The original www

 
By: Beloved Bondservant
      
            In the wake of the world wide phenomena identified as the World Wide Web there exists a mystery in the Christian world of epic proportions, that can be unlocked by this same acronym the world has made prominent.  However, before we discuss the acronym in question, it will be necessary to take a little trip down etymology lane to bring the original perspective to a modern world.  There does exist one word that is used collectively to describe our omnipresent God.  It is a word that has been the source of confusion and division.  A word that in our modern vernacular provides an abstract understanding of a description for the concrete God we serve.  Without further ado, the word in question is Trinity. 
There are two problems with this choice of wording that has unfortunately led to more questions then answers, more problems then solutions.  The first problem arises when we attempt to use an unbiblical term to define the One whom the book is about.  By doing this you have no frame of reference to return to, and so biblical discussions find themselves taking a worldly debate.  The bottom line, without scriptural support only confusion can ensue.  Secondly, the definition one is forced to take to build their defense on can be ambiguous.  Encarta defines trinity two ways1:
1.
three: a group of three
2.
being three: the condition of existing as three persons or things
     Both definitions loosely interpreted can lead one into the idea that we serve three Gods rather then one.  Again having no direct biblical reference to use in order to explain your position we find ourselves attempting to use physical examples to explain this term.  Couple this with the myriad of languages and cultures we are called to minister to without a universal consensus and understanding we could very well be the cause of leading others astray.  Nevertheless, since all languages originated with God at the tower of Babel we can rest knowing this situation has not taken him by surprise. Fortunately, we are living in a time where God is fulfilling his promise as written in the book of the prophet Zephaniah, he has restored unto us a pure language in which we can grow closer to him.2 
The purpose of this month’s article is to provide ammunition to the believer concerning the triune nature of YHWH (God).  Hopefully, with this ammunition you will not become complacent or comfortable with this knowledge, but rather will endeavor to seek further enlightenment into the pure language our Father has restored. 
The bible is likened to a weapon, today, we have traded in our swords for guns, and lack of knowledge of the word of God is as helpful as having a gun when a robber breaks in, but not knowing where you put it.  Having the word of God, but lacking understanding of it is equivalent to having a gun, with no bullets.  Each month we have been learning one character in the restored ancient Hebrew language in a “Hebrew Moment”.  These “Hebrew Moments” are bite size pieces of the restored language I mentioned earlier from scripture.  In this hour in history, as a believer it is dangerous to be ignorant of the word of God.  In a country like ours to have the type of access we do to the word of God and be ignorant of its meaning is irresponsible on our part.  Eternity for those we meet is dependent on us getting an understanding of the word of God.  As a nation that has been given much, much is indeed required.3
Each month it has been my goal to give you ammunition to live out your faith maintaining the character of God regardless of what the world says or does.  Hopefully not only blessing you with knowledge of the physical substances necessary to preserve your health, but more importantly helping you feed your soul that necessary spiritual food so that you will be able to make the right decisions.  Nevertheless, none of that information can be made relevant, or as the word of God puts it flesh to you without a clear understanding of whose you are.  When we understand the nature of God we discover our purpose in God.  
Keeping the above thought in mind, we are going to take a Hebrew trail that will unravel the mystery behind the veil of this modern word that has been an enigma for us to explain.  I feel as if it is my responsibility to prepare you for the upcoming journey we will take.  This revelation is not for the casual Christian, the sideline bystander or the occasional backslider.  The faint of heart is not ready to unravel this web.  Our English dictionaries can’t take us where we need to be, it falls hopelessly short of conveying this epiphany. 
Who better to define His nature then God himself? 
He does so in scripture, however, the English language does not uncover this age-old truth.  Modern Hebrew also has followed suit with its symbol adopted letters.  This only proves in the end, that letters of man have absolutely nothing in common with the characters of the Almighty.  Thus our journey requires that we rewind back to the characters that were written on stone and convert them into the language we use today.  No other language captures the beautiful story of the Almighty like ancient Hebrew. 
            Understanding the triune nature of God in which the word trinity conveys is seen through this picturesque language.  The Hebrew language unlike the English is action (verb) based rather then adjective (description) based.  The language is very effective at revealing the abstract meaning through action, but only the ancient Hebrew shows the meaning of each character in such a way that in one picture you see the thousand words being illustrated.  This language is functional, meaning it is based on what something does.  The reason it is so difficult to reveal in English is because our language is a series of abstract symbols that is adjective/noun oriented.  English would be the equivalent of focusing on the fact that something exist, while Hebrew focuses on why it exists.  Ancient Hebrew language, as it was given by the Almighty is based on concrete characters that reveal both the function of that which we can see out our window along with what it is.  In fact the acronym used to describe the picture you view on a webpage from the computer code operating behind the scenes is known as WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) originated in the ancient Hebrew language.  Man gave us abstract letters, while YHWH gave us character. 
In the world it is said that the best way to hide something is in plain sight.  Keeping that thought in mind, what do you think would be the best word for the Creator of the Universe to use to describe Himself to us?  What word would be in plain sight, yet within it, hide this truth?   I would submit to you the word, God.  The English definition for this word is simply Supreme Being.4  How does this definition reveal to you the function of the Almighty?  Fortunately, Yah has provided us context clues to help us circumnavigate these critical issues to understanding who He is and who we are in Him.   
A common form of writing that helps us draw a comparison between two things is called a metaphor.  In Genesis 1, this is what we see taking place when Yah says, “Let us make man in our image after our likeness.”5    So, how are we in the image and likeness of God?  How does the definition of God in English reveal this truth?  Let’s take a Hebrew look into this word for God. Elohim, is the Hebrew rendering of the word God.  If you have been keeping up with my newsletters then you can almost guess what will come next.  Using English letters of this Hebrew word provides no insight to the triune nature of the Almighty.  However, the ancient text presents very clear pictures that we can both glean from and work towards.

