Wonders In The Hebrew
The Name Above Every Name
World Events in Prophecy
Come To The Feast!
OUR COVER: The
Hebrew language and alphabet has gone through changes during the ages. It had
almost disappeared from use and existence until the establishment of the nation
of Israel in the 1940’s. There is a resurging interest in the language in
these latter days. Many, including ourselves, are learning more and more about
the more ancient Paleo and Pictorial Hebrew languages. We hope that our article
entitled “Wonders In The Hebrew” will enlighten you. We do promise that
there will be much more to come.

Why Russia Invaded Georgia:
Payback Time From
the Orthodox World to the West
The above title and parts of the following news article should be of
extreme interest to all citizens of the world. This author has followed many of
the things that have happened in Russia for so long a time since the reality of
who Russia is was brought to the forefront of his attention years ago. You will
find more about this identity in prophecy section of this magazine on page 16.
The news article says:
As Russia sees it, Bill Clinton turned the American Air Force into air
support for an Islamic revolution against the Orthodox world. The attack against
the Serbian homeland was an exercise of naiveté equivalent to bombing Vatican
City then wondering why Roman Catholics might be upset and stay upset. Then
George Bush decided it would be a good idea to place a missile defense system in
Poland, disregard Russia's advice and invade Iraq and further insult and
encircle the heart of the Eastern Orthodox world.
It takes a special breed of a-historical American president who is
steeped in the Protestant idea of denominationalism; wherein Methodists,
Presbyterians, Southern Baptists etc., all do their thing and somehow get along,
to so thoroughly misunderstand the fact that Russia is reemerging first and
foremost as a country reconnecting with its Orthodox historical imperial roots.
We just have no concept of blood ties, soil and holy tradition in America. Since
we don't take tradition seriously we can't believe that anyone else does.
For us the bottom line is always expediency and "what works."
But in other parts of the world national pride is tied to a continuity of
historic tradition (as was just demonstrated so beautifully in the opening
ceremonies at the Beijing Olympics steeped as they were in Confucianism, and
In Russia's case its public humiliation at the hands of the United
States, following the Cold War, could not have been designed better to have
produced the invasion of Georgia. What's going on is the slow-motion
counterattack of the Orthodox world against the West's latest crusade. Georgia
is just a symbol for the counter-punch to the modern version of the West's sack
of Constantinople in 1204.
Bill Clinton bombed Russia's closest and oldest Orthodox ally into
submission and did so to send a half-baked and ill-conceived (utterly useless)
message to the Islamic world that while we might favor Israel 99% of the time,
once in a while we would throw the Muslim world a scrap. Note: America's actions
in Serbia never were about halting ethnic cleansing. If that had been our
motivation the same president that was bombing bridges in heart of Orthodox
Europe while taking sides in a civil war, would have bombed Rwanda then (and
we'd be in Darfur now) and have stopped those actual genocides. And now Russia
is sending a message too, by attacking the pro-Western Georgia. And, yes,
Georgia is also an Orthodox country, but it too is being used to send a message:
we will hit back.
Europe may see itself as wholly secular these days but George Bush is
your typical American Protestant evangelical exporting his version of Jesus as
the Lord-Of-Consumerism and "democracy" to the world. In defense of
his war on Iraq, Bush said that he believed that God wanted all people to be
free. His idea of freedom is the interdenominational Protestant/American
President Bush was willing to impose this vision by brutal force of arms.
