daily number thingies that are easy to digest
Professor Ian Mallett
I believe the Lord has laid it on my heart to share some of the wonders of His mathematics in small soundbites, or rather numberbites, to enable more believers to understand God's use of numbers and to encourage them to seek His hidden treasures. I am not a 'professor' in the accepted sense of the word but my dictionary says a professor is one who openly declares belief in certain doctrines. It is my heart's desire to teach God's children some of these hidden wonders and I hope that you Doves will find blessings and inspiration through these daily offerings.

THAT CERTAIN SAINT
Then I heard one saint speaking, and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake, How long shall be the vision concerning the daily sacrifice, and the transgression of desolation, to give both the sanctuary and the host to be trodden under foot?
It becomes evident from a careful reading and understanding of the next three verses 'that certain saint' is Jesus Christ. In the Authorised King James Bible with margin notes, there is a marker against 'that certain saint'. The margin note reads: Palmoni, or, the numberer of secrets, or, the wonderful numberer. The word 'Palmoni' is the transliteration of a mysterious Hebrew word that cannot be translated. This word is a strange amalgamation of two other Hebrew words meaning 'wonderful' and 'to number or count'. JESUS CHRIST is that certain saint PALMONI, the WONDERFUL NUMBERER.
The English gematria of PALMONI is 70 + 1 + 30 + 40 + 60 + 50 + 9 = 260
At a glance we can see immediately that this figure 260 can be expressed as 10 x 26. Gematria is based on the assignment of numbers to the letters of the alphabet and in our numbering system we have 10 digits (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) and 26 letters in the alphabet. How marvelous it is that the gematria of PALMONI expresses the fundamental concept of gematria and that the word means WONDERFUL NUMBERER.
When the letter values of PALMONI are alternately added and subtracted (70 - 1 + 30 - 40 + 60 - 50 + 9) the result is 78, a triangular number that is equal to 3 x 26. Encoded in the name Palmoni therefore is a numeric reference to the triune (3) nature of God (In Hebrew YHWH = 26). The sum of all the composite numbers from 1 to 78 is equal to 2368, the Greek gematria of JESUS CHRIST. The sum of all the prime numbers from 1 to 78 is equal to 713, the prime gematria of JESUS CHRIST in the Greek.
Praise the LORD, the Wonderful Numberer, JESUS CHRIST!
