OUR COVER:  This picture is being utilized to highlight the featured article entitled “Allowing The Hebrew To Teach.” We are living in a world of growing chaos and confusion, but Yahweh’s word continues to give us stability, promise, and hope if we will allow it. The Hebrew alphabet reveals more of Yahweh’s marvelous versatility in His ability to reveal the deepest truths. HalleluYah!!!!!

Are you planning on sending your children to college? If so, they need to be prepared beforehand to face an onslaught of criteria that is going to cause them to question everything you have sought to teach them about our great Creator. The liberal, atheistic mindset is being ardently pushed by the college/university instructors.

Texarkana (the nearest large city to our very small Atlanta, Texas) now has an extension of Texas A & M University. Our oldest daughter told us that she didn’t want any of her children attending that college because by the time of graduation, all of the students have embraced evolution and atheism. She has a little inside knowledge about the situation because she is a hair dresser and so many of her customers have come in complaining about what the college is doing to their children. I’m talking about people who have a good bit of money.

I have just viewed a video from a website that was revealing. A Dean of Students and professor from Florida International University, was teaching in her class that the Bible is nothing more than a myth. Here is what she said, “The truth of a given myth is very different than the truth of, say, science. The truth of a myth cannot be demonstrated to the satisfaction of everybody. The way that myth is true is that it expresses itself in metaphor. God is love…that’s a metaphor. The Bible is a book of myths. That’s going to upset some of you, but I don’t really care. (chuckle) I won’t even ask to show your hands, but I know that some of you out there are creationists. You don’t believe in evolution. I personally don’t believe you should be allowed to leave our university with that belief.”

I would have to respond to her by saying, The falsehood of evolution can’t be demonstrated to the satisfaction of everyone. Yahweh says, “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter! Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!” Isa. 5:20-21.

Isn’t it interesting that their science says that all of the universe that exists had a beginning. Doesn’t the Bible say that? “In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth,” Gen. 1:1. They just don’t want it to have been created. They only want to believe the idiotic myth that everything we see evolved and developed on its own for no reason, no purpose.

Isn’t it interesting that man is the only creature who is able to do what he has done? Man was made sovereign over the earth (according to Scripture, all of you disbelieving atheists). Whatever man sets his mind to do, he is able to think about it, and generally design and build it. My grandparents came from an era where there was no flight or automobiles. Travel to the moon was just a pipedream. What other creature has set its mind to do the things that man has? All other creatures live in the environment made for them. The only effect that they have on it is to eat of its food, build their nests, dens, etc., and fertilize the earth with the casting they leave behind.  But how many of them even consider whether evolution is true or not? How many of them design and build homes, schools, universities of higher learning, learn to build a special transportation system on the earth, in the air, and under the earth. How many of them build special weapons to destroy, or defend?

Man was made in the image of His Creator. No other animal was made in that fashion. Man’s existence is another infallible proof that a Creator exists. Man, like his Creator, has an awareness that is far above that of the animals. Evolution does exactly what Isaiah says, they put darkness for light, and light for darkness.

Man is greatly suffering from the effects of the teachings of evolution in today’s world. In accordance with evolution, there is no hope, no purpose. All we can do in this life is get all we can while the getting is good, because that’s all we have. There is no real future. Nothing beyond this insufferable existence. I really would like to be around, and hope I am when the heavens are rolled back like a scroll so people can see the face of He Who sits on the heavenly throne, “And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Rev. 6:14-17. Can’t you just imagine the looks on their faces when this event takes place?

The truth of Yahweh is very soon going to shine forth. The overpowering truth of that light is going to send the servants of the myth (great lie) of evolution and atheism scrambling for cover. The growth and increase of Satan’s deceptive sway over mankind is just another sign that we are at the end of the age. Old ages end in chaos and confusion, but new ages begin with the power and light of Yahweh. Even the millennial rule is going to end in chaos and confusion because the serpent Satan must be loosed for a little season, but Yahweh always wins in the end. HalleluYah!!!!!  JH  



The Hebrew language and alphabet is the language and alphabet of revelation. This is a foreign concept to those who speak English, and also to those who focus on the Greek Scriptures, but it is the truth. By Jerry Healan

I want to focus on the Hebrew alphabet, to show you some of the most amazing things that are contained therein, when we look at the Hebrew terms and analyze how they are arranged.

