Join the left and right hands of two people at the pinkies keeping both hands even one to the other with fingers joined tightly together. Then join the two sets of left and right hands together at the middle fingers with back of hands down and palms up. The space not filled within all hands should form what looks like a cross. Could it be possible that God left a sign to humankind in our hands? If so, the sign may be a two-fold message. The 4 hands need to be in the open position in order to reveal the shape of the cross. This open position puts those human hands in the position to receive. The 2nd part of the message points to what is to be received. What is to be received is the message or gospel of the cross of Jesus and the plan of salvation for humanity, the joining together of the family of humanity into God’s family by spiritual grafting. Is it pure coincidence that 4 hands need to be joined together to see what looks like the shape of a cross? What is the significance of the number 4? Can one infer that its meaning could be tied to the messiah coming into this world by the order of birth? See the below verses that correspond. 

8 The LORD God planted a garden in Eden, in the east, and placed there the man whom He had formed. (Gen 2:8 TNK)

15 Yeshua said to her, “Lady, why are you crying? Whom are you looking for?” Thinking he was the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you’re the one who carried him away, just tell me where you put him; and I’ll go and get him myself.” (Joh 20:15 CJB)

*Truly, truly I say to you, ala grain of wheat, except it fall and die in the ground, remains alone. But if it dies, it will produce much fruit.”1 (Joh 12:24 MGI Magiera Peshitta translation with foot notes 2006)

16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only and unique Son, so that everyone who trusts in him may have eternal life, instead of being utterly destroyed. (Joh 3:16 CBJ)

Jesus is the from the tribe of Judah. The tribe of Judah is the forth tribe of Israel (Jacob). This forth place is in the order starting from oldest (first born) son. Judah was the fourth born son from Jacob and Leah. The divine being or the Son of God in the book of Daniel chapter 3 verse 25 is in the consecutive order of the number 4. There were 3 men in the furnace according to king Nebuchadnezzar, but the fourth man appeared. Could the number of four have been assigned to that divine being or Son of God by pure coincidence? That number 4 was assigned in the bible to the messiah’s tribe by the order of birth. It is Jesus that came to give us eternal life. Jesus has absolutely no intention of harming us. This is plain to see in the plan of salvation for humanity.

23 The sons of Leah: Reuben — Jacob’s first-born — Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun. (Gen 35:23 TNK)

25 He answered, “But I see four men walking about unbound and unharmed in the fire and the fourth looks like a divine being.”
26 Nebuchadnezzar then approached the hatch of the burning fiery furnace and called, “Shadrach, Meshach, Abed-nego, servants of the Most High God, come out!” So Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego came out of the fire. (Dan 3:25-26 TNK)

11 Like a shepherd He pastures His flock: He gathers the lambs in His arms And carries them in His bosom; Gently He drives the mother sheep.
(Isa 40:10-11 TNK)

Elohiym YHWY Sowed Himself With His Own Word.  He is the gardener that sowed His seed (Word) into this world. In the below verse 25  in chapter 3 of the book of Daniel the Lord God gives us a clue of this in the possessive use of the Hebrew word “ben” which is “bar” ( The king Nebuchadnezzar used the possessive form of the Hebrew word ben which is bar. While the translation of the Tanakh is reliable, it does not help to enlighten but obfuscates the possessive use of the Hebrew word ben. The king Nebuchadnezzar saw the man appear out of nowhere. Therefore, he concluded that that divine being was a divine being’s son. It is further on in the bible the name of the Divine being’s Son is exegeted in the book of Isaisah chapter 7 verse 14 as Emmanuel. Emmanuel means God with us. Hence, this divine being has a Heavenly Father who would be with humanity in the flesh of Emmanuel, the Son of God. It is not improper to call this being Son of God. I say this because Jesus said no other ascended or descended. See the following verse: “No one has gone up into heaven; there is only the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man (Joh 3:13 CJB).” Why would the Messiah plant himself into this world? One of the reasons He did this is because He would prove He was not from this world but came from above and didn’t need a physical posterity to establish His blood line (Da Vinci Code conspiracy). The other reason is that His spiritual posterity needed to be established in order for His divine blueprint human glorified body to be prepared to make His spiritual posterity plain for all to see at the time of the catching up of the holy ones (rapture). He wanted to plant himself into this world to gain a harvest of spiritual children. This is so plain to see in the most common verse in the bible, namely, John 3:16. See below the verses that correspond and the Holloday lexicon entry for the Hebrew word “לְבַר־אֱלָהִֽין” and the analysis for this Hebrew word from WTM Morphology.

The fourth man in the fire is a type of the perfection of humanity in the human like flesh of the son of the Lord God. Perhaps there is a hidden message within the names of the three men in the furnace with the fourth man. The names of these three are Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. Shadrach means “royal” or “the great scribe” ( The meaning of Meshach is “shadow of the prince” ( The meaning of Abednego is “servant of light; shining” ( When put together, the meanings of these names may form a coherent message. This message may be (the) royal, the great scribe (and) shadow of the prince (is) the shining servant of  light. Jesus is the preeminent revelation of the Lord God that always existed. Jesus is the preeminent, currently eminent, and post eminent revelation of the Lord God. The Lord God exegetes His Son and the Son exegetes His Father.

