The spoken word is linked to the written word, which is built on its alphabet, which is phonetic, pictographic, and has a numerical order connect74ed to Genasis74, Nature and science.
The word gematria comes from the Greek geometria from which our English word geometry is derived. In Spanish, geometry is also spelled geometria.
noun \gəˈmā‧trēə, ˌgēmə‧ˈtrēə\ plural gematri·ot \-ēˌōt\
Note: Gematria is best defined as 'the geometry of the language'. It includes the symbolism of the shapes of the alphabet, the direction the language is written/ read in (English is left-to-right), counting the number of letters7 in a word4/ name/phrase and giving that symbolic meaning, and the alphanumeric code/cipher of assigning a number(74=A1+N14+U21+M13+B2+E5+R18) to a letter, i.e. A=1, B2...Z26.
"Gematria is the name given to a method of figuring hidden meanings
- The Secret Science of Numerology - The Hidden Meaning of Numbers and Letters
Note: Even 'experts' sometimes make the mistake of equating gematria with numerology. Gematria is objective (non-opinionated) whereas numerology is subjective (opinionated). Numerology reduces a gematric sum to a single digit and then assigns meaning to it, i.e. "74 = 7+4=11 = 1+1=2 which symbolizes ---." Step 2 of gematria74 does NOT reduce sums to a single digit nor does it attach symbolic meaning to any 1 number74. It simply makes a connect74ion between74 words/names/phrases that converge74 on the same gematric sum. A numerologist can use gematria, but they can also use your height and weight and that doesn't make you height and weight numerology. A numerologist can also use your zip code and your area code, but that doesn't make your zip code and area code numerology. Gematria is a code that like any good7__4 code, the message from the those sending it is meant only for those receiving it. Coded-messages often do NOT apply to every word in that message. The one receiving the codes64 must be skilled to separate the coded-message from the 'noise'.
"The authors of the New Testament applied gematria -
a literary device whereby the sums of certain phrases produce significant sacred numbers - to convey special concepts. The practice of assigning numerical value to words was apparently common in the ancient world. In Hebrew and in Greek there were no separate symbols to represent numbers. In each language, the letters of the alphabet stood for number values, so, inescapably, the values of letters forming each word could be added together to yield a sum called that word's gematria. Certain names, epithets, and phrases of Scripture, both Hebrew and Greek, were carefully constructed so that their gematria would be consistent with the sacred numbers of the classical cosmology - the 'canon of sacred number' derived by the mathematicians of the ancient world. The practice of gematria is like setting lyrics to music; in the Bible and other texts significant phrases were carefully and deliberately set to numbers. Although its existence is not widely known to students of Christian Scipture, the practice of gematria throws new light on the meaning of many passages found in the New Testament... Although the practice of gematria has continued unbroken in Hebrew, and is still used today by Orthodox Jewish rabbis, the use of numbers in interpreting the meaning of Christianity's sacred texts was anathemized by Iranaeus and other prominent Church fathers in the second and third centuries, and with the suppression of the Gnostic heresies, the practice of any kind of 'numbers theology' apparently ceased. As Christianity spread to Western Europe, the lingua franca became Latin rather than Koine, the form of Greek spoken and written in the Eastern Mediterranean in the Hellenistic and Roman periods. Near the end of the 4th century, Saint Jerome translated the Greek Scriptures into Latin, with the direct result that every trace of the gematria in the original Koine was lost. Given modern tools for computation and cross-referencing, this long-neglected interpretive practice needs to be examined for the remarkable new light it throws upon the faith of the earliest Christians. It appears that the 'orthodox' were in many cases the heretics!"
- Magdalene's Lost Legacy by Margaret Starbird (Bear & Co., 2003), p. 2-3
"Other often-discussed 'codes' in the Bible relate to gematria,
a method of Torah analysis that assigns number values to letters,
adds them up and interprets the results."

