№ 74. Sacred Numbers in the Bible

PAGE STATUS: I don’t think I shall ever forget the day I finally realized all of this material belonged on a separate page. It was an epiphany. I believe many if not most of these sections are very strong, but I have never edited this page as a whole since gathering all the sections that had anything to do with numbers in the Bible. 
LAST UPDATE: September 11, 2020




Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
–Revelation 13:18

1611 King James Bible

31,104 Verses in the Holy Bible

See also GenevaBible.org (not relevant in and of itself, but a great reference)

It was the wish of Mary Baker Eddy that the Authorized King James Version of the Bible be the only Bible read in her church. Yet today, reading the “scriptural selection” and “responsive reading” from other Bibles is quite the thing and a mark of “progressive thinking” at the Mother Church in Boston where the weekly Lesson-Sermon is prepared. Few things disgust me more about these people. They have no idea what they are doing.

What you are about to read should startle you. It boggles my mind when I think of the level of effort involved. I faintly mimic this level of effort on this website by insisting  on exactly 108 pages with many if not most of the sacred numbers and numbers important to the progeny of Jove such as 13 and 66 being reserved for appropriate subject matter. Even this minuscule effort requires a lot of thought. Image planning 31,104 verses so that you end up with things like Matthew 24, Isaiah 24 (the “little apocalypse”), Revelation 13:18, and countless other examples of chapter and verse numbers imbued with meaning, many of which are discussed on this website.


The 1560 Geneva Bible was printed over a millennium after the biblical canons were established. How many of those years were required to design the chapter and verse numbers in the Bible? 100? 500? Was it the work of one man or generations of men? We will never know the answers to these questions. 


The math is simple, but why is the question.


216 x 144 = 31,104

And there are 31,104 verses in the Bible


Wikipedia says there are 31,102 verses, but they are using the BlueLetterBible.org and BibleBelievers.com websites as their authorities on this subject. The analysis on both of these websites is faulty. And that is damn near unforgivably shoddy work on the part of Wikipedia and these would-be authoritative websites because I can think of few subjects more important than this. 


If there are in fact 31,104 verses in the Bible, what that is telling us beyond any shadow of a doubt is that these two numbers are of inestimable important to humanity


The King James versions of the Bible from which Wikipedia is deriving their verse counts are missing two verses, 3 John 15 and Revelation 12:18.



Here you see in the King James Version that “Peace be to thee. Our friends salute thee. Greet the friends by name.” is included in 3 John 14. This is not the case in other Bibles. I only use two Bibles: the Authorized King James Version and “George M. Lamsa’s Translation from the Aramaic of the Peshitta.” Lamsa also has this final greeting as a separate verse.


14 However I trust I shall shortly see you, and we shall speak face to face.
15 Peace be to you. Our friends salute you. Salute the friends every one by his name.


For a complete list of Bible versions that include 3 John 1:15 click here. There are at least 35 such versions.

The second “missing” verse from the King James versions of the Bible (from which Wikipedia derives the 31,102 verses count) is Revelation 12:18. There is no such verse in those versions.


The first Bible in English to use both chapters and verses was the Geneva Bible published shortly afterwards in 1560. These verse divisions soon gained acceptance as a standard way to notate verses, and have since been used in nearly all English Bibles and the vast majority of those in other languages.  —Wikipedia, Chapters and verses of the Bible

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James Version by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th-century English Protestantism and was used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan, author of The Pilgrim’s Progress (1678). It was one of the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower (Pilgrim Hall Museum has collected several Bibles of Mayflower passengers). The Geneva Bible was used by many English Dissenters, and it was still respected by Oliver Cromwell’s soldiers at the time of the English Civil War, in the booklet “Cromwell’s Soldiers’ Pocket Bible”.

This version of the Bible is significant because, for the very first time, a mechanically printed, mass-produced Bible was made available directly to the general public which came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids (collectively called an apparatus), which included verse citations that allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible that acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations and indices.  —Wikipedia, Geneva Bible


The Geneva Bible set the standard for chapter and verse numbers and it did include Revelation 12:18.



