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!
