Sample text

Eh-yeh Asher Eh-yeh When Moses asks God to identify GodSelf (Exodus 3:13–14) this is the name with which God replies. It is commonly ­translated as, “I Am That I Am,” implying Eternity. “I Was. I Am. ” “I Am” is the God-Presence. YHWH Since the original Hebrew has no vowels, we can only speculate on the pronunciation. The rules of Hebrew grammar suggest the pronunciation, Ya’ ha’veh. Objective scholarship most often pronounces and writes the name Yahweh. A modern religious community chooses the pronunciation, Jehovah.

The notion of God Within may lead some to believe that human beings are God. It is only in this time of evolving human consciousness that we can move beyond the ego-identification that “I” could be God, that Anochi-I might mean that I Am God. Instead, we know that Anochi, I-Source is the supernatural, transcendent God. We know that God dwells within us as the immanent God, the God who is as close and as intimate as our very breath, but who maintains the singularity and uniqueness of the Divine Entity, the sole GodHead.

Do not be fooled into looking anywhere else or into following or worshipping any false gods or their images. Be true and loyal to YHWH, for YHWH is fully authorized by Me and fully represents Me. And— continuing with the giving of the commandments—these are the laws that, in My Name, YHWH is giving you to follow and observe. ” Anochi could not be more clear or precise—or vehement—in giving YHWH the full imprimatur to act as God on Earth. Another example of a well-known and compelling Torah text is the Jewish declaration of faith.
