As we continue to think of the tallit and all it means and how it symbolizes all that is fulfilled in Yeshua, just the four corners remind us of so much else that we find in scripture.
Eden was encompassed by four rivers. Israel was bordered by four bodies of water. When the Israelites camped around the tabernacle there were four banners (one each on each of the four sides) with symbols on each that we find as faces (or representations) associated with beings around the throne in Revelation, the four spirits that Ezekiel saw, the four gospels…
There are four horses/horsemen in Revelation that represent four ministries of the Lord. It is the revelation (not plural – ‘Revelations’ although, in a sense, that would be accurate) of Jesus Christ.
There were four in the fiery furnace.
There are four winds and four corners of the earth referred to in scripture.
God gives a four-fold salvation promise associated with the tallit. I will take you out…(remember?)
We are to love God with all our heart, all our soul, all our body and all our strength - four things. That speaks to the four dimensions – perhaps a topic for another WOW. More that length, width, height, depth, space. Four Square Church…
How many fours around the throne I Revelation? 3x4=12, 6x4=24…
God is above all, in all, though all, concerned with all – four things.
The list of names/attributes of God that we are looking at has 44 entries. Even His original revealed name is four YHWH – the tetragammaton.
All that to say He is crazy with love ‘four’ you, yediyd.
