I want you to see the unity of G-D through the unity of G-D’s Creation.
For if there be a G-D, HIS signature must surely be on all that HE has made, and there must be evidence that HE indeed, and no-one or nothing else, is responsible.
Now that we have identified the number of ‘7’ as being the number of the G-D of the Bible and have seen its appearance in the planet Saturn, the Sabbath day, the rainbow, and the true wedding ring finger, let us look at another significant place we see the number ‘7’ appear in the Bible…
“You shall also make a lampstand of pure gold; the lampstand shall be of hammered work. Its shaft, its branches, its bowls, its ornamental knobs, and flowers shall be of one piece. And six branches shall come out of its sides: three branches of the lampstand out of one side, and three branches of the lampstand out of the other side.” (Exodus 25:31-32)
The Golden Menorah is one of the primary items G-D instructed the People of Israel to place inside the Temple, the Place of G-D’s Glorious Abiding Presence in Jerusalem. The menorah was a lamp stand made of one piece of gold with six branches coming out of the main, center body which itself had a branch coming out of the top. A prime usage of the number ‘7’ within the Temple, the Menorah served as a source of light within the Temple Sanctuary.
This made for a total of seven branches, with seven fires lit in the lamps of each branch – seven lights…
Here again, we see Divine instruction involving the number ‘7.’ Fascinatingly, the branch which came directly out of the middle of the main, center body of the menorah also happens to be the 4th branch, counting from the furthermost right branch (In Hebrew, the language and culture of the Bible, you count and read from the right to the left). All of the other branches appear in symmetrical pairs all centering around this 4th branch, which has no symmetrical pair-partner branch.
The Human Menorah
I recently discovered that if you look at the anatomy of the human body, you can quickly recognize these ‘menorah’ patterns. Just as the Menorah has a main body with seven branches, so the human torso is a main body with seven ‘branches.’ The outer four are paired as our arms and legs. The inner three are ‘branches’ which relate directly to the reproduction of life, the ‘passing of the fire, the flame, the light.’ The center, 4th ‘branch’ is where the actual new life emerges from the body, for both the male and female body. I find this incredibly fascinating and non-coincidental!
Not only the human torso, but also the head of the body demonstrates this ‘menorah’ pattern. There are seven openings to the head. Three pairs of openings are found centering around one single opening. The ears, eyes, and nostrils, center around the mouth. Fascinatingly, the Bible says in Proverbs 18:21,
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue,
And those who love it will eat its fruit.”
And in James 2:6a,
“And the tongue is a fire…”
So too, ‘fire’ can proceed out of the mouth, the 4th ‘branch’ of the ‘menorah,’ either to bring life, or to cause destruction and death.
I sketched some pictures to illustrate what I’m trying to convey…
Not only do you see two main ‘menorah’ patterns in the anatomy of the human body and head, but you also can see direct correlation between the two. If you compare the pairs between the two patterns, starting from the outer pairs and working your way to the inner pairs, you can find some really amazing correlations. The arms correlate to the ears. In the Bible, emphasis is put on your actions, represented by the arms and hands, matching with what you hear G-D instructing you to do, represented by the ears. The legs correspond to the eyes, for the blind struggle to walk. The next pair requires deeper contemplation…
The center 4th ‘branch’ of each ‘menorah’ pattern is more obvious in how they correlate. These are the parts of the body which engage in the most intimate interaction possible between human beings, which in them contain the ability to produce ‘fire’ unto great destruction and death, or unto whole new life (more ‘menorahs’).
To conclude this section about the human ‘menorah,’ I want to show how each ‘menorah’ pattern gives the shape of a triangle, the symmetrical top ends of the ‘menorah’ meeting at a single point at the bottom of the ‘menorah.’ These two ‘menorah’ patterns give us two triangle shapes which are inverted from each other, which, as noted above, looks like a ‘tent’ or ‘tipi.’ The Bible teaches that the human body is like a ‘tent’ for the human soul. Not only that, but if you overlap these inverted triangles over each other, you receive a Star of David.
Therefore, the human body itself is in this way the shape of the Star of David.
