Father, Son, Holy Spirit, Trinity

No historical trinitarian ever thought that God consisted of three, separated "persons" as a family.  There is only One God, the Father in heaven. And there is One Son, Jesus of Nazareth Whom God has made to be both Lord and Christ.  That means that there is only One Divine Being or God.  There is only one Mediator, the MAN Christ Jesus Christ. This is a growing list and not all in order: you should expecially note that the epistles written to the churches salutes in the name of God the One God in Heaven, and Jesus of Nazareth whom God made to be both Lord of Christ:  True Christians are Monotheists.

They are two........ one greater than the other (Jn.14:28), one more knowledgeable than the other (Mt.24:36), one worshipped by and feared by the other (Heb.5:1-8), one sanctified and sent into the world by the other (Jn.10:36), as said the Spirit of Christ through the prophet, "Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me) to do Thy will, O God" (Ps.40:6-9). One was the Husbandman; the other was the Vine (Jn.15:1). One was teacher; the other was taught (Jn.8:40). One was, and is, kept alive by the other (Jn.5:26; 6:57). In all things, the Son is subservient to the Father, for, though all power in heaven and in earth has been given to the Son, it is obvious that He who gave the Son that power did not submit Himself to him (1Cor.15:27-28). Every knee shall bow (Phip.2:10), except the knee of the Father. He will not bow to His own Son. Quite the contrary, for in the end, "shall the Son also himself be subject unto Him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all."

In a literal sense there is:
        One God the Father
        One Lord the Son who as man mediates.

I have collected several passages which prove this two-fold relationship.


Is. 49:4 Then I said, I have laboured in vain, I have spent my strength for nought, and in vain:
        yet surely my judgment is with the LORD, and my work with my God.
Is. 49:5 And now, saith the LORD that formed me from the womb
         to be his servant, to bring Jacob again to him,

        Though Israel be not gathered, yet shall I be glorious in the eyes of the LORD,
        and my God shall be my strength.

Notice the two GROUPS which is always the meaning of PREDESTINATED purpose.

And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob,
........[1] and to restore the preserved of Israel:
........[2] I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles,
........[3] that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. Isa 49:6

Which predestinated purpose:

        Ephesians 1:10 That in the dispensation of the fulness of times
       
       he might gather together in one all things in Christ,
              
both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him:

The Iraelites SPLIT OFF from the Gentiles when they ignored the direct command of God to become a blessing.  Instead they decided to murder all of the Gentiles.

Therefore, God ALWAYS purposed that through Abraham people would be one people.

Salvation is Yeshuwah! God chooses those who DO NOT repudiate Him by THEIR OWN SINS.

Thus saith the Lord, the Redeemer of Israel, and his Holy One,
        to him whom man despiseth,
        to him whom the nation abhorreth,
        to a servant of rulers, Kings shall see and arise, princes also shall worship,
        because of the Lord that is faithful, and the Holy One of Israel,
            and he shall choose thee. Isa 49:7

In an econominal sense there is:
        Father or Thought in all classicall trinities.
        Spirit or Breath spirit or breath is what passes between Father and Son.
        Son or articulated Word
Psalms 33:4 For the [1]  word of the [2] LORD is right; and all his works are done in [3] truth.
Psalms 33:5 He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of the LORD.
Psalms 33:6 By the [1] word of the
[2] LORD were the heavens made;
        and all the host of them by the
[3] breath of his mouth.
Psalms 33:7 He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap:
         he layeth up the depth in storehouses.
Psalms 33:8 Let all the earth fear the LORD: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.
Psalms 33:9 For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.
Psalms 33:10 The LORD bringeth the counsel of the heathen to nought: he maketh the devices of the people of none effect.

Psalms 33:13 The LORD looketh from heaven; he beholdeth all the sons of men.
Psalms 33:14 From the place of his habitation he looketh upon all the inhabitants of the earth.
Psalms 33:15 He fashioneth their hearts alike; he considereth all their works.
Psalms 33:16 There is no king saved by the multitude of an host:
        a mighty man is not delivered by much strength.
Psalms 33:17 An horse is a vain thing for safety: neither shall he deliver any by his great strength.
Psalms 33:18 Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear him, upon them that hope in his mercy;
Psalms 33:19 To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine.
Psalms 33:20 Our soul waiteth for the LORD: he is our help and our shield.
Psalms 33:21 For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.
Psalms 33:22 Let thy mercy, O LORD, be upon us, according as we hope in thee.

