Jesus in the Ancient Hebrew Alphabet Part 14 – The Mem Part 1 – the Blood
(Ver 1.0) This lesson is “Part 14” in the Bible study series revealing the Lord Jesus Christ, that had been hidden by the Spirit of God in His very intelligent design of the original Ancient Hebrew Alphabet. This is also “Part 1” of the individual letter “Mem” study. There is absolutely too much essential information to be placed in only 1 lesson. We are about to find that the letter “Mem” is a picture of moving liquid. It primarily represents two types of liquids. The first is “water”, and the second is “blood”. There are also several other figurative meanings found in the picture of the “Mem”. We will mainly focus on the subject of “blood” in this first lesson, but there are times when both will be mentioned.
This alphabet lesson on the “Mem” is another truly amazing subject uncovering extraordinary, veiled information in one letter of the Hebrew alphabet. This single letter has a massive amount of spiritual information pointing us prophetically to Jesus. The “Mem” is one of the most essential letters to understand of the entire 22. If you have not read this series from the beginning, it is recommended that you go and do so with the “Part 1 Introduction” first. There is just too much information that has been given in each lesson that will not be fully repeated in the others. But this lesson will stand alone for those that desire to see only the application of this one alphabet letter “Mem”.
Please also understand that these are “advanced spiritual Bible lessons” from the word of God and are potentially offensive to the unsaved, immature carnal, or newly born Christian. Therefore, before you read these lessons, please pray and ask the LORD should I even be reading this? Then analyze what should be my response if I do not agree with what is being taught about Jesus? Please accept a suggestion. No matter what your reaction, please walk in love, and please do not leave an unsolicited evil accusation about anyone or anything you don’t agree with. God is Love! And you only prove you don’t really know Him, by speaking evil of His children (Mat 12:34).
Today we will be learning only a limited number of subjects of the total amount of God’s important information about Jesus Christ found in the letter “Mem”. In fact, in this first “Mem” lesson, we will only cover the introduction to the letter “Mem” and the subject of it representing “Blood”. There are literally many volumes of books that could be written on each letter and how it applies to the work of God in Christ Jesus. Here is a quick list of the contents of today’s sections:
- Introduction to the Ancient Hebrew Mem
- Jesus’ BLOOD is One of the Foundational “Mem” Symbols
- Jesus To Die the Death, Another Prophecy Fulfilled on the Cross
- Jesus God’s LAST ADAM – The Blood of God Sacrifice
- God’s (Alef) + “Blood” (Mem) + “Cross” (Tav) = TRUTH
- Jesus the First and Last – Mem Water and Blood Prophecy Fulfillment
- The Mem Part 1 Blood Conclusion
Let us get started with learning this incredible picture of God’s “Mem” letter as being a representation of the Blood of Jesus Christ.
1. Introduction to the Ancient Hebrew Mem
The ancient Hebrew letter “Mem”, is the 13th letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and has the gematria number value of “40”. The letter “Mem” can be spelled as a Hebrew root word with these three letters: “Mem” + “Yod” + “Mem”. The Hebrew root word H4325 (mayim) are these three letters, and this word is defined to be “water”. This Hebrew word H4325 is translated into “water”, or “waters”, over 500 times in the Old Testament. Therefore, the primary meaning of the letter “Mem” is “water”. This should be obvious by simply observing the pictogram of the letter “Mem”. Everyone should be able to see how this picture is of three waves. This wave concept has a far-reaching application to many designs within God’s creation. For example, here is a short list of waves that we encounter today all around us:
- Tidal Waves of the Ocean
- Tsunami Waves of an Earthquake
- Storm Waves of a Hurricane or Typhon
- Light Waves radiating from the Sun and Stars
- Sound Waves of a Concert
- Voice Sound Waves of a Preacher
- Microwaves heating our foods quickly
- Radio and Television Waves Broadcast from Towers
- Cell phone waves allowing talk, text and internet world communication
These are just a sampling of God created waves that are practically identical with the exception of substance, frequency and magnitude of the wave being generated and measured. The opposite of a wave is silence, calm, peace and this is important to know. We will only be focused upon the water wave movement concept in this introduction, and how this type of moving liquid represents blood and life.
There are many different types of “waters” in the world. As you can see by the picture of the letter, this type of water has the meaning of moving liquid by God’s designed picture of 3 waves. It is also noteworthy to see that the picture contains the implication of “continuance” or “continual movement” as the waves could never end, if the writer desired to continue to draw more and more waves. Also notice that this letter “Mem” picture looks a lot like the English letter “M”. But the English letter does not have the design of “continuance” as both ends of the letter are abruptly terminated with a straight line and not a diagonal line of the “Mem”. On the other hand, the English letter “W” does more closely resemble the design of the “Mem”, but with a pointing upward termination point.’
Let us get back to the concepts of waves and water briefly. Water is always a collective body contained within boundaries of limitations, The larger the body of water, the greater potential for more massive waves. The greatest waves on earth are the most powerful and potentially destructive. These normally occur in the earth’s oceans and could only occur naturally by a massive earthquake or an asteroid collision. We can clearly read about an asteroid hitting an ocean on the earth and killing many in Revelation 8:8-9.
In recent times we have already observed the activation of an enormous Tsunami wave on December 26, 2004, when an earthquake of over 9.1 magnitude caused a massive wave in the Indian Ocean, that killed over 225,000 people. Therefore, waves and their sizes, and their causes are very important to understanding this subject of the “Mem” designed picture more completely. For examples, all waves have causes and are a potentially powerful force that can be directed for good or for evil purposes. This is the classic scenario of “cause” and “effect”. If you observe a wave, we must stop and know there was somethings that caused it. Then we must begin to understand its purpose or intention for releasing this power. The concept of moving waves is definitely a picture of power being released and the larger the waves, the greater the power that caused them.
Just keep this in mind, for later when we directly study the next subject of “water” in a subsequent lesson. But it is important to interpret every verse in the Bible by God’s dividing line verse of good versus evil. In John 10:10, Jesus said the “thief” only came to steal, kill and destroy, but I have come, to give you life and that life in full abundance”. Therefore, if anything like a wave came to kill, it was from Satan, and all other waves that we can experience to gain pleasure those were from God as good.
Now let us observe some other concepts and details concerning water, because this is what the letter “Mem” primarily represents. The “Mayim” Hebrew word is plural, but it can be translated as being either “singular” or “plural”. Sometimes the contextual usage is only speaking of one body of “water”, and other times multiple bodies of “waters”. Liquid “water” is an interesting concept. One large glass of “water” could have the same amount of total liquid volume as two smaller cups of water divided. So, the word “mayim” or the letter “Mem” are not very specific to the amount or volume of the liquid that is being referred to. In other words, a body of water, could be a giant ocean, a major sea, a river, a lake, a stream, a pond, or a puddle, etc. They are all containers that describe limiting features of the content called “water” and “waves” can occur in each by the application of power and energy.
