Have you ever wondered where did our Alphabet came from and why is the order of the letters in certain order?

I would call this so exciting subject “the mystery, which hath been kept in silence through times eternal.” (Rom 16:25) – the gospel hidden, yet clearly outlined, in the Paleo-Hebrew Aleph-Beth.

I wonder after reading this presentation below, would there be someone among you, especially some mothers, perhaps homeschooling parents and teachers, who would be interested in helping me to create some cards for children? In any country in the world children are learning their basic Alphabets in order to know how to read and write. There are 22 picture-letters in Paleo-Hebrew and any child can grasp them since they all love pictures. But the main reason to teach our own children this Paleo-Hebrew Aleph-Beth is that along with it they could also understand the gospel message about Jesus as our Deliverer as well. Such lesson would guide them throughout the rest of their lives and in each age they could come back to it as the solution to their life dilemmas. And so can we, who are grown ups. We all are children of God! May this study inspires you to look into the marvelous mystery of God’s love and awaken in you love response! Love, agape, self-sacrificing love of our Abba Father and His Beloved Son, our Saviour calls for it. His LOVE (AhavaHebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 02Hebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 01) awakens our love. Let’s dive into it. 

First of all, our familiar “from A to Z” is not in a correct order at all. Even Greek “from Alpha to Omega” α-ω doesn’t carry proper order. “Z” is originally the 7th letter and “Omega” in Hebrew didn’t exist at all. It was Omicron (literally “little or micro “o”), which stands forHebrew picture 16Ayin – the Eye in Paleo-Hebrew and there it was the 16th letter. How did “Z” got to the end of today’s Alphabet is something I don’t know. But the Omega is very intriguing to me. Because it replaces the Tav as being originally the last letter of Paleo-Hebrew Aleph-Beth. Hebrew picture 22Tav refers to Covenant, Mark, Seal, Sign, Memorial, while O-mega can be translated as “Mega-Ayin” – A Huge Eye. The Eye of the All-knowing God. But in the context of changed order of Aleph-beth it is Satan who imposes himself to be the “All-Seeing-eye” as you can see even in the one dollar bill.

1 dollar bill 1

He has a serious reason to mess up the order of these picture-letters! It is intended to confuse and wipe out the gospel hidden in it, every child could understand. Gospel is the only solution to our selfishness. That’s why he is shuffling with them. Here is that all seeing eye in the Catholic church:

all seeing eye - StJean_Abbatiale

Tav refers to Jesus’ sacrifice, while Omega refers to Satan’s arrogant effort to be like Most High in the sense of All-Controlling-Eye. Is 14:13-14.

Well, let’s look at the original order of the letters (read from right to left):

  Hebrew picture 05 Hebrew picture 04 Hebrew picture 03 Hebrew picture 02 Hebrew picture 01

Hebrew picture 11 Hebrew picture 10 Hebrew picture 09 Hebrew picture 08 Hebrew picture 07Hebrew picture 06

 Hebrew picture 16 Hebrew picture 15 Hebrew picture 14 Hebrew picture 13 Hebrew picture 12

פ צ ק ר ש ת

Before we get into the message interwoven in it, please realize that these are not letters at all. Rather they are the icons or simplified representations of the real things! You might look at each picture and see and read as follows:

1Hebrew picture 01Ox, 2Hebrew picture 02Tent, 3Hebrew picture 03Camel, 4Hebrew picture 04Door veil, 5Hebrew picture 05Kneeling worshiping man beholding some fresh revelations from his God and raising his hands in excitement, 6Hebrew picture 06Tent peg or nail, 7Hebrew picture 07Tool like a plow or an ax, 8Hebrew picture 08Tent wall protecting the privacy from outside – ordinary things, 9Hebrew picture 09Basket, something surrounding you, 10Hebrew picture 10Mighty arm, 20Hebrew picture 11Palm of a hand, 30Hebrew picture 12Shepherd’s rod, symbol of teaching and guiding, 40Hebrew picture 13Water, representing chaos or carrier of something, 50Hebrew picture 14Seed, vitality, continuation of the previous generation, 60Hebrew picture 15Thorn or support, 70Hebrew picture 16Eye, discernment, judgment, 80 Hebrew picture 17Speaking mouth, 90 Hebrew picture 18Man on his side in a great need, hungry hunter, fish hook – desire for something we are “hooked” into, 100 Hebrew picture 19Sun or horizons, back of the head, something behind our sight or outside of our awareness, 200 Hebrew picture 20Head, choicest, the best, the first-fruit, 300 Hebrew picture 21Teeth, consummation, but also crushing, 400 Hebrew picture 22Two sticks to form a sign to lead you, mark, memorial, seal, covenant. 

