Yeshua Is Coming Sooner Than You Think!

Janice Baca

Many proclaim when Yeshua comes, the battle is over. However, in my studies of the Hebrew Brit Hadashah (New Testament), Yeshua is coming sooner than you think. And Yeshua’s coming is a sign of the battle beginning, not ending. Keep in mind there is a difference between Yeshua “coming” and Yeshua “returning”. It is also important to note that Yeshua is coming to battle with us, but Yehovah is fighting through us. 

Yeshua Continually Coming

Yeshua Coming Sooner Than You Think

 A couple weeks ago the Benai Emunah Gospel Translation Team discussed Yeshua’s coming in 1 Corinthians 15:23.

אדם אדם בדתו ראשית הוא במשיח ובסוף אלו של משיח הם גם כך בבואו
“Adam, a man's (adam) first law/covenant is in Messiah. And in the end, those belonging to Messiah are also the same at his coming” 1 Corinthians 15:231 (emphasis mine)

Notice in 1 Corinthians 15:23 uses the verb בבואו (bĕ bo‘o) a Hebrew infinitive construct with a preposition “ב” (bet) prefix meaning “in”, “with” or “by”. The bet prefix with the infinitive construct verb is an ongoing action of “coming”. If the author used the “כ” (kaf) prefix, it would be an action just performed. In other words, it is not a one-time event! Furthermore, scripture confirms we will see Yeshua coming with our own eyes as described in Zechariah 12:10, Revelation 1:7 as well as in Matthew 24:30b as stated below:

אז יראה אדם סימן בן האלוה בשמים ואז יילילו כל שבטי הארץ ויראו בן הבתולה בא בעבי השמים ברב כח וצלם ודמות
“… And they saw the Son of the Virgin coming* in the clouds of the heavens. With great power, image and likeness” Matt 24:30b1 (emphasis mine)

*Note: The Hebrew participle active verb, “coming” in Matthew 24:30b describes one who is coming.

The 7 Spirits Of Yehovah Revealed

Now consider Isaiah 11:2-5 describing the Spirit of Yehovah that will rest upon the coming Messiah.

“The Spirit of Yehovah shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of Yehovah. His delight is in the fear of Yehovah, and he shall not judge by the sight of his eyes, nor decide by the hearing of his ears; but with righteousness he shall judge the poor and decide with equity for the meek of the earth; he shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of his lips he shall slay the wicked. And righteousness shall be the girdle of his loins, and trustworthiness the girdle of his waist.” Isa 11:2-5

Interestingly, people assume the “Spirit of Yehovah” is the first of the seven Spirits, when in fact, the Spirit of Yehovah encompasses all seven Spirits within him.2 Thus, when counting the seven Spirits of Yehovah (i.e. Spirits of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, Fear of Yehovah), we are left with six spirits, not seven. However, in verses 4 and 5, Isaiah continues with his description of the Spirit of Yehovah by describing one who is just and right-ruling. Now consider, Isaiah 28:6, “and a Spirit of right-ruling to him who sits in right-ruling, and strength to those who turn back the battle at the gate.” Isaiah 11:4-5 appear to describe the same Spirit of right-ruling defined in Isaiah 28:6. Therefore, the Spirit of right-ruling would be counted as the seventh Spirit of Yehovah.

Secondly, Revelation 5:6 says, “And I looked and saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders a Lamb standing, as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of Elohim sent out into all the earth.

Holy Spirit vs Spirit Of Yehovah

Holy Spirit vs Spirit Of Yehovah

It is important to note the Spirit of Yehovah and the Holy Spirit are two separate entities from God. In Joel 2:28, Acts 2:17-18, Yehovah says he will “pour out his Spirit upon all flesh…” (אֶשְׁפּוֹךְ – ‘eshpok) and the seven Spirits of Yehovah are named in Isaiah 11:2-5, 28:6 and is resting upon the Messiah. The seven Spirits of Yehovah are also sent נשלח (nishlach) into all the earth in Revelation 5:6. Both Spirits are Yehovah and appears to be two different manifestations of the same God (Elohim).

Keep in mind, the Holy Spirit is not a third person of Yehovah but is Yehovah. Consider Leviticus 24:16 an Israeli woman’s son blasphemed and cursed the name of Yehovah, and his punishment was death by stoning. Furthermore, Yehovah continued by saying that any native or stranger who does the same would suffer the same consequences. That is why it is an unpardonable sin to blaspheme and curse the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit is Yehovah as defined in 2 Corinthians 3:17, John 14:8-11; 15:26.

Yeshua Coming Soon!

Yeshua Coming Sooner Than You Think

Lastly, the battle is beginning, and we are not alone —Yeshua is coming sooner than you think! No doubt, all eyes will see him in the clouds at the end when he chooses to reveal himself physically. However, Yeshua comes in the Spirit of Yehovah to stand and battle with us and we will also have the Holy Spirit, Yehovah within us!

