Most people don’t realize this, but there is such a mountain of evidence for the Christian faith that it would take more than a lifetime to learn it all. For example, did you know that the ancient Hebrew name for God actually contains the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ? In paleo-Hebrew (the kind of Hebrew used before the Babylonian captivity), not only did each word convey a meaning, but each letter was a “word picture” that conveyed a meaning as well. In fact, when you combine the meanings of all the letters in a particular word in paleo-Hebrew, it actually gives you a much clearer idea of what the word actually means.

For instance, the paleo-Hebrew word for father contains an Alef and a Bet. In paleo-Hebrew, an Alef looked like the head of an ox and it signified “ox, strength or first”. In paleo-Hebrew, a Bet was a word picture that looked like a house.

So the paleo-Hebrew word for father actually meant “the strength of the house”.

Nobody knows why God chose to give the Hebrew people a language that was so intricate, but once you start learning about these things it really is fascinating.

So what does the ancient Hebrew word for God mean once you break it down?

Amazingly, as the video posted below demonstrates, it means the following….

“Behold the Hand, Behold the Nail”

From the very beginning, God “hid” the message of the gospel in plain sight in his own name!


  1. Economic downturn cannot be cured by legislative action or executive pronouncement. Economic wounds has to be healed by the action in the cells with the economic body – the producers and consumers themselves.
    I’m definitely not someone that need to be prodded. In fact, if something, I’m the prod.

  2. Maybe I’m deluded, but I recently had a theory about the meaning of one of God’s other names: “El Shaddai,” which means “God Almighty.”

    It is spelled “אל שדי”. Aleph means ox, or strength. Lamed means goad, or lead. Hence, “El” means “Strong leader.”
    Shin means Consume, destroy, devour. Dalet means door, tent opening. Yod means hand.

    So, based on this, I theorize that a message exists in this name, and is something like, “The Strong Leader shall destroy the tent opening with His Hand.”
    The Holy of Holies was separated from the rest of the temple by a curtain, which acted like a door. In the Bible, when Jesus was crucified, the curtain was ripped from the top to the bottom.

    Therefore, I propose that God has given us another prophecy through His name, which was fulfilled when Jesus died.

    If I think I have anything else about God’s names, I’ll put it here.

    • This is why HIS name is the Aleph and Tav…which is found throughout the WORD, Who became flesh… starting with Genesis 1:1. He is the A to Z , the Alpha and the Omega and far, far greater than we can comprehend in our flesh!
