Jacob was a son of Isaac(grandson of Abraham) and was born about 2,000 BCE.He was the fraternal twin of Esau(his older brother).His name Jacob means
heel catcher or conniver which he was both. His named was changed to Israel after he "struggled" with a messenger of God one night( and btw got his
ass kicked)...and of course Israel means struggles with Yahweh.He had many misadventures and eventually married and had 12 sons.There was a very
definitive pattern to many things about the Sons of Israel and their "names".This is the birth order:
The names had meanings however more importantly those names were also NUMBERS.In about 300 BCE (almost 2,000 years after Israels sons) Hebrew became a
alphanumeric language where letters are also numbers and by calculating them is called gematria.Names are significant in that they are the nature and
character of the thing/person named.Their word names meanings were important however it was the numbers that are the real meanings and purpose(even if
the purposes aren't know).
The "lists" of the names and tribes of the Sons of Israel have a few variations.Here's why....Joseph gave his "birthright"(he didn't need it...that's
another Israel story) to his two sons Manasseh and Ephraim.Levi is left out in some of the sons of Israel list because they were the priest tribe and
the priest and had no "son" inheritance.He is is not in the list below.
As for the meaning of the numbers.While the Israelites were encamped in the wilderness they made what is called the breastplate of judgement for the
priest(Aaron) to wear when he stood before the ark.On the breastplate were the 12 stones representing each tribe of Israel arranged according to birth
order(omitting Levi and Joseph and adding Manasseh and Ephraim).It was arranged from the "priests" left to right in 4 rows of 3
Here are the names gematria numbers in the order of the breastplate.
This may look arbitrary and to the Israelites it was.They had no idea those names were numbers also.They followed a very specific pattern when
encamped in the wilderness for 40 years but ...that's another story and numbers.The sum of all these numbers are 3700...which is a multiple of the
key number 37(37x100) The order of these name/numbers is very significant.
The bottom rows (12-11-10) sums to 888(btw so do 5 other combinations of all the names of the sons when including Levi and Joseph)
888 is a multiple of 37
888 is not just an ordinary number .It is also the number of a very significant name.....Jesus whose real Hebrew name (transliteration) is
Yahoshua.The new testimony was written in Greek.The name Yahoshua in Greek is written Iesous and mashiach(messiah) is christos.The Greek "gematria"
(called isopsephia) calculates the number of his name.(btw christos is a title name not a family name).
The 3rd row plus the 1st name in the 2nd row(12-11-10-7)=1480
and of course that makes names 4-7-8-9-10-11-12 sum =2368
..and again now all names 888, 1480 and 2368 are a multiple of 37
The remaining 5 names sum=1332..and is a multiple of 37 ...37x36=1332
Note that 1332/2=666
Just one of the many"non diabolical" meanings of Revelation 13:18 infamous number 666
and there's MORE!
Notice every other "name"(even-odd) sums=1850
This is only scratching the surface of the math "signs" that are deeply embedded in the names of the Sons of Israel.The fact is the sons of Israel are
NOT about the genetic nation of Israel.(which does not exist anymore having been absorbed into many nations for almost 3,000 years).Israel is an
archetype of ALL mankind.Israel means struggles against God.Which is a perfect succinct description of mankind.
The old and new testimony were"written" for one purpose only.To testify of Yahoshua which means....Yahweh(the creator God) is salvation.Salvation
means deliverance and it's a process not an event.The scriptures purpose is NOT a manual of how to live a "holy" life.That has been proven over and
over for many centuries to be futile.Yahoshua's main discourse was a proclamation (he was NOT teaching how to be holy).The "coming" (the entering) of
the Kingdom of the creator God by and through Yahweh's salvation/deliverance.
The "many are called" religious believe the "book" (the bible) is Gods word.(and of course cherry pick what is or isn't to fit their religious
beliefs). However the creator God has used it as a testimony of his ultimate purpose for ALL mankind not just those that think they are "special" and
are the chosen few.
This undeniable placement of math of the name of Yahwehs salvation in those significant names of the Tribes of Israel in patterns that are so
prevalent serve as "sign" to the truth of the testimony.It has NOTHING to do with ANY religion.It has NOTHING to do with numerology or cabal or any
false mysticism.There are no doctrines in the numbers just pure and very simple math(on the surface but infinitely complex beneath) and so simple a
child could figure it out yet the religious have not seen it or they would exploit it to serve their religion or deny it...whatever suits their
The testimony of the old and new testimony scriptures are Yahoshua mashiach.....and that's all it is.Nothing more.Nothing can be added to it.It's all
in the names.
