What is the Heart All About?
OUR HEART IN HIS HEART
There are 3 hearts in the MKI Studios logo.
The inner heart is our heart. MKI Studios is the family of Mark, Kelly, and Isaac Larsen. This smaller, black heart contains the Paleo Hebrew Pictographic “letters” of an ox head (alef) and crossed sticks (tav). If these white letters were not creating the Light within our heart, it is black. The only Light (Hebrew word: ‘Or’) in our heart is the Oxhead and the Crossed Sticks. The inner heart seems static and appears unmoving. But we have the Father’s Heart surrounding our heart! Moving our heart forward in His Ruach/His Spirit!
The second heart (though not made fully visible) contains the whole spectrum of light. But what is “visible” are the colors red-orange and blue. We chose these colors, to emphasize Yahushua’s words underlined in the Scripture below. Our Studios and all the materials it produces must either be blue (passionate, holiness), or orange/red (stop sinning, don’t be warm to it)! Heat draws Him and others to Him.
15“‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! 16So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my mouth. 17For you say, I am rich, I have prospered, and I need nothing, not realizing that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. 18I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. 19Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent.
The worst action is to be lukewarm. To be inert. When something is inert, it is as if it is dead.
EMERGING HEART OF THE NEIGHBOR
On top of the Father’s heart is a new heart being formed. It is being shaped by the process of MKI being in Covenant with Elohim. It is the heart of a neighbor. And who is our neighbor? All who are a part of our lives, whether friend or foe. The heart that emerges on top of the Father’s heart can only become servant to it’s Father. Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Yahushua is Meschiac. Whether you support the fact He’s supporting you, or not. That heart emerging is all of you, who are our neighbors, whom we are to love as ourselves. Our heart in His Heart is fueled and functions to help your heart.
HIS HEART PROPELS OUR HEART-IN FUEL AND FUNCTION
Elohim’s heart is moving. We usually have it come from behind the viewer and then hit the screen in front of the viewer. Did you know that in Hebrew thought, what is behind you is the future? What is in front of you is the past! Why? You can see the past. Look at something, and you’ve already looked (past tense) at it. The future is our emphasis. The action you can’t see behind you, is coming…from the future. And that action is His heart and our heart after your heart to find His.
THE HEBREW LANGUAGE-THE LANGUAGE OF CREATION
The “Ox Head” is a Paleo Hebrew pictograph letter. It is like our first letter “a” in English. The “Crossed Sticks” is the last Paleo Hebrew pictograph letter, like our last letter “z” in English. So, we have bookends that represent the beginning and the end of this language. The richness of pictographic languages is they do more than tell the reader something. Pictographs show and tell it.
If you look at Paleo-Hebrew, you will quickly ascertain this is a rural culture. A culture that is semi-nomadic, because the pictographs have tents and pegs, protective corrals and gates for herding oxen, and there’s water and seed. There is also, clearly, the depiction of animal sacrifice and covenant. In fact, the “Ox Head” and the “Crossed Sticks” define Covenant.
Ox Head-means: “Leader. First. Strong. “
Crossed Sticks: “Mark. Sign. Covenant.”
Remember that Yahushua (Jesus) Himself talked about the yoke of His Word.
“Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Matthew 11:29 NKJV)
This pictograph can represent 3 semi-nomadic, Ancient Near Eastern processes. The Ox Head available for plowing, a plow breaking up the ground to plant seeds, and the slaughter of the Ox at the neck. Cattle were fundamental to livelihood. The ox head is the strength and power of the heart. Cattle were also used to pay for the dowry of a bride. If you continue to look at these symbols in the light of the old (first) testament, which we’ve come to call the first Covenant, you’ll see that an ox or a heifer was very important to the temple sacrifices. Oxen were crucial to your relationship with God, your family, and your neighbor. This all correlates to Covenant.
The entire Hebrew alphabet spans between the pictographic letters that define the “a” and the “z.” The Ox Head is the “beginning,” and the Crossed Sticks is the “end” of it.
Yahushua is the beginning and the end of Covenant. The first and the last of the Covenant. His dowry payment to obtain us was his own life upon the “mark” or the crossed sticks. His blood covers both intentional and unintentional sins. There is no sin that his blood payment cannot cover, cleanse, and change the individual. Except the sin of unbelief, whereby one declares that the holiness of this Covenant is evil. As much as this seems rare and ludicrous, there is a growing segment of supposed ‘believers’ who are now claiming that the Father and Son could not possibly have entered agreement for the Father to allow His only begotten son to be murdered to atone for all sin. That is an evil Father. We live in deceptive, delusional times! They look at the Crossed Sticks as a tragedy. Not the highest, purest, holiest, most passionate act of love. He was willing to be a sacrifice to atone for all sin and be a dowry payment because He LOVED us THAT much.
FINAL REMARKS: THE POSSIBILITY THAT IT WAS LANGUAGE THAT WAS THE FIRST ACT OF CREATION
What interests us at MKI Studios, is that the very first sentence of the Hebrew Scriptures contains this Oxhead/Crossed sticks, which in modern Hebrew is referred to as, “et.”
“In the beginning (in summit) Elohim created….
בְּרֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת
We lean toward a tradition of Hebrew thought that the FIRST creative act of Yah was the Hebrew Language. These two letters cover the ability of the language to exist in phonetic, grammatic, and semantic forms.
In other words, The Living Word SPOKE OUT and thus created the entire ability to communicate forms/manifestations. If you don’t have a language, how can you speak? If you can’t speak, how can you communicate? But…. if you FIRST have the language within you, and you speak it out from you, and You are Yah, then all that you speak, becomes.
THIS type of perspective puts the emphasis on speech as the Power and the Way. The focus is not a mighty pair of Hands, it is a Mighty Voice. One Voice. Echad.
In Bereshiyt/Genesis we read, “In the beginning Elohim “et.”
In Yochanan/John we read, “In the beginning was the Word.”
Take this further, and this Gospel also says that the “Word” was with Yah in the beginning. And through HIM all things were made. Without HIM, nothing was made that has been made.
We have here a very deep truth.
Tikvah to you! Thank you for reading, and MKI Studios asks you to be blessed by Him to the full measure.
