Parashat Chukat - Extended Study 2

Symbolism of the Red Heifer

In relation to Yeshuah HaMashiach:

  1. A perfect one
  2. No blemish
  3. No yoke ever worn
  4. Slaughtered outside the camp (ie. outside Yerushalaim)
  5. Slaughtered before the faces of men
  6. Body consumed by fire (Holy Light symbol, ie. The Tomb)
  7. Ashes lay up outside the camp (remains in the tomb outside Yerushalaim)
  8. Ashes combined with pure spring water (ie. Waters of Life)
  9. Never-ending statute (Numbers 19:10) (continued in Yeshuah)
  10. Person, unclean, can wash with the sacrifice and pure water
  11. Persons unclean considered clean again the Seventh Day
  12. Third and Seventh Day sprinkling - contrast Wednesday and Sunday worship as a move off of Tuesday and Saturday [Sabbath] worship by Constantine I.

Hebraic letters interpolation:

Red or adom {ah-dome’} [Strong’s H0122], means red, ruddy (of man, horse, heifer, garment, water, lentils) and comes from adam {ah-dam’} [Strong’s H0119], which is basically ruddy, red, glare, grow red, etc. and happens to be from an unknown origin. See Adam (Genesis 2:19) the first ruddy or reddish colored man here, perhaps made of a red hued clay? In fact, Adam the man is indeed from adam {ah-dahm’} [Strong’s H0120] which is a direct derivation of adam {ah-dam’} [Strong’s H0119]. How about that for revelation?

Heifer or parah {phah-rah’} [Strong’s H6510, means cow being a male cattle, and comes from par [Strong’s H6499] which means young bull, steer, bullock. What is really interesting about this one is that par is also derived from parar {pah-rar’} [Strong’s H6565], which is a primary root and means basically to break, violate, frustrate, make ineffectual, to split, to crack through, or to break apart.

First, if you take the primary meanings of the derived terms, you get “adom parar” which gives the inference of the breaking of a man. Interestingly enough, in I Corinthians 15:45 we get the lesson about the first and last Adam and how the last Adam was needs be broken in the flesh to make a quickening spirit. All along, what has been a Chukatim or Hukkatim (unexplainable and in some instances even incomprehensible G-D things) to the Jewish people, has been a prophesy of the last adam to the whole Earth to come back into the Kingdom relationship with the Almighty.

Breaking into this further, we see on the letter basis that the term “parah adom” are the Hebrew letters (1a) Pey, (1b) Resh, (1c) Hey, and (2a) Aleph, (2b) Dalet, (2c) Mem (Sophit). In the same order, these mean: (1a) Mouth [Speech/Silence], (1b) Beginning/Head, (1c) Breath/Spirit, and (2a) G-D/Master/Ox, (2b) Door, (2c) Water/Kingdom. The final idea begins to form out of these from the terms of the following:

Speech from the Mouth,
which Begins in or is Headed by
The Spirit or the Breath of G-D Who is the Master,
is the Door to the Living Water of The Kingdom.
In other words, confess with the mouth that thy soul may be saved.

Surely, this is not the only meanings one can derive out of it, but this seems too meaningful to be coincidental. One thing that we can be sure of is that G-D takes care of His own and He will not forsake them or forget them.
