Shalom. Our teaching from Torah, The Law of Moses will continue from Numbers 11.26-35.
AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, THE FATHER AND THE MESSIAH BEING ONE ARE THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.
And with that said, let’s read Numbers 11.26-35.
Eldad and Medad were written with the seventy elders of Israel who received The Holy Spirit but rather than go to the Tabernacle, they remained in the camp and prophesied.
And Joshua the servant of Moses said to Moses, Forbid them from prophesying. But Moses answered, Would GOD that all The LORD’S People were Prophets, and The LORD would put His Spirit, that is His Holy Spirit on them.
The Holy Spirit is The Spirit of Truth.
And The Holy Spirit guides you into all Truth, as The Holy Spirit guided the seventy elders of Israel to assist Moses.
The LORD requires His servants to live according to Truth, and teach Truth.
The Truth is every Word GOD speaks in The Bible.
And The Truth includes GOD’S Law of Moses that is written in the first five books of The Bible.
That is the foundation of the Word of GOD.
Truth is the spoken Word of GOD.
To do the work of the LORD in truth, the servant of GOD must have the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth to guide you into all truth, and teach you the truth.
The seventy elders of Israel were given The Holy Spirit by GOD to live by The Truth, and assist Moses with the burden of some three million People in accordance to GOD’S Laws and Rules that are written in The Law of Moses. GOD would have it no other way.
Peter said, The Holy Spirit is given to those who obey GOD.
Obeying GOD is receiving Messiah Yeshua for your Atonement, and living by every Law, Teaching, and Instruction of GOD that is written in His Law of Moses.
That is how you receive The Holy Spirit. And that is how you retain The Holy Spirit. JOHN 16.13, JOHN 17.17, ACTS 5.32, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3
Let’s return to Numbers 11.
And The LORD brought forth a wind in the wilderness that brought forth quails from the sea. Small, plump birds. And they fell by the camp. And there were so many birds that they were stacked three feet high. It would take a day’s journey just to see all the quails that GOD gave the people to eat, from one end of the camp to the other.
They that gathered the least birds, gathered about sixty to a hundred bushels of birds. But when the people cooked the quails and began chewing them, the wrath of GOD was kindled against them. The LORD struck the People with a very great plague because they complained against The LORD Who freed them from Egyptian slavery, complaining and weeping that they did not have meat to eat.
And they buried the People in a place called KEEV’ROTE HA’TAH’AH’VAH meaning the grave of lust.
Because the People lusted for meat.
Patience is necessary in life. And patience is required in our walk with The LORD, Messiah Yeshua. LUKE 21.19
When we exercise patience, we don’t give into complaining and doing stuff that might upset The LORD YOUR GOD.
Patience requires trusting in GOD ALMIGHTY, and knowing and believing that He will solve your problem or problems in peace.
You Take control of your life by trusting in The LORD for everything, rather than complaining and having your life spiral out of control.
Trust in Hebrew is BAH’TAKH meaning to Hide For Protection, be Confident, Sure, Secure, and to Rely on GOD. And Depend on Him for deliverance. ISAIAH 26.3-4, ISAIAH 12.2, 2 KINGS 18.1, 5-7, PSALM 30.10, PSALM 31.19, PSALM 56.3-4, PSALM 57.1-2
And the People continued their journey to the promised land.
Let’s examine the Title of this morning’s teaching.
THE FATHER AND THE MESSIAH YESHUA BEING ONE ARE THE HOLY SPIRIT, THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH.
THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. MARK 12.29, DEUTERONOMY 6.4, GENESIS 1.2-3
AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT THE SON, THE MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE MIGHTY GOD, AND HE IS THE EVERLASTING FATHER. ISAIAH 9.6, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, PROVERBS 30.4
AND MESSIAH CONFIRMS THAT HE IS THE FATHER BY HIS WORDS IN JOHN 12.45 AND JOHN 14.9
AND THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT THE FATHER AND THE MESSIAH YESHUA ARE THE HOLY SPIRIT. JOHN 14.23, JOHN 20.22
(JOHN 14.23) “We” will come into him and make our abode with him. “We” are The Father and The Messiah Yeshua, THE ONE GOD Who are The Holy Spirit Who takes up residence in you.
MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE FATHER, GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM.
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. YESHUA THE MESSIAH IS THAT ONE GOD.
And, as Messiah says in this verse, to receive The Holy Spirit, you must keep His Words. You must observe and obey every Word He speaks. Including obedience to His Law of Moses.
(JOHN 20.22) MESSIAH YESHUA, THE FATHER, GOD ALMIGHTY GIVES US THE HOLY SPIRIT.
But man teaches in the trinity that Messiah Yeshua is the second person of the godhead, or a different god. That is not true. Nor is it Biblical.
MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE GODHEAD. HE IS HA SHEM, THE ALMIGHTY GOD.
The GODHEAD is the nature of GOD, THE ALMIGHTY.
AND THE HOLY SPIRIT IS NOT THE THIRD PERSON OF THE GODHEAD OR ANOTHER GOD.
THE HOLY SPIRIT IS GOD ALMIGHTY, THE FATHER, YESHUA THE MESSIAH.
The trinity is a bad invention of men who have no understanding of GOD.
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD.
MESSIAH YESHUA AND THE FATHER ARE THAT ONE GOD. AND THESE TWO ARE THE HOLY SPIRIT.
We are privileged to read in The Bible the Words that Messiah Yeshua spoke to The Father in John 17.
And those Words are Truth.
JOHN 17.1 Yeshua The Messiah is on earth speaking to The Father in Heaven. Yet The Father and Messiah are both the ONE GOD.
Jeremiah 23.24 teaches us that The Spirit of GOD fills Heaven and earth.
Meaning GOD is present everywhere at the same time.
Likewise, GOD in physical form can be in different places at the same time. As He was on earth speaking to The Father in Heaven.
HOW CAN GOD DO THAT? GOD CAN DO THAT BECAUSE HE IS GOD. GOD HAS NO LIMITATIONS. GOD IS NOT A MAN WHO HAS LIMITATIONS.
YOU MUST KNOW AND BELIEVE GOD, AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOD. THAT THE FATHER, THE MESSIAH AND THE SPIRIT ARE THAT ONE GOD. ISAIAH 43.10, GENESIS 19.24, PSALM 110.1, ISAIAH 48.16-17, ZECHARIAH 14.1-5
JOHN 17.2-3 Messiah Yeshua has power over all humanity because Messiah Yeshua is GOD ALMIGHTY.
To know GOD is to have knowledge of GOD and an understanding of GOD. That GOD requires all mankind to fear Him, to walk in all His Ways, to love Him with all your heart, and keep His Commandments. That is all His Laws that are written in The Law of Moses.
And to know and believe that there is only ONE GOD. And that Yeshua The Messiah is that one GOD Whom The Father sent.
When you know and believe that, you have eternal life. And that is knowing GOD, and knowing what GOD requires of you. DEUTERONOMY 10.12-13
JOHN 17.4-5 Messiah Yeshua is GOD ALMIGHTY, HA SHEM Who has no beginning and no end. He has always been.
And Messiah was fully human when He gave His Life to be our Atonement. That was the finished work that The Father gave Messiah to do. MICAH 5.2, HEBREW BIBLE MICAH 5.1
The Ruler of Israel, born in Bethlehem, has no beginning and no end. He is Messiah Yeshua, GOD ALMIGHTY.
JOHN 17.6 Important Truth is that the People of GOD keep The Word of GOD.
They hold fast to GOD’S Word of Truth that includes His Law of Moses. And obey it along with their faith in Messiah Yeshua for Atonement.
Those people are the Family of GOD.
