CHET (8) discussed on 8.8.8 and some Olympic Stage Moments; How many people do you have to coordinate for Worship?

                                  

See end of post for info on this pic.. but first :

OK, its 8.8.8 and if I enjoyed my Papa John’s pizza I got tonight more than I did, I might have got my fill on the whole 8.8.08 thing, but it was an Olympic special and (so as it was) a whole wheat dough… needless to say, it left something to be desired. From a marketing end I was excited to have a company successfully reach out to me with a secret code M888 via text message, to order a pizza this day for $8.88.  It is a great thing when you talk to people where they are, and how they want to be talked to.
Moooooooving on….I was at Integrity Music chapel service the other day and was alerted to the Greek work CHET (8), and its meaning in the Jewish calendar this year as an opening to the future. I am absolutely not versed
to share this with you, but I did pull some info on this letter below. Simply how it is scetched and drawn makes it look like a new door.  Enjoy some insight
into this number CHET 8

Symbolic Meaning
of the Number Eight

This is my covenant, which ye shall keep, between me and you and thy seed after thee; Every man child among you shall be circumcised. And ye shall circumcise the flesh of your foreskin; and it shall be a token of the covenant betwixt me and you. And he that is eight days old shall be circumcised among you, every man child in your generations, he that is born in the house, or bought with money of any stranger, which is not of thy seed.

Genesis 17:10f

Circumcision: The Sign of God’s Covenant

The historic Christian Church has traditionally associated the Number 8 with the entrance into the Covenant of God. This understanding comes from God Himself who commanded Circumcision – the Sign of the Covenant – to be performed on the Eighth Day. God used the same language –  (Oath B’rit, Sign of the Covenant) – when He gave the Rainbow (Genesis 9.13):

The letter Chet represents a fence, hedge, wall, or enclosure. This coheres with its ancient form that looks like two fence poles with two (or three) rails, which gave rise to the Greek and Latin forms of the letter H.

 Most scholars, while acknowledging this traditional understanding, express some uncertainty about its origin because the name Chet does not directly correspond to any Hebrew word. Gesenius, in his seminal Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament, suggests that the name  (Chet) is actually from the root  (Chetz, Wall, S# H2434), there being a slight phonetic variation in the exchange of Tsaddi for Tav. Chetz is from the KeyWord Chatzah (Divide, see below). The symbolic meaning of Chet as an enclosure, wall, fence, or refuge is the basis of many KeyWords God used in the Chet alphabetic verses below. Chanun: Gracious

Ps 145.8: The LORD is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy.

Ps 111.4b: … the LORD is gracious and full of compassion.

Ps 112.4b: … he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous.

I won’t just leave you with that, let me also say that if there are any Worship Leaders out there, art directors,  or artists who have done anything from the stage, then I hope you got to see the opening to the Olympics tonight on 8.8.8.  It was one of the most unbelievable stage sets I have ever seen, and it was powered by humans and custume. Outside of the fireworks that opened the show, the bulk of the opening ceremony spectacular stage set  was powered with many volunteers and a great wardrobe. The use of lights with people was crazy. How many people do you have to pull together for a Sunday service?  How difficult is it to get 10-20 people doing the same thing at the same time on stage, or even at the right times?  This show was great. I hope you got to enjoy it!
