"Muffin and Orca stretching to get to the best leaves"
Ya’el, this is Hebrew for a Nubian Ibex that resides in Israel. This mountain goat flourishes in adverse conditions. We too find ourselves in adverse conditions, as so many now do and we are hoping to flourish here by The Almighty Hand of our Father, Yahweh. We also have the obvious connection with the goats. So we have become Ya’el Farm. Our business has been and will continue to be WhiteRooster.org but we have never named our Farm. And if we move this name will move with us, because this name reflects us and the work of our hands not the land that Yahweh has chose to bless us with for this time.
We now have a blog site to tell you the goings on around the farm. We will also post information on how we use natural remedies like oils, clays and tinctures; information on Wholefoods, goats and chickens and anything else we've learned from our experiance here on the farm. I hope you enjoy getting to know our farm life.
please visit us there.
"Tarnigol: Hebrew for rooster, she is our "White Rooster"
Ya’el in Scripture
Ya’el can be found in the book of Judges. Judges 4 & 5 is the story of Deborah a prophetess and Judge of Israel at that time. Her name means “bee” in Hebrew and the root of Deborah means “order” or “Word” (Yahweh’s Word keeps order) likewise a bee is a very orderly insect. Barak whose name means “lightning” is chasing Sisera which means “servant of Ra” (sun god worship). Sisera is eventually killed by Ya’el- a woman! Using a tent peg which has the meaning “to secure” and a hammer symbolizing our “work” all taking place in a tent which can be symbolic of “learning the Word.” She gave him milk from a skin which was food for nobles so maybe to relax him with her hospitality, but symbolically we kept thinking of the milk and the meat of the Word. She is the wife of Hever the meaning of his name is “enclave: a distinct territorial, cultural or social unit enclosed within or as if within a foreign territory."
So now armed with some more understanding of some of these meanings go back and read Judges 4 & 5 again. Can you see the symbolism in it and the Spiritual aspect? It may be different for you than for us, that is one reason why it is called a “Living Bible!”
Enjoy reading and drawling closer to your Heavenly Father.
