The Divine Essence of Jesus

2. Jesus Divine Essence

We pray a God who is logical, but often those who try to establish the deity of YESHUA fail to scrutinize the Scriptures and hide ELOHIM in a cloud of confusion and illogicality that leads many not to take God's Word seriously.

The Bible is a collection of several manuscripts containing revelations of the Holy Spirit transmitted to the patriarchs and prophets. By divine inspiration, a few manuscripts have been compiled into a single book that teaches us the fundamentals we need to believe in God, understand his precept of love and obtain salvation for our souls. The Bible is full of symbolism and double meanings. The message is clear and obvious, but at the same time conceals a heavenly wisdom that cannot be grasped with a superficial understanding of words.

  • John 3:12 "If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?"

The prologue to John's Gospel affirms that YESHUA is and has always been God, but it also seeks to explain, to some extent, the nature of YESHUA's existence and his role within the Godhead.

  • John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." |Berean Standard Bible|

  • John 1:1 "In the beginning was the one who is called the Word. The Word was with God and was truly God." |Contemporary English Version|

  • John 1:1 "In the origin The Word had been existing and That Word had been existing with God and That Word was himself God." |A

In order to understand the essence of YESHUA and the role He plays in the fulfillment of YAHWEH's plan, it is essential to think outside the material, visual and tangible framework. When you begin to perceive him just as he's described in the Bible, i.e. not just a human being but "THE WORD", you'll notice that the ambiguity surrounding his role disappears, and the intrinsic unity between YAHWEH and YESHUA will become more evident every time you read verses referring to him. But to help you understand this, let's put several verses into context.

Let's start with etymology...

The term "Word" is derived from the Greek word "logos", which refers to reason or thought, and from which we get the word "logic", which conveys knowledge, wisdom, reason and revelation.

When we wish to utter a word, we must first conceive the idea in our thoughts. And although our thoughts are invisible, they do exist and, without them, we cannot do anything at all. In order for our thoughts to become visible, they must leave the invisible realm and enter the physical world. This transition from the invisible to the visible requires us to transform our invisible thoughts into a verbal command. The brain communicates our thoughts to our mouths, where they become logos, or spoken words. Once the word leaves our mouth, it enters the physical world and produces the desired effect.

If every spoken word is the expression of the thought that preceded its utterance, then first ask yourself the following questions:

  • Are we able to express our opinions and feelings without involving our thoughts?

  • When we speak or say things to express our ideas, are our words distinct from us?

Now do this mental exercise, don't think about anything at all, and try to speak. What do you notice? Without thoughts, it's impossible to speak, because our speech is intrinsically tied to our thoughts.

This simple analogy helps us better understand the intrinsic relationship between YAHWEH and YESHUA, and how God the Father worked with God the Son (i.e. the Word) to bring about Creation. To this effect, the Bible mentions several times the mystery of the divine association through which YAHWEH created all things through YESHUA (His Word).

  • Ephesians 3:9 "and to make all see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the ages has been hidden in God who created all things through Jesus Christ."

  • Colossians 1:15-17 "The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created, things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities. All things were created through Him and for Him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."

  • 1 Corinthians 8:6 "yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we exist. And there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we exist."

It is true that human beings tend to take their ability to speak words for granted, without realizing that this is a mystery known only to ELOHIM, but transferred to earthly beings so that they can communicate with each other. Note that celestial beings can also make use of speech, but that they also have the ability to communicate with each other by projecting their thoughts without needing to utter words.

  • I did things differently in the spirit realm than what we do here in the physical world. For instance, we do not communicate with our mouths and ears, but rather, we communicated with our minds. It was like projecting our words on thought waves and receiving the answer the same way. |Placebo: Conversation with God by Howard Pittman, Chap 7 - The Grand Tour|

God the Father had purposed in His mind to create the universe and everything therein, and when the time came to accomplish his desire, He uttered His "thoughts" by means of His Word, so that they came out of the invisible realm of His mind and became a concrete reality by the mighty power of the Holy Spirit. Note that the Bible also ascribes the divine work of Creation to the Holy Spirit, acknowledging that the Word of ELOHIM declared "Let there be Light!" but it was the Spirit who transformed inert matter into living creatures. Moreover, the Holy Spirit plays an important role in the process of humanity's ceaseless reproduction, His prerogative being the uninterrupted continuity of life.

  • Job 33:4 "The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life."

  • Psalm 104:30 "When You send Your Spirit, they are created, and You renew the face of the earth."

As our earthly vocabulary is not sufficiently sophisticated to describe the complexity of celestial phenomena, it was to this "utterance of His Word, His Logos, His Speech" that the scholars and scribes of antiquity attributed the term "Son", in reference to the "spoken Word". 

May the Holy Spirit guide you in understanding this message.
