89 Proofs of a Divine Trinity #BOOM Finis Dake- Dake’s Annotated Reference Bible.

What we mean by Divine Trinity is that there are three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead, each one having His own personal spirit body, personal soul, and personal spirit in the same sense each human being, angel, or any other being has his own body, soul, and spirit. We mean by body, whether a spirit body or a flesh body, the house for the indwelling of the personal soul and spirit. The soul is that which feels and the spirit is that which knows.

The doctrine of the Trinity can be clearly seen, being understood by the visible things that are made, even to His eternal power and Godhead (Rom. 1:20). What on earth was created in the image and likeness of God? Man (Gen. 1:26-28). Do God’s image and likeness consist only of moral and spiritual powers? If so, it can be concluded that man is only a moral and spiritual being. Is God bodiless? If so, we can conclude that man is also bodiless.

Is God only one being made up of several persons or beings in the one being? If so, we can conclude that man is one person or being made up of many. Does God need a flesh body in order to have any kind of body? No! There are such things as spirit and heavenly bodies. See 1Cor. 15:35-38. From this passage we learn that all things in creation — grain, fish, birds, beasts, man, angels, and even the planets — have bodies, sizes, shapes, and forms.

The Bible declares that God has a body, shape, image, likeness, physical parts, a personal soul and spirit, and all other things that constitute a being or a person with a body, soul, and spirit (see note, Jn. 4:24; note, Jn. 5:37; The Doctrine of Man.

Angels, cherubim, seraphim, and all other spirit beings have spirit bodies and personal souls and spirits. They have been seen with the natural eyes of men over 100 times in Scripture (see Appearances of Angels to Men). If all other spirit beings have spirit bodies, could not the members of the Trinity also have spirit bodies? The 284 passages on spirits in Scripture prove that spirit bodies are just as real and capable of operation in the material worlds as are flesh bodies. There is no such thing as a world of creations made up of invisible substance. The so-called spirit world must be understood simply as spirit beings inhabiting material worlds created by God. Heaven itself is a material place(Gen. 1:1; Heb. 11:10-16), having cities, mansions, furniture, inhabitants, living conditions, etc.

God has been seen physically by human eyes many times (Gen. 18:1-33; 19:24; 32:24-30; Ex. 24:11; 33:11-23; Josh. 5:13-15; Judg. 6:11-23; 13:3-25; 1Chr. 21:16-17; Job 42:5; Isa. 6; Ezek. 1:26-28; 10:1,20; 40:3; Dan. 7:9-14; 10:5-10; Acts 7:56-59; Rev. 4:2-5; 5:1,5-7,11-14; 6:16; 7:9-17; 19:4; 21:3-5; 22:4).

In over 20,000 references about God in Scripture we get to know all we need to know about the subject. If we will take the Bible literally as to what it says about Him, as we do with other things the subject will be very clear; but if we make God a mystery, ignoring the plain statements of Scripture about Him, and refusing to believe the many descriptions of God given by those who have seen one, two, and three separate persons called “God,” then we ill remain in ignorance.

It is true there are a few figurative statements about God in Scripture, as there are about man and other things, but shall we do away with the reality of man and these other things because of a few figures of speech? Let us make man mere salt and lights (Mt. 5:13-14), if we are going to do away with God because of a few figures of speech.

We submit the following facts in Scripture to prove a Divine Trinity of separate persons in the Godhead:

1. The word “one” means one in unity as well as one in number. It means unity in 1Jn. 5:7, as it does in Jn. 17:11,21-23, and yet these three Persons, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, are spoken of as one each in number and individuality in Scripture. There is one God the Father, one Lord Jesus Christ, and one Holy Spirit (1Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:3-6). Thus, there are three separate Persons in divine individuality and divine pluralty. The Father is called God (1Cor. 8:6), the Son is called God (Isa. 9:6,7; Heb. 1:8; Jn. 1:1-2; 20:28), and the Holy Spirit is called God (Acts 5:3-4). As individual persons each can be called God and collectively they can be spoken of as one God because of their perfect unity. The word “God” is used either as a singular or a plural word, like sheep. Everything that could be spoken of God collectively applies equally to each member of the Godhead as an individual, but there are some things that are said of each person of the Deity as to position, office, and work that could not be spoken as of the other members of the Godhead. The Father is the head of Christ (1Cor. 11:3); the Son is the only begotten of the Father (2Jn. 1:3), and the Holy Spirit proceeds from both the Father and the Son (Jn. 14:16,26; 15:26; 16:7-15; Acts 2:34).

2. Names of God prove plurality of persons.(Gen. 3:5; Ex. 22:28; 1Sam. 4:8; Dan. 2:11; 4:6-9; 5:11,14; etc.).

3. Plural pronouns are used of God, proving plurality of persons (Gen. 1:26; 3:22; 11:7; Isa. 6:8; Jn. 14:23; 17:11,22-23).

4. First, second, and third personal pronouns are used hundreds of times in Scripture, referring to one, two, and three persons of the Godhead in the same sense they are used of men. Sometimes the different members of the Deity use them to and of one another in the same sense man uses them. In Jn. 17 alone Jesus uses them 162 Times in speaking to and of His Father (cp. Jn. 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15). Sometimes singular pronouns are used of the whole Godhead of three members as a unity (Ex. 20:3; Isa. 44:6,8; 45:5,21; 46:9; Hos. 13:4), just like the whole church as a unit is spoken of as a man and “he” (Eph. 2:14-15; 4:13; 5:25-27; 2Th. 2:7-8).

5. “Man is become as one of us” proves plurality of persons (Gen. 3:22).

6. Two and three Persons called God have been seen by the same men at the same time and places as being separate persons (Dan. 7:9-14; Mt. 3:16-17; Jn. 1:31-34; Acts 7:54-60; Rev. 6:16; 7:9-17; 21:22; 22:3).

7. Two Lords are mentioned in Gen. 19:24; one on earth and one in heaven.

8. Two Persons are referred to in the Old Testament See Ps. 8:5-6 with Heb. 2:5-18; Ps. 16:8-10 with Acts 2:25-36; Ps. 22:1-22 with Mt. 27:35,39-43,45-46; Heb. 9:14; 10:5-12; Ps. 40:6-10 with Heb. 10:5-7; and Ps. 45:6-7 with Heb. 1:8-9.

9. Two Lords are mentioned sitting side by side (Ps. 110:1,5; Mt. 22:44; 26:64; Acts 2:33-34; 7:54-56; Rom. 8:34; Eph. 1:20; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3,13; 8:1; 10:12; 12:2; 1Pet. 3:22; Rev. 22:3).

10. Two Persons are mentioned and required in order to understand the plain language of Ps. 2; 9:19; 132:17; Prov. 30:4; Isa. 4:2; 10:16-17; 28:16; 49:1-10; 50:4-11; 52:13 – Isa. 53:12; 62:11; Mic. 5:1-5; Jer. 23:4-8; 33:14-26; Zech. 3:8-10; 6:12-13. In these passages one is anointed, becomes the son of, is sent by, is taught by, and becomes the servant of the other; and both are called Lord.

11. Three self-acting Persons — the Lord God, the Messiah, and the Holy Spirit — are referred to as blessing, anointing, sending, and doing things for one another in Isa. 11:2; 42:1-7; 48:16; 59:21; 61:1-2; 63:1-14; Zech. 12:10 — Zech. 13:2.

12. In Zech. 1:7-21 the Lord of Hosts and the angel of the Lord (also called Lord, Zech. 1:19-20; 2:1-13) are talking together. One Lord says of the other Lord that He has sent Him to Israel (Zech. 2:8-13). One Lord refers to Himself as “Me” and to the Lord of Hosts as “His” and “He” (Zech. 2:8-11). The conference continues throughout Zechariah until Zech. 13:6-7 where both Lords are called fellows or associate.

13. Jesus Christ is called the son of Abraham, David, Mary, and of God (Mt. 1:1; Mk. 1:1; 6:3). He is just as much a separate person from God as He is of these other persons.

14. Two Persons are referred to many times in the New Testament (Mt. 11:27; Lk. 23:46; Jn. 1:1-2,18; 5:19-20; 14:1-9; 16:15; 17:3,10; Acts 2:38-39; 3:13-26; Php. 2:5-11; Eph. 3:5; Col. 1:5; 2Th. 2:16-17; Tit. 2:13; Heb. 1:1-3; Rev. 20:6; 22:3).

15. Two and three Persons are mentioned in the introductions to New Testament books (Rom. 1:1-4,7; 1Cor. 1:3; Jas. 1:1; 1Pet. 1:1-3; 2Jn. 1:3; Rev. 1:1-6; etc.).

16. God is the head of Christ and thus greater than He in position (1Cor. 3:23; 11:3; 1Chr. 29:11; Jn. 14:28).

17. Christ is the mediator between God and man, not between Himself and man (1Tim. 2:5).

18. Two and three Persons are referred to in every New Testament book (Mt. 3:16-17; 12:31-32; 17:5; 22:43-45; 28:19; Mk. 1:1-2,10; 13:32; Lk. 1:32-35; 2:40,52; 3:22; 4:1; 4:18; 9:35; 23:46; 24:39 with Jn. 4:24; Jn. 1:1-3,14,18; 5:17-25,31-38; 6:37,44-46,57; 7:16-18,28,37-39; 8:13-19,26-38,42,54; 10:15-18,24,29,36; 12:26-31,44,49-50; 14:1-26,28-30; 15:1-26; 16:1-33; 17:1-26; 18:11; 20:17,21; 18:11; 20:17,21; Acts 1:7-8; 2:24-36; 3:13-26; 4:10,26-31; 5:29-33; 7:37,55-56; 8:12-17; 9:17; 10:38-48; 17:31; Rom. 1:3,7,9; 5:1-11; 8:1-13,26-39; 1Cor. 1:3-9; 2:10; 3:23; 8:6; 11:3; 12:3; 15:57; 2Cor. 1:2-3; 5:17-21; 13:14; Gal. 1:1-3; Eph. 1:2-3; 3:14; 4:3-6; 6:23; Php. 1:2; 2:5-11; Col. 1:2-3,13-19; 3:1; 1Th. 1:1-10; 3:13; 2Th. 1:1-2; 2:16; 1Tim. 1:2; 2:5; 5:21; 6:14-16; 2Tim. 1:2; 4:1; Tit. 1:4; 2:13; Phm. 1:3; see note, Rev. 5:13 for 30 last New Testament references). In no conceivable way can we force a meaning of three persons in one person; three beings in one being; or three manifestations of only one person in any of these or any other scripture.

