We know that Yahshua, the Christ was the begotten Son of God.
What we do not so well understand is that Barabbas means “son
of father”. In other words, Yahshua Barabbas was a type of
Satan, the created son, of God the Father. Therefore, the bible
identifies this character Yahshua Barabbas as a representative of
Satan in his surname as well as in his given name.
THE BEGINNING OF GENESIS 1:1
Let us recap our study. Originally, God dwelt alone; and He had
self-existent life. God has not opened to us the mystery of His
existence before His creation of Lucifer and the Word. However,
at some point, God decided to create two beings – perhaps
“twins” in the sense that one immediately followed the other.
These two beings were God’s created Sons. God gave these two
created Sons eternal life. If anything went wrong, He could
extinguish their existence and begin all over again, for their life
depended on Him. These two Sons were bright Morning Stars;
they were a part of God and close to Him.
Job 38:7 When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God
shouted for joy?
God saw something in His second created Son, the Word superior
to that of His first created Son, Lucifer. God determined to give
the Word a great project He could call His own. God would
supply the power necessary for the Word to complete this
project, which would take millions, if not billions of years to
accomplish. Just designing the universe could have taken millions
First, the Word created the different types of angels, perhaps by
the billions. Second, the Word created stars, suns, planets, moons
and other physical illuminations in the vastness of space. The
Word situated these into vast galaxies. Within these galaxies, the
Word arrayed various solar systems.
No doubt, by this time, Lucifer felt useless, seeing his younger-
created brother bringing worlds into existence while he sit by
merely listening to all the excitement of this exertion. For some
reason, we know that God assigned Lucifer to one of the planets
of one of the solar systems of one of the galaxies. We now know
this planet by the name Earth!
Conceivably God allowed Lucifer to see what he could do with
the planet earth. Perhaps Lucifer busied himself by creating
large savannahs and various types of Dinosaurs to roam these
vast grasslands. God may have noticed that Lucifer created both
herbivorous and carnivorous Dinosaurs. Why would God’s
created Son, Lucifer create violent animals that killed and ate
one another? Was this the first flaw God detected in Lucifer?
We do not yet know for sure.
Ezekiel 28:15 You [were] perfect in your ways from the day that you were
created, till iniquity was found in you.
However, as time passed, Lucifer became bored with his lot in the
universe and brooding over his situation, he became bitter with
his low position compared with that of his younger created
brother. We can be sure that God knew what Lucifer was
thinking. We saw the proof of that earlier. While Lucifer
brooded on his misfortunes and determined to make himself the
Most High God, God was devising his punishment: Isaiah 14:15:
"Yet you shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit".
Perhaps it was while Lucifer was planning his war to supplant
God that the Father revealed Lucifer’s flaws to the Word and
explained to Him that eventually it would be necessary to destroy
Lucifer. It is possible that God and His Son, the Word began, at
that time, to devise another plan that would erase the sorrow that
Lucifer had brought.
At some point after this, Lucifer swept up to heaven and initiated
his war with Michael. We do not know much about the details of
this war. Two things we do know. Lucifer lost the war and God
destroyed all that Lucifer had conceivably created on the earth.
The earth was now only a rotating mass covered in water. All
was chaos and confusion. Lucifer had inherited the title of Satan
– Adversary; and God constrained him to live with the desolation
he had produced. With this degradation came loss of beauty, loss
of wisdom – only bitterness and the desire of revenge remained.
Jude 1:13 Raging waves of the sea, foaming out their own shame;
wandering stars, to whom is reserved the blackness of darkness forever.
The scene was now set for the second half of Genesis 1:2 – And
the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. (Read our
book: (“Genesis, In the Beginning”)
God the Father had given God the Word another project that
would ultimately become His Masterpiece. The Father’s spirit
hovered over the face of the waters that covered the earth. God
the Father would ultimately have begotten Sons in His own
image. The Father and the only created Son of any worth now
devised a plan even better than the formation of Sons by
The Word came down and created Adam and Eve in the image of
God. However, this was just a beginning step in the process of
ultimately bringing many sons into glory and creating begotten
Sons of God! To make this project stick, the Word would need to
become the first begotten Son of God and the author of the rest
of humanity’s salvation. God would allow Satan access to this
newly begun Masterpiece as a weight against good – requiring
greater effort to build character and producing greater strength
of ethics than would have been possible otherwise. This would be
a special process for those called to the first resurrection.
Hebrews 5:9 And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal
salvation unto all them that obey him;
Hebrews 2:10 For it became him, for whom [are] all things, and by
whom [are] all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the
captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
One mystery we can construe from Scripture is that each position
of God’s righteous Son brought out a different name or title-
name. Originally, the bible calls Him the Word.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and
the Word was God.
