The Bible's (KJV, NIV, NASB..) numbers help unravel prophecy about "the Day of the LORD"...

I think I spend too much effort trying to reveal God's perfectly numbered Bible and don't spend near enough effort explaining how the Bible's numbers are a type of key to understanding the scriptures. One of the many patterns I write about in the Bible's numbers are the 31 sections of 1000 verses. As incomprehensible as it seems, there is great evidence that every 1000th verse in scripture are what I call transition verses. There are 31,102 verses in the King James so there are 31 sections that break on 1000 verse boundaries. These transition verses reveal great changes in what I refer to as themes or subject matter in the text. I'm sure Bible scholars will have the correct terms for these transitions once they understand them so I'll just provide a couple of examples of them below (more are shown in my book). You can use my online numbered Bible to examine and validate the numbering for yourself.

These are just some of the most obvious transition verses. Even if you don't agree with the premise I make, the examples hopefully will demonstrate what I'm trying to explain...

  • 2000th - Exo 17:16 "the LORD will have war against Amalek generation to generation...exact verse of Israel winning the battle against Amalek. A new chapter in Israel's history begins.
  • 4000th - Num 10:11 in the 2nd year, 2nd month, 20th he month, the cloud lifted...Israel's wilderness wandering of 40 years begins on this exact 4,000th verse. #4, 40, 400 relate to times of purification and testing. I could not comprehend this 4000th verse to be coincidence.
  • 5000th - Deu 3:24 'O Lord GOD, You have begun to show Your servant Your greatness...Israel about to enter promised land but Moses not allowed due to his disobedience. The point in scripture at the end of Moses life...
  • 6000th - Josh 7:23 ...they poured them out before the LORD #6 is related to sin and redemption and in this 6000th verse Israel's sin of keeping items under the ban is exposed.
  • 9000th - 1Kings 8:14 the king faced about and blessed all the assembly of Israel...In this 9000th verse location, the Lord God had just entered the temple built by Solomon and "The King turned towards the people". I suspect this is a picture of Jesus future return where he enters the temple and then appears before the people.
  • 10,000th - 2Kin 17:16 They forsook all the commandments of the LORD & served Baal. #10 is a number of last things and in this 10,000th verse God is done tolerating Israel's sin and declares he is sending Israel away.
  • 22,000th - Dan 9:11 "Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside..Another point where God is done with Israel. I believe it is no coincidence this is a 911 related verse. #911 is a God number related to consequences to nations that fall away from him.
  • 24,000th - Matt 24:42 be on the alert, you do not know which day your Lord comes... A catching up followed by "The Day of the LORD" (the point of this Blog post...below)
  • 31,000th - Rev 18:6 "Pay her back as she has paid..give her back double...A second time when Jesus saves his people just before he is about to bring Justice on the earth
If you look at all the Bible's 31 transition points you will find key verses at every location.

Finally, the point of this Blog post -- When you understand how the Bible's numbers relate symbolically to the text, then the numbers can be an incredible guide to interpretation. The relationship of the 24,000th transition verse immediately following a "catching up" seems an impossible coincidence. I think some Bible prophecy is clarified here at the 24,000th Bible verse...

The 24,000th verse relates to "The Day of the Lord" and immediately follows what appears to be a "catching up" of God's faithful. I suspect this sequence of events that takes place in the 23,998th through 24,000th verse is telling us that a catching up happens immediately prior to the "Day of the Lord". I'm not going to guess what "immediately" means and will let others more skilled in Bible prophecy than I debate the possibilities.

Below is an image from a page of my online numbered Bible. The verses at this 24,000th transition verse are shown with the first number being the verse's cross Bible verse number. Look at the 23,998th and 23,999th verses to see how Jesus seems to be telling us what happens before this incredible day.  (999 being a number of last things before the end of something). FYI...the numbers following the cross Bible verse numbers below are the cross book verse number and the cross New Testament verse numbers - which also have significance in the DNA like Bible numbering.

Matthew 24 in the DNA like Numbered KJV Bible (link)

Don't dismiss this compelling evidence of the Bible's perfection too quickly...
I encourage you to ponder the examples I give here as I believe the Bible's 31 transition verses may be the most compelling evidence of the perfectly numbered Bible I can demonstrate. Why...because I could not contrive such coincidences by making up these number/text relationships.

