The First Verse of the Scripture is quite telling…
There are 7 Words in the First Verse!
The number 7 has to do with the Perfect Plan of יהוה.
It is important to understand that the את points to the Messiah throughout the Scripture…He is the Living Word (Alef thru Taw), the First and the Last, the Beginning and End.
The prophet Yashayahu (Isaiah) has told us that “יהוה has declared the end from the beginning” (Isaiah 46:10).
Yahuchanan (John) stated:
“In the beginning was the Word (את), and the Word (את) was with Elohim, and the Word (את) was Elohim. He was in the beginning with Elohim. All came to be through Him, and without Him not even one came to be that came to be.” ~John 1:1-3
“And the Word (את) became flesh and pitched His tent among us, and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought forth of the Father, complete in favour and truth.” ~John 1:14
In the Hebrew Scripture we definitely see the Word (את) in the beginning!
“יהוה has declared the end from the beginning”
The First Verse is a Prophecy!!!
“But, beloved ones, let not this one matter be hidden from you: that with יהוה one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” ~2 Peter 3:8
Notice that the (את) is the 4th Word in The First Verse.
The numbers 4, 40, 400, and 4000 all point to Messiah!
The 4th Letter of the Hebrew Alephbet is a Daleth.
Daleth = 4
Daleth = Door
Interestingly enough the 4th child of Yisrael was Yahudah!
Yahudah is the tribe (the door) the Messiah would come through!
Messiah יהושע (Yahusha) is the Door that we Must Enter (See John chapters 10 & 14)
On the 4th Day of Creation, light was given to shine upon the earth…
In the 4th Millennial Day, Messiah was born (as the light of the world) to give light to men…
The Hebrew Letter Mem = 40
Mem = water
Women are pregnant for 40 weeks…which links to one of the first prophecies of Messiah found in Genesis 3:15:
“And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed. He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.”
Messiah began His ministry with 40 days of fasting and ended His ministry with 40 days of teaching about the Kingdom of Elohim.
“And He said to Abram, “Know for certain that your seed are to be sojourners in a land that is not theirs, and shall serve them, and they shall afflict them four hundred years.” ~Genesis 15:13
“For I do not wish you to be ignorant, brothers, that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea, and all were immersed into Mosheh in the cloud and in the sea, and all ate the same spiritual food, and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed, and the Rock was Messiah.” ~1 Corinthians 10:1-4
“יהוה is a man of battle, יהוה is His Name.” ~Exodus 15:3
“Your right hand, O יהוה, has become great in power. Your right hand, O יהוה, has crushed the enemy.” ~Genesis 15:6
Number 4,000 ties into the 4th Millennial Day…Messiah was born (came into the flesh) at the end of the 4th Millennial…
We see the (את) appear the first time in the 4th Word of The First Verse.
What’s quite amazing…the (את) appears a second time in the 6th Word of The First Verse.
The second appearance of the (את) is attached to a Waw. Waw = nail.
The (את) is positioned between “the heavens” the 5th Word of The First Verse and “the earth” the 7th Word of The First Verse.
Messiah יהושע (Yahusha), who is the (את) will appear a second time (with nail pierced hands) at the conclusion of the 6th Millenial Day… coming from “the heavens” to “the earth” in the 7th (Sabbath) Millenial Day to give Rest to the Remnant and to Set Up His Kingdom which will have no end…..
