Numbers of the Ladder

jacobs-ladder-engravingJACOB’S LADDER
By John Lewis

“And Jacob dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it. And, behold, the LORD stood above it…” Genesis 28:12-13a

There is much to be said about this ancient passage of scripture. Within it are the keys to many esoteric teachings, and mysteries which have been hidden ages past, that are now being revealed. In a previous writing we dealt with “Jacob’s Journey,” the journey of all humanity to meet God in the 7 Feasts or Experiences; consummating with Tabernacles, Fullness. In this teaching we will deal with the types, shadows, history and esoteric truth surrounding “Jacob’s Ladder.”

Jacob has left from Beersheba, the well of sevens; a place where you walk in full awareness of the 7 Spirits of God. Also meaning the experience where the 7 Energy Centers (Chakras) or 7 Glands of the Endocrine System are balanced. During his night season of going within in this certain place he shuts his eyes to the physical plane and awakes to the spiritual. He sees this Ladder set up on the earth, angels ascending and descending. {We can be thankful for Providence during the night seasons of life, and the assurance of the angels of God watching over us}.

The Mystery Of Numbers

In order to get a fuller understanding of “Jacob’s Ladder,” we must understand the mystery of numbers. In this lesson I will share only enough to trigger your spirit. God has created a very elaborate system to conceal and reveal Himself, and His plan for all aspects of creation. This is an ancient mathematical system of numbers. Everything and everyone in the universe has a numeric value, even God. Once we learn, or remember how to decipher these numbers (because this information is in our spirit and DNA), we will understand.

As in classical algebra or geometry, the Spirit uses symbols to conceal messages. Each letter of the Hebrew alphabet is a symbol and has a numeric value. I can see by the Spirit that the time is very near that we will no longer read the Bible as we have in time past. As the knowledge of the glory of God increases, we will learn, or remember the heavenly mathematics that are concealed within the Book of Life within our being. All of the history, prophecy, miracles and parables will take on a completely new meaning. For many this is already happening. It is the Spirit of God that is teaching us this mystical algebra and sacred equations.

“Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count…” Rev.13:18 “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars, if you are able to number them…” Gen.15:5 “And even the very hairs of your head are numbered.” Matt. 10:30 Everything, even the sands of the sea are numbered.

“It is the glory of God to conceal a thing, but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” Prov. 25:2 God can only be found by those who earnestly seek Him. The natural mind can not comprehend, it can only criticize. Anyone can have a religious or emotional experience. All have been invited to Salvation, whosoever will, let him come. Not all that come are sincerely eager to Search Out the Matters That Are Concealed from the natural mind. This is the honor of Kings! The Priestly and Prophetic Anointings are great, but I feel a higher calling; Kingship. “Is there no king in you?” Micah 4:19 We are being given the honor to be initiated into the mysteries of the ages.

Since we are realizing that our Creator is very detail, and that all the stories of the Old and New Testament have a deeper meaning; have you ever wondered how many steps were on the Ladder? According to Josephus the historian, it was believed that this Ladder had 72 steps. The number 72 is sprinkled throughout both Old and New Testament, concealed from the eyes of those that only see the literal interpretation of scripture. Many times it is used in close association with the number 70.

The Number 70

I will not deal with the negative side of 70, which denotes Judgment, in this writing. (You may study this regarding Israel’s captivity in Babylon and man’s life span being limited to 70 years because of transgression Psalms 90:10). However, Moses, who wrote this Psalm lived to be 120.

The Hebrew words for wine (yayin), and secret (sode); both have the numeric value of 70. In the natural when one drinks wine, he is prone to reveal secrets. There are secrets that God spoke into your spirit when He knew you before you were formed in the womb. As we drink of the new wine (Spirit), we are given boldness and awareness to utter the mysteries of God. That which has been kept secret, and limited to the chosen few is now being made available to all. The number 70 speaks of Revealing Secrets, Restoration and Council. It also speaks of Forgiveness, 70×7.

The first Mystery School of Prophets among Israel was made up of 70 of the tribes of Israel. Num. 11 God took of Moses spirit and imparted onto them. “…They prophesied, and did not cease.” verse 25 They were able to tap into the supernatural realm. This was the Old Testament Sandhedrin (Council). In the NT Jesus called 70 other disciples besides the 12, and gave them power to works all kinds of miracles.

