Everlasting Kingdom: Unraveling the Bible’s Secrets

Becoming Literal Sons of Elohim (God)

Eye of God

Back Next Chapter 29, Part 1 Preview: (A Sequel to: The Origin of Heresy) A controversy has raged for nearly two thousand years: “How can Yeshua (Jesus) be God?” Many heretical theories have been proposed over the centuries concerning the “nature” of Yeshua. These ideas are at extreme variance with the Bible concerning His identity and they are quite dangerous. Bible prophecy says that heresy (literally: sectarianism) would be an unbridled problem. It is not just the cults that are a problem tho they do provide very convenient “whipping boys” for more traditional deceivers. This four part sequel to The Origin of Heresy explains the “Nature of God” directly from the Bible in a way that harmonizes passages that have baffled heretics for nearly two millennia.

Mysteries of the Everlasting Kingdom

Yeshua is Yehovah—Begin With Proof!

Yeshua is the Sovereign YEHOVAH! Your Bible most likely says “Lord GOD” in verse 8 below, but in truth it is “Adonai (the Sovereign) Yehovah”—Ignore the “GOD” in all caps here, and check the Hebrew: 3069 [e], a slight variant of the name YHVH. He, the Messenger of Yehovah, the Alpha and the Omega (Yeshua) is the One who will wipe away the tears! The Hebrew Adonai, the Latin Deus (Zeus), the Greek Kurios (Sovereign), the Aramaic MayYa (Sovereign {Lord} Yehovah) are all references to Yeshua, tho Yehovah without distinctive qualifiers is used thousands of times more often.

Isaiah 25:6-9 Commander Yehovah will prepare a 'lavish' banquet on this mountain using the 'best foods' for every nation, a banquet with well aged wines, of 'choice' cuts full of marrow and refined wines. 7 On this mountain He (Commander Yehovah) will remove the shroud that looms over all people, the veil that 'overshadows' every nation. 8 He (Commander Yehovah)) will devour death forever! The Sovereign Yehovah [2] [“Yeshua”] will wipe away the tears from every face. He’ll eliminate the scorn of His people from the entire earth. Yehovah has spoken! 9 When That Day Comes* Israel will be saying, “This is our Elohim! We have been waiting for Him to save us! This is Yehovah! We’ve been waiting for Him. Let’s rejoice and celebrate His salvation!”—The Gabriel Bible

[2] Note the context of the next verse—death ceasing (for the righteous) when Messiah returns. Your Bible most likely says “Lord GOD” in verse 8, but in truth it is “adonai (Sovereign) YHVH”! He, the Alpha and the Omega (Yeshua), is the One who will wipe away the tears! Revelation 21:4-6. Ignore the “GOD”, check the Hebrew: 3069 [e], a slight variant of the name YHVH. See Adonai (Adonai)

Of course most the Jews will be shocked to see who this Sovereign Yehovah (Messiah) they have been waiting for turns out to be!

Both Isaiah and John refer to the One who will:

1: Wipe away every tear
2: Eliminate death and crying forever
3: Be their Elohim (Hebrew), Aloha (Aramaic), their Alpha and the Omega AND their Commander Yehovah

Revelation 21:4-7 Every tear will be wiped from their eyes, AND there will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, nor will the previous painful state exist anymore, because the previous evil things have gone away. 5 The One who was seated on the throne said, ‘Look, I am making everything new‘. And He said, ‘Write this down, because these are the faithful and true words of Yehovah.’ 6 Then He said to me, “I am the Aleph and the Tau [Greek: Alpha & Omega], the Beginning and the End. I will allow anyone who is thirsty to drink freely from the spring of living water. 7 Anyone who is victorious will inherit these things. I will be their Aloha and they will be My sons

Whenever you see GOD in all caps, check the Hebrew and see that it is really Yehovah (LORD).

The Septuagint translators, first century Christian Bible translators and the eleventh century Jewish scribes who produced the oldest known and most prestigious Hebrew Bible, (the one virtually every Bible is based on including the Gabriel Bible) have distorted the distinction between Adonay and Yehovah by switching or deleting the title/name. No wonder people get confused.

The Latin Septuagint, the Greek “New Testament” and the Aramaic “New Testament” all differ from the Hebrew they should be in agreement with in regard to Adonai.

The current Septuagint is missing all references to Yehovah.

The early copies of the Testimony of Yeshua in both Aramaic and Greek, the so-called “New Testament” has replaced every references to Yehovah.

For example the Hebrew actually NAMES Yehovah in the burning bush account:

Genesis 15:5-6 Then Yehovah took him outside and said, “Look up into the sky and count the stars, if you’re able to count them.” Then He told him, “That’s the number of your descendants.” 6 'Abraham' believed in Yehovah, and He credited it to him as righteousness.

While in both the existing second century Greek and Aramaic quotations Theos (Greek) and Aloha (Aramaic) are substituted, for example:

Greek Romans 4:3 What do the Scriptures say? That “Abraham believed God (Theos), and it was credited to him as righteousness.”

Aramaic Romans 4:3 For what saith the scripture? That Abraham believed Aloha (God), and he reckoned it to him for righteousness.

In every instance, His name is substituted with a title.

The sopherim (scribes) deleted His name, Yehovah, 314 times as compared with the older but no longer entirely intact predecessors in order to break the Yeshua/Yehova connection! Yehovah is the family name of Father and Son.

Proverbs 30:4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down? [John 3:13] Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has gathered water in His clothing? Who has established all the boundaries of the earth? WHAT IS HIS NAME AND WHAT IS HIS SON’S NAME? Surely you must know!

Here is an intriguing conversation between Gideon and what is usually translated as “the angel of the LORD”. But these verses definitively show that this is the Messenger of Yehovah, and the message is of such importance that the sopherim (scribes) tried to hide this truth (v.15 link) by deleting His name! The Messenger (Son) of Yehovah in verses 11 & 12 interchangably shares the same family name as His Father in verses 15 & 16—Yehovah! Yeshua, the Messenger is also Yehovah the Son! Read the account carefully. Without missing a beat in the context, supposedly just a messenger (angel)—“Yehovah replied, ‘I will certainly be with you...”

