Yahweh's Dwelling Places
A Sure Sign of the Spirit?
Questions And Answers
EDITOR: Jerry Healan ASSOCIATE EDITOR: Frances Healan PROOFREADERS:Frances Healan,Jerry Healan
OUR COVER: The picture of a replica of the tabernacle that Moses built in the wilderness has been chosen to highlight the article "Yahweh's Dwelling Places." It is our intention to get your mind to focusing on Yahweh's plan and purpose since his ultimate plan is to bring His dwelling place to the earth so He can live among men.

FROM THE EDITOR
The book of Revelation says this about Satan, “And the great dragon was
cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the
whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with
him,” 12:9. Notice that he has deceived the whole world, and this is easily
proven by reading about the Mystery Babylonian harlot who has committed
fornication with the kings of the earth, who work together to cause the
inhabitants of the earth to commit fornication (Rev. 17:1-5). In Revelation 18
the merchants of the earth are also thrown into the mix who aid in this great
It was the kings of the earth who ordained Sunday worship, as well as a
spirit or attitude of anything goes (the law is done away). They have caused the
people to forget the Sabbath, the annual holy days, as well as the true names of
the Creator Yahweh and Yahshua.
Yahshua came speaking in parables in order to keep things of the kingdom
hidden (Mt. 13:1-14). Paul writes that the apostles, and ministers were speaking
in mysteries to keep things hidden (1 Cor. 2:1-15). Yahweh has the ability to
hide many things in the Scriptures so that even when we read them, they are
bound up in mysteries so that we can’t really understand them. But what about
events that take place on earth in plain view? Is it possible that certain
events that have taken place are events that took place in plain sight, but man
doesn’t understand the spiritual implications?
In our latest newsletter we traced Esau’s inheritance. Since Yahweh became
Jacob’s/Israel’s inheritance, Satan became Esau’s. Satan is the god of
this world (2 Cor. 4:4) and the prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2; ruach
= spirit). Notice that he has blinded people’s minds. In essence, Esau’s
descendants became the inheritors of the Roman Empire, which, in turn, was the
inheritor of the power of Babylon. Rome became divided between east and west,
the eastern half headquarters eventually ended up in Moscow, Russia under the
administration of the Czars.
Interestingly, one of the main Hebrew words for the wicked is rasha. Hmmmm…...doesn’t that sound like
Russia? One of the epithets for Esau in Scripture is Duma (Edom/Eduma). The
lower house of Russia’s parliament is called the Duma. The more pure version
of Babylon progressed to Moscow, because in Babylon the king was not only head
of state, but also head of religion. The Russian Czars were both head of state
In the west, the Roman Catholic Pope became head of religion while the
Caesar/Kaiser became head of state.
In 1909 a great explosion occurred in the Tanguska region of Russian
Siberia. I converted the word Tanguska into Hebrew and found that Tan = serpent;
gush = a mass of earth; ka = to darken. The point is that since that period of
time certain things have happened to cause this author to possibly say that it
was at that time that the serpent was cast out of heaven (Rev. 12:9), or that
the announcement was being made that such was soon to be done.
Another announcement of a future event had to do with the sinking of the
Titanic in April of 1912. The name “Titanic” means; “of the Titans.” The
Titans were children of Uranus (heaven) and Ge (earth) who rebelled against
their heavenly father. Zeus comes along and defeats them casting them into
Tartarus. The Apostle Peter writes about this Tartarus or Tartaroo, “For if
Yahweh spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell (tartaroo), and delivered them into chains of
darkness, to be reserved unto judgment…,” 2 Pet. 2:4.
We know that there were angels who rebelled against Yahweh under the
rebellious one known in today’s world as Satan. He also instigated Adam and
Eve to follow his lie into rebellion. He is the great red dragon that has
been/is deceiving the whole world.
The Titanic was owned by the White Star Lines, which was represented on a
flag by a red background with a white star in the middle. Satan is typified as a
great red dragon (Rev. 12:3), but also as an angel of light, “And no marvel;
for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light,” 2 Cor. 11:14.
The Titanic was the largest ship afloat at her time. She was built in a
manner to where her builders presented her as being unsinkable, declaring,
“Even God can’t sink her.” But on her maiden voyage, she struck an iceberg
and descended into the abyss. Doesn’t Daniel write about the worldly kingdoms
with Babylon as their head? Doesn’t he trace the authority from the head, to
the breast and arms, to the belly and thighs, to the legs, feet, and toes? (Dan.
Isn’t there a stone formed without hands (from heaven) that smites the
image on its feet and toes destroying the idolatrous image and kingdoms, also
becoming a great mountain that eventually fills the earth? The Titanic was
smitten by an iceberg, which is, in reality, water turned to stone. The Titanic
was a type of the rebellious world system. It was a type of the one world order,
or new world order that is being formulated by the kings, leaders, heads of
state in today’s world.
This one world government is likened to a ship at sea. Go to Ezekiel chapter
27 and read about the ship that was put together by the various nations. This
effort to unite the whole earth into one great kingdom began with Nimrod, Cush,
and Ham after the flood when they united the world to build the tower of Babel.
The name Babylon is a name formulated by men to cover up the truth concerning
their designs. Babylon, in Hebrew, is Babel. It has to do with chaos, confusion,
In today’s world, the leaders of the earth are banding together to create
a one world government under the United Nations. Most people don’t know it,
but since the Great Depression, the world has been declared to be bankrupt.
America fits into this also. President Woodrow Wilson sold the constitutional
right of America to print her own money out to the international bankers.
Under Franklin D. Roosevelt, a New Deal was offered because America, being
declared bankrupt, went into the hands of the receivers (the bankers).
After WWI the earth’s leaders attempted to form a League of Nations, but
the timing wasn’t right because Americans resisted (in their ignorance).
It took another great war, World War II to convince the Americans to enter
into the great contract of the United Nations, which is an organ of Communism,
socialism, and humanism.
Since the Great Depression and the New Deal, America has been under Maritime
law! The flags of state and courts are bordered by a golden fringe which is a
symbol of Maritime government and law. We are all under the ship of the state of
the United Nations. (Read Ezekiel 27 carefully.)
The last idolatrous Babylonian kingdom of Daniel’s image was to be Rome.
Rome was the legs of iron, that underwent changes from iron to iron and clay,
and then iron and miry clay.
Rome became the perpetrator of not only Roman Catholic Christianity, but
Constantinople (the second Rome) had fostered the Greek Orthodox Church, while
Moscow (the third Rome) had fostered the Russian Orthodox Church. The Protestant
movement came out of the Roman Catholic Church in protest, but didn’t turn to
embrace the truth, but continued the corrupted policies of that church, and
still does today.
