The Aleph Tav Deception

Joseph F. Dumond

Isa 6:9-12 And He said, Go, and tell this people, You hear indeed, but do not understand; and seeing you see, but do not know. Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their hearts, and turn back, and be healed. Then I said, Lord, how long? And He answered, Until the cities are wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land laid waste, a desolation, and until Jehovah has moved men far away, and the desolation in the midst of the land is great.

Shabbat Shalom To the Royal Family,

Special Mail Bag this Week

I have a couple of letters to share with you today that came in the mail this week. They were both handwritten and they came at a time when I was feeling very low.

Good Day Sir,

I expect you are well and inspired by the doors being opened in Africa and the lands of the Philippines. Must be nice to see so many open to hearing the message about where we are in timing of prophetic events and Sabbatical cycles. I wish more would hear here but it is Yehovah’s will. Seems so obvious with the things coming to pass so powerfully around the globe.

I been really enjoying the teachings from the podcast. I been going through them again with a man I mentioned. Sorry you talk to so many. I give his name again. His name is Lewis Spencer. He has a quite severe mental disability, but has read your books. ( all 3) Plus watched all the videos and podcasts for the most part. Five dollars of the money order this month is from him. He gets a very small allowance but heard you mention even $5.00 a month helps so he asked me to include his donation with mine. He actually lit up after hearing he can help in a small way. I enclosed a letter from him. I had to help him a little but not much.

I will continue to try help as income allows. Just not sure how much I can every month.

I really like the way James teaches. He really has a great knack for teaching. Hope to hear more from him while time allows.

As always my prayers are with you all. Have a good month Mr. Dumond

Steve Smith

Turo N.S. Canada.

And here is the letter from Lewis. Printed very neatly.

I watch all the videos books and articles newsletter. And we go over it every Sabbath because I thank you for saving our lives. I borrowed the book from Steve. Because I am on low income. And get a little pocket money. I am keeping the Aviv Barley calendar. This my First year. I am learn this. As I obey Torah.

Your Truly Lewis Spencer.

Brethren this is why I do this. It is not about the money. It is about teaching the truths to those Yehovah is calling from all walks of life. To those like Lewis and Steve and to those in Africa and in the Philippines and to those of you who are waking up and learning how you are connected to the tribes of Israel. To those who are not highly esteemed by society yet, Yehovah has esteemed you by calling you. Yes, He has called you, even you. Think about it. Out of 7 Billion Yehovah reached down and chose you to reveal His truths too.

As we grow, this work is demanding more and more from us to help others. If you can give then this is one reason why. If it is $5 or $1 or even 50 cents it all helps us to do this work and makes you a part of it. Yes, even .50 cents makes you part of this work. Lewis’s $5 makes him a part of the work we are reporting on in the two reports below. How awesome is that?

Mathew 10:40 “Whoever receives you receives me, and whoever receives me receives him who sent me. The one who receives a prophet because he is a prophet will receive a prophet’s reward, and the one who receives a righteous person because he is a righteous person will receive a righteous person’s reward. And whoever gives one of these little ones even a cup of cold water because he is a disciple, truly, I say to you, he will by no means lose his reward.”

Whatever reward I am to receive will also be given to Lewis and Steve for their support and help in this work.

Look at the answer Yehshua gave to Peter when he asked the following question.

Mat 19:27 Then Peter said in reply, “See, we have left everything and followed you. What then will we have?” Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, in the new world, when the Son of Man will sit on his glorious throne, you who have followed me will also sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or lands, for my name’s sake, will receive a hundredfold and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.

Mathew 20:1 Laborers in the Vineyard
“For the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. After agreeing with the laborers for a denarius a day, he sent them into his vineyard. And going out about the third hour he saw others standing idle in the marketplace, and to them he said, ‘You go into the vineyard too, and whatever is right I will give you.’ So they went. Going out again about the sixth hour and the ninth hour, he did the same. And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing. And he said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’ They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You go into the vineyard too.’ And when evening came, the owner of the vineyard said to his foreman, ‘Call the laborers and pay them their wages, beginning with the last, up to the first.’ And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius. Now when those hired first came, they thought they would receive more, but each of them also received a denarius. And on receiving it they grumbled at the master of the house, saying, ‘These last worked only one hour, and you have made them equal to us who have borne the burden of the day and the scorching heat.’ But he replied to one of them, Friend, I am doing you no wrong. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? Take what belongs to you and go. I choose to give to this last worker as I give to you. Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’ So the last will be first, and the first last.”

Although I may have learned these truths first about the Sabbatical years and how the Jubilee cycles reveal prophecy, those who have helped me to share this message and those who will do so in the future will share with me the same reward. Lewis is going to get the same reward as I do for his part in helping us to do this work. So is Steven and so will all of you that help do this work.

These two letters this week truly moved me and I want to thank Steven and Lewis for writing to me and for their generous words. I truly needed to hear this from them at this time. Thank you both.

Just imagine if we had just 1000 people give us $1 each week. That would be $4000 each month. How many mission trips could Telesphore go on?

If we had just 1000 people give $1 then we could set up 10 Torah centres in the Philippines. This would cover the monthly rent for all ten.

If we had 1000 people give just $1 each week then we could afford to support 4 Torah teachers with the cost of living in the Philippines each month.

Now imagine what we could do if we had 1000 people give us $50 each month.

The widow’s mite can do great works when all of us work together. Pray for more co-workers in this work.

We are now going to share with you the two reports from Burundi, actually Kenya this time and the Philippines. But I want you to take note of something. It is the one thing we have been doing in Burundi, Kenya, Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of the Congo Rwanda and the Philippines. Look at the pictures and go back and look at our other reports. We are not, let me say that again, we do NOT go to Messianic brethren or safe places that already know the Torah. No Bishop Telesphore and Pastor Aike are going to the Pentecostals and the Baptists and the Adventists and any Christian denomination they can get to hear our message.

We are not singing to the choir, we are reaching those who have never heard before about the Holy Days, and about the Sabbatical and Jubilee years. We are showing them how the New Testament is only understood when you understand the Old Testament.

And to be honest, I can’t keep up with the work. I am wanted in Kenya and Burundi. I can’t afford to go. I am wanted back in the Philippines and again I just can’t afford to go. We have Mat working in Davao where I was this year and he is focusing on teaching the basics of Torah to those who we feel are going to lead. The news I get from him is exciting and disappointing at the same time. But they need time to grow and to work out these new truths in their own minds.

Although I have sent Mat some funds, he is staying until his own funds run out and he estimates that to be in two or three months time. And now Aike is opening up new areas in Bohol. Who is going to teach after he leaves? And where is the funding going to come from to support this effort?

Brethren I am looking for 1000 people to make a commitment each month to send in a donation. Any amount, but to do it each month from this day forward. 1000 people just like Lewis Spencer. A thousand Widows mites.

Will Yehovah find you stepping up to the task at hand? Will you be counted as one of those who are going to reap these rewards with us? I pray you are. Or are you one of those who has a ready-made excuse why you cannot help?

In the last couple of emails I have been on you all about eating out on the Sabbath and doing your own pleasure and making excuses to justify your breaking of the Sabbath. One reader wrote in to thank me for that.

Dear Joseph

I appreciate all the work you have done and are doing, in teaching us about the Sabbath and the Sabbatical and Jubilee cycles.  I have learned so much!!!  Your teachings have helped me in my walk with Yehovah.  Not very many people are teaching on the those subjects, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Please pray !!!   !I am getting  scoffed at by friends and family for keeping Shabbat.  Friends and family think they can do anything they wish, from eating out (oh let the pagans serve us) to recreating (oh, I”m not working it’s ok).  According to them it seems it’s not okay for me to pray and read nd study the Bible have a nice Shabbat meal and enjoy good company snd just plain rest   It seems like they always have to be doing something.   I don’t need to be doing something all the time.  I do that all week.  I try to get enough done during the week so I can REST on Shabbat.   After all Yehovah gave us that day to rest.  There are consequences for not keeping Shabbat.   I have reaped those on a few occasions , but regretted it and didn’t get the rest I needed and twice two family members on two different occasions got really I’ll snd I had to go to the dr and pharmacy on Shabbat because of life threatening symptoms.  The other family didn’t get it that we had suffer for it.  It cost us lots of money too.  So, now I have a healthy fear of the Lord.   I love Yehovah and desire to please him in every way.

