The Greatest Sentence Ever Written

 

THE GREATEST SENTENCE EVER WRITTEN

An essay by Anthony Guida

 

Among every sentence ever written in all of the history of the earth and within every book, essay, letter, article, or poem, there is only one sentence that evidently can stand out as the best sentence ever written. There has never been anything else written that can compare. This essay is not going to describe my subjective, personal feelings or love for this specific sentence’s simple, yet beautiful words, but rather the essay will illustrate objective, demonstrable proof that this one sentence by fact is greater than all other sentences ever written in the history of the earth. The genuine fact that this sentence is the greatest ever written can be established many different ways. Not only has it had incredible impact socially and historically, but amazingly the profound characteristics of this sentence can be proven mathematically, statistically, and concluded scientifically to be the greatest sentence ever written. Do you think this is impossible? I encourage you to keep reading and read for yourself these seemingly outrageous, yet true, claims. But I fully acknowledge that even my descriptions below will only scratch the surface of the carefully crafted attributes that this sentence contains.

Remarkably, this sentence is so brilliantly written that it is actually filled with hidden codes and messages constructed within its composition that await a willing investigator to be discovered! But truly, the very fact that this sentence even exists at all creates astounding implications. Upon researching the brilliant, carefully constructed details of this sentence it becomes entirely logical to postulate that this sentence could not have been written by the hand of a mere human being. So, frankly speaking, a very provable and logical perspective is the conclusion that this sentence must have had extraterrestrial origins that originate from beyond our dimensional space-time continuum, which is what some scientists have already postulated. Who would have thought that a simple sentence could have such profound depth and construction built within it? And yet, it really does exist! Not only does it exist, but this sentence happens to already be known by people all over the world, however, extremely few people are aware of the depths of its immense significance.

Before I share this mysterious sentence let me briefly describe its capabilities even further… If this sentence is taken seriously enough it actually has the power to reshape the course of your entire life. When its hidden, yet invaluable nature is discovered by a seeking individual it will quickly become the very first step in the ultimate shifting of their life. Knowing the nature of this sentence will surely steer someone away from foolishness, selfishness, contentiousness, unforgiveness, hatred, pride, and a plethora of other debilitating behaviors. To explore the nature of this sentence will unlock great depths of wisdom and secret knowledge to the seeker, and the benefits that the exploration process offers even include physical changes as well. For example, exploring the nature of this sentence has the power to physically heal the human body from infirmity, it can teach you how to obtain true wealth in your life, and it can even increase your lifespan too. That is just the tip of the iceberg though, because this sentence even has the power to change your experience in the afterlife as well… but only if it is taken seriously and believed.

I consider it a privilege and an honor to even write about this glorious sentence. How can I, as a mere human being, even attempt to describe the perfection contained in these words using my own flawed words? Truly, my descriptions will fall short of the honor and glory these words deserve. Likewise, the English language is unsuitable to capture the magnificence of this sentence in its structure. The marvel of these words can only be grasped by a much more ancient language. One that has existed since the beginning of the earth. The only language where its full beauty can be seen is the Hebrew language, the ancient language of the Israelites.

Okay, it is time to reveal the greatest sentence ever written.


Here is the sentence:

בראשית ברא אלהים את השמים ואת הארץ

Translated in English:

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

(From The Book of Genesis. Chapter One, Verse One.)


I implore you not to make the terrible mistake of dismissing this sentence as just any other sentence and skipping the remainder of this essay. I’m aware that at first glance this sentence might seem too simple to devote attention to, but the truth is that it represents the embarkation of (quite provably) the most important book ever written, and let me just say that the kickoff sentence is better than you can possibly ascertain at face value – its depths really are indescribably good as I outlined above.

As I do my best to delve into beauty of this marvelously written sentence, I must first give a quick synopsis of how the Hebrew language is meant to be read. Since the enigmas hidden within this sentence cannot be discovered in the English translation we must search for its hidden treasure in its original language.

Some Basics About the Hebrew Language

Hebrew is very different from English. Although many lessons could be written about the dynamics of the Hebrew language, for the purposes of this lesson I will focus on the important points that will aid in this specific lesson.