Thanks so much for comments many have left here...apologies for not responding

Sorry for not analyzing and responding to some posts recently left for me on this blog. I very much appreciate you who also see the possibility of the supernatural nature of Biblical numbers. As others have mentioned here, it is easier to observe a general and definite pattern of numbers to text, but much more difficult to decide what the patterns mean. It is to the glory of God when we observe this miracle of His Word. As so many things God speaks to us individually, I think they are often a reward for our diligence in the study of the Bible and suspect they are intentionally difficult for us to explain these secrets to others. The Bible is spiritually discerned and I suspect God would have us declare the perfection and wonder of his word, but not give us the ability to convince others of what the spirit reveals. Please understand that I (as I suspect others also) don't feel singled out by God to have the unique privilege of observing the patterns. They seem very simple to observe and I believe God will somehow reward anyone who digs intently into his Word. I'm convinced the numbers and patterns are just a couple of untold miracles to be discovered in the Bible.

I do think that those of us who catch a glimpse of some of these miracles can provide clues that hopefully will motivate others to seek out the mysteries of the Bible for themselves.

Thanks so much for the encouragement you give me by knowing that I'm not alone and am part of an apparently small number of people that God has rewarded with the observation of the Bible's supernatural numbering.

In your Bible study, watch for #14 and how it relates to Jesus, King and Savior

In previous posts I've explained that in the supernaturally numbered Bible,#14 is related to Jesus, King and Savior of the World. It can also be a reference to kings in general or something about a king. Watch for this theme in any chapter or verse associated with the number fourteen and you will be amazed.

Following are a long list of example verses that give some evidence of how often you find #14 related to the symbolism of Jesus the King. Also watch for number fourteen in the Bible's text as it is also somehow related to this theme...

The Bible's 4:14 verses speak of Jesus as "Savior of the World"...

In several other posts I have given evidences for the supernatural numbering of God's word, but I never cease to be amazed when I come across stunning examples and love to share them with others to help reveal how the number/text relationships work and how they can help you interpret scripture.

Because the Bible's numbers have symbolism that relates to the text they are with, when you look at like referenced verses you will find similar themes running through their text. These examples show how #14 is very often found with text relating to Jesus the redeemer. To demonstrate this, here are a few of the Bible's 14:14 verses that show fourteen is associated with Jesus the King that will save us...
1Kin 14:14 "Moreover, the LORD will raise up for Himself a king over Israel
Rev 14:14 ..I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head…
John 14:14 "If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it.
Exo 14:14 "The LORD will fight for you while you keep silent."
Isa 14:14 'I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.' (Satan, declaring he will be like Jesus, Savior of the World)
Knowing that #14 is likely related to Jesus the King, we can expect to see a similar theme in other #14 related verses. Since #41 is related to #14 (gematria), we might expect to see a similar theme running through the Bible's 4:14 verses. They do...notice how these best examples of the 45 Bible verses that have a 4:14 reference have some aspect of the text acknowledging Jesus as our King and Redeemer.

1Joh 4:14 We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.
Heb 4:14since we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God,…
2Cor 4:14 knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and will present us with you.

1The 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep in Jesus.
1Pet 4:14 If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you.
John 4:14the water that I will give him will become in him a well of water springing up to eternal life."

Luke 4:14 And Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about Him spread through all the surrounding district.
Josh 4:14 On that day the LORD exalted Joshua in the sight of all Israel; so that they revered him
Zech 4:14 …"These are the two anointed ones who are standing by the Lord of the whole earth."
Gal 4:14but you received me as an angel of God, as Christ Jesus Himself.
Est 4:14 "…if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance will arise for the Jews from another place

Jer 4:14 Wash your heart from evil, O Jerusalem, That you may be saved….
Act 4:14 And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they had nothing to say in reply.
Eph 4:14we are no longer to be children, tossed here and there by waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine…
Like referenced Bible verses are not just an interesting aspect of God's supernatural numbering of the Bible. Once you understand the number/text relationship, the common theme across like referenced verses can help us interpret their meaning. Learn the Bible's number symbolism so you can use the God-given numeric guide to better understand the scriptures.
