Section 1: About the King James Code.

What the King James Code is NOT.

The King James Code does not have anything to do with equidistant letter sequences. Much debate centers around ELS because of its controversial, and sometimes rather subjective nature. Some feel that, even though, there may well be letter sequences in the Hebrew scriptures, there meanings and interpretations are most often obscure.

The King James Code is not a private, secret language that only the elect are going to be able to interpret. It does not necessarily require sophisticated computers and software in order to discover the codes, however, a computer search is much easier and less time consuming than a typical concordance search.

What is the King James Code?

If I had to describe the King James Code in a nutshell, I would do it this way. The King James Bible contains a system of numbers that are consistently linked with words or phrases in the scriptures. It is understood that the Bible can be comprehended on many levels. The more you study the Scriptures and become accustomed to them, the more you understand the Divine symbols of certain passages that you never saw before. These must always come as a product of Divine Revelation. Certain words and phrases take on a whole new meaning, never contradictory to any other passage in the Scriptures. As you study, you begin to see also that numbers seem to have a certain relevance in the Bible. Each number will have its own symbolic meaning. Things associated with completion or perfection will be linked with the number 7. Things associated with the sinfulness of man will be associated with the number 6, and so on.

What I have discovered, or rather, what the Lord has revealed, is that word and phrase occurrences in the King James Bible follow this same pattern. If a word or a phrase is added or omitted, this ruins the pattern. Could it be that this is why God commanded us not to add or take away from His Word? (Deut. 4:2, Rev. 22:18,19)

An example of how this works is found in the phrase "Holy Spirit". This phrase is found exactly 7 times in the King James Bible. This not only reveals the Divine nature of the Holy Spirit, but also reveals to us that the Bible is a very unique Book. It contains the very signature of God himself, for, it would be impossible for man to plan a book, and a system of numbers, in this fashion.

Please read these pages carefully and with an open mind. It may benefit you to acquire some knowledge of the use of numbers in the Bible, but a mastery of the subject is not necessary. For those who are not familiar at all with the usage of Bible numerics, I include a reference guide in this document.

Numbers are one of the few things in this world that can truly reflect the nature of God in several ways. First, numbers are infinite. We will never count the last number, because it does not exist. Not only are they infinite in positive form, but in negative form as well. This perfectly describes a God who is eternal; a God who always was and always shall be.

Numbers are constant. They never change. In this world, languages have changed, people have changed, the world itself is in a constant state of change, but numbers remain the same. 2+2 always equals 4 and always will. There is no way it will change.

Numbers are one of the few things, according to Revelation 21, that will accompany us from this world to the next. They are as eternal and infinite as our Mighty God is.

This is why His Word is a word of numbers. Please read the following carefully. All of this research can be easily replicated using a Bible search program. I recommend using QuickVerse for Windows. It is the program that I used in gathering this information. A copy will cost about $10-$15 dollars. QuickVerse will allow you to search for a word or phrase, and then list exactly how many times that word or phrase is found, and show you how many verses it is found in. Not all Bible search programs will do this. Also, QuickVerse comes with a master list of all the words in the AV, along with the number of times they are found in the text.

As I said earlier, this information came on me rather quick. Although I have made several attempts at proofreading and double-checking the various patterns for accuracy, there may be an occasion where I have made an error. Let me assure you, that any errors in this book are merely the result of human frailty and not sinister manipulation, just to prove a point.

I welcome any response you may have after reviewing this information. My address is given below. Thank you and may the Lord bless you.

Section 2: A Brief History Lesson

Allow me to begin with a little story-telling.

A long time ago, the story goes, a tiny group of people were being held in bondage. The tyranny of the day was great, and their burdens were heavy. They cried unto God from their chains, and God heard them. He sent them a leader, a man that He had specially prepared, to take them out of this land of bondage, and take them to a new land. A land flowing with milk and honey.

This leader secured their freedom, and led them across the sea to their new home. However, before God allowed these, His people, to come into this promised land, He had to make a few special arrangements for them. First, He wanted to establish them in His truth and not someone elseís, so He gave them a copy of His written Laws, to establish His truth in all that they did. Then, He made sure all the prior inhabitants of the land who knew not God, would never be a threat to His people. Once this was done, God brought His people into this new and wondrous place. God blessed them in this new land, just like He promised, and once they were settled, finally established them as His Peculiar People. He used these people in this special land, to spread His Good News to the whole world, just like He promised their forefathers. He established His covenant with them, and said that as long they served Him, He would favor them and bless them.

The story of the Exodus from Egypt and the establishment of Godís people in the Promised Land is one of the greatest stories that can be told. But, the story I just told you is not the story of the Israelites, it is the real story of the establishment of America.

The similarities, indeed, are great. God has used Israel as a mirror in the Church Age to establish a people that would accept His covenant, and establish themselves as Godís people, for the purpose of spreading the Gospel to the entire world. Our forefathers, the Pilgrims, knew this, and let this calling be their constant incentive to establish a Christian nation, and allow God to reform His Church from the bondage of the government controlled churches of Europe. And just as sure as God delivered His Word in the form of the Ten Commandments to the Israelites as they established themselves in the Promised Land, God also delivered His Holy Word to those Puritans and their followers in the form of the King James, or Authorized Version of the Bible. Do not think, because of this statement, that I am a racist. America is, and was intended, to be a nation of people that were "gathered out of many nations". All who have come to her shores have before them the greatest opportunity ever. The opportunity to become part of the Great Kingdom of God. There is no other nation on this planet where the gospel is so freely accessible.

It was the King James Bible that accompanied the Puritan leader John Winthrop and 700 settlers who came to the New World in 1630. It was the King James Bible that was used to establish the first churches in America. It was the King James Bible that was used to establish the first civil governments in the Colonies. It was the King James Bible that led those brave Patriots in rebellion against the tyranny of King George. It was the King James Bible that was the basis of our Great Law, the Constitution of the United States. It was the King James Bible that our first President, George Washington, laid his hand upon, to swear an oath to preserve and protect the Constitution. It was open to Deuteronomy 28. (read it to find out why) It was the King James Bible that used to be taught in our public schools. It was the King James Bible that literally millions of Americans learned how to read and write with. It was the King James Bible that was the centerpiece of the common American home for hundreds of years. It is still the King James Bible that succeeding presidents lay their hand upon to swear the same oath. It is the King James Bible that many of our citizens have sworn upon to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. It is the King James Bible that is distributed by the millions every year, free of charge, to military personnel, chaplains, prisons, hospitals, nursing homes, hotels and motels, and schools all across this land. And now, for some reason, the King James Bible is not good enough anymore.