The first letter of the Hebrew alphabet is the aleph (a/a in Pictorial, and Paleo Hebrew). The Hebrew letters are not only letters for the make-up of words, but they also serve as numbers and pictures (hieroglyphics).

The aleph is a picture of the head of an ox, which indicates strength, that which is chief, a head, first, the number one. It is equivalent to our letter A.

The second letter of the Hebrew alphabet is the beit (b/b). The beit is a picture of a house, tent, temple, family, household, etc. It is also the number two. It is equivalent to our letter B/b.

Interestingly, the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet in combination (ba/ba) is Ab/Av, which forms the most basic Hebrew word for father. (The Hebrew reads from right to left.) Thus, the father is the head of the house, tent, temple, family, household. These two first letters of the alphabet in combination, reveal that the Father is the One Who is first and foremost. The Hebrew alphabet itself reveals that the Father is the One Who is First, chief, head, the strength of the house, the tent, temple, family. Notice that the second letter also represents the number two. There can’t be a family with only one. A family is composed of two or more. A head without a body is dead. The Father is head of the house, tent, temple, family. The beit reveals that there is another member of the house, the family Who the father is head over.

Now I want to take the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet and insert another letter, the fifth letter of the alphabet, the hei, between them           (bea/bha). I have just constructed the masculine Hebrew word for love (ahab/ahav).

The hei (e/h) has to do with revelation, to behold, lo, a window. Look at the pictorial Hebrew. It looks like a man who is suddenly surprised, or shocked. Placing the hei in the middle of the word for father has to do with revealing the innermost being of the Father. He is love. He has a great love for us and all of His creation! John writes, "He that loveth not knoweth not Elohim/Yahweh; for Elohim/Yahweh is love (bea)," 1 Jn. 4:8.

 "And we have known and believed the love (bea) that Elohim/Yahweh hath to us. Elohim/Yahweh is love (bea); and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in Elohim/Yahweh, and Elohim/Yahweh in him" 1 Jn. 4:16.

The hei is the numerical value 5 because it is the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. When we add the letters in love together we get the result of eight ([a] = 1 + [e] = 5 + [b] = 2 = 8). While seven is the number of rest, blessing, holiness, and even spiritual perfection (see Gen. 1 and 2), eight is a surplus above the perfect seven and is therefore the number for a “new beginning!”

Yahshua declared, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love (bea) one another; as I have loved (bea) you, that ye also love (bea) one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love (bea) one to another," Jn. 13:34-35.

The Hebrew words for eight and/or eighth are shimini (inims/ynymc), and shemoneh (enms/hnmc). The primitive root word for eight is shemen (oil/nms/nmc). The olive oil is a type of the Holy Spirit. Shemini has two yods, or hands in it. When we are called, repent, and are baptized in Yahshua’s name, then we have hands laid upon us for the anointing of the Ruach HaQodesh (Holy Spirit). The Spirit of Yahweh imparts His love to (bea) us through His Spirit. We also become a NEW PERSON!

The numerical value of shimini is 410. It just so happens that the numerical value of shema (oms/[mc), to hear and obey, is 410, also kodesh (cdwq = holy/clean/pure/set apart), and mishkan (nkcm = dwelling place). Wow! Yahweh declares us to be holy, clean, pure, set apart (saints - cdwq) in Yahshua. Yahweh anoints us as His dwelling place (mishkan - nkcm)! We are called to hear and obey (shema = oms)!


The hei in the Hebrew word for love expresses how Yahweh reveals His love to us. The hei is the fifth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The number 5 is the number for grace.

"Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with Yahweh through our Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of Yahweh. And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; And patience, experience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love  (ahab/ahav = 8) of Yahweh is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit (oil/shemen) which is given unto us. For when we were yet without strength, in due time the Messiah died for the unrighteous. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But Yahweh commendeth his love (ahab/ahab =8) toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, the Messiah died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to Yahweh by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. And not only so, but we also joy in Yahweh through our Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah, by whom we have now received the atonement," Ro. 5:1-11.

