One of my favourite subjects, it is truly jaw dropping and PROVES the 'Supernatural' source of the KJV
From John Davis' Battle notes
Numbers in Scripture
To think that everything in the world that is man-made is ‘made’ by only 10 numbers and 26
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 0
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Even without entering into this study on numbers, it is obvious after careful study, man could not have written the Holy Bible. The Scriptures were authored by God and penned via man without mistake i.e. the Scriptures are preserved perfect today in the Authorized Version aka KJV Bible.
Note the following three verses… 2 Tim 3v16, 2 Pet 1v21, Ps 12v6+7
But another proof of God’s perfect words, and giving us a Book, is by looking into the number patterns in Scripture.
Most people see the Bible as just another book, even worse, a Book that is not relevant for today as it is out of date, full of myths and is just not accurate according to science and mathematics. They’re dead wrong!
Mat 7v13 (note 13 is the number of rebellion)
Mat 7v14 (note 7 is the number of perfection and completeness (14 = 2x7))
The Bible is so different to any other book: no other book dare do what the Bible does i.e… It accurately predicted 48 details of the Lord Jesus Christ’s life before He was even born, and some of the predictions were given 1,000 years beforehand. Every one of those predictions came to pass literally as prophesied. What book has ever done that? Prophecy proves the Bible!
Regarding number patterns in Scripture…
In Hebrew and Greek, every letter, word, sentence, and passage has a definite numeric value or sum. The Hebrews and Greeks did not use figures such as 1, 2, 3 or 4 to count numeric value. Rather, they used the letters of their alphabet. For example, if a Hebrew or Greek wanted to write ‘1’ he would write the first letter of the alphabet. If he wanted to write ‘2’ he would write down the second letter of the alphabet etc.
Each letter in the Hebrew and Greek alphabet stands for a certain number; every letter is a number, as well as a letter.
Since each letter has a numeric value, each word, phrase, or sentence has a sum total. The numeric sum of a word is obtained by adding the values of the various letters in that particular word, phrase, or sentence.
The most important word in the Bible is the name ‘Jesus’.
In Greek, Jesus is spelled - ‘I-E-S-O-U-S.’
I = 10
E = 8
S = 200
O = 70
U = 400
S = 200
If we add these numbers, we find the numerical value of ‘Jesus’ is 888.
The number ‘7’ is very significant in Scripture as we shall find out. In Gen 1v1 the three important nouns are… God, heaven and earth.
The numeric values of these three words are 86, 395 and 296. When we add these three numbers up we get 777 (111 x 7) If another word was used or another letter added (i.e. ‘heavenS’), the mathematical pattern would have been broken. The numeric value of the Hebrew verb ‘created’ in the first verse is exactly 203 (29 x 7)
For a mere human being like Matthew, Mark, Luke or John to have purposely determined to have designed and written a single chapter to conform to an established mathematical pattern would have taken a lifetime. Dr. D.B. Turney related how he attempted to construct a passage that would show some numeric features, and he concluded, ‘I gave numeric values to the English alphabet, and tried to prepare a passage which would adhere to the numerics, and make every section a multiple of seven (7), and present all the other features of Biblical arithmography’, without letting the meaning of the passage descend to nonsense. After working thereon for days, I could get no satisfaction. Yet this feature is accomplished in every one of the thousands of Bible paragraphs without the slightest visible effort.’
The Bible must have one Author; how could 40 men living in different centuries, over a period of 1,700 years, have compiled a consistent account of creation, the fall of man into sin, and his ultimate redemption through faith in the promised Redeemer of God?
The KJV Bible has…
1,189 chapters, 31,102 verses (Incidentally 3+1+1+0+2 = 7), and 788,258 words
It is divided into two parts: the OT and the NT. The first section has 39 books; the second section contains 27 books. In order to remember this numerically, the following has been worked out…
