HEBREW LIVING LETTER ™ – TSADIK – THE DIVINE IMAGE

“The Divine Image – TSADIK” by Robin Main

“Righteous are You, O Lord, and upright are Your judgments. Your testimonies, which You have commanded, are righteous and very faithful. My zeal has consumed me, because my enemies have forgotten Your words. Your word is very pure; therefore Your servant loves it. I am small and despised, yet I do not forget Your precepts. Your righteousness is an everlasting righteousness, and Your law is truth. Trouble and anguish have overtaken me, yet Your commandments are my delights. The righteousness of Your testimonies is everlasting; Give me understanding, and I shall live” (Psalms 119:137-144 NKJV).

TSADE, TSADDE, TZASI, or TSADIK (צ) is the eighteenth letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet. It has the numerical value of 90. TSADIK (צ)’s ancient Hebrew pictograph is a fishhook. TSADIK (צ) symbolizes both the righteousness of God and devout human beings. The structure of the TSADIK living letter is formed from the combination of a bent NUN (נ‎) and a VAV (ו). NUN represents a humble and faithful servant bent in submission to the Crown VAV – the One who connects heaven and earth through His sacrifice on the Cross. Through this fundamental understanding of the shape of the TSADIK letter, we see that a righteous person is a faithful servant with their arms raised in humility before the LORD, which symbolizes a tzaddik’s extreme humble readiness to submit to the Divine. As such, many Hebrew Sages say that the Hebrew Living Letter ™ TSADIK represent the tzaddikim represent the tzaddikim – the righteous ones who are said to be the foundation of the earth. “When the storm passes through, the wicked are swept away, but the righteous are an everlasting foundation” (Proverbs 10:25).

God alone is perfectly righteous: “The Righteous and Upright One” (Deuteronomy 32:4). True righteousness can only exist in God and it is an integral part of Him. His righteousness is the only true foundation of the universe: “The heavens are Yours, the earth also is Yours; The world and all its fullness, You have founded them. … Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and truth go before Your face” (Psalms 89:11,14 NKJV). “The Lord reigns; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad! Clouds and darkness surround Him; Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne” (Psalms 97:1-2 NKJV).

A righteous person (tzaddik) illuminates the world by bringing God’s Dwelling Presence – His Shekinah – down to dwell among men. A tzaddik reflects God’s divine image (b’tzselem elohim). The Hebrew letter TSADIK (צ) begins the word “tzelem,” which is the divine image that God created man in their own image: “Then God said, “ ‘Let Us make man in Our image [tzelem], according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.’ So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:26-27 NKJV).

The Hebrew word tzelem is derived from tzel, which means “shadow.” Colossians 2:17 speaks of Biblical practices connected to both time and space (i.e., our physical existence), “which are a shadow of things to come; but the BODY IS OF CHRIST” (Colossians 2: 17 KJV). One of the interpretations of a “shadow of things to come” is the manifestation of Christ’s Body coming into its fullness as a perfect One New Man in Christ (Ephesians 2:15; Ephesians 4:13). This is the Metatron form of the Righteous Messiah with the fully mature Head of Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) connected to the fully mature members of His Body.

On the third day of Creation, God produced all forms of vegetation, including fruit bearing trees: Then God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees on the earth bearing fruit according to their kind with seed in them”; and it was so. The earth produced vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their kind, and trees bearing fruit with seed in them, according to their kind; and God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a third day” (Genesis 1:11-13 NKJV). The Hebrew word for “tree” is eitz, which is equivalent to 160. The tzelem divine image in which man was created on the sixth day of Creation also equals 160. With this in mind, let us meditate upon the number 160 breaks down to “7” (1 + 6 = 7), which is the number for perfection. “Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to PERFECTION” (Hebrews 6:1 NKJV). Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of PERFECTION. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful: (Colossians 3:12-14 NKJV).

The Hebrews call the palm tree the “king of trees” and say that the tsaddik will flower like a date palm: “The righteous shall flourish like a palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon” (Psalms 92:12 KJV).

