Ezer Kenegdo in Kansas City in August
by Skip Moen, D. Phil.

Thanks to Sandy Smail, Pam Staley and Jane Diffenderfer, I will be speaking in Kansas City on August 18-19.  This conference is about the ‘ezer kenegdo, the foundation of all relationships.  We will examine the Genesis text, Paul’s use of these ideas in the apostolic writings and what we have learned since the publication of Guardian Angel.  We will also have some hands-on exercises to help us apply the concepts.  The role women play, and the blessing they are for their husbands, is vital.  Don’t miss this!

Sandy tells me that there is another very large conference occurring in Kansas City on the same weekend.  That means travel and hotel issues.  So she has blocked rooms at the hotel for people coming from out of town.  But you need to let her know your plans.  Please contact Sandy ASAP.

Here is the web site (CLICK HERE) and the contact info.

Guardian Angel: A postscript

Posted by on Feb 16, 2017 in All About Women, Ezer Kenegdo | 0 comments

Guardian Angel is a terrifying book for men. It shouldn’t be, but it is. And not for all men, it seems. Some men just get it. Their relationships with their wives are on such solid footing that they recognize the blessing a wife can be and they welcome the biblical validation. But not most men.

Women, on the other hand, read Guardian Angel and feel comforted. They realize, sometimes for the first time, that their instincts for nurturing, care, protection and correction are godly, purposefully designed into the very fabric of who they are as women. They read Guardian Angel and feel empowered. At last they have biblical affirmation of their uniqueness, their strength, their clarity for God’s purposes. They read Guardian Angel and feel fulfilled. Now they see that the history of the Church has deliberately throttled their capabilities and their aspirations. Now they know that God wants them, needs them and plans for them to be vital contributors to His Kingdom.

But most men read Guardian Angel and feel fear. Of course, if they are open-minded enough to actually follow the argument and the exegesis, they will agree that the typical Church view of women is not biblical, that God has designed women to uniquely represent His purposes in specific spheres of influence and that they are intended to be a blessing, not a curse, to their husbands. But this doesn’t really help. It sets up a great schism of cognitive dissonance, that abyss where I know what is true but am unable to put it into action. Men are afraid to let women play the role they know God intended because to do so would mean setting aside control and, more importantly, the hope of filling their own felt needs. This fear is so powerful that men either reject the biblical teaching of Guardian Angel or they submit to the newly discovered role of their wives but hide who they really are behind impenetrable walls of numbing behavior.

I realize that this “analysis” seems too academic. It’s time for real examples. And the best person to use as an example is the author of the book since I know him better than anyone else in the world.

I wrote Guardian Angel because I saw the travesty of the typical treatment and theological bias toward to women. As I read Scripture, especially the Hebrew text of Genesis, it became clear to me that God’s design was radically different than religious practice, no matter what major religion one examined. I hoped to clarify the original design in order to provide inspiration and validation for women—and as a result, vastly improve relationships with husbands. But I underestimated the resistance two thousand years of cultural training can create. I know how this most vital relationship is supposed to work, but I find myself in constant internal conflict over what I know to be true but am afraid to allow. It’s important for me to understand why I feel such resistance, especially since it is not over disagreement about the meaning of the biblical texts. What I discovered is emotional sabotage.

I grew up in a world where men don’t cry. In fact, not only do they not cry, they do their level best to remain aloof from emotion. Feelings are frighteningly out of control. Of course, I still want to feel good, but I don’t want the equally possible experience of feeling helpless, insignificant, worthless or governed. I want to be in charge of my world, not in some megalomaniacal way, but in a way that allows me to manage the world so that I have a reasonable chance at personal happiness. I don’t need all the power. I’m smart enough to see the anarchist behind such a desire. What I want is enough power so that I feel good about my life. That, of course, means exercising control over others. In my world, a man who is pushed along by other people is somehow defective. He is less than a man. He has failed.

