Mount Sinai is famous in history as the mountain on which Moses received the Ten Commandments. As an idiom Mount Sinai marks an important historical event all over the world. The Corona pandemic is a Mount Sinai.
Slaughter the Bull at the Altar
Old Testament Jews used to slaughter the bull at the altar for atonement and for worship. Slaughtering the Bull at the altar as an idiom means getting a remission for a wrong doing. Some rich scoundrels belonging to India like Vijay Malllia and Deeraj Modi have got a bull to slaughter.
The outbreak of the COVID 19 virus was a man made one, in the laboratories of the roguish, diabolic country China. The virus was created to destabilize the international Economy. When the shares of international companies fell, China was able to buy them at paltry prices. Many countries of Europe and Asia and America became victims of this clandestine subversion. COVID 19 as an idiom means destabilization of world economies. China should be declared as a COVID 19 thug State and all nations should embargo its goods.
Bitter to Sweet
This is an idiom I have birthed from Judaism. When the Israelites after their liberation from Egypt spend their life in the desert and started grumbling to Moses their liberator that the waters tasted bitter. Then God instructed Moses to strike the rock with a Shepherd’s Crook. When he did, the waters turned sweet. Bitter to Sweet as an Idiom means life becoming better after a period of trials and tribulations.

Yesterday night I had a strange dream of being attacked by an unknown person. I looked up at the dream dictionary and found out that being attacked means the fear and insecurities of the dreamer. Anyway the dream was not a pleasant one. I hope unlucky days will soon vanish and the grace of God Jehovah Jesus will pervade with me with LUCK.
I developed a new figure of speech called (thought (a) phor). For example: the word liberal has the antonyms strict and also conservative. Such a word which has two different antonyms is called a thoughtaphor.
I read into the Bible and I have coined two new idioms. Long after the death of the Pharaoh and after the reign of Joseph, the country was ruled by a Pharaoh who ill-treated the Jews. God started sending the 7 plagues in-order to let the Israelites go. But the Pharaoh remained adamant as ever. Then God asked the Semites to kill a goat or sheep and smear the blood on their doors and in the night the hand of God will visit the country and kill the entire first one born except the Jews. Smearing the door with blood means victory over one’s enemies. Yes, God will smear my door with blood. God also asked the captives in Egypt to have feast with unleavened bread known as the festival of the Passover. The Festival of the Passover means joy and wondrous rejoicing after a period of great trials and hardships in life.
Today is 13th Friday, a bad omen for those who fear the number 13 known as Triskaidekaphobia .13 is a complex number and can be related to Christ and therefore standing for resurrection and rejuvenation. I did some reading into the Bible and read the story of Moses who was chosen by God for the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. God told him to use a staff and do the miracles before the Pharaoh. The staff of Moses can be connoted into an idiom and it means prosperity and fortune. I wish the staff of Moses to enter my life.
We all know how Joseph, hated by his brothers out of jealousy, sold him to the Egyptians. There he became a supervisor in Potiphar’s household. When Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce the handsome Joseph, he did not relent. She accused him of molestation and Potiphar threw him into jail. In prison he was able to successfully interpret the dreams put forth by the baker and the wine maker. Later on he was called by the Pharaoh to interpret his dreams which he did ebulliently. The pharaoh placed him as the second in command next to him and asked him to stockpile food for the coming drought. Joseph as an idiom stands for the evolution of triumph or victory after a period of disaster and ruin. How I wish for a period of Joseph to happen in my life.
We all know the story of Abraham who was tested by God Jehovah Jesus to sacrifice his son at the altar. When he was about to sacrifice his son, God said: ‘stop; you have kept your steadfast faith in me; sacrifice the ram entangled in the bush.’ Sacrifice as an idiom stands for good things happening in life and good things yet to come after a period of downs in one’s life. My enduring faith, trust, and hope in God—Jehovah Jesus will have a positive outcome as sacrifice.
What I am referring to here is the Old Testament Joseph. Joseph’s phase of life was three fold and they are: Misfortune, Dream Interpretation, Prosperity and Reconciliation.
The brothers of Joseph hated him as he was the Father Jacob’s pet and to make matters worse Joseph said that he had a dream and in it he could see all brothers on their knees and worshiping him. The brothers planned to kill him but at the last moment they sold Jacob to the Egyptians. In Egypt Joseph was the master of Potiphar’s household. Potiphar’s wife became enamored with him and forced him to go to bed with her. Joseph would not relent and Potiophar’s wife said to Potiphar that she was molested and had Jacob put in jail. This is a period of Joseph’s misfortune. I don’t want a Joseph to happen to me. In prison he was able to interpret the dreams of the cupbearer and the baker. The cupbearer and baker were released from prison. Then all of a sudden the Pharaoh had a strange dream which no one could interpret. It was like this: seven stout cows came and then seven famished ones came next and ate up the fat cows. Seven strands of fattened grain came and then seven emaciated grain came next and ate the obese strands of grain. The cupbearer told to the Pharaoh of Joseph. Joseph was ushered to the Pharaoh and Joseph said: this is what the dream is: there will be seven years of plenty and after that there will be seven years of famine. The Pharaoh was impressed with his interpretation and made him the minister of Egypt and asked him to collect all the abundance and store in big God Downs. This is a period of Joseph’s prosperity. As Idioms Joseph, means a dream interpreter and also fortune. Then comes Joseph’s period of reconciliation with his brothers. In the beginning he was bit curt with them but later he wept in the privacy of his room and then welcomed the brothers and invited them to come and live in Egypt.
We all know the story of Job in the Old Testament. Job was persecuted by the Devil and faced trials and tribulations in life. Job as an idiom means a period of tribulations and trials. Let 2019 be not a job for me.
When Joseph was employed in Potiophar’s household, his wife became enamored with Joseph. Joseph declined her amorous advances on moral grounds. This is a poem about the infatuation of Potiphar’s Wife
Your body is bronze…
My lips are
Of morn ….
Is a burning
Lake of fire…
Come my Joseph
When I read God’s WORD: The Bible I am humbled. The Bible is a grand design of a Master Architect. The New Testament and the Old Testament are so intricately connected. Every Word in scripture is so intimately connected and The Bible is more fascinating—more than Da Vinci Code. Let me describe the magical numerology which God revealed to me.
The Books of the Bible are 12. So too are the tribes of Old Testament Israel found in the Old Testament. 1+2=3 and 3 symbolizes the Trinity: The Father, The Son and the Holy Spirit. Again the 12 tribes of Israel are divided into camps of three and we get the number 4. And we get three groups of 12. It was 12 years when Jesus entered the temple and conducted discourses with the priests. 4 is symbolic for the four points of the cross on which Jesus died. 3 is again symbolic on the day which Jesus resurrected from the dead.
The Hebrew word for God is YHWH meaning the sacred unutterable word of God. YHWH has four letters again pointing to the four points of the cross.
