Yeshua IS God
I’m adding a comment to this post dated July 2015. It is now January 13, 2017. I just left from visitng my favorite girlfriend of whom I met thirty years ago. She was dealt a huge blow of stage-four cancer one year ago. She held strong through it all turning to God for her strength. She could write a long story giving Him all the glory for her healing. She knows that He wants her to LIVE and He is the giver of all life. But, why does this incredibly Godly person get cancer and it took her to the point of…she could no longer even pray. She could almost no longer breathe as the cancer consumed her lungs and she lay in great pain with sleep deprivation. Her daughter sat by her bedside watching her take every breathe in and out and nudging her to see if she was still alive. This was December, 2017.
Now, she is back from the dead, you might say, and declaring His power over her. I add this to this study on ‘Who Is God’ because I just found myself answering her in a long text as we discussed, The Trinity of God. I ask her to review this study of 2015.
What has impressed me since writing this in July 2015 is that I didn’t realize how important of a subject this was. Today, I’m suggesting to her and to you that we take the study on the Oneness of God very seriously. Is there a Trinity or are the Father, Son and Holy Spirit attributes?
It was when Yeshua Jesus declared that he was one with the father, that they killed him. The Jews understood that saying that, meant that he was God. He had taken on human flesh so man could see him and he could become that final sacrifice for the penalty of sin.
Last week, I read that it upsets Muslims very much that Christians have three gods. The Trinity of three in one has been a hard thing to explain and yet I understood it as a Catholic pictured like an egg. One egg that had a shell, egg white and a yoke. It had three items in one thing. That was an easy picture for me as Catholic. As people protested against the ordinances of the Catholic church, that made the church money, The Reformation came about with Martin Luther stating 95 questions he had for The Church of England. The year was 1517…500 years ago exactly this year.
It has taken TEN Jubilees (50 years each) to bring our world back to the question of what Luther left on the table….The Trinity. He didn’t discredit it as he had torn into so many other things that caused people to be burned on stakes. People gave their lives for ‘freedom of religion’.
Today, Christians are being ‘caught unawares’ you could say because the Muslim is upset that they believe in three gods. Christians call it three God-heads. The Son sits on the right hand and the spirit is shown as a ‘bird’ flying around representing the Holy Spirit.
In Judaism they believe in the Oneness of God. This belief makes better sense from The Scriptures when they are read in their entirety. An ‘angel of the LORD’ will show up in the scriptures and men would think, “Who is that?” God would speak from a bush that wouldn’t burn up and men knew it was Yahweh speaking. Jesus spoke that if they looked at him they were also seeing the father. He is quite lengthy in that explanation in John Chapter 18.
After studying the bible for forty years, I have now finally come to see that God manifests himself as He desires. Man even think of God as being male, although some of His attributes declare Him as having female traits…such as the word, ‘El Shaddai’, meaning El (God) Shaddai (breast). Breast represents nourishment, etc.
To shorten this introduction up…let’s just say that I now realize how important it is to understand who God is. He is more than three entities that can’t be explained very well. But, when we take the entire Bible, we can see His attributes showing up in many things…not just three. There is one place that says to be baptized in the name of the father, son and holy spirit. All the other places it is declared to be baptized only in the name of Yeshua the Messiach (Jesus Christ in English). (Did men capitalize father, son and holy spirit or are they God’s attributes in which to be baptized.) Remember, John baptized them to repentance and then Yeshua Jesus came along and baptized them unto ‘salvation.’ Even the name Yeshua means Salvation. That is another topic for another discussion.
The reason we need to make a decision of The Trinity is because it reflects what you think of the God who created you. Is God one entity that designed and controls our universe? Does this Spirit that we can’t see able to have other entities within itself to be able to be present at Creation? Could these forms manifest themselves when needed? Or, do we hold God in a Greek-thinking box and say, “My God can only perform in these shapes.”
The Muslim is looking to destroy the ‘infidel.’ The ‘infidel’ believes in three Gods. Therefore, this infidel is not believing in the one true God…which they have named Allah.
2017 is the 500th Anniversary for The Reformation. 1517 – 2017.
Do we think it’s time to listen to The People of the Book? The Torah was given to the Hebrew…Adom…Noach…and them written down by Mosche at Mt. Sinai 1500 years before Yeshua Christ. Solomon had The Temple and kingdom torn from them in 583 BCE for not following The Torah.
