Paul Saw the Light! Will You?

When Paul was questioned by King Agrippa, he reported on the encounter with YahwehShua on the road to Damascus. Read this in Acts 26:12-20:

Whereupon as I went to Damascus with authority and commission from the chief priests, At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me.   And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.  And I said, Who art thou, Master? And he said. I am YahwehShua whom thou persecutest.  But rise and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in which I will appear unto thee;  Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee, To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto Elohim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.  Whereupon, O king Agrippa, I was not disobedient unto the heavenly vision:  But showed first unto them of Damascus, and at Jerusalem, and throughout all the coasts of Judaea, and then to the Gentiles, that they should repent and turn to Elohim, and do works meet for repentance.

Messiah Yahshua personally selected His twelve disciples before His death on the tree. However, we learn in Acts 26 that He personally selected Paul after His resurrection. By this time he had already appeared before the Father and had inherited the excellent name of YahwehShua.

Hebrews 1:4:  Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Paul said the being that spoke to him in this light identified Himself as YahwehShua. The King James Version says "Jesus” and others might say Yahshua, Yeshua, or even Yahushua. Which is it?

In other articles we have demonstrated that the Messiah who died on the tree in sin had His name blotted out.  Deuteronomy 29:20 declares that:  “Yahweh will not spare him, but then the anger of Yahweh and his jealousy shall smote against that man, and all the curses that are written in this book shall lie upon him, and Yahweh shall blot out his name from under heaven.”

Therefore His human or prophetic name was no longer of any value. The Father had blotted it out of the book of life

Now in Acts 4:12 Peter tells us, “there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved." Well, if the Messiah’s human or prophetic name was blotted out, there must be another name.

In Hebrews 1:3-4 we are told:

Who (the son) being brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;  Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

We are told then that He received a better name by inheritance. To inherit there has to be a death. There was, His!

Hebrews 9:16-17 explains the necessity of death for an inheritance:  “For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.  For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.”

Let’s return to the road to Damascus. The conversation between Paul and YahwehShua was conducted in Hebrew in verse 14:  “How much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to Elohim, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living Yahweh?”

Paul was a well-educated Pharisee who knew the language and the law. The conversation attracted his attention and he followed the guidance without hesitation.  He traveled and taught on behalf of YahwehShua. He did not respond to the command of a man but the resurrected Son of Yahweh.

Previously he had been arresting and imprisoning members of “the Way” or the “body of the Messiah”. After this singular encounter with the Son of Yahweh, in the light, he immediately changed the course of his life. This was sudden and dramatic.

Are you being called to make a similar sudden and dramatic about face in your life? You have encountered the website, Light of YahwehShua; now, what will you do? In the Greek New Testament, we are informed that the man, Yahshua was the light.

John 1:6-9: 

There was a man sent from Yahweh whose name was John.  The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.  He was not that Light but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lightest every man that cometh into the world.

He was the true light! So, is there a false light?  Yes, his name is Lucifer or Satan or God. Satan is a liar who has appropriated the identity of Messiah as the true Light.  Satan is the original identity thief.

Strong words, yes! Search the Scriptures and you will learn how toxic Satan is. He is implicated in a great deception and could even deceive the elect if we are not careful.

You must break away from traditions and all false religious systems and move toward the True Light. This is not easy but it can be done.

Notice in Acts 22:16 that we are told that following his encounter with YahwehShua in the Light, Paul was baptized. Read both accounts in Acts 22 and 26. Each passage gives you a more complete picture of what happened between Paul and YahwehShua.  In this end time you are encountering YahwehShua, the resurrected Savior. Remember, in John 12:46, Messiah said:  “I am come a Light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.”

Aren’t you tired of the darkness, confusion and deception of this world? Then, move toward the Light and find YahwehShua. Paul did and found his calling in life. Paul will be in the better resurrection where a 144,000 will stand before Yahweh with the name of the Father and Son on their foreheads.  Revelation 14-1:  “And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his name and his Father’s name written in their foreheads.”

Don’t reject this opportunity. It is not enough to have an intellectual understanding; one must act upon this knowledge. The sooner you take this step, the more time you have for the spirit to grow within you and produce fruit.

Pray to Yahweh for the truth. Contact this website by email and seek further guidance as Paul did from Ananias. May Yahweh bless and guide you in this magnificient journey to the True Light!
