YHVH: Tzadik uMatzedik of him who believes in Him
“Yeshua HaMashiach Whom God has set forth to be a Propitiation – leKapparah, through faith in His blood – bedamO”
“For a demonstration of His righteousness; because, in His forbearance, He had passed over [with neither punishment nor remission] the sins people had committed in the past; to demonstrate His righteousness at this the present age; that He might Himself be Just, and the Justifier of him who has faith in Yeshua.” Romim 3:25-26
The holy God accepted, since Gan Eden, the blood of animals that could only cover sins but could never take them away, forgiving the sinner that, with a whole heart, would bring the korban to the Altar, because God promised the Redeemer of Israel – Goalo, Seed of Avraham, of David, of a virgin from the house of David – The Guarantor of a superior Covenant, based upon The superior blood, in His appointed time – moadO! (Bereshit 12:3; Drivey Hayamim Álef 17:11; Tehilim 89; Yeshaiahu 7:14; 44:6; ‘Ivrim 7:22; 8:6)
Because of the superior blood, in His appointed time and, only because of that, He accepted the blood of animals!
“To demonstrate His righteousness at this present time; that He might Himself be Just, and the Justifier of him who has faith in Yeshua.”
This moed, is the time determined, by the Eternal God, for a meeting in the very place determined by Him!
As previously revealed, the time, place and event determined – moed, plainly manifested and registered, dividing the history before and after it, the demonstration of Tzidekat Elohim, is:
14th of Nissan (the beginning of the months) of the year 32 A.D., the fulfillment of Pessach, beHar Moriah, beTzion, Yerushalayim!
Exactly 483 years or 173.880 + 4 days “from the going forth of the word to restore and build Jerusalem” (Daniel 9:25,26), a decree issued by Artaxerxes, in the twentieth year of his reign, 465 a.C. (Nechemiah 2:1), BEFORE the destruction of the Second Temple, in the year 70 A.D.! (Daniel 9:26)
The Mount Moriah beTzion, Jerusalem
Where the Righteousness of God
was placed before the eyes of all,
fulfilling what had been revealed,
in figure and shadow of celestial things,
on Mount Sinai – HaMishkan.
YHVH: Just and the Justifier – Tzadik uMatzedik
YHVH is righteous
“YHVH passed by before him and proclaimed: YHVH YHVH El (Echad), merciful and gracious, slow to anger, rich in goodness and truth; keeping mercy unto the thousandth generation, forgiving iniquity, transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and upon grandchildren, unto the third and unto the fourth generation.” Shemot 34:6,7
“YHVH is slow to anger, but great in power; and He does not leave the guilty unpunished...” Nachum 1:3
YHVH is the Justifier – Matzedik
The justification is a forensic declaration of justice
It results of the gracious imputation, by God, of the Justice of Mashiach
– The Righteous Work of God, to the one that believes in Him, the sinner that cannot, by himself, do any work of justice to be accepted!
Therefore, it is the judicial act of God whereby He justly declares and treats as righteous the one who believes in Yeshua Mashiach.
The justified believer has been declared by the Judge Himself to have nothing laid to his charge (Yeshaiahu 43:25).
So, faith is not a substitute for righteoussness, but faith is righteousness; righteousness in the germ indeed, but still bona fide righteousness!
The act of faith inaugurates a righteous life and a righteous character, derived from God.
So what room is left for the sinner to boast?
“Where then is the boasting? It is excluded. By what kind of Law? Of Works? No, but by a Law of Faith!” Romim 3:27
The justification is provisioned by the grace of God, therefore, appropriated only by faith!
“Now if it is by grace, then it is no longer of works; otherwise grace is no longer grace… For in His sight no one alive will be justified, for through the Torah comes the full knowledge of sin, because what Torah really does is show people how sinful they are.” Romim 11:6; 3:20
The definition of grace, favor, has its strength in being it, the favor, undeserved, without merit!
The Torah is not of faith, it demands merit to accomplish it (Vaicra 18:5; Galatim 3:12;). Therefore, the Torah will exactly show this fact – the man has no merit, he is a criminal before the Holiness of God.
Therefore, it is the grace of God, His favor to the one that doesn’t deserve absolutely nothing, that gives him all the blessings promised by the righteous love of God, exactly because he accepted this truth, leading him to the place where he can be reached by it.
