Number 333 symbolism and meaning - Look at the Bible's 333 verses. The almighty presence of the spirit of God

I've mentioned many times in these posts about how like referenced verses have similar and related content and ran across another compelling example of this today. It seems worth sharing...

There are just 10 verses in the KJV and similarly structured Bibles that have a chapter and verse of 33:3. I've included these below. If you ponder them as a group you will find they all have something to do with the powerful presence of a a patriarch, king or Holy Spirit. In a couple of cases these verses speak of the opposite in their reference to improperly worshiping a false power (every number has both a positive and opposite negative meaning).

This is another strong evidence for a divinely numbered and structured Bible. This evidence reveals how perfect our Holy Christian Bible is. Even though many Christians believe the Bible is the Holy and inspired Word of God, at the same time they will effectively dismiss that same statement by explaining that it was the words of men that they were writing because of being inspired by God - or some other qualified explanation of what they think "inspired" means.

The precise DNA-like  perfection of how Biblical text lines  up with the Bible's numbers is incredible evidence that only a supernatural God could have developed such a book. It could not have been conceived by mere men. As much as this creates a quandary in us about how a book we know to be written by men could be supernatural, the perfection in number demands the conclusion - the Bible was written by God. It really does not matter that we cannot comprehend how or why God gave it to us through human hands.

The Bible's ten 33:3 verses...

Gen 33:3 And he passed over before them, and bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he came near to his brother.
Exo 33:3 Unto a land flowing with milk and honey: for I will not go up in the midst of thee; for thou art a stiffnecked people: lest I consume thee in the way.
Num 33:3 And they departed from Rameses in the first month, on the fifteenth day of the first month; on the morrow after the passover the children of Israel went out with an high hand in the sight of all the Egyptians.
Deu 33:3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy words.
2Chr 33:3 For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he reared up altars for Baalim, and made groves, and worshipped all the host of heaven, and served them.
Job 33:3 My words shall be of the uprightness of my heart: and my lips shall utter knowledge clearly.
Psa 33:3 Sing unto him a new song; play skilfully with a loud noise.
Isa 33:3 At the noise of the tumult the people fled; at the lifting up of thyself the nations were scattered.
Jer 33:3 Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
Eze 33:3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

Praise the LORD! (Psalms 103:1-2 and Psalm 117:1-2 --- The exact middle verses and exact middle chapter of the Bible.)

Number Seventy (70) in the Bible - Revealed by the 70th verses




Jeremiah Chapter 25 (the 770th Bible chapter) 
V12 And it shall come to pass, when seventy years are accomplished, that I will punish the king of Babylon, and that nation, saith the LORD, for their iniquity, and the land of the Chaldeans, and will make it perpetual desolations.


 As I have explained in other blog posts, the Bible's text for like numbered book verses has a theme that somehow reflects the definition and symbolism for number seventy. By calling them "book verses" I am referring to all the verses of a book sequentially numbered in the same way chapter verses are numbered.  For example, the 70th verse of the book of Revelation is Rev 3:21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne. Notice how this 70th verse of Revelation speaks of believers persevering until the return of Jesus Christ to reign and rule on earth.

If you carefully observe the 70th book verses, you will notice a common theme of things coming to fruition or about being prepared for when a time of completion comes. In addition to this study revealing a deeper understanding of the meaning of number 70, it also demonstrates the incredible supernatural perfection of numbering of the Bible.

The Bible's Chapter Numbers are Keys to Themes You should Notice in the Chapter's Text

Since every number in the Bible has meaning, even the Bible's chapter numbers reflect some aspect of what themes you will find in chapter contents. This quick post demonstrates how chapter numbers in Matthew guide you to new understandings in the text...

For example consider the simple symbolism associated with the following numbers:

  • Number 12 -- is a number related to government, rulers and those who judge
  • Number 13 -- is a number related to misunderstanding, confusion, deceit, evil ways or doing things the wrong way
  • Number 14 -- is a number of Kings, rulers, authority.

