Who is the Son of G-d?
This "Suffering Servant" Holds the Key
to Your Salvation
(The following tract was being handed out by two Hasidic young men at Times Square on New Years Eve day, as they invited passers-by to put on Tefilim in honour of the Sabbath which was to occur on the following day, January 1, 2000. Both were members of the Lubavitcher movement, and disciples of that school of thought that held the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendal Schneerson, to be the messiah, or Moshiac, himself):
You were created so that you could recognize your Creator, love him, and serve him here on earth. But do you know who G-d really is? The answer to this question surprises many people.
It is an easy mistake to think that one is worshipping the one, true G-d, while actually serving a false one. To help prevent this mistake, G-d described Himself in the Bible, warning us to remember how He appeared when He gave the Ten Commandments:
And the Eternal spoke to you from the middle of the Fire, you heard the sound of words, but you saw no form, only a voice...
And guard your souls carefully, for you did not see any form on the day the Eternal spoke to you in Horev from the middle of the fire, lest you become corrupt and make for yourselves an idol, an image of any physical shape, the form of man and woman...(Deut.4:12, 15-16).
In other words, G-d has no physical shape. He is infinite and unlimited, and never appears in the form of any human.
Nor does God have any "partners." He alone is the only One Who brings us eternal salvation, as He says in the Bible:
Am I not the Eternal? And there is no other god beside Me--a just G-d and Savior; there is none else. Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth, for I am G-d and there is none else...(Isaiah 45:21-22).
Anyone who makes the mistake of worshipping a man for spiritual salvation will be betrayed. (Psalm 146:3). Eternal life comes directly from G-d, Who is One and infinite, and not through any mediator.
G-D's FIRSTBORN SON
So how has G-d brought his message of truth to the world? According to the Bible, G-d declares that He does have a special son whose mission is to bring His blessings and His salvation to the entire world.
WHO IS THIS SON? Many religious leaders have offered their opinions on the identity of His son, but really we should find out G-d's opinion on this matter.
In the Book of Exodus, G-d openly proclaims His son to the world: "Thus says the L-rd: My firstborn son is ISRAEL." (Exodus 4:22).
"Israel" is the Jewish people--ALL OF THEM. The Jews were chosen by G-d to be His special "son," to be, in the words of the Bible, "a kingdom of priests and a holy nation" for the whole world. (Exodus 19:6).
All people are G-d' children, of course, but the Jews are like a "firstborn son" who brings G-d's Word to his younger brothers. Every person who learns from the Jews, and helps them fulfill their special role, becomes a part of G-d's kingdom.
Unfortunately, many times people have not listened to the Jews. For many centuries, the Christian church killed hundreds of thousands of innocent Jews--men, women, and children--to prevent their holy message from reaching the rest of the world. Today, church leaders still try to silence the Jewish message by sending missionaries to convert Jews to Christianity!
The Bible tells us that the Jews would suffer greatly, not just for their own sins, but also for the sake of bringing G-d's Word to a rebellious world:
Comfort, comfort my people, says your G-d. Persuade Jerusalem and call to her, FOR HER TIME IS FULL, for her sins have been repaid; FOR SHE HAS RECEIVED FROM THE HAND OF THE LORD DOUBLE FOR ALL HER SINS...(Isaiah 40:1-2).
SALVATION THROUGH THE LAW
The Jewish people have been taught the secret to eternal life and blessings for all people, and now they finally have the freedom to reveal G-d's message.
According to that message, the key that unlocks the door to a personal relationship with G-d is His Law--one part for the Jews, the other part for the rest of the world.
At Mount Sinai, God gave the Ten Commandments (and hundreds of others) to the Jewish people. These laws apply only to the Jews in their special role as the world's spiritual leaders.
But for everyone else, G-d gave the SEVEN Commandments (and dozens of other laws). These commandments were given to Noah, after he left the ark that saved his family from the great flood, as an eternal covenant with all the peoples of the earth. (Genesis 8:20--9:17). Since Mount Sinai, the Jews have carried the message of these Seven laws to all the peoples.
A non-Jew who follows these commandments is called a Child of Noah, and he receives both eternal life and G-d's blessings in his earthly life. By doing good works exactly as G-d commands, he earns a close relationship with his Creator.
A Child of Noah celebrates certain "Old Testament" holidays, not Christian holidays. He prays to God in the proper way, according to G-d's instructions. He also helps the poor, and he guides his fellow humans--including non-religious Jews--back to G-d's Law. A Child of Noah learns how to redeem every part of his life from the emptiness of modern existence, becoming a "soldier" in G-d's spiritual army.
