Who has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed

Isaiah 53:1

There is a rich treasure in this little verse.  There are flawless diamonds to be discovered, but it’s only seen through Hebrew eyes.

Are you ready to dig?  Take off your American shades, your Greek mindset, and grab your Strong’s concordance.  Let’s go treasure hunting.

As I’ve told you before, Holy Spirit is my editor in Chief.  He is the One Who gives me my assignments.  This past weekend, He surprised me with a request to dig into Isaiah 53, “but,” He said,  “you are to only take a word a day.”  🙂  In the past, He gave me assignments and I’d work night and day until done. Yet, in the end, I was exhausted and barely tasted the ‘food’ He’d prepared for the journey.

That said, we will look at two words I’ve excavated this week–ARM (of the LORD) and REVEALED.

The word ARM in Isaiah 53:1 is Strong’s #2220 and it comes from primitive root #2232.  #2220 means the arm as stretched out, force, help, mighty, power, shoulder, strength.

Arm#2232 is the primitive root and it sounds like this: zaw-rah’ (the ‘a’ here is like the ‘a’ in ‘at’); It means to sow; to disseminate (publicize, announce, declare, advertise), plant, fructify:—bear, conceive seed, set with a sower, yield.

The letters from right to left:

ZAYIN 7 = completeness, Perfection, Fullness.  Means: Sword of the Spirit, Dagger, Weapon or Seed  —  ZAYIN tells us:

Yeshua is Perfect and the Fullness of the Godhead is now in Him.

Yeshua is the Sword of the Spirit–the Word of God.

He is also the Seed of the Woman Who bruised the head of the serpent.

Hebrews 4:15 we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin (perfect).

Colossians 2:9-10 For in Him dwells all the Fullness of the Godhead bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.

Ephesians 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God

Genesis 3:15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.

Galatians 3:16  Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ.

RESH 200 = Insufficiency, Poverty. Picture: Head Means: Head, Chief, Beginning, Highest, Most Important, a Person, Human Reasoning vs. Obedience.   —   RESH tells us:

Yeshua is the Head of the church and the Head of the Body.

Colossians 1:18 And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.

AYIN 70= Completion of time.  Means:  Eye, to See, Understand, Experience, or to be Seen, Window of the soul-good or bad (made of a Zayin and an elongated Yod=Word and Spirit)    —     AYIN tells us:

Yeshua came in the Completion of time as the Word and the Spirit because He Saw and Understood our need for a Savior.

Galatians 4:4-5 when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.

This Arm to be revealed is none other than Yeshua.  Here’s a summary of our discoveries about Him:

Yeshua never sinned and the Fullness of the Godhead is now in Him.

Yeshua is the Sword of the Spirit–the Word of God.

He is also the Seed of the Woman Who bruised the head of the serpent.

Yeshua is the Head of the church and the Head of the Body.

Yeshua came in the Completion of time as the Word and the Spirit because He Saw and Understood our need for a Savior.

In just three Hebrew letters we unearth some amazing treasure.  Note also that this is the arm of the LORD–the only self-existent eternal God of all gods and Lord of all lords.   Just this one word gives us a lot of revelation about Who He is and what He’s done for us before we ever read another word.

Let’s look at that verse again:

Who has believed our report?
And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed? 

 We all know what revealed means, right?  I think you will be surprised.

REVEALED is Strong’s #1540  revealed  gâlâh, gaw-law’; a primitive root; to denude (especially in a disgraceful sense); by implication, to strip captives in exile; to reveal:— advertise, appear, disclose, discover,  publish, remove, reveal, shew, tell, uncover.

When we look at the letters individually something glorious is revealed:

Gimmel  3= Divine perfection  Means: Camel, Generous Rich man, To Lift up, to Give, to Benefit, to Toil

Yeshua is Divine Perfection and He is Generous

Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.

John 3:16 God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (And in His Son He gave us ALL we needColossians 2:9-10; 2 Peter 1:2-4 )

Lamed  30 =  Blood of Messiah, Dedication to a task.  Means: Staff, Goad or Stick, to Teach or Instruct, Authority, to Control, Urge Forward, a Tongue

Yeshua in Divine Perfection gave His life, triumphing over satan.(Colossians 2:15) He Dedicated Himself to the task and poured out His own Blood to set us free. (Ephesians 1:7) He took back the authority satan stole from us and returned it to us. (Luke 10:19)

 Hey  5 = Grace.  Means: Revelation – 5 is the number of Torah, Behold, Give Attention – (at the end of a word: comes from letter before)

Yeshua is the ultimate Revelation of Grace and truth.

Colossians 1:26-27 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. 

We are called and equipped to be like Him.  Consider these truths and spend some time with Holy Spirit this week.  There are likely areas in our lives still open to our cooperation for His transformation.

Shalom ♥
