Shadows of Messiah – Shadows & the 4th Dimension

Shadows of Messiah - Shadows & the 4th Dimension

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, speak of a 4th dimensional spirit realm.  In theory, 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 of God hovered over the waters (Genesis 1:2). The word for hover here (רחף ‘rachaph’) portrays a bird overshadowing it’s nest.  God is spoken of in this imagery throughout the Bible (Psalm 17:8; 61:4; 63:7; 91:1-4;  Matthew 23:37; Deuteronomy 32:11).

God then said let there be light (Genesis 1:3) which cast a ‘shadow’ of His image over the entire universe. Hence, all of His creation is a shadow pointing back to Him.

Some use the term 4th dimension in reference to time, others to the concept of another realm which man cannot experience while in our current three dimension state.  It is this aspect that this article will focus upon.

The Scriptures speak of 4 Dimensions

Eph 3:17  that through faith Christ may dwell in your hearts, having been rooted and founded in love,
Eph 3:18  that you may be given strength to grasp, with all the saints, what is the breadth and length and depth and height,
Eph 3:19  and to know the surpassing knowledge and love of Christ, that you may be filled to all the fullness of God.

1) breadth
2) length
3) depth
4) height

Scripture links heaven or the ‘4th dimension’ to ‘height.’  The word for ‘height’ in Ephesians 3:18 is ὕψος ‘hupsos.’

Luk 1:78  through the tender heart of mercy of our God, in which the Dayspring from on high {ὕψος ‘hupsos’} will visit us,
Luk 24:49  And, behold, I send forth the promise of My Father on you. But you sit in the city of Jerusalem until you are clothed with power from on high {ὕψος ‘hupsos’}.

Eph 4:8  Because of this, He says, “Having gone up on high
{ὕψος ‘hupsos’}, He led captivity captive,” and gave “gifts to men.” Psa. 68:18
Eph 4:9  But that He went up, what is it except that He also first came down into the lower parts of the earth?
Eph 4:10  He that came down is the same who also went up above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.

Job 22:12  Is not God high (KJV ‘height’) in Heaven? Also behold the leading stars, for they are high.

The word translated as ‘high/height’ comes from the Hebrew word גובה ‘gobah’ which means something lifted up from the root גב ‘gav’ which has the literal meaning of the back, as a back arched or lifted up when digging.

This is interesting as it was the ‘back’ of God that was shown to Moses when he saw His Glory.

Exo 33:18  And he said, I pray, let me see Your glory.
Exo 33:19  And He said, I will cause all My goodness to pass before your face. And I will call out the name of Jehovah before your face. And I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy.
Exo 33:20  And He said, You are not able to see My face; for no man can see Me and live.
Exo 33:21  And Jehovah said, Behold, a place by Me! And you shall stand on a rock.
Exo 33:22  And as My glory is passing it will be that I will put you in a cleft of the rock; and I will cover My hand over you during My passing.
Exo 33:23  And I will remove My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face cannot be seen.

The human backbone consists of 26 bones which corresponds to the numerical value of the word יהוה ‘Yahweh,’ the name of God.  The Hebrew word for backbone, עצה ‘etzah,’ comes from the Hebrew word for tree, עץ ‘etz.’  This is interesting as the Tree of Life in the midst of the Garden of Eden is a shadow picture or foreshadowing of the LORD Jesus (Genesis 3:22; John 11:26; 15:1-13).  Not surprisingly, the word for shadow in Hebrew, צל ‘tsel,’ refers to the shadow cast by the branches of a tree.  The concept of under the shadow of God’s Wings is seen in not only the wings of a bird but also the branches of a tree.

The other word in Hebrew translated as ‘height’ and referring to the 4th dimension is רם ‘rum’ seen in the following verses:

Psa 102:19  For He has looked down from the height of His sanctuary; Jehovah looked from Heaven to the earth,


Pro 25:3  The heavens for height, and the earth for depth, but the heart of kings is unsearchable.

