¿CUAL ES EL MISTERIO DEL NUMERO 26? ¿PORQUE LA GEMATRIA DE YHWH ES EL MISMO NUMERO? ¿PORQUE EL CALENDARIO MAYA TIENE FUERTE NEXO CON ESE NUMERO?-LA CLAVE ESTARIA EN EL SEXTO DIA DE LA CREACION (SEXTO DIA ES VIERNES/VENUS) EN EL CONTEXTO A ESTE ULTIMO CON EL NUMERO 13 (SERIE DE FIBONACCI=NUMERO DE ORO), QUE ES EL NUMERO DEL AMOR-YHWH SIMBOLIZA A LA UNION ENTRE EL HOMBRE Y LA MUJER, AMBOS CREADOS EN EL SEXTO DIA DE LA CREACION-VEMOS OTRA RELACION ALQUIMICA, PERO EN OTRO CONTEXTO, CON REFERENCIA A VENUS.

 

Gematria of YHWH = 26 = 8

 
We saw in the Gematria of the Hebrew Alphabet that each Hebrew letter has a numerical equivalent. The process of adding the numeric values together for a Hebrew word or phrase is called Gematria.

Let's go through an example of Gematria to see how it works in practice. Let's work out the Gematria of YHWH, or Yahweh, the Memorial Name for the God of Israel. In Hebrew, Yahweh is written as:

 

YHWH/YHVH -- Tetragrammaton

 
YHWH
5 6 5 10
Gematria: 26
Full: 42


YHWH: 10.5.6.5, Existence-Life-Copulation-Life, expresses in existence the two lives (that of the container or shell or physical support, and that of the contained germ or inner life) that fertilze each other. This double impregnation can only occur in Man and as long as it does not occur YHWH is immanent but unborn.


The Hebrew letters of Yahweh are Yod, Heh, Vav and Heh. (Remember that Hebrew is read from right to left, the opposite of English). The Gematria of these Hebrew letters is as follows:

The Gematria of Yod is 10.
The Gematria of Heh is 5.
The Gematria of Vav is 6.
The Gematria of Heh is 5.

Therefore, the Gematria of YHWH is 10 + 5 + 6 + 5 = 26.

A common extension of the above system of Gematria is to add the digits of the resultant number together. In the above case, for 26, we would add 2 plus 6. The result is 8.

Eight is an interesting number in the Holy Scriptures. It is associated with the eternity, with the time after resurrection, and of eternal salvation. Eight people were saved from the flood in the days of Noah. Therefore, 8 is a very important Gematria for Yahweh. Yahweh is the living and eternal God, the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the ending. Eight points forward to the Kingdom Age, when the Messiah will establish YHWH's Kingdom, and Jerusalem will be the future capital of the world, and the Law will go forth from Zion.
 
LO CURIOSO ES QUE TAMBIEN EN INGLES LA SUMA DE GOD NOS DA 26
 
GOD
G=7
O=15
D=4
7 MAS 15 MAS 4 ES IGUAL A 26
MATEO 10:26
10:26 Así que, no los temáis; porque nada hay encubierto, que no haya de ser manifestado; ni oculto, que no haya de saberse.
GALATAS 4:26
4:26 Mas la Jerusalén de arriba, la cual es madre de todos nosotros, es libre.
GENESIS 1:26,27
1:26 Entonces dijo Dios: Hagamos al hombre a nuestra imagen, conforme a nuestra semejanza; y señoree en los peces del mar, en las aves de los cielos, en las bestias, en toda la tierra, y en todo animal que se arrastra sobre la tierra. 
1:27 Y creó Dios al hombre a su imagen, a imagen de Dios lo creó; varón y hembra los creó. (En funcion a GENESIS 5:2, la mujer tambien fue llamada ADAN, osea que en el momento de la creacion ADAN ERA ANDROGENO, osea que estaban en un mismo cuerpo. Esto desgraciadamente lo ELUDE LA INTERPRETACION TRADICIONAL.)
PRIMER DIA=DOMINGO=SUNDAY=DIA DEL SOL
SEGUNDO DIA=LUNES=MONDAY=DIA DE LA LUNA
TERCER DIA=MARTES=PLANETA MARTE
CUARTO DIA=MIERCOLES=MERCURIO
QUINTO DIA=JUEVES=JUPITER
SEXTO DIA=VIERNES=VENUS
13 CICLOS DE VENUS EQUIVALEN A 8 CICLOS TERRESTRES. DICHO PLANETA ESTA DISEÑADO EN FUNCION AL NUMERO 13.

