Aleph Tav - Herald of Messiah

Aleph Tav

This manuscript study shares some exciting “findings” in Scripture about the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, the Aleph and Tav. They are shown here in the modern Hebrew script.

Each letter in Hebrew has a unique meaning. The letters Aleph and Tav אֵת literally give their meaning as "the strength of the covenant".

The key to understanding Aleph Tav as the strength of the covenant is to consider that God gives His teaching and instruction from Heaven for living on earth because He loves us .

Every word, every jot and tittle of the book of יהוה is important.

You will learn about the significance of the letters Aleph Tav and why they provide The Herald of Messiah throughout the Bible.

The Aleph Tav study considers the Hebrew text as the source code of the Bible. The picto-graphic meaning of the scrolls have been hidden because English or other translations do not portray the original graphic meanings of Hebrew, so we can learn a lot more if we will look back to the original language.

The letters Aleph Tav begin their story in the very first verse of the Bible, yet they are not known to millions of modern day readers of the Bible that use translations of the Hebrew Scriptures, so it is time that they be seen because the אֵת serve the Word of God like two witnesses of Messiah some 7,000 times throughout the Torah, the Prophets and the Writings.

Ancient Hebrew fragments of the Torah were found among the Dead Sea Scrolls.

The original pictographic Hebrew script used by the Hebrew people before the exile to Babylon is a real eye opener and reveals much more about the depth and meaning of each Hebrew letter and word.

This study may show why we all need to learn as much as we can about the Hebrew language, the language of the Hebrew Bible. The Same Bible Jesus read.

Doing so will help us better understand each word found in the Scriptures that have been given to us by our Creator as our instruction manual for living.

Except for faithful Jewish people, most of the rest of us have only seen or read translations of the Bible that are from translations of translations. That presents a problem. In fact, most any English Bibles are translated from the "Greek" Septuagint which were taken from "Hebrew" manuscripts over 2,000 years ago. Due to translation “babel” from Hebrew to Greek, there is much to re-learn about God's word and The Herald of Messiah.

Like the old saying, “lost in the translation”, the Aleph Tav has been literally lost in translation, so one goal of this study is to put an end to that and to show the Aleph Tav as an infinite sign, “the word” that is waiting to be re-discovered.

This is important because the Aleph Tav allows the Messiah to be “seen“ throughout all the “Word” of God. Many Bible students may be familiar with the “Greek” counterparts of Aleph and Tav as the Alpha and Omega we understand these only to illustrate a picture of the “beginning” and the “end,” but there is much more to be seen in the ancient, graphic meaning of the ancient Aleph Tav, the first and last letters of the Hebrew "aleph-bet".

It is important to learn as much as we can about the Hebrew language to better understand the voice of God in Scripture and that is what this study addresses as it shows The Herald of Messiah from the beginning to the end of the Bible.

There is no idle word in Scripture and these two letters are never seen except in Hebrew Bibles. They have been “hidden” there hidden within the Hebrew scrolls for too long, so it is time to see the two witnesses... אֵת

בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ

Unless you can read the Bible in its native Hebrew language, you might think of the Aleph Tav like a computer’s program “source code” which is hidden and not seen.

 Yet behind the scene, the code gives a computer its purpose and provides the user with the instruction needed to complete the task. Likewise, the Aleph Tav does this within the Hebrew Scriptures. For a 'code' sampling, consider the place called Etham. It is the second named location that Moses and Israel were led by the Pillar of Fire.

There at Etham they entered the wilderness. In Hebrew, Etham is Aleph Tav Mem אתם .

In Hebrew, each letter provides a graphic sign, ultimately composing the word meaning from the letters. Aleph א = strength, Tav ת = covenant and Mem ם = rushing water. So, what really happened at Etham? The word tells the story as the "strength" of "covenant" as "water rushed."

That is the hidden story, the source code of the Hebrew word Etham, the exodus is marked by the Red Sea crossing. It's not just any word, each word, each letter, each stroke of the Torah scribe's pen has great significance from beginning to end in the teaching of God. This study will shed some light on the source “code” of the Bible because Moses wrote of Messiah:
Luke 24:27 And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

John 5:46 For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.
Aleph Tav is like a code which points as The Herald of Messiah [the strength of the covenant] throughout the Word of God.

To begin your journey just download the study and share it freely at no cost because the only copyright here is your right to copy. And be sure to come back and visit this page from time to time since the study may be updated form time to time with new discoveries from the Word of God.

And feel free to write if you have a message about the Aleph Tav that should be added to the teaching as others have.

What does this all mean?

It means that it is now time for you to repent and return to God's covenant, return to hear and do His word and walk in the faith of His Kingdom path so that you can ready your lamp for your coming assignment. God is a sovereign God. He is a loving and He has provided a way to offer you His salvation, it is seen throughout the Bible. You can accept His gift of life. Consider carefully what your life consists of, look at it and repent of your sin, ask His forgiveness and accept His gift of love through Messiah Yeshua. Do it now!

IMPORTANT UPDATE: I am very excited to let you know that new Hebrew Bible publications have just been complied. The first is from Pastor Greg Riether of Healing Grace Ministries in Tulsa Oklahoma. I got mine in the mail and you can also order a copy of "The Aleph-Tav Bible".

The ancient Paleo Hebrew can be viewed and used online at The HTML Bible, a parallel Hebrew Old Testament by John Hurt.

The Aleph Tav can also be seen in a more extensive Bible publication titled The Messianic Aleph Tav Scriptures from Bill Sanford. This edition has several of Bill's own excellent commentaries. Mr. Sanford kindly wrote to me a few months prior to its publication to let me know about this important study Bible after viewing this study.

I have purchased a copy of both editions of the Bible that restore the Aleph Tav from the Hebrew word of God. They are wonderful, but don't keep them on your bookshelf!

Read them, study them, and like Pastor Riether says:

"Come on a journey and see the Old Testament in a way that you’ve never seen it before; the way it was meant to be seen. The Aleph Tav Old Testament; Jesus on every page of the Bible."
