What Would Yahushua Do?

Walls of Jerusalem, YHWH's City of David

So, what would Yahushua (YAH-hoo-shu-ah) do?

1.    Well, what was His very FIRST command to us?

"Think not..."

And some have followed this perfectly... Seriously, though... Messiah's very first recorded command, a command with a WARNING, was to establish a BASELINE, a CORNERSTONE that all other truths from there on out, for the length of His ministry on earth, would build upon... The FOUNDATION we must stand on to understand all that He is about to do. The WARNING that He wanted us all to be aware of...

Think not that I am come to destroy the law (Torah), or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
(Mat 5:17-18 KJV)

Messiah's very first teaching, commonly called the "Sermon on the Mount," tells us the following about Torah and the Prophets (now mistakenly known as the "Old" Testament)... Now, lets read it again, from my favorite translation...

Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to complete.  “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one jot or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done. (Matthew 5:17~18 The Scriptures)

Imagine! Here, after thousands and thousands of years of the Israelites awaiting a coming Messiah, after signs and wonders and a "signs in the heavens" birth and mikvah (baptism), the Messiah has finally arrived... and in His very first teaching, in His premise for all that will follow, there contains a WARNING!?! What's going on? Should we not take notice?

Messiah knows the beginning from the end, the Aleph (alpha) from the Tav (omega), and He WARNS US in no uncertain terms about a coming lie that the Adversary will use to deceive the Bride; that He came to destroy (nullify, make void, do away with) Torah and the Prophets. And He further solidified this warning by telling us that not one "jot or tittle (the smallest Hebrew Torah marks)" would pass away from Torah until "heaven and earth pass away" and "all things be complete."

Are all things "complete?"

The heaven and earth still here is obvious, but have all things been complete? Did His birth set into place the passing away of Torah at the future crucifixion, death and resurrection? Let's see what Messiah himself teaches us about completion, for in the above verses in Matthew, Messiah tells us that He came to "complete" Torah. Indeed that "completion" of "the Law" is the basis upon which modern Christian theology is established... So, is it "complete" or is it not?

Luke tells us that on Shabbat (Sabbath), Messiah, as was His custom, visited the Synagogue in Nazareth to proclaim a prophetic fulfillment, a completion...

Yahushua reading TORAH!

And the scroll of the prophet Yeshayahu (Isaiah) was handed to Him. And having unrolled the scroll, He found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of YHWH is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to bring the Good News to the poor. He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to send away crushed ones with a release, to proclaim the acceptable year of YHWH.” And having rolled up the scroll, He gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the congregation were fixed upon Him. And He began to say to them, Today this Scripture has been filled ( completed) in your hearing.     (Luke 4:17-21 The Scriptures)

Why were all eyes upon him? What did he do wrong? What else were they waiting for? To answer that we must look at the Scripture Messiah was reading from... Isaiah 61. (For the Gospel of Luke and the New Testament did not yet exist)

The Spirit of the Master YHWH is upon Me, because YHWH has anointed Me to bring good news to the meek. He has sent Me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim release to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of YHWH, and the day of vengeance of our Elohim...
(Isaiah 61:1-3 The Scriptures)

Do you see what He left out of the reading?

All eyes were upon Him because He stopped reading and rolled up the scroll in the MIDDLE of a profound prophecy the Israelites have been praying for and crying for to be completed for millenniums! Many had heard about this man now before them, some even believed Him to be Messiah, and His stopping in the middle of an important prophecy stunned them... For they all were waiting to hear that "the day of vengeance of our Elohim..." was at hand! They were waiting for the "Victorious King" to put their enemies (at that time the Romans) under His feet and establish His rule and dominion over the whole earth from David's Throne. Indeed, most religious Jews still pray and wait for this King...


Messiah proclaimed only a PARTIAL completion! The prophecy of Isaiah is still partly unfulfilled (among others)... If even ONE part of Torah and the Prophets remains unfulfilled, then it is NOT COMPLETED! If it is not completed, yet it is "done away with," then it is all a LIE... an ancient tale of FICTION; or, could it be... Christianity has embraced a deception of grand order? I will attempt to show it is the later... Please pray for wisdom now in this matter.

The Grand Illusion!

The Great Deceiver, that acursed fallen angel, after his defeat at the crucifixion and resurrection where the keys of death, hell and the grave were taken back by Messiah, has foisted a lie upon Adam's chosen seed, an illusion of replacement. Every single Christian denomination has dismissed the stern warning Messiah gave us in Matthew 5! Oddly, due to their mindset and perspective, they think that warning has no relevance to them; an illusion that has Torah and the Prophets "passed away" and put "under Grace," relegated to cute "Sunday School" stories on felt storyboards, except for the "10% Tithe," of course, but that "pick-n-choose" hypocrisy is another teaching here...