The word רם ‘rum’ pictographically displays the ר ‘resh’ which means the head and מ ‘mem’ which means waters…The 4th dimension/heaven is described in the Scriptures as the ‘waters.’

The Waters above the Firmament

Gen 1:6  And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters.
Gen 1:7  And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so.
Gen 1:8  And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

The waters below the firmament (heaven, sky, ‘outer space’) were called seas, but the waters above the firmament were not named.  In Hebrew, waters are equated with the unknown.


The waters above the firmament/heavens is where God dwells.

Psa 148:4  Praise Him, O heavens of heavens; and O waters that are above the heavens.
Keil & Delitzsch commentary
The Scriptures, from the first page to the last, acknowledge the existence of celestial waters, to which the rain-waters stand in the relation as it were of a finger-post pointing upwards (see Gen_1:7). All these beings belonging to the superterrestrial world are to praise the Name of Jahve, for He, the God of Israel, it is by whose fiat (צִוָּה, like אָמַר in Psa_33:9)
Notice that Keil & Delitszch connect these waters to the word צוה ‘tsevah’ which means command or commandment, precept, law, or ordinance in Hebrew.

Psa 33:6  Through the Word of Jehovah the heavens were made; and all their host were made by the breath of His mouth.
Psa 33:7  The waters of the sea were gathered like a heap, setting the depths in storehouses.
Psa 33:8  Let all the earth fear Jehovah; let all those living in the world stand in awe of Him.
Psa 33:9  For He spoke, and it came into being; He commanded
{צוה ‘tsevah’}, and it stood fast.

Psa 104:3  who lays beams in the waters of His upper rooms; setting thick clouds as His chariots; walking on the wings of the wind.
Albert Barnes commentary
Psa 104:3
Who layeth the beams of his chambers in the waters – The word here rendered “layeth” – from קרה  qârâh – means properly to meet; then, in Hiphil, to cause to meet, or to fit into each other, as beams or joists do in a dwelling. It is a word which would be properly applied to the construction of a house, and to the right adjustment of the different materials employed in building it. The word rendered “beams” – עליה  ‛ălı̂yâh – means “an upper chamber, a loft,” such as rises, in Oriental houses, above the flat roof; in the New Testament, the ὑπερῷον  huperōon, rendered “upper room,” Act_1:13; Act_9:37, Act_9:39; Act_20:8. It refers here to the chamber – the exalted abode of God – as if raised above all other edifices, or above the world. The word “waters” here refers to the description of the creation in Gen_1:6-7 – the waters “above the firmament,” and the waters “below the firmament.” The allusion here is to the waters above the firmament; and the meaning is, that God had constructed the place of his own abode – the room where he dwelt – in those waters; that is, in the most exalted place in the universe. It does not mean that he made it of the waters, but that his home – his dwelling-place – was in or above those waters, as if he had built his dwelling not on solid earth or rock, but in the waters, giving stability to that which seems to have no stability, and making the very waters a foundation for the structure of his abode.

His throne
Rev 4:2  And at once I became in spirit. And, behold, a throne was set in Heaven, and One sitting on the throne.
Rev 4:3  And the One sitting was in appearance like a jasper stone, and a sardius; and a rainbow was around the throne, in appearance like an emerald.

His Glory and the Rainbow

Beginning with water, resonating the right sound will produce all the colors of the light spectrum.  The Glory of the LORD is connected with sound/music.

Luk 2:32  a Light for revelation to the nations, and the Glory (Greek – δόξα ‘doxa’ = praise – John 9:24; 12:43; 1 Peter 4:11) of Your people Israel.

Christ is His Glory…His Light

Rev 21:23  And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
Eze 43:2  And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. And His voice was like the voice of many waters. And the earth shone from His glory.

Mat 5:34  But I say to you, Do not swear at all, neither by Heaven, because it is God’s throne; Isa. 66:1
Mat 5:35  nor by the earth, because it is the footstool of His feet; nor by Jerusalem, because it is the city of the great King. Isa. 66:1; Psa. 48:2

The waters or the realm of the unknown is above or beyond the firmament.  The firmament in Hebrew is from the word רקיע ‘raqiyah’ which has the meaning of a metal hammered out into a flat piece. The Scriptures liken this to a mirror/looking glass (Job 37:18).

