Patriarchinity Chapter 8. Given: Father, Son, Solve for X

Patriarchinity Chapter 8
Given: Father, Son, Solve for X

How can we understand Elohim? Shaul/Pallu tells us:

Romiyah/Romans 1:20
20 For the invisible things coming from Him from the
creation of the world are clearly seen, being
understood by the things of creation, even His eternal
power and Divine nature; so that they are without

In fact, Yehoshua has told us how we must be:

Mattityahu/Matthew 18:2-3
2 And Yehoshua called a little child to Him, and set him in
the midst of them,
3 And said, “Truly I say to you, Except you turn to Me, and
then become as little teachable children, you shall not
enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.
4 Whoever therefore shall humble himself as this little
child, the same is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.”

What very basic concept does a child comprehend from a very early age and onward? The concept of a family: daddy, momma, and a child and or children. When one of the members of the family is missing, the child is sure to notice that something is terribly wrong. All around in society we see the trouble. When daddy is missing, the boys run wild or become effeminate, and the girls less likely to remain pure and might default to becoming masculine. When momma is missing, the children withdraw, become unstable, or lash out because they lack the comfort and nurturing that only a momma can give.

What did Yehoshua say to comfort His disciples?
Yochanan/John 14:18
18 “I will not leave you as orphans: I will come to you
after a little while.”

Now, when a child has no father, but still has a mother, he is considered to be a fatherless child, but not an orphan. When a child has no mother, but a father, he is considered to be a motherless child, but not an orphan. But when a child is void of or abandoned by both parents, he is considered to be an orphan. Yehoshua said that is not how he would leave us --as orphans. Where is Yehoshua now? At the right hand of the Father (Yochanan/John 14:28, Maaseh SchlichimActs 2:33). Where is YHWH? In Heaven (Mattityahu 6:9). Who did He promise to send to dwell in us? The Ruach HaQodesh, Yehoshua’s Mother. And as a mother would operate, She represents the direction and will of the Father to us as well. Yes, after the trials and tribulations of this world, Yehoshua will come to us, but in the mean time, He has sent the Ruach HaQodesh to be His and His Father’s Proxy. To keep us rightly balanced, however, we are to pray directly to Father YHWH (Mattityahu 6:9).

YHWH, knowing our needs and our capacity to understand, Elohim is revealed to us by Elohim through familial terms: YHWH the Father, Yehoshua the Son. The Ruach HaQodesh, is a little harder to see, She’s partially concealed, but that is true to Hebraic culture: a wife is covered with a head covering to show that she is under the covering and authority of her husband. A humble child, acknowledges his momma and daddy. A rebellious child pits one parent against another or says to one “I don’t need you.” We must be as little teachable children.

Yochanan/John 7:38-39
38 “He that believes on Me, as the Scriptures as a Whole
have said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living waters.”
39 And this He spoke of the Ruach, which they that
believe on Him would receive: for the Ruach HaQodesh
was not yet given; because Yehoshua was not yet esteemed.

As believers, we are to have the fruits of the Ruach HaQodesh born through us. Birthing of course is a feminine action. What comes before the birthing? The water breaks. Of course in this passage, it isn’t in the literal pashat sense, but rather it is in the drash or allegorical sense of how the Ruach HaQodesh spiritually bears her spiritual fruit through us!

In Beresheeth/Genesis 1: 26-27 it says:
26 And Elohim said, “Let Us make man in Our image,
after Our likeness:
and let them have dominion over the
fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the
cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping
thing that creeps upon the earth.”
27 So the Word of Elohim
created man in His own
image, in the image of Elohim He created him; male and
He created them.

In the image of Elohim he made man, male and female he made them. Don’t miss that! It is one continuous thought. Elohim unavoidably emphasizes that the image of Elohim (plural) consists of both male and female. So we have Father, Son, and by implication, Mother (the Ruach HaQodesh), so obviously She is the feminine Being of Elohim since YHWH and Yehoshua are the masculine Beings of Elohim. Remember, Elohim said that it was not good that Adahm be alone. Where did He get that standard come from? From Himself. The image of Elohim: Father, Mother, Son. Adahm did not have a son until he first had Chawa.

Yehoshua said in Yochanan/John 3:6
“That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which
is born of the Ruach is Ruach.”

Those who are born of the Ruach are Yehoshua’s sisters and brothers by (re)birth. Those who are not born of the Ruach HaQodesh are none of Yehoshua’s brothers or sisters. What kind of action is birthing? Feminine.

Romiyah/Romans 8:16-17
16 The Ruach bears witness with our ruach, that we
are children of YHWH:
17 And if children, then heirs; heirs of YHWH, and joint heirs
with Moshiach; so that since we suffer with Him, we
will also be esteemed together.

The only way that Sha’ul can conclude we are then children of YHWH, is because the Ruach HaQodesh is echad with YHWH the Father and that the Ruach HaQodesh has re-birthed believers. So in that sense we have the same Mother as Yehoshua (as he was initially derived from Her, not reborn through Her). With that in mind, consider the following exchange:

Mattityhau/Matthew 12:47, 50
47 Then one said to Him, “See, Your mother and Your
brothers stand outside, desiring to speak with You.”

50 [Yehoshua speaking] "For whoever shall do the will of My Father Who is in the
, the same is My brother, and sister, and Mother .”

So when Mattityahu 12:50 is read together with Romiyah 8:16-17, then it is clear that obedient born-again believers (who consist of both males and females) are the ones doing the will of the Father YHWH, so they would be Yehoshua’s brothers and sisters, because obedient believers are re-born through the same Mother: the Ruach HaQodesh. Miriam the wife of Yoseph is also a sister; for she, being a born-again believer has the same Spiritual Mother as other born-again believers. Yoseph’s wife should be referred as “Sister Miriam”, not “Mother Mary.” Yehoshua adds the category of sister to clarify that born again believers in general are to be counted as brothers and sisters, distinct from the One who does the spiritual re-birthing of believers-- further confirmation that Ruach HaQodesh is Yehoshua’s true Mother. The Ruach HaQodesh does the will of the Heavenly Father and is clearly super-ordinate over male and female believers.

On a personal level, isn’t that how we intuitively know it should be?
