Actually the Greek gematria 888 stands for Jesus in the paragraph below that I copied and pasted from the bottom of the link at  For the Doves who are interested in numbers in the Bible, I would highly recommend reading the entire link or at least taking a look at it.

"Another type of encoded evidence is known as equidistant letter sequences, or ELS. God uses ELS and gematria together. For instance, adding every seventh Hebrew letter of Isaiah 9:6, a well-known Messianic prophecy, totals 888, the gematria of Messiah (30 + 50 + 400 + 5 + 6 + 6 + 90 + 1 + 300)."

-----Isaiah 9:6
"For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace."

"Adding every seventh Hebrew letter of Isaiah 11:1, another Messianic prophecy, also totals 888 (200 + 10 + 200 + 5 + 10 + 6 + 40 + 200 + 3 + 8 + 1 + 5 + 200). Some people question why God would encode such complication into His writing. Well, you and I write in ways reflecting our limited intelligence. God, with His writing, reflects His unlimited intelligence. It would be unusual if God did not write in such a way. Is such a feat too difficult for the Creator of the Universe? Think about it."
