Hebrew meanings of the Soul
Neshamah - Ruach - Nefesh
After my last email today on the topic of the Soulless Drone Humanoids vs the Ensouled people recently discussed on the Freeman Show, someone sent me a question that I knew would come of it.
They wanted to know if the various Hebrew words for soul all mean the same thing among the various Genesis accounts.
HERE is the email that generated the need for these clarifications:
As I am going through and adding my retranslated Genesis texts into my new Creator’s Calendar guide book, I thought everyone might like to consider this within the paradigm of the Souled vs. UN-souled beings, both animal and humanoid.
We all know HOW it’s been sold for a very long time. So, take these next texts within the confines and understanding that the ancient Hebrew language is supremely concrete and always very specific within its context, UNLIKE pretty much all other languages other than Chinese.
Gen 7:15 “And they went with Noah into the ark, two by two of all flesh, wherein is the breath of life. [Only those with Souls!]
You see, we have already been told concretely in early Genesis that specific animals have souls, i.e. – Breath of life = Chai Nefesh = Living soul. Then, later after Genesis-1, we are shown that the physical bodies we now have were imbued with that exact same Chai Nefesh, but as I have shown in my other works, NOT for the reasons most of mankind have been led to believe.
My point here with these later Gen 7:15 text, is that this line – wherein exists the Living-Soul – is totally redundant and fully unnecessary in the Hebrew.
We already KNOW that all living things have a soul, right? Or so they tried to falsely Narrate to everyone. So, then, why stipulate this again specifically unless they were trying to make a very specific point? - THAT NOT ALL BEINGS HAVE SOULS!
If all beings have living souls, then why tell us more than once? Much less tell us again in that sentence which could have and should have ended at - And they went with Noah into the ark, two by two of all flesh. ….Oh, and by the way, ONLY the ones with souls!
So, now let's look at the main Hebrew words used within the Tanak in connection with the "soul."
NESHAMAH – From the oldest explanation, and in my opinion still the best – Neshamah does NOT refer to the Living-Soul directly. Neshamah is the root POWER or ELEMENT, that was/is the essence of the Macro-soul of the Creator. This is what we see the Creator exuding out and into the later, Genesis chapter 2 Trinty-6 bodies made by the Fallen ones.
RUACH – Literally translated means WIND or BLOWING. Thus, AFTER the Creative Neshamah leaves the Creator Source, it turns into this Ruach, being a powerful, condensed wind until it reaches the intended vessel. It, of course, contains all of the living and creative elements of the Eternal One and all that He is, but yet in transit and unrealized as such until it reaches the intended target.
NEFESH – This one tends to get more confusing depending on which Jewish sage you read. The explanation I received and have not found a better one yet is, that the Nefesh is the culmination of all three parts and thus it is the final and completed, soul of life.
Gen 2:7 “And elohim formed man out of dirt from the ground, and he [ruach]-breathed into his nostrils the living Neshamah, and then man became a living Nefesh.”
BUT IN GENESIS 1 we see a variation that most have explained away to become false doctrine:
Gen 1:20 “And the Prime Creator said, Let the waters swarm with schools having [nefesh chai - a soul of life; and let the birds fly over the earth, on the face of the expanse of the heavens.”
Gen 1:21 “And the Prime Creator, created the great sea animals, and all that creeps, having the [nefesh Chai] - living soul, which swarmed the waters, according to its kind; and every bird with wing according to its kind. And the Prime Creator saw that it was in perfect order.”
Gen 1:24 “And the Prime Creator said, 'Let the earth bring forth the [nefesh chai] - living souls after its kind, cattle and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after its kind:' and it is so.
Gen 1:26 “And the Prime Creators speech made man, an eidolon, a resemblance; Let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth.
Gen 1:27 "And the Prime Creator made man an eidolon to resemble Himself. He created them male and female."
Gen 1:28 "And the Prime Creator blessed them, and said to them; ‘Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fish of the seas, and over birds of the heavens, and over all beasts creeping on the earth." [This command was given to the animals, NOT the Living-Soul-Body “Eidolons” He created].
From the following texts, we also know by the overall context that the Creator DID NOT create the souls of man to kill, destroy, hurt or usurp the free will of any of the created animals for food or otherwise. For if that were so, this next part which very clearly outlines the diet for all man and all animals would not have been given.
Gen 1:29 "And the Prime Creator said; ‘Behold, I have given you every plant seeding seed which is on the face of all the earth, and every tree in which is the fruit of a tree seeding seed; it WILL be food for you, 30 and, for every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a [Chai-Nefesh] - living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so."
Gen 1:31 "And the Prime Creator saw everything that He had made and behold, it was in perfect order. And there existed evening. Then existed morning. Day six."
Adding more confusion is all the rabbinical “opinion”, mostly generated by ego, and span the length and breadth of this flat earth. Don’t get all hung up on their opinions, they are just that. ADDED opinions driven by ego after other ego-driven rabbis decided to have an additional opinion, that of course needed to be countered by yet more opinions. ONE Up-Manship is all it was. The only rabbinical opinion that I will generally read and consider at all is from Maimonides, and then only if I can be reasonably sure that his opinion wasn’t augmented by the rabbinate after his death. Some were, as I have shown regarding the true name of the Creator in my books.
All of the Genesis texts above have been re-translated slightly more literally so that the true context can be seen. You have seen two major changes in the Genesis 1 texts that really bring out the accurate meaning. The English versions have MANY words added that are NOT in the Hebrew texts at all and change the meaning drastically.
I used the word – [Speech] because it's appropriate there and throughout the entire context of Genesis 1 from the beginning. He SPOKE everything into existence.
[Eidolon] is another change, but few understand its meaning. [Apparition] is another way to think of this word, and perfectly suited for envisioning what a Living-Soul in its original Soul-Light-Body looks like. And of course, in our soul bodies, we are and appear in His image.
EIDOLON - A supernatural appearance of a person or thing, especially a ghost; a specter or phantom; a wraith or apparition, etc.
