Q36: Welcome to prayer training by Jesus..

Understand the childlike foundations first:-

  • (1) How to support Jesus
  • (2) Former rains in Jesus
  • (3) Latter rains in Jesus

    (4) Deeper prayer training.

  • Consider prayer 32:-

    Blessed is he whose transgression (pesha) "transgression" is forgiven (nasa) "lifted away", whose sin (chataah) "sin-offering" is covered (kacah) "covered".

  • 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD imputeth (chashab) "design" not iniquity (avon) "guilt", and in whose spirit (ruwach) "character administrated by the Holy Spirit" there is no guile (ramiyah)`"deceitful or slothful". (KJV)

    This is a complex opening prayer by David, concerning the forgiveness process. The meanings explained by Jeff Benner shown in quotation marks is to be confirmed by the Author. A better translation reads:

    The blessed have transgressions lifted away: their sin-offerings covered.

  • 2 The blessed man, the LORD designs not guilt unto our (characters administrated by the Holy Spirit) , there is no deceit or slothfulness. (Ancient Hebrew)

    Assuming Jeff Benner's studies are correct, the forgiveness process begins with our transgressions, literally when we break the directions of the Father's Ten Commendments. Some say this is when David committed adultery with Bathsheba. Such wrong is a transgression, a deliberate act of trampling upon God's directions, a sin known to yourself and known to others around you. That's what a transgression is. David prays for his transgression to be lifted away. This is an image used by NASA playing on the Hebrew word spelt the same, lifting away our heavy transgressions like a super space rocket.

    The second phase of forgiveness is having our sin-offerings covered. This is the Hebrew word "chataah". This Hebrew word is related to "chata", the concept of missing relationship. Now the sinning is less obvious to those around us, and even to ourselves, the most common missing we do is missing out on God's power flowing through our lives. So our actions of sinning or missing, has to be confessed to honestly and packaged unto a sinbearer, who lifts away our missing, and restores our relationship to GOD. Thus the action of forgiveness comes a little closer to your heart, you have to specifically acknowledge your missing and pray to your Sin Bearer in prayer to remove each confessed sin.

    Let's go through David's prayer of forgiveness for deeper clarity.

    Trangression. 6588. The pictograph reads "The mouth presses the eye". This is a strange meaning. Jeff Benner has "revolt" for verb form and "revolution" for noun form. The Author prefers "transgress" for verb form and "transgression" for noun form. Some contexts are:-

    Isa 57:4 Against whom do ye sport yourselves? against whom make ye a wide mouth, and draw out the tongue? are ye not children of transgression, a seed of falsehood,

  • 5 Enflaming yourselves with idols under every green tree, slaying the children in the valleys under the clifts of the rocks (cela) "Jesus-rock"?

    This verse speaks of the mouth pressed, where the eyes see idols, that children are born boys of transgression. What is strange is mankind slay these younger generations under the presence of Jesus, the "cela" rock , but in this context, referring to the transgressors is a simile of their pride, the attitude that opposes having a relationship with Jesus. What irony.

    Job 7:21 And why dost thou not pardon (nasa) "lift away" my transgression, and take away mine iniquity (avon) "guilt"? for now shall I sleep in the dust; and thou shalt seek me in the morning, but I shall not be. (KJV)

    Job is the oldest use of transgression. He laments being born, after this tragedy comes over him.

    Ex 22:9 For all manner of trespass, whether it be for ox, for ass, for sheep, for raiment, or for any manner of lost thing, which another challengeth to be his, the cause of both parties shall come before the judges; and whom the judges shall condemn, he shall pay double unto his neighbour.

    These judgements flow from the direction :"No stealing", one of the Ten Commandments. Notice the transgressor is to compensate his neighbour double for the loss if the transgression involves his neighbours property.

