The Divine Serpent


Aarons Staff Snake



 Hebrew gematria has a curious dual identity for the number 363, which means 'The Messiah' but also 'The Serpent'.

Ha Mashiach/The Messiah (s)  = 363
Ha Nachesh/The Serpent (s) = 363

In the last few pages we have been simultaneously travelling towards the Cross and into the Tabernacle, aided on our journey by the Hebrew letters vav (6), zayin (7) and chet (8). The next Hebrew letter is tet and it has a dual meaning that reflects the duality we see in the number 363.


The Duality of Tet

Like its predecessor chet, the letter tet is composed of a vav and a zayin. In chet the vav is 'yoked' to the zayin, a picture of the Messiah and his disciples. However, in tet the vav and zayin are connected at their base and the vav is curled. Together with its tagin (crownlets) we now have a picture either of the crowned man (Messiah) with his disciples in submission to him, or a serpent with a rearing head, forked tongue and curving tail.

Tet as Messiah and as Serpent

 Tet copy

Tet has a numerical value of nine, which the Bible links to endings, finality and judgment. It shows the final choice men have to make in life. Do we submit to Christ's authority or do we, like Satan, reject it? Under God's authority the serpent nature can be used for good, an instrument of His Law. This is clearly shown in Exodus 7.8-12, where Moses and Aaron defeat the Pharaoh's magicians by following the Lord's instructions:

8The Lord said to Moses and Aaron                                 
9 “When Pharaoh says to you, ‘Perform a miracle,’ then say to Aaron, ‘Take your staff and throw it down before Pharaoh,’ and it will become a snake.”                                                                                                                            
10 So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and did just as the Lord commanded. Aaron threw his staff down in front of Pharaoh and his officials, and it became a snake.
11 Pharaoh then summoned wise men and sorcerers, and the Egyptian magicians also did the same things by their secret arts:
12 Each one threw down his staff and it became a snake. But Aaron’s staff swallowed up their staffs. 


Aaron's casting down of the staff, which was the symbol of Moses' authority, was the throwing away of worldly authority to become an instrument of God's will. The staff then became a snake showing God's power and ultimate authority. This story is also encoded with the number eleven and is prophetic of the event intimately bound with the New Bible Code: 9/11, when God's serpent again struck those of the magicians.


Good and Evil

The duality of tet is best illustrated in the story of Saul's jealousy of David. Significantly for the Hebrew alephbet's 9th letter, the story is told in 1 Samuel, the Bible's 9th book. Two consecutive verses tell us firstly that David was filled with the spirit of the Lord and secondly that Saul was filled with an evil spirit (again though from the Lord) to become David's enemy. These are 1 Samuel 16.13 -14.

13 So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers,  and from that day on
the Spirit of the Lord came upon David in power. Samuel then went to Ramah.
14. Now the Spirit of the Lord had departed from Saul, and an evil spirit from the Lord had tormented him.


These verses hide a little pearl of a code, which links the choice with which tet's dual nature presents us to God's plan for man's sanctification through Christ, already presented in Jesus' Stripes. They are presented in a slightly different way here, revealed by gematria. Here, as usual, are the ordinal values of the two verses.

1 Sam 16.13 (o)   = 1654
1 Sam 16.14 (o) = 921

Neither of these numbers are of interest here, but they combine to send a clear message for this present age (because it is revealed by English gematria in a modern version):

1. 1654 + 921 = 2575 = 515 x 5

Jesus (s) ..........= 515

The number 5 itself stands for God's grace and favour.

2. 1654 - 921 = 733

The Serpent (s) = 733

So David and Saul together (symbolised by addition) manifested the spirit of the Lord and defeated their enemies in battle. But Saul's jealousy separated them (subtraction) and the spirit of Satan was manifested. Thereafter, Saul persecuted David. This also resonates with a later Saul's persecution of Christians until his conversion and name change to Paul (which means 'little', ie humble).

This dual identification with tet has a geometric dimension that is encoded into these verses, linking them to the message of transgression and sanctification I delivered in The Holographic Seal. 1 Samuel 16.13 and 16.14 are this book's 396th and 397th verses. In numerical geometry, these numbers are a crown and a hexagon and when they are put together in unity they form a Star of David and another symbol of the code's principal message:

Hexagram 793 397

The cause of Saul's jealousy of David was a song sung by the women after their victories in battle, given in 1 Sam 18.7

"Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands."

