JOSHUA (MOSES’ MINISTER) AND YAHSHUA (THE MESSIAH), WERE YAHWEH-ELOHIM MANIFESTED IN THE FLESH
It is necessary at this point to do a little back tracking, so that we might bring out a most interesting
and revealing phenomenon. When Moses had his vision at the Burning Bush and Yahweh-Elohim commissioned him to go back down
into Egypt to liberate his people from the bondage of Pharaoh, He (Yahweh-Elohim) told Moses, CERTAINLY I WILL BE WITH THEE
in Egypt (Exodus 3: 12). Yahweh- Elohim further demonstrated His power to be what He willed to be when He had Moses to cast
down his Rod to the ground and it turned to a serpent, and when he picked it up by the tail, it turned back into a rod again.
He also gave him two other signs that we will not deal with at this time, as we want to proceed with our main thought.
When Moses and Aaron came into Egypt, YAHWEH-ELOHIM WAS THERE WITH THEM AS HE SAID, but one would not appreciate
this fact without a revelation by the Holy Spirit. There was One in Egypt with Moses and Aaron by the name of Oshea whom Moses
called Joshua (correctly rendered, this is Yahshua; Numbers 13:8,16, H.N.B.), but there is no direct reference to this at
that time. The first account of this Yahshua, after they came out of Egypt, is given in the 17th chapter of Exodus where He
fights with the Amalekites and prevails as long as Aaron and Hur held up the arms of Moses, who was sitting on a Rock. Moses,
in his record of genealogies, lists Joshua as the Son of Nun, of the Tribe of Ephraim who was the second son of Joseph, and
right away some carnal minded person would think that Joshua was old man Nun’s son, but this is not true. THIS JOSHUA
was of NONE (Nun) of the Twelve Sons of Jacob or the Twelve Tribes of Israel. He was Elohim who had taken on a fleshly manifestation,
having not been born of any pre-existing fleshly parents, but Materialized out of the Incorporeal Spirit Form. Remember Yahweh-Elohim
has the power to BE WHAT HE WILLS TO BE. Joseph had prophesied to his brethren that Elohim would surely visit them and bring
them out of Egypt (Genesis 50:24-25). Thus He was with Moses and Aaron in Egypt as He had promised to be, but His true identity
was hid from the Israelites.
The Apostle Paul confirms that this Joshua (who was Yahshua)
was the one who led the Israelites out of Egypt for he says, “Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant,
how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; and were all immersed unto Moses in the cloud
and in the sea; and did all eat the same spiritual food; and did all drink the same spiritual drink; for they drank of that
Spiritual Rock that went with them: and that Rock was (Yahshua) the Messiah” (1 Corinthians 10:1-4, H.N.B.).
One might still question in his mind as to the veracity of Joshua being without any fleshly parents, not realizing
that he is over-throwing another scriptural tenet that he is asked to believe, and that is, Adam’s being created or
born of Virgin Mother Earth without any pre-existing physical parents, and farther on down the line, Yahshua the Messiah’s
virgin birth. If one cannot accept Joshua’s coming forth without physical parents, how can he accept Adam’s and
Yahshua the Messiah’s situations? One would ask then, why does Moses list him as an offspring of Ephraim who came out
of Joseph, or why is he attached to Ephraim? Moses attaches Joshua to Ephraim (although Moses knew better but it could not
be revealed at that time) for the same reason that Yahshua the Messiah appeared to be attached to Joseph. However, Luke the
physician, with the Holy Spirit in him after Pentecost, explains that Yahshua the Messiah born of the virgin Mary, was NOT
of Joseph as he writes thusly, “And Yahshua Himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the
son of Joseph” (Luke 3:23). Thus, Yahshua the Messiah appeared to be the son of Joseph, in the same way that Joshua
(Yahshua) the Son of Nun, appeared to be of the lineage of Ephraim out of Joseph, for the purpose of Yahweh carrying out His
will and His way. The Prophets had said that they (the Israelites) would not KNOW the time of their visitation (Jeremiah 8:12;
Isaiah 10:3, Hosea 9:7), that is, that they would not know and recognize that Yahshua the Messiah was the Son of Yahweh (and
not Joseph) so that they would deny Him and crucify Him as was fore ordained.
Messiah told the Jews plainly that He was back there with Abraham and the Patriarchs and Prophets when He said to them, “Your
father Abraham prayed to see my day; and
Page 40 Volume I
he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, thou are not yet fifty
years old, and has thou seen Abraham? Yahshua said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, before Abraham was, I am”
(John 8:56- 58).
