The 1202 Gematrias and the Hatam Sofer

The Sod1820 website has a list of numbers with Geula-related gematrias.  Many of them are very interesting.  I want to concentrate on the gematrias listed that equal 1202.

Here are some of my favorite with their translations:
The year of the Redemption --- (milui) שנת הגאולה
Footsteps of the Mashiah --- עקבתא דמשיחא
Mashiah ben David in 776 --- משיח בן דוד בתשעו
10 Tevet, 5776 --- י טבת התשע"ו
Revelation of Mashiah --- התגלות משיח
An Ahishena Redemption in 5776 --- גאולה אחישנה בהתשעו
The heralding of the Redemption via Eliyahu Hanavi --- בשורת הגאולה על ידי אליהו הנביא
In the beginning, G-d created --- בראשית ברא אלהים
The coming of the King Mashiah --- ביאתו של מלך המשיח

The one that says י טבת התשע"ו goes according to Sod1820's thesis that there is something special about Asara Betevet this year. They even have a countdown timer on their home page until that date. They named that date over 18 months ago and maybe earlier. As I don't believe in predicting definite dates - only possible dates - I'll leave it up to the reader whether or not to believe in this date. I will urge you that if you do believe in it, to keep it as only a possible date and not a definite one.

A possible support for this number of 1202 being significant is from the writings of the Hatam Sofer in a number of places, whose Geula prediction was based on the verse:
אַחֲרֵי נִמְכַּר, גְּאֻלָּה תִּהְיֶה-לּוֹ: אֶחָד מֵאֶחָיו, יִגְאָלֶנּוּ
after that he is sold he may be redeemed; one of his brethren may redeem him
Although the Hatam Sofer's prediciton (which came out to 5570 - see also here for a list of Kitzim by great rabbis) did not pan out, the tradition he had that the Ketz HaGeula was based on that verse is still intact.

The gematria of אַחֲרֵי נִמְכַּר, גְּאֻלָּה תִּהְיֶה-לּוֹ: אֶחָד מֵאֶחָיו, יִגְאָלֶנּוּ is 1202.
