The Two, Who get the job done
Genesis 28:15 - And, behold, I (am) with thee, and will keep thee in all (places) whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; for I will not leave thee, until I have done that which I have spoken to thee of.
When God spoke to Jacob in his dream and reiterated the promise which He had given to Abraham the words 'Jehovah' (singular) and 'Elohiym' (plural) is used. The Trinity is no longer a mystery for me; the word 'God' refers to the Body of God the Father. He is the Head of this Body, the Spirit of God and the Son of God are a part of this Spiritual Body. One can not separate One from Another, even though They are individual yet one. Man would wonder how that is? Let me tell you if it was simple to understand God then He would cease to be God. Also keep in mind, in scriptures Jesus (man) referred to the Spirit of God also as Father because as man He was born of the Spirit.
God the Son and the Spirit of God are in the forefront of the salvation of man. This was manifested clearly in exodus of Israel which is a shadow of the redeeming of the real God's people. In the book of Exodus one would clearly see 2 individuals leading the Israelites. Sometimes referred to as God, sometime as Pillar of cloud or fire or even referred as Angel (the word 'Angel' means an individual with a mission to deliver a message or to do a job).
Even today it is the 2 of Them (the Son and Spirit) Who work in us and through us to deliver us from our sinful nature and bring us unto God the Father and then making us a part of the Body of the Son (being married unto the Son mean being unified into a common body).
