#2 Comment on John 14:9
(John 14:8,9), Philip said unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it will satisfy us.
Jesus said unto him, Have I been so long a time with you, and yet have you not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father; and how say you then, Show us the Father?

CHRIST, THE LIVING WORD OF GOD THE FATHER. (John 1:1)
YAHOSHUA (THE SON OF GOD) is The Very Word of GOD THE FATHER.

He resides in THE BOSOM or HEART OF THE GOD THE FATHER,
(John 1:18) No man hath seen THE FATHER at any time; the only BEGOTTEN SON (The VERY WORD OF THE FATHER), which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

As words SPOKEN from the heart of an Auto Biographer and you read his words which are word pictures. You then begin to see the picture of the auto biographer who is the source from which the words have proceeded from, (the words are mental pictures)

(John 8:42), Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, you would love me: for I AM THE LIVING WORD that was Spoken forth and came out from MY FATHER; neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

In other words, have you understood my Auto Biographical Words from My Heart to see who I AM ?

(Matthew 16:13), When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?

(Isaiah 55:11), So shall (MY WORD be that goes 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 for which I sent it.

(John 14:8,9), Philip said unto him, Lord, show us the Father, and it will satisfy us.

Jesus said unto him, Have I been so long a time with you, and yet have you not known me, Philip? He that has seen me has seen the Father; and how say you then, Show us the Father?

(John 1:14), And THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

CHRIST, THE LIVING WORD OF GOD THE FATHER. BELIEVE INTO HIM FOR WHO HE IS AND WHAT HE HAS DONE FOR YOUR SALVATION.

(John 5:23) That all men should (honor the Son,) (even as they honor the Father). He that honors not the Son honors not the Father who has sent him. Amen ! ! !

#3 Comment on John 4:18
You know, you make a good point, zcostilla. I digress.

You know, come to think of it, Jesus was probably making a point about spiritual and physical marriage in this narrative.

She was used as an example by God of the adultery and the marriage of the Northern lands to five husbands, and they did not know God living in sin in a defacto relationship in Samaria. The woman at the well is a powerful allegory and also a lesson on marriage.

Which brings us to your point:

Regarding her personal life, this sequence appears to show firstly, the woman had been married five times under the law and each one was recognized as a legitimate marriage by Messiah. She was currently living with a man but that arrangement was not recognized to be a marriage by Messiah. Thus Messiah produced doctrine in this way. He recognized multiple marriages as there is no indication that this woman had been widowed five times. Indeed the law allows remarriage as we see above. Secondly, Christ ruled here on de facto marriage, pronouncing it as no legitimate marriage.

Just some more thoughts on your very good observation :)

#5 Comment on Leviticus 21:7
Christian men must marry a virgin woman according to law of God.

Acoording to the Holy Scriptures christian men must marry a virgin woman; For it is written in Revelation 1:6 " And Jesus Christ has made us kings and priests unto God and His Father;..." and also in 1 Peter 2:9 " But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation,.."; So all the christians on earth are priests of God;
And it is written in Leviticus 21:7 " The priests shall not take a wife that is a whore, or deflowered, neither shall they take a woman put away from her husband; for he is holy unto his God" and also in Ezekiel 44:22 " The priests shall not take for theirs wives a widow, nor her that is put away; but they shall take virgins of the seed of Israel, or a widow that had a priest before"
So christian men, who are priests must marry a virgin woman or a widow of a christian who was married being a virgin.

You may argue that we are no longer under the Mosaic Law, but this a big mistake;

for Jesus Christ says in Matthew 5:17-19 " Think not that I am come to abolish the Law and the Prophets; I am not come to abolish, but to fulfil. For verily I say to you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven, but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven."

So Jesus Christ cannot abolish any law which is not already predicted in the Law and the Prophets, according to His own word in Matthew 5:17-19; thus Jesus Christ has made 7 reforms ( 7 is number of perfection) to bring the Law to perfection.
The 7 reforms made by Jesus Christ are already predicted in the Law and the Prophets; so He fulfilled the Law and the Prophets by doing these reforms.

These reforms are:
1- reform related to the law of divorce,
2- reform related to the law of death penalty,
3- reform related to the law of vengeance; eye for eye, tooth for tooth,
4- reform related to the law of Aaronic priesthood; the high priest,
5- reform related to the law of Leviticus priesthood; the priests,
6- reform related to the law of of earthly tabernacle and the sacrifices of sin expiation,
7- and last, you must be baptized by Holy Spirit before being partaker of the kingdom of heaven

So if you don't understand what apostle Paul has written, keep what Jesus says.

