Welcome to our next blog. For those new to the blog and groups, we focus on the Hebrew aspect of the scriptures. Knowledge of the Hebrew language is not a requirement to be part of this journey, however, it will inspire you to know more. If you are new to the Hebrew Letters, below is a link to the last blog on the Living Letters. Within that blog are the links to all the letters. (LINK)
Mystic Realms of the Hebrew word Wa-lad ולד Child
Time for our next blog and our focus is a word that starts with the Hebrew letter Vav. This letter is scarce, as there are literally only 10 words in the Bible that start with Vav. One did standout however, and it’s the Hebrew word Wa-lad ולד, it means CHILD. Now there is another Hebrew word with that meaning, though its focus is centred on seed. Wa-lad however just has the single meaning of ‘child’.
Dictionary of Biblical Languages with Semantic Domains: Hebrew (Old Testament) 2263 וָלָד
2263 וָלָד (wā·lāḏ) child, i.e., the offspring of parent (Ge 11:30+)
Interestingly, according to my research, Wa-lad only appears once in the Hebrew Bible and is in the scripture:
Genesis 11:30 NKJV
Now Sarai was barren, she had no child.
Why would the Hebrew word have the meaning ‘child’ but not focus on seed? I believe the mystery around ולד is about promise, the fruit and the end product.
Genesis 13:15–16 NIV
All the land that you see I will give to you and your offspring forever. I will make your offspring like the dust of the earth, so that if anyone could count the dust, then your offspring could be counted.
Yahweh promised Abram offspring beyond measure…. the fruit… however, Sarai did not possess the environment for that promise to take root and come forth. It was only after
Genesis 17:5 NIV
No longer will you be called Abram; your name will be Abraham, for I have made you a father of many nations.
… when Yahweh declared a covenant with Abram and their names changed to Abraham & Sarah, that Sarah conceived and gave birth to Isaac…. the child of promise. Yahweh breathed the breath of His name into them, giving life to the promise embedded within. It is within that breath that reveals ‘ I have a plan’.
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Wa-lad ולד is the memory of original intent. Scripture describes that even though Sarahs womb was dead, they relied on the power of the promise and the one who activates it. Yahweh inserted His name into her name, into her very DNA, which activated a continuous physical renewal and rejuvenation process in Sarah where she could again have a child, to give birth to the promise within her.
Romans 4:21 NIV
being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised.
Joshua 21:45 NIV
Not one of all the Lord’s good promises to Israel failed; every one was fulfilled.
The gematria for Wa-lad is 40, and a Hebrew letter with the same numerical value is Mem מ. MEM means water, and most of us are familiar with the fact that מ is shrouded with mysteries around creation. There is an entanglement and a passing through between ולד and מ that reveals and activates promise. A scripture in
Isaiah 43:2 NIV
When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.
When you read that scripture it was most likely with the viewpoint of going through trials and testing? But when you consider its context, the aim is to bring forth the children.
Isaiah 43:4–5 NIV
Since you are precious and honoured in my sight, and because I love you, I will give people in exchange for you, nations in exchange for your life. Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west.
Ponder on all the instances Israel had to pass through water מ to possess land or step into destiny. I have mentioned to our congregation the meaning of ‘Hebrew’ is ‘to cross over’. As a Hebrew, the seed of Abraham, we are ‘the people of the cross over’. It is in our DNA to bring forth and separate secrets and mysteries, fleshed out into our New Creation Bodies. The reason you are able is that your DNA is entangled to ‘the other side’, you are seated there.
“Water מ is intricately connected to both Wa-lad ולד and creating. Because of the unique molecular structure of water (H2O), the geometry around each water molecule is tetrahedral–resembling a pyramid shape. A shape for transmission and reception. Water and the information it carries, activates the life locked up within the seed to grow into its purpose. This is the very process that Wa-lad ולד contains. It holds the keys in turning barrenness into fruitfulness.” – Dr Erika Hart.
Through Wa-lad ולד there is an unlocking of the ideal environment to facilitate, nurture and bring about the Potential (seed) into the Promise (child). It is in the makeup of Wa-lad ולד that it reveals this. Vav is positioned at the beginning of the word. It hooks into and inserts the essence and life-giving process as the DNA strand. Lamed reaches into the depths, it continuously tunes and provides (teaches), developing and maturing the promise. Dalet ד at the end of the word, where a door is created for the manifestation of the promise of fruitfulness into your circumstances and into this moment.
So as your gaze is hooked (Vav ו) into His gaze, your thoughts into His thoughts, your words into His words, this dance of eternal connectedness creates a fertile oasis in which the promises are released and manifested through (Dalet ד). Imagine this, you as a ו, and Jesus the door ד and the teacher ל within, you are the living embodiment of PROMISE, the fruit, the result.
