Numbers In The Word Of God

A practical guide: revised and updated form my original writing, in 1983.

To my wife Ginger, who constantly inspires me that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Many thanks to Col. H. Speed Wilson (U.S.M.C. Ret.), for his assistance in acquiring much of the resource material used in the preparation of this work, and who was the original inspiration for it.

It should be noted that attaching special mystical meaning to words, word groups, and phrases in the Bible, when not clearly indicated in the scripture, has led to repudiation of Bible numerics study. It is the opinion of this author that mystical interpretation of the Bible by numerics, since it is open to personal interpretation, should be avoided just as personal interpretation of scripture intent should be avoided. Many thanks, to the Holy Spirit, for this revelation.

The intent of this work is to provide a short, ready reference to Bible Numerics. When I first became interested in the subject, I found that a good overall picture of the subject could not be obtained without lengthy in-depth study. Therefore, I felt a work of this type was a needed tool in the Christians’ armamentarium of Bible study aids. I have divided this work into seven sections.

1. Why Numbers?
2. Numerical confirmation of Bible authority
3. What do the numbers mean?
4. Significant dates
5. Significant numbers – a potpourri
6. 666
7. Numeric equivalents of letters

Section 1: Why numbers?

How do we judge time: By numbers. How do we think of size and shape: numbers. How do we think of God? He is three in one: numbers. Our lives are centered on numbers and the significance these numbers hold for us. At the same time, we are afraid of them, when it comes to what they mean. Just who do you think it was that created numbers? God is the creator of all. Therefore, it stands to reason that He created the numbers. Because Satan came up with a perversion of God’s numbers, we are frightened away from learning about the meanings that God gave the numbers He created.

Bible numerics and numerology are vastly different subjects. The subject of this work is the numerics, as they relate to God, the Bible and man. Since the beginning, God has used numbers to give us greater insight into His Word and His will. Numbers have meaning and purpose, because all of God’s creation has meaning and purpose. Truth is truth, no matter where you find it – God is truth and Satan’s perversion is the lie.

We don’t overlook the real Christ just because Satan presents us with false Christ’s. In the same way, we shouldn’t overlook the numerics of the Bible just because Satan brought about numerology as a false religion.
It has been said that there is a special angel named Palmoni “a wonderful number” who makes known the things of God (1). Isaiah 40:12 says: “Who hath measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, and meted out heaven with the span, and comprehended the dust of the earth in a measure, and weighed the mountains in scales, and the hills in a balance?”
The tendency, when delving into a new Bible aspect, is to go somewhat overboard in our zeal to interpret the scriptures in light of our own prejudice. We should not therefore, take Bible numerics ‘one step beyond’ the Bible, but rather it gives us an excellent chance to see how God used a certain number in relation to a date, number of objects, or persons, or things; to give us a clearer understanding of His meaning and intent. There are many examples of this that become readily apparent, such as the twelve tribes and the twelve apostles representing the divine order of government, thirteen representing rebellion by adding something to God’s divine order and eleven representing incompleteness by subtracting something from that divine order.
Section 2: Numerical confirmation of Bible authority
Dr. Ivan Panin was a devout agnostic that set out to prove that the Bible was a hoax. He was a scholar in Greek and Hebrew, as well as a doctor of pure mathematics. As is often the case, it is interesting to see the result of such an undertaking.
Dr. Panin found uniformity through comparison of hundreds of biblical manuscripts. This uniformity led to the discovery of some amazing numerical facts about Bible structure. In no other writings are these attributes manifest as in the Bible, from Genesis through Revelation. The following are some of Dr. Panin’s findings –
A. The Following are divisible by seven-
The number of words in the vocabulary used in the Bible
The number of words beginning with a vowel
The number of words beginning with a consonant
The number of letters in the vocabulary
The number of vowels
The umber of consonants
The number of words, in the vocabulary, occurring more than once
The number of words, in the vocabulary, occurring only once
The number of words occurring in more than one form
The number of words occurring in more only one form
The number of nouns
The number that are not nouns
The number of proper names
The number of male names
The number of female names
The number of words beginning with each letter of the alphabet
It may bear stating now, as well as described later, that the number seven stands for spiritual perfection.
B. The following are divisible by eleven -
The number of books in the Bible - 66, 6 x 11
The anonymous books - 22, 2 x 11
The non-anonymous books – 44, 4 x 11
Writers of more than one book – 22, 2 x 11
The writers of only one book – 22, 2 x 11
The sum of the numbers of the 66 books – 2,211 or 201 x 11
Divided as follows –
22 books of the authors of more than one book, 946, 86 x 11
The other 44 books have 1,265 or 115 x 11
Of the 66 books, 21 are epistles and 45 are not
Epistles have 1,155, 115 x 11
Non epistles have 1,056, 96 x 11
There are many other examples found by Dr, Panin and others, however, in an effort to keep to the goal of a shortened work I have not enclosed them. For further research, I would recommend the reading of any of the books in the bibliography.
As I stated before, the results of this type of undertaking are often interesting. Dr, Panin came to know the Lord Jesus, as well as others did, as a result his work.
Section3: What do the numbers mean?–
For the sake of ease of reference I have listed the numbers, and a brief meaning or definition for each. Following these I have giver more complete listings for the numbers.
In determining the meanings of the numbers, I have gone to great lengths of research to determine the best and closest definitions according to God’s Word. I have not listed all numbers, for lack of confirmed meaning.

