Did Yahusha pre-exist …
and empty himself of his Divinity and come down from heaven?

From my book “The Yahushaic Covenant Volume 1: The Mediator”

Philippians 2:7 – The Truth in context

What about this one! We are taught the following sound bite taken totally out of context, and we are “told” that it IMPLIES Yahusha pre-existed, emptied himself of his Divinity, and came to Earth as a man (God in the flesh)…  below is the out of context sound bite used to justify this false teaching.

Philippians 2:7

6 Who, existing in the form of God, did not consider equality with Yahuah a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied Himself, taking the form of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to death—even death on a cross.

I am going to do what I do and teach us SOUND DOCTRINE line upon line and precept upon precept and overcome this abuse of the Scriptures called SOUNDBITE DOCTRINE taken out of context.  I am going to show us all exactly what Sha’ul meant in context of The Plan of Salvation. Below is the proper interpretation of this verse IN CONTEXT of The Plan of Salvation.

Yahusha had to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll and empty himself of his right to the throne and serve those he would later rule, give this life up as a ransom to rule in the next!

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! (Matthew 6:10)


Matthew 6:10

Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is (written) in (the) heaven(ly scroll).

“The Son of Man” is a direct reference to The Heavenly Scroll where Orion is “the Son of Man Riding on the Clouds (Milky Way) of Heaven (shamayim… the stars)

The Son of Man coming in the clouds of heaven

Below is The Plan of Salvation written into the fabric of Creation as a witness to all mankind by The Creator on Day 4… to be fulfilled in the 4th Prophetic Day as Yahusha is the DEBAR (predestined plan) fulfilled in the flesh (John 1).

VIRGO: A young maiden will give a virgin birth (The Branch will be heir as the firstborn son to the Throne/Melchi and the Office of High Priest of the House of Zadok/Tsedek) to a beautiful glorious and righteous branch (this is why The Messiah is referred to as The Branch by all the prophets who read The Heavenly Scroll).  The seed (star Spica) of the woman will be a man of humiliation (Suffering Servant) to rise to be the desire of nations (King of all Kings)  and will become exalted first as shepherd (High Priest) then as harvester (Conquering King).  LIBRA: The scales demand a price (dowry) to be paid (to redeem the Bride) of this seed, a cross to endure; the victim will be slain (to save his brothers and prove himself worthy to rule over them) and purchase a crown (to sit at the Right Hand of The Creator). SCORPIO: There is a conflict between the seed and the serpent (Orion the Son of Man battles The Dragon) leading to a struggle with the enemy (over who is the fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll, Yahusha or Ba’al Shamayim), the enemy is vanquished (by The Word of His Testimony). SAGITTARIUS: The double-natured seed (King/Melchi and High Priest/Tsedek … Melchizedek) triumphs as a warrior and pleases the heavens, builds fires of punishment, casts down the dragon. CAPRICORNUS: Eternal life comes from his death (he is granted eternal life by the power of the resurrection), he’s the Arrow of God, he is pierced, yet springs up again in abundant life (the firstborn of the dead).  AQUARIUS: He pours out “living water” from on high, humanity drinks of the heavenly river and the faithful live again, he is the deliverer of the good news (Gospel), Carrying the Cross over the earth. PISCES: The Redeemer’s (the Groom pays the dowry to redeem his Bride) people (the Bride) multiplied, supported and led by the Lamb, The Bride is exposed on earth, the Bridegroom is exalted. ARIES: The Lamb is found worthy (by walking The Way and giving his life as a lamb slain in the 4,000th year when the Age of Aries “dies” and Pisces begins), the Bride is made ready, Satan is bound, the strong man triumphs. TAURUS: The conquering Ruler comes, the sublime vanquisher, to execute the great judgment, he is the ruling Shepherd King (double-natured seed). GEMINI: The Marriage of the Lamb (The Fall Feasts), the enemy is trodden down (Days of Awe), the Prince comes in great Glory (Feast of Trumpets). CANCER: The great Bride, the two Houses of Judah and Israel are united in marriage (Yom Kippur), they are brought safely into the kingdom (Feast of Tabernacles). LEO: The Lion King is aroused for rending, the Serpent flees, the Bowl of Wrath is upon him, his Carcass is devoured. The Lion of the tribe of Judah rules as King (Age of Aquarius).



Plan of Salvation written in the stars

In Mark Chapter 10 we see Yahusha teaching his role as The Branch to empty himself of the right to rule the Earth as Conquering King to walk the path of High Priest and Suffering Servant to die to pay the dowry and ransom/redeem his Bride:

Mark 10

44 and whoever (fulfills The Heavenly Scroll) wants to be first (rule as The Lion of the Tribe of Judah/LEO) must be the slave of all (first come as The Suffering Servant to die for his Bride LIBRA). 45 For even the Son of Man (in The Heavenly Scroll) did not come (the first time in the 4,000th year as foretold in The Heavenly Scroll to die at the end of The Age of Aries the the Lamb click here) to be served (as Conquering King TAURUS), but (to empty himself of his right to rule VIRGO and) to serve (as The Suffering Servant CAPRICORN), and to give His life as a ransom (dowry CAPRICORN) for many (to redeem his Bride from death and call her out from among the nations Age of Pisces).”

