Humanity Does Not Dictate Who the LORD IS

in response to reader comment: All humanity can share in this celebration of the Infinite

For Eternal Consideration:

As much as humanity would like to share an equal footing of which 'deity' might be the preferred entity to which all homage and servitude is directed, you will observe that in this world, no such compassion of spiritual endeavor exists or can be commonly shared. It is this intransigence that is seen, especially in the Middle East, where all such things will be delivered into the hands of judgment, at the future Temple.
To your expression here:
[The God of Israel is the Infinite. All humanity can share in this celebration of the Infinite.] This is the one way that can be the basis of full understanding.
Otherwise, the 'evolutionary' development of 'deities' that has been the bane of mankind's search for spiritual relevance since the incident in ancient Babel is one of a search in futility, of vanity; the real reason being that there are no other true multiple or singular deities who have any proven individual way leading to eternal life. The rules for such an existence are singularly dictated by the One true Deity, HaShem, the Holy One of Israel.
All others are a result of tribal factiousness over the millennia in which the sons of Adam sought to reconnect what was lost in the garden; but too many differing ideas of darkened interpretations intervened. Even after the admonitions of Yeshua to be obedient to the love of God, 'Christianity' must recognize that exceptionality by rejecting the various religious attempts to 'modernize' the relationship to Jesus Christ in anti-Semitic distancing of His quote: "salvation is of the Jews;" read Zechariah, commencing from chapter 8 to the end.
The only way humanity can regain spiritual connectivity (and there is only one corporate way to achieve such, by redemption through the Holy One of Israel; Isaiah chapters commencing from 42 through 54) brings one to desiring the worship that will occur with the Temple being the focus of the LORD's return to Zion. No other religious aspiration will ever lead to that, let alone recognize that the Savior (Yeshua) of Israel is the Savior of all who repent and believe on the only Name given above all names.
The final conclusion is that the Holy One of Israel does not share His assertion of being the only Deity in the Universe that anyone can describe Him in any fashion they so desire. Humanity does not dictate the way to eternity. It is the lesson Israel is being taught now; and it will be the only way to truth that is now on the horizon to lead up to the restoration of Temple worship.
