Phil Robertson of Duck Dynasty has been cast into the midst of a gathering firestorm. His comments to GQ magazine concerning homosexuality, bestiality, adultery, etc. have gotten him into hot water with the A&E channel that carries their show. Especially since A&E supports the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transvestite) movement. Of course, the heat is coming from the community that also exhibits that type of lifestyle.

I was watching one of the news shows recently, and the host mentioned that homosexuality was a sin in the Old Testament, but seemed ignorant concerning what the New Testament says about the matter. Romans chapter one reveals that men and women have been given over to that mindset because they refuse to give Yahweh the esteem of being Elohim that is His, “For the wrath of Yahweh is revealed from heaven against all impiety and unrighteousness of men, who hold (suppress) the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of Yahweh is manifest in them; for Yahweh hath shewed it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:  Because that, when they knew Yahweh, they glorified him not as Elohim, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible Elohim into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four footed beasts, and creeping things. Wherefore Yahweh also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of Yahweh into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen,” Ro. 1:18-23.

It continues to say that Yahweh gave them up to VILE affections that were against nature (unnatural). The vile affections are unseemly, error, reprobate, not convenient, etc.

Continuing in Romans, “Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of Elohim, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenant breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of Yahweh, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them,” vv. 29-32.

He alluded to 1 Cor. 6:9-10 which says, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of Elohim? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind (sodomites), Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of Elohim.

Phil was just enumerating the downward spiral of sin, which the scriptures also reveal. But Phil really has never understood what sin really is because he continues to observe Sunday worship, the holidays, etc. If you check out Psa. 2:1-3, Rev. 17:1-6; 18:3-5, etc. then you will discover that the kings and rulers of the earth have been in bed with a great Babylonian harlot causing themselves and the whole earth to commit fornication.

Please don’t get the idea that we are being judgmental here. We are just quoting the scriptures. By the way, the scriptures were given to us by a great Creator of love Who desires to warn us away from the things that hurt, corrupt, and destroy us. But the world has taken the book of love, cast it aside, and twisted it into words of hate. Why? Because those words of love warn us away from our wickedness. But if you want your own way, then you have to corrupt them, declaring them obsolete, not relevant, just a book of writings, some ancient history, etc.

The situation is that while doing those things brings about hopelessness, one can turn himself around, that is, repent of his sins and abominations, be forgiven of them through the shed blood of Yahshua the Messiah and begin to walk in the way that leads to eternal life. Paul says, “And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Sovereign Yahshua, and by the Spirit of our Elohim,” 1 Cor. 6:11. There were those in the Corinthian assembly, as well as other assemblies, who had been practicing those abominable things. They repented of them.  Any of us in today’s world can repent of them and be cleansed through Yahshua’s shed blood.

We are living in a world that is in denial of its Creator. A world that teaches atheistic evolution wherein is no hope. But begin a program right now of reading, learning, crying out to our Creator Yahweh. Submit yourself to Him through His beloved son Yahshua the Messiah, and you will find hope, faith, confidence, and a love that will endure for all eternity.

The world may be existing in a state of hopelessness at the moment, but the light of faith and true reality will soon shine through to lead the people in the way that they should go. Yahweh, please speed that day!

Psalms 68:1-4 declares, “Let Elohim arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him. As smoke is driven away, so drive them away: as wax melteth before the fire, so let the wicked perish at the presence of Elohim. But let the righteous be glad; let them rejoice before Elohim: yea, let them exceedingly rejoice. Sing unto Elohim, sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name YAH, and rejoice before him.”

Yah (hy) is the shortened version of Yahweh’s name consisting of the Hebrew letters yod (y) and hei (h). (Remember, Hebrew reads from right to left.) When we look at this name Yah in the more ancient Pictorial Hebrew ei, we get the original idea concerning the meaning of this name. The yod (i) is the picture of a hand or arm while the hei (e) looks like a little man who has just had a revelation. Thus the meaning of the hei is lo, behold, reveal, etc. and thus the title of this treatise. We want to BEHOLD THE HAND (ei/hy!   By Jerry Healan


It is through the hand of Yahweh that we obtain deliverance, salvation. When Israel was delivered from bondage to Egypt and through the sea, Pharaoh and all his host having been destroyed, Israel sang a song of deliverance, “Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto Yahweh, and spake, saying, I will sing unto Yahweh, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea. Yahweh is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my Elohim, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's Elohim, and I will exalt him. Yahweh is a man of war: Yahweh is his name. Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. Thy right hand, O Yahweh, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O Yahweh, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble. And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea. The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters. Who is like unto thee, O Yahweh, among the elohim? Who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them. Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O Yahweh, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O Yahweh, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Yahweh, which thy hands have established. Yahweh shall reign for ever and ever. For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and Yahweh brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea,” Ex. 15:1-19.

