Today’s Date on the Gregorian Calendar is as follows: 8th August 2017 = 08/08/17 = 8/8/17
As can we see, the “number 8” appears twice today. It is important to recognise SEASONS and KEY IN.
NUMBERS ARE IMPORTANT TO YAH (GOD) so very much, otherwise HE would not have created them. When HE created our DAYS, WEEKS, MONTHS and YEARS, YAH numbered them. YAH’S original Calendar as seen in Genesis 1-2 and Exodus 12:1 as well as other HOLY SCRIPTURES was named with NUMBERS (not names as we have today).
What does Number 8 Signify in YAH’S Records?
8 = NEW BIRTH / NEW BEGINNINGS
Going back to Hebrew, the LANGUAGE OF CREATION, ORIGINAL LANGUAGE OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES and YAH’S (GOD’S) Beloved Language, we note that the 8th Letter of the Hebrew Alphabet is “CHET”. What is it symbolic of?
The Letter “”CHET” is the eighth letter of the ALEPH-BET having the numeric value 8. The pictograph for “CHET” looks like a WALL or a FENCE whereas the Classic Hebrew script is constructed of the PRECEDING TWO LETTERS, “VAV” and “ZAYIN” joined at the top with a thin connecting line.
“CHET” is the Letter of LIFE since the words, CHAI (LIFE) and CHAYAH (LIVING) both begin with this letter. True life comes from CHASIDUT (DEVOTION).
“CHET” is also the Number of GRACE (CHEN) and the Number of WISDOM (CHOKMAH).
Since “VAV” represents PEOPLE and OTHERS, and “ZAYIN” represents TIME, “CHET” is a picture of SPENDING TIME IN COMMUNITY (CHAVURAH).
“CHET” and the Doorway to Life:
The Hebrew word “CHAI” comes from the Hebrew Letter “CHET”. The word “CHAI means LIFE. The word “CHAI” is short for “CHAYIM” (life) and the letter “CHET” is seen to resemble a DOORWAY, where the BLOOD OF THE LAMB was daubed during the PASSOVER FESTIVAL as seen in Exodus 12:7.
There are many necklaces that spell the Hebrew word “CHAI”. In fact, the word itself resembles the LAMB. From this we can say that THE LAMB GIVES LIFE when applied to the DOORWAY OF OUR HEART!
Proverbs 3:22 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)
22 they will be life for your being
and grace for your neck.
“CHET” is the Letter of DISCIPLESHIP TO YAHUSHUA (JESUS/YESHUA):
Note that the “VAV” represents MAN and the “ZAYIN” represent THE CROWNED MAN who wields the SWORD OF RUACH HA KODESH (HOLY SPIRIT) (i.e. YAHUSHUA, King of the Jews), we can see that “CHET” is a PICTURE of DISCIPLESHIP TO YAHUSHUA.
Since “CHET” is formed from “VAV” and “ZAYIN” connected by a YOKE, we can see that this pictures our relationship with YAHUSHUA as HE leads and teaches us on the PATH OF LIFE.
A YOKE is a CONNECTION between two things so that they can MOVE AND WORK TOGETHER. Since the sum of the letters “VAV” and “ZAYIN” equals THE VALUE OF LOVE, we can see that the essential nature of this “MOVING AND WORKING TOGETHER” is that of LOVING YAH (GOD) and one another just as Mashiach YAHUSHUA loves us.

A PSALM OF PRAISE TO YAH (Throughout the following Psalm, we see BEGINNINGS AND COVENANT WITH MAN:
Psalm 8 Names of God Bible (NOG)
For the choir director; on the gittith;[a] a psalm by David.
1 O Yahweh, our Adonay, how majestic is your name throughout the earth!
Your glory is sung above the heavens.[b]
2 From the mouths of little children and infants,
you have built a fortress against your opponents
to silence the enemy and the avenger.
3 When I look at your heavens,
the creation of your fingers,
the moon and the stars that you have set in place—
4 what is a mortal that you remember him
or the Son of Man that you take care of him?
5 You have made him a little lower than yourself.
You have crowned him with glory and honor.
6 You have made him rule what your hands created.
You have put everything under his control:
7 all the sheep and cattle, the wild animals,
8 the birds, the fish,
whatever swims in the currents of the seas.
9 O Yahweh, our Adonay, how majestic is your name throughout the earth!
In Psalm 8:4-8, we see a COVENANT being made BETWEEN YAH AND MAN as seen in Genesis 2. YAH gives man DOMINION over everything HE created.
In conclusion, the SPIRITUAL SIGNIFICANCE OF today is that TODAY 8/8/17 is a COVENANT DAY FOR NEW BIRTH & NEW BEGINNINGS WITH YAH!
