The Tzemach

23 Mar

The Tzemach…

Tzemach is a most important word because it’s given in the Hebrew Scriptures as the name of Jesus. In Zechariah 6:12 it says, “Behold the man whose name is Tzemach, for He will branch out from where He is and He will build the temple of the Lord.”

The word Tzemach means the shoot branch, to spring forth again. Jesus rose up from the depths of the earth from the dead to life, the Shooting Forth – the Tzemach.

When this prophecy was translated by the rabbis into Greek, they chose a Greek word to represent Tzemach. The word was Anatolay. It means the rising of the light, the sunrise.

In fact it’s used in the New Testament and is translated as the Day Spring, The Morningstar, The Rising Sun. Are you in the depths? It’s okay. The power of the Tzemach is to rise up from the depths.

So live in the Tzemach, for He has risen, He has blossomed, He has dawned, He has broken the new day. And you too will rise and shine, for your light has come. And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you in the Tzemach – your rising.

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16

What area of your life needs the power of the Tzemach, the springing forth? Lift it up to the Lrod and rise in His power.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
