An in depth look at scripture revealing
the truth of why
"Jesus" Is not "God" / Yah'ushua is not Elohim
and how the '3-in-one=1' doctrine does not add up.
This is intended to be a thorough refutation of the ridiculous "Jesus is God" heresy.
We will use what the scriptures teach and what the Messiah and his Father actually say.
We will shut the mouths of lying "theologians"(sky deity scholars), the Vatican
(minister of death) and pagan "church fathers" (fathers of lies) once and for all.
eg Glory comes from the Latin word "gloria" which is identified with the Sun as being radiant, shining, brilliant, bright as the sun. "Gloria" was a Roman goddess that was half-naked and held the zodiac signs. Splendour /splendid, honour / honorable are better words. For more pagan words explained see Sunday Worship Terms.
For the sake of those who are still coming to the knowledge of the truth we may use them in this article but where possible we place them in brackets after the correct word and preceded by "pw" (pagan word). Eg. Elohim (pw God). "Old Testament" and "New Testament" are also misleading pagan words and will be replaced by "Everlasting Covenant" and "Renewed Everlasting Covenant" hereafter abbreviated as EC and REC respectively. The shared Video, from an external source, after our discussion will also show why the incorrect use of "God" instead of "Elohim" further causes confusion and thus acceptance of the "trinity" heresy.
IntroductionThe two idolatrous religions (Islam, Christianity-Catholicism) all falsely claim monotheism (generally speaking). I lump Christianity and Catholicism together as one since they are both Babylonian syncretisms and not the true doctrine of the scriptures (pw bible). The reason for being this way, is because they (Crusaders, Ottomans, Club of Rome, Iluminati, Jesuits, Church institutions / Denominations etc ) love this world and its temptations through political agendas, power games and megalomania. They are earth centred rather than seeking the true light of Yahuah (pw God) and his rule and reign in the hearts of believers of his congregation who obey his To'rah and look forward to eternal life with The Father and his Son in shamayim (pw heaven).
Many Muslims, strangely, would appear to see the light when it comes to the truth that the scriptures do not teach that "Jesus is God". How is it possible that this wayward religion of Islam with such darkness and deception has this bit of light while the so-called Christian world, which claims to have the light, goes about trying to shine its dark, non-scriptural trinity doctrine into the eyes of the world? It is simple, they have all been deceived and influenced by Catholicism and its Babylonian roots. They choose to select only scriptures or parts of scripture that they like and replace the rest with the tradition and doctrines of men, because they are hooked on unrighteousness. At the end of the day they hate Yahuah and his To'rah. There are of course those who, within each of these categories, are beginning to seek the truth and love of the Father and his Son and are coming out of Babylon by the chesed (pw grace) of Yahuah (pw God).
Muslims wish to use scripture to correclty prove that Jesus is not God / Yah'ushua is not Elohim, but they do this only with the intent to corrupt the truth further and deny Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) also as the Son of Yahuah (pw God). Of course they are denying the scripture which clearly declares him as the Son of Yahuah. Catholics on the other hand, including their daughter Christian denominations, choose the trinity lie to promote a new religion which rejects To'rah and which they claim was started by their version of Messiah they like to call "Jesus" (J-zeus , J-Esus). They claim he is a god / God, and so they are no different to the Muslims since by claiming he is God they too deny that the true Messiah, Yah'ushua is the obedient Son of Yahuah and subject to him. It is the same poison only a different flavour. This Jesus (J-Zeus) god must receive "divinity", as they call it, a non-scriptural word like any other pagan word "diva" or "deity" who must bring some new doctrine from the Greek metropolis or Roman pantheon of gods which are merely re-inventions of Babylonian sky deities. The ultimate goal then is that the To'rah may be done away with by this revamped Babylonian sky deity J(Zeus) god ruling this pagan Graeco-Roman religion: Christianity and its new pagan system called "church" which tries to replace the "assembly" or "congregation" of true Yahudim (worshippers of Yah).
Overcoming the Ugly Face of the Trinity
Overcoming the trinity lie first requires one to simply dig up its sandy foundation. It accuses the victim by saying that in denying the "trinity" one somehow makes the Son of Elohim (pw God) less than what he is, ie. not "divine" or less "divine" than the Father, and then send you off to a place incorrectly called "hell". Yet, one can see right through the cloak and dagger, since, once the victim is gripped by this first fear of so-called heresy against this pagan 'church institution', the false teachers, like wolves, then sink their teeth in deeper exposing their victim to the next level of lies, that "Jesus" is indeed the very "Divine" Father himself! The victim very easily jumps with fear from the teeth of a so-called heresy right into the mouth of a real blasphemy.
When one realises the word "divine" is a pagan concept applied to pagan sky deities, and has no place in scripture in the first place, one immediately sees where the doctrine is coming from: Babylon! The pagan translators have inserted Babylonian words throughout the scriptures (pw bible) which have no place in the thoughts of a true believer. Secondly when one attributes to the Son what has not been attributed to him in the scriptures, ie. a pagan concept -"divinity", then that person is the heretic! He, nor his Father, are "divine" or "deities" of any kind . These are pagan titles with pagan idolatrous concepts.The Father and Son are not sky deities- they exist in the highest heights - third shamayim (pw heaven). This is beyond any created sky itself. Yahuah the Father is the living Elohim, the creator and possessor of shamayim (pw heaven) and earth and he has begotten his first begotten Son Yah'ushua, whom he has appointed authority to, under his very own name. Thus Yah'uah gives his Son part of his name, Yah'ushua, referring to the fact that Yahuah is the one who saves his people through His kinsman (Son) redeemer and our kinsman (who are believers). He has been given "power of attorney" as it were, he is our advocate. This does not give him power to be Elohim. Denying the "trinity" does not strip the Son of Yahuah from his rightful position or title nor does it strip him of his appointed authority. Exalting Yah'ushua the Son of Elohim in the correct way, on the other hand, will always reveal the Son's remaining subservience to his Father's will as an OBEDIENT SON, to the only Potentate, Elohim, his very teacher.
Thus his very existence is due to the Father since he is begotten (created) by Him and taught by Him. Anything that elevates the Son to a place above his teacher, ie. to a To'rahless Messiah, is an abomination and falsehood from Satan. This is the Marcion spirit which replaces Elohim as an apparently evil "god" with a benevolent, ecumenical, universal (catholic), To'rahless J(Zeus) Jesus. Pagan "deities" (really demons) have always been scripted this way. Such myths and legends are meant to teach the art and idea of revolting, usurping and competing for worship. Sound familiar? The real battle is with Satan, the leader of such demons. These real demons are merely represented by these fictional pagan images called "deities". Modern versions of these fictional "sky deities"are Superman, Batman etc all representing demons /Satan. Satan really does want you to join him and his demons in his attempted revolt against Yahuah's To'rah. Satan wants all the worship. The trinity is one of his strongest "divinely deified" demonic delusions that deceives the whole world and by which he can try to win over your worship to him, as that has been his goal since the garden of Eden.
The trinity doctrine and its liars have done much to create division and confusion in the minds of many lost souls. We trust that the word (scriptures) of Yahuah would truly revive and reform you as you study with us in exposing this damnable heresy.
Trinity 3 in one - More Perverse Than Even The Demons
BECAUSE ELOHIM SAID SO
Jesus being God in the flesh, Jesus being God incarnate, Jesus being the very God himself are all lies and contradictions to the truth of what Yah'uah Elohim has declared himself.
Let Yah be true and all men found to be liars who state otherwise.
God is not a man, that he should lie;
neither the *son of man,
that he should repent...
(* "Son of man" - see Ten Obvious Facts, point 1 below)
Trinitarians being joined at the hip to the Roman Catholic Church oppose Yah'uah and state their lying doctrines that:
"Jesus is God"
"Jesus is God in the flesh"
Jesus is God incarnate"
"Jesus is the very God"... etc
These they mainly base upon the corrupted, and out of context, phrase from
1 Timothy 3:16 in the KJV
"...God was manifest in the flesh..."
We expose the horrendous corruption of 1 Timothy 3:16
by the wicked translators of the Babylonian religion of Christianity (click here to go there now).
THEN YOU WILL NOT NEED TO GO ANY FURTHER THAN THIS.
YOU WOULD ALREADY REALISE THAT ANYTHING ELSE IS A CORRUPTION AND CONTRADICTION.
YAH'UAH (pw GOD) DOES NOT CONTRADICT HIMSELF.
BUT IF YOU ARE STILL STIFF-NECKED AND BELIEVE LYING MEN
AND STILL THINK ELOHIM IS A LIAR
THEN THE REST OF THIS ARTICLE WILL HAVE TO BE PLODDED THROUGH
1- The Scriptures Refute "Jesus is God" by Declaring Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) as the "Son of Man"
According to Matthew 1:1, Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) is the SON OF ELOHIM, the SON OF DAVID, SON OF ABRAHAM. He is a man, but most importantly he is the SON OF MAN. Every time this term is mentioned referring to Yah'ushua we remember that Elohim (pw God) has already categorically stated that the Son of Man is NOT Elohim according to Numbers 23:19 as above.
In the (REC) Renewed Everlasting Covenant (pw New Testament) it is said 89 times!

2- Yahuah is Spirit, Yah'ushua Came in the Flesh as the Son of Man - if you don't get that then there is no further help for you.
But Yah'ushua is the Son OF man and the Son OF Elohim (pw God). Anything more than that is a lie, period!
2 John 1: 7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Messiah Yah'ushua (pw Jesus Christ) is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an opponent of Messiah( pw antichrist).
1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of Elohim (pw God): Every spirit that confesseth that Messiah Yah'ushua (Jesus Christ) is come in the flesh is of Elohim (pw God): 3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Messiah Yah'ushua (pw Jesus Christ) is come in the flesh is not of Elohim (pw God): and this is that spirit of an opponent of Messiah (pw antichrist), whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
Is it not strange how the brainwashing by the catholic church has been controlling people to confess the very opposite, that Messiah is not flesh but Elohim (God) himself, and that to deny this is heresy and the unpardonable sin? This is the "success" of the trinity deception which deceives the world and puts them in fear of men rather than Elohim and fear of excommunication from men's "church" (circus) system or persecution. Did not the Pharisees also fear what men said rather than what Messiah and his Father said?
3-The Very First and Greatest Command Says There is ONE Not Three, and NO Other!
28 And one of the scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he [Yah'ushua] had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?
29 And Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear, O Israel; The master (pw Lord) Yah'uah (pw the LORD) our Elohim (pw God) is one master (pw Lord) Yah'uah (pw the LORD):
30 And thou shalt love the master (pw Lord) Yah'uah (pw the LORD) thy Elohim (pw God) with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.
31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.
32 And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one Elohim (pw God); and there is none other but he:
1 Tim 2:5 For there is one Elohim (pw God), AND there is one mediator between Elohim and men, the man Yah'ushua the Messiah (pw Christ Jesus)
The scribe confirms that there is none other than Elohim, there is no "god the son" and "god the spirit"! The scribe does not say yes and you are that one! No! He says there is none other but HE, Elohim, who is so to be worshipped. This is straight from the shema (to hear) the beginning and foundation of Yah'uah's commands ie to properly hear his commands you have to first and foremost understand He is ONE not three.
4 Hear, O Israel: The master (pw Lord) Yah'uah (pw the LORD) our Elohim (pw God) is one master (pw Lord) Yah'uah (pw the LORD):
5 And thou shalt love the master (pw Lord) Yah'uah (pw the LORD) thy Elohim (pw God) with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.
6 And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart:
7 And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
4- Elohim (pw God) Cannot Be Born.
Isaiah 43:10 "Ye are my witnesses, saith Yahuah (pw LORD), and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no Elohim (pw God) formed, neither shall there be after me."
5- Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Never Says, “I am Elohim (pw God)”.
On the contrary Yah'ushua explicitly states that he is not "Elohim (pw God)" being totally reliant upon His Father's will and not his own.
John 5:19 Then answered Yah'ushua and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise. 30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."
6- Elohim (pw God) Cannot Be Seen.
John 1:18 No man hath seen Elohim (pw GOD) at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
Once again a clear and distinct difference. Messiah has been his witness, his declaration, proclamation but never his dupleganger /imposter of Yahuah himself. He is the Son - period! ." Bosom" figuratively means a bay, this means he was figuratively hidden within the bay, as a ship would be, and then brought forth to be revealed / "declared" not as the Father but as the Son. The ship is revealed from the bay, the ship can never ever be the bay itself!
7- Apostle Shaul (Paul) Never Taught a Three-headed "Godhead"(Figures Left and Right : Various pagan depictions of the Trinity invention seen in catholic churches which match (figure below) the evil Masonic All seeing Eye.)
For a Trinity to exist, three "gods" have to exist Three sovereigns, but Yah'ushua made it clear that Yah'uah his Father has already emphatically said there is only ONE Elohim (see point 2 above). Yah'ushua the Son only teaches what his Father teaches not what the catholic church (universal circus) teaches.
If the Trinity were such an important heresy to be made truth then Shaul (Paul) would have taught it. He does not mention any trinity, he does not refer to a three-headed Godhead. In fact, Godhead is only mentioned in the Renewed Everlasting Covenant (pw "New testament") scriptures three times and only by Apostle Shaul (Paul). When he does refer to it he does not use it to create or support a trinitarian doctrine. In fact, it, instead, weakens the idea of three-in-one. Not in any single description by Paul describing the so-called Godhead do we see the pagan formula included at the same time. There is no so-called "god the father, god the son and god the holy spirit" formula ever mentioned. Instead this difficult and curious word Godhead is mentioned referring to a separate entity, the Father, the potentate who is the origin of creation, men and Messiah.
1) Acts 17:29 Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of Elohim (pw God), we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man’s device.
Here we see that Paul (Shaul) refers to men as offspring of Elohim. Elohim the Father creates, it is not man who creates the Father. The man Yah'ushua, the Son, therefore also cannot create or re-fashion the Father like some idol into his own liking. Yah'ushua is equally an offspring of Elohim but differs by being the first begotten Son of Elohim, firstborn of the spirit and not flesh. It means that the "Godhead" brings forth many offspring, Elohim the Father being their origin. No "god the father, god the son, god the holy spirit" heresy is mentioned here by Shaul. Instead, Elohim the Father is said to be the supreme creator of men, and it follows that so is Yahushua begotten as the first begotten Son of Yahuah in the flesh. As our section on the history of the trinity will show, it was the pagan invention of a "baptism" formula thatIrenaeus first used to begin crafting the trinity heresy. (for more on this see the Subversive Immersion Formula)
Again the "Godhead" here is made known to all men and they have no excuse. The "Godhead" clearly excludes the Son. Shaul is clearly showing that the "Godhead" is revealed by the things which the Godhead himself (Elohim Supreme) has created. If it were so obvious that the "Godhead" must include the Son then Shaul would not have excluded him in the equation. So the Godhead could be clearly known even without any knowledge of the Son then invisible. This is obviously how it was for most who obeyed the Father before getting knowledge of the Son or of His appearing. They did not need to acknowledge a "trinity" to be acceptable before Yahuah. No such command existed or should exist, except in the pagan Catholic church for its followers. But now that the "Godhead's" ultimate creation, his Son, who was hidden in the bay, has been revealed and has appeared, it is now only necessary to acknowledge the Son as just that, the Son of the living Elohim. There is no excuse, since his ultimate creation, that which he loves and is pleased with, his Son, has been shown to us. He has been shown to understand his own Creator who he calls Father, POINTING to the Godhead as Father. There is no excuse! No trinity can destroy the ultimate creation of the Son of Yahuah worshipping his Creator by full obedience and love, even to the point of laying down his life. 3) continues with this idea.
2) Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse
3) Colossians 2:9 For in him (Messiah) dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.Once again this demonstrates that although the Son had been created it was only until he was manifested in the flesh that the full revelation of the "Godhead", Elohim the Father could be fully understood by man on earth, since a Father can only be a Father if he has a Son who obeys him and shares his love with us. And thus, the Godhead, The Father, becomes our Father through the acknowledgement of his Son and NOT through some vain idea that the Son is the Father himself. The Son bears all the fullness of His Father's spiritual character and traits, he is truly one of his SPIRITUAL kindred by his MORAL CHARACTER inherited.
We will ellaborate more later regarding this odd pagan translation "Godhead" itself.
8- Elohim (pw God) Does Not Sleep, Eat, Drink, etc. Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Did.THe son of man, Yah'ushua did these things:
Matthew 11: 19 "The Son of man came eating and drinking... "
Even after resurrection:
Acts 10:41"...who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead"
9- Yah'ushua is Not Omniscient (all knowing) Like His Father YHUH (also see point 14)
Only Yahuah is all knowing there is nothing for him to learn. This is not the case with Yahushua. How does one learn obedience without being sinful? Simply by learning the commands of the Father and choosing to follow them from the outset. This is what Eve was supposed to continue to do after being created in perfection but did not. Where she failed the Son of Yahuah, Yah'ushua did not. Once one knows all things one cannot afterwards be unaware of anything, unless one's mind has been affected. To say that Yah'ushua lost his memory somehow would mean he were not of sound mind which is ridiculous.
(1 John 3:20) and Mark 13:32 "But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the malakhim (pw angels) which are in shamayim (pw heaven), neither the Son, but the Father."
Heb 5:8 Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
10- Elohim (pw God) Cannot Change. He is Perfect.
Matt 5:48 "Be perfect, therefore, as your Father in shamayim (pw heaven) is perfect.
This differs from Yah'ushua who took all our sins onto himself and for a short while was "forsaken" by His Father.
Malachi 3:6 "I am the the Master [refers to YHUH] (pw Lord) and change not"
Messiah temporarlily lowered himself below the malakhim (pw angels) when on earth.
Thus he had to learn and understand obedience and submission to Elohim. Now, if he were Elohim there would be nothing to learn since Elohim is all-knowing (omniscient).
Messiah had to
- learn obedience, submission
- be perfected (made fully mature in character)
- be purified by the Father's word to remain sinless in the world
2)Heb 5:9 And being made perfect, he became a causer* of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
3) John 17:16 They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. 17 Purify (pw -sanctify) them through thy truth: thy word is truth. 18 As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I purify (pw sanctify) myself, that they also might be purified (pw sanctified) through the truth
Note in 1) though he were a Son yet learned he obedience. We see that the obvious becomes clear, if Messiah were Elohim (pw God) then here would have been the perfect time to say: though he were Elohim (pw God) yet learned he obedience ( an obvious oxymoron). This is after all the folly of the trinity "godspell" that the omniscient Elohim somehow became an amnesiac. However Paul does not even hint at such absurdity. Paul is not a trinitarian. Instead he makes it clear that the Son of Yahuah was not excluded from learning to submit as he was truly a Son and his Father was truly a Father. I will now show you how the trinitarian bias again from the translators of the KJV twists the verse and you will see how the truth and proper logical sense of the sentence is revealed when the correct words are applied.
Let's look at the Greek shall we: "though" and "yet" are in the Greek the same word but since they have various meanings there is latitude in choosing which to use by context. If the context is trinitarian bias then obviously the translation would be in that direction. Lets look
2539 kaiper kah'-ee-per from 2532 and 4007; and indeed, i.e. nevertheless or notwithstanding:--and yet, although. see GREEK for 2532 see GREEK for 4007
So let's use the first meaning listed "and indeed" and insert them
Now does this not make more sense. Obviously if he indeed were a Son then he would indeed obey his Father according to To'rah. According to To'rah a son is defined as a son by his very obedience to his Father, else he is no more.
Furthermore if Yahuah is no respector of persons then His own son should not receive special treatment either. However, this is the tone we get with the KJV, that even though he were a son he had to learn obedience. In other words, my gosh, how strange it is for them that the Son of Elohim himself should also have to learn obedience, how dare He have to go through such a thing, especially if you claim he is "Elohim (pw God)" himself, how strange indeed. This stupidity in translation would further lead to the imaginings of a son of royalty expecting to get red carpet treatment on earth only to be tricked by his Father to face the "evil Jews" and then this Jesus saying, oh dear, why are you forsaking me Father, what's happening? Of course this is all fiction. Yah'ushua knew exactly (John 10:17) what was in store as a son and laid down His own life for all evil done by every sinner on earth, not only for the Jews. The ultimate obedience was that he must obey his Father to the end in taking the punishment for our sins whilst innocent, with the promise of resurrection. Such obedience and trust by a son to a Father is rare, thus it should read "AND INDEED he were a Son" to the fullest degree in obedience, submission and trust. If we use the translation "though he were a son" it implies that he was Elohim (pw God) and for a while he became a son, grinning and bearing obedience/submisison to himself or if not to himself then who or what? The Jews? The Romans? Of course not! There is no such charade! Digging deeper into the verse the only charade is the translation itself. Now, again, with the corrections (and indeed) lets look further:
5607 on oan, including the feminine ousa oo'-sah; and the neuter on on present participle of 1510; being:--be, come, have. see GREEK for 1510
Thus the translation charade is further exposed and should be:
Now Shaul is making it clear that Yah'ushua the Messiah is emphatically STILL INDEED a SON, not past tense Son. He has not been elevated to "Elohim (pw God)" by some pretense of suffering. He is INDEED STILL OBEYING his FATHER. He is not THE FATHER. So now the false translation suggests the idea of a new god usurping Elohim and this idea would be further strengthened with the false use of the word, author, as explained in 2) above, where the "new god" has authored a new religion which they call Christianos (Christianity - all about a new syncretic god and nothing about pure To'rah). (For more see Do You Really Want To Be Called a Christian?"
However, the truth is that The Father INDEED will send His Son INDEED again to resurrect His righteous and destroy the wicked. If He were no longer an obedient Son what surety is there that justice will be done as prophesied? Perhaps the mind of the ecumencial translator can be heard here by these twisted translations. What if this son were that pagan (J)Zeus, the one that does away with To'rah? Perhaps he will resurrect all those sinning pagan catholics and christians who love the sins of other idolaters, perhaps he is the benevolent one who will usurp his Father, throw out that dreaded righteous To'rah which condemns them, and feel sorry for those unrepentant wicked ones. No! Not so. The SON has been appointed as the righteous obedient judge of the Father, he is not a pagan (J)Zeus god born on 25 December like all the others from the pagan pantheon parade. No, he is the Son Yah'ushua, Son of the Living righteous Elohim who will destroy the wicked according to his To'rah.
In today's society the erroneous translation "though he were a son, yet learned he obedience" would be quite acceptable to understand since the perverse fathers of today think sonship means spoiling / corrupting the son by encouraging materialism and worldly success (eg. a career which ignores the seventh day sabbath, dishonest dealings etc). Sonship for them is not defined by obedience to To'rah and bringing a son up in the ways of Yahuah. They would think it strange that a son should be punished, as correctly instructed in To'rah, so that he learns the ways of Yahuah and does not lose his soul. At the same time, however, they might, if they are "christian", accept the innocent Son Yahushuah to stand in their place and be punished by the Father for their own sins, and yet they are content in despising the same Messiah and his atonement by continuing to sin and raising sons who in turn sin (transgress the Father's To'rah). They will accept a (J)Zeus god who they think will universally (catholically) accept both goats (wicked) and sheep (righteous) into shamayim (pw heaven). They despise the Son of Elohim, they despise the Father Elohim most of all.
Prov 3:11 My son, despise not the chastening of Yahuah; neither be weary of his correction: 12 For whom Yahuah loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.
It does not mean Messiah is of the same substance, ie, is sovereign, he is not above the To'rah (law) of his Father but is a submissive, obedient Son.
11-Yah'ushua is Not Omnipresent.Yah'uah Elohim is omnipresent
Yah'ushua however now sits on the right-hand side of Elohim on the throne
1 Peter 3:22 "Who is gone into shamayim (pw heaven), and is on the right hand of Elohim ; malakhim (pw angels) and authorities and powers being made subject unto him."
He does not reside in every man but only through the spirit in the hearts of those who obey and acknowledge him as the Son of Yahuah. The Son has left us till he returns but is with true believers in spirit, in a way that is no different to Paul's own non-omnipresent description as a man on earth.
The spirit is the knowledge, acknowledgement, thoughts, prayers, mindset, will, wisdom of Yahuah- the spirit is NOT a person (although it is personified just as wisdom is elsewhere in scripture. Wisdom is personified as female while ruach hakodesh, pure spirit of Yahuah, is personified as male) The spirit is also not a dove but was described in this way merely because of the manner in which it descended LIKE a dove.
Col 2:5 For though I be absent in the flesh, yet am I with you in the spirit.
Yah'ushua had to be fully
present in the flesh to die on the torture stake (pw cross,
crucifixion) - He had emunah (pw faith)
that Elohim would raise him up. He
raise himself as he was dead, D-E-A-D. Anyone
declares otherwise is denying that the Son came in the flesh ( ie. was
mortal) - this is the anti Messiah spirit that alludes to immortality
Yah'ushua does not possess self-existence in the flesh since He was begotten. How strange it would be if Elohim is both the Father and Son simultaneously, as at, for example, Yah'ushua's immersion (pw baptism) and at the transfiguration. Is Elohim playing different roles as in a pantomime? If Yah'ushua is Elohim he must then be a ventriloquist saying He is pleased with Himself? No, Yahuah is not an entertainer in the "church"/circus. Yahuah is not pretending or role playing like some child. This is not a Hollywood production. This is reality: Yahuah is the Almighty Father Elohim and he has a Son!!
Matthew 3:16 "And Yah'ushua (pw Jesus), when he was immersed (pw baptized), went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the shamayim (pw heavens) were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of Elohim (pw God) descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: 17 And lo a voice from shamayim (pw heaven), saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased."
Matthew 17: 4 "Then answered Peter, and said unto Yah'ushua (pw Jesus), Master (pw -Lord) , it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Eliyahu (Elijah). 5 While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him."
12- Yah'ushua is Not Omnipotent (ALL powerful and ALL sovereign)
we see that the Son, the man in the flesh was weak in the flesh and had
to be strengthened. That which is all powerful is never weak and that
is Elohim (God) the Father alone who is not flesh or a man but spirit.
But now that Yah'ushua has been given power it is finite as it will be handed over to His Father at the end.
1 Cor 15:24 "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the rule and reign (pw -kingdom) to Elohim (pw God), indeed (*even)the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that Elohim (pw God) may be all in all."
(KJV has "even" the Father as though he is inclusive of others when it should be rendered "indeed" ie exlcusivley the very Father alone. This is confrimed by the use of "excepted" in verse 26 further conveying exclusivity of the Father from the Son)
13- The Father Cannot Be Sent.If the Father Elohim was sent who sent him? Mary his Mother???? No! This is a ridiculous catholic lie and perversion.
