Bible Numbers 2.0

The Proclamation's Complexity

In this section, we will delve deeply into The Proclamation to show how

God Describes
His Character And Nature
In Numbers Numerics Gematria

Some of what is presented will be repeated from the previous page, but that is because the results are re-used to find new features.

FIRST LOOKS

1.The numeric total of the passage is 6174 (2 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 7 x 7). There are three factors of 7 (a 1 in 343 chance).

1.1The factors could have been rearranged into just two factors by grouping the sevens together. 343 x 18 or 686 x 9. The 343 and 686 are symmetrical. The same digit is first and last, symbolizing the unchanging God who is, was and is to come who is also beginning and end. All this ties in with Revelation 1:8. In the first case, the first two digits (3 and 4) and the last two digits (4 and 3) both add up to 7. In the second case, the first two digits of 686 and the last two digits both add up to 14 (7 x 2).

1.2The place values total 1269 (3 x 3 x 3 x 47). This is not divisible by 7, but the sum of the factors (henceforth abbreviated as SF) is 56 (7 x 2 x 2 x 2 and again SF:13). 1269's chain of factors ends with 13, a factor of the Divine Name.

1.3The sum in 1.2 could also have been rewritten into another symmetrical factor: 141 x 9. Symmetrical factors pop up throughout the proof. The first and second digits don't add up to a multiple of 7, but we do see the 1 God at the beginning and end of the number.

1.4There are no features with the first word (Alpha): 317. This is a prime number. The last word (Omega) has a total of 322 (2 x 7 x 23), matching the reason given previously in Revelation 1:8.

Just a cursory glance at the numbers reveals only a few results. But there is much more than meets the eye. To find real spectacular numeric results, we examine Revelation 1:8 phrase by phrase for possible instructions and help.

I AM

2.We begin with the very beginning of Revelation 1:8. In Exodus 3:14 God said, I am that I am. I am indicates He is in the present, the God of each instance in time. The present is measured by going through it. This is the reason behind feature 1. Adding up the letters is the first rule for discovering numeric features.

Revelation 1:8 has two forms of the present tense: I am and is. The numbers Numerics Gematria in Exodus also has two ways of demonstrating God being continually present.

2.1To see this principle in Exodus, we begin with the very first letter and take every other letter after. This would be all the letters in odd positions.

6 100 1 5 5 5 5 30 8 40 8 6 1 20 80 40 200 8 4 1 400 90 8 4 1 80 40 300 
70 50 80 70 8 1 6 100 30 10 100 80 4 6 1 6 70 2 10 6 30 50 2 10 70 300
300 40 70 200 70 40

Sum of the letters: 3388 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 11 x 11. (To see how deep and complex this balance of odd and even can be, click the button: .)

The odd positioned letters can be divided into groups of four. There would be six groups that are odd valued, which together are divisible by seven, and nine groups that are even valued which together are divisible by seven.

Odd valued groups of 4:

5 5 5 30 1 20 80 40 200 8 4 1 1 80 40 300 8 1 6 100 4 6 1 6

Total: 952 = 23 x 7 x 17.

The first half of this list:

5 5 5 30 1 20 80 40 200 8 4 1

Total: 399 = 3 x 7 x 19.

The last half of this list:

1 80 40 300 8 1 6 100 4 6 1 6

Odd positioned groups of 3:

6 100 1 8 6 400 2 10 6

Total: 539 = 72 x 11.

Odd positioned groups of 1:

Even positioned groups of 6:

70 30 10 10 70 300

Total: 490 = 2 x 5 x 72 SF: 21 = 3 x 7.

The odd positioned letters can also be divided into groups of ten. There would be four groups that are odd valued and two groups that are even valued.

Odd valued segments of 10:

6 100 1 5 5 5 5 30 8 40 400 90 8 4 1 80 40 300 70 50 80 70 8 1

Total: 1470 = 2 x 3 x 5 x 72.

Odd positioned:

8 1 80 200 4 2 70 300 70 70

Total: 805 = 5 x 7 x 23. SF: 35 = 5 x 7.

Even positioned:

6 20 40 8 1 10 300 40 200 40

Total: 665 = 5 x 7 x 19.

Two of the factors are symmetrical 11's, pointing to the one God at the beginning and at the end. These factors could also have been written as 121 x 28 (a second symmetrical number).

The sum of the factors is also symmetrical: 33 (coincidentally equal to the number of words in the passage).

2.1.1Now we take all the odd positioned letters found, and use them as positions again to find more letters.

a)  Letters as positions      b)  New letters found

a)  6  100 1 5 5 5 5 30 8 40 8 6  1 20 80  40 200 8 4   1 400 90 8
b)  10 10  6 1 1 1 1 10 6 40 6 10 6 6  100 40 4   6 200 6 90  30 6

a)  4   1 80  40 300 70 50 80  70 8 1 6  100 30 10 100 80  4   6
b)  200 6 100 40 300 50 30 100 50 6 6 10 10  10 10 10  100 200 10

a)  1 6  70 2  10 6  30 50 2  10 70 300 300 40 70 200 70 40
b)  6 10 50 10 10 10 10 30 10 10 50 300 300 40 50 4   50 40

Total: 2834 = 2 x 13 x 109.

Although no factor of 7 was found, there is 13 pointing back to the Divine Name.

2.1.2Using the odd positioned letters to count through the letters:

a)  Odd positioned letters counting through passage's letter positions.
b)  Adjusted to a letter position.
c)  Letter found.

a)  6  106 107 112 117 122 8 38 46 86 94 100 101 121 82 122 203 92 96 97
b)  6  106 107 112 117 3   8 38 46 86 94 100 101 2   82 3   84  92 96 97
c)  10 30  300 6   70  100 6 6  60 2  40 10  2   10  70 100 50  50 70 30

c)  8   40  40  200 1 1  10  5   40  6  10  10  30  300 200 70  5   8  70

a)  197 82 88  89 95 165 48 58 64 94 144 27 37 107 407 350 152 103 303 135

a)  56
b)  56
c)  1

Total: 3549 = 3 x 7 x 13 x 13.

2.2But God is not just God every odd second. He is God every even second. Since the entire passage (6174) is divisible by 7, and all the letters in odd positions are also divisible by 7 (3388), this means all even positioned letters are also divisible by 7. Together, all this shows God is eternally present.

Even positioned letters:
10 200 10 6 10 6 1 200 6 6 50 50 200 1 10 6 2 60 6 40 50 200 60 30 30
10 50 1 6 6 300 6 9 5 50 5 1 50 5 100 70 50 2 400 30 50 40 70 2 10 50 
40 30 30 10 6 30 2 10

6174 - 3388 = 2786 (199 x 7 x 2).

There are 59 letters in the even positions of the passage. This is a prime number and cannot be subdivided into equal groups. Dividing the list further into odd and even positions produces nothing. However, grouping the letters by odd and even values produces something.

Odd valued letters:

1 1 1 9 5 5 1 5

Total: 28 = 22 x 7.

Even valued letters:

10 200 10 6 10 6 200 6 6 50 50 200 10 6 2 60 6 40 50 200 60 30
30 10 50 6 6 300 6 50 50 100 70 50 2 400 30 50 40 70 2 10 50 40 30
30 10 6 30 2 10

Total: 2758 = 2 x 7 x 197.

Unlike the odd positioned letters, this goes no further.

2.2.1The sum of the factors is 208. And by chance(?) 208 = 13 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2. 13 is a factor of the Divine Name in Hebrew. Thus the number 208 points back to God.

2.2.2The sum of 208's factors is 21, which again just happens to be divisible by 7. This too leads us back to God.

2.2.3Going further, with the sum of 21's factors, which is 10 (the first letter of the Divine Name), we factor it into 5 x 2. 5 + 2 = 7.

(When the techniques in 2.1 are applied to all the even positioned letters of the passage, they do not yield any feature of 7 or 13. Why? Although the same God is present at each moment, we cannot expect everything else to be exactly the same. The same idea applies to the numbers Numerics Gematria. The second reason is that using the results to find more features is one level removed from using the rule itself. It should not be expected that moving away from the rule should work as well as the rule itself.)

2.3.1.1The rule I am can be combined with the principle beginning and end (see below). The letter after the beginning of each word is a new beginning (i.e. each instant is a new beginning). Add up the second letters of each word (in some cases this would be the last letter):

10 5 5 30 8 8 200 80 200 60 1 90 60 1 300 6 80 8 50 1 50 100 6 2
30 50 70 50 50 30 30 70 2

The sum is: 1743 = 83 x 7 x 3.

2.3.1.2As noted above, sometimes the second letter is the last letter of the word. These letters could be eliminated on the principle that they belong to the last letter of the word. The list changes only slightly:

10 5 5 8 8 200 80 200 60 1 90 60 1 300 6 80 8 50 50 100 6 2 50 70 
50 50 30 70 2

The sum is: 1652 = 59 x 7 x 2 x 2. The sum of the factors is 70 (7 x 5 x 2), and these factors add up again to 14 (7 x 2).

2.3.2The second letter of each word can be used as positions to find a second set of letters.

a) Second letter of each word.       b) Letter as a position.
c) Letter found.

a) 10  5  5  30  8  8  200  80  200  60  1  90  60  1  300  6  80  8  50  
b) 10  5  5  30  8  8  81   80  81   60  1  90  60  1  62   6  80  8  50  
c) 10  1  1  10  6  6  4    100 4    6   6  30  6   6  300  10 100 6  30

(What about the third letter of each word? Does this continue into a grand pattern? Unfortunately, it does not. One explanation is that this pattern cannot be extended since the shortest word in the passage consists of 2 letters. Four words in the passage have no third letter. There is another explanation. These features are part of another principle from Revelation 1:8 [see below].)

2.4The opposites of first and last combined give rise to the idea of interchanging the two. The letters that were first, are now last, and the letters that were last are now first. Mathematically, nothing else changes. But if we shift all the letters forward by one position, and move the first letter to the last position, this is entirely different. The first letter is now the last letter, and the second letter of each word is now the first letter.

2.4.1First shift.

New first letters of each word (2nd letter of each word):
10 5 5 30 8 8 200 80 200 60 1 90 60 1 300 6 80 8 50 1 50 100 6 2 30 50 70
50 50 30 30 70 2

Total of the first letters of each word: 1743 = 3 x 7 x 83.

New last letters of each word (1st letter of each word):
6 10 10 1 200 6 1 1 6 8 6 50 8 30 50 70 6 6 6 30 10 80 70 1 70 2 6 2 2 70
300 6 200

Total of the last letters of each word: 1330 = 2 x 5 x 7 x 19.

New alpha and omega together: 3073 = 7 x 439.

2.4.2Shift everything a second time.

