Yeshua Ha Mashiach

O Blessed King Of The Universe, We Praise Your Holy Name

    Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who brings forth bread from the Earth. Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua-- Who has come down to the Earth like Manna, as the True Bread from Heaven. Our Messiah Yeshua is the True Manna, the Holy One, the Word of God made flesh. Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who has given of Your glory to flesh and blood.
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Passover Lamb, Yeshua the Messiah-- the spotless and perfect Lamb of God-- Whose blood we have placed over our doorways and our lives, in obedience to Your will, to save us from the dark power of evil, from the black pit of death and Hell.
    Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who reigns eternally as the Father of Lights and as the proud Father of Yeshua, our Messiah, Who is the Light of the World and the Sun of Heaven. Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who opens the eyes of a blind and stiff-necked humanity, allowing us to see Your glory!
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua. Though the Chosen People of God turned away from You in faithlessness so many times, there was one Jew among all your children, a descendent of David, Who never disobeyed You and never sinned-- Who was faithful to Your will in all of His deeds and in all of the human lifetime that He spent on Earth. Wiser than King Solomon and greater than King David, He is destined to become the King of Israel and the King of all kings! To the King of the Universe, our Elohim, we shout Hallelu-YAH!
    Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who creates the fruit of the vine. Blessed are we, the children of Israel and all our many heirs, in the gift of the blood of Your Messiah, Yeshua-- which You have so wonderfully transformed into the symbolic wine of our Passover Meal. We drink of the sacrificial blood that has become wine, and we eat of the True Bread from Heaven-- knowing that Satan's powers can no longer tempt us to an Eternal Death in the darkness of unfaithfulness.
    Blessed are we, Your children, as we partake of communion with You, with Your Son, and with Your Holy Spirit through the elements of our modern-day Passover celebration. As You have commanded us, so we do: "Remember Me as you eat and drink." We remember Your sacrifice of Your Own Holy Son, a sacrifice that was foreshadowed by Abraham's near-sacrifice of his son Isaac, as we eat and drink. We remember Your Messiah's blood shed upon a wooden cross, and His body broken for us...
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah Yeshua, as we break the bread of communion with You, as we drink the wine that comes from His blood. This is our Passover Meal in the New Covenant of Your Word. The bread is His broken body, and it is also the Holy Scriptures that we consume, to our great benefit and a healthy nourishment... because Your Messiah Yeshua is the Word of God and the Bread of Life. We also eat symbolically of the meat from Your Passover Lamb as we consume the meat of Your Holy Word, as we read aloud the words of your Holy New Covenant scriptures.
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua. Now You are able to create new fruit even in us, through our lives and our works on Earth-- as long as we remain attached to our vine, Yeshua, Who is our Divine Source. He is also the Sun of Righteousness Who gives us light and warmth, and Who ever nourishes us!
    Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who has given of Your glory to flesh and blood. We speak these words of faith in the Presence of a king, as we partake of our Passover Meal-- awaiting the awesome advent which is the Return of the King, the Second Coming of our Messiah Yeshua. We speak these words in the Omni-Presence of our Divine and Omnipotent King, the King of the Universe--Yeshua our Messiah.
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua. He has already ascended to glory in Heaven, but soon He will ascend also to the throne of Earth. He Who is our Holy One and Who is coming back soon has declared-- has surely declared-- that He will one day take His rightful throne as the King of Israel, the King of Earth, the King of Kings. For this purpose was He born, and for this purpose did He come into our world. And He has declared to us, "Behold, I will be coming suddenly!"
    Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, Who creates the fruit of the tree. Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua-- Who had such a fruitful human lifetime during the years of His bodily incarnation on our planet Earth. Blessed are You, Messiah Yeshua, the Son of God Who is also God The Son, because You are the Tree of Life. When we eat from the fruit of this Tree of Life, we are granted the gift of forgiveness and an Eternal Life in the Presence of Almighty YHWH, Who is simultaneously God The Son and God The Holy Spirit.
