The Creation — Son Connection

One of the most powerful words in the Hebrew language, in God’s Bible, is the bara, which in English means the creation. God gave us the word bara to show us the power of the creation, and what the creation eventually leads to. Bara, of course, is the second word of the Bible, which shows us the importance of the word. “In the beginning, created God...”

As we know, the Hebrew has roots sounds; the roots sound, obviously, we are discussing is the bar. When we add the "a" to the bar, we get bara, and when we added the letter k to the bara, we get barak, the blessing, the blessing of the creation. In Genesis 1, God says that the creation is good in a number of places; creation, therefore, is a blessing. Of course, the creation is good because He created life on planet Earth for us. God gave us everything we needed, or could want, food, clothing, and shelter, as a blessing. As part of the creation, of course, God formed man from the clay of earth. And, it is a blessing, in spite of man’s mistakes, the ultimate result of God’s blessing is life.

We add “ith” to bara, and we get berith. God made a covenant with us by the very creation that gives us life, that He would be Our Father in Heaven, and that he would show us the way of life. So, he made a covenant, an intrinsic creation – covenant by the very root sound of the bara with the “ith,” berith. God created a covenant; the creation is a covenant and a blessing.

Out of the bara, we get baraq, which uses a “q” instead of the “k” of barak. Baraq is light. God said, “Let there be light.” And, of course, light is more than just sunlight, moonlight, starlight and the lights from streetlamps. It is also the light in our minds. God’s creation enlightened us; we know that God is love from the creation.

When we had the suffix, “zillay,” to the bar, we get strength and power. The creation is powerful because the most powerful Supreme Being created it. The creation has intrinsic power, because when somebody creates some-thing, the character of the creator envelops the creation.

A further root sound from bar is bor, which means cleanliness or purity. The intrinsic nature of the creation from God’s character gives us a sense of cleanness, of purity and goodness. Through God, the creation in its normal sense cleanses itself. For example, waste products from animals become fertilizer, and volcanic action, resulting in lava also results in an enhanced soil to produce better crops. God created the planet in such a manner that it keeps itself clean. He also cleans mankind from evil.

All the manifestations of bara: the creation, blessing, covenant, light, strength, and cleanliness leads us to the family of sound’s base, the bar meaning the Son.

Heb. 9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Note the word cleansed in the verse, which relates to Jesus’ sacrifice, which purified us from all sin. The powerful relation between bara, and bar, give us salvation. As we build a powerful group of root sounds from bara, the creation, to bar, the son, we have a linguistic trail to God’s only begotten son.

God’s only begotten Son is the ultimate reason for and the result of the creation.

The entire family of the root sound of bara completes our understanding of the nature of God’s only begotten Son. Everything in the creation, everything in the bar and bara leads us to God’s only begotten Son, which leads us to salvation eventually.

The creation has to do with Our Father in Heaven’s Son.

Col. 1:16 For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things have been created through Him and for Him.

God created, bara, all things, for his Son. We must note here that most translators translate the dia as through because of their belief in the Trinity. However, dia can also be translated as because of and on account of, which fits this context better, for we understand the barabar relationship, that is, the creation – son relationship. A better translation would be, “all things have been created, on account of him and for him.” That is the creation. Everything in the creation leads to the Son. God had His Son in mind before the beginning of the creation and made everything for him when the time was right, that is, when he was born. When we understand this concept, we see that God made a perfect, wonderful and good creation because it was for his Son. Of course, we are also recipients of this magnificent creation and are blessed by it and its intrinsic covenant, berith.

2Cor. 5:17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.

The bar, the Son, gives us the opportunity to be in him and become a new creation or creature. The bar leads us back to the bara.

Gal. 4:19 My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you—

Naturally, by God’s forming Christ in us means He forged His language in us until we have the entire mind of Christ. God enables us, therefore, to speak His Word, to live by it, to have it as our body language, which we demonstrate by our godly deeds. This is the blessing; this is the creation; this is the ultimate creation, the Son, and through the Son, us. And, then, we become adopted bar, sons and daughters of God.

Blessing

The bara leads to the blessing — the blessing of God’s only begotten Son.

Eph. 1:3 ¶ Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

To reiterate, the blessing of the creation leads to the blessing of God’s Son, which redounds to our blessing. The original creation was a physical and earthly blessing; the blessing of the Son is a heavenly blessing. We are blessed with physical life, and with eternal life. God is blessed and out of his blessing, we become blessed as well. We see clearly now, the wonderment of the bar, the Son as a result of the bara, the creation and the barak, the blessing.