When God spoke with Adam, one hour of their conversation would be equivalent to a university education today. How do we know? Just read a simple parable of Jesus and you can find libraries full of books explaining it. See Jn 21:25. Each real thing represented by these Aleph-Beth “symbol-letters” speaks volumes! Each one represents certain principle of life and we all relate to it one way or another. We are very blessed if we understand and live in harmony with these principles. On the other hand, our ignorance and their abuse is detrimental. Just like food was given to our regeneration, but overeating or eating unhealthy food is speeding our degeneration and brings premature death!

But why are these things or principles of life in certain order? Could it be that they build one upon another and form kind of basic DNA of our lives? Oh, yes. You probably already heard about 10 patriarchs starting from Adam to Noah. Their names form a Messianic message. There are many websites explaining it, here are just two examples:

http://www.khouse.org/articles/2000/284/

Hebrew

English

Adam

Man

Seth

Appointed

Enosh

Mortal

Kenan

Sorrow

Mahalalel

The Blessed God

Jared

Shall come down

Enoch

Teaching

Methuselah

His death shall bring

Lamech

The despairing

Noah

Rest, or comfort

Here is a summary of God’s plan of redemption, hidden within a genealogy in Genesis! You will never convince me that a group of Jewish rabbis deliberately “contrived” to hide the “Christian Gospel” right here in a genealogy within their venerated Torah!

Evidences of Design

The implications of this discovery are far more deeply significant than may be evident at first glance. It demonstrates that in the earliest chapters of the Book of Genesis, God had already laid out His plan of redemption for the predicament of mankind. It is the beginning of a love story, ultimately written in blood on a wooden cross which was erected in Judea almost 2,000 years ago.

I love this brother’s comment since I came to very similar conclusion – when I discovered the Plan of Redemption right in the very first verse of the Bible!

Here is similar explanation of the names from Adam to Noah:

https://scottthong.wordpress.com/2007/01/26/hidden-revelation-in-the-genealogy-from-adam-to-noah/

Adam – Man
Seth – Appointed
Enosh – Mortal
Kenan – Sorrow
Mahalalel – The blessed God
Jared – Shall come down
Enoch – Teaching
Methuselah – His death shall bring
Lamech – Despairing
Noah – Comfort and rest

Put those meanings into a complete sentence and you get: Man (is) appointed mortal sorrow, (but) the blessed God shall come down teaching. His death shall bring (to us, the) despairing, the comfort and rest.

And there you have it, in the names of Adam to Noah, a summary of the New Testament message – the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

For Jesus is Himself God, who came down to Earth to teach. His sacrificial death on the cross washed away the sins of despairing man, and gave them comfort and rest.

Wow that’s great eh! I would say there is no way it could be by chance. A seemingly boring genealogy holds inside itself a short summary of the New Testament, and also holds the statement that Jesus is God.

Jesus was right when He said the whole of Scripture speaks of Him!

…….

Finally, we are ready to read similar way the beautiful message in a given order of the Aleph-beth. This is my reading of it in Paleo-Hebrew, but we can’t exhaust the depth and beauty of it. So if you will find additional insights or other context, please, share it in comment below:

The Almighty Servant Hebrew picture 01 of His House Hebrew picture 02– our Universe, Abba, the everlasting Father Hebrew picture 02Hebrew picture 01(Is 9:6; Rom 8:15; Gal 4:6; Mk 14:36), lifts up Hebrew picture 03 (Jn 12:32) the curtain-veil Hebrew picture 04 (Mt 27:51) and reveals Hebrew picture 05 (Is 53:1) the nailed Man Hebrew picture 06 (Gen 1:1Hebrew picture 22Hebrew picture 01Hebrew picture 06Jn 19:5) who was to be cut-off Hebrew picture 07 (Gen 3:15; Dan 9:26; Heb 2:14-15) in order to prepare a safe place within His Tabernacles, where He is Hebrew picture 08 (Ps 16:11; Ps 23:4-6; Ps 43:3; Ps 46:4; Mt 1:23; Rev 3:12) for you and me (Jn 14:1-3). Whatever surrounds Hebrew picture 09 you and causes you to be in a painful bondage (whether oppressive government or closest family member, such as abusive husband or father, or your own addictions – Satan, sin or your own selfishness. (Jn 8:32-36) He will get you out of it (Ex 20:1-2) by His arm Hebrew picture 10i(Ex 6:6-7; Ps 98:1). How? In His palm Hebrew picture 11 (Is 49:16) is His Torah as the Shepherd’s rod, by which He will guide Hebrew picture 12 you (Deut 6:1-9; Ps 1:1-2; Jer 31:33; Mal 4:4) to the living waters and in your womb Hebrew picture 13 (Song 4:13-15; Jer 17:13; Jn 7:38; Rev 7:17) will spring the Seed of life Hebrew picture 14 (Lk 8:11; Jn 1:14) that will support you and aid Hebrew picture 15 (Jer 17:7; Ps 20:1-2; Job 4:4; Is 41:10) your  understanding Hebrew picture 16 (Ps 119:34) of the spoken Word Hebrew picture 17 (Jn 1:14; Mt 4:4) of the Righteous One Hebrew picture 18 (Lk 23:47) also known as The Desire of All Nations (Hag 2:7) who will come at the last days Hebrew picture 19 (Rev 22:20). He is my Beloved, the Choicest One Hebrew picture 20 (Song 2:16, Song 5:8-10; Song 5:16), His love towards me is burning with unquenchable zeal Hebrew picture 21 and the same way He feels also towards you (Ex 3:2-6; Ps 69:9; Jn 2:17; Zec 2:8), He will seal the Marriage (Mt 25:6-10; Hos 2:21-22) Covenant Hebrew picture 22 (with His own blood – Ex 24:8 and we as His Bride too – Rev 12:11; Heb 12:4; Mt 24:9), He will make it happen and we shall be with Him at last. Hallelu-Yah!  (Gen 6:18; Gen 9:9; Gen 17:7; Ex 2:24; Ex 6:5; Ex 34:28; Lev 26:40-46; Ez 9:4).

This Covenant is referred to in the Book of Life of the Lamb slain Hebrew picture 22Hebrew picture 01 before the foundation of the world. (Rev 13:8; Ps 40:7 – see Gen 1:1)

Everything comes from our AbbaHebrew picture 02Hebrew picture 01and revolves around His Son Aleph-Tav, the Living WordHebrew picture 22Hebrew picture 01who longs to dwell in you and me!

“When the fruit is brought forth, immediately he putteth in the sickle, because the harvest is come.” Christ is waiting with longing desireHebrew picture 18for the manifestation of Himself in His church. When the character of Christ shall be perfectly reproduced in His people, then He will come to claim them as His own. {COL 69.1}
It is the privilege of every Christian not only to look for but to hasten the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, (2 Peter 3:12, margin). Were all who profess His name bearing fruit to His glory, how quickly the whole world would be sown with the seed of the gospel. Quickly the last great harvest would be ripened, and Christ would come to gather the precious grain. {COL 69.2}

To seal the CovenantHebrew picture 22 is really the very key, the climax of the message hidden in Aleph-Beth. The word Covenant ברית Hebrew picture 22Hebrew picture 10Hebrew picture 20Hebrew picture 02is hidden in the very first word of the Bible: Bereshit בראשיתHebrew picture 22Hebrew picture 10Hebrew picture 21Hebrew picture 01Hebrew picture 20Hebrew picture 02. Look at this powerful insight:

The plan for our redemption was not an afterthought, a plan formulated after the fall of Adam. It was a revelation of “the mystery which hath been kept in silence through times eternal.” Romans 16:25, R. V. It was an unfolding of the principles that from eternal ages have been the foundation of God’s throne. From the beginning [בראשית], God and Christ knew of the apostasy of Satan, and of the fall of man through the deceptive power of the apostate. God did not ordain that sin should exist, but He foresaw its existence, and made provision to meet the terrible emergency. So great was His love for the world, that He covenanted [ברית Berit] to give His only-begotten Son, “that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16. {DA 22.2} And this mystery is actually hidden in God’s Aleph-Beth.

