Messiah sent forth from God
Yahshua was sent forth from God to be manifest in the flesh, He did not come from Himself but of God the Father He is sent.
What the reader should take home from this article, is the fact that Yahshua was not separate from the Father. Messiah is the very image of God, being the visible manifestation of the Father sent to the world (2 Cor 4:4, Col 1:15).
1 John 2:22 Who <G5101> is <G2076> a liar <G5583> but <G1508> he that denieth <G720> that <G3754> Jesus <G2424> is <G2076> <G3756> the Christ <G5547>? He <G3778> is <G2076> antichrist <G500>, that denieth <G720> the Father <G3962> and <G2532> the Son <G5207>.
In 1 John 2:22, a single word (and) is inserted in a futile attempt to create albeit falsely a separation of the Father from the Son. When we utilize the proper translation, which in this case is the word also, a powerful yet hidden truth emerges.
Yahshua is the Messiah (or Christ). Denying the Father would not be considered antichrist; denying that the Father is also the Son would fit the criteria for being an opponent of the Messiah.
By carefully observing the message in 1 John 2:23, it becomes apparent that by denying the Son, one fails to also possess the knowledge of the Father. The word has (G2192), used twice in this verse is better translated as possess. It can also carry the meaning of being closely joined to someone (John 3:36, 5:40, 8:12).
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
He gave Himself to us so that we may have eternal life through his shed blood at Calvary. He, being sent forth from God, gave us His flesh for the life of the world to take away the sins of the world (John 1:29, 6:51, Phl 2:7, Heb 7:27, 9:26).
God in this manner loved the world, in so much that He gave of himself (through the only Son that proceeded forth from God) that whosoever believeth in and through him: referring to Yahshua, should not perish, but have everlasting life.
To look upon Yahshua is to look upon Yahweh Himself (John 7:28, 8:42, 12:45, 13:3, 14:6-7). The obnoxious notion that there is but one God, and yet three eternally distinct persons – is quite simply the textbook definition of an oxymoron.
Very few Christian believers deny the existence of the Father and the Son. Unfortunately, most of these same believers deny that the Father is also the Son; even though this is what Yahshua (Jesus) clearly taught. To be sent forth from God, or to proceed forth out of God would equate to the Son also being the Father. However, if Yahshua (who is God) is merely sent by God then we are dealing with a plurality of Gods.
1 John 2:23 Whosoever <G3956> denies <G720> the Son <G5207> has <G2192> not <G3761> the Father <G3962>: (he that) acknowledges <G3670> the Son <G5207> has <G2192> the Father <G3962>also <G2532>
The Greek word kai (G 2532) is used primarily as a connector as in it joins together words or word groups. Also, in 1 John 2:22, this Greek word (kai) should connect the Father to the Son as one.
1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denies that Yahshua is the Messiah? He is antichrist, that denies the Father (is) also the Son
How many false teachers fail to understand that the appearance of Yahshua the Son is in fact the image of Yahweh the Father? Messiah is the image of God (2 Cor 4:4, Col 1:15).
Matt 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us
Yahshua clearly stated, “He that sees me has also seen the Father” (John 14:9).
Isaiah 9:6 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, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Sent forth from God – manifest in the flesh
The following highlighted words in the five verses below are all translations of a single Greek word (G1831). This word is usually translated as follows:
- Cometh, come forth, proceed, went out, came out, departed
- To be made known, or declared
- Come forth from a source
- To come forth from physically
- To come forth (from privacy) into the world
John 8:42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth (G1831) and came from God; neither came I of myself, but he sent me
Yahshua said unto them, if God were your Father you would love me: for I proceeded forth moreover my arrival is from God; neither came I of myself, but of the same I am sent.
This statement does in no way lend credence to the deceitful doctrine of the trinity.
What Yahshua was saying is this; I did not come forth from myself. I was sent forth from God; also my arrival is from God. Yahweh is a spirit and Yahshua is the physical manifestation of that same spirit.
John 16:27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out (G 1831) from God.
Yahshua declared, truly, truly I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am (John 8:58). The spirit of Yahshua preceded the birth of Moses. However, the birth or manifestation of Yahshua (who is also the image of Yahweh) in the flesh transpired after Abraham’s earthly journey.
John 16:28 I came forth (G 1831) from the Father, and am come into the world: again, I leave the world, then go to the Father.
God the Son came forth from God the Father: this is a mystery few can comprehend. The carnal mind can not come to terms with that which is spiritually understood (1 Cor 2:14).
John 16:30 Now are we sure that thou knowest all things, and needest not that any man should ask thee: by this we believe that thou camest forth (G 1831) from God.
The message that Yahshua attempted to get across: that He was sent forth from God, is repeated over 50 times in the gospel of John. Towards the end of the sixteenth chapter of John, we see that the disciples seemed to finally understand that He would return to the Father from which He came forth.
John 17:8 For I have given unto them the words which thou gavest me; and they have received them, and have known surely that I came out (G 1831) from thee, and they have believed that thou didst send me.
Yahshua came forth from the Father – the image of the invisible
If Yahshua in the flesh was the manifestation of Himself, and not that of the Father, then the doctrine of the trinity might make some sense.
Yahshua, who is God, also is the image of the invisible God known as Yahweh. Simply put, God is a spirit, and Yahshua is the image thereof (Col 1:15).
The Pharisees asked Yahshua where his Father was. His reply proved they knew not God the Father. He declared that if they had known Him, then they also would also have knowledge of His Father (John 8:19). Their father was the evil one referred to as the devil, and their dirty deeds proved this to be true (John 8:44, 1 Thes 2:15).
And he that sees me sees (the one that) sent me (John 12:45).
John 17:3 And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, even Yahshua the Messiah who is sent forth
The word he is inserted without warrant into John 8:42, it is also deceitfully inserted twice in Heb 1:2.
Heb 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds
God, who spoke in times past through the prophets has in these last days spoken unto us by the Son, who is appointed heir of all things, by whom also the worlds are made.
Then said Yahshua unto them, yet a little while am I with you, and then I go unto the one that sent me (John 7:33).
John 14:6 Yahshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me
The reason why no one can come to the Father except it be through the Son is revealed in the following verses (Mat 11:27, John 14:7).
No man cometh to the Father; apart from Yahshua who is the Father (Isa 9:6).
What Yahshua said in the following verse should easily nullify the deceitful teaching of a trinity.
John 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Immediately after sharing this powerful mystery, one of His disciples said: “show us the Father and we will be content.”
What Yahshua basically said is this: “I have been with you for some time now, and yet you still do not have the knowledge or understanding of who I am Philip.”
He that hath seen me, hath seen the Father also. How then do you say, show us of the Father? (John 14:9).
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works
What did the Messiah mean when He said: “the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself.” The word of in this verse is better translated as from. Yahshua did not speak separately from Himself, He spoke through the spirit of the Father that dwelt within Him.
Remember Yahshua said: I even the Father are one (John 10:30).
John 8:42 Yahshua said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but of the same I am sent
Yahshua said: “neither came I of myself.” He did not arrive separately of Himself but was sent forth from God.
The word “of” used in John 8:42, and the following verses refer to not being separate from God the Father.
- I do nothing of myself (John 8:28).
- I am not come of myself (John 7:28).
- I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me (John 14:10).
An analogy of this separation is found in John 15:4.
John 15:4 Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me
We as the branches can in no way bear fruit separate by ourselves. We are only able to produce good fruits if we are attached to Yahshua who is the vine.
