This is the usual spelling of
Y’shua, which is actually a short form of the Name Y’hoshua (Joshua).
The four letters of the Name, Y’shua, are YOD, SHIN, WAW, and AYIN which
are consonants. The waw in Hebrew is often used as a vowel (and here it
becomes a U).
The Ayin is a consonant, but it is
a breathing sound only. A vowel may be added to Ayin, as here, to
provide the A sound. So remember, whenever we talk about the letters of
the Name of Y’shua, we are talking about the four writ-ten Hebrew
consonants, YOD, SHIN, WAW, AYIN.)
ISAIAH 52:13 to 53:12
When Yacov Rambsel discovered and
pointed out the phrase, Y’shua shmi,
in Isaiah 53, critics scoffed. “What is that?” they said.
“Y’shua is only four letters and you will find that at random, anywhere,
even in the telephone book, if you have enough letters in your
database.” But Rambsel gives countless examples of the encoded Name,
particularly in messianic
Jews have criticized Rambsel,
saying, “And even if Y’shua is hidden in the text of Isaiah 53, that
does not mean it is referring to Jesus. Y’shua is quite a common name.”
Faced with such criticism, Rambsel
was led by the Holy Spirit who inspired the Scriptures, and he made an
amazing discovery in this major Messianic passage (Isaiah 52:13 to
53:12). In these 15 verses,
he found the Hebrew
names of 43 people and phrases, all connected with the Person and death
of Y’shua - encoded at various intervals. Some read left to right,
others right to left :-
Nazarene Messiah Shiloh Galilee The disciples
Peter Simon John Matthew Andrew Philip
Thomas James James Simon Matthias Thaddaeus
(encoded 3 times -
there were 3 Marys at the cross
His cross Moriah
Let Him be crucified Passover Atonement-Lamb
Bread Wine Seed Water Obed Lamp
of the Lord
Jesse Herod Caesar Pilate Annas
Levites From Zion His signature The Evil Roman
34 of these names are encoded at
small intervals - between 6 and 50 letters. 9 are at intervals between
51 and 295 letters.
Sometimes the Name Y’shua is
encoded at very small intervals, as in Ruth 1:1 (5-letter intervals.)
In other places it is large, but significant intervals. At least
Y’shua has been discovered, encoded at
intervals in the five books of Moses.
The encoding may be left to right,
or right to left. And encoding has been discovered, not only in
equidistant letters, but also in equidistant words. (Usually the first
letter of words spaced at equal distances.)
Beginning in Exodus 12:27, which
speaks of the Lord’s Passover, we find three words encoded: Starting
with the last letter of the fifth word, and reading the last letter of
each subsequent word, we find ha’rachel (the Lamb) spelt out. We
find also at 5-letter intervals, the word Mashiach (Messiah), and
also, starting in this verse, the Name
spelt at 777-letter intervals.
One incredible example of
equidistant words, starts with Genesis 22:8 where it says, “God will
provide for Himself the lamb for the burnt offering.”
Starting with the SHIN (sh) in the
2nd last word, the first letter of every 19th word spells out YSHUA.
(YOD, SHIN, WAW, AYIN). And not only right to left, but also left to
right - from the same SHIN:
19 words U 19 words
SH 19 words
Y 19 words
19 words Y 19 words
SH 19 words
U 19 words
And if that is not incredible,
from the same SHIN
in Gen. 22:8, we discover Y’shua spelt out again, in BOTH directions,
but this time at intervals of 51 words.
U 51 words
SH 51 words
Y 51 words
51 words Y 51 words
SH 51 words
U 51 words
And in the
the first letter of every 5th word, spells out
And the first letters of adjacent words spells out hallu
THE NUMERICAL VALUE OF
THE NAME Y’SHUA
I pointed out in Prophetic
Alert #122, the total numerical value of the four letters of Y’SHUA
Now Yacov Rambsel has discovered in the Torah, the Name Y’shua spelt out
at 386-letter intervals - TWELVE TIMES.
In Leviticus 22:14, not only is
Y’shua spelt out at 386-letter intervals, but adjacent to the Name, two
more words are also spelt out at 386-letter intervals -
In two places at least, the
combined Name -
YHWH-Y’SHUA has been
In Genesis 49:18, where the text
is, “I have waited for Your Salvation,” the combined Name is spelt out
at 180-letter intervals. (The word for ‘Your salvation’ here is
In Exodus 15:27 we have
Y’SHUA-YHWH spelt out at 235-letter intervals.
