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.
If you have not read the story of creation from Genesis, God begins each day by making a verbal command, “And God said”, then bringing something new into the world, from light, to water, to land, to stars, to the sun and moon, to plant life, to living creatures, etc., before concluding with his last creation, mankind, who is brought into existence in the 26th verse of the Bible, on the 6th day.
In Gematria, God=26. G is the 7th letter, o is the 15th and d is the 4th. 7+15+4=26.God created man. Man created the alphabet. There are 26 letters in the alphabet. There are 206/26 bones in human body. In numerology, the study of numbers, the “0” doesn’t count. Bones=26 Reverse Reduction. Letter=26. Bones give structure to the body and letters make up the alphabet. Spell=26 in Reverse Reduction and also Read=26 in Reverse Reduction and it wasn’t until recent time that most of the people learned to read. This used to be the domain of the priests and educated class, not the majority of the population. As I mentioned, God sums to 26, so does YHWH , Adonai(another common name for God in Old Testament meaning “My Lord”), Babylon (the birth place of Kabbalah and language / letters), Thoth (EgyptianGod of reading, writing, mathematics, thought and more), Greek (who wrote New Testament that is 260-chapters), Zeus (Greek God), Apollo (son of Zeus), Emanuel(Christian name for Jesus), Abraham (Patriarch of Abrahamic Religions, Judaism, Christianity and Islam),Joseph (spiritual figure in Abrahamic religions), and Torah (the first five books of the Bible given to humanity 26- generations from creation)
Gematria is a very deep, spiritual, occult practice. Confucius said “Signs and symbols rule the world, not rules and laws”