Clinton and Bush both
bought into the idea that America is specially called by God to
"civilize" the world by imposing our version of Protestant/Western
norms and/or to use an Orthodox country as cannon fodder to "send a
message" with. Bush also wanted to send a message by attacking Iraq. Sure,
they had nothing to do with 9/11 but hey, lets beat up an Arab, any Arab will
The United States and the West have been busy insulting and humiliating
the Orthodox world since the end of the Cold War. We have missed every
opportunity to show magnanimity as victors of the Cold War. American
evangelicals invaded Russia with missionaries, because they said the Orthodox
aren't "real Christians." We bombed Serbia. We treated the other
global nuclear power as a younger dumber cousin. We attacked their friends. We
Now we expect Russia to be logical about these matters and do what is
good for business. But we have forgotten that not everyone in this world is
ready to forgo their heritage for a fast buck. We also failed to discipline our
energy consumption, and decided to have fun instead of going green while the
cheap gas lasted. Thus we've been empowering Russia and all the oil states, by
transferring our wealth to them in order to fuel our weekend junkets to Vegas
We have forgotten that ties of faith and history have not been
overwhelmed by modernity elsewhere, as they have been in America. The world is
not a melting pot. Nor is every culture as frivolous and forgetful as ours.
We shop for church experiences as we shop for everything else folding
religion into our consumer culture. The average American (who is religious)
changes churches six or seven times during a lifetime, even changes religions.
(Disclosure: I was raised in the evangelical right wing, left and in 1990,
converted to the Greek Orthodox Church and also changed from a lifelong
Republican to an Independent voter, who is an Obama supporter.) No wonder that
Bush and Clinton just didn't get it. Religion is a game we play.
As Russia flexes her muscles we're reminded that history and religion are
serious matters for some people, not just products to try then discard. We are
also learning (again) that we had better know what we're doing before we
interject ourselves into other cultures, say by bombing Serbia, or invading
Iraq, or putting missiles in former Eastern Europe.
Apparently we still don't get it. All we can come up with is hand
wringing and/or more bellicose smart alec -- "All I see is KGB in his
eyes" -- posturing by the discredited likes of John McCain. Idiots like
McCain have amused themselves by posturing about Russia, as if we are in any
position to "do something" about a country with more nuclear weapons
than we have when we can't even "fix" pitiful ragtag little Iraq in 6
years and still can't find bin Laden.
McCain is talking tough on Russia as is his mentor Bush. And these are
the same men who have led the way in starting the wrong war in Iraq thus
stretching our military so thin that we probably couldn't repel an attack by
Canada these days. And they want to talk tough?
So why is Russia invading? It's payback thumb-in-your-eye time. Clinton
attacked Serbia. Bush and NATO have humiliated the resurgent Orthodox Russia.
The West has further humiliated the Orthodox world by recognizing the breakaway
Muslim state of Kosovo.
bombed Serbia and invaded Iraq using weaponry developed for the Cold War. Now
Russia has taken its tanks out of mothballs and is doing the same thing on its
doorstep. Someone said, "if you live by the sword you will die by the
sword." Instead of more hot air McCain-style, what we need is to admit we
have been very stupid about dealing with post-Soviet Orthodox Russia, and look
for ways to repair the damage that Clinton and Bush have done and that McCain
promises to exponentially increase.
By Frank Schaeffer, The Huffington Post
I remember the Bibles for Russia headed by many of the churches here. They thought that they would convert the Russians to their faith, but they only helped the resurgence of Russian Orthodoxy, one of the three major religions of the Roman Beast Power. Things are getting interesting. JH

Yahweh uses various plays on words in the Hebrew
Scriptures that we simply don’t see in the English language. When we read,
“And Elohim said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness…,”
(Gen. 1:26), there are many subtle messages that can be found in just these few
By Jerry Healan
of those messages is about the word “man,” which in the Hebrew language, is
Adam. Adam was made of the dust of the ground. The Hebrew word for
“ground” is adamah! The Hebrew characters for Adam are
mda (a =
m). The Hebrew characters for ground are hmda (a = a; d = d; m = m; h = h).
The Hebrew characters for man (Adam/mda) tell another story, which
confirms the truth about Adam and Eve being the first two humans created to
begin the human race. The A/a in the word Adam is the very first letter of the Hebrew
alphabet. It has to do with the number one (1) and therefore, indicates that
Adam is the one and only first man. The second letter d/d is a picture word for
“door.” The third letter m/m is a picture for water. We learn from John 7:37-39 that
water is type of the spirit, “In the last day, that great day of the feast,
Yahshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and
drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly
shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they
that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given;
because that Yahshua was not yet glorified.)”