Judges 6:11-27 Then the Messenger of Yehovah came down and sat under the oak that was in Ophrah that belonged to Yehoash the Abiezrite [Yehovah-fired: is strong}, where his son Gideon was threshing wheat in a winepress to hide the grain from the Midianites. 12 The Messenger of Yehovah appeared to him and told him, “Yehovah is with you, courageous man of valor!” 13 Gideon asked Him, “My master, if Yehovah is with us, then why has all of this happened to us? Where are all His miracles that our ancestors told us about when they asked, “Didn’t Yehovah bring us up from Egypt?” But now Yehovah has abandoned us and handed us over to the Midianites.

14 Yehovah [1] [U] turned to him and said, “You have the strength, go rescue Israel from the grasp of the Midianites. I am sending you!” 15 “But Yehovah, how can I rescue Israel? My clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I’m the youngest in my family! 16 Yehovah replied, “I will certainly be with you, and you’ll defeat the Midianites as if you were fighting one man. 17 He told Him, “ Now if I’ve found favor in Your sight, then show me a sign that it’s really You speaking with me. 18 Please don’t go away until I come back to you, and bring out my offering, and set it in front of You.

He answered, “I will stay here until you return.” 19 Gideon went inside and 'cooked' a young goat, and unleavened bread 'from' an ephah of flour. He put the meat in a basket and he put the broth in a pot, and brought them out to Him under the oak, and offered them. [No “angel” would accept an offering meant for Yehovah!] 20 The Messenger of Elohim told him, “Take the meat and the unleavened bread, and lay them on this rock, and pour the broth on them. And so he did. 21 Then the Messenger of Yehovah touched the meat and unleavened bread with the tip of the staff in His hand, and fire sprang up from the rock and consumed the meat and the unleavened bread. Then the Messenger of Yehovah vanished from his sight. 22 That’s when Gideon realized that he had seen the Messenger [Word/Son] of Yehovah, and Gideon said, “Sovereign Yehovah [“Yeshua”], I’m doomed! I’ve seen the Messenger of Yehovah face to face!” 23 But Yehovah reassured him, “Shalom friend! Don’t be afraid. You aren’t going to die!” 24 Then Gideon built an altar there to Yehovah, and called it “Yehovah is Peace.” To this day it still stands in Ophrah of the Abiezrites.

25 Then the same night Yehovah told him, “Take your father’s bull, the second bull seven years old, and tear down your father’s altar to Baal, and cut down the Asherah pole that’s by it. 26 Then build an altar to Yehovah your Elohim on top of this high ground the right way, and take the second bull, and offer a burnt zebak [sacrifice] with the wood of the Asherah pole that you’ll cut down. 27 So Gideon took ten of his servants and did as Yehovah had told him. But he did it at night because he was afraid of his family and the men of the city.

[1] Here is an intriguing conversation between Gideon and what is usually phrased “the angel of the LORD”. But these verses definitively show that this is the Messenger of Yehovah, and the message is of such importance that the sopherim (scribes) tried to hide this truth (the v.15 link) by deleting His name! (Older but incomplete Hebrew Bibles predate the alteration of Yehovah to Adonai in verse 15 and 333 other locations!) The Messenger (Son) of Yehovah in verses 11 & 12 interchangably shares the same family name as His Father in verses 15 & 16—Yehovah! Yeshua, the Messenger is also Yehovah the Son! Read the account carefully. Without missing a beat in the context, the supposed ‘angel’—“Yehovah replied, ‘I will certainly be with you...”

Back a few pages this same “angel” claimed to have been the One who brought Israel out of Egypt! The audicity of that “angel”!

Judges 2:1 The Messenger of Yehovah [1] went up from Gilgal to Bochim and said, “I brought you out of Egypt into the land that I swore to give to your ancestors, and I said, ‘I’ll never break My covenant with you.

So the legitimate question is:

Proverbs 30:4 Who has ascended to heaven and come down? [John 3:13] Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has gathered water in His clothing? Who has established all the boundaries of the earth? WHAT IS HIS NAME AND WHAT IS HIS SON’S NAME? Surely you must know!

The question does not seem to imply that their names should remain a secret, be avoided, switched to euphemismistic titles or spelled with vowels missing. In fact when the time is right we should even swear by His name! (Deuteronomy 6:13)

The universe is filled with many stars, sort of an immense cosmological “family”, but it is still ONE universe. The very nature of Elohim is actually “revealed from heaven”, He is “clearly seen”. He is actually “perceived through the things that are made”.

Romans 1:18-20 Yehovah’s anger is revealed from Heaven against all the unrighteousness and depravity of people who censor and vilify the truth. 19 An awareness of Yehovah has been revealed to them, because Yehovah has revealed it to them. 20 The invisible attributes of Aloha [God] have been visible to the intellect since the creation of the cosmos [Gr. kosmos], because the physical creation reveals His eternal power as the Supreme Being, leaving them no excuse.

In time we mortals—those of us who overcome sin, will literally be made a part of that celestial Family and “will shine... like the stars forever and ever”.

Daniel 12:3 Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.

We are told straight out concerning “Your heavens, the work of Your fingers” that “You make him ruler over the works of Your hands”.

Psalm 8:3-6 When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars that You set in place— 4 what is the 'human race' that you should notice us, 'human beings' [Lit: the son of man] that you should care for them? 5 You’ve made us slightly lower than Elohim, and crowned us with splendor and honor. 6 You’ve given us control of Your handiwork by putting everything [on earth] under 'our control':

One of Yehovah’s many mysteries is that the life and teachings of Yeshua the Messiah (Messiah is not His last name) include the central truths that will enable the called out people (saints) to become literal sons of Yehovah is that they were made to “rule” the universe! We can literally become resurrected members of Yehovah’s own family, a family that has always been to this point only made up of two members.

