Whom is this…Daniel’s Vision in Eighth Letter – Chet

Returning to see the beauty of Jesus illuminated

through the Hebrew Alphabet word pictures

in Daniel Chapter 10.


 

Our next letter is the Eighth letter Chet.

Chet - 8th Hebrew letter. Word Picture - Fence Meaning: - inner-room, protection, private, to separate, full-face
Chet – 8th Hebrew letter.
Word Picture – Fence
Meaning: – inner-room, protection,
private, to separate, full-face

The letter looks like a fence. Can you see it?

Protection, to separate…

So how the heck does it represent the “full-face”?

Well…

If the Nineteenth letter – Koof

Is the “back of the head” of a man or person”

Koof - 19th Hebrew letter Word Picture: Back of the head. Meaning: Behind, the last, to embrace a "knowing", final
Koof – 19th Hebrew letter
Word Picture: Back of the head.
Meaning: Behind, the last, to embrace a “knowing”, final

And

Reysh - 20th Hebrew Letter Word Picture: Head (of a man) Meaning: A person, the first, the highest, in the beginning.
Reysh – 20th Hebrew Letter
Word Picture: Head (of a man)
Meaning: A person, the first, the highest, in the beginning.

The Twentieth letter is the “side” view of a man or a person

Then in makes sense, “Chet” is the front view of a person.

And the person I am looking to find in Scripture is Jesus!


 

“…for she said to herself, “If I only touch His garment, I will be made well.”

Jesus turned, and seeing her He said,

“Take heart, daughter, your faith has made you well.” Matthew 9:21-22

Jesus turned and she saw His full-face.


 

Jumping into the 8th verse in Daniel…what did Daniel see?

Daniel retelling his story in Chapter 10…“So I was left alone and saw this great vision, and no strength was left in me. My radiant appearance was fearfully changed, and I retained no strength. Daniel Chapter 10: verse 8

Daniel saw the face of Jesus – private vision, full face of Jesus.

Chet - 8th Hebrew letter. Word Picture - Fence Meaning: - inner-room, protection, private, to separate, full-face

 Inner-room, 
private, full-face vision of Jesus!

In Scripture,

Protection – Eight people were saved aboard Noah’s Ark.

Covenant – Jesus was taken up to the Temple for dedication on the eighth day.

Kingship – David, a man after God’s own heart was the Eighth son of Jesse.

Joyous – the Feast of Booths is celebrated for Eight days.

Ministry – Aaron, the high priest was called by Moses on the Eighth day of preparation.


 

I pray as we continue through Daniel in Chapter 10, 

your eyes would be opened to see the 

beauty of Jesus in Old Testament prophecy of Daniel.


blessings,

denise

  1. At first when following I tried so hard to learn and remember the letters and realized and accepted I could not. But your wonderful love of Jesus and sharing the story is broken down so wonderfully by those letters. It’s so refreshing to read and understand Daniel presented this way. Thank you Denise for sharing your great gift. Ive been remolded by the potter for a new season of life.

  2. oh my goodness, Denise, this is so wonderfully amazing…and opens to me a whole new understanding of Jesus saying, “I am the door…and if anyone enters in, he shall go in and out and enjoy safe pasture…” John 10: 9-16.

    1. Isn’t it wonderful:) If everything is made through Him, in Him and by Him, surely the letters of His language are a reflection of Him:) I mulled this one for awhile because it is such a special letter. Walking tonight, thinking about how to explain, He opened my eyes to see the “fence” and gates right before me! Resting in Him!! Thank you for your encouragement and eyes to see:) blessings Susan!
