Chapter 5

Adopted through Mikveh, begotten through resurrection



The first century Nazarenes rejected incarnation and only accepted the “Virgin Birth” as a sign of Yahusha’s anointing. These Nazarenes knew the Messiah and followed him in person or followed his disciples. They believed that Yahusha was adopted when he was Mikveh’d and Yahuah declared for the first time “this is My son, in whom I am well pleased”. Yahusha was filled with the Spirit upon being washed clean with Living Water which was his guarantee that Yahuah would raise him from the dead. This is, in fact, exactly what the Scriptures teach.  In this chapter, I am going to demonstrate the concept of the “family of Yahuah”, of which, Yahusha is the first begotten through resurrection (not human birth or creation).

Yahusha came to reveal the concept that Yahuah’s purpose in Creation was to beget a family. Yahuah and Yahusha entered into covenant to become “Father and Son” through adoption (born again), then literally through resurrection.

‘Echad’ is One Family!

Sha’ul clearly identified The Yahushaic Covenant as an Adoption Covenant with Yahuah, not a “marriage”.

Ephesians 1
4 just as Yahuah chose us in (Marriage Covenant with) Yahusha before the foundation of the world (The Plan of Salvation was written in the Stars as a Bridegroom running the course of a Wedding, Psalm 19), 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, Matthew 5:1-12 and John 3:29 and Revelation 8:23 and Mark 2:18-20 and ... etc.) to Himself (the Father of the Bridegroom), according to the kind intention of His Will (to create 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 Declared very clearly and explicitly...

John 1:12

Yet to all who did receive Yahusha (as the Groom), to those who believed in (the Marriage Covenant that bears) his name (The Yahushaic Covenant), Yahusha (through Marriage) gave them (who are properly in Covenant) the right to become Children of Yahuah (by Law).


Hebrews 2

11 For both He Who sanctifies (Yahuah) and those who are sanctified (Yahusha and the rest of the sons) are all from one Father (Adoption Covenant); 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 in Covenant of Marriage).”


John 3:29
29 He 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 John Chapter 1. He is the Fulfillment of the Debar/Predestined Plan in the flesh).

Matthew 25

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 before he returns to wed His Bride fulfilling the Fall Feasts), and they all became drowsy and fell asleep (lost contact with the head, the meaning of The Yahushaic Covenant). 6 At midnight the cry rang out: “Here’s the Bridegroom! Come out to meet him!” (but they were misled and did not realize by marrying Yahusha they would become Children of Yahuah) -----


Revelation 19

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 Psalm, 119:89) are the True Words of Yahuah (as John was given Understanding of the meaning of the stars).”



One… Echad or Yachad?

We see Yahusha teach this very thing. Yet another false teaching going around today is “Echad means Yahuah IS Yahusha”! We see that Yahusha did claim to be “one” with Yahuah.

John 10

30 I and my Father are one.

The question is, did he mean “echad” or “yachad”? In the NT, when Yahusha said "I and the father are one" he defined what he meant later in that same book as yachad not echad. Yachad means “unified one” where echad means “the only one”. 

The concept of "one" as it relates to Yahusha and Yahuah (and indeed all of us) is simple, it is “one Family/Yachad”. It was Yahusha that said he was "One" with Yahuah but wall we have is the Greek not the Hebrew to know which one he meant, so let us let Yahusha himself define what that means. Did he teach he was echad with Yahuah? Absolutely not... a little later in that same book, Yahusha clearly defined what he himself meant by that (as Scripture ALWAYS interprets Scripture); we are ONE through Covenant in Mind, Will, purpose, Spirit, and Family... He is our Father, we are His Children and Yahusha is our Brother.  We are all YACHAD with Yahuah not Echad.

John 17:19-21

"And for their sakes I sanctify myself (as a Son in Covenant with Yahuah), that they also might be sanctified through the truth (that by entering into a Marriage Covenant with me, they will become Children of Yahuah by Law, John 1:12). Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word (confess that Yahusha is our Messiah, our Mediating High Priest, our elder Brother in Resurrection order, our Bridegroom through Marriage); That they all may be one (Family as Children of Yahuah); as Thou, Father, art in (an Adoption Covenant with) me (through Resurrection to become my Father), and I in (Covenant with) thee (to become Your Firstborn from the dead, SON), that they also may be one (Family) in (Covenant with) us: that the world may believe that Thou hast sent me (in Fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll, where Yahusha was given Glory as coming King with Yahuah in The Beginning)."


