Chapters Jesus will: 911--shake heavens; 912 come down; 913 measure Jerusalem

It seems logical that three Bible chapters in sequence might tell of Jesus return, but we don't notice this progressive sequence of chapter events when they cross book boundaries. When we understand the meaningful nature of the Bible's numbering, (in this case the cross Bible chapter numbers), we can use the guide of themes for these numbers to understand their contents. Bible chapter numbers help us see that Haggai chapter 2 followed by Zechariah chapters 1 and 2 are three successive chapters that give a picture of events leading up to, and following Jesus second return.

The 911th, 912th and the 913th chapter of the Bible appear to foretell the return of the Lord. Haggai 2, the 911th Bible chapter is the warning of his imminent return; the next and 912th chapter gives the vision of his actual return; and the following 913th chapter reveals the Lord on earth ready to take his first action of measuring Jerusalem. These three chapters and the ones surrounding them seem to be an agenda of events regarding the very last days.

The 911th chapter: Stern warnings of the Lord's return - "in a little while"
The following verses from Haggai chapter 2 help demonstrate how the chapter is about warning of the Lord's return. The phrase "in a little while" tells us it is about something yet to happen and may even be an indication of when (see note below).
"For thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. v7 'I will shake all the nations; and they will come with the wealth of all nations, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD of hosts. Haggai 2:6-7
The closing verse of the chapter at 2:23 specifically mentions "that day" in reference to the day of the Lord helps us confirm the #911 related theme. (other Numeric Map related numbers also help confirm the theme).

Normally we would not notice a sequence of events in successive chapters crossing book boundaries, but when you begin to understand the Bible's perfect structure through the numeric map, you will see the Bible as a single volume with 1189 chapters which is separated into book-like sections. So, of the chapters are successive,  it would not be sprirising to find the next chapter telling of Jesus actual return - and that's exactly what we find in Zechariah chapter 1.

Note, the phrase "a little while" found in Haggai 2:6 happens to occur in 29 Bible verses which is more support for the theme of the numbers #911, #29 and #92. These 29 verses appear to all be related to the theme of #29 about the return of the Lord and can be separated into two categories related to timeframes of the first and second coming of Jesus - the time Jesus is on earth prior to his ascension, and the time until his return.  see definition for number #29 on web site for more about this.

We know in the last chapter of Haggai we read about the warnings of the Lord's, and now in Zechariah 1, the 912th chapter we read about his actual return - the vision of Jesus actually touching down on earth which is commonly called the second return of the Lord. Following is a conversation with Jesus from that chapter that shows this is a vision of real conversation between the Lord and Zechariah on earth. I would not read this as if it were a dream but rather as a real vision from God - as if God played a movie for him.

Zech 1:8 I saw at night, and behold, a man was riding on a red horse, and he was standing among the myrtle trees which were in the ravine, with red, sorrel and white horses behind him.
Zech 1:10 And the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered and said, "These are those whom the LORD has sent to patrol the earth."

The 913th chapter: Jesus first actions upon touching down to earth 
The next chapter in sequence is Zechariah 2, the 913th chapter which shows Jesus beginning to take his first action promised upon his return. Here are the first verses of this chapter that tell of Jesus going out to perform his first task:
Zech 2:1 Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a man with a measuring line in his hand.
Zech 2:2 So I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see how wide it is and how long it is."
Zech 2:3 And behold, the angel who was speaking with me was going out, and another angel was coming out to meet him,
The 3 chapters tell of Jesus return and confirm the 911 theme of Haggai 2
Beginning with chapter #911 which is the last chapter of Haggai, these three successive chapters help confirm the 911th chapter is actually about the warnings of Jesus imminent second return that will begin with a shaking of the heavens. I suspect we are seeing many of these warnings in our world today - which seem to indicate his second coming is very near.

A supernatural likeness of the Bible's 6:12 verses reveal themes about sin, confession and offerings of atonement

I sometimes hesitate to write about how the Bible's chapter and verse numbers are God inspired and have a direct correspondence to the message in their text, but the evidence is sometimes so compelling that I feel it is worth sharing so others can see this numeric perfection for themselves. For those of you that are convinced this is impossible, remember that God says he does the impossible - then take a few seconds to check out the evidence for yourself.

