ALPHA-GEMATRIA

The Bible teaches that God spoke creation into being. This ancient text (the most read document in human history) was originally revealed to the Jews, who themselves have an ancient tradition that God created the universe through the permutation of the 22 divine letters of the Hebrew alphabet. For example, we read the following in the 2,000 year old Jewish work called the Sefir Yetzirah:

"The foundations are the twenty-two letters; He hath formed, weighed, transmuted, composed, and created with these twenty-two letters every living thing"


The Biblical canon is divided into two major sections: The Old Testament and the New Testament. Remarkably, each of these two divisions were revealed in ancient alphanumeric languages. That is, Biblical Hebrew (the primary language of the Old Testament) has the property whereby each letter in its alphabet has a distinct numerical value. Likewise, Biblical Greek (the primary language of the New Testament) has the same alphanumeric property as Biblical Hebrew. Thus, by simply adding up the letter values within a given Hebrew/Greek word in the Bible, the Biblical Hebrew/Greek words have distinct numerical values that are essentially set in stone.

It is a known fact that this alphanumeric property of Biblical Hebrew/Greek is an ancient system of both Hebrew and Greek (i.e. it is not some modern invention). There are two primary methods of assigning numerical values to the letters of the Hebrew/Greek alphabets: The Standard method and the Ordinal method.

Here are the Standard values of the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet:

Here are the Ordinal values of the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet:


I submit to you that the Old Testament was originally revealed in Hebrew because it is the divine alphabet of God (this is clearly demonstrated in the articles listed in this site). However, the New Testament was originally revealed in Greek because Greek was the most widely spoken language in the first century, which allowed for the New Testament message to spread among the gentiles. The fact that both of the major divisions of the Bible were revealed in ancient alphanumeric languages is a hint in itself of the mathematical codes that I highlight throughout my articles. Notice also that the numerical identity of the Hebrew alphabet (22) also hints at the two fundamental languages of the Bible (Hebrew/Greek) and the two fundamental systems of Biblical Numerics (the Standard/Ordinal systems).




The 22nd geometric Triangle (T22) is literally a visual representation of the Hebrew alphabet (i.e. the Ordinal sum of the 22 letter values). The Old Testament is based on the alphanumeric Hebrew alphabet and the New Testament is based on the alphanumeric Greek alphabet. I will now demonstrate that not only is the Greek Ordinal signature of Jesus Christ encoded in the Prime structure of the Hebrew alphabet, its Triangular representation is encoded with the Ordinal Greek weight of "Jesus" (87) and the Ordinal Greek weight of "Christ" (118). Further, I was able to uncover this natural semantic division between Jesus/Christ (87/118) within T22 through the SIMILAR logic of three joined Triangles (with the natural Hexagon within T22 playing a key role in both instances):

Prime Factorization sum of 22 Standard Hebrew letter values:

1 = 1
2 = 2
3 = 3
4 = 2 × 2
5 = 5
6 = 2 × 3
7 = 7
8 = 2 × 2 × 2
9 = 3 × 3
10 = 2 × 5
20 = 2 × 2 × 5
30 = 2 × 3 × 5
40 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 5
50 = 2 × 5 × 5
60 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5
70 = 2 × 5 × 7
80 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 5
90 = 2 × 3 × 3 × 5
100 = 2 × 2 × 5 × 5
200 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 5
300 = 2 × 2 × 3 × 5 × 5
400 = 2 × 2 × 2 × 2 × 5 × 5

Total sum = 205

Ordinal Greek "JESUS CHRIST" = 205

Ordinal sum of 22 Hebrew letters = T22

The natural Hexagon within T22 accomodates three joined Triangles within its interior, which sections off precisely 87 counters (the blue counters)

The outline of the three joined Triangles accommodated by T22, along with the remaining border counters (i.e. all the red counters combined), yields precisely 118 total counters

Ordinal Greek "JESUS" = 87

9 + 7 + 18 + 15 + 20 + 18 = 87

Ordinal Greek "CHRIST" = 118

22 + 17 + 9 + 18 + 19 + 15 + 18 = 118

87 + 118 = 205

Jesus Christ is the Creator



DIAMOND GEOMETRY

The Ordinal sum of the 22 Hebrew letters also forms the 7th Hexagram (note that the Hexagram itself is traditionally associated with the Jewish people and is even found on the modern flag of the reborn nation Israel). I have formulated a new Star series that is derived from the more familiar series of Hexagrams, which I call "Diamond Frame Stars":

