Home Page  Bible Numbers List     Bible Chapters By Number   Keys of the Kingdom    Prophecy in Stars


The following lessons demonstrate how spiritual numbers shine a brighter light on Bible truth.

Numbers are just a different lens through which we see the same Bible truth, the same person of Jesus Christ, the same messages of Scripture.  The beauty of spiritual numbers is they convey truth in mathematical relationships, displaying an elegance that is awe inspiring.


By two or three witnesses every fact is established.  Those who insist that reading words in a modern translation of the Bible is sufficient for spiritual guidance limit themselves to one witness.  They will most definitely miss all God wants them to know.

For example: Genesis 18, the account of Abraham pleading with God to spare Sodom and Gomorrah if there are believers still residing in the city:

“Then he said, ‘May the Lord not be angry, but let me speak just once more.  “What if only 10 can be found there?”  He answered, “For the sake of ten, I will not destroy it”.  When the Lord had finished speaking with Abraham, he left. and Abraham returned home.” (Gen. 18:32-33)

Why did the Lord stop at 10?  If you don’t know the spiritual meaning of numbers you would never guess yet the number 10 is highly significant in this context.  The number 10 means “Testimony”.  The Lord is saying he will not bring destruction to Sodom and Gomorrah so long as there is a testimony for him in the city.  What kind of testimony does he mean?  Billboards with Bible verses?  The number of the verses gives us a hint: 32 means “Fellowship” and 33 means “Scattered Remnant”.  The position of these verses in the chapter indicates the testimony the Lord is looking for is a fellowship of believers.  A scattered remnant is not a testimony for him.  There is a spiritual principle here that is very significant in the context of prophecy and the coming judgment of the world in the Great Tribulation.  For further investigation, please refer to our study of Aquarius in the section 7.0 Stars on this site.

The point is the reader of Genesis 18 who only reads the words will miss this deeper principle God wants to communicate.  To get all the richness of the revelation of God, we must look at all the witnesses.

Numbers Can Talk // Insights into our methodology for determining the spiritual meaning of numbers //


The Israelites celebrated Passover in the Promised Land exactly 14,910 days after the first Passover in Egypt.  We examine the dates of the key events in the wilderness wanderings and using spiritual numbers we explain the mysteries of the prophetic types encountered on the journey in terms of the people, the places, and the miracles of God.  To read our paper click here:  Chronology of Wilderness Wanderings


We advise you to read the “1.0 INTRODUCTION” section on this site.   It lays the foundation for numbers in the Bible having meanings.

An advanced area of spiritual number applications is the study of gematria, or the numerical value of words and phrases in the Bible.  A separate page “8.0 GEMATRIA” has been set up on the site to show how the the gematria of words and phrases in the Bible can be interpreted using spiritual numbers.  We have found if properly translated using the correct spiritual number meanings, the information in the gematria of words and phrases is directly relevant to what the words and text says.  We translate a book in the bible using gematria to prove this.


The works below are based on the inspiring number research of other scholars.  Their insights have been re-drafted in part for presentation on this site.  For credits see the end of each document.  These studies show God speaks through numbers in many ways.

    After I was truly saved, during the first two months or so, I received a burning desire to know WHY it was 5 loaves 2 fishes, WHY the Ark of the Covenant was the measurements that it was and so on. I told my fiance ( who was in jail) about my new desire I couldn’t explain and he reminded me of numbers he felt he HAD to give me ( he was becoming quite uncomfortable as I told him before this that we don’t play the lottery) but now I said ok. He said that he felt he HAD to tell me I could add a number or combine two if I felt led to. He gave me the numbers and as I looked at my reference table I got from the internet, a sentence started to form and I felt a strong urge to write it down. When I was done, it said, ” Preach the Gospel to the whole world because soon the light that is in the world shall be taken away”. I thought this message was for me and my fiance, but I took it to my friend and mentor and crying, I begged him to pray first so that I could be sure this wasn’t numerology or some other thing not of God. He prayed and I showed him everything. I told him to see what he got if anything and he asked if he could add a number or combine and I said yes. He did and it was his birthday. He hit his knees. I cried. Humbled. Felt incredibly close to God. Sometimes numbers jump out at me.I understand that God set rules that are unshakeable. Rules of science, math, the stars everything has a path even our choices, every one of them, down to minute details so intricate it boggles my mind, have His fingerprints that He created them, in numbers all around us. They aren’t just significant in the Bible, they are still significant. God never changes. He’s consistent. Like numbers. Solid. Where I live now has His reminder to me that His Grace is sufficient ( my favorite verse is 2 Cor 12:9) right on my door. The number on it is 208. But the number designated for my apartment is 213. Two hundred means not enough and eight means The One Who Abounds. I looked up the number and hit my knees and cried.. humbled again. He shouts at me like I told him I needed Him to do. And it’s always the same. Be patient, My Grace is sufficient, I love you. I thought I was crazy or alone in this numbers thing I still don’t have a name for. It’s my spiritual gift. I’ve never heard of anyone having anything like it. No one understands my gift. Today’s date jumped out at me. Not a good date at all and I’m not leaving my house, because what I see is man’s number. I’d have to write it out and show someone who might understand but so far no one can.

