20 And he erected there an altar, and called it El elohe-Israel.
El. (Pronounced Ail)
Power Increate, being the strength of creatures formed by it, we find Ail, associated with other words than Shaddai.
"Two persons are represented here. The Father, by himself, being Ail, or power; but when associated with the Son of man, who when so associated was powerful-anointed with Holy Spirit and with power'-He was Ail-Eloahh; the Power mediately manifested; the power being one,-the medium of manifestation another Eloahh." . . .
Yahweh Elohim Ch 1.
POWER INCREATE, being the strength of creatures formed by it, we find Ail associated with other words than shaddai. In Gen. 33:20, it is testified, that Jacob erected an altar, and called it Ail Elohai Yisraail, rendered in the margin of the English Bible, God, God of Israel. An altar, mizbaiach, is a thing to sacrifice or present offerings upon, from zavach, to kill, etc. It was regarded as "most holy," so that whatever touched the altar was sanctified or made holy (Exodus 29:37).
The blind fools, as Jesus styled the Rabbis of his day, had reversed this, and by making the altar of no account (Matt. 23:18), destroyed its typical and sanctifying character. In the days of the patriarchs and prophets, the typical altar was temporarily sanctified, but in the days of the apostles, and consequently now also, Jesus is the sanctifier, as Paul teaches in Heb. 2:11, saying that
"Both he that sanctifieth, and they being sanctified, are all out of one (Father) ex henos":
and in Chapter 13:10-13, he plainly identifies Jesus as the sanctifying altar of which none have any right to eat who hold on to the types rejecting the things they shadow forth.
