Shadows of Messiah

All that we experience in this life was created to lead us to our Creator (Romans 1:19-20; Psalm 33:6-9; 150:6; Isaiah 40:26; 41:20; 45:5-8). All that we see, hear, touch, taste and feel was created so that we might see the Most High and be drawn to Him. Just as the personality of an artist can be see through his paintings or the heart of an author can be seen through his writings, so too the creation allows us to see the Creator. All of His works are embedded with His image.

Jesus is THE image of God  (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4-6; Colossians 1:15-16), who is displayed in shadows or parables throughout creation.

The Holy Scriptures state that Messiah is all and in all (Colossians 3:11), this is because He is the Creator (Ephesians 3:9; 1 Corinthians 8:6; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:12-17; Hebrews 1:1-12).

The purpose of “Shadows of Messiah” is to reveal Messiah in His creation, to establish the foundation that all branches of science point to Him.  In Hebrew,  צל ‘tsel’ means shadow.  צ ‘tsadi’ is a picture of a man on his side and ל ‘lamed’ is a picture of a shepherd’s staff.  The picture here is a man’s shadow being cast to his side when standing with the shepherd’s staff representing authority, as the man is the ‘authority’ or body of the shadow.  The shepherd’s staff also gives the sense of walking towards something.  If one walks towards the direction of a shadow, one will end up at the source.

The purpose of Shadows of Messiah is to lead one to Messiah, the body or reality.
Col 2:9  For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.
Col 2:17  Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Most realize that the study of creation inevitably leads one to the conclusion that there is a Creator even if that person has not come to the knowledge of the Bible being the Word of that same Creator.

From the amazing complexity of the DNA molecule to the harmony and synchronicity of the heavenly bodies, it can not be denied that there is a Creator who made these things. What is not understood by most, I believe, is that His creation is a “type” or shadow picture of His ‘Word.’ His creation points to His Word as creation came forth from His Word (Psalm 33:6; Hebrews 11:3; John 1:1-3).

 

Not only did the Creator give His Word to mankind to lead them to the knowledge of salvation found in the Messiah, so too, He gave them shadows and parables in all of nature that lead them to Him as well.

Colossians 3:11 states that Christ Jesus is all and in all.

Col 3:11 Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free: but Christ is all, and in all.

 

In creation, this concept is seen in shadow picture or parable form.  All things are a shadow pointing back to Messiah (Hebrews 8:5; 9:24; 10:1; Colossians 2:16-17) who is the Image of God (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15-16).

As mentioned before, all that we experience in this life was created to lead us to our Creator (Romans 1:19-20; Psalm 33:6-9; 150:6; Isaiah 40:26; 41:20; 45:5-8).  All that we see, hear, touch, taste and feel was created so that we might see the Most High and be drawn to Him.  Creation allows us to “see” the invisible  Creator (Romans 1:19-20).

He is the Great Artist, the Maker of all things.  The English word ‘artist’ comes form the Hebrew word יצר ‘yatsar’ which means to create or form, as a potter molding clay.  The Lord is the former {יצר ‘yatsar’} of all things (Jeremiah 10:16; 51:19).  As a result, all of His works are embedded with His image.

Everything we see, hear, touch, taste & smell point to Him,  calling us to Him, to know Him more, to walk closer with Him, to glorify Him and praise Him.  He is described as Light, Love, Truth, Life, the Way…The Tabernacle and the Temple (which display on a deeper level the human body) are shadow pictures of Him (Exodus 25:9,).  Our bodies as a whole point to Him and each individual part teaches and points back to Messiah.  He is described as the Living Waters, He is seen in the trees, vines, branches, roots, the rocks, the earth, lilies, roses, seed, the grass, the clouds, fire, the wind,  the sun, moon and stars.  Music, color, numbers, shapes and all frequencies point to Him.  Lions, lambs, oxen, eagles, chickens etc., all point to Him.  He is seen in armies, captains, kings, swords & shields.  He is seen in the institution of the family, fathers, sons, daughters & mothers.  He is seen in marriage and children.  He is seen in farming, carpentry, education & manufacturing.  All things point us to Him.

The Holy Scriptures state that Christ Jesus is all and in all (Colossians 3:11),  this is because He is the Creator (Ephesians 3:9; 1 Corinthians 8:6; John 1:1-3; Colossians 1:12-17; Hebrews 1:1-12).  All things are a shadow pointing back to Messiah (Hebrews 8:5; 9:24; 10:1; Colossians 2:16-17) who is the Image of God (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15-16).

From the time that we wake up, get dressed, bathe, eat breakfast and go to work, to the time that we go to bed, all that we see and do and experience is pointing to Him.  When we awake from sleep and when the sun rises it points to the resurrection so that we can see Messiah, give thanks and glorify His name.  Each time that we feel our heart beat it is pumping waters of life which makes a sound similar to תודה ‘to-dah’, תודה ‘to-dah’  {“thank you, thank you”} and each breathe we take proclaims His name.  When we inhale it sounds like “Yah”, when we exhale it sounds like “way”….תודה יהוה ‘to-dah Yahweh,’ תודה יהוה ‘to-dah Yahweh,’ our bodies are proclaiming all day everyday.

