The Pre-existing first-born Son of Elohim

Posted by on Jun 14, 2020 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

The question “Does God have a pre-existing Son, first-born of the creation?” always opens the door of polemic between religions that will never be closed by men. The verses from JPS translation (Gen 6:2-4, Job 1:6, Job 2:1, and Job 38:7) showing that the Creator of the universe does have sons, namely, His messengers (angels), do not bring much argumentation. If the argument against them is that these verses are general references to angels, and no specific son...

The Hebrew Ruach HaKodesh vs the Roman Holy Spirit

Posted by on Dec 15, 2019 in Oneness of the Creator

The Hebrew Ruach HaKodesh and the Roman Holy Spirit are two different concepts of the power of the Creator; the former sees Ruach HaKodesh as the creative force, the power of the Creator through which everything came into existence, while the latter sees it as the “third person” of the “Holy Trinity”: The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, three persons in one God, all Gods, yet they are one God. In this trinitarian formula, which appears only in...

The Oneness of the Creator

Posted by on Dec 11, 2019 in Oneness of the Creator

If there is a human being who had ever known the Oneness of the Creator, that was Mosheh. He was the only human being who had ever known the Creator so closely, to speak with Him mouth to mouth and face to face, yet, he simply said, “Listen up O Israel, YHVH is one!” The common understanding of this appeal, known as Shema Israel, is the Oneness of Creator God, i.e. the oneness or unity of the Godhead, and the obedience of His people to His will. In Time of...

Virgin Birth of the Messiah the Mystery of Life

Posted by on Dec 1, 2019 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

Virgin birth of the Messiah is a main stream theological doctrine, according to which the Messiah had no human father. Matthew clearly testifies that Yeshua the Messiah was born to a virgin, Miryam, and Yoseph adopted her son. However, Shaul says that the Son of Elohim had no father and mother, without genealogy, yet, we believe that the Messiah was born to a virgin mother. And if a birth is only possible at fertilization of a woman’s reproductive egg by a man’s...

Mystery of Origin of Life

Posted by on Nov 28, 2019 in Oneness of the Creator

The origin of life by the Spirit of Elohim and the inspiring with life from the Breath of the Almighty has always been a mystery. Elohim created man in His image and since then Adam’s creation is repeated in the formation of every human being. Thus, man became the image of Elohim not in the bodily form, but by the merit of His Breath by which he became a living soul. Man will never truly comprehend the mystery of origin of life and the way he was created. Yet, Newton...

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,...

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 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...

Because a Child is Born to Us, His Name will be the Prince of Peace

Posted by on Jun 24, 2017 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

There is a verse in Isa 9 that deeply divides Jews and Christians, because a child is born to us, Emmanuel, whose name is called Prince of Peace. But should they be? And who is that child concerning whom the prophet says “a child is born to us”. We read in Isa 9:6 KJV thus, For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father,...

The Human Messiah Part I

Posted by on Oct 30, 2016 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

The human Messiah, the son of man, was born with all human traits that every person had. Yet, He did not sin. His flawlessness did not come from being born without the ability to sin, but from being born as a normal human being with all possibility to sin. Only then His obedience and faithfulness can be measured up to the high standard of being the Messiah. The significance of the prophecy in 2Sa 7 concerning the Messiah becomes even more prominent when we understand that...

The Human Messiah Part II

Posted by on Nov 14, 2016 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

It is commonly understood among Bible scholars that Yonah (Jonah) was swallowed by the big fish and after being three days and three nights in its stomach was vomited out alive. The textual support of this story is that Yonah actually prayed to YHVH from the stomach of the fish as seen in Jon_2:2-9. But Yehovah appointed a great fish to swallow Yonah. And Yonah was in the stomach of the fish three days and three nights. (Jon 1:17) Below is the Hebrew text with a...

And You Shall Call His Name Immanuel

Posted by on Aug 17, 2016 in Oneness of the Creator, The Messiah

Who is the son named “Immanuel” in the prophecy? In the scroll of Isaiah the name of the Messiah “Immanuel” appears only twice: in Isa 7:14 and Isa 8:8, and in the Apostolic Writings it appears only once in the Gospel of Matthew only as a reference to Isaiah. And once given in Matthew it has never been mentioned again. Why? And if it was prophesied in Isaiah, why was another name given in Matthew: “Yeshua”? And which of them is His name?...