Let us now go much “deeper” into exploring God’s created elements and characteristics of natural water. The chemical make-up of water is “H2O”. This represents two parts hydrogen, plus one part oxygen. That is the concept of “1+2=3”. But these 3 are clearly 1 water molecule. Obviously, it takes three parts (plural) to make the singular one water molecule. Water can also be found on the earth in 3 forms, 1) vapor (air), 2) water (liquid) and 3) ice (solid). There are also three areas or realms of water on our planet. There is a lot of water particles in the atmosphere. These water particles produce varying degrees of humidity, fall like rain, and produce dew. Then there are the bodies of water on the surface of the planet. The amount of water on the surface is massive, but without it you would not be alive on this planet. The final area of water is under the earth’s surface. According to some scientists today, they estimate that there is as much water under the surface of dry ground as there is in all of the oceans. This is why even in the desert a well can be dug, to reach life sustaining waters. Did you notice all of the groups of three we just found in the basics of water? I wonder if this is why God placed three waves in the design of this letter?
This information teaches us that letter “Mem” represents an essential life source, and Jesus claims to be this source of life in these two verses:
Joh 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Joh 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
Hopefully, we can all begin to see how just these two verses apply to the concepts of Jesus representing “living waters” that was designed by God to produce human spiritual life. If you study this more fully you will soon find how essential “water” is to the existence of humans on this planet. Now apply that truth, to Jesus being this “water” symbol that came to give us spiritual life to enjoy here on earth, as well as to live eternally alive with Him.
There are a number of simultaneous applications of the picture letter “Mem” as water. One of the first things that is noticeable about the picture diagram, is that it is not a representation of a “flat line” body of calm water. Whenever water is especially calm it is observed to be motionless. Other words that could apply, are “idle”, “stationary”, “still”, “peaceful”, “passive”, and etc. The concept of a “flatline” is found in many other realms of created entities that are wave like in nature.
For example, the term “flat line” is very important in the medical field. Whenever a patient’s heart stops, their life monitor “flat lines” and this sets off an alarm for immediate attention. This is our first observation of how flowing blood is a representation of the “Mem”. It is when the blood in the body stops moving that death has occurred normally. This information appears to teach us, that flowing waters represent “life” if directed appropriately for this usage. The opposite of this would generally teach us that, no movement or waves could be applied to mean “death”. But was have already learned that “waves” or “floods” of waters to an extreme are also designed to produce death and chaos.
Most should already know that God is good and that He is the highest positive application of the symbol of the Mem “water” picture for “good” and “life”. The other negative side of the application is Satan, who is called God’s adversary (Zec 3:2). The name Satan actually means an opponent or adversary and he is the root cause of all “evil”. Therefore, good waters are from God, and evil waters are from “Satan”, and we do not yet know everything that this picture is used by God to teach us. All we know so far, is that water (Mem) can be a source for great good to produce life, and then it can also be moved to the opposite extreme, to steal, kill or destroy people (Jn 10:10). We can begin to learn this concept simply by observing the picture of waves. Please keep this in mind as we continue to learn. Here is the quick recap of what we have learned so far about the “Mem” pictogram meaning:
- The Mem is a picture of Flowing or Moving Water representing “Life” until taken to extremes
- The movement of Mem water waves has the “power” to move or change things
- Water is a plural word with an unknown quantity of total H2O molecules and all of these can be labeled or named as one collective body
- There is always something or someone releasing energy to cause the movement of the water that produced the waves
- Water can be used for either “good” and life or for “evil” to cause death
Now let us reaffirm the good nature of water. Our planet without the created waters upon the three areas of existence, the 1) surface, the 2) atmosphere, and the 3) under the surface, would be a lifeless planet like Mars. Water is one of the three major created components that make life available to our existence. These 3 components are called 1) water (Mem), 2) light (Qof) and 3) seed (Nun). Perhaps you may recall that all three of these essential components for continued human life are represented by ancient Hebrew alphabet pictograms. The water is our current subject of the “Mem”. The light is found in the subject of the letter “Qof”. And the “seed” is found in the letter “Nun” that immediately follows this letter Mem. It is interesting for us to see how God made the Mem (water), and the Nun (seed), so directly linked in the alphabet, because we will soon learn that they both are powerful natural representations of the same spiritual subject.
The next meaning of the letter “Mem” also relates to the subject of water. It should be known upfront that the human body composition is comprised of up to 50% to 65% “water”. This internal water content is absolutely essential for a healthy human life. Now for the real connection of water to our body. The “blood” in the human body can be up to 80% water. Therefore, blood and water are both representations for the letter “Mem”. This is further confirmed because our “blood” is not laying still, but is rather being pumped with every heart beat to circulate our “blood” over and over and over throughout our body. It is very easy to see how moving and flowing “blood” in the body is a picture of “life” and is a “good” God created designed representation for the moving liquid found in the letter “Mem”. Therefore, the moving liquid picture of the “Mem” represents “blood” and “life” in many verses.
We should know that taking water into our body for our healthy life is accomplished by “drinking” it with our mouth. Remember the letter “Peh” is a picture of an “open mouth”. It is amazing how all of the letters are tied together by God’s intellectual design. The water goes into our mouth, and is swallowed into our stomach and is used by the body in a large capacity of life’s functions. The human body can only generally survive without consuming water for 3 days. This is another interesting pattern of the number 3. The process of water is a cyclically repeated pattern necessary for continuing life on this physical planet. Therefore, we have the concept of moving natural water going externally from the body to internally inside the body for a good and healthy life
But what other good purposes does water possess externally? One of God’s key usages externally is for cleaning. Water has an inherit quality to have a dissolving nature to it. If we stir in sugar into a cup of water, the sugar substance is dissolved and the water becomes sweet tasting with no visible or observable indicators of this sweetness. But this quality design feature can also do the same with “dirt”. Whether we need to clean our clothes, our house, our car, our body or whatever, flowing and moving water is an essential created material for this usage. God knew this when He created it and He will apply this meaning to our study also.
Finally, it is noteworthy in our introduction to remember God writes of the blood of Jesus in 1 John 1:7. In this verse the Holy Spirit made a point to say it is the blood of Jesus that cleans us from all “sin”. We are beginning to notice that water and blood are used by God in parallel patterns. The water is used by us to clean our bodies and clothes and the blood of Jesus was used by Him to clean us to make us able to be with Him eternally. We have added to our list that the “Mem” represents the subjects of:
- The essential force for internal Life and Health
- And external cleansing agent from filth
- The cleansing blood of Jesus to remove human filth of sin
Ok, that was enough for a quick introduction to the “Mem” water and blood letter. We have seen how the letter can be either used for good or evil, but when applied to God who is always good, it is an essential element for cleansing us from all sinful unrighteousness externally and for giving us new life as a new creation internally in our human spirit. We will now turn our attention to the letter “Mem” and its application to represent “blood”.
