The Lord will one day return at midnight? - 12 verses - Jerusalem?

I've just been writing some tweets about the symbolism for the #31 being about last things and the return of the Lord. (!/amazingword) For sure, I'm no prophet -- I just observe patterns I see in the scriptures. But I've noticed for a long time that it appears, the day The Lord does return, it will likely be at midnight -- I assume this would be the time in Jerusalem.

Rather than try to explain my reasoning, I've just copied below the only 12 Bible verses that contain the word midnight. (Having 12 of these is an interesting topic in itself)  I find this interesting -- something to think about as we celebrate the 2012 New Year. See what you think when you read the messages in these verses...

Exo 11:4 Moses said, "Thus says the LORD, 'About midnight I am going out into the midst of Egypt,

Exo 12:29 Now it came about at midnight that the LORD struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt....

Judg 16:3 Now Samson lay until midnight, and at midnight he arose and took hold of the doors of the city gate and the two posts and pulled them up along with the bars...

Job 34:20 "In a moment they die, and at midnight People are shaken and pass away, And the mighty are taken away without a hand.

Psa 119:62 At midnight I shall rise to give thanks to You Because of Your righteous ordinances.

Matt 25:6 "But at midnight there was a shout, 'Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.'

Mrk 13:35 "Therefore, be on the alert--for you do not know when the master of the house is coming, whether in the evening, at midnight, or when the rooster crows, or in the morning--

Luke 11:5 Then He said to them, "Suppose one of you has a friend, and goes to him at midnight and says to him, 'Friend, lend me three loaves;

Act 16:25 But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them;

Act 20:7 On the first day of the week (Sabbath/Saturday?), when we were gathered together to break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to leave the next day, and he prolonged his message until midnight.

Act 27:27 But when the fourteenth night came, as we were being driven about in the Adriatic Sea, about midnight the sailors began to surmise that they were approaching some land.

Christmas is on December "25th" By Design - Symbolism of Bible's #25

Following are some tweets I posted recently. They provide some fairly strong evidence for the symbolism for the Bible's (God's) #25. I first observed this association with number twenty-five and Jesus appearances on earth when I noticed the 25,000th verse was about Jesus appearing at the temple and Simeon being called there at the same time. Simeon had been promised by God that he would not die until he saw the messiah. So on the Bible's 25,000th verse, this occurred. Luke 2:26 is the Bible's 25,000th verse.
Luke 2:25 And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking for the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him.
(25,000th Bible verse) Luke 2:26 And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord's Christ.
2:27 And he came in the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law,
2:28 then he took Him into his arms, and blessed God, and said,
2:29 "Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, According to Your word;
2:30 For my eyes have seen Your salvation,

This observation made me wonder if the meaning of why we celebrate Christmas on December 25th has been lost. Maybe the original celebration was about Jesus coming to earth, not actually about his birthday. Here's the tweets that help support this hypothysis...

  • Seems Christmas is Dec 25th for a reason? #25 symbolic of appearance of Jesus on earth 25,000th ver/LK 25:1=25025th ver

The Bible’s 595th and exact center chapter…a miracle of God…

Jer 32:27 "Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh; is anything too difficult for Me?"

 The KJV Bible has 1189 chapters but only one chapter with just two verses that proclaim Praise the Lord. Christians believe the Bible is about Jesus, the only Son of God...  This center chapter is specially highlighted by God in this premiere center location -- to help us recognize the perfect miracle of the structure of God's word and that the Bible is truly about the LORD Jesus!

The 117th Psalm...

The 595th Bible chapter is the one-of-a-kind shortest chapter and is found as the Bible’s exact center chapter – find the red dot in the 1189 Bible chapters shown.
Most people dismiss this as a “coincidence” – what do you think? Did this very special chapter just happen to find its way to the exact center position of all these chapters?


Isaiah 55:8 "For My thoughts are not your thoughts, Nor are your ways My ways," declares the LORD.
