“But the natural man receives not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness to him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” 1 Corinthians 2:14
My apologies, I couldn’t end this series before providing you with an introductory bit of information about Gematria. There are infinite examples on the internet of the gematria of torah, 611. I hope to offer you a few examples that are not a part of the common internet landscape.
I want to provide a few examples that I have not seen lifted up at all, or not very often.
The Gematria of torah is 611.
tav (400) vav (6) reish (200) hei (5) = 611
Applying a little Gematria…
During the entire teaching on the letters of torah, I told you about a little thing called gematria. Allow me to introduce you to a site that helped me when I first began studying torah called, Hebrew4Christians.com. It is very user friendly, and can assist you in staying grounded in torah concepts.
Hebrew4Christians.com explains to us that: “Within the earliest Jewish traditions, groups of Jewish scholars counted the number of times each letter appeared in the Scriptures (as well as the number of words, verses, paragraphs, etc.). These textual specialists were called Soferim (counters).” They provide an interesting read on the subject, so I suggest you take a look.
Today, I will present a few words that highlight the significance of the numerical connection between Hebrew words.
#1. LIGHT in Hebrew is the word, ‘or’. Pronounced the same was as the English word, or. Example: “My choices are between light or darkness.” Light in Hebrew is spelled,
aleph (A) vav (V) reish (R)
The consonant vav, doubles here as an ‘o’. Ore, (215) means to be or become Light.
All 3 of the above letters have been introduced to you in the teachings entitled, the Undiscovered Adam….(on the letter aleph) and The Message in the Letters of torah… (the vav and the reish).
The Hebrew Letter that represents GOD is aleph
1st… aleph-vav-reish is how you say, LIGHT in Hebrew. Our 1st observation, which must stand out to you is, that in order to say LIGHT in Hebrew, you have to begin with an aleph– Because GOD is LIGHT.
2nd…You have the vav, the letter that represents the Messiach, The SON of the Living GOD, (at another level, the vav can represent mankind)
3rd…You have the reish, the letter that represents Headship and You, standing in your place of Headship/Leadership)
What connects the aleph and the reish. The vav, is the connection between the GOD of Heaven and the reish on Earth.
Without GOD, the aleph, and His vav, The SON of the Living GOD and the reish, YOU, their Representative on Earth, there is no Light.
From the very first time GOD said, “Let there be Light”, He had YOU in mind.
You were ALWAYS a part of the equation. GOD can not spell Light, without a reish.
aleph (1) vav (6) reish (200) = 207
aleph (GOD) vav (Son) reish (You) = 207
While we are hear, know that Light in Hebrew has the same numerical equivalency as the words; I see (H7200), I Speak (H1696), and in righteousness (H6666), crown (H2213), to name a few.
Sight, Speech, Righteousness and Crown are all equivalent to Light. They are all in line with and equal to; The Father, The Son and the reish, the Light
That is not coincidence. That is the providential blessings in the Hebrew.
But, Rev. Madison…You said Light equaled, the 611 in torah.
“Yes, I did.”
Let’s take a look at Psalm 18:28 for a minute.
“For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.”
(tav) – aleph – vav – reish, …reads (will) Light.
When a tav is placed before the verb, ‘Light’ in Hebrew, the tav becomes the word, “will”.
tav (400) aleph (1) vav (6) reish (200) = 611
When tav takes the ‘imperfect’ form through use of the letter tav… it is expressed in the imperfect tense, meaning ‘I will’.
The Imperfect Form in Hebrew represents “Incomplete Action”. Words like, “will and shall” are incomplete.
In Hebrew, the Future (tense) is called Imperfect. It’s imperfect, because there is an unknown element.
“For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.”
Our focus is on the first 4 words.
For (key) You (atah) will (represented by the letter tav) light (ore, aleph-vav-reish)
transliteration: key atah tah’ear (see Notation #1 at the end of this teaching)
For You Will Light….meaning GOD will light
“For thou wilt light (ore) my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.”
