THE FIRST CIVILIZATION
(4=Daleth, “in this world in this time”)
Why was life in the Garden of Eden different?
What does the Hebrew Alphabet Number System reveal about God’s plan in creating Adam and Eve?
Was genetic manipulation the reason for Noah’s flood?
Will modern genetic manipulation move God to destroy our civilization, too?
When I began to research the Apocalypse, I discovered what I call the Bible’s Rosetta Stone. The understanding this discovery gave me revealed another dimension in Adam and Eve’s garden experience. Not even Christians have ever heard about it. I guarantee that this chapter will open up a new understanding of the early history of humanity as recorded in the Old Testament.
The destruction of the first civilization by the Flood was necessary for the survival of humanity. By learning why God judged the first civilization, we will gain insight into why He will judge our present civilization. The reasons are basically the same: a world committed to rebellion against its Creator. Just as He did not spare the pre-Flood society, so God will again put his mortal children through a time of trial and testing to purge out the evil and perfect the faithful. A lot more is explained in my second book, Mystery of Tammuz 17.
To give you a visual perspective of God’s plan for humanity, I have overlaid the calendar dates with the Hebrew Alphabet Number System in a table that shows how they fit together:
This chapter will describe the beginning of people and explain the reason for our existence on earth.
The plan of God for humanity is the central theme of the Bible. Most unbelievers cannot come up with a rational, intelligent reason for our existence on this planet. They cannot understand why death, suffering and poverty are so prevalent. Some religions preach reincarnation, coming back in another life—perhaps even as an animal. Others claim that we dissolve into nothingness when we die. Only the Bible gives a clear, rational answer to our questions about life after death. That is because the stories in the Bible are not the invention of man's imagination but revelation from God, who is intensely interested in us.
Because God is a gentleman, He will not force us to love or accept Him. And yet He sustains all of His creation and provide us everything we need for life through nature. If we are in bad shape, we can only blame ourselves. We prefer to follow evil and so become entangled in false religions rather than listen to the Prince of Peace.
The only way a person can journey beyond the grave is if he follows God's outlined path. If he does not, his life will end. And hell is a place you do not want to go to. Even Christians must pay if we transgress God's laws.
Contrary to the theory of evolution taught in most schools today, the Bible tells us that Adam and Eve were created. Based on Scripture, I believe this first human couple had super intelligence, inquisitive minds and a strong curiosity to investigate their environment. God placed them in a beautiful, protected garden in which to mature. He came to the garden to meet with Adam and Eve every day in the cool of the evening. In these wonderful times together God and man exchanged ideas and experienced friendship and fellowship. The first human couple could not have had a more perfect teacher.
The Scriptures do not tell us how many years this innocent, sin-free relationship between God and the first couple lasted. We can estimate it by looking at how the Hebrew Alphabet Number System overlays with the 7,000-Year Table of Human History.
The 7,000-Year Table shows twelve cycles of 490 years (based on the Hebrew system of sevens (490 being 7 x 70). I arrived at the beginning date for this table by starting with the year the First Temple in Jerusalem was destroyed (588 BC). Then, I counted backward seven (7) cycles of Hebrew years to 4018 BC. Converting this to our time, the creation of Adam would have been about 4068 BC.
I kept the 7,000-Year Table in Hebrew years because the numbers reveal hidden truths that would otherwise be lost if we converted them to our years and because our secular, solar years do not overlay with the prophetic chronologies. Besides, any attempt to date events prior to the Flood is almost pure conjecture. The earth’s geological and astronomical contexts were quite different from our times. We can only speculate about the length of the solar years during the pre-Flood world. The best guess is 360 days because that length predominates in ancient calendars. (Click for more information.)
The 7,000-Year Table of Human History will be explained more in detail later, but for now we will refer to the above Book #1 Chapter-Age Alignment table. Let’s focus our attention on the Zayin Age of human history.
We will start with the famous story of Adam and Eve. Almost everybody in the world has heard about it – even those who are educated to ignore it. That is not very smart, really. Here we will learn another viewpoint, one that emerges from the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. It adds another perspective you may not have heard about, especially if you are a Christian without a background in the Old Testament.
After some years of an innocent, sin-free relationship with God, Adam and Eve were tested. God forbade them to eat from the fruit of the tree that would give them the knowledge of good and evil. But Satan tempted Adam and Eve to disobey God’s command.
The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. And the Lord God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.” (Genesis 2:15-17)
Adam and Eve failed the test. They deliberately chose the way of the flesh. As soon as they sinned, they lost their brilliant bodies. God expelled them from the safe environment of a fenced garden to a life of hard work and suffering in the struggle to survive in a hostile world. Their carefree life in pleasant surroundings and daily fellowship with God was lost.
The first couple was kicked out of the garden when they were about sixty-five years of age. Early man lived much longer than we do today, so Adam was just coming into his prime childbearing age at the time of the expulsion.
After the first couple disobeyed God , their physical bodies became naked:
Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they realized they were naked; so they sewed fig leaves together and made coverings for themselves. (Genesis 3:7)
I believe that being daily in God’s presence made Adam and Eve glow like a bright light. This light covered their natural bodies. When sin entered their souls, through their disobedience and rebellion against God’s commandment, their covering of light disappeared and they were “naked.”
I base this belief on a similar phenomenon recorded in other places in the Bible. Moses’ face radiated when he came down from the mountain after having been in God’s presence. (Exodus 34:33) Jesus at the Mount of Transfiguration exhibited the same luminescence. (Matthew 17:2) God’s presence apparently causes a physical change in the composition of the body. Satan, while in the daily presence of God, was called Lucifer, which means “light-bearing, brilliant, shining one.” Now he is known by other names.
As a result of their act of disobedience, Adam and Eve became part of the pre-existing fallen world, subject to God’s predetermined plan. They were now destined for death, which will end in judgment.
When God expelled Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden, He promised them a Redeemer and and Reconciler who would restore them and their descendants to their former relationship of direct fellowship. When Eve gave birth to her son, Cain - the first baby of the human race, she was full of hope.
