Shadows of Messiah

Biology = the study of life.

G979
βίος
bios

Luk 8:14  And those falling in the thorn bushes, these are those hearing, but under cares and riches and pleasures of life, moving along, they are choked, and do not bear to maturity.
1Jn 3:17  Whoever has the means of life (KJV goods) of the world, and sees his brother having need, and shuts up his heart of compassion from him, how does the love of God abide in him?

Robertson Word Pictures

The world’s goods (ton bion tou kosmou). “The living or livelihood (not zōē, the principle of life, and see 1Jo_2:16 for bios) of the world” (not in the sense of evil or wicked, but simply this mundane sphere).

What is life?

Joh 14:6  Jesus said to him, I am the Wayclick here, and the Truthclick here, andthe Life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.

Through looking at the Biblical definition of Life, we see that God=Jesus=the Word=The Torah=the Holy Spirit.  Through the study of biology, man is led to the knowledge of the Most High.  Through the study of natural lifeclick here, one is led to the source of that life and the ultimate definition of the word.

God IS OUR LIFE

Ancient Hebrew definition

Chay Life

Man does not live by bread (lechem-food, sustenance) but by every WORD that proceeds from the mouth of the LORD.

The Scriptures liken the Word to bread/food.  When our bellies are full of the Word of God/Jesus we have life.  When our bellies are empty of the Word/Messiah we are dead, we are walking in darkness.

Psa 102:4  My heart is stricken and dried like grass, so that I forget to eat my bread.
TARGUM
5.     My heart is smitten like grass and will dry up; for I have forgotten the Torah of my instruction.

Manna

Psa 78:23  And He commanded the fine clouds above; and He opened the doors of the heavens;
Psa 78:24  and He rained on them manna to eat; yea, He gave the grain
(dagan) of the heavens to them.
Psa 78:25  Man ate the bread of the mighty
(abiyr); He sent them food (KJV meat tsedah=provision) to the full.

Angels food=Manna=Torah/the Word=Jesus

Deu 8:2  And you shall remember all the way which Jehovah your God has caused you to go these forty years in the wilderness, in order to humble you, to try you, to know that which is in your heart, whether you will keep His commandments or not.
Deu 8:3  And He has humbled you, and caused you to hunger, and caused you to eat the manna, which you had not known, and your fathers had not known, in order to cause you to know that man shall not live by bread alone, but man shall live by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of Jehovah.
Deu 8:4  Your clothing did not wear out on you, and your foot did not swell, these forty years.
Deu 8:5  And you have known with your heart that as a man disciplines his son, Jehovah your God disciplines you.
Deu 8:6  And you shall keep the commandments of Jehovah your God, to walk in His ways, and to fear Him.

Being brought into the promised land is connected with food (having a full belly -chay- life)
Deu 8:7  For Jehovah your God brings you into a good land, a land of streams of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills,
Deu 8:8  a land of wheat and barley and vines and fig trees and pomegranates, a land of olive oil and honey,
Deu 8:9  a land in which you shall eat bread without want; you shall not lack anything in it; a land whose stones are iron; and you shall dig copper out of its mountains.
Deu 8:10  And you shall eat and be satisfied; and you shall bless Jehovah your God in the good land which He has given you.

Aramaic

1Pe 2:2 And become like newborn babes, and long for the word, as for pure and spiritual milk, that you may grow to salvation by it:
1Pe 2:3 If so be you have tasted and found out that the LORD is good.

That which angels seek

1Pe 1:10  About which salvation the prophets sought out and searched out, prophesying concerning the grace for you,

1Pe 1:11  searching for what, or what sort of time the Spirit of Christ made clear within them; testifying beforehand of the sufferings belonging to Christ, and the glories after these.

1Pe 1:12  To whom it was revealed that not to themselves, but to us they ministered the same things, which now were announced to you by those having preached the gospel to you in the Holy Spirit sent from Heaven; into which things angels long* to look into

*G1937
ἐπιθυμέω
epithumeō
Thayer Definition:
1) to turn upon a thing
2) to have a desire for, long for, to desire
3) to lust after, covet
3a) of those who seek things forbidden (hidden)

What is the Hebrew word for hidden?

Hidden Matza

The word matza (unleavened bread) comes from the root word matza meaning something hidden or squeezed.  Salvation (yeshua) is connected to matza (unleavened bread).

Unleavened Bread is a picture of Messiah.  Matsa is pierced, bruised and striped which points back to Isaiah 53, where the Right Arm of the LORD is revealed.  The Right Arm of the LORD= the Light of His Face (lechem paniym)

Psa 44:3  For they did not inherit the land with their own sword; yea, their own arm did not save them. But it was Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your face, because You favored them.

Table of Showbread (Lechem Paniym)

Jesus is His paniym (presence, face)

Psa 42:5  O my soul, why are you cast down and moan within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet thank Him for the salvation of His presence.

Yeshua face

Psa 44:3  For they did not inherit the land with their own sword; yea, their own arm did not save them. But it was Your right hand (Messiah Exo 15) and Your arm (Messiah Isa 53) and the light of Your face, because You favored them.

Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor of His glory, and the express image of His essence, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, having made purification of our sins through Himself, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high, Psa. 110:1

The bread of the Presence sat upon a table.  The Hebrew word for table is Shulchan.  Coming from the root shalach meaning to send out.  It is the word that is translated as Apostle.

Apostles take for the Bread of Life to the world
Isa 52:7  How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him proclaiming good news, making peace heard, bearing tidings of good, making heard salvation (Heb. yeshua), saying to Zion, Your God reigns.
Joh 4:32  But He said to them, I have food to eat which you do not know.
Joh 4:33  Then the disciples said to one another, No one brought Him food to eat?
Joh 4:34  Jesus said to them, My food is that I should do the will of Him who sent Me, and that I may finish His work.
Joh 6:51  I am the Living Bread that came down from Heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever. And indeed the bread which I will give is My flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.

Bread=His flesh=Basar=Gospel

Basar Gospel Flesh

Man was made in the image of God (Genesis1:26)…Messiah is the Image of God (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4), hence when we look at the human body it points to Messiah.  The body as a whole, and each individual body part speaks the Gospel.

The Gospel is connected w/flesh. Where is the first reference to flesh? The union of Adam and Eve…a picture of Jesus and His Bride becoming one the fulfillment of the Good News.
Gen 2:21  And Jehovah God caused a deep sleep to fall on the man, and he slept. And He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh underneath.
Gen 2:22  And Jehovah God formed the rib which He had taken from the man into a woman, and brought her to the man.
Gen 2:23  And the man said, This now at last is bone from my bones, and flesh from my flesh. For this shall be called Woman, because this has been taken out of man.
Gen 2:24  Therefore, a man shall leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave to his wife and they shall become one flesh
Eph 5:30  For we are members of His body, of His flesh, and of His bones.
Eph 5:31  “For this, a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall be joined to his wife, and the two shall be one flesh.”
Gen. 2:24
Eph 5:32  The mystery is great, but I speak as to Christ and as to the assembly.

The word for bride is:

This comes from the root ‘kol’ which is related to the belly (chay-life):

The Hebrew word for food comes from this same root:

The English word cell comes from this Hebrew root.  The human cell is designed just as the Tabernacle/Temple.  DNA, in the nucleus of the cell is the blueprint for life & the flesh.  It corresponds to the 10 commandments and the Torah in the Holy of Holies of the Tabernacle.

Cell -early 12c., “small room,” from L. cella “small room, store room, hut,” related to L. celare “to hide, conceal,” from PIE base *kel- “conceal”

This corresponds perfectly to the Temple/Tabernacle of God

Eze 7:22  I also will turn My face from them, and they shall defile My hidden place. And violent ones shall enter into it and defile it.

The Temple & the Body

In His Shadow/Image

Gen 1:26  And God said, let Us make man in Our image*, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the heavens, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over all the creepers creeping on the earth.
Gen 1:27  And God created the man in His own image*; in the image* of God He created him. He created them male and female.

*H6754

Psa 61:4  I will dwell in Your tabernacle* forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.

*The Tabernacle/His House = the abiding in His Wings

Zion = His habitation…Zion = His people (Isaiah 51:16)

Psa 132:13  For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.
2Co 6:16  And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

Under His Wings=the apple of His Eye=the Little Guy in His Eyeclick here=His covenant Bride=His Body

Psa 63:7  For You have been a help to me, and I will rejoice under the shadow of Your wings.

Psa 63:8  My soul is cleaved (clings Deu 10:20; 11:22) after You; Your right hand (Messiah) upholds me.

Abiding in the cleft of the rock = abiding under the shelter of His wings

Psa 61:4 I will dwell in Your tabernacle forever; I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Selah.

Abiding in the Tabernacle = abiding in the shelter of His wings

Rev 7:15  Because of this they are before the throne of God, and serve Him day and night in His sanctuary. And He sitting on the throne will spread His tabernacle over them.

Psa 27:5  For in the day of evil He shall hide me in His shelter (sukkah**); in the secrecy of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me up on a rock.

**Sukkot connection:

Rev 21:3  And I heard a great voice out of Heaven, saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God with men! And He will tabernacle with them, and they will be His people, and God Himself will be with them as their God.

Joh 1:14  And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and of truth.

Exo 33:22  And as My glory is passing it will be that I will put you in a cleft of the rock; and I will cover (sakak from סך) My hand over you during My passing.

Dwelling in the cleft of the rock is associated with hiding under the shelter of His wings which is a term of intimacy.click here

As seen in Genesis 1:2click here, The Spirit of God hovering over the waters is likened to a bird hovering/overshadowing her chicks.

1Co 15:46  But not the spiritual first, but the natural*; afterward the spiritual.

*G5591
ψυχικός
psuchikos

Psuchikos means ‘of or belonging to breath.’  It is that which has been ‘animated’ by the Most High.  In the beginning, His Spirit moved upon the waters and brought forth the natural things that we see today.  In Hebrew the act of ‘moving/hovering’ over the waters is like unto a bird overshadowing her chicks.  It is at this point that God said let there be light and matter came forth into His creation.  The overshadowing of His wings and the light that came forth teaches that all of His creation/all of nature is embedded with His Image.  All of His creation was made to point to Him.

