Previously I wrote about the occult speech that Christine Lagarde gave in 2014, and about how she provided misleading instructions for the calculation of the dates in her speech. I was thinking about how the starting dates for World Wars I and II happen to add up to the number 7, a number highlighted by Lagarde in her speech, and I decided to calculate the date of April 17, 2018. I used 17 as the day because in occult circles the number 17 is a significant number. The result was disturbing.
According to Eisler the Greek alphabet is the basis for the calculation. The letters of the Greek alphabet are numbered from 1 to 24 and then the numbers are assigned to the letters in a given word. The numbers are then added together in a specific way. The number 17 adds up to 8 (1+7=8).
April is Απρίλιος in Greek. The letters in the word ‘April’ add up to 96. This can be reduced to 15 (9+6) and then to 6 (1+5) but it’s not necessary to reduce it. You can use 96, 15 or 6. When you add the month, April, the day, 17, and the year 2018 it always comes out to 7. Use the number 96: (9+6+1+7+2+1+8= 34 and 3+4=7); or the number 15: (1+5+1+7+2+1+8=25 and 2+5=7); or number 6: (6+1+7+2+1+8=25 and 2+5=7).
A word of warning–it’s too easy to ascribe real meaning to these interpretations. I have no idea if I’m calculating the numbers correctly. Furthermore, according to some YouTubers, September 23, 2017 was supposed to bring the apocalypse but it passed like any other day. And when Condoleeza Rice likened the destruction of the Middle East to‘painful birth’ she was referring to chapter 12 of the Book of Revelation. It’s likely she was only trying to reassure her fundamentalist base–we don’t know if she associated her administration’s policies with the Book of Revelation. The question is, should we take Trump’s threats of immediate war more seriously?
The following is Robert Eisler’s discussion of the number 17. I’m aware that some of his theories are controversial. His theory that Jesus was a zealot has been refuted by Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) and I accept Ratzinger’s correction of Eisler’s theory. However I trust Eisler’s knowledge of numerology. I’ll also mention another possible controversy: in this chapter he talks about the similarity of Christian beliefs to pagan beliefs, but I don’t think that’s his view. In the next chapter he agrues that ancient Judaism is the source of the Christian stories, not paganism. However I welcome corrections to the way I’m using this material.
Page 118 of Orpheus the Fisher Eisler includes a discussion of John 21:7-11:
Again, part of the secret hidden behind the number 153 of the fish is explained by S. Augustine (Tract. 123 in Joann. Ev.) on Pythagorean principles. Indeed, again according to Philo (vol. i., p. 10, Mangey), the ‘fulfilment’ of any potentiality, say 3, is 1+2+3=6; the ‘fulfilment’ of 4, the famous tetraktys, is 1+2+3+4=10, etc. Consequently the ‘fulfilment’ of 17 is 1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17=153; now, as Augustine has well pointed out, ‘ten’ is with Philo the number of the decalogue, while ‘seven’ represents, according to Rev. 1:4, 3:1, the Holy Spirit. Thus ‘seventeen’ symbolises the ‘fulfilment’ of the ‘law’ by the superaddition of ‘grace,’ the charismatic gift of the Spirit, which descends upon man in the Christian baptism, and ‘one hundred and fifty-three’ is again the ‘fulfilment’ of this most holy and most significant number ‘seventeen.
