Introduction ___________________________In this teaching, we are going to evaluate the declarations made by (and of) Yahusha, the first born son of Yahuah through resurrection (of MANY more to come; each in our own order). We who are in The Yahushaic Covenant are “elohim potentials”; we are being trained in this life, perfected through suffering discipline as children of Yahuah, then made righteous to fulfill the Law through Mikveh, and finally risen divine and begotten. However, most of us “walk about in total darkness” to this reality! Yahuah expresses this to His future begotten “ones”:—– Psalm 82 —– 6 “The ‘gods’ know nothing, they understand nothing. They walk about in darkness; all the foundations of the earth are shaken. 6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”; you are all sons of the Most High.’ 7 But you will die like mere mortals; you will fall like every other ruler (not realizing your destiny to rule all of creation).” —–Religion has us all wallowing in insignificance, not realizing “who we are destined to be”! Self-appointed teachers filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah have us believing Yahusha was a God and not like us. Actually, Scripture clearly reveals that we are exactly like Yahusha was when he was human, and we will be exactly like Yahusha is now when we are resurrected in our own order. Yahusha is different in that he was the Forefather of Everlasting Life, the first ‘elohim potential’ (human being) to complete the process successfully and risen Divine by Yahuah. Yahusha is The Way for all of the other children to follow, he is not the exception!As in Adam (the man) all die, so also in the Second Adam (the man Yahusha) all (from first to last i.e. Yahusha is the covenant Isaiah 42:6, he is the first and last of the resurrection) shall be made alive through resurrection as we follow Yahusha our elder brother in the regeneration (Hebrews 19:28).—–1 Corinthians 15 —– 22 For as in Adam all die, so in (covenant with the) Messiah, all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order (turn): Yahusha the firstfruits (of eternal creation, the firstborn of the dead, he is the firstborn son); then at Yahusha’s coming (as the Bridegroom to receive the rest of us), those who belong to Yahusha (in covenant of Marriage, his Bride). —–
Was Yahusha different at all when he was human that the rest of us?We are taught that Yahusha was somehow “different” than the rest of us… using the “Virgin Birth” as “some kind of proof” that he was a demi-god. However, Scripture declares there is no difference between Yahusha when he was human (he was the future son of Yahuah, given the Spirit as an earnest guarantee when he was born again at his Mikveh) and you and I today… and there will be NO difference between us and Yahusha once we are resurrected! He was the son of Yahuah in “the days of his flesh” when he was but a human being (son of man), and we too are the children of Yahuah just like he was.—– 1 John 3 —– 1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of Yahuah (just like Yahusha was)! And that is what we are (children of Yahuah…we are JUST like Yahusha was, elohim potentials awaiting resurrection)! The reason the world does not know us (children of Yahuah) is that it did not know him (we are exactly the same). 2 Dear friends, now we are children of Yahuah, and what we will be (when we are begotten through resurrected) has not yet been made known. But we know that when Yahusha appears (to receive his Bride), we shall be like him (when we are begotten Divine through resurrection), for we shall see him as he is (in other words, when we see him we will be as he is). —–Sha’ul the Apostle made this crystal clear. That Yahusha was “made / created / born / manifested” exactly like us! And that is necessary because it takes a man, not a God, to break the Law of Sin and Death. Sha’ul clearly says “for this reason” in order to remove our fear of death, and give us comfort (the comforter) that we too can defeat death, Yahusha has to be made exactly like us… no difference what so ever. If he was some type of pagan demi-god, it simply didn’t count… the only way our fear of death can be removed, is if a man just like us walked The Way successfully and Yahuah forgave his sin, perfected him in Righteousness, and then granted him eternal life as a “god” after his death through resurrection.—– Hebrews 2:10-18 —– 10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that Yahuah, for whom and through whom everything exists, (Yahuah) should make the pioneer of their salvation (Yahusha) perfect through what he suffered (Yahusha was not born perfect or obedient Hebrews 5:8-9). 