by DJ. Love, Bnei HaMashalim

Traditional christianity has taught mankind that a Jewish savior with the Greek name of Jesus (Iesous, Ishous or IHS) died on a cross to save us all from our sins; AND all we have to do to be saved from eternal death and torture is to believe that Jesus (IHS) is GOD in the flesh, and that Jesus (as GOD in the flesh) died so that we would not have to. That the shedding of his blood washes or covers us and our sins, and that when GOD looks down on us, GOD only sees the sacrificial blood of Jesus (IHS or God in the flesh or His own sacrifice).

Nothing Could Be Further From The Truth!

YHVH is neither blind nor a fool! This is not to say that the First Spiritually Appointed Human Son of GOD (the First of the First Fruits) did not willingly allow himself to be crucified at the hands of Roman Soldiers and at the request of some angry Hebrew legalist; Nor does it mean that his crucifixion wasn't a very important aspect of his personal ministry. This message is not to de-emphasize Messiah's crucifixion, but to emphasize his whole sacrifice. As for the Greek name Jesus (Iesous, Ihsous or IHS), it is the covert English phonetic spelling of the ancient Sun god IHSous or Iesous." Even the Roman catholic church does not try to hide this fact, and have even abbreviated the name of their so called savior, Jesus, as "IHS".

Psalms 89:20-29 (Messiah is the seed and heir of King David)
20 I have found
(King) David, my servant. I have anointed him with my Holy oil,
21 With whom my hand shall be established. My arm will also strengthen him.
22 No enemy will tax him. No wicked man will oppress him.
23 I will beat down his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him.
24 But my faithfulness and my loving kindness will be with him. In my name, his horn will be exalted.
25 I will set his hand also on the sea, And his right hand on the rivers.
26 He
(King David/Messiah) will call to me, 'You are my Father, My GOD, and the rock of my salvation!'
27 I will also
appoint [Make] him my firstborn (Son), The highest of the kings of "The Earth."

Whoa ! " appoint him" as my firstborn son? Yes, you saw it correctly. Messiah is an " appointed Firstborn Son" meaning Messiah Yahshua has been given the position of "INHERITANCE without necessarily having been physically born to it."

wasn't the physically Firstborn of YHVH! His position is
appointed! This explains why Moses, The prophets, etc. . . were not considered as a Firstborn. Messiah's position is "Spiritually Inherited" from and through King David.

As for the word "
Sacrifice", mankind has been prejudiced into conjuring up visions of pagan Roman, Mayan or Aztec type sacrifices in which the victims may have been willing to die, but historically most were not willing victims, but captured enemies. Even so, the word "Sacrifice" is now only vaguely associated with a "Living Sacrifice". Make a mental note about this phrase "Living Sacrifice", because YHVH is really only interested in "Living Sacrifices" from His children, and that includes His appointed son. Only Human Nature (Satan's Nature) requires the need for literal sacrificial DEATH and major loss of blood and-or internal organs. YHVH on the other hand has demonstrated, through the precedent set with Abraham and Isaac, that physical human sacrifice (physical death) is not a requirement for forgiveness of sin; while "Death to Self" is a requirement. See "The Two Precedents"

Romans 12:1-2
Therefore I beg you, brothers, by the mercies of GOD, to present your bodies ( your life) a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to GOD, which IS your spiritual service.
2 Don't be fashioned according to this
(pagan, etc.) world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind (receive YHVH's Holy Spirit of Love), so that you may prove what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of GOD.

Therefore, I declare to you all, right now, that the crucifixion of Messiah Yahshua was not the beginning of his personal sacrifice, but the culmination of his personal sacrifice. If we find ourselves only concentrating on his crucifixion, then we have missed the most meaningful part of YHVH's reason for his birth and life, which was
(is) his ministry on Earth. Messiah Yahshua was not born just to be crucified! When we say that we believe in the Messiah, we should actually be thinking that we believe in his ministry, and that we believe as he believed. After all, it was his ministry that angered the legalist that had him crucified. The legalist were happy at his crucifixion! So, is there a lesson to be learned from his whole "Sacrifice?" Absolutely! And it is a big lesson!

So what other lies has "The Universal Roman Harlot Church" imposed on the whole world through her own deceptions and the deceptions of her christopagan protestant daughters?