When we get dressed in the morning it reminds us that when mankind fell it was God who clothed Adam pointing to the Lamb that was slain from the foundation of the earth.  When we bathe it points to baptism and being reborn in Messiah, in fact the word for soap traces back to the Hebrew word  בר ‘bar’ which is translated as Son in reference to Christ (Psalm 2:12; Proverb 31:2).  We eat our breakfasts or our “daily bread” who is Messiah/the Word (Matthew 6:11; 4:4; Deuteronomy 8:3).  Breakfast, lunch and dinner reminds us of the Biblical concept of praying 3 times a day, which corresponds to the specific hours mentioned in reference to Messiah on the cross and the hours of prayer (3rd, 6th, 9th hours).

We go to our jobs or to school and are reminded that He is the one that gives us the power to gain wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18).  He is the one that gives us the intellect and skill to do our jobs.  Our jobs remind us that we are to be servants to one another, just as He was.  After the work day we come home, showing a picture of entering into the Kingdom when our work is done.  We sit down to eat dinner, showing the picture of the wedding supper where we eat with our loved ones.

As one begins to see shadow pictures and parables of Messiah in all of creation, the sense of awe and wonder that one experiences is beyond words.

Rom 11:33 O the depth of the riches and of the wisdom and the knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!
Rom 11:34 “For who has known the mind of the Lord? Or who became His counselor?” Isa. 40:13
Rom 11:35 “Or who first gave to Him, and it will be repaid to him?” Job 41:11

Rom 11:36 Because of Him, and through Him, and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.

In the beginning, the Spirit of God hovered over the waters (Genesis 1:2).  The word for hover in this verse is רחף ‘rachaph’ which pictures a bird overshadowing her nest.  The Almighty then said “let there be light” from whence all matter came forth, creating a shadow of His image over all of creation.

All things are a shadow pointing back to Messiah (Hebrews 8:5; 9:24; 10:1; Colossians 2:16-17) who is the Image of God (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15-16).  In our 3 dimensional world we are familiar with 2 dimensional shadows that are cast by 3 dimensional objects.  Scripture, and even science speaks of a 4th dimensional spirit realm.  A 4th dimensional object will cast a 3 dimensional shadow.  The Almighty, who dwells in this 4th dimension casts a 3 dimensional shadow which is seen in all His handiwork of this creation.  In the beginning, the Spirit hovered over the waters (Genesis 1:2). The word for hover here (רחף ‘rachaph’) links to a bird overshadowing her nest. The Almighty then said let there be light which cast a shadow over the entire universe. Hence, all of His creation is a shadow pointing back to Him.

good creation

The Scriptures admonish us to think upon that which is good, and righteous etc.

Php 4:8  For the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever honorable, whatever is right, whatever pure, whatever lovely, whatever of good report, if of any virtue, and if of any praise, think on these things.

What is good?  His creation

Gen 1:31  And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.

In the world today His creation is full of death and pain and sorrow as a result of sin (Romans 8:19-23; 5:12).  This too points to Messiah who is the Redeemer of this fallen world (Titus 2:13-14; Job 19:25; Psalm 19:14; Romans 3:24).  He is the Holy One, the Creator (Isaiah 43:15) & Redeemer (Isaiah 41:14; 43:14; 47:4; 48:17; 49:7).

The Scriptures speak of musing or thinking upon His Word (Deuteronomy 6:6-7; Joshua 1:8; Psalm 119:15, 23, 48, 78, 97, 148), His creation (Job 12:8), works (1 Chronicles 16:19; Psalm 77:12; 143:5), wonders (Psalm 105:2; 119:27), honor (Psalm 145:5) & the days of old/history (Psalm 77:5-6).

Today, the study of creation/nature is considered science.  The English word science comes from the Latin word ‘scientia’ which means “to know”. This corresponds to דע ‘dah,’ from whence both ידע ‘yada’ and דעת ‘daat’ come, both of which mean knowledge.

In Hebrew, knowledge literally means the door of the eye, or to “see the door”.  Who is the Door?  The Messiah.

Joh 10:7  Then Jesus again said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you that I am the door of the sheep.

The shadows of the Word and His Creation are there to lead us to the Door/His Eye, that we might know Him intimately, as the little guy in His Eye, abiding under the SHADOW of His Wings (Psalm 17:8; 36:7-9; 63:7; 91:5; Deuteronomy 32:10-11).

When we seek His Face, who is Messiah (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15), we will find Him.

Jer 29:13  And you shall seek and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Notice that Messiah Jesus links seeking Him with knocking on a door.  Studying science is a form of that knocking, whether one knows it or not.


Mat 7:7  Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Mat 7:8  For each one that asks receives, and the one that seeks finds; and to the one knocking, it will be opened.

All the treasures of science (knowledge) are in Messiah:

Col 2:3  in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge.

