[Part 2] Revelations - Rev. 2,3 - A Message: Let the one who has an ear hear



This is picking up where I left off in [Part 1] Revelations - Intro and Rev. 1 - The Seven Lamps 

Revelations, chapters 2 and 3 contain a distributed message, for those "with an ear to hear", but first you need a little more background:
"Many Kabbalists view the Torah as the word of God and Hebrew as the language of creation. In this view, the alphabet and language are divine and have immense magical power. Many of the source texts of Kabbalah are commentaries on the bible, and derive their insights using a variety of devices, such as puns, anagrams, gematria, (letter manipulations) AND CROSS REFERENCES TO THE SAME WORD IN DIFFERENT CONTEXTS. The reader is presumed to be adept at playing this game, which becomes completely inaccessible in translation."
What we're dealing with here are Gematria, Temurah, and Notarikon:
"Gematria /ɡəˈmeɪ.tri.ə/ (Greek: meaning geometry) is an Assyro-Babylonian-Greek system of code and numerology later adopted into Jewish culture that assigns numerical value to a word or phrase in the belief that words or phrases with identical numerical values bear some relation to each other or bear some relation to the number itself as it may apply to nature, a person's age, the calendar year, or the like. Similar systems, some of which were derived from or inspired by Hebrew gematria, have been used in other languages and cultures. The best-known example of Hebrew gematria is the word Chai ("alive"), which is composed of two letters that (using the assignments in the Mispar gadol table shown below) add up to 18. This has made 18 a "lucky number" among Jews, and gifts in multiples of 18 are very popular.[1]" - wikipedia
Notarikon (Hebrew: נוטריקון, Noṭariqōn‎) is a method of deriving a word, by using each of its initial (Hebrew: ראשי תיבות) or final (Hebrew: סופי תיבות) letters to stand for another, to form a sentence or idea out of the words. Another variation uses the first and last letters, or the two middle letters of a word, in order to form another word.[1] The word "notarikon" is borrowed from the Greek language (νοταρικόν)), and was derived from the Latin word "notarius" meaning "shorthand writer."[2] Notarikon is one of the three ancient methods used by the Kabbalists (the other two are gematria and temurah) to rearrange words and sentences. These methods were used in order to derive the esoteric substratum and deeper spiritual meaning of the words in the Bible." - wikipedia
"Temurah is one of the three ancient methods used by Kabbalists to rearrange words and sentences in the Bible, in the belief that by this method they can derive the esoteric substratum and deeper spiritual meaning of the words. (The others are Gematria and Notarikon.) Temurah may be used to change letters in certain words to create a new meaning for a Biblical statement. The Hebrew alphabet is an Abjad or consonantary alphabet. Techniques that applied to English will mostly transform sense into a nonsensical series of letters are more feasible in Hebrew."
There are three simple forms of Temurah:
Atbash: Replacing the first letter with the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, the second with the next-to-last, and so on.a=z, b=y, c=x, etc.Avgad: Replacing each letter with the preceding letter.a=b, b=c, c=dAlbam: Replacing the first letter of the alphabet with the twelfth, the second with the thirteenth, and so on.a=l, b=m, c=n, etc." -wikipedia
There's no real set group of rules.. it's fuzzier.  It's more a way of thinking... A combination of left and right brain..  You'll find that in most texts like this, the author will give you the "alphabet" throughout the text using the above methods...  For the master of this type of work, see "Abraham Abulafia".

The message i'm talking about is loosely based on the number 7, and the repetition of "Let the one who has an ear to hear".  This is the same "call to the initiate" as later on in Revelations regarding the calculation of the number of the beast.

Distribution in The Book of Revelations:




(2/7) Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations: To him that conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is the paradise of god.(2/11) He will by no means be harmed by the second death.(2/17) I will give him a white pebble, and upon the the pebble a new name written which no one knows except the one receiving it.(2/27) And to him that conquers and observes my deeds down to the end I will give authority over the nations, and he shall shepherd the people with an iron rod so that they will be broken to pieces like clay vessels, the same as I received from my Father, and I will give him the MORNING STAR.(3/5) He that conquers will thus be arrayed in white outer garments and I will by no means blot out his name in the book of life but I will make acknowledgement of his name before my father and his angels.(3/12) I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God and he will by no means go out anymore, and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which descends from my god, and tht new name of mine. (3/21) To the one that conquers I will grant to sit with me on my throne even as I conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.

Cleaned up, here's how the message would read:

Let the one who has an ear hear what the spirit says to the congregations:

To him that conquers I will grant to eat of the tree of life, which is the paradise of god.  He will by no means be harmed by the second death. I will give him a white pebble, and upon the the pebble a new name written which no one knows except the one receiving it. And to him that conquers and observes my deeds down to the end I will give authority over the nations, and he shall shepherd the people with an iron rod so that they will be broken to pieces like clay vessels, the same as I received from my Father, and I will give him the MORNING STAR.  He that conquers will thus be arrayed in white outer garments and I will by no means blot out his name in the book of life but I will make acknowledgement of his name before my father and his angels. I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God and he will by no means go out anymore, and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which descends from my god, and tht new name of mine. To the one that conquers I will grant to sit with me on my throne even as I conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.

This will be explained in Part 4.