Well for starters . . . .

The side of Messiah was not "Pierced"
it was

The Roman Jesus
(IHS) has been misrepresented in translation as a physical GOD rather than a man with YHVH's Righteousness Seeking Spirit (Mind or Mentality or Character); who (representing The House of David) was allegedly critically pierced through with a spear, when in reality he was only pricked in the side to see if he would react to a painful stimulus. When he did not react, the soldier assumed he was dead. So, why didn't he react? Keep reading !

Zechariah 12:8-10   (a prophecy: Remember verse 10 ! )
8 In that
(future) day shall the LORD (H-3068 / Yehovah) YHVH defend the inhabitants of (New) Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that (future) day shall be as (likened to) David; and the "House of David" shall be as (likened to) YHVH, as (likened to) the angel (or Spirit) of the LORD (H-3068 / Yehovah) YHVH before them.
9 And it shall come to pass in that
(future) day, that I (YHVH) will seek to destroy all the nations (the enemy) that come against (New) Jerusalem.

10 And I will pour upon the "House of David"
(Spiritual Jew), and upon the inhabitants of (New) Jerusalem, the spirit (attitude) of grace and of supplications: and they (The Enemy) shall look upon ME (Yahshua, as YHVH's Proxy) whom they have (emotionally) pierced (in the Spiritual Heart), and they (the enemy) shall mourn, (just the same) as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness,(just the same) as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

YHVH wasn't physically pierced in the heart with a spear, as that is impossible. This is a metaphorical figure of speech for those with spiritual "Ears to Hear, and Eyes to See", so as to understand that YHVH was greatly broken hearted by mankind's behavior, and that at some future date those guilty persons will see the truth and realize the consequences of their past actions. Don't believe me? Let me present you with a precedent or two for this understanding.

By the way, "No man can literally look upon the face of YHVH and live!" Therefore, the need for a proxy.

Act 2:36-37
Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that GOD hath made that same Yahshua (Messiah), whom ye have crucified, both kurios (proxy) and Messiah.
Now when they heard [this], they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men [and] brethren, what shall we do?

In "Acts 2" we saw that the English word "Pricked" was used as a "Figure of Speech" to indicate an emotional injury, that resulted in spiritual conviction. In others words "Pricked" can and does have a dual or parallel meaning.

My friends, YHVH can not be pierced through except Spiritually, and Messiah was simply not pierced through, as in a deep or gaping wound, physically. Physically pricked or stabbed? Yes!, Pierced through? No!

So does Scripture give "Us" a hint about the general area where Messiah was pricked and why? Yes ! And it is not just simply Messiah's side or between his ribs. No, it's an area that has great influence on the physical heart and mind.

Psalms 73:21
Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my kidney. (believed to be the center of emotions, because the adrenal glands are located on the kidneys).

John 19:34-37
(a Roman misinterpretation)
34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pricked
(Strong's G3572; nusso; pricked or nudged) his side (kidney), and forthwith came there out blood and water (from the kidney).
35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that [what] he saith [is] true, that ye might believe.
36 For these things were done, so that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken
(Not done for forgiveness of sin).
37 And again another
(completely different) scripture (Zechariah 12:10 / above & below) saith, " They (The Enemy) shall look on him (Yahshua as YHVH's Proxy) whom they pierced(in the Spiritual Heart and pricked in the physical kidney).

The kidney was pricked or punctured, but the seat of emotion
(thought to be the kidneys, but actually the heart or mind) was pierced (made to be broken hearted) !   So did you think the Hebrew mystery language wasn't real?  It's all about physical to Spiritual Parallels ! 

Zechariah 12:10
10 And I will pour upon the "House of David"
(Spiritual Jew), and upon the inhabitants of (New) Jerusalem, the spirit (attitude) of grace and of supplications: and they (The Enemy) shall look upon ME (YHVH) whom they have pierced (in the Spiritual Heart), and they (the enemy) shall mourn, (just the same) as one mourns for his only son, and shall be in bitterness,(just the same) as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

You see . . . .
while Messiah is not GOD or YHVH in "The Flesh", as christopaganism would have the world to believe. Messiah is the metaphorical physical parallel of Spiritual YHVH. Meaning he is YHVH's "Proxy" to mankind, that man can physically see, and yet is still not YHVH, who man cannot see. Even so, Messiah, has no powers aside from the powers provided to him by YHVH. This will be exactly the same situation for all of YHVH's future children.

