A few weeks ago I had a dream. In this dream, It was night and I was standing outside. I looked up into the night sky and in some strange way, I was able to see beyond the skies. I stared in awe as I watched Hebrew letters floating around in the universe. As quickly as I saw it was as quickly as the dream ended. Supernaturally, I understood the meaning of what I was allowed to see.
There are twenty two (22) letters in the Hebrew Alephbet (Alphabet), beginning with Aleph א and ending with Tau or Tav ת. Every letter has a meaning, as well as a pictorial and a numerical value attached to it. The Aleph for example has a numerical value of 1 and the picture associated with the Aleph is the Ox. It means, strong, leader, power and yoke, and it also speaks to oneness. It is often used to speak of God as Head, Leader and Father and it also speaks to His oneness. The Tav has a numeric value of 400, which is pictured by crossed sticks which mean sign, seal and covenant.
In Hebrew, letters are the essence of the word they form. One word can tell an entire story! It is for this very reason that names in the Bible were so deeply connected to to the individual's destiny. God renamed Avram, Avraham because he would become "Father of a multitude, many nations". (See Genesis 17:5)
With that said, what was the meaning of my dream?
In Genesis 1:3 we read: And God said "let there be light", and there was light. God created reality from the spoken words; the combination of Hebrew letters. These Hebrew letters are the building blocks of the universe. They are the atoms, molecules and the mathematical formula that make up all created things. Not only are the Hebrew letters the building blocks, but they hold everything together. Interestingly, the Jewish Sages and Rabbis teach/hold this view but until my dream, I was not aware.
So, Scripture teaches us that the universe was created by the spoken word of God. However, we also know that the "Word took on flesh and dwelt among us" (John 1:14). With that said, Let's take a look at the Living Word or the Living Torah - Messiah Yeshua (Jesus)
The Apostle John says of Yeshua "In the beginning was the Word, and the word was with God, and the Word was God. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made". (John 1:1-2 NIV). According to the Apostle Paul, "He (Yeshua) existed before anything else and he holds all creation together" (Colossians 1:17 NTL). Finally, in Rev 1:8, Yeshua himself declared "I am the Aleph and the Tav..." or the "Alpha and the Omega" in Greek; the first (letter) and the last (letter), the beginning and the end.
Yeshua is the Living Word, by and through whom all things were created. Not only that, it is He who holds all things together. It is he who came in the strength and power of the Father (Aleph) to seal the Covenant (Tav). Actually every Hebrew letter points to Him! At this time, our finite minds may struggle to understand it fully but when Messiah returns, He will teach us all things.
The Hebrew language is deep and supernatural. Not only is it the DNA of all creation but it is the language that will be spoken by all men one day to come. What happened at Babel will be reversed and the holy language will be restored. This is the promise of God:
"For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent' (Zephaniah 3:9)
