What is life

  1. 1. Sherut haRitztzuy (the ministry of reconcilliation) by whom we have now received the reconcilliation ( Atonement)Let this day be a day of reconcilliation and regeneration) Unto EHYEH ASHER EHYEH My Memorial for generation after generation." Shemot 3:13-16 This is MY NAME for ever, I AM / WILL BE WHAT I AM / WILL BE: The ministry of reconciliation Message of Reconciliation Torah sh’Bichtav (Written Torah) Who hath ears to hear, let him hear. What is Life
  2. 2. or rather Mans life came from the breath of Elohiym. What is the breath of Elohiym? What is the meaning behind Yëshuås constant use of the word life This word comes from the Hebrew word, chai. The verbal root of chay is chayah Chayah is generally translated as living or quickened. Tehillim 33:6By the word of YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. By the word of the YHWH were the heavens made.” The messengers heavens, the sidereal heavens, and the firmament or terrestrial heavens, were all made to start into existence by a word; what if we say by the Word, “For without him was not anything made that is made.” It is interesting to note the mention of the Ruakh in the next clause, “and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth;” the word “breath” is the same as is elsewhere rendered Ruakh. Thus the three persons of the YHWHhead unite in creating all things. How easy for the YHWH to make the mostponderous orbs, and the most glorious messengers A word, a breath could do it. It is as easy for YHWH to create the universe as for a man to breathe, nay, far easier, for man breathes not independently, but borrows the breath in his nostrils from his Maker. It may be gathered from this verse that the constitution of all things is from the infinite wisdom, for his word may mean his appointment and determination. A wise and merciful Word has arranged, and a living Ruakh sustains all the creation of YHWH. Yochanan 6:63 It is the Ruakh that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are Ruakh, and [they] are life. It is the Ruakh who gives life; the flesh profits nothing: This could well be the "theme statement" for this whole discourse of Yëshuå. He continually calls us to put our heart and focus, on spiritual realities, not fleshly things.: Yëshuå rebuked their own, carnal, fleshly motivation in following Him. If they do not seek Him by the Ruakh instead of seeking Him as a walking bakery, then they have not come to Him at all.Right from the beginning we see that our life comes from the Ruakh of YHWH, the breath of YHWH, the Words of Elohiym Devarim 32:46 And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you
  3. 3. this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this Torah ( ‫ .) תורה‬For it [is] not a vain thing for you; because it [is] your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong [your] days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it. One of haSatan’s great lies to us is that it is a futile thing to serve YHWH and obeyHis word. It often seems that those who are against YHWH prosper more than thosewho are for Him. Yet, we need to see and understand - from an eternal perspective - that it is not a futile thing to love and obey YHWH. Tehillim 119:50 This has comforted me in my affliction; for Your word has revived me. “It would seem as though this section expressed the feelings of one in the midst of affliction. It does not sing the song of deliverance therefrom. The word is distinctly, ‘This is my comfort in my affliction.’” (Morgan)In this stanza there is no specific prayer for help. Instead, there are “statements bythe writer that he trusts what YHWH has written in his law and will continue to love it and obey its teachings. It is a way of acknowledging that suffering is common to human beings.” (Boice) “The worldling clutches his money-bag, and says, ‘this is my comfort’; thespendthrift points to his gaiety and shouts, ‘this is my comfort’; the drunkard lifts his glass and sings, ‘this is my comfort’; but the man whose hope comes from YHWH feels the life-giving power of the word of YHWH, and he testifies, ‘this is my comfort.’” (Spurgeon) Devarim 30:16In that I command thee this day to love YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha, to halak (walk) in His ways, and to keep His mitzvot (commandments) and His chukkot ( statues)and His mishpatim, (judgements) that thou mayest live and multiply: and YHWH ( ( ‫יהוה‬ Eloheicha shall bless thee in the eretz whither thou goest to possess it.Today YIsraEL is a largely lost secular nation. There is respect for the scripture as a book of history and national identity, but there is not, and has not been, a true turning to the YHWH Yëshuå, particularly as a nation. We can say that in a sense, not even the religious or Orthodox Jews have completely turned to YHWH. Though they have had an important and precious part in YHWH’s plan for YIsraEL in helping a spiritual consciousness for the Jewish people to survive through the centuries of the Diaspora, they have not truly turned to YHWH. We can say this because the character and nature of YHWH is perfectly expressed in His Meshiakh, YIsraEL. YIsraEL said,He who believes in Me, believes not in Me but in Him who sent Me. And he who sees Me sees Him who sent Me. Since the Jewish people, except for a precious remnant, reject YIsraEL, they are rejecting the Eloahi YHWH.
