Did Yahshua Forgive Sins?

During my past seven years as a minister of the truth, I have come across many arguments that supposedly support Yahshua's divinity. These people have a long list of twisted verses to support this claim that few of them, if any, have taken the time to look into and study for themselves, but are, rather, a "regurgitation" of things they learned while in the whore church system that is Christianity as a whole. One argument that is proliferant among the group of the more "trained" is the following: . "Only Yahweh can forgive sins, Yahshua forgave sins, so Yahshua must be Yahweh." This is an A+B=C method of rhetoric. Since good reasoning and rhetoric involves arguments, we will break down this type of rhetorical argument.

A Lesson in Rhetoric

1. An argument is a series of statements consisting of premises (A and B) and a conclusion (C).

2. A statement is a sentence which has a truth value, that is, in a two-valued logic, is true or false (Hence, questions, exhortations, or commands are not statements)

3. A statement is a premise in an argument (A and B) if its truth is assumed, at least hypothetically, and not established by "A and B".

4. A conclusion in an argument is a claim whose truth is supposed to be established by "A and B".

5. The premises are supposed to provide support for the conclusion (C) so that if one grants their truth, then one should grant that the conclusion is true or, depending on the nature of the argument, likely to be true. This type of rhetoric is common and taught in places of "higher education" as a way to find out if an argument is true or not.

For example, here is false rhetoric:

All emeralds are stones (premise A)

All emeralds are green (premise B)

All stones are green (conclusion C)

Not all stones are green, now are they? We can see that the first two premises are true, but the conclusion is false.

The following is a true argument:

All men are mortal (premise/true A)

Yahshua was a man. (premise/true B)

Therefore, Yahshua was mortal. (conclusion/true C)

Believe it or not, certain types of false rhetoric are used in some Messianic and Christian groups to say that Yahshua was Yahweh in the flesh. We must be taught this tactic so that we can discern whether the argument is true or false. Here is another example of a false one that I encountered recently:

A=Yahweh

B=the Word of Yahweh

C=Yahuwshua

A=B. People SEE the Word and He talks to them. And Yahuwshua is the Word of Yahweh, no question, read post advent scriptures, it's all over the place B=C. C is the Creator see Colossians. A=B=C.

Sounds convincing, right? Except for neither Yahweh nor Yahshua are the WORD. The WORD is the LOGOS (http://www.sabbatarian.com/Content/PreExistence.html), and the LOGOS is a MOTIVE which includes the "begetting of righteous children".

Strong's Concordance: Greek #3056, Logos;"A Motive" or "An Intent", or "An Utterance with Motive or intent".

John 1:1-5 (A Major Trinitarian Deception)
1 In the beginning was the Word (Strong's #3056, LOGOS; a Motive or Intent, an utterance or thought), and the Word (Utterance with Motive or Intent) was with EL (YHVH), and the Word (Utterance with Motive or Intent) was (of) EL. 2 The same (Utterance with Motive or Intent) was in the beginning with EL (YHVH).
3 All things were made (created) by Him (YHVH according to Motive or Intent or Plan); and without Him (YHVH according to Motive or Intent or Plan) was not anything made that was made.
4 In Him (YHVH according to Motive or Intent or Plan of Salvation) was life; and the life (eternal) was the light of men.
5 And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it (The Light or Gospel of Righteousness) not.

NOTE: The Messiah is not "The Logos;" The Messiah is the "Instrument Of Our Salvation," and the "Intent, Plan or Motive is Salvation" for YHVH's "Elect," "Appointed," or "Chosen Few."

Strong's Concordance, also, list the Messiah as the "Divine Expression," but does not say that Messiah is "The Logos." A "Divine Expression" is a figure of speech that must, also, remain within the overall meaning of the definition. Obviously, the Messiah was always "Intended" to play a major role in "Salvation." However, "The Logos" is not just simply a "Plan of Salvation", because YHVH's primary motive has always been to Spiritually Beget Righteous Children "In His Spiritual Image"; of which the Messiah is the eldest, and "The Chosen Few" are Messiah's Spiritual Siblings.

So, in order for the A=B=C argument above to be true, as per John 1 in the above argument, Yahshua would have to be the WORD (he is not), BUT HE IS "THE SPOKESMAN" OR "PROXY SPEAKER" ON YHVH's BEHALF; AND Yahweh would have to also be the WORD (HE is not) BUT YHVH IS THE SOURCE OF THE WORD; and the WORD would have to be them both (THEY are not). The conclusion AND the premises are all false, thereby rendering the argument false.

MOREOVER SCRIPTURE AND/OR APOSTOLIC WRITINGS DO NOT SUPPORT THE FALSE CONCLUSION EITHER. FOR EXAMPLE:

John 8:28
Then said Messiah unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am [he], and [that] I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things (as YHVH's SPOKESMAN or Proxy or ambassador to mankind).

