The Unskilled or Unqualified judge

The Unskilled or Unqualified Judge
by Rav Sha’ul

Now we are going to sink our teeth into deep “meat” of His Word and spiritually mature doctrines.

We are all called to be trained as Righteous Judges.  I say “trained” because no one is immediately appointed to the role and most never reach that level of maturity in His Law.  Trained is the key word… and that training takes a lifetime and few ever reach that point of maturity where they are appointed by Yahuah as a judge.

We are now going to address the qualifications and qualities of aRighteous Judge vs. Unrighteous or Untrained judge.  This is a very important topic.  We need to understand and address the division and contention that is caused by unqualified immature judges in the assembly today. The ‘Unrighteous Judge’  and the ‘Untrained Immature Judge’ are those not appointed by Yahuah as a judge over His Law.   They are the ones who judge by the letter not the intent.  These unqualified judges elevate themselves (self appointed) over everyone else and judge by the letter of the  Law.  In doing so these immature ‘children in the faith’ become not a doer of The Law but a Judge over The Law… a very dangerous role to play. Below is James 4:11 with my comments inserted to shed light on this scripture in context.James 4:11Do not speak evil against one another, brothers (by using your own personal standards or the letter of the Law without understanding intent in judgement).  The one who speaks against a brother or(unrighteouslyjudges his brother,  speaks evil against the Law (because the Law is spiritually appraised by intent not the letter) and judges the Law (unfairly).  But if you judge the Law (by the letter not intent), you are not a (righteous seeking) doer of the Law but a (untrained) judge (addicted to the mild of the word which is the letter of the Law).

All those who step outside of Yahuah appointing them a judge and judges another brother by the letter without knowing intent “speaks evil agsinst the Law!  The Law is spirituall appraised not by the letter but by intent.  Actually very few people are ever found mature enough in understandingintent and appointed a judge by Yahuah.  Yahusha addressed the truth that we are to judge, but taking that responsibility has many pitfalls because it is reserved for most mature in Yahuah.  I want to be clear because we are taught the false doctrine that “thou shalt not judge”.  Please read:

This false doctrine that we are not to judge at all “Thou Shalt Not Judge” is a sound bite doctrine taken from Yahusha’s own words in Matthew Chapter 7.  Let us look closer at this scripture in context.  We are in fact taught by Yahusha that we are to judge by The Spiritual Intent of the Torah alone (true righteousness) so that our judgment will stand. Below is the scripture in context with my comments:Matthew 7
1 “Judge not (self righteously), that you be not judged (by others self righteousness). For with what judgment you judge (it doesn’t say not to judge this is a warning), you will be judged; and with the measure you use (letter or intent), it will be measured back to you (this is saying to judge fairly and just by The Law of Yahuah alone based on Spiritual Intent not the letter). 3And why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye (first judge your own life by The Law)? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me remove the speck from your eye’; and look, a plank is in your own eye? 5Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly (keep the Law to develop “eyes to see” Spiritual Intent) to remove the speck from your brother’s eye (Yahusha is warning us that most people who judge are hypocrites and not qualified to judge the Law of Yahuah by intent.  Most are untrained in Spiritual Intent).Now Yahusha restates what he just said in a parable (physical to spiritual parallel)“Do not give what is holy to the dogs; nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and again and render you.”

What Yahusha is saying (using metaphors to veil the Kingdom as always) is this:

“Judge not self righteously, that you not be unrighteously judged in return.  Evaluate your own life in context of The Law and study it from the standpoint of intent before you are qualified to judge your brother.  Properly judge between that which is “holy” and “dogs”, “pearls” and “swine” defined in The Law of Yahuah through intent… if you don’t judge properly by the Righteous Intent of  His Law, your poor self righteous ‘by the letter’ judgment will not stand (be trampled under their feet) and self righteous judgment will be turned against you and Yahuah will heap your unrighteousness back onto your head and judge YOU in return by the letter i.e. the same measure you used to judge others.”

Yahusha’s warning is extremely important as he warned us not to judge at all if we have a “plank” in our own eye.  That “plank” in everyone’s eye is the lack of understanding the “righteous intent” behind the letter of the Law.  He is speaking of those unqualified spiritually immature children of Yahuah who have yet matured in their Spirit.  The Apostle Paul addresses this same thing below:Galatians 6 – Complete Jewish Bible
1 Brothers, suppose someone is caught doing something wrong (breaking the letter of the Law). You who have the Spirit (of the Law … those qualified to judge intent) should set him right, but in a spirit of humility, keeping an eye on yourselves so that you won’t be tempted too (because if we misjudge, the same standard we use will be used against us). Bear one another’s burdens (do not disguise condemnation as judgment) — in this way you will be fulfilling the Torah’s true meaning, which the Messiah upholds. For if anyone thinks he is something (like a judge) when he is really nothing (but a spiritually immature child a slave to the letter of the Law), is fooling himself. So let each of you scrutinize his own actions (in light of Spiritual Intent and not appoint  ourselves judges). Then if you do find something to boast about (that you have matured in your understanding of intent over the letter), at least the boasting will be based on what you have actually done (achieved maturity and liberty) and not merely on a judgment that you are better than someone else (by pointing out their sin based on the letter of the Law.that is what the spiritually immature do, they judge everyone by the letter to make themselves appear more righteous); for each person will carry his own load (maturity and liberty and growth is personal between each believer and our Father). But whoever (the immature child who is learning spiritual maturity by keeping the letter of the Law) is being instructed in the Word (by the more mature appointed elders and anointed teachers) should share all the good things he has with his instructor (not go about judging his instructor for the instructor’s liberty). Don’t delude yourselves (that you are qualified to judge just because you are now keeping the letter of the Law): no one makes a fool of Yahuah (judges are appointed by Yahuah)! A person reaps what he sows (if you judge by the letter you will be judged by the letter). Those who keep sowing in the field of their old nature (a slave to the letter of the Law), in order to meet its (the Laws) demands, will eventually reap ruin (because the Law is spiritually discerned1 Corinthians 2:14); but those who keep sowing in the field of the Spirit (seek the spiritual intent of the Law through obedience to the letter) will reap from the Spirit everlasting life (because the Law is designed to produce spiritually perfection through intent). So let us not grow weary of doing what is good  (keeping the letter of the Law); for if we don’t give up (and seek the meaning or intent of The Law), we will in due time reap the harvest (the harvest he is speaking of here is spiritual maturity and liberty.  It takes many years of obedience to the letter of the Law to develop spiritual maturity). 10 Therefore, as the opportunity arises, let us (who are spiritually immature) do what is good to everyone (not going about judging everyone by the letter), and especially to the family of those who are trustingly faithful (we should instead of setting about to judge everyone we should be out feeding the poor and taking care of the widows and orphans.  That… the spiritually immature CAN do… because they are not yet qualified to work as Righteous Judges or Anointed as Teachers.  Those are appointed positions by Yahuah and takes many years to achieve.)

So what Paul is talking about in Galatians 6 is unqualified judges and how they should remain silent and not assume the role of a judge but instead continue on in the letter of the Law in obedience until they reap the harvest of that obedience which is maturity in the Spirit.  Until that time, they should do other types of good work such as attending to widows and orphans.  Being a teacher or a judge is an appointed position reserved for the most mature. 

Paul talks about this again in 1 Corinthians 2 below:1 Corinthians 213 which things we also speak, not in words (of the Law) taught by human wisdom (the letter of the Law), but in those (words of the Law) taught by the Spirit (of Holiness which teaches us the intent behind these words), combining spiritual thoughts (our intent) with spiritual words (Yahuah’s intent behind the letter). 14 But a natural man (again speaking of the spiritually immature addicted to milk or the letter of the Law) does not accept the things of the Spirit of Yahuah (for they are still infants in maturity), for they (the spiritually discerned intent of the letter of the Law) are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them (being just a child in maturity), because they are spiritually appraised. 15But he who is spiritual (a mature appointed son who understands spiritual intent of the Law) appraises all things, yet he himself is appraised by no one.…

What we see both Yahusha and the Apostle Paul addressing the immature children of Yahuah who simply are not qualified yet to judge anyone.   Paul says in Galatians 6 verse 1 is “those who have the spirit” should set them right in a spirit of humility.  Paul is speaking to the spiritually mature son who has had his spiritual senses trained by years of obedience to the letter of the Law.  Paul again warns us that spiritual maturity takes years of living in obedience to the letter of the Law.  Only the most mature sons are qualified to judge once appointed to that position by Yahuah.  The rest of us are in training and should hold our tongue.Galatians 4 1 What I am saying is that as long as an heir is spiritually immature, he is no different from a slave (to the letter of The Law), although he owns the whole estate. 2 The heir is subject to guardians and tutors (the letter of The Law, teachers, and mature eldersuntil the time set by his father (that the child addicted to milk becomes a full mature son capable of solid food and understands spiritual intent of the Law).

So everyone starts out as a very spiritually immature child at the time they realize the Law is not done away with.  But yet, as soon as we bring the Law into our lives, we immediately think we are qualified to go out and judge others by the letter of the Law. 

There are 4 types of “judges” defined in scripture:

1.     The Unrighteous Judge

2.     The immature (unskilled) Judge

3.     The Gossip or Rebellious Judge

4.     The Mature Righteous Judge

We all (whether we want to admit it or not) have fallen into the first 3 categories and even now probably have progressed no further than #2.  We, most of us, are still immature in the Spirit in need of keeping the letter of the Law to have our spiritual senses trained to perfection.  Very few, only those who have lived on this earth 50 years or more and have lived the Torah for most of their life are ever qualified to pass judgment by His Law as I will show.

Let me define each of these four “spirits” that drive people to judge.

 The Unrighteous Judge – Those who abolish the Law and judge solely on their own personal moral standards. Without the Law as their foundation, everything is up to personal interpretation and personal moral standards.  That is why there are so many different denominations in Christopaganism.  These differing denominations all battling out over who is right with no common standard of righteousness (The Law) to settle their disputes.  These are the unrighteous judges mainly found in mainstream Christopaganism. I call Christianity “Christopaganism” because that is what it is, it is paganism based on the Babylonian system and demi-gods called Christos.

The Immature Judge – Those who have accepted the Law but are still infants in spiritual maturity addicted to the milk or “letter” and not trained in the “intent” or solid food. They judge by the letter and by physical sight and not by spiritual intent or “eyes to see”. These are those with the spirit of a Pharisee who tear down others to build themselves up.  I am going to address these judges today as most everyone I see around me falls into this category.

The Gossip or Rebellious Judge– These are an abomination to Yahuah.  Those who are rebellious, who rebel against the elders and teachers and seek out to undermine their authority and destroy their credibility. These are those who go behind your back with the intent to destroy your reputation by bearing false witness, who harbors “ill will” and hatred in their heart.  You know… the WOLFES in sheep’s clothing, consumed with bitterness who seeks out to destroy. They are cowards who come in the form of “love”, you know the old saying “God bless their soul“… then they commence to destroy the person with their words… oh but they do it in “love”; at least that is what they tell you. These are not true children of Yahuah and those who entertain their “tales” (gossips are “tale bearers” or bearers of tall tales) and engage with them in such gossip will not inherit The Kingdom.

The Mature Righteous Judge – Then there are those who have walked with Yahuah for years (at least 10 or more years in the Torah and 50 or more years on Earth) in obedience to The Torah which is a TRAINING AID in spiritual maturity and intent. These are Righteous Judges. They restore the assembly, build it up, and cause it to grow.  These are those with the qualifications to be considered an “Elder” in the assembly.  I am going to discuss the qualifications and qualities of these very rare individuals.

You will know when you have encountered the Unrighteous Judge because you will be judged by personal standards and not the intent of the Law.

You will know when you encounter anImmature/Untrained Judgebecause you will be condemned using the letter of the Law not the intent.  They use the letter of the Law to say “hey look at me! Look how righteous I am” by pointing out your failures.

You will know when you encounter the Gossip orRebellious Judge because the attack will come out nowhere and be directed at your “reputation” and “character” with the intent to destroy you and separate you from the assembly. Those too cowardly to confront you directly but go behind your back to slander your good name.

You will probably never realize when you encounter a trueRighteous Judge because it will come in the form of teaching and instruction in love. That is true judgment.

All of these are addressed in scripture…  I am going to teach the “intent’ behind the letter and demonstrate that only the MOST mature in age and in keeping the letter of the Law are given liberty which is the ‘fruit of keeping the Law by the letter.’ Those who mature to this point now operate with The Spirit of Holiness and the intent behind the Law… not in the flesh (letter) with a heart of stone seeking out to “stone everyone” around them.

