The following have been abstracted from "The End of Evil," by Jethro Black
The Tanya by Rabbi Shneer Zalman of Liadi states: "It is written: 'Forever, O God, Your word stands firm in the heavens.' Psalm 119:89. The Baal Shem Tov, of blessed memory, has explained that 'Your word' which You uttered, 'Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters ' Genesis 1:6, these very words and letters stand firmly forever within the firmament of the heaven and are forever clothed within all the heavens to give them life, as it is written, 'The word of our God shall stand firm forever' Isaiah 40:8, and 'His words live and stand firm forever ' (Liturgy - Morning Prayer following the Shema). For if the letters were to depart for an instant, God forbid, and return to their source, all the heavens would become naught and absolute nothingness, and it would be as though they had never existed at all, exactly as before the utterance, 'Let there be a firmament.' And so it is with all created things, in all the upper and lower worlds, and even this physical earth, which is the 'Kingdom of the silent' (inanimate) This same thought was expressed by the Ari, of blessed memory, when he said that even in completely inanimate matter, such as stone's or earth or water, there is a soul and spiritual life-force that is the enclothing of the 'Letters of speech' of the Ten Utterances which give life and existence to inanimate matter that it might arise out of the naught and nothingness which preceded the Six Days of Creation."
Man was created by God breathing into him a breath of life. It is breath that is transformed and made into the letters of speech by the five parts of the mouth - throat, tongue, cheek, teeth and pallet. This breath is the life-force of man and so when he speaks and utters words he is putting his life-force into these words.
Words have a source in the mind. Before we speak the words are already present in our minds. Our mind works far faster than our mouths. Sometimes, when we have had a dream we wonder how we managed to dream so much in such a short amount of time. When we speak we do not just utter words. It might seem that these words come immediately but that is because of the speed of our mind. After all, when we speak we put a lot more than letters into our words. We put enunciation, feeling and intent. Not only do we put feeling into our speech but also we can change other people's feelings by our speech.
On a deeper level, words are connected to numbers. There are several languages that use letters as numbers. Among these are Greek, Hebrew, Arabic and Latin. In English modern numerology uses letters for numbers and by working out certain numbers using one's name and date of birth it is possible to discover certain patterns in one's life. Pythagoras, the 5th century mathematician, said: "Numbers are the language of the universe." Sir James Jeans, the British physicist stated: "The Great Architect of the universe now begins to appear as a pure mathematician."
The Greeks called the numerical value of letters and words Gematria, and it is this term that I have used throughout this book. Ancient Numerology is the same as Gematria and has little to do with divination. Hebrew borrowed this term and also called the process Gematria. The word Gematria is related to the word Geometry.
Physicists explain that light has a dual nature. Sometimes it behaves as a wave and sometimes it behaves as a particle. This is true of the energy of the universe: sometimes it behaves as a number - wave and sometimes it takes a more concrete form of a word - particle.
It is in nature that we look for some glimpse of God's essence. Said Moses to God: " Show me Your ways that I may know You, that I may find grace in Your sight " Exodus 33:13. Job said: "From my flesh I behold Godliness." Job 19:26. Gematria is the Secret Code by which we can unearth God's ways. We can reach further to the essence of this universe by examining the Numerical Energy Forces that are used to control the events in our history. My book "The End of Evil" attempts to give the reader a glimpse into these Numerical Energy Forces. By seeing the connections that exist numerically between words and phrases we can see the wonder in the universe and in history. Nothing has happened by chance, all is by God's design. Only our free choice to do good and evil is in our hands.
Let us now examine the different forms of Gematria. Firstly we shall look at the English forms. The first code I have called the Placement Value (PV) of a letter and you will find this used in Numerology and by others who have sort to find connections within the English language. It is very simple as you can see from Table below.
In my short book "11th September - Top Secret" you will see this system used throughout. In this book I also used a system called Small Gematria, which is used heavily in Numerology. This is when you take the value of a word, for example KING, which equals 11+ 9 + 14 + 7 = 41. Then you add the 4 and the 1 and get 5.
Small Value = 19 + 13 + 1 + 12 + 12 + 22 + 1 + 12 + 21 + 5 = 118
1 + 1 + 8 = 10 1 + 0 = 1
So the Small Value of "Small Value" is the smallest possible value - 1!
Try this one:
Placement Value = 16 + 12 + 1 + 3 + 5 + 13 + 5 + 14 + 20 + 22 + 1 + 12 + 21 + 5 = 150
Alphabetical Order = 1 + 12 + 16 + 8 + 1 + 2 + 5 + 20 + 9 + 3 + 1 + 12 + 15 + 18 + 4 + 5 + 18 = 150
This shows that the Placement Value is given by the Alphabetical order of the letters.
