I stumbled onto something truly amazing that i didn't think of, and it took a messianic jew to point this in my face. We christians often read the
bible, and think of it as if it speaks soley to us, but at the time the scriptures were written there was only the Tenach (Old Testament), So when
Jesus says "you search the scriptures for you think that in them you have eternal life, but they are those which bear witness of ME". He said that
from the very beginning no one had seen the father's shape nor heard his voice until he was baptised...
...That shows you from the very beginning it was always Him! It was always him with Moses, who guided them in the desert 40 years, it was always him
with Abraham and it was he whom Abraham spoke with when he sent the 2 angels to investigate Sodom and Gomorrah before he delivered judgement. It was
him who walked with Adama and he who created Adam.
John 5: 31-47
31 “If I bear witness of Myself, My witness is not true. 32 There is another who bears witness of Me, and I know that the witness which He witnesses
of Me is true. 33 You have sent to John, and he has borne witness to the truth. 34 Yet I do not receive testimony from man, but I say these things
that you may be saved. 35 He was the burning and shining lamp, and you were willing for a time to rejoice in his light. 36 But I have a greater
witness than John’s; for the works which the Father has given Me to finish—the very works that I do—bear witness of Me, that the Father has sent
Me. 37 And the Father Himself, who sent Me, has testified of Me. You have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His form. 38 But you do
not have His word abiding in you, because whom He sent, Him you do not believe. 39 You search the Scriptures, for in them you think you have
eternal life; and these are they which testify of Me. 40 But you are not willing to come to Me that you may have life.
41 “I do not receive honor from men. 42 But I know you, that you do not have the love of God in you. 43 I have come in My Father’s name, and you
do not receive Me; if another comes in his own name, him you will receive. 44 How can you believe, who receive honor from one another, and do not seek
the honor that comes from the only God? 45 Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you—Moses, in whom you
trust. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe
He makes an appearance to Abraham in Genesis 18, one of the 3 whom Abraham talks to while sitting in the shade in the doorway of his tent, the one he
speaks to and tries to intercede for Sodom and Gomorrah is pre-incarnate Yeshua or as he is known then YHWH or IEUE.
So the Torah is about Yeshua (Jesus). Lets see what Yeshua tells him his name is back then, what he tells Moses at the burning bush:
13 Then Moses said to God, “Indeed, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, ‘The God of your fathers has sent me to you,’ and
they say to me, ‘What is His name?’ what shall I say to them?”
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.’
So "I AM WHO I AM" in hebrew/aramaic translates as YHWH/YHVH and in paleo-hebrew that predates the ancient hebrew spoken of in Christ's time here
on earth...IEUE. Abraham was seeing YHWH, who is pre-incarnate Yeshua as was Moses and as did Adam and Enoch also see.
Who did Yeshua claim to be?
John 8: 58-59
48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”
49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. 50 And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and
judges. 51 Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.”
52 Then the Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word he
shall never taste death.’ 53 Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Who do You make Yourself out to
54 Jesus answered, “If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is your God. 55 Yet you have not
known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word. 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.
What is the "Lord's Day"? The Sabbath (Day of Rest) is his day. Did Yeshua ever claim the Sabbath as his own? Let's see what Mathew says:
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.”
In Matthew 12 Yeshua is telling them that he has authority over the Law and he is explaining to them that Moral Law supercedes Ceremonial law. He used
David as an example to say that there was no sin for David stealing the showbread that was not lawful for him to take for it was to preserve life. All
things belong to YHWH. Being merciful, kind and forgiving with what is his shows proper stewardship.
For those who picked up on the Sodom and Gomorrah theme, if homosexuality was an abomination to him back then, then it still is to this day. God does
not change his ways for anyone. He is the same today as he was from the beginning. He is loving and merciful but there are things he will not tolerate
and things he considers detestable are one of them. Those who advocate he condones homosexuality are decieving themselves. Yes homosexuals can be
saved like all people but they must ask forgiveness and repent, not return to that old life like a dog to it's own vomit. The word Repent means
to change your mind and no longer do the things you once did, not do them like you have a license for licentiousness.
