Hidden words in Genesis 1:1 Session 7 – God’s Grand Design Seminar. Note that when the golden candlestick is divided according to the above 4-3 divisional schema, we find that the first three branches plus the shaft constitutes 57.1428571% (4 / 7 = 0.571428571) of the entire beaten work; while the remaining three branches constitute 42.857143% of the entire beaten work (3 / 7 = 0.42857143). The very first verse of the Bible and one of the most important ones! the golden candlestick and its relation to the biblical canon. ב וְהָאָרֶץ, הָיְתָה תֹהוּ וָבֹהוּ, וְחֹשֶׁךְ, עַל-פְּנֵי תְהוֹם; וְרוּחַ אֱלֹהִים, מְרַחֶפֶת עַל-פְּנֵי הַמָּיִם.

There is one final thing I want to discuss about the golden candlestick in relation to the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1. The seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1 have been deliberately fashioned by God in the likeness of the golden candlestick described in Exod. This is a subject that I will discuss at much greater length in a future discussion. Now that we have that out of the way, let us look at how the seven words of Genesis 1:1 conform perfectly to this pattern: Here it is in tabular form (with English translation): One will immediately note that the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1 are not arranged in this pattern as one would naturally expect, that is–according to their word order.

Throughout the Bible the number seven appears repeatedly as a symbol of divine perfection - the 7 days of creation, God rested on the 7th day, the 7 churches, the 7 seals, the 7 trumpets, etc. Genesis 1:22. Alas, Answers in Genesis doesn’t like our take on Genesis 1:1-3 (they discovered it through Ben Stanhope’s post). Although this mystery may seem trivial, it is actually extremely important as it is deeply intertwined with numerous other biblical mysteries which are also tied to the design of the golden candlestick. Genesis 1:1. Genesis 1:4. Just as the central shaft unites the three branches on the left with the three branches on the right and fills them with pure olive oil, so too the accusative particle unites the three words on the left with the three words on the right and brings them to life as one unified living statement. Genesis 1:1 is the first verse of the first chapter in the Book of Genesis in the Bible and the opening of the Genesis creation narrative . The three pairs of branches are self-evident–branches 1 & 4 constitute a pair, branches 2 & 5 constitute a pair, and branches 3 & 6 constitute a pair. The Hebrew word translated as “formed” is the verb יצר (yatsar) and is best understood as the process of pressing clay together to “form” an object, such as a figurine.

The end result is one unified meaningful statement: Taken together, it is blatantly obvious that the אֵת particle corresponds to the central shaft of the golden candlestick. The three words corresponding to lamps 1, 2, and 3 of the candlestick tell us what God did and when he did it (“In the beginning God created”), while the three words corresponding to lamps 4, 5, and 6 tell us specifically what he created (“the heavens and the earth”).4 Here yet again, we can see the design of the golden candlestick being reflected in the grammatical structure of the verse. It is the first word of the bible, and is believed by some to contain a secret message concerning the crucifixion of Christ. Genesis 1-26b. Hidden words in the first sentence of the Bible, Genesis 1:1 in Hebrew. One lamp resided on the central shaft; the other six resided on the six outer branches which extended out from the central shaft (three on each side). This means that the four words corresponding to lamps 1, 2, 3, and 7 contain exactly 57.1428571% of all the letters in the verse (16 / 28 = 0.571428571), while the three words corresponding to lamps 4, 5, and 6 contain exactly 42.857143%  (12 / 28 = 0.42857143) of all of the letters in the verse. Hebrew Word For Create The Hebrew word bara (translated create) may imply creation out of nothing. Likewise, just as the shaft of the candlestick joins the six branches together and makes them one unified candlestick–so too the אֵת particle joins the six Hebrew words together and makes them one unified verse. 11:24). The central shaft is a perfect hybrid of the two opposing yet complimentary sides that it joins together into one body, and it is therefore colored purple to convey this blended nature (blue + red = purple).1 This very meticulous pattern and peculiar numbering system will begin to make a lot more sense when we start to examine the seven days of creation in a future discussion. Indeed, the mystery of Genesis 1:1 will take on a whole new level of significance and make a lot more sense once we start to get into the seven days of creation in a future lesson. It is amazing that the Bible does not start with some philosophical argument about the existence of God. What might be the reason for this? What is significant about that? He has an academic background in history, classical literature, and biblical studies; and possesses a peculiar gift for understanding and explaining the deeper mysteries of the Holy Bible. A number of years ago, I heard a noted New Testament scholar relate a story about teaching a Sunday school class. Gen 1:3,5. Note that just as the central shaft functions as what we might call a “joiner,” in that it joins the three branches on either side of it together as one unified candlestick–so too the accusative particle אֵת (which just so happens to be situated right smack dab in the middle of the verse), functions as a joiner which unifies the former half of the sentence (containing the subject and transitive verb) with the latter half of the sentence (containing the direct objects). This is good for sharing and manual creation. Genesis 1:1 – The First Verse of the First Chapter of the First Book of the Bible. 1 And the whole earth was of one language and of one speech. However, by the end of this study, we will see how the supreme intelligence behind the mathematical design of Genesis 1:1/John 1:1 also incorporated the "ORDINAL" values within their mathematical design as well. The traditional translation of Genesis 1:1 is well known, “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” It is called the traditional translation because it has been the dominant rendering of Genesis 1:1 since the Greek Septuagint, the first major translation of the Hebrew Bible (into Greek), produced by Jewish scholars in the third century BC. beginning.