19. There are three distinct and separate witnesses that bear witness of Christ (1Jn. 5:5-11,13,20). Both God and man require this many personal and separate witnesses to confirm any point (Mt. 18:16; 2Cor. 13:1). The water and blood of 1Jn. 5:8 could not be accepted as accredited personal witnesses to confirm any point (Mt. 18:16; 2Cor. 13:1). The water and blood of 1Jn. 5:8 could not be accepted as accredited personal witness in themselves. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are the only persnal witnesses of this passage. If we consider these to be only one person, then there are not the required number of witnesses to establish the truth of the Sonship of Jesus Christ. We are forced by facts to admit all of 1Jn. 5:7-8 as inspired Scripture and therefore, the fact that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are three separate and personal witnesses instead of being only one person or witness. Indeed, many scriptures confirm these three witnesses:

(1) The Father (Jer. 29:23; Mal. 3:5; Jn. 5:31-37, notes; Rom. 1:9; Heb. 1:1-2; 2:3-4)

(2) The Son (Isa. 55:4; Jn. 18:37; 1Tim. 6:13; Rev. 1:5)

(3) The Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:16; Jn. 15:26; Heb. 10:15; 1Jn. 3:6) If all three are witnesses, then they must be separate Persons. The water and the blood simply confirm the intelligent testimonies of the three Persons of the Godhead and give additional weight to the Sonship of Jesus.

20. The words through and by, used of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, but not once of the Father, prove that God to be a separate Person and the Head and Director of all things done by and through them (1Cor. 3:23; 11:3; Jn. 10:29; 14:28; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15; Acts 2:33-34):

(1) Through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:2; Rom. 1:8; 5:1,9,11; 6:23; 7:25; 15:17; 16:27; 1Cor. 15:57; 2Cor. 3:4; Gal. 3:14; 4:7; 5:10; Eph. 2:7,18; Php. 4:7,13; Tit. 3:6; Heb. 13:21; 1Pet. 1:22; 4:11; 1Jn. 4:9)

(2) By Jesus Christ (Jn. 1:3,10,17; 10:9; Acts 4:10; 10:36; Rom. 2:16; 3:22; 5:17,21; Gal. 1:1; Eph. 1:5; 3:9; Col. 1:15-20; 3:17; Heb. 1:1-3; 1Pet. 2:5; 5:10)

(3) Through the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:2; 21:4; Rom. 8:13; 15:13,19; Gal. 5:5; Eph. 2:22; Heb. 9:14)

(4) By the Holy Spirit (Ezek. 11:24; Mic. 3:8; Zech. 4:6; Mt. 12:28; Lk. 2:27; 4:1; Acts 11:28; Rom. 5:5; 15:19; 1Cor. 2:10; 6:11; 12:3,13)

Proofs that Jesus Is Not the Father:

21. The Father was in heaven all the time that Jesus was on earth (Mt. 5:16,48).

22. Christ now sits at the right hand of the Father (see note 9, above).

23. Jesus said He would confess men “before My Father,” proving He is not the Father (Mt. 10:32; Rev. 3:5).

24. Jesus always prayed to the Father as a separate Person (Mt. 11:25; Jn. 17).

25. The Father existed outside the body of Jesus, so He could not be Jesus (Mt. 2:12; 3:17; 17:5; Jn. 12:27-30).

26. Both Jesus and Satan refer to a God separate from Jesus (Mt. 4:6-10).

27. God was the Father of Jesus, not Jesus Himself (Eph. 1:3,17; 3:14).

28. In parables Jesus illustrates His relationship to the Father as that of separate persons (Mt. 21:33-46; Jn. 15:1-8).

29. People are taught to go directly to the Father and not to pray to Jesus (Jn. 14:12-15; 15:16; 16:23-26).

30. The Father knew things that Jesus did not know (Mk. 13:32; Acts 1:7).

31. Others saw Jesus as a separate Person from the Father (Dan. 7:9-14; Acts 7:56).

32. Jesus committed His own spirit to the Father, not to Himself (Lk. 23:46).

33. Jesus claimed that He came from God and was going back to God (Jn. 8:42; 16:5; 10:36; 17:8).

34. God is a Spirit, not flesh and blood like Jesus was (Jn. 4:24; 19:34; Mt. 16:17; Lk. 24:39).

35. People on earth with Jesus heard God speak as a separate person from heaven (Mt. 3:17; 17:5; 2Pet. 1:16-18).

36. Jesus claimed to be the Son of God, not the Father Himself (Jn. 5:17-35).

37. Jesus called the Father “My God,” even after the resurrection (Jn. 20:17; Rev. 3:12).

38. Jesus called God “My Father” 57 times (Jn. 15:1; Rev. 2:27). How could He be His own God and Father and beget Himself?

39. When Jesus was born on earth angels and people still recognized God in heaven (Lk. 2:7-16). Were they mistaken about God? Was the child all of God on earth and in heaven also?

40. Mary and Joseph acted with utmost ignorance if the baby Jesus was all of God, for they presented Him to the Lord Who was someone other than Jesus (Lk. 2:22).

41. Simeon had a revelation and guidance from the Holy Spirit that Jesus was not the only member of the Godhead (Lk. 2:26-33).

42. John the Baptist knew the Father, but he did not know the Son (Jn. 1:31-34).

43. The Son died, not the Father (1Cor. 15:3; 1Pet. 2:24).

44. Jesus was the only begotten Son of the Father, so could not be the Father or the begetter of Himself (Jn. 1:14).

45. Jesus claimed that He could not and did not do anything of Himself, but that the Father worked through Him (Jn. 5:19,30; 6:38; 8:28; 12:49-50).

46. He did not come to do His own will, but that of the Father who sent Him (Jn. 5:30; 6:38).

47. His doctrine was not His, but the Father’s (Jn. 7:16-17; 8:26).

48. He did not speak of Himself, but of the Father who had sent Him (Jn. 7:16-18; 8:26-40).

49. He did not please Himself, but the Father (Jn. 8:29).

50. He was a Son, not a Father over the house of God (Jn. 8:35-36; Heb. 3:6).

51. He had the same relation to His Father that men have with Satan (Jn. 8:16,35-44; 9:4).

52. He honored the Father as all people should (Jn. 8:49).

53. He did not seek His own glory, but that of the Father (Jn. 8:50-54; 17:4).

54. He knew the Father, but was not the Father (Jn. 8:55; 10:15).

55. He was loved by the Father as a separate person (Jn. 10:17-18).

56. He kept the Father’s commandments and they were not His own (Jn. 12:49-50; 15:10).

57. His disciples were given to Him by the Father (Jn. 10:29; 17:1-25).

58. He was equal with the Father in some things, but not in others (Mk. 13:32; Jn. 5:17-39; 8:13-19,29-42; 19:18-29; Acts 1:7; 1Cor. 11:3; Rev. 1:1).

59. He and the Father were in unity and in each other in the same sense believers are to be in unity and in God (Jn. 10:38; 14:10-11,23; 17:11,21-23).

60. He was the only way to the Father (Jn. 6:37; 14:6).

61. He said, I am not alone or the only witness of My sonship. The Father is another witness (Jn. 5:36-38; 8:13-19,54; 12:49-50; 14:10-11).

62. Over 80 times Jesus affirmed that He was not the Father and not the only person in the Godhead. Christ was the speaker, but not the one spoken of or to (Mt. 7:21; 11:27; 18:10,35; Lk. 2:49; Jn. 5:17-43; 8:19-49; 10:17-37; 14:7-28; 15:1-26; Rev. 1:1; etc.). Is it any wonder that the Godhead, the Trinity, and the unity of God are so mysterious when we force separate persons to become only one person, all because we do not want to recognize the true meaning of the word one as referring to unity rather than individuality in some scriptures? People would be just as great a mystery if we forced the meaning of all men to refer to one person.

63. He was not as great as His Father (Jn. 10:29; 14:28; cp. 1Cor. 11:3).

64. The Father (Mt. 3:17), Jesus (Jn. 10:36), angels (Lk. 1:32-35), demons (Mk. 3:11; 5:7), and apostles (Mt. 16:16; Jn. 1:14; Rom. 8:32; 2Jn. 1:3), all declare the sonship of Jesus, but not once do they declare a Christ-fatherhood.

65. The Father and the Son spoke to each other in audible voices at the same time and place, being heard by many witnesses (Mt. 3:16-17; 7:5; Jn. 12:27-30; 2Pet. 1:17). In no single instance could such speaking be explained as the voice of one individual or be used to prove one Person in the Deity.

66. The word “both” is used of the Father and the Son, proving two Persons (Jn. 15:24; 2Jn. 1:9).

67. The word “also” is used of the Father and the Son, proving two Persons (Jn. 5:19,27; 8:19; 13:32; 14:1).

68. The statement, “They have not known the Father nor Me,” proves two Persons (Jn. 16:3,5).

69. Christ received all power in heaven and in earth (Mt. 28:18). The Father had to be greater than Jesus to give Him that power (Jn. 14:28).

70. Jesus was resurrected and exalted by the Father, so He could not be the Father (Eph. 1:20-23; Php. 2:9-11; Heb. 12:2; 1Pet. 3:22)

71. God made Jesus both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:33-36).

72. Six times in Jn. 14:1-9 Jesus made it clear that He was not the Father.

Holy Spirit Is Not Jesus Or the Father:

73. The Holy Spirit is another Person, distinct from both the Father and the Son (Jn. 5:32; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15).

74. It was necessary that Jesus go away so that the Holy Spirit could come (Jn. 16:5-15).

75. He has been seen with the natural eyes as a separate Person from the Father and the Son (Mt. 3:16-17; Jn. 1:31-34; Rev. 4:5; 5:6).

76. He is symbolized as a separate Person with Christ, both of them before God who sits on a throne (Rev. 1:4-5; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6).

77. He could not be sent from God until Christ was glorified, but would then be sent from both the Father and the Son (Jn. 7:37-39; Acts 2:33-34).

78. He was sent from the Father to endow Jesus with power. This required three Persons: the One who sent Him, the One being sent, and the One who received Him (Acts 10:38; Isa. 11:2; 42:1-7; 61:1-2).

79. A clear distinction is made of the names of all three Persons (Mt. 28:19; 2Cor. 13:14; 1Jn. 5:7).

80. A clear distinction is made between the Son who prays, the Father to whom He prays, and the Holy Spirit for whom He prays (Jn. 14:16).

81. A clear distinction is made between the Son on the right hand of the Father, the Father on the left hand of the Son, and the Holy Spirit who is sent from the Father and the Son (Acts 2:33-36; 7:56; Jn. 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15).

82. The Son was already given (Jn. 3:16), when the Spirit was not yet given (Jn. 7:39).

83. The Son can be blasphemed with forgiveness possible; but if the Spirit is blasphemed, no forgiveness is possible. This proves two distinct Persons (Mt. 12:31-32; Mk. 3:29-30; Lk. 12:10).

84. The Samaritans received Jesus, but had not yet received the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:5-25).