The Number 72

The ancients say that Jacob’s Ladder had 72 steps. The number 72 denotes, Celestial Council, Fullness of the Nature (Name) of God and Resurrection. According to Hebrew history, each step on the Ladder represented a name of God. The 72 Names of God. It is called, The Shem hamphorash, meaning the unpronouncable name; which has the numerical value of 72. The Tetragramation (YHWH or YHVH) with all 7 or 10 of the Hebrew vowels.

This name was too sacred to be written and could only be spoken by few. The high priest on the Day of Atonement used this name to supernaturally transport from the Holy Place to the Holy of Holies. He was not limited by the 18 inches thick veil that hung in front of him. The prophetic Levitical Choir chanted the YHWH with the Sacred vowels to bring destruction on their enemies during warfare. See 2 Chron. 20 And the king also had access to this name.

Jacob’s Ladder is a revelation of the most mysterious nature of God within man, the heights and depths of ascending and descending. Jesus Himself said that He is that Ladder. He is the Original Blueprint of biological manifestation of God’s DNA. John 1:51

In Numbers 11 we find that 70 men were called and anointed with the spirit of prophecy to lead the church in the wilderness. They were not led by human intellect, but by the spirit of prophecy. The spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus Christ. Rev. 19:10 Aaron and Moses, plus the 70. (2 + 70= 72). John the Baptist is preaching, preparing the way for Messiah. “And after these things the Lord appointed other 70 also…” Luke 10:1

John the Baptist and Jesus, plus 70 others. (2 + 70= 72). This is the New Testament Spiritual Sandhedrin (Council), showing the way back to Divine manifestation in human form. The literal Sandhedrin made up of mostly Saducees, consisted of 2 clerks and 70 priest, 72. This was the Supreme Court of Israel. Most of the times only 71 were counting, so that when deliberating there would be an uneven number to prevent a hung jury.

According to history the Old Testament Hebrew was translated into Greek by 70-72 scholars, under the order of Ptolemy II. It is called, the Septuagint, meaning, of the 70.

WHAT ABOUT THE 144,000 ?

What’s in the number 144 or 144,000 ? 72 x 2=144. In Rev. 21:17, we find the measurement of the wall of the holy city, New Jerusalem. This is not a literal skyscraper city somewhere in another part of the universe, that will one day float down to the Middle East. (That is a very dangerous and erroneous teaching.) Verses 9-10 clearly states that the New Jerusalem is the Bride, the Lamb’s wife. Furthermore, Jesus told us that we are the city set on a hill.

The measurements of the wall (realm) in this metaphysical city is 144 cubits. 144 cubits = 300 ft or 72 yards, this is the measure of a man. God has given us the 5-fold Ministry to grow us up “..unto a Perfect (complete-mature) Man, unto the Measure of the stature of the Fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:13 As stated early, 72 denotes Fullness.

At the end of Revelation 13 we are introduced to the mark, name and number of the beast, which certain individuals will have IN, not on their right hand or forehead. Revelation 14 opens with the 144,000 on a Mystical Place of Worship called Mt. Zion, they have their Father’s name written IN their foreheads.

These are Initiates of the Cosmic Mystery School of Prophets. They have ascended to the Mt. Zion Experience by way of Jacob’s Ladder. Step by step taking on the divine names/attributes of God, changing the sequences that dictates physical limitations and death. (When we descended to come to this lower vibration, we forget those names each step spiraling downward). The 144,000 – Symbolic of the 72 Initiates during Moses time and the 72 Initiates during Jesus time. 1000 denotes rest from the works of the flesh: also a number of no end.

The 144,000 are the Overcomers, Sons and Daughters of God, the Manchild. A people no longer striving in themselves, they are redeemed from the earth, no longer bound by the drives of the earth nature/flesh. They are not taken off the earth. They are not contaminated by women (religious, carnal teachings, traditions), they are spiritual virgins. They are God’s Tithe, not following man, but the Lamb. They have tapped into the Christ within and are expressing Him. Another interesting thing, they have harps. The harp is associated with the prophetic, utterance of mysteries and dark sayings. Ps.78:2-3

The 144,000 are singing a song that no carnally minded person can learn. This is the sacred song that the ancient prophetic Levitical Choir sang. They sang the unprouncable name of God, the Tetragramaton (YHWH) using the 7-10 mystical vowels; all 72 names of God which equals 72. We thank God for giving us the name, Jesus (Yeshua), and all that it stands for. He said that there would be a group of Initiates or Overcomers that he would reveal His new name unto. Rev. 3:12 Of course nothing is new to God, but it would be new to us. Could that be the most hallowed 72 names in one Name, the mystery of God within man expressed?? This 144,000 have the name IN their forehead, which means, they are operating out of the Divine Mind.

