FOREWORD

This book is a revised edition of my first book titled: “We Are Gods: Jesus Said So.” That book is now being shutdown in all publication channels to be replaced by this book. The changes begin with the title. The phrase “Jesus Said So” is changed to “The Son Of God Said So”. This is due to the recent learning of the author about the real name of our beloved Savior. Jesus is not his name. His name is a Hebrew name pronounced Yahuswa, which means YaHuWaH saves or salvation of YaHuWaH.

YaHuWaH is how the name of the Father was pronounced in Hebrew. It is spelled YHWH in English when transliterated from its Hebrew spelling in ancient times. This name has two popular pronunciations in modern times: Jehovah and Yahweh. These modern names lost the message that is with the ancient Hebrew name of the Father. The reader may wonder why the names should be changed in this book? The reason is that this is a salvation issue that no church as of this writing is willing to talk about. Chapter 15 is added to explain all these.

All references to the Father and the Son in this book have been changed to their Hebrew names. The changes have strong scriptural bases. In the book of Jeremiah chapter 23, verses 25 and 26 of the Old Testament, the Father in heaven complained about the prophets who cause his people to forget his name. The book of Joel chapter 2 verse 32 says, those who call on the name of YHWH shall be saved. This is repeated in the book of the Acts chapter 2 verse 21.

This complaint of the Father about causing his name to be forgotten continues to be defied until now. Even the name of our beloved Savior was changed, maybe because the name of the Father is in his name too. It looks like all religions of today lead us to the gates of hell instead of the way, the truth and the life.

This book reveals the contrast between the message of the scripture and the teachings of the world’s religions. The Scriptures reveal how close God is to us, but our religions teach us to honor God with our lips but move our hearts away from Him. Our beloved Savior taught that we can do what he did if we have faith, but religion teaches us otherwise. Our beloved Savior said that we are gods and children of the most high, but the preachers say it is a sin to desire to be like God.


CHAPTER 1

INTRODUCTION

Your loved one dies. Friends console you saying, “It is God’s will.”

You watch TV. Suddenly, a newsbreak portrays loss of life and property caused by a tsunami, and someone beside you says “How terrible. This is wrath of God.”

Another bad news comes. A father kills his family and commits suicide, and we utter “Oh my God.”

Are these the will of our God? All our life we are told that everything is the will of God. Do you not sense something wrong in this teaching? Frankly, I do. For me, it is like accusing God of a crime he is prohibiting.

Our God is the God of the living, right? Right. Then there must be somebody else responsible for the deaths in this world. Okay, let us blame Satan. However, there are people who say that God created Satan. So, we go back to where we were before, blaming God again. If this is our attitude, don’t you think we are worse than the atheist? The atheist does not blame God because he has no God. On judgment day who would you prefer if you were God? Those who do not know you but do not accuse you or those who say they know you but accuse you? The answer

is obvious. If the atheist changes his mind, he could go to heaven ahead of us.

Once my mother was talking about her sickness, old age and the manner of death she wants. Then she paused and asked me about the way I stared at her.

So, I replied: “I thought you believe in God.” She said: “Of course I do. I asked her: “Why do you believe in the works of Satan?” She asked: “Which works?” I replied: “Sickness, aging and death, these are not of God.” She smiled and said: “You go now. You’ll be late for work.”

Don’t you think it is time we know who our God really is? How do we do that? Simple, seek Him. We should not depend too much on our hand-me-down religion. We know how to read, analyze and understand. Read your Bible. The words are simple and direct. It is not so technical. Some say the Bible is not complete. Correct! But can they finish reading all of it if it were complete? Others say, it was written only by men. Who do they expect to write for them, God? God inspired the Prophets to write the Scripture because we have unlearned the skill to read what God has written in our mind and heart in the beginning. God is presenting it to our five senses in case we are able to hear and see. In fact God is reaching out to us but the line is always busy. The prophets hear Him and they are sharing the experience.

There is another way of knowing God, aside from reading the Bible and any other sources you may deem appropriate. Many of us know this already. You are more like God than you could ever think. There is something inside that is divine. He is the original you. In other words, we can seek God inside and outside.

