The Father and The Son
by Dan Love

What is the true relationship of The Father and The Son?

Was Yahusha Messiah a god, is Yahusha Messiah G-d or is Yahusha Messiah the "Image of G-d?" Did Yahusha Messiah ever claim to be a god, G-d or the "Image of G-d?" Did Yahuah refer to Yahusha Messiah, as His equal OR His image? What does it mean to be in "The Image of G-d?" We seek to answer these questions and more in the following message.

NOTE: "God" (Theos in Greek) is an ambiguous term, just the same as "Lord" (Kurios in Greek) is an ambiguous term.

G-d "The Father" is "Yahuah," and our "L-rd Yahuah" is "Elohim." Yahusha is the true name of the first human to be born as a "Son of Yahuah." Yahusha (erroneously called Yahusha) is not G-d, and neither is he a god or G-d the son. Yahusha is simply "Yahuah's Anointed Messenger, Yahuah's First Born Son (of many to come), the "Passover Lamb," and our "High Priest." Additionally, there is no such thing as "G-d the son." There is a pagan "god the son," but that has nothing to do with being a True Follower of Yahusha Messiah (see pagan photos). Additionally, the error is further compounded by the ambiguous phrase "Son of G-d." Before we go any further, let's establish the truth of this phrase. The Messiah did not in all reality actually become The First Born "Son of G-d" until he was resurrected (Spiritually Begotten) from the physically dead. He was of course humanly born with the potential of becoming the First Human to become a "Son of G-d." But Yahuah is planning a family of "Sons," of which Messiah is the eldest or The First. This is why the Ancient Hebrews were taught to maintain the Sacred Tradition of the "First Fruits," of which Messiah was the "First of The First Fruits." Terms that refer to Messiah's future Spiritual siblings are "The Chosen Few," "The Elect," "The First Fruits," "The Children of G-d," "The Bride" or even the city in which they will exist as "The New Jerusalem." There are more terms, but I think you get the picture.

Genesis 1:26
26 Elohim said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:

Right away we can clearly see that man is an image or a likeness, but the verse, also, says "Our Image." Can we just assume that the "Our" is G-d The Father (Elohim) and G-d The Son; if you do, you will be following Babylonian tradition and false catholic doctrine, which is an unholy mix of various pagan and pagan Christian tradition. But don't just take my word for it, let's search the Holy Scripture for answers.
First of all, why don't I start with an alternate, but scriptural possibility for the "Our" in Genesis 1:26.

Revelation 4:2-4
2 Immediately I was in the Spirit. Behold, there was a throne set in heaven, and one sitting on the throne
3 that looked like a jasper stone and a sardius. There was a rainbow around the throne, like an emerald to look at.
4 Around the throne were twenty-four thrones. On the thrones were twenty-four elders sitting, dressed in white garments, with crowns of gold on their heads.

Here we can plainly see that there are twenty-four elders, who sit on thrones, with obvious authority given to them. Are they G-ds or gods? No, regardless of their authority, their power comes from The One True G-d, YHWH. This is further witnessed in Revelation 4:10-11 by their willingness to humble themselves before Yahuah. However, this does not rule them out as being the "Our" in Genesis 1:26. After all, having the same Holy Spirit or Pneuma as Yahuah means that they are all of 'One Accord' and quite capable of acting with or 'On Behalf' of Yahuah; from whom they derive their power, authority, and dominion. Could Yahusha (The Messiah) have originally been one of these twenty-four elders? No, but he is among them now, because he presently sits on a throne in heaven just like the twenty-four elders do; only he is seated on the right hand side of Yahuah; . See Mark 16:19, Luke 22:69, Acts 2:32-35, Acts 7:55-56, Romans 8:34, Colossians 3:1, Hebrews 1:1-14, Hebrews 8:1-3, Revelations 5:8.

Did Yahusha Messiah ever claim to be G-d OR the Son of G-d
(a Spiritual Image of his Spiritual parent); just the same as our physical children mirror many of our physical traits, G-d's Spiritual Children mirror His Spiritual (Righteous) traits?

In Matthew 11:27 Yahusha said that all things have been delivered to him by his Father. Which simply indicates that
Yahusha Messiah does not have any power, authority, or dominion without G-d the Father (Elohim), and that Yahusha Messiah did not have power, authority or dominion prior to receiving the "Promise" of the Holy Pneuma (Spirit). See Acts 2:33, Galatians 3:14, Ephesians 1:13.

