YAHshua (JESUS CHRIST)
Awake, hear the sound of His horn -
His coming is soon!!!
Shema Israel Messiah is on His way -
Listen for His Shofar
Baruch ata Adonai, Elohaynu Melech ha'olam asher kidshanu bemitzvotav vetzivanu lishmo'ah
Blessed are You O L-rd, Our G-d and King of the Universe, who has made us holy with
mitzvot and has instructed us to hear the call of the shofar. Tof the Shofar are as
Aleph. Tekiah: lit. "blast" one long blast with a very clean consistent tone.
With a long blast did the Aleph, the Divine One throw open the gate to the Genesis.
Bet. Shevarim: lit. "broken sound" three short calls together as long as tekiah.
With a Bet does the Shofar cry out for the destruction of its Holy Temples.
Gimel. Teruah: lit. "alarm" a rapid series of very short notes generally three
series of three that together total one tekiah. With the Gimel we see HaShem lifting up
His people as the teruah sounds the alarm, return to Me I will hid thee.
Dalet. Tekiah Gedolah: lit "the great tekiah" a single blast that is held as
long as you can hold it. With the Dalet - the gate or door is shut, and the people of
HaShem are safe in Him. Messiah YAHshua is that Door!
Hear, O Israel, the Lord is One.
Blessed is the name of His glorious kingdom Forever and ever. And you shall love the Lord
your God, With all your heart, with allyour soul, and with all your possessions. And
these words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart And you shall teach them
to your children And speak of them when you sit in your home, When you walk up the way,
When you lie down and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand
And they shall be Tefillin between your eyes And you shall write them On the doorposts
of your home And upon your gates

How Can I Receive the Messiah Into My Heart and Life?
The G-d of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob created you to have a personal relationship with
Himself and to enjoy His abundant life! In Proverbs 16:4 [it is written in the Jewish
Bible] "The Lord has made all things for His purpose [His own pleasure]." In
Psalm 16:11 it is written, "...At Thy right hand there are pleasures for ever
more."Sin (the transgression or breaking of G-d's law) separates you from a personal
relationship with G-d and His abundant life. Sin also causes spiritual death! In Isaiah
59:2a it is written, "But your iniquities [your sins] have separated between you and
your G-d." Man was created to have fellowship with G-d, but stubbornly chose to go
his own independent way. This self-will (expressed by either active rebellion or passive
indifference toward G-d) is what the Bible calls "sin." Sin separates you from
G-d and causes spiritual death, guilt, lack of peace, frustration, etc. In Ezekiel
(Yechezekel) 18:4 it is written, "...the soul that sinneth, it shall die [spiritual
death]." In First Kings (Melachim) 8:46 it is written, "...for there is no man
that sinneth not."
You cannot remove sin by your own human efforts. In Isaiah 64:5 it is
written, "...all our righteousness [our self-righteousness] are as filthy
rags...." In Proverbs 14:12 it is written, "There is a way which seemeth right
unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death [spiritual separation from
G-d]." Man's plan is to remove his own sin by his own self-righteousness (i.e., to
outweigh his bad deeds by his "good" deeds, such as religious "works,"
human philosophies, etc.). Man's self-righteousness is a 'filthy garment" in the
sight of a holy G-d.
Sin can be removed by faith (emunah, believing what G-d says).
Righteousness (right standing with G-d) comes by faith. In Genesis (Bereishit) 15:6 it is
written, "And he [Abraham] believed [had faith] in the L-rd; and He counted it
[Abraham's faith] to him for righteousness." Faith must be placed in the blood
atonement. Atonement means a "covering" for sin. In Leviticus (Vayikra) 17:11 it
is written, "...for it is the blood that maketh an atonement [covering] for the
G-d has provided the blood of atonement today through a perfect
sacrifice: The One who is known as the Messiah. Messiah means "anointed" one. In
Isaiah 53:5 it is written, "But He was wounded for our transgressions [rebellions],
He was bruised for our iniquities [moral evils]: The chastisement [punishment] of our
peace [welfare] was upon Him; and with His stripes [wounds, blood] we were healed [atoned
for]." In Abel we see atonement for a man as it is written in Genesis (Bereishit)
4:4, "And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock...." During
Passover, we saw an atonement for a family as it is written in Exodus [Shemot] 12:13,
"...when I see the blood, I will pass over you...." During Yom Kippur, we see
atonement for a nation, as it is written in Leviticus 16:30a, "For on that day shall
the priest make an atonement for you." The Messiah brings atonement for all who
believe, as it is written in Isaiah 53:6. "But the Lord has caused the iniquity [the
sins] of us all to fall [to focus] on Him."
How can you know the Messiah YAHshua? You must ask the Messiah YAHshua
into your heart and life in order to have the blood of atonement, to have a personal
relationship with G-d, and to enjoy His abundant life (the Messiah will not force His way
into your life; He desires to be invited). In Joel 3:5 it is written, "...Whosoever
shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered [saved]...."
If you are desiring to ask the Messiah YAHshua into your heart and life,
you may do so by following these simple steps. Pray to G-d in your own words (prayer is just talking to G-d).
Confess that you have sinned against G-d and that you are truly sorry for it.
Ask the Messiah YAHshua into your heart and life to cleanse you with His blood of
atonement. Thank Him by faith for doing this!
The following is a sample prayer which you might pray.
"Dear G-d, I confess that I have greatly sinned against You and I'm sorry for it.
Messiah YAHshua, please come into my heart and life and cleanse me with Your blood of
atonement. Thank You for doing this according to Your Word."
If you have prayed this prayer and mean it, G-d has promised you many wonderful things,
including the following:
Your sins are atoned for (covered, forgiven) (Isaiah 53:6.)
You receive righteousness (right-standing with G-d) by faith (Genesis 15:6; Habakkuk 2:4).
You enter into a personal relationship with G-d and you become a child of G-d (Jeremiah
You receive eternal life (Joel 3:5; Daniel 12:2).
G-d's Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) enters your life! (Ezekiel 11:19; Zechariah 12:10)
If you have made a decision to accept the Messiah into your life and you are Jewish,
congratulations! Continue to be Jewish and please try to find a local Messianic synagogue
to attend, for you have just became a completed Jew. If you are non-Jewish and have made a
decision to accept the Messiah YAHshua into your life, please find a local Bible-believing
church to attend or a Messianic synagogue. Regardless of whether you are Jewish or
non-Jewish, if you have made a decision to accept the Messiah YAHshua into your life, I
would like to hear from you.
