In previous post in this series I have shared samples of the Divine Mathematical "DNA" of Genesis 1:1 and Matthew 1:17, which from a mathematical perspective, proves that the Bible is not of human origin but has a Divine beginning. In this post we will be looking at another amazing chapter, this time from the Gospel of John, that further elaborates this incredible aspect that the theological community would prefer to disappear into obscurity. What this all comes down to is that the original manuscripts used to translate the King James Bible were fully inspired, inerrant, infallible, and irrevocable. The King James Bible is (98.2% of it) the True Word of God. God is a mathematician and has placed His Seal, likened to "DNA" and it will not go away. God's Signature is found on all of nature and in particular, His Word!
The British physicist James Jeans once put it this way, "The Universe appears to have been designed by a pure mathematician." The bestselling author and astrophysicist Mario Livio asks the question in his book, 'Is God a Mathematician'. Paul Davies, author of 'The Goldilocks Enigma' in reviewing Mario Livio's book, stated "All science proceeds from the assumption that the cosmos is ordered in an intelligible way. Beneath the bewildering richness of natural phenomena there lies an elegant mathematical unity. How astonishing that the human mind is attuned to this hidden subtext of nature! With elegance and clarity, Mario Livio charts how, through science and mathematics, we have come to glimpse the fundamental rules on which the universe runs."
I'm not going to allow myself to be diverted from the mathematical evidence of proof concerning the King James Bible, by engaging in the futile 'textual criticism' arguments that has been used to divert me from the evidence and proof confirming the credence of the KJV Bible. To do so would only confuse the reader further because the 'textual criticism' issues are far greater and too complex an issue to address in a forum like Five Doves. Make no mistake about this issue, there are far more aspects and issues involved that serve to blur an issue that has existed, going as far back to when the formalization of the Canon occurred. Theological 'textual criticism' actually has been rendered to be needless by the academic discipline of mathematics. Theologians haven't fully recognized their demise.
Since 'Mathematics' is the only "pure" science by definition of its being replicable, meaning that one can repeat the same tests repeatedly to test its veracity and reliability. In simple terms, we can proves things through mathematics. In simple math 2+2+2 always equals 6, unless you are using the government's 'Common Core' methods. I jest, but the world's greatest scientific minds have prevailed. Math is the root of all scientific inquiry. Science is the application of mathematics. The bottom line of whether the KJV Bible is the True Word of God or not can actually be tested against the bench mark of the science of 'Mathematics' and computer analysis. This has been done and tested by many competent experts, for many years, and is an active ongoing practice. But first a few points of reference in aiding the reader to grasp this Divine Truth:
++Tracking the "Heptadic" Design Feature has been a far easier task than that of explaining how it originated in the first place.
++The miracle lies in the fact that every complete passage of Scripture in the Old Testament Hebrew Masoretic Text is built/constructed upon a design of "sevens" or what is known as the "Heptadic" Design Feature. It does not matter on what book of the Old Testament you choose to examine, the "DNA" is there.
++Ditto for the New Testament. The same "Heptadic" Design Feature exists in the Greek Byzantine Stephanos New Testament as well.
++Of all the world's languages, only the Greeks and the Hebrews used letters to represent numbers or numerical value. Linguists worldwide have confirmed this to be true. Every other language in the world uses a different method of numbers/symbols for representing systems of accounting measurement.
++The significance of the "Heptadic" Design Feature is deepened by the fact that, try as one may, no other unique numerical pattern based on another number, such as '3' or '10', can be found. Every number in our base-10 system has been tested through computer analysis.
++No other book in the world is constructed on such a numerical design. The Apocrypha or the other so-called Pseudepigraphal writings, nor any of the Greek classics, or other so-called 'holy writings' of the various world religions do not witness to God's "Heptadic" Design Feature. Q.E.D.
++Very little of this "Heptadic" Design Feature appears in our modern translations, other than specifics like the "seven" petitions of the Lord's Prayer; in the "seven" sayings of the Cross; the "seven" churches in Revelation; and in the 35 Miracles and 35 Parables by the Four Gospel writers - 35 + 35 = 70 or [7 x 10]. The "Heptadic" Design Feature is found primarily within the Greek/Hebrew text of the KJV Bible.
