14. The mem: .
The mem is the thirteenth letter of the Hebrew alphabet. The mem has the meaning of ‘water’ and is derived from the word majim, . The number value of the mem () is 40. But because the letter is also used as sophit letter, the letter can have in that form () the number value 600. But most of the time the value 40 is used.
40=23x5 or 8x5
8 and 5 are respectively the reduced numbers of Yahweh (262+6=8) and Elohim (868+6=141+4=5) The sum of 5 and 8 is 13, and the multiplication is 40. The 13th letter of the alphabet has the number value 40. In the center of all possible divisors of 112, the number 112 itself excluded, we find the fifth divisor, being 8. The multiplication of central divisor and its order number is 5x8=40:
The mem is unique in this, for there is no other letter of the Hebrew alphabet where this mathematical phenomenon occurs. Probably is this one of the reasons that this letter has a special meaning. You might call this letter ‘holy’ or ‘perfect’. It is the starting letter of the word ‘messiah’, the anointed, . The anointed is the redeemer who stands up for us, the gavel, : 30+1+6+3=40 (Jes.59:20).
The 13th and the 24th letter of the alphabet become connected by God and His Name by means of triangular numbers:
The number 2236 is 26x86, God x His Name= x . This expresses the activity or connection with the mem, letter 13, , and letter 24, .
This is the CV Jesus, Jehoshua, when the hee is added to the name Jeshua (386), just like the hee is added to the the name of Abram, so that his name became Abraham.
The value of the 24th letter, the mem as sophit letter, is 600; in factors is that:
So the essence of the 24th letter is:
Place x essence:
24 x 37
, Jesus, savior.
Now is 37 the 13th prime. So the truth (=prime) of 13 is 37. On letter place 13 the and the become joined together. The sum of the letter places of the mem (13) and the mem sophit (24) is: 13+24=37. The value of the mem is on the 13th place: 40.
Truth x value:
37 x 40
, Christ, the anointed.
The word ‘forty’ in Hebrew is: arbajim, =40+10+70+2+200+1=323 (Gen.5:13)
We see that the essence of the word ‘forty’ also 37 is. The meaning or value x essence is here also 40x37=1480, the number value van Christ. The sum of the letter places of the mem in the alphabet is: 13+24=37, and the sum of the letter values of the mem and the mem sophit is 40+600=640.
Sum of alphabet places x sum of values:
10x , Jesus Christ, 2368.
The forty is the water, the water of Life that God gives us to drink by mouth of Jesus. It is also Jesus who walks over the waters to his disciples (Math.14:25, John.6:19). We also see that Jesus appears in the 40th bible book: Matthew. The bible has 66 books of which 39 in the OT and 27 books in the NT. Therefore the book Matthew is the 40th book of the bible. There Jesus appears for the first time as a man in the bible. The meaning of the name Matthew is: God's gift.
The truth of 40 gets expressed by the 40th prime, which is 167. The sum of these two numbers is: 40+167=207. This is the number of the light, , 200+6+1=207. In John 8:12 Jesus tells that he is that light: When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. The light appears at the 27th word of the bible in Gen.1:3; the 27th composite is 40.
Further appears the 40th composite to be 57; the sum is 40+57=97. This is the 26th prime, the number of Yahweh. Prime 97 expresses the truth of 26. This truth of Yahweh becomes reflected in the life of Jesus. The 97th palindrome is 888, the number of , Jesus.
An other indication that Jesus is related to the mem can be found in the number of mems that can be found in the Torah. The Torah is the core book (or 5 books) of the bible. There are 25090 mem's in the Torah. In factors that is:
The first mem in the Torah is letter 14. It's the last letter of the first time that Elohim in the text appears. The last mem of the Torah is letter 304791. It is here the first letter of the word Moses who is supposed the be the writer of the Torah, although he never can have written the last verses concerning his own death. Together they place their signature under the Torah:
God - Mozes
304805 is the number of letters of the Torah. The same phenomenon can be found with the resh, . This letter has the meaning of ‘head’. The first resh is letter 2 in the first word berashit and the last resh is letter 304803, the central letter of Israel, . God starts with> Israel, berashit Israel, . Also by the hee, , ‘the window’, occurs this phenomenon: the first hee is letter 12, the last hee is letter 304793:
God - Moses
God gives by means of Moses and the Torah a window, a glance, at His Plans.
