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



Enjoy!

DID GOD GIVE HIMSELF OR HIS ONLY SON? by GERALD IHLE

DID GOD GIVE HIMSELF OR HIS ONLY SON?

If Jesus is NOT God and Christians go on saying that he is, then something very profound is lost in theology.  To say that God died on the cross is to miss the suffering love the Father had for his tortured Son agonizing on the cross.  ...

I believe the Abraham and Isaac story is in the Bible for a reason.  God wanted to test Abraham to see if his faith was strong enough to obey him even if it meant giving up his son, Isaac, as a sacrifice on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem.  The story reveals the anguish of a dedicated father having to choose between his son or God. 
It was a hard choice.  Abraham was not asked to sacrifice himself!  His choice would be harder than self-sacrifice!  God never intended to let Abraham go through with it.  It was a test of love as well as of faith.  At the last moment God provided a ram for sacrifice in place of Abraham’s son.  Abraham was to call that place on Mount Moriah “YAHWEH WILL PROVIDE.”
[YAHWEH-YIREH]
So Abraham called the name of the place “YAHWEH will provide” as it is said to this day,
“On the Mount of YAHWEH it shall be provided” (Gen 22:14)
What God did not require of Abraham, he would fulfill in the same place at a later time in history, to show his love for the world by giving up his beloved Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for the salvation of a sinful world: “In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only son into the world” (1 Jn 4:9).  Rather than God giving up himself to death[1], the heavenly Father gave up his Son to die on the cross.
God required more of himself than he required of Abraham.
[1] Which GOD cannot do seeing that GOD CANNOT DIE!