What I realize now, in principle, is that this is the natural growth of the yetzer ha’ra, the motivating force that causes me to want to change the world to meet my needs. In its most basic form, it is absolutely necessary for life. I want shelter, but not just a sheet of corrugated metal on pieces of shipping crates. I want shelter that I can be proud of, that comforts me. I want food. Not sustenance. Meals! Good ones (at least sometimes). I want clothing that speaks about who I feel I am. And I want a wife who satisfies me. Ultimately I want children who love me and whom I love and a purpose for living that reaches beyond staying alive. What I discover, however, is that as these basic needs are fulfilled, my motivating energy expands to embrace more desires. One car becomes two. One vacation becomes many. One gourmet meal becomes several. One sexual experience becomes the desire for more—and better. The exercise of my yetzer ha’ra pushes me to control more and more of the world around me so that my desires, now categorized as “needs,” will continue to be fulfilled.

The ‘ezer kenegdo is a threat to all of this. She reins me in—for my own good, of course, since she is God’s brake on my speeding path toward self-in-control. But if often doesn’t feel like it is for my own good because she opposes the aggression of my yetzer ha’ra. I have a hard time submitting to her godly advice even if I know it is from God because underneath all this is my desire to have it my way. Perhaps the principal role of the ‘ezer kenegdo is simply to be there, to be a present physical reminder that I am not God and that He has in fact provided a way for me to acknowledge what submission really feels like.

So the ‘ezer kenegdo is a threat—but she is a glorious, heavenly threat because she is a threat to my constant temptation toward idolatry, that is, the worship of myself as the one in control. And what I discover in the process of allowing her to actually do what she was designed to do (to nurture, protect, provide and chastise me), is that this is what love really is, not “head over heels” emotional fantasy but rather the day-to-day lesson of mutual cooperation and intimate fellowship.

It just takes a long time for me to really undo all those years of training that opposed the Genesis design. Please forgive me along the way. I’m trying.

Help needed

Posted by on Feb 15, 2017 in All Posts, Family Affair, Our Family | 5 comments

Jim & I find ourselves in the uncomfortable position of reaching out and asking for help. We prayed and sought our hearts and advise from friends and family on how to handle this – as we are of the ‘age’ and generation where you do it all yourself. However, we simply can’t and need to reach out.

Jim and I bought this ‘last ever’ house three years ago and  were so blessed – we still believe that. It was a foreclosure and it was something we could financially afford as we both are retired and on Social Security.

Unfortunately – the last 18 months have been riddled with various health problems causing numerous visits to the doctor – all to no avail and leaving us constantly sick.

Recently, we found out that the problem in the house is due to allergens and all the carpeting in the house must be removed and the entire house treated. This has caused major concerns for us as our limited income affords no extra leeway for doing this type of repair. We need to do this as soon as possible and if you can help in anyway, we would be greatly appreciative.

Thank you for considering helping us in this urgent matter. If you can help financially, click on the link below, if you are strapped too – then join us in prayer! ~ Jim & Pam

2017 and Important Milestones

Posted by on Feb 4, 2017 in All Posts, Israel Ponderings | 0 comments

2017 and Important Milestones

In the new year of 2017, we will pass several important milestones for Christians who support Israel. For instance, it has been 500 years since the start of the Protestant Reformation in October 1517, when Christians could read the Bible in their common languages once again and rediscovered that God still had plans for the Jewish people back in their ancient homeland. Meanwhile, it has been 100 years since the Balfour Declaration of November 1917 committed Great Britain to establishing a Jewish national home in Palestine. Finally, we will mark fifty years since the city of Jerusalem was reunited under Israeli rule during the Six-Day War of June 1967.

The anniversary of Balfour is especially significant for the state of Israel and her Christian friends. The Balfour Declaration, issued on the 2nd of November 1917, is a key document in modern Israel’s legal chain of title to the land. From this decree by the British cabinet flowed a series of international decisions to restore the Jewish nation, including the San Remo Conference of 1920, the League of Nation’s mandate over Palestine in 1922, the UN Partition Plan of 1947, Israel’s own Declaration of Independence in May 1948, and Israel’s admittance into the United Nations one year later.

