Word Time

1 Peter 5:8-9

New International Version (NIV)

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the ‘devil’ [shed: malignant (a cancerous mindset or deadly growth) prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist ‘him’ [ha-yad: the-means, the-direction, etc..], standing firm in the ‘faith’ [emuwnah: set-office, truth, etc..], because you know that the family of believers throughout the ‘world’ [ha-chedel: (the-)state of the dead, etc..] is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

Paraphrasing ‘YH’shua’ (YH’s salvation, etc..), ” ‘Your will’ (YHWH ‘Elohiym’s Truth) be done ‘on earth’ (IN US) as it is in heaven….”

Significance of the Creator’s Name:

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, YHWH] 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]

THE NAME THAT ‘EXPRESSES’ (IS) THE WORD AND WORKS OF ISRAEL’S ‘ELOHIYM:

“I WILL BE WHAT I WILL BE”.