  4. 4. But YHWH’s promise still stands. As the final aspect of the promise to regather YIsraEL, YHWH will restore them spiritually. He promises to circumcise your heart. This is an idea repeated in the promises of the renewed Covenant, in passages like Ezekiel 36:26-27: I will give you a new heart and put a new Ruakh within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Ruakh within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Indeed, Paul promised that all YIsraEL will be saved Romans 11:26 And so all Yisrael shall be saved: As it is written:There shall come out of Tzyon the Deliverer, and shall turn away wickness from Yaakov: Yëshuå said that He would not return until YIsraEL embraced Him as Meshiakh: Matthew 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Baruch ha ba BShem YHWH. “Blessed is He who comes in the name of YHWH!” Some have thought that because the modern regathering of YIsraEL has not yet demonstrated this spiritual dynamic that it has nothing to do with these prophesies. But the spiritual dynamic is properly listed in Deuteronomy 30:2-6 And shalt return unto YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha, and shalt shema (obey) his voice according to all that I command thee this day, thou and thy children, with all thine heart, and with all thy soul; That then YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha will turn thy captivity, and have compassion upon thee, and will return and gather thee from all the nations, whither YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha hath scattered thee. If [any] of thine be driven out unto the outmost [parts] of shamayim, from thence will YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha gather thee, and from thence will he fetch thee: And YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha will bring thee into the eretz which thy avot possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy avot. And YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha willcircumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. as the last of the blessings of regathering. Also, the picture of regathering in Ezekiel 37 ( please read ) the vision of the dry bones - shows YIsraEL regathered, and strong, before YHWH breathed the breath of His Ruakh on the regathered YIsraEL. We regard the modern
  5. 5. regathering of YIsraEL as a remarkable sign, and an extremely significant - but thus far only partial - fulfillment of these prophesies. Tehillim 119:93: "I will never forget thy PRECEPTS: for with them thou hast given me LIFE." YHWH’s word brings life because it is alive. “The scripture is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me; it has hands, it lays hold of me. The scripture is not antique or modern. It is eternal.” (Luther, cited in Boice) Mishlei 13:14: "The LAW of the wise is a fountain of LIFE, to depart from the snares of death." It is the same to him as the “vein of lives,” ‫מקור חיים‬ mekor chaiyim, the great aorta which transmits the blood from the heart to every part of the body. There seems to be here an allusion to the garden of paradise, to the tree of lives, tothe tempter, to the baleful issue of that temptation, and to the death entailed on man by his unwisely breaking the law of his YHWH. Mishlei 3:1 - 2:"My son, forget not my LAW; but let thine heart KEEP my commandments: for length of days and long LIFE, and peace, shall they add to thee."Remember what thou hast heard, and practice what thou dost remember; and let all obedience be from the heart: “Let thy heart keep my commandments.” Three eminent blessings are promised here: ‫ארך ימים‬ orech yamim, long days; ‫שנות חיים‬ shenoth chaiyim, years of lives; ‫שלום‬ shalom, prosperity; i.e. health, long life, and abundance. Mizmor 119:17: "Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may LIVE, and KEEP thy WORD."reward thy servant. Let him have the return of his faith and prayers, that the Divine life may be preserved in his soul! Then he will keep thy word. From ‫ גמל‬gamal, to reward, etc., comes the name of ‫ ג‬gimel, the third letter in the Hebrew alphabet, Mizmor 119:144: "The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting; give me UNDERSTANDING, and I shall LIVE." Thy moral law was not made for one people, or for one particular time; it is as imperishable as thy nature, and of endless obligation. It is that law by which all the
  6. 6. children of Adam shall be Judged. Give me understanding - To know and practice it.And I shall live - Shall glorify thee, and live eternally; not for the merit of having done it, but because thou didst fulfill the work of the law in my heart, having saved me from condemnation by it. Mizmor 119:24 - 32: "Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors. My soul clings to the dust; give me LIFE according to your WORD. I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me; teach me THY STATUTES. Make me to understand the WAY of THY PRECEPTS; so shall I talk of thy wondrous works. My soul melteth for heaviness; strengthen thou me according to thy WORD. Remove from me the way of lying, and grant me thy LAW graciously. I have chosen the way of TRUTH; thine ORDINANCES have I laid before me. I have clung to thy TESTIMONIES; O YHWH, put me not to shame. I will run the WAY of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart." The first occurrence, as it relates to humans, is in Breshith 2:7.And YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Elohim ( ‫ ) אלהים‬formed man [of] the dust of the adamah (ground), and breathed into His nostrils the nishmat chayim (the breath of life); and man became nefesh chayah. And breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being: With this Divine breath man became a living being, like other forms of animal life The first human had his body formed out of the dust, or the clay, of the Earth. At this moment, he was nothing more than a lifeless corpse. This lifeless corpse, though, had nishmat chayim (breath of life) implanted into him by YHWH—and at that point there was a heartbeat and brain activity. And he became a (nefesh chayah ) living being or a living person