Shalom, God bless you while you are keeping His word.

#8 Comment on Genesis 9:18
Matthew Henry Commentary
II. Noah's sin and shame: He planted a vineyard....
III. Ham's impudence and impiety: He saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren, Genesis 9:22. To see it accidentally and involuntarily would not have been a crime; but, 1. He pleased himself with the sight...
IV. The pious care of Shem and Japheth to cover their poor father's shame...
1. He pronounces a curse on Canaan the son of Ham (Genesis 9:25).... [MHC]
Inspired Commentary
Most commentaries have similar content deciphering this portion of Torah. I am not stating that I am smarter or even correct in my assumptions but the commentaries on this passage have left me a bit confused on this biblical account. Instead of reiterating what others say, I wish to establish what I see as a possible analysis of this portion of the Torah.
Let's open at the beginning of this version and define the scripture to its entirety as given to us by Moses. First, [to be] an husbandman #0376 iysh {eesh}N M; man, mortal man, person, mankind and #0127 ' adamah {ad-aw-maw'}N F; ground or land. At first glance, one would make out that Noach was a man of the ground, a farmer per say. Now, bear with me as I attempt to examine this as what see as Jewish metaphorical imagery. We know that Noach is the main subject of this phrase because everything in this sentence points back to him. Then we discover that he is the man of the land, or is there another perspective to what may be suggested? I agree that (iysh) is a word for man or husband but the word used here is a form of iysh #0582וֹ ' enowsh {en-oshe'} which is properly a mortal, hence a man in general (singly or collectively). It becomes discernible that the terminology is suggestive that there is more than one man or a people, if you will allow me some leniency. Then he planted, #5193 nata` {naw-tah'} Verb - Qal Imperfect; to plant, fasten, fix, establish a #3754 kerem {keh'-rem} a garden or vineyard. Planted here would give the impression of an establishment of something and one would only need to read verse 18 to see what Noach initiated, any individual can distinguish that it was by means of his sons that he founded a lineage of future peoples. Then, vineyard throughout the scriptures, is a symbol for the people of God; so, why should this be any different in this narrative. Thereby, a people of God will come from his lineage. Then in verse 21, and he drank, #8354 shathah {shaw-thaw'} Verb - Qal Imperfect; to drink, of drinking the cup of God's wrath, of slaughter, of wicked deeds; of the wine, #3196 yayin {yah'-yin}. In Hebrew, the word is yayin, denoting fermentation is a Symbol of Sin especially in wine where leaven or yeast, is used to make the wine ferment. And was drunken, evokes #7937 shakar {shaw-kar'} Verb - Qal Imperfect; to be or become drunk or drunken, be intoxicated, and he was uncovered, indicates #1540 galah {gaw-law'} to be disgracefully exposed. The symbols of intoxication and nakedness are usually found in scripture for those who indulge in Sin and then having it publically exposed, respectively. Do you see where Im going here? If this were a sin of Noachs, then where is Gods retort to the sin of this once obedient Servant, who behaved in such a reprehensible manner. Gods silence at this juncture is probably due to this storyline being written in Jewish prose and all the events are in metaphorical symbology. And now, to finish this verse, where is Noach during the events that happened in this prophetic discourse. It states that he was within his tent, #8432 tavek {taw'-vek} N M; meaning to sever; a bisection, that is, (by implication) the centre: among (-st), X (there-, where-) in (-to), middle, mid [-night], midst (among), and #0168 ' ohel {o'-hel} N M; nomad's tent, and thus symbolic of wilderness life, transience, dwelling, home, habitation; which concludes for me that Noach in this account is meant as pertaining to a nomadic people that dwell in a wilderness area so as to call it home, much like Abram and his lineage. See Genesis 9:22 for the rest.

#9 Comment on Luke 9:51
This verse has been misinterpreted down through the years. It is not alluding to our Lords Ascension, but of His 'going up' to Jerusalem to the Feast of Tabernacles. Why would His Ascension be in question this early when it is at least six months hence?. It makes no sense. The odd choice of words here...analempsis...would be better translated as His 'retirement'. The word before it, sumpleroo, means to be completed or accomplished. So, this is not speaking of His Ascension then. It means the time was come that Jesus must no longer retire from Judea and the area around Jerusalem. He had been staying around the Galilee to avoid the Jews' laying hold of Him before His ministry was ended, and full proof of His divine mission given, and some of the prophecies concerning Him accomplished. In those days, one 'went up' to Jerusalem to the feasts. Three that were required to attend in Jerusalem were Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacles. Here, Jesus is setting His sights on Jerusalem to 'go up' to the Feast of Tabernacles. The Hebrew reads, 'aliyah' meaning 'to go up'. So, this passage has nothing to do with His 'going up to Heaven', but 'going up' to Jerusalem...because He has to despite the Pharisees and 'Jews' that want to lay hold of Him.