There are forty verses in the Bible with a verse reference of 6:12... and at first glance they seem obviously related to sin and repentance, but as I happened upon them today, I observed one of them at Daniel 6:12 is one I also write about in relationship to the number 180 because it is both the 180th verse of Daniel, and has a message related to the theme of 180 which is that of turning direction. (when thinking of the 180 theme, compare it to a 180 degree angle which is two straight lines in opposite directions from each other). I then noticed that numbers in verse reference of 6:12 can be added to make 18 which I know to be related to #180 with the theme of sin and turning from sin. I know this sounds like number soup, but I think if you take a quick look at a few of the 6:12 evidence verses provided below you will observe the correspondence between the text of the verses and the number pattern. Interesting evidence for the theme for 18/180 is also found in Revelation 13:18 which speaks of the number of the beast being 666 which also can be seen as 6+6+6 or 18. The Numeric Map's perfection is also revealed by seeing how this verse relates to 18 by its presence in the 1180th chapter of the Bible, and is the 229th verse of Revelation - 2x9=18 (these number relationships may sound contrived, but 1000's of Biblical examples demonstrate these same gematria related numeric patterns).

The relationship of the verse reference number of  6:12 appears directly related in both textual theme and number meaning to numbers 18 and 180. Their themes are related to direction and can be revealed in text that tells of; turning in an opposite directions; changing direction; turning away from God - sinning; turning toward God - repenting; things opposing or opposite of each other; or still other turning/directional themes.

Below are 21 of the Bible's 40 verses with a reference of 6:12 that provide the most clear evidence for the text/verse reference relationship (ones not included here are also consistent with the theme). As you take a quick look at these 180 related verses, consider how strong their relationship to the 180 theme and how many of them are well known Bible verses related to sin, confession and offerings for sin. Even if you are tempted to dismiss these as just interesting coincidences - with the many other evidences I present about the Bible's DNA like Numeric Map, at some point the average person should begin to wonder if there is something supernatural about this numeric pattern in scripture.

Look for the 180 theme of turning direction or sin and repentence in these 21 verses with the 6:12 (18) reference number...

Things sinful or who have turned away from God
Gen 6:12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth.
Exo 6:12 But Moses spoke…saying, "Behold, the sons of Israel have not listened to me; how then will Pharaoh listen to me…
Prov 6:12 A worthless person, a wicked man, Is the one who walks with a perverse mouth,
Amo 6:12 …you have turned justice into poison And the fruit of righteousness into wormwood,
Rom 6:12 Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts,
Rev 6:12 I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth

Confessing sin and seeking forgiveness-offerings for sin
Matt 6:12 And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.
Mrk 6:12 They went out and preached that men should repent.
1Tim 6:12 Fight the good fight of faith…you made the good confession in the presence of many witnesses.
Est 6:12 …Mordecai returned to the king's gate. But Haman hurried home, mourning, with his head covered.
Lev 6:12 'The fire on the altar shall be kept burning…he shall lay out the burnt offering on it, and offer up in smoke the fat portions of the peace offerings on it.
Num 6:12 and shall dedicate to the LORD…and shall bring a male lamb a year old for a guilt offering
Luke 6:12 It was at this time that He went off to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in prayer to God.
2Chr 6:12 Then he stood before the altar of the LORD in the presence of all the assembly of Israel and spread out his hands.

Turning an opposite direction, things opposed/opposite or toward.
Eph 6:12 …our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness…
2Cor 6:12 You are not restrained by us, but you are restrained in your own affections.
Dan 6:12 …Did you not sign an injunction that any man who makes a petition to any god or man besides you…is to be cast into the lions' den?" The king replied, "The statement is true, according to the law…may not be revoked."
Ezr 6:12 "May the God who has caused His name to dwell there overthrow any king or people who attempts to change it
Jer 6:12 "Their houses shall be turned over to othersI will stretch out My hand Against the inhabitants of the land," declares the LORD.
Deu 6:12 then watch yourself, that you do not forget the LORD who brought you from the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.
Judg 6:12 The angel of the LORD appeared to him and said to him, "The LORD is with you, O valiant warrior."