was formed. Adam was no longer just a corpse, but an actual person lets examine it more closely .Dust + Breath of Life = A Living Soul Dust That man is dust and that he returns to dust at his death is obvious from what YHWH tells Adam later on in Beresheet 3:19, In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou [art], and unto dust shalt thou return. Adam and Eve learned by painful experience that because YHWH is holy and hates sin, he must punish sinners. The rest of the book of Genesis recounts painful stories of lives ruined as a result of the Fall. Disobedience is sin, and it breaks our fellowship with YHWH. But, fortunately, when we disobey, YHWH is willing to forgive us and to restore our relationship with him.Adam and Eves disobedience and fall from YHWHs gracious presence affected all creation, including the environment. Years ago people thought nothing of polluting streams with chemical wastes and garbage. This seemed so insignificant, so small. Now we know that just two or three parts per million of certain chemicals can damage human health. Sin in our lives is similar to pollution in streams. Even small amounts are deadly.
  7. 7. There have been many men in the scripture who have recognized this fact such as Abraham in Bereshett 18:27 And Avraham answered and said: "Hinnei now, I have taken upon me to speak unto the YHWH , which [am but] dust and ashes:" Did Abraham change YHWHs mind? Of course not. The more likely answer is that YHWH changed Abrahams mind. Abraham knew that YHWH is just and that hepunishes sin, but he may have wondered about YHWHs mercy. Abraham seemed tobe probing YHWHs mind to see how merciful he really was. He left his conversationwith YHWH convinced that YHWH was both kind and fair. Our prayers wont change YHWHs mind, but they may change ours just as Abrahams prayer changed his. Prayer helps us better understand the mind of YHWH.Why did YHWH let Abrahamquestion his justice and intercede for a wicked city? Abraham knew that YHWH must punish sin, but he also knew from experience that YHWH is merciful to sinners. YHWH knew there were not 10 innocent people in the city, but he was merciful enough to allow Abraham to intercede. He was also merciful enough to help Lot,Abrahams nephew, get out of Sodom before it was destroyed. YHWH does not take pleasure in destroying the wicked, but he must punish sin. He is both just and merciful. We should be thankful that YHWHs mercy extends to us. Job 10:9,Remember, I beseech thee, that thou hast made me as the clay; and wilt thou bring me into dust again? It is important to keep in mind that our bodies are made of dust and that they returnto dust when we die. It should change our whole attitude before YHWH because he is our maker. He has formed us and given us life, and he can take it away. YHWH is the only source we can look to for life and immortality 1 Timothy 6:16. Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto;whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom [be] honour and power everlasting. Amein. It ill becomes any men, but especially men of YHWH, to set their hearts upon the things of this world; men of YHWH should be taken up with the things of YHWH. There must be a conflict with corruption, and temptations, and the powers of darkness. Eternal life is the crown proposed for our encouragement. We are called tolay hold thereon. To the rich must especially be pointed out their dangers and duties, as to the proper use of wealth. But who can give such a charge, that is not himselfabove the love of things that wealth can buy? The appearing of Yëshuå is certain, butit is not for us to know the time. Mortal eyes cannot bear the brightness of the Divine glory. None can approach him except as he is made known unto sinners in and by Yëshuå. Breath of Life
  8. 8. The Hebrew words for breath of life are "neshema chay" which is also termed the Ruakh or "ruakh" of YHWH Beresheet 7:15,22. And they went in unto Noach into the tevah (ark ‫ ,) בבה‬two and two of all flesh, wherein [is] ha ruach chayim (breath of life). All in whose nostrils [was] ha ruach chayim (breath of life), of all that [was] in the dry [land], died. The breath or Ruakh of life is what gives life and therefore we find that when the scriptures speak of death it is when the breath or Ruakh of YHWH is taken away. Job 34:14-15 If he set his heart upon man, [if] he gather unto himself his ruach and his breath; All flesh shall perish together, and man shall turn again unto dust. If He should gather to Himself His Ruakh and His breath, all flesh would perishtogether, and man would return to dust: Here Elihu wanted to emphasize the idea of YHWH’s independence and transcendence. He wanted Job to remember that YHWH was so mighty that Job was entirely wrong to question Him at all. Tehillim 104:29Thou hidest thy face, they are troubled: thou takest away their breath, they die, and return to their dust. Today many people are arrogant enough to think they dont need YHWH. But ourevery breath depends on the life he has breathed into us Not only do we depend onYHWH for life, but he wants the best for us. We should also desire to learn more of his plans for us each day. Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the Ruakh shall return unto Elohim ( ‫ ) אלהים‬who gave it. Stripped of the life-giving Ruakh breathed into us by YHWH, our bodies return todust. Stripped of YHWHs purpose, our work is in vain. Stripped of YHWHs love, our service is futile. We must put YHWH first over all we do and in all we do becausewithout him we have nothing. Knowing that life is futile without YHWH motivates the wise person to seek YHWH first. Living SoulThe Hebrew word for living soul is "nephesh chay" and interestingly enough the first usage of the word is applied to animals in Beresheet 1:20-21, "And YHWH said, Let the waters bring forth abundantly the moving creature that hath life (CHAY), and fowl that may fly above the earth in the open firmament of heaven. And YHWH created great whales, and every living creature (NEPHESHCHAY) that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind: and YHWH saw that it was good."