Section 5: Significant Numbers –

Jesus in Hebrew = 777
Jesus in Greek = 888
Cross in Greek = 777
Lucifer in Hebrew = 13
Sodom in Hebrew = 999

Everything to do with Jesus works out to multiples of 111
Everything to do with the Law works out to multiples of 700 (3)
Everything to do with Satan works out to multiples of 276

Adam = in Greek, = 46 = Αδάμ
Adam = in Hebrew, = 46 אדם הראשון =
Adam = in English, = 46 = Adam

Jesus in Greek =888 = Ιησούς
Jesus in Hebrew =777 = תשווע
Jesus in English = 11 = Jesus --- J =1, E =5, S=1, U=3, S=1 ==11

Love of God = 777

Wrath of God = 666

David, in Hebrew, could be spelled DWD-420 or DWYD-490
490 denoted the product of spiritual perfection

The city of my God = 144 x 24 or 3456

Jerusalem = 144 x 6 or 864

New Jerusalem = 144 x 8 or 1152

Revelation 21:2, The Holy City – New Jerusalem coming down from Heaven = 144 x 27 (3) or 3888 – completeness of the elect

The elect in Greek = 144,000 = ηεκλογη – 12 x 12 x 1,000 = 144,000’s = the amount of the multitudes of the elect

Body of Christ = 144 x 8 or 1152

House of Israel = 144 x 5 = 720 ---- 700 = the church, 20 = tribulation or conflict

Gospel = 144 x 4 or 576

Abraham = 144 = אברהם

Blessings of Abraham = 144 x 10 or 1,440 = אברהם ברכתו של

Mark 10:30 Blessings in this lifetime for the elect =144, with tribulation = 10 Faith = 144 x 7 = elect x perfection (3)

The seed of faith = 144 x 24 or 82944, the elect x heavenly government or worship

Adversary = 666

Christ, in Greek = Χριστός = 1480

In Hebrew, Yahweh Elohim = 111 = אלהים יהוה

As you have noticed, there are differences between the numeric value of words and phrases and their number in definition. A good example of this is “The Elect”. Its definition meaning is represented by the number 17. The addition of the value of each of the letters comes to 144. Although I don’t feel it’s my place to explain God’s wisdom, I present the following mathematical example.
17 144
Using the first 8, which will wholly go into 144, we can get by definition, new beginnings. By using the amount remaining, 8, we can get by definition, new birth. Thus, new beginnings by new birth = the elect.

Section 6: “666”-

Revelation 13:17 – calculate the number of the beast – 666

666 = anyone who does not come to be for Christ is anti-Christ

The main Social Security Administration switchboard in 1983 was 594-6660

Computer = 666 – 111 x 6

Cesar Nero = 666

New York = 666

Kissinger = 666
1 Corinthians 12:3 – can’t say Jesus is Lord – “Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calls Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.”
1 John 2:22 - denies Jesus is Lord - “Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist that denieth the Father and the Son.”
1 John 4:3 the spirits that don’t confess Jesus “And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.”
2 John 7 – “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.”
666 “The repetition may simply designate the number of the man who refuses to enter into the designs of God and to advance to the perfection of 7.” (4)
666 is the spirit of Anti-Christ
666 = wrath of God in Hebrew
666 in Greek is έξι έξι έξι = six, six, six
ϛʹ ϛʹ ϛʹ = 666
χ = 600, ξ = 60, ϛʹ = 6.

E. W. Bullinger defines 666 as follows –
“If six is the number of secular or human perfection, then 66 is a more emphatic expression of it: 666 is therefore the trinity of Human perfection: the perfection of imperfection: the culmination of human pride in independence of God and opposition to His Christ. 666 was the secret symbol of the ancient pagan mysteries connected with the worship of the devil. It is today the secret connecting link between the ancient mysteries and their modern revival in Spiritism, theosophy, etc.” The secret symbol was ϛʹ ϛʹ ϛʹ, the Greek representation of 666. Notice the similarities in the satanic and the Hitler and the rock group Ki .

