"In the Beginning"* (B re'shîth) Genesis & Revelation - Download PDF Article

Mankind (adam) are the only beings, in our seen world, that have the ability to ponder their own existence, the existence of their physical universe, the existence of the unseen, metaphysical (spiritual) universe and the reality of their own death. Not only do we ask the questions of how and why but we also seek Him who is the Creator, our Father, the giver of chay (khah'- ee = life) that is age-abiding; the giver of Paradise, of love, of joy, of peace, of everlasting bliss; the giver of a communion with one and all, which is sacred and pure. Our Creator answered our questions in the first three chapters of Genesis and the last three chapters of Revelation.   These six chapters are the foundation upon which all are built, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the never ending end. The never ending end is the last three chapters of Revelation whereby we leave our seen universe and enter into the unseen age-abiding universe, which has always been our longing, our true home. In the first three chapters of Genesis we become enlightened as to who is the Creator, how old are the planets and "what was weak man, that thou shouldst make mention of him? or the son of the earthborn, that thou shouldst set him in charge?  That thou shouldst make him little less than Elohim, with glory and honor, shouldst crown him? Shouldst give him dominion over the works of thy hands,––All things, shouldst have put under his feet: Sheep and oxen, all of them,––yea even the beasts of the field; The bird of the heavens, and the fishes of the sea,–– the passer–by on the paths of the seas? O Yahweh, our Lord! How majestic is thy Name, in all the earth" (Ps. 8:4-9)? We become enlightened to life, to death, to sin, to an adversary, to a Savior and to the way of the Tree of Life. The last three chapters of Revelation bring us absolute hope, joy and peace if we are workers of righteousness or they bring upon us the wrath of the Creator if we are workers of iniquity.  The first three chapters of Genesis and the last three chapters of Revelation show us the Tree of Life; the unseen city that; "…hath no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they should shine therein; for, the glory of Yahweh, illumined it, and, the lamp thereof, was the Lamb" (Rev. 21:23); where "…death, shall be no more, and grief and outcry and pain shall be no more" (Rev. 21:4); where we shall see His face, and, His name, shall be upon our foreheads (Rev. 22:4); where the second death has no authority over us (Rev. 20:6)!

Yahweh communicated to us in the Hebrew language. His words are true while our translation of His words into the English language might not necessarily be true. Our English translation of His Hebrew words might miss the truth of what He was speaking because many of His Hebrew words do not have an English equivalent, which necessitates using his Hebrew words when necessary. In the book of Genesis we will learn the Hebrew words Elohim, Yahweh, baraFN1 (creation), ruahFN2 (spirit), nepheshFN3 (soul), adamFN4 (mankind), adamahFN5 (ground), apharFN6 (dust), neshamahFN7 (breath), chayFN8 (life), muwthFN9 (death),  nachashFN10 (serpent), barakFN11 (blessed), ararFN12 (cursed), the tree of life,  living to times age–abiding, ganFN13 EdenFN14 (Garden of Eden) and the seed of the woman.

(Genesis and Revelations reveal mankind's story except for our present period of time, known as the age or the administration of the sacred secret.FN15 This revelation of a sacred secret, in age–past times was kept silent until it was revealed unto His apostles and prophets.FN16 In this our age, salvation is not acquired according to ones good worksFN17 but rather through faith.FN18 Also, this is the only age that at the sound of the trumpet the dead believers will be raised from among the dead and the living believers will ascend together into the clouds to meet the Lord in the air (Parsouia of the Lord), temporarily abiding with Christ in the heavens as celestial beings until Christ's returns to the earth for his 1,000 year reign, at which time we, once again, become terrestrial beings.FN19 This event, which occurs before the events in the book of Revelations, was a sacred secret, hidden away from the prophets. It is not to be confused with the resurrection of the just and unjust, which is recorded in the Old Testament, Gospels and Revelations, which will occur in Revelations chapter twenty.FN20 For more information concerning this age, read the article by E. W. Bullinger, "The Great Sacred Secret.")

Yahweh has revealed to us that there are two universes,FN21 the seen and the unseen,FN22 the visible and the invisible,FN23 the corruptible and the incorruptible,FN24 the mortal and the immortal;FN25 "Thus, also, it is written––The first man, Adam, became, a living soul, the last Adam, a life–giving ruah (spirit). Howbeit, not first, is the body of the ruah (spirit), but that, of the soul,––afterwards, that of the ruah (spirit). The first man, is of the ground, earthy, the second man, is, of heaven" (1 Cor. 15:45-47). (Ruah can best be described as an invisible force.)FN26 Genesis 1:1 to 3:14 is written about the first adam and his fall, while Genesis 3:15 to Revelations 22:21 is written about adams (mankinds) redemption, which would be accomplished in full by the last Adam, who took of the tree of life and ate, thereby making an avenue for us, who through him can also take of the tree of life and eat and live to times age-abiding, and enter into Yahweh's unseen, invisible, incorruptible and glorious universe. The obstinate world (Yahweh rejecters) verbally denies this unseen world but they know it exists and are without excuse.FN27 By verbally denying the Creator they exalt themselves to His position as Supreme Beings but one day they shall be brought low!FN28