The worst mistake that we can so is to stop seeking Him, because actually there is no stopping; either we seek God or we turn away from God. We have only two choices. In other words, those who do not seek Him are really turning away. As we turn away from God, we go to the doG. The more we turn away, the more we feel as though He is not around. (Luke 8:18 Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have.) Then we blame God for the consequences of our foolish choices. Our wrong use of a precious gift—the human will. At some point in time we blame God for not being with us. On the contrary, if we continue seeking God, the more we experience His presence and love, and the more easily we learn the right way to seek Him. However, God is always with us. As long as we live He is with us. Where, above us, before us, behind us, below or beside us? The most accurate answer is within us. (Luke 17:21 neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.) This is what this book is all about.

This book breaks the traditional presentation of references at the back of the book or at the bottom of the page. Bible references are written in line. They are italicized. The purpose is to make the information readily available as needed. It is strongly suggested that at the first time you read this book, read it in the sequence given by the table of contents. Every chapter is designed to prepare the reader for the next.


CHAPTER 2

THE WORLD OF CHAMPIONS

We all get depressed sometime. In one of my depressed moments, I remembered I was a champion. That is why I am here in the world of champions. We are all champions—no exception—all of us. If not, I could have not written these lines and you could not be reading them.

I remember I was once just as nothing as a microscopic single living cell. I found myself caught in a swimming marathon. There were thousands of us looking for another microscopic single living cell. The one we now call the ovum. We had to swim with all our might so that we can go faster than any one else. Now I could say I was the fastest, and I won the marathon. I found the ovum first and prevented the rest from getting near. The price for victory was life, because all the rest perished.

Only the ovum and I were left alive. The ovum and I were made of non-living matter: oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen, carbon, and traces of calcium, potassium and other minerals—non-living elements intricately arranged and designed into a cell by something that made the difference between us and the other lifeless elements around. That something felt like a light that made everything happen in a seemingly predetermined fashion. The ovum and I found us

unquestioningly obedient to the light. We did not know where the light came from. Where it was going and where it was leading us. The light made the ovum and I as one. There is no more distinction between the ovum and me. The ovum and I became a zygote—a single cell that floated in what seemed to be an ocean. I was led near what looked like a living wall. The light attached me to the wall.

The wall provided everything I needed to live in the moments that followed. By virtue of the light working from within me, I divided my self into many cells. The light with in me seemed to be dividing itself a little ahead of the way the cells did. Every time the center of light divided the result became cells. Millions and millions of cells were arranging themselves into tissues and organic systems. Suddenly I felt fluid rushing in rhythmic pulsating fashion bringing oxygen and nutrients all over me. The process was awesome and scary.

Then there came a pounding beat in my chest. My heart begun to function by itself, set by the pulsation of rushing blood thru my veins and arteries. I did not know how long the dream like process was. All I knew was that my own crying awakened me. I cried very hard. I did not feel like waking up from that dream. My awareness of this world came as a shock.

I was facing a world so alien and incomprehensible to me. I cried because of the shocking experience of being suddenly detached from the continuous supply of life’s necessities. This time I had to take in food and oxygen by myself. I had to defend myself from the continuous assault of pollutants and unfriendly germs.

The light, however, has prepared me to face this world. The light that created me from inanimate substances; the light that gave me life and made me a champion is still with me. This is the light that the darkness has never and will never put out. (John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:5 And light shineth in darkness; and the darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.) The light of life that never fails will never leave me. This light is in every one, every individual champion like you and me in this world.


CHAPTER 3

THE SILVER CORD

The story in Chapter 2 should give us an inspiring notion that we are all born champions. There is no reason in this world to get depressed, discouraged, feel defeated by failure, or feel desperately hopeless. In fact, our being here serves as a proof of our will to overcome and win, and that we passed the first impossible task. Impossible in the sense that the ratio of success to failure is one is to more than a million. This probability is lower than any lottery or game of chance ever invented. Despite that, we won.

The story also gives us more than a first hand experience of what Lazarus experienced when he came out of the tomb after being buried for 4 days (John 11:43 ”Now when He had said these things, He cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus, come forth!”.) More than a first hand experience of that child who rose from death after Yahuswa told everyone around that she was only sleeping and commanded her, "Talitha cumi" (Mark 5:41-44 Then He took the child by the hand, and said to her, “Talitha, cumi,” which is translated, “Little girl, I say to you, arise.” ) More than first hand experience in the sense that Lazarus and the girl needed not start from scratch like we all did when we started from dust, practically lesser than the dust because we started from the atoms and molecules of non-living substances inside the womb.