85. Jesus could do no miracle by Himself (Jn. 5:19), but by the Holy Spirit He did many miracles (Jn. 2:11; Acts 10:38)

86. The Holy Spirit came not to speak of or glorify Himself, but to speak of and glorify Jesus (Jn. 16:7-15).

87. The descent of the Holy Spirit proved the arrival of Jesus in heaven to sit at the right hand of God, thus proving three Persons (Acts 2:33-34; Jn. 7:39).

88. Jesus claimed even after the resurrection that He was not a spirit being, so He could not be the Father or the Holy Spirit who are spirit beings (Lk. 24:39; Jn. 4:24; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15).

89. In the last book of the Bible the Trinity is seen as working together in all things (Rev. 1:4-6; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6; 21:10; 22:17).

"89

What we mean by Divine Trinity is that there are three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead, each one having His own personal spirit body, personal soul, and personal spirit in the same sense each human being, angel, or any other being has his own body, soul, and spirit. We mean by body, whether a spirit body or a flesh body, the house for the indwelling of the personal soul and spirit. The soul is that which feels and the spirit is that which knows.

The doctrine of the Trinity can be clearly seen, being understood by the visible things that are made, even to His eternal power and Godhead (Rom. 1:20). What on earth was created in the image and likeness of God? Man (Gen. 1:26-28). Do God’s image and likeness consist only of moral and spiritual powers? If so, it can be concluded that man is only a moral and spiritual being. Is God bodiless? If so, we can conclude that man is also bodiless.

Is God only one being made up of several persons or beings in the one being? If so, we can conclude that man is one person or being made up of many. Does God need a flesh body in order to have any kind of body? No! There are such things as spirit and heavenly bodies. See 1Cor. 15:35-38. From this passage we learn that all things in creation — grain, fish, birds, beasts, man, angels, and even the planets — have bodies, sizes, shapes, and forms.

The Bible declares that God has a body, shape, image, likeness, physical parts, a personal soul and spirit, and all other things that constitute a being or a person with a body, soul, and spirit (see note, Jn. 4:24; note, Jn. 5:37; The Doctrine of Man.

Angels, cherubim, seraphim, and all other spirit beings have spirit bodies and personal souls and spirits. They have been seen with the natural eyes of men over 100 times in Scripture (see Appearances of Angels to Men). If all other spirit beings have spirit bodies, could not the members of the Trinity also have spirit bodies? The 284 passages on spirits in Scripture prove that spirit bodies are just as real and capable of operation in the material worlds as are flesh bodies. There is no such thing as a world of creations made up of invisible substance. The so-called spirit world must be understood simply as spirit beings inhabiting material worlds created by God. Heaven itself is a material place(Gen. 1:1; Heb. 11:10-16), having cities, mansions, furniture, inhabitants, living conditions, etc.

God has been seen physically by human eyes many times (Gen. 18:1-33; 19:24; 32:24-30; Ex. 24:11; 33:11-23; Josh. 5:13-15; Judg. 6:11-23; 13:3-25; 1Chr. 21:16-17; Job 42:5; Isa. 6; Ezek. 1:26-28; 10:1,20; 40:3; Dan. 7:9-14; 10:5-10; Acts 7:56-59; Rev. 4:2-5; 5:1,5-7,11-14; 6:16; 7:9-17; 19:4; 21:3-5; 22:4).

In over 20,000 references about God in Scripture we get to know all we need to know about the subject. If we will take the Bible literally as to what it says about Him, as we do with other things the subject will be very clear; but if we make God a mystery, ignoring the plain statements of Scripture about Him, and refusing to believe the many descriptions of God given by those who have seen one, two, and three separate persons called “God,” then we ill remain in ignorance.

It is true there are a few figurative statements about God in Scripture, as there are about man and other things, but shall we do away with the reality of man and these other things because of a few figures of speech? Let us make man mere salt and lights (Mt. 5:13-14), if we are going to do away with God because of a few figures of speech.

We submit the following facts in Scripture to prove a Divine Trinity of separate persons in the Godhead:

1. The word “one” means one in unity as well as one in number. It means unity in 1Jn. 5:7, as it does in Jn. 17:11,21-23, and yet these three Persons, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, are spoken of as one each in number and individuality in Scripture. There is one God the Father, one Lord Jesus Christ, and one Holy Spirit (1Cor. 8:6; Eph. 4:3-6). Thus, there are three separate Persons in divine individuality and divine pluralty. The Father is called God (1Cor. 8:6), the Son is called God (Isa. 9:6,7; Heb. 1:8; Jn. 1:1-2; 20:28), and the Holy Spirit is called God (Acts 5:3-4). As individual persons each can be called God and collectively they can be spoken of as one God because of their perfect unity. The word “God” is used either as a singular or a plural word, like sheep. Everything that could be spoken of God collectively applies equally to each member of the Godhead as an individual, but there are some things that are said of each person of the Deity as to position, office, and work that could not be spoken as of the other members of the Godhead. The Father is the head of Christ (1Cor. 11:3); the Son is the only begotten of the Father (2Jn. 1:3), and the Holy Spirit proceeds from both the Father and the Son (Jn. 14:16,26; 15:26; 16:7-15; Acts 2:34).

2. Names of God prove plurality of persons.(Gen. 3:5; Ex. 22:28; 1Sam. 4:8; Dan. 2:11; 4:6-9; 5:11,14; etc.).

3. Plural pronouns are used of God, proving plurality of persons (Gen. 1:26; 3:22; 11:7; Isa. 6:8; Jn. 14:23; 17:11,22-23).

4. First, second, and third personal pronouns are used hundreds of times in Scripture, referring to one, two, and three persons of the Godhead in the same sense they are used of men. Sometimes the different members of the Deity use them to and of one another in the same sense man uses them. In Jn. 17 alone Jesus uses them 162 Times in speaking to and of His Father (cp. Jn. 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15). Sometimes singular pronouns are used of the whole Godhead of three members as a unity (Ex. 20:3; Isa. 44:6,8; 45:5,21; 46:9; Hos. 13:4), just like the whole church as a unit is spoken of as a man and “he” (Eph. 2:14-15; 4:13; 5:25-27; 2Th. 2:7-8).

5. “Man is become as one of us” proves plurality of persons (Gen. 3:22).

6. Two and three Persons called God have been seen by the same men at the same time and places as being separate persons (Dan. 7:9-14; Mt. 3:16-17; Jn. 1:31-34; Acts 7:54-60; Rev. 6:16; 7:9-17; 21:22; 22:3).

7. Two Lords are mentioned in Gen. 19:24; one on earth and one in heaven.

8. Two Persons are referred to in the Old Testament See Ps. 8:5-6 with Heb. 2:5-18; Ps. 16:8-10 with Acts 2:25-36; Ps. 22:1-22 with Mt. 27:35,39-43,45-46; Heb. 9:14; 10:5-12; Ps. 40:6-10 with Heb. 10:5-7; and Ps. 45:6-7 with Heb. 1:8-9.

9. Two Lords are mentioned sitting side by side (Ps. 110:1,5; Mt. 22:44; 26:64; Acts 2:33-34; 7:54-56; Rom. 8:34; Eph. 1:20; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3,13; 8:1; 10:12; 12:2; 1Pet. 3:22; Rev. 22:3).

10. Two Persons are mentioned and required in order to understand the plain language of Ps. 2; 9:19; 132:17; Prov. 30:4; Isa. 4:2; 10:16-17; 28:16; 49:1-10; 50:4-11; 52:13 – Isa. 53:12; 62:11; Mic. 5:1-5; Jer. 23:4-8; 33:14-26; Zech. 3:8-10; 6:12-13. In these passages one is anointed, becomes the son of, is sent by, is taught by, and becomes the servant of the other; and both are called Lord.

11. Three self-acting Persons — the Lord God, the Messiah, and the Holy Spirit — are referred to as blessing, anointing, sending, and doing things for one another in Isa. 11:2; 42:1-7; 48:16; 59:21; 61:1-2; 63:1-14; Zech. 12:10 — Zech. 13:2.

12. In Zech. 1:7-21 the Lord of Hosts and the angel of the Lord (also called Lord, Zech. 1:19-20; 2:1-13) are talking together. One Lord says of the other Lord that He has sent Him to Israel (Zech. 2:8-13). One Lord refers to Himself as “Me” and to the Lord of Hosts as “His” and “He” (Zech. 2:8-11). The conference continues throughout Zechariah until Zech. 13:6-7 where both Lords are called fellows or associate.

13. Jesus Christ is called the son of Abraham, David, Mary, and of God (Mt. 1:1; Mk. 1:1; 6:3). He is just as much a separate person from God as He is of these other persons.

14. Two Persons are referred to many times in the New Testament (Mt. 11:27; Lk. 23:46; Jn. 1:1-2,18; 5:19-20; 14:1-9; 16:15; 17:3,10; Acts 2:38-39; 3:13-26; Php. 2:5-11; Eph. 3:5; Col. 1:5; 2Th. 2:16-17; Tit. 2:13; Heb. 1:1-3; Rev. 20:6; 22:3).

15. Two and three Persons are mentioned in the introductions to New Testament books (Rom. 1:1-4,7; 1Cor. 1:3; Jas. 1:1; 1Pet. 1:1-3; 2Jn. 1:3; Rev. 1:1-6; etc.).

16. God is the head of Christ and thus greater than He in position (1Cor. 3:23; 11:3; 1Chr. 29:11; Jn. 14:28).

17. Christ is the mediator between God and man, not between Himself and man (1Tim. 2:5).

18. Two and three Persons are referred to in every New Testament book (Mt. 3:16-17; 12:31-32; 17:5; 22:43-45; 28:19; Mk. 1:1-2,10; 13:32; Lk. 1:32-35; 2:40,52; 3:22; 4:1; 4:18; 9:35; 23:46; 24:39 with Jn. 4:24; Jn. 1:1-3,14,18; 5:17-25,31-38; 6:37,44-46,57; 7:16-18,28,37-39; 8:13-19,26-38,42,54; 10:15-18,24,29,36; 12:26-31,44,49-50; 14:1-26,28-30; 15:1-26; 16:1-33; 17:1-26; 18:11; 20:17,21; 18:11; 20:17,21; Acts 1:7-8; 2:24-36; 3:13-26; 4:10,26-31; 5:29-33; 7:37,55-56; 8:12-17; 9:17; 10:38-48; 17:31; Rom. 1:3,7,9; 5:1-11; 8:1-13,26-39; 1Cor. 1:3-9; 2:10; 3:23; 8:6; 11:3; 12:3; 15:57; 2Cor. 1:2-3; 5:17-21; 13:14; Gal. 1:1-3; Eph. 1:2-3; 3:14; 4:3-6; 6:23; Php. 1:2; 2:5-11; Col. 1:2-3,13-19; 3:1; 1Th. 1:1-10; 3:13; 2Th. 1:1-2; 2:16; 1Tim. 1:2; 2:5; 5:21; 6:14-16; 2Tim. 1:2; 4:1; Tit. 1:4; 2:13; Phm. 1:3; see note, Rev. 5:13 for 30 last New Testament references). In no conceivable way can we force a meaning of three persons in one person; three beings in one being; or three manifestations of only one person in any of these or any other scripture.