    But woe unto all those humans who are not fruitful trees during their lives on Earth, never repenting of sin, never serving faithfully the great King of the Universe, because they will be cut down, they will be removed from God's garden, and they will be cast into the fire of the Outer Darkness-- where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth!
    Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, through Whose words everything came to be. Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua-- through Whom You have cleansed us and made us ready for service in Your Kingdom. Through the Holy One of Israel, in God The Son, You have created all things in our Universe. Through Him, You created all of Humankind in Your own image.
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua. Through our recognition of Your Only Begotten Son and His sacrifice, You are able to recreate us as loyal servants made in His image-- which is a perfect and faithful representation of Your own image.
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua. He is the inerrant Word of God, the Holy One, the Creator of All Things, the unerring and eternal Voice of the great I AM-- the Voice of YHWH. Before He was born on Earth as the Messiah Yeshua, He was already God The Son, living in eternal co-existence within the Holy Trinity of YHWH -- unified with both His Father and with Him Who is called the Holy Spirit.
    Blessed are You, YHWH, our Elohim, King of the Universe, the Father of Lights, the Father of Yeshua the Messiah, a begotten Son, of Whom You publically declared, "This is My Son, Whom I love, with Whom I am well pleased. Listen to Him." You are a proud Father in Heaven, and rightly so, since You are all Holiness and Light, and in You there is no darkness-- so You are pleased with the excellent performance of Your Son. On Earth in human form, He was never disobedient to Your will, never failing You, always faithful in all things. You sent Him into our world to save humanity from sin, death, and Hell-- and true to Your words, this righteous and obedient Son has become the Light of the Earth.
    Blessed are we, Your children, when we not only hear the words of Yeshua, Your Messiah, but do them. Yeshua the Messiah did not cancel the Law of the Old Covenant, and instead He has added additional laws for us! The Messiah Yeshua has declared that "It is easier for Heaven and Earth to pass away than that one dot or serif of the Law should ever prove to fail." Yeshua declared that "The one who loves Me is the one who keeps My commandments."
    Blessed are we, Your children, when we remember how You have cautioned us that "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom," and we thus turn to Your Messiah in loyalty and service before it is too late to do so. Yeshua has declared that there will come a day when it is too late to call Him "Lord, LORD," saying, "Did I not do many good works and even miracles in Your name?" On that day it is too late to call Him Lord. If we do not keep His commandments, then on the Day of Judgment He will say to us, "I never knew you, you worker of iniquity. Depart from Me into the Outer Darkness!"
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua, and in the hearing of His words, because He is the Word of God. The Word of God spoke, saying "Let there be light," and the Universe was created through Him. Today we speak again the words of Your Messiah Yeshua, and we know that He is the Word; when we repeat His words, we bring a great blessing into our Universe, the blessing of light in a world of darkness, and we remember that He has told us that His words cannot return to Him void of any effect. Hallelu-YAH! We bring light to our world in repeating His words!
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah Yeshua, when we love Him above all others, forsaking all idols and all the false gods... because it is only through Him that we can see the loving face of His proud Father in Heaven.
    Blessed are we when we remember to love God with all our hearts, with all our minds, and with all our strength... loving the Law of YHWH and the Law of Messiah Yeshua above all other things. Our Almighty God YHWH has declared to us that "The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the Word of God endures forever." Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah Yeshua, when we remember that our Messiah Yeshua has said to us, indeed, "Heaven and Earth will pass away, but My words will never pass away." Amen.
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua. Yeshua is our brave leader and Your Obedient Messiah, the God-Man Interface-- and we can be happy that He has a human face, a loving face by which we may obtain kinship with Him, thus gaining true favor from His proud Father in Heaven. We are brothers and sisters to Yeshua; we are His family, the Family of God, and we are blessed indeed.
    Blessed are we, Your children, in the gift of Your Messiah, Yeshua... and we shall dwell in the House of the LORD forever.

