There is a vital disconnect in the
family of Yahuah in these last days. A misunderstanding of the Plan of
Salvation. We are being taught that Yahuah had to come to Earth as a man and
die! This is necessary (so they say), because of His own Law preventing
a husband from remarrying the same bride. Only the death of the husband
releases Yahuah from this “Law”. The problem is, not only is it impossible for
an Eternal being to die (that is what makes Him a God and Eternal in the first
place, but Yahuah made a Vow never to come to Earth as a man. He swore He would
never break that Vow… and swore twice for emphasis! Yahuah does not break
His Vows so we have a problem!

will I devastate Ephraim again. For I am Yahuah, and not a man
19 "Yahuah is not a man, that He should
lie, nor a son of man (Yahusha is called the son of
man 87 times), that He should
repent (Yahusha went to Yahchanan to be Mikveh’d
for remission of sin); Has He
said (He would never come to Earth as a man),
and will He not do it (keep this Vow)?
Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good (on
In Numbers 23:19,
Yahuah made a Vow saying He was not a man nor the son of man (an idiom for
human being), then He proclaimed “will He not do it (fulfill His Vow not
to come to Earth as a man), and will He not make it good (on this
Vow). Yahusha’s favorite title for himself was “son of man”,
saying he was a human being, 87 times Yahusha declared to us he was not a god,
he was a human being. Yahusha, the son of man, went to Yahchanan to be Mikveh’d
for “remission of sin”, in other words, to fulfill all Righteousness
in him, bringing him to perfection. Yahuah clearly denied incarnation as did
Yahusha on many occasions. Yahuah is the Father and God of Yahusha, so says
Scripture on many occasions. So Yahuah did not come to Earth as a man,
break His Vows, and die (impossible for a God). We need only to listen to
our elder brother speak these very simply truths:
Yahusha said, "Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet ascended to
the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am ascending to my Father
and your Father, to my God and your God.'"
The Plan of
Salvation that was first written in the stars, then prophesied to come was
through a human being who would be perfected then risen Divine, to MEDIATE
between Yahuah and mankind.
John 17:3 3
Now this is Eternal life: that they know you
(Yahuah), the Only true God, and (come to You through)
Yahusha (the Mediator) who is the Messiah (Anointed
King of Israel), whom You have sent (in
fulfillment of Your Promises as foretold through
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is One God (Yahuah) and one Mediator between Yahuah and
mankind, the man (not the God) Yahusha the Messiah!
How is the New Covenant, I call The Yahushaic Covenant…
“New”? It is a common teaching today (among Messianic and Hebrew Roots
teachers), that it is not “New” at all, just “Renewed”. In Christian
circles it is totally “New” as Yahuah went from being Immortal Spirit to
dying on a cross as a mortal man, The Shema became The Trinity, The Sabbath
became Sunday, Passover became Easter, the Law abolished for Grace, and the
pagan Gentiles replaced the sons of Abraham/Isaac/Jacob.
Which is true? Neither one!
The Yahushaic Covenant is not simply a renewed version of
The Mosaic Covenant, it is MUCH more complete and has a depth not found
in any other covenant. “Replacement Theology” found in Christianity is a
blatant unscriptural pagan lie.
So… the question, then, remains unanswered by
either side. So what is the answer?
All prior covenants before The Yahushaic Covenant were marriage
covenants, they were very literal, Yahuah entered into each covenant as the
Husband and Israel as a nation was His Bride. Yahuah did not enter into
personal covenants. Yahuah had yet to reveal the concept of Grace in light of
The Law; so these covenants were by the “Letter of the Law”, with
only Yahuah’s justice revealed. These covenants were incomplete, lacked an
eternal nature, and were simply training tools to teach us spiritual truths.
The Yahushaic Covenant is “new” in many ways. The primary
way it is new is that we are no longer in a Marriage Covenant with The Creator.
We are in a Marriage Covenant with the Messiah as Yahuah marries off His chosen
children in an arranged marriage portrayed in the Feast Cycle.
Yahuah entered into an Adoption Covenant with Yahusha so
make Yahusha the first born SON (not Bride) of Yahuah. Then as we enter into
the Marriage Covenant with Yahusha, we become one (the two shall become one)
through covenant. Yahuah therefore becomes our Father through Marriage and we
His sons by Law!
Below are just a few of the ways we are in a new covenant
with The Creator:
Salvation is through a Mediator. We are married to The Bridegroom who is
The Messiah, who mediates between the rest of the sons/daughters and Yahuah. We
then partake in the Adoption Covenant between Yahuah and Yahusha!
The Messiah entered into a family covenant whereby he was granted son
ship (not a marriage covenant as Yahuah and Yahusha are not husband and wife,
they are Father/Son… it is an adoption covenant! Yahusha is Yahuah’s
first born son through covenant, and adopted through resurrection.
The relationship between all who enter that covenant is the same… is
that of Father and son/daughter.
It is a personal covenant between The Creator and each individual. Unlike
the prior covenants where Yahuah entered into covenant with the Nation of
Israel as a whole, Yahuah now enters into covenant with each individual child
as their Father, not Husband. As “the Bride of Yahusha” we become
sons/daughters of Yahuah through marriage! We too, literally adopted into
Elohim through resurrection just like Yahusha.
The Law was transposed from “letter” to “intent”. With The Yahushaic Covenant,
Grace was progressively revealed in a way like never before. Yahuah’s justice
(well established at this point) was complimented with Grace, making the Law
whole i.e. fulfilling it. Grace was added to The Law, forgiveness granted in
covenant, and His “intent” behind the “letter” is what defines Righteousness.
The Physical Temple was transposed to the Spiritual Body.
The Physical Altar was transposed to the hearts/minds of His Sons.
The Physical Sacrifices were transposed to “personal sacrifice/living
sacrifices” and “loving obedience”.
The Inheritance transposed from physical land of Israel to the
The Priesthood of Aaron/Levi transposed to the Spiritual Priesthood of Melchizedek/Zadok
The Sons of Yahuah are now defined as a subset of physical Israel,
chosen by Yahuah, adopted into literal gods in the family of Elohim through
Atonement is realized in The Yahushaic Covenant. Atonement is “making
the wrong right again”, and can only be accomplished by a human, as the wrong
was committed by humanity. A “God” cannot atone for humanity, neither can the
blood of bulls, lambs, and goats.
In the prior covenants, animal sacrifices were a REMINDER that the debt is owed
and remained unsettled. Atonement is accomplished by a perfected Zadok High
Priest (as promised by Yahuah to the line of Zadok). A human, perfected by
Yahuah, holding the Office of Melchizedek (Zadok High Priest) has the ability
once perfected to offer his own life, a perfected human life, for the lives of
his brothers. Yahusha entered into that covenant with Yahuah to be that High
Priest, who would be perfected through suffering, then as High Priest, serve
with no sin and ultimately give his own life for his brothers/sisters salvation.
Yahuah promised Yahusha if he would do that, then Yahuah would accept his life
as atonement for the sin of Adam (humanity) and Yahusha the become “the second
Adam” or the second-change Adam… this time, a man did it righteously and
Atonement was granted by Yahuah. The wrong was made right, and humanity
restored by a human… not a god.
I realize almost everyone is deceived by this "marriage
covenant, so Yahuah had to be a human and die to remarry His former Bride"
false doctrine. Those who teach this simply are not in proper covenant with The
Creator! If they were, they would NEVER teach this abomination. It is literally
blasphemy against the Spirit of Yahuah to deny His immortality, remake Him in
the image of man, then kill The Creator off on a cross! Yahuah is immortal
(cannot die) and Spirit (not a man) and the Spirit of Yahuah is anyone who
denies incarnation and believes that Yahusha (not Yahuah) came to Earth as a
The Plan of Salvation written in the Stars at creation was
always that of an Adoption Covenant! We see below that John was very specific,
those in covenant with Yahusha are given the right to become “children of
Yahuah” not His wife!
Yet to all who did receive Yahusha (in covenant), to those who believed in (the covenant that bears) his name, Yahusha (through Marriage) gave the right to become children
of Yahuah (by Law).
Sha’ul clearly identified The Yahushaic Covenant as an
Adoption Covenant with Yahuah, not a “marriage”.
4 just as Yahuah chose us in (covenant with) Yahusha before the foundation of the
world (the Plan of Salvation was written in the Star),
that we would be holy and blameless before Yahuah (as
children through Mikveh see Ezekiel 36). In love 5 Yahuah
predestined us to adoption as sons through (marriage)
covenant with the Messiah Yahusha (the Bridegroom)
to Himself (the Father of the Bridegroom),
according to the kind intention of His will (to creat
a family… the Adoption Covenant was always the Plan of Salvation), 6 to
the praise of the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on us in the
Beloved (family of Elohim).…
We see this Adoption Covenant is “the Mystery of the Ages”
that Yahusha came to reveal!
