How did Yahusha defeat death?
by Rav Sha'ul

 

We know that Yahuah's own laws prevent us from being judged for Adam's sin. Each man is judged for his sin alone:

Deuteronomy 24:16

"The fathers shall not be put to death for the children, neither shall the children be put to death for the fathers: every man shall be put to death for his own sin."

Yahuah would never violate His own law!  The entire doctrine of “Original Sin” is a false doctrine.  What the Bible teaches is that through the one act of disobedience to The Law of Yahuah (Adam) sin was brought into the world and as a result of Adam's sin his body began to die.  From that point forward, DEATH was passed to all men genetically and sin was in the world. 

Romans 5:12

"Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned"

We see above "sin" was brought into the world but it was death that was passed on genetically and all men die for their own sin, they do not "inherit" sin.  Having sinned; Adam's body went from genetically eternal to the genetic disposition of "dying" which was passed on from generation to generation.  All humans are born to die genetically but because they sin during this life that death is justified by Yahuah.  Adam didn not die the day he ate of the fruit of the tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil, his body changed genetically and he died over a period of hundreds of years.  By disobeying Yahuah, sin was brought into this world by a HUMAN. 

Over the millennia since, through human breeding and sin, that genetic death sentence now occurs in less than a hundred years.  The Bible says that death, not sin, is passed on in the body.  Sin was brought into the world (not our body) through one act of disobedience.  As a result the "law" of sin and you die by decree called The Law of Sin and Death reigned over humanity.  That "Law of Sin and Death" was introduced in the garden when Yahuah gave one of His very first laws: Eat of the fruit (law) and you shall surely die (death decree).  It is this threat of death that held us captive not The Law of Yahuah:

Hebrews 2:14-15

14 so that by his death he, Yahusha, might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death

We are all predisposed to "sin" in our flesh through temptation and that weakened The Law’s ability to deliver eternal life as promised.  The penalty of sin is death, which is in our genetic structure because of Adam.  So the sentence of "death" is justified because we all individually fall for the temptation of sin in this world.  After our physical death (which is unavoidable because of Adam's sin) Yahuah then must justify that death by issueing the final death decree (called the second death).  In this way we die both physically (due to genetics) and spiritually (due to our own sin) for all eternity.

This cycle had to be broken by a man just as it began with a man.  If Yahusha was a demi-god the entire concept of overturning Adam’s act would have no value.  In order to defeat death, a man whose body was genetically engineered to “die” which was normally justified because “all have sinned” had to die innocent.  Death then cannot hold an innocent man because death is the penalty of sin and Yahuah has to issue the final death decree for them to stay dead.  So Yahuah predestined a human Messiah and High Priest to come and live in complete obedience to His Law as High Priest after Mikveh.  Yahuah prophesied He would rise up a High Priest from the House of Zadok from the descendants of Eleazar, who would serve in that office without sin:

1 Samuel 2

35 Then I will raise up for Myself a faithful priest who shall do according to what is in My heart and in My mind. I will build him a sure house, and he shall walk before My anointed forever.

That man would have to die physically because his body was genetically designed to die… then that man would defeat death being innocent and live again eternally because Yahuah would refuse to issue the final death decree and instead raise him from the dead.  So death cannot hold a son of Yahuah because to die spiritually requires the final death decree to be issued by Yahuah (the second death).  However, Yahuah promised Yahusha if he would walk in obedience to The Law as High Priest and offer his own life for the lives of the rest of the sons of Yahuah as Passover Lamb, then Yahuah would forgive the sin of the world in one day and NOT issue the final death decree for those in covenant with Yahusha.  This is explained in detail in Zachariah Chapter 3.

Zechariah 3 - Clean Garments for The High Priest, Yahusha

1 Then he showed me Yahusha the high priest standing before the angel of YHVH, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. 2 YHVH (through His proxy The Angel before whom stood Yahusha and Satan) said to Satan, “YHVH rebuke you, Satan! YHVH, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?”

3 Now Yahusha was dressed in filthy clothes (metaphor of sin) as he stood before the angel. 4 The angel said to those who were standing before him, “Take off his filthy clothes.” Then YHVH said to Yahusha, “See (after taking off his filthy rags), I have taken away your sin (fifthly rags Isaiah 64:6), and I will put fine garments (of the High Priest) on you.”

