Stand firm and you will see the deliverance The Lord will bring you today. The Egyptians (disease, trouble, pain) you see today you will never see again. the Lord will fight for you: you need only to be still. Exodus 14:13-14.

We serve a good God, who wants us to know His name!  He loves us with an everlasting love.  He wants to be our Comforter, Deliverer, and Healer.  As we trust Him in each situation, He will come in with His healing Word, and insight to tell us what to do.  He is our faithful Abba Father.

O Sovereign Lord, my strong Deliverer, who shields my head in the day of battle - (Psalm 140:7)

The mountains display Yahweh's majesty!

Powerful Names of God in Hebrew

Yeshua means - Yahweh saves.

Yahweh means – I AM, that I AM.  Personal name of God.

Elohim means – Creator and judge.

Abba means – Daddy in Hebrew (This is the way Yeshua Jesus referred to Father God).

There are 365 attributes that go with the name of God (I AM).   When studying the scriptures you will notice how many times God’s attributes come forth.

           Yeshua the Messiah

Knowing Him and His Power

 


Yeshua is the original Hebrew proper name for Jesus of Nazareth.  In Hebrew Yeshua means both "Salvation," and the concatenated form of Yahoshua, the "LORD who is Salvation." The name Jesus has no intrinsic meaning in English, except as it is known as His name in English. (Therefore, we cannot deny the name Jesus, since this name commonly identifies the Messiah to English speaking people.)  

Many people of the world believe Yeshua to be the promised Lamb of God, who was chosen to be sacrificed for all mankind's sin. The Bible declares that mankind must have a blood sacrifice to substitute punishment for their sins by placing them on the sacrifice, figuratively speaking. The sacrifice has to be blameless; else the punishment could not be substituted, since the thing sacrificed would be dying for its own sins. Clean and spotless animals were once sacrificed as a temporal measure until a fully qualified sacrifice could be supplied at the proper time. Followers of Yeshua believe He was that perfect sacrifice. He is a man, who could be properly substituted for mankind, yet God in the flesh, for only God is sinless. Only God Himself is a pure enough sacrifice to satisfy His holy justice, for all men have sinned.

Yeshua came speaking the Torah Word of God with absolute authority. He made no mistake in regards to all God's commands. Only God Himself could act this way. For this reason people accept Yeshua as God in the flesh. Not that God is consigned or limited to flesh, but that He can manifest Himself in whatever form He pleases to fulfill His task. Yeshua of Nazareth was and is the form of flesh that God was manifest in. In this form, Yeshua is the Son of God and the Son of Man.

Because Yeshua presented Himself with this absolute authority it is only logical to conclude He is God.

Isa 9:6-8 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. 7 Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. 8 The Lord sent a word into Jacob, and it hath lighted upon Israel.

 

Yeshua is that light, the Word unto Jacob/Israel!  For it is Yeshua Who is Wonderful, Counsellor, Mighty God, The everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace!
