Is The Trinity Biblical?
From the Christian Research Institute
www.equip.org
The Trinity is a basic doctrine of orthodox Christianity. Yet the word "Trinity" is not found anywhere in the Bible. Is the doctrine of the Trinity really biblical?
The doctrine of the Trinity says that there is one All Mighty One (God) who exists eternally as three distinct persons, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I can assure you that the elements of this doctrine are all taken directly from the Bible.
The first plank of the Trinitarian platform is that there is only one All Mighty One (God). The Bible could not be more explicit on this point, which it states explicitly about two dozen times. In Isaiah 44:8 Yahweh (The LORD) says that even He does not know of any other (mighty ones)gods!
Yahshua (Jesus) often spoke of the All Mighty One (God) as His Father, and the apostles frequently spoke of "the Almighty One (God) the Father." But the New Testament also insists that Yahshua (Jesus) is The Almighty One (God). For example, Thomas acknowledged Yahshua (Jesus) as, "My Lord(master) and my Almighty One (God)" (John 20:28), and both Peter and Paul spoke of Yahshua (Jesus) as "our All Mighty One (God) and Savior" (2 Pet. 1:1; Tit. 2:13). Yet the New Testament also makes the distinction between the Father and the Son as two very different persons. In fact they tell us that they love one another, speak to each other, and seek to glorify each other (e.g., John 17: 1-26).
The Old Testament refers often to the Holy Spirit as The Almighty One (God) at work in the world, without distinction from the Father. But Yahshua (Jesus) in John 14 to 16 explained that this Holy Spirit would be sent by the Father at the Messiah’s (Christ's) request. The Holy Spirit would teach and guide the disciples, not speaking on His own initiative, but speaking on the Messiah’s 9Christ's) behalf and glorifying The messiah (Christ). Thus, the Holy Spirit is revealed by The Messiah (Christ) to be a third person distinct from the Father and distinct from the Son.
In short, the doctrine of the Trinity is completely and totally biblical, and it is essential that all the Followers of the Messiah Yahshua (Christians) give assent to this doctrine.

Anthony,

If you would lower your pride and actually CLICK on the link above, you will see that the Septuagint is in ENGLISH. I study Greek with a Hebraic mindset. Its not hard to do when you've studied and get an understanding of how the Hebraic mindset works.
Anthony,

Only the blinded at heart speaks as you.
Anthony,

There's no context when you are using Hebraic mindset. I know your Yale degrees taught you basic reason.. right?
Brother Anthony Watson, the very meaning of the Word "ANOTHER" can be found in the following biblical passage: Matthew 13:13-15

Indeed, Jesus said:

"13This is why I speak to them in parables:
"Though seeing, they do not see;
though hearing, they do not hear or understand. 14In them is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah:
" 'You will be ever hearing but never understanding;
you will be ever seeing but never perceiving.
15For this people's heart has become calloused;
they hardly hear with their ears,
and they have closed their eyes.
Otherwise they might see with their eyes,
hear with their ears,
understand with their hearts
and turn, and I would heal them.'[a]"

Brother, you put the stress on the word "ANOTHER" simply because you are spiritually blind. I must pray for you so that our Lord can open yours eyes, since your heart has become calloused; you hardly hear with your ears, and you have closed your eyes...

Brother Anthony Watson, how could the Holy Spirit be ANOTHER Person, different from Jesus While Jesus has said: "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you..." ?

In which form will Jesus come to us after He rose up?

Jesus said again:

"Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them."

Brother Anthony Watson, please tell me, In which form will Jesus be with two or three who come together in His name, after He rose up?

Indeed, Brother Paul has said:

“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me”.

Galatians 2:20

Brother Anthony Watson, please, tell me, Isn’t the Holy Spirit, Christ living in Brother Paul yesterday and in each believer today?

Don’t you know that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever”?

Hebrews 13:8

O my Lord, please open the eyes of the Trinitarians because They are misled!!!!!!

Truly speaking, the word “ANOTHER” was written expressly to confound the wise and learned (Matthew 11:25).

Truly speaking, the word “ANOTHER” was written expressly to confound the blind men(Matthew 13:13-15).

Indeed, Jesus said:

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— 17the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[a] in you. 18I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.

John 14:16-18

Indeed, Jesus has said: "I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you"

"...I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor…."

Here, we see that the FATHER is the One who will give us another Counselor…

But it is also written:

"When the Counselor 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

Here, we notice that JESUS is the One who will give us another Counselor…

Brother Anthony Watson, do you see TWO PERSONS (THE FATHER and JESUS) Who would be the senders of the same Counselor?

Besides, Jesus said:

“ The Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be[a] in you. 18I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you…”

Brother Anthony Watson, according to Galatians 2:20, 1 Corinthians 6:12 and Romans 8: 9-11, isn’t Jesus the same Counsolor, the same Holy Spirit He promised He would be in us?

“He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches."
Revelation 3:22

Anthony,

Babylon will fall soon, and the Torah shall go forth from Zion, and teach all of Yah's TRUE people, and Messiah shall be King over us. HalleluYAH!
Anthony,

They only confirm Torah, so they are following behind.
James, that was one way to put your foot in your mouth!
Anthony,

No can do sir. You only chew it up and spit it out. You always asking for someone to refute you, and yet you cannot be honest when someone DO refute you. Our Torah conversations are over, brother. For now, you are a lost cause when it comes to obedience to Torah, and may Yah reveal His true word to you.

Shalom

P.S... Any other topic you want to talk about?
There are 3 expressions of YAH! FATHER, SON, HOLY SPIRIT, These 3 are 1... many try to understand this naturally, you will never that way... But as you learn to come into His Presence you will see the difference in the expression of YAH... But clearly the scriptures state "Let US make man in OUR image" he who has an ear to hear let 'em hear what the Spirit has spoken before time!!!

Bro. Anthony Watson,

I will cut and paste my message above till you answer all my questions!

Please, try to do it and you will discover at last your spiritually blindness!!!!!

Blessings,

Bro. Germain
I'm back for a while. Mid term went well. Thanks to all who prayed for me. Germain let us look at this passage that contains the word in question I will write it out for you to see.
The passage is found in John 14:10 "Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. [11] "Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. [12] "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father.
[13] "Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
[14] "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. [15] "If you love Me, you will keep My commandments. [16] "I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may be with you forever;
The underline word here translated another is αλλον: It just dose not mean another thing it means another of the same kind when it is used with the word παρακλητον. That is the point of the text and all the post the you reject.
