HaMisparim LaDebarim
The Numbers of the Words
by Craig Wm. Peters

A White Stone He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit is saying to the assemblies: To him that overcomes, I will give to him of the hidden manna,1 and I will give to him a white stone, and upon the stone, a new name written, which no one knows, except he that receives it.
Revelation 2:17

a The writer was recently led on a trek which resulted in a what is at least a tentative
understanding of our opening Scripture. What is this white stone? And how might it be related to a Name that no one knows except he that receives it? This is the direction of the present meditation. While not being dogmatic, we believe the Word of hwhy in the Hebrew language provides us with a key that opens a better understanding of the white stone spoken of by eSwhy the Messiah. HaShem and the Name of Mosheh The misparim2 of the Hebrew word hashem (which means the name) is 345. This number is obtained as follows:

345 = (40) M + (300) S + (5) h = MSh = hashem = the Name

When one speaks the word HaShem, it is most often a reference to the Blessed Name of hwhy. Although hashem need not be a reference to the Name of hwhy, the majority of the time, one who speaks this word is referring to the Most High and His Qadosh3 Name. Amazingly, when the Hebrew word HaShem is reversed, we obtain the Hebrew name for the prophet Mosheh (Moses):




Having the same three letters, the misparim for Mosheh is, of course, equivalent to the misparim of the Hebrew word haShem:

345 = (5) h + (300) S + (40) m = hSm = Mosheh = Moses

This, in itself, is a miraculous revelation which, apart from unfathomable Providence and Inspiration, absolutely defies explanation! We say this because Mosheh was named by a

pagan princess upon having drawn him from the water.4 It is so amazing that reversing Moshehs name would describe his lifes great mission. Mosheh was called to more fully reveal and magnify the Name (haShem) of the Most High. The ministry of the prophet Mosheh ultimately served to proclaim Name of hwhy 5 and to make His ways known6 to all Yisrael and throughout all the earth.7 The Misparim for Onyx The writer was recently8 studying the Hebrew text of the early chapters of Bereshit (Genesis) when he was led to take a closer notice of the word for the onyx stone:

MhS = sh-hm = onyx

Of course, sho-ham (M-h-S) = 345 since it has the same three letters as Mosheh (h-S-m) and HaShem (M-S-h). When first realizing this some few weeks back,9 it left me rather puzzled, and I wondered: Since these are the same Hebrew letters in both words,10 how can a black onyx stone relate to the Name of hwhy? But this question would only remain in my mind for around one week! The prophetess11 was scanning channels one evening and she was inclined to stop on a PBS show. I sat resting between work sessions and do not even remember the subject matter of the telecast. Not long into our listening, the narrator referred to something which had been made from the white onyx stone! I was stunned. Before this time, I had never realized that onyx stone could be white. The overriding and incorrect assumption was that onyx stone only came in the color black. But as clear as day, the narrator spoke of something which had been made of white onyx. A New Name Written on a White Stone Readers have likely seen the correlation and have immediately realized the significance of these things. In Hebrew, HaShem (the Name) and shoham (onyx) both have the same three letters:

MSh = hashem = the Name MhS = sh-hm = onyx

Exodus 2:10 Exodus 3:14-15, Deuteronomy 32:1-3 6 Psalm 103:7 7 Through Mosheh, judgments came on Pharaoh which made the Name of hwhy known in all the earth. Exodus 9:16 Further, hwhy began through Mosheh, and continues through the Messiah, to make known the splendor of His Name (via His Torah), in all the earth. 2Corinthians 3:12-18, 4:6 The New Covenant would result in the Torah being written on the hearts of the people in the Spiriton tablets of human flesh (Jeremiah 31:31-34, 2Corinthians 3:2-3, Hebrew 8:8-12)so that the very Law which Yisrael of old failed to uphold would be upheld/kept in the lives of those who, like Abraham (Genesis 26:4-5), walked by faith in the Messiah. Romans 2:13, 3:31, 1John 2:4-6, 5:2-5 8 The Hebrew word for onyx first appears in Genesis 2:12. 9 At the time of this original writing, a few weeks back would have been some time in late July 2011. 10 (i.e., sho-ham and ha-shem, the onyx and the Name) 11 My wife has the gift of prophecy, and I have seen it work with considerable power on more than one occasion.

We believe this shows that onyx relates to the promise of eSwhy to give to those who overcome a white stone.12 On this stone will be a Name written which no one knows except the recipient. Without being dogmatic, this writer believes the Name spoken of by the Messiah will be a compound of the Name of hwhy with another word.13 This compound Name will reveal some magnificent aspect of the character of hwhy that He especially revealed in and through the life of the overcoming believer. And we are given the following promise through Shaul about the work which the Spirit of hwhy does within each believer: Having confidence of this very thing, that He who has begun in you a good work will complete it unto the day of eSwhy the Messiah. Philippians 1:6 The Name written on a white stone will exalt the Name above all names;14 it will magnify the Name of hwhy and will exalt the work which His Spirit has accomplished in the lives of every one who prevails to overcome in this present life. So this special Name will have a very special meaninga meaning which has personal sentiments that can only be understood by the individual who receives it. From the prophetic Hebrew language, all indications are that this special stone will be composed of white onyx. While being dogmatic over the matter is not wise, all the keys fit. To him that overcomes, I will give to him of the hidden manna, and I will give to him a white stone, and upon the stone, a new Name written, which no one knows, except he that receives it.