THE MESSIAH's MESSAGE TO THE WORLD
By asking the Jews for spiritual guidance and turning back to "Old Testament" Law, a Child of Noah also accomplishes the most important task of all: He helps bring the Messiah to redeem the entire world.
The Messiah is a Jewish king who will gather all the Jewish people to Israel, destroy all evil, rebuild the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, and bring true freedom to the world by returning everyone to the Law. He will institute G-d's eternal kingdom here on earth.
The Messiah will teach the Word of G-d to all nations, causing Christianity and all other religions to disappear. The Bible says that everyone will become a Child of Noah, thirsting for the ancient Truth:
O L-rd, my strength and my fortress, and my refuge in the day of distress, gentiles will come to You from the ends of the earth and say, We have inherited only lies from our fathers, vanity and things which are not useful. Can a man make gods for himself, and they are not gods?
Therefore, behold, I will cause them to know, this time I will let them know My hand and My strength, and they will know that My Name is Hashem...(Jeremiah 16:19-21).
In our generation the spiritual leader of the Jewish people--and therefore of the whole world--is Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson (known as the "Lubavitcher Rebbe"), in New York. He is a righteous prophet who has never sinned, nor even been tempted, in his entire life; indeed he has brought hundreds of thousands of Jews and gentiles back to the Law. Moreover, he is a direct descendant of King David.
The Rebbe has revealed that the Messiah will finally arrive now, in our generation, amidst great miracles. He has also announced that every Jew, and every gentile, is a representative of G-d to help bring the Messiah immediately.
AN URGENT CALL TO ACTION
In the Book of Genesis, G-d told Abraham that his descendants, the Jewish people, would bless the world with the light of G-d's Word. Only by turning to the Jews can anyone join G-d's holy kingdom:
And I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse those who curse you; and through you all the families of the earth will be blessed...(Genesis 12:3).
Regardless of your race, religious background, or nationality, G-d is calling on you to help the Jewish people bring the Messiah. You don't have to be Jewish to help; in fact the Children of Noah can serve G-d in special ways that Jews cannot, since G-d's Law is stricter for Jews.

While being helped with the Tefilim, and rehearsed through the prayer Baruch Atah Adonai, Elohaynu Melech ha-olam... I reminded the two young men of the words: For with stammering lips and another tongue will he speak to this people, (Isaiah 28:11), and said to them that it was very possible that when the Messiah comes he will not even know how to speak Hebrew. They looked at each other, and then at me, and said: "Well just so long as he comes."

OF WHOM WE HAVE MANY THINGS TO SAY, AND HARD TO BE UTTERED, SEEING WE ARE DULL OF HEARING.
For when for the time we ought to be teachers, we have need that one teach us again what be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not strong meat.
For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil...(Hebrews 5:10-14).
Not discerning the Lord's Body...(1 Corinthians 11:23-29; Revelation 11:8).
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ (Hesus-Krishna) (Lord of the West, Lord of the East), which according to his abundant Mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
To an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled, and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven (beyond the normal state of human understanding) for you,
Who are kept by the Power of God through faith unto salvation, READY TO BE REVEALED IN THE LAST TIME...(1 Peter 1:3-5).
The Mighty God, even the Lord, hath spoken, and called the earth from the Rising of the Sun (see Malachi, chapter 4) unto the going down thereof.
Out of Zion, the Perfection of Beauty, God hath shined...(Psalm 50:1,2).
(Therefore) Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the New Moon, or of the Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; BUT THE BODY IS OF CHRIST...(Colossians 2:16,17).
Take heed brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief, in departing from the living God.
But exhort one another daily, WHILE IT IS CALLED TODAY; lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
For we are made partakers of Christ, if we hold the beginning of our confidence steadfast unto the end...(Hebrews 3:12-14).
Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought:
But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory...(1 Corinthians 2:6-8).
Read The Mystical Shape of the Godhead, by Gershom Scholem, (Ezekiel 1:5).
He who sees me (the Universal Self) present in all beings, and sees all beings existing in me, I am never out of sight of him, nor is he ever out of sight of me...(The Bhagavadgita, Chapter VI).
But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into that same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord...(2 Corinthians 3:18).
But as many as Received Him (the Metatron, the Divine Angel of the Lord's Presence, who reveals himself in the East as the Lord of lords and King of all kings, but in the West as the perfect human sacrifice), to them gave he Power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His Name...(John 1:12; Hebrews 12:12-29).
