Names like, Corvette, Mustang, GTO, Camaro what does that stir in your soul.. Which car names lights up your mind when you hear it…
“Jaguar XKE” or “Porsche 917”
SO this week as I was getting ready for my show at Sweetwater Baptist Church’s Car Show, knowing that I would get a chance to share the Gospel with the crowd at the trophy ceremony..
Thursday morning In prayer I was asking God for direction going through my daily prayer I got to the point where I ask for my word for the day…. God told me “Salvation”
A little let down, I really wasn’t expecting to find much but I went to Blue Letter Bible to search for the first use of the word Salvation in the Bible. I can only wish now that Jesus would had a smart phone to take a snapshot of the look on my face when I saw Hebrew for the word “salvation”. The look on my face I’m sure brought the house down among the great cloud of witnesses… Something I knew, but I didn’t know if you know what I mean.
Here is the first place you find it when Jacob/Israel was blessing Dan in Genesis.
Genisis 49:18 “ I have waited for your salvation, Oh Lord”
The Herbrew word for salvation you have probably seen before. “yĕshuw`ah”
Yes, The Yeshua or Joshua or in the Greek, JESUS
So everywhere you see salvation in the Bible, God is kinda saying, “Jesus” or Yeshua. So below are some scriptures that blow my mind when I read them inserting, “YESHUA”. I hope you will expand this to your own search it’s AMAZING..AMAZING what God has done in His Word, with The WORD!!
Genisis 49:18 ” I have waited for your salvation/YESHUA, Oh Lord”
13 And Moses said to the people, “Do not be afraid. Stand still, and see the salvation (YESHUA) of the Lord, which He will accomplish for you today. For the Egyptians whom you see today, you shall see again no more forever.
2 The Lord is my strength and song,
And He has become my salvation; YESHUA
He is my God, and I will praise Him;
My father’s God, and I will exalt Him.
2 Samuel 22:51
51 “He is the tower of salvation/Yeshua to His king,
And shows mercy to His anointed,
To David and his descendants forevermore.”
1 Chronicles 16:23
23 Sing to the Lord, all the earth;
Proclaim the good news of His salvation/Yeshua from day to day
2 Chronicles 20:17
17 You will not need to fight in this battle. Position yourselves, stand still and see the salvation/Yeshua of the Lord, who is with you, O Judah and Jerusalem!’ Do not fear or be dismayed; tomorrow go out against them, for the Lord is with you.”
15 Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.
Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.
16 He also shall be my salvation/Yeshua,
For a hypocrite could not come before Him.
17 Listen carefully to my speech,
And to my declaration with your ears.
18 See now, I have prepared my case,
I know that I shall be vindicated.
2 Many are they who say of me,
“There is no help/Yeshua for him in God.”
- Salvation/ Yeshua belongs to the Lord.
Your blessing is upon Your people
7 Oh, that the salvation/ Yeshua of Israel would come out of Zion!
When the Lord brings back the captivity of His people,
Let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad.
11 Why are you cast down, O my soul?
And why are you disquieted within me?
Hope in God;
For I shall yet praise Him,
The help/Yeshua of my countenance and my God.
2 He only is my rock and my salvation;/Yeshua
He is my defense;
I shall not be greatly moved.
26 He shall cry to Me, ‘You are my Father,
My God, and the rock of my salvation.’/Yeshua
3 Therefore with joy you will draw water
From the wells of salvation./Yeshua
Isaiah 49:6 New King James Version (NKJV)
6 Indeed He says,
‘It is too small a thing that You should be My Servant
To raise up the tribes of Jacob,
And to restore the preserved ones of Israel;
I will also give You as a light to the Gentiles,
That You should be My salvation/Yeshua to the ends of the earth.’”
6 Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
And look on the earth beneath.
For the heavens will vanish away like smoke,
The earth will grow old like a garment,
And those who dwell in it will die in like manner;
But My salvation/ Yeshua will be forever,
And My righteousness will not be abolished.
7 How beautiful upon the mountains
Are the feet of him who brings good news,
Who proclaims peace,
Who brings glad tidings of good things,
Who proclaims salvation,/Yeshua
Who says to Zion,
“Your God reigns!”
“Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation, Yeshua
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey
25 And behold, there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon, and this man was just and devout, waiting for the Consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was upon him. 26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. 27 So he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when the parents brought in the Child Jesus, to do for Him according to the custom of the law, 28 he took Him up in his arms and blessed God and said:
29 “Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace,
According to Your word;
30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation/ Yeshua
Can you imagine Mary and Joseph Bring Jesus to the Temple and Simeon and Anna Ask, what’s his name… “Yeshua says Joseph and Simeon says “Lord, now You are letting Your servant depart in peace,
According to Your word; For my eyes have seen Your Yeshua
The Original designer’s Name has a huge significance don’t you think…
