In another post I explain how the Bible's chapter and verse numbers are divinely appointed as much as the text is (http://amazingword.blogspot.com/2010/01/like-referenced-verses-have-thread-of.html). As we are approaching the 23rd of April 2014, I thought I would look up what common thread of theme I would find in the Bible's 4:23 verses...
There are a total of 24 Bible verses with chapter and verse equal to "4:23". The ten I show below are pretty good evidence these verses often speak of God's Holy Spirit (or Jesus himself) coming to us or having been with us. In breaking down the chapter and verse number; number 23 is about God being with us (where two or three are gathered, he is in our midst (http://amazingword.blogspot.com/2010/01/like-referenced-verses-have-thread-of.html); and number four points to men, places or things of earth.
How do you use this information?Be watchful of every Bible number and be aware that by examining verses with like chapter and verse numbers, you can often observe clues as to interpretation of scripture you are studying.
