The covenant made by the Father מ

The mem is drawn with a kaf כ representing the Son of God, and a zayin ז representing the bride, connected at the top (in heaven). The Father chose the bride for the Son.

2Th 2:13 ¶ But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:

Recall that Abraham chose Rebekah as a bride for Isaac.[1]

When the mem is at the end of a word, a different form is used. The final mem ם is also connected at the bottom, signifying that the promise of the Father has been completed on earth. The Son is the one who completed the work of the Father. The final mem represents the Son. The two mems are just two forms of the same letter. The Father and the Son are two forms of the same God.

Joh 10:30 I and [my] Father are one.
Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Joh 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

When the mem is used as a prefix it is translated ‘from’. All good things come from the Father.

Jas 1:17 Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

John is familiar with the meaning of the two mems and reminds his readers that there are three in heaven shamyim שמים who testify. The father mem מ , the Son final mem ם and the Spirit shin ש . He also demonstrates his knowledge of the meaning of the letters in earth artz ארץ.

The waters of Ge 1:2 mayim מים have the creation, represented by the yod י, surrounded by the Father מ and the Son ם. The Father is Spirit [2] and the Son is Truth [3].

To move a mountain to the waters… you worship in Spirit and in Truth.

Taught ל

When drawing the lamed, a yod י extending to a vav ו begins above the upper horizontal to a point below the upper horizontal. The lower section in a small kaf כ (Son of God) which takes a turn into the grave.

From the heart of the Father (above the line) what can be known of God (upper horizontal) is brought closer to man (lower position). The lamed represents teaching. God makes what can be known about him more accessible. The primary topic is the cross.

The lamed first appears in Elohim אלהים meaning ‘God separated from his people because they don’t understand’. It also means ‘His sheep hear his voice’. El אל means God. Specifically, he is the creator א who teaches ל.

He is not a God who created and walked away. He teaches because his people do not understand and he desires for them to know him.

Jesus said he kingdom of heaven was like leaven [1]; and leaven is ‘teaching’.

Jerusalem means ‘teaching of peace’ and the New Jerusalem means the ‘new teaching of peace’. When Jesus preached the sermon on the mount, he said “You have heard it said… but I say” as he ushered in the new teaching of peace, the New Jerusalem, the kingdom of heaven.

As he called Israel, he said “You are my witnesses…”[2] and called them to teach about him. As he called the church he said “Go… teaching”.[3]

Culminating creation is the day when teaching is no longer required, because all will know him. [4]

The Son of God כ

The kaf represents the Son of God. The upper horizontal is full length indication that he is fully God. The lower horizontal says that he is fully man. Not only is he fully God, but he is the everything that God wishes to reveal to man.

The curves indicate the personality of God included in the revelation which became man.

Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Joh 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou [then], Shew us the Father?

The kaf is the Word made flesh.

Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

As a prefix it has the meaning ‘like’. He was made like us.

Heb 2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto [his] brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things [pertaining] to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

They understood ח

The het (or chet) is similar to the hei but the vav extends to the top indicating a full response.  The hei represents hearing, without understanding. The het represents understanding, similar to the metaphor for seeing.

Elohim אלהים is translated as ‘God’. One of the embedded meanings is: God el אל separated from his people im ים  by their blindness ה. His people do not understand him. His sheep hear his voice but don’t understand the words which are taught.

Eph 4:18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:

When his people understand, it produced life.

Pr 16:22 ¶ Understanding [is] a wellspring of life unto him that hath it: but the instruction of fools [is] folly.
1Jo 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, [even] in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.

The Hebrew word for life chy חי is mirrored in Greek as the letter chi which looks like a cross. In Chinese it means “life force”.

Though there are many who teach that life comes from understanding, in scripture, there is a third symbol, walking, which represents life.  We are drawn to God when we hear, we understand when we see, but we live when we walk in understanding.

Wisdom is the application of knowledge in fear of the Lord.

Ps 111:10  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
Pr 9:10  The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.

Col 4:5 ¶ Walk [live] in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time.

God created the heavens and the earth א

The aleph א is a huge idea which can be viewed from many sides, and expressed in many ways. The primary meaning is that when God spoke, he created two things which are two aspects (heavens and earth) of one thing (creation).

The primary implication is that God is unique as the creator. He is not the same as everything else. Through the act of creation, he mirrors aspects of himself. What is mirrored will never share all aspects of God. The distinction of creator vs. created will always exist no matter how intimately the joining of man and God becomes.

The diagonal vav identifies a dual-dualism. It separates the upper horizontal line of the square-letter template from the lower, the heavens from the earth. This dualism expressed a divide between physical and non-physical attributes of creation. But as mentioned previously, it also joins them. The physical creation is a trope; metaphor, allegory, shadow, type, riddle, parable or pattern, of the unseen things. They exist so that we may know God, and that he is made known through the Son.

The diagonal vav also separates the left from the right in the square-text template. Holiness and Love are divided. His nature includes both, but in revealing himself, he expresses them separately so that we can understand.

God is Holy and extends his Love, he then makes men holy so that they can return his love.

One may ask how this is different from other forms of dualism. Don’t. This is a discovered dualism, not an invented one. God communicated it through his word and we can observe it. Once we understand it, the man-made forms become trivial.

Philosophic dualism separates mind from body. It is a trite representation of the words used by Paul, but missing the meaning of what Paul said.

Ro 8:10 ¶ And if Christ [be] in you, the body [is] dead because of sin; but the Spirit [is] life because of righteousness.

Moral dualism is a Satanic deception to elevate the devil to be equal with God. The world is not divided Good vs. Evil. Satan is not God’s peer. Creation was not good and evil, it was very good.

Ge 1:31 ¶ And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, [it was] very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