11 Both the one who makes people holy (Yahuah) and those who are made holy (Yahusha and all his brother/sisters) are of the same family (there is no difference between us and Yahusha). So Yahusha is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. … 14 Since the (rest of the) children (of Yahuah) have (come into being in) flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity (he too came into being “according to the flesh” 1 John 4:1–3) so that by his death (the death of a man not God) Yahusha might break the power of him who holds the power of death (defeat The Law of Sin and Death)—that is, the devil— 15 and free (all who now live by The Law of the Spirit of Life) those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death (we were held in slavery to the death decrees not The Law). 16 For surely it is not angels Yahusha helps (he is not and has never been an “angel” or “the Angel of Yahuah” who is Michael), but Abraham’s descendants (human beings of a specific bloodline). 17 For this reason (to remove our fear of death), he (Yahusha) had to be made like them (he was made human just like the rest of us), fully human in every way (doesn’t get any clearer than that), in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest (all High Priests are chosen from among men not gods… Hebrews 5:1) in service to Yahuah (he is not Yahuah in the flesh), and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people (as the fulfillment to the Zadok line of High Priest made through Phineas Numbers 25:13). 18 Because he himself suffered (discipline by his Father) when he was tempted (proof he was not Yahuah, Yahuah cannot be tempted by evil James 1:13), he is able to help those who are being tempted. —–Yahusha simply is not our God or any different than anyone else in the family of Yahuah, he is our brother. Yahuah is Yahusha’s God and Father in the same exact way. Yahuah is NOT Yahusha. We see below from the mouth of Yahusha himself, his relationship to Yahuah is no different that is ours.—– John 20:17 —– 17 Yahusha said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.’ ” —–Throughout the New Testament, we see the writers declare over and over again that Yahuah alone is the “God and Father” of Yahusha… Yahusha is NOT “God” or “The Father in the flesh” or “the Everlasting Father” that is a mistranslation.
He is the Forefather of Everlasting life the same way Abraham is called the “faith father” or “forefather of our faith”.
We see the writers declare the Shema, that Yahuah is THE GOD… period. Below are just a few examples, if you really “look” in the New Testament, you see these men of Yahuah openly declare The Shema that Yahuah is the ONE and ONLY GOD… and He is the Father of Yahusha…—– Ephesians 1:3 —– Praise be to (Yahuah) THE God and Father of our King Messiah Yahusha… 1 Peter 1:3 Praise be to (Yahuah) THE God and Father of our King Messiah Yahusha! —–—– John 17:3 —– Now this is eternal life: that they know you (Yahuah), the ONLY TRUE God, and (come to You through) Yahusha who is the Messiah (not god), whom you have sent (in fulfillment of Your promises as foretold through the prophets to be the Mediator). —–—– 1 Timothy 2:5 —– For there is ONE God (Yahuah… period) and one mediator between Yahuah and mankind, the man (not god) Yahusha the Messiah —–We see that we are all “sons of God”, and that we are exactly like Yahusha before he was resurrected, and we will be exactly as he is now after we are resurrected (each in our own order after the firstborn son). He is our brother not our God, and Yahuah is the God and Father of us all! Yahuah is begetting a family, that is His “purpose”.
The Nazarene CreedYahusha is the “Notsri” or “Branch”. He was called Yahusha the Nazarene because that is what all followers of John the Baptist (who started the Sect of the Nazarenes as an offshoot of the Essenes). John was prophesied to “make straight the way of the Messiah” and teach the Messiah The Way of Salvation through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering. So John was preparing the way for the Branch, and those who followed John were called “Nazarenes” which means “followers of the Branch”. John announced that he was not “the Branch”, and then declared Yahusha “the Branch”. All the Nazarenes then followed Yahusha and John was murdered for being their leader. A fate Yahusha then Sha’ul would face as Leaders of The Nazarenes.So let us simply list the declarations made by The Nazarene or made of him by his followers. Then I will demonstrate that each and every one of these declarations apply to all of the children of Yahuah. This is literally the declaration of our birthright and it belongs to all of us! It is The Nazarene Creed:
- known by Yahuah before the foundation of the world
- the son of man
- came into being/born “according to the flesh”; begotten “according to the Spirit”
- fulfilled the Righteous requirements of The Law
- embody the fullness of deity in human form
- the image of the Almighty God
- the son of God
- eternal priest in the order of Zadok
- King in the order of Melchizedek
- one with the Father
- set apart during earthly life by the Ruach
- a Righteous Judge over the Nations
- demonstrated The Way by our life example
- brought a living sacrifice, a perfect Lamb on Passover
- defeated The Law of Sin and Death, through resurrection
- have the authority to forgive sin
That is The Nazarene Creed!
