Q27: 34. . . The Invitation

Show the Desire of Ages is inspired..

(1) Jesus removes our sin-offering

The heaviest burden thatwe bear is the burden of sin. If we were left to bear this burden, it

Page 329

would crush us. But the Sinless One has taken our place. "The Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of usall." Isa. 53:6. He has borne the burden of our guilt. He will take the load from our weary shoulders. Hewill give us rest.

Why does the SOP use sin rather than sin-offering?

The difference between these two Hebrew words is subtle, but impportant. Fuzzy translations are confused, so the SOP does not discourage child like readers of the Holy Writings. Notice the context of the sentences, is not about sin but about confessed sin, known as sin-offering.

Ps 32:5 I acknowledged my sin unto thee, and mine iniquity have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the LORD; and thou forgavest the iniquity of my sin. Selah.(KJV)

See the problem here ? The Hebrew word for sin is "chata". The Hebrew word for confessed sin or sin-offering is "chatah". Here is the correct meaning:-

Ps 32:5 I know my sin-offering unto thee, and mine guilt have I not hid. I said, I will confess my transgressions unto the YHWH-Jesus; and thou lift-away the guilt of my sin-offering. Selah.(Ancient Hebrew)

And in the New Testament:-

1Jo 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

  • 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.(KJV)

    See the problem here ? The Hebrew word for sin here is "chattaah" NOT "chata". (Different spellings can be confusing) But translators of the Greek, which links both Hebrew words with two different Greek words, makes both Greek words the same English word. Here is the correct meaning:-

    1Jo 1:9 If we confess our sin-offerings, Jesus is faithful and just to forgive us our sin-offerings, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

  • 10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Jesus a liar, and his word is not in us.(Ancient Hebrew)

    The Greek ("hamartia"="chattaah" and "hamartano"="chata") translation of the Hebrew is faithful, but our English translation is NOT.

    The Spirit of Prophecy says

    The heaviest burden thatwe bear is the burden of sin. If we were left to bear this burden, itwould crush us.

    Why does "sin" crush a wicked person? It doesn't. A wicked person doesn't even know or care about their sinning. But a "sinner" by definition, is a wicked person trying to confess his sinning unto a sin-bearer who lifts away his guilt, thus the "believer" is feeling the "sin-offering" crushing him/her because the penalty for missing out on God's power is eternal non-existance.Clearly the SOP is talking about confessed sins, which the Hebrew term is "sin-offering".

    Ro 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners (chata) "sinning", Christ died for us.(KJV)

    Sometimes the KJV is correct. Notice Jesus died while the whole world was sinning. So amazing was Jesus love for us !

    Ro 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: (KJV)

    See ho w KJV translations make things confusing? Sounds like Adam is referenced here as bringing in death by sin ? But notice the fuller context :-

    Ro 5:11 And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement. 12 Wherefore, as by one man sin-offering entered into the world, and death by sin-offering; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned: 13 (For until the "teachings of salvation" sin-offering was in the world: but sin-offering is not accounted for where there is no "Teachings for salvation". (Ancient Hebrew)

    Changed meanings hey? What Paul is saying is when Adam sinned, Jesus came and introduced his teachings for salvation, and so the guilty pair confessed their sin onto the sin-offering, which Jesus made atonement for, by promising to die for their missing.And it is the "sin-offering solution for sinning" that entered the world, for death, because all humans do sinning...but not all...Jesus entered the world as a human and did no sin-offering...because He did no sin....hence He was able to atone for our sin-offering by becoming the Lamb of GOD for the sin-offerings of the world...

    Ge 3:21 Unto Adam also and to his wife did the LORD God make coats of skins, and clothed them.

    When GOD clothed the naked sinners, GOD also introduced the death of an animal as a substitute for the life of the sinner, until GOD as a personal Being would come to restore relationship through the death of Himself.

    For more on why Jesus died, see the SOP and comments by the Author on a very special verse in the Holy Writings about life for life (Ex 21:23 ) Shalom.

    (2) Jesus empowers only the weak

    The weaker and morehelpless you know yourself to be, the stronger will you become in His strength.

    Read this through over and over. You cannot have relationship with someone, unless you allow your powers of relationship to weaken and the other parties power of relationship to increase...

    For more see A Master's Religion

    Na 1:2 God is jealous, and the LORD revengeth; the LORD revengeth, and is furious;...(KJV)

    Na 1:2 The Strong Authority is jealous, and the YHWH revengeth; the YHWH revengeth, and is a furious Master(baal);...(Ancient Hebrew)

    This is the only verse in the OT that says Jesus-YHWH is a furious master over our soul...

    So their are three rulers of master over our soul, we are masters of our soul "Self" where there is no relationship, Jesus is master over our soul, where their is a divine relationship, or Satan is master over our soul, where the relationship with the wicked one spells eternal non-existence.

