Part 5
YHWH was already obligated to these many who were waiting for
His promises.  YHWH could not fail these many faithful followers.  
Even if only one person had already qualified for the promises that
YHWH had made, it would be essential that He keep His promises
and bring them into the God Kingdom.  However, with the New
Covenant it seemed sure that many others would follow those who
had already obtained a good report through faith.  In fact, with this
new design of making the holy spirit part of the very covenant and
changing the method of justification (Read our book on
The Two
Natures), those already sealed would have to wait for us before
their perfection and reception of the promises!

However, sealing the promises to those in the past and those in the
future would entail something entirely new.  In order to complete
Project Earth, YHWH must become the first begotten Son of God
and to do this, He would need to give up His eternal life.  YHWH
had done everything so perfectly that God was ready to make Him
a begotten Son of God.  This was no doubt a difficult decision to
make, as far as YHWH was concerned – from certain
perspectives.  YHWH had actually been God for thousands and
conceivably millions or billions of years.  To walk away from being
God to become a human being and risk everything must have been
terribly difficult.  However, He did just that and God’s trust in Him
grew even more.  This brings to mind the following:

Matthew 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever
will lose his life for my sake shall find it.

In other words, the Christ spoke from experience when He made
this statement.  However, we should understand something.  The
Christ was more than man was, from the beginning of His human
life – from one perspective.  It is true that He was man from His
mother’s side.  However, He was God from His Father’s side.

In other words, the Christ had the holy spirit without measure,
from the beginning of His human undertaking.  However, He had
something more: He had His unique spirit from the time God had
originally created Him.  In other words, when YHWH gave up His
eternal life, His unique spirit went back to God who gave it.  When
God impregnated Mary with His seed of the Christ by means of the
holy spirit, it came with the unique spirit of YHWH.

Ecclesiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the
spirit shall return unto God who gave it.

Nine months later, a new being came into the world – A life that
was fully God so far as His mind was concerned and fully man so
far as His body was concerned.  We know this is true, for He
confounded the doctors and lawyers at the age of 12.  This shows
the accumulated knowledge of His unique spirit from the beginning
of His creation, as well as the indwelling of the holy spirit.  
However, He died and remained in the grave, as an unthinking
being for three full nights and three full days.  

Luke 2:42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem
after the custom of the feast.

Luke 2:46 And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the
temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking
them questions.
47 And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and
answers.

We should understand that although the Christ had the Adamic
nature in Him from His mother’s side, He never used that nature
for active response.  However, the Adamic Nature was the means
of Christ’s temptations.  It is evident that Satan could not have
used the holy spirit to tempt Christ.  Therefore, we must conclude
that Satan tempted Christ by using the Adamic Nature Christ
received from His human mother.  On the other hand, had Christ
used the Adamic nature to respond to the temptations, He would
have sinned and failed to become a perfect Sin Offering.  It is good
to reflect that as Christ had two natures, so He has given us to
have two natures.  Christ lived by the holy spirit; He is our
example.

Romans 8:7 Because the carnal (physical, fleshly) mind [is] enmity against
God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with
the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are,
yet] without sin.

The Christ continued for thirty years as a Son of God/son of man
being.  He began His ministry of the Gospel of the Kingdom of God
and continued in that endeavor for 3 or 3 1/2 years.  At the end of
this ministry, it had come time for Him to become the Sacrifice for
Sin.  Satan tried his best to kill Yahshua before His hanging
through the beatings and scourgings, but the Father protected Him
enough so that they could not break one bone and when the Roman
soldier pierced His side, blood and water poured out – only then did
He die.  In other words, the ancient prophecies of the Messiah did
not fail.

At this time, the Father must have had His greatest trust in His
then only begotten Son.  Yahshua had given up His eternal life as
YHWH; now He had given up His physical life as Yahshua the
man.  Of course, His unique spirit went back to God once again.  
His future life was in the hands of the Father.  In order to come
back to life, the Father had to raise Him from the dead:

Colossians 2:12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also you are risen
with [him] through the faith of the operation of God, who has raised him
from the dead.

Ephesians 1:20 Which he (God – the Father) wrought in Christ, when he
raised him from the dead, and set [him] at his own right hand in the
heavenly [places],

Certainly, the Father did raise the Christ from the dead, as He had
promised – for He cannot lie – and greatly exalted Him, giving Him
self-existent life rather than the eternal life He had as YHWH.  He
and the creation now await the manifestation of many brothers.

NKJ:
Romans 8:19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for
the revealing of the Sons of God.

Hebrews 2:11 For both he who sanctifies and they who are sanctified [are]
all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

Yahshua no longer has the human nature of His mother.  He no
longer has the human body of His mother.  Therefore, He is no
longer man!  Rather, He is now fully God in mind and body.  We
continue to use the term Yahshua because He is our Salvation and
that is what this name means.  He is still everything He was as the
Word of God.  He is still everything He was as YHWH.  However,
He is now much more than He was before His human birth.  He is
now the begotten Son of God rather than the created Son of God.  
He now has self-existent life – life welling up within Him so that He
can now give us life:

John 6:54 Whoso eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I
will raise him up at the last day.   

He could give life before, as the Father gave Him that power.  Now
that power resides in Him to give to others.  The Father has highly
exalted Him.  

Yahshua is now the first added member of the begotten God-Kind
– He is the first begotten human making it into the Kingdom of
God or the God-Kingdom.  This He offers to all of humanity.  In
other words, Yahshua wants everyone who will to become a part of
the God-Kind.  

We should not miss the fact that to become a begotten Son of God,
one must start as a human being.  Even the Messiah could not
become a begotten Son of God without experiencing the human
process.  Moreover, the Christ suffered through His physical
ordeal and God the Father secured Him as a begotten Son of God
at His resurrection.  All who will be a part of the first resurrection
must go through the same process in order to become Sons of God.

Hebrews 5:8 Though He were a Son, yet learned He obedience by the
things, which He suffered;

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.

Project Earth will be complete in about 2000 years, from the first
resurrection.  The first six thousand years are about up.  The
seventh 1000 years will begin with the resurrection of the
firstfruits, who will be kings and priests as Sons of God for 1000
years; and they will be the “Bride of Christ”:

Revelation 5:10 And has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we
shall reign on the earth.

Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment
was given to them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the
witness of Jesus (Yahshua), and for the word of God, and which had not
worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark
upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with
Christ a thousand years.

2Corinthians 11:2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have
espoused you to one husband, that I may present [you as] a chaste virgin to
Christ.

Once the seventh 1000 years is finished, then comes the eighth
1000 years – the Last Great Day.  During this time, Israelites who
have died, but did not rise in the first resurrection, will come up for
judgment – this is the great white throne judgment.  During this
eighth day, God will raise other nations – even Sodom and
Gomorrah to teach them the Gospel of the Kingdom of God: The
Good News that they too may become members of the God Kind.  

John 7:37  In the last day, that great [day] of the feast, Jesus (Yahshua)
stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come to me, and drink.

Matthew 10:15 Verily I say to you, It shall be more tolerable for the land of
Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment, than for that city.

Matthew 11:23 And you, Capernaum, which are exalted to heaven, shall be
brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which have been done in you,
had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.

After the eighth 1000 years, about 2000 years from now, Yahshua
will turn the Kingdom over to the Father.

1Corinthians 15:24 Then [comes] the end, when he shall have delivered up
the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule
and all authority and power.

1Corinthians 15:27 For He (the Father) has put all things under His
(Yahshua's) feet.  But when He says all things are put under [Him, it is]
manifest that He (the Father) is excepted, who did put all things under Him.

1Corinthians 15:28 And when all things shall be subdued unto Him, then
shall the Son also himself be subject unto Him (the Father) who put all
things under Him, that God may be all in all.

Who was “Jesus”?  He began as the created Son of God; He
created the Angel Kingdom and the entire physical universe; He
created Adam and Eve and headed Project Earth; He brought the
flood on the earth to destroy the people who followed the wicked
way of Cain; He called Abraham and created a nation of people,
revealing His name of YHWH to Moses; He spoke His Covenant –
the Constitution of the Kingdom of God – to the Children of Israel;
He married physical Israel; He divorced Ancient Israel; He gave
up His eternal life as YHWH to become the begotten Son of God in
a human frame; He gave up His physical life and God raised Him
from the dead to self-existent life.

Who is “Jesus” (Yahshua)?  He is now the begotten and
resurrected Son of God – the first begotten Son added to the God
Kind.  Yahshua and the Father are the only two members of the
God Kind currently existing.  However, that is all about to change.

Although Yahshua is the Captain of our Salvation, neither God the
Father nor God the Son have offered us self-existent life.  They
have offered us eternal life, just as YHWH had before He gave up
that life and came to the earth as flesh.

Yahshua now waits in heaven at the Father’s right hand to begin
His Kingdom here on the earth where He will become the Lord of
lords and King of kings.

Revelation 17:14  These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall
overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are
with him [are] called, and chosen, and faithful.

After about 2000 years, what then?  

1Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye has not seen, nor ear heard,
neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has
prepared for them that love him.

Project Earth will be more glorious in its last 2000 years then it has
been in its first 6000 years.  The Christ will continue to be perfect.  
He was perfect as a created Son of God; He was perfect as the
begotten Son of God/son of man; and He is perfect as the
resurrected begotten Son of God.

Hebrews 13:8 Jesus (Yahshua) (the) Christ the same yesterday, and today,
and forever.

Yahshua the Christ is the same unique being yesterday, today and
forever.  The more He humbled Himself, the more the Father
exalted Him.  He is our perfect example.

Philippians 2:5 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus
(Yahshua):
6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with
God (equal with God in form – He had a spirit body):

RSV:
Philippians 2:6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count
equality with God (in form, as implied in the next verse) a thing to be
grasped,

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:
8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became
obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
9 Wherefore God also has highly exalted him, and given him a name which
is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus (Yahshua) every knee should bow, of things in
heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus (Yahshua) (the) Christ is
Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Who is “Jesus”?  He is Yahshua, the resurrected, begotten Son of
God: the first human – now fully God – to make it into the
Kingdom of God.  In other words, Yahshua, the Messiah is the first
being that God the Father has added to His Kind: the God-Kind.  
Very soon, God will add many to His Family and the Sabbath – the
seventh millennium will begin.  Do we dare tell the inhabitants of
the earth the true account of who “Jesus” really is?
