    Grammar Reveals the Nature of Divinity
    In grammar a compound subject or object requires a plural pronoun.
    Example: Friends of Bob and Bill will work with them.
    Bob and Bill (compound object) requires “them” (plural pronoun) rather than “him.”
    The pronoun “them” refers to Bob and Bill.
    It is incorrect grammar to use “him” in place of “them.”
    Incorrect example: Friends of Bob and Bill will work with him.

    In The Revelation the Apostle John records such a use of incorrect grammar to reveal the correct nature of divinity.
    Revelation 20:6 ESV
    Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.

    Correct grammar requires that for the compound objects, “of God” and “of Christ,” the plural pronoun “them” be used rather than the singular pronoun “him” which was recorded by the Apostle John. This seems to be a theological acknowledgement that the essence the Godhead is singular while revealing the Godhead is plural in number.

    In The Revelation 22:3 the Apostle John repeats this grammatical incorrectness for the compound objects, “of God” and “of the Lamb.” The plural pronoun “them” is not used but rather than the singular pronoun “him” is used again. Either the grammar of the Apostle John is incorrect or there is an intentional acknowledgement that the Godhead is singular even though plural in number.

    Revelation 22:3 ESV
    No longer will there be anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the Lamb will be in it, and his servants will worship him.
    Glen has made an astute observation, but it seems he did not read his own article. The use of the word HIM proves that God is ONE just as Jesus told us. If God was plural then the word used would be THEM instead of HIM.

    Isaiah 9:6 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

    6 For unto us a child is born, and unto us a Son is given: and the government is upon his shoulder, and he shall call his name, Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The prince of peace

    The everlasting Father - everlasting means the child born unto us always was the Father and always will be The Father.

    Isaiah 43

    3 For I am the Lord your God,
    the Holy One of Israel, your Savior;

    10 “You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord,
    “and my servant whom I have chosen,
    so that you may know and believe me
    and understand that I am he.
    Before me no god was formed,
    nor will there be one after me.

    11I, even I, am the Lord,
    and apart from me there is no savior.

    Deut 6

    4 Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.
    The Greatest Commandment

    Mark 12
    28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, “Of all the commandments, which is the most important?”

    29 “The most important one,” answered Jesus, “is this: ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one.

    I do not see how God could be more clear. He clearly says He is not plural, for one is not plural, but He is ONE.

    As to His Manhood, Jesus is a little lower than the angels, let alone God. He was born of a woman and the only BEGOTTEN Son of God. But as to His Godhood, Jesus is the Father and the one and only God Almighty. This is how Jesus can truthfully say He is the First, and He is The Lord of all Lords, and The King of all Kings.

      This comment on Facbook:

      Tom Maloney Its very easy to miss little things because we think they are little. It keeps us from seeing true things because of it. And this might be the most important topic of all. God is one, not 3 or 2, or any other number.

      Lou Newton It was the Man who calls himself, Pope, who started the Trinity Doctrine. The original Athanasian creed stated that "there is Father, The Son and The Holy Spirit, but He is NOT three but ONE". God never refers to Himself as three even one place in the original Hebrew or Greek scriptures. But He calls Himself ONE too many places to count.
