The 12th Imam

This editorial will lead us into an in-depth study on the factor of the 12th Imam of Islam, which we will hopefully be able to publish in the not too distant future. Who is the 12th Imam? This is the leading question among the Shiite and the Sunni Muslims. It’s all based on what one man said he heard Mohammed say, “I heard Muhammad saying, ‘Islam will continue to be strong to twelve Muslim rulers.’ He then said a sentence which I did not hear. My father said, ‘All of them (those rulers) will be from Quraysh’.” (Jabir bin Samura, Prophet Muhammad)

  The Shiites of Iran believe that the 12th Imam was born around 868 CE and went into hiding in 874 CE at around the age of 5. His name was Mohammed ibn Hasan who was the 12th Imam in Mohammed’s lineage. Many even believe that he will return with the Christian Jesus (they call him Isa). This is reported in an article entitled “12th Imam,” Key Facet Of Islamic Prophecy, Fuels Middle East Turmoil by Olivia Tulley. This Imam would also be their Mahdi (Messiah).

  She quotes William Wagner, a  senior professor at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary and author of the book, “How Islam Plans to Change the World” who writes, “Although Shiites and Sunnis often battle against each other, as is currently the case in Iraq, common efforts among both groups of Muslims to destroy Israel, is a critical part of Islam taking control in the world and thus ushering in the Mahdi. They feel like one of the major blocking points is Israel, and that is one reason why they feel like they must destroy Israel.”

  This, whether you want to believe it or not, is in line with the Scriptures. I have been studying the Scriptures as in-depth as I possibly can for over 40 years now. I am not proclaiming that I am the sole Scriptural authority , or even a Scriptural authority, nor that I know it all. I have found that no man can understand the Scriptures unless Yahweh opens his mind to them. What I know and understand is not because I have such a great mind, and am so smart, but because I don’t have such a great mind, and am not all that smart. That way Yahweh gets the honor and glory. HalleluYah!

  Now, we can understand why neither the Palestinians or any other Islamic group, even though they may make pacts and agreements with the little nation named Israel, will never produce maps of their area with Israel displayed on them. Their understanding is that Israel is a great hindrance to the appearing of the Messiah, and the establishment of Islam and Sharia throughout the whole world.

  Supposedly, the 12th Imam spoke through 4 agents until the last one died in 941 CE. Then he went into “major occultation.” (In other words, he’s never been heard from again.) This Imam won’t return until Israel and America (the little Satan, and the great Satan) are totally destroyed, and the world is in a major chaotic state of pain, grief, and suffering.

  Yahshua, Himself, said, “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened,” Mt. 24:21-22.

  For years, I have been publishing, writing, speaking, warning through whom, and how these things will come upon the earth. But it has all fallen on deaf ears. The Scriptures reveal the truth of the situation, and we are now very close to the time of Jacob’s trouble (Jer. 30:7) wherein there will be no Israelite left alive, “Then said I, Yahweh, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,” Isa. 6:11.

  Yes, the promise is that Israel, Jacob will be delivered out of it, but that is also a huge part of the story that many don’t understand. Listen….the serpent has a seed (Gen. 3). This is revealed in the book of Genesis, at the very beginning of the Scriptures. There will always be anger, animosity, hatred, and violence between the seed of the serpent, and the seed of the woman. It is even being revealed in today’s world. It has to do with Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (write, call, or email for our booklet entitled The Spirits of the Frogs Identified).

  Yahweh willing, I will identify all of these things in the near future, but it would also behoove you all to REPENT and get your nose into His word as well as walking in the faith of Yahshua the Messiah. He is our only hope and deliverance.

  It is my prayer that Yahweh will reveal these things to you before the total destruction comes, but since President Obama has made the nuclear deal with Iran, the end is getting quite close.



I recently received the following email, "Needed to check out a question with you; at times in my prayers, I will plead the Blood of Yahshua over certain matters or will ask Yahweh (in the name of Yahshua) to bring me and my son under the blood of Yahshua. This was such a comfort and then I heard that it is not scriptural. The Isaraelites came under the blood at Passover when they put the blood of the Lambs over the doorposts, to be protected from the Angel of Death. Will you share with me your thoughts on this subject?"

Thank you for this question and statement! I have needed to look into the "blood" not only of the Passover, but the other offerings for some time. Since it is near Passover season, this will be a good topic for a message. As usual, I want to do a thorough in-depth study so that all of the bases can be covered (pun intended).

By Jerry Healan


  Yahweh told Israel, "And whatsoever man there be of the house of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, that eateth any manner of blood; I will even set my face against that soul that eateth blood, and will cut him off from among his people. For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul. Therefore I said unto the children of Israel, No soul of you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger that sojourneth among you eat blood. And whatsoever man there be of the children of Israel, or of the strangers that sojourn among you, which hunteth and catcheth any beast or fowl that may be eaten; he shall even pour out the blood thereof, and cover it with dust.  For it is the life of all flesh; the blood of it is for the life thereof: therefore I said unto the children of Israel, Ye shall eat the blood of no manner of flesh: for the life of all flesh is the blood thereof: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off," Lev. 17:10-14.