Venus and Earth reveal a golden ratio phi relationship

Venus and the Earth are linked in an unusual relationship involving phi.  Start by letting Mercury represent the basic unit of orbital distance and period in the solar system:

Planet Distance
from
the sun
in km (000)
Distance
where
Mercury
equals 1
Period
where
Mercury
equals 1
Mercury 57,910 1.0000 1.0000
Venus 108,200 1.8684 2.5490
Earth 149,600 2.5833 4.1521

 

Curiously enough we find:

Ö Period of Venus * Phi = Distance of the Earth

Ö 2.5490 * 1.6180339 = 1.5966 * 1.6180339 = 2.5833

In addition, Venus orbits the Sun in 224.695 days while Earth orbits the Sun in 365.242 days, creating a ratio of 8/13 (both Fibonacci numbers) or 0.615 (roughly phi.)  Thus 5 conjunctions of Earth and Venus occur every 8 orbits of the Earth around the Sun and every 13 orbits of Venus.

Mercury, on the other hand, orbits the Sun in 87.968 Earth days, creating a conjunction with the Earth every 115.88 days.  Thus there are 365.24/115.88 conjunctions in a year, or 22 conjunctions in 7 years, which is very close to Pi!

LA V CORTA QUE CONTIENE LA LETRA M EN EL CENTRO EQUIVALE A LA V CORTA DE VENUS/VIRGEN

MAGDALENA SIGNIFICA TORRE
TORRES DEL PARQUE CENTRAL CARACAS
P-ARQUE/ P-ARK/ ARCO/ARCA / M-ARCO-S / ARQUE (GRIEGO)=PRINCIPIO / ARCA DE LA ALIANZA / ARCA PERDIDA / SANTO GRIAL
Las TORRES GEMELAS DE CARACAS, con sus 225 metros (METRO=MADRE EN GRIEGO/ROSE LINE/ LINEA ROSA/, son una referencia a Venus, al igual que las TORRES GEMELAS DE NUEVA YORK, en el contexto a su destruccion en el 225 aniversario de la independencia de EEUU. Dichas torres simbolizan, insisto, en el contexto al sexto dia de la creacion al hombre/sol/ Jacob/Adan/Jesucristo y a la mujer/luna/Raquel/Eva/Maria Magdalena. DICHO PATRON ESTA CODIFICADO, INSISTO, EN LA LETRA M. Venus, esta diseñado en funcion a la estrella de 5 puntas, osea la alquimia que es el SANTO GRIAL.
