Much confusion exists in the minds of God’s people concerning the Trinity of heaven, the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. Some believe that they are three aspects of just one Person. This they illustrate by speaking of the sun as having light, heat and power. Others think that there is only one Person who is God, and that Person is the Lord Jesus, and that no other Person will be seen on the Throne in heaven but the Son. There are others who believe that God is a Person who manifests Himself sometimes as Jesus, and sometimes as the Spirit, and eventually as the Father.
Dr. Bickersteth has presented in a wonderful way a multitude of Scripture texts which correct the thinking, and make clear the true nature of the Trinity. In some cases he presents in parallel columns that which is said of each separate Person of the Trinity, so that it may be clearly seen that there are three distinct and definite Persons who are in this holy Trinity, and whom we call the God-head. He finds the truth concerning the Trinity in many passages of the Old Testament, which otherwise would be most difficult to understand. He has carefully presented the various attributes and activities of each Person of the heavenly Trinity, so that the mind will not be confused when reading these passages.
Bible students will find a wealth of information and inspiration in this volume, for each Person of the Trinity is presented in clear, unmistakable terms for our hearts’ affections. He especially stresses the fact that the term “God” refers to each Person of the Trinity, and does not always refer to the Father. He shows that the word “Lord” applies to each Person of the Trinity, and not just to the Savior. In many passages where the text does not clearly reveal which Person of the Trinity is under consideration, the author shows without question the answer to this perplexity
We are constantly on the alert for a better knowledge of each of the Persons of the Godhead, so that these revelations will fill the heart with worship, praise and thanksgiving. The added information given us by Dr. Bickersteth in this volume will greatly add to our own efficiency in service, and holiness of living while ministering to others.
This book has had that effect in my own heart and life. As you read this marvelous unfolding of the personality of each of these great Three you will be led to worship God as you never did before.
