The Bible is entwined with numerical phenomena beyond human capability to produce, proving itself to be “given by inspiration of God”, though penned by men,
Both the hebrew and greek languages do not have a number system as we have; they do not have our 1, 2 , 3, 4 method of counting. These languages use their alphabet to represent numbers. Can you see that every word, phrase and sentence must therefore have a numerical value? Stay with me….
Suppose we did use our alphabet to represent number values, such as: a = 1, b = 2, c = 3, d = 4, and so on. The word big, for example, would have a numerical value of 18 (b = 2, i = 9, g = 7). ‘A big dog’ has a value of 45 (A = 1, big = 18, dog = 26). Well, we don’t use our alphabet that way, but hebrew and greek languages do. Therefore every word and sentence in the Bible has a numerical value (sum).
In the Bible are many wondrous numerical arrangements. We will look at one number only, 7, a number that represents God….
The Bible’s first sentence: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
Number of words (in hebrew, not english): 7.
Number of letters: 28, a multiple of 7 (4 x 7). Not a multiple of 6, 5, 3, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, but 7.
Number value of the three nouns: 777 (111 x 7).
Value of the one verb: 203 (29 x 7).
Value of first and last letters of the 7 words: 1393 (199 x 7).
Value of first and last letters of first and last words: 497 (71 x 7).
Someone found 30 features of the number 7 in this one short sentence, and calculated the probability this happening by chance 30,000,000,000, 000 to 1.
The word seven is written 287 (41 x 7) times, the word seventh 98 (14 x 7) times, the word sevenfold 7 times. Abraham received 7 blessings, there are 7 miracles in John, 7 gifts in Romans, 7 characteristics of wisdom in James, 7 titles of Christ in Hebrews. And on and on and on.
Figuratively, God has signed His Name throughout the Bible, assuring us He is indeed the author.
Jesus: “The words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.” Indeed they are.
Jesus: “I have given to them the words which You have given Me.” Indeed He did.
Jesus: “I am the way, the truth, and the life.” Indeed He is.