Notice that Moses and Israel proclaimed that they were saved/delivered by Yahweh’s right hand!

The Psalmist decrees, “Shew thy marvellous lovingkindness, O thou that savest by thy right hand them which put their trust in thee from those that rise up against them,” Psa. 17:7.

Yahweh’s marvelous or wondrous loving kindness is found in the salvation of His most awesome right hand!

David continues to reveal, “We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our Elohim we will set up our banners: Yahweh fulfil all thy petitions. Now know I that Yahweh saveth his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of Yahweh our Elohim. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. Save, Yahweh: let the king hear us when we call,” Psa. 20:5-9.

Psalms 98 continues the theme, “O sing unto Yahweh a new song; for he hath done marvelous things: his right hand, and his holy arm, hath gotten him the victory. Yahweh hath made known his salvation: his righteousness hath he openly shewed in the sight of the heathen. He hath remembered his mercy and his truth toward the house of Israel: all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our Elohim,” vv. 1-3.

It is Yahweh’s right hand that gets Him the victory. It is through His right hand that His salvation is made known. His righteousness, wondrous mercy, truth, etc. are seen and experienced through that same right hand!

Psalms 118 reveals even more, “Yahweh is my strength and song, and is become my salvation. The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of Yahweh doeth valiantly. The right hand of Yahweh is exalted: the right hand of Yahweh doeth valiantly. I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of Yah (hy),” vv. 14-17.

Yahweh should always be our song because the valiant works of His right hand saves us so we can continually declare His works!

Finally, Psalms 138 declares, “Though Yahweh be high, yet hath he respect unto the lowly: but the proud he knoweth afar off. Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me,” vv. 6-7.

The proud, the high and mighty are revealed to be far away from Yahweh. It is the lowly, humble, and meek, those who look to Him that He extends His right hand of salvation to, HalleluYah! BEHOLD THE HAND (ei/hy)!!!!!


King David is a most excellent source of knowledge concerning how Yahweh can and will work in one’s life. He had troubles on every side, yet his faith and trust in Yahweh caused him to know how Yahweh not only saves and delivers, but how He upholds those who are his, “As for Elohim, his way is perfect: the word of Yahweh is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him. For who is Elohim save Yahweh? Or who is a rock save our Elohim? It is Elohim that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect. He maketh my feet like hinds' feet, and setteth me upon my high places. He teacheth my hands to war, so that a bow of steel is broken by mine arms. Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath holden me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great,” Psa. 18:30-35.

It is the right hand of Yahweh that holds His people up, as David says elsewhere, “My soul followeth hard after thee: thy right hand upholdeth me,” Psa. 63:8.

David speaks of a moment of weakness when he almost went down into the tabernacles of the wicked, “Truly Elohim is good to Israel, even to such as are of a clean heart. But as for me, my feet were almost gone; my steps had well nigh slipped. For I was envious at the foolish, when I saw the prosperity of the wicked. For there are no bands in their death: but their strength is firm. They are not in trouble as other men; neither are they plagued like other men. Therefore pride compasseth them about as a chain; violence covereth them as a garment. Their eyes stand out with fatness: they have more than heart could wish. They are corrupt, and speak wickedly concerning oppression: they speak loftily. They set their mouth against the heavens, and their tongue walketh through the earth. Therefore his people return hither: and waters of a full cup are wrung out to them. And they say, How doth Elohim know? And is there knowledge in the most High? Behold, these are the impious, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches. Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency. For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning. If I say, I will speak thus; behold, I should offend against the generation of thy children. When I thought to know this, it was too painful for me; Until I went into the sanctuary of Elohim; then understood I their end. Surely thou didst set them in slippery places: thou castedst them down into destruction. How are they brought into desolation, as in a moment! they are utterly consumed with terrors. As a dream when one awaketh; so, O Yahweh, when thou awakest, thou shalt despise their image. Thus my heart was grieved, and I was pricked in my reins. So foolish was I, and ignorant: I was as a beast before thee. Nevertheless I am continually with thee: thou hast holden me by my right hand. Thou shalt guide me with thy counsel, and afterward receive me to glory. Whom have I in heaven but thee? and there is none upon earth that I desire beside thee,” Psa. 73:1-25.

