Amazing Bible

  2. 2. 1 SCIENCE AND THE BIBLE Is life on this earth a purposeless accident? Is life a result of a cosmic chance as claimed by so-called scientists? Whether all wonders, beauty, and order in the universe, is merely: an accident? Where do we come from? Where do we go? What is the purpose of this life? What is the answer for all these Questions? The answer is creation has a creator, as design in the universe implies a designer. Atheists, skeptics, & Gnostics who always talk what they do not know, engage in idle babble, collect information falsely & call their knowledge as rational knowledge. They are proud knowing nothing, but are obsessed with disputes & arguments over words. They deceive their own hearts by a strong delusion & believe false as truth & truth as false. BIBLE says that, “BECAUSE THE FOOLISHNESS OF GOD IS WISER THAN MEN AND THE WEAKNESS OF GOD IS STRONGER THAN MEN. FOR YOU SEE YOUR CALLING, BRETHERN, THAT NOT MANY WISE ACCORDING TO THE FLESH, NOT MANY MIGHTY, NOT MANY NOBLE, ARE CALLED. BUT GOD HAS CHOSEN THE FOOLISH THINGS OF THE WORLD TO PUT TO SHAME THE WISE AND GOD HAS CHOSEN THE WEAK THINGS OF THE WORLD TO PUT TO SHAME THE THINGS WHICH ARE MIGHTY”.(1cor 1:25.) The psalm 19:1 of the BIBLE states that “HEAVENS DECLARE THE GLORY OF GOD, AND THE FIRMAMENT SHOWS HIS HANDY WORK”. In Genesis 1:1-25, we read that how God created everything in the heavens and on earth. In genesis 1:26-27, we read that, “THEN GOD SAID, LET US MAKE MAN IN OUR OWN IMAGE, ACCORDING TO OUR OWN LIKENESS”. In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. These are the very first words of the BIBLE, which tells us of the beginning of the heavens and the earth. God who created them in the beginning
  3. 3. 2 means that he existed before the beginning and that the world, the heavens, the earth and everything in them were created by him. The mysteries, miracles, wonders, and secrets of the universe wrested in the bosom of God alone and he through the BIBLE gave all the answers to his men doubts and questions arising out, in every field of human enquiry. Some believe that the universe is a result of some inexplicable and unknown chance of combination of interacting forces. They honestly believe that billions of years ago there was a great explosion called big bang in the space that resulted in the formation of our universe. By finding the Age of Aquarius, astronomers say that the universe is 6 billions years old. Now where is that clock or what is that clock or what was that time machine: from which they measured that time? How absurd it is to believe some thing like that! We have heard of many explosions, and might have witnessed some. What do they produce? Do they produce beauty, design, order, or creation? They do not create or build anything, but they destroy everything. How can one get a printed newspaper, high lighting that day’s events, resulting out of a bomb explosion in the newspaper press? Are we to believe that an explosion organized letters, columns, spaces, and that set the power on to print the news paper high lighting that days events, like politics, sports, pictures and etc? Are we to believe in these scientists who take advantage, that universe cannot talk and it has no date stamp? Can scientists say any thing they like? If the big bang theory of Hoyle, 1949 is true, why the moons of Neptune and Uranus roil retrograde? Why the cosmic dust on our moon’s surface is only a half an inch? Scientists had calculated that our moon would receive an inch of cosmic dust every 10,000 years. But when men landed on moon their boot did not go half an
  4. 4. 3 inch inside even. C14, Carbon dating test can date substances only up to 2000 years. Now the scientists claim that they can date substances up to 7, 14,000 years by using Al 26 dating test. If as per scientists earth is billions of years old, why is Globe warming? Why so many rivers are drying? Why ice in North Pole is melting away and grass is growing? Why ice and snow have reduced on mountain tops, which is the source and origin of many rivers in this world? As per BIBLE our universe was created in 6 days, 6000 years ago. BIBLE speaks of creation of our earth (Gen 1:1), and destruction of our earth too (Isa 34:4, 2Ptr 3:10). The universe has purpose and design. There is beauty and order in it. How can life evolve from non-life? Can something come out of nothing? How wonderful it is to know and to believe that in the beginning there was God, who had always existed and that the eternal God, the creator of heaven and earth and whatsoever, that are in them. The earth spins itself to give day and night, tilted itself, so that we get seasons. As per bible, the biosphere owes its existence to God’s act of creation. The biosphere is defined as part of envelope surrounding the earth in which the life thrives and survives. Man like all other living creature, is a product of that, biosphere, which God created on the very first day. There are naturalists and evolutionists, who believe in what is called “a continuous creation”. Of course, by this they do not mean that something was made out of nothing, but rather, something shapely things, were made out of shapeless things. But this theory of continuous and progressive creation presupposes that each state of material world was preceded by a previous state. There must be a beginning, but what was that in the beginning? Where did that come from? How and when did that start evolving? They
  5. 5. 4 say that man evolved from Anthropoid Ape and Anthropoid Ape from Ape and Ape from Buban and Buban from Chimpanzee and Chimpanzee from Monkey, which had evolved from another lower state, and that from another lower state, and that from another and that from another. But the question is where did that first one come from, which the process of evolution began? Why Ape is still an Ape? Why monkey is still a monkey? Why monkey has not changed into something else? Why Ape or monkey could not talk or converse, while parrot and mina could talk like man. And why is man still a man, who was supposedly evolved from a state of monkey? Why is man not evolving into another being? HAS EVOLUTION COME TO AN END? If man has evolved from lower species, why man does not start life like lower species? Birds start to fly the moment it comes out of egg. Reptiles start hunting its prey the moment it comes out of egg. Why not man, if he has come from lower specie? As per scientists, life and mankind has been there from billions of years, then why there are no traces of evolution to next higher specie? Scientists now claim that man has evolved into intelligent specie. If that is true why scientist’s children are not scientists, musician’s children are not musicians and genius children are not genius? What is an answer for all these, by these self-styled so-called evolutionists? Why man and woman are still male and female? Why man cannot be a woman and woman a man? Why father has to be a husband and woman a wife? Why man cannot be a wife and a woman a husband? Darwin to convince the world and to become great had put all kinds of misleading questions. Example: Why giraffe has long neck? Why frog’s back legs are longer than front legs? Why man lost the tail? Why mammary glands are there in between legs in a cow or buffalo, while in man it is between shoulders? Why canines have long mammary glands stretching from hind legs to fore legs?
