This article  is connected to "A divine Prism" "Numbers prophecy and symbolism" and "Prophecies in names"

We have already discussed the meaning of the numbers, but there is more. In the first article I was pointing out the meaning of the basic numbers, here the lesser known. We know why we have intervals of seven, because every time there was a fulfillment seven was to show this fulfillment or complete. But why the intervals of 50?

Daniel Michaelson wrote:

"The number 50 has several important meanings in Judaism. Every fiftieth year is a Jubilee year; the Torah was given 50 days after the exodus from Egypt, and there are 50 gates of wisdom. At this point, a skeptical reader would exclaim that the whole system is nothing but a coincidence...."I an sure, " this skeptic would continue, "You would be able to find such words and system in any book. In his article, "Codes in the Torah, professor Michaelsen addresses in detail the mathematical probability of these Torah codes and concludes that "the probability of such a coincidence is about ONE IN THREE MILLION.

Computers have helped a lot in decoding this very interesting and intriguing code for example, in 1982 Dr. Eli Rips of the Institute of Mathematics at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem with others used computers to find meaningful words in the biblical text at equidistant intervals. As an example, the computer was asked to find all appearances of the word Israel in the first ten thousand letters of genesis, at equal intervals ranging from 100 - to 100. The computer demonstrated that the word Israel is spelled out only twice, at interval of 7 and 50, in genesis chapter one. The significance of this finding according to Michaelson is that:

"These are exactly the four verses that constitute the Kiddush which we recite over a cup of wine every Friday night to sanctify the Sabbath. This is astounding because seven and 50 are the only numbers related to Shabbat. Seven stands for both the Seventh day of creation and the seventh year of Shmita when the land rests. After seven shimita cycles the land rests also on the fiftieth year, the Jubilee year. Is this  merely coincidence? A simple calculation shows that the probability of the word Israel appearing once at a given interval in the above verses is about 1 in 100. The chance of two appearance at the interval of 7 and 50 either backwards of forwards is about 1 in  400.000. The name of Israel, found in code, at intervals which speak of resting the land on the seventh and fiftieth year! Why not an interval of 8 or 49?

The skeptic believe in  the power of chance.

From the Book "The Creator beyond time and space" By Mark Eastman.

The first 17 verse of the Gospel of Matthew are a logical unit, or section, which deals with a single principal subject: The genealogy of Jesus Christ. It contains 72 Greek vocabulary words in these initial 17 verses. The number of words which are nouns is exactly 56, or 7X8. The Greek word "the" occurs most frequently in the passage: exactly 56 times, or 7X8. Also, the number of different forms in which the article "the" occurs is exactly 7.

There are two main sections in the passage: verse 1-11 and 12-17. In the first main section, the number of Greek vocabulary words used is 49. or 7 x7. Why not 48 or 50?

Of these 49 words, the number of those beginning with a vowel is 28, or 7x4. The number of words beginning with a consonant is 21, or 7x3.

The total numbers of letters in these 49 words is 266, or 7x38. The number of vowels among these 266 letters is 140, or 7x20. The number of consonants is 126, or 7x18.

Of the 49 words, the number of words which occur more than once is 35, or 7x5. The number of words occurring only once is 14, or 7x2. The number of words which occur in only one form is exactly 42, or 7x6. the number of words appearing in more than one form is also 7.

The number of the 49 Greek vocabulary words which are nouns is 42, or 7x6. The number of words which are not nouns is 7. Of the nouns, 35 are proper names, or exactly 7x5. These 35 names are used 63 times, or 7x9. The number of male names is 28,or 7x4. These male names occur 56 times, or 7x8. the number which are not male names is 7. Three women are mentioned Tamar, Rahab and Ruth. The number of Greek letters in these three names is 14, 7x2.. The number of compound nouns is 7, The number of Greek letters in these 7 nouns is 49 or 7x7 Only one city is mentioned in this passage, Babylon, which in Greek contains exactly 7 letters. And on it goes


There are even more features in the numerical structure of the words themselves. As you may know, both Hebrew and Greek use the letters of the alphabet for numerical values. therefore, any specific words, in either Hebrew or Greek has a numeric value of its own by adding up the values of the letters in that particular word. The study of the numerical values of words is called gametria.

The 72 vocabulary words add up to a gametrical value of 42.364, or 7 x 6.052. If one Greek letter was changed, this would not happen. The 72 words appear in 90 forms, some appear in more than one form. The numeric value of the 90 forms is 54.075 or 7x7.725.

It becomes immediately obvious that hidden below the surface are aspects of design that cannot be accidental or just coincidence. Remember, the rabbis say that " coincidence" is not a kosher word. The Jewish rabbis have a belief that we will not understand the scriptures, completely, until the Messiah comes. But when he comes, he will not only interpret each of the passages for us, He will interpret the very words. He will even interpret the very letters themselves; in fact, He will even interpret the spaces between the letters.

Other implications.

There are words in the passage just described that occur nowhere else in the New testament. they occur 42 times 7x6 and have 126 letter 7x18. How was this organized?

