Did GOD Almighty appear to Abraham as a human being?

Muslims, Jews and Christians all agree that Abraham, peace be upon him, spoke with GOD Almighty.  The Glorious Quran makes it clear that GOD Almighty spoke with Abraham via Angels: 11:69, 11:76, 15:51, 51:24 and others.  Now, whether Abraham spoke with GOD Almighty directly or with the Angel of GOD in the Jewish Scriptures remains debatable.  It remains unclear due to lack of conclusive evidence:

Exodus 6:3
3. I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob as God Almighty, but by my name the LORD I did not make myself fully known to them.

Genesis 18:1
1. The LORD appeared to Abraham near the great trees of Mamre while he was sitting at the entrance to his tent in the heat of the day.

Genesis 17:1
The Covenant of Circumcision
17 When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the Lord appeared to him and said, “I am God Almighty; walk before me faithfully and be blameless.

But how does GOD Almighty "appear", and who really appears?

Exodus 3:1-6
Moses and the Burning Bush
1. Now Moses was tending the flock of Jethro his father-in-law, the priest of Midian, and he led the flock to the far side of the wilderness and came to Horeb, the mountain of God.
2. There the angel of the Lord appeared to him in flames of fire from within a bush. Moses saw that though the bush was on fire it did not burn up.
3. So Moses thought, “I will go over and see this strange sight—why the bush does not burn up.”
4. When the Lord saw that he had gone over to look, God called to him from within the bush, “Moses! Moses!”

And Moses said, “Here I am.”

5. “Do not come any closer,” God said. “Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”
6. Then he said, “I am the God of your father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob.” At this, Moses hid his face, because he was afraid to look at God.

So was this an Angel speaking the Words of GOD Almighty to Moses, Hagar, Abraham and others?  Or was this GOD Almighty manifesting Himself to some people here on earth in a form of fire and human being and other forms?  The Bible is full of hyperboles that are problematic.  It is very difficult to take the Bible's words literally.  So it remains impossible to fully know the true answer to the question from the Jewish scriptures.  The Glorious Quran, again, makes it clear that it was Angels sent: 11:69, 11:76, 15:51, 51:24 and others.  However, the problem here is that trinitarian Christians fall into the following blasphemy:

GOD appeared to people as fire and human.  Therefore, GOD also appeared as Jesus in flesh.

  
There are many problems with this claim:

1-  Even if GOD Almighty appeared as fire and human to Moses, Hagar, Abraham and others, it still does not automatically translate into GOD Almighty is Jesus.

2-  Jesus was called slave of GOD throughout the Old Testament, and one who fears GOD.  Bible translations lie and say "servant" instead.  But the word is ABD, same word used for gentile slaves of the Jews.  A servant can always quit on you and has total free will.  A slave is owned by you and has no free will.  Jesus had no free will.  He was a creation and a slave of GOD Almighty.

3-  Jesus begged GOD through weeping and crying to raise his friend Lazarus from death.  Jesus was powerless and couldn't do a single miracle without GOD Almighty enabling him to do it.  Trinitarians lie when they say Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, therefore he is GOD.  Shows you how really ridiculous and desperate their false religion is.  Jesus never raised Lazarus from death.

4-  Jesus said that out of his own initiative, he can't do anything.

5-  Jesus forbade anyone from calling him ἀγαθόν.  He said it is only for the Supreme GOD Almighty.  He totally rejected being called ἀγαθόν.

6-  Moses was called "the God" [2] of the believers.  Doubting Thomas called Jesus "My lord and my God".  The OT calls every believer "God" and "Son of God".  Jesus even told the people that why do they have a problem with him calling himself [2] "son of God" when the scriptures calls each one of them "God"?

7-  Jesus said only GOD alone knows when the Hour will come.  No one knows, including Jesus (Jesus said about himself this) knows when it will come.

8-  There are hundreds of verses that thoroughly prove that trinity is a blasphemy and a lie:

Is Jesus greater than Adam?

  

Conclusion:

It really doesn't mater at all whether it was GOD Almighty Himself that appeared to some of His creations or it was an Angel speaking His Holy Words.  I can not conclusively prove it for either argument.  However, what we clearly and thoroughly see is that Isa (eesa), peace be upon him and upon all of GOD Almighty's pious believers, was not GOD Almighty.

  

Jesus' Original Name:

Prophet Jesus' original name was Eesa, as this is also his Islamic name.  Even in Latin, it is Iesu, and in Greek it is Iesus.  There is also a great deal of evidence that Jesus spoke and preached in Arabic.  Not only that, but Greek wasn't even that popular in Palestine.  Islam's claims are very strongly supported.  See proofs below.

  

Did early Christians preach Prophet Muhammad in Rome?

Did the early believers preach Prophet Muhammad in Corinth, Antioch, Rome and all other places?  Prophet Jesus, peace be upon him, was the Jews' Messiah and final Prophet.  In both the Glorious Quran and the Dead Sea Scrolls, Ahmed was prophesied to come.  Ahmed in the Quran is Prophet Muhammad's prophetic name.  Also, see below the Dead Sea Scroll image.  The New Testament too predicts the coming of three:

1.  Elijah.
2.  The Messiah.
3.  The Prophet.

John 1:19-21 and John 7:40-44.  Click on the images to expand:
  
    

  • John the Baptist calls Jesus a liar! (Matthew 11:1-6).

