Education & True Word of Yah: The Meaning of Life.
The question of the universe has always been: What is the Meaning of Life? Well I am going to answer that for you today.
Etymology of Life:
Old English life (dative lif) "animated corporeal existence; lifetime, period between birth and death; the history of an individual from birth to death, written account of a person's life; way of life (good or bad); condition of being a living thing, opposite of death; spiritual existence imparted by God, through Christ, to the believer," from Proto-Germanic *libam (source also of Old Norse lif "life, body," Old Frisian, Old Saxon lif "life, person, body," Dutch lijf "body," Old High German lib "life," German Leib"body"), properly "continuance, perseverance," from PIE root *leip- "to stick, adhere."
Definition of Animated
a : endowed with life or the qualities of life : alive animated creatures
b : full of movement and activity an animated crowd
c : full of vigor and spirit : lively an animated discussion
2: having the appearance of something alive an unusually animated piece of sculpture
3: made in the form of an animated cartoon an animated film
Definition of Corporeal
1: having, consisting of, or relating to a physical material body: such as
a : not spiritual
… some few traces of a diviner nature which look out through his corporeal baseness …
b : not immaterial or intangible : substantial
So as we see here life is defined as being animated and without a Spirit.
So Technically we are Dead!! And I can prove this...
In Hebrew and Greek the word Life means something else. Understanding the meaning of Life will help you see Scripture as it is meant to be seen; With the Life of Yahuah in it.
Hebrew word for Life:
Chai= THE WORD OF ELOHIYM
The verbal root of chay is chayah. Chayah is generally translated as living or quickened. As we have done with other terms, let's see how the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) uses this term. The first occurrence, as it relates to humans, is in Bere’shiyt (Genesis):
Bere’shiyt 2:7And YHVH ’Elohiym formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life [chai]; and man became a living soul.
Now read Genesis 2:7 like this: YHVH ( The Lord God) Elohiym formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostriles the breath of The Word of Elohiym; and man became a living soul.
(Without The Word of Elohiym, we are dead. That is what happened to Adam, he died when The Word of Elohiym left him due to his disobediance.)
Man's life came from the breath of ’Elohiym. What is the breath of ’Elohiym? It is the word of ’Elohiym (Mizemor (Psalm) 33:6, Yochanan (John) 6:63). Right from the beginning we see that our life comes from the Spirit of YHVH, the breath of YHVH, the Words of YHVH. Let's get some more detail.
Devariym (Deuteronomy) 32:46 - 47And he said unto them, Set your hearts unto all the words which I testify among you this day, which ye shall command your children to observe to do, all the words of this law. For it is not a vain thing for you; because it is your life: and through this thing ye shall prolong your days in the land, wither ye go over Jordan to possess it.
Mizemor 119:50This is my comfort in my affliction: for thy words hath given me life.
Mishlei 3:1-2My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: for length of days and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee.
Mizemor 119:24-32Thy testimonies also are my delight and my counselors. My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to your word. I have declared my ways, and thou heardest me; teach me thy statutes. Make me to understand the way of thy precepts; so shall I talk of thy wondrous works. My soul melteth for heaviness; strengthen thou me according to thy word... Remove from me the way of lying, and grant me thy law graciously. I have chosen the way of truth; thine ordinances have I laid before me. I have clung to thy testimonies; O YHVH, put me not to shame. I will run the way of thy commandments, when thou shalt enlarge my heart.
Here we have seen that life is the laws, precepts, ordinances, statutes, words, and teaching of YHVH. It is YHVH Himself. It is not some lofty, ambiguous term left open to be spiritualized away into some meaningless chasm. When Yeshua‘, who is ’Elohiym, uses these words, He is using them in the same way He has always used them. This is precisely what was to be looked for in discerning the coming Mashiach. If He did not speak according to the law and the testimony, then there was no light (Torah) in Him (Yesha’yahu (Isaiah) 8:20). So now let's look at some ways in which Yeshua‘ used this term. Remember, the term life is the Word of ’Elohiym.
Yochanan (John) 6:63 It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit and they are life.
Yochanan 1:4 In him was life and the life was the light of men. ( Or: In him was The Word of Elohiym and The Word of Elohiym was the light of men.)
Yochanan 5:24 Verily, verily, I say to you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on Him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death to
The Greek word for Life
zoe= The Word of Elohiym
of the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God, and through him both to the hypostatic "logos" and to Christ in whom the "logos" put on human nature
Logos: Noun means- the Word of God, or principle of divine reason and creative order, identified in the Gospel of John
Ma’asey hashsheliyechiym (Acts) 2:28 Thou hast made know to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
Yochannan 14:6 I am the Way, the Truth, and the life, no man comes to the Father, but by me.
(I am the Way, The Truth and The Word of Elohiym: no man comes to the Father, but by me)
It is very important to know what Life you are Living. I pray that you are Living According to The Word of Elohiym. Otherwise, you are just being an animated vessle without a spirit.
Ensure you know where you Soul is going.
When we are Living according To the Word of Elohiym : Elohiym Lives on Earth through us. This is why we are told to Be a Light unto All the nations. By living according to The Word of Elohiym we spread life to others.
