The mapping of the genetic code, known as DNA, is probably the most important scientific breakthrough of the new millennium. On June 26, 2000, President Clinton and a group of world renowned scientists presented the first genetic map of the human DNA molecule. Clinton called the discovery the “language in which God created life.” “Mapping the chemical sequences for human DNA — the chemical “letters” that make up the recipe of human life — is a breakthrough that is expected to revolutionize the practice of medicine by paving the way for new drugs and medical therapies,” says one web site. This discovery has lasting physical and spiritual implications. A direct link can easily be found between the building blocks of life and the Creator of the universe. Mankind is fearfully and wonderfully made, with a hidden code within the cell of every life. This code is the alphabet of DNA that spells out the Creator’s name and man’s purpose. Scientist discovered a “map” of four DNA bases that carry the ability to sustain life. These bases, known as chromosomes, are paired differently for each person. Human DNA contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, made up of hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, carbon, and their acidic counterparts. Encoded within these elements is an amazing blueprint of life that proves the Creator has put His own unique stamp upon every person. This stamp is actually His name as revealed to Moses thousands of years ago. It was from the burning bush that the Almighty revealed his character as the great “I AM.” This name is the tetragrammaton of the Hebrew letters yod, hey, waw, hey. “I AM WHO I AM. This is what you are to say to the Israelites: `I AM has sent me to you. The Almighty said to Moses, “Say to the Israelites, `Y H W H , the mighty one of our fathers… This is my name forever, the name by which I am to be remembered from generation to generation,” Exodus 3:14,15. The Almighty has given us His name as a sign of His existence and an avenue of communication. However, translators have hidden this Hebrew name in English Bibles. In the Scriptures, the Sacred name of YHWH is used whenever the English words “LORD” or “GOD” appear in all capital letters. YHWH is used almost 7,000 times throughout the Bible as the only and unique name of the Mighty One of Israel. Isaiah corroborates this: “I am YHWH; that is my name; and my glory will I not give to another, ” Isaiah 42:7. Jeremiah adds his confirmation: “They shall know that my name is YHWH,” in chapter 16 verse 21. While Amos 5:8 says, “YHWH is his name.” The book of Zechariah declares: “In that day there shall be one YHWH, and his name one.” The Creator’s Name is YHWH. Now, compare this four-lettered name to the four elements that make up human DNA and discover an ancient secret of creation.
“The key to translating the code of DNA into a meaningful language is to apply the discovery that converts elements to letters. Based upon their matching values of atomic mass, hydrogen becomes the Hebrew letter Yod (Y), nitrogen becomes the letter Hey (H), oxygen becomes the letter Wav (V or W), and carbon becomes Gimel (G). These substitutions now reveal that the ancient form of YHWH’s name, YHWH, exists as the literal chemistry of our genetic code. Through this bridge between YHWH’s name and the elements of modern science, it now becomes possible to reveal the full mystery and find even greater meaning in the ancient code that lives as each cell of our bodies. When we substitute modern elements for all four letters of YHWH’s ancient name, we see a result that, at first blush, may be unexpected. Replacing the final H in YHWH with its chemical equivalent of nitrogen, YHWH’s name becomes the elements hydrogen, nitrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen (HNON) — all colorless, odorless, and invisible gases! In other words, replacing 100 percent of YHWH’s personal name with the elements of this world creates a substance that is an intangible, yet very real form of creation! This is not to suggest that YHWH is simply a wispy gas made of invisible elements. Rather, it’s through the very name that YHWH divulged to Moses over three millennia ago that our world and the foundation of life itself became possible. YHWH tells us that in the form of hydrogen, the single most abundant element of the universe, He is a part of all that has ever been, is, and will be. Indeed, in the earliest descriptions of YHWH, we are told that He is omnipresent and takes on a form in our world that cannot be seen with our eyes. Thus, He can be known only through His manifestations. The Sepher Yetzirah describes this nonphysical form of YHWH’s presence as the “Breath” of YHWH: “Ten Sefirot of Nothingness: One is the Breath of the Living YHWH, Life of worlds. This is the Holy Breath.”
