Daily Tidbits 3/17 – Shadows of Messiah: St. Patrick’s Day

FULL VERSION

Patrick comes from the Latin name Patricius, which meant “nobleman”.   ‘Patricius’ traces back further to the Hebrew word פטר ‘pater’ which is also the source of the Greek word ‘pater’ meaning father.

The English word ‘father’ comes from this Greek word ‘pater.’ This word comes from the Hebrew word פטר ‘pater’ which has the meaning of something breaking forth, pictured by the birth of a child. The source of this word is פר ‘par’ which means fruit. The connection to the word אב ‘av’ (the Hebrew word for father) through the concepts of fruit and the source of a thing.

פטר ‘patar’ is also the word for first-born in Hebrew.  This is an interesting connection as St. Patrick’s day is celebrated during the time of year of Passover, the remembrance of the redemption of the first born of Israel and the death of the first born of Egypt.  This is a primary theme of this holiday.  A mixture of good and evil.  Truth and myth.

אב ‘av’ is the root of the word אביב ‘aviv‘ which means Spring.  St. Patrick’s day is set on March 17, which always occurs a few days before the Spring equinox.  The color associated with St. Patrick’s day is green which is also associated with Spring.  אביב ‘aviv’ literally means ‘green grain’:

aviv green grain
אב ‘av’ is the root of the word אביב ‘aviv’ which is also associated with the color green.

av green

Éirinn go Brách – Ireland forever

The ancient name of Ireland was ‘Iveriu’ which comes from the Hebrew word עברי ‘ivri’ which means Hebrew.

There is a lot of history that links ancient Israel to Ireland.  Some historians believe that James the Son of Alphaeus took the Gospel to Ireland hundreds of years before St. Patrick was born.  Other historians trace the wanderings of the 10 tribes of Israel after being taken into Assyrian captivity to the land of Europe and the British isles.

The father of Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) wrote that the Irish use a harp as a symbol since they believe they are descended from King David of Judah.

“Tradition has it that the Harp of David was brought to Ireland by Jeremiah and is buried with Tea Tephi at Tara. It is a significant fact that the royal arms of Ireland is a representation of the Harp of David, and has been such for 2500 years.”

The word Éirinn may trace back to the Hebrew word ארון ‘aron’ which means an ark, as in the ark of the covenant, the throne of God.  There is also a lot of history linking Israel to Ireland through the ‘Stone of Destiny,’ the rock upon which the kings of Ireland were enthroned.

The Lia Fáil, also known as the Stone of Destiny, is a stone at the Inauguration Mound (Irish: an Forrad) on the Hill of Tara in County Meath in Ireland, which served as the coronation stone for the High Kings of Ireland. In legend, all of the kings of Ireland were crowned on the stone up to Muirchertach mac Ercae c. AD 500.

The Stone of Scone, also commonly known as the Stone of Destiny or the Coronation Stone is an oblong block of red sandstone, used for centuries in the coronation of the monarchs of Scotland, the monarchs of England, and, more recently, British monarchs. Historically, the artifact was kept at the now-ruined Scone Abbey in Scone, near Perth, Scotland. Other names by which it has sometimes been known include Jacob’s Pillow Stone and the Tanist Stone, and in Scottish Gaelic, clach-na-cinneamhain, clach Sgàin, and Lia(th) Fàil.  

It is believed by some to be the stone upon which Jacob rested when he saw the vision of the ladder to heaven (Genesis 28:10-22). Jesus likened Himself to the ladder which Jacob saw.

Joh 1:51  And he saith unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Hereafter ye shall see heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of man.

It is here that the promise of Abraham and Isaac were passed to Jacob.  Jacob named this place Bethel which means house of God.  This is speaking of Messiah Jesus and His body.

Mat 16:18  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

1Ti 3:15  But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

It  is alleged that the Lia Fáil was brought to Ireland by way of Egypt and Spain by one of the lost tribes of Israel with the prophet Jeremiah. The Lia Fail was also blessed by Saint Patrick, Ireland’s patron saint.