B re'shîth (In Beginning)
B re'shîth, 'In [the] beginning,' is the name Yahweh gave His book which men changed to what we now call, 'Genesis.'FN29  This change should be an omen, giving us great concern that the Church does not even know the correct name of Yahweh's first book but rather it follows the traditions of men. The word 'and,' being used 102 times in the first thirty-four verses is the figure of speech called, polysyndeton.FN30  "Each one of the 102 separate acts  are emphasized; and the important word 'Elohim,' in verse one is carried like a lamp through the whole of this introduction (1:1 through 2:3)."FN31 The foundation of the spiritual significance of numbers is also found in Genesis. (See Appendix A)  In the first three chapters of Genesis, Yahweh gives us all of the necessary elements with which to understand our physical universe, our very existence. By observing His Hebrew word usage we can determine the errors that have been taught by the Church. Let Yahweh be true and every man a liar!  The majority of the Church's teaching on spirit, soul and death are wrong according to Genesis and Revelations. We shall begin with the word ruah, which has been translated, 'spirit,' which is used in verses 1:2 and 3:8. These chapters do not say that man is a ruah or has a ruah or that his ruah is everlasting. Neither does it unveil 'God the Ruah (Spirit).' Nephesh, translated as soul, is used in verses 1:20, 21, 24, 30; 2:7 and 19. These verses do not say that man has a nephesh or that it is immortal. In these chapters it is told that man was formed of the dust of the ground and Yahweh Elohim breathed into him the neshamah of life and man became a living nephesh. It also states that man will die and return to the ground. There is no hell, purgatory or heaven mentioned in these chapters but there is mentioned the seed of the woman (Our Savior), the demise of the serpent and that the Tree of Life can give you life to times age–abiding.

In the last three chapters of Revelation, there are no men living in hell, purgatory or heaven but there are men who are dead and given life, raised from the dead to reign with Christ on the earth for one thousand years.FN32 We are also told that the rest of the dead, who are not in heaven, purgatory or hell, lived not until the thousand years were ended.FN33 If these individuals are not alive then they must be dead, returned to dust as foretold in Genesis. Earth is man's domain, which he shall inherit. The Garden of Eden was upon the earth as is the thousand year reign of Christ and the New Jerusalem. We can then come to the conclusion that man is not a celestial being, as the Church sometimes teaches, but rather a terrestrial being; he came from the ground, dies and returns to the ground and some will be raised to live again on the ground age-abidingly with Yahweh and Christ.

One common being living in both books is the serpent also known as the dragon, who is called the deceiver.  Could it be that this deceiver has deceived the present day Church as he did Eve and as he will also do to the nations who will live under the reign of Christ for 1,000 years? If the doctrines we believe are not mentioned in the book of Genesis or Revelation then where did they come from? The dragon's assault has always been the Words of Yahweh, which he has had men change, add to and delete. His methods are no different today. For example, Genesis 2:7 in older Bible translations says, "man became a living soul [nephesh]," but in today's newer versions, they now say, "man became a living being."FN34 The serpent said to Eve, in Genesis 3:4, "Ye shall not, die." Is this not the exact phrase the majority of Churchs use to instruct their members that upon death men do not die but live on in hell, purgatory or heaven? Are not our funeral services full of this same doctrine delivered by the serpent over four thousand years ago?  'Absent from the body, present with the Lord'FN35 is proclaimed by many but Yahweh's doctrine of dying, returning to the ground and awaiting to live again in the resurrection, as proclaimed in Genesis and Revelations, is absent. We must discard the doctrines of men and return to Yahweh's Word.

 "Genesis is the seed-plot of the whole Word of Yahweh. It is essential to the true understanding of its every part. It is the foundation on which Divine Revelation rests; and on which it is built up. It is not only the foundation of all truth; it is the underlying structure on which Holy Scripture is built."FN36 Genesis, chapters 1 - 3 finds it complement in the Book of Revelations, chapters 19 - 22. (See Appendix B) These two books reveal the possibilities of mankind.

According to the Word of Yahweh there are three heavens and three earths.FN37 The first heaven and earth are presented in Genesis 1:1. It becameFN38 waste and wild (tohu va bohu, Is. 45:18) in Genesis 1:2 and perished by water.FN39 The second heaven and earth, which we presently live in, began in Genesis 1:3 and will one day be destroyed by fire.FN40 The third heaven and earth begin in Revelations 21:1 and has no end. In my opinion, the first heaven and earth did not have a sun or moon but Yahweh was the light thereof. This would make it similar to the third heaven and earth which also do not need the sun or stars; "…the city, hath no need of the sun, nor of the moon, that they should shine therein; for, the glory of Yahweh, illumined it, and, the lamp thereof, was the Lamb" (Rev. 21:23; 22:5). In Genesis 1:1 to 2:3, Elohim creates the heavens and the earth, unveiling the mysteries of our physical universe. We do not know the age of the earth because day one did not begin at Genesis 1:1 but rather at 1:3-5. We do know the ages of the sun, moon and stars, which are approximately six thousand years old because they were made on day four. Darwinism is pseudo-science because Elohim states in His Word that everything bears fruit after its kind.FN41 What came first the egg or the chicken? It was the chicken! All true science will be found in harmony with these accounts.

