The Internet in the Bible (by JJ Dewey) -
prophecies that could be intended to describe this vast web.
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
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
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.
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.
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
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.
888, www and 666
On March 3, 2000, after doing the above write-up, I went to www.DMOZ.org
(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