As many concepts were personified, Our thought is different from our breath is different from our spoken word.  We sent out our breath and it is not part of us: it conveys invisible but powerful information like the wind.  The breath ceases when we articulate the breath into words.

Yet, there are not three Gods or separated beings.
Matt. 11:27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father:
        and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father;
        neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son,
        and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

Matt. 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
        baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Peter understood this to mean:
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,
        Repent, and be baptized every one of you
        in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,
        and ye shall receive the gift of the A Holy Ghost.
Mark 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no man,
        no, not the angels which are in heaven,
        neither the Son,
        but the Father.

Luke 10:22 All things are delivered to me of my Father:
        and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father;
        and who the Father is, but the Son,
        and he to whom the Son will reveal him.

The Spirit of Christ speaks ONLY through the Prophets and the prophecies made more perfect when fulfilled by Jesus of Nazareth Whom God made to be both Lord and Christ. Some of the writings of Moses are prophetic but the foundation upon which the Church is built begins with Samuel.

Deuteronomy 18:15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee,
         of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;
Deuteronomy 18:16 According to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb    
        in the day of the assembly, saying,
                Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God,
                neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
Deuteronomy 18:17 And the LORD said unto me,
        They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

Deuteronomy 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee,
        and will put my words in his mouth;
        and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
Deuteronomy 18:19 And it shall come to pass,
         that whosoever will not hearken unto my words
        which
he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.

"Prophesying" in the good sense was speaking the actual words of Christ in the prophets who could say 'thus saith the Lord."

Deuteronomy 18:20 But the prophet,
        which shall presume to speak a word in my name,
        which I have not commanded him to speak,
        or that shall speak in the name of other gods,
        even that prophet shall die.

Jesus was this prophet:

Luke 24:19 And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him,
        Concerning Jesus of Nazareth,
        which WAS a prophet mighty in deed and word
        before God and all the people:
Luke 24:20 And how the chief priests and our rulers
        delivered him to be condemned to death,
        and have crucified him.
Luke 24:21 But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel
         beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done. 

John Agreed:


John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us,
        (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,
        full of grace and truth.
John 1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying,
        This was he of whom I spake,
        He that cometh after me is preferred before me:
        for he was before me. [As the WORD of God]
John 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.
John 1:17 For the law was given by Moses,
        but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

John 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son,
        which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

John 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him,
        We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write,
        Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.
John 1:48 Nathanael saith unto him, Whence knowest thou me?
        Jesus answered and said unto him, Before that Philip called thee,
        when thou wast under the fig tree, I saw thee.
John 1:49 Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi,
        thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.
John 1:50 Jesus answered and said unto him, Because I said unto thee, I saw thee under the fig tree,
        believest thou?
         thou shalt see greater things than these.
John 1:51 And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you,
        Hereafter ye shall see heaven open,
        and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

Historic Trinitians speak of Thought, Breath and Articulated Words.

 
John 3:35 The Father loveth the Son,
        and hath given all things into his hand.

John 4:21 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, believe me,
        the hour cometh, when ye shall neither in this mountain,
        nor yet at Jerusalem, worship the Father.
John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is,
        when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth:
        for the Father seeketh such to worship him

John 5:36 But I have greater witness than that of John:
        for the works which the Father hath given me to finish,
        the same works that I do, bear witness of me,
        that the Father hath sent me.

1Cor. 13:8 Charity never faileth:
        but whether there be prophecies, they shall fail;
        whether there be tongues, they shall cease;
        whether there be knowledge, it shall vanish away.

Peter identified the prophecies by Christ and the prophecies made more perfect as the resource which would cause the Day Star to arise in our hearts. The church is built upon the teachings left by the prophets and apostles. (2 Peter Chapter One).  He said that they were not subject to private interpretation of further expounding.  In 2 Peter Chapter Two he said that if they did not speak accorting to the left "memory" they were false teachers as there had been false prophets.  Therefore, when the Apostles finished their eye-- and Ear-- witness of the Risen Jesus Christ there would be no further revelation.

Luke 13:6 He spake also this parable;

[168c] the ordinary meaning of names and words, which most people pervert in haphazard ways and thereby cause all sorts of perplexity in one another.” Such, Theodorus, is the help I have furnished your friend to the best of my ability—not much, for my resources are small; but if he were living himself he would have helped his offspring in a fashion more magnificent.

