Being made to be sin ע

The ayin ע is drawn with two vavs ו which join above the lower horizontal, and then touch it farther to the left than in the corner where most letters touch. I call that right lower corner, the point of the cross, where the word of God meets man. the aiyin misses it. It’s origins start apart from each other along the upper horizontal representing holiness and love.

The primary metaphor is that holiness and love are joined, but not at the cross. This is the symbol of mixing. All the laws against mixing prohibit mixing holiness and grace. We cannot comprehend them if they are mixed apart from the cross.

Though Jesus was without sin in his life on earth [1], it was insufficient to save us. He was holiness and love reconciled in his flesh, but we still did not understand it. The lower part is in the earth, but not of it (slightly above). At the end of the tail (his life) he bore our sin and was made equal to us in sin as well.

As with many metaphors, there is a positive and negative way to express it. Water destroys and gives life, fire destroys and purifies. The ayin not only represents Christ in the flesh, but also the flesh itself and religion without the cross (which puts the self/flesh first). Evidence of these meanings comes from the word barah ברע, meaning in evil or son of evil.

The Hebrew word rea רע means evil, thought, neighbor, shout. Isn’t it interesting that when Jesus said to love your neighbor, he could also have said to love your enemy just by using the word rea. By the letters it says: revelation ר in the flesh ע. The carnal mind (in the flesh) is war with God.[2]

The word ed עד means testimony. By the letters it means the flesh ע speaks ד.

The word eth עת means time or era. By the letters it means the purpose or end ת of flesh ע.

The word ol על means yoke. By the letters it means to the flesh ע teaching ל is a yoke or bondage על.

The word ar ער or er ער means awake. By the letters the flesh ע received a revelation ר .

The name of the letter ayin means humiliation and depravity.


  • Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

Ro 8:7 Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.


Fulfilled the spiritual works of God ס

The samekh ס is like the final mem ם but it has rounded corners instead of square. It’s meaning is the same as the final nun; the son completed the promise of the Father. The mem is the completion in the flesh, and the samkh, the completion in the spirit.

Sodom סדם means burning. The letters tell us that the completed work, in spirit (samekh ס) and flesh (final mem ם), of the law (dalet ד) is burning.

2Co 3:6 ¶ Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.

Jacob’s ladder or stairway cullam סלם says that the completed work in the spirit and flesh has teaching (lamed ל) at it heart. The teaching theme pops out everywhere. In the name Elohim, man is separated from God because they do not understand that He is Holy; confirmed by Ro 1:18ff. The solution is the kingdom of heaven which is like teaching (leaven). Jesus taught the crowds and his disciples. The New Jerusalem is the New Teaching of Peace. His disciples are to go… teaching. Leaders in the church are to teach men who can in turn teach.

No man has seen the Father, so Jesus, the Son, makes him known through teaching, with the cross being central to that teaching.

Consider creation again: The firmament and Spirit were both between the waters. With water representing the word of God, Jesus and the Spirit bridge the gap between holiness and love. The word caphim ספם means door or threshold. The pe פ in the middle (between the two fulfilled word) represents parables, riddles and the mystery hidden from the beginning. The mystery is the heart of the finished work of God in heaven and earth; in the spirit and flesh. Christ is the door[1] He is the one who reveals the mystery, or the purposes of God in the Spirit, by fulfilling them in the flesh.

The word car ‘pronounced sar’ means sullen. The fulfilled spiritual work is that the revelation causes conviction of sin.

The word cab סב means to turn around. By the letters, the spiritual fulfillment ס is the revelation to man ב. It is preaching that calls men to repentance; to turn around. First it causes conviction with ‘car’ then as it penetrtates ‘into’ man ב, he repents.

Ro 10:14 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?

When a sacrifice was made, those making the sacrifice would eat parts of it. Eating is a metaphor for learning. The cal (pronounced ‘sal’) is the basket that carried the bread of sacrifice and what Gideon used for the flesh of the sacrificial kid. By the letters it means that the fulfilled purpose of God ס is by teaching ל.

The Son of Man נ

The nun נ is similar to the kaf כ with shorter horizontals. The kaf is the Son of God; the nun is the Son of Man. The long horizontals on the kaf mean taht he was fully God and fully man. The shorter horizontals on the nun mean that he was limited God and limited man. These are not contradictions, but different views of the same Christ.

The Son of God ‘closed his eyes ‘ to his divinity as he became a man.

Php 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
Php 2:7 But made himself of no reputation (κενόω kenoo to make void), and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

He did not cease to be God. This is important to understand. Many rail against the idea, and properly so, that Jesus never ceased to be God. He did not give up his godhood. He chose not to use his attributes of divinity. One does not become blind when the eyes are closed.

Why would he do this? In order to be our high priest. He cannot be our high priest if he resisted temptation using his divinity. He would not have been tempted as we are. We would accuse him and say he does not know what it is to be man, and be tempted without the advantage that he had.

Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as [we are, yet] without sin.

Those who deny his kenosis often find themselves having to defend silly ideas like a flying baby Jesus, or stories of him giving life to clay birds. They can’t really say he didn’t do these things. They can only say we don’t have authoritative sources to prove he did. And so the myths persist.

The best advocates for the anti-kenosis position have to ignore that Jesus said he only gave one sign, and attribute the rest to his personal power, rather than to the power of God through him as God worked through other prophets. This error makes them blind to the dialog between Father and Son through those same signs.

Evidence of his kenosis or emptying, is found in several places.

Jesus did not know the day of his return:

Mt 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.

He only performed one sign, and this at the time of his death and resurrection: Mt 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed.

He taught people how to read the scriptures, because he read the scriptures. It is through them, that as a boy, he learned who he was and what he was to do. The anti-kenosis crowd, believing he used his omniscience, also attribute magic knowledge as the mechanism for Biblical inspiration. They believe that the NT authors had a portion of omniscience or magic knowledge to write the scriptures. They miss the lessons of the NT authors as they teach how to read the scriptures the way Jesus did.

He was actually tempted, which is contradictory to one who is affording himself access to the attributes of deity:

Jas 1:13 ¶ Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

Jesus also limited himself as a man, not taking a family and having children; not building a home and earthly wealth.

The nun also has a final form where the tail extends below the line to death ן. It very closely resembles a larger vav and וis the symbol of the Son of Man on the cross. It tells us that Jesus did not use his divinity to help him through his tribulation and death on the cross.

The word nun means fish or posterity, which is why the fish was used as a symbol of the cross, and the children, or fruit of the cross… the church.

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.


  • Ge 24:4 But thou shalt go unto my country, and to my kindred, and take a wife unto my son Isaac.
  • Joh 4:24 God [is] a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship [him] in spirit and in truth.

Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.


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]


  • Mt 13:33 Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.
  • [Isa 43:12]] I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when [there was] no strange [god] among you: therefore ye [are] my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I [am] God.
  • [[Mt 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.

Heb 8:11 And they shall not teach every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord: for all shall know me, from the least to the greatest.


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:

A new creation י

The yud represents the first and complete thought that God had to create. It oozes from the blank page which represents God. Consider:

-Every letter is drawn by first drawing a yud.
-Every word is made of letters derived from the yud.
-Everything that was created was spoken into existence using words.
-Every thought is expressed in words.

The essence of everything that is created is contained in the infinitesimally small yud. It is like the hypothetical Big Bang of science, but it includes personality. Creation is the testimony of God.

Ps 19:1 ¶ « To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. » The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

As a metaphor it represents God who thought the thought of creation. It represents the thought itself or the result of the thought.

The yud is known as the jot in Greek. Jesus said that not the tiniest part of any letter of the law would disappear before it was fulfilled. And since the tiniest part, the yud, represents all of creation, the meaning is that not one thing from the tiniest part to the whole will disappear before it is fulfilled.

The name of the letter, yud יד, means hand. The hand represents works. Creation is the work of God. The right hand represents his spiritual works, and the left hand represents his physical works.

The idea that words are formed from the meaning of the letters is foreign to those who think like Greeks (most of us). But his name yahweh has the dictionary meaning of “I am”

Yahweh יהוה is yah י , God, the creator (yud) י – of calamity (evil) havvah הוה

Isaiah 45:7 says: ‘…I make peace, and create evil [calamity]: I the LORD [Yahweh] do all these things.’

He created the system where you reap what you sow.

Job 4:8 Even as I have seen, they that plow iniquity, and sow wickedness, reap the same.

He created the system that brings to fruit the calamity that we sow by plowing in sin. And this system is good, even though we choose calamity. Suffering is a schoolmaster of the flesh to drive us back to God.

“It is not supposed to be this way” is the cry of reaping our own harvest, and acknowledging that God’s harvest is better.

Marriage with the Son of God ט

The tet ט is formed by the joining of a kaf כ (Son of God) and the zayin ז (his bride) at the bottom.  Together they form the marriage on earth.

Just as Adam obtained his bride through his sleep/death Christ obtained his bride through the cross. The church IS the bride of Christ.

The tet ט first appears in scripture in the word “good” towb טוב.  Each day of creation was good. By the letters: The marriage ט clarified by ו the revelation to man (the son) ב.

Each day of creation is also a “day” yowm יום. By the letters it means: A clarification ו of God’s intention י and how it was fulfilled by the son in the flesh ם.

Each day was good because each day is a picture of the revelation of the son, which is of the cross and a symbol of the marriage of Christ to the church.

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.

The bride ז

The zayin ז returns to God on the left side of the Square Text template. The Word of God came to earth down the right  side and returned on the left.  The bride is made to be like Christ:

1Jo 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.

The shin ש has two zayins returning to God. Christ did not return void, but with an increase. The bride is the increase.

Consider it’s use in the word Male’ zakar זכר.

The zayin retains its primary metaphor as it is used to build words. The ‘male’ zakar זכר is the ‘son of God’ kaf כ who is ‘laden with guilt’ zar זר. ‘Laden with guilt’ is ‘the returning’ zayin ז ‘revelation’ resh ר. Whose guilt is it? That of the bride.

The same word is: the bride’s ז butting lamb ר.  The lamb used for the bride’s sacrifice.

Also it is: the pure זכ revelation ר .  There can be no purer revelation than the male זכר , as a symbol of Christ.

Eph 5:31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
Eph 5:32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