19. There are three distinct and separate witnesses that bear witness of Christ (1Jn. 5:5-11,13,20). Both God and man require this many personal and separate witnesses to confirm any point (Mt. 18:16; 2Cor. 13:1). The water and blood of 1Jn. 5:8 could not be accepted as accredited personal witnesses to confirm any point (Mt. 18:16; 2Cor. 13:1). The water and blood of 1Jn. 5:8 could not be accepted as accredited personal witness in themselves. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit are the only persnal witnesses of this passage. If we consider these to be only one person, then there are not the required number of witnesses to establish the truth of the Sonship of Jesus Christ. We are forced by facts to admit all of 1Jn. 5:7-8 as inspired Scripture and therefore, the fact that the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are three separate and personal witnesses instead of being only one person or witness. Indeed, many scriptures confirm these three witnesses:

(1) The Father (Jer. 29:23; Mal. 3:5; Jn. 5:31-37, notes; Rom. 1:9; Heb. 1:1-2; 2:3-4)

(2) The Son (Isa. 55:4; Jn. 18:37; 1Tim. 6:13; Rev. 1:5)

(3) The Holy Spirit (Rom. 8:16; Jn. 15:26; Heb. 10:15; 1Jn. 3:6) If all three are witnesses, then they must be separate Persons. The water and the blood simply confirm the intelligent testimonies of the three Persons of the Godhead and give additional weight to the Sonship of Jesus.

20. The words through and by, used of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, but not once of the Father, prove that God to be a separate Person and the Head and Director of all things done by and through them (1Cor. 3:23; 11:3; Jn. 10:29; 14:28; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15; Acts 2:33-34):

(1) Through Jesus Christ (Acts 4:2; Rom. 1:8; 5:1,9,11; 6:23; 7:25; 15:17; 16:27; 1Cor. 15:57; 2Cor. 3:4; Gal. 3:14; 4:7; 5:10; Eph. 2:7,18; Php. 4:7,13; Tit. 3:6; Heb. 13:21; 1Pet. 1:22; 4:11; 1Jn. 4:9)

(2) By Jesus Christ (Jn. 1:3,10,17; 10:9; Acts 4:10; 10:36; Rom. 2:16; 3:22; 5:17,21; Gal. 1:1; Eph. 1:5; 3:9; Col. 1:15-20; 3:17; Heb. 1:1-3; 1Pet. 2:5; 5:10)

(3) Through the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:2; 21:4; Rom. 8:13; 15:13,19; Gal. 5:5; Eph. 2:22; Heb. 9:14)

(4) By the Holy Spirit (Ezek. 11:24; Mic. 3:8; Zech. 4:6; Mt. 12:28; Lk. 2:27; 4:1; Acts 11:28; Rom. 5:5; 15:19; 1Cor. 2:10; 6:11; 12:3,13)

Proofs that Jesus Is Not the Father:

21. The Father was in heaven all the time that Jesus was on earth (Mt. 5:16,48).

22. Christ now sits at the right hand of the Father (see note 9, above).

23. Jesus said He would confess men “before My Father,” proving He is not the Father (Mt. 10:32; Rev. 3:5).

24. Jesus always prayed to the Father as a separate Person (Mt. 11:25; Jn. 17).

25. The Father existed outside the body of Jesus, so He could not be Jesus (Mt. 2:12; 3:17; 17:5; Jn. 12:27-30).

26. Both Jesus and Satan refer to a God separate from Jesus (Mt. 4:6-10).

27. God was the Father of Jesus, not Jesus Himself (Eph. 1:3,17; 3:14).

28. In parables Jesus illustrates His relationship to the Father as that of separate persons (Mt. 21:33-46; Jn. 15:1-8).

29. People are taught to go directly to the Father and not to pray to Jesus (Jn. 14:12-15; 15:16; 16:23-26).

30. The Father knew things that Jesus did not know (Mk. 13:32; Acts 1:7).

31. Others saw Jesus as a separate Person from the Father (Dan. 7:9-14; Acts 7:56).

32. Jesus committed His own spirit to the Father, not to Himself (Lk. 23:46).

33. Jesus claimed that He came from God and was going back to God (Jn. 8:42; 16:5; 10:36; 17:8).

34. God is a Spirit, not flesh and blood like Jesus was (Jn. 4:24; 19:34; Mt. 16:17; Lk. 24:39).

35. People on earth with Jesus heard God speak as a separate person from heaven (Mt. 3:17; 17:5; 2Pet. 1:16-18).

36. Jesus claimed to be the Son of God, not the Father Himself (Jn. 5:17-35).

37. Jesus called the Father “My God,” even after the resurrection (Jn. 20:17; Rev. 3:12).

38. Jesus called God “My Father” 57 times (Jn. 15:1; Rev. 2:27). How could He be His own God and Father and beget Himself?

39. When Jesus was born on earth angels and people still recognized God in heaven (Lk. 2:7-16). Were they mistaken about God? Was the child all of God on earth and in heaven also?

40. Mary and Joseph acted with utmost ignorance if the baby Jesus was all of God, for they presented Him to the Lord Who was someone other than Jesus (Lk. 2:22).

41. Simeon had a revelation and guidance from the Holy Spirit that Jesus was not the only member of the Godhead (Lk. 2:26-33).

42. John the Baptist knew the Father, but he did not know the Son (Jn. 1:31-34).

43. The Son died, not the Father (1Cor. 15:3; 1Pet. 2:24).

44. Jesus was the only begotten Son of the Father, so could not be the Father or the begetter of Himself (Jn. 1:14).

45. Jesus claimed that He could not and did not do anything of Himself, but that the Father worked through Him (Jn. 5:19,30; 6:38; 8:28; 12:49-50).

46. He did not come to do His own will, but that of the Father who sent Him (Jn. 5:30; 6:38).

47. His doctrine was not His, but the Father’s (Jn. 7:16-17; 8:26).

48. He did not speak of Himself, but of the Father who had sent Him (Jn. 7:16-18; 8:26-40).

49. He did not please Himself, but the Father (Jn. 8:29).

50. He was a Son, not a Father over the house of God (Jn. 8:35-36; Heb. 3:6).

51. He had the same relation to His Father that men have with Satan (Jn. 8:16,35-44; 9:4).

52. He honored the Father as all people should (Jn. 8:49).

53. He did not seek His own glory, but that of the Father (Jn. 8:50-54; 17:4).

54. He knew the Father, but was not the Father (Jn. 8:55; 10:15).

55. He was loved by the Father as a separate person (Jn. 10:17-18).

56. He kept the Father’s commandments and they were not His own (Jn. 12:49-50; 15:10).

57. His disciples were given to Him by the Father (Jn. 10:29; 17:1-25).

58. He was equal with the Father in some things, but not in others (Mk. 13:32; Jn. 5:17-39; 8:13-19,29-42; 19:18-29; Acts 1:7; 1Cor. 11:3; Rev. 1:1).

59. He and the Father were in unity and in each other in the same sense believers are to be in unity and in God (Jn. 10:38; 14:10-11,23; 17:11,21-23).

60. He was the only way to the Father (Jn. 6:37; 14:6).

61. He said, I am not alone or the only witness of My sonship. The Father is another witness (Jn. 5:36-38; 8:13-19,54; 12:49-50; 14:10-11).

62. Over 80 times Jesus affirmed that He was not the Father and not the only person in the Godhead. Christ was the speaker, but not the one spoken of or to (Mt. 7:21; 11:27; 18:10,35; Lk. 2:49; Jn. 5:17-43; 8:19-49; 10:17-37; 14:7-28; 15:1-26; Rev. 1:1; etc.). Is it any wonder that the Godhead, the Trinity, and the unity of God are so mysterious when we force separate persons to become only one person, all because we do not want to recognize the true meaning of the word one as referring to unity rather than individuality in some scriptures? People would be just as great a mystery if we forced the meaning of all men to refer to one person.

63. He was not as great as His Father (Jn. 10:29; 14:28; cp. 1Cor. 11:3).

64. The Father (Mt. 3:17), Jesus (Jn. 10:36), angels (Lk. 1:32-35), demons (Mk. 3:11; 5:7), and apostles (Mt. 16:16; Jn. 1:14; Rom. 8:32; 2Jn. 1:3), all declare the sonship of Jesus, but not once do they declare a Christ-fatherhood.

65. The Father and the Son spoke to each other in audible voices at the same time and place, being heard by many witnesses (Mt. 3:16-17; 7:5; Jn. 12:27-30; 2Pet. 1:17). In no single instance could such speaking be explained as the voice of one individual or be used to prove one Person in the Deity.

66. The word “both” is used of the Father and the Son, proving two Persons (Jn. 15:24; 2Jn. 1:9).

67. The word “also” is used of the Father and the Son, proving two Persons (Jn. 5:19,27; 8:19; 13:32; 14:1).

68. The statement, “They have not known the Father nor Me,” proves two Persons (Jn. 16:3,5).

69. Christ received all power in heaven and in earth (Mt. 28:18). The Father had to be greater than Jesus to give Him that power (Jn. 14:28).

70. Jesus was resurrected and exalted by the Father, so He could not be the Father (Eph. 1:20-23; Php. 2:9-11; Heb. 12:2; 1Pet. 3:22)

71. God made Jesus both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:33-36).

72. Six times in Jn. 14:1-9 Jesus made it clear that He was not the Father.

Holy Spirit Is Not Jesus Or the Father:

73. The Holy Spirit is another Person, distinct from both the Father and the Son (Jn. 5:32; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15).

74. It was necessary that Jesus go away so that the Holy Spirit could come (Jn. 16:5-15).

75. He has been seen with the natural eyes as a separate Person from the Father and the Son (Mt. 3:16-17; Jn. 1:31-34; Rev. 4:5; 5:6).

76. He is symbolized as a separate Person with Christ, both of them before God who sits on a throne (Rev. 1:4-5; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6).

77. He could not be sent from God until Christ was glorified, but would then be sent from both the Father and the Son (Jn. 7:37-39; Acts 2:33-34).

78. He was sent from the Father to endow Jesus with power. This required three Persons: the One who sent Him, the One being sent, and the One who received Him (Acts 10:38; Isa. 11:2; 42:1-7; 61:1-2).

79. A clear distinction is made of the names of all three Persons (Mt. 28:19; 2Cor. 13:14; 1Jn. 5:7).

80. A clear distinction is made between the Son who prays, the Father to whom He prays, and the Holy Spirit for whom He prays (Jn. 14:16).

81. A clear distinction is made between the Son on the right hand of the Father, the Father on the left hand of the Son, and the Holy Spirit who is sent from the Father and the Son (Acts 2:33-36; 7:56; Jn. 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15).

