He completed his work ת

As the last letter of the alphabet, the tav ת represents the finished work of God. His revelation ר has finished its work with a spontaneous return to him. We love him because he first loved us. [1]

The name of the tav means ‘mark’. The mark of God is his finished work in us. [2]

The word for fraud tk תך and the word for flawless tam תם are an interesting contrast. The first is the finished work ת of the Son of God in death ך. It is fraudulent to consider Christ as dead. This is the same teaching as Sibboleth. The second is the finished work ת by the Son obtaining his bride in the flesh, fulfilling the promise of the Father ם.

As a suffix, the tav ת makes the preceding a subject. It amplifies the meaning of a single letter and makes larger collections a subject.

The bet ב means a revelation to man. Then name bet בת means daughter. Since the female represents the blind, or those who do not understand, the tav changes the focus of the metaphor to the one receiving the revelation; the one who needs to see and understand, the daughter.

The winepress gath גת is the object which produces the tribulation of the fruit of the vine. The tav focuses the attention of the gimel ג, meaning to pursue, on the object by which Christ pursued man, his tribulation, even to death.

The word muth מתmeaning ‘died’, has the mem as a prefix meaning from, and the tav at the end, meaning the end. We get a hint that death is from the end.

The word eth עת meaning ‘era’ amplifies the flesh, or suggests the end of flesh. This in in contrast to eth את which suggests eternity by the representation of the first letter and the last; the beginning and the end. This supports other suggestions that time is an illusion of the flesh in order to measure decay caused by sin. The time of time is an era. The time of flesh is an era.

There is a non-Biblical, but contemporary saying which includes a supposed saying of Jesus. Whether Jesus said it or not is not important. It illustrates an understanding of the same method of building words from the metaphor of the letters. Part of it is: “And when he finds, he will be dismayed.” The word for ‘dismayed’ is chath חת. The chet ח represents understanding. When one understands, he has found what he didn’t understand. The tav focuses on the result of understanding, which is dismay. This does not speak of normal understanding, but of understanding the thing which was not understood and which separated him from God. When men understand that God alone is God, it causes a dismay or dread, realizing the deep trouble they have caused for themselves as they stand before the Almighty.


  1. 1Jo 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.
  2. Php 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform [it] until the day of Jesus Christ:


Revealing ר

The rosh ר symbolizes revelation beyond mere commands, law or words. It contains personality. In the bet ב, the revelation is to man. In the kaf כ, the revelation has become man. And in the tav ת, the revelation has produced a spontaneous response back to God. The name of the letter means ‘destitute’. Christ who is the revelation of the Father, emptied himself to be found in the form of man. [1]

When Christ had finished his work ם of revelation ר he was exalted ram רם.

The revelation of God ר came quickly retz רץ through the cross ץ. [2]

When the revelation רב has come to man ב, he contends for the faith rab רב.

The word for descend rad רד contains a hint of the emptying or kenosis of Christ as he became incarnate. It is important to note that he did not become lessor than God in the kenosis, he merely chose not to use the attributes of deity, as mentioned previously.

The word of God in the flesh is the word for evil. Christ was made to be sin for us. [3]

The revelation ר of the bride ז is something that was kept secret ‘raz’ רז until the cross.

As the ‘bar’ בר, he is the exact representation of the nature of God.

The mountain ‘har’ is where you go when you are drawn ה to the revelation ר.

One who pursues ג the revelation ר is a sojourner ‘ger’ גר.

The bitterness ‘myrrh’ מר of his death comes from מ the revelation ר.

The Son of Man נ revealed ר that he was the light of the world [4], and as the Word of God was a lamp ‘ner’ נר to our feet. [5] This means that Jesus is our holiness/light and he directs our lives.

John uses the rosh as “water/word” in “earth” ארץ.


  • Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
  • Isa 58:8 ¶ Then shall thy light break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the LORD shall be thy reward.
  • 2Co 5:21 For he hath made him [to be] sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.
  • Joh 9:5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.

Ps 119:105 ¶ NUN. Thy word [is] a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.

1Jo 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.

The cross צ

The tsadi צ is like the ayin ע but it touches in the lower right corner, which I call the point of the cross. It symbolizes the reconciliation of Holiness and Love on the cross. It is a symbolism of righteousness. It’s name means side and provision. Just as Eve was taken from the side of Adam while he slept/died, so the church was formed from the cross. As Holiness and Love were joined on the cross, provision was made for man to live; hence the lower horizontal from the cross.

