FROM THE EDITOR
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)
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.”
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.
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.
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.
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).
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
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
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).

WHAT IS BLOOD?
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.
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
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.
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
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.
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,
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
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.
THE BLOOD OF THE COVENANT OF MOSES
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,"
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.
"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.
BRINGS US NEAR:
"But now in the Messiah Yahshua ye who
sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood
of the Messiah," Eph. 2:13.
MAKES PEACE AND RECONCILIATION:
"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.
CLEANSES US FROM SIN:
"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!
YAHSHUA'S FLESH AND BLOOD
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
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
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
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,
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
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
The Inner Meanings of the Hebrew Letters,
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
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,
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.
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
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.
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
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,”
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?
