Numbers 22 and 14 found associated with Exodus 25:18 are strong clues associating the cherubim with Jesus and the Mercy Seat - The Mercy Seat sits above the Ark of the Covenent and is where Christ will one day rule from. There are lots of questions about this seat and new details helping us understand it are valuable. A significant clue about its nature is found in the verse at Exodus 25:18 which tells of the Cherubim found on each side of the Mercy Seat -- "You shall make two cherubim of gold, make them of hammered work at the two ends of the mercy seat. This is the 2214th Bible verse which is made up of two of the most common numbers associated with Jesus; #22 for Jesus the suffering servant; and #14 for Jesus the King and Savior of the World. Coincidence? Not likely, but it is also not clear what the full meaning of this association is. For those who study such things, the Bible's numeric map provides clues we've never had before about this special place. It seems certain these numbers associate Jesus with this throne the messiah will one day rule from.