"Midrash is the Hebrew term for commentary, the accumulated insights that interpret not only what is said in the text of the Hebrew Bible but what is unsaid - not only the words used but the number of times they are used. Furthermore, since every Hebrew letter has a numerical equivalent as well, every Hebrew word is also a mathematical sum. This means that some forms of midrash involve the numbers contained in the very letters of the Hebrew text. Matthew's gospel uses all of these forms of midrash." - The Hidden Gospel of Matthew by Ron Miller (SkyLight Paths Pub., 2004), p. xix
"The letter 'G' was introduced in the Old Latin period as a variant of 'C' to distinguish voiced /ɡ/ from voiceless /k/. The recorded originator of 'G' is freedman Spurius Carvilius Ruga, the first Roman to open a fee-paying school, who taught around 230 BC. At this time, 'K' had fallen out of favor, and 'C', which had formerly represented both /ɡ/ and /k/ before open vowels, had come to express /k/ in all environments.
(Wikipedia & ---)
(pronounced /ˈaɪsəsɛfi/; ἴσος isos meaning 'equal' and ψῆφος psephos meaning 'pebble') is the Greek word for the practice of adding up the number values of the letters in a word to form a single number. The early Greeks used pebbles arranged in patterns to learn arithmetic and geometry. A Latin word for 'pebbles' is 'calculi', the origin of the word 'calculate'.
Isopsephy is related to Gematria, the same practice using the Hebrew alphabet, and the ancient number systems of many other peoples (for the Arabic alphabet version, see Abjad numerals, hisab al-jummal). A Gematria of Latin-script languages was also popular in Europe from the Middle Ages to the Renaissance and indeed its legacy remains in numerology and Masonic symbolism today.

ἀεὶ ὁ Θεὸς ὁ μέγας γεωμετρεῖ = 3,1,4,1,5,9: the first six digits of pi 3.14159
In researching the history of Greek isopsephy/isophsephia (gematria) - the alphanumeric quality of a language - we are pointed to Pythagoras, the Pythagoreans, and Plato. There is an ancient Greek motto encoded by Plato: "God is ever a geometer" (ἀεὶ ὁ Θεὸς ὁ μέγας γεωμετρεῖ), whereas, counting the letters of the words (3,1,4,1,5,9) reveals the first six digits of pi (3.14159). This confirms that 'Step 1' of Greek gematria was/is simply counting the number of letters in a word/name/phrase with that number having connections and symbolic meaning7, and that 'Step 2' is the alphanumeric sum of a word/name/phrase with that number having connect74ions and symbolic meaning. Hebrew, Arabic, and English gematrias also use these Steps 1 & 2, i.e. Liberty7Bell4 and John4 Hancock7. July 4th = 7/4 and GOD3=7_4. The simple fact that the words 'GOD' and 'One' have three letters and Christians traditionally think of the One GOD as the Holy4Trinity7 is no 'coincidence'!
“Mere words of natural significance fail to interpret spiritual ideas unless a figurative meaning is added to them. By type and symbol alone can the essence of truth be conveyed. In myth and parable the poet, prophet and religious leader in all times present to us the realizations of their spiritual sense." - Gematria by Bligh Bond & Lea