82. The Son was already given (Jn. 3:16), when the Spirit was not yet given (Jn. 7:39).

83. The Son can be blasphemed with forgiveness possible; but if the Spirit is blasphemed, no forgiveness is possible. This proves two distinct Persons (Mt. 12:31-32; Mk. 3:29-30; Lk. 12:10).

84. The Samaritans received Jesus, but had not yet received the Holy Spirit (Acts 8:5-25).

85. Jesus could do no miracle by Himself (Jn. 5:19), but by the Holy Spirit He did many miracles (Jn. 2:11; Acts 10:38)

86. The Holy Spirit came not to speak of or glorify Himself, but to speak of and glorify Jesus (Jn. 16:7-15).

87. The descent of the Holy Spirit proved the arrival of Jesus in heaven to sit at the right hand of God, thus proving three Persons (Acts 2:33-34; Jn. 7:39).

88. Jesus claimed even after the resurrection that He was not a spirit being, so He could not be the Father or the Holy Spirit who are spirit beings (Lk. 24:39; Jn. 4:24; 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15).

89. In the last book of the Bible the Trinity is seen as working together in all things (Rev. 1:4-6; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6; 21:10; 22:17).” />

Can no one I this group see just his me DIVISIVE that is? Oh folks.. just to worship Jesus. Please!

Trinity and oneness theology both have lot to do with Pentecostal Theology as they form the basic pneumatology as the bases of Pentecostalism

William Lance Huget [01/04/2016 3:41 PM]
Some Pentecostals are trinitarian and some Oneness. Dake had an usual 9 person theory that influenced Jimmy Swaggart and Benny Hinn (the latter has renounced it now). William Branham was Oneness. We need great care and discernment when using one man only. There are far more credible, conservative, evangelical scholarship (Fee=Pentecostal, etc.) than some of the speculative ideas of Dake (gap theory, etc.) and others.

John Kissinger [01/04/2016 3:43 PM]
You think gap theory is speculative or Dake’s? Care to elaborate in the Gap theory discussion? https://www.facebook.com/groups/thelogy/permalink/942741379114211/

All of the mysterious questions of God’s nature are answered with this belief. No room for confusion in my book. This has been my belief on the issue for some time. Thanks for sharing this slightly exhaustive outline. 🙂

So which one raised Christ from the dead? Jesus said he would raise himself. But if the spirit that raised Christ from the sea doesn’t live in us we ain’t saved, however it was the father is what scripture said. So which one again if they are not the same?

John Kissinger [01/09/2016 9:59 PM]
YES! Timothy Carter

William Lance Huget [01/10/2016 12:09 AM]
Creation, redemption, resurrection, etc. are said to be from God, from the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit (verses can be found about each or all together). It is the work of the triune God. This does not prove modalism, but refutes it.

Timothy Carter [01/10/2016 12:23 AM]
John Conger the answer is “YES”

Jesus said that He and the Father are one (John 17 and many other places) that He only does what He sees the Father do. So yes Jesus raised Himself. This is by way of He needs NO Human to say “come forward!” As Lazarus needed. Also The Father raised Him because it is the will of the Father that He be raised.

John Conger [01/10/2016 12:54 AM]
So you agree they’re not two different people?

William Lance Huget [01/10/2016 1:04 AM]
The Father and Son are personally distinct, yet share the same eternal nature as the one true God, YHWH. Arianism, polytheism, Sabellianism are wrong views. The biblical, historical, orthodox view is trinitarianism.

John Kissinger [01/10/2016 7:14 AM]
No John Conger there’s no people in the #TRINITY – just GOD

      AJ Gambhir

      were there 89 verses? I feel its more about how people describe Trinity and words they use. I tend to stay away from saying 3 persons, person word doesnt apply on Spirit and the Father entity. The word “form or entity” is better. Definitely all three are different in some aspects. Find one verse where anyone can harm the Father form? but people did harm the Son or basically God in physical form. They did mock the Son and were forgiven but what about blasphemy to the Holy Spirit? so one form was hurt and mocked and people were forgiven but heresy towards the Spirit isnt? Oneness pentecostals basically lack exposure to spiritual stuff, they know something but they still dont know it enough. Oneness belief is that a person cannot have other spiritual gifts like prophecy and exorcisms without the gift of tongues. But practically, people have spoken in tongues and prophecized even before having water baptism. Oneness churches lack practical knowledge of Spiritual realm of Bible; hence they dont understand how a person can prophecise without tongues or some other beliefs they hold. Again its not so much about Trinity as Oneness people believe in Trinity also but they dont use it in every way; hence they are confused to understand the concept of Trinity.

      Some theologians are also saying that Jesus was just as tempted as we are, which means carnal thoughts went through Jesus’s thought process because He was fully man. Now this analogy disregards the Divinity aspect, its like saying Jesus was fully man so He should have sinned also. Just coz several theologians believe that toddlers carry sins of Adam in them, weird stuff. Its human wisdom that lacks respect for Divinity sometimes and achieve benefits. Because if they can prove that Jesus was equally tempted, now they can say its okay to have carnal thoughts in a person’s life. No judgement towards those who struggle but the idea to lower the spiritually grown examples in Bible to justify one’s flaws is old tactic, although commonly used these days also

      Jesus if stood in His full Divinity, He would have melted mountains and some funny ecological stuff would have happened. It’s basically the format of how even though Omnipotent, his body was affected by natural stuff.

      In short, Jesus represents a body, that was embodied by God and His full Spiritual power wasn’t available on Earth at that moment.

      So at the river, it’s transitioning of His Power. If Jesus was blameless all throughout, was there a need for Baptism?

      Baptism here represents that Jesus or God was showing how people should be Baptized

    Never anywhere in the Bible it says Hear o Israel Lord your God is Triune. It doesn’t exist. There is Only ONE God and There are lots of One God references not one Triune. There is only ONE God who is Spirit and came into this world and took name Jesus.

    And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifested in the flesh, Justified in the Spirit, Seen by angels, Preached among the Gentiles, Believed on in the world, Received up in glory.

      Perfect man in flesh was praying to His Godhead. Jesus was 100 percent man and fullness of Godhead. He was praying to His Godhead side to show us where to turn to.
      God dwells in unapproachble light and powerful Glory no one has ever seen Him or can see. 1 Tim 6:15.
      This unapproachble light became approachable in Christ Jesus John 1:9.
      If Triune God’s are co equal then why Jesus prayed to God???
      Because it doesn’t exist. MAN Jesus was praying to Jesus the God, The great I am, The everlasting father..

      God in His essential being is invisible (John 1:18, I Timothy 1:17), unknowable (Luke 10:22, Matthew 11:27), immaterial (John 4:24), omnipresent (Psalm 139:7-12), is one in number and unity (Deuteronomy 6:4), is Father of the universe as Creator / Progenitor (Isaiah 63:16, 9:6, Psalm 89:26), and Paternally to humanity as Nurturer and Caregiver (Psalm 103:13, Matthew 9:6)…

      The Word is God self-revealing (John.1:1-3), God’s self-disclosure of Himself (Hebrew1:1-3, Isaiah 9:6), God going out from Himself (Revelation 5:6,7) God proceeding or emanating; the one whose “goings forth” have been from of old, from everlasting (Micah 5:2 Revelation 1:8).

      Jesus Christ is the Word become flesh (John 1: 1, 14 Micah 5:2), God manifest in the flesh (I Timothy 3:16), the image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15), and in Him dwelleth all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Colossians 2:9). He is God visible (Hebrews 1:1-3), knowable (John 14:8), approachable (Matthew 11:28-30), touchable (I John. 1:1-3, John. 20:27), is the revealer of the Father (John 14:9, 17:6), the only way to the Father (Matthew 11:27, John 14:6-8), and the Father revealed (John 10:30, Isaiah.9:6, Revelation 1:8, 11). He is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, the Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come (Revelation 1:8). He is also completely human (Hebrews 2:10-18), the true son of Mary (Matthew 2:1, Luke 2:33, 34, Galatians 4:4), the second man Adam (I Corinthians 15:47), the last Adam (I Corinthians 15:45), and the Son of God by both birth (Luke 1:35, Rom. 1:3), and declaration (Romans 1:4, Acts 13:33). His victory over death, hell, and the grave (I Corinthians 15:1-4) elevates the name of Jesus to the position of highest universal authority. The full power and authority of the Godhead is encapsulated in that name (John 5:43, Philippians 2:9, John 14:13, 14, 26, Acts 4:12).

      The Holy Spirit is God indwelling the believer in personal agency, (Jeremiah 31:31-33, Romans 8:9), is one Spirit (I Corinthians 12:13), is the Spirit of Grace (Hebrews 10:29), is the Spirit of God (Romans 8:9), is the Spirit of Jesus (John 14:17, 18, Acts 16:7, II Corinthians 3:17), is the source of and medium for dispensing God’s grace in the Church Age (Acts 2:38, I Corinthians 12:l), and is essential for salvation (Acts 2:36-38, 11:14, Romans 8:9).

      I gave you the whole Bible Reference for ONE God. Any doctrine can’t be established with ONE verse or one reference. Though there is not one Triune God verse or reference. May Lord God bless you & give you all revelation of One True Living God who took on flesh and took name Jesus the name which is above all the names and there is no other name Name.