Jesus is the Wisdom of God.

1Co 1:24  But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1Co 1:30  But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

The universe was created through Wisdom
Pro 3:19  The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

Jer 10:12  He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion.

Jer 51:15  He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.

The universe was created through the Word
Psa 33:6  By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
Heb 11:3  By faith we understand the ages to have been framed by the Word of God, so that the things seen should not come into being out of things that appear.
2Pe 3:5  For this is hidden from them by their willing it so, that heavens were of old, and earth by water, and through water, having subsisted by the Word of God,
Joh 1:1  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2  He was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3  All things came into being through Him, and without Him not even one thing came into being that has come into being.

The universe was created through Messiah Jesus who is the Word/Wisdom of God.

Col 1:15  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature:
Col 1:16  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him:
Col 1:17  And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.
Pro 16:4  The LORD hath made all things for himself: yea, even the wicked for the day of evil.

ALL things point to Him.  May He be glorified in all that we think, say and do.

2Co 10:5  Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

The word translated as obedience in 2 Corinthians 10:5 comes from the Greek word ὑπακοή ‘hupakoe,’ which corresponds to the Hebrew word ענוה ‘anavah.’  ענוה ‘anavah’ means to be humble, low, submissive, meek…to bow down before.

Php 2:10  that at the name of Jesus “every knee should bow,” of heavenly ones, and earthly ones, and ones under the earth,
Php 2:11  and “every tongue should confess” that Jesus Christ is “Lord,” to the glory of God the Father. Isa. 45:23

To confess is also to give thanks.

יהודה ‘yehudah’ (Jew – Romans 2:29) comes from the Hebrew root ידה ‘yadah’ which means to raise the hands in confession, giving thanks or praise.

1Jn 4:2  By this know the Spirit of God: every spirit which confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God.

The Gospel connection

Rom 10:10  For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses unto salvation.
Rom 10:11  For the Scripture says, “Everyone believing on Him will not be put to shame.” Isa. 28:16
Rom 10:12  For there is no difference both of Jew and of Greek, for the same Lord of all is rich toward all the ones calling on Him.
Rom 10:13  For everyone, “whoever may call on the name of the Lord will be saved.” Joel 2:32
Rom 10:14  How then may they call on One into whom they have not believed? And how may they believe One of whom they have not heard? And how may they hear without preaching?
Rom 10:15  And how may they preach if they are not sent? Even as it has been written, “How beautiful” “the feet of those preaching the gospel of peace, of those preaching the gospel of good things.” Isa. 52:7
Rom 10:16  But not all obeyed the gospel, for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our report?” Isa. 53:1
Rom 10:17  Then faith is of hearing, and hearing through the Word of God.
Isa 40:9  Go up for yourself on the high mountain, one bearing good news to Zion; lift up your voice with strength, one bearing good news to Jerusalem. Lift up, do not fear. Say to the cities of Judah, Behold! Your God!
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;

1Jn 4:15  Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God.

In Greek ‘confession’ comes from the word  ὁμολογέω ‘homologeō’ which literally means ‘joined to the Word.’

The Hebrew word הללויה ‘HalleluYah’, which means praise Yah, is a perfect depiction of this concept of lifting the hands in praise.   הללויה ‘halleluYah’ comes from the following root word:

The pictograph meaning of praise means to look toward the North Star.

It is interesting to note that in sign language, the way one says ‘hallelujah’ is very similar to this ancient Hebrew concept.  In sign language the flat hands come together, then circle around and change to X hands and then back again to flat hands raised in the air.

This is the end result:

This is the formation of the letter ה ‘heh.’

The letter ה ‘heh’ has the numerical value of 5 which is the number of God’s grace.  His grace was revealed through the outstretched arms of the Messiah on the cross.  The word HalleluYah is used 27 times (23 times in the TaNaKH and 4 times in the New Testament) in the Bible corresponding to the 27 bones in the human hand.  The is yet another connection to the meaning of praise being the raising up the hands.

Thanksgiving & Grace

Rev 7:12  Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

The Greek word translated as thanksgiving in Revelation 7:12 is εὐχαριστία ‘eucharistia’ which is used in the Septuagint to translate the Hebrew word חן ‘chen’ which means grace, but also a camp.

This is what grace looks like:
large-map-israel-wilderness-camp-after-leaving-egypt

As mentioned previously, הלל ‘hallel’ (praise) literally depicts one looking towards the north star. The constellation Cepheus (the enthroned king) is located directly above the North star in the night sky.

CEPHEUS. The king. In the Zodiac of Denderah Pe—ku—hor = this one cometh to rule. Cepheus is Greek from the Hebrew zemah = the Branch. Ethiopian name, Hyh = a king. The brightest star is Al Deramin = coming quickly. The next is Al Phirk = the Redeemer. The next, Al Rai’ = who bruises or breaks. (Jeremiah 31:1) {E.W. Bullinger – Companion Bible}

What constellations are located beneath Cepheus?  Ursa Major and Ursa Minor which represent the two sheepfolds of the Good Shepherd.