So it is that Joshua (who is Yahshua), who was down in Egypt
but he was not known, just as Yahshua the Messiah was not known when He was in the earth plane. Later, when Moses is called
up into Mount Sinai the SECOND TIME ALONE and by himself, it is this same Joshua who was Moses’ minister who went up
into the Mount with Moses (Exodus 24:1-2, l3) and he transfigured before Moses into the Incorporeal Form again (as he was
at the Burning Bush), and Moses sees him in a Vision create the heavens and the earth. This Incorporeal Form was Elohim (Yahshua)
the Archetype (original) Pattern of the Universe, “the faithful and true witness the beginning of the creation of Yahweh”
(Revelation 3:14). Moses further sees Him create the man, Adam, and form the woman, Eve, from his body in the Garden of Eden
(Moses also saw the book that Yahweh-Elohim wrote of all the genealogies of mankind); and He further shows Moses, and tells
him about the Tabernacle that He desires him to build in the Wilderness of Sinai.
Moses had previously told Aaron, Nadab, Abihu and the seventy elders to tarry at the
place where they had seen the vision of the Incorporeal Form of Elohim until he and Joshua returned, but they DISOBEYED, and
returned back down the Mount to the camp of the Israelites and made the Golden Calf. If they had obeyed Moses, they would
not have gotten into the trouble of making the Golden Calf, which displeased Moses so very much that he broke the Tablets
of the Covenant. Nevertheless, this was according to Yahweh’s Will, for He had told Moses to place the Tables of the
Covenant in the Ark of the Covenant, but there was no Ark of the Covenant as Moses had not had time to tell the Israelites
how to build it. There is another correlative instance of such disobedience on the part of Yahshua the Messiah’s disciples
as He told them, after He had resurrected from the grave and had tarried on earth for forty days, to tarry at Jerusalem and
wait for the Promise of the Father (Acts 1:4). These disciples, however, having learned from the Messiah that the Law and
Prophets has to be fulfilled (Luke 24:44-45), they found the passage of scripture in Psalms 109:8, where it speaks of Judas’
fall and that another would take his bishopric. Since, therefore, Yahshua the Messiah had not told them who would take Judas’
place, they took it upon themselves to fill his place by casting lots and the lot fell on Matthias who was numbered with them
(Acts 1:20). This, however, was in direct disobedience to what the Messiah told them to do; He did not tell them to pick or
choose another Apostle. Furthermore, this was against the Purpose and Plan of Yahweh, for the Apostle Paul was the one whom
the Holy Spirit had chosen before the foundation of the world to take Judas’ place.
the end of Moses’ forty days in the Mount, he descends the Mount and it is Joshua who tells him of the noise in the
camp of Israel, and tells Moses to hurry down from the Mount; and when Moses sees that Israel (with Aaron) had made the Golden
Calf in willful disobedience to Yahweh’s commandment which He had spoken to them from the Mount, he became very angry
and threw down the two tablets of the covenant and broke them. Moses then fell down before Joshua who was his minister (just
as Yahshua the Messiah said that He came not to be ministered unto, but to minister - Mark 10:45), and pleaded with Joshua
to forgive Israel for their great sin which they had committed in making the Golden Calf. Moses further said to Joshua “If
thou wilt forgive their sin; and if not, blot me, I pray thee out of thy book which thou has written” (Exodus 32:32-33).
Moses was referring to Yahweh-Elohim whom he had seen and understood in the Mount to be the Source and Substance of all human
flesh, that is, all of the genetic material that would ever be materialized into human flesh was contained in Him, and He
foreknew every living human creature by name before he would be formed in the womb. Remember that He (Yahweh-Elohim) had called
Moses by his name at the Burning Bush, and Moses had seen his own name written in That Book.
John the Revelator made reference to this same book as follows: “And I saw the
dead, small and great, stand before Elohim; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the Book of Life”
(see Rev. 20:12-l5), and we (all human creatures) are books or epistles, as the Apostle Paul wrote, “Ye are our epistles
(books) written in our hearts, known and
I Page 41
read of all men: forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Yahshua
the Messiah ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the Living Elohim; not in tables of stone, but
in the fleshly tables of the heart” (II Corinthians 3:2-3).
Joshua (Yahshua) was a young man (remember that Yahshua the Messiah was only 33 years old when He was crucified)
who dwelt always in the Tent or the Tabernacle of the congregation which Moses pitched without the camp of the Israelites.
