God is a Spiritual Being and His Spirit is Holy. His Word was wrapped in flesh and blood as was born of the Virgin Mary in order to fulfill His plan for the reconciliation, redemption and restoration of His people.
Therefore, Jesus Messiah (Yeshua Hamashiach) was and is the image of the invisible G-d, the firstborn of every creature - a look at Colossians 1:15. Read more...
The Biblical Names, Titles, and Descriptors for God
According to the Holy Bible there are only two names for God—the personal names, Yahweh (Jehovah) and Jesus (Yeshua). Other references are either descriptors or titles that help us to understand the essence of His being, character, and nature. Read more...
Biblical affirmation of the 'Oneness' of God is first found in Deuteronomy 6:4. This chapter and verse in Hebrew is known as the Shema Yisrael, which means "Hear, O Israel: Yahweh our God, Yahweh is One."
In the New Covenant, Jesus confirms the Oneness of God when He quoted Mark 12:29. The Apostle Paul affirmed the Oneness of God in verses such as Ephesians 4:6.

The Plurality of God's Oneness - The Royal We
From a grammatical perspective the title 'Elohim' is a noun for the word 'gods' or 'deities'. In Biblical Hebrew, however, the ending 'im' is considered masculine plural.
When referring to the 'Hebrew God', 'Elohim' is singular, because it is considered a singular verb or adjective called the plural of majesty. The Old Covenant makes reference to Elohim more than 2500 times.
Genesis 1:26 reads, “Then God said, ‘Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’” Genesis 3:22 reiterates, “And the LORD God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us.’” There are other passages in the Old Testament in which God refers to Himself using plural constructions. There cannot be more than one God because this mindset undermines Scripture. For example, Isaiah 45 states that “I am the LORD, and there is no other; there is no God besides Me” (verses 5, 6, and 18).
God is Not a Man That He Should Lie
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."
Another use of the 'plural of majesty' can also be found in the Old Testament. In Genesis 11:7 God says, "Come, let us go down and there confuse their language, so that they may not understand one another's speech."
His Words speak of His sovereignty using a plural pronoun. This type of speech is also used by royal families.
In summation, Genesis 1:26, 3:22, 11:7, and Isaiah 6:8 it would appear that the Lord was speaking to the Angels when He used the plural pronoun. All other Scripture points to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit as one in the same being.
All other Scripture reveals God's nature, character, and will as one in Messiah just as we are called to be one in Messiah - both the Jew and the Gentiles who by His Amazing grace were grafted into the Body of Christ.
The Oneness or Unity of the Body of Christ
As such, the principle of the plurality pronoun is at work among the brethren as God's perfect plan unfolds as professed by Paul in his letter to the Ephesians 4:4-6.
