A HEBREW SAGE MIGHT SAY. . .
Being great does not excuse one from being good. 

 

EL SHADDAI GOD ALMIGHTY       
"When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him I am EL SHADDAI; walk in MY ways and be blameless before ME. I will establish MY covenant between ME and you, and will multiply you exceedingly." [Genesis (Berepooh) 17. 1 - 2 Tanakh, Torah] 

 

The name EL SHADDAI (ALL-SUFFICIENT ONE, ALMIGHTY GOD) is the description of GOD used some forty-eight times in the OLD COVENANT, this text is its first occurrence.  In the NEW COVENANT this name is used nine times, the last makes it clear to us that no Temple is in the Holy City, "for the LORD GOD, EL SHADDAI , and the LAMB are its Temple." [Revelation 21. 22] 

 

Accordingly, the first and last books of HOLY SCRIPTURE (First & Last indicates all Books in between) reiterates that our GOD is an OMNIPOTENT GOD, as SHADDAI means ALL-SUFFICIENT NOURISHER [comparable to breasts full of milk (shad in Hebrew means breast)]; the ALMIGHTY, MOST POWERFUL, a term exclusively for the one TRUE GOD.  The Prophet Jeremiah prayed: "Ah, ADONEY YEHOWAH! Behold, YOU made the heavens and the earth with YOUR great might and outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for YOU! YOU show lovingkindness to thousandth generation, but repay the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them O GREAT and MIGHTY GOD, whose NAME is the LORD OF HOSTS, wondrous in purpose and mighty in deed." [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 17 - 18 Tanakh, Nevi’im] 

 

Sarah laughed to herself when GOD said she would bear a son in her old age, but EL SHADDAI respond — "Is anything too hard (wondrous, amazing, incredible, extraordinary) for the LORD? I will return to you at the same season next year, according to the time of life, and Sarah shall have a son." [Genesis (Bereshith) 18. 14 Tanakh, Torah] Many years later, the angel told the virgin Miryam (Mary), engaged to a man whose name was Joseph, of the House of David, that she would have a SON. She questioned, "How can this be, since I do not know a man?" The angel answered, "with GOD nothing will be impossible." [Luke 1. 34 & 37] 

 

There are some things in EL SHADDAI that are emphatically impossible however, such as being tempted by evil [James 1. 13], HE cannot lie [Titus 1. 2], or deny HIMSELF [2 Timothy 2. 13]. Therefore, whatever HE does is right and whatever HE says is true. We may not always understand why or how HE does or says a certain thing, but in eternity we will learn that HE is able to do what HE says.  Our GREAT GOD is omnipotent (all-powerful, supreme, invincible)! 

 

EL SHADDAI did create the universe and all things by HIS spoken word and fashioned mankind into HIS OWN IMAGE.  Since we are fearfully and wonderfully made, we should not desecrate HIS handiwork. "Behold, I am YEHOWAH, ELOHEY of all flesh. Is there anything too hard for ME?" [Jeremiah (Yirmeyah) 32. 27 Tanakh, Nevi'im]  Absolutely nothing!  EL SHADDAI does all things well! 

 

 

Sha'alu (Pray) for the Shalom (Peace) of JerUSAlem and all of Israel!
Redeem Israel, O ELOHIYM, out of all their troubles!
Good Sabbath!  We praise and bless YOUR O GOD, for lovingly and graciously giving YOUR Holy Shabbat to all peoples.
Sabbath of Sh’Mini“Eighth” [Reading: Leviticus 9:1 - 11:47; 1 Samuel 20:18-42; Matthew 3:11-17]
May we be witnesses of the God'S care, love, and glorious presence through the days ahead. Enter each day with joy in our hearts and confidence that SOVEREIGN KING rules and reigns.  And, because of HIS great mercy, HE will continue to use us as HIS messengers of the GOOD NEWS to the perplexed and depraved world around us — our IMMANU’EL, the ANOINTED ONE OF GOD is with us!  My soul will continually bless the MOST HOLY LORD God for HE alone is worthy of all praise, reverence, rapturous adoration, and exaltation.
Day 13 of the Omer 

 

Praying for the peace of Jerusalem, is praying for the return of our Messiah and Lord and for the Kingdom of God He is bringing when He comes.  Then God's Will shall be done on earth as it is in Heaven and the world will experience true godly universal peace which is the fruit of Righteousness.

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising. Our Attitude of conduct: In case you missed them on your way in, take some time to become acquainted with the conduct we expect on this site. You may find our Attidudes on the main forum page. Our purpose at Scripural Studies is that the conversations move in a Gracious way. We define Gracious in the following way: 1) Not closed minded 2) Not self-promoting 3) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste proof-texting 4) Not characterized by mass amounts of cut-and-paste from other places 5) Irenic 6) Not slanderous 7) No spamming 8) Perpetual venting bitterness 9) Not confusing or disruptive But in all things you'll be welcome here