Note: Since ancient Egypt, the mystics have believed that when we spell we cast a spell.
"One of the techniques for mining the depths of symbolism in our (Freemasonry) rituals is that of applying the doctrines of the literal Kaballa in an examination of some of the key words and symbols presented in the rituals. In many ancient languages, numbers were represented by letters of the alphabet. Mystics concluded that the numerical value of words could be of significance, particularly when two or more seemingly unrelated words had an identical numerical value. The literal Kaballa is a set of techniques that meditatively explore the relationships between letters of ancient alphabets, such as Hebrew, Greek and Latin, and their numerical equivalents." "Although the Hebrew Kaballa is perhaps the most celebrated, there is a rich tradition of Greek isopsephy which utilizes similar techniques, and the Latin alphabet is filled with many examples. Masonry is a treasure trove of Kaballistic wisdom, Albert Pike perhaps being the champion of this research in Masonry." - The Stone Which The Builders Refused by Bro. Gregory H. Peters
"The number 7 appears frequently in Masonic ritual and in other phases throughout the degrees. The 7 liberal arts and sciences are symbolized by 7 steps on the winding staircase. The formulation of the 7 liberal arts and sciences exists in many ancient religious systems where the number 7 holds a special place of veneration. This is especially true in Jewish ritual and many Christian thinkers believed that to gain mastery of them was a means of achieving a greater understanding of God. They are generally said to be the subjects of rhetoric, grammar, geometry, music, mathematics, astronomy, and logic". - Freemasonry, p.40, by Giles Morgan (Fall River, 2009)
Possibly the first story of world religion74 that has been passed through the ages comes from the earliest Egyptian period. The tale of Osiris74 - "Judge of the Dead" - his murder, and his 14 body parts74 involved Isis, Horus, and 74 opposed him including Set, the Ethiopian Queen Aso, and 72 others...
Moses71 - "Prince of Egypt" - went onto Mt. Sinai with his brother71 Aaron and his two sons, and 70 elders - Exodus 24:1. 'Coincidentally', this number of 74 is the only discrepency I found when I compared the Dead Sea Scrolls Masoretic Text. The DSS has Moses, Aaron and his four sons + 70 elders = 76. Huh!
"As Above, So Below" is the ancient Egyptian premise of sacred geometry and it's 'hidden' in The Lord's Prayer with "On Earth as it is in the heavens74".
"Astrology was one of the arts taught at the school at Chartres (France) in the 12th and 13th centuries. The study of astronomy enabled the learned to contemplate the laws of the heavens and the grand design of the Divine Geometer, the Creator. The casting of 'foundation charts' for the cathedrals of Western Europe was an attempt to align the structures and plans for the City of God on Earth with the eternal order of the cosmos as reflected in the movements of the planets. Sacred geometry, designed to reflect the order of the heavenly bodies, is an ancient art and science that was practiced openly in temple architechure for millenia until the Inquisition forced it into occult practice." - p. 82, The Woman with the Alabaster Jar by Margaret Starbird (Bear & Co., 1993)
Sacred geometry is widely known to be a major aspect of Freemasonry. Less widely known, though practiced by many Masons and non-Masons is sacred gematria. Gematria is the Greek word for geometry (Spanish: geometria) and in English it refers to the 'geometry of the language': primarily, the practice of counting the number of letters in a word or phrase and giving that number symbolic meaning, and the practice of assigning a number to a letter with the alphanumeric sum having symbolic meaning. Words/names/phrases with the same sum have a connect74 between74 them. The Bible and Qur'an were written using gematria. Hebrew/Aramaic, Greek, and Arabic are all alphanumeric languages that were being used centuries before the separate Hindu-Arabic numeric system began to appear c. 700 AD. Ancient scribes writing and reading scripture couldn't help but think of letters, words, and phrases also as numbers and looked for natural connections. In Greek, gematria was/is known as isopsephy, and in Arabic, was/is known as hisab al-Jummal/Abjad numerals.
Simple English Gematria would be the practice of encoding A=1, B=2... Z=26. The only irregularity in the code is that the circle can be the 15th letter or a zerO, i.e. GOD=7_4 (7O4=GOD). 7/4=July 4 or 7 April: United States Independence Day is no 'coincidence', its alignment was the result of Grand Master Masons Benjamin Franklin (PA), George Washington (VA & Continental Army), John Hancock (MA), Robert Livingston, Roger Sherman, and others. This is why the US was the first country to write the date month first: month/day/year. G. Washington - perhaps the most famous Mason47 in history - arrived in Cambridge, Massachusetts on July 2, 1775 and took command of the Continental Army. On 7/4/1775, Washington declared in just his second General Orders, "The Troops of the UNITED PROVINCES of North America." He would eventually have 74 generals, 33 were Mason47s. Liberty7 letters Bell4. There were 74 representatives chosen to attend the Constitutional Convention from 12 states (55 would actually attend, Rhode Island didn't participate) and 13 known Masons would eventually sign it. The Constitution's 7 Articles were written on 4 pages. Federal7 City4 (Washington DC) was designed as a one hundred74 square mile square.
This is also one of the reasons why the US is the only country still using Fahrenheit: 74°F is ideally comfortable. One of the reasons the US still uses miles instead of kilometers is that a tropical storm becomes a hurricane when sustained winds reach 74 mph (Hurri.74 Katrina74 reached 174 mph). The US Forever774Stamp features the Liberty7Bell4. The stamp thus encodes GOD=7_4 through 'Step 1': 7 letters + 4 letters and 'Step 2': alphanumeric sum equals 74.
In the State of Pennsylvania, 5th Graders are taught that Liberty7 Bell4 represents 7/4 = July 4th.
Outside of the US, 7/4=7 April. This day is highly significant since it is the day in 30 AD or the original Good Friday 7/4/783 AUC / 14 Nisan 3790 HC - the first full day of Passover - that Jesus74 was on the Cross74. GOOD=7__4 and Good Friday=74=G7+O+O+D4+F6+R18+I9+D4+A1+Y25.