Do you now see the Grandest of Illusions? The "not applicable to me" deception?

For if this "passing away" were true, then why does Zechariah tell us that we will ALL be keeping "Sukkot (Feast of Tabernacles/Booths)" during the FUTURE Millennial reign of Messiah and why does John tell us he sees Messiah standing in the midst of a Menorah (lamp stand with SEVEN lights), all established concepts in TORAH and Temple service?

And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles (Sukkot).
(Zecariah 14:16 KJV)

And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks (menorah); And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man...
(Revelation 1:12-13 KJV)

YHWH Menorah

To not make all Scripture a fairy-tale story of fiction, the only answer that remains is that the Torah and the Prophets, our "Owner's Manual" from our Creator, is still VALID, in place and in force and that the Christian Church has embraced a vile deception, giving birth to all forms of idolatry, paganism and Torah-lessness (Lawlessness). And when viewed from this proper mindset and perspective, the "odd, pro-Torah" teachings of the Disciples fall into beautiful harmony, making all of Scripture ONE, UNIFIED BOOK. The labels of "Old" and "New" fall off our eyes like scales and we embrace the Torah Roots of our faith...

Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ “And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness (Torah-lessness)!
(Matthew 7:22-23 The Scriptures)

Could this group of prophesying,  miracle-workers and demon-delivering people be:

These are serious, eternal matters and one must question what all this means with a soft heart that has been "meeked," meeked as a strong horse submits its strength to its master. For "Blessed are the meek..." Only the submissive strong can admit error that may stretch for decades in their life and repent (turn away from) then humbly return to their "First Love," Messiah Yahushua.

~~ You may need to pause before continuing, reflecting on what you have learned so far ~~

In ignorance, trapped in tradtions and falsehoods, like I was for decades of my life, the revelation I got of the above "truth in plain sight, hidden by mindset" was stunning, like a bright light turned on in the darkness. In GRACE, true grace and mercy..., I was "saved," and He heard my prayers, but because I truly WANTED to know my Father in Heaven, not just play Church games, He brought me to a place where I could lift up the blinding scales and see the TRUE light... And once you see the light, one cannot go back to shades of darkness ever again... Indeed the light gets brighter as you walk towards it and you discover even more shadows of darkness (deception)...

2.    Secondly, "He would answer to HIS REAL NAME!"

It may come as a surprise to many, but the name "Jesus" is far removed from the TRUE NAME of the Messiah given to Miriam (Mary) by the Angel Gabri'el that special night.  Furthermore, the name "Jesus" cannot even be called a TRANSLATION.  An accurate English "translation" of the Messiah's name would be "JOSHUA."  Oddly, this name, "Joshua," a proper translation from Hebrew, was not used (for reasons we shall soon learn).  The name "Jesus" is neither His given name nor a translation, it is a centuries old MAN-MADE creation under the guise of a translation! Thankfully, if this is new to you, you are under GRACE and our Messiah answers you by the name you have held to all these years, just as He did me for all those decades. But if He has brought you here (it is not by accident), then I believe He is speaking to you about further REVELATION into who He is, including His name.  Lets investigate further to discover the true HEBREW name of the Messiah...

The name "Yahshua" in modern Hebrew letters

So what's the BIG DEAL? I speak ENGLISH, not Hebrew...

I emphasize His real HEBREW name, Yahushua, as shown above in the modern form of Hebrew, because as any Scriptural scholar will tell you, Hebrew names in the Scriptures mean something.  Please grasp the importance of this truth, it is essential to understanding the desire we should have for accuracy of His name.  They are not just letters joined together in a line, they have DEFINITION.  They MEAN something...  Sadly, most of the world only knows Yahushua by the name of "Jesus Christ," which, besides being a very poor translation, completely LACKS the intended meaning of the Hebrew name, that is "Yah Saves."  Every time you use the name, "Yahushua," you proclaim to the whole world that "Yahuwah Saves!"  The name Jesus has no such meaning, nor such testimony in language.

So confused are many that they think "Christ" is Jesus' last name!  Basically, to keep it simple, "Jesus" is a very poor Roman translation from Latin, that was also poorly translated from the Greek, which IN NO WAY resembles His Hebrew name, "Yahushua."  Whew!  Get all that?