Considering these numbers lets look at Matthew chapters 12-14


Matthew chapter 12 shows Jesus being judged by the authorities. A chapter about the religious authorities judging and condemning Jesus.

  • Jesus heals on the Sabbath – insulting the Pharisees
  • Pharisees plan to destroy Jesus- Jesus withdraws, crowds follow him
  • Possessed blind and dumb, casting out devils by Beelzebub
  • Pharisees ask for a sign but they will only receive the sign of Jonah

Matthew Chapter 13 – Jesus reveals secrets shared to faithful, hidden from disbelievers and those with eyes and ears shut - A chapter about understanding/comprehending secrets

  • Parables – Parable of the seed, good produce but many die
  • Disciples ask, why speak in Parables – Only believers will see secrets
  • Given to disciples to know secrets but not to others
  • To those who have, more will be given, taken from others
  • Peoples hearts dull, eyes don’t see, if they did, they would be healed
  • Explains Parable of the Sower; Harvest will be plentiful, but Tares will remain until the harvest
  • All teaching in parables:  Fills prophecy, secrets to be revealed
  • Jesus says–Have you understood these things—Old and new things
  • Jesus came to his home: a prophet not honored in his own house

Matthew Chapter 14 – Jesus demonstrates he is the Son of God (The King). A chapter that contrasts an earthly king with Jesus and tells of Jesus evidences he is the Son of God..

  • King Herod hears of Jesus – believes he is John the Baptist
  • King Herod was sorry he had to honor his oath to give John's head
  • Chapter contrasts King Herod's power of life and death to Jesus power of life and death
  • Jesus walks on water
  • Jesus power over the seas and storm
  • Jesus heals the sick - Woman healed by touching hem of his garment (Mal 4:2 sign of the Savior)
  • Key verse in chapter is: Matt 14:33 Then they that were in the ship came and worshipped him, saying, Of a truth thou art the Son of God.

 

CONCLUSION:

Notice how by understanding the overall meaning of the numbers 12, 13 and 14, they give you ideas about the types of teachings you should be looking for in the chapters. This does not take away from any other meanings you will find. Instead, by using chapter numbers to guide interpretation, you discover a great new took for getting more meaning out of your study time.

As you consider the number meanings I explain online and in my books, watch chapter numbers as you read the Bible. They will help you notice some of the key points you are to discover in your study.

Is the study of numbers in the Bible or numerology a sin? No. See what the Bible says...

Some believe or were taught the study of numbers is sinful...I don't think so..

Just a quick post to say that I cannot find any hint of Bible scripture speaking against the study of numbers in the Bible or in any other field of research. Below I have quoted the scriptures commonly quoted by those attempting to justify this incorrect belief. ... Numbers were created by our God of order and by being part of our Bible, we are commanded to thoroughly study every part of it.
The assertions made about a supernatural structure in the bible are very difficult to accept for a number of reasons. First, we have been conditioned to be very skeptical and even overly fearful of anything that has to do with symbolism of numbers.  This theory has largely come from the occult or numbers are used to justify strange and even evil thinking. Christians seem to fear the study of numbers so much they seem to run from the subject whenever it is mentioned as if some evil teaching will reach out and grab them. Numbers are an important part of the world we live in and God's use of his numbers in His Holy Word are an important and valid area of study. 
NOTE: Some refer to the term NUMEROLOGY when warning about numbers study. I've seen many different definitions of this term and some even mention it being related to a study of occult numbers -- but there is no evidence this term has anything to do with evil or things of evil. Just because it is sometimes used in this context does not make it a term we should be afraid of. 
God is a god of order and it is no surprise his creation is numerically perfect. For those who think such things possible, might Satan have been working for hundreds of years to find ways to discredit any study of numbers as evil? Maybe all the strange occult writings about numbers was written for this reason?

I am unable to find any Bible verses that speak against the study of numbers. When I looked for biblical arguments against the study of numbers, I found the following scriptures quoted and decided to pass them along for others to examine. The most quoted scriptures against number study is in Deuteronomy chapter 18 verses 9-12:
Deu 18:9 When thou art come into the land which the LORD thy God giveth thee, thou shalt not learn to do after the abominations of those nations. v10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. v11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. v12 For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.
There is no reason to apply any of these scriptures to the discipline of study of God's numbers.  Following are other verses quoted when they warn against the study of numbers.