And even if you’re wrong about Shavout 20/20 but I really think you’re right. Where you are fleeing to you will be ministering to people and I love that! Keep doing what you’re doing and don’t doubt yourself. Besides the Holy Spirit will guide you every step of the way. Thank you for  defending the faith. It’s getting harder and harder to do that in the times we live in. Pray that I will be able to have a voice and stick up for myself. I’m very shy  not on paper but in person.

I don’t have any doubt that something is going to happen to America. I’ve been to Europe recently and Americans are not popular at all. And the U.S. Government  is not popular with the European Union.  You take a stand for supporting Israel and that’s not popular.  But who cares about popular we are here to please Yehovah.

Please don’t post my name.

Yehovah bless you.


Burundi Update









I want to add the following note. Henry Mate in the above pictures was seriously wanting to be ordained and wrote me a number of times and as you read above, asked Telesphore to bless him with this. A number of people in Kenya have asked me to come. And as I said we just cannot afford it at this time. So I wrote Henry the following;

Henry. Do the work! Do the Work whether I come or not. Do the work. Do the work whether others acknowledge you or not. Do the Work- Yehovah sees.
Do the work, teach others to do the work as well. Teach them to teach and how to rebuttal arguments against what your teaching. Do the work. IN season and out of Season. Do the work.

Time is running out, get the job done. Those in Kenya will not be coming to the wedding unless you and those you teach DO THE WORK. You do not need a special invitation, you do not need anything from me or Telesphore or any organization. JUST DO THE WORK.

I have been ridiculed and hated, despised and loved and admired. The views of men does not matter. What is Yehovah going to say, Well Done Good and Faithful servant. I can only hope.

What is HE going to say to you and to your group?

That all depends on if you do the work or if you stand and watch on the sidelines. has next no support. So all our article on our web site are there to help those who want to use them to teach. We cannot print them off and mail them. We just do not have the money.

May Yehovah bless you with the courage and wisdom and knowledge and understanding of HIS Torah and HIS truths so that you can share them with all of those you meet.

Many are given the task to teach and they say they will. Few of them ever contact me and work with us to do this work. But you are. SO DO the Work!

Henry wrote back a few days later and sent me this picture. You can see Henry and another teacher from their group had gone to the local market and began to teach. Look at what he is using to hold up his charts on the Sabbatical years.


Here is what Henry had to say.

More than 20 were in attendance. Initially we never thought people will show up thus when we on that small village market place and didn’t take complete pictures. Fortunately I only took this one. The one am providing was taken as we were starting up. The community has requested we visit then again soon. Some are in the backyard of the brother holding the bible. In the photo one of our brother is teaching bible-chart on the prophecies on the book of Daniel.

Brethren we are teaching people so that they can go out and teach others. We are not trying to gather them all into our flock. Will you help us raise up still more men who will teach Yehovah’s truths? We don’t need fancy hotel suites to teach or to stay in. We just need to get there and for people to want to learn.

Philippines Update

June 24, 2018

Shalom Brother Joseph Dumond,

Hope all is well with you and your family circle and as well as the sightedmoon brethren online community.

After my three days fasting and prayer about 2 weeks ago, things kinda speeding up. I believed the Holy Spirit of YHVH is moving fast trying to accomplish His will for the Philippine Islands through his Torah keeping servants.

You were the one who taught us about prophecies regarding the Philippines such as Isaiah 42.4 “ He will not be disheartened or crushed until He establishes justice on earth. The islands will wait for His Torah. 

Isa 24:15  ‘Therefore glorify YHVH in the east, the Name of YHVH, the God of Israel, in the isles of the sea.

After verifying reports from our potential ministry partners in the Islands of Bohol and Mindanao, it was confirmed that they are ready for the planned seminar regarding house bill 6312 declaring the Feasts of YHVH a national holiday in the Philippine Islands in different key locations.

Immediately I made the decision to go for it. By faith I had booked my flight to the following cities in the Visayas Islands such as Bohol, Dipolog city, passing by Ozamis City and Cagayan de Oro and Sindangan Zamboanga del Norte, my hometown. These cities are accessible by land and by sea.

Do you remember this woman who is an Adventist who went to our seminar last April 7 in Davao City?

Her name is Dolly Lagdao, she is our host in Bohol. After reading your book and me visiting her the last April, she was convinced to learn about the 7 feasts of YHVH that the seventh day Adventist church aren’t honouring and celebrating. She will be gathering all her friends in the Adventist circles as well as from the Christian community. I felt it worthwhile to organize a seminar on July 6, 7 & 8 in the Bohol Islands.

Did you know that in Bohol, a tricycle license will not be issued by the local government unless it has a bible verse in it? Wow, that’s because the former vice mayor of this town was an Adventist and she made it a city ordinance that every tricycle would need to have a bible verse in it. Look, I chance upon one that says ‘ to love God is to keep His commands.” What a prophetic word for me while I was there the last round. Praise God!

The Visayas Islands was hit by a powerful earthquake whose epicenter was Bohol last 2013 right after our government voted against Israel in favour of the partition of the Palestinian state.

By P199 – Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0,

Marketing wise, these posters designed by sis Pauline Benjes are targeting Christians to come and attend.

The house bill 6312 has made a way for us to penetrate Christians groups and teach them the Torah. Our Aim is to gear this groups to celebrate the coming fall feasts in September (Trumpets, Atonement & Tabernacles.) Most of these Christians would probably celebrate these feasts for the first time in their lives.

I know we share the same passion to teach the Torah to anyone that YHVH will be calling.

I’m doing my job here. YHVH is our commander in chief. I can hear His order whispering to my hears every second to go and make disciples of the Filipinos and teach them the Torah ( Matt.28:19).

I have good news from Sis Carmen Jimenez who is our key person who works in Congress.

Accordingly, she had reported to me just yesterday that more and more congressmen and supporting house bill 6312. We believe hope and pray that this bill will be approved within a year. Amen.

In fact, Carmen and I agreed to hold a seminar for the Christians in Manila. We are doing signature campaigns. We believed we can gather hundreds of thousands of signatures in support of Bill 6312.

Biblical prophecies (which is your department) are all tied to all that is happening here. Time is of the essence.

We need to act fast before the year 2020. By the year 2023, I can foresee a good Shemitah/Sabbatical year for the Philippines.

I pray that the Sightedmoon Online community will catch the vision and join and support us in this crusade to reestablished the Philippines as a sheep nation who will honour YHVH feasts days.

YHVH is in control of everything but He continues to use people to be able to give them the opportunity to serve and be joyful by being useful for His kingdom.

Honestly, I need help in terms of logistics support, travel expenses and accommodations and venue for the seminar and proving snacks and food for the participants as our Filipino culture demand.

Thank you for your continuous encouragement and support and all your prayers. YHVH be with us all.

Praying for this Work

Pauline sent me this list of scriptures to keep in mind as we pray for this work and for it’s growth.

Messiah said…
Mat 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Joh 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

Joh 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

Joh 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.

Joh 16:23 And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.

Joh 16:24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Heb 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
Heb 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

I pray and I ask you all to pray with me that Our Father will provide our financial needs, to support this work and to provide the teachers that want to promote His truths, so that we can reach those He is calling and yet to call, throughout Asia, so that His truths can be spread over the whole earth and bring glory to the name of Yehovah.


Septennial Torah Readings #66

We have resumed the Septennial Torah readings on our site. We used to do them and I would comment each week.

I will give you the reading for this week and you can go and read them without my comments. Instead of them being the annual Torah readings that are done in one year, the Septennial reading is done twice over the 7 year Sabbatical cycle.

The first weeks reading would have been done on April 1, 2017. This is the start of the first week in this 4th Sabbatical cycle right after the Shemitah year was done. Since this time, this Sabbath is now the 66th week of this Sabbatical Cycle. The readings for this Sabbath today and for this upcoming 67th week are as follows.

Week #           Shabbat Date     Torah             Neviim              Ketuvim           Brit Chadasha
66                  30/06/2018        Ex 20             Isaiah20-23       Ps132-134       John 8

67                    7/07/2018        Ex 21             Isaiah 24-27      Ps 135             John 9


Update on Teachings

A few weeks ago we put out a request for help. We did get a few people who wanted to step out and help. One of those who has done so was Mike. He does not want his name mentioned. But he wrote the teaching lesson on the Sabbath which you all can see by looking in the library under Library Article Archives

Here is lesson one on the Sabbaths. If you would like to help with teaching lessons in this area then please do the work and submit the teaching so we can go over it and work with you on it. This is a great way for homeschooling Moms or Dads to contribute.

