The Hebrew Alphabet

Study #11: AYIN
Lesson 2969. The Hebrew Alphabet.
AYIN: THE 16TH LETTER OF THE HEBREW ALPHABET
WHAT A DIFFERENCE AN AYIN MAKES! (Part 2)
Yesterday we discovered how BRIT and IVRIT are related.
Today we focus on their common ending letter: TAV the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet written as a T in English.
TAV is the sign of the Covenant (BRIT) which in ancient Paleo Hebrew is uncannily written in the shape of the Cross.
For us in the New Testament, the cross of TAV makes prophetic sense as the ultimate symbol of our Covenant relationship with God.
For without the shedding of Jesus’ Blood at the Cross, there is no remission for sin.
“In fact under the Law almost everything is purified by means of blood, and without the shedding of blood there is neither release from sin and its guilt nor the remission of the due and merited punishment for sins.”
In the Hebrew version of the Book of Revelation, our Risen Messiah made this astounding proclamation about Himself in Revelation 1:8
“I am the Aleph א and the Tav ת, the beginning and the ending, says YAHUAH ELOHIYM, who is, and who was, and who is to come, YAHUAH TSEVA’OT.”
Abba Father, open our eyes to see (apprehend) and to understand (comprehend) what Jesus meant when He said He is the ALEF TAV of the World (The Cross of God). Indeed He is the First and Last Word in all our lives.