We know that both the eastern and western headquarters of Babylon fell in
the WWI, thus, it could be said “Babylon the great is fallen (the eastern
half), is fallen (the western half) [Rev. 18:2]. Both Caesars (the Russian Czar,
and the German Kaiser) fell during that period of time. But Revelation 18 goes
on to say, “and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul
spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird,” (same verse).
Isn’t this describing Communism, Nazism, Socialism, humanism, etc.?
That’s what they are, they are doctrines of devils and demons.
The media has never published the truth about the extreme cruelties of
Communism. They sow fear through terror, sadistic torture, and killings. Most of
the third world nations have suffered this great violence.
Moreover, we can tell that Satan is very angry and only has a short time now
because the world leaders have been promoting atheism, evolution, the spirit of
purposelessness to the world.
The ultimate fulfillment for the people’s of this world is to become a
millionaire, billionaire, or even a trillionaire. People acquire these riches by
being successful in stocks, bonds, big business, entertainment, government, etc.
But even if one could become wealthy enough to own the whole world,
including its inhabitants, it is only a temporary, fleeting thing.
Scientists are feverishly searching into our DNA and the DNA of all species
seeking to find a way to extend life by decades, centuries, millennia. It
isn’t going to work.
Yahshua (the stone cut out without hands) warned concerning His coming,
“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my
Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of
man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and
drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into
the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall
also the coming of the Son of man be,” Mt. 24:36-39.
People have been blinded into thinking that we evolved. People have been
deceived into thinking that there is no Elohim.
But Satan has a great problem. He has deceived the whole world with his
great lies. He has sought to exalt himself, and has, through his deceit,
deceived people into worshipping him. He is attempting to bring the world
together into a great one world government, but his problem is that he can’t
bring about unity when at the same time he is promoting division.
There is a saying, “divide and conquer,” but the only One Who has ever
been able to utilize those tactics effectively is Yahweh, not Satan.
Satan is seeking to blend everyone and everything into some kind of
homogenous hodgepodge of togetherness in unlikeness.
You can’t sow the seeds of racism and then expect everyone to live
together in peace. You can’t sow the seeds of pro-homosexual;
anti-heterosexual and expect people to live in peace. You can’t sow the seeds
of women’s liberation and expect men and women to live in peace. You can’t
sow the seeds of hatred between parents and children and expect peace. You
can’t sow the seeds of hatred between nations and expect peace. You can’t
sow the seeds of ideological
differences, religious differences, political differences, etc., etc. and expect
But you can sow these things for the purpose of destruction! That’s right!
Lies, deceit, chaos, confusion, differences, hatred are the seeds of
Satan knows that his time is short. He knows that his days are numbered.
Soon he will be put away according to Scripture. His plan is to take the whole
earth with him so that Yahweh has nothing left to work with.
Scripture does speak of wrath. There is the wrath of the serpent (Rev.
12:12-17). Then there is the wrath of the Lamb (Rev. 6:16-17). Then there is the
wrath of Almighty Yahweh (Rev. 16).
It will be much better to suffer the wrath of the serpent Satan, than the
wrath of the Lamb, or the Heavenly Father. The command is to “….Fear Yahweh,
and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him
that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters,” Rev.
Yes, the fear of Yahweh is the beginning of understanding (Prov. 1:7), and
wisdom (Prov. 9:10).
Don’t listen to Satan and his messengers with their wicked deception, fear
Yahweh, listen to His word. You will be most happy if you do.
BACK TO THE TOP
A marvelous story is being told to us in the Scriptures. But that story is also being declared in the heavens. This story becomes very clear when the two are compared as well as a trace of the history of Yahweh’s dwelling places, past, present and future are considered. This may help to clear many things up for some. May this treatise help you to understand. By Jerry Healan
Yahweh is a
great Architect. If you don’t believe me, look up into the heavens and also
look at this earth. He has made everything that your eye can see and so much
more that we can’t.
Today’s scientists have engineered tremendous instruments that can look
farther and farther into the heavens and also deeper and deeper into the earth.
We now have telescopes and microscopes that continually search for the beginning and end
of all things. The Hubble telescope has been revealing an even greater and more
magnificent heavens than scientists were ever able to imagine. Microscopes have
been made which now allow scientists to actually see atoms. But as the
scientists probe ever outward and ever inward, the end, the limits, continually escape their
piercing eyes and instruments. Could it be that since Yahweh, the Creator, is
eternal we simply will never find the ends of the heavens or the limits of the
When scientists seek to weigh and measure things, such as the
circumference of a circle or the speed of light, or distances into the heavens,
etc., they can always get close to the weights and measurements, but never get
to the exact. Their weights and measures almost always end up with numbers that
repeat for ever and ever (repeating decimals) so they always have to carry their
numbers to specific decimal points and then cut it off. This should be proof
that there is something above and beyond that which is present, physical and
exact. There is a supernatural element behind it all.
THE HOUSE BUILDER
People are home builders. Look about you in our society today and you
will see what I mean. A person’s dwelling place depends upon many factors. It
depends on what part of the earth the person or family lives in, what nation and
tribe they are born into, how wealthy they are, family traditions, etc., etc.
Even the most primitive peoples seek to build some kind of shelter in which to
live. People live in huts, caves, tents, clapboard shelters, cottages, houses,
mansions and castles. These dwelling places vary from a very temporary type to
much more permanent structures.
Did you know that Yahweh, the Life giver, is also a house or home
builder? Did you know that His present dwelling place is temporary? If you have
studied the Scriptures in-depth, you will understand that such certainly is the
Most people are so taken up with living in this present evil world that
they never consider that Yahweh is preparing a permanent dwelling place.
The Scriptures reveal that Yahweh’s present dwelling place is like a
tent, “Have ye not known? Have ye not heard? Hath it not been told you from
the beginning? Have ye not understood from the foundations of the earth? It is
He That sitteth upon the circle of the earth, and the inhabitants thereof are as
grasshoppers; That stretcheth out the heavens as a curtain, and spreadeth them
out as a tent to dwell in?”
The tabernacle that Israel made in the wilderness was
built for Yahweh to dwell on the earth among His people, “And Yahweh
spake unto Moses, saying, ‘Speak unto the children of Israel, that
they bring Me an offering: of every man that giveth it
willingly with his heart ye shall take My offering…..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,” Ex. 25:1-2, 8-9.