David almost succumbed to their way, but when he went into the house of Elohim and considered their latter end, he woke up to the reality that his true blessings came from Yahweh who not only is the right hand, but held him by his own right hand! BEHOLD THE HAND (ei/hy)!!!!!


Righteousness and redemption comes from the right hand of Yahweh as the Psalmist declares, “According to thy name, O Elohim, so is thy praise unto the ends of the earth: thy right hand is full of righteousness,” 48:10.

The Prophet Isaiah is inspired to reveal even more, “But thou, Israel, art my servant, Jacob whom I have chosen, the seed of Abraham my friend. Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy Elohim: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I Yahweh thy Elohim will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee. Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith Yahweh, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel,” 41:8-14.

Redeemer is translated from the Hebrew word ga’al (lag [Paleo Hebrew]). Let’s take a look at this word and the meaning of its Hebrew characters. The last two letters of this word, the aleph (a), and lamed (l) form the Hebrew word El (la). The aleph (a [equivalent to the English letter “A”]) is the picture of the head of an ox which has to do with strength, head, first, foremost, chief, etc. The lamed (l [equivalent to the English letter “L”]) is the picture of a rod of authority, or a shepherd’s rod. It also has to do with a teacher. Thus the Hebrew word El, which is generally translated as GOD in the KJV, in reality, has to do with a Strong, or Mighty One, a Chief Shepherd, or Master Teacher (Rabboni).

The gimel (g [equivalent to the English letter “G”]) is the picture of the head of a camel, which has to do with something that is “lifted up” because the camel lifts its head up very high. Therefore, the Hebrew word redeemer (ga’al [lag]) means that El (GOD) must be “lifted up” if there is to be any redemption.

BEHOLD THE HAND (ei/hy)!!!!!


The plural of El is Elohim. This word can apply to one or more entities. Psalms 45 reveals, “My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore Elohim hath blessed thee for ever. Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty. And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things. Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee. Thy throne, O Elohim, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore Elohim, thy Elohim, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows,” vv. 1-7.

Who is this speaking of here? I have heard several people who supposedly call upon Yahweh’s name declare that “Yahshua is no part Elohim!” Sadly, for them, they will be found to be liars for the book of Hebrews reveals that these verses are speaking of none other than Yahshua the Messiah, “But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O Elohim, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore Elohim, even thy Elohim, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows,” Heb. 1:8-9.

Yahshua truly is Elohim, doubt it not! BEHOLD THE HAND (ei/hy)!!!!!


Yahshua told the disciples, “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. 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. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.  The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father,” Jn. 10:1-18.

Peter admits that Yahshua is the Chief Shepherd, “The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of the Messiah, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of Elohim which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over Yahweh's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away,” 1 Pet. 5:1-4.

Remember that the Hebrew word El has to do with the Chief Shepherd!

Also remember that the Hebrew word for redeemer is ga’al (lag) which means to lift up El. Yahshua said, “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,” Jn. 3:13-15.

In another place He said, “Then said Yahshua unto them, When ye have lifted up the Son of man, then shall ye know that I am (he), and that I do nothing of myself; but as my Father hath taught me, I speak these things,” Jn. 8:28.

Notice that I have put “he” in parentheses because that word was added by men in order to clarify, but rather it confuses. Yahshua was saying that He is the “I AM” who met Moses in the burning bush of Exodus chapter 3!

Again Yahshua said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.  This he said, signifying what death he should die,” Jn. 12:32-33.

Paul writes that our redemption is in Yahshua the Messiah, which of course, makes Him the Redeemer (ga’al/lag), “But now the righteousness of Elohim without the law is manifested, being witnessed by the law and the prophets; Even the righteousness of Elohim which is by faith of Yahshua the Messiah unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of Elohim; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in the Messiah Yahshua: Whom Yahweh hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of Elohim; To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Yahshua. Where is boasting then? It is excluded. By what law? of works? Nay: but by the law of faith. Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the law,” Ro. 3:21-28.

“But of him are ye in the Messiah Yahshua, who of Yahweh is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Master,” 1 Cor. 1:30-31.