Hebrews 10:7

Then I said, 'Here I am--it is written about me in the Heavenly Scroll-- I have come to do Your Will, my God (Yahuah is Yahusha’s “God” too!)


Matthew 6:10

Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done, on Earth as it is (written) in (the) Heaven(ly Scroll).

So, by Yahusha’s own definition, “One” is through Covenant! Beware of false teachers.


Adoption... Resurrection

Our “Hope” is in the Resurrection of the dead, which is the Transposition of our physical bodies to our Eternal bodies. It is literally, the Adoption… as literal sons/daughters of Yahuah. As I demonstrated earlier in this book, the Original Nazarenes who knew Yahusha personally understood he was born human and adopted into the Family of Yahuah through Mikveh! This is the “yearning” we feel inside our Spirits, as we have been given an earnest guarantee (the Ruach given once we are Mikveh’d) that Yahuah will Beget us Divine, just like He did Yahusha... Mikveh when the guarantee is given that we will be adopted into the Family just like it was Yahusha’s.

Romans 8:23

And not only [they], but ourselves also, which have the First Fruits of the Spirit even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the Adoption, the Redemption of our body.

Yahuah entered into an Adoption Covenant with Yahusha to be his Father not his Husband.

2 Samuel 7

14 I will be his Father, and he shall be My Son. If he commits iniquity, I will chasten him with the rod of men, and with the stripes of the children of men (which is exactly what happened to Yahusha and “how” he was perfected!)

Just as it was foretold...

Luke 1

32 He will be great, and will be called The Son of the Highest; and Yahuah will give him (they are not the same being) The Throne of His father David.

This was Fulfilled when Yahuah Resurrected Yahusha (not when he was born to Mary/Joseph).

Acts 13

33 Yahuah has Fulfilled this for us their children, in that He has risen up Yahusha. As it is also written in the second Psalm: "You are My Son, Today I have Begotten You (upon Resurrection NOT human birth)."

All Children of Yahuah are ‘Begotten through Resurrection’, and it is then they are Divine, not before...

Luke 20

36 for they cannot even die anymore, because they are (eternal) like Angels, and are (fully begotten) Sons of Yahuah, being Sons of the Resurrection (not human birth, Yahusha died so obviously, he was NOT fully Begotten until after his ‘Adoption through Resurrection’. Fully Begotten Sons of Yahuah cannot die!).

Revelation 21

7 He that overcomes (death through Resurrection) shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be My Son (not wife).

All those who enter into the Marriage Covenant with Yahusha (The Yahushaic Covenant) will be Begotten (Adopted) through Resurrection the same way Yahusha was.

Galatians 4

4 But when the time had fully come, Yahuah sent His (future Begotten) Son, born of a woman (another way of saying he was 100% human, just like Yahusha said of John the Baptist in Matthew 11:11. This does not mean Joseph was not his father, it is an idiom), born under The Law, 5 to redeem those held under the (Death Decrees which are the) curse of The Law, that we might receive our Adoption as Sons. 6 And because you are Sons, Yahuah sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts on Shav'uot, crying out, “Abba, Father!”


Ephesians 1

4For Yahuah chose us in Himself before the foundation of the world (just like He did Yahusha, Yahusha was Predetermined in the ‘Plan of Salvation’, he did NOT pre-exist) to be Holy and blameless in His Presence. In love 5 Yahuah Predestined us for Adoption as His Sons in Marriage Covenant with Yahusha the Messiah, according to the good pleasure of His Will to Beget a Family, 6 to the Praise of Yahuah's Glorious Grace, which Yahuah has freely given us in the Beloved Family of Elohim


Romans 8:15

For you have not received a spirit of slavery leading to fear again, but you have received a Spirit of Adoption as Sons by which we cry out, "Abba! Father!"


1 John 3:1-2

See how great a Love the Father (not husband) has bestowed on us, that we would be called Children of Yahuah (not His wife); and such we are for this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know him (our Elder Brother Yahusha). Beloved, now we are Children of Yahuah, and it has not appeared as yet what we will, be we know that when Yahusha appears, we will be like him (we too, will be Divine Sons, he is our brother, NOT our god)


Romans 8:21

that the Creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the Freedom of the Glory of the Children (not wife) of Yahuah. -----

Yahusha was the first human to be perfected and risen Divinely. He is the First of the Harvest (First of the First Fruits of the grave), with many more Sons/Daughters to come!

1 Corinthians 15:23

But there is an order to this Resurrection: Yahusha was raised as the First of the Harvest (he is part of the Harvest too, just like the rest of us Children); then all (of the Bride) who belong to Yahusha (the Groom) will be raised (as Adopted Children in Law of Yahuah) when he comes back.


