After doing more research I found out that there is disagreement among the scholars as to whether he was fully practicing the Zoroastrian religion or
Still, Yahweh being a Canaanite God of war still stands as fact which even scholars agree on. Here is a coin with "Yahweh" on it:

I don't see anything to give any proof that coin was of Yahweh. Sure the canaanites knew of him as Melki-Tsedec the "King of Righteousness".
Unfortunately for them they couldn't get the understanding of who he really is. Yahweh to them was the "Storm Lord", we now know him as Jesus
4 Who has ascended into heaven, or descended?
Who has gathered the wind in His fists?
Who has bound the waters in a garment?
Who has established all the ends of the earth?
What is His name, and what is His Son’s name,
If you know?
John 3:13 (Jesus speaking) No one has ascended to heaven but He who came down from heaven, that is, the Son of Man who is in heaven
John 3:31 (John the Baptist speaking) He who comes from above is above all; he who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of the earth. He who comes
from heaven is above all.
Who has gathered the wind in his fist?
Matt 8:23-27 (Jesus takes his disciples across the sea of Galilee)
23 Now when He got into a boat, His disciples followed Him. 24 And suddenly a great tempest arose on the sea, so that the boat was covered with the
waves. But He was asleep. 25 Then His disciples came to Him and awoke Him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!”
26 But He said to them, “Why are you fearful, O you of little faith?” Then He arose and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm.
27 So the men marveled, saying, “Who can this be, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?”
Matt 14:25-33 (Jesus walks on the sea of Galilee)
22 Immediately Jesus made His disciples get into the boat and go before Him to the other side, while He sent the multitudes away. 23 And when He had
sent the multitudes away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray. Now when evening came, He was alone there. 24 But the boat was now in the
middle of the sea,[a] tossed by the waves, for the wind was contrary.
25 Now in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went to them, walking on the sea. 26 And when the disciples saw Him walking on the sea, they were
troubled, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out for fear.
27 But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Be of good cheer! It is I; do not be afraid.”
28 And Peter answered Him and said, “Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.”
29 So He said, “Come.” And when Peter had come down out of the boat, he walked on the water to go to Jesus. 30 But when he saw that the wind was
boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink he cried out, saying, “Lord, save me!”
31 And immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and caught him, and said to him, “O you of little faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they got
into the boat, the wind ceased.
33 Then those who were in the boat came and worshiped Him, saying, “Truly You are the Son of God.”
Behold the Master of Heaven and Earth.
Tons of "gods" back then, but the real one was hiding like a needle in a haystack.
