Q28: 35. . . . "Peace, Be Still"

Show the Desire of Ages is inspired..

(1) Humans sow Divinity : Relationship..

He had likened His own work to that of the sower; thedevelopment of His kingdom to the growth of the mustard seed and the effect of leaven in the measureof meal. The great final separation of the righteous and the wicked He had pictured in the parables ofthe wheat and tares and the fishing net.

Mt 13:3 And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

Notice Hebrew plays alot with verb and noun forms of the same word:-

Isa 55:10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed (Zara) to the sower (Zara), and bread to the eater:

  • 11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.
  • 12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.

    In the former rains of the OT, the Sower sows Jesus' power, and all the "trees" or "Christians" clap their hands in the power of the YHWH-Jesus. During the latter rains of the NT, Jesus says:-

    Behold, a sower went forth to sow;

  • Behold, a Zara went forth to Zara;

  • Behold Love went forth to love...
  • Behold Relationship is relational..
  • Behold Yasha went forth to yasha ..
  • Behold Saviour went forth to save ..
  • The Producer went forth to produce ..
  • The WORD went forth to word ..

    Do noun and verb forms of the same word have different meanings? No, only differences in actions completed...And Hebrew has lots of such words, really spoiled by English translators.

    Jesus spoke in parables, to hide His words from those who do not want to seek, or find or dig for His treasure.

    Do not let scholars deceive you...Yeshua is a different spelling for Yasha, the one who saves... But the different spelling is only to CONFUSE you... Jesus is the one who saves..Jesus is the sower who sows...He sowed His Father's seed, to make fruits in humans...in relationship...because the Father is highly relational... The Father seeks to produce His produce in you.

    Love goes forth to love because Love is highly relational and is generated by the roping of family members, but flows as a single electromotive force...

    Notice these Hebrew words :-

    Ps 7:14 Behold, he travaileth with iniquity, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood (KJV).

    Ps 7:14 Behold, the binding of propensites, and hath conceived mischief, and brought forth falsehood (Ancient Hebrew).

    The cords of DNA are binding with epi-genetic propensities that can be born of mischief and come forth to influence...How literal and physical is the Hebrew with biological pictures of the spiritual.

    Ps 18:4 The sorrows of death compassed me...(KJV)

    Ps 18:4 The bounds of death compassed me...(Ancient Hebrew)

    Ps 18:5 The sorrows of hell compassed me (KJV)

    Ps 18:5 The bounds of hell compassed me (An cient Hebrew)

    From the same word as a verb to bind, we have the noun form to bound. The same meanings but different action... in death and in hell, the binding is fully completed...

    This is a poetry parallel about death and hell, as bounds where the binding is fully complete. Makes sense better doesn't it, when we get back to Ancient Hebrew...

    Notice in this prayer or psalm, the conclusion to the 18th Prayer of David:-

    Ps 18:50 Great deliverance giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.(KJV)

    Can't see beyond the fuzzy translation? Let's try Ancient Hebrew:-

    Ps 18:50 Growing Yeshua giveth he to his king; and sheweth mercy to his anointed, to David, and to his seed for evermore.(Ancient Hebrew)

    Wow! Is Jesus really mentioned here? Yes...Jesus is the solution to the binding of death, the bounds of hell, but why is Jesus growing?

    Ge 49:18 I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD.(KJV)

    Ge 49:18 I have waited for thy Yeshua, O Father-YHWH.(Ancient Hebrew)

    The Father presents Yeshua as a relationship to man gradually, and Yeshua grows slowly...why slowly? Because a sudden show of the Father's glory would destroy mankind with the Father's brightness... so Yeshua grows gradually in the former rains (OT), and comes to mankind personally in the latter rain (NT)...

    Powerful stuff this meaning in Ancient Hebrew, hey?

    The New Testament is difficult to link Greek to Hebrew because there is a lack of cross references to the OT Hebrew, nevertheless, the Author will show the reader a Greek word that means "relationship" ...

    1Co 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.(KJV)

    1Co 1:9 Elohiym is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the relationship of his Son Jesus Christ, our YHWH-Jesus.(Ancient Hebrew)

    What is the difference between "fellowship" and "relationship" ? Relationship is more closer, and intimate... as the Hebrew word "yada" means more than to know, it means to be "intimate" with something...to really know it like the "back of your hand"..

    2Co 13:14 The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all.(KJV)

    2Co 13:14 The grace of the YHWH Jesus Christ, and the maleness-love of Elohiym, and the relationship of the Holy Spirit, be with you all, (Ancient Hebrew)

    As believers, we must have relationship with Jesus, and relationship with the Holy Spirit, who is an agency for Jesus in us as relationship personally.

    Eph 3:9 And to make all men see what is the fellowship (koinonia) "relationship" of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:

    Paul writes the relationship was a mystery in Elohiym in the OT, the reason why Jews are blind, and cannot see Elohiym is a relationship word.

    And relationship was hid in Elohiym and all things created by Jesus, shows Jesus pre-existed, as relationship implies Elohiym is a family word that is highly relational.

    Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

  • 16 But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased. (KJV)

    Paul summarizes the steps of salvation through Jesus, but such a climax of meanings is spoiled by fuzzy translators:-

    Heb 13:15 By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

  • 16 Well-doing relationship forget not: for with such sa crifices Elohiym is well pleased.

    What is the climax of the salvational steps of Jesus? Well doing relationship is !!!

