All Nation's of the world have
laws to govern their societies. These laws are made to promote
the peace, happiness and general welfare of its citizen's. In
order to maintain the authority of these laws, the governments
will enact punishments that someone will receive if they knowingly
transgress the laws. Without these punishments, many would not
care to obey the laws and thus the harmony of society would be
broken down into a state of chaos.
It is the same with the Laws
of Yahweh, the self-existent Creator of the Universe. Yahweh's
Laws are summed up in ten precepts, known as the Ten Commandments.
The punishment for transgressing any one of these laws is eternal
death. Being that all mankind has transgressed one or more of
the Ten Commandments during their life, all mankind has come under
the penalty of death.
But, Yahweh so loved His created
beings that He devised a way that He could show mercy to sinners
and yet at the same time, have the justice of His law met. Anciently
Yahweh required a person that had sinned, to bring a particular
animal to be sacrificed for that person's sins, but this animal
only foreshadowed someone far greater. Yahweh foretold through
His prophet Daniel that an Anointed One would come into the world
and that when this Anointed One died, He would cause the sacrificing
of animals to cease, Dan. 9:24-27.
4000 years after the creation
of mankind, Yahweh looked over the earth and He found a righteous
young lady named Mary. Yahweh's power came upon her and He caused
her to become pregnant. Mary gave birth to a Boy that was God
in human flesh, for His mother was Mary, but His Father was Yahweh
Almighty. Yahweh told Mary to name the child Yahshua, meaning,
The life history of Yahshua
is recorded in the first four books of the second half of the
Bible, known as the New Testament. That Yahshua lived and died
is recognized and testified by the title of the year in which
we live. We live in the current year 2001A.D. A.D. stands for
a Latin term, Anno Domino, meaning "in the year of our Lord."
If someone lived before this time we will call it B.C., meaning
"before Christ". Christ is a Greek word that means anointed
in English. The Hebrew word for anointed is pronounced as Messiah
in English. What is it about this man that has caused even the
very years in which we live, to be based around when He was born?
The Bible records how Yahshua
lived a perfect life of working hard and helping all that He could.
When Yahshua was 33 ½ years old He allowed Himself to be
put to death by the corrupt authorities of His day and three days
later, Yahweh raised Him from the grave. He walked on earth for
fourty more days and then ascended into heaven, into the presence
of His Father, Yahweh El Shaddai (Almighty). When Yahshua was raised
from the grave it is recorded that He was not a Spirit, He could
eat, and had flesh and bones. Yahshua was raised as a man. The
wages of sin is not temporal death but eternal death and thus
Yahshua's dietyship had to die an eternal death, and only in this
way could the justice of the law truly be met. Another man or
even an angel could not die for sinful man, because they are not
equal to the law of Yahweh, which is what man had transgressed.
Salvation for sinful man could only be obtained through the life
and death of Messiah Yahshua. If any man will believe in Yahshua
as the Anointed One for his sins, and openly show that he believes
by being immersed in water in Yahshua's Name, he will be forgiven
of all his transgressions of the Law of Yahweh, Mark. 16:15,16.
He will stand in Yahweh's sight as though he had never sinned.
Yahweh can show mercy to the repentant, believing sinner, and
the authority and justice of His Law is still maintained in the
death of His Son, Messiah Yahshua. So, thus we see that justice
and mercy have met each other.
The choice is up to you my Friend. Will you choose to believe
in Yahshua as the Anointed One that died for your sins? Or do
you still have questions and doubts that need to be cleared first?