Old Testament –
Old = 3 letters; Testament = 9 letters. 3 and 9 beside each other gives 39 books in the OT
New Testament –
New = 3 letters; Testament = 9 letters. Multiply 3 x 9 =27 books in the NT
39 books in the OT and 27 books in the NT = 66 books in total.
The only book that bears 66 chapters is Isaiah. Isaiah is a ‘little’ Bible within the Bible…
1) The first chapter of Isaiah says… Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: (Isa 1v2). The first
book in the Bible says… In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. (Gen 1v1)
2) The last chapter of Isaiah says…For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, (Isa 66v22). The 66th and LAST book of the Bible (Revelation) says…And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: (Rev 21v1)
3) Isaiah 40v3 says…The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of
the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. The 40th book of the Bible is
Matthew and Mat 3v3 says…For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying,
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths
The number ONE in Scripture signifies unity. It occurs in 1698 verses.
The word ONE occurs for the first time in the word of God in Gen 1v9…And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so.
The great statement to Israel is…Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: (Deut 6v4)
Another great case for the number ONE is found in Gen 11…
Gen 11v1 And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech.
Gen 11v6 And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
So the number ONE as it stands refers to strength of unity
Paul says he wants to have the believers to be of ONE mind, he goes on to say…
See also Gen 2v24, Mat 19v5, Mat 19v6, Eph 5v31.
TWO occurs in 703 verses.
The number TWO in Scripture signifies division – Amos 3v3 Can two walk together, except they be agreed?
1) On the SECOND day of creation, God made a firmament that…DIVIDED the waters…from the waters (Gen 1v6-8)
2) On the FOURTH day (2x2), God made ‘TWO great lights’ that DIVIDED the day from the night (Gen 1v16)
3) Adam became TWO in Genesis TWO (Gen 2v22)
4) In the SECOND book of the Bible (Exodus), Israel was DIVIDED from Egypt
5) In Gen 10v25, a man named Eber had TWO sons, and in his days (Peleg) was the earth DIVIDED!
6) TWO angels SEPARATED Lot from Sodom in Gen 19
7) No man can serve TWO masters - No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot
serve God and mammon. (Mat 6v24)
8) Jesus Christ is the mediator of the NT (Heb 9v25), and He caused the Temple veil to be RENT in TWAIN (Mat 27v51) and a DIVISION among the Jews (John 7v43 + John 10v19)
9) At His SECOND Advent He SPLITS the Mount of Olives (Zech 14v4)
10) Mark 10v37 They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and
the other on thy left hand, in thy glory. DIVISION/SPLIT
11) A schizophrenic is a SPLIT personality
THREE occurs in 426 verses.
Some numbers in the Bible have ‘primary’ and ‘secondary’ meanings.
THREE is such a number. Its primary meaning is Godhead (Trinity); God being first in all things.
1) Mat 28v19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
2) In Mat 3 (verses 16+17) Jesus was baptised (1) the Spirit of God descended (2), and the Father spoke (3)
3) 1 John 5v7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one.
The secondary meaning is resurrection.
1) The Gospel of the grace of God is the death (1), burial (2) and resurrection (3) – 1 Cor 15v1-4
2) Jesus raised THREE from the dead in His earthly ministry – the widows son, Jarius’s daughter and Lazarus
3) Israel is to be raised as a nation on the THIRD day (Hos 6v2)
Something special about the number THREE is that in the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ, He was raised on the THIRD day (Mat 12v38-40) by the DIVINE THREE in the Godhead: God
the Father raised Him (Gal 1v1), Jesus raised Himself (John 2v19-21), and the Holy Spirit raised Him (Rom 8v11).
In the Lord Jesus Christ dwells…all the fullness of the Godhead bodily (Col 2v9)
It is also very interesting to note that the word Godhead occurs THREE times in Scripture… Acts 17v29, Rom 1v20, Col 2v9
The number THREE also shows the…
The imprint of the Godhead in the universe.
The significance of ‘THREE’…

