I recently came across something in a video from Rock Island Books on YouTube, and later found elsewhere here and I’m sure there are other places, that I hadn’t ever heard before that I think fits well here as we transition to looking at the Son, Yeshua. YAHWEH, which is YHVH in Hebrew, or יְהוָֹה and is also translated at LORD or Jehovah is the proper name of God, also called the Tetragrammaton. It’s commonly accepted meaning is the existing One.
What is fascinating is that all Hebrew letters have names and meanings and numbers associated with them. It is also a pictographic language such that the original shapes also coincided with the letter’s meaning. We get our term alphabet from the first and second letters of the Hebrew alphabet, Aleph (א) Beth (ב ).
י Yod (Yud) – denotes the hand/arm, typically not as outstretched, but rather as holding something or being a fist.
As Israel was in the wilderness, their tabernacle’s walls and framework were held together with hooks, supporting the structure. It was this support that then held the veil that separated the Holy of Holies, where the presense of God dwelt, from the Holy Place, the tabernacle and the people of Israel camped about it.
Recall also that Israel had just come out of Egypt, where the first Passover happened and the blood of the lamb was placed on the door of the houses of the Israelites so the angel of death would pass over the house and not take the first born son of the house.
Yeshua is the door and as stated in John 14:6,7 He is the only way to the Father. If you did not already catch it above, the Hebrew name of God that they don’t say today, yet is published for all time in the Torah, has 4 letters that individually mean behold the hand/arm, behold the nail/peg/hook!
Yeshua is the door through which we find salvation and a return to communion with the Father through the atoning blood of Christ. He is the Lamb of God who took away the sins of the world and sacrificed Himself, spilling His innocent blood so that we might live.
Furthermore, He hung on a tree by nails as the veil hung in the temple as a door separating the people from the presence of God. When it was finished and He gave up the ghost, the door of separation from God in the temple was ripped in two from top to bottom. I believe this both signified that the new door was the only one now needed to enter into God’s presence and also that God’s presence would no longer reside in the temple, it was finished.
