Yeshua said He is “the Way, the Truth and the Life: no man comes to the Father except through (or by) Me” (John 14:6). Framed another way, that thought can also be stated, My Life is the only Way Truth (YaHoVeH) is exampled and no man can find any Way to the Truth of the Father,Who is the Source of Life, except by incorporating the Virtue found in the example of My Life into his own.
The Greek word translated as the English “Lord” is kyrios which means “supreme in authority”. Yeshua said in John 14:28 that YaHoVeH was “greater” than He was and, while YaHoVeH has given Yeshua all authority to complete the task He was given, Paul says it is plain that YaHoVeH is excepted from that authority. The English word “God” in Hebrews 1:8 is translated from the Greek word theos whose definition is “a god or goddess, a general name given to deities or divinities”. But, since the Greeks worshiped multiple deities, we see this cultural influence overwriting the translation of the Hebrew name, elohim (also translated as “God” in the quoted verse from Psalm 45:6) which also means, “gods in the ordinary sense; but also rulers, judges, divine ones.”
So, the real question to be asked becomes, “Is Yeshua divine?” The simple answer to that question is “Yes” – but, with a caveat. The divinity of Yeshua is upheld – it is the concept of divinity itself that is being questioned. What is interesting to note is that the English word “divinity” is nowhere to be found in scripture and the Greek word theios (translated as the English “divine”) is only found in two passages in the Messianic Writings (NT) and one of those is actually translated as “Godhead” which we found in a previous article not to exist. One would think that a doctrine as intrinsic to Christianity as the divinity of Yeshua would be given more substance among these Hebrew authors. The one passage in 1Peter 1:3-4 that translates this Greek word properly speaks of the divine nature of YaHoVeH – not Yeshua. Yeshua became One with the Father of Life because He kept the Words of His Father (John 8:54-55). Does this mean that, in being one with the Father, Yeshua replaces YaHoVeH as the Only One True God of Israel? The scripture says – no (see who is the Word).
The Gospel of John, Jesus’ seventh sign, part 11
Jesus had performed seven specific signs to manifest the glory of God in the earth, yet only a few truly believed in Him. So John quotes Isaiah 53:1, which leads into the important Old Testament messianic passage about “The Suffering Servant.” Though it was prophesied more than 700 years ago that the Messiah would be beaten and would die as the Lamb of God, no one could comprehend such a Messiah since the prophecy was first given.
The Gospel of John, Jesus' seventh sign, Part 12
The twelfth chapter of John completes Jesus’ public ministry insofar as teaching is concerned. The stage was thereby set for the religious leaders to crucify Him and for Judas to betray Him into their hands. When evening came, Jesus met with the disciples for the “Last Supper.”
The Gospel of John, Jesus' seventh sign, Part 13
Peter was unaware of the prophetic significance of Jesus’ actions, though obviously Jesus knew precisely what He was doing. No doubt Peter saw Jesus’ action as the work of a maidservant, an act of humility. In a time and place where men walked on hot, dusty roads, it was common courtesy to wash the feet of an arriving guest.
Paths of Old – Ancient Paths
Jeremiah 6:16; 18:15; Acts 15:21
“Thus said יהוה (Yahweh), “Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and find rest for yourselves….” (Jeremiah 6:16)
“But My people have forgotten Me, they have burned incense to what is false, and they have stumbled from their ways, from the ancient paths, to walk in bypaths and not on a highway.” (Jeremiah 18:15)
Regular public reading of the Torah was introduced by Ezra the Scribe after the return of the Jewish people from their Babylonian captivity (c. 537 BCE), as described in the Book of Nehemiah 8. In the modern era, adherents of Orthodox Judaism practice Torah reading according to a set procedure they believe has remained unchanged in the two thousand years since the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 CE).
“For from ancient generations Mosheh has, in every city, those proclaiming him – being read in the congregations every Sabbath.” (Acts 15:21)

THE AHRIMAN GATE (PART 23)—PANDEMONIUM’S ENGINE
A probing force pressed tightly against the dark side of the Ahriman Gate as demons, large and small, gargoylian and beautiful, drew swords and held them aloft. Strange, ancient machines, designed for supernatural warfare, floated behind the wicked troops inside the timeless cavity. With unified depravity unknown to men, the abysmal life forms inched the dreadful mechanisms forward. Their determination was as deep and as immutable as the well that had spawned them.
