The Sign of Waw-Taw
Marked for Salvation or Destruction?
The Hebrew word for "sign" is taw, which is also the last (22nd) letter of the Hebrew alphabet. In the older Paleo-Hebrew alphabet this was a pictograph in the shape of a Calvary cross. When you spell out the whole word, taw-waw or 'tw' you end up with a mark consisting a Cross and a Peg or Nail. Note that Hebrew reads from right to left (see illustration at top). In other words, Yahweh's righteous talmidim or disciples are marked on their foreheads with a nail and cross.
"Yahweh said to him, 'Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a mark (taw) on the foreheads of the men who sigh and cry over all the abominations that are done within it.' To the others He said in my hearing, 'Go after him through the city and kill; do not let your eye spare, nor have any pity. Utterly slay old and young men, maidens and little children and women; but do not come near anyone on whom is the mark (taw); and begin at My sanctuary.' So they began with the elders who were before the temple" (Ezek.9:4-6, NKJV).
It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out why Yahweh used this particular mark. Only those who have the Mark of the Nail-and-Cross are delivered in a time of great apostacy and wickedness...and in the eternities.
But there is more. Taw is the last letter of the Hebrew word emet meaning 'truth' and as scholars in the past have noted, emet is made up of the first, middle and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet, viz. alef, mem and taw. Interestingly, the Hebrew word sheqer, meaning wickedness or sin, is made up of the three penultimate letters of the Hebrew alphabet - the 19th, 20th and 21st letters.
How interesting it is, then, that the three Pilgrim Festivals - Pesach, Shavu'ot and Sukkot occupy the first, middle and last positions in the Creation Calendar too. The true talmidim (disciples) of Yahweh therefore have a mark that not only indicates they are followers of the crucified Messiah Yah'shua (Jesus), nailed to the Cross of Calvary, but that they also follow all Emet (Truth) which itself spells out the Alpha-Omega or Alef-Taw, which is Messiah, as represented by the Prilgrim festivals that represent initial trusting, obeying Torah, and overcoming to become the Sukkot Bride!
This is the only mark that can save a soul. Are you trusting in Yah'shua (Jesus) as your crucified and resurrected Master and Deliverer? Are you obeying His mitzvot (commandments)? And are you overcoming through the blood of the Lamb so that you may be spotless and spared from the death that awaits the rebellious and unclean?´If not, embrace the Waw-Taw today and save yourself and your family!

Comments from Readers
"Wonderful in the power of the Inward Man!... getting to everything is in us...the Whole Kingdom of Yah to the 'jot' and 'tittle'... The wall of separation is represented by the "Hhets" wall where Samech "Sin" exists... outside the garden of Eden in this old man's realm... We get the conception of confessing together that Quickening Spirit of Life as He in the mouth that close, to become a new man and grow hanging on to the umbilical cord / Tzit-Tzit of our Savior in the womb of the New Wineskin. That becomes a relationship of Faith'ing His Word that cannot be described by mere words! We just have to get it for ourselves. That wall of enmity is blown down by the Blood of the Lamb! We become betrothed as One. Yahushua is the whole Aleph-Taw Aleph-Mem-Taw Emet "Truth" of Yahuwah as the "M"ayim water of that flowing truth causes filling of that righteousness to never thirst again. Hunger for righteousness "of the whole Emet" gets filling to never know wantonness ever again! A never ending flow of love in the whirlwind. Yahushua is the root holding together the Branches of the whole Y! "I AM" "Emet" is ONE Whole Emet!! With the name of the Truth in "I AM" Yahushua as I and my Father are One. From prophecy, the truth name at a higher level is eventually used to crush the Whole Serpents head and we are set free!!! Individual for 6000 years now to eventually we get totally out of here in the Progression'ing of everything gets to a higher level! SIN does not exist in ONE!! The individual battle...the battle of the whole! Remez. Is won! Paul's thorn he was referring to is the "Samech" of the whole. The original cannot ever exist in ONE Yah is One Yah! We're getting very close! Remez. Shalom!! Blessings! A great Day! The "i" gets chopped off and poked out of Dan 7. And what a day that in becom'ing is!" (RDR, USA, 30 November 2011)
"With reading this, some thoughts I had come up with this was those who received the 'taw' or mark of the nail and the cross were also those who by Elohim’s grace had truly been crucified with Messiah, and who’s lives were marked with the nails and the cross, and dying to self and being made alive to Elohim… Otherwise, thought with taw being the last letter of the Hebrew aleph-bet, of when Yah’shua was on the cross, and in the last moments He said it “It is finished”… and where this is also a mark of those who’s lives and beings have been marked by the finished work of Elohim and Messiah at the cross! Elohim is so very good to us!" (DP, South Africa, 30 November 2011)