Very few have matured to the position of “elder” walking in obedience to His Torah long enough to serve in the spiritual capacity of “High Priest” or “judge”.  You see, there is a reason why even in our secular courts judges are older in age and much wiser having practiced the Law for many years.  Even then these men are appointed to that position they aren’t automatically qualified to judge just base on years serving the Law/constitution.  This is a very good physical to spiritual parallel of Righteous Judges in the body of Yahusha.  Same goes with High Priests and Elders, they too are appointed and older in age and wiser before they can hold such a position as to judge. These elders in our assembly and body of Yahusha are those who understands and has compassion on the weak and misguided, being beset with weakness themselves and trained over a long period of time, and can righteously judge the assembly and the Law by intent.

We see the “spirit” behind such elders when Paul discusses the role of the High Priest in judgment:Hebrews 51For every high priest taken from among men is appointed on behalf of men in things pertaining to Yahuah, in order to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins; 2 he can deal gently (judge) with the ignorant and misguided, since he himself also is beset with weakness;…

Who are these “ignorant and misguided”?  They are the spiritually immature children in the spirit who have received the Law into their lives and have yet lived it long enough to develop “eyes to see” the intent behind the words.  These immature in spirit have yet to be appointed by Yahuah as mature sons.  The spiritually mature sons differ greatly in their approach than the spiritually immature child.   These mature sons are the men who (usually at least around the age 50 or older) do not seek to judge at all! You will not see them on social media condemning others out of turn or engaging in fruitless debates and getting defensive in the process. The mature sons are the ones we go to for answers and seek out for instruction. These men, our Elders, “instruct us” in His Word and lead us to understand spiritual intent.  Their judgments comes in the form of instruction not condemnation. We come away from these elders (true Righteous Judges) encouraged and empowered with more spiritual understanding and never realized we were being Righteously Judged by them. Their judgments are righteous and done in love and understanding with the intent to build up Yahuah’s family and Kingdom by instructing us to do better, to understand more, to apply ourselves to our training, to be patient, to learn spiritual truths through physical examples.

At this point in history we all are guilty of erring in the same fashion as did Israel and Pharisees, the spiritually immature (I am speaking of all those who have lived no longer than 40 years on this Earth and those who have not walked the Torah for at least around 10 years) think the Law is righteousness in itself.  These immature children operate by the letter not intent. They do not realizing the Law is a tutor, and guide… the Law is INSTRUCTION in righteousness not righteousness in itself. The Law was given to train within us a righteous seeking mindset as the Law is written on our hearts.  The Law teaches us of spiritual things through physical shadows and rehearsals.2 Timothy 3:17 All Scripture is inspired by Yahuah and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of Yahuah may be (spiritually) adequate, equipped for every good work.  

The Law is a tutor or training aid to achieve spiritual perfection which is Righteousness based on intent.  But I have met very few, really only a handful, of mature sons in my life who have been trained by the Law to know spiritual intent and have matured from the milk/letter of the Law to the meat/intent behind the letter. Full sonship is only given by Yahuah at an appointed time:Galatians 4 1 What I am saying is that as long as an heir is spiritually immature, he is no different from a slave (to the letter of The Law), although he owns the whole estate. 2The heir is subject to guardians and tutors (the letter of The Law, and elders, true appointed teachers, and judges)until the time set by his father(that the child addicted to milk becomes a full mature son capable of solid food and understands spiritual intent of the Law). —–

So we have to go through a lifetime of sanctification of our minds/spirit guided by the letter of the Law BEFORE we are appointed by Yahuah and given spiritual understanding and liberty.  We are not appointed full mature sons when we are born again; we are simply babes in the Spirit in need of MUCH growth in spiritual things. 

Let me tell you a parable of The Stove!

“As children we are given a command, “thou shalt not touch the stove!”. This is the letter of The Law and as children we aren’t given any more information about the stove other than “do not touch it”! However, there is “intent” behind that command and as we grow and mature we learn that the stove can either be hot or cold.

The intent behind the command “thou shalt not touch the stove!” is to prevent us as children from harm IF the stove is hot. As children we don’t know why it might be hot or if it is hot or not. So we just simply obey the letter of Law and do not touch the stove. But as we grow and mature we realize how the stove works and “why it is hot” and that in fact we CAN touch the stove if it is cold. We learn that if we touch the stove and it is hot we get burned and it is very painful.

Eventually once we are mature enough we are given “liberty” to touch the stove if we want. It is not that the command is no longer valid and true.  We just better understand the letter of that law to mean “don’t touch the stove if it is hot” and we still obey that law. It is our responsibility then to determine if it is hot or not; and it is our choice to touch it or not. If we do touch the hot stove and get burned… it is OUR fault and we have no one to blame but our own bad judgment.”

So is The Law of Yahuah.

As we mature we are granted “liberty” but that comes with GRAVE responsibility. The Law is not righteousness in and of itself, it is a training aid that teaches true righteousness which is found in the intent of your heart. The Law was designed to teach us through physical examples, rehearsals, laws, and ordinances what it means to love Yahuah, our neighbor, and ourselves.

As we mature we are granted “liberty” but like I said comes with GRAVE responsibility. We see the Apostle Paul proclaim this truth that the Law is a guide unto righteousness not righteousness in and of itself, instead The Law is designed to train us and equip us spiritually:2 Timothy 3:17 All Scripture is inspired by Yahuah and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; 17 so that the man of Yahuah may be (spiritually) adequate, equipped for every good work.

The Law is a roadmap to achieve spiritual perfection in each of us which is the desired destination or outcome.

The map is not the destination!

The Law of Yahuah was given so that we would come to understand the Spiritual Righteousness of Yahuah through physical parallels. The goal in each of us is to mature from a child to a son.Hebrews 5 12 For even though by this time (of keeping the letter of the Law) you ought to be teaching others (the Spiritual Intent of The Law), you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles (behind the letter) of Yahuah’s Word. You have come to need milk (physical adherence to the letter of The Law), not solid food (Spiritual Meat which is the intent behind the letter). 13 For everyone who continues to feed on milk (requiring ritual observance to the letter) is obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (spiritual intent), for he (who is stuck on the milk/letter of the Law) is a mere infant (not ready for spiritual meat not understanding intent) 14 But solid food (intent behind the letter) is for full-grown men (mature sons), for those whose senses and mental faculties(spiritual eyes/ears) are trained by practice (keeping the letter) to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.

So Paul is explaining that the immature child is the one who is stuck in ritualistic adherence to the letter which he calls “milk”. The more mature are those who by keeping the letter of the Law and seek the intent behind it have their spiritual eyes/ears opened to spiritual truths the Law was designed to teach us.  The process we all go through whereby we mature from children addicted to milk to mature sons ready for meat is called ‘sanctification’. This is the process by which we grow in the knowledge of Yahuah and our minds are purified and we develop spiritual eyes to see and ears to hear. We mature in our understanding of intent which is what the letter of the Law was designed to accomplish.  Even the Messiah Yahusha had to grow into the knowledge and obedience of Yahuah and through that obedience to the letter Yahusha was “made perfect” spiritually:Hebrews 5
8Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the things which He suffered. 9And having been made perfect, He became to all those who obey Him the source of eternal salvationLuke 2:52
And Yahusha grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with Yahuah and man

If this is true of Yahusha it is definitely true of every son of Yahuah.  Growth in wisdom, stature, and obedience for all of us comes with YEARS of seeking Yahuah through the letter of His Law and only then are we too “made perfect” in our spiritual maturity. 

As it relates to judgment… the immature judges others by what they “see” outwardly based solely on the letter of the Law.  They do not understand “spiritual intent” and have not yet been appoint by Yahuah as a mature son or a Righteous Judges. The Righteous Judge takes the person aside and works with them in love to establish the ‘intent’ and judges not with their physical eyes, but with their Spiritual “eyes to see” the intent of the heart of the person and the intent of Yahuah in giving the letter of the Law.

Most of us just “read” the Law and think we understand it, we don’t carefully examine the intent behind the Law.  Those immature untrained judges do not understand nor do they preserve the righteous intent for which the commands were given: which is to develop maturity and understand in spiritual things. You see, the Law is not two dimensional (black letters on a white page) it is 3 dimensional as it has a level of depth call spiritual intent.  Most of us even today delude our own hearts thinking that religious observant to the letter of the Law is where true righteousness is found.  We then judge others in our immaturity and cause division and do not bear fruit but rather drive everyone away with our condemnation disguised as “judgment/reproof!  The result is that those who do not seek the intent behind the letter are barren  both in fruit and in spiritual growth.James 1 25 But he who looks carefully into the faultless spiritual law, the law that leads to liberty, and is faithful to it and perseveres in looking into it (the spiritual intent of the Law which produces liberty), being not a heedless listener who forgets but an active doer (who obeys the letter to achieve its righteous outcome of spiritual intent), he shall be blessed in his doing (those who walk long enough by the letter will be appointed sons and given the blessing of liberty).  26 If anyone thinks himself to be religious (by ritually keeping the letter or milk of the word) and does not bridle his tongue but deludes his own heart (to think he is qualified to judge the Law), this person’s religious service (trying to teach and judge others) is worthless (they do not bear fruit but create division and contention in the assembly).

I challenge everyone today… Think REAL hard… name 5 people whom YOU have brought into The Kingdom who because of your loving instruction now keeps His Sabbaths, and accepts His Law, and has rejected Christopaganism.  Think of 5 people who would gladly proclaim that YOU were the instrument in their coming to know the Truth.  That is what real fruit is… not judging everyone around you putting everyone down to elevate yourself up as “righteous” in your own eyes.

What I am saying to all of you is this…

 If you “think” you are qualified to judge then you are NOT.  You are immature in thinking that you are qualified and by virtue of you thinking you are qualified proves that you are not yet a judge. Because judges are APPOINTED by Yahuah not self appointed.  

If you are not approaching 50 years on this planet and decades of keeping the letter of the Law yourself then you simply do not yet have the qualifications to be an “elder/judge”.  However, If you are respected as an elder, and an anointed teacher, and people come to you looking for guidance and instruction and you yourself FEAR judging His people and you avoid condemning anyone…  If you have walked on this planet long enough and lived the letter of the Law long enough that others truly seek you out and respect your anointing; then guess what? You have been appointed a full son by Yahuah and called to the position of Righteous Judge.  Being a judge, like being a High Priest, is not something a man takes upon himself but is appointed to those roles by Yahuah.

Intent trumps letter

The Law is not righteousness in and of itself, it is a training aid that teaches true righteousness which is found in the intent of your heart.  The Law was designed to teach us through physical examples, rehearsals, laws, and ordinances what it means to love Yahuah, our neighbor, and ourselves.  These commands, laws, and ordinances are summed up in the 10 Commandments.

·       We love Yahuah by worshipping Him the way He desires to be worshipped as defined in His Law.  The foundation of the love of Yahuah is found in the first 5 commandments 1-5 in The Big 10.

·       We love our neighbor as ourselves by obeying the next 5 commandments 6-10 in The Big 10.

·       We love ourselves by keeping His dietary laws which are good for our health and bodies.

The Law was given originally by “the letter” as all mankind was spiritually immature as “children” in the eyes of Yahuah.  Just like the parable of The Stove the letter was lacking intent.  Now in The Yahushaic Covenant we are expected to mature and seek out the “intent” behind each law, ordinance, and command and grow spiritually.  As we mature Yahuah grants us “liberty” on an individual basis.  

 We mature in our understanding of intent which is what the letter of the Law was designed for.James 121 So rid yourselves of all vulgarity and obvious evil (by keeping the letter of the Law), and receive with humility the Spiritual Word implanted in you (written on your heart by Yahuah which teaches us intent) that can save your lives. 22 Don’t deceive yourselves by only hearing what the Word says, but do it (our spiritual senses are trained through obedience to the letter of the Law)! 23 For whoever hears the Word but doesn’t do what it says is like someone who looks at his face in a mirror, 24 who looks at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like. (training in spiritual intent is accomplished by physical adherence to the letter25 But if a person looks closely into the perfect (SpiritualTorah, which gives freedom (liberty to the spiritually mature), and continues (to seek intent through obedience to the letter), becoming not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work it requires (and therefore will be trained and equipped in spiritual perfection 2 Timothy 3:17), then he will be (spiritually) blessed in what he does (with liberty in context). 26 Anyone who thinks he is religiously observant (by keeping the letter of The Law) but does not control his tongue (exercises unrighteous or immature judgment) is deceiving himself (to think he is qualified to judge), and his observance counts for nothing (he becomes a hypocrite and guilty of breaking the Law).

What the Apostle Paul is teaching in all his writings is that obedience to the letter of the Law was always indented to produce spiritually perfected sons of Yahuah.  Spiritual perfection is found in the intent of the heart not the letter of the Law. 