Joh 10:14  I am the Good Shepherd, and I know those that are Mine, and I am known by the ones that are Mine.
Joh 10:15  Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.
Joh 10:16  And I have other sheep which are not of this fold. I must also lead those, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock, one Shepherd.

Again, the Hebrew word HalleluYah is from הלל ‘hallel’ which is pictographically displayed by a man with two outstretched arms, holding the shepherd’s staff or it could be said the Shepherd with outstretched arms.

As Hallelujah is said to be the only word that man speaks that is the same in every language, it is only appropriate to share that the Shepherd with outstretched arms is what gathers and unifies mankind through the love of the Father.

There are multiple words in Hebrew for love, all linking back to the bosom.  The most common is אהב ‘ahav’ which has the meaning of 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.  Again linking the bosom, the family and the crucifixion.

Joh 3:16  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Joh 15:13  Greater love than this has no one, that anyone should lay down his soul for his friends.

From the root:

The Pictograph meaning of Love

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.  Embedded within all of creation is the Word/Jesus.  This teaches us of God’s nature as Creator and Redeemer, both of which were revealed through the Lord Jesus.

חן ‘chen’ = 58

Lev 17:11  For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it to you on the altar, to atone for your souls; for it is the blood which makes atonement for the soul.

The phrase ‘in the blood’ in Hebrew is בדם הוא ‘b’dam he’…literally in His blood.  This phrase has the numerical equivalent of 58.

in his blood

It is only through faith in the blood of the Lamb that we can find His grace.  It is through the blood of the Lamb of God that we enter into covenant with the Most High and are brought into the camp of the righteous.  The gates of the righteous are opened so that we can enter in through the door of the sheepfold who is the Messiah.

The name Noah = 58

noah

Noah comes from the word נוח ‘nuach’ which means rest.

nuach

נוח ‘nuach’ comes from the root:

nach

This is the picture that Psalm 23 paints.  The end of the exile where the Good Shepherd leads us to the still waters.  The pictograph meaning of this word also can mean the seed inside the walls as in His people in the camp.

The garden = 58

the garden 58

The kingdom, His rest, His נוח ‘nuach’ is the garden of Eden restored.

Gen 2:15  And Jehovah God took the man and put {נוח ‘nuach’} him into the Garden of Eden, to work it and to keep it.

It is interesting to note that the English word ‘garden’ comes from the Hebrew word גדר ‘gadar’ which means an enclosure, as in the enclosure for a sheepfold.  גדר ‘gadar’ comes from the root word דר ‘dar’ which is also the root word of דבר ‘davar’ (the Word).

Psa 95:6  O come, let us worship and bow down; let us kneel before Jehovah our Maker.
Psa 95:7  For He is our God; and we are the people of His pasture, and the sheep of His hand. Today, if you will hear His voice,
Psa 95:8  do not harden your heart as in the day of strife, as in the day of testing in the wilderness.
Psa 95:9  When your fathers tried Me, they tested Me and they saw My work.

Psa 118:26  Blessed is he who comes in the name of Jehovah; we blessed you from the house of Jehovah.
Psa 118:27  Jehovah is God, and He gives light to us. Tie the sacrifice with cords, to the horns of the altar.
Psa 118:28  You are my God, and I will exalt You; My God, I will thank You!
Psa 118:29  O give thanks to Jehovah, for He is good; for His mercy endures forever.

Giving Praise
Isa 12:1  And in that day you shall say, O Jehovah, I will thank You. Though You were angry with me, turn away Your anger and You shall comfort me.
Isa 12:2  Behold, God is my salvation! I will trust and not be afraid, for my strength and song is Jah Jehovah ; yea, He has become my salvation.

Isa 12:5  Sing to Jehovah, for He has done majestically; this is known in all the earth.
Isa 12:6  Cry and shout, O dweller of Zion! For great is the Holy One of Israel in your midst.

Psa 78:51  And he struck all the first-born in Egypt, the firstfruits of strength in the tents of Ham;
Psa 78:52  and He led His people forth like sheep; and He led them like a flock in the wilderness.
Psa 79:13  Then we Your people, and sheep of Your pasture, will give thanks to You forever; we will declare Your praise to all generations.

Literal sheep make the bleating sound of ‘baah’ which would be rendered in Hebrew as בה ‘bah.’  The ב ‘bet’ is the picture of a house and the ה ‘heh’ is a picture of a man with outstretched arms giving the meaning of revelation.  The House Revealed.


The first letter of the Scriptures is ב ‘bet’ and is enlarged in Torah scrolls.  This letter depicts a house, this is the primary purpose of Creation.  The Almighty desired to have a physical dwelling or “house”.  To build a house, a man takes a bride who establishes the home where children are born and raised.  This is the desire of our Creator.  To have a physical dwelling with His bride where many sons will be brought to glory (Hebrews 2:10).

He is our Creator and Redeemer.  These themes are seen in the sabbath (Exodus 20:11; Deuteronomy 5:15), which is rendered in Hebrew as שבת ‘shabbat.’  Pictographically, these letters mean to “return to the house of the covenant” or “return to the house through the cross”.

