I suppose this will be the Grand Finale, equivalent to the icing on the cake. In this episode we will discover the ancient wisdom that has been hidden in our English bible that decodes the mysterious Alpha and Omega that we find in the book of Revelation. The foundation for Alpha and Omega can only be found in the Hebrew script according to the Hebrew understanding. It is a beautiful truth that has been stripped from our bibles because mankind lacked understanding of its meaning. Where it is found and who it is referring to makes it an important truth to uncover.
The Hebrew word for Aleph Tav is (H853) and the first place this word appears is in the very first verse of scripture. Right next to God the Father we see this number. This is how it reads from the Interlinear bible:
|Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.|
When we understand that in all eternity there has only been one time ever that the Father and the son experienced a separation, and it was for us. Indeed our sin came at a cost, not one we had to pay but one that was paid for us.
(Mat 27:46) And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
When we consider this then we can have a greater understanding about why treading His blood underfoot has such a steep penalty. It is our sin that put Yahushah on the Cross and we need never forget it, nor excuse it by returning to the sin that caused his death to be necessary.
|Heb 6:4-6 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, (5) And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, (6) If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame.|
We should never forget that the aim for believer’s is completion, we are called to be holy as He is holy. We are expected to remove the filthy garments of the flesh so that we can walk in the Spirit of God. Too great a price was paid for us, salvation is far from free, its just someone else had to pay the price for us to experience the freedom of it; just as a seed has to die in order for us to eat of its fruit.
The Word (H853) was removed 7,302 times.
When we look at the Ancient Hebrew Characters that make up the Aleph Tav we also see something.
(Exo 13:16) And it shall be for a token upon thine hand, and for frontlets between thine eyes: for by strength of hand the LORD brought us forth out of Egypt.
(Deu 6:8) And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
(Deu 11:18) Therefore shall ye lay up these my words in your heart and in your soul, and bind them for a sign upon your hand, that they may be as frontlets between your eyes.
In Exodus 13:15 the children of Israel were instructed to keep the Passover as a sign. The blood of the spotless lamb would be a sign unto them. Just as that lamb’s blood was on the wood post upon the door of their homes, so also was our Lord Yahushah’s blood upon that piece of wood that was pushed into the ground.
In Deuteronomy what are they being instructed to bind as a sign upon their hands, and as frontlet’s between their eyes? The word, and again in chapter 11 it is His words that we are to lay up in our heart and in our soul, and bind them for a sign upon our hand and as frontlets between our eyes. The Aleph Tav, the word and our keeping of it in our hearts, and minds, sanctifying it in all we say, think, and do, is the sign which reflects who we belong to.
Now most of us would have no problem seeing how Yahushah fulfills the one coming on the cross as we celebrate and remember his sacrifice either as a Messianic or a Christian, but many don’t see how the Ox represents him. Remember Hebrew is not just symbols as is English but each character has a character, as well as has a numeric value. The numeric value of the Aleph is one as it is the first character of the Hebrew alphabet and the Tav is the last character of the Hebrew Alphabet, which should bring to mind this scripture.
|Rev_1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.|
This in essence is a redundant statement because as Aleph and Tau are the first and last characters of the Hebrew alphabet so also is Alpha and Omega in the Greek. Although, we should know that as John was a Hebrew that he would have been speaking in Hebrew which would mean if written in Hebrew it would read I am Aleph and Tau, the first and the last. Yahushah came as the sign () of the covenant, but shall return as the strong ox () that shall rule with a rod of iron in his grand finale. Hence, the first will be last and the last was first.
We have completed the series on There’s Just Something About That Name. I know that with Yah there is always sooo very much to learn and I look forward to the new things He will teach me about himself and I look forward to sharing those new things with you. May YHWH bless every reader, May He make His face to shine upon every reader and give you Shalom (peace). In the Name that is above every name that is named the Great Deliverer whom Moses said we must hear, Yahushah (Jesus) Ha Maschiach (Christ).
