Many evidences & Proofs Why the Bible had to be God Inspired (supernatural):

(see also Evidence Everywhere page for more Numeric Example proofs)

The following is a list of very interesting Bible verses showing how numbers and themes in the text of the Bible seem to line up with the locations where the verses are found:

  1. 144,000 who go before Jesus -- The verse at Revelation 14:3 tells of the 144,000 who will be purchased from the earth at the Lord's return but it is the next verse that's more important and describes who these 144,000 are. Is it coincidence the verse is Revelation 14:4 (144) whose verse number matches those who it describes? These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These {are} the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb.
  2. 666 the number of the beast -- Practically everyone's knows the number for the beast in Revelation - 13:18 ...Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast...his number is six hundred and sixty-six. It is interesting that 6+6+6=18 and this is verse 18 of a chapter with only 18 verses. The theme of the chapter is about the beast and the cross bible chapter number of 1180 also shows a relationship to 18.
  3. Number 72 and Witnesses -Ruth 4:9 -- Number 72 is associated with witnesses and two times 72 = 144 a number also associated with witnesses. In the 7200th verse of the Bible Boaz declares all with him are witnesses that he has purchased Naomi, Ruth and all their possessions. This verse directly about witnesses is the 7200th verse; the 72nd verse of the book of Ruth; is in the 236th bible chapter and 2*36=72; and is verse reference 4:9 which is 36 a multiple of 72. This important verse speaks of the future when Jesus will one day purchase each of us from the earth and numbering of this verse confirming multiple times about witnessing is not likely a coincidence.
  4. Number 36 and Original Sin -- Genesis 3:6 -- Number 36 is often found related to 666 as is demonstrated by seeing 36 meaning three sixes (666). In the 36th verse of the Bible Eve ate the fruit which is the sin we are all paying for today.
  5. 1260 days, 3 1/2 years, 42 months time of the Lord's Return -- Interesting that two verses that predict the Lord's return in 1260 days have verse reference numbers confirming and highlighting the text -- Rev 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she *had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. and in Dan 12:6 ... "How long {will it be} until the end of {these} wonders?" and the man replied in v7 ...I heard the man dressed in linen...that it would be for a time, times, and half a time....
  6. 595th and Exact Middle Bible chapter is shortest and only two verse chapter-Psalm 117—“Praise the LORD, all nations; Laud Him, all peoples!” shortest and only two verse chapter in the Bible – How did it get at this very unique location?
  7. John 3 the Bible's key chapter and home of John 3:16 is the 1000th chapter – 1000 is said by Josephus to be God’s number of perfection—The most important chapter at the perfect position—How?
  8. The Jubilee chapter, Psalm 22 the 500th where Jesus pays for our sins--The year of Jubilee is every 50th year and 500 is an intense form of the number 50 thus pointing out with the cross bible chapter number that Jesus has freed us through his action on the cross. Jubilee is explained in Lev 25:10 'You shall thus consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim a release through the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you, and each of you shall return to his own property, and each of you shall return to his family.
  9. The 24,000th verse highlights the DAY of the Lord-- at intersections of 5 references to number 24s about the Day of the Lord -- Matthew 24:42 about the Day of the Lord -- Mathematically shows is statistically impossible chance occurrence. The 24th chapter about the DAY of the Lord; the 42nd verse (reverse of 24) is the key verse to watch out for we don't know when this DAY will occur. These four references to things related to 24 are all found in the 24,000th verse of the Bible. God has highlighted this very special verse for us.
  10. 17s and the flood--The rain began on the 17th; the ark rose on the 17th; and rested on the 17th; Jesus ascended on the 17th--As an example of how so many flood related verses are associated with 17 note how - Genesis 7:11 (17) tells of the rain beginning is the 171th verse in the 7th chapter -- Gen 7:11 In the six hundredth year of Noah's life, in the second month, on the seventeenth day of the month, on the same day all the fountains of the great deep burst open, and the floodgates of the sky were opened.
  11. The Angel of the Lord is Jesus--There are 53 references to "The Angel of the LORD" in the Bible and many scholars attribute the term as a reference to Jesus himself. Judges 13:18 is one example where we see this angel identifying himself with the name Wonderful which is a name for Jesus -- Judg 13:18 But the angel of the LORD said to him, "Why do you ask my name, seeing it is wonderful?"  Note: this is verse 13:18 and and 318 is 6*53 which seems to relate to the 53 occupancies to this term found in the Bible. Only one time is this term found in the New Testament -- In Matthew 1:24 where Joseph did as "The angel of the Lord" commanded him and took Mary for his wife.