2. Jesus’ BLOOD is One of the Foundational “Mem” Symbols
For all humans, one of the most essential hidden messages of prophecy found in the ancient Hebrew “Mem” pictogram, is the representation of flowing, living blood. Because the picture is of a moving liquid, it is very logical to associate this concept with the constant “movement and flow of blood”. As a saved Christian we should already understand how this living blood picture fits with the essential work of Christ in our human salvation. For example, without consuming the blood of Jesus, no human could ever be saved. Notice what Jesus said to us in John:
Joh 6:53 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.
These are difficult words to accept for many. It is important to understand that Jesus is not teaching cannibalism in this statement. This is a figurative representation for a far superior spiritual reality. Nevertheless, Jesus used the natural substance of Mem “blood” to help guide us for the need of His sacrifice on a cross (Tav) and without this substance no human would have any eternal life.
If you are not a Christian, you may not believe this yet. Those that received salvation could only do so, because of the willing sacrifice of divine blood of one God/Man named Jesus Christ. In a human male of about 180 pounds, he could have had at least 1.2 to 1.5 gallons of blood. It was this Mem image of flowing blood, that purchased out redemption out of a human sin debt, that could only be paid for by God Himself. This is why this symbolic meaning of the picture is by far one of the most significant meanings that is needed to be understood.
What we need to understand, is that there was a problem with every human born from the first created man named Adam. Because he rebelled, and sinned willingly, we all rebelled and sinned at that very instant having the death sentence passed upon every generation. We must understand that before sin entered into the world, Adam’s blood was created sinless and he was able to live forever. But after sin, his corrupted sinful blood was passed down to us all. Acts 17:26 informs us that God created all nations on the earth from “one blood (Mem)”. Because of Adam’s sin, the entire bloodline of every human descendant became corrupted (1 Cor 15:50). We see this principle again in 1 Corinthians 15:22 where God says, “For as in Adam, all die”. It was Adam’s DNA in his seed (Nun) that produced the next line of blood-stained generation of humans, and this continued even to today.
This is why we all needed a savior, even if you think you never did anything bad enough to be sent to hell for. Because God knew all of this, this is the reason why, Jesus brought into the world a “New Sinless Divine Blood”, that was not defiled or corrupted by the first Adam’s sin. We learn this fact from reading in 1 Peter 1:18-19. In these verses God says, “We were not redeemed with corruptible things, … But with the precious blood of Messiah/Christ”.
In this section, we are only focused upon the “primary” importance of the “Mem” representing the “blood” of Jesus Christ. In doing this, we must go back to Exodus 12 and establish God’s pattern of the coming Messiah by observing Him found in the blood of a lamb. Exodus 12:1 begins by saying “And the Lord spoke unto Moses”. The Hebrew word H559 that was translated as “spoke” is spelled “Alef” + “Mem” + “Lamed”. Please recall the “Alef” is a picture of an ox representing “God as a strong servant”. Then recall, the “Mem” is a picture of “water” and/or “blood”. Finally recall the “Lamed”, is a picture of a shepherd’s staff representing his “authority”.
Placing the meanings of these three letters together it says, “God’s (Alef) water/blood/words (Mem) of Authority (Lamed)”. Since God was doing the speaking to Moses with this word, we can certainly see the application of that description to what was taking place. We have only been introduced briefly to the fact that the “Mem” represents physical water and blood. But we will soon learn that this natural “water” symbol, can also represent spiritual spoken words of authority. We will get to this fact soon. Keep these in mind, because all of these meanings have an application to Jesus.
Now notice the named “Moses” also begins with the letter “Mem”. Most know the story of Moses. Moses was born during a time where all male babies were commanded to be thrown into the Nile River (Mem) to be drown (Exo 1:22). This river was a very large flowing “Mem” water supply of Egypt. Therefore, Satan was trying to use God’s created supply of water (Mem) designed for life, as an instrument of death. Do not forget later when Moses is sent to deliver Israel from Egypt that the first plague sent was God turning this water supply from water into blood (Exo 17:7). That is a major pattern of confirmation for the symbol of “Mem” representing both water and blood.
In fact, in Exodus 17:7, the word translated as “waters” is the word H4325, which is the word form of the letter “Mem” that begins and ends with the letter “Mem”. Then notice the Hebrew word translated into the word “blood” is H1818, and it ends with the letter “Mem”. We are about to discover how all of this is being designed and connected together by God as prophetical patterns of the coming Jesus. Let us get back to the story of Moses being saved by God from Satan’s River of death.
Most recall, that all male babies were commanded to be killed in the river. But Moses was saved by him being hidden for 3 months, and then being placed in an empty container translated as an “ark”. By Moses being placed above the waters of death, it was this “ark” that saved him. This Hebrew word H8392 translated as “ark” is spelled “Tav” + “Beyt” + “Hey”. The “Tav” we should know by now is the last letter of the alphabet a picture of a “Cross”. The “Beyt” is a picture of the “Tent House” and the “Family” inside the house. Finally, the “Hey” is a picture of a man with hands raised, meaning “Look”, “Behold”, and “See”. Therefore, we can see how an “ark” of salvation is a prophetical picture for Christians beholding the revelation (Hey) of the cross (Tav) that is creating a new family of God to enter into (Beyt).
It was Moses floating above this water that saved him, when he was drawn out by a daughter of Pharoah’s house. Moses’ name actually means to be “drawn” from water. Remember, that it was this daughter’s father that ordered the Hebrew babies to be killed. Therefore, the enemy also became the deliverer for Moses, without fully knowing it. God is amazing, isn’t He? It should amaze us how God can use what was intended for evil to be used for deliverance. This is how the life of Moses was saved by God’s selection usage of water. We have also just confirmed the concept about water being of two opposing usages for good and life, or evil and death. That is an important factor or type, to not forget. It will reappear as we study this subject.
So far, we have just covered multiple applications found in Exodus about blood and water and we find them all as references to the letter “Mem”. Now let us move faster, or we will never get finished. Reading down the chapter 12 of Exodus, we find where Moses was told that every house (Beyt) must take a “lamb”. This Lamb must be without blemishes. It was to be taken into the house (Beyt) for 4 days, and then it was to be sacrificed on the 14th day of the month, when the moon was “full”. On that evening, the lamb was to be slain and its blood (Mem) was to be collected and placed on every post of the door of the house (a prophetical type of Tav). Let us stop there an learn more fully the word translated as “blood” that we were briefly introduced to earlier.
This Hebrew word H1818 has the sound of “dawm”, and it is spelled with two letters, the “Dalet” and the “Mem”. Did you notice these two Hebrew letters that are translated as “blood” are a picture of the first Passover? So, we have the major part of the story of Passover told to us in two letters that are translated as “blood”. That is not a coincidence. The “Dalet” is the picture of the Father’s house door posts where blood will be applied for his family to enter into to have every life saved. The “Mem” is obviously the picture of “blood” that is applied to the doorposts (Tav). This application to God’s heavenly house (Beyt) and eternal life, found in two letters translated as “blood” for Christ’s work on a cross to save us is amazing. What we are about to read in this chapter is a picture of God’s spiritual house. We will not get into this part of the lesson in depth today.