  6. 6. 5 Evolution theory is nonsense, however sophisticated it might appear in dress. The desire of these evolutionists, and the naturalists, is to explain the world without God and to use man as mere animal of labor. It is interesting to note animals have no idea of God at all. Persons who accept evolution theory have to accept themselves as animals and have to be atheists like animals. One cannot accept to Darwin’s conclusion and idea of God both, since they contradict each other. But most people, who accept Darwin’s theory of evolution, also accept to idea of God who thinks he influences daily life. These people neither know message of Darwin’s theory nor about God. They try to sail in two boats, with one leg in atheistic Darwin’s theory and other leg in theistic religion. Theory of evolution is destructive and it later became the foundation of Inhuman Communism, Nazism, fascism and capitalism, to treat divine man as an animal and justify use him as mere animal. Hitler was the one who greeted Darwin’s theory of evolution. Quoting Darwin he hailed that the German Aryans as racially superior and annihilated 6 million Jews as racially inferior. Today it is proved beyond doubt that Jews are fore runners in all fields of human enquiry, be it military or science or technology or medicine. Darwin’s theory has more questions than answers. Darwin’s theory is ridiculous and it was accepted during the industrial revolution Today science has opened up large dimensions of reason and thus brought us new insights. But in the joy at the extent of its discoveries, it tends to take away from us dimensions of reason that we still need. Today scientists denounce evolution theory. BIBLE is historical and scientific, greater than any book in existence. It is God’s book and his word. It has been spark, which has promoted numerous scientific advances. Speaking in the realm of sciences, even though BIBLE is not a book of science, it does deal with scientific principles that have been proved correct. True
  7. 7. 6 science and BIBLE agree, and do not conflict. Many of the scientific truths that have been discovered only in recent times were written in the BIBLE several thousand years ago. Many Jewish and Christian scientists attribute their source of scientific knowledge to the BIBLE. Science and technology is native and the natural born children of Christians and Jews alone. BIBLE makes Christian and Jewish scientists feel, that they are not alone, that is why all inventions have come from them alone. Spiritually, the BIBLE contains the word of God, the will of God, and his mind through the scripture to man. BIBLE is the greatest book ever to be delivered into the human hands. It is a book of the books, shinning gem of the ages, and inexhaustible. It has done more to change the course of human events than any other book ever printed. It is bromide of life and an x-ray of truth. It gives comfort to the dying and a compass to the living. Some of the authors were shepherds, some were kings, some were of great education, others men of formal education. Yet all wrote in such a harmony and unity that not a single contradiction has ever been found in their teachings. When scientists are asked to explain the destiny of galaxies, they answer that they will all be slowly be eliminated in millions of years. When asked about the destiny of man, they answer that man probably will have to leave this earth and find another civilization in another planet. When asked whether life is there on any other planet, they say that they are to be probed. Believing in these scientists, governments are spending billions of dollars, tax payers’ money, and sending manned and unmanned space crafts to nook and corner of our solar system. For thousands of years men had believed that the earth was flat and that the ship went too far off to sea, fall off the edge and are destroyed. Today we laugh at such a theory. Yet this belief was widely accepted throughout the world, as late as the days of
  8. 8. 7 Columbus, the year A.D.1492. It was not until Magellan first sailed around the world on ocean in A.D. 1522 that the earth roundness and that all the oceans are together was proved. As we go back to the scripture, Moses wrote in his book of Genesis that, “THEN GOD SAID, LET ALL OCEANS ON EARTH UNDER THE HEAVENS BE GATHERED TOGETHER INTO ONE PLACE AND LET DRY LAND APPEAR, AND IT WAS SO” (Gen 1:9F). Magellan had faith in the BIBLE and took the voyage on sea, believing that the BIBLE as truth and infallible. Magellan after the voyage came to the conclusion that earth is round and all the seas are together, but not the lands or mountains. Moses never went around the globe on sea. Then who revealed him to write this astounding fact? The first ship launched by Americans was in San Francisco in 1919. The ship was built on the laws of buoyancy. It was rock stable having perfect meta-center and its dimension was 300 ft X 50 ft X 30 ft. As we go back to the BIBLE, the first ship Noah built as per God’s commandment was 300 cubits X 50 cubits X 30 cubits. (Gen 6:13-22). Noah was no Mariner. Was it God’s purpose that after revealing that all the seas are together, that man should have a world wide voyage by the seas? Along side, as we turn back through the BIBLE, to the prophets, Isaiah 40:22, we read that, “IT IS HE WHO SITS ABOVE THE CIRCLE OF EARTH”, meaning earth as round. Moses lived in 3850 B.C.E. and Isaiah lived in 2350 B.C.E. Again in (proverbs 8:27), we read that, “WHEN HE PREPARED THE HEAVENS, I WAS THERE, WHEN HE DREW A CIRCLE ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH”. Who could have revealed them to write all these truths several centuries ago? Another example of BIBLE, which deals with is, the universal law of gravitation: For centuries it was believed that earth was held in a place by some great support on its outside. As Magellan sailed
  9. 9. 8 around, however he discovered nothing visible holds it in place. Thousands of years before this fact was accepted by the scientific world, Job in his book (Job 26:7), declared that “GOD STRECHED OUT THE NORTH OVER AN EMPTY SPACE, AND HE HANGS THE EARTH ON NOTHING”. Job was a shepherd and who gave him this kind of astounding astronomical knowledge? His book is full of astronomy having cosmic values. Till 16th century A.D., mankind had believed that Atlas, a Greek god, had carried the earth on his back. The coming of Jesus will be in the day–and in the night. In the passage 2 activities are in the night and 2 in the day. There is only one coming spoken of. At any given time part of the earth is covered by darkness and the other part by light. One half of the world has night, while other has day, at the same time (Luke17: 34- 36). Who reveled this to this gentile doctor? Later scientists also discovered that in the northern region there is a vast empty space, in which even most powerful telescopes have not been able to locate any celestial bodies. In every other direction, stars can be found. Prophet Job in his book wrote about star constellations visible during different seasons, which is valid even today. Job was a shepherd and did not go out of his own village. Who revealed him to write these terrestrial truths? Job was not an astronomer and there were no telescopes those days. Noble Laureate, William Fountain Murray, an admiral in the navy, “the path finder of the sea” and “the founder of science of oceanography”, was a firm believer of the BIBLE. Before Murray lived there were no charts of the sea and sailing lanes. One day he was ill, and he asked his son to read psalms. His attention became ever increasingly more and more, when his son read the (psalm 8:4), which read, “THE BIRDS OF THE AIR AND FISH OF THE SEA, THAT PASS THROUGH THE PATHS OF THE SEA”. Murray got the clue from the BIBLE and his unfinished work on oceanography was
  10. 10. 9 completed, and they are followed by sailors for the safety and smooth sailing of marine’s and sub-marines today. King David by inspiration wrote in psalms 3000 years earlier. The law of celestial universe is that whatever that takes birth, grows and dies and there is no exception to anything in this universe, be it plant life, animal life or celestial bodies. Everything in this world has entropy and everything comes to an end.Even astronomers say that stars which are born too perish some day by burning up. The dead star becomes a black hole and swallows up the neighboring living stars. They also say that our solar system together with earth also get burnt up some day. BIBLE in (2 peter 3:10), says “BUT THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME AS A THIEF IN THE NIGHT, IN WHICH HEAVENS WILL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS WILL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT: BOTH THE EARTH AND THE WORKS THAT ARE IN IT WILL BE BURNTUP”. The prophesy made by Peter 2000 years ago are coming true as we are witnessing the disappearance of snow on mountain tops, rivers drying up one by one, polar animals migrating or dying and the globe is warming. Who revealed this knowledge to this poor Galilean fisherman? Was Peter an astronomer? There is scientific fore knowledge on eclipses too. Till 18th century it was thought that shadow planets would swallow up Sun and Moon causing Eclipses. But GOD had revealed to Isaiah, the terrestrial truth several centuries ago. He wrote in his book that, “THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED IN ITS GOING FORTH; AND THE MOON WILL NOT CAUSE ITS LIGHT TO SHINE” (Isa13:10) meaning that moon would come in between the earth and sun, hence no light from the Sun to the earth, which is called total solar eclipse. How did Isaiah know about law of celestial mechanics, and who revealed it to him?
