Heb. 1:8 is far from a trinity proof!
Well that's not the discussion, here, really. The discussion is whether Jesus is God or not. And He most assuredly is. In Hebrews 1:8-9, the writer is directly quoting from a Psalm (45:6-7) which extols the Davidic king, and only Jesus, as the Davidic Messiah -- the annointed One -- truly meets this description, since by reigning at the Father's right hand (Hebrews 1:3, 13) He possesses an eternal kingdom forever and ever and reigns in true righteousness (Hebrews 4:15, 7:26-28). The messianic Son is rightfully also called God, in this case by God the Father in Psalm 45:6 and thus Hebrews 1:8 -- as in John 1:1, 18... John 20:28... Romans 9:5... Titus 2:13... and 2 Peter 1:1.

To your statement, though, Hebrews 1:8 absolutely does indicate that God is at least a duality.

Grace and peace to you, Tigger2.

Jehovah is the Supreme Being, above everyone including Jesus Christ. He is the One who brought Jesus into existence, and the One who taught Jesus everything Jesus knows. Jehovah is the One who instructed Jesus about what to do and what to say. Jehovah anointed Jesus to be the future King of this planet, ousting all human governments. Jehovah is our loving Father and the Designer of everything good that has happened to mankind and that which is still to happen.

Am I right that it is plain to see that Jehovah and Jesus are two different persons? It is evident in Psalm 110:

"The utterance of Jehovah to my Lord [Jesus] is: 'Sit at my right hand until I place your enemies as a stool for your feet.' The rod of your strength Jehovah will send out of Zion, saying: 'Go subduing in the midst of your enemies.'" (Psalm 110:1,2; NWT, Young's Literal Translation, American Standard)

Then at Isaiah 61 we see two separate Persons again:

"The spirit of the Sovereign Lord Jehovah is upon me [Jesus], for the reason that Jehovah has anointed me to tell the good news to the meek ones. He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to those taken captive and the wide opening of the eyes even to the prisoners..." (Isaiah 61:1)

Of course there are hundreds of other examples of the Scriptures showing us the difference between Jehovah and Jesus, but even just these two suffice to show us that Jehovah is not Jesus. Does anyone agree?
