Raw Power of Words

Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.  Proverbs 18:21

All the major events of creation and history were uttered forth with the raw power of the words. 

By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth. Psalm 33:6 

God imparts light as a tool of communication, throughout His creation, especially to you.  Mankind is unique in that you have the ability to communicate, in the likeness of the Creator, for everything is made up of words.   With this power comes tremendous responsibility.

With our voices we can praise God, transform the thoughts of others, shatter a glass, inspire people, induce healing, and escape the realities of this world by listening to melodious songs.

Not only do the scriptures declare we are made out of words, but our very DNA is a four-letter alphabet.  Our DNA is estimated to fill one thousand 500-page books. Science calls it "the book of life." How did the Bible know thousands of years before modern science? 

Noah's Ark

Increasingly, we live in a day much like the days of Noah.  From within the ancient script of the bible we how pivotal language has been from the beginning when Adam and Eve were beguiled by the Serpent.  Between the expulsion and the Flood man increased in wickedness.

Now the earth had become corrupt before God; and the earth had been filled with Hamas (lawlessness).  And God saw the earth, and behold it was corrupted, for all flesh had corrupted its way upon the earth. Genesis 6:1

The numerical value of hamas is the same as waters of Noah and also gehinnom (hell).

According of Isaiah 24:5 alluded to a three-fold corruption: 

  1. Transgressing the teachings of God,
  2. Changing the ordinances-the norms of civilization,
  3. Overturning the covenant of the world-the norms imposed by nature without which man cannot survive. 

You will oftentimes notice when Scripture refers to language it will follow it with, go in peace.  The numerical equivalent or gematria of the ark covering equals sukah or temporary dwelling which also has the gematria of shalom or peace. 

When you unite the Tetragrammatron Name of God and the God as Ruler into One it effectuates or renews creation and the aspect of God denoting watchfulness and providence, yielding peace, also describing the covering for the ark.  The whole dimensions of the ark in gematria equal the Tetragrammatron and the God as Ruler as One. 

October 15, 1999 issue of The Jerusalem Post in a feature written by Shlomo Riskin:

In the name of the Baal Shem Tov (founder of Hassidism), we find an amazing insight into the nature of Noah's teva by examining its measurements: the length was 300 cubits, the breadth 50 cubits, and the height 30 cubits. When you take the letters formed by the numerical value of each of these we get shin (300), nun (50), lamed (30), spelling the word lshn, (or lashon) which means "language."


God commands Moses to go, " I will be with thy mouth, and teach thee what thou shalt say.:  The root 'to teach you' is to shoot an arrow.  It is interpreted as My word will go to your mouth like an arrow.

The root of the expression is to beget.  The expression thus means:  I will beget you; you will be transformed into a new creature.

Through amplified sound water droplets take on intricate patterns in the microsopic and can expand outward is it any wonder that at the command of God and Moses lifting his staff that the Red Sea split? 

 Physics of Sound

It is profound when you take the time to ponder that your intent and subsequent words can influence the heart of God, matter, and the lives of your friends and family.  How is this so? 

When you sing or speak you amplify the thoughts within your mind and heart. Your words have electromagnetic frequency as light.  That is why healing words and abusive words have such raw power, as white radiance or dark radiance.   Your voice can actually ripple up through the barriers of the heavens to reach the Throne of God Himself. How can your words do that?

Both sound and light are different forms of energy.

Sound in air is the transfer of periodic vibrations between two adjacent colliding atoms or molecules.

Basically, this is a collision of atomic particles bumping into their neighbors who pass along the vibrations.

When you speak the sound, radial pulsation or oscillation, expanding away from the mouth and nose in all directions, traveling at 768 miles per hour at sea level!  While speaking your oscillation expands and contracts.  The pulsations are created by the folds in your vocal cords in the larynx.

Waves of Sound


When we think of sound waves they are really just enigmatic rhythmic pulsating collisions of particles, going forth.  Sound waves can be charted on a graph but their real power is built into surround-sound laser beams that ripple though air, space and time.  Your voice has high pressure and low pressure areas around the 'sound event' much like high and low pressure creating our weather systems.  In our voice these are called compressions and rarefactions.  When we a graph of sound waves is a mathematical representation of sound in graph form.  Much like the expanding universe, when sound travels through air every atom and molecule in the path of the expands, going forth, passing on the sound vibrations to their neighbor.  This sets of a chain reaction of movement moving outward.  This is the nature of sound, ever expanding and influencing.  

When you read you begin with A, B, C when you speak or sing you begin with Do, Re, Me.  The 'oo' sound is a simple single frequency tone and it will pass along its vibration to each atom or particle with which it comes in contact.  On the other hand the 'ee' sound is complex with rich harmonic varying frequencies.  As the 'ee' goes forth it carries with its subtle complexities.

