The Tanakh (aka the O.T.) agrees with the New Testament in context, when it comes to the discription of El Shaddai (God Almighty). Here we will use all modern translations to exspress what the scriptures are revealing about the Godhead. The term "trinity" creats confussion seeing as it is seen differently by so many. I encourage people to use the biblical terms.
*אֱלהִים Elohim is One Hebrew term translated as "God" in the Tanakh.Elohim is the Plural form of El ("God") and or Eloah, and means Devine Judgement. (singular in context)/ Throughout the Word Elohim is to mention a Oneness. This is what many consider as the Many Membered body of truth. These members are Instruments of the Holy Spirit of truth as they submit to the will of Almighty Falther (Ex.7:1-2 Notice the mention of YHVH, Moses and Aaron) (Rom.1:5).
Sh'ma Yis'ra'eil Adonai Eloheinu Adonai echad. "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:"
The LORD in all his offices is ONE LORD.
The Israelites were given a pure (Basic) description of YHVH. The Hebrew uses many names and titles when referring to The Almighty and each shows a different relation (office) of YHVH. The sacrid name wasn't used by Abraham, Isaac, or Jacob- Ex.6:3 ! Instead they used the title El Shaddai -God Almighty.
Notice the word translated to "One" is Echad! The Hebrew could have allowed for solitary "yachid" or "bad" to say "one", instead the Unified "echad" was used! (example- Gen.2:24) This is the essence of the sacrid name. What was the Message given to Moses when he asked who shall I say sent me? (Ex.3:13,14).אהיה אשר אהיה
Ehyeh asher ehyeh / #1961/ #834/ which is to say:
* Christ quoted the Sh'ma- Mk.12:29/
* Jn.4:24 - God is aSpirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
* Compare the Sh'ma to 1 Jn.5:7 - "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit: and these three are one."
Notice The Unified Oneness? Here we are given the detailed discription of Elohim, and YHVH is revealing Himself to those with spiritual eyes and ears (Jn.1:1,2,3,4,5) in such a simple way that the verse supports what they have exsperianced. Others may ask, why the mention of three? (1 Father, 1 Word, 1 Holy Spirit- 1 Elohim). Who wouldnt be interested in all the attributes (relationships/ offices) of YHVH in detail?
*יהוה /The Almighty Father - The Source Of all things, The Omnipotent, Omnipresent One. Constant state of being -everywhere, everytime. I would be mentioning the Father if I said: He whose will shall be done.
Matthew 6:(9-13 )/ Christ demonstrates prayer/ After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever.(Lk.11:2-4) Mal.1:11 (Eph.5:21) One should be able to see the basics of the commandments and The reason we were created (Rev.4:11) all summed up in this prayer. True believers with a relationship with YHVH pray in Spirit to the Father, for Christians this is often done in the name of The Messiah to show that we embrace The Passover.
*The Word/ Yeshua Ha'mashiach/ Jesus/ Immanuel/ Emmanuel/ Christos/ The annointed One/ Lamb/ Yehoshua (Joshua) (J)Yehoshuah/ Hosea/ Hoshea/ Osea/ Oshea/ King of kings, and Lord of lords/ Shepherd/ The Light/ the Way/ The Tree of Life/ Rock/ Vine/ Prince/ (Melchizedec, Melchisedec- For those who embrace the earth ages (Jn.8:58)- Angel of The LORD), Rabbi / Prophet/ For the Spiritual to interact with the physical in a physical (spiritual) way a vechile is used (example: flesh). Hands represent works, and the right hand good works. Yeshua (Jesus) is known as The Right Hand Of God Ps. 110/ Matt.22:24/ Eze.36:29, Rom.1:3,4 (Immanuel- God with us- Is.7:14, Matt.1:23). (Jn.1:14, Jn.1:1, Rev.19:13, (Is.40:5), Is.9:6)
Yahshua /Yeshua (Salvation of Yah, savior of God, my savior is God, God saves) / Ex.23:20-23/ "my name is in him" (Emmanuel)
Ps.119:155- "Salvation is far from the wicked : for they seek not thy statutes."/ Salvation - here is- Yeshua- Hebrew name of Jesus! (Matt.7:23)
Many cant see past the flesh of Christ (Jn.3:3,6,8,12). To them I would ask, how does a vigin concieve and bring forth a child? By devine intervention (Son of God) We are told man consist of both flesh and Spirit (Gen.2:7/ 1 Cor.15/ 2 Cor.5/ Ecc.12). They are one in Spirit (Jn.10:30), and Christ came in the exact image of the Father (Jn.14:9), not to do his own will. The body of Christ is the temple of YHVH. Christians dont worship the temple they worship what the temple stands for. The temple is grounded on the Works of YHVH not man.
(Lord- Appendix 98 VI http://www.biblestudysite.com/98.htm< Also checkout the Greek term theos which is translated "God", it's a general term that requires one to still understand the details found in the Hebrew.)
Not everyone that claims the name Jesus will be saved- Matt.7:21-22 / Even the demons believe in God- James 2:19/ Jn.5:37/ Jn.6:46/ * Jn.6:44
* Hashem- The Name (Gen.21:33)
We use many (Hebrew) titles to mention "God". Each shows a detailed relation (office/ attribute) of God. Orthadox believers feel The sacrid name is Holy and shouldn't just be uttered in any context by everyone at anytime. Traditional believers are known to alter titles to avoid repetative sounds. Many today seek to cause division and strife based on what is the proper way to mention The Almighty. Personally I feel translations are needed to communicate truth to the nations and when we alter to deny certain titles and names we are limiting who they can relate to in the Word.