The characters above are written in Hebrew order which begins from right to left, below each character you will find the English pronunciation along with their concrete, action, and functional meanings.  In Genesis verse 26 that word God is the word we are looking at Elohim (H430)6 and it is important to note that in Hebrew in order to make a word plural two characters are added to the end of the singular word, the last two characters (yod mem = mi) in Elohim reveals its plurality.  Therefore, when you see El or la you are seeing the singular word for God.  So as we look at each character of this word from right to left this is the picture it reveals. 
Aleph (a) is the picture of an ox’s head and is the first character in the Alephbet.  If you are familiar at all with a farm and how it functions then you know one of the obvious characteristics of an ox is its strength.  In Hebrew the characters also have a numerical value, making this character also mean first.  The second character is pronounced Lamed (l) it is the picture of a staff similar to a cane or a rod.  The staff was used by one who is in authority as in the shepherd who led his sheep or the rod that Moses used to show to Pharaoh the power of God.  So when you put just the first two characters together which make up the singular form of God we see that it means “the Strong Authority” or “the first Shepherd or Authority” both of which describe the function and the role of Father God.  However, how many men have seen the Father?  Scripture teaches us that no man hath seen God at any time, but the Son hath declared Him who is in the bosom of the Father. This reveals to us that there is an aspect of God that cannot be seen by man.  Is there an aspect of us that is like this? 
God himself provides a witness to His authenticity to us, which is why it was important that the Son come to declare what no man has seen, but him.  This makes Yahoshua a key witness to us of the Father’s validity.  Now hopefully you are beginning to see why understanding the triune nature of God is essential to our faith.  God keeps the same principles by which he requires us to function.  Hence He establishes who He is by two witnesses which brings me back to the last three characters in Elohim.  The character Hey (e) pictures someone with their hands raised to heaven.  It is the third character in this word and its meaning appropriately portrays the connection between the first two characters and the last two.  As scripture itself verifies the unique role of “the Father”.  Let’s examine the evidence of this.  Yahoshua answered one who came to him about his mother and his brother standing without, and the response from Him to them was, “Who is my mother? and who are my brethren?7  His response was very clear, he who does the will of his father, which is in heaven, the same is his brother, and sister, and mother.Clearly setting the will of the Father apart from the ones who do them, which by comparison include even himself.  Further evidence is seen in the passage of scripture where Yahoshua says call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your father which is in heaven.He doesn’t say for only one is your mother or your brother, but clearly distinguishes the difference between the heavenly Father and anyone else.  While we are connected to the Father so long as we are committed to do the will of the Father, make no mistake that scripture makes it clear those who are connected to the Father are so only by their willingness to do his will. 
Still not a believer of that, then consider the conversation Yahoshua has with the Pharisees in the book of John where he clearly states that God is not their Father but rather the Devil is, and he connects them to the devil based on what they do.  He also in that passage reveals this principle in the natural when he states to them he knows they are Abraham’s seed, acknowledging their biological descendency, but then says they are not Abraham’s seed based on what they are doing.  Revealing they are doing something contrary to the seed in which they claim connection to.10  So fittingly within these characters the middle character conveys the awesome connection to the latter two.  This character renders the vision of surrender, awe, or praise, the Father is literally telling us we are about to see something that will connect us to Him.  The character shows someone beholding something that is greater then they are. 
The last two characters which are necessary to pluralize a word in Hebrew carry within them the only two witnesses we have to establish our character.  Yod (i) is the picture of a man’s arm similar to the symbol on the package of an Arm and Hammer baking soda box.   It reveals the picture we are all so familiar with seeing when young boys coming into puberty attempt to prove to their peers they are entering manhood, their bulging biceps.  It is a man’s attempt to show a woman what he was working with.  A picture of an arm would be used because it is usually your hand and arm that will be the main part of your body used in any form of manual labor.  Therefore it means to work or to throw or to make since all three usually require the use of your arm and hand to accomplish. 