  Our blood is our life. It carries life giving oxygen delivering it throughout the body to its cells. But it also carries nutrients, food and water along with the oxygen. The cells are like little factories. They convert the nutrients into energy. They, in other words, burn the nutrients. The oxygen is required for this burning process to take place. The blood cells are marvelous because they not only carry the necessary oxygen and food for our bodies so we can live, work, play, etc. but they also carry the wastes to be expelled at the various localities set aside for that purpose. One author queried, "Would we utilize a garbage truck to bring our food and water to us? But the blood cells deliver food, water, oxygen, and then also take away the waste that the body produces. As a side note....isn't it interesting that man has never been able to develop such a system!

  The Hebrew word for blood is dam (~d/md). I have exhibited it in both modern Hebrew and Paleo Hebrew. The two letters that compose the Hebrew word for blood are dalet (d/d) and mem (m/m). Note that the letter mem is utilized in its final form (~) in modern Hebrew because it is the last letter of the word.

    The dalet is a picture of a door, while the mem is a picture of water. Yahshua alluded to water being a type of the spirit in John 7:37-39, "In the last day, that great day of the feast, Yahshua stood and cried, saying, If any man thirst, let him come unto me, and drink. He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive: for the Holy Spirit was not yet given; because that Yahshua was not yet glorified.)

  The blood is our door to spirit, to breath, to air. Spirit, breath, and air all come from the same Hebrew word which is ruach.


    Let's explore just a little more before we proceed. When Yahweh says that the "life of all flesh is in the blood," the fact of the matter is that the word for "life" is translated from the Hebrew word nephesh (vpn/cpn). This word is usually translated as “soul.”

  The account of Adam's creation is written, "And Yahweh Elohim formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul," Gen. 2:7.

  We receive a more full understanding of how this is presented if we will add the Interlinear Hebrew words to the mix, "And Yahweh Elohim formed <yatsar> man <'adam> of the dust <`aphar> of <min> the ground, <'adamah> and breathed <naphach> into his nostrils <'aph> the breath <neshamah> of life; <chay> and man <'adam> became a living <chay> soul. <nephesh>."

  Look at the similarities! Adam (adam) is formed of the dust (aphar) of the ground (adamah). Dust (aphar), breathed (naphach), and nostrils (aph) have similar characteristics. Then there is breath (neshamah), compared with soul (nephesh). Then look again at dust (aphar), breathed (naphach), nostrils (aph), and soul (nephesh).

  It is written that the life of all flesh is in the blood, but the Hebrew word for life is actually nephesh....SOUL! I wanted to show the above in order to reveal how marvelously intricate we are, life is, the creation is! I also want to get the point across that when one eats blood, he is eating the literal soul of that entity whether it is an animal or man.

  Yahweh is the Living One, the actual giver of life and soul. It is He who understands completely how we should live and what we should do. He warns us away from danger, but the problem is that we simply ignore Him and continue to rush headlong to destruction. 


  Thinking about this, there are two ways for blood to be upon us. One way is not the way that we want anyone's blood to be upon us, and the other way is the way that we would. Let's take a look at the event concerning Yahshua's condemnation to death, "Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would. And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas. Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Yahshua which is called the Messiah? For he knew that for envy they had delivered him. When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him. But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Yahshua. The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas. Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Yahshua which is called the Messiah? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified. And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified. When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children. Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Yahshua, he delivered him to be crucified," Mt. 27:15-27.

  Did you notice anything special in these verses? Pilate, the Roman governor called Yahshua "the Messiah" (the Anointed) twice! Twice, he also alluded to His innocence!

  Yahweh instructed the people in the wilderness, "When Yahweh thy Elohim hath cut off the nations, whose land Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee, and thou succeedest them, and dwellest in their cities, and in their houses; Thou shalt separate three cities for thee in the midst of thy land, which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee to possess it. Thou shalt prepare thee a way, and divide the coasts of thy land, which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee to inherit, into three parts, that every slayer may flee thither. And this is the case of the slayer, which shall flee thither, that he may live: Whoso killeth his neighbour ignorantly, whom he hated not in time past; As when a man goeth into the wood with his neighbour to hew wood, and his hand fetcheth a stroke with the axe to cut down the tree, and the head slippeth from the helve, and lighteth upon his neighbour, that he die; he shall flee unto one of those cities, and live: Lest the avenger of the blood pursue the slayer, while his heart is hot, and overtake him, because the way is long, and slay him; whereas he was not worthy of death, inasmuch as he hated him not in time past. Wherefore I command thee, saying, Thou shalt separate three cities for thee. And if Yahweh thy Elohim enlarge thy coast, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers, and give thee all the land which he promised to give unto thy fathers; If thou shalt keep all these commandments to do them, which I command thee this day, to love Yahweh thy Elohim, and to walk ever in his ways; then shalt thou add three cities more for thee, beside these three: That innocent blood be not shed in thy land, which Yahweh thy Elohim giveth thee for an inheritance, and so blood be upon thee. But if any man hate his neighbour, and lie in wait for him, and rise up against him, and smite him mortally that he die, and fleeth into one of these cities: Then the elders of his city shall send and fetch him thence, and deliver him into the hand of the avenger of blood, that he may die. Thine eye shall not pity him, but thou shalt put away the guilt of innocent blood from Israel, that it may go well with thee," Dt. 19:1-13.

