Area Code 385 --
Utah's New Prefix
Telephone number calls: Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion. Shake thyself from the dust; loose thyself from the bands of thy neck.

American Numbering Plan Administration on Monday [5/8/00] assigned the 385 area code to
Davis, Morgan, Utah and Weber counties on Dec. 31, 1999. Salt Lake County will keep the 801
area code, and the rest of the state will keep the 435

"Utahns who need to place long-distance telephone calls to Davis, Morgan, Weber and Utah counties will continue to use the 801 area code for the next several years."
(Salt Lake Tribune ; Oct. 11, 2002)
(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.)
1 Awake, awake; put on thy strength, O Zion; put on thy
beautiful garments, O Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into
thee the uncircumcised and the unclean.
The correlations here are not just happenstance or abstract conceptual applications. There are also multiple-witness mathematical linkages or gametria that prove that the match-up is intentional.
(June 3, 2000)
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 385.
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.
