Hi 76of86I had not intended to make any further posts on these forums as no one seems to have accepted the possibility that the unusual method of gematria evaluation of Scripture that I have used reveals hidden truth.
I am quite new to this forum and though I am not saying anything that has not been said before (probably in the archives), I do seem to be saying things that are either in direct opposition to what others think or some are prepared to consider and evaluate.
Gematria is not something I have studied as I am not good with languages. As I have stumbled upon this forum, and the BW website, I am interested in what Gematria has to offer. As Jesus said; (Mark 9:4) For he that is not against us is on our part.
so I am happy to go along with anything that supports the Bible.
I was recently presented with an article on Gematria which shows how the number 7 is throughout the phrase; "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth". Believing the Bible and the ancient scriptures to be the Inspired Word of God, it is not surprising to see the consistency of his word and the promises and prophecies which are consistent.
It does not surprise me that God has developed a language and given his chosen race a language that has a code or has a mathematucal design to it. The Bible uses numbers to give significance. The number '7' is associated with completeness, '8' new beginnings, '40' a period of testing. Materials like gold and silver also have special spiritual significance, so it does not surprise me that Gematria is proving to be a revealing tool.
I have found that searching for one's own posts does not seem possible on this forum, so I do not know how I can get to search for the posts you have written. I have still a lot of sections to investigate and I will now go to the most obvious to find some of your posts. I will now download your article and read it to find out what you have to say.
If you start posting again, you might have a better response now that the forum has grown and is growing each day.
