The phrase "little while occurs 29 times in the Bible and this, along with other related twenty-nine number evidences, suggests number twenty-nine has something to do with the future return of Jesus Christ...
This post shows how #29 related verses in the Bible point us to symbolism related to this number. I know, virtually everyone has been taught the Bible's chapter and verse numbers are not part of the original text, but the evidence for the Bible's numbers being divinely inspired is virtually indisputable. See other posts in this blog or my website for a a full explanation.
The Bible's Number 29 -- An incredible number of the soon coming of Jesus to redeem the Godly
One of the most amazing number 29 related verses in the Bible is John 1:29 which says "The next day he saw Jesus coming to him and *said, "Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!". More evidence of the preciseness of the Bible's Numeric Map is that John 1:29 is the 2,929th verse of the New Testament.
Twenty-nine is related to many 999 type numbers. Ninety-nine is a way of expressing the last things done before the end of things. Other related numbers are 92, 99, 999 and even 911 (92). The 29th chapter of the New Testament is Mark chapter 1 which seems a summary overview of the events of Jesus return.
The phrase "in a little while" is in 29 verses - the return of the LordMy number research revealed for a long time that number 29 seemed related to the coming return of the Lord and then much later I noticed the phrase "little while" occurs in 29 Bible verses. My experience says this is not coincidence - the verse text also demonstrates strong references to the coming of the Lord down to earth. It appears this phrase speaks of times related to both his first and second coming. I suspect, if we could understand the message, it could be a clue to when the Lord will actually return.
