19:36 Have right scales, right weights, a right ephah , and a right
hin . I am Yahweh your Elohim, who brought you
out of the land of bondage.
45:10 Have right scales, and a right ephah , and a right bath.
21:33 And when a man opens a pit, or if a man digs a pit and does not cover it,
and an ox or a donkey falls in it,  the owner of the pit is to make it good,
he is to give silver to their owner, and the dead is his.
24:18 And he who smites a beast shall make it good, body for body.
21:22b And when men strive....  if there is injury, then you shall give,
life for life.
35:31 And take no ransom for the life of a murderer who is guilty of death, but
he shall certainly be put to death.
rules of moral conduct have been given by Yahweh to man, we know that Yahweh
must also abide by them.
23:19 El is not a man, to lie, neither the son of man, to repent! Has He said,
and would He not do it? Has He spoken, and would He not make it good?
And out of the ground Yahweh Elohim caused every tree to
grow that is pleasant to the sight and good for food, with the tree of life in
the midst of the garden and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.
And Yahweh Elohim commanded the man
saying, “ Eat of every tree of the
garden,  but do not eat of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for in
the day that you eat of it, you shall certainly die.”
Now if we will
be honest with ourselves, Yahweh “dug a pit” in the very center of Eden; in the
very center of Adam and Chava’s (Eve’s) home, and then told them not to
fall in by accident. Of course He knew that Adam and Chava would fall into the pit, and this was
all part of His plan to bring them to a point of willing submission.
Notwithstanding, the pit was dug, and once Adam and Chava fell into it, Yahweh,
by His own principles, was required to make it good. Remember, “ Life for life”
is the guideline
which He set forth, and his warning was that “ In the day that you eat of
it, you shall surely die .”
happened? Did Yahweh send His Son as a completely separate being or entity into
the world so that this separate being would be tortured and die, thereby
fulfilling the stipulations of Torah? Hardly! As a matter of fact, that would
NOT fulfill the stipulations of Torah by any means, because it presents a MAJOR
problem regarding the death of the innocent. Note well: we are NOT
talking about substitutional ANIMAL sacrifice here (which IS
found in the
Torah), or of someone dying, completely of their own merit, to save the life of
a friend, but of Yahweh executing the death penalty against an ordinary,
innocent man for something which that man did not do. Let’s examine a few other
guidelines which the Torah gives concerning the death of the innocent.
18:4 See, all beings are Mine, the being of the father as well as the being of
the son is Mine. The being that is
sinning, it shall die .
18:20 The being who sins shall
die . The son shall not bear
the crookedness of the father, nor the father bear the crookedness of the
son . The righteousness of the
righteous is upon himself; the wrongness of the wrong is upon himself.
Now to be
clear, Yahweh is not “crooked” because He planted a
tree of knowledge in the garden Eden. Yahweh is all righteous, all powerful, and
all knowing, and in fact, there is no unrighteousness in Him at all (Psa. 92:15)
. When Yahweh planted
that tree, He did it for His purposes, and with an end result of good in mind,
but in order to bring that good to pass, Yahweh must make it good and show
pardon for transgression HIMSELF, and not by occasioning the death of a
completely innocent, third human party.
35:33. Do not profane the land where you are, for blood profanes the land, and
the land is not pardoned for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood
of Him who shed it.
Did the Son of
Yahweh come to earth completely of His own merit? No.
3:16 For Elohim so loved the world that HE SENT
Begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him should not perish, but should have
John makes it
crystal clear that the Father SENT the Son. Now pause for a second
and consider the ramifications of that statement and what this means to us today
if the “Son” was not, actually, an aspect of the same “Father” who sent Him——if
Yahshua was not the Elohim of the Tanakh, and if Yahweh was not the real

I have just
told my son that he must die for you, and because I am his father and he
respects me (or possibly because I am in control), he has submitted to my
decision and permitted ME to put him to death. My part in
the “sacrificial procedure” has been in exact accordance with the type of
Abraham and Isaac.
Question — Who
has made more of a sacrifice: myself, who determined that my son must die, or my
son, who gave up his life for you? My son made more of a sacrifice, of course.
Who are you
going to be indebted to because of this sacrifice? You will be indebted to my
son, of course. You will owe Him something which you cannot pay – namely your
Who are you
going to love as a result? My son, quite naturally.
Who made out
comparatively easy: myself or my son? Who lost His life and who is still living?

know is that if I REALLY loved you, I would have died for you MYSELF
. If I know that
someone must die to save you, and I make somebody else be that someone, it is
love — it is
selfishness! Love will not even THINK of
putting some other innocent man to death, let alone do it. Take Yahshua’s trial and
condemnation before Pontius Pilate, for example. Pilate knew that Yahshua was
innocent—he said so himself, and then condemned Him to cruel flogging,
excruciating pain, and a prolonged, torturous death from loss of blood and
suffocation, knowing full well that he had done no wrong. As a result, who do we
love: Pilate or the Messiah?
crucifixion, who was guilty or shedding innocent blood: Pilate or the Messiah?
