The Word Hebrew (Ivrit) Means “To Cross Over”

abraham-journey

Abram Crosses Over to An Unseen Promised Land

The Lord (YHVH) said to Abram,

“Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.

I will make you into a great nation, and I will bless you;

I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.

I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse;

and All peoples on earth will be blessed through you.” Genesis 12:1-3

In your Seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed, because you have obeyed My voice.”  Genesis 22:18

Abram Was Hebrew and All His Descendants Are Hebrew

Then a fugitive came and told Abram the Hebrew. Now he was living by the oaks of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol and brother of Aner, and these were allies with Abram.” Genesis 14:13

 

*All includes Ismael and the six children he had with his second wife Keturah.  

Name Changing Covenants

Abram and his wife Sari had an AH added to their names.   They became, Abraham and Sarah.

“No longer shall your name be called Abram, But your name shall be Abraham; For I will make you the father of a multitude of nations.” Genesis 17:5

“Then God said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her name Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.” Genesis 17:15

The next name change was Y’aacob or Jacob, (Ya’acob), Abraham’s grandson.  His name is changed to Israel when he is blessed with the same Covenant of his grandfather Abraham and his father Isaac.

God said to him, “Your name is Jacob; You shall no longer be called Jacob, But Israel shall be your name.” Thus He called him Israel. Genesis 35:10

Jacob’s Name Change is The Origin of Israel

“I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven, and will give your descendants all these lands; and by your descendants All the Nations of the earth shall be blessedGenesis 26:4

The Meaning of Israel is Given

“Your name shall no longer be Jacob, but Israel; for you have striven with God and with men and have prevailed.” Genesis 32:28

Israel had Twelve Son’s Called The Twelve Tribes of Israel

‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah, for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of My people Israel.’”  Matthew 2:6Micah 5:2

 The Promised Seed Will Come Through The Tribe of Judah (The Jews)

I will establish your seed forever And build up your throne to all generations.” Selah.” Psalm 89:4

The Promised Seed Will Be A Descendant of David The Son of Jesse

“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to give you this testimony for the Assemblies. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16Isaiah 11:1Acts 13:23

All The Nations of The Earth Are Blessed Through One Seed

“The promises were spoken to Abraham and to his seed. The Scripture does not say, “and to seeds,” meaning many, but “and to your seed,” meaning One, who is Messiah.”  Galatians 3:16

Y’suha, The First and The Last, The Promised Seed From The Beginning

And I will put enmity Between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed; He (The promised Seed) shall bruise you on the head, And you shall bruise him on the heel.” Genesis 3:15

The Hebrew idiom, “He shall bruise you on the head,”  means He will have victory (prevail) over His adversary the serpent (satan).

These are the words of the First and the Last, who died and returned to life.” Revelation 2:8; Revelation 1:17Revelation 22:13Isaiah 48:12Isaiah 44:6

Our Hebrew Messiah crossed over from Death to Life.

To the one who is victorious, I will grant the right to eat of the tree of life in the paradise of God. Revelation 2:7

We Are All Called to Cross Over From Death to Life

A Kingdom where The One and Only Life Giver rules and there is no division; no Jewish or non-Jewish religious divisions, not even between male or female, slave or free, because we are All One in His Spirit.

There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are All One in (Christ Jesus) Messiah Y’shua,” Galatians 3:28

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and in his joy he went and sold all he had and bought that field.  Matthew 13:44

The Word Treasure Has Several Hebrew Meanings

  1.  Otzar #214 from Atzar #686 a stored up treasure.
  2. Genaz #1596 from Genez #1595 a treasury.
  3. Segullah #5459, a treasured possession.
  4. Matmon #4301, a hidden treasure.  They are all so close but in this parable we are told the Kingdom of Heaven is like treasure.  According to these four Hebrew words it seems the treasure is stored or hidden, like an unseen possession in the field.

What is The field?

The field is explained earlier, in The Parable of the Wheat and the Weeds, as meaning the earth, land or world, the Hebrew word Eretz #776.

The field is the world,” Matthew 13:38

Also keeping in mind the explanation of soil or ground represents the heart in The Parable of the Sower.

When anyone hears the message of the kingdom but does not understand it, the evil one comes and snatches away what was sown in his heart. This is the seed sown along the path.”  Matthew 13:19

Who is the man?

In the Parable of the Sower, the man, sowing good seed is the Son of Adam, a phrase referring to Y’shua (Jesus).  Matthew 26:24Matthew 24:30

He replied,“The One who sows the good seed is the Son of Man (Adam).” Matthew 13:37

At first glance the man in the field resembles Y’shua in the Parable of The Sower until we remember He is not the one instructed to search for His Kingdom, we are;

“But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be added unto you. Matthew 6:33

Purchase, Buy, Acquire The Lasting Treasure With All You Have

In this next verse Y’shua instructs “a man” to sell everything and give to the poor in order to acquire treasure in (The Kingdom) heaven.

On hearing this, Jesus told him, “You still lack one thing: Sell everything you own and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow Me.” Luke 18:22

Interestingly, we are instructed to seek both YHVH’s (He Exists) Unseen Spirit and His Unseen Kingdom, with a promise it will be found by those who seek,  Deuteronomy 4:29 ; Jeremiah 29:13Matthew 7:7.
The Description of His Spirit is Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Strength, Knowledge, Truth, and Reverence of YHVH.

The Spirit of YHVH is His Treasure

The Spirit of YHVH will rest on Him, (Y’shua) The spirit of Wisdom and Understanding, The spirit of Counsel and Strength, The spirit of Knowledge and the Fear of YHVH.”  Isaiah 11:2

“The faithfulness, trust, belief, steadfastness, (emuhah #530) of your times will be a wealth/riches, (chosen #2633) of Salvation, (Yeshua #3444) Wisdom, (Chokmah #2451) and Knowledge, (Daath #1847); The Fear, (Yirah #3374) of YHVH is His Treasure, (Otzar #214).”  Isaiah 33:6

We Are To Seek and Acquire His Spirit of Wisdom

If you seek her (Wisdom) as silver And search for her as for hidden treasures;” Proverbs 2:4

“Acquire (Get/buy) Wisdom! Acquire Understanding! Do not forget nor turn away from the words of my mouth, (Torah)” Proverbs 4:5

“The beginning of Wisdom is: Acquire (get/buy) Wisdom; And with all your acquiring, get Understanding.” Proverbs 4:7

“Buy Truth, and do not sell it, Get Wisdom and Instruction and Understanding.” Proverbs 23:23

How much better is it to get/buy Wisdom than gold! and to get Understanding …”  Proverbs 16:16 

With this knowledge of YHVH’s original Word we can see that we are the man.  The treasure is hidden/unseen, like the description His Spirit.  The Kingdom of Heaven is in this world and in our hearts, it is in our midst but not observable because it is not physical, Luke 17:20; Luke 17:21John 18:36.

When we find the wealth/riches/treasure of Life in His Spirit, we will joyfully sell all that we have in this temporary life to gain Lasting Life in His Kingdom.
