Why We Believe Less Obvious Words and
Phrases In Isaiah 53 ELSs Are Relevant


Some words and phrases above are undeniably related to Christ. The connection of others is less obvious. What follows is a discussion of the latter. All quotations are from the New International Version. (We are working to update this page and hope to have new information posted soon.)


Gushing from above, My Mighty Name
Arose upon Jesus, and the clouds rejoiced.


This 22-letter long ELS reads like poetry taken from the Psalms. It can naturally be translated as we have shown it above, or as, "Gushing from above, Yeshua was my mighty name, and the clouds rejoiced." Obviously, the former translation is more acceptable from a Jewish perspective, whereas the latter is more acceptable from a Christian viewpoint. Either way, the entire ELS is grammatically acceptable Biblical Hebrew (as contrasted with contemporary Hebrew).

The prophets spoke of God often as "the fountain of living waters." Jesus linked Himself to this aspect of God when He told the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well, "If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water . . . whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst again." (John 4:10,13)

In John 7:38, Jesus is quoted as saying, "Whoever believes in me, as the Scripture has said, streams of living water will flow from within him." By this he meant the Holy Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive."

In Ezekiel 43:1-2, the prophet tells of his encounter with someone he describes as "the glory of the God of Israel." Ezekiel states that the sound of this person's voice was "like the roar of rushing waters." John had a similar vision of "someone like a son of man" that he described in Revelation 1:14-15: "His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters." The context makes it clear that this person was Jesus.

The word for "gushing" (Sheen-koof-koof, or sh-KAHK) is translated as "to run about, bustle, be lively" or "to be hungry or thirsty." It becomes gushing when used to refer to the action of water, in which case it is also translated as "rushing" and "overflowing."

Clouds have long been a symbol of the presence of God (c.f., Psalm 18:9-12, 68:4; 104:3 and 148:8). In Exodus 13:21-22, the Lord guided the children of Israel by a pillar of cloud in the day.

In Daniel 7:13-14, the prophet tells of a vision of a messianic figure: "In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. He was given authority, glory and sovereign power; all peoples, nations and men of every language worshiped him. His dominion is an everlasting dominion that will not pass away, and his kingdom is one that will never be destroyed."

Luke 21:27 echoes this imagery: "At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."


Her Struggle is for Them; God Has
Graced Them; Lord of Hosts


This term seems vague and subject to a wide variety of interpretations. Who is “her”? Could it be the church, which is referred to as the bride of Christ? And who is “them”? Could this be about non-believers? If “her” is the church and “them” is non-believers, the term would begin to come into focus. The struggle of the church has always been to work with the Holy Spirit to bring more of those who are without Christ into a relationship with Him. God has certainly “graced them.” As the New Testament says, “In (Jesus Christ) we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that He lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding.” (Ephesians 1:7). The final phrase of the term, appearing almost as a signature, is the Hebrew name of God whose English equivalent is Lord of Hosts, or Jehovah-Sabaoth. Not Lord of the Sabbath, but the Lord who is there when there is no other recourse.


And Thirst for All of Him
Was the Faith of Mary the Mother


The poetry and the continuity of the water symbolism is seen again in this newly discovered, 18-letter code. It actually begins its backward journey into the cluster in Jeremiah 2, where the prophet repeats God's lament about the unfaithfulness of Israel. Its first two letters bracket a passage where God describes Himself as "the spring of living water" in the 13th verse. The first letter of the ELS is in a familiar passage on idolatry, Jeremiah 2:27: "They say to wood, 'You are my father,' and to stone, 'You gave me birth.' They have turned their backs to me and not their faces; yet when they are in trouble, they say, 'Come and save us.'" Its second letter touches down in verse 6, whose message powerfully suggests thirst: "They did not ask, 'Where is the Lord, who brought us up out of Egypt and led us through the barren wilderness, through a land of deserts and rifts, a land of drought and darkness, a land where no one travels and no one lives?'"