  9. 9. It is also used that way in Beresheet 1:27 So Elohim created man in His own image; in the image of Elohim He created him; male and female He created them and Beresheet 2:19.And out of the ground YHWH( ‫ ) יהוה‬Elohim ( ‫ ) אלהים‬formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought [them] unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that [was] the name thereof.These verses tell us that both man and beast have something in common which is the breath or Ruakh Beresheet 7:21-22 And all flesh died that moved upon the earth, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of behemah, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth, and every man: All in whose nostrils [was] ha ruach chayim (breath of life), of all that [was] in the dry [land], died. which makes them a living soul. Once we know this then the verse in Ecclesiates 3:18-20 Kohelet 3:18-20 I said in mine heart concerning the estate of the sons of men, that Elohim ( ( ‫אלהים‬might manifest them, and that they might see that they themselves are beasts. For thatwhich mikreh (fate) the sons of men mikreh (fate) beasts; even one thing mikreh (fate) them: as the one dieth, so dieth the other; yea, they have all one breath; so that a man hath no preeminence above a beast: for all [is] vanity. All go unto one place; all are of the dust, and all turn to dust again. becomes quite clear, This is very plain. Physically man is not above the beast. They are both made of the dust, they have the same type of breath or Ruakh which is given by YHWH, and they are all living souls, but when YHWH withdraws his breath they both return to the dust. One thing is different though between man and beast. Man is the only one to have been made in the "image and likeness" of the Elohim Beresheet 1:27 So Elohim created man in His own image; in the image of Elohim He created him; male and female He created them This gives him the ability to be a partaker in the promises of YHWH and to attain unto eternal life which is the gift of YHWH. For proof of this compare Tehillim 49:20 Man [that is] in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts [that] perish. and
  10. 10. Kefa bet 1:3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that [pertain] unto life and chasidus (piety), through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: The power to lead a Set Apart life comes from YHWH. Because we dont have the resources to be truly a set apart life in , YHWH allows us to "share his divine nature" in order to keep us from sin and help us live for him. When we are born again, YHWH by his Ruach empowers us with his own goodness. Kefa bet 1:4 Whereby are given unto us exceeding great and precious promises: that by these ye might be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the Olam Hazeh through taavah (lust). and it is seen that the knowledge of YHWH and his ways is what distinguishes us from the beasts. The word "living soul" is used both of man and of beasts and could be described in the following way, NEPHESH a Body of dudt that is animated by the breath of ruakh of YHWH. This breath makes it alive and thus it is “ NEPHESH CHAY “ or a living soul. Without this breath the soul, body of life Ezekeil 18:4 Hinnei, all nefashot are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die. The soul that sinneth it shall die. As to eternity, every man was, is, and will be dealt with, as his conduct shows him to have been under the old covenant of works, or thenew covenant of grace. Whatever outward sufferings come upon men through the sins of others, they deserve for their own sins all they suffer; and the YHWH overrules every event for the eternal good of believers. All souls are in the hand of the great Creator: he will deal with them in justice or mercy; nor will any perish for the sins of another, who is not in some sense worthy of death for his own. We all have sinned, and our souls must be lost, if YHWH deal with us according to his holy law; but we are invited to come to Yëshuå. If a man who had shown his faith by his works, had awicked son, whose character and conduct were the reverse of his parents, could it be expected he should escape the Divine vengeance on account of his fathers piety? Surely not. And should a wicked man have a son who walked before YHWH asrighteous, this man would not perish for his fathers sins. If the son was not free from evils in this life, still he should be partaker of salvation. The question here is not about the meritorious ground of justification, but about the YHWHs dealings with the righteous and the wicked. and the body returns back to dust and Beresheet 1:26-27 Yet only man is a living being made in the image of YHWH Then Elohim said, Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and
