TRINITY OF THE GODHEAD (2)
There are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost.
(Continued from the first part…)
In the Godhead of the Divinity, are three distinctive Persons. No scriptural tenability suffers a fourth Member. For two good reasons Jehovah must assume plurality. Of a cardinal importance in HIS plurality is the incongruity of having intelligent entities of creationism experiencing pluralism before being noticed in the Creator. “And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence” [Colossians 1:18]. It is of a very scriptural convenience to ascribe Christ’s nature to the Father’s. “And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them;” asseverates Jesus in John 17:10. How can God the Father enter into a community of ownership with another when Scripture does asseverates, “I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images” [Isa 42:8]?
The LORD God knew that He would create many angelic beings. If ten angels should say to three angels, “We love you,” the numerical strength of the ‘we’ or that of ‘you’ is more than a solitary angel. Even on the sixth day of Adamic formation it was a couple, more than one, which had always experienced the fellowship with an Entity called the LORD God every cool of the evening. Of cruciality of noteworthiness is the facticity that God’s created intelligent beings would have to use the plurality of ‘we,’ ‘us,’ ‘you,’ ‘they’ and ‘them’ experientially before God, thereby making God to learn of this reality from the lives of His created ones. This would not make His Almighty sense!
The grace of the Jesus Christ, the love of God, the communion of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
God should be able to point at two of Himself and also make an address as Plural Being. Christ, holding hands and side by side with another One, let us say, the Holy Spirit, will say, “You sit on the throne and We will go down to the earth,” and each of the ‘We’ is God Eternal. Christ points at the Father and the Holy Spirit and says, “They are My Fellows.” While the chief reason is of the Divinity, the second reason concerns human predicament of the soulish man.
His kerygma, when it finds its rejuvenation into the porosity of selected hearts, will no doubt engender a soteriological stance in them, ergo, needing His saving grace. It must require a sinlessness of nature to salvage creatures fallen into the quagmire of inquiry. An angel cannot do it. An angelic soteriologic emancipation lays a foundation for angelic worship: quite an egregious anomaly of scripture!
HE IS THE ALPHA AND OMEGA
The LORD God will remain eternally spotless spiritually. He alone, therefore, must show His unprecedented loving kindness. He cannot, as the eternally seated One on the throne (Eternal Judge), come down to save mankind. The invisibility of the Holy Spirit would not attempt it. This leaves the seen One among the Three: the Second Member, Jesus Christ. HE is the Jehovah of legality. There is no way, according to the Scripture of theology, that any man would ever be jurisprudentially redeemed into God’s eternal loving arms, as far as adjudication is concerned, if He were just One Entity. Another reason why Christ must wear the toga of corporeality is that if One of the Members does not, of necessity, assume the representative capacity of Sonship, none can ever enter the filial relationship of “Abba Father” with the Creator. That in all things He might have the preeminence. Amen.
Trinitarian proofs abound.
The very first sentence of the entire Bible proves the veracity of the doctrine of Trinity. “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” [Genesis 1:1]. Four being the number of creation: for on day 4 God created the lights -of illumination of Him-, the fourth word is ‘God.’ ‘Elôhı̂ym (el-o-heem’) is the Hebrew for ‘God,’ meaning ‘God, judge or strong one, in the plural.’ In the second verse “…And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters;” introduces the Third Member of the Godhead. A diligent perusal of the scriptures will reveal the ‘light’ of verse three to be the true Light of John 1:3, ‘made flesh’ in John 1:14 because He, in the heavenly assizes, had carried out the emptying of Himself in the great kenoo or kenosis of Philippians 2:7. So, when one reads the biblical account of “And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” (Genesis 1:26), it is too obvious that He could not have addressed angels, for scriptural obviousness, and that the Ones He addressed were Christ and the Holy Ghost. Amen.
