1John 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. 7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. 8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

Gary , perhaps you should lock this thread so that it doesn't get out of hand and become a source of contention among brethren. I am in complete agreement with you and everyone of the same mind that the Godhead is three-in-one and right now, I believe the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have their abode in the highest heaven. I believe that God made the angels/messengers to serve Him, but He made man to potentially and eventually be with Him and that by the power of the Holy Spirit, to bond with our human spirit and make us one with Him. In that sense, when we are changed, though we are one with God/Elohim, God/Elohim becomes many/millions/billions?
I wish the label had not been applied.
"Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes him who sent me has eternal life. He does not come into judgment, but has passed from death to life." John 5:24

I apologize if my comments brought contention or anyone to stumble or the concept of the Trinity. I believe that the reason it is such a complex subject is that it is impossible to comprehend the concept because it goes beyond a concept. We are trying to comprehend something infinite with a finite brain. There is no analogy that will suffice our comprehension. It must cross over into the level of faith and revelation.
Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that He exists and that He rewards those who seek Him.
I love analogies because that is just how my mind works... but I have learned that there are a lot of people who do not think or comprehend on that level. This is the job of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is the only one that can reveal these types of truth on a level that we see in the spirit since this is a spiritual principle. Spiritual principles are not something we can completely understand with our mind. It can only be completely understood in the spirit. We can only pray that God would allow the Holy Spirit to comfort & help us in the name of Jesus.
EnochWalked: applieddivinitystudies.com/final-battle/ "The end is coming, are you ready?" A long and philosophical read, but it shows that even secular thinkers have to admit that we are in the final generation, and they can't help but mention God.

EnochWalked: The "divinity" mentioned in the URL, though, I think relates to their idea that humans will become gods, or create (AI) gods. Obviously the writer is confused and wrong about many things but still worth reading. It also compares Covid to alien invasion.

EnochWalked: "There is an important sense of meaning however, which comes not from naive universalism, nor from a hope that we can prevent tragedy, but from the knowledge that we sit between two extremes: eternal death or eternal salvation." So close to understanding.

JamesVa: Everything in my spirit screams at me that this is the final straw. Maybe by the end of the week?

EnochWalked: James: We're in an odd time, and it's hard to imagine them delaying the MotB or 3rd Temple until 2030, but I'm not sure what this week will bring. I note though, that the 9/23 manchild is almost 5 now (if counting from conception). Caught up before vaxxed?

EnochWalked: www.nature.com/articles/s41423-021-00779-5 "The spike protein of SARS-CoV-2 variant A.30 is heavily mutated and evades vaccine-induced antibodies with high efficiency". Maybe the vaccine isn't supposed to work, just show "us" vs "them".
