I couldn’t begin the study of Daniel, and the Hebrew letters again, without taking the time to stop and look through the window of “Hey”
“Hey” is the letter that drew me in to behold the beauty Grace in the Hebrew letters. When the “hey” is added to a word, miracles begin to open up.
In Genesis 17, God added the “hey” to Abram’s name, changing it to Abraham, and the “hey” to Sarai, changing her name to Sarah. In Chapter 18, Abraham is speaking with God as a friend, and promises Sarah a son the following year. They found favor or “Hey” in the eyes of God.
The fifth time (the number for “Hey”) Noah’s name is mentioned, it say’s “Noah found favor (or grace in Hebrew) in the eyes of the Lord. Genesis 6:8
The fifth time Ruth’s name is mentioned, “…after him in whose sight I shall find favor.” Ruth 2:2 Ruth marries the richest man in town and is listed in the genealogy of Jesus.
The fifth time David’s name is mentioned, “Let David remain in my service, for he has found favor in my sight.” 1 Samuel 16:22 the chapter Samuel the prophet anointed David to one day be king.
New Testament – “…five roofed colonnades” where Jesus healed the man who had be an invalid for thirty-eight years, in the Fifth Chapter of John!
and Jesus feeds Five Thousand with Five “…barley loaves” in John 6:9
As you can see, beholding the fifth letter “Hey” captures my attention!
Thank you for joining me as we “look” at the Hebrew letters. May you be blessed with the blessings of Abraham, as a friend, beholding the beauty of Grace and Favor in the window of the fifth letter in Hebrew “Hey”.
Tomorrow… Part II of Daniel in the window of Grace – Day Five “Hey”
“And God gave Daniel favor…” Daniel 1:9
