Extreme Cut Out Jeans and Gematria

I saw this article the other day and had to laugh. Carmar Denim just announced the “extreme cut out jeans”. It sells for $168 and is of course sold out. $168 is 123 pounds in English currency. . This story was posted on 5/3 the 123rd day of the year. “Extreme cut out jeans”=247 in Reverse Ordinal (22+3+7+9+22+14+22=99(extreme) 24+6+7=37(cut) 12+6+7=25 (out) 17+22+26+13+8=86 (jeans)=247. 247 is 19 x 13.

12 Senators On The 12th Write a Letter to the FCC

Recently, I saw a story about 12 senators sending a letter to the FCC about the Sinclair Broadcasting company..

This article is full of coincidences. 12 Senators on the 12th of April. April 12th is the 102 day of the year. 102 is 12 in numerology. In Gematria,  FCC=12 in English Ordinal. F is the 6th letter, C is the 3rd. 6+3+3=12. Think of the symbolism of the number 12. 12 months in a year. 12 disciples of Jesus, 12 tribes of Israel, 12  signs of the Zodiac. Time is measured in 2 groups of 12, the 12 labors of Heracles. The 12 step program. 12 is the square root of 144. 144,000 is a significant number for religious people.


The Numbers Behind the Story of Juli Briskman Flipping Off President Trump

Gematria is the practice of coding numbers into words.  In the beginning, according to the Book of Formation, which is similar to the story in Genesis, God merged the word and letter with the number. In Genesis, each verse begins: “And God said”. God speaks the world into existence over the course of six numbered days, before resting on the seventh day and making it holy.


The Coincidence Numbers

Gematria is the practice of coding numbers into words.  In the beginning, according to the Book of Formation, which is the story of Genesis, God merged the word,letter with the number. In Genesis, each verse begins: “And God said”. God speaks the world into existence over the course of six numbered days, before resting on the seventh day and making it holy.


The Real Meaning of “26”

In Kabbalah, the central belief is God created the world with language, by combining the number with the letter with the word. This is expressed in the foundational text of Kabbalah, the Sepher Yetzirah, or in English, The Book of Formation. In its opening paragraph, it states, in reference to God creating the world, “He created His Universe by three forms of expression: Numbers, Letters and Words”. This belief about creation from The Book of Formation is in line with the beginning of the Holy Bible, which begins with Genesis, where God speaks the world into existence over the course of six numbered days, before resting on the seventh day and making it holy.


Osher Lectures on Rumi and the Qur’an

BRATTLEBORO—The Brattleboro Chapter of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) announces the first in its Spring series of lectures, to be held on Monday, April 2. The lectures’ subject is “Reading the Qur’an with Rumi.”

Jalaluddin Rumi, the thirteenth-century Muslim contemplative who is today one of the best-selling poets in America, considers the Qur’an a map of the self and the Qur’anic stories to contain wisdom that can lead to a life of happiness and flourishing. In this Monday’s lecture, Amer Latif, a professor of religious studies at Marlboro College, will give an overview of the Qur’an, and of Rumi and his thought.

Marlboro College Doing Just Fine?!

This morning’s article in the Reformer about Marlboro College was odd in a number of ways. First, they say they have a “structural deficit” of 3-4 million dollars a year. But they say that the endowment is sufficient to cover this loss. The endowment is only about $40 million. The 990 for 2015 showed a loss of $4,000,000 in total assets, indicating that this $4 million a year loss has been going on for awhile.