The Hebrew word for expanse/firmament is:

Another interesting connection to the waters above is seen in Genesis 1:6 and the word for divide.

Gen 1:6  And God said, Let an expanse be in the midst of the waters, and let it be dividing between the waters and the waters.

The word here for dividing is בדל ‘badal’:


This comes from the root בד ‘bad’:



Here it is seen that the dividing/separating of the waters shows that there is a separation from those who can enter into the tent and those who can’t.  Entrance into God’s tent is only through the door (John 14:6).  Christ is that door (John 10:7).  In Matthew 7:21-27, Messiah connects this concept of the door to the kingdom to the flood in Noah’s day, further connecting the dividing of the waters to the Tabernacle in Heaven.

Keil & Delitszch commentary on Genesis 1:6-8

The Second Day. – When the light had been separated from the darkness, and day and night had been created, there followed upon a second fiat of the Creator, the division of the chaotic mass of waters through the formation of the firmament, which was placed as a wall of separation (מַבְדִּיל) in the midst of the waters, and divided them into upper and lower waters. רָקִיעַ .s, from רָקַע to stretch, spread out, then beat or tread out, means expansum, the spreading out of the air, which surrounds the earth as an atmosphere. According to optical appearance, it is described as a carpet spread out above the earth (Psa_54:2), a curtain (Isa_40:22), a transparent work of sapphire (Exo_24:10), or a molten looking-glass (Job_37:18);

Notice that the firmament is likened to a curtain/veil.  This imagery is seen at the doors of the Tabernacle/Temple.  The firmament is also likened to a mirror.  This is what the brazen lavers, that stood outside of the Tabernacle, were made of (Exodus 38:8).

Job 37:18  Can you beat out (רקע ‘raqa’) the expanse (שחק ‘shachaq’ – sky/clouds) with Him, hard like a cast mirror? 

The Hebrew word for mirror/looking glass is ראי ‘re`iy’ which comes from the root רא ‘ra’which means to see.  This is the same word for ‘vision’ and ‘appearance’ in Hebrew when God appears to mankind.

1Co 13:12  For now we see through a mirror {ἔσοπτρονesoptron’} in dimness, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will fully know even as I also was fully known. 

G2072

1 Corinthians 13 is the ‘Love Chapter.’  It is amazing that the Love of God is associated with the 4th Dimension…

John 3:16 makes clear that the love of God is made manifest on the cross.

1Jn 3:16  Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
Joh 15:13  Greater love than this has no one, that anyone should lay down his soul for his friends.

Joh 10:15  Even as the Father knows Me, I also know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep.

Messiah lays down His life for His sheep.  In this portion of Scripture, Messiah likens Himself to the ‘door’.  Through His sacrifice, Christ has opened up the door to eternity.  He has pierced the veil that delivers us from death and allows us to enter in the eternal Kingdom of Light.  He ‘pierced the fabric’ of space-time…

What is the Hebrew word for Love?


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.

Tesseract – 4 dimensional hyper cube

Artists and writers have used the geometry of the tesseract to produce surrealistic effects, for instance in Salvador Dalí’s Crucifixion (Corpus Hypercubus)

Salvado Dali’s Crucifixion (Corpus  Hypercubus)

Interestingly, Dali also linked Messiah to the dodecahedron.  In Salvador Dalí’s painting The Sacrament of the Last Supper (1955), the room is a hollow dodecahedron.  Scientists have proclaimed that the shape of the universe is a dodecahedron.