 "And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. For Yahweh so loved (bea) the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For Yahweh sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of Yahweh," Jn. 3:13-18.

Grace in Hebrew is chen (nh/nj). The letters are chet (h/j) and nun (n/n).

The chet is the picture of a fence, or an inner room. The nun is the picture of a seed, offspring, heir, or fish (for activity).

Thus, if you are under grace, then you have become a seed, an heir, an offspring of Yahweh, and he has placed a fence around you for protection, that is.....His loving grace. "For as many as are led by the Spirit of Elohim, they are the sons of Elohim. For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of Elohim: And if children, then heirs; heirs of Elohim, and joint-heirs with the Messiah; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together," Ro. 8:14-17.

The chet (h/j)is the eighth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which represents a new beginning, while the nun (n/n) represents the number 50, that is, freedom, liberty, jubilee, life. Paul understood this when he wrote, "Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech: And not as Moses, which put a vail over his face, that the children of Israel could not stedfastly look to the end of that which is abolished: But their minds were blinded: for until this day remaineth the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in the Messiah. But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Master, the vail shall be taken away. Now the Master is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Master is, there is liberty (n/n). But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of Yahweh, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of Yahweh," 2 Cor. 3:12-18.

Again, he wrote, "For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty (n/n); only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love (bea) serve one another," Gal. 5:13. (See also Ro. 6:1-4).


The Prophet Zechariah is inspired to record, "And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep, And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof: And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my master? Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my master. Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of Yahweh unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith Yahweh of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it. Moreover the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying, The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that Yahweh of hosts hath sent me unto you. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of Yahweh, which run to and fro through the whole earth," Zech. 4:1-10.

"Hear now, O Yahshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH. For behold the stone that I have laid before Yahshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith Yahweh of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. In that day, saith Yahweh of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree," Zech 3:8-10.

It is written, "Then came Peter to him, and said, Master, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times? Yahshua saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, Until seventy times seven," Mt. 18:21-22.

Stone in Hebrew is eben (nba/nba). This one word can be divided into two words. The first Hebrew word is Ab/Av (ba/ba) = Father, the second is Ben (nb/nb) = Son. The common letter to these words is the beit (b/b), which is the house, tent, temple, family, which also represents the number two. So we have two in one, that is the Father and the Son are one stone. They are of the same house, tent, temple, family. Didn't Yahshua declare, "I and My Father are one." (Jn. 10:30)? Doesn't Yahweh proclaim, "Hear O'Israel, Yahweh your Elohim is one Yahweh." (Dt. 6:4)?

The Hebrew number for seventy is the ayin (o), which is also the picture of an eye. Seventy times seven, is just another way to refer to the stone (eben - nba) on which is seven eyes (o). This reveals the grace, mercy, favor that we receive through the father (ba) and the son (nb) Who are together, one stone (nba).

Are you beginning to get the picture?


Now, let's build a word from the Hebrew letters. The very first letter utilized in the Hebrew Scriptures is the beit (b/b). As we already know, the beit is an hieroglyphic for a house, tent, temple, family, household, etc.

Let's add another Hebrew letter to this beit. Let's add the Hebrew letter resh (r/r), which is an hieroglyphic for a head. We have just made one of the two Hebrew words for son, which is the Hebrew word bar. From these two letters we learn that a son (rb/rb) is a head (r/r) of the house, tent, temple, family (b/b).

Let's add another letter. Let's add the letter yod (i/y), which is an hieroglyphic for a hand, or arm. By adding the yod to the Hebrew word son (bar/irb/yrb) we have created the words "My Son." Or we could even say "The Son's hand." But generally speaking, when a yod is added to the end of a Hebrew word, it gives the idea of possession, or "MY."

But isn't a son not only a head of the family, but isn't he also a hand or arm of the family? Didn't Yahweh tell Yahshua to sit at His right hand until He made His enemies His footstool? (Psa. 110:1-5). Didn't Yahweh proclaim that He made everything by His right hand and holy arm? "Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together," Isa. 48:12-13.


