The magnetosphere protects the earth against meteors and other debris.  It is the Earth’s “shield“.  The Hebrew word for shield or defense is מגן ‘magen’ which literally pictures a wall of protection.  Jesus is our Shield.

Gen 15:1  After these things the word of the LORD came unto Abram in a vision, saying, Fear not, Abram: I am thy shield {מגן ‘magen’}, and thy exceeding great reward.
Deu 33:29  Blessed are you, O Israel! Who is like you? A people saved by Jehovah, the Shield {מגן ‘magen’} of your help, and He who is the Sword of your excellency! And your enemies shall be found liars before you, and you shall tread on their high places.
Psa 3:3  But You, O Jehovah, are a shield {מגן ‘magen’} around me; my glory, and He who lifts up my head.

Psa 18:2  The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler {מגן ‘magen’}, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

Psa 18:30  As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler {מגן ‘magen’} to all those that trust in him.

Psa 7:10  My defence {מגן ‘magen’} is of God, which saveth the upright in heart.

Psa 89:18  For the LORD is our defence {מגן ‘magen’}; and the Holy One of Israel is our king.

Psa 18:35  You have also given me the shield {מגן ‘magen’} of Your salvation; and Your right hand holds me up; and Your condescension has made me great.

Psa 28:7  Jehovah is my strength and my shield {מגן ‘magen’}; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; yea, my heart greatly rejoices; and I will thank Him with my song.
Psa 59:11  Do not kill them, lest my people forget; scatter them by Your power and bring them down, O Jehovah our shield {מגן ‘magen’}.

He is our shield, our hiding place.

Psa_119:114  Thou art my hiding place {סתר ‘seter’} and my shield {מגן ‘magen’}: I hope in thy word.

This hiding place imagery connects to the concept of abiding in His bosom as an innocent youth.  Further connecting this hiding place – under the shadow of His wings imagery is Psalm 91.

Psa 91:1  He that dwelleth in the secret place {סתר ‘seter’} of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
Psa 91:2  I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.
Psa 91:3  Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.
Psa 91:4  He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

Psa_32:7  Thou art my hiding place {סתר ‘seter’}; thou shalt preserve me from trouble; thou shalt compass me about with songs of deliverance. Selah.

Interestingly, the other word in Hebrew which displays the concept of a hiding place is חב ‘chav’ which also means the bosom.  This hiding place – bosom connection is depicted in Messiah on the cross, which is displayed in the shadow picture of the magnetosphere.

There are a number of Hebrew words which have the meaning of love, all of which point back in one form or another to the bosom.  This connection between the bosom and love points to Messiah Jesus, the manifestation of God’s love in giving His only begotten Son for the salvation of mankind (John 3:16).  Scripture declares that Messiah came from the bosom of the Father (John 1:18) who gathers (John 12:32) and then carries mankind (the dead) to His bosom (life).

Isa 40:10  Behold, the Lord Jehovah will come with strength, and His arm rules for Him. Behold, His reward is with Him, and His wage before Him.
Isa 40:11  He shall feed His flock like a shepherd; He shall gather lambs with His arm; and carry them in His bosom; those with young He will lead;

The Good Shepherd accomplished this through giving His life on the cross when He took the sins of mankind into His bosom (Psalm 89:50-51).

The most common Hebrew word used for love is אהב ‘ahav’ which literally means a gift and the expressions and actions of one towards the family.   The pictograph meaning displays the gift of the Father to mankind of His only begotten Son. The first and last letters spell out the word for Father (אב ‘ab’) and the middle letter is a picture of a man with outstretched arms. The Love of the Father is revealed through the Messiah on the tree, gathering all mankind back to their Creator.

chav hiding

The magnetosphere shield also protects the earth from the solar winds caused by the sun.  It is interesting to note that Scripture speaks of God as both a shield and the sun.

Psa 84:11  For Jehovah God is a sun and shield {מגן ‘magen’}; Jehovah will give grace and glory; He will withhold nothing good from those who walk in integrity.

The energy (light) of the sun brings forth life to the earth, but without the magnetosphere shield all life would be destroyed by this same energy.