Finally, the last character Mem (m) is the picture of waves, in Hebrew this typically applied to liquids such as water or blood.  However, we know from science there are waves that exist that man cannot see with the naked eye.  However both are real, and those are light waves and sound waves.  Therefore by extension one can use this same character to apply to those waves as well.  These two together reveal the two witnesses of God.  We base our decisions on these same two witnesses.  Popular cliché’s were formed from this root, such as; “A man is no better then his word” or “actions speak louder then words”, and you can probably think of a few others.  Bottomline the only way people will know you is by what you do and what you say, and your integrity is determined by having agreement between the two. 
The Strong Authority Reveals himself by what He Does and Says.
            Scripture says, “let us make man in our image after our likeness”11  Now consider this is there any other way then by what you say and do that you can make your will known to anyone?  Therefore the same characteristics, pun intended, that make up Elohim directly connects to the nature that exists within us.
Understanding this foundation will make it easier to explain the original WWW.
The Will
What is it that the Son (Yahoshua = Jesus) said He came to do?  The will of God.12  Who did He say God was?  His father. 13  So just with those two questions answered and understood one can safely say the Father is the one who has the will in the Godhead.  He is the First authority in which all else comes from, just as the Father simply was and is, who before the Spirit moved over the face of the deep or the word of God spoke to say let there be light, thoughts were made manifest in the first words of Genesis.  Hence the first W in the original WWW is the Will which is revealed by the Father, but was executed perfectly by the Son. 
            Scripture makes this clear in that when the Son comes He constantly spoke of doing the will of the Father.  Abraham is specifically identified by the title Father and is the first prophet mentioned in scripture, yet scripture never reports any specific prophecy he gave.  So that being the case how is he a prophet?  In the book of Revelation John received a clear understanding of what prophecy was, he said the testimony of Yahoshua is the Spirit of prophecy.14  Abraham’s life was a prophetic picture of the Father, and Isaac’s life is a prophetic picture of the Son who did the will of the Father.  Projecting the image and likeness of the Father is the will of God for us as His creation.  This is why the enemy desires to pervert that order by flipping the script.  When wives and childrens vision is prioritized above the husband/father we pervert the order of Yah.  As this is a necessary function not just in any household to work in harmony but any business or ministry.  Operating two visions simultaneously would be the equivalent of having two heads on one body.  Only confusion can result from ignoring the order of Yah.  Small wonder depression, suicide and all manner of mental torture is running rampant in our nation. 
We must choose whose will we will follow, the heavenly father’s will or our own.  His will or the will of the enemy?  There is no middle ground and none of us have an excuse because the son modeled perfect obedience to the will of the Father in love.  When we pervert the order of God by ignoring his authority we invite torment into our front door. 
The Work
            In order to understand anything even the end we must go back to the beginning.  In the beginning before any words were spoken the Spirit of God moved over the face of the deep.  The very first verb used after the creation of the heavens and the earth was associated with the Spirit of God.  The Spirit of God is the same as the Holy Spirit, which is also the same as the Holy Ghost, and the Spirit of truth which was from the beginning.  As the Father provides the will, the Holy Spirit represents the character that should be revealed in woman.  Think it not strange that you consistently see the men of God meeting their bride at a well.  We see that same characteristic represented in the Holy Spirit that is moving over the face of the deep.  We are the ones who do the work behind the scene.  This is why the Proverbs 31 woman we read about is so busy, yet its not her that is praised at the gates but rather her husband is praised because of the work she does.  The Holy Spirit’s role is not to toot his own horn, but rather to help us fulfill the will of the Father. 
There must first be the Spirit of God that moves over the darkness of the heart of man, before the word of God can be heard.  This is why Yahoshua would say, “he that hath ears to hear let him hear…”15 
The Spirit of God must move over the face of the deep before the voice of God can be heard.  In the ministry of Messiah we see that there were no miracles done by Him until after the Holy Spirit who came down in the form of a dove moved upon Him.  It is the work of God that must move within us, before the word of God can illuminate our darkness.  There is an inside work that the Holy Spirit does so that you can receive the Light of the Word. We are instructed by Yahoshua not to even go into ministry until the Holy Spirit has moved over us.16   Light begins at the moving of the Holy Spirit and to move in ministry without light is to find ourselves stumbling aimlessly in the dark.
Word
            The son reveals the will of the Father through words.  The son of God (Yahoshua) is the Word of God.  God’s word is forever established in heaven, and make no mistake that not one jot or tittle will be wasted or unaccounted for.  The word first appears when God said, “Let there be light: and there was light.”17   John the Apostle saw the revelation of this in the first five verses of John chapter 1. 
     In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (Joh 1:1-5)
           