Dodecahedron
“And as each group of 2-dimensional circles yields 2-dimensional polygons which in turn yield 3-dimensional polyhedra, so each group of 3-dimensional spheres yields 4-dimensional polyhedra, also known as Polytopes. The Fourth dimension is an angle perpendicular to the other three, X, Y, and Z. Often Time is considered to be this angle. Another possible interpretation is a spatial one, representable in terms of Scale. 4-dimensional polyhedra can be rather complex when realized in 3-dimensional space due to the perceptual constraints of our 3d world. The famous example is the Hypercube, which might be rendered as a smaller cube within a larger, or a cube projecting cubes out of each of its faces, and two out of the bottom, like a Cross.”



The above concept is very interesting to consider.  The cross linking heaven and earth, past and present…Revelation 5 may be alluding to this.

Rev 5:3  And no one in Heaven was able to open the scroll nor to see it, neither on the earth, nor underneath the earth.
Rev 5:4  And I wept much, because no one worthy was found to open and to read the scroll, nor to see it.
Rev 5:5  And one of the elders said to me, Do not weep. Behold, the Lion being of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, overcame so as to open the scroll, and to loose its seven seals.
Rev 5:6  And I saw, and behold, in the midst of the throne, and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, was a Lamb standing, as having been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, having been sent out into all the earth.
Rev 5:7  And He came and took the scroll out of the right hand of Him sitting on the throne.
Rev 5:8  And when He took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having harps, and golden bowls full of incenses, which are the prayers of the saints.
Rev 5:9  And they sing a new song, saying, Worthy are You to receive the scroll, and to open its seals, because You were slain, and by Your blood purchased us to God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation,
Rev 5:10  and made us kings and priests to our God; and we shall reign over the earth.

Notice that verse 3 says no one in heaven, on earth, or below earth could open the scroll…could it be that at that point Messiah was between heaven and earth on the cross?  Revelation 13:8 says that Christ was slain before the foundation of the world, ie from eternity.

Rev 13:8  And all those dwelling in the earth will worship it, those of whom the names had not been written in the Book of Life of the Lamb having been slain from the foundation of the world.

The Veil and His Flesh

Heb 10:19  Therefore, brothers, having confidence for the entering of the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus,
Heb 10:20  which He consecrated for us, a new and living way through the veil; that is, His flesh;

The context of this portion of Scripture is about the New Covenant cut at Calvary.

Heb 10:16  “This is the covenant which I will covenant to them after those days, says the Lord: Giving My Laws on their hearts, and I will write them on their minds;”

Heb 10:17  also He adds, “I will not at all still remember their sins” and their lawlessnesses. MT-Jer. 31:33, 34

Heb 10:18  But where remission of these is, there is no longer offering concerning sins.
Heb 10:19  Therefore, brothers, having confidence for the entering of the Holy of Holies by the blood of Jesus,

The veil that hung in the Tabernacle displays this very concept:

Amazingly, the crucifixion is linked to a veil as well.

The word מספחה ‘mispacha,’ which means a veil in Hebrew, comes from the root ספח ‘saphach’ which is the origin of the word ‘crucifixion.’  Further linking this all together is the connection between love, the shadow of His wings/apple of His Eye and Heaven.

The Bosom, the Family and Gathering at the Cross

The words for father and mother in Hebrew are associated with love.  אם ’em’ (mother) is the source of the Latin ‘amare,’ the French ‘amitie’ and the English ‘amity’ which mean love.  One of the Hebrew words for love is דד ‘dud/dad’ which means both love and breasts/bosom.  This word דד ‘dud/dad’ is the source of the English word ‘dad.’  Interestingly, the English word ‘baby’ comes from the Hebrew word בבה ‘baba’ which is related to the word אבוב ‘aboob’ the root of which is אב ‘av’ which means father but also means a pipe, as in the breast of the mother whose milk flows to give sustenance to the baby.  בבה ‘baba’ in Hebrew means the pupil, the apple of one’s eyes.  As any parent has held their baby in their arms against their bosom they recognize this is the epitome of love and intimate relationship (apple of the eye/little guy in the eye).

The Hebrew word for family comes from משפחה ‘mispocha’ the same root as שפח ‘shapach’.  שפח ‘shaphach’ is the origin of the word crucifixion which gathers all the family of the earth.  The bosom, which represents the love of the family also links to the Messiah.

