Jesus is an English transliteration from the name Ieosus. Jesus' original Hebrew name, which our Creator instructed Mary and Joseph to name him, is Yehoshua. We prefer to use the short form of his name: Yeshua. Yeshua's name means "Salvation" and carries the meaning "יהוה is salvation".
The Creator's name, יהוה, is recorded over 6,800 times in ancient manuscripts and our current Bible translations today. However, our English translations mask his name with the capital letters "LORD" because of an ancient erroneous tradition. It is important that we restore the name of יהוה.
Word of YHVH = 66 Books of the Bible = Yeshua Messiah (Word made flesh)
Jesus Christ = Yeshua Messiah
Name of our Creator = YHVH =
For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.
- Ephesians 2:8-9
And they said, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.”
- Acts 16:31
Belief in Yeshua = Walking in his Ways
My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Yeshua Messiah (Jesus Christ) the righteous. He is the propitiation for our sins, and not for ours only but also for the sins of the whole world. And by this we know that we have come to know him, if we keep his commandments. Whoever says “I know him” but does not keep his commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him, but whoever keeps his word, in him truly the love of God is perfected. By this we may know that we are in him: whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.
- 1 John 2:1-6
Torah = The ways of our Creator = The ways of Yeshua Messiah
Sin is the breaking of the commandments recorded in the Torah. If you break the Law of YHVH (Torah), you are committing sin. Yeshua lived a sinless life, which made it possible for him to be our unblemished sacrifice. Yeshua kept Torah perfectly and taught others to do the same. Yeshua proclaimed that many who called him their Lord but who do not strive to keep Torah will hear him say "depart from me!".
Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness.
- 1 John 3:4
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.'
- Matthew 7:21-23
Everyone who makes a practice of sinning also practices lawlessness; sin is lawlessness. You know that he appeared in order to take away sins, and in him there is no sin. No one who abides in him keeps on sinning; no one who keeps on sinning has either seen him or known him. Little children, let no one deceive you. Whoever practices righteousness is righteous, as he is righteous. Whoever makes a practice of sinning is of the devil, for the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil. No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God's seed abides in him; and he cannot keep on sinning, because he has been born of God. By this it is evident who are the children of God, and who are the children of the devil: whoever does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is the one who does not love his brother.
- 1 John 3:4-10
Nothing can be added to or taken away from the Torah, even by Messiah
You shall not add to the word that I command you, nor take from it, that you may keep the commandments of the YHVH (LORD) your God that I command you.
- Deuteronomy 4:2
Yeshua affirms this:
Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
- Matthew 5:17-20
Greek interpretation of the word fulfill as an end or complete. Our Greek understanding of the word fulfill cannot be accurate if Jesus made it clear twice that the Torah and Prophets would not be abolished or destroyed. It is then made crystal clear in his very next sentence: The Law will not pass away until heaven and earth pass away; this has yet to happen. As if Jesus knew he would be misunderstood, he clarifies it even further by stating that not one letter of the Torah will pass until all is accomplished. Many believe all was accomplished on the cross, but this cannot be if there is still sin and suffering in the world. All is accomplished at Jesus' second coming and after heaven and earth pass away—just as Jesus eludes to in this beautiful portion of his Sermon on the Mount.
Fallacies that cause one to misunderstand this passage:
Our Creator defines what Food is
Believers should only eat what our Creator declared as food: Leviticus 11 and Deuteronomy 14
Animals such as Pigs, Shellfish, cats, and dogs are not food according to scripture and are unclean.
The Sabbath is Saturday, the seventh day of the week
Shabbat was erroneously changed to Sunday by the authority of the Catholic Church. It is important that believers honor, keep and guard the Biblical Sabbath day. It begins Friday at sundown and ends Saturday at sundown.
Believers are commanded to celebrate YHVH's Appointed Times - forever
One Example: Feast of Unleavened Bread
This day shall be for you a memorial day, and you shall keep it as a feast to the LORD; throughout your generations, as a statute forever, you shall keep it as a feast.
Three of the Appointed Times have yet to even be fulfilled! These times of celebration are to be looked forward to and thoroughly enjoyed!
New Believers are called to immediately forsake idolatrous practices
See Acts 15
Now this is the commandment—the statutes and the rules—that the Lord your God commanded me to teach you, that you may do them in the land to which you are going over, to possess it, that you may fear the Lord your God, you and your son and your son's son, by keeping all his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, all the days of your life, and that your days may be long. Hear therefore, O Israel, and be careful to do them, that it may go well with you, and that you may multiply greatly, as the Lord, the God of your fathers, has promised you, in a land flowing with milk and honey.
“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might...
- Deuteronomy 6:1-4
