Because God wills to manifest Himself in 3 ways, or 10, or 1000, or ONE, doesn’t make Him that many persons. “Hear, O Israel, the Lord your God is ONE Lord.”
He can also manifest Himself in many presentations simultaneously, but He remains One Lord. Who spoke to and by Isaiah declaring there was only One Lord and One Savior, and no other?
Isaiah 43:11 (KJV)
I, even I, AM the Lord ; and beside Me there is no Saviour.
Isaiah 59:16 (MKJV)
And He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor. Therefore His own arm brought salvation to Him; and His righteousness sustained Him.
Was it the Father speaking to him or the Son? Which?
I’ll tell you something else. If I pray to God, and HE answers me, who is it that answers? They or He? When in the early seventies, I cried out to the Only Name under Heaven whereby I could be and was saved, Jesus Christ, who answered me? Jesus Christ did.
And with Thomas, I cried out, “My Lord and my God,” and He not only did not correct or rebuke me, but He also SAVED ME. Jesus Christ, the One Who spoke to Isaiah saved me, He and He Alone, the One God of Israel and of the universe.
I could introduce you to my physical son. But in another manner of speaking, I could also give you an image of myself and call that manifestation of me, "my son." If I gave you a video of me, which you can find on YouTube, I might say, "That's my 'son,' in that you have an image or representation of me. But God, being Almighty, can give you not only a mere picture of Himself, but a Living Man made in His image, introduced into this world through a miraculous birth by a virgin, and call Himself, "My Son."
A reader asks us, "Why does the truth hurt so much?"

The law has been replaced by grace Matthew 5:17-20 MKJV (17) Do not think that I have come to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy but to fulfill. (18) For truly I say to you, Till the heaven and the earth pass away, not one jot or one tittle shall in any way pass from the Law until all is fulfilled. (19) Therefore whoever shall relax one of these commandments, the least, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven. (20) For I say to you that unless your righteousness shall exceed that of the scribes and Pharisees, you shall in no case enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. 1 Timothy 1:8-11 MKJV (8) But we know that the Law is good if a man uses it lawfully, (9) knowing this, that the Law is not made for a righteous one, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10) for fornicators, for homosexuals, for slave-traders, for liars, for perjurers, and a...
