The Parents of the Faith – Abraham and Sarah

Adultery at the core has to do with oneness and ownership. Sarah was a beulat (owned) of an baal (owner) according to Genesis 20:3:

It was because of this that God threatened Abimelech, “thou art but a dead man, because of the woman which thou hast taken”. The real translation of this verse is not “she is married to a man” but she is an owned of an owner. The word baal is a noun that means owner and the word beulat is a passive participle verb in the feminine singular that means owned.

This word owned is only used in a few places but is never translated literally. It is transliterated however one time:

you shall be called Hephzibah, and your earth Beulah: for the LORD delights in you, and your earth shall be owned. Isa. 62:4 Literal Translation

Don’t you think God wants us to learn about that word? Beulah is her name. It means she is spoken for.

For as a bachur-man owns a bethulah-virgin,

A bachur is not just any man. Bachur is the passive participle of the verb to choose (See Strong’s #970, 977). A Bachur is a choice or chosen man–selected from among men. Bethulah is the noun from a root that means “separate”, and hence implies “virgin” because she is “kept” or “concealed”.

The entire existence of these words were never meant to be rules but to speak prophetically. They speak of a foreknown, prepared destination for the believing. It behooves the Church therefore to be a bethulah—unspotted, without blemish, without wrinkle as a betrothed wife of Christ (Eph. 5:6). When she submits herself to another baal/owner/lord she commits adultery. Adultery is not the deed, but the betrayal of the covenant of ownership, “I will be your God, and you will be my people” (Lev. 26:12). It’s worshiping another god. Because the baal is the owner and not the owned, he can become the baal of many wives (or concubines) and it is not adultery. This is why God never condemned the patriarchs or Solomon for having multiple wives. God himself is seen as having two wives in Jeremiah 3. He divorces the one because of her adultery, but not the other. God also commanded Hosea to take two different prostitute wives (read the story again closely).

So your sons will own you;

This is the verb form of baal. “The sons will baal you.” Who? The Earth. Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, the Earth, as it now is, all things present, and all things to come, are now betrothed to the sons of the Most High, the Chosen bachurim. Everything is at their disposal. The bachurim are prophesied to be the most powerful men the world has ever laid eyes on. They are the “grey hairs” that rise up at the end of the age, when the age of Christ is old,

The glory of bachurim is their angelic-samson-like-strength [Hebrew kocham. Strong’s #3581], And the honour of elders is grey hairs. Proverbs 20:29 Literal

When Abraham and Sarah were elders the son of promise was birthed (Gen. 18:11). This is why the sons of the Most High seek nothing, and leave off pursuing everything, including wives (Luke 18:29). They seek no great thing for themselves.

And as the bridegroom rejoices over the bride,

The Hebrew noun behind “bridegroom” is chathan and comes from a verb that means “to become a son-in-law” or “ally oneself by marriage” (See #2859). The Hebrew behind “bride” is kallah and carries the same notion, “a daughter-in-law, in reference to husband’s father” (See #3618).

And as the son-in-law rejoices over the daughter-in-law, so your God will rejoice over you.

The profundity of this is found in the fact that Jesus Christ is betrothed to his “sister” because the Church he weds is born of the same Father and Mother. This is the one point in the Law where scholars have tripped up for centuries which says literally,

And if a man shall take his sister, his father’s daughter, or his mother’s daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is goodness; and they shall be cut off in the eyes of the sons of their people—he hath uncovered his sister’s nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity.

Leviticus 20:17 literal

See the passage in interlinear for yourself. The Hebrew word is hesed which means goodness or kindness. Translators don’t like things they don’t understand and prefer to hide them from the masses. This passage speaks of the very glory of Christ and the Gospel, naturally. The pool of Bethesda in John 5 is derived from this word–bet-heseda, House of Kindness. This is a great prophecy. Jesus bore the guilt of uncovering the Church’s nakedness–his sister’s nakedness. In so doing, he and her are cut-off in the sight of the sons. This is about Jesus and his Body of Death, his sister the Harlot, being cut-off in the sight of the sons. The sons themselves are those disciples who have died with Christ and have been loosed from the flesh of the Harlot/Body of Death to become one flesh with Christ’s “sister” the Body of Promise that is yet to be revealed.
