Hayah and Chata’ah

I was researching one day recently and came across a blog that introduced me to the Hebrew name for God which is Hayah. It means God, I am that I am. http://alexanderbackman.com/hayah_code.htm Here is a link to the article which I found interesting. Finding this made me remember the song Yeha Noha that I mentioned in a couple other posts. I said it was a song of love to me from Jesus. Because the word hayah can be read in both directions I was led to take Yeha Noha and write it backwards to see what I could come up with. It is, ahey ahon. I looked up these words to see if they are Hebrew. The first part of ahey is “ah” which means God, the one who sees. The second part is”ey” which means to see. The word ahon means peace, intimacy. So, I found out that this song is really about God and having peace and intimacy with Him. It’s being able “to see” God, the one who sees. I read in a book called Not By Sight by Jon Bloom that “to see” is not with our physical eyes but with our heart. When we can “see” with our heart we will feel God.  We can experience Him. It is actually in John Piper’s forward to the book that speaks of this. You can find it on Amazon.

While I was looking this up I came across something else really interesting. I found the Hebrew word for sin which is chata’ah. What it means is being absent, forgetting yourself, not being fully aware. I read this article, https://www.facebook.com/notes/earth-we-are-one/the-original-hebrew-word-for-sin-has-been-wrongly-translated-its-true-meaning-wi/312081935474801/

I was amazed at what was said that sin is any action of unconsciousness. So, when we aren’t fully present in the moment we are sinning. And what that means is, is we aren’t fully experiencing God the way He intended. In the garden before the Fall, they had no division from God and they were always in His presence. This is what we have to strive for. Satan has devised many ways for us to forget God but it is up to us to be aware of God.

Satan has blinded us to the Truth! 1 John 5:19,  We know that we are of God, and that the whole world lies in the power of the evil one.  2 Corinthians 4:4, among them the god of this world [Satan] has blinded the minds of the unbelieving to prevent them from seeing the illuminating light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. Here is a paragraph from the link above,

Now, if you don’t understand the real meaning of sin, you are bound to misinterpret the whole statement and Jesus will look too harsh, too violent. Saying, “If you right eye causes you to sin, take it out and throw it away,” does not look like his statement. A man of profound love and compassion, he cannot say this, he cannot be so violent. But this is how Christians have interpreted him.

What he means is this: Whatsoever causes you to forget yourself, Even if it is your right eye… That is just to emphasize the fact. It is simply a way of talking, an emphasis: “If your right eye causes you to forget yourself, then take it out and throw it away.” He is not saying anything that has to be taken literally; it is a metaphor. He is saying that it is better to be blind than to be forgetful of yourself, because the blind man who remembers himself is not blind, he has the real eye. But if a man who has eyes forgets himself, what is the use of having eyes? He cannot see even himself; what ELSE can he see?

I am still deciphering all this in my mind. I wanted to get it all down so I could look at it and see if a meaning came to me. I feel my brain hurting from trying to comprehend all this. I also interpret this word for sin as forgetting God, that is the sin. I wrote a poem about that here  If Satan can get us so distracted with things of this world we forget ourselves and if we forget ourselves how can we perceive God? This is why God says, Be still and know that I am God. Psalms 46:10

God sees us and wants us to see Him in everything. He wants communion with us in our every moment. We need to “see” Him in our hearts to experience Him. We do that by staying in the Word- Jesus.  Jesus said whoever sees Him, sees the Father. John 12 :45, And whoever sees Me sees the One who sent Me.

In conclusion, if you want to “see” God spend time reading and learning about Jesus. Go on research excavations and see where the Holy Spirit leads you. I know from experience it is the most exciting adventure I have ever been on! And if I stop, like I have before, life has no meaning or purpose. I look for God as He looks for me.


Yeha Noha

The title of this post is actually the name of a song by Sacred Spirit. It’s a Native American chant sung by Navajo  Kee Chee Jake. This song has words of healing and cleansing in it sung in his Navajo language.  That’s exactly what has happened to me from listening to the song! I have something really amazing to share and it has to do with my post, My Dream: To Lie Down In Green Pastures. By the way Navajo means great plain, like what I saw in my dream.

