In this thread i will explore how Jesus is Yahweh. In fact there are many, many times in the new testament alone that Jesus claimed to be the Heavenly
Father Yahweh, the LORD Almighty, the Most High. In fact, it was these claims that caused the pharisees to try to kill him on several occasions by
stoning and they even tried to throw him off a cliff in an attempt to shut him up.
5“Behold, the days are coming,” says the Lord,
“That I will raise to David a Branch of righteousness;
A King shall reign and prosper,
And execute judgment and righteousness in the earth.
6 In His days Judah will be saved,
Now this is His name by which He will be called:
THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
So, this King is the Messiah, the King of Kings, he who came to the Lost Sheep of Israel
5 So I said:“Woe is me, for I am undone!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King,
so Yahweh is the King of Israel, yet Yeshua (Jesus) is the King of Kings, the King of Israel
John 8: 56-59
56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”
57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”
58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.
Wait a minute, Yahweh told Moses that he is I AM, yet Jesus says he is I AM, he who stood before Abraham and the I AM who stood before
14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” And He said, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel, ‘I AM has sent me to you.’” 15
Moreover God said to Moses, “Thus you shall say to the children of Israel: ‘The Lord God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac,
and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. This is My name forever, and this is My memorial to all generations.’
Amazing, so Yahweh says I AM is his name forever, yet the pharisees repeatedly tried to kill Jesus when he claimed to be I AM, So Jesus was
claiming to be Yahweh in John 8, and the same I AM who stood before Abraham was the same I AM who stood before Moses
At that time Jesus went through the grainfields on the Sabbath. And His disciples were hungry, and began to pluck heads of grain and to eat. 2 And
when the Pharisees saw it, they said to Him, “Look, Your disciples are doing what is not lawful to do on the Sabbath!”
3 But He said to them, “Have you not read what David did when he was hungry, he and those who were with him: 4 how he entered the house of God and
ate the showbread which was not lawful for him to eat, nor for those who were with him, but only for the priests? 5 Or have you not read in the law
that on the Sabbath the priests in the temple profane the Sabbath, and are blameless? 6 Yet I say to you that in this place there is One greater than
the temple. 7 But if you had known what this means, ‘I desire mercy and not sacrifice,’
you would not have condemned the guiltless. 8
For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath.”
Who is this that has the power to declare he desires mercy? Who can command the Sabbath but he who made it?
9 Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name
, 10 that at the name of Jesus every knee should
bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth
11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to
the glory of God the Father.
Wow, so every knee will bow and every tongue confess, of those in Heaven, the living and the dead on earth that Jesus is Lord...amazing, even the
dead say it.
Isaiah 45: 14-15
14 Thus says Yahweh:“The labor of Egypt and merchandise of Cush And of the Sabeans, men of stature,Shall come over to you, and they shall be
yours;They shall walk behind you,They shall come over in chains; And they shall bow down to you.They will make supplication to you, saying,
‘Surely God is in you, And there is no other;There is no other God.’”15 Truly You are God, who hide Yourself, O God of Israel, the
But...Jesus is the Savior
Revelation 1: 4-8
John, to the seven churches which are in Asia:
Grace to you and peace from Him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven Spirits who are before His throne, 5 and from Jesus Christ,
the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler over the kings of the earth.
To Him who loved us and washed[a] us from our sins in His own blood, 6 and has made us kings and priests to His God and Father, to Him be glory and
dominion forever and ever. Amen.
7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him.
Even so, Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Here again, Jesus says he is Yahweh, the Creator who was before Abraham, was here on earth 2000 years ago, and who shall return, please note that
"the Lord" replaced the true word YHWH
John 10: 11-14
11 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. 12 But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not
own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. 13 The hireling flees because he
is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own.
Hm, so Jesus is the Good Shepherd who owns the sheep. Wow Yahweh makes the same claims in the old testament
Disaster for the shepherds who lose and scatter the sheep of my pasture, Yahweh declares. This, therefore, is what Yahweh, God of Israel, says
about the shepherds who shepherd my people, 'You have scattered my flock, you have driven them away and have not taken care of them. Right, I shall
take care of you for your misdeeds, Yahweh declares! But the remnant of my flock I myself shall gather from all the countries where I have driven
them, and bring them back to their folds; they will be fruitful and increase in numbers. For them I shall raise up shepherds to shepherd them and
I shall assemble the whole of Jacob, I shall gather the remnant of Israel, I shall gather them together like sheep in an enclosure. And like a flock
within the fold, they will bleat far away from anyone, their leader will break out first, then all break out through the gate and escape, with their
king leading the way and with Yahweh at their head.
For the Lord Yahweh says this: 'Look, I myself shall take care of my flock and look after it. As a shepherd looks after his flock when he is with his
scattered sheep, so shall I look after my sheep. [...] 'I shall raise up one shepherd, my servant David, and put him in charge of them to pasture
them; he will pasture them and be their shepherd.'
Ezekiel 34:11-12 & 23
Sorry, i don't have the room to put the hundreds of pages down bearing witness.
