John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Revelation 1:8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
Revelation 22:13 “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.”
1 John 1:5 This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all.
The first Biblical verse quoted above from the New Testament refers to what is now known as “Gematria” albeit in occult form – the Greeks called it Isopsephy. They discovered Gematria/Isopsephy which is why it is mentioned in the New (Chrisitian/Greek) Testament. In Genesis (a Greek word meaning “birth”, or “beginning”), the first book of the Old (Jewish/Hebrew) Testament, there is no mention of God being the Word. In Genesis, God is using the spoken word to create Creation – this is not referring to Gematria because it is based on the written word: the alphabet.
The word Gematria is itself Greek in origin deriving from the word “geometry” (geometria – γεωμετρíα: ge/γη – earth; metro/μέτρο – measurement). It is the coding of numbers into letters and is commonly known as numerology. In antiquity, letters took the place of numbers as there was not a separate set of symbols for them. Gematria is geometry in language: for Biblical examples, I refer you to this website: 37×73.com.
Geometry And Form.
Geometry is a mathematical discipline that is an integral part of creating form (the other part is light). There is physical form – objects that require math for their construction (buildings, cars, furniture etc.). The other type of physical form that geometry is responsible for involves the creation of all forms of life. Human DNA has a mathematical coding that forms a geometric shape. Other types of molecules etc., contain their own geometry/coding.
Math also influences non-physical form such as thoughts, emotions, character traits – that is, people’s natures, or psychology. This is what the study of numerology is about not only in relation to people’s birthdays, but also their names.
The Word Is God.
The math encoded in letters – words – is why the Word is linked to God in John 1:1 via the phrase “the Word was with God”. Jesus Christ is the God (a.k.a. Lord God, Almighty) of Christianity – he represents the Sun (light) because Christianity is Sun worship. This is reaffirmed in the fourth Biblical verse above 1 John 1:5 with the statement “God is light”. Therefore, math (words/letters) and light (the Sun/Jesus Christ), are intertwined. (John 1:1 does not differentiate between the written and the spoken word. However, the focus in the New Testament is the alphabet which only came about with the invention of the written word. The use of letters as numbers also only began with the introduction of the written word.)
The Esoteric Meaning Of Letters.
An alphabet is a group of letters upon which a written language is based that includes both vowels and consonants: “alpha” is the first vowel and “beta”, the first consonant. The earliest form of writing only contained consonants. The Phoenicians created these consonants by morphing Egyptian hieroglyphs into letters. The Greeks added vowels to these consonants.* Vowels represent the soul, the power (light) that brings life into being, that which is eternal – they are symbolically linked to the Sun. Consonants represent the personality, the material realm, that which is temporary – symbolically, they are connected to the planetary ruler of the material domain: Saturn.
In the second Biblical verse above, Revelation 1:8 the phrase: “I am the Alpha and the Omega” is “spoken” by the Lord God/Jesus. Alpha (Α, α) and Omega (Ω, ω) are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet, both vowels: vowels = soul = light = the Sun = Jesus Christ. So, Gematria, the coding/sacred geometry in language is incomplete without vowels since they represent the life force: the Sun, or light. Nothing can be brought into form, or sustained in the material realm, without light: it is all encompassing – “the Beginning and the End” (Revelation 22:13 – the third Biblical verse quoted above).
Vowels were later adopted by everyone else in their written languages because, I am assuming, it was acknowledged that the Sun/light is absolutely necessary to bring things into form in the material domain. This also explains why an alphabet begins with a vowel – light precedes, or creates, form. (It’s interesting that alphabets only contain a fraction of vowels, and yet, that’s where all of the power is contained.)
Gematria is often called the “God Code” but this is only referring to math. I would call it the “Light Code”, or “Light Language” since, in my opinion, math itself is not the source of life – it alone cannot create life but it can influence the expression of it, or manipulate it. If math could create life, then certain calculations on a piece of paper, computer, iPhone, or in your mind could manifest some sort of life form out of thin air – a baby, a plant, a cute little kitty cat – but that’s not how it works now, is it? In order to create life, you need something that is already alive because it contains light (photons) – cells, for example. Human beings cannot and will not ever be able to manufacture life/light from scratch via any form of occult, or scientific knowledge.
Another example of what I mean in the previous paragraph, involves my own experience as a writer. Through the written word, I have been able to transform myself in powerful, healing ways. Transformation means “to change form”, not create form – they are different things. I was able to influence my own soul (self) by using the language that is encoded within it. In other words, I changed my psychology via the written word (“psyche” being the Greek word for “soul”).
The Masonic/Greek Origin Of The Bible And How It Relates To Gematria.
During my Biblical research in 2018-19, I unearthed things I did not expect to find – namely, that the Bible is Masonic and that Masonry began in Greece. Masons are builders of structures that requires a command of architecture, which necessitates knowledge of geometry, math etc. The Greeks are known for their architecture and knowledge of geometry, hence their discovery of Gematria. (I also came across Biblical scholars and other independent researchers who confirmed that Gematria was used by the Greeks long before anyone else because they were the first to bring it to light.)
