"Hear O' Israel, YHWH our God, YHWH is One."(Deuteronomy 6:4)
We believe in the Eternal Self-Existent "One" and it is to Him we lift up our voices and all of our being in exaltation. We give glory and honor, and all of our praise and thanksgiving to the One True-and-Living God. Who was, Who is, and Who shall always be (YHWH). YHWH as revealed unto Moses (Exodus 3:15) is "The God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and God of Jacob" And YHWH said: "this is My name forever and My memorial unto all generations".
He indeed is The Creator, Maker, Owner and Possessor of everything that has ever come into being in the entire universe (Genesis 1:1-11:32). The Great and Almighty Sustainer of every living creature, He is The Father of all the children of man.
"Yea, before the day was I am He; and there is none that can deliver out of My hand: I will work, and who shall let it?" (Isaiah 43:13)
"Thus saith YHWH, thy redeemer, and He that formed thee from the womb, I am YHWH that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the heavens alone; that spreadeth abroad the earth by Myself;" (Isaiah 44:24)
YHWH (The Eternal) is the Creator of time and space (durations and boundaries). He has appointed the rise and fall of every empire from antiquity up to the present and beyond, including the length of their stay in power upon the stage of human history, as well as the extent of their domain (their borders). It is YHWH who has set these in motion before the foundations of the world:
"Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them." (Isaiah 42:9)
"Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times the things that are not yet done" (Isaiah 46:10)
The Torah, found in the five books of Moses, is the word and the wisdom of God. It is also the greatest living document reflecting the love of God for all of mankind that has ever come into being. By the Law, YHWH reveals to man the essential practices of perfection, holiness, beauty, righteousness, mercy, truth, goodness, purity, power and love. These righteous attributes could have never been discovered by the power of the sinful and fallen human intellect. We certainly would have never known that-"The fear of YHWH is the beginning of wisdom", or that, to transgress against the law of God, would produce all manner of evil and negative repercussions. Evil is in essence, the very opposite of what the Creator desires for us.
Today, we can witness for ourselves the level of pestilence, disease, drug and alcohol abuse, murders, premature deaths of youth, war, natural & supernatural disaster, and more.
"Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?" (Ezekiel 33:11)
The Creator has given His children the law of truth and planted everlasting life in our midst. God's word has been given to us by the hand of Moses and the rest of the great prophets in the form of the Torah and the Holy Scriptures. Its purpose is that we may learn and know His will and repent from our negative lifestyles. We praise YHWH the Eternal God of our forefathers Abraham, Isaac and Jacob whose name He changed Israel. It is Him and Him alone we acknowledge and praise forever.
