Derekh HaYeshuah -
The Hebrew blessing for Salvation in the Messiah
Of all the various berachot (blessings), this is one of the most important of all, since we come to be in a right relationship with God - the Father of Glory - by means of salvation through Yeshua the Mashiach. This simple Hebrew blessing expresses our thanks to the LORD for the way of salvation given through Yeshua the Messiah:
Blessed are You, LORD our God, King of the universe,
Who gave to us the way of salvation
through the Messiah Yeshua, blessed be He. Amen.
The Messiah was named "Yeshua" since He came to save [Hebrew: yeshua'] His people from their sins (Matthew 1:21). Yeshua did what the animal sacrifices only foreshadowed in the Torah but never finally accomplished (Hebrews 2:9, Revelation 5:9, Colossians 1:21-22, 2 Timothy 1:10, 1 Timothy 2:3-6; 1 Peter 2:24, Hebrews 9:12-14a). As our Great High Priest after the order of Malki-Tzedek (Melchizedek), Yeshua took our sins upon Himself, mysteriously becoming the Sin Bearer of humanity, and was crucified on our behalf so that blood atonement with a holy God would be forever accomplished.
By means of His ultimate sacrifice, then, God reconciled the world to Himself in Messiah, not counting their sins against them (see Isaiah 53:5, 1 Corinthians 15:3, John 1:29, 2 Corinthians 5:21, 2 Corinthians 5:19).
Barukh attah Adonai Eloheinu melekh ha'olam,
asher natan lanu et derekh ha'yeshua'
ba'mashiach Yeshua, barukh hu. Amen.
