Pondering the Lamed-Kaf in the sequence of the Aleph Bet
- with a witness in scripture
Lamed-Kaf > TEACH > TUTOR > PREPARE > INSTRUCT > NURTURE – Yeshayahu/Isaiah 29:1-24 — 30:18-22, Debarim/Deuteronomy 32:46-47, Yeshayahu/Isaiah 42:16, Marqos/Mark 10:18
Lamed – His Instructions, His Governing (The Teacher; of Righteousness) – The Golden Scepter… extended for our ‘pardon’… The ‘good seed’ planted… To Teach; guiding how to walk in The Path of Righteousness (He is Righteousness; Manifested in ‘a body’ – The Man: Mashiach Yahusha… Who said Follow Me, The Good Shepherd.. The Way, Truth, Life.. (one had to ‘reach out’ and ‘touch’… The Golden Scepter – Attachment – Connection… the ‘process’ of entering-in according to Instruction – through The Instructor/Teacher/Shepherd)
Kaf – His ‘Lines to Follow’ – His flawless Pattern; communicated, given in a diagram/panorama, and made ‘manifest’! (MANIFEST: PHYSICAL > IN ACTION > BREATHING > WALKING > TALKING) … And THE WORD became flesh – and pitched ‘HIS TENT’ among us’… HIS TENT: MISHKAN/DWELLING PLACE… THE PATTERN GIVEN ON THE MOUNTAIN – ‘MAKE IT EXACTLY SO’..
Woe to Ari’ĕl, to Ari’ĕl, the city where Dawiḏ dwelt! Add year to year, let festivals come around. “And I shall distress Ari’ĕl, and there shall be mourning and sorrow, and it shall be to Me as Ari’ĕl. And I shall encamp against you all around, I shall lay siege against you with a mound, and I shall raise siege-works against you. And you shall be brought low and speak out of the ground, and your speech shall be low, out of the dust. And your voice shall be like a medium’s, out of the ground, and your speech whisper out of the dust. But the crowd of those strange to you shall be like fine dust, and the crowd of the ruthless ones as chaff blowing away. And it shall be in an instant, suddenly!” You shall be visited by יהוה of hosts with thunder and earthquake and great noise, with whirlwind and storm, and flame of devouring fire. Then the crowd of all the gentiles who fight against Ari’ĕl, even all who fight against her and her stronghold, and distress her, shall be as a dream of a night vision. And it shall be as when a hungry man dreams, and see, he eats; but he awakes, and his being is empty; or as when a thirsty man dreams, and see, he drinks; but he awakes, and see, he is faint, and his being is longing. Thus shall the crowd of all the gentiles be who fight against Mount Tsiyon. Pause and wonder! Blind yourselves and be blind! They are drunk, but not with wine; they stagger, but not with strong drink. For יהוה has poured out on you the spirit of deep sleep, and has closed your eyes, the prophets. And He has covered your heads, the seers. And the entire vision is to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men give to one who knows books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I am unable, for it is sealed.” And the book is given to one who does not know books, saying, “Read this, please.” And he said, “I have not known books.” And יהוה says, “Because this people has drawn near with its mouth, and with its lips they have esteemed Me, and it has kept its heart far from Me, and their fear of Me has become a command of men that is taught! Therefore, see, I am again doing a marvelous work among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder. And the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, and the understanding of their clever men shall be hidden. Woe to those who seek deep to hide their counsel far from יהוה, and their works are in the dark; they say, “Who sees us?” and, “Who knows us?” How perverse of you! Should the potter be reckoned as the clay? Should what is made say of its Maker, “He did not make me”? And what is formed say of Him who formed it, “He did not understand”? Is it not yet a little while, and Lebanon shall be turned into garden land, and garden land be reckoned as a forest? And in that day the deaf shall hear the words of the book, and the eyes of the blind shall see out of gloom, and out of darkness. And the meek ones shall increase their joy in יהוה, and the poor among men rejoice in the Set-apart One of Yisra’ĕl. For the ruthless one is brought to naught, the scorner is consumed, and all who watch for evil shall be cut off, those who make a man to sin in word, and lay a snare for him who reproves in the gate, and turn aside the righteous with empty reasoning. Therefore thus said יהוה, who ransomed Aḇraham, concerning the house of Yaʽaqoḇ, “Yaʽaqoḇ is no longer put to shame, no longer does his face grow pale. For when he sees his children, the work of My hands, in his midst, they shall set apart My Name, and set apart the Set-apart One of Yaʽaqoḇ, and fear the Elohim of Yisra’ĕl. And those who went astray in spirit shall come to understanding, and the grumblers accept instruction.” Yeshayahu/Isaiah 29:1-24
Isa 30:18 And therefore יהוה shall wait, to show you favour. And therefore He shall be exalted, to have compassion on you. For יהוה is an Elohim of right-ruling. Blessed are all those who wait for Him. For the people shall dwell in Tsiyon at Yerushalayim, you shall weep no more. He shall show much favour to you at the sound of your cry; when He hears, He shall answer you. Though יהוה gave you bread of adversity and water of affliction, your Teacher shall no longer be hidden. But your eyes shall see your Teacher, and your ears hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the Way, walk in it,” whenever you turn to the right, or whenever you turn to the left. And you shall defile the covering of your graven images of silver, and the plating of your moulded images of gold. You shall throw them away as a menstrual cloth and say to them, Be gone!” Yeshayahu/Isaiah 30:18-22
he said to them, “Set your heart on all the words with which I warn you today, so that you command your children to guard to do all the Words of this Torah. For it is not a worthless Word for you, because it is your life, and by this Word you prolong your days on the soil which you pass over the Yardĕn to possess.” Debarim/Deuteronomy 32:46,47
Isa 42:16 “And I shall lead the blind by a way they have not known – in paths they have not known I lead them. I make darkness light before them, and crooked places straight. These matters I shall do for them, and I shall not forsake them.
Mar 10:18 And יהושע said to him, “Why do you call Me good? No one is good except One – Elohim.
