Yeshua is divine and is the Messiah of Israel, but is not Elohim



Deuteronomy 6:4-5 “hear, oh Israel, YHWH is our Elohim, YHWH is one.” You love YHWH your Elohim with all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength”.

Isaiah 44:6 “thus says YHWH, YHWH of hosts, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer:”I am the first and I am the last, and there is no Elohim besides me.”

Isaiah 42:8 “I am YHWH, that is my name; my glories to another will not give, nor my praise to graven images“.

Exodus 33:20 “most said: you will not see my face;” because no man see me, and live.”

Elohim is very clear: it is our Elohim, he is our King, our Redeemer, the first and the last, will not give his glory to another, and there is no other like it. Besides that tells us that we must love him with all our being, as our and only Elohim.



Yeshua is the Messiah of Israel promised in the Tanack, descendant of David, through his father Yosef biological. The divine nature is, because it comes from the father, may be before the father and see him, resurrected and in the lives all the fullness of deity. But, it is not Elohim.

Here are the verses:

Elohim says that Yeshua is his son: Matthew 3:16-17 “and Yeshua, after that he was baptized, then rose from the water; and behold heavens were opened to him, and he saw the spirit of Elohim which descending like a dove, and coming upon him. “And there was a voice from heaven, saying: this is my beloved son, in whom I have complacency“.

Yeshua Messiah confesses: John 4:25-46 “told the woman: I know that it has come the Messiah, called the Christ;” When he comes will declare us all things. “Yeshua said to him: I am, speaking with you”.

The disciples confess that Yeshua is the Messiah: John 1:41 “this first found his own brother Simon and said to him: we have found the Messiah”.

Elohim says that Yeshua is the Messiah: Matthew 16:16-17 “Simon Peter answered and said: you are the anointed one, the son of the living Elohim.” Then Yeshua said to him: Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, because you did not reveal flesh nor blood, but my father who is in heaven.

Peter confirmed it as son of the father: 2 Peter 1:17 “because when he received of Elohim Almighty honor and glory, a voice saying was sent to you from the magnificent glory: this is my beloved son, in which I have complacency“.

Yeshua testified that he was the Messiah before the Sanhedrin:

Matthew 26:63-64 “But Yeshua was silent. Then the high priest said to him: I adjure you by the living Elohim, that you tell us if you are you the anointed one (Messiah), the son of Elohim. Yeshua said to him: you have said; “and moreover I say unto you, that now you will see the son of man sitting at the right hand of the power of Elohim, and coming in the clouds of heaven”.

It says in the Gospel of John 1:14 “and the word was made flesh, and dwelt among us (and we saw his glory, glory as of the only begotten of the father), full of grace and truth“.

Yeshua testify of Elohim and the: John 17:3 “and this is eternal life: that they might know you, the only true and Yeshua ha Mashiach, whom you have sent.”

Also in John 1:18 “Elohim nobody saw him ever; the only begotten son, who is in the bosom of the father, he has given you to know”.



  • To Abraham: Genesis 17:1 “when Abram was ninety-nine years, YHWH appeared, and said to him: I am the Almighty Elohim (the Shaday);” walk before me, and be perfect.”
  • A Isaac Genesis 26:24 “and YHWH appeared to him the same night, and said unto him: I am the Elohim of your father Abraham;” fear not, for I am with you. And I will bless you and multiply your descendants for my servant Abraham’s sake.”
  • To Jacob: Genesis 28:13 “and now behold, YHWH was on her, and said: I am YHWH and Elohim of your father Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac.” The land on which you are lying down will give it to you and to your offspring.
  • Moses in Exodus 3:15 “Moreover Elohim said to Moses: so say unto the children of Israel:”YHWH 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 with him will be remembrance of me from generation to generation.”



They appear in the text of the renewed Covenant:

  • 52 times the phrase “My father”
  • 45 times the phrase “Son of Elohim”
  • 2 times the phrase “My Elohim” said by Yeshua
  • 0 times the phrase “I’m Elohim”.

Let’s take a look at some of those:

Mark 10:6 “but at the beginning of the creation, male and female made them Elohim“.

Luke 18:19 “Yeshua said to him: why call me good?” “There is none good, but only Elohim”.

Mark 13:19 “because those days will be tribulation which there never has been since the beginning of the creation which Elohim created, up to this time, or there will be”.

John 14:28 “…” because I have said that I am going to the father; “for the father is greater than I”.

John 14:8-11 “Felipe said: Lord, show us the father, and is enough for us.” Yeshua said to him: do so long ago that I am with you, and not have known me, Philip? Which I has seen me has seen the father; would like, as you say: show us the father? Don’t you think that I am in the father, and the father in me? The words I speak, don’t speak them by my own, but the father inhabits in me, he does the works. Believe me that I am in the father, and the father is in me”.

Matthew 4: 10 then Yeshua said to him: go, Satan, for it is written: the Lord worships your Elohim, and only serves him”.

Matthew 12:50 ” because anyone who does the will of my father than the heavens, that’s my brother, and sister, and mother “.

Matthew 26:29 “And I say unto you that from now on I will not drink more of this fruit of the vine, until that day that drink it new with you in my father’s Kingdom”.

Luke 22:29 “I, therefore, you assign a Kingdom, as my father assigned me to me”.

Luke 22:42 “saying: father, if you like, pass me this cup;” but not my will, but yours be done.”

Luke 23:46 “then Yeshua, crying with a loud voice, he said: father, into your hands I commend my spirit.” And having said this, he expired.

Luke 24:49 “Behold, I send the promise of my father upon you; but Tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.”

John 15:10 “if ye keep my commandments, shall abide in my love; as well as I have kept my father’s commandments, and abide in his love.”

John 15:15 “already not you call servants, for the servant does not know what his Lord; “but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from my father, I have given them to you to know”.

John 16:23 “on that day no you will ask me nothing. “Of true, of true, I say unto you that whatsoever ye shall ask the father in my name, it will be given”.


Even after his death and risen followed saying the same thing

Revelation 3:21 “to him who overcomes, I will give you to sit with me on my throne, as I also overcame and sat down with my father in his throne”.

Revelation 3:5 “he who overcomes shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before my father and before his angels.”

We ended with a verse that implies and confirms everything

1 Timothy 2:5 “because there is a single Elohim, and one mediator between Elohim and men, Yeshua Mashiach  man.”