    Is the word trinity in the Bible? No.
    Does the Bible say that there are three persons in the Godhead? No.
    Does the Bible speak of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost? Yes.
    Do these titles as used in Matthew 28:19 mean that there are three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead? No, they refer to three offices, roles, or relationship to humanity.
    Does the Bible use the word three in reference to God? Only one verse in the entire Bible does so-1 John 5:7. It speaks of the Father, the Word (instead of Son), and the Holy Ghost, and it concludes by saying, “These three are one.”
    Does the Bible use the word one in reference to God? Yes, many times. For example, see Zechariah 14:9; Malachi 2:10; Matthew 23:9; Mark 12:29, 32; John 8:41; 10:30; Romans 3:30; 1 Corinthians 8:4; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5; James 2:19.
    Can the mystery of the Godhead be understood? Yes. Romans 1:20; Colossians 2:9; 1 Timothy 3:16.
    Has the Christian only one Heavenly Father? Yes. Matthew 23:9.
    Then why did Jesus say to Philip, “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” (John 14:39)?Because Jesus is the express image of God’s person. Hebrews 1:3. The Greek word forpersonin this verse literally means “substance.”
    Does the Bible say that there are two persons in the Godhead? No.
    Does the Bible say that all the Godhead is revealed in one person? Yes, in Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:19; 2:9; Hebrews 1:3.
    Is the mystery of the Deity hidden from some people? Yes. Luke 10:21-22.
    Who is the Father? The Father is the one God, particularly as revealed in parental relationship to humanity. Deuteronomy 32:6; Malachi 2:10.
    Where was God the Father while Jesus was on earth? The Father was in Christ. John 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:19. He was also in heaven, for God is omnipresent.
    Did the prophet Isaiah say that Jesus would be the Father? Yes. Isaiah 9:6; 63:16.
    When God said, “Let us make man in our image” (Genesis 1:26), was He speaking to another person in the Godhead? No. Isaiah 44:24; Malachi 2:10.
    How many of God’s qualities were in Christ? All. Colossians 2:9.
    How may we see the God who sent Jesus into the world? By seeing Jesus. John 12:44-45; 14:9.
    Does the Bible say that Jesus is the Almighty? Yes. Revelation 1:8
    Whom do some designate as the first person in the trinity? God the Father.
    Whom do some designate as the last person in the trinity? The Holy Ghost. But Jesus said that He was the first and last. Revelation 1:17-18
    How many persons did John see sitting on the throne in heaven? One. Revelation 4:2.
    If Jesus is the first and the last, why did God say in Isaiah 44:6 that He was the first and the last? Because Jesus is the God of the Old Testament incarnate.
    Did Jesus tell Satan that God alone should be worshipped? Yes. Matthew 4:10
    Does the devil believe in more than one God? No. James 2:19.
    Does the Bible say that God, who is the Word, was made flesh? Yes John 1:1, 14.
    For what purpose was God manifested in the flesh? To save sinners. Hebrews 2:9, 14.
    Was Jesus God manifested in the flesh? Yes. 1 Timothy 3:16.
    Could Jesus have been on earth and in heaven at the same time? Yes. John 3:13.
    Does the Bible say that there is but one Lord? Yes. Isaiah 45:18; Ephesians 4:5.
    Does the Bible say that Christ is the Lord? Yes. Luke 2:11.
    Does the Bible say that the Lord is God? Yes. I kings 18:39; Zechariah 14:5; Acts 2:39; Revelation 19:1.
    How could the church belong to Jesus (Matthew 16:18) and yet be the church of God (1 Corinthians 10:32)? Because Jesus is God in the flesh.
    Will God give His glory to another? No. Isaiah 42:8.
    Was there a God formed before Jehovah, or will there be one formed after? No. Isaiah 43:10.
    What is one thing that God does not know? Another God. Isaiah 44:8.
    What is one thing that God Cannot do? Lie. Titus 1:2.
    How many Gods should we know? Only one. Hosea 13:4.
    How many names has the Lord? One. Zechariah 14:9.
    Is it good to think upon the name of the Lord? Yes. Malachi 3:16.
    Does the Bible say that God alone treads upon the waves of the sea? Yes. Job 9:8
    Why, then, was Jesus able to walk upon the Sea of Galilee (Matthew 14:25)? Because He is God the Creator. Colossians 1:16.
    Is God the only one who can forgive sin? Yes. Isiah 43:25; Mark 2:7.
    Why, then, could Jesus forgive sin in Mark 2:5-11? Because He is God the Savior.
    Is Jesus the true God? Yes. 1 John 5:20.
    If God and the Holy Ghost are two separate persons, which was the Father of Christ?Matthew 1:20 says that the Holy Ghost was the Father, while Romans 15:6, 2 Corinthians 11:31, and Ephesians 1:3 say that God was the Father. There is no contradiction when we realize that God the Father and the Holy Ghost are one and the same Spirit. Matthew 10:20; Ephesians 4:4; 1 Corinthians 3:16.
    When Paul asked the Lord who He was, what was the answer? “I am Jesus.” Acts 9:5.
    When Stephen was dying, did he call God Jesus? Yes. Acts 7:59.
    Did Thomas ever call Jesus God? Yes. John 20:28.
    How could Jesus be the Savior, when God the Father said in Isaiah 43:11, “Beside me there is no Savior?” Because “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself.” 2 Corinthians 5:19.
    Does the Bible say that Jesus was God with us? Yes. Matthew 1:23.
    Did Jesus ever say, “I and my Father are one?” Yes. John 10:30.
    Can it be proved scripturally that Jesus and the Father are one in the same sense that husband and wife are one? No. The Godhead was never compared to the relationship of a husband and wife. Jesus identified Himself with the Father in a way that husband and wife cannot be identified with each other. John 14:9-11.
    Does the Bible say that there is only one wise God? Yes. Jude 25.
    Does the Bible call the Holy Ghost a second or third person in the Godhead? No. The Holy Ghost is the one Spirit of God, the one God Himself at work in our lives. John 4:24; 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 6:19; 12:13.
    Can Trinitarians show that three divine persons were present when Jesus was baptized by John? Absolutely not. The one, omnipresent God used three simultaneous manifestations. Only one divine person was present–Jesus Christ the Lord.
    Then what were the other two of whom Trinitarians speak? One was a voice from heaven; the other was the Spirit of God in the form of a dove. Matthew 3:16-17.
    What did the voice say at Jesus’ baptism? “Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Mark 1:11. As the Son of God, Jesus was the one God incarnate.
    Does the Bible say that God shed His blood and that God laid down His life for us? Yes. Acts 20:28; 1 John 3:16. God was able to do this because He had taken upon Himself a human body.
    The Bible says that God is coming back with all his saints (Zechariah 14:5) and also that Jesus is coming back with all his saints (1 Thessalonians 3:13). Are two coming back? No. Only one is coming back–our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Titus 2:13.

Finding truth and following Jesus is a life lifelong process that will always include some purging away of false ideas or at least acknowledging what lines up with Bible truth and what’s in direct opposition to it and what is just a hindrance to gaining more truth. How can we help save the world when we insist on holding to made up words used to murder millions of people. Most who will not become christian use the inquisitions and wars over the trinity as excuse to never find more of God. Why not just accept… oh that was a mistake christianity made for a while during the middle ages based on man made doctrine like Mary is a Goddess and the praying to the saints and purgatory and other things that were just made up to put together pagan pantheism with Judeo-Christian monotheism…. so yeah lay down your swords of not the Word and find some truth by setting aside everything that’s not biblical ?

NOW, please consider that the word “God” in Hebrew in Gen. 1:1 is “elohim”, a PLURALITY of more than 2. then there’s 1:26 witht he blending of singular and plural, repeated in 11:7 & Mat. 2819. Back to Gen, there’s 18:1-3; 19:24; Num. 6:24-26; Deut. 6: 4,5 (“one being the same word used in Gen :24; “unity” NOT the value of one.)Isa. 6:3, 8; 43:11; 48:16.17; 60:17; 61:1,2; Dan. 2:47; mat. 3:16,17; 17:1-8; Lk 1:35; 9:28-36; Acts10:38; Rom. 15:15-19; 1 Cor. 12:4-6; 2 Cor. 13:14; Gal. 4:6; Eph. 2: 13, 18; 3:16,17; 1 Pet. 1:2; 3:18 1 Jn. 2:4; 4:13,14 & 5:7 (yes, it belongs!)

      Troy Day How many times have you sent yourself, returned to your Father’s house or were your own father. If Jesus felt it was important for Christians to see things in the Modalist viewpoint, he sure had a funny way of showing it.

      In fact, one of my main sticking points about the insistence that people be baptized in Jesus name or it’s not a legitimate baptism, is the words of Jesus in Matthew 28.

      No one was ever a better teacher than Jesus, because he is God and was already living in the future, when 99% of all Christians were being baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost because they wanted to follow the words of Jesus. I don’t believe that Jesus is in Heaven doing a face palm.

      Having said that, I’m an economic Trinitarian. My views on the Godhead are not much different than non Modalist Oneness believers.

      The three main differences I have is that I believe that Jesus was begotten in eternity, I believe the name Jesus only belongs to Jesus and I believe the legitimacy of water baptism is based on what’s in the heart of the person being baptized.

      If you believe that you have to repeat the exact phrase at the perfect time, “I baptize you in the name of Jesus”, then you believe that an incantation saves people. God isn’t as interested in what comes out of the pastor’s mouth, he’s interested in what’s in the convert’s heart.

The Holy Spirit is Gods Spirit here on earth .They are 3 different persons but they are the same . They are all God . Once you know the Holy Spirit as a person he will reveal to you Jesus and the Father . The holy trinity is all through the Bible . It’s not hard to understand . The spirit will help you understand that’s why he’s called the helper . Jesus said I will send you another comforter. To be with you forever . He came on the day of Pentecost . He also came and anointed Jesus when he was being babtised by John the babtist . Study ? the word as for the Holy Spirit to reveal the mystery to you . And what you need to know .

It came from rhema word of God . Living word . God is a living God . He speaks to the spirit . The written word is the libros . Most people want to break it down and understand it in the mind . Or with their brain ?. That’s not how it’s done ✅. It’s done in the spirit realm . So the Holy Spirit speaks to your spirit . It can be confusing and at one time it was to me as well . But God broke it down to me . So I could understand it . Like any scripture. I wait to hear from God on it . And the Holy Spirit. Reveals it to me . I leArned to cut out my mind and brain ? from trying to interpret scripture. And if God speaks I hear him . It’s a still small voice in my spirit .

      it’s just more imaginary grammar fantasies with no other name or word or spirit.

      you can’t say persons or more than one name and the bible still be true.

      by that logic you can insert anything into scripture.

    you literally need to omit this from the Bible for the trinity to work.

  • Stephen Suba so then what do these people say “Trinity” is? You seemed missed the point here in Trinity. God is One who is self-revealed in three persons. So trinity doesn’t mean three Gods (x). Here again, God is ONE but self-revealed to men in three persons. For God who is all powerful to reveal Himself in three persons might not be a difficult stuff. He still can choose to reveal Himself in more than three if needed. However, the Bible teaches revealed in three persons only (period).

Show me one verse where they actually baptized saying father son and spirit. the apostles knew that makes no sense. It’s like if you pay your rent and sign it father son and guy with a spirit.

We are talking about the same thing . God is God . If he is Holy and righteous and all powerful and loves you it’s God . So we are seeing the same thing I can just see it different becUse I asked God to reveal himself to me .And this is the way I see it . Many see it my way .some have the same argument . As you do . But we are seeking and loving the same God .he is one ☝️.. somehow in three persons .The Holy Spirit is not a force or power he is a person . So ask him to reveal himself to you as a person . He is fully God . Jesus is fully God and so is the father .only difference is the ministry .the wAy God operAtes but yes they are exactly the same person . All God .brother you are right .