John 1

11 He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him. 12 But to all (the Bride) who did receive Him (as the Groom in keeping The Holy Days), to those who believed in (the Marriage Covenant that bears) His name, He gave the right to become Children of God — 13 Children born not of blood (but of Spirit), nor will of the flesh (at human conception), nor will of man (but the Plan of Salvation), but born of Yahuah (the Ruach by the Power of the Resurrection just like Yahusha).



Miraculous Births are for a Sign... not to Deify

We are taught the Babylonian Doctrine of Incarnation using the birth of the Messiah to justify the Madonna and Child story. I want to address this shortly here because a miraculous birth does not imply that Yahuah came to Earth as a man or that Yahusha is a demi-god! 

How can the Virgin Birth be a “fundamental doctrine” when it is never mentioned even as a Doctrine at all by anyone in the Bible? It was not taught by Yahusha, or by any of the writers in The Yahushaic Covenant. As I have shown, it was rejected outright by the Nazarenes for 500 years and it found its way into our Bibles through syncretism and Hellenism.

It was accepted in limited form by the first century Nazarenes only to mean the Yahusha was the Firstborn Son of Joseph and Miriam to prove his right to the Throne of David. Miriam’s womb was a “virgin womb” meaning she had never had a child before. What we are not taught (conveniently) is that even if there were a Miracle performed at Yahusha’s birth (which there very well may have been) it was to be expected!

Many men in The Bible who were instrumental in the Plan of Salvation were born highly anointed by Yahuah through Miraculous births as a “sign”. Each one’s birth announced by an Angel. Each one of these men were born Miraculously outside of sexual intercourse, yet the “seed” of their father was used by Yahuah in the conception process:

The Miraculous Birth of Adam
Of course, Adam didn't have any parents and Adam is directly called the Son of Yahuah in the most literal terms. Adam had NO parents at all male or female, but the Breath of Yahuah Alone gave Adam life. Yet... we do not worship Adam as equal to Yahuah and part of a polytheistic deity! Why is Adam considered human when it was truly the Breath of Yahuah from which he originated?


The Miraculous Birth of Isaac
Isaac was the Chosen One and brought about in a Miraculous way to Abraham and Sara who BOTH were his parents. Abraham and Sara had given up on sexually conceiving and had turned to a slave woman Hagar to conceive the child and believed Ishmael to be the fulfillment of the Promise. Not only were they no longer trying, but Sara’s womb was dead and she didn’t believe it. But that Miracle did not make Isaac part of a GODHEAD. We do not worship Isaac as equal to Yahuah and part of a polytheistic deity! In the account of Isaac’s Miraculous Birth in Genesis we know Sara’s womb was “dead” and Sara too, conceived a child of Promise named Isaac through the Miraculous intervention of the Angel of Yahuah. This child too, was “brought” by an Angel of Yahuah and conceived with “The Spirit of Holiness” which means set apart. How does this differ from Mary/Joseph? It doesn't. Why is Abraham considered the biological father of Isaac when it was Yahuah Who gave Sara the child? Because Yahuah used Abraham's seed in the Miracle.


The Miraculous Birth of Sampson
Just like Sampson was a Chosen One from the womb, a Nazarite to God, a Righteous Judge, and brought about in a Miraculous way to Manoah and his wife who WERE BOTH his true parents. But that did not make Sampson part of a GODHEAD. We do not worship Sampson as equal to Yahuah and part of a polytheistic deity! In Judges 13:2-5, Manoah’s wife was barren and unable to have children and at that time the act of sex was only performed to provide an heir, so it is highly doubtful Manoah was having a lot of sex with his barren wife. The Angel of Yahuah appeared to her too, and gave her a son named Sampson who was a “Nazarite to Yahuah”. How does this differ from Mary/Joseph? It doesn´t. Why is Manoah considered the biological father of Sampson when it was Yahuah Who gave his wife the child? Because Yahuah used Manoah´s seed in performing the Miracle.


The Miraculous Birth of John the Baptist
The Miraculous birth of John the Baptist is recounted in Luke’s Gospel where we learn of the elderly Priest Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth, who was barren. While Zechariah was performing his priestly duties in The Temple (not out having sex with his wife), the Angel Gabriel came to him and prophesied the birth of a son. Because Zechariah doubted the Word of the Angel, he was struck dumb until the day of the birth, at which time, filled with the Holy Spirit, he proclaimed his prophetic canticle (Lk 1:68-79). But... this did NOT make John the Baptist part of the GODHEAD. We do not worship John as equal to Yahuah and part of a polytheistic deity! Why is Zechariah considered the biological father of John when it was Yahuah Who gave Elizabeth the child? Because Yahuah used Zechariah´s seed in performing the Miracle.