5 Then I said, “Put a clean turban (of the High Priest) on his head.” So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him (in the garments of the High Priest), while the angel of YHVH stood by. 6 The angel of YHVH gave this charge to Yahusha: 7 “This is what YHVH Almighty says (again YHVH speaking through His proxy Angel): ‘If (YHVH makes a conditional promise) you will walk in obedience to me and keep my requirements (The Torah), then (here is the promise if he keeps The Torah and obeys the Will of YHVH) you will govern my house (i.e. King over creation) and have charge of my courts (Eternal Judge), and I will give you a place (right hand of YHVH) among these standing here.

8 “‘Listen, High Priest Yahusha, you and your associates seated (who came) before you (probably Adam, Enoch, Moses, Elijah, etc.), who (those seated before him) are men symbolic of things to come: I am going to bring (you) my servant (from this point forward), the Branch (he is The Messiah).

9 See, the stone I have set in front of Yahusha! There are seven eyes on that one stone, and I will engrave an inscription on it,’ says YHVH Almighty, ‘and I will remove the sin of this land in a single day (the day Yahusha, in obedience, dies as Passover Lamb).

A man, NOT a God had to break this cycle of “sin and you die”… 

Hebrews 5:8-9

8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience (to Yahuah) by the things which He suffered. 9 And having been perfected (by Yahuah through obedience and suffering), He became the author of eternal salvation (forefather of everlasting life) to all who obey Him.

Romans 5:12

15 But the gift is not like the trespass. For if the many died by the trespass of the one man, how much more did Yahuah’s grace and the gift that came by the grace of the one man, Yahusha the Messiah, overflow to the many! 16 Nor can the gift of God be compared with the result of one man’s sin: The judgment followed one sin and brought condemnation, but the gift followed many trespasses and brought justification. 17 For if, by the trespass of the one man, death reigned through that one man, how much more will those who receive Yahuah’s abundant provision of grace and of the gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man, Yahusha the Messiah!

The Messiah Yahusha was that man to break The Law of Sin and Death and then die innocent and defeat death in the process.  Through the Messiah, one act of the obedience of one man (not a God) resulted in salvation from death, again we see that DEATH not "sin" came through Adam genetically... and by "man" not "a God" came the resurrection of the dead:

1 Corinthians 15

20 But now the Messiah is risen from the dead, and has become the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep. 21 For since by man (Adam) came death, by Man (not God) also came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in (one human) Adam all die, even so in (one human), the Messiah, all (the sons of Yahuah) shall be made alive (begotten by Yahuah as sons through resurrection). 23 But each one (of the sons of Yahuah) in his own order (after Yahusha, the eldest son):  The Messiah the first fruits (first of the sons to be resurrected), afterward those who are the Messiah's at his coming (first resurrection when the rest of the sons will be begotten).

The Law of the Spirit of Life i.e. a man living in complete obedience to The Law receiving the promise of eternal life… has broken The Law of Sin and Death as Yahusha was perfected over a life of being tempted with no sin.  Yahusha was obedient to The Law of Yahuah and died an innocent man.  Death cannot hold an innocent man and thereby Yahusha “defeated death”.

Yahusha, the man, became the "Everlasting Father" or "forefather of everlasting life" and made righteous in the eyes of Yahuah.  And now, to all of us who follow in his footsteps in obedience to Yahuah, we too are declared righteous not by faith alone, but by a process of obedience to The Law, suffering through faith, and expressing our faith by keeping Passover in light of Yahusha’s sacrifice.  In doing so, his blood covers the death decrees in The Law on our behalf and we too are found innocent after we die… and we too will defeat death through resurrection:

James 1:22

22 Do not merely listen to the word (the Torah, there was no NT), and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.

Romans 2:13

For it is not those who hear The Law who are righteous in God's sight, but it is those who obey The Law who will be declared righteous.

