Our God, Yahweh is one God. Yeshua Messiah is the son of Yahweh, son of man, born of a woman. Messiah died for our sins. He was dead three days and three nights. Yahweh raised him from the grave and he now sits at the right hand of his Father in heaven. We must believe on Messiah and repent of our sins and go down in baptism, taking on his death and resurrection being covered by his blood that he shed for us. If we believe and do these things, Messiah promises us he will raise those who are covered with his blood. "First the dead and then the living" at his coming. We will receive eternal life and live with Messiah and his Father forever. His Kingdom will be here on this earth.

Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever Thou hadst formed the earth and the world, even from everlasting to everlasting, Thou art God. Psalms 90:1-2

For I am the Lord, I change not therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed. Malachi 3:6