New first letters of each word (3rd letter of each word):
100 6 6 1 6 50 20 10 2 4 40 200 4 30 1 50 300 9 100 30 100 4 50 6 70 10 30
10 10 70 300 30 70

Now the total of the first letters of each word is 1729 = 7 x 13 x 19.

New last letters of each word (2nd letter of each word):
10 5 5 30 8 8 200 80 200 60 1 90 60 1 300 6 80 8 50 1 50 100 6 2 30 50 70
50 50 30 30 70 2

And the total of the last letters of each word: 1743 = 3 x 7 x 83.

New alpha and omega together: 3472 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 31.

2.4.2Shift everything a second time.

New first letters of each word (3rd letter of each word):
100 6 6 1 6 50 20 10 2 4 40 200 4 30 1 50 300 9 100 30 100 4 50 6 70
10 30 10 10 70 300 30 70

Now the total of the first letters of each word is 1729 = 7 x 13 x 19.

New last letters of each word (2nd letter of each word):
10 5 5 30 8 8 200 80 200 60 1 90 60 1 300 6 80 8 50 1 50 100 6 2 30 
50 70 50 50 30 30 70 2

And the total of the last letters of each word: 1743 = 3 x 7 x 83.

New alpha and omega together: 3472 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 31.

ALPHA & OMEGA I am the Alpha and the Omega...

Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. The Hebrew equivalent of Alpha is clearly Aleph, but there is no equivalent for Omega. If Alpha and Omega are applied to the Hebrew, this phrase in Revelation must refer just to the alphabet. According to alphabets, the Hebrew equivalent of Alpha and Omega is Aleph and Tav. This establishes the second rule of what to look for in Exodus 34:6-7. We look for Aleph, and Tav. And since we are using the concept of alphabets (not numbers), we are not at this point interested in the values associated with these two letters. We look for their placement within Exodus 34:6-7.

3.1Aleph appears in these letter positions: 5 14 25 28 39 49 56 67 74 85. The sum of these positions is 442 (17 x 13 x 2). The factor of the Divine Name appears instantly.

3.2 Letter Tav appears in these words: 11 24. The sum is 35 (7 x 5).

Someone might ask, Why do you look at the letter positions, and then at the word positions? Shouldn't you be consistent? Aren't you doing this because you couldn't find the same result of 13 or 7 in both cases? In most numeric studies, there would be no answer. In this study there is a perfect reason for the difference. Alpha and Omega are two different letters. They are at opposite ends of the alphabet. There is no reason to say they should yield the exact same type of result. That they point to God (13) through the letters, or to His perfect number (7) via the words is significant. The entire purpose of an alphabet is letters and words, so either result is reasonable.

3.3 Having looked at the first and last letters separately, now consider the word and. God is Alpha And Omega. The letters Aleph and Tav reside together (and), or meet only in the eleventh and twenty-fourth words. And coincidentally, 11 + 24 = 35. 35 = 7 x 5. SF:12 = 3 x 2 x 2. SF:7. The end result is another seven.

3.4 The positions of the letters in the 11th and 24th words where Aleph and Tav meet:

11th word       38 39 40 41
24th word       85 86 87 88

The sum of the positions is 504 = 7 x 3 x 3 x 2 x 2 x 2.

3.5 The 11th and 24th words are the only two that have Aleph and Tav together. However, if we expand our search to words containing one and or the other we discover another result. The following words have one or both of the letters: 1 4 7 8 11 14 15 18 20 24. These word positions have no feature, but their word sums do. The total of these words is: 2158 = 2 x 13 x 83 SF: 98 = 2 x 7 x 7.

3.6 Here we combine Alpha & Omega with First & Last. Aleph first appears in the first word, the sum of which is 317. Tav first appears in the eleventh word, valued at 447. Aleph last appears in the 24th word, whose sum is 409. And Tav also last appears in the 24th word: 409.

The sum of these four words:
317 + 447 + 409 + 409 = 1582 = 113 x 7 x 2
SF:122 = 61 x 2          SF:63 = 7 x 3 x 3           SF:13

4. In this section Alpha and Omega referred to the first and last letters of the Hebrew alphabet. If we bend the rule, they could refer to the first and last letters of the passage: 6 and 40.

4.1 The letter 6 appears in positions: 1 8 12 18 20 23 32 38 58 60 64 69 83 87 95 112, and the sum of the positions is 780 (13 x 5 x 3 x 2 x 2). The letter 40 appears in positions: 19 31 40 53 94 104 111 119, and the sum is 571. The positions together: 780 + 571 = 1351 = 7 x 193.

Aleph had a numeric feature in its letter positions (see 3.1), just like letter 6. However, letter 40 does not have a corresponding feature like Tav (see 3.2). Why? Aleph and Tav can stand alone because they refer to letters of the Hebrew alphabet, and letters of the alphabet can stand by themselves. Letters 6 and 40 must stand together because their only relation is that they are part of the same verse (Exodus 34:6-7).

4.2Words containing the letters 6 and or 40:

a)  Word position         b)  Word sum

a) 1   2  3  5   6   8   9   11  14  16  17  18  19  23  24  26  27  29  
b) 317 26 26 254 120 131 208 447 191 126 456 29  161 126 409 102 106 102 

a) 31  32  33  
b) 680 106 322 

4.2.1Total of words: 4445 (5 x 7 x 127).

4.2.2There are 21 words (7 x 3).

4.2.3Twelve words do not have either letter 6 or letter 40. These remaining words have the sum 1729 (6174 - 4445). And 1729 = 19 x 13 x 7. The sum of 1729’s factors is 39, which is again divisible by 13.

4.3 These two letters (first and last) meet or are adjacent to each other in the following positions: 19 & 20, 31 & 32, 111 & 112. The sum of these positions is 325 = 5 x 5 x 13.

4.4 We apply the technique in 2.1 (I Am, present tense) to the results in 4.2 (Alpha & Omega). Beginning with the first item in the list above, and taking every other:

317 26 120 208 191 456 161 409 106 680 322

4.4.1There are 11 words (one God at the beginning and end).

4.4.2Total of the words: 2996 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 107.

4.4.3This means the remaining words are also divisible by 7:
4445 - 2996 = 1449 = 3 x 3 x 7 x 23.

4.5 Finally, the letters 6 and 40 may also be taken together. Their sum is 46.

4.5.1The sum of all letters, from 1 to 46: 2261 (7 x 17 x 19).

4.5.2The sum of all letters, from 47 to the end: 3913 (7 x 13 x 43, SF:68 = 7 x 3 x 3, SF:13).

5.What else might Alpha and Omega refer to? Since this is about God, it could refer to the Divine Name. The first and last letters of the Divine Name are 10 and 5.

5.1Words containing both letters 10 and 5:

       Word position: 2  3  21
       Word sum:      26 26 165

5.1.1The sum of the word positions: 26 (2 x 13).

5.1.2Total of the word sums: 217 (7 x 31).

5.1.3Words that do not have letters 10 and 5: 6174 - 217 = 5957 = 7 x 23 x 37.

5.1.4Words containing one or more of the two letters:

       Word position:  1   2  3  8   14  18 19  21  26  28 29  31  33  
       Word sum:       317 26 26 131 191 29 161 165 102 62 102 680 322

The sum of the word positions yield no features. Nevertheless, there are 13 words with one or more of the two letters.

5.1.5Total of the word sums: 2314 (2 x 13 x 89 SF:104 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 13).

5.1.6Letter 5 appears in these positions: 7 9 11 13 68 72 78. Letter 10 appears here: 2 6 10 30 52 75 93 100 103 110 118. Sum of the letter positions: 957 = 3 x 11 x 29.

5.1.7Letter 5 appears in these words: 2 2 3 3 18 19 21. Letter 10 appears here: 1 2 3 8 14 21 26 28 29 31 33. Sum of the word positions: 264 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 11.

There are no features of 7 or 13, but we do see the number 11 signifying the one God from the beginning to the end.

5.2 The Divine Name consists of four letters (10-5-6-5). The above feature looked at its first and last letters. What about the two middle letters 5 and 6? We search for all words containing the letters 5 and 6.

5.2.1 Words containing only one of the letters:

Words positions: 1   2  3  5   6   9   11  16  17  18 19  21  
Word sums:       317 26 26 254 120 208 447 126 456 29 161 165 

23  24  27  32  
126 409 106 106

The total of the positions points back to the Divine Name: 234 (2 x 3 x 3 x 13).

5.2.2Words containing both letters:

Word position: 2  3  18 19 
Word sum:      26 26 29 161

The total of the positions points to God's perfection: 42 (2 x 3 x 7). The sum of the words show God beginning and end: 242 (2 x 11 x 11).

Notice how the further the rule Alpha & Omega is bent, the fewer the numeric features, even when we appeal to another rule, or use the Divine Name. If everything was due to random odds, this would not be so. The results confirm numeric features are to be found by following Revelation 1:8’s instructions.

6.Finally, Alpha & Omega could refer to the first and last words of the passage. These two words have the numeric sums of 317 and 322. Only a difference of five separates the two numbers.

6.1From the beginning, taking every fifth word after the first word:

Word position: 6   11  16
Word sum:      120 447 126

The sum is 693 (11 x 7 x 3 x 3).

6.2From the end, take every fifth word before the last word:

Word position: 28 23  18
Word sum:      62 126 29

The sum is 217 (7 x 31).

Why stop only with three words from the beginning or end? Because the two lists will overlap and interlace if they are continued. The beginning is no longer the beginning once it passes the midway point.

6.3The sum of these two lists is 910 (2 x 5 x 7 x 13). God’s number appears.

THE BEGINNING AND THE END

Moving to the next part of Revelation 1:8, we apply the beginning & end to God's proclamation.

7....the beginning and the end...
This points to the beginning and end of each word. Take the first (a) and last (b) letters of each word.

a)  6 10 10 1  200 6  1  1  6 8 6   50  8 30 50 70 6  6 6 30 10 80 70 
b)  1 5  5  30 40  50 20 40 2 4 400 200 4 40 1  50 70 5 5 1  5  4  50 

a)  1   70 2  6  2  2  70 300 6  200 
b)  400 30 40 30 10 40 30 40  30 40

The grand total of these 66 letters is 3052 (2 x 2 x 7 x 109).

7.13052 can be used to count through the 119 letters 25 times. On the final 26th time, it will land in letter position 77 (two digits of 7). The letter in the 77th position is 100. 100 = 5 x 5 x 2 x 2. (The sum of these factors is 14 = 7 x 2.)

7.1.13052 can be used to count through the 33 words 92 times. On the final 93rd time, it will land on the 16th word. This word has a sum of 126 (7 x 3 x 3 x 2).

