Is 'Self-love' Biblical ? G_d as a Family generator of Love

9. What is 'self-love'?.

Many websites say one naturally has 'self-love' but this is not commanded. However, there is no Hebrew word for 'self'.

  • Jas 2:8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt maleness-love(Hebrew 'ahab' - Greek 'agape' ) thy neighbour as thyself( Hebrew 'k@mow'- Greek 'seautou'), ye do well:

  • Le 19:18 Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself ( Hebrew 'k@mow') : I am the LORD.

    Notice what the Hebrew word 'k@mow' means according to Jeff Benner:-

    The Hebrew word "The Palms flow secure", suggests the flow of something is "like" something else. Here is the first mention of this Hebrew word in Genesis:

  • Ge 19:15 And when the morning arose, then the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

    Notice Jeff Benner in his mechanical translation of Genesis, does not translate the Hebrew into English, because the context is really strange.

    The Author would mechanically translate this verse into English as :-

  • Ge 19:15 And like how the morning rose, the angels hastened Lot, saying, Arise, take thy wife, and thy two daughters, which are here; lest thou be consumed in the iniquity of the city.

    The word means one flow is compared to another flow, just as the morning sunshine rise, so the angels rush to Lot, weakly at first but with more determined efforts, to make them leave the city..

  • Ex 15:5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as (k@mow) a stone.

  • Ex 15:5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom like (k@mow) a stone.

    The word means one flow is compared to another, the great deep is contrasted to a stone that sinks into the deep.

  • Le 19:18 ... thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD.

    Where is the flow to be compared to in this verse ? maleness-love and YWHW, as the verse says "I am the YHWH". So the Hebraic way of saying this verse in English is...

  • Le 19:18 ... thou shalt maleness-love thy neighbour like ( the I AM), the LORD. Can you see the proper Scripture meaning now ?

  • Mt 22:37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
  • 38 This is the first and great commandment.
  • 39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

    Can we make sense of these verses spoken by Jesus? He is first quoting the maleness-love of the Father YHWH of heavenly Elohiym with all our might. Then Jesus says the second is to maleness-love your neighbour, like. But like what ? Like how your Father maleness-loves you. The 'palms flow secure' is constrasted with the 'palms flow secure' of the heavenly Father. This is NOT a reference to 'self-love'. 'Self-love' does not exist with GOD. We cannot love alone. Neither can the heavenly Father love alone. Love is the functional process of action and reaction from two or more Beings.

    This is why the 'Uncaused Cause' existed at once as three independent united members of Elohiym, because if maleness-love and femaleness-love exists in Scripture, than such a power has to be generated by all three members of Elohiym working together, so that maleness-love flows from the Father, but so does femaleness-love flow from the Father too, but all this heavenly power is generated within a FAMILY Godhead.

    This is a simile of how earthly family love is generated too, within a family of Mum and Dad and children in harmony with each other. However Satan has distorted the earthly elohiym image with the idea one can make 'self-love' on our own, so Daddies provide by making 'human self-love' and Mummies receive making 'human self-love' and children become spoilt and selfish by seeing these two selfish concepts of 'human selfish love' in action within the home. Love that provides alone is not love. Love that receives alone is not love. This one way aspect is called selfishness. Love however, is relational, there are two love words in Scripture, love is a process, not a single event. Love is the functional action and reaction when two members interact. The minimum number for all possible interactions of love is three.

    Mother Nature cannot generate on it's own:-.

  • Gravity works between two bodies of mass.
  • Electricity flows between two bodies of force.
  • Light has two natures of flow.
  • Atoms have two charges of influence.
  • The atomic nucleus has two flows of spin.

    In OT times, Satan distorted Elohiym with pagan ideas that each member of the family deities could generate powers as they like, hence we have three independent gods, doing as they liked, with violent emotions that humans had to appease. When Abraham was called out of pagan concepts of elohiym in the city he lived in, he saw a heavenly Elohiym whose power flowed from a united harmonious flow of love...not three pagan like gods...but a single heavenly power of love. In time the Jews made a strict so called reverance for this single flow of love, thinking that love flows from a single member of Elohiym. Sure love flows out from the heavenly Father, but true love is generated within by a family of unique personalities of love. Since Jews know G_d shows both maleness-love and femaleness-love, how is this possible, unless we introduce G_d as a Family generator?

    Today Satan is destroying the concept of Elohiym even more, suggesting love can be generated within the same gender, so we have same sex families today, where with two gender females for example, we have one gender acting as maleness-love and the other gender acting as femaleness-love. Techncially personality differences like this are possible but this is not the true object lesson the heavenly Elohiym designed for mankind since Genesis.

    We really need to understand what true love is and how this love is generated within a functional family, not within a dysfunctional family. Love cannot be generated on one's own. We need God. We need other people. We need the friends of the forest.

    So what is 'self-love' ? It has to be the 'human powered love', that means nothing to God. What Hebrew calls 'bal', what the Scriptures call the religion of 'Baal'. See further studies on Bal.

    This kind of thinking actually destroys the Holy Spirit revival because the humans who receive God's love, begin stealing this power as their own, and mixing this with human effort, we develop our own 'home authority' which means nothing to GOD.

    How do we know if we have Jesus in the home of our soul? Or whether ourselves are running our own home of our soul?

    By your fruits ye shall know them. Look at your fruits, ask someone to evaluate you according to the fruits of the Holy Spirit.

  • Jas 3:12 Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.
