Yes I am saying that there are two woman in the garden....... Eve the mother of all things earthly and the other one being the woman from above who Paul spoke of as the mother of us all whom I say is also the one that has the seed that will always be at enmity with Satan
Hi Doug, One thing that I've long wondered about is that our Lord's name is the feminine form of the word for salvation--that is, my question, why feminine?
Genesis 49:18I have waited for thy salvation, O LORD."thy salvation"
yesh-oo'-awFeminine passive participle
of H3467[; something saved,
that is, (abstractly) deliverance; hence aid, victory, prosperity: - deliverance, health, help (-ing), salvation, save, saving (health), welfare.I have waited for y'shû‛âh, O LORD.
29 Now, Master,
You can dismiss Your slave in peace,
according to Your word.
30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation.
Why is Jesus portrayed as the feminine? The masculine form of the word 'salvation' is yasha H3467 (which means to be open, wide or free).
The first form is the person being saved, where as the second is the person who is doing the saving.
Christ, as our Saviour, has to come to this earth first, and be in need of deliverance himself, which deliverance he receives on the cross. Before the cross, then, there is a kind of passive type of deliverance, the feminine, whereas after the cross, it becomes masculine and pro-active, that is, yasha.
1 Chronicles 16:35And say ye, Save us, O God of our salvation, and gather us together, and deliver us from the heathen, that we may give thanks to thy holy name, and glory in thy praise.
[God] "of our salvation"
yeh'-shah, yay'-shahFrom H3467
deliverance, prosperity: - safety, salvation, saving.
Our Salvation God is masculine but his salvation, the Lord Jesus on this earth, is feminine.15And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
The seed comes from the woman, but it produces a manchild."seed"
From H2232; seed; figuratively fruit, plant, sowing time, posterity: - X carnally, child
, fruitful, seed (-time), sowing-time.
I'm beginning to understand the many 'passive'[feminine] instructions we are given in the name of [our Lord's] salvation--turn the other cheek, love your enemies, repay evil with good. This is the female seed that will overcome, and restore us to the garden of our God, as the sons of God.
Galatians 4:26But Jerusalem which is above is free, which is the mother of us all.