Whenever Moses wanted to inquire about some matter that he lacked knowledge of its solution, he went into this Tabernacle
or Tent and received the answer from Joshua (Exodus 33:7-11, Joshua is referred to as the ‘Lord’ in the King James
Because Moses had waxed hot and had
thrown down and broken the First Tables of the Covenant written with the finger of Elohim when he saw that Israel had sinned
in making the Golden Calf, he was told by Joshua to hew out his own tables of stone and come up the THIRD time in Mount Sinai.
He further told Moses that he would write on these tables just as he had written on the first tables of stone. However, when
Moses went into the Mount the THIRD time, Joshua DID NOT GO WITH HIM as he had done the first time (Exodus 24:13; Exodus 33:11)
but he remained in his tent. Moses, therefore entered into the cloud as he had done the SECOND TIME but did not see the face
of Elohim, but did see his back parts as he passed by, and as he wrote on the new tables of stone (Exodus 33:20-23). Although
Joshua remained within his tent when Moses went in the Mount the THIRD TIME, He (Joshua) nevertheless, showed his back parts
to Moses and communicated with Moses, thereby demonstrating his power of astral projection and telepathic communication. It
was at this time when Moses went into the Mount the THIRD TIME that he saw the serpent in the Garden of Eden and the subsequent
disobedience of Adam and Eve and Adam’s expulsion from the Garden. Had Moses seen the transgression of Adam and Eve
when he was in the Mount the SECOND TIME, he would not have waxed hot and broken the first tables of stone when he saw that
Aaron and Israel had transgressed the Commandments of Yahweh in building the Golden Calf. Moses would have known that Israel
would have had no other recource than to repeat in type the sin of his earthly fore-parents in the Garden of Eden.
was also during the THIRD trip into the Mount that Moses saw a repetition of the events that had previously transpired in
his vision at the Burning Bush in the land of Midian. Elohim had told Moses at the Burning Bush to tell Pharaoh that Ayah
Asher Ayah (which means: I will be what I will to be) had sent him to Egypt to liberate the Israelites from bondage; furthermore,
Elohim had demonstrated His power to be what He willed to be, by having Moses cast his rod to the ground and it turned into
a serpent and Moses fled from it. When Moses sees therefore the Serpent in the Garden, the Tree (same as the bush) of Knowledge
of Good and Evil and Adam and Eve, he is seeing a repeat of the same circumstances. He also hears Yahweh-Elohim tell the woman,
Eve, “and I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed (the woman’s seed, which
is Yahshua); he shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel” (Genesis 3:15). This pronouncement is a prophetic
utterance of Yahweh-Elohim setting forth the means by which Yahshua the Messiah was to come the next time (Remember we have
already shown that Joshua, who is Yahshua, did not come into the flesh by woman or a man down in Egypt. The Apostle Paul spoke
of Yahshua the Messiah’s coming by the woman thusly, “For as the woman (Eve) is of the man (Adam), even so is
the man (Yahshua the Messiah) also by the woman” (Miriam or Mary, I Corinthians 11:12). NOTE: Let us here admonish the
reader to hold this thought in mind until we finish the relating of Moses’ THIRD TRIP into the Mount, and then we will
deal with this thought further in relation to Joshua or Yahshua).
Moses also sees in his vision during his third trip into the Mount, the genealogies of the flesh that proceeded out
of Adam and Eve, and he heard and saw Yahweh-Elohim speak to the Patriarchs (although they did not know Him by that name —
only as El Shaddi, meaning the Almighty Provider — Exodus 6:3, H.N.B.). Moses heard and saw all of the events and happenings
of the Ante-diluvian and Post-diluvian Ages unto the coming of Yahshua the Messiah and Pentecost, or in other words, HE saw
the whole Purpose of Yahweh from start to finish, so that he might be one of the witnesses along with John the Revelator.
Moses and John confirming one another, would therefore be as the Two Archangels which overshadowed the Mercy Seat with their
toward the cloud where Yahweh
said He would dwell, and it would not take a college graduate to see that the author of this work would have had to have a
vision that encompassed both Moses’ and John’s in order to explain the things contained herein.