Adam & Adam-ah
Genesis 2:4 to 3:24 unveils Yahweh Elohim as the formerFN42 of adam (mankind) from the apar (dust) of the adama (ground). The Hebrew word, 'adam,'FN43 meaning mankind (human beings) is from the root word, 'adom,' meaning red.FN44 Adamah (adamâ) meaning 'ground, land, earth' comes from 'adam.' "The Word of Yahweh makes much of the relationship between man (adam) and the ground (adamâ). That this might be vivid in the mind of the reader we will transliterate the words in the following discussion. Initially, Yahweh Elohim made adam out of the adamâ to till the adamâ (Ge 3:23, to bring forth life?). The adamâ was Yahweh's possession and under his care. Thus, the first adam (the man, Adam) and his family were to act as Yahweh's children by obeying him in maintaining the divinely created and intended relationships vertically and horizontally. As long as this condition was sustained Yahweh caused the adamâ to give its fruitfulness (blessing) to adam.

Then came sin. Adam (Adam and Eve; see also #Ro 5:12) violated the created structure. The adamâ, henceforth, brought forth thorns and thistles rather than freely giving fruit. Since adam had disrupted the paradisiacal life-producing state, he was driven off the paradisiacal adamâ and sentenced to return to the adamâ. However, the gracious Creator did not completely destroy adam. He promised to bring forth from adam a lifegiver, the seed of the woman (Gen. 3:15). As a token of that promise the Creator caused the adamâ to give of its fruit (blessing) to adam (note the curse on Cain, #Ge 4:12,14, whereby the adamâ was no longer to give its strength to him). Because of disobedience adam received a curse from the adamâ rather than life. Thus, we see that adam / adamâ are deeply involved in the pattern creation-fall-redemption."FN45

Contrary to metaphysical philosophy, which includes the teachings of the Christian Church, the Word of Yahweh states that adam (mankind) is strongly associated with adamah (the ground) rather than being an immoral soul or spirit. Yahweh formed adam from the dust of the adamah (ground) in Genesis 2:7 and because of their disobedience, accursed would be the adamah (ground); they would return to the adamah (ground); "…For, dust, thou art, And, unto dust, shalt thou return" (Gen. 3:19). Yahweh does not mention adam (mankind) as being immortal beings going to heaven, hell or purgatory upon death but rather returning to aphar (dust). Yahweh does make this conditional promise to adam (mankind) concerning how an age-abiding life can be aquired; "…Now, therefore, lest he thrust forth his hand, and take even of the tree of life, and eat, and live to times age–abiding" (Gen. 3:22).

The Tree of Life
(Chay = khah'- ee)
Yahweh's one message to mankind is to chose between life (chay) or death (muwth or maveth); "See! I have set before thee, today, life [chay] and prosperity,––and death [maveth] and calamity" (De. 30:15).FN46 Yahweh's offer to mankind has always been to live an age-abiding life with Him in His Garden. This offer was given to Eve and Adam by making it available to eat of the Tree of Life which was in the mist of the Garden of Eden.FN47 This same offer has been given to all of mankind.FN48 One must only "…thrust forth his hand, and take even of the Tree of Life [chay], and eat, and live [chayay] to times age–abiding" (Gen. 3:22).FN49

Chay (Life), the unseen force that animates matter, came from the spoken Word of Elohim. (Chay is not used for vegetation but rather for all animal life. Vegetation was placed upon the earth before Elohim used the word, 'chay.') The first usage is in Genesis 1:20; "And Elohim said––Let the waters swarm with an abundance of chay (living) nephesh (soul), and, birds, shall fly over the earth, over the face of the expanse of the heavens."  Yahweh Elohim then formed man from the adamah (ground) and "…naphach (breathed) in his nostrils the neshamah (breath) of chay (life)––and adam (man) became a chay (living) nephesh (soul)" (Gen. 2:7). Chay (life) is associated with breathing (ruah or neshamah). Yahweh told Ezekiel to "…Prophesy unto the ruah (spirit),––Prophesy, Son of adam (man), and thou shalt say unto the ruah (spirit), Thus, saith Adonay, Yahweh––From the four ruah (winds), come thou, O ruah (spirit), And naphach (breathe) into these slain, That they may chayah (live)" (Ez. 37:9).

