Did Moses sing to Jesus?


During the week the Holy Spirit blessed me with an awesome revelation from Exodus 15, and I'd like to share it with you.

Here is what just happened:

Moses had opened the sea following the exodus from Egypt, the Israelites passed through on dry land. He then closed the sea again on top of the Egyptian army and they were annihilated.
And Israel saw that great work which the LORD did upon the Egyptians: and the people feared the LORD, and believed the LORD, and his servant Moses. Exo 14:31
Chapter 15 starts as the people and Moses decided to glorify God and sing a song of worship onto Him.

The song sets of:

  I will sing unto the LORD [יְהֹוָה], for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. 
  The LORD [יָהּ] is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation [יְשׁוּעָה - Yeshua]: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. Exo 15:2
Notice the second verse word for LORD is the shortened version of Yahweh (YHVH) [יְהֹוָה], the revealed name of God. It is Yah [יָהּ]. It is like when my son's name is Benjamin and I call him Benny. It is intimacy and close relation talk.

Why am I telling you this?

Because saving the people was a very personal and intimate thing! As was what Jesus did on the cross for all human kind, for you and me.
Notice that they sing that Yah is their strength and song and that He is become their Salvation. 

Hmmm, God is salvation ... Sounds familiar? 

There is a Name for this Person. It is Jesus! - Yah'shua יהושע! The Name of Jesus directly translated from the Hebrew is: Yah is Salvation! Yah is Yah'shua! And the Israelites even worshiped His Name singing this song. 

Yah יָהּ is Yah'shua יהושע!

Yah'shua יהושע is Yahweh (YHVH) [יְהֹוָה]!

The Hebrew scriptures would normally use the word Yasha for salvation. But the word used here in Exo 15:2 for Salvation is the extended word for Salvation pronounced Yeshua (same as the Hebrew pronunciation for Jesus, Yah'shua), but spelled differently than the Name of our Saviour. Here Salvation is spelled יְשׁוּעָה containing all the relevant letters, though.

So, what then if we look at the pictograph for this word, Salvation or יְשׁוּעָה 

You knew that we were going to do this, didn't you?

Get this. The pictograph reads:
  1. יְ Yod (Hand),
  2. שׁ Shin (teeth or consumed),
  3. וּ Vav (Nail),
  4. עָ Ayin (Eye or reveal) and
  5. ה Hay (behold - also symbol for Grace). 
It says:


Especially considering the fact that the pictograph for the Name of Yah'shua (Yah is Salvation) shows:

And ...

The Name of God, YHVH [יְהֹוָה] depicts:

The LORD made it all very simple. Everything points to Jesus! ... and his finished work on the cross! 
Therefore it is only appropriate that the Israelites, seeing the sea being opened, crossings on dry land, seeing the water closing over the enemy and God destroying the enemy, (all as a shadow of the great Salvation to come on the cross) would worship JESUS!

He is become my Salvation!

Bruised reed


The bruised are bound and the smoking fanned to flame!
A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory. Mat 12:20
And in his name shall the Gentiles trust. 
Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind, and dumb: and he healed him, insomuch that the blind and dumb both spake and saw. Mat 12:21-22
What was quoted here in Matthew, is Isaiah 42:3:
A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth. 
To understand this a little better, let's consider the pictograph for the words in the Hebrew version of Isaiah 42 against the context of Matthew 12.

A Bruised reed is רָצַץ קָנֶה or:
  1. the least life or activity revealed (for קָנֶה reed),
  2.  and of man caught-up perceived (for רָצַץ bruised). 
See how it makes sense? 

Here, in Matthew 12:21-22, was a man so utterly bruised by the devil, ready to be extinguished of all life. He was so afflicted that he could not see, nor could he talk. He was caught-up, or trapped (so he perceived) by the devil to think (perceive) that he had the least life (uselessness), depressed, possessed, oppressed and all the other -essed that the modern church so frequently lay on people deceived and afflicted by the devil. Yet, he was fully healed by Yah'shua, Jesus!

Reeds are plants that grow in marshes or wet places. They are fragile and feeble and weak and easily broken. They bend and wave and have no strength to withstand the wind. They have no capacity to stand firm against the elements as does a tree. The analogy refers to people focusing on their hopeless situations and feebleness and sin, who are moved and broken by calamity, who feel powerless, without strength to stand firm in their God-given authority against the ills of life and the deceptions and attacks of the devil. 

The word used for ‘bruised’ (רצץ râtsûts) implies that which is crushed or broken, but not entirely severed. It is a picture of those who are in themselves feeble, and who have been crushed or broken down by a sense of sin, guilt, calamity or by affliction. Bruised here is used in the intensive form.

... Shall he not break - emphasizes that Jesus would not bog down those already broken even further with a sense of sin and with calamity more sin-conscious and guilt-ridden and wretched (He paid the full price for this) to loose hope the way the modern church does. Remember He says His burden is light and His yoke easy! He will not deepen their afflictions or multiply their sorrows. In fact, the very opposite is true when we look at scripture and what Jesus did to bind up the broken-hearted Isa 61:1 and to bring life and that they may have it more abundantly Joh 10:10.

The Hebrew words for smoking flax are:

  1. smoking (כהה kēhâh) [pictograph: open hand revealed, revealed] and literally means that which is feeble, breakable, weak, thin, small - ready to be extinguished or to go out,
  2.  and the word flax (פִּשְׁתָּה pishtâh) that paints the picture of the spoken destroyed covenant revealed. The meaning denotes very much the same picture as theone for the bruised reed.
The Word of God then provides the amazing prophetic outcome in Yah'shua ha Mashiach, Jesus, in that He would lead forth judgment unto truth ... and He did.


