What if I told you that the first evidences of Yeshua being the Light of Yah were not in the newer testament, but in Genesis, 2 Samuel and Isaiah? What if I told you that Yeshua as Light was announced in the 16th verse of the first chapter of the whole bible? He was. And on the fourth day, no less! (Seeing as how He first came in the 4th millennium, as a day is as 1000 years. ☺) Let’s take a quick look to build our foundation.
Gen 1:14 – Then Eloheim said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years; 15 – “and let them be for lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth”; and it was so. 16 – Then Eloheim made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also. 17 – Eloheim set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, 18 – and to rule over the day and over the night, and 👉to divide the light from the darkness👈. And Eloheim saw that it was good. 19 – So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.
But there are two witnesses of Yeshua being the Light of Yah that have been hidden. Would you like to enter the sode level of study? 😇 Turn with me in your bible to 2 Samuel 12:9. It reads:
2Sa 12:9 ‘Why have you despised the commandment of YHVH, to do evil in His sight? You have killed Uriah the Hittite with the sword; you have taken his wife to be your wife, and have killed him with the sword of the people of Ammon.
On the surface we have nothing. In the English the pearls are forever hidden. It’s when you dig beeper into the Hebrew that the treasures pop within reach! Look at this…
Let’s break it down even further!
Now please understand that this treasure does not diminish what 2 Samuel 12:9 says at face value. Not at all. It just means that there is another layer of understanding to the verse. If you would like one more pearl, keep reading!
Now turn in your bible to Isaiah 8:2. It reads:
Isa 8:2 “And I will take for Myself faithful witnesses to record, Uriah the priest and Zechariah the son of Jeberechiah.”
At this point you may see where I’m going since we have another Uriah (UriYah), but these two instances are the only instances of UriYah having a stand alone Alef Tav next to them. And this verse is speaking of “faithful witnesses”. I know of no greater witness than Yeshua, the Light of Yah! But I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s look at this verse closer.
The Apostle Yeshua loves, John, gets it. He completely understands that Yeshua is the Aleph Tav (את).
And Yeshua Himself tries to help us connect the dots:
And if twice isn’t enough…
There are some people who proclaim that you must eat only fruits, grains and vegetables (no meat) to be filled with light because this vegetable has so-and-so angstroms of light and this vegetable has so-and-so angstroms of light and that even cooked vegetables have so-and-so…etc., etc., etc… I would say, if you don’t have Yeshua you should definitely stick with vegetables-only or if you chop up the Torah unrecognizable to suit some self-righteous agenda so that your followers see you as above Yah’s Word, then yes, you need all the angstroms you can get. But Yeshua says, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” Honey, if you follow Yeshua, and have the testimony of the Word of Eloheim you HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE ALREADY!
Be filled with Light!
Shalom, b’shem Yeshua haMashiach