Additionally, the first chapters of Genesis relate that it is in a nonphysical form that the Creator was present during the time of creation (Genesis 1:2). It was “the spirit of YHWH” that first moved over the face of the earth. Substituting modern elements for the ancient letters, it is clear that although we share in the first three letters representing 75 percent of our Creator’s name. While the presence of YHWH is the invisible and intangible form of the three gases hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen, the last letter of our name is the “stuff” that gives us the color, taste, texture, and sounds of our body: carbon. The one letter that sets us apart from YHWH is also the element that makes us “real” in our world – carbon. Through both the secret letter codes of antiquity, and the literal translation of DNA as an alphabet, we’re shown that something about our existence remains lasting and eternal. We share that never-ending quality with our Creator through a full seventy-five percent of the elements that define our genetic code,” wrote Gregg Braden in his book The God Code. This is scientific proof showing us that YHWH has written His own name upon every human being. Sefer Yetzirah (The Book of Creation) says, “Within the letters is a great, concealed mystical exalted secret… from which everything was created.” His name is within us, encoded into the basic cells of humanity. Every person, regardless of race, religion, sex, or status has the divine imprint inside their body. YHWH’s name is in every person… “there is…one YHWH and Father of all, who is over all and through all and in all,” says Ephesians 4:5. The potential of becoming like YHWH is in every person.
Genesis recounts that we have been made “in His image.” In the beginning, the Creator “breathed upon man and he became a living being.” It is this deposit from the heavens, the gift of a soul, that separates us from other species. Inside of each person is the breath of the Creator, known as the soul. In Hebrew, this is called the “neshamah.” The neshamah is a divine spark of YHWH found within mankind. “Should a person strive towards purity in life, he or she is aided by a holy neshama,” says the Zohar in Genesis 206a. The Scriptures translate “neshamah” as “breath, spirit, and inspiration.” It is the supernal soul of man, which pulls man towards YHWH. Imagine a pure light inside of every person in the world; this is the neshamah. It is totally good and unblemished. The neshamah is the part of YHWH within man. Proverbs 20:27 says, “The neshamah of man is the candle of YHWH, searching all the inward parts of the belly.” Through the neshamah, one may connect to the will, wisdom, and understanding of Yah. How? The neshamah longs to be reunited with the Almighty. Its only desire is to return to its source; to be reunited in purpose. Each cell of our body, containing the divine name, groans to be reunited with YHWH. But it can’t. Why not? Because of fleshly desires that result in sin. Sin stops the earth suit of the body from fully returning to its starting place with YHWH. The fleshly nature leads us to rebel against the Almighty’s will and His ways. Our soul can not cleave to YHWH because of our fleshly nature and ego. The desire to receive for self alone blocks the light of our neshamah. Our selfish actions are like a huge dark cloth, covering the Light of the Creator. Darkness grows, but the light remains. Try viewing mankind as an ember from the burning bush. The human body is the container of a divine spark from YHWH. Left alone, this spark will diminish and burn low through seeking pleasure in worldly desires. The false fulfillment of momentary happiness is a darkness that seeks to put out our fire. Each action of the flesh places another layer of darkness upon the light.
These layers of darkness are called “sin,” or “chet” in Hebrew. Chet is an ancient word that literally means to “miss the mark, loose focus, stray, miss the goal or path of right and duty, to incur guilt, incur penalty by sin, forfeit.” While many people think that someone who sins is a “bad person,” the Biblical concept is different. We all chet; we all sin; we all miss the mark. That doesn’t make us bad people, we’re just off target! In truth, the Hebrew word “Chet” appears in the Bible (Judges 20:16) referring to slingers who could shoot at a hair and not “chet”, meaning not to “miss the target.” Chet is failure in a person’s relationship with YHWH. Our goal should be to continually move closer to the target of YHWH, but chet causes distance. Sin is equivalent to “distance.” Our sins distance us from the Light within. “Your sins have separated between you and YHWH, and your chet (sins) have hidden his face from you, so that he will not hear,” Isaiah 59:2. Chet is the distance we place between our neshamah and our Creator as we miss the mark of the Scriptures. The center of YHWH’s bull’s eye is clearly explained within the pages of the first five books of the Bible. These teachings are often referred to as the “law.” In Hebrew these books of instruction are called “torah.” The Torah is YHWH’s will for mankind and blueprint for living.