Ps 40:7 KJV Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of Me.

Heb 10:7 EBR Then, said I—Lo! I am come—in the heading of the scroll, it is written of Me—to do, O God, Thy will.

What do you think is the “heading of the scroll”? Yes, it is the very first verse of the Bible!!! Check it out in

Genesis 1:1 Rediscovered Through the Pictures.

The one who stands nearest to Christ will be he who on earth has drunk most deeply of the spirit of His self-sacrificing loveHebrew picture 22Hebrew picture 01—love that “vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, … seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil” (1 Cor 13:4-5),—love that moves the disciple, as it moved our Lord, to give all, to live and laborHebrew picture 01and sacrificeHebrew picture 22 even unto death, for the saving of humanity. This spirit was made manifest in the life of Paul. He said, “For to me to live is Christ;” for his life revealed Christ to men; “and to die is gain,”—gain to Christ; death itself would make manifest the power of His grace, and gather souls to Him. “Christ shall be magnified in my body,” he said, “whether it be by life or by death.” Phil 1:21-20. {DA 549.3}

Here are few notes to some of the phrases:

DaletHebrew picture 04 Door veil

Heb 10:19-20 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh

veil rent

Jn 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.

Jn 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.

YHVH – Jehovah – יהוה – Hebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 06Hebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 10

YHVDH – Jehudah – יהודה – Hebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 04Hebrew picture 06Hebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 10

Only one letter makes difference between the name of our Creator and the tribe through which Messiah should come. It isHebrew picture 04DALET, which we translate as the Door, but originally it was a tent veil. In the context of the House of God, Beth-El, it is the Temple veil, which was torn in twain at the crucifixion of Jesus. True Jehudah is Jesus Himself. He is theHebrew picture 04door to יהוה –Hebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 06Hebrew picture 05Hebrew picture 10

What does the temple curtain being torn have to do with Jesus’ death on the cross?  Everything!

 The Veil and the Separation

God put the temple curtain there for the safety of His people for no one can enter into the Holy of Holies and live.  Only the high priest could do this and then only once a year but they tied a rope around his waist in the event he did something wrong and if he died as a result, they could drag him out from behind the curtain since they couldn’t go in and get him and they too would perish.   The veil represents the separation of a Holy God from sinful mankind because our sins have separated us from God (Isaiah 59:2).  The size and thickness of the curtain ensured that no one would accidentally fall into the Holy of Holies as the veil was 60 feet long, 30 feet wide, and was about one inch thick and was so massive and heavy that it took 300 priests to manipulate it so there was no way that someone could inadvertently trip and stumble into the Holy of Holies and subsequently die as a result.

The Tearing of His Body

Jesus’ own body was given as atonement for our sins and His death satisfied the wrath of God.  What was due to us, He took because He paid a debt He did not owe for a debt we could never pay.  The flesh of Jesus’ body was literally torn and as Isaiah write “many were astonished at you— his appearance was so marred, beyond human semblance, and his form beyond that of the children of mankind” (Isaiah 52:14). The Romans were experts at scourging.  They used a wooden rod that had several 18-24 inch long straps of leather attached to it and at the end of it were sharp, rugged pieces of metal, wire, glass, and jagged fragments of bone and cut deeply through the victim’s skin and into his flesh, shredding his muscles and sinews.  This was so effective that much of the tissue was removed and often the spine itself was visible by the time they were finished.  Jesus’ literal flesh was torn to shreds and the skin which protects the internal organs and bones was torn and fell away by the scourging so Jesus’ own body was torn.

