And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved. Acts 4:12.
Today your LORD (יהוה) God (אלהים) says:
Whether you are a sinner or a saint is based only on one factor alone and it all has to do with a Name. One Name makes all the difference. Your entire eternity, your ultimate destiny, hinges on just ONE NAME and what you did with that Name.
And the testimony is this, that God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life. These things I have written to you who believe in the Name of the Son of God, so that you may know that you have eternal life. 1 John 5:11-13.
In that Name alone is salvation, and that is His Name, “Salvation,” “Yeshuah,” “Jesus.” The Name Yeshuah (יְשׁוּעָה) is first used in the Bible when Jacob prophesies over each of his sons right before he dies and right after the seventh son, Dan, whose name means “judge,” and the eighth son, Gad, which means “fortune,” such as good fortune, he states,
For Your salvation (Yeshuah (יְשׁוּעָה): salvation) I wait, O LORD. Genesis 49:18.
Salvation from judgment brings good fortune and because of Yeshuah, I your Judge speak good fortune over you. I have found a ransom! Yeshuah.
Whether you are judged as a sinner or freely enter My Kingdom as a saint, hinge entirely on One Name and your faith in that Name.
“Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned. These signs will accompany those who have believed: in My name they will cast out demons, they will speak with new tongues; they will pick up serpents, and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:15-18.
I carefully crafted the Name. I told you much about that Name. I revealed much to My prophet Isaiah.
These things Isaiah said because he saw His glory, and he spoke of Him [Jesus]. John 12:41.
I showed Isaiah a sign, that there would be a child born to a virgin whose Name would be called “God with us.”
Therefore the LORD Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name God with us (Immanu-El). Isaiah 7:14.
And that sign came and I gave Him a Name that describes who He is – Salvation.
An angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife; for the Child who has been conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. She will bear a Son; and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” Now all this took place to fulfill what was spoken by the Lord through the prophet: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child and shall bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanu-El,” which translated means, “God with us.” Matthew 1:20-23.
And I had already shared His Name with Mary and she believed and received the promise with faith.
The angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall name Him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High; and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David; and He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and His kingdom will have no end.” Luke 1:30-33.
I made sure that the name “Yeshuah,” which means “salvation,” was confirmed with both Mary and Joseph.
And then I talked of the sign the night Salvation came forth to reconcile all the world to Myself.
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” Luke 2:10-12.
The wonderful Child had come into your dark sin-filled world to bring My saving light and saving grace and all good things and perfect gifts. In Him, I came to take away your sins. “There goes the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of he world.”
I also revealed to Isaiah more about the wondrous Child that would be “God with us.”
For a child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His Name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. There will be no end to the increase of His government or of peace, on the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness from then on and forevermore. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will accomplish this. Isaiah 9:6-7.
His Name will be called Wonderful.
Then the LORD said: “I am making a covenant with you. Before all your people I will do wonders never before done in any nation in all the world. The people you live among will see how awesome is the work that I, the LORD, will do for you. Exodus 34:10.
And how did I do that? I showed them My Salvation.
But Moses said to the people, “Do not fear! Stand by and see the את Salvation (Yeshuah (יְשׁוּעָה), which means salvation) of the LORD which He will accomplish for you today; for the Egyptians whom you have seen today, you will never see them again forever. The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent.” Exodus 14:13-14.
And they did see My Salvation and after their wondrous crossing of the Red Sea and their triumphant victory they sang the first song recorded in the Bible, the Song of Moses:
The LORD is my strength and song, and He has become my salvation (יְשׁוּעָה). Exodus 15:2.
And over and over again from Jacob to Moses to David He will walk in that peace. Shalom. My Son spoke “shalom” to those near and to those far. He was the plan I had for you since the foundation of the world. My plans for you are for your shalom, Jeremiah 29:11, that is, wholeness in every area of your life whether it be spiritual, physical, mental or emotional. In Jesus, that is, in My Word, I provide you with health, healing, prosperity, good relationships, fruitful work, a life of joy, but above all with SALVATION in every situation. That Name takes you from the ash heap to seat you with the Prince of Peace.
“He raises the poor from the dust, He lifts the needy from the ash heap to make them sit with nobles, and inherit a seat of glory.” 1 Samuel 2:8.
That Name takes you from the pit to My throne in Heaven.
But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in Heaven in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:4-7.
The sweetness, the enormity, the forgiveness, the beautiful love—for I beautify you with My Yeshuah—you can so easily receive in Jesus captivated and won people’s hearts. And it was simple to have all He came to give you, just by knowing and believing in the love We have for you.
