Introduction to the elements
Formation - The yod []


'''Yod י New creation''' [Yod_י_New_creation]

Imagine that a blank page [v 1] represents God in all his perfection. God is! There is no introduction to God. He just is. [1] [2]

If we touch the page and draw on it, it no longer represents God. If we put our hand to it, in God's estimation, we pollute it. God said not to make a graven image. [3] [4] [q 1][a 1] [5]

  1. The same is true of Genesis 1:1 ± Ge 1:1 where he just exists. There is no mention of His beginning.
  2. see Something from nothing
  3. ± Ex 20:4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness [of any thing] that [is] in heaven above, or that [is] in the earth beneath, or that [is] in the water under the earth:
  4. ± Ex 20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
  5. ± Le 26:1 ¶ Ye shall make you no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall ye set up [any] image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I [am] the LORD your God.

Now consider the blank page as representing God before he decided to create. Where can God create the universe? There is no container for God. He is too big. [1] [q 2] [a 2] The blank page that we hold up must be imagined to be infinitely wide and infinitely tall. Where can God create? There is no place which God does not fill already. [q 3] [a 3]

  1. ± 1Ki 8:27 ... behold, the heaven and heaven of heavens cannot contain thee;...

The yod י represents the first thought of creation and is the smallest letter of the Hebrew alphabet. [1] It contains everything that God wished to accomplish. The yod י not only contains all the physical elements of time, chance and matter, like scientific the notion of the Big Bang, but it also contains the revelation of the personality and character of God, as well as the potential for every thought that has been thought or spoken.

  1. ± Job 38:4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast understanding.

When God first started to create, he had to open a void within himself; [1] a place to put things. There was no place else to do it. He made room for us within himself. This is represented by a yod on the page. Everything else that was created was created in and from this void. [q 4] [a 4]

  1. ± Ge 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness [was] upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.

This first thing that springs forth from the yod is the alphabet. Each letter starts by first drawing a yod י, then a vav ו. All the other letters are yods and vavs combined. Then from the alphabet, words are formed; and using the words, God commanded all else to spring into existence. [1] [q 5] [a 5]


  1. The phrase "God said..." is used ten times during creation as He created all using words.

The name yod יד means 'hand' which is a metaphor for works. [1] [v 2] Creation is the work of God.

  1. ± De 2:7 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking through this great wilderness: these forty years the LORD thy God [hath been] with thee; thou hast lacked nothing.



  1. Are there scriptures that indicate that God is represented by untouched things?
  2. Is God in everything and everywhere, or is everything and everywhere in God?
  3. What is the theological word used to describe that there is nowhere where God isn't?
  4. Since rooms, are formed by the geometry of the walls and ceilings of the house, where do the properties and attributes of the rooms come from?
  5. Which has the power: God, or the words he used?


  1. blank page - God
  2. yod יד - hand, m. works, the creation י commanded ד


  1. ± Ex 20:25 And if thou wilt make me an altar of stone, thou shalt not build it of hewn stone: for if thou lift up thy tool upon it, thou hast polluted it.
  2. Everything is in God. There is no container large enough to put God in.
  3. Omnipresent
  4. From the house. If we are the voids, all of our attributes come from God.
  5. God has all power. We must not make the mistake of thinking that words have power.
Formation - The vav []


The distinct Vav

The vav is the "sword" of the word. It is a prefix meaning 'and'. Like 'and' it divides two things and connects them. [1] As a visual allegory, it looks like a sword. It indicates that there are two sides to an issue.

To understand ideas, we pull them apart and put them back together. This clarifies and distinguishes the meaning. It represents the word spoken into the void to separate God from his creation and pull them back together. [2]

  1. ± Heb 4:12 For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
  2. ± Ge 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

The dalet []

Dalet ד the commandment []

The dalet ד is the commandment. It is not the rosh ר revelation. See the difference between the right angle corner on the dalet and the rounded corner on the rosh.

A commandment [1] accomplishes something. When God commanded the light to be, the waters to part, and the dry land to appear... they did. [2] This demonstrated that he was God. [3] Likewise when he commanded men with two tablets of stone [4], it displayed the character of God, and confronted the universal sin of man. [5] This demonstrated that he alone is God.

A revelation [6] is a communication from God intended as a dialog; it contains personality. "Let there be light" has no one to dialog with. "Thou shalt not covet" is also not up for discussion. If the purpose of God was to free an enslaved people, he would have commanded that they be free, they would have been free. But the purpose was to make himself known. Moses was free to dialog about it. [7] [8] [9] [10] When presented with a command, observe how God is revealed.When presented with a revelation; dialog with God.

  8. ± Ex 3:13 And Moses said unto God, Behold, [when] I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What [is] his name? what shall I say unto them?
  9. ± Ex 4:1 And Moses answered and said, But, behold, they will not believe me, nor hearken unto my voice: for they will say, The LORD hath not appeared unto thee.