But for natural Israel, this act of obedience to place the lamb’s blood on the doorposts, is exactly what saved the children of Israel from the death angel coming to take the firstborn of each family house. That was the good news for the people. But the reversed bad news was for the “lamb”. The “lamb” that was slain on the first “Passover” had to die and its blood had to be placed upon wooden posts in order for no one inside the “door” to die.
This was called a substitutionary work for human salvation. Instead of the human in the house dying, the lamb died in their place. It was the outward display of a lamb’s blood that prevented the death angel from taking anyone’s life hidden in the house (Beyt). All of this found in Exodus 12, should be a clear picture of Christ’s death on a cross for all humans. It was because of His death that no other human has to die spiritually. You can read more about this in other lessons on this site. But we will observe a few of the obvious verses to confirm this:
- John the Baptist calls Jesus the “Lamb of God” in John 1:36.
- Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 5:7, that Jesus was the “Passover” sacrifice for Christians.
- In John 10:9, Jesus said “I am the door, if any man enter in, he shall be saved”.
- In 1 Peter 1:19 God says we were saved by the “precious blood of Christ, without blemish and without spot.
That was just a small sampling of verses written to the church about Jesus our Passover and His saving blood (Mem) sacrifice on a cross. There are many other references concerning the blood (Mem) of Jesus that obtained our human salvation. His blood did more than you have seen or know. But yet it is possible to learn more, by simply studying “Blood” verses in the New Testament about this subject. Hopefully, you can see how this picture of a “Passover Lamb” was fulfilled in the life and blood (Mem) of Jesus. Let us move to another part of the “Mem” blood subject.
3. Jesus to Die the Death, Another Mem Prophecy Fulfilled on the Cross
This was amazing when it was discovered recently during Bible study time with the LORD. The Hebrew word that is translated as “to die” (H4191) is spelled with 3 letters. The first letter is our study subject “Mem”. This “Mem” letter is joined with the middle letter “Vav”, and finally, the word ends with a “Tav”. Do you recall what these pictures represented? The letter “Mem” is our study letter representing moving water and blood symbolically. The letter “Vav” is the picture of a “Nail”. The letter “Tav” is the picture of a “cross”. This spelling contains the clear hidden prophecy of Jesus’ bloody death by Him being nailed to a cross. As you can see this is described by God in picture story telling form found in just 3 alphabet ancient letter designs. God knew this would happen when Moses wrote the Torah, and placed His death again, in hidden alphabet letter meanings for the word translated as “to die”. It was hidden right in front of us for many years. Let us look at the first verse in the Bible, this word is selected for us by God:
Gen 2:17 But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.
Wow, if you only knew the hidden facts in this verse. As we can read this verse is God describing to the first created man Adam, that there was one tree of the knowledge of good and evil that he must not eat from. In this verse one hidden mystery that is profound occurs at the end of the statement. The words are “thou shalt surely die”, and these two words are really just the same word. They are the same word H4191 written twice. There are several potential explanations for why God wrote it this way. Some teach that when a word is doubled there is a major emphasis and this is probably a reason why the word “surely” was placed in the translation.
But I believe it is best to allow the Bible to interpret the Bible. For this reason, we can find Jesus speaking in Revelation 2:11 saying to the Churches, “He that overcomes, will not be hurt of the second death”. This literally means there are two types of death. The first is natural death, and the second is spiritual death. Most humans are only concerned about the natural death of their bodies, because they do not understand that they are a spirit, that will live forever.
Knowing the fact that there are two types of death, that are destined for some humans that do not ever repent to receive salvation to overcome the devil, helps us to understand why God placed 2 words “to die” in a row in Genesis 2:17. In one appropriate translation it could say, “in dying, you will die”. But it also appears that because the first Adam willfully disobeyed God, all of mankind was destined to die twice. Uh oh! That is the reason why this word is spelled the way it was. Jesus Christ chose “to die” twice in our place by placing His blood upon a wooden cross, to die physically, and simultaneously He died spiritually when He was separated from His Father in heaven, by spending 3 days and 3 nights in hell (Mat 12:40).
We can clearly see how Jesus completely fulfilled this prophecy of Genesis 2:17 for payment of all human sin by becoming our substitute. This is why God could say in 1 Corinthians 15:22, “For as in Adam, all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive”. Because Jesus shed His “Mem” blood hanging nailed (Vav) to a cross (Tav), God’s justice payment was satisfied, and no other human needed to go to hell. To be “born” twice, will insure only one physical death and for some saved humans in the end of the age, a “no death” exit. This message was hidden in the “Mem” + “Vav” + “Tav” Hebrew word translated as “to die”. Hallelujah, and all praise be to the merciful LORD.
4. Jesus God’s LAST ADAM – God’s Mem Blood Sacrifice
We are about to get into some more amazing hidden prophetical statements that were concealed in the Old Testament about who Jesus was. If you have read other Bible lessons in this series you should already know that Jesus is called the “Last Adam” in 1 Corinthians 15:45. In this verse Jesus is compared directly with the “first Adam” introduced to us in Genesis 1, 2, 3 & 4. Reading in Romans 5:14 God reveals a secret that the first Adam as a patterned type for the Last Adam. In all these verses, God says the first Adam was created as a living “soul” pattern, for the “Last Adam” named Jesus who would be made by God to be a “quickening Spirit”. That is an amazing statement of comparison. What we are focused upon is the fact that both men are called “Adam” by God. This name has a lot of major implications attached to it.
We are primarily concerned about the letters found in the Hebrew name “ADAM”. We are about to discover something very amazing hidden in this name. First, we must know that the last letter in the name is the study subject “Mem” representing both blood and water. The Bible word “Adam” is the Hebrew word “H121”. It is not a translation of the Hebrew word, but rather it is a transliterated pronunciation of the Hebrew letters “ADM” (Alef+Dalet+Mem), pronounced as “Aw-dawm”. The first letter of the name Adam is “Alef”, the strong ox representing God. The second letter of the name is the “Dalet”, representing the “door” of the tent tabernacle or the movement in or out through the opening where a son is born. The last letter is the “Mem”, representing our substances of water and/or blood indicating life.
Now let us remember what we have just learned about the word H1818 that is translated as blood. Please recall this word is pronounced “dawm”. It was spelled as Dalet + Mem and just so happens to be the last two letters in the name Adam. These two letters are symbolic of the human heart as a “door” (Dalet) that allows movement of the blood (Mem) throughout the body. Most humans are aware of the physical heart muscle that pumps the human blood into all the rest of our body. This physical muscle is named the “heart”. It operates by contracting and expanding automatically, in the conjunction with the opening and closing of valves as if the opening and closing of doors (Dalet). The physical heart figuratively represents your spiritual house, and the valves represent the doors of the heart house. It is the Mem “blood” that was placed inside of us by God to pass in and out of our beating heart. The normal human heart beats over 100,000 times a day in order to keep us physically alive. Most humans take this action completely for granted.