(* glorify / glory is a pagan word used by Catholics in the Latin Vulgate and hence KJV after the godess Gloria- a cleaner word would be splendour, honour, exalt, etc. )
YHUH is the essence of the worship. He is the object of worship and receives the splendour even as Yah'ushua's purpose in receiving splendour from His Father is to ultimately give splendour to the Father and, in fact, prove that he has been sent by the Father. Over and over again Yah'ushua makes it clear that the true believers are to know that YHUH the Father has sent the Son and YHUH is to be worshipped as in the Master Messiah's Prayer*. Yah'ushua's followers at that time (Apostles and Disciples) never ever believed that the Father IS the Son. Furthermore the term "I and the Father are one" is clearly explained as perfection / completeness, and is not at all limited to any trinity since the true believers are included in obtaining this same oneness which is purely a oneness or aggreement in mind and spirit with Yahuah's and Yah'ushua's will.
(*pagan translation: Lord's Prayer)
14-Yah'ushua explicitly says that he worships and serves Yahuah his Elohim (pw God) alone.
Yah'ushua obeys (continuous tense) the first commandment. He is not "Elohim (pw God)" . He does not worship himself!
Mat 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the splendour of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Yah'ushua unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship Yahuah thy Elohim (pagan translation the Lord thy God), and him only shalt thou serve.
Satan was tempting Yah'ushua to worship him instead of Yahuah His Elohim. He refused!! Notice, He did not say, Satan, you are to worship me your Elohim, and notice, Satan himself did not confuse Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) the Son with Elohim (pw God) either, now did he, else he would not have attempted to tempt him as the Son in breaking the first commandment! It is ironic that Satan himself knows who the Son is, one who worships the Father, but still deceives men into thinking the Son is somebody else and creates a false Jesus god who does break the first commandment, making himself Elohim (pw God) and abolishing his To'rah ( including the first commandment and the fourth and so it goes). Same temptation all over again, only worse and on a bigger scale to the ignorant.
15-The Mind of Elohim (pw God) the Father is Clearly Not the Same as the Son.
1 Cor 2:15 For who hath known the mind of Yahuah (pw the Lord), that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Messiah (pw Christ).
The Father's mind instructs while the Son's mind chooses to follow and obey his instruction. Hence we can be like-minded as the Son but not all knowing as the Father. This ties in with point 7 above referring to omnscience.
This defines the meaning of the fullness of the nature of Elohim (pw Godhead) dwelling in Yah'ushua (Col 2:9). It was and is not Elohim himself dwelling in a "Yah'ushua disguise", else he would also be all knowing (omniscient) see point 7.
16-Elohim (pw God) Did Not Come Down to the Earth as a Man, Yah'ushua (pw Jesus)
In fact, we see the very opposite - when Yah'ushua teaches us how to separate men's identity from Elohim (pw God) the Father. He uses the evidence of Elohim (pw God) being in shamayim (pw heaven) even while he himself Yah'ushua (the Son) was down on earth. This clear, distinct and distant seperation between Yah'ushua and Yahuah could not be clearer by the added mention of shamayim ( the heights) - third shamayim (pw heaven) where Yahuah dwells outside of our realm.
Matthew 23:9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in shamayim (heaven).
Furthermore, Yah'ushua's statement "your Father which IS in shamayim (pw heaven)" appears eight more times in the good message (pagan translation-gospel) as well as of course "OUR Father which IS in shamayim (pw heaven)". Yes, the Father's prayer which Yah'ushua taught us while on earth as the Son of Elohim clearly reminds us again that the Father is His Father too by the use of "our" Father. The Son clearly separates himself from the notion that Elohim (pw God) came down from "shamayim (pw heaven)" as "Jesus". Instead he utilises the present tense case of what is going on on earth while he is presently here and where the Father is at the same time - ie. in shamayim (pw heaven) - period!
17-Elohim (pw God) Alone is Immortal, Unapproachable and Invisible
This will only take place at the resurrection when all the righteous dead are raised together at the last day before the millenium. After the 1000 years the wicked dead are raised to life but only to be destroyed along with death itself. Nobody possesses immortality (save Messiah to whom it has been given by the Father) and thus repeated, unrepentant, wilful sin (eg. addicts, drunkards, unclean foods, sexually immoral: adulterers, fornicators(shacking up), multiple partners.................. etc, etc ) in the body will cause death and loss of salvation, even after justification by Messiah. (For more on losing one's salvation see Take the OSAS Challenge) Neither is there purgatory where sins can be removed after death ( For more see Puragatory Heresy ).
18-Ya'ushua The Son Made Like Us In Every Way, Not Elohim (pw God).
From the above it is clear that it was "essential" that Yah'ushua be made like us as the Updated KJV puts it. He was of the seed of Abraham and He was made as we were in all things (Greek- pas) made in every way the same with free will to succumb to temptation or to resist it. He chose the latter. If He were Elohim (pw God) Satan would not have wasted his time trying to tempt Him, now would he? Yahuah Elohim cannot be tempted to sin. Yah'ushua had to overcome Satan by not sinning. He chose to resist sin because He loves the Father. He thus became our perfect atonement. Some have taught that Messiah was made righteous by nature rather than choice. This suggests He was an automaton who could not sin. This is utterly false and a lie since we have already been told here in Heb 2:16 that He was made with our nature, like us in every way with the same weaknesses, free will, etc. Messiah was certainly born righteous (free of sin) just as Adam before he sinned. When Messiah entered this sinful world He had to remain righteous by learning to remain obedient - Heb 5:8 as discussed in point 8 above. He had to purify himself (John 17:19) of this world's temptations by resisting them. Adam did not stay righteous, while Messiah, on the other hand, obviously did. Messiah did this both by choice and by nature since He chose to follow the nature of His Father just as we ought to.
The following chapter: History of the Trinity,
contains some text from a printed tract of a "church" sect.
some places we have left the pagan names and words as they are.
We do not uphold to the teachings of so-called
"church fathers","denominations" or the misleading term "christianity"
We merely use the historical references to show men's philosophy
through history and how it opposes the true scriptures.
of the Trinity
During the 2nd and 3rd
centuries so-called church-fathers of Alexandria in Egypt Clement,
Irenaeus, Alexander, Origen, Arius, Athanasius and Cyril were causing
confusion over the so-called Divinity of the Messiah.
They wanted to know whether He was fully Divine, or was He human?
Well, it is important to note that this word “divine” itself is a pagan idea in the first place.
Divine/Divinity, Deity, Theos are all related words. The Greek words "dios" and "Theos," and the Latin word "deus" all refer to pagan gods: Greek "Dieus/Zeus, Teutonic-Germanic "Ziu," Roman "Diovis/Jovis/ Jupiter/Zeus were all names for Sun-god deities that "shine, have brightness."
So denying the trinity is said to deny the Deity or Divinity of Messiah. Well, that would be a good start since Elohim (pw God) is not a pagan god. He is not a Deity or Divinity either.
It is well known from the writings on the walls of the pyramids that the Egyptians had many gods, and were familiar with worshipping various trinities. A trinity is a group of three gods. For example, they worshipped Amun, Maut and Khonso, another was Osiris, Isis and Horus, and also Neph, Sate and Amouke, to name a few of the better known trinities. Different trinities were being revered in different cities, while worshippers exercised a peaceful toleration toward those who revered any others. This same tolerance or compromise was later shown with Constantine in Rome and his establishment of the false religion called Christianity. It is interesting to note, however, that in all these Egyptian trinities, the third god of the trio always emanated from the first two as though it were their offspring.
It was about AD 180 that Irenaeus proposed the first exposition of a “Christian Trinity”. This whole matter seems to have arisen from the baptism formula recorded in Matthew 28:19 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit". Irenaeus also taught that those Christians who wished to be baptized must have a triple immersion in running water. This was intended to conform to the three elements, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Two leading clergymen, Alexander and Athanasius, quickly picked up on Irenaeus's theory of a triune god. They both believed that Elohim (pw God) and Jesus were equal, and they started to teach the earliest concept of the Christian Trinity. They started to preach that Jesus was fully “divine” and the same substance with the Father. They used the Greek words Homo Ousious (of the same substance) to describe the Father and the Son to make Irenaeus's idea more credible. So we assume that they had made their god a sun god like so many pagan triune gods since their obsession was with “divinity” and thus their Jesus was made of the same substance ie a sun-god too.
In the meanwhile Arius, a priest in Alexandria argued that Elohim (pw God) is spirit (John 4:24) a non-material personal being, and his Son “Jesus” flesh and blood. He used the term Heter Ousious (of a different substance). He said if Elohim (pw God) had created the Son, the Son could not be eternal with the Father. He argued that “Jesus” was created a superior Being to redeem the human race. He reasoned that if the Father bore a Son, there must have been a time when the Son did not exist, so the Son could not be eternal with the Father. He therefore placed the Son in a position below that of the Father. Arius also taught that the Father and Son were both superior to the “Holy” Spirit, which was Elohim's (pw God) power. He was convinced that the Father must rank above the Son and the Son was above the “Holy” Spirit. He said that Elohim (pw God) was the creator, and that the Son of Elohim (pw God) was an intermediate Being, above all the rest of creation.
As the contention raged on, Arius could not alter the views of his opponents, so he called upon some of his fellow clergymen at Constantinople and elsewhere for support, causing the dispute to spread. The contention caused waves of strife to arise between bishops, the clergy and various “church” groups, causing Alexandria to become divided over this issue. The arguments continued unabated well into the 4th century, and by the 5th century these conflicts disrupted all commercial and industrial activity in Alexandria.
In the meanwhile the Edict of Milan in AD 313 brought an end to all persecution of those who claimed to follow Jesus in the Roman Empire. Constantine the Great then invented Christianity as the state religion, and concerned himself with the affairs of this early Christian Church which was nothing like the doctrine of the apostles, Messiah or Yahuah.
This was simply a political manoeuvre
in order to
unify its false doctrines and thereby ensure unity within the Empire.
Constantine was greatly concerned over the quarrelling by the
“church” leaders with regards to the nature of Jesus. He
then took the initiative in AD 325, by convoking a Church Council in
Nicaea, in present day Turkey. The Meeting was commissioned
resolve the disagreement over the nature of Jesus and several other
disputes that were prevalent at that time. The main dispute
about the so-called “divinity” of Jesus was again based on some
ambiguous Renewed Everlasting Covenant (pw New Testament)
The meeting was very tempestuous as they debated and finally adopted the heretic resolution that Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) was indeed fully divine and of the same substance as the Father. The meeting then endorsed their decision by using the key words Homo Ousious (of one substance) to describe the relationship of Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) to Elohim (pw God) the Father. From then onwards, Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) was to be known as "God the Son". The Holy Spirit was then declared a God of equal standing with the Father and the Son. The upshot of this meeting was that the Council had introduced a new doctrine into their Christian Church known as the Trinity. This is the term used to express the belief that within the one God, there are three “divine” persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost (or Holy Spirit). The Meeting then formulated the Nicene Creed, which was to be recited in all “churches” to demonstrate that Jesus was indeed "Very God".
At this time I cannot help but repeat what I had, as you may recall, stated at the begining in point 10:
1 Cor 15:24 "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the rule and reign (pw -kingdom) to Elohim (pw God), indeed (*even) the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he (Yah'ushua) must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he (Yahuah) hath put all things under his feet. But when he (Yahuah) saith all things are put under him (Yah'ushua), it is manifest that he (Yahuah) is excepted which did put all things under him (Yah'ushua). 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him(Yah'ushua), then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him (Yahuah) that put all things under him, that Elohim [Yahuah](God) may be all in all."
KJV has "even" the Father as though he is inclusive of others when it should be rendered "indeed", ie. exclusively the very Father alone. This is confirmed by the use of "excepted" in verse 26 further conveying the exclusivity of the Father from the Son.
So, to put it another way, 1 Cor 15:24 is plainly exposing the lie of Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) indeed being “the very God” for it is saying that the fact that the Son is subject to the Father at the end of his appointed authority shows that he is NOT indeed the very God. It is the Father who is indeed the very all in all Elohim, in other words, Sovereign Potentate (pw Godhead), and NOT Yah'ushua. Appointed power is never above its sovereign master (pw Godhead).
Mat 10:24 The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his master.
In 1 Cor 15:24 the Messiah is neither above nor equal in position but under the sovereign Elohim. Scriptures refer to him being equal in other ways, eg. by kinship, etc. but not in sovereignty. (Covered in more detail later)
Back to the history
of the trinity : Arius still maintained that there was only one God
and that Jesus was the Son of God. He claimed that by
the Son to equality with the Father they were destroying the great
truth of the unity of Elohim (pw God). He told the meeting
the Nicene Creed and everything that this meeting had
In reply, the meeting then rejected Arius, and declared his "One
God" teaching as "Arian heresy"
because he would not accept that Messiah is of the same substance as
Elohim (pw God).
After this, Arianism quickly disappeared from within the Roman Empire. However, his followers remained active outside the Empire, particularly through the preaching of Bishop Ulfilas who converted many Germanic tribes to “Christianity” in northern Europe.
A second Council Meeting was held at Constantinople fifty years later, in AD 381 to ratify the doctrine of the Trinity. It approved the wording Homo Ousious (of one substance), and then affirmed that the “Holy” Spirit was a person. After a few amendments were made, the Nicene Creed was adopted, all of which were first propounded at Nicaea in AD 325. Conservative churchmen, however, hesitated to use this non-Biblical term Homo Ousious.
The introduction of the Trinity created much discord within this “Church” which raged on for many years, causing another Council to be held at Ephesus in AD 431. This meeting was to resolve some unfinished business, and to make further amendments, to the "Christian Trinity” which had been promulgated at the Nicaea and Constantinople Meetings. At this meeting, the Bishop of Alexandria came forward and introduced the idea that the Virgin Mary should be called the "Mother of God". He used the word Theotokos, "Birthgiver of God" to pacify the people concerning this new doctrine of the Trinity. He also proposed that Mary should be worshipped as the "Mother of God". Nestorius, the Bishop of Constantinople on the other hand, asserted that the so-called “Divine” nature did indeed dwell in Jesus but He was not fully Elohim (pw God), nor could he accept that the Virgin Mary is the Mother of Elohim (pw God). The Meeting then condemned Nestorius as a heretic for not accepting the Trinity.
It is ironic that this meeting should have taken place in Ephesus where they were pursuing the old pagan ideas of Isis and Cybele, the great mother goddesses, and Diana, the virgin goddess of the Ephesians whom the Apostle Paul denounced while on his missionary journey when he arrived at Ephesus, as we read in Acts 19:26-29,35.
It took over 200 years, and no less than five Councils to hammer out, refine, and finalise the doctrine of the Trinity. Many proposals and counter proposals were put forward and debated at these meetings. Every minutest detail and every possibility of Messiah's relationship to the Father were argued and debated over and over again. Many of the clergymen at that time sincerely believed that within the one Elohim (pw God), there are three “Divine” Persons - the Father, the Son and the "Holy Ghost" or "Holy Spirit". Whislt one can be sincerely wrong, error can also be wilfully chosen by not taking the time to seek the truth in the scriptures and following the vain teachings of men.
The advent of the Trinity which evolved from these Council Meetings appears to be a concept drawn from the Mythologies of ancient Egypt and Babylon. It did not form part of the Apostles' original teachings as recorded in the Renewed Everlasting Covenant (pw New Testament), but was a product of many factors which were forming in this thing called “Church”, particularly in Egypt during the 3rd and 4th centuries. By that time everyone had lost sight of the simple teachings of Yah'ushua and the Apostles; and theology had taken its place. It is interseting to note that the word "theology" is not in scripture and is related to the invented Roman Vulgate word "theos" from which we get the pagan word Divine or god from Hinduism's sun gods / Divas etcetera. It has nothing to do with Yahuah the Almighty in shamayim. He is not a sun-god or a sky god and neither is his Son.
The word "deity" derives from the Latin deus ("god"), which is related through a common Indo-European origin to Sanskrit deva ("god"), devi ("goddess"), divya ("transcendental", "spiritual"). The root is related to words for "sky", such as Latin dies ("day"), and the Sanskrit div, divus, diu ("sky", "day", "shine"). Also related are "divine" and "divinity," from the Latin "divinus," from "divus."
[Deity - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.htm]
Constantine however felt satisfied that for the first time his “Church” had a recognized set of "Christian" doctrines which are still adhered to today through the pagan Roman Catholic church and its Protestant “children”
As the decisions of these Councils were intended for universal acceptance throughout the Roman Empire, those who would not subscribe to them were declared heretics. Ultimately a law was passed in AD 719 making the worship of the Trinity compulsory in all “churches”.
Shortly after this, however, it was discovered that the Western and Eastern sections of the Church were not unanimous in accepting the Trinity as it stood. They disagreed on how the “Holy” Spirit is derived. The Greek Orthodox Church used the original text of the Nicene Creed which stated that the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father. They base their belief on John 15:26
"But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me."
The Church in Rome, in the meanwhile, inserted the filioque Clause (Latin for, and from the Son) into the Nicene Creed as they felt that the Holy Spirit proceeded from both the Father and the Son together, so as to conform to the Egyptian trinities. This view was rejected by the Eastern Church as they believe that the Father alone produced both the Son and the "Holy Spirit". This dispute remains a serious obstacle to the reunification of the two pagan “Churches” to this day. The Roman Catholic and the Greek Orthodox Churches each claim that their Trinity is the right one. These two "Christian Churches” have been divided over the Trinity for nearly a thousand years.
The Apostle Paul warned of an imminent departure by the congregations*, from the simple teachings of Yah'ushua.
( *ekklesia , not "church"- a pagan Roman Vulgate word invention from the circe godess)
Acts 20:28-31 Take heed brethren unto yourselves and to all the flock for I know this that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise speaking perverse things to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn everyone night and day with tears .
Another stern warning
1Cor 8:5-7 "For though there be that are called mighty ones, [elohim, which are not – in other words idols] (pw -gods), whether in shamayim or on Earth. But to us there is but ONE Mighty One [Elohim], the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; AND one Yah'ushua Messiah, by whom are all things and we by him. Howbeit there is not in every man this knowledge.Shaul makes no mention of a "god the spirit" either here but in Hebrews says the Father Elohim is the source of the spirits.
The Ruach (breath) of Yahuah was made to rest upon his Son, it came out of the Father, it is not a third pagan god to be prayed to as popularised by the Benny Hinn cult book "Good morning Holy Spirit". It is not a person, it is only personfied. Wisdom in Proverbs has been personified as a woman but nobody added "god the wisdom", so why a "god the spirit"? The blood of Abel also cries out but it is not a god, it is merely personified as it bears direct witness of Cain and all the prophets murdered.
The spirit of Yahuah consists of seven attributes:
Rev 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of Elohim sent forth into all the earth.
The set apart Ruach is not a person!
A trinity idea of only three is somewhat lacking if one truly DEIFIES SPIRITS like a true pagan and loves to make a corrupted polytheism of the One TRUE ELOHIM Yahuah. That pagan should rather go all the way to gehenna (pw hell) in an express train and do his worst and invent a god the father, god the son, god the wisdom, god the fear, god the understanding, god the knowledge, god the counsel, god the spirit, etc. But perhaps that would have obviously been too pagan back then and they had to be more subtle. Perhaps this will be the next pantheon of pagan gods they will invent in the future as they paganise the scriptures further. In fact, the very pagan and catholic pentecostal charismaniac Benny Hinn went so far as to invent a greater number within his trinity at some stage. "As Hinn's popularity increased due to his television program and the runaway sales of Good Morning, Holy Spirit, his teachings came under close scrutiny by several apologetics ministries. The Christian Research Institute became especially alarmed by Hinn's references to the Godhead that seemed at best unorthodox and at worst heretical. On both his television program and in his book, Hinn asserted that all three persons of the Triune Godhead have their own independent bodies, souls, and spirits, as well as wills (10/13/90, TBN)"
This is an example of what rubbish is shown on Trinity Broadcasting Network. Ironically this heretic broadcaster of the Trinity doctrine also boasts of its love for the pope as a man of God as does Hinn.
The catholic church has done its worst in any case, they created enough Saints to be prayed to every day of the year (365). In setting them up as sky deities to be prayed to they are indeed deified gods, including Mary of course. They thus pray to the dead in and make themselves the masters of necromancy which is an abomination and punishable by death under Yahuah's coming judgement. And let's not forget their god "Saint" Nicholas, the "saint" of thieves who is worshipped as SANTA (SATAN) by the whole world. He certainly is the robbing demon, deceiving children with pagan worship and idolatry and turning them away from Yah'ushua robbing them of their reward of salvation. Martin Luther and the Protestants (daughters of the harlot church) merely offered soft porn as it were in the form of another idol for their pagan festival Christmas. For Satan worshippers Yah'uah's sovereignty must be undermined at all costs. For more see "Saving Christmas?"
Paul's prophecy of what would happen after his departure was a warning of the debacle that would divide the believers very early on after his departure. These early so-called "church fathers" (fathers of lies) in the 3rd and 4th centuries had already denounced much of the To'rah that Messiah taught and that the disciples, apostles and believers had followed in the first century. Since they rejected the light it is no wonder that they wandered into the deeper darkness of trinity heresy and then into idolatry of a Messiah who is a god and then on to the abomination of Mary as the Mother of God. More darkness would follow as they began to create their own doctrines. One could be tempted to blame it on the scriptures themselves as if they are written in such a way that there may have been apparent contradictions, but there are no contradictions in the scriptures. Elohim is not the author of confusion. They really simply wanted a replacement religion, one that would replace the To'rah. They chose darkness with the invention of To'rah-less Christianity and its trinity which blasphemes the sovereignty of Yahuah.
---- 00O00 ----
Roman Catholic Church and its daughter the Protestant, Christian
conglomerate had to create a supposed doctrinal support for their
"Jesus is God in the flesh"
"Jesus is God incarnate"
"Jesus is the very God"... etc
It seems their supposed success was achieved once again by their use of their own corrupted tranlsations that they had time to conjure up while they witheld them from the masses, the laity.They had plenty of time to tweak and corrupt the Hebrew and /or Greek into pagan Latin. Their "greatest" work would probably be 1 Timothy 3:16 as seen today in the KJV still being used as doctrinal support across the trinitarian spectrum of deceivers.
1 Tim 3:16 "...God was mainifest in the flesh..."
The half asleep and illiterate would not realise this to be a direct contradiction to Yah'uah (pw God) himself
God is not a man, that he should lie;
neither the *son of man,
that he should repent...
The foolish, like so many of us at one time or another, accepted their lie. But now by the kindess of Yah'uah many of us who love the truth are being shown that very truth and the lies of Babylon are beign exposed once and for all! The horrendous corruption of 1 Timothy 3:16 is still evident in most modern KJV versions. In the copy I have on hand a Ninth Impression 1992 based on the 1962 edition of the American Bible Society I find the following
Very clearly the publication indicates an asterisk next to "God". This inidcates an "alternative reading and rendering" which is supplied at the back. The alternate reading provided or suggested woud then be:
1Tim 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: He who was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.
Already we see the papal walls of Rome crumbling, "Elohim" (pw God) is not even there in the alternate rendering. No such corrupted version of 1 Tim 3:16 existed in any manuscript neither did any reference to it exist until after the creation of the trinity doctrine as set out in the chapter" History of the Trinity". The conclusion is clear - corruption of the truth was necessary to support a corrupt religion.
At this point it becomes paramount to further take note of what the subject in the sentence is. The subject is "the mystery of godliness". The subject is not "God" himself here. "godliness" is the pagan translation's useless attempt at replacing the Greek "eusebeia" which means piety ie. being morally set apart to Yah'uah (pw holiness). Thus the subject is referring to an attitude, action or behaviour that is toward Elohim and not referring to Elohim Himself. The mystery then is NOT about how is it possible for Jesus to be God? That is never the question here since every true disciple knows Numbers 23:19 as above prohibits any such quesiton, but rather, how is it possible for a man to behave totally set apart and pious in obedience to Yah'uah? This is what is being declared. It made no sense for the translator to have made any error here unless it was intentional.The declaration that "he", someone, in the flesh was shown to us, justified in the spirit, seen of malakhim (pw angels), preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world and recived up into splendour (pw glory), this is the answer to the mystery and there is NO CONTRVOERSY, NO CONTRADICTION. Did you hear that? He who was shown to us as being fully obedient and morally pure does not contradict Numbers 23:19, he is not Elohim, he is a man and remains a man, he remains the son of Elohim - it is Yah'ushuah. The mystery that a man sent from above could be perfect and morally pure unto Yahuah and re-enter into shamayim (pw heaven) is the mystery that is no longer a mystery or a question, it has been seen and declared without CONTROVERSY, without CONTRADICTION.
The further stupidty of statiing "God" was seen by malakhim (pw angels) as some new revelation would be even more laughable. That Yah'uah would need justifying by his own spirit is a double joke, and that He would be received up in splendour (pw glory) a triple great mystery since by whom would He be received by and given honour by? In this way the question rather than being answered by the scriptures is instead turned into some typical agnostic mystery by the Catholic Church.
Rome wants to contradict the true Elohim and thus they inserted "God" with "was manifest in the flesh". Forgery was the order of the day.
Note: O C which means "who" (Greek O C changed to Θ‾C which means theos "God". Line above with darker ink supports evidence of a modern forgery (ie. after the invention of trinity doctrine and not before)
The same forgery was attempted in the Codex Sinaiticus (??)
I would call this a truly perfect example of what is today called the Mandela Effect, the name for the phenomenon where a fact is distorted by false information (in this case by forgery) which then seems to continue as a fact or truth regardless of the information having been corrected or changed. This type of phenomenon received its name when Nelson Mandela was reported to have died at an earlier time in his life and many continued to believe he was dead despite later reports of his activities. This has indeed happened to the world of Christianity who is living under the Mandela Effect of the Catholic Church. The corruption of 1 Tim 3:16 has been exposed and corrected by numerous translations yet denominations around the world still declare Jesus is God manifest in the flesh and use 1 Tim 3:16 in its corrupted form. So what about you? Are you still under the Mandela Effect of Rome? Another example would be if I were to ask you to insert the missing word in the sentence - "We are saved / justified by ______ alone." Nine out of ten times the answer would undoubtedly be incorrect based upon another corrupted translation made around 500 years ago by Martin Luther! Although most translations do not render it this way at all the heretical slogan has stuck and continues to be used by the false church system just like the "God in the flesh" fable as if it were true scripture - another Mandela Effect. For the correct missing word See Romans 12:28 KJV and compare with James 2:24. - [See our aritcle Faith Alone? for help]
Now, if we investigate 1 Tim 3:16 further, some texts even have "who" or" which" in place of "God". We agree most strongly with "which", since, as we stated previously, it is the mystery of set apartness (pw godliness), that is the subject, not "God" or a person that is being referred to, so "which" fits grammatically.
The following list is from http://www.TrinityTruth.org where 25 translations are shown with the correct translation ( we do not neccessarily endorse any of these 'bibles" in part or whole). They show how, despite the numerous correct translations, the lie or error continues to live on with gusto.