The preacher74/pastor74 rode into Al Quds74 on a donkey74/burro74. Jesus was born on Satuday April 17, 6 BC / 17.4.748 AUC / 29 Nisan 3755 HC; the square root of 17.4 = 4.17 .

"The three lodges (out of the four that came together to form the first Grand Lodge) were probably composed of operative Masons, and numbered about fifteen each, while the 4th Lodge had a role of 70 members and was the speculative Lodge, to which all the leading men of the Craft belonged in the early days, including Payne, Anderson and Desaguliers, and a large and influential body of noblemen".

"Nicomachus (of Gerasa - 2nd century mathematician) was also intrigued by the pseudo-science called gematria that was not Pythagorean, but originated with the ancient Babylonians and survived in ancient Greece and the Hellenistic period. In gematria, each letter of the alphabet had a numerical value. A word could be spelled in numbers. (Assyrian ruler) Sargon II (727-707 BC), in the century before Pythagoras' birth, had the wall of Khorsabad built to a measurement that was the numerical equivalent of his name - 16,283 cubits. (This is history's 1st recorded use of gematria.) The name of the Gnostic divinity Abraxas had the numerical value of 365, the number of days in a solar year". - The Music of Pythagoras - How an Ancient Brotherhood Cracked the Code of the Universe and Lit the Path from Antiquity to Outer Space p. 189, by Kitty Ferguson (Walker, 2008)

"Bezalel, who designed the tabernacle to contain the Ark of the Covenant, could, according to Hebrew myth, 'use letters as instruments of power'.

The Temple Menorah of 7 candles is shown here. It contains the GOD=7_4 Code with the fact that the middle candle - representing the Sun - is the 4th from the right or left. The other six lamps represent the Moon, Mercury, Venus, [Sun] Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. These were known as the sacred 7 Planets, 7 Luminaires, or 7 Heavens. Today, they're known as the 7 Classical Planets or 7 Naked-Eye Planets. Also, note that there are 4 branches holding the 7 lamps (the outside two - #1 & #7 - are coupled together, as are #2 & #6, #3 & #5, and #4 is alone).

"We can see that the artificial language used by the ancient writers to conceal their initiatic secrets was essentially a language of numbers hidden from view, beneath the words, by means of gematria.

Some of Freemasory's most enduring secrets are thereby hidden." - Peter Bull, masoncode.com

The Gospel74 according74 to St.74 John 19:19 states that placed above the Messiah's head on the Cross was a placard inscribed with: "Jesus the Nazarean the King of the Judeans" in Hebrew or Aramaic, Greek, and Latin. (KJV "Hebrew", recent translations "Aramaic".) The English language evolved using Latin letters. 2,000 years ago, Classical LATIN had no 'small letters' and used 23 letters: there was no U, W, or J. Jesus' name in Latin at the time of the Crucifixion was spelled: IESVS, which now equals 74 in Simple English Gematria. This spelling was 1,700 years before the modern English alphabet! How does one explain this? 'Coincidence'?! If so, consider these 'coincidences'...
The Bible states that two robbers were crucified on each side of Jesus, but the Romans didn't punish thieves with crucifixion. The two crucified with Jesus were undoubtedly Zealots and were also found guilty of sedition. They may have had placards also...

Not only was King James I of the United Kingdom a Freemason - a Grand Master Mason (GMM33) of the Lodge - all or most of the 47 experts that he appointed to the committees to produce the Authorized Version of the Bible were Masons and encoded sacred gematria in their work. The first printing of the King Iames Version (KJV) in 1611 did NOT use the letter J. Thus, there were 25 letters and GOD=7_4=25=G7+O14+D4. Christ=74=C3+H8+R17+I9+S18+T19.

The Free4masonry7 logo of the letter G within the square & compass is commonly known to stand for 'GOD' and 'geometry'. But it also stands for 'gematria' and the '7th letter within a 4-sided rectangle'. Having the 7th letter contained within the 4-sided rectangle to represent G-d is probably the simplest and best example anywhere of using gematria!

