Five Outstanding Names
Shalom to all who love the Bible and the Roots of The Faith of Messiah.
I have written a new book on "The Mystery Of The Tzitzit On The Hebrew Prayer Shawl - A Provocative Study on the Value of the Tzitzit." What you're about to read comes from this book and is only some of the insights into the Gematria and Codes, which can be found in it my second book. The book is about the Mystery of the Tzitzit, which is the most important part of the Prayer Shawl Jewish people wear.
In a wonderful book written by Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, "God in Search of Man" - we read the following on page 34:
"The Greeks learned in order to comprehend. The Hebrew learned in order to revere. The modern man learns in order to use. To Bacon we owe the formulation, "Knowledge is power." This is how people are urged to study: knowledge means success. We do not know any more how to justify any value except in terms of expediency. Man is willing to define himself as "a seeker after the maximum degree of comfort for the minimum expenditure of energy." He equates value with that which avails. He feels, acts, and thinks as if the sole purpose of the universe were to satisfy his needs. To the modern man everything seems calculable; everything reducible to a figure. He has supreme faith in statistics and abhors the idea of a mystery. Obstinately he ignores the fact that we are all surrounded by things which we apprehend but cannot comprehend; that even reason is a mystery to itself. He is sure of his ability to explain all mystery away."
Heaven prohibits that the last line of the above quote, to be true!
But you've asked, "Is Gematria kosher with God?"
Yes beloved of God, God uses it and John made Gemtria kosher by his use of it in the Holy Bible! Lets take a look at it...
John in the book of Revelations used Gematria.
17 And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six. (KJV)
With a Hebrew understanding it would read this way:
|17| and that no one should be able to buy or to sell except the one having the tav [mark], the name of the Chayyah or the number of its name.
|18| Here is chochmah: the one having binah, let him do the gematria and get the mispar of the Chayyah, for it is the mispar of the ish [Anti-Moshiach], and the mispar of it is SHESH ME'OT V'SHISHIM VASHESH.

Five Outstanding Names
Now in Genesis 38:11-28, encoded in the Hebrew text at 49 letter intervals ELS (equi-distant letter sequence), we find David's ancestry in their exact chronological order. We find Ruth, Boaz, Obed, Jesse, and David hidden in the Hebrew text. Five outstanding names that without there would be no Davidic dynasty, and consequently no seed by which Messiah could come. The odds of this happening by chance are outrageously high according to Dr. Moshe Katz, who wrote about it in his book, "COMPUTORAH."
The number 49 is very important in the Bible. After the 49th year, the 50th year was to be a Jubilee year for Israel. All lands etc., were to revert back to the original owner. It is God's way of balancing the scales for His people. After 49 days of counting the Omer, you have the 50th day, which is Shavuot the day the Torah was given at Mt. Sinai to Moses. Then many years later on another Shavuot, the Holy Spirit was poured out on the Believing Congregation of Israel, Acts 2.
But what of the number 49 in relationship to the Tzitzit?
Can we see anything of importance? Let's look!
The first appearance of the following 8 phrases in the Word of God leading up to Genesis 38 all have one thing in common, can you guess what? Keep in mind once again that the number 8 is the number of Resurrection and Life, and a Higher thing in the Bible. Its also the number of new begininings.
1. She bore--------Genesis
2. To a nation---------Genesis 12:2-----
3. And make great-------Genesis 12:2-----
4. Moab---------------------Genesis 19:37-----
5. The child-------------------Genesis 21:8-------
6. Was born---------------------Genesis 24:15-------
7. From the way (coming)--------Genesis 24:62--------
8. Unto his father---------------------Genesis 27:31-------
What they all have in common is that if you add up the Value (Gematria) of the Hebrew letters of each one of these 8 phrases or words in their first appearance in Scripture, they all yield the total number of 49. Now look at them in the form of a sentence and see a Sod (a deeper meaning), one placed there by the Spirit of The Living God in the Word!
"She bore to a nation and make great Moab.
The child was born from the way unto his Father."
