Matthew 2:11 “And coming into the house, they saw the Child with Miryam (Mary) His mother, and fell down and did reverence to Him, and opening their treasures, they presented to Him gifts of gold, and frankincense, and myrrh.

When it comes to the “most important” part of all in this Christmas observance–the Christmas shopping season–the buying and exchanging of gifts–many will exclaim triumphantly, “Well, at least the Bible tells us to do that! Didn’t the wise men give gifts, when Christ was born?”

Again, we are due for some surprises, when we learn the plain truth. First, let us look at the historic origin of trading gifts back and forth, then see exactly what the Bible does say about it.

From the Bibliotheca Sacra, volume 12, pages 153-155, we quote, “The interchange of presents between friends is alike characteristic of Christmas and the Saturnalia, and must have been adopted by Christians from the Pagans, as the admonition of Tertullian plainly shows.”

The fact is, this custom fastened upon people of exchanging gifts with friends and relatives at the Christmas season has not a single trace of Christianity about it, strange though that may seem! This does not celebrate Christ’s birthday or honor it or Him! Suppose someone you love has a birthday. You want to honor that person on his or her birthday. Would you lavishly buy gifts for everyone else, trading gifts back and forth with all your other friends and loved ones, but ignore completely any gift for the one whose birthday you are honoring? Rather absurd, when viewed in that light, is it not?

Yet this is exactly what people the world over are doing! They honor a day that is not Christ’s birthday by spending every dime they can scrape together–even spending what they cannot afford–in buying presents to trade back and forth among friends and relatives.

Now consider what the Bible says about giving gifts when Christ was born. It is in Matthew 2:1-11. “Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea in the days of Herod the king, behold there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews?’ . . . And when they were come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, and fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had opened their treasures, they presented unto HIM gifts; gold and frankincense, and myrrh.”

Notice, they inquired for the child Jesus, who was born King of the Jews! Now why did they present gifts to Him? Because it was His birthday? Not at all, because they came several days or weeks after the date of His birth! Was it to set an example for us, today, to trade gifts back and forth among ourselves? No, notice carefully! They did not exchange gifts among themselves, but “they presented unto Him gifts.” They gave their gifts to Christ, not to their friends, relatives, or one another!

Why? Let me quote from the Adam Clarke Commentary, volume 5, page 46: “Verse 11. (They presented unto him gifts.) The people of the East never approach the presence of kings and great personages, without a present in their hands. The custom is often noticed in the Old Testament, and still prevails in the East, and in some of the newly discovered South Sea Islands.”

There it is! They were not instituting a new Christian custom of exchanging gifts with friends to honor Christ’s birthday. They were following an old and ancient eastern custom of presenting gifts to a king when they come into his presence. They were approaching Him, born King of the Jews, in person. Therefore custom required they present gifts–even as the Queen of Sheba brought gifts to Solomon–even as many people today take a gift along when they visit the White House for an appointment with the President.

No, the custom of trading gifts back and forth does not stem from this scriptural incident at all, but rather, as quoted from history above, it is the continuance of an ancient pagan custom.

The Words of ’Elohiym by Brad Scott

Perhaps the greatest difficulty I am personally confronted with in teaching the Hebraic perspective is terminology. It seems that no matter what educational background a person has, it is words that get in the way. Communication is the most important thing we do. Think about it! Where would we be if YHVH did not communicate with us through His word? What a wonderful way to let us know who He is. What a wonderful way to reveal to us how to be reconciled back to Him. He could have chosen other ways to speak to us. Sometimes He does. Sometimes He just “speaks” to us. But, for reasons that to many of us are obvious, He chose to communicate through people. Not just any people, but people that He knew in His omniscience would faithfully preserve His words through their culture. The Hebrew people. His view of the world became their view of the world. Or, you might say that their view of the world conformed to His view of the world.

So, life would be sin free and we would all be basking in paradise if it were not for one significant, unfortunate detail. The devil. haSatan, as he is called. The problem is that he knows all too well how important communication is. He knows what the Scriptures say. He misquotes them frequently, but he knows what they say. He knows that “… faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of ’Elohiym.” He knows that faith in the Word of ’Elohiym and obedience to that faith changes lives. He knows the power of ’Elohiym’s word. He knows that societies prosper and flourish when they obey ’Elohiym’s word. He knows that people do not need to be healed when they are already healthy. He knows that nations, communities, and families do not need to be restored when obedient to the Word of ’Elohiym. He knows that when people keep the words of ’Elohiym, that they win and he loses! So, he commits himself to pervert the words of ’Elohiym.