The "666" question of The Revelation Chapter 13 has puzzled many since it was first written over 1,900 years ago! As stated above, the entire Bible - both the Hebrew/Aramaic (Jewish Old Testament) and Greek (Christian 'New' Testament) - was written using gematria/isopsephy. The easiest method/'Step 1' of gematria is counting the number of letters in a word or name. Therefore, consider the following...
Ronald6 Wilson6 Reagan6: the "666 1st Beast"/Antichrist whose actions were the opposite of the Christ: he helped the rich while neglecting the poor, was very prejudice, his "Voodoo Economics" reduced taxes mainly on the rich while greatly increasing military spending causing HUGE Federal deficits. Reagan "was ruler of the world, he lied to all nations - the Great Deceiver - and was wounded yet lived." - Revelation Ch 12-13
Ronnie and Nancy Reagan were professional actors (albeit not very good ones) and they starred in only one movie together: Hellcats of the Navy. This fulfills the prophecy re: "And I saw a beast rising out of the sea"* - The Revelation 13:1.

Gordon once said that he thought that it was ironic that he could not put his name to the script due to a blacklist that the actual movie's star Ronald Reagan denied ever existed (to Joseph Alsop in 1980)." "The source that this movie was based on was a book by Charles A. Lockwood and Hans Christian Adamson entitled *Hellcats of the Sea, the title of which also became this movie's working title."
Reagan was born on 2/6; Matthew 2:6 (KJV), "for out of thee shall come a Governor, that shall rule my people Israel." Reagan was Governor of California before becoming the 40th US president.
Uniquely, Reagan had the National Christmas Tree lit for his Inauguration.
When Ronald and Nancy Reagan bought their California ranch, its address was 666 St. Cloud Road. They immediately had it changed to 668.
Reagan died on 6/5; Matthew 6:5, "And when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, that they may be seen by men. Truly, I say to you, they have received their reward."
George6 Walker6 Bush Jr.6: the "2nd Beast"/Antichrist whose actions were the opposite of the Christ: he helped the rich while neglecting the poor, he greatly increased military spending. He "exercised all the power/authority of the 1st Beast". Bush Jr. made "fire come down from the heavens in sight of everyone" (Rev 13:13) with the "destruction of Babylon" (Iraq War) - Rev Ch 14-16, 18. Note: The Bible does NOT specify that the "2nd Beast" be identified with 666. Bush '41' - his father - has always called Bush '43' "Junior".
He was president on 6/6/06. 6:66 am = 7:06. Bush Jr. and Nancy Reagan were born on 7/6; Matt 7:6, "Don't give what is holy to dogs, don't throw your pearls to swine, they'll trample them and then turn on you."
Of course, Rev. 13:3, "its mortal wound was healed" would not apply to Bush Jr. However, just one month after becoming president, Reagan received a severe gun shot wound, yet lived. Therefore, Reagan was the "1st Beast" and Bush Jr. was the "2nd Beast".
Rev. 13:17, "no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark (666)". Well, for many decades - at least since World War II - US currency has been the primary 'global currency'...
United6 States6 Dollar6: the "666 mark of the Beast that everyone must have to buy or sell with" - The Revelation Chapter 13. On the back of the $1 Dollar Bill, the #13 is encoded 13 times, i.e. ANNUIT COEPTIS(13), E PLURIBUS UNUM(13) - "Out of many, one" - has 13 letters representing the Original United States.
IN GOD WE TRUST(12): 12 lunar months/12 adjusted months in Roman Calendar, 12 year orbit of Jupiter, 12 years in Chinese Zodiac, 12 Days of Christmas, 12 hours on a clock. 12 is the number of time: 7 aspects of 'regular time' + 4 aspects of 'hypertime' + imaginary time. This is mirrored in the 12 months of the Gregorian Calendar: 7 months with thirty-one days, 4 with thirty, and February's twenty-eight (7x4).
Donald Trump = 666 using the Evil 48 Code of A=49, B50...Z74.
D52+O63+N62+A49+L60+D52 + T68+R66+U69+M61+P64 = 666
There are a couple million words and names in the English language and I've selectively concentrated on just a few with gematric sums of 74 & 64 so far. Let me add some other gematric sums...
Is it a 'coincidence' that there are 50 United States and America = 50 (A1+M13+E5+R18+I9+C3+A1)?
Bible=30, Ark=30, Bread=30, Peace=30, Eagle=30
Above=30/45, Day=30. The lunar cycle is 29.53 days. The Hebrew, Arabic, and Chinese calendars are still lunar calendars. The 365.24 days solar calendar equals 30.43 days per month.