  12. The 11,111th verse and counting--In counting we sometimes use hash marks to tally things such as scores one at a time and the 11,111th verse of the Bible may be the strongest counting related verse in the Bible. The NASB bible even uses the word enumeration for the counting in this verse. Not all the things counted. There's even a reference to all the months of the year and this is the 365th Bible chapter - The 11,111th verse -- 1Chr 27:1 ...the enumeration of the sons of Israel, the heads of fathers' households, the commanders of thousands and of hundreds, and their officers who served the king in all the affairs of the divisions which came in and went out month by month throughout all the months of the year, each division numbering 24,000: .
  13. 555 and the Washington Monument and the middle Bible verse - The Washington Monument on the National Mall is 555 feet high and on the top where it can only be seen from the air is the phrase "Praise be to God". It is interesting the middle verses of the Bible are the 15551st and 15552nd both exclaiming -- Psa 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, bless His holy name. .Top of Washington Monument --the height of the Washington Monument seems to correspond to the center verses of the Bible?  On the outside of this monument there are no signs or plaques indicating it is the Washington Monument-why? There's many other interesting things associated with the Washington Monument and George Washington that seem to point to Jesus Christ. Might George Washington be a Christ type? Take a look at the circle around Washington's picture on the one-dollar bill-unlike other denominations that have an oval around the president's picture, Washington's picture is framed with an omega symbol ...interesting.
  14. Fourteen is a number for Passover and also for Jesus the King -- When you see the number 14 in the Bible it is often associated with Jesus the King who will one day return for his people. One example of this association is in Zechariah chapter 14 verse 4 In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.   Another example is John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. One more -- Rev 14:14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. .
  15. Elijah's return compared to the return of the Lord (29/99) -- 9, 99 and 999 are numbers about the ends of one time/series of events and the approaching beginning of another. Number 29 can be seen as two nines and 39 can be seen as three nines. 911 can be seen as 29 (9 and 1+1=2) which warn us of the coming return of the Lord. It seems no coincidence that two verses that tell of Elijah's return for judgment are strongly related to the number 9 and 99--they are 1Kings 18:7 and Malachi 4:5. 1st Kings 18:7 is the 9349th verse (39,99) in the 309th chapter (39=3 nines) and of course chapter number 18= 9+9 or 2x9. Malachi 4:5 is in the 929th chapter and in the 39th OT book. It is also the 54th verse of Malachi (6x9) and chapter and verse add to nine. These verse associations support the symbolism of these numbers and also show God's precise alignment of the theme in the text along with all reference numbers attached to it -- 1Kin 18:7 Now as Obadiah was on the way, behold, Elijah met him, and he recognized him and fell on his face and said, "Is this you, Elijah my master?" Mal 4:5 "Behold, I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the LORD.
  16. (39) Thirty-nine and Israel and the Jews--There are numerous evidences in Biblical numerics that demonstrate the relationship of the number 39 to the Jews and Israel. (Subsequent topics will show 39 is also related to the coming day of the Lord which is a warning for us to be ready and have accepted Jesus before his return to Judge.) One of the major examples for the symbolism of 39 is the 39 books of the Old Testament which we generally associate with the law and the only part of God's Word that Judaism recognizes. We also know that Israel wandered in the wilderness for almost 40 years before entering the promised land giving us a foreshadowing of how they will again wander through years of persecution and testing before one day finally recognizing Jesus and coming back to God. Another evidence that ties Israel to number 39 is the numbering of the first chapter of the New Testament. The book of Matthew is written to the Jews to demonstrate Jesus is their coming Messiah and the first chapter of this first book has a special DNA like numerical link between the 39 books of the Old Testament and the New Testament -- this first chapter of the New Testament is the 930th chapter of the Bible. The 929 chapters of the 39 books of the Old Testament are immediately followed by the 930th (39 in reverse) chapter pointing out the genecology of Jesus proving he is the Messiah. Number 39 (999) points us to the coming day of the Lord and also to Israel and the Jews who have not yet completed their 40 years of wandering without coming back to God.
  17. Astounding ...Psalm 117 divinely ties together the Old and New Testament--As mentioned in an earlier item, Psalm 117 is the middle chapter of the Bible in terms of it's number of chapters and it is very unique in that this chapter contains just two verses. Psalm 117 is the 595th of 1,189 total Bible chapters (1189/2=594) (KJV, NIV, NASB... structured Bibles).

