In our first part, “Defining Anti-Messiah – Part 1,” it was proven that if anyone denies that the preexistent Yahushua the messiah was the deity and angel who appeared to Abraham and subsequently came in the flesh by becoming a human, Yahweh considers that person an anti-messiah.
We shall now provide evidence demonstrating that mankind is devoid of any possible salvation without a preexistent Yahushua.
The following doctrinal issues are automatically affected:
1. The doctrine of salvation and eternal life. The denial of one’s salvation by means of Yahushua the messiah.
— Yahushua said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me.” (John 14:6)
Unless the preexistent Yahushua made a Covenant/Will with Abraham, there can be no salvation available to mankind. (See issue #7 below.) Continue reading “Defining Anti-Messiah – Part 2”
The following discussion addresses the scriptural stance regarding those who deny the preexistence of Yahushua the messiah and their association with anti-messiah.
Let us first consult the book of John to investigate Yahushua’s claim to being a preexistent deity and son of Yahweh:
KJV – John 10
— Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. Yahushua answered them, “Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?” The Jews answered him, saying, “For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; AND BECAUSE THAT THOU, BEING A MAN, MAKEST THYSELF θεόν (THEON; DEITY).” (John 10:31-33) Continue reading “Defining Anti-Messiah – Part 1”
As early as about 600 B.C.E., the prophet Jeremiah wrote concerning scribal tampering of Scriptures:
How do you (scribes) say, We are wise, and the laws of Yahweh are with us? Certainly, behold, the pen has practiced deceit, a lie of the scribes. The wise are put to shame; they are terrified and are captured. Behold, the word of Yahweh they have rejected and their wisdom is their own. (Jer. 8:8-9)
There are 134 times when Jewish copyists (Sopherim) of the Masoretic text, believing that certain passages were too often quoted that used the sacred name Yahweh, changed the primitive Hebrew text to read adonai or eloahim instead of Yahweh. Continue reading “The Lying Pen of the Scribes”
After thoroughly scrutinizing Part 1 and Part 2 one should have gotten a fairly good grasp of the direction of our investigation.
This last installment is where it will all come together and you should have a much better understanding of “Yahweh eloahim.”
The most difficult concept for many bible students to grasp is the fact that the Hebrew term “Yahweh eloahim” is not limited to father Yahweh or even to those known by the name Yahweh who are leaders in the eloahim.
The collective noun nature of the term eloahim makes Yahweh a family name. As noted in Part 2, this detail is specifically mentioned by the book of Ephesians:
For this cause I bow my knees to THE FATHER of our sovereign, Yahushua the messiah, FROM WHOM the whole family in the heavens and upon the earth is named. (Eph. 3:14-15).

After your perusing of Part 1 we are now ready for the next installment of our investigation regarding the issue of the possibility of more than one Yahweh in Scriptures.
Picking up from where we left off in Part 1 what we want to do next is to recognize that the true nature of Yahweh eloahim is revealed by the evidence that eloahim is the generic term for a family of ruach beings headed by a supreme eloah named Yahweh.
The subordinates and supernumeraries within this family are in Hebrew often individually referred to as a מלאך (malak), plural מלאכים (malakim), translated into Greek as ἄγγελος (angelos), and into English as “angel.”
A malak is someone you “despatch as a deputy; a messenger,” especially an “ambassador” sent by Yahweh. The word is applied to both ruach beings (angels) and humans, although each case is easily distinguished by its context. Originally, it was an office one holds and not a generic term.

How many are aware of the fact that Scriptures indicate that there is more than one personality that is referred to as Yahweh?
Strange as it may seem, when one examines the evidence contained in Scriptures, it will reveal a surprising truth that many have never considered.
Simply put, the evidence will divulge that there are plural individuals in Scriptures referred to as Yahweh!
This concept will be demonstrated by addressing the issues surrounding the Hebrew generic terms representing “deity” and “divinity.”
We’re going to start by examining the singular form אלה (eloah), its common usage as the plural אלהי (eloahi) and as the collective noun אלהים (eloahim), as well as the scriptural concept behind the expression “Yahweh eloahim.”
Let’s proceed onward to examine the evidence. Continue reading “Multiple Yahwehs Revealed – Part 1”
