Intimate Relationship

Isaiah 45:5-7
5 I am Yahveh, and there is no one else; besides me there is no GOD. I will gird you, though you have not known me;
6 that they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that
there is none besides me: I am YHVH, and there is no one else.
7 I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create adversity. I am
YHVH, who does all these things.

So what does it mean to "Have an Intimate Relationship with YHVH"?

1 John 2:3
And hereby we know that we know him, if we keep His Commandments.

I'm not just speaking of "Head Knowlwdge"; I'm speaking of "Heart Knowledge" too !
In order to know YHVH, we must think like YHVH; in order to think like YHVH, we must have the "Mind of YHVH"; in order to have the "Mind of YHVH", we must have the Holy Spirit of YHVH
(character of YHVH). For the Holy Spirit of YHVH is YHVH's Heart, Mind, and Soul !  The Holy Spirit has the power to transform a natural (self-centered) mind into the selfless and loving Mind of YHVH. To possess The Holy and Spiritual Mind of YHVH is to become like YHVH in Spirit, Attitude, and Character.

Therefore, to think like YHVH is to be

. . . Once we reach this point (which always comes after True Repentance) then we can begin to truly understand why we are Spiritually compelled to keep YHVH's Commandments. How can "We" not, they are "Our" Commandments too ! YHVH's Commandments directly reflect "Our" NEW Spirit, Attitude, and Character from the "Mind of YHVH", that now resides in "Us", and which is never changing!

So what may we correctly derive from this understanding of the "Mind of YHVH"?

  • That the Old (First) Testament is just as valid as the New (Last) Testament, because the Perfect (Spiritually Inspired) Mind of YHVH is never changing; and both the "First Testament" and "The Last Testament" were Spiritually Inspired.
  • That there is NO real Spiritual difference between Torah and The Laws of YHVH given through Moses or the prophets, and the Commandments given by YHVH through Messiah Yahshua and His Apostles . . . . except in as much as the difference is in the 'Misunderstanding' of YHVH's Laws by natural minded men (both Jew and Greek).
  • That the natural minded man cannot understand the Spiritual nature of YHVH or of True Believers, and is therefore Legalistic by nature. As such, the natural man sees all men as he sees himself, and judges the actions of others, including YHVH, with a legalistic perspective. Therefore, the natural man will be the first to condemn the true children of YHVH, and those that follow the Old (First) Testament as being Legalistic.
  • That natural minded men seek either 'Free Salvation' (New Testament Legalism) or 'Earned Salvation' (Old Testament Legalism).

. . . New Testament Legalism comes from the misinterpretation of Spiritual truths as given by Messiah Yahshua and the Apostles, as Magic Rules of Salvation. This comes from a lack of Spiritual understanding, and the desire to obtain eternal life without Works of Faith through Selfless Acts of Love. This is a 'Free Hand-out' or 'Get Something for Nothing' mindset. This is further complicated by half truths such as, "Once Saved Always Saved", and deceptions such as, "All You Have To Do Is Believe, And YHVH Does All The Rest"; although some of these 'Deceptions' may be technically correct, the problem with these concepts is that legalist don't understand what it means "To Believe". They simply do not know YHVH, and are, therefore, not known by YHVH (no intimate relationship with YHVH). Their faith is not True Faith, but a desire to receive without giving. There is no True Love in the relationship, and therefore, no resultant Works of Faith (Obedience through Love) or for that matter "No True Repentance."

. . . Old Testament Legalism comes from the interpretation of The Laws of YHVH as given by Moses, and Prophets as Magic Rules of Salvation. This, also, comes from a lack of Spiritual understanding, and the desire to earn one's way into eternal life through Works of faith in one's self. Again, there is no intimate relationship with YHVH. The faith is not in YHVH, but in one's ability to follow The Rules through one's own Works (efforts).

. . . The reality is that there is No Difference between the Old Testament Laws or Commandments, and the New Testament Commandments. In actuality they are both intimate "Marriage Vows of Love" exchanged between YHVH and those that "Know and are Known by The Eternal". . . . When you are "In Love" with The Eternal . . . . "Obedience is a Spiritual Desire from the Heart" . . . . "An Act of Love" !

It is not HOW we obey that is important to YHVH; It is WHY we obey that is important to YHVH. It is "The Intent of The Heart"  that determines YOUR CHARACTER.

Abstain from fleshly lusts, and selfish desires of the heart. Keep All of YHVH's Commandments simply because you Love YHVH, have no faith in yourself or other men, but place all of your Trust and Faith in the strength and purity of YHVH's Love for those that Love Him; KNOWING and BELIEVING that The Eternal will NEVER lead anyone astray or cause harm to come upon those who obey Him.