    Psa 117:1 Praise the LORD, all nations; Laud Him, all peoples! (1929th verse of Psalms)
    Psa 117:2 For His lovingkindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD! (1930th verse of Psalms)

    Isn't it interesting that the chapter that splits the Bible in two equal parts has only two verses which both proclaim "Praise the Lord". I imagine this to be one of God's supernatural indications that the entire Bible - both halves, is about Jesus Himself.

    When I first ran across this evidence I could not imagine it to be coincidence. What I knew about men creating the Bible said it had to be an accident of chance, but my logic told me I could not so quickly dismiss this explanation. Over the coming months, more and more evidences compelled me to understand the Bible is supernaturally numbered and ordered.

    About two years after I noticed the special nature of this center chapter, I was astounded at another incredible evidence for God's numbering in these same two verses. The cross book verse numbers (in Psalms) of these two verses corresponded directly to the sequential chapter numbers of the last chapter of the Old Testament and the first chapter of the New Testament. These two verses are the 1929th and 1930 verses of Psalms, and Malachi 4 and Matthew 1 are the 929th and 930th chapters of the Bible. Now I was sure, both these amazing "coincidences" for the middle Bible chapter could not have happened by chance.

    The chapter that splits Bible chapters into two equal parts also points to the division of Old and New Testaments. So not only is Psalm 117 a unique two verse chapter positioned precisely in the middle of the Bible, but it is also a chapter whose verses divinely link the Old Testament and New Testament into a single volume of God's Word. It is better evidence for the divine authorship of the Bible than we have ever seen - it is evidence people have spent their lifetimes trying to discover - I.E. searching the Dead Sea Scrolls for evidence of Jesus.

    This chapter is an amazing evidence anyone can validate for themselves of the DNA like numbering perfection supernaturally constructed in the Bible - the Jesus of the New Testament is the same messiah told about throughout every book of the Old Testament. Praise the Lord!

    Note: It is also very interesting that there are 39 books in the Old Testament and the first chapter in the first book in the New Testament is the 930th chapter (39 in reverse). Bible patterns demonstrate the significance of this number which I suspect is related to the number 40-1 (39) which reflects a count of years one short of completing Wilderness Wandering - a nation and people's who have not yet discovered the messiah is - Jesus Christ.
  18. (39)Thirty-nine and Israel's captivity -- Another of many evidences for the relationship between 39 and the Jews comes from Jerimiah 39:9 where Jerusalem is captured and the Jews are taken into captivity. Not only is this the 39th chapter of Jerimiah that tells of Israel's exile for turning from God but the number association with 39 is further confirmed as this is the 19933rd verse of the Bible (note the 93/39 in this number). Jer 39:9 As for the rest of the people who were left in the city, the deserters who had gone over to him and the rest of the people who remained, Nebuzaradan the captain of the bodyguard carried them into exile in Babylon.
  19. (39) Thirty-Nines and the Jews--1Kings 18:21 How long will you Hesitate, God or Baal? -- Note-other topics on this page that explain the associations between the number 39 and Israel. In 1st Kings chapter 18 we find the Miracle on Mount Carmel where Elijah comes and is used to demonstrate without doubt who God is. Elijah brought fire down from heaven to consume sacrifices and people of Baal. In this specific verse God asks the people how long it will take them to decide who to follow--will they follow God\ or Baal. This is a key verse with a key question which we can see is the question God would ask the Jews-decide who you will follow? The verse's association with the number 39 is one of many of the Bible's examples that tie Israel to the symbolism of this number. Number associations for this verse are; this is the 309th chapter of the Bible and in numeric symbolism 309 relates to 39; the 9363rd Bible verse which contains strong associations to threes and nines; and the chapter and verse = 39 (chapter 18=1+8=9 and verse 21=2+1=3). 1Kin 18:21 Elijah came near to all the people and said, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people did not answer him a word.
  20. 911 is God's number warning nations that turn from him-- is a God number related to warnings before consequences to Nations -- One of many examples is in Dan 9:11 the 22,000th Bible verse (22) - Israel to be exiled because if their sin
    • Dan 9:11 "Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us,... for we have sinned against Him.
  21. Martin Luther posting the 95 thesis in the Bible?—I can’t say this is absolutely intended by God but I cannot imagine it to be coincidence – in 1517 Martin Luther posted the 95 thesis declaring his dedication to the Word of God and against a church that was making up their own rules. Martin Luther was declaring himself a bondservant of God alone.  In Deuteronomy 15:17 we find instructions for a servant who desires to become a willing bondservant to their masters -- Deu 15:17 then you shall take an awl and pierce it through his ear into the door, and he shall be your servant forever... The translation in the text for the word "ear" can be like posting a notice. Might the translation for this strange sounding procedure simply be about posting a notice on the master's door to all that come in letting them know the person is serving the Master of the house of his own free will? Might god be using this verse to reveal the accuracy of his word and his ability to both see past, present and future?
  22. 37/777 and being sealed for the Lord - 37 is another form of a theme very similar to that of 777 both relating to being saved; Jesus saving us; Jesus death for sin; perfection, etc. A good example of this is from the 13,777th bible verse where it speaks of those who are marked/sealed for redemption -Job 37:7 "He seals the hand of every man, That all men may know His work.
  23. Numbers in text match verse references -- The following verse contains the number 2 and 42 and it happens to be the 42nd verse of 2nd Kings as well as being chapter 2 and verse 24 (42 in reverse). There are too many examples of this to show here but you can find them yourself as you read God's Word-- 2Kin 2:24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number. Another example: Song 6:8 "There are sixty queens and eighty concubines, And maidens without number;
  24. 69 weeks of prophecy (7 and 62 weeks) confirmed by numbers -- In the 276th verse of the book of Daniel it is prophesied there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks until the messiah arrives -- a total of 69 weeks. Associated with this verse are two reference numbers which seem to confirm and validate the text is as it was intended. First, Daniel 9:25 is the 276th verse in the book of Daniel and this cross book verse number contains the same digits 7 and 62 that are found in the text. Second, this is the 22,014th verse in the Bible and the starting and ending numbers of this Bible verse number are 22 and 14. Twenty-two is the number associated with Jesus the suffering servant (Psalms 22, Genesis 22) and fourteen is associated with The King (see earlier item about number 14). The numbers 22 and 14 associated with this verse help confirm it speaks of Jesus the messiah who will return. Numbers such as these lining up with the text help confirm the Bible remains exactly as God designed it--no additions or modifications have been made prior to this verse as the numbers would no longer line up in this perfect way-- Dan 9:25 "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince {there will be} seven weeks and sixty-two weeks; it will be built again, with plaza and moat, even in times of distress. It is also interesting the following verse number 26 contains the same digits found in it's text. Both these verses align up with numbers associated with it -- Dan 9:26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing...
  25. The 70 weeks prophecy found in the 770th chapter - Jerimiah 25 is the 770th chapter of the Bible and the entire chapter is centered around the famous 70 week prophecy. Verses 11 and 12 specifically mention the 70 weeks.--Jer 25:11-12 'This whole land will be a desolation and a horror, and these nations will serve the king of Babylon seventy years. v12 'Then it will be when seventy years are completed I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation,' declares the LORD, 'for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans; and I will make it an everlasting desolation.(NASB)

