Messianic Insights - Aleph Part 3 (Discovering Messiah Through Hebrew Alphabet) lightAleph

The Aleph = 2 yods (HAND) and a vav (NAIL)

Yod – 10th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet – numerical value of 10

Vav – 6th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet – numerical value of 6


Every holy letter serves as a channel to connect heaven with earth.  The א is seen as a ladder placed on the ground reaching to heaven.

“Then Jacob departed from Beersheba and went toward Haran.  And he came to a certain place and spent the night there, because the sun had set; and he took one of the stones of the place and put it under his head, and lay down in that place.  And he had a dream, and behold, a ladder was set on the earth with its top reaching to heaven ; and behold, the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.”  (Genesis 28 v 10/12).

The Hebrew word used here for ‘ladder’ is סלם ‘sulam’ (Strong’s H5551) – Samech – 60, Lamed – 30, Mem – 40 = 130.

The Torah was given from Mount Sinai “In the third month after the sons of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on that very day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.  When they set out from Rephidim, they came to the wilderness of Sinai, and camped in the wilderness; and there Israel camped in front of the mountain. …… Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke because the LORD descended upon it in fire; and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked violently.” (Exodus 19 v 1/2, 18).

The Hebrew word used here for  ‘Sinai’ סיני Strong’s H5514 – Samech – 60, Yod – 10, Nun – 50, Yod – 10 = 130.

When Christ spoke to Nathanael He was revealing to Him (a Jew) that He alone was the ladder to give access to heaven “And He said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you shall see the heavens opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” (John 1 v 51).

The observance of the Torah which was given on סיני (Sinai), serves as a ‘ladder’, a link to God.  This is also alluded to in the identical numerical value of סלם (ladder) – 130 and סיני (Sinai) – 130.

It appears that the Names of God and His Son are always brought back to Aleph as the key – the Aleph representing Leader, Strong Ox, Gentle Ox, Familiar Friend and Teacher.

יה– Yah – Yod – 10, Hey - 5 = 15. The 15th letter in the Torah is aleph - א

יהוה – YHVH – Yod – 10, Hey – 5, Vav – 6, Hey - 5 = 26. The 26th letter of the Torah is aleph – א

אל – El – Aleph – 1, Lamed - 30 = 31.  The 31st letter of the Torah is aleph – א

אלהים– Elohim – Aleph - 1, Lamed – 30, Hey – 5, Yod – 10, Mem – 40 = 86.  The 86th letter of the Torah is aleph = א

אב – Ab – Aleph – 1, Bet – 2 = 3.  The 3rd letter of the Torah is aleph – א

Yod = 10 – refers to the 10 trials to which Abraham was subjected

Tsade = 90 – refers to the age of Sarah when Isaac was born –

Genesis 17 v 17.

Chet = 8 – refers to the 8 days when Isaac was circumcised (first to be circumcised at that age) – Genesis 21 v 8

Qof = 100 – refers to the 100 years of Abraham’s age when Isaac was born (Genesis 21 v 5).

Proverbs 2 v 17 – “That leaves the companion of her youth, and forgets the covenant of her God.”  The Hebrew word used here for ‘youth’ is alluph - אלף (Strong’s H441) – the ‘gentle bullock, the familiar friend’.

Jeremiah 3 v 4 – “Have you not just now called to Me, My Father, Thou art the friend of my youth?” The Hebrew word used here for ‘youth’ is alluph – אלף (Strong’s H441) as above.

Jeremiah 11 v 19 “But I was like a gentle lamb led to the slaughter; and I did not now that they had devised plots against me, saying, “Let us destroy the tree with its fruit, and let us cut him ff from the land of the living, that his name be remembered no more.” The Hebrew reads “ … gentle lamb or an ox – the Hebrew word used here for ox is alluph – אלף (Strong’s H441).

Isaiah 30 v 24 “Also the oxen and the donkeys which work the ground will eat salted fodder which has been winnowed with shovel and fork.”  The Hebrew word used for oxen is eleph (Strong’s H504) meaning ‘to learn, to teach’.

Deuteronomy 7 v 13 “And He will love you and bless you and multiply you; He will also bless the fruit of your womb and the fruit of your ground, your grain and your new wine and your oil, the increase of your herd and the young of your flock, in the land which He swore to your forefathers to give you.” The Hebrew word used here for herd is eleph – אךף (Strong’s H504) meaning ‘family’ in the sense of ‘yoking and training’.
