2 Corinthians 13:14
What does this verse mean?
Chapter 16-1

2 Corinthians 13:14 “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.”

Some claim 2 Corinthians 13:14 supports their belief in a Trinity. But this verse in no way affirms the Trinity doctrine which states that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are three co-equal, co-eternal beings that make up one God.

Nobody denies there is the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit.

2 Corinthians 13:14 does not say they are three beings,

it does not say they are three in one or one in three,

it does not say these three are the Godhead,

it does not say these three are a Trinity,

it does not say these three are co-equal or co-eternal beings,

it does not say that these three are all God.

It is through the Holy Spirit that both the Father and Son make their abode in you. “If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.” John 14:23

“By the Spirit the Father and the Son will come and make their abode with you. [John 14:23 quoted]” — (E.G. White, BEcho, Jan 15, 1893)

The Holy Spirit is the presence and power of the Father manifested through Jesus Christ His begotten son. This is not a separate person of the Godhead who is being sent, it is the very life of God coming to us through His Son.

Do we have the Holy Spirit communing in us as our Comforter and Spirit of truth? Of course! And who is the Holy Spirit in us?

“The HOLY SPIRIT is the SPIRIT of CHRIST, which is sent to all men to give them sufficiency,” — (E.G. White, 14MR 84.3)

“We want the HOLY SPIRIT, which is JESUS CHRIST.” — (Ellen G. White, Lt66, April 10, 1894)

“but it is the leaven of the SPIRIT of JESUS CHRIST, which is sent down from heaven, called the HOLY GHOST,” — (Ellen G. White, Ms36-1891)

When Paul spoke of the communion of the Holy Ghost, he was revealing how our communion would be. It would be by the means of the Holy Spirit that we would commune or have fellowship with God and Jesus Christ.

1 John 1:3 says, “That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.”

According to John, we have fellowship with the Father and with his Son, through the Holy Spirit.
