Bible Numbers 2.0

God, The Master Of Time

Only God knows the future, and only He controls it (Isaiah 40:21-42:17). In these 57 verses God told ancient Judah what He is going to do. These were new prophecies to take the place of prophecies that had already been fulfilled. They were to show God as master of time. He alone knew the future. Only God, who knew the future, could warn people they were going astray. Human created gods were worse than useless, a delusion.

God reveals three mysterious individuals who will bring judgment across large sections of the world (Isaiah 41:1-5). The third individual will encompass the world. Nevertheless, in the end it is God who brings the final judgment (Isaiah 42:13-17).

Who has stirred up one from the east, calling him in righteousness to his service? He hands nations over to him and subdues kings before him. He turns them to dust with his sword, to windblown chaff with his bow. He pursues them and moves on unscathed, by a path his feet have not traveled before. (Isaiah 41:2-3)1

The first is a conqueror from the east with impressive power over nations and kings. But it is God who stirred him up. It is God in righteousness who calls this individual to serve His purposes. God sweeps aside the nations for him, and subdues kings before him. Only because of God can this conqueror treat nations as dust, and stubble.

The distinguishing mark of this conqueror is that he travels new territory, lands he has never crossed before. This can only mean he does not travel by foot.

He causes great fear among the nations (verse 5). But the reaction of this fear is that the nations cling ever more tightly to their idols (verses 6-7).

God assures Israel He is with them, and that they should not fear this terrible conqueror. He has a different plan for them, separate from the nations crushed by this conqueror (verses 8-20).

Who is this future conqueror? It cannot be Cyrus since the Persians were mercenaries in Mesopotamia long before they became a major power. Cyrus was not conquering unknown lands. And Cyrus did not cause fear across the world.

Strangely, some commentators have even identified this mysterious person as Abraham. (Have they even read the prophecy?) Like Cyrus, Abraham did not cause fear throughout the world. God said these were new prophecies (Isaiah 42:9, 48:7). They are of the future.

The Mongols under Genghis Khan are a possible match with this description. Their cavalry burst out from the steppes of Asia, sweeping westwards into lands they had never traveled before. They were a tidal wave that forever changed the Western view of the Far East. Even the vast Muslim empire fell before them. Historians estimate a million Muslims were slaughtered at Baghdad by the Mongol commander Hulagu.2 The term Yellow Peril is forever embedded in Western consciousness.

The fact that the prophecy begins with Who has stirred- opens the possibility God is only indirectly responsible for his coming. God removes the obstacles, but God is not behind this conqueror. God acts in righteousness. This conqueror does not, and that is why the nations fear him.

I stirred up one from the north, and he has come, from the rising of the sun, and he shall call on my name; he shall trample on rulers as on mortar, as the potter treads clay. Who declared it from the beginning, that we might know, and beforetime, that we might say, He is right? There was none who declared it, none who proclaimed, none who heard your words. I first have declared it to Zion, and I give to Jerusalem a herald of good tidings. (Isaiah 41:25-27)

Unlike the first, God actually says He stirred up this conqueror. This second prophecy is of one who will come from the north but approaches from the east. This individual knows God’s name. Unlike the conqueror first mentioned, this person is meant to be good news for Jerusalem. God gives this prophecy so people will know He is right.

Cyrus the Persian fits this prophecy best.3 Persia is situated north and east of Israel. At first, the Medes and Persians were mercenaries coming down from the north in service to Mesopotamian kings. Later, they took over the entire region, approaching Israel from the north and east.

God reserves the longest prophecy for the third individual.

Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him, he will bring forth justice to the nations. He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not fail or be discouraged till he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his law. (Isaiah 42:1-4)

The third individual is the one God actually loves. This is Jesus, because he has God’s spirit. He will bring justice and healing. Unlike the other two, he will be gentle (Isaiah 42:1-7). Unlike the other two who came by force, and used force to achieve their means, Jesus takes time, possibly centuries, to establish true justice. (Most of Western culture's best traditions, best values and the best ideals arose from the influence of Christianity.)

The first two conquerors do not have God behind them. Jesus does (Isaiah 42:5-10). Jesus' coming was meant to be a joyful celebration of God’s healing love (Isaiah 42:11-12). Those who reject Jesus will face God’s wrath (Isaiah 42:13-17).

The numeric section runs from Isaiah 40:21 to 42:17.

3092 3002 3677 6422 2594

2.1The verses can be divided into 3 sections. Only the last section has a feature: 57421 = 7 x 13 x 631. SF: 651 = 3 x 7 x 31. (Chapter and verse together produce first and last.)

2.1.1First and last verse: 6020 = 2 x 2 x 5 x 7 x 43.