The Balfour Declaration was the crowning achievement of the “Restorationist” movement in Great Britain. As early as the 1700s, leading Christian figures in England had advocated for a return of the Jews to the Land of Israel according to the divine promises of Scripture. This movement featured such noted clergymen as Charles and John Wesley, Charles H. Spurgeon, and Bishop Ryle of Liverpool, as well as prominent government leaders like William Wilberforce, Lord Palmerston and Lord Shaftesbury. As a result of their preaching and activism, Restorationism had already become the prevailing view even within the Anglican Church by the time the Jewish Zionist movement was launched by Theodor Herzl in 1897.

When it became clear during World War I that Britain and its allies would be able to free the Middle East from Ottoman rule, the government of David Lloyd George recognized it as an historic moment to assist the Jewish Zionists in regaining their homeland. Six of the nine members of his war cabinet, including Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, were openly professing Christian Zionists and they seized the opportunity to issue the modern equivalent of the ancient decree by King Cyrus for Jews to return and rebuild their nation. Because of this solemn commitment, which came to be known as the Balfour Declaration, Britain was granted a mandate to help create a Jewish nation in the liberated province of Palestine.

So, we have much reason to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Balfour Declaration this year. This coming November the International Christian Embassy Jerusalem will be sponsoring events and joining with Jewish and Christian friends to commemorate Balfour, including observances in London and Jerusalem.
Yet, not everyone will be hailing the centenary of the Balfour Declaration this year. In fact, Palestinian leaders will be using their internationally-funded PR machinery to assail this “criminal injustice” against their people. They are demanding that Britain apologize for Balfour and are even threatening to bring a lawsuit against the United Kingdom for all the damages caused to the Palestinians ever since. Yet such moves would be untenable and even counterproductive.

The reason is that these actions against Israel would actually undermine the claims to statehood of numerous Arab nations in the region.
Britain’s motivations behind the Balfour Declaration have always been a subject of debate. Some say it was meant to win Jewish favour during the war, or to repay Zionist leader Chaim Weizmann for his valuable contributions to the war effort. Others say it was a gesture of remorse for centuries of Christian anti-Semitism, or simply an act of British expansionism.

The truth is that Balfour was a valid and noble expression of Christian sympathy for a just cause. It also was part of a series of decisions made by the victorious powers during and after the war to create trusteeships in the Middle East and elsewhere as a way of nation-building and granting self-determination to the native peoples of liberated lands. So, Balfour actually is a pivotal marker for the closing of the age of colonialism, a self-imposed end by the Western nations themselves.

One of the architects of this mandate strategy was Jan Smuts, an avowed Christian Zionist. Until that time, the European powers would have just claimed the vacated Ottoman territories of the Middle East as part of their own empires. But Smuts and others felt it was time to let native peoples rule over their own lands and that the role of Western nations was just to assist them on the way to independence. This new approach was inspired in part by American president Woodrow Wilson and his fourteen points for spreading democracy and securing the peace in the post-war era. But, Smuts also described the mandate system as a “sacred trust” meant to free various lands and peoples from foreign rule.

Thus, Britain was granted a temporary mandate in Palestine and Iraq, while France was to oversee nation-building in Lebanon and Syria. In fact every Arab nation in the Middle East today can trace its legal claim to independence back to some of the same documents and decisions which created modern Israel. This was not a case of creating a Jewish state out of nothing. The Jews, like the Arabs, were viewed as indigenous to the region and thus entitled to reconstitute their ancient nation. So, to undermine Israel’s legal chain of title by assailing the Balfour Declaration would also call into question the claims to sovereignty of all its surrounding Arab neighbors. That is not something the Palestinians should really be pursuing.

