Shadows of Messiah – Chemistry

Shadows of Messiah

Chemistry is often called “the central science” because it connects the other natural sciences such as astronomyclick here, physicsclick here, biologyclick here and geologyclick here.

Chemistry for Dummies pg 9

“Simply put, this whole branch of science is all about matter, which is anything that has mass and occupies space.  Chemistry is the study of the composition and properties of matter and the changes it undergoes.”

The English word matter comes from the Latin ‘materia’ which means the inner wood of a tree.  As seen in Genesis 1:9-13click here, the Word/Davar is linked to trees.  Bible, codex, liber, scroll etc all trace back to trees.  In Hebrew, one of the words for matter is ‘Davar’ which means Word.

‘Mater’ in Latin also means the source/mother.  In Hebrew, the word for mother is אם ‘em’ which means ‘glue’.  This is what physical matter is, elements that are ‘glued’ together to form compounds.

A Dictionary of Word Origins pg 341 “Matter”

Matter comes via Anglo-Norman matere from Latin materia ‘matter.’  This was originally applied to the ‘hard inner wood of a tree,’ and etymologically denoted the ‘matrix’ or ‘mother’ from which the tree’s new growth came (it was derived of Latin mater ‘mother’).

Matrix of water

Biblical Basis of Modern Science pg 217

“It is significant that, long before men realized this universality of material structure, the bible had indicated that all things, including even human bodies, were made of the dust of the earth.

These basic elements were originally created (Gen. 1:1) as the fundamental components of matter in the space-matter-time cosmos (‘heavens’ – ‘earth’ – ‘beginning’) called into existence by the omnipotent Word of God (John 1:1-3).  This basic ‘unformed’ earth material (Gen. 1:2) was then ‘made ‘ or ‘formed’ by God into complex systems.  Originally suspended and dispersed in a vast matrix of water (Gen. 1:2; 2 Pet 3:5), all other elements were built up into a vast array of terrestrial and celestial bodies (1 Cor. 15:40) and, on the earth, both inorganic and living systems.”

The origin of the word matrix, comes from ‘madrigal.’

Dictionary of Word Origins pg 332 ‘Madrigal’

“Etymologically, madrigal denotes ‘a simple song, such as might just have sprung from the mother’s womb.’  It comes ultimately from medieval Latin matricalis ‘simple, primitive,’ a derivative of Latin matrix ‘womb.’

Amazingly, all matter comes forth from a matrix of water in the beginning and was manifested through sound/a song.

Elegant Universe pg 14

“Matter is composed of atoms, which in turn are made from quarks and electrons.  According to string theory, all such particles are actually tiny loops of vibrating string.”

Elegant Universe pg 15

“String theory proclaims, for instance, that the observed particle properties, are a reflection of the various ways in which a string can vibrate.  Just as the strings on a violin or on a piano have resonant frequencies at which they prefer to vibrate – patterns that our ears sense as various musical notes and their higher harmonics – the same holds true for the loops of string theory….each of the preferred patterns of vibration of a string in string theory appears as a particle whose mass and force changes are determined by the string’s oscillatory pattern.”

In short, all of creation comes forth from music.  Just as the Holy Scriptures spoke of thousands of years ago.

String theory is a part of a larger synthesis called M-Theory.  Originally the letter M in M-theory was taken from membrane, a construct designed to generalize the strings of string theory.

In M-Theory strings with closed loops free to go from one dimension to another. Interestingly, M-Theory originally spoke of 10 dimensions.  This was later expanded to 11 dimensions based on the necessary consolidation of five separate string theories to produce an 11th unifying dimension and a consistent string theory.  This is fascinating in that the Tabernacle had 11 curtains…

Exo 26:7  And you shall make curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle; you shall make eleven curtains.

The open ended loops (like floss) are tied down to our physical dimension.  These strings can be ‘stretched out’ and are called a membrane.  World is called a ‘brane’ world.  From Lat. membrana.

Membrana, Membranae
N – 1 1 – F -

membrane; skin; parchment;

Thin skin, film membrane.  The skin of a snake or the skin prepared to write on a parchment like a scroll.

2Ti 4:13  When you come, bring the cloak which I left in Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments (Greek – membrana).

The fabric of the universe.  This will be discussed in more detail below on the subject of אמש, but has an interesting parallel in the Hebrew word מד.

In Hebrew, ‘Mad’ is used to mean cloth/fabric/garment as well as stretching out/measuring.  The word matrix, is linked to the word ‘metro’ which is a city or womb/principal place where people gather.  It is related to the Greek word ‘metro’ which means to measure and is further linked to ‘madrigal’ in the word metronome which is a device used in music to measure beats/ticks.  In English, ‘mad’ traces back to the Latin mutare which means ‘change.’  This is the second most important aspect of chemistry, the study of the change of matter.

Chemistry and Change

Chemistry for Dummies pg 9

“Chemistry is the study of the composition and properties of matter and the changes it undergoes.”

“The change from one substance into another is what chemists call a chemical change, or chemical reaction, and it’s a big deal because when it occurs, a brand-new substance is created.”

Interestingly, the word ‘change’ is linked to the word ‘matter’ mentioned above through the idea of plants.  Matter has the meaning of the inner wood of a tree, change is associated with ‘cambium’ ‘a layer of plant tissue’ coined from the notion that the plant ‘changes’ in new layers.