  Judas Iscariot betrayed Yahshua, but then realized what he had done, "Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day," Mt. 27:3-8.

  Judas was called the "son of perdition" when Yahshua prayed to the Father concerning His disciples, "While I was with them in the world, I kept them in thy name: those that thou gavest me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled," Jn. 17:12.

  Perdition means ruin, loss, destruction, etc.

  King Manasseh of Judah became a very wicked king doing many wicked works including the shedding of innocent blood, "Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem. And his mother's name was Hephzibah. And he did that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh, after the abominations of the heathen, whom Yahweh cast out before the children of Israel. For he built up again the high places which Hezekiah his father had destroyed; and he reared up altars for Baal, and made a grove, as did Ahab king of Israel; and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them. And he built altars in the house of Yahweh, of which Yahweh said, In Jerusalem will I put my name. And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of Yahweh. And he made his son pass through the fire, and observed times, and used enchantments, and dealt with familiar spirits and wizards: he wrought much wickedness in the sight of Yahweh, to provoke him to anger. And he set a graven image of the grove that he had made in the house, of which Yahweh said to David, and to Solomon his son, In this house, and in Jerusalem, which I have chosen out of all tribes of Israel, will I put my name for ever: Neither will I make the feet of Israel move any more out of the land which I gave their fathers; only if they will observe to do according to all that I have commanded them, and according to all the law that my servant Moses commanded them. But they hearkened not: and Manasseh seduced them to do more evil than did the nations whom Yahweh destroyed before the children of Israel. And Yahweh spake by his servants the prophets, saying, Because Manasseh king of Judah hath done these abominations, and hath done wickedly above all that the Amorites did, which were before him, and hath made Judah also to sin with his idols: Therefore thus saith Yahweh Elohim of Israel, Behold, I am bringing such evil upon Jerusalem and Judah, that whosoever heareth of it, both his ears shall tingle. And I will stretch over Jerusalem the line of Samaria, and the plummet of the house of Ahab: and I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down. And I will forsake the remnant of mine inheritance, and deliver them into the hand of their enemies; and they shall become a prey and a spoil to all their enemies; Because they have done that which was evil in my sight, and have provoked me to anger, since the day their fathers came forth out of Egypt, even unto this day. Moreover Manasseh shed innocent blood very much, till he had filled Jerusalem from one end to another; beside his sin wherewith he made Judah to sin, in doing that which was evil in the sight of Yahweh," 2 Ki. 21:1-16.

  Yahweh would not pardon Manasseh's sins, especially the sin of shedding innocent blood, "In his days Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came up, and Jehoiakim became his servant three years: then he turned and rebelled against him. And Yahweh sent against him bands of the Chaldees, and bands of the Syrians, and bands of the Moabites, and bands of the children of Ammon, and sent them against Judah to destroy it, according to the word of Yahweh, which he spake by his servants the prophets. Surely at the commandment of Yahweh came this upon Judah, to remove them out of his sight, for the sins of Manasseh, according to all that he did; And also for the innocent blood that he shed: for he filled Jerusalem with innocent blood; which Yahweh would not pardon," 2 Ki. 24:1-4.

  Yahshua condemned the people of His day by saying, "Fill ye up then the measure of your fathers. Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell? Wherefore, behold, I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes: and some of them ye shall kill and crucify; and some of them shall ye scourge in your synagogues, and persecute them from city to city: That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacharias son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar. Verily I say unto you, All these things shall come upon this generation," Mt. 23:32-36.

  Yahshua's blood was the most innocent blood that has ever been shed. The people decreed that His blood be upon them and their children. Jerusalem was ultimately destroyed along with its people with the survivors going into the most abject poverty and slavery imaginable. But this blood that was shed was shed in condemnation of the innocent by those who had become quite vile in their walk, even though they appeared to be righteous. Read Matthew 23 for Yahshua's condemnation on them.

  But think of our own nation today, and much of the world today. Our land is full of murders which are not being properly avenged. But the most innocent of blood is being shed through abortion. Little children are being aborted while they are yet in the womb. While in many cases the parents have sinned, the children have not yet had any opportunity to sin. They aren't even given opportunity to see the marvelous light of day that Yahweh has created. Innocent blood is upon our land. The price will have to be paid.