The Balfour Declaration of 2nd of November 1917 was a letter signed by Lord Balfour which conveyed to British Jewish community leader Baron Walter Rothschild the cabinet’s decision to support the Zionist cause. It stated:

“His Majesty’s government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”

An Old Friend – Ginkgo

An Old Friend – Ginkgo

When we moved into this little place three years ago there was so much to explore – almost four acres and every nook and cranny held a surprise. On one corner was a sweet little herb garden tucked neatly behind a small coy pond ~ echinacea, mullen, chickweed, thyme among other herbs. In another corner were early risers such as iris’ and daffodils and in another corner – well, actually in the middle of the front yard – was a GINKGO TREE!!! Can you believe that? A ginkgo tree!!! Who does that? But she hails tall and bold in the front yard and her beautiful and healing leaves speak to me in a way none of the other trees on the property do.

Last fall I gathered a basketfull of fresh leaves and dried them carefully. I’ve been making a tea with them every so often and knew they were good for ‘something‘.  And today as I was doing a bit of research I just happened to run across some great info on this ancient wonder. Hope you enjoy.

Circulation: Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)

The stately gingko tree is said to have existed over 200 million years. Well, I don’t beleive its really 200 million years, but you know it’s a really, really long time! They come been cultivated since the 15th cnetury in China where the leaves were said to ‘benefit the brain’.  They are said to treat lung disorders, coughs and asthma symptoms as well as clearing up that diarrhea that comes from being sick. Today, the ginkgo products are probably some of the best-selling herbal medicines! Most of the commercial leaf production in the states actually comes from plantations in South Carolina, France and of course, China.

There are actually over 400 scientific studies that support ginkgo research on its benefits of increasing circulation to the extremities and the brain. The unique compounds that cause these health benefits are called flavone glycosides and ginkgolides.  They inhibit the development of inflammation and respiratory disorders and it is like a strong antioxidant. many are very excited about its properties in age-related diseases. You may want to do some more research on your own and incorporate this little gem into your own health regime.

Time flies

Posted by on Feb 3, 2017 in Torah Portion | 2 comments

When you’re having fun…well, that’s what they say anyway. Time has flown – but I sure wasn’t having any fun! Trying to stay sane, stay working and keep up with housework is monumental STRESS when you are sick! Unfortunately, I wasn’t the only one sick … so was my hubby .. and you know how hubbies are when they are sick .. yep!

Today, however, I feel pretty close to human and even did a bit of housework and maintenance on the homestead. Now, aren’t you glad I shared all that with you? Yeah, right!

So on to better things. This week’s Torah Portion is interesting and contains some really cool nuggets.

This week, the reading is in Exodus 10:1 – 13:16 and scripture shares with us the last of the 10 plagues and the going forth of a rag-tag multitude of people led by an aged man who has been far too long out in the desert. Maybe his brain is fried as he demands that Pharaoh let ‘his people go’. I’m sure the thought crossed his and some of the other Israelites mind a time or two.  But he carried on, no matter what anyone thought or said – he was determined to fulfill his mission.

Seven plagues had come and gone and Pharaoh continued to refuse to ‘hear and obey’ – even when he recognized that this god of the Hebrews was greater than he was (he considered himself a god too you know!). But, his ego was at stake now, and  the god of all Egypt was  not going to allow his people to see him denigrated! Not before this god of the Hebrews! No way!

So his ego became his strength … his identity. Pharaoh could see nothing past his ego – it was simply too big for anything else. His ego protected him from the truth, from the reality of what was coming. His ego blinded him to all that was going on and prevented him from seeing truth when it was all around him.  But that strength, was really a weakness and that weakness began to devour all that he thought he was. It became the black cloud that encircled him and the teeth of the crocodile in the River Nile. It was slowly sinking him into the depths of despair. Ultimately, what he took refuge in – destroyed him.

What is it that fuels your ego? Take a good look in the mirror, examine yourself carefully and see if you have Pharaoh’s eyes looking back at you. If you even see a glimmer of that once mighty god-man peering back at you – destroy it before it destroys you!

Chava, Eve, Helpmeet ~ What’s in a name?

Posted by on Jan 14, 2017 in All About Women, All Posts, Ezer Kenegdo | 0 comments

Chava, Eve, Helpmeet ~ What’s in a name?

So many various names that have been given to the first woman created by the Holy One of All Creation – what’s in a name? Well, we are going to go a little bit deeper here and see exactly what IS in a name!