When Moses descended the Mount the THIRD TIME with the Tablets of the Covenant in his hands,
having seen Adam and Eve transgress in the Garden of Eden, he was much more tranquilized in his mind, because he now understood
why Aaron and Israel had previously sinned in building the Golden Calf. He, therefore, placed these tablets in the Ark of
the Covenant which the Israelites had constructed by this time (this Ark represents the head which always develops first in
the womb), whereas the complete Tabernacle was ready until the following year. Also when Moses came down out of the Mount
the THIRD TIME, his face shone and the children of Israel were afraid to come near him, therefore he put a vail over his face
when he talked with them, but when he went into the Tabernacle of the Congregation where Joshua dwelled, he took the vail
off (Exodus 34th chapter). The Apostle Paul states that this vail (the flesh) still remaineth to them who follow after the
things contained under the Mosaic Dispensation, not seeing that Messiah fulfilled all of the carnal and fleshly ordinances.
continued on with Joshua and the Israelites in their migration through the Wilderness of Sinai for a period of 40 years, and
he died and the Israelites mourned his death 30 days and Joshua gave them 3 more days to make preparations, before the Israelites
crossed over the River Jordan into Canaan Land. He was buried in the valley over against Beth-Peor in the Mount, and although
the Bible clearly states that NO MAN knew the place of his burial, Joshua knew, for it was this same Yahshua (the Messiah)
who produced Moses and showed him to Peter, James and John in their vision in Mount Transfiguration (Matthew 17th chapter).
The Devil however, did not know where Moses was buried, and as Jude states it, he (the devil) disputed with Michael, the Archangel
about where the body of Moses was buried, and Michael just said to the Devil, “Yahweh rebuke thee” (Jude 9th verse).
After Moses’ death, Joshua led the Israelites across the Jordan into Canaan Land
and he fought and subdued 31 kingdoms in Canaan Land (also he had already subdued 2 kingdoms on this side of Jordan —
33 in all). Thus, we have shown that Joshua (who was Yahshua) was with the Israelites throughout their whole journey from
Egypt to Canaan Land, but only Moses knew who he was. He was down in Egypt but as the Bible states, Israel saw no similitude
of him (Deuteronomy 4:12); likewise in the Wilderness of Sinai, Joshua stayed in his tent and went not out of it, and only
Moses went in to talk to him, face to face (Exodus 33:11). However, just before his (Joshua’s) death in Canaan Land,
he assembled all of the elders and heads of the Tribes of Israel with the people unto Shechem and he openly and plainly told
them that he was the one who had sent Moses and Aaron into Egypt, and that he was the one who delivered them out of bondage,
and that he was the one who fought their battles all along the way, etc. (Joshua 24th chapter). One would not discern by reading
this 24th chapter of Joshua that Joshua was talking of himself, although he uses the pronoun I throughout, but due to the
fact that the Bible uses the term Lord in reference to Joshua, the real understanding is hidden. This Joshua was the Lord
or the Lord God who had lead Israel all of the way from Egypt to Canaan Land; in other words, he was with them all of the
way (Matthew 28:20). However, throughout all of these battles, Joshua was never killed, but he died at the ripe old age of
110 and was buried in the border of his inheritance in Timnath-serah in Mount Ephraim (Joshua 24:29- 30).
Now, the big $64,000 question is this: if we contend that this Joshua the Son of Nun was Yahshua who was with Moses
throughout his journeying and he died at the age of 110 and was buried in Canaan Land, how did he get out of his grave and
appear many hundreds of years later as Yahshua the Messiah?
We have already related how that Messiah said that He was before Abraham, and Abraham rejoiced to see His day (John
8:56-58), and He further said this, “Therefore, doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take
it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it
again” (John 10:17-18).
He was plainly telling the Jews
of His day that He was the same Joshua who laid His life down in Canaan Land and was buried at the age of 110 years, but that
He had the power to get up out of that grave, and appear again. This is what He meant when He spoke to Mary and Martha and
said, “I am the Resurrection and the Life” (John 11:25). If He had remained in that earthly grave in Canaan Land,
He certainly could not have been the Resurrection and the Life. Now concerning His being born of the Virgin Mary, remember
that He had said to Adam and Eve that He would be the seed of the woman and that He would bruise the Serpent’s head.
Joshua was buried in Timnath-serah; (do you see the similarity of SERAH to SARAH) and it was Sarah who was the mother of Isaac,
the only son born to Abraham by the Promise of the Father Yahweh, and this Isaac was a type of the True Seed who was Yahshua
the Messiah. Therefore, this True Seed had to come forth out of the loins of a woman which was Miriam (or Mary); as He came
forth out of the loins of Miriam, whose body was as the dust of the earth, this was His Resurrection from that grave in Canaan
Land to fulfill His words to Adam and Eve. However, we would not have you be ignorant of the fact that Joshua as an Incorporeal
Spirit was never put in the ground in Canaan Land in the first place, and that this Holy Spirit was continuously with those
that outlived Joshua even on down to this present time. Thus, it is possible for each one of us to see this Resurrected Elohim
or Holy Spirit within the gray and white matter of our brain in a vision, and to know that He lives forevermore, never to