Undoubtably, the Holy Spirit will manifest through us with signs and wonders. But how the Spirit of Yehovah resting upon Yeshua will manifest is a mystery. Perhaps as the Spirit of Might as it did on Sampson (Judges 14:6,19, 15:14)? Or perhaps, the Spirit of Wisdom as it appeared on Solomon (1 Kings 3:7-17)? These are assumptions, of course. But it is clear, Yeshua is continually coming and will be with us in the Spirit of Yehovah. Be encouraged brothers and sisters, we are not fighting this war alone!

10 responses to “Yeshua Is Coming Sooner Than You Think!”

  1. Matthew says:

    Growing up, I have thought of the spirit as some ethereal, invisible ghostly thing – a disembodied being. But 1 Corinthians 15:35 – 49 corrected my thinking: it is a kind of body itself, and it is the fullness of our existence – much fuller than our present bodies, if you can imagine that. So, then, the spirits of Yehovah are the body of wisdom, the body of understanding, the body of counsel, the body of might, the body of knowledge, and the body of fear. But the other way of reading it, is that the Spirit of Yehovah is the fullness of wisdom, the fullness of understanding, counsel, might, knowledge, and fear. They are the complete aggregation of all that is within those things. And they are LIVING!!

    What a powerful mystery, Janice, and what a blessing to read!

  2. Janice Baca says:

    Wow, Matthew! What a beautiful way to look at the Spirit of Yehovah! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

  3. Linda Gulbrandson says:

    Thank you so much for the studies. I look forward to more of what promises to be a very important support to many. It’s a relief to know what the Hebrew says.
    Please would you clarify whether John was originally written in Hebrew or Greek. The division of the texts into Hebrew or Greek origin (Hebrew Gospels on the website) has John listed for both – # 1 and 2. It looks as if #1 may refer to Hebrew origin for 1, 2, 3 John and #2 refers to the Gospel of John being of Greek origin but I can’t be sure.
    Fancy only one and a half of the Gospels having a Hebrew language origin.
    Thankyou, Linda

      Shalom, Linda. Thank you for your question. The information you are searching can be found in Dr. Jones’ book, Sons of Zion versus Sons of Greece, pp. 232-282. Dr. Jones says the Gospel of John is the most “Hebrew Negative” of all the gospels (pp. 233). However, what I found most interesting is the assertion that the Gospel of John may not have been written by John at all (pp. 245-249). I found that information thought provoking, but it wasn’t until my team completed the translation of the book of Revelation and then started translating the Gospel of John that I really took notice.

      As you can imagine, Revelation can be a challenge to translate at times because of the dark imagery. But interestingly, the Gospel of John is more difficult to translate than Revelation! Why? The grammar structure is different and complex! And, in my personal opinion, it doesn’t appear to be the same author!

      If you have a specific verse or two you want me to analyze, I will be glad to do so. I haven’t done an analysis of 1 John, 2 John, or 3 John yet. And I am still analyzing the Gospel of John. I can post my findings in a future blog post.

  4. Linda says:

    Thankyou Janice,
    Your reply is most interesting. I have Dr Jones’ books so will check the references.
    I thought the video teachings you have done, are excellent – clear and logical, and it’s always exciting to find out what the Hebrew says.
    Shalom to you too.

  5. Andrea Tokessy says:

    Hi Janice, have you begun reading and translating the book of Hebrews? Specifically I’m interested in chapter 7 through 9 for teaching that I will be doing. Thank you for receiving my off topic request and your reply.

    • Janice Baca says:

      Shalom, Andrea! We haven’t started translating Hebrews yet. Do you have a specific verse or two that you are particularly interested in? Perhaps I can investigate those verses. Also, watch for our blog posts. We have interesting information coming soon!

  6. JONATHAN MEYER says:

    So much here!
    I always wondered if the Spirit of Yehovah the 1st (or 7th) spirit was “Love”. But after reading this, it makes sense the Spirit of Yehovah is righteous judgment. Yehovah doesn’t even trust His Sons in the heavenly council – Ps 82:1-2

    So, you’re saying the Spirit of Yehovah is Yehovah. And the 6 other spirits are the Holy Spirit? Do I have this right?

    • Janice Baca says:

      Shalom, Jonathan! Yes, the Spirit of Yehovah is Yehovah and rests upon Yeshua. However, the Spirit of Yehovah encompasses the Spirit of Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, Fear of Yehovah and the Spirit of Right-Ruling.

      Now read 2 Cor 3:17, “Now Yehovah is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of יהוה is, there is freedom.”

      Clearly, the Holy Spirit is Yehovah. This is the reason why it is an unpardonable sin to blaspheme the Holy Spirit. Thank you for your questions.
