5-THE TRINITY OF GOD; THE TRINITY OF SATAN

1-INTRODUCTION

    The Godhead consists of three distinct Persons, yet these three are one. What does this mean?  
  
It is written: I Jn 5:7-FOR THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR RECORD IN HEAVEN, THE FATHER, THE WORD, AND THE HOLY GHOST: AND THESE THREE ARE ONE.
  
Jn 10:30-I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.

    There are some that teach there are not three Persons of the Trinity (of the Godhead). These people can usually be identified because they do not baptize in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Rather they baptize people in the name of Jesus Christ. In the United States, they sometimes go under the name of "the United Pentecostals."  Beware of this false doctrine.

2-REV 5:6-7

    Rev 5:6 AND I BEHELD, AND, LO, IN THE MIDST (or center) OF THE THRONE AND OF THE FOUR BEASTS (or four living beings), AND IN THE MIDST (or circle) OF THE ELDERS, STOOD A LAMB (which is Jesus) AS IT HAD BEEN SLAIN, (or slaughtered) HAVING SEVEN HORNS AND SEVEN EYES, WHICH ARE THE SEVEN SPIRITS (or sevenfold) OF GOD SENT FORTH INTO ALL THE EARTH.
    5:7 AND HE
(which is Jesus) CAME AND TOOK THE BOOK (or scroll) OUT OF THE RIGHT HAND OF HIM (which is the Father) THAT SAT UPON THE THRONE.
    5:6
. AND I BEHELD, AND, LO, IN THE MIDST (or center) OF THE THRONE AND OF THE FOUR BEASTS (or four living beings), AND IN THE MIDST (or circle) OF THE ELDERS. It might be noted that Jesus is in the "center" of the throne, and in the "circle" of the elders (the redeemed). STOOD A LAMB. Jesus is the LAMB OF GOD-Jn 1:29. Today, Jesus is sitting, but in that day, He will be standing. Jesus HAD BEEN SLAIN, (or slaughtered). Jesus had been crucified, but now was alive. He rose from the dead. Jesus, the Lamb, is illustrated as HAVING SEVEN HORNS. This represents Deity, authority-ref Dan 7:24, and complete omnipotent power. Horns can represent strength-ref 1 Ki 22:11.

    He is also shown to have SEVEN EYES. This shows that His knowledge and wisdom and seeing all things is complete-ref Zech 3:9; 4:10. He knows all things. These ARE THE SEVEN SPIRITS (or sevenfold Spirit) OF GOD. Jesus has been pictured as a lamb, but He shall return as a lion. The sevenfold Spirit of God is SENT FORTH INTO ALL THE EARTH.
   
5:7. AND (1) HE (Jesus) CAME AND TOOK THE BOOK (or scroll) OUT OF THE RIGHT HAND OF (2) HIM (God the Father) THAT SAT UPON THE THRONE. Only God could give it. Only Jesus could take it. As already mentioned, this appears to be some form of a title deed.
  
There are some that teach a false doctrine that there are not three Persons of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In this verse, clearly Jesus is seen as a separate Person from the Father. Jesus comes and takes the scroll out of the right hand of the Father, Who is setting on the throne. In addition, the Spirit of God is portrayed as being a separate Person as He is sent forth into all the earth.

3-THE TRINITY

    It is written, FOR THERE ARE THREE THAT BEAR RECORD IN HEAVEN,
  
THE FATHER,
  
THE WORD,
  
AND THE HOLY GHOST:
  
AND THESE THREE ARE ONE-1 Jn 5:7. There are three separate Persons of the Trinity. These three are illustrated here.

   1. God, the Father.
  
2. God, the Son, which is Jesus. THE WORD is Jesus. It is written, HIS NAME (Jesus) IS CALLED THE WORD OF GOD-Rev 19:13. Also it is written, IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD (Jesus), AND THE WORD (Jesus) WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD (Jesus) WAS GOD. Note, Jesus is the Word and He is God. AND THE WORD (Jesus) WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US-Jn 1:1,14.
  
3. God, the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit.

    This is further illustrated, as it is written, GO YE THEREFORE, AND TEACH ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF (1) THE FATHER, AND OF (2) THE SON, AND OF (3) THE HOLY GHOST: Once again, we have the Trinity. It did not say FATHER, SON, AND HOLY GHOST as of one, but "AND OF" as of three separate Persons-ref Mt 28:19.

    THE (1) SPIRIT OF THE (2) LORD GOD IS UPON (3) ME;-Isa 61:1. Again, we note that there are three separate Persons.

    FROM THE BEGINNING; FROM THE TIME THAT IT WAS, THERE (1) AM I: AND NOW THE (2) LORD GOD, AND HIS (3) SPIRIT, HATH SENT (1) ME-Isa 48:16. Again we note that there are three separate Persons.

