In the Bible there is an interesting man. His name and Adam’s name belong to the same Hebrew word family, i.e. they come from the SAME Hebrew root word.

This man is Esau, the son of Isaac, the twin of Jacob. Esau is also called Edom. And “Edom” means “red”. Edom and Adam share the same root word.

According to the Bible, Esau was a hunter. He loved hunting, and his father loved the meat he brought back. Imagine a hunter, when he goes hunting, he is weak, and soft, and cannot walk far. How can he catch any prey? Esau, on the other hand, being a skilled hunter, was a brave and strong man. He was not afraid of the wild beasts, nor running far to catch them. That’s the sign of having a lot of Yang Chi or Yang Energy as in “Yin and Yang”. Yang means to have courage, to not be afraid of difficulties and obstacles, to not be easily crushed. This is what a strong man or woman should be like and what God wants to give to us, to be filled with strength and courage, the characteristics of a juvilant person.

As an aside, if you don’t know what “root word” means, please go to “Original Scriptural Studies” category. Read the first article, and you will know it right away.

Learn how to study the Bible using the Strong Numbers and the First Occurrence Principle

We would like to share with you some basic knowledge of the Bible and how to apply the First Occurrence Principle to interpret the Bible.

As you may know, the Bible contains two parts, the Old Testament, and the New Testament. The Old Testament was written in Hebrew. The New Testament was written in Greek. For people who want to know what the Bible says in its original languages, they must need to learn those two languages first.

Or do they? Well, it happened that an American Bible scholar, named James Strong (1822-1894), and a team of nearly 100 others, in an age when there were no computers, came up with a way to assign a number to each and every word in the OT and NT. This number system is called Strong Numbers. Each of the more than 8000 words in the Hebrew OT, and more than 5000 words in the Greek NT are arranged in a systematic manner with a number. The words are arranged in an alphabetical way then associated with a sequential number.

The Old Testament numbers have an H in front. The New Testament numbers start with a “G”. You can imagine these two strands of numbers, one strand for the OT, and one strand for the NT, formed like a DNA double helix.

How can you become really positive?

These days we are encouraged to be positive, to give off positive vibes, to talk less of negative things. Is this good? Of course it is.

In the Bible, who fits the description of being the most positive or sunny or joyous person, in other words, jubilant? We say that has to be Adam, the first man God created. Because the word Adam in Hebrew, comes from the root word meaning “Red Dust”. He was made from dust, and dust comes from the root word “ashen”. Think about it, if a person’s appearance changes from ashen to ruddy, isn’t that a sign of having changed from negative to positive? Continue reading “Manna for Today 005”

Question: Matthew 13:52 – He said to them, “Therefore every teacher of the law who has become a disciple in the kingdom of heaven is like the owner of a house who brings out of his storeroom new treasures as well as old.”

How to understand this verse? Teachers of the law are often with the Pharisees, but here Jesus only mentions this group of people. What is special about them? How could becoming a disciple in the kingdom of heaven have something to do with the house owner’s bringing out his new and old treasures? Continue reading “Question and Ponder (1 and 2)”

For those who are new to our program, we would like to tell you this: the Chinese equivalent for this Juvilant platform is 禧洋洋, having three Chinese charaters, Xi Yang Yang.

In Chinese characters, there are many words that share the same or similar sound. For example, the character 洋/Yang in Xi Yang Yang sounds the same as “羊/lamb” and “阳/sun” in Chinese. In the case of Xi (pronounces the same as “see” or “sea” in English), it sounds the same as “洗/wash” or similar to “许/promise” in Chinese.

With the above pieces of information given, you might be able to guess other meanings that these three characters Xi Yang Yang put together may carry. Continue reading “Manna for Today 002”