Now "Christ" is a modern word for the Greek word "Christos," which means "anointed one."  It is the same name used for all the Greek gods, not just Jesus.  All the Greek gods were "Christ."  It was translated from the word "Messiah," which is "Maschiach" in the Hebrew, which also means "Anointed One."  Some may argue that I stress semantics but I believe it important that we use the name His Father in heaven gave to Him through his Messenger (Angel) to Miryam (Mary) and Yosef (Joseph) and not mix Him in with OTHER CHRISTS (false gods).  Remember, in the Hebrew language, names MEAN SOMETHING.

For example, how would you like someone calling you by a different name even though they know your real name but choose not to use it?  If your name was "Mikhail Gorbachev" and everyone called you "Michael Gorbachev," what would you think of your new friends? Rude, isn't it?  Remember, Yahushua himself told us that He comes in His Father's name, which is YHWH (YAH-hoo-wah).  When you REJECT the Messiah's true name, you also reject the Father's real name.  That is a BIG DEAL, indeed!  Speak English, but use the CORRECT NAMES... the Hebrew ones.

Although some would argue "YAHUshua" -vs- Yahshua -vs- Yehovah" -vs- "Yeshua" -vs- "Jesus" till the Messiah returned, my studies and belief, as well as the works of experts in the Hebrew language, show me that Yahushua [YAH-hoo-shu-ah] is probably the most accurate pronunciation of the Messiah's name.  It makes perfect sense as this pronunciation is the exact name of the Messianic "Branch" prophesied in Zechariah 6:11~12 as well as Moshe's (Moses') successor (known in English as Joshua) who led the Israelites over the Jordan, therefore, with abundant and scholarly evidence, I personally use Yahushua.

(Zec 6:11-12) Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon the head of Yâhuwshú`a, son of Yehowtsadaq, the high priest; {12} And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh YHWH Tsaba (of Hosts), saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall build the Temple of YHWH:

I acknowledge that many other fellow Brothers and Sisters who seek out and follow the Messiah use "Yeshua."  I think, with the knowledge and understanding we presently have, that this version of his name lacks scholarly evidence and even less Scriptural evidence for validation, as well as a documented history of being tampered with, yet IN GRACE and MERCY, it is "probably" acceptable.  I say "probably" because it is in a grey zone Scripturally where I don't have a definitive answer.  One thing is undeniable, the name "Jesus" is far from his original given name and any of the above versions, even the name JOSHUA, would be more accurate than the name Jesus.  Some may not seem it important, but I personally want to be as close as possible to the name the Angel Gabri'el told Miryam to name our Messiah!  The name above ALL names... The name that surely holds salvation.  The name that proclaims, "Yah Saves!"  For no matter where you stand on this, we will soon ALL know his true name as we see Him come in His glory... even so, come quickly Yahushua, come quickly.

The Name (Ha Shem) is "in" Messiah?

Notice the three identical Hebrew letters (Yod, Heh, Vav/Wah) in both names below (Hebrew is read and written right to left)... Those three letters are the poetic short form of the Father's name, "YAH."

The name "YAHWEH" in modern Hebrew letters.          The name "Yahushua" in modern Hebrew letters.

If one uses the common but incorrect modern name of "JESUS" instead of the accurate, native tongue "Yahushua," I believe, in grace, while still researching this revelation and waiting for confirmation from Him, it is acceptable.  But if you have read this far, you are NO LONGER in ignorance of the DEEPER revelation.  You must soon CHOOSE truth or a lie, as the Ruach (Spirit) leads.  I know that in my life, while in ignorance, trapped in the Mystery of Babylon, the pagan-influenced "institutional"  Christian Church, the Messiah has answered and responded to "JESUS" uncountable times.  Yet I choose, after being set free and awakened to the Torah Roots (Hebrew Roots) foundation of my faith, to come closer to Him and use the ONLY NAME that holds salvation, literally. Yahushua means "Yah Saves."  This is not just a clever name game...  As said above, names MEAN something and we should TAKE NOTICE!

In addition, the excellent article on www.eliyah.com titled, "Why Yahushua?," gives us strong evidence that the early Disciples of Yahushua took great effort to ensure that the name of the Messiah was pronounced properly and that it was a matter of DOCTRINE to do so.  I quote from the article below.