The Aleph Tav Deception

Sometimes I am just amazed at how the Spirit of Yehovah works.

Three weeks ago we taught you about Ehyeh Ashur Ehyeh and how this expression reveals the very pronunciation of the name Yehovah. The Yod of Yihyeh, the Hov Hoveh and the ah Hayah. Yehovah.

We then went on to show you how Yehshua was, in fact, Yehovah that was hung on the tree.

John 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was born, I am.

We got a number of comments objecting to this understanding. I understand.

Then last week we wrote to you about the Golden Calf. The word “Golden” is to veil or to mask the object with something else. In this case to mask Yehovah with a calf.

H454   masse?ka?h   mas-say-kaw’

From H5258; properly a pouring over, that is, fusion of metal (especially a cast image); by implication a libation, that is, league; concretely a coverlet (as if poured out): – covering, molten (image), vail.

We had not planned on the two being related to each other. Nor had we planned on this week’s teaching which was a result of an email from one sister about the Snake on the Pole.

Let me share with you what I was sent. The first half of this teaching is about the Red Heifer. But I am focusing on the snake part.

Now that we’ve established the connection between Yeshua and the red heifer, let’s address another picture of the Messiah found in our parasha, i.e. that of the “bronze serpent on the pole.”  Let’s put on Jewish thinking caps and see if we can make sense of this.  In the 13th century, a Jewish rabbi – Ben Jacob HaCohen, likened the Messiah to a “snake.”  At first glance, this seems very repulsive to compare our Redeemer to the archetypal symbol of evil.  But it is derived from the fact that the Hebrew word, Mashiach (Messiah) and snake (nachash) have the same gematria of 358 (gematria is obtained by adding up the Hebrew letters).  The connection between these two words reveals the secret of another passage in Shemot/Exodus:

Shemot/?Exodus 7:10 So Moshe and Aharon went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, just as YHWH commanded. And Aharon cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent. 11 But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 12 For every man threw down his rod, and they became serpents.

And Aharon’s rod swallowed up their rods.

So, when the “fiery serpents” were biting and bringing death to the Israelites in the desert, Elohim commanded Moshe to make a symbol of a lifted up “fiery, bronze serpent,” in order that everyone who looked to it would be saved:

Bemidbar/Numbers 21:5 And the people spoke against Elohim and against Moshe: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.” 6 So YHWH sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died. 7 Therefore the people came to  ?Moshe, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against YHWH and against you; pray to YHWH that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moshe prayed for the people. 8 Then YHWH said to Moshe, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” 9 So Moshe made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.

We know this to be a precursor to Messiah being crucified in order to bring life:

John 3:14 “And as Moshe lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, 15 “that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.

Now here is something else you may find very interesting.  In Shemot 7:12 (above), the Hebrew word for “and it swallowed up” is “vayivla.”  It has the same root word as this verse in Isaiah:

Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever, And Adonai YHWH will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For YHWH has spoken.

Do you see it?  This is the plan of redemption!  As the staff-turned-snake “swallowed up” the evil serpents, so will the Messiah “swallow up” death!  And whoever looks to Messiah on that pole/tree/cross, will be saved!  This is another place where the plan of YHWH for salvation is pictured in the Hebrew Scriptures! And now one more thing which I think brings it all together.  This picture of the ancient symbols of the aleph and tav really got me thinking.  The “aleph” was a picture of an ox…or a “heifer” perhaps?  And the “tav” was a picture of “two crossed sticks.”  Hmmm….

In several place, Yeshua refers to Himself as the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet – the “Aleph and the Tav,” the “First and the Last”:

Revelation 1:8 “I am the Aleph and the Tav, the Beginning and the End,” says Adonai, “who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.”

Revelation 1:11 saying, “I am the Aleph and the Tav, the First and the Last,” and, “What you see, write in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia: to Ephesus, to Smyrna, to Pergamos, to Thyatira, to Sardis, to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.”

Isaiah 44:6 ” Thus says YHWH, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, YHWH of hosts: ‘I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no Elohim.

Revelation 22:13 “I am the Aleph and the Tav, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

Isaiah 48:12 ” Listen to Me, O Ya’acov, And Yisrael, My called: I am He, I am the First, I am also the Last.

It is not popular in the Hebrew Roots movement to talk about the “cross.”  People do not know what to call it…the execution stake, the pole, the tree, the cross.  It is true, that later this symbol was hijacked for committing atrocities and for pagan worship, but before that, YHWH used the symbols of the letters that make up the Aleph and the Tav to give us the prophetic picture of our Messiah as the sacrificial animal on a cross!

Take another look at the picture above.  Remember that the Israelites first began to worship a golden “calf,” and because of this Moshe broke the first set of stone tablets (Shemot 32:19).  But what’s the difference when in later years, people began to worship and bow down to an image of the “cross”?   These symbols were always meant to symbolize Yeshua, but we were never commanded to bow down and serve either of these images:

Shemot/Exodus 20:4 ” You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; 5 you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, YHWH your Elohim, am a jealous El.

Even the actual serpent on the pole was destroyed by King Hezekiah in later years because the people began to worship it.   Certainly that was never YHWH’s intention:

2 Kings 18:4 He removed the high places and broke the sacred pillars, cut down the wooden image and broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moshe had made; for until those days the children of Israel burned incense to it, and called it Nehushtan.

One more Hebrew word that has significance is the word spelled “aleph, vav, tav.”  This is the word translated “mark/sign.”  The picture in the Hebrew letters, however, tells it all:

We find the word “aleph, vav, tav” in Shemot where the “blood” of the Passover Lamb is the “sign/mark” that saves the firstborn:

Shemot/Exodus 12:13 ‘Now the blood shall be a sign for you on the houses where you are. And when I see the blood, I will pass over you; and the plague shall not be on you to destroy you when I strike the land of Egypt.

So as we see, Yeshua and the message of the Gospel is found throughout the Torah and the Hebrew Scriptures.  It is incredible and we will never come to the end of our learning.  There is always so much more and someday He will be the One teaching us from the mountain!

Isaiah 2:2 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days That the mountain of the YHWH’s house Shall be established on the top of the mountains, And shall be exalted above the hills; And all nations shall flow to it. 3 Many people shall come and say, “Come, and let us go up to the mountain of YHWH, To the house of the Elohim of Ya’acov; He will teach us His ways, And we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the Torah, And the word of YHWH from Jerusalem.

Shabbat Shalom!

The Serpent’s Deception

So, have you connected the dots yet?

I once again am so blown away by the things being revealed.

Revelation 12:7 Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

Revelation 12:3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it.

Ardell’s teaching on the serpent has opened my eyes to even more understanding.

Look again at the scripture she has quoted.

Exodus 7:10 So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord commanded. Aaron cast down his staff before Pharaoh and his servants, and it became a serpent. Then Pharaoh summoned the wise men and the sorcerers, and they, the magicians of Egypt, also did the same by their secret arts. For each man cast down his staff, and they became serpents. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs. Still Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he would not listen to them, as the Lord had said.

In this verse, the serpent is the good guy. In revelation the serpent is Satan. But in Exodus 10:7 we do not yet understand the serpent could be representing Yehovah. That revelation does not come until;

Numbers 21:7 So Moses prayed for the people. And the Lord said to Moses, “Make a fiery serpent and set it on a pole, and everyone who is bitten, when he sees it, shall live.”

Satan has taken on the same shape as Yehovah, in this case, a serpent. In Genesis Satan also appears as a serpent but also as an angel of light.

Nachash the Angel of Light

In our book The 2300 Days of Hell, we have the following section about the Great Enlightenment of mankind. This is the first part of Chapter 11.

