Messianic Insights - Beth Part 4 (Discovering Messiah Through Hebrew Alphabet)



Seven Hebrew letters have ‘crowns’ – some letters have various different ‘thorns’ and ‘points’.

There is a ‘little thorn’ or ‘point’ on the right hand corner of the Hebrew letter ‘aleph’ pointing ‘upwards’. 

Some Rabbi’s say “For 26 generations the Aleph complained before God: “I am the first of the letter yet You didn’t create Your world with me! Don’t worry, said God, the world and all its fullness were created for the Torah alone.  Tomorrow when I come to give my Torah at Sinai the first word I say will begin with you. And the very first letter of the first word of the first commandment begins with the first letter which has no sound: Aleph “I (‘אנכי’ – ‘anokiy’ – Strong’s H595) am the LORD your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, the house of slavery.” (Exodus 20 v 2).

The name of the first man was אדם ‘Adam’ – (Genesis 2 v 7) the name of the ‘herald’ of the last man will be אליה - ‘Elijah’ (Malachi 4 v 5).

The name of the first JEW is ‘אברהם’ – Abraham (Genesis 14 v 13).

אלף- ‘aleph’ can be reversed in Hebrew ףלא – ‘pele’.

The value of both words ‘aleph’ and ‘pele’ in Gematria is 111.  There are another number of words in the Torah also having the Gematria of 111.  Many of them relate to making a physical change of position that in some sense initiates a process of ‘spiritual ascent’.  Genesis 37 v 25 … Just before Joseph’s brothers sell him, the Torah uses the Hebrew word ‘הןלכים (Strong’s H1980 – ‘to walk, to go forth) - “Then they sat down to eat a meal.  And as they raised their eyes and looked, behold, a caravan of Ishmaelites was coming from Gilead, with their camels bearing aromatic gum and balm and myrrh, on their way to bring them down to Egypt.”

‘ALEPH’ – ‘אלף’ and ‘PELE’ – ‘פלא’ –‘FIRST/CHIEF’ AND ‘WONDERFUL’ – Judges 13 v 18 “But the angel of the LORD said to him, “Why do you ask my name, seeing it is ‘wonderful’ (margin = ‘incomprehensible’) – Strong’s H6383 ‘secret, wonderful’– ‘absolutely and supremely wonderful’ – a name which Isaiah gives to Emmanuel (Isaiah 9 v 6 - Strong’s H6382 ‘miracle, wonder’) – Exodus 15 v 11, Psalm 77 v 12, 15, 88 v 11, 119 v 129, Proverbs 30 v 4, Daniel 12 v 6 – “And one said to the an dressed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, “How long will it be until the end of these wonders (‘פלא’ – ‘pala’ (Strong’s H6382).

אבגד - God creates the world through the Hebrew letters – אבגד– Aleph, Beth, Gimel, Dalet

Aleph is comprised of one ‘vav’, in Hebrew indicating a ‘hook’ or a ‘connector’ and two ‘yuds’ indicating two ‘hands’ – every verse in Genesis chapter one begins with a ‘vav’.

א– Yahweh – a picture of our Father in Heaven

ב– Son – Yah ‘tabernacled’ in the ‘flesh’ – (John 1 v 14).

ג– Gimel is sent from the Beth (Son/House) and the Aleph (Father) – Malachi 4 v 4/6).  Beth is seen as man with his head bent walking from ב ‘beth’ (the house) to knock on the ד ‘dalet’ (door) of the ‘poor’ man.

ד– It is Messiah Who knocks on the ‘dalet’ (ד) of the human heart (Revelation 3 v 18/20).,


The second Hebrew letter ב is a בית ‘bayit’ – a house.  It is on the ground.  A house firmly set upon the earth.  Some sages say that the ‘dot’ which is called a ‘dagesh’ represents someone who lives within the ‘ב’ - ‘house’.  All the other Hebrew letters might fall over, but not a ‘ב’!

See how the base of the ‘בית’ (house) is so close to the earth.  The ground.  We are called to bow our knees to the ground and be ‘blessed’ – ברכ ‘barak’ (Strong’s H1288) – Psalm 118 v 26 – ברך – ‘berekh’ meaning ‘knee’ (Strong’s H1290 ‘ derived from ‘kneeling and blessing’.

You can walk into a בית ‘bayit’ and you are at home. God wants us to be at ‘home’ in this world.  So the Torah begins with a ‘bayit’ – בראדית  - ‘bereshit’ - “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1 v 1).