Yahusha taught intent behind the letter

Yahusha came not to abolish the letter, but to complete the Law teaching intent behind the letter. This is the message that Yahusha brought to us as he taught us “how to study” the letter of the Law by seeking the intent behind the letter in the “sermon on the mount”.  In Matthew Chapter 5 Yahusha declares he did not come to abolish the Law but rather to transpose the Law from letter to intent thereby fulfilling the purpose of the Law to produce mature spiritual sons of Yahuah:Matthew 517 “Don’t think that I have come to abolish the Torah or the Prophets. I have come not to abolish (the letter) but to complete (the Law by transposing it to spiritual intent). 18 Yes indeed! I tell you that until heaven and earth pass away, not so much as a yud or a stroke will pass from the Torah — not until everything that must happen has happened. 19 So whoever disobeys the least of these instructions and teaches others to do so will be called the least in the Kingdom of Heaven. But whoever obeys them (the letter) and so teaches (the spiritual intent) will be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness is far greater than that of the Torah-teachers andPharisees, you will certainly not enter the Kingdom of Heaven!

We see Yahusha do just that, teach the INTENT of the Law. What Yahusha is saying is our righteousness must exceed that of the existing teachers of the Torah and Pharisees who obeyed the very letter.  This is accomplished in us through transposition.  For those who are trained in spiritual intent (true righteousness) our righteousness will surpass that of the teachers of the Law and Pharisees who only had a “form” of righteousness” defined by the letter of the Law.  Then Yahusha continues teaching us what he means by showing us that “intent” trumps “the letter”. Yahusha uses some very extreme examples to teach “intent”:Matthew 521 “You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not murder,’and that anyone who commits murder will be subject to judgment. 22 But I tell you that anyone who nurses anger against his brother will be subject to judgment…27 “You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not commit adultery.’28 But I tell you that a man who even looks at a woman with the purpose of lusting after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 31 “It was said, ‘Whoever divorces his wife must give her a get.’32 But I tell you that anyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of fornication, makes her an adulteress; and that anyone who marries a divorcee commits adultery.33 “Again, you have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Do not break your oath,’ and ‘Keep your vows to Yahuah.’34 But I tell you not to swear at all — not ‘by heaven,’ because it is Yahuah’s throne35 not ‘by the earth,’ because it ishis footstool;and not ‘by Yerushalayim,’ because it is the city of the Great King.36 And don’t swear by your head, because you can’t make a single hair white or black. 37 Just let your ‘Yes’ be a simple ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No’ a simple ‘No’; anything more than this has its origin in evil.38 “You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.’39 But I tell you not to stand up against someone who does you wrong. On the contrary, if someone hits you on the right cheek, let him hit you on the left cheek too! 43 “You have heard that our fathers were told, ‘Love your neighbor — and hate your enemy.’44 But I tell you, love your enemies! Pray for those who persecute you! 45 Then you will become children of your Father in heaven.

Se we see that Yahusha taught the transposition of The Law from letter to intent.  INTENT trumps LETTER.  That doesn’t mean the letter has been done away with and no longer valuable.  It is our training aid in teaching us righteous intent. Remember my parable of The Stove!

Paul discusses later in Galatians 6 how destructive we can be as children going about causing division and gossiping.  We should avoid judging at all until we are mature sons qualified to judge by intent and appointed a son by Yahuah.Galatians 6 – Complete Jewish Bible1 Brothers, suppose someone is caught doing something wrong. You who have the Spirit (those qualified to judge intent) should set him right, but in a spirit of humility, keeping an eye on yourselves (being mature) so that you won’t be tempted too. Bear one another’s burdens (don’t condemn each other in the form of reproof and judgment) — in this way you will be fulfilling the Torah’s true meaning, which the Messiah upholds. For if anyone thinks he is something (like judge) when he is really nothing (but a spiritually immature child a slave to the letter of the Law), is fooling himself. So let each of you scrutinize his own actions (in light of Spiritual Intent). Then if you do find something to boast about (that you have matured in your understanding of intent over the letter), at least the boasting will be based on what you have actually done (achieved maturity and liberty) and not merely on a judgment that you are better than someone else (that is what the spiritually immature do, they judge everyone by the letter to make themselves appear more righteous);

The immature are not to judge, the mature not to misuse liberty

Paul goes into great detail in Romans 14 about the dangers of the immature child exercising judgment and the responsibility of those mature sons to be very careful with their liberty around these immature unqualified judges.  The Apostle Paul is addressing the very issue of unqualified judges vs. Righteous Judges and the dangers those who are more spiritually mature will encounter if they are not careful with their liberty.  The unqualified judge will judge them by the letter not realizing that liberty exists in the context of intent. 

Below Paul uses “food” and eating mean vs. vegetables as a physical to spiritual parallel of maturity vs. immaturity.  Paul spoke in the mystery language that Yahusha spoke in and veiled the Kingdom.  Those who do not understand this mystery language condemn Paul as though Paul is talking about the dietary laws when that is not at all what Paul was talking about. Let’s read it…Romans 141 (speaking to the spiritually mature) Accept the one whose faith is weak, without quarreling over disputable matters (which is what immature children in the faith do. They argue over things they do not yet understand). One person’s faith allows them to eat anything (they have developed teeth to eat meat of the word which is spiritually discerned, i.e. intent), but another, whose faith is weak, eats only vegetables (he is a child spiritually addicted to milk or the letter not understanding intent). The one who eats everything (the spiritually mature son who understands the spiritual law from the intent) must not treat with contempt the one who does not (have the spiritual chops to understand intent but is still a slave to the letter), and the one who does not eat everything (still addicted to milk or the letter of the Lawmust not judge the one who does (have the spiritual chops and understand intent and walk in liberty), for Yahauh has accepted them (and appointed them mature sons and granted them liberty).Who are you (the spiritually immature who are still slaves to the letter of the Lawto judgesomeone else’s servant (youare still a slave to the letter yourself!)? To their own master, servants stand or fall (the immature are not called to a position of spiritual maturity required to judge anyone for their liberty). And they (the mature with liberty) will stand (justified), for Yahuah is able to make them stand (by granting them that liberty in the first place).Now Paul gives a few examples of quarreling over disputable matters he mentioned earlier in verse 1. Matters Paul said we should not argue over because they are matters of personal liberty and maturity between Yahuah and his sons individuall)  First Paul discusses the on-going debate over which feast is more holy, Passover or Yom Kippur / Atonement.  Some people consider Passover the most holy day and others consider Atonement the most holy day.  On Passover you feast, and on atonement you fast. With that understanding let’s continue with Romans 14)One person considers one (feast) day more sacred than another; another considers every (feast) day alike (in sacred holiness). Each of them should be fully convinced in their own mind (because it is personal matter of maturity). Whoever regards one (feast) day as special does so to Yahuah. Whoever eats meat (on feast day like Passover) does so to Yahuah, for they give thanks to Elohim; and whoever abstains (fasts on Yom Kippur) does so to Yahuah and gives thanks to Elohim. For none of us lives for ourselves alone, and none of us dies for ourselves alone. (we do what we do for Yahuah..10 You (spiritually immature child enslaved to the letter of the Law), then, why do you judge your brother or sister (you are not yet qualified to judge by intent)? Or why do you (spiritually mature son who understands spiritual things and intent) treat them (the spiritually immature child) with contempt? For we will all stand before Yahuah’s  judgment seat. 12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to Yahuah (based on our personal level of maturity and liberty).13 Therefore let us stop passing (unrighteous or unqualified) judgment on one another (without spiritual maturity which is base on intent not the letter). Instead, make up your mind (you who have liberty and matured to understand intent) not to put any stumbling block or obstacle in the way of a brother or sister (who is spiritually immature and enslaved by the letter… do not exercising your liberty in front of them).Now Paul again uses eating meat as a metaphor for spiritual maturity.  Paul does this many times milk/solid food or meat/vegetables.  Paul is not talking about the dietary laws!  We must take the next passage IN CONTEXT of what Paul was discussing which is not the dietary laws but spiritual maturity.14 I am convinced, being fully persuaded in the Messiah Yahusha, that nothing (speaking of spiritual intent) is unclean in itself. But if anyone regards (speaking of spiritual intent) something as unclean, then for that person it is unclean (because whatever is not of faith is sin verse 23). 15 If your brother or sister (weaker in faith still addicted to the letter and not yet trained in intent) is distressed because of what you eat (of the meatier spiritual doctrinesbecause you have a mature understanding of intent and liberty), you are no longer acting in love (if you exercise that liberty in front of them). Do not by your eating (display of liberty) destroy someone for whom Yahusha died (because they are not yet spiritually trained by keeping the Law). 16 Therefore do not let what you know is good (understanding spiritual intent and liberty) be spoken of as evil (by the weaker in maturity as they will judge you unrighteously and go about gossiping and accusing you falsely of breaking the Law). 17 For the kingdom of Yahuah is not a matter of eating and drinking (the letter of the Law), but of (spiritual righteousness produced by obedience to the Law which is) righteousness, peace and joy in the Spirit of Holiness, 18 because anyone who serves Yahusha in this way (spiritual intent of the Law) is pleasing to Yahuah and receives human approval.19 Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification. 20 Do not destroy the work of Yahuah (though unrighteous judgment) for the sake of (metaphorically speaking) food. All food (whether it be milk, solid, meat, or vegetable… Paul is speaking in parallels here not about the Dietary law) is clean, but it is wrong for a person to eat anything that causes someone else to stumble (so be careful with your spiritual liberty in front of them). 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or to do anything else that will cause your brother or sister to fall.22 So whatever you believe about these things keep between yourself and Yahuah (maturity and liberty is to be kept personal between you and your Father). Blessed is the one who does not condemn himself by what Yahuah approves. 23 But whoever has doubts is condemned if they eat (exercise liberty), because their eating is not from faith; and everything that does not come from faith is sin.[

So Paul in Romans 14 is using “meat” and “food” as metaphors for spiritual maturity and liberty.  Paul uses this same metaphorical language in 1 Corinthians 3.  He again addresses the reality that those spiritually immature are still living as slaves to the physical letter he calls “worldly” and are mere infants in spiritual intent found in The Yahushaic Covenant:1 Corinthians 31 Brothers and sisters (speaking to the spiritually immature), I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit (intent of the Law) but as people who are still worldly (slaves to the letter of the Law)—mere infants in The Yahushaic Covenant. 2 I gave you milk (the letter of the Law), not solid food (spiritually mature intent of the letter), for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3 You are still worldly (in need of keeping the letter of the Law). For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you (proving your immaturity in spiritual growth), are you not worldly (bickering and judging based on the letter)? Are you not acting like mere humans (not mature spiritual sons)?

We see again in Hebrews 5 Paul use “food” as a metaphor for spiritual maturityHebrews 5
12 For even though by this time you ought to be teaching others (the Spiritual Intent of The Law), you actually need someone to teach you over again the very first principles (i.e. the letter) of Yahuah’s Word. You have come to need milk (physical adherence to the letter of The Law), not solid food (Spiritual Meat which is the intent behind the letter). 13 For everyone who continues to feed on milk (requiring ritual observance to the letteris obviously inexperienced and unskilled in the doctrine of righteousness (which is based on spiritual intent, maturity, and liberty), for he (who is stuck on the milk) is a mere infant (not ready for spiritual meat not understanding intent) 14 But solid food (intent behind the letter) is for full-grown men (mature sons), for those whose senses and mental faculties (spiritual eyes/earsare trained by practice(keeping the letter) to discriminate and distinguish (spiritually) between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law (i.e. be trained as a Righteous Judge)

So today we see that Yahusha, Paul, James, and many others taught that Righteous Judgment is only to be exercised by those MATURE in both physical age and The Torah.  Those who have had their spiritual senses trained by obedience to the letter and have been APPOINTED Righteous Judges by Yahuah. 

No one is qualified to be a “judge over The Law” simply because they now keep The Torah.  The spiritual growth from the point of being “born again” is directly related to your physical growth from physical birth.  The pace at which we grow physically is a parallel of spiritual truth.  In otherwords, if you accepted The Law in your life 3 years ago, you are a 3 year old in spiritual growth and understand spiritual things about as much as a 3 year old physical child understands the world around him.

The Word WAS God? … No! 
“The Divinely Spoken Promise exists Eternally in The Heavenly Scroll!” Yahuchanan/John 1:1-5.

The Gospel of John restored… The Testimony of Yahuchannan

Overview
_______________________________________________

The Testimony of John Chapter 1 begins with the fulfillment of Zechariah’s (the Immerser’s Priestly Father who served in The Temple) prophecy concerning John the Immerser’s role as a Prophet of Yahuah. John the Immerser was to restore The Heavenly Scroll and show Yahuah’s People The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering laid out in the stars at Creation. He was to “set the Path of The Messiah straight” by Mikveh’ing The Messiah clean of his sin by walking The Way so that he could be consecrated High Priest by Yahuah (ZZechariah Chapter 3).

Let us review the prophecy spoken over Yahuchanan/John the Immerser by his father Zacharyahu/Zechariah.

