On November 29, 1947 (11/29/47), in an historic event, the UN voted to create the nation of Israel. On this date, Israel was approved to become a nation – an event that was prophesied by God, more than 2000 years before, to one day occur. The people of Israel would not actually declare their independence until the next year on May 14, 1948 and did not finally take over Jerusalem until June 7, 1967 at the end of the 6 day war – 6 days they fought and the 7th day they rested (67) – occurred on 6/7/1967 (written about in other blog posts).
The number 29 in the Bible is very consistently related to the symbolism of the return of the Lord when he comes to free his people. As impossible as it sounds, the Bible’s DNA like perfection in numbering reveals that chapter and verse numbers of the Bible can be taken together to have a direct correspondence to messages contained in the text. I often look for common patterns in like referenced verses to understand a number’s symbolism. Since I have found many historic dates that seem to have numbers that associate to those same numbers in Biblical symbolism, I recently decided to look at the Bible’s nineteen verses that have chapter and verse 11:29 to see if their theme somehow relates to the 11/29/1947 date when Israel took their first step to become a nation. The evidence of these verses being symbolically related to this historic event seems compelling and this article will hopefully demonstrate this possibility. On November 29th, it appears God was clearing the way for Israel to become a nation, and in the Bible’s 11:29 verses we see many instances where the Lord seems to be, in various ways, calling and delivering his people.
Although the pattern is not obvious in every 11:29 verse, there is a preponderance of evidence in the text that speaks specifically of the Lord calling out and leading his people to the Promised Land. The Bible’s DNA like pattern is so precise that it seems clear these verses are not just about people being delivered, but about the process of delivering them – a pattern that is pretty difficult to dismiss as coincidental.
Below is a list of the most compelling examples of these 19 verses having a reference of chapter 11, verse 29. Using the examples, you can confirm the pattern for yourself or evaluate them to discern if you see any sort of a pattern in them. Of course, most people’s first reaction is that such supposed similarities are likely a result of coincidence - that might be a good explanation except that you can examine like referenced verses throughout the Bible, and for any verse chapter/verse combination, observe a common theme running in them. One such similar pattern that has been noticed and mentioned by many scholars (yet dismissed as coincidence) is the “God so loved the world” like message found in many of the Bible’s 3:16 verses (John 3:16, 2 Cor 3:16, 1John 3:16, Exodus 3:16, Ruth 3:16, 1Samuel 3:16, Joel 3:16…). This is a wondrous pattern you can examine for yourself in your own Bible.
While you are looking at the following list of 11:29 verses (or others you can find in your own Bible), be aware that numbers have both a positive and negative/opposite symbolism, so you will find some 11:29 related text that seems to refer to themes that represent the opposite meaning of being delivered. You might need to read through the list multiple times before the pattern starts to become clear to you. Be discerning, yet open-mined to the mysteries of God, as you examine the evidence.
Jer 32:27 "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?"
Examples of the Bible’s 11:29 verses showing a pattern of God in the process of delivering his people:
Deu 11:29 "It shall come about, when the LORD your God brings you into the land where you are entering to possess it… (The Lord leading the people out of bondage...to save them)
Judg 11:29 Now the Spirit of the LORD came upon Jephthah, so that he passed through Gilead and Manasseh…(very similar in nature to the Deu 11:29 passage)
Dan 11:29 "At the appointed time he will return and come into the South, … (the appointed deliverer will come for you)
Matt 11:29 "Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOULS. (The Lord calling his people)
Mrk 11:29 Jesus said.."I will ask you one question…then I will tell you by what authority I do these things. (Jesus has came into Jerusalem, cleared the temple, condemned religious leaders and more – demonstrating how he was delivering his people).
Luke 11:29 …"This generation is a wicked generation; it seeks for a sign…no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonahd. (the sign to be given is that he will restore life as he did with Jonah)
John 11:29 when she heard it, she got up quickly and was coming to Him. (Jesus had returned and was calling for Mary – later in this 1008th Bible chapter about being restored (18=9+9 or 2x9), Lazarus was restored to life.)
Act 11:29 in the proportion that any of them had means, each of them determined to send a contribution for the relief of the brethren… (a restoring contribution was “determined”, not yet sent)
Rom 11:29 for the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. (again, about God calling those he is, or will, restore)
Heb 11:29 By faith they passed through the Red Sea as though they were passing through dry land… (The Lord delivering his people - again, like the Deu 11:29 example)
Above are the most compelling ten of a total of the 19 Bible verses with chapter and verse of 11:29. Others not shown here reveal a similar pattern. These examples are not intended as proof of the common theme running through 11:29 verses, but are intended to get you wondering if God could have designed such mysteries into his word? No one set of examples will convince you, but the more examples you observe, the more you will be convinced the patterns cannot be the result of anything but the design of a supernatural and divine and loving God.