This 72,000 x 2 group also represent Melchizedek, the Eternal Cosmic High Priest Order. The mysterious robe of Aaron, the high priest had bells and pomegranates on the hem. It was worn only on the most holy day of the year, the day of At-One-Ment. It is said that there were 72 bells and 72 pomegranates alternating around the hem of the robe. 72 + 72=144 To touch the hem of the Melchizedek Priest garment, is to touch or experience the Name that brings immortality. (Aaron was only the shadow of Melchizedek). Although we don’t consciously know this sacred name that equals 72, I believe through the baptism in the Holy Ghost we are able to speak that unknown name. “For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue..speaks to God, no man understands him, in the spirit he speaks mysteries.” I Cor. 14:2

The number 144 or the 144,000 on Mt. Zion are not literal measurements or number of certain people. That is a mystical number denoting, Fullness, Maturity, Overcoming the physical plane, and Rest. These are not natural, or religious Jews, nor they from the Jehovah’s Witness denomination. The only Jew that God recognizes for this experience is the spiritual one. “For he is not a Jew who is one outwardly (race, religion, nationality): .. But he is a Jew who is one inwardly (grace, relationship, holy nation).” Rom.2:28-29 Why is that so hard for modern Christianity to understand?!


{Notice the similarity in the Human Backbone and Spine with Jacob’s Ladder.}

There are 33 vertebrae in the human spinal column: 7 cervical vertebrae, 12 thoraic, 5 lumbar in the small of the back, 5 fused vertebrae forming a solid bone, the sacrum (tail bone). Looks like an inverted pyramid and was also called “the seat of immortality.” In the coccyx, at the bottom of the sacrum are fused 4 bones. If you were to multiply the number of vertebrae, 33 by 2, counting both sides of the vertebrae on the spinal column we will find the number 66. (33 x 2=66) 6 is the number of man, for he was created on the 6th day, there are also 66 books of the Bible given to man. (66 + 6=72) See the similarities of Jacob’s Ladder and the Spinal Column.

Below notice the Human Skull. It has 22 bones, it sits at the top of the spinal column. The Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters, the 22nd letter, Tav, means Light. There is much to be said about this, which we will deal with in other writings. At the top of Jacob’s Ladder stood Yahweh, the Light of the world. The light of the body is the eye (mind-brain), says Jesus.

The Human Skull Has 22 Bones. 22, the Number of Light.

Now look at our DNA below. You will clearly see Jacob’s Ladder, the double helix and chromosones. Within our DNA is Light (bio-photons), as Jacob saw the Lord of Light standing at the top of this spiral staircase that leads to heaven within. Each level of consciousness changes the mis-sequence codes or forgotten names of God to the original, until All is restored and we become the Tetragammation.

For those that have eyes to see and ears to hear, we have revealed some of the metaphysical/ spiritual aspects of Jacob’s Ladder. How it relates to the prophetic times we are in and the anatomy of man.

Above the 72nd step, of your ascent awaits Yahweh to welcome you home into All that you are. As your spirit and soul completely awakens out of the sleep which you were lowered into, you will realize the Awesomeness of your experience and God. In every dark season and certain place of your life, the angels of God were there. Continue to climb! Only stop to rest for a moment to realize how far you’ve come, be thankful, for you are closer today. The highest experience is yet to come.

May you enter a new height as you ascend in God. I can hear the Voice of the One who stands at the top of the 72nd step saying,

Come up here, there’s more that you must see and learn- Come up here, to the fullness of My Spirit, Return.

Don’t be afraid, My angels will escort you each step of the way- Rest in Me, My Word will guide you to the light of the new day.

As you experience the many aspects of Me, you will discover your true self- With each step of faith there will be less of you left.

May the Lord Jesus, by His Holy Ghost cause this word to explode in your innermost being, becoming a reality day by day. May the spirit of wisdom and revelation knowledge be imparted into your life in a greater measure. I declare and decree all your need to be met – Experience Abundance on every level of your life. Experience Healing, Deliverance, Peace and Joy – In the name of Jesus, type of the unpronouncible 72 names of God in One. So be it!!

    Have you come across thoughts about junk DNA being vital elements of Jacob’s Ladder?

    So many connections.
