The Law of Vav/Vau
Pronounced ‘waw’ originally, vau is a picture of a peg or a hook in ancient writings. Peg—in context—meaning to fasten two or more things together as a nail connects wood to things.
The law of Vau is the law of continuance.
Vau is the sixth word/commandment.
“You shall not kill (Exodus 20:13).”
This is very interesting how the letter relates to, “You shall not kill.” When we hear it, we here the directive not to kill. The problem with this is that it is incomplete. The inner meaning of “You shall not kill” is to cause to continue. The point is: this is a wholistic command.
Let me explain better.
In the scriptures, it is taught, “a life for a life.” This means if I killed/murdered someone, that was in extension me murdering my self. Adding to that thought, the word eternal is based off of the letter VAU. It means to add or to multiply. Something that continues to multiply or add is to cause to continue, which is the word eternal. The point is that the focus of “You shall not kill” is on maintaining an eternal state. That is the command of the letter VAU. Wholistic!
The command to be fruitful and multiply is the command of this letter.
The authority in this letter is powerful.
See if you can hear and see it in these verses.
41 VAU. Let thy mercies come also unto me, O LORD, even thy salvation, according to thy word.Psalm 119: 41-48
42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word.
43 And take not the word of truth utterly out of my mouth; for I have hoped in thy judgments.
44 So shall I keep thy law continually for ever and ever.
45 And I will walk at liberty: for I seek thy precepts.
46 I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed.
47 And I will delight myself in thy commandments, which I have loved.
48 My hands also will I lift up unto thy commandments, which I have loved; and I will meditate in thy statutes.
A few points.
Mercy is protection from harsh judgment from those who are condemning. It is a behavior of allowing one to continue.
Salvation is a continuance of life.
Reproach is one who is condemning, it is a murderous type behavior. (Remember Yeshua and the harlot who was being reproached and the mercy that protected her).
‘Truth’ in Hebrew is the word emet. Emet starts with the first Hebrew letter aleph. The next letter is mem—which is the middle letter of the aleph-bet. Then, it ends with tav. This gives a picture progression or continuance of life.
Keeping the law of Vau/continuance
Walking at liberty = abounding = life = continuance
Precepts are the physical manifestation of a spiritual law.
A testimony is a declaration of promise. To speak testimonies before kings = prophecy/promise fulfilled, which gives a picture of maintaining an eternal state.
Commandments are commands. Commands always comes from within. It is the substance that allows one to maintain a healthy state.
Statutes are limitations/ boundaries = temperance/balance—which allows continuance.
