Be in Total Peace!

The Hebrew word "shalom" has meaning that is deep and rich. Peace, completeness, prosperity, safety, contentment, health, blessing, and rest are all apportioned to the meaning of this remarkable word..

Leave it all behind!

The modern Hebrew word for repent is ‘shoov, spelled "sheen"-"beit" ("vet", the secondary form of "beit") In ancient Hebrew script the letter "sheen" is represented by teeth and means "to destroy". The "beit" in Hebrew represents a tent or a house. So a literal reading of "sheen"-"beit" would be "to destroy the house"!

Yesterday, we began identifying the ancient Hebrew alphabet and exploring the potential symbolic meanings of its letters. The last letter, "Tav", as we saw, strongly resembles a cross. Today, we’re going to look at how "Tav" is spelled in ancient Hebrew. The phonetic spelling of "Tav" is Tav (T)-Vav (V).

Do you know the Father's Love?

As we continue our studies in Ancient Hebrew word pictures, let's look at the symbols representing the word "Father". The letters which compose this word are "aleph" and "beit". The "aleph" was originally illustrated as an ox head, which denotes strength, power and a leader. "Beit" is the second letter in the Hebrew alphabet, and its ancient symbol represents a tent and illustrates a home, dwelling, and family. So the ancient word for "Father", "Av" literally describes the leader of the house, or the leader of the family.