But not to delay, call first, if you please, those who know that Timarchus here lived in the house of Misgolas, then read the testimony of Phaedrus, and, finally, please take the affidavit of Misgolas himself, in case fear of the gods, and respect for those who know the facts as well as he does, and for the citizens at large and for you the jurors, shall persuade him to testify to the truth.“Testimony

        except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.

The Father through the Spirit of Christ breathed His Thoughts on the prophets. Peter said that the Church is built upon the Prophets (by the Spirit of Christ) and the prophecies made more certain by Jesus and left for our memory by the eye-- and ear--witnesses of the Apostles.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets,
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,
        and hath learned of the Father,
        cometh unto me.
Isaiah 54:12 And I will make thy windows of agates, and thy gates of carbuncles,
         and all thy borders of pleasant stones.
Isaiah 54:13 And all thy children shall be taught of the LORD;
        and great shall be the peace of thy children.
Luke 8:40 And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him:
         for they were all waiting for him.
Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized:
        and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father,
        save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
         the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Father, Spirit and Son or Father, Mother, Son define ALL pagan triads.
God ordained Jesus of Nazareth to MODEL the ANTITHESIS. 
Jesus claims ALL of the roles of the pagan father, mother and eternally infant son.

John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father,
        and the Father IN me?
        the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:

John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me:

John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me,
        the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do;

        that he may abide with you for ever;
John 14:17 Even the Spirit OF truth;

John 14:26 But the Comforter [parakletos], which is the Holy Ghost,
        whom the Father will send in my name, [His Name will be Jesus Christ]

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate [parakletos] with the Father,

1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only,
        but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.

Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD;

1John 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk,

That is because:
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life.
John 14:28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away,
        and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice,

John 14:30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you:

John 14:31 But that the world may know that I love the Father;
        and as the Father gave me commandment,
        even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.

Jesus returned to the Father of all spirits and received His Holy Spirit state as promised.
God elevated Jesus of Nazareth to be the sole king, priests and teacher of HIS heavenly kingdom
operating invisibly in the physical world with the "profession" as The Holy Spirit: the Word of God.

John 17:21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee,
        that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.
John 17:22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them;
        that they may be one, even as we are one:
John 17:23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one;
        and that the world may know that thou hast sent me,
        and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
John 17:24 Father, I will that they also, whom thou hast given me, be with me where I am;
        that they may behold my glory, which thou hast given me:
        for thou lovedst me before the foundation of the world.

John 20:15 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou?
        She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him,
        Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away.
John 20:16 Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master.
John 20:17 Jesus saith unto her,
        Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father:
        but go to my brethren, and say unto them,
        I ascend unto my Father, and your Father;
        and to my God, and your God.

God's work is TEACHING, OUR work is believing what we are taught.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets,
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,
        and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
John 6:63 It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the words that I speak unto you,
        they are spirit, and they are life.

Throughout the New Testament and especially in the Epistles as each writer completed his part, the term "The Holy Spirit" almost dissappears and the two-fold relationship of "persons" is universal in the salutations:

Now, Paul's and other writers' salutations in the following epistles:
  1. God the Father in Heaven
  2. Jesus made to be both Lord and Christ to be the one mediator between man and God.
  3. The Spirit OF God identifies HIS rational nature.

Acts 2:22 Ye men of Israel, hear these words;
        Jesus of Nazareth,
        a man approved of God among you by miracles and wonders and signs,
        which God did BY him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
Acts 10:38 How God anointed
        Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power:
        who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil;
        for God was with him.
Acts 2:23 Him, being delivered by the
        determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God,
        ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
Acts 2:24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death:
        because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
Acts 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him,
        I foresaw the Lord always before my face,
        for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
Acts 2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

Acts 2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell,
        neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Acts 2:28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life;
        thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
Acts 2:29 Men and brethren,
        let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David,
        that he is both dead and buried,
        and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him,
        that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh,
        he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
Acts 2:31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell,
        neither his flesh did see corruption.
Acts 2:32 This Jesus
        hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted,
        and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost,
        he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens:
         but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord,
        Sit thou on my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
        both Lord and Christ.
1Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,
        who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness,
        and sanctification, and redemption:
1Corinthians 1:31 that, according as it is written,
        He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Alexander Campbell and others understand that A holy spirit is OUR unholy spirit which has been cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ and not His "spirit."

