Yeshua - The Rock of our Salvation

1 Samuel 2:2

[2] “There is none Holy like The LORD: for there is none besides you;
there is no Rock like our God."

 

Isaiah 26:1–4

You Keep Him in Perfect Peace

[1] In that Day this song will be sung in the Land of Judah:

“We have a Strong City;
He sets up Salvation
as walls and bulwarks.
[2] Open the Gates,
that The Righteous Nation that keeps Faith may enter in.
[3] You keep him in Perfect Peace
whose mind is stayed on you,
because He trusts in you.
[4] Trust in the LORD forever,
for the LORD GOD is an Everlasting Rock. (Rock of Ages)

 

Psalm 18:1–3

The LORD Is My Rock and My Fortress

To the choirmaster. A Psalm of David, the servant of the LORD, who addressed the words of this song to the LORD on the day when the LORD delivered him from the hand of all his enemies, and from the hand of Saul. He said:

[1] I love you, O LORD, my Strength.
[2] The LORD is my Rock and my Fortress and my Deliverer,
my God, my Rock, in whom I take refuge,
my Shield, and The Horn of my Salvation, my Stronghold.
[3] I call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised,
and I am saved from my enemies. 

 

1 Corinthians 10:1–4

[1] For I do not want you to be unaware, Brothers, that our Fathers were all under The Cloud (God's Divine Protection and Presence), and all passed through The Sea (The Red Sea), [2] and all were baptized into Moses (a type of The Messiah under the Old Covenant) in The Cloud and in The Sea, [3] and all ate the same Spiritual Food, [4] and all drank the same Spiritual Drink. For they drank from The Spiritual Rock that followed them, and the Rock was The Messiah. 

 

John 6:26–40

[26] Jesus answered them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you are seeking me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. [27] Do not work for the food that perishes, but for the Food that endures to Eternal Life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on Him God the Father has set His Seal.” [28] Then they said to him, “What must we do, to be doing the Works of God?” [29] Jesus answered them, “This is the Work of God, that you believe in Him whom He has sent.” [30] So they said to Him, “Then what sign do you do, that we may see and believe you? What work do you perform? [31] Our fathers ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written, ‘He gave them bread from Heaven to eat.’” [32] Jesus then said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, it was not Moses who gave you the Bread from Heaven, but my Father gives you the True Bread from Heaven. [33] For the Bread of God is He who comes down from Heaven and gives Life to the World.” [34] They said to him, “Sir, give us this Bread always.”

[35] Jesus said to them, “I AM The Bread of Life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. [36] But I said to you that you have seen me and yet do not believe. [37] All that the Father gives me will come to me, and whoever comes to me I will never cast out. [38] For I have come down from Heaven, not to do my own will but The Will of Him who sent me. [39] And this is The Will of Him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that He has given me, but raise It up on The Last Day. [40] For this is The Will of my Father, that everyone who looks on The Son and believes in Him should have Eternal Life, and I will raise him up on The Last Day.”

 

Please see the photo in the ancient Land of Median (across The Red Sea in northern Saudi Arabia) of the towering Split Rock of Horeb(Rephidim) next to Mt. Sinai (locals have called it The Mountain of Moses for generations - officially it's called Jebel al-Lawz) were The Children of Israel encamped as Moses went up The Mountain to meet with God and receive The Moral Law (The Ten Commandments). 

 

Isaiah 48:16–17 (THE TRIUNE GOD SPEAKS). 

[16] Draw near to me, hear this: from The Beginning I have not spoken in secret, from the time it came to be I have been there.” And now The Lord GOD has sent me, and His Spirit

[17] Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the LORD your God,
who teaches you to profit, who leads you in The Way you should go."

 

Isaiah 48:21

They did not thirst when He led them through the deserts; He made water flow for them from The Rock; He split The Rock and the water gushed out. 

 

The Greatest Commandment

(Deuteronomy 6:1-19; Matthew 22:34-40)

Mark 12

28One of the scribes came, and heard them questioning together. Knowing that he had answered them well, asked him, "Which commandment is the greatest of all?" 29Jesus answered, "The Greatest is, 'Hear, Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is ONE: 30you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength.' This is The First Commandment. 31The Second is like this, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these." 32The scribe said to him, "Truly, Teacher, you have said well that he is one, and there is none other but he, 33and to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself, is more important than all whole burnt offerings and sacrifices." 34When Jesus saw that he answered wisely, he said to him, "You are not far from the Kingdom of God." No one dared ask him any question after that.

 

Whose Son is the Messiah?   (Read Proverbs 30:4)

(Matthew 22:41-46; Luke 20:41-44)

35Jesus responded, as he taught in the Temple, "How is it that the scribes say that the Christ is the Son of David?

