THE MESSENGER OF YAHWEH'S PRESENCE

From "The Real Messiah" by MattithYah Coover, © 2009. You may link to this page & make free printed copies. Reproduction on other websites is prohibited. "Behold, I am against the prophets, says YHWH, every one who steals My Words from his neighbour." (Jer 23:30)


Isaiah 63:1. Who is this coming from Edom, with garments of glowing colors from Botsrah, who is robed in splendor, striding forward in the greatness of His strength? "It is I (said Yahweh), who speak in righteousness, mighty to save." [2] Why is there red on Your raiment, and Your garments like one who treads the winepress? [3] "I have trodden the winepress alone (says Yahweh), and from the peoples no one was with Me....Their blood is sprinkled upon My garments and I have defiled all My raiment. [4] For a day of vengeance is in My heart, and the year of My Redeemer has come. [5] And I looked but there was none helping, and I was astonished that their was no intercessor, So My own Arm saved for Me... [8b] and He (Yahweh) became their Savior. [9] In all their distress He was distressed, and the Messenger of His Presence saved them. In His love and compassion He redeemed them, and He lifted them up and carried them all the days of old."

Deuteronomy 4:37. And because He loved your fathers, therefore He chose their Seed after them, and brought you out of bondage with His Presence, with His great Power.

Isaiah 44:6. Thus said AND His Redeemer, Yahweh of Hosts: "I am ALEPH TAW (first and last), besides Me there is no Elohim. [7] And who is like Me? Let him call and declare it, and lay it before Me, since I appointed the everlasting people and the events that are coming... [8] ...Is there an Elohim besides me? There is no other Rock; I know not one."

The KJV translates this word, "rock", as "god", but in Hebrew the word is "TSUR", which means "rock, pebble, flint, stone, mass, or rocky crag; also a title of Yahweh with a focus on stability, and possibly as a place of security and safety."(1) In the Apostolic Scriptures we then find that this Rock or Redeemer aspect of Elohim was the part of Yahweh which later revealed itself in the Man, Yahshua the Messiah.

1 Corinthians 10:1. For I do not wish you to be ignorant brothers, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, [2] and all were immersed into Moses (or the Torah) in the cloud and in the sea (even as water immersion in Yahshua's name represents today), [3] and all ate the same spiritual food, [4] and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed, and the Rock was the Messiah.

In order for Yahshua to be THE ROCK, however, it is necessary that He also be the Redeemer whom Isaiah identifies as "Yahweh of Hosts" (see Isaiah 44:6,8 ), and who revealed Himself to Joshua as the "Prince of Hosts" who leads the heavenly armies of Yahweh.

Joshua 5:13. And it came to be when Joshua was by Jericho, that he lifted his eyes and looked and saw a Man standing opposite him with His sword drawn in His hand. And Joshua went to Him and said, "Are You for us or for our adversaries?" [14] And He said, "No, for I have now come as Prince of the Hosts (or 'Head of the Armies') of Yahweh." And Joshua fell on his face to the earth and worshiped, and said to Him, "What is my Master saying to His servant?" [15] And the Prince of the Host of Yahweh said to Joshua, "Take your sandal off your foot, for the ground whereon you stand is set-apart."

Comparing this passage to the account of Moses and the burning bush, we find additional indications that the Prince of Hosts is, in fact, the "I Am" of the First Testament.

Exodus 3:2. And the Messenger of Yahweh appeared to (Moses) in a flame of fire from the midst of a bush. And (Moses) looked and saw the bush burning with fire, but the bush was not consumed.... [4b] and Elohim called to him from the midst of the bush and said, "Moses! Moses!" And he said, "Here I am." [5] And (the Messenger of Yahweh) said, "Do not come near here. Take your sandals off your feet, for the ground whereon you are standing is set-apart." [6] And He said, "I am the Elohim of your father, the Elohim of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.... [10] And now I am sending you to Pharoah, to bring My people, the children of Israel, out of Egypt...." [13] And Mosheh said to Elohim, "See, when I come to the children of Israel and say to them, 'The Elohim of your fathers has sent me to you', and they say, 'What is His Name?' what shall I say to them?" [14] And Yahweh said to Mosheh, "I Am that which I Am (EYAH ASHER EYAH)... Thus shall you say to the children of Israel, 'I Am (EYAH)has sent me to you.' [15] And Elohim said to Moses, "Thus you are to say to the children of Israel, 'Yahweh Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac, and the Elohim of Jacob has sent me to you. This is My Name forever, and this is my remembrance to all generations.'"

Later, in the song of Moses, following the drowning of Pharoah's army in the Red Sea, we find confirmation that the Right Arm of Yahweh or His Messiah is the Prince of Hosts or Man of War.

Exodus 15:3. Yahweh is a Man of war. Yahweh is His Name... [6] Your Right Hand, O Yahweh, has become great in power. Your Right Hand, O Yahweh, has crushed the enemy.

In the writings of James, the half-brother of Yahshua we read:

James 5:4. See, the wages of the workmen....and the cries of the reapers have reached the ears of Yahweh of Hosts.

Comparing this with the words of John the Baptiser, we see that James speaks of Yahshua, the overseer of the harvest.

Matthew 3:11b. He who is coming after me is greater than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to bear. He shall immerse you in the Set-apart Spirit and fire. [12] His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He shall thoroughly cleanse His threshing-floor, and gather His wheat into the storehouse, but the chaff He shall burn with unquenchable fire.

Paul likewise identifies Yahshua as "Yahweh of Hosts" in his letter to the Romans, where we read:

Romans 9:29. As Isaiah said before, If Yahweh of Hosts had not left us a SEED,(2) we would have become like Sodom, and we would have been made like Gomorrah.(3)

In Daniel 8:11,25 a little horn or beast power is prophesied to arise and "exalt itself as high as the Prince of Hosts, and take that which is continual away from Him, and throw down the foundation of His Temple.....and even stand against the Prince of princes." The Prince of Hosts or Princes is then identified as Yahshua in Daniel 9:25,26 where we read that "from the going forth of the command to restore and build Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince is seven weeks and sixty-two weeks.... and after the sixty-two weeks Messiah shall be cut off and have naught, and the people of a coming prince shall destroy the city and the Temple."

One chapter later He is also addressed as 'Michael' or "One who is like El', and identified as the one who fights against or opposes hashatan.

Daniel 10:10. A hand touched me, and set me trembling on my knees and on the palms of my hands... [12] and he said to me, "Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and to humble yourself before your Elohim, your words were heard, and I have come because of your words. [13] But the prince of the power of Persia (satan(4)) withstood me twenty-one days, and see, Michael, one of the Head Princes came to help me....

Turning to Jude where Michael contends with satan over the body of Moses, we also find that he has authority to raise from the dead, and in the resurrection of Moses on the mountain of Yahshua's transfiguration, we find another important link between the Arch-messenger, Michael, and the Messiah.

Jude 1:9. But Michael the arch-messenger, in contending with the Devil over the body of Moses, presumed not to bring against him a blasphemous accusation, but said, "Yahweh rebuke you."

Mark 9:2. Yahshua took Peter and James and John, and led them up to a high mountain alone by themselves. And He was transformed before them. [3] And His garments became glittering exceeding white, like snow, such as no launder on earth is able to whiten. [4] And there appeared to them Eliyah with Moses, and they were talking with Yahshua.... [7] And there came a cloud overshadowing them, and a voice came out of the cloud saying, "This is My Son, the Beloved, Hear Him!" [8] And suddenly, looking around, they no longer saw anyone with them, but only Yahshua.... [10] And they kept this matter to themselves, debating what the rising from the dead meant.In Revelation 12:7, we likewise find Michael's overthrowing of the devil equivalated with "the authority of the Messiah".

Revelation 12:7. And there came to be fighting in the heaven: Michael and His messengers fought against the dragon. And the dragon and his messengers fought, [8] but they were not strong enough, nor was there a place found for them in the heaven any longer. [9] And the great dragon was thrown out, that serpent of old, called the devil and hashatan, who leads all the world astray. He was thrown to the earth, and his messengers were thrown out with him. [10] And I heard a loud voice saying in the heaven, "Now have come the deliverance and the power and the reign of our Elohim, and the authority of HIS MESSIAH."

Finally Michael's identification as Daniel's Head in Daniel 10 confirms the truth of His identity.

Daniel 10:21 But let me declare to you what is written in the Scripture of Truth, and there is no one supporting me against these, except MICHAEL YOUR HEAD.(5)

1 Corinthians 11:3. I wish you to know that the HEAD of every man is MESSIAH.....and the head of Messiah is Elohim.

The Jewish sage, Philo, wrote:

"If there be any as yet unfit to be called the son of the Deity, let him press to take his place under His Firstborn, the Logos (Word or Innermost expression), who holds the eldership among the angels, their Archangel as it were. And many names are His, for He is called, 'the beginning,' and THE NAME of the Deity (YAHWEH), and His Logos (or Word), and the Man after His image, and 'He that sees,' that is Israel."(6)

"For as long as (mankind) falls short of perfection, he has the divine Logos as his leader; since there is an oracle which says, 'Lo, I send my Angel before your face, to guard you on your road, that he may bring you into the land which I have prepared for you: give heed to him, and hearken to him, disobey him not; for he will not withdraw from you; FOR MY NAME IS IN HIM. (Exod. 23:20)'"(7)

Now some may wonder whether this reduces Yahshua to the level of an angel, reflecting Jewish bias against His Messianic identity. Not as we today think of the word, especially considering the similarity between MALAKH, the Hebrew word for Angel, and MELEKH, the Hebrew word for King. Actually when the truth is told it reveals a historical Jewish belief in His deity! Remember, YAHSHUA or Michael is the one who is "like El" or "like the Father". He is the ARCHangel (literally arch-Messenger), meaning He is arched over or above the other ministering spirits (see Hebrews 1 ), and was only made lower than them while performing the role of Mashiyach ben Yoseph here on the earth (Psalm 8:4,5; Hebrews 2:9 ). But we'll see a different prophecy unfold when He returns as the conquering Mashiyach ben David.

Daniel 12:1. Now at the time (of the end) Michael shall stand up, the great Prince (or Head) who is standing over the sons of your people... and at that time your people shall be delivered, everyone who is found written in the book, [2] and many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth wake up, some to everlasting life, and some to reproaches, everlasting abhorrence. [3] And those who have insight shall shine like the brightness of the expanse, and those who lead many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever.

Matthew 24:30. And then the sign of the Son of Adam shall appear in the heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Adam coming on the clouds of the heaven with power and much esteem. [31] And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

1 Thessalonians 4:16. But the Master Himself shall come down from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the Chief of Messengers (or Archangel, meaning one who is above or arched over the angels), and with the trumpet of Yahweh.

Revelation 17:14. (And the kings of the earth) shall fight with the Lamb, and THE LAMB SHALL OVERCOME, for He is Master of masters and Sovereign of sovereigns. And those with Him are called, and chosen, and trustworthy.

Yahshua will indeed return as the Mighty Overcomer, as the Son which reflects the essence of the Father, with the voice of Michael (One who is like El) upon His lips. He will appear to us as EmmanuEl (El with us) and as Yahshua, the One in whom is found the very substance of Yahweh's Salvation; our Messiah Himself.

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.
