This week we start reading the Torah all over again - Torah, written by Moshe
(Moses) consists of the first five Books of the Bible, which contain YHVH's first
Divine Instructions in Righteousness.

Creation of the Word


It states in Geneses that YHVH spoke everything into
existence when He created the world.
Q - Have you ever thought about what happened before
the first creation word was spoken?
Prior to the physical Creation was the creation of the
Language and prior to that was the creation of the
Aleph-Bet. In order to speak everything into Physical
existence, something had to happen in the Spiritual, a
Spiritual Creation process if you like, in a view to
manifest the heavens and the earth, as we know it.
Q What existed before the Heavens and the Earth
were created?
To answer this question, we have to look at the first
verse in the Bible to see what existed prior to creation and how the physical
realm came into being.
Gen 1:1 In the beginning Elohim created the heaven and the earth
In Hebrew it reads (from right to left):

Brysheet bara Elohim et ha-shamayim vet ha-arets.

www.hasophim.com 1
Creation consists of 7 days and the first verse consists of 7 words. In the middle
of these 7 words, we find a word et that is not translated in our English Bibles.
The word et consists of two Hebrew letters, Aleph-Tav ta that represents
the Aleph-Bet or the Hebrew Alphabet that has 22 letters. The first letter of the
Hebrew Alphabet is the Aleph a and the last letter is the Tav t. This
not only represents the Aleph-Bet, but the whole Hebrew Language
contained in these 22 letters, so if you refer to the Aleph-Tav, you include
all the letters or all the words that has been spoken by YHVH. Yshua is
the Aleph-Tav (Alpha & Omega), Who is the Word of YHVH, through
Whom the heavens and the earth have been created.

John 1:1-4 In the beginning (Bresheet) was the Right in Hebrew means
Word (et), and the Word (Aleph-Tav) was with Spiritual and everything on the
Elohim, and the Word (Yshua) was Elohim. 2 The Right comes from above where
same was in the beginning with Elohim. 3 All things YHVH is. Left in Hebrew
were made by Him; and without Him was not represents the physical, His
anything made that was made. 4 In Him was life; Creation and where we are.
and the life was the light of men.
The first verse in Gen 1:1 can be placed on the Menorah pattern with the
Aleph-Tav or Messiah on the Middle Branch which is the trunk of the tree
where all the words hangs from, to the left (wisdom regarding the physical),
and words to the right (knowledge regarding YHVH and the spiritual).
This picture is used in the
explanation of the
Commandments of YHVH
in Matt 22:38-39; where
love is the middle branch of
the Menorah, and the rest
of the commandments are
the branches on either side
of this tree, Who is
Messiah.
This symbolism is also found in John 15:5 where Messiah says that He is the
Vine, and from Him comes the branches, He is the One that gives life and
without Him, we can do nothing, and in relation to His Word and Creation,
without Him there will be nothing. He is the Life-giving Source, and everything
came from Him and is sustained by Him.
Col 1:17 He is before all things, and in Him all things are held together.
If you want to know Him, then you have to look for Him in nature (His Creation)
and His Word, because those two things came from Him and contains
information about Him. When we look at the Menorah Pattern representing Gen
1:1 we find three things on the right, or spiritual side; timestamp (b-rysheet - in
the beginning, before time), creative force (bara created) and Creator (Elohim
Gods).
On the right-hand side we have Elohim with His creative power before
everything existed, even time. Then on the left-hand side we have the things
that flowed through from the right, through the Aleph-Tav (Yshua).

www.hasophim.com 2
Yshua (Aleph-Tav) is in the middle, Who is the Word through Whom everything
was spoken into existence. Everything on the left in the physical realm came
into existence from the right or spiritual through the One who connects the two
realms and the medium is Words. Yshua is the Beginning and the End, the One
that existed before time and before creation, before the First Coming, He is the
One that will exist after YHVH restored His Creation back to Himself after His
Second Coming.
The seven words from above; Barasheet bara Elohim et hashamaim vet
haeretz provide the foundation for the entire Scripture.

In the Beginning
Gen 1:1 starts with the word bresheet, and the
Torah Scroll text has no vowels, and allows
different ways to parse this word. We will look at
three ways there maybe more; Bresheet,
Barasheet and Barasheet.