2Thessalonians 2:13 But we are bound to give thanks to God always for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, for that God chose you from the beginning unto salvation in sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

2 Thessalonians 2.13     Hēmeis de opheilomen eukharistein theō pantote peri humōn, adelphoi “ēgapēmenoi hupo Kuriouhoti heilato humas ho theos ap' arkhēs eis sōtērian en hagiasmō pneumatos kai pistei alētheias,

Jerome 2 Thessalonians 2 nos autem debemus gratias agere Deo semper pro vobis fratres dilecti a Deo quod elegerit nos Deus primitias in salutem in sanctificatione Spiritus et fide veritati

Plut. De Vitando 1

grātĭa , ae, f. gratus; lit., favor, both that in which one stands with others and that which one shows to others. I. (Acc. to gratus, I.) Favor which one finds with others, esteem, regard, liking, love, friendship (syn. favor)

"This is...understood by every attentive reader. The original phrase is hagiasmos pneumatos, and is found only in II. Thess. ii. 13; I. Pet. i. 2. In both places it appears to refer to the sanctification of the spirit of believers.   It is literally rendered "sanctification [or holiness] of spirit." There is no article in the original and no epithet that suggests the Holy Spirit in either passage. 

God has chosen men to salvation through (or by) holiness of spirit;
       
not through the holiness of his Spirit,
        but through the holiness of their spirit.

When Jesus prayed (John xvii.) for the sanctification or holiness of his disciples,
          it was through the truth: "Sanctify them through the truth;
          thy word is truth."

The belief of the truth is, therefore, by Paul associated with this holiness or sanctification of spirit.

The Spirit of God is frequently denominated in these days, "the Sanctifier." Let it be granted that it is the Spirit that sanctifies or sets apart men to God, still it must be argued from the Record  
        that he sanctifies them only through the truth or gospel believed.
A sanctified unbeliever is inconceivable;
        and, as "without holiness [or sanctification of spirit] no man can see the Lord;
        so, without faith, there can be no holiness, and no action acceptable to God.

All persons sanctified to God to any high office or function, were anointed, and thus consecrated to his special service. So all Christians, being priests, 

        are anointed or sanctified by the Holy Spirit 
       [135] through the obedience of the truth,
        and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus,
        cleansing their consciences from dead works to serve the living God."
Jesus of Nazareth was killed, was resurrected, was changed into His post-resurrection state and returned on the day of Pentecost.

Our spirit came from God and goes back to God:
Acts 7:59 And they stoned Stephen,
        calling upon God,
        and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
Luke 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice,
        he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit:
        and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

Of the Comforter and Spirit OF Truth we know that His name is still Jesus of Nazareth. This Spirit or mental disposition of truth does not speak on its own: the Spirit OF Christ will speak to appointed apostles spirit to spiritl.
John 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come,
        he will guide you into all truth:
        for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear,
        that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

Matthew 17:2 And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun,
        and his raiment was white as the light.
Mark 9:2 And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John,
        and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.

THIS IS LIKE OUR POST-CHANGED NATURE.
Rom. 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle,
        separated unto the gospel of God,
Rom. 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his prophets in the holy scriptures,)
Rom. 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord,
        which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
Rom. 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power,
        according to the spirit of holiness,
        by the resurrection from the dead:

Luke 20:35 But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world,
        and the resurrection from the dead,
        neither marry, nor are given in marriage:

Luke 20:36 Neither can they die any more:
        for they are equal unto the angels;
        and are the children of God,
        being the children of the resurrection.

Rom. 5:5 And hope maketh not ashamed;
        because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts
        by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

Romans 7:17 Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Romans 7:18 For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,)
        dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me;
        but how to perform that which is good I find not.
Romans 7:19 For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
Romans 7:20 Now if I do that I would not, it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.
Romans 7:21 I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me.
Romans 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:
Romans 7:23 But I see another law in my members,
        warring against the law of my mind,
        and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.
Romans 7:24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
        So then with the [my] mind I myself serve the law of God;
        but with the  [my] flesh the law of sin.

