Shalom and thanks for the invite to the forum. I have one of those creative understandings that Chuck was mentioning on what "heart of the earth" is. I simply used a Strongs, so perhaps somebody else here has greater resources to support their very creative understanding.
But I would like to say that anybody who is following YHWH with all of their hearts, souls, and minds would only find their creative understandings from the Creator, so please can we be careful in saying that others are following the evil one in their understandings (or even insinuating such)?
If we are to grow spiritually and understand greater truth, we must be willing to yield to the will of YHWH in each of our lives - even when we don't agree -
Be gracious and understanding, humble and serving and not overbearing and rude and sarcastic and impatient.
I, personally, would have a very hard time receiving any truth from anybody who displayed these unrighteous fruits. So, please can we all use this forum and new opportunity to show the world how even when we as followers of the SAME Elohim, do not agree, we are still loving, gentle, civilized, and respectful to one another and each others understandings - believing and even KNOWING that all of us have been placed where we are in YHWHs appointed place and time for His greater purpose.
And perhaps we only answer questions from those whom YHWH shares with us are sincere in wanting to know what He has delivered to us, but do not share with any believer whose purpose is to work to destroy the good pearls that have been delivered to us thus far with such things as sarcasm, rudeness, impatience, etc...
So, with all of that being shared, I would like to ask if anybody here is interested in hearing the very creative understanding that YHWH has delivered to me regarding the sign of Jonah.
Praying for all of us (meaning, my self included) to properly discern when it is right to share and when it is right to remain silent.
May we all be focused on YHWH and not looking down on to others. May we lower ourselves daily and share with others only when we can be joined by the Ruach haKodesh to properly guide us in to the place that YHWHs Word has prepared for each of us.
Waiting for the door to open.
