The Elect

Verse List:  elect (ba-KEER) Strongs # H972 and G1588

בּחיר      Bet-chet-yud-resh     house enclosed by the hand of the head”

Interesting word picture and word study. Can the “elect,” “the house enclosed by the hand of the Head,” in the gospel of Isaiah be different from the “elect” that Yeshua points to in Matthew, Mark, and Luke?  Can the “faith of  God’s elect,” which Paul claims to follow, be different from the faith taught in Isaiah’s gospel? Or Yeshua’s gospel?  Why does Peter call the strangers “elect”?

  1. These scriptures instill more hope in me than I already had. Praise our King that he has looked out for us from the beginning and he will unto the end.

  2. HaleluYah. I am just surprised while i am reading about this word “Elect”, we just recently studied hebrew and begin it with the alephbet and we enjoy every meaning of the letters cause it helps us understand more the deeper meaning of the Scriptures. It just also happen that we got a new car and have a conduction number YR 4679 and we call our new car in hebrew name as Yod-Resh which stands for letter YR, i just realized that it just matches with the word “Bakeer” since we consider our car as our second house that is properly Enclosed by the Hand of the Head. Praise Yahweh for Having us as one of the Elects.