7.1.2 The factors of 3052 point out these letter positions (a) and letter values (b):

a)  2  2  7 109
b)  10 10 5 300

And the sum of these letters is 325 = 13 x 5 x 5. (Aside from the zero in 3052, all the same digits are in 325.)

7.1.3325 as a word position is 28 (a number divisible by 7), and the word sum here is 62. (325 as a letter position is 87 with no features.)

7.1.4The factors of 325 as letter positions:.

Letter position: 13 5 5,
Letter value:    5  1 1 = 7

7.1.5First and last letters of each word, when added together form 33 sums that can used to count through the words.

Thirty-three sums.
7 15 15 31 240 56 21 41 8 12 406 250 12 70 51 120 76 11 11 31 15 84 120
401 100 42 36 12 42 100 340 36 240

a) First and last letter added		b) Word count
c) Adjusted count			c) Word found

a) 7   15  15  31  240  56  21  41  8   12  406  250  12  70  51  120  
b) 7   22  37  35  242  67  22  63  38  17  423  277  25  95  80  134  
c) 7   22  4   2   11   1   22  30  5   17  27   13   25  29  14  2    
d) 221 184 31  26  447  317 184 100 254 456 106  72   100 102 191 26   

a) 76  11  11  31  15  84  120  401  100  42  36  12  42  100  340  36  
b) 78  23  34  32  47  98  152  421  125  68  38  17  59  126  367  40  
c) 12  23  1   32  14  32  20   25   26   2   5   17  26  27   4    7   
d) 340 126 317 106 191 106 31   100  102  26  254 456 102 106  31   221 

a) 240  
b) 247  
c) 16   
d) 126  

Total: 5558 = 2 x 7 x 397. SF: 406 = 2 x 7 x 29.

7.2The statement above has two parts. Examining just the first part: ...I am the beginning... The first letter of each word:

6 10 10 1 200 6 1 1 6 8 6 50 8 30 50 70 6 6 6 30 10 80
70 1 70 2 6 2 2 70 300 6 200.

Sum of the letters: 1330 = 19 x 7 x 5 x 2
SF:33 (number of words in this passage)[note 1]

7.2.1Eight of the letters above are also in positions divisible by 7:

Position: 14 28 35 42 91 98 105 112
Letter:   1  1  8  50 2  2  70  6

The sum of the positions 525 (7 x 5 x 5 x 3), is naturally divisible by 7, but it's symmetry is unique. The first two digits add up to seven, and the last two digits also add up to 7.

7.2.2The sum of the letters is 140 (2 x 2 x 5 x 7).

7.2.3The factors of 1330 lead to a second level of features when used as letter positions.

Factors as positions:    19 7 5 2
Letters found:           40 5 1 10      

Sum of letters: 56 = 7 x 2 x 2 x 2.

7.2.4The factors of 56 reveals a third feature.

Factors as positions: 7  2  2  2
Letters found:        5 10 10 10

Sum of letters: 35 = 7 x 5.

It would be nice if this pattern continued, but it does not. Since Revelation 1:8 lists only three cycles Alpha, Beginning and First, perhaps the number Numerics Gematria features only go three levels. And of course, the deeper the search runs, the further we depart from the original rule.

7.2.5The first letter of each word used to count words:

a) First letter of each word	b) Word count
c) Adjusted count		d) Word found

a) 6   10  10  1   200  6   1  1  6   8   6   50  8   30  50  70   6   
b) 6   16  26  27  227  35  3  4  10  18  24  74  16  46  63  100  7   
c) 6   16  26  27  29   2   3  4  10  18  24  8   16  13  30  1    7   
d) 120 126 102 106 102  26  26 31 72  29  409 131 126 72  100 317  221 

a) 6   6   30  10  80   70  1   70  2   6   2   2   70  300  6   200  
b) 13  19  49  26  106  77  12  82  18  24  26  28  98  332  8   208  
c) 13  19  16  26  7    11  12  16  18  24  26  28  32  2    8   10   
d) 72  161 126 102 221  447 340 126 29  409 102 62  106 26   131 72   

Total: 4648 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 83.

7.3And we can take the second part by itself: ...and the end... The last letter of each word:

1 5 5 30 40 50 20 40 2 4 400 200 4 40 1 50 70 5 5 1 5 4 50 400
30 40 30 10 40 30 40 30 40

Sum of letters: 1722 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 41.

7.3.1Four of the letters above are also in positions divisible by 7:

Position: 56 63 84 119
Letter:   1  70 50 40

Unlike 6.2.1, the sum of the positions, 322 (23 x 7 x 2) has no symmetry. The sum of the letters is 161 (23 x 7), exactly half the sum of the positions. And here symmetry reappears.

7.3.2The last letters of each word used to count words:

a) Last letter of each word	b) Word count
c) Adjusted count		d) Word found

a) 1   5   5   30  40  50  20  40  2   4   400  200  4   40  1   50  70  
b) 1   6   11  41  48  65  52  59  28  32  432  203  9   49  17  67  71  
c) 1   6   11  8   15  32  19  26  28  32  3    5    9   16  17  1   5   
d) 317 120 447 131 351 106 161 102 62  106 26   254  208 126 456 317 254

(Why do the results for the end not follow the same pattern of the beginning? Because the beginning is never exactly the same as the ending. Thus the numbers need not follow the same pattern.)

7.4The features above utilized the first and last letters of each word separately. Since Revelation 1:8 reads Beginning and end, the first and last letters can also be used together.

The letters found are not necessarily the first or last letters of words. It was not expected that they would stand up alone, and they do not.

7.4.1Using the results together: 874 + 1303 = 2177 = 7 x 311.

7.4.2Using the first letters of each word to count letter positions.

Now we do the same for the last letter of each word.

 a)  Last letter of each word.
 b)  Counting with the last letters of each word.

Total: 1455 = 3 x 5 x 97 .

Adding up the results: 1394 + 1455 = 2849 = 7 x 11 x 37.

7.5All the features above use the first and last letters of each word along with addition to point to other letters. Subtraction uses the first and last letters of each word to point to words.

Sum of the first letters of each word:  1330
Sum of the last letters of each word:   1722
Absolute value of the difference:        392 = 7 x 7 x 2 x 2 x 2

392 is divisible by 7, but this is not significant since 1330 and 1722 both are already divisible by 7. What is significant is the extra factor of 7, and the three 2s match the layout of Revelation 1:8. What is significant is 392's factors. They point to several other features.

7.5.1The factors of 392 as word positions:

Factors:     7   7   2  2  2
Words found: 221 221 26 26 26

Sum of words found: 520 = 13 x 5 x 2 x 2 x 2.

7.5.2The factors of 392 can be used to count through the words.

Word position: 2  4  6   13 20
Word found:    26 31 120 72 31

Total of words found: 280 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 7.

7.5.3The factors of 392 can be arranged in other ways.

From greatest to least: 7   7   2   2  2

The factors of 392 can be arranged in ten different ways. Seven of them produce results. Three of them produce a factor of 7, and four of them produce a factor of 13 (the factor of the Tetragrammaton).

7.5.8The factors of 392 (2, 2, 2, 7, and 7) can be arranged in the several ways (51234 41235 41325 42135 42315 43125 43215 51324 52134 52314 53124 53214 [where the numbers 1, 2 and 3 represent each of the three factors of two, and the numbers 4 and 5 represent the two sevens]) to count through the words and letters. No result is obtained from counting through the words, but the twelve sequences counting through the letters all produce the same total: 26 (2 x 13).

7.5.9.1The totals of the first and last letters of each word, their difference, and their sum (four numbers) can all be used together in a different way.

       The factors as     Total of
     letter positions     letters
                          found
1330 = 19 x 7 x 5 x 2
       40   5   1   10    = 56

1722 = 41 x 7 x 3 x 2
       400  5   100 10    = 515

 392 = 7 x 7 x 2 x 2 x 2
       5   5   10  10  10 = 40

3052 = 109 x 7 x 2 x 2
       300   5   10  10   = 325

Grand total: 56 + 515 + 40 + 325 = 936 (13 x 3 x 3 x 2 x 2 x 2 SF:25 = 5 x 5 SF:10 = 5 x 2 SF:7). This same total previously appeared in feature 7.5.6, but from an entirely different calculation.

7.5.9.2The four used directly as word positions:

1330 1722 392 3052
10   6    29  16
72   120  102 126

Total: 420 = 7 x 5 x 3 x 2 x 2. 420 also appeared above in feature 7.5.5.

7.5.9.3The four directly as letter positions:

1330 1722 392 3052
21   56   35  77
8    1    8   100

Total: 117 = 13 x 3 x 3.

7.6The positions of the first and last letters of each word can also be multiplied together, producing another level of letter positions.

a)  position of first letter in word.
b)  position of last letter.
c)  product of first and last positions.
d)  product adjusted to a letter position.
e)  new letter found in product position.

7.6.1The total of all the first and last letter positions multiplied together (sum of line c): 160223 = 7 x 47 x 487.

7.6.2The total of all the letters found when the product of the first and last letter positions is used as a new position (sum of line e): 1246 = 2 x 7 x 89 SF: 98 = 2 x 7 x 7.

7.7We have now utilized three of the four most basic math operations: addition, subtraction, and multiplication. What about division?

The greater letter is divided by the lesser. Since the Exodus verse has no fractions, we only use whole numbers.

a) First letter of word.
b) Last letter of word.
c) The greater of a) or b) divided by the lesser.
d) Letter found when c) is used as a position.

Total of letters: 644 = 2 x 2 x 7 x 23.

The four basic math operations all produce numeric features with the beginning and end letters of each word. Each mathematical operation is different, just as the beginning and end are different. And so also are the techniques used for each. Some point to letters, and some to words.

The features above may not have exhausted all the possibilities of THE BEGINNING AND THE END, but they show how extensive just one principle from Revelation 1:8 can be.

8.The preceding feature used results (the factors) from the rules of Revelation 1:8 to derive new features. There is a major factor not included in feature 7. This is the factor 1. (See Appendix, and also note 2) The number 1 represents the one God. The number 1 brings all numbers greater than six back to the number 7. This factor can be applied to many of the previous results.

From feature 2.1 (I AM), the sum of the odd positioned letters is 3388.

3388 = 1 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 11 x 11

Add up the factors of 3388 and factor the resulting sum
(again including 1 as a factor).

34 = 1 x 2 x 17

Continue with this pattern.

20 = 1 x 2 x 2 x 5
10 = 1 x 2 x 5
8 = 1 x 2 x 2 x 2

Five of the six main sums from the passage produce new letter totals divisible by 7. Only 7.5 does not yield a feature of 7 or 13. Nevertheless, the number 11 (one God, beginning and end) appears. Can all this be due to coincidence?