  • In English we read from left to right, but Hebrew is read from right to left. The beginning of Hebrew books, therefore, is on what we English readers would consider the last page of our books and Hebrew is read backwards. Sentences are read right to left, top to bottom.
  • Hebrew depends much more on the morphology of a word (i.e. the root meaning of words) than English does. This means that processing the Hebrew language is completely different than English.
    • There are morphological derivatives in Hebrew that makes Hebrew totally different from the way we English speakers process language. Stated simply this means that roots of words is extremely important to understanding Hebrew, where this is less important in English. For example, dream being the root word of dreamer, or dreamscape.
    • In English, we can somewhat visualize this with a simple example such as dream, but in Hebrew each letter has meaning that results in the overall meaning of a word. For example, the word “Father” in Hebrew is made up of two letters: א alef and ב beyt: “אב”. Alef is the symbol of an ox head and represents “strength” or “leader” while beyt is the symbol of a tent and represents a “house,” therefore alef beyt means “The Strength or Leader of the House” which is very easily understood to mean: “Father.” English is incapable of achieving this feat because our individual letters do not contain meaning like Hebrew letters do.
    • Not every word has a translation that is this direct, but as you can see the morphology of each letter and the roots of words make a tremendous difference in the Hebrew language. I have heard that the pictograms of the Chinese language are similar in some respects, but the point is that the way Hebrew is read is completely different than the way we read in English, and this has been established scientifically using brain scanning as well. Communicating in Hebrew utilizes different parts of the brain than communicating in English does (Bick AS, Goelman G, Frost R. Hebrew brain vs. English brain: language modulates the way it is processed. J Cogn Neurosci. 2011;23(9):2280-2290. doi:10.1162/jocn.2010.21583).
  • Some Hebrew words are untranslatable and are used to aid in the meaning of the context. In English we are accustomed to every word having a distinctive meaning, but in Hebrew this is not always the case.
  • In Hebrew, each letter has ALSO been assigned a numerical value that was built into the language since its inception. This concept is referred to as Gematria. Very simply a number is given to each letter in the alphabet and those numbers are used for numerical convenience, but have also been used to unpack deeper meaning and pre-designed patterns found buried within the texts.
    • Gematria were the original numeric symbols used in ancient cultures. There were no such things as numerals (i.e. numerical symbols such as 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) prior to about 400 A.D. where they were developed by mathematicians in India. Instead, numbers would be fully spelled out. As an example, to write the number 307,510 it would read “Three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred and ten” in the text. They also used the tally system for smaller numbers or an abacus for quick calculations. For the usefulness of having some kind of numerical symbol, Gematria were used and each letter in the Hebrew alphabet was given a specific numerical value.
    • Gematria was also used by Hebrew scribes when copying old Torah scrolls to new scrolls to verify accuracy of the copy. Letter values would be added up and each line and page must add up to exactly the same numerical value as the previous scroll in order to pass just one of the numerous required tests during the rigorous scroll copying process developed in ancient Hebrew culture.
    • The only other language to assign an alphanumeric value to each letter is Ancient Greek, and it was referred to as the practice of “Isopsephy.”
      • The original language and manuscripts of the Old Testament was Ancient Hebrew, and the original manuscripts of the New Testament were primarily Ancient Greek.

Below are listed the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet with their corresponding gematria (i.e. numerical) value. Remember Hebrew is read from right to left, so the first letter is on the right side.

א  ב  ג  ד  ה  ו  ז  ח  ט  י  כ  ל  מ  נ  ס  ע  פ  צ  ק  ר  ש  ת

  1. alef (א) numerical value : 1
  2. bet (ב) numerical value: 2
  3. gimel (ג) numerical value: 3
  4. dalet (ד) numerical value: 4
  5. he (ה) numerical value: 5
  6. vav (ו) numerical value: 6
  7. zayin (ז) numerical value: 7
  8. chet (ח) numerical value: 8
  9. tet (ט) numerical value: 9
  10. yod (י) numerical value: 10
  11. kaf (כ) numerical value: 20

  16. ayin (ע) numerical value: 70
  17. pay (פ) numerical value: 80
  18. tsade (צ) numerical value: 90
  19. qof (ק) numerical value: 100
  20. resh (ר) numerical value: 200
  21. shin (ש) numerical value: 300
  22. tav (ת) numerical value: 400

The Mathematical Structure of Genesis 1:1

Now that you have a base understanding of the written Hebrew language, we can begin to explore the mathematical depths of the greatest sentence ever written: Genesis 1:1.