36For David himself said in the Holy Spirit, 'The Lord said to my Lord, "Sit at my Right Hand, until I make your enemies the Footstool of your Feet."'  (GOD is LOVE and HIS LOVE is demonstrated in John 3:16)

37Therefore David himself calls him Lord, so how can he be his son?" The common people heard him gladly.

 

Exodus 17:1–7

Water from the Rock

[1] All the congregation of the people of Israel moved on from the Wilderness of Sin by stages, according to the Commandment of the LORD, and camped at Rephidim, but there was no water for the people to drink. [2] Therefore the people quarreled with Moses and said, “Give us water to drink.” And Moses said to them, “Why do you quarrel with me? Why do you test the LORD?” [3] But the people thirsted there for water, and the people grumbled against Moses and said, “Why did you bring us up out of Egypt, to kill us and our children and our livestock with thirst?” [4] So Moses cried to the LORD, “What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me.” [5] And the LORD said to Moses, “Pass on before the people, taking with you some of the Elders of Israel, and take in your hand the Staff with which you struck the Nile, and go. [6] Behold, I will stand before you there on The Rock at Horeb, and you shall strike The Rock, and water shall come out of it, and the people will drink.” And Moses did so, in the sight of the Elders of Israel. [7] And he called the name of the place Massah and Meribah, because of the quarreling of the people of Israel, and because they tested the LORD by saying, “Is the LORD among us or not?” 

A New Prophet

Deuteronomy 18

15Yahweh your God will raise up to you a Prophet from the midst of you, of your Brothers, like me (Moses). You shall listen to Him. 16This is according to all that you desired of Yahweh your God in Horeb in the Day of the Assembly, saying, "Let me not hear again the Voice of Yahweh my God, neither let me see this Great Fire any more, that I not die." 17Yahweh said to me, "They have well said that which they have spoken. 18I will raise them up a Prophet from among their Brothers, like you; and I will put my words in His(Messiah) mouth, and He shall speak to them all that I shall command Him. 19It shall happen, that whoever will not listen to my Words which He shall speak in my Name, I will require it of Him.

John 5

The Father and the Son

16For this cause the Jews persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill him, because he did these things on the Sabbath. 17But Jesus answered them, "My Father is still working, so I am working, too."

18For this cause therefore the Jews sought all the more to kill him, because he not only broke the Sabbath, but also called God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

19Jesus therefore answered them, "Most certainly, I tell you, the Son can do nothing of himself, but what he sees the Father doing. For whatever things he does, these the Son also does likewise. 20For the Father has affection for the Son, and shows him all things that he himself does. He will show him greater works than these, that you may marvel. 21For as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom he desires. 22For the Father judges no one, but he has given all judgment to the Son, 23that all may honor the Son, even as they honor the Father. He who doesn't honor the Son doesn't honor the Father who sent him.

24"Most certainly I tell you, he who hears my word, and believes him who sent me, has eternal life, and doesn't come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life.

25Most certainly, I tell you, the hour comes, and now is, when the dead will hear the Son of God's voice; and those who hear will live. 26For as the Father has life in himself, even so he gave to the Son also to have life in himself. 27He also gave him authority to execute judgment, because he is a son of man. 28Don't marvel at this, for the hour comes, in which all that are in the tombs will hear his voice, 29and will come out; those who have done good, to the resurrection of life; and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of judgment.

30I can of myself do nothing. As I hear, I judge, and my judgment is righteous; because I don't seek my own will, but the will of my Father who sent me.

John 14

Yeshua the Messiah Promises the Holy Spirit

(Joel 2:28-32; John 16:5-16; Acts 2:1-13; Acts 10:44-48; Acts 19:1-7)

15If you love me, keep my commandments.

16I will pray to the Father, and He will give you another Counselor, that He may be with you Forever,— 17the Spirit of Truth, whom the World can't receive; for it doesn't see Him, neither knows Him. You know Him, for He lives with you, and will be in you.

18I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you. 19Yet a little while, and the World will see me no more; but you will see me. Because I live, you will live also. 20In that Day you will know that I AM in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. 21One who has my Commandments, and keeps them, that person is one who loves me. One who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him, and will reveal myself to him." 22Judas (not Iscariot) said to Him, "Lord, what has happened that you are about to reveal yourself to us, and not to the World?" 23Jesus answered him, "If a man loves me, he will keep my Word. My Father will love him, and we will come to him, and make our home with him. 24He who doesn't love me doesn't keep my Words. The Word which you hear isn't mine, but the Father's who sent me. (God dwells Holy Temples not made by human hands)

25I have said these things to you, while still living with you. 26But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my Name, He will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.

