Hebrew Word Study – Darkness – Part II

(50 Ratings)


Part 2

Is there a way to escape the Darkness?

The answer is in the Scriptures and amazing as it might sound the answer is also in the number meaning of the three-letter Hebrew word we translate into English as Darkness.

In Matthew 4:16 we read these hopeful words.

The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.

God has provided a way out of the darkness.  There is a way to escape that is revealed in the three numbers Chet 8, Sheen 300 and Kaf 20.

Examine with me the three numbers found in the Hebrew Word Darkness.

8  Chet

Eternity – New Creation – First in new series
New Birth – Super Abundance – Follows Seven
And is the first in a new series 
New Beginning

The first number in the word Darkness is Chet, the number 8.

The number 8 is the number of the name of Jesus as calculated in the Greek language.   Eight is the number in Scripture that means New Birth, New Life and Eternity.

300  Sheen

A Divinely Appointed Period of Time – Election
Number Connected to the “Children of Promise”
Supernatural Victory Over Enemies Including Death
 Number connected with
The Death, Burial, and Resurrection of Messiah.
Signifies final Blood Sacrifice
Made by the Perfect Lamb of God.


The second number in the word Darkness is Sheen , the number 300. 

Three is a sacred number that means Divine Perfection. 

The number 30 is the number that signifies a Blood Sacrifice.

The number 300  is the number that amplifies the meaning of 3 to include a supernatural victory over death. 

The first time the number is used in Scripture is in reference to Enoch who lived 300 years after the birth of his son Methuselah.  Enoch did not die but was translated into heaven.  The number 300 is connected with Victory of Death.

Just before Jesus was crucified, Mary of Bethany anointed him with expensive ointment. 

Judas Iscariot and some of the other disciples objected, but Jesus rebuked them and told them that she was anointing Him for his burial and that wherever the Gospel was preached in the future that this story would be told. 

The anointing of Yeshua with the precious ointment took place 2 days before Jesus was crucified, two days before Passover in the year 32 AD.

We are told in the Gospel of John the value of the ointment.  The amount was 300 pence.

John 12:5

Why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor?


Matthew 26:8 

Verily I say unto you, Wheresoever this gospel shall be preached in the whole world, there shall also this, that this woman hath done, be told for a memorial of her.


Just as Jesus predicted this story is told where ever the Gospel is preached even to this day. 

Why you may wonder?

The answer is because Yeshua ordained it to be so in order that the number 300  would be forever linked to the glad tidings of the Gospel. 

And what is the Gospel in a nutshell?

The Gospel according to the Apostle Paul as recorded in and is a reminder of the death, burial, and resurrection of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach .

1 Corinthians 15:1-4

Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that  Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buriedAnd that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:


20    Kaf

Concentrated meaning of
Ordinal Perfection (2 x 10)
Expectancy – Redemption


The last letter in the three letter word Darkness is  Kaf. 
Kaf   is the the number 20. Twenty   is the number of Redemption.

When we compile all the numbers what message do we see?

What do the three numbers 8, 300 and 20 tell us? 

Amazingly the numbers in the word Darkness disclose the Key to escaping the prison and bondage of Darkness. 

God literally arms us with the information we need so that we might both be delivered from and never return to the prison of Darkness.

The three numbers eight, three-hundred and twenty tell us? 

These three numbers declare New Birth and the promise of Eternal Life.  They reveal that there is a supernatural victory over death and darkness accomplished by the blood sacrifice made by the perfect lamb of God.

Yeshua had a lot to say about darkness. 

It is my prayer that you believe the words of Yeshua Ha-Mashiach and follow him all the remaining days of your life.

John 8:12

Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness,
but shall have the light of life.