For a complete list of Bible versions that include Revelation 12:18 click here. There are at least 31 such versions. I can offer no explanation as to why some versions of the Bible added 3 John 15. It was not included in the Geneva Bible.



The “re-Ver(sing) Verses” website discusses 3 John 15 at length. The Bible.org website has a very thorough analysis of the Third Epistle of John (Wikipedia completely ignores the issue) at 17. Exegetical Commentary on 3 John 1-15. In it the final greeting of John to Gaius is regarded as clearly distinct from the rest of the letter. This I think must be why many versions of the Bible include 3 John 15 as a separate verse for the final greeting. Doing so is consistent with 2 John 13 and many other letters in the New Testament that have separate verses for the final greetings such as “Peace be to you. Our friends salute you. Salute the friends every one by his name.”  in the Third Epistle of John.  Given my particular interest in this subject, it would be very telling to know which was the first Bible to separate this final greeting into 3 John 15.

666 on the Title Page of the King James Bible

Do not doubt for a moment that the artwork on the title page of the 1611 King James Bible is infused with meaning


The only other place I discuss the original 1611 King James version of the Bible is in the A Very Public Countdown to 2017 section of the № 6. 2017 versus 2018 page, where I make the point that the 400th anniversary of that Bible the year before 2012 (which is the end of the 13th Baktun in this Great Cycle, but NOT the end of the so-called “Mayan” calendar) was no coincidence.

The top of the image in question is thought to be the disciples of Christ Jesus. That may be, but there are a total of 17 human faces and 18 faces in total. They are clearly divided into three group of six, or 666. The division into three groups is clear by looking at the foundation on which they are presented.


The twelve disciples or something else altogether?

Peter is holding keys, but to what? I think this is a message to whoever is looking at the image that there is more to it than meets the eye. Here is the first group of six faces:



The first group of six faces

They are illuminated by the sun. This group of faces includes doubting Thomas, who is in the darker clothes. This group of faces represents the beginning. Now here is the second group:



The second group of six faces

St. Andrew’s cross represents the Roman numeral X and the passage of time. To the right of him is Matthew in the shadows holding a try square, which represents the secret societies operating behind the scene


Matthew holding a try square

Now if you are thinking 1611 is before 1717 and the Masonic symbolism does not yet exist, please read How Old Is The Square And Compass, And Why It Matters!). Why is Matthew such a shadowy figure? The answer is Matthew 24 from the first book in the New Testament and the most widely known apocalyptic writing outside of Revelation.


In short, what the secret societies are hiding is knowledge of the end times.


The centerpiece here is the lamb that is presumably holding a cross. But that is not a cross. Paul, who is holding the only sword in the drawing, is pointing at it as if to say, “That is a sword.” The sword has killed the lamb and behind this image representing the slaughter of the masses is the blazing star, Sirius. Given the preponderance of 23.5° symbolism in the artwork of the time (see the Scott Creighton and Gary Osborn page), I think the angle of the sword is meant to represent an axial tilt but has been exaggerated so as to not be so obvious. Any world-class artist of the time would have immediately spotted a true 23.5° tilt to the supposed cross and would have immediately suspected a larger hidden message. The lesson here is astrological. Thus the sixth face is the little face in the middle of all this symbolism, which is the face of the people.




Here is the last group of sixth faces

This group of faces represents the end times and stars James, the son of Alphaeus (James the Less) as the Grim Reaper. The same lions used in Roman times to martyr Christians is the 18th and final face.



The Grim Reaper

I might agree that this portrayal of 18 faces was a stretch were it not for the fact that they are so clearly divided into three groups. I think my interpretation of this image is dead on. The astronomical nature of the hidden message is hinted at elsewhere.



Both of these are standard imagery for the comet Venus. To the left is a close up of Ankhsunamun’s “comet” crown on the back of Tutankhamun’s throne borrowed from an excellent article on the subject entitled Velikovsky’s Comet Venus from the tunderbolts.info website. On the right is an image cut from the title page of the 1611 King James Bible.

This image appears at the feet of Moses, who really did lead the Jewish people out of Egypt as Venus came spectacularly close to earth and caused some bodies of water to rise as much as a mile high into the air.

