Come Wonder With Us about the three Fathers and the Four Mothers

Did you ever wonder? Did you ever wonder?

I do. Did you ever wonder? Why the sun always rises, but the stars never fall?

Why dry land is never satisfied by water? And why fire never says enough? The wonder of the Hebrew letter Shin. Of course, you know, I would have to say if you're, the whole study of Hebrew letters to me is more than fascinating is it is literally the building blocks of the language that God speaks. And, you know, when you think about how cool it is that he spoke everything to existence, and then we are made in his image and able to speak. And these letters are the building blocks of so much of what we understand that's been complicated through, obviously, generations of corruption, but and especially at Babylon, but we can get back to it now through the technology that we have, like you can find so much information.

It's unbelievable. And so this morning I was on my project of translating the Gospel of John back into Hebrew. And just as a study for me to see the Gospel of John, especially the first chapter is what I feel like is my project that I'm working on, that God gave me, that I would be able to feel this in beautiful ways through the Hebrew language. And I was working on the word being sent, and the word sent, interestingly, begins with the letter Shin. And then it has a lamed, as does the word shalom.

You can actually hear the S sound and the L sound in both shalom and the idea of shalah, which is to be sent. And, you know, when you study that word, you'll naturally go to the first place and you'll get to the first place. That you'll find it in the Bible, which is Noah sent this dove out of the ark. Oh, actually, the first place you'll find it is God sent Noah out of the garden.

But I love where he sent the dove out of the ark. There's so much to be learned there. But today I just wanted to talk for a minute about this whole idea of the letter Shin. And so as I was trying to see why this word would start with this letter, what was I needing to understand? I went back and studied.

The Shin again and saw something that I really hadn't contemplated before. And all Hebrew letters, and this is where, you know, where I landed, all Hebrew letters are made of other Hebrew letters. It's kind of a beautiful thing that, you know, all of them are come from, for the most part, yuds and voves.

Okay. And the letter yud is just that little bitty dot that when you first put your pen to the page as the 10th letter of the Hebrew alphabet and the others are mostly voves. Which is the sixth letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which is just a straight letter down. Well, the letter Shin is made up of four yuds and three voves. And obviously that comes to seven, which is significant when it comes to the number Shalom in all sorts of ways of the letter Shin. The three voves is a male energy.

It's coming down. It's sort of like Jacob's ladder, but it's a building block of the letter Het, which is the second letter in the word sent. But it very much is this idea of Jesus bringing light down to us, however that looks. That's what it looks like.

Okay. And the Jews have long taught that the three voves and the letter Shin represent the three fathers, obviously Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. And so interestingly, they say Jacob is that center.

When you look at a shin, excuse me, it looks like a flame and it's very symmetrical. And so when you look at that center line, that's made up of the three lines with the yuds on top of each and the yud is at the bottom. And so those four yuds represent the four mothers, which, you know, are obviously Sarah and Rebecca and Rachel and Leah.

And so, or Leah and Rachel, depending on how you want to put the order. It's kind of neat when you think about which yud is which. Well, the hidden yud is, we know Leah is hidden.

The hidden yud is the one at the very bottom where the other yuds are very obvious up at the top. And so when you think about it, it's kind of cool to think that the one mother really is represented by two in that the idea is that Rachel and Leah were twins in two different halves of the same coin. The words flip and with the inner idea being that of Leah and the outer idea of Rachel. And so it's kind of neat when you think about that center fire, that center flame coming out of the letter shin would be represented by both sisters at the yud at the bottom and the yud at the top.

It's kind of neat to think about. And, you know, you might wonder, well, you know, here is this building block of the word shalom. Here is this building block of this letter that is in the word Jesus. It's in the word Israel.

When you hear Yeshua, that S sound, when you hear Israel, you know, that is that you can hear the shin. In other words, this is a very, very significant letter. And there's no better way to understand the letter, in my opinion, go to 119 Psalm and study the shin section. All eight verses give you a tremendous understanding on the letter.

But it just seems fascinating to me that I keep studying and studying and going, how does this have to do with being sent? And when you think about it, every one of the children of Israel, that would include you and me, since we were bought with the precious blood of Christ, who is very much a Jew. And so we have royal blood, which is that of what?

The three fathers and the four mothers. And we are as sent as we can be, John the Baptist. And when you think about what Noah did, he sent, you know, a dove out of it, which is obviously represented in so many different ways by the Holy Spirit.

He sent this dove out. The second one came back with an olive leaf in its mouth. And that idea of a leaf is almost like a sacrifice.

The word actually for Holocaust or burnt sacrifice is the same word as leaf. And the idea is that both go up. They always go up, as does the flame of the shin. And so when you think about here is this burning of these mothers, what are mothers always wanting? They're always wanting their kids to come home.

I'm just telling you, they just do. That idea of sent is very much that way. And the fathers, what do they want? They want their sons to make an impact on the world.

And so they got to send them out in order for that to go on. Those are just some random thoughts on my mind. But this weekend I had just a blessed opportunity. God just gives me so many neat things, projects that I get to take part in. And I went to a car show in Atlanta at the most unbelievable church, the Sweetwater Baptist Church. They're in Douglasville, Georgia, where they're Pastor Darrell and they have a cast of characters that are like to meet Jesus.

I'm just saying in so many different ways. And even one funny story was there's a man there. I think his name is Lynn. I probably am saying it wrong, but he was a sergeant major. And when I was I was watching him, he walked up to this older lady who'd come back from surgery.

And he said, you just need to drop and give me 20. And he said it in such a delightful way. It's just the kind of, you know, the family that's there. And I had a chance to share with them and they had a chance to share with me. But when you see, you know, God in a church like, you know, you're far away from home and you're meeting all these people that are coming back.

That's actually the sixth year I've had a chance to be able to do that. And of course, I feel sent like God sent me there. And then I got to come home with an olive leaf. And the idea of olive, it starts with the letter Zion. OK. And that letter Zion is like you have received the light from Jesus and now you are reflecting it back.

It's a female energy. And the idea of the olive is it's very bright. It has to do with your anointing. And so it's interesting to me that as you go forth on the different places that God sends you, that he anoints you with the shine that, you know, people see and they just seem to love. I know that what they really loved was Christ. They love that shine of that olive leaf that was in my mouth.

But it's offering back to God like, oh, my gosh, what an opportunity he gave me. And I got to experience it and I got to experience another family. I've got another family like that at Peace Church in Durham.

And of course, all the families that I have here in this area and my church in Ashboro, North Carolina. And of course, there's just all sorts of different places that I get to go. And, you know, he just sends you and then you come back with that olive leaf in your mouth.

And you come home, right, to your mothers and of course, your fathers and all these different people that love you. It's just an absolutely beautiful thought. And that idea, again, of being sent. What a glorious thing that we all have the opportunity to be sent. Where's God sending you today? It's the letter Shin.

It also just happens to sound like an S. Thanks for listening. Did you ever render? Did you ever render? I do. I do.