 

Deuteronomy 32:1–4

[1] “Give ear, O Heavens, and I will speak,
and let the earth hear the words of my mouth.
[2] May my teaching drop as the rain,
my speech distill as the dew,
like gentle rain upon the tender grass,
and like showers upon the herb.
[3] For I will proclaim the Name of the LORD;
ascribe greatness to our God!

[4] “The Rock, His work is Perfect,
for all His ways are Justice.
A God of Faithfulness and without iniquity,
Just and Upright is He. 

 

Isaiah 51:1–16

The LORD’s Comfort for Zion

[1] “Listen to me, you who pursue Righteousness,
you who seek the LORD:
look to The Rock from which you were hewn,
and to The Quarry from which you were dug.
[2] Look to Abraham your father
and to Sarah who bore you;
for he was but one when I called him,
that I might bless him and multiply him.
[3] For the LORD comforts Zion;
He comforts all Her waste places
and makes Her wilderness like Eden,
Her desert like the Garden of the LORD;
Joy and Gladness will be found in Her,
Thanksgiving and The Voice of Song.

[4] “Give attention to me, my people,
and give ear to me, my nation;
for a Law will go out from me,
and I will set my Justice for a Light to The Peoples.
[5] My Righteousness draws near,
my Salvation has gone out,
and my Arms will judge The Peoples;
The Coastlands hope for me,
and for my Arm they wait.
[6] Lift up your eyes to the heavens,
and look at the earth beneath;
for the heavens vanish like smoke,
the earth will wear out like a garment,
and they who dwell in it will die in like manner;
but my Salvation will be forever,
and my Righteousness will never be dismayed.

[7] “Listen to me, you who know Righteousness,
The People in whose heart is my Law;
fear not the reproach of man,
nor be dismayed at their revilings.
[8] For the moth will eat them up like a garment,
and the worm will eat them like wool,
but my Righteousness will be forever,
and my Salvation to all generations.”

[9] Awake, awake, put on Strength,
O Arm of the LORD;
awake, as in Days of Old,
the Generations of Long Ago.
Was it not you who cut Rahab in pieces,
who pierced the Dragon?
[10] Was it not you who dried up the Sea,
the Waters of the Great Deep,
who made the Depths of the Sea a Way
for The Redeemed to pass over?
[11] And The Ransomed of the LORD shall return
and come to Zion with singing;
Everlasting Joy shall be upon their heads;
they shall obtain Gladness and Joy,
and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.

[12] “I, I AM He who comforts you;
who are you that you are afraid of man who dies,
of the son of man who is made like grass,
[13] and have forgotten the LORD, your Maker,
who stretched out the Heavens
and laid the Foundations of the Earth,
and you fear continually all the Day
because of the Wrath of the Oppressor,
when he sets himself to destroy?
And where is the Wrath of the Oppressor?
[14] He who is bowed down shall speedily be released;
he shall not die and go down to The Pit,
neither shall his Bread be lacking.
[15] I AM the LORD your God,
who stirs up the Sea so that its waves roar—
the LORD of Hosts is His Name.
[16] And I have put my Words in your mouth
and covered you in The Shadow of my Hand,
establishing the Heavens
and laying the Foundations of the Earth,
and saying to Zion, ‘You are my People.’” 

 

Matthew 16:15–18
[15] He (Jesus) said to them, “But who do you say that I AM?” [16] Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ (The Messiah), the Son of The Living God.” [17] And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father who is in Heaven. [18] And I tell you, you are Peter {"Petros - rock or pebble, a stone"} and on This Rock {"Petra" - a projecting rock or large stone} I will build my Church, and the Gates of Hell shall not prevail against It.
With this unique use of words the Lord Yeshua employed, when read in the Greek manuscripts; it's very clear that Peter is not in whom the Church of God is established but on the Divine revelation to Peter from The Father in Heaven that Jesus (Yeshua The Messiah) is God in The Flesh who dwells among us, as The Prophets foretold! Praise Yah forever!! He lives forever and ever!!!

 

Isaiah 9:2–7

[2] The people who walked in darkness
have seen A Great Light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has Light shone.
[3] You have multiplied the nation;
you have increased its joy;
they rejoice before you
as with joy at the harvest,
as they are glad when they divide the spoil.
[4] For the yoke of his burden,
and the staff for his shoulder,
the rod of his oppressor,
you have broken as on the day of Midian.
[5] For every boot of the tramping warrior in battle tumult
and every garment rolled in blood
will be burned as fuel for the fire.
[6] For to us a Child is born,
to us a Son is given;
and The Government shall be upon His Shoulder,
and His Name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
[7] Of the increase of His Government and of Peace
there will be no end,
on The Throne of David and over His Kingdom,
to establish it and to uphold it
with Justice and with Righteousness
from this time forth and forevermore.
The zeal of the LORD of Hosts will do this.
