NUMBERBITE

daily number thingies that are easy to digest

Professor Ian Mallett

Read this first: RAPTURETTE 2.0

Dear Doves,

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.

The Rapture

It is both beautiful and marvelous how the four key RAPTURE verses, 1 Corinthians 15:51, 15:52 and 1 Thessalonians 4:16, 4:17 marry together.

Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 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: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The English gematriot (plural of gematria) of these four verses are: 6204, 8230, 8374 and 9255. The alternate addition and subtraction, a common process in God's mathematics, is 6204 - 8230 + 8374 - 9255 = -2907. This figure 2907 can be expressed as 3 x 969, the latter figure being equal to the English gematria of 'THE RAPTURE'!!!

The gematria of the first verse of these four from 1 Corinthians and from 1 Thessalonians total 14578 (6204 + 8374) that is equal to 74 JESUS (English ordinal) x 197 IMMANUEL (Hebrew meaning GOD WITH US). 14,578 clustered (14 + 578) = 592 GODHEAD (Greek). The sum of the prime factors of 14578 is 2 + 37 + 197 that equals 236. This figure 236 can be expressed as 118 + 118. Is this a double witness to 11 - 8 - 2006?

The sum of the chapter and verse references with the colons removed 1551 + 1552 + 416 + 417 = 3936. This figure is 6 x 656 MESSIAH (Greek).

The first and the last word values from each of these four Scriptures are 109 78 59 78 156 405 263 and 184. The sum of these is 1332. The figure 1332 is a multiple of 37 and is equal to 2 x 666.

Praise the LORD, the Wonderful Numberer, JESUS CHRIST!
