THE NUMBERS OF GOD #5
Numbers 28 through to 46
by Don Kistler (1976)
Eternal Life "TWENTY EIGHT"
Twenty-eight is the number for eternal life, without a
doubt. This was found by a combination of numbers found in
certain verses where the words "eternal life" were found. This is
found by examining the original Greek verses in various different
instances where eternal life is found having 28 words or 28 Greek
letters. "But where sin abounded, grace did much more abound:
That as sin hath reigned unto death,  even so might grace
[five] reign through righteousness unto eternal life by Jesus
Christ our Lord." (Romans 5:20-21) When five, grace, is added to
23, death, the total is 28, or eternal life.
In John 5:24 there are five positive statements, and the
last statement is, "but is passed from death unto life." "(1) He
that heareth my word, (2) and believeth on him that sent me, (3)
hath everlasting life, (4) and shall not come into condemnation;
(5) but is passed from death [number 23] unto life." There are
five verbs found in this verse. They are (1) heareth, (2)
believeth, (3) hath, (4) shall not come, and (5) is passed. In
the five divisions of this statement grace is found. In the fifth
and last division it is said, "but is passed from death unto
life." Grace took us out of death and passed us over into the
realm of eternal or everlasting life. When five, grace, is added
to 23, death, the sum is 28, or eternal life.
Romans 6:23 states, "For the wages of sin is death; but the
gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." The
statement, "but the gift of God is eternal life" has 28 Greek
letters and seven words. When the numbers from one to seven are
added, the total is 28. The same is found in John 10:27-29 in
which there are seven positive statements which are made in the
indicative mood - both in English and the original Greek
language. According to the rules of English, the indicative mood
expresses a positive or undoubted fact. To insert the word "if"
into his passage, as is so often done, would change the mood in
any passage to subjective. No one has any more right to change
the mood in any passage than to change anything else in the
Bible. Those seven positive statements are:
"(1) My sheep hear my voice, (2) and I know them, (3) and they
follow me: (4) And I give unto them eternal life; (5) and they
shall never perish, (6) neither shall any man pluck them out of
my hand. (7) My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all;
and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand." (John
10:27-29) First, they hear the voice of Christ; second, Christ
knows them; third, they follow Christ; fourth, Christ gives them
eternal life; fifth, they shall never perish; sixth, no one shall
pluck them out of the hand of Jesus; and, seventh, none is able
to pluck them out of the Father's hand. In the fourth statement,
Jesus said, "I give unto them eternal life;" (7 x 4 = 28, or
eternal life.) Add the numbers from one to seven in the same
statement and the sum is 28, the exact number of Greek letters in
the expression, "but the gift of God is eternal life"
Twenty-eight is two times 14, and the number 14 is
Eternal life is given to us for salvation of our soul with a
guarantee of salvation of our bodies. Twenty, redemption, plus
eight, new birth (and conversion) equals 28, or eternal life.
The 28th time that Noah's name occurs in Genesis 8:15-16, it
states, "And God spake unto Noah, saying, Go forth of the ark,
thou, and thy wife, and thy sons, and thy sons' wives with thee."
As Noah and his family entered the ark, we picture them passing
into eternal life and entering the blessed age to come.
Departure "TWENTY NINE"
Twenty-nine is the number for departure. When Jesus raised
Lazarus from the dead, He said, "Lazarus, come forth." Then it is
said, "And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with
graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus
saith unto them, loose him, and let him go." (John 11:43-44) From
the first word Jesus spoke to Lazarus until He said, "let him go"
there were 29 Greek words used. The 29th word is "go".
The 29th time the name of Noah is found is where he, and all
that were with him, went forth out of the ark. (Genesis 8:18 &
The 29th time the name of Abraham occurs is where the kings
who had overtook the kings of Sodom and Gomorrah took Lot with
his goods and departed. (Genesis 14:12)
The 29th time the name Isaac occurs is where he left
Laharroi and went unto Abimelech in Gerar. (Genesis 25:11-26:1)
The 29th time the name of Jacob is found is in the place
where he had left Canaan and had gone to Padanaram. (Genesis
The 29th time the name of Laban is found is when God told
Jacob to leave Laban's place and return to the land of his
father. The 29th time the name of Samson occurs is where he
awoke out of his sleep and went away with the pin of the beam and
web. (Judges 16:14)
Thirty is the number for blood and associated with the blood
of Jesus. Judas betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver. "Then
Judas, which had betrayed him, when he saw that he was condemned,
repented himself, and brought again the thirty pieces of silver
to the chief priests and elders, Saying, I have sinned in that I
have betrayed the innocent blood." (Matthew 27:3-4)
In Revelation 5:9, the redeemed said of Jesus, "And they
sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to
open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us
to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people,
and nation;" There are 30 Greek words in this statement. In the
statement, "hast redeemed us to God by thy blood" (Revelation
5:9) there are 30 Greek letters. The statement, "being now
justified by his blood," (Romans 5:9) has 30 Greek letters.