The conception story is a concrete demonstration of Yahuswa’s words saying: (Matthew3:9 and do not think to say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ For I say to you that God is able to raise children to Abraham from these stones). The story is just another version of creation in Genesis when God breathed life into the dust to create Adam. (Genesis 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.). This is a clear demonstration that the word of God is alive, working, and will work in us just in case it is not working well anymore.

The story also gives an assurance that no one among us is left alone on this earth. Let the placenta teach us a lesson. That cord supply life's necessities to the fetus. It resembles the lifeline between the mother ship and the astronaut in a space walk. In the early days of space exploration the astronaut would die instantly if the lifeline snapped. Later on, the astronauts could stay alive on the moon without the lifeline for a while. On the contrary, we appear to be able to live for years without the placenta. Are we really living in this world without a lifeline? The answer is no. The placenta is giving us a hint that something has to connect us to the source to continue living. The placenta is just a material representation of a real lifeline—the Silver Cord. It is there as long as we live, and we live as long as it is there. (Ecclessiastes 12:6 Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern. Ecclessiastes 12:7 Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. Ecclessiastes 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher, all is vanity.)

When the silver cord is cut off, our physical heart stops beating. Darkness takes over every brain cell and every cell of every bit of our flesh. The Light is gone back to heaven and our body returns to what we were before: oxygen, carbon, nitrogen, hydrogen, iron, calcium, potassium, magnesium, etc. In other words, dust. What for? Is there any sense in this? Perhaps there is sense, but is there something more sensible than this? The Bible says: "Vanity of vanities, …….all is vanity." There is something with more sense than this. We can do more like we always do more than the man on the moon. We can do more. Our ancestors did. They lived longer than us. Some even went back to heaven without dying as Yahuswa, Enoch (Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.) and Elijah did. (II Kings 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.)


CHAPTER 4

THE WORD

The lecturer in one of the seminars I attended once asked us: What is the driving force in our life? The attendees were divided into two groups and were told to discuss the matter during break time. There should be one representative for each group who should present in front the answer agreed during the discussion at break time.

The seminar resumed and the lecturer called on the representative of each group to present what had been discussed and agreed. It turned out that everybody discussed everything else except the assigned task during break time. So, the lecturer asked for volunteers. I volunteered for my group. The driving force in my life is the Word. The word John was talking about in the first chapter of his gospel. I told them to read the gospel according to John for details about the driving force in my life. After my short piece, the lecturer went a little further to reinforce what I stated by quoting the verses from the gospel cited. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.. John 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:5 And light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

There were still many things I wanted to say. I did not elaborate much because I did not want to steal the show from the lecturer. The word that I was referring to was the same word Yahuswa was talking about in the desert when he told Satan: “ ….,Man shall not live on bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.” (Matt 4:4) The same Word that went out of the mouth of God when He said: “…., Let there be light:…..” (Gen 1:3). The same Word that came out of the Father’s mouth saying: “….., Let us make man in our image, after our likeness, ……” (Gen 1:26) This is the same Word that raised Adam, and all of us from the dust. The Word makes the difference between the cell and the molecule; the difference between the living and the non-living thing; the driving force behind the protoplasm. This is the same Word that raised Lazarus from death; the Word that healed the lepers and the sick; the Word that opened the eyes of the blind and the mouth of the dumb; the Word that lights the center of our cells; and the Word that gives life to every bit of our flesh as long as we believe and have faith as strong and as great as that of Yahuswa, Enoch (Gen 5:24) and Elijah (II Kings 2:11).

The Word that lights my cells and gives life to every bit of my flesh has been with me since my birth. Unfortunately, for four decades, I did not know him well. I did not even seek Him. I only remembered him when I was not feeling well. One way or another, my behavior told him to step aside and give me a break. I could do this myself. I could manage. However, the Word did not give in. How lucky I have been. The Word knew I did not know what I was doing. If the Word backed down, I would have not reached this age. My heart would have stopped beating a long time ago.

