Gathering Manna: The Alephbet

DaletDalet = 4th letter of the Hebrew Alephbet, this letter forms the “d” sound

Dalet Word Picture:  In paleo, the Dalet is represented by a door, and it looks similar to a hanging tent door.  Doorways play an important role in Covenant, because at the doorways we have the threshold.  By crossing over a threshold, you enter into covenant with whatever house/covering you’ve just entered into.  That’s why it’s important to know and pay attention to what enters into your own homes, as well as what house you enter.  It’s covenants being cut!  This is also why the lamb’s blood in Egypt was placed upon the door ways, it was a threshold covenant being cut with Israel!  Remember, that Aleph represented the husband, the Bet represented the house as a whole with the husband and wife coming together as one, the gimmel represented the firstborn son born from this union (a shadow picture of the Messiah Yahshua), and now we have the dalet which continues to build on our understanding revealing that the firstborn son of this house would become the door enabling all of us that had been outside to once again be granted access into the house of Yahweh because He would enter into a threshold covenant with us!

John 9:10 – “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

Gematria/Numerical Value = 4

*4 = represents creation and all that is created, material things, and matter itself.  4 is also the number of division, there are 4 points of direction (North, South, East, & West), 4 seasons of the year (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter), and in Genesis 2 we read of one river coming out of the Garden and dividing into 4 heads: Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel, and Euphrates.  There were 4 head tribes that would lead out the camp of Israel, based on their camping locations: Dan (North), Judah (East), Reuben (South), & Ephraim (West); the eagle/serpent, lion, man, and ox.  These 4 symbols are also seen in connection with the 4 living creatures in Ezekiel 1:10 – “As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.” (*These 4 symbols also are seen in the Constellational Houses, the pattern continues!).  The number 4 also plays a prominent role in the book of Daniel – with 4 beasts/kingdoms prophesied.
