Gematria – Introduction

Gematria is an alphanumeric code of assigning a numerical value to a name, word or phrase based on its letters.
The pronunciation may be heard here:
Gematria is a God given language; it works across Biblical Hebrew, Greek and in the modern English language.
To find out the gematrial value of a word or phrase, visit here:

Alternatively, you can calculate the value using the following coding:
For Simple English Gematria: A=1, B=2, C=3, ….. Y=25 and Z=26.
For English Gematria: A=6, B=12, C=18, ….. Y=150 and Z=156. This is just 6 fold the Simple English Gematria values.
For Jewish Gematria using the English alphabet, the numbering basically goes up in units, then tens, then hundreds.
But there are exceptions – J, V and W – these are the newer letters in the modern English alphabet.
A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4, E=5, F=6, G=7, H=8, I=9, J=600, K=10, L=20, M=30, N=40, O=50, P=60, Q=70, R=80, S=90, T=100, U=200, V=700, W=900, X=300, Y=400 and Z=500.
Notice that the 800 value is missing.
The Jewish, Greek and Latin letter values may be seen here:

Revelation 13.18: Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.
In this Biblical verse, we are introduced to Gematria. God’s Word tells us that Here is wisdom, also by us acquiring understanding, we may count the number of the beast. To ensure that we get it right, God tells the answer – Six hundred threescore [and] six which is 666.
The Bible also speaks to us, telling us about many other numbers. Consider numbers 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11 and 12:
4 God’s Absolute Control over His Creation & World / Earth (directions, winds, empires) – Universal Truth – Creative Works including All Things Terrestrial – Message (hear)
5 Power & Divine Grace – Mercy – God’s Goodness – Pentateuch – Redemption – Human Weakness (life, child) – [Living] Faith
6 Man (conscience, flesh) – His Weakness – Manifestation of Sin – Evil – Satan (& his influences) – Something Incomplete or Imperfect
6 Also: Lacking (i.e. not yet 7), Human wisdom, efforts and labour (Luke 13:14).
7 Spiritual Completeness / Perfection – Sanctification – Resurrection – Covenant – Holy Spirit – Finished – Totality – God’s Seal – The End (sword)
8 New Beginning / Birth – New Order / Creation – Circumcision of the Heart – Resurrection – Eternal Life – Holy Spirit – New Man (eyes)
10 Testimony – Law and Responsibility – Ordinal Perfection / Completion – God’s Law – Trial – Testing – Account
11 Disorder – Chaos – Judgement – Disorganization – Lack of Fulfilment – Imperfection – Incomplete [ Judas was replaced by Matthias ] – Darkness – Fear
12 Governmental Perfection – Divine Power, Rule & Authority – Completeness – God’s Church – New Jerusalem

When we acquire this knowledge and wisdom, by understanding their meanings, then God is able to speak to us more fully.
Job12.22: He discovereth deep things out of darkness, and bringeth out to light the shadow of death.
Proverbs 1.7: >The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge: [but] fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Proverbs 2.6: For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding.
Proverbs 2.10: >When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul;
Proverbs 2.11: Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee:
Proverbs 3.13: >Happy [is] the man [that] findeth wisdom, and the man [that] getteth understanding.
Proverbs 4.7: Wisdom [is] the principal thing; [therefore] get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Ecclesiastes 2.26: For [God] giveth to a man that [is] good in his sight wisdom, and knowledge, and joy: but to the sinner he giveth travail, to gather and to heap up, that he may give to [him that is] good before God. This also [is] vanity and vexation of spirit.
Jeremiah 33.3: Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
Daniel 2.21: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:
Daniel 2.22: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what [is] in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
Luke 8.10: And he said, Unto you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God: but to others in parables; that seeing they might not see, and hearing they might not understand.
Ephesians 1.8: Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Ephesians 1.9: Having made known unto us the mystery of his will, according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed in himself:
Colossians 1.26: [Even] the mystery which hath been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints:
James 1.5: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
So, we see from the above that it is only correct to:
2Timothy 2.15: Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

As we delve into Gematria we shall find that it is extremely detailed in it’s meanings; so much so, that we shall have to concede that this multilingual language is beyond chance and man’s capability. In learning about Gematria, it will be seen to be divinely inspired by that master heavenly mathematician who also intertwines this theme with chemistry and physics. A truly multi-language, multi-subject ability from our Creator God to mankind.
