WHY SOME WORDS OCCUR ONLY ONCE
IN THE BIBLE.
Number in Scripture.
Words that occur only once
Words that occur only once
are offen instructive; they are called by the Greek drraE
(hapax legomena)We give a few examples in detail.
That means Yahweh is directing your attention to it!
It is His number. One. Meaning notice it, Take another look. And understand He is pointing something out to you.
kptikos- (kritikos) " (critic)"
This is the origin of our word "critic."
The Greek word is kritikos and "critic" is merely the English spelling of the Greek word, which is transliterated. It means able to judgeor skilled in judging;
and then , simple a judge,but always with the idea of his ability to judge.
kptikos appears only in Hebrews iv. 12, where it is translated " a discerner,"
Heb 4:12 For the word of Yahweh is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
The whole passage relates both to the written Word,which
is a sword ( Eph.vi.17 ): and to the living Word
who has a sword.
The structure of the two verses distinuishes between Yah
and his word:-
A/ 12-. Yah it is whose Word is so wonderful.
B/-12-. What his word IS ( Living, powerful and a harp sword).
C/-12-. What his word DOES ( piercing and dividing asunder, etc,).
B/-12-. What his word IS ( a skilled judge).
A/-13- Yah who is imniscient.
Here we have in A and A, Yah the omniscient one; and
in B, C and B we have his word. And we learn that the
Word of Yah is a judge now, so wonderful that it distin-
guished between the thoughts and the intentions of the heart and
The Master Himself bares wittness that the same Word will
be our judge there after---John xii.48, "He that rejecteth
me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him
the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in
the last day."
What a soleomn truth, And how much more soleomn, when
man now dares to take this one word "critic"or " Judge,"
Which Yah has thus , by His only once using it, appropriated to
His Word, and applied it to himself, And what is it that man
is going to judge? Why the every word of Yah! thus mak-
ing himself the judge of that Word which is to judge him! If
the word kritikos were of frequent occurrence, and used of
various things or persons, man might perhaps be led to look
on himself as a judge of some one of them. But Yah has
used it only once, and He has thus confined it to one thing---
His Word. Therefore it is a daring presumpion for man to
transfer the word to himself. Not only does man do this,
but he calls his work " higher Criticism."
Now there is a
criticism which is lawful, because it judges not Yah's Word,
but man's work as to the manuscripts; this is called Textual
Criticism , which is quite different thing. But this " Higher
criticism, is nothing but human reasoning;It is nothing more
than the imagination of man's heart---those very thoughts and
intentions which the Word itslef judges!
What confusion! What perversion! and what folly! for the
futher man's criticsm departs from the domain of evidence
and enters on the sphere of reason, the " higher" he calls it!
That is to say, the less like a skilled judge he acts, the higher
he exalts his judgement! Poor man! Oh that you would
submit yourself to this Word For it must either judge you
now in this day of grace, and give you conviction of sin; or
it will be your judge in the last day,when every mouth will
be stopped, and you will be " speechless" and " without
My ezample of Textual
Mt 1:23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, Yahweh with us.
I found, Emmanuel Appears only in Matt. That's Christ's name "Enmanuel" and I think the Holy spirit is point it out!
means Yahweh with us!
Matt 1: 21
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Yahushua: for he shall save his people from their sins.
22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of Yahweh by the prophet, saying,
23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, Yahweh with us.
When Mary was pregnant with the Son of Yahweh, Joseph was told to give her child a name that meant: "he [Yahweh] shall save his people." (Matthew 1:21) The greek name "Iesus" in english is "Jesus" But comes from the name Zeus A false god. (Isis and Iesus, Zeus and Iesus) are all one and the same themes.)
Yahshua in Strong's Concordance is #3091 which is defined as coming from #3068 - Yahweh, and from #3467 - yasha, which means "to save.(6) " Together Yahweh and yasha, or Yahshua, means 'Yahweh saves". If he has his father's name, and he does; then "Yahweh" is the Highest name.
And that I think is why they hated him enought to kill him, because of his name! "Yahweh saves".
And Why the evil scribes changed it in the word to Iesus a name of a false god? To Hide the real name, and have a false name so satan could recieve worship! He'd also gave a false Image of himself using the likeness of Ashu-nasir- pal!
Christ Told us to bewared the scribes! That was His Doctrine!
Mr 12:38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
Mr 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.
Yahshua knew the Scribes were Tares! Did you?
Anyway that my thought's on it. :)