The Hebrew word for “spirit” is ruach, which can also be translated as
“breath.” The Greek word for “spirit is pneuma,
which can also be translated as “breath.” Thus, in the name Adam, we find
that he is the first (a) man, the door (d) through which all humanity
comes into being, receiving the breath/spirit (m) of physical, fleshly,
carnal life. Yahshua is the second Adam through Whom we receive the Holy Spirit.
Man is made from the dust of the “ground.” Since the Hebrew word for
“ground” is adamah (hmda), Yahweh utilized a play on
words in the Hebrew language. The final letter in ground (hmda) is the Hebrew letter hei (h). It tenders the idea of
“lo”, or “behold,” or “the.” Behold the man (Adam/mda) from the ground (adamah/hmda)! Yes, absolutely! Behold
the wondrous power and works that Yahweh Elohim has the ability to bring forth!
Yahweh formed man (adam) from the dust (aphar) of the ground (adamah). The Hebrew word for “formed” is yatsar. The definition for yatsar is to mould into a form; especially as a
potter. It has to do with squeezing something into shape! What a marvelous
potter is Yahweh, as the Prophet Isaiah declared, “But now, Yahweh, thou art
our father; we are the clay, and thou our potter; and we all are the work of thy
Another amazing thing that is no doubt designed by Yahweh is the Hebrew
word for blood. The word is dam (md), the last two letters in
the name of Adam (mda). The Scriptures decree that the life of all flesh is in
the blood, “And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the
strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood (md); I will even set my face
against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people.
For the life of the flesh is in the blood:
and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls:
for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said unto
the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any
stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood. And whatsoever man there be of the
children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth
and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the
blood thereof, and cover it with dust. For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof:
therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no
manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the
blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off,” Lev.
The Hebrew word for “life” in this instance is nephesh. Nephesh is another interesting combination of
words, but when we come to understand the underlying truth of the situation,
then more marvels are revealed. The Scriptures reveal, “And Yahweh Elohim
formed (yatsar) man (adam) of the dust (aphar) of the ground (adamah), and breathed (naphach) into his nostrils (aph) the breath (neshemah)
of life; and man became a living soul (nephesh),”
Now look at the play on words and the combinations as a result. Yahweh
into his nostrils (aph).
Through the nostrils (aph)
we breathe (naphach) our breath (neshamah), which makes us a living soul (nephesh). Nephesh
is a combination of naphach, aph,
Oxygen, breath, spirit, is carried to the body via the red blood cells,
which look like the number eight laying on its side ∞. Interestingly, in
mathematics, the same symbol is utilized for infinity, but that’s another
story. But another amazing face is that the atomic number for oxygen is 8
(eight)! This is design to the utmost!
The blood is oxygenated in the lungs, which then flows to the heart so it
can first be pumped to the brain, the body’s control center. This is also the
center of our feelings, emotions, thoughts, etc. The blood then flows to the
rest of the body with the remaining oxygen and foodstuffs in order to provide
breath, oxygen and food for the body’s cellular structure. It is a most
Yahweh forbids us to eat or drink blood because the life (nephesh)
of the flesh is in the blood. Yahweh forbids certain things, not because He
doesn’t want us to enjoy life, but because He does want us to enjoy life. The
problem is that man casts Yahweh’s word behind and goes out to seek his own
pleasure and desires, which are not in league with what Yahweh wants for us.
