bullet  Explanation

One of the primary features of Alphabetics Word-Number scripture code studies [click here for brief intro] is that words in alphabetic vicinity have something to do with one another, lending scriptural commentary not only to the meaning of the words, but often also supplying a prophetic twist.

Notice that the two words listed above come one after the other in the Old Testament Hebrew lexicon.

Hence, the fact that the Hebrew word for "web" is followed immediately by the Hebrew word for "highway" can be construed as a prophecy of the Internet.  Embedded in this ancient language is a prediction of something that has come into place in just the past decade.


bullet  Full Definitions

The following definitions are as found in Gesenius' Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon to the Old Testament.

4545 ;,./ To weave, threads, web of a weaver.

4546 %-./ (1) a way cast up, embanked, highway; hence a public way. Applied to course in life. (2) a ladder, steps.

The following definitions are as found in James Strong's Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible.

4545 ;,./ macceketh: from 5259 in the sense of spreading out; something expanded, i.e. the warp in a loom (as stretched out to receive the woof): -- web.

4546 %-./ mecillah: from 5549; a thoroughfare (as turnpike), lit. or fig.; spec. a viaduct, a staircase: -- causeway, course, highway, path, terrace.

Word 4545 derives from word 5259, which is defined by Gesenius as follows:

5259   (1) To intertwine, to weave, to hedge; hence the warp. From the idea of hedging, fencing, comes -- (2) to cover, to protect.

This is an interesting etymology inasmuch as the purpose of the Internet is to publish abroad, rather than to hedge or cover; yet integrated into the Internet protocol are firewalls, passwords, and endless encryption to protect private or sensitive information.

Word 4546 derives from word 5549, which Gesenius defines as:

5549    (1) To lift up, to elevate, to exalt, to gather, or cast up into a  heap.  Specially, to make a level way by casting up a bank, to embank. From the notion of being elevated, lofty, has sprung -- (2) to move to and fro, to waver, used of things that are loft, tall, and slender, which are easily shaken.  Specially used of the slender and pendulous boughs and twigs of trees, such as willows and palms, which are used for weaving baskets or, bound together to make brooms.

Notice that both etymologies (for 4545 and 4546) mention the idea of weaving, which is central to the Internet with its endless hyperlinks and cross-referencing.


bullet  Personal Application

Hebrew word 4545, "web," is found on page 489 of Gesenius.  This number, 489, is the first telephone prefix in the little town of Mapleton, Utah, where my Dad was born and raised and where I have lived on two occasions while doing the work of "greater things, scripture word code studies."

It was while living there in the Fall of 1998 that I posted this Greater Things web site for the second time, which site includes the sole publication of the Alphabetics Word-Number code studies which I discovered.

This present write-up on "web" and "highway" is one of thousands such discoveries to which the Lord has lead me.  Because I am the discoverer of the code, the coincidence that the means of its publication -- the Internet -- is found on the page with the telephone prefix of where I lived when I published it is not insignificant.  Such uncanny coincidences abound in these Alphabetics word-number studies.  In fact, as word for "number" in Hebrew (4530) is found on this very page.


bullet 4545

A further extrapolation of purpose for these connections and this site being published on the Internet can be found by taking the numbers 4545 ("web") and 4546 ("highway") and looking up these numbers in the Greek New Testament lexicon.

Word 4545 in the Greek NT is the transliteration of the OT name, Samuel (8050), which means "heard of God," or "name of God," shem meaning "name," and el meaning "God."

Indeed, my experience has been that these Alphabetics word-number studies probe more deeply and answer more specifically than any other approach of which I am aware, especially in regards to the name and essence of God.

There is more that could be mentioned in this regard, but we will let this suffice for now.


bullet Internet, 888, www and 666

On March 3, 2000, after doing the above write-up, I went to (Open Directory Project) to post this study to their directory.  To find an appropriate category, I began by typing in "Internet."  I was amazed to see the results come back saying that there were 888 categories including the word "Internet."  [See screen grab image below.]

888 is a very significant number.  First, it is the sum of the numeric values of the letters that spell Jesus in Greek.  I've done several entire write-ups elaborating on 888.  [Go to "search" and enter "888."  At the time of this writing, there are 108 documents, but the main ones will be listed toward the front of the search.  See for example 888 and 'without hands.']

888 has a very positive connotation, and its coming up like this in relation to the Internet, conveys the positive uses to which this information resource can be put.

However, on the other hand, the "www" that stands for "world wide web" equates to 666 in Hebrew, conveying the opposite connotation, namely the evil that can also be perpetrated by the very same tool.  That "sex" is by far the most often entered query in searches, bespeaks the depravity that is found on this medium.