Going back to the word matter…

In Hebrew, two words are used that have the meaning of ‘matter.’  Davar, and Chomer.

Davar = the Word/Order

Messiah is the Wordclick here

The other word in Hebrew translated as ‘matter’ is ‘chomer’

‘Chomer’ comes from ‘Cham’

Looking at the word ‘chomer’ and its root ‘cham’, it is not hard to see the connection to chemistry which is the study of matter and the change it goes through.  The milk and the enzymes in the skin bag mixing together to form cheese is a perfect example of a chemical reaction in chemistry.  To further illustrate the connection, the word for black in Hebrew ‘chom’ comes from this same root.

The word ‘chemistry’ comes from the Egyptian word ‘khemia’ meaning black.

The word ‘chemistry’ comes from the word ‘alchemy’

Today alchemy elicits thoughts of evil ‘warlocks’ trying to turn metals into gold and the ‘philosopher’s stone.’  The Philosopher’s stone points to the mark of the beast, which is a subject covering a vast amount of information which is not the point of this study but is important to address.  In the beginning, all things were good (Genesis 1:31).  It is the adversary and the wicked imaginations of man that has perverted creation and the sciences.  This is seen in all of the sciences.  Evolution vs creationism, numerology vs the biblical meaning of numbers etc.  Chemistry/alchemy is a perfect example of this, and seen below Kabbalah falls into this same realm of thought.  There is truth in Kabbalistic thought because its origins are the Scriptures and the study of creation, however due to mixture with the mystery religions it also teaches unbiblical doctrine as well.

Temple at the Center of Time pg 2

“Historically, the Scientific Revolution was united with an Occult Renaissance, the vestiges of which can be seen even today within the names of established branches of modern science.  For example, chemistry originated from alchemy, (the dark art) from the Arabic word meaning ‘from Egypt’ or from the land of Kemet, meaning ‘darkness’.  Men like Henrich Agrippa, John Dee, Kercher, Descarte, and later Leibnez and Newton created amalgamations of the religious and natural world, a world divinely ordained and regulated.

Theologians of the Renaissance proposed that because all natural mechanisms of creation originated from God, the resolution of these aspects through natural magic would validate Christianity.”

Just as Chemistry, which is a legitimate science which points to Messiah came out of alchemy/Egypt, the Scriptures allude to Messiah ‘coming out of Egypt’

Mat 2:15  And he was there until the end of Herod, that might be fulfilled that spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying, “Out of Egypt I have called My Son.” Hos. 11:1

The Apocryphal book of Wisdom claims that the origin of Chemistry is from Wisdom/Messiahclick here

Wis 7:17  For he hath given me certain knowledge of the things that are, namely, to know how the world was made, and the operation of the elements: {Chemistry}

The Elements

2Pe 3:10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with rushing sound, and having burned the elements will be dissolved, and earth and the works in it will be burned up.
2Pe 3:11  Then all these being about to be dissolved, of what sort ought you to be in holy behavior and godliness,
2Pe 3:12  looking for and hastening the coming of the Day of God, through which the heavens having been set afire will be dissolved; and burning, the elements will melt?

The elements here mentioned are linked to the Hebrew Aleph-Betclick here

Tanya, Shaar HaYichud V’haEmunah I
“If the letters (with which heaven was created) were to remove themselves for an instant, God Forbid, and return to their source, the entire heaven would become an absolute vacuum”

The Greek word translated as elements in 2 Peter 3:10 = letters

Thayer Definition:
1) any first thing, from which the others belonging to some series or composite whole take their rise, an element, first principal
1a) the letters of the alphabet as the elements of speech, not however the written characters, but the spoken sounds
1b) the elements from which all things have come, the material causes of the universe
1c) the heavenly bodies, either as parts of the heavens or (as others think) because in them the elements of man, life and destiny were supposed to reside
1d) the elements, rudiments, primary and fundamental principles of any art, science, or discipline
1d1) i.e. of mathematics, Euclid’s geometry
Part of Speech: noun neuter

The Elegant Universe by Brian Greene pg 13
“The fundamental particles of the universe that physicists have identified- electrons-neutrinos, quarks, and so on- are the ‘letters’ of all matter.”

Vincent Word Studies – 2 Peter 3:10

The elements (στοιχεῖα)
Derived from στοῖχος, a row, and meaning originally one of a row or series; hence a component or element. The name for the letters of the alphabet, as being set in rows. Applied to the four elements – fire, air, earth, water; and in later times to the planets and signs of the zodiac…The kindred verb στοιχέω, to walk, carries the idea of keeping in line, according to the radical sense. Thus, walk according to rule (Gal_6:16); walkest orderly (Act_21:24). So, too, the compound συστοιχέω, only in Gal_4:25, answereth to, lit., belongs to the same row or column with. The Greek grammarians called the categories of letters arranged according to the organs of speech συστοιχίαι. Here the word is of course used in a physical sense, meaning the parts of which this system of things is composed.