It is revealed that the tabernacle that Moses made was a pattern, a
shadow, a type and a parable of Yahweh’s heavenly dwelling place, “Now of
the things which we have spoken this
is the sum:
We have such an high priest, who is set on the right hand of the throne of the
Majesty in the heavens; A minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle,
which Yahweh pitched, and not man. For every high priest is ordained to offer
gifts and sacrifices: wherefore it
necessity that this man have somewhat also to offer. For if He were on earth, He
should not be a priest, seeing that there are priests that offer gifts according
to the law: Who
serve unto the example and shadow of heavenly things,
as Moses was admonished of Yahweh when he was about to make the tabernacle: for,
‘See, saith He, that
thou make all
things according to the pattern shewed to thee in the mount. But now hath He obtained a more
excellent ministry, by how much also He is the mediator of a better covenant,
which was established upon better promises,” Heb. 8:1-6
In Heb. 9:1-9 we learn that these things were figures or “parables”,
“Then verily the first covenant had
also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary. For there was a
tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread;
which is called the sanctuary. And after the second veil, the tabernacle which
is called the Holiest of all; Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the
covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was
pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;
And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot
now speak particularly. Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests
went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of
into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without
blood, which he offered for himself, and for the
errors of the people: The Holy Spirit this signifying, that the way into the
holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet
was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered
both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect,
as pertaining to the conscience.”
The word “figure” is translated from the Greek word “parabole”
which is elsewhere translated as parable. Thus, the tabernacle with all its
appurtenances, priesthood and sacrifices was a pattern, a type, a model and
parable of Yahweh’s true heavenly dwelling place.
The tabernacle that Israel made for Yahweh’s habitation was a temporary
structure just as the heavenly tabernacle that Yahweh made for Himself is a
temporary creation. The Psalmist proclaims, “I said, ‘O my El, take me not
away in the midst of my days:’ Thy years are throughout all generations. Of
old hast Thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of
Thy hands. They shall perish, but Thou shalt
endure: Yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt Thou
change them, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall have
no end,” Psa. 102:24-27.
IN THE BEGINNING
reveals that there was a point in time when the heavens and earth were created. Science even confirms this fact. As we found out, Yahweh actually spread the
heavens out like a tent to dwell in. Therefore, before the heavens and earth
were created, Yahweh had to have lived somewhere else. Where did He live? He
doesn’t tell us. But the implication would be that wherever He was, He left
that habitation in order to dwell in the heavens upon their creation.
The Apostle Paul reveals that there is a third heaven, “I knew a man in
the Messiah above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or
whether out of the body, I cannot tell: Yahweh knoweth;) such an one caught up
to the third heaven.
And I knew such a man, (whether in the body, or out of the body, I cannot tell:
Yahweh knoweth;) how that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable
words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter,” 2 Cor. 12:2-4.
In Jewish mysticism there is even more than three heavens, there are at
least seven and there seems to be a world beyond even the seventh. Whether such
is specifically true or not, is not revealed in Scripture, but we certainly
cannot deny that there are three heavens according to Paul’s writings in the
New Testament and we also must take into account the word “heavens” in Gen.
1:1. The Hebrew word is “shamayim” according to Strong’s
Exhaustive Concordance. It is a plural word as is revealed by its English translation.
When Solomon built and dedicated the temple (house) at Jerusalem, he
prayed, “But will Elohim indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven and
heaven of heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this house that I have
builded?” 1 Ki. 8:27.
Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived (excluding, of course, the
Messiah) understood that there was a heaven and a heaven of heavens. He also
understood that none of the heavens which Yahweh created could contain Him. The
word “contain” in this instance would mean “keep in.”
Just as a man can build a house to live in, the house may be his dwelling
place, but it can’t keep him in. He has the freedom to come and go as he
pleases. He may be pleased to stay in his house/home for long periods of time,
but he also may decide to leave it and travel somewhere else for a specific
period of time and for a specific purpose. Thus, even though his house and
property is where he lives, his house and his property cannot contain him,
because he can travel beyond their borders.
The heaven and the heaven of heavens cannot contain Yahweh. They cannot
keep Him in. If He pleases to leave and go somewhere else, He certainly has the
freedom to do so. But, praise Yahweh, He has chosen to dwell in heaven and
continues to rule and reign from His glorious throne. Still, we must realize
that it is all temporary.
TRACING THE HISTORY
Now we can trace a little of the history of Yahweh’s dwelling places.
To begin with, there was no heavens and earth as we know them. Yahweh, Who is
eternal, had another dwelling place. He then created the heavens and earth
moving His habitation to the heaven of heavens.
that Yahweh stretches out the heavens like a tent to dwell in (40:22). Of
course, we also understand that the heaven is His throne and the earth is His
footstool (Isa. 66:1).
the heavens are declaring the glory of El, “The heavens declare the glory of
El; and the firmament sheweth His handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and
night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, their voice
is not heard. (NOTE: The heavens are a mute testimony to the greatness and
creative powers of Yahweh.) Their line is gone out through all the earth, and
their words to the end of the world. In them hath He set a tabernacle for the
sun, which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a
strong man to run a race. His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his
circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof,”
The story of
the greatness of Yahweh and what He is doing is written in the heavens. We just
have to learn how to read the signs. If we learn to read them properly, then
they will go hand in hand with what the Scriptures also declare.
It seems that the pattern of His dwelling places fits with the patriarch
Abraham (originally Abram) who originally lived in Ur of the Chaldees. Abraham
was told to leave Ur and travel to a place where Yahweh would show him (Gen.
12:1). Abraham, Isaac and Jacob lived in tents, “By faith Abraham, when he was
called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance,
obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went. By faith he sojourned in
the land of promise, as in a strange country, dwelling
in tabernacles with Isaac and Jacob, the heirs with Him of the same promise,” Heb.
11:8-9. The Greek word for “tabernacles” is “skene” which means a
“tent or cloth hut.”
When Israel was delivered out of Egypt, they dwelt in “sukkoth” which
are temporary dwellings or tents. Yahweh ordained the Feast of Tabernacles
(Sukkoth) to remind them that they dwelt in booths (sukkoth, temporary
dwellings) when He brought them out of the land of Egypt (Lev. 23:34-44).
After Yahweh delivered Israel out of Egypt, causing them to dwell in
booths, tabernacles, tents, temporary dwellings, He command Moses to make a
temporary tabernacle or tent wherein He could dwell among His People (Ex. 25,
again). Keep in mind that these are all types, models, patterns and parables.
Not only does the tabernacle in the wilderness represent a shadow of
Yahweh’s current temporary dwelling place, but Abraham’s, Isaac’s,
Jacob’s and Israel’s periods of dwelling in temporary tents were a shadow of
the same thing. These are also foreshadows of other things.
