Seven Names of God in Hebrew:
In medieval times, God was sometimes called The Seven, referring to the seven major names by which he was known among the Jews. Each of the names was considered sacred. The seven names for the deity over which the ancient scribes were instructed to exercise particular care were:
1. YHWH (i.e. Jehovah)
Check this out Sistren/Brethren, God’s Love did not cost us a penny, IT is FREE! Amen.
When you think of it, it truly is amazing your children, wards, family in TRUE love never need pay you back. A simple thank you – heartfelt; is ALL you need! The fact that they are doing well is ALL you need,
And to be doing AWESOME? Is unspeakable!
We were created by Love!
And, Yes, we traded away our place in God’s grace.
The Snake Tempts Eve
Let’s examine the sequence of events here. First, the snake convinces Eve to eat fruit from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil by arguing that God lied — that she and Adam wouldn’t die but would instead have their eyes opened:
Genesis 3:2-4: And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
Consequences of Eating the Forbidden Fruit
Upon eating the fruit, what happened? Did they both drop dead? No, the Bible is quite explicit that what happened was exactly what the snake said would happen: their eyes were opened.
Genesis 3:6-7: And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat. And the eyes of them both were opened, and they knew that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves together, and made themselves aprons.
God Reacts to Humans Knowing the Truth
After discovering that Adam and Eve ate from a tree which God placed right in the middle of the Garden of Eden and made pleasing to the eye, God decided to punish everyone involved — including the snake:
Creation is redone! By The Essence of The Creator in the flesh. God faced a challenge placed to eons ago:
“Man You created stepped away from Your Word. Now, it has been placed under me. IF You came to my domain, You will fall.”
It at times is difficult to understand God as Three:
In His Essence, God The Word came to Earth. Yes, He was challenged for 40 days (unbelievably this is the same period that Moses and Elijah fasted for.)
Moses and Elijah appeared with Jesus on the mountain. The only recorded individuals in His-story not to have passed. Yes, it is written that God ‘buried Moses.’
God Himself buried Moses, with no grave and no monument that the Israelites could use to create another idol for worship.
“So Moses, the Eternal’s servant, died there in the land of Moab, just as the Eternal had said. He buried him in a valley in the land of Moab, opposite Beth-peor, but to this day no one knows where his grave is. Moses was 120 years old when he died, but his eyesight hadn’t failed and his strength hadn’t diminished.”
I will point out that ALL is possible with God!
With God All Things Are Possible
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”
When His disciples heard it, they were greatly astonished, saying, “Who then can be saved?”
But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Then Peter answered and said to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You. Therefore what shall we have?”
So Jesus said to them, “Assuredly I say to you, that in the regeneration, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of His glory, you who have followed Me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My name’s sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.
Matthew 19:23-30 (NKJV)
We are re-born! We live a new life, Amen!
Yes! We still battle. Our battle is not physical, there are spiritual forces in high places.
We with the Essence of God within us are enemies to the enemy of God’s will,
Down the path we go….
In a world sense, greater than a google years ago (Long ago, mathematicians came up with an easy way of representing very large numbers. They created exponents (also called powers) to represent the mathematical function of multiplying a number by itself a certain number of times.
Let’s look at some examples. If you see 102, 10 is the base and the 2 is the exponent or power. 102 means 10 to the second power or 10 multiplied by itself twice. Thus, 102 is the same as 10 X 10 or 100.
Likewise, 103 is the same as 10 x 10 x 10, which equals 1,000. Do you see a pattern? When 10 is the base, the exponent will be the number of zeroes after the 1 in the answer. So, 106 would be a 1 with 6 zeroes, or 1,000,000 (1 million).
Exponents work with any base. For example, 42is the same as 4 x 4 (16) and 43 is the same as 4 x 4 x 4 (64).
How would 1 billion and 1 trillion be represented as exponents? One billion is 1 followed by 9 zeroes, or 109. One trillion is 1 followed by 12 zeroes, or 1012.
Believe it or not, mathematicians use numbers much bigger than 1 trillion. In 1938, a 9-year-old boy named Milton Sirotta, who was the nephew of American mathematician Edward Kasner, invented a new number that he called a googol. According to Milton, a googol is 10100, or 1 followed by 100 zeroes!
How big is a googol? Really, really big! Mathematicians believe a googol is bigger than the number of subatomic particles in the universe. Despite its size, a googol is still smaller than the total number of possible different games of chess (approximately 10120))
A challenge was placed to God.
“If You were in my kingdom; You would fall. Man You have created to be as You – Infallible, perfect in every way. Man is not so.”
Knowing full well that He would stand to the challenge, The Word with Whom there is NO impossibility sent Jesus – a part of Himself!
The gospel of John, which presents Jesus Christ in His deity, is sometimes called the “I AM” book. Over and over again in the book of John, Jesus said, “I AM.” To the learned Jew this phrase “I AM” was very significant. It was a claim by Jesus that He is God. Why? In the Old Testament when God called Moses to lead the nation of Israel out of Egypt, He told Moses to tell the nation that “I AM” has sent you (Exodus 3:13-15). “I AM” is the covenant God of Israel, Jehovah! Therefore, the great “I AM” is the designation for God to the nation of Israel and Jesus’ statement “I AM” is a clear indication that He was saying, “I AM God.”
Did Jesus say He was God? Jesus claimed equality with the God the Father. “Jesus said to them, ‘My Father is always at his work to this very day, and I, too, am working.’ For this reason the Jews tried all the harder to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God” (John 5:17-18).
“Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, ‘Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him, but I know him because I am from him and he sent me'” (John 7:28-29).
“Then they asked him, ‘Where is your father?’ ‘You do not know me or my Father,’ Jesus replied. ‘If you knew me, you would know my Father also'” (John 8:19) “‘I tell you the truth,’ Jesus answered, ‘before Abraham was born, I am!'” (John 8:58). “I and the Father are one” (John 10:30).
Therefore the Jews certainly understood that Jesus was claiming to be God and they sought to kill Him because of it. “‘What about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, “I am God’s Son”? Do not believe me unless I do what my Father does. But if I do it, even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father.’ Again they tried to seize him, but he escaped their grasp.” (John 10:36-39). This is just one incident where the Jewish authority sought to take Jesus or to stone Him and He escaped out of their hands because His time had not yet come (John 8:20).