Uri Harel – Making the Case for Hebrew

“Hebrew, as a conceptual language, operates on a different principal altogether. A quick study of how words are formed in Hebrew reveals a stunning resemblance between the structure of the language, where its letters combine to form words with an inherent meaning; and the structure of the physical universe, where atoms combine into molecules to form various substances.

In the material world, each atom expresses an inherent unique property. When a combination of several atoms occurs, it becomes a molecule, which is the smallest expression of a particular material. Each of the Hebrew letters, in exactly the same way, expresses a concept. When put together in combinations with other letters (typically sets of three letters) they form the equivalent of a molecule: a Hebrew root. And from this root many words spring out, all carrying within them the three letters of the root and some of the original meaning of the concept of the root.”

The word στοιχεῖα (element), in Greek means ‘orderly, in a row’ which is precisely what scientists have found when studying the elements of the universe.

Periodic Table of Elements

Isa 40:12  He who has measured in His hand the waters and the heavens by a span meted out; and enclosed in the measure the dust of the earth, and weighed in the balance the mountains, and the hills in the scales,

There are 92 naturally occurring elements which correspond to the 92 unique words used in the Torah describing creation (Genesis 1:1 – 2:3)

Periodicity of the Periodic Table of Elements – Yitzhak Ginsburgh

“From the early rudimentary groupings of chemical compounds to our modern classification that recognizes the periodicity of atomic elements together, chemical tables are usually based on an implicit theory of the composition of matter.  These theories have shared a common axiom:  that all of the matter in the Universe is composed of finite variety of basic building blocks:  These building blocks have been known from the ancient Greeks to the present as atoms.”

92 naturally occurring elements.  The first possibility would be to map each element to its corresponding Hebrew root, simply based on order of appearance.  Further reflection though reveals an alternative.  The 92 distinct roots of the story of creation are divided such that the first 86 appear in the verses relating the first six days of creation (Genesis 1:1  through 1:31), while the last 6 are found in the verses relating the Sabbath (ibid 2:1 through 2:3).  This motivates us to correspond the 6 noble gases with the 6 distinct roots found in the Sabbath section in Genesis, while the remaining 86 elements will be corresponded in order to the distinct roots found in the 6 Days section of Genesis.  The 6 ‘noble gases’ do not form compounds, while the other 86 do form compounds with other elements.

This basic division into 6 and 86 observed in the naturally occurring elements is to be found (again, using a non-literal analysis of the Torah text) in the very first verse of Torah:
בראשׁית ברא אלהים את השׁמים ואת הארץ

It is important to note that G-d here is referred to as Elokim alone (and not by His other names), thus leading to the association of this name with ‘nature’.

4 Elements

The God Code pg 72

“In general, the basis of alchemical studies began with a single tenet stating that our world, and everything in it, is made of three simple elements….Fire, Air, and Water.  In early descriptions, although three elements are identified, those who understood the natural order of our world always implied the existence of a fourth, secret element.  The missing element, ‘Earth,’ is explicitly mentioned in later alchemical traditions.  The pre-Christian scribes of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the ancient Essenes, described all four forces of creation as ‘angels’ and named them accordingly:  the Angel of the Wind, the Angel of the Sun, the Angel of the Water, and the Angel of the Earth….Were our scientific forebearers simply telling us that heat, liquid, air, and minerals make up our bodies and all that we see?”

In the beginning Elohim created the heavens and the earth.  His Spirit (wind) moved upon the waters, and He said let there be Light (fire) which brought forth all matter (earth).  That which is taught in science and the ancient religions will always trace back to the Holy Scriptures for they are the sole basis of Truth in this world.  If there is any hint of truth in any thing, it will always trace back to the Word.  YHWH has embedded His Image in all of His creation.

Periodicity of the Periodic Table of Elements – Yitzhak Ginsburgh

“Metals and Hydrogen”
“After accounting for the 15 non-metals we now remain with 71 – these are known as metals.  However, in many renditions of the periodic table, hydrogen, the element with atomic number 1, is classified by itself.  Implying that hydrogen is for various reasons ‘above’ the classification into metals and non-metals.  How should we understand the role of hydrogen among the elements? To give an answer, we must first reintroduce the classical model of the four elements of antiquity and its modern-day correspondence.

“The classical element ‘water’ naturally corresponds to hydrogen (e.g. in modern nomenclature, the prefix ‘hydro’ denotes a ‘watery’ characteristic”

In Rabbinic thought, water corresponds to ‘Wisdom’
Psa 104:24  O YHWH, how many are Your works! You have made all of them in wisdom; the earth is full of Your riches.

“The numerical value of aleph is 1, as is the atomic number of hydrogen, strengthening our identification”

Hydrogen the ‘primal element’

Published in New York Times December 2, 1878

“Mr. Lockyer believes that in spite of the multiform aspects of the world in which we live, there is but one form of matter which is truly elementary.  The primal elements is presented to us in the shape of hydrogen…Mr. Lockyer himself has arrived, by means of the spectroscope, at the conclusion that hydrogen can no longer be regarded as a simple element.  Further, he believes he has proved that hydrogen is the one body of which the various metals and earths that have hitherto constituted the chemist’s catalogue of elements are composed.  So novel and striking an interpretation of all the phenomena of animate and inanimate nature, of all that we can see in the starry depths around us, as well as on our own globe, is difficult at first sight to entertain.  That the substance we have heretofore known as a single unit in the great cosmical laboratory should be endowed with such Protean capacities of form, is a conception which utterly eclipses all that poetry or mythology has ever inspired, and the world becomes intinitely more wonderful by such revelations as now seem to be brought within our grasp.”