Ruth knew that ‘God’ was more than one ‘Person’:

Ruth 1:21 I left here full, but Yehovah has brought me back empty. Why do you call me Naomi, since Yehovah has witnessed against me and the Conqueror has afflicted me?” 22 So Naomi returned with Ruth the Moabitess, her daughter-in-law, who returned from the territory of Moab. They came to Bethlehem at the beginning of barley harvest.

Messiah means “Anointed”, with the understanding that He was anointed to the office of the Messiah. The true 'special ones' understand that the Messiah (Yeshua) was a man but that He was also the Son of Yehovah. Questions should come to mind, such as why would Yehovah have a Son? When did that relationship begin? And if Yehovah had a Son, wouldn’t there be two Yehovahs?

Our knowledge of Yehovah is almost entirely dependent upon revelation. We can acknowledge a Creator by seeing His creation, but knowledge of His identity is only discerned by His written word. We need to know not only that there is an Elohim but who He is and what He has in mind for us!

Men have been devising scenarios to separate Messiah from the Father for nearly two millennia. From the early chapters of Genesis it is clear that Yehovah made us in the very form that He Himself had. Later we see Yehovah walking with Adam and Eve in the Garden. There are several places in the Bible where Yehovah is even thought to be a Man by those present.

“Supernatural” evidence proves that the Bible is Yehovah’s word. Fulfilled prophecies are a primary proof of Yehovah’s identity. The prophets of ancient Israel received very specific inspiration and recorded the written word in the Bible. They essentially took dictation. The things that these men witnessed inspired most of them to die for the messages that they announced to the public.

Prophets such as the Envoy (Apostle) John and the Messiah Himself recorded considerable information that will ultimately change the course of history as people begin to respond to those prophecies—when they begin to unfold. Ultimately, the people who really come to know Yehovah are the people “who hunger and thirst for righteousness, because they will be filled.”

Yehovah responds to sincere peoples’ desire for eternal knowledge by “calling” those individuals. That simply means that He tweaks their minds with a far keener awareness of spiritually discerned things, allowing them to learn about Him. They to varying degrees become, as a famous man calls it, a “truth detector”. Such people crave to study Yehovah’s word. With persistence, these individuals slowly begin to get a clearer picture of Yehovah and His reason for creating us as the years pass by. Unfortunately, careless assumptions about Yehovah passed on by others often greatly slows our learning. If you can learn to never assume anything, by questioning everything, you will advance spiritually much more effectively.

Most of the Bible is about the people of Israel—past, present and future, but this chapter focuses on what Yehovah says about Himself. So lets jump in and look at the verses that explain who Yehovah is. Typically, people read right over the statements that Messiah said about Himself, shrug their shoulders and then ask a familiar “professional” what they should believe. The actual Bible verses may seem so strange to us that we unconsciously reject them without even realizing what we are doing. The real solution tho is to believe those things that the Father and the Son actually say about themselves. Anything else is creating a false Elohim in our own imagination.

An Elementary Explanation of the Nature of Yeshua

What if Yeshua was serious! Can we simply believe Yeshua’s own explanation?

John 14:9-11 Yeshua replied, “Philip, have I been with you all this time, and you still don’t know Me? Whoever has seen Me has seen the Father, so why would you say, ‘Show us the Father’? 10 Don’t you believe that I am in My Father, and that My Father is in Me? The words that I’m telling you aren’t of My own initiative. My Father who lives in Me is doing the work! 11 Believe Me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me. But if not, at least believe because of the works themselves.

What are the ramifications of believing that to see Yeshua is to see the Father? And what exactly did Yeshua mean when He said that He was “in the Father”?

What did He mean by, ”?

Truly there is but one Elohim, as the “One Godders” who deny Yeshua’s role insist, but the one Elohim consists of two “persons”! (There are good articles on the web that thoroly discredit the Trinity, I would recommend checking it out if you have never looked into it, however they often come with baggage).

People who believe in the Biblical Satan have no trouble believing that his evil spirit permeates and influences billions of human “bodies” [especially post c0v1d]. However, some of those same people have trouble believing that Yehovah can “operate” from two bodies. That is the reason why the literal statement has been rejected almost from the moment that the words left His mouth. So is there a simple way to make this concept understandable? Absolutely! There is a physical counterpart to two being one. The principle was stated in the Garden of Eden:

Genesis 2:24 This is why a man leaves his father and mother, and unites with his wife and they will become one flesh.

Yeshua restated the thought:

Matthew 19:4-6 But Yeshua, knowing what they were thinking, asked them, “Why are you entertaining evil thoughts in your minds?” 5 Which is the easier to say, “Your sins have departed” or to say, “Get up and walk?” 6 But so that you’ll know that the Human Son has authority on earth to send away sins, He said to the paralytic, “Get up, pick up your cot and go home.”

We have now seen two of several examples of where two are one, in the favorable context of a marriage. Marriage is, or at least can be, a foretaste of a Heavenly condition! It is very analogous to the family relationship between the Father and the Son. There could be no better way to explain the “nature of Messiah”!

The Oneness of Yehovah refers to the One mind of Yehovah; it’s not a “body count”!

With a little bit of thought and meditation on these passages we can even envision that the Messiah and the Father want to have a family! Why wouldn’t the Father and the Son want to share the wonders of eternity with more of their own Kind? You can be a part of it!

Matthew 5:9 Those who work for peace are blessed [1] because they’ll be called the Sons of Aloha!

[1] So should we be pacifists?

Romans 8:14 Those who are led by Yehovah’s spirit are Yehovah’s children.

Romans 8:19 The entire creation is hoping and waiting for the appearance of Yehovah’s children.

Galatians 3:26 You are all the children of Yehovah by faith in Yeshua Messiah.

Luke 20:34-36 Yeshua responded, “The 'people' of this age marry, and the women are given in marriage. 35 But those who are worthy of that age and the resurrection from the dead will never marry or be given in marriage. 36 They can no longer die because they are like spirit messengers, and are Yehovah’s children, because they are children of the resurrection.

