The Amazing Word

John 1:1-4 tells us that Jesus is the “Word”…

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.”

Jesus, the “Word” is life! His words give life.

I want to share an amazing phenomenon here, discovered years ago by Periander A. Esplana, a Christian from Camarines Norte, Philippines. I read about it in G. A. Riplinger’s Hazardous Materials book. The examples shared further below were taken directly from this book, pages 1,181-1, 184.

We know that Jesus Christ is the Word. He also said, “I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and What thou seest, write in a book…” Rev. 1:11

Alpha and Omega are the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet. So here, Jesus is saying, he is not only “words“, he is “letters“.

Stay with me because this is just so awesome!

Example 1

This example is just for the FIRST VERSE and the LAST VERSE of the King James Bible.

“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” Gen. 1:1

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.” Rev. 22:21

Count the number of letters in the first verse of the KJB: __44__

Count the number of letters in the last verse of the KJB:  __44__

 

Count the number of vowels in the first verse of the KJB: __17__

Count the number of vowels in the last verse of the KJB:  __17__

 

Count the number of consonants in the first verse of the KJB: __27__

Count the number of consonants in the last verse of the KJB:  __27__

Example 2

One of the most important verses in the Bible is 1 John 5:7. It distinguishes the Christian religion from all false religions (The chapter ends saying, “This is the true God…”) This verse identifies the trinity and states that Jesus is God.

“For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost; and these three are one.” 1 John 5:7

Jesus is not only “the first and the last,” he is “in the midst” of the New Testament in 1 John 5:7 (Matt. 14:24, 25; 18:2; Luke 5:19, 6:8, 9;24:36 “Jesus himself stood in the midst.” John 8:9, 8:59, 18:19, “Jesus in the midst,” 20:19, 20:26.)

Count the number of letters in the first verse of the KJB:   44

Count the number of letters in the last verse of the KJB:  +44

Count the number of letters in 1 John 5:7 of the KJB:           88

When the letters in the first and last verse are totaled, they equal the same number of letters in 1 John 5:7.

Count the number of vowels in the first verse of the KJB:  17

Count the number of vowels in the last verse of the KJB: +17

Count the number of vowels in 1 John 5:7 of the KJB:         34

When the number of vowels in the first and last verse are totaled, they equal the number of vowels in 1 John 5:7.

Count the number of consonants in the first verse of the KJB: 27

Count the number of consonants in the last verse of the KJB: +27

Count the number of consonants in 1 John 5:7 in the KJB:       54

The number of consonants in the first and last verse equals the same number of consonants in 1 John 5:7.

Example 3

As if the fact that the first and last verses of the KJV Bible match identically were not enough, (and they also match 1 John 5:7), it gets more interesting.

First verse letters= 44

Last verse letters=44                               Total 88

First verse vowels=17

Last verse vowels= 17                              Total 34

First verse consonants= 27

Last verse consonants =27                    Total 54

First verse words= 10

Last verse words =12                  

Words in 1 John 5:7= 22                          Total 22

Therefore, the total letters, consonants, vowels, and words in 1 John 5:7 equal the total of those in “the first and last” verses in the Holy Bible.

John 11:40 says, “If thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God”

Do you have 1 John 5:7 in your Bible? If you aren’t reading a KJV, you don’t have 1 John 5:7 in your Bible.

Consider this. If God tells us that the very hairs of our heads are numbered (Luke 12:6-7) and that a sparrow doesn’t fall to the ground without His notice, that His Son is the Word, and the Alpha and Omega (letters!), how much more would God carefully preserve the most important tangible gift he’s left to us on this earth–His words of His Holy Bible?

Scholars today suggest that the Trinity of 1 John 5:7 does not belong in the Bible, in spite of manuscript evidence to the contrary. In spite of what we’ve seen here, which phenomenon only occurs when counting the letters of the King James version Bible.

  1. The study of “Bible Numerics” is a most fascinating one. Numbers have specific meanings in the Bible, and there are patterns to discover there as well. The numbers of letters, vowels, consonants, words, and phrases can provide helpful insight into interpretation of passages as well. The Hebrew Old Testament, Greek New Testament, and the King James Bible demonstrate numerical patterns too precise, too frequent, and too consistent to be mere random occurrences. There is definite design that shows up in the numerical structure of scripture, that speaks of a Master Designer – the Creator God who made all things, including the written words of the Bible.

    Both the Hebrew and Greek alphabets produce “gematria” – numerical equivalents that evidence order, design, and indicate meaning.

    While somewhat controversial to some, the whole “Bible codes” phenomenon is just another powerful evidence of God’s hand in the inspiration and preservation of scripture.

    So-called “unlucky” number 13, for example, is associated with “rebellion” and “evil” almost every time it shows up in the Bible.

    The number “666” associated with the anti-christ in Revelation 13 (there’s that number again) in verse 18 (6+6+6) now appears in subtle and blatant ways throughout modern American society – indicating we are living in the last days before Christ returns.

    I discovered the 666 in EVERY two-part bar code on everyday products over 20 years ago. It would be well nigh impossible to go to a supermarket or Wal-mart today without buying an item that has this number printed on it. It stands as a prominent number in Satanic literature, witchcraft, new age symbolism, rock & roll music, and of course, some new Bible versions and other books use the triple 6 in some stylized manner as a graphic on their covers. It appears in graffiti almost everywhere in the nation. It appears in thousands of subliminals in media photographs, movies, and video games, conditioning a generation for blind acceptance. Its prevalence in modern society was foretold 2,000 years ago in the Bible.

    Man’s days are “numbered” even as the hairs of his head. Mankind’s days were numbered in Noah’s day. Methuselah lived 963 years – the oldest man who ever lived on the face of the earth. His name means “when he is dead, it shall be sent.” Methuselah dies just before God sends the flood of Noah’s day to wipe out a world that wouldn’t listen to his warnings about the wickedness of man. God’s longsuffering in allowing Methuselah to live so long, indicates that God gave men a human clock to know when they had “run out of time” and judgment was nigh. Did anyone notice when Methuselah died? As in the days of Noah, so shall it be in the days of the coming of the Son of Man. Is anyone paying attention? Our world has repeated the same wickedness of Genesis 6, and is about to reap the consequences in the last days before Christ returns.

    “So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” (Psalm 90:12)

  2. Farmer John, your comment deserves a blog post of its own. Wow. And Psalm 90:12 perfectly applies. Two-part bar codes, huh? And I never knew that about the meaning behind Methusaleh’s name. I know as a Christian, I never thought about needing to be well versed in ancient pagan symbols/roots/beliefs in order to be alert to them emerging in Christian circles, in and on modern Bible versions, etc. Because how else are we to recognize evil as it filters in? So easily led astray, we sheep, huh.