All of the elements come forth from hydrogen/ie water?  This is an interesting concept, since the Torah speaks of all of creation coming forth out of water

Gen 1:1  In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth;
Gen 1:2  and the earth being without form and empty, and darkness on the face of the deep, and the Spirit of God moving gently on the face of the waters,

Messiah Yahshua is the Living Waters (John 4:10-14; 7:37-39)

Hydrogen = Aleph

Each Hebrew letter is a picture of Messiahclick here, the letter Aleph, in particular points to Messiah as Elohim.

Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet pg 45

Aleph linked to the Name

Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet pg 44

Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Interestingly, Gregg Braden, in his book ‘The God Code’, links the name YHWH to the 4 elements of the earth.  Braden associates hydrogen with the element of fire however.  Is Braden correct, or Ginzburgh correct?  Perhaps both are.  In the beginning, matter came forth from a matrix of water (Genesis 1:2) but at the same time matter sprang forth from Light (fire)click here.  Messiah is the waters (John 4:10-14; 7:37-39) & the Light (John 1:9; 8:12; 9:5; 12:46)

In the Kabbalistic book of Sepher Yetsirah (Book of Creation), which I do not recommend everyone read unless they are firmly grounded in the Holy Scriptures and are led by the Holy Spirit to do so, it is said that “The three Basics, א, מ, ש, are a great, concealed, mystical exalted secret, from which emanates Fire, Breath and Water, from which everything was created,” “Three Mothers, ש, מ, א in the Universe are Air, Water, Fire.”

The God Code pg 79

“Described through a form of ‘verbal alchemy,’ the verses show us how knowledge of the power in each letter is the key to understanding the forces of the universe:

‘He made the letter Alef king over Breath…

He made Mem king over water…

He made Shin king over fire…’

The God Code pg 103

“…following the formation of the 22 letters of creation from which all else would be formed, three letters were selected and given a place of honor and respect unlike any other letters of the alphabet.  In addition to being the ‘stuff’ that our world is made of, these letters were also to become the foundation for the name of God:  the one name by which God would be known on Earth.

‘He chose three letters from among the Elementals [in the mystery of the three mothers Alef Mem Shin] And He set them in His great Name…’

By combining the three Mother Letters, God ‘sealed’ and defined the space of his creation”

Braden links ש, מ, א to ו, ה, י, the 3 letters of YHWH’s Name.

Gregg Braden connects the letters yod, heh, vav with the elements hydrogen, nitrogen & oxygen by their ‘simple mass’.  Hydrogen 1 = yod 10 (1 + 0 = 1), Nitrogen 14 (1 + 4 = 5) and Oxygen 15 (1 + 5 = 6).

The God Code pg 113

“He chose three letters…He set them in His great name…a great, concealed, mystical exalted secret from which emanates Fire, Breath and Water, from which everything was created.”

“All that is formed, and all that is spoken, is one name.”

The God Code pg 109

“From the 118 elements known to exist, only 4 of those elements account for over 99 percent of the human body: hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and carbon.”

Hence, hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and carbon correspond to what the ancients spoke of as fire, water, air and earth.  Just as the Holy Scriptures speak of man coming from the dust of the earth (Genesis 2:7).

The God Code pg 112

“Through determining their simple mass, the elements of DNA (hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and carbon) within our bodies may now be replaced with four letters of the Hebrew alphabet: Yod, Hey, Vav, and Gimel, thus revealing that our DNA may be read literally as a translatable alphabet within each of our cells.”

The God Code pg 135

The God Code pg 136

“When we substitute modern elements for all four letters of God’s ancient name, we see a result that, at first blush, may be unexpected.  Replacing the final H in YHVH with its chemical equivalent of nitrogen, God’s name becomes the elements hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen and nitrogen (HNON) – all colorless, odorless, and invisible gases!  In other words, replacing 100 percent of God’s personal name with the elements of this world creates a substance that is an intangible, yet very real form of creation!”

“Additionally, the first chapters of Genesis relate that it is in a nonphysical form that the Creator was present during the time of creation (Genesis 1:2).  It was the ‘spirit of God’ that first moved over the face of the earth.”

“The Sepher Yetzirah further describes the first Hebrew letter to emerge from the void of creation as the Mother Letter that made the universe possible: Alef.  Through a great, mystical ‘secret’ Alef then evolved into the first element to appear in our universe, hydrogen, as well as the first letter of God’s name : Yod.”

Joh 5:43  I have come in the name of My Father, and you do not receive Me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive that one.

The God Code pg 151

Yahshua came in the likeness of man YHVG, but also in the Name of the Father YHWH.  It is interesting that Yahshua in Greek = 888.  The man of sin = 666.

The ladder connection

DNA is likened unto a ladder & functions like the Hebrew here

Each atom, from whence each element comes, is described as a ladder and functions like the Hebrew language.  Each Hebrew word has a 3 letter root, each atom consists of proton, electrons and neutrons.