  26. The 10,110th Bible verse - God turns time back 10 steps - To prove he is God, in a well known Bible passage God turns back time by moving a shadow on the steps back ten steps.
    2Kin 20:11 Isaiah the prophet cried to the LORD, and He brought the shadow on the stairway back ten steps by which it had gone down on the stairway of Ahaz.
    Given all the evidences shown on this page, do you suspect it coincidence this 10,110th verse happens to mention he turned back exactly 10 steps? The cross Bible verse number begins with 10, ends with 10, and has a 1 in the middle.

  27. The trinity and the two overlooked "I Am" Statements in the book of John -- Jesus declares who he is in the book of John through a series of "I am" statements which are commonly taught in church sermons. Although there are actually ten of these "I Am" statements in John, two of them are often dropped from the list which is then referred to as the 7 or 8 "I Am" statements depending on the version of the list being used. The list is reduced by two statements because it is assumed the first three declarations appear to be restatements of each other. When you understand God's number themes and the redemption pattern in the text you get a better picture of who Jesus is saying he is. The three statements are : John 6:35 …"I am the bread of life; John 6:41 …"I am the bread that came down out of heaven."; and John 6:51 "I am the living bread that came down out of heaven". It appears in each of these statements Jesus is saying he is the "bread of life" and thus they are not unique statements. Knowing the the themes for numbers 1, 2 and 3 of the redemption pattern are associated with God, Jesus the redeemer, and the Holy Spirit, you then have a guide to more accurately interpret these statements; Jesus is #1 God, the bread of life; Jesus is #2 the bread who came down from heaven -- the redeemer who comes down to save his people; and Jesus is #3 The Living Bread that came down from Heaven -- the Holy Spirit Jesus leaves as his presences to be with us. When you understand these first three "I Am" statements in John you see they are direct statements regarding the trinity-Jesus says he is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
  28. 23,000th verse - Theme for 23 - "God is with Us" - Number 23 is broadly about things being together, but it is very often related to scripture telling us God is with us. The evidence for the theme for 23 is one of the strongest number evidences seen. The best evidence is the 23,000th verse of the Bible which is also the 23rd and last verse in its chapter telling us that in the last days people will seek out the Jews because God is with them - Zechariah 8:23 "...ten men from all the nations will grasp the garment of a Jew, saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'"".  Other evidences that reveal this same theme are; The 23rd Psalm declaring the Lord is our shepherd - v4 I fear no evil, for You are with me;..;  Matthew 1:23 ...THEY SHALL CALL HIS NAME IMMANUEL," which translated means, "GOD WITH US."; passages that speak of where two or three believers are, God is in the midst - Matthew 18:20 "For where two or three have gathered together in My name, I am there in their midst.";like chapter and verse passages - Exodus 23:23 "For My angel will go before you..." and Jerimiah 23:23 "Am I a God who is near," declares the LORD, "And not a God far off?"; and Acts 23:23 ..."...Get two hundred soldiers ready by the third hour of the night...".  For those who like the even more curious examples look at Malachi 3:2 which is the 23123rd verse and the 33rd verse (two threes) of Malachi, and whose text speaks directly of Jesus return "But who can endure the day of His coming?". When you run across the number 23 in scripture be watching for this important theme. Also consider this theme for the number 32 which is directly related to 23.
  29. 25,000th verse - Theme for 25 - "Jesus revealing his physical presence" - There's much evidence in the scriptures that suggests the theme for number 25 relates to the physical revealing of Jesus Christ, the Son of God on earth. Of course, the Bible is full of references to Jesus being on earth, but it seems the number 25 is more specifically about Jesus revealing himself to men in some physical way. The most striking of the evidences and the one that first attracted me to investigate the number 25 is the 25,000th and related Bible verses. This verse found in the teaching at Luke 2:22-35 tells us of Jesus parents bringing him to Jerusalem to present him at the temple. There, they encountered Simeon of who it was said (v26 and the 25,000th verse) "it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ". In this verse we see the upcoming physical appearance of Jesus and in the next verse (25,001st) we have the first official presenting of Jesus. There's many other verse reference clues confirming this theme for 25 -- Following are some of the most obvious examples;

