Whom do you say He is?

    SirDentposted 6 years ago

    Many have different perspectives of Jesus and who He really is and what His message is. I am asking for your opinion on who He is.

    Myself I believe He is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. I believe he was the perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world and that through Him all can be saved.

      He is a human who understood his source to be the Light or god, an enlightened or awakened one. A messenger or prophet who spread knowledge of the light like others have before and after him.

        Jesus couldn't have been just a prophet, he claimed to be the Son of God, if he wasn't the Son of God he would've commited blasphemy and could not claim to even be a prophet.

      Hi friend SirDent

      I don’t agree with you on following points:

      1.     Jesus was never a literal Son of God.

      2.    He did not die on the Cross; so Jesus rejected this “Christian” concept invented by Paul and the Church.

      3.    Jesus’ message was to believe in ONE GOD; he never gave the message of trinity.

      4.    Only repentance of the sinner before the Creator- God Allah YHWH; and resolve not do the sin in future, could save the sinner if God Allah YHWH accepts the prayer on His sole discretion and forgives the sinner.

      I love Jesus and Mary as I do love Moses and him mother as mentioned in Quran.

      Thanks

        You have no idea what the lamb of god is all about! In the OT the jewish people sacrificed lambs, who are a symbol of innocence and purity in their looks and behavior. Ever see a lamb close up and how his eyes just faithfully look at you as you shear it. So trusting, etc.
        The OT testament was a type and foreshadowing of the NT, the spirit of the law!
        John the baptist said "behold the lamb of god". Jesus needed to be sacrificed to give opportunity to the world to be forgiven of sin. He became the sin sacrifice. He wept tears in the garden before his betrayal because he knew he would give up the ghost as per the will of the father.
        To say that jesus was not that lamb of god is sacrilege and needs a good rebuking. God is not a liar. Jesus was most certainly that lamb of god.
        I could quote you scripture but im not going to.
        I have spent enough time on this lie as it is.

          SirDent   I didn't intend to sound snooty nor direct my coment towards anyone.
             Just seems that we often argue about some things that are not that important while neglecting things of greater importance.
             Mankind have been adding mandates to the word of God for so long that it is difficult for us to discern between what is really of God and things that are of Man.  ??

              Don't intend to seem like I'm argueing either.
              I agree that it is important to know who Jesus is. 

                 But when we are having a one on one relationship with him, walking with him, I don't think that names are of great importance to him.Cause he has chosen to walk with us He knows who we are talking to when we are with him.
                  We do have to be clear As to his name when talking to others that they are not confused as to whom we are refering to.

              SirDent, I admire you for seeking who Jesus really is. To everyone, name is very important, we will do all measure to protect a name, in all sense of the word. You don't let anyone to tarnish your name.

              About Jesus,

              Luke 3:21 When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as He was praying, heaven was opened 22 and the Holy Spirit descended on Him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven “You are my Son whom I love; with You I am well pleased”

              God says,He is my son, and well pleased to Jesus.

              Jesus or Christ is son of God.

              So don't pick on Him or blemish His name as you does not like others pick on your son.

              Matthew 20:28  just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.”

              He, Jesus Christ is the total ransom for the forgiveness of sin of many, not everybody.

                No.  He IS the ransom for the sin of everyone.
                He didn't die just for a few, or even "many", but everyone.

                Few may choose Him, but the act has been accomplished and the offer is there.

            Indeed, many familiar spirits.
            Blasphemy -gee where have I heard that before- lol.

            As for books: you are to learn FROM the Spirit of Truth, not doctrines made up by man. Still you cling to every letter, every word as if it was gospel truth, when the Gospel of Truth warned you not to look at it so. The Scribes and teachers of the Law for thousands of years prove that.
            Foolishness indeed.

            Enoch had no bible nor did Job, Elijah, Abram and many more.
            Throw away your resume, it is killing you (plural).
            Elohim doesn't need nor care about it.

            Perhaps I am reading all your posts incorrectly, but it appears your banter against the MANY people in here -apart from myself- shows only a need to be puffed up, self-righteous and correct. Everyone agreeing with your interpretation.

