The Meaning of the Holy Trinity
The term “trinity” signifies that God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are not distinct entities but are one and the same. Without a full understanding of the Trinity, comprehending God becomes challenging.
Understanding the Trinity is like grasping the transformations of water (H₂O) from solid to liquid to gas. Despite the changes in appearance and even name, it remains the same chemical compound, H₂O. Similarly, God the Father Jehovah, God the Son Jesus, and God the Holy Spirit are fundamentally one and the same God.
“Theirs are the patriarchs, and from them is traced the human ancestry of the Messiah, who is God over all, forever praised! Amen.”
Numerous Bible verses affirm that God the Father, Jehovah, and God the Holy Spirit are identical (1Co 2:10–11), and Jesus is also identified as the Holy Spirit (1Jn 2:1; Jn 14:26). Just as H₂O seamlessly transforms into a solid, liquid or gas while maintaining the original chemical compound, God assumed three distinct roles for our salvation.
