PART TWO, DOCTRINE CONCERNING

"THE TRINITARIAN GODHEAD" . . .,

"THE THREE IN ONE."

===============================

"THE TRINITY IN THE OLD TESTAMENT". . .

( 1 ). Commentary . . . GOD Himself was the author of the entire Bible, and from the very beginning the various scribes who the LORD used to declare His Word to mankind is not their words, because in their own knowledge and wisdom they could not possibly know the trials and tribulations that would come upon JEHOVAH GOD'S people and how GOD would deliver them from the clutches of Satan.

==============================

( 2 ). Scripture: "For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of GOD spoke as they were moved by the HOLY SPIRIT, { 2- Peter 1:21 },"

==============================

( 3 ). The above { V. 21 } paraphrased below in commentary form . . .

"For no prophecy or any other portion of the Scriptures ever originated 'because some man willed [ it to be so' ] - none of it came by human impulse - 'but as men spoke from GOD who were borne along [ moved and impelled ] by GOD the HOLY SPIRIT' ]."

============

DOCTRINE CONCERNING "THE TRINITARIAN GODHEAD" . . ., "THE THREE IN ONE."

( 4 ). Commentary . . . Notice the words "they were moved" this means they were literally borne along. this gives the understanding of a dual authorship of GOD'S Word - The HOLY SPIRIT guiding and guarding the scribe who was involved in the actual writing process.

( 5 ). This is one of the most important passages of the Scripture in the whole Bible, because it shows us that the Bible is not a man-inspired book. Every word of it came from GOD through men who were guided and kept from error in their writings by GOD The HOLY SPIRIT Himself.

( 6 ). The O.T. absolutely does teach the "TRINITY!" Another verse of Scripture that is believed to be one of the best and greatest doctrinal statement in the O.T. is given as follows . . .

==============================

( 7 ). { V. 4 } Scripture: Hear, O Israel: The LORD Our GOD Is 'ONE LORD,

( 8 ). { V. 5 }: "And you shall love the LORD your GOD with all your 'heart, and with all your soul, and with all your might, { Deuteronomy 6:4-5 }."

==============================

( 9 ). The above { Vs. 4-5 } paraphrased below in commentary form . . .

( 10 ). { 4 }: "Hear, O Israel: the LORD 'our [ plural' ] GOD is 'ONE GOD, [ ELOHIM' The only LORD ]." Read { Titus 2:13 }!

( 11 ). { 5 }: "And you shall love the LORD your GOD with all your 'heart [ mind' intellect ], and with 'all your [ entire being ]: soul [ i.e., life' ], and with all your 'might [ strength' ],

============

( 12 ). Commentary ... The word "One" is 'ECHOD,' the same word which is used back in { Genesis 2:24 } when GOD said concerning Adam and Eve ..., "And they shall be one flesh." "Two persons: one individual." The LORD JESUS called this the first and greatest commandment and added to it the phrase "With all your mind: and again in the New Testament . . .

==============================

( 13 ). Scripture: "And you shall love the LORD your GOD with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength: this is the first commandment, { Mark 12:30 }."

==============================

( 14 ). Commentary . . . In that mysterious relationship of marriage two people are considered as one, which is the same today. They shall be one flesh, though two, "two in one."

( 15 ). Again in { Deuteronomy 6:4 }, Hear O Israel: ELOHIM our plural GOD, our "TRINITY," with His tri-personality ... "is one GOD." The mysterious One, like Adam and Eve consisting of one flesh, the Three Persons in the GODHEAD also consist as one.

( 16 ). { V. 4 } begins the celebrated Shema [ from the first word, "hear" ], which became Judaism's basic confession of faith. According to rabbinic tradition, the Shema originally consisted only of the above { V. 4 }, but was later expanded to include { Vs. 5-9, - 11:13-21, - & - Numbers 15: 37-41 }.

( 17 ). According to rabbinical law, it was to be recited morning and night { i.e., V. 7 }. . . . { V. 4 } is subject to various translations, though the statement is likely stressing the uniqueness of YAHWEH and should be translated, "The LORD is our GOD, the LORD alone."

( 18 ). A secondary emphasis, His indivisibility, is apparent in most English translations. The LORD'S uniqueness precludes the worship of any other god which naturally would be a false god or gods, and demands a total love commitment to the GOD of our Bible { V. 5 }.

( 19 ). All this is a most wonderful truth, and is unfathomable by human reason. Scripture, you see, teaches the TRINITY. The O.T. repeatedly declares the plurality of GOD. If we turn back to the first chapter of Genesis, we again find where the LORD said . . .

==============================

( 20 ). { V. 26 } Scripture: "And GOD said, Let "US make men 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 creeps upon the earth.

( 21 ). { V. 27 }: So GOD created man in His Own image, in the image of GOD created He him; male and female created He them, { Genesis 1:26- 27 }."

==============================

( 22 ). The above { Vs. 26-27 } paraphrased below in commentary form:

( 23 ). { 26 } Scripture: "And GOD said, Let "Us" [ GOD THE FATHER, GOD THE SON, and GOD THE HOLY SPIRIT' ] make men in "OUR image, [ i.e., OUR likeness" ]: and let 'them [ mankind' ] have 'dominion [ complete authority' ] over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and 'over [ all ] the cattle [ and other beast' ], over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. Read { Hebrews 11:3; - 1:2; - & - Psalm 104:30.}"

( 24 ). { 27 }: So GOD created man in His own image, in the image [ and likeness ] of GOD created He him; male and female He created them, { Genesis 1:26-27 }." Read { Colossians 3:9-10; - & - James 3:8 - 9. }

============

( 25 ). Commentary . . . Notice that ( GOD said, "Let US" make man in "OUR IMAGE )." It is plural. Man 'is ( 1 ): Body', '( 2): Soul [ life' ], and '( 3 ): spirit, [ a Trinity' ].: At the tower of Babel . . ., GOD stated ...

