All the Old Testament (writings of the prophets, Tanach) prophesy of the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection the third day. This is the one true gospel (Luke 24, 1 Cor 15:1-6). Yeshua of Nazareth is the Mashiach of God. And all understanding of the Mashiach comes from the word of God (Tanach) declared by the one true gospel.
Let me give an example of the prophecy in Proverbs 3:34:
KJV: “Surely He scorneth the scorners, but He giveth grace to the lowly.”
LXX: “The Lord resists the proud, but He gives grace to the lowly.”
LITERAL HEBREW: “When He does depart from the departing ones, He will surely give grace to the lowly.”
The scorners are the proud. The proud are those who depart from the truth. And this prophecy found in Proverbs is of the Mashiach. “He who knew no sin, became as one departing from the truth, that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him.” And so when the Father departed from the Son in judgment, (for the prophecy says, “My God, My God why hast thou forsaken Me?”), He, the Father, at the same time, in the person of Yeshua of Nazareth, gave grace to He who is the “Lowly One”. “He who knew no sin was made the Lowly One, that we might be made the righteousness of God in the Mashiach.” It was a sure thing that the Father departed from the Son in the flesh when He layed Him on an altar and lifted the knife of judgment above Him. The willingness of the Father is clearly seen by grace. Yeshua tasted death for all people and His life is everlasting without ceasing, for He was and is very God. And the messenger of Lord at the moment, said by the word of the Lord, “Now I know you surely love, love the souls of all people.” God knows His love for all people, not in word alone, but in word and deed. And the Lord God by the eternal Spirit provided Himself the offering. This is the eternal purpose of God in the Mashiach. “The alabaster box is broken, and the sweet savor of the Spirit of God comes forth, and it is by and through the Spirit we worship the one true God. We worship not the alabaster box.” And we were chosen in Him by God before the foundations of the world to be in the Beloved, Yeshua. And so God the Father resisted the “Proud One” (The Mashiach condemned in the flesh) for us, and gave grace to the “Humble One” (The Mashiach justified in the Spirit) for us. The Proud One and the Humble One are one and the same in the prophecies. The Mashiach was condemned in the flesh, and justified in the Spirit. Once again it is one and the same. All the prophecies are fulfilled in the person of Yeshua of Nazareth, the Mashiach of God. He is very God.
And so dear saints several years ago God did a great work in our midst of the assembly we abide, myself and those with me. He wrought betrayal in our midst. For the event that occurred is what was written by Peter, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God. And if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God.” God wrought betrayal in our midst, and laid bared our hearts. Whether we had a heart of ignorance, or a heart with errors and strongholds of pride, or a heart where greater understanding was necessary, God bared our hearts, the chosen ones. And now these years pass and God has not forgotten what He wrought in the earth, for it was He who brought forth betrayal in the earth by the preaching of the one true gospel. This thing occurred because the one true gospel was preached. To forget what God has performed, is to forget God’s reminder of the state of our heart. I tell all who read this writing, God did a work in our midst and it was betrayal, and it was the beginning of judgment. What are your thoughts? You must judge whether the things I speak are truly the word of God or the words of man. Do you reject the words I write as the words of a man? Do you not know that betrayal is the beginning of judgment? Are you ignorant of the purpose of God in the Mashiach, that Yeshua entered into judgment through betrayal? Are you ignorant of the writings of the prophets and that the first judgments upon pharoah were the betrayal of Yambar and Yanah, the Hebrew magis of Pharoah? They were more than magis of the pharoah, they were false prophets. This was indeed betrayal. (2 Tim 3:8)
And where do we stand now? God wrought a work in the earth those years ago, betrayal. Did you know and do you now know that God wrought a work in the earth? Are you able to present your heart before God in all its frailty and ignorance and weakness and pride? Or will you be steadfast in your pride which opposes the very grace of God. Remember, “God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble”, as it is written. And the justified ones are those who cry out to their God, “we have sinned greatly against you, Oh Lord.” It is these ones who are justified by God, and where there is no condemnation, and will be partakers of the divine nature, looking forward to communing with their God for all eternity, face to face, clothed in immortality and incorruption. He who endures to the end shall be saved.
And that there might be the testimony of two that betrayal is the beginning of judgment, I reference 2 Thes 2, “Let no man deceive you by any means, unless a falling away comes first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition… the day of the Mashiach is not at hand”… “But if the falling away has already occurred and the man of sin is revealed, the day of the Mashiach is at hand.” The father of lies says the day of the Mashiach is not at hand, despite the falling away already occurring and the betrayer being revealed. The day of the Mashiach is at hand, the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled and judgment has begun with the household of faith and the wrath of God is about to fall upon the earth, the land of the nations. Again, the falling away has already occurred, and the man of sin revealed: “I hate the deeds of those who follow Billy Graham” sayeth Yeshua, the Lamb without blemish slain, buried, raised from the dead the third day and seated at the right hand throne of God till His enemies are put under His footstool. Yeshua, the King of Kings, is about to come back in great power and might. For all Yisrael will be saved. And the Lord Himself will fight that last battle when the nations surround Yisrael once more, and then the end. I see a new heaven and new earth without the sea!