THE SUN MOON AND STARS
The sun, moon
and stars were brought to light on the fourth day of creation, “And Elohim
said, ‘Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day
from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days, and
years: and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light
upon the earth:’ and it was so. And Elohim made two great lights; the greater
light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: He made the stars
also,” Gen. 1:14-16.
While the sun,
moon and stars were made to give light upon the earth, and to establish day and
night, seasons, years, etc., their positions in the heavens do declare certain
things to us. As the Psalm points out, “Their line is
gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the
world.” (Psa. 19:4)
Psa. 19 also
declares concerning the sun, “his going forth is from the end of the heaven,
and his circuit unto the ends of it,” v. 6.
What is this
line and this circuit spoken of here? We can begin to understand this by
examining the occurrences that are very familiar to us.
Figure #1 that we can depict a 24 hour day by drawing a simple graphic. The
circle, of course, is the earth. The line represents the horizon. All above the
line is the daylight portion of a 24 hour day. All below is the nighttime
portion. The sun rules the daylight portion while the moon and stars rule the
nighttime portion. Therefore, the sun’s circuit is from sunrise to sunset or
east to west.
We live by
cycles. There is the 24 hour cycle of the day. The 24 hour day cycle is followed
by the seven day weekly cycle. The seven day weekly cycle is followed by the
monthly or lunar cycle. A lunar cycle is the period of time it takes (about
29-1/2 days) for the moon to go through a phase (new moon to new moon again).
A major problem
we confront is that there is the cycle established by Yahweh and then there is
the cycle that the world has been deluded into following.
A Biblical day
cycle is generally observed from sunset of one day to sunset the next. The
modern day world’s day is from midnight to midnight. A Biblical week is the
seven day period which begins with the first through the sixth days as work days
with rest on the seventh day Sabbath (Ex. 20:8-11, Lev. 23:1-3, etc.). The
world’s week begins with rest (or actually just religious services) on the
first day followed by six work or business days. A Biblical month is the period
of time that it takes for the moon to traverse from one new moon to the next,
while the months of today’s world are not tied to the moon at all, but are set
periods of time established by the Caesars and Roman Catholic Popes.
The next cycle
that we live by is the year. Again, there is a difference between the Biblical
year and the year that the world observes. The calendar that the world goes by
is the calendar established by the Caesars and Pope Gregory. It goes from
January first to December 31st. But Yahweh’s calendar begins in the Spring of
the year traversing through the four seasons and back to Spring again.
Yahweh’s year generally begins around the Vernal Equinox.
generally consists of 12 months or moons. The beginning of His year usually
occurs with the New Moon nearest to the Vernal Equinox (see Figure #2). About
every three years, a 13th month or lunar phase is necessarily added in order to
keep the system flowing properly. Even Caesar’s calendar has to be adjusted by
adding one day every four years (Leap Year) to keep it all in balance.
people don’t realize is that there is also an annual day. When Moses sent the
spies to search out the land of Canaan they searched it out for a period of
forty days. Ten of the twelve men brought back such an evil report that the
children of Israel wept and mourned in fear of any attempt to enter and take the
land from its inhabitants. Yahweh caused that generation of 20 years old and
upward to wander in the wilderness for forty years, a
year for each day that the spies searched out the land (Numbers chapters 13 & 14, esp.
14:34) until all had died because of their lack of faith.
Yahweh had the
prophet Ezekiel to lay on his left side for 390 days, a
day for a year,
in order to bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. Again, He caused him to
lay on his right side for another 40 days, a day for a year
for the iniquity of the house of Judah (Ez. 4).
Look at Figure
#2 again. The graphic easily depicts the annual day to us. Remember the line of
the sun and moon spoken of in Psa. 19. The annual day begins with the Vernal
Equinox. The Vernal Equinox signals the beginning of Spring when many plants,
trees, etc. are springing to life. The equinox signals the period when there is
an equal amount of sunshine in the day and darkness at night. From that time,
the sun continues to ascend northward bringing more daylight time than darkness.
We can liken the Summer Solstice to noon-day because that is the period when
there is the greatest amount of sunlight and least amount of darkness. Then the
sun begins its descent toward the Autumnal Equinox. The Autumnal Equinox is
likened to sunset. It is the second period of the year when there is an equal
amount of sunlight and darkness, but the sun continues to descend toward the
south which causes less daylight and a greater amount of darkness in the day.
The Winter Solstice is likened to midnight when there is the least amount of
sunlight during the day and the greatest amount of darkness. When the sun
returns to the Vernal Equinox, the daylight portion of the annual day begins
Please keep in
mind that the Jewish people have two beginnings of the year. The civil year
begins with the seventh month of the year. The seventh month usually begins
around the time of the Autumn Equinox. But the holy calendar begins around the
time of the Vernal Equinox. Thus, the annual day begins and ends in similarity
to the 24 hour day.
that these concepts that I am explaining are rather foreign to most minds, but
then, the way Yahweh’s people are to observe days, weeks, months, years, etc.
are rather foreign to most minds in this world because the world has been led
and taught to observe them differently. That’s why when the truth comes to a
person, they are to repent of the errors (untruths) and turn to the truth.
THE GREAT YEAR
There is one
final concept that we must deal with before we get into the meat of this
treatise and that is the concept of the great year. The “Great Year” has to
do with the precession of the equinoxes through the “mazzaroth.”
to Job, “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands
of Orion? Canst thou bring forth Mazzaroth
in his season? Or canst thou guide Arcturus with his sons? Knowest thou the
ordinances of heaven? Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?” Job
Mazzaroth is a
Hebrew word which means “constellations.” While the earth is surrounded by
many constellations, there are actually twelve major constellations surrounding
the earth that are important to understand. The sun travels through each of
these constellations in a year’s time. It takes a period of about 30 days for
the sun to travel through each one. On clear nights, all other eleven
constellations will be seen except for the one that the sun is in (generally
speaking, of course).
of the equinoxes through the mazzaroth is declaring the glory of Yahweh in a way
that few have ever understood.
It appears that
Adam and Eve were created about the time that the equinoxes were occurring in
Taurus and Scorpio.
Taurus has to
do with a heavenly bull or ox while Scorpio has to do with a scorpion.
Interestingly, the name of the first man was Adam. The Hebrew characters for
Adam are mda (original
Paleo-Hebrew characters). The “A” or “a”
is a hieroglyphic or pictogram for the head of an ox! Adam, the first man, was
created when the Spring Equinox was taking place in Taurus the ox!
