Hello friend. Welcome back. There is a stand-alone Alef Tav in 2 Kings 8:12 and you can determine what you think it means. By now, if you’ve been reading these blogs, you realize that the four times in Revelation (1:8, 1:11, 21:6 & 22:13) where the translators inserted “Alpha and Omega” instead of the original Hebrew “Aleph Tav”, which Yeshua would have been speaking, you know that there are hundreds of stand-alone (unhyphenated) representations of Yeshua in the older testament, in the form of untranslatable את (Alef Tav)!
Our verse and the preceding verse read (with the אֵת reinserted in yellow):
In short, Elisha goes into a trance and foresees Hazael’s future.
In Revelation, we have Yeshua’s angel saying to John:
Elisha prophecied to Hazael. It seems to me that the stand-alone Alef Tav in this verse is saying two things. One, that Elisha knew Yeshua and testified of Him in his day, and two, that the prophecy came from Yeshua.
What do you think?
Thank you for stopping by. The reason for these blogs is to give those who are seekers witnesses of Yeshua in the older testament. To show the people who say that the older testament is unimportant anymore, that Yeshua, who lives today, is interwoven all throughout Yah’s words, making the words themselves also still alive. And also, to show those people, like my dearly loved uncle, who sadly have, for whatever reason, denounced Yeshua as Messiah, that Yeshua is indeed Messiah and that everything He did the first time He came was prophecied in the older testament. It all ties together perfectly.
May you be blessed as you bless YHVH. 💕
