The Holy Trinity in Eternal Life

At the end of the ages Christ will come in the glo­ry of God the Father, He will make the Father known through­out all cre­ation. The Holy Spir­it will fill all things and enable all to be in union with God through Christ for eter­ni­ty. Again we have the pres­ence and action of the Holy Trinity.

What we know and expe­ri­ence now in the world as mem­bers of the Church will be man­i­fest­ed in pow­er in the life of the king­dom to come. The essence of life ever­last­ing is the life of the Holy Trin­i­ty, the same eter­nal life giv­en to us already in the mys­tery of faith.

And I saw no tem­ple in the city, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb (Christ) are the tem­ple of it. And the city had no need of the sun … for the glo­ry of God did light­en it, and the Lamb (Christ) is the light thereof…

And the throne of God and the Lamb (Christ) shall be in it, and his ser­vants shall see him … and they shall see his face…

And the Spir­it and the Bride (the Church) say Come!

(Rev 21:22; 22:3, 17)

In the eter­nal life of the King­dom of God, the Holy Trin­i­ty will fill all cre­ation: the Father through the Son in the Holy Spir­it. Every man enlight­ened by Christ in the Spir­it will know the invis­i­ble Father. “And this is eter­nal life, that they may know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent” (Jn 17:3). Such knowl­edge is pos­si­ble only by the indwelling of the Spir­it of God, “the full­ness of Him who fills all in all” (Eph 1:23; 2:22).

Come O Ye Peo­ple! Let us adore the Three-Per­son­al God­head, the Son in the Father with the Holy Spirit.

For before all time the Father gave birth to the Son, co-eter­nal and co-enthroned with Himself.

And the Holy Spir­it was in the Father, glo­ri­fied with the Son.

Ador­ing One Pow­er, One Essence, One Divin­i­ty, let us cry:

O Holy God who made all things by the Son through the coop­er­a­tion of the Holy Spirit!

O Holy Mighty through whom we know the Father and through whom the Holy Spir­it comes ino the world!

O Holy Immor­tal, the Spir­it, the Com­forter, who pro­ceeds from the Father and rests in the Son!

O Most Holy Trin­i­ty! Glo­ry to Thee!

(The Ves­pers of Pentecost)