Hebrews 2:10-18 - The Mystery of the
In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that Yahuah, for whom and through whom everything exists;
(Yahuah) should make the pioneer of their
salvation (Yahusha) perfect through what he suffered (a life and death on Earth). 11
Both the one who makes people holy (Yahuah) and
those who are made holy (Yahusha and all his
of the same family (we are literally “elohim” and offspring of Yahuah).
So Yahusha is not ashamed to call them (Remnant Israel)
brothers and sisters (Yahusha is our elder brother,
not our Elohim).
He says, “I (Yahusha) will declare Your Name (Yahusha declares the Shema or “Seal” of the Kingdom of Yahuah)
to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I will sing Your praises (we don’t sing praises to “Jesus” we worship Yahuah alone).”
And again, “I (Yahusha) will put my trust in
Him (Yahuah).” And again he says, “Here am I,
and the (rest of the) children Yahuah has given
me (to rule).” 14 Since the (future) children have flesh and blood (are trained by a life on Earth), he (Yahusha) too shared in their humanity (as a human trained by a life on Earth) so that by his
death he, Yahusha, might break the power of him who holds the power of death
that is, the devil (the blood of Yahusha covers the
decrees in the Law overcoming the Law of Sin and Death. With the decrees
in the Law covered; the Law then becomes the Law of the Spirit of Life)—
and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death
(Yahusha freed us from the Law of Sin and Death by
covering the decrees in the Law that demand our death. We are not held in
slavery to the Law but fear of death for disobeying it). 16 For surely it is
not angels Yahusha helps, but Abraham’s descendants (the
bloodline of the sons of Yahuah remains defined by the Abrahamic Covenant).
For this reason he (Yahusha) had to be made
like them (he was made human not a demi-god), fully human in every way (can’t get any
clearer than that) in order that he might become a
merciful and faithful high priest (Wonderful Counselor)
in service to Yahuah (he is Yahuah’s High Priest, not Yahuah
in the flesh), and that he might make atonement for the sins of the
people (because the Law that governs sacrifices and
atonement has been transposed to Heaven to serve Melchizedek). 18 Because he himself
suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those (brothers and sisters in the Family of Yahuah) who are being
We that Yahusha proclaimed that the key to Eternal Life is
declaring Yahuah is the one AND ONLY God and Father. Then we enter into
covenant with Yahusha to become His sons/daughters:
John 17:3 3
Now this is eternal life: that they know you
(Yahuah), the only true God, and (come to You through) Yahusha who is the Messiah, whom
you have sent (in fulfillment of Your promises as
foretold through the prophets to be the Mediator and Bridgroom).
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God (Yahuah) and one mediator between Yahuah and mankind,
the man Yahusha the Messiah (who mediates as Eternal
High Priest for his Bride)
2 Corinthians 6
17"Therefore, COME OUT FROM THEIR MIDST
AND BE SEPARATE," says Yahuah. "AND DO NOT TOUCH WHAT IS UNCLEAN; And
I will welcome you. 18"And I will be a father to you, And you shall be
sons and daughters to Me," Says Yahauah Almighty.
Jeremiah 31 - The "New
9 With weeping they shall come, but with
compassion I will guide them; I will lead them to streams of (living) water (Mikveh),
on a level road, without stumbling (as The Torah is a
light unto our path… Circumcision). For I am a father to Israel Ephraim
is my firstborn (Father/Son not Husband/Wife) …
31 See, days are coming—oracle of Yahuah —when I will make a new (ADOPTION) covenant with the house of Israel and
the house of Judah. 32 It will not be like the (MARRIAGE)
covenant I made with their ancestors!
So you see, this claim that Yahuah had to break His vow
NEVER to come to Earth as a man, and then do just that and then die, is blasphemy
and calling Yahuah a liar for making the vow in the first place and breaking
it. Then somehow going from Immortal Invisible Creator of all things to a
mortal man to be killed by humanity.
There is a vital disconnect in the family of Yahuah in these
last days. A misunderstanding of the Plan of Salvation. We are being taught
that Yahuah had to come to Earth as a man and die! This is necessary (so they
say), because of His own Law preventing a husband from remarrying the same
Bride. Only the death of the husband releases Yahuah from this “Law”. The
problem is, not only is it impossible for an Eternal being to die (that is what
makes Him a God and eternal in the first place), but Yahuah made a vow never to
come to Earth as a man. He swore He would never break that vow… and swore twice
for emphasis! Yahuah does not break His vows so we have a problem! Either
Yahuah is a liar, or we have misunderstood the covenant we are under.

will I devastate Ephraim again. For I am Yahuah, and not a man ---

bringing him to perfection. Yahuah clearly denied incarnation as did Yahusha on
I want to quickly summarize the
meaning of The Plan of Salvation, and how Yahuah has provided for
the Salvation of His children. It was never prophesied or promised that Yahuah
would come to Earth and die.
That is “another Gospel message” than the one preached by the Prophets, Yahusha
and his disciples! Those who preach incarnation are to be cursed for
blaspheming The Most High!
6 I am
astonished that you are so quickly deserting the One (Yahuah) Who called you to live in the Grace of
The Yahushaic Covenant and are turning to a different gospel— 7 which is really
no gospel at all. Evidently some people are throwing you into confusion
(with incarnation) and are trying to pervert
the gospel of Yahusha the Messiah (that he
was a human being 1 John 4). 8 But even
if we or an angel from heaven should
preach a gospel other than the one we preached to you, let them be under
Yahuah’s curse! 9 As we have already said, so now I say again (for emphasis): If anybody is preaching to you a
gospel other than what you accepted, let them be under Yahuah’s curse!
Those who teach incarnation are cursed for calling Yahuah a
liar, saying He broke His vow never to come to Earth as a man in
1 John 5:1-20
This is the conquering Spirit (of Yahuah) that has overcome the world, even our
faith (in the promises of Yahuah). 5 Who
is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Yahusha is
the son of Yahuah (not Yahuah in the flesh) … Whoever believes in the Son of
Yahuah (and denies incarnation) accepts
this testimony (that Yahusha was born (water) by
the seed of David (bloodline) and begotten diving through resurrection by the
Spirit of Holiness… water, blood, and Spirit Romans 1:2-3).
Whoever does not believe Yahuah (that Yahuah is not a
man nor the son of man) has made Yahuah out to be a liar (saying Yahuah came to Earth as a man), because
they have not believed the testimony Yahuah has given about his Son (that he was born human, inherited the title Melchizedek, and
More on the
testimony of water, blood, and Spirit later. Yes, Yahuah married both The House
of Israel and the House of Judah. We read how both houses were unfaithful to
Yahuah, and by Law He issued them a ‘certificate of divorce’. This was part of
the Plan of Salvation to illustrate that we cannot be in a direct marriage
covenant with Yahuah, and create a “need” for the Messiah to mediate a “New
Covenant” where he is the Bridegroom and we are Yahusha’s Bride. Yahuah then
had His Prophets foretell of a Messiah, a
Mediator, whom Yahuah would choose among men, perfect, and bring to perfect
obedience. Yahuah would enter into a
Covenant with that Messiah. That man would be risen Divine through resurrection
(not human birth) to Mediate a New Covenant as Eternal High
Priest, and atone for the unfaithfulness of the children of Yahuah. That is the
Plan revealed in the Heavenly Scroll and in the Earthly scrolls.
2 which (a
Mediator) Yahuah promised beforehand
(Yahusha did not pre-exist) through His
prophets in the holy Scriptures (both Heavenly and Earthly
Scrolls), 3 concerning His (first born)
Son (from the dead Revelation 1:5),
who was born (human) of a descendant of
David (by both parents) according to the
flesh (it takes two human parents to pro-create
“according to the flesh”), 4 who was declared the (Divine) Son of Yahuah with power by the resurrection
from the dead, according to the Spirit of Holiness (Yahuah’s Spiritual Eternal Seed), Yahusha the Messiah
8 though Yahusha was a (future) Son (of Yahuah
upon resurrection Romans 1:3), yet he learned obedience
(to Yahuah) by the things which he
suffered (due to disobedience). 9 And
having been perfected (he was not born perfect
or a god), Yahusha became the author of eternal salvation to all who
obey him (and follow his righteous example and
abide in covenant with him as his Bride)
The doctrine of incarnation says that Yahuah came to Earth
as a man, was imperfect, disobedient, and had to be perfected in obedience… Blasphemy!
Yahuah prepared a special bloodline for the coming Messiah
to inherit, whereby, he would be qualified to be a “Mediator” between Yahuah
and those He chooses as a New Bride (not the old Brides). That bloodline
was the Zadok bloodline of High Priests.
