The discrepancy about the ‘Vav’ or Paleo ‘Waw’ in the Sacred Name
There rages another oddity amongst Sacred Name interpreters regarding the 3rd letter of the Sacred Name. Judaism and Rabbinic interpretation proclaims a ‘Vav’ (6th letter of the Hebrew Alphabet – ‘v’ as in ‘vision’) while there is a major proportion of Messianic (Hebraic Restoration) commentators who proclaim it to be a ‘Waw’ according to the Paleo Hebrew ancient Alphabet – ‘w’ as in ‘wow’. Apart from the fact that the Hebrew Alphabet makes NO provision whatsoever for the ‘w’ (as in ‘wind’) letter or sound and that the ‘Vav’ is the most commonly used letter (and word, meaning ‘and’) in spoken Hebrew, the ‘Waw’ is almost unpronounceable.
In a unique oddity once more, the publishers of this Web Site have noticed the following consistent spiritual characteristic amongst promotors of the purported ‘Waw’ in the Sacred Name: they are generally totally opposed to Rabbinic authority and Halachic (traditional) Judaism. They cling to teachings that oppose peaceful reconciliation between Judah and the House of Israel and which reflect an arrogant spirit of ‘know it all’, consistently running down and rejecting the 3500-year old Academy of Torah higher learning of the Rabbis. In this way they eternalize the friction which obstructs peaceful reunion and thus the Final Redemption (Geulah in Hebrew). Those believers who accept and declare the ‘Vav’ in the Sacred Name, are generally receptive of and open to peaceful Reconciliation with Judah. They reveal a spirit of teachableness which lays the foundations for the Biblically prophesied re-uniting of the 2-Houses of Israel to establish the Kingdom of the God of Israel on earth.
CAUTIONARY NOTE: For every Truth that transpires, Satan stands ready with an alternative, to drag would-be over comers down into the Abyss again. Be warned, that this supposition of a probable dual meaning in both the Name of the Creator God as well as His Salvation Name, will be grabbed as support for their sick teaching, by promoters of the theory that “God in essence can be the Source of both Good and Evil”. These people obviously lack the true respect and love for the Impeccable and Holy One. The fact that, apart from being the Saviour to some people, God may also be the Judge and ‘disaster’ to those who oppose Him, does not make Him the source of that evil or disaster! This ‘theory’ goes even deeper, to an extent that we would refrain from even mentioning here – be warned! This will simply be another test of your True and unshakable Faith in His Holiness, which you will be amply rewarded for in His Kingdom.
So, don’t shy away from Knowledge which will set you free. The Truth shall certainly set you free. Simply cling to the admonition given in:
Phil 4:8 (KJV) “Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things” (and discard the rest!).