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

Joh 1:14  And the Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. And we beheld His glory, glory as of an only begotten from the Father, full of grace and of truth.

1b) every living soul
2) life
2a) of the absolute fulness of life, both essential and ethical, which belongs to God, and through him both to the hypostatic “logos” and to Christ in whom the “logos” put on human nature
2b) life real and genuine, a life active and vigorous, devoted to God, blessed, in the portion even in this world of those who put their trust in Christ, but after the resurrection to be consummated by new accessions (among them a more perfect body), and to last for ever.

The word for beast in Hebrew comes from the same root word of life ‘chay’.

Job 35:11  מלפנו מבהמות ארץ ומעוף השׁמים יחכמנו׃

“He teaches us from the animals of the land, and from the birds of the Heavens He makes us wise.” (Job 35:11)

Job 12:7  But now please ask the animals, and they will teach you; and the birds of the heavens, and they will tell you;
Job 12:8  or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; and the fish of the sea will recount to you;
Job 12:9  who of all these does not know that Jehovah’s hand has done this,
Job 12:10  in whose hand is the soul of every living thing, and the breath of all flesh, even of man?

This cryptic verse is explained in the Babylonian Talmud: “Rabbi said: Had the Bible not been given to us, we would have learned modesty from the cat, [the prohibition of] theft from the ant, and [the prohibition of] forbidden relationships from the dove” (Talmud, Eruvin 100b).

7 Divisions of the Animal Kingdom

http://www.critterzone.com/magazineresource/animal-kingdom-class-definitions.htm

MAMMALS

Mammals are vertebrates that have hair, and the females have mammary glands that produce milk for their young. These glands only become active after bearing young, and are a product of epithelial cells underneath the skin. Mammals can be categorized into three groups. Monotremes lay eggs. Marsupials have a pouch to nurse their young, which are born in an undeveloped state. Placentals’ young are nourished and develop in the uterus. Mammals are warm-blooded or endothermic, meaning they have a constant warm body temperature that’s internally regulated.

REPTILES

Reptiles are cold-blooded vertebrates that breathe with lungs and have skin covered in scales. Most reptiles are amniotic egg layers, though some give birth to their young. The classification of reptiles includes alligators and crocodiles, turtles and tortoises, lizards and snakes, and the endangered tuatara of New Zealand.

AMPHIBIANS

Amphibia are a class of vertebrates that includes toads, frogs, newts and salamanders. Amphibians generally spend part of their lives in water and part on dry land. They develop in two stages where the larval state is generally aquatic, when they may breathe with gills. Then they go through a metamorphosis, which adapts them to life on dry land. Their skin has no scales but is soft and moist. They lay their eggs in moist environments due to the lack of an amniotic membrane. Amphibians are cold-blooded, or ectothermic, animals, which have a variable body temperature that’s regulated by their external environment. Because of this many amphibians hibernate during the winter.

BIRDS

Birds, the largest number of tetrapod vertebrates, are warm-blooded egg layers and are unique in their covering of feathers. While most birds can fly, some, such as the ostrich and penguin are flightless, but all have forelimbs that have evolved into wings. Their feathers developed from scales and provide a flight surface, while scales on their legs can still be seen today. While most birds are active during the day, some, such as the owl, are active at night. Birds are very popular animals as can be seen by the hobbies of birding and birdwatching.

FISH

Most fish are cold-blooded, entirely aquatic vertebrates that have paired fins, torpedo-like bodies, and lay eggs. Many breathe by means of gills, but a few breath atmospheric air via lung-like organs or other adaptations of their bodies. A few saltwater fish, such as tuna, swordfish, and some sharks, are able to maintain body temperatures above that of the surrounding water. Many fish have highly developed senses of sight and smell, as well as the ability to detect movement and vibration in the water with their lateral line organ. Scales are commonly found on bony fish, while some fish, such as catfish and eels, have no scales. Fish are very popular animals, as a commercial food source, in sport fishing, and as entertainment in public aquariums and private fish tanks.

ARTHROPOD, INSECTS

Insects are animals that have exoskeletons. An external skeleton of chitin supports their body structure, which is comprised of three parts, head, thorax and abdomen. They have six legs that occur in pairs and most have wings. Insects belong to the subphylum Hexapoda, which means six legs in Greek. Insects are the most numerous and prolific group in the animal kingdom. Their heads have compound eyes, antennae and mouthparts, which vary in design from wasp and beetle chewing to piercing as in aphids and mosquitoes. Insects are sensitive to their environment, from their compound eyes, to tiny hairs on their antennae and bodies, which are sensitive to touch, taste and smell. Insects generally go through a transformation from young to adult, beginning with either larval or nymph states. Larvae typically shed exoskeletons in molts, or go through a pupa state, before transforming into their adult form.