God’s Miracle to Us is Appropriate
to Them in the Temple


“God’s Miracle” seems to refer to Jesus Christ in its many appearances in Bible codes. “Who Will It Be that God’s Miracle Will Save?” for example, also appears in this cluster. The Genesis-Exodus cluster includes the ELSs “God's Miracle Has the Savor of a Lamb” and “God's Miracle is Alive as well as Plentiful.” Perhaps the best-known scripture in the Bible, John 3:16, supports the phrase “God’s Miracle to Us” (“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”) And clearly, this ELS is saying that Jesus Christ was given for Jews as well as Gentiles.


Shed Light on Ark of the Covenant
and Fade Away


The ark of the covenant was located in the most profound area of the tabernacle, and later temple – the holy of holies. It was a small box of acacia wood overlaid with gold, and contained the original tablets that Moses brought down from the mountain, as well as a jar of manna and Aaron’s rod that miraculously budded. Guarded by two winged angels, its top was the mercy seat, God’s throne. While the ark spoke of judgment and wrath, the mercy seat intervened. Once a year the high priest would sprinkle it with the blood of a goat to atone for the sins of the people of Israel. Christians believe that Jesus took the place of the ark of the covenant under a new covenant based on the atoning of His death and resurrection. At the moment he died on the cross, the 18-inch thick woven curtain protecting the holy of holies was torn from top to bottom, representing free access to God for anyone. Perhaps this code is urging us to examine the lessons of the ark, but fade away, or don’t continue to spotlight or dwell on the ark. There is also the possibility that the code may refer to the role of John the Baptist, the one who preceded and exalted Jesus Christ, and who said, “He must become greater, I must become less.” (John 3:30).


Who Will It Be that
God’s Miracle Will Save?


Here is one of the many question codes that have been popping up in our research. In some cases we have found answers to these questions in other ELSs that cross the questions at critical points. But in most cases we are still watching for the answers to reveal themselves, and this is one of them. It is a question that could have many valid answers, so it will be interesting to see what it will turn out to be. One of the verses that the ELS passes through may be instructive. Isaiah 25: 9 reads, “In that day (of salvation of the nation of Israel) they shall say, ‘Surely this is our God; we trusted in Him, and He saved us. This is the Lord, we trusted in Him; let us rejoice and be glad in His salvation.’”


Jesus as the Creator

Codes such as "Jesus Created to the Father" and "It Will Be Understood. Jesus Created" beg the question, "Did Christ have a role in the creation?" Several passages in the New Testament refer to His participation in it. Probably the most notable is John 1:1-4: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through Him all things were made; without Him was made that has been made. In him was life; and that life was the light of men."

This theme is continued in the epistles to the Colossians: "For by (Jesus) all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether throne or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by Him and for him. He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together." (Colossians 1:16)


Jesus the Gift

Codes that speak of the gift, such as "Jesus the Gift is Master and My Lord," are echoed in the words of John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life."


King of Light

In John 8:12, we read, "When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, 'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'"


Sponge

John 19:29 reads, "A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus' lips. When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit." Similar references to a sponge appear in Matthew 27:48 and Mark 15:36.


Deer of the Dawn

Deer of the Dawn is a Hebrew term used down to this day for the morning star, the last star to shine at the break of day. Deer of the Dawn, which can be expressed "Doe of the Dawn" of "Hind of the Morning," as well, was also the title of a familiar song in King David's day. The introduction to another prophetic passage about the death of Jesus, Psalm 22, instructs that it is to be sung to the tune of Deer of the Dawn. Finding an ELS for the term in Isaiah 53 dramatically links the two scriptures.


Greed, According to Matthew, Was the Rule

Historians are agreed on the wholesale corruption that reigned in Jerusalem at the time of the execution of Jesus. The payment to Judas for betraying His Lord is the most obvious example, but greed was certainly the rule in both the Jewish and Roman hierarchies of Jesus' day.