++It is also seen in the 63 books of the Hebrew Bible (not 66, because the Hebrew sages did not divide the books of Samuel, Kings, and Chronicles into two parts each).
++It, meaning the "Heptadic" Design Feature transcends specific groupings. For example, the Bible records "seven" persons raised from the dead (two in the Old Testament, and five in the New Testament). There are many other examples as well. I do not plan to share everything in these posts. The evidence is so extensive that few can handle its depth.
The significance of the "Heptadic" Design Feature is tremendously important. It is nothing short of Divine! It hallmarks the Old and New Testaments as being the direct pronouncements of the Creator of this seemingly limitless universe. The Holy Scriptures have been given to mankind by the Creator Himself! As a Messianic believer stated to me recently, "It clinches the fact that we have a heaven to gain and a hell to shun. That the Lord Christ Jesus was the true Messiah of the Jewish nation, as foretold in Isaiah chapter 53, that He was God. That He is the world's only way of salvation from sin. That He rose from the dead. That He is coming again - very soon!"
Even before I set out to share with the readers the series here on 'God's "Heptadic" Signature' I introduced the reader to the example of the New Testament meaning of the word "mystery" and its plural form "mysteries". I noted the two words are found or occur exactly the same number of times as their occurrences in the Hebrew alphabet:
Mystery = 22X
Mysteries = 5X
But that was just the beginning. There are the basic 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet. There is what are known as the 5 final forms of letters that are used to indicate the end of a sentence or paragraph. Keep in mind, the original Hebrew text was one long string of continuous letters - no punctuation. I don't need to go into an explanation here as to how the translators were able to so easily decide where chapter/verse markers were to be inserted. The answer is amazingly simple and I would rather explain it at a later time.
But there is more to the 'mystery'. Each occurrence where the two words ('mystery' and 'mysteries') appear contains a subtle or hidden meaning within the text portion where it appears that communicates a "theme" or meaning to the corresponding letter occurrence. This has nothing to do with what are referred to as the 'Bible Codes'. That is something entirely different than what I am discussing.
All of this has been lost to the reader, clergy or laity. The "religious" of the world do not want you to know about it. They do not want to believe it themselves. Why? Because of the potential implications that one then has to face up to and deal with. Lucifer doesn't want you to know about it either! Any pastor that uses any of the Per-versions (other translations of the Bible) doesn't want you to know about it. You can be positively sure those who attack the KJV Bible do not want you to know about this astonishing truth. The Vatican does not want you to know about this truth, to be sure. Defenders of the KJV Bible are always attacked for being anti-Roman Catholic. Justifiably so I might add and agree, because defenders of the KJV Bible know well their history! I can assure you that this is not taught in theological seminaries or Bible colleges. It is definitely not in the curriculum!
God has not only given His 'DNA' signature, He has left us His calling card! You can verify that the KJV Bible is the True Word of God, and you can begin to do so by taking a KJV Bible and go to the Psalms. Turn to Psalm 119, the longest Psalm in the Bible. Psalm 119 contains 176 verses. It is structured on 22 stanzas of 8-verses each.
In the KJV Bible (only, not noted in other translations) each 8-verse stanza is headed by a corresponding Hebrew letter of the 22 Hebrew letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Each of the sequenced Hebrew letters' meanings will be found in that particular 8-verse stanza. In other words, the particular theme of that Hebrew letter is found, hidden in plain sight, embedded within its 8-verse stanza text.
As an example, turn to the 8-verse stanza - verses 25-32. Directly above it you should find the Hebrew letter for "Dalet" and/or spelled out "Dalet" or of similar rendition. In Hebrew, the letter "Dalet" means "door" or something related to the meaning of a door. In my KJV Bible, I find the word "way" or "the way" appears five times. The word "door" does not appear but think about "doorway" and you will begin to see the picture lesson being taught. This method is taught in each of everyone of the twenty-two 8-verse stanzas for the entire Psalm. The corresponding meaning is usually obvious but sometimes it may seem nuanced by its translated English meaning word.
