His Hebrew name was Yeshua meaning God saves... And boy does He!
Yeshua meaning God saves.
Jesus is our amazing savior. He is the Messiah. He is the Christ. He came to save each and all of us. He did just that. He saved each and every one of us. That was His purpose and to fulfill God's will through His sacrifice. He saved all of us. He saved us from ourselves. He saved us from our sin. Each and every one of us. What an incredible gift that God provided. He saved us from our sin. He intercedes on our behalf. That is how much God loves us. Our debt is paid in full by Him. He alone is the answer and the atonement for sin. The rest is really up to us. You are bought and paid for at a great price. It is nothing that you and I do and it is everything that He has done. It is by grace and grace only. His wish is that none would perish. That each of us would be saved. He alone provides the remedy for our sin. He is the perfect Lamb without blemish. The propitiation for our sin. He intervenes so that each and every person would be saved from their sin. The only way to the Father is through the Son. His Hebrew name is Yeshua which means God saves. Indeed through the cross all of us have the opportunity to be saved. We also get the original Hebrew name of Yehoshua which literally translates to God saves. Yeho meaning Yahweh or God and shua meaning saves. Immanuel means God with us and Yeshua means God saves. We can rest assured that He lives up to His name. He truly does. He really does. He surely does. We belong to Him as He has provided for our salvation. He is steadfast, loyal and complete in every sense. We have been bought at a great price. We have an amazing savior in Jesus and He is so very incredible. He loves us so very much. In the Bible Jesus knows exactly why He is here and thus forecasts His own death and suffering many times. He becomes the sacrificial Lamb of God and goes to the cross to pay for our sins. He takes our place. It has to be done that way. For no matter how good you think that you are or might be you and I are not even close and are filthy rags and could never save ourselves. We are not holy. He is holy. The good news is we do indeed have a savior. Language, linguistics, vernacular, semantics and context all play vital roles in our ability to communicate with one another. God always says what He means and He means what He says. If only the rest of the world would do that I believe we would and could live in a far better world. My name, Damian, is Gaelic for gentle man. I strive for that each day but I can tell you that I fall mightily short. So very short. I have so very much work to do. Jesus ( Yeshua ) lives up to His name in every way and in every sense and is God who saves. In turn, He is manifested in our lives through the Holy Spirit. He dies and suffers so we can live. He sacrifices His life for us. He is the savior for all mankind. We are incredibly blessed.
The greatest thing though is that while He forecasts His suffering He also forecasts His Resurrection making it possible for all of us to inherit eternal life. Not for anything that we do but for all that He did. One time for all humanity to pay for all sin. He provides the completeness of our salvation. By His stripes we are healed. Jesus cries from the cross with His last words, "Tetelestai!" meaning it is finished. He has done it forever. You are indeed covered. He has conquered the grave. What an incredible savior. It is the grace of God which saves each and every one of us. His work at the cross is what saves us. Grace beyond belief. It is amazing. Belief and repentance becomes our job and He makes it easy so very, very easy.