James 2:16-26

16 Faith and Deeds (works of the law).  Faith alone does not save, nor does deeds alone.  You must have both. …17 In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead. 18 But someone will say, “You have faith; I have deeds.”  Show me your faith without deeds, and I will show you my faith by my deeds. 19 You believe that there is one God (The Shema). Good! Even the demons believe that—and shudder.  … 24 You see that a person is considered righteous by what they do and not by faith alone…26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

Yahusha being fully human denied the fleshly desire to "sin" and obeyed Yahuah even to the point of willingly going to his own death (which was not Yahusha's own will).  It is the ultimate demonstration that Yahusha set aside his fleshly will to live, and obeyed Yahuah's will that he die.  To save us, Yahuah literally took a human being and perfected him through suffering and made Yahusha our "pioneer of our salvation" our "forefather of everlasting life" yes even the title "Everlasting Father" all meaning the same thing.  Yahuah orchestrated our salvation through His human Messiah which was His Plan from the beginning prophesied in Genesis where the seed of a woman would crush the head of the serpent.  That plan of Yahuah’s was fulfilled in Yahusha:

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the plan of Yahuah, and the plan was with Yahuah (and defined His purpose in creation), and the plan was Yahuah's. 2 The same plan was in the beginning with Yahuah. 3 All things were done according to the plan of Yahuah, and without the plan of Yahuah nothing was done, that was done. 4 In this plan was (predestined) life (through a human Messiah’s sacrifice), and that life was the light (revelation) to mankind. 5 Now that light (Yahusha is the fulfillment of that Plan) shines in the darkness, but the darkness does not take hold of it.

Hebrews 2:10-18

14 Since the children have flesh and blood (and are held captive to The Law of Sin and Death), he too shared in their humanity (he was human too and captive to genetic death) so that by his death (the death of a human not God) he, Yahusha, might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason (to break The Law of Sin and Death) he (Yahusha) had to be made like them fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest (who are chosen from among men) in service to Yahuah

Paul is teaching above the exact same message I am trying to convey.  Since the children of Yahuah are first born flesh and blood, the Messiah too had to be born flesh and blood to atone for them and break the power of death.  Nowhere in Scripture does it say it takes God to die to save us.  Nowhere in Scripture did Yahuah promise to come to Earth and die, that is actually impossible.  For this reason, the Messiah HAD TO BE HUMAN not God or a demigod.  He could not have been Yahuah in the flesh.  He had to be and was human.... fully human in every way so says verse 17 above.  Because if he wasn’t he could not undue what was done by Adam who was human.  Yahusha is the “second chance Adam”.  A man brought sin and death into the world... it would take a man to take them out of the world.

Now, having proven himself as a human that could obey and withstand the temptation of his flesh... Yahusha was chosen by Yahuah from among all mankind as High Priest to serve Him for eternity.  Yahusha HAD to die not only for us but for himself.  He too was in a human body predisposed to death genetically and that body had to be put to death for Yahusha to enter The Kingdom of Yahuah.  He had to make that sacrifice as human High Priest...  you see below, Yahusha as High Priest is chosen from among men in vs. 3 "he is obligated to offer sacrifices for sins, as for the people, so also for himself". 

I get asked all the time "how could a man do all the work of salvation? It HAD TO BE GOD!"  Not only is that untrue because it is impossible for Yahuah to die or be tempted by evil in the process, but it is also clearly stated that the Messiah had to be a human and the sacrifice of death for humanity had to come at the hands of a human high priest for the people and for himself.

Hebrews 5

1 For every high priest (Yahusha was the High Priest of Israel by bloodline) taken from among men is appointed on behalf of men in things pertaining to Yahuah, in order to offer both gifts and sacrifices for sins; 2 he can deal gently with the ignorant and misguided, since he himself also is beset with weakness; 3 and because of it he is obligated to offer sacrifices for sins, as for the people, so also for himself. 4 And no one takes the honor to himself, but receives it when he is called by Yahuah, even as Aaron was. 5 So also Yahusha did not glorify himself so as to become a high priest, but Yahuah who said to Yahusha

"YOU ARE MY SON, TODAY I HAVE BEGOTTEN YOU";

6 just as Yahuah says also in another passage,

"YOU ARE A PRIEST FOREVER ACCORDING TO THE ORDER OF MELCHIZEDEK."