ARTHROPOD, ARACHNIDS

Arachnids are insect-like arthropods with bodies comprised of two parts, the abdomen and the cephalothorax, which contains the head and thorax. The word Arachnid is derived from a Greek word meaning spider. In comparison to insects, their eyes are simple instead of compound. They lack wings and antennae, and have four pairs of legs instead of the six found in insects. Arachnida as a group include scorpions, spiders, ticks and mites. Most arachnids are carnivorous, but some are parasitic. Others are herbivorous and destroy commercial crops. Some arachnids have a bite or sting that’s poisonous to humans. Most spiders can inject venom, though only a minority, for example, the black widow, are harmful to humans.

In order to study living things, scientists classify each organism according to its:

1) Kingdom

2) Phylum

3) Class

4) Order

5) Family

6) Genus

7) Species

Going back to anatomy and the human body, this division of  7 is seen in the physiology of man.

E.W. Βullinger – Number in Scripture

PHYSIOLOGY

offers a vast field for illustration, but here again the grand impress is seen to be the number seven. The days of man’s years are “Three-score years and ten” (7×10). In seven years the whole structure of his body changes: and we are all familiar with “the seven ages of man.”

There are seven Greek words used to describe these seven ages, according to Philo:—

The study of the animal kingdom is divided into portions of 7, corresponding to the menorah.  The menorah is a picture of the body of Messiah, which links the study of human anatomy to zoology.

Life & Light are linked through Messiah.

Joh 1:4  In Him was life , and the life was the light of men;

The above portion of Scripture in John 1 declares Messiah is the Creatorclick here.  His Image was embedded into all of His creation when He hovered over the waters and spoke light/matter into existence.  Interestingly, this word for hover ‘rachaph’, comes from the same root word חף, as the word for ‘chuppah’ (marriage canopy).  This theme of the bride under the shadow of His wings is seen yet again.

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,
Gen 1:3  then God said, Let light be! And there was light.

‘The Spirit of God hovered over/moving over the waters’

The word translated as hovered comes from the following:

Here we see imagery of a bird hovering over its nest.  The LORD/Jesus is described in this same imagery.

Deu 32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste, a howling wilderness. He encircled him and cared for him; He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.

Mat 23:37  Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning those sent to her. How often I desired to gather your children in the way a bird gathers her chicks under her wings! And you did not desire it.

רחף comes from the root:

Messiah is the door that we enter in order to abide in His ‘House’ (John10:7) it is through Him that we are covered/hidden.  This is the definition of who the Israel of God is (Galatians 6:16)…His hidden ones (Psalm 83:3).  It is by the covenant cut in Messiah (Daniel 9:26; Isaiah 42:6) by His sacrifice on the tree that we are covered (1 John 1:7).  It is through His Outstretched Arms (wings) that Messiah is calling us (John 3:14; 12:32) and gathering us together as a Shepherd does His flock (John 10:14-16).  This is how we enter the Door into the House, this is how we are declared innocent and pure in His eyes.  This is how we become His friends and enter into His tents in an intimate relationship click here.

חפ is the root for the word ‘Chuppah’/wedding canopy

Abiding under the shadow of His wings and being in ‘marriage covenant’ with Him through Messiah is one and the same thing.

The canopy as a covering is connected with being the ‘little guy in His eyesclick here

Zec 2:8  For so says Jehovah of Hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations who plundered you; for he who touches you touches the pupil of His eye.

Zec 2:5 And I will be to her a wall of fire all around, and I will be for glory in her midst, declares Jehovah.

Isa 4:2  In that day the Branch of Jehovah will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth for pride and for glory for the survivors of Israel.
Isa 4:3  And it shall be, he remaining in Zion, and he who is left in Jerusalem, shall be called holy, every one who is written among the living in Jerusalem;
Isa 4:4  when the Lord shall have washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion, and the blood of Jerusalem shall have been rinsed away from its midst by a spirit of judgment, and by a spirit of burning.
Isa 4:5  Then Jehovah will create a cloud and smoke by day, and the shining of a flaming fire by night, over all the site of Mount Zion, and over her assemblies; for on all the glory will be a canopy
(chuppah).
Isa 4:6  And there shall be a booth for a shade from the heat, and for a refuge, and for a hiding place from storm and rain.

Under His wings = under His skirt/kanaph.

This is a term of intimacy between a man and His wife.

Deu 22:30  A man shall not take his father’s wife, and shall not uncover his father’s skirt.

Rth 3:9  And he said, Who are you? And she said, I am your handmaid Ruth, and you shall spread your skirt over your handmaid, for you are a kinsman redeemer.

Eze 16:8  And I passed by you, and I looked on you, and, behold, your time was the time of love. And I spread My skirt over you and covered your nakedness. And I swore to you and entered into a covenant with you, declares the Lord Jehovah. And you became Mine.

Kerubim

Cherubim overshadowed the ark of the covenant with their wings…abiding under His wings=abiding in His Word/Jesus.  The Kerubim were those who guarded the Tree of Life.  When we are abiding under the shadow of His wings we are entering back spiritually in the Garden.  See PaRDeSclick here studies.

Kerubim

Exo 25:20  And the cherubs shall be spreading out wings above, covering the mercyseat with their wings, and their faces each toward its brother; the faces of the cherubs shall be toward the mercyseat.

The image of the Menorah is related to Genesis 1:2.  As mentioned above, Messiah on the cross/tree with His outstretched arms points back to Genesis 1:2 and the spirit hovering over the waters/bird overshadowing her brood.

