The Spirit of the Lord (אֲדֹנָי) LORD (יְהוִֹה) is upon Me, because the LORD (יְהוִֹה) has anointed me (אֵת) to bring good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim a year of favor of the LORD (יְהוִֹה) and the day of vengeance of our God (אֱלהִים).
Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” Galatians 4:6
Today your LORD (יְהוִֹה) God says:
“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 13:14. “Grace, mercy and peace will be with us, from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.” 2 John 1:3. “Now may our Lord Jesus Christ Himself and God our Father, who has loved us and given us eternal comfort and good hope by grace, comfort and strengthen your hearts in every good work and word.” 2 Thessalonians 2:16. “Even so the thoughts of God no one knows except the Spirit of God. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, so that we may know the things freely given to us by God, which things we also speak, not in words taught by human wisdom, but in those taught by the Spirit, combining spiritual thoughts with spiritual words.” 1 Corinthians 2:11-13. “If Christ is in you, though the body is dead because of sin, yet the spirit is alive because of righteousness. But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” Romans 8:10-11. “I have many more things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of Mine and will disclose it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine; therefore I said that He takes of Mine and will disclose it to you.” John 16:12-15. “In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will request of the Father on your behalf; for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came forth from the Father. I came forth from the Father and have come into the world; I am leaving the world again and going to the Father.” John 16:26-28. “Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever.” Hebrews 13:20-21. “But when the kindness of God our Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon us richly through Jesus Christ our Savior, so that being justified by His grace we would be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.” Titus 3:4-7. “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20.
Do you see what I am showing you in these Scriptures? I am God, but in Me and out of Me proceeds the Son and from Us both proceeds the Holy Spirit. You will see the Spirit referred to as the Spirit of the Father, the Spirit of the Son or of Jesus, and the Spirit of God. We live as One in three divine Persons, completing and filling all things. We work together as One, but with very particular roles of interaction with you and one another. In Us you have the fullness of God. The life, the love, the light, the grace, the fellowship, and partnership filling and completing every part of your life and being. In Me you live and move and have your being. Acts 17:28. Apart from Me your life is nothing, but in Christ I make you fruitful and complete. Ephesians 2:10. In Him I have blessed you with every spiritual blessing in Heaven and with the Blessing of Abraham on earth.
You see Us in our divine aspects from the beginning of the creation of the world. You see the Father, the Word (the Son) and the Spirit. “In the beginning created Elohim (אֱלהִים) ET (את) the heavens and ET (את) the earth. The earth was formless and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.” Genesis 1:1-2. Do you see? The aleph (א) to the tav (ת), that is, the A to the Z, the alpha to the omega. All words are formed from the letters of the alphabet from the first to the last. And I made all things by My Word and for My Word. And where was the Spirit? Hovering over the confusion and void, over the darkness, ready to bring My spoken Word to fruition. Genesis 1:2. And the word translated “hovering” is actually the root of the word “healing” in Hebrew, raphah, meaning “relaxed.” I also use that same word for a mother bird hovering or brooding over her young. Deuteronomy 32:11. When I speak and the Word goes forth then the Holy Spirit brings it to birth, as He did over Mary when the Word became flesh. He hovers, not in a stressful way, but relaxed and comfortable. I am the God of all comfort. I am not anxious or fearful about things. I made all and sustain all by My Word and My Spirit dwelling in your midst. “All you people of the land take courage,’ declares the LORD, ‘and work; for I am with you,’ declares the LORD of hosts. ‘As for the promise which I made you when you came out of Egypt, My Spirit is abiding in your midst; do not fear!’” Haggai 2:4-5.
In English or other translations you will never see the את because in English it would just be AZ, which would seem meaningless, and yet it appears over 11,000 times in the Old Testament. Today most Hebrews define it as an “untranslatable mark of the accusative case.” But its appearance defies exact grammatical rules of when it will be used. My people Israel, however, guard My Word as originally written so they have never removed it. Jesus, however, defined Himself as the Alpha to the Omega to John on the island of Patmos, and, of course, Jesus spoke to John in Hebrew, not Greek, Acts 26:14, so He told him He was the aleph to the tav, which are the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. John understood and rewrote in Greek the summary of the first lines of Genesis in his gospel. “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men.” John 1:1-3.
But now let Me show you a passage from My prophet Isaiah that Jesus spoke as His own so that you can see the awesome truth that has been there always.
Jesus, after spending forty days and forty nights in the wilderness, came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read. The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the scroll and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the Lord (אֲדֹנָי) LORD (יְהוִֹה) is upon Me, because the LORD (יְהוִֹה) has anointed Me (אֵת) to bring good news to the humble. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim a year of favor of the LORD (יְהוִֹה).” Isaiah 61:1-2. He stopped there and told the astonished assembly that, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” He did not finish the last line of the prophecy as written, however, as it includes “and the day of vengeance of our God (אֱלהִים).” Isaiah 61:2.