It is believed by some that the Kings of Ireland, Scotland and now Britain are descended from King David and are a fulfillment of God’s promise that his throne would never be taken away.

However, Scripture indicates that Jesus is the true King of Israel, not Queen Elizabeth.

Psa 89:36  His Seed shall be forever, and his throne as the sun before Me.
Psa 89:37  Like the moon, it shall be forever; and a faithful witness in the sky. Selah.
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.
Rev 19:16  And He has on His garment and on His thigh a name having been written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

 

Shamrock

One traditional icon of the day is the shamrock. This stems from a traditional Irish tale that tells how Patrick used the three-leafed shamrock to explain the Trinity. He used it in his sermons to represent how the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit could all exist as separate elements of the same entity. His followers adopted the custom of wearing a shamrock on his feast day.

The scientific name of Clover is trifolium or trefoil from the Latin ‘tres’ which means “three” and ‘folium’ which means “leaf.”

The word ‘shamrock’ comes from the 1570s, from the Irish word ‘seamrog’ which is a diminutive of ‘seamar’ which means clover.

The English word ‘clover’ comes from the Old English ‘clafre’ and is related to the Western Germanic word ‘klaiwaz’ which means a ‘sticky pap.’  Anatoly Liberman in his book “Analytic Dictionary of English Etymology” suggests that the ‘sticky juice of clover was the base of the most popular sort of honey.’  Honey is a symbol of God’s Word (Psalm 119:103; 19:10).

This is interesting to note because the word clover ultimately traces back to the Hebrew word חלבנה ‘chalvanah’ which is the sticky ‘gum’ used in antiquity as glue, translated as ‘galbanum’ in Scripture (Exodus 30:34).  חלבנה ‘chalvanah’ comes from the root חלב ‘chelev’ which means fat or milk.

To ‘be in clover’ meant to live luxuriously as ‘clover was extremely delicious and fattening to cattle.’

The English word ‘gum’ comes from the Hebrew גם ‘gam.’

The Hebrew letter ג ‘gimel’ originally was pronounced as גם ‘gam.’

Ancient Hebrew Lexicon of the Bible pg 22

 

גם ‘gam’ links back to baptism, through the meaning of collecting at the waters.

To further illustrate this, the word אגם ‘agam’, which comes from the root גם ‘gam,’ is translated as pool in English, just as מקוה ‘miqveh’ (baptism) is.

Amazingly, the account of Moses being drawn out of the waters after being hidden for 3 months is linked to this word.

Exo 2:3  And she was not able to hide him any longer, and she took a basket for him made of papyrus (גמא ‘gome’ from the root גם ‘gam’), and she daubed it with bitumen and with pitch. And she put the child in it, and placed it in the reeds by the lip of the Nile.

The Hebrew letter ג ‘gimel’ is a pictograph of a foot but also represents a camel.

The Holy Scriptures link the camel to the gathering of the waters:

Gen 24:11  And he made the camels kneel {ברך ‘berakh’} outside the city, by a well of water at the time of the evening, the time that women go out to draw.

In Hebrew the word is ברך ‘berakh’ connects with the word גמל ‘gamal’/מקוה ‘miqveh’ through the English word ‘pool.’  The word pool is translated from 3 different Hebrew words.  אגם ‘agam,’ מקוה ‘miqveh,’ and ברכה ‘berakah.’


This word comes from the root:


Notice that the parent root of this word is בר ‘bar.’  This is the word for Son as well (Psalm 2:12).  It is also the root for the word for soap.


Washing of the body, as well as washing of the clothing points to Messiah.  At Mt. Sinai, Israel was to was their clothing and be ready for the 3rd day when they would meet God.  Interestingly, the human body was designed to bathe with soap every 2-3 days.