#10 Comment on Song of Songs 1:4
Thank you Frank Pytel, your comment makes a lot of sense. If the Holy Spirit leads you to post more about spiritual elevation, please do so. I am studying Song of Solomon and I would like to learn more as I am curious about how Song of Solomon chapter 2 relates to the harpazo or the rapture mentioned in 1 Thessalonians 4:15-18. Is the dove of Song of Solomon 6:9 the same as the Daughter of the King of Psalm 45:13? I would like to hear your feed back on this. Shalom.

#11 Comment on Song of Songs 3:7
In Song of Songs 3:7, the bed, or resting place of King Solomon, stands in most striking contrast to the bed of carnal sloth and ease, spoken of by the Bride in verse 1 - the one, a place of idle security; the other of active service. Adelaide Leaper Newton, The Song of Solomon

#12 Comment on Genesis 9:22
Genesis 9:22-23
and he saw #7200 ra'ah {raw-aw'}; Verb - Qal; to see, look at, inspect, perceive, consider
Ham #2526 Cham {khawm}; Noun; Ham = "hot"
the father; #0001 'ab {avb}; Noun - Masculine; father of an individual, of God as father of his people, head or founder of a household, group, family, or clan, ancestor. However, here the noun is used in the 1 person common singular and it could be masc. or fem. So if this was directed at Noach why use (avi) instead of father the masculine (av)? I suggest that this is the case because Kena`an {ken-ah'-an} is in reference to a nation, people or country and wasnt meant as a blemish on Ham pertaining to His 4th son. So, what we possibly see here is a prophetic passage concerning the line of Ham. If it were meant for Kena`an, He would have been the one to look upon this metaphoric drunken state of his grandfather. But the passage tells us that his father Cham looked and is suggested that he despised his fathers nudity. Then, when Noach awoke he knew what the youngest son had done. How could Noach have known when he was in an unconscious drunken condition? Only by divine inspiration could he have known of the act and then give his prophetic message of Kena`ans enslavement by his older brothers. This proposed rendition of the deeds that ensued is unlikely not found in what most commentaries will suggest. Most will conclude that Kena`an is the one who viewed Noachs condition but when we look at the account, it distinctively conveys otherwise. Cham, the youngest son has the bad character in this story not Kena`an. However, this isnt Kena`an the villain man but Kena`an the nation, land or peoples of his ancestry.
#3667 Kena`an {ken-ah'-an}; Canaan = "lowland"

#13 Comment on Genesis 9:23
אָבִיו of his father; #0001 אָב 'ab {avb}; Noun -Masculine; father of an individual, of God as father of his people, head or founder of a household, group, family, or clan, ancestor. See Genesis 9:23 for the conclusion.
אֲחֹרַנִּית backward #0322אֲחֹרַנִּית ' achoranniyth {akh-o-ran-neeth'}adverb; backwards, back part, the rear.
Now observe what happens when these Hebrew words are morphed to their roots.
#0299אֲחִירַע ' Achiyra` {akh-ee-rah'} Noun -Masculine; Ahira = "my brother is evil", a chief of Naphtali.
Then from here it branches into two dissimilar paths.
1) #0251אָח ' ach {awkh}; Noun -Masculine; brother of same parents. #0001 אָב 'ab {avb}; Noun -Masculine; father of an individual, of God as father of his people, head or founder of a household, group, family, or clan, ancestor;
2) and #7451רָע ra` {rah} adjective; bad or evil, #748 רָעַע ra`a` {raw-ah' } verb; to be bad, to be evil.
Before continuing the morphology of the words is there some tradition for walking backwards in Jewish culture? The answer would be yes. One walks seven circles during a kiddushin (marriage) ceremony in the process of binding yourselves to each other. In the disseverment of a marriage each chants the seven lines of the same prayer and unbinds oneself by tracing the seven circles in reverse as you walk away from the union. Lamentations 1:8 Jerusalem has grievously sinned; therefore she is removed: all that honored her despise her, because they have seen her nakedness: yes, she sighs, and turns backward. Walking backward from or to someone is perceived as the breaking of a promise, pact or covenant in Jewish custom. Here walking backward appears to show reverence to their father because to expose ones nakedness was to disgrace or degrade oneself.
With all this walking backward, what can we grasp from this text? Assuming that all the text of this passage are metaphorical imagery. The ancestry of the peoples of hm שֵׁם and Yefet יֶפֶת; will conceal the shame of חָם Chams lineage through נֹחַ Noach in unspecified methods.
#8071 שִׂמְלָה garment simlah {sim-law'} noun feminine; perhaps used as an alternative for the masculine of #5566 סֶמֶל cemel {seh'-mel} Noun - Masculine (through the idea of a cover assuming the shape of the object beneath), image, statue, idol. And again, we have a feminine component in grammar, which by all rights may indicate the covering of the sins of a nation, people or land that possibly would be specifically for that of idol worship and practice.
Is this record of נֹחַ Noach differing substantially from what you were all led to accept as fact, in most commentaries and or narratives, translations, or studies of the scriptures. From my limited understanding of the workings of God, I can distinguish a minuscule glimpse toward understanding this portion of Gods word and that of his servants of distinction. For the record, I am not stating that past historical scholars have misinterpreted this portion of the Torah but that there may be other hidden meanings that they may not have perceived. I know they were probably under a tremendous burden to interpret all of the Torah. Again, I am not passing judgment on past commentaries or objecting to past historical works but just throwing in my 2 cents worth in better understanding Gods word. God can even inspire the least in the kingdom of God to bring to light the meaning for His Word, no matter how far this prevalent idea may appear.