      Jeremy Rice Especially due to the existence of the Mesha Stele, the Jahwist tradition found in Exod. 3:15, and ancient Hebrew and Greek texts, biblical scholars widely hold that the tetragrammaton and other names of God were spoken by the ancient Israelites and their neighbours.[110][111][112]:40

      Some time after the destruction of Solomon’s Temple, the spoken use of God’s name as it was written ceased among the people, even though knowledge of the pronunciation was perpetuated in rabbinic schools.[24] The Talmud relays this occurred after the death of Simeon the Just (either Simon I or his great-great-grandson Simon II).[113] Philo calls it ineffable, and says that it is lawful for those only whose ears and tongues are purified by wisdom to hear and utter it in a holy place (that is, for priests in the Temple). In another passage, commenting on Lev. xxiv. 15 seq.: “If any one, I do not say should blaspheme against the Lord of men and gods, but should even dare to utter his name unseasonably, let him expect the penalty of death.”[24]

      Rabbinic sources suggest that the name of God was pronounced only once a year, by the high priest, on the Day of Atonement.[114] Others, including Maimonides,[115] claim that the name was pronounced daily in the liturgy of the Temple in the priestly benediction of worshippers (Num. vi. 27), after the daily sacrifice; in the synagogues, though, a substitute (probably “Adonai”) was used.[24] According to the Talmud, in the last generations before the fall of Jerusalem, the name was pronounced in a low tone so that the sounds were lost in the chant of the priests.[24] Since the destruction of Second Temple of Jerusalem in 70 CE, the tetragrammaton has no longer been pronounced in the liturgy. However the pronunciation was still known in Babylonia in the latter part of the 4th century.[24]

      Spoken prohibitions
      Edit
      The vehemence with which the utterance of the name is denounced in the Mishnah suggests that use of Yahweh was unacceptable in rabbinical Judaism. “He who pronounces the Name with its own letters has no part in the world to come!”[24] Such is the prohibition of pronouncing the Name as written that it is sometimes called the “Ineffable”, “Unutterable”, or “Distinctive Name”.[116][117][118]

      Halakha prescribes that whereas the Name written “yodh he waw he”, it is only to be pronounced “Adonai”; and the latter name too is regarded as a holy name, and is only to be pronounced in prayer.[119][120] Thus when someone wants to refer in third person to either the written or spoken Name, the term HaShem “the Name” is used;[121][122] and this handle itself can also be used in prayer.[123] The Masoretes added vowel points (niqqud) and cantillation marks to the manuscripts to indicate vowel usage and for use in ritual chanting of readings from the Bible in Jewish prayer in synagogues. To יהוה‎ they added the vowels for “Adonai” (“My Lord”), the word to use when the text was read. While “HaShem” is the most common way to reference “the Name”, the terms “HaMaqom” (lit. “The Place”, i.e. “The Omnipresent”) and “Raḥmana” (Aramaic, “Merciful”) are used in the mishna and gemara, still used in the phrases “HaMaqom y’naḥem ethḥem” (“may The Omnipresent console you”), the traditional phrase used in sitting Shiva and “Raḥmana l’tzlan” (“may the Merciful save us” i.e. “God forbid”).

      Written prohibitions
      Edit
      The written tetragrammaton,[124] as well as six other names of God, must be treated with special sanctity. They cannot be disposed of regularly, lest they be desecrated, but are usually put in long term storage or buried in Jewish cemeteries in order to retire them from use.[125] Similarly, writing the tetragrammaton (or these other names) unnecessarily is prohibited, so as to avoid having them treated disrespectfully, an action that is forbidden. To guard the sanctity of the Name, sometimes a letter is substituted by a different letter in writing (e.g. יקוק), or the letters are separated by one or more hyphens, a practice applied also to the English name “God”, which Jews commonly write as “G-d”.[126][127] Most Jewish authorities say that this practice is not obligatory for the English name.[128]

The church ⛪ has to be in unity . That’s the problem with so many different denominations. Because differences in theology. We have to be in unity . Do I believe there are 3 different Gods no . Do I believe in the deity of Christ yes . And I believe in one God we all do . I got saved watching Tbn the biggest Christian network in the world . Called Trinity broadcasting network . I was called to preach at 7 years old in a babtist church ⛪. Was raised babtist and then Into full gospel Pentecostal Church .Then I went to Trinity Chapel Church of God . Then on to Lee University Bible college. I had a class on the person of the Holy Spirit. And I studied Old and New Testament. Your argument is over the trinity . I will always believe in the trinity because the Bible says so . And Iv personally experienced each person through the ministry of the Holy Spirit . Jesus is my lord and savior . They are three in one ..Like others said . Go preach baptizing them in the name of the father the son and the Holy Spirit case closed . You are confused . I pray God reveals this to you . I don’t know how you could miss it . And why you argue about it . It’s basic theology . And there’s definitely an error in your theology . But it doesn’t matter . We all disagree on different points . Iv heard people bashing the trinity before . The Holy Spirit would never bash himself of the word of God so I don’t see your point and others on here don’t either . I will pray about it for you to have peace ✌️. There is someting fighting against unity and it’s not God . It’s the enemy that brings confusion and strife . This is the last time I will get into one of these discussions because some people never learn they want to argue scripture . We are at the end of time and people want to argue . The point is put differences aside and win this world ? for Jesus and let’s go home to heaven . ♥️

      Miller Isaac You keep on saying we are “grammar skewing” or “grammar inventing”, but you have not cited 1 single case of how we skew or invent the Greek or Hebrew grammar. Nor have you answered my question as to how much Greek or Hebrew you have studied to qualify you to make that claim. Your statements lead me to believe that you have studied 0 Greek grammar and 0 Hebrew grammar. If that is so, it disqualifies you to claim we are skewing or reinventing grammar. We are not. Further, I would ask very simply, how much English grammar have you studied? Have you had college level English grammar, advanced college level English grammar, graduate level English grammar, doctoral level English grammar, or post-doctoral level English grammar? And then exactly what grammar are we skewing? Nouns, verbs, pronominals, prepositions, sentence syntax? You don’t seem to understand basic Hebrew and Greek grammar of the Hebrew and Greek words for “name,” because you keep mis-defining them as “titles” rather than what they mean, which is character, reputation, essence, authority. Nor do you seem to understand the grammatical use of the word “one,” which you use so frequently but understand its use so poorly. The essence of God is one. Trinitarians fully understand this, and agree and are glad that we can agree on this one point together with oneness folk. We do not believe in 3 Gods, no matter how much you try to say we do, but we believe only in one God. But as I stated in an earlier post, Scripture defines our one God as multi-dimensional, manifold (Col 3:10). There is no contradiction in a manifold God who is one. The term “manifold” in Scripture makes it clear that God can be one and many at the same time. Maybe not in human reasoning, but in God’s reasoning that transcends human reasoning–yes. God says, “My thoughts are higher than your thoughts and My ways higher than your ways.” Think higher, think God’s ways, I pray.

      The doctrine of the Trinity can be clearly seen, being understood by the visible things that are made, even to His eternal power and Godhead (Rom. 1:20). What on earth was created in the image and likeness of God? Man (Gen. 1:26-28). Do God’s image and likeness consist only of moral and spiritual powers? If so, it can be concluded that man is only a moral and spiritual being. Is God bodiless? If so, we can conclude that man is also bodiless.

    The Greek word ἐκεῖνος (ekeinos) is applied to the Holy Spirit several times (John 14:26, 15:26, 16:8, 13, 14) and is a masculine personal pronoun; literally ‘He’ or ‘that one.’ Around 96% of time it refers to persons / individuals. For example in John 1:18 (the Son), 5:37 (the Father), 5:46 (Moses), the blind man who was healed (9:11), people who truly love Jesus (14:21) and many more. Mt. 27:8 and John 12:48 seem to be the only exceptions to this rule. This is due to agros (field) and logos (word) being both masculine nouns and therefore accompanied by the masculine, ekeinos.

    What’s also interesting is the fact that pneuma (Spirit) is neuter in the Greek and yet John chooses to call the Spirit ekeinos instead of its neuter equivalent ekeino (e.g. Mt. 24:43). Yet in John 16, ‘to pneuma’ (v.13) is so much closer to ekeinos than the masculine parakleetos in v.7 and in John 14:26 and 15:26 ‘to pneuma tees aleetheias’ (the Spirit of Truth) is the closest antecedent to ekeinos rather than parakleetos. Seemingly John is deliberately emphasizing the distinct personality of the Spirit

    Proofs that Jesus Is Not the Father:
    21. The Father was in heaven all the time that Jesus was on earth (Mt. 5:16,48).
    22. Christ now sits at the right hand of the Father (see note 9, above).
    23. Jesus said He would confess men “before My Father,” proving He is not the Father (Mt. 10:32; Rev. 3:5).
    24. Jesus always prayed to the Father as a separate Person (Mt. 11:25; Jn. 17).

      Ekeinos is applied to the masculine noun parakletos, not the neuter noun pneuma.

      In Greek grammar nouns and pronouns agree in case, number and gender..

      Church is called a she or her. Church is not a female person

    2. Names of God prove plurality of persons.(Gen. 3:5; Ex. 22:28; 1Sam. 4:8; Dan. 2:11; 4:6-9; 5:11,14; etc.).

    3. Plural pronouns are used of God, proving plurality of persons (Gen. 1:26; 3:22; 11:7; Isa. 6:8; Jn. 14:23; 17:11,22-23).

    4. First, second, and third personal pronouns are used hundreds of times in Scripture, referring to one, two, and three persons of the Godhead in the same sense they are used of men. Sometimes the different members of the Deity use them to and of one another in the same sense man uses them. In Jn. 17 alone Jesus uses them 162 Times in speaking to and of His Father (cp. Jn. 14:16-17,26; 15:26; 16:7-15). Sometimes singular pronouns are used of the whole Godhead of three members as a unity (Ex. 20:3; Isa. 44:6,8; 45:5,21; 46:9; Hos. 13:4), just like the whole church as a unit is spoken of as a man and “he” (Eph. 2:14-15; 4:13; 5:25-27; 2Th. 2:7-8).

    5. “Man is become as one of us” proves plurality of persons (Gen. 3:22).

      Paul L. King exactly! Thank you for your help!

      Is the word trinity in the Bible? No.
      Does the Bible say that there are three persons in the Godhead? No.
      Does the Bible speak of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost? Yes.
      Do these titles as used in Matthew 28:19 mean that there are three separate and distinct persons in the Godhead? No, they refer to three offices, roles, or relationship to humanity.
      Does the Bible use the word three in reference to God? Only one verse in the entire Bible does so-1 John 5:7. It speaks of the Father, the Word (instead of Son), and the Holy Ghost, and it concludes by saying, “These three are one.”
      Does the Bible use the word one in reference to God? Yes, many times. For example, see Zechariah 14:9; Malachi 2:10; Matthew 23:9; Mark 12:29, 32; John 8:41; 10:30; Romans 3:30; 1 Corinthians 8:4; Galatians 3:20; 1 Timothy 2:5; James 2:19.