The chapter and verse reference of any verse provides clues to its message and by examining other like reference verses your interpretation of scripture will be more accurate. I have found many times when I was not quite sure of what the text of a verse was about until I examined other verses with the same reference number. The Bible's Numeric Map is more than a curiosity - it is a guide to interpreting the Bible.

If you doubt God or Jesus - God's Word declares "if you seek me, I will let you find me". God is not interested in convincing you...

I understand that many people don't believe in God; or that Jesus is his only son; or that the Bible is God's inspired word. We can't truly believe until we have seen or experienced God. Why have we not seen God - because we have not looked.  God said he left evidence for himself everywhere we look, and he promised he will reveal himself to those that earnestly seek him out--God cannot and does not break his promises. There's plenty of evidence to be convinced there is a creator - more than enough to cause us to want to know more about him.  My favorite place to suggest where people might see evidence of God is to have them truly ponder the artwork of God in the animal world - can anyone truly imagine the designs, patterns and brilliant colors of nature simply evolved through random chance of how the DNA happened to line up? To dismiss these works of art, is to dismiss God.

Assuming God exists, I think everyone would agree he could convince the entire world of his existence in an instant if he desired to do so...(actually, one day he will, but then it will be too late to make a decision). God made the universe, and makes the rules, and has told us he will reveal himself to those that seek to know him. One way to look at why he might have decided this is to consider that if God did the supernatural events that would force us to accept him, he would be forcing people to want to be with him. That is not his plan nor his intention. Consider, if we were to seek our spouses in that way -to make who we desired love us we might drag them off to a cave and make them live with us -  or else! Or we could threaten them enough to force them to "love" us. That would be unthinkable to us - why would we assume a perfect God would force us to love him?

But maybe you don't reject God, but do reject Jesus?
But what if you don't reject God, but don't believe Jesus is his only son who he sent to save the world? Instead of learning about God's plan, you lived your life largely ignoring God and taking advantage of all the great stuff he provided for us.  So imagine the end comes in one form or another, and you are all of a sudden standing before Jesus...he asks "Why didn't you seek to know God?". Your answer is likely some form of "I was not concerned enough, or did not care enough about you to bother to look" - "I was busy with my own desires" - not much of an excuse. Not that any excuse will work - we made our decision for whatever reason and it will then be too late to change. The consequences of such a decision are unthinkable -  we have been warned.

How do find out about God?
God says over and over again in the Bible that we will only find him if we seek him with all our heart. That does not mean we need to believe in him to find him - but just that our hearts need to have enough desire to seek to learn about him. This assumes you have looked around the earth and concluded there must be a creator - a God that made everything. Your honest search will not come up lacking - God promises,  "If you seek him, he will let you find him".

Verses about this promise of God...

Deu 4:29 "...you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul.

1Chr 28:9 "...the LORD searches all hearts, and understands every intent of the thoughts. If you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will reject you forever.

2Chr 15:2 ...the LORD is with you when you are with Him. And if you seek Him, He will let you find Him; but if you forsake Him, He will forsake you.

2Chr 15:4 "But in their distress they turned to the LORD God of Israel, and they sought Him, and He let them find Him.

2Chr 15:15 ...they had sworn with their whole heart and had sought Him earnestly, and He let them find Him...

Prov 8:17 "I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me.

Jer 29:13 'You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Jer 29:14 'I will be found by you,' declares the LORD...'

John 1:45 Philip found Nathanael and said to him, "We have found Him...Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph." (notice, Jesus did not find them, they found him)

Some other verses to ponder...there is still time...

1Cor 2:14 But a natural man does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually appraised.

2The 2:11 ...For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false,

Heb 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

I don't think it is so unusual to doubt all these things, so that's not really a problem - we all have had serious doubts at some time. The problem is not in doubting, but in not caring enough to find out what the truth is.

Is the rapture or "catching up" a real and important teaching of the Bible?

Without trying to present all the places in the Bible that both model the future catching up/rapture of the godly and teach about it directly, I wanted to share a couple simple aspects as to why it is important...(taken from a comment I left on another discussion board)...

