It takes a certain amount of faith to understand how this situation of humanity's conundrum of misunderstanding spiritual things gets out of hand. The main point is this; debating Truth is impossible; only in the arguments of not believing is there food for debate; all else is futility. Thus is articulated in the Tanakh, where the full description of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob is considered in the unsearchable realms far beyond any imagination that humanity can reach. It is written in the Torah and Tanakh that the Eternal Sovereign is Spirit.
That being the case, Who did Adam, the first human, communicate with? After, Who created the first woman?
Was it spirit: or? To answer that requires faith, such as Abraham had and he responded to the Eternal Sovereign. Later, when the Torah spoke of the visitors to Abraham's tent, Who was that? The promise of Isaac occurred then: Whose promise was that?
When the Jewish maiden Mary, was promised Emmanuel, Whose Promise was that? Was it not made by the Same Individual that promised Abraham through the messenger?
Later promises were and are made by the Same individual in faith and in faith these are received. He promised the Holy Spirit as a later Comforter when He is put to death and later rose from the dead; it is not so written?
The Tanakh refers to the Holy One of Israel; Who is that? Is this not the One that was promised to Mary?
Is this not the One that faced the religious leaders in Jerusalem and whom the religious leaders brought before the Roman Governor to execute their desires of pride in having Him crucified?
And after death, He is risen, according to the promises; are they not so written?
So, Who are the Father that the Savior spoke of and the Holy Spirit He spoke of? Which One is the Holy One of Israel as written of in the Tanakh? Are there not three? Be careful on how to answer.