Romans 1:9 For God is my witness,
        whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son,
        that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;
Rom. 9:1 I say the truth in Christ, I lie not,
        my conscience also bearing me witness
        in my Holy Ghost,
Rom. 14:17 For the kingdom of God
                is not meat and drink;  [our body]
        but righteousness, and peace,
                and joy in the Holy Ghost. [our spirit made holy]

Which means:

Rom. 15:13 Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing,
        that ye may abound in hope,
        through the power of the Holy Ghost.
Rom. 15:16 That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles,
        ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable,
        being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.

Romans 16:25 Now to him that is of power to stablish you according to my gospel,
        and the preaching of Jesus Christ,
        according to the revelation of the mystery,
        which was kept secret since the world began,
Romans 16:26 But now is made manifest,
        and by the scriptures of the prophets,
        according to the commandment of the everlasting God,
        made known to all nations for the obedience of faith:
Romans 16:27 To God only wise[There is only one God Being]
        be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. [Made to be both Lord and Christ]
        Written to the Romans from Corinthus,
        and sent by Phebe servant of the church at Cenchrea.
1Cor. 1:1 Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ
        through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother,
1Cor. 1:2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth,
        to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints,
        with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours:
1Cor. 1:3 Grace be unto you, and peace,
        from God our Father,
        and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 

1Cor. 2:13 Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth,
        but which the Holy Ghost teacheth;
        comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
1Cor. 6:19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you,
        which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
1Cor. 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand,
        that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed:
        and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

1Cor. 4:1 Let a man so account of us,
        as of the ministers of Christ,
        and stewards of the mysteries of God.
1Cor. 4:4 For I know nothing by myself;
        yet am I not hereby justified:
        but he that judgeth me is the Lord.
1Cor. 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time,  until the Lord come,
        who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness,
        and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts:
        and then shall every man have praise of God.

1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods,
        whether in heaven or in earth,
        (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 8:6 But to us
        there is but ONE GOD, the Father, OF whom are all things, and we in him;
        and ONE LORD Jesus Christ, BY whom are all things, and we by him

1Corinthians 15:42 So also is the resurrection of the dead.

        It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption:
1Corinthians 15:43 It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory:
         it is sown in weakness; it is raised in power:
1Corinthians 15:44 It is sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body.
        There is a natural body, and there is a spiritual body.
1Corinthians 15:45 And so it is written,
        The first man Adam was made a living soul;
         the last Adam was made a quickening spirit.
1Corinthians 15:46 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural;
        and afterward that which is spiritual.
1Corinthians 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy:
        the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1Corinthians 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy:
        and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.

1Corinthians 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy,
        we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.
1Corinthians 15:50 Now this I say, brethren,
        that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God;
        neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.
1Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I shew you a mystery;
        We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
1Corinthians 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:
        for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible,
        and we shall be changed.
1Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
        and this mortal must put on immortality.
1Corinthians 15:54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption,
        and this mortal shall have put on immortality,
        then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written,
        Death is swallowed up in victory.

2Cor. 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, and Timothy our brother,
        unto the church of God which is at Corinth, with all the saints which are in all Achaia:
2Cor. 1:2 Grace be to you and peace from God our Father,
        and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
2Cor. 1:3 Blessed be God, even the Father
        of our Lord Jesus Christ,
        the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;

2Cor. 4:3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Cor. 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not,
        lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ
        who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2Cor. 4:5 For we preach not ourselves,
        but Christ Jesus the Lord;
        and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
2Cor. 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness,
        hath shined in our hearts,
        to give the light of the
                knowledge of the glory of God
                in the face of Jesus Christ.
2Cor. 4:7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels,
        that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
2Cor. 6:4 But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God,
        in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,
2Cor. 6:5 In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;
2Cor. 6:6 By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness,
        by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,

All of these are qualities of a Christian; A Christian has A holy spirit. A Holy Spirit is compared to A pure spirit.

2Cor. 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ,
        and the love of God,
        and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.

For there he sat beyond the reach of their hot endeavours, a helpless, hopeless victim. At last they rent off limbs from oaks and were for prising up the roots with levers not of iron.

The Holy Spirit was Jesus of Nazareth who now lives in His post-resurrected Spiritual body.  It was Jesus fufilling His promise to return to be with them in Spirit and not in Flesh. 
Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted,
        and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Ghost,
        he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.