 En si, las mismas torres gemelas, eran en el contexto al TEMPLO DE SALOMON (SOL-O-MON), LAS DOS COLUMNAS DE JACHIN Y BOAZ (1 DE REYES 7:22), que insisto son una referencia al SEXTO DIA DE LA CREACION.
En la misma BANDERA DE ESPAÑA, incluso, tambien las tenemos en las DOS COLUMNAS DE HERCULES (ATLANTIDA), bajo dicho patron, incluso es el ICONO DEL SIGNO $, QUE ES EL CODIGO MADRE DEL 911. Esto explica el 11/3/2004, la bomba de España en el contexto al 911. LA REFERENCIA DE LAS DOS COLUMNAS DE HERCULES EN LA BANDERA ESPAÑOLA SON UNA REFERENCIA A LA TRANSFIGURACION DE CRISTO (HIJOS DEL TRUENO O DE MARIA DE SALOME QUE ERAN SANTIAGO Y JUAN EL EVANGELISTA), en el contexto al CAMINO DE SANTIAGO, en el contexto a la CONSTELACION DEL CISNE /SIGNUS TAMBIEN EN CONTEXTO A LEON (JUAN MARCOS). TODOS LOS CODIGOS NOS LLEVAN AL LINAJE DE CRISTO VIA JUAN MARCOS. Es increible que YHWH, no discrimina, como si lo hace el hombre. PARA DIOS NO EXISTE DERECHA, ISQUIERDA, NAZISMO, COMUNISMO, CATOLICISMO, ADVENTISMO, JEHOVISMO, JUDAISMO, ETC. SUS CODIGOS ESTAN CUALQUIERA SEA LA IDEOLOGIA. A NIVEL MUNDIAL ESTA EL
MARKETING
DIVINO. LA LETRA M, INCLUSO, TAMBIEN ES UNA REFERENCIA A CASIOPEIA (REINA DE ETIOPIA/ IGLESIA COPTA / MARIA Y JUAN MARCOS) CUYO AÑO NUEVO EN EL CALENDARIO COPTO, ES EL MISMO 11 DE SEPTIEMBRE. ¿AHORA, si YHWH NO DISCRIMINA A NADIE, pues el quiere que TODO EL MUNDO ENTIENDA EL SANTO GRIAL Y QUIEN CORNO SOY YO PARA DISCRIMINAR A ALGUIEN PORQUE PIENSE DISTINTO? Amigo, buscador de la verdad, NO OLVIDE ESTA EXPRESION. DETRAS DE TODA PERSONA QUE DEMONIZA A ALGUIEN HAY UN MANIPULADOR Y UN LAVADOR DE CEREBRO. En este mundo nadie es DUEÑO DE LA VERDAD EN FORMA ABSOLUTA Y NADIE ES 100% bueno y nadie es 100% malo. DETRAS DE UN EGOLATRA HAY UN PARANOICO. LA PARANOIA ES UNA ENFERMEDAD DEL ALTER EGO (Persona que SOBREVALUA Su autoestima). LO UNICO QUE BUSCA UNA PERSONA (QUE DEMONIZA A OTRO CUALQUIERA SEA SU IDEOLOGIA Y CUALQUIERA SEA EL ..ISMO QUE EL PREDIQUE) ESTA EL PODER, OSEA EL $$$$.