The ‘Suffering Servant (Yeshua)’ came at the 80th Jubilee of the earth and was on the earth in the year 17 AD. 40 Jubilee’s later in the 120th Jubilee of our earth, in the year 2017; we are seeing a change occur on our earth. Our earth is seeking political and religious correctness. Forty is the number of completion as even shown in the three segments of Mosche’s life. Forty years in Egypt, 40 years in Midean and 40 years teaching Torah in the wilderness. We are 40 years from the Suffering Servant and now look to the Second Coming…represented in The King of Kings.
In order for the earth to RETURN to Torah (God’s instructions), a generation of disbelief in The Torah may perish….and as it does, a new generation will be established that believe in the ONENESS of God. They will believe that The Messiach that carries the embodiment of God within Him will save men from their corruption. This next form will appear to be so incredibly majestic that every knee will bow..in the heavens, on the earth and below the earth…. The King of Kings will possess the traits of the Ruach HaChodesh (Head Spirit), the power of a father who directs His children and yet in a form of voices of lightening and burning fire and chariots riding on the wind and horses trampling the earth….many manifestations of power…
May we all be ‘quiet’ within ourselves so we can hear the ‘still voice’ declaring to us, I AM He…sent from the Father of whom I am the Father in full authority to judge the earth and I come in the Spirit of knowledge of good and evil and my eyes are the seven candlesticks that search the earth to see if My Torah is being applied in the earth. These are a few descriptions of The Second Coming describing our God…The Creator of all.
Yes, it is life and death that we are responsible for when we persuade men of our viewpoint of an ‘egg’ on how to understand, The Trinity. It is better that the teachers be quiet and let G-d be G-d….because it is in The Name that we are saved. HaShem (The Name) is all in all of everything that ever was, is or will be.
One last comment is that the gentile is to be grafted into the Jew…not the other way around. The Jew was given The Torah to give to the world. The Gentiles reject Torah and kill the Jew. The haughty Gentiles will be removed because they reject joining Torah…which is believing in The Oneness of God.
It is time to write the thesis of 95 questions once again 500 years later….but his time…it will be about the Oneness of God.

(Isa 7:14 Complete Jewish Bible) Therefore Adonai himself will give you people a sign: the young woman [Or: “the virgin.”] will become pregnant, bear a son and name him `Immanu El [God is with us].
(Isa 9:6 CJB) (9:5) For a child is born to us, a son is given to us; dominion will rest on his shoulders, and he will be given the name Pele-Yo
etz El Gibbor Avi-Ad Sar-Shalom [Wonder of a Counselor, Mighty God, Father of Eternity, Prince of Peace],
(Mic 5:2 CJB) (5:1) But you, Beit-Lechem near Efrat, so small among the clans of Y’hudah, out of you will come forth to me the future ruler of Isra’el, whose origins are far in the past, back in ancient times.
(Joh 1:1 CJB) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
(Joh 1:14 CJB) The Word became a human being and lived with us, and we saw his Sh’khinah, the Sh’khinah of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.
(Joh 1:10 CJB) He was in the world — the world came to be through him — yet the world did not know him.
(Joh 8:24 CJB) This is why I said to you that you will die in your sins; for if you do not trust that I am [who I say I am], you will die in your sins.”
(Joh 8:58 CJB) Yeshua said to them, “Yes, indeed! Before Avraham came into being, I AM!”
(Joh 8:59 CJB) At this, they picked up stones to throw at him; but Yeshua was hidden and left the Temple grounds.
(Joh 14:6 CJB) Yeshua said, “I AM the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me.
(Joh 14:7 CJB) Because you have known me, you will also know my Father; from now on, you do know him — in fact, you have seen him.“
(Joh 14:8 CJB) Philip said to him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it will be enough for us.”
(Joh 14:9 CJB) Yeshua replied to him, “Have I been with you so long without your knowing me, Philip? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
(Joh 14:10 CJB) Don’t you believe that I am united with the Father, and the Father united with me? What I am telling you, I am not saying on my own initiative; the Father living in me is doing his own works.
(Joh 14:11 CJB) Trust me, that I am united with the Father, and the Father united with me. But if you can’t, then trust because of the works themselves.
(1Ti 3:16 CJB) Great beyond all question is the formerly hidden truth underlying our faith: He was manifested physically and proved righteous spiritually, seen by angels and proclaimed among the nations, trusted throughout the world and raised up in glory to heaven.