1John 5:3
For this is the love of YHVH, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous [indeed they are the resultants of LOVE].


Some Supporting Verses



1 Corinthians 1:21
For seeing that in the wisdom of YHVH, the world through its wisdom DIDN'T KNOW The ETERNAL, it was The ETERNAL's good pleasure through the foolishness of teaching to save those who believe.


Galatians 4:9 (Oh foolish Galatians)
But now that you have come To KNOW The ETERNAL, or rather to BE KNOWN BY The ETERNAL, why do you turn back again to the weak and miserable elements, to which you desire to be in bondage all over again?



Titus 1:10-16
For there are also many unruly men, vain talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision (Judeo-Pagans), whose mouths must be stopped; men who overthrow whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for dishonest gain's sake. One of them, a prophet of their own, said, "Cretans are always liars, evil beasts, and idle gluttons." This testimony is true. For this cause, reprove them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not paying attention to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn away from the truth.
To the pure, all things are pure; but to those who are defiled and unbelieving, nothing is pure; but both their mind and their conscience are defiled. They Profess That They KNOW The ETERNAL, but BY THEIR (SELF-centered) WORKS (NOT "GOOD WORKS" According To FAITH) they deny him, being abominable, DISOBEDIENT, and Unfit For Any Good Work.


So What Does It Mean "TO KNOW" Or For That Matter "BE KNOWN BY" The ETERNAL?


1 John 4:7-8


To KNOW or To Be KNOWN by The Creator means to have an INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP WITH THE ETERNAL! It means to be an 'Extension' of YHVH Himself, just exactly like Messiah Yahshua is an 'Extension' of YHVH.


Job 18:5-21 (The Place Of Him Who doesn't know The Eternal)

"Yes, the light of the wicked shall be put out, The spark of his fire shall not shine. The light shall be dark in his tent, His lamp above him shall be put out. The steps of his strength shall be shortened, His own counsel shall cast him down. For he is cast into a net by his own feet, And he wanders into its mesh. A snare shall take him by the heel; A trap shall lay hold on him. A noose is hidden for him in the ground, A trap for him in the way. Terrors shall make him afraid on every side, And shall chase him at his heels. His strength shall be famished, Calamity shall be ready at his side. The members of his body shall be devoured, The firstborn of death shall devour his members. He shall be rooted out of his tent where he trusts. He shall be brought to the king of terrors. There shall dwell in his tent that which is none of his. Sulfur shall be scattered on his habitation. His roots shall be dried up beneath, Above shall his branch be cut off. His memory shall perish from the earth. He shall have no name in the street. He shall be driven from light into darkness, And chased out of the world. He shall have neither son nor grandson among his people, Nor any remaining where he sojourned. Those who come after shall be astonished at his day, As those who went before were frightened. SURELY Such Are The Dwellings Of The UNRIGHTEOUS, . . . . . . . This Is The Place Of Him WHO DOESN'T KNOW The ETERNAL."

Who Sits on YHVH's Throne?

Whenever, I am asked, "Why don't you believe that Jesus is GOD," one of my standard comebacks is simply to ask them the
"Common Sense" question, "Who sits on the throne of GOD?" This usually lets me know right away if they have any real Bible knowledge or not. Those who are better versed in Bible knowledge will automatically realize that they are in trouble; For most will know that their Jesus is supposed to sit on the "Right Hand of GOD," therefore meaning that he does not sit on the throne of GOD (YHVH). Those that are less versed and do not realize this are simply amazed, and are at a loss for many words. Below are most, but not all of the passages that clearly state Messiah Yahshua's subordinate status to YHVH, as YHVH's "Right Hand" man, and therefore not GOD.

Hebrews 8:1-2
Now in the things which we are saying, the main point is this. We have such a high priest (Yahshua), who sat down on the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,

Romans 8:34
34 Who is he who condemns
(by YHVH's authority)? It is Messiah who died (to SELF), yes rather, who was raised from (among) the dead (by YHVH), who is at the right hand of GOD, who also makes intercession for us.

Ephesians 1:15-21
15 For this cause I also, having heard of the faith in YHVH's Magistrate (Proxy), Messiah Yahshua, which is among you, and the love which you have toward all the saints,
16 don't cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers,
17 that the GOD of our Divine Magistrate
(Proxy), Messiah Yahshua, the Father of glory, may give to you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him (YHVH);
18 having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope of his
(Yahshua's) calling, and what are the riches of the glory of his (Yahshua's) inheritance in the saints,

YHVH doesn't need an inheritance. How can the Creator of everything inherit anything, as everything is already His? And from whom will He inherit it? After all, inheritances are passed down, not up! Besides YHVH doesn't seek inheritance, He seeks Love and those that can give it.

