Statement of Faith

I have considered all that I have heard, seen and read concerning Jesus of Nazareth.

Having pondered these things, I believe that the Biblical accounts as recorded in the

Textus Receptus and the Mazoretic text concerning Him, are authentic and historically  

accurate without error. Thus, my mind is held captive to the TRUTH that indeed Jeshua

Hamashia was and is in fact, God incarnate. His title, "The Son of God" is befitting His

Majesty. He personally, in a body of flesh and blood, visited planet earth on or about the

15th of the Hebrew lunar month of Tishri in the year 4 BC at night, which is the Julian

date of October 5th. He came incognito through the womb of a virgin named Mary while

she was occupying temporary shelter in the town of Bethlehem Ephratah, Israel. It was

the 1st day of the Feast of Tabernacles and in deed He "tabernacled among us" (John

1:14) beginning that very night and continued on until a day that will go down in infamy,

Friday Nisan 14, 30 AD (Julian date of April 7th during the day time) the very day the

lambs must be killed for the Passover. On that day, hanging on a cross in a strange

darkness that had made the Sun to go down at noon (Amos 8:9-10), He cried "It is

Finished", and bowed His head and the Savior of the world, died. It was 3 pm. By  

Jewish law His body was not allowed to hang at night (Deuteronomy21:22-23, Gal 3:13) so

they hurriedly prepared his body for burial and placed Him in a rock hewn tomb just as

the sun was about to set. Thus, he was laid to "rest" just before the evening darkness

signaled the Jewish Sabbath day of "rest" had arrived. Indeed, he perfectly, without

moving so much as an eye lid, fulfilled the Sabbath rest for it too was a prophecy that

had waited thousands of years for this very day of fulfillment in the Messiah. While He

rested in death his followers with great heartache mourned. But as the scriptures say,

"weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning" (Ps 30:5). As it began

to dawn on the 1st day of the week (the morrow after the Sabbath or Sunday), God

Incarnate rose from the grave fully ALIVE ! It was the very day of the Jewish Feast of

First Fruits which again, was a prophecy of the Messiah's Resurrection from the dead.

This Jesus emphatically said, "I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in

me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me

shall never die".  I believe this. Jesus is our Savior but He is also LORD, to be  

worshiped and obeyed by His true servants that love Him. As Mary said to the servants,

"Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it".(John 2:5)