All Nazarenes have this Birthright and should boldly declare that they are sons of Yahuah, just like Yahusha did. Yahusha never claimed to be Yahuah, or even equal to Yahuah. In fact, he said he would not even conceive of such blasphemy! We all are to have the same “mind” in us, that was in Yahusha, who denied incarnation outright:—– Philippians 2 —– 5 Let this mind be in you (that Yahuah alone is the ONLY true God John 17:3) which was also in Yahusha the Messiah, 6 who, being in the form (human image) of Yahuah (we are all made in the image of Yahuah Genesis 1:27), 6 who, although Yahusha existed in the (human) form (image) of Yahuah (his Father; as all sons are images of their fathers), did not regard equality with Yahuah a thing to be grasped (Yahusha could not even wrap his mind around such blasphemy; he thought it robbing Yahuah of His Glory), 7 but made himself of no reputation (although he was born King of Israel and the Jews were trying to make him the Messiah ben David i.e. Conquering King, and he had inherited a King’s Ransom from Daniel), he instead assumed the form (role) of the suffering servant (Messiah ben Joseph to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll and the Feast Cycle), and coming into being as human (according to the flesh i.e. born human outside of any Divine intervention Romans 1:1-6). 8 And being found in the likness of a man (just like we all are found in the likeness of a man 1 Cor. 15:29), He humbled himself (before Yahuah) and became obedient (to the will of Yahuah that he must first come as Messiah ben Joseph the suffering servant and purchase the life of his brothers John 15:13, and fulfill his adoption covenant with Yahuah made in Zachariah Chapter 3) to the point of death, even the death of the stake (as foretold in The Heavenly Scroll, where Yahusha is portrayed as crucified, a Lamb that is slaughtered). 9 Therefore (because Yahusha fulfilled the adoption covenant in Zachariah Chapter 3 and The Heavenly Scroll) Yahuah also has highly exalted Yahusha ( with the Glory he had before the wold was John 17:5 as foretold in The Heavenly Scroll that Leo the Lion of the Tribe of Judah defeats Daco the dragon, then reigns as King) and (Yahuah) has given Yahusha (upon resurrection) the name which is above every name (Melchizedek, which he inherited through human bloodlines Hebrews 1:4), 10 that at the name of Yahusha every knee should bow (in respect to authority as he is our King; not divine worship), of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess (Strongs #3670, homologeo, enters into a marriage covenant) that Yahusha the Messiah is our King, to the glory of Yahuah the Father (Hebrews 1:3 Yahusha is the Glory of Yahuah and that Glory was written into the stars on Day 4 Psalms 19). —–So Yahusha denied even being able to contemplate this idea that “Yahuah IS Yahusha” and that is the mind that should be in each of us. All those who have this same “mind”, will be given the right to become children of Yahuah—– John 1:12 —– Yet to all who did receive Yahusha as the Messiah, to those who believed in (the covenant that bears) his name, he gave the right to become children of Yahuah. —–
Scriptual Support for The Nazarene Creed… __________________________Now let’s take a journey into Scriptural Truth, rarely taught today by our self appointed teachers who are filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah.
We all were known by Yahuah before the foundation of the world ___________________________We are taught that Yahusha “pre-existed” and was God before his human birth based on a sound bite of:—– 1 Peter 1:20 —– He was chosen (in the Plan of Yahuah the “debar” Brown Driver Briggs definition ‘word of God, as a divine communication in the form of commandments, prophecy, and words of help to his people, used 394 times.) before the creation of the world (Yahuah’s Plan/Debar was the Light of Gen. 1:1 to beget a family, that Plan was written in The Heavenly Scroll on Day 4 as David proclaims in Psalms 19 and foretells of Yahusha’s life), but was revealed (born/created/manifested and fulfilled) in these last times (the 4th prophetic day at the fullness of time to fulfill the Prophets) for your sake (to fulfill The Plan of Salvation John Chapter 1). —-However, if we put this verse back into context, we see Peter clarify that Yahusha was the “firstborn of the dead” and glorified AFTER and through his resurrection, we just need to keep reading and stop taking Scripture out of contex to imply what we want to believe…—–1 Peter 1 —– 21 Through (Marriage) covenant with Yahusha, you believe in Yahuah (as your Father through adoption John 1:12), Yahuah raised Yahusha from the dead and glorified him (Yahusha was not a god, he was a mortal man who died. He could not raise himself, and he was not glorified until after his resurrection); and so your faith and hope are in Yahuah (to raise you from the dead as well) —–Scripture declares that we all pre-existed in the exact same way Yahusha did… in the debar/word/Plan of Yahuah.