Jesus has opened wide the gates of captivity.

Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; save me, and I shall be saved, for You are my praise. Jeremiah 17:14.

Save, yasha’ Strong’s # 3467. To rescue, save, defend; to free, preserve, avenge, deliver, help. The verb is a one word description of God’s response to the needs of all humanity. God choose a form of this verb to be His Son’s name: Yeshua, meaning “He shall save.”  man without god

The original thought of yasha was “to release,”  “to open wide.” Our Deliverer is the One who opened wide the gates of captivity, released and rescued us, and continually defends and preserves us.

“And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, (Savior, the name Jesus means “Yahweh is Salvation.”) for He will save His people from their sins.” Matt. 1:21.

    In Jeshua we have put our hope and trust. His Father, the Only One God, was willing to provide him for the whole world and to let him be the mediator between God and man. Him be thanks and glory.

    God bless.

    The more I read your word studies, Manny, the more I am loving the Hebrew language. That the verb for “save” points us directly to our Savior is wonderful.

    “Our Deliverer is the One who opened wide the gates of captivity, released and rescued us, and continually defends and preserves us.”

    AMEN!
