I am the way

Yahshua said He was the way and light unto the world, what did He mean, what was He teaching?

 

John 14:6  Yahshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 I am the way

 

This quote only appears once in the Bible and is one of the most quotes verse aside from John 3:16 or 15.

John 3:16  For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

 

So now one believes this and comes to Yahshua and asks, Good master, what must I do?

What does He say?

 

Matthew 19:17  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, YHWH: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

John 3:17  For YHWH sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

 

So Yahshua came not to condemn the world, but His light shown on the light which condemned the world.

 

John 3:19  And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

20  For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

21  But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in YHWH.

 

Now what does the Word say that light is..

Proverbs 6:23  For the commandment is a lamp; and the law is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life: {lamp: or, candle}

Isaiah 8:20  To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

Isaiah 51:4  Hearken unto me, my people; and give ear unto me, O my nation: for a law shall proceed from me, and I will make my judgment to rest for a light of the people.

Romans 7:14  For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

 

Psalms 19:7  The law of YHWH is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of YHWH is sure, making wise the simple.

8  The statutes of YHWH are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of YHWH is pure, enlightening the eyes.

9  The fear of YHWH is clean, enduring for ever: the judgments of YHWH are true and righteous altogether.

10  More to be desired are they than gold, yea, than much fine gold: sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb.

11  Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

12  Who can understand his errors? cleanse thou me from secret faults.

13  Keep back thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them not have dominion over me: then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression.

 

 

Deuteronomy 8:6  Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of YHWH thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him.

Deuteronomy 28:9  The LORD shall establish thee an holy people unto himself, as he hath sworn unto thee, if thou shalt keep the commandments of YHWH thy God, and walk in his ways.

 

So if the Lord is establishing a holy people unto himself and one wants to be a part of that people, then you need to come to the light. You must keep the commandments.

 

 

Ephesians 5:8  For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

Ephesians 5:13  But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

Ephesians 5:14  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and the Messiah shall give thee light.

 

the Messiah shall give thee light? How? Here is the light:

 

Matthew 19:17  And he said unto him, Why callest thou me good? there is none good but one, that is, YHWH: but if thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.

 

 

John 12:36  While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Yahshua, and departed, and did hide himself from them.

 

It is interesting that so many say the Yahshua is THE LIGHT but He really says He came a light into the world.

 

 

John 12:46  I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

John 8:12  Then spake Yahshua again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 9:5  As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

 

 

Psalms 27:1  A Psalm of David. The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? YHWH is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

Psalms 36:9  For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.

 

Yahshua was thee light that we can see light.

Ephesians 5:13  But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

 

And His light was that the light was spiritual.

Romans 7:14  For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

 

All that Yahshua taught was the Spiritual side of the commandments, the light.

 

Yahshua then said that we must be Born Again. First we must come to the light and then we must be born again.

 

John 3:1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2  The same came to Yahshua by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from YHWH: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except YHWH be with him.

3  Yahshua answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of YHWH.

4  Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother's womb, and be born?

5  Yahshua answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of YHWH.

 

Romans 7:14  For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin.

 

So you want to be born again. THEN

 

Deuteronomy 10:16  Circumcise therefore the foreskin of your heart, and be no more stiffnecked.

Jeremiah 4:4  Circumcise yourselves to YHWH, and take away the foreskins of your heart, ye men of Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem: lest my fury come forth like fire, and burn that none can quench it, because of the evil of your doings.

Romans 2:29  But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of YHWH.

 

We must die to our old self and old ways, be must arise to a new life of obedience.

 

Isaiah 51:7  Hearken unto me, ye that know righteousness, the people in whose heart is my law; fear ye not the reproach of men, neither be ye afraid of their revilings.

 

We must allow him to write His Law upon our hearts and minds.

 

Jeremiah 31:33  But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel; After those days, saith YHWH, I will put my law in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.

 

Hebrews 8:10  For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people:

Hebrews 10: 14  For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

15  Whereof the Holy Ghost also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before,

16  This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them;

17  And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.

18  Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin.

 

So if Yahshua is truly the WAY, then we had ought to have an ear to hear and an eye to see

John 14:6  Yahshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

 

What did Yahshua really teach so that we may come to the Father, that we may enter into the Kingdom. You will have to decide, but there is only ONE right choice and it has to be made of your own free will.

 

 

Isaiah 5:20  Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

 

Revelation 12:17  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of YHWH, and have the testimony of Yahshua the Messiah.

Revelation 14:12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of YHWH, and the faith of Yahshua.

 

Psalms 119:115  Depart from me, ye evildoers: for I will keep the commandments of my God.

The Conclusion of the Whole Matter

Ecclesiastes 12:13

Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter:

Fear YHWH, and keep his commandments:

for this is the whole duty of man.
