230.000.000      Torrey: p234


230.010.000      Torrey: p234, T:I
Topic 10:Again and again the Bible draws the clearest possible distinction between the Holy Spirit and the Father and the Son. They are separate personalities, having mutual relations to one another, acting upon one another, speaking of or to one another, applying the pronouns of the second and third persons to one another.

230.010.005      Torrey: p234, T:I, P:General
POINT 5: The doctrine of the Trinity is not expressly taught in the Bible. It is inferred from various passages about the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit."

The doctrine of the Trinity is not expressly taught in the Bible; it is the putting together of truths that are taught. It is clearly taught in the Bible that there is but one God. It is also clearly taught that there are three Divine Persons -- the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

230.010.010      Torrey: p234, T:I, P:1
POINT 10: A clear distinction is drawn between Jesus Christ, who was on the earth, the Father who spoke to him from heaven, and the Holy Spirit who descended in a bodily form as a Dove, upon Him.

Luke 3:21- 22 [21] When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened [22] and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased."

230.010.020      Torrey: p234, T:I, P:2
POINT 20: A clear distinction is drawn between "the name of the Father" and "of the Son" and "of the Holy Spirit."

Matthew 28:19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

230.010.030      Torrey: p234, T:I, P:3
POINT 30: A clear distinction is drawn between the Son who prays and the Father to whom He prays, and the "Another Counselor" who is given in answer to the prayer.

John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever --

230.010.040      Torrey: p234, T:I, P:4
POINT 40: A clear distinction is drawn between Jesus Christ, who goes away and the Holy Spirit, who comes to take His place.

John 16:7 But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.

230.010.050      Torrey: p235, T:I, P:5
POINT 50: A clear distinction is drawn between the Son exalted to the right hand of the Father, and the Father Himself, and the Holy Spirit, whom the Son receives from the Father and sheds upon the church.

Acts 2:33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear.
