Welcome to this series of presentations called The Nature of God. These presentations are the result of an extensive journey to prove whether or not Yeshua is God.
The content of these presentations is what YHVH has shown me over a long period of time. I know that for many people, they see something different. However, I’d like you to give me a chance, so you can see what I see because there really may be something here that you’ve not seen before.
The conclusions I’ve reached on this subject are based on the many things that I’ve looked at, including the meaning of certain Greek and Hebrew words in the Scriptural text; context; literary structure; Greek Grammar; Early Church Fathers; history of the Ecumenical creeds; Scriptural patterns; titles for God; an anthropomorphism; and things God has personally shown me; as well as how I see how everything fits together.
Regardless of whether or not people agree on the nature of God, everyone should be willing to examine and calmly discuss and explore this hotly debated topic. I have read a variety of posts on this subject in a Facebook group, and I’m shocked by the type of comments people post on this subject. In the end, people may have to agree to disagree. It is my hope and prayer that this can be done in a kind and loving way.
The Ecumenical Creeds — This presentation shares the texts of the Nicene Creed, Apostles’ Creed, and Athanasian Creed, and it also shares some of the reason for the Nicene Creed’s development, as well as the shocking results that took place after it was written. Last edited 2/13/2020.
The Nature of God, One But Different — This presentation takes us on a journey that includes a review of the Shema; definitions of Unitarianism, Binitarianism, and Trinitarianism; reasons people give for claiming Yeshua is not God; quotes from Early Church Fathers regarding the nature of God; the anthropomorphism — the arm of YHVH; the pattern of the nature of God; and Scriptures throughout the Tanakh and Apostolic Scriptures regarding the nature and titles of God.

Understanding John 1:1-2, Is Yeshua God or a god? — This presentation is divided into three parts. Part 1 looks at the chiasm of John 1:1-2. Part 2 looks at advanced Greek grammar and syntax for John 1:1-2, specifically Colwell’s Construction, as well as how Theos is used in the rest of John chapter one. Part 3 looks at the Logos in the Apostolic Scriptures, the Tanakh, and the Targum Onkelos. Last edited 11/27/2019.
Our God and Savior Yeshua Messiah — This presentation reviews the Granville Sharp Rule from Greek Grammar Beyond the Basics, An Exegetical Syntax of the New Testament to demonstrate that the English translations of Titus 2:13 and 2 Peter 1:1, which equate God with our Savior Yeshua Messiah, are valid. The construction presented in this rule is found in 80 other instances in the Apostolic Scriptures. Last edited 11/29/2019.
Genealogy of Yeshua — This presentation looks at the reason Eusebius gives for the differences in the genealogies of Yeshua found in Matthew 1:1-17 and Luke 3:23-38. Last edited 11/30/2019.
God’s Nature in the Blood — This presentation recaps the picture of God described as an egg in Understanding John 1:1-2, Is Yeshua God or a god? Then, it presents how God’s nature is revealed in peripheral blood cells — red cells, white cells, and platelets. It closes with the purpose of blood — for atonement. Last edited 1/30/20.
