So called Christian Ministers Promoting Numerology?

Many years ago as a non-believer I read books on numerology. This book was one of them.

It's horrible when I see preachers going down occult numerology highway!

There are so many of them too. Missler is one of the biggest culprits. Remember how I said I recognized occult writings in so much of what these false teachers have to offer it comes with this numerology stuff too.

I read books that told me the esoteric meaning of every number, combination of numbers and the infusion of numerology in "magic". Remember two important parts of numerology include counting the numbers of letters in words and also assigning a numerical value to different letters.  All sorts of numbers supposedly had meaning from the number of letters in your name to the date of your birth so when these types strip down the bible counting the number of this and that in the Bible and discuss sacred numbers, it creeps me out.

From Stuff Fundies Like [not an endorsement] says this of the video above:

"This guy’s premise is apparently that God has left secret codes consisting of seven(ish) words and phrases hidden throughout the King James Version as “proof” that it is the most pure version and that all other translations are just not nearly as…codey.

Hoggard is basically practicing numerology on the Bible, adding the number of times certain words occur, detecting patterns via numbers in the Bible chosen at whim.

He has other youtube videos where he goes on about the "AMAZING NUMERICAL PATTERNS IN THE BIBLE!"

All this was very familiar to me:

What of those who attach numbers to letters, hey some are more tricky and do it with HEBREW LETTERS! See where I am going with this?

That looks like a giant eyeball behind him.

When he refers to the Gematria, [4:54] that word was not new to me in the occult or via the halls of numerology....

Did you know another name for Gematria, was HEBREW NUMEROLOGY?

Missler is a smart guy, probably with an IQ in the upper echelons outdoing most Mensa members which is why he is probably so able to confuse so many!  Let's just strip this down so the average person can understand who has never even seen this stuff.

Is the practice of NUMEROLOGY of any flavor godly? NO

Numerology is simply another divination method, using numbers to do prophecy and find the esoteric meaning of things. When I did it, often I combined it with astrology. I have repented of these things.

So why are so called Christian ministers partaking of these things?

One way they scam people with now, is they take occult things of a jewish flavor, and say they are holy and jewish so they must be okay! These are the jewish fables warned about in the Bible. As I have warned on this blog endless times, Babylon is in every false religion of the world and that includes today's false Judaism which rejects Jesus Christ. Every religion that is Babylonian has ties to witchcraft of various flavors and sorts. 

People are fooled because the Judaism of today is infiltrated with everything Babylonian, with the Jesus Christ denying Talmud, Midrash and Kabbalah. It is not the same as the Judaism of the OT. It is another branch of Mystery Babylon.  So they call something "Hebrew" even something that has direct divination connected to it like the Gematria, and call it holy and tell Christians this is a way to describe God's Word.

Why not just read God's Word rather then sitting there counting the numbers of letters in a word?

I encountered the Gematria in the occult. For newbies to this blog,  I am an ex-Catholic as well as ex- Unitarian Universalist who was into Theosophy and aspects of the occult before I was born again and became a Christian and renounced all these things}

Aleister Crowley even named one of his books after the GEMATRIA:

In another on the Qabalah , he described the basics of numerology:

The methods of discovering Dogma from sacred Words are also numerous and important: I may mention:—

(a) The Doctrine of Sympathies: drawn from the total Numeration of a Word, when identical with, or a Multiple of Submultiple of, or a Metathesis of, that of another Word.
(b) The Method of finding the Least Number of a Word, by adding (and re- adding) the Digits of its total Number, and taking the corresponding Key of the Taro as a Key to the Meaning of the Word.
(c) The Method of Analogies drawn from the Shape of the Letters.
(d) The Method of Deductions drawn from the Meanings and Correspondences of the letters.
(e) The Method of Acrostics drawn from the Letters. This Mode is only valid for Adepts of the highest Grades, and then under quite exceptional and rare Conditions.
(f) The Method of Transpositions and Transmutations of the Letters, which suggest Analogies, even when they fail to explain in direct Fashion.
All these and their Varieties and Combinations, with some other more abstruse or less important Methods, may be used to unlock the Secret of a Word.
Don't miss the charts and meanings of Hebrew letters at the link...hmmmmmm

Missler explores even the SHAPE OF THE LETTERS in Hebrew letters in the video above.

There is nothing Christian about any of this...

Remember when I warned about Pardes with Jacob Prasch....

This is what they are doing with the numerology!

