The Messiah's Message:
Adonai's Anointed for Our Appointed Age!
Hear ye...hear ye...the Jewish Messiah has come!!! What? Are you
nuts? How can Our Messiah have come already? Aren't We, HIS People,
still suppose to be looking for HIM?
FACING THE FACTS OF HISTORY
Some people like to rewrite history. This is called propaganda. For
it tries to set forth things as happening, which did not realy occur,
as the real historical record says. In short, it is telling lies
(though, perhaps, popular lies?). So, what is the TRUTH, here?
Behold, it is written in the Holy Scriptures by the Prophet
And, if you care to count out the years indicated, the Decree to
Restore Jerusalem was issued in Persia during Nehemiah's Time and thus,
the Time of the Messiah had to be around 20-40 C.E., after which the
Romans came and destored Jerusalem and the Sanctuary in 70 C.E. (as the
Scriptures prophesied--or did God fib? Well, of course not!).
- Know, therefore, and understand, that from the going forth
of the Commandment (Decree) to restore and rebuild Jerusalem
unto the (coming) of the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks
(times), and three score and two weeks (times)--Yes, the streets
shall be built again, and (also) the walls, even in troubled
times! And after threescore and two weeks (times), shall the
Messiah be cut off, but not for himself--and the People of the
Prince that shall come shall destroy the City and the
Sanctuary...!" (Daniel 9:25-26).
Then, who were the most noted Rabbis or Teachers of this Era?
Hillel? Gamaliel? Well, neither of them claimed to be the Messiah!
So, who was it, then? Well, who claimed to be the Messiah, at this
time? You don't mean...could that MAN possibly be...no it can't be!
Well, let's put aside emotions and passions for the moment and look at
some other hard, cold facts of history.
REIGNING MESSIAH OR SUFFERING SERVANT
Because of their desparate political situation, the Jews of that Time
were looking for a Reigning Messiah--a political deliverer. A Messiah
who would come and smash the Roman Armies and set up a Utopia. And a
Utopia in which the Jews ruled the earth. Moreover, they could point
to an abundance of Holy Scriptures on the MeSheyaKh BeN DaBeyD or the
Messiah Son of David, which talk of such a Glorious Day! But, was that
the correct timing?
For, the Holy Scriptures also have an abundance of prophesies
on MeSheyaKh BeN YoSeF or Messiah Son of Joseph, concerning a Suffering
Servant (such as Isaiah 53:1-12). A Messiah who was NOT a political
ruler, but rather a martyr who was to suffer and die--but not for
Himself, as the Prophet Daniel said, above. Rather, HE was to suffer
and die for HIS People! (And, as a High Priest, making atonement for
them!) Now, why would HE need to do that? Does HIS Death make any
sense in the Holy Scriptures?
THE MYSTICAL BONDAGE OF MANKIND
The Holy Scriptures teach us that, in the beginning, God created Man
as an immortal, supernatural being, and, in a manner, something like
God Himself (Genesis 1:26-27). But, as the Woman said: "The Serpant
(the Devil) beguiled (tricked) me, and I did eat!" (Genesis 3:13).
Consequently, Man died spiritually and lost his immortality, becoming
a mere Natural, mortal human. For it is written: "For since by a man
(Adam) came death (mortallity)...For as in Adam all (now) die..."
(I Corinthians 15:21-22). Thus, through Adam, the Power of Sin has a
hold on Man, dragging him down to degredation and destruction.
Can't we do anything about this? Is there no cure or remedy?
THE HUMAN COVER-UP -- Religious Make-Up
Unfortunately, too many people ignore this inherited spiritual
sickness--that comes from Adam's Fall. (They seem to think that they
will just get better--not realizing that the poison of the Forbidden
Fruit, Sin, will continue to tear them down, untill they are dead.)
Still others try to cover up their destructive disease-- and thus, many
religions have been formed in the world, to make people look good.
However, it says:
Or, even worse:
- But, we are ALL as an unclean thing; All our (own)
righteousness is as filthy rags! (Isaiah 64:6).
And, such has been the Path of Pagans, and those who pursue Idolatry!
But, God's People were Called or CHOSEN for something different.
