    One name used for God is YHVH - this represents Yud - Heh - Vav - Heh. This represents a hand - reveal - nail - reveal. The Yud or Yod represents the HAND: to work - a deed - to make. We make or create with our hands and God is our Creator, we are the work of His hands. The letter Hey means to behold, to proclaim or to reveal. There are two letter Heh in this word separated by Vav. The Vav means a nail, to secure. When a carpenter builds they use lots of nails to hold things together. So we have a hand and a nail that points to Jesus at Calvary. They we have the 2 Hays this represents the "Jewish" people before the nail and the Christian people after the nail. This also represents the old and new testament. The old is revealed in the new and the new is concealed in the old. We see in Genesis 2:4 "This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, when the LORD God made the earth and the heavens."

    And the four letter name adds up to 26.

    Hand reveal nail reveal.... The way I see it is that God is revealed then crucified then his other is revealed, his church. God emptied himself out and we are revealed.

    John 16:7 "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you."

    This would lead me to believe that if Jesus were to return, then the Holy Spirit Dispensation or the Church Age has to end for the Kingdom Age to begin. They teach that the church is raptured out of here and then 7 years later returns with Jesus.

    2Thes 2:8 "the one who now restrains it will continue until he is taken out of the way. And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord Jesus will slay with the breath of His mouth and annihilate by the majesty of His arrival."