—– Ephesians 1 —– 3 Blessed be THE God (Shema) and Father of our Master Messiah Yahusha (Yahuah was his ‘God and Father’ too, just like Yahuah is ours), who has blessed us in covenant with Yahusha with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms (we are co-heirs with our brother Romans 8:17). 4 For He chose us (just like He did Yahusha 1 Peter 1:20) to be in The Yahushaic Covenant before the foundation of the world (in the debar/word/Plan of Yahuah to beget a family, just like He did Yahusha) that we would be holy and blameless (without spot or blemish; as we too are Passover Lambs 2 Peter 3:14) in Yahuah’s presence. In love 5 He predestined us (in The Plan of Salvation before the world was the Light of Gen. 1:1) for adoption (we are in an adoption covenant with Yahuah, not a marriage covenant) as His sons in (-law, through a Marriage) covenant with Yahusha the Messiah (who is the Bridegroom), according to the good pleasure of Yahuah’s will (to beget a family) —–—– Romans 8 —– 28 And we know that Yahuah works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose (or Plan to beget a family, the Light of Gen. 1:1). 29 For those Yahuah foreknew (before the world was), He also predestined (in the Plan of Salvation) to be conformed to the image of His Son, so that Yahusha (would not be the “only son”, but) would be the firstborn among many brothers (Yahusha is the “only begotten at this point” son). 30 And those Yahuah predestined He also called (out and set apart with His Ruach when we are born again), those He called (out) He also justified (in covenant with Yahusha), those He justified (in The Yahushaic Covenant) He also glorified (upon resurrection just like He did Yahusha) —–

So ALL Nazarenes were “known before the foundation of the world” not just Yahusha. That does not mean we literally pre-existed in some physical form, it means we were pre-destined in The Plan of Salvation, and it was by that Plan/Debar/Word that was with Yahuah in the beginning, that all things were done in creation. The REAL meaning of John Chapter 1. The Hebraic mindset of “pre-existence” has always been in the mind/will/purpose of Yahuah.
We are all the son of man ___________________________The phrase “son of man” means human being. Many are called “the son of man” in scripture not just Yahusha. But all who are called “the son of man” are 100% human, including Yahusha. The Son of Man as it applies to Yahusha does have a dual meaning, as Yahusha is the fulfillment of the Constellation Orion in The Heavenly Scroll which is called The Son of Man. But for the sake of our Nazarene Creed, we will stick with the basic meaning… “human being”.
We all came into being according to the flesh ___________________________“According to the flesh” is an idiom for being born human to two parents. This phrase is used often in scripture both to define Yahusha’s humanity, and to prove it means 100% human! We see below that anyone who denies that Yahusha was “merely of human origin, natural or physical origin, with no Divine influence/Spiritual seed” is a deceiver filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah:—– 2 John 1:7 —– For many deceivers are entered into the world, that do not confess that Yahusha the Messiah is come in the flesh (g4561 ‘sarki’ physical origin only, outside of any Divine influence). This is a deceiver and an antichrist. —–We see that this word “flesh” … means natural/physical origin (not Spiritual), born of natural origin ONLY, mere human/natural birth only… APART FROM DIVINE INFLUENCE…G4563 – Thayer: 2 a) the body of a man 2b) used of natural or physical origin, generation or relationship 2b1) born of natural generation 4) the flesh, denotes mere human nature, the earthly nature of man apart from divine influence, and therefore prone to sin and opposed to God.
Yahusha was born 100% human/0% Divine “according to the flesh”, then begotten 0% human/100% Divine upon resurrection “according to the Spirit”.