John 19:34 (Corrected)
But one of the soldiers with a spear pricked
(Strong's G3572; nusso: pricked or punctured) his side, and forthwith came there out (some) blood and (some) water (from the kidney).

More Proof

John 19:29
Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon
hyssop, and put it to (or into) his mouth.

Wait  a minute !

Spiritual Discernment  (1 Corinthians 2:14) tells "Us" that something is wrong with the teaching that "Messiah died on the Cross". There is no Scriptural precedent for any such occurrence. There are literally zero examples or occurrences where YHVH has ever required or even allowed human blood sacrifice for the forgiveness of sin. And while there are many symbolic pure white or symbolic "without blemish" animal sacrifices for sin; WE KNOW this to be a "Physical to Spiritual Parallel" (Parabole) for what YHVH really wants from "Us" (you and me), and that is "SELF-Sacrifice". How can YHVH's Holy Spirit lead "Us" into so much Truth, and then expect "Us" to accept this crude pagan ritual of
blood sacrifice to be the crowning glory of Messiah Yahshua's ministry. Somehow it just flies into the face of Righteous reasoning and doesn't fit the Spiritual mold of a "Living Sacrifice". How can any Spiritual follower of The Holy or Righteousness Seeking Spirit of YHVH expect YHVH or YHVH's True adopted children to believe that YHVH or "Our" appointed "Elder Brother" to suddenly adopt pagan worship practices? YHVH not only does not want blood sacrifices, but YHVH has never allowed it, and would never follow or allow any of His future children to follow after the customs or traditions of pagan worship! Not even as a physical to Spiritual Parallel !

This Pagan Blood Ritual stinks to High Heaven !

However, YHVH might allow it IF Messiah did NOT DIE at all ! Then and only then would it be symbolic of a "LIVING SACRIFICE" ! So where is the catch ? Was it the
Hyssop. Maybe the hyssop had an effect on Messiah. After all at least one hyssop variety contains the volatile oil (pinocamphone), and if directly ingested from fresh hyssop at a level higher than 1 or 2 drops per day internally, it could cause catatonic like seizures in humans.
But this is only a weak argument at best. Something is missing! Let's look again, only in more depth this time.

John 19:29
Now there was set a vessel full of vinegar: and they filled a sponge with vinegar, and put it upon
hyssop, and put it to (or into) his mouth.

Matthew 27:34
They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with
Gall: and when he had tasted [thereof], he would not drink. (BUT He did get enough into his mouth to taste it.)

Psalm 69:21 (Another Messiah Yahshua prophecy)
They gave me, also, gall (H-7219) for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.

Okay, so now we have a new lead, and that lead is "
Gall" (Whatever "Gall" is). Why don't we find out.

Okay, a Hebrew Lexicon was required for this one. Apparently the highly Christian biased "Strong's Concordance" tried to shy away from this definition, but others did not. So, "No thanks a lot, Strong's !"

ro'sh (roshe) or rowsh{roshe}; apparently the same as 'ro'sh' (7218); a poisonous plant, probably the poppy (from its conspicuous head); generally any poison (even of serpents):--gall, hemlock, poison, venom.

Yikes ! A poison! Okay, I get the picture now. The executioners are giving him an easy way out of the suffering. Maybe they offer this poisonous gall to everyone that gets nailed to the tree.
So, okay, we have a weakened (beaten) Messiah Yahshua, who had just tasted poison, and whether or not that poison was diluted hemlock, opium or maybe another poison; It was surely wise on Messiah's part not to gulp it down. Even so, a strong potential now exists for Messiah having been chemically rendered unconscious and without the ability to feel pain. You don't have to believe me; check out "Hemlock" or "Opium" for yourself. Interestingly, a research study of hemlock, a bitter tasting deadly poison that produces paralysis then death if enough is ingested, takes 72 hours to wear off. That's 72 hours or THREE Days and THREE Nights if a person only tastes it.

So what have "We" discovered?