In Psalm 22:13, at 26-letter
intervals is the phrase, “Y’shua cut in pieces.”
In Exodus 38:24 where it speaks of
thirty shekels, the coded phrase is, “Y’shua cut off.”
In Zechariah 11:12 about the
thirty pieces of silver, both the Name Y’shua and the word Pesach
(Passover) are encoded.
In Daniel 9:26 where it says
“Messiah shall be cut off,” the Name Y’shua is again spelt out.
In Leviticus 4:3 it speaks of the
ANOINTED priest, and a sin offering. The encoded words are “Behold,
In Psalm 20:5, “We sing for joy
over Your victory and in the Name of our God we will set up our
banners.” The encoded message is b’Y’shua veha’av. “In Y’shua
and the Father.”
Here’s another to grip your mind:
In the Book of Ruth, as we have
already mentioned, Y’SHUA is encoded from ch. 1:1, at 5-letter
intervals. And then from the AYIN, the last letter in the Name, Y’SHUA
is again encoded at 77 letter intervals -
77 SH 77 U
And from the same Ayin in the
Name, spelt out at 15-letter intervals is - OSHIAH, “He will save.” Then
in Ruth 1:8, at 12-letter intervals, is - MELEK Y’SHUA - “King Y’shua.”
Now go back to
where it speaks of Joseph being sold for 20 pieces. (Joseph is a type of
Y’shua, who was also sold - but for 30 pieces.) From this verse we have
Y’SHUA encoded at intervals of
(7 x 7), reading right to left.
Then 20 verses later, in Genesis
38, we discover the complete 4-generation genealogy of Boaz through to
David. The four generations all have 3-letter names in Hebrew, and all
four are encoded left to right, at 49-letter intervals. (Note, 49 is 7 x
49 A 49 Z
OBED O 49 B
JESSE Y 49
SH 49 Y
DAVID D 49 V
Now from the same passage, Genesis
38:14, we have “The Messiah” spelt out at
77 SH 77
Now if we link up the 49-letter
encodings in Genesis 37 & 38 with Ruth 1:1 where Y’shua is encoded at
we must ask, “Has Someone been
designing numerical phenomenon into the fabric of Scripture?”
And we reply without hesitation,
“Of course! It’s the handiwork of the Holy Spirit. It is the signature
of the Master Designer, YHWH-Y’SHUA, the great Creator.”
Just a couple more examples:
1 Samuel 17:32
starting with the first YOD in the phrase, “Your servant will go,” we
have Y’SHUA encoded at intervals of every 12 words (first letter of each
SH 12w U
every 12th word, and
this sentence spells out ...
lu mush ohav hu Yeshua.
“I pray, feel the love; He is
Zechariah 2 & 3 is speaking about
the temple and Joshua the high priest, about Satan accusing, and also
about “My Servant the Branch.” From v 2:13, encoded is DAVID at
And in the same area of Zechariah,
we also have encoded, JESSE, LEAH, THE PROPHET, the STONE, the RAM, MY
TREE (cross), and THE MANNA —
All encoded at 77-letters intervals.
Y’shua is the Root of Jesse -
Isaiah 11:10. Leah is the mother of Judah, His tribe. The prophet like
unto me (Deut 18:15). He is the Ram of sacrifice that God provided (Gen
These are a few examples, but
Rambsel’s 264-page book is full of examples from all over the Old
Testament. It’s thrilling! I stand in awe of the handiwork of
It gives me this assurance - the
One who has so intricately woven the details of the fabric of the
Scriptures - is the same One who knows the details of my life, and who
is working those details of my life into the fabric of His purpose.
The knowledge that God has so
woven the Name of His beloved Son, Y’shua, throughout the Scriptures is
tremendously encouraging to me personally. Since be-coming acutely
aware of the meaning and value of the original, God-given Hebrew Name of
the Saviour, and daring to use it regularly, I have often been
criticized, and even vilified from some quarters. But as Y’shua is the
Name given by Yahweh to the Son, it must be very important; and I am
indeed blessed when they persecute me for His Name’s sake!
Miryam, by the way, never heard
our English pronunciation, “Jesus.” Gabriel told her to call His Name,
because He would
save His people from their sins.
Only from the meaning
of His Name do we understand the significance of these words.
Y’shua means, “Yahweh is salvation.”
