Hidden Sevens in the Bible

"Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me." (John 5:39)
The Bible has hidden messages which demonstrate an intricacy of design which testifies to a supernatural origin! The recurrence of the number seven - or an exact multiple of seven - is found throughout the Bible and is widely recognized. But there turns out to be much more below the surface. Dr. Ivan Panin devoted over 50 years of his life painstakingly exploring the numerical structure of the Scriptures...

This is just one example of what he discovered in the first 17 verses of Matthew Gospel:

The number of words which are nouns is exactly 56, or 7 x 8.

The Greek word "the" occurs most frequently in the passage: exactly 56 times, or 7 x 8. Also, the number of different forms in which the article "the" occurs is exactly 7.

In the first main section, the number of Greek vocabulary words used is 49, or 7 x 7.

Of these 49 words, the number of those beginning with a vowel is 28, or 7 x 4. The number of words beginning with a consonant is 21, or 7 x 3.

Of the 49 words, the number of words which occur more than once is 35, or 7 x 5. The number of words occurring only once is 14, or 7 x 2. The number of words which occur in only one form is exactly 42, or 7 x 6. The number of words appearing in more than one form is also 7.

The number of the 49 Greek vocabulary words which are nouns is 42, or 7 x 6. The number of words which are not nouns is 7. Of the nouns, 35 are proper names, or exactly 7 x 5. These 35 names are used 63 times, or 7 x 9. The number of male names is exactly 28, or x 4. These male names occur 56 times or 7 x 8. The number which are not male names is 7.

Three women are mentioned - Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth. The number of Greek letters in these three names is 14, 7 x 2.

The number of compound nouns is 7. The number of Greek letters in these 7 nouns is 49, or 7 x 7.

Only one city is named in this passage, Babylon, which in Greek contains exactly 7 letters.

And on it goes...

Furthermore, if we look at the numerical value, of the 72 vocabulary words in this Matthew Gospel, they add up to a numerical value of 42,364, or 7 x 6,052. Exactly. If one Greek letter was changed, this would not happen. The 72 words appear in 90 forms - some appear in more than one form. The numeric value of the 90 forms is 54,075, or 7 x 7,725. Exactly.

What are the chances?

For 2: 7 x 7= 49
For 3: 7 x 7 x 7= 343
For 4: 7 x 7 x 7 x 7= 2,401
For 5: 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7= 16,807
For 6: 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7= 117,649
For 7: 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7= 823,543
For 8: 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7= 5,764,801
For 9: 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7 x 7= 40,353,607

The discussion of the genealogy in Matthew detailed 14 features! Several of which were interdependent. The odds of a random text complying to only 9 heptadic constraints is over 40 million to one! If it took you 10 minutes per draft, and you worked 40 hours a week for 50 weeks per year, it would take over 3,000 years to accomplish this task by random trials!

If you thought that was amazing, what's even more amazing is that the same phenomena is found in Mark, Luke…and in the writings of John, James, Peter, Jude, and Paul!

In the 12 verse of Mark Gospel it has over 34 heptadic (sevenfold) features, which would seem to make their inclusion by human manual methods seem a bit difficult; [multiplied out it would be]:

54,116,956,037,952,111,668,959,660,849 to 1!

One million supercomputers, composing 400 million drafts per second, would require over 4 million years to complete that number! (That is with only 34 features. Panin has identified 75 [in these 12 verses]!)

There is no human explanation for this incredible and precise structure. It has all been supernaturally designed. See more here and here.
