The Transcendent Son Hidden in Elohim

Posted by on May 26, 2019 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

The transcendent Son of YHVH exists beyond and outside the ordinary range of human experience or understanding. The Bible and the Rabbinical literature undoubtedly speak of a preexisting Being in heaven, who was in the Creator’s plan at the origin of the universe, through whom and for whom all things visible and invisible were created: The transcendent Son of YHVH. The Messiah of YHVH has a human nature with all human traits including the ability to sin. And indeed,...

The Former Rain and the Latter Rain of the Messiah

Posted by on Apr 28, 2019 in The Messiah

“The former rain and the latter rain” is the designation of the coming of Yeshua the Messiah for His first and second comings. His first coming “the former rain”, although highly expected, was obscured in the Torah and the Prophets for a good reason. Not even the principalities of this world knew about it; if they had known, they would have never crucified Him. However, His second coming “the latter rain” is plainly revealed in the...

Revealing Yeshua Secretly Guarded by the Rabbis

Posted by on Apr 21, 2019 in The Messiah

The Name of Yeshua has been secretly and jealously guarded by the Rabbis of blessed memory throughout the centuries that He is the long-anticipated Messiah of Israel about whom Mosheh prophesied at Mount Nebo. And YHVH said to me, ‘What they have spoken is good. I shall raise up for them Prophet like you out of the midst of their brothers. And I shall put My Words in His mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I command Him. And it shall be, the man who does not listen...

Did Israel Reject the Messiah? Part 2

Posted by on Apr 14, 2019 in The Messiah

The Roman exile The Covenant of YHVH was offered to Israel on four occasions: (1) at Mount Sinai where all Israel, native and non-native stood at the mountain and entered into covenantal relationship with the Elohim of the fathers (see Exo 19-20); it would not take them so long to fail to stay in the Covenant (see Num 13). (2) Upon entering the Land when the new generation born in the desert stood at Mount Nebo to renew the Covenant (see Deu 29-30); that generation under...

Did Israel Reject the Messiah? Part 1

Posted by on Apr 13, 2019 in The Messiah

The Sages understood that the coming of the Messiah was due two thousand years ago when He was expected to initiate the Messianic era. Tanna debe Eliyahu reads: The world is to exist six thousand years. In the first two thousand there was desolation; two thousand years the Torah flourished; and the next two thousand years is the Messianic era, but through our many iniquities all these years have been lost [He should have come at the beginning of the last two thousand years;...

Is It Lawful to Call Yeshua ‘Elohim’?

Posted by on Sep 30, 2018 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

Is it in accordance with the Torah to call the Messiah Yeshua ‘Elohim’? To answer this question, first we need to find out what the Hebrew word “elohim” means. It may be a surprise for the reader to learn that there is no specific word in Hebrew that denotes what in the Gentile languages is known as “god”. The word “God” (German: “Gott”) is an abstract word that denotes a concept of any supernatural being...

The True Parable of the Good Samaritan

Posted by on Sep 19, 2018 in The Messiah

The Parable of the Good Samaritan is perhaps the most recognizable parable among the Christians today, and the term the Good Samaritan has become synonymous with a good person and a good Christian. On the opposite side, however, very often the Parable of the Good Samaritan has been used to denote “Pharisaic hypocrisy”, as the parable has been interpreted as an apparent illustration of “religious legalism”. But is this the true story of the parable?...

Is Yeshua the Prophet in Deu 18:15?

Posted by on Aug 18, 2018 in The Messiah

Who is the prophet YHVH promised to Israel in Deu 18:15? Is this any prophet from the midst of Israel, or the Prophet promised from the very beginning of the world? We read from Deu 18:15-16 thus, Yehovah your Elohim shall raise up for you a prophet like me from your midst, from your brothers. Listen to him, according to all you asked of Yehovah your Elohim in Horev in the day of the assembly, saying, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of Yehovah my Elohim, nor let me see...

The Time When the Messiah will be Subject to the Father

Posted by on Aug 17, 2018 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

When reading the Scripture, very often we overlook important passages, especially when the main Biblical event has come to its completion and we relax our efforts to learn. For years the present author has been perplexing as to the meaning of a certain verse in the Scripture, even a phrase, in the first letter of Shaul (Paul) the Apostle to the Corinthians. We read thus in 1Co 15:28: And when all are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself shall also be subject to Him who...

Why did Moses Have to Break the Tablets of the Covenant of YHVH?

Posted by on Jan 28, 2018 in The Messiah

When Mosheh came down to the camp to find out that Israel had already desecrated the Covenant of YHVH, commonly know as The Ten Commandments, by having broken the Second Commandment and threw the tablets and broke them before their eyes, did he not know what he did? Did he not know that the tablets were written with the finger of Elohim? Yes, Mosheh was completely aware of the consequences for his actions. When he broke the tablets of the Covenant of YHVH, he knew that they...

Messiah and the Temple. When will He Build the Third Temple?

Posted by on Jan 12, 2018 in The Messiah

Rabbi Moses ben Maimon, commonly known as Maimonides or Rambam, teaches in his book the Mishna Torah (Hilchot Malachim 11:4) that when the Messiah comes He will also reinstate the Third Temple. His teaching is based on a prophecy in Zec 6:12-13 in which YHVH of the hosts said thus, See, the Man whose name is the Branch! And from His place He shall branch out, and He shall build the Temple of Yehovah. It is He who is going to build the Temple of Yehovah. It is He who is...

Did YHVH Tell Abraham to Sacrifice Isaac?

Posted by on Nov 12, 2017 in The Messiah

In the story of the banishment of Ishmael in Genesis 21, YHVH told Avraham that in his son Yitschak (Isaac) his seed was called (Gen 21:12), but in Gen 22:2 YHVH seems to have turned the promise upside down when He told Avraham to sacrifice Isaac. And in the culmination of the story in Gen 22:12, it seems that YHVH “changed” His mind again when He told him not to sacrifice Isaac thus having created another internal challenge for Avraham. And He said, “Take your...