Just this morning, in Australia, a
believer asked me, “What is this word Y’shua?” After I explained that it
is the Saviour’s original Hebrew Name, she said, “Oh! I never ever heard
that Name before.” That’s why I proclaim the Name,
God’s people have a right to know the truth, so that they come to love
and reverence that holy Name.
“Therefore (because He stooped so low), God exalted Him to the
highest place, and gave Him the Name that is above every name, that at
the Name of Y’shua every knee should bow - in heaven and on earth and
under the earth - and every tongue confess that Y’shua the Messiah is
Lord (the Heavenly Master), to the glory of YHWH, God the
Father.” (Philippians 2:9-10)
Amen, and Amen!
How Do these amazing
facts affect Us?
Think of it - the newly-discovered
facts actually prove that the Bible is God’s inspired Book! Then too,
think of the many other proofs of the divine inspiration of the Bible,
such as: Fulfilled Prophecy, Scientific Biblical statements, the
Character of Christ, Archaeology, and the Testimony of Vital Personal
Think also of the marvellous
Unity, the Inexhaustibility, the Indestructibility, and the matchless
Influence of the Bible, and how each of these conclusively proves the
supernatural origin of the Scriptures. Think of how many different kinds
of proofs there are! Think of the abundance of evidence God has given
us! Certainly we know, beyond a shadow of doubt, that the Bible is true!
(Unfortunately we do not have
sufficient space to elaborate on the interesting proofs mentioned above.
Each of those subjects constitutes a great field of study in itself;
therefore we cannot touch upon any of them here.) God has given us all
of these and other convincing proofs, so that we might know and
acknowledge that the Bible is His own precious Word!
However, it is not enough for us
to merely acknowledge that the Bible is God’s Word and let it go at
that! No, that in itself is not sufficient. We must go one step farther
- we must open the Bible and see what God says in His book - we must
know, believe, and obey the instructions He has given us! If the Bible
were a mere human production we would be under no obligation to give any
special attention to it.
The Bible, however, is not a human
production - it is a God-given book, therefore we are accountable to God
to make good use of it! We are not free to casually lay this book aside,
or to turn a deaf ear to what it says. All of us know that the Bible is
God’s Word, therefore it is our DUTY and RESPONSIBILITY to “search the
Scriptures,” and to give time and attention to what God has written. If
we neglect and ignore God’s Word we are without excuse!
Let us turn to the Bible with an
open mind and an open heart and see what God’s message is. We find that
the Bible gives a sad picture of the human race! It gives us a
description of ourselves as we appear in our natural condition - it
tells us just what we look like in God’s sight!
By nature we are sinners!
“All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.”
“By nature we are (spiritually) dead.”
(Eph. 2:1). “(Spiritual) death passed upon all men, for all have
sinned.” (Rom 5:12). By nature we
are “‘guilty before God” (Rom. 3:19)
- we are “condemned already” (John 3:18)
- we are “separated” and “far off” from God
(Isaiah 59:2, Eph. 2:13), and are
in “darkness” (1 Pet. 2:9),
“without Christ,” “without hope” (Eph.
2:12), and “without peace.”
By nature all of us are hopeless
If this were the only message in
the Bible it would be tragic indeed, but fortunately God has another
message - a message of “good news” for lost, needy humanity! God has
provided a way of salvation! Christ, the Son of God, paid the debt of
sin by His substitutionary death upon the cross.
“While we were yet sinners, Christ died for
us.” (Rom. 5:8).
“His own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree (cross).”
Christ rose from the dead,
ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of
(Ephesians 1:20). Now all
who receive Him, all who believe on Him have spiritual life, instead of
“He who has the Son has life; and he who
does not have the Son of God does not have life.”
(1 John 5:12)
“He who believes on the Son has everlasting
life; and he who does not believe in the Son shall not see life.”
If we receive the Lord Jesus
Christ as our personal Saviour, we become “children of God,” and are
“born of God”
our sins are forgiven
we are “not condemned”
we are made “nigh” unto God
we are “in His marvellous light”
(1 Pet. 2:9),
we have a “blessed hope”
2:13), and we have “the
peace of God which passes all understanding.”
Our Master “is able to save to the
that is, He is able to save the greatest sinner - the one who is
farthest from God!
“Whosoever shall call upon the Name of the Lord
shall be saved.” (Acts 2:21)
Christ is knocking at the door of
your life even now!
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” (Revelation