It appears that chay (life), indefinable by man, is part of Yahweh's unseen universe. Man cannot bottle or duplicate or identify chay. Once life is gone, death (corruption) occurs whether in animal or plants; all return to the adamah (ground) from whence they have come. Once the invisible force of chay leaves the last of a species, the species is extinct. Elohim spoke life into beings on the earth allowing its own regeneration to reoccur into other beings. His commandment to animal life was to "Be fruitful and multiply." The elements that compose a body come from the adamah (ground) but chay (life) does not come from the ground but rather this invisible force was transferred from the original parents of Genesis chapter one to their offspring, which includes all life that exists today. Chay is like a torch, that can generate other torches but if it is extinguished, darkness (death) is the state of its being. Yahweh or His servants would have to speak chay (life) into existence again, as is done when one is raised from among the dead.

This also probably explains the lack of chay in Genesis 1:2. The first heaven and earth, which probably included dinosaur's etc., perished by water and an absence of light. Water would kill all land breathing life and the absence of light would destroy all plant life until all life would perish; "Now, the earth, had become waste and wild, and, darkness, was on the face of the roaring deep,––but, the ruah [invisible force] of Elohim, was brooding on the face of the waters" (Gen. 1:2). In Genesis 1:3 Elohim spoke into existence light, then dry land and then vegetation, all things which are necessary for animals. Then He spoke into existence animals and mankind, equipping them with chay. Psalms 104:19-30 tell part of this story:

 "He hath made the moon for seasons,
And, the sun, knoweth his place for entering in.
Thou causest darkness, and it becometh night,
Therein, creepeth forth, Every wild beast of the forest;
The young lions, roaring for prey, And seeking, from El, their food.
The sun ariseth, they withdraw themselves, And, in their lairs, lay them down.
Adam (man) goeth forth to his work, And to his labour, until evening.
How thy works abound, O Yahweh!
All of them––in wisdom, hast thou made, The earth is full of thy possession:––
This sea here, is great and broad on both hands,
Wherein are creeping things, even without number, Living things, small with great;
There, ships, sail along, This sea–monster, thou hast formed to sport therein;
All of them, for thee, do wait, That thou mayest give them their food in its season;
Thou givest unto them, they gather, Thou openest thy hand, they are satisfied with good.
Thou hidest thy face, they are dismayed, Thou withdrawest their ruah (invisible force), They cease to breathe, And, unto their own dust, do they return:
Thou sendest forth thy ruah(invisible force), they are created,
And thou renewest the face of the ground.

If one chooses not to take and eat of the tree of life then he has chosen death.

Yahweh told Adam that he would muwth (die) if he disobeyed Him. (Muwth is the opposite of chay.) This first evidence that adam (mankind) would not live to times age-abiding was displayed in the phrase, "…all the days of thy chay (life)" (Gen. 3:17). The serpent also received the same words concerning his chay (life).FN50 Death does not mean living a life (chay) in an evil place, such as in hell or purgatory, as is taught by many but rather the absence of chay (life). The absence of Yahweh's breath (neshamah)FN51 of chay (life) (Gen. 2:7) is to cease breathing (gava);FN52 "And, I, behold me! bringing in the flood––even waters, upon the earth, to destroy all flesh, wherein is the spirit [ruah] of life [chay], from under the heavens,––everything that is in the earth, shall cease to breathe [gava]" (Gen. 6:17); "And all flesh ceased to breathe [gava] that moved on the earth, of birds and of tame–beasts and of wild–beasts, and of all the swarming things that swarm on the earth,––and all mankind" (Gen. 7:21). When one ceases to breathe (gava) he dies (muwth).FN53 Yahweh takes no pleasure in the death of the lawless manFN54 but he will machah (wipe out) his life as He did in the days of Noah.FN55 "All in whose nostrils was the neshamah (breath) of the ruah (spirit) of chay (life), of all that were on the dry ground, muwth (died). Thus was machah (wiped out) all that existed on the face of the ground, from adam (man) unto beast, unto creeping thing, and unto the bird of the heavens, thus were they machah (wiped out) from the earth,––so that there was left––only Noah and they that were with him in the ark" (Gen. 7:22-23).

The Second Death
In Genesis 7:22-23, all animals who could breathe, including mankind, were wiped out from the earth. Their chay was removed thereby they breathed their last breath; they expired. Mankind, after returning to dust, is the only being on earth that will be raised from the dusty ground for judgment according to his obedience to the Word of Yahweh; "…and, at that time, shall thy people, be delivered, every one found written in the book; and, many of the sleepers in the dusty ground, shall awake,––these, shall be to age–abiding chay (life), but, those, to reproach, and age–abiding abhorrence"FN56 (Dan. 12:1-2); "Thy muwth (dead), shall come to chayah (life) again, My dead body, they shall arise,––Awake and shout for joy, ye that dwell in the dust, For, a dew of light, is thy dew, And, earth, to the shades, shall give birth" (Is. 26:19).