We see Sha’ul teach the same thing, as The Age of Pisces is The Messianic Age when The Messiah reclaims his Bride from among the nations.  This is why The Nazarenes used the fish symbol it is the symbol of The Messianic Age of Pisces:

Titus 2

14 Yahusha (emptied himself of his right to rule mankind VIRGO) gave himself (to Yahuah as High Priest) for us to redeem us (pay the dowry PISCES) from all lawlessness and to purify for Himself a people (Bride/PISCES) for His own possession, zealous for good deeds.




The Natural Body came first, THEN the Spiritual Body

Yahusha did not exist Spiritually first, then “empty himself of his divinity” … he existed first in the flesh physically in the likeness of all man:


1 Corinthians 15

45 So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being;” the last Adam BECAME (by the power of the resurrection Romans 1:2-4 he did not preexist) a life-giving spirit. 46 The spiritual (body), however, was not first, but the natural (body), and then the spiritual (body). 47 The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from what is written in The Heavenly Scroll...

THEN he was raised Divine by the power of the resurrection.


Romans 1

2 concerning Yahusha, which Yahuah PROMISED beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures (he did not pre-exist), 3 concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David (through both parents) according to the flesh (flesh 'Sarki' g4561: Thayer's def =#4 - born to two human parents, outside ANY Divine Influence, prone to sin, and opposed to Yahuah), 4 who was declared (Divine) the Son of Yahuah with power by the resurrection from the dead (not his human birth, he the firstborn of the dead Col 1:8 and Revelation 1:5 and first of the resurrection 1 Cor 15:23 and first fruits of the grave 1 Cor 15:20), according to the Spirit of holiness (Yahuah’s Spiritual Seed given as an earnest guarantee after his Mikveh when he was born-again and adopted), Yahusha the Messiah

Yahuah promised Yahusha the throne IF he first emptied himself of his right to rule and served as High Priest and fulfilled The Heavenly Scroll.

Zechariah 3 - Yahusha's sin forgiven through Mikveh, Yahuah consecrates Yahusha High Priest directly, and enters into The Yahushaic Covenant to "forgive our sin"

1 Then he showed me Yahusha the high priest standing before the angel of YHVH, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 YHVH (through His proxy The Angel before whom stood Yahusha and Satan) said to Satan, “YHVH rebuke you, Satan! YHVH, who has chosen Jerusalem (because Satan is attempting to get Yahusha NOT to empty himself of his right to the throne and take the kingdom by force Matthew 4:9), rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire (Yahusha had been in the desert for 40 days with little food Matthew 4:2)?”


3 Now Yahusha was dressed in filthy clothes (metaphor of sin Isaiah 64:6) as he stood before the angel. 4 The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then YHVH said to Yahusha, “See, I have taken away your sin (Yahusha had just been Mikveh'd clean of his sin by John to fulfill the Righteous Requirements of The Law Matthew 3:13-17), and I will put fine garments (of the High Priest) on you.”


5 Then I said, “Put a clean turban (of the High Priest Hebrews 4:15) on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him (in the garments of the High Priest), while the angel of YHVH stood by.


6 The angel of YHVH gave this charge to Yahusha (here is The Yahushaic Covenant!)


7 “This is what YHVH Almighty says: ‘IF (YHVH makes a conditional promise, a COVENANT) you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements (of The Branch foretold in The Heavenly Scroll to come FIRST as Suffering Servant and die THEN Conquering King rule), THEN (here is the promise if he fulfills The Heavenly Scroll as The Glorious Righteous Branch Virgo) you will govern my house (i.e. King over the government that will govern creation Isaiah 9:6 and Constellation LEO) and have charge of my courts (Eternal Judge 2 Cor 5:10), and I will give you a place (right hand of YHVH Mark 16:19) 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 not The Branch just shadows/prototypes): I am going to bring (you) My servant (Isaiah 61 from this point forward), The Branch (he is The Messiah and fulfillment of The Heavenly Scroll Virgo).


9 See, the stone I have set in front of Yahusha! There are seven streams of living water (eyes) on that one stone (witness written in stone as Yahusha was full of the 7 Spirits Revelation 5:6), and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says YHVH Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day (Yahuah will fulfill His promise to "forgive our iniquity and remember our sin no more" in covenant with Yahusha).




The Jews rejected Yahusha for not disobeying Yahuah’s Will and coming first as The Conquering King

The Jews knew Yahusha was heir to the throne and were trying to convince him to disobey The Heavenly Scroll (and Feast Cycle) and seat him as their King to liberate them from Roman occupation.

This was what the temptation in the desert after Yahusha’s mikveh was all about. Satan was tempting Yahusha not to “empty himself of his right to be king” and if Yahusha would deny his destiny to first serve as High Priest and die, then Satan would give him the Kingdoms of this World and Yahusha would rule in this life.