This leads us to understand more concerning the creation of Adam, one
man, through whom we all, as from one blood, issue forth. The Apostle Paul
declared to the men of Athens, “Yahweh that made the world and all things
therein, seeing that he is Sovereign of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in
temples made with hands; Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he
needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things; And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the
earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the
bounds of their habitation; That they should seek Yahweh, if haply they might
feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in
him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets
have said, For we are also his offspring. Forasmuch then as we are the offspring
of Elohim, we ought not to think that the headship is like unto gold, or silver,
or stone, graven by art and man's device. And the times of this ignorance Yahweh
winked at; but now commandeth all men every where to repent: Because he hath
appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that
man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that
he hath raised him from the dead,” Acts 17:24-31.
The Hebrew, once again, for blood is md (dam). The Hebrew term for “one” is echad (dCa), but also the Hebrew letter
for “one” is the aleph (a). The one man from whom all peoples have issued is the
first man Adam (mdah [Ha Adam]).
Thus, Adam (mda)
can mean “one (a) blood (md)!
The first five books of the Bible are called the Torah. In the Torah
there are found commandments, statutes, judgments and teachings, which are good
for us to read, learn and inculcate into our lives.
Here is another interesting concept that is inculcated into the Torah
that few people understand. The very first letter of the Scriptures is the beit
(b/b). It is the second letter of
the Hebrew alphabet and is also utilized for the number two. It is an
hieroglyphic for a house.
The very last letter of the Torah is the letter lamed (l/l). It also represents the
number thirty (30). It is an hieroglyphic of a shepherd’s staff or cattle
goad. Amazingly, the word lamed
comes from the Hebrew word lamad,
which has to do with learning, teaching and purpose. But what is even more
amazing is that the Hebrew word for “heart” is leb
If we will set our heart (bl) upon Yahweh’s word, then
we will learn and be taught of the Creator and His purpose for the creation. The
study of the Torah will bring us to Yahshua the Messiah, Who is the true
Shepherd, possessing the Shepherd’s staff (l). The lamed (l) in the Paleo Hebrew is a
closer representative of the shepherd’s staff than the lamed of modern-day Hebrew. Yahshua, the
Shepherd, will lead us to the house (beit/b) of Yahweh.
However, if we turn our heart away from Yahweh and His marvelous word,
then we will give ourselves to another master. That master is Bel/Baal (lb). That’s right folks, if we will love Yahweh with all
our heart (bl),
then we will learn and be taught the purpose of life itself. We will have a
faith and confidence, a peace that will give us strength and courage. But if we
refuse and cast Yahweh’s word behind hating the wisdom, knowledge and
understanding contained therein, then we will give ourselves over to another
master (Bel/Baal/lb) who is the sovereign of the house of idolatry,
rebellion, fear, death and destruction. Isn’t it interesting that the word Bel/Baal
is a reversal of the word heart (bl)? There are messages such as these revealed throughout
the Scriptures, which reveal the awesome mind and spirit that inspired it all to
be written and presented to us for our instruction and use. He is worthy of our
praise, honor and love with the whole heart. The truth of the matter is that the
Hebrew language is the language of revelation. The Hebrew alphabet is also a
mighty tool for revelation. When the Scriptures are converted into other
languages without the Hebrew as an interlinear, then the wondrous truths such as
these are lost. Once this is done, it is easy to deceive and mislead people into
paths that are not good. It’s too bad that the overall preponderance of
mankind casts His word behind or misuses and abuses it.
Yahweh commanded Moses to take offerings from the people,
“And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may
dwell among them. According to
all that I shew thee, after the pattern of the tabernacle, and the pattern of
all the instruments thereof, even so shall ye make it,”
The tabernacle, its appurtenances and priesthood was all anointed with
special anointing oil. This was made to be a type of the heavenly tabernacle
wherein Yahweh dwells, as well as the eternal Melchizedek priesthood. It is said
to be a “figure” in Hebrews 9:9, but the Greek word utilized is “parablole,”
which is elsewhere translated as “Parable.”
Yahshua came speaking in parables in order to keep meanings hidden (Mt.