Although the shaft stands completely apart from and is incomparable to any of the six branches that it unites, and is a perfect equal blend of the two antithetical yet complimentary natures of both sides, (as signified by its purple color)—in the 4-3 divisional schema it always gets counted with branches 1, 2, and 3. Accordingly, if we begin at lamp #1 and try to read all seven Hebrew words in a continuous right to left sequence, everything would be fine until we got beyond the shaft, at which point it would appear as if the last three words of the verse were read in the reverse order (“the earth and the heavens,” rather than “the heavens and the earth”). Well, there are a total of 28 letters in the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1. Obviously, this could not have been a coincidence, and it further proves that the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1 have been divinely patterned according to the seven arms of the golden candlestick. It seems all that Hebrew talk about the Hebrew Scriptures muddles the clarity of their view of those verses – the one that keeps their ministry ship afloat. פרק . The ancient system of assigning numerical values to the letters of the Hebrew/Greek alphabets is called the "STANDARD" values. Note also that the opposing yet complimentary natures of the branches to the left of the shaft and the branches to the right of the shaft is reflected in the grammatical function of the three words to the left of the אֵת particle and the three words to the right of the אֵת particle. The English translation of Genesis 1:1-5 follows, as well as a comparative Key of Hebrew and English. Genesis 1:1, ESV: "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." When the seven words are arranged according to their seven lamps, we just so happen to get these exact same percentages when we divide the verse by the total number letters in the words corresponding to their lamps, as we do when we divide the golden candlestick by its lamps. In this lesson we have seen how the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1 have been deliberately modeled in the likeness of the golden candlestick. However, because it is directly relevant to the mystery of the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1, I want to go ahead at least give a bare bones introduction to this very important mystery regarding the golden candlestick’s design. It is thus as if the words corresponding to lamps 1, 2, 3, and 7 are flowing in accordance with their natural orientation, while the words corresponding to lamps 4, 5, and 6 have been “grafted in” to the opposite side of the golden candlestick contrary to their nature (Rom. If you believe & trust Genesis 1:1 as true, you should be able to trust that the rest of the Bible is true. This is Genesis 1:1 in Hebrew: בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ׃ If you take the word for “son” in Hebrew (בר) and the word for “I make” (אשית) and put them together, you have the first word of the Scriptures: “in the beginning” (בראשית).John 1:1-3 (KJV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Genesis 1-24. Therefore the idea of creation out of nothing may be implied in Genesis 1:1.

The Torah, the first five books of the Bible, in Ancient Hebrew and with a transliteration. Genesis 1-27. Accordingly, it is necessary that we acquaint ourselves with the general pattern of the golden candlestick and the meticulous numbering system of its seven lamps, as this very meticulous design is intimately bound up with the mystery of the seven Hebrew words of Genesis 1:1. 1 Behold: As can be seen, there are a total of 16 letters in the four words corresponding lamps 1, 2, 3, and 7; while there are a total of 12 letters in the three words corresponding to lamps 4, 5, and 6. Bummer. At one point, one of the students in the class asked, “What does it say in the Greek?” The teacher’s response was, “The same thing it says in the English.” His point was not that there is no difference between Greek and English; only that in that passage the English gave an accurate and adequate presentation of the Greek.
