WHO IS ROI?

compiled by Dee Finney

3-30-08 - DREAM - I was working in my office, trying to get my work done.  I came to a piece of paper that was folded the long way. Not knowing what it was, I opened it and on it was a handwritten note from a long time friend, telling me I could call him at ___  1991.  The note stated that his sister Barbara and his friend Bob used to live there.

I didn't want to call before 6 p.m., not wanting to interrupt dinner, but the next time I looked at the clock, it was 7:55 p.m.

I reached for the telephone, which was a digital phone, and I had trouble balancing the piece of paper with the number on the telephone, and I struggled to hit the 1 9 9 1.  I don't recall dialing the 3 numbers that normally come before the 4 digits.

When the connection was made, a woman answered the phone.  She sounded angelic, and I pictured her as elderly with white hair.  I asked for the person I was calling, and she said, "Oh!  Barbara used to live here."

I woke up before I could comment in return.

I lay in the dark, thinking about the dream and Jehovah's voice boomed in my ear,  "ROI.!"

I was so stunned at the suddenness and loudness of the voice, I forgot to ask if there was a message.

NOTE:  The Bible verse that came up the most with regard to the name "Roi" was "God who sees" which refers to Gen. 16 where the Angel of the Lord speaks as if the angel was the Lord and Hagar is promised a child.

The very next night I dreamed that I woke up in a recovery room in a hospital after I had just given birth to a child. Though I can't say the two are connected for certain, the synchronicity/coincidence is remarkable.

This is not the first Jehovah message I have received.

Here are the others.

 9-29-04As I woke up, I heard a booming male voice which said:  "ISRAEL: THE MARRIAGE BOND!" "Jehovah! Is very hurt. He has built a nation which is being destroyed from inside. He would appreciate help from the United States to turn it around and Christianize it."

 6-3-98 - I woke up and instantly heard a telephone ring in my left ear. I mentally said, "I am ready for a message." I began to see a small graveyard. It was oval-shaped. A white arm and hand appeared and began digging a deep hole in the soil and bringing out objects which I eventually recognized to be the baby Jesus laying in a 'cradle' and surrounded by baby animals. I then saw another oval ring next to it and inside that ring, a full sized lamb and lion were laying down inside it...side by side.

2-5-07 - A VISIT FROM THE ANGEL OF THE LORD AND JEHOVAH!

I was in a garage somewhere with a female friends. Our cars were parked side by side.

We each had an infant and there was a man on the side who was going to bless the babies.

Since her car was open on top - more like a pick up truck and mine was closed on top, I carried my baby over to her car and lay her on her blanket on her car just long enough to be blessed, then picked up my baby and left the garage.

Inside the house, this same female friend was getting rid of things she didn't need anymore.  She handed me a shoebox full of little things and a lovely piece of white fabric that turned out to be the strapless over-gown for a wedding dress made of lacy ____ that was see-thru with little white dots all over it.

In order to wear it, one had to buy the satin underskirts and top and underwear.  I knew I would never wear anything strapless anyway, so I tried to think what I could use the fabric for - maybe like for curtains for a baby girl's bedroom.

I then looked in the shoebox, which had no top on it and it was all items women would use in the bathroom.  When I looked into the box all I could see was a pile of garden soil in the bottom and everything but a line of white tampons was contaminated by the soil.

So, I threw away everything but the clean box of tampons.  At my age, I don't need those either, but one never knows these days.

I looked out the window then, and saw the countryside and a mountain in the distance.  At the base of the mountain were many trees, cars, houses, trucks, and people.

All of a sudden, a pure white arm came down from the sky - long and stretchy it seemed and its hand picked up everything off the earth but the mountain. There was nothing left.

I woke up and the voice of JEHOVAH boomed into my left ear loudly -   "PEACE!!!"

NOTE:  Jehovah is believed to have a female consort.  These are the names she goes by:

For some time Ashtart under the name Ashtoreth seems to have been worshipped side by side with the Hebrew God as His consort; He was early on called Ba'al, a general title meaning "Lord", used in the area to refer to each people's particular patron God, though their real (and sometimes secret) names were different. This fell out of favor in time as the Hebrews transitioned to monotheism. Apparently they had a hard time with this, though, as Jehovah is forever chiding His people for "backsliding" and returning to the worship of Ba'al and Ashtoreth. Ashtoreth in the Bible is worshipped in groves called after Her asherah and may have been honored as a pillar of wood, or as manifest in the grove itself. In one tale from the Biblical book Judges, Jehovah has Gideon destroy his own father's shrines to Ba'al and Ashtoreth, which he does in the middle of the night under cover of darkness, as he was too scared of the repercussions to do it in broad daylight.

Ba'al was actually the nephew of Johovah/Enlil.

