The Finger of God August 21
But if I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon you.
This verse is powerful and yet perplexing. What exactly is the finger of God? Jesus, in all His glory, has just cast out a devil from someone. This person was a deaf-mute unable to hear or speak.
You would think that people would rejoice but instead, they accused Jesus of working for the devil.
It's always amazing the power people will attribute to the enemy, and they are so quick to believe that Satan would do this, heal someone to deceive. Jesus counters by telling them that a kingdom divided will not stand.
It is an interesting choice of words by Jesus, "the Finger of God," and it's a much deeper meaning than we know. The word finger comes from the Greek word dak'-too-los, finger, which comes from the other Greek word Deka which means: Ten or Ten Digits, and this is where they derive the word finger.
Knowing the Hebrew alphabet's symbolism and numerology will help us gain a deeper understanding of the word Deka.
Psalm 119 Preserves the Hebrew alphabet, and each chapter of the 22 chapters are named with a letter. The tenth letter in the Hebrew alphabet is YOD Psalm 119:73-80, which, interestingly enough, seems to describe Jesus.
Each letter in the Hebrew alphabet has a number and symbolism associated with it. Yod's numeric value is TEN (Deka), and it looks almost like an apostrophe '.
Symbolically the YOD represents God, His humility by being the smallest letter in the alphabet, and all creation comes from the smallest equation. When you put pen to paper, the first touch or dot is called a YOD. Like an atom, the universe is made up of limitless YOD's.
Numerically, by Hebrew tradition, any number can only reach its fullness when it is multiplied by the number ten (deka). By using this word 'deka' Jesus was saying;
"I AM the Fullness of God in all His creation."
We can obtain the fullness of God, too, by believing this simple verse:
And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fullness of God.
Simply put: The Fullness of God is Love, and Jesus Loves YOU!
He is: Elohim Ahavah
The God Who Loves