Below is some information about each specific word. Transliterated pronunciations are in the parentheses below. Total gematria values are written for each word. As an example of how this calculated, we will look at et (את): et it has a value of 401. This is because aleph has a value of 1 and tav has a value of 400. 400 + 1 = 401.

  1.  בראשית (Bereshit) “In the beginning” – total gematria value: 913
  2.  ברא (bara) “created” – total gematria value: 203
  3.  אלהים (Elohim) “God” – total gematria value: 86
  4.  את (et) – total gematria value: 401
  5.  השמים (hashamayim) “the heavens” – total gematria value: 395
  6.  ואת (ve’et) “and” – total gematria value: 407
  7.  הארץ (ha’aretz) “the earth” – total gematria value: 296

The total gematria value of all the letters in the words in Genesis 1:1 is: 2,701.

The Mathematical Phenomenon of 7’s

The number 7 is very important in scripture, so much so that the Bible has been described to have a heptatic structure because the number is so prevalent everywhere. There are at least 860 direct references to the number 7 throughout the entire Bible and 54 times occur in the Book of Revelation alone. Some obvious examples of the number seven can easily be found all over the Bible and include examples such as:

  • Creation was completed in seven days.
  • Seventh day is the Sabbath rest.
  • Seven lamps on the tabernacle lampstand.
  • There are seven feasts of the Lord.
  • Passover is on the 14th day of the month (7 x 2).
  • The Feast of Unleavened Bread is seven days.
  • Seven sabbaths occur between Feast of Firstfruits and Feast of Weeks.
  • Feast of Trumpets and Day of Atonement are in the seventh month.
  • Feast of Tabernacles is in the seventh month and lasts seven days.
  • Seven lambs offered on Feast of Tabernacles.
  • Joshua marched around Jericho for seven days and on the seventh day after marching around seven times the walls fell down.
  • Naaman the leper was told by Elisha to bathe in the Jordan river seven times to be healed.
  • The genealogy of Jesus from Abraham is 42 generations (7 x 6). The genealogy of Jesus from God (who begot Adam) are 63 generations (7 x 9).
  • The Lord’s Prayer contains seven petitions to God.
  • Jesus healed seven different people on the Sabbath Day.
  • Jesus spoke seven statements on the cross before His death.
  • There are seven churches in Revelation, seven seals on a scroll, seven trumpets, and seven bowls of wrath.
  • Two witnesses are given 42 months (7 x 6) to preach, or 1,260 days (7 x 180). The beast of Revelation is given authority for the same amount of time.

Because the number seven appears so frequently all throughout scripture, it should be no surprise that it also appears in the first verse of the Bible, Genesis 1:1. However, the most incredible fact is the different ways the number 7 is hidden within this one verse. One never would have guessed that so many sevens could be hidden within one short sentence. Below list some of the occurrences of the number 7 hidden within Genesis 1:1 that appear in the structure of the sentence.

  1. The total number of words in the verse is 7.
  2. The total number of letters in the seven words is 28 or (7 x 4).
  3. The first three words contain the subject and predicate the sentence: “In the beginning God created…” These first three words have 14 letters or (7 x 2).
  4. The last four words contain the object of the sentence: “the heavens and the earth.” The last four words have 14 letters or (7 x 2).
  5. There are two objects in the last four words of the sentence: “the heavens” and “the earth”. The number of letters in both objects are 7.
  6. The three primary words in the verse: “God”, “heavens”, and “earth” have 14 letters altogether or (7 x 2).
  7. The other words besides the three primary words add up to 14 letters as well (7 x 2).
  8. The shortest word is in the middle (et), the number of letters in this word and the word to its left is 7.
  9. The number of letters in the middle word (et) and the word to its right is 7.

