Chapter 5

The Plan of Salvation

The Mediator and the “New Bride”

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!

Hosea 11

9 I will not carry out my fierce anger, nor will I devastate Ephraim again. For I am Yahuah, and not a man


Numbers 23:19

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 His promises)?

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:

John 20:17

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 Diving 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 the prophets).

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!

The Plan of Salvation through a Mediator

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!

Galatians 1

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 Numbers 23:19.

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 begotten divine).

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 “Father/Son” 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 the Heavenly Scroll and in the Earthly scrolls.

Romans 1

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

Hebrews 5

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!

Qualified to Mediate The Covenant and Atone for our sins as Eternal High Priest

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!

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 (Ezra 7:1, see 1 Chronicles 5:30) where he is placed ninth in descent from Phineas.

Ezra 7:1-4

...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 Melchizedek:

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, (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 bloodlines.

Hebrews 4:15

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)


Hebrews 1:4

So Yahusha became as much superior to the (other) messengers, as the name (Melchizedek) he has inherited (through blood lineage) is superior to theirs.

The Witness of Yahuah that Yahusha is the Messiah

Yahuah would then bare witness of this Messiah, with 3 concurring witnesses, water, blood, and spirit:


·         Water: he would be born human through his mother’s womb Psalms 22:9-10

·         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.


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) life.


Romans 1:3

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 Messiah


Yahuah and Yahusha enter into covenant

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.

Mark 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 3Yahuah’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 by.


*** 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:

Matthew 3:15

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 water)."

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.   

Yahuah chooses a new bride for His son

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.

Romans 9:24

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.

John 15:7

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


John 17:19-21

  "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)."


John 1:12

 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 Yahuah.

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; 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.

Revelation 13:8

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.

Psalm 19

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 its heat.

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.


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).


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), and they all became drowsy and fell asleep. 6 At midnight the cry rang out: “Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!”


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 (words 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.



How did Yahusha Defeat Death?

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.

Luke 20:36

and they can no longer die; for they are like the angels. They are God's children, since they are children of the resurrection.

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).

Hebrews 5

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 4The 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).

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).

2 John 7 - Beware of Antichrist Deceiver

7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world (teaching incarnation the Spirit of the False Messiah) who do not confess Yahusha the Messiah as coming in the flesh (but teach that Yahuah came in the flesh). This (spirit) is a deceiver and an antichrist. 8 Look to yourselves, that we do not lose those things we worked for, but that we may receive a full reward. 9 Whoever transgresses (blasphemes the Spirit of Yahuah) and does not abide in the doctrine of the Messiah (that he came in the flesh, not a god) does not have (the Spirit of) Yahuah. He who abides in the doctrine of the Messiah (that he came to Earth as a human being) has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine (but rather teaches incarnation), do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds (of committing blasphemy)

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).

John 14:6 

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).


John 10:3-4 

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 2:2121

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... IF we 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 talking about and 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.

Every one dies for their own sin!

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:

Deuteronomy 24:16 

"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 it. Yahusha died as all men do, he was not born into sin, our physical bodies die for our own sin. For all have sinned Romans 3:23. There was no exception in that statement. Original Sin is a false doctrine.  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.

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.

Romans 5:12 

"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:

Hebrews 2:14-15 

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."


Ezekiel 18:20

"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.”


Jeremiah 31:29-30

"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.

Proverbs 3 

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.


Deuteronomy 11 

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 world.

The Law of Sin and Death vs. The Law of the Spirit of Life

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:

Deuteronomy 5
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…



The Law of Sin and Death

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.

The Law of the Spirit of Life

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 Law).

With the understanding of terms, it becomes clear what Sha’ul the Apostle is saying in Romans 1.

Romans 8 

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 Spirit

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 perfection.

Matthew 3:15

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 water)."

Then Yahusha fled into the desert where Yahuah consecrated him High Priest personally and said:

Zechariah 3

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.


Now, continuing 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).

Romans 7:14 

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. 14For we know that the Law is spiritual, but I am of flesh, sold into bondage to sin.  


Romans 2:13 

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.


Yahusha would send “the Comforter”

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.

Colossians 2

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 with Yahusha.



If Yahusha was “God”… We are Dead in Our Sins!

This cycle of “being born to die, and dying guilty of sin to justify that death” 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 Mikveh!

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 resurrection “path”.

Matthew 19:28

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”?

Hebrews 5:8-9 

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 complete obedience to the Law, having his sin forgiven through Mikveh, demonstrating a contrite spirit and circumcised heart, and 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, and offering.

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:

James 2:16-26 

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:

Hebrews 2 

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.


The Messiah had to be 100% human!

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".

How could a man do all the work of salvation?

... “IT HAD TO BE GOD"... actually, it is the exact opposite!

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 out.

Hebrews 5 
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...


Human Sacrifice or Love Offering?

We never quite get the real story from our modern day teachers filled with the Spirit of the False Messiah teaching “incarnation”, and 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!

Human sacrifice forbidden

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:

1.  Blood does not cleanse of "sin"... WATER does through Mikveh.

2.  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.

3.  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!

4.  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.

5.  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.  

Shedding blood to consummate covenants is required...

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 life pleased Yahuah

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.