Equinox was occurring in Scorpio (the scorpion). The man Adam (the ox) during
this period of time was not only created, but came under the penalty or STING OF
DEATH! A scorpion stings and many of the scorpions in the Middle-East and Asia
are deadly poisonous.
of the equinoxes in Taurus were declaring what would happen even before the
event took place. They were declaring the creation of the man Adam and the sting
of death that he would come under.
period of time Yahweh dwelt in the heavens and would come down to
visit with the one whom He chose. They would build an altar offering sacrifices
and call on the name Yahweh.
world and the post-flood world took place during this period of time. Abraham,
Isaac, Jacob and Joseph also lived during the period of time that the equinoxes
were occurring in Taurus and Scorpio. The family of Jacob/Israel went down into
Egypt and eventually became bond slaves to the Egyptians during this time.
A GREAT CHANGE
called the precession of the equinoxes causes them to traverse through the
various constellations for a period of 2,000—2150 ± years. These equinoxes
work in conjunction with the heavenly bodies, the sun, moon and stars
(constellations) to declare the glory of Yahweh. They are for the appointed
times, the appointed seasons just as the sun, moon and stars rule and appoint
the days of the week, month, year, etc. The equinoxes announce the beginning and
ending of the annual day, but they also announce a more profound and powerful
witness that is, the beginning and ending of ages.
Because of the
greatness of the time frame involved (2,000—2,150 years), and the short life
span of man, there is a tendency to forget what the precession of the equinoxes
coursing through the various constellations is declaring. As stated, we have
already discovered that the equinoxes occurring in Taurus and Scorpio are
declaring the creation of Adam (Taurus) and he and his posterity coming under
the penalty or sting of death (Scorpio).
About 2,000 ±
years later, the equinoxes shifted out of Taurus and Scorpio into Aries and
Libra. It was around this time that Yahweh remembered His covenant with Abraham,
Isaac and Jacob, also looking upon the children of Israel in their bondage and
determined to deliver them into Canaan, the land of promise (Ex. 2:25-25;
Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh demanding that he let His people go, but, of course,
Pharaoh refused. Yahweh caused a series of plagues to come upon the
Egyptians which not only destroyed them, their power, land and economy, but
served as judgment against their gods (Ex. 12:12).
Due to the
precession of the equinoxes, the vernal and atumnal equinoxes were shifting or
had shifted from Taurus and Scorpio respectively, to Aries and Libra. Aries has
to do with a ram and Libra has to do with the scales of justice.
Yahweh told the
Israelites to take a lamb for each house and to slaughter it placing the blood
on the lintels and door posts because on the night of their deliverance from
Egypt, He was going to slaughter all the firstborn of the land, but He would
take notice of the blood on the door and the firstborn of the Israelites would
remain alive (Ex. 12:1-13).
first month of the lunar year would have taken place in Taurus, but now the
first month was going to take place in Aries. The vernal equinox announces
spring. It is when everything begins to sprout with new green blades of grass,
leaves, flowers, etc., hence the name Abib or “green ears.”
had been serpent worshippers and were themselves worshipped as the son of god
through the Apis bull (Taurus). The Assyrian monarchs also proclaimed their
power by exhibiting the heads of their kings on the body of a winged bull.
It was the age of the reign of the bull gods. This was recognized as a
rightful power given from heaven, but Yahweh was going to shake the heavens and
the earth bringing in a new power under the symbol of Aries the lamb.
period that the vernal equinox occurred in Aries, the children of Elohim were
those who sacrificed and ate a Passover lamb from year to year. Yahweh called
Israel His FIRSTBORN SON (Ex. 4:22). Those who failed to perform this ritual,
among others, were to be cut off from the people. This Passover lamb, of course,
was to teach the people to look to their Great Shepherd Yahweh (Psa. 23:1; 80:1;
Isa. 40:9-11; Jer. 31:10-11; Ez. 34:1-16, etc.) and His future Passover
sacrifice (Psa. 50:5; Jer. 16:14-15; 1 Cor. 5:7, etc.).
equinox had been occurring in Scorpio, but then shifted into Libra. Libra is
represented by the scales of justice. The scales of justice have to do with
judgment and LAW! Yahweh took His people Israel into the wilderness in order to
give them His law which was contained in commandments, statutes and ordinances.
(Ex. 20, 21, 23)
It was at
this time that Yahweh had Israel build a tabernacle for Him so that He could
live among His people. The tabernacle was a tent, a temporary moveable
structure, but it and its appurtenances were earthly man-made representations of
Yahweh’s heavenly tabernacle or tent.
Now, Yahweh not
only dwelt in the heavens, but there was an earthly sanctuary wherein He lived.
The great Creator of the heavens and earth was living among His people Israel.
Wherever the tabernacle could be found, that was the dwelling place and
headquarters of the living Elohim Yahweh.
into the land of Canaan, the tabernacle rested in Gilgal (Josh. 4:19; 5:10). It
was later moved to Shiloh (Josh. 18:9).
priesthood of Eli, Hophni and Phinehas, the ark of Elohim (the throne of Yahweh)
was taken out of the tabernacle and ended up in the hands of the Philistines for
a period of seven months (1 Sam. 6:1). When it was returned to Israel it was not
placed in the tabernacle at Shiloh any longer. The ark ended up in
Kirjath-jearim in the house of one named Abinadab (1 Sam. 7:1). It remained
there until King David attempted to move it to the environs of Zion-Jerusalem.
David had a new
cart prepared in the same fashion of the Philistines (1 Sam. 6:7, 2 Sam. 6:3),
but along the way the oxen pulling the cart stumbled and Uzzah stretched forth
his hand to steady the ark whereupon the anger of Yahweh was kindled
against him and He slew him (2 Sam. 6:4-7). David scuttled his plans and placed
the ark in the house of Obed-edom the Gittite (2 Sam. 6:10).
hearing that the house of Obed-edom was being blessed by the ark’s presence,
David had it moved to Zion, the city of David (2 Sam. 6:12-17), David having
made another tabernacle for it (v. 17).
David began to think and consider why he, as King of Israel, was able to live in
a house, a more permanent structure than a tabernacle or tent, and here was
Yahweh, the Creator and Elohim of the heavens and earth abiding in a temporary
tent. He desired to build a more permanent structure for Yahweh to dwell in, but
was not allowed to because of the blood that he had on his hands (2 Sam. 7:1-17;
1 Chron. 22:6-10).
Solomon was allowed to build the temple.
dedication of the temple, Solomon proclaimed the faithfulness of Yahweh, “...Yahweh
hath performed His word that He spake, and I am risen up in the room of David my
father, and sit on the throne of Israel, as Yahweh promised, and have built an
house for the name of Yahweh Elohim of Israel,” 1 Ki. 8:20.