Why are there no daughters of Yehovah mentioned? Some translations use “children of Elohim” instead of “sons of Elohim”, which is right in principle but wrong technically. Those who are accounted worthy to be in Yehovah’s family will apparently not be sexual beings; but rather similar to the angels. Gender terms are merely a convenience. Being compared to angels is somewhat of a loose comparison because even the Angels are not necessarily immortal. They could conceivably suffer destruction as the demons will ultimately suffer, if they choose to become evil:

Luke 4:33-34 In a synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out loudly, 34 “Let us alone. What do You want with us, Yeshua the Nazarene? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the 'Cherished' One of Yehovah.”

However, we can attain immortality, as our Father has, and actually become one with Him:

1 Timothy 6:12-16 Fight in the good battle for your faith and take hold of eternal life. This is why you were called, and have declared your honorable testimony before many witnesses. 13 In the presence of Yehovah, who gives life to all, and before Yeshua Messiah who declared His honorable testimony before Pontius Pilate, I insist that 14 you obey this command spotlessly and blamelessly until the appearance of our Sovereign Yeshua Messiah. 15 At the right time, 'Yeshua' will reveal who the blessed and only Sovereign is, the King of kings and Master of masters 16 who alone has 'immortality', living in unapproachable light, who no one has ever seen or even can see. To Him be honor and dominion forever and ever. Aw-main'.

Notice, hidden within the following dreadful but related analogy, that our destiny as 'chosen ones' is to also be joined to the One Spirit:

1 Corinthians 6:15-17 Don’t you know that your bodies are members [parts] of the Messiah? Will someone take away a member of the Messiah and then make it a member of a prostitute’s body? Absolutely not! 16 Don’t you know that whoever unites with a prostitute is one body with her? As it is said, “The two will be one body.” 17 Anyone who unites themself with Yehovah is one spirit!

True, a sexual relationship forms something akin to a marriage in Yehovah’s eyes, and there are consequences. But 'cherished ones' can literally become “one spirit” within the family of Yehovah, once in the spirit realm, and have an existence on par with Yehovah! Just as when the Messiah said: in like manner we can be a part of this same eternal family.

The following words, among Yeshua’s very last words, are some of the most profound words ever to be spoken! We can share the same destiny as Yeshua and the Father. We can also be a part of the same “One”.

John 17:20-24 I’m not asking just for them, but also for those who will believe in Me thru their teaching, 21 so that they can all be one just as You Father, are in Me, and I in You. And may they be one with Us, so that the world will believe that You sent Me. 22 The magnificence that You gave Me, I have given to them, so that they can be one, just as We are One. 23 I am in them and You are in Me. May they be perfected into one so that the world will know that You sent Me and that You loved them just as You loved Me. 24 “Father, I want those You’ve given Me to be with Me where I am, so that they can see the splendor that You’ve given Me, because You loved Me before the foundation of the world.

Did Yeshua really expect that “they may be one in Us”? Was He rambling under the pressure of impending death, or was He more focused than He had ever been? If Yeshua was merely hoping for unity among His physical followers, then His dying wish never even came close to being reality.

Did Yeshua really mean, “He who has seen Me has seen the Father”? The Two of Them may be entirely identical. Perhaps They planned it that way. I can relate to that. I have even daydreamed about how nice it would be to have a “clone” to help me with my work. Also notice in passing that the Father is “invisible”, while of course the One who spoke to the Patriarchs often spoke to them “face to face”!

Colossians 1:12-14 joyfully thanking the Father who has qualified you to share in the 'chosen ones’s' inheritance in Light. 13 Yehovah has rescued us from the dominion of darkness, and brought us into the Kingdom of His dear Son. 14 He has paid our ransom and released us from the bondage of sin [1].

[1] Some versions add: “thru His blood”, based on a few relatively late Greek manuscripts.

While the frequently used term translated as “image” does not necessarily mean an exact duplicate; there is a Greek word, unique to Hebrews 1:3—“Charakter”—that is defined as “the exact expression (the image) of any person or thing, marked likeness, precise reproduction in every respect, i.e. facsimile”.

Hebrews 1:3 He brightly reflects His Fathers’ splendor and is essentially identical in His Being. He sustains the universe by the power of His Word. And He personally provided the purification to cover our sins, and sat down at the right hand side of His Majesty in the high places.

Here is another reference to the destiny of the 'special one':

2 Corinthians 3:18 All of us with unveiled faces, reflecting like mirrors the brightness of the Sovereign, are undergoing a metamorphosis [Gr. metamorphoo] [4] into His likeness, from our brightness to His brightness, just like the Sovereign’s spirit.

[4] This is like a worm being changed into a butterfly. When the process is finished we will literally be born again!

Who is Our Father?

The Father and the Son even share the same names!

Yeshua is an “Everlasting Father”, yet He spoke of “His Father”:

Isaiah 9:6 A Child will be born for us, a Son is given to us. The government will rest on His shoulders. He’ll be named Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty Elohim, Everlasting Father, Peaceful Leader.

Matthew 16:27 The Human Son will return in the splendor of His Father with all His 'cherished Messengers', and then He’ll COMPENSATE EVERYONE BASED ON WHAT THEY HAVE DONE.

Who is Our Master (Lord)?

Who is “the Master”; the Father or the Son? The quotation about Yeshua being David’s Master is mentioned four times by Yeshua and the Apostles! Perhaps we were meant to notice it. The point is that they are both Master!

Matthew 22:41-46 While the Pharisees were gathered around, Yeshua asked them a question: 42 “What do you have to say about the Messiah? Whose Son is He? They replied, “The Son of David.” 43 He replied, “So then why does David, inspired by the spirit, call Him Yehovah? Because he said, 44 “Yehovah said to His Word [Targum of Jonathan (Aramaic) Psalm 110:1—Gill’s Commentary], ‘Sit at at My right hand side until I put Your enemies under Your feet.’” 45 So if David calls Him Sovereign, how could he be His son? 46 No one was able to answer Him. And from that day on no one even dared to question Him.

