My apologies

Here is an example of the aleph with the next two letters of the alphabet. I apologize because it can get tedious. We are so accustomed to read quickly through material, and lists like this are intended for deep contemplation.

One might try to correlate other scriptures with the doctrines suggested.  But it important to bore you with examples now, so that later, I can bore you in small pieces and you know there is a basis for the practices being used.

From the combination of aleph with the bet, the following doctrines are suggested:

The Father has never been seen except by the Son. (invisible aleph)
The Son reveals the Father (bet reveals invisible aleph) (bet alone is the Son which reveals the ab)
The Father revealed himself after creation (by the letters)
He used the door (the Son) to reveal himself (bet is the door by allegory)
He created a house (bet by the name)
He divided the house (aleph divides)
He reconciled the house (aleph reconciles)
He exists as a triune God (gematria of ab = 3)

From the combination of the aleph and the gimel:

After creation God pursued the weaker one (gimel is rich man pursuing the poor)
When the Creator pursues you, you will be anxious, insecure (meaning of ag) (opposite of ga – pride)

Aleph in desire -2 abeh אבה

The hei ה represents hearing but not understanding. There is a positive an negative aspect to it. On the negative side it represents those who don’t understand. They are also represented by the blind.  On the positive side it means they hear but don’t understand like the sheep hearing the voice of the shepherd without understanding the words. They are drawn to his voice.

When added to the end of father, the word means desire abeh אבה.  The sheep desire to be with the father.

Abeh can also be read as ah אה with the revelation of God to man, the bet ב, in the heart. ah אה means to yearn. It is a similar meaning as abeh אבה; yearning to hear the word, or drawn to the Father.

Abeh also means reed. Water represents the word of God. The reed is a metaphor for the one who is bent by the flow of the water. Following the word without understanding.

The word is only used once, and is translated ‘swift’.

Job 9:26  They are passed away as the swift <016> ships: as the eagle that hasteth to the prey.

The ships made from reeds would have been light weight and swift in the wind, so it is not a bad cultural/contextual translation since they did not have the metaphor of the letters available at the time.

The Concordant Hebrew English Sublinear Bible translates abeh אבה as ‘one being enemy’. This has the negative sense of being blind.

The reed boats were associated with the Egyptians which were enemies of Israel from an early time.

Aleph in father -1 ab אב

As words build up from letters, they retain the meaning of the smaller combinations of letters within. There are several ways this takes place:

Compounding includes conjugation, prefixing, suffixing and attaching other gates or roots.* In compounding, the original meaning carries forward to the new meaning.

To form abiy from ab a yod is added as a suffix. It becomes ‘my father’.

The challenge is to see how a word containing ab אב relates to the father when it is not obvious. This form is by attribution. The combination refers to an attribute of the original.

The bet ב represents the revelation coming to man.

The Father is the one who, after the creation, made himself known to man. He is the father ab אב. The word ab אב also means greenness, freshness, and fruit.

Here is a different expression of the metaphor speaking of the result of the creation, and what man could see of the creation when God revealed himself. It was a fresh, green world bearing fruit. The greenness and fruitfulness ab אב is the testimony of the Father.

How do we know the Father exists? By the testimony of his creation. It is fruitful. Like begets like. Life continues.

Ro 1:19 ¶ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.
Ro 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, [even] his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

Another example of formation by attribution is the word perish. The word for perish is abad אבד; the Father’s  אב command or spoken word ד.

2Co 3:6 ¶ Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

The word without the life, kills. You perish. Perish is also the mist ayd אד with a revelation to man bet ב inside. The testimony of creation also kills.

Ge 2:6 But there went up a mist from the earth, and watered the whole face of the ground.
*Gates are two-letter combinations. Roots are three-letter combinations

Aleph – 1 א

God spoke and created the heavens and the earth

By focusing on the whole letter it can represent:
Actor: God as the creator
Act:  creation as a verb
Result: the creation
Method: separation
Effect: war between heaven and earth, division between holiness and love.

By focusing on the vav it can represent:

The Spirit hovering on the face of the waters. The fluttering of the Spirit serves to divide heaven and earth. What fellowship does holiness have with unholiness?

The firmament between the waters. The solid thing between heaven and earth (God in flesh) is Christ, who joins them.

When placed at the end of a word, the firmament comes into focus as heaven and earth are reconciled.

