The Triune God passed through a process from being merely God without humanity to His entering into humanity and being mingled with humanity as one. Then He passed through human living and an all-inclusive death and enetered into the all-producing resurrection, producing the firstborn Son of God.
The Triune God has passed through a kind of preparation from the Father as the Source, the Son as the Course and the Holy Spirit as the transmission and the flow of what God is into man. The goal of the process through which the Triune God has passed is to dispense Himself as the life giving Spirit into man to be the divine life and life supply to man.
Think of the power plant of electricity. The power plant in the distance is the source of the electrical power. The cables which stretch over the countryside from the power plant to your home is the course of the electrical power. It is the cables that connect your home to the source of the power. Then there is the flow of electricity. There is the transmission of the power from the plant, over the cables, and into your home. This is like the Holy Spirit -.
God the Father is the Source of the divine life. God the Son is the Course of the divine life connecting the human believers to the Divine Life. The Holy Spirit is the flow, the dispensing of the Divine Life into the believers.
In this way of God being triune He imparts His element of eternal life from Himself into man. This is that God and man may be mingled and united together.
