The central revelation of scripture is that Yahweh of the old books came in human form as Yah-Is-Savior or Yahshua, known to the world as Jesus Christ. To further prove this, we need only go to the Messiah’s forerunner, John the Baptist. Everyone knows that John came in the spirit and power of Elijah and pointed the multitudes to the Messiah.
We learned earlier that the Spirit of the Messiah was in the prophets. His Spirit speaks through them. The voice of John was crying in the wilderness telling the people to prepare Yahweh’s way in the earth. “The voice of him that cries in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.” Isaiah 40: 3. We definitely know that this is speaking of John the Baptist because Matthew quotes this passage in his gospel. “For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 3: 3.
Examining this we see that John was saying for them to prepare “the way of the LORD.” Matthew quotes Isaiah who wrote down the original prophecy that John would fulfill. We have already proven above that “the LORD” is the title that the translators chose to substitute for “Yahweh,” the Hebrew name of God. Yahweh is, in fact, the very name of the Creator, our Maker, the Ruler of heaven and earth (see above in Ex. 3: 15 where Moses was told that Yahweh was His “name forever and is my memorial unto all generations”). Now let us read this passage that John was fulfilling again: “Prepare ye the way of Yahweh (the LORD).
John the Baptist, when he fulfilled this prophecy in Isaiah, knew perfectly well who was arriving on the scene. He certainly knew who he was announcing. I was none other than Yahshua, the Anointed One, the Messiah. He was saying, Prepare the way of Yahweh. He is coming in human form–in a human flesh body. Yahweh is come to save His people from their sins. Yah-in-human-form is Yahweh’s way to give man hope in the resurrection. The appearance of Yah in a human flesh body, is the way Yahweh makes Himself known to His creation (“I and my Father are one…If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father”).
John the Baptist was that voice of one, the forerunner of Yahweh and His coming in human flesh. “Prepare the way of Yahweh. Make His paths straight.” Those are Yahweh’s paths, where He would be walking literally in human form. Jesus/Yahshua (Yah-Is-Savior is what it means in Hebrew) is His way; He is the way, the path, the course leading us from death to life, from mortality to immortality. Yahshua/Yah-Is-Savior is The Road to Immortality, which happens to be the title of this book.
John was the forerunner of Yahweh. He was the last of the old testament prophets, for he announced the blessed appearance of Yahweh in human form. He was the herald of the fulfilling of all the prophecies of all the other prophets of olden times. He was more than a prophet, for it was John who bore witness to Yahweh’s coming as the Messiah.
Everyone will tell you that Isaiah 9: 6 speaks of the Messiah, the one they call Jesus Christ. “Unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given…and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.” The Everlasting Father? The Christ child would grow up to become the “Everlasting Father”?
Everyone will tell you that John was the forerunner of Christ the Messiah. And all will tell you that Isaiah 9: 6 speaks of Christ. Therefore, John was the herald of “The Everlasting Father,” Yahweh Himself–in human form!