This most sacred of all books was intended to be Godís true shining light for all English speaking peoples all over the world. There is no greater representation on earth of the beauty of the English language. But now, we are trading this Wondrous Work in for lesser versions where the language, and might I say, the doctrines, are more modern than eloquent.

Please read the following quotations about our Bible. I will list them without comment, so that you may see and understand what our Founding Fathers knew about the Sacred Text. When these great men spoke of the Bible, it was predominately the King James Bible that they spoke of.

All of the following quotations are reprinted by permission from Americaís God and Country Encyclopedia of Quotations, written by my good friend, William J. Federer. I encourage each and every one to secure a copy of this book.

In his second work, The Truth of the Christian Religion, Hugo Grotius wrote:

"There is no reason for Christians to doubt the credibility of these Books (of the Bible), because there are testimonies in our books out of almost every one of them, the same as they are found in the Hebrew. Nor did Christ, when He reproved many things in the teachings of the Law, and in the Pharisees of His time, ever accuse them of falsifying the Books of Moses and the Prophets, or of using supposititious or altered books. And it can never be proved, or made credible, that after Christ's time the Scripture should be corrupted in anything of moment, if we consider how far and wide the Jewish nation, who everywhere kept these Books, was dispersed over the whole world."

Sir Matthew Hale (November 1, 1609-December 25, 1676), was Lord Chief-Justice of the King's Bench, a position of high influence in England. He testified:

"There is no book like the Bible for excellent wisdom and use."

In his work entitled Some Considerations Touching the Style of the Holy Scriptures, Robert Boyle wrote:

"The Books of Scripture illustrate and expound each other; as in the mariner's compass, the needle's extremity, though it seems to point purposely to the north, doth yet at the same time discover both east and west, as distant as they are from it and each other, so do some texts of Scripture guide us to the intelligence of others, for which they are widely distant in the Bible."

Sir Isaac Newton wrote:

"We account the Scriptures of God to be the most sublime philosophy. I find more sure marks of authenticity in the Bible than in any profane history whatsoever....Worshipping God and the Lamb in the temple: God, for his benefaction in creating all things, and the Lamb, for his benefaction in redeeming us with his blood."

"But through the system of revealed truth which this Book contains is, like that of the universe, concealed from common observation, yet the labors of the centuries have established its Divine origin, and developed in all its order and beauty the great plan of human restoration."

In describing Sir Isaac Newton, the Encyclopedia of Philosophy stated:

"Newton himself was a student of Old Testament prophecies and believed in the Scriptures as inerrant guides."

Immanuel Kant in Halleyís Bible Handbook wrote:

"The existence of the Bible, as a book for the people, is the greatest benefit which the human race has ever experienced. Every attempt to belittle it is a crime against humanity."

George Washington stated:

"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and the Bible."

"The blessed Religion revealed in the Word of God will remain an eternal and awful monument to prove that the best Institutions may be abused by human depravity; and that they may even, in some instances, be made subservient to the vilest of purposes."

Robert Aitken (1734-July 15, 1802), was the publisher of The Pennsylvania Magazine. On January 21, 1781, he petitioned Congress for permission to print Bibles, since there was a shortage in America due to the Revolutionary War interrupting trade with England. The Continental Congress, September 10, 1782, in response to this shortage of Bibles, approved and recommended to the people that The Holy Bible be printed by Robert Aitken of Philadelphia. This first American Bible was to be "a neat edition of the Holy Scriptures for the use of schools".

In 1756, John Adams wrote in a diary entry:

"Suppose a nation in some distant Region should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every membershould regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! Every member would be obliged in conscience, to temperance, frugality, and industry; to justice, kindness, and charity towards his fellow men; and to piety, love, and reverence toward Almighty God...What a Eutopia, what a Paradise would this region be."

In a report to President Thomas Jefferson, Pierre Samuel du Pont de Nemours wrote:

"The Bible is read; it is considered a duty to read it to the children; and in that form of religion the sermons and liturgies in the language of the people tend to increase and formulate ideas of responsibility....In America, a great number of people read the Bible, and all the people read a newspaper. The fathers read aloud to their children while breakfast is being prepared - a task which occupies the mothers for three-quarters of an hour every morning....It is because of this kind of education that the Americans of the United States...have the advantage of having a larger proportion of moderately well-informed men."

Noah Webster, known as the "Schoolmaster to America," used only the Bible and the New Guide to the English Tongue, 1740, in his earliest school. Thomas Dilworth said he wanted to rescue: "Poor creatures from the Slavery of Sin and Satan by setting the word of God for a Lantern to our feet and a Light to our Paths."

It was Thomas Jefferson who said:

"The Bible is the cornerstone of liberty. A student's perusal of the sacred volume will make him a better citizen, a better father, a better husband."

Benjamin Rush stated:

"The great enemy of the salvation of man, in my opinion, never invented a more effectual means of extirpating Christianity from the world than by persuading mankind that it was improper to read the Bible at schools."

"In contemplating the political institutions of the United States, I lament that we waste so much time and money in punishing crimes and take so little pains to prevent them. We profess to be republicans, and yet we neglect the only means of establishing and perpetuating our republican forms of government, that is, the universal education of our youth in the principles of Christianity by the means of the Bible. For this Divine book, above all others, favors that equality among mankind, that respect for just laws, and those sober and frugal virtues, which constitute the soul of republicanism."

In an essay entitled, "A Defense of the Use of the Bible as a School Book," included in his 1798 work, Essays, Literary, Moral and Philosophical, Dr. Benjamin Rush wrote:

"[T]he Bible, when not read in schools, is seldom read in any subsequent period of life....[It] should be read in our schools in preference to all other books from its containing the greatest portion of that kind of knowledge which is calculated to produce private and public temporal happiness."