The following passage positively identifies Yeshua as being the “other Lord” that David spoke of!

Acts 2:29-35 Men and friends, allow me to speak freely to you about the patriarch David. He died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this very day. 30 He was a prophet, and he knew that Yehovah had solemnly sworn to him, “Of the fruit of your body, I’ll seat a descendant on your throne.” 31 He foresaw, and spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that He wasn’t to be left in the grave, nor would His body undergo decay. 32 This Yeshua, Yehovah raised from the dead, and we’re all His witnesses. 33 He’s the One who was elevated to the right hand of Yehovah, and has received from the Father the 'special' spirit as promised, and has poured out what you’re seeing and hearing. 34 David didn’t ascend into the heavens, because he said himself, “Yehovah said to His Word [Targum of Jonathan (Aramaic) Psalm 110:1]Gill’s Commentary], ‘Seat Yourself on My right hand side 35 until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.’”

Who is Our Savior?

Here is an example of many ways to demonstrate that sometimes Elohim the Father is our Savior, while at other times Yeshua is referred to as our Savior, and Titus said that they both are:

1 Timothy 1:1 From Paul, an envoy of Yeshua (Jesus) Messiah, by the command of Yehovah our Life Giver and of the Messiah, Yeshua our hope,

Titus 1:3-4 At the right time, He revealed His message by the announcement of heralds, the mandate that I was entrusted with from Yehovah our Life Giver, 4 To Titus, a true son in our common faith. May good will and peace be yours from Yehovah our Father, and from our Sovereign Yeshua Messiah our Life Giver.

Perhaps Obadiah intended to clue us in on the fact that there are two Saviors!

Obadiah 1:21 Saviors [rescuers] will ascend Mount Zion to rule over Esau’s mountains. And Yehovah Himself will be King!

Hebrew has no capitol letters. Translators determine when to use capitol letters by the context; so don’t let the lack of a capital “S”, in some versions, throw you off. My question is: which Saviors could come to Mount Zion—Yehovah’s own special place? How about two of Them!

Who is our Redeemer?

Who is our Redeemer? Isaiah said that “our Father” is our Redeemer; He also said that the “First” and the “Last”—the Messiah, is our Redeemer!

Isaiah 63:16 You are our Father, even tho Abraham doesn’t know us, and Israel doesn’t recognize us. You, Yehovah, have been called our Father and our Redeemer from ancient times.

Isaiah 44:6 This is what Yehovah, the King of Israel [the Father] AND His Redeemer [the Son], Commander Yehovah, says: “I am the first and I am the last, and there is no Elohim besides Me.

Who is “My Master and my Elohim”?

Eventually, even “doubting” Thomas figured out who his Elohim was!

John 20:26-28 After eight days [2] the disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Yeshua came in, even tho the doors were locked, and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27 Then He told Thomas, “Put your finger here and look at My hands, and reach out your hand put it into My side, don’t be an unbeliever, be a believer!” 28 Thomas replied, “My Sovereign and my Aloha!

[2] This gathering, counting eight days inclusively from Yeshua’s Supper on Preparation Day (Luke 22:12-13) would have been for the celebration of the Last Day of Unleavened Bread!

Who is “the Rock”?

1 Corinthians 10:1-4 Friends, I want you to know that all of our ancestors were under the cloud and they all passed thru the sea, 2 and they were all immersed by Moses in the cloud and in the sea, 3 and they all ate the same spiritual food, 4 and they all drank the same spiritual drink because they drank from the spiritual Rock that attended them, and that Rock was the Messiah.

Deuteronomy 32:3-4 I’ll proclaim Yehovah’s name, and declare the greatness of our Elohim! 4 He is the Rock! His work is perfect. Everything He does is just and fair. A faithful Elohim who does no wrong; He is honorable and reliable.

Who is “the 'Special' (holy) One”?

The following five passages tell us plainly that the “'special'One” is—Yeshua!

Luke 1:34-35 Mary asked the Messenger, “How is this possible, since I’m a virgin?”

35 The Messenger replied, “the 'special' spirit will come, and the power of the Highest [Eloia] will overshadow you. So the 'Cherished' One to be born will be called the Son of Yehovah.

Luke 4:33-34 In a synagogue there was a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon, and he cried out loudly, 34 “Let us alone. What do You want with us, Yeshua the Nazarene? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the 'Cherished' One of Yehovah.”

Concerning Yeshua’s body it says:

Acts 2:26-27 So I have peace of mind and praise in my speech. Even my 'body' lives in anticipation 27 because You won’t leave my 'body' in the grave or allow Your 'Cherished' One to 'undergo' bodily decay.

Acts 13:35 He also says in another 'Psalm', “You haven’t allowed Your 'Cherished' One to see decay.”

Concerning the Jew’s choice of who should be shown mercy:

Acts 3:14 You disowned the 'Cherished' and Just One and demanded the release of a murderer.

Forty four times in the Hebrew Scriptures, Yehovah is referred to as the “'special'One”.

Psalm 78:41 Again and again they tested Elohim and provoked the 'special' One of Israel.

Isaiah 5:24 So like flames devouring chaff and like dry grass shriveling down in a flame, that is how their roots will rot, and their blossoms will rise like dust, because they rejected the Torah of Commander Yehovah, AND spurned the Word*, the 'special' One of Israel.

Isaiah 17:7 When That Day Comes, people will look to their Creator and they’ll 'see' the Word, the 'special' One of Israel [2].

[2] This is how it reads in the oldest known Scriptures, the Aramaic Targum: “And they’ll hopefully see the Word, the 'special' One of Israel with their own eyes.”

Isaiah 31:1 How dreadful it will be for 'the people' who go down to Egypt for help, and who depend on horses! They trust in their numerous chariots and their mighty cavalry, but don’t look to the 'special' One of Israel or seek Yehovah!

Isaiah 43:3 Because I am Yehovah your Elohim, the 'special' One of Israel, your Deliverer. I’ve given Egypt as your ransom, Ethiopia and Seba instead of you.