  11. 11. 10 Herbert Spencer, a known fashionable atheist once declared that science offers 5 basic principles for universal stability, as time, space, matter, force and motion. The first verse of BIBLE reveals these five principles. Gen 1:1, “IN THE BEGINNING (TIME), GOD CREATED HEAVENS (SPACE), AND THE EARTH (MATTER), AND THE SPIRIT OF GOD (FORCE), WAS HOVERING OVER THE FACE OF THE WATERS (MOTION)”. Everything Herbert Spencer had said had already been revealed several thousand years ago by Moses in his very first book: Genesis. Another latest discovery by Albert Einstein in the modern physics is about the fate of space, time, matter and motion in 4th dimensional space. Here Einstein talks about shrinkage of time with respect to space. No matter: no space, no time and no vector dimensions. Whatever Albert Einstein said and stated in his famous theory of relativity can be found in (2 ptr 3:8), which says, “BUT, BELOVED, DONOT FORGET THIS ONE THING, THAT WITH THE LORD ONE DAY IS AS A THOUSAND YEARS, AND A THOUSAND YEARS AS ONE DAY”. How did Peter know that the day of the earth and the day of the universe were different? How did he even know about the shrinkage of time in space in this universe? Peter was a Galilean fisherman lived his life in a remote corner of this world. To-day, there is no one who does not know about Radio and T.V: the entertaining gadgets. Both radio and T.V. works on the principles of electro-magnetism: a transmitter and a receiver gadget. As we return to the BIBLE in the book of Job 38:19-35, says that, “WHERE IS THE WAY TO THE DWELLING OF LIGHT? AND DARKNESS, WHERE IS ITS PLACE? CAN YOU SEND OUT LIGHTNINGS, THAT THEY MAY GO? AND SAY TO YOU, “HERE WE ARE!” Yes: Whatever Hertz, Marconi and Baird had laid down the theory and principles of transmission of electrical waves are already there in the book of Job. Job was an ordinary wayside shepherd had no schooling and did not go out of Israel. Who revealed him to write these principles of electronics?
  12. 12. 11 Atheists in their boastful bravado deny these truths. Apostle James the brother of the Lord Jesus Christ wrote in his canonical epistle (Jms 2:19), “AN ATHEIST DENIES, BUT DEVIL ADMITS”. Atheists complain that they cannot see him, and can’t prove him in the laboratories, or even see him through the telescopes. Atheists are weak, but their avarice is hard to satisfy. They are like moth seeking a wick light of the evening than broad daylight. They climb a molehill and claim that they have climbed a mountain hill. We know it is for a small fame and a cheap popularity. They are unwontedly educated beyond their brains. Their hearts are sick souls. Doctors and nurses are different. Those in that profession are working with the most astounding organism of the world. Human body is a complex biological, pathological and physical machine with precision. The complexity of the body and marvelous works that it accomplishes ought to cause each of them to believe in divine creation. BIBLE reveals, that “BLOOD IS THE LIFE OF THE BODY” (Lev 17:11). Truly it is. Why people look for blood donors when they want to save the patient, because blood is the seat of body-life. It brings life giving iron and oxygen and carries away the life destroying waste products. It is rare to come across doctors and nurses, who are atheists. God’s power and wisdom are displayed in nature. It is apparent that our universe is not limited to the physical realm and no doubt GOD is in control, which mortals cannot know. We do not want any human interpretation of GOD, because he who is born of earth talks about GOD at earth level. But atheists provoke questions, without certainty of any answer. They leave us at a point, when it is impossible for us to stop. Atheists try to find happiness in wine, woman, wealth, and fortune, but happiness cannot be found apart from GOD, and without him everything is meaningless.
