Thoughts and Commentary on Today's ReadingHave you ever wondered where Yahshua was mentioned in the writings of Moses? The writings of Moses include the first five books of the Bible, also known as the Torah. Where did Moses mention Yahshua? Yet, Christ said that Moses wrote of Him:
John 5:46 - "For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed Me; for he wrote of Me."
Moses wrote of Yahshua! This means that Yahshua is mentioned in the Torah… but where?
Yahshua’s Name is actually found in 77 Old Testament Bible verses – seven is the number of Yahweh’s Perfect Salvation – and it is doubled in the number of times it (as there are two 7's in 77). But because Bible translators thought the Saviour's Name was "Jesus", they saw the word "Yahshua" in htese verses and didn't recognize that it was His Name. So they translated His Name, in the Old Testament, giving the meaning of His Name, instead of writing His Name into the verse, as it should have been.
The Saviour's Name is Strong's Concordance number 3444, which is the Hebrew word "Yahshua", which means "Salvation" of Yahweh.
The Saviour's Name first appears in Genesis 49:18 (Genesis was written by Moses) and is shown in yellow below:
The following Old Testament verse contain our Saviour's lovely Name, many of which are found in the Torah (Genesis through Deuteronomy, which was written by Moses):
“Yahweh is my Strength and song, and He is become my Salvation:H3444 He is my God, and I will prepare Him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt Him.”
“But Jeshurun waxed fat, and kicked: thou art waxen fat, thou art grown thick, thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of His Salvation.H3444.”

“My Elohim is my Rock; I shall take refuge in Him; my Shield, and the horn of my Yahshua, my high tower, and my refuge! My Savior, You shall save me from violence (Hamas).”

In the following verses, I'm just going to restore His Name to the verse, where it should be, instead of just rendering it by its meaning, as translators mistakenly did:

So, when we read in John 5:46, that Yahshua said Moses wrote of Him, now we may see that he did just that... And it wasn't just in symbology! Moses wrote of Yahshua by Name - as did the Old Testament prophets!
