This blog makes an impossible claim about the Bible....but...

The writings on this blog make a totally impossible claim that I've observed a pattern in the organization in the Bible (NASB, NIV, KJV structured Bibles) that shows an absolute perfection in number themes in the text - and more incredibly in book, chapter and verse numbering. Of course, history says chapter and verse numbers were added just 6-700 years ago so it could not possibly be a product of supernatural origin, but no matter what we imagine to be possible, the numbers declare their own perfection. At this time virtually everyone dismisses the evidence presented in this blog and on my website as coincidental. My experience is that presenting more of the mountains of evidence I can present seem to create more doubt than confirmation. So, before you dismiss the premise and if you are truly are interested in new understandings of scripture, consider and even ruminate/ponder deeply if you think the following two simple evidences of this perfection should be cast off as coincidence. You can confirm them for yourself if you want to take the time:

EVIDENCE #1 -- Psalm 117 is the 595th and exact center of 1189 Bible chapters. What makes this chapter truly special is that it is the shortest chapter in the Bible as well as being the only two verse chapter of the Bible. To confirm the special nature of this chapter, both verses declare "Praise the LORD". The chapter that splits the Bible in two, the centerpoint chapter, points to the LORD. Did this placement happen coincidentally? If you can't quite go there, a bit more thought will begin to show you the only way this could happen is through supernatural means.

EVIDENCE #2 -- John 3:16 is commonly considered by Biblical scholars and laymen alike to be the most key verse of the Bible - "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." (NASB) Likewise, John chapter 3 that contains this verse is very often said to be the key chapter of the Bible. Is it coincidence that this is the 1000th of 1189 Bible chapters? Josephus said number 1000 is God's number of perfection. Does your heart tell you this happened purely by accident? If not accident, the only explanation I can think of is that God simply made this happen - we can't really understand how this is possible, but the Bible says "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?"  (777th chapter) Jeremiah 32:27

These two evidences are not proof, but just very strong clues that should cause you to wonder if the claim of the Bible's numerical perfection is possible. Numbers of all kinds are precise, and like sophisticated encryption algorithms, can verify their own accuracy. Read through some of the messages of this blog and I think you will begin to confirm for yourself that God's Word is truly his supernatural and perfect word.

  1. Thanks for posting this, i remembered having it in my broken pc, and wanted to show it to a friend. :) I believe all of Gods Word, and this shows of His perfection. A mathmatician who was athiest wrote a book, studying the Bible through numbers to prove it wasn't perfect, since each letter in the old testament ='s a number, like 6 = w, as in www=666, but it made him a believer. thanks again.

  2. oh yeah, i fogot to say, that he wrote a book talking about how you can't change one word without ruining the perfection of the numbers/words. i can't find it though, i'm sorry. if i find a link i'll send it to you.

  3. I was using numeralogy to find the meaning of my name and I found this webpage.. I think god led me here.. thankyou so much.. by the way my number is 37 and my full name equates to 554 which also means that it is an angel no. And that I am guided by angels.
