These are the Four Foundational Words of God to man.
They are written in Greek and English.
But I found the TRUTH in their translations to be the heart of God for us
and the deeper meanings to be invisible from the surface.
May we employ a serious ear to hear these Four Foundational Words.
Over the last 10 to 12 weeks the Holy Spirit has been leading me on a deep review of these four words. Not as individual threads of understanding as they were brought to me in the past, but as a collection, whole cloth woven together at the foundations of the world.
Since He spoke this existence into being and breathed life into the dust of the ground, these 4 have made up the fabric of God’s interaction with us and predicated our responses. As He has led me to ponder and consider with Him, He has reveled that these Four Foundational Words were established by Him as He promoted the WAY, in TRUTH as the LIFE in this earth. They cover what we need to understand about this existence and our entrance into eternal life with Him, beyond this existence.
These four words are foundational because like the roots of a tree, if one is willing to dig and then inquire of the Spirit about what is unearthed, these 4 words will be found surrounding the root of God in mankind. His Kingdom within us.
As I have followed His leading to dig, He’s revealed that these Four Foundational Words express and nourish the WAY. His provision of TRUTH for us threaded throughout all existence from creation, right up to this very moment we occupy. Two or more of these words are always at work in us, believer or not. And His joy is made complete when the first three in the sequence are dancing together in unison.
A critical point in all of this is to take note of their order, the sequence they are laid out in, because the exact representation of everything that God has ever done with us is found in that order, in that sequence. And here is what I have come to understand. To misunderstand this sequence, as I believe we have for generations, is to miss the mark He sows in our hearts and desires we embrace as our image.
In the garden of Eden, without Adam having any “knowledge” or understanding of it, the Father established these Four Foundational Words to serve as the form and framework for all mankind. All four words manifested in the garden, right after God breathed into the dust of the ground, before innocence was perverted and nakedness was discovered.
Here is a little overview of the sequence of these four words and how they operate. If the first two words are embraced as the treasure of our hearts when He initiates them, we can respond in the third word, following with after and behind what is heard. If we will ponder, consider and heed what He is saying, His words will become the treasure of our heart and will blot out the fourth word and lay it to rest. 1 John 2:1
If Adam were walking among us today, he could testify to the order and magnitude of the sequence. Adam could tell us how the Father brought the first two words to him unsought and offered empowerment to perform His Word with respect to His opinion, judgement and view of Adam’s situation. Adam could verify how he missed the mark, the javelin of God’s purpose that was spoken to his heart. How repentance wasn’t embraced for the kingdom of God that was at hand because he listened to the voice of the serpent stranger who doesn’t honor the mark of the Father in anything. Adam could bear witness to the fact that God did exceedingly, abundantly more than he could have thought or asked in the Word he heard prior to the serpent speaking deception, encouraging him to miss the mark.
The intercession of the Father spoke the WAY, in TRUTH as the LIFE to Adam. And like Adam, we too are created to live off of His intercession in repentance.
God has woven these four words like thread throughout the fabric of all scripture. Every instance of God seeking our awakening or development is predicated on His voice speaking first. Just like His breath placed into the newly formed dust of the ground, the breath that carries the Word of His power that upholds all things. Heb. 1:3
These Four Foundational Words are broken out into parts, the first two belong to God Almighty, and Him alone. They are the initiating spark and fulfillment of everything in Him. They are the draw, the understanding, they reveal the WAY, in TRUTH, as LIFE. The third and fourth words belong to us. But they are merely responses to the first two words, like them or not.
If we treasured His voice in the first two words, embracing our first choice in the sequence, we could cease entertaining the fourth word in the foundation. We would be clean and free of sin.
Truly, I believe the essence of God, His plan and desire for us has always been for a three legged stool, as He is, Father, Son and Spirit and said, ‘Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness…”
But He made provision in the foundation of this world for a fourth leg, because satan and the rebellion had been cast out from Him, to this formless and void earth. The existence of the fourth foundational word represents the rebellion, missing the mark and not having a share in God. The fourth word was the set-up for the sting, to be be handled by the Lamb of God slain from the foundations of the world. Rev 13:8
Jesus hanging on the tree, taking on the curse, suffering and dying and being raised again on the third day defeated sin and death; the failure of Adam to listen for and follow with, after and behind the voice of the Living God and consuming the fruit of the Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil that brought death to humanity.
