Some number patterns in the bible taken from the seal of god ..
The number Eight points to 'resurrection', or a 'new beginning.'
One instance of this is found quite early in the Scripture. Genesis 7:13. 'In the selfsame day
entered Noah, and Shem, and Ham, and Japhetic, the sons of Noah, and Noah's wife, and the three
wives of his sons with them, into the ark, 'and they went forth from the ark, and of them was the
whole earth overspread.' Genesis 9:18-19.
Eight people were saved, and there is a new beginning, a new covenant between God and man.
Genesis 9:9-17. Here too, the ark can be seen as a type of Christ.
And there are other significant occurrences also.
Bethlehem of Judaea, the birthplace of Christ, is listed exactly eight times in the New
We can see this even in some material things, and, the tones of music well illustrate the matter,
for there are only seven whole tones in sound, the eighth is the 'oct' but actually the new beginning.
This is so with the days of the week, and particularly noticeable when we consider the Jewish
method of calculating the week, that is, from the first day to the seventh, or the Sabbath.
Obviously the day after the seventh is the eighth, and this is the day on which the Christian
meets in fellowship, the first day of the week, or the Lord's Day. The Resurrection Day. The
Resurrection of Christ, our Passover, can be seen as part of God's Plan when we look into this Feast
established thousands of years before His birth.
Christ died on the fourteenth day of the month and rose on the sixteenth, 2-8's.
There were forty days to His ascension, 5-8's.
This day, (the first day of the week, or the eighth day by Jewish reckoning), is mentioned eight
times in the New Testament.
Jesus said, John 11:25 . . . 'I am the Resurrection and the Life', and as eight signifies resurrection
would not God, if He were expressing truth in this number, weave this number into the name of
Him who is the Resurrection and the Life?
Let us see, and remember, whatever the letters of any word add up to, that is its value and no
one can make it anything different.
Mr. Payne wrote.
It is here we begin to uncover the thrilling truths which God had hidden in numerics.
And, while I affirm that, I again ask the reader, to enjoy the venture into Numerics, but, do not
let your interest in them draw you away from the more profitable search of the Scriptures.
I continue with Mr. Payne's words.
In the account of the birth of Christ in Matthew 1:21, the angel of the Lord said,. . . . 'And she
shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS.
It is wonderful to discover the letter values of Jesus in the Greek. It is 888, the most significant
number that could be put on paper.
Firstly because 3 signifies Divine Perfection, and also, because its factors, (37x8x3), are the
three most sublime numbers connected with Jesus and we will examine this further in the section,
the Word of God--37.
As we all know Jesus was called the 'Christ' and the gematria of Christ is 1,480, or 185-8's
