The Trinity and the Word בראשית

Psalm 118:22-23 - The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief cornerstone - Mark 12:10-11
This is the LORD's doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.

Genesis 1:1

בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ

The Trinity
According to scripture, there was a word uttered, which has been secret from the foundation of the world (Matthew 13:35). Though despised and rejected by rabbis and Bible translators, God knows the word is בראשית (bar resh sheet), the first Word in the Hebrew Bible. This Word is the name of the Trinity. The word appears hidden yet it is quite visible, a secret but in plain sight. Condemned to be a temporal word (usually interpreted "in the beginning"); rather it is the name of the Creator and in the most obvious place, yet all bypass it like it is invisible.

The Trinity is the first Word of the Hebrew Bible, בראשית (bar resh sheet). Exactly where it should be, at the door, in the gate, speaking to all who enter (Proverbs 8:1-22).

Reading Genesis 1:1 plainly, straight forward, and literally states: "בראשית (bar resh sheet) created powers, the heavens, and the earth." This plain reading reveals the Word בראשית (bar resh sheet) was the supreme Creator and God.

The Word בראשית (bar resh sheet) is also composed of the meaningful words בר (bar) meaning "Son" (Psalm 2:12), ראש (resh) meaning "Head" as of all kingdoms (Joshua 11:10), like the Father, and שית (sheet) meaning the "Garment" as of the Spirit (Psalm 73:6). Thus the Word is what all Christians have longed for, knowledge of the Trinity, both visual and Biblical, because the Word is composed of all three in one, Father, Son, and Spirit, all included, intermingled, yet separate. Many Christians for millennia have sensed in their spirit, confirmed by coalescing multiple Biblical verses, the truth of the Trinity. Hope has been their guide. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. The evidence is clear, the first word of the Bible, בראשית (bar resh sheet) represents the Trinity.

One Word, including all three, Father, Son, and Spirit, powerful and mighty, is the Trinity.

This same Word is also referred to by the Word in John 1:1.

In a manner of speaking, in Matthew 1:18,23 it is said Mary was with child, meaning the child was within her. Since the Word was the Trinity, and the Father being within the Trinity Word, it can be, and it is written, that the Word was "with God". Thus, in John 1:1, it is written "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God".

Temporal vs. Eternal
The Word, בראשית (bar resh sheet), is God's name, the name of the Supreme Creator, and by rightly dividing composed of the Trinity. Yet the Word has been traditionally and almost universally translated as a temporal phrase. We should know from 2 Corinthians 4:18 that, "While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal". Yet all, Jew and Gentile, including Christians have been taught to see only a temporal word rather than the eternal One.

Deceit by the Devil has caused the Word to be bypassed as the name of God. In Genesis 1:1, the third word, אלהים (elohym), has been falsely assumed by rabbis and Bible translators, in that verse, to be a pseudonym for יהוה (Yahweh). Because of that false assumption, it would appear Baresheet created יהוה (Yahweh), an impossibility because יהוה (Yahweh) is not a created being. Deceived, they condemned, killed, and buried the Word of God hiding it under the guise of a common, temporal word.

They know אלהים (elohym) is a generic word, defined by context, and though most often assumed to be a pseudonym for יהוה (Yahweh), many times, as if in lower case, also representing created beings or things believed to be powerful. Instead of letting אלהים (elohym) in Gen 1:1 represent other powers, created ones, yet undefined, including angels, seraphim, and cherubim, they falsely teach it must be יהוה (Yahweh).

This has been recounted even as far back as around 250 BC when rabbis were requested to translate the Bible for the first time, into what is now known as the Septuagint. Due to taking the supposition as sacred fact, בראשית (bar resh sheet), the Word of God, was forced to be rejected, killed, buried, and taught to be a temporal word. However, the syntax of the word בראשית (bar resh sheet) when interpreted as a temporal phrase in Genesis 1:1 is problematic and has yet to have consensus among scholars. This treatment of the Trinity is the same as how religious leaders condemned Jesus to be a temporal man, rejected, crucified, and buried. But they are mistaken, for the Word is resurrection and life.

Only by faith is Jesus recognized, so it is with the Word of God, בראשית (bar resh sheet), the Trinity.

Jesus is the Way to the Father and eternal life. No person gets to know the Father but by Jesus. By denying Jesus, a person denies the way to the Father.

A person may imagine heaven and eternal life with God is possible without Jesus, but justification comes through belief. It is faith and love in Jesus, His eternal life, and what He did for us through the cross and resurrection, by which we enter. The same is true about the Word. A person may imagine the knowledge and wisdom of the Bible is possible without the Word, but it's the Word that opens the door. It is faith and love in the Word, the Trinity.

The Trinity was in the beginning as a word and shared with us through the Bible. He is the Way to the Bible. No one gets to know the Bible but by Him. Do not people (including for example, Jews and Christians) appear to know the Bible, but do not do what is written, or receive the wonderful promises therein. God gave the Word of God for believers.

A person must be born again to believe in Jesus, without which there is no salvation. Likewise a person must believe the Word בראשית (bar resh sheet), is the Trinity and alive. Then the Bible words will root in a person's heart and grow.

Some words in the Bible speak of refuge, healing, wisdom, knowledge. God is good and supplies that which we need and want. However a person believing in the Word of God, בראשית (bar resh sheet), in His rejection, crucifixion, burial, and resurrection receives the Bible as truth, without doubt, born into the Word. It's the same as with believing Jesus. There is no salvation without belief. The Trinity has given us His name and Word, which when we believe, the Bible will manifest in us.

Genesis 1:1 would read בראשית (bar resh sheet) created powers, the heaven and the earth; or as Christians would say Trinity created powers, the heaven, and the earth.

Until the Word was made flesh, the Trinity was not a mainstream Jewish concept, if at all. In those days, Jews who did not believe Jesus was Messiah considered Him to be only a temporal man, and בראשית (bar resh sheet) to be only a temporal word. Neither one did they consider to be God. They rejected both, בראשית (bar resh sheet) the name of the eternal God before he came into the world, and Jesus the name of God after he came. Both the same one, God, before and after, despised and rejected, esteemed not, hiding our faces from him, his chastisement brought us peace, he opened not his mouth, he was cut off from the land of the living, buried, the Word and the man.

Many names in the Bible are composed of meaningful words expressing the person's attributes and בראשית (bar resh sheet) is no different. The Word is composed of ב meaning "In" (Proverbs 1:21) and ראשית (resheet) meaning "beginning" (Proverbs 1:7), thus the meaning "in the beginning" which also represents an attribute of God. He, the Word, was in the beginning, as first in time.

God made the Word secret, just like when Jesus came in the flesh was a secret hidden from the religious leaders. That story can be found in the "Mystery" section of this report.

Aside from the 3 attributes, Father, Son, and Spirit, there were personality traits described in the Trinity Word. These can be found in the "Inside the Word" section of this report.

A study of Hebrew grammar in interpreting Genesis 1:1, as well as, historical supporting documentation, and other references are provided in the "Report" section of this report.

For thousands of years, Jewish and Christian translators have bypassed the door of the Bible, the Word, entering some other way, missing the meaning of Genesis 1:1 and stumbling over the rock, thereby rejecting the stone who has become the chief cornerstone.
