Stand Fast Part 5

2Thessalonians 2:15-17 Therefore, brethren, stand fast, and hold the traditions which you have been taught, whether by word, or our epistle. Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which has loved us, and has given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, Comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work. 

We submit the following facts in Scripture to prove a Divine Trinity of separate persons in the Godhead (continues): [10] Two Persons are mentioned and required to understand the plain language of Psalm 2:1-12; 9:19; 132:17; Pro. 30:4; Isa. 4:2; 10:16-17; 28:16; 49:1-10; 50:4-11; 52:13-53:12; 62:11; Mic. 5:1-5; Jer. 23:4-8; 33:14-26; Zech. 3:8-10; 6:12-13. In these passages one is anointed, becomes the son of, is sent by, is taught by, and becomes the servant of the other; and both are called Lord. [11] Three self-acting Persons – the Lord God, the Messiah, and the Holy Spirit – are referred to as blessing, anointing, sending, and doing things for one another in Isaiah 11:2; 42:1-7; 48:16; 59:21; 61:1-2; 63:1-14; Zech. 12:10-13:2. [12] In Zechariah 1:7-21 the Lord of Hosts and the angel of the Lord (also called Lord, Zech. 1:19-20; 2:1-13) are talking together. One Lord says of the other Lord that He has sent Him to Israel (Zech. 2:8-13). One Lord refers to Himself as “Me” and the Lord of Hosts as “His” and “He” (Zech. 2:8-11). The conference continues throughout Zechariah until Zechariah 13:6-7 where both Lords are called fellows or associates. [13] Jesus Christ is called the son of Abraham, David, Mary, and of God (Matt. 1:1; Mark 1:1; 6:3). He is just as much a separate person from God as He is of these other persons. [14] Two Persons are referred to many times in the New Testament (Matt. 11:27; Luke 23:46; John 1:1-2, 18; 5:19-20; 14:1-9; 16:15; 17:3, 10; Acts 2:38-39; 3:13-26; Php. 2:5-11; Eph. 3:5; Col. 1:5; 2Thess. 2:16-17; Tit. 2:13; Heb. 1:1-3; Rev. 20:6; 22:3). [15] Two and three Persons are mentioned in the introductions to New Testament books (Rom. 1:1-4, 7; 1Cor. 1:3; Jas. 1:1; 1Pet. 1:1-3; 2Jn. 1:3; Rev. 1:1-6; etc.). [16] God is the head of Christ and thus greater than He in position (1Cor. 3:23; 11:3; 1Chron. 29:11; John 14:28). [17] Christ is the mediator between God and man, not between Himself and man (1Tim. 2:5).
