Was, and Is, Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ), God?

Now many of you will react to this question in a: What is he on about now? sort of way or in a state of incredulity or even nonplussed. You will probably answer: of course Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) is God; if He is not God then I, as a Christian, am still dead in my sins, for only God (total perfection) as a sacrifice would have been good enough or perfect enough to take away all the sins of mankind. It’s as simple as that, isn’t it?

Well you would think so, but the problem here is more complex than we realise, because if we take the subject of The Trinity as an example, there are thousands of people who are members of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and other similar cults and organisations like The Unitarians, that do not believe in The Trinity. These Jehovah’s Witnesses and Unitarian people, that do not believe in that pagan Egyptian deity, then change the nature of the Godhead to fit their non-trinitarian beliefs.

Now, in part, this for me, is all very fine as I do not believe in The Trinity either and if you read my series of articles entitled “Ogre gods” you will learn why. At the same time, you will also learn why I do not believe in a mono-god, better known as Monotheism, either. This is where I, and the JWs/Unitarians, part company. These people make the serious satanic error of replacing one phony god with another phony god.

I did cover this issue in my “Ogre god” series, but it doesn’t hurt to go over it again, so let’s turn to John 8:37-45:

John 8:37-45 (KJV) I know that ye are Abraham’s seed; but ye seek to kill me, because my Word hath no place in you. 38 I speak that which I have seen with my Father: and ye do that which ye have seen with your father. 39 They answered and said unto Him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you The Truth, which I have heard of God: this did not Abraham. 41 Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to Him, We be not born of fornication; we have one Father, even God. 42 Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of myself, but He sent me. 43 Why do ye not understand my speech? even because ye cannot hear my Word. 44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in The Truth, because there is no Truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. 45 And because I tell you The Truth, ye believe me not.

Here we can see quite plainly that Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) was telling the Canaanite Jews of His day that their belief was in vain as long as they believed in a god that did not include Him. Any deity that excludes Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) as God with God, is a mono-god deity and that is Monotheism.

The True Godhead consists of a Duality – Two Gods or the plural Elohim of Deuteronomy 6:4 – the Father God and Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ). The Canaanite Jews believed and still do believe in one god (monotheism) and in verse 44 we discover who this one god or mono-god is – “Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.” This rule applies to anyone who believes in one god (and this includes Muslims). It makes no difference whether it’s just one god or one god that’s three in one or one in three. Both these godly formats are of the Devil, and all that believe in them, believe in vain, they’re totally deceived and deluded.

If we return to the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Unitarians, who reject The Trinity and then replace The Trinity with a mono-god deity, they have literally jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire. Now JWs will counter with the futile argument: “We do believe in a ‘Jesus Christ’, but as a created being, not as God.” Here we can see and hear them condemn themselves out of their own mouths for, by reducing Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) into a created being, they are, by doing so, making Him no better than an angel and just another part of the creation. This is an evil and a wicked blasphemy of titanic proportions and renders everything else they teach and say, worthless and useless. Through this catastrophic error they disqualify themselves completely.

John 1:1 (KJV) In the beginning was The Word, and The Word was with God, and The Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by Him; and without Him was not any thing made that was made.

Revelation 19:12-13 (KJV) His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns; and He had a name written, that no man knew, but He Himself. 13 And He was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and His name is called The Word of God.

Note, Yashua Messiah’s (The Lord Jesus Christ’s) name is called The Word of God. Notice, too, in the above five verses we can see concrete proof and evidence that Yashua Messiah (The Lord Jesus Christ) is God and was God with God in the beginning, before the creation because He was The Creator, but He was not part of a Trinity. Which John confirms for us here:

1 John 2:22-24 (KJV) Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is anti-Christ, that denieth The Father and The Son. 23 Whosoever denieth The Son, the same hath not The Father: 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in The Son, and in The Father.

Notice, ye shall continue in THE SON and THE FATHER and, by default, not continue in The Trinity.

Yashua Messiah was also known as Melchizedec in the Old Testament. Melchizedec was The King of Salem which means King of Peace and he was also known as the King of Righteousness.

Hebrews 7:1-3 (KJV) For this Melchisedec, King of Salem, Priest of The Most High God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him; 2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of Righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of Peace; 3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a Priest continually.

Here we can plainly see that Yashua Messiah was without father, without mother, without descent and having no beginning of days nor end of life. Now compare these verses with John 1:1-3 above.

Melchizedec and Yashua Messiah are one and the same man. Notice, too, He blesses Abraham; who but God could bless Abraham?

We need to understand that only God could carry these titles, no one else for no created being is capable of bringing peace, let alone being The King of Peace. The same applies to righteousness (justice), how could any created being be the King of Righteousness? Many angels went astray and became demons so they’re fallible. Mankind and hu-mankind are violent and corrupt in all their ways. I hope, now, you can see that to say Yashua Messiah was or is a created being is a 24 carat blasphemy.