      Has the Christian only one Heavenly Father? Yes. Matthew 23:9.
      Then why did Jesus say to Philip, “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father” (John 14:39)?Because Jesus is the express image of God’s person. Hebrews 1:3. The Greek word forpersonin this verse literally means “substance.”
      Does the Bible say that there are two persons in the Godhead? No.
      Does the Bible say that all the Godhead is revealed in one person? Yes, in Jesus Christ. 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:19; 2:9; Hebrews 1:3.
      Is the mystery of the Deity hidden from some people? Yes. Luke 10:21-22.
      Who is the Father? The Father is the one God, particularly as revealed in parental relationship to humanity. Deuteronomy 32:6; Malachi 2:10.
      Where was God the Father while Jesus was on earth? The Father was in Christ. John 14:10; 2 Corinthians 5:19. He was also in heaven, for God is omnipresent.
      Did the prophet Isaiah say that Jesus would be the Father? Yes. Isaiah 9:6; 63:16.
      When God said, “Let us make man in our image” (Genesis 1:26), was He speaking to another person in the Godhead? No. Isaiah 44:24; Malachi 2:10.
      How many of God’s qualities were in Christ? All. Colossians 2:9.
      How may we see the God who sent Jesus into the world? By seeing Jesus. John 12:44-45; 14:9.
      Does the Bible say that Jesus is the Almighty? Yes. Revelation 1:8
      Whom do some designate as the first person in the trinity? God the Father.
      Whom do some designate as the last person in the trinity? The Holy Ghost. But Jesus said that He was the first and last. Revelation 1:17-18
      How many persons did John see sitting on the throne in heaven? One. Revelation 4:2.
      If Jesus is the first and the last, why did God say in Isaiah 44:6 that He was the first and the last? Because Jesus is the God of the Old Testament incarnate.
      Did Jesus tell Satan that God alone should be worshipped? Yes. Matthew 4:10
      Does the devil believe in more than one God? No. James 2:19.
      Does the Bible say that God, who is the Word, was made flesh? Yes John 1:1, 14.
      For what purpose was God manifested in the flesh? To save sinners. Hebrews 2:9, 14.
      Was Jesus God manifested in the flesh? Yes. 1 Timothy 3:16.
      Could Jesus have been on earth and in heaven at the same time? Yes. John 3:13.
      Does the Bible say that there is but one Lord? Yes. Isaiah 45:18; Ephesians 4:5.
      Does the Bible say that Christ is the Lord? Yes. Luke 2:11.
      Does the Bible say that the Lord is God? Yes. I kings 18:39; Zechariah 14:5; Acts 2:39; Revelation 19:1.
      How could the church belong to Jesus (Matthew 16:18) and yet be the church of God (1 Corinthians 10:32)? Because Jesus is God in the flesh.
      Will God give His glory to another? No. Isaiah 42:8.
      Was there a God formed before Jehovah, or will there be one formed after? No. Isaiah 43:10.
      What is one thing that God does not know? Another God. Isaiah 44:8.
      What is one thing that God Cannot do? Lie. Titus 1:2.
      How many Gods should we know? Only one. Hosea 13:4.
      How many names has the Lord? One. Zechariah 14:9.
      Is it good to think upon the name of the Lord? Yes. Malachi 3:16.
      Does the Bible say that God alone treads upon the waves of the sea? Yes. Job 9:8
      Why, then, was Jesus able to walk upon the Sea of Galilee (Matthew 14:25)? Because He is God the Creator. Colossians 1:16.
      Is God the only one who can forgive sin? Yes. Isiah 43:25; Mark 2:7.
      Why, then, could Jesus forgive sin in Mark 2:5-11? Because He is God the Savior.
      Is Jesus the true God? Yes. 1 John 5:20.
      If God and the Holy Ghost are two separate persons, which was the Father of Christ?Matthew 1:20 says that the Holy Ghost was the Father, while Romans 15:6, 2 Corinthians 11:31, and Ephesians 1:3 say that God was the Father. There is no contradiction when we realize that God the Father and the Holy Ghost are one and the same Spirit. Matthew 10:20; Ephesians 4:4; 1 Corinthians 3:16.
      When Paul asked the Lord who He was, what was the answer? “I am Jesus.” Acts 9:5.
      When Stephen was dying, did he call God Jesus? Yes. Acts 7:59.
      Did Thomas ever call Jesus God? Yes. John 20:28.
      How could Jesus be the Savior, when God the Father said in Isaiah 43:11, “Beside me there is no Savior?” Because “God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself.” 2 Corinthians 5:19.
      Does the Bible say that Jesus was God with us? Yes. Matthew 1:23.
      Did Jesus ever say, “I and my Father are one?” Yes. John 10:30.
      Can it be proved scripturally that Jesus and the Father are one in the same sense that husband and wife are one? No. The Godhead was never compared to the relationship of a husband and wife. Jesus identified Himself with the Father in a way that husband and wife cannot be identified with each other. John 14:9-11.
      Does the Bible say that there is only one wise God? Yes. Jude 25.
      Does the Bible call the Holy Ghost a second or third person in the Godhead? No. The Holy Ghost is the one Spirit of God, the one God Himself at work in our lives. John 4:24; 1 Corinthians 3:16-17; 6:19; 12:13.
      Can Trinitarians show that three divine persons were present when Jesus was baptized by John? Absolutely not. The one, omnipresent God used three simultaneous manifestations. Only one divine person was present–Jesus Christ the Lord.
      Then what were the other two of whom Trinitarians speak? One was a voice from heaven; the other was the Spirit of God in the form of a dove. Matthew 3:16-17.
      What did the voice say at Jesus’ baptism? “Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” Mark 1:11. As the Son of God, Jesus was the one God incarnate.
      Does the Bible say that God shed His blood and that God laid down His life for us? Yes. Acts 20:28; 1 John 3:16. God was able to do this because He had taken upon Himself a human body.
      The Bible says that God is coming back with all his saints (Zechariah 14:5) and also that Jesus is coming back with all his saints (1 Thessalonians 3:13). Are two coming back? No. Only one is coming back–our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ. Titus 2:13.

It was only after the book of acts church was murdered and replaced with a counterfeit government run chuch that anyone had any idea of anything triunity at all.

The Greek word for person in this verse literally means “substance.” The KJV uses the “person,” but this is a mistranslation of the Greek term “hypostasis,” as you point out the real meaning is “substance” or “essence.” Substance or essence does not refer to personality. The term before it, “express image” is the Greek word “charakter,” which again is what the “name” of God means.

    5. “Man is become as one of us” proves plurality of persons (Gen. 3:22).

    6. Two and three Persons called God have been seen by the same men at the same time and places as being separate persons (Dan. 7:9-14; Mt. 3:16-17; Jn. 1:31-34; Acts 7:54-60; Rev. 6:16; 7:9-17; 21:22; 22:3).

    7. Two Lords are mentioned in Gen. 19:24; one on earth and one in heaven.

    8. Two Persons are referred to in the Old Testament See Ps. 8:5-6 with Heb. 2:5-18; Ps. 16:8-10 with Acts 2:25-36; Ps. 22:1-22 with Mt. 27:35,39-43,45-46; Heb. 9:14; 10:5-12; Ps. 40:6-10 with Heb. 10:5-7; and Ps. 45:6-7 with Heb. 1:8-9.

    9. Two Lords are mentioned sitting side by side (Ps. 110:1,5; Mt. 22:44; 26:64; Acts 2:33-34; 7:54-56; Rom. 8:34; Eph. 1:20; Col. 3:1; Heb. 1:3,13; 8:1; 10:12; 12:2; 1Pet. 3:22; Rev. 22:3).

    10. Two Persons are mentioned and required in order to understand the plain language of Ps. 2; 9:19; 132:17; Prov. 30:4; Isa. 4:2; 10:16-17; 28:16; 49:1-10; 50:4-11; 52:13 – Isa. 53:12; 62:11; Mic. 5:1-5; Jer. 23:4-8; 33:14-26; Zech. 3:8-10; 6:12-13.

      they aren’t proofs. it’s more the same grammar reinventing that if were true would make the Bible invalid. all you can do is copy and paste the same false doctrine and ignore all the Bible i quote.

      if this reinventing of grammar is true then the Bible/ Jesus a liar and if it were true there would have been at least one time in the Bible somone said 3 persons or triune but you have to make up grammar false doctrine that if it’s the case i can use it to say there’s any number of Gods and have to ignore most of the Bible.

      you just need this false doctrine to justify the trinitarian church killing millions of people in the name of the trinity not Jesus.

      the counterfeit chuch came up with many other false pantheistic doctrines that were mostly forgotten as non biblical but you just need to run this one into the ground to help confuse millions more and kill more faith.

      Miller Isaac did you even read them? Why arent you answering any of them? Should we keep on going to 89? or you gave up at the first couple of verses I quoted?

      i showed you screen shots and everything. it’s the same blindness over and over as you ignore the Bible.

      please show one example in the bible of somone being baptized in the titles! i will send $10000 rn! oh never happens because the apostles weren’t confused ??‍♂️ then maybe we should be like them and Jesus who knows his only name and spirit and baptism.

      Miller Isaac How many courses and years of Greek and Hebrew have you taken and in what schools to be able to say with authority that we are engaging in the “reinventing of grammar”?

      just one verse that’s all or one time explain the Godhead without adding words to describe God that jesus or he apostles never used or one example of titles baptism. there are none and it doesn’t take years of greek or hebrew to count to 0 or 1 especially not when Jesus says over and over the opposite.

    Ephesians 4:5-6 King James Version (KJV)

    5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

    6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

      Miller Isaac, Here is the Trinity in the very verses you cite (except you left out verse 4): “Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one SPIRIT, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One LORD [Jesus Christ the Son], one faith, one baptism, One God and FATHER of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.”–Ephesians 4:3-6, KJV. 1 Spirit X 1 Lord (the Son) x 1 Father = 3-in-1.

      Paul L. King you literally have to insert things not there and ignore things you don’t like to make that work. One spirit one name. The bible never says otherwise.

      Miller Isaac I am not inserting anything, only explaining what the New Testament says elsewhere. “Lord” throughout the New Testament refers to Jesus Christ the Son of God/God the Son. You keep misunderstanding the word “name.” It does not mean “title” as you claim, but to the Hebrew people it means “character, reputation, authority.”

    Jeremy Rice every time it says LORD like this in all caps. Its the unknown name of God before Jesus came. It’s the tetragrammaton and please learn your theology before you keep misusing it as tripantheism.

    Jeremy Rice you can’t demand terminology any more than a Canadian be a law breaker for freedom of pronoun use. I said I’m q follower of Christ and reborn but no one can show me an example of titles baptism in scripture otlr person or God. Say whatever you want but to twist Jesus words into persons when he says one God… thats simply contradictory.

      Let me explain an aspect to many Oneness folks, Troy. You and I look at all of his verses and think to ourselves, “yep, I believe that verse and it fits with my Trinitarian beliefs. ” However, most Oneness folks can accept that we believe in one God. A supernatural God, that is not subject to the same laws of nature that men are bound to. They want to limit God to something that fits in their brain. How does an infinite, omnipresent, omnipotent god fit into our finite brains.