  •   

    So did the early believers preach the coming of Prophet Ahmed or Muhammad?  The answer is quite possible, but Muhammad would've been phase 2 for them and not phase 1.  Jesus was the early believers' immediate Prophet, not Muhammad.  And all of the details that they had were about Jesus, not Muhammad.  It is also important to know that the following seven Roman Emperors have thoroughly burned all of the early believers' writings:

    1.  Nero (54-68)
    2.  Domitian (81-96)
    3.  Marcus Aurelius (161-180)
    4.  Septimius Severus (193-211; up to a point)
    5.  Maximinius I Thrax (235-8; up to a point)
    6.  Trajanus Decius (249-251)
    7.  Valerian (253-260)

    Read all the details with references here.

    What we have today from "gospels" and "New Testament" were written 80 years to 300 years after Jesus' departure from this earth.  So, the current writings that we have are not original writings.  Also, to appease the Roman Empire's 3-headed pagan religion and practices, the pagan 3-headed trinity was invented [1] [2] [3] [4] [5].  Many lies had been fabricated after the original writings were all lost.  The Jews and Christians of Arabia, however, did have writings that predicted the coming of Prophet Muhammad.  These were some of the original texts that survived.

    Jesus also preached in Arabic:

    See the clear proofs in the following:

  • Proofs that early Christian believers' title was MUSLIMS from the Jews' and Christians sources themselves.  Also, Greek wasn't even the first language in Palestine, nor was it even hardly spoken by the natives there.
      
  • Also, ample proofs that Jesus also spoke and preached in Arabic, and there were many early manuscripts written in Arabic that spoke about the coming of Prophet Muhammad in details.  Arabic is estimated to date back 8000 to 20000 years by non-Muslim researchers, and had always been the first language in the entire lands of the Middle East, North and Central Africa.
      
  • Prophet Muhammad in the Early Christians' writings.
      
  • Prophet Muhammad foretold, by the name, in the previous Scriptures.  We still have texts today and from the Bible itself and outside the Bible that tell about the coming of Prophet Muhammad and Islam as the Servant of GOD Almighty and the New Religion and Covenant of GOD Almighty, respectively.

    What is the definition of Messiah in the Quran?
    Jesus was created from the Word of GOD and filled with the Holy Spirit, according to Islam.
      
  • In the Bible, Muslims, Salamays, Mushlams, Mushlems, Mushlimana are the Believers' original title [1].  Islam came to restore the original Faith [1].

    Prophet Muhammad in the previous Scriptures.  Prophet Muhammad was thoroughly foretold in the Bible, and his prophetic Name, "Ahmed", was also found in the Dead Sea Scrolls, and it was mentioned precisely in the Glorious Quran for the Prophet to be foretold by this very Name, Ahmed [1] [2].

      

      

      

      

    GOD in the Bible will take His Kingdom from the Jews and give it to the Muslim Nation.

  • Becca is Mecca in Psalm 84:6.  According to (1) Cambridge commentary, (2) Jewish Encyclopedia and (3) Encyclopedia Biblica in Arabic and other sources.  Ample Jewish and Christian references declare Becca's geography to be modern-day Mecca:
      

      
  • GOD in the Bible will take His Kingdom from the Jews and give it to the Muslim Nation.
  • Did GOD Almighty appear to Abraham as a human being?
  • The future "great nation" of Ishmael and its definition in the Bible.
  • Which book were the people of the Book reciting (فسأل الذين يقرؤون الكتاب) during Prophet Muhammad's days according to the Glorious Quran 10:94?
  • Judge the Jews and Christians by the Quran, because it has full authority over them and their scriptures 5:48 المهيمن.
  • The Jews' 600+ Commandments.
  • It's been geographically thoroughly proven that Teman is in Arabia (Ishmael's son's name is also Tema), and Paran is Mecca.  Christians in year 300 (3 centuries before Islam) even identified the geography of Paran to be modern-day Mecca.
  • Arabia's burden is an honorable burden (ample Bible verses declare this).  Islam is the perfect monotheistic Religion of Allah Almighty.
  • GOD's burden will be upon Arabia prophecy.  The same word, "burden," was also used for monumental assigned tasks to Prophets.  So, Arabia was chosen to carry the burden, and to bear the brunt and pain of spreading GOD Almighty's Truth to the entire world.  See Goddess Asherah, pornography, return of the Messiah from Damascus, Bible and Islam Prophecy for ample verses and proofs.  The Prophecy also says GOD will come from a far southern land [1], and from Teman and Paran [1] (both are in Saudi Arabia).  That's precisely Islam.
  • What does Islam say about the Jews?
  • Deuteronomy 18:18: GOD will send the Israelites a Prophet from their "brothers" [2].  That's the Ishmaelites!  Ample verses provided where the same word was also used for cousins.
  • Prophet Muhammad foretold in the previous scriptures.