The entire Psalm 119 is basically an index to the Hebrew alphabet or vice versa. We have many many other examples; however, Psalm 119 is the longest Psalm in the Bible to look at it in its entirety, and it gives the reader an easily understandable aspect to the KJV Bible. It provides you a starting point, as the "Heptadic" Design Feature is much more in its larger scope. Just remember, you will not find this in Psalm 119 of any one of the infinite number of Bibles on the shelf of your local Christian bookstore, not a single one!
Could it all be a coincidence? That is what most people erroneously conclude. Should I say that is not by accident and Satan wants you to believe that it is merely coincidence? However, what is more interesting is the fact that every other translation of the Bible, to date, has chosen to eliminate the Hebrew letters in their "counterfeit" Bibles. As much as I like "The Living Bible" or the "New American Standard Bible", they are simply "counterfeits"! They look like the true Bible, they feel like the true Bible, and, in every way possible, they resemble the true Bible. But the fact is they are still "counterfeits".
Ask yourself this simple question, if someone gave you a new "Benjamin", would you accept it if you knew it was a counterfeit? I don't think anyone, in their right mind, would want to run the risk of being arrested for passing off a phony "Benjamin" at your local supermarket or restaurant, that is if they knew their "Benjamin" was funny money.
As I stated in "God's Heptadic Signature -4" The King James Bible is the ONLY Bible that contains God's "Heptadic" Signature Design. It authenticates God as the Author. It further validates the reliability of the manuscripts used to translate the KJV Bible.
Going back to a point I made earlier here is that Mathematics is the only "pure" science and that one can replicate the premises of Dr. Ivan Panin, or Blaise Pascal, Sir Isaac Newton, Professor Elyahu Rips, Doran Witzham, Yoav Rosenberg, or Albert Einstein. What I am sharing here is not all that new.
There are so many facets to this that it is simply too large to contain in secrecy. For example, earlier I noted the occurrences of the word "mystery" appearing 22X. One of my favorite examples of Bible 'counts' that correspond to the themes is that of the 'number' of chapter 22's in the Bible. There are exactly twenty-two books of the Bible with chapter 22's. Twenty-two is one of the most obvious numbers relating to Jesus Christ and is a strong indicator that all those chapters are about Jesus Christ. The last letter (the 22nd letter) of the Hebrew alphabet is "Tav" or "Tavh" and its meaning is "truth and perfection". What does John 14:6 tell us?: "Jesus said unto him. I am the way, the truth, and the life: No man cometh unto the Father, but by Me."
At the beginning I stated that I would share another example of God's "Heptadic" Design, this time from the Gospel of John. I did this study of the Greek text over a span of six mornings, preceding Rosh HaShanah, working between 7 and 11 AM. In this post we will see another amazing example from the 17th chapter of John. But first, a few fascinating details that coalesce together in God's Word:
++The 17th letter of the Hebrew alphabet is "Peh" which means "mouth and speech".
++The 17th chapter of John is devoted to Jesus' intercessory prayer.
++The 17th verse states, "sanctify them through thy truth, thy word is truth."
I find these three points as an astonishing intersection of the Word of God, an example of God's signature calling card, as good as it gets. I'm just kidding. You have only viewed the beginning. We are just scratching the surface of what runs deep in the Word of God.
Jesus' prayer of intercession is a pivotal passage as where the Lord pours out His heart to His heavenly Father. Here is a partial list of the "Heptadic" Design Features I found in John chapter 17:1-27:
1. 490 words or [7 x 70]
2. 70 adverbs or ]7 x 10]
3. 2,079 letters or [7 x 297]
4. 70 articles of speech or [7 x 10]
5. 49 sentences or [7 x 7]
6. 49 pronoun "I"or [7 x 7]
7. 1,162 Vowels or [7 x 166]
8. 49 references to Christ or [7 x 7]
9. 917 consonants or [7 x 131]
10. 91 references to persons or [7 x 13]
11. 98 verbs or [7 x 14]
12. 91 references to the Godhead or [7 x 13]
13. 77 nouns or [7 x 11]
14. 7 references to God or [7 x 1]
15. 70 conjunctions or [7 x 10]
16. 7 references to Father or [7 x 1]
17. 49 prepositions or [7 x 7]
18. 7 references to the world or [7 x 1]
19. 126 pronouns to others or [7 x 18]
I have listed only 19 features of God's "Heptadic" Design Feature or signature design authentication. Yes, there are many more, probably upwards of eight more but I'm saving them for a book that I am writing on God's "DNA". As I noted in an earlier point, it is easier to track the "Heptadic" Design Feature than to explain how it came to be. I've studied and researched this phenomena for eighteen years but only recently discovered the answer to the larger reason on how it came to be and what it all means. I will share that in the next segment of this series part 6.
