When the Septuagint was written and Hebrew was translated to Greek, Yeshua was brought over as Iesous, thence into English as Jesus. It means : “Y-H-V-H saves” and is the masculine form of Yeshua (“salvation’), The Messiah of Israel, Yeshua from Nazeret.
During Pesach (Passover) over 2,000 years ago Yeshua became the sacrificial El’Ha’She ( Perfect Lamb). His blood was shed and the B’rit hadashah (New Covenant) was cut. Yeshua fulfilled all the prophecies as stated throughout the Tanakh (Old Testament). Most Jews of the time did not recognize Him as they were looking for a warrior to defeat Rome, not a Savior who would come in peace to bring Salvation to the WORLD!
Daniel 9:24-26 prophesied that the Messiah would come and die before the second temple was destroyed, 69 X 7 years (483 years) after the rebuilding of the wall of Yerushalayim which He did (Matthew 2:1, 16, 19, Like 3:1). We are told that He would be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:1, Matthew 2:1), that He would be the Son of God (Psalm 2:7, Proverbs 30:4, Matthew 3:17, Luke 1:32), that He would be born of a virgin (Isaiah 7:14, Matthew 1:18-24), that he would be preceded by one who would announce Him (Isaiah 40:3-5, Matthew 3:1-3), that He would be without sin (Isaiah 53:9, I Peter 2:22), that he would openly enter Yerushalayim on a donkey (Zechariah 9:9, Matthew 21:1-11), that He would enter the temple with authority (Haggai 2:7-9; Malachi 3:1, Matthew 21:12;24:1, Luke 2:27; 45-50), that He would be undesired and rejected by His own people (Isaiah 53:2, 63:3, Mark 6:3, Luke 9:58, John 1:11), Be betrayed by a friend (Psalm 41:10, 53:13-15, Matthew 26:21-25; 47-50, John 13:18-21), be beaten (Isaiah 50:6, Matthew 26:27), be considered a law breaker (Transgressor) (Isaiah 53:12, Matthew 27:38), be the Perfect Lamb whose death would atone for the sins of mankind (Isaiah 53:5-7,12 Mark 10:45, John 1:29; 3:16), be raised from the dead (Isaiah 53:9-10, Psalm 2:7;16:10, Matthew 28:1-20, Acts 2:23-36), ascend to the right hand of God (Psalm 16:11, 68:18, Luke 24:51, Acts 1:9-11; 7:55) and be sought after by both Jew and Gentile (Isaiah 11:10; 42:1, Acts 10:45, 13:46-48).
If Yeshua is not the Messiah, then how can sin be forgiven? Sin’s cannot be forgiven with out Messiah Yeshua since the Temple was destroyed as prophesied and sacrifices cannot be performed. If Yeshua is not the Messiah why would HaShem (God) allow the Temple to be destroyed? Without Messiah Yeshua, there is no biblically prescribed way to forgive sins! Who can be a partaker of this New Covenant? That’s the miracle! Anyone can, all you have to do as ask Messiah Yeshua to forgive YOUR SINS and you will be cleansed of your transgressions and be given everlasting life! You cannot save yourself “not by works of righteousness which we have done but according to His mercy He saved us” Titus 3:5.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” – John 3:16. “That if you acknowledge publicly with your mouth that Yeshua is Lord and trust in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be delivered” – Romans 10:9. Don’t wait or delay any longer. If you were to die today in an auto accident where would you go?” You don’t even know if you will be alive tomorrow! For all you are is a mist that appears for a little while and then disappears.” – James 4:14. Say this prayer right now in faith and accept Messiah Yeshua as YOUR PERSONAL SAVIOR today!
“Father, God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob: I have sinned. I was born a sinner. I have done things and spoken things that are displeasing to you. I believe in Messiah Yeshua! I profess Him Lord and Savior of my life! Please forgive my sins! I place His life within me by faith and know that my sins are forgiven and removed!”
“So if the Son frees you, you will really be free” John 8:36. Welcome home to the Kingdom of God! SHALOM! AMEN! HALLELUJAH!
