Meet El shadday, I am omnipotent God of many breasts.
Wednesday, February 13, 2002
El (used for God and His power) = almighty or omnipotence.
Shadday or shaddai is a plural word from shad and shad in the singular form refers to a womans breast.
"I, even I, am omnipotent God of many breasts."
El Shaddai is an anthropomorphic title about fruitfulness and productivity, GEN 49:25.
El Shaddai - God is seen as the Infinite Mother, pouring forth blessings from the Breasts above to the womb below.
MAL 3:10 "Test Me now in this," says the Lord of hosts, "if I will not open for you the windows of heaven, and pour out for you a blessing until it overflows."
El shaddai, the God of many breasts - the righteous and loving God Jehovah cares for us as a mother cares for a newborn child.
shad = breast. In the same way that a mothers breast is "all-sufficient" for her newborns nourishment, God is "all-sufficient" for His people.
El (Almighty God) + Shaddai (All-sufficiency) = "the Almighty God who pours out sustenance and blessing."
PHI 4:19 And my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
The nursing relationship contains a symbolism that resonates throughout the Old and New Testaments.
A fruitful womb [being born-again] and abundant milk [feeding of divine blessing] symbolize the favor of the Lord and prosperity.
1CO 3:1 And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to babes in Christ.
1CO 3:2 I gave you milk to drink, not solid food; for you were not yet able to receive it. Indeed, even now you are not yet able,
1PE 2:1 Therefore, putting aside all malice and all guile and hypocrisy and envy and all slander,
1PE 2:2-3 like newborn babes, long for the pure milk of the word, that by it you may grow in respect to salvation, if you have tasted the graciousness of the Lord.
1CO 8:1 Knowledge makes arrogant, but love edifies.
ISA 49:15 "Can a woman forget her nursing child, And have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, but I will not forget you."
GEN 49:25 - fruitfulness. EXO 29:27 - love and affection. SOS 1:13 - sweetness and satisfaction. SOS 4:5 - sufficiency, devotion; activity of love.
ISA 60:16 - best and richest treasures. ISA 66:11 - abundant blessings. REV 15:6 - loyalty, love and devotion.
The adjustment to the justice of God through the daily function of P.M.A. of Bible doctrine liberates divine justice to provide maximum blessing for a mature believer.
JOB 23:12 "I have not departed from the command of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth to be more important than my necessary daily food."
MAT 4:4 It is written, "Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."
In thirteen years, Abrams spiritual momentum has turned him all the way from the whirlwind of evil, to supergrace, his present status.
Mans extremity is Gods opportunity.
The justice of God is now ready to provide for Abram sexual prosperity, but Abram is incapable of sex.
The solution is going to be a semi-emasculation, in a most dramatic way.
Abram is now at the place where he appreciates the source of blessings, TLJC, but its impossible for him to have the blessing he desired, an heir from Sarai.
When you get to the place where you have totally blown it, can you still have the blessing?
Not a physical bodily resurrection, of the entire body, just the resuscitation of the sexual apparatus.
Walk - Hithpael imperative - halak = a command to continue advancing under My supervision.
Now that Abram is qualified for the blessing, all he can do is be occupied with the source of the blessing, the blessing is a hopeless situation.