9.Since the entire passage is divisible by 7, and the first and last letters of each word are all divisible by 7 (see: feature 7), this automatically means what remains in the centre is also divisible by 7. This matches the phrase in Revelation is, was, and is to come. If the first letter of each word is considered the past, and the last letter of each word is considered as the future, then the letters that are neither first nor last in each word can be taken as the continuing present.

All the letters that are neither first nor last would be:

There are no features of 7 or 13, but the factor 11 points back to the one God who is at the beginning and the end of centuries and years.

10.The principle of beginning and end can also be applied to the sum of the words and the values of the letters themselves!

10.1.1Add up the first and last digits of the word sums.

10.1.2In feature 2.3, the sum of the second letters of each word is divisible by seven. The principle of each instant as a new beginning can also be applied to the digits of word sums. In this case, the second digit of the word sum is added to the last digit. Where a word consists only of two letters, the final letter is the second and last letter. It is repeated.

 Word sum: 317 26  26  31  254 120 221 131 208 72  447 340 72

Total of the second and last digits: 217 = 7 x 31.

But why doesn't the second digit of the word sums stand on its own like the second letter of each word? The word sum is the result of many letters. Its value does not relate to the actual text like a letter. Many words can have the same value. Each letter only has one value, and thus a letter or its value can stand on its own. As a result, the second digit of the word sums requires something else.

10.2Add up the first and last digits of the letters. Where a letter value has only one digit, this is its first and last digit, and it is recorded twice.

11Four words in the passage have two letters. They have a beginning and an end, but nothing in between. Thus we look at the words in between these four words. And by wrapping around to the beginning, we can generate four segments of words bracketed by these two letter words.

11.1First segment:

 4  5   6   7   8   9   10 11  12  13 14  15  16  17  18 19  20
 31 254 120 221 131 208 72 447 340 72 191 351 126 456 29 161 31

11.1.1The sum of the words, including the two letter words: 3241 = 7 x 463. [See feature 126.2.4 for another reason for this.]

11.1.2Excluding the two letter words: 3241 - 62 = 3179 = 11 x 17 x 17 SF:45 = 3 x 3 x 5 SF:11. There are no sevens or thirteens here, but the number 11 appears. The factors form a chain also leading back to 11, the one God beginning and end.

11.2Second segment:

 20 21  22  23  24  25
 31 165 184 126 409 100

11.2.1The sum of the segment, including the two letter words: 1015 = 5 x 7 x 29.

11.2.2Excluding the two letter words: 1015 - 131 = 884 = 2 x 2 x 13 x 17. The factor of the Divine Name appears.

11.3Third segment:

 25  26  27  28 29  30
 100 102 106 62 102 100

Segment sum, including the two letter words: 572 = 2 x 2 x 11 x 13. The divine factor appears along with the number 11 for the one God beginning and end. The chain of factors also ends with the one alpha and omega: 28 = 2 x 2 x 7 SF: 11

11.4Fourth segment:

 30  31  32  33  1   2  3  4
 100 680 106 322 317 26 26 31

Segment sum including the two letters words: 1608 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 67. There appears to be nothing here, but... Excluding the two letter words:
1608 - 131 = 1477 = 7 x 211.

Why would the last segment not have a feature immediately visible? It is because the segment wraps around to the beginning of the passage. It is unique among the four segments.

12.The previous features focus attention on specific points in the declaration. But God is not just focused on specific points. He goes beyond the beginning and end. The beginning letter of each word can sometimes be found in the next word (i.e. the word to come). The end letter of each word can at times be found in the previous word (i.e. the word that was). This also produces numeric features.

(Example: The first letter of the first word is 6. If the letter 6 is found in the next word, record the letter found, and its position in the passage. If the letter 6 appears twice in the next word, take the second appearance. Repeat for each of the 33 words.

Take the last letter of the first word: 1. Record it, and its position if it is found in the previous word. If the letter 1 appears twice in the previous word, record the position farthest away.)

a) Word position where letter was found.
b) Sum of word where letter was found.
c) Position of letter found.
d) Letter.

Out of eight sums, three are divisible by 7, and one is divisible by 13. One of the sums is divisible by 7 three times! It is highly unlikely this is simply coincidence. God planned the choice of the words after each one, and also the words before, ensuring the placement of the letters.

12.3This feature extends even further, illustrating that God sees deeper than just what is immediately before or after.

First letter of each word found in a word seven positions after it.

In eight line totals, two are divisible by 7. There are a total of three factors of 7.

12.4First letter of each word found in a word 13 positions after it.

a)   19  20 24  27  28 32  1   4  9     Total: 164 (2 x 2 x 41)

Last letter of each word found in a word 13 positions before it.

In this case, we find four factors of 7, less than the two previous cases, but still slightly more than the odds would indicate.

12.5First letter of each word found in a word 26 positions after it.

a) 27  28  29  32  1   2  6   11  14  16  23

And in this final try, we again find four factors of 7.

Of the five features above, four of them contain a factor of 13. The only one that doesn't is feature 12.4. Coincidentally enough, feature 12.4 consists of looking for the first or last letter in a word 13 positions away. In essence, the 13 is built into it.

It is interesting that the searches before and after a word for that particular word's first or last letter with the most factors of 7 also have the factor (or number) 13. As seen before, 1, 7, 13 and 26 are all associated with God. (When we try the above exercise for the first letter of each word in any of the other succeeding words, we find only odds.)

To summarize: there are 24 totals, of which 12 have factors of 7 (not including the totals that factor into several 7s). At the least, this is three times greater than one would expect from the odds. This shows the relationship between beginning and end along with the numbers 1, 7, 13 and 26.

13.The word at the beginning has the sum 317. The words below all have at least two of the digits of 317.

Word position: 1   4  8   15  20
Word sum:      317 31 131 351 31 = 861 = 3 x 7 x 41

The word at the end has the sum 322. The following words have at least two of the digits of 322.

Word position: 7   33 
Word sum:      221 322 = 543 = 3 x 181

First and last together: 1404 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 13. The sum of the factors is 26 (the Divine Name).

14.To see exactly how Revelation 1:8 goes with Exodus 34:6b-7, place the former over the latter.

The list below is of the (a) first and (b) last letter positions of each word in Revelation 1:8 (GNT).

a) 1 4 8 10 14 17 19 20 25 31 32 36 37 39 42 43 45 48 49 58 59
b) 3 7 9 13 16 18 19 24 30 31 35 36 38 41 42 44 47 48 57 58 69

14.1.1Applying list A as positions in Exodus 34:6b-7:

a)  Position from Rev 1:8        b)  Letter found in Exodus

a)  1 4   8 10 14 17 19 20 25 31 32 36 37 39 42 43 45 48 49 58 59
b)  6 200 6 10 1  8  40 6  1  40 6  60 4  1  50 90 8  30 1  6  50

Total of letters found: 624 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 13.

14.1.2Applying list B as positions in Exodus 34:6b-7:

a)  3   7 9 13 16  18 19 24 30 31 35 36 38 41  42 44  47 48 57 58 69
b)  100 5 5 5  200 6  40 50 10 40 8  60 6  400 50 200 4  30 70 6  6

Total of letters found: 1301 (a prime number).

At first glance, List B by itself produces no features. However combined with List A, it gives a sum divisible by 7: 624 + 1301 = 1925 (11 x 7 x 5 x 5, SF:28 = 7 x 2 x 2, SF:11).

But the result (1301) in List B is not exactly a numeric failure. 1301 is the fifth prime number to be sandwiched between a number divisible by 13, and a number divisible by 7 (1300 and 1302). It is the second prime number easily recognized as being related to 13 and when we check further, related to 7. The first prime number, is of course is 701. Note the symmetry. 701 is preceded by a number divisible by 7, and followed by a number divisible by 13. 1301 is preceded by a number divisible by 13, and followed by a number divisible by 7.

Is this all coincidence? It just so happens that 1301 as a word position in the Exodus proclamation points to the 14th word (sum of 191), and as a letter position points to the 111st letter 40. 191 plus 40 is 231 (11 x 7 x 3, SF:21 = 7 x 3, SF:10 = 5 x 2, SF:7). 1301 as a position in Revelation 1:8, points to the 10th word (sum of 60), and the 59th letter 70. 60 + 70 = 130. In summary, applying Revelation 1:8 directly to Exodus 34:6b-7 yields a result that can be re-used in both verses.

14.1.3The positions of the first letter of each word in Revelation 1:8 (List A) can actually be laid out twice upon Exodus 34:6b-7.

a) Position of first letter of each word in Revelation 1:8.
b) Position applied to Exodus 34:6-7.
c) Letter value found in Exodus.

a)                                          Pattern repeats here: 1
b)  1 4   8 10 14 17 19 20 25 31 32 36 37 39 42 43 45 48 49 58 59 60
c)  6 200 6 10 1  8  40 6  1  40 6  60 4  1  50 90 8  30 1  6  50 6

a)  4  8  10 14 17 19 20 25 31 32 36 37 39 42  43  45  48  49  58  59
b)  63 67 69 73 76 78 79 84 90 91 95 96 98 101 102 104 107 108 117 118
c)  70 1  6  30 50 5  80 50 30 2  6  70 2  2   50  40  300 30  70  10

The total is divisible by 13: 1534 (2 x 13 x 59).

14.1.4The same applies with the last letter of each word in Revelation 1:8 (List B).

a) Position of last letter of each word in Revelation 1:8.
b) Position applied to Exodus 34:6-7.
c) Letter value found in Exodus.

a)                                             Pattern repeats here: 3
b)  3   7 9 13 16  18 19 24 30 31 35 36 38 41  42 44  47 48 57 58 69 72
c)  100 5 5 5  200 6  40 50 10 40 8  60 6  400 50 200 4  30 70 6  6  5

a)  7  9  13 16 18 19  24 30  31  35  36  38  41  42  44  47  48  57  
b)  76 78 82 85 87 88  93 99  100 104 105 107 110 111 113 116 117 126 
c)  50 5  70 1  6  400 10 50  10  40  70  300 10  40  70  2   70  5   

a)  58  69
b)  127 138
c)  6   40

Again the total is divisible by 13: 2561 = 13 x 197.

14.1.5Now we see how closely Revelation 1:8 fits with God's proclamation. Features 14.1.3 and 14.1.4, (first and last) combine to produce a total divisible by 7: 1534 + 2561 = 4095 (3 x 3 x 5 x 7 x 13).

14.1.6The words of Revelation 1:8 can be applied directly to Exodus as word positions.

a)  Word sum from Revelation used as a word position in Exodus.
b)  Word found in Exodus.

a)  608 53 160 322 20 160 600 42  449 60  163 60  640 20 60  47  20
b)  191 31 62  100 31 62  120 208 31  106 680 106 72  31 106 191 31

a)  60  770 60  1142
b)  106 447 106 31

Total: 2849 = 7 x 11 x 37.