(WNT) “And, beyond controversy, great is the mystery of our religion - that Christ appeared in human form, and His claims justified by the Spirit, was seen by angels and proclaimed among Gentile nations, was believed on in the world, and received up again into glory.”We also note the trinitarian Albert Barnes' explanation below and highlight the fact that he remained a trinitarian all the same. This would mean that Mr Barnes also did not believe Elohim (pw God) in Numbers 23:19, or simply ignored Him, rather hanging to a Catholic fabrication - the Mandela Effect had developed into a lie that was now believed. If one tells a lie often enough it can be accepted as truth by the deceived and the teller of the lie will soon believe his own lie too. The To'rah is clear that there must be 2 or more witnesses to establish a truth and Yah'uah (through Num23;19 and many other places) is not a second witness to a false rendering of 1 Tim 3:16 but a witness who exposes its corruption by the Catholics of Constantine.
Albert Barnes' Notes on the Bible, (1798-1870)
“God - Probably there is no passage in the New Testament which has excited so much discussion among critics as this, and none in reference to which it is so difficult to determine the true reading. It is the only one, it is believed, in which the microscope has been employed to determine the lines of the letters used in a manuscript; and, after all that has been done to ascertain the exact truth in regard to it, still the question remains undecided. It is not the object of these notes to enter into the examination of questions of this nature. A full investigation may be found in Wetstein. The question which has excited so much controversy is, whether the original Greek word was Θεὸς Theos, “God,” or whether it was ὅςhos, “who,” or ὁho, “which.” The controversy has turned, to a considerable degree, on the reading in the “Codex Alexandrinus;” and a remark or two on the method in which the manuscripts in the New Testament were written, will show the true nature of the controversy.
Greek manuscripts were formerly written entirely in capital letters, and without breaks or intervals between the words, and without accents; see a full description of the methods of writing the New Testament, in an article by Prof. Stuart in Dr. Robinson's Biblotheca Sacra, No. 2, pp. 254ff The small, cursive Greek letters which are now used, were not commonly employed in transcribing the New Testament, if at all, until the ninth or tenth centuries. It was a common thing to abridge or contract words in the manuscript. Thus, πρ would be used for πατερpater, “father;” κς for κυριοςkurios, “Lord;” Θς for Θεος Theos, “God,” etc. The words thus contracted were designated by a faint line or dash over them. In this place, therefore, if the original uncials (capitals) were Θ¯C¯, standing for Θεὸς Theos, “God,” and the line in the Θ, and the faint line over it, were obliterated from any cause, it would easily be mistaken for OC - ὅςhos - “who.”
To ascertain which of these is the true reading, has been the great question; and it is with reference to this that the microscope has been resorted to in the examination of the Alexandrian manuscript. It is now generally admitted that the faint line “over” the word has been added by some later hand, though not improbably by one who found that the line was nearly obliterated, and who meant merely to restore it. Whether the letter O was originally written with a line within it, making the reading “God,” it is now said to be impossible to determine, in consequence of the manuscript at this place having become so much worn by frequent examination. The Vulgate and the Syriac read it: “who,” or “which.” The Vulgate is, “Great is the sacrament of piety which was manifested in the flesh.” The Syriac, “Great is the mystery of godliness, that he was manifested in the flesh.”

The Mindless Mystery of the Trinity
So after creating their greater confusion and deeper mystery instead of solving it the Roman Catholics then have further excuse that the trinity is a mystery that cannot be understood by mere mortals and must therefore just be accepted by what they call faith. This is of course is not the correct word - which in Hebrew is emunah /moral fideltiy, conviction to obey the truth [not a lie]. Yahuah has not concealed any trinity but rather made it clear who He is (spirit) and who the Son came as (flesh) throughout scripture, and the one is not the other as stated in Number 23:19 already! It is only false teachers who have concealed the truth with deception.The so called biblical doctrines are not to be accepted as such merely because they are labelled "biblical" or "christian". We do not accept doctrine by mindless so called "faith" a pagan goddess inserted into the translation of the scriptures. We trust not in godesses which we simply carry around as amulets, but we have emunuh (pw faith), an active moral conviction which requires a conscious decision with reasoning and testing of every spirit.
1 John 4:1 Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of Elohim (pw God): because many false prophets are gone out into the world.
2 Hereby know ye
the Spirit of Elohim (pw God): Every spirit that
Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Messiah (pw Christ) is come in the flesh is of
Elohim (pw God):
3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Messiah (pw Christ) is come in the flesh is not of Elohim (pw God): and this is that spirit of anti-Messiah (pw anti-Christ), whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
4 Ye are of Elohim (pw God), little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.
Yah'uah does not create mindless mysteries or secrets for his true disciples
but reveals understandable truth which exposes bogus lies:
"Surely the Master Elohim will do nothing, but he revealeth
his secret unto his servants the prophets."
Prov. 25:2 "It is a splendour of Elohim to conceal a thing but the honour of kings is to search out a matter."
Isaiah 1:18 "Come now, and let us reason together, saith Yahuah ..."
"These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with
all readiness of mind, and searched
the scriptures daily,
whether those things were so"
Acts 18:4 "And he (Paul) reasoned* in the synagogue every sabbath, and persuaded the Yahudim(worshppers of Yah) (false modern word-Jews) and the Greeks.

It must not be forgotten that Sir Isaac Newton a man of almost obessesional study habits also studied the scriptures. Although he did not get all the scriptures right he did soon see through the lies of the Trinty doctrine by applying his mind and was one of the early people to question the corruption of 1 tim 3:16 as discussed in the previous chapter.
The Egghead Godhead?
When one presses a trinitarian to explain the trinity they may make an attempt at using a physical example of the trinity and perhaps some of us settled for this explanation when we still followed the trinity heresy. (Been there done that).
They say :the egg is one egg, right, (Godhead), but it has three parts, the shell, the yolk and the white. That is the trinity they say - all different parts but the same egg. Wow, what a revelation! That sure cleared things up for us, after all it was something to hold onto after being told that the trinity is an unsolvable mystery and we are not to question "G-o-d". Sadly, when some of us found out the truth about the trinity lie all that was left was egg on our own faces, or we could hear the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme playing in the background. This is simply a way out for the "egghead", the thoughtless, mindless "faith" based pagan trinity doctrine and not the emunah (moral conviction) based doctrine which includes a conscious seeking of the truth in the scriptures as they are written and not sermonized by catholic philosophers. When they cannot explain it physically they then try to do away with the physical realm as in the following discussion.
1+1+1=1... Really!?Mr Morrison, a defender of trinitarianism has this to say:
Mr Morrison has no choice then but to deny the material flesh of Messiah coming into the material world in order for his “spiritual trinity” heresy (1+1+1=1) to be able to work.
This is the anti Messiah spirit
The Creator Yah'uah remains one regardless of the physical or the spiritual realm whether before he created (begot) Yah'ushua or after. Yah'uah is still Elohim alone. He created the ordinances (laws) of physics and maths themselves and rules over them and to say that these laws prevent a trinity from making sense already shows from whence the trinity orignates, the minds of worldly men! Yah'uah has told us that he is ONE, if he meant three he would have said so. He is not mathematically challenged in the spiritual world neither in the physical world.
The Author Of Confusion - "in the beginning"Now that we have established that a sound mind and logical reasoning within the scriptures are required to test a doctrine such as the trinity it is obvious that Satan, the author of confusion, would use scripture itself in the hands of deceptive translators and teachers to mislead men from the order of Yahuah's sovereignty and towards disorder.
So we see disorder is to be avoided and To'rah commands that believing wives be under subjections to their believing husbands. The order here is order of rank of authority. The very definition of "order" :
Yahuah has not rearranged the order of his sovereignty at any time. The assembly of true believers does not adopt a Trinity doctrine but declares the order of arrangement (decreed ordinance) in keeping Yahuah Elohim as Elohim ( the All Mighty one) at the very top.
The Trinitarian liars have indeed changed the order (ordinance). This ultimately attempts to make the woman not only head over man but over Elohim with a "Mary mother of God" designation. It then places a fake "Jesus" as "Indeed the Very God" but somehow subject to her, and thus perverts the very sovereignty of Yah'uah and spirtual headship of To'rah keeping men over To'rah keeping women. Thus blasphemy is made against Elohim (the All Mighty One), attempting to strip Him of his sovereignty (pw Godhead). Paul clearly has said that any fiddling with the sovereignty of Yahuah is the device of men just as any idol made of silver or gold makes a futile representation of Yahuah or any false god.
1697 DABAR daw-baw' from 1696; a word; by implication, a matter (as spoken of) or thing; adverbially, a cause:--act, advice, affair, answer, X any such (thing), because of, book, business, care, case, cause, certain rate, + chronicles, commandment, X commune(-ication), + concern(-ing), + confer, counsel, + dearth, decree, deed, X disease, due, duty, effect, + eloquent, errand, (evil favoured-)ness, + glory, + harm, hurt, + iniquity, + judgment, language, + lying, manner, matter, message, (no) thing, oracle, X ought, X parts, + pertaining, + please, portion, + power, promise, provision, purpose, question, rate, reason, report, request, X (as hast) said, sake, saying, sentence, + sign, + so, some (uncleanness), somewhat to say, + song, speech, X spoken, talk, task, + that, X there done, thing (concerning), thought, + thus, tidings, what(-soever), + wherewith, which, word, work. see HEBREW for 01696
3056 LOGOS log'-os from 3004; something said (including the thought); by implication, a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extension, a computation; specially, (with the article in John) the Divine Expression (i.e. Christ):--account, cause, communication, X concerning, doctrine, fame, X have to do, intent, matter, mouth, preaching, question, reason, + reckon, remove, say(-ing), shew, X speaker, speech, talk, thing, + none of these things move me, tidings, treatise, utterance, word, work. see GREEK for 3004
“...was the Word ["dabar" reasoning ] , and the word was with Elohim, and the Word [dabar, logos, reasoning, motive, thoughts, work etc ] was Elohim.”Naturally therefore the Word (logos) was present in the beginning as it was already there before the beginning of life or creation. It was self-existent since it was and is Elohim. The use of past tense “was” in no way excludes the continuous existence of the Word which IS Yahuah since it is eternal backwards and forwards. The later referral to the Word becoming flesh in no way causes this Word to cease to exist as the sovereign Word Yahuah but rather points to it and confirms it as such. The word of Yahuah is what created life.
559 'amar aw-mar' a primitive root; to say (used with great latitude):--answer, appoint, avouch, bid, boast self, call, certify, challenge, charge, + (at the, give) command(-ment), commune, consider, declare, demand, X desire, determine, X expressly, X indeed, X intend, name, X plainly, promise, publish, report, require, say, speak (against, of), X still, X suppose, talk, tell, term, X that is, X think, use (speech), utter, X verily, X yet.
Yahuah refers to Word (logos) as the very thing that surpasses soul, spirit, bone and marrow and gets to the all important core of what makes a man or woman good or evil - it is the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Jer 33:36 And the burden of Yahuah shall ye mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the Words of the living Elohim, of the Master of hosts our Elohim
John 1:2 The same (His word, dabar logos) was in the beginning with Elohim. 3 All things were made by him [Yahuah]; and without him [Yahuah] was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him [Yahuah] was life; and the life was the light of men. [as opposed to darkeness which is the death of men] 5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6 There was a man sent from Yahuah, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness [report, dabar] of the Light [of Yahuah], that all men through him [Yahuah] might believe. 8 He [John] was not that Light [of Yahuah], but was sent to bear witness of that Light [of Yahuah]. 9 That was the true Light [of Yahuah], which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10 He [Yahuah] was in the world, and the world was made by him [Yahuah], and the world knew him [Yahuah] not. 11 He [Yahuah] came unto his own, and his own received him [Yahuah] not. 12 But as many as received him [Yahuah], to them gave he [Yahuah] power to become the sons of Elohim, even to them that believe on his name [Yahuah]: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of Elohim.These three verses refer to Elohim Yahuah entirely. Many make the mistake of context here, thinking this is referring to the Messianic age which it is not. They thus think the "he" who made the world and came into the world is the Messiah when it is not. It refers to Yahuah Elohim when he was in the world with his own people the Hebrews with whom he made a covenant in Sinai but they did not know him ( they did not learn his ways, his Word, logos, "dabar", commands his heart, his intent. He had promised the power to be the sons of Elohim by his own Word (intent). He dwelt amongst them in the tabernacle but they still did not know him - they did not learn his ways but went after their own ways. He had given them at that time too the power to become the sons of Elohim (pw God) but they failed.
Hosea 1:10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea, which cannot be measured nor numbered; and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people, there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living Elohim.Heb 3:9 When your fathers tempted me, proved me, and saw my works forty years.
Heb 3:10 Wherefore I was grieved with that generation, and said, They do alway err in their heart; and they have not known my ways.
After this the context in John 1:14 then only becomes Messianic : Yahuah has sent men to bear witness of the true light of Yahuah - He has used Yochanan (John) and then the first begotten Son of Elohim, Yah'ushua in the flesh so that we can also become the Sons of Elohim.
John 1:14 And the Word [of Yahuah] was made 1 flesh 2 [in Yah'ushua], and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his [Yah'ushua's] splendour, the splendour as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of favour 3, (pw grace) and truth."

this is where the deception comes in - the scripture clearly says "the
word was made flesh" it does not
say Elohim (God) was made flesh. It is Yahuah's word / logos,
his thoughts and intents, work, commandments, oracles, as
already established, it is this that
has been fleshed out in the form of the witness in Yah'ushua who only
speaks and does the thoughts and intents of his Father out of the
abundance of his heart of flesh upon which the word ( logos, commands)
are written. So the word of Yahuah was made flesh upon the heart of his
Son and this word then dwelt among us, it was spoken by the fleshly
tongue and lips of Yah'ushua. Emmanuel - El (Elohim) is with us
by thought and intent (logos) to give us eternal life. Yah'ushua became
the vessel of the word (logos) and spoke it and carried it out by the
spirit of Yahuah, even unto death so that Yah'uah could express the
penalty of sin (without prejudice that it was His own son) upon
Yahushua who bore our sin, thereafter
expressing Yahuah's splendour and word (promise) upon resurrection of
John 5: 35 He (John) was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works (especially speaking demonstrating the Word) which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. 37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the word, and the word was with Elohim, and the word was Elohim. 2 The same was in the beginning with Elohim. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men
John now echoes this same thought and now describes the word with an additional expression -"word of life".
1 John 1:1-3 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard [dabar-Word], which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; 2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) 3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Messiah Yah'ushua.
John now shows that from the beginning it is evident that Yahuah Elohim is the source of life which we can in part witness in this physical world around us that we can see and touch and that it was created by His word (logos, intent) from the beginning. It is an example of Yahuah's emunah (pw faith) in action through his word.
Heb 11:3 Through emunah (pw faith) we understand that the worlds were framed by the word (of life) of Elohim, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.
He is the source of life but that life at the beginning was eternal life since Yahuah is the Word of life eternal and is not Elohim of the dead. Adam and Eve did not comprehend the light, they did not appreciate the state of eternal life until they sinned and received death - separation from Yahuah and his llight. Man has been in that state ever since. Since death and darknesss came man then did not comprehend the light nor the possibility of eternal life either, even though creation, the very beginning of life bears witness of the Word of life - Yahuah. This physical world however is corrupted by sin and dying around us and thus does not fully reveal the promise of eternal life very well as a physical proof to the unbeliever who relies on what he sees alone.
1 John 1:4
And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full. 5
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto
you, that Elohim is light, and in him is no darkness at all. 6 If we
say that we have fellowship with him [Elohim], and walk in darkness,
we lie, and do not the truth: 7 But if we walk in the light, as he
is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood
of Messiah Yah'ushua his Son cleanseth us from all sin.
This, however, was changed when the disciples and or apostles
witnessed Yah'ushua resurrected from the dead. They physcially felt
where the nails were in his hands and ate and drank with him following
his death. This was the eternal life of the Father manifested
in the flesh of his Son, this was the good news passed to us. This is
the Word of life made
flesh, ie. Yah'ushua's dead flesh risen to life by the word of life -
1 Tim 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of Yahuah-likeness (pagan word-godliness): Yahuah (the word of life) was manifestly declared (explicitly announced, asserted, proclaimed, avowed) in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of malakhim (pw angels) , preached unto the heathens (pagan word Gentiles), believed on in the world, received up into splendour.
So, eternal life - the word of life (logos, intent), promise of Yahuah was fully realised and witnessed in the raising of Messiah's flesh from death. through his Son being YHUH-like and obeying the Word of Life.
I John 5:20 And we know that the Son of Elohim is come, and hath given us an understanding (dabar To'rah), that we may know him that is true(YAHUAH), and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Yah'ushua Messiah. This is the true Elohim (YAHUAH), and eternal life (word of life, word, dabar, logos)
Yah'ushua the son has manifestly declared, giving us an understanding of the true Elohim, Word of Life, who gives eternal life which we have witnessed in his Son, who, in the flesh (visibly) proclaimed his Father's word.
John 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of Elohim: and they that hear shall live. 26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself (given immortality after the Father raised him) 27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
1 John 1:7 But if we walk in the light (word of life), as he (Elohim) is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Yah'ushua Messiah his Son cleanseth us from all sin. 8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 9 If we confess our sins, he is trustworthy (pw faithful) and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word (of life) is not in us. 1 My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not (DO NOT TRANSGRESS THE TO'RAH-Word of Life). And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Messiah Yah'ushua the righteous:
John 5:2 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life (Word of Life) ; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
So Yah'ushua was with YHUH in the very beginning but at that stage He was not yet begotten, ie. born of Mary in the flesh in the form of the Son of Elohim (pw God). "Word" can be translated as "Logos" so you could say the idea / thought of Yah'ushua the Son was with YHUH at the very beginning as a plan for our salvation. The Son was hidden in the bosom (bay) of Yahuah like a ship until Yahuah was ready to send him forth by his Ruach (wind, breath).
We see this clear distinction of origin and action in:
1Cor 8:5-7 "For though there be that are called gods* , whether in shamayim (pw heaven) or on in Earth. But to us there is but ONE Elohim, (All Mighty ONE- pw God), the Father, of whom are all things (the source - Word of Life), and we in Him; AND one Yah'ushua Messiah (from the source of life - the Father), by whom are all things and we by him. Howbeit there is not in every man this knowledge."
*(PLURAL mighty ones - idols, eg. trinity idol - god the father, god the son, god the Holi ghost, or idols in general, eg. J-Zeus, Mary, Hope, Grace, Faith, Mercy, Charity, Destiny, papa Pope Easter (Eostre) etc. )
If Paul were a trinitarian he may have written utter nonsense similar to this:
But to us there is but one Elohim (God), the Father AND One Elohim (pw God) Yah'ushuah who is Elohim (pw God).
But Paul does not. He says ONE Yah'ushua Messiah and denounces the idea of plural mighty ones when referring to Elohim (God). There is not the slightest inclination to include earthly or "heavenly gods" in THE SOVEREIGNTY (pw GODHEAD) of ELOHIM.
Here we also see "of whom" ascribed to Elohim (pw God) the Father and "by whom" ascribed to the Son.
"of whom" Greek "ek" denotes origin of all things that exist by Elohim and that includes the Son since that is why he is the Son OF Elohim begotten and created. Over and over again you will see heretics do the unthinkable and exchange the preposition "of" with "is" ie. the Son of Elohim (pw God) is changed to the Son is Elohim (pw God). One cannot do that without committing the damnable sin of adding to scripture.
Paul places the "by whom" description on the shoulders of the Son since "by" (Greek dia) is the preposition denoting the channel of an act. As we saw before Messiah is the causer (not author).This is why Yah'ushua is the WAY or channel by his action of offering (pw sacrifice), love and obedience to the Father. The Father is His, and our, origin to whom we wish to be restored to. Yah'ushua was fully restored from death (under our sin) to the Father's eternal life.
John 20: 27 "Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not without emunah (pw faithless), but believing. 28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Master (pw Lord) and my Elohim (pw God)."
We should not have to go further than "My Master AND my Elohim" but for those who are doubting like Thomas we shall have to.
Regarding John 20:28, the question is
raised concerning Thomas’ double usage of the definite article, most
literally translated: “the lord of me and the god [THEOS] of me.” Did
Thomas use the definite article twice to speak of two persons, first
the son to whom he was directly speaking as “the lord of me” and then
did he turn his attention to the Father in shamayim (pw heaven) in
“the God of me”? If Thomas meant his whole expression to refer to only
one person, only one definite article would have been needed: “the
Master (pw Lord)
and God of me”.
But if Thomas was referring to Yah'ushua when he said “the THEOS of me”, was he thinking that Yah'ushua was YHUH, the only Most High of the universe, standing there before him? If Thomas did indeed refer to Yah'ushua as “the THEOS of me”, we find no such custom all through the Renewed Everlasting Covenant (pw New Testament) of referring to Yah'ushua as “my Elohim (pw God)”, nor “our Elohim (pw God)”. The scripture writers continuously distinguish the Father in shamayim (pw heaven) as “Elohim (pw God)”, and Yah'ushua as the Son of Elohim (pw God), the one, made Master (pw Lord) and Messiah (pw Christ), by Elohim (pw God). If such a claim or doctrine as "Jesus is God” ("Yah'ushua is Yahuah") is so all-important and a truth as many today seem to assume, we should expect such to be clearly stated many times throughout the scriptures, but actually, what we find is just the opposite. So, if Thomas refers to Yah'ushua as his Elohim (pw God) in John 20:28, we have an exception to the general rule, and should seek to determine in what sense Thomas might have thought of Yah'ushua as his Elohim (pw God), in harmony with the general distinction that is made throughout the rest of the Renewed Everlasting Covenant (pw New Testament). Thus, in harmony with the Hebraic tradition of applying the same words that are translated as “elohim (pw god)” to others as rulers, princes, mighty ones, etc. we could say Thomas was really applying one of these options for the word now translated by Roman Vulgate translators as THEOS in adressing Yah'ushua . Theos or God could be rendered as mighty ruler or mighty prince. In fact, the word majesty, is used to describe Yah'ushua's spiritual reign but YHUH is referred to as Majesty on High in contrast to Yah'ushua. Yah'ushua sits next to YHUH upon his throne as you could expect an appointed Prince would do beside His King in keeping with the order of authority.
Now, let's put the verse above into context:
John 20:28 And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord (Master) and my God (Elohim). 29 Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: baruch'd (pw blessed) are they that have not seen, and yet have believed. 30 ¶And many other signs truly did Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: 31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) is the Messiah (pw Christ), the Son of Elohim (pw God); and that believing ye might have life through his name.
This would have been the perfect opportunity for John to say he were Elohim (pw God), but he does not, instead he concludes that these things are written that "you might believe he is the Son of Elohim (pw God)." One would expect the apostle to say something like:
The use of "My Master and My Elohim" rather tie in with
Yahuah is ONE, The Almighty One, Elohim, who excludes plural gods. It is to this ONE Elohim that Thomas praises, after adressing his Master Yah'ushua, separating them as two individuals with the use of "AND". Thomas seperates Yah'ushua from the sovereignty of Elohim, just as Paul described.
Our Saviour AND Our Saviour - But Only One Elohim.Elohim is our saviour who appointed his Son as the means to our salvation. Simply because Elohim is called the Saviour does not mean we call the saviour Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Elohim (pw God). Yahuah is the ultimate self existent Saviour and there is no saviour besides him.
Is 43:11 "I, even I, am Yahuah (pw the Lord); and beside me there is no saviour."
Majesty AND Majesty on High, But One Elohim.
Yah'ushua is described as follows :
Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of his (Yahuah's) splendour (pw glory), and the express image of his (Yahuah's) person (character, Yah-likeness, Michael - he who is like El), and upholding all things by the word of his (Yahuah's) power, when he (Yah'ushua) had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high (Yahuah);
To put into context the misplaced position and authority of Yah'ushua, one need only look at a popular idolatrous song (pw hymn) that was, and still is, sung in many "churches" :
worship His Majesty
Unto Jesus, be all glory,
Power and praise
Majesty, Kingdom authority
Flow from His throne,
Unto his own, His anthem raise.
So exalt, lift up on high
The Name of Jesus
Magnify, come glorify,
Christ Jesus the King
Majesty, worship His Majesty
Jesus who died, now glorified,
King of all Kings.
: Yah'ushua is being called Majesty, capital "M" as would be
referred to YHUH Elohim (pw God), but he is not the Majesty on High
although he is
majestic (having authority from the Father).
This seemingly innocent song usurps the throne of YHUH the Almighty (All Mighty) with a false Jesus, who, as the song says, must receive ALL power, ALL glory, and ALL Praise. All Praise and All Splendour (pw Glory) and All Power is given to YHUH through his Son's accomplishments. This is not to say Yah'ushua should not receive any praise as he too is praiseworthy, but he does not receive ALL of it since he returns the authority back to his Father (1 Cor 15:28) so that the Father may be ALL in ALL, the Almighty ONE.
Revelations clearly makes the distinction as to who is receiving ALL the splendour (pw- glory) and worship :
Rev 14:7 "Saying with a loud voice, Fear Elohim (pw God), and give splendour (pw glory) to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made shamayim (pw heaven), and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters."
Rev 4:6 "And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind. 7 And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle. 8 And the four beasts had each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes within: and they rest not day and night, saying, kodesh (pw Holy), kodesh, kodesh, Master (pw Lord) Elohim (pw God) Almighty, which was, and is, and is to come. 9 And when those beasts give splendour(pw glory) and honour and thanks to him that sat on the throne, who liveth for ever and ever, 10 The four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne, and worship him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 Thou art worthy, O Supreme Master (pw Lord), to receive splendour and honour and power: for thou hast created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created."
is clearly YHUH, the creator of shamayim (pw heaven) and earth and also
creator of Yah'ushua His Son who is begotten. YHUH is sitting
His throne, since the Lamb
(Yah'ushua) is the one who takes the book out of YHUH's right hand and
is worthy to open it as follows :
Rev Chap 5:1 "And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw a strong malakh (pw angel) proclaiming with a loud voice, Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof? 3 And no man in shamayim (pw heaven), nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon. 4 And I wept much, because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon. 5 And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof. 6 And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of Elohim (pw God) sent forth into all the earth. 7 And he came and took the book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne. 8 And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. 9 And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to Elohim (pw God) by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; 10 And hast made us unto our Elohim (pw God) kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth."
From the above you should be able to see the distinction between YHUH and Yah'ushua
Hebrews Chapter OneHeb 1, like John 1, has been popularly used to support "Jesus is God" and that he is the Creator himself. This idea leads to the worship of the Son as Elohim (pw God). This of course is a ridiculous abomination and contradicts the entire Everlasting Convenant (EC) (pw OT). Nowhere in the entire Hebrew translation of the EC is such a command given or intimated. As you will see once again, translation is key to the misguidance and deception. We will study Hebrews 1 verse by verse and use the actual cross references used by Shaul (Paul) from the Hebrew Tanakh, Everlasting Covenant (pw Old Testament). We will then summarise with the alternate correct translation of Hebrews 1 at the end.