Rev. Barbara DiGilio
Or you can read it this way:
"She bore to a nation and make (changed, turned, convert, transformed), great Moab. The child was born from the way (coming) unto his Father."
This speaks so loudly to me of Ruth the Moabitess and her coming to the God of Israel. Now what does God do? He gives her a kinsman redeemer so that He might bring forth the Holy Seed of David, Messiah Yeshua! The Hebrew word Moab means: "seed of the father." Let's read God's Holy Word on the subject:
12 And let thy house be like the house of Pharez, whom Tamar bare unto Judah, of the seed which YHVH shall give thee of this young woman.
13 So Boaz took Ruth, and she was his wife: and when he went in unto her, and had intercourse with her, and YHVH gave her conception, and she bare a son.
14 And the women said unto Naomi, Blessed YHVH, which hath not left thee this day without a kinsman, that his name may be famous in Israel.
15 And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in-law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath born him.
16 And Naomi took the child, and laid it in her bosom, and became nurse unto it.
17 And the women, her neighbours, gave it a name, saying, There is a son born to Naomi; and they called his name Obed: he is the father of Jesse, the father of David.
18 Now these are the generations of Pharez: Pharez begat Hezron,
19 And Hezron begat Ram, and Ram begat Amminadab,
20 And Amminadab begat Nahshon, and Nahshon begat Salmon,
21 And Salmon begat Boaz, and Boaz begat Obed,
22 And Obed begat Jesse, and Jesse begat David. AGI
(See Shemology 1 (The Geneology of Ruth)
For more revelation on the genealogy in the book of Ruth, see my first book, "SO WHAT DO YOU THINK?." In it you will find a Shemology (message from the Hebrew names) in the genealogy, set there like a rare gem showing you a complete picture of Messiah description.
An important truth must be pointed out here about God's Skirt (His Garment) before we go on with Ruth. Once again we will see the Hebrew word that spells Tzitzit = 590, also spells the Hebrew word "Spread." We told you before in our book that the Gematria of the Hebrew word Tzitzit all by itself = 590, not 600 as some Jews teach.
In Ezekiel 16:8-14, we read:
8 Now when I passed by thee Israel, and looked upon you, behold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy nakedness: ( This is a very intimate role the LORD is taking here.) yea, I swear unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee, (He married Israel) saith YHVH Elohim, and thou became mine.
9 Then washed I thee with Water,Torah; yea, I thoroughly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.
10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.
11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.
12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a beautiful crown upon thine head. AGI
Then in Zechariah 8:23, we read:
23 Thus saith YHVH of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt, prayer shawl of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you. AGI
Ruth, from Moab, a Righteous Gentile
The Rabbis tell us that Ruth placed herself under the shadow of God's Wings (The Divine Presence) by uncovering the skirt at Boaz's feet and slipping herself under that garment. Rav Shlomo ben Yitzchok, better known as Rashi said, "corner of a garment, i.e. place the corner of your garment over me as a token of marriage." And according to Rabbi Shmuel de Uzeda who wrote a large commentary on Ruth, entitled Iggeres Shmuel, "take me as your wife with a proper wedding ceremony." Can you guess what that skirt or garment was? Here's a clue: it had "wings" on all 4 of it's corners?
That's right, it's the skirt or garment with the Tzitziot (plural of Tzitzit) on it that was spread over her, a prayer shawl! She was under the shadow of EL Shaddi's Wings and it brought her into His Presence, and Boaz had to try and redeemed her. That is just what Yeshua Messiah does for all who come into His Presence, under His Wings.
Yeshua redeems us, restores us, He heals us, He gives us all the good things of Heaven. That is what God will some day do for all of Israel.
26 And yes, all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, "There shall come out of Zion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:
27 For this is My Covenant unto them (Israel), when I shall take away their sins. AGI
Can we stop here at this point and behold His Glory for a moment.
Halleluyah, Halleluyah to our God, and His Redeemer, our Bridegroom, Yeshua our Messiah. Halleluyah, Baruch Ha Shem, Bless His Holy Name. Amen!
The Covering that our LORD Spreads,
is the Best Covering of All!