Extreme stars: at the edge of creation pg 7-8

Extreme Stars: At the Edge of Creation pg 8

The letter Aleph (linked to hydrogen as mentioned above) is likened to a ladder

Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet pg 54
“Link between Heaven and Earth
Every Holy letter serves as a channel to connect heaven with earth.  The aleph is seen as a ladder placed on the ground reaching heavenward.  It consists of an upper yod and a lower yod, the upper one denoting the celestial and the lower one the mundane.  Connecting the two yuds is a diagonal vav, linking man’s physical and spiritual inclinations.  The symbolism of a ladder is manifested in Jacob’s dream (Genesis 28:12) as a symbolic vehicle by which angels – messengers of God – ascend and descend to establish communication between earthly and heavenly spheres (Ibn Ezra).
In summary: – Aleph is the channel by which the Infinite Spiritual is brough to the finite physical, represented by bet, the next letter in the Aleph -Beis”

There are some interesting connections seen here.  Messiah refers to Himself as the ladder in John 1:51.  The human chromosome from whence the DNA helix ladder is formed is in the shape of an aleph.  It is from this aleph (chromosome) that the cell is formed.  The human cell represents the bet, the house, the tabernacle.

His house/tabernacle/fabric of the universe

The Scriptures also describe the Heavens as a garment/fabric.  Psalm 102:25-26; Isaiah 34:4; 51:6; 64:1.

Beginning with Einstein, and now those who teach string theory, it is shown that the universe is actually made up of a ‘fabric’.

What is the Hebrew word for fabric?

Amazingly, אמש, the ’3 Mother letters’ mentioned above come from this root word מש.  It is interesting to note, that אמש (emesh) in Hebrew means ‘yesterday, former time, yesternight’ it means something from the past or something that is in darkness.  As mentioned above, ‘emesh’ becomes YHWH through ‘mystical’ reasonings, one of which is that אמש comes from the ‘world of tohu’ or chaos and becomes יהו in the world of ‘order.’

Platonic Solids

Recent astronomical thinking proposes the over 2000 year-old idea that our material universe and perhaps all of creation is in the basic shape of a dodecahedron.

The Dodecahedron is one of five regular or perfect geometric solids, also known as The Platonic Solids, that compose or structure the fabric of our universe or creation.

Platonic Solids

In ancient times it was believed that the Platonic Solids were the foundation of everything in the physical world.  Modern scholars ridiculed this idea until the 1980′s, when Professor Robert Moon at the University of Chicago demonstrated that the entire Periodic Table of Elements — literally everything in the physical world — is based on these same five forms.

Weyl, Clifford, Einstein, and Schroedinger agreed that the puzzle of matter would be found in the structure of space, not in point-like bits of matter. They speculated, “What we observe as material bodies and forces are nothing but shapes and variations in the structure of space. The complexity of physics and cosmology is just a special geometry.

Amazingly, it has been found that the elements of the universe are in the form of the above mentioned ‘Platonic solids’.

Robert Moon’s nucleus

Here in Dr. Robert J. Moon’s model of the nucleus, a nesting of four of the five Platonic solids similar to that conceived by Johannes Kepler to describe our solar system. Even though this model does not show the tetrahedron as the inner platonic, we know that every cube implies a tetrahedron. Four diagonally opposite vertices of the cube form the vertices of the tetrahedron, and in fact two equal tetrahedrons may be positioned inside a cube, touching all 8 vertices of the cube. The combination of two such tetrahedrons is known as Stella Octangula.

The TETRAHEDRON is the most basic of the platonic bodies. It has four corners and four regular triangles as sides. There are three pairs of othogonal edges, the total number of edges is six. It may be considered the fundamental platonic shape, since as shown below, all platonic & archimedian shapes can be constructed by mathematical functions operating over this shape.

The shortest path from one point to another on a spherical surface is along the arc of a great circle. This shortest path is called a geodesic. In particular the edges of a polyhedron can be replaced by arcs of great circles to obtain a spherical polyhedron. Each plane polygon that is a face of the polyhedron is thus transformed into a spherical polygon that is a face of the spherical polyhedron.

The TETRAHEDRAL SPHERE is the central projection of the tetrahedron onto the surface of the unit sphere. The triangular sides of the tetrahedron become spherical triangles on the surface of the sphere, a spherical tetrahedron.

Chemistry & Numbers

E.W. Bullinger – Number in Scripture pg 11-15

Here we are met with a field of research in which constant discoveries are being made. Chemistry is worthy of the name Science. Here are no theories and hypotheses, which deprive other so-called sciences of all title to the name. Science is Scientia, knowledge, that which we know, and what we know is truth which can never alter. Chemistry, for example, is not like geology, whose old theories are constantly being superseded by new ones. If we know the action of a certain substance, then our knowledge never changes. But side by side with this unchangeable truth there is the constant discovery of new truths.

All matter is made up of certain combinations of various elements, which are its ultimate, indecomposable constituents. Not that these elements are absolutely simple, but that hitherto they have not been decomposed. Some of these have been known from the most ancient times, while others are of quite recent discovery. Hence their number is slowly being increased. In 1874 there were 64; now there are about 70.

But though their total number cannot yet be known, the law by which they are arranged has been discovered. This law is complex, but perfect.