Fisher Ames (April 9, 1758-July 4, 1808), was an American founder and politician. He was a U.S. Representative from Massachusetts, 1789-97, who help formulate the Bill of Rights in the First Session of the U.S. Congress. He graduated from Harvard, 1774, and became of member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives in 1788, where he participated in the state's ratification of the U.S. Constitution. He was chosen a member of the Governor's Council, 1798, and served until 1800, the year he was honored by the Massachusetts Legislature to deliver the message upon the occasion of George Washington's death. In 1804, he was offered the presidency of Harvard University, but declined due to ill health.

On August 20, 1789, Fisher Ames' suggested wording of the First Amendment was adopted by the House:

"Congress shall make no law establishing religion, or to prevent the free exercise thereof, or to infringe the rights of conscience."

Fisher Ames stated:

"Should not the Bible regain the place it once held as a schoolbook? Its morals are pure, its examples are captivating and noble....The reverence for the sacred book that is thus early impressed lasts long; and, probably, if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind....In no Book is there so good English, so pure and so elegant, and by teaching all the same they will speak alike, and the Bible will justly remain the standard of language as well as of faith."

On September 20, 1789, in an article published in the Palladium magazine, Fisher Ames stated:

"We have a dangerous trend beginning to take place in our education. We're starting to put more and more textbooks into our schools....We've become accustomed of late of putting little books into the hands of children containing fables and moral lessons....We are spending less time in the classroom on the Bible, which should be the principal text in our schools....The Bible states these great moral lessons better than any other manmade book."

The Holy Bible (during the period 1760-1805), was the source for 34% of all quotations cited by our Founding Fathers. After reviewing an estimated 15,000 items, including newspaper articles, pamphlets, books, monographs, etc., Professors Donald S. Lutz and Charles S. Hyneman, in their work "The Relative Influence of European Writers on Late Eighteenth-Century American Political Thought" published in the American Political Science Review, revealed that the Bible, especially the book of Deuteronomy, contributed 34% of all quotations used by our Founding Fathers.

The other main sources cited include: Baron Charles Montesquieu 8.3%, Sir William Blackstone 7.9%, John Locke 2.9%, David Hume 2.7%, Plutarch 1.5%, Beccaria 1.5%, Trenchard and Gordon 1.4%, Delolme 1.4%, Samuel von Pufendorf 1.3%, Cicero 1.2%, Hugo Grotius .9%, Shakespeare .8%, Vattel .5%, etc. These additional sources as well took 60% of their quotes directly from the Bible. Direct and indirect citations combined reveal that 94% of all quotations referenced by the Founding Fathers are derived from the Bible."

So now we understand that the Authorized version has held a revered place amongst our people for nearly 400 years. There is no good reason to abandon it, or trade it in for something of lesser value. We have found it to be a book of superior English, poetry, science, math, history, doctrine, morality, prudence, virtue; a book of the superior Love that God has for all mankind. And now we will see that God has placed His very special Signature upon this Divine Book.

Section 3: Reference Guide to Numbers in Scripture and their Symbolic Meanings

Listed below is a quick reference guide to the symbolic meanings of various numbers that are used in the Bible. This is not an exhaustive list, nor is it meant to be totally comprehensive as to their meanings. I have selected certain of these numbers to focus on in this book, and their meanings will become apparent. I recommend purchasing at least one if not several books written by different authors on the subject.

This list is compiled from two of these books, plus my own research into biblical numbers. In a few instances, I depart from previously published material on Bible numerics, as to meaning and usage of certain numbers, but for the most part, there is a general agreement concerning a majority of these numbers. I also recommend using this list and the research contained in this book, to advance your own study. The Word of God will be your authority and the Holy Spirit will guide you into all truth.

Here are a few principals to keep in mind when it comes to understanding certain numbers in the Bible. Often, numbers above 12 will carry several different meanings, usually dependant on the context of the verse or chapter they are located in, or by what numbers they are compounded by or by what they are the sum of. For instance, the repeated numbers, 22, 33, 44, 55, 66Ö.etc., are used either as repeated numbers, giving them a compounded meaning of the main number, or sometimes they carry with them the identification with the number 11, 2 X 11, 3 X 11, etc. Numbers that are multiples of 10, may carry their own significance, or carry the idea of the root number being compounded, (5, 50, 500, 5000, 1, 10, 100, 1000Öand so on.) In several cases, as we will see later, the number of times a certain word is found in the scriptures, gives that number its meaning, or is associated in some way with a meaning already established.

As you are reading through your Bible, take note of how certain numbers are used, consult the meaning of that particular number, and ask the question, "What prinicipal or doctrine is being taught by this number as it relates to the context of the passage." For instance, in Genesis 24, why did Abrahamís servant take ten camels with him to find a bride for Isaac? In the story, he takes ten camels to search for a wife for Isaac, the only begotten son of Abraham, (type of Christ). When he finds Rebekah, she is carried back to Isaac riding on the camels! Why? Because ten represents the written Word of God, i.e the Ten Commandments, and Godís Word tells us that whenever God issues forth His Word, it never comes back empty handed, but always accomplishes that which it was sent out to do! (Isa 55:11) "So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." That is just one instance of how to use the numbers of the Bible as a tool for interpretation.

It cannot, at least for now, be proven that every single number in the Bible has any great significance. Many are, however, finding out more and more of the mysteries of the Scriptures in these last days. It is the opinion of this author that to omit or otherwise change any of the numbers found in the scriptures is a mistake that should be avoided at all costs. The problem that many of the modern translations have is that they have in many cases, changed the numbers, usually by converting weights and measures into current standards, or by completely omitting a number altogether, replacing it with an invented paraphrase.

Allow me to give one example of this. In John 6, the story of the feeding of the Five thousand is given. In the Authorized Version, verses 5 through 7 are recorded as follows:

(John 6:5-7) "When Jesus then lifted up his eyes, and saw a great company come unto him, he saith unto Philip, Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat? {6} And this he said to prove him: for he himself knew what he would do. {7} Philip answered him, Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little."

