Who is your Messiah?

Yeshua HaMashiach/Jesus Christ is righteousness/godliness revealed in the flesh (1 Timothy 3:16), declaring Elohim/God whom no one has seen (John 1:18), the everlasting Father who dwells in Him (John 14:10, 2 Corinthians 5:19). Indeed, He is the Word made flesh (John 1:14), the visible image of the invisible Elohim (Colossians 1:15), and the exact representation of His nature (Hebrews 1:3) for in Him the fullness of deity was pleased to dwell in bodily form (Colossians 2:9) just as the prophet Isaiah foretold (Isaiah 11:1-2). He is Immanuel, “Elohim with us” (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:23), the arm of Yahweh revealed (Isaiah 53:1; Exodus 6:6). And so when we see Him we see the Father (John 14:9), when we hear Him we hear the Father (John 7:16, 12:49, 14:10,24). He is the aleph and the tav, the beginning and the completion (Revelation 1:8, 22:12-13); the Living Bread that came out of Heaven (John 6:51) whose origins are of old (Micah 5:2). All things have been created by, through, and for Him (John 1:3, Colossians 1:16-17, Hebrews 1:1), and all things and all authority on Heaven and Earth have been given to Him (Matthew 11:27, 28:18). As such He is the true Elohim (1 John 5:20) whose throne is forever (Hebrews 1:8) and at His Name, every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess that HE IS THE LORD which brings glory to the Father (Philippians 2:9-11) the One who has completed His work through Him (Matthew 26:39, Luke 22:42, John 4:34, 6:38), and finally, it is finished (John 19:30).

I believe that God became incarnate in the person of Yeshua HaMashiach; that He was conceived of Holy Spirit and was born of the virgin Miryam (Mary); that He is truly God and truly man; that He lived a perfect, sinless life; that all His teachings are true (Isa.14:1ff.; Matt. 1:23). While on Earth Yeshua was a tzitzit-wearing, Torah observant, Seventh Day Sabbath-keeping, Feast-keeping, Biblically kosher Israelite from the tribe of Yehudah/Judah who came to proclaim the Kingdom of Yahweh; not to bring any “religion” or to abolish His Father’s Divine Instructions in Righteousness (Torah), without which we would have NO blueprint for moral, holy living (Matt. 5:17-19). I believe that Yeshua died on the cross for all mankind as a representative, vicarious, substitutionary sacrifice (I. Jn. 2:2; Isa. 53:5-6). I hold that His death is efficacious for all who believe; that our justification is ground in the shedding of His blood; and that it is attested by His literal, physical resurrection from the dead (John 1:12; Acts 16:31; Rom. 5:9; Eph. 1:17; Matt. 28:6; I. Pet. 1:3).