14.1.7There are two main versions of the Greek New Testament. The one associated with the King James Bible is the Textus Receptus. The main Greek text closest to the Textus Receptus is the one from Scrivener, usually indicated as GNS. The one associated with the Revised Standard Version is simply the Greek New Testament (abbreviated as GNT). The features from 13.1.1 through 13.1.6 are all based on the GNT. Can the same features be found with the GNS? Not quite.

a)  Revelation 1:8 (GNS) words applied as word positions.
b)  Word found in Exodus 34:6b-7.

a)  608 53 160 1   20 160 600 488 20 275 42  69 449 60  640 20 60  47
b)  191 31 62  317 31 62  120 102 31 447 208 26 31  106 72  31 106 191

a)  20 60  770 60  1142
b)  31 106 447 106 31

Total: 2886 = 2 x 3 x 13 x 37.

a) Revelation 1:8 (GNS) letters applied directly as letter positions.
b) Letter found in Exodus 34:6b-7.

a) 5 3   600 5 9 30 9 100 60 1 10 1 9 100 60 600 1 80  400 7 10 1 9 100
b) 1 100 1   1 5 10 5 10  6  6 10 6 5 10  6  1   6 100 90  5 10 6 5 10

a) 5 20 60 90 20 5 3   5 9 60 9 10 200 80  9 60 90 60 600 40 10 1 9 60
b) 1 6  6  30 6  1 100 1 5 6  5 10 4   100 5 6  30 6  1   40 10 6 5 6

a) 7 40 10 1 9 60 5 80  400 60 30 5 40 60 90 60 70 1 40 100 60 10 80  1
b) 5 40 10 6 5 6  1 100 90  6  10 1 40 6  30 6  50 6 40 10  6  10 100 6

a) 100 600 80
b) 10  1   100

Total: 1512 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7.

A deeper search for features with the GNS yields inconsistent results. The GNT appears to give more numeric features. Does this mean the GNS is inferior? No. The lack of features actually helps fill in the whole picture when the GNS is taken along with the GNT.

Both the word values in the GNS and GNT of Revelation 1:8 can be applied directly to Exodus. This is reinforced by the direct application of the letters from the GNS. The letters of the GNT fail, although it succeeds elsewhere with other features based on the words. All this places extra emphasis on the words. The solitary application of the GNS letters again underscores the direct use of information from Revelation 1:8. In summary, the numbers Numerics Gematria instruct us to use the words in the most straightforward way.

If we take Alpha, Omega, beginning, end, first and last as a poetic way of saying the same thing, we misconstrue the actual meaning of each individual word, and miss the numeric instructions. Manipulation of the data in Revelation 1:8 might give us more numeric features in Exodus, but this again hides the meaning of the words of Revelation. If we ignore Revelation 1:8 altogether, we can dream up any number of techniques to search for numeric features in the proclamation, but we lose sight of God's specific and unique attributes. In essence, this confirms that the strict meaning of the words of Revelation 1:8 are the basis for finding features in Exodus 34:6b-7.

14.2Returning to the GNT, of the 21 letter positions in List A, eleven also match the first letter position of a word in Exodus 34:6b-7: 1 10 14 19 20 25 31 32 37 42 45. The sum of these positions is 276.

And of the 21 letter positions in List B, fifteen match the last letter position of a word in Exodus: 9 13 16 19 24 31 35 38 41 42 44 47 48 57 69. The sum is 533 = 41 x 13.

In 14.1.1, List A produced a feature while List B did not. Here the opposite occurs, with List A featureless, and List B with a sum divisible by 13. (In this case, though, List A and List B together do not produce an additional feature.)

14.3One letter words in Revelation 1:8 are unique, since they appear in both Lists A and B: 19 31 36 42 48 58 (The sum is 234 = 13 x 3 x 3 x 2 SF:21 = 7 x 3).

14.4From List A, only three positions are divisible by 7: 14 42 49. In Exodus, these three positions point to letters 1, 50 and 1. The sum of which is 52 (13 x 2 x 2).

From List B, again only three positions are divisible by 7: 7 35 42. And in Exodus, these three point to letters 5, 8, and 50. The sum of the letters is 63 (7 x 3 x 3 SF:13).

Note the similarity between these two sets of numbers:

          28  7                28  7
 A)	|———|———|      B)    |———|———|
       14  42  49            7  35   42

In List A, the difference between 14 and 42 is 28. The same difference is found in the three numbers from List B. And in List A, the difference between 42 and 49 is 7. This too is found in List B. Revelation 1:8 and Exodus 34:6-7 are related in more than one way.

15.1.In the proclamation, the first and last letters of the first word are 6 and 1.

Four words in the passage have these two letters.

1   11  18 24      Position total: 54
317 447 29 409     Word total: 1202

The first and last letters of the last word are 200 and 40. Only two words have both letters.

5   33       Position total: 38
254 322      Word total: 576

The sum of these six words: 1202 + 576 = 1778 (2 x 7 x 127).

15.2The first and last letters of the first and last words (6 1 200 40) added up equal 247 (13 x 19).

16.This feature clearly shows how the principle of Beginning and End applies in Exodus 34:6-7.

There are two ways of reading Beginning and End. You can start from the beginning of the Exodus proclamation, or you can start from the end of Exodus. This does not mean reading Exodus in reverse with the idea of reversing the entire meaning of the proclamation. (This is not superstitious magic.) Science defines the universe in various dimensions. These dimensions are not reversible, but you can travel them in either direction. Human beings tend to function in one direction (i.e. we grow old), and we think in one direction (from start to finish). This limitation is clearly shown when the full results of our work are not what we wanted or intended.

God is not like this at all. He can start at the end, and progress towards the beginning. Seeing both at the same time in complete detail prevents unintended consequences. All His works are perfect and great.

What is very interesting is that the feature below is structured with our limitations in mind. It is very easy to just read Revelation 1:8 and actually see the principle of taking the beginning and end letters of each word. The first and last letters of each word are still last or first whether we read the proclamation from left to right, or right to left. We can't make a mistake here.

This changes when we strictly apply direction and look at the positions of the first and last letters of each word. Normally we begin at the beginning and number the letter positions from there. When we add up these positions for the first letter of each word, we don't get any numeric features. Nor do the positions of the last letter of each word produce anything. If one or both of the sums of the positions had produced anything, we would have stopped and not gone any further. In doing so, we would fail to grasp one of God’s characteristics. To obtain any result, we have to change our thinking, and change direction. When we change direction, we change how we number the letter positions.

(Skeptics naturally say, All right, the first and last letters worked out. Fine. If God had designed these verses like this, he would have ensured the positions came out with something too. Surely he's smart enough to be able to do that. But you can't find anything in the positions. This means it was all coincidence.

How wrong they are. There are features in the positions of the letters. To find them, Revelation 1:8 just has to be applied more creatively.)

16.1The table below lists the positions of the first and last letters of each word, as counted from the beginning and then as counted from the end.

Counting from the beginning
a)  position of the first letter of each word
b)  position of the last letter of each word

Counting from the end
c) position of the first letter of each word
d) position of the last letter of each word

a) 1   6   10  14  16  20  25 28 32 35 38 42 45 48 54 57 60 64 69 73
b) 5   9   13  15  19  24  27 31 34 37 41 44 47 53 56 59 63 68 72 74
c) 119 114 110 106 104 100 95 92 88 85 82 78 75 72 66 63 60 56 51 47
d) 115 111 107 105 101 96  93 89 86 83 79 76 73 67 64 61 57 52 48 46

a) 75 79 82 85 89 91 95 98  101 105 107 112 115
b) 78 81 84 88 90 94 97 100 104 106 111 114 119
c) 45 41 38 35 31 29 25 22  19  15  13  8   5
d) 42 39 36 32 30 26 23 20  16  14  9   6   1

16.1.1When counting from the beginning, the sum of the positions of the first letters of each word is 1971 (3 x 3 x 3 x 73). Also when counting from the beginning, the sum of the positions of the last letters of each word is 2057 (11 x 11 x 17). Although the positions of the first letters of each word yield nothing, the positions of the last letters produce two elevens symbolizing the one God from beginning to end. The sum of the factors of 2057 equal 39 (13 x 3), pointing to the Divine Name.

16.1.2When counting from the end, the sum of the positions of the first letters of each word is 1989 (3 x 3 x 13 x 17). And again from the end, the sum of the positions of the last letters of each word is 1903 (11 x 173). In counting from the end, both positions of first and last produce features. The positions of the first letters have the factor 13, and the positions of the last letters again have a factor of eleven.

16.1.3We look further.

Case 1.
From the beginning (first & last):
1971 + 2057 = 4028 = 2 x 2 x 19 x 53.

Case 2.
From the beginning (first), from the end (first):
1971 + 1989 = 3960 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 11.

Case 3.
From the beginning (first), from the end (last):
1971 + 1903 = 3874 = 2 x 13 x 149.

Case 4.
From the beginning (last), from the end (first):
2057 + 1989 = 4046 = 2 x 7 x 17 x 17.

Case 5.
From the beginning (last), from the end (last):
2057 + 1903 = 3960 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 11.

Cases 2 and 5 start with different numbers, but end with the same sum 3960. The 11 in 3960's factors points to the one God beginning and end. The sum of the factors is 28 (7 x 2 x 2), and the sum of the factors of 28 return to 11.

Cases 3 and 4 combine alternating beginning and end with alternating first and last. Case 3 produces a factor of 13, and case 4 produces a factor of 7. This is not coincidental. God deliberately constructed this feature so we would have to consider a different beginning (from the end) in order to find it. And at the same time, to ensure we would not mistake who arranged this, He included the first and last.

The next numeric feature reinforces this idea.

16.2The first part of Revelation 1:8 lists three characteristics that might actually be the one and same thing. To demonstrate they are different only requires a shift in thinking. Alpha and Omega are letters, and their order denotes alphabetical sequence. But it is clear no sentence or word is by itself in alphabetical order. Thus the Alpha and Omega is not the actual beginning and end, or first and last of a passage.

The original Hebrew text had no spaces between the words. Spaces were added later for readability. Spaces do not change the text, but they do change the position of the letters and words. Extra positions (spaces) make the beginning and end of a passage independent of the actual first and last letters.

This table shows the entire proclamation, but with a space inserted between each word, and spaces at the very beginning and end. These spaces are given numbered positions. Two methods of counting positions are used, one including the space before the verse, and one omitting that space. Reverse positions run beneath the letters. Everything depends on your perspective, and how you count.


a) Count includes the first space.    b) Count omits the first space.
c) Letter value
d) Reverse including last space.      e) Reverse excluding last space.

