yeshua 78

“Yeshua kept silent and the high priest said to Him:
I am making you swear by the Living God to tell us if you are the Maschiach, the Son of God?”


Yeshua said to him: ” you have said it.  And I say to you, you will see the Son of Man sitting to the right of the Power and coming with clouds of Heaven.”
The priest tore his clothes and said: “He is a blasphemer! Why should we continue seeking witnesses. Have you not heard his blasphemy? What is your opinion?”

“And they said: ” He is a man of death! ( translated in Hebrew by “isch mavet”)

They spat in His face and struck Him with a fist on the cheek. They said: “prophesy to us, Maschiach! Who stuck you?””
Matthew 26:63-68 Franz Delitzsch version
At the very moment Yeshua our Messiah would quote the prophetic verse of Daniel 7: 13, He would sign His death arrest.

חָזֵ֤ה הֲוֵית֙ בְּחֶזְוֵ֣י לֵֽילְיָ֔א וַאֲרוּ֙ עִם־עֲנָנֵ֣י שְׁמַיָּ֔א כְּבַ֥ר אֱנָ֖שׁ אָתֵ֣ה הֲוָ֑ה וְעַד־עַתִּ֤יק יֹֽומַיָּא֙ מְטָ֔ה וּקְדָמֹ֖והִי הַקְרְבֽוּהִי

Daniel 7:13
Prior statement to this article
I noticed that a lot of Gentile followers of our Messiah tend to slate orthodox Jews for not acknowledging that Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel. I read a statement on social media that was quite arrogant. Somebody had stated: ” The smartest Jews all know that Yeshua is the Messiah.”

Beware, some orthodox Jews who crossed my path may not have accepted Yeshua, but they could outsmart you within a few minutes.

This is not a matter of intelligence, but rather of spiritual blindness. Instead of slating a whole community, rather pray for the veil of incomprehension be lifted. Also remember that there are Torah truths hidden to your eyes that orthodox Jews envision very easily. Be humble. You may know that Yeshua is Messiah, but you don’t know everything!
I’d advise everybody to stop judging so fast. First of all, most of you are not even aware of the requirements for being an orthodox Jew, nor have you been raised as a Jew. You are probably blind to see that secular oral traditions have prevented people from approaching the Scriptural truth that Yeshua is indeed our Messiah.

Revealing His identity as Maschiach publicly

Yeshua765

During His ministry in Galilee Yeshua chose not to reveal His true identity.

However when our rabbi performed some exorcisms, the demons already knew Him.

In Luke Chapter 4 verse 35, Yeshua rebukes a demon, asking him to shut up before he left the possessed man.
“And Yeshua rebuked it and He said, “Shut your mouth and come out of him!” And the demon threw him in the midst, and it came out from him, while it did him no harm.”
The creatures of darkness knew and were afraid of Him, and Yeshua had authority over all of them.

However, even His close disciples ( besides a few such as John, Philip, Nathanael and Peter) had a hard time to comprehend who Yeshua actually is. As I underlined it in former articles, seeing clearly that Yeshua is the Messiah was difficult in the 1st Century for the Spirit had not been given yet.
The disciples didn’t realize that the Messiah had to be mistreated and to die a very painful death before being resurrected. The words of Isaiah , chapter 53, were veiled to them. They are still sealed for many persons nowadays. Let us pray that the sight of many be opened so that they understand Hashem’s plan of Salvation.
One MUST also realize that in Jewish tradition, the character of the Maschiah is dual. The suffering Messiah, ben Yosef has so often been occulted in favor of Messiah ben David.
Yeshua incarnates both figures of the Messiah.
He is:

 

  • Maschiach ben Yosef, son of Yosef, during His first coming in the 1st Century. His Suffering has been predicted in the Tanakh in Isaiah 53 and Psalm 22.
  • Maschiach ben David, as depicted in the verses of prophet Daniel Chapter 7, verses 13 and 14)

(Whoever wants to refute that our Messiah is spoken about in Isaiah Chapter 53 and who thinks that Isaiah refers to Israel has to explain me in detail how Israel can die for Israel’s sins.)