Luke 1:76-79
76 And you, my child, will be called a Prophet of the Most High (for proclaiming The Heavenly Scroll/Plan of Salvation); for you will go on before The Messiah to prepare THE WAY for him (of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering Matthew 3:13-17), 77 to give his people the Knowledge of Salvation through the forgiveness of their sins (through MIKVEH called The Way), 78 because of the tender Mercy of our Elohim, BY WHICH THE RISING SUN WILL COME TO US FROM THE HEAVENLY SCROLL (to restore The Word of His Testimony written in the stars John Chapter 1:1-3)! 79 to (arise and) shine (ORION the Bearer of the Light of Life Isaiah 60:1) on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death (John 1:5), to guide our feet into the Path of Peace (as the Prince of Peace Isaiah 6:9 to re-unite the two houses constellation Cancerand brings The covenant of Peace to the Nations Isaiah 42:5-7).

This is the Scriptural context of Yahuchanan/John 1:1-28 and must be understood within the context of what Yahuchanan/John the Immerser was sent to accomplish, what he taught, and the role he played in The Plan of Salvation. He did not come to bear witness to “God coming to Earth in the flesh” but rather to testify and bear witness to The Heavenly Scroll and that it would be fulfilled in the flesh by Yahusha.

“The Word was God” … or “the Spoken Promise exists Divinely Preserved in the Heavens”?
_______________________________________________

John Chapter 1 has been mistranslated by pagan scribes to incorporate pagan doctrines and philosophies into what John actually wrote. We have been misled to literally blaspheme Yahuah by our English Bibles! We must correct this grave error in translation and restore The Truth. Yahusha was not a pre-existing member of a triune deity, he was not a god, and the Word is not a “person” it is an “it”!

So, let us correct the “Lying Pen of the Scribes” and restore the Truth and “come out of Babylon”.

Let’s begin with John 1:1… Below is the twisted version we find in every modern translation:

John 1:1
In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

I am going to prove that is a gross mistranslation of the text, a violation of the rules of the languages, and built on Greek Philosophy not the Hebraic Mindset. Remember, The Gospel of John was written in HEBREW (by a Nazarene) as I will show and used the word “dabar” (not “logos”) which, dabar, means “God’s Predestined Plan or Spoken Promise”. It is referring to The Heavenly Scroll, not a pre-existing demi-god!

John 1:1 should read:

Yahuchanan/John 1:1
In the Beginning was the SPOKEN PROMISE (The Word of His Testimony), and the SPOKEN PROMISE (to send a Messiah) was with Yahuah (in The Beginning Gen. 1:2 and Yahuah SAID "let there be light"), and the Spoken Promise exists Divinely written in heaven (in the stars at Creation called The Heavenly Scroll see Psalm 19).

Below I am going to address each word in that phrase “Word was God” and prove it is a mistranslation and twisting of the text under The Spirit of the False Messiah to elevate The Messiah into a Greek demigod in idolatry (see Romans 1).

The “WORD” was God
_______________________________________________

LOGOS (Greek for ‘word’) and Dabar (Hebrew for ‘word’) mean a “thing (word/promise) spoken by a living being” or rather a “word” as in plan, proposal, or promise. LOGOS / DABAR is a THING not a person by the very definition. So right away that rules out the translation “and the word was God” as it is the THING/Promise Spoken BY God, it is not a god or god.

The Word “WAS” God
_______________________________________________

The word the translators used to translate g1510was‘ is in error as well. The Word/LOGOS / DABAR/Spoken Promise called The Heavenly Scroll exists Eternally… not in past tense ‘was’.

1 Peter 1:25
but the Word of Yahuah stands forever (written in The Heavenly Scroll Psalm 119:89, Psalm 89:2). And this is the Word (of His Testimony) that was proclaimed to you (The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll is at hand).
Psalm 119:89
Your Word (Dabar/LOGOS/Spoken Promise), Yahuah, is Eternal; it stands firm (written) in The Heavenly Scroll.
Psalm 89:2
For I have said, "Lovingkindness will be built up forever; In The Heavenly Scroll You will establish Your Faithfulness."

The true translation of g1510 is not ‘was‘… it is EXISTS!

The Word was “GOD”
_______________________________________________

The word translated ‘God’ is also out of context in this case. Since ‘Word’ is not a god, it is a thing, then we must choose the definition of g2316 that harmonizes with the Scriptures; not the word that conforms to Greek Philosophy. Strong’s g2316 has the first definition of t his word as “divinely” or “godly” as in something from Yahuah such as His Spoken Promise is a “Divine Promise” in proper context.

The Spoken Promise (LOGOS – g3056) exists ( en – g1510) Divinely (Theos – g2316)!
_______________________________________________  

Now that we have examined the actual Greek words translated “Word was God”, we find the actual translation (outside of pagan Greek Philosophical influence) is that Yahuah’s Spoken Promise in Gen. 1:2 “let there be light/Revelation” was then Authored into Creation on Day 4 with the Creation of The Heavenly Scroll as SIGNS… that tell of The Coming Messiah Psalm 19 as I will prove without a doubt in my book The Testimony of Yahuchanan.

This is what all the Prophets proclaimed and what the Nazarenes taught… The Word/LOGOS / DABAR is called The Heavenly Scroll; written into Creation as an Eternal witness to all mankind and IT (the Word of His Testimony/LOGOS / DABAR) exists as Yahuah’s stamp over His Creation and Promise to reconcile all things back to Himself through a human mediating Royal High Priest. It was that “Word” that Yahusha came to fulfill he did not come to Earth from some mythical place called Heaven located in the stars where he lived with “God”! That is 100% pagan… and we all fell for it because of The Lying Pen of the Scribes made The Word of His Testimony into a lie.

Hebrews 10:7
Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the Heavenly Scroll-- I have come to do Your Will, my God! (Matthew 6:10)
Matthew 6:10
Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on Earth as it is (written) in (the) Heaven(ly Scroll).

This Message is The Gospel that John the Immerser was Anointed to bring as the Greatest Prophet of all.

Matthew 3:1-3
1 In those days John the Immerser came teaching The Way [Doctrine of Righteousness of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering which is The Way to forgiveness of sin] (Luke 1:77-79), preaching in the wilderness of Yahdah/Judea 2 and saying, Repent, for The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll is near (The Branch/Messiah/King foretold in the stars was at hand). 3 This is he who was spoken of through the Prophet Isaiah: A voice of one calling in the wilderness (restoring The Heavenly Scroll – ‘the rising Sun will come to us from The Heavenly Scroll), Prepare The Way for The King (Luke 1:77-79), making his Path straight through Mikveh (forgiveness of his sin through Living Water/Mikveh Matthew 3:13-17 the foundation of The New Covenant Jeremiah 31, Ezekiel 36).

This is the Message that Yahusha the Nazarene came to teach and reveal.

Matthew 4:16-17
the people living in darkness (following The Way of the Gentiles, the corrupted Zodiac Romans 1) have seen a great Light (as ‘the Sun has come to us from The Heavenly Scroll’ to show us The Way/Doctrine of Righteousness of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering Luke 1:77-78, Malachi 4:2); on those living in the land of (the Gentiles who live in) the shadow of death (of the corrupted Babylonian Zodiac Romans 1. ‘I will make you a covenant to the Nations, I will also give you for a Light, fulfillment of The Light of the Sun, to the Gentiles’ Isaiah 42:7-9), a Light has dawned (the rising sun has been fulfilled on Earth in the flesh John 1:1-4, Luke 1:77-79).17 From that time on Yahusha began to teach The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering saying, Repent (Circumcision of Heart) and be Mikveh’d (washed clean of your sin Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 36), for The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll (Shamayim – ‘the stars’) is within your reach (he has come to fulfill it and show us The Way).

And this is the Gospel Message we all, as Nazarenes, are to take to the Nations:

Matthew 10:6-7
6 Go rather to the Lost Sheep of Yisrael. 7 As you go, preach this Message: ‘- The Kingdom proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll has been fulfilled (at hand)”

We have turned our backs on The Word of His Testimony.

John 12:39-41
39 For this reason (turning their back on The Heavenly Scroll and following The Way of the Gentiles) they were unable to believe. For again, Isaiah says: 40 He has blinded their eyes and hardened their hearts, so that they cannot see with their eyes (what the stars proclaim Psalm 19), and understand with their hearts (the meaning of the Light of the Sun Yeshayahu/Isaiah 6:9-10), and turn (from The Way of the Gentile Sun Worship), and I would heal them (as 'the Sun coming with healing in its wings' Malachi 4:2). 41 Isaiah said these things because he saw Yahusha’s Glory (as he witnessed The Heavenly Scroll which declare the Glory of Yahuah Psalm 19 and Enoch 35:3) and spoke about Yahusha (revealed the contents of The Heavenly Scroll Isaiah 48)
Isaiah 6:9-10
9 He said, Go, and tell this people: 'Keep on listening (to what the stars proclaim to all mankind day after day Psalm 19), but do not perceive (the meaning of the constellations); Keep on looking (for the Secrets Preserved in the heavens which men were striving to learnEnoch 9:6), but do not comprehend the Secret (The Plan of Salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll).' 10 "Render the hearts of this people insensitive, Their ears dull, And their eyes blind, Otherwise they might see with their eyes (The Heavenly Scroll), Hear with their ears (what the stars proclaim), Understand with their hearts (the Plan of Salvation which is the meaning of the Light of the Sun as traveling the ecliptic Psalm 19), And return and be healed."
2 Corinthians 4:4
The god of this Age has blinded the minds of unbelievers so they cannot see the Light of the Gospel of the Glory of Yahusha (The Heavenly Scroll), who is the image of Elohim (the risen Son, Divine Representative of Yahuah’s Power and Majesty h430elohim’ Thayer’s – “1 plural in number. a. rulers, judges, either as divine representatives at sacred places or as reflecting the divine majesty and power of God).
Jeremiah 8:7-9
7 But My People do not know The Ordinance of Yahuah (Eternally preserved in the stars Psalm 119:89, Psalm 89:2). 8 How can you say, We are wise men (h2450 chakam - 'astrologers' and know ‘the Secrets preserved in The Heavenly Scroll which men were striving to learn’ Enoch 6:9), And the Word of Yahuah's Testimony (that Yahusha is The Branch foretold in The Heavenly Scroll) is with us? But behold, the ‘lying pen of the scribes’ has made My Word (LOGOS / DABAR - 'Spoken Promise in the beginning' Eternally preserved in The Heavenly Scroll Psalm 119:89, Psalm 89:2) into a lie (by removing The Word of His Testimony). 9 The wise men (h2450 chakam – ‘astrologers’) are put to shame (for twisting The Heavenly Scroll into Incarnation the 'Mystery' of the Babylonian Zodiac), They are dismayed (by the constellations/stars/Sun to worship them Jeremiah 10:2 – "Do not learn the way of the nations (corrupted Babylonian Zodiac), and do not be dismayed at the Signs/constellations/stars of The Heavenly Scroll”) and caught (in idolatry Deuteronomy 4:19 – “When you look to the heavens and see the Sun, moon, and stars—all the stars in the sky—do not be led astray to bow in worship to them and serve them.”); 9 Behold, they have rejected the Word of My Testimony (The Heavenly Scroll), And what kind of wisdom (Spiritual Understanding of The Plan of Salvation written in the stars which proclaim The Glory of Yahuah Psalm 19:1, which is Yahusha Hebrews 1:3, and declare His Handiwork Psalm 19 and Enoch 35:3 and many more Scriptures) do they have (because the Scriptures are literally based on The Heavenly Scroll/Plan of Salvation/LOGOS written in the stars at Creation which is what Yahusha came to fulfill Hebrews 10:7 and Matithyahu/Matthew 6:10)?…

Human sacrifice? Or greatest expression of love? … by Rav Sha’ul the Nazarene

Human sacrifice?…
No! It was an offering of the ultimate expression of love and covenant obedience!

How Yahusha arranged his own death as an offering of love to save his brothers

One of the most basic tenants of the Faith of the Nazarenes, is that Yahusha was the Fulfillment of the Promise to The House of Zadok to be the Eternal High Priest. Yahusha’ offered his life as a ‘living sacrifice’, his life was not taken unwillingly as a ‘human sacrifice’.  I will demonstrate that Yahusha arranged his own execution out of love to fulfill his role as The Branch in covenant with Yahuah.

