Who Is This God?

“The chariots of God are twenty thousand thousand Angels, and the Lord is among them, as in the Sanctuary of Sinai. Thou art gone up on high: Thou hast led captivity captive, and received gifts for men [see also vs. 29]: yea, even the rebellious hast Thou led, that the Lord God might dwell there. Praised be the Lord, even the God of our salvation, which ladeth us daily with benefits...O God, Thou art terrible out of Thine holy places: the God of Israel is He that giveth strength and power unto the people: praised be God” (Psalm 68:17-19,35, Geneva Bible). Who is this capturing God Who has taken us captive, Who receives the world in victory to give us benefits, strength, and power? Praise Him, for He is God in three Persons, blessed Trinity...

...He is Spirit, Father, Christ...three Persons and one God: “...walk worthy of the vocation whereunto ye are called, with all humbleness of mind, and meekness, with long suffering, supporting one another through love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your vocation. There is one Lord, one Faith, one Baptism. One God and Father of all, which is above all, and through all, and in you all. But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Wherefore He saith, ‘When He ascended upon high, He led captivity captive, and gave gifts unto men’” (Ephesians 4:1-8, quoting Psalm 68:18).