The Word of God is Light (Proverbs 6:23; Psalm 119:105) which brings life to those who have Jesus (the Shield) but death to those who are not covered by His garments of salvation (Romans 7:10-13; 2 Corinthians 3:7).

Eze 20:11  And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them.
Eze 20:12  Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.
Eze 20:13  But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said, I would pour out my fury {חמה ‘chema’} upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.

חמה ‘chema’ literally means the heat of the sun.

chema sun

All have sinned and rebelled against His Word, as a result all deserve His wrath (Romans 3:23; 5:12; John 3:36).  Messiah Jesus took this punishment upon Himself on the cross (1 Corinthians 15:3; Galatians 1:4; Hebrews 1:3), shielding those who trust in Him as the magnetosphere shields the earth.

Eze 20:33  As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury {חמה ‘chema’} poured out, will I rule over you:
Eze 20:34  And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.

1Th 5:8  But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
1Th 5:9  For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
1Th 1:10  And to wait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.

Psa 21:7  For the king trusteth in the LORD, and through the mercy of the most High he shall not be moved.
Psa 21:8  Thine hand shall find out all thine enemies: thy right hand shall find out those that hate thee.
Psa 21:9  Thou shalt make them as a fiery oven in the time of thine anger: the LORD shall swallow them up in his wrath, and the fire shall devour them.

Heb 10:27  But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
Heb 12:28  Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear:
Heb 12:29  For our God is a consuming fire.

Zep 3:8  Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the LORD, until the day that I rise up to the prey: for my determination is to gather the nations, that I may assemble the kingdoms, to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce {חרן  ‘charon’ – literally the burning heat of the sun} anger: for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.

2Th 1:7  And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2Th 1:8  In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
2Th 1:9  Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

magnetosphere 2
“The Sun and its atmosphere consist of several zones, or layers, from the inner core to the outer corona. Beyond the corona is the solar wind, which is an outward expansion of coronal plasma that extends well beyond the orbit of Pluto.

This entire region of space influenced by the Sun is called the heliosphere. Controlled by the Earth’s magnetic field, the magnetosphere acts as a shield protecting the planet from solar wind.”  {Heliophysics and Space Weather}

The Hebrew word for the sun is שמש ‘shemesh’ which depicts the destructive force of these winds.

sun destruction

The root of שמש ‘shemesh’ is שם ‘shem’ which means breath, but also desolation as in a wind that brings ruin to a land.

shem desolation

Note that the word for guilt offering (אשם ‘asham’) comes from this root word שם ‘shem’ as it is His sacrifice that saves us from guilt and destruction. This is especially interesting in light of the earth’s magnetosphere which displays the crucifixion of Messiah in parable form.

Isa 53:10  But Jehovah pleased to crush Him, to make Him sick, so that If He should put His soul as a guilt offering (אשם ‘asham’), He shall see His seed; He shall prolong His days; and the will of Jehovah shall prosper in His hand.

אשם ‘asham’ comes from the root word שם ‘shem’ which means the character of a person as in their breath or “aroma”.

Sin brings forth the aroma of death while His Word brings forth the aroma of life.  One of the purposes of His Word is to convict mankind (Romans 3:19; James 2:10) and reveal to them their stench (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 7:18, 24) that they may turn to Him for forgiveness through the Word made flesh, Jesus (Ephesians 2:1-2; Romans 7:25).

Scriptures declares that His Name or Character is His Word (Revelation 19:13; Matthew 12:21=Isaiah 42:4).  Those who are born again in His Word (James 1:18, 21) bear forth the sweet fragrance of this Word (2 Corinthians 2:14-16).  To those who are likewise saved through this Word, the sweet fragrance of His Word comes forth.  To those who are lost, the smell of death is revealed as the Word also reveals our guilt.  The only way to bring forth the sweet fragrance of His Word is through the love of God, revealed in Messiah Jesus.

Eph 5:2  and walk in love, even as Christ also loved us and gave Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for an odor of a sweet smell.