The 30th time the name of Noah occurs is in Genesis 8:20,
"And Noah builded an altar unto the Lord; and took of every clean
beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on
the altar." In this passage there can be seen the shedding of
blood. This blood was typical of the blood of Jesus.
The 30th time the name of Samuel occurs is found in I Samuel
7:9, "And Samuel took a suckling lamb, and offered it for a burnt
offering wholly unto the Lord:" Here again the shedding of blood
is seen. The first time the word "blood" is found in the Bible is
in Genesis 4:9-10. "And the Lord said unto Cain, Where is Abel
thy brother? And he said, I know not: Am I my brother's keeper?
And he said, What hast thou done? the voice of thy brother's
blood crieth unto me from the ground." Up to this time the name
of Adam had occurred 12 times, Eve two times, Cain nine times,
and Abel seven times, totaling 30. The 30th mention of a name is
that of Abel whose blood was shed. Ironical?
The blood of the lamb of God is spoken of in Revelation
5:6-9: "And I beheld, and, lo, in the midst of the throne and of
the four beasts, and in the midst of the elders, stood a Lamb as
it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are
the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth." (verse
John saw the Lamb, which was Jesus, that had been slain and
that seven in this verse is the 23rd time the word "seven" is
found in the book of Revelation. Here we find 23, death; and when
seven is added to 23 that makes 30, for the blood of the Lamb
Then John went on to say, "And when he had taken the book,
the four beasts  and four and twenty elders [24 fell down
before the Lamb, (1) having every one of them harps, and golden
vials full of odours, which are the prayers of the saints. And
they sung a new song, saying Thou are worthy to take the book,
and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast
redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue,
and people, and nation;" Thirty different ones are mentioned and
the Lamb that was slain is the 30th. Him on the throne - that's
one - and four beasts or living creatures - that's five - the 24
elders - that's 29 - and the Lamb that was slain totals 30,
representing the blood of the Lamb.
We have already seen that number 14, salvation and the
repentant thief was saved on the 14th day of the month, the day
Jesus was crucified. The words of the promise Jesus made to him,
"Today shalt thou be with me in paradise." (Luke 23:43) has 30
Greek letters. The law was fulfilled by the blood of Jesus.
Over the linen curtains of the tabernacle there was a cover made
of 11 curtains of goats hair, which were 30 cubits long and four
cubits wide. Five of these were coupled together, the other six
were coupled together and these two broad curtains were fastened
together with 50 taches of brass. The group of six were in front
with one double in the forefront of the tabernacle. (Exodus
26:7-10) This made the brass taches in the goats hair curtains to
come over the vail even as the gold taches in the linen curtains.
In the 11 curtains of goats hair we see Jesus bringing out
judgment on the cross. With the brass taches of the curtains
coming over the vail we see Jesus being lifted up as was the
serpent of brass in the wilderness. (Numbers 21:8-9; John
3:14-15) The 30 cubits length of the goats hair curtains
represented the blood of Jesus which was shed on the cross where
He bore the judgment of sins of the lost world. In the four
cubits, the width of the curtains, there is seen the truth that
the blood of Jesus was shed to save the lost man from sin. The
number 30, blood of Jesus, equals ten, the law, plus 20, or
redemption. "when the fullness of the time has come, God sent
forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, To redeem
them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption
of sons." (Galatians 4:4-5) It took the blood of Christ to redeem
from the law. Having seen that 30 stands for the blood of Jesus,
and that Jesus redeemed us from the law, let us read Ephesians
1:7 in the light of the Bible numbers. "In whom we have
redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according
to the riches of his grace;" Number 20 is for redemption, number
ten is for the law, number 30 is for the blood of Jesus, number
25 is for the forgiveness of sins, and number five is for grace.
