Daily Tidbits 4/1/14 – April

daily tidbits april

April comes from the Latin ‘mensis Aprilis’ which means month of Venus. In Old English the month was called ‘Eastermonao’ which means Easter  month. April also traces back to the Old French ‘avril’ which traces back further to the Latin ‘Aprilis’ which means Venus. Venus is the morning star.

The Hebrew word for Venus is נגה ‘nagah ‘which means to shine and is the source of the Latin word ‘ignis’ which means to ignite or fire, which connects to the East.  The word ‘East’ comes from the Hebrew word אש ‘esh’  which means fire.  The sun rises in the East, picturing the resurrection which corresponds with Easter which displays the same.

Each day when the sun rises it is a picture of the resurrection as well (Malachi 4:2). In Hebrew the word for dawn is שחר ‘shachar’ from the root שח ‘shach’ which means the pit. When the sun sets it is a picture of death/going into the pit, when it arises it is a picture of resurrection.

venus morning star

Venus is the bright and morning star.

Isaac Mozeson traces the Etymology of Venus back to the Hebrew word לבן ‘lavan’ which means white or shining.  White is associated with beauty and pureness as well as the resurrection of the righteous.  לבן ‘lavan’  is also the Hebrew word for the moon.  It is no surprise then that Venus is pictured with moon iconography.

Who is the true bright and morning star?  Messiah Jesus.

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.

The Greek word for morning is ὀρθρινός ‘orthrinos’ which is used in the Septuagint to translate the Hebrew word שכם ‘shakam’ which means the shoulder, but also to arise early (Genesis 22:3).  This word is also linked to the resurrection, celebrated during Easter.

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.
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
Luk 1:78  Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us,
Luk 1:79  To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.
Luk 1:80  And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.

In Luke 1:78, the dayspring/daystar is translated from the Greek word ἀνατολή ‘anatolē’which also is translated as East (Matthew 2:1-2,9; 8:11; 24:24; Luke 13:29; Revelation 7:2; 21:12-13)

ἀνατολή ‘anatolē’ is also used in the Septuagint to translate the Hebrew words מזרח ‘mizrach’ and קדם ‘qedem’ which mean the rising sun in the East as well as נגה ‘nogah’ which means shining and also is the Hebrew word for Venus.  Interestingly, ἀνατολή  ‘anatole’ is also used to translate the Hebrew word צמח ‘tsemach’ which means a branch, used specifically in reference to Messiah.

צמח ‘tsemach,’ the BRANCH, is used 5 times in Scripture {Isaiah 4:2; Jeremiah 23:5-6; 33:15-16; Zechariah 3:8-10; 6:12-13}.  Venus is linked to the number five as its rotation through the skies makes a pentagon shape.  From a fixed location over an eight year period (8 is the number of resurrection), the planet Venus travels a unique celestial pathway that exactly portrays a pentagram.

“As the orbi of Venus is closer to the sun than the earth’s position, she is never seen more than 48 degrees from the sun.  During a period of 247 days, Venus is visible as the Evening star that is, withing 48 degrees or less of the sun after the sun has set.  Then Venus comes too close to the sun for us to see her.  She remains invisible for 14 days, then reappears as the Morning star (or Eastern star) immediately before the sun rises in the east….Only Venus possesses the five-pointed star sign.”  {Carl Ljungman- Dictionary of Symbols}

The pentagram mathematically depicts the Fibonacci pattern.

Number Five (5) and Phi
“The number 5 is intrinsically related to Phi and the Fibonacci series
Phi can be derived from several formulas based on the number 5.  The most traditional, based on the geometric construction of phi is this:

phi 1

This formula for phi can also be expressed all in fives as:

phi 2

Phi appears in the geometry of the 5-sided pentagon

Take a pentagon with 5 equal sides and connect all the points to form a 5-pointed star.  The ratios of the lengths of the resulting line segments are all based on phi.

phi 4

5 is the 5th Fibonacci number
5 is also the 5th of the Fibonacci numbers, including 0, 1, 2, 3, and 5.
5 appears in the human body, which has proportions based on phi
Another interesting aspect of phi and five is in relation to the design of the human body, which in addition to being based on phi relationships in its proportions, has:
* 5 appendages from the torso, in the two arms, two legs and a head,
* 5 appendages on each of legs and arms in the five fingers and five toes,
* 5 openings on the face, and
* 5 senses in sight, sound, touch, taste and smell.

The Divine Proportion in the Body

The white line is the body’s height.

The blue line, a golden section of the white line, defines the distance from the head to the finger tips.

The yellow line, a golden section of the blue line, defines the distance from the head to the navel and the elbows.

The green line, a golden section of the yellow line, defines the distance from the head to the pectorals and inside top of the arms, the width of the shoulders, the length of the forearm and the shin bone.

The magenta line, a golden section of the green line, defines the distance from the head to the base of the skull and the width of the abdomen. The sectioned portions of the magenta line determine the position of the nose and the hairline.

Although not shown, the golden section of the magenta line (also the short section of the green line) defines the width of the head and half the width of the chest and the hips.”

The Human face, ears, and teeth are based upon Phi
The human hand and foot are based on Phi
The human heartbeat is based upon Phi

The Gospel is connected with flesh. Where is the first reference to flesh? The union of Adam and Eve…a picture of Jesus and His Bride becoming one is  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 rib of Adam from whence his bride came out is linked to the number 5 which connects to the 5th day of creation and life.

חמשׁ ‘chamesh’ is used to translate multiple terms in Hebrew.  It is used for the number five/fifty, the hand, to be armed and the side of the body (fifth rib).

The ‘fifth rib’

This word is used in the following verses: 2Samuel 2:23; 3:27; 4:6; 20:10

Messiah was wounded in the side (‘the fifth rib’).

Joh 19:34  But one of the soldiers pierced His side with a lance, and at once blood and water came out.

Adam’s bride came forth from his rib/side (Genesis 2:22) which is a picture of Messiah’s bride ‘coming forth’ when He offered Himself as an atonement to bring us back to God.  Interestingly, the year of Jubilee, which occurs every 50 (חמשים ‘chamashim’) years (Leviticus 25:10-13) began on the Day of Atonement.  The great trumpet (Isaiah 27:13) will be blown and those resurrected in the 1st resurrection will receive their inheritance in the land.  This is interesting because the shofar is in the Fibonacci sequence which the pattern the Most High uses in His creation of life.  The Fibonacci sequence is encoded with the number 5.
