The Platform of Fame
" THE PLATFORM OF FAME."
What is a "platform" or "fame" in the Hebrew, and how does it relate to today's generation ?
1). PLATFORM. 4608 ma`aleh mah-al-eh' from 5927; an elevation, i.e. (concretely) acclivity or platform; abstractly (the relation or state) a rise or (figuratively) priority:--ascent, before, chiefest, cliff, that goeth up, going up, hill, mounting up, stairs.
2). FAME. Result of search for "fame": 4110 mahalal mah-hal-awl' from 1984; fame:--praise.
8034 shem shame a primitive word (perhaps rather from 7760 through the idea of definite and conspicuous position; Compare 8064); an appellation, as a mark or memorial of individuality; by implication honor, authority, character:--+ base, (in-)fame(-ous), named(-d), renown, report.
These two ancient Hebrew words are greatly desired and very much in play in todays society, just as they have always been throughout history.King Solomon said, There is nothing done that hasn't already been done, nothing is new under the son.
LOVERS OF SELF.
Today's society are seeking a "PLATFORM OF FAME" through social media. There are many children already who are multi millionaires on social media. The youth are being swallowed up in this conquest for a platform of fame. Every path we ever trod full of knowledge, morality and experience is useless to them, "because we are only us," and have no real value to them, except support. We have no rights to criticise their path, but they have every right to sue us. It is not only children but so called adults are the same.It is just like the prophecy in Matt 24. children will be disobedient to parents and lovers of self.These are some of the signs of the end of the ages.
This is such a powerful medium which has taken our families, and there is nothing we can really do but pray, only Yahusha can save our loved ones. There again He is the one who chooses his bride.