    Wow ! Our old nature has a broken relationship with the Holy Spirit who empowers life from the Father in us, but we master (baal) such power ourselves doing as we please. But Jesus invites us to hop (pacach - passover means hop-over) over to HIM, to a renewed relationship empowered by the Holy Spirit who is an agency for the breath of salvation from Jesus, whose relationship with us equips us to walk in relationship with our heavenly Father. Praise Elohiym ! Shalom

  • (2) Self can do nothing..

    That power He had laiddown, and He says, "I can of Mine own self do nothing." John 5:30. He trusted in the Father's might. Itwas in faith--faith in God's love and care--that Jesus rested, and the power of that word which stilledthe storm was the power of God.As Jesus rested by faith in the Father's care, so we are to rest in the care of our Saviour

    In the Greek the word "myself" "emautou" is a compound of two Greek words, forming "self" or "myself" but the Hebrew has no word for this concept?

    Even the cross reference gives us no clue:-

    Ro 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself (emautou) seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

  • 1Ki 19:18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

    The Author does not know this concept of "myself" in the Greek, the Hebrew does NOT use this concept of "myself". In the King James, the "me" is added by the translators (not found in the Hebrew) .. The Author suspects maybe the Greek word "emautou" might also be added for Greek readers to understand the NT Hebrew?

    A reason perhaps why Hebrew has no word for "self" or "myself" is Hebrew is concerned about functions, and "relationship" opposes "doing things by myself".

    So if Jesus had divine power inside himself, why does He use the Father's power via faith instead?

    The obvious reason is relationship. Everything about Elohiym is relational, including the use of power...there is no concept of using power from "self"...love does not work this way... "self love" does not exist with GOD, though humans can hyjack GOD's power of love and fake human use of power as coming from self... This is an abuse of relationship, hence our old relationship is broken and we become masters of our own power, abusing the God given relationship in us...

    But a fully restored spiritual relationship with GOD does not work that way...as man powers himself with divine masters of Jesus' power... God has relationship, and is never alone...

    Isa 44:6 ... and beside (bil`adey) me there is no God (Elohiym).

    Isa 44:8 ..Is there a God (elowaah) "heavenly Father" beside me? yea, there is no God (tsuwr) "foundation rock - simile of the Father" ; I know not any.

    Holy Writing verses say there is no other Elohiym, no other Father... but Elohiym is not alone... such a term is a Family of Strong Authorities, where love flows as a single source...

    (3) Ye are my witness..

    Not only did they tell their own households and neighbors about Jesus, but theywent throughout Decapolis, everywhere declaring His power to save, and describing how He had freedthem from the demons. In doing this work they could receive a greater

    Page 340

    blessing than if, merely for benefit to themselves, they had remained in His presence. It is in working tospread the good news of salvation that we are brought near to the Saviour

    Ex 23:12 (on Sabbath) ... and the stranger, may be refreshed (naphash). (KJV)

  • Ex 31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed (naphash). (KJV)
  • Col 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily (naphash), as to the Lord, and not unto men; (KJV)

    These verses use "soul" or "naphash" or "naphesh" in the VERB form rather than the NOUN form. The verse in the NT is the only one in a verb form ? and it NOT even translated by translators?

    In Hebrew words with the same spelling have the same meaning, but different actions completed, so the Author chose these two English words for "naphesh/naphash" :-

  • energize (verb form)
  • Energy (noun form)

    Thus our "soul" is the whole component of our "energy" in us. The verb form shows that energy is incomplete, and we energize ourselves, a similar meaning to refresh.

    This makes translation difficult in choice of words, but one must adhere to the Hebrew intent as closely as possible.

    Notice the Ancient Hebrew meanings:-

    Ex 23:12 (on Sabbath) ... and the stranger, may be energized (naphash). (Ancient Hebrew)

  • Ex 31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he "ceased" (Sabbath in verb form), and was energized (naphesh in verb form). Ancient Hebrew)
  • Col 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, (naphash) energized by the Lord, and not by men; (Ancient Hebrew)

    This now proves the SOP is inspired...for our living energy is energized only as we witness for Jesus... in other words our energy comes from Jesus, and it is by loving others that we receive love... indeed love is only generated when it is connected in a circuit... the power to energize leaves the saviour, travels through you as living energy and comes back to the battery source of energy which is Jesus...that's how love works...and salvation works... It is only through witnessing that our living energy is energized...

    Pr 11:25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.

    This verse says a similar thing, showing the SOP statement is correct, regarding our witness.

    (4) Witnessing for Jesus

    The two restored demoniacs were the first missionaries whom Christ sent to preach the gospel in theregion of Decapolis. For a few moments only these men had been privileged to hear the teachings ofChrist. Not one sermon from His lips had ever fallen upon their ears. They could not instruct the peopleas the disciples who had been daily with Christ were able to do. But they bore in their own persons theevidence that Jesus was the Messiah. They could tell what they knew; what they themselves had seen,and heard, and felt of the power of Christ.

    As witnesses for Christ, we are to tell what we know, what we ourselves have seen and heard andfelt. If we have been following Jesus step by step, we shall have something right to the point to tellconcerning the way in which He has led us. We can tell how we have tested His promise, and found thepromise true. We can bear witness to what we have known of the grace of Christ. This is the witnessfor which our Lord calls, and for want of which the world is perishing.

    When we have fruit worthy of notice from our heavenly Father, others will come to you for harvest, to inquire how you obtained such quality of character...

    Our witnessing is natural, we tell how we work with the Science of Salvation.
