    Moses' name in the Hebrew language is "Moshe." The individual Hebrew letters literally translate to: M SH H. If you read them backwards, as a reflection, these letters spell HaShem (H SH M). This means "the name."

HaShem is a title of God. It is the term that many religious Jews pronouce in place of God's sacred name when reading the Bible, just as we use the phrase "the Lord." This is significant because there is no name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved other than Yeshua's (Jesus') (Acts 4:12). Yeshua (Jesus) is HaShem - The Name. Therefore, it should not be a surprise when it becomes evident that nearly everything Moses did is a shadow or reflection of God Himself and the Messiah, who is this One God. If fact, God told us through Moses that this would be the case: "The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your countrymen, you shall listen to him."

Like Moses, Jesus:
1. Was royalty who descended from his throne to help his people.
2. Was to be killed at his birth, but survived by supernatural warning.
3. Saved his people from death on the night of Passover.
4. Led his people out of the bondage of slavery on the Biblical Feast of Firstfruits. (Jesus' resurrection and Israel's crossing the Red Sea.)
5. Was the instrument through which a covenant was made on the day of Shavuot (The Feast of Weeks/Pentecost). Both the giving of the Torah, and the outpouring of the Spirit happened on this day.
6. Was the instrument through which man was given a way for God to dwell (tabernacle) in men. That given to Moses was a tent; Jesus', our hearts and bodies.
7. Gave and reaffirmed God's righteous instructions for mankind.
8. Serves as prophet, priest, and king.

This list could continue indefinitely. God has given us many tools on many levels in order to understand who He is. Everything in the Bible points to Jesus. We just have to know how to look.