19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe
(not just towards Yahshua), according to that working of the strength of His (YHVH's) might

Yahshua is not so unique that he will be the only one that will receive authority, honor, power, and glory. Yahshua will be and is simply the second in command with respect to YHVH, and we (the chosen few) will be under both YHVH's and Yahshua's authority (all authority comes from YHVH). Additionally there will be those directly under our authority, as we will become judges, priests, etc. (Revelation 1:6, Revelation 5:9-10, Revelation 20:6, 1 Corinthians 6:2-3). This concept is simple; it is called the "Chain of Command", but with a Righteous twist. That twist being that ALL those that make up the chain will be of ONE ACCORD, with ONE SPIRIT, and therefore "LIKE MINDED".

20 which He
(YHVH) worked in Messiah, when He (YHVH) raised him from the dead, and made him to sit at His (YHVH's) right hand in the heavenly places,
21 far above all
(Earthly) rule, and (Earthly) authority, and (Earthly) power, and (Earthly) dominion, and every (Earthly) name that is named, not only in this (Earthly) world, but also in that (Earthly World) which is to come (The New Jerusalem will be the Holy City; he will also, have authority over angels, as it pertains to his Earthly authority in "The Kingdom of YHVH on Earth.").

Colossians 3:1
If then you were raised together with Messiah, seek the things that are above, where Messiah is, seated on the right hand of GOD.

Hebrews 10:12
12 but he
(Messiah Yahshua), when he had offered one sacrifice for sins (his ministry) forever, sat down on the right hand of GOD;

Hebrews 12:2
2 looking to Messiah Yahshua, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of GOD.

Since Yahshua is the "Perfecter of Faith", we MUST be Spiritually compelled to follow his example of selfless sacrifice. If we do not, then our faith is false.

1 Peter 3:22
22 who
(Yahshua) is at the right hand of GOD, having gone into heaven, angels and authorities and powers being made subject to him (by YHVH, not by himself, as it pertains to Yahshua's Earthly authority in "The Kingdom of YHVH on Earth.").

What does The Tanakh
(First Testament)

Isaiah 9:6-7
6 For unto us a child
(Messiah Yahshua) is born, unto us a son is given; and the government (of The Earth) shall be on his shoulder (his responsibility): and his name (or title) shall be called Wonderful (Strong's #6382, "PELE," A Miracle or A Wonder or A Marvel), Counselor (Strong's #3289, "YA'ATS," One who guides or advises), Mighty "EL" (Strong's #410, "EL," Strength, Mighty, and may be used with ANY deity or idol, but normally as a compound word, as in "El Shaddai"), Everlasting Father (Strong's #1, "AB" figuratively used in a future or remote application as a Chief or Principal or as a father, but not THE FATHER) , Prince of Peace.

7 Of the increase of his government
(on The Earth) and of peace there shall be no end, on the throne of King David, and on his kingdom (on The Earth), to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from henceforth even forever. The zeal of YHVH of Hosts will perform this.

In Analyzing Isaiah 9:6-7, it is plain to see that Messiah Yahshua (or Christ) is NOT GOD. And that only a prejudiced translator would even try to force the word "El" to mean "The God of Creation." Since "El" already means mighty, why would the word "mighty" need to precede "El?" The proper translation should have been the "Mighty One" (of GOD would be understood).

It Seems Fishy that "PELE," which means a miracle or marvel or wonder, should suddenly be translated as Wonderful. The correct translation should have been "A Marvel" (of GOD would be understood).

In Verse Seven we can clearly see that Messiah Yahshua WILL SIT on the (Earthly) Throne of King David, and NOT on "The (Heavenly) Throne of YHVH." Messiah is never described as sitting on YHVH's Heavenly Throne, but he is described (in prophecy) as sitting on either the Throne of David or on the throne of his Glory (Praise, Honor or even his Reward). Presently Yahshua has not yet received his Earthly reward. Satan (source of Human Nature) presently sits on his throne as prince of this Earth, but Messiah Yahshua will remove the dragon (Human Nature) and its beast religions, followers and governments, and will take over as King of Kings on the Earthly throne of King David.

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 (Spirit),
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 lovingkindness 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!'
I will also appoint him my firstborn (Son), The highest of the kings of "The Earth."
28 I will keep my lovingkindness for him forevermore. My covenant will stand firm with him.
29 I will also make
his (King David's) seed (Messiah Yahshua) endure forever, And his throne (The Earth) as the days of heaven.

