2Peter 3 - 1159th chapter, almost "midnight" - Jesus at the Door "midnight" - 11:59PM

2Peter 3 - 1159th chapter, almost "midnight" - Jesus at the Door "midnight" - 11:59PM

Be sure to read below about the number 1159 (11:59 PM) and midnight

Examine the following 13 verses that contain the word "midnight" a total of 14 times in the KJV. Note how they all have some relationship or meaning with being delivered or the Lord Jesus coming. Also consider the number 14 is a number of Jesus, King of Kings and Lord of lords - relating to the 14 times "midnight" is found in the Holy Bible.

#24 -- The Twenty chapter Twenty-Fours of the Bible Point to the Future Day of the LORD


The number twenty-four in the Holy Bible is clearly associated with the promised coming of Jesus Christ to resurrect the dead and judge the just and the unjust. One of the most compelling evidences of this association is the miracle of the 24,000th verse of the Holy Bible Matthew 24:42 which states "Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.". This is the 42nd verse (#24 in reverse) of the 24th chapter of Matthew referred to as the "Olivet Discourse" -  The conversation that Jesus had with His disciples on top of the Mount of Olives.

To sum up the associations of this verse with the number twenty-four:

  1. It is the 24,000th verse of the Holy Bible (ESV, NIV, NASB, KJV...)
  2. It is in the 24th chapter
  3. The chapter is about the coming "Day of the LORD" (24 hours)
  4. The verse is about the coming "Day of the LORD"
  5. It is the 42nd verse - the numbers 2 and 4 reversed (Gematria)
  6. It refers to this future day/hour (appointed time) (" know not what HOUR...")

As I have documented in many other articles, all numbers in the Holy Bible have consistent associations related to the number. Either to the number directly, some associations to the number (IE day and 24 hours), events associated with the number or labels/names associated with numbers, occurrence numbers in lists, etc.

One great way to see the consistency of numbers in scripture is to watch the Bible's chapter numbers. For example, I've included a list of every chapter 24 in the Holy Bible with a list of brief descriptions I have prepared to provide a hint at what the chapter is about. Virtually every chapter has some association or likeness to the future coming of the LORD Jesus Christ.

I hope after examining this list you might begin to conceive that God just might have divinely numbered our Bible. That's not as far-fetched an idea as you might guess as most believers already accept that God inspired and constructed the exact words in our Bible's text that was written over a period of 2000 years by 20 or so authors. Whose to say he did not pre-number the Bible's verses at the same time - keeping them hidden until he revealed them later to other men.

  • Gen 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Isaac comes for his bride. Abraham seeks wife for Isaac. God provides Rebecca.
  • Exo 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - The glory of the LORD appeared on mount Sinai-Moses called up before the LORD.
  • Lev 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Judgment, All who cursed the LORD were taken out of the camp and stoned.
  • Num 24 - #24 Balaam sees the Almighty and hears God—and says, a star will come and smite the wicked.
  • Deu 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Servants to be paid his wages at the appointed time(end of day) wives/divorce
  • Josh 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Choose this day whom you will serve;… but as for me…we will serve the LORD.
  • 1Sam 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - The LORD gives Saul into David's hands. David cut Saul's robe.
  • 2Sam 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - David sins and numbers people of Israel; As consequence, plague kills 70,000 men
  • 2Kin 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Nebuchadnezzar captures Jerusalem taking everything to Babylon.
  • 1Chr 24 - #24 Service to the LORD - David gives '24' divisions of priests and Levites for the temple service.
  • 2Chr 24 - #24 God said “Why do you sin against God, since you have forsaken God, he has now forsaken you”
  • Job 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - The wicked deny the Lord coming. They resist the Lord but later are removed.
  • Psa 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Who shall go up to heaven with The King of Glory?
  • Prov 24 - #24 Day of Judgment - Don't envy the wicked. In time, the candle of the wicked will be put out.
  • Isa 24 - #24 Day of the LORD – Apocalypse, it shall come to pass, that day the LORD shall reign in mount Zion
  • Jer 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - They shall be my people, and I will be their God--The good and bad figs
  • Eze 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Ezekiel in Babylon prophesying the Jerusalem siege has started that very day.
  • Matt 24 - #24 The Day (24 hours) of the LORD - Be alert, for you do not know what hour your Lord will come.
  • Luke 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - The empty tomb, Jesus had risen, reveals himself to the eleven.
  • Acts 24 - #24 Day of the LORD - Paul jailed for teaching a future resurrection/judgment of the just and unjust

 Watch the Bible's chapter numbers for amazing clues to what the content of chapters are about. You might start with chapter sixes which deal with the consequences of our sin and our need to turn from sin. Genesis chapter six is a good start.

