“Great Peace have they who love Your law. Nothing can make them stumble.” (Ps. 119:165)
Common words we hear all the time like 'Jerusalem' or 'Bethlehem' or 'HalleluYAH' (Hallelujah) have become beloved words to us as believers.
We hear and speak these words not even realizing their very names bear such great meaning!
For instance, who knows what Jerusalem means?
Well, and that is a deep subject (LOL), Jerusalem means - Rain or Foundation of Peace. How about Bethlehem?
What does Bethlehem mean?
Bethlehem means -House of Bread.
Now, who do we think of as being from these places? Jesus.
We think of Jesus being from these places for the Scriptures tell us so even in our English language.
In Hebrew Jesus's name is Y'SHUA.
Sometimes it is spelled Yehsua, Y'shua, Yahshua, Yehoshua. Even his name bears significance.
Yahshua comes from YHWH (YaHWeH). Think of the word HalleluYAH which actually is a Hebrew word we use all the time. – HalleluYAH means Praise Yah! The ancient Hebrew letters of this word actually begin and end the word with letters that are pictures of a person with hands lifted up in praise beholding the Almighty!!
The word picture formed by the letters of Hallelujah: The Almighty One Who gives us the very breath we breathe, The One Who teaches us! The One Who Shepherds us through His Son YahShua who was lifted up for all men to see & crucified for our remission of sins-BEHOLD HIM!
The letters that form the word HALLELUYAH give the whole salvation message!
Astounding!!! Is it not?!?!
Y'shua means Yahweh’s Salvation.
Y'shua is the Bread of Life come down from Heaven and born in the city that bears that record- Bethlehem the House of Bread!
He, the Bread of Life was born in the House of Bread! He is from Jerusalem which means City/Foundation of Peace and He is the Prince of Peace (Sar Shalom)! He is the Foundation of Peace!
Let's marvel now at the word Israel.
When written out in the pictographic letters of ancient Hebrew we are shown a person beginning as a child and then growing into a man.
It begins with the smallest letter of the Hebrew AlephBet 'the YUD'-the servant letter- then ends with the tallest letter - the Great Shepherd/Teacher letter- of the Hebrew AlephBet 'the LAMED'!
The servant of all grows into the greatest teacher of all! HALLELUYAH!
So here too we have a great word picture about Yahshua.
YHWH’s Salvation, Y'SHUA, was (not mistakenly, but rather quite purposefully,) born in the House of Bread for He is the Bread of Life and from the City of Peace/Foundation for He is the Prince of Peace upon Whom is our foundation and He gives praise to His Father the Elohim of Israel wherein He grew in stature from a child to a man!
From a servant to a teacher!
His very life, His name, the way the very letters about Him fit together, His place of birth, etc.. contain the essence of the foundation of the principles of life's purpose...He is teaching us how to walk in His Father's ways!!!
Now let me hear an AMEN!!! HALLELUYHWH!!!
How can we sit still after realizing that! Let us shout! For in Him alone is our victory! HalleluYAH!!!