Pilate of course. In our hypothetical example, who is guilty: myself or my son?
I am guilty beyond measure.
Who is guilty
of murder according to both Scriptural and secular standards? I am guilty again.
According to secular standards I will serve time in prison – perhaps even a
lifetime sentence. According to Scriptural standards the assembly is commanded
to stone me with stones so that I DIE . This is the picture of reality
with which we must contend.
If this were an accurate type of the
antitype in the heavens, the blood of
mankind would be placed entirely upon his own head. If this was an accurate reflection,
Yahweh would not intervene by pulling us out of the pit, but instead would
occasion the death of the only innocent man in all the world —
the only man who had not fallen into the pit! Now that would be a real bummer
because one man
who is only a man has no power to save a world of lost sinners, even if he was
an innocent man, and even if Yahweh called Him “His Son” . If this whole panorama was an
accurate reflection of the heavenly antitype , we would be serving an unjust
Elohim who made even more subjects die in order to make restitution for the
“dead men” in His “pit”. That sort of system just doesn’t work, and under such
circumstances, you, brother or sister, could well be next on His list of human
offerings! I cannot be more clear about this. Satan is the one who causes men to
die while he continues to live. Satan is the god of human (and specifically,
child) sacrifice — NOT THE ALMIGHTY!!! In the type of
Abraham and Isaac on Mount Moriah, note well that it was NOT Isaac who was
sacrificed , but
Abraham (representative of the Heavenly Father) who DIED TO SELF , and Yahweh, who provided HIMSELF
as the ultimate Lamb ( Gen. 22:8, Hebrew
erroneously think that the phrase, “God helps those who help themselves” comes
from the Bible, when in fact, it is Benjamin Franklin’s original words. Today,
an increasing number are being hoodwinked by counter-missionaries into believing
that this statement is founded on Scriptural principles. The Psalmist’s request
of Yahweh, however, was that “ HE
give us help
from distress, for the help of man is naught. In Elohim we do mightily.” (Psa.
60:11,12a) “ For He delivers the needy
when he cries, and the poor, who has no helper” (Psa. 72:12)
For He Himself
has said, ‘ I shall never leave you or
forsake you,’ so that we boldly say, ‘ Yahweh is my helper
13:6) . David understood this and makes it
clear that an ordinary man cannot redeem the soul of another human being.
49:7 No man can redeem the soul of another, or give to Elohim a ransom for him;
 for the redemption of their soul is priceless and it ceases forever, 
that He (the Messiah) should still live for ever, (and) not see
For the camp
which continues to insist that Yahshua was neither Elohim nor Yahweh, they
provide outstanding evidence against themselves; evidence that their theology is
based on core humanistic philosophy which is the teaching that man does not need
Yahweh because he can save himself. Sadly, disastrously, those who lobby for
such a teaching are deceived and deathly wrong.
There is only
one Elohim in the heavens — “ Thus says
, the Sovereign
of Yisrael, AND HIS REDEEMER, Yahweh of Hosts:
I am ALEPH TAW
(the Beginning and Ending); there is no elohim besides ME’” (Isa.
44:6) — and
that one Elohim is just and good. Yahweh did not send us a separate entity,
being, deity, or even a man labeled as “Elohim’s Son”. Yahweh came to earth
. A portion of
Himself (the Word or Breath of His Mouth) came out from within Himself, was
manifested in bodily form (the person of Yahshua of Nazareth), and thereby “made
it good” at the stake.
12:4a In that day declares Yahweh ..... [10b]
shall look on ME ( Yahweh ) whom they have
pierced , and they shall mourn for
Him as One mourns for His only Son.
19:19 And Pilate wrote a title and put it on the stake, and it was

letter of each Hebrew word in the inscription forms the acronym, Yahweh,
revealing just who it was who paid the price of our sin on the stake. According
to Origin, Justin Martyr and other church historians, Psalm 96:10
in the first century
Jerusalem Hebrew manuscripts also read, “ Say among the nations,
Yahweh reigns from the
wood ” — a clear reference to the cruel
impaling and power of Yahshua’s vicarious atonement on our behalf. 2
We are indeed
indebted to Yahshua because He laid down His life, and we are indebted to Yahweh
because that is who Yahshua really was; because Yahweh’s “body” is the “Son” who
makes atonement for the sins of the world.3
teaches us that Yahweh alone is "I AM", the Eternal, the Aleph Taw (Beginning
and End), Yahweh alone is Creator who stretched out the earth and heavens BY
HIMSELF, Yahweh alone is Judge and Torah-giver, Yahweh is Sovereign of Israel,
Yahweh is the Lion of Judah, and Israel's Husband, and Yahweh is the One who
would be pierced and mourned for as the YACHID or Singularly Begotten Son (
12:10 ). Then
the Apostles and Yahshua come along and proclaim that Yahshua is the "I AM",
that He pre-existed from eternity as the Aleph Taw, that He created everything
by Himself, that He is Israel's Judge, Torah-giver, and Teacher, that He is the
Lion of Judah, King of the Jews, and that HE is Israel's husband who is pierced
as the YACHID Begotten Son and lays down His life for her sins. Now the only way
this can possibly be reconciled with the Tanakh is if Yahshua is also Yahweh.
