It is the real source of the word ‘doom,’ which among other later-added connotations means total destruction, death or the Last Judgment. Notice that just like ‘silence’ ‘doom’ is also related to ‘blood’ and it also indicates cessation!
There isn’t in this world a more powerful philological, metaphysical, and yet lifelike testimony of man’s Creation, as it reflects seamlessly through these Hebrew words.
You may hear theological arguments of various doctrinal orientations. They may sound compelling and convincing, but they all require your good will to accept them. This ‘good will’ is usually dressed up with a more palatable word called ‘faith.’ Faith on its own is an exalted gift − if it leads to truth. Do you dare guess how many people around the globe are misled in the very moment into doom − just by demanding their faith.
Here’s an example of ‘dooma’ in the Bible:
“The dead cannot praise the Lord, nor can any who go down into silence”
The use of the translated word, ‘silence,’ here is a slight softening of the deeper Hebrew word used here: ‘doo•ma,’ doom.
Do you want to know how Jesus really shoved away Satan, who tried to tempt him into doom? He did it fearlessly, with the means of pure Hebrew idioms and direct quotations from the Hebrew Old Testament. The verbal exchange between Jesus and Satan is fascinating and can be labelled as ‘Contemptuous Respect.’ Respect, because Jesus recognized Satan’s power. Contempt, through Jesus’s verbatim adherence to Old Testament words and idioms (see Matthew 4:1-11).
This is, perhaps, the best technique for anyone who needs to push away evil forces − first, drop the fear and embrace God’s words. It worked for Jesus and will work for you too − you’ll never ever be doomed.
