YAHWEH & YAHSHUA Are They One and the Same Being? By Voy Wilks, Cisco, Texas
There are many reasons why we cannot, we must not, accept the view that Yahweh and Yahshua are one and the same being, usually called the "Oneness Doctrine." One of the most obvious reasons this can not be true is as follows:
Many Scriptures indicate Yahshua had a heavenly Father, known as Yahweh. These and many other Scriptures indicate the heavenly Father had a Son, known as Yahshua, If they were (are) one and the same being, then Yahshua did not really have a heavenly Father at all. There is no Father in heaven. If there is no Father in Heaven, then there also is no Son, as there of necessity be a Father, or else there can not be a Son. So - if those two are one and the same being, then there is neither a heavenly Father nor a Son of the heavenly Father. If this is true, much of Yahshua's talk was only a farce in which there was no truth at all. The reson being, he so often refered to his Fatrher, who did not exist, if he himself was (is) Yahweh.
Paul spoke of some unwise people who "... exchanged the glory of the immortal Yahweh for images ..." (Rom. 1:22). We fall into a similar situation if we seek to exchange the "Ever Existing One" (Yahweh the Father) for a "non-existent one."
People love to make a mystery out of the plainest, the simplest Scriptures. This is a mistake. It is generally true in Scriptures, just as in detective work, that the simplest and most obvious answer is usually the correct one. When Yahshua said he had a heavenly Father, we should believe this to be accually true - as factual history. When Scritures tell us that Yahshua was "declared to be the Son of Yahweh by his resurrection from the dead (Rom. 1:4), we should believe this as well. We must not make myths of the message of the Scriptures, The true religion is reasonable, sensible, and therefore "according to the Scriptures." We must not mutilate the Scriptures nor their meaning.

John 3:17 - Yahweh sent his Son into the world. Did Yahweh send himself?

John 17:4 - I glorified you on earth, and finished the work you gave me to do.
John 17:5 - Now Father glorify me.
John 17:11 - Father keep my disciples, that they may be ONE AS WE ARE ONE. Comment: Yahshua and his Father were "one" just as the 12 Apostles were to be "one;" that is, "one in purpose and doctrine."
John 17:18 - As YOU sent ME, so I send them into the world.
John 17:21 - That they may all be one in US; you and I.
John 17:22 - The Apostles may be one as WE are ONE. Were the 12 Apostles only one person, rather than 12 persons? Just as the Apostles were 12 individual persons, but with one goal, so the heavenly Father and his Son were two individual persons with one goal.

Scripturally speaking, we are not asked to believe "Jesus is God", but that Yahshua is the son of Father Yahweh and the promised Messiah (anointed of Father Yahweh).
And we believe and are sure that you are that Messiah [anointed one of Father Yahweh], the son of the living Yahweh (Yahchanan [John] 6:69).
I believe that you are the Messiah [anointed one], the son of Yahweh, which should come into the world (Yahchanan [John] 11:27).
But these are written, that you might believe that Yahshua uis the Messaih [anointed one], the son of Yahweh; and that believing you might have life through his name (Yahchanan [John] 20:31).
And Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, you may. And he answered and said, I believe that Yahshua Messiah is the son of Yahweh (Acts 8:37).
These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the son of Yahweh; that yo may know that you have eternal life, and that yo may believe on the name of the son of Yahweh (1 Yahchanan [John] 5:13).
Nowhere in any so called "Holy Bible" translation are we asked or taught to believe "Jesus is God" nor did Yahshua ever proclaim "I am God."
When one comes to me and says "Jesus is God" I challenge them to show
me from any Bible translation where it actually says this or Yahshua
actually saying "I am God". I know for a fact that they will not find
either of these quotes found proceeding from Father Yahweh's mouth that
we are to live by and am reassured that what they are saying is
nothing but a perpetuated and deceptive lie.
