“I and my Father are one.” Then those of Yudah took up stones again to stone him (They picked up stones AGAIN to stone him. Selah!). Yeshua answered them, “Many good works have I showed you from my Father. For which of these works do you stone me?” Those of Yudah answered him, “For a good work we stone you not, but for “speaking against God” (the untranslated word “blasphemy” used), and because that thou, being a man, make yourself God. Yeshua answered them, “Is it not written in your Law, “I said, you are Elohiym”. If He called him Elohiym whom the word of God came, and the scripture (Tanach, writings of the prophets, Old Testament, all one and the same) cannot be broken, you say of him who the Father has sanctified, and sent into the world, ‘You ‘speak against Elohiym’ (blasphemy), because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not. But if I do (the works of my Father), though you believe me not, believe the works (of my Father). That you may know, and believe that the Father is in me, and I in him.” Therefore they sought to take him again, but he escaped out of their hands. (For his time was not yet, and no man takes his life.)-Letter of Yohan the apostolos called “gospel”, which is no gospel, but has the gospel contained within.
How those of the flesh are confounded with words of the Spirit. For the spiritual speak not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. For he that is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is judged of no man. For the natural man does err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God. And the one true gospel is of the Spirit of God, and it is spirit, and it is sure and true to the children of the inheritance. And the one true gospel is the Mashiach, Yeshua of “Nazareth” died for our sin, and according to the Tanach, He was buried, and He rose again the third day, and according to the Tanach.
Yeshua quoted from the writings of the prophets in Psalms 82, a mashal (likeness) of Asaph, a likeness of the Mashiach as is all the Tanach:
Elohiym stands in the assembly of the mighty One (God).
He judges in the midst of Elohiym.
How long will you judge unjustly, and lift up the persons of the wicked. Selah (pause to consider the Mashiach to whom all the Tanach prophesies of. Looking unto Yeshua the author and finisher of “the faith”, “one faith”.).
Defend the poor and the orphan. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection)
Do justice to the afflicted and the needy. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection)
Save them out of the hand of the wicked. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection)
They know not, neither understand. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection. For had they known the Lord of glory they would not have crucified Him. “This night you shall all be offended with me.”)
They walk in darkness. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection. For had they known the Lord of glory they would not have crucified Him.)
All the foundations of the earth are shaken. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection)
I have said, “You are Elohiym, and all of you are the son of the Most High. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection. And God the Father is gracious to include us in the Mashiach, who is the Son of God. For the Yeshua ha Mashiach was and is Elohiym and he is the Son of God – it is true!)
But you shall die as a man, and fall like one of the rulers. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection. Did not Yeshua die as a man, fall as a ruler and God raised him from the dead.)
Arise, Elohiym, judge the earth. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection)
For you shall inherit all nations. (Fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection. Yes, Yeshua ha Mashiach shall inherit all nations and all people.)
Forgive my repetition in declaring all the writing of the prophet, Asaph, fulfilled in the Mashiach’s death for our sins, His burial and His resurrection the third day: every line, every verse, every passage. For the Spirit of the Father zealously testifies concerning His Son and through the scriptures of the prophets. God the Father does not grow weary like men grow weary in declaring over and over Yeshua ha Mashiach and from the scriptures of the prophets.
We are not of those who know not the scriptures and their Author, but we are of the gospel of grace and the will of God to the saving of the soul. And so by the Spirit of grace let us proclaim Yeshua the Mashiach from all the writings of the prophets, no exceptions.
Yeshua, the risen Son of God, is Elohiym, the God of all gods. He is the God of the Father. And the Father is God, and the God of the Son, and God reveals Himself as the Father and the Son. There is the testimony of two, that people might know their God. “In Adam all died, in the Mashiach all shall be made alive, each person in God’s own order.” At the end of the Psalms 82 God the Father declares to the Son, “Arise, Elohiym, judge the earth”. This is fulfilled in the death, burial and resurrection of Yeshua. And He inherited all nations in the resurrection, to fulfill the gospel preached to Avraham, “in Thy Seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed.” And God did not say “seeds” as many, but “seed” as one. And the “seed” is Yeshua ha Mashiach. For He died like a man, and fell as a ruler, and He tasted death for all people, especially those who believe. And the children of grace can see in this Psalms by grace that the Son of God is the Elohiym of the Father, as the Father is the Elohiym of the Son. And this is well in agreement with the words of Yeshua, “I and my Father are one.” I do not care if a man agree with me, but may all agree with God the Father and His beloved Son, Yeshua, raised from the dead. This can only be by grace and the will of God. I could speak many more words of this Psalms, but time and space do not permit. For all the books in all the libraries in all the world could not contain the exploits of our God and His mercy that endures forever. For the end of the Lord (Yahavah) is the Lord (Yahavah) is very pitiful and of tender mercies. For Elohiym loves all people who have every lived, and without partiality.
Yeshua is Elohiym. God the Father (and He too is Elohiym) by His Spirit includes the heirs in the promise in the Mashiach, who is the promise of all ages from before the foundation of the earth. He is “the Seed”, and the Son of God, and “the King of God”, and “the Mashiach of God” forever more. The natural man understands not the spiritual words, that Yeshua quoted to those of Yudah, that prophesied of the Mashiach. But God has granted the children of grace to understand the deep things of God. Thanks be unto God for His indescribable gift!