The English word for ‘dad’ comes from the Hebrew word דד ‘dad’ which means beloved, literally the bosom.  The Father revealed what true love is when He gave His only begotten Son, who came from His bosom (John 1:18), as an atonement for the sins of mankind.  The most common Hebrew word for love אהבה ‘ahavah,’ literally means to give.

Messiah came from the bosom of the Father.

Joh 1:18  No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, that One declares Him.

He gathers and then carries in His bosom His people, linking to the crucifixion.  It is through the work of Messiah on the cross that mankind is brought into His family.

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;
Psa 89:50  Remember, O Lord, the reproach of Your servants, my bearing in my bosom the insults of the many peoples
Psa 89:51  with which Your enemies have cursed, O Jehovah; with which they have cursed the footsteps of Your anointed.
Eph 2:8  For by grace you are saved, through faith, and this not of yourselves; it is the gift (gift = love = bosom) of God;
Eph 2:9  not of works, that not anyone should boast;
Eph 2:10  for we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God before prepared that we should walk in them.
Eph 2:11  Because of this, remember that you, the nations, were then in the flesh (those having been called Uncircumcision by those having been called Circumcision in the flesh made by hands)
Eph 2:12  that at that time you were without Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers of the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world.
Eph 2:13  But now, in Christ Jesus you who then were afar off, came to be near by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14  For He is our peace, He making us both one, and breaking down the middle wall of partition,
Eph 2:15  in His flesh causing to cease the enmity, the Law of the commandments in decrees, that He might in Himself create the two into one new man, making peace,
Eph 2:16  and might reconcile both in one body to God through the cross, slaying the enmity in Himself.
Eph 2:17  And coming, He proclaimed “peace to you, the ones afar off, and to the ones near.” Isa. 57:19
Eph 2:18  For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.
Eph 2:19  So, then, you are no longer strangers and tenants, but you are fellow citizens of the saints and of the family of God,
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.

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.

אב ‘av’ (father) literally pictures a pole, as in the support of a tent.  In English, the word ‘pole’ comes from the Old English ‘pal’ which traces back to the Latin ‘palus,’ which literally means a stake.  The English word ‘pale’ derives from this word.  ‘Pale’ means to fix or fasten and is related to the English word ‘pact.’  A pact is an agreement, treaty, compact which comes from the Latin word ‘pactum’ which means a contract/covenant.  A covenant through a pole/stake…  Here we see אב ‘av,’ the first word of the Hebrew alphabet pointing to the most important event in human history,  the crucifixion of Christ Jesus, and the New Covenant (Isaiah 42:6; Matthew 26:28)  in His blood which restores mankind back to the Father.

There are two more words in Hebrew which are translated as bosom.  The first is חצן ‘chatsan’ which comes from חץ ‘chets’ which literally means a tent wall, as in an enclosing.  This imagery is seen in the above word, אהב ‘ahav.’

Through the sacrifice of Messiah, the gift of God’s love, we become His house.

Eph 2:4  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,
Eph 2:5  Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)
Eph 2:6  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
Eph 2:7  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.
Eph 2:8  For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Eph 2:9  Not of works, lest any man should boast.
Eph 2:10  For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Eph 2:11  Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh, who are called Uncircumcision by that which is called the Circumcision in the flesh made by hands;
Eph 2:12  That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:
Eph 2:13  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ.
Eph 2:14  For he is our peace, who hath made both one, and hath broken down the middle wall of partition between us;
Eph 2:15  Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
Eph 2:16  And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
Eph 2:17  And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
Eph 2:18  For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father.
Eph 2:19  Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
Eph 2:20  And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph 2:21  In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph 2:22  In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.

