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. This image has been corrupted, as in the corruption of the doctrine related to the 4 elements in the Mystery religions but the Truth is at the foundation.
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?”
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.
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 Sacred 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.
