Searching the Scripture

Lesson 4 The TRINITY

Part 2

In this lesson we will have a look at the TRINITY acting in UNITY.

1. In Creation

GOD the FATHER spoke.

Genesis 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

GOD the SON was the WORD spoken.

John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

GOD the HOLY SPIRIT moved upon the face of the waters.

Genesis 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

Job 26:12-13 He divideth the sea with his power, and by his understanding he smiteth through the proud.
By his spirit he hath garnished the heavens; his hand hath formed the crooked serpent.


2. In the Incarnation

GOD the FATHER gave HIS only SON.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

GOD the SON was born into the world.

Luke 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.

GOD the HOLY SPIRIT came upon Mary to cause conception.

Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

3. In Redemption

GOD the FATHER accepted the sacrifice of Calvary

Hebrew 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

GOD the SON offered HIMSELF as our substitute.

Hebrew 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

GOD the HOLY SPIRIT - JESUS offered HIMSELF “through the eternal Spirit”

Hebrew 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

4. In Salvation

GOD the FATHER received the prodigal from the far country.

Luke 15:22 But the father said to his servants, Bring forth the best robe, and put it on him; and put a ring on his hand, and shoes on his feet:

The FATHER welcomes the sinner, forgives him, supplies robes, rings, and a feast.

GOD the SON is the SHEPHERD that goes to seek the lost sheep.

Luke 15:4 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?

GOD the HOLY SPIRIT seals the new convert.

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

5. In Communion

GOD the FATHER invites us to come to HIM for fellowship.

Ephesians 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

GOD the SON is the reconciliation.

II Corinthians 5:19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation.

GOD the HOLY SPIRIT effects this union and communion.

Ephesians 2:18 For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.

6. In Prayer

GOD the FATHER is the ONE WHO receives the requests.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

GOD the SON is the ONE in WHOSE NAME we pray.

John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.


GOD the HOLY SPIRIT directs us in our requests.

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

7. In Glory

GOD the FATHER is to eventually receive the millennial kingdom.

I Corinthians 15:24 Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.

GOD the SON is the ONE WHO will change our vile body to one like HIS.

Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

GOD the HOLY SPIRIT gives the invitation.

Revelation 22:17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

8. In Regeneration

GOD the FATHER records the new name in glory.

Luke 10:20 Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

GOD the SON cleanses the sin in HIS precious blood.

Ephesians 1:7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

GOD the HOLY SPIRIT performs the transforming miracle of the new birth.

John 3:3-6 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
