Holy Scripture Reading, John 1: 14, ESV.

February 27, 2017

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1: 14, ESV)

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, (face to face), and the Word was God.” (John 1: 1)  HE is the only One eternally with God, as the Son (in the bosom of the Father), and the Spirit is the Person and Love of the Father and the Son; the eternality of the Godhead: Father, Son, Holy Spirit. One personal and triune God. The three persons in the Trinity are accepted as coequal, eternally self-existent, and mutually indwelling.

  1. Both Christ as the Eternal Son, and Holy Spirit proceeding alone from the Father! (John 14: 26 ; 15: 26)

    • This is part of the monarchy of the Father, the First Person of the Triune God.

      • And yes, I follow the general teachings of the Eastern Orthodox on the Trinity of God creedally, as some Anglicans have in the past also.

        *The Christian pastor-teacher is always historically a Churchman, but to my mind in the essence of the Reformational & Reformed Church, but this does always include some aspect of catholicity, or the Church Catholic (though NOT Roman Catholic per se, i.e. intrinsically). There can be NO Infallibility in the Visible Church! And yes, this surely includes the EO,”no” Church Infallibility here either. The true Church always resides in a sinful world, and is a Church of Sinners itself.

        *The only infallibility is in the Word (Logos) and the Utterance (Rhema) of God! Both have the whole matter and revelation of God in Christ! – And here is both the written Word and Gospel of God itself.

      • “The intrinsic bond between the Word of God and the Holy Spirit is theologically presupposed when the Holy Scripture is concerned, the Spirit has bound himself irrevocably to his Word! The true Church visible and spiritual is bound here! For as John wrote, the Word is the “Logos”, John 1: 1, as too the “Rhema”, the spoken Word in speech or writing, both in the singular and the plural, 2 Cor. 13: 1-4.” (Fr. R.)
