The sixth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet is vav, which has a numerical value of 6 and a pictograph that looks like a tent peg or a nail. Vav’s pictograph symbolically represents: joining together, making secure, or becoming bound or nailed to. Therefore, as the sixth day of Hanukkah opens let’s be joined to the first and sixth Hanukkah “I AM” statements of Yeshua – “I am the Light of the World.”
It’s not a coincidence that Yeshua’s first “I AM” statement during Hanukkah and His sixth are connected to the light of the world. Please keep in mind that the scriptural passage John 8:12-John 10:42 portrays Yeshua (Jesus) during the Feast of Dedication (Hanukkah).
The first vav in God’s Word is in Genesis 1:1 – “In the beginning God created the heavens and [vav] the earth.” This first vav in scripture sets a precedence. It’s the sixth word as well as the twenty-second letter of the first verse. This first vav alludes to the power to connect all the powers of the Hebrew Living Letters from alef to tav.
The Hebrew word “et,” which is spelled alef-tav, not only represents the entire Hebrew Alphabet, but it refers to the Word of God from which the Hebrew Living Letters emanate. Revelation 19:13 tells us that Messiah Yeshua is called by the name the Word of God: “And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood; and he called his name, The Word of God” (Revelation 19:13 Lamsa’s Aramaic).
Messiah Yeshua is also referred to as “I am the Alef and the Tav, the beginning and the end, the first and the last” (Revelation 22:13). In this verse, Yeshua directly refers to Himself as Adonai – the God of Mercy. When He did this, Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) was/is declaring that there is no other “god” beside Him. By the way, Yeshua literally proclaimed that He was the one Isaiah spoke about in Isaiah 41:4, Isaiah 44:6, and Isaiah 48:12. “For by Him were all things created that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him and for Him: And He is before all things and by Him all things consist” (Colossians 1:16-17).
Hebrew Sages interpret the word “et” (alef-tav) in Genesis 1:1 to include all the various objects of creation that are present within heaven and earth.
• “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men” (John 1:1-4 NASB).
• “And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power” (Hebrews 1:3 NASB).
Hebrew Mysticism reveals that in the beginning of creation when INFINITE LIGHT FILLED ALL-IN-ALL (i.e., all reality), God contracted His Infinite Light to create a place – a hallow empty space as it were – for the existence of finite worlds. Into this vacuum, God figuratively drew down a single line of light from the Infinite Source. Behold, through Alef-Tav who is the Light of the World all things came to be and are constantly upheld through the word of His power (i.e., the power of the word).
These Hebrew Sages say that this single ray of light is the secret of the Hebrew Living Letter “vav.” The first vav in the Bible serves to join matter (this spacetime continuum) with spirit (eternity). The first vav shows us the Messiah (Alef-Tav) and His power to connect heaven and earth. The mature Body of Christ (Messiah) will walk in this crossover place too, bringing heaven to earth.
It is always wise to be humble and teachable; because in this Kingdom Day, the royal priests of the Order of Melchizedek will come in the Spirit of Elijah to restore all things:
• “Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Indeed, Elijah is coming first and will RESTORE ALL THINGS” (Matthew 17:11 NKJV).
• “Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the TIMES OF THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS, which God has spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began” (Acts 3:19-21 NKJV)
We must always have an eye for redemption in everything, including the Antichrist, believe it or not! Didn’t God say that He is going to restore ALL things? The Antichrist’s number is infamously 666. Six is the number of man, because man was created in God’s image on the sixth day. E.W. Bullinger who wrote Numbers in Scripture says that the number 6 represents man without God. Therefore, one can interpret that 666 is a completely self-focused man. This is part of the mystery of iniquity. Please refer to http://wp.me/p158HG-bC and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/…/which-side-of-the-myst…/ and https://santatizing.wordpress.com/…/given-to-you-to-know-m…/.
So, the beast of the Antichrist can be a completely selfish man; but what is the Antichrist’s goal? To become like God. To become the head of the body of the Messiah himself. When Revelation 13:18 says “Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666,” we need to examine the redemptive side of His double-edged sword.
Just as one side of the double-edged sword for “love covers a multitude of sins” speaks of confidentiality while the other side speaks of us covering the sins we love, so it is with “let him who has understanding calculate the number… 666.” Refer to https://santatizing.wordpress.com/…/the-two-edges-of-love-…/. One side of the double-edged sword’s understanding of “666” we know is the number of the Antichrist Beast. The other side of “666” is the mystery of the number 666, which can also represent complete light – the Messiah Himself – when the Antichrist is turned right side up. Let him who has understanding, behold, that “666” can additionally represent the redemption of the Messiah bodily (i.e., you and I). ”666” can either represent the darkness of a completely selfish man in our body soul, and spirit; or it can represent the complete transformation/transfiguration of our body, our soul and our spirit into light … into the exact same image as Messiah. Refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/…/behold-th…/.
Let him who has understanding behold the redemption of all things. Let us behold (be and hold onto), “I am the Light of the World!”
• “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, ‘I AM the Light of the World. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12 NKJV).
• “As long as I AM in the world, I AM the Light of the World” (John 9:5 NKJV).
• “YOU ARE THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:14-16 NASB).
 What is the first “I AM” statement that Yeshua declared during Hanukkah? Answer: “I AM the Light of the World” in John 8:12.
 How can you connect heaven to earth?
 How can you shine perfectly like Messiah Yeshua – the Light of the World?
Happy Hearty Hanukkah!!!