Once, my dog in the house barked at me as if I was a stranger. I got mad, fiercely mad. If I had a pistol in my house I could have shot the dog for not knowing his master. The dog does not recognize the master that provides him food to eat. That dog deserved to die. However, I remembered acting like the dog for so many years. All those years, I did not recognize the master that gave me not only food to eat, but gave me no less than my life and every thing I need in order to live. I remembered Yahuswa saying: “Do not give what is holy to the dogs, they will only turn and attack you.” (Mat 7:6).

Yes, God forgive me, I acted like a dog for so many years. Not only did I not seek him, I forsook him. I crucified Him. Every time I used my mind to think against my neighbor; every time I hated my neighbor; every time I used my tongue against my neighbor; every time I hurt my neighbor; every time I cheated my wife, I crucified Him in my heart and in my mind, because He said: “Love thy neighbor as thyself.” I used all my blessings to curse other people. I was really against him since He said: “those who are not with me are really against me.”

Yahuswa also said: (Mat 12:30) “Those who do not help us gather is really scattering.” In fact I was really scattering His people away from Him since I did not help Him gather in anyway. I did not use my blessings to bring glory to the kingdom.

Another question ask of us to answer in the seminar was, what image or metaphor can you cite to represent you in this life? Another volunteer before me cited the vine. (John 15:5 I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him,

the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing. John 16:6 If a man abide not in me, he is cast forth as a branch, and is withered; and they are burned.) All I had to do was to reinforce it. I said, I am just a very small branch in the vine, as small as a drop of water in an ocean. However, I, as small as I am, am not forgotten, but in danger of being cut off from the vine if I do not change my ways. Once cut off, I will be withered and cast into the fire.


CHAPTER 5

THE UNENDING DEBATE

Since I was small, I have been hearing argumentations, controversies, debates and even ordinary discussions on whether Yahuswa was Man or God. This controversy will never end as long as there are people who insist that Yahuswa is man and there are people who insist that He is God. Either point of view will lead to nowhere. Happy are those who embrace both points of view for they are on the way to enlightenment. Yahuswa was both man and God.

If Yahuswa was not man why did he always refer to himself as the Son of Man? (Mat 16:27). Yahuswa never called himself the Son of God (Luke 9:22). It was the devil who always called Yahuswa the Son of God. (Mat 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, if thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread). During the temptation in the wilderness, Yahuswa replied to the devil by referring to himself as man. (Mat 4:4 But he answered and said, it is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.) Nathanael (John 1:49) called him the Son of God, but again he said: (John 1:51) “you will see heaven open and the angels coming down to and from the Son of Man.” Those who saw his miracles, even the evil spirits named Legion (Mark 5:7) whom

Yahuswa sent to the herd of pigs, called him the Son of God, but every time they did, Yahuswa asserted his being the Son of Man. What do you think? If Yahuswa was not man, would the devil tempt Him?

Would He feel hungry and thirsty like we all do? If He was not man, would he suffer, bleed, and die for three days? Think again. He went out of the womb as a child like all of us, and then matured into a full-grown man to perform the purpose of His lifetime on earth. He was man.

On the other hand, many times His godliness was questioned, but he responded to prove his detractors wrong. The Jews tried to stone Yahuswa when he said: “I and my Father are one”. Yahuswa asked them for which of his good works are they trying to stone him. (John 10:33 the Jews answered him, saying, for a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.) The Jews tried to stone him because he was making Himself a God. (John 10:34 Yahuswa answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?) (John 10:35 If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken ;) (John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the son of god?) (John 10:37 If I do not the works of my Father, believe me not.) (John 10:38 But if I do, though ye believe not me, believe the works: that ye may know, and believe, that the Father is in me, and I in him.) (John 10:39 Therefore they sought again to take him: but he escaped out of their hand.) Allow me to say the verses in modern English. “Is it blasphemy for me to say that I am the son of God? It is very obvious in these Bible verses that Yahuswa

was asserting his being God. That it was not blasphemy for him to make himself equal to God.