Furthermore, and just to counter any possible arguments, the last part of Hebrews 7:3 says “but MADE like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.” This is not saying Yashua Messiah was created, it’s saying that He was MADE FLESH to become a man, The Son of Man, having given up His pure Spiritual perfection and supreme Godly position in order to do so.

As a penultimate point, I will use Matthew 1:23:

Matthew 1:23 (KJV) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

And from The Aramaic Peshitta translation:

Matthew 1:23 (Aramaic Peshitta) Behold, a virgin will conceive and give birth to a Son, and they will call His name Emmanuel, which is interpreted, our God is with us.

God is with us, OUR GOD and Creator, not a fake and blasphemous created god, is with us.

Finally, here are three clinchers:

Number 1)

John 5:37 (KJV) And The Father Himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard His voice at any time, nor seen His shape. (Emphasis mine)

OK, so if no one up until that point in history, that is, in the early first century had ever seen or heard The Father who was The God of the Old Testament? Who was it that said: “Let US make man in OUR IMAGE and in OUR LIKENESS,” if no one had ever seen or heard The Father? Who was it that spoke with Adam in The Garden if no one had ever seen or heard The Father? Who was it that spoke with Abraham and Moses if no one had ever seen or heard The Father?? Answer – Yashua Messiah the God of the Old Testament.

Number 2)

John 8:58 (KJV) Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am. (Emphasis mine)

Here in this verse we can see Yashua Messiah telling His audience in no uncertain terms who He was and is. So much so the Pharisees and Sadducees later on made it very plain here:

Number 3)

John 10:33 (KJV) The Jews answered Him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. (Emphasis mine)

There we are – The Canaanite Jews fully understood who Yashua Messiah was and what He was telling them!!!

However, in direct contrast, I always find it amazing how modern Judaising mongrel dog naysayers, who deny Yashua Messiah’s Godship, disagree with their Pharisee Canaanite Jew, Judaising dog masters. Funny old world isn’t it?

Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) WAS AND IS GOD – PERIOD!!!

  1. Grace to you bro Charles,

    I’ve read the book of Hebrew from chapter 1 to 2 multiple times to grasp this great mystery that is hidden in these Holy Scriptures. My mind is all over the place because I’m getting the revelation of Who this Jesus Christ is more and more. Now I can see that we’re brethren of the Lord Jesus Christ and sons of the Father.

    Nonetheless, I’ve heard that we are the bride of Christ? How can we be his bride and brethren at the same time?

    Hebrew 2 also says that Jesus was elevated higher then the rest of the Angles because His deeds to die for us pleased God. Does that mean that the Lord Jesus Christ was on the same level as the angles until He decided to taste death?

    Please I would love to hear your view of the book of Hebrew 1 and 2

    • Hi Seraphin,

      Yes some powerful stuff in those two chapters.

      Primarily we are brothers and sisters of Yashua Messiah as well as His friends. The Father is building a family that will never cease growing in number – just as the universe will never cease expanding.

      The bride of Christ analogy is a direct link to the Twelve Tribes of Israel as mentioned in Revelation with the woman who gave birth to the Man child.

      Revelation 12:1 (KJV) And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a Crown of Twelve Stars:

      The woman is Sarah and The Twelve Stars are The Twelve Tribes of Israel from whom Yashua Messiah is descended – the Man child.

      Revelation 12:5 (KJV) And she brought forth a Man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His Throne.

      However, as we know Ancient Israel played the harlot and was an unfaithful bride/wife to God her husband (Yashua Messiah) with her rampant satanic idolatry to Molech (child sacrifice in the fire). Some liken this to modern day abortions.

      This unfaithfulness is further portrayed graphically by the Prophet Hosea who was told by God (Yashua Messiah) to go and marry a whore so that the unfaithful wife analogy of whoring Israel could be brought to life and lived out personally in Hosea’s life as a living example.

      Hosea 1:2 (KJV) The beginning of The Word of The LORD by Hosea. And The LORD said to Hosea, Go, take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from The LORD.

      Romans 11:26 (KJV) And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

      The above verse is a reference to both resurrections when ALL Israel, by then, will be saved along with all of mankind.

      However in the first resurrection the saints will be wearing metaphorical unspotted bridal gowns having washed their gowns in His blood making them spotless and perfect through Baptism – the gifting of The Holy Spirit and living under His Grace.

      These Bride references are to show us that the unfaithful bride Israel will be reconciled to The Father through a marriage to His Son.

      The same opportunity applies to those who are not of Israel they having been grafted into the Israelite bush – yet another analogy.

      Romans 11:23-24 (KJV) And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again. 24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?

      This, in a rough outline, shows the reason for the bride analogy.

