A look at Isaiah 6:1-7:6 and Matt 27:1-28:20

ISAIAH 6:1-7:6

” KADOSH, KADOSH, KADOSH, ADONAI TZEVA’OT” .... Holy, Holy, Holy, is the LORD(YHVH) of hosts” When the Torah mentions the “Holiness” of God, the word is KADOSH, the “O” is there, (the letter “vav” in Hebrew) but when “holiness” is mentioned referring to mankind, the “O” is missing, and we have KAD_SH, this “missing “vav” symbolizes our “incompleteness in holiness", because of our inborn “sin nature”

This is something that can only be understood in the original Hebrew. That is why it is so important to know the basics of Biblical Hebrew because if not, we are missing some true treasures in the WORD. The letter "Vav" can be understood as the word "and" in English. It joins two words together. It looks like an upside-down golf club or hockey stick. It can also be understood as the vowel "o" if it has a "dot" on the top.

The letter "Vav" is also symbolized as a "nail" or "tent peg" or a "spike" (Something that connects). So, when we look at the word "Kadosh" (Holy) from a Hebraic perspective, we see that the "Vav" (nail) is present. Our Heavenly Father, in human form as Yeshua/Jesus, received the "nails" in his hands so as to make us "holy" through his sacrifice and shedding of blood. In this way, when we trust HIM as our LORD and Savior, our Heavenly Father imputes Yeshua's holiness to us.

In the verse "Be Ye Holy for I AM Holy" (1 Peter 1:16) in the Hebrew New Testament, the "Vav" is missing in "be ye holy" since we did NOT receive the nails in our hands, yet our Savior DID. Our "Holiness" is an "incomplete action" Being "holy" or "set apart" is a lifelong process that becomes complete when we are with the LORD someday, and we receive our new sinless bodies.

Yeshayahu (Isaiah) is being asked by God, “Whom shall I send, who will go for US?” (Elohim) The Prophet answers, “Here am I, send me!” and God responds, “Go, and tell the people!” That should be our attitude as well, we have those orders too from God, to “tell the people” about Yeshua, to teach those who will listen, to his WORD, even though many will not understand at the beginning, or will refuse, we have to try, WE (all believers) are responsible for taking the “Good News” to others who will listen, and with the modern technology, the internet, this has become possible, what used to be almost impossible, now is possible, with fingers going across the keyboard and with the click of the mouse, the word is sent out. So, take advantage of today's modern technology. If the net can be used for silly and evil purposes, it can also be used for spreading the WORD and teaching the WORD to others (even through 10-minute "TikTok" segments)

MATTHEW 27:1-28:20

This relates to the age-old story of Yeshua's trial, execution, and resurrection, this story we know well, He did it to pay the price of our sins, past, present, and future, His one-time-only sacrifice was good forever and still IS good forever. But many people still reject this sacrifice, reject this gift of salvation, for a short-lived world of pleasure, for an eternity of suffering and pain.

When we look at Passover, which is coming up soon,( Starts April 22nd, 2024) we are reminded of the “Passover lambs” that were sacrificed/slaughtered on the eve of Passover. The blood of the lambs sprinkled on the doorposts of the Israelite houses in Goshen, thus protecting them from the Angel of Death. We could also presume that if an Egyptian family did the same, they also would have been spared being stuck dead by the Death Angel. (the first born that is).

All those sacrificed lambs point to Yeshua, who was the “Lamb of God” who took away the curse of sin from the world. The unleavened bread which was eaten that night, which we still eat on Passover, is “Yeshua the Bread of Life”. The Lamb of God and the Living Bread go together.

Pilate wrote these words on the cross, YESHUA OF NAZARETH, KING OF THE JEWS, in Hebrew it would have been 'YESHUA HA NOTZRI, V'HA MELECH Y'HUDIM. Within this title are the letters YHVH, which explain who Yeshua is, God on earth, made flesh and blood, whose blood was shed to set us free.