The word above, בר ‘bar,’ is translated as son in Psalm 2:12; Proverbs 31:2 & Daniel 3:25, and is used in reference to the Word in Psalm 19:8.  The link here is clear.  The need for the body & our clothing to bathe in water and soap is a picture of man needing to be covered in the garments of the Word/Jesus.

Psa 24:3  Who shall go up into the hill of Jehovah? And who shall rise in His holy place?
Psa 24:4  He who has clean hands and a pure heart; who has not lifted up his soul to vanity and has not sworn deceit.
Psa 24:5  He shall lift up the blessing
(ברכה ‘berakah’) from Jehovah, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

What is the blessing?

Psa 133:3  like the dew of Hermon coming down on the mountains of Zion; for there Jehovah commanded the blessing: life till everlasting.

Act 3:25  You are sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God appointed our fathers, saying to Abraham, “Even in your Seed all the families of the earth shall be blessed.“ Gen. 22:18
Act 3:26  Having raised up His child Jesus, God sent Him first to you, blessing you in turning away each one from your iniquities.

This blessing is seen in the natural realm, as described in the book of Hebrews, pointing back to the 3rd day of creation

Heb 6:7  (For the earth drinking in the rain often coming upon it, and producing vegetation suitable for those for whom it is also worked, receives blessing from God;
Heb 6:8  “but bearing thorns and thistles,” it is deemed unfit and near a curse, of which the end is for burning.)
Gen. 3:17, 18

Being clothed with His righteousness is linked with the earth springing forth plants which occurs during the time of Spring, the time in which St. Patrick’s day is celebrated.

Isa 61:10  Rejoicing I will rejoice in Jehovah. My soul shall be joyful in my God. For He clothed me with garments of salvation; He put on me the robe of righteousness, even as a bridegroom dons as a priest his head-dress, and as a bride wears her ornaments.
Isa 61:11  For as the earth comes out with her buds, and as a garden causes that which is sown to grow, so the Lord Jehovah will make righteousness and praise to grow before all the nations.

Back to the letter ג ‘gimel’…

The letter ג ‘gimel’ points to completion, just as the number 3 through does.

Psa 57:2  I will cry to God Most High, to God who works (גמר ‘gamar’ – perfects)  for me.

Psa 138:8  Jehovah will perfect His work in me; O Jehovah, Your mercy endures forever; You will not forsake the works of Your hands.

This concept of working to perfection through God’s Word/Image being formed in us is seen further in:

2Ti 3:16  All Scripture is God-breathed and profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
2Ti 3:17  so that the man of God may be perfected, being fully furnished for every good work.

 

“The גימל gimmel, is cognate to גמל gamol, which means to nourish until completely ripe, as in ויגמל שקדים, it produced mature almonds (Numbers 17:23).  Of Isaac, the Torah states: The child grew, ויגמל, and was weaned (Genesis 21:8); there gamol refers to the development of an infant to the point that it can live without it’s mother’s nursing.”  {The Wisdom in the Hebrew Alphabet pg 71}

This concept of maturity being linked with being weaned is further seen in the book of Hebrews

Heb 5:12  For indeed because of the time you are due to be teachers, yet you need to have someone to teach you again the rudiments of the beginning of the Words of God, and you came to be having need of milk, and not of solid food;
Heb 5:13  for everyone partaking of milk is without experience in the Word of Righteousness, for he is an infant.
Heb 5:14  But solid food is for those full grown, having exercised the faculties through habit, for distinction of both good and bad.

Heb 6:1  Because of this, having left the discourse of the beginning of Christ, let us be borne on to full growth, not laying down again a foundation of repentance from dead works, and of faith toward God,
Heb 6:2  of baptisms, of doctrine, and of laying on of hands, and of resurrection of dead ones, and of eternal judgment.
Heb 6:3  And this we will do, if indeed God permits.
Heb 6:4  For it is impossible for those once having been enlightened, and having tasted of the heavenly gift, and becoming sharers of the Holy Spirit,
Heb 6:5  and tasting the good Word of God, and the works of power of a coming age,
Heb 6:6  and having fallen away, it is impossible for them again to renew to repentance, crucifying again for themselves the Son of God, and putting Him to open shame.

