It’s my wish to explain the significance of 218 in Gematria and it’s recurrence in significant historical events as the date 2-18. It’s easy with gematria to get lost in the numbers.  Other numbers will come up but I will aim to maintain everything within the context of the number 218.

ירח (the hebrew word for “moon”)has the gematria value of 218


February 18th (2/18) will bring in this month’s 3rd quarter moon phase.  The quarter moon phases (1st and 3rd) are often used in freemasonic rituals.  9/11/2001 happened during the 3rd quarter moon phase.  The collapse of the Plasco Building in Tehran, Iran happened on 1/19/2017 during the 3rd quarter moon phase. Junaid Jamshed’s death on 12/7/16 (the anniversary of Pearl Harbor) happened during the 3rd quarter moon phase. 1/6/2017 the date of the Ft. Lauderdale shooting was during the 1st quarter moon phase.

Reports said that the shooter took flight #2182 from Minnesota to FLL:


Of course, 218-2 = 216 which is 6x6x6

Another look at 9/11:
The numerical value of “The World Trade Center” equates to 218, and is displayed as the outer shell of a 7 x 7 x 7 cube of circles.  Not to be confused with surface area (343).  This is the total sum of circles.  From left to right by column it would be 49+24+24+24+24+24+49 =218
The date 2-18 also relates to 7 since it is the 49th day of the year, 49 being 7×7.


The sum of the divisors of 218 (1,2,109,218) equals 330.  Another nod to freemasonry.

2-18 in History

The Daytona 500 race has been on this date 7 times.  Dale Earnhardt Jr. died on this date in 2001 on the last lap.  The Daytona 500 as of current procedures has been pushed to the last Sunday of the month so it will likely never be on the 18th again.


Also, just throwing this out there.  The first race was in 1959 and this year’s race will be the 59th.

2/18/2001 – FBI agent Robert Philip Hanssen was arrested and accused of spying for Russia for more than 15 years. He later pleaded guilty and was sentenced to life in prison without parole.

2/18/1977 – The space shuttle Enterprise went on its maiden “flight” sitting on top of a Boeing 747.

2/18/1930 – The planet Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh. The discovery was made as a result of photographs taken in January 1930.

2/18/1885 – Mark Twain’s “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was published in the U.S. for the first time.


2/18/1861 – In Montgomery, AL, Jefferson Davis was inaugurated as the President of the Confederate States.