  Israel was freed from the bondage of slavery to Egypt through ten plagues that Yahweh sent upon them in order to have His people released. The tenth plague was the plague of Passover. The Israelites were commanded to kill a lamb or kid of the goats on the afternoon of the 14th of Abib, the first month of the Holy Calendar, and to put the blood on the lintels and doorposts of their homes, "And Yahweh spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Speak ye unto all the congregation of Israel, saying, In the tenth day of this month they shall take to them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house: And if the household be too little for the lamb, let him and his neighbour next unto his house take it according to the number of the souls; every man according to his eating shall make your count for the lamb. Your lamb shall be without blemish, a male of the first year: ye shall take it out from the sheep, or from the goats: And ye shall keep it up until the fourteenth day of the same month: and the whole assembly of the congregation of Israel shall kill it in the evening. And they shall take of the blood, and strike it on the two side posts and on the upper door post of the houses, wherein they shall eat it. And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it. Eat not of it raw, nor sodden at all with water, but roast with fire; his head with his legs, and with the purtenance thereof. And ye shall let nothing of it remain until the morning; and that which remaineth of it until the morning ye shall burn with fire. And thus shall ye eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and ye shall eat it in haste: it is Yahweh's Passover," Ex. 12:1-11.

  The lamb or goat had to be young, in its first year and without blemish signifying innocence. The blood had to be on the entrance to their homes in order for their firstborn sons to escape the execution of the death angel.

  Israel was delivered into the wilderness where they made a covenant with Yahweh whereupon Moses sprinkled the people and the book of the covenant with blood, "And Moses came and told the people all the words of Yahweh, and all the judgments: and all the people answered with one voice, and said, All the words which Yahweh hath said will we do. And Moses wrote all the words of Yahweh, and rose up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel. And he sent young men of the children of Israel, which offered burnt offerings, and sacrificed peace offerings of oxen unto Yahweh. And Moses took half of the blood, and put it in basons; and half of the blood he sprinkled on the altar. And he took the book of the covenant, and read in the audience of the people: and they said, All that Yahweh hath said will we do, and be obedient. And Moses took the blood, and sprinkled it on the people, and said, Behold the blood of the covenant, which Yahweh hath made with you concerning all these words," Ex. 24:3-8.

  Didn't the people come under the blood of the covenant? Doesn't it say that Moses sprinkled the blood on the people? Wasn't that covenant of blood either their covering of salvation, and blessing, or, if they disobeyed, an implement of death and destruction? If they erred, they were able to repent and cover themselves with the blood of the covenant. Didn't Yahweh plead with them to repent, to turn from their sins so that things would be well with them?

  "Yet Yahweh testified against Israel, and against Judah, by all the prophets, and by all the seers, saying, Turn ye from your evil ways, and keep my commandments and my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers, and which I sent to you by my servants the prophets," 2 Ki. 17:13.

  "Say unto them, As I live, saith the Sovereign Yahweh, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of Israel?" Ez. 33:11.

  "Therefore also now, saith Yahweh, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning: And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto Yahweh your Elohim: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil. Who knoweth if he will return and repent, and leave a blessing behind him; even a meat offering and a drink offering unto Yahweh your Elohim?" Joel. 2:12-14.

  "Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith Yahweh of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith Yahweh of hosts. Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith Yahweh," Zech. 1:3-4.

  Through the prophets, Yahweh continually encouraged the people of Israel and Judah to repent and turn back to the covenant that He had made with their fathers, but they refused and suffered the curse, the destruction that was warned from the beginning.


  Scripture reveals that the covenant of Moses has decayed and that a new and better covenant is now promised through the blood of Yahshua the Messiah," 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. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of the Messiah, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to Yahweh, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living Elohim? 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. For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator. For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth. Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood. For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people, Saying, This is the blood of the testament which Yahweh hath enjoined unto you. Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry. And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission," Heb. 9:11-22.

  Too many people, including ministers, elders, etc. are not understanding that there is the covenant of Moses which was initiated with the blood of bulls, goats, sheep, etc., and then there is the covenant of Yahshua, which is initiated through His own blood. We must not neglect to point this out for so many are seeking to restore people to the covenant of Moses rather than the covenant of Yahshua.

  The book of Hebrews continues, "For the law (Torah) having a shadow of good things to come, and not the very image of the things, can never with those sacrifices which they offered year by year continually make the comers thereunto perfect. For then would they not have ceased to be offered? Because that the worshippers once purged should have had no more conscience of sins. But in those sacrifices there is a remembrance again made of sins every year. For it is not possible that the blood of bulls and of goats should take away sins. Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O Elohim. Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O Elohim. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Yahshua the Messiah once for all. And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of Yahweh; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool. For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified. Whereof the Holy Spirit also is a witness to us: for after that he had said before, This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith Yahweh, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more. Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Yahshua, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; And having an high priest over the house of Elohim; Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)," Heb. 10:1-23.

