The Annapolis Conference has brought the pressure of world opinion against Israel to make deep concessions in negotiations with the Palestinians, and this will only intensify through the coming year. Pressure will be great upon Israel to give up all or part of Jerusalem and other areas of Israel. This is an important time to understand that the Land belongs to Israel by sacred covenant with YHWH Himself! This program explains those covenants and gives all of us good reason to bless and support our brethren in Israel in these troubled times.
Listener Email Question: “Today I opened an email teaching from YATI that shocked me! YATI claims that Yahshua was/is not human. Here’s an exact quote that I cut&pasted from the teaching of Rabbi Moshe Yoseph Koniuchowsky that YATI sent to me; Yahshua is not 100 percent YHWH and 100 percent man as most bible believing religions, or sects teach, but is 1 million percent YHWH and 0 percent man. He was cloaked with the features of humanity, BUT was not human in His flesh, spirit, or blood! I want to know: Does Tsiyon teach this too?”
Tsiyon Answer: No, Tsiyon does not agree that Y’shua was not really a man, for obvious Biblical reasons. If Y’shua was not a man then He was not “Son of David.” If He was not “Son of David” then He could not be Messiah, since the Scriptures make clear that Messiah would be a Son of David and David, of course, was a man (Isaiah 11:1, Matt 1:1, Luke 1:32). Neither can it be said that Y’shua was merely “Son of David” in some sort of symbolic way, for the Scripture specifically says Y’shua “was born of the seed of David according to the flesh” (Romans 1:4). Actually, Y’shua’s favorite title for Himself was “Son of Man” emphasizing His true humanity. This is vital to all of us, because we are saved through the sacrifice of Y’shua as a perfect man. If He did not come as a man then we are all still in our sins. Y’shua on earth was known as Son of David – Son of Man – and Son of God. Tsiyon did a series of programs on Y’shua as each of these titles in the Spring of 2006. Anyone with questions about the topic should listen to all of those programs to better understand the identity of Y’shua in all dimensions. This Passover season we are rebroadcasting one of those programs that is especially appropriate which shows why Y’shua had to be a man to save us. This program is called “Son of Man Our Redeemer.”
