It’s All in the Numbers : Bible Gematria and the year 2017

“For most people life is plain, even flat at times. The great mountain peaks of existence are either far behind us or on the distant horizon. Occasionally, with a rush of excitement, we remember the intoxicating heights of our first date, the birth of a child, or our rebirth in Jesus. For me, discovering gematria was an event of that magnitude, an Everest in importance.” ( James Harrison ). Personally, I can so relate to his experience. The discovery of gematria produced in me an incredible degree of awe and confidence in the reality of the Divine inspiration of the Holy Scriptures!

All creation, from the largest to the smallest, can always be reduced to numbers. Pythagoras, the father of mathematics, discovered a great truth when he said, “Numbers are the language of the universe.” In the writings of the ancient philosophers there is a common agreement that the purpose of number is for investigation of the universe. From the atom to the galaxy in the heavens, the same unchanging laws apply – the laws of arithmetic, the language of number. Just as the hand of God spread the vast expanse of the heavens by number, so too His written word can be reduced to number; and those who have tried it have stood in awe of the intricacy and beauty of the design.

The secrets locked up in the Number Code of the Bible are there for all to behold; and down through the centuries many have unlocked those secrets and revealed to us the unspeakable beauty of the intended design. But it was not until the advent of the computer that we are able to truly search the depths of this amazing science, and find those gems that have been hidden in plain sight for thousands of years.

The practice of gematria is as old as man. It is simply the number substitution for the letters of the alphabet. It is specifically an integral part of the two languages in which the original texts of the Bible were written – Hebrew and Greek. Gematria among the Greeks was common use at the time of the writing of the New Testament. A copy of one of these early manuscripts ( papyri ), exists today in Dublin, Ireland in the Chester Beauty Collection. it is the earliest known copy of the book of Revelation extant. It is dated somewhere between 200 and 300 a.d. This manuscript uses Gematria for every number in the book of Revelation.

Certain constants occupy precise balancing points in the cosmos of number, like habitable planets sprinkled throughout the galaxy at just the right distances from their suns. Three of the most notable mathematical constants are pi ( 3.14159…); phi ( 1.61803… ); and e or Euler’s number ( 2.71828…).

Many are astounded when they discover that these three critical mathematical constants are contained or encoded in the Biblical text :

Possible correlations between the gematria of the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Bible (“Bible gematria” ) and the Jewish year 5778 :

(1) “5778 on the Hebrew Calendar” ( Bible Gematria ) > @41:28 – 44:30 mins. into the video we discover ; “The first occurrence of 427 in pi is followed by the four digits 5778! There is only one word in the Tanakh which appears 427 times. That word is ( shana ), meaning “year”, which has a gematria value of 355. The year 5778 on the Hebrew calendar commences on 21st September, 2017.

The first occurrence of 355 ( shana ) in pi is surrounded by 300 and 876. ( 300 + 876 = 1176 ). The first occurrence of 2017 in pi is is surrounded by 248 and 928. ( 248 + 928 = 1176). 1176 is the 48th triangular number! John 3:16 gives : 3 X 16 = 48. “Only begotten Son” has a gematria value of 1176!

Euler’s totient function is of major interest in number theory. The totient of the gematria value of “Jesus” ( 888 ) is 288. ( 888 + 288 = 1176 ).”

According to “the 2017-2024 Tribulation Timeline ” theory, the dates spanning Sept.20th – Sept.23rd, 2017 are the key dates marking the intersection of the Jewish years 5777/5778, and mark the commencement of the final 7 years of this age. The ( above ) numbers revealed in pi may very well be confirming the immense importance of the start of Jewish year 5778 on God’s prophetic blueprint.

(2) “5778 : The Sign of Jonas the Prophet” ( Bible Gematria ) @1:15:40 – 1:18:10 mins. we find :

“The first day, “And God said, Let there be light” ; “Let there be light.” – gematria value = 232.

The fourth day, “And God said, Let there be lights.” ; “And God said, Let there be lights.” – gematria value = 666.

666 – 232 = 434.

“And God said” – gematria value = 343.

434 + 343 = 777!

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven.” ( Genesis 1:14 ) ; “in the firmament of the heaven.” – gematria value = 777!

777 adds 7 rows to the 5778 triangle!

5778 +777 = 6555.

In number theory, the totient of 6555 is 3168 which is the gematria of “Lord Jesus Christ”!

These final “7 rows” just may be representative of the final 7 years of this age starting on (5)”777″/”5778″. Again, these calculations are simply possible correlations; they are speculative in nature and are brought to your attention “in the case of actual emergency” ( that is, in case they in fact turn out to be actual confirmations ).

