Form the outset, we must remember that Yeshua is both God AND man.
From Isaiah 9:6 we see—
For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the
government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The
Prince of Peace.
A child (Yeshua) could not be given; the son (Logos—the Word) could not be born. Yeshua Messiah is both God and man. As God he is equal with God, and as man he is equal with man.
A child could not be given because Yeshua would have entered into the earth illegally. The child, Yeshua, had to be born in order to satisfy the claims of man. Like wise, Christ could not be born because that would give God a beginning. Christ had to be given in order to satisfy the claims of God.
Yeshua became a man in the womb of Mary, but Messiah (Christ), deity existed eternally.
God becoming a man, or the uniting of humanity with deity, is called the Hypostatic Union:
STASIS: That which stands
That which stands under—a foundation.
Literally: Tangibility, reality, substance
It is imperative that you identify with Yeshua’s humanity, and equally imperative that you believe in his deity.
Yeshua Messiah—Hypostatic Union—emphasis on his humanity
Messiah Yeshua—Hypostatic Union—emphasis on his deity
Son of David—Hypostatic Union—emphasis on his humanity
The thrust of a verse containing the name of his hypostatic union is determined by the order of these i.e., whether the action goes from God to man or from man to God. Thus—
Yeshua Messiah—Man to God
Messiah Yeshua—God to man
Yeshua The Mediator
We (men) approach the mediator in the name of his humanity. He approaches the Father in his deity and receives the answer. We receive the answer to our petition from his humanity.
We pray in the name of Yeshua, not in the name of Christ, and not in the name of Yahweh.
Yeshua is not 50‰ God and 50‰ man. He is 100‰ God and 100‰ man. He can satisfy all the claims of God because he is God. He can satisfy all the claims of man because he is man.
Yeshua Messiah is God in the form of man; as completely God as if he were not man; as completely man as if he were not God.
He is God.
He is the Father.
He is deity taking on flesh.
His deity did not grow up—his humanity grew up. —Luke 2:40
The child (humanity) grew (human spirit) —Luke 2:52
Yeshua increased in wisdom
Obviously Yeshua could not talk in the cradle as a newborn. —Hebrews 10:5-7
Body = Yeshua
Humanity Did The Work Of Salvation
You believe on his deity to be saved, but his humanity did all the work.
1 John 4:15
1 John 5:1, 5, 10
Salvation is substitution, God cannot die, but Yeshua, as a man, could die.
Even if God could die it would not do you any good. God cannot pay for what man has done. That is neither equal nor fair.
Yeshua always said that the son of man must suffer, be turned over, die, etcetera.
Matthew 17:12, 22-23
In light of the foregoing, I submit that Yeshua, as a man, called upon his God, but as Messiah (deity) he called upon his Father. I believe this is mot clearly seen on the cross. As Yeshua hung there on the cross, dying, his cry was, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me." He did not exclaim, "My Father, my Father...).
