The Number of the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ
Dec 04, 2008
With all the talk about the mark of the beast and the number of his name, most people are familiar with 666, but they know little or nothing about the mark of Christ or the number of His name (3168 in Greek and 792 in Hebrew). Here is a blog posted by Pete Kelly that will help to answer that. It can be found on:
The Bible tells us that "in the beginning was the Word, and the Word was God." Later John writes that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We're also told that "all things were made by Him." It is a true statement, then, that our Lord Jesus Christ is the Creator of all things! So why would we be surprised if we found that God used math?
He invented it, didn't He? Of course He did!
The Holy Bible was written in Hebrew and Greek . . . the Old Testament in Hebrew and the New Testament in Greek. These two alphabets have both "alpha" and "numeric" values. For example. . . In Hebrew "aleph = 1", "beth = 2", "gimel = 3" and so on. Likewise in Greek "alpha = 1", "beta = 2", "gamma = 3" and so on. It is interesting to note that the title "Lord Jesus Christ" has a numeric value of 3168 in Greek, and 792 in Hebrew, and it is evident that these two numbers are found to repeat all through the creation.
For example...the mean diameter of the Earth is 7920 miles....792 is Lord Jesus Christ in Hebrew. If we place the Earth in a box that it would fit in precisely, we'd have a box with 4 sides that each were 7920 miles wide.......7920 x 4 = 31,680.....3168 is Lord Jesus Christ in Greek.
Look at a map of Israel...you will find that the location of Bethlehem is at latitude 31.68 degrees east......3168 is Lord Jesus Christ in Greek. The distance from Bethlehem where Jesus was born, to Jerusalem where he was crucified and resurrect is 6 miles.....6 miles is equal to 31,680 feet.......3168 is Lord Jesus Christ in Greek.
The thickness of Earth's atmosphere where the mixture ratio remains most constant is 60 miles....60 miles is equal to 316,800 feet.......3168 again!
Astronomers have determined that our Sun is merely one of over a billion other stars that make up the Milkyway Galaxy. They've determined that our Sun resides out near the edge of one of the spiral arms of the galaxy, and they've determined that our galaxy is spinning, which is common amongst galaxies. They determined that it takes our Sun 220, 000,000 years to ride around with our galaxy for one galactic rotation. One complete rotation is equal to 360 degrees......220,000,000 x 360 = 7,920,000,000,000.....792 is Lord Jesus Christ in Hebrew!
This relates to the speed that our Sun is actually traveling through outer space as it rides around with our galaxy during a galactic rotation, which is 600,000 m.p.h. Amazingly.....600,000 m.p.h. is equal to 3,168,000,000 feet per hour.....3168 again!
The distance from the Earth to the Sun is 93,000,000 miles. The Sun provides "light" for us on Earth. Jesus said, "I am the light of the world". Jesus also referred to the speed of light in the Bible! Did you know that? He sure did! Matthew 24:27 For as lightening cometh out of the east and shineth unto the west, so shall the coming of the son of man be. Notice that he said "shineth unto the west"....Jesus is implying that "light" has "motion"....which wasn't discovered until about 80 years ago or so. Needless to say...we now know that the speed of light is 186,000 miles per second....okay...remember the distance from the Earth to the Sun?......93,000,000 miles?......Okay.....93,000,000 miles converted to inches is 5,892,500,000,000 inches.....that number divided by 186,000 is 31,680......3168 again!
Am I boring you guys yet? There is much more....but I'll stop with one more....the following example is the distance from each planet in our solar system to the Sun, only the zeros have been removed to save space....and a zero is merely an empty place holder any way....okay....here we go.....Mercury = 36, Venus = 67, Earth = 93, Mars = 142, Jupiter = 483, Saturn = 886, Uranus = 1782, Neptune = 2793, Pluto = 3672. When you add all these numbers the total is 9954......a circle with circumference of 9954 has a diameter of 3168!!!! Praise our Lord Jesus Christ!!!!!
I hope you've found these examples to be exciting and revealing. What an AWESOME GOD we serve!!!! Peace to you and yours, and may the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ remain with you always!