What is it really that Yahuswa wanted us to believe or to see? Why Yahuswa insisted on his being God in one circumstance, but emphasized his being man in another. Is it not obvious? It is, isn’t it? If it is obvious to you now, you can skip to the next chapter, but if it is not, please read on. Let us go back to the Old Testament for a while. (Genesis 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.) In this verse, it is very plain to see and understand that the image and likeness of God is in man. God did not qualify what kind of image, be it a lesser God or just an approximate likeness. He said, “Image and likeness” period. Do you think God was talking about a mediocre kind of image and likeness? This was God’s most valued creation, His masterpiece. He was so preoccupied and enjoying so much every moment. He was not joking. He was very serious. He was putting all His love into it.

God is not capable of making poor craftsmanship. He is perfect and a perfectionist, so we do not mess with Him about His creation even in our thoughts. Let us take another verse relative to this. (Genesis 1:27 And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.) The dust of the ground became the flesh (the Man) that clothed the image of God (the breath of Life) that is inside. What do you think? Did God do it himself? In a way, yes, but more specifically, God did it thru the Word, who is also

the Light, who is also the Christ, who is also the good Shepherd, who is also the Lamb, who is also the Messiah, who is the breath of life, who is the image and likeness of God, who is in every man, and who is in Yahuswa, who was speaking to Adam, who gave the commandment to Moses, who is talking to you now from inside of you if you can hear Him, every time you show mercy and forgive your neighbor. In other words, Yahuswa was the man who clothed the Christ that was inside. That is why He is called, Yahuswa the anointed one.

So that was it, in one circumstance he was talking about his flesh body when he says, “the Son of Man”. In another circumstance, he would refer to the Christ in Him when he said, “the Father and I are one”. Yahuswa does not want us to look at him as either man or God, but both man and God. If we look at Yahuswa as purely man, we are canceling the God in Him. This will make us vulnerable to the hoax of the false prophets. On the other hand, if we look at Yahuswa as purely God, we are canceling the man in Him. This will only lead us to look at Him as an ideal being, impossible to be emulated.

Yahuswa is both God and Man. He is the model of perfection. He is a man of perfection who almost changed his mind when he said, (Mark 14:36 “Father take this cup away from me if you will”, but made up his mind and said, “let your will be done not mine”). He is an inspiration to be emulated. (Matthew 5:48 Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.) Wait a second. Can we really emulate Yahuswa? Why not? Let us find out in the next chapter.


CHAPTER 6

OUR PURPOSE ON EARTH

Once, I found my self in a group prayer. The leader said: “Lord Jesus, please save me. I cannot save my self because I am not the Son of God. You, my Lord Jesus, are the only Son of God, please save me, save us.” I lost my concentration by the phrase “I am not the Son of God”. If he is not the Son of God, whose son is he? Are not all of us sons of God, though we were born of man? We are all sons of God, by virtue of the image of God that is inside of us all.

It is good to put all our faith in Yahuswa, but not in the sense that we look at Him as purely God and separate our selves as purely man. So much so that one can just say: all right God, I just can’t do it. But thank you very much for sending your Son. He’ll do it for me. I’ll just watch. Is that it? Just like that?

Yahuswa came into being to illustrate clearly how man can manifest and radiate the image of God that is inside—inside everyone, no exception. Conversely, the soul of Yahuswa was able to make man (Yahuswa) in the image of God (Christ). He was able to do the original task, the first command in the beginning: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” He was talking to you, to me, to all of us. That is why God said: “Let us…” He did not say I will. God said, “our image”, not my image, “our likeness”, not

my likeness. We were there in the beginning when we were still spirits of God.

God divided himself and created the Word. The Word was with God and the Word was also God. (John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.) Then the Word created the light and the universe. Then the Word divided himself into us. Then He told us the original task, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” It was not anymore God talking to us directly. It was the Word talking to us—the vine speaking to the branches. (John 15:1 "I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener.) (John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.)

And so, Adam divided himself into Eve, but they messed with it, and made man a lesser God. Adam and Eve became one and continued to break bread into Cain and Abel. Cain messed with it again. Instead of making man in the image of God, he killed Abel. Despite it, Adam and Eve continued to grow the vine and shared the wine.

The breaking of the bread and the sharing of the wine continued (Matthew 1:17 Thus there were fourteen generations in all from Abraham to David, fourteen from David to the exile to Babylon, and fourteen from the exile to the Christ.) for fourteen generations from Abraham to David; for fourteen generations from David to Babylon; and for fourteen generations from
