"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)

Be`er-Sheva (Beersheba): City & Desert Wilderness
Unity Consciousness #560


Be`er-sheva (Beersheba) is a city in the Israel and Canaan of Jewish-Christian Bibles. It is located near what was called the desert wilderness of Tzin (Zin).

Beersheba Is At The Southern End Of Territory of Judah

1. When speaking of all of Israel, several verses make reference to “from Dan to Beersheba” or “from Beersheba to Dan.” This is an indication of the northern and southern borders of Israel.

2. Beersheba is named as one of the cities at the outer part of the tribe of Judah and its border with Edom. This is also south. (Joshua 15; 2 Samuel 24)

3. Beersheba is part of the territory of Judah. Generally speaking, the southern border of Judah is from the south end of the Dead Sea to the River of Egypt on what is now called the Sinai peninsula. (Joshua 19; 15)

4. Based on #2-3 above, Beersheba is west of the Jordan River.

5. Beersheba Desert is part of the larger Zin Desert. (Joshua 15:1)

6. “Avraham got up early in the morning, took bread and a skin of water and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child; then he sent her away. After leaving, she wandered in the desert around Be’er-Sheva.” (Genesis 21:14)

7. The tribe of Simeon was given the city of Beersheba and other areas in the south as the inheritance of the descendants of Shim‘on (Simeon). (Joshua 19)

8. From Beersheba to Horeb, the mountain of God, is a 40 day and night journey for one person, traveling lightly. (1 Kings 19)

9. At the time of Abraham, Beersheba was not part of Philistine territory. (Genesis 21:31-34)

10. At the time of Abraham Beersheba was part of Philistine territory. (Genesis 21:31-34)

11. Beersheba is the land on which both Abraham and Isaac lived. (Genesis 22:19; 26; 46:1)

How Did Be`er-sheva Get Its Name?

Version 1:
Abraham made an oath with Abimelech. Using seven lambs as payment for right to use a well Abraham dug. Somehow Be’er-Sheva means two things using the same words: well of seven and well of an oath. (Genesis 21:3134)

Version 2:
Yitz’chak’s (Isaac's) servants dug a well, found water and told Isaac. Isaac called it Shiv‘ah [oath, seven],. This is why city is called Be’er-Sheva (well of seven, well of an oath). (Genesis 26)
CJB Words Become KJV Words:
H: Yitz’chak becomes Isaac

Son of God Worship Is Sun & Star Worship
Unity Consciousness #559


Malachi 3:19-20 (CJB) “For the day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the proud and evildoers will be stubble; the day that is coming will set them ablaze,” says Adonai-Tzva’ot, “and leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings;...”
Malachi 4:1-2 (KJV) “For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; ...”

Revelation 22:16 (CJB) ““I, Yeshua, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the Messianic communities. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright Morning Star”
(KJV) “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”

How Is It Any Different From...

Deuteronomy 17:3 (CJB) “by going and serving other gods and worshipping them, the sun, the moon, or anything in the sky — something I have forbidden --“
(KJV) “And hath gone and served other gods, and worshipped them, either the sun, or moon, or any of the host of heaven, which I have not commanded;”

Praise God, A Sun

“For Adonai, God, is a sun and a shield; Adonai bestows favor and honor; he will not withhold anything good from those whose lives are pure.” (Psalm 84:12)

“Yeshua answered him, “The Tanakh says, ‘Worship Adonai your God and serve him only.’” (Luke 4:8)

“I and the Father are one.” (John 10:30)

Son of God worship is Sun & Star worship, at least the sun and the star that Father and Son say they are.

Worship Adonai, God & Baal & Not Go To Hell
Unity Consciousness #558


The main reason we can worship Adonai, God & Baal and not go to Hell is because Adonai is God is Baal.

Adonai is Baal

2 Samuel 5:20
“So David went to Ba‘al-P’ratzim and defeated them there. He said, “Adonai has broken through my enemies for me like a river breaking through its banks.” This is why he called the place Ba‘al-P’ratzim [Lord of breaking through].”

1 Chronicles 14:11
“So they went up to Ba‘al-P’ratzim, and David defeated them there. David said, “God has broken through my enemies by my power like a river breaking through its banks.” This is why they called the place Ba‘al-P’ratzim [Lord of breaking through].”

Ba'al Basically Means Master

Hosea 2:18
“On that day,” says Adonai “you will call me Ishi [My Husband]; you will no longer call me Ba‘ali [My Master].”

How close is Ba'ali to Ba'alim and Baali to Baalim?

It's awfully strange for a name such as Ba'al (Baal) to be so bad that the Israelites used the name of Baal in many places or perhaps even named the places themselves – which there's plenty of reason to know this is likely the case, that Baal was not such a bad name after all, even to the point that Adonai once used it because a form of the word Baal, Baali, carries the meaning of master.
