Yahshua The Messiah, Yahshua Messiah, Savior Yahshua

Who Is Yahshua The Messiah?

Who is Yahshua the Messiah? The name Yahshua sounds unfamiliar, right? Yet few will dispute that mankind have a Savior who lived 2,000 years ago and that He was a truly great Being who impacted the world from His time forward. During His time the religious authorities rejected Him as the Son of the Most High Yahweh in heaven. Who—and What—was Yahshua the Messiah? Have you even heard about His name? Why is there so much controversy over true Messiah and His real name? After all, He was the central figure in all of Bible, along with the Holy Father in heaven, Yahweh. His name was mentioned many times in Scripture. He regularly makes the cover and topic of weekly religious news and magazines. More books have been written and more scholarly work done about this Jewish teacher and carpenter from Galilee than any other man who ever lived! The Bible clearly tells us how this great Being came to be born and that he was no ordinary human being! Yet in spite all these facts many people still don’t know Him! Why? Today we are going to share with you Bible truths about the Savior of mankind Yahshua of Nazareth. As always, we hope you’ll have the eyes to see and ears to hear this true and faithful message about the risen Messiah.

Even with biblical record it takes great pains to explain to many religious people that Yahshua the Messiah have already existed in the beginning with the Almighty Father in heaven, and that He did not have a human father in Joseph, but that His Father was Yahweh Himself! Notice! “Now the birth of Yahshua Messiah was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit” (Matthew 1:18). Yahweh, whom Yahshua referred to as His Father, used His own power, referred to as the “Holy Spirit,” to sacredly beget Yahshua in the womb of Mary. But how could Mary be pregnant and conceive a son—she was a virgin! The angel Gabriel explained how this would happen. He said, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of Yahweh” (Luke 1:35). Therefore, Yahshua is the Son of Yahweh by birth. It’s indeed sad most people believe the Holy Spirit is the 3rd person in the erroneous “Trinity¬†” doctrine. But since the Holy Spirit engendered Yahshua in Mary’s womb, how could Elohim the Father be Yahshua’s Father? The answer is simply that the Holy Spirit is not a person, as is assumed in the popular Trinity teaching. Notice the Bible nowhere teaches that the Holy Spirit is a distinct person. It does, however, refer to the Holy Spirit as the power of Yahweh, as implied in this passage. When Yahshua was born, He was Elohim in the flesh. The prophecy of the virgin birth of “Immanuel,” which is translated, “Yahweh with us” come to pass. This was what the angel was saying and what Yahweh had foretold.

But who was Yahshua the Messiah before His human birth? The most definitive and clear statement about Yahshua before His human birth is recorded in Bible by the apostle John. Notice! In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim” (John 1:1). Who was this “Word”? “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). John goes on to explain that the Word who “became flesh and dwelt among us” was Yahshua of Nazareth. He also gives us explicit and definitive statements containing important details about Yahshua prior to His human birth. “The Word” is Yahshua and He was with Yahweh, and He was Elohim. This fact is unmistakable and can mean only one thing: There were two Beings—Yahweh and the Word. The Word “was in the beginning with Elohim” (John 1:2). John explicitly says that it was the Word—Yahshua the Messiah—through whom all things were created (John 1:3). The apostle Paul agrees completely with apostle John, adding that, “All things were created through Him and for Him” (Colossians 1: 16). This is why Yahshua is “firstborn” in the sense of being the unique (not created) Son of Yahweh. Yahshua is first over creation, not first in it! Yahshua Himself speaks of the relationship between Him and the Almighty Father Yahweh from “before the foundation of the world” (John 17:24). This means that Yahshua the Messiah existed before the beginning. He was not created. He already existed from eternity along with the Father!

Additionally, when Yahshua the Messiah became flesh He was still Elohim in terms of His identity. He was nevertheless a human being in every sense of the word. Yahshua had a physical body. The apostle John attests to this, saying, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life—the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness” (1 John 1:1). Because Yahshua has a body of a human being, He experienced hunger when He fasted (Matthew 4:2) and thirst (John 19:28). He experienced fatigue from a long walk (John 4:6). The Gospels clearly reveal that Yahshua had knowledge of the past, present and future in a way that was far beyond any ordinary man would have. We first see this when, at the age of 12, He showed understanding far beyond His age in His discussions with the religious teachers at the temple (Luke 2:46-47). Yahshua knew the thoughts of both His friends (Luke 9:47) and His enemies (Matthew 9:4). He knew the Samaritan woman had five husbands and at the time was living with a man to whom she was not married (John 4:18). He knew that Lazarus had died from his illness even though He and the disciples were miles away (John 11:1; 11-14). He knew which disciple would betray Him long before Judas had made the decision to turn Yahshua over to those who wanted to kill Him (John 6:70-71). Yahshua told the apostle Peter that he would deny Him three times on the night He was arrested and that a rooster would crow after the third denial (Luke 22:34). Sometimes He prayed for long periods (Luke 5:16; Mark 1:35). Also take full notice that Yahshua Messiah’s teachings was not about prestige, fame and wealth, but about repentance and the coming Kingdom of Yahweh!¬†Before choosing the 12 apostles He prayed all night (Luke 6:12-16). He performed supernatural miracles with the help of the Father. In the days of His flesh, Yahshua Messiah offered up prayers and supplications, with loud cries and tears (Hebrews 5:7). And on the night before His crucifixion, Yahshua Messiah prayed repeatedly to the Father in heaven Yahweh in the Garden of Gethsemane to strenghten Him during this terrible ordeal (Luke 22:41-44).