Out of twelve results, four are divisible by seven (with one result being divisible by 49). This is twice what normally would be expected if this was just due to the mathematical odds. And of these twelve results, two are divisible by 13. Slightly more than the odds.

16.3Combine the principle I AM (feature 2.1), with the table above in 16.2. I AM refers to present tense, and in feature 1.1, we saw how you could move moment by moment through the present and skip letters in the passage. The same principle is applied here. First, erase all the spaces and their corresponding positions from the table. Next, erase every second letter along with their corresponding positions.

Counting forwards, the sum of the positions is 4467 (3 x 1489), which yields no feature. The sum of the positions counting backwards is
4501 (7 x 643 SF:650 = 13 x 5 x 5 x 2).

16.4Alpha and Omega can also be applied in four different ways, depending on the direction. (For these features, we return to the original format of the numbers, without spaces between the words.)

Method 1: From the beginning of the Exodus passage, search for each letter of the Hebrew alphabet (in sequence), and note its position. If a letter of the Hebrew alphabet is not found, continue from the last position found for the next Hebrew letter.

Method 2: From the beginning of the Exodus passage, search for the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet, and work towards the beginning of the alphabet.

Method 3: From the end of the Exodus verse, search for the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet.

Method 4: From the end of the Exodus proclamation, search for the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet and work towards the beginning of the alphabet.

Method 1:

Total of positions: 1079 = 13 x 83

Method 2:

 400 300 200 100 90 80 70 60 50 40 30 20 10 9  8  6  5  4  2  1

Total of positions: 967

Method 3:

 1  2  4  5  6  8  9  10 20 30 40  50  60 70  80 90 100 200 300 400

Total of positions: 1393 = 7 x 199

Method 4:

 400 300 200 100 90 80 70  60 50 40 30 20 10 9  8  6  5  4  2  1

Total of positions: 917 = 7 x 131

Out of four results, two are divisible by seven, and one is divisible by 13.

The positions of these letters did not have numeric features before, but now they do. It's not 100% successful all the time, but the number of features is higher than the odds would suggest. It is as if God wanted us to consider a change in how we think in order to find them. And it is as if He had anticipated the addition of empty spaces to His word. Thus far, the meaning of Revelation 1:8 coincides beautifully with Exodus 34:6-7's numbers.

FIRST AND LAST

First and last are separate and distinct from beginning and end. Beginning and end referred to the beginning and end letters of each word. The word first can be taken two ways: as a number (magnitude), or as the first in appearance. The numeric features in this section look at the value of the letters, or where they appear first and last.

17.In terms of magnitude, letter values can be highest or lowest. The highest and lowest letter values of each word can be grouped together just like the beginning and end letters of each word.

(Where there is more than one letter which is highest or lowest, only the first occurrence is recorded. e.g. second word 10-5-6-5, only the first '5' is recorded.)

 a, e)  Position in word          b, f)  Passage position
    c)  Highest Letter Value         d)  Highest Place Value
    g)  Lowest Letter Value          h)  Lowest Place Value

Total of a) 71
Total of b) 2009 = 7 x 7 x 41
Total of c) 214
Total of d) 142

17.1Out of 8 sums, we would expect just one to be divisible by 7 [the odds], but we find three! And one of them is divisible by 49, which gives a total of four factors of 7.

17.2In terms of magnitude, the highest valued letter in each word (line C) plus the lowest (line E) would be equivalent to the first and last:
4189 + 214 = 4403 = 7 x 17 x 37 (each factor has the digit 7 in it).

17.3The position of the highest valued letter in each word (line B) plus the lowest (line B2): 2008 + 2009 = 4017 = 13 x 103 x 3 (three factors each have a digit 3 for the God who is, was and is to come). The sum of the factors is
119 (17 x 7) pointing to the total number of letters in the proclamation.

17.4The position within each word of the highest (line A) plus the lowest (line A2): 70 + 71 = 141. There are no factors of 7 or 13, but the sum begins with a one and ends with a one, pointing to the one God from beginning to end.

Only the place values (lines D and F) produce no features.

17.5The first and last can also be combined with the beginning and the end.

Beginning and end of line C: 200 + 200 = 400
Beginning and end of line E: 1 + 2     =   3
Total 403 = 13 x 31 (digits reversed)

The first and last of the other lines do not produce features.

17.6We try the above again, but with one difference. Where two letters equally high or low are found in a word, the second letter is recorded. Letter values, place values and the position in each word remain the same. Only the position in the passage changes [lines B and F].

b) Second position of highest value.
4 6 10 15 16 24 26 29 33 36 41 44 46 51 55 57 62 66 71 73 77 80 82 88
89 92 96 99 102 105 109 113 115
The sum is now 2012.

b2) Second passage position of lowest value.
5 9 13 14 18 23 25 28 34 37 39 42 47 49 56 58 60 67 72 74 78 81 83 85 
90 91 95 98 101 106 110 112 116
Sum is now 2016 = 7 x 3 x 3 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 (or 252 x 8).

From the highest and lowest letter values of each word, we have now generated a total of ten lines, with corresponding totals. If these were ten random totals, we would have expected one, or at most two to be divisible by 7. Instead, we find four which is twice expected odds.

17.7Revelation 1:8 indicates God has many attributes all in one. Combine the highest and lowest letter values of each word with their position within each word. The easiest way to do this would be to use the place value (the value of its position in the Hebrew alphabet), and add it to its position within the word. The highest and lowest result for each word is separated into two lists.

Highest place value + position:
24 11 11 14 21 19 22 19 22 17 26 23 17 21 23 17 24 12 22 13 22 21 17
26 17 17 18 16 17 17 24 18 21

Lowest place value + position:
6 7 7 2 9 7 2 2 5 7 3 15 7 3 4 8 7 5 7 3 9 7 8 2 14 3 7 3 3 14 14 7 4

High and low have to be combined to produce a result divisible by 7.

The numeric values of the selected letters above is listed below.

Letter value of highest place value plus position:
200 10 10 30 200 50 200 80 200 60 400 200 60 80 300 70 300 9 100 30
100 100 70 400 70 40 70 50 40 70 300 70 200

Letter value of lowest place value plus position:
1 5 5 1 6 6 1 1 2 4 1 50 4 1 1 6 6 1 6 1 5 4 6 1 30 2 6 2 2 30 30 6 2

Combining high and low in this case produces no feature. Instead, high and low individually have to move to the next level of factors to reveal anything.

The results for 17.7 are not as good as we would like, but we have to remember high and low are opposites we thought up to replace the complementary values of first/last or beginning/end as stated in Revelation 1:8. What we develop on our own, is not the same as depending on the actual text. We should not expect our efforts to equal the original.

18.Feature 17 examined the highest and lowest valued letters of each word, disregarding where these two letters might be in relation with each other. The phrase the first and the last directs us to look where these letters are next to each other. The following table lists the highest and lowest letters of each word.

a) Word position
b) Word sum
c) Position within the word of the first letter found (highest/lowest).
d) Position of this letter in the passage.
e) Value of this initial letter.
f) Position within the word of the second letter found (highest/lowest).
g) Position of second letter in the passage.
h) Second letter value.

a)  1   2  3  4  6   6   7   8   9   10 13 15  16  18 19  20

f)  4   3   2   2   2   2   2  2   2   4   2   2
g)  78  81  83  90  92  96  99 102 106 110 113 116
h)  5   4   6   30  50  70  50 50  30  10  70  2

Totals of line:
a) 484 = 2 x 2 x 11 x 11
b) 4197
c) 49 = 7 x 7
d) 1723
e) 2036
f) 77 = 7 x 11
g) 1751
h) 778 = 2 x 389

18.128 words (7 x 2 x 2 SF:11) have the highest and lowest letters adjacent to each other.

18.2.1The sum of the word positions is symmetrical. 484 illustrates the same God first and last.

18.2.2The sum of the factors of 484 (2 x 2 x 11 x 11) equal the sum of the Divine Name. The two elevens match the two appearances of the Divine Name.

18.3.1The sum of the positions within the words for the first letter is 49 (7 x 7).

18.3.2Mirroring feature 18.3.1, the sum of the positions within the words for the second letter found is 77 (11 x 7). The eleven points back to the God of the beginning and the end.

18.3.3High and low (first and last) together (line C plus Line F): 49 + 77 = 126. This result parallels the result for the letters at the beginning and end of each word.

18.4The high and low letters of each word added up (line E plus line H):
2036 + 778 = 2814 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 67.

It would have been nice if lines E and H individually were divisible by 7 exactly like the letters at the beginning and end of each word (features 2 and 3), but nothing says they have to. The results are not the same because the beginning and the end is different from the first and the last.

18.5.1Line E lists the first of the pair of highest or lowest numbers in a word. Eliminating all those that were not the higher number produces the list below.

200 10 10 50 200 60 60 300 70 9 100 30 100 100 70 70 70 300 200

The sum of all the high letters is 2009 (7 x 7 x 41). The sum of the factors is a symmetrical 55.

18.5.2This is the list of numbers removed from Line E.

30 50 200 80 50 70 50 50 70

The sum is 650 (2 x 5 x 5 x 13).

18.6From the main table above, take the original word positions (Line a) and give them a new rank (n):

 n)  1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 
 a)  1 2 3 4 6 6 7 8 9 10 13 15 16 18 19 20 21 22 23 25 26 27 

 n)  23 24 25 26 27 28 
 a)  28 29 30 31 32 33 

18.6.1Borrowing the principle of God being present every other instant (I Am - Feature 2.1) take every other position from line a) of 18.6:

1   3   6   7   9    13    16    19    21    23    26    28    30    32

The sum of the odd positions: 234 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 13.

18.6.2Every seventh from the list:

7 14 21 28
7 18 26 33 = 84 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 7

18.6.3 Every third from the list:

3 6 9 12 15 18 21 24 27
3 6 9 15 19 22 26 29 32 = 161 = 7 x 23

18.6.4Applying the Divine Name's letters individually produce only one feature, but using them together finds another.

Every 10th:    10   25                  = 35 = 7 x 5
Every 5th:     6    10   19   25   30   = 90
Every 6th:     6    15   22   29        = 72
Every 5th:     6    10   19   25   30   = 90
                   Total of the results: 287 = 7 x 41

From the Divine Name, the 10th, 5th, 6th, and 5th from the list above are the 10th, 6th, 6th and 6th words (10 + 6 + 6 + 6 = 28).

18.7Six words (5, 11, 12, 14, 17, 24) do not appear in the table because the highest and lowest letters are not next to each other (i.e. they do not meet). Did God forget them? No. They have their own special features.

