In June of 2022 I spoke for five days on the Godhead beliefs of Seventh-day Adventists at the Michigan Camp Meeting held at Great Lakes Adventist Academy in Cedar Lake, Michigan. The following links allow you to download the line-numbered handout documents that were followed in the course of those meetings. You will want to visit the Godhead section of discipleheart to find other resources on this important topic.
The first study looks at the attributes of the Father, the role of Christ in representing and communicating with humankind on behalf of the Father, and some of what the Bible says relative to the Father's love for humankind.
The second study on Christ, the eternal, self-existent, co-equal, Divine Saviour, provides compelling evidence for the Deity of Christ, and features over three hundred texts establishing His eternal and self-existent personhood in the Godhead. Among the lines of evidence are Christ’s appropriation of the title “I AM,” four irrefutable evidences cited by Christ early in His ministry, further supernatural evidence during His earthly sojourn, Christ’s identification as God throughout the Scriptures, Christ’s communicative role in the Old Testament, Christ accepting the worship of many individuals during His time on earth, the command to worship the creator at the end of time, welcoming Christ as God at the time of the second coming, Christ being the object of many prophecies that were fulfilled in His time on earth, His many supernatural works, Christ’s many claims that only Deity could make and Christ's many assurances that only Deity could give. Attention is then given to evidence in the Bible and the Spirit of Prophecy for His being a distinct Person of the Godhead, His pre-existence and everlasting life, His self-existence and equality with God, what Ellen White believed on the subject—irrefutable proof, His non-communicable attributes, His transformative work in our days, His welcoming our prayers and His soon return. There are very helpful footnotes that provide further clarification.
This Bible study, an addendum to the study on Christ, carefully looks at what the Bible says about Christ's eternal existence, as well as exhaustively examines what Ellen White says on the subject. I believe every statement she makes on the eternal duration of Christ's life is listed. You will be very blessed looking at this study. The evidence eternal, "everlasting to everlasting" existence is overwhelming.
The third study on the Holy Spirit, Christ’s Representative, Successor, distinct Person and Member of the Eternal Godhead, provides compelling evidence for the Deity of the Holy Spirit. Lines of evidence include the uncommunicable attributes of the Holy Spirit, the presence of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament, in the life of Christ, in the teachings of Christ, in the promises fulfilled in the early church and in the writings following the book of Acts. Two sections look at the many actions of the Holy Spirit that only a person could have done, and actions that only a God could have done. More than 200 Scripture references are cited—some duplicated—in making the case.
In the seminar in Michigan we used a slightly different edition on the Holy Spirit that was identified as GCS instead of GCSc. The difference is miniscule. The lines numbers are the same, but the page numbers are slightly off. Download booklet GCS pdf here
The final study, the “Eternal Three,” and “The LORD our God, the LORD is one,” first looks at the many times the three members of the Godhead are mentioned in the Old Testament and the New Testament together, and the little known but many wonderful “Three” statements—“heavenly Trio,” “Heavenly dignitaries,” “Highest powers in heaven,” etc.—in the writings of Ellen White. The evidence is overwhelmingly in favor of three Deities in the Godhead. The study also looks at “our LORD is one” in Deuteronomy 6:4, giving compelling reasons why we can accurately speak of three persons and at the same time speak of one God. 2022l Edition