    Jos 24:19 And Joshua(Yashua) "Joshua as a type for Jesus" said unto the people, Ye cannot serve the LORD (YHWH) "Father-YHWH" : for he is an holy God (elohiym) "family power"; he is a jealous God (el) "Strong Authority"; he will not forgive your transgressions (pesha) nor your sins (chataah) "Sin-offerings". (KJV)

    Joshua is a type for Jesus, the "Yashua" in the OT who saves "yasha" (See Matthew 1:21). Notice the Father lifts away our transgressions and our sin-offerings, as long as we serve the Heavenly Family Power of GOD.

    Where does Scripture picture "elohiym" as a "family picture"?

    Eph 3:10 To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God (elohiym) ,

    11 According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord (YHWH) :

    Eph 3:14 � For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord (YHWH) Jesus Christ,

    15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,

    16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit (Holy Spirit) in the inner man;

    Sadly translated from Hebrew into Greek, much of the OT glory of Hebrew pictures is lost in the Greek. Study how the LXX Septuingt treats words like "adown", "adonay", "baal" and "YHWH" translating them all into one word: "kurios", for example.

    However this is the only place in the Bible, where Elohiym is pictured as "family".

    This reminds the Author of people who mock scripture when evaluating Bible theories.

    Evaluation of a theory

    Everything in Scripture is an evaluation of theories of faith.

    Eze 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the house of Israel;

    Son of man, are poetry similes of Jesus, or Jesus' representatives on earth with His messages, notice these messages comes as poetry comparisons (parables) or riddles. The messages are hidden.

    Eze 24:3 And utter a parable unto the rebellious house,

    Why are the messages hidden? Because the followers of GOD are rebellious.

    Mt 13:13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.

    So understanding Scripture begins with the Holy Spirit, with prayer and a sincere desire to know Jesus and the Family of GOD.

    So if the reader does not have an intense desire to know Elohiym as a divine heavenly family of power, you will get confused by other humans who pride themselves in their wanton scholarship, or you'll get confused by fuzzy readings of Scripture caused by human translators, or get personally confused because you do not ask the Holy Spirit to help you.

    It has been suggested that the name or designation for God �Shadday� is a reference to the Holy Spirit as the third person of the Godhead. In order to investigate and assess such a theory, the following questions are raised:

    Traditionally SDA people do not read their Bibles in Hebrew, they implicitly trust translations in English. The Author is sad by this; for I too, used to read Scripture in English, trusting my translator, as a babe for over 30 years.

    2Ti 2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes.

    This verse says not to start up foolish unlearned questions about gender issues in Scripture. Paul knew certain things were not well established, and said this...Only recently has our SDA Church made public in our creed, that the Holy Spirit is a "he" whatever that term means. So it comes a time to speak out against foolishness when the Church does this, and so the Author is forced to make clear the mysteries where Paul says we should avoid.

    1. Does any of the actual occurrences of the term in the Old Testament explicitly point to or mention the Holy Spirit?

    Well let's use this claim for Jesus... Are there any clear references to Jesus in the OT? Are there any clear references to Jesus as YHWH in the NT ?

    Now what about our heavenly Father? We assume the heavenly Father is a "he" whatever that term means? Are there any clear references to the Father as a He? This is "gender male"? No there are no Scriptures concerning this. We have assumed these pictures based on human traditions and commandments of men. We assume the grammar cases of Hebrew using masculine pictures makes our Father masculine.

    The Hebrew word "ab" may not mean "father" anyway, but more likely means "Provider". That makes more sense to say "ahab-love" "provides", rather than say such love is aligned with gender masculine functions.

    In the beginning, Elohiym created family kinds as gender male and gender female for a reason, so the functional ways of loving is packaged into two personalities of love. This pictures something about love in it's two forms, and gives insight into Elohiym who is beyond time, matter and space.

    To substantiate the claim it would be expected that the link is very clear in a fair number of the texts.

    Scripture often has only a single text for special themes:

    (1) How does one get more faith? (Ex 17:12) The first mention of "faith" is not is even translated by any translator, yet gives a clear meaning for "faith".

    (2) People live by their faith (Hab 2:4) One text in the OT. Paul expands this one text in the NT, as a salvational theme.