Word position    5         11        12        14      17       24
Letter position	 16  18	   39 41     42 44     49 51   60 62    85 88
Letter           200 6     1  400    50 200    1  80   6  300   1  400

18.7.1The positions of the highest and lowest letters in these words: 16 18 39 41 42 44 49 51 60 62 85 88. Their sum is 595 (5 x 7 x 17).

18.7.2The sum of these letters (high and low): 200 6 1 400 50 200 1 80 6 300 1 400 = 1645 = 5 x 7 x 47.

18.7.3 Being more selective, from each pair list only those where the letter and position is higher: 41 44 51 62 88 (286 = 2 x 11 x 13).

List only those where the letter and position are lower: 39 42 49 60 85 (275 = 5 x 5 x 11 [The sum of the factors is 21.]) There is no 7 or 13, but coincidentally the number 11 appears.

18.7.4The sum of the lowest of each pair: 6 1 50 1 6 1 = 65 = 5 x 13. The sum of the highest of each pair is 1580 (79 x 5 x 2 x 2) and has no features. However, the sum of the factors of 1580 is 88 (11 x 2 x 2 x 2). Eleven matches the one God in Revelation 1:8, and three 2's illustrate the triplet of paired qualities.

19.1There is another way demonstrating magnitude along with God being present every instant. Divide the passage into pairs of letters. Within each pair, separate high from low.

The highest letters of each pair.

a)  position                  b)  letter

a)  2  4   6  8 10 12 13 16  17 19 22 24 26  27 29 31 33  36
b)  10 200 10 6 10 6  5  200 8  40 50 50 200 20 80 40 200 60

a)  38 40 41  44  46 48 50 51 54 55  57 59 62  63 66 68 70 71
b)  6  40 400 200 60 30 30 80 50 300 70 50 300 70 9  5  50 100

a)  73 76 77  80  82 84 86 88  89 92 94 96 97 99 102 104 105
b)  30 50 100 100 70 50 2  400 70 50 40 70 30 50 50  40  70

a)  107 109 111 113 115 117 = 3514 = 2 x 7 x 251
b)  300 300 40  70  200 70  = 5297

The lowest letters of each pair.

a)  1 3   5 7 9 11 14 15 18 20 21 23 25 28 30 32 34 35 37 39
b)  6 100 1 5 5 5  1  30 6  6  8  6  1  1  10 6  2  8  4  1

a)  42 43 45 47 49 52 53 56 58 60 61 64 65 67 69 72 74 75 78
b)  50 90 8  4  1  10 40 1  6  6  80 6  8  1  6  5  1  10 5

a)  79 81 83 85 87 90 91 93 95 98 100 101  103 106 108 110 112
b)  80 4  6  1  6  30 2  10 6  2  10  2    10  30  30  10  6

a)  114 116 118 = 3507 = 3 x 7 x 167
b)  30  2   10  = 837

19.1.1The sum of the letters have no feature, but the sum of the positions do. Both lists produce sums divisible by 7. These features show just how deep God is into every instant (the one who is). Truly God is present every instant in time.

19.1.2From the list of high letters, beginning with the first and taking every other:

10 10 10 5 8 50 200 80 200 6 400 60 30 50 70 300 9 50 30 
100 70 2 70 40 30 50 70 300 70 70.

The sum is 2450 = 2 x 5 x 5 x 7 x 7.

19.1.3From the list of low letters, beginning with the first and taking every other:

6 1 5 1 6 8 1 10 2 4 50 8 1 40 6 80 8 6 1 5 4 1 30 10 2 2 
30 10 30 10

The sum is 378 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7.

19.1.4On a side note, from the highest letters of each pair (feature 19.1.1), the factors of 3514 add up to 260 (ten times the value of the Divine Name). And also from this same list, taking every other item (feature 19.1.2), the factors of 2450 add up to 26 (the exact value of the Divine Name). No similar feature appears from the list of the lowest letters of each pair. This emphasis on the high list reminds us of the phrase in the Bible where God is called The Most High.

19.1.5The same can be done with the words. Pair up the words. Record the highest word of each pair in one list, and the lowest of the pair in a separate list. The last word will have no pair and thus is automatically included in the list of high words.

High words:
1   4  5   7   9   11  14  15  17  19  22  24  26  27  29  31  33
317 31 254 221 208 447 191 351 456 161 184 409 102 106 102 680 322

Low words:
2  3  6   8   10 12  13 16  18 20 21  23  25  28 30  32
26 26 120 131 72 340 72 126 29 31 165 126 100 62 100 106

The words are not exactly like the letters because the number of words is not divisible by seven like the 119 letters. Nevertheless, the sum of the positions in the high list works just like the letters. The sum of the high positions:
294 = 2 x 3 x 7 x 7.

19.2Separate the passage into sections of 7 letters each and list the highest and lowest letters in each section.

a)  Position of highest letter in section.          b)  High letter.
c)  Position of lowest letter in section.           d)  Low letter.

a)  4   10 16  26  33  41  44  55  62  70 71  80  88  96 105 107 115
b)  200 10 200 200 200 400 200 300 300 50 100 100 400 70 70  300 200
c)  5   14 18  25  34  39  49  56  58  67 74  81  85  98 101 112 116
d)  1   1  6   1   2   1   1   1   6   1  1   4   1   2  2   6   2

The sum of line a) 1023 = 3 x 11 x 31.
The sum of line b) 3300 = 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 5 x 11
The sum of line c) 1032 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 43
The sum of line d) 39 = 3 x 13 

19.2.1At first, there don't seem to be any features here except for the sum of line d). However, in this case, the sum of the high and low letters together is 3339 (7 x 3 x 53). The sum of the factors is 63 (7 x 3 x 3). And the sum of these factors is 13.

(Note the number 11 in the totals of lines a and b.)

19.2.2Similar to feature 2 above, the highest and lowest in sections of 7 letters also illustrate the God who is. Beginning with the first in line b) and taking every other after: 200 200 200 200 300 100 400 70 200. The sum is 1870 (2 x 5 x 11 x 17 SF:35 = 7 x 5). The number 11 by itself does not seem very significant until we see what happens in line d.

Starting with the first in line d) and taking every other: 1 6 2 1 6 1 1 2 2. The sum is 22 (2 x 11 SF:13). Again we see 11.

19.2.3From the list above, select only those where the highest and lowest letters meet. In other words, where they are next to each other.

a)  4   26  33  55  80  115 = 313
b)  200 200 200 300 100 200 = 1200
c)  5   25  34  56  81  116 = 317
d)  1   1   2   1   4   2   = 11

The sum of the positions (high and low): 313 + 317 = 630 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 7.
The sum of the letters (high and low): 1200 + 11 = 1211 = 7 x 173.

20.Based on the numeric sum of the divine name YHWH, divide the passage into sections of 13 letters each and ignore the last two letters. Within each of the nine sections apply first and last (i.e. magnitude), to the letters listing the highest and lowest in each section.

a) Position of highest letter in a section of 13.
b) Highest letter.
c) Position of lowest letter in a section of 13.
d) Lowest letter.

a) 4   16  33  41  55  71  88  96 107  = 511
b) 200 200 200 400 300 100 400 70 300  = 2170
c) 5   14  28  49  56  67  85  98 116  = 518
d) 1   1   1   1   1   1   1   2  2    = 11 = 11

20.1.1The sum of the positions of the highest valued letter in each section
(Line A): 511 = 7 x 73.

20.1.2The sum of the highest letters in each section of thirteen (Line B):
2170 = 2 x 5 x 7 x 31.

20.1.3The sum of the positions of the lowest valued letter in each section
(Line C): 518 = 2 x 7 x 37.

20.1.4The sum of the lowest letters in each section of thirteen
(Line D): 11 (one God beginning and end).

20.2The sum of the positions high and low together produce and extra feature of seven (from 20.1.1 and 20.1.3): 511 + 518 = 1029 (3 x 7 x 7 x 7). [Unfortunately, the letters high and low do not produce a feature.]

20.3.1Pulling every other position from Line A: 4 33 55 88 107.
Total: 287 = 7 x 41.

20.3.2This means the remainder of Line A would also be divisible by 7:
511 - 287 = 224 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 7).

20.3.3Pulling every other letter value from Line B: 200 200 300 400 300.
Total: 1400 = 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 5 x 7.

20.3.4This means the remainder of Line B would also be divisible by 7:
2170 - 1400 = 770 (2 x 5 x 7 x 11). [And again, unfortunately, the same is not true for Line C or D.]

These features dealt with first and last as magnitude. Now we consider the first and last as positions, or when certain letters appear.

21.1Letter 6 is the first letter in the passage. It is also a letter in the Divine Name. The letters 1, 8, 50, and 400, when added individually to 6, produce sums divisible by 7.

           Appears        Value of this
           in the         letter in the
Letter     passage:        passage:
  1           10          1 x 10  =  10
  8           5           8 x 5   =  40
  50          11          50 x 11 = 550
  400         2           400 x 2 = 800
            times         Total:   1400 = 7 x 5 x 5 x 2 x 2 x 2)

21.2Two other letters share the same characteristics with the letter 6: 20, and 300. When either number is added to 1, 8, 50 or 400, the resulting sum is divisible by 7. The three letters together (6, 20, 300) are related according to their positions in the passage.

Beginning at the very beginning (zero), add 1. This is the first position in the passage, and the letter in this position is 6. Naturally, this is the very first time 6 appears. Add 26 (the number of the Divine Name), and the resulting position is 27. The 27th position is the very first appearance of the letter 20. Add 1 and 27 to the 27th position, and the result is 55. The letter 300 first appears in the 55th position.

21.3A similar feature exists when searching for sums divisible by 13. The letter 3 is not used in the verse. Nevertheless, 3 + 10 = 13, and 3 + 400 = 403 (31 x 13). The letters 10 and 400 are related in two ways:

           Appears      Value of this
           in the       letter in the
Letter     passage:     passage:
  10          11        10 x 11   = 110
  400         2         400 x 2   = 800
           times        Total:      910 (23 x 7 x 5 x 2)

Letter 10 appears first in position 2, while letter 400 first appears in position 41, exactly 39 (13 x 3) positions away.

Note: The letter 40 is the last letter in the passage, but it does not mirror the features above for the letter 6. Why 6 and not 40? It's not just because the beginning is different from the end, or that the first is not the same as the last. There is another reason. The letter 6 is part of the Divine Name. The letter 40 is not. Nevertheless, there are features for the last letter of the proclamation, but only in conjunction with the first letter (see next feature).

22.1The first letter is 6. Its next appearance is in position 8. List the letters from position 1 to position 8:

1 2  3   4   5 6  7 8
6 10 100 200 1 10 5 6
Total of positions: 36 (coincidentally 6 x 6) 
Total of letters: 338 (2 x 13 x 13)

22.2The last letter is 40. Its second last appearance is in position 111. List the letters from position 111 to position 119.