DIAMOND FRAME STARS = 6n^2 + 10n+5

The Diamond Frame Stars are revealed by simply removing the Diamond outline of the nth Hexagram (keep in mind that every Hexagram has a unique Diamond outline sum). What is the Diamond Frame Star derived from the 7th Hexagram, you ask? I present to you "The Diamond Hebrew Star Of Jesus Christ":

THE DIAMOND HEBREW STAR OF JESUS CHRIST

The Ordinal sum of the 22 Hebrew letters = T22 = 253

The 7th Hexagram = 253 counters

The sum of this Hexagram with the Diamond outline counters removed = 205

Ordinal Greek "JESUS CHRIST" = 205

Prime Factorization sum of 22 Standard Hebrew letter values = 205

Numbers 24:17
"I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a STAR (48) out of Jacob"

Standard Hebrew "STAR" = 48

The 7th Hexagram is the ONLY Hexagram with a Diamond outline of 48 counters

The Ordinal Hebrew sum of the quoted Messianic passage from Numbers 24:17 = 363
42 + 19 + 43 + 68 + 19 + 47 + 35 + 30 + 60 = 363

Standard Hebrew "CHRIST" (HaMashiac) = 363

Jesus Christ is the Messiah


I showed how the Prime Factorization sum of the Hebrew alphabet yields the Ordinal Greek signature of Jesus Christ (205) and how the Ordinal numerical weight of the Hebrew alphabet = The 7th Hexagram, which also yields the Ordinal Greek signature of Jesus Christ. I will now demonstrate, through the SAME Diamond Star logic, how the 112th Hexagram yields a Diamond outline sum of 888 counters (where Standard Hebrew "Yahweh Elohim" = 112 and Standard Greek "Jesus" = 888):

THE DIAMOND STAR OF YAHWEH ELOHIM

The 112th Hexagram yields a Diamond outline of 888 counters

Standard Hebrew "YAHWEH ELOHIM" = 112
Standard Greek "JESUS" = 888

CONCLUSION:
The same Diamond Star logic that unites the Ordinal numerical weight of the Hebrew alphabet with the Ordinal Greek signature of Jesus Christ ALSO unites the Standard Hebrew signature of the central Hebrew title of God (YAHWEH ELOHIM) with the Standard Greek signature of Jesus.



SELF-REFERENCING GEOMETRY

The science of Biblical Numerics entails a coded system of self-authenticating geometry. I will now present a powerful array of converging finds I have uncovered, which demonstrates this phenomenon in a miraculous way. The Standard Hebrew value of "YAHWEH ELOHIM" (i.e. the central Hebrew Old Testament name of God) = 112. I found that there is only ONE way to represent 112 counters as a Trapezium (the trivial form being merely a line of 112 counters):

THE TRAPEZIUM (112)

"YAHWEH ELOHIM" (SH) = 112

This is the ONLY way to represent 112 counters as a Trapezium


I wondered what would happen if I unfolded this EXCLUSIVE Trapezium of 112 to form a symmetric Hexagonal figure. Unbelievably, this reveals the Ordinal Greek numerical signature of Jesus Christ:

THE NAME (205)

The 112 Trapezium unfolds into a mirror symmetry of 205 total counters

"JESUS CHRIST" (OG) = 205


The mirrored Prime Factors of Genesis 1:1 (the opening verse of the Bible) = 37 and 73 and represent the foundational Primes of Biblical Numerics. Thus, not only do we have a perfect union here between "Yahweh Elohim" and "Jesus Christ", we have a perfect union with Star 73:

THE STAR (73)

The 205 figure accommodates a Star of 73 counters and 37 Hexagonal counters

Isaiah 48:12

"I AM HE" (OH) = 37
"I AM HE" (SH) = 73

Genesis 1:1 (SH) = 37 * 73


The Standard value of Genesis 1:1 (2701) = The 73rd Triangle, which itself accommodates the 37th Triangle (as an Inverted Triangle). The 205 figure I showed logically forms a specific square (taking a Diamond shape) when paired with two equal Triangles. Incredibly, the square that is formed by the 205 figure is the precise square that is accommodated by the 37th Triangle:

THE TRIANGLE (T37)

The 205 figure forms the precise square (i.e. the Diamond figure) that is accommodated by T37

Genesis 1:1 (SH) = 2701 = T73

T73 accommodates T37


The EXCLUSIVE Trapezium of 112 not only unfolds to reveal the numerical signature of Jesus Christ (205), I found that it forms a logical Hexagonal series that I have coined "Compacted Hexagons" and have formulated as 5*n^2 - 6*n + 2 (note how the number of counters in the top and bottom rows always equals the total number of rows in each Hexagon):

THE COMPACTED HEXAGONS

FORMULA: 5*n^2 - 6*n + 2


Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1 (the two key "Creation Verses" of the Hebrew OT/Greek NT) are the two foundational verses of Biblical Numerics. We know that all geometric symmetry is perfectly known, seen and understood by the infinite mind of God. With this in mind, I will now show how the coded mathematics of John 1:1 is tied to this Hexagonal symmetry:

THE COMPACTED HEXAGON OF JOHN 1:1

John 1:1
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God"

Ordinal Greek value of this phrase = 442

Compacted Hexagon = 442


This Compacted Hexagon can only accommodate one specific Hexagon of equal sides, which now reveals the following perfection:

THE HEXAGONAL CODE OF JOHN 1:1

The 442 figure precisely accommodates a Hexagon of 271 counters (with all equal sides of 10), which sections of 171 counters

John 1:1
"In the beginning was the Word"

Ordinal Greek value of this phrase = 171

John 1:1
"And the Word was with God"

Ordinal Greek value of this phrase = 271


John 1:1 consists of three semantic divisions and we see how the Compacted Hexagon of John 1:1 is encoded with its first two semantic divisions. I also found that the third semantic division is encoded as well. In other words, ALL the semantic divisions of John 1:1 are encoded within this miraculous figure:

THE TRIPLE TRIANGLES OF JOHN 1:1

The 271 Hexagon accommodates THREE joined Triangles, which yields 163 counters

John 1:1
"And the Word was God"

Ordinal Greek value of this phrase = 163


The Triune God of scripture brings the universe into being in Genesis 1:1 (i.e. the opening verse of the Bible, which is semantically related to John 1:1). We now have even further perfection, as the Compacted Hexagon of John 1:1 precisely accommodates the Ordinal value of Genesis 1:1 (as three joined Diamond figures):

THE TRIPLE DIAMONDS OF GENESIS 1:1/JOHN 1:1

Genesis 1:1
"In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth"

Ordinal Hebrew value = 298

The value 298 forms three joined Diamond figures (i.e. three joined squares of 10^2)

John 1:1
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God"

Ordinal Greek value of this phrase = 442

The value 442 forms a Compacted Hexagon

This Compacted Hexagon (and ONLY this Compacted Hexagon) precisely accommodates the Triple Diamonds of 298 counters


The Compacted Hexagon of John 1:1 will only accommodate one specific Triangle. Unbelievably, this now reveals a further perfect semantic division within the alphanumeric encoding of John 1:1 (through its first two semantic divisions):

THE SELF-REFERENCING UNION OF JOHN 1:1

The 442 figure accommodates a Triangle of 171 counters (i.e. T18)

John 1:1
"In the beginning was the Word"

Ordinal Greek value = 171

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God"

Ordinal Greek value = 442


We should like to know what specific Triangle will accommodate this miraculous geometric union within John 1:1. What follows is nothing short of miraculous, as it unites all three semantic divisions of John 1:1, as well as the Ordinal signature of Genesis 1:1, with the 37th Triangle:

THE SELF-REFERENCING UNION OF GENESIS 1:1/JOHN 1:1

Genesis 1:1 (SH) = 37 * 73 = T73

T73 accommodates T37

T37 accommodates the John 1:1 union of 442 and 171

The 442 figure is the very same figure that unites all three semantic divisions of John 1:1