Love is the character/name of God (1 John 4:8).  The Hebrew word for love is אהב ‘ahav’ which is consists of the letters אב .  The middle letter ה ‘heh’ has the meaning of revelation.  The Father revealed.  In ancient Hebrew, the letter ה ‘heh’ was depicted as a man with outstretched arms, like unto Messiah on the cross. How was the love of the Father revealed?  Through the giving of His only begotten Son as an atonement for the sins of mankind (John 3:16).

Let us take up our crosses (Mark 8:34-37; Luke 14:26-33; Mark 10:21) and die to ourselves daily (1 Corinthians 15:31), presenting our lives as living sacrifices (Romans 12:1-2; 6:6-18) which are a sweet fragrance to the Most High.  Forgiving, loving, walking in the Character/Name of God.

1Jn 2:1  My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous:
1Jn 2:2  And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
1Jn 2:3  And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments.
1Jn 2:4  He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
1Jn 2:5  But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him.
1Jn 2:6  He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.

Col 3:12  Therefore, as elect ones of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassions, kindness, humility, meekness, long-suffering,
Col 3:13  bearing with one another and forgiving yourselves, if anyone has a complaint against any; even as Christ forgave you, so also you should forgive.
Col 3:14  And above all these, love, which is the bond of perfectness.
Col 3:15  And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which you also were called in one body, and be thankful.
Col 3:16  Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly, in all wisdom teaching and exhorting yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.
Col 3:17  And everything, whatever you do in word or in work, do all things in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father through Him.

This love covers or protects from a multitude of sin.

1Pe 4:8  And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.


As mentioned before, the magnetosphere protects the earth against meteors and other debris.  It is said that meteors which hit the earth bring forth a sulfur smell which is associated with God’s wrath.

Rev 14:10  The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Rev 19:20  And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Rev 20:10  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

Rev 21:8  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.


Scientists have found that the magnetic field of the earth makes a chorus which sounds much like a whale song.  The Hebrew word for whale is תנין ‘taniyn’ from the root תן ‘tan’ which means a gift.  God so loved that world that He gave (תן ‘tan’) His only Son as a sacrifice for the sins of mankind (John 3:15-18).  תנין ‘taniyn’ is also the word for a dragon (Ezekiel 29:3; 32:2) or serpent (Exodus 7:9-10) in Hebrew.  Messiah comes to destroy this beast (Isaiah 27:1; Psalm 74:12-15; 91:13-16) through the cross where He became a serpent on the tree (John 3:14; Numbers 21:7-9; Colossians 2:15).

Further connecting תנין ‘taniyn’ (serpent on tree) and תן ‘tan’ (gift of salvation) is the story of Jonah.  Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly which was a picture of Messiah’s death and resurrection (Matthew 12:40).

magnetosphere 5

“Earth’s magnetosphere assumes a spider-like shape as it brushes against the solar wind, and the zodiac through which the Earth and planets travel through can be likened to a spiders web -hence Earth the cosmic spider. “

magnetosphere spider

Further connecting the magnetic field of the earth to the cross (protection from death) is its shape which assumes the form of a spider.  The Hebrew word for spider is עכביש ‘akbiysh’ which comes from the root עך which means “at the heel”.  The crucifixion was the “piercing of the heel” of the Promised Seed (Genesis 3:15).

The 3 letter root of עכביש ‘akbiysh’ is כבש ‘kavash’ which means to subdue or imprison as in a spider subduing its prey which has been ‘imprisoned’ in its web.


כבש ‘kavash’ also means a footstool which also has the meaning of subduing as placing one’s foot on the land in the sense of subduing it.  In Hebrew, הדם ‘ha`dom’ also means the footstool in the sense of crushing or breaking in pieces the enemy.  הדם ‘ha`dom’ comes from the root דם ‘dam’ which means blood, as in the blood shed by the enemy in order to conquer them in war.  It is through the shed blood of the Lamb (Revelation 12:11), the piercing of His heel, that the enemy was conquered and subdued becoming His footstool.

There are two words in the New Testament translated as lamb, ἀμνος ‘amnos’ & ἀρνιον ‘arnion.’  The first word, ἀμνόςis used four times, all four times speaking of the Lamb that would be slayed for the salvation of the world (John 1:29, 36; Acts 8:32-35; 1 Peter 1:17-25).