    You might say this is unfair...did not Satan want to be like the heavenly Father with his own kingdom without rules?

    Isa 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

    But without natural laws, there is nothing...without the Father nothing exists...not even chaos and missing and sinning itself... Satan was asking the impossible...yet the Father attempted to give him a universe of chaos with some decaying natural laws (such as entrophy) just to satisfy Satan's need for such a universe... But without the Father there is nothing...not even time exists...not even space itself...there is no other natural existence...

    This is why judgement exists, because the Father is being judged by Satan...so the time allocated for judgement is limited...and after this time, the universes will come to know that the Father is always faithful to His love and laws of love. That makes our heavenly Father trustworthy, dependable and exacting in every detail, always full of love for the service of others.

    The wea ker and morehelpless you know yourself to be, the stronger will you become in His strength.

    So why do we have to be weak? What is it that must become weak? Our abuse of the Father's power that we humans use selfishly, as if we do things on our own.

    In other words we are selfishly abusing the Father's power He gives us, and we trample upon our living as if it were our own, to do as we please. The Holy Writings describe people like this as "Stiff necked".

    Jer 17:23 But they obeyed not, neither inclined their ear, but made their neck stiff, that they might not hear, nor receive instruction.(KJV)

    The Hebrew always like concrete objects...so a hard neck is a person who does not listen, does not obey...and abuses the life force the Father gives... There is no relationship possible with such a person, they "do" on their own.

    This is why it says we have to be weak in human power, than we become strong in divine power, and more of relationship flows from GOD through you to others. In other words you (singular) become an "earthly elohiym"...

    Many theories of faith see the "heavenly elohiym" as a human defined term called "trinity", but this is not a Hebrew meaning. The term "heavenly elohiym" refers to relationship and is not difficult to understand. How many persons are in relationship? At least two. But no one person can lay claim to relationship, because relationship exists only as the two become one. This is what the Bible concept of the two Hebrew words for love is all about...these words come together as one. This is why the "heavenly elohiym" is a singular flow of love. Shalom my friend.

    For more, see the two words for love.

    (3) Jesus yokes us for labour..

    "Take My yoke upon you," Jesus says. The yoke is an instrument of service. Cattle are yoked for labor,and the yoke is essential that they may labor effectually. By this illustration Christ teaches us that weare called to service as long as life shall last. We are to take upon us His yoke, that we may be coworkerswith Him.

    The term "co-worker" is yet again an English term the SOP uses to illustrate "relationship".

    The Hebrew illustrates relationship with "two calves yoked together" for service by the Master and the Father as the picture shows.

    Isa 28:24 Doth the plough (charash) plough (charash) all day to sow?

    Many people see words with the same spellings, (verb and noun forms) as different meanings, but in Hebrew the meanings are the same, but different in action... Such understanding would change our Bible translations if we tried to read things as the Hebrew says we should....Hebrews loved fun with words...as shown here...

    Does the Plough plough all day to sow?

    What can Love do to love you over?

    GOD goes to produce more Produce...

    The term "co-worker" is similar to the "Hebrew verb/noun" forms of action. The idea is to yoke a person to another person, so the action of the younger inexperienced person is made more complete by the older more experienced person. And every Hebrew word expressed as "noun/verb" forms carries the same meaning, to bring incomplete actions to completed actions.

    When we are "co-workers" with Jesus, the relationship becomes one of equality over time, the sinner is less experienced and learns from Jesus how to cope with temptations and service with wicked people steeped in sinning. The relationship becomes mature and experienced, as long as the weaker human knows he is weak, and the yoking with Jesus, make his human training strong.

    (4) Jesus' yoke is easy on us..

    He says, "My yoke is easy, and My burden is light." He bids themseek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and His promise is that all things needful to themfor this life shall be added. Worry is blind, and cannot discern the future; but Jesus sees the end fromthe beginning. In every difficulty He has His way prepared to bring relief. Our heavenly Father has athousand ways to provide for us, of which we know nothing.

    Jesus promises to make our training easy, and our burdens light.

    (5) Jesus is the teachings personified

    " Learn of Me," says Jesus; "for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest." We are to enterthe school of Christ, to learn from Him meekness and lowliness. Redemption is that process by whichthe soul is trained for heaven.

    Why do many people see the "law" as some powerful commandments of GOD? when in fact the "law" is the teachings, we belong to the school of Jesus, and we are trained by a Teacher.

    Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Teachings, and the Teachings was with God, and the Teachings was God.

  • Joh 1:14 And the Teachings was made flesh, and dwelt among us,...
  • Joh 1:17 For the Teaching (torah) was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

    Why does John write the teachings of Moses came, but grace teachings come by Jesus? Are these teachings the same ? Given to mankind by Jesus in both OT and NT times?

