Tav

Mark

Vav-Resh-Hey create a root word that means ‘to point the way.’ Adding Tav means shoot toward a mark or target. So the Torah helps point the way, but simply combining the literal definitions of the pictographs seems to reveal Christ in ‘Look what comes from the man nailed to the cross.’ WOW!

t

The ‘Tav’ represents a sign, mark, covenant, or cross. As the last letter of the Hebrew Aleph-bet, it also means last or end.

v

The ‘Vav’ represents a tent peg or nail and means to secure or hook. But it can also simply mean peg or nail.

r

The ‘Resh’ symbolizes a head, man, chief, highest, top, beginning, or first.

h

The ‘Hey’ pictograph represents a man with his hands in the air trying to get someone’s attention. It suggests look, reveal, behold.

Peace

No word in the Hebrew language is more graphic in its pictorial form than the word Shalom! The idea that peace originates in multiple forms is seldom considered. However, Yeshua made it clear that His Shalom was different from all other when He told His disciples, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.” (John 14:27) The pictographs clearly demonstrate the uniqueness of God’s approach to peace.

Love

Since the beginning mankind has, consciously or subconsciously, been on a quest to discover and master love. The elusive secret to capturing the ability to give or receive love is safely concealed in the ability of the Ancient Hebrew pictographs to graphically unveil this ongoing universal mystery. The key to unlocking this enigmatic pursuit has been hidden in plain sight for all who have discovered the character of their Creator God. To master true love in any relationship, simply reproduce and share God’s character traits.