בית(bayit) – ‘house’ (Strong’s H1008) is related to בות‘but’ – (Aramaic 956) pronounced like ‘booth’ meaning ‘somewhere to pass the night’ – Mishneh Torah Seasons – 4 v 2).

For a Succoth ‘Tabernacles’ booth to be valid it was required to have three walls- just as the Hebrew letter בhas three sides, floor, wall, roof pointing upwards.

בית– 'bayith’ (Strong’s H1004) means more than just a ‘house’ – ‘tent’ – ‘tabernacle’ (Exodus 23 v 19, Joshua 6 v 24) – it can also mean ‘fortress’ – ‘palace/temple’ – and is even used of a ‘spider’s web’ or ‘man’s body as a house of clay’.

When Jacob slept in the wilderness, he was certain that he was alone, he was sure that he was alone.  But when he awoke, he had learned about ‘Beth’ – ‘bayit’ – ‘בית’ and declared “Surely God has been in this place and I did not know it!”  So he named the place ‘בית אל’ (‘Beth-el’) – a place of man became the ‘house of God ‘(Genesis 28 v 10/19).


In Egyptian hieroglyphics – ‘bit’ is the ideogram (symbol) of a ‘b.e.e.’ – ‘honey’ – and later ‘royalty’.

The Hebrew word for ‘b.e.e.’ – ‘swarm’ is דבורה is ‘deborah’ (Judges 4 v 4 - Strong’s H1682/16283) from the root ‘דבר’ – ‘dabar’ meaning ‘to speak, to utter, to order, lead’ (Strong’s H1696) possibly from the sense of order in ‘bee-dom’  or the sound of their buzzing being like a verbal muttering or murmuring’.

דבש ‘dabhash’ (Strong’s H1706 – ‘honey’ – possibly from its softness or its colour).

דבשת – ‘dabesheth’ (Strong’s H1707 – ‘camel’s hump’ possibly from is softness, resembling a ‘bee-hive’).


1.  Ben David – Son of victory/glory

2.  Ben Joseph – Son of suffering

Provers 8 v 30 Messiah besides God as the ‘Master Builder’.

Rabbi Chayim Tirer of Chernovitz - “Each letter in the Torah, small though it is, represents an entire world, an immense universe of Divine Light as a “builder’s blueprint”.

On a small piece of paper the architect designs the layout of an entire building with its apartments, stairwell, roof and hallways, drawing thin lines and circles, making little marks here and there.

To the uninitiated, the blueprint appears like a small drawing of scribbles and lines.

But the builder knows that each little square represents a magnificent vestibule with glorious arches and pillars and each tiny circle symbolises a corridor surrounded by a majestic colonnade.

In the same way, each letter of the Torah signifies an indescribably awesome and exalted world, a heavenly universe that transcends our comprehension.

And when the individual letters are linked to form a word, the worlds represent, combine and a marvellous spiritual structure comes into being.”

A contemporary illustration of this is offered by Geologists who look at the earth and see that there are land masses to the East, South and West.  Even beneath the ice cap of the South Pole, we find the continent of Antarctica.  But beneath the frozen mass of the North Pole, there is nothing.  The North is open.

In Scripture North represents ‘evil’ – “From the North the evil will be released upon all the inhabitants of the land.” (Jeremiah 1 v 14 – ‘north’ – Strong’s H6828) – ‘hidden, dark, gloomy’.

Psalm 74 – the Godly ‘remnant’ of Israel speak of the desolation of Zion.

Psalm 75 – presents the Messiah challenging the Enemy and taking the Kingdom in answer to their cry - God’s Name for a long time had been distant from Israel.

Psalm 76 - this Psalm shows Messiah seated in Zion, following the judgement from the North. Asaph is the biblical name for ‘Succoth’ – Exodus 34 v 22 (Strong’s H614 ‘אסף’ -Asiph).

Psalm 75 v 6  is one of the Psalms Asaph – speaking of the ‘Godly remnant’ – “Thy Name is near.” –“When I have taken the set time, I, even I, will judge uprightly.  Though the earth and all its inhabitants thereof are melting, I Myself set up its pillars”  Then He executes His judgements.  He deals with the wicked, the horn lifted up, the man of sin.  He puts down and lifts up.  The wicked will be cut off and the righteous exalted.

In the following Psalm (76) after the judgement coming from the North the Lord is now seen in Judah, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, His Name is great in Israel.  In Salem He has His tabernacle and in Zion His dwelling place.  There as the Prince of peace He broke the arrows, the shield and battle.
