I sought Yeshua that my soul loves /Sng 3:1-4

In Song of Solomon, the book of love, we have a set of very compelling Alef Tav treasures embedded in the middle of the book, all within 4 verses. This is the witness of Yeshua that I go to first for the doubters because there are only four stand-alone Aleph Tavs in the whole book and they are all grouped together and where they occur in the verses is undeniably meaningful. Let me show you Yeshua in Song of Solomon!

At this point we have hopefully determined that Yeshua wasn’t just speaking idle words in Revelation when He repeated 4 times that He is the Aleph Tav. If you missed that blog, please see the blog entitled “the Mysterious Aleph Tav, here: https://wp.me/pcgXR4-18

If you’re strapped in and ready to continue, let’s go! If you have your bible handy, turn to Song of Solomon, chapter 3. Verses 1 through 4 read:

1) The Shulamite
By night on my bed I sought the one I love;
I sought him, but I did not find him. 
2)  “I will rise now,” I said,
“And go about the city;
In the streets and in the squares
I will seek the one I love.”
I sought him, but I did not find him.
3) The watchmen who go about the city found me;
I said,
“Have you seen the one I love?” 
4) Scarcely had I passed by them,
When I found the one I love.
I held him and would not let him go,
Until I had brought him to the house of my mother,
And into the chamber of her who conceived me.

On the surface there is no Yeshua in sight in those 4 verses, BUT let’s take a closer look in the original Hebrew, because Solomon hid some treasures in there for us to find! Don’t you just LOVE treasure hunts? 😀

Verse one:

…I sought את that my soul loves…

Sng 3:1a

The first big noticeable difference is that the Hebrew never says “THE SHULAMITE”. We are commanded not to add words, but anyway, this isn’t Torah so I guess the translators figured they could slip that in.

Did you spot our stand-alone Alef Tav (את) in the Hebrew? Hopefully by now your eyes are getting trained to see them right off, like a ruby amongst pearls.

For verse two of chapter 3 I’ve only dealt with the last part for space’s sake since that is where we find our treasure anyway. Here is the breakdown:

נפשי = my soul

…I will seek את that my soul loves.

Sng 3:2c

It makes me wonder, since the Hebrew word for “my soul” (נפשי) is in all four of these verses, why did the translators (of the NKJV) omit it? I don’t like that. Makes me wonder what else they omit. 😕

Now for verse 3. Let’s break down the second half of the verse!

The shin (ש) in front of “I love” (אהבה) means “that”. Making “that I love”.

Take a breather. A minute to reflect and process this. Are you seeing Yeshua? I realize this is a lot to absorb but take it slow. At some point you may need to go back over this after your Helper has had a chance to really soak this nectar into your cells. Whenever you’re ready we can move on to the last verse. Verse 4, of chapter 3. The whole verse in my bible reads:

Scarcely had I passed by them,

When I found the one I love.

I held him and would not let him go,

Until I had brought him to the house of my mother,

And into the chamber of her who conceived me.

Sng 3:4

Let’s break down the first part.

Leave it to Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, to hide a witness of His Mashiach, who would later come from his own loins, in the love letter that he wrote. He knew Yeshua would be born from his lineage from promises the Almighty had given his father, David. King David had taught his son about the secret Aleph Tav, from the clues in Torah and the prophets and Solomon had hidden them for our re-generation to find. Those of us who have the testimony of Yeshua and the witness of the Word of God. Those of us scattered tribes of Israel who are returning to the paths of old. The paths of Truth. The paths of YHVH. The same path our Messiah walked.

Incidentally (or NOT), the Hebrew word “davar” (דבר) above means “word”, which means this verse also says – “It is the glory of Eloheim to conceal a word, but the glory of kings is to search out a word.” 😉 I think we’ve determined our next blog post!

There is a short youtube on this Alef Tav nugget if you absorb knowledge easier through hearing. Follow this link: https://youtu.be/-PXoK2U0JZw

Thank you for stopping by! If you find this information enjoyable or important, feel free to share it! Israel is hungry for Yeshua!

