We all know how John says in the first chapter of his epistle that Yeshua is the Word made flesh and dwelt among us, but how many of us have just sat quietly and pondered that? Do we really believe that to be a concrete notion?
We have seen many witnesses of Yeshua in the Torah but He can also be found in the Prophets and we will look at one example in Amos 8:11, which reads, in English:
“Behold, the days are coming,” declares Adonai YHVH,
“That I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water,
But of hearing the words of YHVH." - Amos 8:11
Most of us are familiar with that verse, but us English speakers miss the important witness of Yeshua in this verse.
There is a stand-alone Alef Tav right before “words [of] YHVH”. (Yeshua tells us FOUR times that He is the Aleph Tav in Revelation. (1:8, 1:11, 21:6, 22:13. He would have been speaking to John in Hebrew, not Greek.)
So the verse literally says:
Be blessed as you bless the Father. 💕