Very interesting. It is certainly not a coincidence that so many 7’s occur in Genesis 1:1. Next, let’s examine some occurrences of the number 7 hidden with Genesis 1:1 that appear when analyzing the gematria values of the letter and words.

  1. The numeric value of the word “created” is 203 or (7 x 29).
  2. The numeric value of the three primary words “God”, “heavens”, and “earth” adds up to 777 or (7 x 111).
  3. The numeric values of the first, middle, and last letters added together is 133 or (7 x 19).
  4. The numeric value of the first and last letters of all seven words in the verse is 1,393 or (7 x 199).
  5. The numeric value of the first and last letters of the first word and the last word is 497 or (7 x 71).
  6. The numeric value of the first and last letters of the five words in the middle of the verse is 896 or (7 x 128).
  7. The participle “et” occurs twice and the article “the” occurs twice. The numeric value of these words together is 406 or (7 x 58).
  8. The last letters of the first and last words have a numeric value of 490 or (7 x 70).

The Phenomenon of 3’s and 7’s

The mathematical beauty of this astounding sentence does not end with just 7’s. As I illustrate the hidden numerical patterns in this sentence I will reveal the prevalence of 3’s and 7’s, prime numbers, repeating numbers, and reflective patterns also embedded within scripture. The number three is also important in scripture, such as God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. The trends seen below are extremely unusual in writing and strongly point to intentional design placed within the text.

Note: you will read some “probability calculations” in parentheses following each observation. These calculations are meant as reference for the following section which examines the statistical probability of these occurrences.

  1. Total gematric value of all the words in Genesis 1:1 is 2,701, which is 37 x 73. 37 is a prime number and 73 is a prime number. 7 is a prime number and 3 is a prime number. Very interesting. (Probability calculation: conservatively 1/10 & 1/10)
  2. 37 x 73 reflects each other, which is a unique property. The middle 5 words in Genesis 1:1 also have the 3-7-7-3 pattern as well. 37 happens to be the 12th prime number and 73 happens to be the 21st prime number. 1-2-2-1. Which is also reflective and also unique. (Probability calculation: conservatively 1/10 & 1/10)
  3. If you merge one number out of “37 x 73” you get 3773. This number happens to equal 7 x 7 x 77. (Probability calculation: conservatively 1/7)
  4. The values of the first word and the third word add up to 999. When broken down to prime numbers 999 is equal to 37 x 3 x 3 x 3. (Probability calculation: 1/111 for a triple digit of repeated numbers)
  5. The values of the second word, the fourth word, and the fifth word also add up to 999. When you merge 2, 4, and 5 together you get 245, which is 7 x 7 x 5. (Probability calculation: conservatively 1/111 & 1/7)
  6. The values of the third word, fifth word, and seventh word add up to 777. When broken down to prime numbers 777 is equal to 37 x 7 x 3. When you merge 3, 5, and 7 you get 357, which is 7 x 51. (Probability calculation: conservatively 1/111 & 1/7)
  7. The values of the third word, fifth word, and sixth word add up to 888. 888 is also divisible by 37. (Probability calculation: 1/111)
  8. 777, 888, and 999 twice. All are found in one legible sentence. This is staggering. Especially considering this sentence is designed to contain deep theological truth. (Total probability multiplier is technically 1/(111^4) and it was not double counted with the multipliers listed above)

Finally, on top of all of these other numerical/mathematical signs of design hidden within Genesis 1:1 we have also found another mathematical anomaly that needs to be mentioned.

If you apply this formula an astounding number is produced: (Number of letters x product of the gematria letters)/(Number of words x product of the gematria words) = 3.1416 x 10^17, or pie to 4 decimal places. Remarkable.

On a side note, if you apply the same formula to the verse John 1:1 you get e.

Pie and e are dimensionless constants in the universe and are well-known as critical numbers in mathematics, and amazingly, they are mathematically buried within Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1. John 1:1 is well-known for mirroring the description of the beginning of creation to Genesis 1:1 while highlighting the nature of God as the Word (i.e. Jesus Christ). It is very intriguing that these two specific verses contain such important mathematical constants hidden within their structure.

