Special Father

Context (1): Picture

The Father is described in the Special Scriptures like fire, lightning, plasma and extremely dense personal form of energy. Traditionally we assume "energy" is just masterialistic stuff, that cannot be created or destroyed. Nobody knows where energy comes from. Funny how man scoffs and prides itself with knowledge. Our Father must laugh...at our puny primitive pictures of the Divine. Energy is a Personal Being. We white pale skins have a mutation where our colour is switched off, our heavenly Father is a copper brown colour.

Re 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

  • 14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
  • 15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.

    The translation "fine brass" here would have been the Hebrew word for "copper", a brownish red colour, the same Hebrew word for "Adam" made from the "Reddish-brown" ground "Adamah".

    Eze 1:7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished brass.

    In Ezekiel, we have a description of the Shadday functioning as the Holy Spirit of wheels of transport, and the Son of Man (Jesus) on the throne of heaven speaking to the prophet in vision. Here is possibly the only Scripture description of the Heavenly Father, referenced as "YHWH" "He who exists":-

    Eze 1:26 ¶ And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it.

  • 27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and it had brightness round about.
  • 28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD.

    Hence the poor attempt of the Author to picture this scene as an image.

    Context (2): Name

    There are no names in Hebrew for things. Hebrew is about verbs, or actions, including our so called names. Hence the Author uses the term functional descriptor, is a term to describe the actions of the Hebrew word. The word "YHWH" means "He who exists" and is spelled according to Ancient Hebrew, which does have vowels sounds, is "YeFe".

    The most common functional descriptor of the heavenly Father in the NT is "ab", the Hebrew word meaning "The Strong one in the Home".

    In English, the best meaning for the Hebrew word "ab" is not "father" but more likely "provider", hence we have wrongly assumed the Heavenly Father is a simile of masculine gender, when the functional descriptor of "Our Provider" is more likely the meaning.

    The Hebrew-English translator, the SOP says

    In order to strengthen our confidence in God, Christ teaches us to address Him by a new name, a name entwined with the dearest associations of the human heart. He gives us the privilege of calling the infinite God our Father. "Asking to Give By Ellen G. White"

  • He pointed His hearers to the Ruler of the universe, under the new name, “Our Father.” He would have them understand how tenderly the heart of God yearned over them. He teaches ... that “like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him” (Psalm 103:13). Such a conception of God was never given to the world by any religion but that of the Bible.

    So if "ab" is the heavenly Father's new name, this implies the heavenly Father also had an old name. Few churches see "Eloah" as the old name for our heavenly Father.

    Now if our Bible was orginally written in Hebrew, rather than English, how can we read the Scriptures correctly unless we try to read the words in Hebrew? Sure we can rely on our Hebrew to English translator, and this does not mean the latter rain prophet Jesus sent only applies to one specific church, for there are many sheep in diferent folds, Jesus will call. So it does not matter which church you now belong to, only that we can be grateful for a Hebrew-English translator for us living in the last days.

    So here are a few Special Scriptures about the Father's old Name:-

    Job 4:9

  • By the blast of God (eloah) "Father" they perish,
  • and by the breath (ruwach) "Holy Spirit" of his nostrils are they consumed.

    The breath of the Father can impart living or destruction, and this is carried by the Holy Spirit, acting as a medium for the Father's power.

    Job 27:3 All the while my breath is in me, and the spirit (ruwach) "holy Spirit" of God (eloah) "Father" is in my nostrils;

    This verse says the same thing, the Father's breath of life is administrated by the Holy Spirit.

    Job 27:8 For what is the hope of the hypocrite, though he hath gained, when God (eloah) "Father" taketh away his soul(nephesh) "living energy"?

    Here this verse says the "Father's breath of life" keeps the "living energy" living. There are verb and noun spelling forms of "nepesh", having similar meanings, as all Hebrew verb and noun forms of the same spelling do. Hence the "verb" form is "energize" and the "noun" form is "living energy". If we think of a "soul" as "living energy" that is fine, but a "soul" cannot exist without the "Father's force" that empowers it to exist.

    Ps 18:31 For who is God (eloah) "Father" save the LORD (Father-YHWH) "our Father"? or who is a rock (tsuwr) "flint Father rock" save our God (elohiym) "Family powers"?

    Verses like this equate the Father as the flint foundation rock, and as "elohiym" as the foundation of family power.