Aleph is also the number 1. There is only 1 creation but it has two aspects: heaven and earth. But the one has three parts. It has a vav and two yods. the two yods represent the Father and the son. They are one. They are each represented by a yod, but one is above and one is below. The mem and final mem repeat this teaching. The mem, representing the father is connected above, the final mem is also connected below. They are two forms of one letter.

Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.

The Spirit is called the Spirit of Christ, but also God is Spirit. He is an expression of both the Father and the Son.

Joh 15:26 ¶ But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

The Spirit proceeds from the Father, given to the Son, who gives Him to us. The Son does the work of making the Father known.

The name ‘aleph’ has the meaning of 1000.  One day is like a thousand years. They are the same letter.

Formation of letters

Mt 5:18  For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

The Greek word jot comes from the Hebrew letter yod י. It is the smallest letter. It would properly be represented by the smallest dot conceivable. However no one would see it.

The Greek word tittle keraia κεραία means horn. Rabbis comment that the vav looks like a horn. And horns are used as noise makers to get attention for a proclamation.

Contrary to popular belief, ‘jot or tittle’ is not a redundancy to say the smallest thing.  It means everything from the smallest idea to the loudest proclamation. Effectively nothing will pass away until all is fulfilled.

Another consideration is the formation of letters.
When drawing any letter, a yod is first formed. Every letter proceeds from the yod.  Every word is formed from letters, and everything was created with words. All of the letters are formed with yods and vavs. The yod contains everything that God wanted to say and do. The vav clarifies the singularity into everything else that exists.

Letters are formed within a square template. The strokes of the vavs can join at right angles or with curves. The top horizontal represents heavenly things, the lower, earthly things.  The right vertical descends and the left ascends.

A right angle is a lessor transfer than a curve. The dalet ד, with a right angle,  is the command or teaching. The resh ר is a revelation with personality. The bet ב is a revelation to man. The kaf כ is the revelation who has become man.

Most people don’t want or need to learn Hebrew, but should recognize that the meaning assigned to letters are not the result of free-for-all allegory, but are based in the meaning of the strokes within the letters.

Though it is boring to most, it reveals that Jesus and Paul were familiar with the meaning of the strokes.

Mystery of the alphabet

The letters of the Hebrew alphabet are also numbers.
When they are placed in order, and the metaphoric meaning read, the mystery of Christ is revealed.

Each letter is a huge idea, so this meaning is just an outline of a revealed/discovered systematic theology.

God created the heavens and the earth א
He revealed to man ב
that he pursued them ג
with his commands and teachings ד
which they heard but did not understand ה
It distinguished them ו
as the bride ז
when they understood ח
Through marriage with the Son of God ט
they became a new creation י
The Son of God כ
taught ל
the covenant made by the Father מ
The Son of Man  נ
fulfilled the spiritual works of God ס
reconciling holiness and grace in his flesh by being made to be sin. ע
He spoke in parables פ
of the cross צ
The Son of God died and rose ק
revealing ר
that his word does not return void (resurrected with a bride) ש
He completed his work, with a new life responding to him ת
The Son of God died ך
and finished the declared works ם
The Son of Man died ן
Prophecy was fulfilled (the prophet died) ף
Judgement was ended (the judge/righteous man died) ץ
Christ reigns as king <Final Shin>

Teaching children – 3

In the formation of words, God repeats ideas in different ways to that we learn intuitively what he is saying.

Ge 2:7 And the LORD God formed man [of] the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

The Hebrew word for ground is Adamah אדמה. God took Adam from Adamah.

Le 17:11 For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood:
The word for blood is dam דם . The Blood/dam is in Adam giving him life.

The word dam דם , by the letters means The commandment דם  fulfilled ם. The purpose of the commandments is to give life.

Joh 12:50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting:

Pr 13:14 ¶ The law of the wise [is] a fountain of life, to depart from the snares of death.

Joh 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.

Joh 1:1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.  

Adam אדמ was taken from the ground adamah  אדמה and had the blood dam דמ which is the word of God fulfilled , giving him life. He was the created aleph  א life dam דמ.  (Did you see what I did there? Since the life is in the blood, I replaced life for blood.)

As God breathed his breath into Adam, the Spirit hovered over the face of the waters below.

Adam has within him the commandment dalet ד. His work is to fulfill it …  mem ם. `

Eph 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

Christ fulfilled the commandment/law d-m ד-מ with his blood dam דמ.