 
EN LA MISMA PINTURA DE DA VINCI, HAY UNA REFERENCIA A CASIOPEIA, QUE ESTA EN EL MISMO MERIDIANO DE PISCIS, OSEA QUE TIENE UN FUERTE NEXO CON LA SEÑAL DE JONAS (MATEO 12:40,42) Y CON LA REINA DE ETIOPIA, QUE JUSTAMENTE TIENE UN FUERTE NEXO CON JUAN MARCOS Y LA IGLESIA COPTA. EL NEXO CASIOPEIA CON LA SANTA CENA, ES UN OBVIO NEXO PISCIS, SEÑAL DE JONAS, RIO NILO, PARALELO 19.47 Y MERIDIANO 33 OESTE, ETC,ETC
La clave de la "señal de Jonas", en Mateo 12:40, en el contexto a la REINA DE SABA QUE ERA DE ETIOPIA, justo adonde esta la curva del Nilo a 33 Oeste y 19.47 Norte, es justamente JUAN MARCOS QUE PREDICO EN ETIOPIA Y JUSTAMENTE ES EL PADRE DE LA IGLESIA COPTA. LA NUEVA "ARCA PERDIDA ESPIRITUAL" ES JUAN MARCOS. Recordemos que el antigua ARCA PERDIDA fue escondida por Jeremias. Esto explica de la fuerte relacion del ARCA DEL CONVENIO, con la estrella SIRIO. LA RELACION 911, CON EL AÑO NUEVO COPTO, ESCONDE ESE MENSAJE en el contexto insisto a que en dicho calendario el 11 de Septiembre es el primer dia del año.
MATEO 12
33. O haced el árbol bueno, y su fruto bueno, o haced el árbol malo, y su fruto malo; porque por el fruto se conoce el árbol. (Nuestro Señor hace referencia primero a el mismo, pero esotericamente tambien esta haciendo referencia al GRIAL. EL ARBOL, nexo con el TERCER DIA DE LA CREACION, simboliza a la madre y el fruto al hijo. LA RESURRECCION DE NUESTRO SEÑOR SIMBOLIZA A LA RESURRECCION DEL AVE PHOENIX, OSEA EL GRIAL. ¿PORQUE CREE USTED QUE CRISTO SE LE APARECIO POR PRIMERA VEZ A MAGDALENA LUEGO DE SU RESURRECCION? GLORIA A YHWH TODOPODEROSO QUE SU PALABRA ESTA CODIFICADA EN TODO.)
34. ¡Generación de víboras! ¿Cómo podéis hablar lo bueno, siendo malos? Porque de la abundancia del corazón habla la boca. (Nuestro SEÑOR IRONIZA LLAMANDOLES A LOS FARISEOS "GENERACION DE VIBORAS O GENERACION DE LA SERPIENTE". EN SUS CARAS LE ESTA DANDO EL CODIGO, PERO $$$$ ES LO QUE LOS PONE CIEGOS. LA SERPIENTE ES UN NEXO CON DAN, GENESIS 49, QUE RELACIONA ESOTERICAMENTE CON ADAN. EL CODIGO DEL GRIAL ESTA EN EL MISMO SIMBOLO DEL DOLAR.)
35. El hombre bueno, del buen tesoro del corazón saca buenas cosas; y el hombre malo, del mal tesoro saca malas cosas.
36. Mas yo os digo que de toda palabra ociosa que hablen los hombres, de ella darán cuenta en el día del juicio. (El 911, en el contexto al verdadero calendario LUNI-SOLAR HEBREO FUE EN EL DIA DEL JUICIO, OSEA EN EL DIA DE LA EXPIACION, EL 9/10 DE TISRI O DEL SEPTIMO MES)
37. Porque por tus palabras serás justificado, y por tus palabras serás condenado.
38. Entonces respondieron algunos de los escribas y de los fariseos, diciendo: Maestro, deseamos ver de ti señal.
39. El respondió y les dijo: La generación mala y adúltera demanda señal; pero señal no le será dada, sino la señal del profeta Jonás.
40. Porque como estuvo Jonás en el vientre del gran pez tres días y tres noches, así estará el Hijo del Hombre en el corazón de la tierra tres días y tres noches. (33 ES EL NUMERO DEL GRIAL)
41. Los hombres de Nínive se levantarán en el juicio con esta generación, y la condenarán; porque ellos se arrepintieron a la predicación de Jonás, y he aquí más que Jonás en este lugar.
42. La reina del Sur se levantaráen el juicio con esta generación, y la condenará; porque ella vino de los fines de la tierra para oír la sabiduría de Salomón, y he aquí más que Salomón en este lugar. (Aqui esta la clave. JUAN MARCOS ES EL PADRE, INSISTO, DE LA IGLESIA COPTA, ubicada principalmente en ETIOPIA. MARIA LA MAGDALENA/JUAN MARCOS ES LA NUEVA ARCA PERDIDA. SABIDURIA/SOPHIA/NUMERO DE ORO PHI/ORO REFINADO/SANTO GRIAL.)