The Statistical Relevance

At this point you have to be wondering what the statistical likelihood of all of these numerical and mathematical anomalies occurring in one single sentence would be. Okay, let’s learn about some basic calculations to determine probability.

In order to understand the basics of calculating probability we must understand the chances of an occurrence. For example, the chances of a specific word having exactly 7 letters is 1/7, or a “one in seven probability”. If we have two “rules” such as this problem: “What are the chances of the total number of words equaling a multiple of seven AND the total number of letters equaling a multiple of seven?” This would be 2 rules. To calculate this probability we would multiply 7 x 7, (or 7^2) which would equal 49. Therefore, we would have a one in 49 probability of having both of these two occurrences simultaneously and purely by accident if you were writing out a sentence. If we had 3 rules it would be 7 x 7 x 7 (or 7^3) = 343 (one chance in 343). Four separate rules is 7^4 = 2,401 (one chance in 2,401), five rules would be 7^5 = 16,807, etc.

Let’s calculate the probability of the first 9 occurrences of sevens that we discovered existing in Genesis 1:1. What we are looking for in this number is the likelihood that if you were to sit down and write a sentence what the chances are that it would meet all of the occurrences listed above.

  • 1 occurrence (total number of words is 7): 7^1 = 1 in 7
  • 2 occurrences (total number of letters is a multiple of 7): 7^2 = 1 in 49
  • 3 occurrences (total number of letters in first 3 words multiple of 7): 7^3 = 1 in 343
  • 4 occurrences (total number of letters in last 4 words is multiple of 7): 7^4 = 1 in 2,401
  • 5 occurrences (total number of letters in objects in 2nd half of sentence multiple of 7): 7^5 = 1 in 16,807
  • 6 occurrences (total number of letters in primary words multiple of 7): 7^6 = 1 in 117,649
  • 7 occurrences (total number of letters in non-primary words multiple of 7): 7^7 = 1 in 823,543
  • 8 occurrences (total number of letters in middle word and word to the left are 7): 7^8 = 1 in 5,764,801
  • 9 occurrences (total number of letters in middle word and word the right are 7): 7^9 = 1 in 40,353,607

What we see is that in the first 9 occurrences of 7’s that were found in Genesis 1:1 is that the likelihood of regenerating a single sentence with that many 7 occurrences simultaneously in one sentence would take approximately 40.3 million attempts before you might accidentally land on another sentence that has similar numerical features.

Here is what 40.3 million looks like from another angle. Let’s say that you spent all of your time in a standard working year attempting to write this one sentence that meets all of these occurrences of 7’s. Therefore, if you worked 40 hours/week, 50 weeks/year = approximately 2,000 hrs/year or 120,000 minutes/year. Let’s say you wrote one sentence every minute. So how many years would it probably take you to write this one sentence with 9 occurrences of 7’s? 40,353,607/120,000…

It would take you 336 years of full-time work. Wow.

If we consider the author (or editor) of the first five books of the Bible being Moses, and that Moses likely only worked for 80 years of his life (because the first 40 years he was hanging out in Pharaoh’s palace in Egypt), then it would have taken him 4 lifetimes (average work life of a human being overestimated at 80 years) to write just this first sentence in the Pentateuch, while completely ignoring the rest of scripture that he is credited with authoring and/or editing. Is it likely that he came up with this sentence all on his own? No, not likely.

Unfortunately the problem gets worse though, because if you include gematria then we need to add 8 more occurrences of 7’s for a total of 17 different 7’s simultaneously existing in one single sentence.

  • Gematria 8 occurrences: 7^8 = 1 in 5,764,801
  • First 9 occurrences: 7^9 = 1 in 40,353,607

Do we just add these numbers together to get the probability? No. We must multiply them.

5,764,801 x 40,353,607 = One chance in 232,630,513,987,207

(Now this number is beginning to look more like the national debt of the USA. Yikes!)

With this new number let’s assume that Moses had helpers. