"Tracking Michael, the Shout and the Resurrection"


Readers -

in my other post I put forth the argument that Michael is the archangel
mentioned in the famous 1 Thessalonians 4:16 passage -

"For the Lord himself shall descend 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 traced the following gematria values across Testaments:

Michael's greek gematria = 689

all words with an in-text 689 gematria value are listed here:

these lists are always so overwhelming, but examining this list shows
that there is indeed a word valued at 689 that matches what is mentioned
in 1 Thessalonians 4:16.

i.e. SHOUT.

2 Chronicles 15:14
"And they sware unto the LORD with a loud voice, and with shouting
(8643h), and with trumpets, and with cornets."

not only is SHOUT in the verse, but so is TRUMPET.

total verse gematria for this verse = 3122

continue tracking ...

all verses with a total gematria value of 3122 are found here:

http://www.biblewheel.com/GR/GR_Database.asp?Gem_Num=3122

examining the list, turns up a major Resurrection verse:

Daniel 12:2
"And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some
to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt."

so that went from Michael 689, to Shout 689 to verse total 3122 to
Resurrection verse total 3122.

imho.