In Hebrew, בה ‘bah’ means a void or empty space which needs to be filled.  Such is the state of mankind.  There is a void within all of us which reveals we are all sheep gone astray (Isaiah 53:6).  This emptiness can only be filled by the Good Shepherd who fulfills all our needs (Psalm 23:1).

All of His creation is to praise/point to Him.

Psa 148:1  Praise Jehovah! Praise Jehovah from the heavens; praise Him in the heights.
Psa 148:2  Praise Him, all His angels; praise Him, all His hosts.
Psa 148:3  Praise Him, sun and moon; praise Him, all you stars of light.
Psa 148:4  Praise Him, O heavens of heavens; and O waters that are above the heavens.
Psa 148:5  Let them praise the name of Jehovah; for He commanded, and they were created.
Psa 148:6  And He established them forever and ever; He gave a decree that they not pass away.
Psa 148:7  Let the sea-monsters and all deeps praise Jehovah from the earth,
Psa 148:8  fire and hail, snow and smoke, stormy wind fulfilling His Word,
Psa 148:9  mountains and all hills, fruitful trees and all cedars,
Psa 148:10  beasts and all livestock, creeping things and birds of the wing,
Psa 148:11  kings of the earth and all people, princes and all judges of the earth,
Psa 148:12  young men and virgins too, old men and youths:
Psa 148:13  Let them praise the name of Jehovah; for His name alone is exalted; His glory is above the earth and heavens.
Psa 148:14  He also lifts up the horn of His people, the praise of all His saints, of the sons of Israel, a people near to Him, HalleluYah!

Heb 13:15  By Him (Jesus) therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name.

The Hebrew word for create is ברא ‘bara’ which pictographically points to Messiah Jesus, the Son of God.

He is the Word made flesh (John 1:1).

The Hebrew word for word is דבר ‘davar’ which literally means order.  Order is the definition of ‘cosmos’ {κόσμος ‘kosmos’} which is synonymous with the universe.  The universe is a “single spoken sentence”.  The cosmos/universe points directly the Word who is Messiah.

Recall that science means knowledge which in Hebrew literally means to “see the door”.

κόσμος ‘kosmos’ also has the meaning of the “circle of the earth” and was depicted as such by the ancients.

The Ancient and Medieval cosmos as depicted in Peter Apian’s Cosmographia.

A Related Word by Thayer’s/Strong’s Number: probably from the base of G2865

As mentioned before, the root word of דבר ‘davar’ (Word) is דר ‘dar’ which means a circle.

Traditionally, the cosmos has been used synonymously with the Greek word αἰών’aion’which means the world or universe.  The equivalent word to αἰών ‘aion’ in Hebrew is עלם ‘olam.’  Pictographically, this word means to see {ע ‘eye’} the shepherd who leads {לם shepherd leading to the waters}.  עלם ‘olam’ means the world/universe but also has the meaning of time as in eternity.  Today, scientists link space and time are together calling the universe “space-time”.  In Mandarin Chinese, cosmos and universe are both translated as 宇宙 (yǔzhòu), which literally translated means space-time (宇 yǔ, “space” and 宙 zhòu “time”).

In 1 Peter 3:3, κόσμος ‘kosmos’ is translated as ‘adorning’ speaking of the dress of a woman.  The Psalms alludes to this cosmos-dress assocation as well (Psalm 102:25-26).    This link between the cosmos and clothing is further seen in the Septuagint where κόσμος ‘kosmos’ is used to translate the Hebrew word עדי ‘adi’ which means adornment.  Etymologists also links this concept.

This is noted because space-time is likened to fabric (as in the adornment or dress of a woman).  Beginning with Einstein, and now those who teach string theory, it is shown that the universe is actually made up of a ‘fabric.’ The Scriptures also describe the Heavens as a garment/fabric.  {Psalm 102:25-26; Isaiah 34:4; 51:6; 64:1}

The translators of the Septuagint also used the word κόσμος ‘kosmos’ to translate the Hebrew word צבא ‘tseva’ which means hosts/stars.  The stars are connected to fabric through the goat hair tent.  The Hebrew word for star is כוכב ‘kokav’ from the root כב ‘kav’ which means the covering of the tent.

As seen above, κόσμος ‘kosmos’ is associated with the dress of women, in particular the adorning of their hair.  This connects to the tent which was made of goat hair.  The Hebrew origins of the word κόσμος ‘kosmos’ further links to hair by the concept of rain.

Isaac Mozeson traces κόσμος ‘kosmos’ back to the Hebrew word גשמי ‘geshmiy’ which means the physical or material world.  גשמי ‘geshmiy’ comes from גשם ‘geshem’ which means rain but is also translated as body (Daniel 4:33; 5:21; 7:11). Jeff Benner takes the word גשם ‘geshem’ back to the root שם ‘shem’ speaking of the sky from whence rain comes.  Recall that the heavens are likened unto fabric called “space-time”.