This is a prophecy of prophecies. It tells you of the first and second comings of Christ. The first introduced the age of favor—the age of grace—the jubilee of favor where all debts are released, forgiven, and gone, territory taken is restored, and slaves are redeemed and set free, and that is the age inaugurated by His first coming as Savior by His birth in Bethlehem to His death, resurrection, ascension, and pouring forth of the Spirit on the Church. The second coming will introduce the time of the tribulation, when My justice is vindicated and vengeance is administered to all those who have persisted in evil and destroyed My earth, but everyone who calls on the Name of the Lord will be saved. Adonai. Jesus.
You have to look at the passage in Hebrew to see all that is being revealed to you. It begins that the Spirit of Adonai Yahweh is upon Jesus. Upon Him as man came the Spirit of the Father and the Son as God (Adonai denotes “Lord”, and can be used to refer to a man or to God, whereas Yahweh refers only to God, pure Spirit, though a divine Person like you in many ways, your spirit man looks like your physical man only perfect in form, maturity, and power, free from pain or corruption, indestructible, glowing with majesty and splendor, but you have eyes and ears, arms, legs, fingers and toes, and so do I, and so do the angels, in fact, your guardian angel looks very much like you, but all these are spiritual bodies which have very different laws that govern them then physical health and bodies). I often describe My Spirit as the Spirit of Jesus or the Spirit of the Son. But you will also see Me refer to Him as “My Spirit,” as the “Holy Spirit,” as the “Spirit of truth,” and as the “Spirit of God.” The Word for Spirit in Hebrew is Ruach, which also means “wind” and breath.” This gives you an idea of who He is. God breathed.
And Jesus read that the Spirit was upon Him, just as it was upon the face of the waters in the beginning, but it also descended in Him on the day of His baptism, as He now does with you. John 14:16. You who believe have been baptized in the Name of Jesus and have received the promised Holy Spirit. Acts 2:38.
But then comes a very remarkable wording that you do not see in translation to English or other language than Hebrew. Jesus says, “because the LORD (יְהוִֹה) has anointed Me (אֵת).” All it has there is the aleph tav, not the word “me” and its form is written “אתי” which is the possessive such as “my name” or “my signature” with the yod on the end, “My aleph tav.”
And what was His mission in His first coming to earth? What did I anoint Him to do? To bring good news to the humble, afflicted, lowly ones, “to bind up the brokenhearted (make them whole again whose hearts have been broken, torn, and abused), to proclaim liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners; to proclaim a year of favor of the LORD (יְהוִֹה).” Isaiah 61:1-2. And He did bring the Jubilee, He released you from the slavery to sin and death by His blood as your kinsman redeemer, and He set all of you free from the sentence of death on Adam to newness of life in Him, and He made you My children, heirs, friends, and a royal priesthood ministering unto Me, your God and Father. He redeemed you from the curse of the law and gave you the Blessing of Abraham and the promise of the Spirit by faith. Through Him I lavished My grace upon you, made you strong, whole, and fruitful, living the life of good deeds I prepared for you in advance in Him that you might enjoy your life, that you might have abundant life. That you would have eternal life. To make you more than conquerors surrounded by My favor and holy and blameless before Me. He made you His own body, the Church, and cares for you as His bride.
Do not ever think you are alone or forgotten. Do not act like a sheep without a shepherd. That is not you. I have you covered in all aspects of your life by a Father, creator, LORD to whom nothing is too wonderful, and nothing is impossible that so loved you that He gave His only begotten Son, generated in His own bosom, to take on Himself your humanity, your sins, your diseases, your sorrows, your loneliness, your punishment, your sentence of death, and your pains so that all those would be punished, satisfied, and done away with for you on Him so that you could be blameless and holy before Me in all His perfection and righteousness. You also are cared for by the Son as your great good Shepherd and great High Priest—leading you, providing for you, carrying you in His bosom, and ever interceding for you and ushering you into the Holy of Holies to the very throne of grace. And you have the Holy Spirit to teach you all things, guide you to all truth, give life and healing to your mortal body and hover over you making you skillful and fruitful as you face each day with Him leading you in the way you should go as He testifies to Jesus.
I love you. I am your Father, you are the clay and I am the potter, you are all the work of My hands, by My Word and by My Spirit. And I can remodel if you have disfigured what I made.
For this reason I bow my knees before the Father, from whom the whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with power through His Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; and that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ which surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled up to all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. Ephesians 3:14-21.