Bresheet: tysarb is the usual meaning of


the word in the beginning, although it would be more accurate to translate it in
a beginning.

Barasheet: tysarb If you take the word for "son" in Hebrew (bar) rb
and the word for "make, appoint" (asheet) tysa and put them together, you
have the first word of the Scriptures: "in the beginning" (barasheet). Combining
the two meanings of bar and Asheet gives us the mening or phrase, I will
appoint a son. This strengthens the parallel we have already noted in John 1,
and from the very first word of the creation story we get the hint that YHVH will
appoint a Son through Whom the redemption will come.

Barasheet: tysarb Bara arb is the second word of the Scriptures that
means, he created. Sheet tys is a variant of shesh ss or six. We
have to read through to verse 3 to see it, but one answer is six alephs a. There
are six alephs in the first three verses of the Hebrew text. Aleph sounds
exactly like eleph [la, which means thousand. In other words, six alephs
equal six thousand years. Two alephs during the darkness (verses 1-2) two
alephs where YHVH speaks (verse 3), and two alephs in let there be light
(verse 3). In other words, 2000 years of darkness till Abraham, 2000 years after
revealing His Torah, and 2000 years in the light of Messiah. Note the
progression from darkness to speech to light. According to the Rabbis, The
world is to exist for six thousand years; the first two thousand years are to be
void; the next two thousand years are the period of the Torah, and the following
two thousand years are the period of the Messiah.
So if we put them all together [Bresheet, Barasheet, Barasheet], we have:
In the beginning, YHVH appointed a Son, through Whom He actively created
man over six thousand years, where after He will complete man in Messiah.

7 Separated this day Blessed & Sanctified Fills this day with 7
from all other days - gave it Identity Himself and invite
made it Set Apart man to join Him.
On first 3 days YHVH separates things and on day 4, 5 and 6 He fills it with
things He creates. The Creation Process consists of four steps; Creation,
Separation, Naming and Filling.
1. Creation: Create something from nothing, originating in the mind of
YHVH You are created by being born into this world.
2. Separation: Dividing in order to multiply or separating with a view to
sanctify - cutting away that which is not part of the original design or plan
you are separated and connected to the waters above by being born
again.
3. Naming: Providing an Identity, Character and Purpose You receive a
new name or character through receiving the Word of YHVH, making it
part of your life.
4. Filling: Placing a Created item into the space or place that was
reserved for it to fulfil a particular purpose within creation. Filling is the
process that connects created things within the creation with each other
in order to form a unit (Echad) so that everything can exist in balance
within the rest of Creation You are filled with His Spirit and connected to
the other parts of the Body of Messiah through His gifting and now
become Echad with YHVH through His Spirit.

www.hasophim.com 4
As you can see, we as believers follow the same creation process in order to
become new creations and part of the household of YHVH, becoming one with
Him.
We have looked at the first verse in Genesis and how the seven Words fitted the
Menorah pattern; the same applies to the 7-day creation where each day can be
represented by each branch of the Menorah. The Seventh Day, which is the
pinnacle and foundation of Creation, fits the Middle Branch just like Yshua
(Aleph-Tav) Who is the
Centre of Creation. The
Seventh day is the day
we enter into His Rest
and can connect to the
Father through Messiah,
having a relationship
with Him.

Creation of Man
Gen 1:26, 27 And Elohim said, Let us make man in our
image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and
over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every
creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. 27 So Elohim
created man in his own image, in the image of Elohim
created he him; male and female created he them.