    (3) Godhead theme (Rom 1:20) One text in the NT. The concept of Elohiym is lost by fuzzy translations in the OT, when reading Job, the oldest book in the Bible.

    (4) Elohiym is a heavenly family, (Eph 3:15,16) One text in the NT. Not found in the OT. It seems Jesus becomes the Son who continues the family love only after rising from the Cross.

    (5) How to study scripture correctly (Is 28:13) One passage in the OT. We should study Scripture in child like doses one line at a time.

    (6) Salvational steps to Jesus (Hosea 14:1,2) One passage in the OT. Such a grand theme is mentioned only once in the Bible, with all the steps mentioned for a sinner to be saved by Jesus.

    (7) Second birth of salvation by the Holy Spirit (Ps 51:10,11) Only one passage explains how Jesus said ye must be born again.

    These are some truly major themes in Scripture, all of them founded on one Scripture passage or text. There are dozens of themes established on a single text in Scripture. For example, Jacob's Trouble, Third Coming of Jesus, and the Shaking of the Church at the end of time, to name a few.

    2. Does any of the many references to the Holy Spirit in the New Testament where the role and function of the third person of the Godhead is more fully explained by Jesus and the apostles, refer to �Shadday� or to a term or concepts which naturally are understood as pointing to this Old Testament, Hebrew name for God?

    Now we assume people in the New Testament know the Scriptures in old Hebrew from the Old Testament. God knows, but do the common people know? Did Ellen White know Hebrew and write Hebrew in her English ? No, but God did and wrote Hebrew concepts in her English. The common people would not have known the old Hebrew names for Elohiym, but God would have written these Names in the NT. The person who wrote this statement is making Scripture follow popular lines of human reasoning. Let me give you an example:

    "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. This name, spoken to Him and of Him, is a sign of our love and trust toward Him, and a pledge of His regard and relationship to us. Spoken when asking His favor or blessing, it is as music in His ears. That we might not think it presumption to call Him by this name, He has repeated it again and again. He desires us to become familiar with the appellation. {COL 141.4} "

    The SOP tells us the Most High in the NT is referenced as "Father" as a "New Name", this tells us the Most High was referenced in the OT as an "Old Name". Do any Christian demoninations today know this? None, maybe a few? The SDA creed about "God the Father" does not use a single reference to the "Old Name for the Most High". Why not? Because no translator translates this Name for the Most High, it has become lost. But it was not lost by the SOP, because GOD inspired the writing of Hebrew into English.

    Once again, to substantiate the claim and establish the theory, it would be expected that such a link is clear and explicit in a number of texts.

    Such a person is saying I am a common man, and I expect GOD to make the plans of salvation simple and easy to read. Is Scripture like this? No. Scripture truths are hiddens like gold nuggets, you have to carefully did them up. Did Jesus give the Jews a clear understanding of His mission as the Son of God? No. The Jews kept asking Him for signs and wonders in front of their eyes. But Jesus kept truth hidden all the time He was on earth, only revealing it gradually to babes who accepted him.

    Joh 16:12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

    Jesus spoke little about salvation details to His followers because they could not bear all the details. Many things were left out by Jesus. That's why Paul wrote:

    2Ti 2:23 But foolish and unlearned questions avoid, knowing that they do gender strifes. (KJV)

    Mysteries are made known to true followers of Jesus, but for many of us as babes not wanting more and more truth, drinking on milk, we remain unlearned.

    Heb 5:13 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.

  • 14 But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil. (KJV)

    Mt 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. (KJV)

    So if we do not fathom the Most High's old name, how can we fathom the Holy Spirit's Old Name as well? And if Elohiym is pictured in the NT as a "Family" this implies the Godhead are similes of "divine parents", do we go looking for two Old Testament Names? It is only logical to expect this, as we discover truth in small child like doses, one line at a time.

    And you will not find truth unless you dig up the Bible in it's Hebrew, not in a human translation.

