Have you ever had someone say to you, “I believe in Yahushua, but I just can’t buy the creation story”? I remember a conversation with my father once about 34 years ago. We were discussing the Bible and he asked me if I really believed the creation story, and I said that I did, much to his amazement. I am relatively certain that, as a self-professing “Christian,” he was not alone. And in fact, I would dare to assume that it might be the prevailing sentiment among non-evangelical churchgoers today. Add to that some of the other miracles of the Hebrew Bible, such as the Flood and the Exodus, and you have a number of historical events that severely challenge a lot of nominal Christians. They do not believe that these momentous events are real history.

The same people who find it difficult to accept the miracle narratives of the Old Testament may also find it difficult to believe that Yahushua actually walked on water or changed water to wine or resurrected Lazarus. When you begin playing editor-in-chief with the Scriptures, you can quickly find yourself justifying any rejection of a portion of the Scriptures that doesn’t fit your personal worldview. In many cases one of two mental processes is occurring. Either the individual holds that all that is required is to believe that Yahushua is the Savior, and what Yahushua said or did doesn’t matter. Or, Yahushua is some kind of metaphor for a type of Eastern mystical righteousness.

It seems incongruous and contradictory that anyone would call themselves “Christian” and at the same time deny parts of that same Bible that Yahushua and the Apostles confirmed over and over again. It’s like saying to Yahuwah, “I accept your Son as Savior and Lord but I reject what he said and did. And by the way, I also reject what you have said about Yahushua.” You can’t have it both ways. When Yahushua says, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life” you reject his words at your own peril. It seems fashionable these days to accept a designer Messiah, one who fits nicely into a modern amalgamation of today’s lifestyle and belief sets. I don’t think that will go over big with the Father who says in Malachi 3:6, “For I, the Lord, do not change; therefore you, O sons of Jacob, are not consumed.” Yahuwah does not alter His plans and laws to fit conveniently into a generation’s lifestyle or norms. We as created beings must be molded into Yahuwah’s ideal, that being the man Messiah Yahushua (1 Tim. 2:5).

So what is true belief all about? It is about Yahushua being the link and the bridge between the first covenant and the second covenant. It is about Yahushua’s words confirming the law, the writings and the prophets. It is about bringing Yahuwah’s revelation to its intended full meaning — “fulfilling” it. It is about Yahushua approving and appointing Apostles through whom Yahuwah would speak and further spread His ideas of salvation and the kingdom. Those Apostles suffered and died for the Word, the Gospel about the Kingdom, and all that had been written before them. Is it conceivable that Stephen would be martyred (Acts 7) after laying out the history of Israel to the Jews if he really believed that some of those very events that he described were only fables? And where did Stephen get his information? Was it not from the scrolls read every Sabbath in the synagogues, the very same scrolls that our Lord Yahushua read from and believed? Is there ever any indication that Yahushua didn’t believe the narratives that were read to him and from which he learned? If there is I have never read about it.

Now if Yahushua believed the Scriptures and the Apostles believed the Scriptures, then how can one claim to believe in Yahushua and deny what he and his chosen agents believed? Let’s take a look at some of the confirming Scriptures that unequivocally show that Yahushua believed all of the Old Testament from Genesis to Malachi (or the same books in the order in which he knew them, from Genesis to 2 Chronicles).

This is a non-WLC article written by Terry Anderson.

We have taken out from the original article all pagan names and titles of the Father and Son, and have replaced them with the original given names. Furthermore, we have restored in the Scriptures quoted the names of the Father and Son, as they were originally written by the inspired authors of the Bible. -WLC Team
