Light = אור (oar), to order, to gathered
The use of etymology here is taken from the work that defines the understanding of the word light in the Hebrew language. In its simplest form, the definition of light is a three dimensional concept of putting things in order or the gathering together in order within the confines of it. When applied to Matthew 5:17
“Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.”
Yeshua ha Mashiach validates the continuation of the observation of the law as a way of guidance for the children of Israel. Therefore, it was not intended that the law should be disregarded. It is through His teachings of the establishment of His kingdom to come and His lessons on the application of it that would redefine it. Not by excluding any particular part of the law, but by lightening the yoke off the shoulders of all believers and sinners through eternal life, in spiritual and physical deliverance by the understanding of faith.
Christ carefully outlined the path to deliverance, redemption, salvation and healing not only of the mortal body but the soul. The teachings he em parted unto His apostles were knowledge of overcoming the natural through the supernatural power of spiritual warfare in obedience and prayer; by the reconstruction and renewal of the soul, the mind and the behavior of believers. Here he is portraying through intangible means the parameters and gathering believers into acceptable ways of prayer, life and belief. His depiction of the acceptable behaviors described in the sermon on the Mount are instructions on humility. For greater favor in prayer life as well as expectations of obedience in imitation of the Messiah like behavior. The Beatitudes themselves promise the believer and followers of Christ that though they may face hardships and persecution they are granted grace and favor. When we supra impose these mindsets taught in the beatitudes unto the acceptable fast of the Lord, we are promised deliverance. Why? Because we are keeping with the commandment given to us that we should love one another and therefore our faith is live an active in that we deed unto our brethren out of love for God and compassion. Not out of seeking recognition or satisfaction in deeds not born of faith.
Isaiah 58:5-12 King James Version (KJV)
5 Is it such a fast that I have chosen? a day for a man to afflict his soul? is it to bow down his head as a bulrush, and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him? wilt thou call this a fast, and an acceptable day to the Lord?
6 Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke?
7 Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?
8 Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward.
9 Then shalt thou call, and the Lord shall answer; thou shalt cry, and he shall say, Here I am. If thou take away from the midst of thee the yoke, the putting forth of the finger, and speaking vanity;
10 And if thou draw out thy soul to the hungry, and satisfy the afflicted soul; then shall thy light rise in obscurity, and thy darkness be as the noon day:
11 And the Lord shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not.
12 And they that shall be of thee shall build the old waste places: thou shalt raise up the foundations of many generations; and thou shalt be called, The repairer of the breach, The restorer of paths to dwell in.
The law of life and death in and of itself didn’t offer a form of salvation or sacrificial element. The notion that life could be preserved in the keeping of it continues to be the centerpiece throughout the whole bible as a way of understanding the will of God for His people in a relationship that is built on trust, honesty and faith. The fulfillment of His death on the cross however, established the new and everlasting covenant that those who accepted and believed in Yeshua could receive forgiveness and escape eternal damnation. This covenant extended outside of just His chosen people in-order that it may fulfill His prophetic word that all should come to know Him. The ultimate sacrifice that not only ended the ritual sacrifices for the forgiveness of sins but also eliminated the requirement of a partition between the believer and God himself through the advocate whom we have in Yeshua. That whilst he was with His apostles did instruct them on how they should pray, giving then also special instruction on how to approach God in confidence and humility. Having received the Holy Spirit, He would never depart from us even-though He would have to leave us to be at the right hand of the Father.
There is a great significance here in that the redemption of the first born was exacted by the sacrifice of the second, yet only begotten one of God. That Israel, God’s first born may come to salvation through bearing witness to Messhiah at that time and in latter times that those who believe, through the obedience of the law by His Chosen One to destroy the works of the devil. That in completion, total elimination of sin, a sanctification through faith, but also instructing us on how to achieve overcoming the tribulation by the enemy of God,especially in the end times. When all of these teachings must be summoned up and utilized by believers. Therefore, the importance of the teachings of the living Christ as well as the obedience of believers to the laws of God are essential not only in the blessings they obtain, but the defining of character and the power of the right hand of God In the Hebrew.
as to the dunamis power in the Greek. As it is referenced in the Aaronic blessing in relationship to the power and authority of the Headship of God, the father, who has the power and authority to destroy the works of the devil and in the following:
“And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”