Notice the difference between this and its corresponding verses from the NIV.

(John 6:5-7) "When Jesus looked up and saw a great crowd coming toward him, he said to Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?" 6. He asked this only to test him, for he already had in mind what he was going to do. 7. Philip answered him, "Eight months' wages would not buy enough bread for each one to have a bite!"

Not only has the number been omitted, but a paraphrased interpretation has taken its place. The phrase "eight months wages" is not contained in any of the Greek texts. I am curious as to how the regular student of the Bible is supposed to find out that two hundred pennyworth is the exact amount that a person would be expected to earn in eight months time. Is this idea or equation located in the Bible anywhere? The answer is no. I do not doubt that someone has done some digging into ancient history and discovered something, somewhere that told him that a man earned two hundred pennyworth in eight monthís time. But isnít this a case of relying on manís knowledge and not Godís? Those who translated this passage obviously made the assumption that God really intended to tell John to write it down as eight monthís wages, but never got around to it, until the NIV was published. Please, donít do God any favors!

As you can probably tell, I am a stickler for leaving the Bible the way it is. Although I realize that I do not have a flawless apologetic for the King James Translation, I am content with leaving it intact, not making any changes to any portions of it, and letting God supply the interpretation He wants.

Section 4: The Genesis Codes

Coming from a person who hated mathematics in grade school, the study of Bible numerics has been a fascinating adventure into Godís Word for me. I am amazed each day as I open up Godís word and uncover the hidden treasures that are contained in the Authorized Version.

From the earlier chapter on Godís plan for America, I realized very early in my study that God had placed a very special anointing on this special book. That anointing has been apparent for almost 400 hundred years now. I believe in my heart that it is the Very Word of God. What I will show in this section are the textual and numerical patterns that are contained in the A.V., patterns that are not replicated in the modern translations. I will show that not only is Godís signature on the text, but on the chapter and verse divisions as well. Now I realize that this statement will almost immediately be rejected by many who read this. It will therefore not be my intention to try to convince anyone of this principal. I am already convinced. I will only show you the pattern, and let you be the judge.

The first such pattern is found in the book of Genesis. As you will see, many, if not all (I have not yet completed this study), of the chapter divisions in Genesis follow their numerical equivalent in the theme of each chapter.

First of all, it is noted that the book of Genesis contains 50 chapters. This is by design. It has the stamp of inspiration placed on it by the Holy Spirit himself, for 50 is the number for the Holy Spirit. (2 Tim 3:16) "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:" In English, the word "inspiration" is akin to the word "respiration" which simply means "breath". The Holy Spirit is usually represented as being the "breath of God."

Now, we will list some chapters in Genesis, and see this numerical pattern displayed.

Chapter 1. One is the number for Beginnings and Unity. The theme of Genesis 1 is the beginning of the creation of God. Also, when we see the phrase, "Let us make.." we are reminded that "The LORD our God is one LORD." Deut. 6:4

Chapter 2. Two is the number for division and union. The theme of Genesis 2 is how God separated or divided man by removing a rib from him, creating the woman, and uniting them together in marriage.

Chapter 3. Three is the number for resurrection and Divine completeness. In Genesis 3, we find a microcosm of Godís plan for the ages, i.e. the fall from grace, manís sinful nature, the Seed of the woman who is to come, die for sin, and be resurrected on the third day in order to put down the serpent. It was intended for man to live forever. Sin brought death into the world, but the prophecy of vs. 15 resurrects man to eternal life once again.

Chapter 4. Four is the number for the world and worldliness. In chapter 4, the first births are recorded, the first murder is committed (worldliness) and the worldly lineage of Cain is detailed here.

Chapter 5. Five is the number for grace and redemption. It is a number that is associated with the Rapture, (the five wise virgins whose lamps are full, etc.). It is in chapter 5 that we find Enoch being translated for his righteousness. The only other mention we have of Enoch being translated is found in Hebrews 11, verse 5. The word "rapture" is not in the Bible, however, the word "translated" is. This word is mentioned in three different forms, "translate, translated, and translation." All of these combined make up 5 occurrences of this word. The 5th time is in Hebrews 11:5.

Chapter 6. Six is the number for man and the wickedness of sin. In Genesis 6, the seed of man is corrupted by the fallen angels. Also, God looks at the entire world and sees the total depravity of mankind. It is now time for judgement. According to scripture, man has been sinning now for 6,000 years. It is now time for judgement.

Chapter 7. Seven is the number for completion and perfection. In Genesis 7, God brings His judgement on the whole world. God literally puts an end to life on earth. Only a remnant is saved. The old world is done away with. God is ready to start all over again with the new world.

Chapter 8. Eight is the number for new beginnings. Sunday is the first day of the week, Saturday is the seventh day. At midnight on Saturday, the seventh day, the week starts all over again on the eighth day, which is also the first day all over again. This is Godís plan for the ages. Since He has established this as His method, He will not and cannot change it. In Genesis 8, Noah and the animals are released from the ark in order to start the world all over again. There were eight people on the ark who repopulated the earth.

Chapter 9. Nine is the number for fruit bearing. It can be assumed that since there were 7 of each clean animal and 2 of each unclean animal on the ark, that the total number of animals on the ark was a multiple of 9. It was with these animals that God repopulated each species. In the first verse of chapter 9, God tells Noah and his sons to "Be fruitful, and multiply."

Chapter 10. Ten is the number for the Law and for Kingship. There are ten kings represented by ten horns on the beast in Revelation 13. The first king ever mentioned in the Bible is Nimrod, the first King of Babel (Babylon) found in Genesis 10. By counting, we also find that Nimrod is the 13th descendant from Adam. 13 is the number for rebellion and depravity. This number is associated with Antichrist.

Chapter 11. Eleven is the number for judgement and disorder. In Genesis chapter 11, we have the story of Babel. Need I say more?

Chapter 12. Twelve is the number for governmental perfection. It is a number given to Israel, the literal seed of Abraham, and the Gentile church, the spiritual seed of Abraham. In Genesis 12, we find the first promise given to Abraham concerning his seed, who would become a great nation.

