YHVH, The King (ALEPH)


Aleph is the first and master letter of the Hebrew language representing G-d as One, the Creator and King.  “Hear, O Israel: the L-RD our God, the L-RD is one” (Deuteronomy 6:4).  Blessed be His name whose glorious kingdom is forever and ever.

The jeweled crown over the Ten Commandments depicts the tribal stones of the twelve tribes of Israel, who at the end of time will regather all nations to G-d through their witness of the King (Genesis 49, Isaiah 44:6, Revelation 7).

The Ten Commandments in the midst of the throne is a "type and shadow" of Messiah's seat of authority. The spiritual reality is that He is seated upon the mercy seat of the Ark of the Covenant (Psalm 97:1-2).

The seven-branch Menorah, made out of one piece of beaten gold, shows His consummate knowledge of past, present and future (Isaiah 11:2, Revelation 5:6).  The middle branch is called the Shammash (the Servant) whose function is the serve and light the other candlesticks (Isaiah 11:1-7, Revelation 5:6). The Aleph/Tahv letters declare Him as the first and last letter of the eteranl Torah (Isaiah 41:4, 44:6, Revelation 1:11, 22:13).

At the bottom of the banner is the nativity of Israel’s Passover lamb.  The swaddling clothes Yahshua was enwrapped is a fringe-cornered tallit. (Numbers 15:38, Luke 2:7)  His placement in an animal trough depicts His life of servitude to humanity.  The thorny crown above prophesies His rejection by His brethren (Isaiah 53:3, John 1:11).