(3) “5778 : The Day of the Lord is Near” ( Bible Gematria )

@10:05 – 11:00 mins. we find :

Melchizedek is seen as a type of Christ, about which the evidence is compelling ; Melchizedek was the king of Salem ( Jerusalem ) ; (“Salem”) has a gematria value of 370 ; The first occurrence of 370 in pi begins from position 555 ; the word “Christ” ( Messiah ) appears 555 times in the Bible ( KJV )!

@12:30 – 14:50 mins. we find :

The gematria value of ( “Salem” ) is 370 ; ( “Israel” ) has a gematria value of 541 : The first conjunction of the digits 541 in pi, phi, and e occurs at index position 370!

Melchizedek was the King of Salem ; (“King of Salem”) has a gematria value of 460 ; The three digits at index position 460 in pi, phi, and e are 919 ; (“Melchizedek”) has a gematria value of 919! ; The first 460 digits of pi sum to 2020 ; (“after the order of Melchizedek”) – Hebrews 5:6, has a gematria value of 2020! ……. Could the number “2020” be denoting the year 2020 on the Gregorian calendar? Could it be pointing to a possible Rapture event? … Only time will tell.

@29:48 – 30:45 mins. we find :

Beginning from position 14,632 in pi is the fourth occurrence of 5778 ; Surprisingly, it’s first three occurrences all appear within the first 1,000 digits! first position = 632; second position = 947; third position = 953 ; 632 + 947 + 953 = 2532.

In both the golden ratio and the transcendental number e, the first 552 digits sum to 2532! Pi, the golden ratio and e are constants in our universe ; Another is the speed of light through a vacuum … 299,792,458 m/s ; The first occurrence of 299792458 in pi is followed by 552! …. and yet there remains those who declare, “there is no God” … are you serious?!

(4) “Two Calves Born with the Number Seven on Their Faces”

Some people don’t believe that God has a sense of humor ; I am not among that number. The following scenario just may serve as “case in point.”

In an articled entitled, “Calf with 7 on it’s head named for Steelers’ Ben Roethlisberger”, they write ( in reference to the black calf pictured above ) : “There’s a new No. 7 in western Pennsylvania. The folks at Vale Wood Farms have named a calf Baby Ben after the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback because the cow has a marking that looks like a No.7 on it’s head…

“I see the big ‘7’ on the forehead. I’ve never seen a cow like that, “said Brad Wing, the Steelers punter. “That could be a sign from above”, echoing fans who think the number means the team will win a seventh Super Bowl. “That’s not Photoshopped, is it?” Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey asked.”I think Ben needs to buy this.” “My college number was seven. Could be my cow,” said Steelers defensive end Stephon Tuitt. The farm plans to display the calf when it opens it’s pumpkin patch for business next month.”

Well, if these calves are truly a sign from God, that’s one way to get America’s attention, through her favorite sport – the N.F.L. Granted, the sign would be very difficult to decipher without it being pointed out to them. Although many did get a healthy laugh over the scenario, there were others who were very serious about contemplating it as a genuine sign from God. As always, these issues must be decided by each individual as they seek the Lord for discernment.

Could it be God’s warning to America that the final 7 years of this age is rapidly approaching? In light of the 2017-2024 Tribulation Timeline theory, I believe it is very possible , especially when a person considers the timing of the births of the calves from a Biblical perspective.

The black calf (“Baby Ben”), the firstborn, was birthed on Saturday September 20, 2014. Not only was he born on a Sabbath day, but it was the final Sabbath day of the year, based on the Hebrew calendar. The new year began on Rosh Hashana, which fell on September 25, 2014.

“Amazingly, a second calf was born with the number seven plastered to his face five days after the first calf, which means he was born on precisely the first day of the Hebrew year. So between the two of them they marked the Sabbath day of the year, the final Sabbath of the year, and the first day of the new year!”

Now onto the correlation between the births of the two calves and the two signs that marked the birth of the 2017 – 2014 Tribulation Timeline theory, namely, the Great Pyramid and the Revelation 12 Sign.

Just as the first calf was born on a September 20th ( 2014), the Sign of the Great Pyramid appeared on a September 20th ( exactly 3 Gregorian years later in 2017). On the very eve of the Great Pyramid Sign, the first day of Rosh Hashana began. The only distinction here lies in the fact that September 20th, 2014, ( the date of the birth of the calf ) did not land on the first day of Rosh Hashanah ( also known as Yom Teruah, and the Feast of Trumpets ).

Incredibly, however, the second calf was born precisely five days after the first on September 25, 2014, which marked the first day of Rosh Hashanah! So, just as two calves were used to pinpoint the two-day Feast of Trumpets in 2014, the two signs of the Great Pyramid and the Rev.12 Sign were used in 2017! But even more than that, considering the previous facts, is it not logical to say that the sign of the two calves were essentially pointing to the Feast of Trumpets in 2017? …. the decision is yours.

Psalm 90:12, “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts to wisdom.”
