Briefly discussing our divine Messiah….

Let’s briefly discuss YHWH's Divine Messiah who - while certainly a human who was born and died (something GOD Himself cannot do) - was also "divine" because he came straight from Abba Himself!

He was and is YHWH's Word (John 1:1, 14) who spoke everything into being .. an indelible part of ELOHIM. He was also called YHWH's "Arm" (Isaiah 53:1), doing NOT his own will, but YHWH's when he was sent to earth to become our Messiah, teacher and REDEEMER - the Messiah who was to do everything he was commanded to do and say. (Deuteronomy 18:15-18; Luke 4:43 and 8:1; John 6: 35-40; Acts 28: 23)

Why is Yeshua so important to us? Because, without his divine blood shed to remove our past sins and allow us to repent and turn toward YHWH, believers would still be forced to kill innocent animals to atone for their sins. Yeshua's blood reconciles the "lost" with YHWH!

Even satan and his demons knew who Yeshua was!

Mark 1: 23. And there was a man in their assembly in whom was an unclean spirit, and he cried out, 24. And said, What have we to do with you Y'shua the Nasraya? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you are, you are the Set Apart One of Elohim. 25. And Y'shua rebuked him and said, Shut your mouth and come out from him! 26. And the unclean spirit threw him down and cried out in a loud voice and came out of him. (AENT)

Amyway, let's allow John 1:1-5 to explain more.

John 1:1 In the beginning[1] was the Miltha.[2] And that Miltha was with Elohim. And Elohim was that Miltha. 2. This was with Elohim in the beginning.[3] 3. Everything existed through his hands,[4] and without him, not even one thing existed of the things which have existed. 4. In him was life, and the life was the light of men.[5] 5. And that light shines in the darkness,[5] and the darkness did not overtake it.[6] (AENT)


[1] The phrase B’resheet aytohi hwa miltha breaks a most basic rule of Aramaic grammar by combining a feminine noun (miltha) with two masculine verbs for “to be” (aytohi, hwa). This is unheard of in Aramaic literature other than right here in this passage and in 1 John.

This shows YHWH has male and female “images/spirits” even though YHWH remains a He. It may also be a midrash on Isaiah 11:1-2, which describes the Spirit of YHWH descending on Mashiyach using both masculine and feminine suffixes. This is not something easily translated, let alone when it occurs within the first four words.

[2] Miltha has no direct English equivalent. It can mean ‘Word’, ‘Manifestation’, ‘Instance’ or ‘Substance’ among other things. In this context, it may best be left untranslated.

[3] Fulfilling Messianic prophecy: Mashiyach (ruler of Israel) to have origins of the ancient past Micah 5:2; Isaiah 48:16. Bear in mind that Micah is referring to the spiritual “Israel of Elohim,” those of the Kingdom of Heaven according to the circumcision of heart.

[4] Literal Aramaic reading; “through his hands” indicates the Word as a creative force, like a sculptor working under the orders of a king. See Psalm 33:6; Isaiah 44:24; 66:1, 2.

[5] While Abba YHWH is in sole command of the creation process, the “his hands” refers to the Word from His mouth and that Word will become flesh as His Son. Since this is a form of Y’shua the “him” is in small letters. The same is done for Yochanan 1:10-12. Although in another sense it is also accurate to say that Y’shua is YHWH. See Luke 2:11 and 1 Corinthians 12:3.

[6] Aramaic wordplay. Nohra b’nshokha menhar (light in the darkness that shines) is a deliberate mirror-reversal of menhar-nohra (menorah), which marks the conception of the light of the world at Hanukkah. This puts the birth of Mashiyach nine months from Hanukkah, during the fall feasts; many point to the first day of Feast of Tabernacles for the date of Y’shua’s birth.

Folks, one important thing to remember is that, while Yeshua was (and still is!) the most important human in history during the short time on earth as Messiah, it's NOT " just all about him" as Christianity teaches It's all about YHWH who sent Yeshua to earth to redeem lost people; and to personally show them how to live holy/set apart lives, in order to prepare them for the Kingdom....

Yeshua didn't come to bring any new religion or to "become God on earth." (If you'll remember, he constantly deferred to the Father and prayed to Him.) He was The Word who had been sent on a very important and painful mission ... who then returned to YHWH as The Word ... but is destined to return to earth as the Lion of Judah who will rule with an iron fist, causing everyone to live according to TORAH, until Judgment Day arrives...

Halleluyah! May he return soon!.
