YahuSha & His people are the olive tree

and the light of the world

- What Object did the Messiah Was Impaled ON? -

In my early childhood time, I always thought the Messiah who I was taught about this name “Jesus” had died for us on a T-Shape cross. Nails to hang on this mysterious wood-cross for our sin. Not until in my late 30's, I've discovered HIS great deal name and how he was NOT nails to a Roman upright T-Cross and even one upright straight stake. Because something bother me about the green tree I doubts a few time that he may was impaled or hang on this regular tree. Because I've found a few passages in the Bible that had spoke of this word “tree” which I thought was a symbolic for a wood-beam. Finally in 

my early 40's, I did find numeral of supporting evidence that he did died on this green living tree. This is where I will explain to you why I change my mind about the one upright stake wood-beam. This including also for the T-Cross.

What got me stuck in my head for a few year after believing in this one upright stake wood-beam instead of the T-Cross shape. Because I did see few passage in the Bible spoke of a tree. Where I did not possibly believe he was hang on this living tree but a wood-beam he was carry on his shoulder(s) was the object proof. Until one day all that change by this one world "OLIVE". This one world OLIVE got my attention after discovery about the Almond tree I found online by a writer who believe Messiah was impaled on this kind of wood-beam upright stake. After I did the research to check if this was true, it turn out it was not. While doing that research, I looked up and tried about the olive tree. I remember through out the Bible mentioned numeral of time about this olive oil. It turned out that there were numerical of evidence, strong possible passages fit that the Messiah was hang on this tree. I than start focusing on about this wood-beam the Messiah and the two criminals carry on their shoulder(s). Because I was thinking why were they carry this wood-beam if they weren't hang on this wood-beam stake but one tree? It not possible for all of them with their own wood-beam to be hang on one tree. This was what I was thinking, why not a Romans soldiers just impaled them to the tree instead of their own wood-beam? It took me almost a month to realized they were impaled on their own wood-beam and than together they were hang on this one big tree. 

I have some experience dealing with wood. I used to split wood with this heavy axes. It was my chore chopping wood and pile it up for the winter. For the wood-stove to keep the house warm. I remember carry a tree trunk that were cut on both end. Carry it on my shoulder would weight about 75 to 100 pound. I know how it feel to carry such heavy trunk of wooden tree on my shoulder. I know there are type of different tree that can weight differently, when it measure the same by length and width.


 

What got me a lot of thinking about was these men, the two criminal and Messiah all were carry this wood-beam on their shoulders. I discovered that they were not carrying on both of their shoulders but one according to Isaiah 9:4-6, 10:27 and one supporting; Job 31:36. I also learned that the two criminals were lead/follow by the Messiah according to Matthew 10:24-26, 11:28-30 & Luke 23:31-33. I notice nowhere in the Bible state that they were dragging this wood-beam but carry only. Yet, I understand that the Messiah got a helper to carry his wood-beam after a solider order one man to help him (Matthew 27:32). Because he was so beaten all over his body and bleeding. He lost all his energy to used the muscles to carry it. Not one word ever in the Bible mentioned that he or his helper were dragging this long beam of wood. Thinking that this wood-beam they all were all carrying on their shoulder gonna be at lest 6 ft or more. Possible they were carrying about 50 to 75 pound wood-beam. Knowing that it is easier to carry on one shoulder instead of two. Thinking that it impossible for a person to drag a 12ft log of wood-beam which could weight between 100 to 500 lbs without a support to push, pull or carry? Unlike a T-Cross wood-beam do have a support but, it's still impossible. Because it could weight twice more.


