(A second updated part to my original article written years ago on Trinity vs Echad - See original article here)
Yah is not a “trinity”. He does indeed manifest as the Father, the Son, the Ruach, a pillar of fire, a pillar of smoke, a burning bush, and so many other ways.
Yah is ONE in the echad sense. He can be the Father in Heaven and the Son on earth at the same time. Oh how great is Yah!
Isaiah 9:6 declares that Yah is the “Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, Mighty Yah.”
In the first chapter of Hebrews we read YHVH, speaking to His Son, declaring, “You, o Son, art Yah”.
In Zechariah 12 we read, as YHVH speaks, that they will see “Me whom they pierced”.
In the vision of Ezekiel, we see the awesome resplendent glory of YAH — the Father in all His Glory — and yet, in His Bosom, we see the Likeness of Man — Yahshua. This very Image of the Father, is He who has always been with the Father since eternity past. This is the very Word who, 2000 years ago, took on flesh in Miriam’s womb and walked the earth as the Torah clothed in Flesh.
Yahshua gave up His heavenly power for a period of time on earth, becoming just like us, tempted with all sin and yet He never once yielded to sin. He always obeyed Yah, He always obeyed the Torah.
Yahshua returned to the very bosom of the Father — and indeed Him sitting on the right hand of the Father is literally saying Yahshua is the Father’s RIGHT HAND that brought Him justice and mercy, when He could not find anyone else to bring it.
Yahshua, the Prince of Peace, the Everlasting Father — Yah’s expressed Image in the Flesh! HallaluYAH!!!
Yah says I am the First and Last, the Great I AM. Yahshua also declares, “Before Avraham was, I AM." Yahshua declares in Revelation that He "is the First and Last.”
In Isaiah 42 YHVH says He shall share His Glory with NO MAN. Yet in John 17 we read the Son asking the Father to glorify the Son with the Father. Because the Son is YAH!!!
We also see a beautiful thing. YHVH will share that same glory with those who trust in Him and keep His Word, His Testimony, covered by His Blood, because we will be given the honor of sitting in His Very Throne — for one day we will not be as men, but as the angels, and even crowned above them — oh how GREAT IS YAH!!!!
One day, Yahshua, after the 1000 year reign, will deliver up the Kingdom to His Father, which means rather than us just beholding Yah in His Expressed Image in the Likeness of a Man, we will, in the 8th millennium, see the fullness of Yahshua in all the Glory of the Father — and we will no longer need a Temple, for Yahshua will be the Temple therein! — in fact the verse in Rev 21:22 literally reads — “And I saw no temple therein: for YHVH Yah Almighty and the Lamb ARE THE TEMPLE OF IT!!!!”
Wow. How beautiful and glorious is our great YAH!!!!!