I was inadvertently led down this path of exploration after learning from two people that the Bible was originally written only in Greek. Not long after this happened, I recalled a conversation I had with a devout Pentecostal woman in the 1990’s who told me the same thing as these guys that I found online (one of them was Jewish – he insisted that the Holy Book of the Jews was, and is, the Talmud). What this means is that the Hebrew in the Old Testament and the Aramaic in the gospels (first four books) of the New Testament, were translated from the Greek later on (I doubt that they were accurately translated). I did not ask any of these people how they knew this – in the 1990’s I did not care, but more recently, I wanted to do my own research from scratch. Doing this type of detective work over the years has taught me that so much knowledge has been hidden, or distorted (co-opted, or hijacked). This means that dots have to be logically connected in order to get to the truth.
Eventually, I came across the following book, “The Greek Origin Of Freemasonry” by Jack Nicholas Casavis which tied everything together for me. Masonry is connected to Christianity in the following excerpt on pp. 51-2 taken from the book, “Freemasonry; What, Whence, Why, Whither” by Sir John Alexander Cockburn, p. 24:
“It is held by some that the rapid spread of Christianity was due to the ground having already been prepared for its reception by the Guilds of Greece, such as the Thiassoi or Eranoi, which also derived the practice of the symbolical breaking of bread from their ceremonial meal which was a characteristic feature of their assemblies. It is implied that as the body was sustained by material nourishment, so was the soul strengthened by the precepts inculcated. Possibly this ancient custom may explain the feeling that a Masonic ceremony is not complete without passing from labour to refreshment.”
So much of what Casavis reveals about the history and practices of Masonry as well as indigenous Greek myths, demonstrates the origin of some Biblical stories and Christian practices. Here is a very brief summary of what is contained in this book – the Biblical/Christian connections have been added by me:
- The Garden of Eden myth came from the Mythological Garden of Hesperides wherein there was a tree that grew golden apples. It was protected by a fire-breathing snake wrapped around its trunk (p. 38).
- The story of Moses and the staff that turned into a snake, originates from the same story that was carried out by the Greek God, Dionysos. The same rod that was used to part the sea in the Moses myth, was used in the original myth by Dionysos to part two rivers: Orontes and Hydrastes. In this story, the waters receded so that he alone could walk on dry land (p. 38).
- The two cement tablets that were acquired by Moses containing the ten commandments, originates with the Masonic “Petroma” (petra – πέτρα: stone): two cemented stones that constituted the Holy Book for the Ancient Greek Masons (pp.107-8).
- The story of the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ is also taken from the Dionysian myth as he experienced the same, was buried on the side of a hill and then resurrected by his father, Zeus (pp. 144; 171). This was dramatized during Masonic rituals as symbolic of rebirth (palingenesis – παλινγένεσις: palin, πάλιν, “again” and genesis, γένεσις, “birth” – “born again”; p. 145).
- The practice of having a Godfather during a baptism (a Christian custom that in modern times may involve a Godmother, or Godparents) originates from a Masonic ritual (p. 115). The one being initiated into the final (third) degree of the Order is raised to this level by the Godfather.
- Monotheism (mono – μóνος: alone, only, sole; theos – Θεóς: God), the belief in only one God, is a Masonic concept (p. 107). The Tetragrammaton (tetra – from τέσσερα: four; gramma – γρáμμα: letter): the four-letter name of this solitary God, is the Greek one: Θεóς/ΘΕΟΣ (pp. 29; 124).
- The Sun was central to Ancient Masonry (p. 147). This aligns it with Christianity which is Sun worship. All of the Abrahamic religions are linked via Saturn worship. However, Christianity differs from the other two in that its focus is Jesus Christ/Son of God (Sun) and not the Father/LORD/Allah (Saturn). Sun worship existed long before Saturn worship (I go deeper into this symbolism in the following article: Judgment Day & The Aquarian Age).
Now, refer back to what I stated earlier in this post about the Sun…the Greeks adding vowels which placed the Sun/light in the written word…their knowledge of geometry…the fact that vowels were added to other written languages (e.g. Aramaic and Hebrew – the former being an earlier version of the latter) only after the Greeks invented them…
Ἐν ἀρχῇ ἦν ὁ λόγος (In the beginning was the word)
This phrase – the beginning of John 1:1 – was imprinted in the Greek on warrants that were issued by the Masonic Lodges of England in 1733 (Casavis, p. 68).
Connect the dots.
So Mote It Be.
* There are seven vowels in the Greek alphabet: Α, α; Ε, ε; Η, η; Ι, ι; Ο, ο; Υ, υ; Ω, ω. The importance of vowels/light in this language is evident in the overwhelming number of vowels in their names – my last name is a good example: Papadopoulos. The Greek masculine version – Παπαδóπουλος – contains an equal number of vowels and consonants. However, the feminine form of the name drops the last consonant and replaces it with a vowel – υ – so that it contains more vowels than consonants. This is common practice for feminine surnames. On average, feminine first names contain more vowels than consonants: my first name – Ελένη – is an example of this and happens to mean “light”. It is derived from the Greek word for Greeks: Éλληνες (Hellenes).
P.S. The written word is way more powerful than the spoken word. This is because what is spoken evaporates but what is written is made real in the physical world. This explains why written contracts trump oral ones. A written contract can only be changed via the written word – any spoken changes will never override what is written. However, what is written is not set in stone because it may be rewritten ad infinitum.