The phrase, 'second death,' is the second time chay (life) leaves an individual. This phrase is only used in Revelations and is associated with the Lake of Fire, which also is only used in Revelations.FN57 The Second Death meaning is to die again never to be raised; an age-abiding repulsion (abhorrence);FN58 an age-abiding destruction;FN59 consumed out of the earth; no more existence.FN60 Genesis unveils the first death and Revelations unveils the second or last age-abiding death. The only beings thrown alive into the Lake of Fire are the beast, the false prophet and the dragon.FN61

Yahweh, the Lamb, the serpent and Us
The simple truth of Genesis and Revelations is that they have four main characters; Yahweh, the Lamb, the serpent and us. The serpent is eventually thrown into the Lake of Fire, which leaves three characters, Yahweh, the Lamb and his servants; "And, no curse, shall there be, any more; and, the throne of Yahweh and of the Lamb, shall be, therein,––and his servants will render divine service unto him, and they shall see his face, and, his name, shall be upon their foreheads" (Rev. 22:3-4). Yahweh is the Creator, who is ruah, an invisible force.FN62 The Lamb is the seed of the woman, a son of adam, who was also begotten of Yahweh,FN63 who died, who was the first born from among the dead,FN64 who is the Savior of mankind. We are the sons of adam, inheritors of the earth, who are positioned a little below the Lamb who is seated at the right hand of Yahweh. Genesis begins with three main characters (Yahweh, adam and the serpent (deceiver)) and ends with three main characters, Yahweh, the Lamb (redeemer) and the sons of adam. The only trinity in these books is the trinity of Yahweh, Christ and those who are written in the Book of Life; "…I, am in my Father, and, ye, in me, and, I, in you" (Jn. 14:20).FN65

Yahweh sums up the choices and outcomes that mankind will make in the books of Genesis and Revelation. In Genesis, He instructed Adam that he may eat of the Tree of Life "…but, of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it,––for, in the day thou eatest thereof, thou shalt, die" (Gen. 2:17). These same truths are in the book of Revelations. In Revelations 21:6-7, the descriptive words used for those who conquer are: thirsting, give, fountain, water, life, freely, inherit and son;  "…I, unto him that is thirsting, will give of the fountain of the water of life [zoe], freely: He that overcometh [nikao],FN66 shall inherit these things,––And I will be, to him, a Elohim, and, he, shall be, to me, a son" (Rev. 21:6-7). In Revelations 21:8, the descriptive words used for those who are cowards, those who do not thirst are: unfaithful, foul, murderer, prostitute, drug user, idolater, false one, lake of fire and death; "But, as for the timid [deilos],FN67 and disbelieving [apistos],FN68 and abominable [bdelusso],FN69 and murderers, and fornicators [pornos],FN70 and sorcerers [pharmakeus],FN71 and idolaters, and all the false [pseudes],FN72 their part, is in the lake that burneth with fire and brimstone,––which is the second death" (Rev. 21:8).

Yahweh had these promises written before any of us were born in order that we would know the outcome of our free-will choices. As He spoke to Israel by the prophets so has He done with us; "See! I have set before thee, today, life and prosperity,––and death and calamity; for thou must keep the commandments of Yahweh thy Elohim, which I am commanding thee, today, to love Yahweh thy Elohim, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes, and his regulations,––so shalt thou live and multiply, and Yahweh thy Elohim will bless thee, in the land which thou art entering to possess. But, if thy heart shall turn away, and thou wilt, not hearken,––but shalt be drawn away, and shalt bow thyself down to other gods, and serve them, I declare unto you, today, that ye shall perish,––ye shall not prolong your days, upon the soil which thou art passing over the Jordan to enter and possess. I call to witness against you today, the heavens and the earth, that life and death, have I set before thee, the blessing and the curse,––therefore shouldest thou choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed;  to love Yahweh thy Elohim, to hearken unto his voice, and to cleave unto him,––for, he, is thy life, and thy length of days, that thou mayest abide upon the soil which Yahweh sware to thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac and to Jacob, to give unto them" (Deu. 30:15-20).

The books of Genesis and Revelations are foundational for our beliefs. If our beliefs contradict the truths presented in these books then we, as was Eve as well as Saul (Apostle Paul) before he was converted, have been deceived. B re'shîth  introduces us to the titles and name of our Creator; Elohim (1:1 to 2:3) and then to Yahweh Elohim (2:4 to 3:24) and then to Yahweh (4:1). We learn that adam (mankind) was formed from the ground, will return to the ground and will be raised from the ground because of the Seed of the Woman. The Seed of the Woman, who will be known in Revelations as the Lamb, he who crushes the head of the serpent is he who sits upon the judgment throne in Revelations 20:11.FN73 In Genesis chapter one and two, Yahweh's habitation was with Adam and Eve in His Garden. In Revelations it appears that once again Yahweh will descend and abide upon the now holy earth,FN74 with His holy Son and now with His purified holy childrenFN75 because sinful men, death and Sheol have been destroyed from the earth, never to return. As John the Immerser prepared the way for Yahweh,FN76 so has Yahshua, from the beginning of his ministry through his one thousand year reign, prepared the future earth, with its inhabitants, for the holy arrival of Yahweh; "…Holy! holy! holy! Yahweh, Elohim of Host,––Who was, and Who is, and Who is coming" (Rev. 4:8).FN77   

