The earth הארץ
- בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ Ge 1:1
צץ The tsadei has two descending lines, representing the revelation of God in two parts: he is holy and he is love. These messages are joined in the lower right corner which is the messiah point. It is where the word becomes flesh. The lower horizontal is the messiah among men. In it's final form, the 'tail' descends to the grave.The word רץ 'running' is illustrated by the story of 2Sa 18. Two runners ran to David to reveal the outcome of a battle. The first runner was last, and the last was first. The one who arrived first told the news of the victory, leaving the news of the death of David's son to the second to tell.
The word earth ארצ when interpreted by the hieroglyphics means “He is a split word running”. David expresses this as he unpacks the hieroglyphics for himself in “Ps 147:15 He sendeth forth his commandment [upon] earth: his word runneth very swiftly.” He uses two terms “commandment and word”. The commandment is the law which expresses holiness, and the Word is the son which went to the grave, expressing love. This is found in the word ארצ 'earth' even as the commandment and the word run in the earth. In Revelation, Jesus repeatedly says that he (the Word) comes quickly. (Re 3:11, Re 22:7, Re 22:12, Re 22:20)
questions: how did you get "He is a split word running"?
How did you get the commandment in the word "earth"?
It should be noted that previously it was shown that John unpacked the words 'beginning', 'created', and 'Elohim' to obtain his doctrine of John 1:1-4 and others. David used the same childish riddles and metaphoric meanings of the letters to obtain his doctrine of Ps 147:15. This method is not a new method of interpretation. It is not human invention. The authors of the Bible demonstrate their knowledge of it repeatedly. The Greek church never bothered to learn to read the Old Testament scriptures in Hebrew, preferring the Septuagint (the Greek version). But Jesus said that every smallest detail of his word would be protected (Mt 5:18). Each detail is important to teaching doctrine and revealing Christ. (Joh 5:39)
The next chapter will get into details which may make your head spin. Don't fret the details. The purpose is to show that the proper use of riddles, hieroglyphics and gematria validates the use, that is, it is internally consistent. Not only will they validate each other, but they will reveal Christ and correlate with doctrine as taught by Jesus and the apostles. Afterwards, we will pull back and show larger pictures and only occasionally pull in the details to validate them.