  30. --- Jesus with Moses - Exo 25:1 Then the LORD spoke to Moses...(Jesus with Moses?)

    --- Jesus with Moses - Lev 25:1 The LORD then spoke to Moses at Mount Sinai...

    --- The appearance of the Kinsman Redeemer (Jesus)- Lev 25:25 'If a fellow countryman of yours becomes so poor he has to sell part of his property, then his nearest kinsman is to come and buy back what his relative has sold.

    --- Jesus birth - Matt 1:25 ...she gave birth to a Son; and he called His name Jesus.

    Bible Chapters that seem to confirm this theme are:

    --- Exodus 25 - The Arc and Mercy Seat prepared for Jesus eventual return
    --- Leviticus 25 - the law of the Kinsman Redeemer who redeems lost property
    --- Numbers 25 - Israel's leaders redeemed by sacrifice of a man and woman who were pierced through
    --- Deuteronomy 25 - Rules for redeeming a widow through the Kinsman Redeemer
    --- 1Samuel 25 - Abigail redeems people from wrath of David through giving of Gifts
    --- Psalm 25 - The Psalmist tells of waiting for the redeemer
    --- Proverbs 25 - Proper actions when in the presence of the king
    --- Isaiah 25 - speaks of the future appearance of the LORD
    --- Jerimiah 25 - speaks of the Coming Day of the Lord when he returns - roars from on high
    --- Ezekiel 25 - Tells of coming judgment upon his return - they will know that I am the LORD
    --- Matthew 25 - The Ten Virgins who went out to meet the LORD

  31. 25 - Does the Celebration of Christmas on December 25th reflect the date of Jesus birth? - (see previous item relating to the number 25). The Bible's number symbolism strongly suggests number 25 is not specifically about Jesus birth, but about his physical presence on earth as the promised messiah. This seems to validate our celebration on December 25th but would appear Christmas might more accurately be celebrated as the coming of Jesus Christ, God's only begotten son, to earth.

  32. The Christmas Tree and The Burning Bush - The Christmas tree seems to be related to one of the most important appearances of The LORD in the Bible - The explanation of this begins with Exodus 3:2 which seems an image of Jesus appearance and glory on earth. How can we imagine this? Because Exodus chapter three is about Moses standing before God on earth - Exo 3:2 The angel of the LORD appeared to him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush; and he looked, and behold, the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed. For more evidence to support the premise the burning bush is an appearance of Jesus we can look at a closely related verse that describes Jesus purpose on earth. Exodus 3:8 says "...I have come down to deliver them from the power of the Egyptians, and to bring them up a land flowing with milk and honey.….". Our only way to heaven is through Jesus so it seems logical this is a reference to him speaking about himself.

    This is all a bit of a stretch of understanding until you see many other examples of how biblical numbers work, so just consider this possibility -- Exodus 3:8 is the 55th Bible verse and 55 is a number related to 25 (two fives) - a number theme about the physical appearance of the messiah on earth (Luke 2:25-27 the 24,999th to 25,001st verses). The verse reference number of 3:8 also supports this theory - 3:8 (38) is closely related to the number 888 (three eights) and the Greek gematria number of Jesus name adds up to 888. This number is claimed in many places to be the number of Jesus (Google search). Additionally, the reference in verse 3:2 to the "Angel of the Lord" is a title often associated with Jesus appearances on earth. Nobody really knows the origin of the Christmas tree, but we know they were once trees with branches holding candles with flames - a tree lit with fire but that does not burn up? Could our Christmas tree be an ancient way to remember the appearance of the glory of God's Son on the earth -- represented by an image and reminder of the Burning Bush where God's physical presence on earth occurred?

