Shalom Brothers and Sisters! What a significant and deep topic. From all I have read (scripture, sages, advent of Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur...etc) the WELL is deep indeed. A pivot point from the Ruach Biynah. Like a prism/crystal, no matter which way/position it's examined, the word 'immersion' yields aspects in scripture that connect and reveal. For myself, at this time, it's landed on the amazing and fundamental word, SHALOM, the state of well-being filled with the grace of Yahuah to ready the soul for true repentance so that it can receive truth. Otherwise I/we remain in chaos/fear/self and cannot receive nor give truth. Following the trail of 'clean' and 'unclean' sifted my thinking to a higher level as I plunged deeper into the 'well of living waters'.
Chanok! Chapter 38, Parable the first. Clear and sharp as a double edged sword.. 'clean' and 'unclean' or righteous and sinners, the outcome, v 6. Then C 39:11,12. What? Chanok saw "those who do not sleep but stand before your glory" and then again repeated. Translated? Taken up? This was a place Chanok was desiring. Did Yahuah give him the desires of his heart? The last words in V12 from Chanok.."then my countenance became changed, until I was incapable of seeing". Powerful! Could it be myriads of myriads, Chanok 40:1 have been translated/converted over the generations? Forward to complete the parable.. 41-44. Maybe a glimpse of who we are in Yahuah? "Splendour produced splendour; and their conversion was into the number of angels and of the faithful....A similitude of those has YAHUAH TSEVA'OTH shown you. They are the names of the righteous (clean) who dwell upon the earth, and who believe in the name of YAHUAH TSEVA'OTH forever and ever."
This is a topic worthy of many more blogs/discussions! With deep gratitude... a sister who adores Yahuah and seeks to be clean!
