I AM THAT I AM
Shalom Shalom Brothers & Sisters,
I want to thank My GOD, My Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. For without Him there is no us. For without Him there is no existence of this universe. The majesty of this magnificient creation of our Father God came into existence and still IS because Our Father from the Beginning had His Son in His Mind to be the glue to our existence, the glue to the universe surrounding us.
The first part of this entry i want to share with you some insights with regards to GOD's introduction to Moses. I AM THAT I AM. *(This is solely my viewpoint and does not represent the teaching that i'm receiving from my place of feeding.)
So, let's begin. I was researching some stuff regarding the Hebrew alphabets and actually sinking my teeth into the letter ALEPH when this verse was used as part of an example. Something popped straight into my eyes. I've read this phrase on my E-Sword (PC bible) before but never noticed the full spelling in Hebrew.
משׁה אהיה אשׁר אהיה
It reads from right to left "MOSHEH AHYH ASHER AHYH" poetically translated in English I AM THAT I AM. In Hebrew it would mean something like "EXIST/BE! Who is EXIST/BE!"
GOD was telling Moses of HIS total EXISTING, HIS total BEING and that HE IS. But then again something struck and rang a bell in my head. AHYH sounds strangely familiar and close to my heart. Because in the Malay language, Ayah is Father! Now, like i said, this is purely my personal view point. But can you imagine... GOD telling Moses, "Moses, Daddy who IS Daddy." WOW! Imagine that. Most of us take this verse to be something pretty impersonal actually. GOD was presenting His absolute Glory as I AM THAT I AM. But now we see how GOD wants to be with us so closely, even with Moses. Daddy who IS Daddy... Man i tell you, i feel so blessed that He is now in us. That's how close He wanted to be with Moses but the Helper was not sent yet as the Son has not yet been glorified.
Ready for one more?
Check this out. In Arabic, Ayah means Sign or Miracle. So, GOD said this to Moses, "Moses, Sign who IS the Sign", "Moses, Miracle who IS Miracle." GOD wants us to know that HE IS THE SIGN & MIRACLE! HE IS! Man, He is such an awesome GOD. Even today He gives us a fresh knowing of His Word.
Which then brings me to the study of Aleph.
Aleph has the gematria of 1. HE is the only One. The Only Supreme GOD. Within Aleph itself we're given the Secret to the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
The letter Aleph is written with 2 Yods and 1 Vav. As we can see how Aleph is written we have 1 Yod above the Vav and 1 Yod below the Vav. The gematria shown is that Yod carries a value of 10, Vav 6. So (2 x 10) + 6 = 26. Which is equivalent to the gematria of GOD's name YHVH. WOW! GOD speaks even through the individual letter that He has created!
Let us see how the revelation of His Son is given through Aleph.
If we draw a horizontal line cutting across the middle of Aleph, we can see the separation of two realms. The divine which is Heaven and His Realm that's without end and the earthly realm where we are. The Yods above and below symbolises GOD's sovereign Hand touching Heaven and crossing over to our realm to touch us. But how? Through the Vav! Vav's gematria is 6, the number of man as man was created on the 6th day. So GOD has to transcend and descend from the Heavenly places through a Man to be with us! And Vav's pictogram is also a hook. So, we can see the lower part of the Vav in Aleph is hooked. GOD wants to be hooked with us and to us! Thank you Father GOD! You love us so much that you want to be hooked to us. So as You sent Your Son and Him being glorified on the cross, He has sent us the Helper in us! Wow! Awesome is our GOD, ain't HE? So now, we are One with Him.
The gematria of Yod is 10. It can be said that it represents our works, the Laws but it also represents GOD's Hands. Gematria of 1 and 0. Beginning and the End. The Alpha and the Omega. The Aleph and the Tav! As Jesus is with us from the Beginning to the End on Earth, He also will be with us in Heaven. Aleph, with the GOD-MAN from the Beginning to the End. Hallelujah! And as we can see, in Aleph, the Man/Vav is not orientated vertically like in the writing of the singular letter of, ו Vav. It is actually slanted to a diagonal, 45 degrees almost. The letter is struck down. The top or head of the Vav is actually pointing downwards to the earth. Prophetic in nature isn't it?
Isaiah 53:4 says,
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. (emphasis is added)
In Hebrew, stricken is נגוע Naga, meaning: violently, to strike (punish, defeat, destroy).
Our Lord was violently stricken, punished to be defeated and destroyed. Yet He rose again and defeated the evil one to give us our Victory. Hallelujah... We love you Lord Jesus.
And finally, the alphabet in Hebrew is known as the Aleph-Bet. And is contracted to be את Et.
In Genesis 1:1 the bible says,
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
Bereshit bara Elohim et shamayim eth herets. (emphasis added)
Literally, it means, "Beginning, created by God AlephTav(alphabet) then heaven and earth."
So, what is AlephTav or better yet who IS AlephTav?
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
And He is our Lord Jesus Christ, His name be Glorified upon all the earth above and below.
Amen & Hallelujah!
In awe of Your Majesty my Father, Your son,