- There is a Way (religion) that seems right to a man, but the
end (results) thereof are the way to death!" (Proverbs 16:25)
THE TEMPORARY JEWISH TREATMENT
God demands justice and payment for our Sins! So, someone or something
has to make atonement--make the payment for Sin. Moreover, from Holy
Scripture, we also know that only BLOOD is able to make a temporary
atonement or cleansing from Sin (Leviticus 17:11 and Hebrews 9:22),
for this was the Faith and understanding of Abel (Genesis 4:3-7), and
the Faith that was practiced by Abraham and his descendants (Genesis
15:9-10). And, because of this temporary treatment, the Jews obtained
God's favor. And, HE chose them for a special mission of HIS.
MOSES AND THE PASSOVER
Later on, in the Time of the Exodus from Egypt, Moses Reformed this
simple shepherd's relgion of temporary atonement by animal sacrifice
to a more elaborate Priesthood (under Aaron and his descendants) with
a whole system of animal sacrifices. The Principle Practice was the
Sacrifice of the Passover Lamb, to temprarily (annually) atone or
pay for the Sins of the People--along with the eating of the Passover
Meal (a Covenant Meal to enfranchise all who ate of it into the payment
of the Passover Lamb). And, Jews have kept the Passover for centuries,
since the Days of Moses. But, why do we not still sacrifice today?
Why isn't BLOOD still spilled to atone for our Sins?
THE PERMENANT ATONEMENT--Messiah's Sufferings
In the Days of the Messiah (back in Ancient Roman), John the Baptizer
had this to say of the Messiah:
Thus, the Messiah was designated by God to be the Passover Lamb for
God's People. And, HIS suffering became the Passover Blood that made
a PERMENANT Atonement or payment of the Sins of those who will believe
- Behold, the Lamb of God, which takes away (pays for) the Sins
of the World!" (John 1:29)
For, the Messiah is recorded as saying of HIMSELF:
And, of HIM, it is also written:
- I am the Way (to God), the Truth, and the (eternal) Life! No
man can come to the Father, but by ME!" (John 14:6)
For the Holy Scriptures teach us:
- But God commends (demonstrates) HIS Love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Messiah died (on the Tree of Life)
for us (paying our sins)...For...we were reconcilled
(restored--healed) to God by the death of HIS Son..." (Romans
Thus, it was God's Plan, that Y'Shua or Yeshua (Jesus) should be a
suffering Messiah, to act as the High Priest and die Himself as our
- But, as many as receive HIM (Messiah), to them gives HE power
to become the Sons-of-God (immortals); Even to them who Believe
on HIS Name (Y'Shua or Savior)!" (John 1:12)
BECOMING GOD'S SON (Daughter)
All right, let me spare you all of the heavy theology, here (though a
more detailed Article on this Judeo-Christian Theology of Salvation
will follow this, if you are curious). For, to become a Son-Of-God or
immortal is basically real simple. Just repeat the following Covenant
Prayer out loud (so God will know that you agree to it, personally):
Yes, that is all there is to it! If you have said this Covenant Prayer,
then you are now reborn. Or as some say, saved. You have become a
Child of God!!! (This is what some call Salvation.) And, this is what
Messianics are all about!
- Father God, I confess to YOU that I am a sinner and have
done wrongs in YOUR Sight.
- But, I plead with YOU to forgive me of my sins, because of
YOUR Son, Y'Shua (Our Messiah), who died on the Tree of Life (or
Cross), shedding HIS Blood to pay for my sins--as my death by
- I now renouce Han-SaTahN (the Devil), his followers, and all of
their wicked ways and command them, in Y'Shua's Holy Name
(Hah-SheM), to be gone from my life!
- Instead, Heavenly Father, send YOUR precious Ru'ahKh Hah-KoDeSh
(the Holy Ghost) into my heart and life--to lead me and guide me
in following the Ways that are pleasing to YOU.
No, this is not the end, it is just a beginning. Like any new born
babe, you have a lot of growing and learning to do! And, to find out
a lot more about your New Parent--GOD. For you are not just chosen,
like a servant or slave. You have become part of HIS Family! So,
turn to the next lesson, and take you next step in Spiritual Growth.
Yeah, aren't your curious about those Mystical Powers associated with
Judaism? Well, let God give you the spiritual GIFTS that you need, to
serve HIM better, in today's wicked world! (The Messiah is here to

Yes, sometimes people like to know more about things, before they get
too involved. So, if you are one of those thinkers, and are more
