Jeremiah Chapter 25 (the 770th Bible chapter)
V12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.
As I have explained in other blog posts, the Bible's text for like numbered book verses has a theme that somehow reflects the definition and symbolism for number seventy. By calling them "book verses" I am referring to all the verses of a book sequentially numbered in the same way chapter verses are numbered. For example, the 70th verse of the book of Revelation is Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. Notice how this 70th verse of Revelation speaks of believers persevering until the return of Jesus Christ to reign and rule on earth.
If you carefully observe the 70th book verses, you will notice a common theme of things coming to fruition or about being prepared for when a time of completion comes. In addition to this study revealing a deeper understanding of the meaning of number 70, it also demonstrates the incredible supernatural perfection of numbering of the Bible.
Number 70 – covenants – salvation – completion of times/events – becoming complete/saved
