"Caesarea & 6442"


Readers -  

Here's an example of a clear Bible number association. Sometimes you have to work hard to find out if a number in the Bible is associated with a particular person, place or thing - but not in this case.

You can add this to your reference folder of Bible Numbers.

I was reviewing when the Holy Spirit was actually given to the Gentiles. This happened in Acts 10 when Peter, after having a cryptic vision on the roof of a house, gets told by the Holy Spirit to go without question with some non-jewish men who have come calling for him.

He does so and finds himself at Cornelius' house. Read all of Acts 10 to find out what happened.

Acts 10:1
"There was a certain man in Caesarea called Cornelius, a centurion of the band called the Italian band, ..."

The total gematria value of that verse is 6442.

There are only three Bible verses with that value, and here is the third one:

Acts 25:1
"Now when Festus was coming into the province, after three days he ascended from Caesarea to Jerusalem."

"Caesarea" is mentioned in both verses. 

Given that there are over 31,000 verses in the Bible, it is highly unlikely, imho, that this is accident. 

6442 is about Caesarea.

*****

On an interesting side note, the first Bible verse with the 6442 value is:

Joshua 2:14
"And the men answered her, Our life for yours, if ye utter not this our business. And it shall be, when the LORD hath given us the land, that we will deal kindly and truly with thee."

What is this verse about. Read it in context. This is out of the agreement struck between Rahab the harlot, and the spies of Israel, whom she has hidden on her roof in stalks of Flax; that when Israel came into the Land to Jericho, that they would spare her, and all in her house from destruction. The pledge was the crimson cord tied to her window, signifying her house as safe, and all in her house were spared of destruction. The Passover principle.

Rahab, another gentile, is spared and is eventually spliced into the Messianic lineage of the Lord Jesus through her descendant King David, as she was a believer in the God of Israel.

Jesus is Lord.