The provision of the fourth foundational word in this existence does not have a share in the kingdom of God, as is. And just like a corrupt tree, the fourth word, sin, moniker of the rebellion and those who do not listen for the voice of the shepherd has been cut down in the obedience of Christ. All of the advocates and associates of this fourth word, the devil, the beast and the false prophet, death and Hell will be thrown into the lake of fire as punishment, for rebellion against the Living Word of God. Is 14:12, Rev 20
Reiterating, the first two words are God’s passionate and persistent provision of His Word to us. They embody His desire to empower us into His unity. That is His treasure and it has always been, so since the foundations of the world. The last two words of the four paint a picture of our potential posture, one of life and one of death that God set before Adam and every generation since.
Greater detail is to come and hopefully it will illuminate the life in the Father, offered as a gift in Christ, who called for repentance from the foundations of the world for the Kingdom of God at hand.
Heaven and earth will pass away along with the fourth word, sin, that has been defeated in Christ. It is God’s desire for us to understand the sequence and depth of meaning in these four words. That out of His love for us, we would embrace the first three words, as they are the treasure of His heart to us, His desire in us to enter into unity with Him. For him who has an ear, let him ponder, consider and heed to the understanding in the mind, these Four Foundational Words.
In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him,
and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
In Him was life,
and the life was the Light of men.
God speaking first is the tap root of all existence. His voice, His living Word woven as thread throughout, upholds all things. It is the Word of His power and from the moment He spoke and what He said came to be, the Father established the WAY, in TRUTH, as LIFE. That WAY remains unchanged, standing firm today.
Jesus exposed the framework of these Four Foundational Words before all men. In perfection, He demonstrated the WAY, in TRUTH as the LIFE for us. He embraced the first two words of the Father through the third word, repentance. He overcame the fourth word sin, in following the WAY of the Father through these first three words. He embraced the first two words as life in the Father through repentance, to the point of shedding His blood and dying on the cross. He overcome sin with life!
We were created to understand and embrace this framework Jesus demonstrated, this three legged stool, made in His image, secured in His living and active Word that overcomes the fourth word. Though we may not understand or flatly reject that image, the genesis of the WAY stands:
Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God. Matt 4:4.
With an ear to hear His voice and the word He speaks, the Bread of Life fills us and makes us clean.
You are already clean because of the Word which I have spoken to you.
THE FIRST AND SECOND WORD
[The Alpha and Omega]
[The First and Last Word]
THIS here is a deep Ponder Stop.
If you will let Him reveal it to you.
The first and second words in the sequence of the Four Foundational Words are Entygchanō and doxa. Though they do come in the same breath, in one shot; understanding and honoring the order is paramount to grasping His heart for relationship and how this whole God thing actually works in us!
Intercession – Entygchanō is the first of the Four Foundational Words. It’s the most important word in the sequence and possibly all existence because it’s the Word of life offered to all. This first word is the revelation of God to the souls of humanity. It brings the motivation, power, strength, and ability to go with after and behind the leading of God.
This first word, His intercession, is every word that proceeds from the mouth of God that Jesus told satan man would live off of. Think about that, consider what’s being said. Jesus told satan, man would live off of every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. Well? every word that proceeds from the mouth of God is His intercession upholding all things by the Word of His power. It’s for this reason, I believe Jesus told us, it’s for him who has an ear to hear.
The voice of the shepherd presents this first word to us in the Spirit with groanings too deep for words. As He speaks, He holds out to us the unmerited favor of His life embedded in those words. I believe in the end those words will be read back to us from the Lamb’s Book of Life. His grace is this Word of His power we can receive here and now and return back to Him as a praise to His name.
The goodness anyone can access, or the love we can have for our children and neighbor begins with this Word spoken within us, to us, not from us.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?”Luke 11:13
The intercession of God speaks to us before we could think or ask, which begs review of the question Paul asked, “What do you have that you did not receive? And if you did receive it, why do you boast as if you did not receive it?” 1 Cor 4:7
His intercession is the invisible connection He has to all humanity. While the natural man goes about his business, in any manor of distraction or attention, the Father presents Himself unsought in conversation and supplication, with a call, a draw to love, something to ponder or consider, a prayer, consultation, wisdom or understanding… The Word of Life that leads us to Him.
The bible says Jesus forever lives to make intercession in Heb. 7:25. He eternally lives to intercede, lighting upon our unsuspecting souls to entreat us to listen and honor that life found in the Word He speaks, that cleanses us.
