Colossians 3:1-2

21st Century King James Version

“3 If ye then be risen with ‘Christ’ [ha-Mashiyach: the-Anointed, the-Consecrated, etc..], seek those things which are ‘above’ [‘elyon: supreme, highest, etc..] where ‘Christ’ [Mashiyach: Anointed, Consecrated, etc..] ‘sitteth’ [mowshab: abode, space in time, dwell in, etc..]  at the ‘right hand’ [‘aman: assurance, trust, etc..] of ‘God’ [the-‘Elohiym: the-Magistrates, the-Judges, the-Angels, etc..]. Set your affection on things ‘above’ [‘elyon: supreme, highest, etc..], not on things on the earth.” (Also see: John 14:12)

A heavenly (higher) or earthly (lower) wisdom? In short! Salvation or destruction! As for me, my house is with the highest. May your house be too, I pray in YH’shua.

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

Significance of the Name of the ‘Elohiym of Israel:

YH old to oldest YHWH (YH):

“Moses says: May I say who sent me? He asks for ‘God’s‘ [‘Elohiym’s] name. The Israelites will want to know who has sent me, and ‘God’ [‘Elohiym] replies with a sentence, “Ehyeh asher ehyeh.” This is a first person sentence that can be translated, “I am who I am”, or perhaps, “I will be who I will be,”.. Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/I_Am_that_I_Am

The name that is what the Creator is /does! The Name that calls us to be /do as the Creator behind the name would. May it be so in YH’shua.

May, “YHWH bless you and keep you!” Numbers 6: 24-26.
