Angka Alkitabiah dan Gematrik Alkitab bagian 2

Yang lainnya:

Ada beberapa angka penting lainnya dalam Kitab Suci:

  • 17 – Kemenangan ,contoh kemenangan Nuh mengatasi bah (Kejadian 7.11, 8.4)
  • 24 – Keimaman.  24 tua-tua sekitar tahta (Wahyu 4.4)
  • 40 – Ujian dan cobaan misal Yesus dipadang belantara (Lukas 4.1-13)
  • 42 – Penindasan terhadap Israel, akhir masa kesukaran Israel  (Dan 12.7)(Wahyu 11.2)
  • 70 – Jumlah tua-tua,  masa hukuman dan pemulihan Israel (Dan 9.24)
  • 144 – Pengaturan rohani dan perlindungan, meterai Israel (Wahyu  7.4)

Pewahyuan Ilahi?

Contoh yang sangat menarik tentang bagaimana angka alkitabiah memberikan pewahyuan ilahi tentang Alkitab, diuraikan oleh E.F.Vallowe [“Biblical Mathematics: Keys to Scripture Numerics”]. Allah memerintahkan Nuh untuk membangun sebuah bahtera

300 cubits long by 50 cubits wide by 30 cubits tinggi (Kejadian 6.15). These dimensions define a numeric volume of 450,000 which factors as 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 5 × 144. Karena 5 menunjuk karunia Allah dan 144 menunjuk bimbingaohani. Apakah ukuran dimensi bahtera bicara tentang kasih pemeliharaan Allah kepada delapan orang dalam bahtera?

Bagaimana tentang 666?

When 666 appears in the Bible it relates to either gold (wealth), idolatry, atau pengendalian manusia (masa kini, bangsa-bangsa menggunakan emas sebagai penjamin kurs mata uang). Kekayaan Salomo termasuk pendapatan per tahun berupa 666 talenta emas (1 Raja 10.14) dan dia kemudian terjerumus dalam penyembahan berhala (1Raja 11). Ketika sisa-sisa umat kembali dari tawanan ke Yerusalem, mereka termasuk 666 orang dari Adonikam (Ezra 2.13). Adonikam adalah seorang bangsawan yang diutus dari Babel untuk membangun kembali Kuil .

Angka 666 sangat kuat dalam patung emas Nebukadnezar (Daniel 3). Ukurannya adalah tinggi 60 hasta dan lebar 6 hasta, dan ketika khalayak mendengar suara 6 alat musik (Dan 3.5 KJV, NASB) mereka harus tersungkur dan menyembah sang berhala. Yang tidak mematuhinya akan dibunuh. So in Nebuchadnezzar’s image we see 666 diasosiasikan dengan emas, pemujaan berhala dan menggiatkan penyembahan di atas kesakitan maut.

Patung Nebukadnezzar merupakan bayangan skenario 666 akhir jaman:

“… angka dari si buas … adalah angka seorang manusia:  angka dia adalah 666” (Wahyu 13.18)

Di sini kita temukan bahwa Antikris (si buas) menggunakan kemakmuran (jual beli),penyembahan berhala (penyembahan lambang) dan pengendalian yang sangat ketat atas bangsa-bangsa melebihi nyeri atas maut (Wahyu 13.11-18). Yang jelas, 666   bukanlah angka yang manis!

Bible Gematria

As mentioned, gematri adalah suatu sistem  melambangkan suatu nilai angka pada satu kata atau frase. Sebuah pelajaran gematria dalam Alkitab menunjukkan angka-angka yang menakjubkan berkaitan dengan naskah demi naskah. Apapun yang diungkapkan tidak boleh bertentangan dengan Firman Tuhan, atau menambahinya. But it can enhance the meaning of a particular scripture by linking it to other relevant texts. Also, the implied coding of texts underscores the Christian belief that the Bible is indeed the inspired word of God. The numbers look of divine origin and can be intriguing.

Angka 37

Bonnie Gaunt dalam bukunya The Sacred Design punya banyak penelitian menarik. Terlihat bahwa angka prima 37 dan integer multiples (atau ekstensi) dari 37 selalu menunjuk pada Allah atau  atribut Allah. For instance, in certain verses, 37 is the sum for ‘God’, ‘only Son’, ‘only begotten’, 2 × 37 = 74 is the sum of ‘a great God’, ‘Penebus mereka’, ‘kekal’, and 3 × 37 = 111 adalah angka ‘menakjubkan’, ‘Yang MahaTinggi’, ‘Putera dari Allah yang hidup’ and ‘Tuhan segala sesuatu’.

Consider a few more integer multiples. In the NT the Greek for Jesus sums to 888 = 24 × 37, and in the OT the phrase ‘In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth’ (Gen 1.1) sums to 2701 = 73 × 37.Kenyataannya, ini diklaim bahwa 37 adalah pusat dari kitab.

