The Meaning of Numbers in the Bible

The Meaning of Numbers in the Bible

No one would be so foolish as to deny the mathematical precision of the universe. This great truth is at the very foundation of America's great success in space. Now comes the question - who is responsible for this accuracy and if your answer is GOD, then you are exactly right. Let us carry this a step further and ask about the Bible. How do we explain the unerring accuracy of its prophetical utterings that have been fulfilled right on time even though these predictions were made hundreds of years ago. There can be only one answer if we will be honest and mature in our reasoning. The Bible is exactly what it claims to be, i.e. the WORD OF GOD. The explanation finds the true answer in the words of the apostle Paul (2 Tim. 3:16):

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for oorreetion3 for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."

And again in 2 Peter 1:21:
"For the prophecy came not in old time by the wilt of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Spirit."

Science has known for many years that a numeric scheme runs throughout creation and that everything operates according to mathematical laws. In the last few years one of the world's leading mathematicians, Dr. Ivan Panin has discovered that this same mathematical pattern weaves a network of design beneath the surface of the Greek and Hebrew manuscripts of the Bible. We intend to show that men not only could not design these numeric patterns, but that they knew nothing of their presence at the time of writing. These patterns are so conclusive that they completely eliminate coincidence, and any thinking man or woman would not dare
show his or her ignorance by even suggesting the word.

Every Bible student is acquainted with the fact that in God's Book we have a collection of writings by some forty men of all walks of life over a long period of time, given to us in two different languages (Greek and Hebrew), fitting together as one harmonious whole. All of us who love God's Word have always considered this to be an extremely strong point in support of the Divine inspiration of the Bible. Now however, it can be shown that this same collection of writings, 2000 to 4000 years old has numerous patterns woven beneath the surface, completely independent of the writers that places the Divine stamp of approval on its glorious pages and cries out with the apostle Peter, "we have not followed, cunningly devised fables."

Sir Ambrose Fleming, D. S c , F.R.S. has said, "The work of Dr. Panin (Bible numerics) has been investigated by the Nobel Research Foundation of the U.S.A., and regarding his statement that the Bible could not possibly have been written except by inspiration of God Himself; their verdict is as follows: "So far as our investigation has proceeded, we find the evidence overwhelmingly in favor of such a statement."

Professor Albert Einstein expressing his amazement at the mathematical perfection of the universe stated, "The scientist's religious feeling takes the form of rapturous amazement at the perfect harmony of natural law, which reveals intelligence of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection." Sir Isaac Newton speaking of the mathematical perfection of the universe said: "This could only proceed from the council and dominion of an intelligent and powerful being."

Of all the sciences, the science of mathematics is the only exact science and unless proven mathematically, all other branches of science are but theories or opinions. If we then can use this exact science of mathematics as additional proof to put forward our position, we thus take into the battle weapons known, understand and accepted without question. Mathematical proof must be accepted for it is the basis of all the sciences and as we are now in a position to supply such proof, we can show that the Word of God is still and will ever be more than a match for Pharaoh's magicians and the magicians of the space age."
