People use monstrous images to represent God and the Lord, it is only logical that they, being perfect eternally, would be two handsome fellas.
Hebrew Yahweh (YHWH, יהוה), Greek Iaua
Revelation Chapter 19
Greek Ἁλληλουιά· Praise Yahweh!
Our Father is warm, funny, loving, and wonderful to know. His dream is to fill the Earth with happy healthy people. And it will happen, His Son shares his vision for people. He believes in it so much He was willing to die to make it happen.
Our Father could not risk Our lives, or the life of His Son, because the scripture says “his spirit goes out, he goes back to his ground”. If he had become only flesh for us, all His memories of 20 billion people and His Son might be lost. Also, God needed to be alive to restore Y’shu’s countless eons of memories and His life. Otherwise they might be lost. Also, God has a perfect memory but can’t remember a beginning, therefore He has always existed. If He has always existed, then it is logical that He always will exist. Therefore he likely could not die and be the ransom sacrifice we so desperately needed. But He would have done it in a heartbeat if it was possible.
God’s Name is Yahweh in Hebrew
Physical Evidence c. 860 B.C.E. Meshe Stele (Moabite Stone)
As seen on the Mesha Stele (YYHWH). The Mesha Stele (also known as the “Moabite Stone”) is a stele (inscribed stone) set up around 840 BCE by King Mesha of Moab (a kingdom located in modern Jordan). Note the extra yohdh outside the drawn circle, confirms the pronunciation of YHWH as Yahweh ייהוה

The “a” vowel in the first syllable is quite secure. We know this because an abbreviated form of the divine name (“Yah” – always vocalized with “a”) appears in the Hebrew Bible nearly 50 times, mostly in Psalms (e.g., Exod 15:2; Exod 17:16 – note, this is the same book as the longer form; Isa 12:2; Isa 26:4 – along with the longer form; Psa 68:5; Psa 68:19). The most familiar form to readers is no doubt the phrase halelû-Yah (“praise Yah!”; e.g., Psa 146:10; Psa 147: 1).
The real controversial part of all this for scholars comes with the second syllable (scholars lead exciting lives). Here’s what must be accounted for:
1. The form itself must be the imperfect conjugation, since the “y” of the first syllable is prefixed to the verb root (hyh/hwh).
2. The first syllable must have an a-class vowel (“yah”) to account for the abbreviated form of the name noted above.
3. The second syllable must be an i-class vowel because of the verb root (lemma). The ancient Semitic root hwy also requires an i-class vowel in the second syllable.
There is only one morphological verb formation (parsing) that makes sense of these elements: Hiphil stem, third person, singular, imperfect conjugation, from hyh/hwh. This form is vocalized yahyeh / yahweh and would mean “he who causes to be” (the Hiphil is a causative stem in Hebrew). This is controversial because the verb hyh/hwh does not appear in the Hiphil causative stem elsewhere. Hence scholars are uneasy about taking the divine name this way. Personally, the logic here doesn’t feel compelling to me. I;m not sure why it’s necessary to have a verb form appear elsewhere for it to be considered coherent where it does / might occur. I understand the desire for another example, but it is not a logical necessity if it makes sense. And in the context of Israel’s God in effect creating a nation out of the slave population of Israel, it makes good theological / conceptual sense. But I’m in the minority here, probably because of the (in my view, overly cautious and logically unnecessary) desire for an external example of this lemma in this stem.

Y’shu has told you how much He loves you by dying for you in the flesh. But look! He is alive again, and once again living His parallel existence with Our Father.
Ezekiel 38:23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD. (King James Version KJV)
We have been given the name of Our Father in Hebrew, Yahweh ( YHWH)
Acts 2:34 reads as follows in the King James Version (KJV)
Acts 2:34 For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand,
Yahweh said unto Y’shu
This is quoting Psalms 110:1 so therefore LORD in all capital letters is Yahweh.
The preface of many Bibles explains the capitalization of LORD.
Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God*. I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,
Same thing with the capitalization of LORD. “I am Yahweh, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God”
John 13:13 You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am.
When the Father speaks through “The Word”, Y’shu’s Name is Ἰη-σοῦς (pronounced ē-zōs’) “thy God”
ONLY THE WORD, Y’SHU, THE SON OF GOD, COULD ACCOMPLISH EVERYTHING. BECAUSE YAHWEH, GOD ALMIGHTY, WAS NEEDED FOR Y’SHU TO LIVE AGAIN AS HE DID BEFORE IN HEAVEN, IN PARALLEL WITH THE FATHER.
The Holy Spirit of God
Ask God for the Holy Spirit. “The Holy Spirit” is Holy Spirit integrated into a person, it completes them. It is responsive. When we have the Holy Spirit God’s very life is within us. (Ephesians 4:5,6) It is indicated by the pronouns He and Him in the Bible. Body signals govern its operation. It is the wonderful way we are designed. Nothing to worry about.
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
Ephesians 4:5,6 one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all.
The Holy Spirit is responsive. For example if you lie to the Holy Spirit you are lying to God.
Acts 5:3,4 But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? 4 Whiles it remained, was it not thine own*? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God.