13:10-16). According to Paul, the overall bulk of Israel were blinded in order
to cast them away as a sacrifice for the Gentiles or non-Hebrews. Yahweh gave
Israel the parables, but didn’t given them the understanding as to what they
represented. Therefore, they were blinded until the time that the veil of Moses
will be removed.
PLACEMENT OF THE TABERNACLE AND ISRAEL
The tabernacle faced the east. There was only one way into the
tabernacle, which was in the east.
REPENTANCE—The pagans worshipped the sun, moon and stars. In the early
morning, they would face eastward toward the sun in order to view its rising and
pray and worship. In order to worship Yahweh and His dwelling place, one had to
turn from the east and face west. This is a type of repentance.
EASTWARD—The tribes in the east were Judah (praise Yahweh), the central
tribe, Zebulun (habitation/dwelling) and Issachar (He will bring a reward).
Putting the meanings of the names together here we could say, “The praise of
Yahweh toward His habitation/dwelling place will bring a reward.”
WESTWARD—The tribes in the west were Ephraim (fruitful in
affliction/double fruit), the central tribe, Manasseh (forget my toil and my
father’s house) and Benjamin (son of the right hand); (all tribes of Joseph
[Yahweh will add]). Putting this together we can get, “The affliction of the
son of the right hand will add double fruit causing me to forget the toil.”
NORTHWARD—The tribes in the north were Dan (judge), the central tribe,
Naphtali (my wrestling/I prevailed through wrestling) and Asher (happiness/in my
happiness). Putting this together we can get, “I am judged happy for I
prevailed through wrestling.”
SOUTHWARD—The tribes in the south were Reuben (behold a son), the
central tribe, Simeon (hearing/ Yahweh has heard) and Gad (a troop comes).
Putting this together we can get, “Behold, hearing the son causes a troop to
LEVI—The tribes of Levi (to unite/ entwine) were positioned around the
tabernacle between it and the other tribes. Moses, Aaron and Aaron’s sons were
in the east. The Gershonites (a primitive root; to drive out from a possession;
especially to expatriate or divorce:--cast up (out), divorced (woman), drive
away (forth, out), expel, X surely put away, trouble, thrust out.) were in the
west; the Kohathites (to ally oneself) in the north and the Merarites
(bitter/bitterness) in the south.
JUDAH, in the Hebrew is hdwhy. This is very interesting
because of the “dalet”
(d) in the name Judah. The “dalet” is an hieroglyphic for a “door.”
The only way into the tabernacle was in the east. Judah was the central and key
tribe in the east. Yahshua is the “DOOR” (Jn. 10:1-9). Yahshua was born of
the tribe of Judah. Eliminate the dalet (d) from the name Judah (hdwhy) and the remaining letters
spell the name Yahweh (hwhy). Yahshua is the door to the throne of Yahweh the Father.
THE DOORS—There were three openings to the tabernacle and its compound.
The first was the opening to the compound itself wherein one came to the altar
of sacrifice. This door is called the sha’ar (r[c). One of the major Hebrew
words for goat is sa’iyr (Hebrew spellings for this word are (ry[c or r[c). Another item that has
these same characters is that for barley grain (Hebrew spellings for this word
The goat (r[c) was an animal utilized for
atonement, especially on the day of Atonement. The barley grain (r[c) was utilized for the
wavesheaf offering that began the countdown to Pentecost. Both are types of
Yahshua. They were brought to the door (r[c) of the compound to the
altar of sacrifice.
The enclosure around the tabernacle or wall was made of fine twined
linen, which would be white. The openings, doors or gates had color and were all
types of Yahshua. Their colors were all always stated as blue, purple, scarlet
and fine twined linen.
Blue is the color of the heaven above the earth and typifies Yahshua as
Elohim and the Son of Elohim. (Mt. 4:3, 6; 8:29; 14:33; 27:43; Mk. 1:1; 15:39;
Lk. 1:35; 4:41; Jn. 1:34; 3:18; 5:25; 10:36; 11:27; 19:7; 20:31, etc.).