Further linking all these concepts together is the Hebrew word סער ‘se’ar’ which is commonly translated as hair but also has the meaning of raindrops as “hairs from heaven” (Deuteronomy 32:2).  Deuteronomy 32:2 links this rain {סער ‘se’ar’} to His Word.

Deu 32:2  My doctrine shall drop as the rain {סער ‘se’ar’}, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
Deu 32:3  Because I will publish the name
{שם ‘shem’} of the LORD: ascribe ye greatness unto our God.

The Hebrew word for the Milky Way (our galaxy) is מנזלה ‘manzelah’ from the root נזל ‘nazal’ which has the meaning of flowing waters.

The path of the sun through the constellations comes from this Hebrew word נזל ‘nazal.’  The Hebrew word for the constellations in Hebrew is מזרות  ‘mazzaroth’ which traces back to the root word נזר ‘nazar.’  נזר ‘nazar’ means the crown of the head and is translated as hair (Jeremiah 7:29).

What was on the crown {נזר ‘nazar’} of the High Priest?  The sacred name {שם ‘shem’} of God (Exodus 29:6; 39:30).  According to Josephus (Wars of the Jews – Book 5 Chapter 5 Section 7) the sacred name consisted of 4 vowels which are pronounced with our breath.  The Hebrew word for ‘name,’ is שם ‘shem’ which means breath/wind.  It is the root for the word שמים ‘shamayim’ which means heaven.

His name {שם ‘shem’} is His character which is His Word.

Rev 19:13  And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

The Word=The Torah.  The word תורה ‘torah’ comes from the root word תר ‘tar’ which means an image or outline.  The Torah/Word is the Image of God (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15).

All things in His Word are a shadow pointing back to Messiah (Hebrews 8:5; 9:24; 10:1; Colossians 2:16-17) who is the Image of God (Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:4; Colossians 1:15-16).

The Torah = the Entire Bible.  The Scriptures define the Prophets as the Torah (1 Corinthians 14:21) & the Psalms as Torah (John 10:34; 12:34; 15:25).  Messiah further elaborates His Word as everything that comes out of His mouth (Matthew 4:4).  This includes creation, as creation came forth from His Word (Psalm 33:6; Hebrews 11:3; John 1:1-3) who became flesh and dwelt among us (Colossians 1:12-17; Hebrews 1:1-3, 8-12).

It is interesting to note that the Greek word μορφή ‘morphe’ is used in the Septuagint to translate both the Hebrew words תואר ‘toar’ which means image, that comes from the same root תר, as תורה ‘torah.’  μορφή ‘morphe’ is also used to translate the Hebrew word צלם ‘tselem’ which means shadow.

Php 2:6  who subsisting in the form (μορφη ‘morphe’) of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God,

 

The Torah is an interesting word in that it comes from two roots.  One is תר ‘tar’ which means an image or outline, and the other is יר ‘yar’ which means to teach or pointing in the right direction.

Exo 24:12  And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

 

His Torah is His Teaching.    Both Law and Teach in the above verse (Exodus 24:12) come from the same root word יר ‘yar.’  This word also means rain which further links together the aforementioned associations between rain, heaven, the cosmos & His Word.

The rain is likened unto the Word.
Deu 32:2  My doctrine shall drop as the rain, my speech shall distil as the dew, as the small rain upon the tender herb, and as the showers upon the grass:
Isa 55:10  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
Isa 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Teaching is linked with rain.
1Ki 8:36  then You shall hear in Heaven, and shall forgive the sin of Your servants, and of Your people Israel, for You shall teach (ירה ‘yarah’) them the good way in which they shall go, and shall give rain on Your land which You have given to Your people for an inheritance.

Rain is an amazing shadow picture that points to Messiah Jesus.  As mentioned before one of the Hebrew words for rain is גשם ‘geshem.’

גשם ‘geshem’ comes from the root שם ‘shem’ which means breathe/character/name.  Again, Scripture equates His Name with His Word (Revelation 19:13).

גשם ‘geshem’ is translated as ‘body’ 5 times in the Scriptures (Daniel 4:33; 5:21; 7:11 & 3:27-28) which links to the Word being made flesh and dwelling among us.

Heb 10:5  For this reason, coming into the world, He says, “Sacrifice and offering You did not desire, but You prepared a body for Me.
Heb 10:6  You did not delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices concerning sins.”
Heb 10:7  “Then I said, Lo, I come, in the heading of the Book it was written concerning Me, to do Your will, O God.”
LXX-Psa. 39:7 -9; MT-Psa. 40:6 -8

Isaiah also links the Word with rain.

Isa 55:10  For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:
Isa 55:11  So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.