—– Romans 1 —– 2 which Yahuah promised beforehand through His prophets in the Holy Scriptures (he was foretold, predetermined, predestined… did not pre-exist), 3 regarding His Son, who was a descendant of David according to flesh (g4561 ‘sarki’ physical origin only, outside of any Divine influence), 4 and who through the Spirit of holiness was declared with power to be the Son of God by His resurrection from the dead: Yahusha the Messiah —–“According to the Spirit” is the opposite of “according to the flesh” as those born into the Kingdom of Yahuah are resurrected with no “flesh and bones”.—– 1 Corinthians 15 —– 49 And just as we have born the likeness of the earthly man, so also shall we bear the likeness of the heavenly man. 50 Now I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Yahuah, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. —–We see above that we ALL came “in the likeness of man”, which is the same phrase used of Yahusha:—– Philippians 2:7 —– but emptied himself (of his right to the throne, Messiah ben David), by taking the form of a suffering servant (to fulfill the role of Messiah ben Joseph), being born in the likeness of men. —–
We all fulfilled the Righteous requirements of The Law ___________________________Yahusha came to show us “The Way” that we too can, as he did, “fulfill all righteousness” required by the Law through Mikveh. This is why Yahusha told John he HAD to be Mikveh’d, to “fulfill all righteousness” in him before he could serve as High Priest. That is how Yahusha “fulfilled the Law”! Yahusha knew that Yahuah had established a “path” whereby a human being could be perfected in righteous obedience through living water:—- Matthew 3 —– 15 Yahusha replied, “You must Mikveh me now; it is proper for us to do this to fulfill all righteousness (in me).” Then John consented (understanding Yahuah must forgive his sin before becoming High Priest). 16 As soon as Yahusha was Mikveh’d, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of Yahuah (poured out on him Zechariah 13:1) descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.” —–This is when Yahusha became “the son of Yahuah” upon his rebirth, not his human birth! Very few people realize that what happened to Yahusha when he was Mikveh’d by John was the fulfillment of Yahuah’s promise; where we would be Mikveh’d clean and the righteous requirements of the Law would be fulfilled in each of us, then Yahuah would pour our His Spirit. This is exactly what happened to Yahusha!—– Zechariah 13:1 —– “In that day (speaking of the Renewed Covenant) there shall be a fountain (of Living Water) opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem (to Mikveh) for sin and for uncleanness (this is the purpose of John performing the Mikveh on Yahuah! John had no other commission).” I will pour My Spirit upon your offspring (Yahusha was the first human to be born again in fulfillment of this prophecy as he was Mikveh’d and the Spirit was poured out over him), and My blessing (of eternal life) on your descendants. —–We, by following that Righteous Path called “The Way” that Yahusha set, also fulfill the righteous requirements of The Law:—– Romans 8 —– 3 For what the Law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the flesh, Yahuah did by sending His own Son in likeness of sinful man (a sinful human being to show us The Way), as an offering for sin (as he was given authority to make atonement as a Zadok Priest). He thus condemned sin in the flesh (by being Mikveh’d clean and walking with no sin as High Priest, and thereby dying innocent in the eyes of The Law), 4 so that the righteous standard of the Law might be fulfilled in us (too), who do not live according to the flesh but according to the Spirit (follow Yahusha’s example of Mikveh, Circumcision, Offering). —–So we too must “fulfill the Righteous requirements of The Law” through Mikveh just like Yahusha did.
Most people believe that Yahusha was “a living Torah”. That is the pagan concept of Logos!
Yahusha was the Plan of Yahuah (debar) written in The Heavenly Scroll fulfilled. He was not born perfect, nor did he always walk in perfect obedience. So he was not a “Living Torah” or Logos…—– Hebrews 5:8-9 —– 8 though he was a Son (and Yahuah disciplines all His sons Hebrews 12, Proverbs 3:12), yet he learned obedience (to Yahuah) by the things (discipline) which he suffered (for disobedience). 9 And having been perfected, he (after being perfected) became (The Way) the author of eternal salvation to all who obey him (and follow in his footsteps of being perfected through discipline for disobedience unto Mikveh’d to fulfill the Law), —–We see above that Yahusha was a child of Yahuah, and Yahuah disciplines ALL His children with Divine Discipline to perfect them in Righteous Obedience.—– Hebrews 6 —– 5 And have you forgotten the encouraging words Yahauh spoke to you as his children? He said, “My child, don’t make light of the Yahuah’s discipline, and don’t give up when he corrects you. 6 For Yahuah disciplines those he loves (and He loves Yahusha), and he punishes each one he accepts as his child (and He accepted Yahusha as His son upon Mikveh).” 7 As you endure this divine discipline, remember that Yahuah is treating you as His own children. Who ever heard of a child who is never disciplined by its father (this includes Yahusha the SON)? 8 If Yahuah doesn’t discipline you as He does all of His children, it means that you are illegitimate and are not really His children at all (Yahusha is NOT the exception, he is the rule/Way). —–We want to say that Yahusha is the son of God… then we turn around and say nothing applies to Yahusha as a son!• Mikveh is to wash away sin and uncleanliness… oh but that doesn’t apply to Yahusha! • Yahuah disciplines all His sons, the ones He loves to prefect them in obedience… oh but that doesn’t apply to Yahusha. • We are all born human according to the flesh outside of any Divine Influence or “Spiritual Seed”… oh but that doesn’t apply to Yahusha. • We are all known before the foundation of the world, chosen by Yahuah in the Plan of Salvation… oh but that doesn’t apply to Yahusha…Says who? The deceiving Spirit of Incarnation is who says. Yahusha is The Way, he is not the exception to every rule, to every law, because he was some kind of demi-god above it all. If that is true, that he was a pre-existing demi-god, then the Plan of Salvation has failed, and we remain dead in our sin.