In this verse the results of this redemption is the forgiveness
of sins, according to the riches of God's grace. When 25,
forgiveness of sins, is added to five, grace, in this verse they
equal 30, the blood of Jesus.
The tabernacle was made of boards standing up. (Exodus
26:13) These boards were ten cubits long and a cubit and a half
wide. (Exodus 26:16) There were 20 boards in each of the sides,
south and north. (Exodus 26:18-20) When the 20 boards are
multiplied by a cubit and a half, the width of each board, that
makes 30 cubits as the length of the tabernacle. The 20 boards
were held together with five bars to the side. (Exodus 26:26-28)
The 20 boards and five bars and the 20 boards made 25 pieces of
material to the side. In the long side of the tabernacle (1) the
number of boards is 20 for redemption, (2) the height was ten
cubits for the number for the law, (3) the length was 30 cubits,
which stands for the blood of Jesus, (4) 25 pieces of material
stands for the forgiveness of sins, (5) five bars is the number
for grace. In the long side of the tabernacle there is pictured
redemption, 20, the law, ten, the blood of Jesus, 30, forgiveness
of sins, 25, or according to the riches of God's grace, number
five. Thus all the doctrine in Ephesians 1:7 and in Galatians
4:15 are shown in the numbers in the long side of the tabernacle.
Who but God could draw a picture like this?
Under 20, which stands for redemption, it was shown that
Boaz redeemed the property of Elimelech, Chilion and Mahlon.
(Ruth 4:1-11) It was also proven that the name of Boaz was found
20 times in the book of Ruth and that he was the 20th in the
lineage of Shem, the new line that started after the flood. Going
back to Adam, Boaz is 30 in line. (See the generations of Shem in
Genesis 11:10-26.) This brings in the record of Abraham. To this
add the names of Isaac, Jacob and Judah and then take up with
Pharez, Judah's son in Ruth 4:18-22. This will show that Boaz was
the 20th in the generation from Shem and the 30th from Adam. He
was connected with redemption, and redemption is through the
blood. Both 20 and 30, the numbers for redemption and blood, are
connected with Boaz. He was the 20th from Shem and the 30th from
Adam. The numbers never fail to fall in place.
Offspring or Seed "THIRTY-ONE"
The following are examples of how God used the number 31 in
producing offspring or furthering his seed.
Noah's name occurs the 31st time when God said unto him, "Be
fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth." (Genesis 9:1)
Abram occurs the 31st time where the word speaks of his
trained servants born unto his house. (Genesis 14:4) Abraham's
name occurs the 31st time where he prayed for the house of
Abimelech, his wife and maidservants so that they might bare
children. (Genesis 20:17-18)
The 31st time the name of Jacob occurs is when he had
awakened out of his sleep after God had told him his seed would
be as the dust of the earth. (Genesis 28:13-16)
There are many more examples, but I hope these will suffice.
Covenant "THIRTY TWO"
There are 32 references in the book of Deuteronomy to the
Abrahamic covenant. Boaz and Ruth were in the lineage of Jesus,
in Whom the covenant with Abraham was confirmed. (Galatians 3:17)
The name of Boaz is found 20 times in the book of Ruth, and the
name Ruth is found 12 times. When 12 is added to 20, the sum is
32, the number for covenant. The number 12, which stands for
divine authority, added to number 20, for redemption, equals 32,
for covenant. The 32nd time Noah's name occurs is found where God
made a covenant with him, "And God spake unto Noah, and to his
sons with him, saying, And I, behold, I establish my covenant
with you, and with your seed after you;" (Genesis 9:8-9)
Thirty-three is the number for promise. In Ephesians 2:12,
the expression "covenants of Promise," is found. The word
"promise" follows the word covenant.
The 33rd time Noah's name is found is where God gave the
rainbow as a sign of His promise to Noah and future generations.
(Genesis 9:13-17) Water will not destroy the earth again.