Isaiah 43:15 I am Yehovah, your 'special' One, the Creator of Israel, your King.

Isaiah 47:4 Our Redeemer, whose name is Commander Yehovah, is the 'special' One of Israel.

Isaiah 54:5 For your Makers are your HUSBANDS [yes, both are plural search word: makers]; Yehovah of Armies is His name; and the 'Special' One of Israel is your Redeemer. He will be called the Elohim of the entire earth.

Who is Hosea talking about in chapter 11? It would appear only to represent the nation of Israel:

Hosea 11:1 When Israel was a young man, I loved him, and I called My son out of Egypt.

However, John said that this was a prophecy about Yeshua. This is the only other reference to this idea of a son leaving Egypt in the prophets!

Matthew 2:14-15 So Joseph got up and took the Child and His mother that night and escaped to Egypt. 15 He stayed there until Herod died, to fulfill what was spoken by Yehovah thru His prophet, “I called My Son out of Egypt.

Continuing in Hosea 11, we see that “My Son” who was prophesied to leave Egypt, would later declare that He was “not” any longer a mortal “man” but rather “the 'special' One in the midst of you”:

Hosea 11:9 I won’t unleash My fierce anger. I won’t return to destroy Ephraim because I am Elohim, not a man, the 'special' One among you. I won’t come in anger.

Hosea 11 makes a sobering statement about Judah and the 'special' One.

Hosea 11:12 Ephraim surrounds Me with lies, the House of Israel with deceit. But Judah is still wandering away from Elohim [Gills], and stands against the 'special' Ones. [Yes, it’s plural!]

Could this be a reference to the Jews killing Yeshua for His nation? I believe so. He died FOR Judah, which makes anti-Semitism a bit counterproductive! Furthermore He died “not for the nation only” but to gather all of the Children of Elohim “into one”! (Or should that be “One” ?)

John 11:49-52 But one of them, named Caiaphas, the high priest that year, told them, “You don’t know anything. 50 You don’t realize that it’s better for us, for one Man to die for the people than to have the whole nation destroyed.” 51 However He didn’t say this on his own initiative, but as high priest that year, he prophesied that Yeshua was about to die for the people, 52 and not only for the people, but also to unify the sons of Aloha who were scattered abroad [Gr. diaspora]. 52 and not only for the people, but also to unify the sons of Aloha who were scattered abroad [Gr. diaspora].

Yehovah, “my 'special' One”, is Yeshua “the Rock” (1 Peter 2:7-8)

Habakkuk 1:12 Aren’t you from eternity, Yehovah my Elohim, my 'special' One? We won’t die. Yehovah, You’ve appointed them to punish us. You, Rock, have found them guilty. .

Who else is “from everlasting”?

Micah 5:2 But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, tho you are small among the clans of Judah, yet One will come from you to Me, the One to be Ruler in Israel. He comes from the distant past, from the dawn of eternity.

Yeshua said that His Father is “perfect” as well. Again the two of them are “One” and share a powerful “name”!

John 17:11 From now on I won’t be in the world, but they are in the world. I’m coming to You. Perfect Father, protect those You’ve given to Me in Your name, the name You’ve given to Me, so that they can become one as We are.

Who is Yehovah, the Judge and Ruler?

Psalm 96 is entirely about this time of the worldwide reign of Messiah as well. Here is an excerpt:

Psalm 96:9-13 Worship Yehovah in all of His 'special', splendor. Tremble in His presence, all the earth! 10 Say among the heathen, “Yehovah reigns.” The world is established so that it won’t fall. He’ll judge the nations fairly. 11 The heavens will rejoice and the earth will be glad. The sea and everything in it will roar. 12 The fields will be jubilant, and everything in them, and all the trees in the forest will sing. 13 You will rejoice before Yehovah because He is coming. He is coming to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness and the people with His truth.

Who is the “Almighty” as well as the “Alpha, and the Omega”?

There are four references to Alpha and Omega in the Bible (Aramaic: Aleph and the Tau)—all in Revelation. All four of these references also mention “the First and the Last” or “the Beginning and the End” or both. However, the Revelation 1:8 reference adds something else: “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty”. The “was” indicates that this “Almighty” Alpha and Omega’s eternity was interrupted—He died for us!

Revelation 1:7-8,17-18 He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Yes, Aw-main'. [4] 8 “I am the Alaph and the Tau [Aramaic], says Yehovah Elohim [Yeshua], who is and was, and is to come, the Sovereign”... 17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as tho dead. He laid His right hand on me and said “Don’t be afraid, I am the First and the Last, 18 the living One. I was dead, but look, I’m alive forevermore! Aw-main'. And I have the keys of death and sheol.

[4] The Aramaic word for “suffering” can also imply “patience”, which is how the Greek translator translated it. But the tribulation (pain) and suffering that John said he was to experience go hand in hand.

Now notice that in Revelation 21 that the Father is “the Alpha and the Omega”! In the Revelation it is indisputably always the Father who is described as He who “sits on the throne” (compare Revelation 5:13, 6:16, and 7:10). Simply following the context reveals that they both use this title as well:

Revelation 21:3-7 I heard a loud voice from the sky say, ‘Look, Yehovah’s tabernacle [dwelling place] is among humanity [Gr. anthropos]. He will live with them and they’ll be His people, and Yehovah will be with them, yes Yehovah Himself will be with them.” 4 Every tear will be wiped from their eyes, and there will be no more death [3] or mourning or crying or pain, nor will the previous painful state exist anymore, because the previous evil things have gone away. 5 The One who was seated on the throne said, ‘Look, I am making everything new.’ And He said, ‘Write this down, because these are the faithful and true words of Aloha. [4] 6 Then He said to me, “I am the Aleph and the Tau [Greek: Alpha & Omega], the Beginning and the End. I will allow anyone who is thirsty to drink freely from the spring of living water. 7 Anyone who is victorious will inherit these things. I will be their Aloha and they will be My sons.

