The prophet Yeshayahu sees the future glory of Israel, “He has clothed me in garments of YESHUAH (salvation) and has wrapped me with a robe of “righteousness” (Tzedek). It is fitting that the two go together, when we accept Yeshua as our LORD and Savior, we receive “righteousness” through our faith in HIM. We come under a “right-relationship” with him now, where before we were “unrighteous” living in sin, now, we are in right-standing with Him, and therefore, we are “Tzadikim” (righteous ones). Even though we still have our sin nature, God still looks at us as “righteous.”
“Say to the daughter of Zion, “Lo, your YESHUAH comes” (62:11) Yeshua came to Zion, but many in Zion did not receive him, yet He will return in the future, and then, ALL Zion will receive him. The future is bright for Israel, and we will be a part of that future, keep praying for the peace of Yerushalayim, but real, permanent peace will only come when Yeshua returns. He will return to his people to conquer his enemies, rescue his bride, and reign for one thousand years, and then more. Seems like a very good future.
Yeshua promised his “Ruach HaKodesh” (his Holy Spirit) He was the “sent one” by the Father, yet he also promised another “sent one”. The difference between Yeshua and the Ruach HaKodesh is that when Yeshua was on earth, he could only be in one place at one time his is the “comforter” that was promised. Yes, his followers would be persecuted, cast out of churches and synagogues, and this continues today.
To be a believer is to be “persona non-grata” in some places. Can we endure this? Another title for the Holy Spirit is “Ruach HaEmet” (The Spirit of Truth) since it was also one of the titles of Yeshua, the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Are we following the Spirit of Truth as he leads us through the Written Truth? He is here to guide us through. , while the Ruach HaKodesh, is EVERYWHERE, ALL THE TIME.
Yeshua says that he is leaving and going back to the Father, yet he will pray for those who are not there present as well as those present. This is true for today since we were not there present when He ascended to heaven, His blessings are upon ALL believers as well, as we are the generation of Faith.