    This will not make sense unless we come to understand that Jesus spoke to Moses His Father's teachings, as well as His own teachings... and yet both teachings are in harmony with each other, yet different. What makes the two teachings different is the missing or sinning factor that spoils relationship with the Father.

    Joh 15:8 Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.

  • 9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
  • 10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.

    Here the two teachings are detailed clearly, the Father's commandments and Jesus commandments. They are in harmony with each other, but Jesus commandments or teachings are given to sinning humans, while the Father's commandments are for sinless humans. Can you see the difference here ? Jesus teachings given to Moses were designed to help sinning humans appreciate Jesus who would come in human form and live as a human without sinning, to claim the Father's teachings for humans who can live in such laws with the Father forever. And so Jesus is the bridge that connects the sinner to the sinless, Jesus is the way for us to live sinlessly before the Father, and so daily we are yoked with Jesus, to walk as He walks, and be trained as He was trained every day, until we have a relationship with Jesus without sinning . In the beginning is relationship (you and Jesus), Jesus can forgive all your past sinning and daily sinning, but it is the daily surrender to Jesus that we are yoked to, so that eventually the relationship is trained until the inexperienced sinning human becomes with Jesus, a sinless human with Jesus, and the relationship is fully completed in Jesus' love.

    This is why Jesus offers us grace and mercy, because His saving us saves us daily as we walk with Jesus yoked with Him in relationship.

    (6) Many are afraid of relationship..

    ..... But many who profess to be His followers have ananxious, troubled heart, because they are afraid to trust themselves with God. They do not make acomplete surrender to Him; for they shrink from the consequences that such a surrender may involve.Unless they do make this surrender, they cannot find peace.

    Many are afraid to enter into relationship with Jesus. Many are fearful to allow God to subdue us daily...thus we must surrender daily...and allow Jesus' power to master over our soul...not our own human powers...but Jesus is the stronger source of our relationship...not ourselves...

    Some make "surrender" into a salvational step to Jesus...but it is not a step of salvation, but a process of salvation for every step...a relationship does not even beginn unless we allow GOD to subdue and control us,biologically , epi-gentically, physically, emotionally and spiritually. Our old nature and the old master of our nature, and its human powers must die, and instead Jesus powers co-operating with us begins, and we work together with Him using Divine powers, not human powers.

    For more see the SOP on Surrender.

    Book of Jesus 14:1 O Israel, return unto the LORD thy God; for thou hast fallen by thine guilt.

    Here is our need...we are guilty...to begin a relationship we must remove our guilt, that spoils relationship... (a wicked person senses no need for relationship, and thus feels no guilt)

    Book of Jesus 14:2

  • Take with you words,
  • and turn to the LORD:

    Written as a poetry parallel, taking words into our soul, is a returning (repenting) concept to Jesus... we do not read words to boast...we read words that weather us to soil, ready to receive the WORD of Jesus...the spark of His life beginning in us...as a Seed planted by faith...

    Reading such words, is the beginning of "surrender" - the process of how GOD comes to you...

    Book of Jesus 14:2

  • Say (pray) unto him,
  • Lift away guilt, receive us graciously...

    Written as a poetry parallel, praying words into our soul, is watering the relationship we have with Jesus... we do not pray words presumptously...we pray words to Jesus so He can grow in us, ready to receive the Sonlight POWERS of the Father...the reproduction of His life completed in us...as a Fruit grown by grace ...

    Praying such words, is the daily continual power of "surrender" - the process of how GOD grows in you...

    Book of Jesus 14:2

  • "so will we render the calves (fruit) of our lips.

    Finally the Father's fruit is conplete in us, and GOD loves to share us with others, for this completes the circuit of loving, and thus we are completed by GOD's Love.

    Love is the circle of life. Love is a cycle of loving and being loved. Love is a circuit of relationship. Only when relationship is fully restored, do we understand the concept of loving others as we love GOD.

    This is why there are two Hebrew words for love...the first is GOD's love to us... and the second is our "fellowship relationship response" to that love, that completes the circuit of love.Such loving components were orginally packaged into distinct personalities of loving, as gender male and gender female, to show maleness love and femaleness love, as components of love completed as a circuit, but only if they work together as one source.

    See the two Hebrew words for love .

    (7) Desire of Ages has even "word puns"

    Those who take Christ at His word, and surrender their souls to His keeping, their lives to His ordering,will find peace and quietude. Nothing of the world can make them sad when Jesus makes them glad byHis presence.

    Want proof the Desire of Ages is inspired ? And follows Hebrew?

    Answer: "word puns"....

    Hebrew loves word puns...and one can predict the SOP has plenty of "word puns" since the Holy Writings are mostly poetry...we will find sound rthyme words...as the SOP shows here...

    Do not be sad, for Jesus makes you glad, when you have a relationship with Him, for Elohiym is highly relational. Shalom