Snow is yet another incredible shadow picture of Messiah see:

Shadows of Messiah – Snow

The Messiah and His coming is likened unto rain:

Psa 72:1  <A Psalm for Solomon.> Give the king thy judgments, O God, and thy righteousness unto the king’s son.
Psa 72:2  He shall judge thy people with righteousness, and thy poor with judgment.
Psa 72:3  The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
Psa 72:4  He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
Psa 72:5  They shall fear thee as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
Psa 72:6  He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
Isa 45:8  Drop down, ye heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down righteousness: let the earth open, and let them bring forth salvation, and let righteousness spring up together; I the LORD have created it.
Hos 6:3  Then shall we know, if we follow on to know the LORD: his going forth is prepared as the morning; and he shall come unto us as the rain, as the latter and former rain unto the earth.

Coming in the clouds

Rev 1:7  “Behold, He comes with the clouds,” and “every eye will see Him, and the ones who pierced” Him, and all the tribes of the earth “will wail on account of Him.” Yes, Amen. Dan. 7:13; Zech. 12:10

Nah 1:3  Jehovah takes long to anger, and is great of power, and He does not by any means acquit the guilty. Jehovah has His way in the tempest and in the storm, and the clouds are the dust of His feet.

Psa 18:6  In my distress I called on Jehovah and I cried to my God; He heard my voice out of His temple, and my cry went before Him, into His ears.
Psa 18:7  Then the earth shook and quaked; and the foundations of the mountains quaked and were shaken, because it angered Him.
Psa 18:8  A smoke went up out of His nostrils, and fire devoured out of His mouth; coals were kindled from it.
Psa 18:9  He bowed the heavens also and came down, and darkness was under His feet;
Psa 18:10  and He rode on a cherub, and He flew; yea He soared on the wings of the wind;
Psa 18:11  He made darkness His covering, His pavilion all around Him, darkness of waters, thick clouds of the skies.
Psa 18:12  Out of the brightness before Him, His dark clouds passed through, hailstones and coals of fire.
Psa 18:13  Jehovah also thundered in the heavens; and the Highest gave forth His voice, hailstones and coals of fire.
Psa 18:14  Yea, He sent out His arrows and scattered them; and He shot out lightnings and confounded them.
Psa 18:15  Then the stream beds of waters were seen, and the foundations of the earth were bared at Your rebuke, O Jehovah, at the blast of the breath of Your nostrils.
Psa 68:32  Sing to God, kingdoms of the earth, praises to the Lord. Selah.
Psa 68:33  To Him who rides on the heavens of heavens of old; lo, He gives forth His voice, a mighty voice.
Psa 68:34  Give might to God over Israel; His majesty and His strength in the clouds.

Psa 77:14  You are the God who does wonders; You have revealed Your strength among the peoples.
Psa 77:15  You have redeemed Your people with Your arm, the sons of Jacob and Joseph. Selah.
Psa 77:16  The waters saw You, O God, the waters saw You; they were afraid; yea, the deeps trembled.
Psa 77:17  The clouds poured out water; the skies uttered a voice; and Your arrows flew out.
Psa 77:18  The voice of Your thunder in the tempest; lightnings lit up the world; the earth trembled and quaked!
Psa 77:19  Your way is in the sea; and Your path is in the great waters; and Your footsteps are not known.

Psa 97:2  Clouds and darkness are all around Him; righteousness and judgment are the foundation of His throne.
Psa 97:3  A fire goes before Him and burns up His enemies all around.
Psa 97:4  His lightnings lit up the world; the earth saw and trembled.
Psa 97:5  The mountains melted like wax before the face of Jehovah, before the face of Jehovah of the whole earth.
Psa 97:6  The heavens declare His righteousness and all the people see His glory.

The Scriptures admonish us to think upon that which is good, and righteous etc.

Php 4:8  For the rest, brothers, whatever is true, whatever honorable, whatever is right, whatever pure, whatever lovely, whatever of good report, if of any virtue, and if of any praise, think on these things.

What is good?  His creation

Gen 1:31  And God saw everything that He had made and behold, it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning the sixth day.

In the beginning, the Spirit hovered over the waters.  The word for hover here links to a bird overshadowing her nest.  The Almighty then said let there be light.  Hence, all of His creation is a shadow pointing back to Him.

The Scriptures speak of musing on His Word, His creation, works, honor, glory, miracles, & the days of old {history}.

His creation
Job 12:8 or speak to the earth, and it will teach you; and the fish of the sea will recount to you;

His works
1Ch 16:9 Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him; tell of all His marvelous works.
Psa 77:12 I will also meditate on all Your works and muse of Your doings.
Psa 143:5 I remember the days of old. I meditate on all Your works; I muse on the work of Your hands.

His wonders
Psa 105:2 Sing to Him; sing praises to Him; tell of all His wonders.
Psa 119:27 Make me understand the way of Your Precepts, and I will meditate on Your wonders.

His honor
Psa 145:5 I will muse on the glorious honor of Your majesty, and the things of Your wonderful works.