Image: tsalim ,lo that comes from the root word tsel that means shadow.
Tsalim up combining tsel with a mem, that means water. This means that
image is the combination of the two thoughts, a shadow and water.
This gives us the idea that the image of man is the shadow of
water or shadow in water. Our bodies is made up of 70% water,
and we are in essence a shadow in water, that represents His
Image. It is like having a three-dimensional shadow made up of water
(that can be unstable or distorted). The Light that comes from YHVH
cast this shadow upon the water that manifests His image as a
physical man. Man consists of a shadow and water.
Another way to look at the creation of man in the Image of YHVH, is
where YHVH formed man out of the earth and breathed into his
nostrils. This shows us that the creation of man into His Image comes
from the combining of two substances namely, ground and breath. This is
referred to as man becoming a living soul.
Ground connected to the Breath of YHVH (His Spirit) formed man into His
Image. Man consists of breath and ground.
Spiritual Insight: Ground: Man consists of four parts that makes up the
Image of YHVH manifested in man; the ground, that represents the physical
substance of man which is his physical body.

www.hasophim.com 5
Water: Then man consists of water, the main substance that is used to create
all life from. Water is the word mayim ,ym that consists of two mems
(water) and a yod y (Sprit or hand of YHVH). Water or mayim is the cross
between the physical and the spiritual, water being a physical substance as
well as a spiritual substance (waters above and waters below) with a yod or
hand of YHVH combining them. This hand is the intelligent force that holds
both these together to create the essence of life itself. Paul says in Col 1:17
that He (Yshua) holds everything together with Himself. This what we
perceive as our soul or consciousness or personality.
Shadow: The third part man consists of is a shadow. The idea of the shadow
is revealed reading the verse in Heb 8:5 that states that a shadow is a copy of
heavenly things and a pattern that was revealed on Mt Sinai. We know he is
referring to the pattern of the Tabernacle, but this is the place words
revealed the many shadows or patterns of things that exist in the heavens.
Shadows are the medium revealing the real just like word reveal the real
which is the truth. The shadow represents the Words of YHVH that cast His
Image in us and through us. The shadow represents His Word or Truth,
Messiah in us.
Breath: The fourth part man consists of is breath. Breath is the word ruach
that refers to the Breath or Spirit of YHVH. This is the final component man
needs to be created in the Image of YHVH. The breath represents His Spirit
of Truth and the Spirit that makes us Holy, YHVHs Spirit in us.

Likeness: is the word demuth tvmd and the first two letters
makes the word dam ,d that means blood. The last three
letters make the word muth tvm that means death. When
your blood is outside of your body, it means that you are dead.

Spiritual Insight: Our initial state being in the image of


YHVH is still a fallen state and bound to death. To be created in the Likeness
of YHVH is to be set free from this fallen state, completing the Creation
process of man. For this to happen we need dam or blood to be added to
our fallen state or death, finalise the creation of man that will then be in His
Likeness, living forever. We know that this blood needed to accomplish this
needs to have eternal life already in it and that is why the blood of Yshua is
the only blood that can provide eternal life or finalise man into the Likeness of
YHVH.
What supports this thought is found in the name of the original man called
Adam. Adam: ,da consists of two parts, aleph a and dam ,d, Adam =
Aleph + Dam, where the Aleph represents YHVH in the flesh as symbolised
by an ox (strength), and dam means blood. Adam was created when YHVH
connected Himself (Apleh) with dam or blood in the physical. This means
that Adam (humanity) was only created in YHVHs likeness after Yshua shed
His blood on the stake (cross).

www.hasophim.com 6
A a Alpeh is represented by an ox and is the word shur rvs, that comes
from a root word that means to be sent, to travel. This word is first found in
Scripture in Isa 57:9 where it describes a messenger(s) far off, even to
descend to hell. This proofs that the Aleph, the strength of YHVH is Yshua
the Messiah, Who died and went into Sheol (death) to pay for our sin.