John 10The Good Shepherd and his sheep who enter through the Narrow Gate of Passover

 

“1 Very truly I tell you Pharisees, anyone who does not enter the sheep pen by the gate (Passover by Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering), but climbs in by some other way (Easter or Seder), is a thief and a robber. 2 The one who (properly) enters by the gate (giving his life as an offering on Passover) is the Shepherd of the (rest of the) sheep. 3 The gatekeeper (Yahuah) opens the gate for him (the Shepherd Yahusha who leads us out of a life of bondage into a new life of freedom from sin by his Passover example), and the sheep (we too are lambs of Yahuah) listen to his (Yahusha’s) voice (example). He calls his own sheep (Passover Lambs) by name and leads them out (of this physical world and into The Kingdom of Yahuah through walking The Way on Passover). 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them (as the Forefather of Everlasting Life Isaiah 9:6 laying down his life as an example to follow: offering his life as a living sacrifice and suffering at the stake on Passover), and his sheep follow him (in the Passover example he set of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering) because they know his voice. 5 But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice.” 6 Yahusha used this figure of speech (Mystery Language Alert!), but the Pharisees did not understand what he was telling them (1 Cor. 1:23). 7 Therefore Yahusha said again, “Very truly I tell you, I am (My example is) the gate (the Passover Lamb and true and living way to follow) for the (rest of the) sheep (lambs of Yahuah). 8 All (pagan god-men, incarnated ‘God in the flesh’) who have come before me (claiming to be the Christ) are thieves and robbers, but the (true) sheep have not listened to them. 9 I am the gate (the Passover Lamb and the way or the example to follow); whoever enters through me (follows My reverent submissive example on Passover) will be saved (from death. Yahuah will save them as He did Yahusha Hebrews 5:7-11 raising the human Messiah granting him eternal life… the meaning of Passover). They will come in (by following Yahusha’s example Mikveh, Circumcision, and offering their lives as a living sacrifice on Passover) and go out (into The Kingdom of Yahuah), and find pasture (rest). 10 The thief (incarnated demi-gods) comes only to steal and kill and destroy (by abolishing Passover for a sacrifice of a pig on Easter); I have come (to set the example and show the way i.e. Shepherd) that they may have (eternal) life (by following My example), and have it to the full (fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll CAPRICORNUS). 11 “I am the Good Shepherd. The Good Shepherd lays down his life (as a living sacrifice on Passover to pay the dowry for his Bride) for the sheep (to follow as an example, as he Shepherds us through the gate, we are all Passover Lambs).

The Messiah was not “sacrificed” by another to a ‘god.’ He came to give his life as an offering to show us The Way! The problem is, I know of no teacher on Earth that properly teaches The Way through The Narrow Gate…  the example of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering on Passover.  To understand “why” Yahusha gave his life, we must know The Way and the purpose of The Messiah to fulfill The Plan of Salvation written in the stars.  I produced the following video, watch it before going any further or you will never understand what Yahusha came here to do and why he gave his life on Passover.

Yahusha was fulfilling The Heavenly Scroll which declares that eternal life will spring from the death of The Branch/Groom who pays the dowry for his Bride with his own life to redeem her from death as her High Priest.

Ephesians 5

“25 Husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the body and (willingly) 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 (Bride), without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish (as spotless Passover Lambs of Yahuah), but holy and blameless (on Passover).

VIRGO: A young maiden will give a virgin birth (the Branch will open her womb and be the firstborn and heir) to a beautiful glorious and righteous branch.  The seed of the woman will be a man of humiliation to rise to be the desire of nations and will become exalted first as shepherd (High Priest/Spring Feasts) then as harvester (Conquering King/Fall Feasts).  LIBRA: The scales demand a price to be paid of this seed (he must pay the dowry with his life), the wood of the sacrifice to carry; the victim will be slain and purchase a crown. SCORPIO: There is a conflict between the seed and the serpent leading to a struggle with the enemy; the enemy is vanquished. SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured seed (King and High Priest) triumphs as a warrior and pleases the heavens, builds fires of punishment, casts down the dragon.             CAPRICORNUS: Eternal life comes from his death, he’s the Arrow of God, he is pierced, yet springs up again in abundant life.  AQUARIUS: He pours out “living water” from on high, humanity drinks of the heavenly river and the faithful live again, he is the deliverer of the good news (Gospel), Carrying the wood of the sacrifice over the earth. PISCES: The Redeemer’s people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, the Bridegroom is exalted. ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride is made ready, Satan is bound, the strong man triumphs. TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime vanquisher, to execute the great judgment, he is the ruling Shepherd King. GEMINI: The Marriage of the Lamb, the enemy is trodden down, the Prince comes in great Glory. CANCER: The great Bride, the two Houses of Judah and Israel are united, they are brought safely into the kingdom. LEO: The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, his Carcass is devoured. The Lion of the tribe of Judah rules as King.

Yahusha then entered into a covenant with The Creator in Zechariah Chapter 3 that “IF” he fulfills his role as High Priest and pays the dowry willingly to redeem his Bride in fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll, “THEN” Yahuah would declare him The Branch (the fulfillment of The Word of His Testimony written in the stars), seat him King over His Household, and forgive the iniquity and remember the sins of his Bride ‘no more’ and his Bride would live again.

We see that it was not a “human sacrifice” where a man is unwillingly sacrificed to a god by another man, it had to be Yahusha’s choice out of love to die to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll to redeem his Bride.  For more on the covenant between The Messiah and The Creator to be “the Branch” click here.

Zechariah 3

Yahusha’s sin forgiven through Mikveh, Yahuah consecrates Yahusha High Priest directly, and enters into The Yahushaic Covenant to “forgive our sin.”

___________________________________________________

1 Then he showed me Yahusha the high priest standing before the angel of YHVH, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 YHVH said to Satan, “YHVH rebuke you, Satan! YHVH, who has chosen Jerusalem (because Satan is attempting to get Yahusha NOT to empty himself of his right to the throne and take the kingdom by force Matthew 4:9), rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire (Yahusha had been in the desert for 40 days with little food Matthew 4:2)?”

 

3 Now Yahusha was dressed in filthy clothes (metaphor of sin Isaiah 64:6) as he stood before the angel. 4 The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then YHVH said to Yahusha, “See, I have taken away your sin (Yahusha had just been Mikveh’d clean of his sin by John to fulfill the Righteous Requirements of The Law Matthew 3:13-17 and Ezekiel 36:24-31), and I will put fine garments (of the High Priest) on you.” 5 Then I said, “Put a clean turban (of the High Priest Hebrews 4:15) on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him (in the garments of the High Priest), while the angel of YHVH stood by. 6 The angel of YHVH gave this charge to Yahusha (here is The Yahushaic Covenant!) 7 “This is what YHVH Almighty says: ‘IF (Yahuah makes a conditional promise, a COVENANT; that Yahusha must give his life to pay the dowry willingly to fulfill The Plan of Salvation ) you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements (of The Branch foretold in The Heavenly Scroll to come FIRST as Suffering Servant and die THEN Conquering King to rule AND walk with no sin as High Priest Hebrews 4:15), THEN (here is the promise if he fulfills The Heavenly Scroll as The Glorious Righteous Branch Virgo and gives his life out of love to pay the dowry to redeem his Bride) you will govern my house (i.e. King over the government that will govern creation Isaiah 9:6 and Constellation LEO) and have charge of my courts (Eternal Judge 2 Cor 5:10), and I will give you a place (right hand of YHVH Mark 16:19) among these standing here 8 “‘Listen, High Priest Yahusha, you and your associates seated (who came) before you (probably Adam, Enoch, Moses, Elijah, etc.), who (those seated before him) are men symbolic of things (foretold in the stars) to come (they were not The Branch just shadows/prototypes): I am going to bring (you from this point forward IF you fulfill this agreement and give your life willingly to pay the dowry) My servant (Isaiah 61), The Branch (he is The Messiah and fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll Virgo). 9 See, the stone I have set in front of Yahusha! There are seven streams of living water (eyes) on that one stone (witness written in stone as Yahusha was full of the 7 Spirits Revelation 5:6), and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says YHVH Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day (Jeremiah 31:34 – Yahuah will fulfill His promise to “forgive our iniquity and remember our sin no more” in a NEW covenant with Yahusha).

Yahusha then literally arranged his own death to save his brothers and manipulated the unbelieving Jews into killing him on Passover to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll as the Feast Cycle is an annual celebration of The Plan of Salvation laid out in “shamayim/stars”!

John 15

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.

 

1 John 3

16 By this we know what love is: Yahusha laid down His life for us, and we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers.

 

John 10

No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again (Yahuah’s promise if he obeyed and gave his life). This command I received from my Father (Zechariah Chapter 3).”

 

1 Timothy 2:6

who (Yahusha/The Branch) gave Himself (willingly) as a ransom (dowry) for all (his Bride) — the testimony of Yahusha (The Heavenly Scroll) that was fulfilled at JUST THE RIGHT TIME.

 

Mark 10

44 and whoever (fulfills The Heavenly Scroll) wants to be first (rule as The Lion of the Tribe of Judah/LEO) must be the slave of all (first come as The Suffering Servant to die for his Bride LIBRA). 45 For even the Son of Man (ORION in The Heavenly Scroll) did not come (the first time in the 4,000th year as foretold in The Heavenly Scroll to die at the end of The Age of Aries the the Lamb click here) to be served (as Conquering King TAURUS), but (to empty himself of his right to rule VIRGO and) to serve (as The Suffering Servant CAPRICORN), and to give His life as a ransom (dowry CAPRICORN) for many (to redeem his Bride from death and call her out from among the nations Age of Pisces).”

 

Titus 2

14 Yahusha (emptied himself of his right to rule mankind VIRGO) gave himself (willingly to Yahuah as High Priest) for us to redeem us (pay the dowry PISCES) from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people (Bride/PISCES) for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.

Yahusha was willingly fulfilling The Heavenly Scroll… on purpose!

Plan of Salvation written in the stars

We never quite get the real story from our modern-day teachers and anti-messianic “Jews” who deny the Messiah and leave us all questioning the sacrifice of Yahusha. We have erred in our understanding of the Plan of Salvation, and run the very real risk of falling out of Covenant with Yahuah in our ignorance (lack of Knowledge). Worse yet, we are being led to commit blasphemy against the Spirit of Yahuah by modern translations.

How did Yahusha give his own life?

Yahusha knew from the prophecy of Daniel that the first half of his ministry as The Suffering Servant would be 3.5 years before he was “cut off”.  His ministry began when he was adopted by Yahuah by walking The Way and he was declared The Passover Lamb by John (when he was ‘baptized’).  Yahusha knew the exact Passover that he must give his life to fulfill Daniel’s prophecy (the one 3.5 years from his Mikveh).

 

Yahusha orchestrated the events during that Passover to ensure he would be killed ON PASSOVER. He intentionally rode a donkey through the Gates in front of the High Priest. He usurped the fake High Priest’s authority (because Yahusha was the real High Priest: see Zechariah Chapter 3), infuriated the ruling Temple Elite on the “big day” each year putting him on “the most wanted list” of the High Priest to want him dead.

 

Then he went to the Temple and disrupted the money flow on the most lucrative day of the year… Passover! The day when everyone in Israel had to make sacrifices.  The Temple Elite would not allow outside animals to be used as sacrifices, you had to BUY them from the Temple Elite. This was their “commercial Christmas” and Yahusha put a stop to it, intentionally putting him on the “most wanted list” of the Temple Elite, making them want him dead!

 

Then Yahusha made arrangements with Judas (his most trusted ally as Judas was a Scissori / assassin trained in such covert missions against the Roman sympathizing Jews), to have himself “captured” on the eve of the preparation day, knowing they would have to try him immediately and then execute him with the planned executions later that day on Passover or face a revolt among the people.

 

He had a hand in it all… so that he could “give his life to save his brothers” and fulfill The Heavenly Scroll and the covenant he entered into with Yahuah.  He was NOT “sacrificed by another” he willingly laid down his life and did it intentionally.

 

Hebrews 10:7

Then I said, ‘Here I am–it is written about me in the heavenly scroll– I have come to do your will, my God! (Matthew 6:10)

 

Matthew 6:10

Your kingdom (proclaimed in shamayim/heaven/the stars) come, Your will be done, on earth as it is (written) in (the) heaven(ly scroll).

With that introduction, I will turn it over to Biblical Scholar and Historian Robert D. Mock, MD to tell us all “the rest of the story”…

The Fulfillment of Passover
by Robert D. Mock MD

 

Let us turn our attention to the events which led up to the crucifixion. Galilee and Judea were astir, for it was a Sabbatical Passover that occurred every seven years. According to Mosaic Law, every seventh year the land would rest, with no cultivation. The only produce during that year that could be grown, was that which grew naturally, whether it was fruits or grains.

 

 

As such, the population would have to stockpile provisions for that seventh year. During this time, the land stood at rest, and the population was on a year long Sabbatical. During this time, eager followers of any Messianic or Hasmonean aspirant to the throne flocked to their cause. Those who were Torah students would spend the year in the rabbinic schools of Torah study. These were peak years for the Zealot’s cause, with their obsessed goal to free Judea from Roman rule. The Sicarii were always available to promote the cause of freedom even if it meant a quick assassination of an opponent.

