There are Five Stages of Soul Growth
There are five stages of soul growth (Time and Space). They are:
1. Beginning (Genesis) – these are our earliest year’s lessons learned in family/close-knit groups
2. Finding Your Name (Exodus) -We are a young adult. Our experience questions about who we are/ want to be. In the end, a house is built, and peace of God dwells in us
3. God Calls (Leviticus) – We have mastered many of the rituals and routines of Adult life. We learn how to support others (Love your neighbor as ourselves)
4. Wandering in the Wilderness (Numbers) - Everything is good, but suddenly you may have a dramatic change of health, family, or work. You need courage, leadership, and calm.
5. Revelatory Words (Deuteronomy) – This is a life review. You affirm some of the principles you live by and revisit your memories. It is here you pass on your wisdom. You have grown.
Genesis 1:27 reads, “so God created man in his own image in the image of God created he him male and female created he them”
In this Scripture, the word "created" is used three times –
In Jewish understanding, this means that man was created with a spirit, a soul, and a body. The Bible does not waste words, letters, or anything. Not one jot or tittle would be removed.
How long was Adam without a mate? One night
Genesis 2:18 reads, “and the Lord God said it is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helpmeet for him.”
Adam was created on the night of the sixth day and Eve was created at the end of day six
Man’s “Floating Rib”
The rib that was taken from Adam's side was done while he slept. Between this time, Adam named the animals.
It was through the naming of the animals that Adam learned that every animal had a mate except for him
Genesis 2:7 reads, “and the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life and man became a speaking spirit”
The word "formed" in Hebrew, has an extra Hebrew letter yod - it means "MINE" (God is saying "You are MINE- You are my possession)
Genesis 2:21-22 reads, “And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.”
The word "rib" actually means intuition and wisdom.
Consider this: The numerical value for the mother is 41. The numerical value of the father is 3. The total is 44
The numerical value for a child is 44. When you do a "blood" test is equal to 44
The numerical value for pregnancy is 271. On a full 9-month term child, the day of delivery has a value of 271. Hebrew is truly the language of the LORD
Sidebar: The woman is known as the “Crown of God’s Creation.” God “formed” man, but he “fashioned” the woman. She is also the last of His creation.
Relationship with Man
Genesis 2:19 reads, "… brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them"
Adam named the animals in Hebrew with their identified characteristics or their future role in their life. Only when Adam realized he did not have a mate, God gave him Eve
Luke 4:17-19 reads, “And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And he opened the book, and found the place where it was written, The Spirit of the Lord is upon me Because he anointed me to preach good tidings to the poor: He hath sent me to proclaim release to the captives And recovering of sight to the blind, To set at liberty them that are bruised, To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”
Yeshua is reading the Haftorah from the book of Isaiah, which is tied to the Torah portion of Nitzavim (Deuteronomy 29:9 - 30:20)
What is written there?
“For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off. It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it? But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.”
Yeshua is saying that it was He that is the answer to these verses. When you read "Who shall go up for us," the 1st letter of each Hebrew word is men, yod, lamed, het = Melah, meaning those who will reject everything and make a covenant with the Lord - they will go up. The last letter of each word is YHVH. Now you know why He said, “This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears.” (Luke 4:21)
Genesis 3:6 reads, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”
It is taught in Jewish theology that this was the 10th of Tishri (Yom Kippur).
In this verse, the Hebrew letter Vav is used 6 times - making this the sixth Hour - 12:00pm – Noon
When did the High Priest go into the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur? - Noon
When did it turn dark at the crucifixion? - Noon
Genesis 3:8 reads, “And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day:”
“The cool of the day” is a Hebrew idiom for 3:00 pm.
When was the cool of the day? - 3:00 pm - the start of the Redemption
When did the High Priest kill the lamb? 3:00pm
The people kill the Passover lamb "between the evenings" (3:00 pm) - Between 12:00 - 6:00
When did the High Priest leave the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur? - 3:00pm
When did Yeshua die? 3:00pm
"and they heard the voice of the LORD God walking." How can they hear the voice of the LORD walking?
Exodus 20:18 reads, “And all the people saw the thunderings, and the lightnings, and the noise of the trumpet, and the mountain smoking:”
How can sound be seen?
You can see sound coming from a Jet today, how much more the presence of the LORD blowing the Shofar
The Bible says He called THEIR name "Adam." In Hebrew, the name “Adam” is spelled “Alaph, Dalad, Mem.” The reverse is “Mem, Dalad, Alaph” which means pleading.
The word “Adam” spelled backward means deep sincere prayer and communication. This is what the Maker wants from you. It says God wants us to plead our case before Him, to communicate with them. This is the goal.
The Two Comings
Genesis 50:24-26 reads, “And Joseph said unto his brethren, I die; but God will surely visit you, and bring you up out of this land unto the land which he sware to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob. And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence. So Joseph died, being a hundred and ten years old: and they embalmed him, and he was put in a coffin in Egypt.”
It actually reads "God shall surely visit you" – the word “Visit” is mentioned twice
The sages say that this verse says HE WILL VISIT US THROUGH THE MESSIAH IN TWO STAGES. He has visited us once in Bethlehem and He is coming again.
Exodus 25:8 reads, “And let them make me a sanctuary; that I may dwell among them.” In Hebrew, it reads "I will dwell INSIDE of them”
The Hebrew Blessing and Salt
Ba-ruch atah Adonai Elohaynu melech Ha-olam, ha-matzee le-chem min ha-aretz
Blessed art Thou, O Lord our God, King of the universe, who brings forth bread from the earth.
We lift up our 10 fingers and say the 10 words of the blessing over the bread. “Give us this day our daily bread" means eating bread with the Lord
Salt speaks of a relationship with God. Salt will be put on the bread (The Salt Covenant.) It is talking about a relationship we have with God.
Remember Lot's wife? She was destroyed through the Salt Covenant. She refused to have a relationship with God.
The Hebrew letter "Sheen"
When the Messiah comes back and steps on the Mount of Olives, and the earth splits, it will create the letter Sheen. The number of the beast is 666. To break up the letter Sheen will produce the Vav, Vav, Vav - 666
Psalm 22 was said at the crucifixion. The word: "forsaken" is in a different form.
Allow me to give another example: “I took my auto to the repair place and later I picked up my car."
Is it an Auto or is it a car?
They both are the same - a different word for the same thing. When Yeshua quoted Psalm 22 on the cross, it was a cry of victory. The Pharisees would have known the rest of the psalm.
Genesis 22:8 reads, “And Abraham said, My son, God will provide himself a lamb for a burnt offering.”
Genesis 22:13-14 reads, “And Abraham lifted up his eyes, and looked, and behold behind him a ram caught in a thicket by his horns: and Abraham went and took the ram, and offered him up for a burnt offering in the stead of his son. And Abraham called the name of that place Adonai Jireh: as it is said to this day, In the mount of the LORD it shall be seen.”
The word “thicket” in Hebrew is “Savat.” When he said what he said, He was fulfilling Genesis 22 as the ram. He was also saying “I am the lamb that Abraham was prophesying about.”
In Revelation 21, The dimensions of the New Jerusalem is described – Why was that necessary? What he was describing was a kosher chuppah.
Why is it so big?
All of the believers will be under that chuppah and serve for the blessings of the Lord.
“And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.” [Revelation 21:3]