  1. Messiah was in a weakened state.
  2. He had a vinegar diluted, but potent poison placed into the opening of his mouth, which he did taste. The purpose of the vinegar was to disguise the bitter taste  of the poison, and possibly dilute it too.
  3. Messiah did not have his side or heart thrust through with a spear, but a kidney was pricked, that produced blood and water.

    Conclusion: Messiah was in an induced catatonic state and not dead when he was taken down from the torture stake, and placed into a chamber filled with air.

My friends, YHVH's
"Spirit of Righteous Discernment" Never Lies !

You see, Satan (source of mankind's Human Nature) wants "Us" to believe that Messiah Yahshua's death was his sacrifice, but research through Righteous Spiritual Discernment indicates otherwise.
You see, according to prophecy, Messiah would be "Like Jonah"
(Jonas) inside a great fish for three full days and three full nights; AND Jonah did not die. And, also, when Abraham was about to sacrifice "His Only Begotten Son" from the Righteous lineage of Sarah, YHVH stopped him, and had him sacrifice a ram instead. "We" can always rely on YHVH for having no variableness or shadow of turning.

James 1:17
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

And so I reiterate, it was
(is) Messiah's LIVING MINISTRY that was (is) his "Sacrifice" to mankind, and his (unsuccessful physical, but very successful Spiritual) crucifixion was (is) the culmination of that MINISTRY. He gave up a normal personal life and human ambition for our sakes AND he became our righteous example and symbolic Passover Lamb!

Without his selfless MINISTRY, he would not have been an acceptable example of a "Living Sacrifice" for sin
(selfishness), and his crucifixion would have been meaningless.

1 John 3:13-18
13 Don't be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.
14 We know that we have passed out of
(physical) death into (eternal) life, because we love the brothers. He who doesn't love his brother remains in (physical & Spiritual) death.
15 Whosoever hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him.
16 By this we know love, because he laid down his
(whole) life (from beginning to end) for us (as a living sacrifice). We (also) ought to lay down our lives for the brothers(as a living sacrifice).
17 But whoever has the world's goods, and sees his brother in need, and shuts up his compassion from him, how does the love of GOD remain in him?
18 My little children, let's love not in word only, neither with the tongue only, but in deed
(Spirit) and truth.

Therefore, it is our Spiritual duty
(through selfless love) to follow in (mimic) the footsteps (Example) of Messiah Yahshua's SELFLESS MINISTRY, and to SELFLESSLY LOVE our brother (neighbor, fellow man/woman) in DEED (Spirit) and in TRUTH (basically the same as John 4:22-24 below).

Therefore "Sacrifice" means to die to "Self."

Revelation 12:11
11 They
(The Chosen Few or First Fruits) overcame him (Satan, SELF, Beast, Human Nature, etc...) because of the Lamb's blood (symbolic of his whole LIFE's MINISTRY), and because of the word of their testimony (their own personal Ministry). They did not love their (physical) life, even to death.

But they did love their MINISTRY (of Love), their neighbor and YHVH!

John 4:22-24
22 You worship that which you don't know. We worship that which we know; for salvation is from
(by way of) the Jews (tribe of Judah).
23 But the hour comes, and NOW IS, when the true worshippers will worship the Father in Spirit and Truth, for The Father seeks such to be his worshippers.
24 YHVH is spirit, and those who worship Him MUST worship in Spirit and Truth."

