Vav = 6 and is the V or W of Hebrew
• VAV means “HOOK” or “NAIL” in Hebrew
• VAV is also a connecting word, mean “AND”. It shows how Yahshua HOOKS or CONNECTS Heaven and earth,
Yahweh (spelled YOD – HEY – VAV – HEY) and man, together as one.
Six is the number "number of a man" - MAN was created on the 6th day, and was given
6 days each week to labor, just as YHWH labored for 6 days in Creating our world (Gen.1:26-31 )
When God created man He said ( was very good) so 6 means man but God said His creation of Man was very good. So the 6th day was very good. The devil has perverted the #6 but Jesus reversed the curse so 6 has been redeemed .
YAHSHUA became a MAN in order to save MANKIND. With 3 NAILS – one in each hand then through His feet (VAV, VAV,VAV), or 666, our Saviour was NAILED to the Cross for us. In 6 hours (from 9-3), our Saviour completed the Work of Redemption (Mark 15:25 Luke 23:44)
Man was created on the 6th day which ended creation – in 6 hours Jesus ended the curse with redemption.

The two greek words are found in Matthew 4:4 – anthrpos – human being, man faced and Matthew 7: 24 --- a man as an individual, fellow, husband, sir
The Vav that appears in the word "shalom" Numbers 25:12 "Behold, I am giving to him My Covenant of Peace."
In Hebrew, the word shalom would be written with a proper Vav but in this passage it has a broken vav.
What is the significance of this broken Vav? The story in Numbers chapter 25 is about Phineas (the grandson of Aaron the priest) and his zeal to remove evil from Israel by driving a spear through a man who was fornicating with a Moabite woman. On account of Phineas' act, God stopped the plague and Israel was delivered from destruction. From a Messianic point of view, we can see that Phineas is a type of Yahshua, since it is written that "he was jealous for his God and made atonement for the people of Israel" (Numbers 25:13).
On one level we can further think of this broken Vav as picture of the brokenness of the Messiah for our ultimate deliverance. Isaiah 53: 3-8
How so? Well, since Vav represents the number of Man, the broken Vav represents a man that is broken. In this particular verse, the man has been broken for the sake of the Covenant of Peace that brought atonement to Israel - another picture of the Messiah Yahshua and His ultimate Deliverance for us.
Hebrew words beginning with Vav -- vav – Hook –
Proverbs 21: 8 Vazar - strange – to bear guilt, a crime –
Gen 11: 30 Valad – son or child
Deut 6: 5 V Ve'ahvata et Adonai Eloheykha – You shall love - Love for Yahweh is the basis for all other commandments. -
Malachi prophesied that Elijah would return immediately prior to the arrival of the Messiah. John the Baptist
was the fulfillment of this prophecy in Yahshua’s Time. But the literal fulfillment has yet to occur – in the final
Elijah. Elijah’s name in Hebrew is
יהוּאל) note the vav, at the end of his name)
The name “Elijah” (Strong’s number H452) appears 71 times in the Old Testament. In all BUT FIVE of those
times, Elijah’s name is spelled with the vav at the end, as shown above. But FIVE times, Elijah’s name is spelled
WITHOUT the vav at the end, looking like this:
Jacob’s name, on the other hand, is spelled like this in Hebrew, normally:
But FIVE times in Old Testament, Jacob’s name is spelled “defectively” by the intentional addition of the letter
vav, like this:
In other words, 5x in Scripture, vav is MISSING from Elijah’s name, and 5x it is ADDED to Jacob’s name. What is
the meaning of this? Since the vav is transferred from Elijah’s to Jacob’s name five times, it is obvious that
there is something Elijah has that Jacob doesn’t. This transferal occurs exactly five times, which is the
numerical value of the letter HEY (which, you will recall, represents the Holy Spirit, the Breath of YAH). This
spelling issue, dating back to ancient times and carried on is a message. YAHWEH will breathe HIS SPIRIT – the
same Spirit which empowered Elijah – upon “JACOB” – the Seed of Abraham, in the Last Days. Of this
prophecy, embedded in the Hebrew Scriptures through a “spelling error” (intentionally), Isaiah wrote:
“I will give them an undivided heart and put a new Spirit in them. I will remove from them their heart of
stone and give them a heart of flesh,” Ezekiel 11:19.
The day is coming when Spiritual Israel will be given both a new heart and a Spirit like Elijah’s. Then we will
boldly proclaim Yahshua as the Messiah, to the whole world with Power. Our hearts will be turned to our
spiritual forefathers (Malachi 4) – including Jacob – who became a prince of God when he was broken of his
own self-will and yielded his life to Yahweh. May the Day come quickly, when that which was Elijah’s will be
given to Jacob, in order that his children “toldot” in the word there are two vavs in Gen 2:4 when you come to Gen 5: 1 – this word generations is the same word but only has one vav – until you get to Ruth 4:18 the word generations then has two vavs again ( the lineage of Jesus)
Gen 48:19-20 In Hebrew this is the only place a vav is added to “saying” which speaks of nations being added to or connected to Israel.
Hebrew word for lust has a ox head – a vav -Nail or hook and a hey – behold, reveal when put together it means strong bond that hooks us to behold – who and what do you behold ?