The second word for lamb in the New Testament is ἀρνίον ‘arnion.’  This word is used 30 times in Scripture, all but one time in the book of Revelation.  This usage of this word is referring to the victorious Lamb who has lifted up His people.  ἀμνός ‘amnos’ speaking of His death & ἀρνίον ‘arnion’ speaking of His resurrection & victory.  It is interesting to note that two of the numerous Hebrew words for lamb is כבש ‘keves’ and כשב ‘kesev’ which displays this concept.  כשב ‘kesev’ is speaking of a docile lamb while  כבש ‘keves’ means to dominate.

Isaac Mozeson describes this submission, conquering connection in the Hebrew words for lamb/sheep.

“The giving of animals to the altar is far more than sacrificing one’s desired wealth.  A penitent wishes to conqure his character flaws, to grow from willful, animalistic sinner to obedient lamb…only in the language of the Bible is the gentle lamb and the theme of conquest linked by an identical root.”  {The Origin of Speeches: Intelligent Design in Language Pg 191-192}

Messiah is the Lamb that conquers all His enemies.

Rev 17:14  These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and the ones with Him are the called and elect and faithful ones.

This victory came through His work on the cross

Col 2:15  having stripped the rulers and the authorities, He made a show of them in public, triumphing over them in it.

Isaac Mozeson traces the English word ‘victory’ back to the Hebrew word כבוש ‘kavosh’ which means to subdue, literally putting under one’s foot.

1Co 15:25  For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet.
1Co 15:26  The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.
1Co 15:27  For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him.
1Co 15:28  And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

1Ch_29:11  Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all.



The magnetic field of the earth is also responsible for the auroras which occur at the northern and southern most extremities of the earth.  The auroras are lights (the word itself traces back to the Hebrew word אור ‘or’) which also link to the crucifixion which brought forth the 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 σταυρός ‘stauros’ (tree).

“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 – Ernest Martin pg 176-177).


The seven colors of the color spectrum seen in the auroras point to the 7 branched Menorah.

The Lamb in the midst of the throne (rainbow – Revelation 4:3) has seven eyes (Revelation 4:5) representing the 7 Spirits of God (Revelation 5:6).  This corresponds to the Menorah (light) and the Hebrew word for lamb טלה ‘taleh’ which also means colors (Ezekiel 16:16).

aurora rainbow



Animals use the earth’s magnetic field to migrate during the winter months.  Winter pictures death.  These migratory animals “escape” death through using the magnetic field of the earth.  The earth’s magnetic field is a “shield” of protection for the earth, a picture of Messiah on the cross.  Man escapes death by the crucifixion of Messiah where they begin their long “migration” to the Kingdom and life eternal.

To migrate is to move from one place to another.  The word migrate traces back to the Hebrew word גר ‘ger’ which means one who travels, a stranger or sojourner.  This is the Biblical description of believers.

Heb_11:13  These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.

The Greek word here for pilgrim is παρεπίδημος ‘parepidēmos’ which means a stranger and sojourner.  The word for stranger is ξένος ‘xenos’ which has the same meaning.  ξένος ‘xenos’ is used to translate the Hebrew word גר ‘ger’ while παρεπίδημος ‘parepidēmos’ is used to translate the Hebrew word תּשׁב  ‘toshav’ which both have identical meanings.

Gen 23:4  I am a stranger {גר ‘ger’} and a sojourner {תּשׁב  ‘toshav’} with you: give me a possession of a buryingplace with you, that I may bury my dead out of my sight.

Psa 39:12  Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger {גר ‘ger’} with thee, and a sojourner {תּשׁב  ‘toshav’}, as all my fathers were.

We are strangers and sojourners awaiting our heavenly home of which we have been given citizenship through Messiah Jesus and His work on the cross.

Eph 2:16  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:17  And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
Eph 2:18  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 2:19  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

The migration of animals from north to south and back again each year corresponds with the movement of the sun.

