INTRODUCTION: This is a teaching series that will run through 5 Tuesdays in the month of November, 2016. Today, we'll dwell on THE TRINITY and zeroing on THE HOLY SPIRIT. In weeks to come, we will concentrate on the HOLY SPIRIT, His fruit and His Gifts, so also why it is very important for us to walk with Him. They are going to be practical teaching sessions as those of us who are yet to be baptized in the Holy Spirit but desire it will have the encounter during these services. Holy Spirit is the third Person of THE TRINITY. He is not a force, He is not a power, He is not just a-manifestation, He is God, and He is a Person. He was there at the creation of the heaven and the earth, so also when man was made. Gen 1:1-2, 26-27. He is the Comforter that was sent down to earth from the Father and the Word after the ascension of our Lord Jesus Christ, He came on the da of Pentecost, He has been with the Church and will forever remain here. John 14:16. His place of abode has been our body - 1 Corinthians 3:16, 17; 6: 19,20. He is here to glorify Jesus and build the Church. He is our teacher, Comforter, Strengthener, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor_... Do you know Him? Have you received His baptism? Luke 3:16

THE TRINITY

WHAT THE TRINITY IS NOT

1.      That there is only one person/being called God.  

2.     That the Father, Son and Holy Ghost refer to three manifestations of one person.

3.     That God consists of three persons in one person or 3 beings in one being.

4.     That the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are essential parts of one being, just as man is made up of body, soul and spirit.

THE GODHEAD

a)     The Father is called God. 1 Corinthian 8:6, Son is called God, Isaiah 9:6-7; Hebrew 1;8; John 1:1-2; 20:28 and the Holy Spirit is called God, Acts 5:3-4

b)    As individual Persons, each can be called God and collectively, they can be spoken of as one God because of their 0 perfect unity. The word GOD is used either as a singular or a plural word like sheep. 1 John 5:7-8

c)     Everything that could be spoken of Goa collectively applies equally to each member of the Godhead as an individual but there are some things that are said of each person of the Deity as to position, office and work that couldn't be spoken as of the other members of the Godhead.

d)    The Father is the Head of Christ, 1 Corinthian 11:3, The Son is the only begotten of the Father, 2 John 3 and The Holy Ghost proceeds from both the Father and the Son. John 14:26; 15:26; 16:7-15; Acts 2:34.

e)     Plural nouns are used of God, proving plurality of persons, Genesis 1:26; 3:22; 11:7; Isaiah 6:8; John 14:23; 17:11,22-23; Exodus 22:28; 1 Samuel 4:8; Daniel 2:11; 4:6-9;5:11,14, Genesis 20:13;35:7.

f)      At the water Baptism of our Lord Jesus Christ, three of them were involved. Matthew 3:16, 17

g)     The Trinity jointly are involved in the functioning of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in a believer. 1 Corinthian 12:4-7

Ø  Christ now sits at right hand side of God the Father, Psalm 110:1; Matthew 22:44; 26:64; Revelation 22:3

Ø  Jesus said 'He will confess men before My Father', Matthew 10:32; Revelation 3:5

Ø  Equal with the Father in some things and not in other things, John 14:28; Mark 13:32; 1 Corinthian 11:3

HOLY SPIRIT

·        His work at new birth. John 3:5-8; Romans 8:16; 1 Corinthian 12:13, 2 Corinthian 5:17

·        His work in the in Baptism of the Holy Spirit. Luke 24: 49; Acts 1:5, 8, Ephesians 5:18

·        His continuous work in the life of a believer

·        His fruit and Gifts. Galatians 5:22-23; 1 Corinthian 12:1-31
