Earthquakes and storms related to the 18 references to the word "ROCKS" in the Bible..

Earthquakes, storms, rocks and the Bible...

It is no coincidence the counts of the number of times words are used in the Bible have meaning. The counts relate to biblical themes the numbers are associated with and help us validate and discover the meanings of numbers. An easy to see example is related to how the word "ROCKS" is used in the Bible.

The word "ROCKS" occurs 18 times in scripture and 18 is a number often related to affliction, great sin and to the return of the Lord in the last days.  To help support the evidence for this theme there are other biblical numbers that have direct relationship to the number 18 and many of these are also shown reflected in these same 18 verses. The Number eighteen relates to these other numbers --  The number of the beast is 666 (3x6=18) and is found in Revelation 13:18. Eighteen is associated with affliction and with times before the end which is demonstrated in the related number 99 (9+9=18) as 99 is the last number before a new count starts with 100. It is the same for 999 and 1000. These numbers are about things that are yet to happen (the future) and often about the last things before something new begins.

I've written in earlier documents about number 29 which may be the strongest number related to the return of the Lord and 29 is another way of expressing both 99 and surprisingly 911 which is a number of warning to nations (Daniel 9:11). It is also worth noting how four of these verses have strong association to number 61 (16) as 61 is the 18th prime number-another association to number 18.. Two of the 18 verses have the same reference of 16:16 which is interesting in itself and it is worth noting that this can be a way of expressing 36 which is 2 times 18 and 6 times 6 which is 36 (666); All these numbers relate to sin and redemption.  For those new to biblical numeric's, such number associations seem contrived, but when you examine patterns in how numbers and text are related in the scriptures, the number relationships prove themselves to be real. One good example of this is another well known sin related biblical verse - Genesis 3:6 (2x18 or 36 or 3x6) which is the verse of original sin where Eve took of the fruit which God forbid.

As an example of the number text relationships of 18, 29, 36, 99, 61 and 911--following are eleven examples of the eighteen Bible verses that contain the word "ROCKS".  It seems no accident this word occurs 18 times in 18 verses and that they most all have to do with sin and God's wrath. Rocks are related to sin and are likely related to the biblical references to "stumbling block" or stone. These verses show that rocks are often associated to earthquakes and storms.and references to the Lord's return. These and other passages suggest that Jesus return is accompanied by earthquakes. Judge for yourself if you see the number/text pattern in these verses.

1Kin 19:11 ...behold, the LORD was passing by! And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains and breaking in pieces the rocks before the LORD; {but} the LORD {was} not in the wind. And after the wind an earthquake, {but} the LORD {was} not in the earthquake.

Matt 27:51 And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split.

Rev 6:15 ...the rich and the strong and every slave and free man hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains;

Rev 6:16 and they said to the mountains and to the rocks, "Fall on us and hide us...from the wrath of the Lamb;

Isa 2:21 In order to go into the caverns of the rocks and the clefts of the cliffs Before the terror of the LORD...When He arises to make the earth tremble.

Nahm 1:6 ...His wrath is poured out like fire And the rocks are broken up by Him.

Jer 16:16 "...they will hunt them from every mountain and every hill and from the clefts of the rocks.

Jer 4:29 At the sound of the horseman...every city flees; They go into the thickets and climb among the rocks; Every city is forsaken,....

Act 27:29 Fearing that we might run aground somewhere on the rocks, (storm on Paul's journey--caused by God?).

Isa 2:19 Men will go into caves of the rocks...Before the terror of the LORD ... He arises to make the earth tremble.

Amo 6:12 ...Yet you have turned justice into poison and the fruit of righteousness into wormwood, (chapter plus verse = 18)

Ten verses demonstrate astounding perfection of the Bible

THE PREMISE:: A commonly referenced set of verses demonstrate an unbelievable level of perfection iin the Bible's organization. Galatians 3:26 is a good starting verse for understanding how this can be possible; how a set of verses reveal a theme for the Biblical number 29; and finally helping interpret the message found in a related set of verses.

