|The Amharic-Hebrew blessing for Salvation in the Messiah
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. John 14:6
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 Amharic and Hebrew blessing expresses our thanks to the LORD for the way of salvation given through Yeshua the Messiah:
The Messiah was named “Yeshua” since He came to save [Hebrew: yeshua’ | Ethiopic: ኢየሱስ Eyesus] 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 መልከ ጼዴቅ Melke-Tzaedaeq | 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).