The Enlightenment of Mankind

16 And Yehovah Elohim commanded the man, saying, “Eat of every tree of the garden 17 but do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for in the day that you eat of it you shall certainly die.” (Genesis 2:16- 17)

We were commanded not to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. This tree embodied both good information and bad information. It is much like how the conspiracy teachings which run rampant today include some sound facts and/ or biblical knowledge and yet, are mixed in with some out and out lies or not quite the true stories. Or, in other words:

12 “Do not say, ‘a conspiracy,’ concerning all that this people call a conspiracy, nor be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled.” (Isaiah 8:12)

Let us now read in Genesis how Eve had a conversation with the serpent:

1 And the serpent was more crafty than any beast of the field which Yehovah Elohim had made, and he said to the woman, “Is it true that Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of every tree of the garden?’” 2 And the woman said to the serpent, “We are to eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of it, nor touch it, lest you die.’” 4 And the serpent said to the woman, “You shall certainly not die. 5 For Elohim knows that in the day you eat of it your eyes shall be opened, and you shall be like Elohim, knowing good and evil.” ( Genesis 3:1-5)

The word serpent is:

H5175 nâchâsh naw-khawsh’

From H517:

a snake (from its hiss): –serpent.

H5172: nâchash  naw-khash’

A primitive root; properly to hiss, that is, whisper a (magic) spell; generally to prognosticate: –X certainly, divine, enchanter, (use) X enchantment, learn by experience, X indeed, diligently observe.

H5174: nechâsh  nekh-awsh’ (Chaldee); corresponding to H5154; copper: –brass.

We also read of Satan being described in 2 Corinthians.

13 For such are false emissaries, deceptive workers, masquerading as emissaries of Messiah. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself masquerades as a messenger of light! 15 It is not surprising, then, if his servants also masquerade as servants of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works!

[Footnotes: Matthew 7:15-23; 2 Peter 2:1-22. Matthew 13:41-42 (2 Corinthians 11:13-15)]

W.E. Bullinger writes of this very thing;

The Hebrew word rendered “serpent” in Genesis 3:1 is Nachash (from the root Nachash, to shine ), and means a Shining One. Hence, in Chaldee it means brass or copper, because of its shining. Hence also, the word Nehushtan, a piece of brass, in 2 Kings 18:4.

4 He took away the high places and broke the pillars, and cut down the Ash?rah, and broke in pieces the bronze serpent which Mosheh had made, for until those days the children of Yisra’?l burned incense to it, and called it Ne?ushtan. (2 Kings 18:4)

In the same way Saraph, in Isaiah 6:2, 6 means a Burning One, and, because the serpents mentioned in Numbers 21 were burning, in the poison of their bite, they were called Saraphim, or Seraphs.

But when the LORD said unto Moses, “ Make thee a fiery serpent” (Numbers 21:8), He said, “ Make thee a Saraph,” and, in obeying this command, we read in verse 9, “Moses made a Nachash of brass.” Nachash is thus used as being interchangeable with Saraph.

Now, if Saraph is used of a serpent because its bite was burning, and is also used of a celestial or spirit-being (a BurningOne), why should not Nachash be used of a serpent because its appearance was shining, and be also used of a celestial or spirit-being (a Shining One)?

The Nachash, or serpent, who beguiled Eve (2 Corinthians 11:3) is spoken of as “ an Angel of Light” in verse 14. Have we not, in this, a clear intimation that it was not a snake, but a glorious shining being, apparently an angel, to whom Eve paid such great deference, acknowledging him as one who seemed to possess superior knowledge, and who was evidently a being of a superior (not of an inferior) order? Moreover, in the description of Satan as “the King of Tyre” (Ezekiel 28:11-19, who is quite a different being from “the Prince of Tyre,” in vv.1-10, who is purely human.) it is distinctly implied that the latter being was of a super natural order when he is called “a cherub” (Ezekiel 28:14, 16; read from vv.11-19). His presence “in Eden, the Garden of Elohim” (v.13), is also clearly stated, as well as his being “perfect in beauty” (v. 12) his being “perfect” in hisways from the day he was created “untiliniquity was found in him” (v.15), and asbeing “lifted up because of his beauty” (v.17).

We cannot conceive Eve as holding converse with a snake, but we can understand her being fascinated (It is remarkable that the verb nachash always means to enchant, fascinate, bewitch; or of one having and using occult knowledge. See also: Genesis 30:27; 44:5, 15; Leviticus 19:26; Deuteronomy 18:10; 1 Kings 20:33; 2 Kings 17:17,21:6 and 2 Chronicles 33:6. So also is the noun used in Numbers 23:23, 24:1.) by one, apparently “an Angel of Light” (i.e., a glorious angel), possessing superior and supernatural knowledge.

Satan is an archangel and appears to us as an Angel of Light and as such had Eve’s undivided attention, as he would have had with any of us. Satan came to Eve not as a
snake, but as an Angel of Light and was stunning in his beauty. This is why she talked to him. Satan is not going to change his ways today, nor has he anytime in human
history or will he in the future.

Inasmuch as Satan appears to us as an angel of light, so are the Egyptian and Babylonian gods, a ‘type’ of Satan.

In our article on New Years which I highly recommend you all read Titled New Years Day-Father Time, we show you the beginning of some of the traditions that we have today. The article above is talking about Ouranos the Great Enlightener of Mankind. I have quoted the section below about the “Burnt One” which is also derived from the same understanding of Ouranos who is Father Time and Kush his son the new babe of New Years. I want you to see that Kush was also considered the Burnt one as was Satan as explained above.

Ouranos (Ham) was the first ruler of the universe, created by Gaea (Noah’s wife and mother of Ham) when she emerged from Chaos. (the Great Flood) Ouranos, with Gaea, became the father of the Titans.

Ham, the third son of Noah, was the father of Cush, and his name comes from the Chaldean “khem,” which means the “burnt one” or the “burning one” and is in reference, not only to Ham as the son of Noah, the father of Cush, but also as the name of their Sun-god.

From Pompei, we have this image of Mercury the messenger of the gods. It is Cush the burnt one strutting his Penus signifying his power. This too is from where we get the giant symbols of the Phallus from. Once again take note of the battle ax also known as the hammer. We explained the hammer of Vulcan which is Cush in our series on Assyria. Mercury is also a lover of Venus when he is known as Vulcan.

This means that Cush the grandson of Noah’s wife was also having sex with her.

Cush is derived from the Hebrew “kvsh” and is Chaldean in origin. It comes from the word “khus,” which in pronunciation is “kha wos.” It is where we get the word chaos. This was the name of the first father of the gods, “Khaos,” the Confounder, he who caused the confusion of tongues and scattered the inhabitants of the once united Earth abroad. Under the name Belus, which is another Chaldean word meaning “the Confounder,” he is said to be the father of Ninus, the first king of Babylon.

The Aleph Deception

Above we have connected the Nachash with the Great Enlightenment of mankind Ouranos. Ouranos is Ham. Then, Cush, the Burnt One takes this leadership position and then Nimrod and then his son whose name in Egyptian mythology is Horus. In our teaching above about New Year Traditions, we show you how Ham went into his Mother, the wife of Noah and had sex with her. The Bible calls this uncovering the nakedness of your father. We also show you how Cush did the same thing as did Nimrod. This woman, that each one of these men went into, was also known as Mother of All Living, Mother Nature and The Queen of Heaven.

ONE OF THE MOST outstanding examples of how Babylonian sun worship has continued to our day may be seen in the way Mary worship replaced the ancient worship of the mother goddess.

The story of the mother and child was widely known in ancient Babylon and developed into an established worship.  Numerous monuments of Babylon show the goddess mother Semiramis with her child Tammuz in her arms.

Last week we talked about the worship of Tammuz by the Fasting and mourning on the 17th of the 4th month. Tammuz was Nimrod who was executed by Shem. Shem is also known as Melchizedek the ruler of Salem. When people mourn or fast in the 4th month for Tammuz they are mourning the death of Nimrod when he was executed by Shem.

When the people of Babylon were scattered to the various parts of the earth, they carried the worship of the divine mother and her child with them.  This explains why many nations worshiped a mother and child–in one form or another–centuries before the true savior, Jesus Christ, was born into this world. In the various countries where this worship spread, the mother and child were called by different names, for, we will recall, language was confused at Babel.

The Chinese had a mother goddess called Shingmoo or the “Holy Mother.”   She is pictured with child in arms and rays of glory around her head.

The Halo or the rays of Glory around the head are signs of sun worship worshipping the light, the burnt one.

The ancient Germans worshiped the virgin Hertha with child in arms.  The Scandinavians called her Disa who was also pictured with a child.  The Etruscans called her Nutria, and among the Druids the Virgo-Patitura was worshiped as the “Mother of God.” In India, she was known as Indrani, who was also represented with child in arms.

