I Am The Aleph And The Tav: Part Two

((My apologies, WordPress has upgraded my website and I am totally lost as to how I should use it. I will not plead ignorance because I can prove it.))

Last week I told you about the coming occurrence of the what Todd Bennett refers to as the “Aleph Tav Eclipses”. It is also called the “Great American Eclipses”* Once again I will direct your attention to another site, that of Todd Bennett. His website https://www.shemayisrael.net/ is an excellent source of information about the subject I am talking about. Todd has many fine books and if what I am talking about sounds like Greek to you I highly recommend you consider buying the first book in his “Walk in the Light” series entitled Restoration. For born again Christians he has one entitled The Christian Conundrum which may help explain things better. I do like Restoration better myself.

((Please note that the name The Great American Eclipses” is the registered trademark of the Great American Eclipses, LLC. and I make no claim to this name whatsoever.))

This week I want to show you why the Aleph and the Tav are so notable and important to all believers in Yeshua (Jesus) Hamashiach (the Messiah). To do this I will try to give you a thumbnail understanding of the ancient Biblical Hebrew language. Here is the first test as to whether or not something is important, how many times does it occur, this case, in the Tanakh/Old Testament. God’s name in the Hebrew Bible is YHVH/יהוה is found 6,954 times in 5,899 Scriptures. That’s a lot. YHVH’s most common title in Hebrew is Elohim is found 2,365 times in 2,078 verses. Now, the word composed of Aleph and Tav (Strongs #H853) is found 7,302 times in 5,650 verses. Think about that for a moment and you will see that this is a very special word if it is mentioned more times than the Name of YHVH Himself. But how? Let me try to show you.

In the very first verse of Scripture Genesis/Bereshit you find the word, or should I say The Word, used twice: בְּרֵאשִׁית בָּרָא אֱלֹהִים | אֵת הַשָּׁמַיִם וְאֵת הָאָרֶץ If you look closely at the blue words you will see that Aleph Tav appears twice in the very first verse of Scripture when it talks about the Creation. ((If you want to try and figure out what is going on try reading John 1.)) IMPORTANT NOTE: Please remember Hebrew is read right to left and that the Hebrew shown here is modern block form Hebrew, not the paleo-Hebrew I showed you last week.

Let me say here that what I was taught 40+ years ago when I first began to study Biblical Hebrew is that according to many “scholars” the Aleph Tav is the definite article of the direct object in a Semitic language. ((That is the official line.)) Let me give you a classic Arabic example of what I am talking about: El Muamar El Qaddafi.((The name of the now dead dictator of Libya)) The El is the definite article that must accompany a noun in construct. It gets a lot more complicated than that but I just wanted to give an example. If it is not in construct you do not need the El’s. That is why Westerners don’t understand why Arabic names are not consistent.

Wait a minute, if Aleph Tav is the definite article of the direct object then every direct object should have one, right? Nope, not in Biblical Hebrew. Only certain direct objects have this particular definite article. So, what gives? The Aleph Tav is a prophetic marker of instances of prophecies of the Messiah. ((In my layman’s opinion.))

This is where I need to explain some of the Hebraic meanings behind the Aleph Tav. First the Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew word for Elohim so it can represent YHVH, it can also represent the beginning and the end since Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew Aleph Bet and Tav is the last letter of the Aleph Bet. Something you must consider is that paleo-Hebrew has 4 dimensions and, I will refer to this as 4-D Hebrew. What are those dimensions? First is Conventional (common script equals letters); Second, letter are pictures that convey meaning; Third, each letter has a numeric equivalent and Fourth, Hebrew is designed to be sung so the fourth dimension is music. For reference I will give you the paleo-Hebrew Aleph Bet:

Once again, just for reference let me include the numbering system:

Believe me, right now, you have more tools at your disposal than I had 40+ years ago. I am giving you all of this to show that I am not making this up. Also, please be mindful of all copyright marking. I am claiming nothing about what I am showing you unless it is something that I have developed, in which case it is open source.