Scarlet is the color man’s blood and flesh (not the skin). It typifies
Yahshua as man and the Son of Man. (Mt. 8:20; 9:6; 11:19; 12:8, 40; 13:41;
16:13, 27-28; 18:11; 19:28; 24:27-44; 25:13, 31; Mk. 8:38; 9:9, 12, 31; 10:33,
45: 13:26; Lk. 9:22, 26, 44, 56, 58; 11:30; Jn. 1:51; 3:13; 5:27: 6:27, etc.)
The purple is always located between the blue and scarlet. It is a
combination of the two. Painters and artists know that if we mix blue and
scarlet together, we get the color Purple. The purple, therefore, typifies
Yahshua as the Mediator between Elohim and man. (1 Tim. 2:5; Heb. 8:6; 9:15;
The fine twined linen is white for righteousness (Rev. 19:8; Gal. 3:27; 2
Cor. 5:2-4; 1 Pt. 2:21-23; 3:18; 1 Jn. 2:1).
Yahshua is the truth (Jn. 14:6). We must worship Yahweh in spirit and in
truth (Jn. 4:44). The Hebrew for truth is emet (tma).
The aleph (a)
is an hieroglyphic for the head or an ox or a ram. The mem (m) is an hieroglyphic for
water. The tau (t) is an hieroglyphic for a sign, seal, mark, signature, name, covenant.
The ram (a)
is an animal of sacrifice typifying Yahshua Who is the heavenly lamb or ram. The
aleph would be placed on the altar of sacrifice. The water (m) is for baptism in the
laver. The tau (t) is for the mercy seat upon the ark of the covenant upon
which Yahweh sits. It represents the very end of one’s journey in truth, to
the very place where not only does the Father sit, but the name of the Father
abides along with His blessed covenant
When Yahweh calls us out of this world, we repent of our sun worship
(facing the east), turning to the habitation of Yahweh (in the west), coming to
the door/gate (dalet [d]/sha’ar [r[c] of the tabernacle to accept
the sacrifice, the heavenly ram (a) that Yahweh has prepared
for us. We are then baptized in water (m) and sealed (X) with the earnest of the
Holy Spirit, which also imparts the name of the Creator hwhy in our foreheads. The only
way to the throne of Yahweh (hwhy) is through the door (d) (Yahshua), by walking in
the way of truth (Xma) (Yahshua).
Of course, one of the things that we do as believers is to repent of
setting aside another day (Sunday, Friday or any other day) for the commanded
day of Yahweh (the seventh day Sabbath). Sabbath is spelled Xbc
in Hebrew. Shin (c)
is an hieroglyphic for teeth, consume or destroy. Beit (b) is house or dwelling. Tau (X)
is for sign, seal, mark, name, covenant etc. The Sabbath, of course, is a feast
day. Therefore, the Sabbath is especially set aside so that we can eat or
both a physical and a spiritual meal in the house or dwelling (b) of the name (X) of Yahweh (hwhy).
The very name Yahweh (hwhy) is another amazing
revelation. The yod (y) is an hieroglyphic for a hand or hands. The hei (h), as we have already
revealed is for the, lo, behold. The waw (w) is an hieroglyphic for a
nail or tent peg. What did Yahshua say to His disciples? “And, behold, two of
them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem
about threescore furlongs. And they talked together of all these things which
had happened. And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and
reasoned, Yahshua himself drew near, and went with them. But their eyes were
holden that they should not know him. And he said unto them, What manner of
communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?