    Procedure In the process of assessing the theory, I have asked a present lecturer in Old Testament studies, expert in biblical languages and competent SDA theologian to read through the material independent of me, in order not to evaluate the theory single-handed. This scholar has given a large number of specific comments on the biblical texts and written them into the electronic manuscript received. The conclusions listed below form a consensus position.

    Wow, we use human scholars, who have scholarship in Hebrew, to evaluate Scripture for us... Is this a good idea? No.

    Isa 29:12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.(KJV)

    The Bible raises this question, so what is the answer as Scripture defines the solution?

    Isa 29:13 Wherefore the Lord (adonay) "Lord Jesus" said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men:

    Jesus condemns the use of scholarship to read our Bibles for us. Why? Because humans are biased and they teach according to the commandments and traditions of men.

    For example, one of my best friends was the SDA college lecturer of Biblical studies, and we emailed sometimes, but never agreed with understanding Hebrew. He told me to buy James Barr, a book that speaks of Hebrew related and child roots being a fallacy. Such a human theory totally destroys Hebrew meaning. Yet this human tradition is all over the schools of scholarship in every church demonination.

    The Author was glad to have found Jeff Benner and his Ancient Hebrew Research Center, we at least, both agree that Hebrew has a single basic meaning for each word, and that words are related to each other by their pictographs. No scholar will agree with this idea about Hebrew today, and maybe only a few might privately.

    So expect to clash with scholars and their scholarship. How does Scripture answer this problem of reading Scripture?

    Isa 29:14 Therefore, behold, I will proceed to do a marvellous work among this people, even a marvellous work and a wonder: for the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their prudent men shall be hid. (KJV)

    Jesus will do a wonder among His true followers...what wonder is this?

    Isa 29:18 And in that day shall the deaf hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of obscurity, and out of darkness.

  • 19 The meek also shall increase their joy in the LORD,...

    The words of Hebrew shall become plain to our eyes, and we shall see "Truth" correctly as penned by GOD through men.

    Isa 29:24 They also that erred in spirit shall come to understanding, and they that murmured shall learn doctrine. (KJV)

    Notice the Author does not wander all over Scripture, major themes should be answered in one place. You will come to understand, if you come ask the Holy Spirit to tutor you with understanding. You and your Bible alone with GOD by your side. No Strong's. No Human Dictionaries. Scripture and Scripture alone.

    No reading our Bibles in English, but reading it in Hebrew, both OT and NT in Hebrew. Align the former and latter rains of Jesus, the former and latter teachings that came down to us as rain.

    How do I do this? Use this simple method, God inspired me to purchase. An electronic Bible.

    Now let's get back to investigating all the Hebrew words in this prayer of forgiveness:

    Nasa. Lift away. 5375. Pictograph reads "Over the nations are the prickles strong".

    The thorn or prickly is a simile of sin.

    This is a fascinating study about the "thorn" letter. Shalom

    Chataah. Sin-offering. 2401. 2402. 2403. Pictograph reads: "The outside covering strong. Behold the Person!"

    Note a similar word meaning "missing":

    The pictograph reads: "The outside covering strong".

    The difference between these two Hebrew words is the added letter "hey" meaning the Person, who covers your sinning with His covering of beauty. Thus "chataah" is about confessing your "missing" or "sinning" unto Jesus, who lifts away your broken relationship, by connecting to you again, and forgiving you for missing out on His power flow, and doing your own thing instead.

    Blessed is he whose transgression is lifted away, whose sin-offering is covered (Ancient Hebrew)

    Notice the "outside covering strong" broken by you as a sinner, now cofessed unto the "sin-bearer: Jesus "Behold the Person!" has to have your "sin-offering" "covered".

    If you look up this word, there are some good clues to the meaning of "covered".

    Le 16:13 And he shall put the incense upon the fire before the LORD, that the cloud of the incense may cover the mercy seat that is upon the testimony, that he die not:

    The purpose of coverings is to keep you living...the function of missing is about breaking this covering, you so must be forever dead, a state of non-existence. God in his mercy allows your broken covering to keep you living for a while, to see if you pray for the Sin-bearer to give you His covering that is unbroken to replace your covering that is broken. Notice the "incense" was over the mercy seat as a covering. "Incense" is a simile of praying. We are continually praying to Jesus to cover us with His covering.

