"YH'SHWH in HIS LOVING GRACE killed an innocent animal..."
I think this more or less epitomizes the rationality of worshipping a paranoid, schizophrenic, sexist, homophobe who is supposed to have impregnated an engaged virgin in order to give birth to himself in order to be sacrificed to himself to save the world from...himself! If "God" is so perfect he would have done it right the first time and not needed to send "himself" or a messiah or anyone to fix what shouldn't have been broken in the first place.

WE believe that YH'SHWH’s plan was to create and to get HIS BODY together. (Ezekiel 37:1-12) It started with the first man and woman. WE believe that they were created as ONE and then separated into two. (Genesis 1:26-28, 2:21-23) Then, they went and did what they wanted to do without YH'SHWH; on their own. That is the sin. (Genesis 3:6) To move, make a decision, or to speak without YH'SHWH. (not submitting to HIS SPIRIT).
YH'SHWH in HIS LOVING GRACE killed an innocent animal (WE believe a LAMB), instead of the man and woman, and took it’s skin and covered their sin; their nakedness. (Genesis 3:21) (Death was introduced into CREATION) HE covered their sin with INNOCENT SKIN. WE believe that’s why Abel’s gift was respected. (Genesis 4:2-5) Abel was offering to YH'SHWH what YH'SHWH had done for US - HIS SACRIFICE. As WE should. Cain was offering what Cain did for YH'SHWH.
WE believe that YH'SHWH, HIMSELF, came to take the place of that SACRIFICED LAMB. YH'SHWH, as MESSIAH, came and denying HIMSELF became a human indwelled by HIS SPIRIT. As WE should. Everything HE did was done as a human listening and following YH'SHWH’s WORD and HOLY SPIRIT. As WE should. WE believe that HE, as a human, had to learn who HE WAS. As WE do. HE, YH'SHWH as MESSIAH, put all CREATION on the line for our SALVATION. HE LOVES US!!!
WE believe that all HIS actions are actions that we are capable of doing as HIS BODY. The only difference is that HE is the HEAD (of HIS BODY) and WE are HIS BODY.
YH'SHWH is creating HIS BODY!!! Each one of US a “cell” – a “room”.
When HE was here on earth He was in COMPLETE FORM, but death had to be conquered. Death was introduced by US, HIS BODY, in our sin. HE died INNOCENTLY and death was conquered.
Again, YH'SHWH is creating HIS BODY!!! A physical picture of HIS BODY is this. Look at the "atom". Physically it has a center and objects orbiting around that center. Look at the "universe" (which by the way means ONE WORD) and it has a center with objects orbiting around that center. They look alike. The universe is made of atoms that have come together as ONE WORD. The atom is in the image of the universe.
So, again, YH'SHWH is creating HIS BODY!!! HE is the HEAD. HIS SPIRIT is in HIS BODY. WE are HIS BODY. WE are in HIS IMAGE!!! HE has given US our body. Our body will never deny US. Our body will follow US anywhere, sadly, even into sin.
The difference between our given body and HIS, is that HIS BODY will CHOOSE to be HIS!!!
HIS BODY will CHOOSE to be HIS HOLY BODY!!!!!!!
WE will be ONE!!!
YH’SHWH (HEAD)-------SPIRIT (BRIDE)-------CREATED BODY (SON)
WE are called the SONs (children) of YH’SHWH.
The end is covered by the “TWO (olive branches/candlesticks) WITNESSES/ANNOINTED ONES that stand before "the LORD" of the Earth”. (Zechariah 4 / Revelation 11) WE believe the TWO WITNESSES/ANNOINTED ONES are the TWO OLIVE trees, becoming ONE, in Romans 11. The TWO branches that were broken off in Jeremiah 11:16-17. The TWO WITNESSES are not two people, but TWO PEOPLES (the HOUSE of ISRAEL, Tribes under EPRAIM, and the HOUSE of JUDAH, Tribes under JUDAH) that will become ONE.
The TWO are explained in Ezekiel 37:15-28. In fact, HIS WORD (The BIBLE/Genesis to Revelation) is prophesized in these verses. The word that is translated “stick” in Ezekiel 37 is translated to “tables / tablets” in Habakkuk 2:2. WE believe that the “tablet” written for “the HOUSE of JUDAH” is our “OLD COVENANT” and the “tablet” written for the “HOUSE of JOSEPH, that is in the hand of EPHRAIM” (House of ISRAEL), is our “NEW COVENANT”. Joined together into ONE TABLET; ONE in OUR HAND!!!
WE believe that the two tablets (two sticks) are our HOLY TABLET (ONE stick in our hand). HIS ONE Book - HIS ONE WORD (Genesis to Revelation).
And when WE are asked, “What does all this mean?” WE will answer:
The TWO kingdoms (The TWO PEOPLES-The TWO WITNESSES)