 

We see Yahusha heading to Jerusalem, and for the first time he cautions his disciples to arm themselves, if nothing more than self-defense. Peter takes on the stance of a personal bodyguard of Yahusha. Prior to Yahusha’s arrival, word reaches him of the death of several Zealot patriots, which give every appearance that the perimeters of Jerusalem, or at least the City of David, had been secured in anticipation of a general uprising. Then the battering rams were brought into the Kidron Valley. Soon the strong tower of Siloam toppled and with it the death of eighteen Zealot defenders.

 

 

The 8th of Nisan (Aviv) – Yahusha at Bethany

 

John 12:1

“Then, six days before the Passover, Yahusha came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom he had raised from the dead.”

It was now six days before the Passover (8th of Nisan), and Yahusha was arriving in Bethany. At this time he was a hunted man. Ever since the resurrection of Lazarus, a few days’ prior, the Jewish leadership, were plotting to put Yahusha to death.” (John 11:53)

John 11:49-50; 53-54

“And one of them, Caiphas, being the high priest that year, said to them, ‘You know nothing at all, nor do you consider that it is expedient for us that one man should die for the people, and not that the whole nation should perish…Then, from that day on, they plotted to put Him to death. Therefore, Yahusha no longer walked openly among the Jews (because it was not yet time to die), but went from there into the country near the wilderness, to a city called Ephraim, and there remained with His disciples (until he could arrange his own death on Passover to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll “at just the right time1 Timothy 2:6).”

In the few days prior to the Passover, Yahusha had escaped with his disciples to a wilderness town of Ephraim. (John 11:54). There they waited out the days before the Passover. The tension was high. The suspense was intense.

The city of Jerusalem was abuzz. Pilgrims by the hundreds of thousands were thronging into the city. As with every year, this was the day when they anticipated the announcement of the coming of the Messiah. Would this be the year? The pilgrims in route would collect palm branches and cedar boughs to bring with them in anticipation of the Messiah. As with every festival, every living space a pilgrim resided. There they entered the mitzvah baths to purify themselves. And then at the temple, they awaited and watched for the coming of the Messiah. The whole populace was also in anticipation of whether Yahusha would come to the feast. Also the chief priests and Pharisees were also waiting, for ‘if anyone knew where he was, the word was out that he should report it, so that the temple leaders might seize him. (John 11:35)

 

John 11:56-57

“Then they sought Yahusha, and spoke among themselves as they stood in the temple, ‘What do you think – that he will not come to the feast?’ Now both the chief priests and the Pharisees had given a command, that if anyone knew where he was, he should report it, that they might seize him (their intention was not to kill him on Passover, they were manipulated into that by Yahusha who did not allow himself to be captured until the Eve of Passover).”

 

The 9th of Nisan (Aviv) – Yahusha as Guest of Honor with Simon the Pharisee

 

On the eve of the fifth day before Passover, Yahusha was a guest of honor in the home of Simon, in a celebration feast. There, Mary Magdalene, the sister of Martha and Lazarus was also an honored guest. She opened an alabaster vase with a pound of spikenard and anointed the head and the feet of Yahusha, in the manner of anointing a king.

 

Matthew 26:6

“And when Yahusha was in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, a woman came to Him having an alabaster flask of very costly fragrant oil, and she poured it on his head as he sat at the table.”

 

John 12:1-4

“Then, six days before the Passover, Yahusha came to Bethany, where Lazarus was who had been dead, whom He had raised from the dead. There they made him a supper; and Martha served, but Lazarus was one of those who sat at the table with Him. Then Mary took a pound of very costly oil of spikenard, anointed the feet of Yahusha, and wiped His feet with her hair. And the house was filled with the fragrance of the oil. But one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, who would betray him (at Yahusha’s request), said, ‘Why was this fragrant oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?’”

 

The 10th of Nisan (Aviv) – Yahusha Arrives in Jerusalem as a King of the House of David

 

It was on the evening prior to the day of the lamb selection by the high priest, Yahusha made special preparations with his disciples (talmidim) for the events of the next day. It was a secret mission. Yahusha knew that on the fourth day before the Passover, the High Priest was to leave the city through the north gate as he went to the sheep herds and inspected the yearling flock for the most perfect lamb of the season. With this in mind, Yahusha then laid out his strategy with his disciples (to usurp the High Priest’s Authority so that he would want to kill him).

This morning of the 10th day of Nisan awakened. The sky was crystal clear, the cool early spring breezes swept down through the Kidron valley. The ripened barley was waving at the base of the Mount of Olives in the Field of Ashes. As directed, the chosen disciples found a donkey with a young colt tied in a doorway near an open street. On the side of the Mount of Olives, the disciples (talmidim) awaited their master.

 

Within the city of Jerusalem, the crowds of pilgrims were in anticipation of a great procession with the arrival of the Pesach Lamb. Every year, four days before Passover, a vast entourage of cohanim (priests) would file out of the Herod’s Temple. Instead of exiting out of the gate nearest the Temple on the western wall and walking over the overhanging bridge over the Tyropean Valley that connected the Temple Mount with the Upper City, the procession of hundreds of cohanim (priests) paraded out of the Royal Stoa’s western gate entrance, where the vast temple market place, the Bazaar of Hanan (Ananus the Elder) was located. There they walked down the wide staircase over what is known as the Robinsons’ Arch, turning south, then west and finally north as they connected with the main north-west street of Jerusalem, the Damascus street going to the north gate, known as the Damascus Gate.

 

The procession entered the Upper City, where the densely packed homes, had the appearance of an impenetrable wall. To the left was the tall imposing Hasmonean Palace, built over a hundred years prior looming high on the horizon.

 

The cohanim (priests) began to line the sides of the Damascus street, two by two, maintaining positions on either side of the street, as they rocked back and forth with palm fronds in their hands. As the cohanim positioned themselves, the high priest and his entourage made its way north to the north gate. Outside the city they inspected the flocks of yearling lambs to find the most perfect lamb. Year after year this custom was dramatized on the fourth day prior to Passover. Inside the city, the hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who flocked to the city had already arrived, each one bringing a palm frond or cedar bough, they had collected in route to the Holy City. The whole city was lined with greenery as they placed these boughs outside the residence that they were staying.

 

The eager cohanim (priests) awaited the return of the high priest. When Caiphas, the high priest entered the Damascus Gate bringing the selected lamb by his side, the cohanim at the gate began shouting, “Hosanna to the Highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord! Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that is coming! Hosanna in the Highest!” (Mark 11:9-10) Upon hearing the shout the people in the city, those who had already purified themselves in the mitzvahs in the southern part of the city, ran out into the street, also bringing their fronds and started shouting, “Hosanna in the Highest!

 

Outside the Damascus Gate, to the east of the city, the disciples on the Mount of Olives were waiting to rendezvous with Yahusha. We now have a whole group of disciples (talmidim), a mother donkey and her two-three year old colt. A blanket is put over the colt and Yahusha quietly puts his hand on the colt’s mane. This was the colt’s first riding experience. The quietness of the master was transmitted to the colt as he mounts and they begin the descent into the Kidron Valley into the city.

 

In unison, as cued by the Rabbi Yahusha, the disciples begin to shout, “Hosanna in the Highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of our Lord!” The flocks of pilgrims join in the chant as Yahusha and the talmidim (disciples) went around the northern part of the Temple Mount, below the base of the Antonia Fortress towards the Gate of Damascus.

 

In the meantime, the Caiphas, the High Priest, has now exited the Northern Damascus Gate and was heading out to the fields to inspect the flocks of yearling lambs. The chant intensified, the cohanim at the Gate hear the chant and began to shout, “Hosanna in the Highest! Blessed is he who comes in the Name of our Lord!” The chant now cascaded like a domino down the Damascus street all the way to the wall to the temple mount. Suddenly, the cohanim at the gate realize, they have been fooled. This was not the return of the high priest. This was Rabbi Yahusha and his disciples. Some of the Shammaite Pharisees, the dogmatic sticklers of church protocol and defining the letter of the truth, challenged Yahusha, “Teacher, rebuke your disciples.” Yahusha shouts back to them over the swelling cries of the multitude, “If these were silent, the very stones would cry out.” (Luke 19:40)

 

The people began to flock out of their homes, grabbing their palm fronds outside the doors and the shouting swelled throughout the city. Anticipation was high! The whole land had heard of the teachings of the great Rabbi Yahusha. Was this not a Sabbatical year, a special year in which the whole land rests? Were not rumors abounding throughout the land that the Messiah would come in the on the Shabbat of years?

 

Not only was it a Sabbatical year, it was a Sabbatical Passover, which only occurred every seven years, the Highest Passover when pilgrims throughout the Diaspora flocked to the Holy Land. The city was swollen with pilgrims throughout the world; Macedonia, Crete, Parthia, Rome, and Ethiopia. Each pilgrim from their own countries, each with their strange costumes akin to their native land, many trying to remember a bit of Hebrew they rarely used, occasionally breaking into the tongue of their land of residence, all producing a cacophony of sound and sight.

 

You can almost see a cohanim, rocking back and forth with their palm fronds, breaking the rhythm, leaning over and peering up the street. Where is the priest? Where is the Lamb? Suddenly they see. What! “Rabbi Yahusha riding a colt. followed by mother ass. and a whole entourage of His disciples!” What is this!

 

The crowd became ecstatic; the town was in a tumult. They shouted, “Hosanna in the Highest! Blessed is he who comes in the name of our Lord! Blessed be the kingdom of our father David that is coming! Hosanna in the Highest!” Jumping in glee they threw off their cloaks, so that the Messiah could ride over on a garment-laden path. Yes, said the Zealots, this is our man! We have sealed the perimeters of the city, and the revolt is ripe to take the city in the name of Yahuah. Yes, said the Sicarii, we have waited for him. Now we can destroy the hated Romans and the traitorous temple leaders, the Herodians, and the Sadducees, who have played into and have been bought by the blood money of the Romans. Yes, said the peasants and the populous! Here is the Messiah, who will bring in the Kingdom of the God of Israel. The crowds thronged behind Yahusha as he headed south to the Temple Mount and the Royal Stoa. The people, the cohanim were swept up in vast tide of humanity. Guess what?

 

Caiphas, the high priest was returning from the northern fields with the Passover Lamb in hand and as he entered the northern Damascus Gate, the street was empty. What’s going on! When he hears that Rabbi Yahusha has entered the city as a royal aspirant to the throne of David, the Messiah who is come, he was furious.

 

Type met antitype at this moment. The Passover Lamb met the Lamb of Yahuah!

 

Yahusha on the other hand, passed under the Robinson’s Archway of the Royal Causeway and dismounted at the base of the assent to the Royal Stoa of the Temple. Up the vast gateway he climbed. This entry gate was awe-inspiring with polished limestone capped with fold plated Corinthian capitals. Into the Royal Stoa, he strode. It was a long hallway projected out before him with four broad columned aisles. There in the quietness of the Royal Stoa, in the stillness of the hour, in the temple of his Father, he prayed. It was getting late, so he left the Temple and walked over to Bethany.

 

The 11th of Nisan –Yahusha Throws out the Moneychangers

 

The next day, Yahusha returned to Jerusalem and entered the temple. Along the street the merchants were setting up their stalls to begin the commercial activity of the day. The lower market was a very busy area. There were cheeses in mounds, baskets with all manner of fruit in them, jars with wine and various types of grain bread lying in piles on the side. Merchants from the east were unloading a wagon of silk, as farmers and traders jostled as they weaved in and out of the crowds. Here they came to a large plaza with a monumental stairway leading up to the double gate of the temple mount.

Straight ahead was the main entry into the Temple courts. This area should have been an area of peaceful repose, to bring one into a spirit of meditation before entering the House of the Yahuah. Yet instead of the quiet meditation, He remembered there in the Royal Stoa, there was frenzied commotion. The clanging sounds and rabble of commercial activity abound. To the right and left were the moneychangers, exchanging the coin of the empire, each bearing the image of Caesar into the silver temple shekel. The walls were lined with small cages of doves and pigeons, where the newly delivered moms were bargaining for a thank offering to celebrate the happy conclusion of their pregnancy. Oxen and sheep were lining the halls bellowing in the aroma of a barnyard. Let us imagine the Houston Live Stock Show in the grandeur of the Temple of God, and we can visualize in part what Yahusha saw.

 

Yahusha squinted his eyes and then His face began to flush with anger. He picked up a whip and began overturning tables, chasing out the merchants, with sheep, oxen, and pigeons careening in three directions. In a provocative show of force, he threw out the money exchangers and the commerce in the temple courts suddenly ceased.

 

The 11th to the 13th of Nisan – the Attempted Revolt by the Zealots

 

For three days, the sacrificial system ceased (enraging the Temple Elite costing them a fortune) and it appeared that Yahusha had full control of the Temple compound. He spent the time preaching and healing the masses of pilgrims.

