The Aleph and Tav תא within the Torah
A couple of years ago I picked up some study while scrolling about the Hebrew letters of the Aleph and the Tav. I surprisingly found this and made with my graphic skill this beautiful card. The middle carrier of the Menorah holds the seven candle arms, so it carries the 7 words of the creation of the first line of the Bereshit in which one word is not translated, the ET – Aleph Tav. The middle candle is the figure of Y’shua or Jesus, the creator of heavens and the earth.
Isaiah 44:6 “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God. It is His signature we know as “the first and the last, the beginning and the end.” Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”
For example, the very first verse in the Bible in Genesis 1:1 this is mostly translated as:
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
בְּרֵאשִׁית, בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים, אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם, וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ
Bereshit bara Elohim ET hasmaym w’et ha-Eretz
In red in the middle; when God was referred to, Elohim et, aleph tav (תא) was followed behind, and was untranslated. It cannot be easily translated because it is like having the letters A and Z combined in the middle of the sentence.
Jesus proclaimed in Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End,” says the Lord, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” (The Aleph and Tav תא)
In Revelation1:11 saying, “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.” (The Aleph and Tav תא)
In Revelation 21:6 He said to me, “It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. I will give of the fountain of the water of life freely to him who thirsts. (The Aleph and Tav תא)
Revelation 22:13“I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.” (The Aleph and Tav תא)
Adonai Yeshua is the Aleph and Tav תא found within the Torah. By seeing the Aleph and the Tav we know that these are Yeshua words. Yeshua said in John 5:46 “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me.(We see the Aleph and Tav תא also validating this as Yeshua’s words found within The Law of Moses, but Jesus was the end of the law. But brought the new Law of the Spirit in Romans 8)
Here is a very telling of the use of the Aleph and the Tav found in Deuteronomy 6:5. The Aleph and the Tav תא are pointing to YHWH Yahweh
וְאָהַבְתָּ, אֵת יְהוָה אֱלֹהֶיךָ, בְּכָל-לְבָבְךָ וּבְכָל-נַפְשְׁךָ, וּבְכָל-מְאֹדֶךָ
Deuteronomy 6:5 And thou shalt love (תא) the LORD (YHWH) thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might
Now here is the use of the Aleph and Tav תא that will blow you away from Zechariah 12:10
Zechariah 12:10 “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon (תא) me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.” Masoretic text Zechariah 12:10
י וְשָׁפַכְתִּי עַל-בֵּית דָּוִיד וְעַל יוֹשֵׁב יְרוּשָׁלִַם, רוּחַ חֵן וְתַחֲנוּנִים, וְהִבִּיטוּ אֵלַי, אֵת אֲשֶׁר-דָּקָרוּ; וְסָפְדוּ עָלָיו, כְּמִסְפֵּד עַל-הַיָּחִיד, וְהָמֵר עָלָיו, כְּהָמֵר עַל-הַבְּכוֹר.
“and they shall look upon (see what the Aleph and Tav is pointing at תא) me whom they have pierced”
This is a picture of the Messiah of Israel who is pierced for our transgressions, the Aleph and the Tav points תאà to the Messiah of Israel, Adonai Yeshua.
In Revelation we read Yeshua is calling Himself, “the pierced one” and also the aleph and the tav. The alpha and omega.
From Revelation 1:7 Behold, He is coming with clouds, and every eye will see Him, even they who pierced Him. And all the tribes of the earth will mourn because of Him. Even so, Amen.
Jesus is the only prophet of God who claimed to be the Aleph and the Tav, the beginning and the end, the alpha and the omega of our salvation.