For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;
And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures (understand Hosea 6:1-3):
And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the Twelve:
After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep.
After that he was seen of James; then of all the apostles.
And last of all he was seen of me also, as one born out of due time...(1 Corinthians 15:3-8, Exodus 24:10-13).
It is not possible for anyone to see anything that actually exists unless one become like them. This is not the way with (the unspiritual) man in the world. He sees the sun without being a Sun, and he sees heaven and earth and all these things, but he is not these things...But you saw the Spirit and became Spirit. You saw Christ and became Christ. So in this place (the natural state of mind) you do see yourself. But in that place you do see yourself, and what you see you shall become...(The Gospel of Phillip).
But we see (Jesus) who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many children unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through suffering.
For both He that sanctifieth, and they who are sanctified are all of One: for which cause He is not ashamed to call them brethren...(Hebrews 2:9, 11-18).
"This is based upon the premise that specific sefirot stand in particular relationship of radiation with other sefirot...The face of one turns toward another and consequently there develops between them a path of (historic) influence...
Such channels are paths of reciprocal influence between the different sefirot. This process is not a one-way influx from cause to effect. It also operates from effect to cause, dialectically turning the efffect into a cause." Kabbbalah, by Gershom Scholem, p.116.

Each letter is a complete thought, like a complete book, since they are letters written by the Unity...(The Gospel of Truth, The Nag Hammadi Library).
Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, UNTO A PERFECT MAN, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ...(Ephesians 4:13).
THE PERFECT MAN (Genesis 5:1)
Both Adam, both Christ. (ADaM = Adam, David, Messiah).
Alas! for the day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
For it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord of hosts, that I will break his (the Prince of this world) yoke from off thy neck, and will burst thy bonds, and strangers shall no more serve themselves of (Jacob):
But they shall serve the Lord their God, AND DAVID THEIR KING, WHOM I WILL RAISE UP TO THEM...(Jeremiah 30:7-9).
King Messiah(s) shall indeed appear in our time from among the Jews, on the Jewish or Female side of the Tree of Life, but not in accordance with the limited, imperfect (Zionist) worldview of the Jewish people, or of these young Lubavitchers who sadly lack a total understanding of the meaning of the Christian epoch, and of the universal precepts of the Sacred Torah. But in deference to Jewish understanding, also definetly not in accordance with any of the literal interpretations (or non-interpretations) of the Christian religion, which is just as sadly ignorant of the role of the Jews in this age-ending drama, or the full import of Paul's words at Romans, chapter 11. (KJV). It will be as Paul (Elisha) also said, expressing in his own written texts the most sublime insights (or farsights) of the Christian revelation:
For I fear, lest, WHEN I COME I shall not find you such as I would, and I shall be found unto you such as ye would not: lest there be debates, envyings, wraths, strifes, backbitings, whisperings, swellings, tumults.
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.
Paul, speaking in the spirit of Hermes-Mercurius-the Thrice-majestic, says: This is the Third Time I am coming to you. In the mouth of Two or Three witnesses shall every word be established...(2 Corinthians 12:20 to 13:1).
For whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord shall be saved.
How then shall they (the Jews) call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they (the rest of the Church) believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?
And how shall they preach, except they be Sent? (Open up the pages of the Book of Ezekiel) as it is written, How beautiful are the Feet of them that preach the gospel of Peace, and bring glad tidings of good things...(Romans 10:13-15; Isaiah 52:7; Nahum 1:15).

In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; AND THE HOUSE OF DVD SHALL BE AS GOD, AS THE ANGEL OF THE LORD BEFORE THEM...(Zechariah 12:8).
And in that day Seven Women (the entire Church) shall take hold of one Man, saying, We will eat our own bread (and not other's), and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name (DVD = balance), to take away our reproach.
In that day shall the Branch of the Lord be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth shall be excellent and comely for them that are escaped of Israel...(Isaiah 4:1,2).
And there shall be upon every high mountain, and upon every high hill, rivers and streams of water in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall.
Moreover the light of the Moon (the remnant in Judaism) shall be as the light of the Sun (the remnant in Christianity), and the light of the Sun shall be Sevenfold, as the light of Seven days, in the day that the Lord bindeth up the breach of his people, and healeth the stroke of their wound...(Isaiah 30:25, 26).
The Sun and the Moon
He hath appointed the Moon for seasons and the Sun knoweth his (own) going down...(Psalm 104:19).