Seeking MYSTICISM within the letters themselves and the number of them.

There is out and out numerology on endless Christian websites and other places.

"Three nails and a crown. Together they form a number, a code!"


Some take a fence sitting stand on Gematria...saying some take it too far but still entertain it's mystical meanings. How on earth can on say anything related to divination is okay at all?

Deuteronomy 18:10-12

King James Version (KJV)
10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch.
11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee.

Avoid those who count letters, go into the mystical meaning of shapes of letters, Bible codes, and more....

And considering the falling away do not be shocked that so many pastors are preaching direct occultism, it's horrifying but God warned us!

I was reading somewhere that Missler's IQ is around 160, or 180 even. That is pretty amazing considering that the average IQ is about 100.

But, IQ isn't everything.

1 Corinthians 1:27 "But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;"

Romans 1:22 "Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools"

Not to go off on a tangent, but I can only imagine the brain power of Adam and Eve before the fall. Contrary to evolution's claim, man has gotten less intelligent as a result of sin.

Excellent post! God's Word is given to us for all to understand and do (James 1:22-25). God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34), His Word is not some magical mystery book for only the elite or clergy to understand. - Don

160-180 is very high even among Mensa rankings. I think to get into Mensa you need 135+ 140 is considered "genius". But you are right IQ isn't everything and if anything the very smart in this world are more prone to buying Satan's lies. The UU church is full of mega-intellectual types. I am sure Adam and Eve were very smrat.

Bible Believer said...

Thanks Don, I love how you wrote that God's Word is not some magical mystery book for the elite or clergy. When they do things like count words [for esoteric meaning] and apply values to letters, they are doing "divination" with God's Word. That includes that Bible Code stuff.

Straight to the point again: You are very precise about Judaism/Religions in general and the babylonian influance/curse. Bill Cooper would be happy seing his great work taking fruits.
God bless you, Chaukee

PS: You really have come a long way when u were into Theosopy... ;-)

"That looks like a giant eyeball behind him [Missler]"

Of course it is. He swears fealty to the great architect like most celebrity religious figures today.

satan/lucifer/the great architect has been fooling humans since the beginning of time.

I always find it funny though that they only show 'one eye' (the "eye of light"). Both the 'eye of light' and the 'eye of darkness' belong on the same head (satan).

Being brought out of all this (the occult), I can honestly say there is no Peace in any of these teachings. I believe 100% the church at large is entrenched in the occult.
I agree that an IQ means nothing its about salvation. Anyone with an IQ can still be completely deceived.
When you come out of all of this its quite humbling and humiliating to realize what an idiot you really were. These people are the "blind leading the blind" and well, we all know where that heads too.

Blessings, (love the blog btw).

Thanks Chaukeedaar and anon :)

Yes lots of markings with these types so why not an horus eye in the background?

Agree about the smart people. Hey the UU, they had totally smart people in there. I know people in Mensa, well lets just say the bible believing Christians in that group, it's just as few as the rest of the world and the ones in there seemed even more fooled by the pseudo scientific New Age and rest. I am growing stronger in my conclusions that the Nephilim teachings too come right out of the occult.

Thank you for your research on Mike Hoggard and others. But we have been concerned about Hoggard's strange teaching. We listened to him for a long time, and noticed he was getting deeper into weird things. The usage of numbers in his teaching, really bothered us. Now we know how bad it is. Thank you for bringing understanding to this subject. We are sharing this on our website, Proclaiming The Truth and wherever we can.

Rev.13:18 Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

God tells us to count.
In order to count the number we must use gematria. Gematria assign a numerical value to each letter of the alphabet. We add all the numbers up to get the number of the beast.

Russian President Putin born on 10-7-1952 is the beast of reve.13:18

Any one who tells you not use numerology, gematria and counting numbers in the bible doesn't have wisdom. The Word of God is like the flesh but under each letter and word are numbers and they are the Spirit and hidden manna. The numbers can tell you if you are not understanding what God is saying. Numbers don't lie but man interpretation can cause many errors in the Word of God.

I believe the papal office is antichrist and a Pope will be the Antichrist. Not so sure about world leaders anymore. I do think Putin works with the Pope and is of an antichrist spirit. Definitely allowing the gospel being preached in his country is a fruit of that. Some say Putin's picture is in the one old painting and marks him as the future antichrist. I tend to think naming leaders as the antichrist is limited. It's most likely the Pope in my beliefs.

Putin does meet with the Pope a lot though.
