Joyful -When Radiated By Anyone- Elevates Stature. This is to the highest levels. This blog will attempt to answer how and why. It ties into an ancient Middle Eastern concept called gematria. It refers to the sharing of a letter and number by the same symbol. Once there was no separate notation for letters and numbers. That is foreign to our current day thinking. In the Middle East it was common. Hebrew still illustrates this in the calendar:
Some words had the same numerical value. This is true with the two key Hebrew words: joy and Redeemer. Also, within a phrase, one (1) could be added without changing the essential numerical meaning. This was called the colel. This blog makes the point: Any happy person helps all mankind.This is true regardless of religion or nationality.
The two Hebrew words, joy and Messiah, both have a value of 353. The words are given below.
Original Word:מָשִׁ֫יחַ. This translates to the Redeemer, Messiah.
A Joyful Gematria
In addition to this 353 co-incidence, we’ll examine two more correspondences: In Greek gematria it specified Hermes. Key numbers were once shared by even different cultures. Read my 353rd blog. The link is given below.
Now for the ancient source of 353: It is hidden in a well known number code. Read the internal link below called 3 x 3 number square Archives.The code hides 1110: When 1110 becomes a circumference, then 353… becomes its diameter. At one time number squares structured civilization. They formulated a peaceful era.
Finally, 352 is the gematria of the two words that immediately precede Judaism’s most important prayer- Hear O Israel. Milk and honey are the last two words of Deut: 6:3. Hear O Israel are the first words of Deut. 6:4. These words in Deut. 6:3 are translated into as “milk and honey.” Read another internal link below. What does this mean? When the lost codes hidden in the 3 x 3 number square are activated, the lands will flow will “milk and honey.”
Secret Ancient Codes Known in Egypt. The secrets involved number squares. A favored was the “three by three magic square.” Why was it called magic? Because hidden codes can appear from seemingly nowhere. You just have to look past the bars. Most people are stopped by the lines. They think that nine has its own little box. Or, that seven is likewise an isolated number etc. People who believe this cannot see the truth. To the uninitiated, this is to what God says to Isaiah in 42:16. Making “crooked things straight”, means getting rid of the bars. In this manner, secret ancient codes are revealed.
And I will bring the blind by a way that they know not. I will lead them in paths they have not known. I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things I will do unto them, and not forsake them. This is God’s promise to Isaiah for redemption.
Magic squares, in this sense, can be likened to stage or street magic. Priests, prophets, engineers and builders used the magic square in a practical manner. The 3 x 3 number square is not paranormal or ritual magic. This square, however, can entertain and engage. Just like the entertainer in this picture. In this sense, real technical magic is one of the oldest performing arts in the world. Use of magic squares are documented in Neolithic times. I believe they were used before the Great Deluge in Noah’s time. I have blogged about their use in Lepenski Vir, Jericho, and Troy. Check out posts on DSOworks.com. These ancient sites were measured by characteristic numbers of number squares.
However, religious priests of various cultures took the magic square’s properties to heart. Here are a couple of examples of how it was used.
Egypt, the Great Pyramid of Gizeh. Get rid of the bars. Add the numbers three at the time as follows: 492 + 618; or 438 + 672. In both cases, the total is 1110. The perimeter around the Great Pyramid is 1110 megalithic yards.
Here’s how the Greek priests of ancient Athens used the magic square: Make 1110 the circumference of a circle. Its diameter becomes 353.
I copied part of my 353rd blog for this post: Three hundred fifty third blog and Hermes. This is a special blog. In antiquity a letter and numbers shared a symbol. This was true in Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, etc. In most modern languages, a letter has one type of symbol. The number has another. This ancient approach to communication was called by a Greek name- gematria. Three hundred fifty third blog, therefore is about Mercury-Hermes. The spelling by Greek letters of Hermes equated with 353. Hermes (/ˈhɜːrmiːz/; Greek: Ἑρμῆς) is an Olympian god in Greek religion and mythology, the son of Zeus and the PleiadMaia, and the second youngest of the Olympian gods (Dionysus being the youngest). Hermes was the emissary and messenger of the gods. The Romans called Hermes by the name, Mercury.
In other words, Hermes is found in the concealed span or diameter of a hidden code in the simplest of number squares. That is his domain.
