God with us came into this world, leaving his glory and splendor with his Holy Father God (Joh 17:5 NKJV), being born of a young woman who had known no man. It was a miracle inception made possible when the Holy Spirit of God overshadowed the young woman who had known no man. The young woman who had known no man was with child of The Holy Ghost (Isa 7:14 TNK; Luk 1: 34, 35 NKJV). The GOD-man named Yeshua Heb or Ies0us Gr or Jesus Eng, who was the ETERNAL-WORD (“LOGOS” John 1:1 KJV http://biblehub.com/greek/logos_3056.htm ) of ELOHIM (plural form of “El” or “Eloah”, Genesis 1:1 BHT OT http://biblehub.com/hebrew/elohim_430.htm ), the name or function He was known by before taking on human flesh. He died for our sins, being pressed to the point of crushing by the weight of our sins onto a rugged cross, becoming our guilt offering, and making intercession for sinners Isa 53: 1- 54:1 TNK).
1 “Who can believe what we have heard? Upon whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?
2 For he has grown, by His favor, like a tree crown, Like a tree trunk out of arid ground. He had no form or beauty, that we should look at him: No charm, that we should find him pleasing.
3 He was despised, shunned by men, A man of suffering, familiar with disease. As one who hid his face from us, He was despised, we held him of no account.
4 Yet it was our sickness that he was bearing, Our suffering that he endured. We accounted him plagued, Smitten and afflicted by God;
5 But he was wounded because of our sins, Crushed because of our iniquities. He bore the chastisement that made us whole, And by his bruises we were healed.
6 We all went astray like sheep, Each going his own way; And the LORD visited upon him The guilt of all of us.”
7 He was maltreated, yet he was submissive, He did not open his mouth; Like a sheep being led to slaughter, Like a ewe, dumb before those who shear her, He did not open his mouth.
8 By oppressive judgment he was taken away, Who could describe his abode? For he was cut off from the land of the living Through the sin of my people, who deserved the punishment.
9 And his grave was set among the wicked, And with the rich, in his death — Though he had done no injustice And had spoken no falsehood.
10 But the LORD chose to crush him by disease, That, if he made himself an offering for guilt (http://biblehub.com/hebrew/asham_817.htm ), He might see offspring and have long life, And that through him the LORD’s purpose might prosper.
11 Out of his anguish he shall see it; He shall enjoy it to the full through his devotion. “My righteous servant makes the many righteous, It is their punishment that he bears;
12 Assuredly, I will give him the many as his portion, He shall receive the multitude as his spoil. For he exposed himself to death And was numbered among the sinners, Whereas he bore the guilt of the many And made intercession for sinners.”
His death was not a human sacrifice because he gave his perfect sinless divine life blood willingly (John 10:15, 17 NKJV). He was God pitched in a tent of human flesh. The word “dwelt” used in the NKJV in John 1:14 is the Greek word “skenoo” and means to dwell as in a tent http://biblehub.com/greek/4637.htm . His blood did not come from humankind. His blood came from his Holy Father God. Yeshua went to hell after he died (Eph 4:9 ). He preached to the spirits in prison while there (1 Pet 3:18,19,20). He resurrected on the third day (Psa 16:10; Mat 12:40; 16:21; John 2:19, 21). He was seen by his disciples and over 500 of his countrymen at once after he resurrected (1 Cor 15:5,6). He ascended to his Holy Father God untouched and pure (John 20:17). He entered into his Holy Father God’s temple as high priest and offered himself, once for all time, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty (Heb 7:21- 8:3). And He stands to make intercession for us (Acts 7:55,56; Heb 7:25).
19 for the law made nothing perfect; on the other hand, there is the bringing in of a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
20 And inasmuch as He was not made priest without an oath
21 (for they have become priests without an oath, but He with an oath by Him who said to Him: “The LORD has sworn And will not relent,`You are a priest forever According to the order of Melchizedek ‘ “),
22 by so much more Jesus has become a surety of a better covenant.
23 Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing.
24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood.
25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;
27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
28 For the law appoints as high priests men who have weakness, but the word of the oath, which came after the law, appoints the Son who has been perfected forever.
8:1 Now this is the main point of the things we are saying: We have such a High Priest, who is seated at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in the heavens,
2 a Minister of the sanctuary and of the true tabernacle which the Lord erected, and not man.
It is God’s desire to restore a broken relationship between himself and humanity. God created humankind perfect and innocent but somewhere and at sometime humankind went their own way and did not want God in their lives. That is obvious and there are many instances of short comings and wrong doings in the history of humankind. However, God The Creator had a plan to save humanity from a fallen state and restore it back to perfection as he intended from the beginning of creation.
The objective of this blog is to unravel the plan of salvation. It starts in the book of the generations in chapter 3 at verse 15.
This is the first prophecy in the book of the Generations. Genesis 3:15 in the Tanakh reads “I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your offspring and hers; They shall strike at your head, And you shall strike at their heel.” It is of the utmost importance to establish that the Messiah is being prophesied here to come through the woman.
