Happy New Month!
As always, this is not a final say to the interpretation. Rather than seeing it as an interpretation, see it as more of a skill to use for your own interpretation of the bible. I simply use this to show you what happens when you pill away the letters of the word. Please enjoy.
Exodus 1:1 (KJV) Now these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt; every man and his household came with Jacob.
First step interpretation:
Now: Right now, at this very moment you are reading.
Names: The nature, the traits of; the names in the bible reflects the nature of its recipient.
Children: Root word bânâh, means to build up, caused to continue, establish; in context, children represents souls which are ready to be built up or to continue – as in a journey.
Isreal: Root word śârâh, means to have power, persevere, contend with, and êl, means God like. Looking at the history of the name itself, Jacob wrestled with God, stayed with Him all day or all night (i can’t remember now). He got his name from his nature of holding on to God, continuing with Him till he got what he wanted.
Egypt: Land of material consciousness.
Man: Thought processes, consciousness.
Household: State of mind or consciousness.
Jacob: The supplanter, following after. (Hope you noticed what the bible did there. First, children of Isreal. Now children of Jacob. Everything has a meaning).
Exodus 1:1 At this very moment, these are the traits/characteristics of a soul who is ready to continue its search for God. This soul which entered into the material world/consciousness, every of his thought processes and its state of mind came with that which is to follow.
S/N: Jacob supplanted Esau. So you can find out who Esau is and maybe by the old gods and new, compare it.
Exodus 1:2 (KJV) Reuben, Simeon, Levi, and Judah, 1:3 Issachar, Zebulun, and Benjamin, 1:4 Dan, and Naphtali, Gad, and Asher.
First step interpretation:
Reuben: ‘Behold a son’; two root words râ’âh: to see, behold, consider; bên: son (a new state of consciousness).
Simeon: Means to hear; to listen, percieve.
Levi: to join; to join oneself to.
Judah: Praise; to give thanks to.
Issachar: there is recompense. Recompense means to give compensation for
Zebulun: to dwell
Benjamin: Son of the right hand (righteousness).
And Naphtali: Wrestling; to wrestle.
Gad: Seer, troup, fortunate.
And Asher: Happy
Exodus 1:2 With the ability to see a new state of consciousness and to listen to one’s own inner voice. To join oneself to these new consciousness with praise and thanksgiving for it. 1:3 With readiness to be compensated for the ability to control all thought processes under a right consciousness, 1:4 which comes with vigilant discrimination, with willingness to wrestle former thought processes that makes one weak knowing that you are already fortunate and content and thus happy.
Exodus 1:5 (KJV) And all the souls that came out of the loins of Jacob were seventy souls: for Joseph was in Egypt already.
Exodus 1:5 And all the thought processes that was born from that which is to follow or born from the desire for growth were perfect and had all the power necessary to fulfill their desire since the ability to expand their consciousness is already inherent in the material mindset or consciousness…
Awww…I love it. Reminds you of the Ying Yang symbol huh? See the bible describing the Ying Yang. In the white there is a seed of black and in the black a seed of white.
…on and on and more and then on and on and more…for all eternity.
You are blessed.
