YHVH gave His people prophesies in order for them (and us) to know that He is in control since the very beginning. He is not surprised by what happens in the world or in our lives. Prophecies are also for our re-assurance when we fear and doubt; it strengthens us when our faith is weak. YHVH had a plan from the beginning and Y’shua was part of His plan. How do we know if Y’shua was the prophesied Messiah?
Y’shua is the Light of the world; the Word made flesh; He is the Good Shepherd, the Bread of Life. We learned in a previous article ” Y’shua in Prophecy – Part 3 -The Servant,” that He is also the Suffering Servant, Who redeemed us with His life by being a guilt offering. It is fascinating to see how many times YHVH has revealed Y’shua to us through the prophets. It makes us marvel at Him, knowing that he had a plan of redemption from the very beginning.
In this article, we will learn that Y’shua is the Branch also. We need to know and understand all this in order to have a strong foundation, especially when we are confronted by those who have fallen away from the faith in Messiah Y’shua or those to whom Y’shua has not yet been revealed as the Messiah.
When you read that Y’shua rendered Himself as a guilt offering in Isaiah 53:10, have you considered why specifically a guilt offering? Why not a sin offering or a peace offering, for example? Is it even important?
In this study, we shall show you the significance of Y’shua being, specifically, a guilt offering. It is so amazing and confirms once again that YHVH had a plan from the beginning. We can trust Him, He’s got everything under control!
When you, as a believer in Y’shua, read the passages written in Isaiah about the servant, it is easy to see that most of these are prophecies about the Messiah Y’shua. It is about Who He is and what He came to earth to do. However, when you have to defend your point of view to a Jewish brother or an anti-missionary, it may be a different story. Do you know your Scripture well enough to do that?
