The Mystery of Compassion
and its connection with Eternity!
Mem Chet Reysh

The first time the literal Hebrew word translated into English as Compassion appears on the pages of Scripture is in Deuteronomy 13:17b. It is there that we read:
That the Lord may turn from the fierceness of his anger, and shew thee mercy, and have compassion upon thee, and multiply thee, as he hath sworn unto thy fathers;
The entirety of Deuteronomy 13 is a Song of Moses in which he reveals the simple message that the Lord will not tolerate his people going after other so-called gods. His warning is not only to the children of Israel, but to any so-called prophet or teacher that leads his children away from His way, even if they produce signs and wonders. The song of Moses prophesies that the children of Israel will not heed this warning and as a result will bring upon themselves dislocation, heartache, poverty, and too much sorrow to even innumerate. This is the context for the introduction of the Hebrew word literally translated Compassion.
The Hebrew word Compassion is composed of three letters that are also pictures and numbers. The three Hebrew Letters are Reysh, Chet and Mem.
The first letter in the Hebrew word for Compassion is Reysh. Reysh is pictured as a Person, or more accurately the Head of a Person. It can be a picture of The Supreme – The First – The Most Important – The Top – the Master – the Leader. It is a picture of the Prince.
The question is, of what is he the Head or Prince? Are we talking about the Prince of Heaven, or the Prince of the Power of the Air, the illegitimate ruler of this world?
Private – To Separate – To Protect – Place of Protection
To be cut off – Grace – Favor – A place of Refuge
A Protected Garden – Quiet Place – Silent and Still
in Security – Fence – Inner Room
The second letter in the Hebrew word for Compassion is Chet. Chet is pictured as a fenced or walled garden or inner room. It means Private – To Separate – To Protect – Place of Protection – To be cut off – Grace – Favor – A place of Refuge – A Protected Garden – Quiet Place – A secure Sanctuary.
Liquid – Mighty Waters like the Ocean
Massive as the waves of the Sea
Chaotic and Destructive like a Tsunami
Water coming down like a Stream Rain Water
that make the Desert Bloom
The Word of God that brings Life
Living Water – Waters
The third letter in the Hebrew for Compassion is Mem. Mem is pictured as Liquid and is most often associated with Water, as the Mighty Waters of the Ocean – Massive as the waves of the Sea, Water that is Chaotic and Destructive like a Tsunami, or it can be the Water coming down like a stream, the gentle life-giving Rain Water that makes the Desert Bloom. The Word is also in view as the rain that brings life that come down from heaven. So it could also be a picture of the Living Water.
Prince of Chaos
There is no mystery as to the meaning of the word composed of Mem Resh. The Reysh is the Prince. Mem in this context means confusion, chaos, deceit and death.
Reysh – Mem is the dark prince of the power of the air who brings nothing, only lies and death to those that serve and follow him. The picture of Compassion is the picture of the ideal, it is the Big Picture. The Big Picture is simply this: in the natural and without divine intervention, Man is on a pathway that leads to death and destruction. He is in the power and shares the destiny of the Prince that he follows, the Prince of Chaos and Confusion. The dark prince of Hell.
This simple Picture Truth is amplified by the Hebrew word for Deceit or Deceiver. The Hebrew word for Deceiver is Reysh Mem the same two letters that book-end the Hebrew word for Compassion. One more letter is added to make clear the true identity of the great Deceiver, and that is the letter Hey. The letter Hey is the picture of beholding or revealing.
Reysh Mem Hey
Prince of Chaos Reveals Lies
So the Great Deceiver is pictured as Reysh the Prince of Mem Chaos and Confusion that Hey Reveals Lies.