  11. 11. over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth. So Elohim created man in His own image; in the image of Elohim He created him; male and female He created them. Mans life came from the breath of Elohiym. What is the breath of Elohiym? Tehillim 33:6By the word of YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. Yochanan 6:63 It is the Ruakh that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, [they] are Ruakh, and [they] are life. Right from the beginning we see that our life comes from the Ruakh of YHWH, the breath of YHWH, the Words of Elohiym Devarim 32:46And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among youthis day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this Torah ( ‫ .) תורה‬For it [is] not a vain thing for you; because it [is] your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong [your] days in the land, whither ye go over Jordan to possess it. Tehillim 119:50 This has comforted me in my affliction; for Your word has revived me. Devarim 30:16 In that I command thee this day to love YHWH ( ‫ ) יהוה‬Eloheicha, to halak (walk) in His ways, and to keep His mitzvot (commandments) and His chukkot ( statues)and His mishpatim, (judgements) that thou mayest live and multiply: and YHWH ( ( ‫יהוה‬ Eloheicha shall bless thee in the eretz whither thou goest to possess it. Tehillim 119:93: "I will never forget thy PRECEPTS: for with them thou hast given me LIFE." Mishlei 13:14: "The LAW of the wise is a fountain of LIFE, to depart from the snares of death." Mishlei 3:1 - 2: "My son, forget not my LAW; but let thine heart KEEP my commandments: for length of days and long LIFE, and peace, shall they add to thee." Mizmor 119:17: "Deal bountifully with thy servant, that I may LIVE, and KEEP thy WORD." Mizmor 119:144: "The righteousness of thy testimonies is everlasting; give me UNDERSTANDING,
  12. 12. and I shall LIVE." Mizmor 119:24 - 32: "Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors. My soul clings to the dust; give me LIFE according to your WORD. I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me; teach me THY STATUTES. Make me to understand the WAY of THY PRECEPTS;so shall I talk of thy wondrous works. My soul melteth for heaviness; strengthen thou me according to thy WORD. Remove from me the way of lying, and grant me thy LAW graciously. I have chosen the way of TRUTH; thine ORDINANCES have I laid before me. I have clung to thy TESTIMONIES; O YHWH, put me not to shame. I will run the WAY of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart." Here we have seen that life is the laws, precepts, ordinances, statutes, words, and teaching of YHWH. It is YHWH Himself. It is not some lofty, ambiguous term left open to be spiritualized away into some meaningless chasm. When Yëshuå, who is Elohiym, uses these words, He is using them in the same way He has always usedthem. This is precisely what was to be looked for in discerning the coming Mashiach. If He did not speak according to the law and the testimony, then there was no light (Torah) in Him Yeshayahu 8:20 To ha Torah and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them.So now lets look at some ways in which Yëshuå used this term. Remember, the term life is the Word of Elohiym. Yochanan 6:63:"It is the Ruakh that gives LIFE; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are Ruakh and they are LIFE." Yochanan 1:4: "In him was LIFE and the LIFE was the light of men." Acts 2:28: "Thou hast made know to me the ways of LIFE; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance." 1 Yochanan 1:1:"That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen withour eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the WORD OF LIFE." Yochanan 14:6: "Yëshuå said unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the LIFE: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." Colossians 3:4: "When Yëshuå, who is our LIFE, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory."
  13. 13. Yochanan 5:24: "Verily, verily, I say to you, He that heareth my WORD, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting LIFE, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to LIFE." The pattern of Yahs will becomes obvious. He is constantly drawing us back to His ways, His light, His life. Elohiyms words, when obeyed, produces life and freedom. The concept of life in Hebraic thought is not some symbolic utopia. When Yëshuå said that He came to give us life and to give it more abundantly, He was referring to the POWER of His words when put into action. If, as Set Apart Believers, we really do believe that Yëshuå is Elohiym, then we have to come to terms with the fact that Yëshuås words are Elohiyms words, and Yëshuå the Mashiach spoke according to the law and the testimony. Eloneinu Yëshuå HaMeshiakh In His Name His servant and yours Shalom in Righteousness by the GRACE of YHWH keiYAH nätzräyaremember me and pray for me that YHWH will be gracious unto me and be merciful unto my sins which i have sinned against him.