St Mark was of Jewish extraction. The style of his gospel abounding with Hebrewisms shows that he was by birth a Jew, and that the Hebrew language was more natural to him than the Greek. His acts say he was of Cyrenaica, and Bede from them adds, of the race of Aaron. Papias, quoted by Eusebius, St. Austin, Theodoret, and Bede say he was converted by the apostles after Christ's resurrection. St. Irenaeus calls him the disciple and interpreter of St. Peter, and, according to Origen and St. Jerome, he is the same Mark whom St. Peter calls his son. By his office of interpreter to St. Peter, some understood that St. Mark was the author of the style of his epistles; others, that he was employed as a translator into Greek or Latin of what the apostle had written in his own tongue, as occasion might require it. St. Jerome and some others take him to be the same with that John, surnamed Mark, son to the sister of St. Barnabas; but it is generally believed they were different persons, and that the latter was with St. Paul in the East at the same time that the Evangelist was at Rome or at Alexandria. According to Papias, and St. Clement of Alexandria, he wrote his gospel at the request of the Romans; who, as they relate, desired to have that committed to writing which St. Peter had taught them by word of mouth. Mark, to whom this request was made, did accordingly set himself to recollect what he had by long conversation learned from St. Peter; for it is affirmed by some that he had never seen our Saviour in the flesh. St. Peter rejoiced at the affection of the faithful; and having revised the work, approved of it, and authorized it to be read in the religious assemblies of the faithful. Hence it might be that, as we learn from Tertullian,6 some attributed this gospel to St. Peter himself. Many judge, by comparing the two gospels, that St. Mark abridged that of St. Matthew; for he relates the same things, and often uses the same words; but he adds several particular circumstances and changes the order of the narration, in which he agrees with St. Luke and St. John. He relates two histories not mentioned by St. Matthew, namely, that of the widow giving two mites, and that of Christ's appearing to the two disciples going to Emmaus. St. Austin calls him the Abridger of St. Matthew. But Ceillier and some others think nothing clearly proves that he made use of St. Matthew's gospel. This evangelist is concise in his narrations, and writes with a most pleasing simplicity and elegance. St. Chrysostom9 admires the humility of St. Peter (we may add also of his disciple St. Mark) when he observes that his evangelist makes no mention of the high commendations which Christ gave that apostle on his making that explicit confession of his being the Son of God; neither does he mention his walking on the water; but gives at full length the history of St. Peter's denying his Master, with all its circumstances. He wrote his gospel in Italy, and in all appearance before the year of Christ 49.

St. Peter sent his disciples from Rome to found other churches. Some moderns say St. Mark founded that of Aquileia. It is certain, at least, that he was sent by St. Peter into Egypt, and was by him appointed Bishop of Alexandria (which, after Rome, was accounted the second city of the world), as Eusebius, St. Epiphanius, St. Jerome, and others assure us. Pope Gelasius, in his Roman Council, Palladius, and the Greeks universally add that he finished his course at Alexandria by a glorious martyrdom. St. Peter left Rome and returned into the East in the ninth year of Claudius and forty-ninth of Christ. About that time St. Mark went first into Egypt, according to the Greeks. The Oriental Chronicle, published by Abraham Eckellensis, places his arrival at Alexandria only in the seventh year of Nero and sixtieth of Christ. Both which accounts agree with the relation of his martyrdom, contained in the ancient acts published by the Bollandists, which were made use of by Bede and the Oriental Chronicle, and seem to have been extant in Egypt in the fourth and fifth centuries. By them we are told that St. Mark landed at Cyrene, in Pentapolis, a part of Lybia bordering on Egypt, and by innumerable miracles brought many over to the faith, and demolished several temples of the idols. He likewise carried the gospel into other provinces of Lybia, into Thebais, and other parts of Egypt. This country was heretofore of all others the most superstitious; but the benediction of God, promised to it by the prophets, was plentifully showered down upon it during the ministry of this apostle. He employed twelve years in preaching in these parts before he, by a particular call of God, entered Alexandria, where he soon assembled a very numerous church, of which it is thought, says Fleury, that the Jewish converts then made up the greatest part. And it is the opinion of St. Jerome and Eusebius that these were the Therapeutes described by Philo, and the first founders of the ascetic life in Egypt.

