"Master, will there only be a few people saved?"  (Luke 13:23)

Someone once asked the Savior, “Lord, will there only be a few people saved” to which the Messiah answered “Strive to enter at the Narrow Gate, for many I tell you will seek to enter and will not be able to" (Luke 13:23-24).... 

"Many will say to Me on that day, ' Lord, Lord,...and then I will declare to them, I never knew you; depart from me you who practice LAWLESSNESS" (Matt 7:22-23)  - read more

The Heavenly Father's Name

Exo 3:15  Elohim, furthermore, said to Moses, "Yahuweh, ....' This is My name forever, and this is My memorial-name to all generations.

Did you know that the Heavenly Father put His Name in His book, the Bible, over 6,823 times? Why is it than that most people that read the Bible, Jew and Christian alike, never heard of the Almighty's Name? Is it important that you know the heavenly Fathe's Name?

Psa 83:18 That they may know that You alone, whose name is Yahuweh, Are the Most High over all the earth.

Isa 52:6 "Therefore My people shall know My name; therefore in that day I am the one who is speaking, 'Here I am.'"

       Mal 3:16 Then those who feared Yahuweh spoke to one another, and Yahuweh gave attention and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before Him for those who fear Yahuweh and who esteem His name.

       Mat 6:9 "Pray, then, in this way: 'Our Father who is in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.

       Rom 9:17 For the Scripture says to Pharaoh, "for this very purpose I raised you up, to demonstrate my power in you and that My Name might be proclaimed throughout the whole earth."

Did you know that the name 'Jesus' doesn't appear in the 1611 KJV Bible, not one single time!

Of course I'm not referring to the King James Bible used today, which is roughly the 25th revision of the original 1611 version. I'm referring to the original 1611 KJV.The name Jesus IS NOT in there one single time. Why? Read on to find the answer.

Are you aware that the letter “J” did not exist in any language on the face of the  earth until the year 1520 A.D, and it did not come into popular use for roughly another 100 years. Consequently when the 1611 KJV was written the letter 'J' did not appear in it, not one single time.. Let me repeat that, “the original 1611 King James Bible does not contain the letter 'J' not even one time. If the letter 'J' didn't exist until the year 1520, and was never used in the 1611 King James Bible, than how could the Messiah's name have been pronounce “Jesus”? The answer is “it wasn't”. The One who died for the sins of Israel was never called by the name 'Jesus', nor did he or anyone else in his day ever hear the name 'Jesus'. Why? Because the name 'Jesus' would not have existed for roughly another 1,500 years. With that being the case then what name was Peter talking about when he said

Act 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved

If the name 'Jesus' did not exist when Peter made this statement then what is the name by which we must be saved? For the answer as to what name it is that we must call on to be saved  click here.

"I said YOU are gods"  John 10:34

Who are these "gods" that the Messiah is referring to?

When the Jews accused the Messiah of claiming to be God he quoted Psalm 82:6 and asked the question "If He, that is the Heavenly Father Yahuweh, called them, that is the judges of Israel, gods then why do you accuse me of blasphemy for saying that I am the Son of God?"

Most Christians are unaware of the fact that along with the judges of Israel being called 'gods' the angels, Moses, and Samuel the prophet are also referred to as 'gods' in the Bible. How is that possible when Yahuweh Himself tells us that "there is no God but Me" (Isaiah 43:10)?   "click here"  to find out the answer to this very important question.

        The Trinity  -  Really?

 

With billions of Christians believing in a Triune god, that is a 3 in 1 god known as the  "Trinity" one would think that the Trinity is talked about throughout the entire Bible, and yet the fact is that such terms as "the Trinity", 'god the Son', 'god the Holy Spirit' or the 1st and 2nd persons of anything, are never mentioned in the Bible, not one single time. Why is that? Click here for the answer.

What 'must' we believe about the Messiah !

Please turn in your Bble to the passage where we're asked to believe that the Messiah Yahoshua is the 'god/man'. 
 Can't  find it?  How about the passage that tells us that the Messiah is the 2nd person of the Triune godhead?  You say that's not there either?  How about the passage that calls Messiah "god the son". No, again that term is never found in the Bible. Surely the word "Trinity" is on every page of the Bible. What's that, the word "Trinity" is never mentioned in the Bible! How is that possible?  The fact is you're not going to find any of those phrases ever mentioned in the Bible and yet such terms are used by a majority of Christianity today.