17 “Shim’on Bar-Yochanan,” Yeshua said to him, “how blessed you are! For no human being revealed this to you, no, it was my Father in heaven. (Mat 16:17 CJB)

18 No one has ever seen God; but the only and unique Son, who is identical with God and is at the Father’s side – he has made him known. (Joh 1:18 CJB)

27 “My Father has handed over everything to me. Indeed, no one fully knows the Son except the Father, and no one fully knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son wishes to reveal him. (Mat 11:27 CJB)

Notice in the above message above that this Son of God (translation of some bible translations) or divine being’s name is unknown. This may be because He was not to be revealed to the world until His incarnation into the world. This is why I rely on the meanings of the other three men that were in the furnace with Him in order to exegete His message. If this divine being wanted to reveal a hidden message, it is possible He may have chosen to conceal His name in order to allow the illustration of the names of the other 3 men to be tools to exegete His hidden message. If this is a possible way of going about getting the hidden message known, then let’s examine the message a little more. Notice how He may be described as “the great scribe” possibly because He is the Word of the Lord God. He is also described as the shadow of the prince because He was not revealed yet! He was the shadow of the prince to come. See the following verse: “He answered, “But I see four men walking about unbound and unharmed in the fire and the fourth looks like a divine being (Dan 3:25 TNK).” The fire may represent the flame of the Lord God’s Spirit in the Messiah. I say this because Jesus, the Messiah did have the Spirit of the Lord God without measure. King Nebuchadnezzar intended to place the 3 Hebrew men into the fire to kill them to wipe out their existence. However, the Lord God used the fire to give a fiery revelation of the Messiah that would come into covenant with the Lord God to give you everything Jesus promised He would give you.

30 Jacob asked, “Pray tell me your name.” But he said, “You must not ask my name!” And he took leave of him there. (Gen 32:30 TNK)

18 The angel said to him, “You must not ask for my name; it is unknowable!” (Jdg 13:18 TNK)

27 The spirit of man is the lamp of the LORD, searching all the inward parts. (Pro 20:27 JPS)

11 For who knows the inner workings of a person except the person’s own spirit inside him? So too no one knows the inner workings of God except God’s Spirit.
12 Now we have not received the spirit of the world but the Spirit of God, so that we might understand the things God has so freely given us.
13 These are the things we are talking about when we avoid the manner of speaking that human wisdom would dictate and instead use a manner of speaking taught by the Spirit, by which we explain things of the Spirit to people who have the Spirit.
14 Now the natural man does not receive the things from the Spirit of God – to him they are nonsense! Moreover, he is unable to grasp them, because they are evaluated through the Spirit.
15 But the person who has the Spirit can evaluate everything, while no one is in a position to evaluate him.
16 For who has known the mind of ADONAI? Who will counsel him? But we have the mind of the Messiah! (1Co 2:11-16 CJB)

Trust in Jesus. Give yourself completely to Him. Say it out loud. Invite Him into your heart, mind, soul, spirit, into all your being. Do it  before it is too late. Don’t say I’ll do it tomorrow and put it off for another day because the truth is that time is running out. The bible says today is the day of salvation. See the following verse: “Or, if you are loath to serve the LORD, choose this day which ones you are going to serve — the gods that your forefathers served beyond the Euphrates, or those of the Amorites in whose land you are settled; but I and my household will serve the LORD (Jos 24:15 TNK).” He wants to sit on the throne of your heart. He wants to rule and reign from your heart. He wants you to partake in His Kingdom. Jesus is the High King of His Kingdom. But He wants you to be royal priests in His Kingdom. Jesus wants to have a personal relationship with you. Come as you are. Yield yourself to the King of kings and Lord of lords. You will reign with Him in His Kingdom. See the verses below that correspond.

1 “Don’t let yourselves be disturbed. Trust in God and trust in me. (Joh 14:1 CJB)

15 “The time has come, God’s Kingdom is near! Turn to God from your sins and believe the Good News!” (Mar 1:15 CJB)

 9 that if you acknowledge publicly with your mouth that Yeshua is Lord and trust in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be delivered. (Rom 10:9 CJB)

 31 They said, “Trust in the Lord Yeshua, and you will be saved – you and your household!” (Act 16:31 CJB)

20 Here, I’m standing at the door, knocking. If someone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he will eat with me. (Rev 3:20 CJB)

 9 But you are a chosen people, the King’s cohanim, a holy nation, a people for God to possess! Why? In order for you to declare the praises of the One who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1Pe 2:9 CJB)

17 and if we are children, then we are also heirs, heirs of God and joint-heirs with the Messiah – provided we are suffering with him in order also to be glorified with him. (Rom 8:17 CJB)

18 then holy ones of the Most High will receive the kingdom, and will possess the kingdom forever — forever and ever.’ (Dan 7:18 TNK)

16 And on his robe and on his thigh he has a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. (Rev 19:16 CJB)