Here Shaul makes the clear declaration that it is Yahuah Elohim (pw God) who has used men to speak to us in the past. This statement then immediately prepares us for the acceptance of yet another prophet who he speaks BY, namely the Son of man from shamayim, the very Son of Yahuah, but not Yahuah himself, Yah'ushua is another mouthpiece, the ulitmate one.
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
It is clear that the Son of man, as established in the beginning of this article, is the Son of Yahuah who is not Elohim but the word made flesh, in other words, the speaker / mouthpiece of Yahuah who has now been used to speak to us when He was sent by the Father from shamayim (pw heaven). He also has been appointed over all things as a majestic / royal heir ( a son to the Majesty on High - Elohim). Now we get "by whom also he made the worlds" . This is where many get fooled. The Greek dia for "by" again may mean a number of things.
So it is clear that it should read
"FOR whom also he made (poieo) the worlds."
Here it is clear that the worlds were made by the Father specifically so that they could be given to the Son who is clearly stated as "heir". The heir receives an inheritance, and what He inherits, whilst being appointed over the worlds, are us His children (His riches Rev 5:12, not silver and gold) who are obedient Sons of Yahuah, as Shaul quotes later in chapter 2.
Our argument is further strengthened by the fact that "made" (poieo) here is probably not intended. "Ginomai" seems to be used more, so when referring to "made", as used in the following verse 4 of Heb 1, referring to how the Son has been "made" (ginomai) better than the malakhim (pw angels). "poieo", unlike "ginomai", includes the very specific meaning: "give"
4160 poieo poy-eh'-o apparently a prolonged form of an obsolete primary; to make or do (in a very wide application, more or less direct):--abide, + agree, appoint, X avenge, + band together, be, bear, + bewray, bring (forth), cast out, cause, commit, + content, continue, deal, + without any delay, (would) do(-ing), execute, exercise, fulfil, gain, give, have, hold, X journeying, keep, + lay wait, + lighten the ship, make, X mean, + none of these things move me, observe, ordain, perform, provide, + have purged, purpose, put, + raising up, X secure, shew, X shoot out, spend, take, tarry, + transgress the law, work, yield.

1096 ginomai ghin'-om-ahee a prolongation and middle voice form of a primary verb; to cause to be ("gen"-erate), i.e. (reflexively) to become (come into being), used with great latitude (literal, figurative, intensive, etc.):--arise, be assembled, be(-come, -fall, -have self), be brought (to pass), (be) come (to pass), continue, be divided, draw, be ended, fall, be finished, follow, be found, be fulfilled, + God forbid, grow, happen, have, be kept, be made, be married, be ordained to be, partake, pass, be performed, be published, require, seem, be showed, X soon as it was, sound, be taken, be turned, use, wax, will, would, be wrought.
Thus we firmly believe it should be
"for whom also he gave (poieo) the worlds.
3 Who being the brightness of his (Elohim's) honour (pw glory), and the express image of his person (Elohim's nature), and upholding (Greek phero) all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Here again we see that the Son is subject as a spokesperson / mouthpiece expressing the image (representation) of the nature of Elohim by word and action. Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) is by the trinitarians made to appear as some sovereign god who is the upholder of all things in this sentence, but it is Elohim (pw God) who is sovereign. The word used here is "phero", the sense is toward the response of the servant who upholds what is given to him. The To'rah given by the Father is what is upheld. In fact, it is magnified and made honorable by the Son as prophesied (Is 42:19-21). He observed all things given to him under the authority of Yah's To'rah
Yah'ushua does not "uphold" all things in the sense that he is the master of the universe and holds the world together that He created himself. No! Neither is He the source of how or what that upholding should be, but more accurately, as the definition implies, "endures" those things which have been appointed to him or "bears" or "observes", indeed, lays all things (what more did He lay down of his own accord than his own life given to him). The "all things", all the sin in the same verse from which He has purged us. He endured the punishment on the torture stake by himself / alone ( Mark 15:34 My Elohim, My Elohim why hast thou forsaken me) by his own offering of his own body, but by the command (word) (Greek rhema) of Elohim's power. This should already set the alarm ringing in your head. That Yah'ushua offered himself separately under the command of his Father and endured it HIMSELF by Elohim's power which sustained him even while Yahuah ELOHIM forsook him. And of course the obvious two Majesties again show the Majestic Son as seperate, not the same, as He sits next to his Father, the pre-eminent Majesty on High.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day (Greek - semeron) have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
Psalm 2:7 I will declare the decree: YAHUAH (pw the LORD) hath said unto me (Yah'ushua), Thou art my Son; this day (Hebrew - yowm) have I begotten thee.
John 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself.
John 5: 24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my (the Son's) word, and believeth on him (the Father) that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. 25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the SON OF ELOHIM (pw God): and they that hear shall live.
John 5: 27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of Elohim (pw God) worship him.
"In the Septuagint these very words occur in Deuteronomy 32:43, where they are inserted in the Song of Moses. But they are not in the Hebrew, nor are they in all the copies of the Septuagint. The Hebrew is, "Rejoice, O ye nations with his people; for he will avenge the blood of his servants, and will render vengeance to his adversaries."
The Septuagint is, "Rejoice ye heavens with him; and let all the angels of God worship him. Let the nations rejoice with his people, and let all the sons of God be strong in him, for he has avenged the blood of his sons."
But there are objections to our supposing that the apostle had this place in his view, which seem to me to settle the matter.
(2) a second is, that it is omitted in all the ancient versions except the Septuagint*.
We fully agree that Deut 32:43 is a weak argument for a source of Shaul's quotation in Heb 1 vs 6 and is a really a far stretch to try and make Shaul or the scriptures appear to command direct worship to the Son by all the "angels". In the meantime, Barne's suggests another possible reference:
The probability is, that the writer here referred to Psalm 97:7, (in the Septuagint, Psalm 96:7). In that place, the Hebrew is, "worship him, all ye gods" כל אלהים kaal 'elohiym - "all ye 'elohiym."
So we offer two far more obvious background texts that the Messianic Yahudim (pw Jews) would have been familiar with in hearing Shaul's quote or paraphrase. Shaul would be preaching mostly from David (Psalms) at this point, as a whole, probably due to the flow of his sentences. He would have perhaps said in "another place" if it were a different book other than Psalms
1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?
2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against YHUH (pw the LORD), and against his anointed (mashiyach - annointed), saying,
3 Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.
4 He that sitteth in the shamayim (pw heavens) shall laugh: Adonay (the supreme Master - YHUH, NOT Master Yah-ushua) (pw the Lord) shall have them in derision.
5 Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
6 Yet have I set my king (melek) upon my holy hill of Zion.
7 I (Yah'ushua) will declare the decree: Yahuah (pw the LORD) hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.
10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.
11 Serve YHUH (pw the LORD) with fear, and rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Baruch'd (pw blessed) are all they that put their trust (confidence) in him.
430 'elohiym el-o-heem' plural of 433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:--angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty. see HEBREW for 0433
Perhaps it is possible that the translations for this verse have been merged through the corruption of the Septuagint with the Hebrew translation. I will show how corrupted the so-called "New Testament " translation really is when we get to verse 8 of Heb 1 and compare it with the Hebrew of the Everlasting covenant (pw Old testament). Or perhaps Shaul is paraphrasing from a combined number of references in Psalms.
In the meantime, we see that Shaul is saying, as Yahuah brings Messiah into the world again, remembering that it is by YHUH's own will when that will happen, unbeknownst to the Son even (1 John 3:20, Mark 13:32), and that when he does it it obviously relates to the opposing judges who he comes to judge as well as the kings since Messiah bears the name King of Kings. We see also inheritance mentioned, as tied in with Shaul's quote of the world given to the heir in Heb 1:2, where he receives the heathen (pw Gentiles) children who believe. They are mentioned in verse 8 of Psalms 2 as a possession or where the heathens are destroyed who do not, v9, dashing them to pieces.
Finally, in the last verses of Psalm 2:
12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Baruch'd (pw blessed) are all they that put their trust (confidence) in him.
So it is clear that there is no clear command to worship Yah'ushua in the sense of worship that has been commanded as idolatry by Yah'uah elsewhere, He is however honoured as the appointed Son of Yahuah.
So v11 states, serve YHUH with fear. This is the beginning of wisdom and it is not the beginning of foolish trinitarian heresy where Messiah is being served with fear and trembling above Yahuah, it is ALMIGHTY YAHUAH who receives that. This is clearly the first commandment level of worship - with all your heart, mind and soul, etc. Shaul calls it reasonable / expected service to Elohim (Rom 12:1) Then, juxtaposed against that mighty backdrop of pre-eminince of worship is the command in verse 12, to kiss the Son lest he be angry. Yet, with this simple command comes a threat to you if it be ignored: Messiah's wrath and your death. So Messiah is mentioned, and so is the attitude and warning pointed towards he who betrays the Messiah (as did Judas, with a kiss of falsehood rather than accceptance and tender affection. It was the opposite of the qodesh kiss with which the brethren are to greet each other.) We believe it could closely be compared with the verbal expression of the term A-mn (pw Amen), an expression or affirmation of firmness in support.
Some conclusions that should finally result from Ps 2 11,12:
1)This certainly causes any idea, at least of worshiping the Son, of him being more than or equal to the Father, to be flushed down the toilet.
2)This still seems to contradict what Shaul is supposedly to have quoted from a Greek text in Heb 1:6 And let all the angels of Elohim (pw God) worship him.
3)This certainly describes two separate parties - the Father who must be served with one's whole life and being, and a Son who must be, as it were, "kissed", accepted as the Messiah.
4)To serve the Son with fear, and kiss, or accept the Father is clearly not the order here.
5)Yah'ushua fears the Father
It is clear that if we do not obey the Father that it is false worship and rebellion, witchcraft or idolatry. If Messiah the Son does not worship the Father Elohim as his own Elohim then he is not to be kissed, he is a false Messiah, and that is the basis of false trinitarian "Jesus" who does away with his Father's To'rah. His Son, Yah'ushua, does worship, fear, serve and obey the Father, as we ought.
If we do not acknowledge the exalted position of the true Son in obedience to the Father, that is rebellion and witchcraft - idolatry. If we acknowledge the Son beyond the exalted position given by his Father to a place not appointed by the Father, then that is idolatry. The place of the Son is not to usurp the Father - NEVER! He does not become Elohim!
22 Ye worship ye know not what: we know WHO* we worship: for salvation is of the Yahudim (worshippers of Yahuah) (pw Jews).
23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
24 Elohim is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Thus the spirit and truth of Messiah is to teach worship of the Father, not worship of the Son.
Thus we do not worship Elohim by worshiping the Son but by esteeming him as an obedient Son worthy of honour. And thus we obey, serve and fear Yah'uah who says his Son has pleased him well.
Christian teachers try to say that the "angels" (malakhim) did in fact worship "Jesus", as supposedly quoted by Shaul in Hebrews 1:6, when he was born, and so fulfillied this prophecy. But they provide no scriptures. We see the opposite.
Luk 2:11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Messiah the Master (pw Christ the Lord).
Luk 2:12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
Luk 2:13 And suddenly there was with the malakh a multitude of the shamayim (pw heavenly) host PRAISING ELOHIM (pw God), and saying,
Luk 2:14 SPLENDOUR TO ELOHIM in the highest, and on earth shalom (pw peace), good will toward men.
Thus far we still have not seen Shaul's quote being confirmed anywhere in the "Old Testament". But let's look at our second background scripture, Psalm 138, a short psalm but not as clear about the Messiah at first glance. However, on careful inspection we see it to be prophetic about the fact that Yahuah's covenant is everlasting for those that keep covenant with him and keep his commands, and that there will be redemption from past sins as promised.
2 Baw'rak (pw bless) YHUH (pw LORD), O my soul, and forget not all his benefits:
3 Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases;
4 Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies;
5 Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.
6 YHUH (pw LORD) executeth righteousness and judgment for all that are oppressed.
7 He made known his ways unto Moses, his acts unto the children of Israel.
8 YHUH (pw LORD) is compassionate (pw merciful) and channuwn - kind ( pw gracious), slow to anger, and plenteous in compassion (pw mercy).
9 He will not always chide: neither will he keep his anger for ever.
10 He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.
11 For as the shamayim (pw heaven) is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.
12 As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
13 Like as a father pitieth his children, so YHUH (pw LORD) pitieth them that fear him.
14 For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.
15 As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.
16 For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
17 But the mercy of YHUH (pw LORD) is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;
18 To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.
19 YHUH (pw LORD) hath prepared his throne in the heavens; and his kingdom ruleth over all.
20 Baw'rak (pw bless) YHUH (pw LORD), ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word.
21 Baw'rak (pw bless) ye YHUH (pw LORD), all ye his hosts; ye ministers of his, that do his pleasure.
22 Baw'rak (pw bless) YHUH (pw LORD), all his works in all places of his dominion: baw'rak (pw bless) YHUH (pw LORD), O my soul.
Here it becomes clear as to what Shaul is paraphrasing. Here we have the first possible evidence as in the Hebrew text of malakhim (pw angels) giving worship, yet here again they are worshipping Yahuah concerning his healing, redemption and forgiveness vs 3,4. It mentions that Yahuah has prepared the kindgom and throne. The throne for who? Himself? No, he has existed for eternity. It is for Messiah to sit at his right hand and his appointed kingdom to rule over. Thus Messiah is brought (introduced) into the world (his kingdom) to rule over until his second coming. At first it does not seem obvious where but I will show you
Heb 12:18 For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest,
19 And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more:
That Yahuah must be baw'rak'd (pw blessed) is commanded to his malakhim (pw angels), which is actually men, messengers or ambassadors of Yahuah (2 Cor 5:20). Messiah is such an ambassador himself, but as Shaul has already indicated, higher than the malakhim of shamayim, the hosts of shamayim. The "ye ministers of his" vs 130:21 ties in exactly with Shaul in his very next verse
It is obvious now how Psalm 103 flows into Psalm 104 as they both carry the theme of beginning with, Barak Yahuah oh my soul, and both ending with a similar phrase. It is no wonder since we have no doubt that Psalm 103 is thus where Shaul is quoting from in verse 6. However, we still did not see any reference to worshipping Yah'ushua but instead to Baw'rak or praise Yahuah. If Psalm 104 is anything to go by, Shaul is confirming that Yahuah gives life to all, including his Son, by his spirit.
Is Shaul saying the malakhim (pw angels) must really worship the Son? Let's look again at what the translation claims Shaul had said.
Deu 32:17 They sacrificed unto devils, not to Elohim (pw God); to mighty ones (pw gods) whom they knew not, to new mighty ones (pw gods) that came newly up, whom your fathers feared not.
Now, what was the purpose of Shaul's lesson to the Messianics? He was preaching from Psalms to confirm the Messiah's position and rank as High Priest, his beginning, his being created (begotten), his position higher than malakhim (pw angels) and the honour that should be given him, but never his worship as Elohim. Quite the contrary since Jews were connected to angel worship and superstitious practices which scripture denounces. So why are we presented with Shaul saying something else? It is simply corrupted translation which gets more diabolical, as you will see.
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the mighty ones (elohiym) of Elohim (pw God) worship him
Shaul says "and again" but does he? The word "And" here is from Greek "de" "a primary particle (adversative or continuative); but, and, etc.: - also, and, but, moreover, now [often unexpressed in English]."
and "again" is Greek "palin"
Probably from the same as G3823 (through the idea of oscillatory repetition); (adverbially) anew, that is, (of place) back, (of time) once more, or (conjugationally) furthermore or on the other hand: - again.
"Again" would not fit since the first begotten is being brought into the world for the first time here, not "again", and neither is this statement "again" as if it had been said before.
So we have Shaul possibly rather saying But on the other hand as though clearly putting an end to the idea that because the Son rightfully has such pre-eminence now above the malakhim "angels" and is called a Son, that the next step might be to wrongfully think Elohim expects him to be equally worshipped or worshipped in his place. Well, is that not the very challlenge that the Son had himself when he was accused of being equal to Elohim, ie. a wrong perception that he siezes equal worship as the Sovereign simply because he said he was the Son of Elohim (We cover this False Accusation further on- click if you wish to go there now on a separate page ). Shaul is saying, contrary to what might be thought now, that the Son's existence automatically demands MORE worship going to the Father by his act of bringing him into the world. So "on the other hand" Shaul is saying, contrary to popular pagan belief and thought, the realisation is that the Messiah broadcasts the splendour, love, power, etc. of his Father to the whole earth. There should be no fear of a Messiah who is an idol but He is the Son who strengthens the Shema just as "saviour" Moshe (Moses) did but with lesser splendour see Hebrews 3:1-6.
17 For ELOHIM sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
18 He that believeth on him is not condemned (it is not idolatry since he brings splendour to the Father): but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of ELOHIM.
19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
21 But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are WROUGHT IN ELOHIM (not the Son).
The whole earth (heathens) now may learn of Yahuah and his kindness to redeem all who will repent by sending his Son, and those that do praise Yahuah. The final help comes when we realise who is speaking here
We have already seen in Luke 2:13,14 that all the malakhim (pw angels), the whole host in shamayim (pw heaven) certainly praise and give splendour to Elohim in the highest when the Son is announced to the world. So it is simple to see that Yahuah Elohim is saying prophetically that they should fully worship He, himself, and not the firstbegotten. So no matter where this quote is from that Shaul uses it has been twisted to contradict how the prophetic worship of malakhim (pw angels) would occur when his Son was indeed brought into the world. They worshipped the Father Elohim on the highest, not the Son.
We then move to the next Psalm which we believe has significance against the idea that Shaul is focussing on a so-called "Son worship" as if He be Elohim.
1 A Psalm of David. I will praise thee with my whole heart: before the mighty ones (pw gods) will I sing praise unto thee.
2 I will worship toward thy holy temple, and praise thy name for thy lovingkindness and for thy truth: for thou hast magnified thy word above all thy name.
3 In the day when I cried thou answeredst me, and strengthenedst me with strength in my soul.
4 All the kings of the earth shall praise thee, O LORD, when they hear the words of thy mouth.
5 Yea, they shall sing in the ways of the LORD: for great is the glory of the LORD.
6 Though the LORD be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off.
7 Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.
8 The LORD will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
Heb 1:7 And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
Heb1: 8 But unto (Greek "pros") the Son [he saith], Thy throne, O Elohim (pw God), is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
4314 pros pros a strengthened form of 4253; a preposition of direction; forward to, i.e. toward (with the genitive case, the side of, i.e. pertaining to; with the dative case, by the side of, i.e. near to; usually with the accusative case, the place, time, occasion, or respect, which is the destination of the relation, i.e. whither or for which it is predicated):--about, according to , against, among, at, because of, before, between, (where-)by, for, X at thy house, in, for intent, nigh unto, of, which pertain to, that, to (the end that), X together, to (you) -ward, unto, with(-in). In the comparative case, it denotes essentially the same applications, namely, motion towards, accession to, or nearness at. see GREEK for 4253
The words "he saith" are not even there in the original and have been added, further corrupting the scripture.
It should be
Shaul then confirms that David prophesies of Yah'ushua, that he indeed fulfills the definition of the prophesied sceptre of righteousness since Messiah too has loved righteousness, fully preaching (pleroo) the law (To'rah) whilst also offering his body as atonement for us to keep his To'rah in the future (establish the To'rah as Shaul says Rom 3:31). Yah'ushua hated iniquity so much that he overcame it with good, giving his own body as atonement. (Rom 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.) Thus as the sceptre of righteousness he has been appointed as judge by his Father. It is unequivocally evident that Shaul reminds his audience that David is not a trinitarian, David prophesies that the annointed and appointed King Yahu'shua has an Elohim, just as an earthly king like himself is under Elohim - He does not become Elohim, He is not called Elohim. The verse is not addressing Yah'ushua here as "God" and then saying He has a "God", that is ridiculous. The original verse from Psalms 45:7 does not have "even" added, it is simply
Continuing here with the idea of hands, Yahuah is the Soverein who upholds the sceptre (Yah'ushua) in his hand. We recall earlier how we said Yah'uah is the upholder of all things, not Yah'ushua. Yah'ushua, however, bears all things appointed to him. Yah'uah is the Creator of all things, the very foundation He created is an extension of his upholding power, which literally and physically upholds us upon the earth. However, we willl have trinitarian Christians telling us that "Jesus / J-Zesus is the Creator. Consider the servant Moses who was given splendour (pw glory)in his "house" congregation of beleivers, however the greater splendour is given to the builder of the house. Yah'ushua is the buider of the living stones, we his congregation. But finally the greatest splendour is given to Elohim the creator of ALL THINGS, US MOSES AND HIS SON. Shaul cannot make it any clearer that the highest honour is given to Elohim and Yah'ushua does not replace or take that from him. See Heb 3:1-6.
Confusion is made possible by the use of "Lord" in Heb 1:10.
LORD, Lord - Its all Greek to me.In the Everlasting Covenant (pw Old testament) of KJV and others, the translators replaced the word, Master, with, Lord. They also replaced YHUH (Yahuah) with LORD. This creates enough deception and confusion already. "YHUH", "Yahuah" corrupted to LORD was done over 7000 times in the "OT". Then the translators had a further field day in promoting the trinity doctrine even further when it came to the Renewed Everlasting Covenant (pw New Testament) translated from the Greek. Here they go further to ignorantly (or deceptively) translate Lord for Master, which could refer to Yahuah or the Son. One is totally confused. They then corrupt "Yahuah / YHUH" into "Lord" as well. This then is even worse than the Everlasting Covenant (OT), having not even a distinction between "LORD" in uppercase and "Lord" capitalised, which would at least clearly distinguish it as referring to YHUH, Yah'ushua or Master.
Were it not for quotes by Yah'ushua and the apostles themselves quoting from the Everlasting Covenant (OT) we would not be able to pick up on their shenanigans, but they are clearly exposed and shamed. However, many still fall prey to their trickery, sadly even sisters of the harlot "church", Baptists, for example, who use such verses as proof of their trinity heresy that "Jesus is God", or as they put it, where "Jesus is recognized as God"
We see that as we continue all the way to verse 13, nothing has changed. It is still Yah'uah Elohim who is being spoken of here as the Creator
11 They shall perish; but thou remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment;
12 And as a vesture shalt thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy years shall not fail.
13 But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?
it is Elohim who tells Messiah to sit at his right hand, thus it is Yahuah who is the Creator spoken of here.
The original verse Shaul is quoting from is from Psalm 102, a prayer, which begins as
Jumping down to verse 12:
25 Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands.
26 They shall perish, but thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt thou change them, and they shall be changed:
27 But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end.
Finally, our conclusion of Hebrews 1 with corrected translation as well as explanations in brackets:
2 hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, for whom also he made/ gave the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his (Elohim's) honour (pw glory), and the express image of his person (Elohim's nature), and bearing / enduring all things by the word of his (Elohim's) power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high (Elohim);
4 Being made so much better than the malakhim (pw angels), as he hath by inheritance obtained (from the Father) a more excellent name than they (a name which contains the Father's appointed authority, and his name Yah as in Yah'ushua)
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6 but on the other hand when he (Yah'uah) bringeth in the firstbegotten (Yah'ushua) into the world, he (David) saith, And let all the malakhim (pw angels) of Elohim (pw God) worship him (Elohim)
7 And of the malakhim (pw angels) he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
8 But pertaining to the Son, Thy throne O Elohim is for ever and ever a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.
9 Thou (Yah'ushua) hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore Elohim (pw God), THY Elohim (pw God), hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
Trinity - A New Revelation?The book of Revelations was written much later and is the last words of scripture. This book is often titled "the Revelation of Jesus" and it is no wonder that the trinitarians try to create an idea as if Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) is being revealed to John finally in his fullness as Elohim (pw God) after allegedly being a secret or mystery prior to that. I have indeed heard such an idea being taught. This far-fetched idea would make all the apostles liars and in the dark as far as true witnesses then. They had to witness Messiah first-hand and they declared him as the Son of Elohim and never Elohim. Messiah as the light (true witness) to Paul also then would not be the blinding light of truth, if htis were the case, that knocked him to the ground, but, instead, some dark or obscure light.
But the light was not hid under a bed, it was openly revealed:
Mat 16:15 "He (Yah'suhua) saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Messiah, the SON OF the living Elohim (pw God). 17 And Yah'ushua answered and said unto him, baruch'd (pw blessed) art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in shamayim (pw heaven)."
So if a trinity was supposedly not revealed prior to the book of Revelations then a trinitarian cannot use those prior scriptures to prove any trinty before a supposed later revelation to John, otherwise such scriptures surely would have clearly revealed a trinity to those who were direct eyewitness of the Messiah - the very Apostles themselves. No such thing happened. He was revealed by the Father himself as the SON OF THE LIVING ELOHIM! The trinitarian cannot have his cake and eat it.
Seeing Dimly Or Just being Dull Of Hearing?When Paul says
We shall know His form and appearance as we know our own. Note also that this happens after resurrection. This revelation then does not happen with the book of revelations and neither does it happen upon this earth. So, again, this is the revelation of Yahuah's appearance and not the fabled later revelation that "Jesus is God".
Alpha and OmegaWho is the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, First and Last? Let's have a look.
We see the use of "Alpha and Omega, begining and end" four times, and all only in Revelations. There may have been confusion for many of us at one time or another as to who the Alpha and Omega is, and this title is often incorrectly used as proof of Yah'ushua and Elohim being one and the same. Again there may be a temptation to believe this is a later revelation revealed to John. We shall cover the four references.
In this very first reference Yahuchanon (corrupted name: John) tells us who the Alpha and Omega is here. It is the Son of man. So there is no mistake that this is Yah'ushua and not Elohim Yah'uah.
2) Rev 1:8 "I am Aleph (Alpha) and Tau (Omega), the beginning and the ending, saith the supreme Master (pw Lord), which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty*."
Now in this verse we see this word Almighty*. In the renewed everlasting covenant (falsely called New Testament) scriptures it is only present in Revelations (8 times) besides once in 2 Corinthians.
3841 pantokrator pan-tok-rat'-ore from 3956 and 2904; the all-ruling, i.e. God (as absolute and universal sovereign):--Almighty, Omnipotent. see GREEK for 3956 see GREEK for 2904
It is clear that this is the All Mighty One, Elohim, "pantokrator" This would perhaps be a better word for that troublesome Roman Vulgate invention "theotes" - Godhead or would at least make a clearer definition of Yahuah as the Sovereign, Absolute, Omnipotent, All Ruling One.
So now we have two Alpha and Omegas, but is this possible? The trinitarians immediately would declare:
Of course since they are one and the same They thus try to make us believe 2=1. What about 3=1? Their other so-called "god" the "holi ghost" is missing at this stage once again!