The word for tree ets עץ with letters representing sin ע and righteousness ץ. Christ though righteous, bore our sin on the tree/cross.

The word for flourish or blossom is tsuwts צץ, which is the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (the tree of death). The first emphasizes the life given through the cross; the second emphasizes the death. Jesus was called the firstfruit; he was the first living thing on earth, spiritually speaking. He blossomed, flourished and was fruitful through the cross.

The word for “go forth” is tsa צא with a new heaven and earth after the cross. [1]

Covered wagon, tsab צב is he righteousness of God צ, come into man ב, and working his will in the world (the symbol of wheels and chariots).

The law has a shadow of the kingdom of heaven [2]. The word for shadow is tsel צל which is the teaching ל of the cross צ.

The wrath of God was poured out on mankind in Jesus on the cross. The word for poured is tsaq צק, meaning the Son of God dies and rose ק on the cross צ. [3] [4]

And instruction, tsav צו means to clarify ו the cross צ.



  • Re 21:1 ¶ And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
  • Heb 10:1 ¶ For the law having a shadow of good things to come, [and] not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.
  • Eph 5:6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

Ro 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; Ro 1:19 ¶ Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed [it] unto them.


A new creation י

The yud represents the first and complete thought that God had to create. It oozes from the blank page which represents God. Consider:

-Every letter is drawn by first drawing a yud.
-Every word is made of letters derived from the yud.
-Everything that was created was spoken into existence using words.
-Every thought is expressed in words.

The essence of everything that is created is contained in the infinitesimally small yud. It is like the hypothetical Big Bang of science, but it includes personality. Creation is the testimony of God.

Ps 19:1 ¶ « To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. » The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

As a metaphor it represents God who thought the thought of creation. It represents the thought itself or the result of the thought.

The yud is known as the jot in Greek. Jesus said that not the tiniest part of any letter of the law would disappear before it was fulfilled. And since the tiniest part, the yud, represents all of creation, the meaning is that not one thing from the tiniest part to the whole will disappear before it is fulfilled.

The name of the letter, yud יד, means hand. The hand represents works. Creation is the work of God. The right hand represents his spiritual works, and the left hand represents his physical works.

The idea that words are formed from the meaning of the letters is foreign to those who think like Greeks (most of us). But his name yahweh has the dictionary meaning of “I am”

Yahweh יהוה is yah י , God, the creator (yud) י – of calamity (evil) havvah הוה

Isaiah 45:7 says: ‘…I make peace, and create evil [calamity]: I the LORD [Yahweh] do all these things.’

He created the system where you reap what you sow.

Job 4:8 Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

He created the system that brings to fruit the calamity that we sow by plowing in sin. And this system is good, even though we choose calamity. Suffering is a schoolmaster of the flesh to drive us back to God.

“It is not supposed to be this way” is the cry of reaping our own harvest, and acknowledging that God’s harvest is better.

Marriage with the Son of God ט

The tet ט is formed by the joining of a kaf כ (Son of God) and the zayin ז (his bride) at the bottom.  Together they form the marriage on earth.

Just as Adam obtained his bride through his sleep/death Christ obtained his bride through the cross. The church IS the bride of Christ.

The tet ט first appears in scripture in the word “good” towb טוב.  Each day of creation was good. By the letters: The marriage ט clarified by ו the revelation to man (the son) ב.

Each day of creation is also a “day” yowm יום. By the letters it means: A clarification ו of God’s intention י and how it was fulfilled by the son in the flesh ם.

Each day was good because each day is a picture of the revelation of the son, which is of the cross and a symbol of the marriage of Christ to the church.

The bride ז

The zayin ז returns to God on the left side of the Square Text template. The Word of God came to earth down the right  side and returned on the left.  The bride is made to be like Christ:

1Jo 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

The shin ש has two zayins returning to God. Christ did not return void, but with an increase. The bride is the increase.

Consider it’s use in the word Male’ zakar זכר.

The zayin retains its primary metaphor as it is used to build words. The ‘male’ zakar זכר is the ‘son of God’ kaf כ who is ‘laden with guilt’ zar זר. ‘Laden with guilt’ is ‘the returning’ zayin ז ‘revelation’ resh ר. Whose guilt is it? That of the bride.

The same word is: the bride’s ז butting lamb ר.  The lamb used for the bride’s sacrifice.

Also it is: the pure זכ revelation ר .  There can be no purer revelation than the male זכר , as a symbol of Christ.

Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

It distinguished them ו

The vav ו is a yod י with the lower portion extended downward to the baseline of the Square Letter Template. When used as a prefix it is translated and. It is a metaphor for the first words that God spoke into the void created by the yod: “Let there be light”

The vav, representing this declaration, distinguishes between the Darkness and the Light, but it also joins them the same way the word “and” does in English. Some say that the vav ‘clarifies’ things; distinguishing between two things that are associated as one.

The vav is the word which was spoken into the void. That Word is Christ Jesus.

The name vav mean “hook”, “peg” or “nail”.  The word spoken from the beginning nailed Christ to the cross. It was central to the plan.  The vav is the 6th letter which represents two testimonies of 3 each. John says there are three testimonies in heaven and three on earth. One vav is the word in heaven and one the word on earth.

The vav is the number 6, and because man was created on the sixth day has been associated with man. But the man created on the sixth day is a type of Christ. The number is the number of Christ and as the vav is the “water, water”… the “word,word” or word in heaven and earth.

The rabbis warn their students that when they see the white stone in scripture they should not say “water, water”. It is a warning against seeing the Holy Father and Son as the living Torah in heaven and earth.

**The number five is the number of man made from dust. This is the letter hei meaning deceived.

They heard but did not understand ה

The hei (or he) ה is a dalet ד with a short vav ו returning but not making it all the way back.  Unfortunately, some fonts look more like a rosh ר with a short vav ו.

The primary meaning is that the word was heard but not understood. The metaphor has both a positive and a negative aspect. On the negative side the spiritually blind. On the positive side, it represents those who are drawn to the word, like sheep hearing a voice, but not understanding the words spoken.

It’s dictionary meaning is an exclamation “Aha!”

The hei is in the middle of the name for God, Elohim. It separates God (el) from his creation represented by the yod and final mem. His creation is separated from him because they don’t understand him.

The correction for this is teaching.

When it is used as a suffice it makes the word feminine. The female in scripture also represents the blind. Paul says that the woman was deceived.

As a prefix it can be translated as ‘the’ or indicate a question.  As a question indicator it has the same idea as not understanding.

Just as Eve was deceived, and she was the help-meet for Adam, the gate het הת means cooperative as the “purpose ת of the one deceived ה”.

His commands and teachings ד

As the fourth letter it represents the four voices of God: prophet, priest, king and judge. All the revelation of God in the OT came from the voices of these offices. The dalet is the full propositional word of God.

The meaning of the name is ‘poor‘ or ‘door‘. However, The metaphoric meaning is supported by pulling the lamed out of the middle. Dot דת means ‘law‘, ‘decree‘ or ‘commandment‘. The lamed in the middle says that the heart of the commandment is ‘teaching‘.

Paul says that the law has a shadow of the kingdom of heaven.

Heb 10:1 ¶ For the law having a shadow of good things to come, [and] not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect.

The purpose of the shadow is to speak of Christ. Jesus said that all the scriptures spoke of him.

When followed by a gimel in fish ‘dag’ דג means ‘commanded to pursue‘. Adam named the animals based on their behavior, and the darting fish looked like it’s commanded nature was to pursue.

Jesus fed people bread and fish. He said the bread represented his body on the cross. He also said that man does not live by bread/the cross, alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. The fish represent the word of God which pursues man.

Jesus told Peter to feed his sheep after having eaten bread, and telling him to drag in 153 fish. Peter was commanded to feed them the cross and every word which proceeds from the mouth of God.

He pursued them ג

The strokes of the gimel is like the nun (Son of man). The vav is split and first hits the point of the cross in grace for man,  and then holiness hits man later as he is sanctified.

God pursued man by first reconciling him through the cross, then by making him holy. Sanctification comes after reconciliation.

Ro 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

The allegory for the letter is that a rich man pursued a poor man. It is a pun to ‘camel’. Jesus uses the pun when a rich man pursued him.

The ultimate rich man is God. When he looked at man, he found none seeking him even though he had promised that if they sought him they would find him.

The gimel/camel represents the judge. He carries his own water/word with him. The first part of God’s pursuit is judgement. He judged the sin of man through Christ on the cross.

God pursuing man is taught through many shadows. He draws man to himself as when Moses was attracted to the burning bush. He chases after them as he did Jonah. He seeks them out when they are lost, like the good shepherd. He woos them as Jacob did Leah. He leads them and follows them as the pillar of smoke and fire did in the desert.

The name of the letter spelled out גמל means “He pursued man ג to teach ל of the covenant with the Father מ.

The value of the letter is 3. All three persons of the Godhead pursue man.