In the beginning of Project Earth, the bible refers to the Word as
Elohiym. In other words, for Project Earth the bible focused on
the Word’s God Nature. Project Earth belonged to Elohiym
(God); the Father gave Him this project and with it went all the
entailed responsibility. In other words, Elohiym was the one and
only God over Project Earth. God the Father did not interfere
with His created Son’s work on Earth. Moreover, the human
beings of Project Earth needed to recognize the Word as God
Genesis 1:1 In the beginning God (Elohiym) created the heaven and the
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob knew Elohiym as El Shaddai (God the
Almighty One). This name reflects the recognition of Elohiym’s
authority and power over their life. In other words, when the
Word interacted with human beings who had submitted to Him
and knew that He was indeed God, the name El Shaddai added
the understanding that Elohiym had the power to protect them.
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob did not serve a weak, pathetic God;
their God was all-powerful.
Exodus 6:3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by
[the name of] God (Elohiym) Almighty (Shaddai), but by my name
JEHOVAH (YaHWeH) was I not known to them.
Later, El Shaddai revealed to Moses His name of YHWH when
He was about to deliver Israel out of bondage in Egypt and bring
them into the Promised Land. He was an Eternal being and that
is what He called Himself: Yahweh – the eternal one.
As the begotten Son of God in human form, we know Him as
Yahshua, the Christ. Moreover, after His resurrection we know
Him as the begotten Son of God who came full circle back to the
highly exalted Word of God:
Revelation 19:13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood:
and his name is called The Word of God.
At the beginning of Project Earth, the Word (Elohiym) said to His
Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our
likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the
fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.
God the Father agreed and turned the project over to His Son,
with full assurance of the power needed to complete the venture.
We know how the rest of the story went. After less than 2000
years, the Word was sorry that He had influenced the Father to
support Him in this human endeavor. He decided that He would
destroy the entire population with a flood.
Genesis 6:6 And it repented the LORD (YAHWEH) that he had made man
on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart.
However, one man out of the billions was worth saving – Noah.
After the flood, the Word found a man named Abraham and
devised a plan to create a nation of people who would follow in
the way of God rather than the way of Satan.
The Word revealed His name of YHWH to Moses just before
Moses went back into Egypt to deliver the Israelites from the
Egyptian bondage. YHWH promised to follow them through the
wilderness in a cloud by day and in a pillar of fire by night.
YHWH would later become Yahshua, the Christ of the New
Testament, and the Second Joshua who would lead His people out
of the wilderness of Satan's world, into the Kingdom of God. The
Israelites of old drank of that spiritual Rock – the Christ! The
Christ followed the Israelites through the wilderness, but they
knew Him as, YAHWEH.
1Corinthians 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they
drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ.
YHWH chose Moses to lead the Israelites out of bondage and
gave them His covenant – Ten Commandments. The Covenant
the Word made with Israel was lacking in the sense of an
indwelling desire on the part of the Covenantees to keep their
part of the agreement.
With the Adamic nature only, there would be no success:
Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not
subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.
The Israelites could not satisfy their part of the Covenant with
YHWH. Eventually they did so badly that YHWH divorced His
wife Israel. This is significant for after His death, the resurrected
begotten Son of God was eligible to marry again. He will marry
His bride in heaven, after the first resurrection and return to
earth to fight at Armageddon just before He takes over the earth
and sets up His Kingdom. Paul tells us of these two marriages,
informing us again that the Christ was none other than YHWH of
the Old Testament who married the Israelites under Moses.
Romans 7:3 So then if, while [her] husband lives, she be married to
another man, she shall be called an adulteress: but if her husband be dead,
she is free from that law; so that she is no adulteress, though she be
married to another man.
4 Wherefore, my brethren, you also have become dead to the law by the
body of Christ; that you should be married to another, [even] to him who
is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God.
The Word began as a created Son of God. He then proceeded to
become the Master of Project Earth, after Lucifer had failed.
The Son of God was the one and only true God of this earth.
God, the Father placed more and more trust in His created Son.
The Word became “The Eternal” or YHWH to Moses and the
Israelites. YHWH married Israel and bound them in a covenant
of His laws, which they could not keep because they only had the
one Adamic nature. Later, He divorced them, and was ready to
reveal His new project.