* John 3:8- The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit./ Here we are told The Spirit is like unto the wind! You can see the effects of the wind but you can't see the wind (Spirit) with physical eyes! Spirit and works go hand and hand.Matt.7:16,20 / What Else is unseen and can be considered spirit? Positive- Love (heart), Faith, Belief, Intelect (mind) / Negative- ideologies, hate, lust, pride, envy......
*Faith- Heb.11:1,3 (7)- Now faithis the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
* Love-1 Jn.4:7-8 (16)- Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. 8 He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.
I think its safe to say that anyone who has ever shown true love to another has some concept of what it is to be an instrument of God since God is love. This doesnt take away from your loved ones but rather adds to them for what is better than being an instrument of God and embraceing him? The Holy Spirit is Devine: Intelect (TRUTH), Perfect Love, And a relationship to God's will (faith/grace)
Note:The beginning is fear(reverance)- Ps.111:10/ Proverbs 1:7/ Proverbs 9:10 which matures into a loving relationship with God (Perfect Love) 1 Jn.4:18 (1 Jn.4:12/ 1 Jn.2:5/ 2 Cor.13:11) Heb.6 / Joseph had it Gen.41:38
*Monotheistic (Deut.6:4) Ex.20:3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Mal.2:10/ Deut. 4:35/ Ex.8:10/ Is.60:16/2 Kgs.19:19/ Is.37:20/ Is.43:11/ Is.44:6,8/ Is.45:5,6/ Hos.13:4/ Rom.3:30/ Jn.10:30
Jn.3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. REPENT (tree of life)
Elohim - God's will in action (body)The Holy Spirit is present with the Father, The Son, and Spiritual Israel (Gal.3:24-29) and is our bond (comfort/ rest) through the sacrifice.(Jn.4:24/ Jn.6:44). *Reason we were created- REV.4:11
Eze 36:27 And I will put My Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in My statutes, and ye shall keep My judgments, and do them.
*In the Hebrew Scriptures you will also find all three personalities of the Godhead referred to in single passages. Two examples are Isaiah 48:12-16 and 63:7-14.
Eloah- Who is to be worshiped- God in connection with His will rather than power. (first appearance associated with worship Deut.32:15,17)
Feminine and masculine attributes (metaphorical) / (Is.66:13- like a mother in a nurchering way.) comforter (Jer. 31:9/ Is. 63:16/ Is.64:8 like a Father) (Son- Prov. 30:4/ Ps. 2:2,7,12) This has nothing to do with physical gendar. Some seek to make the Godhead resemble pagon theology by claiming the Holy Spirit is the "mother" The Lord the Father, and Christ being the Son. That is ignoring all the scriptures that state Christ was even before his flesh birth, thus makes Elohim rather pagon.
The title Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob knew as mentioning God. Ex.6:3
Almighty, God as source of Grace instead of strength. Giver instead of Creator/ All bountiful/ One of whom if you are seperated unto in a personal relationship shall supply all needs. (first occurance Gen.17:1) Title used in 2 Cor.6:18 (to seperate yourself from the world)/ Ps.91/
The Lord in His relation to the earth and carrying out his blessings in the earth. Closely relates to "Jehovah". form by associating the vowel points of the "Jehovah with Adon.
Rev.1:8 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty. (Is.48:12)
One- unity and commencement/ Eight - new beginnings / I AM , The beginning and End- Is.41:4/ Rev.4:8, Which was is and is to come - Ehyeh asher ehyeh, Almighty - El
Be(come) or am/ depends on the context.
Ex.3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
I Am (Ex.3:14) = hayah-(be or become) to exsist/ Hayah is also a root of "Yehovah" (Gen.21:33) Yah ov-vay (Yahweh) / which by some (orthadox Jews) is pronouned Yehovih (for the reason to resist repetition within the name) which does change context based off traditions of men! (and there is no need in it other than observing traditions of men, because of the context of the scripture)! One way I can mention God is to say -/He of who's will shall be done /over all things/ That is to say the heavenly Father but is not a proper name. However it agrees: I will be(come what I will be(come). I am that I am, He who was is and is to come.
Ehyeh is translated "I will be" many times in the o.T. and again it is proper Hebrew. Example Zec.8:8/ Ex.3:12
Ex.15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. Hebrews 13:8
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. Ecclesiastes 1:9
The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.
"Every seventh letter in the book of Leviticus spells out "Yud" "Heh" "Vav" "Heh" - Yawheh.
There is more to it than just this: In Genesis and Exodus, every 50th letter spells "TORAH" from left to right (toward the book of Leviticus). In Numbers, every 49th letter and in Deuteronomy every 50th also spell "TORAH" from right to left (toward the book of Leviticus).
To summarize: Genesis, Exodus, Numbers and Deuteronomy all use the word "TORAH" to point toward Leviticus, the central book of the Torah. In Leviticus, we see Yahweh."
Israel requested God speak to them through a mediator -Deut. 5:24-27/ Deut. 18:15-18. Moses pleads with the Lord to not destroy the Israelites - Ex.32:9-14. (Moses struck the rock of living waters twice).
