If you have your bible handy, turn to Genesis 3:24. It reads: “So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.”
On the surface in English there is nothing really spectacular, except for the fact that the tree of life is still on earth, being hidden/protected by cherubim. That would be pretty cool to find! But anyway…our treasure for today is once again found in the Hebrew.
Our verse in Hebrew reads:
וַיְגָרֶשׁ אֶת־הָֽאָדָם וַיַּשְׁכֵּן מִקֶּדֶם לְגַן־עֵדֶן אֶת־הַכְּרֻבִים וְאֵת לַהַט הַחֶרֶב הַמִּתְהַפֶּכֶת לִשְׁמֹר אֶת־דֶּרֶךְ עֵץ הַֽחַיִּֽים׃ ס
Which literally reads (reading from right to left: And He drove out (ויגרש) et-the man (את-האדם); and He placed (וישכן) from the east (מקדם) of Gan Eden (לגן-עדן) et-the cherubim (את-הכרבים) v’Et (ואת) flaming (להט) the sword (החרב)…
I started noticing while doing these Alef Tav studies that most of the time the stand-alone Aleph Tavs (את) by themselves pointed to Yeshua’s first time here, but when I came to a stand-alone Alef Tav with a vav (ואת), like this one, it pointed to Yeshua’s second coming. Like this example of Yeshua coming with a sword. The Hebrew letter “vav” (ו) represents a dagger or weapon, so it could easily give a pictute of Yeshua, the Aleph Tav, with a weapon.
Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of El Shaddai.Rev 19:15
So, here is our hint at Yeshua when He comes back.
Shalom, b’shem Yeshua haMashiach