Appendix A
Spiritual Significance of Numbers
The spiritual significance of numbers, as given by Yahweh's usage, are present in the first thirty-four verse of Genesis. The number three denotes completeness, seven denotes spiritual perfection, ten denotes ordinal perfection and twelve denoting governmental perfection.FN78  The phrases, 'Elohim create,' 'And Elohim made,' 'And Elohim blessed,' and 'And Elohim called' are all used three times; 'And Elohim saw' is used seven times; 'And Elohim said' is used ten times. The title, 'Elohim,' is used thirty-five times; thirty-five being composed of five times seven, five denoting divine grace and seven denoting spiritual perfection. The phrase, 'And Elohim' is used thirty times; thirty is three times ten which denotes divine perfection, applied to order. Elohim placed the earth on a twelve month cycle; twelve denotes governmental perfection. "The four perfect numbers, 3,7,10, and 12, have for their product the remarkable number 2,520. It is the Least Common Multiple of the ten digits governing all numeration; and can, therefore, be divided by each of nine digits, without a remainder. It is the number of chronological perfection (7 x 360)."FN79

FN26 Appendix 9  THE USAGE OF RUACH from the Companion Bible by E. W. Bullinger
The word ruach occurs 389 times in the Hebrew Old Testament.
The meaning of the word is to be deduced only from its usage. The one root idea running through all the passages is invisible force. As this force may be exerted in varying form, and may be manifested in divers ways, so various renderings are necessitated, corresponding thereto. Ruach, in whatever sense it is used, always represents that which is invisible except by its manifestations. These are seen both externally to man, as well as internally within man. As coming from Elohim, it is the invisible origin of life. All apart from this is death.

FN27 Inasmuch as, what may be known of Yahweh, is manifest among them, for, Yahweh, unto them, hath made it manifest,–– For, the unseen things of him, from a world's creation, by the things made, being perceived, are clearly seen, even his eternal power and divinity,––to the end they should be without excuse; (Rm. 1:19-20).

FN28 Isa 2:12  For, a day of Yahweh of hosts, shall be––Upon every one who is high and lofty,––And upon every one who is lifted up, And he shall be brought low;

FN34 NIV, NKJV, Amplified Version etc.

FN35 (3) The third passage, 2 Cor. 5:6, 8, "to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord (KJV)," was the inspired desire of the Apostle, which could be realized only in resurrection. Resurrection (and not death) is the subject of the whole context. These words are generally misquoted" Absent from the body, present with the Lord", as though it said that when we are absent from the body we are present with the Lord. But no such sentence can be found. No less than nine words are deliberately omitted from the context when the quotation is thus popularly made. The omission of these words creates quite a new sense, and puts the verse out of all harmony with the context; the object of which is to show that we cannot be "present with the Lord" except by being clothed upon with our Resurrection body our "house which is from heaven". Rotherham translation II Cor. 5:1-8 as:

"For we know that––if, our earthly tent–dwelling, should be taken down,
we have, a building of Yahweh, a dwelling not made by hand, age–abiding in the heavens. 
And verily, in this, we sigh, earnestly desiring to clothe ourselves over,
with our habitation which is of heaven,–– 
Although, indeed, even clothing ourselves, we shall not be found, naked;  
And verily, we who are in the tent, do sigh, being weighed down,
while yet we are not wishing to unclothe ourselves, but to clothe ourselves over,
in order that, what is mortal, may be swallowed up, by life.
Now, he that hath wrought us for this very thing, is, Yahweh,
who hath given unto us the earnest of the spirit,
Having good courage, therefore, at all times,
and knowing that––remaining at home in the body,
we are away from home from the Lord,
By faith, are we walking, not by sight;
We have good courage, however, and are well pleased rather to be
away from home, out of the body, and to come home, unto the Lord.

We might with equal justice quote the words "hang all the law and the prophets", and leave out "on these two commandments" (Matt. 22:40); or say "there is no Elohim" and leave out "The fool hath said in his heart" (Psalm 53:1), or say "Ye shall not drink wine", and leave out "Ye have planted pleasant vineyards, but (ye shall not drink wine) of them" (Amos. 5:11); or talk about "the restitution of all things" and leave out "which Yahweh hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets" (Acts 3 :21).