The mother goddess was known as Aphodite or Ceres to the Greeks; Nana, to the Sumerians; and as Venus or Fortuna to her devotees in the olden days of Rome, and her child as Jupiter.

In Asia, the mother was known as Cybele and the child as Deoius.  “But regardless of her name or place,” says one writer, “she was the wife of Baal, the virgin queen of heaven, who bore fruit although she never conceived.”

The accompanying picture below ( go to the site to see the pictures) shows the mother and child as Devaki and Crishna.  For ages, Isi, the “Great Goddess” and her child Iswara, have been worshiped in India where temples were erected for their worship.

When the children of Israel fell into apostasy, they too were defiled with this mother goddess worship.  As we read in Judges 2:13: “They forsook the Lord, and served Baal and Ashtaroth.”  Ashtaroth or Ashtoreth was the name by which the goddess was known to the children of Israel.  It is pitiful to think that those who had known the true God would depart from him and worship the heathen mother.  Yet this is exactly what they did repeatedly (Judges 10:6; 1 Sam. 7:3,4; 12:10; I Kings 11:5; 2 Kings 23-13).  One of the titles by which the goddess was known among them was “the queen of heaven” (Jer. 44:17-19).  The prophet Jeremiah rebuked them for worshiping her, but they rebelled against his warning.

In Ephesus, the great mother was known as Diana.  The temple dedicated to her in that city was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world!  Not only at Ephesus, but through out all Asia and the world was the goddess worshiped (Acts 19:27).

In Egypt, the mother was known as Isis and her child as Horus.  It is very common for the religious monuments of Egypt to show the infant Horus seated on the lap of his mother.

This false worship, having spread from Babylon to the various nations, in different names and forms, finally became established at Rome and throughout the Roman Empire.  Says a noted writer concerning this period: “The worship of the Great Mother…was very popular under the Roman Empire.  Inscriptions prove that the two (the mother and the child) received divine honors…not only in Italy and especially at Rome, but also in the provinces, particularly in Africa, Spain, Portugal, France, Germany, and Bulgaria.”


The usurping of power from Noah by Ham, and then again by Cush from Ham, and then again by Nimrod from Cush led to the establishment of the government system that they also set up. It became known as the Babylonian system and from this, it has spread over the whole earth.

We read in Gen 10:8 that Nimrod was a mighty hunter.

Cush fathered Nimrod; he was the first on earth to be a mighty man. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord. Therefore it is said, “Like Nimrod a mighty hunter before the Lord.”

Nimrod was a hunter of men. Conquering them and forcing them into his empire.

Nimrod in many ancient religions is pictured as a Bull in art and mythology. He is drawn with a man’s body but with the Bulls head. In ancient Greece, orgiastic rites were celebrated in winter and spring festivals dramatizing the seasonal cycle of death and rebirth and attended by phallic masked-men. This is the birth of Nirmod December 25 and the sex act of Ham Cush and Nimrod going into their mother venerated in the Easter celebrations today.

Dionysus as bull with Maenads.

Gimbutas insists the Greek god Dionysus, associated with a bull and the powers of annual fertility and renewal, originated in pre-Indo-European cultures of the Neolithic Balkans and Anatolia. He was worshipped by women as a symbol of masculine virility and his orgiastic rites were celebrated by ecstatic worshippers such as the female Maenads.

The motif of the woman and bull became the basis of later Bronze Age myths. In the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh the goddess of love Inanna, angry at the hero Gilgamesh for spurning her amorous advances, lets loose the “Bull of Heaven” upon earth which wreaks havoc until killed by Gilgamesh and his companion Enkidu. We learn in another myth that the Bull of Heaven was none other than the husband of Inanna’s sister Erishkegal–queen of the underworld. Inanna’s lover and husband Dummuzi, also known as Tamuz, was also mourned in funeral rites as the sacrificial “Wild Bull”  during his semi-annual confinement in the underworld.


“Europa and the Bull”
Greek pottery 480 BCE

In the Greek myth of the Abduction of Europa, the god Zeus fell in love with the maiden Europa, shapeshifting into a beautiful bull and enticing her to climb on his back. He then swam to Crete with her where he ravished her in the form of an eagle. There she became the first queen of the island, giving birth to its future kings.

An even darker version of the woman/bull myth is the story of the Minotaur. The Cretan queen Pasiphae, under the magical spell of the god Poseidon, became enamored with a bull and mated with it, giving birth to the bull-headed Minotaur. The monster was confined to the underground labyrinth where Athenian youths were sacrificed to it. Finally it was slayed by the hero Theseus, with help from princess Ariadne who gave him a ball of thread to find his way out of the maze. The Minotaur, named “Asterios” meaning “the starry one”,  was associated with the constellation Taurus–as was the Bull of Heaven of Mesopotamian myth. As mentioned in a previous post, Taurus was first recorded in cave paintings of the Upper Paleolithic where it likely had mythic as well as calendrical associations.

The Europeans understand their history and the story of Europa and the Bull. Here is the German magazine with the headline after the Unification of European nations in 2000.

The pictures are purposely showing the great whore riding a Bull. We read about this whore in Revelation 17

Rev 17:1 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” And he carried me away in the Spirit into a wilderness, and I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast that was full of blasphemous names, and it had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and jewels and pearls, holding in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the impurities of her sexual immorality. And on her forehead was written a name of mystery: “Babylon the great, mother of prostitutes and of earth’s abominations.” And I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints, the blood of the martyrs of Jesus.


Even in front of the EU Parliment building in Brussels is the women riding the beast. The Beast or the Bull was a representation of Ham and then of Cush and then of Nimrod. The woman was Noah’s wife and she had sexual relationships with each of these men, in order to secure her part in leading the people.


The symbol of the Bull as the leader was taken from none other than the Alef, the very words of Yehovah.


The Aleph as a symbol represents Yehovah and it has been usurped by Satan under the guise of Ham, Cush and Nimrod. Remember our article last week where we mentioned the Golden Calf. That Calf is just another word for the Beast, the Mighty Bull by the name Nimrod.

We wrote;

The word Golden Calf is

H454   masse?ka?h   mas-say-kaw’

From H5258; properly a pouring over, that is, fusion of metal (especially a cast image); by implication a libation, that is, league; concretely a coverlet (as if poured out): – covering, molten (image), vail.

Or the masking of the calf. That is the masking of Yehovah. The people when they place another god in front of Yehovah they hide Yehovah from themselves. Just as they told Moses to talk to Yehovah and not to have Yehovah speak to them.

But notice in the Golden Calf incident they use a calf, an image of the OX or Aleph. This they got from their stay in Egypt and by mixing in the Egyptian religions with their own. The Egyptian and Babylonian were both born of the same source. Cush and Nimrod. The mythological god called Bacchus was a man chasing virgins with the head of a bull.

Exo 32:4And he took them from their hand, and fashioned it with an engraving tool. And he made it a molten calf. And they said, These are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of the land of Egypt.


Satan who comes as an Angel of light now has deceived everyone coming in the power of the Bull or as God.

Let us recap here.

Yehovah has been symbolized as the True Light. Satan has come as an Angel of Light.

Yehovah is pictured as the Serpent in Moses’ hand as a staff. Satan is pictured as the serpents of the Egyptian sorcerers and magicians.

Hosea 11:10 says Yehovah is like a roaring lion.

They shall go after the Lord;
he will roar like a lion;
when he roars,
his children shall come trembling from the west;
they shall come trembling like birds from Egypt,
and like doves from the land of Assyria,
and I will return them to their homes, declares the Lord.

And Satan too, is said to be like a lion.

1 Peter 5:8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

And while I am here take a read of Psalm 22 of what David asked Yehovah to save him from.

Save me from the mouth of the lion!
You have rescued me from the horns of the wild oxen!

On the Day of Atonement, there are two Goats. The one that is killed is Yehovah and the one taken away as the Azazel Goat is Satan. Here is what we said in our article Where does it say we are going to Sacrifice God? Leviticus!

The OTHER Goat, the one that is sacrificed for a sin offering is Yehovah.

Lev 16:9 And Aaron shall present the goat upon which the lot fell for YEHOVAH and offer him for a sin-offering.

Yehovah is represented by the other Goat and this goat once a year represented Yehovah being killed as a sin offering. It is the exact same thing as the Azael Goat representing Satan and being locked away or thrown off a cliff in the wilderness of Azazel.