Daniel 7:13-14 in the orthodox Jewish Bible ( English translation)


“I was beholding in visions of the night, and, hinei, one like bar enosh ( Ben Adam i.e Moschiach came with the clouds of Shomayim ( Heaven) and came to the Atik Yomin ( Ancient of Days i.e Hashem) and before Him He was brought.” Daniel 7:13, Orthodox Jewish Bible


” And there was given Him (Moschiach) dominion, and honor, and sovereignty that all people, goyim, tongues should they serve reverence as deity Him (Moschiach).

His dominion is an everlasting Kingdom, which shall not pass away and His (Messianic) Kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.” Daniel 7:14 Orthodox Jewish Bible


The verse of Daniel 7:13 being so clearly of messianic significance, I was very curious to know how orthodox Jews would interpret it. I found out that many orthodox Jews choose the messianic perspective on Daniel 7:13. Some of them claim that ” bar enosh” ( Son of Man in Aramaic) has been mistranslated and that its very meaning is just of ben Adam, “human being”.

In my opinion, ben Adam being translated as ” human being” doesn’t really make sense if you consider that this person, the Son of Man, will be given dominion, sovereignty and  honor and that all nations will serve him, as verse 14 confirms it.
I remember discussing with an orthodox Jew years ago who told me that ” anybody could be Moschiach when I mentioned Yeshua as the Messiah of Israel.

The way Daniel 7:14 is worded would dismiss this argument of  any human being a possible candidate to the person of the Messiah anyway.

Yeshua, the true Messiah of Israel, is still a threat to the religious establishment


After reflecting on the Messianic verses of Daniel 7:13-14 and the person of Yeshua as I know Him, my Lord and Savior as He revealed Himself to me, I realized that the real Yeshua ( and not His diluted version) is still a threat to the religious establishment.
The truth I am going to state will probably displease Jews and Christians, but I have to tell it anyway, for it is the truth.

  1. Yeshua’s Name is a big threat to corporate rabbinates that will keep combatting Yeshua being revealed as the Messiah to the nation of Israel, because it is not in their interest that the truth be told to the simple Jew or Israeli. Why? Well, these persons have a lot to lose: their influence, their power, their financial situation would decrease dramatically as well.
  2. Yeshua’s Name is a threat to Christianity’s corporate assemblies. The pope even teaches that it is “dangerous” to have a personal relationship with Yeshua our Messiah out of Catholic Church. Just to begin with Catholic Church, the clerics keep the crowds away from reading the Bible and also teach them that accepting Yeshua is not enough to be saved. Other corporate Christianity such as protestant and evangelical churches seem to preach the Bible, but many greedy pastors wish to influence people and take their money instead of showing them the way to Yeshua. Many people are being taught to have “figurative encounters with Yeshua” through Scriptures. Most of the leaders mentioned above ( of course there are exceptions, I didn’t say everybody) themselves do not have a single clue about who Yeshua really is.
  3.  Corporate religion, whether it is Jewish or Christian will keep you in bondage. The Son of Man has come to SET YOU FREE.

In conclusion: you MUST meet Yeshua and experience Him as a REAL person, because our Messiah is ALIVE and He WANTS a relationship with you!

No matter if you are a Jew or a Gentile, there is only ONE PATH to Salvation!

If you haven’t done it yet, it is not too late. Call upon Yeshua’s Name. Repent of your sins and accept Him as your Lord and Savior.

May He bless all of you who are reading this article. 


Amen.

Atheists or agnostics?

The Name of Yeshua, our Lord and Savior


Please note:


Neither is there Salvation in any other: for there is none other name under Heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Acts 4:12

Many people in this world pretend to be atheists and brag about it. Actually I’ve met a few of them. I don’t think that “atheist” is the even the right word to define them, because the deeper I dig into a dialogue involving God with them, the more I am convinced that one could rather define them as “ignorant of God”, agnostics.