          Adam and Jesus were both evolved from dust very naturally. Dust gets mould up when wet;it means man can progress.The pecularity of Adam and Jesus was that they attained highest status of receiving Message from the Creator- God Allah YHWH for their people for ethical, moral and spiritual progress.

                even still, He IS flesh and bone -though unlike the first, He was manifest THROUGH birth, that from all points shared our likeness and became better than the first Adam, spotless and able to make that sacrifice, intercession, on our behalf. So that when that time came to fulfill the promise, in all points remove those things -body, mind and spirit, that keep us from the Grace (manifest glory) of the Father. So he claimed the birthright -both of law and prophecy- completing the work and ascending to the Fathers hand.
                Now we, through His Testimony & the word -spoken and taught to us by the Spirit sent to teach us, can freely and without fear enter the Holy of Holies, the Mercy Seat, the Throne of Grace, with boldness and confidence/assurance of faith.

                Indeed, if our adversary had access to charge against us, the works of sin, how much more access has been granted to us by Him to that perfect Place.

            He is dressed in a robe dyed by dipping in blood, and the title by which He is called is The Word of God.

              This is speaking of Christ not God...
              Christ came in his Father's name..He called himself by his father's name..his real earthly name was Immanuel. He was called YAHshua

              He is the Word because he was created by the spoken word of God and because he lived by the word and deserved to be given that honor.

              Now if you, like the others think God and Christ are the same person....I see what you are trying to say..however they are not the same.

              Matthew 1:23
              Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel

              John 5:43
              I have come in my Father's name, and you do not accept me; but if someone else comes in his own name, you will accept him. ...

              In English..I have come in my Father's name (YAH) and you do not accept me; but if I had come in my own name Immanuel, you would have accepted me.

                hello....

                "The Father and I are one", he said.

                He is the lamb slain from the foundation of the world.
                The worlds were framed/founded by the word of Elohim.
                The Word became flesh...yahda, yahda, yahda.

                Amazing how people are so caught up in title-ship, like used car dealers. Let it go already.If you need to argue the truth, you don't understand the truth. { You meaning plural believers in Him, not Deborah 'Sexton' na mean? }.

                Arguing the truth is called religion. see ya soon.

                  He meant in one accord. I have already given many verses stating he was not God.

                  The Word became flesh means that He was not formed from dust..but by the spoken word of God..Plus he completely accepted and acted in accordance with God's word.

                  Amazing?

                  Again:

                  Did Jesus make such statements regarding his status, the words, the will and the power he used ?

                  WORDS

                  "Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine is not Mine, but His
                  who sent Me." [John 7:16]

                  "He who does not love Me does not keep My words; and the word
                  which you hear is not Mine but the Father's who sent Me." [John 14:24]

                  "For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who
                  sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak." [John 12:49]

                  WILL

                  "Jesus said to them, "My food is to do the will of him who sent
                  me, and to accomplish his work." [John 4:34]

                  "For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but
                  the will of Him who sent Me." [John 6:38]

                  "saying, "Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me;
                  nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done." [Luke 22:42]

                  POWER

                  " I can of Myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment
                  is righteous, because I do not seek My own will but the will of the
                  Father who sent Me." [John 5:30]

                  "I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master,
                  nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him." [John 13:16]

                  "You heard me say, `I am going away and I am coming back to you.' If you
                  loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I." [John 14:28]

                  "Jesus said to them, "If God were your Father, you would love me,
                  for I proceeded and came forth from God; I came not of my own accord,
                  but he sent me." [ John 8:42]

                  "To sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for
                  those for whom it has been prepared by my Father" [Matthew 20:23]

                  KNOWLEDGE

                  "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in
                  heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father." [Mr 13:32]

                  "But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of
                  heaven, but My Father only." [Mt 24:36]

                  "So Jesus answered them, "My teaching is not mine, but his who
                  sent me" [John 7:16]

                  STATUS

                  "Not everyone who says to Me, 'Lord, Lord,' shall enter the
                  kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven." [Mt 7:21]

                  "And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of
                  me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape. [John 5:37]

                  "And Jesus said to him, "Why do you call me good? No one is good
                  but God alone." [Mr 10:18]

                  "And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges." [John 8:50]

                  Some Christians, (not all) claim that Jesus _implied_ that he was God, from the above verses, we see that Jesus denied being God, it now leaves the Christians who believe Jesus is God to provide just one single verse in the Bible where Jesus says "I am God" there is no such verse, the God of Abraham in the Old Testament stated "I am God" over 200 times, yet oddly Jesus never uttered those three words once in the Gospel, so we see from the many quotes above, that the House did not belong to Jesus, it belonged to the One who Sent him.