Ephesians 1:19-23
19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His
(YHWH) power toward us who believe, according to that working of the strength of His might
20 which He
(YHWH) worked into Yahusha Messiah, when He (YHWH) raised him from the dead (Messiah did not raise himself), and made him to sit at His right hand in the heavenly places,
21 far above all
(Earthly) rule, and authority, and power, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that (Earthly World OR Promised Land) which is to come.
22 He put all things in subjection under his feet, and gave him to be head over all things to the assembly
(as His Proxy),
23 which is His body
(YHWH), the fullness of Him (YHWH) who fills all in all.

See, also, 1 Peter 4:11, and Revelation 1:5-6.

We know that Yahuah, The Source of True Love, is perfect in all ways, and is therefore worthy of being called "Good." What did Yahusha Messiah say when he was called good (or it was implied that he was good)? Did he reinforce the fact that he and the Father are not equal? Did he not indicate that he was less than G-d and, therefore, less than the perfection of G-d? Does a human being, including Yahusha Messiah, have to be perfect to be sinless (a legalistic point of view) or is it the "Intent of ones Heart" (spirit or pneuma) towards Yahuah and mankind that removes their sin? I can honestly tell you right now, that Yahuah removes the sin of all men who believe into His Holy Spiritual Attitude of Love and "REFLECT THAT IMAGE" of Love. This is what is meant by believing in G-d and believing in Yahusha Messiah (Yahuah's Image)! It means that it is the desire of our hearts to become like G-d, because we believe in what G-d represents! When we repent of our natural image of Satan and take on the Holy Image of G-d, then and only then do we gain "Favor" in G-d's eyes (Grace). Only then do we suddenly have a desire to obey G-d and keep His Commandments (all of them). Neither we nor Yahusha Messiah had to live a sinless life through legalism in order to have our sins washed away. This is not to say that Yahusha Messiah didn't actually live a sinless life, but neither does it say that he did. Regardless, Yahusha Messiah was without sin in G-d's eyes, because when G-d beheld His First Born Son of flesh, G-d did not see sin, but a Spiritual Reflection of Himself. It is this "Image of G-d" that is perfect and flawless, and not anything else! And that "Image" is an "Image of True Selfless Love." When Yahuah sees that "Perfect Image of Love" in us, though we be sinners, He sees Himself; and it is that "Perfect Image of Love" that we obtain through mirroring Yahusha Messiah, who mirrors Yahuah, that causes G-d to see Himself in us. This cannot be faked! G-d's "Plan of Salvation" is flawless and without legal loopholes! Human beings cannot love that which they hate or hate that which they love; and if they try, they become rebellious; just exactly like the ancient Israelites. See "True Perfection."

Matthew 19:16-17
16 Behold, one came to him and said, "Good teacher, what good thing shall I do, that I may have eternal life?"
17 He said to him,
"Why do you call me good? No one is good but one, that is, Yahuah. But if you want to enter into life, keep the commandments."

Matthew 19:16-17 (NSRV)
16 Then someone came to him and said, "Teacher, what good deed must I do to have eternal life?"
17 And he said to him, "Why do you ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you wish to enter into life, keep the commandments."

When Yahusha Messiah said,"I and the Father are one?" Did he mean "One G-d in Two Persons" or that he was (is) the reflected "Image of G-d?"

John 10:29-30
29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all. No one is able to snatch them out of my Father's hand.
30 I and the Father are "one"
(Spiritually Married or "As One").

Be not deceived, Yahusha Messiah never claims to be G-d in any scripture, but he does claim to be "One with G-d," meaning of "Like Mind or Spirit" (the word 'Like' indicates a reflection), having the power and authority of G-d, because Yahuah gave him this power and authority. Yahuah, gave him this power and authority, because He knows that Yahusha Messiah will not abuse it or use it in any way that is not according to "The Will of The Father." It is a "Love/Love" relationship based on faith and trust; just like a marriage should be.

So was Yahusha Messiah ever G-d
(YHWH) or a god? No, and he is not G-d or a god even now, but he does have the Power, and Authority of G-d (YHWH); and as such, he can speak for G-d as G-d's "Spokesman" or "Proxy."

Aren't all immortals actually gods? Actually no, the concept of having immortality and, thus, being a god is an ancient pagan belief. In order to be a True G-d, you have to be "Self-Existent;" and only Yahuah is "Self-Existent." Angels, the twenty-four elders, Satan, etc. have immortality, but they are not self-existent. In other words, they derive(d) their immortality through Yahuah Himself. If it were possible for Yahuah, "The Self-Existent One," to suddenly no longer exist, then all things Spiritually Immortal and physically mortal would, also, suddenly cease to exist
(Deuteronomy 32:39-40, Exodus 3:14). The translation of YHWH has many meanings, of which the two most common are "I Am What I Am," and "The Self-Existent One."