            Have you ever considered what light it was that lit up the earth since the Sun, moon, and stars didn’t appear until day four?  That light on day one was the light of men.  He is the light that shines in our darkness.  The one amber in the fire that gives you light from a distance to follow until you see the full brightness of His stature.  That is what life is, we are traveling in a world of darkness and He gives us instructions that if we follow him it will lead us to the fullness of His presence.  He makes all obstacles worth going through so that we can eventually find ourselves being in His image and likeness.  He is the son who is in the bosom of the Father that has been made flesh that our heart of stone could be made into a heart of flesh.  He is unchanging, He is the same word that spoke from the beginning, he is not a different word from the Old and the New Testament, but the same word that always was. The New Testament was not written to correct the old covenant, but rather to change the heart of the believer to empower them so that they can keep His covenant with a new heart. 
He fulfilled an even older Priesthood so that He could have what He wanted from Exodus 19:6 a Kingdom of priests not just one tribe of priests.   This is the Gospel the Apostle’s preached, not a new Gospel, but the same one that Moses preached.18
Whose will is it that you do? Do you do your parents will or your heavenly Father’s will?  Yahoshua knew He had to be about His Father’s business, and that was not the business of Joseph, but a much greater calling if He was going to redeem mankind.  Who is the force within you?  Is it based on Eastern mysticism where you are led by every wind of doctrine or is it the Holy Spirit that worketh in you to will and to do of His good pleasure?19   
Finally, what word do you serve?  Is it the Word that was from the beginning that has been consistent to the end?  Or is it man’s word, be it ministers who are supposed to be pointing you to God, and not to themselves.  The scriptures teach us that in the end there would be lying signs and wonders that even if it were possible the very elect would be fooled.20   
We have seen that the witness of Elohim has been revealed in its original language and it is the same witness that has been entrusted unto us, we know the Father’s will the same way the Son who was made flesh knew His will.  By the harmony of the work and word of God it has been made known to us.  While the world wide web has taken the entire world under its captive sway, isn’t it good to know that the nature of God has not only been entrusted to us, but within us.

