Four as two
The ד dalet has a value 4 and its name has a value of 2. The ד represents a declaration, or the word. The word is spoken through four voices: prophets, priests kings and judges. When there are two things, there is one thing which is spiritual and one which is physical. Four is two sets of two. Use S-spiritual and E-earthly. There are two voices which are pure: the King is EE and speaks of earthly things in plain language. The Priest is SS and speaks of heavenly things in a hidden language. The Judge and Prophet are mixtures SE and ES. The prophet hides prophecies of Jesus in the childish riddles, while the judge speaks of God's opinion of what takes place in the events recorded in the voice of the king. All the laws against mixing relate to these four voices. He has made us to be kings and priests. We are kings when we rule the flesh, and priests when we intercede for others, placing them first. We are not made to be prophets, since prophecy has been fulfilled (Joh 19.30) and we are commanded not to judge. (Mt 7.1) These voices are mixtures of Spiritual and Earthly things, and Christ alone reconciles heaven and earth, holiness and grace, spirit and flesh.
Ten as Five
ה hei as the fifth letter represents man's response to the declaration of God. The word איש man has a value of 5. But Jesus was a dual-natured man. He was God and man. The dual-natured man (2 x 5) has a value of 10 as does the word אישה'man of her' (prophecy of the virgin birth), which reduces to 1. Jesus was God. In the parable of the ten virgins, five were spiritual (having oil) and five were not. (Mt 25.1) The word צן thorn has a value of 5. Jesus says that thorns represent the 'cares of the world' (Mk 4.19) and Paul says he has a thorn in the flesh. (2Co 12:7). But when an א with a value of 1 is added, it becomes a צןא sheep with a separated walk (cloven hoof). It is a clean animal with a value of 6 having two testimonies of God (2 x 3), one in it's flesh and one in its spirit. (Le 11.3) The number ten is represented by the letter yud. which name has a value of 5. Yud makes the sound 'ya' which is the name of God יה with a value of six and is two testimonies י (the creator) and ה (man); the heavenly yud and the earthly hei; the dual-natured man.
The use of gematria in this work is limited to the practice as taught by the Biblical authors. In the same way that the metaphoric meaning of letters and words is not free-for-all allegory, which has been much misused in interpreting scripture, proper gematria is practiced in the form as demonstrated by the Biblical authors. Many have abused the use of gematria with the effect of discrediting the proper use and distracting the reader from the intention of God in revealing Christ through his word.
