London Baptist Confession – Week 9

2. God and the Holy Spirit (cont.)

3. In this divine and infinite Being there are three subsistences, the Father, the Word or Son, and the Holy Spirit. All are one in substance, power, and eternity; each having the whole divine essence, yet this essence being undivided.

The Father was not derived from any other being; He was neither brought into being by, nor did He issue from any other being.

– The Son is eternally begotten of the Father.

– The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son.

– All three are infinite, without beginning, and are therefore only one God, Who is not to be divided in nature and being, but distinguished by several peculiar relative properties, and also their personal relations.

– This doctrine of the Trinity is the foundation of all our communion with God, and our comfortable dependence on Him.

    • The Pauper

      Gary,
      Thank you for praying and for asking. Thankfully there has been no progression of the symptoms that have sent Mrs. Pauper to bed. So at present it is hold steady on bed-rest and prayer. We greatly appreciate your prayers.

      P.S. In my exploration of GENDADS (anyone reading should go check it out!) I have not been able to find a way to subscribe via RSS feed. Do you offer that option any where? (I already get the email update but wanted to add you to my collection of feeds)
      Anyway, I am looking forward to more great posts! Thanks!