Furthermore, was it possible for Yahshua the Messiah to sin? The Bible is quite clear that Yahshua did not sin! The apostle Paul says that Yahshua “knew no sin” (2 Corinthians 5:21). The apostle John confirms that “in Him there is no sin” (1 John 3:5). None of His enemies could convict Him of sin (John 8:46). But could He have sinned? The Bible tells us that “we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weakness, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). Yes, Yahshua faced genuine struggles and temptations, but refused to give in to the temptation to sin. Such a time came when He prayed under such duress immediately before His arrest that, “being in agony, He prayed more earnestly. Then His sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground” (Luke 22:44). Yahshua then urged His disciples to “rise and pray, lest you enter into temptation” (Luke 22:46). Did Yahshua have long hair? Certainly not! We do know that He didn’t look like the common depictions of Him with long hair. After all, He inspired the apostle Paul to write: “Does not even nature itself teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a dishonor to him?” (1 Corinthians 11:14). Yes, the Savior of mankind Yahshua wasn’t the effeminate man as commonly portrayed in every painting, drawing or movie! Yahshua was a carpenter, a builder, a man who knew the construction trade. The Gospels make it clear that He spent a lot of time outdoors. He hung out with fishermen, the kind of characters who would never associate to a weakling. The 12 disciples who followed Yahshua knew Him as a real man! Was Yahshua the Messiah a real Elohim? The apostle Paul addresses this very question. Paul tells us what Yahshua left behind and what He took upon Himself. “He (Yahshua), who had always been Elohim by nature, did not cling to His privileges as Yahweh’s equal (Philippians 2). Instead He (Yahshua) “stripped Himself of every advantage by consenting to be a slave by nature and being born a man” (Philippians 2:6-7). Also He (Yahshua) “humbled Himself by living a life of utter obedience, to the point of death, and the death He died was the death of a common criminal” (Philippians 2:8). He sacrificed His life for all of us for a resurrection to be possible! Also, He became a sin to us in order to save us! And yes, the great Savior of mankind Yahshua was not born on December 25!

In closing, who is Yahshua the Messiah? Yahshua is the prophesied Savior of humanity! Yes, Yahshua as Elohim, could die. But only if He were to become a physical human being. This He did. He is risen and now sits at the right hand of the Almighty Father in heaven Yahweh! Yes, He experienced human emotion. Yes, He felt hunger and pain. Yes, He agonized at the prospect of death. Yahshua the Messiah was the same person He had always been, even having memories of His past eternity with the Father. Notice His prayer: “And now, Father, glorify Me in Your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began” (John 17:5). Here Yahshua speaks straightforwardly of His past experiences and memories with the Father, confirming everything the apostle John wrote in the first few verses of his Gospel. The apostle John also tells us that the Word (Yahshua the Messiah) is personally distinct from the Almighty Father Yahweh, though He is at the same time one with the Father. They are the same, eternal, and are of the same nature and essence. As Yahshua said, “I and My Father are one” (John 10:30). The oneness between the Father and the Word has to do with their complete harmony and agreement in working together—not that they constitute only one Being as the Trinitarian theory mistakenly teaches! Yahshua the Messiah’s sacrifice of Himself was one of virtually unimaginable proportions. And knowing who He was and what He willingly gave up to show His obedience to the Father and to show His love and the Father’s love for the humankind should make all the difference to you and us when coming to terms with the enormous magnitude of His sacrifice! Yes, Messiah Yahshua is coming back again to earth to establish Yahweh’s Kingdom. We hope that you’re enlightened and blessed by this true and faithful message. May Yahweh bless our worldwide readers, especially to our brethren of the same faith. All of these we humbly ask and pray in the name of our coming Savior and King Yahshua, Amen. Halleluyah, Shalom!