Chapter 13. Thirteen is the number for rebellion and depravity. In Genesis 13 we find the first description of Sodom. Notice that it is in verse 13 that the Bible says this, (Gen 13:13) "But the men of Sodom were wicked and sinners before the LORD exceedingly."

For yet more of these incredible patterns in the book of Genesis, see the instructions for ordering the book, "The King James Code" at the top of this article.

Section 5: Various Numerical Codes

In the following section, you will see an assortment of the various numerical patterns that are contained only in the King James Version. It is my opinion, that this proves beyond any reasonable doubt, that God has placed His very own Signature in this book, and it is truly the Inspired Word of God. Many of these patterns have been searched for in the NIV, and "have been found wanting". For a complete list of the codes that I have discovered so far, get the book The King James Code. Your unbelieving friends will need to know that the Bible was not written by man. Your Christian friends will need to know that God has indeed preserved His Word for us in the last days. Give them a copy of the book. Use it as you would a gospel tract. It will force most people into making a decision, one way or the other, about Godís Word, and even their relationship with Him. Then, pray for the results.

The Number Three

The number 3 is the number of divine completion and resurrection. Three is the number for the Godhead. It should be mentioned that the term "trinity" is not a Bible term. The only term used to describe the persons of God is the word "Godhead." I John 5:7 declares to us that there are 3 persons in this Godhead, (unless you have an NIV). So it comes as no surprise that the word itself, "Godhead" is found only 3 times in the Scriptures.

(Acts 17:29) "Forasmuch then as we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Godhead is like unto gold, or silver, or stone, graven by art and man's device."

(Rom 1:20) "For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:"

(Col 2:9) "For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily."

Since the number 3 is the number for resurrection, it would stand to reason that it would be associated with being born again. It is. The phrase that Jesus himself used to describe salvation, "born again" is found exactly 3 times in the AV, and each time it is in reference to the number 3 either in chapter or verse.

(John 3:3) "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

(John 3:7) "Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again."

(1 Pet 1:23) "Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."

Along with this same theme of resurrection lets look at a verse in the Bible that talks about resurrection.

(Rom 1:4) "And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:"

In this passage, Paul clearly points out that the power of Christ and of salvation was not manifested on the cross, but manifested by His resurrection from the dead. We serve a living Savior, and all who are followers of Him, and have been born again also receive this resurrection from the dead. We were once dead in our sins, but now we are made alive in Christ Jesus. This phrase "resurrection from the dead", is found exactly 3 times, all of them in the New Testament. Here are the other two occurrences.

(Luke 20:35) "But they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage:"

(Acts 4:2) "Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead."

A few years ago, Dallas Holm sang a song that became one of the best loved songs in modern Christianity. The title of his song was "Rise Again". He took this title directly from the scriptures. It was a song about the resurrection of Jesus Christ. This phrase is to be found 9 (3x3) times in the New Testament.

The Number Four

The number 4 is the number for the world, creation, and worldliness. This section will be devoted to this theme, and the pattern associated with this theme.

In the very first verse of the Bible, we find that God spells out exactly what His creation consists of.

(Gen 1:1) "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."

These two words, "heaven" and "earth" are found together in the same verse a total of 156 times. This breaks down to 4x39. When we search for the exact four word phrase that is used in Genesis 1:1, we find that it is found exactly 4 times in the Authorized Version.

(Gen 1:1) "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth."

(2 Sam 18:9) "And Absalom met the servants of David. And Absalom rode upon a mule, and the mule went under the thick boughs of a great oak, and his head caught hold of the oak, and he was taken up between the heaven and the earth; and the mule that was under him went away."

(Jer 32:17) "Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:"

(Jer 51:48) "Then the heaven and the earth, and all that is therein, shall sing for Babylon: for the spoilers shall come unto her from the north, saith the LORD."

It is also one of the great doctrines of the faith, that one of these days, God will create a New Heaven and a New Earth. In fact it is mentioned 4 times in the scriptures that this will occur.

(Isa 65:17) "For, behold, I create new heavens and a new earth: and the former shall not be remembered, nor come into mind."

(Isa 66:22) "For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, saith the LORD, so shall your seed and your name remain."

(2 Pet 3:13) "Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness."

(Rev 21:1) "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea."

In the first section of this book, we noted that Genesis 4 displayed the theme of the world and worldliness. It should also be noted that the word "ground", pertaining to the earth itself, is found 4 times in Genesis 4. It is also interesting to note that the one person who symbolized the lineage of worldliness, Cain, is found 16 (4x4) times in Genesis 4.

The Number Five

The number 5 is, without a doubt, the number for grace and redemption. It is the number that is associated with the future translation of the Church. All of these themes can be discovered in the Authorized Version of the Bible.

First we find, that the 5th time Noahís name is mentioned, it is mentioned with Grace.

(Gen 6:8) "But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD."

It might also be mentioned that Noah was 500 years old, when he begat the lineage that was to repopulate the earth after the flood. The first time Noahís name is mentioned is in Genesis chapter 5. The Bible tells us that the flood waters prevailed on the earth for exactly 150 days. This breaks down to 5 months. You may have noticed that in the King James Bible, Noahís name is spelled differently in the Gospels, but not in Hebrews, or the two epistles of Peter. In the Gospels it is spelled "Noe." Did you ever wonder why? Maybe it has something to do with the fact that his name spelled this way exactly 5 times. The last time Noahís name is ever mentioned is in II Peter chapter 2 verse 5. The 40 day time period that it rained on the earth is found 5 times in the book of Genesis, the last time being found in chapter 50.

Now, letís look at a phrase in the Bible that is associated with grace.

(Acts 20:24) "But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God."

Through this and other verses, we understand that true grace is Godís grace. It is his unmerited favor to all who will receive it. This phrase "grace of God" is found in two forms; "grace of God" and "grace of our God". Together, they are found in 25 (5x5) verses, exclusively in the New Testament.