Whilst two parties may share a similar or same description, it in no way follows that they are one and the same. Considering further that Alpha and Omega on its own does not necessarily define sovereignty or eternity backwards and forwards it merely defines a starting point and an end in the dimension of time. The Almighty, however, does not have a starting point but he chooses to do whatever he likes and appoints a starting point or an end point according His own will here on Earth. The Almighty is eternal backwards and forwards but when He created time he was obviously there at its beginning, thus from creation's point of view he was its beginning and he is its end when the Earth and shamayim are destroyed and replaced. We shall see this context soon in this section. However, He is not bound by time or the events of creation, neither its destruction, since he supersedes those dimensions. It is clear that this descriptive name, Alpha and Omega, in John 1:8 is for Yahuah this time but obtains seperate ownership from that applied to Yah'ushua in John 1:10 by the additional use this time of "who was, who is and which is to come, the Almighty". This clearly distinguishes him from the other Alpha and Omega who is Yah'ushua, who was merely first and last from his time of being begotten forwards, including when he became the last Adam ("the first begotten of the dead "- see Rev 1:5, 1 Cor 15:45), resurrected and then made eternal by Yahuah.
3) John 21:6 "I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely."
In this third instance we may be tempted to assume this is now the Messiah who we are accustomed to know as the "water of life". However, the source of that life is Yahuah and it does not take more than a verse later to see who is talking, it is the very source:
John 21:7 "He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim (God), and he shall be my son."
Immediately after Elohim we see "son" is mentioned. He thus reminds us that he is the Father, the source here, he is the beginning of the Son and the beginning of us who shall be Sons of Elohim, by inheritance through his Son who is our beginning, Alpha (our forerunner of emunah (pw faith)).
So the picture is becoming clearer again as to why the Alpha and Omega names are being used back and forth for the Son and the Father, but each time with a clearer understanding of their context, their action, their function, their rank. This is what Hebrew names are all about. The name has purpose and meaning. It is not a transliteration without scriptural meaning (like the awful meaningless transliteration J-E-S-U-S which DOES NOT mean saviour as theologians have tried to force. If it were so "soter" would be part of the name since "soter" means saviour - II Peter 3:18 "our Master (pw Lord) and Saviour (soter) Jesus (no soter) Messiah (pw Christ)." The true Hebrew meanings on the other hand explain the seperate rank and function of the Son and the Father while maintaining unity of purpose and thus they share the name Alpha and Omega.Let us go back in the passage for even more context.
Here it becomes obvious again that Elohim HIMSELF will dwell with his people, something that has not happened before since his Son has told us no man has seen or even heard Elohim, save the first begotten Son of Elohim. This then further qualifies the Father as another beginning for us in the new shamayim( pw heaven) and the new earth created for us, and a new beginning, being with us, dwelling with him for the FIRST (ALPHA) TIME ever.
This then brings us to the name Emmanuel - El is with us. Here Elohim is truly Emmanuel, here the consummation, goal, full realisation of that name is made by the Son who was given that name as a memorial to his function to make this happen for Yahuah's honour (pw glory). We see descriptive names given throughout scripture to various people in the scriptures which prophetically point to a future event or describe something that Yahuah is highlighting at the time.
Now that we have established shamayim (pw heaven) as a keyword relating to Alpha and Omega for Elohim, here, lets see the final verse:
we know that it is Messiah Yah'ushua speaking since he refers to "His"
commandments and not "my" commandments thus making it clear that he
keeps the Father's commandments (To'rah) as we are commanded to (John
couple of verses later
reveals it is, indeed, Yah'ushua.
Rev 22:16 " I Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) have sent mine malakh (pw angel) to testify unto you these things in the assemblies (pw churches) I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
He mentions his fleshly end, last Adam (Omega) again as offspring of David but also reminds us that he is David's root (Alpha) in the flesh. We know that the foundation (idea / conception) of his flesh being slain was already from the foundation (idea / conception) of the world, the beginning of our or creation's time (alpha-omega period of the current earth and shamayim (pw heaven)).
So, to summarise, Messiah is first mentioned as Alpha and Omega, and then Elohim twice, finishing with Messiah at the closure of the scriptures, ie. literally these are His final words from Yahuah to us.So we see that Messiah Yah'ushua the son is the Alpha and Omega beginning and end of the things of this earth, as appointed to by his Father. Yahuah too is the beginning BUT of ALL creation including his own son and the end of the earth when he makes a new earth. Thus the rank of the Son and purpose was and is to do his Father's will on Earth, ie. be the Alpha and Omega upon Earth, to be the "causer" of Emmanuel (Elohim with us) so that Yahuah the Alpha and Omega can be the true Emmanuel, Elohim with us, in the new earth and new shamayim, the all in all (see 1 Cor 15:28 again).
ConclusionYahuah, as well as Yah'ushua, are the Alpha and Omega, Aleph and Tau, the first and last letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Hence we see them both described throughout Psalms 119, the longest Psalm, broken up into 21 segments corresponding to the Hebrew Alphabets, Aleph to Tau. Although Messiah and Yah'ushua are not described specifically as Aleph and Tau within Psalm 119, they are each Aleph and Tau as revealed in Revelations.
Both are the beginnings of different things: Yahuah is the source, beginning of the Word making up To'rah and creation. Messiah is the beginning of the ultimate witness or declaration of the Word, for which he was willing to die for- the causer (beginner) and ender (consummater) of our emunah (pw faith) as we respond to the Word of life. Two beginnings: Yahuah began life in his Son, His Son's life began to conquer death.
Alpha and Omega being used interchangeably between the Son Yah'ushua (Son of Man) and the Father Yahuah can only be falsely used by trinitarians to mean they are one and the same holders of that name (Jesus=God fallacy). This would be as ridiculous as saying the two Simons in the scriptures are the same merely because they hold the same name whilst ignoring the different context and character of each. Secondly, these names, Aleph and Tau, are descriptive titles only and not names in any case. They represent domains, two different domains.
Messiah the created Alpha and Omega points to (shows) his eternal Father the Alpha and Omega of creation to which Yahuah gave a beginning and an end:
Yahuah and Yah'ushua: Equal or Same?
Philippians 2:5 "Let this mind be in you, which was also in Messiah (pw Christ) Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) : 6 Who, being in the form of Elohim (pw God), thought it not robbery to be equal with Elohim (pw God): 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the torture stake (greek stauros)( pw cross). 9 Wherefore Elohim (pw God) also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) every knee should bow, of things in shamayim (pw heaven), and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Messiah (pw Christ) is Master (pw Lord), to the splendour (pw glory) of Elohim (pw God) the Father."Once again Verse 6 refers to the time when Yah'ushua was "Logos" with Elohim (pw God), a part of YHUH at that time. Yah'ushua then lowered Himself to become flesh for our salvation, so, subsequently He is no longer equal with YHUH. If He were he would not be handing over all honour (pw glory) to the Father at the very end.
Scriptures have rendered this verse as "to be equal with God" . Now, the name Michael has the Hebrew meaning :"for he who is like Elohim (pw God)?" We see that Sethur in the Old Testament was the Son of Michael. So, was this a blasphemy? A mere mortal with a name, he who is like El(ohim), how can it be? Let's say your name were Michael, perhaps it is - well, would that, in the strictest sense, be a kind of blasphemy? Perhaps if you were not behaving as Elohim that would be using that name in vain since you did not live up to it. That would be robbery, misrepresentation, abuse of power or fraud, in the Hebrew sense, when it comes to a name.
The straightforward answer then is, that this is not blasphemy or robbery to be equal with Elohim when it comes to Messiah himself since He lived up to the name of his Father. In so doing He has come as an example for us all to be Michael, like El (pw God) IN CHARACTER. What does that badly translated word “godly” or “godliness” mean? Paul uses it and it more accurately means to be YHUH-like. Is it robbery of Elohim's very throne and sovereign power, or is it his goal and will for us, to be like him in nature? It is of course the latter since Satan rejects the latter in favour of trying to gain the former. To be equal with Elohim is not to obtain his position which consists of his sovereignty, omniscience, self-existence, omnipotence, no it is to have his character.of righteousness. As you will remember Satan tempted Yah'ushua not with offering him the power to have the righteous character of Elohim (pw God), no, but offered him the position to rule over an earthly kingdom at the expense of unrighteous worship of Satan.
Apostle Paul defines the mystery of "godliness".
1 Tim 3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: which was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of malakhim (pw angels) , preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into honour (pw glory).
"godliness" refers to piety - pure humilit as manifest in Yah'ushua who was humble enough to obey the Father unto pureness (pw holiness). This is why we do not see it robbery to be like the Father in purity and be obedient to Him. This is not SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS but HIS righteousness that we follow by the power of his spirit. It was the Father who was humble and stooped down to us by giving His Son so that we may repent and have our sins washed away by his Son's offering (pw sacrifice). So Messiah stooped down to us and died for us to be in equality to His Father's baruch'd (pw blessed) nature.
The likeness is not about having the same throne of Yahuah in shamayim (pw heaven) but about the work and nature that is similar or equal. Thus we too are encouraged to be Michael, like Yahuah in moral purity by obedience to Yah'uah.
Do I speak blasphemy? No! Read again
Phillipians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Messiah (pw Christ) Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) : 6 Who, being in the form of Elohim (pw God), thought it not robbery to be equal with Elohim (pw God): 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the stake (pw cross).
This nature has been the nature of Yah'uah since he, in reality, stooped down to us by sending his Son as saviour when we did not deserve it, while we were sinners at the time
Read that again and read it until you get the truth in your heart and mind. Paul is saying Yah'ushua did not think it robbery to be like Yahuah, (pw god-like, godly, Michael), and HE IS TELLING YOU TO BE LIKE-MINDED, Have this same attitude in your mind. He is not telling you to be a trinitarian or that Yah'ushua is a trinitarian or for you to form a trinity by being like-minded, ie. equal to Elohim (pw God) in substance and sovereignty - that is insane. He wants us to be equal in character of righteousness.
From Philllipians 2:5 we can also clear up the equality of "form" versus "likeness". Yah'ushua is "in the form of Elohim" verse 6. "form" here is:
Greek: 3444 morphe mor-fay' perhaps from the base of 3313 (through the idea of adjustment of parts); shape; figuratively, nature:--form. see GREEK for 3313
It is not equal substance or shape as trinitarian heretics try to imply. That contradicts the statement by Yahuah himself that he is not a man or the son of man but is spirit. If "form" here meant shape or substance we would have difficulty understanding then how he has the "form" shape or substance of a servant:
verse 7 "and took upon him the form (3444) of a servant"Does a servant have a particular shape or substance that we should be aware of? Should they be shaped like a broom and be made of a woody substance or something stupid like that? No, of course not, it refers to NATURE - CHARACTER - ATTITUDE and so does the "form of Elohim" refer to equal or same nature - Yah-like!
IsosLet us examine this word "equal" more closely to confirm its correct meaning.
2470 isos ee'-sos probably from 1492 (through the idea of seeming); similar (in amount and kind):--+ agree, as much, equal, like. see GREEK for 1492
In this context the word's meaning is "agree" since the context is let this mind be in you. Paul is saying your mind should agree with Yahuah, be equal with him, and then react, become obedient to him as Messiah agreed with him and became obedient even to death. It would also fit in with "like" since one can be like-minded and Yahuah-like in nature. Also note the word equal must hold "through the idea of seeming" it appears as though Yah'ushua is equal by having the character of Yahuah but he is not literally equal just as an earthly son and father seem to appear alike by character but are not literally the same.
This word "isos" is seen only one other place in the New Testament. Here the Jews used it in John 5:18. However there they made the false conclusion and accusation that He was making himself "equal" with or to Elohim (pw God) or "as much" Elohim (pw God). "As much God" sounds almost identical as the phrase "indeed the very God", invented by the trinity liars. Here Yah'ushua responded to their allegation as he knew they accused him of being Elohim the source of power and authority which he is not. He simply has been given authority and power. He promptly corrects them.
20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.
22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
So the false religious system then and now propogates the same lie that Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) claims to be Elohim (pw God) when he clearly does not. One was a false accusation and the other now has become a false doctrine.
It is interesting how similar this Greek word "isos" sounds to Esus, the pagan Gallic god pictured on the left. In fact, in Latin "isos" would be spelt "esus". One would also see the striking closeness of Iesus( for Jesus) in Welsh and Greek Iesous (for Jesus). This would finally lead to further paganising the Messiah's name to Jesus. Some have debunked this, saying that Esus is unconnected, being an Indo-European word while Jesus is a semtic word. This is of course not true since Jesus is not semtic at all but a transliteraion, not just one transliteration but several through Greek and Latin etc, from the true semitic word, Yah'ushua. This was only recently done so it was easy to manipulate it towards the same sound of a pre-existing pagan god. Esus can be spelt Hesus and Jesus and in Hispanic is still pronounced Hey zeus in today whilst Esus has a connection to Zeus as well. A "J" merely inserted for no reason gives J-esus. Pagans would feel at home with a pagan god sounding similar, and perhaps there is a connection with the further similar sounding (isos) to make the incorrect connection to the meaning of "equal", equal to the Almighty Elohim himself, the very same false accusation against the Son Yah'ushua by the Pharisees. This would be the perfect step towards the preparation and acceptance of a trinity heresy. Thus pagan transliteration made it easy to manipulate the name away from his only true and real name, Yah'ushua, containing Yah (uah), and thus away from Yahuah, away from Yahuah-likeness and towards a new, and equal trinity "god" devoid of To'rah.
High standards = Robbery?
6 Who, being in the nature, character of Elohim (pw God), thought it not robbery to be in agreement with Elohim (pw God)
Why would it even be considered robbery by some if one is of a nature and character that agrees with Elohim? Simply because Yah-likeness is so foreign to a corrupted, To'rah-less world, impotent of Yah's spirit, who teaches "we cannot keep the law" even after the atonement and spirit of Yahuah is upon us! It therefore would appear as if the one who aimed towards the standards of Yahuah's nature would be seen as being so foreign, as if one were trying to be Elohim (pw God) himself, when, in fact, Elohim wants us to all be like him in character- that is why he gave us To'rah. This was the very false accusation levelled against Messiah for being an obedient Son of Elohim in the midst of a corrupt and To'rah-less Jerusalem.
*5046 teleios tel'-i-os from 5056; complete (in various applications of labor, growth, mental and moral character, etc.); neuter (as noun, with 3588) completeness:--of full age, man, perfect. see GREEK for 5056 see GREEK for 3588
The false religion pretends to have an appearance of religion but denies the power of the one true religion which is of Yah'uah. This pure religion gives us the power to become the Sons of Elohim (pw God) to be equal in agreement with his character, To'rah.
James 1:27 Pure religion and undefiled before Elohim (pw God) even (wrong translation -and) the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
Trinity Stumbling Block - Chasing Thrones
It is Satan who wants to be "esos" in the context of equal, as much Elohim (pw God) only in the sense of having his throne and sovereignty itself and even be above Elohim. That is robbery. But Yah'ushua, being in the form of Elohim before being begotten ( ie. spirit ), did not ever do that. Instead, He was equal in humility and nature to Elohim so that the Father's throne could be exalted through the Son's To'rah obedience. The trinity gospel inverts the truth and places Yah'ushua as one who wants to merely ascend to the throne and be equal, if not higher than the Almighty these days with the forsaking of To'rah. (The false Catholic Mary evidently represents that Satanic spirit.) It is not about the throne of Yah'ushua but the work and nature that is equal, and the same mind should be in us. Even the right-hand position on the throne next to the Father, He attributes it by giving splendour to Yahuah.
Let us look at a good example of chasing thrones.
Mat 20:20 ¶Then came to him the mother of Zebedee’s children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him. 21 And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy rule and reign (pw kingdom). 22 But Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) answered and said, Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be immersed (pw baptized) with the immersion (pw baptism) that I am immersed (pw baptized) with? They say unto him, We are able. 23 And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the immersion (pw baptism) that I am immersed (pw baptized) with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father. 24 And when the ten heard it, they were moved with indignation against the two brethren. 25 But Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) called them unto him, and said, Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. 26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; 27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: 28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
The two brothers were rebuked - they were thinking like trinitarians, they wanted to sit on either side of Yah'ushua as though he were Elohim (pw God) Almighty, almost as if they could complete a triad on a throne with him as demigods, after all, trinities were already popular amongst Hellinistic Jews. Yah'ushua clearly rebuked them for thinking about thrones instead of servanthood, they were beginning to sound like the King of Tyre, Satanic. LORDING over is the heathen way - throne obsessed. This is the Papal way, trying to sieze power from the Father and making void his To'rah with "church canons". The daughter Protestant churches (circe-circus) have also mostly followed suite. The Baptist church, for example, has over 2000 created laws, but like the Catholics it abolishes the seventh day sabbath and denies keeping To'rah in general, which has only, more or less, 600 laws many not even applicable due to Yah'ushua's atonement and the lack of a House of Yahuah (pw temple). Since we, who are believers under Messiah, have been put to death in the flesh on the stake and live in the spirit we too can aim to be YHUH-like as servants to his To'rah.
it any wonder then that the pagan translators siezed upon another pagan
idea by having the sons of Zebedee being surnamed "Sons of Thunder" as
though as followers of
the now paganised (J)Zeus, perhaps making them then
sons of the god Zeus, the
god of thunder, .
Would this not be a perfect image of a trinity
with (J)Zeus seated in the middle upon a
throne, rather than
the true Yah'ushua on the right hand of Yahuah his Father? The truth
named the brothers "Boanerges" which means sons of
commotion. You will see that whilst Strong's states it as
exactly that, the translators still insist on translating it as "sons
Mark 3:17 And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James; and he surnamed them Boanerges (strongs 993: sons of commotion), which is, The sons of thunder.
Yah'ushua crushes any idea of gods on thrones by emphasising men as servants, using himself as the very example. Yah'ushua does not have a god complex, contrary to popular pagan trinitarians who have attempted to portray Him as such. In the same way the Sons of Zebedee were slipping towards a type of trinitarian god complex before being rebuked by Yah'ushua.They were forgetting and usurping the Father, just as pagan Christianos does with its To'rahless Jesus/(J)Zeus. Yah'ushua emphatically leaves it to the Father to decide who if any will sit on either side of Him in ruling and reigning. Yah'ushua is not Elohim the Father and has no say in such a matter, He is the servant Son of Yahuah.
The "I AM" or the "I am"?Trinitarians love to turn mere words into pronouns and then make those pronouns to be names to prove that the pagan name "Jesus" , or even the real Messiah Yah'ushua, somehow bears the name and position of the Sovereign Elohim, and thus they claim he is Elohim. Their favourite is:
in this case should be: "I exist" or "I was". We
cannot make it a pronoun by adding capitals and making it into a name.
Strongs Concordance: am=1510 eimi i-mee' I exist (used only when emphatic):--am, have been, ie. it is I, was.
This in no way contradicts what scripture already declares that Yah'ushua (the Word) WAS with Elohim (pw God) before He was begotten in the flesh and NOW He is the Son of Elohim (pw God), still not Elohim (pw God) himself. It merely shows his precedence of existence in shamayim (pw heaven) prior to Abraham. So what? The whole host of malakhim (pw angels) existed before Abraham too. It proves that Yah'ushua's fleshly existence was preceded by a spiritual one, unlike any other man on earth ever was or will be. He was Yahuah's first begotten Son. Yah'ushua had existed in the spirit before the worlds.
As we note, the son is still talking and praying to the Father as the Son, and as we keep showing, will always be subject to the Father Elohim (Almighty), He is never Elohim himself.
1 Cor 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that Elohim (the Almighty) may be all in all.
Please note "I exist" in John 8 above and "It is I" in:
Mat 14:27"But straightway Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid."
are BOTH just two of the same words in each case ego(I) and eimi (I exist).
Matthew 8:8 The centurion
answered and said, Master (pw Lord),
not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof: but speak the word
only, and my servant shall be healed.
the exact same use ego (I) and eimi (I exist) are used and
obviously the centurion is not "I AM" either.
Now, lets be logical and obedient to the revelation by the pure Ruach (pure Breath of Yahuah - not the Holi Babylon Hindu Spirit) as recorded in
Matthew 14:33 "Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of Elohim (pw God)."
this is what the Apostles
realised of Messiah - He is the Son of Elohim (pw God). This "Son of
Elohim (pw God)" principle
is clearly given by the pure Ruach (pw Holy Spirit) and anything
contrary is made up by
flesh and blood (doctrines of men).
Mat 16:15 "He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? 16 And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Messiah (pw Christ), the Son of the living Elohim (pw God). 17 And Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) answered and said unto him, baruch'd (pw blessed) art thou, Simon Bar–jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in shamayim (pw heaven)."
Here again Messiah says, but whom say ye that "I am". Peter does not say, yes, you are I AM, does he? No, because it is preposterous - he says, in fact, Thou art the Messiah (pw Christ), the Son of the living Elohim (pw God). If "I am" was ever to be a pronoun "I AM" here would have been the best time to state it.It is interesting to note the verse we quoted at the beginning of this article:
John 8:28 Then said Yah'ushua unto them, When ye have lifted up (exalted) the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am (he*), and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things.
* KJV adds "he" here. So it should read "then shall you know that I exist (ego eimi) and do nothing of myself." Quite conveniently one would think if the "he" were NOT inserted then ego eimi should be again considered as one of those ridiculous pronouns where Yah'ushua is speaking in code and saying "then shall you know that I AM". But it would not work and the lie would be exposed since the Son says right after that that he cannot do anything but only what is taught to him by his Father (who is the I AM that I AM). Instead, He, in fact, attributes his very existence to the I AM THAT I AM (self existent one) - his Father.
These" I AM" deceivers do not even try to insert such a thing here when it is blatantly opposed in the very same sentence by the Father's contrasting presence and superiority. The trick of their "I AMs" are only effective in that context where the Father's supremacy is absent in the text reference and the Father's supremacy fades from the forgetful minds of the foolish. The vigilant, however, remember the Son's many verses which shoot down false "I AM" attributions to him..
Let US Make Man In OUR Image - The creator needed help?
Gen 1:26 "And Elohim (pw God) said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness..."The Hebrew for the Almighty here (pw God) is Elohim which is plural for Eloah (singular). Yahuah Elohim is in plural not because He is a three headed G-o-d but because Hebrew uses the plural when it wishes to express intensity and fullness. An example of this is seen for the word "wisdom" spelt, chokmah, singular (eg. Ex 35:31), and wisdom plural spelt, chokmowth, (eg. Ps 49:3). Obviously wisdom is wisdom and the plural sense conveys intensity and fullness when in the plural. Thus, for Elohim, plural of Eloha, the Almighty is the Mightiest of the Mighties, ie. he is ALL mighty. It does not in this case mean plurality by number but plurality by power and position. This is further confirmed by scripture that the Master Elohim (plural) remains ONE, ie. the great ALL Mighty ONE.
Deut 6:4 "Hear, O Israel: Yahuah (YHUH the self-existent one) (pw LORD) our Elohim (plural) (pw God) is one Yahuah (YHUH the self-existent one) (pw LORD): "
It is clear that there is only ONE self-existent ONE YHUH from the beginning. It is made clear early on in Genesis that YHUH is the Most high el / Most high Almighty / Supreme Almighty / elyown el. That he is the possessor of shamayim (pw heaven) and earth itself.
Gen 14:19 ...baruch'd (pw blessed) be Abram of the most high el (elyown el), possessor of shamayim (pw heaven) and earth:When it says
People are quick to think that Yahuah is speaking to another part of himself or to his Son and some Holi ghost god at this stage, as if he needed help with His creation and was not the All Powerful Elohim. This thinking is very prominent again from the pagan Vatican (Minister of death) where Elohim is blasphemed and not seen as Supreme and all powerful and needed help with his creation, thus a few extra gods should be thrown in, ah, yes, a trinity should do the trick and a little evolution as well, or so they think as they try to undermine Yahuah's sovereingty.
If that were so it would state who he is speaking to but it does not. The word "us" is simply not there, it is merely inserted. The word "said" has great latitude in meaning, not necessarily meaning a dialogue with one or more entities. It can again refer to thought, desire, command, etc, it is the Hebrew word, amar:
559 'amar aw-mar' a primitive root; to say (used with great latitude):--answer, appoint, avouch, bid, boast self, call, certify, challenge, charge, + (at the, give) command(-ment), commune, consider, declare, demand, X desire, determine, X expressly, X indeed, X intend, name, X plainly, promise, publish, report, require, say, speak (against, of), X still, X suppose, talk, tell, term, X that is, X think, use (speech), utter, X verily, X yet.
Isaiah 45:5 "I am YHUH (pw LORD), and there is none else, there is no Elohim (PLURAL) (pw God) beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am YHUH (pw LORD), and there is none else. 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I YHUH (pw LORD) do all these things".
Yahuah is saying that He alone is Elohim (ie. emphatic plural of Eloah - ALL Mighty One) and that there is no other Elohim (ie. emphatic plural Eloah Mighty One). There may indeed be a mighty one (eloha), a god (created by man), singular upon the earth, and simply by their numbers they become plural. However, what Yahuah is saying is that their plurality by numbers can never be mightier than the emphatic plural Elohim since he remains ONE and yet greater than any number of mighty ones.
Elohim's (pw God's) Own Blood? Holy Spirit's own Blood?? Or Yah'ushua's Blood???Remembering that Elohim is not a man it follows that he does not bleed, thus, when some use the following verse to prove 'Jesus is God' they are digging themselves into a deeper hole by reducing Elohim to a mortal man, as did the pagan translators with their trinity bias here:
129 haima hah'-ee-mah of uncertain derivation; blood, literally (of men or animals), figuratively (the juice of grapes) or specially (the atoning blood of Messiah (pw Christ)); by implication, bloodshed, also kindred:--blood.
Yah'ushua is Yahuah's own Son, thus his own kindred by spirit but born of a woman in the flesh. Thus it should read:
For unto us a child is born...the mighty God?
A verse that 's widely used as evidence that Yah'ushua is Elohim (pw God) Himself is the following as it appears in KJV:
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty Elohim (pw God), The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Incorrect use of this verse has done much damage in keeping Judaisers in Judaism causing them to reject any idea of a Messiah being prophesied here because the perverse Christian version of this Messiah usurps Elohim, making himself Elohim. That is not the case!!
The question is, who is the "He" being referred to here? It is clear that the Father always receives splendour (pw glory) through the action of the Son, especially at the very end.
1 Cor 15:26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he (Father Elohim (pw God)) hath put all things under his (Son's) feet. But when he saith all things are put under him (Son), it is manifest that he (Father Elohim (pw God)) is excepted, which did put all things under him (Son). 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him (Son), then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him (the Father) that put all things under him, that Elohim (pw God) may be all in all.
Satan (Santa) the father of lies, the father of pagan gods also known as
Nick, the devil.
Now, as in the above verse it is important, firstly, to make a distinction between the "He" and that it is the Father and Son who are differentiated between, not melded into one as those who quote Isaiah 9:6 would like to make you believe. So, from 1 Cor 15:26 the ultimate conclusion is that, the government upon the shoulders of the Son is handed back to the Father so that the Father may receive pre-eminence (be all in all) and be distinctly known as the Father. In other words, the reason for the Son coming and being given the government upon His shoulders was not to create a confusion of Son = God, but on the contrary, that Son = Son and Elohim = Elohim all in all. Now, take note, the word excepted! in Verse 27. It is shown that Elohim (pw God) is excepted when putting everything under the Son.
