Nine Key chapters and verses you should highlight in your Bible -- God's Bible Highlighting

Nine Chapters of the Bible that Deserve to be Highlighted in your personal Bible 

Did you know the 911th Bible chapter appears to warn us what will happen to nations turning from God? Or that the 666th chapter reflects the theme of sin and tells us no person is without sin? The numbering of Bible chapters seems to be a message from God that his word is perfectly put together and his numbering confirms strong messages to us from scripture. Following are nine key chapters in scripture where God's numbering of chapter and verse are amazing signs of the miracle of Biblical perfection.

(see the list of nine verses lower in this text)

The Exact Middle Bible chapter, the middle Bible verse, the 500th and 1000th chapter and other numerical curiosities very obviously seem to line up in textual meaning to the numbers they are assigned. For example, John 3, a chapter that many be the most key chapter of the Bible also happens to be the exact 1000th chapter of a total of 1189 chapters, and Josephus said #1000 was God's number of perfection. Weather you consider this a cool coincidence or the product of divine assignment by God, either reason is worth noting in your Bible. That's what this writing is about.

Would God Highlight the Bible for Us?

There are many ways that all the books we read are somehow highlighted to point out key points the author wants to make. For example, formatting with bold, italic or underlined text; call outs and various heading styles; boxes surrounding key text ; and so on. We sometimes even highlight documents ourselves with various color highlighting pens. In a related way, I suspect God wanted to leave some highlights around selected text and wanted this highlighting to be revealed in the last days. But how could this be done? The Bible could not have such formatting when it was written, and if it did, it would have been lost over time. The Bible is a text document that would be translated thousands of times and into many languages and such graphical highlighting would not be workable. But I believe I can show where the Christian Bible is highlighted in a way nobody expected.

My book, website, blog and tweets all point out evidences that God supernaturally numbered the Bible. Every book, chapter and verse is in the correct order and all these are numbered sequentially even though you only see chapter and verse numbers printed. You can examine these other website resources for more about God's Bible numbering. This article is meant to show some of God's highlighting in the Bible you use today. Even if you don't use a King James type structured Bible, some of these evidences reveal chapter and verse numbers that amazingly point to special contents in the text.

First, to get an idea of what numbering I'm speaking of, consider some of the following ways scripture is numbered (assuming the KJV, NIV, ESV, NASB type Bible structure.)

Numbers we can easily see:

  • Every chapter in every book is numbered and the numbers are important
  • Every verse in every chapter is numbered and the numbers are important
  • The total count of verses in every chapter can be seen by looking at the last chapter verses
  • The total count of chapters in every book has symbolic meaning for that book
  • All numbers in the text have corresponding significance
  • Lists in the Bible can be sequentially numbered and the number of an item in lists has correspondence to that number's symbolism

Examples of supernatural numbering not printed in our Bibles

  • 66 books all have a number from one 1-66 associated with them.
  • 39 Old Testament and 27 New Testament books have corresponding numbers associated with them  (1-39 and 1-27). A second numbering counts only full books of the Bible. IE 1st and 2nd Kings are counted as a single book. (57 book count)
  • 1189 chapters have a 1-1189 chapter number associated with them (Cross Bible Chapter count)
  • All 31,102 verses in the Bible are invisibly numbered from 1-31102 (Cross Bible Verse Count)
  • All verses in each book have a sequential number associated with them (Cross Book Verse Count)
Now that we are aware of these possible numberings, let's see how they have been put to use to highlight and help us interpret Biblical text.

The Bible's Numbering reflects God's Highlighting of special locations of scripture

Assume our perfect God has created our Bible with DNA like numbering/text perfection - then everything in scripture should line up in multiple ways -- all consistent with related symbolic meanings. It does! God has used his Holy Spirit inspired numbering to highlight text we should take special note of. Once you realize these highlighted locations you might want to somehow highlight them in your own Bible.

Following are special locations in the text I believe God highlighted with his own defined numbering. I hope they are curious enough to compel you to investigate them on your own. Individually, any of these number associations might be a product of incredible coincidence,  but when considered together as a group, assuming these all are a product of happenstance is virtually impossible. It is not just these Bible locations that I believe are significant, but the examples below are presented as a few strong evidences I like to share because they demonstrate the Bible is accurate and preserved by God. Also, that the highlighting by numbering points out special knowledge we can take away as a result of understanding God's numbers. The Bible's numbers help us interpret scripture by being able to compare passages and their meanings with symbols found related to similar texts.

