A word only used to convey the thought of a plurality of Persons in the Godhead. This was revealed at the baptism of the Lord Jesus. The Holy Spirit descended 'like a dove' and abode upon Him; and God the Father declared "This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased." That the Father is a distinct Person and is God is plainly stated, as in John 20:17 . Many passages prove that the Lord Jesus is God: one will suffice: ". . . . in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life." 1 John 5:20 . That the Holy Spirit is a Person and is God the following passages clearly prove: Genesis 1:2 ; Matthew 4:1 ; John 16:13 ; Acts 10:19 ; Acts 13:2,4 ; Acts 20:28 ; Romans 15:30 ; 1 Corinthians 2:10 . The three Persons are also named in the formula instituted by Christ in baptism. Matthew 28:19 . Yet there is but one God. 1 Timothy 2:5 . Satan will have an imitation of the Trinity in the Roman beast, the false prophet, and himself. Revelation 13:4,11 ; Revelation 20:10 .
