Some facts about the amazing Hebrew letter, "SHIN"

 HERE IS SOMETHING INTERESTING ABOUT THE AMAZING HEBREW LETTER “SHIN" – ש. (Please refer to the drawing and photo below to help you understand the significance of this letter!)

Getting into the heart of the matter – do you remember, that the Almighty said that He would write His name on our hearts? Well - He did! (Check out the photo of the electrocardiogram of the human heart, below.)

Ezekiel 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you. And I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, 20 that they may walk in My statutes, and keep My ordinances, and do them. And they will be My people, and I shall be their Elohim. (CJB)

Shin also stands for the word Shaddai, one of the titles for YHWH. Cohens (priests) form the letter Shin with their hands when they recite the Priestly Blessing - as depicted by the last picture which shows two raised hands in a gesture designed to resemble the letter Shin.

(Tom and I do this “holy raising of the hands” gesture during our morning ritual where we recite the Lord’s Prayer after thanking God for our breakfast food, and then use the “holy raising of hands” gesture while reciting the “Shema.")

Next, please take a moment to study the hand drawing, which will remind you of Star Trek's "Spok" (actor Leonard Nimoy, who was Jewish). Nimoy devised a single-handed version of this holy gesture to create the Vulcan hand salute for his character...

NOW, study the photo of the echocardiogram of the human heart.

For those with “eyes to see,” we are able to recognize that the Hebrew letter "shin" appears in the tissues surrounding the chamber. The shape of the letter Shin seems to mimic the structure of the human heart - specifically, as the lower, larger left ventricle (which supplies the full body) and the smaller right ventricle (which supplies the lungs) are positioned like the lines of the letter Shin.

And so there you have it: A perfect picture of Ezekiel 11:19-20!

AS AN ASIDE, the letter Shin is often inscribed on the case containing a mezuza (see the last photo below), which is a scroll of parchment with Biblical text written upon it, which is affixed upon the door frames of a Believer's home or establishment).

The text contained in the mezuzah is the Shema Yisrael prayer, which calls YHWH's people to love their God with all their heart, soul and strength. The Shema Yisrael prayer also commands the Israelites to write God's commandments on their hearts (Deuteronomy 6:6).

YHWH provided us with so many AMAZING ways to get to have a relationship with Him!
