The first use of the term Hebrew is used to describe Abram;
“Then a fugitive came and told Abram the Hebrew.”
The next place this term is used to describe Joseph, and then to describe the nation of Israel.
Abram’s linage has carried this term, it is tied to the spirit of Abraham, one who like Abraham moves in obedience to God by Faith.
Faith is the means of transitioning out of our human reasoning, traditions, and nature into the heart and mind of God and His Kingdom.
Hebrew indicates one who is a sojourner, one who by Faith moves by the voice of God, forsaking the world and its ways in order to relate to God.
The term Hebrew is interchangeable with Israel, as this is also tied to Abraham as Jacob’s name was changed after his direct encounter with God.
Do not get caught up in the physical or literal expression of these terms for God has much to express to the whole family of man in these terms. For in the truest sense they represent His people all of mankind.
“For neither is circumcision anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation.
And those who will walk by this rule, peace and mercy be upon them, and upon the Israel of God.”
All of us are known by God in these two terms, for this is our true nature as Spirit beings in His Kingdom.