The Star of David
As was said before, the Star of David appears when you overlap two inverted triangles over each other. The strongest shape you can possibly make is with three lines and it’s a triangle. I learned from Rabbi Daniel Lapin that the weakest arrangement you can make with three lines looks like what I sketched below. If you take the invert of this arrangement of lines and overlap it over the other, you will create the Nazi swastika. Therefore, it can be said that the opposite of the Nazi swastika is the Star of David.
The same hexagon shape which is found in the center of the Star of David is the same exact hexagon shape we find on the North Pole of the planet, “Saturn,” the seventh major celestial body of our solar system and the first one which has a ring around it. We have seen how the symbols of the ring, number 7, and Star of David represent Covenant between mankind and the G-D of the Universe.
Awesomely, there is a Bible verse where this Covenant is directly expressed by G-D…
“Thus says the L-RD,
Who gives the sun for a light by day,
The ordinances of the moon and the stars for a light by night,
Who disturbs the sea,
And its waves roar
(The L-RD of Hosts is HIS name):
“If those ordinances depart
From before ME, says the L-RD,
Then the seed of Israel shall also cease
From being a nation before ME forever.” –Jeremiah 31:35-36
In this verse, we read that G-D makes the celestial bodies a sign of the Covenant between HIMSELF and Israel. How clearly is this seen in the seventh celestial body, which is the first with a ring around it and bears the same hexagonal shape that the Flag the modern State of Israel has? Do you think Jeremiah knew in the sixth century BCE, or any Jew until the Space Age for that matter, that the planet Saturn shared the same symbols of covenant and mark as the Jewish People and Nation?
Another sign of the Covenant we see G-D give HIS People is that of circumcision. In circumcision, the foreskin is removed off of the 4th, center ‘branch’ of the human ‘menorah,’ as we discussed above. What is left is a circular mark on the skin, like a ring, which remains as a sign of the Covenant between G-D and man.
But this is not the only kind of circumcision the Bible describes…
There is also the circumcision of the lips, as Moses says,
“Behold, I am of uncircumcised lips, and how shall Pharaoh heed me?” –Exodus 6:30b
Perfectly, the lips are also the 4th, center ‘branch’ of the ‘menorah’ of the human head, as can also be seen above in my sketches.
What is the other circumcision we see in the Bible?
“Therefore circumcise the foreskin of your heart, and be stiff-necked no longer.” –Deuteronomy 10:16
The heart is the other circumcision we see in the Bible. But where do we see a ‘menorah’ pattern in either the Bible or in Creation, where the heart is the 4th, center ‘branch’ of the ‘menorah,’ as in the circumcision of the flesh and of the lips?
Oddly enough, in Eastern religion, there are seven “energy centers” of human consciousness. Each of these “energy centers” correspond with one of the seven colors of the rainbow (which we mentioned before) and are also associated with certain symbols. Weirdly, the 4th, middle “energy center” happens to be the heart and its symbol is exactly that of a Star of David…
Whether you believe in these “energy centers” or not, the Biblical allusions and correlations are so strikingly similar and would speak more of a corruption of the truth, rather than just a plain, flat-out lie conceived out of nowhere.
To go on further, we see that the color of the rainbow which lies at the center, ‘4’ position and corresponds to the heart is the color green. It is interesting that we generally associate the color green with the concept of life. We find this in the Bible too,
“Keep your heart with all diligence,
For out of it spring the issues of life.” –Proverbs 4:23
Is it any coincidence that the planet which we call the “Green Planet,” the planet that produces and sustains life of many kinds, is also at the center, ‘4’ position of the major celestial bodies counting, beginning at the Sun?
On an additional note, most scientists believe that the Moon was produced as the result of a planetary-mass object colliding with the Earth and causing a separation between the Earth and what eventually became the Moon. If true, this created the conditions in which life was able to be sustained on Earth. I beg you to ponder the similarities between this separation and that afforded by the circumcision of the flesh, lips, and heart.
Now that we have discussed how even the anatomy of our bodies testifies to the covenantal faithfulness of G-D and the signs of the Covenants HE has made with Israel and mankind, we can see also how truly we are created in the image of G-D. Our bodies and spirits are so intimately tied up with G-D and HIS Creation so that there is no separating us from G-D.
G-D is One, and we are truly one with HIM…
Now, hold tight.
There are more connections to be made…
