With the word numerics, I do not mean number mysticism or any form of prediction. If you have such a fixed attitude, you are like my acquaintance with whom I was in correspondence; he would not even open my e-mail attachments which included articles on the subject, but outright assured me it is forbidden in the Bible. The question is that the Bible passes through a mathematical formula or a seal of God that is so comprehensive and which can in no way be made by man or by biblical writers.
2 Tim 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God” … and Peter adds: ”for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God.
The old scriptures often start this way: 1 Cro 22:8 But the word of Jehovah came to me, saying…
The New Testament writers, the apostles, each wrote their writings for several decades after the events took place. Someone may wonder how it is possible that everyone could memorize the events so well and describe them often very closely and in the same way with other writers. There is a simple explanation: Jesus promised to his apostles that they would receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, and the Holy Spirit would bring to their remembrance all that Jesus had taught them: Jhn 14:26 But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and remind you of all that I have told you.
There are few people who believe that the Bible is true in everything. Even from the first line in the Bible, the creation of the world and man is controversial, and as evidence of science that both man and animals are claimed to be the result of millions of years of evolution. How can it be explained then that the author of the Bible knew that man was created from the dust of the earth? (It might be better to say material from the earth, but with the same meaning). If people were asked two or three thousand years ago what man was made of, the answer would have been something like this: a human being is made of flesh, bones and blood. If someone claimed that humans consisted mostly of water (70% and water was made up of two gases, hydrogen and oxygen), and also of the following elements: carbon, nitrogen, calcium, phosphorus, then such arguments would have been laughed at. However, the author of the Bible knew that man was made of earth’s ingredients, although these substances were not mentioned.
The Bible is written mainly in Hebrew (OT) and in Greek (NT). Each and every letter in both languages (and Latin also) have a certain number value. The Bible canon has 39 books in the OT and 27 books in the NT. The entire Bible was finished about 1600 years ago. The Old Testament is written by 28 writers (4 × 7) and the New Testaments 8 writers (2x2x2), altogether 36 authors (6 × 6). Of the epistles of the New Testament Paul has written 14 (2 × 7) and the other 7 are written by other apostles. This ‘seven’ we often encounter.
Bible’s divine numerics – What does the numeric code prove?
Of this most important question I have included a chapter of its own in these writings. It essentially contains a testimony of the divine numerics of the Bible. The numerics which cover both the Hebrew Old Testament as well as the Greek New Testament, do not mean any numerology or number mysticism. After having realized this powerful Bible numerics, I believe that the whole Bible is the Word of God, although the pen has been in a man’s hand. So accurate is the word of God that changing a single letter from the original text violates this divine numeric code. However, this has happened: mistakes may have occurred when copying, either inadvertently or deliberately, errors have been made, even additions. However, thousands of preserved texts have been reconstructed fairly well to match the original scriptural text.
The Bible urges us to pay attention to the correctness of the doctrine. Usually, people do not bother their heads with doctrinal questions, but go along with the mass. Arthur Schopenhauer wrote in the early 1800s: There is no opinion, no matter how absurd, that people would not be willing to accept if they are convinced that it is generally accepted.
The Bible is a most difficult book to understand. Of course, there are many teachings that are simple to adopt but also there are verses that have led to doctrines completely unacceptable. I find myself disagreeing with the main churches, both catholic and protestant. I do not want to proclaim to be the teacher of the only truth, but I hope the reader himself will judge what is the truth taught by the Bible.
I hope the notes I have written for myself for further research can also help the reader to understand the word. I’m still searching for the truth and I may write about new topics or adjust my opinion if it proves to be well-grounded by the Bible’s testimony. In Greece, Berean near Thessaloniki were people who, after listening to the teachings of Paul, themselves made sure whether the scriptures were as Paul had taught. For such research, the Bible also encourages. In many homes there is a Bible, but has it ever been opened? Today, there are also a lot of tools available for us to study the Bible online. Church leaders may still see danger today in independent study of the Bible; people may change their minds. I am prepared to do so – if the word of the Bible proves it appropriate.
