The Belt of Truth is an important item in the Armor of God used in spiritual warfare. The Aleph and Mem together create the word "Mother," the strong water that nurtures and holds a family together. The word "Truth" means to nurture the covenant.

The 'Aleph' is the picture of an ox head and illustrates the strength of an animal. It can mean strong, power, or leader.

M

The 'Mem' illustrates water or waves. As a nomadic people, the Hebrews feared the waves or waters of the seas, so the letter often meant chaos, mighty, or blood. On the other hand, water sustained life and in this instance, it carries that meaning.

t

The 'Tau' is used as a man's mark, either like a signature on an agreement or even a crossed sticks on the ground to mark a boundary point. Either way, it is associated with an agreement or covenant between two people or between man and God.

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

The pictograph portrays getting our attention, ‘Behold’, the root of Em (mother or giver of life) who seeks to establish continual life or activity in us.