“And he said,
‘Yahweh Elohim of Israel, there is no Elohim like Thee, in heaven above, or on
earth beneath, Who keepest covenant and mercy with Thy servants
that walk before Thee with all their heart: Who has kept with Thy servant David my father
that Thou promisedst him: Thou speakest also with Thy mouth, and hast fulfilled
it with Thine hand, as it is this day. Therefore now Yahweh Elohim of Israel,
keep with Thy servant David my father that Thou promisedst him, saying, ‘There
shall not fail thee a man in My sight to sit on the throne of Israel; so that
thy children take heed to their way, that they walk before Me as thou hast
walked before Me.’ And now O Elohim of Israel, let Thy word, I pray Thee, be
verified, which Thou spakest unto Thy servant David my father. But will Elohim
indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven and heaven of
heavens cannot contain Thee; how much less this house that I have builded.
Yet have Thou respect unto the prayer of Thy servant, and to his supplication, O
Yahweh my Elohim, to hearken unto the cry and to the prayer, which Thy servant
prayeth before Thee to day: That Thine eyes may be open toward this house night and day, even toward the place of
which Thou hast said, ‘My name shall be there:’ that Thou mayest hearken
unto the prayer which Thy servant shall make toward this place,” I Ki.
The temple was
to be a house of prayer for all peoples for Solomon also proclaimed, “Moreover
concerning a stranger, that is not of Thy People Israel, but cometh out of a far
country for Thy name’s sake; (for they shall hear of Thy great name, and of
Thy strong hand, and of Thy stretched out arm;) when he shall come and pray
toward this house; hear Thou in heaven Thy dwelling place, and do according to
all that the stranger calleth to Thee for: that all people of the earth may know
Thy name, to fear Thee, as do Thy People Israel; and that they may know that
this house, which I have builded, is called by Thy name,” 1 Ki. 8:41-43.
While Yahweh is
faithful to His word as Solomon declared, man is not. Toward the latter end of
his reign, Solomon fell away from worshipping Yahweh and began to worship the
deities of the nations from which he had taken his many wives.
that Israel didn’t have the heart to truly fulfill His law when He gave His
law to them through Moses’ mediation (Dt. 29:1-4; Isa. 6:9-10’ 63:17). The
Scriptures proclaim the truth of the matter. The first parents,
Adam (and Eve) were
unfaithful to Yahweh’s covenant that He made with them. They were cast out of the garden of Eden, the
garden of Elohim, the headquarters of Yahweh’s government on earth. Israel
followed Adam’s example by being unfaithful to the covenant that they had made
with Yahweh and also had to be cast out of the land that had been promised to
them (Hos. 6:7).
The law that
had been given for life, liberty and happiness had become a curse (Dt. 27:26;
Jer. 11:3; Gal. 3:10-12; 2:16).
period of time that the equinoxes were occurring in Aries and Libra Yahweh’s
focus was on His children Israel who were shepherds.
Yahweh’s people were understood to be his
cattle, his sheep, his goats, etc. The Davidic line of kings were shepherd kings.
They, along with the priesthood, were to administer judgment according to the
law. They essentially failed in their responsibility which eventually brought on
another shaking of the heavens and earth along with another change.
Israel’s failure to be faithful to the covenant that they had made with
Yahweh, He began to initiate phase two of His plan. This was announced by the
precession of the equinoxes into Pisces and Virgo respectively.
sacrifice as our Passover (1 Cor. 5:7) was what the heavenly sign Aries along
with the Passover lambs that had been slaughtered year after year beginning with
Egypt were pointing to. He was born in Bethlehem Judaea and placed in a manger
which is a crib where animals, especially livestock, eat fodder. Yahshua was the
true bread from heaven, the true food for His sheep. Angels announced His birth
to shepherds who went to see the infant and then the
about proclaiming what was revealed to them (Lk. 2:6-19).
slain at the time that the Passover lambs were being slaughtered (Jn. 19:31)
becoming our Passover sacrificed for us.
His ministry He didn’t call shepherds, but rather called FISHERMEN, “And
Yahshua, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter,
and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers. And
He saith unto them, ‘Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.’ And
they straightway left their nets, and followed Him. And going on from thence, He
saw other two brethren, James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, in a
ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets; and he called them,” Mt.
This was in
accordance with the prophet Jeremiah who was inspired to decree, “Therefore,
behold, the days come, saith Yahweh that it shall no more be said ‘Yahweh
liveth, That brought up the children of Israel out of the land of Egypt;’ but,
‘Yahweh liveth, That brought up the children of Israel from the land of the
north, and from all the lands whither He had driven them:’ and I will bring
them again into their land that I gave unto their fathers. Behold, I will send
for many fishers, saith Yahweh, and they shall fish them…,” Jer. 16:14-16a
shifting into Pisces has to do with fish. Instead of sending shepherds to
shepherd the flock, he was going to send fishermen to fish for His people whom
He had scattered into all nations of the world!
THE MOST HOLY
Yahweh commanded Moses, “And Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying, ‘Thou
shalt also make a laver of
his foot also
of brass, to
wash withal: and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation
and the altar, and thou shalt put water therein. For Aaron and his sons shall
wash their hands and their feet thereat: When they go into the tabernacle of the
congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; or when they come
near to the altar to minister, to burn offerings made by fire unto Yahweh: So
they shall wash their hands and their feet, that they die not: and it shall be a
statute for ever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their
generations.’ Moreover Yahweh spake unto Moses, saying, ‘Take thou also unto
thee principal spices, of pure myrrh five hundred shekels,
and of sweet cinnamon half so much, even two hundred and fifty shekels,
and of sweet calamus two hundred and fifty shekels, And of cassia five hundred shekels,
after the shekel of the sanctuary, and of oil olive an hin: And thou shalt make
it an oil of holy ointment, an ointment compound after the art of the
apothecary: it shall be an holy anointing oil. And thou shalt anoint the tabernacle of the
congregation therewith, and the ark of the testimony,
table and all his vessels, and the candlestick and his vessels,
altar of incense, And the altar of burnt offering with all his vessels,
laver and his foot. And thou shalt sanctify them, that they may be most
whatsoever toucheth them shall be holy. And thou shalt anoint Aaron and his
consecrate them, that they may minister unto me in the priest's office. And
thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel, saying, ‘This shall be an holy
anointing oil unto me throughout your generations. Upon man's flesh shall it not
be poured, neither shall ye make any other like
it, after the composition of it: it is holy, and it
shall be holy unto you,” Ex. 30:17-32.