With an estimated one million attendees to the Passover, a three-day shutdown was a major financial blow to the high priest Caiphas and the House of Ananus, along with the Sadducean authorities, who made millions of shekels for their own personal bank portfolios. Yet the Sadducean Temple guards, and the Roman cohort of troops (about 500), made no attempt to arrest Yahusha because they feared the people who were in sympathetic support of the ministry of Yahusha (this is ‘why’ Yahusha had to orchestrate his execution at night on the Eve of Passover because he knew they would have to try him in private and quickly).

Matthew 21:46-46

“Now when the chief priests and Pharisees heard His parables, they perceived that He was speaking of them. But when they sought to lay hands on Him, they feared the multitudes, because they took Him for a prophet.”

Was Yahusha the Nazarene an armed revolutionary? No! Though anti-Christian literature later would depict Him as such, we must understand the political and seething cauldron that Jerusalem was in that day. The Zealots as can be suspected (Luke 23:19) took advantage of the political environment to seal the perimeters of the city, in hopes of staging a political coup. They were hoping to force Yahusha to make a rightful claim to the throne of David. Knowing His allegiance with the multitudes, His powers over nature, His ability to heal, and raise the dead to life, there was every expectation that this claimant, Yahusha, would succeed and lay full claim to the Messianic legacy.

Everything appears to go as planned by the Zealots. Yet Yahusha, when he took control of the temple complex, instead of making an armed political coup against the Sadducean Temple Guard and the limited Roman garrison in the Antonia Tower, He instead began to heal the sick and minister to the spiritual and physical needs of the people. A live proclamation of the true “Kingdom of God” was demonstrated during those three days prior to the Passover feast in the courtyard of the temple. There was always swift retribution to any aspirant to the throne of David by the Romans, yet Yahusha, recently anointed in Bethany, made a peaceful yet highly visible entrance as a new claimant to the throne of David. The governor of Judea, the Procurator Pilate, would later say, “I find no fault in him (he was found innocent of violence).” That a revolt was thwarted is known by the legal swap of Bar-Abbas, the grandson of Judas of Galilee, the famed revolutionary in 6 CE, who revolted with the census of Rome. Now his grandson was plotting an armed revolutionary overthrow of the Roman. While Bar-Abbas was set free, Yahusha was hung on a tree with two of Bar-Abbas’ revolutionists.

 

By the 14th of Nisan, the Zealot forces went into retreat without the full support of Yahusha and the thousands of the supporters of His cause. Yahusha had come as the “Prince of Peace” not as a fiery messianic warlord, like David. The revolt in the making fizzled out. The price of the failed revolt, was the lifeless body of Judas, hanging from a tree in a potter’s field.

 

The Four Days of Inspection

According to the Mosaic instructions on the observance of the Passover, the lamb was to be inspected by the High Priest and cohanim for four days before the Passover slaying of the lamb. For four days, Yahusha was also inspected, interrogated, accosted, intimidated, and challenged by the Pharisees, scribes and lawyers.

From the 11th to the 14th of Nisan, the Passover Lamb stood in the inner temple arena and was scrutinized by the high priest and Sadducees. On these same four days, Yahusha stood in the outer courts of the temple, ministering to the populous and repeatedly responding to the inspecting challenges by the rabbinic masters of law, halakhah, temple authority, and religious dogma, or eventually in the judgment hall of Pilate listening to the slanderous accusations against Him.

 

What was the Nature of these Challenges by the Pharisees, Herodians, Sadducees, and Scribes

 

The first challenge against Yahusha was on the authority of Yahusha, and who gave Him his authority? (Matt 21:23-27, Mark, 11: 27-33, Luke 20:1-8)

Yahusha’ rebuttal was initiated by telling the parable of the landowner of the vineyard, whose tenants slew the land owner’s son. (Matt 21:33-46, Mark 12:1-12, Luke 20:9-19)

 

Yahusha then spoke a parable of the king preparing a wedding feast for his son, the heir apparent. The invitees to the feast either ignored the invitation or killed the servants who brought the invitation. A guest without a wedding garment is cast out. (Matt 22:1-14)

 

The second challenge was concerning three questions by the Pharisees, Herodians, and scribes to Yahusha and the one question by Yahusha to his challengers.

 

The first question was by the Pharisees and Herodians concerning paying taxes to Caesar. (Matthew 22: 15-22, Mark 12:13-17, Luke 20:20-26)

 

The second question was from the Sadducees concerning the resurrection (Matthew 22:23-33, Mark 12:18-27, Luke 20:27-38)

 

The third question was from the scribes about the great commandment. (Matthew 2:34-40, Mark 12:28-43, Luke 20:39,40)

 

Yahusha then sent the challenge to the Pharisees, scribes and Herodians concerning the Messiah’s ancestry. (Matthew 22:41-46, Mark 12:35-37, Luke 20:41-44) In a final rebuttal, Yahusha proclaimed the “woes” upon the scribes and pharisees. (Matt 23:1-39, Mark 12:38-40, Luke 20:45-47)

 

And so while the selected Pesach lamb was being examined by the temple authorities, during these same three days Yahusha was scrutinized on whether his teachings were according to the halakhah of the Torah. He was challenged on his spiritual and ancestral authority plus his civil responsibility as a dependent of Rome. Here he met face to face with his accusers which included: the temple lawyers, the scribal codifiers of the law, the Pharisees of the House of Shammai who controlled the Synagogues in Judea in this era, the controlling Sadducean authorities of the House of Ananus and the Herodians who ruled parts of Judea as administrative representatives of Rome.

 

In the inner courts, the high priest could find no fault with the selected Passover Lamb and on the 14th of Nisan, Passover, slew him on the altar of the Lord. On the outer courts of the Temple, the religious leaders and the civil governor could find no fault in Yahusha, and hung Him on one of two sites: the Mount of Olives at the site of where the “red heifer” was burnt and the ashes were collected or on Mount Moriah where Abraham slew the goat in substitution for his son, Isaac on the altar to the Lord.

 

You see, today we have forgotten what our King did for us that Passover.  He literally arranged every aspect of his death to ensure he “willingly gave his life” and that it could not be seen as a human sacrifice… but an obedient “living sacrifice” in love by The Coming King of Kings who must die to be found worthy to rule… exactly “on time” as the Age of Aries transitioned to The Age of Pisces and “the lamb died”…

PISCES: The Redeemer’s people multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, the Bridegroom is exalted. ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy, the Bride is made ready

A LAMB THAT WAS SLAIN FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD

Now you know… “the rest of the story“!

The “Word became Flesh” false doctrine … by Rav Sha’ul the Nazarene

The Word became flesh and dwelt among us! …
Not so fast… John 1:14 in context


In my teaching of John 1, I am going to address THE false teaching that Yahusha is a demi-god. The foundation of the Trinity and worship of a sinful mortal man who died (idolatry Romans 1).

Fullness of Time or The Time of Fulfillment … by Rav Sha’ul the Nazarene …

Fullness of Time?
The “time of the fulfillment” of The Heavenly Scroll has come!


Introduction


We read in

Galatians 4:4
"But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law"

Ask 100 teachers and you’ll get 100 different answers as to what “fullness of time” actually means. Let me provide the key to this question as it is, as always, found IN CONTEXT.

Hebrew is read right to left but the translators conveniently ignored that in many cases such as in Isaiah 9:6 they translated “everlasting Father” to promote the Trinity when in Hebrew it reads “Father everlasting” in the same way Abraham is “father faith” in Hebrew. We understand Abraham is the forefather of our faith, In the same way, Isaiah 9:6 should be translated and understood as Yahusha is the Forefather of Everlasting Life. That is another teaching altogether.  My point is the way the translators chose to phrase the words and the words they chose.  They did so to confuse the issue, use passive voice, anything they could do to create confusion to “false doctrines” could be taught out of context.

In the case of Gal. 4:4-7 if it were properly handled it would read “time of fulfillment” not “fullness of time” which is confusing and lends little to our understanding. The word translated “fullness” means “fulfillment” and that makes MUCH more sense…

Stonge's 4138. pléróma - def: Short Definition: fullness, fulfillment, completion.

So, in the “time of fulfillment” Yahuah sent Yahusha to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll ‘in the flesh” as prophesied by the Prophet Daniel, laid out specifically in The Heavenly Scroll, and proclaimed by John in John Chapter 1… Yahusha came, as Sha’ul stated, “right on time” to fulfill the Logos/Dabar/Spoken Promise in the beginning known as The Heavenly Scroll and as the Scroll proclaims eternal life springs from his death at the end of the Age of Aries and beginning of Pisces.

Romans 1
2 concerning Yahusha, which Yahuah PROMISED (definition of Logos/Debar) beforehand (in the stars and Psalms 19) through His prophets in the holy Scriptures 3 concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh, 4 who was declared (Divine) the Son of Yahuah with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness (Yahuah’s Spiritual Seed), Yahusha the Messiah (the Branch).

So, let’s apply a little thing called CONTEXT to what Sha’ul said. We see Yahusha agreed! He proclaimed the “Gospel of Yahuah” which is written in the stars of a coming King, then said, “TIME IS FULFILLED“. Time of what to be fulfilled?… The Kingdom of Heaven or The Kingdom proclaimed in Shamayim/stars … has arrived.

Mark 1
14 Yahusha went into Galilee and proclaimed the gospel of Yahuah (The Word of His Testimony). 15 “THE TIME (of the Gospel of Yahuah) IS FULFILLED", He said, “and the kingdom (proclaimed) in (The) Heaven(ly Scroll) is near. Repent and believe in the gospel (that Yahuah has fulifilled His Promise in Yahusha)!”

Sha’ul re-enforced this understanding again…

Ephesians 1:10
as a plan (Logos/Debar) for the fullness of time, to bring all things proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll and fulfilled on earth in Yahusha.

Yahuah created the Universe through Yahusha? Or to give to Yahusha as an Inheritance as His firstborn son?… by Rav Sha’ul the Nazarene …

 

Yahuah steps foot on the Mt. of Olives? No. True interpretation and meaning of Zechariah 14:3-4 …. by Rav Sha’ul the Nazarene …

It is Yahuah who steps foot on Mt. Mariah ! …
No!  It is The Son of Man. 


 

Taking the Kingdom by FORCE! … by Rav Sha’ul (the Nazarene) …

 

Did Sha’ul deny Yahuah as The Creator? Colossians 1 in context … by Rav Sha’ul (the Nazarene) …

Colossians 1 in full context … The Truth 


1 Paul, an apostle of Yahusha the Messiah by the will of Yahuah (proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll),

Psalm 119
89 Your word, Yahuah, is eternal; it stands firm (written) in the heaven(ly Scroll).

Hebrews 10:7
Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the heavenly scroll-- I have come to do your will, my God! (Matthew 6:10)

Matthew 6:10
Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is (written) in (the) heaven(ly scroll).

and Timothy our brother, 2 To Yahuah’s holy people in Colossae, the faithful brothers and sisters in covenant with Yahusha: Grace and peace to you from Yahuah our Father.


NOTE:
Now Sha’ul gives Yahuah alone Glory found in The Heavenly Scroll (the Word of His Testimony)


3 We always thank Yahuah, the Father of our King Yahusha the Messiah, when we pray for you, 4 because we have heard of your faith in The Yahushaic Covenant and of the love you have for all Yahuah’s people— 5 the faith and love that spring from the hope stored up for you in The Heavenly Scroll and about which you have already heard (proclaimed) in (the stars Psalm 19 and Galatians 3) which (The Heavenly Scroll) is the true message of the gospel (it is The Word of His Testimony which Sha’ul taught exclusively 1 Cor. 2)

1 Corinthians 2 - Sha’ul speaking to former pagans who knew and abused the Zodiac

1 And so it was with me, brothers and sisters. When I came to you, I did not come with eloquence or human wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony of Yahuah (about Yahusha written in the stars). 2 For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Yahusha the Messiah and him crucified (before the foundation of the world written in the stars before our very eyes Galatians 3). ... 7 we declare Yahuah’s wisdom (Matthew 11:25), a mystery that has been hidden (from the foundation of the world in the Heavenly Scroll Enoch 6:9) and that Yahuah destined for our glory before time began (writing it in the stars on day 4 of creation).

6 that (message hidden in The Heavenly Scroll before time began 1 Cor. 2:7) has come to you in the same way (preached by the stars as a witness to all mankind Psalm 19), the gospel is bearing fruit and growing throughout the whole world (as humanity is without excuse Galatians 3)—

Galatians 3
1 You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you (twisting the Zodiac into witchcraft Enoch 9:6)? Before your very eyes (in The Heavenly Scroll) Yahusha the Messiah was clearly portrayed as crucified (a lamb that is slaughtered) …7 Understand then (what is foretold in the stars), that those who have faith (in the message contained in the stars Romans 10:17 which is Yahuah's Eternal Witness of Yahusha Psalm 119:89) are children of Abraham. 8 Scripture (the word written in the heavens Psalm 119:89) foresaw (from the foundation of the world) that Yahuah would justify the Gentiles by faith (and reconsile all things back to himself), and Yahuah announced the gospel in advance to Abraham (via The Heavenly Scroll Genesis 15:5; saying): “All nations will be blessed through you (Sha'ul quotes Gen 15:5 where Yahuah witnessed to Abraham via The Heavenly Scroll).”