Gerbang Ishtar

Ketika orrang Ibrani ditawan ke Babel, mereka melewati Gerbang Ishtar, gerbang masuk ke Kuil Ishtar. Di gerbang ini ada gambar ataupun relief 337 mahluk iblis atau naga, dewa ular babel. Mengapa 337? It turns out that 337 is the numerical sum of “Neraka di bumi”dalam gematri Ibrani. When the Jews went through this gate they knew they were going through the gateway to hell on earth! Is it significant that this ancient gate has now been excavated and moved from Babylon to the Pergamon Museum in Berlin? (suatu reproduksi kecil dari gerbang ini dibangun di Irak oleh Saddam Hussein).

Now let’s look at the positive side! Consider the gematria associated with Jesus.

Yesus

Huruf gerika untuk Yesus terdiri dari enam huruf:

iota = 10, eta = 8, sigma = 200, omicron = 70, upsilon = 400, sigma = 200. Jumlah Aritmetika = 888.

This is intriguing. The number 8 in scripture denotes a new beginning and Jesus gave new birth to mankind. Also, triple 8 could imply a new beginning given by a triune God, through Jesus. There is more support for a special significance of 888. Consider the following phrases: “The Founder” and “I am the Life”. Each phrase can be closely associated with Jesus and, amazingly, each sums to 888 in Greek! Also, 888 = 37 × 24. Now 37 denotes “Word of God” or simply “God” and 24 denotes “priesthood”. So Jesus is the Word of God, Divine and our High Priest all in one!

One of the intriguing aspects of Bible gematria is the way it links both Hebrew and Greek text. Consider the phrase

“Keselamatan dari Allah” dalam Mazmur 98.3. Dalam Ibrani ini adalah “Yeshoth Elohenu” yang total jumlahnya 888! Angka ini  mengarahkan pembaca Mazmur pada Tuhan Yesus!

Tuhan Yesus Kristus

Tiga kata ini dalam Gerika adalah:

Tuhan: kappa,upsilon,rho,iota,omikron,sigma: jumlah aritmetika = 800

Yesus: iota,eta,sigma,omicron,upsilon,sigma: arithmetic sum = 888

Kristus: chi,rho,iota,sigma,tau,omikron,sigma: jumlah aritmetika = 1480

Total sum: 3,168

Is this number significant? First note that 3 × 1 × 6 × 8 = 144 or 12 × 12. Now 12 and 12 is symbolic of the New Jerusalem (Rev 21.10-14) with its 12 gates (the 12 tribes of Israel) and 12 foundation stones (the 12 apostles). Also note that the number 12 denotes governmental perfection and Jesus is coming back to rule the earth with perfect justice (Zech 14.9). Is this all coincidence?

The number 3,168 appears in other scriptures, each time underscoring the attributes of Christ. For example, the phrase “perantara antara Allahdan manusia(1 Tim 2.5) also sums to 3,168 in Greek, pointing to Jesus as the mediator. What is even more amazing is that all the Hebrew letter values in Isa 53.11 also sum to 3,168. Thus 3,168 not only highlights the Lordship of Christ, but also His Priestly and sacrificial roles for mankind.

Then there is the curious relationship between man’s measurements and gematria. Consider first the birth place of Jesus. The town was precisely foretold (Mic 5.2), so surely the geographic location of Bethlehem is significant? Curiously, the latitude of Bethlehem is never given precisely and can range from 31.5° to 32.7°! So assigning the latitude to 31.68° as in Gaunt ties Jesus very precisely to His birthplace. Any modern-day discrepancy in the latitude could be due to a slight shift in the earth’s crust over 2000 years, link. Another interesting measure concerns the footprint of Solomon’s temple. The floor dimensions of of the temple were specified to be 60 cubits by 20 cubits (2 Chron 3.3)(1 Kings 6.2) – a perimeter of 160 cubits. Verse 3 also defines the cubit to be used (the one according to the old standard), although there is some debate as to whether this is about 20.5 inches or 19.8 inches. If we take the latter (the Babylonian royal cubit) then 160 × 19.8 = 3,168 – which again seems to underscore the divine inspiration of the Bible.

Conclusions

Bible numbers, especially those from 1 to 12, have well-defined and undisputed meaning e.g. 6 denotes man and 7 completeness. Whenever a number occurs it is helpful to recall its underlying meaning since this may enhance understanding of the text. In passing we might ask “Is the fact that 12 has fallen from use in the world in favour of 10 (decimalisation) suatu pertanda akhir jaman dari orang yang memberontak terhadap Allah?”

Biblical gematria could be conjecture or coincidence or both. But many maintain that they underscore the divine inspiration of both old and new testaments and so build faith in God’s word. On the surface it appears that the Hebrew and Greek text is encoded such that its numeric value enhances understanding of the text and also builds links to similar texts (unifying the Bible). Encoding requires intelligence i.e. the mind of God. It is an open question why some gematria appear to relate to man’s units of measurement such as degrees and inches.