Word Games
By: Beloved Bondservant
   
 
GMO,
Substantially Equivalent,
Marijuana,
hemp
 
Each of these words strike a chord with people.  Whether it is ignorance, or disdain we have been raised to accept propaganda pushed by our leaders as the gospel without investigation and with blind trust.  The key that will help you understand how to win this word game is summed up in three words, Follow the money!  If you want to find where deception, greed, corruption, and scandal come from, then just follow the money.  The same logic and reasoning investigators are trained to use in order to determine who committed a crime, we willingly ignore.  Motive!  Scripture puts it this way, “the Love of money is the root of all sorts of evil.1” It is the driving horse behind the Great men of the earth the scriptures talk about.  The heart of man can easily be led to depravity. 
The above words in this game have been used to strike fear, anxiety, skepticism, intrigue, and acceptance.  Years of indoctrination through institutions have made us purchasers of their delusions.  It is the greatest Ponzi scheme to exist since the word was coined because only those daring enough to unplug from the mainstream spoon feeding media are set free from it.  Anyone sane enough not to buy into their insanity has been labeled, “Quacks”, belittled and demeaned because they chose not to go through Brainwash University to get their education.  While the public continues to get sicker and sicker in a nation that supposedly has reached the top of the mythical evolutionary chain.  We have purchased the biggest lie ever sold, that we can improve on God. 
Decades after the increase of degenerative diseases you now have health professionals, acknowledging that the Biblical diet provides the best options for the prevention of degenerative diseases, without giving credit to the Creator of course.  So in short we have only advanced to discover there was nothing wrong in the beginning. 
One of the greatest tragedies forced on the plates of the American populace was the day Monsanto decided to recreate the perfect gift God gave us in food for its poisonous counterpart.  This intrusive food substitute has become the Gestapo of the world.  Like cancer spreading beyond borders, raising havoc for those who are truly environmentally conscious and making villains of those who dare to demand substance from the food they purchase.  We have been bamboozled to trade in life giving nutrition for artificial flavors; enticed to accept that scientific innovation has improved on the time tested faithfulness of scriptural precedence.  We find ourselves the test subject of Dr. Jekyll’s laboratory.  We find ourselves engaged in a study we didn’t have the privilege of signing up for.  Nature has never failed us, yet we continue to attempt to improve on a system that works fine with little help from us. 
GMO stands for Genetically Modified Organisms and uncovering its far reaching hand is like uncovering the matrix, except one is not afforded the choice before they swallow the pill.  There is no way I can do justice to one of the greatest heists of modern history, but to recommend a must see documentary if you have any concern about the world your children will inherit after you’re gone.  The video is called “Controlling Your Foods” and it is an unbiased look across the world at the devastating affects of GMO crops.  If possible I recommend downloading this video, there are definite efforts being taken to sensor this information.  I had to go through a couple of sights that pulled the video off line before I found this one.  So if the link doesn’t work just look it up online by its title.  It provides historical reference, all the major players behind it, and how these poisonous crops are contaminating the soil.  It is by far the best documentary I have seen on the topic, its not a U.S. created documentary, but it does present a fresh look at the politics and dangers behind it.  It is pretty lengthy, but well worth watching.  We cannot afford to continue to turn a blind eye to the overwhelming evidence that there is something seriously wrong with our food supply.  If we do, it will be at our own demise.  Scripture warns us nothing good comes out of ignorance.2
How does the term Substantially Equivalent play a role in all of this?  This is the legal loophole under which this subpar food has been allowed to contaminate our food supply undetected.  A bill was passed irrespective of the consent of the people affected that allows genetically mutated byproducts to be sold to you and I as though it was real food under this deceptive wording.  It’s not a term you as a citizen would be aware of, but men who we trusted enough to put in office have access to this nationwide experiment on the American people, which allows rich men to sell us something other then what we think we are buying.  So for instance when you go into the grocery store you may think you are purchasing corn but instead you may be purchasing something that is equivalent, and under this clause you will never know because this clause allows these companies to sell it to you without the benefit of a label.  Making you an unsuspecting participant in a government experiment, not just at your expense, but has proven to be at your detriment. 
 The full ramification of the danger of consuming large quantities of this food masquerade is nearly impossible to uncover.  The greatest danger to this huge test pool that works to the inventor of this diabolical seeds favor is because the foods aren’t labeled makes it difficult to trace diseases back to them.  Fortunately there has been some evidence that has surfaced that presents some challenges that should concern us. The AAEM (American Academy of Environmental Medicine) acknowledges that GM food can leave material behind in us, possibly causing long term problems.  Genes inserted into GM seed can transfer into the DNA of bacteria living inside of us.  Products such as soy has revealed that the insecticidal residue that is inserted in GM soy has been found in the blood of pregnant women and unborn fetuses.  Since the inception of this so-called identical twin to real food crop degenerative disease, obesity, and animal, insect diseases have increased.  For all the fancy talk one need only go to their website and see that they really have no clue what the potential hazards are of the food they are selling.  No data, reports, or studies are provided that gives any conclusive results concerning how their seed compare to the good wholesome, untampered with seeds we planted before. 
For instance, the information below was taken from their websites Q&A section:
“Why aren’t you running human clinical trials on GM crops?” they respond with “Aspects of the GM crop which are the same as the non-GM counterpart do not require safety assessment.” 3
 
