The Grab Bag is here, late, but here.
Is Patience a Virtue?
Luke 8: 43-46
43 And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,
44 Came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
45 And Jesus said, Who touched me? When all denied, Peter and they that were with him said, Master, the multitude throng thee and press thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me?
46 And Jesus said, Somebody hath touched me: for I perceive that virtue is gone out of me.
Here Virtue heals a woman.
A virtuous woman is a crown to her husband: but she that maketh ashamed is as rottenness in his bones.
Here it’s a woman who is pure and clean.
2 Peter 1:3-8
3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:
4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
5 And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness;
7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Here you add it to your faith.
So, to understand what patience is, you need to understand virtue. All of this explains virtue to be a “pureness” aspect. A woman was purified from touching Jesus’ clothes, and it healed her. A pure woman is a crown to her husband. So, what is patience? It’s an attribute. Virtue is also an attribute. Attribute’s of God. God is Holy. Then having holiness is having the attributes of God. Virtue and Patience are two attributes of God, listed among others.
What were the number of each animal, which went into the ark Noah built?
2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
So, seven of every clean beast an and two of every beast not clean.
Does Matthew 28:19 mean there is such thing as a Trinity?
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Trinity by definition means three persons. In this verse, it specifically says “name”, which is singular. The name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost would then be the same name. This means one name for all of the titles.
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Here, are a few of the other titles which describe the son which is born.
So the answer to the question here is, “No”. There is no such thing as Trinity.
