Q. Country Unknown: Shalom chaverim, I visit your web site since now two weeks and
hear many from your "teaching". There is many things to hear and a
very good presentation from you and your wife.
I am an Israelite and have turned to the Torah truth since many
years. I hear you spelling name in their hebrew origins, and
proclaiming from time to time the name of our heavenly Father and
from our Master in their Hebrew origin, which is right so. Please
look at this mail in the spirit of love and not a critic. there is
things I don't understand and may be you haven't see it from these
As an Israelite, I have been many years in christianity until YaHWeh
call me back to the Torah. Today I know that there is no other name
under heaven by which man can be saved: Yahushua / Yeshua the man
from Nazareth. My question to you brother is why after calling your
web site: tsiyon, using "ts" for the letter "tzade", having yourself
an hebrew name, why do you keep talking about "jesus", the "Lord"
and many other pagans terms? Please once again my concern is to
understand. If it is because you are talking to "christians", why
don't you take the opportunity to teach them the "TRUE NAME". If you
speak to messianics, I think they should know about the name, so
there is no needs to use pagans names. I would be really grateful to
know your position on my questions.
A. We are glad to have you with us brother! We
always appreciate feedback from scattered Israel. Thanks for your
question. I think as you listen to our programs you will notice that
most of them use the Hebrew names for Y'shua and YHWH exclusively.
a few programs in which we are especially reaching out to Christians
in which we read from translations of Scripture that use "Jesus"
instead of Y'shua. The reason we do this is that Christians trust
these translations, such as the King James Bible, for example. We
want them to see the truth directly from the Bible they are used to
using. This has been very effective.
Once these folks start
looking into the truth we present from their own Bible pretty soon
they are asking us why we use the Hebrew Names. Then, pretty soon,
they are using them too. We have found that people move along in
steps. You can't push everything at once at people because if you do
it is too much and they tune you out. That is why this approach is
part of out teaching style.
As to the word "Lord" we do not use this word to replace the Names.
However, Y'shua is my Lord in the normal meaning of that word. I
call Him Lord at times acknowledging His Lordship in my life.
Is Y'shua God?
USA: I have three questions [regarding another Torah teacher] I found
1) is Yeshua God? (not according to the other teacher, but A god, Hashem's manifesting ability)
A. The verse you
are referring to is John 1:1-3 as follows:
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
through him. Without him was not anything made that has been
made. John 1:1
Note that the Word
already "was in the beginning." That means the Word is not a
created being but has always existed.
Note that the Word
was "with God" - to be "with God" means the Word is an
individual Person [the Son] in fellowship with [Father] God.
Note that the Word
"was God." There is no "a" here as in "was a god." That is not
consistent with the Greek text at all. The verse is saying that
the Word was THE God! One translation is "what the Word was God was"
- in other words, the Word shares exactly the same divine nature
(godhood) as the Father making Him equally God with the Father.
2) who created the
earth & beings? The Father? or Yeshua? or both? (according to this
other teacher it is Hashem who created everything, not Yeshua)
A. Note the verse
above. "All things were made through him [the Word]. Without him was not
anything made that has been made."
for the Name YHWH) is the family Name of the Father and the Son. It
is the Son's Name also. Both were involved in the Creation. "Let
make Man in Our image."
3) who are my
praises/worship supposed to go to? Yeshua or the Father? or both?
(according to this other teacher ..we are to worship the King - Hashem, not
Yeshua, that Yeshua is to direct our worship to Hashem)
A. Note this verse:
That all may honor
the Son, just as they honor the Father. He who doesn’t honor the Son
doesn’t honor the Father who sent him. John 5:23
To worship the Son
is to worship the Father - there is no difference according to the
He believes that
the believers should be keeping Torah, and that the christians are
turning the Jewish believers away from the Torah. This person feels
that most messianic jews have adopted the christian views and he
speaks against Christendom.
Torah is Yah's
Instruction which we should all be following. Y'shua is the Living
Torah! He defines Torah for us. The Torah all points to Him. To miss
Him is to miss the true meaning of Torah. Y'shua said these words to
men who thought they kept the Torah but did not accept the Son for
Who He is:
himself, who sent me, has testified about me. You have neither heard
his voice at any time, nor seen his form. You don’t have his word
living in you; because you don’t believe him whom he sent. 39 "You
search the Scriptures, because you think that in them you have
eternal life; and these are they which testify about me. 40 Yet you
will not come to me, that you may have life. John 5:37-40
This person has
accepted Yeshua as Messiah and says he does proclaim Him on air but
I also find a lot of disturbing things he says as well.
A. Anyone who does
not "honor the Son just as they honor the Father" is not accepting
either the Son or the Father. Don't throw out the baby with the
bathwater! Christendom has adopted many pagan ways and beliefs [that
should be avoided]. That
doesn't mean that Y'shua is not who He has claimed to be, the Divine
Son of God. I hope the comments above will help. My book has a lot
more. Read the book of John. It has a lot in it that will help you
to see that to worship the Son is to worship the Father.
We hope you have
enjoyed considering some of the feedback we are getting from our
listeners. We really appreciate all of you!
About this week's
program: A lot of research went into the program to grasp the true
geo-political situation and what may actually happen in the months
ahead. Preparation for war with Iran and its clients has been
planned. There are good military reasons why the nuke option may be
chosen this time. It's all laid out for you step by step in this
program. By the way,
