Trinity Of God

The Trinity of God is fundamentally a doctrine to the Christian faith. Belief or disbelief in the Trinity would mark orthodoxy from unorthodoxy. Us as humans, can’t fathom the Trinity, nor can logic explain it, and even though the word is not found in the Scriptures, the doctrine is taught.

The term Trinity emphasizes on the three persons but not the unity within the Trinity. The German word Dreienigkeit (“three-oneness”) express the concept further. The definition of the Trinity must include the distinctness and equality of the three persons within the Trinity as well as the unity within the Trinity. The Triunity may better express it. The Trinity is composed of three united persons without separate existence-so completely united as to form one God. The divine nature subsists in three distinctions- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

God is one in regard to essence. The essential oneness is shown in Deuteronomy 6:4, “Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, The Lord is one! It all means that all three Persons possess the summation of the divine attributes but yet the essence of God is undivided.

God is three with respect to Person. It emphasizes not only the manifestation but also and individual personality. Each has the same essence as God, and each possess the fullness of God. In God there are no three individuals alongside of, and separate from, one another, but only personal self-distinctions within the Divine essence.

The three Persons have distinct relationships. The Father is not begotten nor does He proceed from any person; the Son is eternally begotten from the Father (John 1:18; 3:16, 18; 1 John 4:9). The Holy Spirit eternally proceeds from the Father and the Son (John 14:26; 16:7).

The three Persons are equal in authority. The Father is recognized as authoritative and supreme (1 Cor. 8:6); the Son is also recognized as equal to the Father in every aspect (John 5:21-23); the Spirit is likewise recognized as equal to the Father and the Son.

  1. Love this teaching….Oddly enough just yesterday I was thinking about this and here you are with a beautiful truth filled post explaining it perfectly! As Jesus said I and my Father are one and the Holy Spirit allows us to be a part of this Holy family of God who guides and directs us in His will. Blessings.

  2. Nice! This year I fasted 21 days at the beginning of the year, and then heard someone say they also fast three days for each consecutive month of the year. I felt led to do that too, and I’m doing it on the Trinity. One day for the Father, one day for Jesus, and one day for Holy Spirit.

  4. The only problem is that this flat out contradicts scripture at Luke1:32 the God and Father of Jesus is called the most high obviously this would be impossible if the trinity were true. At John 5:41kjv we read” I Receive not honor from men” that is an odd thing for one who thinks himself the most high or part thereof say is it not?

    1. If you are denying the Trinity, then you must recheck your information. No need to debate between whether the Trinity is true or not. Many individuals have been against the truth of the Trinity. You are free to believe what you must. Have a great day!