Noah=23/38, boat=23/38 - Suggestive Gematria p. by J. P. Hughes (Holmes, 2008)
Noah's Ark and Solomon's Temple were 30 cubits high (Genasis 6:15, 1 Kings 6:2). This was a symbolic reference to the Moon's cycle (above).
"Is it a coincidence that the (Hebrew) gematria of David, Dallet Vav Dallet, like 'gold', has the unusually low value of 14?" - Gematria - The Numbers of Infinity by Marke Pawson, p. 80
Marke Pawson wrote an excellent book, however, his analysis of 'sacred gematria' pertains only to Hebrew and Greek. The name David=40. This is one of many examples where Simple English Gematria is stronger than the original Hebrew in relevance to sacred scripture! How does 40 apply to David? Even non-Bible readers know the story of David vs. Goliath. "For 40 days the Philistine (Goliath) came forward and challenged the Israelites." - 1 Samuel 17:16. It was on the 40th day that the teenage David answered Goliath's challenge. "And the time that King David reigned over Israel was 40 years." - 1 Kings 2:12.
Is it a coincidence that the gematria of both Magen & David in English is 40?
"The secret laws were passed on from teacher to student for thousands of years and they were never written down. For centuries, the written divulgence of these secrets had been forbidden out of 'necessity' because they could have been wrongly used by the profane and material-minded masses." - The Secret Doctrine, p. , by Helen P. Blavatsky (Theosophical Univ. Press, 1977)
An example of the secret law/'7_4 Code' of Simple English Gematria being "wrongly used by the profane and material-minded" was when Pres. George Walker Bush Jr. first asked the US Congress to authorize and fund the War In Iraq. His initial74 request was for $7.4 billion.
age=13=A1+G7+E5, teenager begins at age 13, bar mitzvah at age 13, he=13
Eve in Hebrew =19
S=19 (the Snake/Serpent)
Why the convergence on #19? The ancients used both lunar and solar calendars. They observed that every 19 years, the lunar months and solar year converge, i.e. if July 4th is a full Moon, it would be 19 years before 7/4 would be a full Moon again. This is known as the http://wikipedia.org/wiki/Metonic_cycle
bar=21, you must be 21 to enter a bar, ben=21 ('bar' [Aramaic] and 'ben' [Hebrew] mean 'son of')
Jews57, Sion57 (Zion64), Mary57, Magdalen57, Rose57, George57
goddess58/73, science58, design58, night58, star58, astro58, father58, Joseph58/73, German58, Albert58 (Einstein)
Christian = 101, God's will = 101, Tree of Life = 101
“We know that the number 153 is related to the Gospel Age in that the 153 great fishes of John 21:11 typified the multitudinousness seed through the Messiah, as promised to Jacob, “…in thee (physical seed) shall all the families of the earth be blessed.” (Gen 28:14) "The Gospel Age preached The Kingdom of God153 and saw the completion and preservation of The Oracles of God153, The Holy Word153. At its commencement the promised Seed of the Woman153 came as The Revealed Son153, The Branch – Jesus153, and The True Light153 of the world, making available The Water of Life153 to The Christians153 who became The Children of God153 by belief in Him and His Sacrifice on their behalf. During this period also The House of Israel153 and The Great People153Of Joseph's Line153 have been a Hidden Witness153 to the faithfulness of a
Almighty God in keeping His promises to their fathers. In the final outcome The House of Jacob153 is to become A Purified Israel153 and the British Language153 possibly The Last Language153 of the Age.” - Les & Nella Harrison
The 153 fish count of John 21:6, "Jesus said, 'Cast the net on the right side of(153) the boat"
T20+H8+E5 + R18+I9+G7+H8+T20 + S19+I9+D4+E5 + O15+F6 = 153
The Tower of Babel (Ziggurat of Babylon) story appears to have some illogic in it! Genasis 11:1 states, "All the peoples of earth were of one language and of one purpose". This comes just two verses after "there were many tribes and many languages" - Genasis 10:31. This is the Bible's BIGGEST contradiction! In fact, everyone was NOT united in one language and that was not what was in "defiance of God". Trying to build a tower up to heaven and into the domain of God is what was in defiance then and today. Don't confuse 'heaven' and 'heavens' - heaven is an idyllic state of mind where one is close to GOD and experiencing great love and heavens is the sky, low-Earth-orbit, our solar system, deep space.