What we are about to find is that this physical “heart” organ represents an unseen spiritual state. The human spirit is also called by the same named “heart” in the Bible. It is this spiritual location that Jesus wants to enter into to fellowship with us all. For example, notice this verse in Revelation:
Rev 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Let us stop and analyze an invitation that Jesus gave to every human on the earth. We will begin by first noticing the reference in the words of Jesus to a “door” (Dalet) that he is standing before knocking. Jesus is definitely the God servant Ox figure of the Alef. Therefore, we have the Alef standing before the Dalet. These are the first two letters of the name Adam.
You see we learned in the “Dalet” lesson that Jesus is our door for salvation, and by us choosing to enter into this door, we can be saved. But Jesus is not the only door that is necessary to be opened in order for us to become fully saved. Every human has a spiritual door provided for God access, that must also be opened by the human spirit in order to be necessary for their salvation to occur.
By a human opening their heart’s door, they are allowing the Spirit of Christ to come inside to give them eternal life by Him being their LORD. Both doors (Jesus and human) must be entered into by both covenanting partners and these acts produce a union of becoming one Spirit (1 Cor 6:17) in two realms of existence. Jesus wants you to invite Him into your heart, and He will enter your newly created spirit (2 Cor 5:17), to bring you into the presence of the Father in heaven. This is the LAW of marriage found in Genesis 2:24 for the first Adam that is re-applied by God spiritually in the Last Adam (Jesus). But this covenant of marriage is between Christ and His bride the church body (Eph 5:31-32).
Now that you know that, we need to get back to our Hebrew letters found in the name “Adam”. We just discovered the Dalet + Mem means moving “Blood” as if alive. Now let us add the first letter “Alef” and place it before the root word “blood”. Remember, that the first letter “Alef” has the most basic meaning of being a representation of “God”, who is the ultimate “beginning” and strong servant. The last part of Adam is “Dalet” + “Mem” (H1818) meaning “blood”. Combine these and we get “God’s blood” or “the blood of God”. Wow! That is pretty amazing information. God has hidden the fact that found in the very first human man, was His very own “blood”. That is pretty remarkable and we can confirm this by reading and studying more in Genesis:
Gen 2:7 And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.
OK, we can read that the body of the man was formed from the dust of the earth. But it had no life until God breathed into Adam His breath (Spirit). God is a Spirit (Jn 4:24). Therefore, God does not breathe created “air” (oxygen). What then did God place in the body of Adam to cause him to become a breathing human? What is God saying to us here? Notice that this action giving life is called the “breath of life”. That is pretty amazing based upon what God says in Leviticus:
Lev 17:11 For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.
Did you notice what God reveals about the life (H5315) of a human body that causes it to be alive? God clearly reveals that it is “blood” that causes physical “life”. God had to place His “blood” in the body of the created man to cause Adam’s physical life to come alive. But that is not all of the truth necessary to know everything that happened to the first Adam when God “breathed” into his nostrils.
Jas 2:26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
Can you begin to see the direct connections being made by the LORD? God says in James, that a human body without their spirit is dead. Then in Leviticus God declares the life of a human body is in their blood. What did God just say? God just said, that if there is no human spirit or blood in their physical body, there is no physical or spiritual life present. This was the case for the body of Adam in Genesis 2. It was not until Adam received the breath of God that life came inside the body. Where then did Adam’s blood and spirit come from? Both of these could have only come from God.
There looks as if there is a new revelation appearing, about the fact that when God breathed (His Spirit) into the nostrils of the lifeless body of the first Adam, that He placed His personal life, inside Adam to give Adam a sinless blood and him a sinless living spirit simultaneously. Uh oh? This information could probably be causing a lot of religious minded people to potentially close their minds. But it is what the Bible says. Adam when created was in a form of a being that could have lived forever, if they had not eaten from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. It was only after sin, that death entered into the world.
What we are learning is that the first created Adam, was created more like the Last Adam Jesus than we might have realized. But because God knew the end from the beginning, God also knew that the first Adam was going to sin and fail. And this fact is why God placed the “Last Adam” inside of the first Adam as a “seed” (Nun). By pre-planting the physical “seed” (Nun) of the “Last Adam” in the physical body of the first Adam pre-sin, God already had the solution for post-sin from the very beginning (Alef). God reveals this by calling Jesus the “Son of Man”. The Hebrew word H121 transliterated as Adam is the exact same word (H120) that was translated as “man”.
These Bible truths may or may not be a new revelation for you, that Jesus our Savior was designed by God into the foundation of the world from the very beginning. God implemented this strategy of making Jesus the pre-planned “slain Lamb of God” from the foundation of our world (Rev 13:8). We can understand that because God knew the end from the beginning (Isa 46:10), He already planned a solution implementation to pay the penalty of human sin and rebellion even before it became a reality need. We are learning that Jesus was not just a thought in the mind of God during creation but was rather a part of God’s designed solution implementation. God’s nature is to provide the solution before the problem is ever known. Nothing surprises Him in the least.
God provided a future body of the Last Adam Jesus the savior of the whole world, by placing His physical body seed “IN” the body of the first Adam when he was created. This is the truth, or otherwise Jesus could not ever be called by the title “Son of Adam/Man (H120)”. But there is a lot more challenging new information to combine with this one. For example, Jesus the Last Adam, is also called the “Son of God” as well as being the “Son of Adam”. That is a new mystery that needs further revelation. How can Jesus the Last Adam, also be a Son of Adam as well as the Son of God? And what else does all of this information about two Adam’s imply?
We need to discover another major new Bible concept, that God says the “first Adam” was also a “son of God”. That may be more challenging than anything that you have ever learned in the Bible. But we are about to discover why this is so important in relationship to our “Blood” Mem letter study.
Please remember in Luke 3:38 that the first Adam was called “the son of God”. I know the word “son” is not in the Greek text, but it is implied strongly by the reference of every pair of men being a father and son relationship that pass their “seed” bloodline to the next generation. Are you going to try to tell us that everyone pair is a father and his son, except the last pair, God and Adam? That would not logically make any sense. Patterns are prophecies of truth in the Bible. Remember this information was already confirmed by knowing that the three letters of the name of Adam meant “God’s blood”. Now notice what God says in this verse:
Act 17:26 And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
God has declared that all people from every nation on the earth, originally came from the blood of God that He placed in the body of the first Adam in Genesis 1-2. There are no races of people, no matter what the tone of the skin color or the physical characteristics. Every human has the same original parents named Adam and Eve and their blood could have only come from God. The fact that all humans came from one woman named Eve, is scientifically proven by observing human DNA origins going backwards from woman to woman until the single common woman that is called our mitochondrial-Eve by Wikipedia. Go read about it for yourself. This information was first published nearly 30 years ago.