    Looking up all the references to "cover" is a most interesting study. Shalom

    Imputed. 2803. The pictograph reads: "The outside pressed home". This Hebrew word has two forms, the verb form and the noun form, where both must have similar meanings.

    Let's look at the noun form first for a clue to meaning:

    Ex 28:8 And the curious girdle of the ephod, which is upon it, shall be of the same, according to the work thereof; even of gold, of blue, and purple, and scarlet, and fine twined linen.

    "And the curious "design" of the ephod...

    All eight verses refer to the "design" of the ephod.

    Now the verb form, the Author sees as "design". For example a sentence with both of these word forms of the same basic meaning would be:

    "Be careful how you design the design of the ephod".

    Other examples are :

    Design a vail of designed work (Ex: 26:31)

    "Let the maleness-love of a doe satisify you with her breasts at all times, so be ravished continually with her femaleness-love (Proverbs 5:19)" (here are both Hebrew words for love expressed on the same gender, a female). Notice in this context, maleness-love from the gender female provides, and femaleness-love from the gender female responds. This is why there are two Hebrew love words in Scripture. Shalom

    The Lord maleness-loved thee with everlasting femaleness-love (Jer 31:3) (Both Hebrew words about love referencing God) Notice one member of Elohiym can provide love and also respond to love, this shows why Elohiym engineered living kinds as two personalities of loving each other. Shalom

    God delivered Israel into the spoilers who spoiled them (Judges 2:14)

    Let the earth bring forth seeding seed(Gen 1:11)

    Let the waters have swarming swarms (Gen 1:20)

    "Record this as a record"(3 John 1: 12)

    "Should we plough all day with the plough? ( Isa 28:24 )"

    These are a few the Author remembers throughout Scripture. While Hebrew has two different words meaning "love", Hebrew does not have verb and noun forms of these "love words". However in English we do have verb and noun forms of "love".

    He went to love her with his love.

    This is a good English example showing both love words mean the basic same idea, but such examples do not exist with the concept of either "love word" in the Scriptures.

    Back to the verb form of "Design":-

    Ge 15:6 And he believed in the LORD; and he counted it to him for righteousness.

    Translating can be a tricky business, so often we feel for the KJV which does a good job considering the strange contexts of Hebrew.

    Ge 15:6 And Abram supported the LORD-Jesus; and Jesus designed in him straightness.

    See the problem with context? What does this mean? When you support Jesus, Jesus designs you. That would mean Jesus takes your character, rough and unpolished, full of dross and crookedness, and cuts, forms and works your character carefully designing designs of straightness in it, until your design is complete. Hebrew pictures things with so few words it is poetry confusion. But join together all other poetry pictures along simile themes, and pictures start to make sense.

    For more see studies of "support" .

    Ex 26:1 Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning(chashab) "designed" work shalt thou make them.

    Contexts like this helps us see the verb form of design, means the "designed work" in English we would call embroidery.

    Le 7:18 And if any of the flesh of the sacrifice of his peace offerings be eaten at all on the third day, it shall not be accepted, neither shall it be imputed (chashab) "designed" unto him that offereth it: it shall be an abomination, and the soul that eateth of it shall bear(nasa) "lift away" his iniquity(avon) "guilt". (KJV)

    Doing sacrifice, confession and prayer correctly allows Jesus to do embroidery with our character, designing it with straight designs, lifting away our guilt, but if you do forgiveness incorrectly your guilt is not lifted away. (Lev 7: 18 paraphase)

    Notice the Hebrew word "nasa" is meant as it's opposite meaning, due to the context. Luckily English words do not do this, but Hebrew words sometimes does this.

