DWELLING PRESENCE OF HANUKKAH

If a person searches out the concept of “dwelling,” you find an entry called “Shekinah” in the Jewish Encyclopedia. It says that Shekinah is the majestic presence or manifestation of God to “dwell” among men.

The word “shekinah” itself is taken from passages in Scripture that speak of God dwelling either in a Tabernacle, or among God’s people. It is especially said that God dwells in Jerusalem, on Mount Zion, and in the Temple itself. The Temple is called the “House of the Shekinah.” Remember this when you meditate on Scripture: “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? … Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:9,19-20 NKJV).

To be worthy of His Shekinah Glory, one had/has to be without sin. Before the Israelites sinned with the Golden Calf, the Shekinah rested on everyone; but when they did evil, the Shekinah departed or disappeared (Sotah 3b). Refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2013/12/17/to-dismiss-christ/ and http://wp.me/p158HG-Dx.

It is critical for all of God’s people to understand that Yeshua (Jesus) did not celebrate Christmas. Yeshua celebrated Hanukkah – The Feast of Dedication. “Now it was the Feast of Dedication in Jerusalem, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon’s porch” (John 10:22-23 NKJV). Hanukkah’s history reveals that it celebrates the overthrow of the defilement of Christmas in the hearts of His people and the cleansing of their bodies. Or in other words, it sets the stage so that the Shekinah can rest in His Temple… you and I.

The word “dwell” in the Hebrew text is said to be rendered “let the Shekinah rest.” Take for example: “Have them construct a sanctuary for Me, so that I may dwell among them” (Exodus 25:8). Although the word “Shekinah” is not found in Scripture, its concept clearly is. Most believe that the term “shekinah” was coined as a noun, as a derivation of the Hebrew verb “shakan,” which simply means to take up residence for a long time in a neighborhood. It is a protracted dwelling in the midst of a group of people.

The “Shekinah” Presence was not God, but an ethereal (yet physical) manifestation of His actual Presence among His people. The Shekinah Dwelling Presence appears first at the crossing of the Red Sea where the Pillar of Fire by night and the Pillar of Cloud by day protected the Israelites from the pursuing Egyptians. The nation of Israel was led by the Shekinah for 40 years in the Wilderness. Then, the Holy Presence of the Omniscient God inhabited the Tent of Meeting, Wilderness Tabernacle, Solomon’s Temple, and Messiah Yeshua Himself.

We will be exploring all this in STM’s “Dwelling Presence: Online Interactive Conference,” which starts tonight. If you are interested in joining the revelatory fun, check out https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2021/10/15/dwelling-presence-online-interactive-class/.

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.

You and I can personally choose to engage the essence of Messiah Yeshua – the Word of God – contained within the Hebrew Living Letter™ TSADIK. With that in mind, you may be interested in Sapphire Throne Ministries anointed set of Hebrew Living Letter™ Flash Cards.
