In our teaching on 'Understanding The Language of Yeshua', we highlighted that his language was in fact Hebrew, not Greek or even Aramaic.
Some may see the language of Yeshua as merely 'cosmetic' detail that doesn't really make a difference to anything of practical use. I beg to differ, however, on many levels - some of which we'll discuss at a later time.
I believe it is important to recognise that significant elements of our modern-day Western culture are not founded on 'God's best for us' as mandated in His Word.
These 'rogue' principles are so interwoven into our society that it is almost impossible for us to be truly free of them - they are truly a part of our institutional framework. At times we are not even aware of them, we just 'take them for granted', as they don't have a noticeable impact on our everyday lives.
For example, have you ever considered something as basic, simple and literally 'every day' as the names of our days and months?
Take a quick look below at what our 'days' are founded upon...
In contrast, the Hebrew days have no time for Paganism and foreign gods in any form. God definitely wanted it kept simple:
"And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day"
~ Genesis 1: 5b
Now take a look at the names of our months...
Our Western month-naming system also reflects our cultural roots deep in foreign deities:
The naming of our days and months is unlikley to change.
Indeed, these names don’t really affect our daily living. BUT, it is important to recognise that the culture in which we live has its roots deep in things which are not born of the God of Israel.
If we are truly pursuing the authentic God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob – the God of Israel and the God of Messiah, Yeshua, then surely we need to be different?
We need to be immersed in a Biblical counter-culture. Yes, radical - literally ‘back to our roots’ in His plan and blueprint for our lives.
