There is so much here it truly blows my mind, in a search on intimacy this week I revisited the Hebrew YADA, yes as in Yada, Yada, Yada… To know to know to know, well Adam knew Eve and you got Cain Able Seth and who knows who else. No doubt God has huge amounts to teach on this word but today lets just talk the last letter, the Ayin, It looks kinda like a “Y” for a good reason, it is the first letter in Yoke both in Hebrew and English.
Jesus taught Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Yes, Yoke starts with an Ayin but the next letter in Hebrew is a Lamed, my surmise of that since a lamed is your hearts longing, then: What your heart longs for you are Yoked to as in intimacy. A study of the word in the old testament you will find God is constantly breaking them and their BANDS also a significant word… We get ourselves yoked into so many slaveries, Jesus came to break those allowing us to be yoked to what our heart longed for originally and that Yoke is the only true Freedom… Look at the Ayins/Yokes in Joshua’s Famous “As for me and my house we will serve – Be Yoked to the Lord. “
The BANDS is another word Satan has stolen as we band together in sin. Meant to be a Band of Brothers, supporting each other toward God That is a Kingdom word in Hebrew, Starting with a Mem like King or Kingdom, then a Samech, that’s the support of equals, like those two OX yokes together up there. In the old testamend God is constantly breaking yokes and bands…SO THAT WE WILL TAKE ON THE ONES WE WERE Designed for…
GREAT NATION – SO what is a great nation? Gowy in Hebrew:
Genisis 12:2 “And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing:”
GOWY is an amazing word as well, my take on it is the Gimmel (first letter) is the rich man running (Vuv Connecting to God) to bring the Spark – Yud of God to the poor person. Think about How God did bless Abraham, his people brough both the Torah and Jesus Christ to the poor and blind and naked.
Let’s Make America Great AGAIN… lets all be yoked and banned together to bring the gospel to the nations… Simple but opposed.