 Jehovah/Yahweh is a form of YHWH which originally represented the Heavenly Family - Y/El, father; H/Asherah, mother; W/He, son and H/Anath, daughter. Anath (Anahita in Persia) was Queen of the Heavens and her brother He, was King of the Heavens. He and his father El, merged to become Jehovah. Asherah/Ashtoreth (double serpents - wisdom) and Anath were then joined to become Jehovah's consort, the SHEKINAH/MATRONIT. Sarah (Princess), wife/sister of Abraham, revered as a goddess of health and fertility, is said to be embodied in Shekinah (Indwelling). Celts worshipped Shekinah at dolmens/cromlechs.
 The Holy of Holies in Solomon's Temple represented the womb of ASHTORETH/ASHERAH, who was also the Phoenician goddess of love and fruitfulness, Astarte in Greece and Rome, Atar Gatis (a mermaid) in Syria. Ashtoreth was identified with Greek goddesses Hecate (witchcraft) and Selene (moon = Roman Luna) - often associated with each other; Artemis (wild nature, harvest, hunting as Agrotora, wild animals especially bears as Kalliste, fishermen as Britomartis (Sweet Maiden, moon goddess, snake-mermaid)/Diktynna, (who may be one person or lovers) childbirth, chastity, youth and young women = Roman Diana, and Aphrodite (love/beauty = Roman Venus). Selene (who loved Endymion) had a sister Eos (Roman Aurora) goddess of dawn - both were daughters of Theia. The Phoenician goddess of the moon was Tanit. Creator goddesses have always been associated with the moon, for obvious reasons even to its control of tides and water - and horses too especially to the Celts, because of their moon shaped hoof prints. Ashtoreth was counterpart to Ishtar, (Isis in Egypt, Ashtart in Israel; Athtar in Arabia and Astar in Abyssinia - change to male!) Great Mother, goddess of fertility and Queen of Heaven who was chief goddess of the Akkadians, Assyrians and Babylonians (Mesopotamia/Iraq). Mara was goddess of the sea. To the Assyrians Ishtar represented the goddess of hunting and war. To the Babylonians she was represented by the evening or morning star Venus, Mother Goddess, naked with prominent breasts and often suckling a child. Also known as Queen Semiramis, whose mother was Derceto, a mermaid. OTHER PAGES ABOUT JEHOVAH ON THIS SITE

In the Bible, God is referred to in many different ways.  Here are some example:

Using the "Jehovah" interpretation: Jehovah-ropheka, "Jehovah that heals" (Exodus 15:26), Jehovah-meqaddeshkem, "Jehovah Who sanctifies you" (Exodus 31:13), Jehovah-tsabaoth, "Jehovah of hosts" (1 Samuel 1:3), "Jehovah-elyon, "Jehovah Most High (Psalm 7:17), Jehovah-roi, "Jehovah my shepherd (Psalm 23:1)

El is used over 200 times as a Name for God, often in combination as El, Eloah and Elyon. Many of the faithful people of God had it in their name e.g. Elijah ("The Lord is God"), Daniel ("The Lord is my Judge"). Another name for Jesus Christ was Immamuel (Matthew 1:23) which means "The Lord is with us."

As with El Bethel, El 'Olam, El Shadday, El Berith, Elohim and numerous other formations in the Bible as translated into English, El Roi is a descriptive epithet for god using the word "El" for "God" and another modifier indicating a quality of God.

In the Hebrew bible book of Genesis, Hagar called the divine protagonist, El Roi. Roi means “seeing". To Hagar, God revealed Himself as “The God Who sees".

Hagar is a distraught, frightened, pregnant, non-Israelite slave girl who encounters God in a desert, and feeling she has been miracuously aided by Him, calls him this name. It is possible that the construction using 'el' and the specific construction 'el roi' is drawn from Hagar's cultural understanding of and name for god rather than being an Israelite construction.

El Roi: The name El means “God, god, mighty one, strength". It is used to denote “either the generic name ‘god’ or ‘the God’ of Israel". In some instances of a significant encounter with Elohim, believers would form a compound of El and a word which described God’s revelation of Himself in that encounter.

Shaddai is found almost 50 times in the Old Testament, and is usually translated as Almighty. It was first recorded when God spoke to Abraham: "And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, The Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I Am the Almighty God; walk before Me, and be thou perfect. And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly." (Genesis 17:1-2 KJV)

Theos -In the New Testament "God" is used for the original Greek word Theos

LIST OF THE NAMES OF GOD IN THE OLD TESTAMENT AND WHY THE NAMES OF GOD ARE OFTEN SPELLED DIFFERENTLY

(Scriptures given are the first mention of that name of God in the Bible)

 Jehovah the self-existing one Genesis 2:4 El Shaddai the God of nourishment Genesis 28:3 Jehovah-Roi the God who sees Genesis 16:13 El Roi is the God who sees. Genesis 16: 13-14 (Hagar) gave this name to the LORD who spoke to her: "You are the God who sees me," for she said, "I have now seen [c] the One who sees me." Olam the everlasting God Isaiah 40:28 Adonai Master or LORD Malachi 1:6 Jehovah-Jireh the LORD will provide Genesis 22:13,14 Jehovah-Nissi the LORD our banner Exodus 17:15 Jehovah-Shalom the LORD our peace Judges 6:24 Jehovah-Sabaoth the LORD of Hosts Isaiah 6:3 Jehovah-Maccaddeschcem (M’Kaddesh) the LORD my Sanctifier Exodus 31:13 Jehovah-Rohi the LORD my Shepherd Psalm 23:1 Jehovah-Tsidkenu the LORD our righteousness Jeremiah 23:6 Jehovah-Sammah the LORD Who is present Ezekiel 48:35 Jehovah-Rapha the LORD our healer Exodus 15:26 Immanuel God with us Isaiah 7:14

Why are the Names of God often spelled differently?