Isaac was a child of promise, "Now we, brethren, as Isaac
was, are the children of promise." (Galatians 4:28) Abraham's
name occurs the 33rd time when Isaac is born. "And the Lord
visited Sarah as he had said, [was this not the promise?] For
Sarah conceived, and bare Abraham a son in his old age, at the
set time of which God had spoken to him." (Genesis 21:1-2) God
fulfilled the promise to Abraham and his name occurs the 33rd
In Galatians 4:23 these words are found, "but he of the
freewoman was by promise." In the Greek text there are 33 letters
and eight Greek words in this statement. This fits perfectly with
Genesis 21:1-4. In Genesis 21:4 it is said, "And Abraham
circumcised his son Isaac being eight days old," Why are there 33
Greek letters and eight Greek words about Isaac in Galatians
4:23? The number of letters agree with the 33rd time Abraham's
name was found, in connection with the birth of Isaac, the child
of promise. The eight Greek words agree with the number of days
on which Isaac was circumcised!
The number 34 has been difficult to identify. After much
study, searching, prayer and fasting, God has revealed it to mean
endurance. When God tested the faith of Abraham by asking for
Isaac as a sacrifice, his faith endured and he was victorious.
Thirty-five is the number connected with hope, "And now
abideth faith, hope, and charity, these three; but the greatest
of these is charity." (I Corinthians 13:13) When 19, faith, is
added to 16, love, they total 35 for hope.
The birth of Enos was mentioned being connected with 105.
(Genesis 5:6) When Enos was born men began to call upon the name
of the Lord. (Genesis 4:26) Fourteen, or salvation, "whosoever
shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans
10:13) When the numbers from one to 14 are added, the sum
is 105, the number connected with the birth of Enos. Enos was the
third in the lineage of Adam. When three is multiplied by 35,
which stands for the believer's hope, the sum is 105, again
connected with the birth of Enos.
Thirty-six is the number for enemy. The 36th time the name
of Haman occurs is where Esther called him the adversary and
"And Esther said, The adversary and the enemy is this wicked
Haman. Then Haman was afraid before the king and the queen."
(Esther 7:6) In this place Haman's name occurs the 35th and 36th
times. His hope of having the Jews put to death was taken away,
as he was set forth as the enemy of the Jews. He was called the
Jew's enemy in Esther 3:4. The sixth time his name occurs is in
Esther 3:6, where he sought to have all the Jews put to death.
This was a violation of the sixth commandment, "Thou shalt not
kill." (Exodus 20:13) Six times six is 36. The 36th time the name
of Abram occurs is where God said to him, "Fear not, Abram: I am
thy shield," (Genesis 15:1) A shield is a protector from the
The 36th time David's name is found is in I Samuel 17:50,
and it is where he overcame his enemy, Goliath, with a sling and
a stone. Goliath had the number six in his height. "And there
went out a champion out of the camp of the Philistines, named
Goliath, of Gath, whose height was six cubits and a span. And he
had a helmet of brass upon his head, and he was armed with a coat
of mail; and the weight of the coat was five thousand shekels of
brass. And he had greaves of brass upon his legs, and a target of
brass between his shoulders. And the staff of his spear was like
a weaver's beam; and his spear's head weighed six hundred shekels
of iron: and one bearing a shield went before him." (I Samuel
17:4) David went out to meet his enemy with his faith fixed in
God. David said, "moreover, The Lord that delivered me out of the
paw of the lion, and out of the paw of the bear, he will deliver
me out of the hand of this Philistine." (I Samuel 17:37) The
number for faith is 19, and victory, 17; when you take 19, faith,
from 36, enemy, you have the victory or 17. David won his victory
through his faith in God.
There are 36 references to the beast in the book of
Revelation and the numbers one through 36 add up to 666, the
number of the beast. (Revelation 13:18) The beast is referred to
in the following places: (1) 11:7, (2) 13:1, (3) 13:2, (4)
13:3,(5,6&7)13:4, (8&9)13:12,(10&11)13:14,(12, 13 & 14) 13:15,
(15) 13:17, (16) 13:18, (17) 14:9, (18) 14:11, (19) 15:2, (20)
16:2, (21) 16:10, (22) 16:13, (23) 17:3, (24) 17:7, (25 & 26)
17:8, (27) 17:11, (28) 17:12, (29) 17:13, (30) 17:16, (31) 17:17,
(32) 19:19, (33 & 34) 19:20, (35) 20:4 and (36) 20:10. A total of
36, all in Revelation.
