The Bible's Symbolism associated with #17; Think Judgment for wicked and blessings for the faithful. Recent Tweets

Just a quick post that contains Twitter Tweets I posted this month regarding evidence the Holy Bible (IE KJV and similar) provides to help us understand the number 17. This post was done on January 17, 2017 at about 3:00am CST (Texas) time.

Also consider this for evidence as to the perfection of how God has numbered every book, chapter and verse in the Bible from cover to cover. Every book and chapter in the perfect order. This is marked by Psalm 117 being the exact middle chapter of the Bible and Psalm 103:1-2 being the exact middle verses. Both locations declare Bless the LORD or Praise the LORD twice.

Here's my recent Tweets regarding #17.

  • #17 symbolism 1/17/2017 17,000th verse; Prov 21:15 It is joy to the just to do judgment: but destruction shall be to the workers of iniquity
  • #17 related to the flood; Gen 8:4 the ark rested in 7th month on 17th of the month.. #8 - Is 188th ver in 8th chap where remnant of 8 saved
  • #17 in Bible numbering. 171st verse of Genesis 7:11 in 2nd mth, 17th day.. the fountains of the deep opened up and windows of heaven opened

  • #17 on Jan 17, 2017; #17 meaning in Isaiah 17; Damascus to be removed from being a city. In that day people will have regard for their maker
  • #17 symbolism found in Jeremiah chap 17; Judah's sin. Obey God and Jerusalem will be inhabited forever or else "day of destruction comes"
  • 1/17/2017; #17 in Ezekiel chapter 17; Judah broke alliance with Babylon and asked Egypt for help. Judah will be punished for their sin
  • 1/17/2017; #17 assoc in Matthew 17; Moses and Elijah appear w/Jesus at transfiguration. He comes down mountain drives demon out of lunatick
  • 1/17/2017 #17 in Luke 17; Day of the LORD second coming foretold. Be on guard. Just as in days of Noah disaster will come and shock everyone

  • God's #17 is about JUDGMENT. flood/blood. Don't dismiss the miracle of supernatural numbering of KJV Bible. See 17:17 verses.  #KJV
  • Beyond coincidence? Psa 77:17 Rain Storm-thunder-lightening-#17 is a flood nbr; ark rose/rested on
  • 17th This is 1171th ver of Psa #scripture
  • #17 is a flood nbr--the 177th verse of Genesis; Gen "7:17" the flood came on the earth for 40 days and the water rose and lifted up the ark

Why did Jesus weep when Mary was upset that he was not there when Lazarus died? John 11:35

John 11:35 Jesus wept. 

Why did Jesus weep?  As we read in John chapter 11, Jesus was troubled and wept after Mary had come falling at his feet in grief saying:
John 11:32 Therefore, when Mary came where Jesus was, she saw Him, and fell at His feet, saying to Him, "Lord, if You had been here, my brother would not have died."
The near automatic response to why Jesus wept is that he was also sad that Lazarus had died. But there may be another better reason that is hidden in the teaching for this chapter.

If you examine this chapter, its focus is to teach that those believing in Jesus will never die, but be will be risen on the last day (see v24,25,26,27,40,42,45...). Jesus knew Lazarus was dead but had called this sleep (v11). He would not likely be sad for someone that was not dead. Is there another reason he would be sad?

Consider reading the story with the possible understanding that Jesus wept because he was sad and troubled people did not yet understand what he had taught them. He was weeping for those that did not yet believe and very possibly because, they believed when he was there, but lost their belief when he was gone. I came up with this possibility after looking at the Bible's like referenced verses for chapter and verse 11:35.

I'm writing this post to again demonstrate the power of using the Bible's like referenced verses to gain a better understanding of any verse in scripture. Like referenced verses contain at least a small thread of common meaning running through all of them. By discerning a common theme, we can use it to help us understand or confirm the meaning of any verse we are looking at. In this case, John 11:35 "Jesus Wept".