Does the Bible Speak about August 2022 and End Time Events? The Bible's 8:22 verses seem to fit.

Just noticed today (August 2nd, 2022) that the Bible's 8:22 verses (8th month, 2022) seem all to point to prophesied events that will happen when most of the world ends up coming against Israel to destroy them. As Israel seems to be totally crushed The LORD will intervene to save Israel in a way that all will know it was God who saved Israel.

I am not making any predictions as I've been wrong many times about making assumptions about what Bible verse patterns mean. I am sure of the patterns, and that they have a message for us, but each person can look at them for themselves and decide.

See all the Bible's 8:22 verses below (24 of them). Note, number twenty-four is about The Day of the LORD (24 hours). See Matthew 24:42, the 24,000th verse of the Bible for evidence of this:

Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. (24,000th Bible Verse)


----- ALL LIKE REFERENCED VERSES (8:22) -- (24v)  

(NOTE: Don't expect all verses to fit a very specific topic. In all verse sets, I find about one-third to have a pretty easy to observe common theme. One-third a little more difficult to observe theme and the last third being difficult to see. The key to seeing these themes is understanding the great preponderance of how these themes surface no matter what verse set you examine. )

Isa 8:22 And they shall look unto the earth; and behold trouble and darkness, dimness of anguish; and they shall be driven to darkness.

Luke 8:22 Now it came to pass on a certain day, that he went into a ship with his disciples: and he said unto them, Let us go over unto the other side of the lake. And they launched forth.

Rom 8:22 For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.

Ezr 8:22 For I was ashamed to require of the king a band of soldiers and horsemen to help us against the enemy in the way: because we had spoken unto the king, saying, The hand of our God is upon all them for good that seek him; but his power and his wrath is against all them that forsake him.

John 8:22 Then said the Jews, Will he kill himself? because he saith, Whither I go, ye cannot come.

Matt 8:22 But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.  

Exo 8:22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.

1Kin 8:22 And Solomon stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the congregation of Israel, and spread forth his hands toward heaven:

Gen 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.

Jer 8:22 Is there no balm in Gilead; is there no physician there? why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered?

Act 8:22 Repent therefore of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee.

2Kin 8:22 Yet Edom revolted from under the hand of Judah unto this day. Then Libnah revolted at the same time.

Mrk 8:22 And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.

Num 8:22 And after that went the Levites in to do their service in the tabernacle of the congregation before Aaron, and before his sons: as the LORD had commanded Moses concerning the Levites, so did they unto them.

1Sam 8:22 And the LORD said to Samuel, Hearken unto their voice, and make them a king. And Samuel said unto the men of Israel, Go ye every man unto his city.

Prov 8:22 The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old.

2Cor 8:22 And we have sent with them our brother, whom we have oftentimes proved diligent in many things, but now much more diligent, upon the great confidence which I have in you.

#25 Jesus with us on earth as pointed out by the Bible's Divine Numbering

The Perfection of The Holy Bible's Numbering

There are 31,102 verses in the Holy Bible and if you number each verse from 1 to 31,102 these numbers can point you to amazing evidences God himself divinely numbered the Bible. Of course, we"know" this is humanly impossible, but at the same time know "nothing is impossible with God.

Mark 10:27 Looking at them, Jesus *said, "With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God."

Number Twenty-Five

The Number Twenty-Five -- We can learn what numbers mean (or symbolize) by watching what text they are associated with in scripture. The number 25 seems to be associated with someone coming into the presence of an authority. More specifically, we find solidly #25 influenced verses point to people coming before the physical presence of Jesus Christ. (By 'solidly #25 influenced' I refer to verses that strongly identify with '25' in their numbering). One of the best examples of a strong twenty-five verse is the 25,000th verse of the Bible. Below I have included it as well as the verse that follows:

BibleVerse 25000 - Luke 2:26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ. v27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law,

In this passage of scripture, we find Simeon who had been told by the Lord he would not die until he had seen the promised messiah. In this 25,000th verse statement we see Simeon's promise coming to pass as Jesus is brought to the temple for presentation, purification and circumcision. Clearly, this is evidence for the number twenty-five being related to Jesus being publicly presented to the world.

Taken by itself, this evidence for the meaning of number twenty-five is not strong enough for anyone to stand on, but it is a good starting place to investigate its meaning.