We all embody the fullness of deity in human form ___________________________We are taught that “Yahusha IS Yahuah, who came to earth in bodily form” based on this out of context sound bite:—– Colossians 2:9 —– For in Yahusha all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form (Yahusha was filled with the Spirit of Yahuah upon Mikveh in fulfillment of Zechariah 13:1). —–What we are NOT taught, is that the same writer said we ALL have the potential to embody the fullness of deity in our bodies when we too are Mikveh’d by Fire!—– Ephesians 3:19 —– 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled (in bodily form) to the measure of all the fullness of God (which is the Spirit of Yahuah who promises to pour out His Spirit on us Zechariah 13:1 like He did Yahusha when he was Mikveh’d).—–So, like Yahusha, who was filled with the Spirit upon Mikveh and then “embodied the fullness of deity”, we all are filled to the fullest measure in our body of the Spirit of Yahuah (deity). This is called being born again Spiritually through Mikveh and fire!
For more information on Mikveh with Living Water and Fire click here.
We all are the image of the Almighty God ___________________________All the sons of Yahuah were created in the image of Almighty Elohim (Yahuah). It is blasphemy to remake Yahuah into our own image (saying Yahuah IS Yahusha) because Yahuah is immortal invisible Spirit, not mortal visible man! He created us to be like Him, not the other way around.We know that Yahusha is NOT Yahuah, he is the perfected human image of the invisible Elohim who is Spirit not flesh. Below I replace all the passive voice references to “him” with the proper names IN CONTEXT to clarify what is being said:—– Colossians 1 —– 14 in (covenant with) Yahusha, we have redemption (back to Yahuah as adopted children), the forgiveness of sins (the death decrees are taken out of the way). 15 The Son is the (perfected human) image of the invisible Elohim Yahuah, Yahusha is the firstborn over all (eternal) creation (firstborn of the dead, first of the eternal fruits of the resurrection). 16 For Yahusha all things were created (by Yahuah as an inheritance), things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through (the debar/Plan of) Yahuah and for Yahusha (as the firstborn son of Yahuah) —–—– Genesis 1:27 —– So Yahuah created mankind in His own image, in the image of Elohim He created them; male and female He created them. —–We are to be conformed to His Image… NOT make Him conform to ours; saying He came to Earth as a man and then we killed “God”. That is ridiculous! Yahuah is immortal and cannot be killed, and invisible and cannot be seen, and Spirit and cannot be found in the image of a man! Yahuah made a double oath that He would never come to Earth as a man.—– Numbers 23:19 —– 19 Yahuah is not a man, that He should lie, neither the “Son of Man” (Yahusha was called the Son of man 87 times), that He should repent (and was baptized for repentance by John): Has He said (declared an oath), and will He not do it (never come as a man oath #1)? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good (on this promise oath #2)? —–
We are all ‘god’ and we are all the son of God ___________________________Yahusha claimed these titles based on Psalm 82:6, which says WE ALL are gods, sons of Yahuah! So that birthright is ours too!—– John 10:34-36 —– 34 Yahusha answered them, “Is it not written in your Law (Psalms 82:6), ‘I said, you are gods’? 35 If he called them gods to whom the word of Yahuah came—and Scripture cannot be broken (it applies to all of us)— 36 do you say of him whom the Father consecrated (as High Priest Zachariah Chapter 3) and sent into the world (to show us The Way, just like God sent John into the world 1 John 1:6), ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? —–We all can claim that same birthright per Psalms 82:6 because Scripture cannot be broken!—–Psalm 82 —– 6 I have said, Ye are (all) gods; and all of you are children of the most High. —–We see below, that we are just like Yahusha in every way.—– 1 John 3 —– 1 See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of Yahuah (just like Yahusha)! And that is what we are (we are JUST like Yahusha was, elohim potentials awaiting resurrection)! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him (we are exactly the same). 2 Dear friends, now we are children of Yahuah, and what we will be (when we are resurrected) has not yet been made known. But we know that when Yahusha appears (to receive his Bride), we shall be like him (when we are begotten Divine through resurrection), for we shall see him as he is (in other words, when we see him we will be as he is). —–