Yahuah would then orchestrate a lineage to the throne of
David through Solomon (through Yahusha’s father Joseph), and this man would be
born a unique genetic mixture of the Royal Bloodline of David and the House of
Zadok. This firstborn son of Yahuah would inherit the title Melchizedek the
“Ruling Zadok”, and be given the throne of David, and serve in the Office of
Zadok High Priest eternally.
Yahuah would then, as a sign of his place in the Plan of
Salvation, have this son born a miraculous birth, by planting the seed of
Joseph into Mariam’s womb outside of physical sexual union (mankind can do this
today through in vitro fertilization). This Messiah would be born to a Davidian
Prince (Joseph) and a Hasmonean Princess Miriam from the line of Zadok… and
Melchizedek was born into this world, John Chapter 1, as the
prophetic word became a reality; being fulfilled in the “flesh” and lived among
us when Yahusha was born!
Concerning the righteous line of High Priest prepared for
the Messiah; Zadok was a patrilineal descendant of Eleazar who was the son of
Aaron the high priest. (2 Samuel 8:17; 1 Chronicles 24:3).
The lineage of Zadok is presented in the genealogy of Ezra (his
descendant) as being of ninth generation and direct patrilineal descent
from Phineas, the son of Eleazar, where he is placed ninth in descent from
...Zadok, The son of Ahitub, son of Amaryah,
son of Azaryah, son of Mirayoth, son of Zerachyah, son of Uzzi, son of Bukki,
son of Avishua, son of Phineas
Similarly, the Hebrew Bible relates how, at the time,
Phineas (son of Eleazar) appeased Yahuah’s anger through his piety. He merited
the divine blessing of Yahuah to be the prophesied lineage of the coming
Book of Numbers 25:13
Phineas the son of Eleazar the son of Aaron
the priest. Behold I give to him My covenant of peace, and will be his,
and his progeny after him (speaking of Yahusha),
(a) covenant of everlasting priesthood in turn of his zealousness for
his God, and he atoned for the sons of Israel
This is extremely important when tracing the right of
Yahusha to be the Eternal High Priest. Yahusha must have come from the lineage of
Zadok, which is the bloodline of High Priest prepared for him. This is “how”
Yahusha was entrusted to mediate the Covenant of Peace, server as the Eternal
High Priest, and exercise the right to atone for sin! It was not because
Yahusha was a “god”! This is clearly laid out in Scripture and defined in
Numbers 25:13 above. Those under the Spirit of the False Messiah (incarnation)
have been given over to a depraved mine and cannot understand Scripture! They
do not teach us the Truth, when the Truth is right in from of their eyes.
If Yahusha cannot be proven to be a Zadok High Priest, then
he cannot mediate the "New Covenant of Peace", he cannot serve
as Eternal High Priest, and atone for humanity. Nothing about Yahusha was
“super spiritually appraised because he was some kind of demi-god”; everything
was laid out in detail by Yahuah through human bloodlines.
14Therefore, since we have a great high
priest who has passed through the heavens (fulfilled
The Heavenly Scroll), Yahusha the (firstborn)
son of Yahuah (from the dead Revelation 1:5),
let us hold fast our confession (that Yahusha came
in the flesh 1 John 1:4). 15 For we do not have a high priest
who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses (he was
not a god), but a high priest who has been tempted in all things as
we are (he was human, Yahuah cannot be tempted by Evil James 1:13), yet without sin (in
the office of High Priest in context Zechariah
3). 16 Therefore let us draw near (to
Yahuah through the Mediator) with confidence (that
we are accepted into His family as children, the Bride of His firstborn son)
So Yahusha became as much superior to the (other)
messengers, as the name (Melchizedek) he
has inherited (through blood lineage) is
superior to theirs.
To learn more about the bloodlines of our King and High
Priest, please read My book Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb. Visit My website
Yahuah would then
bare witness of this Messiah, with 3 concurring witnesses, water, blood, and
Water: he would be born human through his mother’s womb Psalms
Bloodline: he, by the seed of David, would inherit and
restore the Throne of David (through Joseph), and would inherit and restore the
Priesthood of Zadok (through Miriam)
Spirit: he would be begotten divine through resurrection
by the seed of Yahuah, the Ruach.
1 John 5
4 This is the conquering Spirit that has overcome the world, even our
faith (in the promises of Yahuah). 5 Who
is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Yahusha is
the son of Yahuah (not Yahuah in the flesh?) 6 This (Yahusha) is the one who came by water (the womb of a woman) and blood (of the seed of David)—Yahusha the Messiah. He did
not come by water only, but by water and blood.
And it is the Spirit who testifies (that
Yahusha is the son of Yahuah by the power of the resurrection),
because the Spirit is the truth. 7 For there are three (witnesses) that testify (that Yahusha is The son of Yahuah): 8 the Spirit
of Holiness, the water and the blood; and these three are in agreement
(that Yahusha is The Son of Yahuah). 9 We
accept (the lying) human testimony (of incarnation, the Spirit of the False Messiah), but
Yahuah’s testimony is greater because it is the testimony of Yahuah,
which he has given about his Son Yahusha (born
human through water by the seed of the bloodline of
David, begotten Divine by the Spirit of Holiness Romans 1:2-4).
10 Whoever believes in the Son of Yahuah accepts this testimony. Whoever
does not believe Yahuah (that Yahuah is not a
man nor the son of man) has made Yahuah out to be a liar (saying Yahuah came to Earth as a man), because they
have not believed the testimony Yahuah has given about his Son (that he was born human, inherited Melchizedek, and begotten
divine). 11 And this is the testimony: Yahuah has given us eternal
life, and this life is (found) in (covenant with) his Son (John 17:3). 12 Whoever has the (Spirit of
the) Son (that Yahusha was born human begotten
divine through resurrection) has (eternal)
life; whoever does not have (the testimony about)
the Son of Yahuah does not have (eternal)
2 which (a
Mediator) Yahuah promised
beforehand (Yahusha did not pre-exist)
through His prophets in the holy Scriptures (both
Heavenly and Earthly Scrolls), 3 concerning His (first born) Son (from
the dead Revelation 1:5), who was born (human) of a descendant of David (by both parents) according to the flesh (it takes two human parents to pro-create “according to the
flesh”), 4 who was declared the (Divine)
Son of Yahuah with power by the resurrection from the dead (Revelation 1:5), according to the Spirit
of Holiness (Yahuah’s Seed), Yahusha the
In the Plan of Salvation, Yahuah would enter into covenant
with His firstborn son (to be his Father) to forgive the sins of all His
children… this covenant is detailed in Zachariah Chapter 3. You
will tell me, Sha’ul, we never heard this prophecy before! This is because
those who teach under the Spirit of the False Messiah cannot teach this
prophecy. It contradicts their false doctrine clearly showing Yahusha is NOT
Yahuah, and in fact had his sin forgiven him through Mikveh! They will tell us
that this is referring to our Messiah’s great grandfather Yahusha III. This is
not so as this prophecy is clearly speaking of the Branch, and illustrating an
event that never occurred in Yahusha III’s life. Yet it is illustrating a
critical event that DID occur in our Messiah’s life.
The prophecy, in Zachariah Chapter 3, gives us a front row
seat to the conversation that happened between Yahuah and Yahusha in the
desert after Yahusha was Mikveh’d by John (and declared The Passover
Lamb, then fled like the scapegoat into the desert to seek Yahuah’s anointing
as Messiah/Branch). Yahusha, then, fled into the desert fulfilling the
shadow of the scapegoat for 40 days/nights looking for confirmation from his
Father. This event is detailed in Mark Chapter 1.
1 This is the beginning of the Good News
about Yahusha the Messiah, the Son of Yahuah (not
Yahuah), 2 as the prophet Isaiah wrote: "I will send My
messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way." 3 "This is a
voice of one who calls out in the desert: 'Prepare the way for the Messiah.
Make the road straight for him (through Mikveh).'"
4 John was Mikveh’ing people in the desert, and preaching a Mikveh of changed (circumcised) hearts and lives (living sacrifices) for the forgiveness of sins. 5
All the people from Judea and Jerusalem were going out to him (they knew he was the true High Priest). They
confessed their sins and were baptized by him in the Jordan River. 6 John wore
clothes made from camel's hair, had a leather belt around his waist, and ate
locusts and wild honey. 7 This is what John preached to the people: "There
is one coming after me who is greater than I; I am not good enough even to
kneel down and untie his sandals. 8 I immerse you with water, but he will immerse
you with the Set Apart Spirit of Yahuah." 9 At that time Yahusha came from
the town of Nazareth in Galilee and was Mikveh’d by John in the Jordan River. 10
Immediately, as Yahusha was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven open. The
Set Apart Spirit came down on him like a dove (as an
earnest guarantee of his future resurrection), 11 and a voice came from
heaven: "(today) You are My Son,
whom I love, and I am very pleased with you." (as
Yahusha fulfilled all righteousness) 12 Then the Spirit sent Yahusha
into the desert (in fulfillment of the scapegoat).
13 He was in the desert forty days and was tempted by Satan. He was with the
wild animals, and the angels came and took care of him.
Lying on the desert floor starving, dehydrated, and on the
verge of death, we know Satan came to Yahusha and tempted him to take Jerusalem
by force. This is where the vision in Zachariah Chapter 3 picks up. We have
Yahusha lying on the desert floor suffering from dehydration and starvation
looking like a “stick snatched from the fire of the hot sun”, and Satan mad
because Yahusha refused his offer.
Now let’s listen in to the conversation where Yahuah
confirms that Yahusha is the Messiah, and they agree on Yahushua’s role in the
Renewed Covenant. We see the “covenant” between Yahuah and Yahusha laid out
very clearly. Yahuah promised Yahusha that if he is faithful to his end of the
agreement, then Yahuah would forgive all His sons of their sin! This is the
critical prophecy and overwhelming PROOF that Yahusha is the Messiah. It is
also proof to Jews that Yahusha is named by name as the Branch. But
because we have been taught incarnation, we deny the ONE prophecy that could
change the entire conversation…
Zechariah 3 – Yahuah’s consecration of Yahusha as High Priest, King of
Kings, and Eternal Judge
1 Then he showed me Yahusha, the high
priest, standing before the angel of Yahuah, and Satan standing at his right
side to accuse him (Mark 1:13). 2
Yahuah (through His proxy messenger)
said to Satan, “Yahuah rebuke you, Satan! Yahuah, who has chosen Jerusalem,
rebuke you (because Satan offered Yahusha to take
Jerusalem by force)! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from
the fire?” (Yahusha was starving and dying in the
hot sun of the desert Matthew 4:1-11) 3 Now Yahusha was
dressed in filthy clothes (metaphor of sin
Isaiah 64:6) as he stood before the messenger of Yahuah. 4 The
messenger said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy
clothes.” Then Yahuah said to Yahusha, “See (after
taking off his filthy rags i.e. sin Isaiah 64:6), I have
taken away your sin (through Mikveh),
and I will put fine garments (of the High Priest)
on you.” 5 Then I (Yahuah) said (through the messenger), “Put a clean turban (of the High Priest) on his head.” So they put a
clean turban on his head and clothed him (in the
garments of the High Priest), while the messenger of Yahuah stood
*** New Covenant
made directly with Yahusha****
6 The messenger of Yahuah gave this charge to
Yahusha: 7 “This is what Yahuah Almighty says: ‘If (Yahuah
makes a conditional promise) you will walk in obedience to me and keep My
requirements (as High Priest) you will
govern My house (i.e. King over creation)
and have charge of My courts (Eternal Judge),
and I will give you a place (right hand of Yahuah)
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 to come (they were all shadows of The Messiah,
but were not the Branch): I am going to bring (you) My servant (from
this point forward), the Branch (he is The Messiah). 9 See, the stone I have set
in front of Yahusha! There are seven (number of
perfection) eyes on that one stone (to
witness), and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says Yahuah
Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day’ (the day Yahusha, in obedience, dies as Passover Lamb)
This is the most important passage of Scripture in the
entire Bible. Yet, no one teaches it because our teachers are filled with
The Spirit of the False Messiah… incarnation. This one prophecy proves Yahusha
is the Messiah, and literally spells out his role and how we are saved by
Yahuah through Yahusha’s obedience to our Father. This is the reason Yahusha
went to Yahchanan to be Mikveh’d, to “fulfill all the righteous requirements of
the Law” in him, and bring him to perfection, just like Yahusha proclaimed:
Yahusha replied, "Let me be Mikveh’d
now; it is properly required in The Law, for us to do this to fulfill all
righteousness (have his sin washed away with Living
That is what Mikveh is for, and why John (Yahchanan) was in
the desert, he was commission to “set the path straight for the Branch” and
immersing him for the remission of sin. No other reason! Yahusha was setting
the proper example we all must follow to have our sin washed clean by Yahuah
with Living Water. We just witnessed in Zachariah Chapter 3 exactly what
Yahusha’s role was in the Renewed Covenant. He was the Messiah (the Branch)
and had to from that point forward (after Mikveh as High Priest) walk in
complete obedience to the Law and set the righteous example that we are to follow.
And if he would do that, Yahuah promised to cover the death decrees in the
Law, that is called Grace.
Scripture reveals how Yahuah would hand pick a “New Bride”
for His firstborn son. Not the old ones, but this one would be “chosen” not
based on bloodline alone and be a small remnant from both the old Brides. It
would be taken from among the House of Israel and the House of Judah… this New
Bride would be called Remnant Israel. It would be wed to
Yahuah’s son, not to Yahuah.
24 even us (Remnant Israel in context),
whom he also called, not only from among the Jews (The
House of Judah) but also from among the Gentiles (where The House of Israel is scattered)?
Sha’ul goes into great detail about this New Bride and how
there is a new criterion that makes this Bride “New”. It is a totally new
group who are chosen not based on bloodline alone. For more information on this
New Bride, please see the link on My website: Yahuah's
gifts to Remnant Israel
Yahuah would literally chose a Bride for His firstborn son,
and marry His son to this New Bride. His chosen children would then be given
the opportunity to “abide in” covenant with His firstborn son.
…6 "If anyone
does not abide in Me, he is thrown away as a branch and dries up; and they
gather them, and cast them into the fire and they are burned.
It is through a Mediator now that we become “one”
with Yahuah in family as sons/daughters, not through a direct marriage! We are
one with Yahuah by being married to His son!
John 17:3 3
Now this is eternal life: that they know
you (Yahuah), the only true God, and (come to You through) Yahusha who is the Messiah,
whom you have sent (in fulfillment of Your promises
as foretold through the prophets to be the Mediator).
1 Timothy 2:5
For there is one God (Yahuah) and one mediator between Yahuah and
mankind, the man Yahusha the Messiah
19 "And for their sakes I sanctify Myself
(through the Truth of Scripture), that
they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these
alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word (enter into covenant); That they all may be one; as
thou, Father, art in (covenant with) me,
and I in (covenant with) thee, that they also
may be one in (covenant with) us (through me): that the world may believe that thou
hast sent me (to mediate)."
12 Yet to all who did receive Yahusha as
the Messiah, to those who believed in (the covenant
that bears) his name, he gave the right to become children of
11 For both He who sanctifies (Yahuah) and those who are sanctified (Yahusha and the rest of the sons) are all from
one Father; for which reason Yahusha is not ashamed to call them brothers,
12saying, "I WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN, IN THE MIDST OF THE
CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE." 13 And again, "I, Yahusha,
WILL PUT MY TRUST IN YAHUAH." And again, "BEHOLD, I AND THE (REST OF THE) CHILDREN WHOM YAHUAH HAS GIVEN ME (as a Bride)."…
His firstborn son would become the Bridegroom and the rest
of His children would become the Bride of the Messiah. This is the meaning
behind the Annual Wedding Celebration we call The Appointed Times or Holy Days.
The Spring Feasts are the engagement between the Messiah and His Bride. The
Fall Feasts are “The Wedding Supper of the Lamb”, where the Bridegroom Yahusha
marries this New Bride called Remnant Israel. This was foretold in The Heavenly
Scroll from the foundation of the world, as this Messiah would be portrayed as
crucified, a lamb seen slaughtered at the foundation of the world as witnessed
in The Heavenly Scroll.
All inhabitants of the Earth will worship the
beast--all whose names have not been written in the Lamb's book of life, the
Lamb who was slain from the creation of the world.
His firstborn son would have to shed his own blood, as
bloodshed is required to consummate a marriage covenant. In Psalms below we
see that as the sun and moon rises and sets daily and night after night…
knowledge concerning The Plan of Yahuah is proclaimed without voice or speech
from one end of the Earth to the other to all mankind from The Heavenly Scroll.
