When attempting to uncover the meaning of the term "Messiah", the Hebrew for the Greek equivalent of "Christ", many look up Messiah or Christ in a dictionary for the meaning and revelation and come to the conclusion that it simply means "The Anointed or the Anointing". Therefore the assumption that many conclude as truth is that Christ or Messiah is a natural ordinary human being with a natural human nature that was Anointed or had the Anointing of God upon him qualifying him to be the Messiah or the Christ. To the Jew, Messiah is God who will manifest Himself to the world as the conquering King.  

 

 To the Jew, Messiah is the LORD Jehovah that would come to earth as the everlasting, immortal, incorruptible man known as "ha'Mashiach Ben-David" or "Messiah, Son of David", since he will reign gloriously in the Kingdom of God forever, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. Ha'Machiach Ben-David will restore the kingdom to Israel with all her enemies being destroyed and under her domain. Ha'Machiach Ben-David cannot die for he is Messiah, God Himself manifested in a glorified body. Thus this Messiah cannot die nor be killed since He is the LORD Jehovah Himself manifested in a glorified body. This is Jesus Christ after his resurrection and glorification as the spiritual man.  However, "Ha'Mashiach Ben-Yosef" or "Messiah, Son of Joseph" is the title of Messiah that will suffer like Joseph, be rejected of his brethren, and be delivered up to death. This is Jesus Christ as a mortal human being of flesh and blood like us who had the Spirit of God resident in him before glorification. The problem some Jewish people have is that they do not understand how Messiah on the one hand can be eternal and yet on the other hand suffer unto death. There are over three hundred prophecies in the Word of God concerning the Messiah that should come into the world. We will only discuss a select few.

 

Isaiah mentioned Messiah as a son born as a child. "For unto us a child is born, and unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder."  (Isaiah 9:6a). This is not the government of men, but the government of God as the progressive theme of the "seed of the woman" that will destroy Satan and his kingdom. We realize by His name that this is not an ordinary prophet, king, or priest that should come into the world, but Messiah Himself who is none other than God, the LORD Jehovah who would come in human flesh and blood as an Adam.

 

"and his name shall be called Wonderful". (Isaiah 9:6b). "Wonderful" is from the Greek "pele" meaning "a miracle, extraordinary, something incomprehensible to man" and is used when describing something that is divine. Messiah will be more than an ordinary natural man as a king, but will be divine as God come in flesh by a miracle or an extraordinary event incomprehensible to mere human thought or intelligence. Wonderful is a title used of God as He that would come into the world as a child that is born and the son that is given referring to Jehovah coming in flesh and blood as a human being.

 

"Counsellor" (Isaiah 9:6c). "Counsellor" is from the Hebrew "ya'ats" meaning "king". By Counsellor being used in association with Wonderful, the phrase literally translates as "a Wonder of a Counsellor". Counsellor refers to God and does not pertain to a mere mortal man. Literally "Messiah will be the King Divine", or "God will be King Divine".

 

"The mighty God" (Isaiah 9:6d). The term "The mighty God" or Hebrew "El Gibbowr" has the obvious meaning of Messiah being God in Spirit. Messiah is through and through, God in Spirit. "El" is the name of God pointing to Messiah's power and strength executing judgment upon the nations. No man has the power to execute divine judgment upon the earth but God Himself. The Father judgeth no man but has given all judgment to the Son of man. The Son of man is the judgment office of the Spirit since God came in flesh as a man, died, and rose again for our justification. Therefore, the glorified Son of man as God manifested in a body of glorified flesh will execute judgment upon the world. 

 

"The everlasting Father" (Isaiah 9:6e). Obviously, this is the Person of Messiah as "the everlasting Father" in a body of flesh and blood as a man. Remember that we are expressly referring to the child that is born, and the son that is given; that is, the flesh and blood body as a human being expressing God's Person. "The everlasting Father", the Hebrew "Avi-ad" has a literal interpretation meaning "The Father of Eternity, From Everlasting to Everlasting" as the One that possesses Eternity, not the One who has eternity. Eternity belongs to Jesus the Messiah (Christ), not Jesus Messiah (Christ) belongs to eternity. Eternity, not defined as, or subject to time, as a specified period of past, present, and future reality; but, Eternity being the absolute tangible man of Jesus the Messiah (Christ). This is only accomplished by Jesus giving to us His divine nature through the Spirit who is eternal. Jesus Christ (Messiah) IS eternity.

 

"The Prince of Peace" (Isaiah 9:6f). "The Prince of Peace" refers to Messiah in the priestly order of "Melchezedek", "the King of Peace". Messiah is the spiritual man Melchezedek documenting the heavenly priesthood of Jesus the Messiah, not of the earthly priesthood of Levi of Aaron. "The Prince of Peace" is brought only by the "King of Peace" which is the "King of Righteousness", Jesus the Messiah who is Melchezedek, the spiritual man by resurrection and glorification with death having no more dominion over him. Therefore, He has an unchangeable priesthood after the order of Melchezedek.  

 

Messiah's will be the New Testament or New Covenant. "I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant to the people, for a light of the Gentiles." (Isaiah 42:6). "...This cup is the new testament in my blood." (1 Corinthians 11:25b). The blood of Messiah (God come in flesh and blood) is the New Testament. Suppose ye that this blood is that of a sinful man, or is this blood the blood of the sinless, spotless, harmless, holy Lamb of God? Do you discern the blood of God Himself as Messiah, God manifested in flesh. "Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace?" (Hebrews 10:29).  If you deem Messiah to be just an ordinary man who knew sin as all in Adam have committed, then you have done despite unto the Spirit, the Lord God Himself, not deeming the blood of God to be holy; that is, the sinless, spotless blood of the Lamb of God.

 

Messiah, though He is God, will die for the sins of the world in the body of His human flesh shedding His own sinless, spotless, and holy blood. He will die as "ha'Masiach ben Yoseph" or the suffering Messiah before resurrection and glorification as God manifested in flesh as a man. The man Christ Jesus will die as the Lamb of God to take away the sin of the world. The Messiah ("ha'Mashiach Ben-David" or "Messiah, Son of David") is Messiah after his resurrection and glorification who is an incorruptible, immortal, eternal man. "Ha'Machiach Ben-David" is the spiritual man Christ Jesus after His glorification, death having no more dominion over him. The pre-glorification Messiah is is "Ha'Mashiach Ben-Yosef", or "Messiah, Son of Joseph" as God manifested in human flesh and blood for the suffering of death for the sin of the world. Same Messiah, different offices; one "pre" and one "post" glorification. However, Messiah will not die because of His sin, but will die because of our sin and iniquity by death being placed upon Him, Jesus being made sin who knew no sin, being made a curse upon the tree. The Messiah will come twice. He has already come the first time for the suffering of death in order that we may have life as "ha'Masiach Ben-Yoseph. The second time He will appear as "ha'Masiach Ben-David" without sin unto salvation when all things are subdued under his feet by the church. Glory to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Messiah, both "Ha'Mashiach Ben-Yosef", or "Messiah, Son of Joseph" and  "Ha'Mashicah Ben David" or "Messiah, Son of David", the Messiah before and after glorification.

 

Jesus born of the virgin Mary is the "ha'Masiach ben Yoseph" or the suffering Messiah. That same Jesus who was crucified, God hath made that same Jesus who you crucified both Lord and Christ ("ha'Mashiach ben David" or the glorified Messiah as the spiritual man, the Melchezedek. Jesus as the firstbegotten from the dead is our Firstfruits as the Federal Head of the God race or God family. These are only a few things about Messiah for our admonition.
