He has risen from the dead. Those who truly understand the significance of those six words will have their lives changed forever. The Elect shall rise again in the resurrection at the last day because our Messiah has risen from the dead (John 11:24).
Rom 6:4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ is risen from the dead on account of he is the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life
Messiah the Savior answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up again (John 2:19, 21).
It is important to understand that Messiah the Savior indeed raised Himself from the dead. Very few of Yahweh’s Saint’s were given the power to raise others from the dead, and none could raise themselves from the dead. This was a miracle that only Yahweh could perform.
John 10:18 No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself, I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again…
Messiah had no beginning and will have no end, and He is the image or physical manifestation of Yahweh (John 8:58, Rev 1:8).
Yahweh is the name of the one that created the Heavens and the Earth. The title of Lord, does not represent the Glorious name of Yahweh, and must be avoided.
Isaiah 45:21 Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time, who hath told it from that time, have not I Yahweh? There is no other God besides me a just God and Savior; there is none but me
Also, Messiah does not sit at the right hand of God; He is the right hand or power of Yahweh. The child who was born of a virgin and called the everlasting Father, did not become sin for us – that is a ludicrous statement of deceit. God can not become sin, nor can He become a curse for us (Isa 9:6, Gal 3:13).
Yahweh is a Spirit and Messiah the Savior is the image thereof (John 4:24, Col 1:15).
Messiah has risen from the dead
Messiah answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up (John 2:19).
Yahweh did not die in that Yahweh is a Spirit. Yahweh allowed the fleshly temple that He created to become a sacrifice for the sins of His people.
Under the first Covenant that Messiah established, there was only a temporary covering for sin. But He has risen from the dead to take away our sins.
Messiah (who is without sin) hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, putting an end to the curse for us (1 John 3:5, Heb 4:15, Gal 3:13).
Our Messiah appeared (or was manifest in the flesh) to put away, (or abolish) sin by the sacrifice of himself (2 Tim 2:15). He did not become sin for us, as he was sinless by his very nature.
Heb 8:7 For if that first covenant had been faultless, then should no place have been sought for the second
Without the risen Savior all of those who were under the Old Testament Covenant would die in their sins. But He has risen from the dead to take away the penalty of sin for them as well.
Those who attempt to mix the New Covenant Gospel that has the power to take away sins completely, with that of the Old covenant that did not, do not understand the Gospel of Yahweh.
Heb 8:9 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt; because they continued not in my covenant, and I regarded them not, saith Yahweh
Messiah would establish a New Covenant that would supersede the covenant that He made with those who He led out of the land of Egypt (Heb 8:6-13). He has risen from the dead to fulfill the promise made to the Old and New Testament Saints alike; all who call upon the name of Yahweh, are the true Israel of God.
Heb 8:13 In that he saith, A new covenant, he hath made the first old. Now that which decayeth and waxeth old is ready to vanish away
The New Covenant is received by those that have the Spirit of Yahweh dwelling within them. Also, this New Covenant is unto eternal life. Messiah the Savior who is Yahweh manifest in the flesh, provided the means by which His faithful would be able to escape the Law of sin unto death (Rom 8:2, John 14:17, 26, 16:13).
He Is Risen – HalleluYah
The consequences of our sins, is death and Yahweh’s wrath. However the free gift or deliverance for that penalty is also from Yahweh, which is eternal life available through our Savior and Messiah who is the very image of Yahweh (Psa 6:4, 116:4, Eze 7:19, Romans 5:15-20, 6:23, 2 Cor 4:4, Col 1:15).
That as sin hath reigned unto death, even so might grace reign through righteousness unto eternal life through Yahweh our Messiah (Rom 5:21).
This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith Yahweh I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them (Heb 10:16, Jer 31:33-34).
Apart from the New Covenant of Messiah the Savior who is the Glory of Yahweh, we are alienated from the citizenship of the Israel of God (John 4:24, 14:9, Eph 2:12, Rom 9:6, Col 1:15, Gal 6:16, Heb 1:3, 9:15).
At the second gathering of the true Israel of God, all of the children of Yahweh will rejoice in their Savior.
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved
We will conclude this study with an example of the conspiracy against the Messiah, that contradicts what He actually declared (John 2:19, 10:18).
Romans 8:11 But <G1161> if <G1487> the Spirit <G4151> of him that raised up <G1453> Jesus <G2424> from <G1537> the dead <G3498> dwell <G3611> in <G1722> you <G5213>, he that raised up <G1453> Christ <G5547> from <G1537> the dead <G3498> shall <G2227> <G0> also <G2532> quicken <G2227> your <G5216> mortal <G2349> bodies <G4983> by <G1223> his <G846> Spirit <G4151> that dwelleth <G1774> <G1774> in <G1722> you <G5213>
And if the Spirit of Messiah who is risen from the dead dwells in you, Messiah who is risen from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by His Spirit that dwells in you (Romans 8:11).
- If the one they call Christ (who is actually called the Messiah), is God, He did not need another God to raise Himself from the dead.
- My God and Savior who is called the Messiah, does not sit at the right hand of another God.
- The correct interpretation of the phrase, the Lord said unto my Lord, will confirm the fact that Yahweh is also our Messiah.
