DECLARATION by Robert
Let me be clear, if you are here, looking to have your ears tickled, you’re in the wrong place. Unless of course, you are tired of living an empty existence, being placated, and seen as merchandise. But are looking to learn how to have a personal relationship with Yeshua, then I pray, you will find what you’re seeking, through the messages offered here.
I declared my objective is to see what those who transcribed history in the scriptures might have omitted or merely missed (and failed to recognize) or were influenced by prejudice to exclude.
What does this have to do with our walk and why do we need this type of data? I believe from this information, we can gather an accurate understanding of what connection there was between God and Man (Adam and Eve) before the fall. It will identify and give us a better understanding of who we are in the spirit and not just as flesh.
Considering the Christian belief Yeshua was born to Jewish parents, and came from the lineage of David a Jewish King, (Matthew 1:1-17) and taught to the world, which consisted of Jews, Christians and Gentiles (Matthew 4:17) as it does today. His teachings that He is the only way to “Life and Eternity” with Yahweh his Father I believe is a clue we once were connected Spiritually, and Yeshua is the only way to reconnect.
I have found where Jewish Scribes and Leaders possibly altered the Prophecy, perhaps with personal prejudices, which continue to exist today and probably are being preached.
Remember I am seeking to find the errors in what we have been taught in the past and will expose it, to find the true path to a very personal relationship with Yeshua. “The Jewish Scribes state Yeshua was not the descendant of David. “Many prophetic passages speak of a descendant of King David who will rule Israel during the age of perfection. (Isaiah 11:1-9; Jeremiah 23:5-6, 30:7-10, 33:14-16; Ezekiel 34:11-31, 37:21-28; Hosea 3:4-5).“
“The Messiah must be descended on his father’s side from King David (see Genesis 49:10, Isaiah 11:1, Jeremiah 23:5, 33:17; Ezekiel 34:23-24). According to the Christian claim, Jesus was the product of a virgin birth, he had no father – and thus could not have possibly fulfilled the messianic requirement of being descended on his father’s side from King David.”
Further research into this claim took me to Isaiah 7:1-14. To qualify what transpired then and I believe is happening today in Judaism is described in the following commentary by Matthew Henry (1662- 1774). “Secret disaffection to God is often disguised with the color of respect to him; and those who are resolved that they will not trust God, yet pretend they will not tempt him. The prophet reproved Ahaz and his court, for the little value they had for Divine revelation. Nothing is more grievous to God than distrust, but the unbelief of man shall not make the promise of God of no effect; the Lord himself shall give a sign. How great soever your distress and danger, of you the Messiah is to be born, and you cannot be destroyed while that blessing is in you. It shall be brought to pass gloriously; and the strongest consolations in time of trouble are derived from Christ, our relation to him, our interest in him, our expectations of him and from him.” Then Isaiah goes on to prophesy.
I quote this verse from the “Tanakh Bible,” Isaiah 7:14 because it is the verse most referred to, in denying the virgin birth, please note: they use a young woman in place of a virgin. “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, the young woman shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” which the Jewish Scribes use as Old Testament proof the virgin birth did not happen, which they stand on to disprove Yeshua’s Deity.
The Greek translation in the KJV bible reads “Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.“
Here, we need to research the meaning of the Hebrew word ‘almah’ (5959). Spiros Zodhiates’ Th.D. (1922 – 2009) “It has become commonplace to suggest that ‘Almah does not mean virgin, and that in fact, had Isaiah meant “virgin,” he would have used the Hebrew word bethulah (1330). The facts of languages are otherwise. ‘Almah is the clearest word Isaiah could have chosen to convey the idea of virginity. There is no appearance of ‘Almah’ in the OT where the meaning “virgin” cannot be used. Bethulah, on the other hand, often needs a qualification to clarify whether or not “virgin” is intended (e.g. Gen.24:16, where Rebekah is described as a “virgin (bethulah) neither had any man known her.” “Note that ‘Almah’, which occurs later in the same context (Gen.24:43), needs no such qualification.” The qualification is doubtless needed because bethulah unlike ‘Almah’, can sometimes refer to a married woman (Deut. 22:24, Joel 1:8). It is evident that ‘Almah’ ought indeed be translated “virgin” from Hebrew usage. But this is not the extent of the argument. The Greeks, who translated the OT into their language hundreds of years before Yeshua, had no question; they translated Isaiah 7:14, in the Septuagint with the Greek word parthenos, the word for “virgin.”
Knowledge, overcomes all false teachings through the acceptance of truth as our foundation. When I researched this information I related in prayer Father in heaven I accept your son Yeshua by faith and under your Grace, I thank you Father for placing this foundation under my faith.
In these days of darkness it is comforting to know who is before me and why He was lead into my life. I pray many will find the same comfort I am now having this foundation to stand on as I go forward in his service.
