Sah-Tahn is Hebrew S-ThN. It means Oppose, opponent or adversary, and is the root of the word Satan in Hebrew. Hebrew is like a tree. Roots make
branches that bear fruit (other words connected to the branch). Before this word, we have SThM, which is the word hate. Merchandise and Trade are
from the same root, SHhR. You also get the beating of the heart, as in the heart going to and fro. In Job, Satan was going to and fro on the Earth.
What is Earth? Soil. I have covered this before on ATS. Ear is a seed. Hear means behold, or the added letter Hey, which means behold. HearT adds
the letter Tav, or plowman's mark. The Heart in Hebrew is a young stag, or deer. Cor in Latin is the Heart, but in Hebrew, it is the bushel basket
to be filled. Moving the Hey to the end of the plowman's mark, you have EartH. HearT and Earth are soil for seed, or Words from letters.
What is the purpose of the Earth? House of prayer, or a place to develop the heart. Merchandise and Trade are the marks of the adversary, or the one
who opposes God.
Matthew 21:13 "It is written," he said to them, "'My house will be called a house of prayer,' but you are making it 'a den of robbers.'"
“‘You were the seal of perfection,
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.
13 You were in Eden,
the garden of God;
every precious stone adorned you:
carnelian, chrysolite and emerald,
topaz, onyx and jasper,
lapis lazuli, turquoise and beryl.
Your settings and mountings[c] were made of gold;
on the day you were created they were prepared.
14 You were anointed as a guardian cherub,
for so I ordained you.
You were on the holy mount of God;
you walked among the fiery stones.
15 You were blameless in your ways
from the day you were created
till wickedness was found in you.
16 Through your widespread trade
you were filled with violence,
and you sinned.
What is the God of Babylon? Selfishness, or the animal nature of the Beast. What is the mark of the Beast? Selfishness, or what is produced by
knowledge (fruit of knowledge / technology).
The question above is a hard question to answer. We are all surrounded by the fruit of commerce and trade.
Satan is Desire to take. God's will is to give only. When Jesus overturns the tables of the moneychangers and the benches of the ones selling doves,
he is foreshadowing our day and age.
Today, the moneychangers (bankers) financial tables are turned to debt. The peacemakers (Doves) have no rest (Benches).
Who do we love in this world? We know ourselves by our fruit.
What are the roots past S-ThN?
SKL - Understand - The ability to consider a situation with comprehension in order to be successful or prosperous. The words Understanding and
Benefit are both on this branch.
SLHh - Forgive. Lifting one out of a debt.