Are those who are going to be "Resurrected from The Dead" at "The Second Coming" going to become "Like G-d" in the same way that Yahusha is "Like G-d?" Yes, of course, they won't sit on a throne on the right hand side of Yahuah, but they will have the Power and Authority of G-d delegated to them, according to the parable of the "Talents"
(Matthew 25:13-31). There are those among us who will be called "Great in The Kingdom of G-d" (on Earth), and those who will be called "Least in The Kingdom of G-d" (This Kingdom temporarily exist in Heaven until after the resurrection).

Matthew 5:19
19 Whoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments, and teach others to do so, shall be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven (on Earth); but whoever shall do and teach them (all) shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven (on Earth).

As you can plainly see, we don't have to be perfect to be in the "First Resurrection," but we do have to be sincerely trying to become "An Image of G-d" through the example of Yahusha, His "First Born Son."

So what is the true relationship of The Father and The Son?

The First Born Son of man, Yahusha, is the "Reflected Image" of Yahuah. All of the rest of the "Children of G-d (YHWH)" (yet to be 'Born Again') will, also, be the "Reflected Image of The G-d of Love (YHWH)," once the "First Resurrection" or "Regeneration" takes place. Additionally, those of us who are still alive, right now, will have a "Love/Love" relationship with Yahuah through Yahusha Messiah wherein, all of our decisions in life are based on our Faith and Trust in G-d; For it is not Yahusha Messiah who draws us to the Father, but the Father Himself; Therefore, our Faith and Trust is in Yahuah (Our Savior), but our Belief is in the "Love of G-d" reflected to us through Yahusha (our Elder Brother, High Priest, Passover Lamb, and First Born Son of Man) whose example we willingly follow.

Note: Yahusha Messiah is our Savior too, but only in the sense the he is the "Reflected Image" of G-d our Savior.

John 6:43-44
43 Therefore Yahusha answered them, "Don't murmur among yourselves.
44 No one can come to me unless the Father
(YHWH), who sent me, draws him, and I will raise him up in the last day.

Jude 1:25
25 to Yahuah
Our Savior, who alone is wise, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and forever. Amen.

Matthew 19:28-29
28 Yahusha said to them, "Most assuredly I tell you, that
you (twelve Apostles, including Paul) who have followed me, in the "Regeneration" (Resurrection) when the Son of Man will sit on the throne of his glory, you also will sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel.
29 Everyone who has left houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, will receive one hundred times, and will inherit eternal life.

NOTE: Yahusha Messiah is called "The Son of Man" more often (87 times) than "The Son of G-d" (40 times). Here are just a few of the verses in Matthew alone: Matthew 8:20; 9:6; 10:23; 11:19; 12:8,32,40; 13:41; 16:28; and 17:9 to name a few. This is significant in light of Holy Scripture that makes a indisputable distinction between "G-d" and the "Son of Man."

Numbers 23:19
19 YHWH is not a man, that he should lie, neither the "
Son of Man", that he should repent: Has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

Did Yahusha Messiah repent? Yes, at his baptism by "John the Baptizer." Was he G-d, a god or a demi-god? No, he was one hundred percent flesh and blood, and may not even have had The Holy Spirit until after his repentance and baptism. However, he was "Set Apart" by YHWH to become our High Priest, Passover lamb, and Reflected Image of Love (of YHWH). Holy Scripture states that anyone who teaches that Yahusha Messiah was not one hundred percent flesh and blood has the spirit of the Anti-Messiah. The Trinitarian catholic and her Trinitarian daughter protestant churches teach just such a doctrine.

1 John 4:1-3
Beloved, don't believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of YHWH, because many false prophets have gone out into the world
(began over 2000 years ago).
2 By this you know the Spirit of YHWH: every spirit who confesses
(Strongs #3670, homologeo, enters into a marriage covenant) that (professes) Yahusha has come in the flesh (is only a man) is of YHWH,
3 and every spirit who doesn't confess
that Yahusha has come in the flesh (does not profess that Yahusha Messiah is only a man) is not of YHWH, and this is the spirit of the Anti-Messiah, of whom you have heard that it comes. Now it is in the world already

Note: Which was when the fledgeling Universal Roman church began to evolve in the mind of the beast. Look up the word catholic in your dictionary, it means "Universal." YHWH's true church cannot possibly be "Universal," as YHWH Himself has made it a "Select" group of a "Chosen" or "handpicked" FEW.

Little Children, Beware of Evil Masquerading as Good!
