Anatolay, a name given to Jesus by the rabbis. Centuries before Jesus walked the earth, the rabbis began translating the Hebrew Scriptures into Greek. The resulting Greek Old Testament was called the Septuagint.

In the Septuagint, Zechariah 6, the rabbis gave the coming Jesus, an amazing name “Anatolay,” which means “the rising,” “the sunrise,” and “the dawn.” He would be the rising if He rose, and if He made us rise.

His rising would mark a new beginning for creation for all who receive it… it would be the new sunrise, the new dawn. So only one can be called “Anatolay,” the Rising, the Sunrise, and the Dawn… Yeshua, Jesus.

For not only did He rise, but He makes us to rise to new life. He gives a new dawn, a new sunrise, the power of the new birth. If you are in Jesus, you are in Him who is called ‘Anatolay.’

So rise, for He is your Rising; be made new, for He is your Dawn, and shine, for He is your Sunrise. He is your Anatolay, the Rising, the Sunrise, and the Dawn.

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. Malachi 4:2

Think of what areas in your life you need to rise in – then by the power of Jesus, the Anatolay – Rise!

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,
