The richness of the Hebrew language provides poignant insight into Chanukah, the word that introduces the coming remembrance celebration of the Maccabean rededication of the Second Temple. When investigated through the eyes of Hebrew in its most Ancient form the letters of the word Chanukah reveal inspiring discernment into God’s intentions as He supernaturally delivered provisions to relight the Menorah, a highly significant furnishing in the Holy Place.


Chanukah, in the Ancient Hebrew, starts with the root word NC, one of the more classic thoughts of the entire Word of God, Grace. Chen (NC) was also the root thought of the Chanan or Ancient tent encampment of the Israelites, which embodied a place of beauty and provision. Thus, the opening thought of the word Chanukah directs our thoughts toward the idea that God’s Grace is the source of beautiful provision.


Next follows the letter v, Vav. Even to this day Vav connotes adding and attaching as a conjunction in the Hebrew language and thus speaks of establishing, attaching, or bringing together.


The Vav is followed by the letter k, Kaf. In its Ancient form, k signified the attributes and actions of the open palm. We are most familiar with the message of the k as the simple expression we make with our hand when we invite another into our home with a sweeping motion of our open palm indicating welcome and freedom of access to our space.


The final letter h, Hey, is the magical letter that gives life to the message embedded in the word Chanukah. It cries out “Hey, behold, take notice – this is important!”


Put them all together and the message of Chanukah is powerful and encouraging:


Chanukah – hkvNC
Behold the Grace of God that
freely establishes access
to His life giving light!

Head of the Year — 5780

The Hebrew year 5780 ushers in the decade of “pey” named from the 17th Hebrew letter. The letter itself means “mouth” and the focus of 5780 is on the power of what comes from our mouth — our words.

The “5780” artwork (pey,hey)translates to mouth as seen in Psalm 119:131. “I opened my mouth and panted, for I longed for your commandments.” In Paleo Hebrew the “pey” represents an open mouth meaning to express. The “hey” appears like a man with arms raised trying to get attention and means to look or behold. During 5780 we should “Behold what is the expression from our mouth.”

“Finally, brother, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.” Philippians 4:8

“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:21

THINK ON EXELLENT THINGS AND SPEAK LIFE TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS!