As we study out the various words (cause words mean something you know!) we will discover a wealth of information contained within the descriptive language the Holy One breathed upon that first feminine creation whom He extracted from the man Adam. We will find out that the word helpmeet is a poor translation for such a deep well of richness from the original Hebrew word ‘ezer kenegdo.  It will surely rock your world and give your paradigm a shift in the way you perceive ‘woman’. Researching the scope and depth of this beautiful design of the Creator through the description He breathed upon her will be liberating for all mankind, and we will be on step closer to the garden.

So let’s go back to the beginning….the beginning of creation where the Holy One, blessed be He, saw that man was alone, that he had no one like himself and put him in a deep sleep.  The Scriptures are our foundation, our instruction manual and it would behoove us to see what the writer has to say about this creature, her job description and exactly what He made her for – don’t you think? Unfortunately, we come to the scriptures with our own idea of what it says … or doesn’t say. We bring our baggage of doctrine and traditions and plop them down on top of the words and say ‘see ~ that’s what it means’.  Ahhhhh, but does it?

In order to fully understand what the writers are saying, we must – we MUST – understand who the speaker is and who the audience is – and have clarity when understanding Torah talk. The speakers were Semitic, they were Hebrews and from the New Testament, they were all Jewish. Stuffing all the interpretations into a Greek box just isn’t going to get it done! Truth be told…we can’t even start or look at the New Testament (Brit Hadasha ~ Renewed Covenant) without a thorough understanding of the Old Testament (Tanakh). In order to see through their eyes, we must understnad what they were reading and view it through Hebrew eyes. Otherwise, we are simply adding to and taking away from scripture … putting our own biases and our own doctrines from our pet churches into the meanings. Look how well that has worked out!

So, let’s go back to the beginning, back to creation and look at the very first instance of what this creation is called. Let’s see what the English says, and then examine the Hebrew.  Every student of the bible knows that you have to look at the first encounter of a word to set the precedence for anything following. Turn if you will to Genesis 1:26-27. This passage is critical to our study. In my version it is translated as:

And God said, “Let us make Man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. So God created Man in His own image, in the image of God He created him, male and female He created them.”

Look at that verse again – do you see anything that would indicate that either man OR woman had superiority over one another? Do you see anything in these verses that says one or the other is less than equal? Mmmmmm…. I don’t either. In fact, it leaves one with the impression that THEY have dominion over all, together! Interesting. So, basically, in the beginning they were equal? Yes, it would seem so.

Digging a bit deeper, let’s just briefly look at the words male and female – what are those words in Hebrew and what do they actually mean? What is their description? Everything the Father created had a description tied to its name. Male in Hebrew is zakar and appears 82 times in Scripture. From all intent and purpose it is derived from a root word that means, “to be sharp, pointed”. The Hebrew noun for female in Hebrew is neqevah, which is derived from a verb that means, “to pierce.” Interesting to say the least, don’t you think? To put an additional piece of the puzzle into the mix ZAKAR has a homophone (a word spelled exactly the same way in Hebrew (Zayin-Kaf-Resh) but has a different meaning. The verb, zakar means “to remember.”  Now remember (pun intended), Hebrew is an action language, so to remember must be for something! And that something is to remember something in order to act upon it! Remember and do.

Let’s pull that out a bit. Could it possibly be that it is man’s responsibility (because of what his NAME means) is to remember who God is and to act on what God has told him to do? Just a thought. A thought that is carried out throughout scripture in various places.  Man is continuously called to remember his God and to obey His commandments. Something to think about.