  13. 13. 12 Man imitates God’s design and claims it as his own invention. Can man make an aircraft without it, looking like an eagle? Can man make a boat without, it looking like an external shell of Spathodia or donis reglia? Can man make a submarine without, it looking like a fish? These are only a few examples. God provides a proto type in nature for man to imitate and use it, because he loves him. The word UNIVERSE, which scientists and atheists use, come from the BIBLE, i.e. UNI + VERSE, UNI means first, and VERSE means word. What does BIBLE say? IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD, AND THE WORD WAS WITH GOD. HE WAS IN THE BEGINNING WITH GOD. ALL THINGS WERE MADE THROUGH HIM, AND WITHOUT HIM NOTHING WAS MADE THAT WAS MADE. (JN1:1-3). How the BIBLE writers knew about these things? Who revealed this super scientific knowledge? There is only one answer: - GOD REVEALED. Refusing to recognize his authority and follow his order, would take him to eternal condemnation. What are the achievements of so-called scientists, whose fashion is atheism? Unchecked by any authority they have out grown to the extent of destroying the world with their useless inventions. Statesmen, progressive scientists, and doctors are warning of impending disaster by them. The late Albert Einstein said that, “there is no defense in science against the weapons which can destroy civilization”. Late John F Kennedy said that, “together we shall live or together we shall perish in its flame”. The great powers are facing their last moments. Ours is an age of agnosticism and atheism, mixed with worst form of cynicism and self-hatred. The vast majority is skeptical of the existence of higher power called GOD. The BIBLE foretold this time of atheism on earth. The Old Testament prophets had foretold the exact time of God’s appearance on earth, yet people refused to believe in him. When he came, he was beaten, tortured, crucified,
  14. 14. 13 and killed. The ruler of the universe was judged and condemned to death. Of course GOD, the father resurrected him and took him back in to the heaven to judge the world now. All authority has been given to him now by the father. He is now sitting on the right hand side of the power. The Lord says in the BIBLE that, “Heaven is my throne, and earth is my footstool, Where is the house that you will build me? And where is the place of my rest?” (Isa 66:1). New Testament reveals of his second coming. The BIBLE speaks of signs before all these things happen. Mankind has rejected the BIBLE and its teachings. Mankind has reached the end of rope. The further he goes, the more destructive he becomes. Mankind has no solutions. Any attempt to bring change in these men is like serpent to repent. The BIBLE reveals, as how God will intervene in the worldly affairs to save his believers, baptized, and saved in his name. Yes, Jesus saves us, with his hidden nature of compassion. Called or not called, Jesus Son of God will visit his people again. Because he lives, we also live. He will not leave us as orphans. And that is his promise to his beloved disciples. So let us pray for his second coming. The Christian and the Jewish cosmic vision of this world and its realities are above narrow world vision of the gentile pagans. Saints. AMEN. Christianity took its birth, for saving mankind from eternal condemnation in Jerusalem, a smallest town in Israel. It became a spiritual conviction of Jewish Christians of Israel in spite of crucifixion. It became a national faith of Rome in spite of persecutions. It became a spiritual force of Europeans in spite of condemnation. It became world’s leading spiritualism (seekers of divine truth) amongst highly civilized people in spite of rejection and frequent attacks from the religionists. It is practiced in all countries, and in all continents, and in all races of mankind. It is more universal than regional. Today it is faith of highly civilized people like Europeans and Americans,
  15. 15. 14 who produced great inventors, discoverers, doctors, scientists, technocrats, and what not. Are they fools or mad to accept Jesus Christ as their redeemer? THE SECRET OF ITS GROWTH IS PERSECUTION, REJECTION AND CONDEMNATION BY OTHER RADICAL RELIGIONS. This vindicates the mighty hand of Christ working amongst his people and in his nations (Psalm: 112). Christians do not have any festival related or linked to the new moon or full moon (Gal 4: 9-12, Col 2: 14-17). They have no dress codes or external logos or religious uniforms to impress their fellowmen or others. Christianity is not a religion, but a spiritual way of life. Jesus represents Christians and all Christian nations. They have unquenchable thirst for freedom of people, all races, and all nations. All moderate people appreciate Christianity of their enlightened moderation. They are always God-wards and heaven-wards rather than to seek life and luxury on earth. They are always calm in the world, which has gone bad, mad, hysterical, tyrannical and cynical. They are taught to have no enemies and they pray for their enemies. They are transparent and preach openly, fulfilling the liberal openness of Christ. They dislike, people taking religious laws into their own hands, on behalf of their religious convictions. They say it is immortal God’s business to judge and punish, and not the business of dying mortals. Karl Marx wrote that, “Science and technology are the natural and native born children of Jews and Christians alone.” Many major fields of science were founded by the Christians. It is significant that the early pioneers in modern science were men of deep Christian faith. The scientists believed that “God declared that all he has created is good... therefore, God’s works are worthy of study.” The Christian faith aided the scientific approach of many of the original thinkers and shaped their scientific quest for truth.
  16. 16. 15 God gave the Christians the power and boldness of thought to tackle any problems in all fields of human enquiry. Here below are stories and inventions of most eminent scientists. Johnn Kepler was the founder of physical Astronomy. Kepler wrote, “ Since we, astronomers are priests of the highest God, in regard to the book of nature, it benefits us to be thoughtful, not of the glory of our minds, but rather, above all else, of the glory of God”. Robert Boyle is credited with being the father of modern chemistry. He was active in financially supporting the spread of message of Christ through missions and bible translations. John Ray was the father of English natural history, considered the greatest zoologist and botanist of his day. He wrote a book titled, “The wisdom of God manifested in the works of creation”. Isaac Newton, father of physics invented calculus, discovered the law of gravity and the law of motions, anticipated the law of energy conservation, developed the particle theory of light propagation and invented the reflecting telescope. He invented calculus. He firmly believed in Jesus Christ as his savior and the bible as the word of God and wrote many books on these subjects. He remained celibate as Disciples of Christ. Carolus Linnaeus was the father of biological taxonomy. His system of classification is still in use today. One of his main goals in systemizing the verities of living creatures was an attempt to delineate the original genesis classification of the “kinds”. He firmly believed in the genesis account as literal history.
  17. 17. 16 Micheal Faraday was one of the greatest physicists of all time, who developed fundamental concepts of electricity and magnetism, invented the electrical generator and made many contributions to the field of chemistry. He was active in the various ministries of the church, both in private and public and had abiding faith in the bible and in prayer. Charles Babbage was the founder of computer science. He developed information storage and retrieval systems and used punch cards for instruction and data sets in automated industrial controls. He was a Christian with strong convictions and wrote an important book defending the bible and the miracles. John Dolton was the father of atomic theory, which revolutionized chemistry. He was an orthodox, bible believing Christian. Matthew Mauray was the founder of oceanography. He beloved when psalms 8:8 talked about ‘paths in the sea’ and dedicated his life in charting such pathways in Atlantic and confirmed that seas did have paths. “The birds of the air follow the paths in the sea”. James Simpson discovered Chloroform and laid the foundation for anesthesiology. He said that his motivation to conduct research, which led to the discovery, was fascination in the book of genesis with Adam’s deep sleep during the time in which Eve was fashioned from his side. He said that his biggest discovery was finding Jesus Christ as savior. Gregor Mendel was the father of genetics. He had strong religious convictions and chose the life of a monk. He was a creationist and rejected Darwin’s ideas. Luis Pasteur was the first virologist, who invented vaccine for rabies and later to small pox and measles. He was a pastor of a