To the persons stating angrily: “Where is your God? I can’t see Him”, I object: “It is not because you are blind to see that He is not here.”


Our sight automatically opens when our hearts and motives are pure.


Yeshua said on the Sermon on the Mount: “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” (Matthew 5:8)


These are not just empty words. I experienced them as a reality in my own life.


The accusatory finger

Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker— 

            An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! 

            Will the clay say to the potter, ‘What are you doing?’ 

            Or the thing you are making say, ‘He has no hands’? (Isaiah 45:9)
It truly amuses me when people, who are usually filled with lots of anger and frustrations point an accusatory finger at the Creator. 

The particle of dust accuses the One who created it. How ironical is that?



What are these people usually angry about?

They are stating that God is responsible for religious wars, hypocrisy, abuse, cruelty and so on…

In fact, they are all unknowingly pointing at the very root of the problem: sin.


God did NOT create the world they are complaining about. Man, in its wickedness transformed it into a mess.
In the face of death and danger


“The fool has said in his heart: “there is no God.” (Psalm 14:1)



Many atheists have a boastful behavior. Many of the ones I have been discussing with have shown much arrogance in trying to prove the point that there is no God.

However, there are so many testimonies of blatant atheists who changed their behavioral patterns in the face of death or imminent danger.

They are actually calling :”please God help me”. Some of them are adding: “God, whoever you are, please help me…”


There are numerous testimonies of people accepting Yeshua as their Messiah in the last minutes of their lives. A catholic nun who was teaching us at primary school stated that these people were called “the workers of the last hour” and that they had experienced mercy in the same way the criminal on the cross who was next to Yeshua did.


In the face of death, all masks are falling. You cannot keep boasting and bragging with arrogance as you did before.


I would like to address today to all the people who know about Yeshua and His Salvation, but who think they have enough time to repent. Please REPENT NOW. You might not be given a second chance! 


Be a truth-seeker


“You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32


You might feel lost right now, not knowing where to search. After all, there are so many religions and philosophies that promise you heaven or illumination or quantities of good other things. There are so many misleading doctrines inspired by New Age.


How can you access the Living God?



The Living God has been revealed to Israel in the Bible. 


One can access Him through Yeshua our Messiah.


It is one thing to know the Bible…knowing the Bible ( even by heart and in its original language) will not get you saved.


What does that mean? It means that you need to have a personal relationship with Yeshua our Messiah. Will you make Him your King today?


Ask Him to save you and He will.


May you all be blessed by your read.

In His overwhelming peace-Another visitation

Dear brothers and sisters, I was very blessed today with a short visitation from our Lord. This joy I have in my heart, I want to share with you all. May Yeshua bless you all in abundance:)


“He who has my commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves me. He will be loved by my Father and I will love him and manifest myself to Him.”


John 14:21



After a good night of rest, I woke up with a wonderful sense of peace. Yeshua was welcoming me so warmly in the presence of the Spirit. It was really reassuring after being confronted with people who rejected the Truth.

I knew in this moment that I had made the right choice in obeying Yeshua’s command. As I stepped out, Yeshua spoke to me :

« I forgive ignorance, but people have to recover from their ignorance, because there comes a time when it will be too late. »

I looked up to the sun and in this very moment, as I expected it least, the Son of Man was standing here, a few meters above me. His head was covered and He was wearing a white robe. His skin was tan. He was looking at me with a warm smile on His Face. He had pretty much the same appearance that He had on His first visit, in November 2014.

My vision only lasted a few seconds but Yeshua’s presence was felt very strong.

Yeshua spoke to me :

« Why are you so surprised to see me, my child ? I am THAT CLOSE to you. You must expect to see me.

Do you remember how many times you requested to see me again, and even in tears ?

Now that I am before you, why are you so much surprised ?

