Genesis 1:2 reads as follows:
"And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters."
This is without a doubt one of the most mysterious verses in the Bible, and there is a clear number association between this verse and the interpretating of dreams by Joseph and Daniel. Here it is.
The total hebrew numeric value of Genesis 1:2 = 3546.
There are two other verses in the Bible that have that same value. Go here to see those:
Second verse with a 3546 verse is also in Genesis. It is Genesis 40:8 -
"And they said unto him, We have dreamed a dream, and there is no interpreter of it. And Joseph said unto them, Do not interpretations belong to God? tell me them, I pray you."
Joseph is in an egyptian prison with Pharaoh's Butler and Baker. They have dreams on the same night that they cannot interpret. The next morning Joseph correctly gives them the interpretations from God.
Switch number systems from Gematria to Strong's number system using 3546.
Strong's 3546 Hebrew = Kehal, to be able.
Found only in the book of Daniel in four verses that have to do with the ability to interprete dreams and/or visions:
Daniel 2:26"The king (Nebuchadnezzar) answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?"
Daniel 4:18"This dream I king Nebuchadnezzar have seen. Now thou, O Belteshazzar, declare the interpretation thereof, forasmuch as all the wise men of my kingdom are not able to make known unto me the interpretation: but thou art able; for the spirit of the holy gods is in thee."
Daniel 5:8"Then came in all the king's wise men (Belshazzar's wise men): but they could not read the writing, nor make known to the king the interpretation thereof ." (ie the handwriting on the wall).
Daniel 5:15"And now the wise men, the astrologers, have been brought in before me, that they should read this writing, and make known unto me the interpretation thereof: but they could not shew the interpretation of the thing:" (ie the handwriting on the wall).
You can see there is a clear and deliberate association that God set up between the catastrophic state of the earth in Genesis 1:2, the hovering of God's Spirit, and the miraculous interpretations of the dreams or visions of an important Egyptian king and two Babylonian kings.
That association is clear, but the interpretation is not. It is still mysterious.
Why is a ruined earth, a hovering Spirit of God and the interpretation of the dreams of kings by two major Bible prophets related?
Jesus is Lord. <><
