Hidden Proof in the Bible - Part 3

For centuries, hundreds of Bible scholars have believed and taught that the numbers
mentioned openly in the Bible text must certainly contain some sort of deeper symbolic or significance—they are not in the Bible haphazardly or by chance. What that means is that every number in the Bible—used in a historical and quantitative sense—also contains a deliberate SYMBOLIC function that was designed to express something more. What you're about to see proves that this is indeed the case.


In the Bible, the Old Testament was written in ancient Hebrew and the New Testament in Greek. Now not only does each letter in the Hebrew and Greek alphabets have a standard and fixed number or numeric value attached to it, but this same principle can be applied to words, and even complete thoughts and sentences have number values. God specifically structured the grammar of the Hebrew and Greek languages so that all of the number patterns could fit and flow together!

Throughout the Bible, multiple factors and clustering is so consistent in words and phrases, that it boggles the mind. The major fact is that it happens so regularly, as to defy any mathematical odds. In other words, if God did not place this phenomenon into the text, then the numerical values for words and phrases would only produce "random" results.

Multiple factors - everything operates on the principle of multiples and multiple structures—based upon prime numbers and various factor combinations.

Clustering - is the concept where numbers cluster around these large multiples (falling within the range of one or two numbers surrounding the large multiple factors).


Is there perhaps a verse in the Bible that tells us there exists any such phenomenon as multiple factors and clusters? 
In the book of Revelation, chapter 13, it states, "Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of man, and its number is 666" (Rev 13:18). Why would the Bible tell us to do something (such as calculate), if it were not possible? The Author would have to first give us the key or the code if He expected us to carry out His command.

The patterns only appear with words and phrases having a common theological meaning or relationship! Here are just two examples of multiple factors and clustering, out of the thousands that exist...

Multiple Factors

One of the more fascinating passages of Scripture is in John chapter 21, wherein the
disciples go fishing shortly after the resurrection of Jesus.

"And Simon Peter went up and drew the net to land, full of great fishes, one hundred and fifty-three; and although there were so many, the net was not torn." (John 21:11)

This number 153 has taxed the ingenuity and minds of some of the greatest Bible students
over the centuries. Many have felt that there must be something deeply significant and
important about this number in a symbolic sense. Why would the number of fishes caught be such a specific and strange number? Why not a nice even round number, like 100 or 150? Why did someone take the time to even count the exact number of fishes in the first place? Why is this number mentioned specifically in the Bible?

What they've discovered, is that virtually all the references to do with fishes and fishing,
etc. were coming out with multiples not only of 153, but also with the number 170—virtually
everything!

Why these two numbers?
The largest prime number within the number 153 is 17 (17 x 9 = 153); 153 also
exhibits some unique and fascinating characteristics, one of which is the fact that all the numbers from 1 to 17 add up to 153.

1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10+11+12+13+14+15+16+17 = 153

EVERY reference to fishes and fishing in the entire Bible, has these two numbers, 153 and 17, positively PERVASIVE. Multiples of 153, 170, and 289 (17 x 17), saturated virtually every major reference to this topic; but 17 by itself is the KEY NUMBER for fishes and fishing in the Bible. For example:

Listed above are 30 examples. The important thing to realize in all of this, is the fact that here there is a deliberate and inherent structure operating on the 153/170 principle, that occurs way beyond chance expectation or randomness. This can't be disproved by any skeptic, this is undeniable proof for God.

Clustering

The number 150 was shown to have significance relative to the topic of light. The number 150 (along with 100 and 225) literally saturates most all major passages in scripture to do with this topic or concept. Examining the phrase from John 3:19, we find this simple pattern emerge.

THAT LIGHT HAS COME INTO WORLD 3452 (150 x 23 + 2)
LIGHT HAS COME INTO WORLD 2702 (150 x 18 + 2)
THAT LIGHT 2250 (150 x 15)
LIGHT 1500 (150 x 10)
LIGHT HAS COME INTO 2252 (150 x 15 + 2)
COME INTO 752 (150 x 3 + 2)
COME INTO WORLD 1202 (150 x 8 + 2)
WORLD 450 (150 x 3)

Thus in this one phrase of only four words (with one conjunction and two articles), there
exist eight features that cluster around multiples of the number 150. So many multiples
of 150 would be impossible without God's flexibility mechanism of the articles and
conjunction.

The probability or mathematical chance of this phrase containing eight multiples of 150, is very unlikely. But that is just the beginning. There are at least a dozen other apparent patterns in this phrase, clustering around other large key numbers.

Summary:
  1. The patterns or phenomenon only appear within the Bible text and in no other work of literature, in any language, ever written (apparently) in the history of mankind.
  2. The patterns only appear with the numerical values to the letters of historical record (there are 403 septillion random permutations possible, none of which can work).
  3. Yet even in the Bible and with the proper numerical values to the letters—the patterns only appear with words and phrases having a common theological meaning or relationship. Anything else only produces randomness.
The third item above eliminates any grammatical or natural cause explanation for the results, and can only prove a divine/supernatural element as the logical explanation.

These are simply a sampling among literally thousands of patterns that exist—they have been extracted almost randomly from hundreds of comprehensive studies.