      In the parable of the Ten Bridesmaids the marriage scene appears again only this time the analogy is more about church pastors and shepherds or those responsible for looking after the sheep. The bride doesn’t actually get mentioned in that parable.

      Yashua Messiah, who created the angels, was made LOWER than the angels by becoming FLESH. Likewise we as saints are LOWER than the angels and will remain LOWER until we are resurrected as Spirit beings in the first resurrection. We will then judge (evaluate) the angels.

      Hebrews 1:2 (KJV) Hath in these last days spoken unto us by His Son, whom He hath appointed Heir of all things, by whom also He made the worlds;

      Yashua Messiah is the Heir of ALL THINGS – just like a billionaire’s son would inherit his father’s fortune only a zillion times greater in Yashua Messiah’s case – He will inherit EVERYTHING.

      • Thank you for clarifying.

        In Hebrew 1:8 But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy Kingdom.

        Is that the Father speaking, calling the Son ( God)?

        How can people not see the Godhead is dual? every scripture I read proves it more and more, and I just don’t know why I didn’t see this my entire life?

        Thinking the Father was the same Person as the Son, I’m happy the veil has been lifted up.

      • Yes, as pointed out in Adam Clarke’s Commentary, Hebrews 1:8 was taken by the author of Hebrews from Psalm 45:6-7:

        Psalm 45:6-7 (KJV) Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: The Sceptre (Royalty) of Thy Kingdom is a right Sceptre. 7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath Anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows. (Brackets mine)

        Once again the word ‘God’ in verse 6 is translated from the Hebrew plural ‘Elohim’ so in Truth it should say: “Thy Throne O Godhead is for ever and ever.”

        When The Psalms were written Yashua Messiah was still God with God, yet at the same time the author of The Psalm was here prophesying the future when The Father would Anoint The Son as King of kings and Lord of lords.

        The Sceptre (Royalty) of course being the Sceptre (Royalty) of Judah as promised by Jacob/Israel to his son Judah as his blessing. Joseph was blessed with the Birthright – see Genesis 48.

        Genesis 49:10 (KJV) The Sceptre (Royalty) shall not depart from Judah (his seed), nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. (Brackets mine)

        I am glad that the veil has been lifted.

  2. Wonderful, I then came to my own conclusion that Lucifer, wanted the position of the Son. I can see a little rivalry going on here. The Son was made heir of all that the Father had, but the Son was willing to pay the price. I would conclude that Lucifer didn’t want to be made lower than the rest of the angles for the suffering of death. That’s the way I see it.

    I’m starting to paint a picture of what may had really happened and it seems like the story is so intense. Makes me want to learn more about this Jesus Christ .

    • Thanks, but don’t forget that Lucifer doesn’t exist and was created by Rome as a distraction so that the focus was drawn away from Cain/Canaan and his offspring which in turn was caused by Adam and Eve’s sin in The Garden.

      In effect The Serpent or Satan used Adam and Eve as pawns in his plans and fed Adam with rebellious thoughts towards his Creator – “I will be like the Most High” etc.

      This behaviour is rampant within mankind (Adam’s sons) today with their trust in technology and science and their unanimous denial of the existence of God. THEY, as Satan’s dupes, have set themselves up as The Most High.

  3. Shalom bro Charles,

    I would like to know if you’ve heard of William Marion Branham ? I’ll share some quotes from his sermons.

    • Hi Seraphin,

      I have received your comments in full re Branham and I do not agree with his teaching. I have also gone head to head with his ‘disciples’ in the past – many years ago now, so I cannot remember what the topic was. Needlesstosay I cannot allow his errors on my blog.

      Suffice it to say Yashua Messiah was NEVER two people. He was the FIRST and ONLY begotten of The Father and was without sin all of His life, both before Baptism and after – The unblemished Lamb of God.

      Even before He was Baptised He said: “I must be about my Father’s business.”

      However, He was not identifiable to The Devil until He was Baptised. Herod slew all the infants because He was not identifiable. Once gifted with The Holy Spirit, The Devil then knew who He was and then tempted Him.

      Re the two people, WE become two people 1) a dead body of sin and 2) a new creation born anew by The Holy Spirit, but not Yashua Messiah, He was physically born of The Father as well a Spiritually born of The Father – unlike no other – the first and only begotten of The Father. I trust that explains it.

    • From Branhamism/William Branham:

      “Although denying he was a believer in the “oneness” doctrine, Branham had his own form of “oneness” teaching that defined God as one person who manifested Himself as three different “attributes”: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”

      Do not be deceived by this man’s false teachings.

      Yes The Father indwelled Yashua Messiah but Yashua Messiah also indwelled The Father. Are you going to say The Father is two beings also?

      They were and are two distinct Spiritual Beings that came to a special arrangement when Yashua Messiah became flesh. If we say Yashua Messiah was two beings then which one died on the stake? No Yashua Messiah had the indwelling of The Holy Spirit through which The Father indwelled Him and communicated with Him. There is a danger here of Branham’s One God error.

