Is Yahushua, Yahuwah in the flesh? Well in the end it is up to the individual to decide this.
This article is written from the perspective of the each of us having a body of flesh and a spiritual body.If you view it this way, it will make the following scriptures easier to understand. The body cannot comprehend all the things of the spirit.
Rather the body looks at the things of the spirit and considers them foolish.
1 Corinthians 2:14-16
14 But the natural man does not accept the things [the teachings and revelations] of the Spirit of Elohim, for they are foolishness [absurd and illogical] to him; and he is incapable of understanding them, because they are spiritually discerned and appreciated.
15 But the spiritual man judges all things [questions, examines and applies what the Rauch haKodesh reveals], yet is himself judged by no one [the unbeliever cannot judge and understand the believer’s spiritual nature].
16 For who has known the mind and purposes of Yahuwah, so as to instruct Him? But we have the mind of the Meshiach [to be guided by His thoughts and purposes].
So let us not jump to conclusions, based merely upon what we understand through the flesh, but take the time to see what the spirit shows us in His word.
So, Yahuwah Himself will give you a sign: Behold! The virgin will conceive and will bring forth a son; and she shall call His name ImmanuEl’ (‘Elohim with us’).
For your Maker is your husband;
Yahuwah of Hosts is His name;
and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel;
He is called the Elohim (Plural) of all the earth.
John 1:1-3, 14
1 In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Yahushua), and the Word was with Yahuwah, and the Word was Yahuwah Himself.
2 He was [continually existing] in the beginning [co-eternally] with Yahuwah.
3 All things were made and came into existence through Him; and without Him not even one thing was made that has come into being.
14 And the Word became flesh, and lived among us; and we [actually] saw His glory, glory as belongs to the [One and] only begotten Son of the Father, [the Son who is truly unique, the only One of His kind, who is] full of grace and truth (absolutely free of deception).
9 Yahushua said to him, “Have I been with you for so long a time, and you do not know Me yet, Philip, nor recognize clearly who I am? Anyone who has seen Me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father?’
10 Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you I do not say on My own initiative or authority, but the Father, abiding continually in Me, does His works [His attesting miracles and acts of power].
11 Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe [Me] because of the [very] works themselves [which you have witnessed].
11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who was riding it is called Faithful and True (trustworthy, loyal, incorruptible, steady), and in –> righteousness <– He judges and wages war [on the rebellious nations].
12 His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many royal crowns; and He has a name inscribed [on Him] which no one knows or understands except Himself.
13 He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called –>The Word of Yahuwah <—
14 And the armies of heaven, dressed in fine linen, [dazzling] white and clean, followed Him on white horses. 15 From His mouth comes a sharp sword (His word) with which He may strike down the nations, and He will [g]rule them with a rod of iron; and He will tread the wine press of the fierce wrath of Yahuwah, the Almighty [in judgment of the rebellious world]. 16 And on His robe and on His thigh He has a name inscribed, –> “KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” <–
Melek – King
Tzadik – Righteousness.
After Yahushua rose He came to Thomas (doubting Thomas), so that Thomas could see that He had indeed risen. Thomas says:
28 Thomas answered Him, “My Maschiach and my Elohim!”
There was no correction for Thomas by Yahushua for he had spoken correctly. Yahushua was his Lord and was His Elohim. Yahushua Himself tells us the He and the Father are one.
30 I and the Father are one.
We see in Matthew 2:2 the Maggi coming before Yahushua and saying:
Where is He who has been born King of the Jews? For we have seen His star in the east and have come to worship Him.
Yahushua was a King. He was a king who could redeem. In Ephesians 1:7 we see it written:
7 In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness and complete pardon of our sin, in accordance with the riches of His grace.
There are two points here: Matthew 2 tells us that they come before Him to worship Him. None are to be worshiped except Yahuwah. Yahushua is Yahuwah. The promised one.
None can redeem us from sin except the Father. The son came to redeem us though. The son is the Father. This is found in Psalms 130 (before Yahushua was born):
7 O Israel, hope in the Yahuwah;
For with Yahuwah there is lovingkindness,
And with Him is abundant redemption.
8 And He will redeem Israel
From all his sins.
Scripture tells us of when Moses came before Yahuwah and Moses asked Him who he should say sent the message to them.
14 Yahuwah said to Moses, “I Am Who I Am”; and He said, “You shall say this to the Israelites, ‘I Am has sent me to you.’”
In John 8:58 we see Yahushua speaking in the temple and He says:
58 Yahushua replied, “I assure you and most solemnly say to you, before Abraham was born, I Am.”
The phrase we see as I AM comes from the word Yah. It means I AM. Yahushua means I AM salvation. The following scriptures confirm this.
35 Yahushua replied to them, “[I AM the Bread of Life.
41 … ” I AM the Bread that came down out of heaven.”
48 I AM the Bread of Life
51 I AM the Living Bread that came down out of heaven.
12 I am the Light of the world.
John 10:7,9, 11, 14
7 I AM the Door for the sheep…
9 I AM the Door…
11 I AM the Good Shepherd….
14 I AM the Good Shepherd…
25 Yahushua said to her, “I am the Resurrection and the Life.”
1 I am the true Vine
6 Yahushua said to him, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.
1 Timothy 2:5
5 For there is one Elohim, and one mediator between Elohim and men, the man Yahushua haMaschiach;
You believe that Elohim is one. You do well. The demons also believe and shudder.
We cannot go to the Father except through Him as He is the Father. He is the I AM. We see in His word that when He proclaimed to be the same as the Father people wanted to stone Him.
30 I and My Father are one.”
31 Then the Jews took up stones again to stone Him.
32 Yahushua answered them, “Many good works I have shown you from My Father. For which of those works do you stone Me?”
33 The Jews answered Him, saying, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy, and because You, being a Man, make Yourself Elohim.”
34 Yahushua answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, “You are elohim”’?
35 If He called them elohim, to whom the word of Elohim came,
36 do you say of Him whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of Elohim’?
37 If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; 38 but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in Him.”
4 “Hear, O Israel! Yahuwah is our Elohim, Yahuwah is one (‘echad – a plural one)!
There is a lot of scripture there to consider. In the end it comes back to the individual to decide.
