Your understanding is false!
The WORD wasn't a distinct Person as God in John 1:1. That's the error of Trinitarianism. Since the beginning of creation, God has two realities - as Transcendent and in Immanent creation. The WORD is in created realm. God Transcendent is inaccessible and has no form, no voice. What the prophets and the fathers in the OT witnessed only to The WORD who prefigured Yahusha Messiah in Theophanies and all Anthromorphism.
Yahuah appeared to them in front of a Man. Moses even testifies to Yahuah being a Man of War in Exod 4:22.
In fact, Adam was created in His image and likeness as man.
Rom 5: 14
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over them that had not sinned after the similitude of Adam's
transgression, who is the FIGURE of him that was to come
'Figure' according to LXX Greek dictionary is from Hebrew word translated in English as 'IMAGE' as in Gen 1:26 (Gr: Tupos, Heb: Tselem).
That's the reason Apostle Paul says in Col 1:15 that 'He is the FIRSTBORN over all creation.
All things were created in Him and through Him and for Him. In Him all things hold together.
The WORD was still Spirit- prefiguring the form of Man in OT based on Whom Adam was created in His image.
The same was made flesh in fulfillment - Tabernacled in midst of Israel as Immanuel - God with us.
We have now God in human form permanently where no one distinguish between God and Man. You take away His Body, then there is no recognition of Him being God.
He is the face of The Transcendent Father:
Philip said to Him, “Master, show us the Father
, and it is enough for us.”
יהושע said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Fathe
r, and how do you say, ‘Show us the Father’?
His sinlessness or holiness depict characteristics of transcendent God. That's why His birth was entirely Supernatural with His Body prepared in heaven.
We have two witnesses of The Spirit: Outward witness of Him being Come in flesh and inward witness within His Body which was Spirit transcripted Body:
This is the One that came by water and blood: יהושע Messiah, not only by water, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the Truth
(And) there are three who bear witness:
8 the Spirit, and the water, and the blood. And the three are in agreement
V6 is outside witness and v7-8 is inward witness.
Again, there is no Godman in scripture. It's your rebellion over scriptures that you bring your false Theology.
1John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, that which we have heard
, that which we have seen with our eyes, that which we saw, and our hands touched
, concerning the Word of life.
This is the witness of the Apostles.
