This is perhaps one of the more potent weapons that we have at our disposal. Unfortunately, it is also the least understood, least used, attribute of a progressive follower of Yeshua ha’Mashiach.
This is the simplest of weapons to use – but most of us have no idea how to use it. This is the word ‘say’. Genesis 1:3 “And God said ‘let there be light’ and there was light.”
Genesis reveals that this is an attribute of the Father, which implies that it is an attribute for us to use also. But it is most important for us to take to heart under what circumstances we may not only acquire this, but also for us to witness, first hand, miracles that manifest before our eyes as a result of what we have just said.
In Genesis YHWH is working from a particular environment – that is, from the eternal Kingdom, outside space and time, in perfection Himself. Therefore, our Father was coming from authenticity – there was nothing false within Him. So He was able to command the impossible – and realise the appropriate response from His surroundings. Let’s say that YHWH was acting within His unique perfect position.
We are not so blessed. Our lives began in darkness, and we have to spend our lives gradually (by Gods grace) being transformed from it. This is manifest in the sad fact that our word is no longer trusted, and lying has almost become the acceptable thing.
If, however, we read Genesis 27, we find a challenging story of Isaac being deceived in blessing Jacob with Esau’s blessing – and he could not undo what had come out of his mouth. This is a very difficult passage for 21st century westernised people to grasp. But that is because we do not think like ancient eastern Hebrew people – we do not know how to! Until we begin to wrestle with Yeshua’s exhortation in Matthew 15:11, which implies that there is the possibility of everything perfect coming out of the body. And it is from that point of view that we should turn to the power packed word ‘am-air’… to say or to speak.
ALEPH, MEM, RESH.
I believe that this is a unique word, even in Hebrew, in that each character shares the importance of its position – you’ll see:
MEM – the act of baptism (ie dying to the world with Yeshua – then rising to perfect eternal life with Him also). This is done because of His blood spilt for you (note: Leviticus 17:11 – life is in the blood). And MEM is also water (again note: John 7:38 – rivers of living water!). Both these examples point to a perfect vital existence – so I have chosen this as the place to start ie immerse yourself in the blood/the water, and shockingly, MEM also means the Word! So, immerse yourself in the Word of God – a great place to start – and remember, all Hebrew characters can be read (and obeyed) as calls to action!
Now we add ALEPH on the one side – this is the execution of the Father’s power and authority, and I am talking about healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out demons – yes, THAT kind power and authority!
Incredibly, on the other side is RESH. It is ‘bringing something up out of the mind’. It is easy for the Westerner to accept the concept of the mind, but this is different. The English translated word ‘mind’ can also mean, in Hebrew, the spirit – or, The Spirit! That’s it! It makes absolute sense! The word to be spoken has to come from the living Word that is the Son, given power and authority that no one can stand against – that is from the Father. And energized, made manifest, brought into this reality in total obedience – by the Holy Spirit!… So, there WAS light!