Why do you think we fast on this day and only on this day once a year? Because it was on this day that Yehovah was showing us that He would die at the hands of His creation for His creation.

Yehovah was represented as the Goat that was killed on Atonement.

More Bull

When Israel left Egypt they had been greatly influenced by the religion of Egypt. Isis is also known as Hathor the cow-faced woman. The horns again symbolise the power of her authority and connects you directly back into the Babylonian Beast System. That beast being symbolized as a Bull even today. She is nursing the child born after the death of Nimrod or in this case Osiris the husband of Isis. Between the horns of Hathor is the sun again attesting to the Shining One, the Sun, the Burnt One.

Isis, depicted with a cow’s head, suckles her son Horus – one of the many ways in which she is show, this emphasises her role as Mother Goddess

But who is Isis or Hathor or Het as she was also known in Egypt? Who is this Mother goddess that has swept the world over, riding on the back of the Bull?

Here is a picture of Mother Earth from the Roman era known as Tellus Mater or Mother Earth. She was the Mother of all living. Are these two babes Ham, or Cush or Horus or Nimrod. One of them for sure is Canaan, the bastard child of Ham and Noah’s wife.


Notice that below Mother Earth is the Bull, once again connecting her to the system she is part of.


In India, they too have the same symbols only with different names. Shailputri Mata is the name of the woman riding the Beast in the picture below. Notice it is a Bull.

Goddess Durga was born in the house of  King of  Mountains “Parvat Raj  Himalaya”,  so she is called “Shailputri”  means the daughter of the mountain. 1st appearance of Ma­Durga is known as shail­putri. Seated on bull this Mataji has Trident in right hand and Lotus flower in left hand. She is the 1st Durga in 9 forms. Shailputri is the absolute form of  Mother Nature.  She is also known as Goddess Parvati the consort of Lord Shiva and mother of Ganesha and Kartikeya. In the Navratra festival, the worshipping Mother Goddess has a half moon in her forehead and she is holding a  trident in her right hand and lotus flower in her left hand. She rides on mount Nandi a bull.

In the following picture, Janmashtami, the Mother of the Child, is chasing the child Krishna, the Messiah or reborn one. Notice the Bulls in the background. My Eastern religion is very rusty.


In the next two pictures, we have Lord Shiva again with his Bull beneath him. Notice his family behind him. Mother of the earth and the reborn child.



What I am showing you in all of this is how the Aleph has been high-jacked by Satan and turned into the worshipping of Satan.

Isaiah 14:12 How you are fallen from heaven,
O Day Star, son of Dawn!
How you are cut down to the ground,
you who laid the nations low!
You said in your heart,
I will ascend to heaven;
above the stars of God
I will set my throne on high;
I will sit on the mount of assembly
in the far reaches of the north;
I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;
I will make myself like the Most High.’

Satan is the deceiver of the whole world as stated in Rev 12:9. And now you can see how he has deceived many as he impersonated Yehovah in the shape of the Aleph or Bull.

The Tav Deception

The Priest of Tammuz used to wear clothing depicted below that had symbols of crosses or Tavs all over them. This worship again was spread across the world with the confounding of the tongues at Babel along with the Mother and Child worship. Did we not just talk about the month of Tammuz and those who mourn on this month.


Below we have Het and Tarus and notice what she has in her hand.


In ancient Egypt, the ankh symbol played an important spiritual role. A hieroglyph signifying “life,” the ankh was widespread on ancient Egyptian monuments, in writings, within art, and in religious settings. Though its real origins are unknown due to its longstanding prevalence, its popularity throughout ancient Egyptian life speaks to its importance.

The Life-giving Ankh

According to scholars and Egyptologists, the ankh’s most prevalent meaning involves the idea of life. Some believe that it symbolizes male and female genitalia united. More popularly, it is believed to be a symbol of everlasting life or eternity. When depicted in the hands of Egyptian deities, the ankh is read as a scepter that can resurrect the dead. Therefore, Egyptian royalty would wear the ankh for protection and eternal life.

To this day, the ankh is also used to represent the planet Venus, the namesake of which, the goddess Venus or Aphrodite, was chiefly worshipped. Aphrodite is another name for Semiramis The Mother of All Living and Mother Earth.


When Christianity came to Egypt, the ancient Egyptian symbol of ankh was taken over by the fourth-century Coptic Christians and their church adopted the ankh as its unique form of the Christian cross because of its cruciform shape.

Interestingly, the ankh symbolizing life and accompanied by a two-winged sun and wings turned downward, was found depicted on an impression of the royal seal of King Hezekiah (727–698 BC).

The artefact was unearthed during the Ophel excavations at the foot of the Temple Mount, in 2015.


Before we talk more about the Tav I want to point out one glaring fact. Yehshua was not hung on a cross. He was hung on a TREE.

1 Peter 2:24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed. For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Galtians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”— so that in Christ Jesus the blessing of Abraham might come to the Gentiles, so that we might receive the promised Spirit through faith.

Acts 5:39 The God of our fathers raised Jesus, whom you killed by hanging him on a tree.

Acts 10:39 And we are witnesses of all that he did both in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They put him to death by hanging him on a tree,

Acts 3:13 And when they had carried out all that was written of him, they took him down from the tree and laid him in a tomb.

But the bible clearly says he was on a cross.

Ancient Greek has two verbs for crucify: ana-stauro (??????????), from stauros, “stake”, and apo-tumpanizo (????????????) “crucify on a plank”, together with anaskolopizo (???????????? “impale”). In earlier pre-Roman Greek texts anastauro usually means “impale”.

New Testament Greek uses four verbs, three of them based upon stauros (???????), usually translated “cross”. The most common term is stauroo (???????), “to crucify”, occurring 43 times; sustauroo (?????????), “to crucify with” or “alongside” occurs five times, while anastauroo (??????????), “to crucify again” occurs only once at the Epistle to the Hebrews 6:6. prospegnumi (???????????), “to fix or fasten to, impale, crucify” occurs only once at the Acts of the Apostles 2:23.

The English term cross derives from the Latin word crux. The Latin term crux classically referred to a tree or any construction of wood used to hang criminals as a form of execution. The term later came to refer specifically to a cross.

The English term crucifix derives from the Latin crucifixus or cruci fixus, past participle passive of crucifigere or cruci figere, meaning “to crucify” or “to fasten to a cross”.

In some cases, the condemned was forced to carry the crossbeam to the place of execution. A whole cross would weigh well over 135 kg (300 lb), but the crossbeam would not be quite as burdensome, weighing around 45 kg (100 lb).

The New Testament writings about the crucifixion of Jesus do not speak specifically about the shape of that cross, but the early writings that do speak of its shape, from about the year AD 100 on, describe it as shaped like the letter T (the Greek letter tau) or as composed of an upright and a transverse beam, sometimes with a small projection in the upright.

It is now clearly simple to understand how the ancient symbol for Tammuz would now be transferred over the Christian symbol of Jesus on a cross. The Coptic cross would replace the Ankh of Egypt and the crucifix would replace the Coptic cross in the west.



The Aeph Tav Deception Conclusion

Again read Numbers.

Numbers 21:5 And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, and there is no water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. And Jehovah sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died.
And the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, because we have spoken against Jehovah, and against thee; pray unto Jehovah, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. And Jehovah said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a standard: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he seeth it, shall live. And Moses made a serpent of brass, and set it upon the standard: and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he looked unto the serpent of brass, he lived.

Yehovah is the one commanding Moses to make this image of a snake on the pole. Yet in the very ten commandments we are told not to do this very thing.

Exodus 20:2 I am Jehovah thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee a graven image, nor any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them, for I Jehovah thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, upon the third and upon the fourth generation of them that hate me, and showing lovingkindness unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.

We are not to have any images or likenesses that we are going to bow down to. That is the difference. The snake on the pole was not to be bowed down to.

When people genuflect or bow to the cross or the Statue of Mary or Joseph or baby Jesus, they are in fact bowing and worshipping the snake on the cross and have sinned.


We are told in Exodus 16:4 that Yehovah would test us.

Then said Jehovah unto Moses, Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day’s portion every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or not.

The serpent on the pole was a test as well as a source of healing. And Israel failed the test.