    "Do not think that I have come to destroy the Torah, or the Prophets. I have not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For truly I say to you, until Heaven and Earth pass away, not one dot or iota of the Torah shall fail until all shall be fulfilled."
        -- Yeshua the Messiah
, speaking in Matthew 5:17-18, as recorded by His Jewish follower Matthew, a constant companion of Yeshua and His loyal disciple, with Matthew writing in Hebrew under Divine Guidance as the hand of Almighty God.

    Personal sharing with friends and family is okay and not a real crime of any sort. Praise God! But your parents may hold a funeral service for you and declare you dead for doing so. If this happens to you, remember that our Messiah and Savior Yeshua has declared that no one can be His disciple unless he first dies to himself and is born again in the Messiah, henceforth living only for God, loving the Messiah more than father or mother, more than brother or sister.
    Yeshua says that you must be willing to lift and carry your own cross if you wish to become His follower. You must be willing to even risk being crucified in a similar way if you choose to follow Him. But it's the path of complete obedience to YHWH, His Father in Heaven (Whose Holy Name some dare to speak aloud as "Yahweh" and as "Yehovah")... and maybe it's your path too.
    Then pray for your family to know the shalom of Yeshua, the Prince of Shalom. Pray also for the peace of Jerusalem, which comes only with the arrival of Messiah Yeshua in the rescue of His Second Coming.
    After that, King Yeshua rules Jerusalem and all the Earth from the New Jerusalem. Hallelu-YAH!


The Captain of Ark Yeshua Still Uses A Life-Saving Net . . . And A Big Stick Too!

Version1a, April 19, 2008. Copyright 2008 by Roddy Kenneth Street, Jr.
Street Tracts International   -   based on material from a tract in the Truth For Southeast Asia series

    Here's a surprising fact that you maybe haven't ever realized: Did you know that Yeshua our Messiah still fishes... even though He's the rightful Captain of Spaceship Earth? Right now, He serves humanity as the Wise and Courageous Captain of Ark Yeshua, Earth's Only Lifeboat, and He keeps His life-saving net always ready for quick use... even at a mere moment's notice! It's His Rescue Net, and it gets quite a lot of use, because it's essential to His plan for planet Earth.

    Yeshua is an expert fisherman as well as the trustworthy Captain of His awesome Life-Ship. He fishes for men and women, for human beings of all sorts and of all races. Yeshua often fishes struggling human beings out of deadly waters... when they would otherwise perish in a fatal disaster. He nets people and lifts them out of a catastrophe, bringing them to safety aboard a ship I like to call Ark Yeshua.

    He's quite the Hero of the Greatest Adventure ever reported, and yet He still fishes, even today, even in our modern world. Yes, indeed! He rides quietly in His Ark, always searching for people He can rescue, and He's careful to keep that life-saving net always nearby! He'll jump up at any instant to use it successfully for another rescue. Never running out of emergencies, He always carries a Big Rescue Net aboard His ship.

    Yeshua the Messiah was once in human form as a humble carpenter on our planet Earth, but today He is a lot more like a fisherman who is casting out a worldwide net!

    If you are a borderline nut-case in need of medical help, you can be glad that Yeshua is the One Who is after you with a net, instead of those guys in the white coats, who chase people with another kind of net.

    On the other hand, if you are simply a stubborn jackass or a stiff-necked idiot, God may instead surprise you by walking up softly and walloping you in the head with a big stick! Or He may even hit you in the head with a 2" x 4" board, in order to get the jackass finally moving in the right direction. That usually happens only when you are a really sinful unbeliever or what Yeshua called "a lazy and worthless servant." You really need to start giving Him your full attention!

    I know what you're thinking. Yeshua probably learned that little trick with the 2" x 4" board during his early years, back when He was just a humble carpenter in Israel! Maybe so! One thing's for sure: Yeshua has used His construction skills to build for us a remarkably strong and sturdy Ark, a Lifeboat that He has created as part of His rescue mission to Earth... and only a very foolish and deceived person would ever fail to seek safety in that Ark.

    Here's an explanation and elaboration of our humor, made for everybody, but especially for people in foreign countries who don't quite understand the humor of the above paragraphs!

    You may recall that a former US President named Teddy Roosevelt once advised the public that a person should "walk softly and carry a big stick." I think maybe God has a stick too... a rather long one that he uses to wake up people who keep falling asleep every time they listen to a sermon! Sometimes God may have to tap you on the top of your head rather forcefully, just in order to get your attention-- to get you to wake up and see the real world.

