Yeshuah Birth fulfills the Tanach (the laws), the prophets, & the Psalms. 



Shalom to your brothers and sisters in Yeshua; on behalf of ONMI, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year 2024. I want to thank God for bringing, providing, and protecting us throughout 2023. May His name be the most significant thing in your life as we reflect on the birth of the Messiah.   As we close the year 2023, there are so many things to thank the Lord for, especially thanking Him for our Salvation as the scripture declares, “Not by the work of righteousness we have been saved, but according to His mercy He saves us by renewing and regeneration of the Holy Ghost.”  Titus 3: 5-7
If Yeshuah is not the Messiah, then His birth, death, and resurrection are meaningless, and our faith is in vain. But this is not the case! As a Messianic believer and follower of Yeshua, I believe that he was not born on December 25th, according to scripture; otherwise, this date of December 25 will contradict the prophecies about his coming. Nevertheless, He was born God-man. History and the devilish pundits have no power to deny his birth, death, and resurrection. Let us explore how his birth fulfills all the prophecies spoken of His coming together.  
 


Yeshuah fulfilled all the ancient Biblical prophecies, and his 33 years of public ministry on earth gave credence.

The Spirit of Adonai Elohim is upon me Because Adonai has anointed me to announce good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom to the captives, to let out into light those bound in the dark, to proclaim the year of the favor of Adonai and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, yes, provide for those in Tziyon who mourn, giving them garlands instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, a cloak of praise instead of a heavy spirit, so that they will be called oaks of righteousness planted by Adonai, in which he takes pride. They will rebuild the ancient ruins, restore sites long destroyed, renew the ruined cities Destroyed many generations ago, and validate the Tanach, the laws, the prophets, and the Psalms. 




  Not only on Christmas but throughout the year, focusing on the Messianic prophecies of Yeshua can bring great joy as believers in Yeshuah realize how He fulfilled prophecy in His birth, life, death, and resurrection. The Messianic prophecies are central to understanding the Lord’s place in Biblical history.
Messianic Prophecies predicate and reveal the Person of the Messiah's purpose of His coming to redeem the human race from the Fall.
The Biblical prophecies about the coming of the promised Messiah are called “Messianic prophecies” because they unveil and conceal something in the future about the Messiah that mere human wisdom could not foresee or guess.  2 Peter 1:20-21 “Knowing this first that no prophecy of Scripture is of any private interpretation 21 for prophecy never came by the will of man, but holy men of God spoke as they were moved by the Holy Spirit.”  These predictions have enough detail to rule out guesswork, with a lapse of time between the prediction and its fulfillment.


There are hundreds of prophecies that are considered Messianic. Some are direct, like the prophecy that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2). Others are indirect, that the Messiah would relieve Israel’s struggles through his own life as He suffered and died (Isaiah 52:13-15; Isaiah 53). Jesus would live in perfect obedience to the Father and His Word so He could be the perfect Savior (Luke 2:52; Hebrews 5:8-9; Hebrews 4:15; Hebrews 7:26; Hebrews 9:14). each piece of prophecy contributes to the whole to present a clearer picture of the Messiah and His role.
According to Deuteronomy 18:20-22, a true prophet must meet three tests. One of the tests is that the prophecies must come true exactly as predicted, with 100 percent accuracy. They are not meant to be partially fulfilled, although they may be fulfilled in stages—for example, the first and second coming of Messiah. Many New Testament passages reference the fulfillment of Messianic prophecies. We see this in Yeshua’s words: “that the writings of the prophets might be fulfilled” (Matthew 26:56) and “everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses the Prophets and the Psalms” (Luke 24:44).
 
Names and Titles in Messiah Prophecies Help Us Identify Him
Details are given in Messianic prophecies that describe the Messiah in growing clarity. The first Messianic prophecy is in Genesis 3:15. The serpent and the “seed” of Eve would have conflict, but the offspring of the woman would “crush” the serpent and destroy the schemes and work of Satan (Genesis 3:14-15; Galatians 4:4; Hebrews 2:14-15; 1 John 3:8). The prophecy continues with the “seed” of the woman through the line of Abraham and his descendants in the Abrahamic Covenant (Genesis 12:3; Galatians 3:16; Galatians 4:4-5). One prophecy says all nations would be blessed through this descendant of Abraham (Genesis 12:3; Acts 3:24-26).


