God is good, Amen...
Recently i was going through a book and there's some interesting revelations about the Hebrew codes in the Old Testament. God reveals Yeshua/Jesus beneath the Scriptures and it is upon us to discover it and glorify Him!
Underneath Isaiah 53:10 which says: "Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand." What was discovered, the second Hebrew letter Yod from "...he shall prolong his days,.." when counted every 20th letter onward will spell Yeshua Shmi, which means "Yeshua(Jesus) is My Name".
How beautiful is that? GOD even gives His name, telling us that He is our sin offering and once we accept and receive this truth,"...he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand." GOD tells us, "My name's Jesus. I'll be offering myself as a sacrifice for you. From now on, i will give you life that's exceedingly happy and long...! And it is my joy in you that will make you prosper beyond your imagination!"
Hallelujah! Thank you Father, for you loved us first...
Interestingly, on the subject of God's love for us, we remember the love story of Ruth. Pastor has preached many times on this topic. The book of Ruth tells us the story of Love, Devotion and Redemption. Let's take a look in the Hebrew Bible. As we begin reading Ruth 1:1 and looking at the Hebrew text http://www.mechon-mamre.org/p/pt/pt2901.htm we start counting from the first Yod. First י Yod is Zero, count 5 spaces forward(right to left) we get another י Yod, another 5 spaces we get ש Shin, another 5 we get וַ Waw/Vav and another 5 we get עָ Ayin. These alphabets were taken directly from the Hebrew Bible from Ruth1:1. This is no coincidence. Look at the above image for the 4 alphabets of Yod, Shin, Waw/Vav, Ayin. (Read from right to left)
This IS our LORD's official signature. Stamped for those who have eyes to see.
Matthew 13:16 "But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear."
This follows the scripture just after Jesus said in Matthew 13:14-15 "And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘ Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive; For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.’
From Matthew 13:14 we can gather that in the ancient of days when the Jewish sages read their books, they missed out Yeshua altogether. But God still made the provision that if they should understand, our Lord Jesus will still heal them. So, in the New Covenant when Jesus came in the flesh, those that have eyes, saw. They saw Jesus in the flesh and they are blessed because their literal sight saw Him! We are now blessed because our spiritual eyes see Jesus.
How awesome is our GOD! The Book of Ruth speaks about His Love, His eternal devotion to us His children, His redemptive work for our sins and it begins with the foreknowledge of Yeshua/Jesus!
HE is indeed our Saviour... Yeshua HaMaschiach.
Praise the Lord! Hallelujah. And Amen.