 

Some believe they were only nails and hang on this one wood-beam stake. How this wood-beam stake had to upright it into the ground. On the other hand, some believe that they did carry this 6ft wood-beam on their shoulder(s) and than they were nails on both of their hands near by the end of the wood-beam. After that, the solders put up the body with this wood-beam on another wood stake that is upright from the ground. This would make it as the Romans T shape cross. The theory about the one upright straight stake from the ground seem impossible. If anyone believe they carry a 12ft log of wood-beam on their shoulder, this would created a stake at about 6 to 9ft from the ground. Meaning, the remainder of the stake wood-beam were place in the ground dig hole. That does not look like they were hang up high from the ground??? The T shape cross theory on the other hand is kind of a lot of work the Romans soldiers had to get it done. It's strongly logic that the Romans soldiers did not want to waste time and money to build a T-Shape cross for criminals. They would have to used a lot muscle to push up the wood-beam a long with the body and than nails or ties up together, the horizon beam to the upright beam? This would weight over about 200lbs??? Especially when the Messiah was judge to be punishment penalty death right away, how did the Roman soldiers get the upright stake made and ready for him on the very same day? That where I wasn't sure any of this were true anymore, because of how I've discovered about the tree and olive through out the Bible passages.


 

When I found and read a document article about the Almond tree online, this got me curious to recheck about it and look for olive tree instead. Let look in Luke 23:31-33.

 

 

“If they do this to the green tree, what is going to be done to the dry tree? And two others also, evil-doers, were led with Him to be put to death. And when they had come to the place called Golgotha, they impaled Him there and the evil-doers, one on the right and the other on the left."

 

 

So this is where I want to start showing evidence why the Messiah and the other two guys just maybe was impaled on a wood-beam and than hang on a living green tree. In stead of nails to a Romans T-Cross or hang on one upright stake. According to Luke chapter 23:31=33, I see about four supporting facts why they were on this green tree. Notice there is only ONE tree (other version Bible say CROSS). Number two, the tree is GREEN as the sign of a living tree. Third, there are two evil-doers who were led WITH the Messiah to a place called Golgotha. At last the fourth, two evil-doers were impaled there, one on the right and the other on the left.


 

Now the question is, where the hack is this place called Golgotha??? Some believe this Messiah who died, died somewhere on the hill of Mt. Olive. While other believe it was Mt. Moriah? But this word Golgotha is a Aramaic word for "skull”. It may be surprising a place of the skull can also be called CALVARY, because the Latin word for Calva mean "bald head”. That is why sometime people say "THE RODE TO THE CALVARY" is the right way of saying base on location where hanging upright thing are. What people don't realized that this place called Golgotha somewhere on the hill of Jerusalem site is Mt. Moriah. Not on Mt. Olive which some believe in that. I will explain soon why Messiah and the two robbers were hang on the tree somewhere on Mt. Moriah. Do not fall in the idea about a skull head shaped of a hill or mount that look like a skull face. I believe they were brought for capital punishment to death as the sign of where human are put to death. The same symbolic idea we know in our modern day skull face and two X mark cross bone is a sign of death.

So, where is this place of death (Golgotha) located in Jerusalem? Look at the map photo showing the city of Jerusalem and where we can see a temple. This map show where the temple sitting is on Mt. Moriah. YEAP, Mt. Moriah. According to another map at the end of this documents. We can locate this placed called Golgotha on the north-west corner side from where we can see the temple show us. Notice, Mt. Olive is on the east side from the temple. The exact location of Golgotha which I am sharing by this photo may NOT consider 100%. It may not be exact spot but I am 100% so sure it is somewhere on Mt. Moriah. Here is another photo of a map of Jerusalem with out a city and temple. 

Now let remember about Issac, the son of Abraham who nearly sacrifice his own son at Mt. Moriah according to Genesis chapter 22. Or a lesson we also should know about King David who he was being punishment. Because he had made an unwise decision to take a census of his troops which offended the Almighty ONE. This cause to bring judgment to pay the price for his wrongdoing on Mt. Moriah (1st Chon 21:15-31)? What about King Solomon who build the temple on Mt. Moriah where the scarification can be done near by? All this place happen on Mt. Moriah.


 

Let look in a little about this temple according to 1st Kings chapter 6. There is a entrance which lead to the main room. An rectangular doorframe made of olive wood. YEAP, that right olive wood. This is my first clue leading me to the olive tree. The reason I've also point out this, is because this rectangular doorframe is also like a "Chief Cornerstone". Just like how the Chief Cornerstone in 1st Peter 2:4-8 describe as our Messiah. There is also another supporting fact why this give me more clue. It may be possible the story about the lamb's blood which was put on the two doorposts during the Passover were made of olive wood too? However, nowhere in the bible dose it say this doorframe where the israelites live in a house were made of olive wood. The reason I was thinking that way is because of what the book say in Psalm 52:8.