Christians for centuries have known that the enemy perverts church doctrine. Christians have argued among themselves over doctrinal issues since the book of Acts, but to no avail. Why? Because we are swatting at the branches and not getting to the tree, much less the root. I will cut to the chase (idiom). Hasatan simply redefines the words, slowly, a little at a time. He spreads this calculated scheme over a long period of time. He uses evolution. He causes ’Elohiym’s words to evolve over time. He uses the most elementary technique, the translating of one language to another. I am going to concentrate the next several lessons on words, scriptural words. Words that over time have changed. Words of the New Testament that have become almost second nature to us. I hope to show that there has been a tremendous paradigm shift.

The terms that we read in the New Testament were not created in a vacuum. Virtually every word or words that you read have their beginning and defining in the Tanakh. When Yeshua‘ or any of the writers wrote their words, they did so with full confidence that the readers were already familiar with the words they chose to convey ’Elohiym’s ways. When Yeshua‘ said, “Be not afraid, only believe”, He used a term already well established in the Tanakh as to it’s meaning. The word ‘believe’ did not pop up from nowhere in the New Testament! He assumed a previous knowledge of this word. When He uses the terms; kingdom, life, light, righteousness, way, truth, receive, bind, loose, come together, or worship, for example, He assumes we know what these things mean from our knowledge of His previous words. But we take the meaning of these common words for granted. So, I’ll shut up. Let’s get on with the lesson.

WORD

Let’s begin with a few very common New Testament terms and trace them back to their meanings, keeping in mind that how a word starts out is how it is meant to be understood. Is that not logical? I would like to begin with the word, WORD!

Yochanan (John) 1:1 In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and God was the Word.

Yochanan 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us …

Now, didn’t Yochanan just tell us that the Word is from the beginning? So, it did not begin here in the New Testament. Therefore, defining the word in the Greek is not going to tell us what the word word means. We have to go back to where it (HE) began.

The main Hebrew word used to translate this word “word” is dabar. Dabar is a spoken thing. It is speech. Whether by Mosheh, David, Sha’ul, Mattityahu, kings, peasants, slaves, you, me, or YHVH, it is things that are spoken. When Mosheh speaks, it is the dabar of Mosheh. When the king speaks it is the dabar of the king. Whether uplifting words or slanderous words, it is dabar. So, when the Scriptures say, “The WORD of the Lord said to Yirmeyahu (Jeremiah) …” you know that it is the dabar of ’Elohiym. It is His words, Holy words, Righteous words. When He speaks, you know it is not man’s words, but His words, His commandments, ordinances, precepts, and ways. Let me give you a few examples of His words, to help us define what His word is.

Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:46 And he said unto them, set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe and to do, all the words of this law.

Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 2:3 And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of YHVH, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths; for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of YHVH from Jerusalem.

Yesha’yahu 1:10 Hear the word of YHVH, ye rulers of Sodom; give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.

Yesha’yahu 5:24 Therefore as the fire devoureth the stubble, and the flame consumeth the chaff, so their root shall be as rottenness, and their blossom shall go up as dust: because they have cast away the law of the Master of hosts, and despised the word of the Holy One of Israel.

Mizemor (Psalm) 78:1 Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth.

Zekareyah (Zechariah) 7:12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the word which the Master of hosts hath sent in his Spirit by the former prophets: …

Devariym 18:18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee (Mosheh) and will put my word in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.

Mizemor 119:105 Thy word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path.

Here are just a few examples of how YHVH sees His word. They are laws and commandments for man to light his path. His word teaches us His ways, and how to walk in His paths. This is what the Word of ’Elohiym is. Now, Yochanan teaches us that this Word became flesh and dwelt among us. His Word, properly defined, was not a pre-existing thing or entity. It was not a concept housed in outer space waiting to become flesh. It was His teachings and His ways that became flesh. Now put this back into context in the New Testament.

Luke 8:21 And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

Luke 5:1 And it came to pass, that, as the people pressed upon him to hear the word of God, he [i.e. the Word of ’Elohiym] stood by the lake of Gennesaret.