  • John 3, the 1000th chapter -- of only 1189 chapters of the Bible, this is the only one thousandth numbered verse and is a tremendous highlight to what many call the most important chapter of the Bible. John 3:16 ...for God so loved the World.
  • Psalm 117, the 595th and exact middle Bible chapter is highlighted by the fact that it is the shortest and only two verse chapter of the Bible. Both these verses declare "Praise the LORD" and divide the Bible in two parts seemingly indicating that the Bible is about the LORD (Jesus Christ).
    • Psa 117:1 Praise the LORD, all nations; Laud Him, all peoples!
    • Psa 117:2 For His lovingkindness is great toward us, And the truth of the LORD is everlasting. Praise the LORD!
  • Psalm 103:1-2 are the two verses at the exact center of all Bible verse numbering. These are the 15551st and 15552nd Bible verses. In a very same manner as the middle chapter at Psalm 117, these two verses also point to the LORD at the verse numbered center of the Bible. They both declare "Bless the LORD, O my soul...". Interesting also to note that the exact center verses of the Bible fall on a chapter boundary as the 1st and 2nd chapter verses.
    • Psa 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And all that is within me, {bless} His holy name.
    • Psa 103:2 Bless the LORD, O my soul, And forget none of His benefits;
  • The 500th Bible chapter is Psalm 22 about Jesus on the Cross -- An incredible chapter that points to Jesus on the cross in his act of sacrifice to pardon every believer from sin. 50 and 500 may be thought of as numbers of pardoning of sin associated with years of Jubilee the Bible explains. Hard to imagine it is coincidence this 500th chapter just happens to belong to this very special picture of Jesus.
    • Psa 22:1 My God, my God, why have You forsaken me? Far from my deliverance are the words of my groaning.
    • Psa 22:2 O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer; And by night, but I have no rest.
  • The 24,000th verse highlights the DAY of the Lord -- at intersections of 5 references to number 24s about the Day of the Lord -- Matthew 24:42 about the Day of the Lord -- Mathematically shows is statistically impossible chance occurrence. The 24th chapter about the DAY of the Lord; the 42nd verse (reverse of 24) is the key verse to watch out for we don't know when this DAY will occur. These four references to things related to 24 are all found in the 24,000th verse of the Bible. God has highlighted this very special verse for us. (Imagine this verse with a yellow highlight made by God to point out this critical event we are all to be looking forward to)
    • Matt 24:40 "Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one will be left.
    • Matt 24:41 "Two women {will be} grinding at the mill; one will be taken and one will be left.
    • Matt 24:42 "Therefore be on the alert, for you do not know which day your Lord is coming.
  •  Jeremiah 32 is the 777th chapter of the Bible and #777 relates to God consecrating or separating us from sin. That is, a number relating to Bible verses about God saving us from sin. There's much evidence point to this symbolism. First, this 777th chapter tells of the deed of purchase for Israel. The LORD has purchased our freedom - Jer 32:14 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, "Take these deeds, this sealed deed of purchase and this open deed, and put them in an earthenware jar, that they may last a long time.". Also, the only three verses of the Bible with a cross Bible verse number containing four sevens all speak of consecration/sanctification.
    • 7777th verse - 1Sam 21:4 The priest answered David and said, "There is no ordinary bread on hand, but there is consecrated bread
    • 17777th verse - Isa 6:7 He touched my mouth {with it} and said, "Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is forgiven."
    • 27777th verse - Act 24:7 "But Lysias the commander came along, and with much violence took him out of our hands (thus they were assuming to be cleansing the temple by removing Paul).
  • Revelation 14:4 points to the 144,000 who go before Jesus -- The verse at Revelation 14:3 tells of the 144,000 who will be purchased from the earth at the Lord's return but it is the next verse that's more important and describes who these 144,000 are. Is it coincidence the verse is Revelation 14:4 (144) whose verse number matches those who it describes? 
    • Rev 14:3 & 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.
  • 911th Bible chapter (Haggai 2) points to September 11th type events in the Bible. 911 appears to be a God inspired Bible number and is always found related to consequences declared for nations who have as a government/people turned from God.
    • Daniel 9:11 Israel has transgressed God's law and calamity is declared for them. -- Dan 9:11 "Indeed all Israel has transgressed Your law and turned aside, not obeying Your voice; so the curse has been poured out on us, along with the oath which is written in the law of Moses the servant of God, for we have sinned against Him....v12 "Thus He has confirmed His words which He had spoken against us...to bring on us great calamity; for under the whole heaven there has not been done anything like what was done to Jerusalem.
    • Haggai chapter 2 (911th chapter) is about the wrath of the Lord on Israel because they had turned away from God and did not come back --Hag 2:6 "For thus says the LORD of hosts, 'Once more in a little while, I am going to shake the heavens and the earth, the sea also and the dry land. Hag 2:7 'I will shake all the nations;...
    • Genesis 11:9 The Tower of Babel -- Gen 11:9 Therefore its name was called Babel, because there the LORD confused the language of the whole earth; and from there the LORD scattered them abroad over the face of the whole earth. (in Bible gematria 11:9 and 9:11 are closely related numbers)
    • 1Kin 19:11 911 -- a Biblical 911 like event?  ...the LORD was passing by! And a great and strong wind was rending the mountains... (the Return of the Lord)
    • Rev 11:9 is also the 11911th verse -- a future 911?  ...nations will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days... (11:9 is same as 9:11)
    • Gen 31:37 is the 911th Bible verse - The nation hides it idols... "Though you have felt through all my goods, what have you found of all your household goods (idols)? Set it here before my kinsmen and your kinsmen, that they may decide between us two.
  • #1260 points to return of Jesus in 1,260 (3.5 years, 42 weeks). The following and many other 12:6 Bible verses point to the return of God's son - Especially Revelation 12:6 and Daniel 12:6.
    • Revelation 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.
    • Daniel 12:6 how long until end of the age? v7 says "times, time, 1/2 time" (3.5 yrs/"1260" days)
    • Zech 12:6 "In that day I will make clans of Judah like a firepot
    • Matthew 12:6 "But I say to you that something greater than the temple is here 
    • Acts 12:6 that night Peter, sleeping between two soldiers.. v7 Angel of LORD appeared 
    • Mark "12:6" He had one more..he sent a beloved son..saying 'They will respect my son' 
If you sincerely ponder these Bible numberings I think you will find it very difficult to dismiss all of them as a product of chance. If not produced by coincidence, how did they come to be? Since the Bible was brought together from many sources, it is not possible men simply made all these numbers line up.

Impossible as it sounds, this evidence all points to a supernaturally created Word of God.
