The Bible Names Of God and The Alef-Beis

What God has revealed in His Word about Himself
and the impact that has upon the crown of His creation

In the beginning--before language, ”God said.” Before language God gave Adam to name things.Gen.1: 19-20 God would have us to know that “name” reflects and corresponds to the distinct characteristics, role and purpose of that which has is named. Letters and their combinations with all their import precede language. The combination of letters is far more than the facilitation of words for language. After much history and language God gave the Torah, also called “The Law; the first five books of Scripture; and He gave it in Hebrew. The Hebrew alphabet, alef-beis, is more than strokes and sounds that make mere words. Each letter is mulit faceted; having six functional characteristics and a seventh that is foundational. Every letter has its efficacy and significance.

For some this thought, this concept is a flying leap. I understand. Here is the grounding, the sound logic, the, II Timothy 2:15b, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, on the matter. With no explanation of language or letters, Genesis 1 records, in the beginning Elohim said (see Utterance). Hebrews 11:3 tells us the worlds framed by the Word of God. Psalm 33:6, By the word of Yahweh were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of His mouth. II Peter 3:5b, by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Hebrews 1:3 tells us the Son is "upholding all things by the Word of His power..." Psalm 147:4, He telleth the number of the stars; He calleth them all by their names. We see God demonstrate for us to emulate, the process from thought to utterance of speech and name or naming which which requires language. In both the cosmos and in man God gives us strokes and patterns of written language. So that, The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth His handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard. Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world, Psalm 19:1-3.

In Biblical Hebrew, every letter has a form and a sound that reflect the energy patterns it carries as it and its other letters combine in their endless alliances and formations that generate all the objects and events of all the worlds. The jot of Matthew 5:18 is the yud.

Each letter begins with the spike of the letter yud -- because each draws its energy from the unknowable, essential point of all being. Each has lines that draw energy downward and outward – from Yud. Letters are packets of energy to bring the infinite light into contained, finite places. Each either contains semblances of other letters within it, or is found within other letters -- because all the letters work in a magnificent symphony of harmony and interrelationships.

The Name of God JAH  Psalm  68:4 is the yud.

In the beginning--before language, ”God said.” Before language God gave Adam to name things, Gen.1: 19 God would have us to know that “name” reflects and corresponds to the distinct characteristics, role and purpose of that which has is named. Letters and their combinations with all their import precede language. The combination of letters is far more than the facilitation of words for language. After much history and language God gave the Torah, also called “The Law; the first five books of Scripture; and He gave it in Hebrew.

The Hebrew alphabet, alef-beis, is more than strokes and sounds that make mere words. I Corinthians tells us there is no sound without signifance. This is even more so of the dots and strokes of the alef beis, the Hebrew alphabet. Just as the voice of Yahweh can be thunderous and make the mountains shake or be still and small, Each letter is mulit faceted; having functional characteristics and foundational seventh which signifies power and effect. Every letter has its efficacy and significance.

  1. Design—the specific way each letter is formed. This form represents God life/energy within each letter. The strokes that make the form have meaning.
  2. Gematria—each of the letters of the alef-beis represents a certain number, e.g., alef = 1, beis = 2, etc. Though man uses and misuses gematria, the origin is The LORD's (as in Rev.15:2)
  3. Meaning—each letter has many meanings, e.g., the letter alef stands for chief, to learn, wondrous, and much more. Beis means house, etc.
  4. 4)Nekudos (vowels)—most letters have a vowel . which gives the sound of how it is to be pronounced.
  5. 5) Crowns—some letters in the Torah have crowns—little lines drawn on the top of Hebrew letters—which add strength to the letters, and each crown has its particular meaning.
  6. Cantillation—each word in the Torah has a musical note.
  7. Light— Psalm 119:30 The entrance of Thy Words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple
Below is a chart of the Hebrew "alphabet," the alef beis, When following, remember, Hebrew reads from right to left and consist only of consonants. A nukedos, vowel chart, is given on the bottom. At the top right of each letter is the valuation of that letter—the gematria. At the bottom center of each letter is it's name. A is alef, B is beis and so on. They do not correspond exactly to the Roman alphabet, but roughly enough that you can follow and learn them.
