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

EnochWalked: www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYoz52izxOc "The Next Most Likely Rapture Timeline" from the "Blessed Hope Forever" channel. He makes a strong case for the Rapture occurring in May 2021. (Making the video seemed to burden him, so I'll pray for him).

sog: EW. I like it. I've thought myself if not Fall 2020, then Spring 2021 at the latest for a Pre-Trib Rapture. 2024 if Mid-Trib/Pre-Wrath. He does make some assumptions (don't we all), but he makes a strong case if correct. I will pray for him as well.

mike: EW-I used to watch/listen to this man but after 9/23 he had changed his interpretation of the rapture to mean that every believer experiences the rapture when they die. At that point I dismissed him. I will check out his latest.

EnochWalked: sog: Thank you. I think he is fairly transparent about his assumptions at least, and I was surprised that he didn't mention Spring 2021 being R12 + 3.5 years. mike: I think that the passing of 9/23 perplexed him, as it did many of us.

EnochWalked: anon: Yup, I think that was the consensus when we discussed it a little earlier in the Shoutbox. It's great to have your discernment added, and I invite you to pick a unique name (even if still anonymous) to share more thoughts here.

mike: EW-Thanks for that suggestion to 'anon'. Anon - at times we encounter some folks otherwise known as trolls. The names of these are often similar to the one youre using. These trolls often get banned. A unique user name is suggested

Natalie: I will try and send Gary a message.
Feb 21, 2020 10:07:54 GMT -6
Gary: Thank you for the heads up! Should be fixed now.
Feb 21, 2020 10:59:55 GMT -6
Gary: EW, sorry I missed your question earlier! I do think an update is probably do soon. 20/20 Vision is close to my current thinking. Also - EXACTLY 923 days after 9/23/17 is 4/3-4 (the conjunction)