Isn't it interesting that the Apostle John wrote, "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. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.....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 Elohim. 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," Jn. 1:1-5, 10-14.

The Hebrew word for "word" is dabar (rbd/rbd). The Hebrew letters are dalet (d/d), beit (b/b), and resh (r/r). The dalet is an hieroglyphic for a door. Yahshua is the WORD (rbd/rbd). He declared that He is the door (dalet/d/d), "Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that entereth not by the door into the sheepfold, but climbeth up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. But he that entereth in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. To him the porter openeth; and the sheep hear his voice: and he calleth his own sheep by name, and leadeth them out. And when he putteth forth his own sheep, he goeth before them, and the sheep follow him: for they know his voice. And a stranger will they not follow, but will flee from him: for they know not the voice of strangers. This parable spake Yahshua unto them: but they understood not what things they were which he spake unto them. (NOTE: Parables are given to keep things hidden Mt. 13:10-17.) Then said Yahshua unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep," Jn. 10:1-11.

Notice that the last two letters of the Hebrew word for "word" (dabar/      rbd/rbd) are the beit (b/b) and resh (r/r). Thus, the Hebrew word for "word" as it relates to Yahshua, is declaring that He is the Son/Bar (rb/rb) who is the door/dalet (d/d). But it is also declaring that He is the door (dalet d/d) to the house's (beit b/b) head (resh r/r). "Yahshua saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me," Jn. 14:6.

John decrees, all things were made by this WORD. The Psalmist agrees because he writes, "Rejoice in Yahweh, O ye righteous: for praise is comely for the upright. Praise Yahweh with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise. For the word of Yahweh is right; and all his works are done in truth. He loveth righteousness and judgment: the earth is full of the goodness of Yahweh. By the word of Yahweh were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. He gathereth the waters of the sea together as an heap: he layeth up the depth in storehouses. Let all the earth fear Yahweh: let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him. For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast," Psa. 33:1-9.

Yahshua is THE WORD OF YAHWEH and being the word of Yahweh He is the Son who is the door! This is all revealed in the word dabar          (rbd/rbd). Again, John writes, "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;) That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Yahshua the Messiah," 1 Jn. 1:1-3.

John declares that Yahshua is the beginning. He declares that Yahshua is the WORD OF YAHWEH! He declares that He is the WORD OF LIFE! He declares that Yahshua is ETERNAL LIFE! He declares that Yahshua MADE ALL THINGS!

If you believe this, then you are greatly blessed. If you don't believe it then you don't have the Son, (you are in the state of rejecting Him) and are not understanding what the Scriptures and the Hebrew language are declaring to us! These may sound like strong words, but whether you like it or not, they are the TRUTH!

TRUTH the way, is the TRUTH. The Hebrew word for truth is emet (tma/tma). The letters are aleph (a/a), mem (m/m), and tau (t/t). The aleph and tau are the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Yahshua said that He is the aleph and tau, "I am Aleph and Tau, saith the Master, Which is, and Which was, and Which is to come, the Almighty," Rev. 1:8. Again, He declares that He is the First and Last, "And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. And He laid His right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not: I am the First, and the Last," Rev. 1:17.

The aleph and tau represent Him as the first and the last, the beginning and ending. Here is Yahshua proclaiming that He is the first and last. Yahweh proclaims, "Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I Yahweh, the first, and with the last; I am he," Isa. 41:4. Isaiah writes again, "Ye are my witnesses, saith Yahweh, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no Elohim formed, neither shall there be after me," Isa. 43:10. Isaiah further writes, "Thus saith Yahweh the King of Israel, and his redeemer Yahweh of hosts; I am the first, and I am the last; and beside me there is no Elohim," Isa. 44:6. One more time, "Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. Mine hand also hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spanned the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together," Isa. 48:12-13.

Haven't we already dealt with Isaiah 48:12-13? Either Yahshua is exactly Who He is claiming to be, or He is speaking blasphemies. The situation is that He is the truth, which never changes. He always has been, and always will be. We exist because He exists. We exist because He spoke us into existence. As long as we are in Him, then we will live as long as He lives. "Yahshua the Messiah the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever," Heb. 13:8.