Stated another way, The Word of Life is being spoken to us right now. When we go with, after and behind that word spoken, pondering, considering, thinking upon and heeding what is said, eternal life manifests in our souls. Because every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God is life. Repent and believe the TRUTH.
Adam understands this now.
We live off of His intercession in repentance.
Implanted into His Intercession, yet concealed from the prudent and the wise is the second word, His doxa – the opinion, judgement and view of God. For deeper insight into the word doxa, I encourage you to read or listen to these prior posts He gave me to share:
The reason being is doxa translated as “glory” is completely ineffective for expressing and revealing the second word in the sequence, the last Word of God that holds His opinion, judgement and view of everything He created. The Omega of this existence.
He desires we acknowledge the magnitude and impact of His intercession on us and embrace His embedded opinion, judgement and view of this life that comes through it. He is seeking to draw us to himself, so He can reveal His doxa. Like Adam, those who put Jesus on the cross and you and I, we do not understand what we are doing apart from Him, apart from His doxa. Jesus said it Himself,
…apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5
We see through a veil dimly, but through the unseen initiating spark of His intercession that carries and delivers His opinion, judgement and view, we can begin to understand our place here. We can begin to embrace the need for our lives to line up with His doxa, the last word on everything.
Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them. Heb. 7:25
By grace and mercy Jesus delivers His persistent intercession to God’s Gap in our hearts. His Word of power offered first for life carries with it the last Word on everything. Ponder that one!
In Rom 8:26-27 Paul writes: In the same way the Spirit also helps our weakness; for we do not know how to pray as we should, but the Spirit Himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words; and He who searches the hearts knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.
Romans and Hebrews both tell us that Jesus and the Holy Spirit are interceding. Romans 8:27 points out the fact that the intercession of God carries with it the doxa – the opinion, judgement and view of God because He [the Holy Spirit] intercedes according to the will of God. I think it’s fair to say that the will of God carries with it, His opinion judgement and view of everything.
Now it isn’t written as such, but because They are one and dwell in complete unity, the intercession of Jesus by extension must carry the doxa of God as well. That would fit perfectly with what Jesus proclaimed as He walked the earth, speaking things as the Father taught Him. Romans 8:34 also says Jesus is seated at the right hand of God as intercession is going on and depending on how you read it, it could be saying the Father Himself intercedes with His Word too. I’m just gonna count that as a yes. They are in perfect unity.
I feel led to say something here in regard to the intercession of the Holy Spirit in groanings that are too deep for words. It’s quite possible that the only impression we have of intercession is a group of believers that gather on a Thursday to pray together and maybe not about the words spoken over and into us by the Holy Spirit.
He has made me a strong advocate for the necessity of an ear to hear, in this piece and countless pieces before. But the groanings too deep for words noted in Romans 8:27 give us a glimpse into the invisible God and how He comes in, by and with us without our understanding or awareness delivering empowerment and the doxa of God.
In Mark 4:26 Jesus tells us that,
“The kingdom of God is like a man who casts seed upon the soil; and he goes to bed at night and gets up by day, and the seed sprouts and grows—how, he himself does not know.
Man doesn’t know how a seed grows. Ponder that one! To this day “science” still can’t tell us “how” it happens, they can only describe the surrounding elements. We have no idea and there isn’t a proper word to describe it’s genesis other than to say it’s God that does it. Jesus said, it’s like the kingdom of God. Well? apparently, it’s also like the intercession of the Holy Spirit. We can see His fruit, but we have no idea how it got there or where the initiating spark came from, other than to say, it’s God.
When the Lord God formed man in His image and likeness from the dust of the ground, He breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; the man became a living being. How? – we don’t know. Mary, conceived Jesus of the Holy Spirit. How? – we don’t know. Jesus was raised from the dead by the Holy Spirit. How? – we do not know. It’s like the seed in the soil. Groanings to deep for words.
Adam was formed from the dust without vigor or vitality, He didn’t know how he came to life, it just happened. Like Adam, we are designed to be held up and led by His Spirit, His breath that draws us into God. And that breath of God as breathed into Adam, is our vital breath, our divine inspiration, our intellect, our soul, and spirit. The image of God. That’s what God established in us when His breath made us living beings. We were gifted with this, from the beginning. And then Jesus asks…
…how much more will your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” Luke 11:13
Our weakness is that we don’t know how to pray to the advantage of God as we should, but that weakness we have isn’t because of sin, the weakness is in our design, by design, to rely upon the breath that draws us into God, to be meek and humble at heart, the yoke of Christ.
Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and humble in heart: and you shall find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. Matt 11:29 – 30
We were formed for repentance, to live off of every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God, His intercession. In the easy yoke of Christ, we were designed to go with after and behind the Living Word as Jesus did in agreement with the word of the Father. To subdue the earth and put it under our feet as a praise to His name.
His unction and power are found in groanings that words can’t express, similar to the seed in the soil, that bursts into life at a moment that can’t be predicted. We don’t how He does it, but His intercession, comes in, by, and with us, as good seed, as a groaning too deep for words, looking for good soil to produce a good harvest 30, 60 or a hundred fold, in His Kingdom within us.
He authored, the kingdom within, the intellect, soul, and spirit, to receive divine inspiration in the Living Word He speaks, the Word of His power. He breathed the kingdom of God into Adam with the necessity of repentance being Adam’s first choice, in the sequence. The lie is that knowledge of good and evil is what makes us like God.
His Intercession comes before we can even think or ask; before we can do good, or even think about God. The very definition of the compound word Entygchanō says it clearly. The intercession of God comes [in, by, with] / [to reach, attain or obtain, taking a case, becoming master over, of He who meets one or presents Himself unsought, discharging a javelin or arrow, to hit the mark].
Stated again, the intercession of God comes [in, by, with] / [to reach, attain or obtain, taking a case, becoming master over, of He who meets one or presents himself unsought, discharging a javelin or arrow, to hit the mark]. His Intercession is the genesis of God in the hearts of mankind. The manifestation of His Intercession in us is synonymous to the breath Adam was given that brought him to life. Boom! It’s just there! Do we have an ear for the first word? Do we live in the third word? Repentance.
We think of God in response. He deposits the good gift in the voice of His intercession in our hearts, leading to the peace that surpasses all understanding and renews our mind with the understanding that, Oh Yeah? It really is all about You isn’t it? To the praise of His goodness and the worship of His name.
He forever lives to make intercession seated at the right hand of the power of God. Along with the Holy Spirit who speaks to us in groanings too deep for words. They both show us the WAY, give us the ability to know the TRUTH and form the genesis of life. I’m sorry to say everything else, is hubris, born of the TOTKOGAE [Tree Of The Knowledge Of Good And Evil].
So that’s why Entygchanō is the first in sequence, the Alpha of the Four Foundational words. Yet, inextricably tied to His intercession is the second and last word on everything, His Doxa.
When they come in by and with us, presenting themselves unsought, taking our case, discharging their javelin to hit the mark and become master over us, they are expressing the opinion, judgement and view of the Father. Is it a wonder why Jesus referred to Himself as the Alpha and Omega?
He is the first word in creation, His breath established our soul and spirit. He is the first word in the draw we have in our hearts toward Him and His will be the last word that judges all things reconciling them back to the Father through Himself and the word He spoke.
John 12:48 He who rejects Me and does not receive My sayings, has one who judges him; the word I spoke is what will judge him at the last day.
Rev 22:12-13 “Behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to render to every man according to what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
Without the WAY of the first two words in action, there would be no enlightenment of TRUTH, there would be no life, no awareness or draw to Him, because as Romans 3:11 states, no one seeks for God. The primary point of action, the origin, the literal cause proceeds from the mouth of God first through His intercession. The groanings too deep for words bursting forth like a seed in the soil. And that intercession expresses His opinion, judgment and view of everything, before we could think or ask.
As proof to these groanings, the unseen but all sustaining Word of intercession, let’s look at the understanding Jesus sought to impart to us. His unwavering expression of meekness and surrender to the Father’s voice, expressing the eternal opinion, judgement and view of God, as the LIFE.
Though there are more, let the Holy Spirit wash over you, soak you and imbue you with the deep rooted revelation of these 5 passages. See how Jesus established the first two of these Four Foundational Words as the genesis and conclusion for eternal life.
The words that I say to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father abiding in Me does His works. John 14:10
“…but so that the world may know that I love the Father, I do exactly as the Father commanded Me. John 14:30
…I am He, and I do nothing on My own initiative, but I speak these things as the Father taught Me. John 8:27
Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and have come from God, for I have not even come on My own initiative, but He sent Me. John 8:42
For I did not speak on My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what to speak. I know that His commandment is eternal life; therefore the things I speak, I speak just as the Father has told Me.” John 12:49-50
But when He, the Spirit of TRUTH, comes, He will guide you into all the TRUTH; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come. John 16:13
If this isn’t a Ponder Stop for us I wonder what could ever be?