Notice that Paul links this concept of maturity with the springing forth of plants and fruit.

Heb 6:7  (For the earth drinking in the rain often coming upon it, and producing vegetation suitable for those for whom it is also worked, receives blessing from God;
Heb 6:8  “but bearing thorns and thistles,” it is deemed unfit and near a curse, of which the end is for burning.) Gen. 3:17, 18

To further show this connection, the word for ‘complete/mature’ is


כל ‘kol’ is the source for the English word ‘cell.’  This is a fascinating connection as it is the ribosomes which read the amino acids (22 letters) which makes proteins that form our cells.

The word ribosome comes from ribose which is a ‘sugar’ that is formed from ‘gum arabic.’

“GUM, sticky resin, was first produced from lakeside plants, thus from אגם, lake, pond.  This material was later replaced by the rubber plant, but the GUM name stuck.” (E-Word pg 518)

גמא ‘gome’ is the source of the word ‘papyrus’ which is the source for paper and Bible.

In the Scriptures, gum comes forth from חלבנה ‘chalvanah.’  Recall that clover/shamrock trace back to this Hebrew word.  This is translated as ‘galbanum’ as in Exodus 30:34.

חלבנה ‘chalvanah’ comes from the root חלב ‘chalav’ which means the fat or choicest part.  The job of ribosomes in the cell (The English word cell comes from כל ‘kol’) is to ‘read’ the 22 amino acids in order to form proteins.  Milk is a high source of protein that is fundamental in growth of children.

As mentioned before, the Lia Fail is linked to “Jacob’s ladder” mentioned in Genesis 28.  This ladder can be seen on a deeper level in DNA.  DNA is a picture of the Word of God.

The Hebrew word for food comes from כל ‘kol’:

On the 3rd day the plants, trees and fruit appeared which became food for man.

Gen 1:30  And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so.

Gen 2:9  And out of the ground Jehovah God made to spring up every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food. The Tree of Life was also in the middle of the garden; also the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.

 

GREEN

Gen 1:11  And God said, Let the earth bring forth (דשא ‘dasha’) grass (דשא ‘deshe’), the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself, upon the earth: and it was so.

Above, it is seen that the earth bringing forth (דשא ‘dasha’) is linked to birth/rebirth/resurrection.  דשא ‘dasha’ (bringing forth) is the same Hebrew word as grass (דשא ‘deshe’).


This links grass with birth and resurrection.  דשא ‘deshe’ is also translated as green.

Psa 23:2  He makes me lie down in green {דשא ‘deshe’} pastures; He leads me to waters of rest;

Green – כרפס ‘karpas’

One of the words translated as green in the Scriptures is כרפס ‘karpas’ (Esther 1:6).

Those who have celebrated Passover with a traditional seder are familiar with this word.  It is the point of the meal where the כרפס ‘karpas’ (usually parsley) is dipped in saltwater, symbolically representing resurrection and passing through the Red Sea.  This was a picture of baptism and resurrection.

1Co 10:1  And I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud, and all passed through the Sea.
1Co 10:2  And all were baptized to Moses in the cloud, and in the Sea,
1Co 10:3  and all ate the same spiritual food.
1Co 10:4  And all drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank of the spiritual rock following, and that Rock was Christ.

One of the words for grass is לח ‘lach’ which further connects this concept of birth & resurrection.  Specifically, this is referring to fresh green grass.


This word is translated as green/moist but also as ‘natural force’ as seen in Deuteronomy 34:7

Deu 34:7  And Moses was a son of a hundred and twenty years at his death; his eye had not become dim, nor had his natural force {לח ‘lach’} abated.