“Blessed be the Elohim and Father of our Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in the Messiah: According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Yahshua the Messiah to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence; Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself: That in the dispensation of the fulness of times he might gather together in one all things in the Messiah, both which are in heaven, and which are on earth; even in him: In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will: That we should be to the praise of his glory, who first trusted in the Messiah. In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory,” Eph. 1:3-14.

“We give thanks to Elohim and the Father of our Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah, praying always for you, Since we heard of your faith in the Messiah Yahshua, and of the love which ye have to all the saints, For the hope which is laid up for you in heaven, whereof ye heard before in the word of the truth of the evangel; Which is come unto you, as it is in all the world; and bringeth forth fruit, as it doth also in you, since the day ye heard of it, and knew the grace of Elohim in truth: As ye also learned of Epaphras our dear fellowservant, who is for you a faithful minister of the Messiah; Who also declared unto us your love in the Spirit. For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; That ye might walk worthy of the Master unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of Elohim; Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible Elohim, the firstborn of every creature,” Col. 1:3-15.

Here is the situation, Yahweh is always the first and the last. Nothing can come before Him, nor after Him. Therefore, Yahshua was Yahweh (not the Father Who Yahshua came to reveal, Jn. 1:18; 5:37). He had to come down from heaven (Jn. 6:38, 42; Phil 2:5-8) in order to become the FIRSTBORN!

Notice what Yahweh says in the book of Isaiah, “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…. “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… “Hearken unto me, O Jacob and Israel, my called; I am he; I am the first, I also am the last,” Isa. 48:12. Compare what Yahshua said, “I am Aleph and tau,” Rev. 1:8. The Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, while the Tau is the last letter. Whether people want to dispute Rev. 1:8 or not, the simple fact of the matter is that Yahshua, in announcing that He was the Aleph and Tau, was indicating that He was the first and last, the beginning and ending of all things.

In His commentary, Adam Clark admits concerning this verse, “With the rabbins "from aleph to tau," expressed the whole of a matter, from the beginning to the end…. The beginning and the ending, That is, as aleph is the beginning of the alphabet, so am I the author and cause of all things; as tau is the end or last letter of the alphabet, so am I the end of all things.” (Power Bible)

The book of Hebrews continues, “But the Messiah being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us,” …. “And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance,” 9: 9:11-12, 15.

Here is the one Who proclaimed to Israel in Isaiah that He was their (and our) Redeemer. In due process of time He appeared on the earth to fulfill His promise! BEHOLD THE HAND     (ei/hy)!!!!!


Yahweh reveals that He not only created the heavens and earth by His hands, but His right hand and holy arm was the instrument utilized, “Thus saith Yahweh, the Holy One of Israel, and his Maker, Ask me of things to come concerning my sons, and concerning the work of my hands command ye me. I have made the earth, and created man upon it: I, even my hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their host have I commanded,” Isa. 45:11-12. “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. “Thus saith the El Yahweh, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein,” Isa. 42:5

The writings of the Apostles reveal that Yahshua is the One by Whom the Father created all things, “Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible Elohim, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist,” Col. 1:12-17.

The word “consist” also has to do with everything ‘being held together.” Yahshua is the force, the power that binds the atoms with the nuclear power, that binds the heavens with gravity, that binds us all together as we are.

Again Paul writes, “For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Yahshua the Messiah for you Gentiles, If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of Yahweh which is given me to you-ward: How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words, Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of the Messiah) Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit; That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in the Messiah by the gospel: Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of Yahweh given unto me by the effectual working of his power. Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of the Messiah; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in Yahweh, who created all things by Yahshua the Messiah: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the assembly the manifold wisdom of Elohim, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in the Messiah Yahshua our Sovereign: In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him,” Eph. 3:1-12.

Hebrews reveals, “Elohim, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds,” Heb. 1:1-2.

The Apostle John witnesses, “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. There was a man sent from Elohim, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 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. John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me,” Jn. 1:1-15.

The book of Psalms 33 agrees with John and vice versa, “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,” vv. 4-9.

Yahshua is revealed to be the Word of Yahweh, which in Paleo Hebrew looks like this hwhy-rbd (Dabar-Yahweh [remember Hebrew reads from right to left). Dabar (rbd) is quite revealing because the dalet (d is the picture of a door, the beit (b) is the picture of a house, tent, or temple, and the resh (r) is the picture of a head. Thus, Yahshua, as the word (dabar) is the door to the house’s head, which is Yahweh.

