Q. What's Your stand on vaccines?
A. It is best to avoid vaccinations if at all possible, since we know that they are not always the best option for our health and possibly could be dangerous to our health. But we must also obey the law. If the law allows by an exception or way out, we should seek to take that legal way of avoiding vaccinations. But if it is NOT possible to avoid, then we must submit to the law and trust JEsus for divine protection.
Q. The Greek Septuagint of Exo.3:14 has the name of GOD as "EGO EIMI HO ON". What does that mean?
A. EHJEH ASHER EHJEH is the original Hebrew words in Exo.3:14.
EGO EIMI HO ON is the Greek words/translation for the same phrase in the same verse.
Therefore they mean the same thing: "I am JEH the beginning, currently self-existing, and eternally existing, JEH". (The h is silent so it's pronounced JE/G, the same sound in JEsus.)
Greek is actually true Hebrew. But the language did undergo many changes over the thousands of years from the time of Exodus until 300-100 A.D. Therefore we do not see the exact same letters. But it still means the same thing. The words are not 100% identical in translation because even the way words are phrased changed, not just the letters. For one thing, the writers of the Greek Septuagint refused to write the true original name of "JE". Supposedly they thought that it was too Holy to write or pronounce. They had this way of thinking because it had been illegal to write or pronounce his true Name during the captivities under the Assyrian & Babylonian empires. Their descendants thus were taught by the pagans that the name was never to be written or pronounced. Even after the captivity was over, they continued that practice, having forgotten why/how that custom came to be. They forgot how that the Assyrians changed their language. Even as most Mexicans today forget the lesson of history, that Spanish is NOT their native tongue. Therefore the LXX leaves out JEH/JE in this verse and in all verses. But they write a Greek phrase that has the same meaning.
This is the meaning of both the original Hebrew and the LXX Greek:
"I am JEH the beginning, currently self-existing, and eternally existing, JEH".
To say only "I AM, I AM", would be to deny that HE still exist both now and in the future. I AM is only present. But the phrase must mean the same as "the first and the last", and "the beginning and the end" and "the Alpha & the Omega". All of these phrases are different ways of saying the same thing as Exo.3:14 which must include pass, present and future. (Eternity).