    Judge for yourself. It is my experience that God is in much more control of the world than we imagine -- and in his own way, God may have given us the Christmas tree as a symbol of one of the most significant Biblical events - The Burning Bush.

  33. Psalm 118, a carefully positioned chapter to take note of - Psalm 118 seems to be specially highlighted by God by being the only chapter between the Bible's shortest (and exact center) and longest chapters -- Psalms 117 and 119. When I realized this uniqueness I decided to examine it more closely because I suspected it was likely placed by God at this unique position for a reason. Research seems to bear this out. Psalms 118 deserves special attention because it is about salvation and comfirms Jesus is the only way to being saved.

    Psalm 118 tells of the Psalmist who has asked permission to enter God's Kingdom and then about how he is finally able to enter. The chapter reveals it is the Lord himself who answers the request and gives permission - thus granting the request for eternal life. (see also Matthew 7:7-8, Luke 11:9-10 "Ask and it will be given to you..."). The key verses revealing this truth begin at verse 19, where the Psalmist asks to enter heaven, and continues through verse 24 that tells us this all happened on the Great Day of the Lord. Verse 21 helps confirm this is about salvation saying "I shall give thanks to You, for You have answered me, And You have become my salvation." (number 21 is closely related to the Bible's strongest number about salvation - 777). It declares, "you have become" my salvation - the act is done and it has been done by the "cornerstone" which is Jesus.

    Reviewing the key verses - at verse 19 we see the psalmist's request to enter the gate of heaven and then in verse 20 we get an image of him at the specific gate - the one the righteous will enter. This is a very special gate which is the only entrance to heaven - the same gate spoken of in Matthew 7:14 saying "...the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it". Take special note of the 7:14 verse referencein Matthew that is another likely association to numbers of salvation -21/777.

    In verse 22 the psalmist gives thanks to the one who has allowed him to enter which is an amazing reference to Jesus. It is the "cornerstone" who guards the gate--the narrow door. This is an especially exciting verse since the verse number of 22 is a number that points specifically to Jesus the suffering servant who comes down to deliver his people. This is an amazing confirmation of Jesus, the messiah in the Old Testament. In verse 23 we learn the psalmist has seen Jesus with his own eyes and that the salvation Jesus grants is "marvelous" - a special word worthy of a separate topic. There's much to say about the numbering in this verse, but maybe the most obvious one to be aware of is number 23 - the number of "The Good Shepherd" being with us  -- the same shepherd that is revealed to us in the 23rd Psalm. Note how this 23rd verse reveals the psalmist's eyes have seen what the Lord has done suggesting a relationship with the Savior. Psalm 23 is also a Psalm about salvation.

    Verse 24 is maybe the most striking of all these verses as both the text and the verse number seem to reveal a special secret by saying "This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.". This declaration seems to be telling us this happens on the "Day of the Lord" which is a reference to a specific day of salvation. Matthew 24 which is the 24,000th Bible verse tells us to watch and be alert for this day. We often hear Psalm 118:24 used in Sabbath worship declaring in effect that every day or Sabbath is the Lord's day, but the numbering of this verse suggests this is a reference to the future day when the Lord returns to save. This verse reference/text combination helps us better understand the number 24 as well as the term "The Day of the Lord".

    Chapter 118 begins and ends with a special phrase - "Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; For His lovingkindness is everlasting". If you look up the word "lovingkindness" in your concordance you can see how this word appears directly related to Jesus and the salvation allowed because of the sacrifice of him on the cross. Psalms 118 is an amazing chapter in the center of the Bible showing us a picture of salvation as well as demonstrating it is Jesus who is the one that makes eternal life with God possible.

    (note the chapter number 118 is also related to 28)

  34. 9000th verse -- Temple Complete and the Spirit of God enters in a cloud -- In 1Kings chapter 8, the 299th chapter of the Bible, we find the 9000th Bible verse. The nine theme in these numbers is strongly found in the text helping us to better interpret the messages the chapter contains. There's two transitions of history found in this chapter and as I've written about in other places, the numbers 9, 99 and 999 are all transition numbers. Transition numbers mark the ending of one series of events, history or ends of things and precedes the beginnings of new ones.

    In the 299th chapter of 1Kings 8 we find events consistent with the theme of chapter eight which are about the Godly, New Beginnings and the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This chapter tells us the Temple of God is now complete and the holy things including the Ark of the Covenant are being moved into it in front of a great assembly of people who were called to celebrate and witness this Holiest of events. Once the holy things are moved in and all is ready, verse 10 (a number of completeness) tells us 1Kin 8:10 "It happened that when the priests came from the holy place, the cloud filled the house of the LORD,". In this culminating event and after generations of waiting for this moment, the temple is built and God's spirit has entered. Take special note that in this 8th chapter the spirit of the Lord enters the temple in the cloud just like the number eight is symbolic of God's Holy Spirit being sent to dwell in the those saved.