All of these things, including Aaron and his sons, were anointed. The
Hebrew word for anoint (-ed) is ‘mashach’ from whence we get the word
‘mashiyach’ or messiah.
They were anointed to be consecrated as “most holy.” The Hebrew word
for “most holy” is “qodesh qadashim.” It would be better translated as
holy holies or holy (of) holies. Most people understand that the innermost
sanctuary wherein the ark of the covenant was placed was termed “holy of
holies.” There was only a slight difference between their renderings. The
inner most sanctuary was termed in Hebrew “qodesh ha qadashim.” This would
have been translated as “holy of the holies.” The only difference being the addition
of the Hebrew letter h which indicates the word “the” in the
The overall point is that the tabernacle, the priesthood and all the
appurtenances were anointed (mashach) most holy (qodesh qadashim) to be a
representation for the Messiah (mashiyach).
The high priest who officiated in the sanctuary and entered into the holy
of the holies once a year to offer the blood of atonement was a type of Yahshua
the true heavenly High Priest.
The animal sacrifices that the priesthood offered upon the altar were
types of the one sacrifice of Yahshua the Messiah.
The tabernacle, which was a
temporary man-made device for Yahweh to dwell in, was a type of Yahshua the
Messiah. It was a foreshadow of the One in Whom Yahweh, the Father, would dwell.
BACK TO THE TOP
THE HEBREW ALPHABET
second letter of the Hebrew alphabet is the beit. It would be equivalent to our English letter
B. It looks like this (B) in Modern Hebrew; like this (b) in Paleo Hebrew; and like this (b) in the more ancient Pictorial Hebrew. It is
the picture of a house, tent, temple, family, household. Its very name, beit (the Hebrew words look like this tyB/tyb/tib) in the Hebrew
language, means house, tent, temple, etc.
is the very first letter of the Hebrew Scriptures, being utilized in combination
with the Hebrew word reyshiyth (tyvar) to give us the idea of "in." The
first Hebrew word in Scripture is Bereyshiyth (tyvarB), which is interpreted as "In (the) beginning." (Remember, the Hebrew reads
from right to left.)
the last issue, we focused on the aleph (a/a/a), which is the
first letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Interestingly, these first two letters in combination as a
word (Ba/ba/ba) give us the word ab/av, the most
simple Hebrew word for "father." Thus, these two letters, in
making the Hebrew word for father, should always direct our attention to our
Heavenly Father, putting Him first in all things. These two letters, in
combination, reveal that the Father (Ba/ba/ba) is the Head (a/a/a) of the house (B/b/b).
must understand that a head without a body, or house is dead....right? So the
Father has always had another member of the house, tent, temple, family, or he
could never have been a father. This means that the Father and the Son have
always existed. They have always been members of the same house, tent, temple,
family. They have always both existed by the family name of Yahweh. The name
Yahweh comes from the Hebrew word eyeh (hyha), which means "I am."
the Hebrew word that is translated as God in the English in Genesis 1 is Elohim (~yhla). It is the plural form of the singular
Hebrew word El
why would the beit
be the first letter of the Hebrew Scriptures? Why not the aleph? Because the alephs (Father and Son) were in the house when doing
the creating. Didn't Yahshua say that he came to do the Father's bidding? (Jn.
4:34) Didn't Yahshua also proclaim that He is the Aleph? (Rev. 1:8) You see, the
is also the Hebrew number two (2). It takes two to make a family, a household.
"And Elohim (plural) said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and
over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. So Elohim (plural) created
man in his own image, in the image of Elohim (plural)
created he him; male and female created he them. And Elohim (plural) blessed them, and Elohim (plural) said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and
have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over
every living thing that moveth upon the earth," Gen. 1:26-28.
Yahshua say that He and the Father are one? "I and my Father are one,"
people find this concept difficult to understand, but didn't Yahweh make the man
Adam, then put him to sleep, took out a rib and made the woman? Didn't He then
command them to become one flesh? (Gen. 2:18-24)
Pharaoh have two dreams? (Gen. 41:1-7; 14-28) But Joseph said that it was one
dream. (Gen. 41:25) Didn't Yahshua tell the disciples that He was in the Father
and the Father was in Him? "Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and
the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself: but the
Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works. Believe me that I am in the
Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake,"
Jn. 14:10. Again, He prayed, "Neither pray I for these alone, but for them
also which shall believe on me through their word; That they all may be one; as
thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that
the world may believe that thou hast sent me. And the glory which thou gavest me
I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: I in them, and thou
in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that
thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me," Jn.
is the stone that was rejected, "The stone which the builders refused is
become the head stone of the corner," Psa. 118:22. (See also; Mt. 21:42;
Mk. 12:10; Lk. 20:17; Acts 4:11; Eph. 2:20; 1 Pet. 2:4, 7-8) The Hebrew word for
"stone" is eben (!Ba). Amazingly, this one Hebrew word is a
combination of two Hebrew words! Father: Ab (Ba) and Son: Ben (!B). Now, let's notice the connecting letter !(B)a. The Father and Son are of the same house,
tent, temple, family, household!
told His disciples, "In my Father's house (beit/tyB) are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to
prepare a place for you. Through Yahshua, we can become a member of the same
household, the same family, partaking in His family name. Remember, that the
144,000 of Revelation 14, have the Father's name in their foreheads. (Rev. 14:1)
we add a hei
(h/h/e) to bar, the second word for son, we get the Hebrew
(hnB/hnb/enb) which means to
build, or obtain children! Abraham's firstborn son Isaac, through his true wife Sarah, is
the one selected to build the family of promise. Ishmael, Abram's firstborn son
through the Egyptian handmaid Hagar, resented, hated this and has sought to slay
Abraham's descendants Israel to this very day! But Yahweh's choice, as revealed
in Scripture, is Isaac, Jacob, Israel. Our amazing opportunity is to become
Abraham's chosen children through Yahshua Who is the true Israel.
Hebrew word for son is bar (rB/rb/rb). The pictorial
Hebrew reveals that a son (bar) is another head (r) of the house (b). We can also
do the same thing with bar
that we did with ben,
add the aleph to it and we get the word abar (rBa/rba/rba), another
combination of father (Ba/ba/ba) and son (rB/rb/rb).
Hebrew word combination with father and son means to soar or fly. It has to do
with a pinion or wing. When a father has any child, doesn't he feel like flying
on high? But especially a son, the son is the builder (banah) of the family name! Yahshua is the builder
of the family name Yahweh! We know that Yahweh can fly, and also that Yahshua,
when He became the son, offered the sacrifice, was resurrected, and rose into
heaven (Acts 1:9). It says He was taken up, but He would have had the power to
ascend in Himself.