The four beasts are from the word "Zoan." This word is not
to be confused with the word "thereon," for the evil beast of
Revelation. The beast will be the great enemy of the saints
before the great tribulations. (Revelation 13:7) In Revelation
13:2 it states, "And the beast which I saw was like unto a
leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth
as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and
his seat, and great authority." This statement has 36 Greek
words. When six, Satan, who is called the dragon, is added to 36,
the number of times the beast is mentioned, we get a total of 42;
the beast will continue 42 months. "and power was given unto him
to continue forty and two months." (Revelation 13:5) The word
"dragon" occurs 13 times in Revelation. The numbers one through
13 add up to 91. When 36, the number of times the word "dragon"
is found, is added to 42, the number of months the beast will be
in power, they equal 91.
Thirty-seven is the number for exaltation. David was exalted
when he overthrew his enemy. The beast, who is the enemy, is cast
into the lake of fire, and the devil, another enemy, is put into
the bottomless pit; then the glorified saints of God will be
exalted to rule and reign with Jesus 1000 years. (Revelation
In the 37th year of his imprisonment, the 25th day of the
12th month, Jehoiachin was pardoned from prison, his throne was
set above the thrones of the kings that were with him in Babylon,
"And it came to pass in the seven and thirtieth year of the
captivity of Jehoiachin king of Judah, in the twelfth month, in
the five and twentieth day of the month, that evil-Merodack king
of Babylon in the first year of his reign lifted up the head of
Jehoiachin king of Judah, and brought him forth out of prison,
And spake kindly unto him, and set his throne above the throne of
the kings that were with him in Babylon." (Jeremiah 52:31 & 32)
Jehoiachin was exalted in the 37th year of his captivity, on
the 25th day of the 12th month. These two numbers add up to 37,
corresponding with the 37th year. In this scripture are mentioned
12 (divine authority, which pardons and exalts), 25 (for pardon
or forgiveness of sins) and 37 (or Exaltation).
Thirty-eight seems to be the number that stands for
righteousness. It is the sum of five, grace, 14, salvation, and
19, or faith. Romans 3:22-24, righteousness that comes by faith
and justification that is by grace. Jesus told me that 38 is
righteousness. Righteousness and grace are connected with the
reign of the saints. "For if by one man's offense death reigned
by one; much more they which receive abundance of grace and of
the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus
Christ." (Romans 5:17) After the beast, 36, is put down and the
saints are exalted, 37, to reign with Jesus, the earth will have
righteous rule, "Behold, a king shall reign in righteousness, and
princes shall rule in judgment." (Isaiah 32:1)
Truth "THIRTY- NINE"
Thirty-nine surely seems to stand for truth. After the
saints are exalted to reign with Jesus and to rule in
righteousness on the earth, then truth will prevail. "They shall
not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain: for the earth shall
be full of the knowledge of the Lord, as the waters cover the
sea." (Isaiah 11:9) "Thus saith the Lord; I am returned unto
Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem
shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the Lord of
hosts the holy mountain." (Zechariah 8:3) "but grace and truth
came by Jesus Christ." There are 39 Greek letters in John 1:17.
Tribulation or Trial "FORTY"
Our Lord was tempted 40 days, "And immediately the Spirit
driveth him into the wilderness. And he was there in the
wilderness forty days, tempted by Satan:" (Mark 1:12 13)
Israel was 40 years in the wilderness. "Harden not your
hearts, as in the provocation, in the day of the temptation. in
the wilderness: When your fathers tempted me, proved me. and saw
my works forty years." (Hebrews 3:8 & 9) Israel was tried 40 days
when Moses was in the mountain. "and Moses was in the mount forty
days and forty nights." (Exodus 24:18) "And when the people saw
that Moses delayed to come down out of the mount, the people
gathered themselves together unto Aaron, and said unto him, Up,
make us gods, which shall go before us; for as for this Moses,
the man that brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we wot not
what is become of him." (Exodus 32:1)
Four times ten (four and ten are the numbers of the natural
man under the law) equals 40. The natural man under the law fall
into temptation, as did Israel. Forty is five times eight (the
numbers for grace and the new birth)(and conversion - Keith Hunt)
The grace of God, five, enables one with the new birth
(conversion - Keith Hunt) eight, to withstand temptation. Forty
is 20 for the redemption of the soul, plus 20 for the redemption
of the body, which will place God's children above the reach of
FORTY-ONE is the number for DECEPTION. The serpent tempted
Eve and deceived her. "but the woman being deceived was in the
transgression." (I Timothy 2:14)
There are 41 Greek words in 2 Corinthians 11:13-15. "For
such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming
themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no marvel; for Satan
himself is transformed into an angel of light. Therefore it is no
great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers
of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works."