I'm confident for myself the rapture is a real and much looked forward to promise of Jesus. I don't think that believing in the Rapture is a deal breaking aspect of salvation, but do think there are very important aspects of the teaching that those who dismiss it may not be considering. When Jesus left he said he would return and that believers are to be watching for his return while serving and giving others our testimony so they might believe as well. Along with this, there is promised end times wrath with his return, and the reason for the catching up of the faithful is so they will not have to suffer this terrible wrath when it comes.

The word rapture is not in the Bible and even the word Bible is not there – no matter what we call it, the teaching is there. Knowing about this future catching up is important to help us be motivated to be saved. Biblical teachings today so often avoid the ugly consequences of not being saved which are stated over and over again in the text. People need to worry about these things as they are key to the message of the gospel. If you understand end times events, then not to have a rapture like event places even the saved under the terrible wrath of God. It all fits together.

One of many examples in the Bible of the modeling or foreshadowing of the catching up is how God provided safety to his people in Goshen at the first Passover. In Exodus chapter 12 the people were told to put the blood of a lamb (Jesus) on their doorposts as a sign of their faith so they would not be harmed by the angel of death which would pass over. God does not subject the faithful to his wrath and he will pass over again. Before then, the faithful who are on earth will be taken to a safe place to be kept from harm. This is a picture of the rapture.

Apprehension about Biblical Numbers – wonder and fear Numerology?

Virtually everyone I know, including myself at one time, has significant apprehension about investigating the Bible's numbers. The occult's misuse of numbers for thousands of years has people fearing they might be dragged off by evil if they even dare to begin examining the Bible with numbers in mind. At the same time, I think many people suppose the numbers in biblical text have some symbolism, but since they have really never been clearly explained, they are largely dismissed  as unimportant to Bible study. Can you imagine how happy Satan must be that he has good people running from one of the most helpful tools for understanding scripture? He's done a great job over the years of making sure we would not believe the concepts of the Bible's numbers should they ever be uncovered.

I think most people that have looked at a few of my writings about biblical numbers are at first surprised at how believable some of the examples are. The many evidences I present are quite compelling and should make the average person wonder if it is truly possible - how could the middle chapter of the Bible be the shortest and only two verse chapter? (Ps 117); how could John 3, home of John 3:16, just happen to be the 1000th chapter of the Bible?; how could maybe the most intense verse of the Bible on forgiveness of sin just happen to be the 17777th Bible verse? Isaiah 6:7  "… your sin is forgiven…".  Before our taboos take over and we catch ourselves wondering if this could be God's work – everything in us says it couldn't be true. It cannot be argued - everything we know about the Bible's creation declares, from our human perspective, the structure of the Bible and its numbers cannot be perfect. That's what I once thought, but the preponderance of evidence eventually overwhelmed my disbelief. The impossible appears to have happened. It should be no surprise…have you seen this Bible verse…

Jerimiah 32:27 "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?" (the 777th chapter)

My learning process…More than ten years ago now I began to catch glimpses of number patterns in the Bible because that's what my mind does - I'm one of those people that dosen't learn and understand things the same way others do. I have a diagnosed learning disability which includes, among other things, a truly terrible memory.  Like others with learning disabilities, it does not say we are not as smart as others, but rather that we learn differently. I suppose my brain has had to adapt to learn in different ways and those ways seem to allow me to notice patterns in things that others don't typically see. Anyway, for whatever reason, Long ago I began to notice what appeared to be patterns between the Bible's numbers in the text, and the meanings in the text itself. At first I did not believe what I was seeing - I would dismiss example after example until about three years went by and I could not dismiss what I saw any longer. As a course of normal Bible study, they were popping off the page too often to be by chance. It's been more than ten years now, and ever so gradually I've put together pieces of how the numbers fit and how they relate to the text. That's what my website and other writings are about.

So what do I believe about the Bible and it's numbers?
Matt 5:18 "For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or stroke shall pass from the Law until all is accomplished.