Now, let’s put the Aleph and the Tav together and see what meanings they have:

  1. The First and the Last ((Represented by their position in the Aleph Bet))
  2. The Beginning and the End ((Ibid))
  3. YHVH’s Covenant with Man ((Through Abraham: Galations 3:8-29))
  4. Prophetic Marker ((For YHVH and Yeshua))
  5. Entirety ((Like we would say “From A to Z”))

So what does all of this mean? For one thing it shows I have not passed on many of the miracles that I have discovered in YHVH’s Word to you so that you could see them and share them. ((Something I need to work on.)) Next, that there is a cohesive plan from Beginning to End in the Scriptures and that by studying the Beginning we can better understand the End.

Isa 46:9  “Remember the former events of old, for I am Ěl, and there is no one else – Elohim, and there is no one like Me, 
Isa 46:10  declaring the end from the beginning, and from of old that which has not yet been done, saying, ‘My counsel does stand, and all My delight I do,’

Now, I have to tell you why all of this is important, right? If you are not familiar with the following articles please go back and read them to understand the relevance: https://codgerville.wordpress.com/2014/08/05/why-i-was-wrong-about-americas-destiny-part-one-the-curse/

https://codgerville.wordpress.com/2014/09/06/why-i-was-wrong-about-americas-destiny-part-iii-the-timeline/

This is where you begin in order to discover that there is a plan that stretches from Beginning to End. Please pay special attention to Part III. In it is the key to unlock the mystery of “From Beginning to End” and “The End From the Beginning” and, you will find it Highlighted in blue entitled The Jubilee Calendar from the Creation of Adam to Our Time. I developed this in the winter of 2012/13 to illustrate what it was that I was seeing repeated in Scripture. Since that time I found Charles Reed, now deceased and, Joe Dumond’s works on the same topic but, their work is in greater detail so, please don’t compare my meager understanding to theirs. But, here is the important part, all three of us agree on the following points: America entered into Judgement in 1996, the beginning of the last, 120th, Jubilee Cycle; we are midway through the 120th Cycle; this cycle ends Spring of 2024; Spring of 2024 begins the Cycle of Slavery. ((To understand this go back to the three articles above because it is shown in detail.)) Now, please go back and look at the final, of the three eclipses, that of April 08, 2024, which could very well be Month One of YHVH’s Calendar and see that it is laying the final stone of the foundation for judgement upon America. It is proclaiming that America has abandoned YHVH’s Covenant and will be dispersed/destroyed.

Gen 1:14  And Elohim said, “Let lights come to be in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night, and let them be for signs and appointed times, and for days and years, 
Gen 1:15  and let them be for lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light on the earth.” And it came to be so.

Luk 21:22  “Because these are days of vengeance, to fill all that have been written. 
Luk 21:23  “And woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing children in those days! For there shall be great distress in the earth and wrath upon this people. 
Luk 21:24  “And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and be led away captive into all nations. And Yerushalayim shall be trampled underfoot by the nations until the times of the nations are filled.
Luk 21:25  “And there shall be signs in the sun, and moon, and stars, and on the earth anxiety of nations, in bewilderment at the roaring of the sea, and agitation, 
Luk 21:26  men fainting from fear and the expectation of what is coming on the earth, for the powers of the heavens shall be shaken.

What “days of Vengeance”?

Lev 26:25  ‘And I shall bring against you a sword executing the vengeance of My covenant,((Author’s note: Aleph-Tav = Elohim’s Covenant)) and you shall gather together in your cities, and I shall send pestilence ((You know, a Pandemic)) among you, and you shall be given into the hand of the enemy.

The sad part of all of this is that the modern church has discarded YHVH”s Torah, or Word, and embraced the New Testament, B’rit Hadasha, and forgotten the Beginning and so they do not see the prophecies contained in Torah:

Mat 5:17  “Do not think that I came to destroy the Torah or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to complete.
Mat 5:18  “For truly, I say to you, till the heaven and the earth pass away, one yod or one tittle shall by no means pass from the Torah till all be done.

It is not all done yet folks. Ask yourself, Jesus said He did not come to do away with but to fulfill or complete and that the Torah would not pass away until Heaven and Earth pass away. Has Heaven passed away? Has Earth passed away since Yeshua was on Earth? If not, you need to get back to the Beginning (Aleph) so you can understand the End (Tav). You can’t separate the Aleph and the Tav because they are Yeshua.

