Remember the sabbath day, the keep it holy.
Fourth Commandment (Exodus 20.8)
The Fourth Commandment displays the mysterious interaction between the numbers 4 and 7, seen also in
the Four Thousand fed with Seven Loaves (Matthew 16.10), in
Isaiah 4, and elsewhere.
The relations between the Fourth Commandment, Holiness, and the Sabbath are amplified through
these two very interesting identities:
The Number 404 is also the value of (dat) which is translated as "law" in Deuteronomy 33:2:
And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them;
he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a
fiery law (dat) for them.
In modern Hebrew, dat denotes both law and religion.
It is composed of a Dalet (Door) and
Tav (Cross), and so we have religion associated with a "cross on a door" which obviously
rings many Christian bells. Here is how John J. Parson explains it on his most excellent site,
The word for religion is (dat), which means the
"door of the cross"
using the ancient pictographs. The Father (Aleph) sent
His Son (Bet) and by means of
the Holy Spirit (Gimmel) who makes appeal to the poor and needy to receive the grace of
the LORD God of Israel. As Yeshua said, "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" (Rev. 3:20)
I added hyperlinks to relevant articles on this site which show the complete agreement between Parson's explanations and
mine. This is yet another example of the objective nature of this study, just as we saw in the work of the
Hebrew Word Pictures of Dr. Frank T. Seekins. Independent researchers consistently arrive at the
same understanding of both the symbolism and the theology of the Hebrew letters. But the greater miracle is to see these universally
recognized meanings manifest in the geometric structure of Holy Scripture.