I suppose many of us have wondered about the verse at Matthew 5:18 that declares the perfection of God's Word. A verse that says God's word is perfectly inspired and preserved by him. While most of us believers will agree and declare God's inspiration of his word, we then go on to teach it as if it's not inspired. We are continually trying to sort out what we don't understand through our own human thought, and then try to read things into what the original author must have meant. Our excuse - very often we dismiss this verse by saying the original manuscripts may have been perfect,  but we don't know if our Bible truly reflects the original writings. Others of us simply imagine the concept of inspiration to be a more general than specific revelation of God's thoughts.

Ask yourself…God said he would preserve his word – do we think that the creator of the universe cannot create and preserve one single book he left for us? I think most of us would never think that, but the question is…did he?

I believe God worked through the pens of men to create a perfect Bible and I cannot imagine men were aware of the level of perfection they were involved in recording. I believe, through men, God wrote every book of the Bible; caused the exact books he desired to be selected, ordered and brought together in exactly the manner and time he desired; and every book, chapter, and verse were numbered from the beginning and then God insured they were perfectly added to the printed word when the time was right. For myself – I know without any doubt this is true. How? The numbers reveal a perfect DNA like alignment with the text of scripture that cannot be denied once you observe it. The perfection of numbers mathematically confirms the preciseness of God's Word. Of thousands of examples I've documented, the two most easy to explain and comprehend are verses at Ruth 4:9 and Matthew 24:42.

Ruth 4:9 an amazing intersection of text and numbers…

Ruth 4:9 is a key verse where Boaz declares the people in front of him are "witnesses" that he has paid the price and purchased back Naomi and her possessions, including Ruth - A picture of Jesus redeeming his people with the price of his blood. I believe this very important verse has been supernaturally highlighted with God's numbers so that at the appropriate time, we could observe his perfection for ourselves. To explain this perfection of numbers - this is the 7200th verse of the Bible; the 72nd verse of  Ruth; in the 236th chapter (2x36=72); has a verse reference of 4:9 (4x9=36, x2=72) and most importantly, the theme of the text about "witnessing" is perfectly aligned with the #72 found throughout scripture to be associated with the same theme. How do we associate the number 72 and witnessing? There's too much evidence for this to explain here, but consider these related facts; the 2700th Bible verse (strongly related to #72) speaks of the ark of the testimony which is a witness to God. This verse at Exodus 39:35 simply says "the ark of the testimony and its poles and the mercy seat;" – a direct correspondence of text and number meaning at a precise and somewhat curious cross Bible verse number.  Another strongly 72 related verse is the 7700th verse of the Bible at 1Samuel 18:23. In gematria, the number 77 can be seen as two sevens (27),  or seven twice (72). In this verse Saul's servants testify to David "Behold, the king delights in you, and all his servants love you; now therefore, become the king's son-in-law.' " – another testimony to the sonship of David and alusion to Jesus, being the son of God. Is it beyond the probability of chance all these things line up accidentally.

Matthew 24:42 a second incredible intersection of text and numbers…
The 24,000th verse of the Bible appears supernaturally highlighted so that we might one day see God's perfection in his word and take in the impact of the importance of this specific message – The Lord will return – be truly on the alert for this day. There are an impossible six different levels of intersection with this verse's position in the Bible, the numbers related to this position, and the text that corresponds to the numbers. The six different numerical intersections are; 1) this is the 24,000th verse of the Bible; 2) is found in the 24th chapter; 3) in a chapter about the "DAY" of the Lord's return; 4) a day has 24 hours; 5) this verse is specifically about being on the alert for this DAY and says "Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming"; and 6) this is the 42nd verse of Matthew 24 and #42 is simply the digits for the #24 in reverse order. The laws of probability say the chances of these six different intersections occuring at one single verse location is billions to one. An impossibility in the scientific sense.

These two examples tell us - even though our mind cannot conceive this DNA like perfection of the Bible is even remotely possible (and no one would disagree), these and thousands of other examples of such number alignments declares it is so. We are faced with a difficult question – do we believe what we imagine to be true, or do we believe the numbers and the Matthew 5:18 declaration by God himself that his word is perfect. I believe any scientist that truly studies these facts cannot conclude anything other than perfection.