      John 14:10-11 (KJV) Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake.

  4. Oh my my my, for so many years I always had my doubts, but there was nothing out there that proved it otherwise until I came to.your blog.

    I have many things I would like to.discuss with you. I’m 27 years old, and all my life braham teaching is all I knew, until I started ministering 3 years ago. I began to see things differently, few weeks ago I was confronted as to why all my sermons hardly ever mentioned Braham, and I said because I wasn’t inspired to. God had laid other things on my heart to share with the people. It’s difficult being a branham follower, if you don’t preach what he preached then you’re not a believer.

    I’m a very hard man to persuade or intimidate, I will keep preaching the true word.

    Please let me have you email I would love to discuss more with you.

    • Question if I may? Why are you following a man? Read this and internalise what Paul was dealing with here in Corinth:

      1 Corinthians 1:11-13 (KJV) For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. 12 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ. 13 Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul?

      Is Christ divided? was Branham or Brother Charles crucified for you? or were you Baptised in the name of Branham or Brother Charles?

  5. Understand that I was very naive about my Christian walk until I.was called into the ministry. That’s when I started having major questions about his teaching. Most of his.followers make it really difficult for others to accept Christ. I then begin to preach only from the Scriptures and not his teachings. Some old time followers in the congregation started questioning my teachings because I would quote him.

    While seeking the truth for over few years now, I finally come across your blog, that actually teache the Holy Scriptures. I don’t believe the devil directed me your way, it was the Lord Jesus Christ.

    Many of the youth in the church and some of the young adults are seeking the same truth that has been revealed to me. My desire is to learn more, because many of them have been preached the same thing for so many years, and that veil needs to be removed.

    Many brahamist, believe he was Elijah the prophet of Malachi 4. In fact when he passed on,they kept his body for many.days believing that he was going to resurrect. That sounds like some occult stuff to me. I’ve always had my doubts, but I needed to be well equipped before confronting many of those in the church that have been brainwashed.

    I’m hoping to study more with.you as I grow spiritually.

    God bless

    • Oh we all make mistakes, it’s all part of the learning curve – my mistakes were threefold: 1) Immediately after my calling I tried to return to the church of my childhood – The Church of England. 2) When I realised they had not changed in the 25 years I had been absent and were just as useless as they always had been I then succombed to Armstrong’s firebrand teaching via The Plain Truth magazine. 3) After leaving WCG I returned yet again to mainstream and tried ALL the denominations only to find that I did not fit in with any of them, resulting in me leaving the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion altogether and have never looked back.

      Re Elijah they used to say the same thing about Herbert W. Armstrong in The Worldwide Church of God – all hogwash of course.

      I have not studied the subject in depth, as yet, but as far as I know John The Baptist was the second and last Elijah and no other Elijah is prophesied. He was the last Prophet too.

      Matthew 11:13 (KJV) For all The Prophets and The Law prophesied until John.

      Luke 16:16 (KJV) The Law and The Prophets were until John: since that time The Kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

      Thanks for your comment contributions.

      • Shalom,
        Upon our last conversation about WMB, I’ve done more research and found out many things he preached did not aligned with the scriptures. When I confronted ministers in the church, all the could do is justify his mistakes. They said i was blaspheming the prophet. Well last i checked he wasn’t the Holy Ghost.

        This so called message is a cult, and they make the salvation that Christ has given us something not desirable. There are so many contradictions about all the visions, and visitations from angels of the Lord. All his healing services did not aligned with scriptures, and all seem fishy, but yet his followers fear his teachings more than the Bible.

        I recently read a book by Legend Of The Fall by Peter M. Duyzer, and I was shocked at the many things that I read.

        I’m no longer part of the message, but only relying on the Holy Ghost to direct me. People in the church said I have backslid, which amazes me because I’ve decided to only follow what the scriptures says.

        I will keep on praying for God to help thru this new change, because my own family are turning their back on me, and refuse to see the errors within his sermons.

        I would love to know if you have anything pertaining to WMB that you would like to share with me.

        May God bless you

      • Hi Seraphin,

        The three main flaws, without delving any further into what his followers say, are 1) Branham’s Pentecostal Oneness teaching when John makes it plain in 1 John 2 that we should continue in the Father AND The Son – a Duality Godhead.

        1 John 2:23-24 (KJV) Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. 24 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father.

        2) That he was a prophet when Scripture clearly states that John the Baptist was the last prophet. 3) His followers elevating him up as someone to be followed when Paul clearly states this is a blasphemy.

        Moreover, people gifted with The Holy Spirit may have the gift of prophecy but that does not make them prophets.

        Having said all that, he was correct about Baptism being into Yahsua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name alone.

        Best regards

        Brother Charles