(2Co 5:19 CJB) which is that God in the Messiah was reconciling mankind to himself, not counting their sins against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation.
Luke 22:69 Hereafter shall the Son of man sit on the right hand of the power of God
|70 Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.|
71 And they said, What need we any further witness? for we ourselves have heard of his own mouth.
The Jewish leaders were upset because Yeshua agreed with their accusation. Son of God meant, God to them. Today, men call themselves, sons of God. This is true when we accept Messiah Yeshua’s blood as the way of eternal salvation. But, don’t misconstrue the meaning of, ‘The Son of God’. Do not numb down the description of Yeshua as The Only Begotten Son of God. The Jews knew what, Son of God meant. Yeshua was equally yoked with God.
Yeshua came in the flesh. He was tempted and had angels to assist him. He felt the pain of his friends disappointment in him. They blamed him for Lazarus death. He cried because they did NOT believe in His powers as God. His brothers followed other teachers when he followed closer to the School of Hillel.
He felt his students (talmedeem) selfishness as they only sought after their own welfare in wanting to sit on his right and left in the Kingdom. They had no empathy with the suffering through crucifixion he was about to endure. He himself was from a sect of the Pharisees and would be stoned by the leaders. Now, He would feel the loss from the Father of whom could not look upon him who bore ALL sin. He felt the loss of the Father as he was separated from Him at his persecution and death from an unfair trial. But he was silent as a lamb so it could be accomplished what had been spoken on Him since creation. This separation would have been harder than the bloody scourge he endured. He did not sense his equality with God as pride even though he was equal.
GOD and Yeshua (Jesus) are One
Joh 10:28 and I give them eternal life. They will absolutely never be destroyed, and no one will snatch them from my hands.
Yeshua is expressing His authority as God in this statement.
Joh 10:29 My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; and no one can snatch them from the Father’s hands.
Joh 10:30 I and the Father are one.”
Joh 10:31 Once again the Judeans picked up rocks in order to stone him.
Joh 10:32 Yeshua answered them, “You have seen me do many good deeds that reflect the Father’s power; for which one of these deeds are you stoning me?”
Joh 10:33 The Judeans replied, “We are not stoning you for any good deed, but for blasphemy — because you, who are only a man, are making yourself out to be God [Hebrew: Elohim].”
Joh 10:34 Yeshua answered them, “Isn’t it written in your Torah, ‘I have said, “You people are Elohim’ “?
Joh 10:35 If he called ‘elohim’ the people to whom the word of Elohim was addressed (and the Tanakh cannot be broken),
Joh 10:36 then are you telling the one whom the Father set apart as holy and sent into the world, ‘You are committing blasphemy,’ just because I said, ‘I am a son of Elohim’?
Joh 10:37 “If I am not doing deeds that reflect my Father’s power, don’t trust me.
Joh 10:38 But if I am, then, even if you don’t trust me, trust the deeds; so that you may understand once and for all that the Father is united with me, and I am united with the Father.”
Joh 10:39 One more time they tried to arrest him, but he slipped out of their hands.
They were upset because Yeshua agreed with their accusation. Son of God meant, God to them. Today, men call themselves, sons of God. This is true when we accept Messiah Yeshua’s blood as the way of eternal salvation. But, don’t misconstrue it to mean, ‘The Son of God’. Do not numb down the description of Yeshua as The Only Begotten Son of God. The Jews knew what, ‘Son of God’ meant. Yeshua was equally yoked with God.
God became flesh and was titled, Son of God and Son of man. This Son of God also came back in the form of, The Comforter (Ruach Ha Chodesh); The Head Spirit.
(CJB) ‘Adonai says: “In the Last Days, I will pour out from my Spirit upon everyone. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams.
Yeshua in Completeness of God
Col 2:8 Watch out, so that no one will take you captive by means of philosophy and empty deceit, following human tradition which accords with the elemental spirits of the world but does not accord with the Messiah.
Col 2:9 For in him, bodily, lives the fullness of all that God is.
Col 2:10 And it is in union with him that you have been made full — he is the head of every rule and authority.
Php 2:6 Though he was in the form of God, he did not regard equality with God something to be possessed by force.
Php 2:7 On the contrary, he emptied himself, in that he took the form of a slave by becoming like human beings are. And when he appeared as a human being,
Php 2:8 he humbled himself still more by becoming obedient even to death — death on a stake as a criminal!