Num 6:22  And יהוה spoke to Mosheh, saying, 
Num 6:23  “Speak to Aharon and his sons, saying, ‘This is how you bless the children of Yisra’ěl. Say to them: 
Num 6:24  “יהוה bless you and guard you; 
Num 6:25  יהוה make His face shine upon you, and show favour to you; 
Num 6:26  יהוה lift up His face upon you, and give you peace.” ’ 
Num 6:27  “Thus they shall put My Name on the children of Yisra’ěl, and I Myself shall bless them.” 

“And Your Highways Shall Be Empty”

In writing this article I will assume you are current with the information about the COVID-19 virus (coronavirus) sweeping across the planet. Here are my thoughts on the virus: this virus was engineered in the USAMRIID somewhere in the late 1990’s or early 2000. It was designer built to target people with an Asian heritage if and when China, et al, became a threat to the United States militarily or economically. Continue reading

“Come Out of Her My People”

9/11 anniversary in pictures: the attack on the World ...

Come Out of Her My People.

First, I want to apologize to everyone for taking so long to write another article and also that I am interrupting my series about YHVH’s Holy Days. I deem this article very important to the understanding of what the phrase “Come out of her my people” really means. As a self proclaimed expert, by virtue of the fact that I had it wrong for so many years, I want to help alleviate fear in some of you and maybe even instill some fear in others. Continue reading

Yes, I have used this artwork before but I think it is really neat.

I have started articles about the “Appointed Times” and promptly pigeonholed them or deleted them. All of them lacked something so, if you are reading this, rest assured I found the ‘something’. Continue reading

For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood! (Part VIII: – The Mountains of YHVH and What they Mean To You.)

It was not my plan to write another article in this series. I had actually thought about doing one just after I finished Part VII subtitled the Angel of YHVH but decided against it. One night while teaching about the various mountains and why it seemed that YHVH always focused on mountains, Jim S. (Big Muddy) said, “My head is going to explode. You need to write an article about this so we can refer back to it.” That was in early June of this summer (2017) and Von and I have been extremely busy ever since, and will be until the end of the year, and I put the thought out of my mind, or so I thought. It kept creeping back in and taunting me. So, we are going to talk about the mountains of Elohim, what they are and represent and also where they are. Hang on to your hats, it is going to get wild.

The Torah of Leprosy and what it means to You.

First, let me dispel a myth; Torah is not law but instruction. The plural of Torah is Torot. In Judaism the first five (5) books of the Bible are known as Torah but inside the pages there are many instructions for us to use to have a good, loving relationship with our Father/Creator.

For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood! (Part VI: The AntiChrist and The Mark)

****PLEASE NOTE: THIS ARTICLE WILL OFFEND SOME AND HELP OTHERS. FOR THOSE THAT ARE OFFENDED, IF YOU LEAVE A COMMENT I WILL POST IT IF YOU ARE RESPECTFUL OF EVERYONE ELSE AND DO NOT USE OBSCENITY OR INSULTING LANGUAGE.

**On the lighter side: I saw a bumper sticker during the second Clinton administration that read “If Bill Clinton is the answer it must have been a stupid question.” Please remember this as you go through this article and are given the tools to frame the question. Continue reading

For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood! (Part V: The Name and The Mark)

What is in a Name?

Have you ever researched your name? Or, have you researched your family name? Names can be funny in their origins, or practical or based on some new technology of their day. Take for instance the invention of the English longbow. It changed the history of warfare and the political geography of Europe in the 11th century. Look at some of the names that evolved from that technology: Archer, Bowman, Stringer, Fletcher, Knox, Shafter, Pointer, to name a few, but you get the idea. Can you imagine what would happen if technology of the 21st century was used for the same purpose? You would have family names of Blog, Tweet, Chat, Facebook or Facetime, or maybe Apple, Dos, Unix, or Pinterest. Well, maybe not. Continue reading

For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood! (Part IV: The Stargates)

