I don't understand how you can be close to God and not Yeshua when Yeshua is YHWH. That's making me
10 “You are My witnesses,” says the Lord,
“And My servant whom I have chosen,
That you may know and believe Me,
And understand that I am He.
Before Me there was no God formed,
Nor shall there be after Me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord,
And besides Me there is no savior.
12 I have declared and saved,
I have proclaimed,
And there was no foreign god among you;
Therefore you are My witnesses,”
Says the Lord, “that I am God.
13 Indeed before the day was, I am He;
And there is no one who can deliver out of My hand;
I work, and who will reverse it?”
Even Jeremiah proclaims him.
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,
And Israel will dwell safely;
Now this is His name by which He will be called:
THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS Translates as YHWH Tsidkenu in hebrew. Messiah's name is YHWH (Yeshua/Jesus).
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 My words?”
The NT hadn't been writen when Yeshua spoke this, only the Torah and Tenach (OT/Hebrew Bible), so the scriptures that spoke of him was the OT, and
Moses wrote of Him with Adam, Abraham and Moses. What are they teaching you in that church? How can you not be close to Yeshua/YHWH when he is the one
who saved you?