It really did happen. Now the Jewish scribes exercised some poetic license with the whole parting of the waters thing, but you can imagine why these people to this very day imagine themselves to be God’s chosen people. They were slaves one day and the next they were running for their lives from the most powerful army in the world and looked back to see them all violently killed in an instance by what must have seemed to them to be a supernatural force.

Oh, and that singular bull’s eye. That’s pretty much what it looks like. See The All-Seeing “Eye of Providence” is the Great Red Spot on Jupiter for a discussion.

Four Faces of Ezekiel (the Fibonacci sequence in the Holy Bible)

In Ezekiel 10:14, we read. “And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle” (red-bold emphasis added).



This is the earliest known mention of the four faces of a man, lion, ox, and eagle (or phoenix). They appear in the Bible again in Revelation 4:7. “And the first beast was like a lion, and the second beast like a calf, and the third beast had a face as a man, and the fourth beast was like a flying eagle” (red-bold emphasis added).

The title page of the King James Bible prominently displays this tetramorph as it is called, particularly when associate with the four Gospel writers in the New Testament.

Click TITLE PAGE for the full-size, high-resolution Wikipedia image



Notice that each of the four gospel writers is holding a quill in his right hand making their identification unmistakable.


In the The four evangelists as four living creatures section of the Wikipedia Tetramorph page, nineteen different prominent Christian authorities throughout history are listed giving their different interpretations of which Gospel author (Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John) should be represented by which symbols (the face of a man or one of the three animals). These differences of opinion should alert the neophyte that what is important is the man, ox, lion, eagle symbolism, not the saints. Indeed, these same for faces are found on the Royal Arch tracing board of the Freemasons as well as the Wheel of Fortune Tarot card, where they have nothing whatsoever to do with Christianity.



It is with the Wheel of Fortune Tarot card that the association of these four faces with signs of the Zodiac becomes somewhat more obvious.


On the Waite card shown, though not necessarily on others, there are also four winged creatures in the corners of the card, representing the symbols of the four Evangelists (The Lion, the Ox, the Man and the Eagle). These four Evangelists are also represented by the four fixed astrological signs: LeoTaurusAquarius and Scorpio.  —Wikipedia, Wheel of Fortune (Tarot card)


The biblical effort to highjack the symbolic meaning of these four faces is unfortunate. Ezekiel lived long before Christ Jesus was born. His inspiration was doubtless some ancient knowledge he acquired while in exile in Babylon.

I believe this is precisely why Michelangelo painted Ezekiel looking behind himself on the Sistine Chapel ceiling. I think this knowledge is profoundly old. This should come as no surprise in a universe that is billions of years old,

The relationship between what English-speaking humans refer to as the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio is universal knowledge that transcends both time and space. I suspect very strongly that it is considered essential knowledge throughout the galaxy by countless species.  It is what all intelligent beings have in common. And most importantly of all, the relationship between the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio suggests very strongly that the creative force and hence the very fabric of the universe is mental, not material. If that is so, then men live beyond the grave. But I am getting ahead of myself.



Here is a summary of the order in which these four faces are used translated into signs of the Zodiac.


I am no little intrigued that of the nineteen Christian personages mentioned above, only one got the order of the signs of the zodiac correct.



He is listed in Wikipedia as “Pseudo-Athanasius (c. 350).” Who is this man? Who dared to do what the Freemasons would not even do on the Royal Arch tracing board? Some day when I finish these 108 pages, assuming that happens before the end, I look forward to acquainting myself with this man. Is “pseudo-Athanasius” and Athanasius one and the same? I find it hard to believe so because I think the homoousion (“Jesus is God”) people—of whom Athanasius was the champion—can’t read (“I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I”). On the other hand Arius was wrong to say “were He in the truest sense a son, He must have come after the Father, therefore the time obviously was when He was not, and hence He was a finite being.” The simple truth is the First Council of Nicea was a false dichotomy. The problem was the inability of anyone present to separate the man Jesus from the office of the Christ. Mrs. Eddy says, “The Christ dwelt forever an idea in the bosom of God, the divine Principle of the man Jesus…” (S&H, p.29:26-28).



Mesopotamian Chaos Monster and Sun God (credit Wikipedia). Images such as this doubtless inspired Ezekiel to encode his meaning into half-man, half-animal creatures.