Jesus exposed religious greed when he drove the moneychangers out of the temple. Even in this holiest of places official fraud was ubiquitous. Not only did pilgrims have to buy "approved" animals and birds for sacrifice instead of being able to bring their own, but they could buy their sacrifices only with temple money, and had to pay a fee to exchange their own currency for it.


Spitting

In Isaiah 50:6, it was prophesied, "I offered my back to those who beat me, my cheeks to those who pulled out my beard; I did not hide my face from mocking and spitting." Jesus alluded to this prophecy in Mark 10:32-34. Mark 15:19, states, "Again and again they struck him on the head with a staff and spit on him." Other references include Matthew 26:67 and 27:30, and Luke 18:32.


Silver (Money)

This could be a reference to the 30 pieces of silver that Judas accepted as a bribe for betraying Christ, as described in Matthew 26:15-27:9. An ELS for silver with a skip of -40 and an ELS for thirty with a skip of +106 both cross the first word of Isaiah 52:14. The next word is crossed by an ELS for money with a skip of +13 and an ELS for blood with a skip of +6, perhaps referring to blood money.


Lamp of the Lord

In John 8:12, we read, "When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, 'I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.'"


Meal/Feast

Refers to the Last Supper.


Glorify

This could refer to a use of this word in John 17:1-5: "After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: 'Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.'"


Wonderful

In Isaiah 9:6, the prophecy was made, "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."


Seed

This could be a reference to the prophetic reference to a savior as "her seed" in Genesis 3:14-15: "So the LORD God said to the serpent: "Because you have done this, you are cursed more than all cattle, and more than every beast of the field; on your belly you shall go, and you shall eat dust all the days of your life. And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her Seed; He shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise His heel."

It could also be a reference to the seed in Jesus' famous parable of the sower (see Matthew 13:3-38). Or, it may refer to His role as descendant of Abraham (The Scripture does not say "and to seeds," meaning many people, but "and to your seed." -- Galatians 3:16, referring to God's promises to Abraham.)


Gate and Gate/Entrance

In John 10:7, Jesus was quoted as saying, "I tell you the truth, I am the gate for the sheep."


Son of God (Elohim and Yahweh)

In several places in the Gospels, Jesus is referred to as "the Son of God." See, for example, Matthew 14:33, 26:63, and 27:40,43,54. Both Son of Elohim and Son of God are possible renderings of this.


Second Adam

"Second Adam" is a Christian term for Christ. The first man "was of the dust of the earth; the second man from heaven." (Romans 5:12-19; I Corinthians 15:45-49.) Adam is Hebrew for the word man (NDA).


Treasure

Laying up treasure in heaven was often referred to by Jesus as that which characterized the acts of His followers (Matthew 6:21, Mark 10:21, Luke 12:33), or as a symbol for the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 13:44).


Thirty

This could be a reference to the 30 pieces of silver that Judas accepted as a bribe for betraying Christ, as described in Matthew 26:15-27:9. An ELS for silver with a skip of -40 and an ELS for thirty with a skip of +106 both cross the first word of Isaiah 52:14. The next word is crossed by an ELS for money with a skip of +13 and an ELS for blood with a skip of +6, perhaps referring to blood money.


Saul

The name of the apostle Paul before he converted to Christianity. Saul could very well have attended the crucifixion, although he never mentioned that.


The Vine

In John 15:1, Jesus made the claim, "I am the vine; you are the branches."


The Blessed

Mark 14:61 reads, "But Jesus remained silent and gave no answer. Again the high priest asked him, "Are you the Christ, the Son of the Blessed One?"


Last (Terminal, Final)

Could be a reference to the Last Supper, or to the belief that Christ's death on the cross was the last guilt offering required by God to atone for sin.


Have Hemmed Me In

This one-word term was borrowed from the literal text prophesying the crucifixion in Psalm 22:16, “Dogs have surrounded me, evil men have hemmed me in . . .”


Prince

In Isaiah 9:6, the prophecy was made, "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." In Acts 5:31, Peter made reference to Isaiah 9:6 when he said, "God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israel."