19 The heavens (H8064: shamayim - the stars and constellations of the Zodiac) are
telling of the glory of Yahuah; And their expanse is declaring the work of His
hands. 2 Day to day (the Zodiac) pours
forth speech, And night to night (the Zodiac)
reveals knowledge. 3 There is no speech, nor are there words; Their (stars and constellations of the Zodiac) voice is
not heard. 4 Their line (ecliptic plane through
which the sun appears to travel when viewed from Earth) has gone out
through all the Earth, And their utterances to the end of the world. In them (the constellations) He has placed a tent for the
sun, 5 Which (the Sun) is as (a shadow or metaphor) a Bridegroom (the Messiah) coming out of his chamber (to run the course of a wedding and marry the Bride); It
rejoices as a strong man (Messiah) to run his
course (Plan of Salvation). 6 The Sun’s rising
is from one end of the heavens, And its circuit (Zodiac
or Path) to the other end of them; And there is nothing hidden from
David is clearly describing the Zodiac, the chart of the sun
moving across our skies, and the “line of the sun” (called the ecliptic) that
goes throughout all the Earth; as it runs its course each year through the
Signs of the Zodiac (called constellations or starry hosts). David
properly understood the message contained in the Zodiac. The sun rises from one
end of heaven, and then its “circuit or Zodiac” is like a “Bridegroom coming
out of his chamber” as The Heavenly Wedding is foretold. The Feast Cycle is
a celebration in detail of this wedding. This is fulfilled in Yahusha the Messiah.
Yahusha proclaims himself the “Bridegroom”, and says those who “hear His voice”
(speaking of the Zodiac Psalms 19:2) rejoice; and it is Yahusha’s
joy to be the fulfillment of that message. Yes, the Zodiac is the
original Gospel message proclaiming the Messiah.
who has the Bride is the Bridegroom; but the friend of the Bridegroom, who
stands and hears Him, rejoices greatly because of the Bridegroom’s voice (proclaimed in The Heavenly Scroll Psalms 19).
Therefore, this joy of mine is fulfilled (Yahusha
fulfilled the message contained in The Heavenly Scroll).
4 The wise ones,
however, took oil in jars along with their lamps. 5
The Bridegroom was a long time in coming (2,000
years at the end of the Age of Pisces), and they all became drowsy
and fell asleep. 6 At midnight the cry rang out: “Here’s the Bridegroom!
Come out to meet him!”
9 And the
angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the
marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These (written in The Heavenly Scroll) are the true
words of Yahuah.”
In other words, David sees the Sun as a prototype for The Messiah.
This physical metaphor of the sun as the Bridegroom pointing to The Messiah is
repeated throughout Scripture. This is, in fact, true as the Sun was created as
a witness of the coming of the Messiah, and what the Messiah would do. This
striking declaration in Psalms 19 clearly tells us that Yahuah
built into the Zodiac the story of redemption, and through the stars He has
been witnessing His Plan to all humanity in a unique view only from Earth.
This firstborn son is Yahusha. Yahusha entered into a
covenant personally with Yahuah, and fulfilled his obligations to Yahuah. Yahuah
promised to make him His Eternal High Priest, Judge, and King over creation
which Yahuah would give to him as an inheritance. The rest of the children of
Yahuah then enter into covenant with the Mediator as his Bride becoming
children of Yahuah. Yahuah then becomes our Father not our Husband through
marriage between the Messiah and his Bride.
This is the real question we are seeking to answer. Did
Yahusha raise himself from the grave? Was he literally a God, Yahuah in the
flesh? The answer to this question should be quite obvious. Death is the
penalty of sin. All humans must die (for all have sinned) and pay that penalty,
even Yahusha. “God” cannot die, that is what makes Him “eternal”. It is a
contradiction and blasphemy. Even true, fully begotten “sons of Yahuah” which
are born of the dead (Rev 1:5) cannot die! Only fully humans… with no ‘god’ in
them are capable of dying.
and they can no longer die; for they are like
the angels. They are God's children, since they are children of the
We see below, that Yahusha cried out to the ONE GOD (who did
not die) to save him from death. We also see, the Yahuah saved Yahusha from
death NOT because he was a “god”, but because of his piety (reverent submission
to the Will of Yahuah to honor their agreement in Zachariah Chapter 3).
6just as He says also in another passage,
"YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK." 7In
the days of His flesh, He offered up both prayers and supplications with loud
crying and tears to the One able to save Him from death, and He was heard
because of His piety. 8Although He was a Son, He learned obedience from the
things which He suffered.…
So not only was Yahusha not a “god” or “God in the Flesh”
which is blasphemy, but he was not yet a fully begotten son of Yahuah! He, like
all mankind, had been Mikveh’d and given an earnest guarantee of his future
resurrection. Yahusha had to pay the price of sin… which is death of the
physical flesh. We have been so conditioned by the Spirit of the False Messiah
that blasphemy is commonplace in our mouths, and the Truth sounds like blasphemy!
While the truth is boldly proclaimed in the pages of Scripture that Yahusha was
born human to two parents by the seed of David, then fully begotten Divine by
the power of the resurrection… we have been given over to a spirit of stupor…
and simply cannot “see” with our own eyes.
1 John 4 – The Spirit of the False Messiah is “incarnation”
1 Beloved, do not believe
every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from Yahuah, because
many false prophets have gone out into the world (claiming
to be the incarnation of God).
Yahusha is the ONLY one
that did not claim to be God-incarnate, but maintained The Shema everytime he
was questions and denied incarnation!
2 By this you know the Spirit of Yahuah: every spirit
that confesses that Messiah Yahusha
has come in the flesh (a man) is
from Yahuah; 3 and every spirit that does
not confess Yahusha has come
in the flesh (but says Yahuah came in the
flesh) is not from Yahuah; this is the spirit of the antichrist (or False Messiah) … 12 No one has seen Yahuah at
any time! (Because Yahusha is not Yahuah in the
flesh or a demi-god).
We are taught in Christianity that “Jesus paid the price for
us, he bore our sin, he kept the Law so we don’t have to keep it, he died so we
can live, he was God the Father become the Son in the Flesh”. Just like that,
just utter the name “Jesus” ... and you are in the clear, no need to do
anything else, you can be lawless and sin all you like; Grace will cover you
because God died for you. That is another Gospel message!
What Yahusha did do, was he was obedient to his role as Messiah
(defined by Yahuah in Zachariah Chapter 3) and show us the way by
example that we must follow ourselves. Yahusha “bore our sin” in
fulfillment of the scapegoat and as a sin offering in that Yahuah accepted his
offering and through that sacrifice we now can approach Yahuah’s Throne
personally. He didn’t “die for our sin” (we still have to die physically for
the sin in our own bodies) and he didn’t do it all for us. We have to
follow in his example if we too are to defeat death like he did. We must follow
his example of Mikveh (ritual cleansing of sin), circumcision
(of heart our commitment to keep his law), and bringing an offering
of our lives to the altar on Passover (we are living sacrificial lambs).
Yahusha answered, "I am (his example is) the way and (his example is) the truth and (his example is)
the life. No one comes to the Father except through me (in covenant with him by following his example).
For I have given you an example (a true way that leads to eternal life), that you
should do as I have done.
1 Peter 2:21
But if you suffer for doing good (obey the Law) and you endure it (you will be conformed to the image of Yahusha, Romans 8:29
and 2 Corinthians 3:18, who was perfected through suffering),
this is commendable before Yahuah. 21 To this (to
be conformed to the image of His son) you were called, because the Messiah
suffered (on Passover) for you (and tore the veil giving you access to the Altar of Yahuah),
leaving you an example (of what to do as he fulfilled
the spiritual meaning of Passover), that you should follow in his
steps (being Mikveh’d, demonstrating a circumcised
heart, and bring your own offering on Passover to the Altar of Yahuah).
Yahusha did not do it all for us, he obeyed Yahuah,
and set the righteous example for us to follow. In doing so, Yahuah promised to
forgive our sin and cover the death decree against us as Sha’ul said...
follow his example!
The death decree that Yahuah covers is called ‘The Second
Death’ (or rather the final spiritual death decree). He does not
cover the first physical death decree; you still must die! The spiritual
death decree (or second death) is ‘passed over’ for all who follow
Yahusha’s example and put their faith in (and properly celebrate) Passover.
Very few people know what I’m teaching here and few (if any) keep Passover
properly. We follow the example of Rabbinical Judaism... not Yahusha. Yahuah
does not issue the final death decree, and we defeat death and live again if we “do this in
remembrance of his example”. So we all, like Yahusha, must physically die and
pay the price of sin as we inherited death in our bodies (not physical die on
Passover, we give our lives on the altar as living sacrifices). It is Spiritual
Death that we do not suffer because after we die, like Yahusha, we defeat death
and are raised to eternal life by Yahuah. Let me explain.
I said that Yahusha did not pay our penalty of sin in our
body, and he did not cover the first death decree… you still are going to die. Every
physical body must die a natural death (or be translated through
transposition, which is just another form of physical death). We
know that Yahuah's own laws prevent anyone (including Yahusha) from
being judged for another man’s sin. Each man is judged for his sin alone:
"The fathers shall not be put to death
for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every
man shall be put to death for his own sin."