    Pr 30:5 Every word (imrah) "Jesus personified" of God(eloah) "Father" is pure:

    The verse says when Jesus speaks, He speaks the words of His Father. Now the Author predicts the Greek has no Greek word for "imrah" and so used "logus" instead? Is this what John, a Hebrew wrote when He wrote John 1:1 in Hebrew orginally? Obviously..

    Hard for the Author to check to LXX for any verse as they number them differently, but here is Isaiah 32:9 in the LXX Septuingt Greek translation:-

    So how can anyone make the Greek NT into a pure copy of the Words of the Father, unless we line up the latter rain with the former rain. Thus John 1:1 would have been this in Hebrew:-

    Joh 1:1 ¶ In the beginning was the word (imrah) "Jesus personified", and the word (imrah) "Jesus personified" was with God (elohiym) "Family powers", and the word (imrah) "Jesus personified" was God (elohiym) "Family powers".

    John makes it very clear, that Jesus was of Elohiym, and with Elohiym from the beginning of eternity, hence why he uses the same verse beginning as Genesis 1:1.

    Context (3): Multiple meanings

    Sometimes Hebrew words have multiple meanings. The Hebrew word "ab" can mean "Father" or "Fruit". A secular reason for this is the father was often a nomad, and would bring home for his children treats. Thus the children associated their dad as a provider of fruit. There is also a Divine Reason for "ab" having multiple meanings like this.

    Ps 89:26 He shall cry unto me, Thou art my father (ab), my God (el) "Strong authority", and the rock (tsuwr) "Father rock" of my salvation (Yashua) "rescue".

    The KJV does nor see "ab" as our Heavenly Father, who is a Strong Authority, and leads our salvation.

    Pr 6:20 ¶ My son, keep thy father's (ab) commandment (mitsvah), and forsake not the law (towrah) of thy mother (em):

  • 21 Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
  • 22 When thou goest, it shall lead thee; when thou sleepest, it shall keep thee; and when thou awakest, it shall talk with thee.
  • 23 For the commandment (mitsvah) is a lamp; and the law (towrah) is light; and reproofs of instruction are the way of life:

    Here is some poetry similes about our Heavenly Father, and the simile objects He gave to us, the Ten Commandments. This is a simile of a lamp. Notice the teachings (towrah) are a simile of a heavenly mother, and this is the "light" that comes forth from the "lamp". From this poetry we see Elohiym, in simile pictures of "father" and "mother", as well as "commandments" and "Teachings", like the "lamp" and it's "light". This is the Hebrew way of describing Elohiym as a Family of action, or functions, not descriptions of how Elohiym might look.

    For example "love" in Hebrew is two words, not one as in English, and we should expect this, for if Elohiym is "love", there should be two heavenly parents having unique personalities of loving. The the Father loves uniquely and differently to the way the Holy Spirit loves, and the Son responds to love also differently and uniquely.

    Mal 2:10 ¶ Have we not all one father (ab)? hath not one God (el) "strong authority" created us?

    Here the Father created us, and one Strong Authority created us. The Hebrew word "echad" does not mean "single numerical one", otherwise the only Strong Authority in Elohiym is the Father. From a study of "Echad", the word means "unity of parts as a unit". One can see why the Jews saw "Elohiym" as "numerically one" because in Hebrew a "Father" and a "Mother" are the same "numerically one Being", although we know they have different personalities of loving. This is a strange way for Western eyes to view a Family.

    Song 6:11 ¶ I went down into the garden of nuts to see the fruits (ab) of the valley, and to see whether the vine flourished, and the pomegranates budded.

    The spelling of this Hebrew word is "ab" not "eb" as Strong's like to point out, is the same Hebrew word as "Father" "Ab". This is significant because of verses like this:-

    Ga 5:22 But the fruit (ab) "Heavenly Father" of the Spirit(ruwach) "Holy Spirit" is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

  • 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

    Does this harmony of Scripture surprise the reader? We saw already the "father" and "mother" as similes of the "commandments" and "teachings" that come as "salvation". Now we see the "Father's fruit" coming to us via the "Holy Spirit as a simile of a Mother" from following Elohiym, termed in the New Testament as a Heavenly Family, and their Son Jesus, who continues this Family love forever among the redeemed children adopted into the Family of Elohiym.