All these partial quotations are correct so far as the Text is concerned, but what about the Context? The context is, "We have good courage, however, and are well pleased––rather to be away from home, out of the body, and to come home, unto the Lord." (v. 8). Being "at home in the body" in both verses is explained, in verse 3 as being in "this tent", which, in v. 1, is called "our earthly tent, dwelling"; and being "and to come home, unto the Lord" is explained in verse 2 as being "clothe ourselves over, with our habitation which is of heaven". The Apostle distinctly says, on the one hand, that he did not wish to die (v. 4, "not that we would be unclothed"); and on the other hand, he was not merely "willing rather" but "earnestly desiring to be clothed upon" (v. 2). It is true that some years later he did say "to die is gain"; but as we have seen above, the circumstances were very different, for he was then in prison.

FN42 03335  yatsar yaw-tsar' The basic meaning of this root is 'to form,' 'to fashion.' While the word occurs in synonymous parallelism with bara' 'create' and 'asâ 'make' in a number of passages, its primary emphasis is on the shaping or forming of the object involved.

FN43 adam. Man, mankind; also human (adj.), someone (indef.); Adam (the first man). Although the etymology of ' adam cannot be explained with certainty (cf. TDOT, I, p. 78), the word probably relates to the original ruddiness of man's complexion (cf. F. Maas, ' adam TDOT, I, pp. 78-79). This word for man has to do with man as being in Elohim's image, the crown of creation. It should be distinguished from ' îsh (man as opposite of woman, or as man distinguished in his manliness), ' enôsh (man as weak and vulnerable), geber (man as mighty and noble), and metîm;' adam occurs exclusively in the singular absolute, 562 times.

FN44 This, is the record of the generations of Adam,––In the day when Elohim created man, In the likeness of Elohim, made he, him; Male and female, created he them,––and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day they were created. Gen. 5:1-2

FN45 This pattern is repeated throughout the OT. After the flood God said he would never again curse the ' adamâ because of ' adam. {#Ge 8:21} He made a new covenant (creation) with Noah {#Ge 9:1-17} who became the father of ' adam (since only Noah and his immediate family were in the ark, #Ge 7:7). Noah became a tiller of the ' adamâ, {#Ge 9:20} and God blessed his efforts. However, Noah sinned. In Abraham the promise (redemption) given by God through Noah to Shem emerges in the form of Paradise regained, i.e. the promised land. {' adamâ, #Ge 28:14-15}
In the Mosaic legislation God gives the ' adamâ or takes it away according to the obedience of his people. {#Le 20:24} Its fruitfulness depends upon their obedience. {#De 11:17} Solomon repeats this creation-fall-redemption pattern around ' adam / ' adamâ. {#1Ki 8:34,40} This cycle governs the history of Israel. {#1Ki 13:34 1Ki 14:15 2Ki 21:8 2Ki 25:21} Nehemiah recognizes the same theological pattern (#Ne 10:37 [H 38]).
In the eschaton God will change the inner constitution of ' adam (fully restore the divine image) so as to eliminate the possibility of a fall and assure eternal possession of the ' adamâ which yields its fruit freely (#Eze 36:25-30; cf. #Jer 31:33-34 2Co 5:17 Heb 8:8-12) -the return to the garden of Eden. {#Eze 36:35} (Theological Wordbook of the Old Testament)

FN46 De 30:19  I call to witness against you today, the heavens and the earth, that life and death, have I set before thee, the blessing and the curse,––therefore shouldest thou choose life, that thou mayest live, thou and thy seed;

FN47 …Of every tree of the garden, thou mayest, eat; but, of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil (Gen. 2:16-17)

FN48 Re 2:7  He that hath an ear, let him hear what, the ruah (spirit), is saying unto the assemblies. Unto him that overcometh––I will give, unto him, to eat of the tree of life, which is in the paradise of Yahweh.

FN49 Joh 6:51  I, am the living bread, which, out of heaven, came down: If one eat of this bread, he shall live unto times age–abiding; and, the bread, moreover, which, I, will give, is, my flesh––for the world's life.

FN50 Then said Yahweh Elohim unto the serpent––Because thou hast done this, Accursed, art thou above every tame–beast, and above every wild–beast of the field,––on thy belly, shalt thou go, and, dust, shalt thou eat, all the days of thy life [chay]. Gen. 3:14

Every living thing on the face of the earth that breathed was blotted out {#Ge 7:22-23} including all human beings, except eight. mahâ figures prominently in the prayer in which Moses begged God to forgive the sin Israel incurred when they worshipped the golden calf. 'If not, blot me out of your book,' prays Moses. {#Ex 32:32-33} It had been God's intention to blot out Israel's name from under heaven, {#De 9:14} as repeated in #De 29:20 [H 191 (see also #Ps 69:28 [H 29]). Whether he regards it thus as a stain (as in #Ps 51:3,11) or a debt in a ledger (as in #Col 2:14) is not known with certainty. But he was willing, as was the apostle Paul, to be accursed for the sake of his brethren.