The ancient Egyptians were building great structures centuries before the first Babylonian Ziggurat. Freemasons hold the Tower of Babel story in very high regard because from that lesson, we learn the importance of proper design in our endevours, and are led to 'reconstruct' the One Holy Tongue that God used to create Earth: English. Masons understand that God - YHWH64 - is the Grand Architect of the Universe (G.A.O.T.U.64).
The 7 aspects of the Primary Language of the Plan-it, then and now...
1. It must connect74 to Nature. This sacred geometry is most profoundly evident in English74! The ancients with the naked eye saw 7 moving objects74 in the heavens74 - the 7 Classical Planets - and 4 don't cast shadows74 on Earth (Venus does)/4 can't be easily seen during daytime (Venus can be) (today, we recognize 4 as rocky). They were well aware of the lunar month (moonth) being 29 1/2 days and the 4 phases of the moon being roughly 7 days (~7.4 days) each. (The Egyptians rounded this off to 4 7-day weeks in a month* with 13 months in a year.) A lunar year + 7 day week + 4 days = solar year. The Big Dipper has 7 stars with 4 in the quadrilateral bowl of the ladle. Its 4th star in the middle is its brightest. The Big Dipper points to the North Star which is at the tip of the handle of the Little Dipper which is also 7 stars with 4 in its quadrilateral bowl. Orion is 7 stars with 4 making up his shoulders & feet (three stars in Orion's Belt). 7 stars of Pleaides/7 Sisters.
"As Above, So Below", "On Earth as it is in the heavens", "Anytime an idea is connected to Nature, it's not only logical, it's inevitable".
This combination of 7 & 4 was sacred to the ancient Sumerians who were the first to keep astronomical records. They built their ziggurats to be 7 levels high (6 stories + rooftop observatory) and were the first to keep track of the 4 seasons: their first zodiac. The ancient Egyptians also recognized the sacred combination of 7 & 4 in the heavens and they, like the Sumerians based their royal cubits74 on 7 palms x 4 fingers = 28 digits. (Regular cubits are 6p x 4f = 24 digits.) The first Step-Pyramid of Pharaoh Djoser (architect Imhotep), Giza Pyramids, Sphinx, Temple at Luxor, as well as all sacred ancient Egyptian monuments and temples were designed using the royal cubits of 7p x 4f. The Mesopotamians, Egyptians and Hebrews used both regular cubits and royal cubits.
The ancient Hebrews fled from their captivity in Egypt, but their monotheistic religion was greatly influenced by Egyptian religion which was based on Nature. The mystical symbolism of the menorah74's 7 lamps is their representing the sacred 7 Luminaires or what we now call the 7 Classical Planets: Moon, Mercury, Venus, Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. The Hanukkiah9 with its 9 lamps including its elevated shemash (lighting lamp/candle) was GOD's way of adding Neptune and Uranus which wouldn't be discovered for almost 2,000 years after the first Hanukkah.
2. Linguistic Theory of Left-to-Right. Kaballist Jews claim "Hebrew is the One Holy Tongue that God used to create Earth" - Zoehar58/73. Muslim Sufis74 make the same claim about Arabic. But both these Middle Eastern languages flow right-to-left, which is in opposition to the "As Above, So Below" relationship that their respective ancient scribes based this directional choice on. You see, the ancient Hebrew (including Moses) and Arabic scribes (Muhammad74 couldn't read or write) based the direction of their written language on what they saw in the heavens74: the Sun, Moon, and five 'wandering stars' (planets) were obviously moving right-to-left when the observer was facing the North Star. They believed the world was stationary and flat. But the Greeks and later the Romans (who got much of their knowledge from the Greeks) and possibly the earlier Egyptians believed the world was round and that it was rotating left-to-right; which is, of course, correct. Therefore, Greek and Latin were written and read left-to-right.
The letters from most languages served as numbers until c. 600 AD when the Hindu-Arabic numeral system was introduced. It's quite the convenient phenomenon that for a couple hundred years now, we have a globally agreed on numerical system (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9), and of course, these "universal numbers" are read left-to-right. Written music is also globally accepted and it flows left-to-right. Therefore, we can safely assume that the "One Holy Tongue that God used to create Earth" must flow left-to-right.
