About 10 years ago the Lord told me "learn Hebrew". All of a sudden I had a tremendous urge to learn the language. It became a passion for me.
Along the way I discovered that Hebrew is made from ancient pictograms where every letter is actually a word.
My study began when a lady asked me what "eden" meant. She had heard of my studying and thought I might provide some insight for her.
Well I saw that the first letter "ayin" was the Hebrew word for "eye". This got me going....
So I contacted the lady and told her that the letters meant "to see the door to life"
I have taken this farther over the years. I even went on a messianic TV show to do a series on the subject!
Here is a little primer...
The word for man is "ish"
it is written as איש
This means..."the power to work and eat"
Now, the word for fire is "esh"
It is written as.. אש
Notice the youd for work is missing....this can be rendered "the power to eat (consume)
Now here is a lesson....
The word for woman is "isha" and this is written as.. אשה
Notice it is the feminine form of "fire"...as much as it is of "man"
So a woman is as fire to a man...his burning passion. Playing with fire...etc...