    Ps 36:4 He deviseth (chashab) "designs" mischief (aven) "propensities" upon his bed; he setteth himself in a way (derek) "road" that is not good; he abhorreth not evil (ra) "dysfunction". (KJV)

    A dysfunctional man designs propensities..(Ancient Hebrew)

    This is a firm understanding of "design", when you design propensities, these epi-genetic habits work through your character as crookedness that is near impossible to remove.

    For more see studies on propensities.

    In other contexts the Author notes "counted" rather than "designed", but the Author seems to remember Hebrew people embroided marks on things to count with, not as we do counting in our head, I suspect Hebrew people counted with knots on strings, or wove designs in fabric as a permanent way of counting or designing the number of knots. Hence "counting" is used by the KJV as a context for "design" in some verses.

    Ps 40:17 But I am poor and needy; yet the Lord thinketh upon me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my God. (KJV)

    Ps 40:17 But I am humble and needy; yet the Adonay-Jesus designs me: thou art my help and my deliverer; make no tarrying, O my Elohiym. (Ancient Hebrew)

    Only when we are humble and needy for Jesus, does Jesus do designs of His design in our character, as our helper for the Family of GOD.

    Ps 44:22 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted "designed" as sheep for the slaughter.

    Here the KJV makes a difficult translation. How is a sheep counted for slaughter? Sure as a sheep labourer years ago running sheep up a race we count those off we wish to kill. But this is not the context here. We are killed all the day long, because we as sheep are designed differently from other common looking sheep.

    Have you noticed when your design of character stands out from the crowd, the Masons will kill you for this, because your influence is affecting their business work of religion.

    Health doctors die from from so called mysterious causes.

    Michael Jackson was killed after his song "all I wanna say is, they don't really care about us".

    Treating cancer is really easy, but if you set up a clinic, your business is shut down, or your life expectancy goes down.

    Ps 73:16 When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; (KJV)

    Ps 73:16 When I design intimacy, it is laborious for my eye; (Ancient Hebrew)

    A difficult context, the KJV ignores the Hebrew words obvious meanings. When you do embroidery it is hard laborious work for the eye. And neck. And fingers. But there are other possible poetry pictures with this context too, as the KJV tries to bring out?

    Ps 119:59 I thought on my ways, and turned my feet unto thy testimonies.(KJV)

    Ps 119:59 I design my road, turning my feet as a witness.(Ancient Hebrew)

    Hebrew is a concrete, literal language. When we walk down our road, we embroid a permanent design to our life, our influence and our witness. Be careful how you walk your road and the designs you work. This is especially true on Sabbath, a special day of ceasing, where you design designs with Jesus on your mind all this special day.

    Ps 140:2 Which imagine "design" mischiefs (ra) "dysfunction" in their heart; continually (yowm) "daily" are they gathered together for war.

  • 3 They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders' poison is under their lips. Selah.

    When you design dysfunction in your heart daily, such a design is permanent, and near impossible to remove by yourself, a propensity is unleashed. Notice this is a "war of words". Words are powerful constructs if spoken as "support unto the Lord", but otherwise foolishness to those who seek righteousness.

    Pr 16:9 A man's heart deviseth his way: but the LORD directeth his steps. (KJV)

    Pr 16:9 A man's heart designs his road: but the LORD firms his paces. (Ancient Hebrew)

    A different meaning when you align correct meanings to each Hebrew word. When you design your road for designs, the Lord Jesus firms the paces you make. In other words He makes sure your design is designed correctly with Him in mind, every step of the way.

    Isa 2:22 Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted (chashab) "designed" of? (KJV)

    Mankind needs to take account of who he is: protein molecules cunningly designed as a living design by Elohiym. Beware of evolution, the idea we are pond scum rising proudly to engineer lofty cities because we can as our own god.

    Isa 29:15 Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us?

  • 16 Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed "designed" as the potter's clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?

    Did not a Divine Designer design us from the ground like living pots of clay? We do dare to say we just evolved randomly from the ground? Have we no fear of the Designer who designed us with incredible design?

    Isa 32:15 Until the spirit (ruwach) "holy Spirit" be poured upon us from on high, and the wilderness be a fruitful field, and the fruitful field be counted "designed" for a forest.

