The New Relationship
“18 And it shall be at that day, saith YHWH, that thou shalt call Me Ishi, and shalt call Me no more Baali.
19 For I will take away the names of the Baalim out of her mouth, and they shall no more be mentioned by their name.”
Baal – בעל
nm. Lord, owner, possessor; nm. Husband, spouse
“From this day, no longer will Man walk a step in front of Woman, but the two will go forward side-by-side, without recrimination, without looking back!”
Ben Ammi, the Anointed, Marriage of the Lamb, August 7, 2000
First, giving all praise and honor to Yah YAHWAH Most High, I greet you all in peace and love!
In this season of Unity Day, which is celebrated annually within the Dimona based Hebrew Yisraelite community in Yisrael, I had a conversation with my wife concerning the evolution of male/female relationships. I reminded her of the above quotations and she in turn, informed me that most Sisters are not aware of the implications of these verses, and that they should be taught from the beamer/podium.
Well, I decided to once again remind Sisters and Brothers of the importance of these New Covenant declarations. They mark very significant changes in not only Man/Woman relations, but also with our Creator!
I extracted the definition of the Hebrew word בעל from the Babylon dictionary and it shows that our relationship as a people with Yah YAHWAH was one of servant/Master, like that of woman/man in that season. The Creator was a Lord/Husband, and so were men. We as a people, like women, were possessions after we came out of Egypt.
“31 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; forasmuch as they broke My covenant, although I was a lord over them, saith YHWH.
Hosea above, however, speaks of a time when this relationship would change, and the names of all Baalim, even that of YHWH, would be removed from our mouths and a new relationship formed. This is reflected in the verse before that quoted above from Yeremiah;
“30 Behold, the days come, saith YHWH, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel, and with the house of Judah;”
Change started at the top, with the Most High declaring that our relationship with Him was now more personal, like that of a man with his woman. Therefore, if the Most High does not want to be viewed in the role of a possessor/husband, men are not to be viewed any longer in those roles either! Sister no longer have “Lords”; they are now to have a relationship with their Man.
Just as we as a people are not the same when it comes to our relationship with our Creator, so too has the relationship between Brothers and Sisters shifted. As Abba Ben Ammi said, now we must walk side-by-side in equality. Our roles are not the same, but their values are.
Brothers still have the last word in the family, but Sisters certainly have the obligation to express themselves and must be given greater leeway in the expression of their roles as the woman of the house. We are seizing the power to define new man/woman relationships in this ascended realm that are based on a higher understanding of the divine nature of male and female. We have out grown those old standards and must establish new ones to meet the challenges we are encountering on this elevated level.
“1 And seven women shall take hold of one man in that day, saying: 'We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel; only let us be called by thy name; take thou away our reproach.'”
I have pointed out on several occasions that this scripture is not about a man having seven wives, but rather is concerned with 7 women collectively stating their position relative to one man! They are not requiring of him to provide for their material needs, but they are collectively asking to be called by his name. His consenting to their request would thereby remove what they viewed as their reproach.
I said in my book, “At about the Time of the End”, that the name Adam applied to both male and female, man and woman. When the woman was first brought onto the man, he named her as a reflection of himself; he saw himself in her. It was only after their eyes were opened and they were chastised by the Most High, that he gave her another name, one that was not directly reflective of him; he no longer saw himself in her.
We have been struggling to return to this Genesis starting point, and the ceremony 15 years ago was to have marked our arrival back there. What the women in Isaiah were seeking was a return to that closeness that was more than physical, a closeness whose value they placed ahead of material needs. They saw something in this one man that caused them to feel that he would give them an opportunity to prove themselves worthy of returning to that closeness, that he would be compassionate, understanding and appreciative. He would be just as willing to admit his faults and mistakes and seek their forgiveness for not being the man he could have been.
This mutual submission to Truth is what is required to take our Unity to the next level. Our mutual admission of our need for one another is our collective strength; this is the strength that will carry us thru all adversity and overcome all obstacles that lie before us.
“27 And God created Adam in His own image, in the image of God created He him; male and female created He them.”
“23 And Adam said: 'This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.'”
Behold, the new Adam!