    In the 9000th transitional verse we read 1Kings 8:14 "Then the king faced about and blessed all the assembly of Israel, while all the assembly of Israel was standing". We conclude this is a reference to Solomon who turns to the people to bless them, but the numbers of the numeric map suggest there is more to this story. This 9000th verse is also the 282nd verse of 1Kings and 28/82 are numbers related to the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. The 299th chapter suggests a relationship to the number 29 (99) related to the return of the Lord. Fourteen is a number for Jesus the King (Passover) and in this 14th verse we find "The King" turning to bless the people. The message seems strong that this is a foretelling of when one day Jesus will again enter the temple to dwell and rule from the Holy of Holies.

    This being the 9000th verse ends the part of history leading up to the building of the temple and begins a new section of scripture from 9001 to the 10,000th verse. You should find it interesting that in this 10,000th verse at 2Kin 17:16 we learn God has lost his patience with Israel and has decided to send them into exile. It says "They forsook all the commandments of the LORD their God and made for themselves molten images, {even} two calves, and made an Asherah and worshiped all the host of heaven and served Baal". The number nine has a theme of the Godly serving and persevering until the Lord returns and this is the theme for the 9000 series of verses. During this time God's Holy Spirit is dwelling in his people. The number 10 speaks of the completion of things where the righteous will be saved and those that have turned from God destroyed. In both the 9,000th and 10,000th Bible verses the Numeric Map clearly points out to us two major events and turning points in Israel's history.
  35. Numbers guide interpretation - after 8 days they were taken up - Associated with #9, Jesus takes his closest disciples up on the mountain to see his glory. This appears a foreshadowing of Jesus return to take up the Godly into his kingdom.  Luke 9:28 is the 982nd verse of Luke which is interesting by itself as two numbers with the same digits intersect and are associated with the same verse. This is an indication that the verse theme you see will be somewhat clearer because the same numbers/digits are associated with it twice. Keeping this in mind we will examine the passage for more clues to the interpretation of the text. Luke 9:28 says "Some eight days after these sayings, He took along Peter and John and James, and went up on the mountain to pray". One of the first things to notice is that while the text refers to "eight days", the more important number implied but not seen here is the number nine because the reference is to "eight days after" which seems about the 9th day. The passage appears to tell us that on the 9th day the faithful went up to heaven. How do we know this?

    This interpretation makes more sense when we understand the ten progressive steps of God's plan of salvation revealed through the Redemption Pattern. In this plan, the eighth step (#8) is associated with Godly obedient believers who are serving God; and the ninth (9th) is about the future and how we live our lives until the end - or the return of the Lord (to the Godly this is about persevering in service while waiting for the Lord to take them up to heaven). Stepping back to view the progressive steps, the 7th, 8th and 9th steps guide us in understanding our Christian walk as well as things associated with 7, 8 and 9 in the Bible's text - #7) first you learn to be come Godly; #8) you receive the Holy Spirit as a helper and sign of your "godliness"; 9th) for the Godly it is about believers persevering, serving and waiting for the Lord to return for them. All the numbers and themes in the text of Luke 9:28 line up with the Redemption Pattern number themes.
    The verse reference of Luke 9:28 and the cross book verse number of 982 are also found reflected in the text. There are two shorter numbers found within in these references that fit the text and help us understand it. The digits or number 28 (verse 28) points to a theme of resurrection, or for Jesus who was resurrected and who resurrects others. In the text Jesus took his friends up to the top of the mountain. Digits for number 92 (and 29) point to the return of the Lord and make more sense when we see they are related to number 99 (two nines/29). Number ninety nine, like number 9, represents a theme for the future or things/events just prior to the end. Where number 9 represents this in a more general way, the number 99 and 999 are often more specifically about the future return of the Lord. Numbers and numbers within numbers all fit together to guide our interpretation using the Numeric Map.
    In conclusion...Luke 9:28 shows us a picture of Jesus taking those closest to him (the godly?) up to heaven after eight days. This seems to say that on the 9th day Jesus took Peter, James and John up "on the mountain". The Godly were taken up to heaven to see God's glory. Something to be expanded upon in another article -- it is significant that in this analogy only three of the twelve disciples were taken up - what does this mean for the other disciples that also believed? Only God knows for sure, but it seems there is a kind of setting apart of these two categories of those saved which should warn us about trying to live our lives in the godly category. The Bible's Numeric Map is more than just facinating - it helps us see the meaning of biblical text that we would not otherwise understand.
  36. 1John 4:9 - Impossible coincidence-A duplicate of John 3:16 at a intersection of #36 references - points to the theme for #36 and John 3:16 - 1Joh 4:9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. This verse (1) is in the 1163rd chapter; (2) is the 30,613rd Bible verse; and (3) chapter times verse = 36; (4) it is the 72nd (2x36) verse of 1John. Four numeric alignments to #36 with a theme to match. Another impossible coincidence of God's Word. Not only are the numbers and text related - it is an amazing intersection of perfection attached to the most well known Bible verse. (for another related example, see Ruth 4:9 mentioned above). The Bible's DNA-like Numeric Map of reference numbers and text prove the perfection of the Bible.