The word צלחת ‘tsalachat’ is also translated as bosom but also means a bowl, as in the bowls/pans used in the Tabernacle.  צלחת ‘tsalachat’ comes from צלח ‘tsalach’ which means to advance forward, as in an oxen moving towards its mark.  צלח ‘tsalach’ traces back further to צל ‘tsel’ which has the meaning of a bowl but also means a shadow (as in the covering that a bowl makes when held upside down)…as under the shadow of His wings, the little guy in His Eye.

Believers ‘hide’ under the shadow of His wings (Psalm 17:8).  Another word for bosom in Hebrew is חב ‘chav’ which also means to hide, the ‘secret place’ of the Most High.

Psa 91:1  He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow {צל ‘tsel’ } of the Almighty.
chav hide love bosom

This cup, bosom, love connection links to the Hebrew word for bowl which is מקנית ‘maqniyt’ which literally means the “shape of a bowl that holds liquids like a breast that holds milk”.  נק ‘naq,’ the root of this word, literally means a “child drawn in” as in the bringing in and holding of an infant to the breast to suckle, the picture of innocency.  One of the Hebrew words for innocence is נקי ‘naqi’ which comes from this root word as well.

Another Hebrew word which has the meaning of innocence is חף ‘chaph’ which pictures chicks abiding under the shadow of the wings of their mother.  Again, the “little guy in the eye” imagery is seen.

God is described in this same imagery.

Deu 32:10 He found him in a desert land, and in the waste, a howling wilderness. He encircled him and cared for him; He guarded him as the pupil of His eye.
Mat 23:37  Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the one killing the prophets and stoning those sent to her. How often I desired to gather your children in the way a bird gathers her chicks under her wings! And you did not desire it.
רחף ‘rachaph’ comes from the root:

Messiah is the door that we enter in order to abide in His ‘House’ (John10:7) it is through Him that we are covered/hidden.  This is the definition of who the Israel of God is (Galatians 6:16)…His hidden ones (Psalm 83:3).  It is by the covenant cut in Messiah (Daniel 9:26; Isaiah 42:6) by His sacrifice on the tree that we are covered (1 John 1:7).  It is through His Outstretched Arms (wings) that Messiah is calling us (John 3:14; 12:32) and gathering us together as a Shepherd does His flock (John 10:14-16).  This is how we enter the Door into the House, this is how we are declared innocent and pure in His eyes.  This is how we become His friends and enter into His tents in an intimate relationship.

חף ‘chaph’ is the root for the word חופה ‘chuppah’ which is speaking of a wedding canopy.

Abiding under the shadow of His wings and being in ‘marriage covenant’ with Him through Messiah is one and the same thing.

The canopy as a covering is connected with being the ‘little guy in His eye

Zec 2:8  For so says Jehovah of Hosts: He has sent Me after glory, to the nations who plundered you; for he who touches you touches the pupil of His eye.
נק ‘naq’ is also the source of the word נקיק ‘naqiyq’ which means a cleft in the rocks, as in the cleavage of the breast {נקק ‘naqaq’}.  The imagery of the cleft of the rock is used in the Scriptures as depicting an intimate relationship with the Almighty (Exodus 33:18-23).

Recall that the word in Hebrew for pupil is בבה ‘baba’ which is the source of the English word ‘baby.’  Interestingly, the English word ‘shade’ comes from the Hebrew word שד ‘shad’ which means the breast/bosom.  שד ‘shad’ is the root of the word שדי ‘shaddai’ which is translated as ‘the Almighty.’  שד ‘shad’ pictographically means to return to the door, which Scripture defines as Messiah.

Joh 10:7  Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.


The word דד ‘dud/dad’ (love) means two doors or two breasts.

The letter ד ‘dalet’ is the picture of a door, or flap of a tent which opens the way inside.  The tabernacle consisted of two doors/veils which דד displays.  What is the veil of the Tabernacle a picture of?  The body/flesh of Messiah.

Heb 10:20  which He consecrated for us, a new and living way through the veil; that is, His flesh;
The above portion of Scripture is in context of the New Covenant which was cut at Calvary where Messiah gathered mankind into His bosom (Isaiah 40:11; Psalm 89:50).