What we are learning is very profound. We can begin to see the value that God places upon every human and why it was necessary for Him to come to the earth in person to redeem us. This is why God says in Hebrews 10:14 that it is not possible for the blood of created animals like bulls or goats to take away (human) sin. Why would this be? If man had been given the same kind of blood as animals, it would surely be possible for their innocent blood to pay the price for human sin. Or if God gave His blood to the animals like He did to Adam, that would make us all of the same type. But because humans were the only one that was given God’s blood, God required the same or greater payment to save us. Hebrews 10:14 is just one more confirmation. But let us look at other references in the first chapter of Genesis to further confirm God’s blood was placed inside of Adam:
Gen 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
The Hebrew word translated as “Likeness” in Genesis 1:26 is very important to our subject of the first Adam being God’s son, and having God’s blood. This Hebrew word “H1823” translated as likeness is made with combining 4 Hebrew letters. These letters are the “Dalet”, “Mem”, “Vav” and “Tav”. Wow, now let us place these meanings of each of these letters together to see that they say “Blood” (Dalet+Mem), “Nailed” (Vav) to a “Cross” (Tav). This was obviously God’s original plan for Jesus.
But another definition for this Hebrew word translated as “likeness”, has this meaning in the Ancient Hebrew Lexicon as; “A son from the blood of his father resembles his father”. What we have just reaffirmed is the fact that the first Adam was a son of the creator heavenly Father. This is what amazed the angels that observed God’s creation of the first man Adam (Job 38:7). God places His own Spirit life and blood inside of the body of His created man, and this made him different than any other creation up to this point. The angels in heaven could look at the created first Adam and see a direct family relationship to creator God. It is very much like people can look at my son, and see my characteristics in his looks, actions, characteristics, etc.
Jesus the second man, and last Adam, also possessed the singles pure blood (Mem) of God. It was the fact that Jesus lived His life without sin, that gave Him the right to pay the price of all of us human sinners that were born in the first Adam’s family blood line. Believe it or not this is the truth. God even tells us of this in the Hebrew word prophecy found in the letters of the word translated as “Truth”.
5. God’s (Alef) + “Blood” (Mem) + “Cross” (Tav) = TRUTH
One Hebrew word translated as “truth” is H571. This is an amazing word to our Bible study. This word is spelled with three letters. The first letter is the “Alef” representing Jesus the strong Ox servant. The second letter is our study letter “Mem” representing “blood”. The last letter is “Tav”, representing “the covenant mark of the cross”. Placing these three letters together God gives us the prophecy of “God/Jesus blood on the cross is ultimate truth”. Remember what Jesus said to us in John 8:32? In this verse of very profound revelation, Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free”. Wow, do you see God’s connections to knowing who Jesus was, and whose Spirit and blood was found in His body, by His selection of the spelling of this Hebrew word translated as “TRUTH”?
Jesus just mentioned the word for “Truth” twice in this single statement in John 8:32. Within the context you can clearly see that Jesus is speaking to Jewish people. There is no doubt in my mind or heart, that He was speaking in Hebrew the word “Truth”. Remember that Jesus very plainly claimed to be the “Alef” and the “Tav”, four times in the book of Revelation. This word “Truth” is indirectly connected to that claim because of the beginning and ending letter of the Hebrew word. This would tend to teach us that Jesus also understood what the “Mem” in between represented as being His “blood”.
We have just learned something very significant about two Adam’s. Both of these men originally contained the sinless blood of Almighty God. The first Adam rebelled against God, and this did not faze Him, because He had already planned another Adam to save us all. Because God Himself became this second and last Adam, God could insure and guarantee our salvation personally. We also see why it was necessary for Him to come because of His original man being designated to be so valuable by God placing His own blood inside of his body.
It is the “Mem” spotless blood of Jesus that is the primary emphasis to our study of this ancient Hebrew alphabet letter. Without this blood sacrifice on a cross, we would all be lost and going to hell with Satan. That is the “TRUTH” (Alef+Mem+Tav). Hopefully, you are learning and seeing some new amazing things that were hidden in the spelling of words with God’s “Blood” in them. We will only go through one final section in this lesson, ending with a description of how the water and the blood symbols of the “Mem” were found in the life of Jesus from beginning birth to the ending death.
6. Jesus’ the First and Last – Mem Water and Blood Prophecy Fulfillment
Isa 7:14 Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
We are beginning to wrap up this Mem blood study, by connecting the beginning and the ending of the physical life of Messiah Jesus. Never forget the basis of this entire series originates from the fact that Jesus directly claimed 4 times in the book of Revelation to be the Alef and the Tav, the beginning and the ending. From this information, Jesus implied He was also every other letter of the alphabet that fell between the first and the last. This certainly included the “Mem” water and blood letter.
What we are about to see, is how the life’s beginning and the ending death of Jesus were clearly connected and woven together by God’s designed plan using both of the major Mem symbols of water and blood. We are about to discover how both the beginning of the Jesus’ life and His ending physical death involved His human interaction with natural water and blood. Wow! This is impossible to be a coincidence. This knowledge simply confirms the infinite foreknowledge of God to incorporate every Hebrew letter into the life and ministry of Jesus. It clearly demonstrates God’s extreme intelligent design of every detail including the alphabet letter choices.
What we are about to discover is that the “entrance” of Jesus into the world involved the interaction of both Mem “water and blood”. Then we can notice the exact same two interacting components in the death of Jesus. Let us begin first with the birth of Jesus first using the above prophecy found in Isaiah 7:14.
Why was it necessary for the Messiah to be conceived within, and born from a “virgin” woman? God very specifically prophesies this plan hundreds of years before it was fulfilled in the virgin woman named “Mary”. Think about it? Any woman could get pregnant. Even Sarah at the age of 90, who was well passed the time of having a child normally, suddenly and miraculously had a God promised child. Sarah was a type of the mother of Jesus. Yet she does not come close to matching the profile of the virgin Mary, other than both being miraculous conceptions. It appears this birth of Christ was going to be even more miraculous than that birth of Isaac. In Isaiah 7:14, God reveals this birth will be for a “sign” (H226).
This Hebrew word H226 translated as “sign” is spelled “Alef” + “Vav” + “Tav”. The combination of these three letters reveals the meaning, “God nailed to a cross”. This word can also literally mean the “mark of a covenant agreement” between two parties. We all know Jesus claimed to be the “Alef” (beginning) and the “Tav” (End) four times in the book of Revelation. The joining nail in between these two letters represents a bonding connection. Placing this information together we can get another image of the “beginning” of Jesus being joined with His “end”, and amazingly this occurred in the Gospels very plainly. Let us examine why God selected a virgin woman first as the beginning for Christ’s physical birth.
1Jn 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.