Hebrew has two words for the word man, one being adam but the other is ish which is brought out in Genesis 2:23. This brings about the word ishshah, which has an interesting word play associated with it. Ish basically means the “strong arm that consumes.” Yes, there is definitely a phonetic similarity. Adding a hey at the end of this word adds the meaning “that which comes out of.” So the pictograph language would embrace the meaning “what comes out of the strong consumer.” Yes, we know that woman comes out fo man, and that is the reason she is called ish shah. But ishshah is not a derivative of ish. Her uniqueness and her equality is not lost on our  man Adam.  There is so much more to this description and understanding, and for this I would recommend getting and reading the extensive book written by Skip Moen on the ‘Guardian Angel’. These points are brought out to cause you to want to dig in and understand that God’s ways are higher than our ways – and we need to get back to the garden to see the full picture! But let’s go on.

By calling her ishshah, Adam acknowledges a perfectly suited partner and now the two of them must live in tandem with each other. The first community!  We were designed to be in community, to work together to bring about the paradise of our Father. So, now, let’s look at the main word I want to get to in this short, very short study. The ‘ezer kenegdo. This was what the Holy One Himself called her, the very first name she was called at her creation.  The word ‘ezer kenegdo is such a deep well of understanding, we can not simply just ignore it any longer.  It is also connected to the word ishshah and in the Hebraic understanding both words have the underlying concept of one who complements and one who opposes. Someone who stands along side and someone who stands in front of. Interesting concept, don’t you think?  Also, remember that Adam eventually ‘names’ her Havvah (Eve), but YHWH named her ‘ezer kenegdo. Maybe we should take another look.

So…here we are…looking at this special word given to the woman in the very beginning. Let’s read the verse:

And said YHWH Elohim, “It is not good for man to be alone; I will make for him a helper corresponding to him.” Genesis 2:18

In Hebrew, it says:

..lo-tov heyot ha’adam levado e’ese-lo ‘ezer kenegdo.

This word – ‘ezer is only found in Genesis 2:18 and 20 … and never again in the book of Genesis. This was God’s word, not Adam’s. What an unusual word ‘ezer. Very strange indeed. In fact, it is a masculine word! WHAT? What could that possibly mean? And to make it more interesting when the word ‘ezer does show up in other places in the Tanakh it refers to God’s relationship to His beloved Israel. So what does this word mean? Let’s take a look at some of the verses:

Exodus 18:4 ~ God delivers (ezer) from the hand of the oppressor. He rescues (ezer) from danger.

Deuteronomy 33:7 ~ God assists, supports and reinforces Israel against her enemies.

Psalm 33:20 ~ God is Israel’s shield, delivering Israel from death and showering Israel with loving-kindness.

Psalm 70:5 ~ God provides in time of affliction and need.

Psalm 115:9 ~ God is the one that Israel must trust

Psalm 146:5 ~ When God is ‘ezer, Israel is blessed and has hope.

All the words in italics are the actions and characteristics of an ‘ezer. And God is the ‘ezer!  The Holy One of Israel provides these traits in the form of the ‘ezer for His beloved. If this is true, and He has given this same word to the woman in the first instance of her being called, could they possibly be attributed to her job description as well? Something to think about at the very least.

Unfortunately, we have the fall of mankind in the Garden. We have the broken trusts, the broken relationship, and it continues throughout time until today. There is so much more to this understanding, but Skip has done such a wonderful job of going through all the nuances I would simply do it an injustice to go any further. Please consider several options to further your understanding on this subject. Skip has a website (Skip Moen) where you can search for the various terms and come away with a deeper understanding. He has several places on his site where you can purchase the video teaching, the book, or even a pdf file. Lastly, you can simply go to Youtube and search for his name and for Guardian Angel teachings.

New Study on Women in Scripture

Posted by on Jan 14, 2017 in All About Women, All Posts, Ezer Kenegdo, Proverbs 31, Women in the Bible | 0 comments

For the next three months we will be digging into some of the scriptures that speak about the women in the Bible… the Matriarchs, the Warrior Women of YHWH.

Join with us as we go thru some of these magnificent, courageous and insightful ladies who exemplify what it is to be an Ezer Kenegdo ~ the real description given by the Holy One to the woman He designed to walk with the man .

We’ll begin with CHAVA, or Eve, the mother of all living. Who was she? Why was she here? Why did Adam need a counterpart? What was her purpose and what resulted from her being placed on the earth with Adam?