1. All the elements when magnetized fall into two classes. One class immediately ranges itself east and west, at right angles to the line of magnetic force (which is north and south), and is hence called Diamagnetic (i.e. through or across the magnet); while the other immediately ranges itself by the side of and parallel to the magnetic pole (i.e. north and south), and is called Paramagnetic (i.e. by the side of the magnet).

2. Further, it is observed that these elements have other properties. Some combine with only one atom of another element, and are called Monads; some combine with only two atoms of another element, and are called Diads; some combine with only three, and are called Triads: while those that combine with four are called Tetrads, etc.

3. Now when the elements are arranged, first on the two sides of the dividing line, according to their Diamagnetic and Paramagnetic characters; and then placed on lines according to their properties as Monads, Diads, etc.; and further, are arranged in the order of their atomic weights,* the result is seen in the accompanying illustration [Reynold's Curve of the Elements according to the Newlands-Mendelejeff Periodic Law], which exhibits the presence and working of a wonderful law.

* The atomic weight is the smallest weight according to which different elements combine; e.g. hydrogen, whose atomic weight is 2, will combine with oxygen, whose atomic weight is 16, forming water. With carbon, whose atomic weight is 12, it combines also the same proportion of 2 to 12 (or 1 to 6). These are what are called the atomic weights, or the “combining proportions.”

On carefully examining this table it will be seen,—

Thus we have an introversion of seven elements alternated throughout the entire series.

2. Next observe that each time the line crosses upward from right to left there is a group of three neutral elements that occur together, near the atomic weights of 60, 100, and 190. So perfect is the law that the discoverers believe that about the points 20 and 155 there are yet two sets of three elements to be discovered…

3. Also observe that when the lines pass upward from left to right there are no elements whatever on this neutral line, and therefore we do not expect any to be discovered.

4. Further, that there are others which will yet be discovered to fill in the gaps that are left vacant, above the weights 145. A few years ago the number stood at 64. The present list contains 69. Some newly-discovered elements have been brought under notice while writing these words. They are Cerium, 141.5; Neodymium, 140.8; Praseodunium, 143.6; and “Ytterbium,” 173. These with others that may yet be discovered will fill up some of the gaps that remain.

5. There is an element whose atomic weight is a multiple of 7 (or very nearly so) for every multiple up to 147, while the majority of the others are either square numbers (or multiples of a square number), multiples of 11, or cube numbers. Indeed we may say that every important element is a multiple of either 4 or 7; gold, the most valuable, for example, being 196 (4×72); iron, the most useful, 56 (7×23); silver being 108 (4×27, or 22×33), copper 63 (7×9), carbon 12 (3×4), mercury 200 (4×50), bismuth 208 (4×52), etc.*

* Where the others are not exact multiples of these numbers, they are so nearly exact that the slight uncertainty in the accepted weights might account for some of the differences.

6. Note that all the parts of the image which Nebuchadnezzar saw in his dream are here, and they are all on the left or diamagnetic side; that is to say, they are at cross purposes with the line of Divine government! The three which are pure and unmixed are all on the same line of monads—”gold,” “silver,” and “copper,”—while the fourth, “iron,” is neutral, neither for nor against, like the fourth power, which is both religious and at the same time antichristian. The heaviest is at the top and the lightest at the bottom, as though to show us that the image being top-heavy is not destined to stand. Three have already passed away; the fourth is approaching its end; and presently, the “power” which was committed to the Gentiles shall be given to Him “whose right it is,” and the fifth monarchy (illustrated by the Rock out of which all the others proceed) shall swallow all up when the kingdoms of this world shall become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ.

Thus the very elements of matter are all arranged according to number and law. When this law was first spoken of, it appeared to some chemists to be as absurd as suggesting that the alphabetical arrangement could be the scientific or natural order.

But here we have a natural, or rather, we should say, a Divine order. For the elements, when arranged according to the weights and properties which God has given to them, are found to fall into this wondrous order. Here there can be no room for human fancy, but all is the result of knowledge, or science truly so called.

Solid, Liquid, Gas

Now there are three states and conditions of Spirit, the ultimate source and substance of all things visible and invisible:

(1. The Father; 2. The Word or Son; and 3. The Holy Spirit).

Matter is created from Spirit or is Spirit materialized into its lowest state. Physical matter must reflect the characteristics of Spirit, the parent source and substance, just as man or any other life form inherits or reflects the characteristics or traits genetically of his parents. Thus matter must be three-fold to reflect the three states of Spirit. The three states of matter are:

1. Gas

2. Liquid

3. Solid

And all matter is composed of atoms which are also three-fold:

1. Proton

2. Neutron

3. Electron.

By comparing the characteristics of each state of matter with the Godhead, one is able to understand or conceptualize the three states of spirit. For example, the gaseous state of matter is invisible, likened unto Yahweh Pure Spirit, who is also invisible, incomprehensible, and inscrutable, the source and substance of all things visible (Physical realm) and invisible (Angelic Realm). The next state of matter is liquid that is visible, and takes on the form of its container. Liquid can be likened unto Elohim that takes on shape and form of a man in visions and revelations within the confines of man’s mind (Exo. 24:9-10; Ezek. 1:26). The lowest state of matter is solid that is concrete and has a definite shape and volume, likened unto Elohim or the Word made flesh (who the world calls Jesus Christ), who can be observed with the physical senses (I Tim. 3:16). These analogies and comparisons of the three states of matter with the three states of spirit prove the nature and operation of Spirit and enables one to have the correct image of it.

