Eternal Dignitaries of the Trinity

Quote:”The Eternal Dignitaries of the Trinity.–The eternal heavenly dignitaries–God, and Christ, and the Holy Spirit–arming them [the disciples] with more than mortal energy, . . .” {Ellen White Evangelism 616}

Firstly “the eternal dignitaries of the trinity” looks nice, it’s all capitalized but it is totally uninspired. Let’s re-read the quote.Ellen White Trinity

“The eternal heavenly dignitaries–God, and Christ, and the Holy Spirit–arming them [the disciples] with more than mortal energy, . . .” {Ev 616.4}

It would be great to see the entire context of this quote outside of Evangelism. However just from what we can see it refers to “God”, “Christ” and “the Holy Spirit”.

“God” is distinct from his son, and his spirit in this quote. This to me indicates that the title “God” in this quote refers to the father alone.

I don’t think that we can read into this quote “God the father, son and holy spirit, and Christ and the Holy Spirit”. The title God refers alone to the father in this quote and as far as can be seen in not Trinitarian at all.
