Yeshua said: "I have come in My Father's Name and you do not receive Me.  If ANOTHER comes in HIS OWN NAME, him you would receive." (John 5:43)

The New Unger's Bible Dictionary states that:

"The Greek preposition, ANTI, in composition, denotes substitution, taking the place of another; hence, 'false messiah'.... An anti-messiah is one who opposes [Yeshua], whether he opposes the doctrine of His deity or His humanity; whether he sets himself up against Him in respect to His priestly office, by substituting other methods of atoning for sin and finding acceptance with Elohim; His Kingly office, by claiming authority to exact laws in His assembly contrary to His laws, or to dispense with His commandments; or His prophetic office, by claiming authority to add to, alter, or take away from the revelation that He has given in His Word. This is agreeable to the description of an anti-messiah."(7)

Shockingly, in contrast to the Hebrew Yeshua, the Greek Jesus fits each one of these qualifications.

1. Yahshua is Yahweh, while at the same time remaining under the authority of the Father. Jesus, in contrast, is the co-equal, second person of the Trinity. Jesus thereby opposes, both Yahshua's deity, and the truth about his humanity - that is, the echad YHWH taking the form of flesh.

2. Yahshua made atonement for the sins of the repentant, Torah-obedient seeker of truth. Jesus removes the definition of sin by his supposed nailing of the law to the cross.

3. Yahshua expounded upon the Torah, coming not to destroy, but to establish all that was written in the Tanakh (Matthew 5:17, Luke 24:27). Jesus exacts laws in direct opposition to the laws of ucwhy, as he dispenses with the Ten Words, the entirety of the Torah, and the Eternal Torah covenant; all things which even the apostle Paul affirmed could NOT Scripturally be done (see Romans 3:31 and Galations 3:15,17).

4. Yahshua verified that not one jot or tittle has passed away from the Torah (Matthew 5:18). Jesus claims authority to add to, alter, and take away from the revelation which YHWH has given in His word.

The historical facts are that the Man, Yahshua, or Yeshua of Nazareth, walked this earth 2,000 years ago as the embodiment of the Divine Messiah YHWH, but no one called "Jesus Christ", nor anyone who supported what "Jesus" supports ever walked this earth as any Scriptural messiah, or for that matter, as any messiah at all. The Hebrew Yeshua is found in the ancient Hebrew Scriptures; The Greek Jesus only appears in our present day translations. The Hebrew Yeshua came to uphold His Father's Torah, and establish it as eternally binding on all humanity, and if you will pursue a Torah submissive lifestyle and system of beliefs, ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES, you will find that the Greek Jesus promotes a "different gospel".

"As Messianic believers--specifically Torah keeping Messianic believers--we reject the Greek Jesus: a blond, blue-eyed Caucasian, pre-tribulation dispensationalist, who was drawn up by the...imaginations of the Roman harlot church.

"They have remade Yahshua, the Torah observant Rabbi, who raised up true Torah observant disciples, as the scripture promised the real Messiah would, and given him a revisionist Roman makeover, so that today we have the Hebrew Yeshua vs. The Greek Jesustwo separate historical figures, representing two separate systems. One upholds His Father's Torah; the other kills Jews, hates Ephraimites, eats pig, and [in short], is...a Roman perversion of the real Rabbi Yahshua of Nazareth.....

"The truth of the Renewed Covenant and other Scriptures is that only the real Messiah will cause Israel to return to the Torah. Yahshua, and will yet bring in many more, as untold millions hold onto the set-apart blood atonement of Messiah, all the while re-discovering their Torah background through Him." (8)

Having come to the knowledge of the truth, what then shall we do? You ask, "Then I've been serving an anti-messiah all my life and would have been lost had I not come across this book?" Dear reader, I was in the same shoes for many years, and as far as I knew, I was supporting the truth. Would I have been lost for all eternity because I sinned by mistake? hwhy is a loving Elohim who does not desire that ANY should perish, and to this end, He ordained that atonement be made for unintentional sin through an offering of blood.

Numbers 15:27. If a being sins by mistake, then he shall bring a female goat a year old as a sin offering, [28] and the priest shall make atonement for the being who strays by mistake, when he sins by mistake before hwhy, to make atonement for him, and it shall be forgiven him. [29] For him who does whatever by mistake, there is one Torah, both for him who is native among the children of Israel and for the stranger who sojourns in their midst.

YHWH is the same yesterday, today and forever, for which cause He entered the world in the similitude of a Man, that He might make atonement for unintentional sin through His own blood at the stake.

Psalm 40:6. Slaughtering and meal offering You did not desire; You have given Me a Body;(9) burnt offering and sin offering you did not ask for. [7] Then I said, See, I have come; in the scroll of the book it is prescribed for Me. I have delighted to do Your pleasure, O My Elohim, and Your Torah is within my heart.

Hebrews 10:5. Therefore coming into the world He says, "Slaughtering and meal offering you did not desire, but a body you have prepared for Me. [6] In burnt offerings and offerings for sin You did not delight. [7] Then I said, See, I come - in the scroll of the book it is written concerning me - to do your desire, O Elohim...." [12] For He, having one slaughter offering for sins for all time, sat down at the right hand of Elohim.... [14] for by one offering He has perfected for all time those being set-apart.

No, YHWH is not an Elohim who would damn you or I to eternal death for sin committed in ignorance. At the same time, He is a just Elohim, whereby He states that there is NO ATONEMENT made for WILLFUL TRANSGRESSION.

Numbers 15:30. But the being that does whatever defiantly, whether he is native or a stranger, he reviles YHWH, and that being shall be cut off from among his people. [31] Because he has despised the word of YHWH, and has broken His command, that being shall certainly be cut off; his crookedness is upon him.

Sirach 5:5. Do not be so confident of forgiveness that you add sin to sin. [6] Do not say, "His mercy is great, He will forgive the multitude of my sins", for both mercy and wrath are with Him, and His anger will rest on sinners. [7] Do not delay to turn back to YHWH, and do not postpone it from day to day; for suddenly the wrath of YHWH will come upon you, and at the time of punishment you will perish. (Apocrypha)

Dear reader, in spirit, we were serving the true Elohim and the true Messiah, but in truth, we had succumbed to deception and were believing a lie.

John 4:22. [We worshiped] what [we did] not know. [But now] we worship what we know, because salvation (YAHSHUA) is of the Yahudim. [23] [Indeed], the hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers shall worship the Father in spirit and truth, for the Father also does seek such to worship Him. [24] Elohim is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.

What we used to do, is therefore now of little importance. The important thing is that we mend our ways where we have erred and do TESHUVAH or repentance (literally, turn around and go the other way) so that we know where we are going and get headed in the right direction once and for all.

The promise of the real Messiah is that "If you love me, you shall guard My commands. And I shall ask the Father, and He shall give you....the Spirit of the Truth, whom the world is unable to receive, because it does not see Him or know Him. But you know Him, for He stays with you and shall be in you. I do not leave you orphans - I am coming to you. Yet a little while, and the world no longer sees Me, but you shall see me, because I live, and you shall live. In that day you shall know that I am in My Father, and you in Me, and I in you. He who possesses My commands and guards them, it is he who loves me. And he who loves Me shall be loved by My Father, and I shall love him and manifest Myself to him." (Jn. 14:15-21)

4. "December 25th was celebrated by Pagans from all over the world, and has been the "birthday" of Nimrod, Baal, Moloch, Dagon, Hercules, Atlas, Mithras, Krishna, Zeus, Osiris, Tammuz, Horus, Apollo, Amon Ra, Bacchus, Jupiter (Zeus-father), Hermes, Indra and Buddha (Guatama Sidhartha was born on a different date, but as "Buddha", his birth is celebrated on Dec. 25.) Buddha means light-bringer, just as the latin word Lucifer means. This evidence only shows who is really lurking behind "Christmas", because there was a Nativity of the Sun already long established."

9. Here the Masorete scribes altered the text to read "you have given me open ears", in order to hide the clear Messianic prophecy. That the original text read, "a body" is verified both by the dead sea scrolls, the LXX and Shaul's quotation of the verse in Hebrews 10:5.

This website exists as an outreach in good faith of Real Messiah Teaching Ministry and Fellowship to the international community.

Real Messiah Press is a Nazarene Israelite project dedicated to reconnecting Christians to their Hebrew roots, dissolving anti-law and
anti-Semitic biases, and fostering Jewish acceptance of the REAL MESSIAH who walked in first century Nazareth.
If you have wondered why a Hebrew Messiah, born of a Jewish maiden, would have a Greek name, and why He whose mission was allegedly to restore the pure religion would be chronicled in the language of commerce....
If you have wondered how the One claiming fulillment of 4,000+ years of Messianic prophecy by Israel's sages could support the disintegration of the Law and the replacement of Israel with Gentile Christianity....
Or if you find yourself questioning the credibility of the "virgin birth" and His alleged preexistence and Deity....
Then Almighty YAHWEH has a message for you, and has directed your steps to this place so that His servants could share it. We are here to help you return to the true teachings of Abraham, Moses, the Messiah, and the apostles  teachings which are as old as the world itself. Others have done it, and ARE doing it TODAY. You too CAN return to the faith once delivered.
