Words Surrounding Mormons
& 801 in Hebrew, Greek, and English
Ye are the
salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith
shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast
out, and to be trodden under foot of men.

Covenants 101:39,40; 103:10.

God has been very definitive in how he has used words in
scripture. Encoded in the alphabetic arrangement of the words is a unexpected
yet enormously profound testimony of the work of the Father in the latter days
-- another kind of Bible Code. The very name, father, in Hebrew is
spelled aleph bet, or alphabet. The English spelling and
pronunciation of alphabet fittingly combines the Greek aleph
with the Hebrew bet, for it is in the Greek New Testament and the
Hebrew Old Testament lexicons, combined with the English dictionary, that this
code is deciphered. The current study uses this approach to study the word
"Mormon" and the number 801 to reveal some astonishing things about
the Lord's people in these latter days who have become as salt that has lost
its savor, and of a righteous remnant who will awake and put on strength for
the redemption Zion, the kingdom of God -- a literal kingdom or government --
finally being established, no more to be thrown down.
Alphabetically listed, the 801st word in the Greek
New Testament lexicon (standard numbering by James Strong) has some compelling
correlations to the idea of Utah's Wasatch Front, whose telephone area code is
801. For example, one of the phrases listed as an antonym for that word is,
"sober, free from the influences of intoxicants and avoiding them."
Speaking metaphorically, Isaiah calls the Ephraimites in the head of the fat
valleys "drunkards," for their lack of seeing clearly or of acting
prudently in their God-ordained mission.
When "Mormon" is spelled with Greek letters, Mwrmon,
and inserted alphabetically in the New Testament Lexicon, the words around it
are very interesting to consider. A word two prior refers to "salt not
being able to make things salty." The word two after the insertion point
likewise "refers to salt that has lost its flavor." Both word
801 and the four words surrounding the insertion point of "Mormon"
in the Greek Lexicon have as their primary meaning, "foolish."
The word foolish links scripturally to two very powerful
images presented by the Savior. One is of the wise and foolish virgins.
Another is of the wise man who builds his house on the rock of Jesus Christ,
the word, versus the foolish man who builds his house on the sandy foundation
of the arm of flesh and the philosophies of men. Much could be said, which has
been said elsewhere about the ways in which the Mormon culture has departed
from the most fundamental elements of the gospel of Jesus Christ such as the
baptism of fire and of the Holy Ghost, and the role of grace as an undeserved
gift of salvation for those who come forth with broken hearts and contrite
spirits, acknowledging that fact (see, for example, A
New Testament: A Mighty Change for a New World, by Sterling D. Allan).
With its "just follow the prophet" dogma, Mormon culture has
replaced the chief cornerstone, Jesus Christ with a man. The oil of the Holy
Ghost hardly trims the lamps of many Wasatch Mormon hearts. They prefer to be
lead by a hierarchy of men who are gifted administers of a worldwide church
but who hardly have time to immerse themselves in the word of God, preferring
instead to show up at the social events that have become idolatrous
obsessions, such as the sports festivities and the wining and dining of the
world international elite. If Wasatch Mormons devoted as much energy
fulfilling their mandate to establish the kingdom of God on earth as they
currently spent attending the Babylonian pastimes, God would have a mighty
army that could defy the New World Order kingdom of the devil that is
currently thriving thanks to the willful cooperation of the Mormon elite.
Finishing the scriptural picture about salt that has lost its
savor, the word immediately following the insertion point of the Hebrew
spelling of "Mormon" (0/9/)
means, "a treading down, something to be trodden with the feet."
This precise match-up of such a crucial scriptural theme is
anything but haphazard coincidence. It unquestionably links Mormons to the
fulfillment of the scripture which says, "ye are set to be a light to the
world and the savor of men, but if the salt loses its savor, it is henceforth
good for nothing but to be cast out and trodden under feet of man."
Ironically, while reflecting poorly on Mormons, it also vindicates them as
having indeed been set by the Lord to be an ensign to the nation, a mission in
which they have dropped the ball. Nevertheless, validating the prophecies, the
word studies go on to show that a remnant will come forth from their ranks (as
well as from the other denominations) who will arise and put on strength to
Bearing in mind that 801 is the telephone area code

Without insight or understanding, unintelligent, foolish. [Ouch.
This word comes up again in the words around "Mormon" in Greek, mentioned
below] In Matt. 15:16, Christ characterized Peter and the
other disciples [those clued into the new ministry]
as being asunetoi, since they were unable to reason out the practical
application of His parabolic teaching. [That wasn't very
complementary either.] [Now, in contrast,] In Rom. 10:19 [post
crucifixion / resurrection], the believing Gentiles [today:
the "remnant" who will overcome] were considered by the
unbelieving Jews [today: Gentiles] as being illogical,
and thus accepting Jesus as the Messiah [today: David servant

"Free from the influence of intoxicants and avoiding

Utah from the outside world. Ironically, Isaiah doesn't agree, at least
not when it comes to the spiritual state. In Isaiah 28:1, he metaphorically
depicts them as the: "drunkards of Ephraim in the head of the fat