Another word for love is חשק ‘chashaq’ which has the meaning of being knit together in love. חשק  ‘chashaq’ comes from the root word חש ‘chash’ which points to the bosom, the breastplate in Hebrew is חשן ‘choshen.’  חשק  ‘chashaq’ is the word used in reference to the joining together of the Tabernacle, which is a shadow picture of the body of Messiah.  It is no surprise that this joining together involved nails, just as in the nails used in the crucifixion (Exodus 38:17, 28; Deuteronomy 7:7; Colossians 2:2, 19; Ephesians 4:15-16).

חשק ‘chashaq’ also can be traced back to the word חק ‘choq.’  חק ‘choq’ is the root of חקק ‘chaqaq’ and חקה ‘chuqah’ which means to inscribe a decree or custom.  It is no surprise then that the New Covenant, cut at Calvary is associated with the inscribing of the Word on our hearts which is contained in our bosoms (Jeremiah 31:31).

The feasts/appointed times, at which the people of God gathered, are linked to this word חק ‘choq’ and are referred to as חוקים ‘chuqqim’ numerous times in the Word.  Interestingly,  the English word ‘hug’ traces back to the Hebrew word חג ‘chag’ which is translated as feast but literally means to encircle as in the embrace of two people in a hug.

The feasts revolved around the gathering together of the people to the Tabernacle or tent.  The Tabernacle itself was called the אהל מועד ‘ohel mo’ed’ which means tent of meeting/gathering or tabernacle of congregation.  מועד ‘moed’ comes from עד ‘ad’ which means to see the door, as in meeting as the door of the Tabernacle.  Again, the door is Christ (John 10:7).

To sum up, the word דוד ‘dod’ means love.  דד ‘Dod’ literally means the breasts.  The letter ‘dalet’ is the picture of a door, or flap of a tent which opens the way inside.  The tabernacle consisted of two doors/veils which דד displays.  The veil of the Tabernacle was a picture of the body/flesh of Christ.

Heb 10:20  which He consecrated for us, a new and living way through the veil; that is, His flesh;

Through His sacrifice, Christ tore the veil between God and man, between heaven and earth and gathers us back into the bosom of the LORD (Isaiah 40:11; Psalm 89:50).

11 Dimensions

String Theorists postulate that there are in fact 11 dimensions.

String theory is a part of a larger synthesis called M-Theory.  Originally the letter M in M-theory was taken from membrane, a construct designed to generalize the strings of string theory.
In M-Theory strings with closed loops free to go from one dimension to another. Interestingly, M-Theory originally spoke of 10 dimensions.  This was later expanded to 11 dimensions based on the necessary consolidation of five separate string theories to produce an 11th unifying dimension and a consistent string theory.
This is fascinating in that the Tabernacle had 11 curtains…
Exo 26:7  And you shall make curtains of goats’ hair for a tent over the tabernacle; you shall make eleven curtains.
The open ended loops (like floss) are tied down to our physical dimension.  These strings can be ‘stretched out’ and are called a membrane.  This world is called a ‘brane’ world, from the Latin word ‘membrana.’

Membrana, Membranae
N – 1 1 – F –
membrane; skin; parchment;

‘Membrana’ has the meaning of thin skin, a film, a membrane or parchment.  The skin of a snake or the skin prepared to write on a parchment like a scroll displays the meaning of this word.

2Ti 4:13  When you come, bring the cloak which I left in Troas with Carpus, and the books, especially the parchments (μεμβράνα ‘membrana’).

Isa 42:5  So says Jehovah God, creating the heavens and stretching them out; spreading out the earth and its offspring, giving breath to the people on it, and spirit to those walking in it.

Isa 45:12  I have made the earth, and created man on it. I stretched out the heavens with My hands; and I have set all their host in order.
Isa 48:13  My hand surely founded earth, and My right hand has stretched out the heavens; I called to them, they stood up together.

There is an amazing connection here between the Tabernacle, 11 dimensions and the Word.