                  These are not my opinions but just some of the views taken directly from the scriptutres that clearly show that Jesus and God are different they ARE NOT one and the same. (I have given references so you can check them up for yourself)
                  According to the words of Jesus himself in John 17:3 God is one and only and Jesus is his messenger “that they might know THEE the ONLY TRUE GOD, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”
                  Jesus is the one who prayed and God is the one Jesus prayed to. This is according to Matthew 14:23, 19:13, 26:39, 27:46, 26:42-44 and Luke 3:21, 5:16, 6:12, 9:18, 9:28, 11:1-4, 22:41 and John 14:16, 17:1, 17:9, 17:11, 17:15
                  According to Matthew 26:39, John 5:30 and John 6:38 they have different wills so they must be distinct and separate.
                  According to Mark 16:19 and Luke 22:69 Jesus sat at the right hand of God - two separate beings sitting next to each other
                  Jesus was a prophet (Luke 7:16, Luke 13:33, Luke 24:19 and John 4:19) but God wasn’t.
                  Jesus gave thanks to God according to Luke 10:21, John 6:11 and John 11:41-42
                  According to Luke 23:46 Jesus commended his spirit to God
                  Jesus said that the Father (God) is greater than him - John 14:28
                  Jesus was helpless not God - John 5:19, John 5:30, John 7:28, John 8:28
                  Jesus said he was not the provider (John 6:32) whereas God is
                  Jesus said his words were not his (John 7:16, John 12:49, John 14:24, and John 17:14) God’s clearly are.
                  Jesus said he did not come of himself (John 8:42) but God does everything of Himself
                  Jesus said the Father (God) is greater than all - John 10:29
                  Jesus followed commands (John 14:31 and 15:10) God doesn’t.
                  Jesus said he had a god - John 20:17. God doesn’t
                  Jesus was "a man approved of God." - Acts 2:22
                  According to HQ 4:171 “The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a messenger of God, and His word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him.”

                  ********
                  Jesus has a creation. Colossians 1:15 "He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation". Fistborn means exactly what it say's. Firstborn, this meas he has a begining and was created. Almighty God has no creation, but Jesus does.

                  ****************
                  1 Timothy 2:5 says: For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

    Miss Sexton, I have repeated stated, in so many WORDS, you are preaching to the choir.
    THE Word is Him and all things made through Him; without Him nothing was made that exists in all the universe. He is the universe and all things in it. All things framed by Him.

    The Word of Elohim AND the Testimony of the second adam -Y`shua moshiach IS the Spirit of enigma, revealed.

    rhema, imrah. logos.

    The manifest -physic/optic- will of Love was this man called 'Y`shua'. The ~watch closely~ SECOND Adam. Who was the first? Yup, but sin found him. Who was the second, the One without sin.

    He IS "I AM". Mind, body, spirit. Is that so difficult to understand? Men separate Him to cause trouble.

          Some people do not agree when I say that I believe that sometimes Jesus would be talking to his disciples,pertaining to them only and not to every believer from them until the end of the world.
               I can see in my mind Jesus standing in front of his disciples (Whom he knew and trusted) When "YOU" ask any thing in my name.   The disciples were not telling anyone else that when they believe and ask in his name.....; Jesus was speaking to his disciples only.
               When we read any story we have to pay attention to who is talking to who.  Bible stories are no different.

    just not to omit this:

    'what ever you ask in my name i will give to you" correct?
    "His name IS: the Word of Elohim".

    Should you perceive the Word is limited to books, collected or omitted, you might want to reconsider your position.
    No one can enter the Fathers kingdom, without going through the Word. No one. This is the Name by which all mankind is saved. That two-edged sword, divides your mind from your spirit, even bone from marrow, the one that knows all your thoughts and intentions of your heart. The one that gives breath to your mortal body, His Spirit.
    Names are for men/women of the flesh.
    You are to walk in Spirit. not just any familiar spirit, but The Spirit.

    So, enough with the name it & claim notions, yes?
    All things have passed away; all thing He made new.

        Indeed. The Word always was and is.
        The truth of our purpose is evident by a few before Him, by Him (in amazing expression) and a few after.

        So, when people go searching from book to book, letter to letter, orange grove to Prayer Mountain in-search-of, miss the entire point. Using his 'name' is pointless; his 'namesake' powerful. Birthright is more potent than calling a brother on the phone...

      Job 9:32  For he is not a man, as I am, that I should answer him, and we should come together in judgment.

      Job 9:33  Neither is there any daysman betwixt us, that might lay his hand upon us both.

    Yes I do understand this, however I also know we have to try.


    To say we do not need to know God's name is incorrect.
    For those who think to know the name isn't important, reveals they don't know truth.
    John  17: 11, 12, 26

    We should be sanctified in the truth and Prasie HIM by HIS name, Yah (John ch.17).

    Yah Shua when he spoke the name of His Father Yah. John Ch. 17:6 reveals the very nature of salvation in Messiah's prayer: "I have manifested Thy name...". Again in John Ch. 17:11 " ... Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are".

      Taking a stab at this ... first understand that English is my primary Language and not Greek, Aramaic or Hebrew.

      The Apostle John was not writing to English speakers or Western pseudo-scholars (like myself) ... he was writing primarily to Hellenized Jews.  His audience was familiar with Greek culture and philosophy.

      I also understand that fine concepts get lost in translation sometimes, so I do my best to chase down the original language, as an amateur.

      The Greek word that the Apostle John used is LOGOS ... which is often translated "Word" in English.  Logos is also where we get
      the English word "Logic" ... it is more than a spoken sound with meaning ... it is the meaning.  If memory serves me correctly, John is referring to a cultural impacted by the philosopher Heraclitus.

      Basically, what John is explaining is that God and the Christ and the Christ who became human are united in the oneness of being "the first Cause" and the reason/ meaning/ purpose / central idea of all of creation from the beginning of time.

      That's what I understand by what is translated to English as "word".

    Once you know how-to, you have to go and make the dish -the evidence of that recipe. The stuff you hope for is the ingredients to make the dish. The evidence is the finished product.

    He is the Son of God. He was made the Son by the Father (not part of some trinity) and created all there is through the Father.  He volunteered to empty Himself to become a human, where He fullfilled several laws and prophesies of the OT. This includes the Feast of Tabernacles which takes place at the end of the fall harvest.  This is in fact the largest of the two harvests (well, three, because Christ is the First of the firstfruits).  The ultimate fullfillment of all of this will take place in the next age.  The second harvest is when the many lost will finally be saved. 

    So, in other words, Christ came to reveil the Father, (wasn't known in the OT), to give His word to those few He was given by the Father (sorry, no hellers in that list), and to die so that "all" would be forgiven of their sins and ultimately "all" will be saved. 

    It's really quite simple:
    The reason that so few people understand God's word is because only a few are given the holy spirit to understand and love His truths.  Many think they understand but few do.  Hope remains though.  All will eventually be brought to the truth and saved.  But the hellers will have a hell of a time in the Lake of "God's" Fire.

      Revelation10:4 When the seven peals of thunder had spoken, I was about to write; and I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Seal up the things which the seven peals of thunder have spoken and do not write them.” 5 Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land lifted up his right hand to heaven,

      Tradition tells us that one of Luke's primary sources was Mary, the Mother of Jesus.

      The three "synoptic" gospels, Matthew, Mark and Luke are presumed to have been based on a theoretical single manuscript known to academics as "Q".  This theory is based on the academic discipline known as textual criticism.

      "Q" is presumed to have been the "notes" that were written in Aramaic. As the Apostles began to die, the "Q" notes were formalized into the Greek manuscripts for distribution to a largely Greek speaking audience.

      Each of the Gospel writers are presumed to have interviews eye-witnesses to "fill in" the parts not in "Q". (Thus we believe that Luke interviews Mary.)

      Unlike Matthew, Mark and Luke, John most likely dictated his experiences directly to a Greek speaking scribe, though he also likely had access to this "Q" document and used it to refresh his memory.

        It is never late to learn anything. If you intended to have some education; then be steadfast, you will definitely learn many new and meaningful things. Please come up with your reason and arguments instead of getting angry.

        I had written here, maybe you have missed it that Luke was not written when Jesus was there in his ministry. So, luke has just written from hearsay. Mary went with Jesus; so it is wrong to say that he learnt from Mary.

        Now be bold enough and come with reason; maybe you also win; as I don't write to win but to understand.

        With humility you will learn; in isolation , nothing.

    I believe that there is necesity to understand prophesy before  any signifigant amount of truth can be found.

       Yes Jesus was the Messiah that the society of Religious were expecting.
       They did not recognize him upon his first advent.
       And upon his second coming there was no one left afterwards  that saw him to tell the story.
       Yes the Messiah died for our sins,Yes there are a few of his teachings that were included in the cannon.
       But for the bulk of "Truth" we must first PROPERLY understand prophesy.
       
       If I could convince anyone of any one thing; this would be it.
        Argue about all of the other stuff all ya want to but it isn't going to get you anywhere until you understand the prophesy.

    It is meaningless to state that Jesus was Word, meaning he was a god.

    Quran has clarified this mistake of the NTBible writers.
    The Creator-God Allah YHWH made an exception for natural conception of Jesus to Mary without touching her of any man.

    This was the word “Be”; denoting a special commandment and with this commandment Jesus was born of Mary.

    Otherwise, it has no other reasonable meaning.

    For those using the sentence

    Look at ...
    Purple People Eater

    Is It
    Purple, people eater
    or
    Purple people, eater.?

    Christ was saying God and his law/words existed before Abraham, not that he was God.

    So was the thing that ate people purple in color

    did the eater eat purple people?

      Taking your example ... we know from the song he ate purple people.  It's a contextual clue. "Purple people eater, what's your line?"  He said, "Eating Purple People and it sure is fine".

      In the same vein it is appropriate to look at the context within which Yeshua made that statement.

      From an examination of John 8 we can see that:
      1. He was at the temple grounds teaching.
      2. His opponents were ridiculing him.
      3. He claimed God was his Father and that Abraham wanted to see him on earth.
      4. His opponents mocked him for claiming to have seen Abraham.
      5. He made the statement "Before Abraham was ... " etc.
      6. They threatened to stone him for that comment.
      7. He left the temple grounds.


      This still leaves the interpretation of the sentence open, because it is so deep but it does help us see more than just one verse.

        Don't forget Verse 27
        "They understood not that he spake to them of the Father."

        Christ spoke of God's promise to Abraham.
        Abraham saw Christ by faith in what God said.

        Abraham never received any inheritance in the land. The place where he buried Sarah was the only piece of ground he ever owned, and he bought that from Ephron, even though Ephron offered to give it to him. God promised great blessings to Abraham, including an inheritance of land. But he never received those promises in his lifetime. Yet Abraham believed that God keeps His promises, and as a result he sojourned as a stranger in the promised land.

            Hebrews 11:
            8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
            9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the same promise:

        Yahshua was the promise Abraham saw through faith in God's word
        Acts 13.
        32. And we declare unto you glad tidings, how that the promise which was made unto the fathers

          Exactly right, verse 26 said "He sent me to the world" and verse 27 said they didn't realize that he was saying that the Father sent him to the world.

          One of the unintended consequences of adding chapters and verses is that the translators often use them as the punctuation marks you speak of.  (Rightly or wrongly).

          This leads to an additional problem you've observed elsewhere, that of using single verses around which to build incomplete doctrines.

    Jesus, the Son of the living God. From my understanding, the Bible,(which I believe), teaches this: God the Father is a spirit, an invisible spirit. Jesus was the FIRST AND ONLY THING CREATED DIRECTLY BY GOD THE FATHER! That is why He is the only beggotten of the Father. He is the express image of of God the Father. Yawaeh created Jesus in spirit, including everything within Himself and putting it in Jesus. This makes Jesus the Light. Now we can see what God looks like, not physically, but spiritually. Everything else was created by Jesus, for Jesus, and through Jesus. In Genesis as it speaks of the creation of man in this way,"Let US creat man in OUR image". Jesus existed in the beginning because He was the beginning of creation.

          Since you cannot quote anything from the bible, I'll give you one. This is also the basis of some religion that teaches Christ is God.

          John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

          To understand this quickly, for the sake of discussion, change "word" with "plan"

          In the beginning was the plan, and the plan was with God, and the plan was God.

          The last part does not mean the the plan was actually God It only want to say that If God plan it, it will come to fruition. The word God in the last part was used as an adjective. It's just like this"Time is gold"

          Now if you sticked to your belief that son of God is God, imagine what is going to happen.

          John 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

          There would become so many gods.

    The first Man Adam was formed from the ground (or red dirt)

    God created Christ the Second Man Adam through the spoken word.

    They were first creations because they were created differently.

    Christ lived by every word of God. He obeyed and pleased God.

    However in Isaiah 7:15-17 it says that the Child Yahshua had to learn to refuse the evil, and choose the good

            Your statement doesn't make sense.
            First Christ's death is not in vain regardless of what a human does. He has ascended and is with God because he did what he was sent to do. How can that be in vain? It could only become in vain to each person..not to him.

            Plus take a look here..it does take some hard work..

            Matthew 24:13 "But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved"

            Do you think you are already saved?

            You still didn't answer my question..Can people continue to kill, steal etc?

      Exactly..Love is the fulfilling of the law. Christ fulfilled the law  through love..If we love ourselves and others, we don't kill, steal, etc. He didn't come to do away with the law, but to show us how we can keep it.
      Yes, the commandments are God's law..but we keep these through love not because we have to.

      No one I know can say they are Christian. The Ego doesn't let people love.
      The lack of faith is at fault too.
      If we have faith that God will provide, we won't steal. If we have faith that God will take care of our enemies, we won't kill.

    #2. Christian doctrine -that certainly seems to explain a lot.
    Indeed, many familiar spirits.
    #3. Blasphemy -gee where have I heard that before- lol.

    #4. As for books: you are to learn FROM the Spirit of Truth, not doctrines made up by man. Still you cling to every letter, every word as if it was gospel truth, when the Gospel of Truth
    #5. warned you not to look at it so. The Scribes and teachers of the Law for thousands of years prove that.
    #6. Foolishness indeed.

    #7. Enoch had no bible nor did Job, Elijah, Abram and many more.
    Throw away your resume, it is killing you (plural).
    #8. Elohim doesn't need nor care about it.

    Perhaps I am reading all your posts incorrectly, but it appears

    ________________________________________________________________
    My answers:

    #1. That you don't have to keep God's law. Yet Yahshua taught you do. He showed us how..through love. God said his law is forever and ever.
    #2. This is a personal attack. You might want to check yourself and your own demons.
    #3. From Scripture. Please note your life over the next month or two.
    #4. Stating we are to use God's name YAH. and keep his law through love is not clinging to every word..However you are confused in this teaching.
    #5. Wrong. The Pharisees kept the law and hated others which counted against them. Keeping the law without love is not what I was saying. Again you have no understanding. Love fulfills the law because love keeps us from doing anything to hurt another. But your eyes are closed to truth so how would you know.  No one ever taught to not keep the law. As a metter of fact..Yahshua expounded on the law in more details.
    And..you WARNED me?! Better warn yourself.
    #6. Yes you are.
    #7. Enoch, Elijah and Abraham communicated directly with God.  You don't.
    #8. You don't know what Yah wants or what is the mind of Yah. You exalt yourself to the throne of God by saying you do know.
    #9. Who's bantering against the many. You always have your say..I'm allowed to do that too. Maybe there is one person who would like to know what I have to say..maybe it is meant to be for someone and you are acting the adversary to stop it. Oh and speaking of familiar spirits. . .
    #10. I'm not asking for anyone to agree with me..just not to be abusive as you are…Careful….
    #11. That's between them and me so mind your own business. I've told you many times, if you don't like what I say, as long as I am not speaking to you, don't read it.

              Jesus did many things simply for the sake of the hearing of those around Him.
              The resurrection of Lazarus, for one.
              Read that, and the surrounding text.
              Jesus had the power to do whatever He wanted to do.  He specifically says in those passages that He "said it" for the sake of those nearby, so that they would have an example of praying to the Father.
              Humans are so silly and easily-misled by others who claim to be "gods", etc., that Jesus didn't WANT anyone to be misled by his human form.   He was God in the flesh....and that fleshly part was what the human eye could see while He walked the earth.   No wonder He kept trying to make the disciples see the Spiritual side of things,  while having to consider their human eye in the flesh.  It is Spirit to spirit that sets man free of fleshly temptation.  God is Spirit.  Jesus is Spirit.  Jesus challenged everyone, including us now, to walk in the Spirit, not the flesh, while at the same time recognizing God for Who He is.   And who WE are not.....

      For He said to Moses, I AM.
      Not a god or the god, but the All In All.
      The law came to Moses, so that the people would understand that law cannot make them righteous, to keep them until Faith manifest -in the man Y`shua Moshiach.
      Moses did not seek the Law, for he had no knowledge of it until he witnessed the rumbling on the mountain and saw the Spirit's fire afar off.
      The Spirit drew him to the mountain and there spoke to him first and then gave him the Law, then wrote the law. Even after Moses broke the law upon the back of the idol, Elohim restored the law.
      Why? Because might and power, good works or ritual cannot make one righteous. Only the Spirit of Truth, which is the Word.

      And also, where is the Mercy Seat, the Throne of Grace?
      Indeed it is above the Law. The cherubs bow there heads to it for they are servants of Grace and Mercy.

      What was sealed in the ark? The tablets, The rod, The manna. So then, Grace -above and apart from the Law is greater than the Law. For where there is law, there is lawlessness and sin.
      But Grace is still greater.

      Should you keep the Prophecy -that is the Word of Elohim and Testimony of Y`shua Moshiach in the flesh - then Grace is your dwelling place and the law has no power over you -is fulfilled in you. Else you remain a slave to the law and all its parts.

    The word is God's law..God is the word and therefore the law..God was not done away with.

    Matthew 5:17-48
    17. Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
    18. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
    19. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
    48. Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.

    Luke 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.

    49. For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
    50. And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.

    Acts 6:13
    And set up false witnesses, which said, This man ceaseth not to speak blasphemous words against this holy place, and the law:

    Acts 28:23
    And when they had appointed him a day, there came many to him into his lodging; to whom he expounded and testified the kingdom of God, persuading them concerning Jesus, both out of the law of Moses, and out of the prophets, from morning till evening.

    Romans 2:13
    (For not the hearers of the law are just before God, but the doers of the law shall be justified.

    Romans 3:31
    Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.

    Romans 7:12 Wherefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy, and just, and good.

    Romans 7:22 For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

    Romans 7:25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.

      1 Corinthians 1:21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.

    Hi friend willie28

    Please be sure Jesus won't come physically; he had come in the years 1835-1908, the same way as Elijah had come again.

    Thanks

      There's only one thing I agree with you on so far...
      that Jesus won't come again physically.

      But for sure He didn't come in the 19th century! LOL

          I get it---you're an Islamist, and apparently with a succession of "prophets".......similar to Catholicism's Popes?!
          Sorry, but those articles are not only just imaginative jibberish, but they're totally against what the Bible says will happen at the second coming of the Messiah.

      jesus is who, he is...
      jesus is a human
      jesus is a prophet
      jesus is a massiah
      jesus is a loving man
      jesus is a great creation.

      thats all abt him..
      he's not God
      he's not son of God
      he's not the father of ur people

      can u worship a man? a man who is among u? a man who do samething likeu people do?

      God dont use to eat but jesus did.
      God didn't use to walk but he did
      God didn't use to talk people but he did..

      So now is he a God?