The thousands killed refer here to 1000, which is a cube in 3D. The tens of thousands refer to 10,000, the tesseract of ten. In the previous few pages I present evidence that the Kingdom of God is literally five-dimensional, having four spatial directions like a tesseract (the analogue of a cube in four dimensions). An extra dimension points to heaven then, and so the story is telling us that even though the cube is a symbol of perfection and holiness, Saul was ultimately worldly, represented by the three dimensiona of the cube, and David - from whose line came Jesus - was set aside for God, this being represented by the extra dimension in a tesseract.


Transgression and Sanctification

Star 793 is the first iteration of a Koch snowflake starting with triangle 595, and the number 595 is the positional value of the Bible's central chapter and the gematria of these two phrases, conveying essentially the same higher meanings as tet.

parabasis/transgression (s)   = 595
ho hagiasmo/the Sanctification (s) = 595 

Allowing the Koch process to run its course for both snowflake and its opposite antisnowflake, gives us this diagram which shows how man the transgressor can be sanctified through obedience to Christ and reading His Word. 

 The Sanctification


The Tesseract of Tet

In the previous page i showed how the tesseracts of 7 an 8 are encoded within the New Garden of Eden, emphasising the higher-dimensional nature of heaven and how the story of Jesus' crucifixion reaches back to the creation of the universe. This is alluded to in Rev 13.8 as "the lamb slain from the creation of the world." and illustrated by the unfolding of a tesseract into a 3D cross that projects the familiar Christian cross.

The tesseract itself is modelled by the Most Holy Place . . . . 

Tesseract and Most Holy Place


. . . . and the Ark of the Testimony, which has a hidden dimension, is a model of a tesseractoid:

Ark, Tesseractoid Dimensions

The encoding of the tesseracts of 7 and 8 in the New Garden of Eden, putting the Divine seal of authority on this numerical journey to the Ark and the Cross, is completed by the encoding of the tesseract of nine in the same place,.

 The New Garden 6561

We now have three tesseracts in the New Garden - the three-part seal formed from Genesis 1.1 (MT), John 1.1 (TR) and Genesis 1.1-5 (NIV) - and they symbolise Christ as the following:

1. Zayin, the crowned King and Messiah, which was symbolised by Jesus's crowning before his crucifixion.

2. Chet, the doorway to Life, which Jesus became after his resurrection.

3. Tet, the Divine serpent, which Jesus utilised on 9/11, a staged drama representing the Day of Atonement, the Crucifixion and announcing Jesus' Second Coming

The identification with the Second Coming and the duality on display are undergirded by the identity I showed at the top of the page:

Ha Mashiach/The Messiah (s) = 363
Ha Nachesh/The Serpent (s) = 363
363 = 121 x 3 
363 = 11 x 11 x 3
Second Coming (o)  = 121
Antichrist (o) = 121
Jesus (r) = 11
Beast (r) = 11

So these numbers symbolise Jesus the Messiah and his Second Coming, and simultaneously the serpent, the beast and the antichrist. The power that destroyed the World Trade Centre and wounded the Pentagon was of the serpent - but under the Lord's control. [1]

The three tesseracts are nestled together within the New Garden as shown below.

The New Garden 6561 4096 2401 

Note: The odds against all three tesseracts being found in such a short string of words are somewhere in the region of 1000 to 1 (p = 0.001). Note that the two smaller tesseracts are found within the larger one and overlap at the words ''kai Theos/and God", all of which further reduces the chances of these being random hits. [2]

The significance of the numbere 7, 8 and 9 for understanding both Biblical and modern events is also suggested by these identities involving Jesus Christ and the Word, by whom these self-reflective encodings were made possible.

Our Lord (c)  = 777
Our Risen Lord (s) = 888
Ihsous (s) = 888
The Word (c) = 999

Note Jesus' progression from Lord (zayin) to Risen Lord after death (chet) and God's Word (tet), the Divine Serpent.


Bill Downie 9/11/22 



1. On the morning of 9/11 I awakened to hear a male voice say "Serpent Power". This was several hours before the attacks (I live in the UK) and was one of many signs I received that 9/11 had a significance far beyond other events. 

2. This was calculated using the binomial formula, but the calculation ignored some complicating factors and should be regarded as merely indicative.