Not only that, but Yahshua would have to have the same eternal attributes as Yahweh (meaning he would have to have always been immortal) which he was not. Yahweh would also have to be a flesh and blood man. However, we already know that Yahweh is not a man.

Numbers 23:19
Yahweh is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Yahshua is also not the saviour. Only YAHWEH is SAVIOUR:

Isaiah 43:11
I, even I, am YHWH; and beside me there is no saviour.

Isaiah 45:21
Tell ye, and bring them near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient time? who hath told it from that time? have not I YHWH? and there is no YHWH else beside me; a just YHWH and a Saviour ; there is none beside me.

Hosea 13:4
Yet I am YHWH thy YHWH from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know no YHWH but me: for there is no saviour beside me.

Ben Sira 24:24
Faint not to be strong in the Lord; that he may confirm you, cleave unto him: for YHWH Almighty is YHWH alone, and beside him there is no other Savior.

ONLY YAHWEH CAN FORGIVE SINS BECAUSE ONLY YAHWEH IS SAVIOR!

So, knowing these things, did Yahshua forgive people's sins? Answer: No, he did not. ONLY YAHWEH can forgive sins because only YAHWEH is Saviour!

NOTE: We must remember that the Bible has been tampered with, this is a historical fact that is often overlooked, and has consistently been overlooked for centuries of Bible study. By declaring the Bible to be both the literal WORD of YHWH and the infallible WORD of YHWH, the Church attempted to make the Bible unquestionable. A few brave people have taken it upon themselves to bring these things into the light, and in the past, were murdered, burned and tortured for doing so.

No matter, you, the people, deserve to hear the truth on all spiritual matters, and any risk is worth everything (this is an act of SELFLESS LOVE).

2 Timothy 1:7
For YHWH hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

1 John 4:18
There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

The following verses refer to Yahshua forgiving and healing the sin of a man sick of the palsy (also repeated in Mark 2, Luke 5):

Matthew 9
1 And he entered into a ship, and passed over, and came into his own city.
2 And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy (Strong's G3885, from a derivative of G3886 from G3089: one who is bound as a prisoner of sin), lying on a bed: and Yahshua seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy (prisoner of sin); Son, be of good cheer ; thy sins (have) be(en) forgiven thee.
3 And, behold, certain of the scribes said within themselves, This man blasphemeth .
` 4 And Yahshua knowing their thoughts said , Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?
5 For whether is easier, to say, Thy sins (have) be(en) forgiven thee; or to say, Arise, and walk?
6 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to (acknowlege the) forgive(ness) (of) sin(s), (then saith he to the sick of the palsy (prisoner to sin), Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.
7 And he arose, and departed to his house. 8 But when the multitudes saw it, they marvelled, and glorified YHWH, which had given such power unto men.

NOTE: Blood is "LIFE", the words are interchangeable.

Genesis 9:4
But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.

Leviticus 17:11
For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.

All physical things are meant to teach a spiritual lesson! Yahshua's LIFE was given to us to show us how to be clean from our SIN, that is, by living a life of self-sacrifice. Yahshua's LIFE and MINISTRY became the "Divine Expression" of "Let there be LIGHT".

Genesis 3:22
And YHWH said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat , and live for ever:

Did Yahshua forgive the sins of the people, or did he just merely recognize by their "ATTITUDE" that they were forgiven (because only YHWH can forgive sin)? To SAY someone is forgiven of their sins is an entirely different thing than acutally forgiving them (but we can forgive people who commit selfish acts against us, can we not?).

IN ORDER TO BE FORGIVEN of our SINS of SELF, we must be TRULY REPENTANT! YAHWEH does NOT forgive the UNREPENTANT of SIN! Why should HE?

Jeremiah 31:34
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know YHWH: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith YHWH: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.

2 Corinthians 12:21
And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed.

Revelation 9:20
And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: 21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

Ben Sira 48:15
For all this the people repented not, neither departed they from their sins, till they were spoiled and carried out of their land, and were scattered through all the earth: yet there remained a small people, and a ruler in the house of David:

James 5:16
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed . The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

It would have been EASY for Yahshua to identify WHO was Truly Repentant and who was not, just as it is easy for "The Chosen" to use the discernment (judgement) they have been gifted with to identify the Truly Repentant, because the Truly Repentant desire to do Yahweh's will, just as Yahshua desired to do Yahweh's will.

John 8
6 This they said , tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Yahshua stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.
7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself , and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. 8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Yahshua was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
10 When Yahshua had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?
11 She said , No man. And Yahshua said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.
12 Then spake Yahshua again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth (emulates) me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
13 The Pharisees therefore said unto him, Thou bearest record of thyself; thy record is not true.
14 Yahshua answered and said unto them, Though I bear record of myself, yet my record is true: for I know whence I came, and whither I go; but ye cannot tell whence I come, and whither I go.
15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.
16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: for I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me (Yahshua judges righteously by the Spirit)