Deu 4:19 And lest thou lift up thine eyes unto heaven, and when thou seest the sun, and the moon, and the stars, even all the host of heaven, shouldest be driven to worship them, and serve them, which the LORD thy God hath divided unto all nations under the whole heaven.

Ecc 12:12 And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.

Isa 8:19 And when they shall say unto you, Seek unto them that have familiar spirits, and unto wizards that peep, and that mutter: should not a people seek unto their God? for the living to the dead?
 

Isa 47:13 Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee. 

Matt 12:38 Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee.

Matt 12:39 But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: v40 For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
 

Act 8:9 But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one:
 

Act 19:19 Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.
 

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
 


2The 2:10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. v11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:
 

Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
I believe numbers are a part of God's Holy word, and like all its parts, they can be abused and studied and taught with evil intent in mind. As long as numbers are studied to be understood within the context of God's Word, and the resultant knowledge is totally consistent with the Bible, I believe the study is good and a worthwhile endeavor.

The Mystery and Wonder of God's Chapter and Verse Numbering (5:30 verses)

Throughout this blog I write about the incredible discoveries you can make by paying attention to the Bible's Book, Chapter and Verse numbering. They all have meaning....
Notice how Bible verses with the same chapter and verse contain common themes...Even across the Old and New Testaments...
You can read about this in many other posts. Today I just wanted to provide some amazing verse examples to demonstrate the absolute perfection in the Bible's Numbering.

There are just 13 verses in the Bible with chapter and verse reference of 5:30. I've listed them below and highlighted some of their text demonstraing a common theme running throughout them. Number thirty has a symbolic meaning related to holiness, righteousness and purity. Number five is related to covenents, teachings, commands by God and consequences for following them, or not following them (see 5th Bible book of Deuteronomy). Put the numbers together and you should find verse text related somehow to these two themes. Be aware, many different numbers are associated with each Bible verse so don't expect the verse text to match the theme fully, but rather to have some of it's contents that relates to the theme.

See if the verses below reveal to you this theme of righteousness and consequences related to following or not following God's instructions:


Num 5:30 Or when the spirit of jealousy cometh upon him, and he be jealous over his wife, and shall set the woman before the LORD, and the priest shall execute upon her all this law.
Deu 5:30 Go say to them, Get you into your tents again.

Judg 5:30 Have they not sped? have they not divided the prey; to every man a damsel or two; to Sisera a prey of divers colors, a prey of divers colors of needlework, of divers colors of needlework on both sides, meet for the necks of them that take the spoil?

Isa 5:30 And in that day they shall roar against them like the roaring of the sea: and if one look unto the land, behold darkness and sorrow, and the light is darkened in the heavens thereof.

Jer 5:30 A wonderful and horrible thing is committed in the land;

Dan 5:30 In that night was Belshazzar the king of the Chaldeans slain.

Matt 5:30 And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.

Mrk 5:30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes?

Luke 5:30 But their scribes and Pharisees murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?

John 5:30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

Act 5:30 The God of our fathers raised up Jesus, whom ye slew and hanged on a tree.

Eph 5:30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

 If you see this pattern across verses of both the Old and New Testaments, what does it tell you?
  • There is some divine inspiration to numbering
  • The same pattern to numbering is used for both testaments so they likely have the same author.
  • How does the text happen to line up this way. The books were written thousands of years apart? Suggests the numbers were actually assigned by God when he created the text.
  • If this pattern applies here, it should apply to all like referenced verses
  • Numbers have meaning and line up with the text. Thus, they can be used to help interpret verse text.
  • Regarding interpretation, What does the theme found in the 5:30 verses suggest about the text in Ephesians 5:30. It is something to think about.
Be amazed and in awe of our God and His Holy Word! It is incredible beyond our comprehension. Trust it is a creation of God and not of men.