It is important to note that in the scientific discipline of statistics and probability, scientists as a whole, has concluded that any probability of 1 in 10 to the 50th power (50 zeros behind it) is an impossibility.
Translating the "Heptadic" Design Feature to the 'Law of Chances', for any 3 numbers to be multiples of seven accidentally, there is only one chance in 7 x 49, or only 1 chance 343.
Thus, according to the 'Law of Chances', for any 1 FEATURE or NUMERIC FACT to occur accidentally, or randomly, there is only 1 chance in 7.
For 2 features - 1 chance in 49
For 3 features - 1 chance in 343
For 4 features - 1 chance in 2,401
For 5 features - 1 chance in 16,807
For 6 features - 1 chance in 117,649
For 7 features - 1 chance in 823,543
For 8 features - 1 chance in 5,764,801
For 9 features - 1 chance in 40,353,607
For 10 features - 1 chance in 282,475,249
For 11 features - 1 chance in 1,977,326,743
For 12 features - 1 chance in 13,841,287,201
For 13 features - 1 chance in 96,889,010,407
For 14 features - 1 chance in 678,223,072,849
For 15 features - 1 chance in 4,747,561,509,943
For 16 features - 1 chance in 33,232,930,569,601
For 17 features - 1 chance in 232,630,513,987,207
For 18 features - 1 chance in 1,628,413,597,910,449
For 19 features - 1 chance in 11,398,895,185,373,143
For 20 features - 1 chance in 79,792,266,297,612,001
For 21 features - 1 chance in 558,545,864,083,284,007
For 22 features - 1 chance in 3,909,821,048,582,988,049
For 23 features - 1 chance in 27,368,747,340,080,916,343
For 24 features - 1 chance in 191,581,231,380,566,414,401
Thus, according to the 'Law of Chance', for the 19 features listed for John chapter 17, that I noted previously, to occur in John 17, to occur in a passage accidentally, there is only 1 chance in 11,398,895,185,373,143. Keep in mind, this is for just one single chapter, there are twenty more chapters in John that I have not extrapolated out the numerical odds. The odds would soon exceed the width of the page and no longer fit on a single line. The point here is it didn't happen as a result of random chance, or by accident, then it can only occur by one other means - BY DESIGN! Design implies a designer, and we know that designer as the God of the Bible.
The Gospel of John contains 21 chapters, 879 verses, 18,658 words.
In the placement order of the KJV Bible, John's chapters 1-21, are the 998th -1,018th chapters of the Bible.
In terms of John's 879 verses, they are located in the KJV Bible at these verse locations: 26,046 to 26,924.
Earlier I noted that only the Greek and Hebrew language make use of their alphabet to inscribe numerical value. Each letter of both the Greek and Hebrew hold or represent a 'number' value. The study of this aspect of the Biblical languages is known as "Gematria".
Dr. Ivan Panin besides being a fluent Greek scholar was himself a trained mathematician, and an agnostic when he began to study the "Heptadic" Design Feature. At some point in his study of this topic, he came full circle to face his own sinful state, and became a believer in Christ Jesus. His conclusion was that the Bible was the inspired Word of God and there was simply no other explanation. I know that he would have appreciated the use of the high-speed modern day computer.
Dr. Panin publicly invited the finest brains of his day to prove that his facts were refutable. He was so serious about this that he offered a sizable monetary prize to anyone who could disprove his findings. He wanted the facts to be disproved, even suggesting that it should be submitted for legal consideration by attorneys before a judge of the Superior or Supreme Court of New York state.