THE AHRIMAN GATE (PART 24)—APOLLYON
Having stepped through the gigantic steel gates into the access tunnel, then carefully to one side of the railway, Stark paused, troubled by the appearance of the horizontal shaft extending before him. Though the corridor had been fashioned to match the outer hall, darkness as thick and as black as nurtured coal ebbed around him. This was unexpected.
Turning, he glanced at the ceiling. A maintenance bulb hung sideways on a conduit fastened to a cracked and tar-coated timber. The crooked light dangling from it painted the gang’s silhouette against the floor and up one wall as fish-eyed and angry, like uninvited ghouls standing bent and impatient for the group to move along. Halfway between it and the darkness, a tiny waterfall dripped lazily from a new crack in the wall. A murky pool formed beneath it on the uneven floor, from which a cluster of rocks emerged in a long crooked line, like the bony finger of a lost adventurer beckoning them forward into the cursed unknown.
THE AHRIMAN GATE (PART 25)—TERRIFYING REPTILIAN
Quetzalcoatl’s army slithered from beneath the surface of Mars, along the War Planet’s canals into the ancient City Center. Imprisoned since the great conflict with Michael the archangel, the spirits were anxious for freedom and hungry for human blood.
Millions of miles beneath them, the demons at the edge of Kosmos were likewise growing impatient. Along the mouth of the Ahriman Gate, they pried, challenged, searched for weaknesses in the angelic barrier, while behind them, saucer-shaped objects with hieroglyphic markings along their rims formed a massive armada, pushing against Earth’s atmosphere to get to the human race.
Yet for now the heavenly host held them—galvanized by the intercessory group at Mt. Hood Evangelical Seminary and by the other “suddenly burdened” prayer warriors on their knees around the globe.
Secular Writers Examine The Sumerian King List, Find Origin Of “Those Who Descended From Heaven” As Nephilim Kings Followed By The Biblical Flood
Out of the many incredible artifacts that have been recovered from sites in Iraq where flourishing Sumerian cities once stood, few have been more intriguing than the Sumerian King List. An ancient manuscript originally recorded in the Sumerian language, the Sumerian King List is a register of the kings of Sumer (ancient southern Iraq) from Sumerian and neighboring dynasties. The list is of immense value because it reflects very old traditions while at the same time providing an important chronological framework relating to the different periods of kingship in Sumeria. It even demonstrates remarkable parallels to accounts in Genesis. The Sumerian King List begins with the very origin of kingship, which is seen as a divine institution: “the kingship had descended from heaven.” The rulers in the earliest dynasties are represented as reigning fantastically long periods. Some of the rulers mentioned in the early list, such as Etana, Lugal-banda and Gilgamesh, are legendary figures whose heroic feats are subjects of a series of Sumerian and Babylonian narrative compositions. The early list names eight kings with a total of 241,200 years from the time when kingship “descended from heaven” to the time when “the Flood” swept over the land and once more “the kingship was lowered from heaven” after the Flood…
Preparing The Way For Antichrist? Civil Unrest Set To Surge Worldwide
Soaring food, energy, and shelter inflation have led to what could be a new era of civil unrest worldwide. Pockets of unrest have been observed in Sri Lanka, Peru, Kenya, Ecuador, Iran, and Europe. New research forecasts a broader wave of discontent is just ahead.
Earlier this year, Rockefeller Foundation President Rajiv warned that a “massive, immediate food crisis” is nearing. The UN said this summer that the world is “marching towards starvation” with an increased likelihood of civil unrest and political violence.
Making sense of the impending global turmoil is Verisk Maplecroft, a UK-based risk consulting and intelligence firm. They have just published an updated version of the Civil Unrest Index (CUI), covering seven years of data, showing the last quarter saw the most countries ever since the index was created move higher in civil unrest risks (101 of the 198 countries tracked by the firm saw increased risks of civil unrest).
