Bless (Barak)

Bless (Barak)


There are precious few ways for man’s relationship with God to be reciprocal. To “bless” may be the most powerful example of that rare opportunity. The Ancient Hebrew pictographs give us a clear and achievable formula for not only receiving blessings from God but giving blessing to God by doing exactly as He does.


k

Kaf

Access

r

Resh

Man

B

Bet

Home

Together the pictographs mean to ‘give access to my house.’ When we are blessed by the Lord, it is much more than receiving simple physical treasures, He gives us access to Himself.

B

The ‘Bet’ shows the floor plan of a tent. It means home, inside, or family.

r

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

k

The ‘Kaf’ represents a palm or open hand, like to invite another into our home with a sweeping motion of our open palm.

The Ancient Hebrews had a relationship with their God unique to all others in that the “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” desired to have personal fellowship with His creation. That could only be accomplished if the natural principles of straightness were transferred to the spiritual understandings of man. The pictographs of Asar give a beautiful natural picture of that spiritual process.

Aleph

Strong

The word “Blessed” relays the Bedouin technique in rope making that stressed pressure in the beginning of the process to assure the end product would be straight.  The proper pressure of godly foundational principles assure us of a “straightness” in living which results in Blessing.

A

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

s

The ‘Shin’ represents two front teeth and can mean press, consume, separate, or destroy.

R

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