Understanding the Resurrection of Yeshua             by Azrael Ondi-Ahman

page 1   page 2   

 

 

Something must be said with regard to the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua of Nazareth. For we are left by our religious teachings to face two important questions:

 

1.  Was the death of Yeshua the will of God?

2.  Is belief in the atonement of Christ necessary and essential to our exaltation?

 

In answer to these questions, the Song of God states the following:

 

For such exaltation as God would give comes not by reason of my death upon the cross, but it is my word which gives eternal life, for the words which I speak are spirit, and they are life.

What shall it profit a man if he believe in my death and burial, or if he take delight in my resurrection but does not the things that I say? For I have left unto all who will, an example that they should follow in my steps, that they might become even as the Only Begotten of the Father.

Wisdom 14:53-54

 

The Song of God warns us against the church dogmas that men have built up around the death, burial, and resurrection by saying:

 

Whosoever has ears to hear, let them hear; for I tell you truly that the love of God manifest itself not in the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ as these men would have you suppose, but rather in those things which Yeshua desired to teach unto the children of men.

Wisdom 12:26

 

The resurrected Yeshua confirms this by saying:

 

But to those who shall keep my words to obey them, and who shall follow diligently after me, unto them shall be given exaltation and eternal life in the kingdom of God.

Wisdom 14:56

 

This is what the scriptures have to say about the Blood Atonement which is celebrated every Easter. Yet Christians and Mormons alike will tell us that unless we accept and believe this doctrine of wrath and blood, we cannot be accepted of God as being worthy of exaltation. But even in this, the Song of God speaks clearly, for these are the words God spoke:

 

For what doctrine alone shall make a man righteous? Behold, I say unto you, there is given not one; for only God can make the righteous so;

Which God is made manifest in that the righteous should love the children of men even as their own soul.

Wisdom 24:42-43

 

Let us also look at the words of the resurrected Yeshua, and see how and why such a doctrine as Blood Atonement was foisted upon the hearts and minds of a thousand generations. For Yeshua spoke these words, saying:

 

…hear and understand this mystery that you may learn wisdom; for to shed blood does not atonement make.

Yet consider how that there are worlds without number in the immensity of space, but only upon this world did the children of men become so great in iniquity for religion’s sake that they would crucify the Father of their spirit when he should come to walk among them.

But on other worlds this is not so. For the power of the Oneness is found in the wisdom and knowledge of God, and in holiness would the Anointed One lift all who are willing beside the God of glory.

Therefore, because there was such great wickedness in this world for religion’s sake, it was believed by many that redemption should come by reason of the blood of Christ…

Wisdom 14:58-61

 

It is important to understand that sincerity is a poor substitute for the truth. Oftentimes, it is the sincerity of church leaders that causes people to be duped into following men instead of seeking after God. In many churches sincerity has taken the place of truth altogether.

 

Beware of false shepherds therefore, who shall come to you in fine clothing and smooth speech, for inwardly they are ravenous wolves seeking to devour.

Take heed and guard yourselves round about, for there are many who for a pretense speak soft words, beguiling many, yet are they filled with gluttony; who for religion’s sake would fill their hands with the fruit of all your labors.

You shall know them by their fruits. Can men gather grapes from thistles, or figs from thorns? Even so, every good tree brings forth good fruit, but a corrupt tree brings forth only evil.

Fear them not because of their much speaking. For there is nothing covered that shall not be revealed; there is nothing hidden that shall not be made known.

Wisdom 9:46-49

 

This is God’s counsel to those who might find themselves confused by the sincerity of church leaders who only have empty words to speak. But to the church leaders themselves, to all those who stand proudly before the whole world and boast that they are blessed and chosen above all others because they are the members of the only true church, the scriptures say this:

 

Woe unto you hypocrites, for you make clean the outside for appearance sake only, that you might appear beautiful and praiseworthy before others, but inwardly you are filled with all manner of uncleanliness, being made blind towards your own transgressions.

Attend, therefore, to the affairs of your heart and make yourselves clean every whit, for every tree which brings forth evil fruit, even that tree shall God uproot and cast away.

Consider how blind you are made to become, for you say to yourselves that if you had lived in the days of Yeshua you would surely have been his disciples.

You generation of vipers! Did you not know that all they who consented unto the death of this righteous one, were even everyone churchgoers like unto yourselves, believing that they were elected above all the rest?

Why pretend you, therefore, among yourselves saying that if you had lived in Yeshua’s day, you would surely have been his disciples? For I tell you truly that he received not his authority from church leaders as you do, but rather he was appointed by God unto the people.

Woe unto you churchgoers, hypocrites! Repent you and weep aloud, for you are become as the scribes and Pharisees of old. For either you love the tree and hate its fruit, or else you love the fruit but hate the tree that bore it.

Wisdom 10:56-61


Woe unto you hypocrites, churchgoers with hands made red with blood. What are your churches now if not the tombs and sepulchers of that God whom your fathers murdered?

Guard yourselves, therefore, against the righteousness of churchgoers; for by word and deed would they hope to make you subject unto certain men of authority, that they might hedge up the way against you, that you might be encompassed round about with the doctrines and creeds of men.

Watch, therefore, and beware: For in the beginning did the teachers and preachers of the church seize the keys of deep knowledge and with great cunning did they hide them beneath the robes of their authority, securing them against you for the sake of their traditions.

I tell you truly, they shall not enter into the kingdom of God, neither would they permit that you should enter either.

Wisdom 12:54-57


Whosoever has ears to hear, let them hear and understand. For I tell you truly that these churchgoers who stand before you wrapped round about in such authority as they would give themselves, even they would kill again this Yeshua of Nazareth if he should come again to walk among you.

Wisdom 12:53

 

It was the church leaders of Yeshua’s day which killed the Father of their spirits. And it was the church leaders again who concocted from out of their own hate and self-loathing, the doctrine of Blood Atonement, causing that every man, woman, and child should stand as one condemned for the death of Yeshua, which very Christ they would crucify again and again in order to fill us with shame and guilt and self-loathing. Such is the emptiness of that harsh doctrine which has gone a long way to discourage those who would find for themselves some refuge in the very heart and soul of God.  

 

It is this doctrine of Blood Atonement which God rejects so completely, not only because it is insulting to our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, but because it is so harmful to their children.

 

But with the regard to the resurrection, that was God’s doing. It was God’s way of rejecting the evil designs of religious leaders. The resurrection of Yeshua was God’s rebuttal to the rule of order imposed by the church leaders of Yeshua’s day. The resurrection of Yeshua is God’s guarantee that good will always succeed over evil, that light will always banish away darkness, that life is greater than death, and that love shall always conquer men of hate.

 

Walk therefore, with much assurance, in the way of holiness and fear not the prattlings of churchgoers. Press forward, nothing doubting, that you might approach boldly the throne of God, having been made pure by a deep and abiding love.

Think not, therefore, that by such and such a doctrine you are justified before God. For the way of holiness manifest itself only according to such tenderness as you would grant unto the children of men.

Wisdom 12:43-44

 

Let us further examine the Song of God regarding the resurrection of Yeshua, for there were several events which will shed some light on the true significance of the resurrection.
