Morning Devotions: Romans and a look at the Hebrew word, CHANNAH (grace)


Romans 1:1b-5a nasu … the gospel of God,  which (the Almighty) promised beforehand through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,  concerning His Son, who was born of a descendant of David according to the flesh,  who was declared the Son of God with power by the resurrection from the dead, according to the Spirit of holiness, Jesus Christ our Lord,  through whom we have received CHANNAH-grace

At yesterday’s Jr-High Ladies Devotions class (Monday, May 9), we discussed grace according to Paul’s epistle to the Romans. Learning to define grace from the Hebrew word CHANNAH. We get insight just from the Hebrew pictograph for CHANNAH-grace. 

chet (pronounce ch as in Bach) is a picture of living within the protective hedge of the Almighty, This hedge is for those who are, by resurrected from death through faith in Y'shua (Jesus). The ultimate protection will be the "rapture."

nun (pronounced "noon") life on the move, often spoken of as a seed growing. Others teach that it pictures the seed of man, teaching that believers are YHVH's offspring or heirs. Some say it pictures a path with a destination. Walking on The Way (The Way is the believers life-walk in the world but not of it), 

hey is a letter that represents the insight that comes from heaven through the Word of The Almighty in the power of the Holy Spirit. It is a picture of a spiritual person. Often translated, behold, it is a flag word, telling me to pay attention to the insight I am about to receive.

     Today’s devotional reading includes the first use of the word “grace” in the book of Romans. In verse 5 you have the foundational teaching to the Romans on grace. It is the strength to live life that is pleasing to YHVH- the LORD, instead of a life of rebellion. A simple but powerful place to start. This week we are going to learn that grace does more then help us with basic obedience to scripture, but this is where we must start if our lives will count for the Kingdom of Heaven and our King.

     Today’s challenge: ask The Almighty to let you know if you are living in His grace. If you are born again I think you will be surprised how many times a day you walk in rebellion and need to repent. I know that is often true of me. If you are not born again, I still challenge you to “call upon the LORD” for salvation (the Hebrew meaning of Jesus name). Grace is not always an easy life, but it is filled with Joy, and at the end of life on earth, it is a better outcome for your soul