Again, that’s the literal translation…. Let’s look at this same verse from another perspective, applying what we have learned about the Hebrew Letter tav.
tav + LIGHT = 611
tav – aleph – vav – reish… The tav, represents the Covenant and the Cross. Psalm 18:28 says, For YOU will light my candle… David is speaking of GOD. tav-aleph vav-reish is how you say, “You will Light”
“You (atah), Will (tav)” is expressed, by the placing the letter tav in front of the word Light. (I am intentionally repeating this information)
To place LIGHT in the future imperfect tense, you add a tav in-front of the word, ore (LIGHT).
You also know that, tav represents GOD’s Covenant.
David is literally saying, “GOD will light his candle”… but David is also saying, through the Hebrew lettering…The Covenant is Light. The covenant is the candle. As long as David operates by the Covenant, GOD will enlighten the darkness.
Without the Covenant, there “will be” no Light. tav takes this entire conversation to the imperfect tense, because whether or not the light comes, will depend on whether or not YOU accept the covenant.
Covenant + Light = torah.
David has a candle for GOD to Light.
It takes GOD to light our candle. GOD ignites the flame inside our hearts.
He gave us the Covenant, represented by the letter tav in this verse.
In order to say, “YOU will light my candle”, you have to place a tav before the light.
When we take up GOD’s Covenant, the Light comes…
How do I know, that I know, that I know…, What are my many infallible proofs, besides what I have shown you in the letters themselves?
Because David told me so, in Ps 119:130
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”
God’s Word, brings the Light
When we add the Covenant, God’s Word bring’s the Light
…and that’s the 611 on torah
- What I want you to learn and remember in this teaching?
- GOD’s Word always agrees with itself.
- The word Light (215) means to be or become the Light.
- Acceptance of GOD’s Word, brings Light.
- The Imperfect Tense in Hebrew, awaits Your Decision.
- God is Prepared to do something…What are we prepared to do?
- The Covenant is how we bring GOD’s Light into the World. We must accept and obey the covenant.
- You Already Knew GOD called you to be a Light in the World. Now you know, that YOU were already written into the word Light.
- GOD, Christ and You, spell LIGHT.
- Christ is in the middle, connecting GOD and the reish.
- It takes, GOD, Christ and a reish, to bring the Light into the darkness. It’s a Partnership.
- When we bring the Covenant, GOD sends the Light!
- As long as David operated by the Covenant, GOD would enlighten his darkness.
- Place a tav before the Light.
Torah is Viewed From Many Vantage Points….
Take a piece of paper in your hand. An 8 1/2 by 11 sheet of paper, would be great for this demonstration. You have many options available to you to view this piece of paper. Front or back, you can fold it in half’s, quarters, eights, etc. You can bawl it up, unfold it and look at each individual sub section. You can flip it horizontally, vertically, lining your sight up with the edges in order to gain different perspectives, until you have examined every conceivable aspect and viewpoint.
This is how you study torah. You leave no stone unturned. Examine everything, every word, every phrase. Find the connections. Our goal is a higher perspective from which to view scripture.
“Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.” —Psalm 31:24
Just for Fun… a bit of 611 Trivia.
OK, I can’t help myself. So, I just have to point this out! Back in the day, in America, when you used to be able to pick up the phone and call 611 for information/customer service. Does anyone remember that? The phone company had a system set up that allowed you to call for residence and business listings of phone numbers. It was called 611.
Looks like, 611 is connected to the pursuit of wisdom, knowledge and information. Someone at AT&T must have had a little torah in them.
NOTATION #1: You = atah tah (will) ear (light) : when ore, Light is conjugated with tav (will) the sound of ore changes, form on “o” sound to an “e” sound. For now, without straying off into grammar too far, stay focused on the word for ‘light’, which is ore, aleph-tav-reish.