7 In the days of Yahusha’s flesh (when he was fully human in every way), Yahusha offered up both prayers and supplications with loud crying and tears to the One (God, Yahuah, The Shema) able to save Yahusha from death, and Yahusha was heard because of Yahusha’s piety (reverent obedience to The Law see Zachariah Chapter 3). 8 Although Yahusha was a Son, Yahusha learned obedience (to the ONE GOD) from the things which he suffered. 9 And having been made perfect (Yahusha was not born perfect being simply a man), Yahusha became (he was not always, he BECAME after his submission and death on Passover) to all those who obey Yahuah, the source of eternal salvation, 10 being designated by Yahuah as a high priest (from among men verse 1) according to the order of Melchizedek (see my book Melchizedek and The Passover Lamb). 11 Concerning Yahusha we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. (that is a true statement especially today)

The High Priest in Israel at the time even knew this concept, which is WHY they sacrificed Yahusha.  Caiaphas when confronted with the issue of Yahusha realized it was "better for one innocent man to die, then for the entire nation of Israel to perish".  Caiaphas considers, with "the Chief Priests and Pharisees", what to do about Yahusha, whose influence was spreading. They worry that if they "let him go on like this, everyone will believe in him, and the Romans will come and destroy both our holy place and our nation." Caiaphas makes a political calculation, suggesting that it would be better for "one man to die than for the whole nation to be destroyed".  What Caiaphas didn't realize is that he was exactly right but didn't understand what he was saying.  Yahusha, however, did understand exactly what was required.  One innocent man had to die, so that the children of Israel would not perish.  By dying innocent Yahusha could save the eternal lives of the sons of Yahuah called “Remnant Israel” for all those who would obey his example.

Now, DEATH still reigned in Yahusha's genetic body (made evident by the fact he died) because he was human, however that sentence was not justified in Yahusha because he had not sinned as High Priest.  So, death could not hold Yahusha... he was innocent of sin therefore did not deserve the fleshly penalty of death in his body.  By breaking the cycle of "sin and you die" Yahusha literally defeated death.  He broke the cycle of the law of sin and you die by decree, and purchased the salvation for the children of Israel by becoming the Passover Lamb whose blood covers the death decrees in The Law.  So Caiaphas got it right, even though he didn't realize it.  He was being used by Yahuah to bring about The Plan of Salvation and it came out of Caiaphas’s mouth.

How does this apply to you and me?

Yahusha was destined by Yahuah to be the Passover Sacrifice for our sin IF we enter into The Yahushaic Covenant and keep Passover in remembrance of Yahusha’s sacrifice.  So our having faith in Yahusha as that Passover sacrifice and having faith in the Promise of Yahuah to accept it... we are washed white as snow in the eyes of Yahuah by the blood of the Passover Lamb.  Our faith is demonstrated by our works in obedience to His Laws which overturn Adam's disobedience.  We, like Yahusha, put aside our own will in favor of Yahuah's.  Having put our faith in the cleansing blood of Yahusha (by keeping Passover in light of Yahusha) and believing that Yahuah accepts his sacrifice on our behalf, we then die innocent as well; because the condition of "guilt vs. innocence" is not based on our works but on the Righteousness of Yahuah.  If Yahuah finds us innocent in the blood of Yahusha, WE ARE INNOCENT of sin when we die regardless of what we have done.

The evidence that we have "faith" is that we obey His Laws and specifically keep Passover. 

1 Corinthians 5:8

Therefore let us keep the Festival (of Passover and Unleavened Bread), not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.

1 Corinthians 11

23 For I received from the King that which I also delivered to you: that the King Yahusha on the same night in which He was betrayed (on Passover) took bread; 24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, “Take, eat; this is (Passover meal) My body (transposition of Passover, physical to spiritual parallel) which is broken for you; do this (keep Passover) in remembrance of Me.” 25 In the same manner He also took the (Passover) cup after supper, saying, “This (Passover) cup is the new covenant in My blood (physical to spiritual parallel). This do, as often (yearly on Passover) as you drink it, in remembrance of Me.” 26 For as often (yearly on Passover) as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the King’s death till He comes.

Next: The Book of Life... Signed, Sealed, and Delivered!
