Have you ever noticed when the Bible mentions, for example, the number 40, it ALWAYS relates to something bad? It rained in the days of Noah for 40 days and 40 nights (Genesis 7:4); the Jews wandered in the wilderness for 40 years (Numbers 14:23); Jesus wandered in the wilderness for 40 days (Luke 4:1-2); etc. Never does the Bible refer to the REALLY GREAT 40 days or 40 years! How about the number 7? It always relates to the number 7 as being THE number of completion, as when God created the earth and on the SEVENTH day He rested (because it was complete!). In a later post I will relate to you in much greater detail how numbers play a significant role in the Bible and in prophecy. God is perfect! This means His numbers are perfect!
A very dear, long time friend of mine sent me an email today with the statement below. It immediately reminded me of numbers, their perfection and how the Bible ALWAYS is consistent in their meanings. I did a quick fact check on some of the statements and discovered they are accurate! I hope you are amazed as I continuously am at the incredible and miraculous perfection of God!
When GOD solves our problems,
we have faith in HIS abilities.
When GOD doesn’t solve our problems,
HE has faith in our abilities.
One may observe God’s accuracy
in the hatching of eggs. . . .
· those of the canary in 14 days;
· those of the barnyard hen in 21 days;
· eggs of ducks and geese in 28 days;
· those of the mallard in 35 days;
the eggs of the parrot and the ostrich hatch in 42 days.
(NOTICE, THEY ARE ALL DIVISIBLE BY SEVEN,
THE NUMBER OF DAYS IN A WEEK!)
See God’s wisdom in the making of an ELEPHANT. . . .
The four legs of this great beast all bend forward in the same direction. No other quadruped is so made.
God planned that this animal would have a huge body
– too large to live on two legs.
For this reason
· He gave it four fulcrums so that it
can rise from the ground easily.
· The HORSE rises from the ground on its two front legs first.
· A COW rises from the ground with its two hind legs first.
HOW WISE THE LORD IS IN ALL HIS WORKS OF CREATION!
Each Watermelon has an even number of stripes on the rind.
· Each Orange has an even number of segments
· Each Ear Of Corn has an even number of rows.
· Each Stalk Of Wheat has an even number of grains.
· Every Bunch Of Bananas has on its lowest row
an even number of bananas,
and each row decreases by one,
so that one row has an even number
and the next row an odd number.
AMAZING! THERE’S MORE…
The waves of the sea roll in on shore
twenty-six to the minute in all kinds of weather.
All grains are found in even numbers on the stalks.
God has caused the flowers to blossom at certain
specified times during the day.
Linnaeus, the great botanist, once said that if he had
a conservatory containing the right kind of soil,
moisture, and temperature,
he could tell the time of day or night by the flowers
that were open
and those that were closed.
The lives of each of us may be ordered by the Lord in a beautiful way for His glory, if we will only
entrust Him with our lives. If we try to regulate our own lives, we will have only mess and failure.
Only God, who made our brains and hearts,
can successfully guide them to a profitable end.
carry the Bible, Satan has a headache;
open it, he collapses.
sees you reading it, he loses his strength, and
stand on the Word of God, Satan can’t hurt you!
And did you also know…
…that when you are about to forward this email to others,
the devil will probably try to discourage you,
but do it anyway.
LIFE WITHOUT GOD IS LIKE
AN UNSHARPENED PENCIL –
IT HAS NO POINT.
I pray God bless you in ways you never even dreamed.
I didn’t think twice about forwarding
this one on and I hope you don’t, either.
Pass on the blessings!!