Hebrew word for daughter is bath (tB/tb/tb). It is interesting that both Hebrew words for
father (Ba/ba/ba) and mother (~a/ma/ma) begin with the aleph which is the very first letter of the
alphabet, while the words for son ben, and bar, and daughter bath, all begin with the beit (B/b/b).
want to utilize Robert M. Haralick's book entitled The Inner Meaning of the Hebrew
to reveal some other things about this letter beit.
writes: "The second letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Bet,
B, spelled tyB. it represents two, the concept of duality. Midrash Rabba states: Why was it [the world] created with a
B? To teach you that there are two worlds. Thus
the letter B represents two things joined together, one capable of being revealed and one
forever shrouded in mystery. The energy intelligence of the B can be understood relative to the energy
intelligence of the a. The Zohar teaches: The a is the image of the male principle as against the
B which is the image of the female principle. The revealed meaning of
B is tyB, which means dwelling place, house, or home. The house is a place in which we are. It is
the place where our essence becomes manifest." (p. 31)
"tyvarB (bereshyith - in the beginning) can be understood as the
word var, which means head, contained within the word tyB, which means house. So tyvarB can be understood as head enclosed by house." (p. 41)
I just want to clarify this statement. Notice that in the Hebrew word tyvarB there is the word beit (tyvarB)
that is found in the first letter and the last two letters which I have
underlined. Then there is the Hebrew word rowsh (head -var) which is contained in the word bereshyith (tyvarB).
continues, "As the head is the a and the house is the B, we have a within B or a enclosed by B. Now, var has the meaning not only of head, but also top, leader, chief, start, or beginning. So from this we discern that the B containing the a means that within B is a, the inner principal, that which is most
fundamental and most causative. Also, the a being enclosed by the B means that it is the expression of the a which is the container B of the a. And since the expression B is the only way the a can be known, the a will never be found without its container B. And from the point of view of the container B, it is the intention of the container that constitutes the a inside. From this we learn that the secret,
most hidden, place of the spiritual is the physical. (p. 41)
Yahshua came into the physical world, all the time proclaiming that the Father (Ba) was in Him. He came proclaiming that no man
had seen the Father at any time, "It is written in the prophets, And they
shall be all taught of Yahweh. Every man therefore that hath heard, and hath
learned of the Father, cometh unto me. Not that any man hath seen the Father,
save he which is of Yahweh, he hath seen the Father," Jn. 6:45-46.
things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the
Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever
the Son will reveal him," Mt. 11:27.
things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but
the Father; and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will
reveal him," Lk. 10:22.
man hath seen Yahweh at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom
of the Father, he hath declared him," Jn. 1:18.
the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have
neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape," Jn. 5:37.
cried Yahshua in the temple as he taught, saying, Ye both know me, and ye know
whence I am: and I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true, whom ye
know not. But I know him: for I am from him, and he hath sent me," Jn.
Then said they unto him, Where is thy Father? Yahshua answered, Ye neither know
me, nor my Father: if ye had known me, ye should have known my Father
also," Jn. 8:19.
"And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him,
Master, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Yahshua
saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the
Father, but by me. If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and
from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. Philip saith unto him, Master,
shew us the Father, and it sufficeth us. Yahshua saith unto him, Have I been so
long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me
hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? Believest
thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? the words that I speak
unto you I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the
works. Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe
me for the very works' sake," Jn. 14:4-11.
Scriptures, in essence, confirm what Mr. Haralick has written above.
Haralick continues: "The upper left corner of B points upward to heaven. Thereby we as a
living vessel, a living container, understand that Elohim exists and always is,
that nothing happens by chance. All has a purpose and that purpose is to help us
to grow and reveal the Oneness of Elohim. The base of B points back to a. This means that ~yhla (Elohim) can be understood only by creation itself. It means that a and B must be in a partnership ba, which means father. When we create a healthy
partnership between a and B, the a relates to B as a father to a son, !B. Father and son is !Bw Ba. Rabbi Nachman says that father means Jacob and son means his children.
Father relates to wisdom and intellect and son relates to body. When !Bw Ba is contracted the result is the word !Ba, which means stone, a symbol of permanency. There is permanency when we
reveal the light and create a blessing. Any other act has a transitory illusionary
existence, for it is only the energy intelligence of blessing that is capable of
removing illusion and revealing a cosmos that is one. Another way of saying this
is that when we desire to receive in order to impart, we reveal the light through our vessel. In this manner, we
connect to the infinite reality, we experience fullness and certainty and become
blessed. When we desire to receive for oneself alone, we connect to
fragmentation and illusion, for the desire to receive for oneself along is
always deficient, having elements of frustration, or resentment, or anger or
uncertainty. These cannot be a blessing." (pp. 41-41)
have emboldened and underlined the words light, create, and blessing for a
reason. To look into the Scriptures, and especially the Hebrew, light is
imparted to us. The Hebrew for light is owr (rwa/rwa/rfa). The Pictorial
Hebrew reveals that light would be the combination
of two heads, the aleph and the resh (the waw [w/w/f] serves as a
conjunction, or to add). In this case light would be the combination of the Father and the
Son, or even as Yahshua who is both Elohim (spirit; a), and man (flesh, r).
Hebrew word for "create" is bara (arB) while the Hebrew word for
"blessing" is berecah" (hkrB). Both words, of course, begin with the beit. Interestingly, the Hebrew word for
"womb" is beten (!jb/nfb/nub) which means the house (B) that surrounds (j) the child, life, heir (!).
the beit appears at the beginning of a word as a
prefix, it generally serves to give the meaning of in, at, by, among, with, by means of, or through.

SEARCHING THE SCRIPTURES
commanded that we search the Scriptures so we can see how they speak of Him (Jn.
5:39-47). He specifically points out the writings of Moses, even though the
Prophets and Psalms also speak of Him. But maybe He does this for a certain
special reason. You see, the very first letter of the Torah is the beit (B/b/b), and the last
letter of the Torah is the lamed
two letters, together as Bl/bl/bl equal to the Hebrew word leb which means heart. But if these letters are
reversed we get lB/lb/lb the Hebrew word for Bel, which is the
Babylonian equivalent to the Canaanite god Ba'al.
we study the Scriptures to see how they apply to Yahshua, then we will be
developing the heart (Bl) that Yahweh desires us to have. But if we
either neglect the Scriptures or simply study them in order to seek our own
righteousness (as did the Pharisees), then we are serving another master who is