    The Hebrew word "forest" here has the pictograph meaning "The active crooked head" refers to humans the Holy Spirit has to straighten our using the Lord Jesus' power from the Father, so we trees of the field become a wonderfully designed forest.

    Is the reader getting a little excited how wonderful the prayers of David are? Pictures of poetry with sublime meaning?

    Let's put these poetry prayer pictures together about forgiveness as a process:-

    Blessed is he whose transgression is lifted away, whose sin-offering is covered.

  • 2 Blessed is the man unto whom the LORD designs no guilt, and in whose "character administrated by the Holy Spirit" has no deceit or slothfulness. (Ancient Hebrew)

    Let's write this prayer again with positive lines rather than positive contrasted with negative, as Hebrew does.

    Blessed is a person whose transgression is lifted away, whose sin-offering is covered by Jesus;

  • 2 Because Jesus designs our "character administrated by the Holy Spirit" with no guilt, no deceit and no slothfulness. (Ancient Hebrew)

    In other words Jesus works His design in us, so we become a straight embroidery of His design.

    Notice the pictograph meaning of the last Hebrew word:

    Strong's 7423. "The head of man flows with active hands towards the Saviour. Behold the Being!"

    Let's try a Science Hypothesis: Can this prayer promise make sense at the pictograph level?

    Ps 32:1

    Ps 32:2 {YHWH-Jesus} {no}

    Jeff Benner's Lexicon dictionary does not show the "sacred name", so the Author adds {YHWH-Jesus} instead. Remember Hebrew is read right to left, for each word, so here is the meaning of this prayer of forgiveness read following the pictographs:

    Ps 32:1 The (divine) authority presses (your) head, (your) mouth pressed (your) eye (sees) , over the nations, the prickles (are) strong, outside the covering is strong. Behold the Person of Jesus! With palms (on my) prickles. Behold the Person of Jesus!

    Ps 32:2 The (divine) authority presses (your) head, the strong door (of your mind) flows, the YHWH-Jesus, outside presses (you) home, {not with} twisting secure, (but whose) head secured outside (your character administrated by the Holy Spirit), (your) head flows actively (with the doings of your hands) (towards) the Being Behold! (Jesus, your Saviour).

    Now at the pictograph level, is the prayer of forgiveness David prays, make sense? We think it does.

    Ps 32:1 The divine authority of Jesus presses your head, so your mouth is pressed and your eye sees. This is what your transgressions should do to you, make your mouth stop talking and making excuses and your eyes see what you have done wrong. Over the nations of mankind, the prickles are strong. This is a picture of sin. And while "nasa" means to lift away, it also means "over the nations are sins strong". Outside the covering is strong, Behold Jesus. This picture is about the strong covering Jesus replaces with your broken covering of sin that is also strong over you. The last Hebrew word is very important in this verse. My palms have prickles, Behold the Person of Jesus! So what happens when you have prickles on your palms of your hands? They are removed by Jesus, who ends up with prickles on His hands. Grass bindi is a good example of this, removing them from your skins only transfers them to your fingers. Notice the eternal sacrifice Jesus is offering you with your prickles.

    Zec 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. (KJV)

    The wounds on Jesus palms remain forever as a reminder of the eternal sacrifice offered for your living with Him.

    Ps 32:2 The divine authority of Jesus presses your head, the strong door of your mind flows. The picture of "adam" is the "Strong door of your mind flows". The door pictograph refers mostly to the door of our mind, where influences flow in and consequences flow out.

    The YHWH-Jesus outside presses you home. This is what the word "design" means, or "impute" if you trust translators with another English word. The pictograph meaning is "Jesus is outside (in heaven), pressing you home".

    Not with twisting secure, aptly defines our guilt.

    The head secured outside. This is a picture of the word "ruwach". Here the pictograph "head" can refer to "you" or "members of the Godhead", as "power transfers" pictured as "wind" or "Spirit". Your head is secured by tent pegs so the wind outside does not blow you away. The tent peg is often used to reference our Father in heaven who secures us from the winds of strife outside that try to blow us away.