We are all eternal priests and Kings in the order of Melchizedek ___________________________Yahusha claim to Melchizedek was through human bloodlines as he inherited the throne of David through his father Yahseph, and the office of Zadok High Priest through his mother Miriam. See my book Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb for more on this.All who enter into The Yahushaic Covenant are begotten divine through resurrection and seated as eternal Kings under the authority of The King of Kings, and priests under the authority of our High Priest in the order of Zadok… So we all will inherit the title “Melchi (King) Zedek (Zadok Priest)…—– Revelation 5:10 —– You have made them to be a kingdom and priests to serve our Elohim, and they will reign (as Kings) on the earth.” —–We see that we rule under the authority of the King of Kings—–Revelation 1 —– 5 and from Yahusha the Messiah, the faithful witness (of Yahuah NOT Yahuah), the firstborn from the dead (eternal creation NOT physical creation), and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has released us from our sins by his blood, 6 who has made us to be a kingdom, priests to his God and Father (he is not Yahuah, Yahuah is his God and Father too!) — to Yahuah be the glory and power forever and ever! —–
The Spirit of Yahuah descended upon me upon Mikveh ___________________________Yahusha was given an earnest guarantee of his future birth into the Kingdom upon his Mikveh, as the Spirit of Yahuah “filled” Yahusha to it full measure. We too are given that same earnest guarantee upon our Mikveh (if done properly).—– Ephesians 1:14 —– who is a deposit (the Ruach) guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are Yahuah’s possession–to the praise of his glory. —–—– 2 Corinthians 1:22 —– set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come (our future birth as begotten sons through resurrection just like Yahusha the firstborn of the dead). —This is exactly what we see happen to Yahusha when he was Mikveh’d by John! It was the fulfillment of the promised new covenant…—–Zechariah 13:1 —– In that day (speaking of the Renewed Covenant) there shall be a fountain (of Living Water) opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem (to Mikveh) for sin and for uncleanness (this is the purpose of John performing the Mikveh on Yahuah! To fulfill the Law).” I will pour My Spirit upon your offspring (Yahusha was the first human to be born again in fulfillment of this prophecy as he was Mikveh’d and the Spirit was poured out over him and per Jeremiah 31 write My law on their hearts circumcising our hearts so we see Mikveh and circumcision), and My blessing (of eternal life) on your descendants.—–
We are all “one” with the Father __________________________Yahusha said—– John 10 —– 30 I and my Father are one. ––Those filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah twist this scripture, sound bite it, and then claim Yahuah IS Yahusha in ERROR! Let us not make that mistake here. Let’s put it right back into context where Yahusha define what he means, and that we ALL are ONE with Yahuah in covenant!—– John 17:19-21 —– 17 “And for their sakes I sanctify myself (through the Truth), that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word (enter into The Yahushaic Covenant); That they all may be one (family); as thou, Father, art in (an adoption covenant with) me, and I in (covenant with) thee (to be Your son), that they also may be one in (covenant with) us (to be adopted as children too): that the world may believe that thou hast sent me (as The Covenant to the Nations… Isaiah 42:6).” —-
We are all set apart during my earthly life ___________________________We read that Yahuah sent His Ruach to “come over (not into) Miram” to set the child apart from birth. This is the same thing that happed to Sampson and John the Baptist. Both “Nazarites” or “set apart for Yahuah” from birth. But we all are “set apart” by the Ruach coming over us at some point in our lives when we are Mikveh’d by Fire.—– 1 Peter 1 —– 5 But just as Yahuah who called you is holy (set apart), so be holy (set apart) in all you do, 16 for it is written: “Be holy, because I am holy.” 17 Since you call on a Father who judges each man’s work impartially, live your lives in reverent fear during your temporary stay on earth —–
We are all Righteous Judges over the Nations ___________________________—–1 Corinthians 6 —– 1 Dare any of you, having a matter against another, go to (a court of) law before the unrighteous (those who do not keep The Law of Yahuah), and not before the saints? 2 Do you not know that the saints will judge the nations?