3. There must be a pictographic (hieroglyphic) aspect of the alphabet
In English, the spoken word is connected to the written word which is based on its alphabet which is phonetic, pictographic, and has a numerical order based on Genasis, Nature, and science.
A: Alpha is a chevron ^ Angle; it points Above - "As Above, So Below". Ascend, Angel, Adam was Alpha
B: Butt, Breasts, Boobs. b: bottom; the loop is at the bottom.
Cc: Crescent, Circle, Circumference.
D: Dome. d: down; the loop is down.
E: Elevation (three levels of elevation seen in E).
F: Flag (F looks like a Flag on a pole).
G is the Golf swing.
H: Horizon. h: hill
I: I (me) is represented by one line.
J : (the last letter of the modern 26-letter English language)
K: is a stick-figure Kicking.
Ll: line, parallel, vertical.
O: MOON symbolizes the Sun & Moon coming together to begin an eclipse. O is the 15th letter and the full moon appears on the 15th day of the lunar month.
Pp: UP, the loop of the p is at the top
R: Reach, Receive
S: Sign/Symbol/Shape for Serpent/Snake that Slithers/Slides/Strikes & hisses on the Soil/Sand and Sheds its Skin in Story at Start of Scriptures. S+he=She, S+in=Sin, S+on=Son.
Tt: Tau, trestle, intersect. t is the Cross, i.e. Christ, Rabbit=Rabbi t, Apostle Peter.
U: points UP like Sun. U is written by 'starting at sea/ground level, dips Under and then back up. Cup.
V: Valley, Vagina, Virgin, Venus
W : Double U. Wedge
X: Xmas. The Cross on its side - Jesus being in control of it. The St. Andrews Cross.
If anyone can add explanations of how the English alphabet is a collection of pictographs, please do.
4. The One Holy Tongue must be phonetic. English is phonetic. We shape our lips to form an O to pronounce O and then write O.
5. There must be 'historical relevance', e.g. Everything starts with Eve, believe=belly Eve, S=S he, Sin=S in & Son=S on (mark on Cain). t = Cross as in Christ, Robert=robber t, and (Easter) Rabbit=Rabbi t, Apostle Peter, etc.
6. An alphanumeric code/gematria must exist that has strong symbolic meaning. Simple674English774Gematria874 definitely exists.
7. English has become the world's primary language - it's not by 'coincidence'. In countries where English is not the primary language, e.g. China & India, English is taught as the 'second language'.
"Gematria An occult method of turning words or phrases into a numerical equivalent by assigning numbers to letters. It was used by practioners of the Kaballa, for whom Hebrew words or phrases with the same numerical total are said to be symbolically related. For example, the Hebrew word 'Messiah' consisting of the four letters m-sh-i-ch totals 358, as does the word 'nachash' n-ch-sh which means the brass serpent of Moses. Some Christian Kaballists in the Middle Ages, therefore believed that the image of the brass serpent was a prefiguration of Christon the Cross and, as a result, in medieval iconography Christ is sometimes depicted as a serpent entwined around a crucifix.

: Sacred Gematria - the Universal Language of God
Gematria is a form of Divine Communication that transcends the limitations of language and brings one into a direct perception of the Divine Reality.
Gematria is the pure language of the Divine. It is where language, number and symbol converge to communicate eternal truths. The real beauty of Gematria is that it transcends all sectarianism and personal opinion. Once the foundations of the Divine Language are grasped by the student of this Sacred Science, one can directly perceive divine realities that are self-existent and self-explanatory, leaving little room for faulty notions and the vain opinions of the human intellect.
Come begin the journey of a lifetime and discover the most sublime secrets of this Sacred Universe. May all who seek the truth, find the truth and live in the light of truth.

Messianic Hebrew Gematria by Moshe Zew
"In Hebrew, each letter possesses a numerical value. Gematria is the calculation of the numerical equivalence of letters, words, or phrases, and, on that basis, gaining insight into interrelation of different concepts and exploring the interrelationship between words and ideas... The assumption behind this technique is that numerical equivalence is not coincidental. Since the world was created through God's 'speech', each letter represents a different creative force. Thus, the numerical equivalence of two words reveals an internal connection between the creative potentials of each one. (see Tanya, Sha'ar HaYichud VeHaEmunah, chapters 1 and 12.)"