Was the crucifixion really an image of the Menorah?

The Scriptures speak of the crucifixion being on a tree
Act 5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom you seized, hanging Him on a tree.
Act 10:39 And we are witnesses of all things which He did, both in the country of the Jews, and in Jerusalem. They did away with Him, hanging Him on a tree.
Act 13:29 And when they finished all the things having been written concerning Him, taking Him down from the tree, they laid Him in a tomb.
Gal 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us; for it has been written, “Cursed is everyone having been hung on a tree;”
Deut. 21:23
1Pe 2:24 who “Himself carried up in His body our sins” onto the tree; that dying to sins, we might live to righteousness, of whom “by His wound you were healed.”

Jesus was crucified in the midst of two thieves

Joh 19:18 where they crucified Him, and two others with Him, on this side and on that side, and Jesus in the middle.

Traditionally this is the image that is portrayed of the crucifixion.

But if this were the case the following Scripture would make no sense.

Joh 19:31 Then, since it was Preparation, that the bodies not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for great was the day of that sabbath, the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and they be taken away.
Joh 19:32 Then the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first, and of the other crucified with Him.
Joh 19:33 But on coming to Jesus, when they saw He was dead already, they did not break His legs.

Why would the soldiers break the legs of the 1st and 3rd person and then go to Jesus last? If they were all crucified on one tree this would make perfect sense as they would make a circle starting from the 1st thief and working around to the Messiah.  If Messiah and the two thieves were crucified on a single tree then the image that would have been formed would have been a menorah.

Another hint of this is seen in the following verse:

Joh 19:31  Then, since it was Preparation, that the bodies not remain on the cross on the sabbath, for great was the day of that sabbath, the Jews asked Pilate that their legs might be broken and they be taken away.

Notice it says bodies (plural) should not remain on the cross (singular).  The text seems to indicate that all 3 bodies were on a single ‘cross’ which in Greek would be stauros (tree).

Ernest Martin

“Since we are told by the apostle John (who was an eyewitness to the crucifixion) that all three were crucified on ONE stauros (i.e. a single tree), it is easy to see how the Roman soldiers broke the legs of the robber in the Messiah’s right side (who had his back to the Messiah and was located on the northeast side of him) and then they broke the legs of the robber on the Messiah’s left side (who also had his back to the Messiah but was located on the southeast side of him). So, proceeding from the northeast side of the tree of crucifixion, the soldiers killed the first robber, went to the southeast side and killed the second robber, but they then came to the Messiah who was facing (let us say) westward towards his Father’s Temple. When they reached Yeshua they found him dead already. (Secrets of Golgotha, pp. 176-177).”

Tree of Life

The verses that speak of Messiah being crucified on a tree use the word ξύλον xulon for tree.  This is the same word used for tree of life in the New Testament.

Rev 22:2  In the midst of its street and of the river, from here and from there, was a tree of life producing twelve fruits: according to one month each yielding its fruit. And the leaves of the tree were for healing of the nations.

Rev 22:14  Blessed are the ones doing His commands, that their authority will be over the Tree of Life, and by the gates they may enter into the city.

The Menorah is a symbol of the Tree of Life

The Menorah/lampstand/candlestick=Light

Exo 35:14  The candlestick also for the light, and his furniture, and his lamps, with the oil for the light,

2Co 4:3  But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
2Co 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
2Co 4:5  For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

The Bible as a Menorah

http://www.biblewheel.com/Topics/Menorah.asp

The Hebrew letters running down the center column represent the number of books on the corresponding branches. The letters are:

Tav: 22nd letter
Heh: 5th letter
Lamed: 12th letter
Heh: 5th letter

These letters spell the word tehillah which means praise.  This will be discussed in more detail below in the section on all that has breathe praising Yah.

Exo 25:33  three almond like calyxes on the one branch with knob and blossom; and three almond like calyxes on the one branch with knob and blossom, so for the six branches, those going out from the lampstand.


3×6+4=22…corresponding to the 22 Hebrew letters.

Each side branch has three sets of three items – three bowls, each with a “knop” and a “flower.” The central branch has four sets of the same three items. Thus, the numerical arrangement of these decorations follow a symmetric pattern on the seven branches:

9 + 9 + 9 + 12 + 9 + 9 + 9

The number of these “decorations” sums to 66, the number of books in the Bible. Furthermore, the sum subdivides into the sum of the first four (9 + 9 + 9 + 9 + 12 = 39) and the last three (9 + 9 + 9 = 27) to give the number of books in the Old and New Testaments. Putting it all together, we see that the Bible and the Menorah have a large set of structural numbers in common:

  • 7 Branches [Canonical Divisions] symmetrically displayed
  • 3 Branches [Canonical Divisions] are paired, with one set apart.
  • 22 Bowls [Hebrew Letters]
  • 66 Decorations [Books] that subdivide into groups of 39 and 27

The structure of the Menorah also integrates with axis of the Wheel, with the Tav on the central pillar referring back, yet again, to the Crucifixion. Taking just the distinct letters from the central column yields the Tav KeyWord (Talah, to hang). God used this word to describe the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ when He gave this command in Deuteronomy 21:22

Deu 21:22  And if a man has committed a sin worthy of death, and he is put to death, and you hang him on a tree,
Deu 21:23  his body shall not remain all night on the tree; but burying you shall bury him the same day. For he that is hanged is a reproach to God. And you shall not defile your land which Jehovah your God is giving to you as an inheritance.