The word for ‘equinox’ in Hebrew is תקופה ‘tequphah.’  It literally means the mark/cross of the sun.  At the Spring תקופה ‘tequfah’ the sun is at 23 degrees in the Tropic of Cancer.  At the Autumn תקופה ‘tequfah’ the sun is at 23 degrees in the Tropic of Capricorn.  23 +23 = 46.  46 is the number of chromosomes in the human body that stores our DNA.  The chromosome is also in the shape of a cross/tav.

As mentioned before, the word for ‘equinox‘ in Hebrew is תקופה ‘tequfah’ which has the following pictograph meaning.  The cross (ת) reveals (ה) the sun on the horizon (קוף).  The letter ק ‘qof’ spelled קוף in Hebrew is pictographically displayed as the sun rising on the horizon.  So then the word תקופה ‘tequfah’ has embedded within itself the point of the equinox.  It is at the cross of the horizon which is exactly East.  As the sun moves through its course in the sky it will rise directly East at the spring and fall equinoxes, making a cross in the sky each year.

The Hebrew word for time further displays this “cross” imagery as the Hebrew word for time which is עת ‘et.’ Pictographically עת ‘et’ means to see ע the cross ת.

The movement of the sun throughout the year is a ‘macrocosm’ of the daily movement of the sun.  This daily and yearly movement of the sun portrays the “Word of the Cross” (1 Corinthians 1:18).  The morning rising of the sun which corresponds with Spring portrays the birth and re-birth of the Messiah from the dead.  The mid-day sun which corresponds with Summer portrays the lifting up of the Messiah on the cross (John 3:14; 12:32) and later His exaltation (Philippians 2:7-9).  The setting of the sun corresponds with Autumn in which the light of the world (John 9:4-5; 11:9) fades away into darkness which is displayed by nighttime and Winter portraying the Savior’s death.

This movement of the sun through the skies during the course of the year also makes a figure eight, called the ‘analemma.’

The number 8 points to the Sun of Righteousness

Jesus in Greek = 888


888 is also equivalent to the Hebrew phrases ישועת אלהינו ‘yeshot elohaynu’ (Salvation of our God) and השמים מספרים כבוד אל ‘hashamayim misparim kavod El’ (The heavens declare the Glory of God).

The phrase ‘the heavens declare the Glory of God’ is found in Psalm 19:1 which describes the circuit (תקופה ‘tequfah’) of the sun.

Sun – 8 – Connection

The word for 8 in Hebrew is:


The root of 8 comes from שם ‘shem’ (name/character) which is the same root as sun {שמש ‘shemesh’}.

Further connecting the sun & the number eight is the word oil.  The Holy Spirit is likened to oil (1 Samuel 16:13; Zechariah 4:2-3; Revelation 4:5).  The sun moves upon the spirit/wind (Ecclesiastes 1:5-6).  The word for oil is שמן ‘shemen’ which comes from the same root as שמון ‘shemon’ (eight).

רח is the root of the word רוח ‘ruach’ which means  Spirit.

The sun’s cycle makes an interesting form when it moves throughout the sky during the year.  This phenomenon is known as the ‘analemma.’  If you photographed the sun once a week at the same time of day for an entire year, you would have a photo of the analemma, the sun’s apparent path on the sky over the course of a year, which looks like a figure-eight.

The Sun is moving in a continual ‘figure eight’ path.

Aviv is the first month of the year in the Biblical Calendar (Exodus 12:2).  Aviv happens after the sun makes it’s full revolution/circuit (תקופה ‘tequfah’) which is seen in the analemma figure above.  Hence, the new year (aviv) starts when the figure eight is complete.

This analemma/figure eight movement is mentioned as it connects to the Van Allen radiation belts which also display the figure eight.  The Van Allen radiation belt is one of the two layers of “energetic charged particles” around the earth which are held in place by the magnetosphere.  James Van Allen discovered these belts so they were named in his honor.

van allen radiation belt 2

As mentioned before, the magnetosphere is a “shield”.  The Hebrew word for shield or defense is מגן ‘magen’ which literally pictures a wall of protection. The Hebrew letter ח ‘chet’ is a picture of a wall and has the numerical value of 8.
