"Tng & the Numbers 154 & 859"

Readers -

In Tng's interesting post here:

he mentions Gabriel's greek gematria of 154.

Going here

shows all words that have an in-text value of 154.

I was again shocked to find myself at this verse (!) :

Genesis 30:32
"I will pass through all thy flock to day, removing from thence all the speckled and spotted cattle, and all the brown cattle among the sheep, and the spotted and speckled among the goats: and of such shall be my hire."

Strong's 5348h Speckled, has a value of 154.

I've mentioned before that I have lost count on how many times I ended up at this verse or a secondary verse in this chapter that mentions Jacob removing the speckled, spotted and brown animals.

This may be a rapture type of the gentiles being taken out, not unlike the vision Peter has of the four cornered sheet being lowered down from Heaven then taken back up to Heaven, filled with various "unclean" animals. see Acts 10:11-12.

Also notice that the third listed word to have a value of 154 is in the verse that first mentions DAMASCUS.

Genesis 14:15
"And he divided himself against them, he and his servants, by night, and smote them, and pursued them unto Hobah, which is on the left hand of Damascus."

(total verse gematria of that verse = 2391, Strong's greek number for Jared.)

In addition, it might interest the reader to know that the 859 number which Tng writes about is ALSO found in this Bible story!

Verse # 859 = Genesis 30:28
Laban asks Jacob what his wages are to be, and Jacob responds with the above verse, Genesis 30:32.

In addition, it might interest the reader to know that the 859 number is the total verse gematria of Leviticus 11:15:

"Every raven after his kind; ..."

This is out of the list of every bird that God says is an "abomination" (unclean). forbidden to eat. For years I've thought that the Raven was a type of the gentiles.

Genesis 8:7
"And he (Noah) sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth."

Noah's releases this unclean bird first out of the Ark window. This may be the Catching Away. notice the Raven never returns.

Elijah, who is "caught up" to Heaven alive in a chariot of fire, is associated with both ravens (1 Kings 17:4) and gentiles (1 Kings 17:9-24), and even the Lord Jesus mentions it in Luke 4:25,26:

"But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow." (gentile).

After the brook dries up due to the drought, Elijah is sent to Sidon to the widow.

The second word that has an in-text value of 154 is "Sidon".
Hi Clay,
1115 is interesting. Tu B'Av can be regarded as falling on the 15th day of the 11th month in the civil calendar counting from Tishri.