#15 Comment on Song of Songs 3:11
Song of Songs 3:11 speaks of the gladness of the Beloved Christ. Although we often consider our joy and satisfaction, we need to come a point in our love life with Him that we are more concerned about His pleasure than our own. Our goal and our ambition should only be to please Him (2 Cor. 5:9)!

#17 Comment on 1 Corinthians 3:10
According to the grace of God which is given unto me (Paul The Apostle of Christ), as a wise masterbuilder, (I have laid The Foundation), and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.

1Co3:11 (None other Foundation) can be laid by no other man. So take heed how one builds thereupon. (previous verse). Fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is.

IN (John 6:28). The people asked the question about works. What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Christ's reply, "Jesus answered and said unto them,
( This is THE WORK of GOD THE FATHER), that you (BELIEVE on HIM WHOM HE HAS SENT.) (John 6:29)

Greek Text uses The Definite Article (HO) to emphasize (THE WORK OF GOD), VERY IMPORTANT.

CHRIST asked the Question of Questions "whom do men say, I THE SON OF MAN AM?", referring to Matthew 16:13. See also Gospel of John 1:1

Going back to Paul's Statement in 1st Corinthians 3:11, (The Foundation) which no other man can lay (is CHRIST JESUS (YAH-O-SHUA). Take heed how you build upon.

Aposltle Paul's statement concerning (The Foundation) He has Laid, See Phillipians 3:8.
I count all things but loss for (the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord). AMEN !

Do you know, (The Excellency of Knowing Christ)

Religions of the world have built upon Foundations (Other Than) what The Apostle Paul Has Laid. BEWARE ! !

#18 Comment on Song of Songs 4:3
The phrase within your locks is used two times in the appreciation of the Beloved Christ concerning His lovers eyes and temples (S. of S. 4:1, 3). The Septuagint translation of the phrase "within your locks" is in silence. This emphasizes not only the matter of not being a public display, but to be quiet before Him and with Him. In such quietness with our lovely Beloved Christ, all our natural energy and selfish activity is put away. In this stillness we know He is God and see the salvation of our God at work (Isa. 46:10; Exo. 14:13).

#19 Comment on Song of Songs 4:4
There are two aspects of the shields which are hung upon the neck of the lover of Christ (S. of S. 4:4):
1) God is a shield, the shield is a Person (Gen. 15:1; Psa. 3:3)
2) The lover of Christ apprehends the shield by faith, or her faith in union with God is the shield (Eph. 6:16)
Faith comes by hearing the Word of Christ (Rom. 10:8, 17), which brings God into our experience as our shield. Our constant union and fellowship with the divine Beloved Christ through His living word and our living faith become many experiential shields which are displayed upon the renewed and transformed neck (will) of His lover bride. This is a bridal characteristic appreciated by our loving Bridegroom Christ!