Why? Even if this perfection does exist, why does it matter to the average person?
There's too many different values to knowing the Bible's Redemption Pattern and Numeric Map to go into here, so I will just mention a couple of the most obvious ones. First, it confirms without any doubt the Bible's Old Testament and New Testament are two inseparable parts of one God authored book. If you are a Jew, this is a shocking statement - The same exact supernatural number patterns that are found in the Torah are also found in the New Testament. As a general believer, if you wonder if the Bible is accurate, you need not wonder any more. Secondly, the numbers in the Bible are as much a part of the text of scripture as the text itself. I believe the numbers are a type of Numeric Map to the text of the Bible. If you understand the numbers, then you can better understand the text because perfectly consistent themes are always associated with the same verifiable numbers. Another way of saying this is - The text associated with numbers help us understand number themes and the number theme associations, once you understand them, provide invaluable guides to interpreting the text.

Do I understand the numbers well?
One last comment…I hope no one thinks I claim to have a good understanding of God's Numbers, any more than I have a good understanding of God's Word. His word has proven over history to be a mystery of mysteries – we will never fully comprehend it. The numbers are the same – we can learn from them and use them, but I would never claim to have an "understanding" of them. I have simply observed the tip of the iceberg of a pattern that will forever reveal more secrets of God, as long as we continue to study it. I should add, although I cannot declare this with certainty, I strongly suspect God has allowed me to see these things so I can tell others. I don't think I'm any more perceptive than the millions of people who have already studied God's word for thousands of years, so I don't think this happens to be a discovery we just now stumbled over. I like to think that God has all along planned when and how these secrets would be revealed, and now is apparently that time.

I hope this all makes sense,

Symbolism for the Bible's #28 - Jesus our Great High Priest who intercedes for us

Jesus is our only way to eternal life. Through his death on the cross we can have access to eternal life by claiming Jesus blood as the only acceptable sacrifice for our sins. Number 28 points to this aspect of Jesus as our High Priest who intercedes with God on our behalf so we might have eternal life (John 3:16).

A major mention of the number 28 in the Bible's text is found in Exodus 26:2 that tells us of the curtain that separates men from the Holy of Holies - "The length of each curtain shall be twenty-eight cubits, and the width of each curtain four cubits; all the curtains shall have the same measurements". The verse clearly tells of the barrier between God and men. This is the very same type of curtain which was torn in two (from top to bottom) when Jesus died on the cross. It is interesting that adding the chapter and verse reference of 26:2 produces the #28. This is also the 2238th Bible verse with first and last digits of the number being #28 which is a common type of number pattern found in the scriptures.

An example of this picture of Jesus as our High Priest can be seen in verse 28 of Matthew 27 where a scarlet robe is put on Jesus - it says "They stripped Him and put a scarlet robe on Him". While those that did this were mocking him, they did not realize they were actually putting a royal robe on the Son of God - God himself. A robe appropriate for a Great High Priest. This verse is in the 956th chapter which is about the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the World. The digits for number 56 found in this cross Bible chapter number suggest an association with #28 (2x28=56). The cross Bible sequence number for this verse of 24158 also supports this verse being related to #28.

A second example of a #28 related verse is Ephesians 2:18 (#28) which says "through Him we both have our access in one Spirit to the Father". Like Matthew 27:28, it also tells us that Jesus our High Priest intercedes for us. Below are a compelling series of verses associating #28 with this theme.

The Bible's 828 Book Verses confirm the #28 theme...
Numbers 28 and 82 are both strongly related to each other and share the common theme. The number 828 is a combination of both numbers and has an especially strong theme related to both numbers. There are 16 books with an 828th cross book verse sequence number and each of the corresponding 828 numbered verses in these books somehow reveal this theme. They point to acts of the Lord interceding for us, or speak of how one intercedes for another. Some of these 16 examples below are more clear than others, but I've provided the complete set so those interested can examine for themselves if the preponderance of evidence in them shows a theme of intercession, or one standing up for another.

Gen 29:32 "...the LORD has seen my affliction; surely now my husband will love me." (because of the son, she shall be loved)
Exo 29:24 and you shall put all these in the hands of Aaron and ... (Aaron the High Priest)

Lev 27:3 '...your valuation shall be fifty shekels of silver... (See 27:28 about the valuation of those set apart for the Lord) v28 ...anything which a man sets apart to the LORD...