Moses sprinkled the people with the blood of animals, bulls, sheep, goats, etc. But the better covenant sprinkles us with the blood of the Messiah. Without the sprinkling of blood there is no remission!

Hebrews continues, " For ye are not come unto the mount that might be touched, and that burned with fire, nor unto blackness, and darkness, and tempest, And the sound of a trumpet, and the voice of words; which voice they that heard intreated that the word should not be spoken to them any more: (For they could not endure that which was commanded, And if so much as a beast touch the mountain, it shall be stoned, or thrust through with a dart: And so terrible was the sight, that Moses said, I exceedingly fear and quake:) But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living Elohim, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, and to Yahweh the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, And to Yahshua the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel," Heb. 12:18-24.

The Apostle Peter confirms, "Peter, an apostle of Yahshua the Messiah, to the strangers scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia, and Bithynia, Elect according to the foreknowledge of Yahweh the Father, through sanctification of the Spirit, unto obedience and sprinkling of the blood of Yahshua the Messiah: Grace unto you, and peace, be multiplied," 1 Pet. 1:1-2.

Yahshua's Blood is for redemption:

"Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of the Messiah, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you," 1 Pet. 1:18-20.

"And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to Yahweh by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; And hast made us unto our Elohim kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth," Rev. 5:8-10.

Redemption and forgiveness:

"In whom we have redemption (ransom in full) through his blood, the forgiveness (pardon) of sins, according to the riches of his grace," Eph. 1:7.

"In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins," Col. 1:14.


"Whom Yahweh hath set forth to be a propitiation (atonement) through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of Yahweh," Ro. 3:25.

"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. 5:11. Atonement has to do with covering.


 "Much more then, being now justified (just/innocent) by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him," Ro. 5:9.


"But now in the Messiah Yahshua ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of the Messiah," Eph. 2:13.


"And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven," Col. 1:20.


"This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that Yahweh is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Yahshua the Messiah his Son cleanseth us from all sin," 1 Jn. 1:5-7.

"John to the seven assemblies which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; And from Yahshua the Messiah, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood, And hath made us kings and priests unto Yahweh and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen," Rev. 1:4-6.

"After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our Elohim which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped Yahweh, Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our Elohim for ever and ever. Amen. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. Therefore are they before the throne of Yahweh, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them. They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat. For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and Yahweh shall wipe away all tears from their eyes," Rev. 7:9-17.


"And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our Yahweh, and the power of his Messiah: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our Elohim day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death," Rev. 12:9-11.


With this information alone, we have found that the people under Moses' covenant were sprinkled with the blood of animals, but under Yahshua's covenant we are to be sprinkled by His blood. We are to come under the blood of His covenant washing our garments and consciences in His blood.

Now the question is: "Who told you that it wasn't Scriptural concerning being covered by Yahshua's blood? I can almost guarantee you that the person who told you that has not #1 done a thorough research of the Scriptures, and #2 is seeking to bring you back under the covenant of Moses.

I am going to say something here that is going to stir up a lot of contention, but if it does, those who resist are seeking to restore the covenant of Moses rather than institute the greater new covenant of Yahshua. Restoring the covenant of Moses is similar to the people of Moses' day attempting to go back into Egypt. We ARE NOT under the Levitical Priesthood. Our High Priest is Yahshua the Messiah Who is Melchizedek! Moses' covenant was temporary. It ended in failure. Yahshua's covenant is eternal. It will never fail!


We started this article by quoting the book of Leviticus which forbids the eating or drinking of blood. Yet Yahshua said that we must eat His flesh and drink His blood.

SHEMA! Listen! Yahshua came speaking words of the Spirit that the carnal mind simply can't understand! Yahshua told the people of His day that they must eat His flesh and drink His blood if they were to have eternal life. This is recorded in John chapter six. Then He told them, " It is the spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are spirit, and they are life. But there are some of you that believe not. For Yahshua knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him. And he said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him," Jn. 6:63-66.

The Apostle Paul writes, " Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of Yahweh in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which Yahweh ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Sovereign of glory. But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which Yahweh hath prepared for them that love him. But Yahweh hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of Yahweh. For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of Yahweh knoweth no man, but the Spirit of Yahweh. Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of Yahweh; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of Yahweh. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Spirit teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of Yahweh: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned," 1 Cor. 2:6-14.

The natural carnal mind can't receive the things of Yahshua because they are spiritually understood! Again, Paul makes this clear, " Now I Paul myself beseech you by the meekness and gentleness of the Messiah, who in presence am base among you, but being absent am bold toward you: But I beseech you, that I may not be bold when I am present with that confidence, wherewith I think to be bold against some, which think of us as if we walked according to the flesh. For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh: (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through Yahweh to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of Yahweh, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Messiah; And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled," 2 Cor. 10:1-6.

The things of the covenant of Moses were given as types of the Messiah, as Yahshua declared, " Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of Yahweh in you. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from Yahweh only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?" Jn. 5:39-47.