The lover/bride rises up to ascend the mountain and hill to gather more of the fragrant spices of her Beloved Christ found in holy elevations. It is here she is free from other influences. Beloved Christ, I want to walk the elevated life in the Spirit more completely that I would not fulfill the low cravings of my fallen nature (Gal. 5:16).

When the Beloved Christ addresses his lover/bride as My love, he sees her as a person who is filled with his love. He is the source of her love and supplies her with his love, ever pouring out his love into her heart (Rom. 5:5)! Through many experiences of union and fellowship with the Beloved Christ, she is constituted with Him as love and His love has become her person. He tells her, you are my love.

In Song of Songs 4:8, after the bride ascends the top of the truth, Amana, and the top of the armor of light, Shenir, she proceeds to the place called Hermon. This peak in her experience is the place of destruction due to triumph, for Hermon means devoted to destruction after triumph. It is here that she knows her Beloved as the One who destroyed every enemy and is exalted in the triumph of victory! Lord, may we know you in the ascended life!

#25 Comment on Romans 1:30
It is interesting to note that the book of Romans is addressed in verse 7, "To all in Rome who are loved by God and called to be his holy people." This indicates that he is addressing adults as well as children, but primarily adults. So when Paul ends the list of despicable traits displayed by "those who suppress the truth" (v. 18), with "disobedient to parents," (v.30) he is addressing a mostly adult audience. Therefore it is not just for children under 18 years of age to obey, in some translations "yield to" and "respect," their parents. It is for everyone at every age to obey, yield to and respect their parents. This is supported in the teaching of Jesus in Mark 7:9-13. Maybe it is even more important for adults to honor their parents, than children. Children are by nature imitators. Food for thought: if you want your children to honor you as a parent, do they have a good example to follow by watching you honor your parents?

#31 Comment on Zechariah 14:2
Zechariah 8The Restoration of JerusalemI lifted up my eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand. 2Then said I, Where go you? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof. Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle therein: 5For I, said the LORD, will be to her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the middle of her.Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, see, I come, and I will dwell in the middle of you, said the LORD. 11And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the middle of you, and you shall know that the LORD of hosts has sent me to you. 12And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.kind david ruling at jersalem book 2 samual God tells david isreal going to another land.Moreover I will appoint a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, that they may dwell in a place of their own, and move no more; neither shall the children of wickedness afflict them any more, as beforetime.Prophecy against Gog. there coming my people.After many days you shall be visited: in the latter years you shall come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely all of them. 9You shall ascend and come like a storm, you shall be like a cloud to cover the land, you, and all your bands, and many people with you.And you shall say, I will go up to the land of unwalled villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates, 12To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn your hand on the desolate places that are now inhabited, and on the people that are gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in the middle of the land.And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, said the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. gog is in your goverment civil war is coming. I will bring you against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in you, O Gog, before their eyes.heathen is the godless in the usa.For Tophet is ordained of old; yes, for the king it is prepared; he has made it deep and large: the pile thereof is fire and much wood; the breath of the LORD, like a stream of brimstone, does kindle it.in the day of the great slaughter, when the towers fall. 8Now go, write it before them in a table, and note it in a book, that it may be for the time to come for ever and ever:

9That this is a rebellious people, lying children, children that will not hear the law of the LORD:

10Which say to the seers, See not; and to the prophets, Prophesy not to us right things, speak to us smooth things, prophesy deceits:

11Get you out of the way, turn aside out of the path, cause the Holy One of Israel to cease from before us.Why thus said the Holy One of Israel, Because you despise this word, and trust in oppression and perverseness, and stay thereon:

13Therefore this iniquity shall be to you as a breach ready to fall, swelling out in a high wall, whose breaking comes suddenly at an instant.

14And he shall break it as the breaking of the potters' vessel that is broken in pieces; he shall not spare: so that there shall not be found in the bursting of it a shard to take fire from the hearth, or to take water with out of the pit.

#32 Comment on Genesis 18:3
The text is translated to "And said, Yahwe, if now I have found..."

But the hebraic word is "Adown". not "Yahwe".

#33 Comment on Colossians 1:15
First born means the primary of those born, not the initial. Those born does not mean those created. She who is born carries with her essence of the one who bears her. He being created is made out of ingredients and the substance is there but not the essence. Khavvah was first named ishah because she came out of ish. The man is named red clay.

Before that was the Son. He is hayah as light (John 1) by YHWH who is hayahed all by self.

These are the first things we are told in the book that is not biology or physics but does not confuse biology and physics.

Who has seen the One born has seen the One bearing. Look at the primary One, then, later, you can see "the image" in the lesser born.