2.1.2First and last letter of each verse: 2639 = 7 x 13 x 29. SF: 49 = 7 x 7. SF: 14 = 2 x 7.

2.1.3First letter of each verse: 2587 = 13 x 199.

2.1.4The middle 7 verses (26 to 32): 29547 = 3 x 3 x 7 x 7 x 67.

2.1.5The middle 13 verses (23 to 35): 51220 = 2 x 2 x 5 x 13 x 197.

2.2.1Beginning with the first verse's total, and pulling every Nth verse after, only four series produce sums divisible by 7 or 13.

N = 3: 60284 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 2153.
N = 9: 21086 = 2 x 13 x 811. SF: 826 = 2 x 7 x 59.
N = 13: 15327 = 3 x 3 x 13 x 131.
N = 27: 10367 = 7 x 1481.

N works for 3, 9, 13, and 27. 3 + 9 + 13 + 27 = 52 = 2 x 2 x 13.

2.2.2The same can be done by starting at the Nth verse and continuing with every Nth after.

N = 2: 2 x 2 x 7 x 1601. SF: 1612 = 2 x 2 x 13 x 31.
N = 5: 34895 = 5 x 7 x 997.
N = 6: 27566 = 2 x 7 x 11 x 179.
N = 7: 26698 = 2 x 7 x 1907.
N = 8: 21672 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 43.
N = 13: 3 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 13.
N = 14: 2 x 3 x 7 x 13 x 23.
N = 15: 11480 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 7 x 41.

N works for 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 13, 14, and 15. Total of N: 70 = 2 x 5 x 7. SF: 14 = 2 x 7.

2.3Even positioned verses: 87607 = 13 x 23 x 293. SF: 329 = 7 x 47.

The Words And Letters

3.1The number of words: 676 = 2 x 2 x 13 x 13. 676 is a symmetrical number. The first two digits add up to thirteen as do the last two digits. This is a perfect square. The factors could have been written as 26 x 26. Twenty-six is the numeric sum of God's name (יהוה) in Hebrew. Throughout all these verses it is God who is speaking.

3.2The number of letters: 2800 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 5 x 7. SF: 25 = 5 x 5. SF: 10 = 2 x 5. SF: 7. (The chain of factors ends at seven.) The number of letters is not a perfect square, but the factors could have been written as 20 x 20 x 7 (seven squares of 20 x 20).

3.3The numeric total: 184688 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 17 x 97.

4.1The first letter of each word: 29134 = 2 x 7 x 2081.

4.1.2The positions of the first letter of each word: 928603 = 13 x 61 x 1171.

4.2The last letter of each word: 45304 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 809.

4.2.2The positions of the last letter of each word: 930727 = 7 x 132961.

4.2.3The first and last letters of each word: 74438 = 2 x 7 x 13 x 409. (An extra 13 appears.)

4.2.4Letters that are not first or last: 110250 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 5 x 7 x 7.

4.2.5The first and last letters of the passage: 140 = 2 x 2 x 5 x 7.

4.2.6The first word: 42 = 2 x 3 x 7.

4.3.1Odd positioned letters: 92099 = 7 x 59 x 223.

4.3.2Even positioned letters: 92589 = 3 x 7 x 4409.

4.4First half of the letters: 94406 = 2 x 13 x 3631.

5.1Position total of odd valued words: 112049 = 7 x 16007.

5.2Total of odd valued words: 89050 = 2 x 5 x 5 x 13 x 137.

5.3Position total of odd valued letters: 715429 = 11 x 13 x 5003.

5.4Total of odd valued letters: 1586 = 2 x 13 x 61.

5.5Even positioned words: 94783 = 13 x 23 x 317.

6.1Word position of letter's last appearance: 14728 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 263.

6.2Word sum of letter's last appearance: 5616 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 13.

7.1Rank all the letters of the passage. The lower half of the ranked list totals 7658 (2 x 7 x 547).

7.2The upper half of the ranked list totals 177030 (2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 7 x 281. SF: 301 = 7 x 43).

8.1Beginning with the first word and every 26th after: 7756 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 277.

8.1.1Beginning with the first word and every 52nd after: 3248 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 29.

8.1.2Start with the first letter and take every 56th after: 4249 = 7 x 607.

8.1.3Begin with the first letter and take every 140th after: 2106 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 13.

8.1.4Take the first letter every 700th after: 609 = 3 x 7 x 29. SF: 39 = 3 x 13.

8.1.5Start with the first letter and take every 400th after: 868 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 31. SF: 42 = 2 x 3 x 7.

8.2.1Every 25th letter: 5845 = 5 x 7 x 167.

8.2.2Every 35th letter: 4758 = 2 x 3 x 13 x 61.

8.2.3Every 70th letter: 2814 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 67.

8.2.4Every 100th letter: 1677 = 3 x 13 x 43.