The mem (m/m) in the word for truth is an hieroglyphic for water. Water is a type of spirit (Jn. 7:37-39). Thus truth is the spirit of the aleph and tau. Truth is eternal. John says that the Word that they handled was eternal life (1 Jn. 1:1-3).


But let's continue building our word. We had the word My Son spelled out (irb/yrb) beit (b/b), resh (r/r), and yod (i/y). Now, I want to add a tau (t/t) to this word. This is how it will look: tirb/tyrb. We have just spelled the Hebrew word beriyt/COVENANT! It is through Yahshua that we are able to enter into a covenant relationship with the Father.

In this instance, we could say that the idea portrayed is "My Son's covenant!" We are able to enter into a covenant relationship with the Father because of His Son's CROSS! Yahshua died on a cross so that we could enter into a covenant relationship with the Father!

This is why the Hebrew letters of Yahweh's name portray the nails driven through His hands, as the name Yahweh efei/hwhy gives us the idea of Yod = hand (i/y), Hei = behold/reveal/HEY! (e/h), waw = nail (f/w), Hei = behold/reveal/HEY! (i/h).

What did He say to Thomas? "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," Jn. 20:27. Wasn't He telling Thomas to put his finger in the nail holes that were in His hands?

What was Thomas' response? "And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Master and my Elohi. Thomas would actually have said, "Adonai ve Elohi," Which is Hebrew for My Master or Lord (Adonai), and My El/Elohim (Elohi). Check it out for yourself. Who was Thomas declaring that Yahshua was? He understood that Yahshua was Yahweh!

Yahshua declared, "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.)," Jn. 7:37-39.

The name Yahshua in the Hebrew is quite revealing. The first three letters are yod, he, waw (fei), or hand, behold, nail. The last two letters are shin (s) and ayin (o). The shin is a picture of teeth through and with which we eat and drink (consume). The ayin is an eye, well or fountain. Once the nail (f) is beheld (e) as driven through the hand (i), then Yahshua has been glorified and we can drink (s) of the fountain (o) of living waters, and eat of the true bread from heaven.

Isaiah is inspired to declare, "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 out of the wells of salvation," Isa. 12:1-3

Yahshua declares, "And he said unto me, It is done. I am Aleph and Tau, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely," Rev. 21:6. HalleluYah!!!!!


But we don't want to stop even yet! Let's add another letter to this Hebrew word beriyt (tirb/tyrb: My Son's covenant). Let's add an ayin (o/[) to the beginning of this word. The resultant word is tirbo/tyrb[. This letter ayin is the hieroglyphic for an eye, fountain, or well. But we have just created the word for the Hebrew language, the Hebrew word for its own writing (Ibriyt = Hebrew). Therefore, the Hebrew language and alphabet is the well, the fountain, the eye of Yahweh. It is His language. His word of truth of both testaments was primarily inspired in the Hebrew language, with a smattering of the sister language Aramaic.

If we drop off the last letter of the word beriyt, the tau, and add the ayin to the beginning of the word like this: irbo/yrb[, we have just construced the Hebrew word Ibriy that identifies the Hebrew people. Abram (later Abraham) was the first to be called a Hebrew, "And there came one that had escaped, and told Abram the Hebrew; for he dwelt in the plain of Mamre the Amorite, brother of Eshcol, and brother of Aner: and these were confederate with Abram," Gen. 14:13.

"The Hebrew" is translated from Ha Ibriy (irboe/yrb[h). The hei (e/h) precedes the word to present the article "the."

Thus, the Hebrew is always in Yahweh's eye. The Hebrew is his Son's fountain or well. Hebrew is His language. That is why we must become a Hebrew if we are to receive salvation. That is because Yahweh established His covenant with Abraham, the Hebrew. Abraham also becomes our father through Yahshua. We become children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob/Israel....Hebrews, but more than that, we become children, sons, and daughters of Elohim.