        Ye rulers of the people, and elders of Israel,
Acts 4:8ASV Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said unto them, Ye rulers of the people, and elders
 All post-resurrected work was done by Jesus of Nazareth now in Spirit form:

Acts 4:9 If we this day be examined of the good deed done to the impotent man,
        by what means he is made whole;
Acts 4:10 Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel,
         that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified,
        whom God raised from the dead,
        even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.
Acts 4:11 This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders,
        which is become the head of the corner.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other:
        for there is none other name under heaven given among men,
        whereby we must be saved.
Acts 4:13 Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John,
        and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men,
        they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
Acts 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,
        and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 4:14 And beholding the man which was healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it.
Acts 4:15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselve
Acts 4:23 And being let go, they went to their own company,
        and reported all that the chief priests and elders had said unto them.
Acts 4:24 And when they heard that, they lifted up their voice to God with one accord,
        and said, Lord, thou art God, which hast made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and all that in them is:

The prophets spoke by the Spirit of Christ (1 Peter 1:11; Rev 19:10)
Acts 4:25 Who by the mouth of thy servant David hast said,
        Why did the heathen rage, and the people imagine vain things?
Most translations understand that:
Acts 4:25WEB who said by the Holy Spirit through your servant David our forefather,
    ‘Why do the nations rage,
    and the peoples plot foolish things?
Acts 4:25ASV who by the Holy Spirit,
        by the mouth of our father David thy servant, didst say,
        Why did the Gentiles rage, And the peoples imagine vain things?
Acts 4:25KJV You spoke by the Holy Spirit
        through the mouth of your servant, our father David:    
        “Why do the nations rage
        and the peoples plot in vain?

LOOK BACK AT CHAPTER TWO TO UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE WANTED TO BE BAPTIZED

Acts 2:25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face,
        for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
Acts 2:26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad;
        moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
Acts 2:27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell,
         neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
Acts 2:28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life;
        thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
Acts 2:29 Men and brethren,
        let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David,
        that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.

The promise by the Spirit OF Christ was:

Acts 2:30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him,
        that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh,
        he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
Acts 2:31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ,
         that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
Acts 2:32 This Jesus hath God raised up, whereof we all are witnesses.
The prophets spoke by Christ and had no more personal power than David:

1Peter 1:10 Of which salvation the prophets have inquired and searched diligently,
        who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Peter 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify,
        when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.
Jesus received that promise when He returned to the Giver and was changed into the Holy (adjective) Spirit State still called Jesus of Nazareth:

Acts 2:33 Therefore being by the right hand of God exalted,
        and having received of the Father
        the promise of the Holy Ghost,

        he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear.
Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself,
        The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Acts 2:35 Until I make thy foes thy footstool.
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        that God hath made
        that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified,
        both Lord and Christ.
Acts 4:26 The kings of the earth stood up,
        and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord,
        and against his Christ.
Acts 4:27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus,
        whom thou hast anointed,
        both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles,
        and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
Acts 4:28 For to do whatsoever thy hand and thy counsel determined before to be done.
Acts 10:38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth
        with the Holy Ghost and with power:
        who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil;
        for God was with him.

Acts 13:33 God hath fulfilled the same unto us their children,
        in that he hath raised up Jesus again;
        as it is also written in the second psalm,
        Thou art my Son,
        this day have I begotten thee.

Acts 13:34 And as concerning that he raised him up from the dead,
        now no more to return to corruption,
        he said on this wise,
        I will give you the sure mercies of David.
This is the promise of the Holy Spirit of Christ which Jesus would become.

For instance, Augustine A Treatise on Fath and the Creed wrote:
"The following text of the Apostles' Creed may be collected from this book of St. Augustin, and was current in North Africa towards the close of the fourth century:
"But God,
        when He begot the Word,
        begot that which He is Himself.

"Neither out of nothing, nor of any material already made and founded did He then beget;
        but He begot of Himself that which He is Himself.

"God the Father, on the other hand, who possessed both the will and the power to declare Himself with the utmost truth to minds designed to obtain knowledge of Him,
        with the purpose of thus declaring Himself begot this [Word]
        which He Himself is who did beget;
        which [Person] is likewise called His Power and Wisdom,
        inasmuch as it is by Him that He has wrought all things, and in order disposed them;
        of whom these words are for this reason spoken:
        "She (Wisdom) reacheth from one end to another mightily,
        and sweetly doth she order all things. "
GOD MADE JESUS OF NAZARETH "TO BE" LORD, CHRIST, POWER, WISDOM, GRACE, RIGHTEOUS, SANCTIFICATION, REDEMPTION AND ALL THAT MAKES THE INVISIBLE, INAUDIBLE GOD BOTH VISIBLE AND AUDIBLE.