The divine integration is astounding. The Number 22 – the Number that unites the entire body of Scripture – is also the value of the fundamental Hebrew word Yachad (Yachad, Unite) used in Psalm 86, Yet there is more, the phrase “unite my heart” is numerically equivalent for the Hebrew

word for the Wheel, Gilgal. We have a pair of identities:

Unite My Heart!picYached Levavi = 66 =  galgal (Galgal, Wheel)

The triliteral root common to the two words rolled and Gilgal is galal () which expresses the idea of something round, circular, or rolling. It is the root of the word Galilee, the region of the Lord’s earthly ministry, so called because it consisted of a circuit (galeel ) of cities on the furthest outreaches of the Israeli kingdom. This root also gives rise to megillah () denoting a scroll, or roll of a book. The prophet Zechariah used this word when he wrote, “Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll ().” Likewise, it is used in Psalm 40, the prophetic Psalm of the Lord’s first advent, where we read: “Then said I, Lo, I come: in the volume () of the book it is written of me, I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart.”

All of these ideas come together in the meaning of the root pic (Galah, S# H1540) which is various translated as uncovered, discovered, opened, or revealed. It is used in Isaiah 53.1 “Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?” This is the Hebrew root – the root of the word Revelation – that governs the overall structure of Scripture!

The name of the place where the Lord was crucified is the Aramaic3 Gulgoltha ()  which became Golgotha () in Greek. It arose from galal through the Hebrew word for a skullgulgoluth (), so called because of its round form.

The name of the place where the Lord was crucified, therefore, differs from the Hebrew word denoting a wheel, galgal (), by the addition of two letters, the Aleph () and the Tav (). These are the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet that govern the overall structure of God’s Wheel. They correspond to the Greek Alpha and Omega, by which the Lord God identified himself, saying, “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending, saith the Lord, which is, and which was, and which is to come, the Almighty.”

This intimate relation between the Wheel, the letters Aleph and Tav, and Golgotha is but a glimpse of the infinite depth of God’s perfect wisdom. How mighty are his works! He designed each letter of the Hebrew alphabet to be kind of hieroglyph with a complex set of symbolic meanings that marvelously mix and merge to form the living words of the Hebrew language. By studying each letter’s name, grammatical function, numerical weight and relation to other letters, we come to understand its essential meaning and how it governs the themes of its corresponding Spoke. The thoroughly Jewish understanding of these letters can be found at Rabbi Yitzchak Ginsburgh’s site

These two letters, Aleph and Tav, combine to form the word , Eth, which in a mundane sense merely serves to indicate the direct object in the accusative case. But both scholars and mystics have noted that there is much more to be found in this simple word. The ever scholarly Ernst Klein, in his Etymological Dictionary of the Hebrew Language, noted that was originally “a noun in the sense of ‘being, essence, existence,’” while the esoteric author of the Zohar elaborated on this, stating that signifies essence of a thing, from beginning to end, first and last, and noted its use in Genesis 1.1 where it appears at the center of first seven words of the Bible:

With this understanding of Eth, we discover that the true essence of the Wheel, Eth Galgal, , is an anagram of , Golgotha, where the only change is that the First has become Last!6

Golgotha remains fixed as the inescapable central point about which God’s revelation eternally revolves. It is the unmovable axis of the Wheel. From Aleph to Tav, from beginning to end, from Genesis to Revelation, this is the message encoded in the supernatural structure of the Bible.

Behold the wisdom of God! The very word denoting the intrinsic geometric structure of God’s Word, Galgal, points directly and inevitably to its central event at Golgotha, the crucifixion of the Lord Jesus Christ, where the reproach of our sin was forever rolled away. Glory to God in the highest!

The Scriptures connect the heavens to a scroll
Rev 6:14  And the heaven departed like a scroll being rolled up. And every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
Isa 34:4  And all the host of the heavens shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together like a scroll. Then all their host shall droop, as a leaf drooping from the vine, and as the drooping from a fig tree.
66 words in these two verses…66 books in the Scriptures

http://www.biblewheel.com/wheel/intro.asp

The 66 books of the Bible are spiraled into 3 cycles, encompassed by the 22 Hebrew letters, which then beautifully manifests the 7  divisions of the Biblical Canon

The Bible Wheel is a circular presentation of the Bible that I discovered by rolling up the traditional list of the sixty-six books like a scroll on a spindle wheel of twenty-two spokes, corresponding to the twenty-two letters of the Hebrew alphabet. The order of the Hebrew alphabet is established in the alphabetically structured passages of the Old Testament, most notably Psalm 119 that praises God’s Word from Aleph to Tav, from beginning to end. This exemplifies how everything in the Bible Wheel is derived from Scripture and Scripture alone.

This division of the Scriptures into portions of 7 can is portrayed in the Menorah.