My dream was about being in heaven with Jesus in a big grassy field with other people around. I had thought of the Psalm by David talking about green pastures, God has revealed to me what I actually saw and I am astounded! This message is for everyone who is born again! It’s assurance of the new earth to come and that we will have a place in it. I am so excited about what I experienced!

I know I was led to listen to this song because I was looking for the Gregorian chant music to start with and found this song. I liked it right away, but didn’t think much about it. The same day I was reading a post from As He Is….So Are We and he suggested to think of a soundtrack for your life story.https://1john417.wordpress.com/2015/05/05/what-is-the-soundtrack-of-your-story/ Since I had been listening to this song and the Gregorian chants I thought this would suit me good. Little did I know it really would become the soundtrack of my life! Then I received a comment on my dream post giving me an interpretation of the dream. I read this interpretation last Friday night before going to bed. Since I had the song on my mp3 player I decided to listen to it while going to sleep. I started listening and the words from the interpretation of my dream were flowing into my mind as they were being said by Jesus. I felt His presence with me and it felt just like in my dream. My heart melted and I had tears streaming down my face. I knew what had been blocking me from Jesus’ love, ME. It’s ME who puts a wall up and isolates myself, even from Jesus. It’s not everyone leaving me, it’s I HAVE LEFT THEM! I couldn’t sleep, I laid there crying and listening to this song for 5 hours or more basking in the presence of Jesus! I didn’t want to leave!

Saturday night I couldn’t wait to do the same thing again, be with Jesus through this music. I already felt cleansed and renewed, but I crave being with Him so I listened to the music again and this time God spoke to me. In my half awake state the chant became the English words: Shannon will not die, Shannon’s always on time. The word arrive derci was also in my mind before these phrases. I made sure I would remember these words so I could look them up Sunday morning.

I found the Biblical meaning of Shannon to mean a plain, flat pasture. (http://www.biblical-baby-names.com/meaning-of-shannon.html) It then gives a Biblical context of the plain of Sharon. I had never heard of such a place but found out that it’s along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.


Then I found some interesting information from a Bible Study website:http://www.keyway.ca/htm2002/20020729.htm , about how this plain of Sharon is mentioned in the book of Isaiah to be the place where believers will be with Jesus in the New Earth.  As it’s described in Isaiah, it will be lush green grass and everything will be peaceful. Just as I experienced in my dream! Highway

Prophesy clearly describes Sharon at a future time when it will again include secure, peaceful pastures:

“I will bring forth descendants from Jacob, and from Judah inheritors of My mountains; My chosen shall inherit it, and My servants shall dwell there. Sharon shall become a pasture for flocks, and the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down, for my people who have sought Me” (Isaiah 65:9-10 RSV)

This is from the Bible Study link above.


It has been made REAL to me that God does have a place for us in the future! Another song on my player , Never Let Go, woke me up with  the words: There is a light for the heart that holds on. Paul’s words came to my mind, fight the good fight.


I got a revelation about the fight! It doesn’t have to do with living, the fight is fighting to keep Jesus in our conscience!  It’s a GOOD fight because at the end we get to be with Jesus and that is a place where I want to be!

The movie I recently watched The Lake House, led me to Carlo Carretto, he is a great spiritual writer, I suggest looking him up and reading his quotes. He said he figured out that all God wants is our prayer and love! When we are able to really connect with God through our love of Jesus it is truly a joy unspeakable! I have been there for 2 days now and can’t stop and don’t want to!

That last word arrive derci, it means farewell until we meet again.  I think Jesus was telling me I will be in this place with Him in my future. I am so excited and so looking forward to that day!

Here is a link to the song if you are interested, it’s awesome! This song is heaven on earth to me! When we receive Jesus’ love we can then give it to others. Being afraid to love keeps us from fully experiencing love and life! And yes sometimes it hurts, but that’s how you know it’s REAL.