        the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

        neither reprove after the hearing of his ears
AFTER THE MOUTH TO MOUTH REVELATION WAS COMPLETED BY JESUS THE HOLY SPIRIT, THAT TERM ALMOST DISAPPEARS FROM THE EPISTLES.
That the God of
    our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of glory, may give unto you the
    spirit of wisdom and
    [spirit of] revelation in the
    [spirit of] knowledge of him: Ep.1:17

Phil. 1:1 Paul and Timotheus,
        the servants of Jesus Christ,
       
to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi,  
        with the bishops and deacons:
Phil. 1:2 Grace be unto you, and peace,
        from God our Father,
        and from the Lord Jesus Christ.
Col. 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ
        by the will of God, and Timotheus our brother,
Col. 1:2 To the saints and faithful brethren 
        in Christ which are at Colosse:  
        Grace be unto you, and peace,
                from God our Father
                and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Col. 1:3 We give thanks to God and the Father
        of our Lord Jesus Christ, praying always for you,
Col. 1:4 Since we heard of your faith in Christ Jesus, and of the love which ye have to all the saints,

1Cor. 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified,

            unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1Cor. 1:24 But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks,
        Christ the power of God,
        and the wisdom of God.
1Cor. 1:25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men;
        and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1Cor. 1:26 For ye see your calling, brethren,
        how that not many wise men after the flesh,
        not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
1Cor. 1:28 And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen,
        yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are:
1Cor. 1:29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
1Cor. 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus,
        who of God
        is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1Cor. 1:31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.  

1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand,
        that no man speaking by the Spirit OF God calleth Jesus accursed:
        and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

The prepositional phrase OF GOD proves that the Holy Spirit IS God's own Spirit, mind or mental disposition and not another person.

1Corinthians 12:4 Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
1Corinthians 12:5 And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
1Corinthians 12:6 And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
1Corinthians 12:7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.
1Corinthians 12:8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom;
        to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;
The church is built upon the prophets (by Christ) and prophecies made more CERTAIN by Jesus and revealed to the Apostles who left us a memory of those eye- and ear-witnesses. Paul distinguishes between the WE or apostles and the YOU who have not direct revelation. The Word was perfected when each part was completed.
1Cor. 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

        to them that have obtained like precious faith with us
        through the righteousness of God
        and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
2Peter 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you
        through the knowledge of God,
        and of Jesus our Lord,

2Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us
        all things that pertain unto life and godliness,
        through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
1Cor. 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child:
         but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

1Cor. 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face:
        now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
1Cor. 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Not by kings, priests or Scribes!!
Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, [His Word]
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
        by whom also he made the worlds;
Heb. 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory,
        and the express image of his person,
        and upholding all things by the WORD of his power,
        when he had by himself purged our sins,
        sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Person is "substance" and not "people."
hupostasis A. as an act, standing under, supporting, confidence
Huphistemi having laid them as a foundation, having begun with them

Substantia I. that of which a thing consists, the being, essence, contents, material, substancee
Heb. 1:4 Being made so much better than the angels,
        as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
Heb. 2:4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders,
        and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?

Heb  3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling,
        consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
Heb. 3:2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him,
        as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
Heb. 3:3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses,
        inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
Heb. 3:4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.
Heb. 3:5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
Heb. 3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we,
        if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
Heb. 3:7 Wherefore (as the Holy Ghost saith, To day if ye will hear his voice,
Heb. 3:8 Harden not your hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of temptation in the wilderness:

The Holy Spirit spoke through His Word.

Heb. 6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened,
        and have tasted of the heavenly gift,
        and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost,
Heb. 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God,
        and the powers of the world to come,

Heb. 9:8 The Holy Ghost this signifying,
        that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest,
        while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:

Heb. 10:4 For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins.
Heb. 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world,
        he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not,
        but a body hast thou prepared me:
Heb. 10:6 In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.
Heb. 10:7 Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God.
Heb. 10:8 Above when he said,
        Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin
        thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein;
        which are offered by the law;
Heb. 10:9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God.
        He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.
Heb. 10:10 By the which will we are sanctified
        through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
Heb. 10:11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices,
        which can never take away sins:
Heb. 10:12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever,
        sat down on the right hand of God;
1Timothy 2:3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour;
1Timothy 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.
1Timothy 2:5 For there is one God,
            and one mediator between God and men,
            the man Christ Jesus;
1Timothy 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.
Heb. 10:13 From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
Heb. 10:14 For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Heb. 10:15 Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us:
        for after that he had said before,
Heb. 11:38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains,
        and in dens and caves of the earth.
Heb. 11:39 And these all,
        having obtained a good report through faith,
        received not the promise:
Heb. 11:40 God having provided some better thing for us,
        that they without us should not be made perfect.