Acts 11:1 And the apostles and brethren that were in Judea heard that the Gentiles had also received the word of God. (c.p. Yochanan 1:12)

Acts 6:7 And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith.

Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. (Who is the seed of the woman in Bere’shiyt (Genesis) 3:15?)

Acts 8:25 And they, when they had testified and preached the word of the Master, returned to Jerusalem, and preached the gospel in many villages of the Samaritans. See also 2 Corinthians 4:5

Next time, we are going to compare the scriptural teaching of the Dabar of ’Elohiym with the Greek version of the logos (Greek word for word is logos) of ’Elohiym. This has been one of the fundamental reasons for the swift change from faith being validated by obedience, to faith being validated by creeds. See you next time.

Deuteronomy 32:15But Yeshurun (Jeshurun) grew fat and kicked; You grew fat, you grew thick, You are covered with fat; So he forsook Eloah (God) who made him, And scorned the Rock of his deliverance.

Jeshurun is a code name for Israel. It literally means “the upright one.” The word may have been written with a certain measure of sarcasm. Or, it may have been written as a warning to this “upright one”—Jeshurun or Israel—about when he was most likely to fall to the enemy.

This is an interesting warning from God of the power of affluence to turn a person away. It is such a subtle form of persecution that we bask in it. It does not have to be a form of persecution or trial; it depends on our mindset. However, we must realize the power that it has. God is prophesying that their lack of character to handle the affluence is really what destroys them.

According to John Wesley—the founder of Methodism—wealth has destroyed the godliness of more people than any other thing. One might think, “I am not wealthy,” but Wesley defined a wealthy person as anyone who had food, clothing, a place to sleep, and just a little bit left over each day. According to this definition, nearly every one of us qualifies as being wealthy. The problem with wealth is that it demands that we manage it and that we take care of what it provides. If we are not careful, it can be a consuming distraction. This is what John Wesley means.

It does not have to be that way. This is obvious from the fact that the Bible reports to us that Abraham was very wealthy. He was not just rich—he was very rich. David, too, was very rich. These were two great men in the eyes of God. The problem is that hardly anybody can use wealth in the right way, that is, manage it without it becoming a consuming occupation in itself. Yet, of and by itself, wealth is a neutral.

Most of us do not have the mindset of wealth’s neutrality, which is a defense, because we have been reared in a culture that is wealthy, and it keeps prodding us to become wealthier and wealthier. It promotes the idea that we are nobody unless we possess wealth. This tends to work against us, making wealth difficult for us to control.

The Bible and the church are not against wealth, but we have to be aware of what the Bible says about it—that it can be one of the greatest deterrents to spirituality that we could possibly be given. Maybe God is blessing us when he does not prosper us so much. . . .

Mysteries and Truths Hidden within the AlephBet by Brad Scott

The ancient Jewish sages believed that the alephbet (Hebrew alphabet) was the building blocks of life. In other words, those twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet are what all of life is built on.

In the book of Ivrim (Hebrews), chapter 11, verse 3, it says that the worlds were framed by the word of YHVH. When you read Bere’shiyt (Genesis) chapter one, you see ’Elohiym saying, “Let there be light and there was light.” ’Elohiym said, “Let there be stars in the firmament” and “Let there be beasts in the field, and fowl in the air.” He did this simply by speaking. Some may think of this only as poetic, but the Hebrew people have historically had solemn reverence and awe for the actual building blocks of life which they believe are the individual letters; that ’Elohiym did create the world with the alephbet. When you examine the very first verse of the Scriptures in Bere’shiyt chapter 1, verse 1, you see the same concept. In Hebrew it reads:

הארץ…ואת…………..השמים…..את……אלהים……..ברא……….בראשית

Bere’shiyt………bara……..’Elohiym…’et…..hashamayim….v’et… ha’aretz.

In beginning…created.. ’Elohiym….(*)….the heaven……..and…the earth.

The Hebrew text, of course, does not look like the above, being that it is in Hebrew letters and written from right to left. This study is designed to be accessible to those who aren’t literate in the Hebrew script, therefore I’ve rendered the text into our western script from left to right. As you can see, the sentence structure of the Hebrew text is not according to western or Greek thought where we would expect to see “God” in the primary position of the sentence, followed by the verb “created”, and ending with the object of the action – “the heavens and the earth.” The Hebrew mind focuses on the verb or action rather than the subject or noun. As a matter of fact, the Hebrew writer will accentuate the action to the point of being overly redundant, such as: “He opened his mouth and spoke, saying …”. Many people believe that this way of speaking is the poetic Elizabethan English of the King James Version, but the redundancy of verb usage is purely an eastern or Hebrew peculiarity.