What is the correct order of Ezekiel’s faces? The twelves signs of the Zodiac are divided into three groups of four which are known as the cardinal, fixed, and mutable signs. Ezekiel’s faces are the “fixed signs,” but this is so much astrological nonsense.

I am of the considerable opinion that the Greek pantheon and modern astrology are the earliest efforts of the Pythagoreans (the progeny of Jove in their day) to obfuscate our real history, in this case the fact that the planets were thought to be Gods because they were much closer to Earth and loomed large in the sky. In other words, they are seeking to hide the fact that the solar system was reconfigured in the not too distant past.


Why? Why go to all that trouble? I hope you are actually asking this question and not just reading. The answer is that they are laying the groundwork for uniformitarianism (a.k.a. gradualism). They want to hide the catastrophic nature of the planet on which we live. And why do they want to hide our catastrophic past? Because they have known since at least 600 B.C. that something far worse is about to happen and they want to lull us to sleep.


Nothing, I repeat nothing contributes more to the hypnotic state of man more than the belief that nothing ever changes, at least not within the timescale of a human life.


The belief that dramatic changes occur only over millions and billions of years makes our lives seem inconsequential in comparison. Darwin was their boy. These people are brilliant, consummate planners, so much so that I often think they must be working with an alien species that has a much longer lifespan than humans presently do because I don’t see how they could so skillfully execute such an elaborate plan having the same lifespan as the people being deceived. It is a feat that never ceases to amaze me. Astrology as a nonsensical replacement for astronomy was an important part of this deception. As sweeping as a deliberate deception astrology may seem to be, it is no different than what happened with all of the giant skeletons found in the U.S.A. 1000 years later that have mysteriously disappeared at the Smithsonian. Do you ever wonder why no one in a position of power demands that the Smithsonian account for those skeletons?

So let’s forget the “fixed sign” nonsense. Okay? What we do know is that the order of the Zodiac is unchanged since the days of Ezekiel.


      1. Aries (Aries.svg)
      2. Taurus (Taurus.svg)
      3. Gemini (Gemini.svg)
      4. Cancer (Cancer.svg)
      5. Leo (Leo.svg)
      6. Virgo (Virgo.svg)
      7. Libra (Libra.svg)
      8. Scorpio (Scorpio.svg)
      9. Sagittarius (Sagittarius.svg)
      10. Capricorn (Capricorn.svg)
      11. Aquarius (Aquarius.svg)
      12. Pisces (Pisces.svg)


There is no apparent reason for Ezekiel to single out these four constellations. So let’s look at the sequence. There is 2, 5, 8, and 11. Can you see what he is encoding? It has nothing to do with the Zodiac or constellations. He is just using the sequential numbers of the Zodiac to encode some numbers. They just need to be rearranged slightly.


1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8


Where did I get the three from? That is the beauty of using the signs of the Zodiac to encode the Fibonacci sequence. Three of the faces are animals. One is a human. Ezekiel 10 is a sophisticated encoding of the Fibonacci sequence. And so is the Royal Arch tracing board, the Wheel of Fortune Tarot card, the title page of the King James Bible, which by the way also encodes 666 (see 666 on the Title Page of the King James Bible for a discussion), and of course the Book of Revelation, which was written by the Phrygians who were the progeny of Jove in their day.

So what does all of this have to do with the 33.69° angle in a 2:3 aspect ratio rectangle? In this case, the four faces of Ezekiel is the 2:3 aspect ratio rectangle. Both are symbols used to convey a message of solidarity and camaraderie with those who recognize the highly special nature of the knowledge these symbols convey. The same is equally true for 23, 33, 322, and 666. They all carry essentially the same meaning. 23 is used by Hollywood, 33 by the Freemasons, 322 by the Illuminati.

66 and 666 are special cases. They are used to taunt the religious minded. The progeny of Jove are mortal enemies of the Jews and detest Christians. But their God is no “Lucifer.” Essentially, they worship numbers, but “numerology” is a grossly misleading term in this sense. Please stop now and take the time to read The Divine Essence (Golden Spiral and Sacred Number 216).