The next number, 42, stands for the SECOND COMING OF JESUS
CHRIST. Just before He returns - especially just before He
returns to the earth - there will be a time of great DECEPTION.
Please read 2 Thessalonians 2:7-10, 2 Timothy 3:1-7, and 2
Second Coming of Jesus "FORTY TWO"
Let's take 42. Number 42 is the number associated with the
Coming of Jesus: both His first coming and the two manifestations
at His second advent (He came into the world the first time in
the 42nd generation from Abraham). He will return to the earth at
the end of the 42-month reign of the beast to put an end to the
wicked reign. The marvelous way in which this number works is the
wonder of all wonders. My children of God, the time is at hand!
"So all the generations from Abraham to David are four
teen generations; and from David until the carrying away into
Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into
Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations." That is in Matthew
1:17. Here are 14 generations three times over. Three times 14
makes 42. Here is the number three for the Resurrection, and 14
for Salvation. "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt
call His name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their
sins." See Matthew 1:21. Christ is also the "Resurrection, and
the life:" That is in John 11:25. When Jesus comes for His
saints, the dead in Christ will be raised and the salvation of
their bodies will take place. "and unto them that look for him
shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation."
When three for the resurrection is multiplied by 14 for
salvation, the product is 42, for the coming of Christ. When
Jesus raised Lazarus, He spoke three words, "Lazarus, come
forth." That is in John 11:43. There are also three Greek words
here which have 14 letters. Here again the number three, for the
resurrection, and 14, for salvation or deliverance, follow these
three words with 14 letters. Lazarus came forth from the grave.
When the three words are added to the 14 letters, they total 17
for victory out of the grave, "O grave, where is thy victory?" (I
Corinthians 15:55) "thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory
through our (1) Lord (2) Jesus (3) Christ." This is in I
When the 14 letters in the three words Jesus spoke to
Lazarus are multiplied by the three words the product is 42, for
the second coming of Jesus. Fourteen times three is 42.
In all of this, there is a picture of what will take place
when Jesus comes for His saints. Then the resurrection will take
place, and three is for the resurrection. The salvation of their
bodies will take place and 14 is the number for salvation. There
is victory over death and the grave: three for resurrection and
14 for salvation total 17, the number for victory. "So when this
corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall
have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying
that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory." (I Corin-
All of this will be brought about at the coming of the Lord
Jesus. When three for the resurrection of the bodies is
multiplied by 14, the product is 42, for the coming of the Lord
Jesus, when all this takes place.
According to the Greek, the word "anastasis" is found 42
times in the New Testament. In the translation according to the
revelation that Jesus gave me, this word translated
"Resurrection" 39 times, "raising again," one time, "raised to
life again," one time, and "that shall raise," one time. This
makes 42 times this word occurs where John said, "Blessed and
holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the
second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and
of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years."
(Revelation 20:6) This connects the first resurrection with 42,
the number for the coming of Jesus. A compound form of the Greek
word "anastasis" is found one time in the New Testament; it is
"exanastasis." It is found in Philippians 3:11, and is translated
If this compounded form of anastasis be counted, the 42nd
time this word would be found is in Revelation 20:5 where it is
said, "This is the first resurrection." In the statement, "This
is the first resurrection." there are five Greek words and 20
Greek letters. When the numbers from one to 20 are added up the
sum is 210. When this number, 210, is divided by five, the number
of words in the passage, it comes out exactly 42, which is the
number for the second coming of Jesus.
When Jesus comes to raise His sleeping saints and to
translate the living saints then their bodies will be redeemed
and the manifestation of the sons of God will take place. "For
the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the
manifestation of the sons of God." (Romans 8:19) At that time it
will be brought to light who are really the sons of God.
In the same connection Paul said, "And not only they, but
ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even
we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to
wit, the redemption of our body." See Romans 8:23. Number 22
stands for light or making manifest, number 20 stands for
redemption, and when 22 is added to 20, the sum is 42, for the
second coming of Jesus at which time the manifestation of the
sons of God will take place and their bodies will be redeemed.
Where can such a book as the Bible be found?