Gen 2:7 And the YHVH Elohim formed man of the dust of the ground,
and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living
being.
The phrase breath of life is the Hebrew word nashamah hmsn that means,
blast, inspiration, spirit, soul, that represents mans spiritual soul (spirit) that
connects with YHVHs Ruach (Spirit/Breath). Nashamah comes from the root
word nasam ,sn that means to pant, as a woman in labour. The phrase
living soul is the word nephesh that represents your physical soul, similar to
that of an animal. This means that the complete human or Adam consists of two
parts, the nephesh or physical soul, and the nashamah, or spiritual soul. Before
sin came into this world. When man fell, they lost their home (Garden) as well as
the glory that covered them (naked) and with this, lost their nashamah or
spiritual soul, that will only be given through the Spirit (Ruach) or breath of life.
Those who accept Yshua have the right to be breathed upon from the Creator
(Yshua) to receive this breath of life in order to restore mans nashamah.
John 20:21-22 Again Yshua said to them, Peace be with you. As the
Father has sent Me, so also I am sending you. 22 When He had said this,
He breathed on them and said, Receive the Holy Spirit.
The word nashamah hmsn (breath of life) contains the word shem ms
that means name or character. The breath that gave Adam life came from
YHVH or HaShem that included His Character and His Name. This means that if
we receive YHVHs Spirit, we receive a new character or new nature as Paul
describes it in Ephesians:
Eph 4:20-24 But you have not so learned Messiah, 21 if indeed you have
heard Him and have been taught by Him, as the truth is in Yshua: 22 that
you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows
corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, 23 and be renewed in the spirit of
your mind, 24 and that you put on the new man which was created
according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.

www.hasophim.com 7
The old man is your default fallen nature or nephesh that you are born with and
the new man is received through a creation process, received through the
impartation of YHVHs Spirit that elevates your nature to conform to His
Character which will express true righteousness and holiness, as Paul explained.
2 Cor 4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is
decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.
This new nature or new man (nashamah) does not replace the old nature
(nephesh) but exist alongside each other that gives you the potential to become
like Him (Shem Character) and is renewed day by day if you allow it.
Q How do I do this?
Through the renewed spirit of the mind (Eph 4:23) which is the renewing of the
mind (Rom 12:2) with the Word of YHVH that will transform you and give you
ability to discern good from bad, right from wrong and holy from profane.
The Nashamah is the potential that exist within you to be created into His
likeness. If you do not feed your Nashamah with the knowledge of the Truth
found in His Word, then it will not grow and become mature, and you will be
governed by your default operating system called the nephesh or fleshly soul
(old man / nature).

The Creation of Marriage


The woman was created from Adam and Adam was the
combination of what we know today as men and women.
Gen_1:27 And Elohim created (barah) man in His
image; in the image of God He created him. He
created them male and female.
Gen_2:22 And YHVH Elohim made (banah) the rib,
which He had taken from (laqach) the man, into a
woman. And He brought (bo) her into (El) the man.
Lets look at these verses and the meanings of these
words in Hebrew to see how this creation process
worked:
Created barah -arb - to create, shape, form.

Taken from laqach -xql - fetch, lay hold of, seize, receive, acquire,
buy, bring, reserve, marry, take a wife, snatch, take away
(rapture).
Made banah -hnb - to build, rebuild, establish, cause to continue

Brought bo -aib - go in, enter, go, come in, to be introduced

Into El -la Another shortened Name for Elohim

Spiritual Application: When you read all the meanings of some of these words
in this verse you come to the realisation that all these words describe the Work
of the Messiah when He is creating His Bride.

www.hasophim.com 8
The same two words, barah (created) and El or Elohim (God) is found here
as well as in Gen 1:1. Then we see from the word bo (brought) that Yshua
went into or came into this world to laqach or take a wife whom He will buy
(with His blood) and snatch Her away after He went back to banah build or
prepare a place for them. This is all part of His banah or rebuilding process to
establish the Garden of Eden state back to its former glory. With the Bride being
bara created or formed into His image and likeness, She can then bo enter
into His rest.
This is the why YHVH created man so that He can have a Bride that consists of
men and women who become one with Him in Messiah Yshua. We will now
take a closer look at the creation of the bond between man and the woman
known as the covenant that makes them Adam again, better known as
marriage.

The Foundation of Marriage


The Hebrew word for man is ish sya and the

Hebrew word for woman is isah hsa . When


YHVH made man and woman, they shared the same
foundational word, aleph-shin sa with a yod y
inserted, to create the man and a hey h inserted to
create the woman.
This process is depicted by this word picture:

as + hy

isah (Woman) ish (Man)


has sya
Men and woman are different each with a different role, but if you want to make
them the same, you have to remove both the yod and the hey from each one
of them that will result in fire or eesh sa. If you do not distinguish between
men and women, saying they are the same and connect them through same-
sex marriage, then you are playing with fire x 2 (eesh + eesh) and both will be
destroyed. This happens when you remove YHVH or yah (yod-hey) hy from
the relationship.
Yah or God removed
hy

eesh (Fire) eesh (Fire)


hsa sya

www.hasophim.com 9
A perfect relationship between man and woman is when they have YHVH in the
centre of their marriage, and He will be the One Who connects and holds them
together. Man and a woman are designed to be together, and that is the plan
and order of YHVH, for this reason, it is not good for a man or woman to be
alone.

