    Some Hasidic communities that are steeped in the study of kabbalistic literature believe that the Torah, as read through the lens of gematria, contains clues to current events. But what’s really interesting about it, and the impetus for writing this piece, is the purported use of gematria in mainstream media. They say that many news stories and headlines are encoded using various types of gematria. Also that these encodings are sometimes components of larger, more complex, magick spells and/or rituals. A now dead Semitic language, Akkadian is thought to possibly be the root of several other Mesopotamian languages. Akkadian also happens to be the language involved in the first recorded use of gematria, or the converting of letters to numbers. King Sargon II of Babylon was said to have built a bad-ass wall that was 16,283 cubits long. Examples of applying the numerical meanings to phrases in Scripture are provided for the book of 2 John and other passages (see above). It just takes the time and attention to sort it all out and find the patterns, as the ancient Soferim once did long ago. Please note the author of this website does not claim to be an expert in the languages considered herein. The things shown here represent some of the things this websites author has discovered while personally studying Hebrew and God’s word. While certainly, you can find a few here and there, in addition to the example of 541 (Yaakov ben Rivka and Yisrael), the sum 541 also equals the following 3,443 verses! At the same time, he believed that the effects of modern technology and society were entrancing everyone into a hypnotic waking sleep. Around the turn of the 20th century, the mysticism movement aimed to bridge the gap between western and eastern philosophies with theosophy, esotericism, and a burgeoning interest in the occult. This spiritual zeitgeist inspired George Gurdjieff to develop the Fourth Way; exercises that can be incorporated into one’s daily life to remove yourself from a state of hypnotic waking sleep. The main focus of the Kabbalistic use of gematria is on the name of God. The tetragrammaton, or the Hebrew name of God in four letters, YHWH, was the original focus of gematria. Leeds has applied his cipher of the English alphabet to the tetragrammaton and believes there is something there. Leeds says that it makes sense that a language could be distilled down into basic numbers since we already do this with binary code.