Full Definition of except : transitive verb : to take or leave out from a number or a whole : exclude
it says, all
things are put under the Son, it is clear that that EXCLUDES
the Father who still reigns supreme. So it also follows
that Yah'ushua is himself still subject TO the Father. In
other words the Son of Elohim rules to show how much He is not Elohim
by the very fact that He returns his rule to the Father when he has
accomplished his Father's
Now, if we apply Isaiah 9:6 and ask, when was Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) called any of these names whilst on earth? I believe we would find it difficult to answer. Yah'ushua is certainly referred to as a Prince, which simply means, ruler or chief, etc. and he has been made ruler over all things by the Father as we have just stated. However, Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) is not referred to as the Prince of Peace. In fact, he clearly said he did not come to earth to bring peace here.
Mat 10:34 Think not that I am come to send shalom (pw peace) on earth: I came not to send shalom (pw peace), but a sword.
The Son, I believe, is clearly telling us not to confuse the title, Prince of Peace, in Isaiah directly with himself. It would not be the first time prophecy has been confused, as with the prophecy of Jeremiah when the Jews expected Messiah to ride upon a horse but he came upon an ass.(two different propehicies). So, can we ascribe this title to him here? No. Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) has been called the Prince of the kings of the earth (Rev 1:5), Prince of life (Acts 3:15) and Prince and Saviour (Acts 5:31), but never Prince or Ruler of Peace! What about Wonderful Counsellor? Nowhere to be seen when referring to "Jesus", but we do hear Paul referring to Yahuah (pw God the Father) as the counsellor.
Rom 11:34 For who hath known the mind of the Master (pw Lord)? or who hath been his counsellor?
Proof that it is Master Elohim and not Master Yah'ushua here, since Paul knows his scriptures and quotes them from the Tanakh (pw Old Testament).
Isaiah 40:13 Who hath directed the Spirit of YHUH (pw LORD) or being his counsellor hath taught him?
The pagan corrupted rendering of LORD in capitals always refers to the proper name YHUH meaning Yahuah, I am that I am, the self existent one. This can be distinguished from "Lord" lower case which simply refers to a title - Master. Of course the renewed everlasting covenant (pw New Testament) does not distinguish, making it appear as the Master Yah'ushua and the Master Yahuah are one and the same, which they are not! The translators did their best in hiding YHUH the Father's name, trying to eradicate it. So here Isaiah is clearly referring to Elohim (pw God) the Father who taught (counselled, advised) the Son. Marcion would have some thinking that the Son counselled the Father, telling him his To'rah is evil and to be done away with - Yah forbid!
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself (*not of my own authority or counsel): but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
*my own words
Back to Isaiah as it appears in KJV:
Isaiah 9:6 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty Elohim (pw God), The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Now we shall see the best effort yet by the devious translators and how they have twisted this verse even to try to deceive the Hebrews into thinking that "Jesus is God", so much so that they discount these Messianic verses altogether as referring to the Messiah because of this idolatrous idea, and rightly so. However, the Jews take advantage of such a glaring opportunity to simply deny the Son and try to make Son refer to Israel, which is ridiculous, and it will cost their souls as they continue to prefer their own idolatry of Judaism - following rabbis and men's flawed teachingsl and deny the Son.
The first part is fine and straight foward
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given...
referring to the son being born and given to us, which is the Son of Yahuah, who was certainly given to us as an offering or atonement (pw sacrifice).
The second part refers to the authority placed by the Father upon his son's shoulders, a ruler (Prince) over all things EXCEPT Yahuah himself, as described above in 1 Cor 15:26.
At first we see
...and the government shall be upon his shoulder...
But then we come to the more deceptive third part
... and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty Elohim (pw God), The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.This horrendous translation makes it appear as if this "Jesus" would in the future be called, amongst other things, the everlasting Father and mighty Elohim. This blasphemy contradicts the sovereignty of Elohim and everything we have just proven using the scriptures themselves, and when scripture appears to contradict itself it is usually one of several things: wrong understanding, wrong context, wrong translation, etc. In this case it is clearly wrong translation because of a catholic trinity bias and Marcion spirit. Isaiah was prophesying in the name of Yahuah, not in the name of the Catholic "church" who invented pagan "Jesus is God" doctrine much later. Now I shall prove to you what it should say.
Taking all the Hebrew words in the phrase using Strong's and comparing them to the KJV (top row):
shem shame a primitive word (perhaps rather from 7760
through the idea of definite and conspicuous position; compare 8064);
an appellation, as a mark or memorial of individuality; by implication
honor, authority, character:--+ base, (in-)fame(-ous), named(-d),
renown, report. see HEBREW for 07760 see HEBREW for 08064
A primitive root (compare H1933); to exist, that is, be or become, come to pass (always emphatic, and not a mere copula or auxiliary): - beacon, X altogether, be (-come, accomplished, committed, like), break, cause, come (to pass), continue, do, faint, fall, + follow, happen, X have, last, pertain, quit (one-) self, require, X use.
qara' kaw-raw' a primitive root (rather identical with 7122 through the
idea of accosting a person met); to call out to (i.e. properly, address by name,
but used in a wide variety of applications):--bewray (self), that are bidden, call
(for, forth, self, upon), cry (unto), (be) famous, guest, invite, mention, (give)
name, preach, (make) proclaim(- ation), pronounce, publish, read, renowned,
say. see HEBREW for 07122
Firstly it becomes clear that "and his" is not really there. Secondly translating "qara" as "called" throws all the Father's titles onto the inserted"his", ie. the Son, which is a lie. "qara" is used a number of times to denote proclaiming, publishing, preaching the name of Yahuah. The very fact that the Son is born of the Father, it follows that the son receives the authority that comes with the office of honour given by the Father and the Father receives the honour in return since the Son serves the Father with honour and proclaims his names Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty Elohim (pw God), The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace by preaching his Word.
Examples of "qara":
Here we see the same word used for both "called" and "proclaimed" in the same verse.
Ex 34:5 And YHUH / Yahuah (pw LORD) descended in the cloud, and stood with him there, and proclaimed (qara) the name of Yahuah.
Now thirdly in the table above we see that the "shall be" is central to the confusion. Here it would either imply that Yah'uah Elohim will be in the future called Wonderful Counsellor, The mighty Elohim (pw God), The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. or if you are trinitarian, that this "Jesus" in the future will be called these things including Mighty God since he is of course this G-o-d in the eyes of the pagan trinitarian. But what if the correct translation were used having "shall be" replaced with the alternate "that is". Obviously these names of the eternal Father have been eternally existent and they are not someting future, they have existed always. He has always been the Mighty Elohim (pw God) so there is no "shall be" it is simply ridiculous and like stating the obvious. Instead the correct translation "that is" refers to the names that are in existence already, the names of Yah'uah eternal.
Thus Isaiah 9:6 is more likely stating the following:
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government (of Yah'uah) is* upon his (the son's) shoulder: and the name that is proclaimed and preached is Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty Elohim, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
*I have replaced the first "shall be", which appears in the KJV but not in Hebrew, with "is". When Isaiah wrote this the Son had already been born in shamayim (pw heaven) and was placed over creation and so the government was already upon his shoulders, he simply had to be born in the flesh in the future but with the government and name and or authority of Yahuah already upon his shoulders. You will notice how the tense now all makes sense.The descriptive name has the title, "Everlasting Father". "Everlasting Father" cannot be given to the Son. So the Father' s name is clearly being referred to here, not the Son. Specifically, He is an "Everlasting Father" in that his Son has been begotten and been given eternal life. If his Son had died the name "Everlasting Father" could not be true since an Eternal Father has an Eternal Son, and all the more since that Son has inherited us who believe on Him as sons who shall also be eternal. It is therefore The Eternal Father who is Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty Elohim, and that is only fully realised when his Eternal Son has accomplished his appointed office. Note the title, Mighty Elohim = The Mighty Mighty one = The ALL MIGHTY ONE not little "gods" as some try to argue.
The Son receives Counsel from the Father, hence He himself said, why do you call me good Rabbi (teacher / master), there is only ONE good teacher, counsellor, that is the Father - he stated that categorically!!
Luke 18:18 And a certain ruler asked him, saying, Good Master (didaskolas - teacher), what shall I do to inherit eternal life? 19 And Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) said unto him, Why callest thou me good? none is good, save one, that is, Elohim (pw God). 20 Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery...
The emphasis is not on good but on teacher. Obviously Messiah is good, he is the Good Shepherd, but the teaching is not his own new good teaching, the source is:
FROM HIS FATHER, THE ONE AND ONLY GOOD SOURCE OF TEACHING.
So anyone who claims that there is a Jesus who
brings his own new good news teaching called a New Testament
or his own new good news Gospel / Godspell (from German Gott spell)
is a liar and blasphemer of the Father's everlasting teaching
which is the commandments of Yahuah.
His Son refers to the good teaching of his Father's To'rah
"Thou knowest the commandments, Do not commit adultery...etc"
He does not refer to a lawless Protestant,
Catholic, Charismatic, Pentecostal, Trinity doctrine etc
a new replacement religion called Christianos / Christianity? NO!
he refers to his Father's To'rah
Here we see how Yahuah puts his name upon all the children of Elohim by the priestly baruch (pw blessing). That name includes the name "THAT IS" (not "shall be") Wonderful Counsellor, The mighty Elohim (pw God), The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. This in no way makes the children of Israel Elohim himself, it simply means they bear his authority over them and thus should proclaim His name in deed and word and be baruch'd. They are children or citizens of his government. Yah'ushua was given the headship over this government and thus Yahuah placed his name (authority) Wonderful Counsellor, The Mighty Elohim (pw God), The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace upon Yah'ushua's shoulders as well.
Now, what does Isaiah say further along, referring to the government itself?
Isaiah 9:7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever.
Now, as we have seen, the government ended for David but was revived through the line of David in Yah'ushua ( the root and offspring of David). But this government ends again as Yah'ushua hands it over to Elohim (pw God) (1 Cor 15:26). So who is the "his" in "his government" obviously the eternal Elohim, the Father, whose rule does NOT end. The government obviously has increased and is increasing for the Father, since we, his believing sons, who Yah'ushua has inherited, are ruled over with justice and shalom (pw peace) in the everlasting kingdom, for He, the Almighty, is the King of the saints and they serve Him.
Revelation 15:3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of Elohim (pw God), AND the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Master (pw Lord) Elohim (pw God) Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
We see that Elohim AND the Lamb each have thrones in that kingdom, as will the 12 disciples as well.
Luke 22:30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
But there is a hierarchy, not a shared sovereign authority. The mere fact that the 12 disciples will be sitting on thrones does not make them demigods or idols, neither is Yah'ushua made so, since Yahuah is Elohim (pw God) Almighty on His throne. The point is, who is the King at the end of the day, but the Almighty? Nobody sits on HIS throne, period! There is none besides Him! While Messiah may sit beside him that does not replace the Father who still sits on the Almighty throne, there is none besides ( ie. that replaces that very position).
Rev 2:23And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of Elohim AND of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him*:
(*Him - being Elohim (pw God), not Jesus, nor both, otherwise it would state "them" plural in line with "and")
Revelation 22:1 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of Elohim (pw God) AND of the Lamb.
They simply are not, have not and will not be ONE-and-the-SAME!! They are one in agreement but NOT the same, as we who are believers are one in agreement with the Son but not the same.
John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: John 14:23.....If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
John 14:20 At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.
There simply is nothing specific to a trinity idea when it comes to oneness and being in the Son who is in the Father and the Son who is in us if we keep his commandments. Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) is not Elohim (pw God) Almighty. "In us" is by the spirit - mind, thoughts and moral To'rah obedient character, not substance or shape. Now lets back up a bit in Isaiah 9 again, verse 6
"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given."
So it is immediately clear that Messiah is born of the flesh, but more importantly, when it says, a son is given, the Hebrew for son, "ben" directly translated means, a builder of the family name. So what Isaiah is saying is that, son, refers to the Builder of the Name, but not that he is that person - he carries what it stands for. He upholds the family name of the Father - YAHUAH. The government is placed upon his son's shoulders. In other words, the Messiah came to build the name of Yahuah so that ultimately we will live to recognise, witness and enjoy the Almighty's full titles as Prince of Peace, Wonderful (,) Counsellor, Mighty God (Yahuah) and Everlasting Father. Yahuah's name will be magnified as prophesied since there will be no more war or tears.It is clear that Isaiah was a struggle too for others, including the eunuch in understanding who was being spoken of in the verses. Some guidance was requested.
In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth...of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
...Philip...at the same scripture...preached unto him Yah'ushua (pw Jesus). And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be immersed (pw baptized)? And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Messiah (pw Christ) is the Son of Elohim (pw God).
This was a struggle even with reference to a single "he" and so Isaiah 9:6 with two "he's" being referred to is understandably a struggle for some without the additional mistranslations thrown in by the catholics. So what we see is remarkable. The eunuch immediately wants to be immersed and the requirement is that he believes Messiah to be the Son of Elohim which he does. If Philip had really been a trinitarian do you not think he would have then not moved to Isaiah 9:6 and quoted it as a catholic resulting in the eunuch rather saying I believe the Messiah is the Mighty God, Wonderful Counsellor, Everlasting Father??? Well, he does not, and why does he not do that? Did Ireaneus not promote the twisted trinitarian 'baptism formula" which lead to a trinity teaching. Was pure immersion in water not the root for a corruption towards a trinity and "Jesus is God" fable? So why is it absent here in Acts??? Simply because the scriptures are not a fable but catholicism is. Messiah is the Son of Elohim and that is what Isaiah preached, that is what Philip preached, that is what Messiah himself preached and that is what the eunuch then understood and believed, allowing him to be immersed. He was not turned away by the catholic clergy for denying the trinity "Jesus is God" heresy. Philip surely taught Isaiah 9:6 correctly explaining the Son born and given to us by Yahuah, the Messiah, Son of Elohim, not Son = Elohim.
In this catholic cross infested scene depicting the council of Nicae we see the man in blue without a pagan Helios halo, most likely Arius. He is rejected by Rome for denying the "Jesus is God" lie. I expect the eunuch in Acts would have found himself in the same situation had he been around in AD 325. We will find ourselves in the same situation today around the pagan church system. We will be rejected for denying a commandment that was never made by Yahuah to believe that "Jesus is God". And yet we will be further rejected by them for accepting the To'rah commands that he realy DOES command eg sabbath keeping etc.They are true Pharisees.
EVEN THE SON HAS A FATHER - HE CANNOT BE THE EVERLASTING FATHER OF Is 9:6 HIMSELF - PERIOD!:
Romans 15:6 That ye may with one mind and one mouth give honour to (pw glorify) Elohim (pw God), even the Father of our Master Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Messiah (pw Christ).
John 17: 1 These words spake Yah'ushua (pw Jesus), and lifted up his eyes to shamayim (pw heaven), and said, Father, the hour is come; honour (pw glorify) thy Son, that thy Son also may honour (pw glorify) thee: 2 As thou hast given him power over all flesh, that he should give eternal life to as many as thou hast given him. 3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true Elohim (pw God), AND Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Messiah (pw Christ), whom thou hast sent. 4 I have honoured (pw glorified) thee on the earth : I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do. 5 And now, O Father, honour ( pw glorify) thou me with thine own self with the honour (pw glory) which I had with thee before the world was. 6 I have manifested THY NAME unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word. 7 Now they have known that all things whatsoever thou hast given me are of thee. 8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me (*since you are the Wonderful Counsellor); and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
In John 10:30 Yah'ushua said
When reading this verse alone, and out of context, it would appear that Yah'ushua is making a statement that He is Elohim (pw God) but the truth is found in John 17:20-21 where Yah'ushua prays for all His followers, even those who have not yet been born.
"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word; that they all may be one; as thou Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us; that the world may believe that thou hast sent me."
Yah'ushua prays that all His followers will be one
with Him, just as He and His Father are one, that is, He wants everyone
to be in unison, one mind with the All Mighty One, Elohim
John 17:11 "And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Set apart (pw Holy) Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are."If oneness were to mean equal substance then we all would be Elohim, which we are not. We are only one in unity to Yahuah through obedience to his will (To'rah). It is in oneness of state (unity), not substance, by the state that the spirit set our minds to obey through Yahuah's spirit of wisdom.
Scripture teaches clearly that Elohim (pw God) is "one", He stands alone, and tolerates no equals or rivals.
6:44 "Hear, O Israel: The YHUH
our Elohim (pw God) is one YHUH (pw LORD): 5 And thou shalt
love YHUH (pw LORD) thy Elohim (pw God) with all thine
heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might."
Isaiah 43:1s "Ye are my witnesses, saith YHUH (pw LORD), and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no Elohim (pw God) formed, neither shall there be after me."
Isaiah 45:5 "I am YHUH (pw LORD), and there is none else, there is no Elohim (pw God) beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am YHUH (pw LORD), and there is none else. 7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I YHUH (pw LORD) do all these things".
John 14:28 28 "Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. "
1 Timothy 2: 4 "Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one Elohim (pw God), and one mediator between Elohim (pw God) and men, the man Messiah (pw Christ) Yah'ushua (pw Jesus);"
an interesting aside - it is a "conflict of interest" in today's
earthly law if the Advocate is
the same person as the Judge. Surely the same should apply in the
justice of shamayim (pw heaven) where Messiah Yah'ushua is the
appointed advocate / mediator (1 John 2:1) and YHUH is the
judge (Heb 12:23 and 1 Peter 1:17)?
Yah'ushua is the perfect image of His Father in shamayim (pw heaven), and it is obvious that the Trinity is a man-made doctrine by the pagan institiution called "Church" at the Council of Nicaea in AD 325. It has no place nor foundation in the scriptures, nor in the simple Gospel taught by Yah'ushua and the Apostles. The doctrine of the Trinity did not form part of the teachings of Yah'ushua or the Apostles, as recorded in the REC. As we have seen, it is a product of many factors prevalent in Egypt between the third and fourth centuries in the fledgling "Christian Church". The moment of truth : Whom should we believe, Elohim (pw God) or man?Reminders that Yah'ushua is subordinate to His Father :
Matt 19:16 "And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life? 17 And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, Elohim (pw God): but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments."
Luke 1:32 "He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord Elohim (pw God) shall give unto him the throne of his father David:"
John 5:18 "Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that Elohim (pw God) was his Father, making himself equal with Elohim (pw God). 19 Then answered Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
John 5: 30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me."
John 8:28 "Then said Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am he, and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things."
Acts 2:22 "Ye men of Israel, hear these words; Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) of Nazareth, a man approved of Elohim (pw God) among you by miracles and wonders and signs, which Elohim (pw God) did by him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know."
Acts 10:38 "How Elohim (pw God) anointed Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for Elohim (pw God) was with him."
1 Cor 11:3 "But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Messiah (pw Christ); and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Messiah (pw Christ) is Elohim (pw God)."
1 Cor 15:24 "Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to Elohim (pw God), even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. 25 For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that Elohim (pw God) may be all in all."
Phil 2:9 "Wherefore Elohim (pw God) also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) every knee should bow, of things in shamayim (pw heaven), and things in earth, and things under the earth;"
John 3: 16 ¶ "For Elohim (pw God) so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
John 20:17 "Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my Elohim (pw God), and your Elohim (pw God)."
Heb 5:4 And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of Elohim (pw God), as was Aaron. 5 So also Messiah (pw Christ) glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.
Please refer to this article which says
it all just as well :
Any other doctrine other than that taught by Yah'ushua is a Marcion spirit which hates YHUH of the Everlasting Covenant (pw Old Testament) as though He and His law are evil - they wish to set up a new God, a false Jesus called "God the Son" to overthrow Elohim (pw God) the Father and his Law. But His Son came not to abolish the Law but to fulfill it!
John 5:1 "Whosoever believeth that Yah'ushua is the Messiah (pw Christ) is born of God [YHUH]: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God [YHUH], when we love God [YHUH], and keep his commandments."
Note : If we love Elohim (pw
God) the Father
because He begot the Son then we are begotten sons through
(pw Christ) and we love the true Messiah (pw Christ). If we make him
(as though not coming in the flesh) then we create an anti-Messiah (pw
also hate Elohim (pw God) the Father's commandments.
1 John 4:3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Yah'ushua Messiah (pw Christ) is come in the flesh is not of Elohim (pw God): and this is that spirit of an opponent of Messiah (pw antichrist), whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
forget whatever doctrine you
heard from a man. Hear our Master Yah'ushua from his
own lips - this is the p'shat -
Romans 2:29 "But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of Elohim (pw God).")
A Elohim (pw God) -fearing Jew will
never accept a Messiah who has come to abolish moral law. If
Messiah said YHUH
is "greater than I", but you insist Messiah is greatest, then you make
an idol and a liar. That which is loved more than Abba Father
is an idol.

BELOW ARE OUR REPSONSES TO FURTHER QUESTIONS
POSTED BY READERS ON OUR SISTER
BLOG SITE WHERE THIS ARTICLE WAS ORIGINALLY POSTED
Why was Jesus (Yah'ushua) allowed to share in God's (YHUH) glory? John 17:5, "And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory (doxa) which I had with thee before the world was."
(I will use the word glory but the word honour is more correct. This word "glory" is a pagan word "identified with the Sun as being radiant, shining, brilliant, bright as the sun. "Gloria" was a Roman goddess that was half-naked and held the zodiac signs.) Honour, as you state, is the correct word.
Note: that Yah'ushua prays to the Father and asks for the honour (pw glory) he had WITH YHUH. He does not ask for YHUH's own honour (pw glory) or to be YHUH.
Adam and Eve shared in this honour (pw glory) they had WITH YHUH before they fell from it and came short of it.
Rom_3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the honour (pw glory) OF YHUH;
Yah'ushua did not come short but had honour (pw glory) with YHUH - He kept it by overcoming the world, as we can through His perfect offering (pw sacrifice) and through the pure spirit of YHUH.
Remember, Yah'ushua was made a little lower (in honour (pw glory) ) than the malakhim (pw angels) - made a man with flesh.
Heb_2:7 Thou MADEST him a little lower than the malakhim (pw angels) ; thou CROWNEDST him with splendour and honour, and didst SET him over the works of thy hands:
Note, it is YHUH that is doing the giving, setting and the crowning of Yah'ushua here.
QUESTION:How could a fleshly saviour save us from sin, since flesh is sinful and at enmity with the spirit? Jesus had to be God.
RESPONSE:When Adam and Eve were created in the flesh they were not sinful but perfect and good in the eyes of Yahuah. It is only gnosticism that teaches that all flesh is evil and that only spirit is good. In fact, this leads to the antinomian heresy that sin in the flesh / body does not lead to spiritual death, as if one has attained a spiritual separation from one's sins by a fake Jesus god and can continue sinning. Yahu'shua, the Son of man, showed that He, indeed, came in the flesh since He promptly died when he took upon him all our sins. This is evidence enough. But the pure spirit of Yahuah, his Father, rasied him from the dead since his Son's own body was guiltless of sin and innocent. His flesh was not evil as he always obeys To'rah which is righteousness.
When scripture says this: "I am the Lord: that is my name: and my honour (pw glory) will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images. (Isaiah 42:8) honour (pw glory) (כָּבוֹד) in this verse means glory or honor. In this verse, the word give (נָתַן) means to give, put, set. Here is the verse in its context: To open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from the dungeon and those who dwell in darkness from the prison. "I am the LORD, that is My name; I will not give My honour (pw glory) to another, Nor My praise to graven images. "Behold, the former things have come to pass, Now I declare new things; Before they spring forth I proclaim them to you."
Firstly remember, His name is not Lord, it is YHUH. This makes the argument that YHUH is YHUH, and Yah'ushua is Yah'ushua, two individual names, not the same. As we will see later Yah'ushua's name certainly bears YHUH's name -Yah'ushua , meaning Yah saves, it is Yahuah that is our redeemer and he sent Yah'ushua to accomplish His salvation for us .
YHUH has His own honour (pw glory) and Yah'ushua has been given His own, a certain kind of honour (pw glory) determined by the Father.
Now, as a child is to honour his parents, as commanded by YHUH, then the parents receive honour. In the same way Yah'ushua has been given honour by YHUH as mentioned in your first statement. It has been imputed to Him through His righteousness.
Let me repeat once again by referring you once more to the same scripture:
2 Cor 25 For he must reign, TILL he hath put all enemies under his feet. 26 The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. 27 For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted which did put all things under him. 28 And when all things shall be subdued unto him, THEN shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that YHUH may be all in all.
From the above we see that YHUH has not GIVEN his honour but loaned honour till heaven and earth have passed away and until death (the last enemy) is destroyed. This honour ends and THEN Yah'ushua is fully subject to YHUH and YHUH is all in all.
So YHUH has not abdicated His throne in any way, but delegated His power and authority for a time to his Son who makes His name and To'rah (Word made flesh) more honorable, not less honorable. This is what ministration means.
Parents have, by YHUH, also been given the power over their children to be honoured by them, even generally by secular civil law (although that is now also being corrupted), but this does not make parents YHUH. In the same light, children must not honour parents blindly if the parents are wilfully disobeying YHUH's commandments and are dishonouring YHUH. The context of obeying parents is that of parents who obey YHUH.
So YHUH has not given His honour (pw glory) away. On the contrary, by loaning His honour to Yah'ushua it is YHUH that has been magnified BY the Son. It is only the false trinity doctrine that elevates the false Jesus (Ieosous invented 400 years after first KJV, honouring a god Zeus, born on 25 December, which blasphemes the name of YHUH and tries to abolish his law (expressed as the true Word made flesh - Yah'ushua). This also attempts to take honour away from the Father.
Did YHUH not "loan" or impute his honour (pw glory) to Moses during his ministration?
II Cor 3:7 But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was GLORIOUS, so that the children of Israel could not stedfastly behold the face of Moses for the HONOUR (pw glory) OF HIS COUNTENANCE; which honour (pw glory) was to be done away: 8 How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather HONOURABLE (pw glorious)?
While false teachers jump all over this verse to say that the law has been done away with, when the words are clearly glaring them in the face that it is the MINISTRATION of that same law that has changed from Moses to the Spirit.
So the glory (honour) was on Moses, then on Yah'ushua (in the flesh), and now through the pure spirit of YHUH in us. But the honour of YHUH remains His own when He has accomplished all his purposes. Yes, YHUH will certainly NOT give His honour (pw glory) to another, namely SATAN who has been trying to take it by force and by many wiles - that is, after all, why YHUH sent his Son Yah'ushua, so that the USURPER of YHUH's HONOUR (pw glory) may be destroyed.
Messiah's ministration as High Priest has been loaned to him (as it was to Moses) until YHUH is again all in all and Yah'ushua subject to him.
Is 42:21 YHUH is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable. (....through Yah'ushua).