Let’s go back to the verse. The word bere’shiyt is the Hebrew word from which the Greek word “Genesis” comes. (Several of the books in the Scripture are named after the opening words of the book.) This opening sentence is constructed out of seven Hebrew words. The number seven fits into the scheme of scriptural interpretation called gematria (also called numerology and the heptatic structure). The number seven is recognized as a very special number from the Jewish point of view. It is a number that speaks of spiritual completeness and fullness. Seven is used quite extensively by the Ruach haQodesh throughout the whole body of scripture. A look into Strong’s concordance will reveal that the number seven, along with an abundant number of things that are grouped in sevens, are in the hundreds. So, the ancient Hebrew sages saw a specialness in the usage of the number seven. When the ancient sages look at these opening words and see that it is made up of 7 words, and especially the context in which they are used, they see the entire heavens and earth being completed in it’s fullness from aleph to tav. In the very first verse they see a complete heavens and earth created in verse one, as opposed to those things being created in the first six days. Actually no creative process takes place in the first six days except the beasts and man. Everything else was formed from material that was already created in verse one. This is why I have absolutely no argument whatsoever with those who believe in a young earth or an old earth because I believe (as the ancient sages did) that the heavens and the earth were created in the beginning, not in the six days.

Now let’s look at the verse even more closely through the eyes of the ancient sages. After Bere’shiyt bara ’Elohiym there is a fourth untranslatable word. That fourth word is actually two Hebrew letters: the Aleph and the Tav. The aleph-tav (את) does serve a grammatical purpose in that it points to the direct object of the sentence. These two letters do not actually form a word, but rather they express an understanding. The aleph (א) is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and the tav (ת) is the last letter of the alphabet. The placement of these two very significant letters at strategic locations within many sentences of the Hebrew Scriptures express a total completeness. It is equivalent to saying “from alpha to omega, from a to z, from first to last, from beginning to end.” So, from the Hebraic point of view, they see that “In the beginning ’Elohiym created the aleph-tav. In other words, they believe that the very first thing ’Elohiym created was the Hebrew alphabet, which is known through ancient writings also as the aleph-tav. They recognize that He created the letters by which all life and all physical things spring forth from. They are divinely ordained building blocks of life. They believed that ’Elohiym had to create this first because it is all the letters of the Hebrew alephbet that form the Torah, the word of YHVH, which, according to the word of YHVH, is YHVH Himself. Now you can better understand the reverence they have for the alphabet because they are the letters of the Torah – which is YHVH. We understand the same from Yochanan (John) 1:1, “In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with God and the WORD was GOD.” If any Jewish sage would read that verse they would give it a hearty amen. He would say, “In the beginning was the WORD, the alephbet, the WORD was with God, and God was the WORD.” YHVH is the Alephbet and is revered for the same reason.

In English we can understand Bere’shiyt 1:1 as “In the beginning God created A to Z.” Our own expression that parallels this one is, “He finished everything from A to Z, or from beginning to end.” This is also the reason for several of Yeshua‘s titles: the “Author and Finisher of our faith;” He is the Aleph Tav, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End, and the First and Last.

