Can a Person Be Saved
and Not Believe in the
Deity of Messiah?

by Deborah Peterson


Though my initial reaction to this question was to be hesitant - to say that someone can't have been (or remain) saved if they come to deny Yah'shua (Jesus) being truly Elohim (God) who became truly human (flesh) - the more I think about it, the more I cannot see how this cannot be a salvational issue that would mean a person losing their salvation if they do not repent.

It means the believer is forced to come to a point to deny Scripture.

John said :

    "In the beginning was the Davar (Word), and the Davar (Word) was with Elohim (God), and Davar (Word) was Elohim (God). He was in the beginning with Elohim (God). All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was chayim (life), and the chayim (life) was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

    "There was a man sent from Elohim (God), whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.

    "The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, yet the world did not know Him. He came to his own, and His own people did not receive him. But to all who did receive Him, who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of Elohim (God), who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of Elohim (God).

    "And the Davar (Word) became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and emet (truth). (John bore witness about him, and cried out, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.''*) For from His fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the Torah (Law) was given through Moses; grace and emet (truth) came through Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ). No one has ever seen Elohim (God); the only Elohim (God), who is at the Father's side, he has made Him known" (John 1:1-18, ESV).

We see the Davar (Word) John is refering to isn't simply an abstract concept, but a person - Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ). The Davar (Word) John was speaking of was not a abstract concept, but a person - the person of Yah'shua Messiah (Jesus Christ). Yah'shua (Jesus) is the Davar (Word) that was with Elohim (God) the Father, and was truly also Elohim (God). It is He through which everything as created (Acts 3:15; Col.1:16; Heb.1:2; Rev 4:11), who was not received by His own people and creation. It was Yah'shua (Jesus) who John the Baptist bore witness of and said was greater than Him (John 1:30) - not a teaching or theology.

    "[Yah'shua/Jesus], being in very nature Elohim (God), did not consider equality with Elohim (God) something to be used to his own advantage" (Phil.2:6, NIV).

Even the Pharisees of the time understood that He was claiming to be Elohim (God), when He identified himself as the Son of Elohim (God):

    "The Jews answered him, 'It is not for a good work that we are going to stone you but for blasphemy, because you, being a man, make yourself Elohim (God)'" (John 10:33).