    And sometimes He may have to extend that staff to you so that He can rescue you from your own foolish error-- when you are drowning in a pit of Earth's quicksand, or when you are about to drown in Earth's deadly waters... in a grave misfortune, or in a sea of catastrophe.

    Now, how can I say that Yeshua sails quietly with a Big Net, but that He also, at the same time, "walks softly and carries a Big Stick"...? It's like this: Yeshua is not only trying to catch a lot of fish-- He is also gathering a lot of sheep, and He's trying to lead these very dumb animals toward the safety of Heaven!

    God can take a few fishes (a group of Messianic believers) and some bread (the Word of God, the True Manna from Heaven) and with these, through Yeshua the Messiah, He works a great miracle. God takes these few fishes and not only multiplies them but transforms them. The (human) fishes that Yeshua seeks to catch are soon transformed into sheep that seek to follow after Him. We follow our Good Shepherd in the path as He leads us. As we do so, amazingly, we start to resemble-- just a little bit-- the wonderful Lamb of God!

    But sheep are really stupid animals, and that's why Yeshua carries not only a Big Net but a Big Stick.

    In fact, the Bible tells us in Zechariah 11:7 that our Good Shepherd carries 2 staves (long wooden rods) very similar to the ones carried by ancient shepherds two thousand years ago. A shepherd then had one staff used to fight off wild animals, and another that was used to guide the sheep carefully through tight spots and difficult places. Zechariah says that our Good Shepherd has one staff named "Beauty" (or "Grace") and another called "Bands." It looks to me like He must use the first staff to fight off devils and dark forces that seek to steal/kill His sheep. The other stick, "Bands," is the one He uses to guide stupid sheep through the difficult places in our lives. That's the one that He uses to hit you on the head occasionally.

    It helps you to keep going in the right direction, to stay on the path. It helps Him prod us so that we keep moving in the direction of Heaven, that safe pasture that is waiting for us at the end of our lives.

    I'd say that when Yeshua is leading a bunch of stupid sheep (His often-erring followers), it's a bit like a human being trying to ride a stubborn jackass. The donkey just doesn't want to go where it's supposed to go... and neither do His stupid sheep. That's where the Big Stick comes in mighty handy.

    You see, Yeshua expects of us that we help Him catch a lot of fish, whether it's by hook or by rook or by nook! He wants us to become fruitful trees in His Garden. He can use a former crook, or even a former snook... if He can just get you to pay attention! He's always after the big catch-- whether it's a full net, loaded up with a big catch of "153 fishes"... or a giant pen filled with a lot of rescued sheep that were saved from death just in the nick of time... or the many millions of people He can gather in through a system called the World Wide Net.

    Yeshua fishes with a big net. He knows the right spot to throw a net... just exactly where all the fish are hiding. So should we. You can get an awesome catch that way. You can get a big haul of fish and surprise yourself! You can catch a lot more than you will ever get by quietly sitting with an old fishing pole, by just waiting around for hours with a single fishing line dropped in the water... but, sadly, in the wrong spot. So I guess those of us who are Believers had all better get busy doing as He commanded...

    If you've never been caught yet by the Safety Net of Yeshua the Messiah, it's probably because you've been resisting the Truth your whole life long. But Yeshua is still extending His staff to you, even now-- a life-saving stick that you really should grab. It's a stick that can rescue you when you are otherwise going to drown in the quicksand catastrophe of life. It's a rod that can correct your erring path and guide you to safety.

    It's a rod of correction that will allow you, if you cooperate, to be lifted up and brought to safety aboard Ark Yeshua. You will otherwise perish in the stormy seas of earthly life, just like so many other lost children. Take hold of the staff of Yeshua the Messiah. Do it today, and you can be brought to safety in His eternal Life-Ship. With that staff of correction guiding you to the Truth and to His Heaven, you too can become one of the saved. Make Yeshua your Shepherd, your Captain, and your King.

    Our Messiah Yeshua is the Holy One Who alone deserves such honor and respect... when absolutely no one else does. You don't deserve it, nor do your foolish idols, nor does the Prince of This World. Give all honor and glory to the Holy One only... the Messiah Yeshua, the One to Whom all honor is due.
