Who Is The Trinity? Kingdom Life Series with Lynn Donovan

Kingdom LifeThe Trinity

I’ve come to realize that a great number of God’s people struggle to truly understand the Trinity. And I’ll be honest, for many years, I was one of them. It blew my mind to consider God as three people. I mean, come on, how is that possible. So, for the next several posts I want to unpack the Trinity.

Our highest and best life is that of intimacy with God. Without understanding the different aspects of the Trinity, it’s impossible to live in intimacy and trust with God. I’ll also be up front here. I don’t have everything figured out. I’m of the opinion we never will. We will always be discovering new characteristics of the Lord for all eternity. That truth excites me. How about you?

I’m going to share my understanding and perceptions of the Triune God. My observations are based upon the Word and my experience. I admit up front, how I view the Trinity will differ from you and others. Remember, I’m still learning. Yet, what I do know is absolutely amazing and if I’m able to help one other person to gain understanding and lead them closer to God, then I’m going to share what I know.

Let’s get started.

The Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God on earth came to the church as a gift from Jesus as He ascended into heaven.

If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you. —John 14:15-18 (NKJV)

The Holy spirit is the abiding Spirit of the Living God who dwells upon the earth to point the sons and daughters of God continually to Jesus.

The Holy Spirit has many functions. And let me be forthwith, I’m still discovering aspects of the Holy Spirit so I may not have a full understanding of every aspect of the Spirit, but this is what I do know. The Holy Spirit is a comforter. Read this passage:

But the Helper (Comforter, Advocate, Intercessor—Counselor, Strengthener, Standby), the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name [in My place, to represent Me and act on My behalf], He will teach you all things. And He will help you remember everything that I have told you. — John 14:26 (AMP)

There are times when we are in sorrow, fear, uncertainty and asking the Holy Spirit to come and be present allows the Lord to offer us strength, counsel, to comfort, to advocate and intercede for us. In this passage Jesus instructs that the Holy Spirit is His representation. The Holy Spirit also teaches and aids us to remember and learn how to live out what we are discovering in the Bible.


And although I know the Holy Spirit is my comforter and encourager to seek Jesus, the Spirit is also my empowerment and my spiritual might.

“But you shall receive power (“dunamis”) - ability, efficiency and might - when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends - the very bounds - of the earth” (Acts 1:8, AMP.)

The Greek word Dunamis, meaning power, is where we derive our English word, dynamite. I truly see the Holy Spirit as the power source behind my prayers. This is clearly evident as I come into agreement with God’s will and am praying in partnership with the Holy Spirit. Also, I’m convinced that successful deliverance ministry and supernatural healing occurs through our partnership with the Holy Spirit. (I also believe the angelic assist in this as well.)

The Holy Spirit is our constant earthly contact that is available for us to lean into. The Spirit will always point us toward Jesus. He will remind us our power and authority that is available because of Jesus and our blood covenant with Him.

The Holy Spirit offers a plethora of gifts (Galatians 5:22). And our God is not stingy, we are able to walk in any gifting of the Kingdom as long as we are willing to do the hard work and learn to steward that gift in a mature manner in order that we won’t harm ourselves or others.

The Spirit also offers a unique prayer language (1 Corinthians 14). Of which, I’m still unpacking all the aspects of what occurs when we speak in tongues. I’m of the opinion we barely understand the depth of power and position we have available to us when we unlock that gift from our Lord God, Holy Spirit.

Okay, I’ve run long in this post. Next post, Jesus.

What are other verses in the Word that describe what is available to us through the Holy Spirit. What aspects of the Spirit do you relate easily to, what’s difficult?

I have an activation for you this week. Each day this week when you begin your quiet time with God, I want you to start by welcoming the Holy Spirit. Say aloud, “You are welcome here Holy Spirit. Holy Spirit come and speak to me.” Speak in tongues if you are able. Give it a good 15-30 minutes. Watch how the atmosphere will shift. And when it does, ask the Lord questions.

This morning I received such a profound revelation about souls and the devil. It was wild.

Okay, see you in the comments. Love you my Freedom Marching friends. Let’s keep marching. There is a broken and lost world that is desperate to me the sons and daughters of God. Hugs, Lynn
