John 4:24

New International Version (NIV)

24 God’ [Ha-‘Elohiym: The-Great, The-Judges, etc..] is ‘spirit’ [ruwach: expression, breath, etc..], and ‘his’ [ha-ga’al’s: the-deliver(-er’s), the-redeemer’s, etc..] worshipers must ‘worship’ [shachah: do obeisance (obey), do reverence (revere), etc..] in the ‘Spirit’ [Ruwach: Expression, Breath, etc..] and in truth.”

IN THE FATHER’S EXAMPLES, IN ‘THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE’, YH’SHUA!


Strong’s Hebrew Lexicon:

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).

His:1350 ga’al gaw-al’ a primitive root, to redeem (according to the Oriental law of kinship), i.e. to be the next of kin (and as such to buy back a relative’s property, marry his widow, etc.):–X in any wise, X at all, avenger, deliver[-er(‘s)], (do, perform the part of near, next) kinsfolk(-man), purchase, ransom, redeem(-er[‘s]), revenger.

Significance of the Steward’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”.