The prodigious progress of the faith in Alexandria stirred up the heathens against this Galilaean. The apostle therefore left the city, having ordained St. Anianus bishop, in the eighth year of Nero, of Christ the sixty-second, and returned to Pentapolis where he preached two years, and then visited his church of Alexandria, which he found increased in faith and grace as well as in numbers. He encouraged the faithful and again withdrew; the Oriental Chronicle says to Rome. On his return to Alexandria, the heathens called him a magician on account of his miracles, and resolved upon his death. God, however, concealed him long from them. At last, on the pagan feast of the idol Serapis, some that were employed to discover the holy man found him offering to God the prayer of the oblation, or the mass. Overjoyed to find him in their power, they seized him, tied his feet with cords and dragged him about the streets, crying out that the ox must be led to Bucoles, a place near the sea, full of rocks and precipices, where probably oxen were fed. This happened on Sunday, the 24th of April, in the year of Christ 68, of Nero the fourteenth, about three years after the death of SS. Peter and Paul. The saint was thus dragged the whole day, staining the stones with his blood and leaving the ground strewed with pieces of his flesh; all the while he ceased not to praise and thank God for his sufferings. At night he was thrown into prison, in which God comforted him by two visions, which Bede has also mentioned in his true Martyrology. The next day the infidels dragged him, as before, till he happily expired on the 25th of April, on which day the Oriental and Western churches keep his festival. The Christians gathered up the remains of his mangled body and buried them at Bucoles, where they afterwards usually assembled for prayer. His body was honourably kept there, in a church built on the spot, in 310; and towards the end of the fourth age the holy priest Philoromus made a pilgrimage thither from Galatia to visit this saint's tomb, as Palladius recounts. His body was still honoured at Alexandria, under the Mahometans, in the eighth age, in a marble tomb. It is said to have been conveyed by stealth to Venice in 815 Bernard, a French monk, who travelled over the East in 870, writes that the body of St. Mark was not then at Alexandria, because the Venetians had carried it to their isles. It is said to be deposited in the Doge's stately rich chapel of St. Mark in a secret place, that it may not be stolen, under one of the great pillars. This saint is honoured by that republic with extraordinary devotion as principal patron.

The great litany is sung on this day to beg that God would be pleased to avert from us the scourges which our sins deserve. The origin of this custom is usually ascribed to St. Gregory the Great, who, by a public supplication or litany, with a procession of the whole city of Rome, divided into seven bands or companies, obtained of God the extinction of a dreadful pestilence This St. Gregory of Tours learned from a deacon, who had assisted at this ceremony at Rome. The station was at St. Mary Major's, and this pro cession and litany were made in the year 590. St. Gregory the Great speaks of a like procession and litany which he made thirteen years after on the 29th of August, in the year 603, in which the station was at St. Sabina's. Whence it is inferred that St. Gregory performed this ceremony every year, though not on the 25th of April, on which day we find it settled, in the close of the seventh century, long before the same was appointed for the feast of St. Mark. The great litany was received in France, and commanded in the council of Aix-la-Chapelle in 836, and in the Capitulars of Charles the Bald. St. Gregory the Great observed the great litany with a strict fast. On account of the Paschal time, on the 25th of April, it is kept in several dioceses only with abstinence; in some with a fast of the Stations, or till None.

Nothing is more tender and more moving than the instructions which several councils, fathers, and holy pastors have given on the manner of performing public supplications and processions. The first council of Orleans orders masters to excuse their servants from work and attendance, that all the faithful may be assembled together to unite their prayers and sighs. A council of Mentz commanded that all should assist barefoot and covered with sackcloth; which was for some time observed in that church. St. Charles Borromaeo endeavoured, by pathetic instructions and pastoral letters, to revive the ancient piety of the faithful on the great litany and the rogation days. According to the regulations which he made, the supplications and processions began before break of day and continued till three or four o'clock in the afternoon. On them he fasted himself on bread and water and preached several times, exhorting the people to sincere penance. A neglect to assist at the public supplications of the church is a grievous disorder and perhaps one of the principal causes of the little piety and sanctity which are left, and of the scandals which reign amongst Christians. They cannot seek the kingdom of God as they ought, who deprive themselves of so powerful a means of drawing down his graces upon their souls. We must join this procession with hearts penetrated with humility, and spend some time in prayer, pious reading, and the exercises of compunction. What we are chiefly to ask of God on these days is the remission of our sins, which are the only true evil and the cause of all the chastisements which we suffer or have reason to fear. We must, secondly, beg that God avert from us all scourges and calamities which our crimes deserve, and that he bestow his blessing on the fruits of the earth.