We all are going to pay for our sin through physical death,
just like Yahusha did. Yahuah would never violate His own law, and put Yahusha
to death for our sin! Yahusha was a “sin offering” only in the respect that, he
obeyed Yahuah and Yahuah promised to forgive our sin AFTER we die (and pay the
price for sin ourselves in our bodies). Yahusha died as all men do, he was not
born into sin (Original Sin is a false doctrine), our physical bodies die for
our own sin. For all have sinned Romans 3:23. There was no exception in
that statement not even an exception for the Messiah. Death, not sin, is passed
on from Adam into our genetic code. Then we all fall for “sin” and that death
sentence we inherited is justified. This is a fact that disturbs us greatly
only because we have been misled to believe that Yahusha was a “God” and lived
a sin free life from birth. This is contrary to the Scriptural record which
clearly states that Yahusha was “perfected” and “learned obedience” through
discipline! He was not born perfect or obedient. He was, as all men are,
subject to sin and died which is the penalty of personal sin!
In fact, per Zachariah Chapter 3, Yahusha had
his sin forgiven through Mikveh just like we do. The entire doctrine of
“Original Sin” is a false doctrine. What the Bible teaches is that through one MAN’S
act of disobedience to the Law of Yahuah (Adam), “sin” was brought into the
world (not our body), and as a result of Adam's sin his body began to
die. From that point forward, DEATH was passed to all men genetically
and sin was in the world.
"Wherefore, as by one man… sin entered
into the world, and death by sin (so death comes by
your own sin not genetically); and so death passed upon all men, for
that all have sinned (Yahusha died)"
The Bible says that death (not sin) is passed on in
the body, we are not born into “original sin”. We are born into a body that is
predisposed to sin. Sin was brought into the world (not our body)
through one act of disobedience. Death however is passed to all men genetically
as we are all born to die. In this way the "law" of sin and you die
by decree, called the Law of Sin and Death reigned over humanity,
and we lived in bondage to the fear of death. It is this threat of death that held
us captive not the Law of Yahuah:
14 so that by his death he, Yahusha, might
break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil — 15 and
free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death (not in slavery to the Law as Christianity teaches)
2 Kings 14:6
"But the children of the murderers he
slew not: according unto that which Yahuah commanded, saying, the fathers shall
not be put to death for the children, nor the children be put to death for the
fathers; but every man shall be put to death for his own sin."
"The soul that sinneth, it shall die.
The son shall not bear the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father
bear the iniquity of the son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon
him, and the wickedness of the wicked shall be upon him."
"Yet ye say, the way of Yahuah is not
equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways."
"In those days they shall say no more,
the fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children's teeth are set on edge.
But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour
grape, his teeth shall be set on edge."
As we read before the Law was weakened by our flesh, it is
we who are not perfect! We were the weak link in the Law, and our
weaknesses made the Law incomplete and prevented the Law from delivering
eternal life as promised. The Law had to be made complete through grace (by
covering the death decrees), in order for the Law to achieve its righteous
outcome which is eternal life.
1My son, do not forget My Torah, but let
your heart keep My commandments; 2 For length of days and years of life and
peace they will add to you.
20"You shall write them (the Torah) on the doorposts of your house and on
your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied on
the land which Yahuah swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the
heavens remain above the Earth.
It is in this way Yahusha “fulfilled” the Law; he bridged
the gap of our own weaknesses by covering the death decrees. Now, in covenant
with Yahusha, the Law is complete and delivers eternal life for obedience as
promised. This is called The Law of the Spirit that Leads to Life.
However, this fleshly body predisposed to sin and designed genetically to die…
must pay the price for our sin.
The penalty of sin is death which is in our genetic
structure because of Adam. So the sentence of "physical death" is
justified because we all individually fall for the temptation of sin in this
This is extremely important to understand, because Yahusha
showed us The Way a human being can live a life pleasing to Yahuah, that
results in the resurrection from the dead. If we follow that path, we too as
humans can defeat death in the exact same way!
The main theme of The Yahushaic Covenant is that Yahusha
defeated the ‘Law of Sin and Death’ by fulfilling the requirements of the Passover
Lamb. Now those in covenant with him live in freedom (from the threat of
death) in what is called the ‘Law of the Spirit of Life’. Before we go any
further, first let me define terms:
The Law of Yahuah – An all-encompassing term for the
commands/law, ordinances, and decrees of Yahuah. So when we say “the Law” we
are referring to all 3 aspects combined:
30 "Go, tell them to return to their
tents. 31 But you stay here with me so that I may give you all the commands,
decrees and ordinances you are to teach them to follow in the
land I am giving them to possess."
As we read above, the Law contains commands, decrees,
and ordinances, so let me quickly define each one:
Commands also called Laws - Simply speaking these are
the 10 commandments, the dietary Laws, the judicial laws, the Laws of ritual
purity, the sacrificial laws, and so forth.
Ordinances – these are the ordained times such as
The Sabbath, and the ordained festivals (spring and fall feasts).
Decrees – these are the divine judgments or
judicial decrees within the Law that levy judgment against us for violating the
commands and ordinances within the Law. Only the decrees were “nailed to the
stake” as our transgressions were forgiven by Yahuah and covered by the blood
of the lamb Yahusha as agreed upon in Zachariah Chapter 3.
The Law - So together, the commands, decrees, and
ordinances make up what we call ‘the Law’. The Law first existed in what Sha’ul
the Apostle refers to as ‘the Law of Sin and Death’. The Law, was then
transposed by Yahusha into ‘the Law of the Spirit of Life’. Let me explain and
clearly define these terms used by Sha’ul the Apostle…
is the Law of Yahuah with active
death decrees for disobedience as it existed in written form passed down from
Adam through Moses. The first (and every subsequent “law”) came with a
corresponding judicial decree for breaking that law. The first Law was given in
Eden with “you shall not eat of the apple” (law) and then the decree “or
you shall surely die”. That is where the Law of sin and you die was first
introduced. Over time as new laws were added, so were new judicial decrees for
each new law Yahuah revealed as he progressively disclosed the ‘constitution’
of His Kingdom. Since we all have sinned, we were being held captive by the
death decrees and in bondage to the fear of death.
is the Law of Yahuah with the death
decrees covered by the blood of the Lamb (this is called Grace). The
covering of the death decree which Sha’ul called a ‘certificate of debt’ (we
owed with our lives) was a free give that we did not deserve. This is the
definition of ‘Grace’. By covering the death decrees and forgiving the
‘certificate of debt’ we owed Yahuah, we are restored to a state of perfect
obedience and freeing us from slavery to the fear of the death decrees. Our sin
is forgiven through Mikveh and the decrees covered by our faith in Yahusha as
the Passover Lamb.
In effect the Law has not changed, it was just made
whole or ‘complete’ through grace (the covering of the death decrees in the
With the understanding of terms, it becomes clear what Sha’ul
the Apostle is saying in Romans 1.
1 Now there is no condemnation (referring to the Death Decrees/Certificate of Debt)
for those in The Yahushaic Covenant. 2 For the Law of the Spirit of life in (covenant with) Yahusha the Messiah, has made me
free from the Law of Sin and Death (the death
decrees in the Law are covered and paid in full). 3 For what the Law
could not do (bring eternal life as promised)
because the Law was made weak by our flesh (because
we broke the Law and the decrees in the Law condemned us to death for
disobedience), Yahuah did (provided
Eternal Life as a free gift to those who try to keep the Law and fail i.e.
Grace) by sending His own (firstborn)
Son in the likeness of sinful flesh (as a man fully
human), on account of sin (to defeat it
by living obedient to the Law and dying innocent): Yahusha condemned
sin in the flesh (our genetic death sentence),
4 that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us (who are Mikveh’d into the Yahushaic Covenant and brought
into total obedience to the Law) who do not walk according to the flesh
(disobedient to the Law) but according to the
This is the reason Yahusha went to John to be Mikveh’d, to
“fulfill all the righteous requirements of the Law” in him, and bring him to
Yahusha replied, "Let me be Mikveh’d now;
it is properly required in The Law, for us to do this to fulfill all
righteousness (have his sin washed away with Living
Then Yahusha fled into the desert where Yahuah consecrated
him High Priest personally and said:
3Now Yahusha was dressed in filthy clothes as
he stood before the angel. 4 The angel said to those who were standing before
him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then he said to Yahusha, “See, I have
taken away your sin (earlier through Mikveh),
and I will put fine garments on you.”
Yahusha was setting the proper example that we all must
follow to have our sin washed clean by Yahuah with Living Water. Most people
think walking according to the Spirit is somehow walking in some super
spiritual state, letting the Spirit guide us while we completely ignore the Law.