2 King 18:3 And he did that which was right in the eyes of Jehovah, according to all that David his father had done.
He removed the high places, and brake the pillars, and cut down the Asherah: and he brake in pieces the brazen serpent that Moses had made; for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it; and he called it Nehushtan. He trusted in Jehovah, the God of Israel; so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor among them that were before him. For he clave to Jehovah; he departed not from following him, but kept his commandments, which Jehovah commanded Moses.

Yehshua tells us that the serpent on a pole is a symbol of what is to happen to him.

John 3:15 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up; that whosoever believeth may in him have eternal life.

That took place about 2000 years ago. Now the crucifix and the name of Jesus are worshipped and prayed to and spoken about all the time. But no one obeys the word of Yehovah. Christian churches tell the story of Jesus over and over but never do they teach you to obey the laws of Aleph. No, they tell you the Tav nailed them to the Cross and you no longer have to keep them.

Many of the churches are built on hills to raise them above other buildings. Many of the churches have steeples which represent the pillars or phallus symbols. Today the Asherah mentioned in Hezekiah’s day are Mother Goddesses.

It is now time for us to tear down our idols that we worship in place of the true Aleph Tav, the first and the last, Yehovah. Our Idols which mask the truth about Yehovah and cause so much confusion. It is time to stop worshipping the cross. It is time to begin to pray to Yehovah as Yehshua said you are to do. It is time to stop praying to Mother Nature and worshipping the beast system.

The Aleph Tav is one. Not two or not three. It is Yehovah and He alone.

Let me quote again the I AM THE I AM article.

Psalm 22:12 Many bulls have compassed me; Strong bulls of Bashan have beset me round.
They gape upon me with their mouth, As a ravening and a roaring lion.
I am poured out like water, And all my bones are out of joint: My heart is like wax; It is melted within me.
My strength is dried up like a potsherd; And my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; And thou hast brought me into the dust of death.
For dogs have compassed me: A company of evil-doers have inclosed me; They pierced my hands and my feet.
I may count all my bones; They look and stare upon me.
They part my garments among them, And upon my vesture do they cast lots.

Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they shall look unto me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.

Also, I wanted to point out in Rev 1:7 that He is the Alpha and the Omega. In Hebrew, this would be the Aleph and the Tav. It is also written as the First and the Last.

Rev 1:7 Behold, he cometh with the clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they that pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth shall mourn over him. Even so, Amen.
I am the Alpha and the Omega, saith the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.

Rev 1:17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as one dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying, Fear not; I am the first and the last, and the Living one; and I was dead, and behold, I am alive for evermore, and I have the keys of death and of Hades.

Rev 1:11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.

Rev 2:8 And to the angel of the church in Smyrna write: These things saith the first and the last, who was dead, and lived again:

Rev 22:13 Behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to render to each man according as his work is. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.

These scripture in revelation are a direct relation to those found in Isaiah.

Isaiah 41:4 Who hath wrought and done it, calling the generations from the beginning? I, Jehovah, the first, and with the last, I am he. The isles have seen, and fear; the ends of the earth tremble; they draw near, and come.

Isaiah 44:6 Thus saith Jehovah, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, Jehovah of hosts: I am the first, and I am the last; and besides me there is no God.

Isaiah 48:12 Hearken unto me, O Jacob, and Israel my called: I am he; I am the first, I also am the last. Yea, my hand hath laid the foundation of the earth, and my right hand hath spread out the heavens: when I call unto them, they stand up together.

Do you understand what it is you are reading? It was Yehovah that we killed on the Tree and pierced. He was the First and the Last, the Aleph and the Tav that died for us. Yehshua is Yehovah.

John 14:6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.
The Father Revealed
“If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you know Him and have seen Him.”
Philip said to Him, “Lord, show us the Father, and it is sufficient for us.”
Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the Father; so how can you say, ‘Show us the Father’? Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the Father who dwells in Me does the works. Believe Me that I am in the Father and the Father in Me, or else believe Me for the sake of the works themselves.

Yeshua also said He was the way and the Truth: I am the way and the truth and the life. The Hebrew word for truth is emet: tma It contains the first letter Aleph a the middle letter Mem m and the last letter Tav t of the Hebrew alphabet. The Jewish sages say that this implies that the truth contains everything from Aleph to Tav:


The Hebrew word emet has a more concrete meaning than the English word for “truth” (the English word derives from the Greek/Western view of truth as a form of correspondence between language and reality, but invariably languished over epistemological questions that led, ultimately, to skepticism). In the Hebraic mindset, the person who acts in emet is one who can be trusted (Gen. 24:49? 42:16? 47:26? Josh. 2:14). Actions, speech, reports, or judgment are emet because they are reliable (Dt. 13:14? 22:20? 1 Kings 10:6? 22:16? Pr. 12:19? Zech. 8:16). If a seed is a seed of emet, its quality is trustworthy (Jer. 2:21).

In the Tanakh, emet is often coupled with chesed, covenant faithfulness, which designates God’s loyalty in fulfilling his promises and his covenant. For example, God’s emet and chesed were majestically revealed in giving the covenant at Sinai (Ex. 34:6).

The LORD, the LORD God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abundant in goodness and truth (Exodus 34:6).

Indeed, Pilate’s question, “What is truth?” is a category mistake, since truth is not about “what” but about “Who.” That is, truth is not something objective and static, a thing to be known and studied from a distance. No. Truth is essentially personal. It is personal disclosure of the character of the subject. Understood in this way, truth is a way of living, a mode of existence, a relational truth.

Interestingly, Aleph and Tav form a unique word that functions as a “direct object marker” in the both Biblical and modern Hebrew:  ta

As it is written in Genesis 1:1, “In the beginning God (ALEPH/TAV) created the heavens and the earth.”

It says the Aleph Tav, not Yehshua, not Jesus, not Allah or Mohammad, not  Shiva, Brahma, Vishnu or Shakti, not Krishna, nor Bhudah, or Kung Fu Tzu, not Kunitokotachi and Amenominakanushi. ?? is the first and the last, the first and teh last is Yehovah and none other. It is time to terar down just as Hezekiah did, all these other false religions that have masked and hidden the truth and give honour to the one and only true Creator, Yehovah.

    Mr. Dumond,
    I really appreciate this comprehensive look on the Aleph-Tav question, it makes a lot of sense when explained so clearly!
    Thanks for another great newsletter,

