The Bible and Numbers

And why are there only seven days in a week?

The Bible is full of numbers especially the Torah, the first five books of the Bible. The concept of gematria replaces each letter with a number. Just as V is a letter it also represents 5 in Roman numerals.  The Bible may appear to be words but in actuality it is a string of numbers. Seven, 7, is a key number in the Torah and in other historical societies. The question is why.  The key numbers in the Bible are 12, 7, 6 and 40. Think of all the places 12, 7 and 6 appear in our culture. Then think about 40. “It rained for forty days and forty nights.”  Forty appears to be of importance in the Torah number scheme but in few other places. Or maybe it disguises itself as 4?

    Moses spent 40 years in the desert, preparing his people for the day they were to enter the Holy Land, and Jesus spent 40 days in the desert before he went to Jerusalem. I have found that the number 4 has to do with hidden secrets. 4 x 4 = 16, that Mystery School number.

      If you play with these numbers long enough and pay attention, one finds 40 repeated everywhere and it does directly point to 16. After doing this for some time I cannot believe Moses was in the dessert for forty years or Jesus for 40 days. I firmly believe these numbers are only used to signal a reference to something else. I have my own thoughts on the meaning of 16. You seem to have access to some information I have never seen. In the Mystery School what does 16 refer to?

      • J Rankin says:

        Yes, you’re right, the 40 is symbolic. Perhaps like 4 it has to do with hidden secrets. For instance, what was Jesus doing in the desert for 40 days? The general answer is that he was praying.

        Why was Moses in the desert for 40 years. Because his people were used to soft living in Egypt, and it took 40 years to grow a new tough lot of warriors to take over the Holy Land. That is, if Moses even existed at all.

        Since they were Mystery Schools, I can only guess that it was a 16 point wind star. Their device was a flower with 16 petals. Last year archaeology Daily News showed a device from an Egyptian architect’s tomb. It could be a level or a protractor or something to weigh things with. The use is vague at the moment, but it had a flower with 16 petals on it, surrounded by a zigzag. Since mathematics, surveying, astronomy, weights and measures would have been part of the Mystery School teachings, it’s a good bet that this flower on the ‘level’ in Egypt was connected to the Mystery School teachings.

        My article about the Sator Square also shows this 16 point wind star, which is the fifth layer of messaging in the Sator Square, and I think it was sort of a signature of those in the know. The Sator Square was created by someone who understood Ogham. It’s about astronomy and how to create a calendar.

        If you divide this again, it becomes a 32 point wind star, giving 11.25 degrees. Martin Doutre at Ancient Celtic New Zealand has a great deal to say about 11.25 degrees and sailing, among other things.

        Have you heard that there is no record in Egypt of Moses leaving? When a person of his stature travels, moves or leaves, his whole tribe moves with him. That is like saying our Mayor wants to visit his relatives in Florida, so we all have to pack up and go, all 5000 of us. Do you not think that 5000 people in 40 years walking around in a limited area would have known what was under every sandy rock after a while? Which supports the idea that Moses was a concept not a person. It was supposed to sound absurd so that intelligent people would look further and see a metaphor or a clue.

        So I have a few clues related to the number 40, 16 and other numbers. I will gradually, gradually post them. I think you would definately find my book “The Day the Pole Moved” by Freeborn of interest.

        “Just another clue…” just like Nicolas Cage’s quest in “National Treasure” or could this be the last clue?
