The Meaning of The Emerald in The Wall of The Heavenly Jerusalem


The emerald belongs to the mineral class of the silicates and is a variety of the beryl. Its chemical formula is Al2Be3[Si6O18]. Its Moh hardness is 7.5 to 8.  

Origin of the word: The name emerald is derived from the Greek - smaragdos - ΣΜΑΡΑΓΔΟΣ - meaning green stone. In Hebrew it bears the designation. Barequet -ברקת‭ ‬ -‭ ‬in the sense of flash.

The word root of barequet is.
barak - ברק‭ ‬ and means:‭  

  1. flashing, lightning, lightning-like;
  2. then also gleam or glow;
  3. and moreover, it can be "a flashing sword."


The word barak is derived from the word root "barak" and means:
  1. to light up,
  2. illuminate,
  3. to make brighter (by a flash of lightning).

The Hebrew word for emerald is mentioned three times in the Tanakh, the Old Testament, and the Greek word emeraldos is mentioned once in the New Testament. Now, when in a literary work a word occurs only once, the experts speak of a hapax legomenon, that is, "(only) once said". And as we, the authors, have discovered, all hapax legomena point to the end times.  

The lightning flash of this gemstone points to the Messiah who, at the end of days, which is the end time in which we live, will from time to time, and now again figuratively, send a thunderstorm over the earth to briefly allow the truth to shine forth. Because the stone is transparent, it indicates that Jesus is not only speaking from heaven, but many of these things can be clearly seen by us from His Word, the Bible.

We all know the saying: as if struck by a bolt ... and then it goes like a train. The emerald wants to do something similar. Its flashing suddenly illuminates our life, as in the same way in the life of Abraham, to whom in Ur - rising - light had illuminated and he thereupon left the city in the direction of Canaan. But lightning can do even more. With its impact, it can enrich the soil with nitrogen and stimulate plant growth. Something similar, in turn, can happen on a spiritual level. May many more lightning bolts promote our spiritual growth. Now we learn from the Hebrew word root that the emerald also acts like a flashing sword. We know the weapon quite well as a metaphor for the Word of God. Therefore, let us use the emerald daily, so that its wonderful brilliance may be seen by all and its lightning may strike the hearts of men.   

Prophetically, the emerald points to a new beginning by painting spring before our eyes through its green to blue color. If we observe the wheat in spring, which shoots up like grass, then we can see it, the initially blue shimmering green. The phase of spring recalls the completion of the third day of creation. On that day, God had caused grass and herbs to spring forth and fruit trees to grow. God had provided for food in abundance.