Our Savior is associated with the number 5. In Isaiah, he is given 5 titles. (Isa 9:6) "For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace." He arrived on this earth at the beginning of the 5th millenium from Adam. As the number for Antichrist is 666, the number for Christ is 555. Why? The word "Christ" is found exactly 555 times in the Bible! The first occurrence is Matthew 1:1, the first verse of the New Testament, and in Revelation 22:21, the last verse of the New Testament, literally, he is the first and the last. His title as the "only begotten son" is found exactly 5 times in the Bible.

The number Eight

The number 8 is the number for new life and new beginnings. In Genesis 8, Noah and the animals are allowed to depart from the Ark and restore the earth. Noah and his family consisted of 8 people that repopulated the human race. Noahís name is found exactly 48 (8x6) times in the Old Testament. His name in both forms (Noe and Noah) is found exactly 8 times in the New Testament. When you combine them together you end up with a total of 56. Here we find that the name of Noah is the product of Completion (7) and New Beginnings (8). What an amazingly perfect Book!

Twice in the New Testament, Noah is associated with the number 8.

(1 Pet 3:20) "Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water."

(2 Pet 2:5) "And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;"

After the 7th millenium, in which Christ reigns on the earth for 1,000 years, everything is formed anew and this is when the New Heaven and New Earth show up. This, too, is Godís pattern, and He will not depart from it. Those who say that Christ will not literally reign for 1,000 years at the end of the 6th millenium either do not recognize this pattern, or completely ignore it altogether. This is a shame.

The number 8 is the product of 2 and 4. When you multiply the number for division with the number for the creation, you realize that there will be 2 creations, the old and the new. This is the essential idea behind being born again. The number 8 is also the sum of 5 and 3. When you add the number for redemption, with the number for resurrection, you still have new life, no matter how you look at it.

In the 8th book of the Bible, the book of Ruth, you have this pattern displayed and preserved. The whole theme of Ruth is the redemption and restoration of Naomi, (Jewish Church), based upon this verse, (Ruth 4:15) "And he shall be unto thee a restorer of thy life, and a nourisher of thine old age: for thy daughter in law, which loveth thee, which is better to thee than seven sons, hath borne him." (thatís because 8 is better than 7)

The word "alive" is found 88 times in the scriptures. Its usage, as well, indicates the new life found in Christ through his resurrection.

(Mat 27:63) "Saying, Sir, we remember that that deceiver said, while he was yet alive, After three days I will rise again."

(Luke 15:24) "For this my son was dead, and is alive again; he was lost, and is found. And they began to be merry."

(Luke 24:23) "And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive."

(Acts 9:41) "And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive."

(Rom 6:11) "Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord."

(Rev 2:8) "And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;"

The word "forth", quite a common word for the Bible, is found 888 times in the scriptures. One of its more famous uses comes in this form.

(John 11:43-44) "And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. {44} 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."

In Hosea 6:2 (6+2=8), we find a prophecy concerning the restoration of Israel in the last days.

(Hosea 6:2) "After two days will he revive us: in the third day he will raise us up, and we shall live in his sight."

Encoded in this passage is a time prophecy of "the third day". As Christ was given new life on the third day, so will the nation of Israel, prophetically speaking. Christ is going to revive those dry bones and give them life all over again very soon. The word "revive" is found exactly 8 times in the Bible.

The Number Nine

The number 9 is the number for fruits or fruitbearing. It has already been mentioned that the command to come out of the ark and be fruitful is found in Genesis chapter 9. There were 7 clean animals of every kind and 2 unclean animals of every kind, showing us that the number 9 is to be associated with the animals in the Ark. In Genesis 1:22 God gives the very first fruitful command Ö.. (Gen 1:22) "And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let fowl multiply in the earth." Yes, you guessed it. The phrase "be fruitful" is found exactly 9 times in the scriptures!

We are admonished in the Scriptures, as Christians, to bear fruit. When we look in the scriptures, we find this principal exactly 9 times.

(2 Ki 19:30) "And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall yet again take root downward, and bear fruit upward."

(Isa 37:31) "And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root downward, and bear fruit upward:"

(Ezek 17:8) "It was planted in a good soil by great waters, that it might bring forth branches, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a goodly vine."

(Ezek 17:23) "In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof shall they dwell."

(Luke 13:9) "And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down."

(Luke 8:8) "And other fell on good ground, and sprang up, and bare fruit an hundredfold. And when he had said these things, he cried, He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."

(John 15:4) "Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, except it abide in the vine; no more can ye, except ye abide in me."

(John 15:8) "Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples."

(Rev 22:2) "In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations."

In Leviticus 25, God gives His instruction concerning the year of Jubilee. Here is what the Scriptures say.

(Lev 25:19-22) "And the land shall yield her fruit, and ye shall eat your fill, and dwell therein in safety. {20} And if ye shall say, What shall we eat the seventh year? behold, we shall not sow, nor gather in our increase: {21} Then I will command my blessing upon you in the sixth year, and it shall bring forth fruit for three years. {22} And ye shall sow the eighth year, and eat yet of old fruit until the ninth year; until her fruits come in ye shall eat of the old store."

In this is displayed the numerical patterns. They were commanded to work on the 6th year, rest on the 7th year, start anew on the 8th year, and reap the fruits on the 9th year. Here again, we see that our God is a God of order, and that order does not change.

It is no surprise that in the 9th book of the New Testament, the book of Galatians, we find the 9 fruits of the Spirit.

(Gal 5:22-23) "But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, {23} Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law."

Would it be possible then that the fruit of the Spirit be associated somewhere else with the number 9? Lets take a look and see.

(Eph 5:9) "(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)"

Since Godís Word is a book of order, it is no surprise that we find this in verse 9. Remember, God wrote the book, not man, and He alone is responsible for its patterns.

There is another type of fruit that the Bible mentions. It is the fruit of sin. Here is what the Psalmist said happens to those whose hearts are full of sin.

(Psa 9:17) "The wicked shall be turned into hell, and all the nations that forget God."

Hell is literally the reward and the fruit of those who remain in their sin. God even established a pattern for hell. The word hell is found exactly 54 times in the scriptures. This is the number for the wickedness of man (6) times the number for fruit (9).

