o 1 Peter 2:5-10 – 5 you also, as living stones, are being built up, a spiritual house, a set-apart priesthood, to offer up spiritual slaughter offerings acceptable to Elohim through יהושע Messiah. 6 Because it is contained in the Scripture, “See, I lay in Tsiyon a chief corner-stone, chosen, precious, and he who believes on Him shall by no means be put to shame.” 7 This preciousness, then, is for you who believe; but to those who are disobedient, “The stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone,” 8 and “A stone of stumbling and a rock that makes for falling,”

o Romans 10:9-13 – 9 That if you confess with your mouth the Master יהושע and believe in your heart that Elohim has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, and so is saved. 11 Because the Scripture says, “Whoever puts his trust in Him shall not be put to shame.” 12 Because there is no distinction between Yehuḏi and Greek, for the same Master of all is rich to all those calling upon Him. 13 For “everyone who calls on the Name of יהוה shall be saved.

FEEDS THE MULTITUDES BREAD
- 2 Kings 4:42-44 – 42 Now a man came from Ba‛al Shalishah, and brought the man of Elohim bread of the first-fruits, twenty loaves of barley bread, and newly ripened grain in his knapsack.

For thus said יהוה, ‘Eat and have some left over.’ ” 44 And he set it before them, and they ate and had some left over, according to the word of יהוה.
- John 6:9-12-8 – One of His taught ones, Andri, the brother of Shim‛on Kĕpha, said to Him, 9 “Here is a boy who has five barley loaves and two fishes, but what are these for so many?” 10 And יהושע said, “Make the people sit down.” Now there was much grass in the place, and the men, numbering about five thousand, sat down. 11 And יהושע took the loaves, and having given thanks He distributed them to the taught ones, and the taught ones to those sitting down. And the same with the fish, as much as they wished. 12 And when they were filled, He said to His taught ones, “Gather the broken pieces that are left over, so that none gets wasted.”
- Luke 9:13-17 – 13 But He said to them, “You give them to eat.” And they said, “We have no more than five loaves and two fishes, unless we go and buy food for all these people.” 14 For there were about five thousand men.

2 thoughts on “Yeshua is God”
The Son of God was made Lord and Christ by the one true God, His Father. The Father gave the Son all authority in heaven and on earth so with that authority He will judge in place of the Father. The Son of God will also have the title, God because the title, God is not a title given to any one particular being. It’s a title given to one who has authority, even Satan has the title god of this world.In the new creation (the Kingdom of God) the Son will hold similar titles as His Father because His Father gave Him the authority to have those titles.
1 Corinthians 15:24-28 After that the end will come, when he will turn the Kingdom over to God the Father, having destroyed every ruler and authority and power. For Christ must reign until he humbles all his enemies beneath his feet. And the last enemy to be destroyed is death. For the Scriptures say, “God has put all things under his authority.” Of course, when it says “all things are under his authority,” that does not include God himself, who gave Christ his authority. Then, when all things are under his authority, the Son will put himself under God’s authority, so that God, who gave his Son authority over all things, will be utterly supreme over everything everywhere.
When you read the prophecy about the Son in Isaiah 9:6 you find Isaiah talking about the Son in prophetic language, in other words, something that was going to take place in the future. When Isaiah says, “He shall be called” he is referring the Son receiving those tiles in the future, which means, He didn’t have them when Isaiah was saying it. The Son shall be called, “Mighty God” not Almighty God. He will also be called, “Everlasting Father because, just as the Father has life in Himself, He has also granted the Son to have life in Himself and since it’s the Son raising His people from the dead, He become their Everlasting Father. There is so much more to share but I think this is a good start.
If you read the article above you will find that Yeshua takes the place of YHVH in multiple prophetic passages. Zechariah 12:10 also gives some deep insight when it says ” And they shall look on ME whom they pierced, and they shall mourn for HIM as one mourns for his only son.” They shall look on ME, and they shall mourn HIM. Both first person and third person pronouns are used to describe this ONE who was pierced and who is mourned for. Yeshua is YHVH and yet is other. It is a mystery, and yet it is clearly demonstrated in the passages quoted in this article.