Creating a Great Woman


The next two verses explain the creation of the woman
and what her role is:
Gen 2:18 And YHVH Elohim said, It is not good
that man should be alone; I will make (asah) him a
helper comparable to him.
Gen 2:22 Then the rib which YHVH Elohim had
taken from man He made (banah) into a woman, and He brought her to
the man.
We read in Gen 2:18 that YHVH made the woman so that man should not be
alone. Make is the word asah hsi that means; accomplish, advance,
bestow, bring forth, do, fashion, feast, labour, maintain, make, be, pare, bring
(come) to pass, perform, prepare, procure, provide, put. Aasah is first found in
Scripture in Gen 1:7 where YHVH made (asah) the firmament and divided the
waters above from the waters below. This supports the fact that the woman was
separated from Adam and of the same kind. We read that YHVH put Adam in
a deep sleep when He made the woman, which is a Covenant making scenario,
the same as with Abraham.
Rib is the word tsala ilo that YHVH took from man to make the woman.
Tsala means; rib, door (figuratively), side. Linking tsala to asah, where
YHVH created by separating the waters above from the waters below and the
waters from the land, confirms the idea that the woman came into being through
the separation of Adam into two equal parts, and not a small insignificant part
like the rib, as is translated in the English Bible.
It makes more sense using the right translation for tsala as
side, where YHVH used at least half of Adam to create (asah)
two equal parts, the woman and the man. This resulted in the
woman having the emotional and more spiritual part, being
different from man, leaving him with the more logical fleshly
half. Marriage is the process of restoring or re-creating Adam
back to his original form, combining back the two halves, man
and woman, making them one Adam or echad again.
We read in Gen 2:22 that YHVH made the woman. Made is the Hebrew word
banah hnb which means to build, rebuild, establish, cause to continue, to be
built up (a childless wife becoming a mother). The process that was used to
create the woman, as found in the meaning of the word banah, reveals some
of the womans attributes of why she was made alongside the man. We see
from the word banah that she is the builder, specifically building the house or
household that is the family unit, where she fills the house with her children.
This same concept is seen in the name of the woman, called Chavah, wrongly
translated as Eve, that means life giver.

www.hasophim.com 10
The womans function is to build the house or family and to be the one who
creates and manages the household. The husband is the provider for the
household as well as the provider of the seed that Chavah uses to create the
family.
Helper is the word ezer rzi that comes from the root word azar rzi that is
first used in Scripture in Gen 49:25 where Jacob blessed Joseph saying that
YHVH will help him and bless him with blessings from heaven, from above, from
the deep, from under, blessings of the breasts and of the womb. All these
blessings promised to Jacob is the blessings that comes from the woman,
blessings she blesses her husband with, being his helper and treasure.
Heaven shamayim ,yms Shin s (Warmth, Spirit) + Mayim
,ym (water words, relationship) The woman
blesses the man in a relationship that is founded
on the Word of YHVH (mayim) and the
enlightenment of His Spirit (shin) s. There is
nothing better is a married couple who share the
same faith and have the same spiritual
convictions. This makes them a strong Adam
that can be used by YHVH in a powerful way.
Above el li, from root word ala that means; bring, light, increase,
exalted. Ayin i is the light of the body, and she will see things in her
husband that he might not see yet and she will elevate him, praising and
motivating him, so that he can do what he can be the man he is
supposed to be and be motivated to do what needs to be done be a
leader (lamed l shepherd's staff) in the world (head and not the tail).
The Deep teh-hom ,vht from root word hum ,vh
that means murmur, roar, distress. She is his mirror,
and whenever she sees something that is not good in
her husband, she will reflect that back at him in the
form of murmuring or even in a challenging way to get
him back on track. In this way, she helps him not to go
astray and contribute to keeping him on the right path (if
she is a godly woman). She is the only one who really
knows him well enough and has the right to speak into his life, to help him
uncovering the deep dark parts in him that need changing.
Below rabats /br that means, to stretch oneself out, to lay down.
This is found in Gen 4:7 where YHVH told Cain that if he
does well (please, better, merry, good), then he shall be
accepted, if not, then sin is at the door that shall be his
desire. In relation to the marriage, this has to do with the
man that needs to do right with his wife, treat her well and
do good; then she will be the one laying down with him.
If not, the woman will not be blessing the man in that
regard and his desires will be stimulated beyond their
door, which is a sin.