Many Messianic prophecies give the Messiah descriptive titles or names. The “Lion of Judah” (Genesis 49:9-10) would receive the kingly scepter through Abraham’s bloodline, through King David—but He would be “greater than David.” 2 Samuel 7:12-16; Psalm 132:11-18; Isaiah 11:10; Jeremiah 23:5. Yeshua is God and, God’s Son, was called the son of David and He will receive a never-ending kingdom (Matthew 1:1; Luke 1:31-33; Acts 15:15-16; Hebrews 1:5). This “Son of David” will rule in righteousness (Matthew 22:42; Genesis 49:10; Isaiah 9:6-7; Isaiah 32:1; Jeremiah 23:5; Zechariah 9:9).
 


In Psalm 2:2-12, the first Messianic psalm, the Messiah is described as God’s “anointed” or chosen One. Daniel details the timing of when this anointed ruler would come (Daniel 9:25-26). Some people are surprised that God refers to His Son in the Old Testament (Proverbs 30:4)—“What is his name, and the name of his son?” This coming Messiah would be the “Star” of Judah, coming out of Jacob—described in Revelation 22:16 as the “bright Morning Star.”  See Numbers 24:17; Matthew 2:2; Revelation 22:16. He is also the “Branch” that bears fruit (Isaiah 11:1), the “Servant” of the Lord (Isaiah 42:1), and a healer (Isaiah 35:5-6; Luke 7:20-23).

Pray for Israel.

I have been updating you on the current war going on between Israel and Hamas Islamic terrorists in Gaza Strip but today I would like to share a message from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Christmas:

Christmas Message from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu: Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, this evening (Sunday, 24 December 2023):


"To our Christian friends around the world, Merry Christmas.

Christmas is supposed to be a time of goodwill to all men and peace on Earth. Well, we don't have peace on Earth, not on our part anyway, and we certainly don't see goodwill to all men.

We're facing monsters, monsters who murdered children in front of their parents and parents in front of their children, who raped and beheaded women, who burned babies alive, who took babies, hostages.

This is a battle not only of Israel against these barbarians but also of civilization against barbarism. And I know in this that we have your support.

I want to thank you for your support. I want to thank you for your prayers. And I want to assure you that as we stand together, we will also prevail. We shall win this war and secure our values and future.

Thank you".


United States 2024 : The state of our country under Joe Biden has fallen into disarray. Let's pray for Former President Donald Trump, who received prayers for 2024 in the general election. The faith leaders prayed for protection over Trump and his family. Over 150 faith leaders in Iowa endorsed Trump for president, showing support for his commitment to faith-based principles and values. . "Pray that Donald Trump will lead America in the 2024 Election to continue to be a light for all nations. “Listen to me, my people; hear me, my nation: Instruction will go out from me; my justice will become a light to the nations” (Isaiah 51:4).


My Mission trip to South Sudan on December 27

I wanted to update you on our mission trip and the remaining need for funding. We are leaving for South Sudan on December 27, and we will need some additional support as seed money to jump-start the training of our students in tailoring and fashion design, backhoe and heavy equipment training, welding, beauty salon, telemedical training, and IT training. All these training activities will be self-reliance supervised by myself. Students will pay their faith tuition and pay teachers, medical expenses, food and room on board.   We still need several items to be in place, including welding machines and generators, backhoe operation, desktop computers, and repairs for ONMI farm tractors, among others.

 

We are now down to $15,000 needed by December 27. I am confident thatwe can make this happen with your prayers and supportn. Thank you again for your generosity and your commitment to the great commission.

 

Wishing you and your family a blessed and joyous Christmas season.

In His grace

 

William Levi, Founder & Overseer