[3] The cessation of tears and death begins as soon as the Everlasting Kingdom is established! Check the entire context of Isaiah 25, particularly v.8. Yet the wicked are excluded from this blessing. 1 Corinthians 15:23-24 says, “But everyone in their order, Messiah was the firstfruit. Later, at His coming, those who are the Messiah’s [will be restored to life]. 24 Then the end of these events comes, when He’ll have handed over the Kingdom to Yehovah the Father, when every ruler and every government and every powerful force will have been overthrown.” Many assume that there is a 1,000 year gap between verse 23 and verse 24. They assume that it will take Yeshua 1,000 years to conquer the world. Have they read any prophecies? Zechariah 14 is a detailed account of the hottest spot on earth being conquered in a blitzkrieg (lightning war), it’s called the Day of Yehovah (the “Lord”). The seige of the earth only begins at the Mount of Olives. Ezekiel 38 and 39 is another specific account of the conquest. Some postpone these chapters too. Consequently they must, for example, also think that it will take 1,000 years for Him to “make My 'cherished' name known in the midst of My people Israel” (Ezekiel 39:7) as well.

Later in the chapter it is the Father who is the Almighty:

Revelation 21:22 I didn’t see a Temple [8] in it, because Yehovah Almighty and the Lamb are its Temple.

[8] In the Millennial age there will be another Temple in Jerusalem (not the same as the Jerusalem above {Galatians 4:26}). It will dwarf all previous Temples: Ezekiel 45:1, about 41.6 miles long and 33 miles wide. Technically the enormous New Jerusalem above is a Temple, not a separate part inside of it...“Yehovah’s 'Temple' [New Jerusalem] will be established on the summits of the mountains, and will be borne above the hills” (Micah 4:1).

Yeshua is both Judge and Ruler!

Revelation 12:5 She [Israel] 'had given' birth to a Son who is to rule all nations with a scepter of iron. Her Child was quickly taken up to Yehovah and to His throne.

Romans 14:10 Why do you judge your fellow believers, or why do you consider your fellow believers to be worthless? We must all stand before the judgment seat of Messiah.

One (Mind of) Yehovah/Presently Two Bodies

How could Two be as One in the spirit realm? Aside from the marriage analogy in the Bible, I would like to present another analogy that we in this electronic age can relate to. I view Yehovah as having in essence a wireless Internet connection in His mind. Both the Father and the Son remain constantly aware of what is going on with each other. They are literally of “one mind”! After all, if Yehovah can hear thousands or even millions of prayers at any given moment, why wouldn’t They remain of one mind continuously? Unlike our simple computers tho, They have continuous access to far more information in Their collective mind at all times, information going back in time into eternity. The 'special' spirit is this mind (and more)! Any experience that One has is immediately in the memory of the Other, almost as if it were a personal experience.

There is nothing mentioned in Bible about Yehovah being omnipresent (present everywhere at the same time). That comes from the “nebulous blob” school of thought. However there is another modern convenience that is analogous to what They can do with Their mind. It is as tho They have built in cell phones that span the universe! Every one of us is also connected but the incoming signal is weak at best.

They would have to have a fantastic ability to process information. (Almost certainly They would have some filters in place to block irrelevant events from Their consciousness.) The other fancy term “omnipotent” (having unlimited power) is Biblically sound. What good would it be if They had all knowledge, but could not intervene when need be? So They can act on Their infinite knowledge.

Hebrews 4:12 The Word of Aloha [Yeshua] is living and active and more penetrating than any double edged sword, even severing between the consciousness [psyche, Gr: psuche] and the spirit, piercing between the joints and the marrow and the bones [Aramaic], and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of our minds.

This is what the 'special' spirit accomplishes. The spirit is not a separate “being” of some sort, regardless of the fact that translators (whose jobs are and were on the line) consistently substitute “he” for “it” in reference to the 'special' spirit. And of course there are a couple of verses that were corrupted to appear to support the Trinity. (I explain the source of a key falsified “scripture” in Constantine Wrote Matthew 28:19 Into Your Bible! ) The 'special' spirit is the “power source” that the Father and Son share!

Imagine the paternity suit that the Father could present against the 'special' spirit, if “he” as a “being” claimed to be the true Father of Yeshua:

Luke 1:30-35 The Messenger told her, “Don’t be afraid, Mary, because you have found favor with Yehovah. 31 You’ll conceive and give birth to a Son, and you will name Him Yeshua (Jesus)! 32 He’ll be great and will be called ‘the Son of the Highest’, and Yehovah Aloha will give Him the throne of His ancestor David. 33 He’ll reign over the descendants of Jacob forever in His unending Kingdom.” [3] 34 Mary asked the Messenger, “How is this possible, since I’m a virgin?” 35 The Messenger replied, “the 'special' spirit will come, and the power of the Highest [Eloia] will overshadow you. So the 'Cherished' One to be born will be called the Son of Yehovah.

[3] It’s not just a millennial Kingdom: Psalms 145:3, Daniel 7:27, 2 Peter 1:11.

The key phrase to notice is that the 'special' spirit” IS “the POWER of the Most High!”

I believe that the admonition to be of “one mind” is also an indication of our eventual state of mind. I envision the time when we will be able to tap into that “'special' spirit Mind” and perceive everything in eternity past, as tho it were a personal memory. Certainly Yehovah would keep an extensive “high definition library”.

While I was an avid Star Trekkie, I think that the Borg, with their cubic city in deep space, were inspired by “the dark side” as a kind of sarcastic or even more insidious portrayal of the cubic New Jerusalem and its inhabitants who are all of the same mind. These beings are derogatively portrayed as having a “collective” beehive mentality. The coincidence is too great to ignore. Some extremists actually view the Borg “chronicle” as a prophetic warning against “siding with” the New Jerusalem!

Revelation 21:16 The city was laid out in a square, its length was the same as its width. And he measured the city with the rod at 12,000 stadia [7], and the length, width and height were all equal.