The basis of their argument stems from the same supposition someone makes when they say, if it quacks like a duck, looks like a duck, acts like a duck, then it must be a duck.  This line of thinking is equivalent to saying just because someone else in the world may exist that looks like me, sound like me, and acts like me that they must be me.  Identical twins can’t exist in a Monsanto world because in essence the other is really not a separate individual but rather substantially equivalent.  They make far sweeping assessments concerning a product that they have admitted has not undergone any real testing, and because they have lied to the public there is absolutely no way to hold them responsible for any damage that occur as a direct result of their food.  For all the hype they present their logic defies science.  Everyone knows that when you make a copy of anything the quality deteriorates with every copy. Why in the world should we think this principle doesn’t apply to seeds?  They may not know what we are missing but the body knows when it is or isn’t getting sufficient nutrition, and many cravings in the future may prove to be a matter of overcompensating extra spoons as a means of getting the body the nutrients it need. 
The website seems to pride itself and base its credibility on its far reaching ability to hoodwink other nations into buying its lies.  Consider the following statement:
 
 
Substantial equivalence is a useful concept which is accepted and utilized by most regulatory agencies worldwide, including the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, Japanese Ministry of Health and Welfare, the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization, the World Health Organization, and the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development.4
           
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
One statement made is right on the money, substantial equivalence is an extremely useful concept to its wealthy benefactors.  However, to us as consumers, that statement is highly questionable.  GMO should be considered a crime against humanity, and its no wonder they want to hide it from the labels of the American people because they know if given the truth people would choose the natural.  As the song goes, there indeed is nothing like the real thing baby and no one knows it better then the body.  Don’t get me wrong I am not saying GMO’s are responsible for all of our health woes, but I am convinced they are not the answer.  Scripture makes it clear that we are not to plant our vineyard with diverse seeds, otherwise our garden will be defiled.5  The statistical look at the erosion of the soil and the combat of insecticide resistant bugs and weeds only proves that God’s word is truth and for sure these men are liars.
The greater question we as citizens have to ask ourselves is how can we trust the motives of a company who have gone through such great lengths to hide their product?  If you produced a product that was better then that which is on the market, provides superior benefit for the customer then all of its competition with absolutely no drawbacks what benefit would it be to hiding it?  This is where the web of secrecy concerning this biotech GMO food loses its efficacy.  If I produced something that had all the benefits they boast of having I would want all to know.  The fact that they are going through such great lengths to hide their product proves its inferiority to the natural.
Now we find ourselves recipients of the very same curse pronounced on mankind because of the same catalyst that got the ball rolling.  It’s what we are eating that is taking us out.
 
“Make the most of the Indian hemp seed, and sow it everywhere!”6
 
  Hemp has been categorized as a buzzword for Potheads, Mary Jane, Weed, and Reefer, yet few know that historically this plant was a staple plant for not only nutritional purposes but industrial as well.  It is also noted that there is no evidence that suggests that hemp was used by the founding fathers for the purposes of intoxication.  Hemp goes back as far as the Declaration of Independence in which hemp was used to produce the paper that pin the words that are responsible for our freedom from the tyranny of government.  The quote listed above was stated by President George Washington.  Ironically, this crop that was treasured by our founding fathers has now been outlawed because its usefulness to the public made it an enemy to big businesses pockets.
Amazing how a plant that has so many qualities have become a source of so much controversy, yet the only ones who stand to lose are those major companies that benefit off of both the front and back end of the dangerous alternatives that are pushed on the public in its place.  Below I have compiled a list of benefits of Hemp from numerous resources online.
 