As seen in the study on ‘Nature’, this natural force (לח ‘lach’) is related to the nature (φύσις ‘phusis’) of Messiah.  This again connects to the above concept of race in that the word for race above is the Greek word γενος ‘genos’ which means kind/nature.  The Hebrew word for nature is טבע ‘teva,’ which traces back to the root word טב ‘tov.’  This links to another word translated as green/fresh רטב ‘ratov.’

רטב ‘ratov’ is translated as green in Job 8:16

Job 8:16  He is moist (KJV green) before the sun, and his tender plants shoot forth on his garden.

טב ‘tov’ links to the resurrection in Job 33

Job 33:23  If there is a messenger for him, a mediator, one among a thousand, to declare for man his uprightness,
Job 33:24  then let Him be gracious to him and say, Deliver him from going down to the Pit, for I have found a ransom!
Job 33:25  His flesh shall be fresher* than in vigor; let him return to the days of his youth.

The word fresher, translated above, is from the Hebrew רטפש ‘rataphash,’, which comes from the same root טב ‘tov.’

Going back to the word לח ‘lach’, another fascinating connection is seen to the current study.  Those who are reborn in Messiah will be in His image.  Walking Torah Scrolls, Living Bibles.

2Co 3:3  it having been made plain that you are Christ’s letter, served by us, not having been inscribed by ink, but by the Spirit of the living God, not in tablets of stone, but in fleshly tablets of the heart.

The word in Hebrew for tablet is לוח ‘luach’ which comes from the above word לח ‘lach.’

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

The word for finger {אצבע ‘etsba’} is from the root for the word ‘color,’ which is linked to baptism.  To baptize in Hebrew is the word טבל ‘tabal’ which literally pictures a woman taking linen and dipping it into a colored dye where the linen or cloth becomes that color after being dipped into the water.  טבל ‘tabal,’ is the act of dipping something into water so that it becomes new.


To further solidify this concept, the Torah written on the hearts is synonymous with circumcision of the heart, circumcision pictures baptism & resurrection (Ezekiel 11:19-20; 36:26-27; Romans 2:29; Colossians 2:11-13).

Grass shooting forth out of the ground is a picture of birth, as well as resurrection seen above.  It is linked to the Word (tablets of the testimony) and is a reminder that only those born again in Messiah will have eternal life.  Those who are born of the flesh and not of the Spirit will perish (John 3:3; Mark 16:16).

Isa 40:6  A voice said, Cry! And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all its grace as the flower of the field!
Isa 40:7  The grass withers, the flower fades because the Spirit of Jehovah blows on it. Surely the people is grass.
Isa 40:8  The grass withers; the flower fades; but the Word of our God shall rise forever.

1Pe 1:23  being regenerated, not by corruptible seed, but incorruptible, through the living Word of God, and remaining forever.
1Pe 1:24  Because “all flesh is as grass, and all the glory of men as the flower of grass; the grass was dried, and its flower fell out,
1Pe 1:25  but the Word of the Lord remains forever.” And this is the Word announced as gospel to you.
Isaiah 40:6-8

Psa 92:7  When the wicked flourish like grass, and all the evildoers blossom, it is for them to be destroyed forever.
Psa 92:8  But You, O Jehovah, are exalted forever.

Green food

Gen 1:30  And to every beast of the earth, and to all birds of the heavens, and to every creeper on the earth which has in it a living soul, every green plant is for food. And it was so.


This word comes from the root:


Here it is seen that this word is associated with vanity or something that is only temporary.

Isa 40:6  A voice said, Cry! And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all its grace as the flower of the field!
Isa 40:7  The grass withers, the flower fades because the Spirit of Jehovah blows on it. Surely the people is grass.
Isa 40:8  The grass withers; the flower fades; but the Word of our God shall rise forever.

Vanity of vanities


The book of Ecclesiastes goes into great detail explaining the ‘vanity’ of life.  In Solomon’s search for wisdom he comes to the final conclusion:

Ecc 12:13  Let us hear the conclusion {סוף ‘soph’} of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep His commandments; for this applies (כל ‘kol’ – completion) to every man.

