(If this is your first exposure to "Alphabetics" you might want to
glance at an introductory document or read a quick teaser.)
Extensive word studies have been done on the two current
telephone area codes in the state of Utah. The word definitions associated with the numbers 801
and 435 have been rich with prophetic commentary relevant to
the people, religion, and trends of these regions of Utah. Therefore, when I heard that Utah
was getting a new area code, I was immediately curious to see what kind of commentary that new
number might have in store in the Alphabetics code.
While the words surrounding 801 convey primarily the idea of "foolish,"
calling to mind the parable of the wise and foolish virgins; and the words surrounding 435 convey
the idea of "an outcast remnant;" the words surrounding 385 convey primarily the idea of
"awake, arise from dust," piecing together the theme of Isaiah 52:1-3, which is the most
oft-quoted passage of Isaiah in the Book of Mormon. (e.g. 2 Nephi 1:13,14,23; 2 Ne. 8:7,24;
Jacob 3:11; Mosiah 2:40; 3 Ne. 20:36; Ether 8:24; Moro. 10:31.)

All three Utah Area Codes are interconnected in the Alphabetics Bible Code, proving a prophetic
intention in the match-up.
Salt Lake County retains 801, while the other counties previously 801 will become 385. The
outlying areas of Utah will retain the 435 area code.
It turns out that these three numbers are explicitly linked by using the various
Alphabetics tools, including gametria, which is also called Theomatics.
As a teaser for the write-up, I wanted to share with you a discovery I made a
couple of days ago that will be part of the completed write-up, which I will announce later.
Briefly, by way of peeking, I will say that the definitions surrounding the number
385 have a far more bright outlook than those for 801. While 801 strongly depicts the idea of the
people of God being as salt that has lost its savor -- the foolish virgins -- 385 ties in strongly
to the Isaiah 52 wording, "Awake, awake, put on strength O Zion."
My sense was that though there are a lot of 385's in the world, this commentary on
385 was intended to be directed specifically to this segment of Utah Mormons and Christians
represented by the 385 telephone prefix. Still, I thought it would be nice to have some kind of
explicit indication that this was intended to be the case.
Two days ago, I found just that. It turns out that the three telephone area code
numbers for Utah, 435, 801, and now 385 are interconnected by the Alphabetics code.
Word number 435 in the New Testament (NT) lexicon (James
Strong's standard numbering) is spelled ANER [the E is the letter eta]. The numeric values of
these Greek letters are A(1) + N(50) + E(8) + R(100) = 159.
Word 385 in Zodhiates' NT lexicon (my favorite, and the one I use most
often), is found on page 159. That matching number links the numbers (area codes) 435 and
Word 385 in the NT lexicon is ANASPAO. The numeric values of these Greek
letters are A(1) + N(50) + A(1) + S(200) + P(80) + A(1) + O(800) = 1133.
Word 1133 in the NT lexicon means, "foolish women." "Foolish"
is the primary definition of word 801 in the NT lexicon. That parallel definition links
area codes 385 and 801.
The meaning of word 435 in the Greek NT is "man" -- perfect antonym of
"woman," thus providing a link between 435 and 385 ("woman" in definition
1133, the gametria value of 385).
As yet another validation, word definition1133 (gametria of word 385) is found on
page 386 of Zodhiates' NT lexicon.
According to the Alphabetics word-number studies, words and numbers in vicinity
are intended to lend commentary. 386 is definitely very close to 385.
There's more (I found this just now).
Word 385 in the NT lexicon derives etymologically from word 303, which, for what
it is worth, was the area code in Colorado when I grew up there. On page 303 of Zodhiates' NT
lexicon is word 877, which means "folly, foolishness," which parallels the definition of
NT word 801, "foolish." Thus 801 and 385 are linked by this means as well.
The first word on page 303 of Zodhiates NT lexicon is numbered 876. That number is
significant inasmuch as it is the page number in Gesenius' OT lexicon on which the very LAST word
is listed. Considering the significance of "alpha" and "omega," this
correlation would seem to suggest the importance of the 801, 435, 385 set and the peculiar people
to whom they refer.
Also, word 385 in Gesenius' Old Testament lexicon as well as word 385 in Thayer's
NT lexicon both occur on pages 41 of those respective volumes. Considering the overall pagination
difference between the texts, since one is in reference to the Old Testament and one is in
reference to the New Testament, though not hugely significant statistically speaking, this is
nonetheless worth note.
The next page alignment series begins on page 135. The third word on the page,
which means, "to affirm strongly, assert confidently," is numbered 1226. The gametria
for word 801 in Greek comes to 1226. Hence another Utah area code hit.