Primordial Language – Confirmation of the Divine Creator: Anita Meyer

http://www.biblewheel.com/forum/showthread.php?p=20657

“What I had discovered was that the Hebrew letters that were given to Moses on Mount Sinai from G-d (documented in the Bible as being directly inscribed by the Finger of G-d onto the Ten Commandments) are created from natures law. I had discovered that there are mathematical units of growth found in all of nature (such as Pi 3.14, Phi, Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Mean Spiral) that creates “one” prototype form that produces all of the 22 Hebrew letters.

To get a better idea of what I am talking about, firstly let me explain more about the mathematical numbers that appear in all of the natural world. We see these mathematical pattern in things like crystals, plants, animals, humans, and all living things. We can even see this mathematical pattern in the life cycle of an atom and its particles (which spiral). For instance we have units of growth that appear in nature such as the Fibonacci sequence that goes like this: 0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89,144,… (add the last two numbers together to get the next number 233. We also have the Golden Section numbers which are 0.61803 and 1.61803. The Golden String is 1011010110110101101… A sequence of 0’s and 1’s that is closely related to the Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Section. We also have Pi (3.14) and Phi which is also closely related. Now Pi and Phi works around the Fibonacci sequence and the Golden Mean Spiral. These units of measure are different mathematical units of growth, but they are in cahoots and conspire with each other. They are in a state of relationship and association with each other. One can see these sequences in nature that instructs all living things when deciding how many units to grow next such as in a trees branches and a plants leaves. This series (of adding some quantity) can be seen everywhere in nature. This series is what has come to be called by several names, the numbers of the Fibonacci sequence also (regarded in conjunction with Phi/Pi), increase at a rate equal to oscillating around the Golden Mean Spiral.

In trying to understand our world and everything that happens within and below we must go to the biggest most foundational source which is our Universe. This same unit of growth pattern can be seen in the spiral arms of our Universe.”

the Fibonacci pattern

The Fibonacci numbers are Nature’s numbering system. They appear everywhere in Nature, from the leaf arrangement in plants, to the pattern of the florets of a flower, the bracts of a pinecone, or the scales of a pineapple. The Fibonacci numbers are therefore applicable to the growth of every living thing, including a single cell, a grain of wheat, a hive of bees, and even all of mankind.

The golden ratio is often denoted by the Greek letter phi (Φ or φ).
The figure of a golden section illustrates the geometric relationship that defines this constant. The golden ratio is an irrational mathematical constant, approximately 1.6180339887.

Adolf Zeising, whose main interests were mathematics and philosophy, found the golden ratio expressed in the arrangement of branches along the stems of plants and of veins in leaves. He extended his research to the skeletons of animals and the branchings of their veins and nerves, to the proportions of chemical compounds and the geometry of crystals, even to the use of proportion in artistic endeavors. In these phenomena he saw the golden ratio operating as a universal law.  Zeising wrote in 1854:

The Golden Ratio is a universal law in which is contained the ground-principle of all formative striving for beauty and completeness in the realms of both nature and art, and which permeates, as a paramount spiritual ideal, all structures, forms and proportions, whether cosmic or individual, organic or inorganic, acoustic or optical; which finds its fullest realization, however, in the human form.

Exo 31:18  And when He finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave to Moses the two tablets of the testimony, tablets of stone, written by the finger of God.

The Finger also follows the Fibonacci pattern

And to further hammer (raqiya) home the point, the foot is also in the Fibonacci pattern.

Why is this significant?  As seen above, the throne of God (Heaven) and His footstool (earth) are connected by the Temple as seen in Ezekiel 43:7.  The Temple was designed as a perfect representation of the human body, as well as a perfect picture of the Messiah.

Tony Badillo has done an excellent study on the Temple and the human body connection.  I highly recommend reading his work.

Let all that Has breath praise Him

Psa 150:6  Let everything that breathes* praise Yah. HalleluYah!

*The word translated here as breath is ‘neshama’

This is the breath of life that animates biological creatures is His neshama as seen in Genesis 2:7; 7:22; Psalm 104:30.  The purpose of these creatures that have His neshama is to praise Him.  The word for praise in this verse is ‘tehalal’ which means to ‘shine’.

Jeff Benner Hebrew Dictionary pg 8-9

Here we see that the purpose of all life (biology) is to look to their Creator.  This is seen in the Hebrew word ‘hallal’.   The concept of this word in English is seen in the word ‘shine.’

Num 6:25  Jehovah cause His face to shine (Heb. ‘or’/light*) on you, and be gracious to you;

*As seen above, light is linked with life through Messiah Jesus (John 1:4)
Num 6:26  Jehovah lift up His face to you, and give you peace.
Num 6:27  So they shall put My name
(shem- the root of neshama/breath of life) on the sons of Israel, and I Myself will bless them.

Who is the ‘face/paniym’ of God?

Jesus is the Presence of God
KJV
Psa 42:5  Why art thou cast down, O my soul? and why art thou disquieted in me? hope thou in God: for I shall yet praise him for the help of his countenance (yeshuat panayv/Yeshua of His Face).