In each case above, Yahuah came and announced the birth of a child through a Messenger then brought about that birth in a Miraculous way using the seed of the biological father… outside of sexual conception. Yahusha is different in that he was the most anointed of all and in true form Yahuah came to announce his birth through a Messenger and then in a Miraculous way the child was conceived with the seed of his biological father. Yahuah “comes over” all mothers with His Ruach and “Breathes” (that is what the Ruach is, the Breath of Yahuah, not some physical seed) life into the child in the womb. Just like He did Miriam.

Isaiah was not prophesying a literal human woman would give a virgin birth... he was reading The Heavenly Scroll, and telling us this "Sign" would announce the birth of the Messiah at the turn of the Age from Aries to Pisces. The constellation Virgo would give birth to the King planet Jupiter as laid out in Revelation 12, the same sign heralds his return on the turn of Pisces to Aquarius when Yahusha returns, called The Sign of the Son of Man.





Born Again: Baptism by Water or Fire or both? What is The Way?

There seems to be confusion about exactly what baptism is, and what role "Water" plays in context of "Fire". We see in Scripture, the Command to be immersed in Living Water, and a “baptism by Fire” mentioned. Some teach Water was replaced by Fire, others understand the Requirement to be Mikveh’d in Living Water, but struggle to understand exactly what baptism by Fire means.

Few teachers understand this themselves, that is why there is a lack of Understanding among the people. So, let me shed some Light on this, in context, letting Scripture interpret Scripture “line upon line, precept upon precept”; and lay down “sound doctrine” to overcome “sound bite doctrine” to help us all fully comprehend the process of being “born again” through Living Water and Fire.

Before we go any further, let’s search the Scriptures to understand the Mystery Language, and discern what Living Water and Fire ‘represent’ in The Kingdom of Yahuah (which is a Spiritual Kingdom).

Living Water

Living Water represents the life giving “Breath” of Yahuah known as The Ruach or “Spirit of God”. Whenever you see mention of rain, water, or lack thereof, it is speaking of “inspiration from above”.

Yahusha Fulfills the sign of Aquarius in The Heavenly Scroll, as he is “the Water Bearer” who pours Living Water over all the Earth.

Isaiah 32:15

“Until the Spirit is poured out upon us from on high (Fulfillment of Aquarius in The Heavenly Scroll), and the wilderness becomes a fertile field, and the fertile field is considered as a forest.

Just as he Promised in John 14:15, John 14:26, and John 15:26. This is in Fulfillment of Isaiah, as we see Living Water is a metaphor of His Spirit (Ruach):

Isaiah 44

3 For I will pour out (Living) Water on the thirsty land (Mikveh) and streams on the dry ground; I will pour out My Spirit on your Offspring (Fulfillment of Aquarius in The Heavenly Scroll) and My Blessing on your Descendants; 4 and they will spring up among the grass like poplars by streams of water.” … and “with joy you will draw water from the ‘Wells of Salvation’ (reference to the Messiah who is the Living Water and Salvation of Yahuah, John 7:38)”

The “image of Aquarius” fits Isaiah 44 perfectly, below. We see the grave giving up the dead (the skull), The Branch pouring out Living Water from on High, poplars popping up by the stream of Living Water.

We see Yahusha confirm the physical to Spiritual parallel of Living Water/Spirit as “Streams of Living Water” flow from within us who have been filled with The Ruach (Spirit): 

John 7:38

To the one who believes in me, it is just as the Scripture has said: 'Streams of Living Water will flow from within him.'"Fire

Fire – represents the Word of Yahuah… His Law. In the physical Covenant of Moses, we are Commanded to put tzitzits on the four corners of our garments, to show outwardly that we were “clothed in The Law of Yahuah” (rather immersed in His Word). Yahuah’s Word is the that “Fire”.

Jeremiah 23:29

“Is not My word like Fire," declares Yahuah”


1 Corinthians 3

13 each one’s work will become clear; for The Day will Declare it, because their works will be revealed by Fire; and the Fire will test each one’s work, of what sort it is.

With that understanding in mind, let us solve the puzzle of Living Water and Fire and come to a firm Understanding of the Purpose of Mikveh.

Later in this book, I will explain how Yahusha Fulfilled the pictograph (constellation) of Aquarius.
