Yahweh Sabaoth is not El, though, it means Yahweh, lord of hosts. Yahweh is a son of El, a little known fact, so he was the god of ancient Israel,
(Adonai) tsevaot means approximately at first glance the rule maker. Many descriptions of god are given in the books of Moses and each will get you
further in your own understanding of what god is. Pharaoh was adonai tsevaot to the israeli slaves before they said "no". To Moses, adonai tsevaot
means something more interesting because his understanding of his alphabet is clearer than mine or yours. What I do know and will share here is that
all appellations of god in the bible are references to one god, and the choice of the feminine in tsevaot has the same significance here and in
"books" vs "spheres", here "colours" and "snip" haha gotta love mysticism sometimes: books are "sepharim" masculine plural and spheres are "sephirot"
feminine plural, same word, when tsevaim means & c. This isn't for you gnostic dude anymore but I know the OP said the bahir was the root of the book
yetzira so I had to expand on this.
Ten commandments, not too much data to accurately remember, just one per sphere or finger.
Commandment one: there is only one god.
Yhvh isn't a son of anything, and the appellation when either understood or correctly translated makes it quite clear. Dividing believers as your
teacher is attempting to do yields the nastiest results. Call it bang, call it allah, call it el, call it baal or zeus or FSM, or even if you're one
to call it sex or money or flags, it's still that which is/shall/was.
A correct understanding of that which you attempt to divide is the key to heaven, and understanding of the alphabet is said to have been worth life to
Odin himself, who found both on Ygdrasil logically enough.
You often claim to have studied a lot, and I see no reason to question this, but it is evident that you are missing an element here, which is the
unity of the divine and the nature of the names of god throughout the many believers and their respective traditions.
Abraham worships one god, and dividing it will only lead you to misconception of his teachings, which considering the time and effort you seem to
invest in them would be a shame. The god of Moses is the god of Abraham, there is no division in their accounts, which is in my opinion a major reason
for their popularity through time so far.
Also, people read this website, and some may be set back by accepting what you say without verification. You have a responsibility toward the young
and the gullible in matters of theology: as a guideline try to unite where you could divide.
Oh and OP: The Dan-ish mariners of both yore and to day have interesting oak-related tales, that not being from Scandinavia myself I wouldn't want to
spoil by inaccurately remembering or translating since Bokmål seems to have less secrets to you.
Yahweh is a son of El
You're thinking of superman, who also is clark kent. Good ole tetra is elohim is adonai is & c.