==============================

( 26 ). { V. 7 } Scripture: "Go to, let US go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

( 27 ). { V. 8 }: So the LORD scattered them abroad from there upon the face of the earth: and they left off to build the city, { Genesis 11:7- 8 }."

==============================

( 28 ). The above { Vs. 7-8 } paraphrased below in commentary form."

( 29 ). { 7 } "Go to, [ i.e., Come' ], let "US [ The Triune GODHEAD" ] go down, and there 'confound [ mix up, and confuse' ] their language, that they may not understand one another's speech.

( 30 ). { 8 }: So the "LORD" scattered them abroad 'from [ that place' ] there upon the face of the earth; and they gave up building the city, and the tower of Babel, { Genesis 11:7-8 }."

============

( 31 ). Commentary ... It seems that from the creation of Adam and Eve that there was only one language? Therefore, By confusing the language into many different languages that followed . . ., GOD established the parent languages of the earth from which other languages and dialects developed ( today, a total of more than 3,000 ). The result of this confusion was the scattering of mankind into many nations.

( 32 ). We see that the LORD scattered them, but He said, "[ LET US GO DOWN ]." The "TRINITY" came down, [ BUT HE The TRINITARIAN GODHEAD IS ONE GOD ].

==============================

( 33 ). Scripture: "Also I heard the voice of the LORD, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for "US?" Then said I, "Here am I; send me, { Isaiah 6:8 }." [ A plural pronoun used by one JEHOVAH. ] Read { Revelation 4:8 }.

==============================

( 34 ). Commentary ... The words "FOR US," GOD is seen as a KING in the council chamber. This phrase certainly allows for the fuller N.T. revelation of the "TRINITY."

==============================

( 35 ). { V. 8 } Scripture: "And The four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY, which was, and is, and is to come.

( 36 ). { V. 9 }: And when those beast give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, Who lives for ever and ever, { Revelation 4:8-9 }."

==============================

( 37 }. The above { Vs. 8-9 } paraphrased below in commentary form ...

( 38 ). { 8 } Scripture: "And 'The four beasts [ literally four living creatures who are Seraphim's with ] each having six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within': and they 'rested not day and night', saying, Holy, holy, holy, LORD GOD ALMIGHTY . . .,

============

{ 1 }: which was, [ i.e., before He took on a human body through Mary].

============

{ 2 }: and is, [ i.e., after IMMANUEL took on the human body of flesh ].

============

{ 3 }: and is to come. [ Back to this Earth as KING OF KING and LORD OF LORD'S: "THE THREE IN ONE." ] Read { Isaiah 6:1-3; - & - Revelation 4:8. }

============

( 39 ): { 9 }: And when those beast give glory and honour and thanks to Him that sat on the throne, Who lives for ever and ever, { Revelation 4:8-9 }."

============

( 40 ). Before this, when Isaiah had gone into the Temple, he had heard the Seraphim saying, "Holy, Holy, Holy" . . . not twice, not four times, but three times. It was a praise to the TRIUNE GOD. "Holy is GOD the FATHER", "Holy is GOD the SON", - "Holy is GOD the HOLY SPIRIT." "The Three In ONE."

( 41 ). Again in { Ecclesiastes 12:1 }, where we read the familiar words, "( Remember now your Creator in the days of your youth )." The word Creator is "BOREACHO" which means CREATORS, plural for "ELOHIM" - "THREE Persons of the GOD- HEAD in ONE GOD."

( 42 ). "( Remember now your CREATORS )," your "TRINITY"... for the "TRINITY" is involved in creation, as you well know. We are told that the TRIUNE GOD was the CREATOR, "[ In the beginning GOD created ]." ... Both { John 1:3 - & - Colossians 1:16 } tell us that the LORD JESUS was the CREATOR! Also we are told that the HOLY SPIRIT was the CREATOR! . . .

==============================

( 43 ). Scripture: " ... The SPIRIT of GOD moved upon the face of the waters, { Genesis 1:2 }."

==============================

( 44 ). Commentary ... Therefore, it is evident that the "TRINITY" was all involved in the Creation just as it is involved in redemption.

( 45 ). In the O.T, Israel witnessed to a polytheistic world ... which was a civilization that worshipped many false gods. Israel's mission was to propagate the doctrine of GOD'S WORD among the heathen nations, of that which was to be applied to the worship of the "One True GODHEAD."

( 46 ). That was the mission of Israel in the ancient world. The mission of the BODY OF CHRIST in this present Grace Dispensation, isn't to bring the "Gospel of the Mystery of the Grace of GOD" to a world given completely over to 'polytheism - [ the worship of many false gods' ].

( 47 ). Neither are we to teach an atheistic religion to lost humanity, 'which pertains to [ the worship of no god' ]. But, we are to preach and teach our civilization the doctrine of that which concerns the TRINITARIAN GOD of the Bible and how to get people "Saved!"

( 48 ). The fact is, there is a devilish doctrine being taught during this age which is called the Unitarian doctrine: that GOD exists only in one person, and this is one of the most hellish doctrines of heresy that has injured America and the world more than anything else during this age.

( 49 ). It is a false teaching that has softened and weakened this great country of ours. All SAINTS of GOD referring to all of GOD'S born again Children "must be" well aware that there is only "ONE GOD" but, all are not aware that there are three Personages in the GODHEAD, Not just one!

OUR "TRINITARIAN GOD" CONTINUED. . .
