The Bible's 13:3 verses have a theme of "Spiritual Power" running through them.

The Bible's 13:3 verses have a theme of "Spiritual Power" running through them.

Why study like referenced verse themes? They are amazing evidence for a supernatural author of the Bible - God, and they aid interpretation by guiding our understanding of common themes in them.

There are 32 verses of the Bible that have a chapter and verse reference of 13:3, and like all verses with the same reference number, there is some aspect of a common theme running through all of them. As students of God's word it is a fascinating puzzle to us to study and ponder them to reveal the themes and use them to help us better understand the messages they contain.

To help show how to identify common themes in like referenced verses, notice how we can dissect the list of verses to find common aspects to them. In the below 13:3 verses, notice how the following types of things are mentioned in them. Together, they help us identify a similar theme related to spiritual power or presence:

  • evil or sin
  • aspects of spiritual power versus fleshly power
  • mentions of false prophets
  • things spiritually spoken by God/LORD or evil
  • spiritual presence that dissipates away - things that smoke, or cloud or smoked, kindled
  • mysteries or things that are hidden
  • words of anger from the Lord
  • aspects of those testing or judging the LORD

The 13:3 like referenced verses...

Revelation 13:3 speaks of the false prophet with a healed fatal head wound. Notice how other 13:3 verses speak of spiritual power, good or bad. IE false prophets...
Rev 13:3 I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;

The theme running through these verses unique to the Bible's 13:3 verses. If you examine other sets of like referenced verses, you will not find the preponderance of evidence pointing specifically to the messages they contain

God is amazing and his word has patterns of perfection everywhere you look.


  1. Anyone needing to support their argument for evolution against creationism might like some of the stuff that is being written on themanicmessiah website. It offers compelling argument against Jesus as the son of God. As a non believer it's refreshing to hear la proper presentation rather than ramblings from a soap box

  2. Evidence on this website proves in a very unique and comprehensible way the KJV and similarly structured Bible's are perfect in book/chapter/verse numbering...only a supernatural God/Jesus could have created this book.

    If you are serious about wanting to know the truth about your creator, verify for yourself how Psalm 117 is the exact center chapter of the Bible and is the shortest and only two verse chapter declaring "Praise the LORD" twice. Then verify Psalm 103:1-2 are the exact center verses saying "Bless the LORD" twice. Hopefully these strange "coincidences" in the Bible might get you curious enough to look at the thousands of other evidences on this blog that can all be numerically verified on your own. God wants people seeking him to find him and will fully satisfy your sincere seeling. Otherwise, he is sad, but still OK, if you decide to ignore the clues he's given you. You have been given an opportunity to know the truth. I wish you success in your searching.
