Matt.24 [7] For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

1. Peter 4  [17] For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

The Number 171 - The Face of God

And Jacob called the name of the place Peniel: for I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. Genesis 32.30

That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life; I John 1.1

O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! Romans 11.33

Notwithstanding they would not hear, but hardened their necks, like to the neck of their fathers, that did not believe in the LORD their God.2 Kings 17.14

The Number 171 is the common verse index of the Theophanies and consequent face falling found in Genesis 17.1 and Matthew 17.1. It is the value of Peniel (The Face of God) which is based on the Peh KeyWord Panim (Face) and is linked to the theme of the Coming of the Lord when all flesh will see God's Face, His Power and His Judgement. The only ones who need worry about this are those who "did not believe in the Lord."

Genesis 17.1 and Matthew 17.1.

Two Theophanies

Genesis 17 Matthew 17

And when Abram was ninety years old and nine, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said unto him, I am the Almighty God; walk before me, and be thou perfect. And I will make my covenant between me and thee, and will multiply thee exceedingly. And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying,

Genesis 17 (vs. 1f)

When God appears to a person in the Bible, it is called a Theophany, from the Greek roots pic(Theos, God) and pic(Phaine, Shine/Show). The second of these roots is deeply integrated with the meaning of the Pey KeyWord pic(Panim, Face), the basic idea being that of showing oneself by turning to face another. This is the word used in the verse quoted above when God said "walk before me, and be thou perfect." The word translated as before is pic(L'Pani) which is construct form of the Pey KeyWord Panim prefixed by the Letter Lamed. Its distribution is maximized on Spoke 17 in the Esther KeyPhrase "Before the King". Panim appears again in the next verse when Abram fell on his face. This is the scriptural debut of the idea of "falling on your face" in the presence of God. The exact words written are:

The word translated as "And he fell" is just "he will fall" prefixed with the Letter Vav, which signifies the conjunctive and indicates past tense. The phrase "he will fall" is just "yifoll" - the Yod prefix indicating the second person imperfect. The stem is the common letters found in all inflections that carries the permanent meaning. In this case, the stem of the Hebrew word meaning fall is Pey - Lamed, pronounced fall. This is probably the most obvious of the manifold Hebrew roots seen in English as well as many of the worlds languages.

In perfect harmony with Genesis 17 and the meaning of the Letter Pey, we find exactly the same pattern in chapter sequence of Matthew. The first occurrence of a Theophany with people falling on their faces is found in the Transfiguration reported in Matthew 17:

And after six days Jesus taketh Peter, James, and John his brother, and bringeth them up into an high mountain apart, And was transfigured before them: and his face did shine as the sun, and his raiment was white as the light.

And, behold, there appeared unto them Moses and Elias talking with him. Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus, Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias. While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him. And when the disciples heard it, they fell on their face, and were sore afraid. And Jesus came and touched them, and said, Arise, and be not afraid. And when they had lifted up their eyes, they saw no man, save Jesus only.

We have this integrated thematic link based on the meaning of the Letter Pey:

Conceptual Debut: Falling on the Face before God

Genesis 17Matthew 17

Both passages begin in verse 17.1. This links directly to the value of "The Face of God" which also is a Pey KeyWord:

…and The Number 171 is linked to the theme of the Coming of the Lord when all flesh will see God's Face, His Power and His Judgement. The only ones who need worry about this are those who "did not believe in the Lord."

Coming of the Lord

Where is the Promise of His Coming?

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming?

2 Peter 3 (Spoke 17, Cycle 3)

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts.

Malachi 3 (Spoke 17, Cycle 2)

 

Pey KeyWords

פה

Pey: Mouth, Blow

פנים

Panim: Face (with its associated
concept of appearance)

פתח

Petach: Open, Door

פצה

Petsah: Burst Open, Split

פאר

Pa'ar: Open Wide, Gape

פרר

Parar: Break, Crush (this is the
root of
Purim)

פרץ

Parats: Burst, Break forth

The Coming of the Lord is one of the great themes of Spoke 17. It is based on the power of Pey as expressed in the small sample of KeyWords on the right. The list could go on and on. The power of Pey is one of the most obvious of all the twenty-two letters, it crosses all linguistic boundaries, appearing even in the Oriental languages (see Pey Alphabetic Verses). The most powerful combination is in the root Pey - Resh which also is the root of Purim, the central theme of Esther, Book 17.

The meaning of Pey manifests in a Spoke 17 KeySet based on the phrase "of his coming" in proximity to the word "fire". Searching the entire Bible for all verses containing this phrase within three verses of the word "fire" yields exactly two hits, one from Malachi and one from 2 Peter on Spoke 17 of the Bible Wheel:

 

Malachi 3.1ff

2 Peter 3.3ff

Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the LORD of hosts. But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner’s fire, and like fullers’ soap: And he shall sit as a refiner and purifier of silver: and he shall purify the sons of Levi, and purge them as gold and silver, that they may offer unto the LORD an offering in righteousness.

Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

We have the KeyLink:

KeyLink: The Coming of the Lord

Malachi 3chain2 Peter 3

This KeyLink exists in six of the seven versions used for comparison in this study. It is missing only in the NIV because it uses a slightly different phraseology - though the same idea is expressed. The KeyLink is actually a first-order projective KeyLink because it is two-dimensional, with the Point P(17,3) on Cycle 2 linking to the Point P(17,3) on Cycle 3. Using geometric notation, we can represent this link as:

KeyLink: The Coming of the Lord

PBible( 172, 3 ) chainPBible( 173, 3 )

These linked verses form a beautiful Question and Answer doublet. The scoffers quoted in 2 Peter ask "Where is the promise of his coming?" while the Lord assures us in Malachi "Behold, he shall come, sayeth the Lord of Hosts." A similar Question and Answer fomat is displayed in the article God's Name Despised.

This theme is extremely strong. It sets Malachi and 2 Peter from all other books of the Bible, as discussed further in The Coming Day of God. It is of some interest that the modern scoffers - a.k.a. "biblical scholars" - use the unique features of 2 Peter that supernaturally link it to Malachi as evidence that the book is not genuine! The divine joke is that one of the reasons cited is that the Pey KeyWord παρουσια (parousia, coming/advent) appears three times in 2 Peter and not once in I Peter. Ha! Exactly the same kind of "logic" is applied to the Prophet Isaiah who has been sawn in half with claims of dual authorship. In both case, the claims made by God's adversaries do nothing but add yet another stone on top of the great mountain of evidence proclaiming the endless glory of God and the truth of His everlasting Word!

The integration of Malachi 3.1 with the great themes governed by the letter Pey is further seen in these three Pey KeyWords found in that one verse:

1) פנה (panah, prepare) The primary meaning of panah is to turn. It is the root of פנים (panim, face), since the face is what is seen when one turns towards another.

2) פנים (panim, before) This is the same as the word for a face.

3) פתאם (pithom, suddenly). This word is from the root פתע (petho) which Gesenius defines as deriving from "the opening of the eyes, hence, a moment."