And when you have a heart tender to Me, I show you My Yeshuah, the greatest gift you can receive, the treasure beyond measure, the fountain that will never dry up or die but grows, bubbles, and flows at a rapid speed, giving you eternal life now and forever.
“Because he has loved Me, therefore I will deliver him; I will set him securely on high, because he has known My name. He will call upon Me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him. With a long life I will satisfy him and show him My salvation.” Psalm 91:14-16.
Eternal life is a relationship that comes from knowing Me, the one true God, and the One I sent to save you, Jesus your Lord. And when your heart is to know Me, I introduce you to My Son by whom you come to Me and in whom you see Me, for in seeing Him you see Me—your Healer, your comforter, your beloved, your friend.
When the jailer in Philippi experienced the awesome miracle of the way I look after those who are Mine and the amazing love, joy, and confidence of Paul and Silas in the face of very dire circumstances, his first question was “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” Acts 16:30.
And the answer was as simple and yet profound: “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household.” Acts 16:31. All it takes is faith in One Name and your life is changed forever.
And Paul and Silas spoke the gospel to him together with all who were in his house. And he took them that very hour of the night and washed their wounds, and immediately he was baptized, he and all his household. And he brought them into his house and set food before them, and rejoiced greatly, having believed in God with his whole household. Acts 16:32-34.
And think of Cornelius and his household, Cornelius had a heart for Me and wanted to belong to Me but he did not know of Jesus. I made sure he did. I had him send for Peter to preach to him, and as soon as the great goodness you find in the forgiveness I extend to you in Jesus and the way of drawing close to Me you have in Jesus, their hearts were engaged and they passed from death to life, born again to the truth, goodness, and beauty of My Word, of Yeshuah. Peter told them about Jesus, “Of Him all the prophets bear witness that through His Name everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins.” Acts 10:43.
While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who were listening to the message. All the circumcised believers who came with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they were hearing them speaking with tongues and exalting Me for the good news of Salvation. Acts 10:44-46.
And I make it so easy to be saved and to have the wonder working Name of Yeshuah as your own.
“The Word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart”—that is, the Word of faith which we are preaching, that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation. Romans 10:8-10.
In Jesus and the knowledge of Him, I give you freely all your need for life and godliness—I give you healing, provision, health, wealth, answers, wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, redemption, glory, peace, joy, the Kingdom, and complete forgiveness and cancellation of all sins and the punishment due them and all debt owed to Me from sin. Jesus paid it all for you, Jesus won it all for you, and then He gave you His Name with all authority in Heaven and on earth that it contains. He humbled Himself to exalt you. He emptied Himself to enrich you. And that is Covenant. He made Covenant with you and He continues to do so with each one who comes to believe in His Name.
Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men. Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the Name which is above every name, so that at the Name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5-11.
Everything and everyone must bow to that NAME. In the Name of Jesus there is POWER and that power is for you.
Whatever you ask in His Name, He will do. If you have the faith in His Name to connect with His power, He can do the works He did on earth and greater in, through, and with you. I have called you to partnership (fellowship) with My Son. 1 Corinthians 1:9. And I have sealed you in Him when you believed in the good news of your Salvation and made Him to be wisdom to you, righteousness, sanctification and redemption.
There is nothing I will not give you and do for you in Jesus. His Name is wonderful. It really is the only Name you need to know for all My magnificent promises to be “yes” to you.
But the most precious gift in Jesus of all is that you become one with Me in Him and you can talk with Me, consult with Me, get answers to everything all day and night long from Me, experience My great love for you, and know My heart in Jesus, for He came forth from deep within My bosom, from My very heart, to reveal Me to you.
For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him. John 1:17-18.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him.” Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is enough for us.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father.” John 14:6-9.
And what did Jesus show you about Me? That I will go to any length to make you the you that you always dreamed and longed to be. That in Me you find the friend, the beloved, the provider, the comforter, the sanctifier, the helper ever at your side, and all the forgiveness, love, understanding, joy, peace, and goodness your heart has always longed for. In Me you found the one who understands you, knows you in your deepest parts, and wants to give you everything to make you whole, at peace, and forever happy.
Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you entirely; and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is He who calls you, and He also will bring it to pass. 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24.
I love you and I have given you the treasure of Jesus who reveals My unfailing, unceasing love for you and opens to you the Kingdom of Heaven. In Him I have called you into the greatest love story ever told, greater than any man could conceive without divine revelation, and the good news is that this love story has no end, it is forever, and that it is our story.
I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever; To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth. Psalm 89:1.