It is the Word of Yahweh (Dabar-Yahweh) that appeared to Abram (Gen. 15), and spoke to the prophets, etc. The word of Yahweh is Yahshua in His pre-existent state. He is the One Who spoke all things into existence! He declared that He is the “door” in John chapter 10! BEHOLD THE HAND (ei/hy)!!!!!


So now we are getting close to the end of the matter.

Psalms 110 is a Psalm about a vision that King David had. He wrote, “Yahweh said unto my Sovereign, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. Yahweh shall send the rod of thy strength out of Zion: rule thou in the midst of thine enemies. Thy people shall be willing in the day of thy power, in the beauties of holiness from the womb of the morning: thou hast the dew of thy youth. Yahweh hath sworn, and will not repent, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchizedek. Yahweh at thy right hand shall strike through kings in the day of his wrath,” 110:1-5.

It is a known fact that the Jewish scribes removed the name Yahweh from the fifth verse and replaced it with Adonai because they couldn’t explain how the One invited to sit at Yahweh’s right hand, could also be addressed as Yahweh. There are 134 places in the Scriptures where the name Yahweh was changed to Adonai. This is called the “Emendations of the Sopherim.”

Yahshua utilized Psalms 110:1-5 to question the scribes and Pharisees how David, who was a father in the lineage of the Messiah, could call a distant son his sovereign, master, lord, for which they had no answer.

The Apostles revealed that these scriptures were speaking of Yahshua. Peter declared, “Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day. Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that Yahweh had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up the Messiah to sit on his throne; He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of the Messiah, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption. This Yahshua hath Yahweh raised up, whereof we all are witnesses. Therefore being by the right hand of Yahweh exalted, and having received of the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he hath shed forth this, which ye now see and hear. For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, Yahweh said unto my Sovereign, Sit thou on my right hand, Until I make thy foes thy footstool. Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that Yahweh hath made that same Yahshua, whom ye have crucified, both Sovereign and the Messiah,” Acts 2:29-36.

Paul witnesses, “Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Sovereign Yahshua, and love unto all the saints, Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; That the Elohim of our Sovereign Yahshua the Messiah, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints, And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in the Messiah, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come: And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the assembly, Which is his body, the fulness of him that filleth all in all,” Eph. 1:15-23.

The book of Hebrews witnesses, “Yahweh, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they….But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? Are they not all ministering spirits, sent forth to minister for them who shall be heirs of salvation?” Heb. 1:1-4, 13-14.

Peter writes, “For the Messiah also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to Yahweh, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison; Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of Yahweh waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward Yahweh,) by the resurrection of Yahshua the Messiah: Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of Yahweh; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto him,” 1 Pet. 3:18-22.

Yahweh cries out through Isaiah, “O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your Elohim! Behold, the Sovereign Yahweh will come with strong hand, and his arm shall rule for him: behold, his reward is with him, and his work before him. He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm, and carry them in his bosom, and shall gently lead those that are with young. Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance? Who hath directed the Spirit of Yahweh, or being his counsellor hath taught him? With whom took he counsel, and who instructed him, and taught him in the path of judgment, and taught him knowledge, and shewed to him the way of understanding?” Isa. 40:9-14.

True Zion is those who are sealed with the Holy Spirit which imparts Yahweh’s name in their forehead (Rev. 7:1-10; 14:1-4). Notice that in both chapters not only are those of Israel sealed with Yahweh’s name, but there is a great multitude of all nations that also follow them.

Again Isaiah declares, “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy Elohim reigneth! Thy watchmen shall lift up the voice; with the voice together shall they sing: for they shall see eye to eye, when Yahweh shall bring again Zion. Break forth into joy, sing together, ye waste places of Jerusalem: for Yahweh hath comforted his people, he hath redeemed Jerusalem. Yahweh hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations; and all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our Elohim. Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of Yahweh. For ye shall not go out with haste, nor go by flight: for Yahweh will go before you; and the Elohim of Israel will be your rereward. Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high.As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider,” Isa. 52:7-15.

Yahweh bared His holy arm when He allowed Yahshua to be lifted up on the cross. Most pictures (figments of men’s imagination) that supposedly depict the Savior on the cross cover his private parts with a type of cloth, but be assured that He was lifted up totally naked. Yahweh made His holy arm, His right hand bare before the nations.