  18. 18. 17 church. His love for Christ and love for mankind was beyond any one. He wanted to be martyred like Christ and his disciples. Bernard Riemann developed concept of non-Euclidian geometry, which was used by Einstein in his development of the theory of relativity. He was a Christian with a desire to go into ministry, but his interest in mathematics side-tracked him. He apparently made several efforts to prove the validity of book of genesis, using mathematical principles. Joseph Clerk Maxwell developed a comprehensive theoretical and mathematical frame work for electromagnetic theory. Maxwell rejected the theory of evolution and wrote that God’s command to man to subdue earth, found in the first chapter of genesis, provided the personnel motivation to him for perusing his scientific work. He acknowledged a personal faith in Jesus Christ as lord and savior. Joseph Lister founded antiseptic surgical methods. Lister’s contributions have perhaps led to more lives being saved through modern medicine. He wrote, “I am a believer in the fundamental doctrines of Christianity”. William Mitchell Ramsay was among the greatest of all archeologists. He acquired “liberal’ theological beliefs during his days as a university student. However, as he began to make various archeological discoveries in Asia Minor, he began to see the archeology confirmed the accuracy of the bible and thus he became an ardent follower of Christianity. Werner Von Braun was the father of space science. He wrote, “The vast mysteries of the universe should only confirm our belief in the certainty of its creator. I find it as difficult to under-stand a scientist who does not acknowledge the presence of a superior
  19. 19. 18 rationality behind the existence of the universe, as it is to comprehend a theologian who would deny the advances of science. The more that the science advances, it advances towards the bible. The more modern and latest finding, the more it approaches closer to the bible. What an awesome God we have! With all this, Christian scientists do not boast at their colossal discoveries and inventions. Many Jewish and Christian scientists attribute their source of scientific knowledge to the bible. Bible makes a Jewish or Christian scientists feel, that they are not alone, that is why all inventions and discoveries have come from them alone. God Jesus gave the Christians: boldness to tackle worldly problems. Christianity is not a religion as people claim. Christianity means knowledge discoveries and inventions. God’s people means, absolute knowledge in every thing. A Christ follower means complete knowledge with an absolute power to change the world. Take physics and chemistry, it is full of only the Christian scientists. Take Engineering, it is only Christian scientists. Take medicine it is again only Christian scientists. Take any field; it is only but Christian scientists. Christians should own and defend their own men of inventions. Christians have no country barriers, because all are in Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female, for you are all one in Christ (Gal 3:28). All Christians are personnel property of Jesus Christ, since he has purchased us with his own blood (Acts 20:28). Then why can’t Christians feel proud, when every invention has come from them alone, from paper to plane? Periyar wrote that, “However fanatical a religionist may be he does not resent changes. He does not give up the benefit of scientific progress made by the Christians. No one has gone to wilderness rejecting progress by way of science saying that it is unacceptable to god and religion”. Rationalists, scientists, and
  20. 20. 19 technocrats thought that the advancement in science and technology would remove the religions from the mind of entire mankind. Instead, priests and their religions are all the more using science and technology, hijacking its believers. They can not survive without science and its technology. Christian cosmic vision of the world and its realities are above narrow world vision of the gentile pagans. The Bible and its commandments is the heart property of all Christians. So let our hearts, Praise Lord JESUS, king of kings and the lord of our universe, with our song voice of faith. You cannot massacre an idea and you cannot run tankers over hope. R. Reagan. In the words of Gamaliel, a Pharisee and a Sanhedrin member: “ And now I say to you, keep away from these men and let them alone; for if this is the plan or this work is of men, it will come to nothing; But if it is of God, you cannot overthrow it-lest you even be found to fight against God” Acts 5:38-39.

This was the promise of God to David in his Psalm 112: 9-10, “His heart is established; he will not be afraid, until he sees his desire upon his enemies. He has dispersed abroad, he has given to the poor, his righteousness endures forever; his horn will be exalted with honor. The wicked will see it and be grieved; he will gnash his teeth and melt away; the desire of the wicked shall perish. Christians are half brothers in solving worldly problems. Christians and their Christian nations with their discoveries and inventions, coupled with their research institutes, hospitals and schools, and along side with their induction of democratic setup like Army, Police, Media, Judiciary and Elections are the building blocks of modern civilized world.
  28. 28. 27 NUMERIC TRUTH FROM THE BIBLE There are number of facts which mathematically prove that the BIBLE was not written by the human beings alone. It is supernatural, God inspired and God given book. The discoveries are facts of importance and they would indeed baffle and confound atheists and agnostics. There are facts that cause skeptics and modernistic thinkers to accept, that BIBLE as God inspired book. This article helps one to appreciate the beauty of numerical and structural construction in the BIBLE in CYCLES OF SEVEN by God. All Jews know that God gave their scripture in Hebrew. All Muslims know that their scripture is in Arabic. Every Hindu knows that their scripture is in Sanskrit. But very few Christians know that God gave their scriptures in Hebrew and in Greek. This numeric beauty is in original Hebrew and Greek texts alone. The numerical features construction not only increases in arithmetical progression, but in geometric progression, for each paragraph is designed to develop constantly fixed numeric relations to the material that precedes and follows it. Every additional letter, word, and sentence makes the matter tremendously more complicated and comprehensive. These sevens are so deeply concealed that special searching and special counting is necessary in order to find them. They occur in the very structure of every paragraph in the entire BIBLE, not in the paragraphs only, but often in the many sub- divisions of paragraphs. When God gives it is always special and complex and it is his way, like sky looks blue although it is not blue and earth does not seem to rotate although it does. The BIBLE declares that “all scripture is given by the inspiration of God” (II Tim 3:16). The BIBLE claims that the writers of scripture wrote, not of their own will, but they were moved by the power of Holy Spirit of God. The prophets who wrote the BIBLE spoke from God, being borne on by the
  29. 29. 28 power of Holy Spirit. II Peter 1:21 declares that the scripture came, “not by the will of man, but by the holy men of God”. Luke 1:70, states that, “God spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets”. II Sam. 23:1-2, declares that, “the spirit of the lord spake by me and his word was on my tongue”. God said to Moses, “you shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall you diminish from it” (Deut 4:2). A death penalty was pronounced upon the prophets who add any of his own words, into the BIBLE, (Deut.18:10). Revelation 23:18-19, also state the very same commandment of God. The prophets merely recorded the words they received from God. The early Christians in Berea regarded BIBLE as God’s word and checked every thing against the scripture and diligently listened to their preachers. Greek philosophers likewise praised those who listened attentively. Tradition records apostle Paul addressed the Greek senators in their hall of wisdom, the word of God Jesus. BIBLE contains two main divisions, the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament of 39 books, written in Hebrew, is a testimony of “Paradise lost” through Adam, and the New testament of 27 books, written in Greek, is a testimony of “Paradise gained“, through Jesus the only son of God. Both languages are regarded as God’s spoken languages, given first to the Jews and later to the Gentiles. BIBLE was never written by the prophets or apostles in English or Latin or Arabic. While BIBLE is God’s creation with no chapters or verses, for Bible is to be read wholly and fully, Chapters and Verses in it came later by so-called BIBLE scholars. The result, Christian denominations arose. Each denomination quotes its own favorite chapters and verses from the book to defend their point of view and existence. Paul wrote to Timothy, foreseeing this and gave prophesy that, “If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words…..he is proud knowing nothing, but is
