There is one more revelation in the Picture and Number meaning of the Hebrew word for Blood. Although we do not have space in this article to consider this exhaustive topic, I can give you a hint that will allow you to begin turning this fact over in your mind for purpose of doing some serious meditation and consideration. 

The disclosure is simply this. The letters Dalet and Mem are the last two letters in the Hebrew name Aleph Dalet Mem. The name ADAM.

The Messianic implications of this are staggering when you consider that one of the names identified with the Messiah is ADAM. Yeshua Ha Mashiach is the Last Adam. 

And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation; Revelation 5:9

But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God? And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance. Hebrews 9:11-15
