Genesis 1:1
"In the beginning
God (Hebrew: Elohim) created the heaven and the earth."

Genesis 1:2–3
"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And
the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."

Deuteronomy 6:4
"Hear, O Israel:
The Lord our God (Hebrew: Elohim) is one Lord:"

Genesis 1:26
"And
God said, Let US make man in OUR image, after OUR likeness:..."

Isaiah 6:8
"Also I heard the voice of
the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for US? ..."

Psalm 45:6–7
"Thy throne,
O God, is for ever and ever: The sceptre of Thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: Therefore God, thy God, hath anointed Thee With the oil of gladness above thy fellows."

2 Samuel 7:23
"And what one nation in the earth is like Thy people, even like Israel, whom
God went (plural) to redeem for a people to Himself (singular), and to make Him a name, and to do for you great things and terrible, for Thy land, before thy people, which Thou redeemedst to Thee from Egypt, from the nations and their gods?"

Isaiah 48:16
"Come ye near unto me, hear ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; From the time that it was, there am I: And now
the Lord God, and His Spirit, hath sent Me."

The Scriptures reveal and declare the complex, compound and plural Unity of the Person of God.

God's Person in His nature and essence is a Tri-Unity.

This Tri-Unity best explains the revelation of God's Oneness, Purpose and Manifestation of Himself in the Scriptures.

Jewish testimony of the 2nd century:
“Come and see the mystery of the word Elohim: that there are three degrees, and each degree is by itself alone, and yet they are all one, and joined together in one, and are not divided from each other.”

Jewish spiritualist testimony of the 10th century:
“ ‘Hear, O Israel: Jehovah our God, Jehovah is one.’ Why is there need of mentioning the name of God three times in this verse?… The first Jehovah is
the Father above. The second is the stem of Jesse, the Messiah who is to come from the family of Jesse through David. And the third one is the Way which is below (meaning the Holy Spirit who shows us the way) and these three are one.”

1 John 5:7
"For there are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."