It is also believed by these ancient sages that these Hebrew letters are not only the building blocks of life, but that we are supposed to study them, and speak them forth continuously, because if ever there is a time when Torah is not being vocalized, the ancient sages believed “the earth will melt away with a fervent heat.” That saying should ring familiar to those who study the New Testament; Kefa (Peter) made a similar statement in his second letter, that there will be a time when the earth melts away with a fervent heat! From a scriptural point of view that simply means that “there will be no Laws and no Torah on the earth, and that it is Torah (that is, the word of YHVH) that is keeping all things together!” This brings to mind the book of Colossians, where in chapter one it says that Yeshua‘ holds all things together and that by Him all things consist. We know from Yochanan 1:1 and 1:14 that Yeshua‘ is the WORD of YHVH, and that He holds the entire universe together with His physical and spiritual laws which in actuality – is Yeshua‘ Himself! The ancient sages believed the same way about the alephbet as modern science believes concerning the elements; that they are the fundamental building blocks of everything we see. They cannot be created, but you can take those basic building blocks, combine them, and make something out of them. In reality, that is all that man can do; that is – make or form something from existing material. He cannot create anything. We can only take what ’Elohiym has created, and manipulate that material, and make something out of it. We cannot bara (create). We can only ‘asah (make) or yatsar (mold). We must take care as to the proper elements to use in our making and molding because some combinations produce useful and helpful results, and other combinations produce hazardous and even deadly results. It is this parallel comparison of the elements and words that teach us that we must be careful which words we should and should not write or speak. This is the reason Yeshua‘ said that we would be judged by every word that comes forth from our mouth. We may use the comparison of letters to the elements in the following example. You can take two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen and produce H2O or water, which is a life sustaining compound. However, you may take the same two parts hydrogen and combine it with one part sulphur (instead of oxygen), and that produces H2S, hydrogen sulphide, which is very lethal, indeed. From this simple example we can see that the substitution of one simple element can cause disastrous and even deadly results; forming something deadly rather than life-sustaining. The same care must be used in communication. We are held accountable for every word that we speak. Our words can also be life sustaining or life threatening. The same care must be used in our understanding of the word of YHVH, and our teaching that is a result of our understanding. When we read the scriptures, and we do not recognize an idiom as an idiom, and we teach the idiom as literal truth rather than symbolic of an intended meaning, we are communicating our understanding in a way that is not life-sustaining, and in many ways can be life threatening when spiritual truths are not understood as the truths they are intended to convey. To teach spiritual things without spiritual understanding is death to the hearer. Therefore, we must get back to the original context and mind set and understanding of the writers, rather than trying to force our own particular meanings into the text.

This is as good of a stopping place as any, but in actuality we could go on and on into the applications of the Hebrew alephbet in the creation story and beyond. I believe that if you can get motivated to seek out the truths contained within this study, and apply them to all areas of your studies, you will find a more solid basis for your faith and start to weed out those beliefs that you had originally felt were true, but have found deeper understanding through the proper use of the alephbet.

Ecclesiastes 7:1-4 “1 A good name is better than precious oil, and the day of death than the day of one’s birth. 2 It is better to go to the house of mourning than to go to the house of feasting, for that is the end of all men. And the living take it to heart. 3 Sorrow is better than laughter, for by the sadness of the face the heart becomes better. 4 The heart of the wise is in the house of mourning, but the heart of fools is in the house of rejoicing.

 If we believe these verses, we must accept that death must have its “better” points. We are all well aware of the reasons why we think of death as a negative thing, but how can we think of such an event and condition as positive?

We must always remember that our Creator, the Master Craftsman who made everything of the highest quality (Genesis 1:4-31), built death into man’s design. He did this for good reasons. Surprisingly, there really are good and positive purposes behind both the “first death” and the “second death” (Revelation 2:11; 20:6, 14; 21:8). The first death is the one with which every person is familiar—the one everyone must face. This death terminates the physical life of every human being who lives during the 6,000 years allotted to man.

Before the Flood, even though many people lived for multiple hundreds of years, they all still died. Afterward, God gradually shortened man’s average lifespan to 70 years (Psalm 90:10). Perhaps He did this to show us the results of long lives of disobedience to God’s law, such as we see in the record of the pre-Flood world, the Tower of Babel, and Sodom and Gomorrah. What would the world be like if it were filled with immortal, law-breaking humans?

God is reproducing Himself. He wants children who will not turn to lives of sin, as Satan and his demons did, and continue to live forever in misery. Unlike the destiny of that miserable band of fallen angels, death is the wages of sin for human beings; death is our penalty for failing to live God’s way (Romans 6:23).

Is death, the just penalty for sin created by God, really the “bad thing” in this equation? Is it not rather sin, which causes the death penalty to be incurred, that is really bad?

God does not want one of us to live a miserable, sinful existence for all eternity. He wants children who will learn to obey Him willingly, who will learn to reject sin and reap the positive results throughout eternal lives of joy. He has promised to give every human an opportunity to receive His gifts of salvation and eternal life in His Family and Kingdom. However, if any of His regenerated children insist on continuing in sin after they have been given adequate time to learn, weigh, and understand the consequences of each alternative, they will incur the penalty of the second death, God’s loving and merciful penalty of eternal sleep (Revelation 2:11; 20:6, 14; 21:8). Romans 6:23 can be paraphrased as, “The wages of sin is death! Eternal death! Not eternal life in hell-fire, agony, and misery!” We can see by this merciful method of final punishment that, when God tells us to love our enemies, He is not asking us to do something that He is not willing to do Himself. What a loving and merciful God we have!

