The Hebrew word for the English word “salvation” is “yeshuw`ah”, which in the New Testament is translated, “Jesus”. Jesus, of course, is more literally “Yeshua”, being a Hebrew name (Matthew 1:21).
This morning we will be looking at a text that speaks of “the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3). In this glorious Messianic passage, we find acclamations of praise and joy. Because God is our salvation, we can trust Him completely with no cause for fear (Isaiah 12:2). Yes, we are born sinners (Psalm 51:5) and enemies of God (Romans 5:10), but now through Jesus Christ we have received the final atonement for our sin (Romans 5:11) and are complete (Colossians 2:10). The wrath of God has been removed from my life by Yeshua (1 Thessalonians 1:10, 5:9). He not only comforts me (Isaiah 12:1), but He has sent The Comforter (“Helper” – NKJV) to dwell within me (John 14:16-17).
Beloved, we live in what the Bible calls “perilous times” (2 Timothy 3:1), but we also live in very exciting times. The Lord is at hand and this is harvest time (Luke 10:2). The gospel of Jesus Christ is good news indeed (Romans 1:16)! Our calling is to declare His doings among the people (Isaiah 12:4).
Oh what a wonderful Savior we have! The wells of Yeshua are beyond human description. The knowledge of this great salvation is cause for one to cry out and shout (Isaiah 12:6). The enemy is constantly seeking to drag the church down with gloom and doom. Beloved, look up, your redemption is drawing near (Luke 21:28). Sing to The Lord and declare His excellent works.
Reader, have you trusted in Christ alone for your salvation (Acts 4:12)? Have you repented of your sin and believed the gospel (Mark 1:15)? Do you have the joy of The Lord dwelling within you? “Come!” (Revelation 22:17) “…taste and see that The Lord is good;” (Psalm 34:8) and out of your belly will flow rivers of living water (John 7:37-39).
