"Mean": Adj. - 'humble, obscure, or lowly'


O Thou Who camest from above,
The pure celestial fire to impart,
Kindle a flame of sacred love,
Upon the mean altar of my heart.

The Secret of the Ineffable Name of God



"And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you." (Exodus 3:14)

The name of God, as revealed to Moses, has become a thing of great mystique to the world. Translated as "I AM" in most modern translations, it is commonly understood to mean, "I exist", "The Self-Existent" or "The One Who Is." It is a name that the Jews have considered too sacred to utter, and as a result, the proper pronunciation of it has been lost to time. Many transliterate it into vocalization as "Yahweh."

None of what I just explained is wrong or improper in understanding. However, there is a profound meaning of the Name that stands as one of the greatest markers of prophetic significance in all of Holy Writ.

In ancient Hebrew, like ancient Greek, the alphabet is multi-purpose, not merely letters, but also numbers. They had no numerical system, but each letter was, at the very same time, a number. And not even a number only, but the letters themselves were pictographs, or "word-pictures," where each letter was, in fact, an entire word in it's representation.

Here is a chart to help us understand:

Now, the name "I AM," sometimes called the Tetragrammaton, comprised of four letters, "Yod," "Hey," "Vav," and "Hey."
A significant prophetic revelation is revealed when we look, not at the pronunciation of the letters together, but when we understand the literal meaning of the pictographs together. Let's use the chart above to decipher the prophecy.

"Yod" = Hand
"Hey" = Behold
"Vav" = Nail
"Hey" = Behold

Therefore, a legitimate and profound understanding of the name of God is formed in a sentence:


"BEHOLD, THE HAND. BEHOLD, THE NAIL."


If one understands this, then the pronunciation of 'YHWH' becomes second tier, and everything of significance shall point to the power of the New and Greater Covenant in the Crucified One, Jesus Christ.