      Hi Lynne. Ha! I can relate to what it is like to have a gift others don’t appreciate. The good Lord has shown me things I won’t write here because it is too far out for people, even mature believers to accept. “My ways are higher than your ways” is still true. Of all the proofs of God, and there are many, my favorite is the laws of the physical universe. All scientists agree the whole universe came out of nothing. Big bang or whatever. But what possible POWER could there be that KEEPS the laws of gravity, electromagnetism, atomic strong force, etc in OBEDIENCE every millisecond in every corner of this HUGE universe? Only a POWER greater than the universe itself. Only a Creator God. “Every hair on your head is numbered”! Blessings sister. servant mark

        I just want to add Mark, your gifts are so needed in this end times. We are a many membered body; with many different gifts and talents. He that has an ear…..

    Hi Mark. I am new to your site. I find it fascinating as it compliments my ministry which I have been doing for 5 years. Many people will probably discount your site as numerology but the correct term gametria is valid.

      Hello John. Most of the people who visit this site come believing the Bible is the fount of truth. A gem sparkles when light reflects off it or through it. All we are attempting to do here is to see ‘the Light’ shine from different perspectives. Same gem, same light, but new angles for viewing. We hope you keep an open mind as you explore. Some things will come as a surprise. The truth isn’t always pleasant. Blessings. servant mark

    Really love your writings. Awesome insights! *THANK YOU FOR POSTING*
    God bless you greatly!

    Hi Mark,

    I’m enjoying your post concerning pi, euler’s e, etc. but seems to be too intense. Not that you haven’t done really well with the presentation; just that I doubt many would (or maybe ‘could’) follow it thru to the exciting truth.

    An easier way, IMO, is to see the 66 names in the Pedigree of Jesus, and note that each name is unique (no repeats) EXCEPT for the name of Jacob. The two Jacobs are both found in Matthew chapt. one.

    Everybody knows of the 3×14 generations in Matthew, but few are aware of the 3×10 in the OT leading to David#33. Gen6:9 re Noah “perfect in his generations” got me thinking. The second Ten is in 1Chr1:24-27, and the 3rd Ten is at the end of Ruth, though it “skips” 3 names and begins with the son of Judah and Tamar: Pharez.

    Here’s the significant part — Enoch was the 7th generation and Lamech was the 9th generation, and the second Jacob is the 63rd generation!

    There are some stumbling blocks, which I speak to on the Generations page of my website (http://www.cswnet.com/~duxrow/webdoc5.htm ) concerning the two Cainans of LK3:36,37 and the debate over ‘husband’ being ‘gbra’ in Aramaic or ‘aner’ in Greek.

    In the OT was a Jacob to Joseph, and likewise in the NT, but that first Joseph was NOT in the pedigree (Num1:18) and neither is Mary’s husband!

      Peter said of Paul “he writes many things that are hard to understand”, so I guess I’m in good company. It might surprise you to know there are millions of people in the world (mostly students and scientists) who appreciate the significant constants in math and physics. There would be relatively few who have an interest in Old Testament genealogies.

        No surprise. Seems like everyone has own interests, probably like it should be, considering how diverse God is.. I’ve put a link to this site on my Numbers page, but not likely to help much, I’m afraid… let me know, if you have any way of telling. /s/ dux

          Thanks. Putting a link will raise the Google search score even if no on uses it.

      Hi, It’s been sometime now I see #23, 26,61 all the time. It is almost supernatural. I am extremely serious here. Like I just came back from lunch and I was sitting at whole foods facing the parking lot and I see 3 cars right in front of me on with 23 one with 61 and another with 251 – like 25+1= 26 – Can you tell me more about the meaning of this number combination. I’ll go over your work and form my own conclusion later, but if you can give your input I’ll appreciate it. Very nice work you did here Sir. Thank you
