I don't think like that any more.
When I read the Book of Revelation, I thought like a Greek and read like a Greek. When Jesus said He was the Alpha and the Omega, that is how I read it and understood it. That has changed since. I have now been in Thailand for close to ten years. To understand why the people here do what they do, what they mean with what they say, I have to learn the cultural settings, not necessarily accept their culture in full, to do that I would have to become Buddhist, and I cannot do that. In the same way I found out I had to begin to understand the culture of the time of Jesus and the disciples. That took on a quest that has been very exciting and very instructive. It brought me a lot closer to God. And God closer to me. That started four years ago.
Jesus is not his real name, it is the name given to him by the western world, and I don't believe Jesus rejects that either. But I found out I had to embrace the Hebrew language, writing and way of thinking. I am not becoming a Jew as a result of it. I don't become Orthodox Jew as the result, as many has embraced the Messianic way of faith.
I do believe that Yeshua (Jesus) would speak in Hebrew to John on Patmos. and in Hebrew Yeshua would have said Aleph and Tav. The first letter and the last letter in the Hebrew alephbeth. That also makes it easier to understand what Yeshua said. When Moses wrote the five books, known as the Torah, he did not write in the modern day aleph bet we know from modern day Israel. the word את (et).
It would be like the two first or the two last. Named Ancient Semitic. The pictograph is a picture of an ox. The is a picture of two crossed sticks used to make a sign or mark. So when the tav is the sign or mark, and it was used in the time of Yeshua too, when priests would apply anointing oil on the foreheads of people. Since then the Holy Spirit showed me how it is the New Covenant Symbol, meaning the same as in Ancient Semitic.
The tav is the sign of a cross, referring to the same as Yeshua said on Patmos to John. It is to help us what Yeshua the Messiah has done for us, until He shall return again. Covenant symbol. We find it even in the first book of the Bible, the first chapter and even the first verse. But to go into that is too much for this time.
