“The persons of the Trinity”
Hear, O Israel: YHWH our Elohim is One YHWH
JUSTICE is what holds the universe together. Justice is the GLUE of Unity. Justice unifies everything together as ONE. Justice is Righteousness in action, it is doing the right thing. The Unity of Justice can NEVER be broken by mankind, regardless of how much we may sin against YHWH and His Mashiyach Yeshua, His Justice Reigns over all the universe. Whether you and I, our community, or our Nation transgresses against Justice, Justice will never bend towards us, or be diminished by us, in the end we will only prove that Justice prevailed against us if we fight it.
Physical matter is subject to the Laws of Justice, physical matter is subject to physical laws and properties. Physical matter shows the nature of Justice and design according to these laws. Physical matter is subject to YHWH because He Created it. Science has even demonstrated that all physical matter is dependant upon energy to maintain it’s form, so in effect, the Forces of YHWH are what keeps the world as we know it together. We can only understand the physical universe by what YHWH has revealed about it, there is much that He has not revealed because physical matter is subject to His Perfection. We can see a uniqueness and predictability within the physical universe, but we should never conclude that we can completely understand the physical universe as YHWH does, the One who created it knows way more about it than the those of us who simply observe it.
The doctrine of the Trinity uses a physical law of numeric value, called a number, and theologians assign this numerical value of three to their doctrine of the Trinity. For some it is a testing truth, a matter of salvation, redemption and deliverance. But, it wasn’t long ago that a man named Marcion left an indelible mark within the Christian world, that formed the basis of the Trinitarian doctrine. Marcion never invented the word Trinity or even the doctrine, he established Christian thinking that was the foundation of the Godhead doctrine. In 144 A.D. in Rome, Marcion began the most influential Christian teaching in the History of Christianity. Marcion believed that there was two unique Gods, the One God was the the God of the “Old Testament”, and Marcion coined the word “Old Testament” and the other God was the God of what Marcion coined the “New Testament”. Look where one man has taken the religious world.
Some of the most highly respected Messianic Jewish leadership today, men like Dr. Arnold Fructenbaum of Ariel Ministries and others have been reduced to teaching that there are “Two Gods”, because they are Christian apologetics who support Marcionite theology. Even some of the brightest men have succumbed to teaching multiple Gods because their peers have concluded it a salvational doctrine. The reality is that anyone who presses into a relationship with YHWH, outside any religious theological agenda will conclude that we’re not having a relationship with “three persons in One” but with One Living Master Creator who reveals Himself as an all-powerful Spirit Being.
Very simply put, in Jewish Hebrew literature the word Elohim is a MAJESTIC PLURAL, that means it is not a numerical plural but one of UNITY. This is not an easy concept for the West to grasp. Shema Yisrael, YHWH Elohenu, YHWH Echad is the basis of Monotheism in Deut. 6:4, “Hear O Israel, YHWH our Elohim (God), YHWH is One”. One means that He is completely unified and self sustained within Himself. He is the Creator and He Created from within Himself. He is One not three, not polytheism which is paganism. Christian theologians are masterful at convoluting basic Monotheistic Truth by having made up the “persons of the Trinity” doctrine, and then calling it a “salvational” issue.
Right off the start we should question the word “persons”. Is YHWH a person like you and I? Of course not? Is the Ruach haKodesh (Set Apart Spirit) a person? No, of course not? Y’shua walked on earth as a person like you and I, but it wasn’t his body (flesh) or even his soul (nephesh) that made him the Mashiyach, rather it is and was the Spirit of YHWH within him. We can’t even look to the “person” of Y’shua for our Salvation because YHWH says that HE IS OUR SALVATION AND THERE IS NONE OTHER!!!
“I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.”
Notice that YHWH placed His salvation in Zion because salvation belongs to Him.
“And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.”
Notice that YHWH brought salvation by His own arm.
“I, even I, am YAHWEH; and beside me there is no saviour.”
There is only ONE Saviour whose Name is YAHWEH, this is why Paul calls the “Godhead” a mystery because we are not to look into numeric elements of YHWH and His Mashiyach but into the Spiritual, Unifying elements. Sadly, most theologians in the West have very little Hebraic and Aramaic content in their thinking, most often they translate or define their Greek ideas and project them over Hebrew words like Elohim. The Trinity doctrine is rooted in paganism, even history shows us that Christians took the Trinity doctrine as a forceful “testing-truth” to murder hundreds of thousands of souls who would not subscribe to it. Today the Trinity doctrine is the single most important Christian theology that divides the Christian camp, the very nature of YHWH and His Mashiyach became a wicked license to make enemies of those who refused to subscribe to it.
Trinity itself became a god. It was and is by the authority of Trinity that Christians are putting people into hell (according to their systematic theologies) it is pure paganism, nothing more, nothing less. For those of you who already understand this consider yourself deeply blessed, no longer must you condemn Monotheist followers of YHWH and His Mashiyach with a pagan theology that has brought untold curses to the fallen Church system. No longer will you judge another human being according to an intellectual doctrine that is not supported in Hebrew or Aramaic, only within the language and values of the Greeks and their polytheistic culture.
There is ONE YHWH who saves and He alone is Elohim. Y’shua is Mashiyach who came in his Father’s Name, who brought deliverance, redemption and salvation according to the Will of YHWH. There are not two Gods or three Gods in one, but One Elohim whose Name is Yahweh. When we pray in the name of Y’shua we acknowledge that Y’shua is the Arm of YHWH, but we don’t worship Y’shua’s flesh, we don’t put up graven images of Y’shua that is paganism. We are instructed to refrain from living the way the world lives and we are instructed to keep the Commandments of YHWH not the commandments of any religious system “about” YHWH and His Mashiyach.
Remember that Mashiyach (messiah) means the “anointed one”, this means that Y’shua received the anointing from his Father Yahweh, and therefore the One who gives the anointing is greater than the one who receives it.
If you are trusting in the Trinity for salvation please reconsider and turn to YHWH. Ask YHWH to reveal Himself to you and study His Word and put your trust in His Word, He will never fail us. We are not to worship a doctrine called “the Trinity” but that is what many Christians are doing when they speak evil of monotheistic followers of YHWH who are putting their trust in Mashiyach Yeshua as YHWH’s salvation revealed.
YHWH be with you,

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers , having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.”