Beloved, you’ll see more, gradually. Have trust. I am preparing you. »

Praying efficiently

You have been praying for months, maybe years and you have the impression to be unheard. God seems so distant, so far away from your life. Nothing seems to happen when you do pray and sometimes you are wondering if the Living God even exists. You have come to a point of discouragement and you want to give up.
Don’t worry. I have been there for 49 years of my life…until Yeshua approached me, last year in 2014, at a time I was facing a quite desperate situation.

In my most recent release, An Encounter with Yeshua, I gave my testimony to the world about Yeshua (Jesus of Nazareth), our Messiah.
Do not give up, my friends. Change the way you are praying and you will obtain concrete results.
How? Let me enumerate a few points to take into account.
First point: the KEY.


A lot of people in the world are addressing vaguely to some “God”, somewhere in the universe without having a clue about who God actually is.

To have access to the Living God, one must know WHO he is praying to.

Yeshua our Messiah is the person who will give you access to Abba, the Father, the God of Israel, revealed in the Bible. Whoever tells you the contrary is lying.

Our Messiah said: “I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE. NO ONE comes to the Father except through ME.” John 14:6
The first thing you will have to do is to invite Yeshua our Messiah into your life. But you will only be able to do so if you sincerely repent of your sins. Sins are the barrier that prevent you from accessing His grace.

Ok, so now we have a starting point! After repenting of your sins, ask Yeshua to become your friend and give Him your heart.
If you are really sincere about your quest, our Lord will give you a new heart and come live inside of you. You will receive His Holy Spirit.

Like in any friendship, you will need to cultivate it and be sincere about it. Yeshua is your best friend. You can trust Him and tell Him anything.
Second point: your motivation in prayer


Before addressing to our Lord, check your motives.

Is your request conform to His Will?

You are, of course, entitled to ask: “how do I know that my request is according to His Will?”

Check His Word. The Bible should be your code of conduct, with the help of the Holy Spirit.
Third point: the way you are praying


How do you feel about prayer? Do you feel that it is an annoying obligation or do you rejoice in advance to be able to talk to your best friend?

A lot of people are (wrongly) teaching that you have to bow in a specific way and to adopt specific body postures. None of this is actually true. Ritualized prayer is the contrary of efficient prayer, because it doesn’t come from the heart. There is nothing spontaneous in it.

I might shock some of you, but I do not bow, I do not use specific words (with an exception for the Lord’s Prayer, Our Father). I speak to my best friend, spontaneously, and I speak to Him anywhere: at home, in public transport, in parks, in the middle of crowds etc…)

One secret that I learnt thanks to the Holy Spirit is continuous prayer. I am permanently connected to my Lord and Savior, any time, night and day.

Believe me, my requests are answered.
You don’t have to be at a church or at a synagogue to pray. You can pray anywhere. You don’t have to follow corporate models of prayers to speak to Him.
Fourth point: how much determined are you to do His Will?


Be honest in answering this question…are you asking for your own, selfish purposes, or are you determined to do His Will? Does your demand honor our Lord? Will you keep following Him even if He denies your request?

If you answered yes to the two last questions, your request has more chances to be answered.
Proverbs 16:3 says: “Commit your work to the Lord and your plans will be established.”

Fifth point: persistence in prayer


“Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened for you.”, says our Lord in Matthew 7:7.
During Summer holidays, a friend of mine was wondering why we always have to insist with God…she found it tiring. I replied to her that this is what faith is about. It is normal that God tests our consistence in prayer.

When I come up with a precise request, I also trust in our Lord’s perfect timing. I dare to insist when I really want something.

I am perfectly conscious that my first motivation must ALWAYS be to obey His command. The rest will follow.

You must also be deeply detached from the outcome. Whatever our Lord’s answer will be, be in total acceptance of it. Even when He says “no”, He has prepared something better for you.
Also remember that all your requests to our Father in Heaven should be made in Yeshua’s Name.

You are now ready to pray more efficiently. As you understood it well, your personal relationship with our Lord will determine the outcome of your prayers. Come to Him with a neat heart. Trust Him in all your ways and He will take care of you.
May you all be blessed in abundance. In Yeshua’s mighty Name. Amen.