Romans 10:17
Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message (proclaimed in the stars Gen 15:5), and the message is heard through the word about the Messiah (what "word" about Yahusha? Sha'ul now quotes Psalm 19). 18 But I ask: Did they not hear (what the stars proclaim night after night, day after day Psalms 19)? Of course they did: “Their voice (constellations) has gone out into all the earth, their words (concerning Yahusha) to the ends of the world.”

just as it has been doing among you since the day you heard it and truly understood Yahuah’s grace (who has fulfilled The Heavenly Scroll/Debar in Yahusha as prophesied John 1) 7 You learned it from Epaphras, our dear fellow servant, who is a faithful minister of The Yahushaic Covenant on our behalf, 8 and who also told us of your love in the Spirit.

9 For this reason (accepting The Word of His Testimony fulfilled in Yahusha John 1), since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask Yahuah to fill you with the knowledge of His will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, 10 so that you may live a life worthy of the King of Creation (Yahuah) and please Yahuah in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of Yahuah, 11 being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might (that he exerted when He fulfilled His Promises and raised Yahusha from the dead Ephesians 1:19-20)

Ephesians 1
19 and the surpassing greatness of Yahuah’s power to us who believe. Yahuah displayed this power in the working of His mighty strength, 20 which Yahuah exerted in Yahusha when Yahuah raised Yahusha from the dead and (THEN) seated Yahusha at His right hand in the heavenly realms (on the Throne in The Heavenly Scroll),  21 far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this Age of Pisces (The Messianic Age), but also in the Age of Aquarius to come (The Kingdom Age).

so that you may have great endurance and patience, 12 and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you (by walking The Way) to share in the inheritance of His holy people in the kingdom of light (a metaphor for The Heavenly Scroll). 13 For Yahuah has rescued us from the dominion of darkness (Ba’al Shamayim has taken the Throne in Heaven by force… Isaiah 14:13-14 and  Matthew 11:12 the corrupted version of The Heavenly Scroll source of all deception) and brought us into the kingdom of the (first born-again, risen Divine Romans 1:2-4) Son Yahuah loves, 14 in covenant with Yahusha we have redemption (from death), the forgiveness of sins (the death decrees are covered in The Yahushaic Covenant/by his blood which consumates that covenant where Yahuah ‘forgives our iniquity and remembers our sin no more’).


NOTE:
Now Sha’ul uses the technique of “comparison/contrast” to establish the difference in Glory between Yahuah the Creator, and Yahusha the firstborn who will inherit creation. Sha’ul goes back and forth as he makes his comparison but the Bible was Hellenized and made very vague by the use of passive voice (him, his, he) instead of using proper names, this was intentional by the Greeks (lying pen of the pagan Scribes) so that these false doctrines could easily be established in Scripture through sound bites and twisting of the meaning.
Sha’ul Begins with Yahusha… he is not Yahuah in the flesh he is the perfected (through discipline and sanctification) Spiritual Image (Righteous Mindset/Character) of Yahuah and did not exist with Yahuah at creation but is the firstborn of eternal creation being the first fruits of the resurrection.

15 The Son Yahusha (and all sons Psalms 82:6 and Genesis 1:27) is the image of the invisible Yahuah (we must conform to that image too, so that he becomes), the firstborn over all (eternal) creation (by the power of the resurrection when he is given pre-eminence among all the eternal sons and he is the firstborn of the resurrection, the firstborn of the dead, the first fruits of the grave NOT physical creation).

Romans 1
 2 concerning Yahusha, which Yahuah promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures (both The Heavenly and Earthly Scrolls, he did not pre-exist), 3 concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David (through both parents) according to the flesh (flesh 'Sarki' g4561: Thayer's def =#4 - born to two human parents, outside ANY Divine Influence, prone to sin, and opposed to Yahuah), 4 who was declared (Divine) the Son of Yahuah with power by the resurrection from the dead (Ephesians 1:19-21), according to the Spirit of holiness (Yahuah’s Spiritual Seed given as an earnest gurantee when he was adopted by walking The Way of Mikveh), Yahusha the Messiah, …

NOTE:
Now Sha’ul stresses that Yahuah, on the other hand, is not the firstborn of the resurrection, but was before all things… and He is The Creator and that this Creation was created to be given to His Children through inheritance see verse 12, Yahusha the firstborn and heir to Creation NOT The Creator.

16 For in Yahuah all things were created (Isaiah 44:24, Isaiah 45:5-18, Isaiah 42:5):

Isaiah 44
24 “This is what Yahuah says— your Redeemer, who formed you in the womb: I am Yahuah, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself.

Isaiah 42
5 This is what Yahuah says— He who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and all that comes out of it, who gives breath to its people, and life to those who walk on it:

Isaiah 45
5 I am Yahuah, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God. 7 I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, Yahuah, do all these things. 12 It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts. 18 For this is what Yahuah says— He who created the heavens, He (alone) is God; He who fashioned and made the earth, He founded it; He did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— He says: "I am Yahuah, and there is no other (God)."

things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through Yahuah (His Word “let there be light” in Gen. 1:1) and for Yahusha (verse 12 as an inheritance Romans 8:16-17 for His firstborn son to rule over Creation as King over the GOVERNMENT that will govern creation Isaiah 9:6 and Daniel 7:13-14).

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 (through discipline Hebrews 12:4-11) MAKE the pioneer of their salvation (he shows us The Way and went before us, he is the Forefather of Everlasting Life Isaiah 6:9) PERFECT (he was not born perfect, Yahuah MADE him perfect through sanctification) through what he suffered.

1 Corinthians 8:6 yet for us there is but ONE God the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we exist (Yahuah is The Creator and we exist to be His Children). And there is but one King, Yahusha the Messiah, for whom all things were created (as an inheritance) and through whom we exist (in covenant as Yahuah reconciled us back to Himself via a Mediating High Priest 1 Timothy 2:5). 

Romans 11:36 For from Yahuah and through Yahusha and to (reconcile to) Yahuah all things. To Yahuah be the glory forever! 

Isaiah 9:6-7 "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government shall be on his shoulders and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, (the perfect image of) Mighty God, (for) Father of Everlasting (life, firstborn of the dead, first fruits of the grave), and Prince of (the Covenant of) Peace (Numbers 25)."  There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the Throne of David and over His Kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. 

Romans 8:16-17 "The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of YHVH, and if children, then heirs -- heirs of YHVH and joint heirs with the Messiah, if indeed we suffer with him (Yahusha), that we may also be glorified together (Yahusha did not preexist, he is glorified and given his inheritance the same time we are by the power of the resurrection)." 

Daniel 7 13 “I kept looking in the night visions (he was looking at the stars), and behold (in The Heavenly Scroll), with the clouds of heaven One (Orion) like a Son of Man (Orion represents the Messian in The Heavenly Scroll) was coming, (now Daniel reads the message in The Heavenly Scroll) And He (The Messiah) came up to the Ancient of Days (Yahuah, they are NOT the same being and Yahusha is NOT "the ancient of days") And Yahusha was presented before Yahuah. 14 “And to Him (Yahusha) was given (by Yahuah as an inheritance) dominion, Glory and a kingdom, that all the peoples, nations and men of every language Might serve Him (not worship Yahusha, we serve Yahusha in The Kingdom). His dominion (As King over the Government that governs creation) is an everlasting dominion which will not pass away; and His kingdom is one which will not be destroyed.

17 Yahuah is before all things, and in Yahuah all things hold together (by His command “let there be” in Genesis 1)


Now Sha’ul changes back to Yahusha in contrast, Yahusha is not “before all things and creator” he is the first-born son of the resurrection, the chief cornerstone of Yahuah’s Temple not The Creator.  Yahuah sits on the Throne of Creation, Yahusha sits at His Right Hand as King over the GOVERNMENT that will govern his Father’s House see Zechariah Chapter 3.

18 And (in contrast) Yahusha is (not before ALL things but he is) the head of the body, the Chief Cornerstone of Yahuah’s Temple; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything (in Yahuah’s Eternal Creation) he might have the preeminence (as heir, forefather of everylasting life, and King over the Government Isaiah 9:6).

Romans 8:19
“Creation eagerly awaits the revelation of the sons of YHVH”… vs. 21 “when creation will be set free form bondage and come into the glorious freedom of the sons of YHVH (we govern creation)”

19 For Yahuah was pleased (Matthew 3:17)

Matthew 3:17
And a voice from heaven (After Yahusha had been adopted through Mikveh) said, "This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.

to have all his fullness dwell in him (after he was adopted through Mikveh and born-again and the Spirit given as an earnest guarantee he would be raised from the dead Matthew 3:16),

Matthew 3:16
 16 As soon as Yahusha was Mikveh’d (clean of his sin Ezekiel 36) with Living Water (to fulfill all Righteous Requirements of The Law), He went up out of the living water. Suddenly the heavens were opened, and he saw the Spirit of Yahuah descending like a dove and resting on Him (he was filled with the fullness of deity Colossians 2:9 as are we ALL who walk The Way of Mikveh Ephesians 3:19).

Colossians 2:9
For in (covenant with) Yahusha all the fullness of Deity dwells in bodily form (after Mikveh, we are Mikveh'd into The Yahushaic Covenant Matthew 29:19).

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 (in covenant with Yahusha).

20 and in covenant with Yahusha (we are ALL filled with the fullness of deity Ephesians 3:19) to reconcile to himself (back to Yahuah) all things (Yahuah Created), whether things on earth or things in heaven (verse 16), by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross (to consummate The Covenant of Peace, mediate as Eternal High Priest, and atone for us Numbers 25:12).

Numbers 25:12
Therefore say, ‘Behold, I give to him My covenant of peace; 13 and it shall be to him and his descendants after him a covenant of an everlasting priesthood, because he was zealous for his God, and made atonement for the children of Israel.’”

21 Once you were alienated from Yahuah and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior (in the flesh). 22 But now Yahuah has reconciled you by (following The Way demonstrated by) Yahusha’s physical body (he gave as a Sin Offering) through death to present you holy in his sight (washed clean with Living Water Ephesians 5:25-27), (a Bride) without blemish and free from accusation (because you followed The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering and Yahuah has ‘forgiven your iniquity and remembers your sin on more’ the promise of The Yahushaic Covenant Jeremiah 31)—

Ephesians 5
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Yahusha (the Groom) loved the Bride and gave himself up for her (as a sin offering to show us The Way by example) 26 to make her holy (through sanctification), cleansing her by the washing with Living water (Mikveh) according to the word (promise Yahuah made in Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 36 to cleanse our sin with living water), 27 and to present her to himself as a radiant Bride, (Passover Lambs) without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but holy and blameless (by walking The Way of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering).

23 if you continue in your faith (that Yahuah has forgiven your iniquity and remembers your sin no more by walking The Way in covenant with Yahusha as your mediating High Priest), established and firm, and do not move from the hope held out in the gospel (proclaimed in the stars). This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven (Psalm 19), and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.


End of Colossians 1

This is how the Scriptures are supposed to be taught.  Line upon line, precept upon precept to overcome The Dragon who has twisted them into Greek, mistranslated them into English and causes us to deny Yahuah’s Glory as Creator and blaspheme His immortal invisible Spirit.

Sha’ul is teaching the same message in Hebrews 2

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 (through discipline Hebrews 12:4-11) MAKE the pioneer of their salvation (he shows us The Way and went before us, he is the Forefather of Everlasting Life Isaiah 6:9) PERFECT (he was not born perfect, Yahuah MADE him perfect through sanctification) through what he suffered. 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. So Yahusha is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters… 14 Since the children (of Yahuah) have flesh and blood (are all born according to the flesh and sinful), he too shared in their humanity (he was a sinful human too and had to offer his sinful flesh) so that by his death (the death of a man not God) he might break the power of him who holds the power of death (defeat The Law of Sin and Death by dying innocent by walking The Way)—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death (because he showed us all how to defeat death by walking The Way to perfection ourselves). 16 For surely it is not angels Yahusha helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason he had to be made like them (he was made human just like I was and sinful), 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… Hebrews 5:1) in service to Yahuah (AFTER his sin was forgiven Zechariah Chapter 3), and that he might make atonement for HIS SIN and the sins of the people (Hebrews 5:3). 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted (proof he was not Yahuah, Yahuah cannot be tempted by evil), he is able to help those who are being tempted (because he was NOT a god, he did sin, and he was perfected in obedience by suffering discipline known as sanctification).
