John writes in his first letter:
1 John 2:18"Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time."
John writes that there is a specific hour (time) that the appearance of many antichrists heralds; it is the Last Hour.
That word translated "antichrists" has a value of 1651.
Curious to know what other Greek words had that value, and to know what their context verses were, I looked it up.
There are eight total verses, and the last two are in Revelation, the Last Days book.
Revelation 2:8"And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;" ...
The 1651 valued word is "Smyrna".Smyrna means "myrrh".
That verse has a gematria value of:10489.
There are three verses with that same numeric value, and they are all in Revelation!
Revelation 2:8 is the first one.
Revelation 5:3 is the second one."And no man in heaven, nor in earth, neither under the earth, was able to open the book, neither to look thereon."
Revelation 10:2 is the third one -"Rev 10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,"
There are probably several conclusions to reach, but my focus is the obvious:the number 10489 is intrinsic to the Book of the Revelation.
In my vision of the Library in Heaven in December 1997, the bookcase of Bible books in front of me clearly showed certain books had colored ribbons around their spines. These ribbons represented "themes" intrinsic to that specific book. Certain numbers operate the same way. They belong to one book and one book alone.
The astute reader can also see in the above scripture verses 5:3 and 10:2, the theme of a "book".
Jesus is Lord.
