Christ's Snowflakes: Part 2

In Christ's Snowflakes: Part 1, I showed how the standard, ordinal and reduced values of the name ‘Jesus Christ’ can be represented by three numerical snowflakes and that each snowflake, miraculously, has the same underlying platelet structure as the Creation snowflake. The most remarkable of these snowflakes has 925 units, 925 being the standard value of His name.

Because numerical values under the standard value system are relatively high, any numerical or geometric connections found between names are more meaningful than under the other two systems, since random connections are less likely. The standard value system is therefore the most significant of the three.

In this page I show how some of the most important names and titles we have conferred upon our Lord are also linked to numerical snowflakes through their standard values. Living up to its name, the Creation snowflake is the progenitor for all of these figures. Moreover, several of them can also be directly sculpted from snowflake 925, a fact so unlikely that the only reasonable explanation is that the Creator designed it that way.

Jesus Christ and Yehoshua

Within the Creation snowflake is a numerical snowflake formed from 925 units, this representing the standard value of the name ‘Jesus Christ’. This figure is shown below with its platelet structure.

Jesus Christ (s). = 925

The Hebrew word for Jesus, transliterated as Yehoshua, has a standard value of 391. Can a snowflake of 391 units be cut from the Creation snowflake? Yes it can!

Snowflake 391 is an aesthetically pleasing figure that can indeed be sculpted from the Creation snowflake. It is very simply constructed from a central plate, hexagon 169—which fits onto the basic platelet pattern of the Creation snowflake—and six hexagonal platelets of 37 units.


The name ‘Immanuel’ is mentioned three times in the Bible. The book of Isaiah contains a prophecy of the coming Redeemer, who, in Isaiah 7:14 and Isaiah 8:8, is named Immanuel (note 2). Matthew 1:23 identifies Jesus Christ as Immanuel. Remarkably, the three chapter and verse numbers minus colons sum to 925, the standard value of ‘Jesus Christ’!

From snowflake 925 (and hence from the Creation snowflake) an elegant star can be carved, with 475 units remaining.

Immanuel (s) = 475

This rendering also shows how snowflake 475 is equal in diameter to snowflake 925 and is formed solely from the six branches of hexagonal plates that radiate out from the centre of the larger snowflake. Given that the names ‘Jesus Christ’ and ‘Immanuel’ are synonymous, this is a truly remarkable fit! Here is snowflake 475 on its own, showing its delicate branches more clearly.

Immanuel (s) = 475

Here is an alternative form for this figure.

Further numerico-geometric connections between the two names are shown in the page In His Name.



In the Book of John Jesus is identified with the word, which is written as logos in Greek. In The Signature of Christ I show how the standard values of ‘Jesus’ and ‘Word’ are encoded within the NIV Bible’s first 24 words (24 itself being the reduced value of Ihsous). The English and Greek words are also associated with two beautiful figures that can be crystallised out of the Creation snowflake.

The next snowflake is perhaps the most beautiful of all, and represents the standard value of the Greek word logos.

This particularly stunning figure is the second generation of the Creation snowflake itself and the second iteration of the Koch snowflake.[1] Within it can be seen snowflake 151, the first generation figure, 151 being the ordinal value of ‘Jesus Christ’ and ‘Holy Spirit’. At the centre of the figure is hexagram 37, the seed for the Creation snowflake, 37 being the reduced value of ‘the Lord’ and ‘Spirit’.


The few snowflakes we discovered in part 1 of this page have now become a flurry, each figure symbolising Jesus Christ in a unique and visually stunning way, each a frozen testament to divine creativity, fashioned by the hand of God as surely as real snowflakes are made by the ‘fashioning hand’ of nature, as Thoreau observed.

There is little more to be said here, except to point out an amazing parallel between Christ’s snowflakes and the work of a well-known Japanese researcher. God’s creation of the universe of manifest forms is recorded in the Bible as spoken words, which, though they are simply vibrations through the air, have great power either for creation or destruction. This has been demonstrated in an unusual way by Masaru Emoto, who has found that the words spoken to water before it is frozen will greatly affect the forms of the ice crystals that eventually form. Loving words, such as ‘thankyou’ and ‘peace’, give symmetrical crystals very similar to snow crystals. Unloving words, such as ‘war’ and ‘’you’re stupid’, produce irregular crystals. Looking at some of the crystals Dr. Emoto has grown, I was delighted to see that some of the most beautiful water crystals are very similar in shape to Christ’s snowflakes. In particular the words ‘love for humanity’ give a crystal that is almost identical to snowflake 925, representing Jesus Christ—who loved humanity like no other.

Addendum: Heaven and Zion

Two further hexagonal crystals make a suitable late addition to this page (11/09). The standard values for the words ‘Zion’ (which for Christians is the future heavenly abode of the elect) and ‘heaven’ (God’s abode) are 919 and 469, respectively. These are hexagons that naturally fit into the platelet structure of the Creation Snowflake. The fact that they are the standard values for words closely related in meaning to each other and to the names of God which have already been linked to the Creation Snowflake therefore seems more than fortuitous. The two hexagons are shown below, superimposed upon the Creation Snowflake, so you can observe how the hexagons precisely map onto the snowflake’s platelet structure.

Zion (s) = 919
Heaven (s) = 469

This second hexagon is in fact the central figure in snowflake 925, representing the name ‘Jesus Christ’, and the central figure for several related snowflakes (see page 1 and above). Hexagon 469 could therefore be said to be the ‘parent’ hexagon for most of Christ’s snowflakes; thus in every way it reflects Christ’s heavenly origins!