The spellings of the various names of God differ from time to time simply because they are variations of the same name.

We have the same type of thing in English:

 Robert Rob Robb David Davida Davide Dave Sharon Sherren Gail Gayle Gale Moses Moshie Moshe Ezekiel Zeke

No one form is more correct than another.  They are all derivatives of the same root word.

Isaac and the life of prayer and meditation

+ “Now that Isaac had come from Beer-Lahai-roi, and was dwelling in Negeb. And Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening;” (Gen. 24:62,63).

+ “After the death of Abraham God blessed Isaac his son. And Isaac dwelt at Beer-Lahai-roi (Gen. 25:11).

The Bible does not provide details that are meaningless or of no value to our spiritual life.  The name ‘Lahai-roi’ means ‘vision’.  Origen, the Christian theologian and scholar, said that all the blessing God gave to Isaac was his dwelling at Beer-Lahai-roi, and that the blessing of dwelling at Beer-roi is a great blessing for who may understand it.  Origen then, after citing a number of visions witnessed by holy men in the OT, such as Jacob’s vision in Bethel which he described saying,“This is none other than the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven” (Gen. 28:17), as well as the visions of Isaiah (Is. 1:1), and Nahum (Na. 1:1), went on to say, “But as of Isaac, he was considered worthy of the blessing of dwelling at the well of vision, i.e. Beer-Lahai-roi.”  Origen added that, “such a blessing can be received by everyone whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and on His Law he meditates day and night” (Ps. 1:2).

From the little we know about Isaac, we realize that prayer was a main theme in his life and that he depended on prayer in solving his problems, for example, when he prayed for ‎Rebekah his wife who was barren and she conceived Esau and Jacob (Gen. 25:21).

Isaac followed the example of his father Abraham.  Wherever he went, Isaac built an altar for the Lord and pitched his tent there (Gen. 26:25).  He was always guided by the Lord who appeared to him several times, comforting and blessing him.  When there was a famine in Canaan and Isaac had to depart, the angel of God appeared to him and prevented him from going to Egypt, and advised him to go to Gerar (which lies just few miles from the city of Gaza) (Gen. 26:1-6). When he left Gerar and went to Beer-Sheba, the Lord appeared to him again (Gen. 26:23-25).

EL ROI - THE GOD WHO SEES
From the Sermon on the Mount - Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 6

The real key to success of this kind of giving is found in the phrase: thy Father which seeth in secret. . . shall reward you. Giving by faith, out of a cheerful heart, depends upon our total confidence in that fact that God does indeed see us and knows our needs. The God who is there, sees in secret that which no man may observe, and that God rewards His own. The individual person is to give, not in order to receive reward, but that his love might be expressed to God who shall reward him.  Our giving to the work of Christ spreads the message of the gospel throughout the world. Notice again, that these verses certainly do not condemn public giving, but rather they speak against giving out of the wrong attitude and for the wrong motive.

# 1991 - A Palindromic number

A palindromic number is a 'symmetrical' number like 16461, that remains the same when its digits are reversed. The term palindromic is derived from palindrome, which refers to a word like rotor that remains unchanged under reversal of its letters. The first palindromic numbers are:

0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66, 77, 88, 99, 101, 111, 121, 131, 141, 151, 161, 171, 181, 191, … (sequence A002113 in OEIS).

Palindromic numbers receive most attention in the realm of recreational mathematics. A typical problem asks for numbers that possess a certain property and are palindromic. For instance,

Buckminster Fuller referred to palindromic numbers as Scheherazade numbers in his book Synergetics, because Scheherazade was the name of the story-telling wife in the 1001 Nights.

It is fairly straightforward to appreciate that in any base there are infinitely many palindromic numbers, since in any base the infinite sequence of numbers written (in that base) as 101, 1001, 10001, etc. (in which the nth number is a 1, followed by n zeros, followed by a 1) consists of palindromic numbers only.

## Formal definition

Although palindromic numbers are most often considered in the decimal system, the concept of palindromicity can be applied to the natural numbers in any numeral system. Consider a number n > 0 in base b ≥ 2, where it is written in standard notation with k+1 digits ai as:

$n=\sum_{i=0}^ka_ib^i$

with, as usual, 0 ≤ ai < b for all i and ak ≠ 0. Then n is palindromic if and only if ai = aki for all i. Zero is written 0 in any base and is also palindromic by definition.

An alternative but equivalent definition is as follows. In an arbitrary but fixed base b, a number n is palindromic if and only if:

• n consists of a single digit, or
• n consists of two equal digits, or
• n consists of three or more digits, the first and last digits are equal, and the number obtained by stripping the first and last digits off n is itself palindromic.