Paper Production
According to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, one acre of hemp can produce 4 times more paper than one acre of trees! All types of paper products can be produced from hemp: newsprint, computer paper, stationary, cardboard, envelopes, toilet paper, even tampons.7
Clothing
Hemp fiber is 10 times stronger than cotton and can be used to make all types of clothing. Cotton grows only in warm climates and requires enormous amounts of water. Hemp requires little water and grows in all 50 states!
An area of land only 25 miles by 25 miles square (the size of a typical U.S. county) planted with hemp can produce enough fiber in one year to make 100 MILLION pair of denim jeans! 8
Weed Fighter
Hemp naturally repels weed growth and hemp has few insect enemies. Few insect enemies and no weed problems means hemp requires NO HERBICIDES and FEW or NO PESTICIDES!9
Ecological Advantages
Unlike many crops, hemp puts little strain on the soil and requires only moderate amounts of fertilizer. Less fertilizer use results in less runoff into waterways and groundwater; therefore, less water pollution. 10
Hemp can be used as a “mop crop” to clear impurities out of wastewater, such as sewage effluent, excessive phosphorus from chicken litter, or other unwanted substances or chemicals. Eco-technologist Dr. Keith Bolton from Southern Cross University in Lismore, New South Wales, Australia, is a leading researcher in this area. Hemp is being used to clean contaminants at the Chernobyl nuclear disaster site. This is known as phytoremediation – the process by the cleaning radiation as well as a variety of other toxins from the soil, water, and air. 11
Hemp, because of its height, dense foliage and its high planting density as a crop, is a very effective and long used method of killing tough weeds in farming by minimizing the pool of weed seeds of the soil. Using hemp this way can help farmers avoid the use of herbicides, to help gain organic certification and to gain the benefits of crop rotation per se. Due to its rapid, dense growth characteristics, in some jurisdictions hemp is considered a prohibited noxious weed, much like Scotch Broom. It has been used extensively to kill weeds in agriculture.
Biomass Potential
Hemp produces more biomass than any plant that can be grown in the U.S. This biomass can be converted to fuel in the form of clean-burning alcohol, or no-sulphur man-made coal. Hemp has more potential as a clean and renewable energy source than any crop on earth! It is estimated that if hemp was widely grown in the U.S. for fuel/energy, it could supply 100% of all U.S. energy needs! 12
Industrial Potential
Hemp for rope, lubricating oil, shoe material, and other materials was in such short supply during World War II that the U.S. government temporarily re-legalized hemp so U.S. farmers could grow it for the war effort. Hemp helped us win World War II! Hemp was a common crop that was grown legally in the U.S. for commercial use until 1937. OVER 30,000 KNOWN PRODUCTS CAN BE PRODUCED FROM HEMP! 13
Household Use
paint, varnish, detergent, ink and lubricating oil.14
Nutritional Benefits
Clinical studies indicate that hemp products reduce inflammation and improve circulation, factors of primary importance in the cure and prevention of many diseases.15
“Hemp milk is a good source of Omega 3 fatty acids, which have been found to be good for both the heart and brain,”16
A Natural Way to Control Blood Sugars17
Healthy Cholesterol Levels:
Losing Weight Naturally18
Our brain contains lot of the same essential fatty acids which are found in hemp. Therefore, hemp can help to improve your memory, and prevent diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Hemp seeds can also help to improve your moods, alleviate symptoms of depression and reduce anxiety and stress levels.19
Hemp can also help to clear up skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and dry skin.20
The high amount of fiber that is contained in hemp seeds can help to keep your digestive tract clean and healthy. As a result you can eliminate digestive disorders such as bloating and constipation.21
A healthy digestive system along with the antioxidants and plant sterols contained in hemp can help to reduce your risk of breast, colon and prostate cancers.22
Hemp seeds are also essential if you are diabetic, or are at risk for diabetes, as they can help to control your blood sugar levels.23
 
“Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?”24
 
It is no wonder after looking at just a few of the benefits of hemp why this crop has been targeted for destruction.  In the word Ezekiel 34 says the following:
And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the heathen any more. (Eze 34:29)
 

            After studying the many different benefits of Hemp and its

 ability to grow anywhere it would not surprise me if the plant 

mentioned here in Ezekiel is the plant of choice. 