We believe and hope that Jesus Christ will return very soon to straighten out the mess that man has made of His creation. However, if He does not return before our allotted time expires, we will experience the dreamless sleep of the first death as He did. Jesus’ sleep lasted only 72 hours. We should not be concerned that ours will probably last longer because, when we are in a deep, sound sleep, we are unaware of time passing (Ecclesiastes 9:5).

Names Mean Things by Brad Scott

Names Mean Things

Part 4

I closed our last discussion by stating that I wanted to address the words ‘elohiym and God/god after reading some of the email I knew I would get concerning this subject. Just as I anticipated, I received the usual responses. After 26 years of teaching Hebrew and the dynamics of language in general, I still get emails directing me on how to properly articulate the tetragrammaton and educate me on what the word ‘god’ means in the old, middle, or modern English, or what it meant to the Norsemen, Druids or Vikings. So I say to myself, “geee, I never heard THAT before!” I knew that no matter what I wrote, I would be chastised by one group because I used the pagan word God instead of ‘Elohiym. I would be hammered by another bunch because I DID use the word ‘Elohiym instead of God. And even though I made it clear that YHVH is a proper noun and should be transliterated and not translated as Lord, I was reminded by another group, referring me to a half dozen web sites, that YHVH is a pagan word. You know some people actually think that the information they find on web sites, including this one, is proof that something is true. Lastly, I received two responses informing me that the only name in which anyone can be saved is the name ‘Jesus’, and that His name has nothing to do with Yeshua, Yahshua, Yahashua, Yahushua or even the Hebrew language, for that matter. I am forever given CDs, articles and videos showing me that if I do not conform or believe that the ‘name’ is pronounced as this or that, then I am calling on and worshiping a false god. It seems to me that many years ago I left traditional Christianity because it was based not upon doing what the God of Israel said, but rather based upon a particular belief system. It seems that I am, once again, being dragged back into another simple Simon belief system.

I have chosen to begin addressing the subject of God/god/ ‘elohiym/’Elohiym/El/Eloah ad nauseam infinitum, by singling out the word Father/father, which was used quite often by those who are convicted that using the word God is calling on or addressing pagan deities. Several times they used the word Father. But before we do, a short reminder of the rules of grammar. Yes! Grammar has rules in almost every written language. We cannot just make them up as we go. One remark was that God is not a translation of the Hebrew word ‘elohiym, but it is the name of various pagan deities. Please do not think that I am being condescending, but let’s once again go back to Introductory Grammar 101. People, places and things are nouns. These nouns are initially divided into common nouns and proper nouns. When translators set out to convert (translate) the established set of symbols (alphabet) from one language to a different set of symbols in another language, they must translate common nouns and transliterate proper nouns. Proper nouns are words that identify and separate out a particular person, place or thing. Common nouns are words that address people, places and things that are common in virtually every culture and society. That is why they are called common. Common nouns are translated because they are words that refer to common things in each culture and if they were transliterated they would be undecipherable. Common words are translated. Once again, translating a word is finding the closest word in MEANING in the receiving set of symbols. Transliteration of proper nouns is finding the closest SOUNDS available in the receiving set of symbols. When the available set of sounds and symbols in the language you are translating from are different than the available set of sounds and symbols in the language you are translating to, a trained linguist follows these rules. We are not talking about the phonetic or SPOKEN transfer of words, syllabaries or sounds, we are talking about preserving WRITTEN texts.

