Who is THAT?

Yeshua.
He is my Salvation.
He has perfected me in the inner man, the ‘new being’, and before the court of Heaven, and given me access to the very throne of the Creator, to the heart of the Creator, His Father, with whom He is unified, because He originated from Him, and existed with Him before the foundation of the world.
He is Jewish. Not was. Is. He is the King of the Jews.  He is the offspring of Melekh David, and at the same time the progeny of G-d His Father. He is where humanity and divine become one. He is my living connection to the creator.
He came here, leaving behind the glory of Elohim, abandoning who He was before the creation, and becoming a tiny baby, growing into a man, and going through all the hardships of being a human, all the difficulties and trials. Yet He never erred, not against G-d, and not against mankind.
Yet the majority of our Jewish people hated Him, rejected Him, and then killed Him, hanging Him on a tree.
But, they had no power over Him, without His first consenting with His Father, and giving in to them at His command, because it was necessary, for me.
I was born into this world in imperfection, in rebellion against The Word of Elohim. He died so that I could then be born into His Kingdom of LIFE. He died for ME, before I was ever born, knowing ahead of time that I would go against Him, at times, even AFTER I learned that He died for me! He died for me knowing I would never be perfect, even AFTER He gave me His perfection, so that I could be clean before the Creator. He died for me knowing that I would wrong Him at times, after having experienced the power of His Ru’akh [Breath/Life/Spirit].
Here is a man who never did any wrong, who gave the power of the Creator to the lowest of the Jews, the discarded, the disobedient, the rejected, and then surrendered Himself to the religious leaders of Israel, who made religion into politics, and also to the political leaders of Rome.
They falsely accused Him.
They mocked Him.
They spit in His face.
They struck Him.
They did all of this in the dark of night, under the shroud of darkness, in violation of the very law they said HE was breaking.  Any generation, and any people, would have done the very same thing.
They stripped Him down to the shame of nakedness. They wove a degrading, mocking crown made of huge thorns, put it on His head, tearing his scalp and hair out, pushing it down on Him in utter hatred. And they beat His back with a whip; a whip that was filled with the manmade teeth of metal and bone, tearing Him open, causing Him to bleed, and exposing some of His organs. They devoured His life. All while accusing Him of what He did not do. Of their own sin. Of our sin. Yet He asked His Father to forgive them.
They did it on behalf of the Enemy of God, yet saying and thinking they did it for God. They thought they loved God, but they loved themselves, and their own way.
And He endured it, for me. And for whoever is reading this.
And He rose from the dead, after suffering horrendous pain, having been nearly shredded, bleeding and suffocating to death on a tree. His dead body, long dead, for three full days and nights, came out of the stench and darkness of death, to be resurrected in ETERNAL LIFE, His human frame now clothed in immortality. And now He stands at the right hand of the Creator, His Father, who has given HIM His Ru’akh, to give power of life eternal, power over sin itself, to those who love and trust in this story, this, ‘good news.’
His blood was pure. His Father was God Himself. His blood did not have the stain of Adam’s sin and rebellion in it, like the rest of us.
ONLY HIS BLOOD could cleanse sinful man. Only His body could suffer in man’s place, the punishment that each human deserves. Only HE, the SON of God, could bear the punishment we ALL deserve.
Yet His Jewish people, for the most part, will not be honest with themselves, and admit that they break His laws, and that they have no means to remit their own sins. As stubborn as He was in dying for them, they are stubborn in rejecting Him. And they are not alone. Most of the world has heard His story, that Messiah came to die for those who sin. Yet they persist, some insisting there is no such thing as sin. Some insisting blood is not necessary to obtain forgiveness.  Some insisting they do not care. Some saying in their foolishness that there is no God, and we created ourselves, ‘evolving’ out of nothing. They are fools.
And some know His story. And they love Him. And they want to obey Him. But they do not read His Word for what it is: A SINGLE expression of the heart of the Creator and His Son, the unified God. That is the fault of the religion of men. They do not realize that His Voice is His Torah, and the books that come out of it, the rest of the Bible. They listen to man.
I do His Word. I am not perfect in this life, but I am perfect before Him, because of that PERFECTLY PURE BLOOD that He shed, and offered before His Father in the Temple of Heaven, for me.  For you.  And I have no need to do anything more to gain His favor. I cannot be made any more righteous before Him by ANYTHING I do on this earth, whether religious or otherwise. It is my trust in HIS BLOOD and His DEATH for my sake that makes me perfect, such that I can pray and benefit from the compassion of His mercy, and serve Him in truth. I ‘do’ for Him, because He did for me, before I existed. Yet, He has tasked me to obey HIM. So that others can ‘see’ the ‘order’ of HIS Kingdom. The RIGHT way. I cannot enhance my righteousness, which I have received from Him in the first place.
All His children have erred. But I will not let that stop me from pursuing HIS TRUTH, and DOING what HE SAID. And ONLY what HE said. And His Ru’akh, [Breath/Life] guides me in fellowship with HIS servants who do the same. He has made those who trust in Him, The King of Israel, to be the true Jews, no matter what DNA they carry, they are the true tribe of Praise.  May we ALL LEARN to focus on HIM, and learn TOGETHER what His WORD says to do, ONLY for the sake of unifying, in order to GLORIFY GOD and HIS SON, whose love has been LAVISHED on an ungrateful, perverse, and stubborn people: MANKIND.  HE IS:  יהוה Yeshua HaMashiakh.

  1. Daniel,

    Beautifully written.

    A powerful review and reminder of Who our Savoir Is, Who and Where He comes from, and what He did for us.

    Thank you Daniel for encouraging us to wholeheartedly seek Yeshua – The Living Torah and our Salvation.

    I pray that we become even more unified as we move forward as a congregation.

    YAH Bless you.
