About This Blog...
From Genesis to Revelation there are references to the trinitarian nature of God. God is one as clearly stated in Deuteronomy 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one". Jesus confirmed the truth of this scripture in Mark 12:29 "The most important one," answered Jesus, "is this: 'Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one".The bible presents God, who is one, as Father, Son and Holy Spirit - Three in one.

Genesis 1:26 "Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness..." The 'us' and 'our' in this verse are not references to God and His angels, as man is not made in the image of angels! It is a reference to the triune God: Father, Son and Spirit.
The prophecy in Isaiah chapter 9 and verse 6 about the Incarnation also illustrates the trinitarian nature of God. "For to us a child is born, to us a Son is given, and the government will be on His shoulders. And He will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace". (N.I.V.) There is no comma between 'Wonderful' and 'Counsellor' in several modern translations.
"Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God" is a reference to the Holy Spirit. "Everlasting Father" The Father. "Prince of Peace" Jesus the Son. "For in Christ all the fulness of the Deity lives in bodily form" (Colossians 2:9).
1 Corinthians 13:13 "And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love" The 'love' chapter also illustrates the trinitarian nature of God. "God is love" (1 John 4:8;16) "Christ is our hope" (1 Timothy 1:1) And faith is a gift of the Spirit (Ephesians 2:8; Galatians 5:22).

The apostle John clearly saw the trinitarian nature of God. Here are some relevant verses: “And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Counsellor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth….But  the Counsellor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you” (John 14:16-17 & 26). “When the Counsellor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, He will testify about Me” (John 15:26).“All that belongs to the Father is Mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is Mine and make it known to you” (John 16:15). “We know that we live in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son to be the Savior of the world” (1 John 4:13-14). Also in Revelation chapter 14, verses 1 and 13 refers to the triune God: Father, Son and Spirit.
"Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with Him 144,000 who had His name and His Father's name written on their foreheads...(verse 13) Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on." "Yes" says the Spirit, "they will rest from their labour, for their deeds will follow them." (N.I.V)
John 1:29 "The next day John saw Jesus coming towards him and said, Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world." For more information to show that the bible, particularly the New Testament, is a trinitarian book please click on this link:
