Jesus is the Messiah

January 18, 2014

But we don’t see Him. And He is the divine Messiah. There’s no other Name in heaven and on earth which come come to us to know and to understand through which we may come to the everlasting Father who created us in His image. We are lost, but found by Him. And He is the only one true God.Believe (1)

The problem is that we don’t see Him. We are a people who are so far off, so far deviated from the right path and so blinded by the time passes by for the last tens of decades, that we lost our sight completely. Although we think we see. We do see a lot of things literary, more than in the past, but we don’t have the ability to see the things spiritual, at least not with the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit. We are so defiled in our society that you might say there’s no way back. But fortunately there is a way. Personaly now, when it is the time (Ps.95), but isn’t it now, then it will be in the future, at least for Gods people. Gods promises will endure time until it is His time to act. And that’s we are heading to. “He saw that there was no [good] man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his own arm brought salvation to him; and his righteousness, it upheld him.” (Is.59:16) We all failed, but God doesn’t fail.

You might ask whether this is a special confession, after all, thousands say Jesus is the divine Messiah, but I would say: Yes, this is a very special confession! I was challenged by Judaism and still am, and now I see that I as a church man (and stick to Hebrew Movement), I came to the understanding that we are ALL the same. Orthodox believing Jews and orthodox Christian gentiles. We are the same in what? In that we tend to reject our own very Redeemer. In fact we are rejecting God. The last year I came as far as that I have to confess that I myself was the cause of the crucifiction of the Messiah, the One who would come to my salvation. He is indeed the Sacrifice which I’m liable to. And He is indeed the greatest Miracle full of graciousness and forgiveness. How is that possible? Why on earth did He choose me to share His love and His word and to make me a child of Him? I was lost, but now I’m found. I’m wondering myself constantly about this.

For years I read the phrase “and they will look to me whom they have pierced” as it would apply for the Jews. Now I understand that I am also like the Jew. Yes, I believe that I will confess the same as what the Jews will confess when that blessed time will come that the Deliverer comes forth of Zion and when we get rid off sins because of that very confession that WE have rejected Him. (Is.53) Maybe it’s hard to understand, but for some it may be easy and even welcome to hear.

“Salvation be to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” (Rev.7:10)

Yeshua guilty?

March 24, 2010

I don’t see in the NT writings that Yeshua was hold guilty by the Sanhedrin, the Jewish court.

When Yeshua was at Caiaphas the high priest there were only many false witnesses. And although the chief priests and the whole council sought false witness against Jesus (Math.26:59), that they might put him to death, there was no valid accusing to be found and they didn’t find anything.  (Math.26:59, Mark 14:55) They couldn’t find two witnesses which was necessary to judge him according to the Torah. Also the two who said that Yeshua had said he would destroy the temple and built it in three days, didn’t agree together. (Mark 14:59) The high priest however, asked him if he would say something about what he was alleged for, but he said nothing. Just and only when the high priest asked: הוא המשיח בן המברך  are you the Messiah the son of the Blessed? Then Yeshua answered: אני הוא   I am. And right then he promised the court that they shall see the Son of man sitting at the right hand of Power, and coming with the clouds of heaven. (Mark 14:62)

That was the reason why he was brought to Pilate, they couldn’t find him guilty according to the Torah, but they find him guilty because he said to be the Messiah. Because he was the Messiah he was sentenced to dead. The Sanhedrin couldn’t find another reason than this one: Because he was the Messiah.

The same is said from Pilate. He found no guilt in him. (John 18:38) But as is said to the Sanhedrin that he was the Messiah, so Yeshua said to the Roman court that he was the King. (John 18:37)

After all he was sentenced to dead because of two reasons: he was the Messiah for the Jews and he was the King for the Roman world. The Jews [1] argued for their own: We have a law, and by that law he ought to die, because he made himself the Son of God. (John 19:7) And the Jews argued for Pilate: Every one that maketh himself a king speaketh against Caesar. (John 19:12)

So in fact I didn’t find any text that reads that Yeshua was guilty. What do you think?

[1] Said by the public Jews who were outside the Roman court. (John 18:26) Not said by the Sanhedrin, at least not officially. Otherwise they didn’t need the Roman court because they were allowed to stone him according to the Torah. (Lev.24:16)
