Faith and Submission

9-19-2017, Hebrew 5777, Ethiopic 7510

  • Hebrew: מוֹדֶה אֲנִי לְפָנֶֽיךָ מֶֽלֶךְ חַי וְקַיָּים. שֶׁהֶֽחֱזַֽרְתָּ בִּי נִשְׁמָתִי בְחֶמְלָה. רַבָּה אֱמֽוּנָתֶֽךָ
  • Modeh ani lifanekha melekh chai wa’kayam shehecḥezarta banishmahti b’cḥemelah, Rabbah emunatekha.
  • I gratefully thank You, living and enduring King, for You have faithfully restored my soul great is Your faithfulness. YHWH restored my soul that I may serve Yahoshua.                                                                                         The Bible’s account of relationships is very interesting. Adam and Eve are the first relationship illustrated in the canonized Bible. YHWH’s instruction to Eve, after she sinned, was a part of burden. She was to desire her husband who shall rule over her (Bereshit/Genesis 3:16).                                         

Sarai, whose name was changed to Sarah and Abram whose name was changed to Abraham married, marry and will marry. Sarah and Abraham are the second relationship illustrated in the Bible. 

In Torah portion Noah, Terah, Abram’s Father had three sons. Abram, Nahor and Haran. Abram married Sarai, who was barren. Haran begot Lot. Haran died in his father’s life time. Nahor married Milcah. 

On the journey, from the flame of Ur Kasdim, Terah, and his family went to Canaan, at Haran, and settled there. 

YHWH commanded Abram, whose name YHWH changed, to get up and go for himself from the land, relatives, father’s house to the land YHWH would and will show him. There, YHWH promised to bless Abraham. 

The second male-female relationship that is illustrated in the Bible is between Abraham and Sarah. 

Sarah and Abraham faced many matters. Sarah had, has and will have faith. Hebrews 11:11. 

11 And by faith even Sarah, who was past childbearing age,because she considered him faithful who had made the promise.

Sarah had faith in her ish, her husband and submitted to him. Kadosh, Sacred, Divine women, we are to be after the manner of Sarah.  (1 Pete 3:5-6).

For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in YHWH used to adorn themselves.They submitted themselves to their own husbands, like Sarah, who obeyed Abraham and called him her lord, Adonai.You are (WE ARE) her daughters if you (WE) do what is right and do not give way to fear.

After the manner in the old time, the Kadosh, Sacred, Divine women, who trusted in YHWH, adorned themselves, in subjection to their own husbands. Even as Sarah obeyed Abraham, calling him Adonai, whose daughters we are, as long as we do well and are not afraid with any amazement. 

I was sent a very interesting link to a video. Todah Rabbah! The video: . The audio-video is by Abeba Desalegn, an Ethiopian singer and performer. The video is called “Teret Teret”. 

The video is like a modern day Hirut-Ruth and Boaz, Mary and Joseph audio visual. Interesting to reflect upon.  The Bible’s account of Sarah and Abraham, is one that did not report the degree, width, depth, length and breadth of great struggles that preceded their coming together. 

In faith, daughters of Sarah, should have faith that YHWH is working through, and in our own ish, husband to accomplish what is best for and in YHWH’S best interest, and the best interest of YHWH’S people. 

In Torah portion Haazinu, YHWH’S kindness is to Israel, Yaacob, YHWH’S measure of YHWH’S inheritance. 

YHWH’s people suckle from sweet honey from a rock, a stone, and oil from a flinty, stony mood, rough personality. Rams born in Bashan, smooth, fertile soil and he goats, natural truth of external man.

May we not become fat, obese, plump, heavy-mentally, spiritually nor physically. May we not kick and rebel against YHWH. In faith and submission to YHWH, hope and wait for YHWH to make and keep The Promise to Israel and Yaacob.

 Shalom Ihit Ahkotee,

Mary Rose