With recent revelations in the use of anthropomorphisms, allegories, metaphors, idioms, and other figures of speech.
(The use of physical example to teach Spiritual Truth) by YHVH and our Elder Brother, Yahshua. I have been Spiritually directed to analyze the legalism of the Christian interpretation of our Messiah's sacrifice and the shedding of his blood on "The Cross." AND, the more I study this, the more I am convinced that it is NOT and never has been the blood (itself) that washes away the sins of The World (as we have constantly been taught by Christian Legalism / doctrine), BUT the motive (Loving Intent) behind the selfless act of "SELF-SACRIFICE" (Messiah actually did give himself to be sacrificed for its symbolism) that serves to wash away sin (figuratively speaking). It was Messiah's entire Life Ministry, culminating at his crucifixion, that was his TRUE SACRIFICE. Therefore, he taught us by his example to become a "LIVING SACRIFICE" even unto our own death to Self. This is truly paralleled by even the Ancient Israelite animal sacrifices under the Laws given by Moses (Mosaic Laws). Wherein, the ancients were to choose their best (spotless) lambs (animals) to give for sacrifice, NOT because YHVH was impressed by the physical perfection of the animals, BUT rather because Israel (and mankind) was (is) impressed by physical perfection; And therefore, they would feel the LOSS of the SACRIFICE to a much greater degree. THIS truly mimics (is a physical parallel of) "SELF-SACRIFICE." Additionally, this also mimics the (very near) physical sacrifice of Isaac by Abraham; HOWEVER, by intervening to prevent the death of Isaac, YHVH showed us that it was Abraham's INTENT that was of utmost importance. AND furthermore, I believe that it is always THE INTENT of THE HEART that has been the pivotal point of differentiation between receiving "Favor" (Grace) OR not in YHVH's Eyes. Therefore, The Messiah's Role in "The Plan of Salvation" is NOT as portrayed by Christianity at all, but is more in-line with how he is portrayed by Judaism.

Therefore, since it was Messiah's Lifelong Ministry that was
(is) his sacrifice, THEN it is ALSO Our LIFE's MINISTRY that is our (Living) Sacrifice. For it is in this way that we follow IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MESSIAH. This understanding pretty much completely rules out waiting until you're on your death bed before you make the decision to believe and follow in Messiah's footsteps.

So what is the lesson to be learned? NOW IS THE TIME to follow in the footsteps of Messiah's MINISTRY, and present your physical life as a selfless LIVING SACRIFICE. For if we say we "BELIEVE IN HIM," then we MUST not only believe in his MINISTRY, but "We" must believe as he believed, because it is
our MINISTRY that follows his example and bears our fruit unto Righteousness.

Mark 4:20
20 These (chosen few or First Fruits) are those who were sown on the good ground: such as hear the word (Truth), and accept it, and bear fruit (MINISTRY), some thirty times, some sixty times, and some one hundred times."

John 15:2
2 Every branch in me that doesn't bear fruit
(Successful Ministry), he takes away. Every branch that bears fruit (Successful Ministry), he prunes, that it may bear more fruit (Successful Ministry).
3 You are already pruned clean because of the word
(Truth) which I have spoken to you.
4 Remain in me
(through my MINISTRY of Love), and I (my living Sacrifice of Love) in you. As the branch can't bear fruit (have a Successful Ministry) by itself, unless it remains in the vine (my MINISTRY of Love), so neither can you, unless you remain in me (my MINISTRY of Love).

Have you presented your life as a selfless "Living Sacrifice" according to the "Ministry" of Messiah Yahshua ?

Ephesians 5:6-16 (speaking to True Worshippers)
6 Let no man deceive you with empty words. For because of these things, the wrath of GOD comes on the sons of disobedience.
7 Don't be therefore partakers with them.
8 For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Kurios
(He who has the authority of YHVH). Walk as children of light (MINISTRY),
9 for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness
(MINISTRY) and righteousness (MINISTRY) and truth (MINISTRY),
10 proving what
(MINISTRY) is well-pleasing to the Kurios.
11 Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them
12 For the things which are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of.
13 But all things, when they are reproved, are revealed by the light, for everything that is revealed is light
14 Therefore he says, "Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Messiah will shine on you."
15 Therefore watch carefully how you walk
(MINISTRY), not as unwise, but as wise (MINISTRY);
16 redeeming the time
(MINISTRY), because the days are evil.

John 15:12
12 This is my commandment, that you love one another
(MINISTRY), even as (following my example) I have loved you (MINISTRY).

Luke 9:23-25
23 He
(Messiah) said to all, "If anyone desires to come after me (follow in my footsteps), let him deny himself (a personal living sacrifice or MINISTRY), take up his (personal) cross (living sacrifice) , and follow me (the example of my MINISTRY).
24 For whosoever desires to save his
(physical self serving) life will lose it, but whoever will lose his life (give up SELFISHNESS) for my sake, the same will save it (receive Eternal Life).
25 For what does it profit a man if he
(selfishly) gains the whole world, and loses or forfeits his own self (eternal self)?
