Yeshua (Jesus) is God.  Not only do most agree with this but most preach it to others too.  Do you really completely understand it?  I do not, but I can understand a little more deeply thanks to a lot of what is written in The Old Testament.

Nobody can see The Father and live <Ref. Ex 33:20>.  How can this be true?  The Old Testament is wrought with examples of men seeing God.  In this article, we will explore why.

The reason that some men have seen God, even though no man can see God, is because God is a multifaceted being.  God The Father passed by Moses and Moses saw His trail, like a comet’s.  This “passing by” caused Moses’ presence to terrify the Israelites.  Hear this: The presence of a man who caught the tail end of God’s glory passing by him caused a whole nation of people to be terrified at that man.  We aren’t seeing YHVH.  We are just seeing a person who caught a glimpse of YHVH out of the corner of their eye!  One time!

This is the closest any man has come to seeing God The Father in The Bible.  Moses was a man, but it was Yeshua who was living inside of him that caused him to live the way He did.  How can we know that Yeshua was existent before Yeshua was born?  Because no man can see God and live.  Yeshua is and has been active in the lives of men since the very very beginning.  Him being born and dying was not the beginning of Yeshua. {He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. 1 Peter 1:20}

  1. Yeshua appeared before Joshua prior to the battle of Jericho.
  2. Yeshua appeared to Isaiah while the seraphim shook the doorposts and His train filled the temple.  They sang of His glory.
  3. Yeshua commanded the angel that fed John a scroll that tasted like honey but became bitter in his belly.
  4. Yeshua gave us The Torah through Moses.
  5. When Moses was in the habit of meeting with God face-to-face, outside of the tent of meeting while the people watched, it was Yeshua He met with and spoke to “as one friend speaks to another”. (50/50 chance here that it was Yeshua or The Holy Spirit) (Or could be YHVH within the cloud, but not seen, only heard.  Yeshua’s Father’s voice could destroy anything, so maybe not as likely.)
  6. Yeshua is God
  7. When David was writing a Psalm and He wrote {My Lord said to His Lord}, I think that He was saying {Yeshua said to Yaweh.}

The first verse of Psalm 110 reads:

{The Lord says to My Lord:

“Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet.”}

Do you see that?  It is one of those things that makes life full of everything good:   {YHVH says to Yeshua.}  After understanding how “GOD” Yeshua actually is, go back and read all of that Psalm.  It is as neat as the book shelves at a library. (Psalms 110)


The entire Bible is undeniable truth; Further, The Bible supports itself, never correcting itself.  There is a scripture that tells us that no man can see God and live yet here are the scriptures that describe each and every event of man seeing God and living:

Revelation 10:10

{And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.} (Bitter Sweet)

Isaiah 6

{In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also The Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and His train filled the temple.}

 

Joshua 5

{And it came to pass, when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted up his eyes and looked, and, behold, there stood A Man over against him with His sword drawn in His hand: and Joshua went unto Him, and said unto Him, “Art Thou for us, or for our adversaries?”

And He said, “Nay; but as Captain Of The Host Of The Lord am I now come.” And Joshua fell on his face to the earth, and did worship, and said unto Him, What saith My Lord unto His servant?

And The Captain of The Lord‘s Host said unto Joshua, “Loose thy shoe from off thy foot; for the place whereon thou standest is holy. And Joshua did so.”} (Feet and the Gospel)

The Captain Of The Lord’s Army is Yeshua.  Here are some clues that lead us to that conclusion:  Anytime you here about angels showing up in scripture, men tend to fall out, poop in their pants, puke up their guts, and they end up flat on their faces.  When that happens the angels always immediately look left to right, shifting uncomfortably to ensure God isn’t watching before they pick the man up, instructing the person to get on their feet and never to bow to them or their like again.  Then they say, “Do not fear” (I know I am awesome and scary because you are so vile, and my goodness makes you uncomfortable, but contain yourself for goodness sake) followed by Their message.  Contrary to this, you never hear God tell a man not to worship Him.  Also, God rightly accepts our worship as opposed to shunning it.

In the instance of Yeshua before Joshua, he is not instructed to get up.  The worship is welcomed.  Thus, it is not an angel.  I’m sure God can take the form of an angel if He wishes, but in this case He took the form of a man, and when He was worshiped Yeshua did not stop Him.  Yeshua is God.  He has been around from the beginning.

Deuteronomy 11:18

{Therefore shall ye lay up these My words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.}

Yeshua had told Moses to tell the people to bind His words into their hearts.  The idea here is that those words in the brackets are words Moses wrote, but he wrote them after Yeshua told them to him.

Jeremiah 32:39
{And I (YHVH) will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear Me (YHVH) always, for their own good and for the good of their children after them.}

In this case I believe that the “I” and “Me” are The Father, because He is speaking of The Way that He will give them.  The Way is Yeshua.  In the spirit of their separateness  this describes The Father speaking of His Son’s purpose.

2 John 1:6

{And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments (Yeshua’s).  This is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, that you should walk in it.}

Hebrews 1

{He has spoken to us by His Son, Whom He appointed Heir Of All Things, and through Whom also He made the universe.}

Read that last one again:  {through Whom also He made the universe.}

Here it is again with the Whom is Whom.

{(YHVH) has spoken unto us by (Yeshua), Whom (YHVH) appointed Heir Of All Things , and through (Yeshua), (YHVH) made the universe.}

{In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.}

Yeshua created the universe under God’s command!  It is Yeshua’s hands that did the creating.  Yeshua created man and woman, all the stars, the seas and land and all that is in them!  Because of Him everything exists, by Him everything is held together, and for Him everything in existence is in existence.  He has been around from the beginning.  Yeshua created the universe.
