SHIN or SHEEN (ש) is the twenty-first letter of the Hebrew Alef-Bet. It has the numerical value of 300. The form of the Hebrew Living Letter ™ SHIN (ש) is three VAVs (ו) with a YUD (י) on the top of each VAV. They all rise from a common base point. Notice that SHIN appears to have the shape of a flame.

Not only does the shape of SHIN (ש) looks like a flame, but the form of the living letter SHIN can be found upon the human heart as well as on the very hills of Jerusalem. There is a secret of the SHIN in the flame bound to the fuel (coal). The flame can represent divine revelation that originates from the coal of divine essence. Always remember His coals of judgment are the coals of His love: “And his brightness was as the light; he had horns coming out of his hand: and there was the hiding of his power. Before him went the pestilence, and burning coals went forth at his feet. He stood, and measured the earth: he beheld, and drove asunder the nations; and the everlasting mountains were scattered, the perpetual hills did bow: His ways are everlasting: (Habakkuk 3:4-6 KJV). “Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame” (Song of Solomon 8:6 KJV).

Due to SHIN (ש) being the 21st letter of the Hebrew Alphabet, we can break it down numerically: 7 x 3 = 21. The number seven represents perfection while the number three represents completion; therefore, SHIN speaks of the complete perfection reflected in the works of Almighty God. Kings and priests made after the Order of Melchizedek speak with the Voice of One – the voice of the Almighty – when they solely seek the perfect heart and perfect will of our Heavenly Father (Ezekiel 1:24-28).

The Hebrew name for Almighty God is “Shaddai” which bears the SHIN (sh). The facets of El Shaddai are: Almighty, All-Powerful, All-Sufficient One; the Judge; the sweet omnipotence of love, sure and all sufficient resource in a time of need; power to fulfill every promise He has made His people and perform every word He has spoken; bountiful; overrides nature to perform miracles and remove mountains; Giver and Pourer out of self-sacrificial love and blessing; Nurturer and Comforter that gives strength and quiets the restless. He is called the Double-Breasted One who nourished and strengthens. Fullness. In Him all fullness dwells and out of His constant fullness His own receives all things.

The radiance of complete perfection is illustrated in the Hebrew words “Shabbat” and “Shekinah.”

The Hebrew word “Shabbat” literally means “he rested.” Exodus 34:21 declares: “Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest.” It is common to greet one another with the phrase “Shabbat Shalom” (שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם) on the day that God rested from creating the world(s) – the Seventh Day.

The term “shalom” is so common in Israel that it is regularly used to say hello and goodbye. Shalom (שָׁלוֹם) is a Hebrew word that means peace, harmony, wholeness, completeness, prosperity, welfare, and tranquility. Shalom speaks about nothing being broken and nothing missing. Its Ancient Hebrew Word Picture communicates that shalom is the peace that destroys the authority of chaos.

The Seventh Day Sabbath begins sundown Friday and ends sundown on Saturday. Shabbat is when the Hebrews remember three things besides entering His rest: [1] the creation of heaven and earth in six days, [2] the Exodus from Egypt and redemption from slavery, and [3] looking forward to the future Messianic Age. Don’t forget that the Seventh Day Sabbath was the first thing designated as holy by God Himself (Genesis 2:1-3). The first commanded Sabbath after the Exodus from Egypt is connected to the cessation of manna (Exodus 16:26-30). The Sabbath is also listed as one of the Ten Commandments. It is the fourth commandment of the Big Ten and it is the only one where God’s people are told to remember it and keep it holy: Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it” (Exodus 20:8-11 NKJV).

When the term shalom is combined with shabbat, it is a proclamation to basically have a peaceful shabbat – “Shabbat Shalom” (שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם). Jewish liturgy describes Shabbat as a “bride” and as a “queen.” This is where Shekinah (שכינה‎) is found, which is the dwelling or settling presence of God. Although the word “Shekinah” is not found in the Bible, its concept clearly is. The prophets in Scripture make numerous references to the Presence of God. His Dwelling Presence is particularly linked to the Tabernacle or Temple in Jerusalem, which can be interpreted as a microcosm of a human being. Hebrew Sages tell us that shekinah does not dwell with sinners. The concept of shekinah is also associated with the Holy Spirit.
