Too many coincidences to be coincidence?

I know when I write blog posts about the God numbering book, chapter and verse in the bible it appears I'm a well intentioned but uninformed student of scripture - everyone knows the original text did not have numbers. But, God says he can do anything and the evidence strongly suggests (I believe proves) only God could have numbered the Bible because it is so perfect. Evidence abounds showing the perfection - below are examples where numbers found associated with Biblical text, match book, chapter and verse too often to be coincidence. These are not proofs, but evidence that suggests God's perfection in Biblical structure.
  1. 74 men in the 74th chapter - In the 74th chapter of the Bible, God calls 74 men to come up the mountain. Exodus 24:1 ...He said to Moses, "Come up to the LORD, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu and seventy of the elders of Israel, and you shall worship at a distance.
  2. Genesis 7:2 (7&2) and 7s and 2s went into the ark - Gen 7:2 "You shall take with you of every clean animal by sevens, a male and his female; and of the animals that are not clean two, a male and his female; (also the 162nd Bible verse - 1+6 and 2 = 72?)
  3. Genesis 7:4 (7&4) after 7 days it rained 40 days - Gen 7:4 "For after seven more days, I will send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights; and I will blot out from the face of the land every living thing that I have made."
  4. In 42nd verse of 2Kings, 2 bears, tore up 42 - 2Kin 2:24 When he looked behind him and saw them, he cursed them in the name of the LORD. Then two female bears came out of the woods and tore up forty-two lads of their number.
  5. 220 in number mentioned in the 12,222nd verse - Ezr 8:20 and 220 of the temple servants, whom David and the princes had given for the service of the Levites, all of them designated by name.
  6. 6 things the Lord hates, 7 an abomination - In this well known verse, notice how chapter and verse match the text Proverbs 6:16 (6&6+1=7=67) There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
  7. 6 wings and 2 covered each part in verse 6:2 - Isaiah 6:2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew
  8. Israel's 70 year captivity told of in the 770th chapter - Jeremiah 25:12 'Then it will be when seventy years are completed I will punish the king of Babylon and that nation,' declares the LORD, 'for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans; and I will make it an everlasting desolation.
  9. The 430 year siege declared in verse 4:3 of the 806th chapter (2x43=86) - Ezekiel 4:3 "Then get yourself an iron plate and set it up as an iron wall between you and the city, and set your face toward it so that it is under siege, and besiege it". Verse 4:5 says 390 days and verse 46 adds 40 days = 430.
  10. Revelation 12:6 speaks of the 1260 days (1/2 of tribulation period, 42 months) - Rev 12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she *had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
  11. The 276th verse says after 7 weeks and 62 weeks the prince will return. This 22,014th cross Bible verse number supports the numbers as 22 is a number for Jesus the suffering servant and 14 is for Jesus the king - Dan 9:25 "So you are to know and discern that from the issuing of a decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until Messiah the Prince there will be seven weeks and sixty-two weeks;
  12. Verse 26 says after 62 weeks the Messiah will be cut off - Dan 9:26 "Then after the sixty-two weeks the Messiah will be cut off and have nothing.
  13. In the 25,512nd verse 5,1,3,2,2,3 in text closely match both chapter and verse and Bible verse number- Luke 12:52 for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two and two against three.
  14. 200 and 3 in text in a 23:23 verse - Act 23:23 ... "Get two hundred soldiers ready by the third hour of the night
  15. Verse 5:9 (59=60-1) associated with age less than 60 - 1Tim 5:9 A widow is to be put on the list only if she is not less than sixty years old, having been the wife of one man
  16. The 144,000 witnesses are described in Revelation 14:4 - v3 they sang a new one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand v 14:4 (144) Revelation 14:4 These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb.
  17. The beast with 10 horns and 7 heads described in Revelation chapter 17 (10+7) - Revelation 17:7 And the angel said to me, "Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the beast that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns.
  18. The 24,000th verse associated with 24, 42 and the "DAY" of the Lord (24 hours) - Matthew 24:42for you do not know which "day" "Therefore be on the alert, your Lord is coming.
If you are wondering if these are conveniently selected examples - consider how key and well known these verses of the Bible are? They are not just random verses with numbers that happen to match text, but instead seem to be verses God specially HIGHLIGHTED with numbers because they are important for us to know and study.