From the above comparative analysis, the tabernacle pattern, or the “Philosophical Measuring Rod,” proves that there are three manifestations or states and conditions of the One Spirit (Deut. 6:4) as compared with the states of matter:

1. Yahweh, The Pure Spirit -Abstract State, (Most Holy Place by the Pattern) the invisible, inscrutable principle has no shape and form and often depicts Himself as a cloud. This correlates with the gaseous state of matter.  (Lev. 16:2; Deut. 4:12; Matt. 17:5)

2. Elohim, the Word or Son -Intermediate State, (Holy Place by the Pattern) is visible only in visions and revelations. Elohim is Spirit or the Father, in part not totality, in shape and form of a man (Ex. 24:9-10; Jn. 1:1-4; 5:37). This is correlated with the liquid state of matter.

3. Yahshua the Messiah-Concrete State, (Court Round About by the Pattern) or Jesus Christ is Elohim in a physical body, the visible manifestation of Spirit (Col. 1:15-17; Jn. 1:14). This is correlated with the solid state of matter.

Matter & Energy

Matter & Energy are the two basic components of the universe.

Chemistry for Dummies pg 15

“…all you see is matter and energy.  There are many kinds of matter and many kinds of energy, but when all is said and done, you’re left with these two things.  Scientists used to believe that these two were separate and distinct, but now they realize that matter and energy are linked.

As seen above, matter goes back to the word ‘davar’ which means order.  Energy comes from ‘light’ which is the Hebrew word ‘ohr’ which means order.

Light comes from the following root word:

Word comes from the following root word:

By looking at the gematria of the phrase ‘let there be light’ we see another connection to the Word


Energy & Light

Biblical Basis for Modern Science pg 225

Biblical Basis for Modern Science pg 227-228
“The Energy of Sound and Heat:
Sound is another form of energy, moving out as a wave from its source…’So then faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the word of God.  But I say, Have they not heard?  Yes verily, their sound went into all the earth, and their words unto the ends of the world’ (Rom. 10:17-18)
This passage is quoted by Paul from Psalm 19:4.  The latter part of the verse refers to the sun and calls attention to the heat energy radiated from the sun to all the earth, providing the warmth necessary for life to be sustained.  The same energy source also produces the thunder associated with the rains.  Thus the heat energy from the sun is almost as important as the light energy therefrom and, of course, we have already noted that heat is really a form of light….Therefore, heat energy, like sound energy, is pictured to us as analogous to the process whereby the Word of God through the testimony of Christians, both individually and corporately, is used to witness and convert.”


The Basic unit of chemistry is the atom consisting of a positively charged core (atomic nucleus) which contains protons and neutrons.
An atom is the basic unit of chemistry. It consists of a positively charged core (the atomic nucleus) which contains protons and neutrons, and which maintains a number of electrons  to balance the positive charge in the nucleus. The atom is also the smallest entity that can be envisaged to retain some of the chemical properties of the element, such as electronegativity, ionization potential, preferred oxidation state(s), coordination number, and preferred types of bonds to form (e.g., metallic, ionic, covalent).

Dictionary of Word Origins pg 41 ‘Atom’

Etymologically, atom means ‘not cut, indivisible.’  Greek atomos ‘that which cannot be divided up any further.’

‘Atom’ further traces back to the Hebrew word ‘adam’ which means man.  This points to Messiah Yahshua the ’2nd Adam’ (1 Corinthians 15:45) and is further seen in the word ‘tome’ from whence atom (don’t tome) comes.

The word tome (Greek: τόμος), which originally meant a slice or piece and from there began to denote “a roll of papyrus”. Tomus was used by the Latins with exactly the same meaning as volumen which means a roll/scroll.

The volume of the Scroll is written about Messiah

Psa 40:7  Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume of the book it is written of me,

‘Tome’ is the root of the word anatomy

In the same passage of Scripture mentioned above in reference to Messiah, it speaks of the body being given to Him.

Heb 10:5  For this reason, coming into the world, He says, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but You prepared a body for Me.
Heb 10:6  You did not delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices concerning sins.”
Heb 10:7  “Then I said, Lo, I come, in the heading of the Book
(Biblion) it was written concerning Me, to do Your will, O God.” LXX-Psa. 39:7 -9; MT-Psa. 40:6 -8

‘Atomic glue’/’gluons’

All mass in the universe is made up of atoms.  The atomic nuclei is made up of protons which are positively charged.  According to Coulomb’s law, positive charged things repel each other.  Therefore, each atom would ‘fall apart’ if it wasn’t for a force that holds them together.  This ‘force’ is known as ‘atomic glue’ or ‘gluon’.  The Scriptures define this force as Yahshua Ha’moshiach (Colossians 1:17; Hebrews 1:3)

“The atom plays a vital part in God’s creation. All matter is comprised of atoms. The atom is made up of electrons and protons, which are really not solids, but positive and negative charges of electricity. The atom has a dense center called the nucleus. Inside the nucleus are the neutrons and protons. The neutrons have no electrical charge and are therefore neutral; but the protons have positive charges.