Isaiah continues, “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of Yahweh revealed? For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of Elohim, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and Yahweh hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth. He was taken from prison and from judgment: and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living: for the transgression of my people was he stricken. And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it pleased Yahweh to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of Yahweh shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors,” Isa. 53:1-12. BEHOLD THE HAND (ei/hy)!!!!!


Israel was saved by Yahweh’s right hand. Our salvation and deliverance comes by and through the right hand of Yahweh. The right hand of Yahweh upholds us. The right hand of Yahweh imparts His righteousness to us through the power of His redemption. He is our Redeemer. The hand of Yahweh is Elohim. He is our Chief Shepherd, and Master Teacher. The right hand and holy arm of Yahweh created all things by the Word of His power. His word upholds the whole creation, and by Him all things consist (are held together).

The question now is, has the arm and hand of Yahweh been made bare unto you? Has the right hand and holy arm of Yahweh been revealed to you? The first two letters in the name Yahweh (ei/hy) mean to BEHOLD THE HAND, or BEHOLD THE ARM! BEHOLD THE HAND and be awe inspired and LIVE!

The chet is the eighth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It is equivalent to the English letter H or a combined form CH. It looks like this (h/j/x) in the more ancient Pictorial Hebrew, Paleo Hebrew, and Modern Hebrew respectively. In its position as the eighth letter, it also serves as the number eight. This is important to explore.

By Jerry Healan

We focused on the letter zayin in the last magazine, which is equivalent to the number seven. Seven completes a cycle (as in the seventh day Sabbath). The number eight is the number for new beginnings, thus the chet, being also the number eight, has to do with new beginnings. Let’s take a look at the chart below:

Z f e c b a

n m l k i h

The aleph (a) beit (b) in the horizontal series spells the Hebrew word Father (ab). The aleph (a) chet (h) in the perpendicular series spells Brother (ach). As it is reported in Scripture, “For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,” Heb. 2:10-11.

The chet is the picture of a fence, and is the first letter in the Hebrew word for grace (chen/nh). The nun (n) is the picture of a sperm, seed, life. It also serves for the number 50 which has to do with jubilee, freedom, liberty, etc. Grace, therefore, has to do with putting a protective fence between life and death, existence and destruction. It also has to do with providing a “new beginning” for “life.” It is through Yahweh’s wondrous grace  (chen) in Yahshua that we become His sons and daughters. We will be “born again” to a life that is eternal in true freedom and liberty!


The most simple Hebrew word for life is chai (yx). In his book entitled In His Own Words, L. Grant Luton makes a marvelous presentation:

“The words life, grace, and rest are closely related in scripture. By Elohim’s grace, we receive the gift of eternal life, and are invited to enter His rest. The relationship of these three words is illustrated by beginning with the word yx (chai, “life”) and lengthening  the y (yod) so that it becomes a ! (final nun) thus forming !x (chen, “grace”). Yod (y) is symbolic of Yahweh, and grace is demonstrated when Yahweh reaches down (!) into the depths of a person’s spirit (heart) and brings him life and salvation.

But this grace can only be apprehended through faith, which requires that we rest in Yahweh’s grace and allow Him to save us entirely apart from our own efforts. (Eph. 2:8-9) The fourth chapter of Hebrews repeatedly stresses that the evidence of saving faith is “resting” from one’s own works, and “resting” in the finished work of Yahweh. This principle is also illustrated by the Hebrew word for “grace.” If we reverse the letter order of !x (chen, “grace”), we get xn (noach, “rest”).

To clarify, the word for “life” is yx (chai). Lengthening the y so that it becomes a ! renders the word !x (chen, “grace”). Reversing !x, renders xn (noach), which means “rest”. Naoch is the same as the name of Noah, who “….found grace in the eyes of Yahweh” ….and “lived” as a result. We must follow the same pattern.

A fascinating example of chet’s (x) association with life is found in the story of the birth of Isaac. Isaac’s name qxcy, comes from the root qxc (tz’chak), which means “to laugh.” Looking carefully at this word we can see that it begins with c (tsaddai = 90), which was the age of Sarah at the time of Isaac’s birth. Notice also that this word ends with q (qof = 100), which was Abraham’s age at Isaac’s birth. Between these two letters representing Isaac’s parents, is the letter chet (x), which traditionally symbolizes “life.” The lesson here is clear: Though Abraham was 100 (q) and Sarah was 90 (c), Yahweh kept His promise that “between” the two of them would come forth a new life (x) a son whose name means “laughter (qxc).” pp. 89-90.

