Astounding...Psalm 117 divinely ties together the Old and New Testament

In an earlier post I explained how Psalm 117 is the middle chapter of the Bible in terms of it's number of chapters and it is very unique in that this chapter contains just two verses. The exact middle of 1189 Bible chapters is the shortest and only one with just two verses.  It cannot be coincidence this unique chapter is found in the middle of the Bible--I concluded it must be an indication for us to realize the Bible is divinely numbered and ordered.  Years later, it absolutely astounded me when I realized the cross book numbers of these two lone verses of this middle chapter corresponded directly to the numbers associated with the last chapter of the Old Testament and the first chapter of the New Testament. The chapter that splits Bible chapters into two equal parts also points to the division of Old and New Testaments.

Psalm 117 verse 1 is the 1,929th verse of the book of Psalm and Malachi chapter 4 is the 929th chapter of the Old Testament. Psalm 117 verse 2 is the 1,930th verse of Psalm and Matthew chapter 1 is the 930th Bible chapter and the first chapter of the New Testament. So not only is Psalm 117 a unique two verse chapter positioned precisely in the middle of the Bible but it is also a chapter whose verses divinely link the Old Testament and New Testament into a single volume of God's Word. An amazing evidence of the DNA like numbering perfection of the Bible and that the Jesus of the New Testament is the same messiah told about throughout every book of the Old Testament.