Interestingly, there is evidence that although the name of Yahushua was written in Greek as IhsouV, it may have actually been pronounced the way a Hebrew speaking person would pronounce it.  Around 178 CE, a pagan by the name of Celsus engaged in written debates with Christians. In one of them, Celsus (speaking of Christians) said:

"But of course they think otherwise: they assume that by pronouncing the name of their teacher they are armored against the powers of the earth and air.  And they are quite insistent on the efficacy of the name as a means of protection: pronounce it improperly, they say, and it is ineffective.  Greek and Latin will not do; it must be said in a barbarian tongue to work.  Silly as they are, one finds them standing next to a statue of Zeus or Apollo or some other god, and shouting, "see here: I blaspheme it and strike it, but it is powerless against me for I am a Christian."  Celsus on the True Doctrine, A Discourse Against the Christians, R. Joseph Hoffman (page118)

Notice that Celsus was quoting Christians as saying that the name of "their teacher" (Yahushua no doubt) must not be spoken "improperly" and that it must not be spoken in a "Greek" way or "Latin" way, but in a "Barbarian tongue" for it to be effective.  Of course, to the pagans the Hebrew language was nothing more than a barbarian language.  This lends evidence that even though the name of Yahushua was written as IhsouV, there were at least some people speaking it in the Hebrew way.  The Greek alphabet simply lacks the letters necessary to correctly convey how the name is pronounced in Hebrew.

3.    Thirdly, he would call his Father by His TRUE NAME, Yahuwah (YHWH), or, more intimately, Abba Yahuwah (Father Yahweh).

And Elohim said further to Mosheh, “Thus you are to say to the children of Yisra’el, ‘YHWH Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Yitshaq, and the Elohim of Yaaqob, has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is My remembrance to all generations.’
(Exo 3:15 The Scriptures 1998+)

My remembrance?!?  How many know of this name?  Not many, I bet!  How many Pastors and Priests use this Name when reading Scripture to the Church or in prayers? Even less!!! I can only imagine how much it GRIEVES and pains The Father to see how many people have no idea what His true name is, even the ones who call themselves "His Children."  How about the words "to ALL GENERATIONS?"  All generations does not mean till 30AD, the year Yahushua died for our sins, but every single generation from Adam to the Messiah's return.  If you call yourself a "Child of God," this especially includes YOU!

The name "YAHWEH" in ancient Paleo-Hebrew letters.          The name "YAHWEH" in modern Hebrew letters.

YAHUWAH is the TRUE NAME of the Elohim (God) of Israel and when Moshe (Moses) wrote it down it probably looked like the early Paleo-Hebrew script shown above left, with the modern Hebrew text  to the above right.  The all-capitals "LORD," now used as an unscriptural REPLACEMENT of the true name, is just a TITLE, not a name.  It is important you understand the difference.  Yahuwah wants us to know and use His Name, not His Title, so that all the world will know that He is Yahuwah Tsaba (of Hosts), Elohim of Yisrael!

So, WWYD? Let's see what exactly He did do... As our example, Yahushua (Jesus) made the TRUE NAME, Yahuwah, known to his disciples, as well as glorified it, and so should we!  Pay very close attention to the two verses below...

(John 17:6 KJV) I have manifested thy name unto the men which thou gavest me out of the world: thine they were, and thou gavest them me; and they have kept thy word.

(John 17:26 KJV) And I have declared unto them thy name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith thou hast loved me may be in them, and I in them.

Manifested? To make the unknown known... Declared? To announce or pronounce...

Do you see it?!?

Manifested Yahuwah's name! Declared Yahuwah! This truth about WWYD? (What Would Yahushua Do?) has been there all along... how did I miss it for DECADES?  How has the Church, with all its highly educated men and women with theological DOCTORATES and DEGREES, missed it for over a MILLENNIA?  How?  The shocking power of MAN-MADE TRADITIONS and satanic deceptions!!!  Learn more about this grievous rebellion and the TRUE NAME in the "Iron Sharpens Iron" section...

Do you sing and say, "Hallelujah!," yet refuse to use the Father's name, "Yahuwah?" <CLICK HERE>

4.    Fourthly, but not finally, He would OBSERVE, ENCOURAGE, and CHERISH Torah!

Yahushua is the PERFECT TORAH!  He is the Torah made flesh (John 1:1).  He obeyed YHWH's instructions perfectly, the only man to do so... ever!   If we ask, "What would Yahushua do?," we must answer "observe Torah."  Yahushua "IS" what is written (Torah), "SAID" what is written (Torah) and "DID" what is written (Torah)!

