Word Time


In Hebrew a person put to death can mean more than meets the eye. Example in point? the story of a prodigal son (Luke 15: 11–32) who dies to his Father, is ‘dead’, until he returns!

Next time someone tries to tell you YHWH is a killer of people, remind them death can mean more than one thing!

Exodus 31:14

New King James Version (NKJV)

14 You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is ‘holy’ (qodesh: consecrated, dedicated, etc.) to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely ‘be put to death’ (shalah: be – remove(d), be – taken away, etc..); for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.”

Seek and you shall find, said YH’shua (YH, the Father, is salvation), our Hebrew Messiah.

Amein? Amein!

Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

Holy: 6944 qodesh ko’-desh from 6942; a sacred place or thing; rarely abstract, sanctity:–consecrated (thing), dedicated (thing), hallowed (thing), holiness, (X most) holy (X day, portion, thing), saint, sanctuary.

Death: 7953 shalah shaw-law’ a primitive root (rather cognate (by contraction) to the base of 5394, 7997 and their congeners through the idea of extracting); to draw out or off, i.e. remove (the soul [one’s walk] by death):take away.