  30. 30. 29 obsessed with disputes and argument over words from which come envy, strife..……” The most popular English translation of the BIBLE, the King James Version, was first published in 1611 A.D. by 47 of the world great scholars. The second version is the revised version translated in 1885 A.D., by 101 prominent scholars from England and America. For the convenience of BIBLE study, the BIBLE was divided into chapters in 1250 A.D. by Hugo and verses in 1551 A.D. by Sir Robert Stephens. The BIBLE since then has 1189 Chapters (OT 929 + NT 260) and 31173 (OT 23214 + NT 7959) verses. The shortest verse in the BIBLE is John 11:35. But, some dispute that it is the last word of BIBLE. “AMEN”. The longest verse is Esther 8:9. The shortest psalm is psalm 117 and the longest psalm is psalm 119. The 66 books of the BIBLE were written by about 40 different authors, who were shepherds, kings, captives in foreign lands, educated and uneducated. The books were written by those who spoke different languages, and lived in different periods, and lived in different regions. Yet all wrote in such a harmony and unity that not a single contradiction has been ever found in their writings. In the Old Testament times God conversed with Adam in Hebrew, and Adam named all living and non-living things in Hebrew (Gen2:19). God also spoke to Moses in Hebrew and gave him Ten Commandments for the Israelites to follow and keep. As centuries passed by, with the Jewish population expanding to the Greek areas (Hellenistic areas) and with the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as prophesied God gave them a new commandment in Greek, for them to follow and observe. Christianity was founded by God’s apostles and disciples and Christ is the central person in the plan of salvation. From Genesis to Revelation the scheme of redemption progresses from “someone is coming” to “someone has come” to “someone will come again”. It is impossible for chance or
  31. 31. 30 even deliberate fraud to account for this magnificent unity. Inspiration of God is the only explanation. The BIBLICAL prophesy and its fulfillment is the convincing evidences that BIBLE is GOD’S WORD. Many of the discovered facts have a direct bearing on the unusual characteristics of these languages. A comparison is made with the English language in order that the peculiarity of the Hebrew and Greek language might be clearly understood. In English language there are 26 letters (sounds) in the alphabet, a, b, c, d, e, f, g, etc. In addition to these 26 letters 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0, are used. These figures were once the Arabic symbols, used by them to represent planets, for the purpose of astrology. English people later used it to express “numbers”. I.e. 1 = 1, 2 = 1+1, 3 = 1+1+1, 4 = 1+1+1+1, and etc. The Hebrew and Greek languages do not have a system like this. These languages have only the letters of their alphabets, but do not have additional symbols or figures such as 1, 2, 3, 4, etc, which express numbers. Instead of using special figures, the Hebrew and Greek languages use their own letters of their alphabets to express or represent numbers. Thus the letters of their alphabets served a two fold purpose. They were used to represent alphabetical sounds or express numbers. Every letter of the Hebrew and Greek alphabets represents a certain “number”. In other words, each letter is assigned a “NUMERIC VALUE”. This is the peculiar characteristic of these languages. The Hebrew alphabet has 22 letters (sounds) and the Greek alphabet 24 letters (sounds). Below are listed the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet. Beside each letter is its sound and “NUMERIC VALUE”- the “number” which it represents. Hebrew has only capital letters.

Note 2: There was no alphabet for 6 and 90. But the Prophets were secretly using “S” for 6, and “  ” for 90. Each letter represents a certain “Number” and that will be its N.V. It is observed that a maze of amazing beauty of numbers is mysteriously hidden beneath, the very surface of the original BIBLE text. The original BIBLE text means, the Hebrew and the Greek text of the BIBLE alone, and not the Latin or English translated texts or versions. At best the English translation has come to us as a translated text, as far as possible, but the restrictions of grammar and usage has taken away the original aroma of Hebrew and Greek texts. The BIBLE became five times bigger in English translation and three times bigger in Latin translation. Of course there is no loss of God’s message of abundance grace and God’s plan of wonderful salvation for mankind by these translated texts. For example, the first verse of the gospel according to John in the Greek, “in the beginning was the word and the word was with (the) God, and the word was God”. The question comes to our minds as, why does the Greek word ‘THE’ precede the word ‘GOD’ in one case, but not in the other? When we take an account of ‘GOD’ and ‘THE GOD’ in all the passages, we will be struck with numeric relation between them. This numeric beauty is not in Latin or English translation of the BIBLE.
  34. 34. 33 There are some examples; The shortest verse in the BIBLE is John 11:35. The Greek sentence “EDAKRUSEN O’ IESOUS” is translated as “WEPT THE JESUS”. There are six letters in the Greek word “ιησους”, but only five letters in the English translation. There are sixteen letters in the Greek text, but only nine letters in the English translation. In Greek : “εδακρυσεν ο ιησους”. In English: “Wept the Jesus”. Num Val of words: “785 + 70 + 888” = 1743. (249X7). The numeric Value of JESUS in Greek: “ιησους “. Ι η σ ο υ ς Total. 10 8 200 70 400 200 888. The numeric Value of SATAN in Greek: “χξS “. Χ ξ S Total. 600 60 6 666. The numeric Value of NERON KAISER. In Greek it is written as Neron Kaiser. In Hebrew it is written as Neron Kesar: i.e. ‫.נךוכ קםך‬ n, Nun ( ‫05 = ) נ‬ k, Keph ( ‫)ק‬ = 100 r, Resh ( ‫002 = ) ך‬ s, Samech ( ‫= ) ם‬ 60 v, Vau ( ‫=)ו‬ 6 r, Resh ( ‫002 = ) ך‬ n, Nun ( ‫05 = ) נ‬ Total 306 Total 360 = 666 It was a disguise number for the name of “NERON CEASAR” (666) calculated and attributed to SATAN. The TOTAL NUMERIC VALUE of SATAN and NERON CEASAR is SAME and it is “666”. During I st century, the apostles had witnessed the fury of Nero Caesar, who was no better than that of Satan, who had got beheaded Apostle Paul and had got killed the early Christians in Roman COLOSEUM for their
  35. 35. 34 faith in the resurrected Christ, the LORD of the UNIVERSE. Apostle John expressed the secret name of Nero by adding the numeric value contained in his name, taken from Hebrew language. (Rev 13:18). King Solomon received 666 talents of gold from Sheba. He became an idolater. The result the temple was destroyed by Romans later and God never gave him a prophetic vision to foresee Jesus. 1king 10:14, God also took away the ark of covenant to heaven. Rev 11:19. Are number and its numeric value in the structure of BIBLE so important? - The answer is YES. “He counted the number of stars” –Psalm 147: 4. “He bringeth out their host by numbers”- Isa 40: 26. “He has measured the waters in hallow of his hand and meted out the heaven with a space and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure and weighed the mountains in scales, and hills in balance”- Isa 40:12. “The very hairs of your head are all numbered”- Matt 10:30. When God has counted the very hairs of your head, has he not counted the words and letters of his scripture? It is only in Hebrew and Greek text of the BIBLE, that the letters, words, sentences, paragraphs, passages, and chapters, have the beauty of numbers and numeric value. The 7’s are strangely out of the sight of ordinary Hebrew and Greek readers. The number 7 is mysteriously hidden every- where, all over, both in the world, heaven and the BIBLE. One can very well conclude that, there is one mind behind all, and that mind is God’s. Number 7 has been his basic unitary brick of all his creation. From the first book “Genesis” to his last book “Revelation”, 7is by far the outstanding number. Where there is 7, there is heaven and where there is heaven there is 7. Heaven and 7 are inseparable. 7 is a numeric expression of the BIBLE and heaven. The CREATOR of this universe and the AUTHOR of the BIBLE is one and the same.