Modern Christians incorrectly call "TORAH" the "LAW," which to many of us has a NEGATIVE, LEGALISTIC overtone, when more accurately it is translated "INSTRUCTIONS."  For example, if your Father or Mother told you how to correctly behave regarding a certain matter and if you have love and respect for your parents, you would take heed to their words as you know it is the RIGHT thing and BEST thing to do.  However, if you don't take heed to their words and rebel against them, your Father or Mother may then DEMAND it from you with a consequence for further rebellion.  Therefore a respectful son or daughter will take heed to their parents words and do them willingly and joyfully, never crossing over into discipline.  So to is it with Torah, our "instructions" from our loving Heavenly Father!

Thankfully Yahushua obeyed the Torah on our behalf, as our representative, just as he paid the price for OUR  disobedience of Torah, by His death.  We, through YHWH's grace and the sprinkled blood of the Pasach (Passover) Lamb, Yahushua, observe Torah with CELEBRATION!    We joyously celebrate the perpetual and everlasting Festivals of YHWH (Leviticus 23) and on the seventh day we meet with Him on Shabbat (Sabbath), HIS appointed day, the day HE PROMISED to meet with us, and we live our lives according to the wonderful ways of Torah (instructions), our "Owner's Manual" for humanity.  To observe the Torah is the outward  sign of our inward  change, knowing that our salvation is NOT BY OUR WORKS, but HIS!

2Kepha [Peter] 3:15~17 "…as also our beloved Sha'ul [Paul] wrote to you, according to the wisdom given him, as also in all his letters, speaking in them concerning these matters, in which some are hard to understand, which those who are untaught [in Torah] and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do also the other Scriptures [Torah]. You, then, beloved ones, being forewarned, watch, lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the delusion of the lawless. [Lawless = without Torah]

Yahushua tells us, recorded in the Hebrew Matthew, to do what Moses' tells us to do and not to do as the Pharisees (religious leaders) do if the laws (takanot) of the Pharisees, even though they sit on "Moses' Seat," were to supersede, cancel out or contradict Moses.  Moses gave us TORAH!  There is no written text with higher authority.

But wait!  I thought "THE LAW" was done away with?  Why would Yahushua tell us to do what Moses tells us to do in YHWH's Torah?  Didn't he come to FREE US from the Law?  This is why you must dig through TRADITIONS and LIES and ask, "WWYD?" He would Observe Torah!

In his very first recorded teaching, the so-called Sermon on the Mount, Yahushua proclaimed, Think not that I am come to destroy the law [Torah], or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law [Torah], till all be fulfilled. (Mat 5:17-18 KJV)

Has all been fulfilled? Of course not! So why do so many say the Torah has been "passed away?" Yahushua wanted it to be very clear, right from the beginning, what His intentions were regarding Torah. For he foresaw, as Elohim, the time when future teachers would twist Scripture and the meaning and purpose of His death and resurrection, to justify the rejection of Torah for undefined and unrestricted GRACE without FOUNDATION.

Could Yahushua have been any clearer in the above verses? Could it be any more to the point? Yet the modern Church has twisted His entire way of life; the traditions He observed, the Sabbath's He kept, the Festivals He celebrated, the Scriptures He fulfilled, into a foundationless, LAWLESS [without Torah], grace is all that matters, alternative religion.

In conclusion... "What must one do to be in the Lamb's Book of Life?" Here is a good start...

Then shall those who fear יהוה (Yahuwah) speak to one another, and יהוה  listen and hear, and a book of remembrance [the Lamb's Book of Life] be written before Him, of those who fear יהוה, and those who think upon His Name. (Mal 3:16 The Scriptures '98)

Do YOU think upon the Father's Name? Before now, did you even know it?

Now you know HIS NAME! You are now closer to fulfilling that prophecy and have your name recorded in that Book of Remembrance, the Lamb's Book of Life... But there is more...

Now it is about to get DEEP, for I have been shown things lately and I have seen a glimmer of how deep the "Rabbit Hole" goes and it is time I, like Morpheus in the movie, "The Matrix," give you a CHOICE...

The Red or Blue Pill


Before you choose, know that this is NOT a path that you can step back from, for what you learn cannot be unlearned... The "Matrix" will be exposed to you forever and you will understand the parable of the "narrow path" that few find. You will also recall the "bliss of ignorance" and know why some wanted to go back to Egypt. You will loose friends (but REAL friends will always be so) and be persecuted, even by those who cherish Torah and are within the "Hebrew Roots." You will grieve at how deep and wide the Rabbit Hole is... But you WILL be SET FREE! For your eyes will SEE and your ears will HEAR, and your heart will FEEL, if even just a bearable small portion, what the Messiah must feel in His heart as High Priest...