8.2.5Every 200th letter: 1099 = 7 x 157.

Beginning with the first (or not) and taking every Nth word or letter may seem arbitrary, but these numbers are all from the factors derived from the number of words and letters. They are not exactly random.

Features 8.1 and 8.1.1 are the only two dealing with words. 26 and 52 are both divisible by 13.

Features 8.1.2 to 8.1.5 use the 56th, 140th, 700th and 400th letters after the first letter. 56 + 140 + 700 + 400 = 1296 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3). This is a perfect square of 36 x 36.

Features 8.2 to 8.2.4 use every 25th, 35th, 70th, 100th and 200th letter of the passage. 25 + 35 + 70 + 100 + 200 = 430. Four hundred and thirty is the number of years Israel dwelt in Egypt (Exodus 12:40). These prophecies given in Isaiah are another similar period of Israelite history where they are enslaved by idols.

9Since the number of words is a perfect square, the words can be arranged in a 26 x 26 table.

11.1The perimeters of each layer: 36827 = 7 x 5261.

11.1.2Four squares can be drawn inside the perimeter of the first and last layers. Each succeeding square is smaller than the last: 29680 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 7 x 53. (This breaks down perfectly with the first and last layers individually being divisible by 7. See the next two features.)

11.1.3Five squares on the first layer: 15029 = 7 x 19 x 113.

11.1.4Five squares on the last layer: 14651 = 7 x 7 x 13 x 23.

11.2Every other table: 105294 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 23 x 109.

11.3Every other column: 92099 = 7 x 59 x 223.

11.4First row of every layer: 8687 = 7 x 17 x 73.

11.5Every 5th row: 31525 = 5 x 5 x 13 x 97.

11.6Five by five checkered squares through all layers: 93310 = 2 x 5 x 7 x 31 x 43. (Of course this means the reverse checker would also be divisible by 7: 91378 = 2 x 7 x 61 x 107.)

11.7The surface or outside: 80311 = 7 x 7 x 11 x 149.

Past Evidence Of God’s Supremacy

Genesis chapter ten records the descendants of Noah filling the earth after the flood. Its numeric features pale in comparison with what was presented above, but the few features it does have bear God’s signature. These features show God allotted time and place for each nation according to a plan.

When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance, when he separated the sons of men, he fixed the bounds of the peoples according to the number of the sons of God. (Deuteronomy 32:8)4

The 287 Hebrew words of Genesis 10 are given below along with the numeric conversion.5

1.1The number of words: 287 = 7 x 41. (The number of letters is 1123, a prime number with no features.)

1.2The numeric total: 75579 = 3 x 7 x 59 x 61. The sum of the factors points back to God: 130 = 2 x 5 x 13.

2.1The first letter of each word: 8242 = 2 x 13 x 317. This is not divisible by 7, but the 13 again shows God’s hand. God is there at the beginning of each nation. The purpose of any nation is the glorify God (1 Chronicles 16:24; Psalm 102:15; Jeremiah 4:2). The nation that does this will endure.

2.2The last letter of each word: 30681 = 3 x 3 x 7 x 487. This can be considered as the end of a nation. When its iniquity is complete, God renders judgment bringing that nation to an end (Genesis 15:16).

3.1Odd valued and odd positioned words:

9  11  15  23  35 37  51 53  57  61  65  67  83  87 
75 209 243 243 21 733 65 321 303 401 451 293 911 31 

89  93 95  97  99  107 111 115 117 119 121 123 125 
293 17 507 401 407 121 285 401 407 407 407 407 407 

127 131 135 141 145 147 149 151 155 157 161 163 171 
501 407 401 93  521 29  385 135 345 463 205 41  109

287
83

Total: 15548 = 2 x 2 x 13 x 13 x 23. The two thirteens show God’s influence on the formation of nations.

3.2Even valued and even positioned words:

2   4  6  8  10  14  16 18 20  22 24  26  28 30   
840 58 48 62 102 490 58 72 366 68 378 654 66 1216 

32  34  36 40  42 44  48 58 60 62  68 72  74  80

84  90  92  96 100 106 108 110 114 116 118 122 124 
536 620 296 68 610 62  68  12  44  90  210 588 790 

126 130 132 134 136 160 166 168 170 174 176 178 180 
168 860 750 44  154 834 28  74  28  148 400 62  898 

184 190 194 196 200 202 204 212 216 218 220 224 226 
376 62  48  340 46  68  166 344 308 360 340 68  296 

258 260 270 272 276 278 280 282 284 
50  62  62  898 36  62  910 82  64

Total: 20700 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 23. Unlike the odd valued and odd positioned words, there is nothing here except the factor 23 representing man.

