Shalom! My name is Adam Pastor

Welcome to ADONI MESSIAH which means
"My Lord Messiah" -
a fitting epithet to who Jesus (or Yeshua) is!

Here, I attempt to present the Apostolic Truths according to the Scriptures, that there is
One GOD, the Father, namely, YAHWEH,
and One Lord, GOD's only begotten Son,
Yeshua the Messiah.

And that one day YAHWEH will send His Son back to Earth to inaugurate the Everlasting Kingdom of GOD

Interesting Quotes - Series 2

  • Adam Clarke
    ... the doctrine of the eternal Sonship of Christ is, in my opinion, anti-scriptural, and highly dangerous ... This doctrine of the eternal Sonship, I MUST and DO consider as an AWFUL HERESY.
  • Adam Clarke
    To say that he was begotten from all eternity, is, in my opinion, absurd; and the phrase 'eternal Son' is a positive self contradiction.

    DIVINE INSANITY: God killed himself on the cross to save his own creation from his own wrath !
  • Anthony Buzzard
    Jesus' Message about the Kingdom of God. ... that God, in the person of His Son and Agent, Christ, the promised Messiah, intends to establish just government and universal peace on earth and to grant immortality to those who love Him.
  • Dr. J.R. BEARD, 1846
    ... the Anti-trinitarianism here spoken of is exclusively Christian. We have no fellowship or sympathy with any opinions which deny that Jesus received a superhuman commission, and was endowed with superhuman qualities and powers."
  • Donald R. Snedeker, 1998
    Unitarianism is not synonymous with Unitarian-Universalism. The latter involves little emphasis on Scripture or even the need to believe in God or Jesus, whereas the former depends heavily upon Scripture and receiving Jesus as God's only-begotten Son.
  • Colin Brown - EX AUDITU, 7, 1991 (pgs. 87-89)
    The crux of the matter lies in how we understand the term “Son of God” and the questions that it poses about the relation of Jesus to the one whom he called Father… One may well ask whether the term Son of God is in and of itself a divine title at all. ... the title “son of God” is not in itself a designation of personal deity or an expression of metaphysical distinctions within the Godhead. Indeed, to be a “Son of God” one has to be a being who is not God. It is a designation for a creature indicating a special relationship with God. In particular, it denotes God’s representative, God’s vice-regent. It is a designation of kingship, identifying the king as God’s Son. Therefore I take the application of the title “Son of God” at his baptism to be an affirmation of Jesus as God’s Son-king in virtue of his anointing by the Spirit. ... The designation of Jesus as “Son of God in power according to the Spirit of holiness by his resurrection from the dead” (Rom. 1:4) is a reaffirmation of that Son-kingship with divine authority, insofar as by the resurrection the Spirit has overturned the negative verdict of the Sanhedrin in condemning Jesus to death as a blasphemer who sought to lead Israel astray. ... It is a common but patent misreading of the opening of John’s Gospel to read it as if it said: “In the beginning was the Son, and the Son was with God and the Son was God” (John 1:1). What has happened here is the substitution of Son for Word (Greek logos), and thereby the Son is made a member of the Godhead which existed from the beginning. But if we follow carefully the thought of John’s prologue, it is the Word that preexisted eternally with God and is God. The same Word that made all things and is the light that enlightens human kind “became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father” (John 1:14; cf. vv. 3 and 8). In other words Son-language in John denotes the Word made flesh in Jesus who as such speaks God’s Word to human beings on earth.
