Heavenly Father as parents

(1) De 32:15 But Jeshurun waxed fat , and kicked : thou art waxen fat , thou art grown thick , thou art covered with fatness; then he forsook God (elowahh) which made him, and lightly esteemed the Rock of his salvation .

then he forsook Father-God which made him..

Notice the Father is our Creator as well as our "Tsuwr" Rock of salvation just as Jesus is our Creator and our "Cela" Rock of salvation ! There are two Creators mentioned in Scripture.

(2) De 32:17 They sacrificed unto devils , not to God (elowahh) ; to gods whom they knew not, to new gods that came newly up , whom your fathers feared not.

They sacrificed unto devils , not to the Father-God ; to gods "elohiym's" - interesting the term Elohim be made plural...the term is already plural.. it's a plural plural. How can a term that's plural be made plural?

  • Think of "Family" family is made of persons plural, so families is more than one family.
  • Think of "Government" made of authorities, so Governments are whole systems of authorities.

    So the problem here is that the Israel people were not thinking of the heavenly Elohim as a family of gods with a Father god, but worshipping other systems of god (plural) at the same time....with different father gods.

    If Israel followed after a "trinity system" of gods with a Father chief god, it implies they had a "trinity system" of GOD as a Father chief God, but they chose to follow another system instead. Though some could argue that Israel dropped monotheism for polytheism. But why use the term "father or chief god" Eloah for a context to both monotheism and for polytheism ? The plural-plural of Elohim, suggests they dropped the true concept of a three persons of GOD in a Family, with a chief Father god, for an earthly false system of polytheism with a father god, that the heathen nations worshipped.

    (3) 2Ch 32:15 Now therefore let not Hezekiah deceive you, nor persuade you on this manner, neither yet believe him: for no god (elowahh) of any nation or kingdom was able to deliver his people out of mine hand , and out of the hand of my fathers : how much less shall your God deliver you out of mine hand ?

    for no Father of any nation

    Only the heavenly Father can truly save...

    (4) Ne 9:17 And refused to obey , neither were mindful of thy wonders that thou didst among them; but hardened their necks , and in their rebellion appointed a captain to return to their bondage : but thou art a God (elowahh) ready to pardon , gracious and merciful , slow to anger , and of great kindness , and forsookest them not.

    .. but thou art a Father ready to

    Our heavenly Father is ready to pardon ! gracious ! Kind and slow to anger !! Amazing !!

    (5) Job 3:4 Let that day be darkness ; let not God (elowahh) regard it from above , neither let the light shine upon it.

    .. let not the Father regard it

    (6) Job 3:23 Why is light given to a man whose way is hid , and whom God (elowahh) hath hedged in ?

    Why is light given to a man whose way is hid , and whom the Father hath hedged in ?

    (7) Job 4:9 By the blast of God (elowahh) they perish , and by the breath of his nostrils are they consumed .

    By the blast of the Father they perish, by the Wind ( a medium administrated by the Holy Spirit) of his nostrils are they consumed..

    Notice how the Father works harmoniously with the Holy Spirit, to reach the dysfunctional without destroying them utterly.

    blast of wind (Ruwach) of
    the Father they perish the Holy Spirit are they consumed

    A parallel here showing the Father is a simile of powers using the Holy Spirit...they work together...not that they are the same power...

    (8) Job 4:17 Shall mortal man be more just than God (elowahh) ? shall a man be more pure than his maker ?

    Shall mortal man be more just than the Father ?

    Mankind cannot rise higher than the Father. The Father is the highest strong authority there is.

    (9) Job 5:17 Behold, happy is the man whom God (elowahh) correcteth : therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty :

    Behold, happy is the man whom the Father correcteth, therefore despise not the chastening of the SHADDAY.

    the Father the SHADDAY
    correcteth chasteneth

    The poetry parallel makes the discipline of the Father a simile of the chastening of the Shadday. These are two members of the GODHEAD expressing united functional actions, like two parents in a Family would.

    They are not functions coming from a single Being. (Some people see poetry parallels as a distortion of equating one verse couplet with the other.)

    (10) Job 6:4 For the arrows of the Almighty are within me, the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit : the terrors of God (elowahh) do set themselves in array against me.

    .. the poison whereof drinketh up my spirit-character (administrated by the Holy Spirit) : the terrors of the Father do set themselves in array against me..

    the arrows the poison of the terrors of
    SHADDAY Ruwach (Holy Spirit) the Father

    Here in this poetry parallel the three elements are similes of each other. The arrows the Shadday is a simile of the poison of the Holy Spirit, is a simile of the terror of the Father, they are all processes of developing your character in the Father.

    They are not poetry couplets equating all three processes as coming from One Being, the Father only. The Father is a source of the power flow of character development, but there are several co-eternal Beings involved as well, working in harmony, as this poetry parallels suggest.