Gal 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.

Beware, on human terms the facts and conclusions written here are clearly an impossible coincidence, but the facts are also very difficult to dismiss. Assuming they are correct, they show us the works of God are more amazing than we can possibly imagine.

Galatians 3:26 is a good example verse that helps us see the theme associated with the Biblical number 29. This is the 29,129th Bible verse and one of only eleven verses that have a cross Bible verse number both starting and ending in 29. This article shows the strong association with this verse's text to the number theme for 29 which is prevalent in the verses numbering. The theme is determined by examining the similarity of the overall message running through each of a non-random set of selected verses.

Of the eleven similarly numbered 29*29 verses, the first is the 2929th Bible verse and the other ten are numbers 29n29 where n is one of the digits 0-9.  Why is this significant? Because I believe I can show that a simple number pattern allows us to uncovers verses with very similar themes in the text. The ability to do this with a pattern across many different numbers helps demonstrate the method of selection is very unlikely to be contrived or an imagined one that fits a preconceived outcome.

Through this interesting verse set I'll attempt to show the Bible’s perfection by being able to take any number from 10 to 99 to find all verses that have a Bible verse number both starting and ending with that number. This is a single example using the number 29 and is amazing in itself, yet not intended to prove the concept. Instead, I share it so others can evaluate the concept and decide for themselves if they believe it is possibile. Hopefully you will see through these example verses how this might work consistently across all numbers (10-99) and may be strong evidence for an impossible depth of perfection found in God’s Word – the Bible is an astounding book.

THE EXAMPLE: Upon examining our example verse of Galatians 3:26 and the ten other similarly numbered verses, we find  two different but closely related truths communicated by the text. First, that we are saved by the grace of Jesus and only through faith in him. Second, we are to be in subjection to Jesus to whom there is no distinction – we are saved by his mercy and nothing else. These reveal an aspect of the theme for the Biblical number 29 which research shows to have an even larger overall theme about the promised return of the messiah (not explained here). Number 29 is a number of Jesus return and this set of verses seems to be warning us of how he will judge each person when when this time comes.

Shown below is the full of the eleven verses that have Bible verse numbers starting and ending with 29. For the full text, consult your Bible as I’ve condensed them here to highlight the similarities of theme running through them. The verses do not all have the same message, but are strong in revealing the 29 theme because there are at least two number twenty-nines associated with each of their numbering. Observe the overall message of the text as well as the perfection in numbering. Rather than try and  explain how all the verses relate to each other, I hope a quick examination reveals a surprising and consistent message that communicates more than I could hope to in words. Prior to each verse is the cross bible verse number showing the common association to the number 29.. What do you think these verses say?

  • BV(2929)  Lev 8:11 He sprinkled some of it on the altar…to consecrate them (God’s saving blood)
  • BV(29029)  2Cor 12:6 For if I do wish to boast I will not be foolish…
  • BV(29129)  Gal 3:26 For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus.
  • BV(29229)  Eph 1:22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet
  • BV(29329)  Eph 5:24 But as the church is subject to Christ, so also the wives to their husbands
  • BV(29429)  Philp 3:7 But whatever things were gain to me… I have counted as loss
  • BV(29529)  Col 3:11 … there is no distinction between … Christ is all, and in all.
  • BV(29629)  1The 5:7 …those who sleep do their sleeping at night…v8 …be sober…put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation…
  • BV(29729)  1Tim 2:12 …not allow a woman to …exercise authority over a man…
  • BV(29829)  2Tim 2:1 … be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
  • BV(29929)  Titus 3:5 He saved us, not on the basis of deeds…but according to His mercy
There's not much more to explain without getting into a lot of detail. I hope you were as surprised as I was at their content. This is one of many number of examples I've proven this particular method of researching what I refer to as the Bible's Numeric Map. Incredibility, this concept can also be applied using similarly referenced chapter and verse numbers. An example you can see for yourself is found in the Bible's 3:16 verses.

