YESHUA AS THE EXACT REFLECTION OF ELOHIM
How can the two Elohim in our Holy Bible become one?
What is the distinction and preeminence between these two divine beings that are both Gods?
The doctrinal belief in the existence of Trinity—three Gods in One—does not stand on solid ground. It has no relation whatsoever in the Oneness of the Father and the Son on this article. Trinity is merely a pagan belief and superstition that originated from Mesopotamia after the death of Nimrod the Great. Semiramis, the wife of Nimrod, had introduced her family as God in three persons. Nimrod, Semiramis and Tammuz (the Son) were the original hypostases in the mystery doctrine of the Triune God known as Trinity. These three personalities are the gods that the Christian people are worshiping.
Rabbi Yeshua and God the Father are not even two integral parts of the Triune God that the religion of Christianity and Messianic Judaism are perpetrating as the concept behind the Trinitarian God of the Bible. There is a preeminence between Abba (God the Father) and His Son whose name is Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus Christ) even if Rabbi Yeshua had almost singlehandedly played the role of the God of the Old Testament.
Consider what the book of Hebrews is saying about Rabbi Yeshua (Jesus Christ).
“He is the reflection of God's glory and bears the impress of God's own being, sustaining all things by his powerful command; and now that he has purged sins away, he has taken his seat at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high. So he is now as far above the angels as the title which he has inherited is higher than their own name” (Hebrew 1:3-4, NJB).
Rabbi Yeshua bears the exact likeness of God the Father—the other God. The pronoun ‘He’ refers to Yeshua the Son while the Divine Majesty on High is none other than God the Father. He is the exact reflection and representation of the invisible God the Father.
Rabbi Yeshua has been sitting at the right hand of the High Majesty in heaven for almost two thousand years now. Indeed, He is the reflection of the other God that no one on earth has seen or heard during Exodus time or at any time in the Old Testament. Our idea of God the Father came from Rabbi Yeshua himself who had revealed His own Father to us in the New Testament writings.
“He is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of all creation;” (Colossians 1:15, RSV).
Rabbi Yeshua is the firstborn among all the children of men. He bears the image or the likeness of our invisible God. God the Father is an invisible God for no one has seen Him. But during New Testament times the gospel books bear witness to the fact that our invisible God had already spoken though no one had seen Him still. The Jews at the Jordan River where John had baptized Yeshua had already heard the voice of God the Father (Matthew 3:17). There were also Jews in Jerusalem during the Feast of Passover that likewise heard the voice of God the Father (John 12:28-30). But essentially God remains invisible though He is no longer unheard of.
“In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the likeness of God” (2 Corinthians 4:4, RSV).
There is something that we are not seeing clearly when it comes to the gospel. Our mind has not completely absorbed and comprehended the implication that Rabbi Yeshua is not merely the Son of God but the same God of the Old Testament. He is not merely a human being in the sense that He is like us, a frail and puny man but He remains one of the two divine beings of the Elohim family. There is nothing that men can do to Him to end His existence.
Even today, many people still think of Rabbi Yeshua as human, like all of us on earth in spite of the fact that He has already been restored to his former glory as the Son of God. That is what He is from the beginning. Yeshua who is now our high priest that sits at the right hand of God in heaven is no longer human like what many are still thinking of Him.
Yeshua is God (Eloah) Himself, and there are two Elohim (Gods) in the family of Elohim (God).
