Isaiah 11: 1-5—“Then a shoot will spring from the stem of Jesse, and a branch from his roots will bear fruit. The Spirit of Yahweh will rest on Him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and strength, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of Yahweh. And He will delight in the fear of Yahweh, and He will not judge by what His eyes see, nor make a decision by what His ears hear; but with righteousness He will judge the poor, and decide with fairness for the afflicted of the earth; and He will strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, and with the breath of His lips He will slay the wicked. Also righteousness will be the belt about His loins, and faithfulness the belt about His waist.”

“For here we are not afraid to follow the truth wherever it may lead, nor to tolerate any error so long as reason is left free to combat it.” (Thomas Jefferson)

SnyderTalk® Commentary:

Currently, I am putting up bite sized pieces of His Name is Yahweh in SnyderTalk Commentary.  If you haven’t read it, it will be a treat for you.  If you have read it, you will probably enjoy reading it again.  Don’t hesitate to share it with your friends.  You can download the entire manuscript for free at His Name is Yahweh, or you can buy it in Kindle format from Amazon for just $5.

I have left out several footnotes.  Please go to the website His Name is Yahweh and download the manuscript.  It has all the footnotes, and it’s free.

The Messiah is Called “Mighty God” and “Eternal Father”

Before we leave this topic, consider two additional passages of Scripture to support the argument that the Messiah and Yahweh are One.  First, take another look at Isaiah 9: 6-7—“For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His Name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.  There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore.  The zeal of Yahweh Sabaoth will accomplish this.”

The Child referred to in this passage is the Messiah, and two of His Names are “Mighty God” and “Eternal Father.”  Now ask yourself this question.  What Person mentioned in the Bible did Yahweh ever refer to as “Mighty God” or “Eternal Father?”  The answer is only One Person—Himself.  Therefore, the Messiah is Yahweh!

Second, look at Jeremiah 23: 5-6.  I referred to this passage of Scripture before, but I need to do it again here: “Behold, the days are coming, declares Yahweh, when I shall raise up for David a righteous Branch; and He will reign as king and act wisely and do justice and righteousness in the land.  In His days Judah will be saved, and Israel will dwell securely; and this is His Name by which He will be called, Yahweh our Righteousness.”

David’s righteous Branch is the Messiah, and His Name is Yahweh Tsidkenu—or Yahweh our Righteousness.  The Midrash accepts this fact without reservation or qualification: “What is the name of the King Messiah?  Rabbi Abba, son of Kahana, said: Jehovah (Yahweh); for it is written, ‘This is his name whereby he shall be called, the Lord our Righteousness.’” (Midrash on Lamentations 1: 16)

If you still have doubts about whether the Messiah is Yahweh, you need to remember what Yahweh’s Word says about Abraham: “Then he (Abraham) believed in Yahweh; and He reckoned it to him as righteousness.” (Genesis 15: 6)

God’s ways are not our ways, and His thoughts are not our thoughts.  As high as the heavens are above the earth, so are His ways higher than our ways and His thoughts higher than our thoughts.  We must simply have faith in Yahweh and believe His Word.  His Word is incredibly clear.  The Messiah is Yahweh.  They are One!

SCIENCE EDITORIAL #10-2010 (April 3, 2010)

By S. Fred Singer, President, Science and Environmental Policy Project

ClimateGate Whitewash

There is now a desperate effort afoot by assorted climate alarmists to explain away the revelations of the incriminating e-mails leaked last year from the University of East Anglia (UAE).  But the ongoing investigations so far have avoided the real problem, namely whether the reported warming is genuine or simply the manufactured result of manipulation of temperature data by scientists in England and the United States.

The latest report is by the British House of Commons’ Science and Technology Committee, which largely absolved Philip Jones, head of UEA’s Climate Research Unit and author of most of the e-mails.  How can we tell that it’s a whitewash?  Here are some telltale signs:

  • It refers to the e-mails as “stolen”.
  • It did not take direct testimony from scientifically competent skeptics.
  • Yet it derives the conclusion that there is nothing wrong with the basic science and that warming is human caused—essentially endorsing the IPCC.

None of the investigations have gone into any detail on how the data might have been manipulated.  But this is really the most important task for any investigation, since it deals directly with the central issue: Is there an appreciable human influence on climate change in the past decades?

Instead, much of the attention of newspapers, and of the public, has focused on secondary issues: the melting of Himalayan glaciers, the possible inundation of the Netherlands, deforestation of the Amazon, crop failures in Africa, etc.  While these issues demonstrate the sloppiness of the IPCC process, they don’t tell anything about the cause of the warming: natural or anthropogenic.

So what do the e-mails really reveal?  We know that Jones and his gang tried and largely succeeded in “hiding the decline” of temperature by using what he termed “Mike’s [Mann] Nature trick.”  Most people think it refers to CRU tree ring data after 1960, which do show a decline in temperature.  However, I believe that it refers to Michael Mann’s “trick” in hiding the fact that his multi-proxy data did not show the expected warming after 1979.  So he abruptly cut off his analysis in 1979 and simply inserted the thermometer data supplied by Jones, which do claim a strong temperature increase.  Hence the hockey-stick, suggesting a sudden major warming during the past century.

Only a through scientific investigation will be able to document that there was no strong warming after 1979, that the instrumented warming record is based on data manipulation, involving the selection of certain weather stations, [and the de-selection of others that showed no warming], plus applying insufficient corrections for local heating.