In the NT, a breaker of a covenant or agreement, faithless, treacherous

it with an active sense referring to those who, being in covenant and treaty

The only sure foundation upon which men might build and have
safety is the rock of Jesus Christ, through the gospel, including the largely
forgotten elements of coming forth with the broken heart and contrite spirit,
calling upon the name of God, and receiving not just the baptism of water, but
also the baptism of fire and of the Holy Ghost. Mormons by in large place
their trust in the institutional church and the men who lead it, rather than
in the Supreme Being who is supposed to be at its head. The folly of their
placing their trust in the arm of flesh will soon enough be manifest, when
suddenly, unannounced by their intoxicated shepherds, sudden destruction comes
upon them.. Contrary to their delusion that "all is well in Zion,"
they will see that their foundation of flesh is not a sure foundation. Had
their hearts been placed on the Lord and his word, they would have anticipated
the coming calamities. Only those who place their trust in the Lord alone will
survive the purging and build up Zion which will fill the whole earth, for it
will be founded on the One Sure Foundation.
Let's now see what words are found in vicinity of word 801 in
the Old Testament lexicon, this time quoting from Gesenius'
Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament. The reason these
words are not in numeric sequence is because Gesenius' alphabetic sequence for
his vowel scheme is different than James Strong, who devised the standard
795, 796, 797 $&$:!
Ashdod "a fortified place," "a castle"
I think of the Mormons tucked away in the valleys of the
mountains in the West, "where none shall come, to hurt or make
afraid," according to one of their most beloved hymns, in reference to
their trek from Nauvoo to the Salt Lake valley, beginning in 1847, this being
their fourth such forced exodus and hopefully their last. Another
rousing hymn proclaims, "Firm as the mountains around us, stalwart and
brave we'll stand, on the rock our fathers planted for us in this goodly
798 see 6449 %#25
"a part," "a fragment"
I think of "remnant." An interesting and
symbolic note about this word is that Gesenius references it in the footnote
of the page. One has to turn to a page far away to discover the
definition of this word.
So also is it true of the "remnant," the
"hearts core" of Mormonism who will ultimately establish Zion.
They go far beyond the normal call to dig deeply in the word and in the
faithful execution of their duty to God and their fellowmen.
Also symbolic is that they are often removed, separated, from
the mainstream body. This is the essence of the symbolism of the words
around 435, which is the newer, second telephone area code for Utah,
corresponding to those areas outside of the central corridor of population. [See
The Gesenius lists right after 6449 is 6451, which means,
6451 diffusion, abundance, Ps. 72:16 "let there
be abundance of corn in the earth." Hence a handful, or still
better if taken simply, a handful of corn.
Corn is code for Messiah and those who take upon them the
mantle of Christ, overcoming as he overcame, being purified as he is pure.
I've done an 80-some page write-up on Corn which I have not yet posted for
For now, let's get back to the words around 801 in the Hebrew
lexicon. The next entry in Gesenius is:

(an unused root) (1) to prop, sustain; (2) to heal, solace.
I think of the healing balm of the gospel and the sure
foundation of the rock of Jesus Christ -- which is supposed to be the essence
of what Mormonism is about.
800 %:! Fire
I think of the mighty change of heart, the baptism by fire,
which is an essential part of entering through the gate, embarking on the
straight and narrow way, and thus establishing oneself upon the rock of Jesus
Interesting indeed, is the co-incidence that 800 happens to be
the primary and most well-known toll-free telephone prefix -- in token of the
free gift of salvation offered by Jesus Christ to those who come under his
grace through obedience to his gospel. [See on-line book, A
Mighty Change for a New World.]
On a society level, the coming fires of tribulation are what
will define the entire body of those who are now considered
"Gentiles" in prophecy, to then become classified as
"Israel," having been transformed.
Now in curious contrast and juxtaposition to this comes 801,
symbol of the Mormons by virtue of the telephone area code, 801, where the
world headquarters of the church is located.

I find this enormously significant. In scriptural
imagery, the church, or the Lord's people, are compared to the bride of the
Lord. Simultaneously, it also conveys the imagery of the whore, the unfaithful
woman whose affections are on other suitors (e.g. Mormon Church and the New
World Order with its global perks and assurances). The wheat (bride) and
tares (whore) together grow until the separation. Jesus' relationship
with Mary Magdalene is an amazing metaphor in this light, for here was one who
had been possessed of seven devils and then becomes the closest associate of
the Savior's in his mortal ministry. [See essay
to this effect.]
That vicinity word 802 also means "anyone,
whosoever," conveys the idea that it is not a matter of gender, that all
may become the "bride" of the Lord in a metaphorical sense.
%*:! Support, column, foundation.
Note that this word definition closely matches word
#803 in the Greek lexicon, "Firmness, security, safety."
Again, the idea of the sure foundation of Christ comes to mind. But
also, in the metaphorical sense of the bride-Lord relationship, we each are to
be a firm support to the cause of Christ on the earth.
Gesenius lists two more words before getting to word 804.
see 380 0&:! darkness,
Proverbs 20:20 reads "Whoso curseth his father or his mother, his lamp
shall be put out in obscure darkness." I think of the work of the
Father in the latter-days among the Gentiles, which work they are prophesied
to reject, turning from the light that comes among them, as the Jews rejected
the Son. [Click
here for extensive scriptural commentary on this theme.]
Also, in this sense, the "mother" represents the spiritual/
intuitive revolution taking place in our day, elevating women back to their
rightful place of dignity.

a step; (2) pr.n. Assyria
Isaiah and others use the "Assyrian" as a metaphor
for that latter-day army that the Lord uses as an instrument of his wrath to
punish the wayward people and nation of God, which pertains to the United
States in general but to the Mormons in these valleys especially. The
metaphorical salt that has lost its savor that is trodden under feet of men,
is an alternative rendition of the same chastening event. The modern
"Assyrian" equivalent will consist of many not-yet-converted
Israelites, who after the treading down will convert and become more righteous
than the Gentiles/Mormons ever were -- just like the Lamanites and Nephites in
the books of Helaman and III Nephi. The Lord used the Lamanites to
punish the Nephites, and the Lamanites became more righteous than the Nephites.