"I am like a green olive tree In the House of Elohim”


 

WOW! This is I believe our Master was sacrifice somewhere on this Mt. Moriah. Just like how and where Abraham's son Issac was nearly sacrifice too. Now let look into a book called John, chapter 19, verses 31 to 33:

 

"It was the Preparation Day, and the Judeans did not want the BODIES [PLURAL] to be remain on the STAKE [STAUROS -- SINGULAR] on Shabbat [weekly Sabbath], since it was an especially important Shabbat [Nisan 15]. So they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the BODIES [PLURAL] removed. The soldiers came and broke the legs of the FIRST MAN [one of the criminals] then the legs of the OTHER ONE; but WHEN THEY GOT TO YahuSha and saw that he was already dead, they didn't break his legs".

 

Now, the question is, how many body and an object thing they were on it? I only see one stake (or cross) and more than one body were on it. Three bodies were on one object thing, whether it said stake, cross or a tree. Did you catch that? Just like how we already read in Luke chapter 23.

 

Please take another look again at these photo(s) map of Jerusalem, it is very possible that our Master, the Messiah name YahuSha and other two men were taken to this place called Golgotha somewhere north-west from the temple. Where it is also located near the gate according to Hebrews 13:12 "And so Jesus also suffered outside the city gate to make the people holy through his own blood”. However, he may suffered not while he was hang but how he was beaten by the soldiers before being hang? The facts is, before or after being hang, he was still on surrounding area of Mt. Moriah anyway. According to the map, it seem to me that there were two near by city gate where Golgotha is locate. Just maybe one of these gate were probably very close where YahuSha beaten to suffered or being hang on tree there.

 

According to Galatians 3:13 the apostle Paul makes the following statement when referring to the Messiah’s crucifixion: Cursed is everyone who is hung on a TREE. This, we will find, is a direct reference to Deuteronomy 21:22-23, which says – "When someone is convicted of a capital offense and is executed, and you hang him on a TREE, his body shall not remain all night on the tree, but you shall indeed bury him that same day. For anyone who is hanged is under YAH's curse; you must not defile your land which the Master your Creator ONE is giving to you as an inheritance"

 

These two passages give me another clue, a better picture how the soldier were able to chop off the robbers' legs from the tree truck beam instead of the upright wood beam stake which may not hold up well and hard as the living tree.

 

 

Some more interesting passages and facts:

 

Back to Luke 23:31, about this "green Tree", which was written or read in English by the Greek New Testament book, the word "TREE" which was translated from Greek is XULON. While the Greek word UGROS according to Strong's #5200, translated as "Green" which literally mean "FULL OF SAP". WOW, FULL of SAP sound like a olive tree to me here. The next step I like for us to read is Jeremiah 11:16-17.

 

“YAHUAH has named you, ‘Green Olive Tree, Fair, of Goodly Fruit.’ With the noise of a great sound He has set it on fire and its branches shall be broken And YAHUAH of hosts, who planted you...”

 

 

Noticed this passage speak of Israelite as "an olive tree, fair, of goodly fruit" because they shed light on all. We know that Olive trees and this abundance of oil we can produce were significant in the lives of the people through out the Bible. Knowledge of this beautiful olive tree and its uses can enrich our understanding of who is our heavenly Father and HIS people. This lead me the understanding why YahuSha, the Mesiah is the vine and those who follow him are the branches (John 15:5), olive tree can fit into this whole passages. Plus how our Master is the "light of the world" and HIS people can be too. Example in EXODUS 27:20 "...you are to command the children of Yisra’ĕl to bring you clear oil of pressed olives for the light, to cause the lamp to burn continually." WOW!

 

No wonder why these two olive trees which explained in Zechariah 4:11 & Revelation 11:4 are the Yahudah & Yisrael who Amlighty ONE's children are. We also should read Romans 11:11-24, as this one is the most beautiful picture of the Creator's people and the Messiah who are the olive tree. Even the symbolic ten olive bridesmaids parable fit in all this as well (Matthew chapter 25).