I’m just a Hebrew gypsy exalting my Messiah Yeshua while waiting to go home. ❤

the Mysterious Aleph Tav (את)

Those two underlined Hebrew words are “Et”. As you can see, they are untranslated. The “and” under the left one is referring to the “vav” next to Et. The letter vav in front of a word sometimes means “and”, as in this case.

Before tackling this amazing subject I would like to say a prayer…

Our dear Father in heaven, please open our eyes and our minds to understand the wondrous things you have hidden in your Word. As your Son Yeshua said – Open our understanding, that we may comprehend the Scriptures. (Luk 24:45 paraphrased) Send us the Helper that you promised who teaches your people all things (Jhn 14:26 paraphrased). Thank you for hearing our prayer. B’shem Yeshua 💕

Take a good, long look at that top photo. As you see, it is Genesis 1:1. Do you notice how the underlined Alef Tav on the right is not translated? It is untranslatable. Hebrew speakers brush it off, saying that it is just a word that points to the direct object in sentences. I would ask them – Do ALL direct objects have “את” in front of them? No. They don’t.

Also, there are hyphenated Aleph Tavs (-את) and stand-alone Aleph Tavs, like the two above. See below for some hyphenated examples. I would ask Hebrew speakers – What is the grammatical difference between hyphenated and stand-alone Aleph Tavs?

(Exo 39:30-43) Blue-dotted are the hyphenated Alef Tavs while the yellow highlighted are the stand-alone Alef Tavs. Do you recognize what form the yellow את have taken? Do you see what they are pointing at? Those two words at the top highlighted in yellow say “HOLINESS TO YHVH”. Now it could be a coincidence, but I don’t believe in coincidences. 😉

Ok, now that we have built some kind of foundation and you can recognize stand-alone Alef Tavs, lets go a little deeper. At this point I should mention that there are thousands of hyphenated Alef Tavs in the older testament (Tanakh) but the occurrence of stand-alone Alef Tav are much more rare.

Let’s go to some verses spoken by Yeshua in Revelation.

“I am the Alef and the Tav, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Yeshua ~ Rev 1:8

(I have taken out the “omega” and the “alpha” from these verses because Yeshua would have been speaking Hebrew, not Greek. Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew aleph beit and tav is the last letter.)

“saying, “I am the Alef and the Tav, the First and the Last,…”

Yeshua ~ Rev 1:11a

“And He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alef and the Tav, the Beginning and the End…”

Yeshua ~ Rev 21:6a

“I am the Alef and the Tav, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

Yeshua ~ Rev 22:13

Yeshua proclaimed that He is the Alef Tav twice in the beginning and twice at the end of Revelation, almost as if they are quotation marks! It’s like He is saying – pay attention! I’m trying to tell you something!

Now, if that is not enough, we have John’s witness in John, chapter one. If you have a shofar, now would be a good time to blow it because John gets it! He puts the icing on the cake!

John 1:1 – In the beginning (right off, he directs us back to Genesis 1:1!)  was the Word (which begs – which Word? את!), and the Word was with God (Eloheim) (Yes, the Alef Tav is right next to Eloheim!), and the Word was God (Eloheim). (Yes, Yeshua and the Father are one.) See the photo below.

Eloheim (God) is underlined in yellow. Do you see how our Et (את) is right next to Eloheim?!

Hebrew is read from right to left. Do you see how את is the 4th word? Ironically, the number 4 in Hebrew points to the Messiah! For instance, the 4th day of creation we have YHVH creating the greater light to rule the day (Yeshua) (Gen 1:14-19). The 4th millennium was when Yeshua came as a light to the world. (John 1:9, 8:12, 9:5, 12:35-36, 12:46) The 4 times Yeshua tells us that He is the Aleph Tav! 😉  The gestation period for a baby is 40 weeks, to name a few.

He wrote about Yeshua far more than I was aware of 20 years ago!

So as to not overwhelm you I will close for now but this should give you something to mull over until next time. Remember, there are no idle words in the Scripture. Especially in the original Hebrew!

I love those who love me,

And those who seek me diligently will find me.

Proverbs 8:17

Shalom, b’shem Yeshua!

