Word Time

Mark 9:35

International Standard Version (ISV)

35 So he sat down, called the Twelve, and told them, “If anyone wants to be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.”

Paraphrasing YH’shua (YH’s salvation), ” ‘Your will’ (YHWH ‘Elohiym: the Creator’s Word and Works, The Wisdom, The Teachings) be done ‘on earth’ (IN US /OF US) as it is in heaven, ….”


Some would say #12 a prophetic symbol – while others would just spell it out, a story about Israel, the person in the mirror, us. That Isaiah’s prophecy , which spoke to the coming messiah, that of Jesse’s lineage, YH’shua (YH’s salvation), was manifest before mankind.

A servant to lead the people back to YHWH. A prophet, teacher and messenger of salvation. A sacrificial lamb to a stubborn people, to the house of 12 tribes (Israel) (Also meaning to rule as ‘El, etc..), to the 12 ‘disciples’ (also talmidim: instructed, taught, etc..), indeed – to us – the body of YH’s salvation, may it be so.

The number 12, in this quote, proving his instructed, the disciples, even we his instructed, the Israel YHWH ‘Elohiym waits upon to be one – with.

Salvation’s message? Turn away from the ‘world’ (chedel: the state of the dead, [the] rest, etc..), be born again into, “the way, the truth and the life”, in YH’shua”, our life example! So be it.

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”.