Moses wrote of the Passover lamb (Ex. 12:1-28). Yahshua is our Passover sacrificed for us (1 Cor. 5:7). He is the Lamb of Elohim (Jn. 1:29, 36; Acts 8:32; 1 Pet. 1:19; Rev. 5:6). Can't we eat lamb?

Moses wrote of the manna that was given as food for Israel in the wilderness (Ex. 16). Yahshua is the true bread from heaven (Jn. 6:27-58). Can't we eat bread? (Don't forget that the unleavened bread was/is a type of Yahshua's sinless flesh.)

The fruit of the vine is called the "blood of grapes" (Gen. 49:11; Dt. 32:14). Yahshua said that the fruit of the vine typified His blood (Mt. 26:27-29; Mk. 14:23-25; Lk. 22:17-20). Can't we drink the blood of grapes, which is either juice or wine?

Furthermore, we have our Messiah, Master, Sovereign, Teacher Yahshua, Who is the truth, commanding us to do these things. Do we believe Him or not? If we are His disciples, then we are learning from Him and of Him. If we are not His disciples, then we will dispute, and disbelieve.


Before I close this treatise, I want to tell you about archeologist Ron Wyatt. Ron Wyatt (deceased) was a man who journeyed into the modern day land of Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, etc. seeking the proofs of the Scriptures. He and those with him made some amazing discoveries, such as, the ark that Noah built, the area where Israel crossed over the sea, the mount where Yahweh appeared to Israel, ancient Sodom and Gomorrah, etc. But one other thing that he claims to have discovered is the ark of the covenant which was under the area where Yahshua was crucified. He said that he tried to take pictures of it, but they would never develop properly. One of his claims, however, is that the ark had dried blood on it, evidently from when Yahshua’s blood poured out from the spear thrust in His side.

Ron took a sample of the blood to have it analyzed. In a meeting, he was asked about this and his response was rather enlightening.

A woman asked: My question is that you say that you had the blood of our Lord examined by the Israelis.

Ron: That’s correct.

Woman: What was the determination of that?

Ron: Okay. Now, we won’t be able to take second questions. If you have second questions, I’m sorry, please step out. I love you, but we’re running out of time.

Uh, real quickly, okay. Uh…….(sigh)….Dried blood is dead blood. Everybody knows that, alright? They can test the blood of the Pharaoh’s, the mummies of the Pharaoh’s, alright? There’s certain things they can do. They cannot get a chromosome count by any method that I’m familiar with…alright? Things keep changing, I don’t profess to know everything. However, there’s no way to get a chromosome count, that I know of, out of dead blood. You can get a DNA and some other things, but not a chromosome count…alright? That’s done by living white blood cells.

Now then, first of all in this analysis, I took the blood into a laboratory in Israel. I asked one of the people I work with in Antiquities, where is a good laboratory that does reliable work? And they said such and such, such and such, and I took it.

I said please examine this blood and tell me what you can tell me about it…Alright? They said, well look, we’re going to reconstitute it. We’re going to put it in normal saline and keep it at body temperature for 72 hours with gentle swirling….alright? That’s their business, that’s great. I said, Listen I want to be there when you check it out. They said, Fine. So I was back. They checked it out. They said, Now, it’s human blood, we can tell that. They did whatever tests they need to do. And then, I said, Take some of the white blood cells, and put them in a growth medium, and keep them at body temperature for 48 hours, and they said, That will do no good because it’s dead blood. I said would you please do that for me? They said, Okay, we’ll do it! So anyway, I want to be there when you take it out, and examine it. So, I was back there. They took it out and examined it under a microscope, and the one technician called the other one over there, and they called the boss over there, and they were talking Hebrew a mile a minute there for a little bit. And they looked at me and said, Mr. Wyatt, this blood has only 24 chromosomes in it, and everybody else has 46, you see, 23 from your mother, and 23 from your father…22 autosomes from your mother and 22 autosomes from your father. You get an X from your mother, you may get an X or a Y from your father…alright? This blood had 23 chromosomes from the mother’s side….one Y chromosome only. You see, this child could not have developed if he hadn’t had the autosomes from the mother. So all of his physical characteristics we determined by His mother’s side of the family…her autosomes. His maleness was determined by the one Y chromosome determined not by a human male. Then they said, This blood is alive! And then they said, Whose blood is this (voice breaking up)!?

After a long pause trying to recollect his composure, He said…voice still quavering….It’s the blood of your Messiah! (Applause) He finishes with, And I assure you that those men’s lives have changed (a little breaking up of the voice again)! (end of excerpt)

This was taken from a video. But I have a book entitled “Ark of the Covenant” written by another archeologist named Jonathan Gray who confirms what Ron Wyatt has said here. I have seen the video, and the visible emotion exhibited by Ron Wyatt reveals that he is not lying.


Haven't we learned some amazing things about blood? Blood is the life of all flesh. It is the door to the spirit, breath. It is the vehicle through which our bodies are able to live because it carries the life giving oxygen, food, and water to our bodies.