If YHUH's law is honourable then it is glory (honour) to YHUH's name - to Him alone.
Yah'ushua in no way contradicts Yahuah who says "my honour (pw glory) will I not give to another" since Yah'ushua bears witness of the Father - he does not bear false witness of Him or witness of Himself - he fulfills (carries out) the ten commandments (Ex 20:16)
Jn 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, THAT the Father may be honoured (pw glorified) in the Son.
The Father is honoured in what the Righteous Son does, just as a child brings honour to the parent (or shame when he does not obey).
Therefore it is not robbery for Yah'ushua to be equal with YHUH in being like-minded with YHUH.
This is unlike Satan, who attempts to usurp YHUH's honour (pw glory) for himself lawlessly (by breaking To'rah).
Is 14:12 How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! 13 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF YHUH: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: 14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. 15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to gehenna, to the sides of the pit.
Phllipians 2:6 Who, being in the form (nature) of YHUH, thought it not robbery to be equal with YHUH
Now, how could / can Yah'ushua be ”Equal with YHUH”? Well, in two ways, equal in agreement with the Father and his will. As is one of the meanings of the word, equal.
2470 isos ee'-sos probably from 1492 (through the idea of seeming); similar (in amount and kind):--+ agree, as much, equal, like. see GREEK for 1492
However let's use scripture to define "equal" here in the Hebrew understanding as the Pharisees declare here :
It is very simple. Yahuah Elohim is spirit and not a man but He created his first begotten Son in the spirit, thus his spiritual Father is Yahuah, thus equal as his spiritual kindred.
The stumbling block for the Pharisees was that the Son came in the flesh as a servant, lowering himself, so how could he be equal in kinship? To them equality should be always presented with power and position, not character based.
We will also receive this equal kinship/sonship since He has given us power to become the sons of Elohim by the same spirit, as we are servants to him in the flesh. It also will not be robbery since this rightful inheritance will be given to the righteous. To those who do not obey him it would be robbery to try and storm the gates or climb over the wall into the eternal home of the Father and demand kinship. This is the most part of the false religion of Christianity - self-entitlement without obedience to the Father's To'rah. (See John 10).
Now, lets see what it says of Noah
Hebrews 11:7 By faith Noah, being warned of YHUH of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became HEIR OF THE RIGHTEOUSNESS which is by faith.
Heir of the righteousness - Noah would not think it robbery to RECEIVE righteousness by faith since he has been GIVEN it from the Father by the works of faith he did - he has inherited it from the Father. Now, Noah was not literally begotten by YHUH but Yah'ushua was begotten, in addition to being faithful, so how much more is Yah'ushua then not to think of it as robbery to be an Heir of Righteousness (equal with YHUH) by being BOTH begotten AND faithful?
Heb 1:3 the express image of his person( character and action) *dikaios- In righteousness- right standing with YHUH - equitible in character or in act - innnocent - just
YHUH tells us to be perfect as He is also perfect - we are to be equal with him - in equity of HIS CHARACTER (which is fully righteous).
Gen17:1 And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, YHUH appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty Elohim; walk before me, and be thou perfect*.
8549 tamiym taw-meem' from 8552; entire (literally, figuratively or morally); also (as noun) integrity, truth:--without blemish, complete, full, perfect, sincerely (-ity), sound, without spot, undefiled, upright(-ly), whole. see HEBREW for 08552
The Father, on the other hand, is blasphemed by what the lawless (unrighteous) son of Satan does since he does not hear To'rah or do it.
John 8:42 If YHUH is your Father (as indeed He can be), ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from YHUH; neither came I of myself, but he sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my word (To'rah). 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, HE SPEAKETH OF HIS OWN (speaking of his own Honour - pw GLORY): for he is a liar, and the father of it.
True kinship is fully realised when the Son does as the Father - this is true equality when there is agreement as the word "equal" denotes.
"I will not give... My praise to graven images"
Yah'ushua is not a graven image but made in the image of YHUH by YHUH and brought out of YHUH (conceived in the flesh by Miriam, pw Mary), so that also is not blasphemy, since He truly is the Son of YHUH. YHUH remains the Majesty on High whilst He commands all the malakhim (pw angels) (his other created beings who are one with him and far more than just three), to worship the only begotten Son. Note: they are clearly told to worship (SERVE) his begotten Son. Heb 1:5-6. They are told to do this, as, in fact, it would not be obvious to them to do so since he is NOT Elohim. Elohim would need to make such a decree as it would be self evident if He were referring to himself, but he is NOT. Worship is a word that has a wide spectrum of meanings and the English translation falls short of the actual degree of the meaning. It certainly does not mean we replace Yah'uah Elohim with Yah'ushua and worship him above his Father or in a way that goes against the Father's commands. That would not be honouring the SOn or the Father. Honouring is the idea conveyed here rather than worship. While it states honour your father and mother in the scriptures the word could likewsie be distorted by using worship your father and mother. Most would obviously protest against such a use of the meaning it is understood to mean honour. Likewise when it come to the Messiah we honour him as he is appointed by Yah'uah his Father, we do not worship him the fullest sense of worship which can only be attributed to Yah'uah.
Also, Yah'ushua said, "...Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am." (John 8:58) Here is the context: "Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by. The word "am" in Greek eimi means to exist. Also stated from http://biblehub.com/greek/1510.htm: 1510 eimí (the basic Greek verb which expresses being, i.e. "to be") – am, is. 1510 (eimí), and its counterparts, (properly) convey "straight-forward" being (existence, i.e. without explicit limits).
Before this verse, in John 8:24, Yah'ushua says "I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins. Notice that he said "I am he". The word “he” isn't in the original Greek. So he further goes on to clarify to the Jews what he meant here by telling them before Abraham, he already existed.
By denying that Yah'ushua is YHUH, and rather declaring that he is His Son, as revealed by scripture, does not in any way deny Yah'ushua's pre-existence in the shamayim (pw heavenlies) before He became flesh. This time is what scripture calls the beginning of our time in this present shamayim (pw heaven) and earth). So He would have been revealed to Abraham in our time.
Note: Adam was made in the IMAGE of YHUH and the woman was brought out of the man (Adam) for man's purpose and for the honour (pw glory) of man. The man is not the woman but the woman was with(in) the man before she was made flesh and brought out of his side. Likewise, Yah'ushua was brought out of YHUH. Now, to say the man IS woman would be a problem (we now see that causing havoc in society today with feminism) and this is exactly what society does through the trinity heresy, saying Yah'ushua IS YHUH.
Jn 7:28 Ye both know me, and ye know whence I am (exist): and I am NOT come of myself, but he that SENT me is true.
Now, Yah'ushua was brought out of YHUH for YHUH's honour (pw glory) and purpose. Eve had no say in her existence and was not sent (or brought forth) of her own accord, neither was Yah'ushua. Adam was already in existence before Eve. YHUH was already in existence before Yah'ushua, but Yah'ushua only came to be begotten at the beginning of time, just as Adam did.
The Word was made flesh - the potential of Yah'ushua was already in the spirit of YHUH, for YHUH is Spirit. So, by the spirit of his Word (thoughts, intentions, plans, guidelines, instructions) YHUH begot Yahushua in the flesh through Miriam.
Jn 20:17 Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my Elohim, and your Elohim.
If Yah'ushua says YHUH is his Elohim, and YHUH is my Elohim, then why would I rely on what other pagan churches (circe-circus, goddess of destruction, Kali ) fathers in Nicae said hundreds of years after our Messiah, when Yah'ushua said it before they came along, and said it even though He pre-existed in Abraham's time? This means all the more that Yah'ushua, the Son, had YHUH as his Elohim in Abraham's time as well, and would have declared the very same thing to Abraham if He were then already in the flesh (but Yah'ushua was not yet in the flesh).
Now, was not Satan also present with Adam and Eve as the serpent - did he not exist - could he also not say, since Adam was I am ( I existed)? Could we then be foolish to say Satan is Elohim (pw God) since he claims a “since Abraham was I am”?
Why would we try to find obscure verses like "I am", which the Roman centurion said as well in normal sentences, and attempt to make these some sort of mysterious pronoun "I AM", when YHUH's name is any case is present continous, I Will Be What I Will Be.
Rom 3:4 Let all men be found to be liars and YHUH be true.
Num 23:19 YHUH is NOT a man, that he should lie; NEITHER the son of man, that he should repent..."
Meditate on that verse for 10 minutes. YHUH does not lie - He is NOT a man, period!
But what are men doing?
Trinity doctrine says that Yah'ushua IS fully "God" AND IS fully man.
Men are indeed lying that YHUH is a man. In fact, they go a step further by saying that the man is YHUH.
Yahushua was begotten of YHUH and made flesh, ie. Yah'ushua IS NOW a man and so He remains - a man (first begotten) purified by YHUH. Yahuah remains as He always has and will be, Spirit. Our bodies will also be quickened as Yahushua's was and we shall be begotten sons of YHUH upon the first resurrection when Yahushua returns.
That is why the Son bears the Father YHUH's name, as he does everything by Yah's authority - this is Hebraic understanding.
John 5:31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.
Yah'ushua is the messenger and the initiator of YHUH's wishes - the WORD made flesh.
The subject or contention here in John is the testimony of two or three witnesses, as required by To'rah for a true witness, as opposed to only one witness. The Scribes and Pharisess had just brought a woman supposedly accused of adultery WITHOUT any witnesses which is against To'rah. "Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? "The whole issue here is about bearing false witness, which they then have the cheek to try and pin onto Yah'ushua as an accusation against Him, that He, himself is a false witness since He is alone in what He claims about being a shining light on their evil misuse of the law. (It is what we often get accused of as believers when we use the authority of scripture to judge others in their error or sin). Yah'ushua immediately says He does not speak alone but by the law.
Jn 8:16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I AND the Father that sent me. 17 It is also written in your law, that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am ONE that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.
Here we can see that Yah'ushua can do math, unlike trinitarians who claim Jesus IS God, ie. ONE and the same thing. If two witnesses are required, and Yah'ushua is one and the same, ie. YHUH, then Yah'ushua's very argument would be a bit stupid as He would still be one witness. Instead, He says he is not ALONE and there are TWO witnesses. So, if saying "I am he", supposedly is to mean "I am YHUH", it would make him one and the same single witness and He would still need another.
In verse 28 Yah'ushua therefore reminds the trinitarians of the Shama (the Master our YHUH is one Elohim), and that He is not left alone - He is the Son, with the Father.
Son + Father = 2 witnesses
(full marks for maths, gives a truly legal witness)
Son = YHUH = 1 witness
(makes maths a lie, and worse, Yah'ushua's witness becomes a lie by To'rah standards - ie. short of 1 or more witnesses).
If YHUH were one and the same, as Yah'ushua, He would be breaking his very own To'rah - YHUH would be a false witness transgressing His own law and Yah'ushua would be a sinner - a defiled offering (pw sacrifice) - we would all be doomed.
Ex 20:16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.
Heb 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses:
ITim5:19 Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.
II Corninthians 13:1 1 This is the third time I am coming to you. In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
Deut 19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established. 16 If a false witness rise up against any man to testify against him that which is wrong; 17 Then both the men, between whom the controversy is, shall stand before YHUH, before the priests and the judges, which shall be in those days; 18 And the judges shall make diligent inquisition: and, behold, if the witness be a false witness, and hath testified falsely against his brother; 19 Then shall ye do unto him, as he had thought to have done unto his brother: so shalt thou put the evil away from among you.
Now, please bear with me as we continue on this very fact:
Mat 26:59 Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, SOUGHT FALSE WITNESS against Yah'ushua, to put him to death; 60 BUT FOUND NONE: yea, though MANY FALSE WITNESSES CAME, YET FOUND THEY NONE. At the last came TWO FALSE WITNESSES, 61 And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of YHUH, and to build it in three days. 62 And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee? 63 But Yah'ushua held his peace. And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living YHUH, that thou TELL US WHETHER THOU BE THE MESSIAH, THE SON OF YHUH. 64 Yah'ushua saith unto him, Thou hast said: (IE. CORRECT, I AM SON OF YHUH, NOT YHUH.) nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of MAN sitting on the right hand of power (STILL NOT SAYING HE IS YHUH BUT SITTING ON HIS RIGHT HAND), and coming in the clouds of shamayim (pw heaven). 65 Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy.
Note: the first false accusation against Yah'ushua is, He will destroy and rebuild the Temple (but we know He referred to the destruction and rebuilding of the flesh - body of believers, in his body, and the spiritual resurrection thereby). The House of Yahuah was destroyed much later in +/-70AD due to their own disobedience. Then the second accusation of blasphemy, saying that He, HIMSELF, alone allegedly claimed to be SON OF YHUH, when He is, in fact ,NOT alone in his claim / witness - he has YHUH as second witness. The accusation is not that He says He is YHUH, and we know He certainly does not make such a claim. What they do is ignore Yah'ushua's most legal witness, and that is YHUH himself through His To'rah and the prophets, referring to the time of the coming of the Son of YHUH and his works. The high priest now bears false witness by saying, he has no need of further witnesses, when, in fact, by To'rah he does - he requires two or more witnesses to disprove Yah'ushua's claim that He is the Son of YHUH, or that He has turned the people away from To'rah to serve another Elohim. Instead, the priest goes against To'rah and simply says, no further need of witnesses. This is an unfair lawless trial for which the false accusers, according to To'rah, should be punished with the same punishment and be tortured on the stake like Messiah.
The very contention with the Jews was a continual attempt to accuse Yah'ushua of blasphemy, for which the legal right by To'rah is capital punishment, death. Over and over again the blasphemy was not that Yah'ushua was saying he was YHUH but that He was saying He was the Son of YHUH, and that they were attempting to accuse him of making this statement ALONE and without another witness to confirm it.
Amongst other things, blasphemy is when one either claims to be YHUH or tries to replace him or speaks / acts against his To'rah. Most Christendom today does all of that by twisting Apostle Paul's words (we are not under the law). In fact, Stephen and Paul were similarly falsely accused in scripture of being against the law. These false accusers began the fable that Yah'ushua had come to change the law. They made this false accusation of Stephen so he could be stoned. Now, today, Christianity continues their lie.
No such thing had been said! So Yah'ushua makes it
is Messiah. But their unbelief causes dull hearing and false
Acts 6:13 And set up FALSE witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law: 14 For we have heard him say, that this Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) of Nazareth shall destroy this place, and shall change the customs which Moses delivered us.
Here we see that Yah'ushua's witness is Deuteronomy 13 - the works of YHUH - to obey His To'rah and not lead men astray to serve another god (in other words J-Zeus, Jesus is god, god incarnate) by lying signs and wonders. Incarnation or re-incarnation are all pagan terminology and pagan concepts.
John10:24 Then came the Jews round about him, and said unto him, How long dost thou make us to doubt? If thou be the Messiah, tell us plainly. 25 Yah'ushua answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. 26 But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. 27 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, IS GREATER THAN ALL; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. 30 I and my Father are one. 31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him. 32 Yah'ushua answered them, Many good works have I shewed you FROM MY FATHER; for which of those works do ye stone me? 33 The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not;...
John 10:33 continuing … but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself YHUH.
Now, again, we see that they make a false accusation. Yah'ushua has just said that He has already told them before that He is their Messiah (not YHUH!).
So what is Yah'ushua's answer? Surely when someone does not understand you make it plain to them who you are? Does He claim to be YHUH or the Son of YHUH?
John 10:34 Yah'ushua answered them, Is it not written in your law, I (YHUH speaking) said, Ye are gods? 35 If he (YHUH) called them gods, unto whom the word of YHUH came, and the scripture cannot be broken; 36 Say ye of him (Yah'ushua), whom the Father hath purified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son OF YHUH?
No, instead He makes the argument that they are falsely accusing him of blaspheming since He is saying He is the Son of Yahuah, not Yahuah, something totally different and something already prophesied in the law, which they should be reading to judge him correctly.Many have a misunderstanding due to the problem with translation since "gods" here is refering to judge, magistrate, malakh (pw angel) meaning messenger - someone who can decide between right and wrong - ie. judge a case. Moses would have been such a man as well, a messenger of To'rah and judging cases under it. So Yah'ushua does not say he is YHUH but He emphatically says “I said I am the SON OF YHUH” and He uses what YHUH has declared for the children of the Most High, that they are eloha (magistrates - able to discern between good and evil by To'rah), as written in Psalms that He is quoting.
Psalms 82:1 Elohim standeth in the congregation of El; he judgeth among the elohim. 2 How long will ye JUDGE UNJUSTLY, and accept the persons of the wicked? Selah. 3 Defend the poor and fatherless: do justice to the afflicted and needy. 4 Deliver the poor and needy: rid them out of the hand of the wicked. 5 They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness: all the foundations of the earth are out of course. I have said, Ye are eloha (sons of YHUH); and all of you are children of the most High. 7 But ye shall die like men, and fall like one of the princes. 8 Arise, O YHUH, judge the earth: for thou shalt inherit all nations.
Notice, it is all about judging righteously, Yah is the judge above all the judges / magistrates (pw g-o-ds") even those who judge unjustly - Messiah was calling the sanhedrin out when He made reference to this verse - they would have known this section. They were judging him unjustly, making him out to be claiming to be Elohim (pw God).
John 10:37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. 38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.
So, in summary, in case you missed it the first time:
1) False accusation:
John10:33 ...thou, being a man, MAKEST THYSELF GOD (ELOHIM).
2) Correct answer:
Thou blasphemest; BECAUSE I SAID I AM THE SON OF GOD (ELOHIM)?
Note how the false accusation in John 10:33 is different to a statement the Pharisees had made 5 chapters earlier
This of course was a correct deduction to make and scripturally it is of course correct.
Phil 2:6 Who, being in the form of Elohim, thought it not robbery to be equal with ElohimIt is blatantly clear that the truth was stretched, from being equal in kinship to then suddenly being Elohim himself 5 chapters later.
This exaggeration, lie and false accusation progressed in the development of the pagan Catholic church and her diluted Catholic pagan Protestant sister churches as they conjured up an accusation that makes Yah'ushua appear to make himself Elohim (pw God) when it is they themselves who create their own J-Zeus /Jesus god. The result is then that they take the next giant step to the pit, saying, Mary, Mother of God. This pagan idolatry nauseates any true To'rah-keeping believer in the everlasting covenant.
So Yah'ushua is doing the works, and therefore, they should believe on Him as the Son of YHUH as He is discerning more perfectly between good and evil by the Spirit of the Father. He is fulfilling the law (carrying it out), and that is why He says, as a Son of YHUH (First Begotten), they should believe Him by his WORKS (To'rah OBEDIENCE), as a true Son of YHUH as he is leading men TO YHUH's To'rah, not away from it. Yah'ushua passes the Deuteronomy 13 test.
Some erroneously think "works" here are signs and wonders (miracles) but they are not. Deuteronomy 13 places no weight on miracles but rather uses them to test followers of blasphemers (False Messiahs) who turn men away from YHUH's To'rah (guidelines and instructions of Genesis - Revelations) by signs and wonders. Yah'ushua himself said, an evil generation seeks signs.
Now, to think the gods he is referring to in Psalm 82 here refers to immortality in men is a grave mistake, excuse the pun, since the very definition of these gods in Psalm 82 comes with the condition of mortality, verse 7 But ye shall die like men. Even though we are all originally the (vs 6) children of the Most High, we have fallen and die because of sin. This heresy of "little gods" while not under To'rah is rampant in the Word of Faith Movement. They too shall die like mortal men and be resurrected to destruction, not eternal life, as they are lawless and see Messiah as an idol, the immortal Elohim (pw God), when He is not.
Thus Messiah is properly a Magistrate judging and bringing the
To'rah. He also died a mortal death like any man and the more so as he
bore all our sins, and it is Yahuah who raises him up on the third day.
He is no Elohim (pw God) but the Son of Elohim (pw God), and we,
through the resurrection of the
mortal Yah'ushua by Yahuah the Father, have also been given the power
BECOME the SONS OF ELOHIM by that resurrection on that day when He
So the ultimate end result is that we become SONS of ELOHIM not ELOHIM, the same applied to Yah'ushua he was the FIRST begotten Son of Elohim.
Who created all things? Did God (YHUH)? Isaiah 44:24 says
"Thus saith the Lord, thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the Lord that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the shamayim (pw heaven)s ALONE; that spreadeth abroad the earth BY MYSELF;"
If God is the only creator of all things by himself, then why does Colosians 1:15-17 state this:
Who is the image of the invisible Elohim (pw God), the firstborn of every creature: "For by him were all things created, that are in shamayim (pw heaven), and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist."
Who is these verses talking about? The him is namely Yah'ushua because in context the verses talk about him as "the image of the invisible Elohim (pw God)".
The verses go on further to state in verse 19
"For it pleased the Father that in him should all fulness dwell;"
Who created everything? God (YHUH). But haven't I shown that Yah'ushua is said to have created all things.
Sadly you have not shown that Yah'ushua created all things but rather assumed that the “Him” in “For by Him were all things created” is referring to Yah'ushua when the context is indeed referring to Yahuah in the sentence.
If it were, then the verse would be saying that “He”, the FIRSTBORN, created everything. This would mean that something that is born (has a beginning) is self-existent. That is impossible. YHUH, the Creator, was not born. A clear contradiction.
"Thus saith YHUH-the self existent one (pw theLord), thy redeemer, and he that formed thee from the womb, I am the YHUH-the self existent one (pw theLord) that maketh all things; that stretcheth forth the shamayim (pw heaven)s ALONE; that spreadeth abroad the earth BY MYSELF;"
He has just said that He is the beginning of every creature, created being. Messiah is that created being-begotten.
Yes, Messiah is the image of the invisible Elohim. This further proves he is not Elohim since He is created in His image, as was Adam, and thus so are we. Hence, Messiah is the last Adam made (created by Elohim) with a quickening spirit (1 Cor 15:45 )
This is why the translators at least got that part right when they placed a colon in the sentence since the “: For by him” refers to the invisible YHUH that was referred to in the sentence. The image is always created, just as Adam was created in the image OF YHUH. The image is not the original self-existent YHUH. An image is always a later consequence of the original substance thought, idea, etc. that proceeds from the original. So Yah'ushua proceeds as the image out of YHUH's self-existence.
The eternal cannot die – Yah'ushua, as man, died and was resurrected by the eternal Father. If Yah'ushua, the man, were able to raise Himself then He would never have died in the first place.
1Cor 6:14 And YHUH hath both raised up the Master (Yah'ushua), and will also raise up us by his OWN power.
“For by HIM" refers to the invisible Elohim, not the image (Yah'ushua). Like Eve was created FOR ADAM, Yah'ushua was begotten FOR YHUH, and then YHUH gave away his begotten Son because He so loved the world. You can't give yourself but say you gave your son, that would simply be a lie. YHUH is not a liar. The image of YHUH is not YHUH. Yah'ushua said two seemingly contradictory things:
John 14:9 “He that hath seen me hath seen the Father”
Seen what? the express image of His person (as stated in Hebrews) - the works and words of To'rah, not YHUH Himself, eg. His face etc.
John 15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also.
John 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other MAN did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
Yah'ushua also stated, what is erroneously seen as contradictory:
1 Jn 4:20 If a man say, I love YHUH, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love YHUH whom he hath NOT SEEN?
In this verse Yah'ushua is stating He is not YHUH himself physically or in any other way.
So Yah'ushua is categorically NOT the invisible Father since no MAN has seen YHUH, this plainly shows Yah'ushua is not YHUH as He is standing right before their eyes speaking this verse.
Heb 10:12 But this MAN (Yah'ushua), after he had offered one offering (pw sacrifice) for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of YHUH; [the still unseen (but to be seen in the future) invisible YHUH].
YOUR NEXT QUESTION:
"If this isn't enough proof, let's look at Isaiah 45:21-23,
"Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I the Lord? and there is no Elohim (pw God) else beside me; a just Elohim (pw God) and a Saviour; there is none beside me. Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am Elohim (pw God), and there is none else. I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
First, Who is savior but God (YHUH) alone?
Isaiah 43:11, "I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour."
But does scripture call Jesus savior. Luke states in verse 11 that Christ is our savior:
"For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Messiah (pw Christ) the Lord." Even the Samaritans said this: "And said unto the woman, Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Messiah (pw Christ), the Saviour of the world."
OUR RESPONSE:The correct translation is
Your translation has Lord, implying, Master, when it should be LORD. When LORD is there it means the original "YHUH" - the self-existent one, Yahuah should be there. "Lord" leaves doubt as to whether we are referring to Master Yah'ushua or Master Yahuah here. But LORD, although a pagan translation it makes it clear as to the always translated tetragrammaton: YHUH, Yahuah alone. Secondly, your translation uses saviour for Hebrew 3467 "yasha" but salvation is the more correct all encompassing word here.
3467 yasha` yaw-shah' a primitive root; properly, to be open, wide or free, i.e. (by implication) to be safe; causatively, to free or succor:--X at all, avenging, defend, deliver(-er), help, preserve, rescue, be safe, bring (having) salvation, save(-iour), get victory.
The translators would have been well advised that this translation using "saviour" would be contradictory since the prophet Nehemiah himself refers to the many saviours that Yahuah has given and they were not "gods" or ever considered "divine"
YHUH, the Father, saved us by the giving of his gift, namely his saviour Son from shamayim (pw heaven). YHUH is indeed the one who saves . It was YHUH's favour /chesed (pw grace) that caused Him to offer up His son for us.
Now, it is the Word of Yahuah that is salvation – doctrine, that saves - Yah'ushua's blood, death and resurrection WITHOUT obedience to the Word cannot save us, just as Yah'ushua could not save us unless He obeyed the originator of our salvation, YHUH, through his Word.
As an aside:
Luk 22:42 Saying, Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.
Luk 22:43 And there appeared a malakh (pw angel) unto him from shamayim (pw heaven), strengthening him.
Luk 22:44 And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.
Yah'ushua obeyed YHUH fully as a man, He felt the fear and anguish as a man, if He were YHUH how could this be? Yah'ushua was showing human weakness and concerns (not sin), but weakness which YHUH would not have.
Yah'ushua came to preach obedience to the Word – that, with His perfect offering (pw sacrifice), is what saves us. That is why He is the author and finisher of our emunah (pw faith) (steadfast moral conviction to obey). I do not speak heresy or blasphemy here since Paul agrees:
1 Timothy 16 Take heed unto thyself, and unto the DOCTRINE; continue in them: for in DOING this thou shalt both SAVE thyself, and them that HEAR thee.
And the converse is true - it is wrong doctrine that also sends men to Gehenna (pw hell), it is called damnable heresy. Changing doctrine is what caused the original sin in Eden. Correct doctrine is what restores what happened in Eden and this is what the honour of Yah'ushua is.
II Peter 1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying (contradicting) YHUH that bought them, and bring upon themselves SWIFT DESTRUCTION.
There is only one Saviour of the world
and that is YHUH who provides saviours, and he provided the ultimate
SAVIOUR, Yah'ushua, the last Adam, the only saviour that was
save the whole world from sin for those who repent.