 

The next step I have discovered is so amazing of how heavenly Father have me learned and realized this tree of knowledge of good and evil MAY BE very possibly the olive tree. Because of how the book of Numbers chapter 6, verses 1 to 3 describe about the forbidden drink.

 

 

"And YAHUAH spoke to Mosheh, say “Speak to the children of Yisra’ĕl and say to them, ‘When a man or woman does separate, by making a vow of a Natsarene (Nazirite), to be separate to YAHUAH, he separates himself from wine and strong drink – he drinks neither vinegar of wine nor vinegar of strong drink, neither does he drink any grape juice, nor eat grapes or raisins (dried)."

 

 

Two or three words in these verses got me to recognize more clues of evidence. Natsarene, vinegar of wine and vinegar of strong drink are the three I want to point out and explain. We must look in more about the drink. We need to look up more about this word vinegar of that wine and vinegar of that strong drink and than find out where does it come from. Let look in about the wine first, we must understand that this word wine come from a Latin word vinum. This wine is an alcoholic beverage made from any kind of fig plant, which can generally fermented without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients. However, we must also understand that scriptural books do not often speak of wine as alcoholic beverage but nonalcoholic beverage as well.

The next thing we also need to understand about vinegar, vinegar is a sour-tasting liquid containing acetic acid, obtained by fermenting dilute alcoholic liquids, typically wine, cider, or even a beer, and used as a condiment or for pickling. According to dictionary, vinegar was used since the middle age English: from Old French vyn egre, based on Latin word vinum also, the ‘wine’ + acer ‘sour.’ Don't get confuse with the word wine as only vitis vinifera, the common blood color grape juice that can turn into alcohol wine. Since wine does not only mean the white or purple grape fruit juice or even an alcohol. Fig plant (or tree) of the genus ficus, have about 850 species of woody trees, shrubs, vines, epiphytes and hemiepiphytes in the family Moraceae in the world. It can be a bush or small nor big size tree, from 1 m (3 feet) to 10 to 12 m (33 to 39 feet) high, with broad, rough, deciduous leaves that are deeply lobed or sometimes nearly entire.

 

The reason I have point out this word vinegar or wine, we now know what and where it come from is my understanding that this Olive tree can fit this. I've learned that Olive tree is also a vine plant of fig tree.

 

Now, look in the book of Genesis chapter 3, verse 17-18:

 

“Because you have listened to the voice of your wife and have eaten of the tree of which I commanded you, saying, ‘Do not eat of it’: Cursed is the ground because of you, in toil you are to eat of it all the days of your life, and the ground shall bring forth thorns and thistles for you and you shall eat the plants of the field.”

 

 

Noticed the two words, thorns and thistles? This passage brought me about the Olive tree which does have a thorns and it grow to thistle it too. I have the reason to believe this Olive tree is possible the forbidden fig tree of knowledge of good and evil. I believe YahuSha sacrifice his life on this tree for us to break the barrier of the evil spirit which hold us by Satanic blood control. This is why the scriptural book of Genesis speak of for us not to eat the blood in verse 9:4 (or Leviticus 17:12). Explain the reason why it is forbidden to eat or drink of it. Let me also explain how all this fit to Satanic's blood control. Look in Luke chapter 24, verse 39:

 

"See My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.”

 

 

The reason we're guide to this passage verse is to understand about the resurrection body that has no flesh and bones in the circulatory system of YahuSha's body. I believe this red kind of blood is no longer in his system. Here why. According to 1st Corinthians 15:50-51, we will notice the secret in this passage which explain there will be no BLOOD inherit in YAH's world:

 

 

"And this I say, brothers, that flesh and blood is unable to inherit the reign of YAH, neither does corruption inherit incorruption. See, I speak a secret to you: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed."

 

Now back up to verse 45, you will notice what it said there:

 

"...it has been written, The first man Aḏam became a living being (soul),” the last Aḏam a life-giving Spirit.”