The Number Twelve

Although I am very aware of the importance the number 12 plays in the scriptures, I do not have as yet very much to report as far as the codes are concerned. Remember, all of this information that you see before you, has been the process of revelation, and not education. The Lord would tap me on the shoulder and tell me what to look for.

I do, however, have a few, very important codes to share that involve the number 12. God established the pattern of 12 in the Old Testament, when He gave Father Israel 12 sons. It was through them and their respective tribes that the whole Nation of Israel was formed. In the New Testament, God re-established this pattern by appointing 12 Apostles. It is on their foundation (Eph. 2:20, Rev. 21:14), Christ being the Chief Cornerstone, that the Gentile Church is built. As the 12 tribes were intended to be 1 nation, we are expected to be 1 body. No divisions, no schisms, just 1 body. The codes spell that out very clearly. In Acts, we are told this about the beginning of the Church age.

(Acts 1:14) "These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren."

It did not surprise me one bit to find that this phrase "one accord" is found exactly 12 times in the New Testament. It is only found once in the Old Testament, and carries the same theme. I will reserve comment on this subject. Go to your King James Bible, study the use of this phrase, and let God do the talking!

The number 12 is understood clearly from the scriptures to be a number that is associated with the Church, both of the Old Testament, and of the New. Those who are in the New Testament Church are those whom God has quickened, or brought back to life and given a new beginning in His Kingdom. This gives them the association both with the number 12 and with the number 8. They are called the "saints". They are called saints exactly 96 (12x8) times in the scriptures.

The Number Seven

I have decided to save the best for last. You may have, by now, seen some things you have never seen before, but it hasnít been enough to put you over the edge of belief just yet. What follows in this last chapter is, without a doubt, the most incredible set of codes and patterns that you have ever seen. The number 7 is Godís very own number. If His Word is going to have an association with any number, it would be this one. Please read very carefully, and let the Spirit guide you into all wisdom and knowledge.

The number 7 is associated with God, and with Divine completion and perfection. It has become apparent to most who read the scriptures, that the number 7 is the most significant number in all of the scriptures. It is the number most often mentioned when you ask someone to give them a number out of the Bible. As a person reads the Bible, they often encounter this number and conclude that there must be some very special significance to the use of this number in the passage that they are reading. With that in mind, it stands to reason that there must be some extremely important patterns that are associated with the number 7. As you read through this section, you will understand that the use of the number 7 in the King James Version, is what sets it apart from the other English translations. Here are many of the various patterns associated with the number 7.

The very first version of the written Word of God was a little, two tablet book commonly called The Ten Commandments. They are the basis of the laws that govern this great nation. The devil is increasing his attack on the Ten Commandments because of what they represent. God has placed a very important value on the Ten Commandments, for, we find them located in the 70th chapter of the Bible, Exodus 20. The Bible mentions that they were written on "tables of stone." In fact, the Bible mentions 14 (7x2) times that they are written on tables of stone.

As I mentioned earlier, it is very clear that the words, phrases, verses, chapters and books of the scriptures have been arranged in a perfect order. It would be impossible for men to manipulate a group of documents in this manner, especially men who, in many cases, lived thousands of years apart. One pattern that I discovered about the Divine arrangement of the Scriptures was revealed to me as I read Genesis 1:1. This verse details the beginning of the creation of God. Notice it is in the first book of the Bible, the first chapter, the first verse. The first things always belong to God. I remembered that there was another place where there is a similar passage. It is in John 1:1. Notice that it also begins with "In the beginning", that it is in chapter 1, and verse 1, but what about the book. It is not the first book of the New Testament. However, from Genesis to Luke, there are exactly 42 (7x6) books. This makes John the first book of a whole new set!

How do we know which Bible to use? The bible you use must be the true "Word of God." We are told that Jesus is the Word of God in John 1:1. He is also given that title in I John 5:7 "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." It seems odd that most of the modern translations omit verse 7, or place a question mark by it in the form of a note that says that this passage does not appear in some Greek texts! The phrase "word of God" is found exactly 49 times (7x7) in the Authorized Version of the Bible!

Jesus and the Bible are forever linked together. They are in reality, the same thing. He is truly the Word of God. The title of "the Word" that is given to Jesus is found exactly 7 times in 5 verses, including being found in I John chapter 5 verse 7! They are listed below.

(John 1:1) "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

(John 1:14) "And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth."

(1 John 1:1) "That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;"

(1 John 5:7) "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

(Rev 19:13) "And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God."

These verses are copied exactly as they are found in the Scriptures. I have added emphasis to some of the words, but have not changed them in any other form. The capitalized "w" at the beginning of "Word" was put there by the translators, but was not contained in the Greek manuscripts. Do we yet not believe that the Hand of the Almighty was on these men as they compiled and translated this sacred Book? Does the Bible you read and trust in contain this Divine pattern?

The number 49, being the product of 7x7 is a tremendous number, for it compounds the idea of completion that we find in the number 7. This very equation is found right in the text of the scriptures themselves.

(Lev 25:8) "And thou shalt number seven sabbaths of years unto thee, seven times seven years; and the space of the seven sabbaths of years shall be unto thee forty and nine years."

Since this number was so important to God, it is very reasonable to assume that His Word and His Son should be associated with this number. It reveals to us in these last days, exactly who His Son is, and now reveals to us which Bible is His truly inspired Word.

The Bible itself states that the Word of God is a book of parables. The word "parable" is found 49 times. The word "parable" is found 7 times in the book of Numbers. All of them are found in chapters 23 and 24, and all of them are spoken by Balaam, the first time being found in verse 7 because, (Num 23:5-7) "Öthe LORD put a word in Balaam's mouth, and said, Return unto Balak, and thus thou shalt speak. {6} And he returned unto him, and, lo, he stood by his burnt sacrifice, he, and all the princes of Moab. {7} And he took up his parable, and said, Balak the king of Moab hath brought me from Aram, out of the mountains of the east, saying, Come, curse me Jacob, and come, defy Israel." In Psalm 78, we are told that God speaks his Word by means of the parable, (Psa 78:1-2) "Maschil of Asaph. Give ear, O my people, to my law: incline your ears to the words of my mouth. {2} I will open my mouth in a parable: I will utter dark sayings of old:". And we are also told that all the words of Jesus are in parable form, (Mat 13:34) "All these things spake Jesus unto the multitude in parables; and without a parable spake he not unto them:".

