Yeshua is Yehovah

The Lamb



in the Old Testament a lamb would be used as an offering to Yehovah. The lamb should be a year old male when making a Sin Offering, a Guilt Offering, or a Burnt Offering. Offerings stemmed back to Cain and Abel when 'Abel brought fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flocks.

The Hebrew word 'Pesaḥ', or 'Pesach' means to pass over.

Exodus 12 - The Passover was when Yehovah passed through Egypt killed every firstborn - man and animal. Those that put the blood of the Passover Lamb on their door frame would be saved.

Yehovah brought judgement on those that were not protected by the blood of the lamb.

"The Lamb" was never a name attributed to Yehovah in the Old Testament - but without the lamb there was no salvation from death. If they did not put the blood of the lamb on their door frame the firstborn male would die.

In the Old Testament it was the blood of the lamb that saved the people of Israel from death during the Passover - Yehovah passed-over those that were protected by the blood of the lamb - and they retained their life.

The cost of sin was always going to be death, but the blood of the lamb protected God's people from death.

This event is celebrated - a seven day festival called The Feast of Unleavened Bread .

So it is with the death of Yeshua - he was the Lamb of God, the lamb without blemish, the lamb that protects from death when death knocks at your door. Faith in the Lamb gives life eternal. Without this ultimate sacrifice there would be no eternal life for anyone - no one goes to the Father except through the Son. There is no other sacrifice that grants such access - access we do not deserve, but is freely given. That is what 'grace' is - being given something for free that we really don't deserve!

Yeshua, Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world - who clothes us in a garment of salvation and a robe of his righteousness - who removes our sin as far as the east is from the west - without this ultimate Lamb sacrifice there is no eternal life for mankind.

He was not just a man, He was not an angelic being, He was Yehovah come down to earth to be the perfect sacrifice, without blemish, for all sins.

Emunah!



IAM The Name

The Lamb

 

  • He was led like a Lamb to the slaughter


    He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter.
  • Yeshua - the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!


    The next day John saw Yeshua coming towards him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! "
  • God sent his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.


    Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. For what the law was powerless to do because it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh to be a sin offering.
  • Yeshua the Passover Lamb has been sacrificed


    For Christ, our Passover Lamb has been sacrificed
  • "Without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness."


    He said, “This is the blood of the covenant, which God has commanded you to keep.” In the same way, he sprinkled with the blood both the tabernacle and everything used in its ceremonies. In fact, the law requires that nearly everything be cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness."
  • Yeshua, the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect.


    For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your ancestors, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. He was chosen before the creation of the world, but was revealed in these last times for your sake. Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
  • They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony


    “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Messiah. For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.
