JESUS, the literal name above all names-the King above all Kings, the Prince of Peace. Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.
If Gematria, the study of numbers, plays a very important role here…Logic dictates that it must Begin and End with this MOST HOLY NAME.
So, since the original gospel of Luke was recorded in Greek, let’s just check and see what the Greek letters spelling JESUS can tell us, if anything….
In Greek, the name of Jesus is spelled I H S O U S (its, eta, sigma, omicron, upsilon, sigma). Each Greek letter has a numerical value, so if we then take each letter in the name of Jesus and add them up, the total comes to 888.
Now, continuing our discussion, 888 is also a Triad (Triangle) number, meaning it is divisible by the number 3. (888/3=296)
The Arabic number 8 is derived and synonymous with the symbol for infinity, (the number 8 on its side.) It is also synonymous with “the first day of the week”, following a 7-day week.
All of the gospels tell us specifically that Jesus rose from the dead on the first day of the week, the 8th day…
The Hebrew ritual of circumcision had to be done on the 8th day…(Genesis 17:12)
The “Transfiguration” of Jesus took place exactly 8 days after He first announced His future sufferings…
The Resurrection is the 8th “great sign” recorded in John’s Gospel…
The three Greek Words, LORD, JESUS, and CHRIST- are all gematria multiples of 8. Furthermore, the New Testament writers uses them in Exactly 8 combinations: 1) Lord 2) Jesus 3) Christ 4) Lord Jesus 5) Lord Christ 6) Jesus Christ 7) Christ Jesus, and 8) Lord Jesus Christ.
Clearly, the number 8 is the Biblical numerical symbol for infinity (eternal life), resurrection from the dead, and spiritual and physical renewal. Again, all things are numbered according to God. It is just a matter of “cracking the Code”…
By “breaking the code” you can create and discover a New Way of Life, am image of a New World, and the Paradise of God.
By eliminating the old way of numbering people, and giving them Freedom, you become a Servant of God, and Jesus will work through you…On the other hand, by giving them no choice, you have imposed evil on people…Deceived those who are even unaware…Educating people is most important…Being ministers and Saints is what God wants in His Kingdom.
“For the perfecting of the Saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the Body of Christ: Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ…”
