The Triune God is revealed throughout the Bible. God is One yet He has an aspect of three, thus we have the word Triune —ThreeOne. Genesis 1:26 – “God said, Let Us make man in Our image; then 1:27 – “God created man in His own image.” Our image is His image. We cannot explain this in human words but we can praise the Triune God!
If we know the Bible, we can see that the most central and most mysterious point in it is the Divine Trinity. The main and basic structure of this allegory of the New Jerusalem is the Divine Trinity…. Love, light, and life are a few of the many attributes of God’s divine person, but the most basic attribute of God is the Trinity. It is easier to explain what love, light, and grace are as attributes of God, but it is really hard for anyone to define what the Divine Trinity is. The Divine Trinity is the greatest and the basic attribute of God.*
One view of the Trinity, the Triune God, is in John 14. Jesus says, “I am in the Father and the Father is in Me” (v. 10, 11).
The Triune God is clearly seen in New Jerusalem. The city is composed of three materials which represent the Father, the Son, and the Spirit. There are also three gates on each of the four sides of the city. This portrays the Triune God facing every direction on the earth to bring His people into the city.
In New Jerusalem we partake of the Father’s light, the Son’s, the Lamb’s, redemption, and the Spirit’s flowing as the water of life.