In Roman numerals, only six letters are used –
D = 500
C = 100
L = 50
X = 10
V = 5
I = 1

The duration of the Assyrian empire was 666 years
Jerusalem was held by the Roman Empire for 666 years. BC 31 to AD 636

Goliath……. Height – 6 cubits
6 pieces of armor
His spear weighed 600 shekels of silver
Nebuchadnezzar.....image was 60 cubits high
6 cubits broad
Was worshiped when 6 instruments were heard

1 Kings 10:14, the talents of gold brought to Solomon in a year numbered 666

Ezra 2:13, the number of Adonikan, who returned from the captivity, numbered 666

666 = the sum of the numbers from 1 to 36

The same 36 numbers can be arranged in the form of a square, with 6 figures each way so that the sum of each figures in any direction shall be another significant trinity = 111

All seven references in the book of Revelation, to the mark of the beast, are structured in multiples of 666. (3)

World = 600
Earth = 60
Man = 6
Three words – the natural mind = 666
Section 7: Numerical Equivalents of Letters -

The language of today’s world is, without a doubt, English. Having been stationed overseas, in the service, I found that while shopping (especially in large cities with large U. S. military bases) the clerks often couldn’t speak English until you showed them that you could speak their language or you showed your money. An airport can’t be classified international unless it has at least one air traffic controller who can speak English.

As most people know, the language of the Old Testament was Hebrew and Greek for the New Testament. Although, in the days of Old Testament times, most people could not speak Hebrew, however, the only people that needed to know the scriptures were the Israeli’s. In Jesus time on earth, in and around Israel, three languages were commonly used: Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic. Aramaic was the general language in the streets, Hebrew was used by the Hebrew people (especially associated with their services) and Greek was used as the universal language of trade. Because of this, I have included all three languages and their numerical values by letter. In going over the Greek values I found that two letters had been dropped from the language in all except mathematics.

I have listed all three methods I have seen used for English in Bible numerics.

2013- Could we be living at the time of the end of the third biblical age?
2000 years is a Biblical age, Adam to Abraham, Abraham to Jesus, Jesus to second coming or millennium?
20. A. trouble or conflict, B. expectancy, C. 2 x 10 = division x tribulation, D. double meaning – trouble or conflict for the wicked or double dose of divine order for the righteous, E. alteration

13. A. rebellion, B. iniquity, C. 13 colonies rebelled against England, D. Lucifer in Hebrew = 13, E. apostasy, F. defection, G. corruption, H. disintegration, I. revolution, J. ill-omen

2014? A. a double dose of perfection, B. double dose of spiritual perfection, C. Elijah’s double portion, C. deliverance, D. salvation

2015? A. redemption through purification, B. acts wrought by the energy of divine grace, C. rest

It is extremely difficult to come up with an exact date for today or any other. The calendars all have their idiosyncratic differences. Between mistakes over the years, leap years, differences in (Solar, Lunar and Biblical) types, I rest my case.

“Did the biblical authors ever use the letters of the Hebrew alphabet to represent numbers? No. They used words for amounts, not numbers.
If this is so, was it possible for them to write numeric codes in the Bible using the letters of the Hebrew alphabet for numbers? No. They could not do so because they did not know of numbers. The first documented time the Jews used letters to represent numbers was on some Maccabean coins minted around 200 BC.
Did the authors of the New Testament ever use the letters of the Greek alphabet to represent numbers? No. Was it even possible for them to place hidden numeric codes in their writings? No.
The New Testament followed the Old Testament in using words instead of numbers: one = eis, two = duo, three = treis, etc. Even in Rev. 13:18 the “mark of the beast” is written out in the Greek words, “six hundred sixty-six.”
The historical facts are clear that it was simply not possible for Moses, the prophets or the apostles to use numeric codes in their writings. There is no simply archeological or literary evidence that the pre-exilic Jews ever used the letters of the Hebrew alphabet to represent numbers.

The Jews in Moses’ day had words to correspond to the amount of things. These words were treated like any other Hebrew word.

one =. ehed.
two = senayim.
three = salos.
four = arabaa.
five = hames
six = ses.
seven = seba.
eight = smoneh.
nine = tesa.
ten = eser.
hundred = meah.
thousand = eleph.
ten thousand = rebabah” (6)
All things considered, God’s word does say: “The very hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matthew 10:30).
As with all of my writings, everything must be compared to the Bible, for verification.

I do not wish to give credence to those who apply secret mystical meanings to Bible numerics or supposed hidden codes in the Bible. Although there may be some truth in those areas, that is not the purpose of this work. I wish, at this point, to say that “Numbers in the Word of God” is meant to show the consistency in God’s Word, as a proof of its infallibility.