If such terms as god/man, god the son. or the 2nd person of the Triune godhead or Trinity are never mentioned in the Bible then what exactly are we told to believe about the Messiah Yahoshua? In this article we'll be taking a look at everything the Bible tells us about the Messiah and what it is we MUST believe about Him in order to be saved.  To view the article "click here".  

 

Col 2:8-9 - In Him all the fullness of the Godhead dwelt

Colossians 2:8-9 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the traditions of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Messiah. For in him dwelt all the fullness of the Godhead bodily.

Did the ‘fullness’ of the Godhead dwell in Messiah because the Messiah, the one that was "sent by God" (John 17:3), the One who called His Father "His God" (John 20:17), was actually the Almighty Himself? No, but rather because it was the Father’s good pleasure to dwell in Him.


Col 1:19 (ASV)* For it was the good pleasure of the Father that in him should all the fullness dwell;

Col 1:19 (KJV)* For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;

The fact that God dwelt in the Messiah is not a mystery at all. It’s something that is talked about by all the writers of the 'New' Testament. Allow me to quote just a few examples.

2 Cor 5:18-19, “Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Messiah, and gave us the ministry of reconciliation namely, that 'God was in Messiah' reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed to us the word of reconciliation."

Notice what Paul does not say, he doesn’t say that Messiah was actually the Almighty Himself, but rather that “God was in the Messiah“.

Don't confuse what I'm about to say here, but the fact is that "God dwells in us" as well, that’s if we are following steps of His Son, Yahoshua (1 John 2:6). Of course God doesn’t dwell in us to the extent that He dwells in Messiah, but he does dwell in us also.

2 Cor 6:16; Or what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we 'are' the temple of the living God; just as God said' " I will dwell in them and walk among them; and I will be their God and they shall be my people."

The apostle Paul takes it even a little further in telling us, that the "followers of Messiah" should also be filled up to the "fullness of God."

Eph 3:19 "...and to know the love of the Messiah which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up “to all the fullness of God"

So we see that even though we are to be filled up to the 'fullness of God,' that does not make us equal with the Almighty, or part of a triune god anymore then it makes the Messiah, the Almighty or part of a triune god.

A couple other of other passages that may help in our understanding that God, the heavenly Father Yahuweh, was in Messiah, but that did not make Yahoshua the Almighty.

Listen to how Peter described the Savior to the 1,000’s of Jews on the Day of Pentecost. And keep in my Peter said this years “after” the death and resurrection, and Peter is still calling Yahoshua the man“, not the Almighty. .

Act 2:22  "Men of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man attested to you by God with miracles and wonders and signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves know--


And years later, Peter in witnessing to the first gentile converts tells them:

Act 10:38 "You know of Yahoshua of Nazareth, how God anointed Him'with the Holy Spirit and with power how He went about doing good, and healing all who were oppressed by the devil;for God was with Him"

You’ll notice again how Peter “did not” tell the Jews, the gentles, nor anyone else, that Yahoshua the Messiah was God Almighty, but rather the Almighty was in Messiah. 

In summery, not only is the "fullness of God" dwelling in the Messiah but it should be dwelling in us as well (Eph 3:10). The fact that it dwells in the Messiah does not make the Messiah, the Almighty nor part of a triune god, any more then it does us.

Please don't misunderstand me there isn't a Being in the entire Universe as powerful, or with more authority than Yahoshua the Messiah, but that power and authority was given to him by his Father, Yahuweh, who is the only true God (John 17:3).

Mat 28:18 And Yahoshua came and spoke unto them, saying, All power is given to me in heaven and in earth.

Joh 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know you Father: the only true God, and Yahoshua the Messiah, whom you have sent.

Joh 20:17 Yahoshua said unto her, do not touch me; for I have not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God.


As the Savior tells us, it is a matter of “Eternal Life” to know the Father as the only true God. To deny that is to deny the words of the Savior himself.

May Yahuweh bless the honest and good heart that is seeking him in spirit ad truth,

Shalom Reuven