The return of Jesus to the earth to reign is also connected
with 42. The beast or the man of sin is to be destroyed with the
brightness of our Lord's coming. "For the mystery of iniquity
doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be
taken out of the way. And then shall that Wicked be revealed,
whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and
shall destroy with the brighteness of his coming," (2
There are 36 Greek words in this statement, the exact number
of words found about the beast in Revelation 3:2, and the exact
number of times the beast is mentioned in the book of Revelation.
This also shows that this person will be destroyed with the
brightness of our Lord's coming.
In Revelation 13:5, it is stated that the beast will
continue 42 months. "and power was given unto him to continue
FORTY and TWO months." In Revelation 19:11-21, there is a
prophecy of the return of Christ to judge and make war. He is
called Faithful and True in the 11th verse, in the 13th verse He
is called the Word of God. In the 16th verse, He is called the
King of kings and the Lord of lords. In the 19th and 20th verses,
He is a prophecy of the beast being cast into the lake of fire
and brimstone. So since the beast will continue 42 months and
since he will be destroyed at the return of Jesus, then Jesus
will return to reign at the end of 42 months of the beast's
power, this again connects our Lord's coming with the number 42.
I've just told you something, children of God, Hallelujah! Jesus
revealed unto me of His coming and when. Oh, if you can just see
what Jesus has revealed to you! That you might know the time of
His coming! Not the day nor the hour, but the time of His coming.
(Welllll.....not so fast - the book of Daniel ADDS some time
AFTER the 1260 days or 42 months - the last verses of Daniel 12.
But yes in the overall of it 42 stands for the coming of Christ -
Let us see how 42 balances with the number of the devil plus
the number of the beast. Here is something to make us marvel
indeed. Peter said in I Peter 1:13, "Wherefore gird up the loins
of your mind, be sober and hope to the end for the grace that is
to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ." When
five for grace is multiplied by 42 for the coming of Christ, the
product is 210. Keep this number in mind.
In Jude, in the 14th and 15th verses, there is a prophecy of
Jesus coming in judgment. "And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam,
prophesied of these saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten
thousands of his saints, To execute judgment upon all, and to
convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly
deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard
speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him." Here is
a prophecy of Jesus coming in judgment. Number 11 stands for
judgment and 42 for the coming of Jesus. When 42 is multiplied by
11, the product is 462. Let this number, also, be kept in mind.
It was Enoch, the seventh from Adam, who prophesied of this
judgment. When 462 is divided by seven, the number connected with
Enoch, it comes out exactly 66 times. Enoch prophesied of
judgment. When you take 11, the number for judgment, and add all
the numbers from one to 11, the sum is 66.
A description? This coming in judgment is given in
Revelation 19:11-12 and Revelation is the 66th and last book of
Now let us add 210 (which was obtained by multiplying 42 for
the coming of Jesus, by five, the number for grace as given in I
Peter 1:13) to 462 (which is 11, for the judgment, divided by 42,
which is for the coming of Jesus). These two numbers, 210 and
462, make 672. Six, the number for the devil or Satan, added to
666, the number of the beast (see Revelation 13:18), equals 672.
The evil combination of the devil and the beast will be broken up
by our Lord's return.
How about those numbers, children of God? Who could write
such a book or books and make them balance like this? Only one
inspired by God to do so, by the revelation of Jesus Christ! Each
of the 66 books of the Bible was inspired and guided by Him, Who
is all-wise and never makes a mistake.
Let's take the next number. Forty-four is the number for
PERDITION. This is found by reading Revelation 17:9-11. "And here
is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven
mountains, on which the woman sitteth. And there are seven kings:
five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and
when he cometh, he must continue a short space. And the beast
that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven,
and goeth into perdition."
Seven heads and seven mountains are 14, one woman, seven
kings, five have fallen and one to come ... a sum of 28; even he
is the eighth that is to come is 29, the beast that was and is
not. Thirty-seven and seven and goeth into PERDITION - that
totals 44, which is the number for PERDITION.
In the words, "the beast that was, and is not, even he is
the eighth," there are 44 Greek letters. In the words, "and is
the seven, and goeth into PERDITION," there are 36 Greek letters.
