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.
NUMBERBITE #0007 2006-10-12
The Beginning of the Testaments (part 1)
IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The Hebrew gematria of this opening verse of the Old Testament is 2701 that is the 37th hexagonal number and equal to 37 x 73. The hidden mathematics in these 7 Hebrew words is a marvel of ingenuity, unsurpassable by the mathematics of any other sentence in any language - absolutely guaranteed! There can be no question whatsoever of its Divine origin. The mathematical complexities assert over and over that the number 37 is the number of God.
The English gematria total of this verse is not a multiple of 37 and some researchers have instantly dismissed its validity purely for this reason. If only they had delved a little deeper! The English gematria values for ' IN the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.' are: 59 213 189 71 308 213 469 55 213 304. The total is 2094 (2 x 3 x 349). It can be observed that the initial word 'IN' is capitalized. The sum of the remaining nine values is 2035, a number that 'clusters' to 37 (2 + 035)! Furthermore, just as 2701 is geometric in that it is the 37th hexagonal number, 2035 is the 37th pentagonal number!
The first three digits of this string of numbers are 59 2 and 592 is a multiple of 37! This is the only occurrence of three successive digits forming a number that is a multiple of 37 out of a possible 25. The number 592 is the Greek gematria of GODHEAD and surely the 3 digits indicate the Trinity. The English gematria of TRINITY is 1258, yet another multiple of 37 (x 34).
The first three letter values, I=9 + N=50 + T=200 sum to 259 and this is equal to 7 x 37! This is the only occurrence of three successive letter values summing to a number that is a multiple of 37 out of a possible 39. Note that 7 x 37 is a digital representation of 737, the Genesis 1:1 factors in the Hebrew gematria 37 and 73 overlaid.
The 7 combinations of the 3 numbers that are multiples of 37 derived from the English gematria of Genesis 1:1 :-
1. 2035 = 11 x 185 - 'filling' of EL (God) Hebrew
2. 592 = GODHEAD Greek
3. 2035 + 592 = 2627 = 37 x 71 GOD English
4. 259 = 7 x 37 - The prime factors of Genesis 1:1 73, 37 Hebrew
5. 2035 + 259 = 2294 = 31 EL x 74 Ordinal value JESUS English
6. 592 + 259 = 851 = SALVATION - English
7. 2035 + 592 + 259 = 2886 = 26 YHWH x 111 WONDERFUL Hebrew and 2886 clustered =888 JESUS !!!
Praise the LORD, the Wonderful Numberer, JESUS CHRIST!