But then what do you do with verses such as:
Deut. 6:4 Hear O Israel,
Yahweh your Elohim, Yahweh is One (ECHAD).
Isa. 42:8 I am Yahweh: that
is My Name, and my majesty I do not give/share with another.
Isa. 44:6 Thus says
Yahweh....there are no deities beside ME." (Isa 44:6)
Jhn. 13:16 Truly, truly, I
say to you, a Servant is not greater than His Master, nor is the One sent
greater than He who sent him.
Jhn. 14:28 You heard that I
said to you, "I am going away and I am coming to you." If you did love me, you
would have rejoiced that I said, "I am going to the Father", for the Father is
greater than I.
only way to reconcile Yahshua's professed identity with the Tanakh is to
understand that He is NOT "another elohim " or a second Yahweh, and NOT a
"second person of the godhead", but instead that He is the LITERAL bodily
manifestation and LESSER ASPECT or DIMENSION of the same One who proclaims
Himself as the Yahweh Elohim Echad or composite unity who is worshiped by His
people Israel. And if Yahshua is a "lesser dimension", but not a "lesser deity",
then that harmonizes, both with the Scriptures which require that He be Yahweh,
and with those which require that the Son (BEN YAHWEH), in his fleshly
occurrence, is "lesser than the Father (ABBA YAHWEH)".
The Father and
Son are two aspects of the singular Almighty Being who identifies Himself by the
Name, Yahweh. The Father is the immaterial, intangible aspect of that Being. The
Son is the means by which the Father reveals Himself to mortal man, "who is the likeness of the
invisible Elohim, the first-born of all creation... because in Him all the
completeness was pleased to dwell.... for in Him dwells all the completeness of
Yahweh bodily" (Col. 1:15-19, 2:9). The Son is the "form of Yahweh"
which appears to men
12:8 ). The
Father is the aspect of Yahweh which no man can see and live ( Exod. 33:20
); the same Yahweh of
which John wrote: "No man hath seen the Father
at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father He did
declare." (Jhn. 1:18)
The Son was
the aspect of Yahweh which appeared to Adam and Eve in the garden ( Gen. 3:8
), to Abraham at the
Terebinth trees of Mamre ( Gen. 18:1
), to Isaac in Gerar
26:2 ), to
Moses at Sinai ( Exod. 33:23
), to Israel in the
wilderness ( Deut. 31:15
), and to Manoah and
his wife in the time of the Judges ( Jdg. 13:22
); which wrestled
with Jacob at Peniel ( Gen. 32:28,30
); and which went
before Israel in the wilderness as the Messenger bearing the Name Yahweh (
the same Yahweh who said, "I am Yahweh: that is My
Name: my esteem I do not give to another." (Isa 42:8) The Son is also the aspect of
Yahweh that was impaled on the stake to make atonement for our transgression of
the Torah ( Psa. 22:16, Zech.
12:10 ); the
same Yahweh who said, "I am Yahweh and beside me
there is no Savior" (Isa. 45:2) , and of which Isaiah wrote:
Yahweh, the Sovereign of Yisrael, AND HIS REDEEMER, Yahweh of Hosts: 'I am Aleph
Taw (the Beginning and Ending); there are no deities beside ME." (Isa 44:6)
the Son will be the aspect of Yahweh which reigns on earth from Renewed
Jerusalem in the Kingdom to come ( Isa. 24:23
). And so I ask you
with the writer of Proverbs:
30:4 Who has ASCENDED TO HEAVEN AND CAME DOWN? Who has gathered the wind in His
fists? Who has wrapped up the waters in a garment? Who has established all the
ends of the earth? What is His Name, and what is His Son's Name? Surely you know
provides the answer:
22:7 In my distress I called upon Yahweh, and to my Elohim I cried. And from His
Temple He heard my voice, and my cry was in His ears......  And HE BOWED THE
HEAVENS AND CAME DOWN, and thick darkness was under His feet.  And He rode
upon a Cherub (Angel, Messenger), and flew, and was seen upon the wings of the
wind....  He sent from above; He took me; He drew me out of many
32:43 And when he again brings the Firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all
the messengers of Elohim worship Him." (LXX and Aramaic Peshitta, quoted in Psa.
97:7 and Heb. 1:6)