Even if Matthew contrived this characteristic into his gospel, how could he have known that these specific words whose sole characteristic is that they are found nowhere else in the New Testament, were not going to be used by the other writers? Unless we assume the absurd hypothesis that he had an agreement with them, he must have had the rest of the New Testament before him when he wrote his book. The Gospel of Matthew, then, must have been written last.

It so happens, however, that the Gospel of Mark exhibits the same phenomenon. It can be demonstrated that it would have had to be written last. the same phenomenon is found in Luke, John, James, Peter, Jude and Paul. Each would have had to write after the other in order to contrive the vocabulary frequencies! We are indebted to the painstaking examinations and lifetime commitment of Dr. Ivan Panin for uncovering these amazing insights.

The epitaph on the cross of Jesus.

When Jesus was crucified, Pilate wrote the sign that was nailed to the cross. the particular wording he chose displeased the Jewish leadership and they asked him to change it. He refused. there are some interesting aspects to this incident that are not apparent in our English translations.

John 19:19-22

John 19

And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE KING OF THE JEWS.
This title then read many of the Jews: for the place where Jesus was crucified was nigh to the city: and it was written in Hebrew, and Greek, and Latin.
Then said the chief priests of the Jews to Pilate, Write not, The King of the Jews; but that he said, I am King of the Jews.
Pilate answered, What I have written I have written.

Pilate refused to revise the epitaph he had composed. This may have more significance than is apparent in our English translations. The Hebrew epitaph is shown below

Yeshua HaNazarei v Melech HaYehudim: Jessus the Nazarei and king of the Jews.

What we don't notice in the English translation is that the acrostic made up of the first letter of each word spells out Yahweh (YHWH). If Pilate had rewritten it in the manner they had requested him to, it would not have spelled out the name of God. Did Pilate realize this? Was it deliberate? Did he do it just to upset the Jewish leadership, which he realized delivered Him for envy? Or was he beginning to suspect that there was more going on here than he previously realized? When they requested a special guard for the tomb, he also responded with an enigmatic remark, "Make it as sure as you can." What did he mean by that?.

On my opinion there are three keys to be discovered or better understood.

1) The hidden meaning in proper names.

2) hidden meaning in key words (usually key words are repeated)

3 hidden meaning in numbers.

Names usually means "nature in the Bible, not always but in most of the cases and it is so evident. Every Hebrew proper name was given with a meaning whether of a person or a place, will reveal a state of consciousness, you will discover that as this state change in the story, the person's name will change. It seems like they can't keep the same name once their nature  has changed, this because their proper names all have a deeper meaning than just a name, this is true even for places' names..

Thomas Troward tell us in Bible mystery and Bible meaning:" The purpose of a name is to call up by a single word the complete idea of the thing named, with all those qualities and relations that make it what it is, instead of having to describe all this in detail every time we want to suggest the conception of it. The correct name of a thing thus conveys the idea of its whole nature. Accordingly, the correct name of God should, in some manner, be a concise statement of the divine nature.

Jehovah for example means "I am" I suggest you to read " the Great Jehovah" The correct understanding of this name means " I am alive" meaning the living God, His real nature is to live forever.

Usually I work in this way, when I wish to better understand things in the scriptures. Anytime I find a name in a context of a story I want to know what the name means Reading the Bible should be a treasure hunt, and name on Bible maps are really the map for the treasure. I have an example here. In my talk Jacob or Israel I said that the fight between Jacob and God was just a fight in prayer in fact Jacob won because he gained a blessing and his name was changed in that occasion, the place in which everything happened was Peniel that it means "the presence of God" or "the recognition of God or the "face of God"  In the book the hidden mystery of the Bible by Jack Ensign Addington pag. 25 regarding this it is written. "An interesting sidelight concern the pineal gland, sometimes called the Third eye. The Yogi approaches his meditation by directing his attention to a point in the center of the forehead just above and between the eyes where the "third eye" or mystic eye is said to be located, to him the center of light. It is interesting to note that this is the location of the gland that directs the body functions and is called the pineal gland. Webster describes the pineal gland as having the structure of an eye "with a more or less distinct retina and lens, and is then called the pineal eye....It was formerly supposed by some philosophers to be the seat of the soul.." I believe that the Eastern religions continue today to believe that the third eye is the seat of spiritual insight. Somewhere along the line, the spelling has been slightly altered since the Bible spells the word Peniel or Penuel,  but the similarity of meaning suggest that they are related. Peniel means recognition of God. meditation is for the purpose of recognizing God and the Prayer is the ultimate meditation is a real conversation between mankind and God.

Another interesting clue is when you associate numbers and name together. For example we know that 12 means the leadership of God in the church or better in his house, but if you analyze the names of the twelve tribes and the twelve disciples, if you investigate the meanings of their names you will see for yourself that they represent the different spiritual qualities  in man. I wrote in His house because according to Revelation of John there are 12 stars, 12 angels and the New Jerusalem will have 12 foundations. Consider this page under construction.