Here is 36, the Enemy, the number of times the beast is mentioned
in the book of Revelation. Then there are 44 letters, the number
of PERDITION, where he goes in the end. In Revelation 19:20 we
read, "And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet
that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them
that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped
These both were cast alive into a fire burning with
brimstone. In this statement there are exactly 44 Greek words,
the number for PERDITION where John said he would go. It has been
seen that 30 is the number for the Blood of Jesus and when 30 is
subtracted from 44, it leaves 14, the number for Salvation. "For
God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that
whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have
everlasting life." That's John 3:16. The one who receives the
Love (number 16) of God in his heart will not go to PERDITION
(number 44) but will have Eternal Life (number 28). When 16 is
subtracted from 44, we get 28, for Eternal Life. When 19, for
Faith, is subtracted from 44, for PERDITION, it leaves 25, the
Forgiveness of Sins.
The number for the natural or unsaved man is four. Eleven
stands for Judgment. When four is multiplied by 11, the product
is 44, the number for PERDITION. This is where the unsaved will
go after being judged. "And whosoever was not found written in
the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire." That is
The words "whosoever was not found written in the book of
life" have 11 Greek words and 44 Greek letters. That ought to
take care of 44 in the precious Name of Jesus.
Let us go on to 45. It is the number connected with
In Joshua 14:14, we find where Caleb was given the
INHERITANCE which God, through Moses, had promised unto him, 45
years after that promise was made. The name of Caleb is found
nine times in the Book of Joshua. When all the numbers from one
to nine are added, they total 45.
In Genesis 15:18 we read, "In the same day the Lord made a
Covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I given this
land, from the (1) river of Egypt unto the great (2) river, the
(3) river Euphrates:" In this connection, the name of Abram
occurs the 42nd time and the word "River" is found three
times. When three is added to 42 that makes 45, the number of
INHERITANCE, and that is what is under consideration in this
The names Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego are found 15 times
in the book of Daniel. The 15th time is where they were promoted
in the Providence of Babylon. This was after they had been
brought forth alive out of the fiery furnace. Here is found a
picture of the Resurrection.
When we multiply 15, the number of times their names are
mentioned, by three, the number of Hebrew children, and the
number for the Resurrection, we get 45, the number for
In Matthew 5:5 we read, "Blessed are the meek: for they
shall inherit the earth." There are 45 Greek letters in this
statement, and this is the third one of the Beatitudes. Number 45
is 42 for the Second Coming of Jesus, and three for the
Resurrection of the saints which will take place at the Lord's
coming. After this the saints will inherit the earth. That ought
to be enough for number 45.
Second Death "FORTY-SIX"
Let me go on. Forty-six is the Second Death. The number 46
seems to be this because it is twice 23, and 23 is the number for
the First Death.
So twice 23 should give us the number for the Second Death.
That is the only usage I can find in the Bible for 46.
Indeed who but an all powerful Eternal God could use numbers
throughout the Bible like this - God is the master arithmetic
God is the creator of music. We use 7 letters in music: ABCDEFG
There are 7 days to the week. In the basic music scale there are
7 notes. When you take all the notes in music (the sharps and
flats) there are 12. And there are 12 months in the year. 12
tribes of Israel. 12 apostles during the 42 months of Christ
ministry - 42 for His return.
The are then TWO basic scales in music (2 Eternal beings in the
Godhead) the 7 note scale and the 12 note scale.
All music is based upon either the use of the 7 note scale or the
12 note scale.
Anyone trying to use any sounds other than the 7 or 12 sounds God
created for music will produce music that is out of harmony with
God's creation, and so will sound like two cats fighting on a hot
tin roof - it will be sound that is not pleasing to the ear,
hence not real music at all. And to be sure Satan in different
parts of the world has people who have perverted sounds they
think is music.
In 1975 when I started to teach music for a Music School near
Toronto, I walked in one day to hear this horrible wacky music
(so called) being played. I asked about it and was told some
"egg-head" PhD music geek in Toronto University had decided we
did not need the rules of music, so he had thrown them out and
had given his new form of music a "special name" - thankfully it
never caught on, it died a quick death I'm glad to say.
There is enough perverted music in the world with people staying
with the 7 or 12 note scales (with shouting, screaming, wailing,
moaning, groaning, over-amplification, crazy off-beat rhythm
mixed in with frenzy that maybe appropriate for horror movies,
which themselves are mostly perverted in the vision sight of
creation) without adding any idea of throwing out the rules of
music as created by the Lord.