Noah was a saviour of his household by faith - he also became the condemner of the world and HEIR OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Heb 11:7 By moral conviction (pw faith) Noah, being warned of YHUH of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by emunah (steadfast moral conviction to obey)(pw faith).
So we see that it is YHUH's Word that saves men or it is the corruption of it that causes their destruction, despite what Yah'ushua did on the execution stake. Indeed, Yah'ushua came to save the world by his death, but it is YHUH who saved Yah'ushua from death by raising Him, without which no salvation would exist!
So when we DO and TEACH the WORD, as Yah'ushua, the WORD made flesh, did and taught, we save others, and so, indirectly, we are saviours by the favour and authority of YHUH. In fact, as Paul says here, we become the saviour of others and ourselves. This is in no way blasphemy since it is what scripture teaches. This is the gospel commission after all.
Mat 28:18 And Yah'ushua came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in shamayim (pw heaven) and in earth. 19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, immersing (pw baptizing) them in(to) the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of pure spirit: 20 Teaching them to observe (DO) ALL THINGS WHATSOEVER I HAVE COMMANDED YOU:
Take note that Yah'ushua again makes it clear that he has been GIVEN all power over shamayim (pw heaven) and earth. Since shamayim (pw heaven) and earth has a beginning and end - Alpha (Aleph) and Omega (Tav), this power is actually loaned, or let's say delegated. Yah'ushua cannot be given something unless he must receive it from the self-existent Father YHUH from whence he was begotten.
Also, Who do we bow our knee before? God alone!
Philippians 2:10, "That at the name of Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) every knee should bow, of things in shamayim (pw heaven), and things in earth, and things under the earth;"
Why would God allow us to bow before Yah'ushua if he wasn't God? -
"for I am Elohim (pw God), and there is none else."
Then verse 11 says,
"And that every tongue should confess that Yah'ushua (pw Jesus) Messiah (pw Christ) is Master (pw Lord), to the honour (pw glory) of Elohim (pw God) the Father."
The word for Lord is kurios koo'-ree-os from kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, i.e. (as noun) controller; by implication, Master (as a respectful title):-- God, Lord, master, Sir. So why would our confessing that Yah'ushua is Lord (kurios) glorify God the Father?
We bow to the Father (YHUH) in the name of Yah'ushua when we pray:
Eph 3:14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father OF our Master Yah'ushua Messiah, 15 Of whom the whole family in shamayim (pw heaven) and earth is named, 16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his honour (pw glory), to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
However, when we are wicked and face the Magistrate Yah'ushua, then we bow for a different reason:
As clearly stated, Yah'ushua is appointed Magistrate by the Majesty on high. So, if we are wicked we bow to the judge Yah'ushua and to YHUH, the appointer of that Magisrate.
Acts 17:31 Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness BY that MAN whom he hath ordained (appointed, decreed, limited to) whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that HE (YHUH) hath raised him(Yah'ushua) from the dead. (Yah'ushua did not raise himself since he was man - a dead man, period!)
In the same way one calls the Magistrate “My Lord”, because he is acting under the Majesty of England lets say - so it is with Yah'ushua. The emphasis is the name /authority, not Yah'ushua himself, - the name is the authority with which Yah'ushua operates from YHUH's throne. If the Magistrate is appointed by the Majesty of the country the person addreses him because he bears the appointed authority of the Majesty on his throne. It does not make the Magistrate the Majesty on High. When the appointed Magistrate, Yah'ushua, puts the full penalty of YHUH's law (curse of the law-wages of sin and death) upon the shoulders of the wicked, they will certainly bow whether they like it or not. Every knee will bow, not in worship here, but pure submission, whether willing or not, since He has been appointed Magistrate. True worship requires obedience by free will, that is the basis of true worship - these people do not obey thus they are punished. Crying to the rocks "fall on us" (a rock on you should make you bend your knees). Yahuah is the Rock and Messiah is the appointed Magistrate to bring that judgement to crush the rebellious.
Jn 6:16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to STAND?
Yah'ushua is indeed Master (pw lord, lard, baali etc) in the same way the world addresses a Magistrate as with the pagan title "My Lord" in some countries - a respectful title similar to Sir or Mister, Doctor, Your Honour etc. Yes, some think they are Elohim (pw God) as soon as they get a title but these are carnal men. Yah'ushua is not sinful flesh but full of YHUH's spirit - He did not have a Elohim (pw God) complex. He knew he was the Son of YHUH with the appointment of authority.
Yahuah would certainly allow us to bow to the Master since He has so decreed it from the foundation of the world. He did not say there is none other than me to which you must not bow, He said, do not bow to graven images, do not make your own images of what has been created by Yahuah and worship them as though they are All Mighty. Do not make representations of what Yahuah has created and bow to those things as if they are Sovereign powers. These are man-made images of what Yahuah has made. Messiah has also been created by Yahuah himself, however as an image of Yahuah himself. Messiah is not an idol but the pure representation of the image of Yahuah by word and deed- a living representation, not a man-made statue etc. This is why we were commanded not to make false images and bow to them since they blaspheme the Father's own created image he had prepared for us - his own Son, as prophesied, to which we may bow down, recognising him as the Sovereign's Son. So who are you to question why we should be allowed to bow to him when He has decreed that? What He has never decreed is that He be named and madeYahuah the All Mighty One, yet that you do not question and rather wish to follow. I continue to not bow to images or icons of Yah'ushua as commanded but to the Son, as commanded, when He returns, in recognition of his apointed authority by his Father.
John 14:28 for my Father is greater than I.
YOU FURTHER STATED:
“for I am God, and there is none else." Then verse 11 says, "And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the honour (pw glory) of God the Father." The word for Lord is kurios koo'-ree-os from kuros (supremacy); supreme in authority, i.e. (as noun) controller; by implication, Master (as a respectful title):-- God, Lord, master, Sir. So why would our confessing that Yah'ushua is Lord (kurios) glorify God the Father?
Simply because it confirms that YHUH his Father raised him from the dead. If the immortal Father were not there to raise the mortal (man) Messiah he would still be in the grave. What a liar YHUH would be - where would His honour (pw glory) be if His appointed advocate does not arrive on the day of justice but was still sleeping in the grave? Satan would then be the Master (Lord) since death had not lost its sting. Yah'ushua obeyed and suffered to the death and YHUH raised him from death - thus was death for mortal MAN struck a blow.
Yah'ushua, yes, is supreme in authority over shamayim (pw heaven) and earth - that is why the malakhim (pw angels) must obey Him - He is the head too over the assembly (pw church-circus) the body of believers, in no way does this detract, or take away from YHUH's honour (pw glory). It still brings honour to YHUH. Peter also made it clear that the same title of respect is applied to the husband or should be (but today's standard has been corrupted by feminism and pagan thinking).
1 Pet 3:6 Even as Sara obeyed Abraham, calling him Master (pw lord kurios): whose daughters ye are, as long as ye do well, and are not afraid with any amazement. 7 Likewise, ye husbands, dwell with them according to knowledge, giving HONOUR unto the wife, as unto the weaker vessel.
Note: the one in subjection has honour (pw glory) GIVEN by commandment of YHUH and the woman gives honour to the husband above her. The same applies to chidren honouring parents.
Note: the honour(pw glory) is mentioned and so is the clear and precise order of Sovereignty to YHUH who is above all - Majesty on High.
I wish for you to reflect upon the following for at least a week and try to apply the trinity doctrine to it - the light of this scripture will expose the trinity doctrine for what it causes – disorder and dishonour, it is contradictory to Pauls' allegory:
1 Cor 11:3 But I would have you know, that the HEAD of EVERY MAN is MESSIAH; and the HEAD of the woman is the man; and the HEAD of MESSIAH is YHUH. 4 Every man praying or prophesying, having his head covered, dishonoureth his head. 5 But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered dishonoureth her head: for that is even all one as if she were shaven. 6 For if the woman be not covered, let her also be shorn: but if it be a shame for a woman to be shorn or shaven, let her be covered. 7 For a man indeed ought not to cover his head, forasmuch as HE IS THE IMAGE AND HONOUR (pw glory) OF YHUH: but the WOMAN IS THE HONOUR (pw glory) OF THE MAN. 8 For the man is not of the woman; but the woman of the man. 9 Neither was the man created for the woman; but the woman for the man. 10 For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the malakhim (pw angels). 11 Nevertheless neither is the man without the woman, neither the woman without the man, in YHUH. 12 For as the woman is of the man, even so is the man also by the woman; but all things of YHUH.
I could write a 20 page sermon on this deep passage that Paul gives us but I will try to make it short.
Trinitarians use the term “GODHEAD” erroneously, whereas the above allegory clearly shows YHUH is SUPREME, HEAD over all.
If it is in the correct order, as ordained for the body of Messiah, then we have harmony with YHUH's honour (pw glory).
Note: mentioned here numerous times is: head, covering, honour (glory).
The honour (pw glory) is not diminished in any way by the functions of each (male, female, Yah'ushua or YHUH) but it all flows up to YHUH, thus ending with vs 12 “but all things of YHUH”. YHUH has purposed the function and order and hierarchy for HIS ultimate honour (pw glory).
However, if this order is corrupted by Satan then YHUH is blasphemed, placing Yah'ushua as the Supreme Head = YHUH, then Yah'ushua is no longer the mediator between man and YHUH but this falsely created Supreme Head, and we start having female deities like Mary coming along in Catholicism (or Shakti, Isis, Queen of Heaven (Mother of God) etc) as mediatrixes instead.
Paul is not a trinitarian but a true Yahudi - worshipper of Yah (pagan derogatory word later invented - Jew, misleading-contraction of Judaite) as in the Shama (which I follow too as a worshipper of Yah, Yahudi).
1 Tim 2: 5 For there IS one YHUH (shama), and one mediator between YHUH and men, the MAN Yah'ushua Hamashiach;
I don't think I have to say it again but just in case:
He is the MAN who is our mediator, still, for us.
Yah'ushua is the only MAN that has ascended to shamayim (pw heaven).
Jn 3: 13 And no MAN hath ascended up to shamayim (pw heaven), but He (the MAN) that came down from shamayim (pw heaven), even the Son OF MAN which IS in shamayim (pw heaven).
The Son of Man (last Adam) in shamayim (pw heaven) became the Son of YHUH as he was purified by YHUH, as we too can be, through His Spirit.
Yah'ushua became the Son in whom YHUH was well pleased as He learned obedience under temptation, in every human way, yet did not sin.
Yah'ushua could not learn something if He was all-knowing (omniscient, that is what YHUH is).
Yah'ushua also does not know when his Father will send Him again for the Last Day.
Please get that doctrine written on your heart.
Likewise, the existence of Eve was already potentially contained in Adam (genetics - bone of my bone and flesh of my flesh) by YHUH's Spirit (ruwach-breath of life) breathed into Adam.
Note: that the man cannot / could not exist without the woman, and the woman without the man.
It is almost as if Paul, inspired by the spirit, was testifying to the trinitarians to come out of tri-unity heresy here when he says
Eph 4:13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith,
Not, till we all come into the tri-unity faith.
And then, what does he say right after that, is the knowledge that we need for such a unity (as opposed to a tri-unity), he says, it is the knowledge of the SON OF YHUH, ie. acknowledging or realising that Yah'ushua Messiah came in the flesh and is the Son of YHUH.
He does not stop there, he says, as a play on words - unto a perfect MAN (as the Son of YHUH is), not a perfect god, unto the measure of the stature and fullness of Messiah.
It cannot be any clearer, Paul clearly states here what the Messiah spirit of unity is, as opposed to what the anti-Messiah spirit is
2 John 1:7 For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Messiah Yah'ushua IS COME in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an anti-Messiah.
Note: MANY deceivers - so the majority of so-called believers are deceived by such a Jesus Christ is Elohim (pw God) (Spirit), rather than He is flesh doctrine.
Note: also IS COME*, * not CAME, ie. present imperfect tense - erchomai
1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit OF YHUH: Every spirit that confesseth that Yah'ushua Messiah IS COME in the flesh is OF YHUH:
Again, erchomai, present imperfect tense, since the Son remains the purified Messiah in the flesh and returns as such.
2Jn 1:9 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Messiah (pw Christ), hath not Elohim (pw God). He that abideth in the doctrine of Messiah (pw Christ), he hath both the Father and the Son.
10 If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him Elohim (pw God) speed: 11 For he that biddeth him Elohim (pw God) speed is partaker of his evil deeds.
Further, Isaiah 7:14 say this, "Therefore the YHUH (pw LORD) himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel." Immanuel means God is with us. So let's look at prophesy fulfilled. "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, Elohim (pw God) with us." (Matthew 1:23)
Yes, YHUH is truly with us (those who are loyally covenanted to him) and it was prophesied that YHUH had not forsaken His people - that He would renew his everlasting covenant, and the action of Yah'ushua is to indeed bring YHUH to us - called spirit of reconciliation:
2 Cor 5:19 To wit, that YHUH was in Messiah (my comment - as He now should be in us), reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Messiah, as though YHUH did beseech you by us: we pray you in Messiah (pw Christ)'s stead, be ye reconciled to YHUH (my comment - so that YHUH is within you ).
Do we actually see anybody calling Yah'ushua Emmanuel? Well, not clearly in Greek translation - I believe Paul made reference to Emmanuel, but before we get there :
1 John 4:2 Hereby know ye the Spirit of YHUH: Every spirit that confesseth that Yah'ushua Messiah is come in the flesh is of YHUH:
Rom 8:29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predetermine (pw predestinate) to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn AMONG MANY brethren. 30 Moreover whom he did predetermine, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, THEM HE ALSO MADE HONOURABLE (pw glorified)-
their honour (pw glory) does not detract from YHUH but points to YHUH.
Paul then says:
Rom8:31 What shall we then say to these things? If YHUH be for us, who can be against us?
YHUH Be For Us
El for Us
El with us
So this conforming to the image of the Son of YHUH is what gives Yah'ushua the name Emmanuel, or the authority for us to say YHUH is with us and not against us, since we are also given the power to become the sons of YHUH.
Note: if YHUH is not for or with us then we do not get chastised as sons and we are bastards.
Heb 12:7 If ye endure chastening, YHUH dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? 8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.
Rev 3:19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.
What chastisement did Yah'ushua receive - the highest - for our sins - why? Because he was the Son who was bruised for our inquities. The Father cannot receive the chastisement - the Father gives the chastisement. If Yah'ushua is The Father then He was self-flagellating Himself at the execution stake - a Catholic doctrine again, some sort of pagan penance. Self-abuse is condemned:
1 Cor 6:9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of YHUH? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor ABUSERS OF THEMSELVES with mankind.
Lev 19:28 Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am YHUH.
Yes, sadly we have the Graeco-Roman translation to thank for their anti-Hebrew slant of scriptures again. If we look at some names in our Hebrew scriptures, since salvation is of the Yahudim (pw Jews), and not the Greeks or Romans etc, then we get a fuller understanding of YHUH, Yahuah (Yah) given names that bear His own name. The names always point TO YHUH (Yah), it does not make the holder of that name YHUH himself:

I still believe that Yah'ushua has to be God (YHUH) to forgive sins. The Jews said in their heart when Yah'ushua said your sins are forgiven, who can forgive sins except for God. -Luke 5:20-22, "And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee. And the scribes and the Pharisees began to reason, saying, Who is this which speaketh blasphemies? Who can forgive sins, but God alone?" (And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth. - Matthew 9)
Now, did not Yah'ushua give us similar authority to forgive men their sins who directly offend us and who repent directly to us. Did He not say if we do not forgive men their sins then neither will your Father in shamayim (pw heaven) forgive you.
Now, since Yah'ushua is of the order of High Priest as well, He has the same authority. Now, how did the Levitical Priest forgive men their sins? By the authority given to them by YHUH in the temple. Let's look:
Leviticus 4:35 And he shall take away all the fat thereof, as the fat of the lamb is taken away from the offering (pw sacrifice) of the peace offerings; and the priest shall burn them upon the altar, according to the offerings made by fire unto YHUH: and the PRIEST SHALL MAKE AN ATONEMENT FOR HIS SIN THAT HE HATH COMMITTED, AND IT SHALL BE FORGIVEN HIM.
Remember, Yah'ushua prayed the prayer: forgive us our tresspasses - He prayed this to our (including His) Father.
Remember, He prayed: forgive them for they know not what they do. All authority was in prayer to the Father for the forgiveness of other's sins.
The Pharisees did not know Yah'ushua is of the order of Melchizedek, and so they were in blasphemy for not recognising the authority of the Priest Yah'ushua, who is Himself the living offering (pw sacrifice) of atonement for us. The Pharisees were always claiming blasphemy only because they did not accept the authority given to Yah'ushua by YHUH. They wanted to be the big authority in town and had forgotten to follow the To'rah and the prophets.
If you knew you would be the offering (pw sacrifice) for atonement, you, indeed, could forgive sins since you are the one who is taking every one of those sins upon your own head, so it was for Yah'ushua.
Did these people who came to Yah'ushua not repent directly to Yah'ushua, knowing that they had offended Him and his Father, in that the Son of YHUH would have to take their sins on Himself?
Remember, that the man is head over the woman, so now lets apply To'rah - see if you can apply this to what I said about Yah'ushua being given authority over every man:
Num 30: 2 If a man vow a vow unto YHUH, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth. 3 If a woman also vow a vow unto YHUH, and bind herself by a bond, being in her father's house in her youth; 4 And her father hear her vow, and her bond wherewith she hath bound her soul, and her father shall hold his peace at her: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she hath bound her soul shall stand. 5 But if her father disallow her in the day that he heareth; not any of her vows, or of her bonds wherewith she hath bound her soul, shall stand: and YHUH shall forgive her, because her father disallowed her. 6 And if she had at all an husband, when she vowed, or uttered ought out of her lips, wherewith she bound her soul; 7 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her in the day that he heard it: then her vows shall stand, and her bonds wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. 8 But if her husband disallowed her on the day that he heard it; then he shall make her vow which she vowed, and that which she uttered with her lips, wherewith she bound her soul, of none effect: and YHUH SHALL FORGIVE HER. 9 But every vow of a widow, and of her that is divorced, wherewith they have bound their souls, shall stand against her. 10 And if she vowed in her husband's house, or bound her soul by a bond with an oath; 11 And her husband heard it, and held his peace at her, and disallowed her not: then all her vows shall stand, and every bond wherewith she bound her soul shall stand. 12 But if her husband hath utterly made them void on the day he heard them; then whatsoever proceeded out of her lips concerning her vows, or concerning the bond of her soul, shall not stand: her husband hath made them void; and YHUH SHALL FORGIVE HER. 13 Every vow, and every binding oath to afflict the soul, her husband may establish it, or her husband may make it void. 14 But if her husband altogether hold his peace at her from day to day; then he establisheth all her vows, or all her bonds, which are upon her: he confirmeth them, because he held his peace at her in the day that he heard them. 15 But if he shall any ways make them void after that he hath heard them; THEN SHALL HE BEAR HER INQUITY
Yah'ushua loosed the inquity from the broken vow (broken covenant through sin, between YHUH and her, the bride, Israel ) but still bore that iniquity upon Himself, and atoned as the offering (pw sacrifice), as the Lamb, Himself. Yah'ushua, as the head man over every man, had authority to say "your sins are forgiven" as He made the broken covenant itself void, and renewed it by his death. (Rom 7-8)
This similar authority regarding covenant and the applied law has been extended to the men who recognise Messiah as their head.
Mat16:19 And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of shamayim (pw heaven): and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in shamayim (pw heaven): and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in shamayim (pw heaven).
There is no blasphemy in this either since it is authority given by the Father to us through the mediator, the Son of YHUH.
This is the same language Paul uses :
Rom 3:31 Do we then make VOID the law through faith (steadfastness / moral conviction)? YHUH forbid: yea, we ESTABLISH THE LAW.
In other words we make the law more binding by doing it by emunah (pw faith) and thus justify and stand as witnesses for the coming inevitable judgment on those who do not repent and do not keep the law.
If YHUH is King then his Son is Prince, sharing the throne but not taking it over.
Test Every Spirit
The Marcion spirit makes two eloha (pw gods) - an evil god of the Everlasting Covenant (pw old testament), and a good god of a so-called new testament. YHUH would have to be the evil god for these To'rah (law)-haters and Jesus would have to be the good god who abolishes YHUH's so-called evil To'rah (law). The only way to do that is to make this Greek “Jesus” god and make the other Elohim (pw God) (YHUH) mere Jewish history. YHUH is not history since his Son came to magnify HIStory of salvation starting with the everlasting covenant in the Tanakh (erroneously called Old Testament). Let us test every spirit - there is only one true spirit of unity in the assembly of Yah'ushua with YHUH over all, there is not a tri-unity.
A True Witness By Simon Peter (Not a Jehovah's Witness, but a Yahudi-worshiper of Yahuah)
Mark 8: Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? 14 And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. 15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
And Simon Peter answered and said, as thou sayest thou art the I Am.
NO!!! Peter does not say such a thing!
"Thou art the Messiah,
THE SON OF
the living Elohim."
And Yah'ushua continues:
Barcuh'd (pw blessed) art thou, Simon Bar Jonah: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but MY FATHER which is in shamayim (pw heaven).
ie. YHUH in shamayim has revealed his SON on earth to Peter - it is NOT YHUH on earth revealing himself as Yah'ushua in shamayim, or YHUH on earth saying he is Yah'ushua on earth while being in shamayim.
I pray that Yah'ushua will be manifest to you correctly. How is Yah'ushua manifested in the correct way to any believer?
In the same way He was revealed to Peter as shown above. Yah'ushua says it's when those believers accept his To'rah (law, commandments). Those who do not do his law and commandments, they will have another kind of manifestation - that of devils and man-made "church" system trinity theology, turning Yah'ushua into a blasphemous Godhead or HeadGod, some god who usurps YHUH and his law.
Here is the key to knowing the Son as the Son of YHUH:
Jn 14:21 HE THAT HATH MY COMMANDMENTS, AND KEEPETH THEM, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him,
and will MANIFEST myself to him.
I pray for the true manifestation of the Son of YHUH as you follow His commandments and love His Father who gave us To'rah (Gen-Rev) by the splendour (pw glory) he placed upon His people Israel, including the Jew (Yahudi), his own Son Yah'ushua.
Yah'ushua even knows who He worships (serves, obeys) as a Jew - He has no identity crisis, He knows The Shama as a YHUH-fearing Yahudi, he is not a pagan Samaritan like Simon Magus who had no idea what even the spirit of YHUH was about.
Yah'ushua speaking to the Samaritan woman
Jn 4:22 Ye worship ye know not what (idols-false gods): we know WHO* we worship: for salvation is of the Yahudim (hebrew for worshipper of Yahuah) (pagan translation has the term "Jews" - misleading)
*[pagan influence in KJV chooses "what" here instead of who - YHUH is not a “what” but a who, or else the sense is that the woman worships a what (object-idol, or doctrine) rather than the living Eloha himself.]
YHUH is Spirit and must be worshipped in truth, not as a man-god or a god-man or three-headed god, or shape-shifting eggshell-albumen-yolk (Jesus-God-Spirit) or Elohim (pw God) the ventriloquist with a Jesus puppet on Catholic strings, or a God who cannot decide if He is all-knowing or not, or a God who cannot add up (1+1+1=1)?, or a God who cannot decide if he is omnipresent or squeezed into the body of a man and into the restriction of time, or a God who talks to himself, flaggelates himself, puts himself to death, punishes himself, and raises himself up, forsakes himself, talks in riddles, pats himself on the back, says he is the Father when he really means he is the Son, says he is self-existent yet must be born. Says he consists of everything yet must receive something, says he is greater all-in-all yet subjects himself to himself, says he is to be worshipped but worships himself. Really???
Let's be true - YHUH is not the Elohim of confusion.
Jn 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in SPIRIT and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. 24 YHUH IS Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
Yah'ushua worships His Father, YHUH with us - He, Himself, is not YHUH.
Jn 15:1 I am the true vine, and my Father is the husbandman (farmer)
..........and we are the branches lets bear splendid fruit to the splendour of the Father.
Whilst you have brought up many points they have to be tested with the rest of scripture as I have tried to do.
Many attributes that Yah'ushua has been GIVEN by authority FROM YHUH have been used to make the claim that He is, in fact, YHUH himself, however, many of these attributes have been promised to us as well, and that certainly is no argument for us to claim we are YHUH, so why should the authority of pagans make such a claim for Yah'ushua and turn him into an idol?
Instead it is evident that we, by the power and chesed (pw grace) of Yahuah, can be YHUH-like (falsely called godly), or in His image, or of His nature (express image of his person (character), as Yah'ushua indeed is.
11 Peter 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all morally and ceremonially pure conversation (pw holy) and YHUH-LIKENESS (pw godliness),
11 Peter 1:6-7 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience YHUH-LIKENESS; 7 And to YHUH-LIKENESS brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness love (pw charity)
11 Peter 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and YHUH-LIKENESS, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to honour (pw glory) and virtue:
Titus 2:12 Teaching us that, denying UN-YHUH-LIKENESS and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and YHUH-LIKE, in this present world;
Titus 1:1 Paul, a servant of YHUH, and an apostle of Yah'ushua Messiah, according to the emunah (pw faith) of YHUH's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after YHUH-LIKENESS
1 Tim 2:2 For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all YHUH-LIKENESS and honesty. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of YHUH our Saviour.
Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away UN-YHUH-LIKENESS from Jacob:
1 Tim 6: 3 If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Master Yah'ushua Messiah, and to the doctrine which is according to YHUH-LIKENESS;
Many of these attributes that Yah'ushua received from his Father are promised for us too:
Purified soul (1 Peter 1:22)
Perfected love (1:Jn 4:12 Hebrews 10;14)
Man - image of YHUH (1 Cor 11:7)
body made honourable (pw glorified) (Phi 3:21)
Son/s of YHUH (Jn 1:12)
Born of the Spirit (Jn 3:8)
Born and begotten of YHUH (1 jn 5:18)
Filled with the Spirit (Eph 5:18)
Eph 3:19 "And to know the love of Messiah,
which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with
ALL THE FULNESS OF YHUH."
SO ELOHIM (pw GOD ) MUST FULLY DWELL WITHIN YOUR BODY AND SPIRIT
THAT DOES NOT MAKE YOU = ELOHIM (pw GOD)
and neither did it make Yah'ushua = ELOHIM
Yah'ushua is not Elohim but he is perfectly
LIKE him in character,
1 Jn 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of Elohim (pw God),
and it doth not yet appear what we shall be:
but we know that, when he shall appear,
we shall be like (homoios) him; for we shall see him as he is.
3664 homoios hom'-oy-os from the base of 3674; similar
(in appearance or character):--like, + manner. see GREEK for 3674
Yah'ushua is YHUH-like as we are aiming
to be through Yah's Ruach (Spirit)