In closing, did you happen to notice how the numbers of the verse reference for the example of  Galatians 3:26 add to the number 29? There's others in the list that do so as well. It is a shocking thing when you realize what it seems God has done--it is truly beyond comprehension.

More evidence for #92 and 9:22 - "The Word of the Lord Came to" - 92 times

It is very interesting and useful to count phrases in the scriptures. I use the NASB and find that, as a translation, it seems very consistent in translating words and phrases such that knowing how many times a phrase occurs can line up and help understand the themes of Biblical numbers.

In the previous post I explained how the Bible's 9:22 like referenced verses have a theme related to the Lord God making himself known to us. That he has made himself known to us; does make himself known to us; and will one day return to make sure everyone knows who he is. 29, 92 and 99 are all numbers related to the Lord coming and making himself known.

It is interesting to discover that the phrase "Then the word of the LORD came to.." occurs 92 times in the Bible and the last occurrence is found at Zechariah 7:8, the 92nd verse of the book and in chapter 7 which is the 918th chapter - I personally don't believe it is coincidence the 918 chapter number can be reduced in gematria style to 99 (or 2 nines). We all know history tells us all the reasons the Bible's structure cannot be numerically perfect but the evidence demonstrates the impossible has happened. How, I believe God worked through all the writers to get exactly what he wanted and they had no idea this was happening. We have a mighty God that is powerful beyond our wildest imagination.

In the same way that the Bible's 9:22 verses tell us God makes himself known to us, we find this phrase "The word of the Lord came to..." is directly related to the Lord making himself known to us. He tells us about himself.

More like referenced verses - 9:22 -- God, Jesus or fathers being made known

Like Ref verses 9:22 Things being made known to us—especially about the Lord God

How many times have you looked at a verse of scripture that you didn't understand and had little way to discern its meaning-- even your concordances and Bible helps didn't resolve your questions. As impossible as it sounds, a great tool for interpretation is provided right before you in the Bible. Knowing that like referenced Bible verses have a common theme running through them often gives you many verses to examine to help you with the one on which you are struggling. Following is an example where by understanding the theme for 9:22 verses you can better understand how in each occurrence of them God is showing that he has, will and is coming to reveal himself to us.

In the 25 Bible's verses that have a chapter and verse reference of 9:22 we find an theme that runs through all these verses tells us that God reveals himself to us. The theme appears mostly about Jesus being revealed to us but also seems to encompass fathers and even evil leaders being revealed as well. The theme also fits with the individual numbers of number 9 and 22. Nine is a number related to the future and watching for Jesus return. While we are in this 9th step of God's redemption plan, we are to be faithfully serving and telling others about Jesus. We see this strongly in the example at Acts 9:22 as it speaks of Saul in relationship to proving Jesus is the Christ. The number 22 is about Jesus the Suffering Servant that comes for his people - We see this clearly in the example at Luke 9:22 where Jesus speaks of the things he must do as our Messiah. These things demonstrate who he is. Helping to support this theme is realizing that 29 and 92 are both related to number 99 which represents end times numbers. 99 and 999 are specifically about the return of the Lord to reveal himself just prior to the judgments happening which are related to numbers 100 and 1000.

The nakedness of his father known and then made known to brothers...
Gen 9:22 Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brothers outside.

As you examine like referenced verses and their related themes, avoid too narrowly defining themes in your mind. Doing so will disguise the most correct theme. Remember, we are seeking to understand how God reveals himself through his word rather than try and make him fit an image of how he might construct themes. The more examples of like referenced verses you study the more you will be convinced these common themes exist. If you are not seeing clear themes, step back and examine the highest level theme you might find in the overall contents of each set of like referenced verses. Even though you might not be sure how to specifically define the themes, you should be able to observe how different the overall themes in each set are. Some verse sets you might begin to examine are: 3:16 verses—salvation from Jesus; 10:30 verses – God keeps score vengaence is mine; 20:2 verses-Authority of Kings/Jesus.

It's worth the effort to understand like referenced verses because knowing about the themes helps you discern the best interpretations of many verses in the Bible you are not quire sure about.
