The Universal Doors of Birth and Death
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.
Galatians 4:1f (Spoke 4, Cycle 3)
The Name of the Fourth Letter, דלת (Dalet), signifies a Door.
It represents the two universal doors by which we all enter
and exit this world, birth and death. This manifests in the chapter
structure of Genesis, where the first birth,
the first death, and
the first use of the word door are all found in
Birth and death are two of the most humbling experiences of life. Both are characterized
by complete weakness. Such themes are found in the Dalet portions of the
- AV Psalm 119:25 My soul cleaveth (דבקה, davkah) unto the dust:
quicken thou me according to thy word.
- AV Psalm 119:28 My soul melteth (דלף, dalaph)
for heaviness: strengthen thou me according unto thy word.
- AV Lamentations 4:4 The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth
to the roof of his mouth for
thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them.
This theme relates to the Dalet KeyWord דל (Dal), which means
poor, weak, and powerless, as explained
in the article discussing the four weak and beggarly elements mentioned in
the book of Galations on Spoke 4.
Dalet is also deeply integrated with the structure of the twenty-two chapters of Revelation.
This is particularly evident in the first verse of
Revelation 4 where we read:
"After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven."
The Inner Wheel of Revelation is precisely analogous to the Alphabetic Psalms which
were deliberately designed in accordance with the Hebrew Alphabet. Yet this is but
the beginning. The whole chapter of Revelation 4
is deeply integrated with elements from Spoke 4, such as the four living creatures and
of God which linked with many KeyLinks to Ezekiel. Furthermore, Ezekiel contains
density of the Number 4 in all the Bible, and Revelation 4 contains the greatest density
within the Book of Revelation, and both of these portions of Scripture speak of the same thing!
The significance of the facts that the English word first occurs in Genesis 4, and is featured in
Revelation 4 is infinitely amplified when we search the entire KJV for all occurrences of the
words door or gate (and all associated words such as doors, doorway, etc, symbolized as door*). The
results are astounding:
The primary contribution is from Ezekiel which describes the structure of the foursquare temple, though there
are also significant contributions from the earlier chpaters. For example, doors and gates appear
repeatedly in the vision given in Ezekiel 8, as discussed in Behold, A Door.
