HEBREW UNDERSTANDING :
Result of search for "parent": 539 'aman aw-man' a primitive root; properly, to build up or support; to foster as a parent or nurse; figuratively to render (or be) firm or faithful, to trust or believe, to be permanent or quiet; morally to be true or certain; once (Isa. 30:21; interchangeable 541) to go to the right hand:--hence, assurance, believe, bring up, establish, + fail, be faithful (of long continuance, stedfast, sure, surely, trusty, verified), nurse, (-ing father), (put), trust, turn to the right.
SCRIPTURE UNDERSTANDING : Everyone, therefore, who shall confess Me before men, him I shall also confess before My Father who is in the shamayim. But whosoever shall deny Me before men; him I shall also deny before My Father who is in the shamayim. Do not think that I have come to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
For I have come to bring division, a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law- and a mans enemy's are those of his own household.
HE WHO LOVES FATHER OR MOTHER MORE THAN ME IS NOT WORTHY OF ME, AND HE WHO LOVES SON OR DAUGHTER MORE THAN ME IS NOT WORTHY OF ME. ( Matt 10:32-37)
Firstly we are looking at the meaning of the word "PARENT," in the Hebrew language, then a description of the word "PARENT," in Turah. We see the state of the Hebrew society when Yahusha was ministering, the Jews already knew the meaning of "PARENT," in their own language, as well as Turah Instruction on how to raise your children. Problem is the Jews were not following Turah Instruction and families were in an unclean state, because of their behaviour against Turah. Yahusha said, "unfortunately a man's enemies are those of his own household," if they do not agree with Turah instruction.
Yahusha set the record straight and said, "it is all about love, Our Love Priorities must be in order." We are allowed to love others, but if we love others more than we love Yahusha, we are not worthy of Him. If we do not love Yahusha before others, we won't be capable of living Turah, and will render ourselves unclean as well as our families.
Yahusha expects certain characteristic behaviour from His chosen, so His followers will be recognised by their Turah behaviour. IS YOUR HOUSEHOLD A CLEAN AND EASILY RECOGNISED TABERNACLE, AS A TURAH INSTRUCTED HOME, LIVING IN THE PEACE AND JOY OF HIS PRESENCE. It is all about having our love priorities in order.
