Series DNA Bible - Evidence #3 - The 24,000 verse and the Day of the Lord

Evidence # 3: An amazing alignment of 24s on the 24,000th verse

The next compelling evidence I have for you is from another well-known portion of the Bible—Matthew 24, which is the record of Jesus’ disciples asking Him about the end of the age: “Tell us, when will these things happen, and what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” Jesus gave them a long answer that is found in the entire chapter - but in verse 42 He makes this key statement: “Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which DAY your Lord is coming.” Jesus says, “…you do not know which day your Lord is coming.”  And this key verse about when the Lord will return is the 24,000th Bible verse.

Coincidences of #24 and the 24,000th verse - A day is made up of twenty-four hours and 24 is the key to this very special Bible verse. In Matthew 24:42 we have Jesus telling His twelve disciples they cannot know on which DAY the end of the age will begin; this is the 24th chapter about the DAY of the Lord; it is the 42nd and key verse of the chapter; and 42 is in Hebrew Gematria equal to 24; Sound like a coincidence? If you really mentally chew on the intersections of #24 on this 24,000th verse, whatever you might imagine the cause to be, it surely is not likely coincidence.

I asked a mathematician friend to calculate the probability of all these 24s lining up like this. His answer: 53 trillion to one, which also can be shown as .00000000000053 percent. By comparison, the probability of an intense hurricane making landfall in Cumberland County Maine is .1 percent.
            In other words, Maine is trillions of times more likely to be hit by a major hurricane than the likelihood of all these numbers aligning by accident. By the way, during the entire twentieth century Maine was hit by seven relatively minor hurricanes; not one of them was more than a Category-one (minor) hurricane by the time it reached that northern New England state.

  1. Wow, cool post. I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real hard work to make a great article… but I put things off too much and never seem to get started. Thanks though.