Ezekiel 34:17-26 (The True Relationship between YHVH and the Messiah)
17 As for you, O my flock
(Spiritual Israel), thus says the Lord YHVH: Behold, I judge between sheep and sheep, the rams and the male goats.
18 Seems it a small thing to you to have fed on the good pasture, but you must tread down with your feet the residue of your pasture? and to have drunk of the clear waters, but you must foul the residue with your feet?
19 As for my sheep, they eat that which you have trodden with your feet, and they drink that which you have fouled with your feet.
20 Therefore thus says the Lord YHVH to them: Behold, I, even I, will judge between the fat sheep and the lean sheep.
21 Because you thrust with side and with shoulder, and push all the diseased with your horns, until you have scattered them abroad;
22 therefore will I
(YHVH) save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between sheep and sheep.
23 I
(YHVH) will set up one shepherd (Messiah) over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant (King) David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd (through his physical seed/Messiah).
24 I, YHVH, will be their GOD, and my servant
(King) David prince among them; I, YHVH, have spoken it.
25 I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause evil animals to cease out of the land; and they shall dwell securely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.
26 I will make them and the places round about my hill a blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in its season; there shall be showers of blessing.

Was Messiah Worshipped as GOD
or as "King of Kings?"

Was the Messiah worshipped as GOD or a god?  Many Christians
(Christopagans) believe so, but is their belief justified, explicitly stated or assumed?  I hope the following  statements and verses can help you clear up the chaos and confusion that surrounds this unjustified belief whenever you encounter it and with whomever you encounter it.

Matthew 2:11
And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Miryam
(Mary) his mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts; gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

So what! Did the so called wise men worship Yahshua as God?  Absolutely Not!  They recognized that the baby Yahshua was the promised Messiah and seed of King David; therefore, they worshipped Yahshua as a human "King of Kings;" Not as GOD,  but as "The KING of Israel," and "Heir to the throne of David."

Jeremiah 23:5
Behold, the days come, saith the LORD YHVH, that I will raise unto
(King) David a righteous Branch, and a King shall reign and prosper, and shall execute judgment and justice in the earth.

Ezekiel 34:22-24
22Therefore will I
(YHVH) save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
23And I
(YHVH) will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed them, even my servant (King) David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
24And I the LORD YHVH will be their Eternal Father, and my servant
(King) David a prince among them; I the LORD YHVH have spoken it.

Ezekiel 37:24-25
(King) David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.
25And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my servant
(King) David shall be their prince for ever.

Hosea 3:5
Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the LORD YHVH their Eternal Father, and David their king; and shall fear the LORD YHVH and his goodness in
the latter days.

On the other hand, maybe Peter was a god too?
(Absolutely Not!)

Acts 10:25-26
25And as Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him, and fell down at his feet, and worshipped him.
26But Peter took him up, saying, Stand up; I myself am, ALSO, a man.

Do not be deceived, The Messiah is a created human King, and was never worshipped as YHVH or a trinity or bi-entity prior to the invention of Christianity by The Universal Roman Church.

Messiah does not yet sit on the Throne of his Glory


The Earthly Throne of King David

Matthew 25:31-33
31 "But when the Son of Man
(Messiah Yahshua) comes in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then (not before) will he sit on the throne of his glory.
32 Before him all the nations will be gathered, and he will separate them one from another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
33 He will set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

Matthew 19:28
28 Messiah Yahshua said to them, "Most assuredly I tell you, that you who have followed me
(my teachings and my example), in the regeneration (resurrection) when the Son of Man (Messiah) will sit on the throne of his glory (Strong's #1391, DOXA, Honor, Praise or even his Reward) , you also will sit on twelve thrones (of your own glory), judging the twelve tribes of Israel.

Luke 1:31-33
31 Behold, you will conceive in your womb, and bring forth a son, and will call his name Yahshua.
32 He will be great
(Mighty, Marvelous, a Counselor, a Chief), and will be called the (eldest or first born) Son of the Most High. The Lord GOD (YHVH) will give to him the (Earthly) throne of his father, (King) David,
33 and he will
(eventually) reign over the (Earthly) house of Jacob (Israel) forever. There will be no end of his (Earthly) kingdom."

YHVH's  "Plan of Salvation" will remove Satan (Human Nature) from the Earth, and establish Messiah Yahshua (and Righteousness) as the NEW RULER of the EARTH (The Promised Land).

The very best definition I can give you as the the power and existence of YHVH is simply this:

IF it were possible for YHVH to cease to exist,
then all things would, also, cease to exist!

Galatians 4:16
So then, have I become your enemy by telling you the truth?