Upon who’s initiative do we speak? And what are those words? Are they careless?
Matt 12:36-37 says, But I tell you that every careless word that people speak, they shall give an accounting for it in the day of judgment. For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”
It is enough for the disciple that he become like his teacher, and the slave like his master. Matt 10:25
A pupil is not above his teacher; but everyone, after he has been fully trained, will be like his teacher. Luke 6:40
Again, Upon who’s initiative do we speak? And is it His opinion, judgement and view being represented? …like his Master? Like the one who comes in, by and with, to reach, attain, obtain and become Master of? Can we describe the javelin of His purpose He’s impaled our hearts with? What’s the fruit of our speech? Is it the fruit of the one who presents Himself unsought?
So, the Father gave the commandment in the living Word Jesus spoke. Tempted in every way like us, to say and do things the Father was not prompting Him to say or do, yet without sin or failure to only echo the Father in Word and deed. Jesus had to rely on the voice and empowerment of the Holy Spirit and in that, He was fully man, just like us. And in doing exactly as the Father commanded not speaking on His own initiative, but speaking the Word of the Father, He was fully God. As we should also be empowered.
The word of God has come to us and He called them gods, to whom the Word of God came.John 10:35
The Father by the Holy Spirit was [in, by and with] Jesus [discharging the javelin of His purpose. Speaking, [He hit the mark], and became [master over] the hearer. That hearer, Jesus, was fully submitted to those words because He was meek, fully integrated into the grace that is sufficient and the power that is perfected in weakness. And those words are eternal life. The Father sanctified Him and sent Him to say and do exactly as commanded, through His intercession to express the opinion, judgement and view of God. The Father was in Him and He was in the Father and that made Him fully God, even as a man.
Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father is in Me?… Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me; otherwise believe because of the works themselves. John 14:10-11
Through the intercession of the Holy Spirit, in groanings to deep for words, Jesus bore fruit of the eternal living Word of the Father. The doxa of God, the opinion, judgment and view of the eternal One who lives forever. Jesus was the perfect demonstration of the first three of the Four Foundational Words for us. Like Him, we are to listen for the intercession of God, the command and teaching of the Father by the Spirit, because those words received are the expressed will of the Father and they are eternal life. They are the essence of Your kingdom come. Your will be done, On earth as it is in heaven. We are to be trained as our Master and listen for the interceding voice of the Spirit, because in doing so, the revelation of His opinion, judgement and view is expressed and eternal life is found in them. Entygchanō and Doxa are the hand and glove fit of God’s grace to us, the nourishing soil to the foundational root of His life and salvation. These words are life.
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life. John 5:24
Simplifying, if we love the Father as Jesus loved the Father, we will listen for His voice and come [with after and behind] what He says. Then we are like Him, because apart from me, you can do nothing. Subsequently, if one has an ear to hear as Jesus demonstrated and implored us to have, then the doxa of God, His opinion, judgment and view will be received through His intercession and we will be children born of God, again.
In summation, nothing has changed since creation. As it was in the beginning, so it is today. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever. Heb 13:8 Presenting Himself unsought, the intercession of the Father was given freely to Adam in the garden of Eden. Jesus intervening on behalf of all humanity, listened for and followed the voice of the Father by the Spirit and presented those words freely and unsought to whosoever. Right now, both the Son and Spirit are interceding, presenting the unsought Word of the Father to us, expressing and seeking to empower us with the Word of life. The foundation of eternal life to the soul is found in these first two Words being spoken right now and they are to be met in repentance.
Part II of the Four Foundational Words will deal with our responses to these first two Words. God’s desire for us is to respond in repentance metanoeō, embracing the beauty of that word, the third leg of the stool, that dances with, after and behind the lead of the first two words. The fourth word and our second choice in the sequence of the Four Foundational Words hamartia – sin will be explained and exposed in light of the first three words in the sequence, just as Christ overcame death with life!
We are made in the image of God, created to receive His intercession and echo His opinion, judgment and view of everything received, just as Jesus did, and is interceding for us right now. Entygchanō and doxa are the first two of these Four Foundational Words and they are firmly established as the WAY the TRUTH and the LIFE, waiting to be met and embraced in repentance.