The next code is a very special one. I have not seen this code anywhere and only came across it through some inspiration from above. In this code we take the word number of a letter and then use the Placement Value of each letter to find what I call the Large Value (LV) or Gematria.
A = 1 One = 15 + 14 + 5 = 34
B = 2 Two = 20 + 23 + 15 = 58
C = 3 Three = 20 + 8 + 18 + 5 + 5 = 56
D = 4 Four = 6 + 15 + 21 + 18 = 60
E = 5 Five = 6 + 9 + 22 + 5 = 42
F = 6 Six = 19 + 9 + 24 = 52
I will let you work out the other letters; you can see the results in the table below.
This is a profoundly important system of Gematria and I am deeply grateful for the inspiration I received from God to reveal this form of Gematria to the World. My first encounter with the Large Value Gematria was in using it to work out the values of War and Peace. Using the Placement Values these words did not equal. War = 42 and Peace = 30. However, using the Large Values they did equal. War = 270 = Peace. To me this was significant, as one day war would be transformed into peace. My second shot at using this system was in working out the values of Power and Glory. Using the Placement Values Power = 77 = Glory. I had tremendous glee when I discovered that, by using the Large Values I got Power = 439 = Glory!
|P =||16||SIXTEEN =||G =||SEVEN =|
|O =||15||FIFTEEN =||L =||12||TWELVE =|
|W =||23||TWENTY-THREE||163||O =||15||FIFTEEN =|
|E =||FIVE =||R =||18||EIGHTEEN =|
|R =||18||EIGHTEEN =||Y =||25||TWENTY-FIVE =||149|
Wow! I was convinced that there was something in this form of Gematria and you will see it used often in my book "The End of Evil" and in the book I am presently writing called "The Creation".
Another example of two closely associated words that have the same Placement Value and Large Value is Piano and Organ.
Organ = 15 + 18 + 7 + 1 + 14 = 55 Piano = 16 + 9 + 1 + 14 + 15 = 55
Now for the Large Values of these words.
The next form of Gematria is what I term the Whole Value of a letter or word. This is formed by adding the Placement Value to the Large Value. For example, A equals 1 in Placement Value and 34 in Large Values. Its Whole Value is thus 1 + 34 = 35. To calculate the Whole Value of a word or phrase you just add the Large Value to the Placement Value for the whole word. Obviously the Whole Value of Power would equal the Whole Value of Glory as they have the same Large and Placement Values. The same with Piano and Organ. One of my early discoveries of this form of Gematria came when examining the names of the first two kings of Israel - Saul and David. Saul was replaced by David as Saul lost the privilege of Kingship. When examining these two names I wanted to see if there was a connection between them.
David = 40 (PV) and Saul = 53 (PV).
This gives the Whole Values of David as 361 + 40 = 401 and the Whole Value of Saul as 348 + 53 = 401. Hence, on the level of the Whole Value, or better, on the vibration of the Whole Value, David and Saul are the same. The fact that two words are equal is significant. An example of two words equalling are Tsunami = 97 = Tidal Wave. You will notice that a Tsunami is another word for Tidal Wave. It comes from Japan and used in English. Everyone to whom I have shown English Gematria has asked: Why English? Why is a language which is made up of so many other languages have these special systems of Gematria? I discuss this issue in my book "The End of Evil".
Now there are many words and groups of words that equal 97 as with any number. The art is not to force ad hoc connections between all words that have the same value. Rather, if there already exists a connection then the Gematria adds another dimension to that connection. In the case of Tsunami and Tidal Wave the connection is obvious. The Collins' English Dictionary has this entry:
Tsunami n. a huge destructive wave, esp. one caused by earthquake. Also called: tidal wave. [from Japanese, from tsu port + nami wave]
Also, Serpent = 97 = Tempter. Now there is a connection here as the Serpent tempted Eve into eating from the Tree of Knowledge. You might like to make the connection of a tidal wave to a serpent as waves role like a snake. Well, that's a bit pushing it. As another example we could take the two words Jail and Cell. The word Jail has one meaning but Cell has a few meanings one of which is the same as Jail - a small simple room as in a prison. Yet Jail = 32 = Cell. Historically the word cell was used for the rooms in a prison and then when the microscope was discovered and cells looked like little rooms all joined together in layers, so they were called cells.
To take this discussion a step further, two words or phrases that are equal may either show that the words have a close positive connection or they may be diametrically opposite. This concept is discussed in "The 11th September - Top Secret" in connection with the verse:
"In the day of prosperity be joyful, but in the day of adversity consider; God made one thing opposite the other, to the end that man should find nothing after him." Ecclesiastes 7:14
On the topic of God's creative speech we have a Gematria that shows this power.
Speech is creative and the way you spell a word is part of the spell!
In Hebrew the word for Word is Davar that is the same word for Thing or Object. This shows that it is the word that gives rise to the object. Using Large Values we get.