Psa 42:5 (42:6) מה־תשׁתוחחי נפשׁי ותהמי עלי הוחילי לאלהים כי־עוד אודנו ישׁועות פניו׃

Heb 1:3  who being the shining splendor of His glory, and the express image of His essence, and upholding all things by the Word of His power, having made purification of our sins through Himself, He sat down on the right of the Majesty on high,

The Glory of God is seen in the face of Messiah Jesus

2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Rev 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they might shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it, even its lamp is the Lamb.

This is the purpose of biology (study of life).  To reveal His Glory

Hab 2:14  For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of Jehovah, as the waters cover the sea.

All that has breath (neshama) is to praise Him.  This is pictured by a man lifting up his arms and eyes to the North Star (the constellation Cepheus, which represents the enthroned King is directly above the north star) which represents seeking the Face of God.  This word halal means to shine.  God then shines His Face down upon us through Messiah Jesus.  Man looking to His Creator & Redeemer.  The Creator looking down to His creation….this is meaning of being the little guy in His Eye.

  2. here is my weekly thought…

    Are their any Phineas’s in the house? Something to really think about…

    This weeks Torah portion is on Phineas in Number 25 and in order to understand it we have to back up to last weeks portion concerning Balaam and King Balak. Remember Balak had Balaam come to curse Israel but all Balaam could do was speak blessings over Israel and those blessings are some of the most powerful blessings still prayed over Israel to this day. But what Balaam told Balak what to do if he wanted to destroy Israel was the same plan the devil uses to this day on Yahuwah’s covenant children.

    Balaam told Balak that you have to get the Israelite’s God to curse His children by inviting them to your feast, your festivals, and disobey Yahuwah commandments He gave to Moses. Then while they are at your festivals cause your women to seduce their men, and try to inner marry with them and cause them to enter into idolatry. If you remember, this was one of the main sins of King Solomon who married pagan women, and had over 1000 wives and entered into idolatry.

    To this day, the devil has used the same scheme on God’s people. Sure enough, we know the rest of the story, Balak took Balaam’s advise and the whole plan was to stop the Israelites from following the customs and teachings that Moses had introduced to the Israelites from Yahuwah, and to follow after the pagan traditions and celebrations of men and to enter into idolatry. Israel did this and Father began to curse Israel for their sin and a plague broke out.

    A leader named Zimri from the tribe of Simeon and a beautiful Midianite woman named Cozbi came before Moses and the tent of meeting and was about to consummate their marriage right in front of the elders, as if to say, “we don’t have to listen to you we can do what ever we want to do and you can’t stop us.” That is when Phineas, a priest, under the power of the Holy Spirit took up a spear and drove it through both Zimri and Cozbi killing them both in their tent while they were in the act. Because of Phineas’s righteous act the plague stopped but not before killing 24,000 rebellious Israelites as punishment for their idolatry and Phineas was rewarded with and eternal covenant of peace from Yahuwah for he and all his descendants.

    Do you see the parallel? The enemy today is in our camp and has been for over 1700 years since the beginning of the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) and has deceived many believers into following after pagan traditions we believe are alright to Christianize by the RCC and Yahuwah’s bride has turned from the eternal feast of Yahuwah and with great cost. Father is forced to curse the blessings of His children of those who reject the teachings and customs He gave Moses and the Israelites and who practice idolatry either knowingly or unknowingly. For Christmas, Easter, and Sun-day as Sabbath are all lies, having a form of Godliness but still, there is no truth in them and Yahusha said, “Father is looking for a people who would worship Him in both spirit and truth.” (John 4:23-24)

    The Roman Catholic Church is guilty of butchering and murdering millions of true believers during the dark ages for over 1000 years for rejecting their pagan Christianized traditions, and they died as martyrs rather than stop keeping 7th day Sabbath, and Passover, and the feast days commanded in Lev 23. The Jews were guilty of doing the same thing, murdering the true prophets of God, and Yahshua said to them in Matt 23:33 “You snakes! You brood of vipers! How will you escape being condemned to hell? And Goes on to tell them in John 5:45 Do not think that I shall accuse you to the Father; there is one who accuses you–Moses, in whom you trust.

    The church has been in the times that Amos 8 prophesied as a famine of hearing (and obeying, Shama) the word of God for over 1500 years. How soon we have forgotten the precious blood of these saints and their undying attitude and love towards Yahuwah and His Torah. Each of us has turned to our own way and are guilty of rejecting Yahuwah’s Torah. And we have the audacity to believe that we will be raptured before the great tribulation starts and not be tested by fire as these precious saints were, who were also washed in the blood of our savior, I might add. I got to ask you, “just how many lies can a people believe”??!!

    As we know, Father does not do anything without purpose and we are living in the last days and Yahuwah’s spirit is leading a remnant of His children back to keeping His Torah and preparing them once again to enter the promise land and receive divine protection by their obedience to come out of Babylon and her abominations. How beautiful are the feet of them that bring this good news, who listen to the voice of Yahuwah in these last days.

    I tell you brethren we are at the very gates of Yahuwah’s judgment being poured out on our nation for the sins of the church in our land and the question is, “are their any Phineas’s in the house”?

    something to think about…
