Genesis, Chapter 18, verse 14-16
14 Nothing is impossible for Yahweh. I shall come back to you at the same time next year and Sarah will have a son.' 15 Sarah said, 'I did not laugh,' lying because she was afraid. But he replied, 'Oh yes, you did laugh.' 16 From there the men set out and arrived within sight of Sodom, with Abraham accompanying them to speed them on their way.
Nothing is impossible for he who is. According to Doctors Michael Roizen and Mehment Oz, Yahweh is nearly unpronounceable sounds that are made in our first and last breaths made in life. At the first deep inspire of air comes the sound YAH and at the last wheeze WEH. He is the alpha and the omega; the beginning and the end. When I was a youth of 20 I had the great honor of serving in the Navy Seabee’s and went to build the South Pole Station in Antarctica and breathing was difficult in the frozen thin air, here is an excerpt from my book, “The Ice is Nice and Chee-Chee is Peachy.
Most of the Steelworkers and I were assigned to shoveling snow that had accumulated from the winter. As you worked, it was so ice-cold that frost formed on your beard, face and hair from the vapor of your very breath. Living there, I could really reflect on the statement: “God is closer to you than the very air you breathe”. Being there gave new meaning to that. Your breath was always with you; you could not escape it; even if you tried. Your breath almost caressed you as you went about your day. I thought, “Are we really loved that much?” and then I reflected on John 3:16 from the bible and it seemed to make more sense to me.
It is interesting to note that when we laugh we are forcing our breath out. Be Not Afraid. Also, today is the 11th day of Christmas. The 11 pipers piping is a sign for the eleven faithful apostles. It is interesting to note that Judas’ sin was due to fear, greed, pride and envy. Today would be a good day to read about the remaining 11 pipers and their courage to create a Kingdom of God that changed the world.