This witness is a witness of the Father and the Son. Yahshua said that He is the way to the Father, "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. 14:6-11.

Yahshua told the people of His day, "....the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son: That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him. Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of Elohim: and they that hear shall live. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself; And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation. I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me. If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true. There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true. Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth. But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved. He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light. But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me. And 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. And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not," Jn. 5:22-38.

Yahshua told His disciples that He would send the Holy Spirit to them so they could have the power to witness, "And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me. Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved the Messiah to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are witnesses of these things. And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high," Lk. 24:44-49.

The Apostle John records, "If ye love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you. He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.... But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me: And ye also shall bear witness, because ye have been with me from the beginning.... Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged," Jn. 14:15-21; 15:26-27; 16:7-11.

Finally, in Acts chapter one we read, "When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Master, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth," vv. 6-8.


The Heavenly Father is first and foremost in all things as is witnessed by the Hebrew language. He is love, and His love is revealed to us by the grace that we receive through His Son Yahshua the Messiah. The Father and Son are One in their desire to grant to us the life and liberty that we receive through this magnificent love and grace. Yahshua, Who created all things, was lifted up, glorified so that we can now drink from the well of salvation, the fountain of living waters.



The third letter of the Hebrew alphabet is the gimel (g/g/c). Its name associates it with the camel (gamal). The Hebrew letters for its name are lmg/lmg/lmc (Modern Hebrew/Paleo Hebrew/Pictorial Hebrew respectively).  Dr. Frank Seekins gives a little history, "From the Hebrew-Phoenician Gimel the Greek letter Gamma was formed, no longer a picture, it became the Greek "g" sound. Next the Etruscans used this letter for a "c" (as in cat) sound. Then the Romans used it both for the "c" and "g" sounds and then made two letters, which finally became our modern letters "C" and "G." (Hebrew Word Pictures, p. 21)

It serves as the number "three" (3) in the Hebrew language. This is important for us to explore because we live in a three dimensional world; that is; we measure (1) height, (2) width, and (3) depth. Our existence consists of three major things, (1) solid (bone and flesh), (2) liquid (water and blood), and (3) gas (breath/oxygen, etc.). We live in the (1) past, (2) present, and (3) future. Our language is written in these same three tenses. Yahweh proclaims that He is the (1) rock (solid [Dt. 32:4]), (2) a fountain of living waters (liquid [Jer. 2:13; 17:13]), and (3) spirit (ruach, which also means air, wind, breath, etc. [Jn. 4:24]). He certainly lives in the past, present and future, for He is the Eternal One! We know that the heavenly family of Elohim presently consists of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Michael Monk writes, "Gimmel has the gematria of three, a number which alludes to the concept that two opposing factors must be blended to form a third, more perfect, entity. Maharal explains that the Oneness of aleph denotes ultimate perfection that exists only with [Elohim] and the duality of beis (beit) implies diversity and heterogeneity, multiplicity, and incompatibility. However, the gimmel signifies the capacity to neutralize the dissimilarity of two contrasting forces and unite them into a lasting and more wholesome unit (Gevuros 58)." (The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet, p. 74)

Robert M. Haralick follows this up by writing, "The third letter of the Hebrew alphabet is Gimmel, g, spelled lmg (gimmel). The number three signifies the combining of the two energy intelligences of a (aleph) and B (beit) into a perfect third energy intelligence g (gimmel). Hence, g is the organic nourishing activity of B animated by a. The Maharal explains that the g signifies the capacity to neutralize the dissimilarity of two contrasting forces and unite them into a lasting and more wholesome unit.

How does it do this? It does it by openly attaching itself to the a within the energy intelligence of the B, thereby forming the word almg (gimla), which means a bridge uniting two areas.

(NOTE: A review of our articles (now booklets) concerning water and light reveals that even they consist of three things. Water is H2O, or H-O-H (2 parts hydrogen, 1 part oxygen) with the oxygen being the binder or bridge between the two hydrogen atoms. Light consists of photons and electrical and magnetic waves that are perpendicular to each other. The simplest atom, the hydrogen atom consists of one electron, and one proton, but there also has to be the nucleic force that binds them together.)