The 442 figure is the very same figure that reveals the Ordinal signature of Genesis 1:1 (298)


I showed how the 205 figure is derived from the EXCLUSIVE Trapezoid of 112. We now arrive at the Prime self-referencing signature of the divine encoder:

THE PRIME SIGNATURE (112)

The John 1:1 union of 171 + 442 precisely accommodates the Diamond derived from the 205 figure

"JESUS CHRIST" (OG) = 205

"YAHWEH ELOHIM" (SH) = 112

The 205 figure is derived from the ONLY Trapezium of 112

171 + 442 = The 112th Prime number

YAHWEH ELOHIM = JESUS CHRIST
JESUS CHRIST = YAHWEH ELOHIM

Jesus Christ is God

Jesus Christ created the universe




THE DIVINE ENCODER

I will now demonstrate a powerful PROOF OF GOD that I have uncovered through what I call "Triple Frame Geometry" (or "TFG"). The following convergence of clear geometric encoding reveals the unmistakable identity of the divine encoder, who is the very source of mathematics/geometry.

I did an analysis on the OUTLINE of the 22nd Star and found that a Triple union of this Star reveals an OUTLINE of 754 counters (note the Hebrew alphabetic identity of 22):

THE TRIPLE STAR FRAMES OF JESUS CHRIST (754)

There are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet

"Triple Star Frames" = 12*n*3 - 2

The Triple union of the 22nd Hexagram (with sides of 22) reveals an OUTLINE of 754 counters

"JESUS CHRIST" (SH) = 754


I showed how the Prime Factorization sum of the 22 Standard Hebrew letter values in the Hebrew alphabet yields the Ordinal Greek signature of Jesus Christ (205). Amazingly, the Triple union of Hexagonal wheels that accommodates the Triple Star Frames of 754 yields the Standard sum of the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet (1495). Thus, we now have a perfect geometric union here between the Hebrew alphabet and the Hebrew alphanumeric signature of Jesus Christ:

THE TRIPLE WHEELS OF HEBREW ALPHANUMERICS (1495)

"Triple Hexagonal Wheels" = (12*n+7)*3 - 2

The precise "Triple Hexagonal Wheels" that accommodates the 754 figure (which was formed through the Triple union of the 22nd Star) = 1495 counters

The Standard sum of the 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet = 1495

"JESUS CHRIST" (SH) = 754

The S/O formula of the Hebrew alphabet (1495):

"JESUS" (OH) = 58
"JESUS CHRIST" (OH) = 115
"JESUS CHRIST" (SH) = 754

115 * (754/58) = 1495

The Prime Factorization sum of the 22 Standard letter values in the Hebrew alphabet = 205

"JESUS CHRIST" (OG) = 205


I submitted the following "Triple Frame Geometry" to the Online Encyclopedia Of Integer Sequences (OEIS), which was recently approved:

TRIPLE HEXAGONAL RINGS


This now takes us to the following miraculous convergence between the Ordinal Hebrew/Greek values of Jesus Christ:

THE TRIPLE HEXAGONS OF JESUS CHRIST (115)

The 115th Hexagon (i.e. with sides of 115) yields "Triple Hexagonal Rings" of precisely 2050 counters

"JESUS CHRIST" (OH) = 115
"JESUS CHRIST" (OG) = 205


Genesis 1:1, which is the foundational verse of Biblical Numerics, forms the 73rd Triangle. Therefore, I wondered what would happen if I joined a Triple union of Frames derived from the 73rd Hexagon. What follows is further self-referencing perfection. What's more, I found a powerful mirror code that points to 2368:

THE TRIPLE HEXAGONS OF JESUS CHRIST (73)

Genesis 1:1 (SH) = 37 * 73 = T73

The 73rd Triple Hexagons (joined at sides) = 1150 counters

THE MIRROR CODE (2368):

"Jesus Christ" (OH) = 115
"Jesus Christ" (OG) = 205

(1150 + 0511) + (205 + 502) = 2368

"Jesus Christ" (SG) = 2368


The following is another example of "Triple Frame Geometry" that I submitted to the OEIS:

CONJOINED TRIANGULAR FRAMES


Incredibly, I found that the Standard Hebrew value of Jesus Christ (754) forms the Triple union of the 37th Generator Triangle (i.e. the Triple union of Frames derived from T109). Thus, this 754 figure pairs with a Triple set of the 37th Hexagon:

THE TRIPLE TRIANGLES OF JESUS CHRIST (754)

The foundational number of Biblical Numerics = 37

The Ordinal Hebrew value of "Jesus Christ" = 115 = The 37th number that is the product of two Primes

The Standard Hebrew value of "Jesus Christ" (754) forms the "Conjoined Triangular Frames" derived from the 37th G-Triangle

This 754 figure pairs with a Triple set of the 37th Hexagon


The Ordinal Hebrew value of "Jesus" (Yehoshua) = 58 and the Ordinal Hebrew value of "Christ" (HaMashiac) = 57. I did an analysis on the "Conjoined Triangular Frames" derived from T58 and found that it points to the Ordinal Greek value of "Jesus Christ":

THE TRIUNE TRIANGLE OF JESUS CHRIST (T115)

The Conjoined Triangular Frames derived from T58 pairs with T57

"JESUS" (OH) = 58
"CHRIST" (OH) = 57

This pairing is precisely accommodated by T115

"JESUS CHRIST" (OH) = 115

The sum of this pairing of T57 with the Conjoined Triangular Frames derived from T58 = 2050 counters

"JESUS CHRIST" (OG) = 205


This miraculous pairing is further confirmed through the following convergence:

THE TRIUNE TRIANGLE OF JESUS CHRIST (T115)

T115 accommodates T58, which sections off THREE Triangles of T57

"Jesus" (OH) = 58
"Christ" (OH) = 57

T58 + (T57 + T57 + T57) = T115

"Jesus" (SH) = 391
"Christ" (SH) = 363

391 + (363 + 363 + 363) = 1480

"Christ" (SG) = 1480

Jesus Christ is God

Jesus Christ created the universe



THE GOD OF THE PRIMES

I will now demonstrate a Prime PROOF OF GOD that I have uncovered in the Triple Repdigits (111 through 999). We begin with the Primes indexed to the Triple Repdigits, which reveals a stunning result indeed (note that the Triple Repdigits are themselves tied to the Prime number 37):

The Genesis 1:1 Prime Factors:

Genesis 1:1 (SH) = 2701 = 37 * 73
2701 + 1072 = 3773

The Triple Repdigits are PALINDROMIC (i.e. they read the same from left to right or right to left) and are each tied to 37 through the following symmetry:

111 / (1 + 1 + 1) = 37
222 / (2 + 2 + 2) = 37
333 / (3 + 3 +3) = 37
444 / (4 + 4 + 4) = 37
555 / (5 + 5 + 5) = 37
666 / (6 + 6 + 6) = 37
777 / (7 + 7 + 7) = 37
888 / (8 + 8 + 8) = 37
999 / (9 + 9 + 9) = 37

The sum of the Primes indexed to the Triple Repdigits = 37073

The sum of the Triple Repdigits = 4995

37073 - 4995 = 373 * 86

"ELOHIM" (SH) = 86
"LOGOS" (SG) = 373
"THE LOGOS" (SG) = The 86th Prime (443)


This now leads to the following Prime perfection, which shows how the 26th Prime yields the 86th Prime bounded by the Genesis 1:1 Prime Factors (37 and 73):


The Ordinal Hebrew value of "Elohim" (God) = The Prime number 41. Incredibly, I found that the Ordinal Hebrew value of Elohim is also tied to each of the Triple Repdigits through the following symmetry:


The Ordinal Greek value of "Jesus Christ" = 205. Observe how the EXACT average of the 27 values in parenthesis (derived from the Triple Repdigit pattern we just saw) yields the Greek numerical signature of Jesus Christ:


The Ordinal Hebrew value of "Jesus Christ" = 115. We now have the following Prime perfection, which reveals the Hebrew numerical signature of Jesus Christ:

The 37th number that is the product of two Primes = 115

"JESUS CHRIST" (OH) = 115

The digital products of the Triple Repdigits yield a Prime Factorization sum of 115

THE LOGOS BALANCE:

373 - (86 + 86 + 86) = 115
373 + (86 + 86 + 86) = The 115th Prime (631)

"THE LOGOS" (SG) = The 86th Prime


I showed how the Prime numbers 37 and 41 are the "Prime constants" of the Triple Repdigits. I will now demonstrate how the God of the Primes is also the God of geometry. The Triple Repdigits entail a TRIPLE repetition of the 9 positive single digits and the very first polygon (the Triangle) consists of THREE sides. With this in mind, we will now see clearly how this Triple Repdigit code highlights the Tri-unity of God (i.e. the Trinity):

The Prime constant of the Triple Repdigits = 37
The Prime constant of the expanded Triple Repdigits = 41

(3*7) * 41 = T41

"ELOHIM" (OH) = 41


The Standard/Ordinal Theorem of Biblical Numerics gives us a self-referencing system of authentication. Thus, we have the following miraculous confirmation:

"ELOHIM" (SH) = 86

T86 = 3741 = The CONCATENATION of 37 and 41


THE GOD OF GEOMETRY

I wil now demonstrate a powerful geometric proof of the Triune God of the Bible. We begin with the union of THREE squares of 13, which reveals a geometric split between the Ordinal Hebrew value of "Lord Jesus Christ" (Adonai Yehoshua HaMashiac) and the Standard Hebrew value of "Christ" (HaMashiac):

THE TRIUNE DIAMONDS

The union of THREE squares of 13^2 reveals an outline of 144 counters (the red counters) and inner diamonds of 363 counters (the blue counters)

"LORD JESUS CHRIST" (OH) = 144
"CHRIST" (SH) = 363

The sum of the first 13 squares:
1^2 + 2^2 + 3^2 + 4^2 + 5^2 + 6^2 + 7^2 + 8^2 + 9^2 + 10^2 + 11^2 +12^2 + 13^2 = 819

"LORD JESUS CHRIST" (SH) = 819


When I found this Triune figure, I knew from experience that there had to be more (in keeping with the alphanumeric principle of REPEATEDLY self-referencing identities). This now takes us to the following perfection:

THE TRIUNE TRIANGLE

The PERIMETER of T41 bounds the Triune diamonds of 144/363, which sections off THREE equal regions of 118 counters

"ELOHIM" (OH) = 41
"CHRIST" (OG) = 118


The number 37 is the foundational number of Biblical Alphanumerics and forms a Hexagram (i.e. a Star of David). Thus, the following is very fitting indeed:

THE TRIUNE STARS

The Triple diamonds of 144/363 pairs with Triple Stars of 37 counters

Genesis 1:1 (SH) = 37 * 73


The Ordinal Hebrew value of "Jesus Christ" (Yehoshua HaMashiac) = 115 = The 37th Semiprime number and the 115th Prime number (631) forms a geometric Hexagon:

THE PRIME HEXAGON

"JESUS CHRIST" (OH) = 115

The 37th number that is the product of two Primes = 115

The 115th Prime number (631) forms a Hexagon that yields a Star of 1261 counters


We see that the geometry of the 115th Prime number points to a specific Hexagram. I wondered what would happen if the Triple diamonds of 144/363 was inscribed and bounded by the PERIMETER of this Star (similar to how it was bounded by the PERIMETER of T41). What follows is a miraculous confirmation of the Standard/Ordinal Theorem of Biblical Alphanumerics:

THE TRIUNE STAR

This is the precise Star that is derived from the 115th Prime number (631)

"JESUS CHRIST" (OH) = 115

The Triple diamonds of 144/363 sections off 754 counters (the red counters) within this Star

"JESUS CHRIST" (SH) = 754


I did a further analysis of this Star figure of 754 and found that it even yields a perfect geometric split between the Standard Hebrew values of "Jesus" (391) and "Christ" (363):

THE TRIUNE GOD

"JESUS" (SH) = 391
"CHRIST" (SH) = 363

Green counters = 391
Red counters = 363




The Biblical God creates through the spoken word. Everything that exists outside of God represents an embodiment of the 22 ciphers of the Hebrew alphabet, and, by extension, of mathematics. Ultimately, mankind will return to the understanding that Hebrew is mathematics and mathematics is Hebrew.
