Holy Trinity

All Three of the Trinity occur in at least 13 verses starting with

Joh 1.33 “… He [Father] that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, & remaining on him, the same is He [Son] which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost” [3rd Person of Godhead] and ending with Jude 20-21 “…praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for…mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.”

Advice – to a lady dating hoping for marriage and to engaged lady. When he takes you to a restaurant pay attention to the food he orders. Don’t make tangible notes (that could raise suspicion) but make mental notes. Enquire during/after a meal how he liked THAT. This is more important in visiting a buffet. When he returns to the table a 2nd time with the same meat, veggie, pasta, or dessert it’s a sign he likes THAT. After the wedding “perfect” THAT for him. A healthy man likes to eat and also likes it that his bride’s a good cook. I married a pretty girl in 1961 who, to my pleasure, has been a great cook as well as lover.

Never question the great Unity

Of the Holy, Happy, Triunity.

Father, Spirit, and Son

Are really, wondrously, One.

And One are also Three,

Somewhat like you and like me.

We are body, spirit, soul;

But we appear only as whole.

God is all Father, Son, Holy Ghost

They are not More. They are Most.

Dad’s mother, “Mom B” (we weren’t allowed to call her grandma),

worked a few years as “girl’s matron” in a mental hospital, when I was a lad. We’d visit some Lord’s Day afternoons; I was introduced early-on to the idea of some being mentally deficient. Later I visited hospitals where some were physically deficient. As a pastor have I seen some spiritually deficient? Probably. It’s better to love, even “waste” (tongue-n-cheek) love than to write them off as hypocrites. At times mentally and physically limited souls are doing the best they can. God knows who are spiritually doing the best they can.

I’m very glad He’s the Final Judge.