  36. 36. 35 God is a great mathematician of all creations. His mathe- matical signature is seen and felt beneath all his creation. The number 7 is God’s specialty and its meaning is associ- ated with perfection and completeness. God’s presence is felt by the presence of 7 both in this universe and in the BIBLE. Why is number 7 so important to son of God JESUS in all his creations and in his scripture? THE WORLD OF SEVEN God created the world in 7 days and that is his foundation of creating complexities of cycles of 7 in his earthly creations like color, music, pH of water, seven seas, gestation periods etc and in his scripture: THE BIBLE. From the beginning of time, the number 7 has always meant perfection and completion. God raised his creation, with the number 7. The number 7 has stabilizing raising qualities. The number 7 is stamped upon all of God’s work, and his great mathematical laws govern the activities of the entire universe. For instance, there are 7 colors in a ray of light. In the sphere of music there are 7 whole tones in the scale. God segmented the week into 7 distinct days. In the night sky no one will miss to see the 7 great star constellation. On earth all the 7 seas are together making continent to continent navigation possible. The pH of water is 7 which cover ¾ of the surface of earth. There are 7 days a week and God segmented the week into 7 distinct days. There are 7 Wonders of the World. Each lunar period lasts 7 days from the crescent, half, gibbous, and full/new moon taking lunar month to 28 days (7X4). In chemistry it is well known that two substances combine only when two molecular mathematical proportions only unite in Chemical wedding. INDEED SEVEN IS STAMPED UPON PHYSIOLOGY TOO. While God commanded man’s rest to be 7th day, He declared man’s years to be: 3 score and 10, (7X10). Every 7 years our body renews. There are 7 stages of life. There are 7 types of joints in human beings like 1) ball and socket 2) hinge joint 3) saddle joint 4) ellipsoidal joint 5) pivot joint 6) gliding joint
  37. 37. 36 7) fixed joint. There are 14 (7X2) phalanges in each of our palm fingers. In the field of physiology man’s pulse beat slower every 7th day, whether he is sick or well. In certain diseases, the 7th, 14th, and 21st are critical days. In the sphere of the gestation period, the hare and rat is 28 (7X4) days, the cat is 56 (7X8) days, the dog is 63 (7X9) days, the lion is 98 (7X14) days, the sheep is 147 (7X21) days, the hen is 21 (7X3) days, the duck is 28 (7X4) days. The woman’s menstrual cycle is 28 days (7x 4) and the period of gestation of woman is 280 (7X40) days. All these gestation periods are divisible by 7. To most pregnant women, the 7th month of pregnancy, is crucial. GOD VERY OFTEN WORKS IN CYCLES OF 7’s IN THIS WORLD. Hippocrates held the number 7, through its hidden nature maintains everything in being. It disperses life and movement. It influences even celestial laws and mechanics of heavenly bodies. In the field of arithmetic, 7 is an indivisible supreme prime number. Many complicated calculations can easily be done by shortest steps using number 7 and its application techniques. All these reveal that nature does not operate by chance, but by a calculated design. There is a fundamental arithmetical foundation which is 7. The unified field theory, propounded by Albert Einstein defines space-time continum as the fourth dimension. He does not rule out the possibility of fourth, fifth, sixth and the 7th dimensional space. According to him, the 7th dimension is the final frontier in which, our expanding universe exists. Imagine! How magnanimous is to live in this mysterious infinite universe. Can scientists provide an answer? No. Only GOD can provide answer through the Scripture. THE NUMBER SEVEN IN THE BIBLE The Sabbath was the 7th day. In acts the word “Sabbath” is repeated 84 (12x7) times. In Egypt there were 7 years of plenty and 7 years of famine. Sabbatical year was every 7th
  38. 38. 37 year. Jericho city was captured with 7 priests, who had 7 trumpets, and walked around the city walls 7 times. Solomon took 7 years to build the temple, then for 7 days he gave the sacrifice of offerings and on the 7th day glory of God came. In 2 King 5, Elisha instructs Naaman to wash 7 times in the Jordan River to cure leprosy. In the book of REVELATION, the number 7 is outstanding, 7 churches, 7 lamp stands, 7 seals, 7 trumpets, 7 stars, 7 spirits, 7 dooms are mentioned. In all, the number 7 occurs more than fifty times in the book of revelation. There are only 7 miracles in the gospel according to John. All the miracles are rich in symbolism. Jesus transfigured as Moses and Elijah on a high mountain, before Peter, James and John after six days, i.e. on the 7 th day. (Matthew 17: 1-13). There are 7 Doctrines mentioned in the book of Ephesians, Eph 4: 4-6 by Paul:- 1) One body 2) One spirit 3) One hope 4) One Lord 5) One faith 6) One baptism 7) One God. The 12 disciples (i.e. leaving Judah) of Jesus come from 7 families. There are 8 barren women, but only 7 were blessed to conceive after their due age 1) Sarah 2) Rebecca 3) Rachel 4) Manoah’s wife 5) The Shuna--mmite woman 6) Hannah 7) Elizabeth. Michael, David’s wife, did not conceive, for she laughed at, almost nudity of David while dancing, in bringing the ark of covenant box. It was God’s curse on her. In the gospel of John, the son of noble man, who was suffering from fever, left him at the 7th hour (Jn 4:52). All the numbers expressed by John in his gospel is divisible by 7, i.e., 70 (7X10) A.D. 42 (7X6) months, 1260 (7X180) days. There are 7 divisions in the Lord’s Prayer. Jesus fed 5000 with 7 items: 2 fish and 5 loaves of bread. Blood was sprinkled 7 times on the Ark of the Covenant. Moses marries Zipporah, one of the 7 daughters of Jethro. Moses ties 7 rounds of red thread on the wrist of Zipporah. Enoch, the 7th from Adam was taken up by God himself (Gen 5:24, Jude 14). 7 Greek helpers, who were men of reputation, were appointed by twelve Disciples of Christ to serve at the table,
  39. 39. 38 when the Christians were multiplying (Acts 6:3). Jesus appears to the 7 disciples (Jn 21:2). Jesus predicts his death 14 (7X2) times. Jesus Christ spoke 7 words from the cross. There are only 7 parables in the whole of the Old Testament, antecedents to Jesus’ parables, namely, 1) Nathan’s parable (2 Sam 12: 1-10), 2) Woman from Tekoa’s ( 2 Sam 14: 5-20), 3) Parable condemning Ahab (1 king 20: 35-40), 4) Song of the vineyard ( Isa 5: 1-7), 5) Eagles and the vine ( Ezek 17: 2- 10), 6) The lioness and cubs (Ezek 19:2-9), 7) Vine ( Ezek 19: 10-14). Jacob had 7 righteous sons from his spiritual wives. Jesus had righteous disciples from 7 families. Samson, the strongest man who lived on this earth, had strength in 7 locks of hair on his head. (Judges 16:19). Why so many CYCLES OF SEVENS throughout the BIBLE. Coming down to the practices of practical life, to combat sterility, Moroccan women roll their sashes 7 times around a trunk tree and leave them there for 7 days. To avoid drowning in the sea, Icelanders going for the first dip of the day start letting 7 waves pass over their heads. In India, Hindu bride and the bridegroom take 7 steps around the fire, an age old custom of marriage, for eternal family bondage. The word “Baptized“ is repeated 35 times, and “Follow me” is repeated 14 times in the New testament. GOD IN BIBLE TOO WORKS IN CYCLES OF SEVENS. So what is the conclusion? THE CREATOR OF THIS WORLD AND THE CREATOR OF BIBLE IS ONE AND THE SAME. 7 symbolizes the BIBLE, the salvation of mankind, the word, the world, the heaven, Universal stability, all creation having full completeness with absolute perfection. The number 7 is indivisible and hence cannot be broken. Christ always said that the scripture cannot be broken, hinting about the mysterious number 7 hidden. Jesus said in Matthew 5:18, Jn 19:35, that not a single ‘jot’ or smallest mark ‘title’, would pass from the law till all be fulfilled. God controlled every word and number of its occurrences in various books, thus formed words of combinations of words of equal value to reveal his authority in the form of languages of numbers.