We all must demonstrate The Way by example of our life ___________________________Yahusha came to show us “The Way” of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering. We are to “walk as he walked” and enter through The Narrow Gate.—– Ephesians 5 —– 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the body and gave himself up for her (as the Passover Lamb) 26 to make her holy, (ritually) cleansing her by the washing with (living) water (Mikveh), through the commandments (circumcision of heart) 27 and to present her (properly) to himself as a radiant assembly, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish (as spotless Passover Lambs of Yahuah), but holy and blameless. —–
We are to walk that same path of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering ___________________________—–1 John 2:6 —– whoever says he abides in (covenant with) him (Yahusha) ought to walk in the same way in which he walked (and set the same example with our lives). —–—– John 10:3-4 —– For I have given you an example (Spiritual Path), that you should do as I have done (offer our own lives as living sacrificial lambs on Passover). —–—– Hebrews 10:22 —– Let us draw near to (the Altar of) Yahuah (properly presenting ourselves) with a sincere heart (true circumcision) and with the full assurance that faith (in the example set by Yahusha) brings (… that we can offer our own lives as living sacrifices because Yahusha has torn the veil in two, giving us access to the mercy seat of Yahuah), having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience (the spiritual equivalent of the Red Heifer) and having our bodies washed with pure (living) water (Mikveh). —–
We all must bring our life as a living sacrifice, a perfect Lamb on Passover ___________________________We see that in the physical shadow in the Tanakh, each one of us were to bring our own Passover Lamb to the alter:—– Exodus 12 —– 1 the Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread 12 Yahuah said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt, 2 “This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of your year. 3 Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family —–This is fulfilled in The Yahushaic Covenant, whereby each of us give our lives as a living sacrifice on Passover:—– Romans 12:1 —– Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of Yahuah’s mercy (to save you from death like Yahusha), to offer your (sinful human) bodies as a living sacrifice (Spiritual Spotless Lambs of Yahuah on Passover), holy and pleasing to Yahuah–this is your true and proper worship (on Passover). —–For more information on this, see my book The Narrow Gate!
We all defeat The Law of Sin and Death, through resurrection __________________________Yahusha was the first human perfected in Righteous Obedience through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering, and therefore died innocent the perfected sacrifice. In doing so, death is the penalty of sin and cannot hold one who has been perfected! So Yahusha therefore defeated death. We, in following that same path called The Way will defeat death the same exact way, through Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering.For more information click here.—– 1 Corinthians 15 —– 20 But now the Messiah is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man (Adam) came death, by Man (not God) also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in (one human) Adam all die, even so in (one human), the Messiah, all (the sons of Yahuah from the first to the last) shall be made alive (begotten by Yahuah as sons through resurrection). 23 But each one (of the sons of Yahuah) in his own order (after Yahusha, the eldest son): The Messiah the first fruits (first of the sons to be resurrected), afterward those who are the Messiah’s at his coming (first resurrection when the rest of the sons will be begotten).—–More info, see my book The Narrow Gate.
We all have the authority to forgive sin ___________________________Those filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah claim that Yahusha is “God” because he forgave sin. They, of course, fail to tell us that we too have that authority. Does not make us “Yahuah”, it makes us sons of Yahuah who will govern His creation. Forgiveness of sin is a delegated right to the Righteous Judges among us… which are VERY FEW and far between. Most are self-righteous abominations to Yahuah in the way they twist His Torah, and judge others by “sight” not “eyes to see” the intent of the heart.—– John 20 —– 21 So Yahusha said to them again, “Peace to you! As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” 22 And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained.” —–
Conclusion ___________________________I am a Nazarene! Filled with the Spirit of Yahuah, which cries out Abba Father as I am His son with all that implies! I (and all the true children of Yahuah) are the son of Yahuah in every way Yahusha is, as he is our brother, the firstborn! Let the Spirit of the False Messiah blaspheme that Spirit of Adoption, and deceive all those who are perishing; to be blind to the birthright that belongs to all those who are in PROPER covenant!To understand the full context of your own birthright, you must understand The Yahushaic Covenant…. I break down the covenant we are under in detail, overcoming incarnation with the truth and showing us all that we too are everything Yahusha claimed to be as a son of Yahuah!Click here for a free copy!
