Right Hand of Yah
The "Right Hand" in relation to God is used to Identify The Messiah throughout The Word. The "Right Hand" (arm/ finger) of G-d is a Hebrew idom used to relate to: The Works (postive), Strength, Favor, Righteousness & Salvation Of Yah! (Yehoshua/ Yeshua meaning Salvation of Yah!)/ 1 Cor.1:18,23-24
Hearken (Shama) unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and *my right hand* hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together. All ye, assemble yourselves, and hear; which among them hath declared these things? The Lord hath loved him: he will do his pleasure on Babylon, and his arm shall be on the Chaldeans. Come ye near unto me, hear (Shama)ye this; I have not spoken in secret from the beginning; from the time that it was, there am I: and now the Lord God, *and his Spirit, hath sent me (*the first and the last). /
YHVH (Hashem) & His Spirit has sent Mashiach (Adon/Adonai - Lord as IN relation to the earth/ creation)! YHVH's Right Hand is his Works (strength/favor/ salvation).
God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they./ But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool?
Yeshua came in the divine authority (Matt.2123-27) of "God" . Jn.1:1 In the begining (bereshit <- short video) was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word was God. Jn.1:14 And the Word was "MADE" flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the father) full of grace and truth.
"Made" here is ginomai and is most commonly translated to "come to pass" in the kjv (82 times). Why did God have need of flesh for his Word to come to pass? Atonement(s) Lev.17:11.....
There is Only One Lord of lords as David made rather clear. This is the One that sits at the right hand of YHVH (on the mercy seat/symbolized by the ark of the covenant). The perfect lamb by which YHVH has fulfilled the Atonements.
The Lord (YHVH/Hashem) said unto my Lord (Adon- Lord as IN the earth/ or Adonai depending on trans.- which is Lord in His realtion to the earth as in carrying out blessings In the earth), Sit thou at my *right hand*, until I make thine enemies thy footstool.(Mk.12:36/Lk.20:42/ Acts2:34/ Lk.22:69)
Here we Directly see the Right Hand of YHVH relating to Mashiach. We also see the right hand in relation to Strength. Yeshua (Jesus) quotes this in relation to the authority of Messiah in Matt.22 when asking the Pharisees what they know of Messiah.
While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The son of David. He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying, The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my *right hand*, till I make thine enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.
Acts 5:31 Him hath God exalted with his right hand to be a Prince and a Saviour, for to give repentance to Israel, and forgiveness of sins. (Jn.12:32/ Acts 3:15)
Is.53:1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?
Acts 7:48-50 Howbeit the most High dwelleth not in temples made with hands; as saith the prophet, Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool: what house will ye build me? saith the Lord: or what is the place of my rest? Hath not my hand made all these things?
Stephen proceeded... vs.55-56 "But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God." .... and became the first martyer of the gospel!
Ps.118:14-22 is also prophetic of Messiah. vs.14 strength and salvation, vs.15 salvation, righteousness , " the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly" vs.16 "the right hand of the LORD is exalted: the right hand of the LORD doeth valiantly.
We are told that we are to be known by our Fruits (Spiritual). When you see the fruits of Jesus you see YHVH, for he is His "right hand".
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Show us the Father? Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
Messiah came not to do his own will (works) but that of the Father (Jn.6:38-39/ Jn 4:34/ Ps.40:7,8/ Matt26:39/ Jn.9:4-5/ Jn.5:19,30,36/ Jn.17:4). He was speaking of his works (character/ authority being that of YHVH) when he said if you seen me (fruits) you have seen the Father. (*Jn.12:44,45/ Jn.8:28,54) 1 Cor.12:3
Eph.1:19-21 And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: (Again only Messiah has this postion)

Left and Right of Messiah
Matt.25:33-41 And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:
(One who doesnt understand the Hebrew idom of the "Right Hand" /and teaches a 3 person god/ would struggle with this verse, If God was "3persons" then according to this the Father would be cursed seeing as Christ is at his right that would mean the Father would be at his left.)
Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?Is.43:13
Deut.32:39 See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand
My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. (John 10:27–29)