The necessary acknowledgment by the one ‘without merit’
“All of us are like someone unclean, all our righteousnesses are like menstrual rags; we wither, all of us, like leaves; and our iniquities, like the wind, take us away… We all, like sheep, went astray; we turned, each one, to his own way…” Yeshaiahu 64:5(6); 53:6a
The righteous grace of god
“Yet YHVH laid on Him (Seh HaPessach) the iniquity of us all… By His knowledge shall My Righteous Servant – Yeshua Mashiach justify many, for He shall bear their iniquities.” Yeshaiahu 53:6b,11
“Thus says YHVH: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches; instead, let the boaster boast about this: that he understands and knows Me – that I am YHVH Who exercise mercy, justice and righteousness in the earth; for in these things I delight, says YHVH.” Yirmiahu 9:23 (24)
Here we have part of the testimony of Mottel Baleston, in the site – Imet Messiah.com
“Because the only people I knew who were believers in Jesus were all people in our public school who were Italian Catholics, I imagined that Jesus was an Italian, and so, the understanding that He’s actually Jewish was a shock!
And then to hear that the New Testment was written by Jews… I couldn’t believe it!
When I opened the New Testment, I was expecting to find a handbook on how to persecute the Jews. My grandparents had warned me that it was written by people who killed the Jews. That’s what I was expecting to see, and then when I’m opening it, I’m reading a story written by Jews about Jewish people!
I opened it, and here’s the first sentence: It says: “This is the genealogy of Jesus the Messiah, the Son of David, the Son of Abraham…” So, three people are mentioned, and they’re all Jewish!
I was very shocked, and as I continued to read, I’m reading the story of a Jewish man, who was born in a Jewish village, in a Jewish country, and one day walks into a synagogue and announces that He’s the Messiah…
As I came to Faith that Yeshua – that Jesus was the Messiah, it was clear that it was the most Jewish thing I could do. This is not a person who is a renegade to our people, this is The One Who was promised in our Bible!
The 53rd chapter of Isaiah – it is astonishing! If you would just read that chapter without the Bible being around it, you would say: “Uh! This is some Christian Bible this is Jesus!
When you realize though that it’s in the middle of our Bible, our Jewish Bible…”
For this reason, the justification of the Jew is out of the faith, the germinating faith from that faith that was detailed and promised before, by God, to His people!
But, for the goyim, who are separated from HaMashiach, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers from the Covenants of the Promise, having no hope and without God in the world, their justification is through faith, from the beginning announced to Israel, the vineyard of YHVH’s delight!
There is no distinction between Jews and Goyim concerning sin.
But, as Ruach HaKodesh pointed out, the Jews have advantage in every way – first of all, because they were entrusted with the Words of God!
The goyim despised the full knowledge of God after careful investigation (Romim 1:28), traded the glory of the incorruptible God for the likeness of an image of corruptible creatures (Romim 1:23), exchanged the truth of God for a lie, worshiping and serving the creature rather than the Creator (Romim 1:25), having been given up to themselves (Romim 1:24,26,27) by the Holy God, “Who, in times past, allowed all peoples to walk in their own ways; yet He did not leave Himself without witness.” Ma’asey Hashlichim 14:16,17
The Nation of Israel was not chosen within the nations, but, she was created by God to be His witness to those that had despised Him! Out of an old man and of a barren and old woman, both worn out and without seed (Beereshit 18:11; 17:17), God created Israel, supernaturally vivified Avraham and Sara, forming the great Israelite nation.
In Yeshaiahu 5, YHVH calls Israel His vineyard, “He dug up its stones and cleared them away, planted it with the choicest vines, built a watchtower in the middle of it, and carved out in its rock a winepress. He expected it to produce good grapes, but it produced only sour, wild grapes… Now the vineyard of YHVH Tzvaot is the house of Israel, and the men of Yehudah are the plant He delighted in.” Yeshaiahu 5:2,7
YHVH called Israel “an olive tree, beautiful, full of leaves and good fruit. Now… He has set it on fire…” (Yirmiahu 11:16), there is to say, a cultivated, cared olive tree, and, not wild olive tree that grows by itself, incapable of bearing fruits or inappropriate for consumption (dicionarioinformal.com.br).
Vineyard of choicest vines and the good olive tree, because God graciously granted them with His knowledge, showing Himself to them even in the Shekhinah (שְׁכִינָה), making them promises, that would reach all the nations of the Earth through Israel.
But, He reveals that the vine produced wild grapes, the good olive turned itself, in infidelity, to other gods.
Do not let yourself be deceived, YHVH by no means acquits the guilty, but, “a broken and contrite heart, O God, You will not despise!” (Sl 51:19)
Because only YHVH can be the Savior (Yeshaiahu 43:11), He made Himself flesh, Seed of Avraham, of Yehudah, of David, of a virgin of the house of David – ImmanuEl: God with us (Bereshit 3:15; Yeshaiahu 7:14) to be the Redeemer – Goel and the Ransom – Seh HaPessach!
“Behold the blood of the Covenant – Hineh dam-haBrit which YHVH cut with you… Brit HaChadashah, cut with the house of Israel and with the house of Yehudah…. For I will forgive teir iniquity and their sin will I remember no more!” Shemot 24:8; Yirmiahu 31:30(31),33(34)