Ralph Muncaster in his book 'A Skeptic's Search for God' states the following on 'God and Probability', "I will always believe in statistics and probability. It simply makes sense that if something is sufficiently improbable (like winning many lotteries in a row with a single ticket for each), in essence we know it to be impossible, barring some super-natural influence (or cheating). Many scientists hold to the standard that anything with a probability of less than 1 chance in 10 to the 50th power (that is 1 with 50 zeros after it) is absurd, or impossible. By taking this a step further, we might conclude that anything with a statistical chance of less than 1 in to 10 to the 50th power that happens any way is of supernatural origin."
Ralph Muncaster is a professional engineer and former academic professor, now Director of the Institute of Contemporary Christian Faith, lecturing and speaking before colleges and churches around the country. He has authored eighteen books on Biblical Apologetics.
While I have only listed the probability for 24 features, the full illustration of "Compound Probabilities" for the entire Gospel of John's other twenty chapters deal with numbers that, are so large, they are so unmanageable manually, and that they dwarf the 19 features of the 17th chapter of the Gospel of John.
All of this is often overwhelming to the typical non-mathematical-oriented mind. Pastors, seminary professors, theologians, only rarely claim a mathematical background in their formal education. This is the chief reason as to why even the KJV Bible only folks are unfamiliar with what I have shared in these five posts to date. As I have stated numerous times in my postings, I never identified myself with the KJV-only group. If anything, I would have been identified with those favorable toward the NASB translation. It was my exposure to Dr. Ivan Panin's works and the Stanford University 'Computers for Christ' group that study the Bible using the computer and advanced algorithms. I purchased copies of many of Dr. Panin's works years ago. They along with my experience working with the very first initial computerization of the KJV Bible at the University of Pittsburgh's Computing Center in 1963/64 that led me to the conclusion that the KJV Bible is the True Word of God, and that the manuscripts used by the KJV Bible translators were accurate. For me, the evidence had to be quantifiable. As I have said before, the KJV Bible is 98.2% accurate with the remaining 1.8% of little affect to the Biblical message.
Furthermore, each complete passage is linked one to the other by the same "Heptadic" Design Feature, while all the complete passages in an entire book such as the Gospel of John are over-arched by a Grand "Heptadic" design. Then again, the separate individual books are linked one with another so that the entire Bible is over-arched in the original Biblical tongue by the magnificent design of "seven".
Those reading the Bible are soon impressed by the frequent occurrences of the number "7" or the word "seven" and its many variants. I believed I mentioned this detail in an earlier post, but in case you missed it, I will repeat it here. In the visual or readable English text of the Bible we have the pattern hundreds of times:
Seven 463X in 391 verses
Sevenfold 6X in 5 verses
Sevens 2X in 2 verses
Seventeen 10X in 10 verses
Seventieth 6X in 6 verses
Seventh 120X in 115 verses
Seventy 61X in 60 verses
A total of 668X
There is another category where things, names, people, that = 7 but are not specifically stated. An example of this was in the last post "God's Heptadic Signature -4" - the "seven" miracle in the Gospel of John. At my last count, I could identify close to 150 such specific examples.
With the "Heptadic" Design Feature found in the Hebrew and Greek text we can even establish many times what the original text is, in the case of passages of Scriptures which have caused division or were ambiguous to cause misunderstanding/disagreement. This fact is not common knowledge in the theological community, yet it is being studied by a dedicated group of Christian and Jewish believers who are highly skilled and competent as mathematicians, computer programmers, and statistical specialists.
As a closing remark, and since I have been dealing with the Gospel of John, I will tell you that the 1,000th chapter of the Bible is none other than John chapter 3! I hardly think that I need to tell you what we will find there but nothing less than the 'keystone' verse for Christiainity - John 3:16! The KJV Bible (the manuscripts used in translating it into English) is the True Word of God. God's "Heptadic" Design Feature proves it beyond any doubt. There is no need to get into the arguments pertaining to 'textual criticism' since there is no consistency in what is argued for and against. We have the mathematical and computer science disciplines to thank for settling the issue. The signature of God's DNA is not found in any other English translation perversion or the manuscripts used.
Praise God, praise Him day and night,