The Bible records her words: "With the help of the Lord I have brought forth a man." (Genesis 4:1) She believed Cain would be the redeemer who would get them all back to the five-based dimension.
But God's plan calls for many children to be born and die in the seven-based dimension. [The seven (7) and five (5) based dimensions will be explained shortly below and is described in more detail in my second book, Mystery of Tammuz 17].
In John 3:7 Jesus said, "You must be born again." How can this be? Death comes in two stages. Most of us will see the "first death" at the end of our natural lives in our physical bodies. The "second death" will occur during the Great White Throne judgment at the end of the time dimension.
If we are "born again" (born into the five-based dimension), we will immediately be transformed into eternal life – even though our bodies remain within the physical or natural world of the material (Daleth = in this world in this time), which is programmed to die. Those who are not "born again" will remain in the death cycle, and their souls will end up in the lake of fire. These concepts of eternal life will become much more understandable as more facts are brought to light throughout the book. For example, in Chapter 6 we learn that people have two birthdays and connect this fact with a butterfly’s life cycle.
After Adam and Eve realized that Cain would not be their redeemer, they had to start carving out a life for themselves and their children in the seven-based dimension. This was not an easy task, but God himself had educated Adam. Both of them were extremely bright, and I think that Adam was probably ten times more intelligent than Dr. Albert Einstein. Adam taught the skills he learned to his children and grandchildren. Being quite industrious, they became inventors of tools and musical instruments. They even manufactured iron, which is an extremely complex process.
The early family structure of the human race permitted more than one wife, although it was never the ideal. (Matthew 19:4-9) Some modern cultures continue to do so, but most westerners do not want to hear about. It is interesting to note that the Bible does not specifically forbid this practice; otherwise it would have been mentioned here. Lamech, in the sixth generation from Adam, was the first polygamist on record. Only four women are recorded before the flood: Eve (Adam's wife), Adah and Zillah (Lamech's wives), and Naamah (Lamech's daughter):
Lamech married two women, one named Adah, and the other Zillah. Adah gave birth to Jabal; he was the father of those who live in tents and raise livestock. His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all who play the harp and flute. Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain's sister was Naamah. (Genesis 4:19-22)
The Five-based and Seven-based Systems
The following text will be a little discussion about how to apply my “Rosetta Stone” discovery to the Garden of Eden experience. The sinless existence of Adam and Eve in the midst of an idyllic garden, where death and decay did not take place, has caused much debate and confusion among Christian and Jewish theologians. I cannot remotely remember hearing this subject discussed during any Sunday school I ever attended.
Many Christian scholars mistakenly blame a fallen creation on Adam and Eve, as if God made an error and didn’t know what would happen with His creation. The Hebrew Alphabet Number System gives us better insights into the mysteries of the first couple’s early experiences.
In my second book, Mystery of Tammuz 17, I describe what I call my “Rosetta Stone” discovery. Like the multiple languages in parallel delivery of one message found on the ancient Egyptian stone tablet, multiple dimensions of reality co-existed in the Garden of Eden story, too. One of these parallel dimensions is organized on a five-based system, and the other is structured on a seven-based system. The Apocalypse is understood in a much better light once we become more familiar with this concept.
Together these two dimensions, one five-based and the other seven-base, make up what I call heaven’s binary code. When God created Adam and Eve, He placed them in the Garden of Eden. The Hebrew letters for “ Eden” are Ayin-Daleth-Nun (70-4-50). This can be interpreted as the dual nature of God’s presence (Ayin = the sum total of this world) in the midst of the natural world and one of a higher level 5 or 50). In other words, God (Aleph, 1 = “eternal God”) created an island of the heavenly (Heh, 5 = “the other side” five-based or Nun, the promised land) dimension in the midst of the earthly (Daleth, 4 = “this world in this time” seven-based) dimension, but this arrangement was temporary being limited (sum total 70) to the age of Zayin on earth.
As long as Adam and Eve remained in the Garden of Eden, they lived in a dimension where the effects of time in the Zayin age were suspended, but after they disobeyed God’s direct command, they became mortal and had to leave, because in the Heh dimension God will not tolerate sin in His presence .
The Garden of Eden was like an autonomously operating ecosystem or mini-environment enclosed under a dimensional dome or force field of Heh. Inside, everything operated on the wavelength of eternity – as it is in heaven. Outside the Garden, everything God had created existed in the time dimension (Daleth).
Since the Daleth dimension of time (Satan’s domain) is subject to decay and aging, God embedded within it the life-death-procreation cycle that we are all familiar with. This outside world (also referred to as the seven-based dimension) was subjected to Satan. God’s purpose for this was to prove that Satan’s accusations were wrong and that rebellion against a holy God is against a person’s best interests. The seven-based Daleth dimension has been and remains the stage where the principles of good and evil are acted out.
God visited Adam and Eve in the garden, a five-based Heh dimension zone, every day in the cool of the evening. God warned them that the Daleth dimension outside the garden belonged to Satan's domain. When God was absent, Satan was permitted to roam about in the Garden looking for ways to defeat God’s purposes. Satan was God’s reluctant agent in putting Adam and Eve to the test. From his perspective, Satan simply tried to derail God’s plan and destroy the beautiful relationship that the new arrivals enjoyed with God.
God had created two special trees that produced unique fruit. He placed them side by side in the Garden. The Tree of Knowledge bore fruit that led to a natural fleshly procreated life, and the Tree of Life bore fruit that led to an eternal life characteristic of the five-based heavenly dimension: eating this fruit would give man the ability to exist forever in the Heh dimension, what we call eternal life.
