see my other post on 1597 to get the 9-11 number review.
i'm sure you can count to the Resurrection of the Dead/Catching Away event from 9-11. I also feel, and I'm not alone, that terrible destruction is coming to the earth at the same time. this may be the "sudden destruction" of ...
"For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child and they shall not escape."
the 343 number is what got plastered on the front pages of the world's news services when 9-11 happened. this number appears in Strong's concordance in it's proper place:
Strong's 343h = Eyd
"calamity 17, destruction 7; 24 1) distress, burden, calamity 1a) burden (of the righteous) 1b) calamity (of nation) 1c) disaster (of wicked) 1d) day of calamity.
first mention of 343h is in
"To me belongeth vengeance, and recompence; their foot shall slide in due time: for the day of their calamity (343h Eyd) is at hand, and the things that shall come upon them make haste."
here's more fuel to the fire. 9-11 is the forerunner of God's judgment, and a pointer to the events of 1 Thess 4:16,17.
you can see the word by word breakdown of the verse on Richard's McGough's excellent Bible Wheel website.
I looked at the list of gematria words looking for what I call a "target" word. this is a word that has a gematria value that i recognize or is based on a prime number I know to be associated with 9-11. (again, see the 911 number review in my 1597 post for background).
my target word in this verse is word number "Eleven" (sic).
it's value = 314 (157 x 2)
running gematria total of all words through and including the 314 word =
go to Strong's 2597 greek
"come down 41, DESCEND 18, go down 17, fall down 1, step down 1, get down 1, fall 1, vr come down"
"For the Lord himself shall descend (2597g) from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: ..."
i'm sure one can count (or will be able to count after its over) from 9-11 to the Descending of the Lord Jesus, which precedes the Resurrection/Rapture event. how you do that and what number you might be looking for, or what base prime the Lord will use is unknown. it might be a day count based on 109, 113, 157, 37 etc. I suspect we will not know until after its over.
if you want to indulge yourself in a bit of speculation, go to Strong's hebrew 2597, and check it's meaning.
157 is known to be associated with the Lord Himself, and base conversions indicate that.
greek gematria for Jesus = 888
888 decimal = 1570 octal (157 x 10)