If you would examine all verse twenty-fives in the Bible you would find (to a lesser strength) how the meaning of a presence of one before authority likely fits. Some of the strongest evidences for this verse twenty-five meaning can be seen in the following passages:

Num 6:25 The LORD make His face shine on you, And be gracious to you;
Dan 9:25 "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
Dan 3:25 He said, "Look! I see four men loosed and walking about in the midst of the fire without harm, and the appearance of the fourth is like a son of the gods!"
Luke 2:25 And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies,
Rom 3:25 whom God displayed publicly as a propitiation in His blood through faith...  committed;

The Strongest Evidences - double association with the number twenty-five.

One of my most preferred ways to investigate the meaning of a number is to look at scriptures that are at least twice associated with the number. One of the best ways to do this is to look for verses where cross-bible verse numbers begin and end with the number.

You can see this evidence for yourself in a list of doubly twenty-five identified verses. Below is a complete list of every cross-bible verse number starting and ending with the number twenty-five. This method of searching number meanings eliminates the possibility of the results of the search being contrived in any way. The precision of numbers points us to a precise set of results. Note how we see the Lord's physical presence on earth before men in every instance.

BV(2525) Exodus 34:28 So he was there with the LORD forty days and forty nights; he did not eat bread or drink water. And he wrote on the tablets the words of the covenant, the Ten Commandments.

BV(25025) Luke 2:51 And He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and He continued in subjection to them; and His mother treasured all these things in her heart.

BV(25125) Luke 5:17 One day He was teaching; and there were some Pharisees and teachers of the law sitting there, who had come from every village of Galilee and Judea and from Jerusalem; and the power of the Lord was present for Him to perform healing.

BV(25225) Luke 7:29 When all the people and the tax collectors heard this, they acknowledged God's justice, having been baptized with the baptism of John.

BV(25325) Luke 9:23 And He was saying to them all, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow Me.

BV(25425) Luke 11:19 "And if I by Beelzebul cast out demons, by whom do your sons cast them out? So they will be your judges.

BV(25525) Luke 13:6 And He began telling this parable: "A man had a fig tree which had been planted in his vineyard; and he came looking for fruit on it and did not find any.

BV(25625) Luke 16:4 'I know what I shall do, so that when I am removed from the management people will welcome me into their homes.'

BV(25725) Luke 18:36 Now hearing a crowd going by, he began to inquire what this was.

BV(25825) Luke 20:45 And while all the people were listening, He said to the disciples,

BV(25925) Luke 22:60 But Peter said, "Man, I do not know what you are talking about." Immediately, while he was still speaking, a rooster crowed.


Hopefully I have demonstrated how we can search out the meaning of numbers in scripture as well as showing the consistency in the patterns of meaning for the number twenty-five. More importantly, by observing these perfect patterns and scripture/numbering associations you will have observed incredible evidence the LORD God himself could have been the only one who could have created this DNA-like perfection in the Word of God.

Revealing the secret concealed and sealed up words of Daniel 12:9 "Go your way, Daniel, these words are concealed and sealed up until the end time.

Revealing the secret concealed and sealed up words of Daniel 12:9

In Daniel chapter 12, The Lord reveals some of the details of the last 3 ½ years of end times tribulation. But when Daniel asks about what the final ending of these events are, The Lord says this information is “concealed”, not to be revealed until the end times. Note, it does not say the details are not included, but that they are concealed as in kept out of view or like carrying a concealed weapon.

Definition of concealed
 kept out of sight or hidden from view,
IE  carrying a concealed weapon

“concealed,” Dictionary, Accessed 7/9/2021.

The text in Daniel 12:9 suggests the answer to Daniel’s question is simply hidden from view until the time comes to reveal it later. I suspect that at least some of the answer Daniel was seeking is contained in the Holy Bible’s other 12:9 verses. See my other blog posts ( for more information about the common themes found in Like Referenced Verses. In short, every set of verses in scripture, with the same chapter and verse number, contain a common theme that helps interpret deeper meanings in the text. The common theme in the 12:9 verses appear to be about the second half of the seven-year tribulation events.

Examine the text of Daniel chapter 12 below while considering these points:

  •  In Dan 12:8 Daniel asks "My lord, what will be the outcome of these events?"
  •  Notice the yellow highlighted text below contains the word conceal – Interesting.
  •  In Dan 12:9 The Lord responds “these words are concealed until the end time” (days we are living in?)
  • If you look at the like-referenced 12:9 verses of the Bible consider if you think their theme is related to the theme of Dan 12:9?
  • At the bottom of this article is an example of HYPER LIKE-REFERENCED verses showing how chapter and verse relate to verse text in the Bible’s 14:14 verses.