    The related verse, John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. Also related to #36, it is the 26137th Bible verse - a number containing digits #316 in the Bible verse number as well as a reference of chapter #3 and verse #16. The Bible verse number 26137 begins/ends with #27/#72 which is also a factor and related to #36 - 2x36=72. Both 1John 4:9 and John 3:16 are heavily related to #36 and its theme.

The George Washington Monument Our first president's name, George Washington, is not found anywhere on the monument. The mall is an obelisk which is a marker or boundary marking symbol and has an observation tower at the top. The Cross on the National Mall - The Washington Monument is placed as the center of the five major features that form a cross on the Washington Mall. The mall is at the very center of Washington D.C. and was originally designed as an "L" shape as the potomac river ran through the areas now occupied by the Abraham Lincoln Memorial and the Thomas Jefferson Memorial. The monument is placed approximately at the center of the two beams of the cross--it was not built in the intended center as the sandy ground at that location would not properly support the cross (amazing but true).In addition to being a great leader who was deified during his time; George Washington was a devout believer always writing about the providence of the Lord; invincible in battle; a surveyor by trade (set boundaries); was a grape grower and owned a distillery; born Feb. 22, 1732 and died Dec 14, 1799 by bleeding to death due to a doctor's bleeding procedure to heal him of strep throat (explained on the Mount Vernon tour). There was/is an empty tomb for George Washington in the nation's capital because his family would not allow him to be moved when the new capital tomb was finally ready years after his death. The name George is taken from the original greek word for vine-dresser found in Matthew 21:35 ("geōrgos") The name Washington comes from that of a river wash--where the water of a river washes through an valley or low area.  This is an original writing from research by Norm Patriquin © 2009 AmazingWord

The Bible’s Set Of 180th Book Verses

The Bible's numbers are a DNA like web of both complex and simple number relationships that we will never totally understand, but at the same time there's some very obvious clues to their validity nearly everywhere you look. One number that's part of this relationship is the sequential verse number of verses from the beginning to the end of each book. I refer to these as book verse numbers. For example, since there are 66 books in the Bible there are also 66 book verse number 1's.

Number 180 --Consider a number most all of us are aware of and can associate a theme with. The number 180 is associated with 1/2 the number of degrees in a circle and we often hear people speaking of "doing a 180" in reference to turning around, turning back, etc. 180 is also 1/2 of a full circle and thus can be associated with things divided down the middle. There are other Biblical themes associated with 180 such as comparing two things, deciding between things etc.

It is no coincidence that the 180th verse of each book of the Bible show some relationship to it's theme in the text. Some are more obvious than others but the preponderance of (the evidence if you look at these verses as a set) are amazing. There are 35 book verse 180s in the Bible. Consider some of the following 180th bible verses...this pattern cannot honestly be dismissed as coincidence by anyone taking a reasonable look into them. These can easily be confirmed to be 180 verses by simply counting the verses in your own personal bible. If anyone thinks the same could be said about any other set of verses, they might pick another book verse number and see for themselves that although there will be a pattern there, it will not match the 180 themes—Pick the number 360 and see a theme related to surrounding, or all, or entirely, or completely. Look at the amazing 180 verses below.
best examples of the Bible’s 180th  book verses….

180 "doing a 180", turning around, turning from sin, no turning back

Rom 7:19 For the good that I want, I do not do, but I practice the very evil that I do not want(Notice how Paul is saying he is doing exactly the opposite of what he wants to do -- Going the other way--doing a 180.)

Ecc 10:2 A wise man's heart {directs him} toward the right, but the foolish man's heart {directs him} toward the left. (Notice how 180 is related from going from one place to another)

Dan 6:12 Then they approached and spoke before the king about the king's injunction, "Did you not sign an injunction that any man who makes a petition to any god or man besides you, O king, for thirty days, is to be cast into the lions' den?"

Hos 13:8 I will encounter them like a bear robbed of her cubs, And I will tear open their chests; There I will also devour them like a lioness, As a wild beast would tear them. (robbed--Like thou shalt not steal—take away ---as well as a reference to being torn in two  ½ = 180)

John 5:14 Afterward Jesus *found him in the temple and said to him, "Behold, you have become well; do not sin anymore, so that nothing worse happens to you." (become well – turned around)

Exo 8:2 "But if you refuse to let {them} go, behold, I will smite your whole territory with frogs. (To let go is to let Israel go from Egypt back to dwelling with God—from from one place to another – separating from--dividing)
