Indeed the many names of God and their permutations in Kabbalah have numerical values that are believed to contain potent power. Jewish numerology or gematria is the spiritual interpretation of numbers and is thought of as an essential skill for true understanding of holy scripture and connecting with theurgic power. The practice of gematria involves assigning a numerical value for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet. Regardless of various online gematria calculators (and Cornelius Agrippa) have to say, gematria does not apply to English. If you speak to someone who studies numerology they will tell you that there is an uncanny relationship between numbers and words. They’ll tell you that letters and words all have a numerical value and weight that is implicit of deeper meaning, connecting other words of similar weight. In fact, this concept has been given merit and studied in relation to biblical texts for hundreds of years. Kabbalist Jewish scholars call this study gematria and believe that there is a hidden code in the Torah that contains clues to current and future events. “Gematria is a method of assigning the numerical values to a term or a phrase”. The Gematria meanings must have direct relevance to the written meaning of the phrases. In fact, the meaning of the Gematria of phrases in the book of 2 John is quite pertinent to the book’s message. This is a powerful demonstration the underlying meanings of the spiritual numbers is correct. Were it not so, the numerical meanings would be gibberish compared to the written meaning of the phrases. Each string of letters (the words, in this case) represents a number obtained by summing the letter values. The fourth method, Mispar Katan Mispari, integral reduced value, reduces the total value of the word to a single-digit number. If the sum exceeds nine, then the integer values of the total are added together again and again until a single-digit number is received. For example, the word, ḥesed (lovingkindness) has an absolute or normative value of 72. The numbers of the sum of 72 are then added together (7 plus 2) to equal 9.