To better visualize how a single atom can carry such complex periodic motions, imagine holding an apple and moving it slowly back and forth. (Let’s say that the apple represents an atom in the air surrounding your larynx).  Next imagine quickly wobbling the apple as it moves slowly back and forth. The apple/atom is now vibrating in two different ways simultaneously. Now imagine that same principle extended until the apple/atom is moving in a hundred different ways simultaneously.  (Not easy to imagine, but I think the point is made).

This is how atoms and molecules carry all the vibrations and uniqueness of a voice, or of any sound. And when an atom bumps into its nearest neighbor all of those different vibrations are transferred to the neighboring atoms. The human voice, whether in speech or singing, is a good example of a complex sound source that contains many frequencies. What begins in the larynx as a small high pressure (fairly monotone) spherical pearl of sound energy, rapidly expands into the mouth and sinus cavities where complex nuances are added by the tongue, lips and resonance of the sinus spaces, adding to the complexity of the vibrations and forming a given word or sound.  GMI

 If I were to hearken back to creation, it is my understanding of Intelligent Design that the Creator thought about the act of creation, not merely uttering and it came to be with no fore-thought.  I can assume this as everything we do  or say originates as a thought.  Sound is the amplified thought process.


The Sound-Light Bubble

From thought we move into the action of speech which emerges from our heart and mind to the mouth and nose ushering forth with atoms and molecules vibrating in breathtaking symphonic unison.  Your voice is so unique that one single atom can capture the complexities of your individual voice.  Telephone companies are aware of this fact. I had opportunity to talk with a company representative in the very early regarding voicemail recordings.  The telephone representative with whom I spoke said that she would not every, under any circumstance allow her voice to be recorded.  She knew the power of her voice and the identification possibilities from which she created her own privacy protection plan. Since that initial conversation I have reflected over the years who that worked out for her in a day and age when our unique voice prints are recording when transacting any business. 
Sound, in Quantum Physics, is described exhibiting holographic principles which includes that sound is ever expanding with each particle rippling containing all the vibrational data of the sound source, your personal dossier, if you will.


There are those who ascribe that sound goes forth in a bubble and that before it goes forth it surrounds your head and possibly your whole body.  The surface of the bubble conveying harmonic content, timre and tonal quality.

As we have been discovering sound, communication, energy include light.  There is a special relationship between sound and light that we can now explore.  This will shine some light on how your voice penetrates the barriers of heaven reaching the Throne of God. 

Nature of Light

As we have seen visible light is electromagnetism within a range of frequencies.  Light is oftentimes described in Ångströms which is the distance moved by light as it pulsates and what we call wave length.  

We see two opposing views of the nature of light one holding to the spherical nature of light and the other maintaining a linear position.

When it comes to the power of our speech the following is critical to understand:

  • Targeted laser light generates coherent light in which all vibrations of the magnetic energy are aligned with each other.  One could imagine it as a ray of light.
  • Natural light is termed incoherent light or natural light because its vibrations and randomly generated by the light source.

 Electromagnetism eludes science.  What is known is that it vibrates.  Light is created when static magnetism becomes modulated magnetism.  All atoms are surrounded by a magnetic force field.  When two atoms collide there is a vibration transfer between the two that results in light.  It is a Law of Nature, that when collisions between atoms and molecules occur, light is generated, known as electromagnetic radiation.

Sound needs a medium to go forth while light can go forth through any medium or barrier.

The frequency of light created by atoms as they bump into each other is a function of the temperature of the individual and collective vibration of atoms. Light created by atomic encounters in which the temperatures are low to create visible light will create infrared light.  Have you ever experienced a gentle touch tingle?  Low energy generates kinetic (moving) sparks near the microwave level.  When temperature is high X-rays and Gamma ray radiation is created according to theory.  The temperature of an object determines the wavelength of radiation it emits. 

Rub your hands vigorously together and then place them over your closed eyes. You will feel warmth. The molecules that form the skin of your left hand slipped past the molecules that form the skin of your right hand. To be more accurate, the magnetic shells surrounding those molecules slipped past each other. The result is heat. GMI

When you speak or sing trillions of atoms collide and carry your voice through the air while producing infrared heat.  The warmth of your voice, vacillating as you articulate your words, acts as a scribe using a fountain of modulated infrared light which goes forth at 186,000 miles per second!  

Amazingly, while the acoustic energy of your voice may drop off due to God’s Laws of Nature which incorporate physics, but your infrared light print travels unhampered through matter, time, and space.  One theory states that it will travel forever into the ethereal heavens.

And as you communicate or sing the very stars in heaven, radiate their visible and invisible melodious song to you, upon the whole earth, and into the eternal expanses of Infinity.

When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?  Job 38:7

The heavens declare the Glory of God.  Psalm 19:2

Science has a branch of astronomy known as asteroseismology where scientists listen to the cosmos of stars.  They are searching deep into the heart of stars with networks such as SONG (Stellar Oscillations Network Group) to capture the stars inner-most secrets and as cartographers of old, map the heavens to unlock the secrets of the origins of the heavenly abode.

Science will launch the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) in 2019 to listen to the song of the star in space using infrared technology in hope that through their songs the secrets of the origins of creation will be revealed.  They are drawn to see how many planetary systems might be hospitable to life with have enough water to have oceans but have a particular affinity to explore the depths of dark matter or dark energy.  Will the stars reveal their mysteries? 

Healing Words


You have experienced people whose words resonate with you and people with whom their words are like fingernails upon a chalkboard, sending shivers down your back.

There is a science to this.  We have learned that your voice creates infrared light and each cell vibrates within the infrared spectrum of light.  These vibrations at the cellular level create a cell-to-cell communication system.  When your voice goes forth you are engaging in the language of ‘cell talk’ internally, but also externally to anyone within proximity to your voice. 

Science has tools for seeing invisible sound as in the above work of Dr. Emoto  and the emerging work of CymaScope in the science of cymatics

Whenever sound encounters a membrane, a cymatic pattern is imprinted on the membrane’s surface. Usually invisible to the unaided eye, such patterns can be rendered visible under special lighting conditions to 'dust' the membrane with light. The cymatic principle occurs at all scales, even in the microscopic realm.  Every cell in your body receives a cymatic pattern when you speak or hear communication. If you were to slice horizontally into the beam and look at the cross section it would appear to contain geometric patterns that contain a type of cymaglyphic information analogous to hieroglyphs. In other words, these sound structures carry information as real and meaningful as words do in human language. 

Research with dolphins using cymatoscope has revealed information about how dolphins communicate and “see” with sound. 


Amazing!  That our ear bones are the same size as the day we were born and that by 10 years of age we have heard the most sounds that we will ever hear in our lives! 

Cilia: Our Body's Tuning Fork

Not only our ears but our bodies respond to sound and many sounds trigger the boy to heal.  For instance our body contains cilia.  It is thought that cells might well have antenna-like structures that respond to the electromagnetism and specific frequencies of sound.  They are like tuning forks that have particular resonant frequency and are excited only at that particular frequency.

Inner Sanctum of Your Body

 I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: marvelous are thy works; and that my soul knows right well. Psalm 139:14

On occasion illness enters into your body.  In Hebrew, the word for sickness means hollow or empty space.  It also has the alternative meaning of secular or profane.  Sickness is a state in which you becomes void of light and spiritual contentment. This manifests in your physical health.  It also is symbolic of one who is slain in battle.  The most extreme case is the corpse whose non-corporeal soul has fled its physical abode to its spiritual home.

When you are ill your cells go into a state of repose or sleep, where they are not replicating.  Cells that are in this deep sleep condition can exist in that state for very long periods.

This throws the body out of balance creating your illness.  In the Hebrew language this is also true where life and wisdom counterbalance sin and materialism. It goes even deeper.  The Hebrew root for to heal is the same as physician, doctor, healer and is also found in the Hebrew word for resplendent, the shining light resulting from harmony and balance.  This root can be further analyzed and includes your mouth or opening and light.  When your spiritual life is balanced it creates and opening for light, resulting in health.

The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.    Psalm 119:30

It is as if when you speak the words of God you are in fact drawing down and enveloped by and imbued with Godly Light that descends when His will is fulfilled on earth. If you sincerely wants to be healed, fill your mouth with Godly light.

Balance is also critical for our soul.  In Hebrew the word shakal means to balance and has the numerical value of soul.

In medical literature this is known as the G-0 phase. 

To awaken cells to prepare for replication (G-1) suggests either time or nutrition is needed to spark cells to life.  Then stimulation through sound-energy-light ‘charges’ the cell.  Sound gently vibrates the cell membrane arousing it to life.

Looking even deeper than the cellular level we discover that our blood is a delicate lattice of electromagnetic frequencies that harmonize together into biological matter which then become the various organs and tissues within our body.  Just like living in a community all the players of our body must live in perfect harmony.  With illness comes an imbalance in our body which begins to generate harmful foreign vibrations.

 Reach the Heavens

Quietly ponder for a few moments on how incredible it is that every detail of sound and light unites, creating a communication system that goes down to our atom's, and yet has the ability to skyrocket through the barriers of the heavens, to reach the Throne of God.  He listens to each word that you say! And that my friends is truly marvelous!
