Alphabetics on 888 (Jesus) -- and 888 on Alphabetics
This simplified document was created for the purpose of introducing the Alphabetics code to those unfamiliar with it. A look at many of the occurrences of 888 is used to illustrate the various means of looking things up, and to show the insights obtained through such studies.


bullet  Introduction

The following principles, methods and resources are meant to assist you as you undertake to employ Alphabetics as a tool of learning.

These descriptions also serve the purpose of helping you better understand where I am coming from in the studies I have posted here at Greater Things web site.


bullet  General Principles

Liken to Us:

All things testify of Christ.  All things.  That is all inclusive.

Wherever you turn, you can find parallels and analogies that can assist you in your life and your understanding of society if you will yield to the Lord in humility, ask in faith, and let his Spirit guide you.

The lessons in some things are more readily apparent than in others.  But nothing is devoid of a message of truth if we turn it to the Lord.


Inasmuch as God has equated himself with the "Word," turning to words, especially from the scriptures, their spelling, their meaning, their usage, the numbers associated with them, and even the pages on which they occur, is sure to be a rich source of meaningful truth.

Left Brain and Right Brain

Like in any other mode of receiving greater light and knowledge from God, with Alphabetics you need to engage both the left-brain analytic abilities and the right-brain creative juices to get the most out of your studies and ponderings.

Let the Spirit be Your Guide

The most important thing of all is that you engage in these studies with faith in the Lord, asking that the Spirit of God be your companion as you learn.

The Miracle of Synchronicity

While any two things could be compared and analogies and lessons derived, a characteristic feature of Alphabetics is that the degree of applicability usually is much more along the lines of "a match made in heaven."  For example, when I looked up word 33 in Greek a couple of years ago to see what commentary I might derive about my life at the time, insamsuch as I was then 33, the fact that the Greek word is age goes far beyond a remote coincidence.  I could then feel more confident in applying that word's meaning, "go," in my own life in the spirit of the admonition given Isaiah, "Go, tell these people...," a calling which is already applicable to anyone, but which few dare fulfill.

Our Callings in Life

Everyone has a calling in life, based on their talents and their weaknesses.  The Alphabetics word-number studies are a powerful tool in helping us discover our divine gifts, overcome our weaknesses, and carry out our missions.  Most importantly, they help us come to know God, as we come to realize that each of us is a part of the body of Christ, that his mind might be in us, and that we might dwell in him, perfected in him.


bullet  Primary Methods

Look before and after a word in its alphabetical listing (such as in a dictionary or lexicon).
If a word (such as your name) does not occur in the listing, merely insert it alphabetically where it belongs.
Sometimes you will find relevance in words tens of words away from the original word.
Almost always, the words in close vicinity have strong relevance of some kind.
Look at the numbers associated with the word, both the word number and the page number.
Look up other words that have that number.
Look up a number in its various occurrences (such as word number or page numbers of various dictionary-like books) and consider the words that are associated with that number or in its vicinity.
Places to look things up.  These are the ones I use, which I have found to be consistently rich in finding treasures of understanding and wisdom.  Others are likely to be good as well.  The complete bibliography for the following books is found later in this document.
Bible Lexicon
James Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible (appendix lists brief definition and etymology for each word)

Strong's Number
e.g., 2424 Greek
Old Testament Lexicon (Hebrew word with English Definition):
Gesenius  Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament (lengthy definition and etymology)
Words range from 1 to 8674
New Testament Lexicon (Greek word with English Definition):
Zodhiates' Complete Word Study Dictionary (my favorite of all these; lists etymology, lengthy definition, synonyms, antonyms)
Theayer's Greek-English Lexicon of the NT (etymology with lengthy definition, lots of Greek mingled in definitions)
Words range from 1 to 5624

Convert the spelling of a word to numbers by reversing the mneumonic phonetic memorization scheme for memorizing numbers.
The standard scheme is usually used to convert numbers to words whereby a number can thus be memorized by creating a word or phrase from the letter-equivalents of the numbers.

Look for chiasms or parallels in alphabetic listings of words.
click here to see an index of Alphabetics chiasms/parallels
Divide a number in half or 1/3 or 2/3 or 1/4 or 3/4 and see what the words associate with those numbers mean.
For example, my previous phone suffix, 9155, was too big to look up, so I divided it by 2.  Word 4577.5 in Gesenius' OT lexicon is on page 491, which happened to be the phone suffix for that phone number.

Be willing to be creative in the possibilities.  Go with your intuition, but don't leave common sense behind.


bullet  Cautions

In the mouth of two or three witnesses

The discoveries you make in Alphabetics Word Studies should be borne out by additional witnesses from other sources, such as direct scriptural statements.

Take the Spirit for Your Guide

These things in no way should replace the process of personal revelation in which truths are borne to our minds and our hearts through the power of the Holy Ghost.   They are but a tool to facilitate that process.

Agency is Supreme

God will honor your agency.  If you desire to do a deception, he will endeavor to influence you otherwise, but ultimately will allow you to get caught up in a delusion.   Make sure, therefore, that you are striving first and foremost to align your life with God's will, that your will might become one with God, for it doesn't go the other way around.

All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
