The pattern of 7:14 verses -- calling to God's people to be saved...

The Bible's 37 "7:14" referenced verses all have a theme running through them about how nations are called to enter his kingdom - some listen and enter, and others are lost. As our best known example of one of these verses, many of us know 2Chronicles 7:14 where the Lord God tells his people (the nation) to call to him and he will save them...
2Chr 7:14 ...if My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
You will find a similar theme in the Bible's other 7:14 verses --- The miracle of like referenced verses containing a common theme can be seen in the Bible's 7:14 verses. The patterns of Biblical numerics shows the 7:14 verse reference is also related to God's number 777 that has a related theme about salvation offered by God. Further demonstrating this number/theme relationship is the total of 37 "7:14" verses in the Bible - 37 is another number relating to 777 (three sevens - 7&7&7). The pattern of these 7:14 verses is about peoples, nations, or groups being called by the Lord to enter his kingdom - or about those called who are not entering. See if you don't see these themes running in the examples I've shown below. If you ponder these examples for awhile, I think it will be difficult to dismiss this number/theme relationship as a product of coincidence. The Bible's book, chapter and verse numbers are precisely how the Lord intended them.

7:14 verses showing a common theme of nations/peoples called to God's kingdom...
Gen 7:14 they and every beast after its kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creeps on the earth after its kind, and every bird after its kind, all sorts of birds. (all the saved creatures, called by God, entering the ark) 
Exo 7:14 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Pharaoh's heart is stubborn; he refuses to let the people go. (a nation not being allowed to enter the kingdom)

Deu 7:14 "You shall be blessed above all peoples; there will be no male or female barren among you or among your cattle. ("blessed" seems a reference to being saved wherever it is used)

2Sam 7:14 "I will be a father to him and he will be a son to Me; when he commits iniquity, I will correct him with the rod of men and the strokes of the sons of men,

Isa 7:14 "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.


Jer 7:14 therefore, I will do to the house which is called by My name, in which you trust, and to the place which I gave you and your fathers, as I did to Shiloh.


Eze 7:14 'They have blown the trumpet and made everything ready, but no one is going to the battle, for My wrath is against all their multitude.


Dan 7:14 "And to Him was given dominion, Glory and a kingdom, That all the peoples, nations and {men of every} language Might serve Him. ....


Mic 7:14 Shepherd Your people with Your scepter, The flock of Your possession Which dwells by itself ....


Zech 7:14 "but I scattered them with a storm wind among all the nations whom they have not known. Thus the land is desolated behind them so that no one went back and forth, for they made the pleasant land desolate."


Matt 7:14 "For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.


Mrk 7:14 After He called the crowd to Him again, He began saying to them, "Listen to Me, all of you, and understand:


John 7:14 But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and began to teach.
(calling his people to him)

Rev 7:14 ... "These are the ones who come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

In a bit of a different way, the Bible's 14:7 verses reflect a similar theme...
Psa 14:7 Oh, that the salvation of Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores His captive people, Jacob will rejoice, Israel will be glad.

Prov 14:7 Leave the presence of a fool, Or you will not discern words of knowledge.

Eze 14:7 ".. anyone of the house of Israel or of the immigrants who... separates himself from Me... I the LORD will be brought to answer him in My own person.

Hos 14:7 Those who live in his shadow Will again raise grain, And they will blossom like the vine. His renown {will be} like the wine of Lebanon.

Luke 14:7 And He began speaking a parable to the invited guests when He noticed how they had been picking out the places of honor {at the table,} saying to them,

John 14:7 "If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; from now on you know Him, and have seen Him."

Rev 14:7 and he said with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters."
Don't worry if you don't see the theme in all the examples, but do let the examples that do fit, cause you to wonder if God really could have inspired biblical references - of course God could have done this - the question is simply if he did?
