Chapter 1.2: Working of the Trinity
1.2 Working of the Trinity
There is a specific order1 of authority and work in the Trinity. The Father is the greatest2,
Jesus sat down in His throne and was given dominion, and the Holy
Spirit is performing the transformation work with you. While each
member of the Trinity is equal with each other3,
God is not the author of confusion. Without a level of authority
and system of work responsibilities, there is always confusion.
I Cor 12:4-6
The Trinity works much like a cooperation:
Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.
And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.
And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all.
Father (God-v6) is the Chief Executive Officer, who decides what the
company's line of business is, and generally how it is going to
will notice that the Motivational gifts in Romans 12:3-8 are given by
God - the Father to motivate you to work in the company to help
accomplish the overall plan.
(Lord-v5) works as the administrator or mediator and head over all
things. His job is to see that the actual goals are accomplished.
Holy Spirit acts as a first line supervisor, or your immediate
boss. He recruits for the company, trains you, equips you with
the necessary tools (gifts), and supervises and directs your activities.
The Five Fold Ministry gifts in Eph 4:8-16 are given by Jesus.
The five fold perform the administration work of equipping and training
the Body to go forth with the gospel.
The Charismatic gifts in 1 Cor 12:7-11 are given by the Holy Spirit to
equip the believer with the necessary tools to do the actual work.