The creation teaches of God, and is connected to His Torah as the word סיח ‘siyach’ indicates

Psalm 19:1-6 creation, 19:7-9 Torah
Psa 19:1 To the chief musician. A Psalm of David. The heavens are recounting the glory of God, and the expanse proclaiming His handiwork.
Psa 19:2 Day by day they pour forth speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.
Psa 19:3 There is no speech, nor are there words where their voice is not heard.
Psa 19:4 Their measuring line has gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world; in them He has set up a dwelling-place for the sun,
Psa 19:5 and he comes forth like a bridegroom from his canopy. He rejoices like a hero to run a race;
Psa 19:6 his going forth from the end of the heavens, and his orbit to their ends; and nothing is hidden from his heat.
Psa 19:7 The Law of Jehovah is perfect, converting the soul. The Testimony of Jehovah is sure, making the simple wise.
Psa 19:8 The precepts of Jehovah are right, rejoicing the heart. The commands of Jehovah are pure, giving light to the eyes.
Psa 19:9 The fear of Jehovah is clean, enduring forever. The judgments of Jehovah are true, they are righteous altogether.

Science

SCI’ENCE, n. [L. scientia, from scio, to know.]

G1108
γνῶσις
gnōsis
Thayer Definition:
1) knowledge signifies in general intelligence, understanding

The English word science comes from the Latin word ‘scientia’ which means “to know”. This corresponds to דע ‘dah,’ from whence both ידע ‘yada’ and דעת ‘daat’ come, both of which mean knowledge.


To see the door…who is the Door?  Messiah

Joh 10:7  Then Jesus again said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you that I am the door of the sheep.

All that we see points to Him.  All that we see with our natural eyes, all that we see with our ‘spiritual eyes.’

The Eye is the doorway to His ‘soul’.  The shadows of the Word and His Creation are there to lead us to the door/His eye.  To know Him intimately, as the little guy in His Eye, abiding under the SHADOW of His Wings.

Psa 17:8  Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of thy wings,

Seek His Face

Jer 29:13  And you shall seek and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Notice that Messiah Jesus links seeking Him with knocking on a door.
Mat 7:7  Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Mat 7:8  For each one that asks receives, and the one that seeks finds; and to the one knocking, it will be opened.

Studying His creation to grow in Wisdom

Wis 7:14  For she {Wisdom} is a treasure unto men that never faileth: which they that use become the friends of God, being commended for the gifts that come from learning.
Wis 7:15  God hath granted me to speak as I would, and to conceive as is meet for the things that are given me: because it is he that leadeth unto wisdom, and directeth the wise.
Wis 7:16  For in his hand are both we and our words; all wisdom also, and knowledge of workmanship.
Wis 7:17  For he hath given me certain knowledge of the things that are, namely, to know how the world was made {Cosmology}, and the operation of the elements: {Chemistry}
Wis 7:18  The beginning, ending, and midst of the times {Mathematics}: the alterations of the turning of the sun {Physics}, and the change of seasons:
Wis 7:19  The circuits of years, and the positions of stars: {Astronomy}
Wis 7:20  The natures of living creatures {Biology}, and the furies of wild beasts: the violence of winds, and the reasonings of men {Psychology}: the diversities of plants and the virtues of roots {Geology}:
Wis 7:21  And all such things as are either secret or manifest, them I know.

Wis 7:22  For wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me: for in her is an understanding spirit holy, one only, manifold, subtil, lively, clear, undefiled, plain, not subject to hurt, loving the thing that is good quick, which cannot be letted, ready to do good,
Wis 7:23  Kind to man, steadfast, sure, free from care, having all power, overseeing all things, and going through all understanding, pure, and most subtil, spirits.
Wis 7:24  For wisdom is more moving than any motion: she passeth and goeth through all things by reason of her pureness.
Wis 7:25  For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure influence flowing from the glory of the Almighty: therefore can no defiled thing fall into her.
Wis 7:26  For she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of his goodness.
Wis 7:27  And being but one, she can do all things: and remaining in herself, she maketh all things new: and in all ages entering into holy souls, she maketh them friends of God, and prophets.
Wis 7:28  For God loveth none but him that dwelleth with wisdom.

Wisdom = Messiah

Studying His creation to see Messiah is on the ‘Anagogical’/’sod‘ level of Scriptural understanding.  The picture formed by the Hebrew word סוד ‘sod‘ is one of intimate friends conversing in a tent,  entering the ‘door’, and having a close relationship with the Most High, as the little guy in His Eye.

Seeking His Face, looking into His Eyes

Psa 27:8  My heart said to You, Seek my face; Your face, O Jehovah, I will seek.

Psa 70:4  Let all those who seek You rejoice, and be glad in You; and let those who love Your salvation (ישועה ‘yeshuah’ – source of the name Jesus) forever say, Let God be magnified.

Messiah Jesus is His “Face” or “Presence”

2Co 4:6  For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

Jay P. Green Literal Version (LITV)

Psa 42:5  O my soul, why are you cast down and moan within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet thank Him for the salvation of His presence.

Psa 44:3  For they did not inherit the land with their own sword; yea, their own arm did not save them. But it was Your right hand and Your arm and the light of Your face, because You favored them.
Psa 44:4  You are He, my King, O God; command deliverances
(ישועה ‘yeshuah’ – source of the name Jesus) for Jacob.
