Alphabetics -- Good or Evil?
Q. Isn't this a form of numerology or
divination, and are they not of the devil?
A. Like television or the computer, for example, Alphabetics, is a
tool. How you use it and the intent of your heart determines whether
it is good or bad. For every grace of God, Satan has a
counterfeit. And conversely, for every demonstration of evil, an
opposite good can be found -- opposition in all things.
Q. What evidence can you produce that
this is of God?
A. The proofs are many; nay, they are innumerable; but, like any
other matter of divinity, require an element of faith to be embraced and
Q. What is the practical application?
A. Besides finding insights into today's world in general,
discovering specific applications to your situation from an outside source
of miraculous proportions (coded messages) can help be a catalyst for
receiving personal revelation from God as you ask questions and receive
answers for direction in your life. It can also increase your faith in
God and of his(&her) awareness and foreknowledge of you
specifically. Most of all it can be a tool for helping you accomplish
your unique foreordained mission in life wherein you might find the greatest
Looking up ______
Q. Can you look up my name/address/phone
A. Part of the discovery process is making applications (drawing
parallels) from what you find under a given word definition or statements on
a page. It is hard for me to do that for or regarding anyone unless I
know them. Furthermore, a big part of the value of this approach is
what is gained in the process of making the discoveries -- looking things
up, being impressed to look here or there, and being amazed by the
results. Why would I want to take that away from you? That
is why I generally encourage people to look things up for themselves.
Q. How do I go about looking something up?
A. There are a great many ways for looking things up. These
are listed in a 'tools and
methods' document. The general idea is that you are basically
matching contemporary numbers and names with the numbering and alphabetical
listings of words, especially from a scriptural source. The most
important principle is one of faith that there is something to be found,
seeking the Lord for inspiration as you look for applications. It is
not a purely logical process, nor is it a purely whimsical one. It
requires the left and right brain to be engaged, working together.
Q. What determines whether
something will have an application?
A. From what I have observed thus far, I would say that the more
something is in line with its divine destiny or course, the more likely it
is to have a strong application in Alphabetics.
Q. How can I spot a 'match' or a
'hit'? What is the 'fudge factor'?
A. Matches dealing with words and their associated numbers is very
much like matches of people. Some combinations have very little in
common. Some have a great deal in common. Marriages usually
result from the best matches. But even in the case of the combinations
with little in common, there is nonetheless something of benefit to be
derived. Any two people on the planet can glean a lesson from one
another if they spend any time together. The passing on the street is
of little value if there is no pausing. So it is with word and number
matching. Time spent pondering possible applications and meanings is
never wasted time. Nevertheless, there is still such a thing as a
'match made in heaven.' So it is with word-number matches.
And like the ideal couple, their voracity is accompanied by multiple and
ongoing witnesses to verify the divine intention.
Q. How accurate is Alphabetics?
A. Alphabetics is but a tool to bring a person closer to God and
to their foreordained calling in this life. It is not an end of
itself. It is a means to an end, that end being truth. The
accuracy of application is not a fixed quantity but is a dynamic flow of
input to help a person or society make wise choices and change for the
better, helping them along their path to ultimate good -- God.
Q. Can the code be used for making
A. 'Prediction' is not really an appropriate word to describe the
codes prophetic mode. 'Prediction' connotes the idea of a fixed
outcome. That is not the ultimate purpose of divine prophecy -- to
tell us what is going to happen no matter what. Rather, the purpose of
prophecy, including alphabetics, is to show us what will happen when a given
path is taken. By showing us what the outcome would be ahead of time,
it spurs us to alter our present course -- to repent. Hence the best
'prophet' is one whose dire predictions never come to pass because people
change their ways for good. Principles, which stem from God, might be
thought of as fixed and immovable, but the application of those principles,
or lack thereof, and the associated consequences is a dynamic process of
flux and change. Alphabetics is but one of many tools given us by God
to bring our lives into harmony with his will, and part of that is by aiding
us as we look to the future at the possibilities of where we might end up
and inviting us to amend our current course to bring about a better outcome.
Q. What resource do you find the most
A. I find that the Old and News Testament lexicons are the most
rich and consistent source for finding significant and enlightening
matches. And among the four lexicons in my possession, I find
Zodhiates' Complete Word Study
Dictionary: New Testament to be the best overall.
Q. Have you tried looking in
books other than scripture-based books?
A. I have, and what I have observed is the following: The more
aligned a person, place, event, book is with the purposes of God, the more
likelihood there is for a "hit" when looking something up.
Q. Have you looked for the phenomenon
in books or sources of a blatantly Satanic origin or nature?
A. I've not pursued this and have no inclination to so either at
this point. That will have to be the work of someone else. I would
guess that there is a reverse phenomenon: that the more aligned something is
with Satan's purposes, the more likely the "hits" will pertain to
Q. What books have you looked at in search
of the phenomenon, and how well did they 'work'?
A. I have found the Old and New Testament lexicons to be the most
productive. I've gone to the library and looked at lexicons other than
the four I own, and found the phenomenon to hold there as well, looking up
page numbers for example, the books having varied pagination. The LDS
Topical Guide and Bible Dictionary is another productive source using this
approach. The various English dictionaries I've looked at (page
numbers and surrounding words) are consistently pretty good. My guess
is that the same holds true in other languages. Page numbering in
scriptures also works, though it is harder to find a 'hit' one might
consider significant, inasmuch as pretty well any page of scripture is going
to convey application to just about any situation in question. Chapter
numbers, inasmuch as they are the same from one scripture publication to the
next seem to have a higher occurrence of finding significant matches.
These are the sources I routinely check.
In addition to these, I've also tried other religious books, such as a
copy of the Quran I have. The phenomenon (page numbers matching other
numbers in question) doesn't seem to hold there except remotely and
infrequently. Jesus the Christ by James Talmage, on the other
hand, seems to be more productive (page numbers) than a book of no religious