I am quite sure that most people, when researching a biblical topic, do not expect to encounter one subtitled “The Stargates” but nevertheless it needs to be discussed because if no one teaches about it then Hasatan can use the existence of it to deceive and mislead. Let’s take a look at what people think a stargate looks like. Continue reading

For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood! (Part III: The Purpose)

Immediately when I write “The Purpose” I think about all the various possibilities that it might include. It will be the most difficult to “quantify”. The most obvious purpose is; Why this series of articles” Continue reading

For We Wrestle Not Against Flesh and Blood! (Part II: The Background)

If I make a statement and do not offer any historical proof you would do well to not believe my statement. In this article I will attempt to show you Biblical proof of the angels, their work and purpose. I must be careful because I believe that the next article may involve the purpose of the angels and quite possibly the role of Yeshua in advancing the Kingdom of Elohim (God). Continue reading

Why ISIS? Why Now?

I think most people understand that radical Islam is pretty p.o.’d at America. Over 30 years ago I tried to explain to my father, a WWII veteran, why the rest of the world called us “The Great Satan” but he could not understand it. But, here is the truth of the situation; America has always manufactured the next threat to “freedom” in America and for that matter the rest of the world. Continue reading

The Sabbatical Year Garden

I realize that there are some of you that are tired of hearing about the sabbatical year. Too bad! I love it. By my reckoning I am now in the 20th day of the 3rd month of the sabbatical year of the 3rd sabbatical cycle of the 119th Jubilee cycle. ((Yes, I know there are varying opinions on this but I did the math.) So, if we are in a sabbatical year what kind of garden do I have? To answer that: one that grows on its own. A garden without planting, fertilizing, cultivation, etc. Everything in it volunteered from last year’s produce. {Lev. 25:18-19} You can eat what grows of itself or on its own but you do not harvest. You take just enough for your daily needs. Continue reading

It Really is This Simple.

((Please read this in its entirety and then all of you tell me what it is about. What verse, chapter, book or part of the Bible that is referred to by this very simple play. I apologize for its simplicity but I hope that you enjoy it.))

Narrator: Mr. ben-Abraham is a successful farmer in Israel and has 3 sons and only one daughter, Dinah. In the nearby village lives Mr. ben-David, who is a respected merchant. Mr. ben-David has only one son remaining at home, Yehoshua (Joshua). Joshua is two years older than Dinah but has been in love with her from afar for more than just a few years. Oftentimes, when Dinah and her mother and aunts come to town Joshua would step out into the street from his father’s shop to greet the ladies as they walked past and inquire whether or not they needed anything or any help with their bundles and packages. Now, Joshua goes to his father and presents his proposal for a marriage. Continue reading

Welcome to the Sabbatical Year of Earthquakes, Pestilences and Famines!

Prepping for the Sabbatical Year: As if you needed one more reason to prep.

(((I want to dedicate this article to Brandon, Shellie, Kathy, Philip and Nadia who have asked great questions about preparing for the Sabbatical Year. Also, I dedicate it to my little sister in the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) Sandra, whose efforts and excitement in preparing for the coming sabbatical year border on “awesome”.))) Continue reading

The Covenant Made With Many…It Is Not What You were Taught or Thought!

Most people in the Western world are not familiar with the idea of a covenant. There are several types of covenants but the two most common in the area now encompassing the Middle East are the salt and blood covenants. Salt is an acceptable substitute for blood and is therefore considered by many to be one in the same as a blood covenant. We see that the powerful covenant made with King David , forever, was made by means of a covenant of salt (2 Chronicles 13:5) Continue reading

Daniel’s Cycle of Time. (It was never a timeline!)

It has taken me much longer to write this follow-up to the earlier post about fleeing Babylon but I have been extremely busy. For an unknown reason Von has lost the use of her right leg and we camped out at the emergency room/hospital for a few days. We are now home but we still do not know the cause of the problem, although I suspect HaSatan is involved, and we do not know a solution other than to go to the Father in prayer and ask for His Healing. So with that being said, I want to give you an explanation of what the cycle of time is and is not, that I attached to the previous article. Continue reading

Is it Time to Flee Babylon?
