The Three Highest Powers In Heaven

The Bible provides evidence about the Three Highest, Holiest Beings in Heaven. The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost are the Most Powerful three distinct agencies. They work together for human beings. They are united in their work of making the church on earth like the church in heaven.

Where in the Bible refers to their existence together?


   "John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; 

And from Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us and washed us from our sins in his own blood, 

And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen."  Rev. 1:4-6

           Note: The Father, here, describes as "him which is, and which was, and which is to come in this text. The Holy Spirit describes as "seven Spirits". This expression refers to the Holy Ghost. Thompson remarks: “That is, from the Holy Spirit, denominated ‘the seven spirits,’ because seven is a sacred and perfect number; not thus named as denoting interior plurality, but the fulness and perfection of his gifts and operations.” Barnes says, “The number seven, therefore, may have been given by the Holy Spirit with reference to the diversity or the fulness of his operations on the souls of men, and to his manifold agency in the affairs of the world, as further developed in this book.” The third is Jesus Christ, the characteristic which pertains to Him are mentioned as: "the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth". The One Who "washed us from our sins in his own blood". 

   (See also Matt. 3:16,17; John 14:16,26; 15:26; 1Pet. 1:2; 1Cor. 12: 4-6; Heb. 9:14; Isa. 48:16)

What text in the Bible expresses God as more than one in number?


     Gen 1:1 " In the beginning God (Elohim) created the heaven and the earth."

             Note: Elohim is a Hebrew word for God; it is plural in form.

Is there any English Bible translation that refers to God the Creator in plural form?


      Eccl 12:1  Remember also thy Creators in days of thy youth, While that the evil days come not, Nor the years have arrived, that thou sayest, 'I have no pleasure in them.' (Young's Literal Version)

What are the common commentaries regarding Isaiah 54:5 on "Maker and Husband"?


      Most of the commentaries agree on the word "Maker and Husband" as plural but rendered in all English Bible Version in the singular forms, such as Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible, Jamieson-Fausset- Brown Bible Commentary, Barnes' Note on the Bible, and more.

If Elohim is more than one, why is it in Deut. 6:4 it declares YHWH as one?


      The text reads, "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD (YHWH):" Deut. 6:4. 

        Note: The Hebrew word for "one" is "echad", a plural form that agrees with YHWH.

The same word, ECHAD, was used in the following texts, which refers to a group stated as one:

   Gen 2:24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one (H259, ‘echâd) flesh.

Ezr 2:64 The whole congregation together (H259, ‘echâd) was forty and two thousand three hundred and threescore, 

Eze 37:17 And join them one to another into one (H259, ‘echâd) stick; and they shall become oneH259 in thine hand.

Does it mean that the Lord YHWH is not just one?


       The answer is yes.

Who are They?


 The Father

Psa 110:1 "A Psalm of David. The LORD(yehôvâh) said unto my Lord('âdôn), Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool." 

Mar 12:35-37 And Jesus answered and said, while he taught in the temple, How say the scribes that Christ is the Son of David? For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool. David therefore himself calleth him Lord; and whence is he then his son? And the common people heard him gladly. 

     Note: The LORD(YHWH), as referred to in Ps. 110:1, is none other but the Father, while Jesus points Himself as Lord(Adon), as implied in Mark 12:35-37.

 The Son

Exo 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God('êl) Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH (YHWH) was I not known to them.

John 8:56,58 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. 

            Note: The two texts imply that Jesus(YHWH) met with Patriarch Abraham.

The Holy Ghost

Isaiah's Vision of the Lord

In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple. Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory... Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.   And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.  Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.  Isa 6:1-3, 8-10

               Note: In verse 1 of the same chapter, Isaiah saw the Lord(Adonai) sitting on the throne while the seraphim were crying one to another, saying, "Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD(YHWH) of hosts" (verse 3) and talked to Isaiah. According to Paul in Acts 28:25-27, this YHWH is none other than the Holy Spirit