And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou
only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to
pass there in these days? And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto
him, Concerning Yahshua of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word
before Elohim and all the people: And how the chief priests and our rulers
delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him. But we trusted
that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to
day is the third day since these things were done. Yea, and certain women also
of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre; And when
they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of
angels, which said that he was alive. And certain of them which were with us
went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they
saw not. Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the
prophets have spoken: Ought not the Messiah to have suffered these
things, and to enter into his glory? And beginning at Moses and all the
prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning
himself. And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as
though he would have gone further. But they constrained him, saying, Abide with
us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry
with them. And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and
blessed it, and brake, and gave to them. And their eyes were opened, and they
knew him; and he vanished out of their sight. And they said one to another, Did
not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he
opened to us the scriptures? And they rose up the same hour, and returned to
Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
Saying, The Sovereign is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. And they told
what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of
bread. And as they thus spake, Yahshua himself stood in the midst of them, and
saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and
supposed that they had seen a spirit. And he said unto them, Why are ye
troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts? Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself:
handle me, and see; for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have.
And when he had thus spoken, he shewed
them his hands and his feet. And while they yet believed not for
joy, and wondered, he said unto them, Have ye here any meat? And they gave him a
piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And he took it, and did eat before
them,” Lk. 24:13-43.
John 20:24-28 “But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not
with them when Yahshua came. The other disciples therefore said unto him, We
have seen the Sovereign. But he said unto them, Except I shall see in his hands
the print of the nails, and put my finger into the print of the nails, and
thrust my hand into his side, I will not believe. And after eight days again his
disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Yahshua, the doors being
shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to
Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand,
and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas

What was it that caused Thomas to declare that Yahshua was his Elohim? He
beheld His hands where the nails had pierced them. Thus the name Yahweh (hwhy), in this instance, means “Behold (h) the nails (w), behold (h) My hands (y).
John 1:1-4, 10-14, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with Elohim, and the Word was Elohim. The same was in the beginning with Elohim.
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was
made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men….. He was in the
world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto
his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave
he power to become the sons of Elohim, even to them that believe on his name:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of
man, but of Yahweh. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of
grace and truth.”
Heb. 1:1-12, “Elohim, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake
in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken
unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he
made the worlds; Who being
the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things
by the word of his power, when he had by himself
purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a
more excellent name than they. For unto which of the angels said he at any time,
Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a
Father, and he shall be to me a Son? And again, when he bringeth in the
firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of Elohim worship
him. And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his
ministers a flame of fire. But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O
Elohim/Yahweh, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre
of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore
Elohim, even thy Elohim, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy
fellows. And, Thou, Sovereign, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the
earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands: They shall perish; but thou
remainest; and they all shall wax old as doth a garment; And as a vesture shalt
thou fold them up, and they shall be changed: but thou art the same, and thy
years shall not fail.”
Col. 1:12-17, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet
to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us
from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear
Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:
Who is the image of the invisible Elohim, the firstborn of every creature: For
by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth,
visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities,
or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all
things, and by him all things consist.”
“Consist” has to do with being held together. What we learn is that
by the power of His word (Yahshua) all things were created. By the power of His
word (Yahshua) all things are upheld. By the power of His word (Yahshua) all
things are held together.
Yahshua is the Word Yahweh, or Yahweh the Word. The Hebrew term would be
The Hebrew for word is dabar (rbd). D = door; b = house; r = head. Yahshua is the door
to the head of the house or tent. The head of the house or tent, of course is
the Heavenly Father Yahweh. Yahshua proclaimed that He is the door (Jn. 10).
John chapter 1:1-3 confirms that Yahshua is the Word, thus the Hebrew term for
word confirms His sayings.
Yahshua’s name in the Hebrew is [cwhy. The ayin ([) is an hieroglyphic for an
eye, fountain, or well. Yahweh proclaims that He is a fountain of living water,
“For my people have committed two evils; they have forsaken me the fountain of
living waters, and hewed them out cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no
water,” Jer 2:13.
Jn. 7:37-39, “In the last day, that great day of the feast, Yahshua
stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He
that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow
rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that
believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given; because
that Yahshua was not yet glorified.) Many of the people therefore, when they
heard this saying, said, Of a truth this is the Prophet. Others said, This is
the Messiah. But some said, Shall Messiah come out of Galilee?”
