The Broken Vav
The Broken VavSoferut (i.e., the laws concerning the scribal arts of writing Sefrei Torah) requires that all Hebrew letters be well-formed - that is, no letters can touch other letters and no letters can be malformed, broken, or otherwise illegible. However, there is a strange exception to these rules regarding the Vav that appears in the word "shalom" Numbers 25:12
The Broken Vav appears in the 6th time out of 110 times that the word Shalom is used. Shalom (Hebrew: שָׁלוֹם shalom; also spelled as sholom, sholem, sholoim, shulem) is a Hebrew word meaning peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare and tranquility and can be used idiomatically to mean both hello and goodbye.
This name derives from the Hebrew “Yirmeyâh / Yirmeyâhû”, meaning (the Lord loosens, God will uplift, Yah exalts). Jeremiah was one of the major prophets of the Hebrew Bible.
Jerusalem is called Yerushalayim (Hebrew: יְרוּשָׁלַיִם) The name "Shalem", whether as a town or a deity, is derived from the same root as the word "shalom", meaning peace.
Jerusalem in the Old Testament. Salem. The first occurrence of Jerusalem is in Joshua 10:1, but an allusion to Jerusalem appears in Genesis 14:18 with the reference to Melchizedek, king of Salem. Poetic parallel construction in Psalm 76:2 ( Heb 76:3 ) equates Salem with Zion. Theologically, the Canaanite city of Shalem has become the biblical city of Shalom, Peace. Prophetically, Isaiah spoke of the Prince of Peace (Shalom) who would reign on David's throne (in Jerusalem), a reference full of messianic portent ( Isa 9:6 ).
(ye-roo-sha-LAI-yeem) n. Jerusalem. Also known as the City of David, Zion, Salem, Ariel, Jebus, the "City of God," the "holy city," comes to designate heaven itself (Heb. 12:22-23). In Psalm 122:6 we read, "pray for the peace of Jerusalem." The word sha'alu actually means "ask" (as in ask a sheilah, a question) and shalom is a Name of Jesus, since He indeed is Sar Shalom (the Prince of Peace). The word Jerusalem means "teaching of peace" (the "Jeru" at the beginning comes from the same root as Torah, which means teaching), so the phrase could be construed as "ask about the Prince of Peace and His Teaching." At any rate, we know that Jesus is indeed the King of Jerusalem (Matt 5:35) who will soon return to reign over all the earth. - Hebrews4Christians

The Extra Vav
Genesis 2:4 (2 vavs)
These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord God made the earth and the heavens,
When God created the "generations" of the heavens and the earth, the Hebrew word toldot (תולדות (is used (Gen. 2:4). This refers to created order before the sin and fall of Adam and Eve. After the fall of Adam, however, the word is spelled differently in the Hebrew text, with a missing letter Vav (i.e., as תלדות .(Thereafter, each time the phrase "these are the generations of" occurs in the Scriptures (a formulaic way of enumerating the generations of the heads of families), the word is spelled "defectively," with the missing Vav (ו .(The Vav was "lost." However, when we come to Ruth 4:18 the phrase: 'These are the generations of Perez' is spelled with the missing Vav restored (i.e., as תולדות .(In all of Scripture, the only two places where we see the restored spelling is in Genesis 2:4 and Ruth 4:18, which leads to the question as to what connection there might be between the creation of the heavens and the earth, the fall of mankind, and the creation of the family line of Perez? - Hebrews For Christians
raindrop: EnochWalked: The mist of confusion is clearing. Have a read of this ! It is VERY revealing re the Temple Mount..agreements made in the days of yore. The Jordanian Waqf are going to be removed from the Temple Mount? The plot doth thicken.

raindrop: For one - the Sanhedrin agree with Natan (without mentioning him) that the war of Gog Magog started nearing the end of 2015. And, they are calling Pres. Trump "The Anointed King" after King Cyrus.

raindrop: Which is bizarre. Messiah Jesus is the only anointed King. Are they suggesting that POTUS is the Messiah?

EnochWalked: raindrop: Wow, well done on the 780 days connection. You're a very gifted woman yourself. I knew something didn't feel right about Israel seemingly giving up that land and your article really shows the significance. Yes, the 144 acres figure stood out too!

EnochWalked: "There needs to be a central figure that unites the 70 nations. ... This could be Trump but he also stands at a crossroads." Yikes. 'The Sanhedrin is planning to mint a coin... “Governments mint coins as a way of establishing their rule,” Rabbi Weiss said'

EnochWalked: mike: The credit goes to raindrop for finding the article, but I'm glad if I've drawn attention to particularly significant aspects of it.

mike: I texted Stick a few weeks ago saying "it could be Trump"...I still think that's a possibility. Did the 11 realize Judas was among them

EnochWalked: Interesting, Mike, thank you. I do keep reminding myself that no matter how seemingly blessed someone is, they can still commit the most heinous of sins, but also no matter how unworthy someone is, God can still use them for His glory.