FN65 That there are three main characters in the Word of Yahweh who are connected by ruah (spirit) (1 Jn. 3:24, 4:13, See the article, 'Spirit & Soul'); Yahweh, Yahshua and the followers of Yahweh, also known as the believers; "In that day, shall ye get to know, That, I, am in my Father, and, ye, in me, and, I, in you" (Jn. 14:20, 1Cor. 3:23, Jn. 13:20, Mk. 13:32); "that they may be one, even as, we, are, one. I, in them and, thou, in me; That they may have been perfected into, one" (Jn. 17:22-23, 6:57); the husbandman, the vine and the branches (Jn. 15:1-5); the head of believers is Christ and the head of Christ is Yahweh (1 Cor. 11:3, Eph. 5;23). In the epistles we see there is one Yahweh the Father, of whom are all things, and, we, for Him; and one Lord Yahshua Christ, through whom are all things, and, we, through him (1 Cor. 8:6); in the seven Pauline Epistles we receive greetings from two entities to the believers; "from God [our] Father and Lord Jesus Christ" (Rm. 1:7, 1Cor. 1:3, 2 Cor. 1:2, Gal. 1:3, Eph. 1:2, Phil. 1:2, Col. 1:2, 1Thes. 1:1, 2 Thes. 1:2); in the book of Revelations we see two thrones; the throne of Yahweh and of the Lamb from which they will rule the believers (Rev. 22:1, 3). There are three main entities in the word of Yahweh; our Creator whose name is Yahweh, who is our Father, who is over all, and through all, and in all; the man Yahshua, the only begotten Son of Yahweh, the Christ, who is our Brother, Savior and Lord and only through him can we have our introduction unto the Father (1 Cor. 5:8) and ourselves, those who are servants and sons of Yahweh (Rev. 22:3). There is One Elohim Yahweh, One Lord Yahshua (1 Cor. 8:6) and One body of the Christ. These three entities are presently infused together with One ruah, the ruah of Yahweh (Eph. 4:4-6, Nm. 11:25, 1 Sam. 16:13, Is. 61:1, 1 Cor. 2:10-16).

Numbers are used in Scripture, not merely as in Nature, with supernatural design, but with spiritual significance, which may be summarised as follows [1]:-[1]  The whole subject may be studied in Dr. Bullinger's work on Number in Scripture (London: Eyre and Spottiswoode).

  • ONE. Denotes unity, and commencement. The first occurrences of words or utterances denote their essential significance, in interpretation. Words that occur only once, in the originals, are emphatic and important. First day, Light. The first occurrences of all important words and expressions are noted in the margin.
  • TWO. Denotes difference. If two different persons agree in testimony it is conclusive. Otherwise two implies opposition, enmity, and division, as was the work of the Second day. Compare the use of the word "double" applied to "heart," "tongue," "mind," etc.
  • THREE. Denotes completeness, as three lines complete a plane figure. Hence, three is significant of Divine perfection and completeness. The third day completes the fundamentals of creation-work. The fourth, fifth, and sixth days are the counterpart and repetition of the first, second, and third, and correspond respectively. (See the structure of #Ge 1) The number, three, includes resurrection also; for on the third day the earth rose up out of the deep, and fruit rose up out of the earth.
  • FOUR. Denotes creative works (3 + 1), and always has reference to the material creation, as pertaining to the earth, and things "under the sun," and things terrestrial.
  • FIVE. Denotes Divine grace. It is 4 + 1. It is God adding His gifts and blessing to the works of His hands. The Hebrew Ha'aretz (the earth), by "Gematria" (that is to say the addition of the numerical value of the letters together) is a multiple of four, while Hashamayim (the heavens) is a multiple of five. The Gematria of (charis), the Greek for Grace, is also a multiple of five. It is the leading factor in the Tabernacle measurements.
  • SIX. Denotes the human number. Man was created on the sixth day; and this first occurrence of the number makes it (and all multiples of it) the hall-mark of all connected with man. He works six days. The hours of his day are a multiple of six. Athaliah usurped the throne of Judah six years. The great men who have stood out in defiance of God (Goliath and Nebuchadnezzar and Antichrist) are all emphatically marked by this number.
  • SEVEN. Denotes spiritual perfection. It is the number or hall-mark of the Holy Spirit's work. He is the Author of God's Word, and seven is stamped on it as the water-mark is seen in the manufacture of paper. He is the Author and Giver of life; and seven is the number which regulates every period of Incubation and Gestation, in insects, birds, animals, and man.
  • EIGHT. Denotes resurrection, regeneration; a new beginning or commencement. The eighth is a new first. Hence the octave in music, colour, days of the week, etc. It is the number which has to do with the LORD, Who rose on the eighth, or new "first-day." This is, therefore, the Dominical number. By Gematria (see above), (Jesus) makes the numbers 888. It, or its multiple is impressed on all that has to do with the Lord's Names, the Lord's People, the Lord's works.
  • NINE. Denotes Finality of judgment. It is 3 x 3, the product of Divine completeness. The number nine, or its factors or multiples, is seen in all cases when judgment is the subject.
  • TEN. Denotes Ordinal perfection. Another new first; after the ninth digit, when numeration commences anew.