Remember our post on the concept of judgement in Daniel ... so, what's in a name? ... Judgement is not our narrow-minded western idea of judgement. It is in fact, the way of the old covenant judges, those who lead the people into the truth, into deliverance, into victory, into prosperity, into relationship with God!

So, pointing exactly to what Jesus said and did before he ascended to comfort us by giving onto us the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. Joh 14:26  

The dying, smoking flax is fanned to life and the broken reed mended to receive out of His precious giving hands, freely ... the abundance of blessings and power and authority to take dominion and to truely see, to truely hear of His goodness, kindness, mercy, grace, patience ... Truth (Jesus)!

Faith & Promise

Amazingly, two words seem to always go hand in hand when reading the New Testament of the Word of God.  These are the words Promise and Faith

Another almost always sticks by ever so closely: Blessing.

Interestingly, in the old covenant the two words (promise and faith) never appear in conjunction with each other. 

Oddly, the same is true for the words promise and blessing.

Beloved of Christ,

Consider Matthews 14:31: 
"And immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, and caught him, and said unto him, O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?" 
There are only a few instances in the Word whence Jesus marvelled.

Strengthened by God against sin


There is a beautiful picture, a scripture of a righteous king who followed not his own heart but confided in YHVH. He is Hezekiah. His name means strengthened by Yahweh.

Hezekiah was confronted by the message of the mighty king of Assyria who blasphemed YHVH and Hezekiah's trust in YHVH and threatened to destroy all of Juda.

The message from Sennacherib (his name means sin be multiplied - representing the adversary here) of Assyria was this:
Let not thy God in whom thou trustest deceive thee, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria. Behold, thou hast heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands, by destroying them utterly: and shalt thou be delivered? Have the gods of the nations delivered them which my fathers have destroyed; as Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the children of Eden which were in Thelasar? Where is the king of Hamath, and the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, of Hena, and Ivah? 2Ki 19:11-13

... and this was not the first message he sent.

However Hezekiah humbled himself, prayed before YHVH and inquired from the prophet Isaiah (YHVH has saved) the son of Amoz (strength) - a picture onto Jesus!

... and Isaiah said:
"Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the king of Assyria, He shall not come into this city, nor shoot an arrow there, nor come before it with shield, nor cast a bank against it. By the way that he came, by the same shall he return, and shall not come into this city, saith the LORD. For I will defend this city, to save it, for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake." 2Ki 19:32-34
The tactics of the enemy are always to scare us, to make us give up and abide by his deception and lies. He makes us think that in YHVH we have no power and goes to the extent as to blaspheme His name. We, on the other hand, always have a choice to decide who we'll believe.

What was the end result?

Hezekiah and Juda did not lift a finger, That very night the Angel of the Lord destroyed 185 000 Assyrians. 

Sennacherib (Sin Multiplied, now not multiplying anymore) went back to his headquarters, Nineveh (the place of Ninus, the fish god). As he was praying to his gods his own sons, Armenia (the curse reversed) and Esarhaddon (brother of darkness), killed him.

Indeed,  YHVH strengthens us. He removed all sin and sins and iniquities He remembers no more.

u r blessed!

Celebrate ... Sukkot?

Sukkot or the feast of Tabernacles is one of the important feasts on the Hebrew calendar.

From the perspective of the finished work of Jesus, it should be pretty obvious that this feast was fulfilled by Jesus.

Yet, many Christians feel obliged to follow after the Jewish traditions and celebrate the feasts.

Should we?

Inherited Authority to rule! Go ye therefore! Part 3


  • how man (Adam) gave up his dominion (unconditional authority) given to him by God
  • how God never violates His Word by going against what He said so that when He gave man dominion on the earth He would keep it at that
  • how because of God's great integrity, He came (manifested) as Man, in human flesh

Orientate yourself, man!

Beloved of Christ

We need to note that the focus of all scripture, all the time and in all ways is upon Christ Jesus. Accordingly we should ourselves, when reading the scriptures - old or new covenant, at all times focus our attention on Christ Jesus.

We need always to direct our minds and position ourselves in relation to the cross - Am I reading before or beyond the cross? 
Am I reading the shadow of things to come or were they fulfilled?

What Jesus promised came to pass and is ready and available for our benefit. The Holy Spirit is yearning for us to receive Him so that we may, in power obtain opened understanding. So that we do not read Moses (the law), the prophets and the Psalms as if all was not fulfilled on the cross, deceiving ourselves in become human-doings instead of human beings. We should merely receive His righteousness and His Grace, as a free gift.
Luk 24:44-49 And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
What promise of the Father?
Joe 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh

Endued is to be clothed, to be arrayed and covered with. Jerusalem is place of peace (not labour, not as human doing but just by being).

When Jesus said this, He had already been glorified for the sake of our righteousness! HalleluYAH!

And look at this:
Rom 4:25  Who was delivered for our offences, and was raised again for our justification.
... the word translated "for" (in Greek - dia) in the passage above is better translated as: because offore, from, in, by occasion of, of, by reason of, for sake, that, thereby (Strong Concordance)

... you see, Jesus was raised from the dead for the very purpose of Him living in you by His Spirit and this could only have been done once you were justified ... just-as-if you never sinned - holy and sanctified. Why? Simple! God is holy and light and darkness can not coexist. To receive the Spirit of God you needed to become holy first! 
2Co 5:21  For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
Everything, pre- and post-cross is focused on Jesus and the extremes He endured to present to you His precious and undeserving Gift!

... and you will be endued with the Spirit of Power and Truth!

u r dipped in the fountain of His love! Take it!
