Word Time

Luke 1:15-17

“For he will be great in the sight of the ‘Lord’ [YHWH: Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym] and ‘will never drink wine or beer‘ [a component of the Nazarite vow]. He will be filled with the ‘Holy Spirit’ [Ruwach ha-Kodesh: Consecrated or Dedicated Expression, etc..] while still ‘in his mother’s womb’ [inside the faithful Elizabeth, wife of the priest ZechariYH].16 He will turn many of the sons of Israel to the ‘Lord’ [YHWH: Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym] their ‘God’ [‘Elohiym: Magistrates, Great, Angels, etc..].
17 And he will go before ‘Him’ [ha-I’ysh: the-Steward, The-Worthy, etc..]
in the ‘spirit’ [ruwach: expression, breath, etc..] and power of Elijah,
to turn the hearts of fathers
to their children,
and the disobedient
to the understanding of the righteous,
to make ready for the ‘Lord’ [YHWH: Name, Word and Works, of Israel’s ‘Elohiym] a prepared people.”

And so it is that John the Nazarite eventually prepares the way for YH’shua – the Nazarite? Often confused or mistranslated for a city called Nazareth, our Messiah’s 3.5 year ministry dovetailing perfectly with the Biblical, and John’s path, of the Nazarite vow.

And at its’ end? a path which proves salvation, a living example to each and every one of us, “the way, the truth, the life”.  May YH’s will be done…. in YH’shua’s expression.


Paraphrasing YH’shua, ” ‘Your’ [YHWH ‘Elohiym’s] ‘Will’ [Word and Works] be done ‘on earth’ (IN US) as it is in heaven”, AMEIN!

“YHWH (YH): “Modern scholars generally agree that YHWH is derived from the Hebrew triconsonantal root היה (h-y-h), “to be, become, come to pass”,[3] an archaic form of which is הוה (h-w-h),[4] with a third person masculine y- prefix, equivalent to English “he”. They connect it to [eg.] Exodus 3:14, [ETC..] where the divinity [‘Elohiym of Israel] who spoke with Moses responds to a question about his name by declaring: אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה (Ehyeh asher ehyeh), “I am that I am” or “I will be what I will be”[5](in Biblical Hebrew the form of the verb here is not associated with any particular English tense).[6][7][8]


Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

Nazarite (in context; someone that “will never drink wine or beer” and is, by choice, separated (a vow) to the Word and Works of Israel’s ‘Elohiym!):

    • 5144 nazar naw-zar’ a primitive root; to hold aloof, i.e. (intransitivey) abstain (from food and drink, from impurity, and even from divine worship (i.e. apostatize)); specifically, to set apart (to sacred purposes), i.e. devote:–consecrate, separate(-ing, self).

    • 5139 naziyr naw-zeer’ or nazir {naw-zeer’}; from 5144; separate, i.e. consecrated (as prince, a Nazirite); hence (figuratively from the latter) an unpruned vine (like an unshorn Nazirite):–Nazarite (by a false alliteration with Nazareth), separate(-d), vine undressed.

Holy Spirit:

  • 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.

  • Spirit: 7307 ruwach roo’-akh from 7306; wind; by resemblance breath, i.e. a sensible (or even violent) exhalation; figuratively, life, anger, unsubstantiality; by extension, a region of the sky; by resemblance spirit, but only of a rational being (including its expression and functions):–air, anger, blast, breath, X cool, courage, mind, X quarter, X side, spirit((-ual)), tempest, X vain, ((whirl-))wind(-y).

G-d: 430 ‘elohiym el-o-heem’ plural of 433; gods in the ordinary sense; but specifically used (in the plural thus, especially with the article) of the supreme God; occasionally applied by way of deference to magistrates; and sometimes as a superlative:–angels, X exceeding, God (gods)(-dess, -ly), X (very) great, judges, X mighty.

Him: 376 ‘iysh eesh contracted for 582 (or perhaps rather from an unused root meaning to be extant); a man as an individual or a male person; often used as an adjunct to a more definite term (and in such cases frequently not expressed in translation):–also, another, any (man), a certain, + champion, consent, each, every (one), fellow, (foot-, husband-)man, (good-, great, mighty) man, he, high (degree), him (that is), husband, man(-kind), + none, one, people, person, + steward, what (man) soever, whoso(-ever), worthy. Compare 802.