  40. 40. 39 It is discovered that thousands of these 7 are mysteriously hidden in the very structure of the text. Some of the 7 are strangely hidden in the unusual system of numbers in the numeric value of the Hebrew and the Greek letters, words, sentences, paragraphs, and passages of text, while others are hidden in other remarkable and peculiar ways. The finding of cycles of sevens need not be of one stereo type. It varies from verses to verses, paragraphs to paragraphs, books to books. It goes complex as we read from Geneses to revelation. Since each letter stands for a number, it is clear that a change in even a single letter changes the numeric value of the entire passage. Any addition or omission to the original texts destroys many features of a perfect design given to us by God. The most famous method adopted by Jesus in his teachings was the parable. It is an earthly story with a heavenly meaning. Parable in Greek means comparison. Every parable has different levels of meaning, one to his devoted followers, and other to disarm his opponents. But as far as numbers are concerned, the mysterious number 7 is the ultimate hidden numerical parable of the BIBLE and that is the strong foundation. It is like binary 0’s and 1’s in the field of computers, which lies beneath. In a simple example, it is like train moving on rails or jets going on air or ship sailing on water. GENESIS, Chp 1, Verse 1. (Birth of the heaven and the earth) The Hebrew is written and read from right to left. I.e. Backwards.

Feature 16:- The N.V. of the rest of the remaining words 3+41+401++45+406 = 896 (7X128). The maze of amazing numeric features of 7 is indeed beyond the view of mere readers of the Hebrew BIBLE text. They are mysteriously hidden beneath the surface of the text. They can be discovered only by keen searching and calculations. The features pointed out are numeric values based on grammar. According to
  42. 42. 41 “Good news bible”, Galatians 3:16, “Now God made promises to Abraham and to his descendant”. The scripture does not use plural but singular. “Descendant” meaning one person only, namely “CHRIST”. The purpose of Grammar is to bring beauty to a language by restricting the flow of spoken or written language with the rules and regulations. MATTHEW, Chapter 1, Verse 1-17.

As one goes progressively by book by book and to the last book, revelation, complexity of numeric design is progressively most amazing. The Greek text of Westcott and Hort is used, the only original, natural and neutral BIBLE, for the authors had taken all precautions in compiling. There are 72 Greek vocabulary words in these 17 verses. Vocabulary words means number of words used. For example, the word ‘and’ is one word, although it is used several times in the passage. In short the number of vocabulary words, or the number of different words used in a passage, is thus not the same as the total number of words used in a passage. Feature 1:- The N.V. of these 72 Greek vocabulary words is 42364, (7X6052). Feature 2:- These 72 Greek vocabulary words occur in 90 forms. The N.V. of the 90 forms is 54075, (7X7725).

Feature11:- Of these 266 letters the number of consonants is 126, (7X18). Feature12:- Of the 49 Greek vocabulary words in the 11 verses the number of Words which occur more than once is exactly 35, (7X5). Feature13:- The number of words which occur only once is 14, (7X2). Feature14:- Of the 49 words, the words which appear in only one form is exactly 42, (7X6). Feature15:- The number which appears in more than one form is 7. Feature16:- Out of 49 Greek vocabulary words, the number of nouns is exactly 42, (7X6). Feature17:- Out of 49 Greek vocabulary words, the number which are not noun is, 7. Feature18:- Of the 42 nouns, the proper name is 35, (7X5). Feature19:- Of the 42 nouns, the common noun is 7. Feature20:- Of the seven common nouns, the number of Greek letters is 49, (7X7). Feature21:- The number of times the 35 proper nouns occur is exactly 63, (7X9). Feature22:- Of the 35 proper names in 11 verses, the number of male names are exactly 28, (7X4).

The Number of Greek letters in these names is 14, (7X2). Θαμαρ, ραχαβ, ρουθ. Feature26:- Only one city is mentioned, Babylon, the number of Greek letters In this word are exactly 7. βαβυλων. Feature27:- Fourteen generations are mentioned thrice, which is divisible by 7. (Matt 1:17).
  45. 45. 44 The second section too, verses 12-17 has equally a profound numeric features of its own. The very structure of the passage is literally saturated with phenomenal occurrences of the number 7. The structural characteristic by Matthew, are the names in the list are gathered into three groups of 14, with significant historical events placed at their junctures. The structure as a mnemonic device, based on the number 14 since it represents the numeric value of David’s name in Hebrew. David ( ‫.41 = 4+6+4 = )ד ו ד‬ MATTHEW, Chp 1, Vrs 18-25.

For E.g., the number of Greek vocabulary words in the I st six verses is 56, which is exactly divisible by 7, (7X8). There are three speeches 1) Herod speaks 2) Wise men speak 3) The Angel speaks. Each speech shows an amazing numeric features in itself, yet each forms only part of the chapter, which as a whole has phenomenal features of its own. Each division alone shows the same numeric of its own. Each division alone shows the same numeric phenomena found in the chapter as a whole. It is also interesting to note, that more than 100 numeric features are strangely hidden beneath the surface of passages which consist of no more than 175 words. MARK, Chapter 1, Verses 1-8.