    BEHOLD MY SERVANT, WHOM I UPHOLD; MINE ELECT, IN WHOM MY SOUL DELIGHTETH; I (1) HAVE PUT (2) MY SPIRIT UPON (3) HIM: HE SHALL BRING FORTH JUDGMENT TO THE GENTILES-Isa 42:1. Again we note that there are three separate Persons.

    AND THERE SHALL COME FORTH A ROD OUT OF THE STEM OF JESSE, AND A BRANCH SHALL GROW OUT OF HIS ROOTS: AND THE (1) SPIRIT OF THE (2) LORD SHALL REST UPON (3) HIM-Isa 11:1,2. Again we see the three Persons of the Trinity.

    AND THE EARTH WAS WITHOUT FORM, AND VOID; AND DARKNESS WAS UPON THE FACE OF THE DEEP. AND THE (1) SPIRIT OF (2) GOD MOVED UPON THE FACE OF THE WATERS-Gen 1:2. Here we note two Persons of the Trinity.

    Because of the three Persons of the Trinity, we can now understand why God uses the word "Us" in the following verses.
  
Adam had sinned. THE LORD SAID, BEHOLD, THE MAN IS BECOME AS ONE OF US (plural)-Gen 3:22. The "Us" is referring to more than one—the Trinity.

    AND GOD SAID, LET US (more than one) MAKE MAN IN OUR (plural) IMAGE, AFTER OUR (plural) LIKENESS-Gen 1:26. The "us" is referring to more than one, the Trinity.

    There are many other Scriptures that also show two or three Persons of the Trinity. Some of them are listed here. Job 26:13; 27:3; 33:4; 1 Cor 12:4-6; Ps 2:2,7,12; Isa 63:6-16; Ps 51:1; Zech 7:12.

4-WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN IT SAYS "THESE THREE ARE ONE?"

    What does it mean when the verse tells us that THESE THREE ARE ONE? This is answered in the following verses. It is written, AND THE GLORY WHICH THOU GAVEST ME I HAVE GIVEN THEM; THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, EVEN AS WE ARE ONE: I IN THEM, AND THOU IN ME, THAT THEY MAY BE MADE PERFECT IN ONE; AND THAT THE WORLD MAY KNOW THAT THOU HAST SENT ME, AND HAST LOVED THEM, AS THOU HAST LOVED ME-Jn 17:22,23. Note the words, THAT THEY MAY BE ONE, EVEN AS WE ARE ONE. As the body of Christ is one, in the same way, Jesus and His Father are one. The body of Christ is one, yet within it are separate persons. In the same way, Jesus and His Father are one, yet separate Persons. The verse continues, I IN THEM. We are to be one in Christ, yet we are separate persons, but Jesus dwells in us. The verse continues, EVEN AS WE ARE ONE. In the same way, as Jesus and we are one, yet separate persons so the Father and Jesus are one, but separate Persons.
  
This is further substantiated in multitudes of verses.

    Without question, the Bible shows us that the Godhead is one, but it consists of three separate Persons—God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  The Bible has warned us over and over that this is the age of deception. This is the age when many new doctrines have already come along, and many more will follow before the Lord takes His few faithful ones home. Beware, that you do not get caught in one of Satan’s deceptions. The Scriptures show that "many will be deceived"-ref Mt 24:11.

5-THE TRINITY OF GOD; THE TRINITY OF SATAN

THE TRINITY OF GOD:   THE TRINITY OF SATAN:
God the Father         Satan (or the dragon)
God the Son
  Brings glory to the Father
  The Antichrist
(or the beast) Brings glory to Satan (the dragon)
God the Holy Spirit
  Brings glory to the Son-ref Jn 16:13,14
  The false prophet
Brings glory to the Antichrist (the beast)

   13:12. AND HE (the false prophet)
  
EXERCISETH ALL THE POWER (or authority)
  
OF THE FIRST BEAST (which is the Antichrist)
  
BEFORE HIM (or in its presence, or on his behalf),
  
AND CAUSETH (or makes)
  
THE EARTH AND THEM WHICH DWELL THEREIN (or its inhabitants)
  
TO WORSHIP THE FIRST BEAST, WHOSE DEADLY (or fatal)
  
WOUND WAS HEALED. The false prophet brings glory to the Antichrist. He causes the people of the world to worship the Antichrist. He is the third person of Satan's trinity.

    Consider the Holy Spirit. He is the third Person of the Trinity of God. It is written, HOWBEIT WHEN HE, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH, IS COME, HE WILL GUIDE YOU INTO ALL TRUTH: FOR HE SHALL NOT SPEAK OF HIMSELF; BUT WHATSOEVER HE SHALL HEAR, THAT SHALL HE SPEAK: AND HE WILL SHOW YOU THINGS TO COME. HE SHALL GLORIFY ME: FOR HE SHALL RECEIVE OF MINE, AND SHALL SHOW IT UNTO YOU-Jn 16:13,14.
