Gematria is so much more than people think it is today. Real Gematria is not about cherry-picking numbers and comparing them to one other. Real Gematria is more like this:
700 = בראשית + אלהים + השמים + הארץ
(The nouns of Genesis 1:1)
בבאאהוה = 800
(Genesis 1:1 using notariqon and the reversal cipher)
אחד ראש: אחדותו ראש ייחודותו: תמורתו אחד = 777
("One is His Beginning; one is His Individuality; His Permutation One!")
ראשון שני שלישי רביעי חמישי שישי שבת = 777
(the days of the week in Hebrew)
Real Gematria in the bible was a formal system of early mathematics. It is a beautiful and ancient art that is a crucial key to biblical interpretation and occult symbolism.
There are many books about gematria, but they don't use the same ciphers as Biblical scribes or Occult writers and so they're useless for Biblical exegesis. But 'Behold' includes everything you need to find and read hidden messages in the Bible for yourself.

The Genesis Wheel is an analysis of the first two chapters of Genesis with gematria and other hermeneutical methods.
One of the most exciting finds is that Genesis 1-2 has been arranged according to alphabetical order.
To be published this year in hardback.
What was the Chariot (Merkabah) to ancient Israel and to the Canaanites? Was the Chariot known to ancient Babylonians too? What are its origins and what made it such a carefully kept secret?
Bethsheba's second book presents her research into the origins of the Chariot and its link with the First Temple and the Tanakh.
Written directly after discovering Aleister Crowley had found and employed the biblical cipher in major works such as the Book of the Law, it was Bethsheba's simple intention to share some interesting findings with the rest of the Occult community. Little did she realise that she was beginning a study that would last for over 7 years.
The Glory of Kings is a community project created by Bethsheba Ashe for the study of Aleister Crowley's Book of the Law: Liber Al vel Legis. It shows the gematria of every word in the book along with Bethsheba's gematria commentary and all 3 commentaries made by Aleister Crowley, all in one place.
