If you are new to Gematria let me explain what its all about, so if you would like to understand it/use it yourself you may do so. Lets start with the VERY basics below.
How Do You Pronounce Gematria?
You can pronounce ‘Gematria’ with a G sound, OR by using the Gah sound. ‘Gah-mat-tria’, which is a common pronunciation via the Jewish users of this system. While the G sound – ‘Gee’ is due to users of this practice comparing the discipline to its origins via Sacred Geometry or Geography. Gamma being the third letter of the Greek alphabet and TRIA representing Earth measures and the number three. Either pronunciation is fine.
Where Did Gematria Come From?
The original system of Gematria is between 5,000-10,000 years old. Ancient legends describe Seven Earthly Elohim (Annunaki sometimes known as Dagon or Apkallu), appearing out of the sea near Babylon to explain the use of Gematria to the Black Tribes of Sumer called Bawru, or Sag-gig-ga. The later Gnostics called these beings Fallen Angels, while the UFO meme calls them Aliens. They were said to have brought with them containers of knowledge called MES from the tree of knowledge which grew in the Abyss, the MES were represented via cones. MES contained instructions, like a how-to-guide or tutorial. One of the figures, or angels, was known as Barack, which is where President Obama gets his first name. The Sumerians also called these beings The Seven Sages. Below you can see them depicted with their MES Cones.
MES = 222
MES from Tree = 1110
MES Cone = 444
Apkallu = 444
Who Was First To Use Gematria?
When Gematria came into use around 5,000 – 10,000 years ago the words of the Sumerians were shown as numbers and thus overtime EACH and EVERY culture in the ancient period was assigned a numerical basis for their alphabet and the numbering patterns and ciphers were decoded EVEN for cultures that did not have a numbering system at first. According to the legend, a scribe named Enmerkar was the first human to write, and his first word was a coniform symbol meaning Nail – as in he nailed the Kings opposition to the wall via the word. Enmerkar would later become a King himself and is said to have lived for 420 or 900 years. Enmerkar ruled over Sumerian territory and is responsible for building a wall around it to protect it from illegals. His chief general of his armies was Lugalbanda, who is called Cush in the Holy Bible. Lugalbanda was known as the Shepherd King and fathered Gilgamesh, known as Nimrod in the Bible. Nimrod was the result of a marriage between Hathor, the Cow goddess of Egypt, and Lugalbanda of Sumer. Nimrod later became the builder of the city of Sumer and erected the Tower of Babel. Years later the great king Sargon would rule over Babylon and unite much of the kingdoms. Enmerkar is credited as the first person to develop writing – his invention cuneiform. Sargon is credited with adopting the use of Gematria to be shown via his grand palace of Sargon.
What Is The First Known Use Of Gematria?
One of the earliest known usage of Gematria occurred during the reign of Sargon II (Isaiah 20:1) between 722-705 B.C. In the 8th century BC, Sargon II, an Assyrian king, whose name means “the true king”, ordered the construction of a palace in present day Khorsabad in northern Iraq. Šarru-kên “legitimate king”, reigned 722 – 705 BC)
According to a cuneiform inscription found at the palace, the length of Sargon’s grand palatial walls, of Dur-Sharukin (House of Sargon), were built 16,280 Assyrian units, which corresponded to the numerical value of Sargon’s name. The Mesopotamian scholars, or sages of Sargon‘s era, treated numbers as a sign of the divine interconnectivity between the natural world, which they thought to be guided by the manifestations of nature, and the supernatural world, which is hidden and mysterious.
Why Were The Ancients Doing Gematria?
Since the time of the ancients, the persons of importance such as Princes and Kings had their names calculated and shown to correspond to certain numbers which ‘revealed’ their true persona. The ‘true persona’ of a King/Prince revealed their so-called right to rule or Kingship. It gave them the numerical pattern or designation of ‘true king’ or rightful heir.
This happens to be the case for ancient king Sargon, who when calculated was given the number 16,280, OR written in English/Sumerian Gematria as the number 444. A = 120 in Sumerian, as A = 6 in English/Sumerian Gematria. Rulers and Kings are equal to a numerical pattern that is often revealed with the signature of 444. See example below:
TRUE KINGS & Princes / Rulers
The King = 444
Ruler = 444
Sargon = 444
A Nimrod = 444
Bilgames = 444
Messiah = 444
Jesus = 444
Aragorn = 444
At the end of The Lord of the Rings, Aragorn was crowned as the True King of Gondor. His right to rule was hidden throughout, yet later revealed. The gematria of his name is 444, or 16,280 in Sumerian.