The Hebrew word ‘av, father, is a common noun. Every culture has an ‘av. Because this Hebrew word is a common noun, it is then translated into other languages. Because it is a common word in Hebrew it would not be understood in other languages. So translators chose the closest word/words in MEANING in the receiving language. Therefore, we get pater in Greek and Latin, padre in Spanish and Italian, vater in German, father in English, but ate in Dakota, tat in Yucatec and ataataq in Greenlandic. These are the closest words in MEANING. As a sidebar, it should be noted that the p, pa, va and fa sounds in English, German, Greek and Latin are actually reversals of the aleph and bet letters for father in Hebrew. This is where we shorten pater and father to get papa, pappy and pa. So our English word father ultimately comes from manipulating or reversing the aleph and the bet of Hebrew. I happened to notice in some of the emails I received that they did not have a problem with calling ‘Elohiym Father. So when translating the Hebrew text into other languages, if the common nouns were transliterated instead of translated, then you might as well leave everything in Hebrew, because no one would understand what they are reading. This is what translators have to deal with when working with written languages. When standing in your presence I am perfectly capable of phonemically (by sound) transferring a language to you, but I am not capable of doing this when it has to be written down for future generations.

‘Elohiym is a Hebrew common noun. It is not a proper noun. If you look up this word and some of its cognates, you will find that the meaning common in every Hebrew lexicon will be supreme being, highest deity, strength, power, ruler, judge, or simply God/god/gods. This word comes from the pictographic expression of someone leading by power or strength, The pictographic aleph was a powerful ox and one of it’s closest cognates (family words) was ‘ayil, or the ram. It is a common noun because all cultures have a supreme being, a deity, a god/gods, or someone powerful that leads them. When you look up God/god in our American dictionaries you will find that the MEANING is someone or something that is a supreme being, a deity, or ruler. The Greek common noun theos, the Latin common noun deus or the Spanish common noun dios all have similar meanings. “Why?” you may ask. Because they are all COMMON NOUNS. So when we translate we choose the closest word that is similar in meaning. The word is NOT a name that designates a particular person. It can mean or refer to YHVH the one Creator of all that is, or it can mean any god/gods or deity. Since this is a common noun that can refer to any god or gods, then I believe this is why we are commissioned by our Messiah to go forth into all nations and TEACH them who the supreme deity is that created them and all there is, and what His name (proper noun) is. Melek in Hebrew is a common noun. It means a king. Since many cultures have a king we therefore translate this word into the closest word in meaning in their language. We must then teach them that while the Creator of the universe is also a king, we must diffentiate through context the King of the Universe from King Tut, the King of England, Burger King or the king of the hill. The nature of language is that proper nouns lose all their meaning when made common, but also common nouns lose some of the meaning when they are translated into different alphabetic systems and syllabaries.

You can find the background and history of the common noun god/God in a multitude of places. Over the years I have received hundreds of emails and web sites educating me on the Old English/Teutonic meaning of this word. The reason the root meaning of god is so easily researched is because, like most of our English words, it is a common noun. So that means you will find similar meanings in thousands of languages. I do not assume that because an individual uses the word God that he/she are referring to the one God of Israel. I also do not assume that because a person uses the word ‘Elohiym or YHVH that he/she is worshiping the God of Israel, either. One might wonder that if the all knowing Creator of the universe foreknew that YHVH, a proper noun, referred specifically to Him, then why associate the word ‘Elohiym with Him at all? Why not just use YHVH? Why cause the confusion? Because ‘Elohiym is a word that has a purpose and a function.

The reason I called this series of teaching Names Mean Things is because virtually all proper and common Hebrew nouns come from verbal roots and these roots have a meaning. The Hebrew langauge and thought is functional. The thinking process of western cultures is primarily in form, i.e., what does something look like or how does it appear. The conceptual thought process of Hebrew focuses dominantly on the purpose, design or function of someone or something. It is action oriented. Hebrew is more interested in what a watch does, than what a watch looks like. The Greek, Roman, Celtic, Norse, Teutonic and Egyptian cultures, for example, were form cultures with respect to their gods. They gave specific names to each god and they believed that by calling out those particular names they would receive favor and blessings commensurate with the names of the gods. If they called on the wrong god or improperly articulated his/her name then …

Many of the emails I receive gently remind me of all the verses that state in one way or another that YHVH is His name and that we are not to even mention the names of other gods. There are two aspects of this I would like to discuss. Many of these treatises on the ‘right’ way to articulate the tetragrammaton do an impressive stringing of pearls to show that this or that is the way to properly address Him. Some, I speak without sarcasm, very carefully walk you through why His name must be used through its Hebrew articulation rather than English or Greek. For the most part I agree with this and have already covered the meaning of YHVH. However, while doing a great job of breaking down the Hebrew letters of The Name, they gloss right over the Hebrew meaning of name. They just assume the most oft used meaning of the word in our culture. I do address in somewhat more detail the meaning of this word in our Word of the Week section. I would take a look at that before reading on: name. Etymolgically, this word means to follow something back to it’s beginning or source. This is seen in the meaning of the shin and mem, where the waters are pressed, i. e., the source of the waters. This is one reason behind the use of these two letters in the word shamayim, translated as heaven or heavens. It is also another word for breath as in neshamah (B’reshiyt/Genesis 2:7). Either way, the word is birthed in origin or source.