My note: God’s wrath against sin is so strong that it was JESUS standing between the living and the death – between HOLY GOD and sinful Adam, humans, me. When Jesus cried out loud: Eli, Eli, why have You abandon Me?! – we could say that actually through the hands of this Roman soldiers God satisfied His justice. We brought God to complete absurdity. His Son, the only One, the One He loved to the uppermost had to be beaten and executed by Himself. We can’t fathom and understand how painful it had to be to our Father!

The Tearing of the Curtain

At the very moment that “Jesus cried out again with a loud voice and yielded up his spirit” (Matt 27:50) “the curtain of the temple was torn in two, from top to bottom. And the earth shook, and the rocks were split” (Matt 27:51).  The curtain was torn at the exact moment of Jesus’ death because our separation from God by our sins had been paid for by Jesus on the cross.  Notice that the temple curtain was torn from the top down to the bottom indicating that it was torn from the top by God Himself.  What no human could possible tear by human strength, God did by the death of the Son of God.  Now we can go behind the curtain and have access into the Holy of Holies.  It wasn’t Jesus’ torn flesh that ended our separation from God but His sinless life, death, and resurrection.  Now “we have confidence to enter the holy places by the blood of Jesus” (Heb 10:19).

Conclusion

What a price God paid to redeem us from an eternal separation from Himself.  How could anyone ever imagine such a priceless thing?  Since He didn’t spare His own Son for us (Rom 8:32), don’t we have an obligation to tell others how they might be saved (Acts 4:12)?  Shouldn’t we feel compelled to tell others what God has done for us?

Those who have made a wrong use of means dedicated to God will be required to give an account of their stewardship. Some have selfishly grasped means because of their love of gain. Others have not a tender conscience; it has become seared through long-cherished selfishness. They viewHebrew picture 05sacred and eternal things from a low standpoint. Through their long continuance in a wrong course their moral sensibilities seem paralyzed. It seems impossible to elevate their viewsHebrew picture 05and feelings to the exalted standard clearly brought to viewHebrew picture 05in the word of God. Unless there is a thorough transformation by the renewing of the mind [Rom 12:1-2], this class will find no place in heaven. Those who have pursued a course of selfishness and wrong, not regarding even the treasury of God as sacred, could not appreciate the purity and holiness of the sanctified in the kingdom of heaven, or the value of the rich glory, the eternal reward, reserved for the faithful overcomers [That’s the name of Jacob, the Deceiver, who became ISRAEL, the Overcomer and it applies to all of us: Is 44:5]. Their minds have so long run in a low, selfish channel that they cannot appreciate eternal things. They do not value salvation. It seems impossible to elevate Hebrew picture 03their minds to rightly estimate THE PLAN OF SALVATION or the value of the atonement [YOM KIPPURIM – DAY ATONEMENT]. Selfish interests have engrossed the entire being; like a loadstone they hold the mind and affections, binding them down to a low level. Some of these persons will never attain to perfection of Christian character [Please sign up for character building trainingbecause they do not see the value and necessity of such a character. Their minds cannot be elevated Hebrew picture 03so that they will be charmed with holiness. Self-love and selfish interests have so warped the character that they cannot be made to distinguish Hebrew picture 16the sacred and eternal from the common. God’s cause and His treasury are no more sacred to them than common business or means devoted to worldly purposes. {2T 519.1}

Here I just found a web with available fonts for you: The Story in the Letters.

True happiness is a byproduct of holiness. May this insight into our Aleph-Beth brings us closer to our Abba FatherHebrew picture 02Hebrew picture 01and His Beloved Son Hebrew picture 22Hebrew picture 01.

True religion ennobles the mind, refines the taste, sanctifies the judgment, and makes its possessor a partaker of the purity and holiness of heaven. It brings angels near, and separates us more and more from the spirit and influence of the world. It enters into all the acts and relations of life, and gives us the “spirit of … a sound mind,” and the result is happiness and peace.—The Signs of the Times, October 23, 1884. {RC 161.7}

Today (March 13, 2016) I discovered very meaningful insight to Aleph-Beth from a man I never heard about before. I don’t know him (yet) but what he says is very close to my study and gives deeper insights in many ways. I love his Christ centered approach.

Here is Slovak description of the project for prospective photographer, who would like to help me with the “AlephBeth book for SMALL & big” called Slabikar pre MALYCH aj velkych.
