Continuing my studies yesterday of the slight differences in the Gospels, I came across this.
Mt 13:8-9 (Ch 13, 13 symbolizes rebellion)
8But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
9Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
**Note the 100, 60, 30** Hebrew letters have values, and symbolism. In the pictures included in this post, the letters would be Qoof, Samech, and Lamed, read left to right the way Hebrew is read.
The symbols are first Children of Promise (as was Israel, chosen by God), then Pride (which they demonstrated), then Blood Sacrifice (which was required to cover their sins).
Compare it to Mk 4:8-9 (Ch 4, 4 symbolizes the open door)
8And other fell on good ground, and did yield fruit that sprang up and increased; and brought forth, some thirty, and some sixty, and some an hundred.
9And he said unto them, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
**The numbers are listed in reverse order*"
The symbols are in reverse order, read right to left as Gentiles generally do. First comes the Blood Sacrifice (Jesus), covering our Pride (sin), and that results in Children of Promise (reconciled and made righteous by the blood of the lamb). Bookends, just like the design of the Menorah!
Now look at Lk 8:8 (Ch 8, 8 symbolizes a new creation)
8And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.
**Only 100 is mentioned and the verse hasn't been separated so that the warning isn't verse 9. Nine symbolizes judgement**
ONLY Children of Promise is included in the letter Qoof. But Qoof isn't just Children of Promise... it's also "Least/Last."
The first shall be last, and the last shall be first.
More incredible precision in God's word.