A Loving Father Teaches His Children to Be Holy

Today’s Torah portion is the section I was born under, long, long ago. 😇 It is called Yithro and goes from Exodus 18:1 through 20:26. In honor of my loving Father, here are the 10 commandments that this section encompasses.

Of all the commandments, this is the one I struggle with. Half of this one anyway. I loved my dad dearly. 💗

I hope you are having, or had, a blessed Sabbath. Shavua tov! (Have a good week!) 💕

Tonight/ Tomorrow (the 7th day) is Holy 🙌 ~ per יה

With THREE stand-alone Alef Tavs reinserted.
24) So they laid it up till morning, as Moses commanded; and it did not stink, nor were there any worms in it.
25) Then Moses said, “Eat that today, for today is a Sabbath to YHVH; today you will not find it in the field.
26) “Six days you shall gather it, but on the seventh day, the Sabbath, there will be none.” - Exo 16:24-26

Sunset tonight begins the Sabbath to YHVH.

Here is the challenge: Do no work after sunset tonight until sunset tomorrow evening and see if YHVH will bless you. Look for His sign. Think you will be bored? Go to your favorite bible search engine and do a search on the word “Sabbath”, writing down all the references.

More verses where YHVH says the 7th day is holy

May Yeshua bless you as you bless the Father. Shabbat shalom! 💕

Prophecy of Yeshua in 1 Kings 22:24-27

Have a look at these verses and decide for yourself if these 1 Kings verses are a coincidence or if they are prophecies that were fulfilled with Yeshua.

Compare with these two accounts. One in Matthew and the other in Luke.

And:

First Kings continues:

Micaiah delivered to the governor.

Compared with Matthew 27:2 –

Yeshua delivered to the governor.

Side note: Micaiah means “Who is like Yah?” (H4322 – מִיכָיָהוּ)

Have a blessed day as you bless YHVH. 💕

Ancient Matthew Epistle

A copy of Matthew in an ancient form of Hebrew not written today, was found back in the 15th century. It is said to be the oldest known copy of Matthew and it is thought that it was written even before the epistle was translated into Greek. It is known as Shem Tov’s Hebrew Matthew. The photo above shows a small clippet of Matthew, chapter 1, verse 25.

…”And he called את His name Yeshua.”

Matt 1:25b
The quote is from the last line in this photo.

Here is a copy of the page with the two “Yeshua” highlighted in yellow:

Matthew 1:18-25. From the middle of the page, where the writing is large, to the end of the page is commentary.

Now let’s break down the first instance the angel says “Yeshua” from Matthew 1:21.

The red underlined words are broken down here:

The yellow underlined words are broken down here:

If the Father wants His son to be called Yeshua then that’s what I will call Him! 😉 Since the angel of YHVH told Joseph to call the Messiah, Yeshua, then, by golly, that’s what I will call Him too! Because He saved (y’hoshia יהושיע) me from my sins!

Amein!

Going for the A+

Exo 15:25 - So he (Moses) cried out to YHVH, and YHVH showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. 
There He (YHVH) made a statute and an ordinance for them, and there He tested them,
The test, and reward.

Why does He test us?

They are being tested regarding His Sabbath too, like we are, every week.

Every single human who ever walked on earth is tested. Even Messiah Yeshua! What were His responses to haSatan?

Yeshua quotes Torah. Of course!

Hasatan tries a second time. This time quoting Psalm 91:11 & 12.

Matt 4:5 -Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple,
6) and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:

‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’
and,

‘In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.' "

But Yeshua quotes Torah again!

Matt 4:8 -Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory.
9) And he said to Him (Yeshua), “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
Yeshua quotes Torah all three times! More specifically, Deuteronomy, and Deut 6 twice!

What happens next? Hasatan leaves Him alone and angels minister to Him. He passed the test with Torah!

How are we doing in our tests?

Yeshua (את) Fights For Israel

In the last post we hear Moses telling the frightened Israelites that Yeshua will fight for them. This post will show the proof! We are still in the B’shallach Torah portion but turn to Exodus 14:24.