A righteous person – a tzaddik – applies to human beings who emulate God’s righteousness by conducting themselves with integrity, truth, and justice. “Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous” (1 John 3:7 NKJV). The process of being a tzaddik is never-ending. Righteous people continually grow their Kingdom of God within until they become exactly like Yeshua.

RIGHTEOUS JUSTICE OF THE 7 SPIRITS OF GOD

One of the main purposes of the Seven Spirits of God is to facilitate righteous justice (judgment) in and through His maturing sons, which culminates in the oneness of His Bride with Christ: “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord. His delight is in the fear of the Lord, And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes, Nor decide by the hearing of His ears; But WITH RIGHTEOUSNESS HE SHALL JUDGE the poor, And decide with equity for the meek of the earth; He shall strike the earth with the rod of His mouth, And with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked” (Isaiah 11:2-4 NKJV).

Kingdom righteousness and justice are the foundation and substance for His royal habitation: “RIGHTEOUSNESS AND JUSTICE ARE THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR THRONE; Mercy and truth go before Your face. Blessed are the people who know the joyful sound! They walk, O Lord, in the light of Your countenance. In Your name they rejoice all day long, And in Your righteousness they are exalted” (Psalms 89:14-16 NKJV). “The Lord reigns; Let the earth rejoice; Let the multitude of isles be glad! Clouds and darkness surround Him; RIGHTOUSNESS AND JUSTICE ARE THE FOUNDATION OF HIS THRONE” (Psalms 97:1-2 NKJV).

The Seven Spirits of God, which are governors and tutors for His precious sons, specifically and uniquely show each believer how they can mature. These seven are intimately involved in the true and righteous judgments of the Lord: “The fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; THE JUDGMENTS OF THE LORD ARE TRUE AND RIGHTEOUS ALTOGETHER. More to be desired are they than gold, Yea, than much fine gold; Sweeter also than honey and the honeycomb” (Psalms 19:9-10 NKJV).

Righteousness and justice are key components for the good inheriting the earth and dwelling in it forever: “Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass. HE SHALL BRING FORTH YOUR RIGHTEOUSNESS AS THE LIGHT, AND YOUR JUSTICE AS THE NOONDAY. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, and forsake wrath; Do not fret—it only causes harm. For evildoers shall be cut off; But those who wait on the Lord, They shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while and the wicked shall be no more; Indeed, you will look carefully for his place, But it shall be no more. But the meek shall inherit the earth, And shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. The wicked plots against the just, And gnashes at him with his teeth. The Lord laughs at him, For He sees that his day is coming. The wicked have drawn the sword And have bent their bow, To cast down the poor and needy, To slay those who are of upright conduct. Their sword shall enter their own heart, And their bows shall be broken. A little that a righteous man has Is better than the riches of many wicked. For the arms of the wicked shall be broken, But THE LORD UPHOLDS THE RIGHTEOUS. The Lord knows the days of the upright, And their inheritance shall be forever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, And in the days of famine they shall be satisfied. But the wicked shall perish; And the enemies of the Lord, Like the splendor of the meadows, shall vanish. Into smoke they shall vanish away. The wicked borrows and does not repay, But THE RIGHTEOUS SHOWS MERCY AND GIVES. FOR THOSE BLESSED BY HIM SHALL INHERIT THE EARTH, But those cursed by Him shall be cut off. The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord, And He delights in his way. Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down; For the Lord upholds him with His hand. I have been young, and now am old; Yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken, Nor his descendants begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lends; And his descendants are blessed. Depart from evil, and do good; And dwell forevermore. For THE LORD LOVES JUSTICE, And does not forsake His saints; They are preserved forever, But the descendants of the wicked shall be cut off. THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL INHERIT THE LAND, AND DWELL IN IT FOREVER” (Psalms 37:3-29 NKJV).

Let us be blessed like the Father of Faith – Abraham – who was intimately acquainted with God Most High, Possessor of Heaven and Earth (Gen. 14:22). Let us keep the way of the Lord, to do justice and righteousness (Gen. 18:19)!

Give em heaven!!!
