There are 22 letters in the Hebrew Alphabet. Each one has a specific meaning and a numerical number attached to it. I want to discuss the incredible 21st letter: שׁ SHIN. It is in the same form in Hebrew and in Aramaic/Syriac, a text used in both the Old and the New Testaments. Daniel 1 – 6 is an example of this and some of what Jesus says is in Aramaic. Daniel does not shift to Hebrew until chapter 7. We posted this in our Daniel studies and aha. Daniel 1-6 he is addressing the Greeks and in 7- 12 he is addressing the Hebrew Israelites.
שׁ literally means “teeth”, “press”, “sharp”, “change.” In gematria, Shin represents the number 300 [Wikipedia]. SHIN or שׁ also stands for the Hebrew name of God: Shaddai. Recall the song El-Shaddai? Because of this, a kohen (priest) forms the letter Shin with his hands as he recites the Priestly Blessing. In the mid-1960s, actor Leonard Nimoy used a single-handed version of this gesture to create the Vulcan hand salute for his character, Mr. Spock, on Star Trek. What did they know that we are just discovering? Nemoy’s parents were both Ukrainian Jews.
Now the question; is it purely coincidence or bible code through the Hebrew alphabet??? When we look at our reflection in a mirror we see a reverse image of ourselves. Right? Let’s draw this all together.
The three valleys that run around Jerusalem with one running through Jerusalem are: (1) Valley of Jehosephat also called the Kidron Valley runs east of Jerusalem, (2) Valley of Hinnon runs around the other side of Jerusalem; some identify it with the *Valley of Shaveh, and (3) the Valley of Tyropoeon which runs through the eastern side of Jerusalem. Jesus will return to the Mount of Olives which is also to the east of Jerusalem. When he does the Mount will divide north and south through a natural fault line Zechariah had no knowledge of when he wrote this passage in Zechariah 14:3-5.
*THE VALLEY OF SHAVEH is the first landmark mentioned from a map of ancient Jerusalem. However, this valley’s exact location remains a mystery, as does the identity of Melchizedek, the king of Salem at this time. This is where he met Abraham and Abraham gave 1/10 of his belongings to Mechizadek as a tithe-offering.
The Valley of Tyropoeon runs through Jerusalem at an angle mostly to one side of this city. Perhaps this picture [for visuals] will understand what I am saying.
#6 is the Valley of *Hinnon/GeHannon
#5 is the Valley of Tyropoeon
#4 is the Valley of Kidron/Jehosephat
*This is also known as the Valley of death of Gehenna or GeHinnom in Hebrew. Child sacrifice was practice here by Judah.
Here is what the originator of this map did not notice. Take the letter SHIN שׁ hold it to a mirror, and what do you see? ANS: The shape of the above map in a mirror image, the judgement of God; Shaddai/shin.
These valleys converge in a direct line with the springs of living waters from under the Throne as discussed in Ezekiel flowing to the Dead Sea. In the Millennial Reign, the Dead Sea will become a fresh water sea and fish will abound in it.The three valleys that comprise the city of Jerusalem’s geography: the Valley of Ben Hinnom, Tyropoeon Valley, and Kidron or Jehosephat Valley.
[Ezekiel 47:1-12; Revelation 22:1-2]
This is a scale model of Jerusalem today. I have drawn three blue lines indicating the three valleys discussed above. This is a mirror image of the letter SHIN:
To the right and a little bit south of the above scale model of Jerusalem, but not in this picture, is the Mount of Olives. This is where Christ returns (2nd Advent). When he sets foot on it, it will divide North and South [Zechariah 14:4] creating a huge valley in which the Battle of Armageddon will be fought. Fought gives a wrong impression. It will be one-sided. Shin/Shaddai will destroy the 2000,000,000 man army with his tongue and spoken word.
Re-read the 2nd paragraph in this article: שׁ literally means “teeth”, “press”, “sharp”, “change.” The very letter defines Jerusalem!
