THE THRONE OF GOD

IS GOD ONE DIVINE PERSON OR THREE?



Chapter 1


ONE DIVINE PERSON IS SEATED ON THE THRONE OF GOD


OLD TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES



2 Chronicles 18:18 “… hear the word of Yahweh; I saw Yahweh SITTING UPON HIS THRONE,


and all the host of heaven standing on his right hand and on his left.”


Ezekiel 10:1 “Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head of the


cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the appearance of the


likeness of A THRONE.”









Isaiah 6:1 “In the year that King Uzziah died I saw also the Lord SITTING ON A THRONE,


high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.”


Isaiah 66:1 “Thus says the LORD [Yahweh], Heaven is MY THRONE, and the earth is my


footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?”



Psalm 47:8 “God reigns over the heathen: God sits upon THE THRONE of his holiness.”


Psalm 103:19 “The LORD [Yahweh] has established HIS THRONE in heaven, and his


kingdom rules over all.”






NEW TESTAMENT SCRIPTURES


Revelation 4:9 “Whenever the living creatures give glory, honor and thanks to HIM WHO


SITS ON THE THRONE and who lives for ever and ever …”


Revelation 4:10 “The twenty-four elders fall down before HIM WHO SITS ON THE


THRONE, and worship him who lives for ever and ever. They lay their crowns before


THE THRONE …” The Bible NEVER uses the plural word “thrones” when referencing the


throne of the one true God, no not even once! God’s Word ALWAYS speaks of only ONE


THRONE and only ONE DIVINE PERSON SEATED UPON THAT THRONE! 2 Chronicles


18:18 clearly states that all the host of heaven [the angelic host], stand on His right hand


and upon His left. The words, “His right hand” and His “left” hand speaks of God as One


Individual Divine Person on one single Throne rather than two or three separate and


distinct divine persons on more than one throne.










Whenever God speaks of Himself anthropomorphically [with human attributes], He


always speaks of Himself as a single divine person rather than two or three divine


persons. God’s Word NEVER speaks of two or three thrones where the Most High is


seated. This is not what we would expect if God really is three separate and distinct


Almighty divine Persons who are completely coequal and coeternal with each other.










Chapter 2


THE BIBLE SAYS THAT GOD IS ONE PERSON


Since there is only One Throne spoken of in scripture and only One Divine Person seated


upon that throne, the Lord our God has to be only One Divine Person. Yet naïve Trinitarians


will often claim that the scriptures never say that God is one “person.” Therefore they


insist that God could be three divine persons even though there is only One Throne


of God. However, just as God is not spoken of in scripture as a “person” so the original


languages of the Bible never use the word for “person” when referencing people either.


From Genesis to Revelation we never find the word “person” used to describe people


like Adam, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Mary, or Peter, James, or John.


Therefore the Trinitarian claim that God might be more than one person because the


word person is not used in scripture is very misleading.











Although the Bible does not use the singular word “person” when referencing the one


true God, it does use similar words in Hebrew and Greek that do mean the same thing as


the English word person. In order to rightly divide the word of truth, we must ask what


words Hebrew and Greek speaking people used to describe a person that would indicate