Matthew 4:1-11

Then Yahusha was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil (Zechariah 3:1). 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry (like a stick snatched from the fire of the hot sun Zechariah 3:2).... 8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world (Jerusalem specifically and Satan was rebuked because Jerusalem is not his to give away Zechariah 3:1) and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you (if you will deny Yahuah's Will to empty yourself of your right to Rule as Conquering King and take up the role of High Priest to die as Suffering Servant),” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me. (Zechariah 3:1)” 10 Yahusha said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Yahuah your Elohim, and serve him only.’” 11 Then the devil left him (to accuse him before Yahuah Zechariah 3:1), and angels came and attended him (Zechariah 3:1).

Satan was tempting Yahusha’s faith in his role proclaimed in the stars to come first as the suffering servant (in the 4,000th year) to die (as a Lamb that is slaughtered at the turn of the Age of Aries to Pisces).  Yahusha could not rule as King for eternity without first dying to redeem the ones he would later rule in the next life as Conquering King in the 6,000th year at the turn of the Age of Pisces to Aquarius.


No one had ever defeated death!  This is why Yahusha was “scared to death to die”…

Hebrews 5:7

During the days of Yahusha’s life on earth (when he was imperfect, disobedient and LEARNING obedience Hebrews 5:8-9), he offered up prayers and petitions (repentance) with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death (the penalty of sin/disobedience and he was scared to death to die Matthew 26:28), and he was heard because of his reverent submission to Yahuah (he walked The Way!).


Matthew 26

38 Then he said to them, "My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death (I am scared to death to die). Stay here and keep watch with me (while I go and try and get out of it 3 times because I am scared to death to die)." 39 Going a little farther, He fell facedown and prayed, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me. Yet not as I will, but as You will.”




The King of All Kings had to humble/empty himself of his right to rule the Earth

Yahusha was the most royal human being ever born! He was born heir to the throne of EVERY human dynasty. He would very easily have assumed the throne over Babylon, Persia, Egypt, Rome, Israel and more and taken his place as King of Kings… but that was not The Plan of Salvation.

The King of All Kings… the lineage of Yahusha the Messiah

If he opted not to empty himself of his right to rule, he would have died and ceased to exist and everyone else with him. If he emptied himself of his right to rule, and serve as High Priest and give his life as a ransom, then Yahuah promised to raise him from the dead and he would rule for all eternity and redeem us all from death.

But no one had ever been raised from the dead eternal and that took AMAZING faith to give up the right to be the ruler of the Earth, empty himself of his royal heritage, and take up the role of Suffering Servant and die… even death on a cross. Even still… Yahusha’s faith wavered, going to the garden THREE times to get out of having to die on Passover, and literally crying out to Yahuah to honor His promises and save him from death. Does this sound like a “pre-existing demi-god” to you? What would Yahusha have to fear if he were really a god who “emptied himself of his Divinity and came to Earth as a man” knowing death was nothing to fear that he preexisted the life in the first place!

Hebrews 5:7

During the days of Yahusha’s life on earth (when he was imperfect, disobedient and LEARNING obedience Hebrews 5:8-9), he offered up prayers and petitions (repentance) with fervent cries and tears to the one who could save him from death (the penalty of sin/disobedience and he was scared to death to die Matthew 26:28), and he was heard because of his reverent submission to Yahuah (he walked The Way!).




This is The Plan of Salvation!

Written in the stars and rehearsed each and every year called The Feast Cycle/Holy Days/Appointed Times. Yahusha had to empty himself of his right to rule all mankind and fulfill The Plan of Salvation as Eternal Royal High Priest of the House of Zadok and give his life first.  He must come first and fulfill The Spring Feasts as Suffering Servant THEN return to fulfill the Fall Feasts as Conquering King.

Now, let’s read the verse in question… in context. And we see it is an amazing proclamation of The Plan of Salvation NOT that Yahusha was a pagan demi-god.

Philippians 2

6 Who, existing in the IMAGE of God (not just Yahusha but all of us were created and exist in the “Image of “God” Genesis 1:27), did not consider equality with Yahuah a thing to be grasped (because it is blasphemy… he could not even wrap his mind around the notion he was “God in the flesh” which is an oxymoron), 7 but (Yahusha came to fulfill The Heavenly Scroll Hebrews 10:7 and Matthew 6:10) emptied/humbled Himself (of his right to be King in this life The Conquering King), taking the form (instead) of a servant (The Suffering Servant and fulfill The Spring Feasts in the proper order), being made (created by Yahuah) in human likeness (not a demi-god, fully human in EVERY way Hebrews 2:17). 8 And being found in appearance as a man (‘in the flesh’ not a god), He humbled Himself (to the Will of Yahuah) and became obedient (to The Heavenly Scroll Hebrews 10:7 and Matthew 6:10) to death (to pay the dowry and redeem his Bride Mark 10:44) — even death on a cross (on Passover as foretold in the stars LIBRA).


Beware of false teachers, and sound bite implied lies.