The Tabernacle consisted of 11 curtains as mentioned above in Exodus 26:7.  These curtains consisted of ‘fine twined linen.’  In Hebrew this is  יריעת שׁשׁ משׁזר ‘yriyot sheysh mashzar’ (Exodus 36:8).  Literally this means curtain of 6 cords/threads.  What is 11×6? 66…corresponding to the 66 books in the Bible!

Here we see that the 11 dimensions correspond to a parchment or scroll. This is pointing to the Word. String theorists state that all matter in the universe consists of vibrating string. Scripture agrees with this.  Here then in the Tabernacle of God is a veiled depiction of the universe.

Psa 50:1  A Psalm of Asaph God, Jehovah God, has spoken, and calls to the earth from the rising of the sun to its going in.
Targum
Psalm 50:1  A hymn composed by Asaph. Mighty is God; the Lord spoke at the Creation a song; and he carved out[62] the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
Isa 12:2  Behold, God is my salvation {ישׁוּעה ‘yeshû‛âh’ – source of the name Jesus}; I will trust, and not be afraid: for Jah Jehovah is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation {ישׁוּעה ‘yeshû‛âh’}.
Isa 12:3  Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation {
ישׁוּעה ‘yeshû‛âh’ – source of the name Jesus}.
Notice the connection to God being our song and the living waters.

This phrase, ‘Yahweh is my strength and song and has become my Yeshuah’ is found in two other Scriptures.  Exodus 15:2 speaking of the redemption after the 1st Passover and in Psalm 118:14 which is a Psalm connecting to the ‘2nd Passover’ in which Christ Jesus offered Himself as a sacrifice for our atonement.

The Hebrew word for Song is שיר ‘shiyr’:


The root of this word, שר means ‘strings’:

Strings:
Elegant Universe pg 14
“Matter is composed of atoms, which in turn are made from quarks and electrons.  According to string theory, all such particles are actually tiny loops of vibrating string.”  {Elegant Universe – Brian Greene pg 14}
“String theory proclaims, for instance, that the observed particle properties, are a reflection of the various ways in which a string can vibrate.  Just as the strings on a violin or on a piano have resonant frequencies at which they prefer to vibrate – patterns that our ears sense as various musical notes and their higher harmonics – the same holds true for the loops of string theory….each of the preferred patterns of vibration of a string in string theory appears as a particle whose mass and force changes are determined by the string’s oscillatory pattern.”  {Elegant Universe pg 15}
Elegant Universe pg 16
The Aramaic Targum of Psalm 50 speaks of the Lord creating the universe through a song.  The Aramaic Targum was an ancient translation of the Bible based upon ancient thought and interpretation of the Word.
Psalm 50:1  A hymn composed by Asaph. Mighty is God; the Lord spoke at the Creation a song; and he carved out[62] the earth from the rising of the sun to its setting.
The Hebrew of Psalm 50:1 states:
Psa 50:1 A Psalm of Asaph God, Jehovah God, has spoken, and calls to the earth from the rising of the sun to its going in.

The word translated as ‘spoken’ is the Hebrew word דבר ‘davar’ which is traditionally translated as ‘word’. Hence, the ancients understood the Word (דבר ‘davar’) as being a song. This is seen in Scriptures where God  is spoken of as our strength and our song (Exodus 15:1; Psalm 118:14; Isaiah 12:2). Notice in those verses that it is speaking of the LORD becoming our salvation (ישעוה ‘yeshuah’). The Word of God  is seen as the physical manifestation of the LORD on the earth.  The Psalms speak of the Word being a song (Psalm 119:54; 138:5; 71:22), Paul also speaks of this concept in Colossians 3:16. The Glory of God  (who is Messiah – Hebrews 1:3; 2 Corinthians 4:6; Revelation 21:23; 1:15; Ezekiel 43:2-7) is associated with music/praise (Luke 2:32; 2 Chronicles 5:11-14; Psalm 57:8; 108:1-3).

In short, all of creation comes forth from music.  Just as the Holy Scriptures spoke of thousands of years ago.