  2. Jan Sytsma

    Another great newsletter Joe that brings so much together. Beautifully written. Funny though, you didn’t bring out what I saw when reading this email. Funnier yet is how Yehovah will use a teaching to impress a different thing upon different people…unique to what that person needs. This is what I see in this teaching; just something that put it together for me.
    The FIRST occurrence of Serpent in Scripture sets the foundation for future occurrences. This being:
    Gen 3:1 And the na?ash was more crafty than all the lives of the field which ???? Elohim had made, and he said to the woman, “Is it true that Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of every tree of the garden’?”
    Gen 3:2 And the woman said to the na?ash, “We are to eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden,
    Gen 3:3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, Elohim has said, ‘Do not eat of it, nor touch it, lest you die.’ ”
    Gen 3:4 And the na?ash said to the woman, “You shall certainly not die.
    H5175 – naachash naw-khawsh’ From H5172; a snake (from its hiss): – serpent.
    H5172 – nachash naw-khash’ A primitive root; properly to hiss, that is, whisper a (magic) spell; generally to prognosticate: – X certainly, divine, enchanter, (use) X enchantment, learn by experience, X indeed, diligently observe.
    Initially, I was seeing the serpent masquerading as an angelic being. Therefore a snake coiled around a tree that was shining so brightly and talking Scripture to her that she thought she was communicating with Yahovah or an angel he sent to her. She would never fall for a talking snake.
    This is why I could never make the connection of why Yahovah would tell Moshe to raise a snake on a pole. That is equating Yeshua with Satan from this and many other passages about the serpent.
    Then the passage of Moshe and the rod becoming a snake brought it together for me.
    The FIRST thing that happens is the story with Eve, which the Israelites of this time likely remember or have been retaught it by Moshe and the elders.
    The SECOND thing we see is the Israelites are told (if they didn’t see firsthand) how Aron’s rod turned into a snake by the power of this Elohim that sent Moshe (and Aaron) to lead them out. They now see THIS God created a snake greater than the Egyptian Magician gods power over the snakes they create. They are seeing Yahovah as the greater Elohim. His power is greater. The snake he created was more powerful. They are no doubt quite familiar with poisonous snakes during their tenure in Egypt. Vipers are already a god to the Egyptians so Yah’s choice of turning a rod to a snake, was already for the purpose of attacking their gods.
    The THIRD thing that happened was the Exodus. They see the waters of the Red Sea split and lifted up high for them to walk through. Their deliverance came through the waters being lifted up by this Elohim that is with Moshe leading them out. Then, the waters come down and bury the pursuing Egyptian army. The waters swallowed up the army. JUST as they heard or saw when the snake of Aaron’s rod swallowed up the other snakes.
    The FOURTH thing that happens is they complain of lack of food and water and accuse Yahovah of bringing them out to the desert to kill them. Yah responds by sending snakes to bite them and many die. They NOW make the connection AGAIN that THIS ELOHIM has the power to send snakes out to kill them if they complain against Him. The same Elohim that just delivered them through the lifted up waters and who created snakes to show He was more powerful than their gods of Egypt. Like you said, He can send “good snakes” or “bad snakes”….all in judgement. Just depends which side you’re on.
    Bemidbar/Numbers 21:5 And the people spoke against Elohim and against Moshe: “Why have you brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no food and no water, and our soul loathes this worthless bread.” 6 So YHWH sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel died. 7 Therefore the people came to Moshe, and said, “We have sinned, for we have spoken against YHWH and against you; pray to YHWH that He take away the serpents from us.” So Moshe prayed for the people. 8 Then YHWH said to Moshe, “Make a fiery serpent, and set it on a pole; and it shall be that everyone who is bitten, when he looks at it, shall live.” 9 So Moshe made a bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze serpent, he lived.
    The FIFTH thing is now they repent of rebelling and complaining against THIS Elohim who is leading Moshe and bringing about their deliverance. They’re seeing His Power.
    The SIXTH thing is the command to make a fiery serpent on a pole so Moshe did just that. He used bronze / copper to wrap around a pole and to have it lifted up.
    NOW, THIS is what I perceive went through their minds and what brings this together for me:
    First, they look up and see this shiny thing wrapped around a pole. This would remind them of the snake that impersonated an angelic being causing Eve to be deceived. The bad snake. Then they would remember the current events of THIS ELOHIM who created a snake that was greater than the snakes (which are gods) and their magician gods from Egypt. If THIS Elohim could create a snake capable of devouring all their snakes, then surely this “snake” can heal and deliver me just as Moshe said. Then they notice how this snake is lifted up and looking down upon them to bring healing….deliverance…life to them. Just like the waters of the Red Sea from a short time ago. The image of the copper is more significant as an angelic being lifted up and looking over them. The image of a snake is more subdued. Just copper wrapped around a pole, but the reminder of snakes is clear due to this command coming in direct response to the biting vipers. Next they start thinking of what Yah said in response to the incident with Eve. This brings the full understanding to them of linking the snake lifted up on a pole as a future Messiah.
    Gen 3:15 “And I put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed. He shall crush your head, and you shall crush His heel.”
    Now, to change the subject. I’m still confused over the tree or the cross. Didn’t they crucify him with outstretched arms and nail his hands to it? How do you do that with a tree unless they had side branches at right height. I still think it was a cross bar he carried and his arms outstretched on it and this was attached to the tree…pole. How do you explain tree? What did he carry if not a cross bar for the tree?

    • Ben

      Such great insights in this comment! From what I picked up in the newsletter, the cross is referenced as a tree because it’s made of wood, I think. It would be good to get clarification on this, though.

    • Joseph F. Dumond

      He carried a piece of wood that went across from one hand to the other hand. This is what He was nailed to. IT would then be hoisted up into the tree and affixed to the tree. His feet nailed to the tree. IN our other teaching about why Yehshua cursed the fig tree we show you that the fig tree represented the tree of good and evil. And YEhshua did not want to be hung on it so He cursed it and it died. This is the same tree that Adam and Eve ate from and used the fig leaf to cover themselves. Yes, this is all mythology. The Tree of Life is depicted as an Almond Tree. Aarons rod, the Menorah. Yehshua was hung on the tree of life, the Almond tree. And if you see them in Israel they have many main trunks going up. So it would be very easy to hang three men in one tree. We did this a few years ago as a test.

      • Barry Geerlings

        Who were the three men you hung in a tree as a test? 🙂
        hope they didn’t stay over night.
        thanks for a great article!

        • Joseph F. Dumond

          LOL We did stay overnight in that place but not on the tree. I and the other two men actually did hang from the tree. And I kept encouraging them to hang there longer. Do not get down. With most of our weight on our arms, it was very apparent to each of us just how painful this was to hang there after about 5 minutes all of us hurt and could not endure it more. Yehshua hung there from 9 AM until 3 PM when he died. 6 hours.
          And so you can rest at night, all three of us did were not affixed to the tree. Thanks for your concern though.

      • Ben

        Whoa — that makes so much intuitive sense!

      • Ben

        …Wait, did you actually hang three people on a tree a few years ago? ._.

        • Joseph F. Dumond

          Three of us went to the Almond trees that still grow in the same area where the crucifixion took place. We each reached up and held the tree limbs as though we were being crucified facing outwards and lifted our feet. And placed them against the tree. And we hung there for as long as we could take it. We also showed the group with us the stones in this area how they are like flint and how sharp they are. This demonstration also showed why one of the thieves cursed YEhshua and the other did not. the one would have been sheltered by the other two and the tree from them throwing the stone at them.

          • Ben

            Fascinating insight, thank you for sharing those details! That makes sense why one of the thieves would be frustrated if he was getting the stones tossed at him like that.

  3. Vk

    Many pennies dropping. Many puzzle pieces falling into place.
    I am exhorted by your humility to have read Ardell’s teaching and having allowed the Spirit to open the eyes of your understanding! May Yehova always protect you from being lifted up in pride.
    We love and appreciate you.

    This week I have been revisiting a sin I was involved with when in the regular church and that sin was being taught to genuflect. Then you put up this post! The worship aspect is very compelling to understand as us moderns don’t get it so easily, that it is perceived as worship of an idol (false go -between) and not what El asks for. And here you present it, again.
    One thing that I am having difficulty with is understanding how we relate to Yeshua in the oneness, when other scripture places him as separate as well as the complete likeness of God.
    I have a question with one of the scripture places. If it is only one God & Yeshua is God how is it that the light in the New Jerusalem is from God and the Lamb simultaneously? I get confused with this. And if the Alev Tav is the 853 Ayth and the first born of creation and sits at the right hand of God how can we see this as only one. Just like the verse when Yeshua has everything placed under his feet in submission and then Yeshua places himself and all he has subdued under the Father’s authority? These verses make me think they are separate but the same in purpose and intent having the same heart like the echad of covenant between David & Shaul’s son who handed over his weapons etc to David in saying that the Kingship would be Have you any insights? I liken the Ayth to the full expression of God in human form so that we can communicate with God because of our limitations due to sin… the mediator between mankind and the absolute inexpressable greatness of God’s entirety but the bridge to grasp hold of the eden plan of redemption being genesis again on the 8th day for those who pass the tests and overcome.
    Thanks Jo.

    • Joseph F. Dumond

      Shalom Fin, take a look at this article about the Zeroah of Yehovah and see if this helps you to understand. This is very difficult subject to grasp especially after so many years of being taught something else. Pray about it to Yehovah and ask Him to show you in the scriptures the proof you need to understand. He does listen and does answer your prayers.

    • Ben

      I used to get really confused about that “being in two places at once” idea, too, until I learned about some ground-breaking scientific research being done about higher-order spacial dimensions (such as 1D, 2D, and 3D, going on to 4D… 8D…) which is a really fascinating topic. I recently found a video summarizing the whole subject really well (and it’s also very entertaining!):

      • Victoria Koorzen

        Oh my! I found that video só fascinating. I failed Math at school, but marvel at the capacity of understanding of these men. And there is so much more to learn yet. However, most wonderful is the fact that Yehovah created our universe to mathematical precision down to the umpteenth dimension. We are only starting to discover it now . . .

        • Ben

          I know right? It’s so cool!!! Biology’s like that too with how intricately complicated organisms are, it’s so fascinating how the instructions for any living thing are organized so neatly into DNA. Really, really amazing.

    • FJ

      Thankyou Jo
      have read and will read again after prayer. The righteous have always believed in God’s Salvation. Will this help the Jews to accept the Messiah we as ‘ Christian’s have distorted so much…I wonder….?
