Before we go any further, it must be made known that The Roman Jesus was not and is not the true name of the "The Messiah." There is no resemblance between the Name Yahshúa and the name Jesus. neither is there any resemblance between their meanings. Yahshúa means: "the Salvation of Yah or Yahu." "Jesus" is derived from Iesus, derived from Iesous (IHSOUS) derived, most probably, from the Greek goddess of healing, Ieso or Iaso. her name was derived from iasis ,which means "healing". Furthermore, the short form, or original source of the name Iesous (IHSOUS) is Ies (IHS), the very surname of Bacchus or Dionysus; who were named in honor of Zeus the Sun-deity (See Disclaimer). Therefore, the two names differ completely in their origin, and in their meaning. And more importantly: Yahshúa's name contains the Name of his Father, which the substitute name does not. Further proof of the Father's Name being in the Son's Name is found in Ephesians 3:14-15, "For this reason I bow my knees to the Father ... from Whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named." Surely, if His family received His Name, His only begotten Son will also have His Name. Additionally, the true transliteration of Y'Shua is Joshua.


John 5:43
43 I have come in my Father's
(Good) name (YHVH), and you don't receive me. If another (Jesus?) comes in his own name, you will receive him.


A Prophecy of Y'Shua


Isaiah 53: (Ancient Prophecy of Messiah Y'Shua) (References, and explanations in Parenthesis)

1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the YHVH revealed?

2 For He (Y'Shua) shall grow up before Him (YHVH) as a tender plant, and as a ROOT out of a dry ground (Romans 15:12, Isaiah 11:1-6) . . He (Y'Shua) hath no form (No Attractive Body) nor comeliness (Neither attractive nor handsome); and when we shall see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire him (simply not sexually attractive at all); YHVH might even have chosen for him to have been physically ugly. This is not to say that he was ugly, but just a reminder that his purpose in life was to promote the Spiritual, and not the physical.

Note: The Following Verses are clear indicators that Y'Shua is the subject of this entire prophecy and not the ancient nation of Israel. However, this does not mean that "The Chosen" (First Fruits) will not suffer similar fates. The students are not greater than the Master.

3 He (Y'Shua) is despised and rejected (Matthew 21:42, Mark 8:31, Luke 9:22) of men; a man of sorrows (John 16:20-22), and acquainted with grief (1 Peter 2:19-24): and we hid as it were our faces from Him (man turned away from Him); He was despised, and we esteemed Him not.

4 Surely He (Y'Shua) hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of YHVH, and afflicted.

5 But He (Y'Shua) was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we (True Believers) are healed (1 Peter 2:24).

6 Like sheep we have all have gone astray; we have all turned to his own way (Self-centered); and The Father (YHVH) hath laid on him the iniquity of us all (the task to lead us away from sin).

7 He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth (did not complain): He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His mouth (Acts 8:32).

8 He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for He was cut off out of the land of the living (sacrificed): for the transgression of My (YHVH's) People was He stricken.

Note: Verse eight does Not say Y'Shua sacrificed himself for everybody, but qualifies that statement with "My People" indicating those who Truly Believe And Obey (Through Love). See "Sacrifice of Messiah."

9 And He (Y'Shua) made His grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his place (H4194) of death (grave); because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth (Matthew 27:57-60).

Note: The following three verses touch upon The Soon To Come and Future Sabbath Millennial Period.

10 Yet it pleased YHVH to bruise Him; He hath put Him to grief: when thou shalt make His soul (living body) an offering for sin, He shall see His (Spiritual) seed, He shall prolong his days (Eternal Life), and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand (YHVH's Kingdom of Heaven 'On Earth' shall prosper the whole Earth through Y'Shua).

11 He shall see (experience the reality) of the travail of His soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant (Y'Shua) justify many; for He shall bear their iniquities (sins).

12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he (Y'Shua) shall divide the spoil with the strong (The Elect or Chosen Few); because he hath poured out his soul unto the place (H4194) of death (grave): and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many (not all), and made intercession for the transgressors (who believed and were obedient).

 

THEREFORE, All of those "So Called" Jesus pictures, crucifixes, and statues are a hoax, and those of you, who are involved, need to determine if you actually want to idolize a false image... Actually we are Commanded by YHVH not to possess images of Heavenly or Earthly things. Why?. When human Beings possess Physical Objects of endearment, they run the risk of making that or those physical object(s) more important in their Hearts than YHVH. When any physical or physically represented spiritual object becomes more important to you than your INVISIBLE Creator. . .You are guilty of Idolatry!

Truly Y'Shua was and is worthy of Praise, Glory, and Honor
; but
not Worship. To worship Y'Shua is idolatry, but to worship the YHVH through Y'Shua's example is the correct understanding. See Disclaimer.

 

Exodus 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

 

The photo below is not Y'Shua, it never was, and according to Holy Scripture it doesn't look like Y'Shua either; as a matter of fact, the person who posed for it was a prisoner.


Note: I feel it is my duty to inform my readers of a little known point of distinction concerning Messiah Y'Shua. This distinction involves two similar yet different titles that are often confused. The first is "The Son of Man," and the second is "The Son of GOD." The first title (The Son of Man) refers to Messiah Y'Shua's physical conception and birth. The second title (The Son of GOD) refers to the Messiah Y'Shua's Spiritual Rebirth into The Coming Kingdom of YHVH on Earth.