When YHVH tells us that this is His name, He is saying that HE is the Creator of all that is, and that HE is our authority or source of life and we are not to acknowledge or call upon the authority of other gods (many times the same word ‘elohiym). Our life and blessings come from Him and not other deities, and to separate Himself from those other ‘elohiyms. He has a personal name, YHVH, a proper noun. The word shem in Hebrew is a common noun. So that means that this word is to be translated into other languages. In the same way that father is used to denote the paternal parent of a child, the word father in Hebrew does not mean the paternal parent of a child. The Hebrew word ‘av, similar to shem, also means the origin or source of something. When Hebrew and English use the expressions the ‘father of tents’ or the ‘father of electricity’, it does not mean that their wives conceived and brought forth pup tents and light bulbs. So it is with the word name. Our Creator is saying “I am YHVH, your only true King, Father and source of authority for your life in this world, and my children are to have no other source of their life, prosperity, longevity and blessings from anyone other than Me.”

Two more things. I must address the verse in Sh’mot that is often quoted.

Sh’mot 23:13:

“And in all things that I have said unto you be circumspect: and make no mention (zakar) of the name (shem) of other gods, neither let it be heard out of your mouth.”

After giving the Ten Commandments to the people from the mount, the God of Israel now begins this verse proclaiming to His children to be watchful (circumspect) of the commands He just gave them. The context is His commandments and His authority and design for the lives of His children. He tells us to make no mention of the name of other gods. The word mention is a translation of the Hebrew word zakar. We have covered this word many times. The verbal, etymological meaning of this word is to speak or act in behalf of some one or some thing. In English, it means to recall or recollect something. In the context immdiately following the instructions of our Creator, He commands us not to speak or act in behalf of the authority of any other gods. In other words, “Listen to Me, I am your Father, I am your Creator, I am the Dad, so you do what I say.” It is the God of Israel’s way of saying, “because I said so”. Have you or your children ever heard that before?

One last thing. I do not want to close this subject by saying anything confusing, but I feel that we must present a just weight (Mishlei 11:1). As it appears to be with every other doctrinal issue in the scriptures, there are extremes. There are good points to be made by those who insist that using translated common nouns is analogous to calling on pagan deities. I cannot help but notice that most cultures, organizations, denominations and institutions that use the words God, Lord, or Jesus, also live and teach a theology that Jesus died to free us from the Torah, or have rendered the Torah as a back seat driver to the Talmud or other Rabbinical writings. I believe that one of the reasons why we are sent out to teach the nations, is to help make clear what is many times lost in translation. I believe that the God of Israel is smarter than we are, and that He already knew that the good news would be watered down through translation into the scattered languages of the world. I believe that the translations and transliterations of The Word of ‘Elohiym is all part of the plan and design of our Creator. I believe this is why He is, at just such a time as this, restoring the pure language. Over the past ten years in particular, I have used the common noun God in every conference, every seminar, every article and every message to hundreds of congregations and thousands of people. I have witnessed countless hearts pricked by the message of the purpose and beauty of the Torah and the awesome treasures found embedded in the ancient Hebrew tongue. I have seen and heard from more than I can count, those who now call out and use His given Hebrew names. Let me reiterate that because someone uses a properly translated word to refer to YHVH, I do not know if that person is in the kingdom or not. Conversely, if someone uses ‘Elohiym, Yeshua, Yahshua or YHVH, I do not assume that person is in the kingdom, either. I believe that YHVH, the God of Israel is the ultimate sower and that I am responsible as His child to produce fruit. My conclusion of the matter is that if you are convicted that you will use all Hebrew names to address the one God of Israel, then by all means do so and help us to teach the nations what these names mean in the language that created all things. I mean, how can I argue with that. My whole ministry from the beginning has been dedicated to restoring the pure language. But, please, let us temper our rhetoric with the rules of grammar, patience, love, a just weight and a remembrance of where we all were not too long ago.