What I have discovered through research is the greatest danger Hemp causes is to the pockets of the ten percent of the wealthy who would stand to lose the foothold they have in their chemically unsafe cancer causing alternative products that are responsible for the health hazard of countless thousands of Americans.  I find it interesting that Hemp could be the answer to two of the diseases that are the top killers in our nation, heart disease and diabetes, yet that aspect of the plant is being ignored. 
So why are there no government agents arresting those growing poppy seed since it can be used for producing opium?   This is the reasoning behind why hemp is outlawed, on the basis of its potential for becoming marijuana?  I submit to you that poppy seed poses little threat to the financial pockets of the powerful group of people that would be affected by the admission of hemp in the American economy.  It is insane that there is one marijuana arrest every 42 seconds in the U.S.25 yet the 5th leading cause of death in this nation is caused by doctors,26 yet how many people do you know who died from smoking weed?  Marijuana is less addictive then nicotine, cocaine, heroine, and even caffeine not to mention there are fewer deaths caused by marijuana users then alcoholics.27 
So why is there an all out assault on hemp?  Even cigarettes are responsible for contributing to more degenerative diseases then marijuana. Apparently, only the Great men of the earth can capitalize from the sell of drugs.   This valuable resource would empower the people and certainly they can’t have that.  The scary part of it all is we see commercials consistently that are for anti-depressants that have suicidal side effects and yet I can’t think of one person who has attempted suicide after smoking weed?  Interesting?  Can’t think of anyone in the media who attributed homicidal acts to marijuana?  Yet many legal drugs, and alcohol has been attributed to such acts of violence. 
If the FDA is looking out for our interest, then they’re doing a poor job of convincing me of that.  The two reasons why I have to focus on the use of marijuana as an example in the U.S. is because it is the only type of Hemp that most people can relate to either by personal experience or they know someone who uses or used it.  It is focused on so much that I never knew there could be another use other then as a euphoric agent for getting high.  Secondly, it is compelling that even in it’s allegedly “dangerous form” it is highly regarded in the medical industry to cause more good than harm. 
I want to make one thing clear in doing this expose on Hemp, I am in no way an advocate for the use of any agent that alters your state of mind.  However, I am not against the industrial and nutritional use of Hemp which is beneficial for our body.  No more then I am against poppy seed being used on my burger although it has the same potential of becoming opium. 
Scripture makes it clear that we are not called to be drunk, but filled with the Holy Spirit.28  Most things in this country that are legal can be abused.  A great example of that is alcohol.  Statistically, there are more deaths from alcohol dependency then marijuana dependency so to say that marijuana is dangerous has yet to be proven.
 
“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit… unnatural?”29
 
We as a people are being deprived of one of the herb yielding seed after its kind that was made available freely by our Father for us to eat.  When he completed day three he said it was good.  So if our Creator said it was good, who are we to say otherwise?  We are being told it’s a narcotic, however, there are many species of hemp that does not contain the hormone THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or it does the dosage is so low that it would be impossible to get high from.  So knowing that it is possible to suppress that hormone from growing and yet still benefit physically, economically, and environmentally why would we be deprived of this resource?  The spiritual principle in this whole thing is this, the love of money is the root of all sorts of evil.30  There is no reasonable explanation for depriving us of one of the herb yielding seed that was provided to us by our Heavenly Father since Genesis.  The mere fact that a few people would like to pervert the purpose of Elohim in providing us this rich resource is a choice that Yah has allowed.  Exactly how far should our policing people extend?  Those who choose to abuse this resource do so to their own demise.  However, people abuse food everyday to their own demise yet we don’t outlaw eating.  As we discussed earlier there are something’s that are being sold as food that should be outlawed, yet they are allowed.   
Make no mistake I am in no way an advocate for using hemp for the purpose of substance abuse.  I am also not for using food for such purposes yet, obesity is becoming a wide spread epidemic in this nation.  One that is not going to be conquered by banning it, but only through education and divine inspiration can one conquer the physical, spiritual, and emotional demons they face.  Government sanctions cannot lead to the health of our nation or our economy it is only through a return to our Creator can people find lasting answers with no side effects only benefits.
1 (1Ti 6:10)  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
 
2 (Hos 4:6)  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.
 
5 Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with divers seeds: lest the fruit of thy seed which thou hast sown, and the fruit of thy vineyard, be defiled. (Deu 22:9)

28 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;
(Eph 5:18)
30 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
(1Ti 6:10)
 
 
 
A Hebrew Moment
Yood
Yood is the tenth character of the Hebrew Alephbet and the picture is pretty self explanatory.  It is the picture of an arm and hand.  Its functional meaning is to make, throw, or work. 
 
Ya-chol
Capable – Able
 This weeks word I is Ya-Chol which means capable or able.  The second character in this word is kaf which is the picture of an open palm.  It means to cover because practically before umbrellas were invented the physical part of the body that was used to protect you from rain or from the Sun would be your hand.  The last character is lamed which is the same as authority as a shepherds staff represents his authority. So together the word reveals the work the covers the shepherd. Because of the work of the shepherd we can do all things through his authority. Phil. 4:13