    This is a picture of your spirit or character, how well you stand up under tribulation or winds of strife.

    This picture is also a picture of the Holy Spirit, who administrates Jesus outside pressing you home, now presses Jesus to His home, inside. The Holy Spirit "lives" inside of us, in some mysterious way, empowering the flow of Jesus outside, bringing it inside.

    Poetry pictures are exciting, complex, and with many levels of application. That's a fun thing with poetry. People can see different things with poetry. Over half the Bible is full of poetry, so we better get used to poetry pictures.

    The last Hebrew word has your head flowing actively with hands doing Jesus work.

    How deep and intensely interesting is the prayer of forgiveness David prays to YHWH-Jesus for. Amazing and wonderful. Notice a (few words in brackets) are added here and there to make the pictographs read with less confusion for our readers.

    Would this pictograph reading work for all cases of Scripture? I doubt it. An SDA scholar of expert scholarship challenged the Author one day during an forum discussion, baffled the Author completely. So mockers love to mock. Do so if you want to. Personally the only purpose of reading Scripture at all is to get more and more of Jesus flowing through our lives. Nothing else matters. So the Author does not care for knowledge, or Hebrew grammar, or speaking Hebrew... the only thing that matters is relationship. Let's talk about relationship. How is your flow of Jesus in you? The prayer is worth repeating:-

    Ps 32:1

    His authority presses your head

    Your mouth pressed, you see

    Over nations, prickles strong

    Outside covering strong. Behold Jesus!

    On His Palms are your pickles. Behold Jesus! (who covers you).

    Ps 32:2

    His authority presses your head

    Strong door (your mind) flows


    Outside presses home (his design)

    {no} twisting secure (our guilt)

    The HEAD secure outside

    Your head flows actively towards Jesus!

    The rest of David's prayer is exciting too, but the reader needs to learn the joy of digging for treasure and learn firsthand the joy of finding gemstones in Jesus words. Shalom

    For readers who follow Seventh Day Adventist culture, there is an idiom used by lots of SDA people; the so called "imputed and imparted righteousness of Christ". There are dozens of this term used in SOP writings designed to confuse readers who want to be proud. Why would the SOP, a Hebrew to English translator, want to confuse us? or make us proud? so we actually end up opposing God? Same reason Scripture confuses us.

    So how many passages does the SOP as a Hebrew English translator use to define "chashab" correctly? Only one passage. Strange when so many SDA people of the common man want, even demand lots of plain clear texts on important themes. Really. One must dig for treasure carefully, to avoid confusion.

    So without further ado, here is the Hebrew English translation of the Hebrew word "chashab":-

    "The sinner so recently dead in trespasses and sins is quickened by faith in Christ. He sees by faith that Jesus is his Saviour, and alive forevermore, able to save unto the uttermost all that come unto God by him. In the atonement made for him the believer sees such breadth, and length, and height, and depth of efficiency,�sees such completeness of salvation, purchased at such infinite cost, that his soul is filled with praise and thanksgiving. He sees as in a glass the glory of the Lord, and is changed into the same image as by the Spirit of the Lord. He sees the robe of Christ's righteousness, woven in the loom of heaven, wrought by his obedience, and imputed to the repenting soul through faith in his name. When the sinner has a view of the matchless charms of Jesus, sin no longer looks attractive to him; for he beholds the Chiefest among ten thousand, the One altogether lovely. He realizes by a personal experience the power of the gospel, whose vastness of design is equaled only by its preciousness of purpose." The Signs of the Times July 4, 1892"

    Does the Hebrew English translator translate the meaning of "chashab" correctly? O Yes and more. This passage is so deep so wonderfully complex, it would take the Author scores of passages of explain it's simplicity in this one passage. How beautiful is this English passage. How profound the messages. Jesus designs us into His Design, an embroidery worthy for the loom of heaven. Shalom

    Next we consider prayer 33.