The first verse reads: (with our Aleph Tav reinserted)

Photo of a gold chariot wheel of Pharaoh (4 spokes) on the bottom of the Red Sea, taken by Ron Wyatt. https://wyattmuseum.com/chariot-wheels-in-the-red-sea/2011-669

Yeshua was there! HE troubled Pharaoh’s army, and he place a stand-alone Alef Tav in Torah as proof, as well as leaving relics on the bottom of the Red Sea for us to find 4,000+/- years later! Yeshua, the Salvation of YHVH!

On to our 2nd witness in the next verse.

Photo of coral encrusted chariot wheels in the Red Sea (ים סוף), taken by Ron Wyatt. https://wyattmuseum.com/chariot-wheels-in-the-red-sea/2011-669

Remember that Hebrew is verb oriented (whereas English is noun oriented). Hebrew verbs usually precede the noun that’s in action. So when the Hebrew verb – ויסר “And He took off” is followed by אֵת, we very easily understand that Yeshua (who said 4 times in Revelation that He is the alpha and omega (Aleph Tav, in Hebrew, which is what He would have been speaking to John in)) is who the noun is! Rightly did Yeshua say:

The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us! The Word now sits at the right side of the Father and reigns forevermore!

Amein!

B’shallach Torah portion = Exo 13:17 through Exo 17:16

Shabbat shalom 💕 scattered Israel!

Stand still and see the Salvation of YHVH

Today’s Torah reading is packed with goodness! The children of Israel are finally leaving Egypt, but the Egyptian army is chasing them. Fear grips their hearts but Moses assures the people that Yeshua, the Salvation of YHVH, will protect them, even fight for them!

(The “t” on the end of “Yeshua” just means “of”. So it could read – ET Yeshua of YHVH.) (Notice the hyphenated alef tav in front of Yeshua.)

The next verse is the featured image of this post.

“YHVH will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.” - Exo 14:14

A lot of times it seems as if we are battling evil all by ourselves, but Yeshua does fight for His people! Stand still and see Yeshua of YHVH!

B’shallach Torah portion = Exo 13:17 through Exo 17:16

Shabbat shalom 💕 scattered Israel.

Shabbat shalom 💕☃️

Exodus 31:13-17

13) Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am YHVH who sanctifies (sets you apart) you.
14) ‘You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people.
15) ‘Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to YHVH. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death.
16) ‘Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant.
17) ‘It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days YHVH made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed.’ ”

I love Yeshua, the Torah made flesh who lives forevermore!

Zimri in 1 Kings 16:12

Hebrew names have meaning. We have looked at some Hebrew names and their meanings before. While reading through First Kings again, more slowly this time, the significance of some stand-alone Alef Tavs are becoming more clear. This blog is about one in particular. Turn with me to 1 Kings 16:12. The verse reads in English:

Here is the same verse in Hebrew:

“Zimri” highlighted in black. “ET”, our stand-alone Alef Tav, Yeshua, highlighted in purple.

Looking up Zimri in http://www.blueletterbible.org gave me this entry:

Not much there to glean. But then I clicked on the root word (H2167).

Clicking on the root word link was more informative. It gave me this:

But I needed to go deeper so I scrolled down to the Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon and saw this:

Now we’re getting somewhere! Zimri’s root means to prune! I had to confirm this because most definitions said “to praise, or sing”, which, we should surely be praising Yeshua but I was looking for something more concrete.

Looking in my Modern Hebrew Dictionary confirmed the findings.

“Zamar” (זמר) does, indeed, mean “to prune”!

Now that we’ve confirmed that, can we think of any references to Yeshua and vine pruning?

John 15:2 - “Every branch in Me that does not bear fruit He takes away; and every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit.
3) “You are already clean because of the word which I have spoken to you.
4) “Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me.
John 15:6 - “If anyone does not abide in Me, he is cast out as a branch and is withered; and they gather them and throw them into the fire, and they are burned.
7) “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
8) “By this My Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit; so you will be My disciples."
~ Yeshua

So, as Yeshua (את), through Zimri, (meaning “to prune”) pruned all of Baasha’s family off for being evil, so too will He do to the evil in this generation. Those who bear fruit will be lovingly pruned to bear more fruit but the evil will be cut off to throw into the fire.
