As this photo of my old 1995 NIV Insight Bible shows, I’ve been intrigued by and been able to understand the additional clarity provided to 1 John 5 vv7-8 many centuries after the Canon of scripture was agreed:
Here’s New King James Version with this clear indication of the dual nature of a heavenly and earthly trinity acting in conjunction to bear witness and ‘operational oversight’ – as I’ll explain below:
The Certainty of God’s Witness
6 This is He who came by water and blood—Jesus Christ; not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear witness [b]in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood; and these three agree as one. [NKJV]
We’ve noticed an increasing number of three-fold ‘God-incidental’ confirmations of whatever I’m blogging and last week three things happened as told in Again 3 contacts in 3 minutes confirm latest prophecies on Trump and Biden. As for dual confirmation or activity, Veronika West noted that’s how the Lord gave an early and then a later word on ‘Humpty Trumpty and Humpty Dumpty’.
More has happened but in a directly personal way, as follows:
On Sunday morning Nina and I were on prayer ministry team and arrived early to pray for the service and leaders. As the team of 3 musicians were practising and I was praying I went to pray for the 3 technicians on the audio-visual equipment and recalled the 1 John 5:7-8 principle to bless their combined operation. Then I was blessed with the insight that the 3 musicians represented the Holy Trinity in heaven, and the 3 technicians represented earthly activity to bring the worship into much wider manifestation – the connection between all six being Holy Spirit.
Tuesday morning we attended a presentation by the 215 years-old Pilgrims’ Friend Society who provide care homes for elderly Christians. Their modus operandi is, I grasped, bringing Kingdom principles into the closing years of these dear folks’ lives. Afterwards, I spoke to a couple of the Society’s national leaders and mentioned in passing; it’s as though they are being prepared for being with the Lord and He will then show them the full tapestry of their lives that He’s been weaving.
LO AND BEHOLD confirmation came again as our sister Veronika posted about THREE and TAPESTRY yesterday (note timing, my birthday number 22):
Read HKP posting > A TAPESTRY OF TIME FROM HEAVEN’S PERSPECTIVE
And not forgetting Deuteronomy 19:15
‘….by the mouth of two or three witnesses the matter shall be established.’
