Hebrew letter meanings revealed! Part 20 - Resh
The twentieth letter in the Hebrew alphabet

This is a series connecting all 22 letters of the Hebrew Alphabet!


Welcome to part, 20 of our revealing the hebrew letters series today, we're going to be talking about the letter rish and it's the 20th letter in the hebrew alphabet, and the gematria on the rish is the number 200.

So you have noticed last week when we talked about the cough, we started counting by a hundreds at this point.

We went from the saudi, which was 90.

now we're into the hundreds.

So we have a hundred two hundred next week will be three and so on and so forth.

So let's talk today, a little bit about the reish, the resh represents a head of something or the head or the chiefest of things.

The reish is bent over in humbleness you'll.

Notice that a lot of the themes of these letters have to do with humbleness.

We have the noon.

We have the dolla.

We have the race.

We have a lot of these letters that are bent over in humbleness.

Because humbleness is a key component in the characteristic of god.

And the way that god wants us to be.

We are to be humble in everything in every way, just as jesus christ.

Humbly came to this earth.

So the reish means poverty or poor, but not in the sense of not having any money.

The race means poor or humbleness humbleness of spirit.

And it means that we have we are completely dependent on god just much like the saudi the man laying on his side was dependent upon god in humbleness, and depending on him that's, a correlation between that letter in this letter race here.

And so we have the head bent over or somebody bowing down a man that is bowing down, humbleness, he's aware of his need he's aware his mind.

His head is aware that he needs something.

And that need obviously is god in his life because without god, we have nothing.

We have no provision.

We have no protection.

And so we are aware of our need when we are humble in a true place of humbleness.

We are aware of our true need.

Now, uh, we understand that in the scripture it talks a lot about how it's hard for people that are rich in the natural to be saved it's, not impossible.

However, it is difficult many times for rich people to be saved, not because they don't need god, but because they don't see many times not all of them, but many times it's hard for wealthy people to see their need for god, because in the natural they have everything that they want all of their physical needs for the most part are being fulfilled and so it's hard, sometimes for them to see or to understand with their mind that they need god in their life for for eternity it's, an eternal thing, not just something temporary on this earth.

So it means to be poor, but not poor in money because god doesn't want us to lack in anything.

But it means to be poor in spirit to have a heart of humbleness to listen to the things around us to be adaptable to the things around us and allow god to work things out in our lives when you're aware of your need it's, the beginning of wisdom when we understand that we need something from god.

And honestly, even on the physical plane in the level of worlds.

Here we need one another.

The bible says that iron sharpens iron in that within that that we can connect with one another as people and god's people, and we can help one another.

We should help our neighbor.

We should be good to one another and love one.

Another, just as the bible instructs us as jesus said to love one another, because if we don't love one another, if we can't love, our brother, then we cannot love god.

And so all of that is another connection of the race how we need one another, and we need god and that's the beginning of wisdom.

Because if we understand that we can understand a lot about the things in this earthly plane and in the supernatural as well, it's, a very flexible, letter it's, all about adaptability adapting to the situation around us.

The person that is aware of their need is adaptable to their situation.

It look, if you understand that if you're on the battlefield and you're, not willing to be adaptable in that situation, and you are not aware of the situation around you it's going to be hard to be adaptable.

So being adaptable has to do with humbleness as well and being aware of our need to be adaptable.

It all kind of connects together.

This is the race that we're talking about here.

Now, the literacy begins the word rosh, which means the head or the beginning, the chiefest of something and that obviously begins the phrase, rosh hashanah or the head or the first of the year.

And that race is bent over in humbleness.

Once again, we see the theme of humility plays a role here in the word of god, it's, the first of the year during the first part of the year we are the jews are humbly listening and seeking direction for the lord for the upcoming year.

And so we should always be ready for when god transitions us.

Rosh hashanah is a transitional period, it's a time to be aware and to be adaptable to the changes that god's wanting to make in our lives and be humble set forth listening to the voice of the lord for what he wants us to do for the upcoming year.

Now, the race is said to be, uh, the unholy part of the dalit.

You see the rish and the dalit actually look very similar.

They almost look exactly the same.

However, the dollar has a little yod that comes up at the very end of it.

And so that's, the difference and it's said by jewish sages that that the the race is the unholy counterpart or can look be looked at that as the dalit, both look the same, except that yod at the end.

The race does not have the yod is a picture of the hand of god, the fiery hand of god, which can be looked at in some ways as the judgment of god.

And so the yule is the hand that represents judgment.

And we can look at this as like this.

The unrighteous has no mind for the judgment of god.

So the unrighteous person, the person that is not looking for god's judgment does not have the fear of god.

They are not going to be worried about the judgment of god in the end times, and they are not going to be worried about god, judging their souls.

So without judgment, there is no fear of god.

And there is no dependence on him.

They are poor in need of a savior.

Now what's interesting about that the letter reish actually begins the word, ra, which means evil.

And if you want to go a little bit further into that, there was an egyptian sun, god, one of the chief gods in egypt in ancient egypt called ra.

So literally they had a god.

The god of the the sun god, ra was a god of the chiefest of gods, and that word means evil.

And so they were worshiping whether they understood it or not an evil.

God, a false god.

And so it's important for us to understand here that to have the mind of christ to have an adaptability to listen and be flexible to do what god tells us to do and always have the fear of god in us to want to do the things of god and want to do things for him.

And also to have our hearts, rendered toward him, always talk about that word rendered to be torn into pieces to let god have his way in our lives.

When we do that it's the beginning of wisdom and it's beginning of being adaptable to our situation to allow god to move the chess pieces in our life from here to there and everywhere, listen, I hope that you're enjoying these hebrew letter meanings.