www.hasophim.com 11
It is the husbands responsibility to make sure that he treats his wife the
way he should treat her, then she will willingly give herself and be a
blessing to him. If not, then the balance is disturbed in the relationship
and he will go else ware.
Breasts shade ds come from the root word shud dvs
that mean to be strong, to lay waste, to destroy. This reveals
the strength of a woman and her ability to defend her family and
even her husband. In Kingdom language, the woman
represents the army that protects the Kingdom of her king
(husband). We all know this is true when it comes to a mother
and her children and how she will defend them against any
attack or danger. She is a blessing to her husband in being
strong, defending her family, coming up for her husband when
he is attacked in his absence. This means that she does not
speak ill of him behind his back and she always speaks highly of him in
the presence of others.
Womb rach-am ,xr means womb as well as
compassion. It comes from the root word ra-cham ,xr
that means to love, love deeply, have mercy, be
compassionate, have tender affection, have compassion.
This reveals the deep and intimate marriage relationship
that exist between a man and a woman and the blessing of
children that results from this relationship.

Differences Between Men and Women

Generally speaking, men are physically stronger than women. They are guided
by logic where women are guided by intuition and emotions. Men are usually
more objective, women more subjective. Men are often realistic and women are
more idealistic. Many men are self-assured, while women frequently need
reassurance. Men seem to be more rigid in their thinking, while women are often
more adaptable and thus more susceptible to the influence of others.
At the same time, women are generally more sympathetic than men. They seem
to be especially interested in people, while men are more interested in things
and their work. The reason for this is because Adam was made from the ground
(things) and Eve was made from Adam (people).
The man is the hunter in the relationship, and the woman is the hunted. He is
the one who takes the first step, and she plays hard to get. Adam was made
outside the garden and Eve inside the Garden; this is why the man goes out to
work and the woman (generally) works inside the home, raising the children.
Adam is the worker and guardian while Eve supports him as the helper and
completer. He provides for the home while she completes the home through her
feminine touch that changes a house to a home for her family. This makes the
home the domain of the woman and he should let her rule over this area
because she is best equipped to do so. His role is to provide for the home so
that she can have the resources to fill the home with her touch of hominess.
The man is known to be the gender that has seed, and the woman is the one
who cultivates that seed and brings it to life through patience. A man has
millions of seed more than once a month while a woman only has one egg every
month, and without that egg, there cannot be life. In the same way, we know
that a man has a lot of plans, but it is that one plan that his wife will help him and
support him with so that he can provide for the family.
16 words describe the creation of Adam and 26 words describe the creation of
the woman. From a Hebraic point of view, we learn that women are more
complicated than men. The number 16 is made up of two times eight and the
number eight means life. It is the man that has seed that gives life, and he is
the life-giver or provider of the family. The number 26 is the same number of
Gods Name, hvhy Yod Hey Vav Hey. Each letter has a number and
counts up to 26, that is (10+5+6+5). This does not say that the woman is
superior to her husband, but it shows us that women are usually more spiritual
than men, where men are more concerned about things in this life.

If your husband is not as spiritual as you are and you struggle with Him to serve
YHVH, fear not, you are equipped as a woman to fulfil this role to help and
support Him to find YHVH and become the man of YHVH he is supposed to be.
Women are more complicated and actually superiorly made to men and females
have sexuality while a guy is just a guy. This does not make the man a lesser
gender, but only shows that he is more fortunate because he received the
better half.