The Spirit Sha’ul is referring to is the Spirit of loving obedience to the Law
prophesied in Ezekiel 36: 26, 27).
Ezekiel 36: 26, 27
Walking according to the new Spirit I will
give you a new heart (for My Law and write My Law
on it) and put a new spirit (of loving
obedience) in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone (legalistic observance of the Law out of fear of death)
and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put My (loving)
Spirit in you and move you to follow (the Spiritual
Intent) My commands and be careful to keep (the Intent of) My laws.
with Romans 8...
5 For those who live according to the flesh
set their minds on the things of the flesh (and
abolish the Law of Yahuah), but those who live according to the
Spirit (of loving obedience to the Law),
the things of the Spirit (the Law is Spiritual Romans
7:14). 6 For to be carnally minded is death (you’ll be judged by the decrees in the Law), but
to be spiritually minded is life and peace (because
in loving obedience to the Law the decrees against you are covered by the blood
of the lamb resulting in peace and a spirit of comfort). 7 Because
the carnal mind is hatred against Yahuah; for it is not subject to the Law of
Yahuah, nor indeed can be. 8 So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please
Yahuah (because they hate the Law of Yahuah and
abolished it in their hearts).
13Therefore did that which is good (the Law) become a cause of death for me? May it never
be! Rather it was sin, in order that it might be shown to be sin by effecting My
death (through the death decrees)
through that which is good, so that through the commandment, sin would become
utterly sinful. 14 For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh,
sold into bondage to sin.
For it is not those
who hear the Law who are righteous in Yahuah’s sight, but it is those who obey
the Law who will be declared righteous.
As we just read in Romans 8:6, to be spiritually minded is
life and peace! This Spirit Sha’ul is referring to, is the comforter
that Yahusha and Ezekiel prophesied would come upon us. We have a spirit of
comfort, now that the death decrees are covered, and we no longer live in
bondage to the fear of sin and death. Sha’ul is saying that Yahusha “nailed the
death decrees that demand our death” in the Law, to the stake (covering them
with the blood of the Lamb). Now that Yahusha was obedient unto death, the
Law of Yahuah has become the Law of the Spirit of Life as Yahusha
has removed our enmity (fear of death) toward the Law.
Through Yahusha the Messiah, those in covenant with him are
found in perfect obedience to the Law (the righteous requirements are
fulfilled in us, just like they were in Yahusha when he was Mikveh’d to
“fulfill all righteousness in him”!). This is because Yahuah forgives our
transgression, and covers the ‘certificate of debt’ against us that justified
our physical death. The promise for obedience to the Law is eternal life, so
once that certificate of debt is forgiven... we defeat death through
resurrection exactly like Yahusha did! Now, in the Yahushaic Covenant, the Law
has been transposed to the Law of the spirit of loving obedience that leads to
eternal life. Sha’ul discusses this in detail in Colossians.
13 When you were dead in your transgressions
(held captive to the death decrees) and
the uncircumcision of your flesh (lost among the
Gentile nations), Yahuah made you alive together (in covenant) with Yahusha, having forgiven us all
our transgressions (covered the death decrees),
14 having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against
us, which was hostile to us; and Yahuah has taken the certificate of
debt (death decrees in the Law, NOT THE LAW)
out of the way, having nailed the certificate of debt (that justifies our physical death) to the stake
This cycle of “being born to die, then dying guilty of our
own personal sin which justifies that death sentence in our body” had to be
broken by a man, just as it began with a man. If Yahusha was a
demi-god or God in the flesh, the entire concept of overturning Adam’s act would
have no value. In order to defeat death, a man whose body was
genetically engineered to “die” (which was justified because “all have
sinned”) had to die innocent in the eyes of Yahuah, by walking
obedient to His instructions and being perfected. That is the glorious message
behind the Gospel; that it is possible for a human being (who sinned) to be
perfected and die innocent in the eyes of Yahuah through faith and
Death, then, cannot hold an innocent man, because death is
the penalty of sin. Yahuah has to issue the final death decree for them to stay
dead (the Second Death). Yahuah predestined a human Messiah (foretold
in both The Heavenly and Earthly Scrolls), to come and live and serve as
High Priest. This man would be perfected through discipline by follow the
instruction of Yahuah to become righteous, then Mikveh’d clear of sin, and
would live from that point forward in complete obedience to His Law as High
Priest. That is how Yahusha defeated death… Yahusha accomplished his role
defined in Zachariah Chapter 3 (being the heir to the promise to the
House of Zadok to mediate a covenant of peace, reign eternally as High Priest,
and make atonement)… then Yahuah honored His promise, and death was defeated in
ONE DAY when Yahuah forgave the sins of the land as Yahuah fulfilled his end
and proclaimed “it is finished!”. Yahusha was literally saved by
his faith in himself as the Passover Lamb having been perfected through
obedience and Mikveh. That is The Way to Yahuah that we all can follow
that will result in our resurrection as well. As we follow Yahusha in the
28 And Jesus said to them, "Truly I say
to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son
of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones,
judging the twelve tribes of Israel. 29 "And everyone who has left houses
or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms for My name's
sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life.…
What is “that path we follow”?
8 though Yahusha was a Son, yet he learned
obedience (to Yahuah) by the things
which he suffered. 9 And having been perfected (by
Yahuah through obedience and suffering throughout his life and ultimately on
Passover), Yahusha (his example)
became the author of eternal salvation (forefather
of everlasting life Isaiah 9:6-7) to all who obey Yahuah (and follow Yahusha’s example John 1:12).
In other words, Yahusha’s life, of being perfected by the
Law of Yahuah, became the true way to eternal life by example.
His way is the true way that leads to eternal life. The
Truth, the Way, and the Life.
The Messiah Yahusha was that man to break the ‘Law of
Sin and Death’ and then die innocent and defeat death in the process. Through
the Messiah, one act of the obedience of one man (not God)
resulted in salvation from death. We see that DEATH (not "sin") came
through Adam genetically... and by "man" (not "God") came
the resurrection of the dead!
1 Corinthians 15
20 But now the Messiah is risen from the dead
(by Yahuah), and has become the first
fruits of those who have fallen asleep (first born
son of the resurrection Romans 1:3-4). 21 For since by man (Adam) came death, by Man (not God) also came the resurrection of the dead.
22 For as in (one human) Adam all die, even so
in (one human), the Messiah, all (the sons of Yahuah) shall be made alive (begotten by Yahuah as sons through resurrection).
The Law of the Spirit of Life i.e. a man living in obedience
to the Law, having his sin forgiven through Mikveh, demonstrating
a contrite spirit and circumcised heart, and then giving his life
as a living sacrificial offering to serve Yahuah… has
received the promise of eternal life. Yahusha, the man, became the
example for all the sons of Yahuah and he is called the "forefather of
everlasting life" and made righteous in the eyes of Yahuah.
Later in this book, I am going to show that The
Way through The Narrow Gate of Passover is Mikveh, Circumcision
Now, to all of us who follow in his footsteps in obedience
to Yahuah, we too are declared righteous. Not by faith alone, but by a process
of obedience to the Law, suffering through faith, and expressing our faith by
keeping Passover in light of Yahusha’s sacrifice. In doing so, Yahusha’s “blood” or sin offering is accepted
by Yahuah to cover the second death decrees on our behalf and we too are
found innocent after we die… and we too will defeat death through resurrection:
16 Faith and Deeds (works of the Law). Faith alone does not save, nor
does deeds alone. You must have both. …17 In the same way, faith by itself, if
it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have
faith; I have deeds.” Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you My
faith by My deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God (The Shema). Good! Even the demons believe
that—and shudder. … 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what
they do and not by faith alone…26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so
faith without works of the Law is dead.
Yahusha, being fully human, denied the fleshly desire to
"sin" after his Mikveh in the office of High Priest, and obeyed
Yahuah even to the point of willingly going to his own death (which was not
Yahusha's own will). It is the ultimate demonstration that Yahusha set
aside his selfish will to live, and obeyed Yahuah's will that he die, IF he
loved his brothers enough to pay that price.
This was Yahuah’s plan from the beginning! Written in
the stars before the foundation of the world... To literally perfect a human
being (Yahusha) through suffering, making Yahusha our "pioneer of our
salvation" our "forefather of everlasting life" our ultimate
example… all meaning the same thing.