1Jn 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
1Jn 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
These are amazingly parallel verses found in the New Covenant about our subject letter “Mem”. Notice the mention of “Truth” at the end of the verses related to the Spirit of God. Then notice that four times in these three verses, “water” is mentioned directly. Four times in these three verses, “blood” is directly mentioned. Therefore, there is no doubt that we are directly over the target letter “Mem” subject.
Remember in the introduction we were talking about three components H2O that were designed by God to describe one element called “water”. This pattern is found again here, being repeated amazingly in great detail. Let us begin by noticing verse 5 is describing the birth of Jesus. This is strongly implied by God’s usage of the Greek word G2064 that was translated in verse 5 as “came”. To come is a term indicating that a person has been in a previous place and has now manifested in the current location, representing physical earth.
This simply means that Jesus came down from heaven, being sent by His Father who was still there, and it was accomplished by the Holy Spirit overshadowing a woman named Mary. It is very important to note upfront that the child Jesus spent 9 months inside this woman before He “came” into the world. Then you better not forget how this time was spent? These 9 months were God as a developing child surrounded by “Mem” water. That is your first clue that God is about to reveal something more intense is coming.
We can learn all about this reading in Luke chapter 1. God the Father sent an angel to Mary to inform her that she is being favored by God. She is told that she would have a child. She asked the angel how this would be possible, since she had not “known” a man. This simply meant that she was a virgin. That was a great question. The angel then informs her that the Spirit of God would come upon her to cause this child to manifest. Again, we find the entire trinity in the conception of Jesus. The Father in heaven, sent the angel with the “Word” message, the Holy Spirit would come upon Mary, and the Son of God would manifest. That is all another amazing three in one interaction of God.
Ok, that brings us back to what is a virgin and how is this connected with 1 John 5:6? Notice in this verse of 1 John, God reveals Jesus was born with both blood and water being mixed together. How is this possible during child birth? Normally it is not possible. There is never any blood present during normal childbirth. But Mary was a virgin. This meant her hymen was still present in her birth canal. This little piece of skin was designed by God to produce blood flow when torn. Normally this occurs the first time the woman has sexual relations with her husband, but Mary had never experienced this until after Jesus was born (Mat 1:25).
Can we see what God is revealing here? Normal childbirth labor occurs with breaking of the membrane to release the flow of water in the womb. It was this Mem “water” that Jesus the Son of God grew in, until He could be born. When Mary’s water broke, the normal gush of moving fluid exited and was followed by the head of the baby Jesus. During the exit from the womb, Jesus had to have broken the hymen and that would also cause Him to pass through the blood of His mother. Do we understand that the sole created purpose of the hymen in a female, is to bond in covenant with her husband? That sounds a lot like the description of the Hebrew word “H226” that was translated as a “sign”. Do you believe this was a beginning sign for something major that was happening in one of the first works of God in Christ’s birth? Take a look at another verse of significant revelation concerning the birth of Messiah:
Gal 4:4 But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,
As we can see, God sent His Son Jesus, by Him being “made” inside of a Hebrew virgin woman named Mary. Jesus spent the normal duration of 9-months to fulfill the birthing time. But please notice the major emphasis for why He was born of this woman Mary. According to God, Jesus was born of Mary because she was under the Law of Moses, and this fact made her child Jesus to also fall under the same LAW! Uh oh? Let us say this again. Because Mary His mother was under the Law of Moses, Jesus her firstborn son, also was placed under the full Law of Moses. Why was this necessary?
Some ask the question, isn’t it His law already? Didn’t God speak this law to His servant Moses directly? We are not able to teach this revelation as fully as is needed today. God had a problem in heaven after Lucifer sinned and rebelled causing 1/3 of the angels to fall with him. Did you know there were no laws in heaven when Lucifer rebelled against God? Did you also know that in Romans 4:15 God says where there is no law, there is no transgression? This is one of the main reasons why God created Adam on the earth.
God brought about a nation from Abraham that He could introduce His “LAW” through. It was this fact of being under His LAW, that Jesus, who was God in the flesh, manifested. By God placing Himself under the Law of Moses in the flesh, He placed all of His creation under the same LAW and this included Lucifer and every other angelic being, good or evil. Notice what God reveals to us in this verse about the LAW:
Rom 3:19 Now we know that what things soever the law saith, it saith to them who are under the law: that every mouth may be stopped, and all the world may become guilty before God.
God’s Law of Moses only applied to those natural people that were born under His law. This appears to imply that it did not apply to God, nor any other angelic being, nor any other nation that was not in the Old Covenant. This is very amazing implied information being given to us. God appears to be revealing to His saved church, one significant reason for Him being born on the earth, was to place Himself under His own law. What was the reason for this act? According to what we just read; it was to “silence” the mouth of everyone in the world. Who is the god of this world that needed to be silenced? 2 Corinthians 4:4 says Satan is the god of this world that blinds the minds of every unbeliever. Uh oh, we are learning some great new information.
Using this information and other verses in the New Testament we will find that because Jesus could live the LAW as a sinless man, He could pay the price to allow for human salvation, while simultaneously legally rejecting salvation for Satan. Jesus seems to have accomplished this condemnation by His death on the cross:
Joh 16:11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
Notice what Jesus reveals about Himself and His soon coming crucifixion on the cross. This soon coming event of His Tav cross death, according to Jesus appears to be one of the final nails in the coffin on Satan. This is very enlightening information being given to us by God Himself. This is also a very eye-opening new way to look at the verse 1 Corinthians 2:8 for some. In this verse God reveals “If Satan would have known the reason for the life of Jesus, He would have never crucified the LORD of glory!”. Are you beginning to see why? Jesus living in the flesh under the Law of Moses, and never breaking the LAW, could have lived forever in His sinless state or existence. He would have never been able to die. If there would have never been a death, there would have been no burial. If there would have been no burial, there would have been no resurrection from the “dead” of anyone. But because Jesus was the “Firstborn” from the dead, He gained preeminence over Satan for eternity separating God from the realm of darkness totally and completely. This could all occur because God came into the world born of a woman under the law through His water and blood interaction.
We will not go through all of the other verses of 1 John 5 in this lesson today. It would take literally books of new information to reveal everything God is saying to us about the spirit, blood and water connections in the life of Jesus. What we should conclude is Jesus was intentionally born into the world passing through both “water” and “blood”, which are the two major meanings of the “Mem” pictogram. But now let us move to the end of the life of Jesus to see how these same two substances are again mentioned and joined together at His ending death. Please notice, that none of this is a coincidence.
It just so happens that one of the last recorded events that befell the natural body of the LORD Jesus, occurred while the body was still hanging on the cross. During this event there occurred the mixing of both Mem “blood” and “water”, that fell upon the ground. And this sounds like the birth of Jesus exactly.
Joh 19:33 But when they came to Jesus, and saw that he was dead already, they brake not his legs:
Joh 19:34 But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.
Joh 19:35 And he that saw it bare record, and his record is true: and he knoweth that he saith true, that ye might believe.
Joh 19:36 For these things were done, that the scripture should be fulfilled, A bone of him shall not be broken.