[7]: a “place in which contests in running were held, the one who outstripped the rest and reached the goal first, receiving the prize. Courses of this description were found in most of the larger Greek cities, and were like that at Olympia, 600 Greek feet in length.”—OBGL

The portrayal of the inhabitants of cubic city as mind numbed drones who were once free people but who had their minds and individuality stolen is undoubtedly a clandestine condemnation of being of one mind.

In the original Star Trek series there is a more favorable perception of being of one mind. The Vulcans were able to “lay hands” on another individual and do a “mind meld”. As they were establishing this mental link they would say something like “my thoughts to your thoughts, your thoughts to mine”. The complete sharing of minds was portrayed as a beautiful and enlightening experience. From the science fiction world, the original series incidence of being of one mind was, I believe, much closer to what it will be like to share the mind of Yehovah.

When we receive the 'special' spirit we are actually, to a small degree, able to know the very thoughts of Yehovah. Once we have the 'special' spirit, we are more attuned to Yehovah’s mind. As we mature in the faith, Yehovah will reveal things to our minds.

One Mind verses

The very foundation of being a “Believer” in “the Way” is repentance. Here is a thoro definition:

Easton’s Revised Bible Dictionary: Repentance:
There are three Greek words used in the New Testament to denote repentance.
1. The verb metamelomai is used of a change of mind, such as to produce regret or even remorse on account of sin, but not necessarily a change of heart. This word is used with reference to the repentance of Judas #Mt 27:3
2. Metanoeo, meaning to change one’s mind and purpose, as the result of after knowledge. This verb, with
3. the cognate noun metanoia, is used of true repentance, a change of mind and purpose and life, to which remission of sin is promised. Evangelical repentance consists of
a. a true sense of one’s own guilt and sinfulness;
b. an apprehension of God’s mercy in Messiah;
c. an actual hatred of sin #Ps 119:128 Job 42:5,6 2Co 7:10 and turning from it to God
d. a persistent endeavour after a holy life in a walking with God in the way of his commandments. The true penitent is conscious of guilt #Ps 51:4,9 of pollution #Ps 51:5,7,10 and of helplessness #Ps 51:11 109:21,22 Thus he apprehends himself to be just what God has always seen him to be and declares him to be. But repentance comprehends not only such a sense of sin, but also an apprehension of mercy, without which there can be no true repentance #Ps 51:1 130:4

There is much said about obtaining the very mind of Yehovah. Here are several verses showing that.

1 Corinthians 2:16 Who understands the mind of Yehovah, so that they can instruct Him? But we have the mind of the Messiah.

Philipptians 1:27 You should live your lives as good citizens, in a manner worthy of the Good News of the Messiah, so that whether I come and see you again, or whether I am far away, I can hear about you and know that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind, playing together to win [see root: athleo] by the faith that the Good News brings.

Philipptians 2:2 then make my joy complete by having the same attitude and sharing the same love, the same spirit and the same mind.

Philipptians 2:5 You should have the same sentiments as Yeshua Messiah did.

Philipptians 3:15-16 So then, all of us who are mature should consider these views, and if you have any different views, Yehovah will also clarify that for you. 16 However, so that we all arrive, let’s stay on the same course, and have the same heart.

Philipptians 4:2 I urge Euodias and Syntyche to be of one mind, thru Yehovah.

Hebrews 8:10 But this is the covenant that I’ll make with the household of Israel after that time, says Yehovah, I’ll put My Torah in their minds—inscribing it on their innermost being. I’ll be their Aloha [God] and they’ll be My people.

1 Peter 4:1 So since the Messiah suffered for you in His physical body, you should arm yourselves with the same heart, because everyone who has died physically is finished sinning [1].

[1] The Greek translations unanimously say: “A person who has suffered physically no longer sins”, but we all know that isn’t right.

Again, I don’t think that this is figurative. Yehovah can even “download” information into the minds of people who are not seeking any truth, when it advances or expedites His plan. Just prior to the Exodus, Yehovah altered the thinking of the Pharaoh for the purpose of bringing about the birth of the nation of Israel.

Exodus 4:21 Yehovah said to Moses, “When you arrive back in Egypt, make sure that you perform all the miracles before Pharaoh that I’ve put within your 'power', but I’ll strengthen his 'resolve' and he won’t let the people go.

It is quite simple really! Thoughts can come directly “into your mind.”


Daniel 2:27-29 Daniel replied to the king: “No wise man, enchanter, magician or astrologer can reveal the king’s secret, 28 but there is an Elohim in heaven who reveals secrets, and He has revealed to King Nebuchadnezzar what will happen during at the end of days. This was your dream and the visions you 'saw' while you were lying in bed:

29 My king, while you were lying in bed your thoughts turned to what is going to happen; and the One who reveals mysteries has revealed to you what will happen.

Yehovah actually searches everyone’s mind to see who has “a willing mind”, that is, wanting to know and act on any truth that Yehovah chooses to reveal. But don’t expect Yehovah to do all of the work. He only installs information that is of a critical nature, and when our own serious studies fail to make the connection. Most people have an extremely difficult time separating their own biases from inspiration, so be careful what you attribute to Yehovah! Be careful what you “accept on faith”.

Even an ass or two can be inspired:

Numbers 22:28-33 Yehovah gave the donkey the ability to speak, and she asked Balaam, “What have I done to you for you to have struck me three times?” 29 Then Balaam said to the donkey, “You’ve made me look stupid. If I had a sword in my hand, I’d kill you right now.” 30 The donkey said to Balaam, “I’m your own donkey, the one you’ve ridden all your life. Have I ever done anything like this before?” And he said, “No.” 31 Then Yehovah opened Balaam’s eyes, and he saw the Messenger of Yehovah standing in the roadway with a drawn sword in His hand; so Balaam bowed facedown to the ground. 32 The Messenger of Yehovah asked him, “Why have you struck your donkey these three times? Look, I came out to oppose you because you are recklessly resisting Me. 33 The donkey saw me and turned away from me all three times. Unless she had turned away from me, I would certainly have killed you by now and let her live.”

Did you notice that if the ass hadn’t been acting somewhat under her own free will, Balaam would have been struck dead!
