and Yahuah Elohim built that which he had taken from the side of the man into a woman and brought her unto the man.
One of the most discomforting things about being a woman of “faith” is not understanding who and what we are. For years and years I have wondered “why did Yah (God) make me a woman?" Society has made the woman and her counterpart, view her differences as a negative. We hate everything about our make up. We hate the womb, we hate our subcutaneous fat, we hate our cycles, and ultimately everything that makes us woman, we despise. And the sad thing is that we are not alone. Our men are conditioned to amplify and degrade us for the very same reasons. I do not think that this is on purpose, but it has been done with purpose. When the meaning of a thing, and the culture of a people is stripped away we are left grasping for straws and defining things by someone else foreign to our “nature” and it spins us into self hate and confusion. For balance sake I will deviate slightly from the normal format of english and Greek definitions and deal only in the Hebrew. If you are not familiar with the language there is a chart at the top that can be downloaded for your keeping and referencing in the future.
When Yah created man and woman he created them EQUAL. Different purposes but EQUAL. The reason being is because Yah split his essence which in our finite world we refer to as (Feminine and Masculine). Brother Yzu of IBRMath does a very good study on this portion. So I will post the link if you need to reference what I mean before you move forward.
Male and Female:
When you study words and the Hebrew language you will find that all things have significance. When Yah created man and woman he did two different yet complimentary things. He built woman and he formed man. There are two different english words here and there are also two different Hebrew words. The word built is the hebrew word (banah) and the word formed is the Hebrew word (yatzar). Today we are dealing with the woman and how she is built and how the holy language shows the purpose and “role” if you will of the woman. For balance sake I will challenge you to do your personal study on what the form and function of the man was in this particular context.
The word Banah is spelled Bet/ Nun/ Hey (בנה). The first letter of the word in pictograph Hebrew (oldest form of Hebrew with pictures as its letters). looks like this
