Holy Triainty

IMG_1554The Holy Trinity… simply the words alone can make a person’s heart beat a bit faster when asked to explain the three in one person.

1 King 19 V 11-13

So He said, “Go forth and stand on the mountain before the Lord.” And behold, the Lord was passing by! And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the Lord; but the Lord was not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, but the Lord was not in the earthquake. 12 After the earthquake a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire; and after the fire a sound of a gentle blowing. 13 When Elijah heard it, he wrapped his face in his mantle and went out and stood in the entrance of the cave.

Exodus 34 V 29-35

29It came about when Moses was coming down from Mount Sinai (and the two tablets of the testimony were in Moses’ hand as he was coming down from the mountain), that Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because of his speaking with Him. 34 But whenever Moses went in before the LORD to speak with Him, he would take off the veil until he came out; and whenever he came out and spoke to the sons of Israel what he had been commanded, 35 the sons of Israel would see the face of Moses, that the skin of Moses’ face shone.

These are a couple of my favorite bible passages. God can be in what ever form I need at that moment.

God can be God the Father when I need someone strong, almighty and mature whom I turn to in need.

When I need a friend, someone who has experienced what I am experiencing here on Earth, Jesus is my friend and companion.

The Holy Spirit can be there in the dark at night when I need someone to listen to me complain, question or just not understand.

All three in one!

The Holy Trinity… simply the words alone can make a person’s heart beat a bit faster when asked to explain the three in one person.

The Greek word musterion is often translated mystery. It is not a good translation. Rather a better translation would be scared secret.

In English, mystery means something we can not understand or is beyond our comprehension. Sacred secret means something known to some but not to others.

The Holy Trinity is something I can’t explain as a religious scholar might be able to do,

although, I sometimes, I wonder how God feels about the way they explain the Holy Trinity but I do know I can experience the Holy Trinity. A person can experience the Trinity and not have to explain it.

The lyrics to “Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence” rally are meaningful to me.

Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silence

Let all mortal flesh keep silence, And with fear and trembling stand; Ponder nothing earthly minded, For with blessing in His hand, Christ our God to earth descends, Our full homage to demand. King of kings, yet born of Mary, As of old on earth He stood, Lord of Lords, in human vesture, In the body and the blood; He will give to all the faithful His own self for heavenly food. Rank on rank the host of heaven Spreads its vanguard on the way, As the Light of light descends From the realms of endless day, That the powers of hell may vanish As the darkness clears away. At His feet the six winged seraph, Cherubim with sleepless eye, Veil their faces to His presence,

As with ceaseless voice they cry: Alleluia, Alleluia Alleluia, Lord Most High!

 

When a person is in communications with God no matter which person, their face will be radiant. People may not be able to put their finger on what it is about a person that makes them seem special but I believe it is the light of God or the Love of God flowing forth when allowed.

So I have one question for you; is your face radiant?