JOHN 17.7-8 The People of GOD receive The Word of GOD. They live by The Word of GOD, and teach The Truth of The Word of GOD.
The People of GOD receive GOD’S Law of Moses, and do it because we are Commanded by GOD to do it. And GOD’S Law is our delight.
And the People of GOD know, believe, and understand that there is only ONE GOD.
And Messiah Yeshua is that ONE GOD Whom The Father sent.
JOHN 17.9-10 Messiah only prays for the Family of GOD.
He does not pray for the world.
The world does not know GOD, nor does the world understand GOD.
And GOD is glorified and honored in The Family of GOD.
But The Almighty is not glorified by those who teach and believe in the trinity.
Nor is The LORD honored by those who teach and believe the lie that Christ did away with The Law of Moses at His death.
JOHN 17.11 Messiah prayed to The Father to keep and protect the Family of GOD. That we shall be ONE with GOD in agreement and deed in all that GOD requires of us. And that is to hear The Word of GOD, and do it. LUKE 8.21
That is the only way you can have a relationship with Yeshua the Messiah, THE LORD YOUR GOD.
JOHN 17.12-13 Messiah kept all who are predestined to be in the Family of GOD. None is lost but Judas Iscariot that the Scripture may be fulfilled. He turned against Messiah. PSALM 41.9
And we can have complete joy in this world having our sins forgiven in Messiah Yeshua. Living by Torah, The Law of Moses. And Trusting The LORD OUR GOD with all our heart. And be blessed.
JOHN 17.14 The world hates us because we keep The Word of GOD and The Law of Moses.
Thus we are not of the world even as Messiah is not of the world. The world rejects GOD. They reject His Word and His Law.
JOHN 17.15-17 Messiah prayed to The Father, asking Him to protect The Family of GOD from evil. And sanctify us. That is, make us Holy through The Truth.
The People of GOD receive The Truth, and do it.
JOHN 17.18-19 We are sent into the world by GOD ALMIGHTY, YESHUA THE MESSIAH to be His witnesses and His servants whom He has chosen.
That The LORD IS GOD, and beside Him there is no Savior. And we are sanctified by living according to Truth.
GOD’S Word is Truth. ISAIAH 43.11
JOHN 17.20-21 Being ONE with GOD The Messiah is having the Mind of Messiah. Living by The Word of Truth to be ONE with GOD. That the world may know that The Father sent Messiah. 1 CORINTHIANS 2.16
JOHN 17.22-23 MESSIAH IN US IS THE HOLY SPIRIT IN US.
AND THE FATHER IN MESSIAH MAKES US PERFECT IN ONE.
And that GOD loves you as He loves Messiah. And Messiah is GOD.
Thus GOD loves Himself because He loves Messiah Yeshua Who Himself is GOD.
And GOD teaches us to love ourselves also. Not in pride. But as in the Commandment of GOD to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. LEVITICUS 19.18
THUS WHEN YOU LIVE BY GOD’S WORD, AND HIS WORD IS TRUTH, HAVING ATONEMENT IN THE MESSIAH YESHUA, YOU ARE CHOSEN BY GOD, YOU ARE THE ELECT OF GOD. AND YOU ARE IN THE FAMILY OF GOD. AND YOU WILL SPEND ETERNITY WITH GOD IN HEAVEN. HOW SPECIAL IS THAT?
JOHN 17.24-26 For eternity, we will be with GOD, and we will see His Glory, His Magnificence. For Messiah is loved by The Father before the Creation.
The world does not know GOD but Messiah knows GOD because He is GOD.
But those who live by the Truth of GOD do know that the secret things belong to The LORD OUR GOD.
But those things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we should do all the Words of the Law of Moses. DEUTERONOMY 29.29, HEBREW BIBLE DEUTERONOMY 29.28
And the love that The Father has for Messiah, that same love is in us. Because we have the fullness of GOD in Messiah Who is The Holy Spirit.