Below I have listed all the Bible's 11:35 verses and have taken some time to ponder over them looking for a common meaning.  After my short analysis, I believe a strong clue to the answer is in these verses. Note how the underlined statements speak of something that was learned or achieved or was lost or taken away.  In each case, people had something, but it was now gone.
Lev 11:35 '…on which part of their carcass may fall becomes unclean;…they are unclean and shall continue as unclean to you.
Judg 11:35 …..my daughter! You have brought me very low,…for I have given my word to the LORD, and I cannot take it back."
1Kin 11:35 but I will take the kingdom from his son's hand and give it to you, even ten tribes.
Dan 11:35 "Some of those who have insight will fall, in order to refine, purge and make them pure until the end time;…
Luke 11:35 "Then watch out that the light in you is not darkness.
Rom 11:35 ..WHO HAS FIRST GIVEN TO HIM THAT IT MIGHT BE PAID BACK TO HIM AGAIN?
Heb 11:35 Women received back their dead by resurrection;..others were tortured…so they might obtain a better resurrection;
When you examine these verses it is very quickly observed that three of them speak of taking things back (Judges, Romans, Hebrews). This is not such a common expression that you would expect it to be found in a small set of random verses taken from scripture, so it is a fair clue about a possible common aspect to the theme of these verses. Next, we look to see if this clue somehow applies to the other verses in the set? It takes some analysis, but eventually I conclude that the other verses also speak of things going from clean to unclean or from light to dark (Lev, 1Kings, Daniel, Luke). It seems the common thread of meaning in these verses is about someone going from believing to unbelief or from clean to unclean. How might this apply to the Lazarus story?

Why did Jesus weap?  I believe it was because Jesus had taught both Mary and Martha and other disciples that those who believed in him would not die. They exclaimed that they did believe this. But now, when Jesus was not with them, they had lost that confidence or belief in what Jesus had taught them. It seems to be that Jesus was sad and troubled at their unbelief.

Of course, I might be incorrect in my analysis and each person can evaluate this possibility on their own. More importantly my purpose was to explain and give a good example of how the Bible's numbering perfection and Like Referenced Verses is a valuable tool in our Bible study. This blog has many other examples and explanations of how Like Referenced Verses can be used. I hope you get a chance to explore them yourself the next time you need to gain deeper understanding about a verse of scripture.

--------------
NOTE: The following three 11:35 verses were not part of my analysis because they are more difficult to discern how they might share a common theme. When I look at like referenced verses, there are always a few that I find I can't attribute to a similar theme. I accept this as a normal aspect to all patterns I look at. 30% or so do not fit.
Num 11:35 From Kibroth-hattaavah the people set out for Hazeroth, and they remained at Hazeroth.
Neh 11:35 Lod and Ono, the valley of craftsmen.
1Chr 11:35 Ahiam the son of Sacar the Hararite, Eliphal the son of Ur,

Definition of number 2 is about Jesus, Love, being joined together and a redeemer has come for us. 2nd book, Exodus Moses delivers God's People 2:22 Bible verses

Just a quick post to share one of the best examples of the Bible Like Referenced Verse Sets that help us understand the meaning of God's numbers. As I've mentioned in many other blog posts, like referenced verses of the Bible have a common theme of meaning running through them. When the chapter and verse numbers are the same, such as in the Bible's 2:22 verses, we find themes that are very reflective of the symbolism of that number (IE number 2).

The number two is symbolic of these types of things; Jesus (who is 2nd to God); a redeemer who is sent to ave us; things joined together or things in pairs, love and other similar themes. Of course, like all numbers, each has positive and negative symbolism, so number two can also be related to things opposite to these meanings such as; things that take us away from God, things that don't love, things being separated or torn apart, etc.

I've explained the meaning of God's numbers 1-10 in several other places in this blog.

Below I've provided a list of most of the Bible's 38 verses that have a chapter and verse reference of 2:22. Observe them to better understand the hyper number 2 (#2 three times) and what symbolism the Bible's associates with this number. Watch for these in your Bible reading and they will help teach you how to discern the meanings of Biblical numbers.

If you observe them, eventually, you will be surprised in a tremendous heart-felt way, how holy, the HOLY BIBLE truly is.
