARD. SOME PEOPLE JUST REFUSE TO BELIEVE.

1.) THE FATHER:

a.) Mat 6:9  After this manner therefore pray ye: [Our Father] which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

b.) ELOHIM – Mighty God.

Psa 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

c.) ADONAI – Lord – Great Ruler.

Mal 1:6  A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: [if then I be a father, where is mine honour]? and [if I be a master, where is my fear]? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?

d.) JIREH – Redeemer

Isa 63:16  [Doubtless thou art our father], though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: [thou, O LORD, art our father], [our redeemer]; thy name is from everlasting.

e.) ROPHI – Healer

Jer 17:14  Heal me, O LORD, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved: for thou art my praise.

f.) SHALOM – Peace

Jdg 6:22  And when Gideon perceived that he was an angel of the LORD, Gideon said, Alas, [O Lord GOD]! for because I have seen an angel of the LORD face to face.
Jdg 6:23  And [the LORD said unto him, Peace be unto thee]; fear not: thou shalt not die.
Jdg 6:24  Then Gideon built an altar there unto the LORD, and called it [Jehovahshalom]: unto this day it is yet in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

2.) THE SON

a.) Mat 1:23  Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name [Emmanuel], which being interpreted is, [God with us].

(Note: God in Man)

b.) Joh 10:30  [I and my Father are one].

c.) Joh 20:28  And Thomas answered and said unto him, [My Lord and my God].

d.) Mar 2:5  When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, [thy sins be forgiven thee].
Mar 2:6  But there were certain of the scribes sitting there, and reasoning in their hearts,
Mar 2:7  Why doth this man thus speak blasphemies? [who can forgive sins but God only]?

3.) THE HOLY GHOST

a.) Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the [Spirit of God] moved upon the face of the waters.

b.) 2Co 13:14  The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and [the communion of the Holy Ghost], be with you all. Amen.

c.) Joh 14:26  [But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost], whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

d.) THERE ARE 73 REFERENCES TO THE HOLY GHOST IN THE KING JAMES BIBLE.

INCLUDING 17 REFERENCES TO THE HOLY SPIRIT, THAT WILL MAKE 90 TIMES REFERENCING THE SPIRIT OF GOD.

III.) THE UNITY OF THE TRINITY

a.) IN CREATION:

The Father spake and the Spirit moved:

Gen 1:1  [In the beginning God] created the heaven and the earth.
Gen 1:2  And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And [the Spirit of God moved] upon the face of the waters.

Joh 1:1  [In the beginning was the Word], and [the Word was with God], and [the Word was God].

Joh 1:14  And [the Word was made flesh], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

GOD IN MAN!

b.) THE INCARNATION:

Joh 3:16  [For God] so loved the world, that [he gave his only begotten Son], that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Luk 1:34  Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
Luk 1:35  And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

Mat 1:20  But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.
Mat 1:21  And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

c.) SALVATION:

1.) The Holy Spirit convicts the sinner.
2.) The Son of God paid the price.
3.) God received the sinner into His family.

d.) INTERCESSION:

Joh 14:13  And [whatsoever ye shall ask in my name], [that will I do], [that the Father] may be glorified in the Son.

GOD LISTENS

THE SON INTERCEDES IN HEAVEN

Rom 8:34  Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, [who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us].

Heb 7:25  Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, [seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them].

THE SPIRIT INTERCEDES FROM WITHIN US HERE ON EARTH

Rom 8:26  Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: [but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered].
Rom 8:27  And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, [because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God].

AT THE NAME OF JESUS, THE SPIRIT DIRECTS AND GOD PROVIDES.

GOD IS GOOD – “ALL THE TIME”!

AMEN.
