Spoke 4

Isaiah 26 chain Perfect Peace

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:

The great theme of Spoke 4 - established in the Fourth Commandment (Sabbath Rest) and echoed throughout the Inner Wheels and Cycles - manifests in God's magnficent promise of perfect peace for those who trust in Him. The Hebrew reveals more of the deep and mysterious relationship between words containing the consonants STR and FR, as seen in the sidebox. This pattern runs through many languages, including English, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. The words Tessera and Yetsirah are Greek and Hebrew for Four and Formation. I believe the origin is in the divine powers revealed through Tsaddi and Dalet. Geomtrically, it integrates with the structural nature of the Number 4 - which manifests with outstanding clarity in the revelation of the Foursquare Temple in Ezekiel on Spoke 4.

Strength

Strength is pic (Tsur, S# H6697). This word is most intringuing because here we see the fundamental STR - FR link manifesting straight from the Hebrew to the English:

STRength = TSuR

In general, Tsur means Rock and is used as a metanym for God, as in Psalm 18.31:

For who is God save the LORD? or who is a rock (tzur) save our God? It is God that girdeth me with strength, and maketh my way perfect.

The idea of formation has to do with binding and restricting things until the desired form is achieved, usually through the passage of time, as it is written in Galatians 4:

Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father. Even so we, when we were children, were in bondage under the elements of the world: But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.

This binding of the child (which was our condition until Christ came - bound in sin) is necessary for the formation of the soul. It happened in the history of Isael too in the land of Mitzarim (Egypt), specifically called the House of Bondage. The name Mitzarim (S# H4714) is cognate with Tsur (S# H6696) in the sense of confinement, binding, or formation. It carries overtones of the large stone formations characteristic of that land.

The root Tsur ultimately derives from the verb Tsarar (Strait, S# H6887). This means "strait" as in "narrow" - the opposite of wide. For example, we find this word in I Samuel 13.6: "they were in a strait [Tsur], (for the people were distressed,)" and in Job 36.16 "out of the strait into a broad place." We have here a strong match between the Hebrew Tsur and English STRait.

Mind, Imagination

Mind is pic (Yetstar, S# H3336). This word is usually translated as imagination, from the sense of forming or framing ideas. It comes from the root verb of the same spelling Yatsar (S# H3335) which means to form, fashion, or frame. It is the root of the name of the Sepher Yetzirah, meaning Book of Formation. We have therefore, another extremely cogent Hebrew - English link between an STR and FR word. It is this part of the soul - the Yetser - that is most volatile, especially in this day of flashing fleshly images thrown in the face of everyone everywhere. It is a very dangerous time - we are in the midst of the greatest attack on the soul ever seen in the history the world.

This verse teaches us how to overcome in this polluted world by fixing our minds upon the name of the Lord - writing His Name on our forehead, as it were. His Name is a strong Rock (Tsur), and in His Name we have everlasting strength.

Keep

Keep is pic (Natstar, S# H5341). This word is particularly intriguing. It is profoundly linked with the Name of Jesus of Nazareth. It generally means to keep, watch over or preserve. It is translated as Branch in Isaiah 11.1: "And there shall come forth a rod out of the stem of Jesse, and a Branch [Netsar] shall grow out of his roots." Netsar is the root of the name Nazareth, which in Hebrew is pic (Notsri), which also is how Jews refer to Christians. I am a Notsri - literally a Nazarene, but also a pun on the word for a Watchman or Guard. And this defines the relation between the Lord Jesus Christ and all His sheep - He is the Great Shepherd, the Watchman and Guard of our souls! He never slumbers nor sleeps!

I believe that this is probably the meaning of the prophecy in Matthew 2.23:

And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophets, He shall be called a Nazarene.

And now we can find the place of our perfect peace, and stand in awe of the Wisdom of God. We have the following pair of identities:

Perfect Peace

Shalom Shalom

= 752 =

Jesus of Nazareth

pic

Yehoshuah HaNotsri

The value of this Divine Name is very close to the value of Yehoshuah HaMesshiah (Jesus Christ, GR n754) discussed at some length in the Divine Chariot article.

Finally, this integrates with the great Spoke 4 theme of the Name of God - the Tetragrammaton - through this magnificent identity from Psalm 33.21:

For our heart shall rejoice in him, because we have trusted in his holy name.

We have the identity:

In His Holy Name

pic

B'Shem Qadsho

= 752

This is where the Christian finds his or her peace - in the name of Jesus of Nazareth! Glory!