111 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119
40  6   70  30  200 2   70  10  40 
Total of positions: 1035
Total of letters: 468 (2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 13)

Both cases point back to the God who is First and Last.

22.3The sum of the positions in 22.1 and 22.2:
36 + 1035 = 1071 (3 x 3 x 7 x 17).

22.4Using the value of the first letter (6), add up the first 6 letters.

1 2  3   4   5 6 
6 10 100 200 1 10
Total of positions: 21 (3 x 7)
Total of letters: 327

Using the value of the last letter (40), add up the last 40 letters.

80  81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88  89 90 91 92 93 94 95 96 97 98 
100 4  70 6  50 1  2  6  400 70 30 2  50 10 40 6  70 30 2  

99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111 112 113 
50 10  2   50  10  40  70  30  300 30  300 10  40  6   70  

114 115 116 117 118 119           
30  200 2   70  10  40            
Total of positions: 3980
Total of letters: 2319

The sum of the letters together: 327 + 2319 = 2646 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7 x 7.

23.1Letters that are first in a word: 1 2 6 8 10 30 50 70 80 200 300. Total: 757. There are no factors of 7 or 13, but it is a symmetrical number beginning and ending with the digit 7.

23.2Letters that are last in a word: 1 2 4 5 10 20 30 40 50 70 200 400. Total: 832 = 13 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 SF: 25 = 5 x 5 SF: 10 = 5 x 2 SF: 7.

23.3Letters not first or last in a word: 9 60 90 100. Total: 259 = 37 x 7.

23.4Letters that are first but not last: 6 8 80 300. Total: 394 (no feature).

Letters that are last but not first: 4 5 20 40 400. Total: 469 = 7 x 67.

23.5Letters that were never first: 4 5 9 20 40 60 90 100 400. Total: 728 = 13 x 7 x 2 x 2 x 2 SF: 26 = 13 x 2.

23.6Letters that were never last: 6 8 9 60 80 90 100 300. Total: 653. (No feature.)

Of these six letter categories half of them produce totals divisible by 7. One is divisible by 13 (pointing to God’s name), and a fourth is a pseudo-feature with a symmetrical number. Once again the results are better than the odds.

23.The principle of first and last is self restricting. It can only be applied at certain points. When we do this, where certain letters first appear, which word they appear in, and the number of letters in these words, are all related. They also contain numeric features.

24.1.1The first pair of (consecutive) letters whose sum together is divisible by seven is 8 and 6 in positions 17 and 18. 17 + 18 = 35 (7 x 5).

24.1.2The last pair of letters whose sum together is divisible by seven is 400 and 6 in positions 87 and 88. 88 + 87 = 175 (7 x 5 x 5).

24.1.3Add up the positions of the first of each pair: 938 = 67 x 7 x 2.

24.2.1The first pair of letters (feature 24.1.1) resides in the 5th word with numeric value 254. The last pair of letters (feature 24.1.2) is in the 24th word, with a sum of 409. 254 + 409 = 663 (17 x 13 x 3).

24.2.2The 5th word has four letters in positions 16 17 18 and 19. The 24th word has four letters in positions 85 86 87 and 88. The sum of the eight positions together: 416 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 13).

24.3The positions of the first pair were 17 and 18. The positions of the last pair were 87 and 88. The sum of all the letters from positions 17 to 88 (a) position, (b) letter:

a)  17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26  27 28 29 30 31 32 33  34 35
b)  8  6  40 6  8  50 6  50 1  200 20 1  80 10 40 6  200 2  8

a)  36 37 38 39 40 41  42 43 44  45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54
b)  60 4  6  1  40 400 50 90 200 8  60 4  30 1  30 80 10 40 50

a)  55  56 57 58 59 60 61 62  63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70 71  72
b)  300 1  70 6  50 6  80 300 70 6  8  9  1  5  6  50 100 5

a)  73 74 75 76 77  78 79 80  81 82 83  84 85 86 87 88
b)  30 1  10 50 100 5  80 100 4  70 6   50 1  2  6  400

24.3.1From the first of the first pair to the last of the last pair, the total of the positions: 3780 (2 x 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 5 x 7).

24.3.2The total of the letters: 3894 (2 x 3 x 11 x 59). The 11 points to the one God first and last.

24.3.3From the last of the first pair to the first of the last pair, the total of the positions would be: 3780 - 17 - 88 = 3675 = 7 x 7 x 5 x 5 x 3.

24.3.4The corresponding total of the letters would be 3894 - 8 - 400 = 3486 = 7 x 2 x 3 x 83.

25.The following table lists the positions where each letter (a) first (b) and last (c) appeared.

a) 1  2   4  5  6   8  9  10  20 30  40  50  60 70  80 90 100 200 300 
b) 5  34  37 7  1   17 66 2   27 15  19  22  36 57  29 43 3   4   55  
c) 85 116 81 78 112 65 0  118 0  114 119 102 46 117 79 0  80  115 109 

a) 400
b) 41 
c) 88 

25.1Total of first appearances: 520 (2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 13). As we can see, everything begins with God (13).

25.2Total of last appearances: 1624 (2 x 2 x 2 x 7 x 29). After everything begins with God, everything ends perfectly (7).

25.3The sum of the factors of 520 is 25. The sum of the factors of 1624 is 42. First and last mirror each other.

25.4.1The sum of the letters: 1485 (11 x 5 x 3 x 3 x 3 SF: 25 = 5 x 5 SF: 10 = 5 x 2 SF: 7). One God beginning and end appears in the factor of 11.

25.4.2The grand total of positions first and last (25.1 and 25.2), 2144, has no features, until its factors are considered (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 67). The sum of the factors is 77 (7 x 11). The perfect one God is shown with the beginning and end.

25.5.1Sum of the letters where their first appearance is in an odd position, while their last appearance is in and even position: 651 (31 x 7 x 3).

25.5.2Sum of these letters' positions (first and last appearances): 609 (29 x 7 x 3 SF: 39 = 13 x 3).

Three letters in the list above show no last position. This is because they appear only one time in the verse. The letters are 9, 20, and 90. (Coincidentally, the sum of these three letters is equal to the number of letters in the passage and factors 7 x 17.) The numbers above treat first and last as separate and different, but it could be argued first AND last are supposed to be together. In this case, the first appearance of these three letters is their last appearance. (See next feature.)

25.5.3Treating the first appearance as the last for letters 9, 20, and 90, changes the sum of line (b) to: 1760 (2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 5 x 11). The number 11 refers to the one God, and the sum of the factors is 26, the number of the Divine Name.

The grand total is now 2280 (2 x 2 x 2 x 3 x 5 x 19), which again appears to give us nothing. However, the sum of the factors is 33 (3 x 11). 33 is the number of words in the passage, and the eleven again points to God. Finally, 33 = 3 x 11 and 3 + 11 = 14 (7 x 2).

There are fewer features in this final scenario. Even so, there are features pointing back to God.

These numeric features highlight and emphasize the importance of this passage. There is one other major concept being taught. Notice that there is only one instance of the Hebrew word אל for God.

The LORD passed before him, and proclaimed, The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children, to the third and the fourth generation. (Exodus 34:6-7)
ויעבר יהוה על פניו ויקרא יהוה יהוה אל רחום וחנון ארך אפים ורבחסד ואמת נצר חסד לאלפים נשא עון ופשע וחטאה ונקה לא ינקה פקד עון אבות עלבנים ועלבני בנים עלשלשים ועלרבעים

In many cases where God’s name יהוה (YHWH) appears in the Bible, it is associated with the Hebrew word אלהים (Elohim; gods): יהוה אלהים. Elohim is plural. And this is usually translated in most English Bibles as LORD God. LORD capitalized stands in for the name יהוה, and Elohim is translated in the singular as God. Since Elohim is plural, this has been taken by many as a sign of God being plural, as in the theory of the Trinity. However, notice how in this very important verse where God describes Himself, He only uses the singular.

The first six words of Joshua 22:22 sheds light on the phrase יהוה אלהים (YHWH Elohim). The King James Version, and other Bibles translate the first six words as, The God of gods, the LORD. The God of gods, the LORD. Thus the phrase יהוה אלהים should actually be understood as YHWH of (the) Gods. God is singular. There is no Trinity. For more on this, see the numeric study The God of gods.

This really should be enough to convince you that studying the Bible is important and worth it. Numbers are infinite and can go on forever. They're not essential to your spiritual development or salvation. Don't get caught in the numbers. Reading and studying the Bible is essential. But if you insist...

Note 1Every number can be factored.

 4 = 2 x 2
 31 = 31 x 1

The number 1 could be added to any series of factors without changing the end result.

e.g. 4 = 2 x 2 x 1 or 4 = 2 x 2 x 1 x 1 x 1 ... x 1

In essence, any series of factors could be made to add up to multiples of 7 or 13.

31 = 31 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1
(The sum of factors here would be 35, which is 7 x 5.)

31 = 31 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1 x 1
(The sum of the factors would now be 39.)

This of course is statistically meaningless. It depends on the arbitrary addition of the number 1. Nevertheless, mathematically, this demonstrates the importance of the number 1 (the one God). With God, everything turns out.

Note 2The number of words in the proclamation total 33 (a symmetrical number). It could be explained this way. The first digit (3) is related to the three sets of attributes in the first part of Revelation 1:8 (Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, First and Last). The second digit (3) refers to the second part of Revelation 1:8 (is, was and is to come).

The number 33 factors into 11 x 3. Here we see another symmetrical number, with 2 ones. The 2 ones refer to the one God who is Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, and or First and Last. Although there is only one 3 this time, it could refer equally to each of the digits of the number 11.

The sum of the factors of 33 is 14, which in turn factors into 7 x 2. Seven pertains to God’s perfection. Two relates to the first and second parts of Revelation 1:8.

The sum of the factors of 14 is 9. This factors 3 x 3. Here again the two parts of Revelation 1:8 are displayed: Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End, First and Last, along with is, was, and is to come.

The sum of the factors of 9 is 6. This in turn breaks down into 3 x 2. These factors can refer to the three sets of attributes in the first part of Revelation 1:8, and the triple attribute in the second, or conversely to the two parts of Revelation 1:8, each with three attributes.

The sum of the factors of 6 is 5, which is a prime number and cannot be factored. What does the number 5 refer to? We must remember where God issued these two proclamations. One was on Mt. Sinai, and the other was in heaven. Revelation 4:8 sets a glorious stage. God has four living creatures around Him. Five represents God and the four living creatures.

From beginning to end, the number of words in the proclamation all point back to the one God. (There is no need to refer to an explanation from the theory of the Trinity.)