One law of electricity is that like charges repel one another. Therefore, since the protons inside the nucleus are all positive charges, they should repel one another and scatter, but for some reason they do not. There is a binding force, not yet understood, holding them together. In addition, when the neutrons of the atom are smashed, they scatter into parts which become electrons and protons and a multitude of other kinds of particles—the number of which staggers the imagination.

Around the nucleus of the atom whirl the particles called electrons (which have negative electrical charges) at billions of times every millionth of a second. These opposite charges of electricity attract each other; the protons and electrons pull at each other, keeping the electrons from dispersing. From where did this electrical charge come which holds the atoms together in such a specific manner? What force causes these electrons to orbit the nucleus of the atom at such an unbelievable speed?

What is the binding force of an atom? Scientists have discovered this binding force and its properties have been worked out mathematically, but they do not know what it is or how it got there. Recently they have found two new forces within the atom called the pi-mesons. They believe the pi-mesons may be the energy holding things together. It is totally invisible; it can’t be seen, felt, tasted or weighed. But it is there! What is this nuclear glue? Though man can continue to observe and research the atom, discovering how it works and of what it is comprised, the question still remains: Who is the creator and the controller of these incredible forces? Did it all come about by unintelligent chance or was there intelligence involved? If so, whose?

…In him (Christ) all things hold together (Colossians 1:17 NIV).

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word (Hebrews 1:3 NIV).”


A molecule is the smallest indivisible portion, besides an atom, of a pure chemical substance that has its unique set of chemical properties, that is, its potential to undergo a certain set of chemical reactions with other substances.

Etymologically, molecule comes from two Latin words.  ‘Mole’ which means a large, completed structure or a mass and ‘cule’ which means to gather something out by choosing.

The Latin ‘mole’ traces back to the Hebrew word ‘male’

‘Male’ comes from the root ‘mal’

‘Cule’ comes from the Latin meaning to gather something out by choosing.  This word traces back to the Hebrew ‘qahal’, a calling out or gathering.  Hence, molecule, means a complete gathering of words/letters/elements.  On a deeper level, it is a picture of Messiah and his body/bride.


Molecules/compounds are formed by two types of bondings.  Covalent and ionic bonding.

Compounds that have ionic bonds are commonly called salts.

Ionic bonds form because elements seek to fill their ‘valence energy level’ which is not complete.

Chemistry for Dummies pg 87

Achieving a filled (complete) valence energy level is a driving force in nature in terms of chemical reactions, because that’s when elements are stable, or ‘satisfied.’

Designer Universe pg 140

“An atom is most stable when it contains eight electrons in its outermost shell, hence, the unreactivity of the noble gases.  Chemical reactions involve atoms shuffling electrons until each acquires eight electrons in their outermost shells.”

This is known as the octet rule.  Interestingly, the desire for atoms to have an outershell of 8 electrons points to Messiah.  The Hebrew word for eight is ‘shemoneh’ which comes from the root ‘shemen’ which means oil/spirit.

‘Shemen’ comes from ‘shem’ which means ‘name’.

Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Further connecting to Messiah, the name Yahshua in Greek = 888

In the Hebrew alphabet, the letter ‘Chet’ equals 8.  The letter ‘chet’ is a ‘wall’, something that surrounds and protects or completes, a perfect picture of the outer shell of an atom.

Chemistry for Dummies pg 86

“If you really stop and think about it, the process of creating table salt is pretty remarkable.  You take two substances that are both very hazardous and from them you make a substance that’s necessary for life.”

Chemistry for Dummies pg 89

“The Na’ (sodium) attracts the CL (chlorine) anion and forms the compound NaCl, or table salt. This is an example of an ionic bond, which is a chemical bond (a strong attractive force that keeps two chemical elements together) that comes from the electrostatic attraction (attraction of opposite charges) between cations and anions.”

“The compounds that have ionic bonds are commonly called salts. In sodium chloride, a crystal is formed in which each sodium cation is surrounded by six different chloride anions, and each chloride anion is surrounded by six different sodium cations.

Below is the crystal structure of salt

The body of Messiah is likened unto salt

Mat 5:13  You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt becomes tasteless, with what shall it be salted? For it has strength for nothing any more but to be thrown out and to be trampled under by men.

Notice that the body of Messiah, the 12 tribes, is structured after the same structure as salt seen above.

Rev 21:9  And one of the seven angels came to me, he having the seven bowls being filled with the seven last plagues, and spoke with me, saying, Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.
Rev 21:10  And he carried me in spirit onto a great and high mountain, and showed me the great city, holy Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God,
Rev 21:11  having the glory of God. And its light was like a very precious stone, as a jasper stone, being clear as crystal,
Rev 21:12  and having a great and high wall, having twelve gates, and twelve angels at the gates and names having been inscribed, which are of the twelve tribes of the sons of Israel.
Rev 21:13  From the east, three gates; from the north, three gates; from the south, three gates; and from the west, three gates.
Rev 21:14  And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.

By themselves, sodium and chlorine are deadly.  But when they join together, seeking 8 (Messiah), they become life.