Is Gematria Only For Greek or Hebrew?
In the ancient period, some one million persons possessed the knowledge of Gematria usage and applied it to OVER six languages including: Hebrew, Sumerian, Greek, Roman, Spanish, Yiddish, & eventually English. The common misconception most people have is that Gematria was only used in Hebrew, yet this is FALSE. Gematria use was NEVER relegated to only one language. EVER. At any point in the ancient past when a known language was in use, scribes and elders would use ciphers and Gematria to decode the words and phrases of that language. It is assumed that an Egyptian based Gematria system was lost in the fire of Alexandria.
What Is A Famous Example Of Gematria?
Young lovers in Greece and Rome used Gematria to express their relationships. For example, one inscription on a wall in Pompeii once read, “I love the girl whose number is 545.” This was a matter of using Gematria to showcase that the number of the persons name was understood by the ‘lover’. The name of the girl was “Phanessa”. In Greek Gematria the name ‘Phanessa’ equals 545.

HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE NUMBERS:
The long format English Gematria ciphers and short form are the most utilized systems today for English decoders of Gematria. Since in Israel everyone is taught Gematria alongside Math, it is an understood format to display hidden numerical significance between our words and phrases. To understand the simple version of this we will look at the first lesson of Gematria called Chai/Hai :
The most common and well known example of Gematria is the Hebrew word Chai (“living”, Hebrew Hai) which is both a symbol and word meaning “life”. In English the word Chai is pronounced ‘hi’, as though one were offering a friendly salutation. The word Chai consists of the Hebrew letters Chet (het n) and Yod. Applying a set system of Jewish Gematria (“Ragil” the basic method or “Mispar gadol” the Great Number method) to the Hebrew letters Chet ( which is given a value of 8) and Yud (which is given a value of 10) results in the calculated value of 18 or 10 + 8.
Hebrew Chai 18 Life gematria
As a result of this Gematria find, the number eighteen is oft viewed as a positive sign or OT of “good luck”. In Judaism, the number 18 has come to represent the ‘good of things to come’, or “ life and good fortune‘. For this reason Jews oft wear charms or emblems which depict this popular symbol. In English Gematria the word Hai is connected to 18 as well.
The Numbers Patterns In English Gematria
Here is a very short example of the connecting numbers most oft found in Gematria.
222 – Usually locations or things that connect like things or places.
444 – Having to do with connections. When found around a name it can symbolize the person as bearing the title of Prince, or King. Having to do with true kingship or rule. This 444 pattern also shows things having connection.
666 – Having to do with negative connotations. 666 appears as a lie, or falsehood, as well as the identification of things dealing in money, evil, or deception. 666 is also a connecting number pattern.
888 – Having to do with two things connected. English Gematria = 888
906 – Often has to do with verification, truth, or reality.
1110 – Having to do with concepts, ideas, or thoughts that exist.
These are the numbers that are best exemplified in the system as connecting phrases or words. They often show up when connected to two things which are alike or show importance to being with one another.
Gold = 228 In Gematria (In Hebrew Gold Is Zahab)
Zahab = 228 In Gematria
Negative Connotations In Gematria
Mark Of Beast = 666
Monsanto = 666
Demonic Evil = 666
Los Haa Satan = 666
Witchcraft = 666
In Gematria the words and phrases you find may link together to showcase similarities.
So lets look at a linking word in Long Format Gematria:
An Masonic Code: ALGDGADLU = 1110
This is the code of the upper tier Masonic practice. It is understood as: ‘A la Gloire du Grand Achitecte de l’Universe’. Translated as ‘To the glory of the Grand Arhcitect of the Universe’. In Masonic terms G.A.O.T.U. is the Demiurge Creator of the Universe or GOAT. Greatest of All Time.
Think “Isis Ra and El” which equals 666 (ISRAEL) – Connect Isis Ra And El = 1110
What If My Name Equals 666 Is This Bad??
Not really. Names and Phrases that have a tendency to equal 666 are often negative connotations, however names are also Anagrams very often standing for some other word or phrase. Also names are just conflated phrases based on Religious concepts and Beings in the ancient period. Imagine a secularist telling you their name is Michael Chistof, and then stating they are an Atheist. Yet their name MEANS “I walk with God/Deity for and of Christ.” Yet the reality is they like so many people are ignorant.
Canaanite God El = 666
English Gematria is also an anagram of ‘Sheltering A Magi‘ which both equal 888.