The revealed meaning of g can be understood by its cognates. There is the verb root lmg (gamal), which means to ripen or to nourish until completely ripe....

lmg is also the verb root meaning to recompense, remunerate, requite, repay, reimburse make retribution, or reward, and is also the verb root meaning to deal with, to load on, or do good to.) (The Inner Meaning of the Hebrew Letters, p. 45)

Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh writes, "The word gimel (lmyg) means 'camel,' 'bridge' (in Aramaic), 'weaning,' and 'benevolence.'....In Aramaic, the word gamla (almg) means 'a bridge,' which symbolizes the connecting forces inherent in nature, such as electricity, magnetism, and gravity." (The Alef-Beit, p. 58)

The more ancient Pictorial Hebrew form of gimel looks like a foot (c), while the Paleo Hebrew of David's day looks like the head of a camel (g). It is stated that the modern day gimel (g) is more like a conduit or pipe with a head on its top to receive things from heaven and cause them to flow downward to the foot.

Let's take a look at this as to how it would relate to Yahshua the Messiah. One of the ideas of the Paleo Hebrew gimel has to do with being "lifted up" because the camel lifts its head up high. The camel is also a beast of burden. It is interesting that the Hebrew word "ga'al" (lag) means to redeem, a kinsman redeemer.

Take a look at the word more closely. The last two letters are lamed (l) and aleph (a), which in combination make the word "El" (la). Thus, ga'al (lag) gives us the idea that in order to be redeemed, El (la) must be lifted up (g).

Remember that the earth is Yahweh's footstool, "Thus saith Yahweh, The heaven is my throne, and the earth is my footstool: where is the house that ye build unto me? and where is the place of my rest?" Isa. 66:1. " Again, ye have heard that it hath been said by them of old time, Thou shalt not forswear thyself, but shalt perform unto Yahweh thine oaths: But I say unto you, Swear not at all; neither by heaven; for it is Elohim's throne: Nor by the earth; for it is his footstool: neither by Jerusalem; for it is the city of the great King," Mt. 5:33-35.

Yahshua proclaimed that He came down from heaven, "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day," Jn. 6:37-39.

Again, He said, "....I go my way, and ye shall seek me, and shall die in your sins: whither I go, ye cannot come. Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come. And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world. I said therefore unto you, that ye shall die in your sins: for if ye believe not that I am he, ye shall die in your sins," Jn. 8:21-24.

The Apostle Paul wrote, " Let this mind be in you, which was also in the Messiah Yahshua: Who, being in the form of Elohim, thought it not robbery to be equal with Elohim: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore Elohim also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Yahshua every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Yahshua the Messiah is Sovereign, to the glory of Yahweh the Father," Phil. 2:5-11.

What Paul is saying here is that Yahshua pre-existed as Elohim, but had to empty Himself of that honor and glory in order to descend to the earth (c) and perform the sacrifice by being lifted up on the cross (g) so that He could redeem (ga'al/lag) His house, His people.

The gimel (c/g/g) represents Him in His capacity as the One Who can bring together in one all things in heaven and in earth (Eph 1:10). Therefore, Yahshua is the bridge builder, or mediator between Yahweh Elohim, and His house (Israel) because of the division that has come between them.

Robert M. Haralick also writes, "The concealed meaning of g (gimel/lmg) can be revealed by understanding lm, which when written as lm (mal) is an alternate to lWm, which is the root meaning to circumcise, which is to purify one's heart. (The Inner Meaning of the Hebrew Letters, p. 50)

Moses writes, "And Yahweh thy Elohim will bring thee into the land which thy fathers possessed, and thou shalt possess it; and he will do thee good, and multiply thee above thy fathers. And Yahweh thy Elohim will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love Yahweh thy Elohim with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live. And Yahweh thy Elohim will put all these curses upon thine enemies, and on them that hate thee, which persecuted thee. And thou shalt return and obey the voice of Yahweh, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day," Dt. 30:5-8.