                                   Yx    = Life

Lengthen the yod    !x    = Grace

Reverse the letters xn   = Rest

As I said, this brother has made a marvelous presentation here, but he didn’t clarify that both of their bodies were dead to the purpose of reproduction (Ro. 4:19). The yod (y) that is the first letter of Isaac’s name (qxcy) has to do with Yahweh, as that is the first letter of His name, who is the true life (x) giver.


As we have been focusing on the letter chet (x), and its association with grace, life, rest, and the number eight, we must not leave out another most important thing. The simplest Hebrew word for “love” is ahav (bha). Ahav is formed by taking the first two letters of the Hebrew alphabet the aleph (a) and beit (b), which also make up the Hebrew word Father (ba). If we separate these two letters and add the hei (h), then we have formed the word love (bha). ([a = 1 + h = 5 + b = 2] = 8)

The hei also represents the number five which is the number for grace. Thus, what is on the Father’s heart, his innermost being is the love that He has for His people, His children, that is, the grace that we receive through Yahshua the Messiah. So the number eight not only represents life, grace, rest, but love.

The chet is represented in the Torah scrolls in three different ways. It is represented as the chet (x), or secondarily as a combination of a zayin (z) and a waw (w) with a bridge at the top (zw), or thirdly, as a combination of two zayins (zz) also with a bridge connecting them.

As I have pointed out many times and will also do here and in future articles, we are born into this physical world as descendants of Adam who was made on the sixth day, also being made primarily of carbon, which has the atomic number of six (6). The waw (w) represents the number 6 in Hebrew.

The natural man gleans his understanding through the five senses, hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch. But we need a sixth component in order to put it all together and that is the spirit in man, or breath (as both spirit and breath come from the Hebrew word ruach). But with these six components we can only understand the things of a man. We need a seventh component if we are going to be able to understand spiritual matters, spiritual things, and that seventh component is the Holy Spirit (ruach ha-qodesh). The waw (w) = 6, while the zayin (z) = 7.

Where the chet is represented in the Torah scrolls with a zayin and waw (zw), the combination = 13. Thirteen is what the Hebrew word echad (dxa “one”) adds up to (a = 1; x = 8; d = 4/ 1 + 8 + 4 = 13). Also, the feminine form of the Hebrew word for love ahavah (hbha) adds up to 13 (h = 5; b = 2; h = 5; a = 1/5 + 2 + 5 + 1 = 13).

This combination of the zayin and waw to represent the chet portrays the presently physical man (w = 6) who has received the Spirit of Yahweh and now has the seventh component (z = 7). He now has a new life, a promise of a new inheritance in the kingdom of heaven while he is still physical.

The chet represented by the two zayins (zz), would typify the one who received the seventh component in this life, and has entered into the life to come (resurrected) also being complete. Zayin (z = 7) + zayin (z = 7) equals 14, double completion! Furthermore, 14 can be reduced to 5 (14 = 1 + 4 = 5) which is the number for grace. Grace, once again, is Yahweh’s love revealed and placed on those who are His.


There are 7 annual holy days. The seventh annual holy day occurs on the 22nd day of the 7th month! (Lev. 23:36) It is called the Last Great Day. This day is a combination because it is the 7th annual holy day, but the Feast of Tabernacles, a feast of 7 days is observed prior to it (Lev. 23:34-36), so it is also, in essence, an 8th day.

This Last Great Day is the day spoken of by the Apostle John, “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.

This day typifies the Great White Throne Judgment as well as the new heavens and earth, “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before Yahweh; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works,” Rev. 20:11-12.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from Elohim out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of Yahweh is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and Yahweh himself shall be with them, and be their Elohim. And Yahweh shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. 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. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his Elohim, and he shall be my son,” Rev. 21:1-7.

The Last Great Day occurs on the 22nd day of the 7th month. There are 22 original letters in the Hebrew alphabet. It is the seventh annual holy day representing spiritual perfection and completion. It is an 8th day of the Feast of Tabernacles which, when fulfilled, will totally reveal the love, and unity of Yahweh, as well as the new beginning of heaven and earth.

Chet (x) = 8, the number for new beginnings, the number for love. It represents the time when the plan of Yahweh for this 7,000 year period will be finished (zayin [z]) and a new age of the ages without end will begin. There will be destruction at the end of the 7,000 years, but Yahweh will provide a fence (h) of safety around those who belong to Him.

HalleluYah!!!!!  JH