Teaching children – 2

God repeats ideas in different ways to teach man how to read his word. The post “Teaching children” showed the idea of God being the creator repeated and expanded from an invisible letter to the whole Bible.

Now consider the word for heaven shamayim שמים. The word is repeated telling us a new meaning.  Sh- mayim is spirit – waters. The position of the shin puts it at the head of the word. The head of something is over that something. So we are told, from the word for heaven:

Ge 1:2  And the Spirit of God moved (hovered) upon the face (surface) of the waters.

This is a secondary metaphor for the aleph א. The diagonal vav is the Spirit hovering between two yods.

mayim מים is a dual form of water. מי is water, and ים is water. The yod hovers between the waters. The yod is the first primordial spark of life given to creation.

Water represents the Word of God. It has two aspects: Holiness and Love. The water above is Holiness. The water below is Love. He is Holy and separate.  We are loved.

The Spirit hovers over the water below. This means that the word of God is attended to by the Spirit of God.

2Ti 3:16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2Pe 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.

The water/Word below does the will of the Water above:

Joh 5:19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.
Joh 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
Joh 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

The Spirit descended upon Jesus at his baptism coming from the water above, into the water below. The Spirit hovered upon the face of the waters.

Teaching children

When teaching children to speak, ideas are repeated, started with simple expressions, and increasing in complexity.

One meaning of Elohim is God separated from his people because they do not understand. The remedy to this is the kingdom of heaven which is teaching. All of creation, all of the words of God, all of the actions of Christ, and all of the life of the Spirit are devoted to bringing man and God together.

The primary teaching of the Bible is that God alone is God as understood that he alone is the creator. This is repeated in the first letter, then the first word, the first sentence, the first chapter and completes with the whole word.

The first letter of the first verse of the first book is an invisible aleph. It is also a silent letter.  א

It’s primary meaning from the strokes is God spoke and created the heavens and the earth. Since it is invisible and silent, we know that he had no witnesses to him doing it.

Job 38:4 ¶ Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

The first word of Gen 1:1 is bereshit בראשית, translated In the beginning.  When read letter by letter , rather than as a word it says the same thing as the invisible aleph.

Bet ב – A revelation to man
Resh ר – It is revealed
Aleph א – that God spoke and created the heavens and the earth
Shin ש – his word did not return void, but returned with an increase
Yod י – What he intended to do
Tov ת – he completed

The first sentence says the same as the first letter and word:

Ge 1:1 ¶ In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Not only does bereshit repeat the meaning of the aleph, but sets the stage for the first chapter. When the word is split in half and then read as bere-shit it means Created six. He then expands and tells how he created all in six days.

As mentioned previously, each day points to a larger portion of scripture emphasizing that the purpose of the whole word of God is to reveal to man that God alone is creator, bridging the gap of misunderstanding, and bringing God and man together.

NT authors read meaning from Hebrew letters

Matthew saw a marriage in the heart of Yahweh in the name of Yeshua.  The shin has a meaning to him.

John explains the meaning of the consonants in the Hebrew word for heaven as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. He further explains that the letters in the word for ‘earth’ represent the Spirit, water and blood. He also observes that the number value of each word is 3.

John declared that no man had ever seen God. In spite of apparent theophanies in the OT, John discerned that no one had seen the Father from an invisible aleph in Gen 1:1.

Paul discerns that we have been chosen from the beginning from the letter combinations of the first word of the Bible. From ‘bereshit’ he discerned that the covenant with man started in the beginning.

Paul understood the meaning of the Hebrew letter vav as he explained that the word was sharper than a two-edged sword. The vav looks like a sword. As a prefix it is translated ‘and’. The word and separates and connects two things. It distinguishes between them and clarifies that they are different.

Heb 4:12  For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

The vav represents God speaking into creation and clarifying that he is Holy… He alone is God; separate and distinct from his creation.

James determines from the meaning of the Hebrew letter samekh and the word for storehouse that “all good things come from the Father of lights”.

Peter expounds on the meaning of aleph that one day is a a thousand years to the Lord.

Each letter has a meaning. It is metaphor which can be expressed in many ways.  The combination of letters form 2 -letter gates. The order of the letters in a gate reverses the meaning. Each word derives it’s meaning from the combined meaning of the letters.
