The Truth in Hebrew

When you’re looking for a good place to begin to learn the truth of God, one place you’ll want to check out is in the Hebrew Bible. That’s because there are so many interesting passages that can help you learn the things you need to know.

Isaiah 10:20

In Isaiah 10, God’s prophetic word tells us how things will work out for our nation. He gives us a glimpse of how our enemies will attack us and how we will respond. Among other things, Isaiah reminds us of the anointing of the Messiah for Israel.

The Lord is in control of the whole world. No one can stop His plan.

A new king from the family of Jesse will come from the family of Egypt or Assyria. This new king will make the people of Israel famous. When he arrives in the royal city of Jerusalem, he will raise a flag for the nations to see.

After the new king is crowned, he will have intelligence and wisdom from the Spirit of the Lord. He will know what the *Lord wants and how to carry out the plans of the *Lord.

The king will deal with the poor, chastise wicked people and punish evildoers. He will also be fair to the poor and fair to the wicked.

People from the nations will hear about the Messiah’s arrival and want to learn more about him. They will want to know about the all-powerful God of the Jews.

Even though the nations will be against them, a remnant from Israel will return to the All-Powerful God of Israel. Their strength will not depend on their enemies, but on the Lord.

The people of the nations will be afraid of the name Judah. Some think a reference is to the future punishment of Satan. Others argue that the prophet is referring to the redemption of believers.

Among the things that will happen to Israel is the destruction of Syria. Both Syria and Israel will lose their defenses.

The “Seal of God”

If you’ve been in the Seventh Day Adventist Church for a while, you may have heard of the “seal of God”. This symbol of protection is something that Adventists must understand, and act upon with high and holy principles.

There are two types of seals. The first is the one placed at the time of salvation and redeemed. It remains with the person for his or her lifetime.

The second is the one affixed to the law to show that it is a binding force. During the end of times, the faithful will be given a seal to prove their commitment to God.

The first seal of the gospel is a declaration that a person is saved by Christ. However, the seal can be broken if he or she falls away from faith. A person can also receive the seal of the Holy Spirit.

It is a sign of the Holy Spirit’s work in a person’s heart. People who receive this sign are those who show loyalty to God and follow his commandments. Those who don’t are those who accept a man-made institution as a Sabbath.

Another sign is the Ten Commandments. These must be on the person’s forehead in the form of a frontlet. They will help to show who’s keeping the law and who’s not.

While there are many things that will be happening on Earth at the end of the age, there will be some very serious tests for people who get the seal of the Lord. In order to pass these tests, the person must be without spot or blemish before God.

Some have suggested that the seal of the Lord is a symbol of the Sabbath. But a better description is of the Ten Commandments.

Hesed

When we think of hesed in Hebrew, we may be thinking of the steadfast love of God. This enduring love is based on the covenant between God and his people. It is a love that abides even after a sin has been committed.

Hesed can also be translated as mercy, grace, or faithfulness. These terms are often used in tandem with the word ’emeth. ‘Emeth is usually translated as truth.

But hesed is much more than the words we use to describe it. God’s hesed is an unflinching love that extends itself to the least of his people. It is the underlying principle of OT deliverance. In fact, hesed is one of the three virtues that hold the world together.

The concept of hesed is also found in the New Covenant Scriptures. This is a testament to the pure manifestation of God’s lovingkindness.

In the Old Testament, hesed is a term that appears about 250 times. Most of these references are in the book of Psalms. However, there are also other references that point out the act of hesed. For instance, John 1:14-17, Mic 6:8 and Zechariah 7:9.

Hesed is a Hebrew term that expresses God’s loyalty to the covenant. It is a concept that encompasses the underlying idea of belonging together, mercy extended to the least of his people, and betrothal.

In the New Covenant, the concept of hesed is more closely associated with forgiveness and mercy. This enduring love is based on God’s plan to save the world from its sins. Those who believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ are redeemed and released from the slavery of sin. Unlike other world religions, the true Christian message is characterized by its unconditional lovingkindness.

‘Aman

The word ‘Aman’ in Hebrew has been used in the Bible and on a number of occasions. However, there is no historical evidence to support any particular etymology.

‘Aman’ in Hebrew is a tri-consonantal root which is related to the word ‘Yamin’. It is also cognate with the word ‘ne’eman’. Both ‘Yamin’ and ‘ne’eman’ are Hebrew words that mean ‘right’.

‘Aman’ is a term which has been translated into a number of other languages. Some of the other names are ‘Aman-Ra’ and ‘Aman-Tuat’. The term ‘Aman’ is found on inscriptions of ‘especially Egyptian origin’. In addition, the word ‘Aman’ has been borrowed from Greek to Latin and from Latin to Hebrew.

Aman is described as a hidden god. He is said to be the king of the gods. His splendour is ‘the splendour of the heavens’. This refers to his head of a uraeus, his scepter, and his uraeus.

‘Aman’ in Hebrew has not been compared to the ‘Aman’ in Egyptian religion. The word is thought to be the origin of the Egyptian deity Amun.

‘Aman’ in Hebrew was the name of an Egyptian god in the Exodus. It is described as a god that traversed eternity.

‘Aman’ in Hebrew may have been a pre-Islamic Arabic word. However, it does not appear in the Quran. Instead, it must have come from a pre-Islamic Semitic language. Likewise, the word ‘Aman’ in Arabic has three main possibilities.

Although the Egyptian word ‘Aman’ has no textual source, there are historical documents which prove that the word was in use before hebrew civilization. One of these documents is the Life of St. Melania, which was written in the fifth century.

Emet

Emet, in Hebrew, is a word which means truth. It is the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet. This word is also translated as faithfulness, trust, and firmness. In the Bible, it is used to describe God’s character.

When the Israelites were traveling to the land, they were told by their leader, Jethro, to hire men with “emet”. The Hebrew word emet carries a sense of stability and reliability.

Many prophets have complained about a lack of emet in the land. Isaiah 59:14 and Zechariah 8:16 mention this.

Some of the Hebrew authors of the Bible have used emet to describe the integrity of the God of the universe. Other sages have said that the emet is the seal of God. They believed that God placed His name in the opening chapters of the Torah.

Truth is an omnipresent, all-encompassing presence. Every human experience is in fact an expression of truth. And truth is what we must learn to live in. But many people will have trouble recognizing it when they’re deceived. Nonetheless, it is our duty to seek it out and to obey it.

The Spirit of Truth is the foundation of existence in creation. As a result, the sages believe that the creatures in the world have a role to play in the completion of Creation.

A Hebrew word, emet is a reliable basis for the creation of the world. That is why the Jews call it the seal of God.

Emet is a symbol of the power of language. Language is given to teach truth. Truth is a demand to live in light. Yet, many will mistake darkness for light, and will not recognize deceitful spirits.
