Example text

In fact, I don't really profess to have any solution on it at all. I've read books about it; I've seen numerology books printed about it, but none would give me any satisfaction, and I find no clue in scripture to locate the thing as to exactly what it is. As a general practice in trying to find a number, the thing you do is find the number of that book--like if you are looking for eleven, you take the eleventh book in the Bible. Then when you have found the eleventh book, take the eleventh chapter and look at the eleventh verse.

Twelve" in the Bible is very rarely divided into eleven and one, except in the case of Judas. The division normally in twelve is ten and two, or six and six. ) Wherever you have twelve, it's divided into six and six, like the six tribes and the six stones and the six more below them and the six in one mountain cursing and the six in the other mountain blessing and that kind of business. Then there's ten and two which is a division of the tribes of Israel, but eleven and one is a division that doesn't bode too much good.

Here we finish the numbers that can be deciphered accurately and positively, except for the numbers forty and one thousand which are comparatively simple. The Number FORTY Now the number Forty is comparatively simple, because it is plainly probation or a testing period of time. Practically every time the word or number Forty shows up in the Bible it is within this connection or context. That is, the number is connected with some type of testing. The first time the word occurs as just plain "Forty" is Genesis 5:13 as the age of a man, but the time the word actually occurs just by itself without the 800 attached to it is in Genesis 7:4 where the flood was upon the earth forty days and forty nights (and again in Genesis 7:17).
