The angels worship the Living God, Yahweh!

Yeshua the Messiah
Knowing Him and His Power
is the original Hebrew proper name for Jesus of Nazareth. In Hebrew Yeshua means both "Salvation," and the concatenated form of Yahoshua, the "LORD who is Salvation." The name Jesus has
no intrinsic meaning in English, except as it is known as His name in English. (Therefore, we cannot deny the name Jesus, since this name commonly identifies the Messiah to English speaking people.)
Many people of the world believe Yeshua to be the promised Lamb of God, who was chosen to be sacrificed for all mankind's sin. The Bible declares that mankind must have a blood sacrifice to substitute punishment for their sins by placing them on
the sacrifice, figuratively speaking. The sacrifice has to be blameless; else the punishment could not be substituted, since the thing sacrificed would be dying for its own sins. Clean and spotless animals were once sacrificed as a temporal measure until a
fully qualified sacrifice could be supplied at the proper time. Followers of Yeshua believe He was that perfect sacrifice. He is a man, who could be properly substituted for mankind, yet God in the flesh, for only God is sinless. Only God Himself is a
pure enough sacrifice to satisfy His holy justice, for all men have sinned.
Yeshua came speaking the Torah Word of God with absolute authority. He made no mistake in regards to all God's commands. Only
God Himself could act this way. For this reason people accept Yeshua as God in the flesh. Not that God is consigned or limited to flesh, but that He can manifest Himself in whatever form He pleases to fulfill His task. Yeshua of Nazareth was and is the
form of flesh that God was manifest in. In this form, Yeshua is the Son of God and the Son of Man.
Because Yeshua presented Himself with this absolute authority it is only logical to conclude He
Isa 9:6-8 For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment
and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. 8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath
lighted upon Israel.
Yeshua is that light,
the Word unto Jacob/Israel! For it is Yeshua Who is Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace!
