Dear John, Ariel, Robert Belanger and Doves:
Isaiah 35:8; A highway will be there, a roadway, And it will be called the Highway of Holiness. The unclean will not travel on it, But it will be for him who walks that way, And fools will not wander on it.
42, means: The number of the generation of Christ. (The generation of man is 35,)
Job 42:16; After this, Job lived 140 years, and saw his sons and his grandsons, four generations.
(140 Divided by 4 = 35) plus 7 (# of Perfection) = 42, Christ’s Generation.
6 (# of Man) x 7 (# of Perfection) The perfect man, = 42: The World’s Witness (#4 number of the world) (#2 number of the Witness)
Matthew 1:17; So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; from David to the deportation to Babylon, fourteen generations; and from the deportation to Babylon to the Messiah, fourteen generations. 14 X 35 = 490.
Daniel 9:24; Seventy weeks (70) X (7) = 490)have been decreed for your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to make an end of sin, to make atonement for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal up vision and prophecy and to anoint the most holy place.
June 7th was the date that Jerusalem was restored to the Jewish people in 1967 during the Six Day War.
June 7th 1967 + 40 years = until June 7th 2007
June 7th 1967 + 41 years = until June 7th 2008
President Obama, was elected in 2008,
Back in 2008, the democratic speaker of the house, NANCY PELOSI made the statement that “Obama was the leader sent to us by God, and has blessed The US, as our savior.”
I wonder how well that went over with the millions of devout Christians.
As I stated above, in Matthew 1:17; has listed that number as of the generations of Jesus as 3 sets of 14 totaling 42 and that was when His first coming took place.
George W. Bush was the 42nd man not the 43rd. man to be President? God hid the fact, that President Bush is really #42 not #43. God hides little jewels like this all the time. He wants us to search out the treasure. President Obama is #44; or the 43rd man as President of the United States. Some say, George Bush may be our last legal President. We will know all Truth one day!
The #42, identifies the generation in which “Christ” appears in, but also indicates the timing for the crossing over into the promise land, since there were 41 camp movements in the wilderness and they crossed over the Jordan, into the Promised Land, on the 42nd movement.
By the way, the 42nd man as President is George W. Bush. President Bush is numbered as the #43rd, but in reality he is only the 42nd man to hold the Office as President His father, President George Herbert Walker Bush is called #41. Bill Clinton is called President #42 but is only the 41st. man to hold the Office. The mix-up over the numbers is attributed to (Grover Cleveland who was elected to 2 non-consecutive terms, #22 & 24. Also, look what else!!! Queen Elizabeth II, is the 42nd monarch in England’s recorded history.
"Truly I say to you, this generation (42) will not pass away until all these things take place.”

Second Coming of Jesus
Let's take 42. Number 42 is the number associated with the Coming of Jesus: both His first coming and the two manifestations at His second advent (He came into the world the first time in the 42nd generation from Abraham). He is coming back for His saints before the 42-month reign of the beast, perhaps 42 months before the beast's reign begins. He will return to the earth at the end of the 42-month reign of the beast to put an end to the wicked reign. The marvelous way in which this number works is the wonder of all wonders. My children of God, the time is at hand!
"So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations." That is in Matthew 1:17. Here are 14 generations three times over. Three times 14 makes 42. Here is the number three for the Resurrection, and 14 for Salvation.
"And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call His name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." See Matthew 1:21. Christ is also the "Resurrection, and the life:" That is in John 11:25. When Jesus comes for His saints, the dead in Christ will be raised and the salvation of their bodies will take place, "and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation." (Hebrews 9:28)
When three for the resurrection is multiplied by 14 for salvation, the product is 42, for the coming of Christ. When Jesus raised Lazarus, He spoke three words, "Lazarus, come forth." That is in John 11:43. There are also three Greek words here which have 14 letters. Here again the number three, for the resurrection, and 14, for salvation or deliverance, follow these three words with 14 letters. Lazarus came forth from the grave. When the three words are added to the 14 letters, they total 17 for victory out of the grave, "0 grave, where is thy victory?" (I Corinthians 15:55) "thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our (1) Lord (2) Jesus (3) Christ." This is in I Corinthians 15:57.
When the 14 letters in the three words Jesus spoke to Lazarus are multiplied by the three words the product is 42, for the second coming of Jesus. Fourteen times three is 42.