The Tree of Knowledge offered the seven-based Daleth dimension of sexually procreated life, but it came with an added package of experiencing good and evil. This package was like hidden dynamite. God warned them "of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall die." (Genesis 2:17 NRSV)
God should have been the only source of knowledge for defining what is good or evil. I am sure He instructed Adam about those mysterious trees, so that Adam would not need to experience evil in order to know what it was. In a sense, Satan’s message was that eating from the tree would give a person independence from God. People could decide for themselves what is good and even what God is like. “You don’t need to ask God about that!” said Satan. “You can do it your way! It’s your right of free will!” Thus, we humans have ever since naturally sought the answers to life’s big questions on our own without submitting to God’s will. Instead, we rely on our own individual and collective mortal intellect and inquisitive creativity.
God gave Adam and Eve a choice. They could stay in Eden, in the heavenly Heh, “the other side” - five-based dimension and have continued fellowship with God, or they could choose the seven-based, flesh - Daleth dimension which also would mean separation from God. Because Eden was like a domed bubble surrounded by the seven-based dimension subject to the principles and physical laws of nature created for the earth’s (Daleth - 4 “in this world in this time”) biosphere, Adam and Eve could look across the invisible barrier separating these two dimensions and observe what happened outside the Garden.
Even though they were created in the five-based heavenly dimension, they could see that the seven-based earthly or flesh dimension was subject to the laws of life and death. I believe the tree from the seven-based (flesh) dimension was an intense temptation for Eve, because it involved the principle of physical procreation. Her body was designed to procreate, and watching the animals having babies made entering the flesh dimension very desirable.
The flesh dimension, which offered procreation, was even attractive to the rebellious angels that had been cast out of heaven for following Satan. The Bible reports that before Noah's time, fallen angels in some manner procreated with the daughters of men. In order to do so, they had to leave the heavenly dimension and join the fleshly one, although God strictly forbade this activity.
Enoch, an eyewitness who lived before the Flood, said that angels who did so are held in chains in the underworld because they left their first estate and rebelled against the established order. (Jude 6) Thousands of years later, Jesus taught that angels in heaven do not marry. After our resurrection, when we return to the heavenly dimension, we will not marry either because we will be like the angels in heaven. (Matthew 22:30; Mark 12:25)
Eve in particular watched the animals in the seven-based time dimension having babies, and she longed to be a part of that world. Satan took advantage of her desire. Once he found out that Eve was vulnerable, he embellished on the superiorities of the seven-based dimension. Remember, Satan is a master of manipulation: he had previously convinced one third of heaven's population to side with him in rebellion against God's plan and rule.
Satan convinced Eve that by choosing the fruit of the seven-based dimension, they would be better off. He implied that they would become just like God, creators of new life forms that were just as good as what God had created, lasting forever. Adam and Eve could improve on what God had already pronounced “very good.” Eternal life would be achieved by sexual procreation, thereby circumventing God's warning that death would follow from eating the fruit from the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
"You surely will not die," Satan lied. Eve did not know how big a deceiver Satan was, is and always will be. She succumbed to this powerful temptation from this beautiful, upright-walking serpent. It did not occur to Eve that her act would spoil God's intimate fellowship with man and derail His plan for humanity.
Although Eve understood full well that she was disobeying God's command, she believed that God had the power to fix anything, so surely He could take care of any mistake she might make. She enjoyed the five-based (heavenly) dimension but longed for the seven-based (flesh) dimension as well. So why not “have it all” and live in both dimensions? She wanted the best of both worlds, to "have her cake and eat it too," as we say today. She figured God would simply join the two dimensions together for her benefit.
Thousands of years later, we can see that Eve's reasoning was not too far off, but it conflicted with God's plan for this world. Moreover, her disobedience violated the trust relationship she had with God and Adam. Yet God will honor the sincerely good aspects of her fateful desire. After the time of the Apocalypse Eve’s descendents will be living in the five-based and the seven-based dimensions simultaneously as described towards the end of this book.
Adam was happy in the five-based dimension. It was no big deal to him that the fruit of one tree was forbidden. He was learning, directly from God about how the universe works, and the Lord kept him busy naming and cataloging the animals and plants. However, Adam was in love with the woman God had created for him. When she told him she'd eaten the forbidden fruit and encouraged him to do the same, he faced a difficult decision.
His wife was now in the seven-based (flesh) dimension. The radiant light that used to emanate from her body had disappeared. She was different, naked, with a body that had become subject to time’s decay. She would eventually get old, shrivel and die. If Adam remained in the Garden, he would remain young and vigorous forever. After watching Eve get old and die he would again be alone, without a companion of his kind.
He also felt a powerful need to care for his wife, who was built from his own flesh. He couldn't just leave her unprotected in that dangerous, hostile world she had chosen. Some angel would certainly find her and take her away from him. So Adam also chose to disobey God's commandment in order to please his companion/helpmate and to avoid being separated from her.
After their acts of disobedience Adam and Eve hid from God when He next visited the Garden. Adam loved his woman Eve so much that he would have died for her. He pleaded with God to let him redeem her, but God said, "No. I am going to be the Redeemer."
This separation of fellowship was the price of their insubordination. They had experienced evil, and their guilty conscience had been activated. They now belonged to the Zayin seven-based dimension, where the curses of Satan’s domain of deception—pain, sickness, tears, war, and death—awaited them instead of his lie about an eternal life of powerful bliss.
And the Lord God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever." So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. (Genesis 3:22-23)
Adam and Eve were exiled from the Garden, and two cherubim angels accompanied them to the entrance, which now became the exit guarded by a flaming sword that turned this way and that. This sword told them that the way to the tree of eternal life would be met with the tools of the Zayin seven-based dimension (7 = Zayin, which means "sword, strife").
Zayin is the age of historical and prophetic time when humanity experiences life as an inseparable blend of good and evil under Satan’s dominion. The pain and trials suffered during this Zayin age stretch out over all of human history.
On the way to the Garden’s exit God also pronounced a curse on Satan, who was still disguised as a beautiful serpent. From that time forward, the serpent would no longer be an attractive creature; he would eat the dust of the earth. One cannot get lower than the dust of the ground.