Deu 30:12 "...'Who will go up to heaven for us to get it for us...?'

Act 23:17 Paul ...said, "Lead this young man to the commander, for he has something to report..." (the young man intercedes for Paul).

Number 28 is related to #14 about Jesus the King as 14x2=28 and factors of numbers have direct relationships. This 28/14 relationship demonstrates how numbers can have similar and related meanings while themselves representing specific aspects of the overall theme. #14 and #28 are both about Jesus; #14 for Jesus the King; and #28 for Jesus the High Priest who intercedes for us.

1John 4:9, 3:16 and Ruth 4:9 contain the same message and chapter and verse numbers directly relate them-The Perfect Bible...

There is an amazing intersection of numbers in three very unique verses which all have a strongly related message - God loved the world so much that he sent his only son, a redeemer, to pay the price for their sin and redemption. All who believe in him will be saved. (Even though the word "love" is not in the Ruth 4:9 reference, Boaz redeemed Naomi and here land because of his love for Ruth, the gentile). The most obvious association relating John 3:16 with 1John 4:9 is the exact nature of the text in 1John 4:9 to that of John 3:16; and that 1John 4:9 is the 30,613rd verse of the Bible - thus having the reference of 3:16 in this cross Bible verse number. Another clue is that by multiplying chapter times verse, you also come up with the number 36 - 4x9=36. Not shown here is that the Bible's other 4:9 verses have a similar message to this same theme.
These verses are compelling evidence for the Bible's DNA like Numeric Map that appears to map all the text of the Bible with themes reflected in book, chapter, verse and many other number combinations. Along with other compelling evidences on this web site, it is not reasonable to conclude all these associations can be a product of coincidence.
The following chart compares the verse numbering and text of each of these verses. The explanations of how the number digits fit the text in various ways are not a contriving of numbers to fit this example, but are demonstrated through 1000s of similar number patterns found throughout the scrip tires.
comparing verse numbering/context
John 3:16 1John 4:9 Ruth 4:9
John 3:16 "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. 1Joh 4:9 By this the love of God was manifested in us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world so that we might live through Him. Ruth 4Then Boaz said to the elders and all the people, "You are witnesses today that I have bought from the hand of Naomi all that belonged to Elimelech and all that belonged to Chilion and Mahlon.
Text says God sent his only son into the world to save those who believed in him. Purchase price was his blood. Same basic message as John 3:16 Boaz, a Jesus type, pays the price to redeem Naomi and her land and Ruth, a gentile, becomes redeemed with Naomi.
3:6 verse reference relates it to number 36 which is a number related to "all things" or things related to circles, spheres, surrounded, etc. The Bible's 30,613 verse relating this verse directly to the John 3:16.
Also, chapter times verse is 36 and this is the 72nd verse of 1John. All these numbers relate this to the message of John 3:16 and of Ruth 4:9.
Is the 72nd verse of Ruth and the 7200th Bible verse. #72 is a direct factor of the number 36 (2x36). More evidence of this number relationship is documented in the cross Bible chapter number below.
1000th Bible chapter. Josephus says 1000 is a number of perfection. In the 1163rd chapter which again contains the digits 3-1-6 (3:16) relating this verse directly to John 3:16.
It also seems no coincidence this is in the 234th New Testament chapter and 2+34=36.
Is in the 236th chapter relating this verse to #36 and #72 (2x36).
Chapter times verse again is 36 (4:9=4x9).
26137th verse which contains the digits 3,1,6 as well as #37 which like #777 (3 sevens) is a number of salvation. Is significant that 26137 begins and ends with the digits #27/#72.
It does not seem coincidence that 3:16 can also be seen as #37 (3 & 6:1) also relating it to the number of salvation -777.
is the 92nd verse in John and the 2992nd verse of the NT. #29/#92/#99 are all numbers related to the coming of the Lord. There may be multiple reasons for this number relationship-it seems to indicate everyone will be judged on their belief of Jesus when he returns.
The basic message here is that the numbers associated with each of these verses tie them all to common numbers of 3:16.