James 1:1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
        to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.
James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this,
        To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction,
        and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

1Pet. 1:1 Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ,
        to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia,
1Pet. 1:2 Elect according to the foreknowledge of God the Father,
        through sanctification of the Spirit,
        unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Jesus Christ:
        Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied.
Through
EN endu, into, at or by, of the instrument, means of,
Eis into, resting in, 
1Pet. 1:3 Blessed be
        the God and Father
        of our Lord Jesus Chri
st,
        which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope
        by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead
1Pet. 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves, but unto us they did minister the things, which are now reported unto you by them that have preached the gospel unto you with the Holy Ghost sent down from heaven; which things the angels desire to look into.
2Pet. 1:1 Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ,
        to them that have obtained like precious faith with us
        through the righteousness of God
        and our Saviour Jesus Christ:
2Pet. 1:2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through
        the knowledge of God,
        and of Jesus our Lord,

This is the only worship concept for the ekklesia or synagogue of Christ from the Wilderness onward.

2Pet. 1:16 For we have not followed cunningly devised fables,
        when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ,
        but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.

2Pet. 1:17 For he received from God the Father honour and glory,
        when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory,
        This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.
2Pet. 1:18 And this voice which came from heaven we heard,
        when we were with him in the holy mount.
2Pet. 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;  bebaios
        whereunto ye do well that ye take heed,
        as unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
        until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
2Pet. 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture
        is of any private interpretation. [further expounding]

WHY NO HUMAN HAS ANYTHING TO ADD:

2Pet. 1:21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:
        but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost. [Spirit OF Christ]
This was the Spirit OF Christ:

1Pet. 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow.

Rev. 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
1Corinthians 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly;
        but then face to face: now I know in part;
        but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Again look at WHAT whas to be revealed IN PARTS of the WHOLE

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners

        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
Not by kings, priests or Scribes!!
Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, [His Word]
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
        by whom also he made the worlds;
2Corinthians 3:18 But we all,
        with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord,
        are changed into the same image from glory to glory,
        even as by the Spirit of the Lord.

 The reason Doctors take away the key to knowledge is the reason the Scriptures are not to be tampered with or marketed or corrupted:

2Pet. 2:1 But there were false prophets also among the people,
        even as there shall be false teachers among you,
        who privily shall bring in damnable heresies,
        even denying the Lord that bought them,
        and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2Pet. 2:2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways;
        by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.
2Pet. 2:3 And through covetousness
        shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you:
        whose judgment now of a long time lingereth
        not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

1John 1:1 That which was from the beginning,
        which we have heard,
        which we have seen with our eyes,
        which we have looked upon,
        and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;
1John 1:2 (For the life was manifested,
        and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life,
                which was with the Father,
                and was manifested unto us;)
1John 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you,
        that ye also may have fellowship with us:
        and truly our fellowship
        is with the Father,
        and with his Son Jesus Christ.

1John 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven,
        the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
2John 3 Grace be with you, mercy, and peace,
        from God the Father,
        and from the Lord Jesus Christ,

                the Son of the Father, in truth and love.

2John 9 Whosoever transgresseth,
        and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God.
        He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ,
                he hath both the Father and the Son.

Jesus promised another Comforter and said "I" will come to you.

1John 2:1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not.
        And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1John 2:3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1John 2:4 He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
1John 2:5 But whoso keepeth his word,
        in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.


In His post-resurrection or Spiritual form Jesus continued to guide the Apostles into all truth and continues to be our Mediator with God.

3John 11 Beloved, follow not that which is evil, but that which is good. He that doeth good is of God: but he that doeth evil hath not seen God.

Jude 1 Jude, the servant of Jesus Christ, and brother of James,

Rev. 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ,
        which God gave unto him,
        to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass;
        and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
Rev. 1:2 Who bare record of the word of God,

        for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.