Titus 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus,

The “blessed hope” in the verse refers to the unseen, the future promise both of the land of Canaan in ancient Israel and the Kingdom of God when Christ returns. We are looking for the barak hope. Barak, of course comes from the bar, the Son, and of course, everything points to the creation leading to the begotten Son of God.

Covenant

The root sound of the son, bar, leads to the berith, the covenant. Out of the creation covenant, we get the Son. This covenant is amplified and made powerful by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Son.

Luke 2:20 The shepherds went back, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as had been told them.

Without the bar, the begotten Son of God, without his taking our sins on himself and dying for our sins, blood spilled for our sins, we cannot be a part of the New Cove-n ant. This goes beyond the covenant of creation, because we become a new creation. Out of the old creation, we get the new creation, a better creation growing out of the old creation. Of course, we could not have a new creation without the foundation of the old creation.

Heb. 12:24 and to Jesus, the mediator of a new covenant, and to the sprinkled blood, which speaks better than the blood of Abel.

The saving work of the bar, the begotten Son of God, enables God to give us a new covenant. We cannot be a new creation without the bar arising from the bara, a most powerful sound in the Hebrew.

Light

Next we have the baraq, which means light. The light also points us to the bar, the begotten Son of God, which in turn points us to the light. The sound system of the Hebrew language enables us to go back and forth in that family of sounds.

2Cor. 4:4 in whose case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelieving so that they might not see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

What is the light of the gospel about? It is the biography of Jesus, what he did and said.

2Cor. 4:6 For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.

The first thing that God said is, “Let there be light.” That light illuminates. Not only the physical world but also illuminates God’s Word about the spiritual world. Beyond the light of the sun beyond the light to any man-made illumination is that light revealed through the words and actions of the bar, the begotten Son of God, for whom God made the entire creation. In his life on Earth, he enlightens us all who would understand the glory of God. His son lived the life of light.

2Tim. 1:10 but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel,

We already have the covenant of the life through the creation itself, which needs the light from the sun, but this life is life eternal fostered by the light of the Gospel, the gospel of the bar.

Power

Now we have the barzillay, the power imbued in the creation by the all-powerful creator.

Rom. 1:4 who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord,

Jesus was not just declared the bar, the only begotten Son, not only by being born, but by living a perfect life made in the image of God. He was the living Word in that everything that he said and did was perfectly in tune with God’s Word. Jesus Christ, the bar, embodied the written Word of God. The written Word took on form, in deed, became clothed with flesh and walked the Earth. The power was not intrinsic to Jesus, but by the resurrection, which was a results of Jesus’ perfect life, his taking on mankind’s sins and dying for them. Just being born of parents does not necessarily make the person a worthy progeny but by living an exemplary life akin to their parents makes them a true child and heir. Jesus, of course, epitomizes his being made in the image of God, and thus the perfect bar, the begotten Son of God. God furthermore had to declare with power the importance of the resurrection.

1Cor. 1:24 but to those who are the called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Jesus inherited the power of God, not just because he was the begotten son, but because of the creation, covenant, blessing, light, power leading to the Son.

1Pet. 1:3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

Jesus said that he was going to go to his God and your God, to his Father and your Father. God’s blessing results in the blessing resulting from Jesus’ works, eternal life.

The original creation leads to the imperishable creation. The family of root sounds comes together through faith in the salvation obtained by the bar, the begotten Son of God.

1Pet. 1:4 to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,

Cleanness

Heb. 9:14 how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

Now we have the bor coming from the bar, Christ, and bara, the creation. All the family of root sounds come together to make us clean to be able to inherit the Kingdom of God. What a powerful God, what a powerful creation, what a powerful blessing, what a powerful Son, what a powerful covenant.

Psa. 32:1 How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered!

We are the ones so blessed, because our transgressions are forgiven, our sins covered because of the bar.

God no longer takes our sins into account, because of the bar His begotten son.

Conclusion

This is the power of the bar. Everything that God wanted leads to the Son and through him us. And then we are further blessed because of the Son when we give the blessings we receive from God to others.

The foundational sound, the foundation of the creation is bar, the son, for God created, the bara, the world for him, God blessed, barak, us through him, God gave us the eternal covenant, berith, because of him. God brought forth light, baraq, for him and through him for us. God gave us the power, barzillay, of godly love through him. And God cleansed, bor, us through him. All God did for His only begotten bar, who rallied for us to give God glory, redounds on our life, love and eternal salvation.

Psa. 72:18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, Who alone works wonders.
Psa. 72:19 And blessed be His glorious name for-ever;
And may the whole earth be filled with His glory.
Amen, and Amen.