The word translated here as conclusion comes from the following Hebrew word.

This word {סוף ‘soph’} is connected to baptism {מקוה ‘miqveh’} as both words point to a body of water.  אסף ‘asaph’ means to gather and comes from this root word סוף ‘soph.’

Green 528

The frequency of 528 corresponds with the color green.  528 is also considered the frequency which ‘heals’ DNA.  The number 528 is also associated with the resurrection which is pictured by the season of Spring (time of green).  According to the research of Len Horowitz, the number 528 is associated with the frequencies of the sun and chlorophyll.

“The sun, made entirely of hydrogen, emits light (photons) and sound (phonons) via electrons that resonate fundamentally 528Hz frequency according to NASA recordings.  Compare the sound of the sun with the pure tone of 528Hz produced by 528 tuning forks. They are very much alike, with 528Hz at the heart of the sun’s sound.


Chlorophyll also broadcasts structurally and energetically mostly 528Hz frequency of sound and 528nm of light. This is all synchronized with the sun’s frequency of electron energy. This is how and why chlorophyll produces oxygen from carbon dioxide resonating in 528. You breath O2 resonating, and phase-locking, you to the Source of LOVE528 from the “Father” and the sun. The Creator sang, “Let there be light,” to create the sun and universe.”

St. Patrick’s Day heralds in Spring, a time of plants springing forth, the color green filling the earth and the return of the warmth of the sunSpring pictures the resurrection from the dead (winter) where light overcomes darkness.

It is only through the resurrection that we will be formed into His image.

1Jn 3:1  See what manner of love the Father has given us, that we may be called children of God. For this reason the world does not know us, because it did not know Him.
1Jn 3:2  Beloved, now we are the children of God, and it was not yet revealed what we shall be. But we know that if He is revealed, we shall be like Him, because we shall see Him as He is.

It was declared that Jesus is the Son by the resurrection.

Rom 1:1  Paul, a slave of Jesus Christ, a called apostle, separated to the gospel of God,
Rom 1:2  which He promised before through His prophets in the holy Scriptures,
Rom 1:3  concerning His Son who came of the seed of David according to flesh,
Rom 1:4  who was marked out the Son of God in power, according to the Spirit of holiness, by the resurrection of the dead, Jesus Christ our Lord;

The word translated as ‘marked out’ is ὁρίζω ‘horizō’ which is the source of the English word ‘horizon.’  This word obviously links to the sun as it is the horizon where the sun rises and sets.  It further linked to ‘predestination’ as we are chosen before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4).  In Hebrew this is the concept of עלם ‘olam’ which is usually translated as forever or eternity but in concrete thought means ‘beyond the horizon.’  The word for time in Hebrew, עת ‘et,’ means to ‘see the mark’ is perfectly displayed in the equinox/tequfah of Spring.

The Greek word for resurrection is ἀνάστασις anastasis’ which is used 44 times in Scripture.  The number 44 is linked to birth.  The word to give birth/child in Hebrew is ילד ‘yeled’ whose numerical value is 44.  Father + Mother {אם ’em’ + אב ‘av’ } also has the value of 44.

The phrase ‘He is redeemed’ יגאל ‘yigal’ (Leviticus 25:30) is equivalent to 44, as well as ‘in the Jubilee’ ביבל ‘bayovel’ (Leviticus 25:28).

The Hebrew letter which is equivalent to 4 is ד  ‘dalet’ so 44 would be displayed דד.  This is the Hebrew word for bosom or love.  The bosom is linked to the love of the Father in giving His only begotten Son for the salvation of mankind.  It is interesting to note that the Hebrew word for lamb טלה ‘taleh’ also has the numerical value of 44.

דד (dalet dalet).  In Paleo Hebrew this would be rendered:

Combined these form the hexagram.

44 ft = 528 inches = 26 cubits

26 = יהוה ‘Yahweh’

528 inches…The numerical value of 528 also has interesting connections to the current study.