There are those who doubt in every generation, but there are also those
who know and know that they know who Yahshua the Messiah is.
Therefore, let’s take a look that the name Yahshua in the Hebrew. [cwhy. Y = hand; h = behold; w = nail; c = teeth, consume, drink; [ = fountain. When He was
raised up on the tree, He was glorified so that we could behold (h) the nails (w), behold
(h) the hands (y); so that we may be able to

of living waters (m), the fountain of Yahshua, Whose name means Yahweh the
Isa. 12:1-6 And in that day thou shalt say, O Yahweh, I will praise thee:
though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst
me. Behold, Elohim is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the Yah
Yahweh is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. Therefore with joy
shall ye draw water (m) out of the wells ([) of salvation. And in that day shall ye
say, Praise the Yahweh, call upon his name, declare his doings among the people,
make mention that his name is exalted. Sing unto the Yahweh; for he hath done
excellent things: this is known in all the earth. Cry out and shout, thou
inhabitant of Zion: for great is the Holy One of Israel in the midst of thee.
When Yahshua was lifted up on the cross, He was glorified. The very One
Who created all things by the power of His word, Who upholds all things by the
power of His word, by Whom all things are held together by the power of His
word, had nails driven through His hands and His feet. He was pierced in the
side with a spear so that water and blood issued forth. The blood (md) is for atonement. The water (m) is for the Holy Spirit so
that the sheep might drink of the well, the fountain ([) of salvation.
Isa. 45:2-8 “I will go before thee, and make the crooked places
straight: I will break in pieces the gates of brass, and cut in sunder the bars
of iron: And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of
secret places, that thou mayest know that I, Yahweh, which call thee by thy
name, am the Elohim of Israel. For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine
elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou
hast not known me. I am Yahweh, and there is none else, there is no Elohim
beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me: That they may know from
the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am
Yahweh, and there is none else. I form the light, and create darkness: I make
peace, and create evil: I Yahweh do all these things. Drop down, ye heavens,
from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and
let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I
Yahweh have created it….”
45:15-21, “Verily thou art a Elohim that hidest thyself, O Elohim of Israel,
the Saviour. They shall be ashamed, and also confounded, all of them: they shall
go to confusion together that are makers of idols. But Israel shall be saved in
Yahweh with an everlasting salvation: ye shall not be ashamed nor confounded
world without end. For thus saith Yahweh that created the heavens; Elohim
himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it
not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: I am Yahweh; and there is none else.
I have not spoken in secret, in a dark place of the earth: I said not unto the
seed of Jacob, Seek ye me in vain: I Yahweh speak righteousness,I declare things
that are right. Assemble yourselves and come; draw near together, ye that are
escaped of the nations: they have no knowledge that set up the wood of their
graven image, and pray unto a Elohim that cannot save. Tell ye, and bring them
near; yea, let them take counsel together: who hath declared this from ancient
time? who hath told it from that time? have not I Yahweh? and there is no Elohim
else beside me; a just Elohim and a Saviour; there is none beside me.
If Yahshua is not Yahweh, then neither is He Elohim, nor is He the
Savior. The Scriptures, both Old and New Testaments declare Who He is. The
Hebrew language and alphabet declare Who He is. Let us not be fools nor slow of
heart. Let us believe all that the Torah, the prophets, the Psalms and the
Apostles have spoken and written about Him.
As the song goes, “All things are ready, come to the feast!” YEA will be observing the Feast of Tabernacles (Booths) at the Little Black Creek Water Park in western Mississippi. Travelers from all over enjoy Little Black Creek Water Park, located between Purvis and Lumberton, Mississippi, off Interstate 59. The park has picnic areas with tables and barbeque grills. The park’s 600 acre lake is stocked with plenty of catfish (not so good), white perch (yummy), bream (yummy), and large mouth bass (also yummy). The park offers scenic campsites, cabins, bungalows and a convenience store.