4.The 287 words can be divided two ways: 3.1) as seven groups of 41 words each, or 3.2) as forty-one groups of 7 words each.

4.1.1Of the seven groups (41 words each), the odd positioned groups together total 42378 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 1009.

4.1.2The even positioned groups total 33201 = 3 x 3 x 7 x 17 x 31.

4.1.3The first word from each of these groups: 2722 = 2 x 1361. The last word from each group: 1639 = 11 x 149. Neither of these are divisible by 7 or 13, because this chapter is about nations, and peoples, not about God. Every nation has a beginning and end, and unlike God, it is the beginning and end together that tells the complete fate of a nation: 2722 + 1639 = 4361 (7 x 7 x 89).

4.1.4Of the 7 groups of 41 words, two groups had totals that were prime numbers: 14081 + 11161 = 25242 (2 x 3 x 7 x 601).

4.2This time divide the 287 words into forty-one groups with seven words in each group.

4.2.1Add up the first word of each group: 8461 (no feature). The beginning of a nation is not as important as its end.

4.2.2Add up the last word of each group: 11158 = 2 x 7 x 797. SF: 806 = 2 x 13 x 31. SF: 46 = 2 x 23. The end of a nation is seen in its completion with the factor of 7. The judgment of God can be see in the sum of the first factors with a 13. The final sum of the factors is 46, which is the number of man (i.e. judgment falls on men).

4.2.3Of the 41 groups of 7, three were divisible by 7. (Three out of 41 is below average.)

Group 5: 2583 = 3 x 3 x 7 x 41.
Group 23: 2695 = 5 x 7 x 7 x 11.
Group 29: 1876 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 67.

The sum of these groups together: 7154 = 2 x 7 x 7 x 73. (An extra 7 appears.)

4.2.4Of the 41 groups of 7 words, three were divisible by 13. (Three out of 41 matches the mathematical odds.)

Group 8: 1794 = 2 x 3 x 13 x 23.
Group 12: 2379 = 3 x 13 x 61.
Group 38: 1404 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 13.

The sum of these groups: 5577 = 3 x 11 x 13 x 13. (An extra 13 appears.) (The group numbers in each set have no feature, but there is a curious coincidence when they are put together: 115 = 5 x 23.)

4.2.5Of the 41 groups 27 had odd numbered totals:

1083 1913 2173 2583 1451 1229 1035 2379 1511 2479 653 1945 
3201 2049 2695 981 3027 1293 2227 1751 1031 1223 2861 1877 
2123 2721 1137

Total of these groups: 50631 = 3 x 7 x 2411.

4.2.5.1The 27 can be further grouped into sets of 3 each:

1083 1913 2173 = 5169 = 3 x 1723
2583 1451 1229 = 5263 = 19 x 277
1035 2379 1511 = 4925 = 5 x 5 x 197
2479 653 1945 = 5077 = 5077
3201 2049 2695 = 7945 = 5 x 7 x 227
981 3027 1293 = 5301 = 3 x 3 x 19 x 31
2227 1751 1031 = 5009 = 5009
1223 2861 1877 = 5961 = 3 x 1987
2123 2721 1137 = 5981 = 5981

Only the middle triplet is divisible by 7.

4.2.6Of the 41 groups 14 had even numbered totals:

1886 2556 1794 1450 1406 2854 2120 2374 818 604 1876 
1266 1404 2540

Total of the even numbered groups: 24948 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 11.

4.2.6.1The 14 can be further grouped into sets of 2 each:

1886 2556 = 4442 = 2 x 2221
1794 1450 = 3244 = 2 x 2 x 811
1406 2854 = 4260 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 71
2120 2374 = 4494 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 107
818 604 = 1422 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 79
1876 1266 = 3142 = 2 x 1571
1404 2540 = 3944 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 17 x 29

Once again only the middle pair is divisible by 7.

5.Every 13th letter: 6685 = 5 x 7 x 191. SF: 203 = 7 x 29.

God’s handiwork in Genesis 10 can clearly be seen. These nations, tribes, and languages all came from the sons of Noah. And of these nations only Egypt remains, a shadow of its former self so different it could be termed a different nation or people. The numbers for Genesis 10 emphasize the fate of all nations:

Behold, is it not from the lord of hosts that peoples labor only for fire, and nations weary themselves for nought? (Habakkuk 2:13)
Therefore wait for me, says the lord, for the day when I arise as a witness. For my decision is to gather nations, to assemble kingdoms, to pour out upon them my indignation, all the heat of my anger; for in the fire of my jealous wrath all the earth shall be consumed. (Zephaniah 3:8)

Conclusion

These verses show the design of the past and future. God is the architect. Any person or nation who rejects the lord, or chooses another or even depends on anything else will be swept aside. God determines the rise and fall of nations.
