Oftentimes when I come across a stand-alone (unhyphenated) Alef Tav the significance of it is not clear to me, but last night as I was reading the Torah portion one that I had skipped in the past became crystal clear! Turn in your bible to Exo 35:15. The verse reads (with the stand-alone Alef Tavs reinserted):
the incense altar, its poles, ואת oil of the anointing, ואת sweet incense, and the screen for the door at the entrance of the tabernacle;Exo 35:15 – a prophecy of Yeshua (as Aleph Tav) being anointed.
What occurred to me last night – the oil of anointing was ONLY for Aaron and his sons – the priests. Especially, the High Priests. Who is our High Priest?!
Exo 30:30 - And you shall anoint Aaron and his sons, and consecrate them, that they may minister to Me as priests. 31)And you shall speak to the children of Israel, saying, 'This shall be a holy anointing oil to Me throughout your generations.
Below are witnesses of Yeshua being anointed.
Yeshua, our High Priest was even anointed! The prophecy of the Aleph Tav came to pass! Upon realizing this discovery I looked to see if there were other witnesses of stand-alone Alef Tavs with anointing oil, and there were 3 others!
Four prophecies – four witnesses! 😀
Do you know what the kicker is? The Hebrew word for “anoint” is the same word as Messiah/Mashiach! So “Et shemen ha’meesh’cha” is literally “את oil of Mashiach/Messiah”! (H4888 and the root = H886)
Be blesses! Yeshua lives and He comes soon! Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!