Is this not a prophecy? Did Israel serve Yahweh when they were delivered into the land of Canaan? Didn't they have to be cast out because of their failure to obey Him? But now, through Yahshua, His people will be circumcised in heart and they will be brought back to the land and will serve Him with circumcised hearts.

The Apostle Paul understood this and wrote, " Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after the Messiah. For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the headship bodily. And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power: In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of the Messiah: Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of Yahweh, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it," Col. 2:8-15.

This is a small portion of the lesson of the gimel, the third letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Yahshua is the One Who spoke this world, this three dimensional world, into existence (Jn. 1:1-14; Psa. 33:1-6). He is the One that the gimel represents in emptying Himself from His estate as Elohim (c), becoming a man so He could   perform the job of not only sacrifice for our sins (being lifted up [g]), but to bring us and the Father in one, that is, so we could all live in the same house, " In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also," Jn. 14:2-3.

" And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.... 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. 17:11, 20-23.

The camel was and is a beast of burden. They are called "ships of the desert." This present evil world, which includes the god of this world, the leaders of this world, daily life, daily living, as well as the people themselves (ourselves), cast many, many heavy burdens upon its inhabitants, but Yahshua, as the gimel (g/g/c) encourages, "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light," Mt. 11:28-30.

Yahshua is the One Whom the Scriptures are revealing. He is also the One Whom the Hebrew alphabet reveals if we will allow it. Are you beginning to see how important the Hebrew is? There is so much more to be revealed and we will do so if Yahweh will allow. HalleluYah!!!!!  



Q. In the Comments Section of your lesson 2 quiz, you make the following statements, “First”, you will notice in the Ancient Hebrew Alphabet that the 6th letter is Vav or Vauv- V, not W. “Next”, in Greek, V when used as a vowel, Upsilon, it is pronounced as oo-u. But “Third,” when this same letter is used as a consonant in Greek, it is pronounced like our v. “Yahvah” Please respond:

A.  We are happy to respond to your statements concerning these things. In the first place, the Greek does not, has never, and never will determine the pronunciation of the Hebrew language. Therefore, to seek to obtain the pronunciation Yahvah (a Hebrew name) from the Greek language is grievous error.

Secondly, we know that the Ashkenazi Jews have cause the world to accept the 6th Hebrew letter to be pronounced as “vav”, however, research back into more ancient times by some other elders has caused them to discover that the letter was originally pronounced as a “waw.”

All of the Hebrew letters that make up the name Yahweh (hwhy) serve as vowels and consonants. Josephus, who was a priest, says that the name consists of four letters which are all vowels. Rabbi Arthur Green in his book entitled “Seek My Face, Speak My Name” agrees with Josephus in stating that the letters in the Creator’s name are all vowels, “mere breath” he says.

The vaw/waw does sound like a “v” as a consonant, but as a vowel it can sound like every vowel that we have in the English language. As a matter of fact, there are Hebrew words which reveal that each Hebrew letter that serves as a consonant and vowel, can carry the sound of every vowel in the English language. While rare, such certainly is the case, as I have personally observed these characteristics as I have studied and poured over the Hebrew words and language.

It is also important to understand that the Hebrew word for “breath” is ruach (xwr). This is also the chief Hebrew word for “spirit.” Holy Spirit (Ruach HaQodesh) is (vdwqh-xwr). Notice that there are “waws” in these words and they vary because in Ruach, the waw sounds like ‘oo”, while in Qodesh, it sounds like an “o”. I hope this helps.

Q. A Rabbi in here (MCC prison) states that when the name Yahweh is spelled with an “a” it means a feminine or female name. I don’t believe this. Can you tell me why a Rabbi would say this?

A.  He should have stated that because a Hebrew word that ends with the hei (h), giving the ah sound, as in the word hbha (ahavah = the feminine version of the word love) it would be considered to be feminine, as in Yahweh—masculine: Yahwah—Feminine. This generally works for common Hebrew words, but not in names….but take Judah, for instance, it is masculine. But even in this, they declare in the name Yahweh (hwhy) that the yod (y) is masculine, the hei (h) is feminine, the waw (w) is masculine, the hei (h) is feminine, meaning that the name has both masculine and feminine characteristics.