Jeremiah 31:31 Behold, the days come, says the LORD, that I will make a
new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah:
32 Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day
that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which
my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, says the
33 But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel;
After those days, says the LORD, I will put my law in their inward parts,
and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my
Realizing that the Adamic nature was inadequate to keep the
laws of God because of the taint Satan added to it in the Garden
of Eden, YHWH saw that it was necessary to introduce the
nature of God to indwell the Covenantee alongside the tainted
Adamic nature. This change would produce the desired results:
man would at last be able to fulfill his part in becoming a begotten
Son of God. With a correct translation of 1John 3:9, we
understand this truth:
1John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God (receives the holy spirit) does not
commit sin (as the new man); for his (God’s) seed (the holy spirit)
remains in him: and (through the holy spirit) he cannot sin (rather, he has
the ability to refrain from sin), because he is born of God (has received
the holy spirit of God, which continually dwells within him).
The Greek in 1John 3:9 for the phrase “he cannot sin” has two
words. One of the Greek words expresses an absolute negative.
The other word <1410> means “the ability to do something”. A
correct translation of this phrase is, “he has the ability to not
sin”. Therefore, as long as one uses the nature of the holy spirit,
he can live a sinless life. It is only when one resorts to the
Adamic Nature that he reverts to sin.
The Old Covenant project ended. YHWH continued to work with
the remnant of the Jews – Assyria had taken the House of Israel
captive long ago – guiding them to the time when He would come
into the world as the Son of God/son of man. YHWH would then
be the Son of God and the Son of the Jewish maiden, Mary – in
other words: He would become the begotten Son of God in the
form of a servant, made in the likeness of men.
Philippians 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the
form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
YAHSHUA THE MESSIAH
Although the created Son of God had been successful in all of His
projects, He had never given up His eternal life to accomplish any
one of them.
He had been the created Son of God. He had successfully
created the various spirit beings and the entirety of the universe.
He had successfully rectified the damage done to the earth during
the war in heaven, because of Satan’s corrupted ambitions.
Remember that earth is but a part of the heavens. Astronomers
claim there is an inexplicable path of empty space stretching from
earth into outer space toward the north. Apparently, this is the
path of the war – the direction that Michael hurled Satan back to
the earth – perhaps they fought all the way from heaven to earth.
The bible indicates that God’s throne is in the sides of the north
or the northern part of outer space:
Isaiah 14:13 For you have said in your heart, I will ascend into heaven, I
will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount
of the congregation, in the sides of the north:
Project Earth has been difficult. The Word destroyed billions in
the flood because of the way of Cain – Satan’s faithful servant.
YHWH married an Adamic minded wife and later divorced her
due to no fault of His own. He identified the aspect needed for
success and determined to begin all over again. YHWH
confirmed that the holy spirit was necessary for successfully
converting humans into Sons of God. He proved this through
many of the patriarchs of Israel: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph,
Moses, David and others:
Hebrews 11:4 By faith Abel offered unto God a more excellent sacrifice
than Cain, by which he obtained witness that he was righteous, God
testifying of his gifts: and by it he being dead yet speaks.
5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not
found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had
this testimony, that he pleased God.
6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that comes to God
must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently
7 By faith Noah, being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved
with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he
condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by
8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he
should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not
knowing where he went.
9 By faith he sojourned in the land of promise, as in a strange country,
dwelling in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with him of the
10 For he looked for a city which has foundations, whose builder and
maker is God.
11 Through faith also Sara herself received strength to conceive seed, and
was delivered of a child when she was past age, because she judged him
faithful who had promised.
12 Therefore sprang there even of one, and him as good as dead, so many
as the stars of the sky in multitude, and as the sand which is by the sea
13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having
seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and
confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from where they
came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore
God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he has prepared for them a
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had
received the promises offered up his only begotten son,
18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall your seed be called:
19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead;
from where also he received him in a figure.
20 By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come.
21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph;
and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.
22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the
children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
23 By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months by his
parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid
of the king’s commandment.
24 By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son
of Pharaoh’s daughter;
25 Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to
enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;
26 Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in
Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.
27 By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he
endured, as seeing him who is invisible.
28 Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he
that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
29 By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the
Egyptians attempting to do were drowned.
30 By faith the walls of Jericho fell down, after they were compassed about
31 By faith the harlot Rahab perished not with them that believed not,
when she had received the spies with peace.
32 And what shall I more say? For the time would fail me to tell of
Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and
Samuel, and of the prophets:
33 Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained
promises, stopped the mouths of lions,
34 Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of
weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the
armies of the aliens.
35 Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were
tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better
36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover
of bonds and imprisonment:
37 They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain
with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being
destitute, afflicted, tormented;
38 (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in
mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.
39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received
not the promise:
40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us
should not be made perfect.
