Abraham was the first man called “a Hebrew”; all who left Ur and Haran with him were also called Hebrews. These men all dwell with Yehovah, their Elohim, and serve only Him (while their woman, serve only them). A man is either a servant of men or a servant of Yehovah – there is no middle ground.
The Hebrew word Elohim (usually translated as “God”) has been terribly confused these days. An “El” is the one who makes the laws and the judgments which men (and women too these days) are to conform their lives to. The “elohim” are those who make the statutes and ordinances and judgments that their people are to uphold. Yehovah is the Hebrews’ only Elohim, their only lawmaker and judge. He defends the men who will leave the kingdom of their birth and make themselves wholly His.
Today, however, the men who sincerely want to do what it takes to become Yehovah’s people have not been taught “Kingdom”. In fact, many believe that they can remain a good US, Canadian, South African, United Kingdom, Australian, etc. citizen and still be part Yehovah’s Kingdom. Folks, WE HAVE LEARNED LIES! A man can not serve in two kingdoms; like a woman, a man is only to have one master.
Yehovah Is The Only Elohim Of The Hebrews
Yehovah even calls Himself the Elohim of the Hebrews, He is not the Elohim of any Egyptians!
Then they will heed your voice; and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt; and you shall say to him, ‘Yehovah, Elohim of the Hebrews has met with us; and now, please, let us go three days’ journey into the wilderness, that we may slaughter to Yehovah, our Elohim.’ (Exo 3:18)
Then Yehovah said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh and tell him, ‘Thus says Yehovah, Elohim of the Hebrews: “Let My people go, that they may serve Me. (Exo 9:1)
So Moses and Aaron came in to Pharaoh and said to him, “Thus says Yehovah, Elohim of the Hebrews: ‘How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me? Let My people go, that they may serve Me. (Exo 10:3)
In Yasher we will see 10,000 Amorite men with swords who have come to wipe Jacob, his seed (11 boys between 8 and 14), and his 101 servants from the earth because of what they did to Shechem. When the armies come against them, Isaac prays, as does Jacob, and reminds Yehovah of His promise to Abraham and to himself. He then asks Yehovah to pervert the counsel of these Amorite kings.
Yasher 34:66 Now therefore, O Yehovah Elohim, Elohim of the whole earth, pervert, I pray thee, the counsel of these kings that they may not fight against my sons.
67 And impress the hearts of these kings and their people with the terror of my sons and bring down their pride that they may turn away from my sons.
Yehovah Protects The Hebrews And Is Exceedingly Fond Of Them
Now listen to the counsel which the kings’ advisers give to them.
Yasher 35:2 And Yehovah heard the prayers of Isaac and Jacob, and he filled the hearts of all these kings’ advisers with great fear and terror that they unanimously exclaimed,
3 Are you silly this day, or is there no understanding in you, that you will fight with the Hebrews, and why will you take a delight in your own destruction this day?
Yasher 35:5 Surely you know that their Elohim is exceedingly fond of them, and has done mighty things for them, such as have not been done from days of old, and amongst all the elohim of nations, there is none who can do like unto His mighty deeds.
Yasher 35:10 10 And surely you know the Elohim of these Hebrews is much delighted with them, and they are also delighted with him, for they know that he delivered them from all their enemies.
Now the kings’ advisers remind them of all the mighty things which Yehovah did for Abraham.
He delivered him from all who tried to kill him when he was young.
Yasher 35:6 Surely he delivered their father Abraham, the Hebrew, from the hand of Nimrod, and from the hand of all his people who had many times sought to slay him.
He delivered him from Nimrod’s fiery furnace.
Yasher 35:7 He delivered him also from the fire in which king Nimrod had cast him, and his Elohim delivered him from it.
He deliver the 4 kings of Elam and their 800,000 men into Abram’s hands.
Yasher 35:8 And who else can do the like? surely it was Abraham who slew the four kings of Elam, when they had touched his brother’s son who in those days dwelt in Sodom.
9 And took his servant who was faithful in his house and a few of his men , and they pursued the kings of Elam in one night and killed them, and restored to his brother’s son all his property which they had taken from him.
10 And surely you know the Elohim of these Hebrews is much delighted with them, and they are also delighted with him, for they know that he delivered them from all their enemies.
These kings and their advisers knew the story of Abraham’s great love for his Elohim and his willingness to bring even his own son as an olah offering, and how Yehovah prevented him from doing it. They all had heard the story of what Yehovah, the Elohim of the Hebrews, did to Pharaoh and later Avi-melek, king of Gerar, on account of their taking Abraham’s woman.
Finally, their advisers remind them,
Yasher 35:14 And behold, we saw with our eyes that Esau, the brother of Jacob, came to him with four hundred men, with the intention of slaying him, for he remembered that he had taken away from him his father’s blessing.
15 And he went to meet him when he came from Syria, to smite the mother with the sons. And who delivered him from his hands, but his Elohim in whom he trusted? He delivered him from the hand of his brother and also from the hands of his enemies, and surely he again will protect them.
16 Who does not know that it was their Elohim who inspired them with strength to do to the town of Shechem the evil which you heard of?
17 Could it then be with their own strength that two men could destroy such a large city as Shechem, had it not been for their Elohim in whom they trusted? he said and did unto them all this to slay the inhabitants of the city, in their city.
18 And can you then prevail over them who have come forth together from your city to fight with the whole of them, even if a thousand times as many more should come to your assistance?
19 Surely you know and understand that you do not come to fight with them, but you come to war with their Elohim who made choice of them, and you have therefore all come this day to be destroyed.
These Canaanites knew and understood how powerful the Elohim of the Hebrews is and had the wisdom to to preserve their own lives. But today, the world has no clue who the Hebrews are and who their Elohim is. This is due to an even greater darkness which has fallen upon all the kingdoms of the earth.
I see it all the time on Facebook, many believe that they are “Hebrews” because they are “leaving the traditions of men,” and I feel sorry for them. They actually think that they have already become something that they have not, especially if they are a woman. We have so much to learn and it all begins with understanding Yehovah’s created purpose for a man and for a man’s woman.
The good news for a man is about Yehovah’s eternal and unchanging kingdom; coming-out of the kingdom of his birth and joining himself to Yehovah and His Hebrew people who also have already done the same, and later, came into covenant with Him at Passover.
In this lesson we also discussed what it meant to put away “the foreign gods which were in their hands and the rings which were in their ears.” The former has to do with the 2nd commandment and the latter has to do with who we belong to and serve (the 1st commandment). The equivalent today of a ring in our ear is the documents most will find in their wallets which declare who they belong to and serve.
I hope you will see in this lesson the great Elohim whom only the Hebrews belong to and faithfully serve.
Hebrews Are Kept Safe By Yehovah
