God the Holy Spirit – Adventist Fundamental Belief 5

God the eternal Spirit was active with the Father and the Son in Creation, incarnation, and redemption. He inspired the writers of Scripture. He filled Christ’s life with power. He draws and convicts human beings; and those who respond He renews and transforms into the image of God. Sent by the Father and the Son to be always with His children, He extends spiritual gifts to the church, empowers it to bear witness to Christ, and in harmony with the Scriptures leads it into all truth. (Gen. 1:1, 2; Luke 1:35; Luke 4:18; Acts 10:38; 2 Peter 1:21; 2 Cor. 3:18; Eph. 4:11-12; Acts 1:8; John 14:16-18; John 14:26; John 15:26-27; John 16:7-13.)

  1. There is no difference. They are two words for the same concept.

    That said, different churches have different concepts of the Trinity. The Adventist concept of the Trinity is not the same as the Catholic concept, for instance.

    Amen!(2)
  2. Trinity is simply a word derived from the word three. We need not be confused by it. Matthew 28:19 mentions the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. This is the God head or the Trinity. This verse testify to the fact that in the God head there are three distinct persons.

    Amen!(0)