 

 

There may be explained reason why these two difference kind of ADAM have a special kind of message. The first special kind of Adam (human) may have this flesh and bones with no blood BUT WATER. I will explain why soon. Since we know that YahuSha is the second kind of special Adam, we need to realize that he had this flesh, bones and red blood in his system before his death. After he arose from the dead, he no longer have this earthly body and bones a long with this red blood. Because he have this new spiritual body, just like how Luke 24:39 point out that the spirit do not have flesh and bones. I believe the earthly creation of Adam's & his wife's body and bones were without the red blood but only water in their system before sin came in their body. When they ate the forbidden fruit, this explain why Satan had trick them to poison their body which bring in this red blood. One day, when we are all risen from the death in the day YAH return, we will no longer have this red blood too. No wonder why 1st Corinthians 15:50 point out why blood cannot inherit in YAH's world.

This is the whole reason why I've point out numeral of passages why I believe YahuSha was sacrificed on this Olive living Green tree. Is the possible forbidden fig tree of knowledge of good and evil. Not the Roman T-CROSS beam pole or one wood cut upright beam stake. I believe he broke the barrier of the evil spiritual red blood by remove it which hold us by this Satanic control. ​ I also believe the Roman soldiers had nails these three men's wrists (not the middle base hands) on the wood-beam (or cross-beam) before being hang on the side of the tree. Since a nail to the physical base middle hands is impossible. The weight of the body will cause the nail to tear through their hands. When the scriptural passage mentioned the hands, I believe it speaking of the very lower part of the hands which is the wrists. A wrists can hang on the nail. Look below at the photo example to understand why. 

Once they were nails to this wood-beam, they all were being pull way up high to the tree with this ropes ties up on both end of the wood-beam. This wood-beam and the men were being laid on the side of the tree. Against the olive living green tree. It may be very possible that these wood-beam were not nailed to this TREE. The feet in another hand, those men possible were not nails to their feet. There are few supporting passage why this make sense. We need to remember how I understood what the passage taking about in Luke 24:39. We also should remember how the Messiah shown Thomas his hands and his side of the body who 

he had doubts about his return from the death according to John 20:25. Why not show his feet also is why I believe these men were not nails to their feet at all? Being hang is more of being freely by the rest of the body except of their hands. 

FYI: I don't think the Messiah was carrying a log of wood on both shoulders but one. This is more logic why I understand why it is easier to carry the log of wood by one shoulder instead of both. Because of the measure of weight and width. Plus how Isaiah 9:4, 6, 10:27 and Job 31:36 point out one shoulder. Possible also Genesis 49:15 as well. 

Looking back to Luke chapter 23, verse 31 hit me something about this verse. Verse 29 speak of me part about the Revelation 6:16 end time 'For behold, the days will come, when men shall say, Blessed are the barren (unproductive), and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck.' A time where there will be no sex upon this new world. Giving birth a child from woman's wombs will be no more. Revelation speak of this new heaven and earth in chapter 21 as well. Even the book of Mark 12:25 as well. Verse 30 of Luke 23 speak of the rest what will happen in the end time, people'... shall begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us: and to the hills, Cover us.' Than verse 31 speak of 'For if they do these things to a green tree, what shall be done to the dry?' Another word, how can a living one salvation us from the death?​

According to this word "Nazarene", I have discovered this word is an error which should spell out as Natsarene. Because there is a based root word "natsar", which means to "WATCH" - this is because the area around the burg Natsareth was named for it, hence the word "Gennetsaret" (vale of Netsar) -- referring to the whole district. This root word used points to the fact that the town was situated on high ground, and provided a panoramic view of the surroundings. In these places, the change in vowel forms the root "netser", meaning "branch"; it's a kind of synonym, like any word with two meanings, but the same spelling. "He shall be called a Natsarene" according to Matthew 2:23.

 

This is why those who obverse, follow and believe in YahuSha example are the true Natsarim people, because they are the true observant of Yah. Just like how the scripture refer in James 1:26-27. They are the branches and the watchman of the vine. Who the vine of our Master from heaven according to John 15:5.