It was Paul who warned us about a false gospel.

(Gal 1:8-9) "But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. {9} As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed."

Notice that this warning was so strong that he mentions it twice to get the point across. There is a difference between the real Word of God, and the false gospel. Paul and Peter made sure that we understood this, because they spoke of The gospel of God. This phrase is found exactly 7 times in the scriptures. The 7th time it is used is an indication of what will happen to those who do not obey the real gospel.

(1 Pet 4:17) "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?"

As we have seen before, the Holy Spirit is represented elsewhere in the scriptures as being the "breath" of God. God tells us in Ezekiel 37:14 that He will "put my breath in you, and ye shall live." In Genesis, God did this with Adam. (Gen 2:7) "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." This is the first place we find the word "breath". Notice that it is in verse 7. The word "breath" is found 42 times. God took the number for man (6) and multiplied it by the number for God (7).

In the two listings of the lineage of Jesus Christ is the manifestation of 7 displayed. The account given for us in Matthew chapter 1 lists 42 (6x7) generations from Abraham. The account given for us in Luke chapter 3 lists 77 generations from God who created Adam, the first "son of God", to Jesus, the "true Son of God." Jesusí title of "Son of God" in its various forms is found 49 (7x7) times in the New Testament. It is found only one time in the Old Testament, recorded in the book of Daniel.

(Dan 3:25) "He answered and said, Lo, I see four men loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of God."

Check your modern translations for this verse. The NIV records it as "a son of the gods." There can be no mistaking that this points to Antichrist and not the real Christ! The scriptures do attribute a "god" status to fallen angels. The word "gods" is found a total of 244 times in the scriptures. This is a product which has the number for the world (4) as its multiplier (4x61). These false "gods" are truly earthly and not heavenly.

Our Savior is also given the title of "Son of Man". This phrase is found 196 times in the AV. This number breaks down to 49 (7x7) x 4! The last place that this phrase is used is in Revelation 14 verse 14! Check your modern translations for this same pattern. Is this title found exactly this many times in any other translation? I do not believe that it exists outside the King James Version.

In John 12, the doubters ask Jesus a very simple question. (John 12:34) "Ö.who is this Son of man?"

I know who it is. It is Jesus Christ. How do I know for sure? It is all in the numbers. The phrase "Jesus Christ" is found exactly 196 times in the King James. The exact amount of times that the "Son of Man" is found!

The unity of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Church is established exactly 7 times in the King James Bible by use of the phrase "are one." This phrase is only found 7 times in the scriptures, and, it is not associated with any other idea.

(John 10:30) "I and my Father are one."

(John 17:22) "And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:"

(Rom 12:5) "So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another."

(1 Cor 3:8) "Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labour."

(1 Cor 10:17) "For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread."

(1 Cor 12:12) "For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ."

(1 John 5:7) "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one."

Comparing this pattern with the NIV, I discovered that in Romans 12:5, this phrase has been divided up to change the meaning, in I Cor. 3:8, the phrase is missing and replaced with "have one purpose", which is not the same as being one with someone especially God. God and Satan have the same purpose, to draw all men in worship to each of them respectively, but this does not make them "one." In I Cor. 10:17, the phrase "are one bread" is replaced with "are one body", the phrase is omitted in I Cor. 12:12, and the entire verse of I John 5:7 is completely gone.

There is a two-word phrase that is used repeatedly in the scriptures to describe the total authority and power of Almighty God. It is the phrase "most high". Truly, our God is the Most High God. He is given this title exactly 49 times in the Scriptures. Listed below, are the places where this title is either mentioned in the 7th chapter, the 7th verse, or one of its multiples.

Genesis 14:18, Genesis 14:19, Genesis 14:20, Genesis 14:22, Psalm 7:17, Psalm 21:7, Psalm 77:10, Isaiah 14:14, Daniel 7:18, Daniel 7:22, Daniel 7:25, Daniel 7:27, Hosea 7:16, Hosea 11:7, Mark 5:7, Acts 7:48, Hebrews 7:1.

Isaiah 14:14 is the verse where we find that Luciferís sole desire is to be like theMost High. Hebrews 7:1 is the 49th place that you find Godís special title of Most High.

As we saw earlier, Jesusí title of "Christ" is found 555 times in the Bible. We also found, according to the lineage of Luke chapter 3, that He is the 77th in line from God the Father. When we count forward to the 555th chapter of the Bible, we find that it takes us to Psalm 77! Our God is a God of perfect order, and so then is His Word. Might it also surprise you to know that the word "church" is found 77 times in the Authorized Version?!!!!

Now, letís take this just a little further. Letís look at the 77th chapter of the Bible. It is Exodus 27 (20+7). This chapter has 21 (7x3) verses in it. In the 21st verse we find this passage.

(Exo 27:21) "In the tabernacle of the congregation without the veil, which is before the testimony, Aaron and his sons shall order it from evening to morning before the LORD: it shall be a statute for ever unto their generations on the behalf of the children of Israel."

This phrase is a common phrase that refers to the church of the Old Testament. This is the first occurrence of this name for the church. It is found in the 77th chapter of the Bible, the 21st verse. This phrase is found exactly 21 (7x3) times in the Book of Exodus. It is found exactly 133 (7x19) times in the whole Bible! (19 just happens to be 7+12!)

And the list goes on and on.

Allow me to display some of the 7 related patterns in column form. In this first column, we will list the various titles and attributes given to God and His Son Jesus, followed by the number of times that particular phrase is mentioned in the KJV.

If in the course of my study, I had encountered one or two of these patterns, I might not have thought too much of it. But as you can clearly see, the evidence is overwhelming, and is growing day by day. There has not been a single time, when I dedicated myself, my time and my study to the Lord, relying on His inspiration, that I have not been shown more of His signature in the King James Bible. It is my hope that all who discover these wonderful truths, will also come to revere this most special of all books, the way I have.