Yahshua is the door, the 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. 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," Jn. 10:1-13.

Therefore, when we eat of His flesh and drink of His blood, we are eating and drinking His life, His soul into us. Our own blood will fail us, but Yahshua's flesh and blood will give us everlasting life.

We choose to believe and follow His directions. We choose to dispute with the unbelievers. We choose to come under the blood of His covenant. His is the better way because His way is of Yahweh's word and His Spirit. HalleluYah!!!!!!   JH


The lamed is the twelfth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. It looks like this l/l/l/ in the Pictorial, Paleo, and Modern Hebrew respectively. In numbers, it equals to thirty (30). Twelve is the number for governmental perfection as in the twelve tribes of Israel, or the twelve apostles, or the twelve signs of the Mazzaroth/Zodiac, as well as the twelve months of the year. Let’s look into this significant Hebrew letter to see what can be revealed.

By Jerry Healan

Michael Monk writes, “The l is a majestic letter, towering above the other letters from its position in the center of the Aleph-Beis. Thus it symbolizes the King of Kings, the Supreme Ruler. On one side lamed is flanked by the k (kaph) which alludes to כָבוֹדh; aseki, (Elohim’s) throne of glory, while on its other side stands m, the attribute of tWkl.m;, (Elohim”s) kingship. Together, these three letters spell $l,m,, King.” The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet p.138.

  Wow! We can already see that this letter certainly represents Yahshua in His capacity as King of Kings (Rev. 19:16)!

  Grant Luton writes, “The letter lamed (l) is unique in two ways; it stands at the center of the alphabet; and it is the tallest of the letters. The shape of the lamed (l) has been compared to a watchtower or lighthouse established as a sentinel at the heart of the alphabet. In the Torah scrolls, the base of the l is formed by a kaf (k, the letter which symbolized good deeds), atop which stands a vav (w) in the shape of a flame, as if the good works inspired by the Holy Spirit were giving light and warmth to all those around.” In His Own Words, p. 125.

  Didn’t Yahshua say, “I am the light of the world?” Jn. 8:12. He also said, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven,” Mt. 5:14-16.

  Our light is Yahshua. He is the light that we must reflect and follow.

  The Hebrew word for “heart” is lev/leb (bl). In accordance with his book The Alef-Beit, Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh writes, “...the heart (bl) is the secret of two lameds face to face

The beit of bl equals two; thus bl can be read: ‘two lameds.’ The two kafs (k) of the lameds form the heart itself, while the two vavs (w) represent the two blood vessels leading to and from the brain.” p. 184.

  Amazingly, the very first Hebrew letter of the Torah is the beit (b), and the the very last letter of the Torah (the first five books of Scripture called the book of Moses) is the lamed (l).

  Yahshua said that Moses wrote of Him, “Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. I receive not honour from men. But I know you, that ye have not the love of Yahweh in you. I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive. How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from Yahweh only? Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me,” Jn. 5:39-46.

  Therefore, our hearts (bl) should be set on the love of the Father Who has esteemed His Beloved Son in the Torah. We should search the books of the Torah, as well as all Scripture to see how they speak of Yahshua.

  If we reverse the letters for heart (bl)we get lb, Bel! We either serve Yahshua in our research of the Torah, or we serve the Babylonian deity Bel, and ourselves as well! By the way, lb also means DON’T!

  Robert M. Haralick writes, “As a prefix, l can mean to, unto, into, toward, during, for, about, according to, at, by, of with, in, within, each, every, as, or belonging to. All of these establish l as providing in the physical realm a directed association or connection of one thing to or with another. The root dml means to learn, study, or become familiar with. In the Piel (intensive) form it means to teach.”

  The letter l is the tallest of all the letters. This suggests that learning and teaching are among the highest capabilities we have. But learning here means more than intellectual learning of secular matters. Learning here means learning that connects to the heart, bl. This is the kind of learning in which we transform our heart to do and desire more and more always in connection with Godliness. That is  the reason the shape of the letter l is composed of a w on the top, constituting the tower, and a k for the body. The w is the connection to Godliness. And with the connection to Godliness learned and taught there is always lasting purpose in what we desire, think, say, and do. This leads us to k, the energy intelligence of the crowning achievement. Hence it is no surprise that the w and the k total 26, the gematria of the Tetragrammaton        h-w-h-y. The Inner Meanings of the Hebrew Letters, p. 179-180.

  L. Grant Luton agrees with Robert for he writes, “...we must draw our attention once again to the fact that lamed (l) is constructed of a vav (w) and a kaf (k). If we add the numeric values of these two letters, we find that they equal 26 (k = 20, w = 6; 20+6=26). This important connection between Lamed—the letter which stands in the center of the alphabet—and (Yahweh’s) name emphasizes that the heart of what (Yahweh) wants us to learn through His alphabet is knowledge of himself. We must approach the Bible not as if it were merely a portrait of (Yahweh), but as a window through which we see the Almighty Himself.