In all of this, there is a picture of what will take place when Jesus comes for His saints. Then the resurrection will take place, and three is for the resurrection. The salvation of their bodies will take place and 14 is the number for salvation. There is victory over death and the grave: three for resurrection and 14 for salvation total 17, the number for victory. "So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory." (I Corinthians 15:54)
All of this will be brought about at the coming of the Lord Jesus. When three for the resurrection of the bodies is multiplied by 14, the product is 42, for the coming of the Lord Jesus, when all this takes place.
According to the Greek, the word "anastasis" is found 42 times in the New Testament. In the translation according to the revelation that Jesus gave me, this word translated "Resurrection" 39 times, "raising again," one time, "raised to life again," one time, and "that shall raise," one time. This makes 42 times this word occurs where John said, "Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years." (Revelation 20:6) This connects the first resurrection with 42, the number for the coming of Jesus. A compound form of the Greek word "anastasis" is found one time in the New Testament; it is "exanastasis." It is found in Philippians 3:11, and is translated "Resurrection."
If this compounded form of anastasis be counted, the 42nd time this word would be found is in Revelation 20:5 where it is said, "This is the first resurrection." In the statement, "This is the first resurrection." there are five Greek words and 20 Greek letters. When the numbers from one to 20 are added up the sum is 210. When this number, 210, is divided by five, the number of words in the passage, it comes out exactly 42, which is the number for the second coming of Jesus.
When Jesus comes to raise His sleeping saints and to translate the living saints then their bodies will be redeemed and the manifestation of the sons of God will take place. "For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God." (Romans 8:19) At that time it will be brought to light who are really the sons of God.
In the same connection Paul said, "And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body." See Romans 8:23.
Number 22 stands for light or making manifest, number 20 stands for redemption, and when 22 js added to 20, the sum is 42, for the second coming of Jesus at which time the manifestation of the sons of God will take place and their bodies will be redeemed. Where can such a book as the Bible be found?
The return of Jesus to the earth to reign is also connected with 42. The beast or the man of sin is to be destroyed with the brightness of our Lord's coming. "For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brighteness of his coming," (II Thessalonians 2:7-8)
There are 36 Greek words in this statement, the exact number of words found about the beast in Revelation 3:2, and the exact number of times the beast is mentioned in the book of Revelation. This also shows that this person will be destroyed with the brightness of our Lord's coming.
In Revelation 13:5, it is stated that the beast will continue 42 months, "and power was given unto him to continue FORTY and TWO months." In Revelation 19:11-21, there is a prophecy of the return of Christ to judge and make war. He is called Faithful and True in the 11th verse, in the 13th verse He is called the Word of God. In the 16th verse. He is called the King of kings and the Lord of lords. In the 19th and 20th verses. He is a prophecy of the beast being cast into the lake of tire and brimstone. So since the beast will continue 42 months and since he will be destroyed at the return of Jesus, then Jesus will return to reign at the end of 42 months of the beast's power, this again connects our Lord's coming with the number 42.
I've just told you something, children of God, Hallelujah!
Jesus revealed unto me of His coming and when. Oh, if you can just see what Jesus has revealed to you! That you might know the time of His coming! Not the day nor the hour, but the time of His coming Let us see how 42 balances with the number of the devil plus the number of the beast. Here is something to make us marvel indeed. Peter said in I Peter 1:13, "Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." When five for grace is multiplied by 42 for the coming of Christ, the product is 210. Keep this number in mind.
In Jude, in the 14th and 15th verses, there is a prophecy of Jesus coming in judgment. "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these saying. Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints. To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him." Here is a prophecy of Jesus coming in judgment. Number 11 stands for judgment and 42 for the coming of Jesus. When 42 is multiplied by 11, the product is 462. Let this number, also, be kept in mind.
It was Enoch, the seventh from Adam, who prophesied of this judgment. When 462 is divided by seven, the number connected with Enoch, it comes out exactly 66 times. Enoch prophesied of judgment. When you take 11, the number for judgment, and add all the numbers from one to 11, the sum is 66.
A description? This coming in judgment is given in Revelation 19:11-12 and Revelation is the 66th and last book of the Bible.
Now let us add 210 (which was obtained by multiplying 42 for the coming of Jesus, by five, the number for grace as given in I Peter 1:13) to 462 (which is 11, for the judgment, divided by 42, which is for the coming of Jesus). These two numbers, 210 and 462, make 672. Six, the number for the devil or Satan, added to 666, the number of the beast (see Revelation 13:18), equals 672. The evil combination of the devil and the beast will be broken up by our Lord's return.
How about those numbers, children of God? Who could write such a book or books and make them balance like this? Only one inspired by God to do so, by the revelation of Jesus Christ! Each of the 66 books of the Bible was inspired and guided by Him, Who is all-wise and never makes a mistake.