Yahuah orchestrated our salvation through his human Messiah
NOT by coming to Earth and dying! This was His plan from the beginning written
in the stars. It was prophesied in Genesis where the seed of a woman would
crush the head of the serpent. It was foretold through all his prophets, His
Ordained Times, and countless shadow pictures such as Joseph, David, Joshua,
Sampson, and so forth. That plan of Yahuah’s was fulfilled in Yahusha:
14 Since the children have flesh and blood
(and are held captive to the Law of Sin and Death),
he too shared in their humanity (he was human too
and captive to genetic death) so that by his death (the death of a human, not
God) he, Yahusha, might break the power of him who holds the power
of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in
slavery by their fear of death. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but
Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason (to break
the Law of Sin and Death) he (Yahusha)
had to be made like them fully human in every way, in order that he might become
a merciful and faithful high priest (who are chosen
from among men) in service to Yahuah.
Sha’ul is teaching above in Hebrews 2, the exact same message
I am trying to convey. Since the children of Yahuah are first born flesh and
blood, the Messiah had to be born flesh and blood to atone for them and
break the power of death. Nowhere in Scripture does it say it takes ‘God’ to
die to save us. Nowhere in Scripture did Yahuah promise to come to Earth and
die; that is impossible. For this reason, the Messiah HAD TO BE HUMAN, not God
or a demigod.
He could not have been Yahuah in the flesh. He had to be and
was human.... fully human in every way so says Hebrews 2:17.
Because if he wasn’t fully human in every way… he could not undue what was done
by Adam who was human. Yahusha is the “second chance Adam”. A man brought sin
and death into the world... it would take a man to take them out of the world.
Now, having proven himself as a human that could obey and
withstand the temptation of his flesh... Yahusha was chosen by Yahuah from
among all mankind as High Priest to serve Him for eternity (fulfilling the
promise to the House of Zadok... see My book Melchizedek and the Passover
Lamb). Yahusha HAD to die, not only for us but for himself (to pay
the price of the genetic structure he inherited from Adam, he was 100% human
and his death proved it).
He too was in a human body predisposed to death genetically
and that body had to be put to death for Yahusha to enter The Kingdom of Yahuah.
He had to make that sacrifice as the human High Priest. Let’s look at Hebrews 5
in more detail to show that Yahusha had to make the Passover Sacrifice for
himself as well. We see that Yahusha as High Priest is chosen from among men in
vs. 3 "he is obligated to offer sacrifices for sins, as for the people, so
also for himself".
... “IT HAD TO BE GOD"... actually, it is the
I get asked all the time "how could a man do all the
work of salvation? It HAD TO BE GOD" I am told. Not only is that untrue,
because it is impossible for Yahuah to die or be tempted by evil in the
process, but it is also clearly stated that the Messiah had to be a human and
the sacrifice of death for humanity had to come at the hands of a human high
priest for the people and for himself. He had to overturn what Adam brought
into this world. A man brought sin into this world, and a man had to take it
1 For every high priest (Yahusha was the High Priest of Israel by bloodline of Zadok,
consecrated High Priest by Yahuah Zachariah Chapter 3) taken from
among men is appointed (by Yahuah Zachariah
Chapter 3) on behalf of men in things pertaining to Yahuah, in
order to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins; 2 he can deal gently with
the ignorant and misguided, since he himself also is beset with weakness; 3 and
because of it he is obligated to offer sacrifices for sins, as for the people, so
also for himself. 4 And no one takes the honor to himself, but receives it
when he is called by Yahuah, even as Aaron was. 5 So also Yahusha did not
glorify himself so as to become a high priest, but Yahuah who said to Yahusha
"YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU"; 6 just as Yahuah says
also in another passage, "YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER
OF MELCHIZEDEK." 7 In the days of Yahusha’s flesh (when he was fully human in every way Heb. 2:17),
Yahusha offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to
the One (God, Yahuah, The Shema) able to
save Yahusha from death (Yahusha did not rise from
the dead, he was risen by Yahuah), and Yahusha was heard because of
Yahusha’s piety (NOT because he was a demi-god! But
because of his reverent obedience to the Law see Zachariah Chapter 3).
8 Although Yahusha was a Son (not Yahuah),
Yahusha learned obedience (to the ONE GOD)
from the things which he suffered. 9 And having been made perfect (Yahusha was not born perfect being simply a man),
Yahusha became (he was not always, he BECAME after
his submission and death on Passover) to all those who obey Yahuah
and follow Yahusha’s example, the source of eternal salvation (his example is our source), 10 being designated
by Yahuah as a high priest (from among men verse 1)
according to the order of Melchizedek (see My book Melchizedek
and The Passover Lamb). 11 Concerning Yahusha we have much to
say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. (that is a true statement especially today).
So what Sha’ul is saying above, is that it took a human high
priest to offer the final sacrifice for himself and for all those in covenant
with him. As we read in Zachariah Chapter 3, Yahusha fulfilled his
responsibility, to show the way by example and be obedient to his role as the
Branch. As a result, Yahuah too fulfilled His promise (in Zachariah Chapter
3) and “forgave the sin of the land in one day” including Yahusha’s. When
Yahusha said “it is finished” Yahuah covered the second death decree and
released all those being held in bondage to death. We see in the Gospel account
that the graves gave up their dead at that moment. What we don’t realize
is that we all followed Yahusha that day in the resurrection just like he told
the thief on the stake next to him. You see, the resurrection is an event that occurs outside of
the boundaries of time (in the realm of the Spirit) and we witnessed the
first resurrection of the dead on that day. When Yahusha said it is finished
and Yahuah covered the second death decree (which was holding us in bondage
to death) and death was defeated. More info on the resurrection in My book The
Yahushaic Covenant Volume 1 – The Mediator...
We never quite get the real story from our modern-day
teachers, who are filled with The Spirit of the False Messiah
teaching “incarnation”. We do not learn the truth from anti-messianic “Jews”
who deny the Messiah leaving 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 to declare Yahuah is Yahusha and that
Yahuah had to come to Earth and die.
The problem is that we have not found an anointed teacher
and are listening to "self-appointed" ones with no understanding. Leading
us astray. It is of the utmost importance that we understand the sacrifice of
Yahusha, his humanity at the time, and “why” he was qualified to make atonement!
He was not Yahuah in the flesh, Yahuah did not come and die, and a God cannot
atone for humanity!
Does Yahuah forbid one human from sacrificing another
human... yes. But as with everything in Scripture, we cannot sound-bite that
restriction! We must use wisdom and seek out the "intent" of that
restriction, given that it appears the entire Plan of Salvation depends on what
"appears to be" a human sacrifice! Making Yahuah out to be a
hypocrite; or Yahusha's sacrifice ineffective and an abomination.
There are several flaws that must be addressed:
Blood does not cleanse of "sin"... WATER does through Mikveh.
Blood consummates marriage covenants (even human marriage with
breaking the hymen), and that is why Yahusha shed his blood. His blood was
shed to consume a marriage covenant, whereby we THROUGH Mikveh we are forgiven
our sins in covenant.
Yahusha's sacrifice was not a "human sacrifice" (where one
man sacrifices another), nor was it even a human sacrifice where Yahuah
sacrifices a man at all!
Yahusha "willingly went to his death" to save the lives of his
brothers! There is no greater love. It was one man willingly ready to die, and
a choice by that man to do so for the right reasons. He was not
"sacrificed unwillingly" by another. He literally orchestrated the
events on that Passover.
Yahusha's real sacrifice was his entire life, not his death. His death
was meaningless outside of his life, living the Torah by example, and giving
his life as a living sacrifice to his Father; to consummate the marriage
covenant by giving his life for his brothers.
There is a reason why one man cannot sacrifice another man. Man
cannot give "life", and is forbidden, therefore, from taking a
life... Man cannot promise to raise another man from the grave (nor grant
eternal life). This is why "human sacrifice" is forbidden.
The "shedding of blood" is required to consummate
any covenant, including human marriage (which is a shadow of the covenant we
enter into with Yahuah). Yahusha's "blood" does not cleanse from
sin, it consummates the relationship with Yahuah (required to have our sin
forgiven through Mikveh) by following Yahusha’s righteous example! Yahuah
reserves the right to give life, take life, and grant eternal life. The
restriction on human sacrifice does not apply to Yahuah (who has the power to
both raise from the dead and grant eternal life, not to mention the life we
have is his gift to us in the first place). Yahuah is not "taking"
anything that does not already belong to Him. And he did not even
"take" that from Yahusha, it was willingly offered in love.
Yahusha's sacrifice was efficient because it was not his
death, it was his obedient life that overturned the power of sin/death
brought into this world by Adam. As it took one man "Adam" to
introduce sin into this world, it took one man "Yahusha the second Adam"
to take it out. Yahusha, by willingly giving his entire life to Yahuah, living
in obedience to the Law, then willingly giving that sacrificial life back to
Yahuah (by dying to save his brothers), died innocent in the eyes of the Law.
Death’s power is held in sin, so if a man every died innocent, then Death would
be defeated. A God cannot accomplish that requirement. It had to be a man.