Abel? Abel didn’t die he was killed – Gen 4v8)
7) In Exo 27v1, the altar used for slaying sacrifices is FIVE cubits! i.e. 5x5

It has 16 chapters and teaches us how a ‘Gentile’ (number of a Gentile is 10) MAN (man’s number is 6) can be made just before God
9) The number, as it stands by itself (I.e. NOT ‘sixth’), occurs for the first time in Gen 7v6 where Noah is 600 (6x100) years old when the flood comes

SEVEN is the number of PERFECTION or COMPLETION.
In Ps 19v7 The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple. (Note verse SEVEN. What is the SEVENTH word? PERFECT!)
Someone has written ‘The whole word of God is founded upon the number seven. It stands for the seventh day of the creation week, and speaks of the millennium rest day. It denotes completeness or perfection’.
Lev 23v15+16. The number seven and the Sabbath, which was the seventh day (Gen 2v1-3), is
connected with the word ‘complete’.
The word ‘finished’ is also connected with the number seven. In Rev 10v7 we read… ‘But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.’

In John 10 you have the sheep of the other fold
In Rom 10 you have the missionary call message to the Gentiles

One preacher has written… ‘The first time the word TEN occurs in the Bible, it occurs in Gen 5v14. The days were 910 years in a man’s life, the word TEN occurring here for the first time, which is a reference to the life of somebody before the law. They are all Gentiles before the law. Of course I know that they’re divided off into Gentiles coming from Japheth, and then the Shemites and Ham under another one, but the division in the NT is Gentile, Jew and church; and before the law, Abraham is an uncircumcised Gentile’.
The last world power on this earth under the United Nations will be a TEN federated kingdom of Gentiles represented by the toes on Daniel’s image, and represented by the TEN kings of Rev 17. This is Gentile world dominion when Christ Jesus returns to set up an Everlasting Kingdom. The first Gentile kingdom was set up in Gen 10 by Nimrod, the thirteenth from Adam.
ELEVEN appears in 24 verses.
ELEVEN is not conclusive; it’s quite a tricky number to locate its meaning.

Canaan had ELEVEN sons…
13) 1 Kings 11v11 pronounces God’s judgment upon Solomon
14) In John 16v11, Jesus said… Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

TWELVE occurs in 165 verses.
The number TWELVE is a reference to Israel

THIRTEEN is one of the most interesting of all numbers. It occurs in 15 verses.
It is clearly associated with rebellion - Gen 14v4 Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth year they rebelled. This is the first reference to thirteen in the Bible!
1) Gen 13v13… But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly. (Note 13 words)
2) In Gen 13 Lot pitched his tent towards Sodom
3) Rebellion is found in…Gen 13v13, Mark 13v13, Ezek 13v13 and Rev 13v13
4) Deut 13 contains the rules for a false prophet whose miracles come to pass. In Rev 13v13, the false prophet of the Tribulation period causes fire to come down out of heaven in the sight of men, a miracle that comes to pass.

FOURTEEN means deliverance
In Gen 14, Abram delivered Lot from King Chedorlaomer (in his 14th year – verse 5)
In verse 20, Melchizedek said, And blessed be the most high God, which hath delivered thine enemies into thy hand. And he gave him tithes of all.
1) In Christ’s genealogy there were 14 generations from Abraham to David, 14 generations from David to the Babylonian captivity, and 14 generations from the captivity to Christ (the Divine Deliverer). This makes THREE 14’s (Divine deliverance)
2) If you count back 14 books from the last book in the OT i.e. Ezekiel and look at 14v14, it
lists THREE men who experienced Divine deliverance – Noah (delivered from the Flood),
Daniel (delivered from the mouth of the lion) and Job (delivered from the Devil) – Note the
FOURTEENTH word in the verse is deliver.

9) In Exodus 14, Israel was delivered from Pharaoh and his host in the Red Sea.
Forty occurs in 145 verses.
FORTY is the number of probation or a testing period of time
Nearly every time the number shows up in the Scriptures it is in connection with testing.
1) The first time the number FORTY shows up (by itself i.e. not eight hundred and forty Gen 5v13) is in Gen 7v4 where the flood was upon the earth FORTY days and FORTY nights (see also Gen 7v17)

ONE THOUSAND (1,000)
The word THOUSAND occurs six times in Rev 20 indicating that there is a 6,000 year span of time, before the seventh day Millennial Sabbath rest of the Lord Jesus Christ, when He returns to the earth to set up His kingdom.
It has been said that the word THOUSAND, where it occurs, is the division that divides off the ages. The ages are divided off into periods of ONE THOUSAND years each, and these periods are roughly, as found in your Bible…
1st – from the time of Adam down about the year 3,000 BC
2nd – the next period would come down about the year 2,000 BC which would be right after the Flood around 2,300 BC
3rd – you could date the time of Abraham right on the 2,000 BC mark!
4th – The founding of the temple by Solomon would be right on the mark at 1,000 BC
5th – The middle of the Dark Ages at the Crusades would be at 1,000 AD
6th – the Second Advent in the fall (September or October) at the Feast of Tabernacles when the Lord Jesus is coming to set up His Millennial kingdom on this earth.
2 Pet 3v8, 1 Chron 29v21. In Rev 20v2-7 we see the word thousand SIX times. The Millennium is ONE THOUSAND YEARS (1,000) no matter what the A-Millennialist tells you. If this wasn’t enough, the night God appeared to Solomon, Solomon offered 1,000 burning offerings on the altar (2 Chron 1v6).