Joh 19:37 And again another scripture saith, They shall look on him whom they pierced.
This is really amazing how God accomplished this work. God by His infinite foreknowledge knew everything that would take place on crucifixion day including the exact time that it would occur. We are only going to focus upon verse 34 for our Mem study lesson. Soldiers were coming to every man crucified, to break their legs to speed up their deaths since it was getting close to 6 PM that began the new day Sabbath evening. Jews demanded that these 3 men, not be left on the cross to defile their Sabbath. Isn’t it interesting how the number 3 has appeared again. When the soldiers came to Jesus, they were surprised that he was already dead.
But for good measure to ensure His death, one soldier took a spear and with its sharp point pierced the body into the heart of the Lamb of God. Instantly after the spear was extracted from the body of Jesus, both blood and water flowed out upon the ground. Wow, that is both of the major symbols of the Ancient Hebrew Mem letter picture. This just cannot be a coincidence; it is definitely another major sign of the intelligent design of an all-knowing God.
Notice the connection in this passage again to 1 John 5:8. The Spirit of Jesus leaves His physical body, and the body is dead. Then the spear is placed into the physical body and the “water” and “blood” is poured out on the ground. What did John say in 1 John 5:8? These three agree in one, the spirit, the blood and the water. Did not all of these just leave the body of Messiah? What were the three witnesses saying in agreement?
- Without the “Spirit” the body is dead,
- Without the “blood” the body is dead,
- Without “water” the body is dead.
What we have just seen in this section, was the beginning birth process and entrance of Jesus involved by a passing through Mary’s natural bodily “water” and “blood” fluids. But before this natural birth of Jesus occurred, she heard the Word of God and believed it to receive it. Then the Holy Spirit comes upon Mary passing even to her spirit through her bodily fluids of both “water” and “blood”, in order to cause her to be physically impregnated in her womb. When this happened the Word of God became “Flesh” (Jn 1:14), and this grew a new manifestation of God as an unborn child called the Son of God, Jesus. God’s Spirit now lived inside of a natural woman in a sack of “water”, surrounded by her “blood” being fed by an attached umbilical cord.
Now consider this additional factor of Mem “water” and “blood” in this birth process. The union of Mary’s physical egg with God’s Word/Seed caused a baby to begin to develop. In as few as 5 weeks this God/Man baby had the basic structure of a heart that caused the flow of “blood” through the continuing to grow body’s circulatory system. Wow, this is amazing. Now we have a self-contained body unit inside of His mother’s self-contained body unit. Mary’s body being a daughter of Adam, Abraham, Judah and David had sin’s corruption within it. What allowed God in the flesh to be inside this sinful woman and her not to drop dead in God’s presence inside?
The answer is found in the previous stated fact that declares Jesus’ body to be a self-contained independent temple of God. The growing baby inside Mary’s womb, as we learned previously had the incorruptible blood of God, that was sinless and spotless. It was just one drop of this powerful blood that was immediately able to pay the full sin debt of all humans in the entire time of man’s history on the earth. It was also this blood that had allowed God in the flesh to touch the sinful woman Mary’s body, and her not fall dead instantly. In the mind of God, the Lamb of God growing inside Mary’s body had already been slain when Adam sinned. This is why Jesus could walk up to sinful humans and say to them in advance before His natural death, “your sins are forgiven”. He knew what was going to happen in just a short time.
That was a lot of uses by God, of Mem “blood” and “water” interactions. We will see even more examples of this in the next lesson that will focus upon the subject of “water” predominantly, the Lord be willing. But all of these cooperating works in agreement of God’s Spirit, Water, and Blood is what gave Him the legal right to be physically born as a human baby into the world (Jn 10:1).
Now combine the beginning entrance of Jesus into the world, with the legal witness of His exit out of the world. As we learned previously God’s usage of “blood” and “water” and His Spirit were witnesses to both situations. Did you know “blood” is a witness? We read in Genesis 4 where the blood of Able cried to God from the ground. This established the fact that “blood” speaks even after death as a witness to his murder. Did you know also, that the Blood of Jesus also speaks? In Hebrews 12:24, we find where God says “The blood of Jesus speaks better things than the blood of Able”. Now we have just learned some amazing truths.
We have also established a fact that both the birth and the death of Jesus were witnessed by three realities of the same substances. The first was the Spirit of God. The second was the “blood” of God, and the third was the word of God. I know you thought that was supposed to say the “water” of God. But in the next lesson, we will confirm this Mem “water” represents God’s spoken Words. We can already begin to see this reading in John 1:1 where God says, “In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God and the Word was God”.
Now combine John 1:1 with Genesis 1:1-3. “In beginning God (Elohim + Alef-Tav) created the heaven and the earth, and the Spirit of the Lord brooded over the waters, And God said, “let there be light”.
There appears to be an even greater usage of God of His water and blood hanging on a cross than we might have ever seen before. Remember that it is the blood that was poured out of the vessel of the body of Jesus that establishes the New Covenant creation of God. This is why Jesus could cry with a loud voice hanging on the cross “It is Finished”, speaking of God’s old creation containing Lucifer. The ending last natural work of Christ on a cross was for Him to supply an offering of His blood and water for the full one-time payment and cleansing of all human sin. That is amazing! Thank you, Jesus! It was the witness of these three elements, Spirit, Blood, and Water (Words), that gave God the legal right to raise Christ back from the dead, after the first Adam’s human sin penalty was fully paid for in three days.
7. MEM – BLOOD CONCLUSION
It was God’s powerful, wonderful and amazing Mem “Blood” that purchased us out of an eternity of spiritual death separation abiding in hell. It was God’s blood that caused every human sin to be able to be cleansed and removed from God’s judgment. We have been focusing upon the Mem “Blood” substance representing the blood of Jesus, our LORD and Savior. We have explored several Hebrew words that contain the “Mem” blood letter. We learned about Jesus coming to the earth “to die” two deaths that were revealed to happen in Genesis 2, if Adam sinned. God had pre-planned the solution to this problem by already establishing a pathway of blood for the Last Adam to be born as a baby child in Bethlehem.
We further studied the fact that the name “Adam” means “God’s Blood”. We further studied the Hebrew word translated as “Likeness” confirmed Adam had the blood of God in His body. This teaches us how valuable created man was to God from the very beginning. The first man Adam was made slightly lower than God Himself and certainly above the angelic class of beings. But He fell below them becoming in need of a great sacrifice to save us.
We also learned the Hebrew word translated as “TRUTH” is Jesus the Alef and the Tav joined with the “Mem” blood connector. We will always be eternally grateful to what God did to become a human to bring about a clean blood supply from heaven to pay the price of all of our sins. Thank you, Jesus! This was only “Part 1” of the Mem study subject. The LORD willing, we will learn the Mem “water” application to Jesus in “Part 2”. We appreciate your time in studying the Bible with us. Satan literally hates these lessons because they are blessing so many people.