The Number 528 – THE KEY

 

He resurrects us in/from His Word

Psa 119:25  DALETH: My soul clings to the dust; give me life according to Your Word.

Psa 119:37  Turn my eyes from seeing vanity; in Your way give me life.

Psa 119:40  Behold, I have longed for Your Precepts; grant to me life in Your righteousness.

Psa 119:50  This is my comfort in my affliction; for Your Word has given me life.

Psa 119:93  I will never forget Your Precepts; for with them You gave me life.

Psa 119:107  I am greatly afflicted; O Jehovah, give me life according to Your Word.

Psa 119:149  Hear my voice by Your mercy, O Jehovah; give me life by Your judgment.

Psa 119:156  O Jehovah, Your tender mercies are great; give me life according to Your judgments.

Psa 119:159  See how I love Your Precepts, O Jehovah; give me life according to Your mercy.

Rom 8:2  For the Law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus set me free from the law of sin and of death.

Php 3:20  For our citizenship is in Heaven, from where we also wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ,

Php 3:21  who will transform our body of humiliation, for it to be conformed to His body of glory, according to the working of Him to be able even to subject all things under Himself.

2Co 4:14  knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up through Jesus, and will present us with you.

It is interesting to note that there are 66 bones in the human arm and shoulders corresponding to the 66 books of the Bible.

The Messiah, the Word, is likened to the Arm of the LORD (Isaiah 53:1).  The bones of the human arm and hand are a picture of the Word. The Messiah is specifically described as the ‘Hand’ of God (Psalm 118:14-16; Isaiah 48:13; Acts 5:31 etc.). The human hand consists of 27 bones which correspond to the 27 books of the New Testament. These bones are divided into 3 parts. 5 metacarpal bones of the palm corresponding to the Gospels & Revelation. 14 bones of the fingers corresponding to the epistles of Paul and 8 bones in the wrist corresponding to the epistles of the other Apostles…


The hand is connected to the three bones of the Arm (Isaiah 40:10; 63:5-8; Psalm 44:3; Deuteronomy 33:2 etc.) which correspond to the Torah, Prophets & Writings. The arm connects to the shoulder of which we are yoked to the Most High (Matthew 11:30), walking in one consent (Zephaniah 3:9).


In short, the 27 bones of the hand connect to 3 bones in the arm which equals 30.  30 bones in each arm and hand add up to 60.  This is amazing as the arms connect to the shoulders which consist of the 2 shoulder bones themselves that are connected to 2 clavicles and 2 scapulas which = 6.  60+6= 66…the exact number of books in the Bible!

The Hebrew word for shoulder is שכם ‘shekhem’ which is also linked to the resurrection as the word literally means to rise early and place a load on the shoulders in order to depart.

Gen 22:3  And Abraham started up early {שכם ‘shekhem’} in the morning and saddled his ass, and he took two of his youths with him, and his son Isaac. And he split wood for a burnt offering, and rose up and went to the place which God had said to him.

Rev 22:16  I, Jesus, sent My angel to testify these things to you over the assemblies. I am the Root and Offspring of David, the bright and morning Star.

Rev 3:7  And to the angel of the assembly in Philadelphia, write: These things says the Holy One, the True One, the One having “the key of David,” “the One opening, and no one shuts; and shuts, and no one opens:” Isa. 22:22

Isa 22:22  And the key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder, so that he opens, and no one shuts; and he shuts, and no one opens.

The English word ‘clavicle’ or ‘collarbone’ comes from the Latin word ‘clavicula’ which means a key.  In the days of Messiah, keys were shaped like the modern day letter F.

F is the 6th letter in the English alphabet corresponding to the Hebrew letter ו ‘vav’.   ו ‘vav’ has the meaning of a nail.

Isa 22:22  And the key of the house of David I will lay on his shoulder, so that he opens, and no one shuts; and he shuts, and no one opens.

The muscle that hangs off of the clavicle is the deltoid.
