Netzarim, Original followers of Yeshua & His 12
Do you really want Mashiach Now? Many people have that cry in their lips, but do not mean it. In the Amida which is a set of prayers composed by eighteen different prayers, we find at the end of it a prayer asking for Mashiach to come, to reveal Himself, and to bring Yeshuah / Salvation to our people, to our lives, to bring true Shelema (peace) to us and for all Israel His people.
The text says: “May the Shoot of David blossom and flourish, and let the light of Yeshuah / Salvation shine forth according to Your word, for we await Your Yeshuah all every day. We praise You, O HaShem, who causes the light of Yeshuah to come.”
With that prayer in mind, we should not be affraid at all to ask God to reveal the Holy Mashiach to us, HaShem is waiting for us to ask for that, and He will reveal him (the Mashiach).
To really want and yearn for Mashiach means that we need to learn more about such wonderful person, His birth place, His acts, His walk with Torah, and most important how the Hebrew Scriptures describe Him. We will learn two important prophesies here.
We learn that the Holy Mashiach is to be born in Israel, Beit-Lechem, a Jewish town close to Jerusalem 2000 years ago, the Hebrew Scriptures says: Micha 5.1 “But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, being small among the clans of Judah, out of you one will come forth to me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth are from of old, from everlasting.”
Yes, indeed Mashiach is to be a Sabra, a true Jewish settler! Let see what Jewish tradition thought of such passage: "And you Bethlehem-Ephrathah who are too little to be counted among the thousands of the house of Judah, from you in My name shall come forth the Messiah who is to be ruler in Israel and whose name has been called from eternity, from the days of old." [Targum Jonathan on Mikah 5:1 in the Tanach]
Second prophesy tell us that Mashaich will become our Korban / Sacrifice for sin the Hebrew Scriptures speak: "Who has believed what we have heard? To whom is the arm of HaShem revealed? For before Him he grew up like a young plant, like a root out of dry ground. He had no form or beauty. We saw him, but his appearance did not attract us. He was despised and shunned by men, a man of pains and familiar with illness; like one from whom we would hide our faces. He was despised and we had no regard for him. In truth, it was our infirmities he bore, and our pains that he suffered; yet we regarded him as punished and afflicted by God. He was wounded because of our sins and crushed because of our iniquities. The chastisement he bore made us whole, and through his wounds we are healed. We all like sheep went astray; we turned, each one, to his own way. Yet HaShem laid on him the guilt of all of us… After this ordeal, he will see satisfaction. By his knowledge my righteous servant makes many righteous; it is for their sins that he suffers. Therefore I will give him a share with the mighty; for he exposed himself to death and was numbered among the sinners. For he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors." [Tanach, Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 53]
The Rabbis said: His name is ‘the leper scholar,’ as it is written, Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him a leper, smitten of God, and afflicted. Babylonian Talmud: Tractate Sanhedrin Folio 98a.
Read your Tanach (Hebrew Scriptures), and ask HaShem to reveal King Messiah to ou today!