  Note that lamed (l) is the only letter whose top reaches above the line from which all of the other letters are suspended. It is as if this letter is permitted to poke its head above the clouds where all is clear and bright, to see (Yahweh) in a way that is not granted to those who do not pursue Him by learning His word and obeying it. If we add the numeric values of the letters which spell lamed’s full name—dml—we find that they equal seventy four (l=30, m=40, d=4; 30+40+4=74). This is also the numeric value of the word b[b (b’av, “in the thickness”), which is found in the passage that says: “Yahweh said to Moses, “I am going to come to you in a dense (literally ‘in the thickness of’ the)cloud, so that the people will hear me speaking with you and will always put their trust in you.” Ex. 19:9.

  To know (Yahweh) intimately, we must penetrate “the thickness” which surrounds Him. This is done through study of His Word and prayer.” In His Own Words, p. 129.

It is so amazing concerning the knowledge of these men, yet they never realize that if they want a more personal relationship with the Father and Son, then they need to not only know His name, but call upon it, and declare it openly to all, because it is the name of salvation (Joel 2:32; Acts 2:21; Ro. 10:13).

  Amazingly, the Pictorial Hebrew of Yahweh’s name equals to the revelation of the modern Hebrew version of the lamed. Yahweh = hwhy which pictorially reveals yod (y) = hand; hei (h) = to reveal; waw/vav (w) = nail; hei (h) = to reveal.

  The lamed also has to do with a hand and nail for kaf (k) = open hand; waw/vav (w) = nail!

  When Yahshua showed His pierced hands to Thomas, then Thomas knew exactly who He was, “And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Yahshua, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Master and my El,” John 20:26-28. (He would have utilized the Hebrew words Adonai ve Elohi!)

  He knew that Yahshua was Yahweh! (Not the Father whom no one has seen, nor heard His voice, but the one who emptied himself of his power and honor to become a man [Phil 2:7-8]).

  Also, the kaf (k) has to do with a crown as in the crown of a king. The waw (w) as a nail or tent peg has to do with something that is nailed together, or that is established. Yahshua will establish (w) the kingdom (k) of heaven in the near future.

The Pictorial lamed (l) is the picture of a rod of authority, a shepherd’s rod. When the aleph (a), the first letter of the alphabet, is added to the lamed (l), the Hebrew word El (la) is produced. The aleph is the picture of the head of an ox which denotes strength, but it also represents the number one (1) giving the idea of that which is chief, head, first. However, the name of the aleph in Hebrew is  pla. Do you see that the first two letters form the word El!? The last letter peh (p) is the picture of a mouth.

  Don’t the Scriptures say we are to live by every word that comes out of the mouth (p) of Yahweh? (Dt. 8:3) The lamed is the central letter of this word! This should teach (l also means to teach) us that Yahshua, being the aleph (Rev. 1:8), is not only a great, strong teacher, but that the words that come out of his mouth (p) will stand forever!

  Furthermore, It was by the breath of His mouth that all things came into existence, “By the word of Yahweh were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth (p),” Psa. 33:6. “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,” Jn. 1:1-3.

  The term El (la) also describes Him as the Chief (a) Shepherd (l). Peter writes, “And when the chief Shepherd (la) shall appear, ye shall receive a crown (k) of glory that fadeth not away,” 1 Pet. 5:4.

  The lamed l equals to the number thirty. The estimation of a woman who made a singular vow (in consecration to Yahweh [Lev. 27:4]) was estimated at 30 (l) shekels of silver. Yahshua’s estimation for His bride was thirty pieces (shekels) of silver, “And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver. And Yahweh said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of Yahweh,” Zech. 11:12-13.

  Judas betrayed Yahshua for thirty pieces (shekels) of silver, but in order to fulfill prophecy it is written, “Then Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned, repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I have betrayed the innocent blood. And they said, What is that to us? see thou to that. And he cast down the pieces of silver in the temple, and departed, and went and hanged himself. And the chief priests took the silver pieces, and said, It is not lawful for to put them into the treasury, because it is the price of blood. And they took counsel, and bought with them the potter's field, to bury strangers in. Wherefore that field was called, The field of blood, unto this day. Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued, whom they of the children of Israel did value; And gave them for the potter's field, as Yahweh appointed me,” Mt. 27:3-10.

  Finally, the lamed has to do with teaching and learning. Yahshua declared that He is the Teacher, “Ye call me Master (Gk. = teacher) and Sovereign: and ye say well; for so I am,” Jn. 13:13. Yahshua is the greatest of teacher’s (Heb. = lamad/dml). A follower, or disciple of His would be a talmid (Heb = dymlt).  The Rabbi’s teachings are written in a book called the Talmud (dwmlt). The yod (y) is the first letter in Yahweh’s name. the waw (w) has to do with man. Who will be your teacher (dml/lamad), Yahweh, or men who deny Yahshua, and couldn't even understand His words?