“The Torah is holy, and the commandments holy, and just, and good,” says Romans 7:12. When we follow Torah we don’t sin. To obey the precepts of Torah is to stay on the straight and narrow road of redemption. A person sins when the Torah is violated or forgotten. The book of First John clarifies this. “Everyone who sins practices torahlessness. Because sin (chet) is torahlessness,” 1 John 3:4. The problem is that we can’t follow Torah enough. The obedience of today doesn’t erase the disobedience of yesterday. Though we obey the Torah, the layers of darkness remain within our soul. This is because Torah does not redeem. Torah describes how the redeemed believer is to live and relate to YHWH. Mankind is redeemed only through YHWH code. The soul code of DNA links man to YHWH. But, this doesn’t equate mankind to YHWH. We aren’t god. The code shows only our potential – to be like YHWH in our intentions and purpose. We can’t achieve His state of greatness. Just as a flashlight will not work without batteries, our sincere efforts to correct the soul are useless.
We just can’t correct our soul enough. We just can’t follow Torah enough. The darkness of chet is too much. Good works can’t dispel total darkness. “Whoever keeps the whole Torah and yet stumbles at just one point is guilty of breaking all of it,” says the Newer Testament. Prayer, obedience, and faith bring us closer to YHWH, but without the love of Messiah, we are still in the dark. Messiah is the floodlight that lights up our life. Moshiach’ love is the bridge that joins our neshamah to our Creator. The Savior is the light that saves us from eternal darkness and suffering. To handle the issue of sin, we must realize that stars are only seen at night. Under the deep darkness of sin is the light of the soul. Hidden in the DNA of every man, woman, and child is the YHWH code. To experience life at its fullest, all one must do is look inside and see the Sacred Name. YHWH is the path to purpose and way to life eternal. YHWH is our only hope. We need YHWH’s salvation to deliver us from evil. Let’s decipher this code and understand man’s redemption.
“Anyone who calls upon the name of YHWH will be saved,” Joel 2:32. This verse is quoted twice in the New Testament, in which both cases the Messiah is seen as fulfillment of this prophecy. The YHWH code is manifest in His Son. His son is the path of deliverance. Calling upon His Name allows the believer to excess the Almighty’s power for deliverance. Appropriately, the true name of Messiah demonstrates how this works…“And you shall call Him Yahshua, for He will save his people from their sins,” says Matthew 1:21. The Hebrew speaking, King of the Jews was given a Hebrew name. He wasn’t named “Jesus,” but “Yahshua.” In the gospels, the Messiah said that He came in His Father’s name – the name of YHWH. How is YHWH Yahshua’s name? The name Yahshua is a compound word, made up of two Hebrew phrases. First, YAH is a shortened version of the name of YHWH. The Name YAH is a poetic form of YHWH, found throughout the Psalms. The KJV says, “Sing praises to his name: extol him that rideth upon the heavens by his name YAH, and rejoice before him,” Psalm 68:4. Secondly, “shua” is a Hebrew word meaning to “deliver, turn, save, or salvation.” When these two words are put together, the Savior’s true name is revealed:
“YAH” + “shua” = “YHWH is salvation” = Yahshua
YHWH offers His salvation, His deliverance through the person of Yahshua. Yahshua bridges the gap between YHWH and our souls. Mankind was made in the image of YHWH. We have His name written upon our very DNA. Scientists have proved that His name is stamped upon every soul. However, because of chet, because of sin, layers of separation distance our soul from our creator. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of YHWH,” Romans 3:23.
Our stubborn self-will causes us to go an independent way. However, because of loving kindness, YHWH has “sent His only begotten son, that whosoever believes upon him would not perish but have everlasting life,” John 3:16. We can connect our neshamah to YHWH though his son, Yahshua. The Savior is the only path to deliverance and salvation from the sinful self. The layers of sin that cloak our neshamah can only be removed through His blood. “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become the children of YHWH, even to those who believe in His name,” John 1:12. The DNA within our bodies points to our Creator and the salvation that He has provided. The YHWH code, within each person, is His son Yahshua. ( By Rabbi Dani’el Rendelman – www.emetministries.com )
