Jesus' name in the Old Testament

{Psalm 67}
To the chief Musician on Neginoth, A Psalm or Song.
1 God be merciful unto us, and bless us; and cause his face to shine upon us; Selah.
2 That thy way may be known upon earth, thy saving health among all nations.
3 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
4 O let the nations be glad and sing for joy: for thou shalt judge the people righteously, and govern the nations upon earth. Selah.
5 Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee.
6 Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us.
7 God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.


(Emphasis mine in verse 2.)

So where is Jesus' name in this psalm? Look at verse two. The words "saving health" in the Hebrew is one word, yeshua, which is the name of Jesus in Hebrew. So the verse literally says, "That thy way may be known upon earth, thy Yeshua (Jesus) among all nations"! Isn't that beautiful?

Now read the whole psalm with Yeshua/Jesus there. It means so much more! HE shall judge the people righteously, and govern the nations. ALL the ends of the earth shall fear Him. The day is coming! Let us make Him known among the nations. Time is short!

I'm sure there are other similar passages, but I just came across this one this morning. Interesting indeed! The psalms are full of prophecy.