The seven-based dimension is embedded with principles of earthly nature by design. The Daleth "world in this time" will one day end because the earth was created to be only temporary. God announced that before the seven-based (flesh) dimension ends, the head of Satan will be permanently crushed and his power broken forever!But Satan’s defeat would come at a steep price, to be paid by Eve's seed. The Son from her, who was to become their Redeemer, would suffer intense pain inflicted on Him by the serpent. God himself would feel that pain. In the future there would be another garden, the Garden of Gethsemane and an olive grove where this Redeemer, shrouded in humanity, would experience a trial so intense that an angel would have to come and strengthen Him. (Luke 22:39-43)
Realizing that the temptation Eve faced had proven stronger than her desire to please God, the Lord told Eve, "You will bear children, and your pain in childbearing will greatly increase. I could have satisfied your desire, if you had come to me, but you did not." (Genesis 3:16, my paraphrase) Even today, many women pray to God for deliverance during the pangs of childbirth.
In time the Garden of Eden became hidden by the surrounding overgrowth of vegetation and trees disappearing from the human family's sight and knowledge. The forbidden tree of the seven-based dimension rotted and died. The pristine, five-based dimension Garden and the Tree of Life were transplanted in the city of God, the suspended Satellite City. (A description of this pyramid-shaped city is found in the last chapters of the Bible and in my second book, Mystery of Tammuz 17).
The leaves of the Tree of Life contain powerful drugs that can heal incurable diseases in the seven-based dimension on earth. People who are born after the Apocalypse will have access to that tree. The resurrected saints will collect these healing leaves from the Tree of Life and give them to people on earth who need them. (Revelation 22:2)
The five-based heavenly dimension is still a choice today for many people on earth. It is available as a free gift. The past is cast in concrete, but your future is not. What will you choose?
Just as the Hebrew letter Daleth represents the number four (4). God's plan has four supporting pillars in the Daleth dimension to encompass all of human history. These four pillars are two men and two women. The Bible describes them as:
The first Adam (from the seven-based flesh dimension)
The second Adam, Jesus Christ (from the five-based heavenly dimension)
The first woman, Eve, - whose son, Cain, was the firstborn of the seven-based (flesh) dimension
The woman Mary, - whose son, Jesus, was the firstborn of the five-based (heavenly) dimension.
Cain was born under Satan's dominion, the seven-based dimension. He became a murderer, a life-taker. (Genesis 4:8) By the Holy Spirit Mary conceived and gave birth to Jesus, the Redeemer. He became the life-giver from the five-based dimension. Although Jesus was born of a fleshly mother, He was born without sin because His Father was God. While Adam was a created son, Jesus is the begotten Son. His spiritual heritage was from the Tree of Life and not from the Tree of Knowledge. Paul tells us:
Thus it is written, "The first man, Adam, became a living being"; the last Adam became a life-giving spirit. But it is not the spiritual that is first, but the physical, and then the spiritual. The first man was from the earth, a man of dust; the second man is from heaven.
As was the man of dust, so are those who are of the dust; and as is the man of heaven, so are those who are of heaven. Just as we have borne the image of the man of dust, we will also bear the image of the man of heaven. (1Corinthians 15:45-49 NRSV)
This Bible passage, like the railroad track with two rails (the Hebrew and Christian traditions), reveals God's purpose for creating people born to the flesh dimension of Daleth ("this world in this time"). Eve will get her wish in the future. God will honor her dream and make it a reality. The five-based system will be joined with the seven-based system after 2018. God will join both dimensions for the benefit of humanity – just as they were joined in Jesus. He planned all along that the future saints would live simultaneously in the earthly (of mortal flesh) seven-based dimension and in the heavenly five-based dimension (eternal resurrected life) during the third civilization just like it was in the beginning.
The heavenly Jerusalem from the Heh dimension will be in orbit over the land of Israel. Only the firstborn (who are the resurrected saints, as explained in detail later) will have access to the heavenly city, which will connect the five-based dimension with the seven-based dimension. The Garden experience with its intimate fellowship with God will be restored and continue until the Teth Age is ended. No longer silent, God will reside in a beautifully reconstructed and holy temple located in Jerusalem during the Teth Age. The eternal God, who created the universe, with billions of extraterrestrial (angelic) beings at His command, will again reside on this finitely tiny planet below the extremities of the Milky Way and fellowship with mortal beings made whole.
After the Apocalypse, the seven-based dimension will continue for another thousand years during the Teth Age, but Satan will no longer have dominion over it because he will be bound in the depths of the abyss. At the end of the millennium, Satan will be cast into the lake of fire along with his victims: lost human beings and corrupted angels called demons.
The Hebrew language adds another perspective to understanding the biblical account of the Garden of Eden. Because it was God-given, Hebrew was the only language to survive the flood, and buried within the language’s alphanumeric structure lies an undiscovered treasure for those who are philosophically inclined.
When we read Bible translations in other languages, we usually get only one level of understanding. Being able to read the Bible in its original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek languages enriches our comprehension. This is particularly true with the books written in the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek languages because it possesses another level embedded within its structure—a numeric system that reveals interpretative relationships between words, concepts and prophetic revelation of God’s plans for humanity.
The rich nuances of poetic power and concurrent streams of communication contained in the original Hebrew cannot be fully translated. Uncovering the informational gems of biblical Hebrew becomes a separate investigation for those seeking deeper spiritual insights from the infinite Word of God. It is a treasure hunt for scholars at all levels of competency.
I am not educated in the depths of Hebrew or its alphabet-number system, but I still get excited when I find a new pearl that further illuminates the Word of God. While writing this book, I became excited when I discovered some new idea, perspective or confirmation of the “clock gears” within my continuing study of biblical Hebrew.
I hope you will not get too frustrated about what might appear to be strange symbolism. If it seems a little confusing at first, don’t worry. Remember, effective communication is a special gift, and knowledge comes in small chunks, like one brick or stone is added to another to build a house. The clock gears are explained in my second book, Mystery of Tammuz 17.
Now, let’s check out some of the interesting Hebrew numbers I discovered.
You will now be exposed a little to what lays buried within the Hebrew Alphabet Number System. If you do not understand it at first, just read anyway and follow the text. It is only a few pages long. It is important for you to see a sample of how the Bible as a Hebrew book communicates in various levels of understanding. Through it, we can gain insights about God’s plan for humanity and the future universe. It is partly from these kinds of insights that I discovered the dating of the Apocalypse.
The names of the first human couple are significant. The Hebrew concept for Adam and Eve is spelled Aleph-Daleth-Mem-Taw. According to the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, this can be numerically expressed as 1-4-40-400. Thus, the first couple was created by God (1) to live in "this world in this time" (4) and to die (40); all human life is terminated at the end of this world (Taw = 400).
The name for man, a created being (Adam), overlays with the ancient Hebrew Alphabet Number System and is spelled Aleph-Daleth-Mem. According to the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, this can be numerically translated as 1-4-40. Eve's attributes, as the feminine side of creation, express the capacity for fleshly procreation. These attributes are communicated with (4-40-400).
Notice the repetition of the Daleth (4 = meaning "this world in this time) and Mem (40 = “giving it purpose”) in both names. The initial (Aleph = 1) creation model of Adam (1 = Aleph) is extended through the addition of Eve. The time dimension is limited and will come to a purposeful end (as expressed with 400 = Taw, meaning "cross"). Human life will be terminated at the end of this world (Taw = 400, meaning "cross" - a concept that encompasses the outer region of the existence of the material world).
Adam's name starts with Aleph (1), which represents the eternal God, the Creator. God is the beginning of man's existence. Notice that the woman's name (Daleth-Mem-Taw) does not contain the one (Aleph = 1), because she was formed out of Adam. God did not use dust from the ground to create Eve and then breathe life (ruach) into her, as He did with Adam. Instead, He used genetic material from Adam's side (a rib).
Eve was fashioned from Adam, being molded into a woman. In the joining of male and female, “life” could be renewed through physical rebirth, seemingly forever. What is remarkable is that women have significantly more genetic material in their chromosomes than men. In fashioning Eve, God looked forward into all of time and especially to the promised seed.
When a duck landed on my pond recently, I recognized the same duck Adam saw on his pond. The life form of the duck has not changed in 6,000 years. But Adam-Eve compound name ends with Taw=400, which indicates that all life created for the Daleth dimension will at some predetermined point come to an end. The continuous cycles of mortal life may seem like time will never end, but it will by God’s hand as signified with the letter Taw
God did not name Adam's wife. He simply called her "woman" (Ish-ah) because she was created out of man (Ish). The word woman is spelled with the letters Aleph-Shin-Heh (1-300-5). It differs from the letters used for man (Ish), which is spelled Aleph-Jod-Shin (1-10-300). Where as the Aleph-Jod (1-10) in “man” (Ish) indicates a God-given responsibility for his wife, they will both find divine completeness (Shin = 300, 3 x 100) together. The final Heh in Ish-ah signifies that mankind's hope for immortality, his window to the other side, will one day come through a child born of the woman. Meanwhile, humanity's continuity will also come about through the birth of children.
After the Fall Adam gave Eve her name. (Genesis 3:7) "Eve" is spelled Cheth-Waw-Heh (8-6-5). Numerically, this expresses the concept that through Eve, a new creation will come (8 = Cheth, "a new beginning" or "a new creation") connecting the flesh (6 = Waw, "connect" or "flesh") to eternity (5 = Heh, "the other side").
Thus, humanity’s hope for continuity in what may be seen is found in the birth of children, but the name, Eve, (Cheth-Waw-Heh, 8-6-5) emphasizes that the hope of “all-living” truly lies in the lost and unseen eternity prophetically alluded to in Genesis 3:15. Thus, the numeric expression of “Eve” could be translated as: “Through her will come a new beginning, a new creation (8) to connect the flesh (6) to the eternity of the other side (5).”
And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; He shall bruise [crush] you on the head, and you shall bruise him on the heel. (Genesis 3:15 NASB)
The combination name of Adam and Eve (Aleph-Daleth-Mem-Taw) is symbolically representative for all of humanity. Remember that the letters of their joined attributes produce the alphanumeric sentence of Aleph-Daleth-Mem-Taw or 1-4-40-400. This combined name may be expressed in words as:
Mankind was created by God (1) to live in this world in this time (4), to die (40), but cannot live beyond the end of this world or universe (400).” He needs to get acquainted with numbers of 5-50-500, which is connected with rebirth, resurrection and eternal life.
If we reach physical death (40) without being connected (Waw) with the eternal Life-giver, Jesus Christ, we will encounter spiritual and physical death (400). The unrepentant dead have no name in the Book of Life (Revelation 20:12) or the Book of Truth (Daniel 10:21). In the spiritual realm, they are nameless, as if they had never existed. Chapter 6 provides more information about this subject under the heading, The Number 666.
This hope for a divine Son of a mortal woman to redeem fallen people from God’s judgment of mortality and death is evidenced by Eve’s pronouncement at the birth of Cain in Genesis 4:1. Literally translated from the Hebrew, Eve expresses her belief that God has already fulfilled His promise to her with the birth of her first son when she declares Cain to be the LORD (Yahweh).
Now the man had relations with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain, and she said, “I have gotten a manchild with the help of the LORD.” (Genesis 4:1 NASB)
[Note: The words “with the help of” found in most Bibles between “child” and “the LORD” are in italics, meaning that they are not in the original Hebrew text but have been added by the translator to facilitate the understanding of the verse. It should read “I have gotten a manchild the (promised) Lord.]
IMPORTANT: the expression “her seed” in Genesis 3:15 is an impossible paradox that foreshadows the virgin birth because by definition “seed” is the sperm of the male, which is naturally absent from the female. In the virgin birth of Jesus the Holy Spirit miraculously substituted for the life generating functions of the sperm. (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:35; John 1:12-14)
In this way a future child Jesus was born of God and a mortal human woman without the seed of a man. The apostle Paul referred to Jesus as a miraculous "second Adam" who can restore to each person the free choice of the Tree of Life through faith in Him. (1Corinthians 15:14-15, 45-48)
Jesus, the incarnate God of the universe was born as a necessary mediator for humanity in the Daleth dimension. A mediator who belongs to each dimension is also operative in both dimensions. Jesus was the doorway between the two, like in my illustration of a mirror.
The mirror shows only the reflection of the real thing positioned in front of it. In my analogy, the reflection is our material world where we live, and it is called in the Hebrew system Daleth because it belong to this time “this world” represented by the number four. What we do in the material world reflects the spiritual reality of who we are from God’s perspective in heaven – the Heh dimension.
Jesus came to earth from the real side of the mirror - Heh “the other side,” as expressed by the number five. His life was more like a window than a mirror because whatever Jesus did during the years between His birth and death on earth directly revealed the heavenly (Heh) realities of the five-based dimension. His life directly impacted and changed not only things in the Daleth dimension (salvation for mankind – our world), but also things in heaven. Later I will discuss these heavenly things in more detail.
Therefore Jesus answered and was saying to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.
“For the Father loves the Son, and shows Him all things that He Himself is doing; and the Father will show Him greater works than these, so that you will marvel.
“For just as the Father raises the dead and gives them life, even so the Son also gives life to whom He wishes. For not even the Father judges anyone, but He has given all judgment to the Son, so that all will honor the Son even as they honor the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him. (John 5:19-23)
“I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. “If I alone testify about Myself, My testimony is not true. There is another who testifies of Me, and I know that the testimony which He gives about Me is true.” (John 5:30-33 See also John 8:19, 23-26, 38; 14:6-15)
From the hour of His resurrection to our present time, Jesus is working the will of God through His human counterpart on earth, His disciples. We read in the Bible that after His resurrection that He walked, talked, ate, touched, and was handled by His faithful family and friends. (Luke 24:13-32, 36-41: John 20:27)
Altogether over 500 witnesses came together to meet Him. Even His half brothers at first would not believe Jesus was anything other than human before the resurrection. (1Corinthians 15:6-8) Jesus left this earth with a promise that He would He would return. The next time He comes will be w ith the Heh dimension power that will shake the earth.
Back to the garden experience. Adam, the first human, was created from humus – dirt, the elements of our material world. He came to life when His earthly body was infused with God’s breath or spirit. (Genesis 1:26-31) God said that humans were made in His image and after His likeness to rule over all of the earth’s creatures. (Genesis 2:15)
Adam was commanded by God to work and preserve the earth. It was his undeniable job. When God sets up the governing structures and laws of His creation, even He cannot change it afterwards. Nature was structured so that even the Creator must abide by it. If He didn’t, then the consequences would erupt into a chaos so severe that the earth would become uninhabitable, which is contrary to His purpose. (Isaiah 45:18; Genesis 17:17; Deuteronomy 7:9; John 10:35)
My covenant I will not violate, nor will I alter the utterance of My lips. Once I have sworn by My holiness. (Psalms 89:34-35)
When God desires to change things on earth – in the Daleth dimension, He must work through human agency of Adam and Eve and their descendents. They were given dominion of the earth from the beginning of their existence on earth. Humanity now has authority over all that has the breath of life in it. But because of Adam and Eve’s original sin , we must now share the dominion of the Daleth dimension with Satan.
God’s breath, which is “life,” in the Daleth dimension of this earth and time became polluted. All that is good has become inseparably mixed with evil as a result of choosing the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Thus, Satan became “the prince of the power of the air…now working in the sons of disobedience.” (Ephesians 2:2)
Adam and Eve’s sinful decision brought the penalty of death upon themselves and all of their descendants – us! And by the fear of death, Satan enslaves all nations, to the lowest level - the family and to every member of it. (Hebrews 2:15). As a result of getting mixed up with the serpent, every person needs to be redeemed because we are now naturally infected with evil and subject to death. God cannot do anything about it from the Heh dimension . The Father can only watch as our civilization rushes over the cliff of self-inflicted, devilishly driven, utter destruction.
The laws governing the Daleth dimension work blindly without exceptions. The Daleth system is incapable of mercy because its laws are automatically upheld by the unchanging Word of God. All of the power imbedded in nature and creation of the universe at His disposal can not be used unless we permit Him to work through us at our request by His Spirit. His incomprehensible and perfect love cannot save us without our willing decision to humbly petition our need.
In other words the Daleth dimension is also ruled by strict behavior laws, and Satan’s dominion enforces them. He records our actions constantly against an account in which we always become debtors. As life goes on, our debts increase, and the laws of the universe require payment to be made by our own deaths. The Daleth dimension was designed to end; with it will end everything that exists on earth as we know it.
On the other side (Heh) is found the balance of justice and the potential for total mercy. It can provide forgiveness of every debt of sin and death. Jesus’ sacrifice can free us from the penalty that the law demands and the bondage of Satan’s domain. (Colossians 1:13; Hebrews 2:14) Each side is rigid, insisting on its own consistency for the universe to operate rationally and predictably. Every person is trapped by it, and we will all ultimately perish from the weight of the law’s demand. To bridge the deadly Daleth dimension and give man another chance, God has initiated a new contract or covenant that we can validate out of our free will. It gives us the opportunity to undo Adam and Eve’s original mistake and return to the Heh dimension of eternity.
Due to His innate nature of perfect love, God had no choice but to redeem humanity. The only way was to be born in the flesh (Daleth) dimension Himself: to be born of a woman in order to become the mediator as the GodSon. He first had to get our attention by opening our eyes to the realities of the heavenly Heh dimension. Secondly, He needed to bridge the impassable gap between Heh and the material reality of Daleth. This gap remains naturally impassable because of the laws at work in each dimension. Neither side can be unilaterally suspended, nor can they both be revoked without totally remaking the universe. The age of the New Heavens and New Earth to come is expressed in the Hebrew system by the Jod Age.
Two thousand years ago God was born in the Daleth dimension by a woman and revealed himself in a person of Jesus Christ in order to persuade people to turn from our wicked evil paths to Him. From the Hebrew perspective, God has kept His promises to Abraham and fulfilled both sides of the covenant from which eternal life springs. (Genesis 15:6, 17; Galatians 3:6-14)
Now people have a chance to be reborn. We can be free from the dominion of sin and death to effect changes for the good in this present age of the Daleth dimension. Because God himself became a man and was bruised for our transgressions, we may receive the indwelling reality of His Spirit in faith. This Spirit is our link to the Heh dimension and creates a new reality there that will be fulfilled at the return of Jesus when He rules the earth in the future. (Romans 8:9-17; I Corinthians 15:20-57)
Because of free will, people have the power to choose and to do as we please - for good or for evil. God now pleads with us to choose life by obeying what is written in the Bible. It is our only chance to undo Adam and Eve’s ancient mistake made because the GodSon paid the price for all our transgressions on the cross. Satan caused sin to enter the Daleth dimension by deceiving Eve and Adam, but God counteracts by being born of a woman to reverse the law of sin and death.
Therefore, just as through one man sin entered into the world, and death through sin, and so death spread to all men, because all sinned—for until the Law sin was in the world, but sin is not imputed when there is no law.
Nevertheless death reigned from Adam until Moses, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the offense of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come. But the free gift is not like the transgression. For if by the transgression of the one the many died, much more did the grace of God and the gift by the grace of the one Man, Jesus Christ, abound to the many.
The gift is not like that which came through the one who sinned; for on the one hand the judgment arose from one transgression resulting in condemnation, but on the other hand the free gift arose from many transgressions resulting in justification. For if by the transgression of the one, death reigned through the one, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness will reign in life through the One, Jesus Christ. So then as through one transgression there resulted condemnation to all men, even so through one act of righteousness there resulted justification of life to all men.
For as through the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, even so through the obedience of the One the many will be made righteous. The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more, so that, as sin reigned in death, even so grace would reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (Romans 5:12-21)
Jesus is the only mediator in this world and in this time dimension (Daleth) who broke the universe’s stalemate by paying the debts we all have accumulated through the sacrifice of His perfect life. To accept the life He offers is to choose the other side! If you do not, then the inevitable consequence of eternal death is certain.
When a person recognizes his or her need, he or she must ask the mediator-God for help. That is prayer. Only when man gives permission, can God act. Jesus said to His disciples that they would move mountains. This is an unbelievable feat in the Daleth dimension, but with the powerful help from the Heh dimension, there is no problem in moving mountains. All the forces of the heavenly dimension are at our disposal, provided that we ask in accordance with God’s perfect will.
Whatever you ask the father in heaven, He will do it! He is waiting to help because He loves us. But we cannot ask for anything that could turn to evil. We must ask in righteousness, having the mind of God. Prayer then becomes a powerful force by which changes can be made in the Daleth dimension. Through prayer, we ask and give Him permission to act in our lives according to His perfect love. If we do not have in this life, it is because we do not ask. (James 4:1-4) How big is God in your Daleth – Zayin existence?
While God yet pleads with words, soon He will express His displeasure with plagues. That is what the Apocalypse is all about: the repentance of all people. I have asked God in prayer that 100 million people would read my books about the Apocalypse so that they will be confronted with God’s offer of eternal life in an environment of beauty, joy and love. Maybe He will delay His judgment a little, just like He did with the city Nineveh in ancient times, when that whole city repented from the king on down to the lowest servant. Nineveh experienced a delay in the timing of its eventual destruction, which came later as history records.
My books also send a warning that you must pay your debt or else. Answers to prayers that seem impossible for me, exist within God’s power to perform. He loves us to give us surprises. Prayer is faith in action, provided it falls within God’s integrity and not violates His character or purposes. Satan was once very close to God, so he knows and understands the power of prayer as well as the other laws and principles of Creation. That is why he is so very effective as an adversary.
Fortunately, Satan is not all-knowing and cannot be everywhere at the same time. He hates fervent prayer the most because it is the power by which he can be defeated. He has tried for centuries to prevent God from being born in the human race. Since Jesus’ resurrection, he has worked effectively to prevent anyone from being born into God’s family. He is ruthless.
Satan will use any method to deflect, defeat, destroy or murder anyone anywhere around the world in order to prevent a God encounter. Christians and Jews are his preferred targets, but the Enemy has only limited power to mess up God’s good purposes for humanity during this Zayin age. His dominion will end when he is chained in the abyss under the earth at the end of the Apocalypse as described in Chapter 7.
Let’s now continue on the railroad train of humanity’s chronicle. The Flood wiped out all of human history, and very little is revealed about the first civilization in the Bible and in ancient history. Around the world many ancient myths tell much the same story but differ with each other according to the context of each particular culture. Often the apparent differences between the various folk tales about the worldwide Flood can be explained by the differences between their cultural settings.
I encourage you to read the biblical account of the great Flood, including the passages that describe the pre-Flood world. Scripture indicates that mankind reached a high level of technology, which has not been surpassed even today. Most of the evidence for that age was completely lost in the Flood, but we do know that these ancient technologies polluted the earth and included genetic aberrations that violated God's original design.
Rebellious angels cohabited with women to produce offspring with corruptly modified human genes. Gene splicing is also implied by ancient mythologies from around the world. Many of the old tales and myths may have originated in pre-Flood memories orally passed down from generation to generation. Some of these myths tell stories about half-human, half-animal bodies such as mermaids, sphinx-lion-men, bird- men and horse- men. Their likenesses can be seen in ancient Mesopotamian, Greek or Egyptian art and architecture.
The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.
The Lord saw how great man's wickedness on the earth had become, and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time. The Lord was grieved that He had made man on the earth, and His heart was filled with pain. So the Lord said, "I will wipe mankind, whom I have created, from the face of the earth—men and animals, and creatures that move along the ground, and birds of the air—for I am grieved that I have made them. (Genesis 6:4-7)
God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment …He did not spare the ancient world when He brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others…He condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly. (2Peter 2:4-6)
Only one family at that time found favor in the eyes of the Lord. One man and his wife were “unblemished,” which may be interpreted that their preceding generations had not been tampered with genetically. They were also “blameless” (Tamiym). The same Hebrew word was used to describe Abraham.
But Noah found favor in the eyes of the Lord. This is the account of Noah. Noah was a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God. Noah had three sons: Shem, Ham, and Japheth. (Genesis 6:8-10)
God told Noah:
I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth. So make yourself an ark of cypress wood; make rooms in it and coat it with pitch inside and out. (Genesis 6:13-14)
God gave Noah exact, specific instructions on how to make the ark, including dimensions, material and design. Then He gave Noah a prediction, a promise and an assignment:
I am going to bring floodwaters on the earth to destroy all life under the heavens, every creature that has the breath of life in it. Everything on earth will perish. But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons' wives with you.
You are to bring into the ark two of all living creatures, male and female, to keep them alive with you. Two of every kind of bird, of every kind of animal and of every kind of creature that moves along the ground will come to you to be kept alive. You are to take every kind of food that is to be eaten and store it away as food for you and for them. (Genesis 6:17-21)
Noah did everything just as God commanded him (verse 22). When the flood came, the entire world was destroyed except for the people and animals aboard the ark.
Most children's books depict Noah's ark as a flat boat with a house on top and animals looking out the windows. However, the Bible specifically mentions that there were no windows in the ark, and God sealed the only door from the outside (much like we do with space vehicles today).
In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, on the seventeenth day of the second month—on that day all the springs of the great deep burst forth, and the floodgates of the heavens were opened. And rain fell on the earth forty days and forty nights. (Genesis 7:11-12)
The biblical account of the Flood tells of a rending of the foundation of the world, which may have been effected by an asteroid impact. This caused mountains to be lifted up and resulted in a tremendous shift and breakup of the surface of the planet. The oceans would have experienced huge tidal waves bigger than the Christmas 2004 tsunami wave that devastated Asia when the media reported over 300,000 deaths with millions of people dislocated and businesses wiped out on a massive scale. To cause such tremendous global destruction as described in the Bible, the earth’s axis must have shifted during Noah’s Flood – perhaps up to 90 degrees. Only a partially submerged boat like the ark could have survived such a catastrophic event.
The Bible prophesies that a large asteroid will again hit the earth during the Apocalypse. This will cause many geological changes, but it will not be as dramatic as in Noah's time because God said He would never again destroy the earth with water. There will be thousands of survivors in every country to repopulate a peaceful planet.
Notice the date on which the Flood began: the seventeenth day of the second month in the six hundredth year of Noah's life. In the Hebrew Alphabet Number System, the number seventeen (17) represents "victory." The Flood may not seem like a victory from a human perspective, but God was correcting something that had gone totally wrong when sinful humans began to ruin His perfect world. The number two (2) corresponds to Beth, which means "this house" and can refer to the earth.
The number six hundred (600) is expressed as 100 x 6. One hundred represents Aleph, the one God, in three digits, which indicates the highest level of God's dominion. Six (6) is connected to Waw, which represents sin and the flesh. Through the Flood, God gained victory over the sin that had spread over the earth.
The World Cuckoo Clock in Chapter 10 shows a second marker of God’s judgment, which will be another time of major correction for this planet. Relatively little is revealed about the earth’s first worldwide destruction in the Bible, but it is enough to give us some insight about what lies ahead of us today. The historical and moral setting of the Flood could only be understood in our time due to modern advances in technology that rival the scientific accomplishments of the first civilization.
Of course many scholars disagree with the idea that an earlier civilization could have been as advanced as we are today, but that is due an education misinformed in the myths of evolution . Evolutionary theory creates barriers of bias that prevent people from acknowledging the abundant geological, archaeological and historical evidence of the Flood . This is true even when they are faced with a mountain of dependable data.
Comparing the present levels of manipulative genetic technology with ancient history, I came to the conclusion that if the advanced technologies of the pre - Floo d had not been stopped, that civilization would have caused irreversible damage to God’s creation on earth. Nature would have been permanently altered. You and I would not be on earth today, and the Bible would never have been written. God’s plan for humanity would have had to run a different course.
The Bible records Noah’s life as being toward the end of humanity’s first 1,715 years as counted from 4004 BC. This cycle is shown on the 7,000-Year Table of Human History. We casually look at numbers and really have no frame of reference what 1,715 years means. All of Western civilization since Roman times is close to 1,715 years, but our greatest advancements beyond anyone imaginations have come in the last 100 years. Our global population has tripled in my lifetime, and people have continually grown more wicked and evil. We have come to a juncture where God is looking at His fallen creation and saying:
"I am going to put an end to all people, for the earth is filled with violence because of them. I am surely going to destroy both them and the earth." (Genesis 6:13)
The coming Apocalypse will also be a time of corrective action: once again God is forced to preserve His original creation. So besides the issues of salvation and justice between humans and angels, one of the primary consequences of the Apocalypse will be to save our natural vegetables, plants and animals from disappearing. Modern humanity’s greed-driven biotech industry has introduced thousands of genetic changes into the ecosystem. Left unchecked, these changes could potentially damage and permanently destroy God’s original creation over the entire globe.
Unlike the days of Noah God will throw Satan out of office permanently this time. Yes, he will be released for a short time at the end of the Teth Age, but the earth will never again be messed up by evil people demonically driven to invent nuclear bombs or horribly unimaginable poisonous biological weapons of mass destruction.
God will stop the mad rush to destroy all. Later on I will use the analogy of birth to describe God’s plan. In that analogy the Apocalypse represents the labor pains out of which the new baby of the Kingdom of God is born. But the placenta that comes out with the baby is destroyed, and likewise will all of the evil that humans and demons have generated. Just as the placenta is cast away and the baby embraced, so will evil and its instigator be cast aside and God’s restored Kingdom embraced by all who have faith. It is our only hope for survival.
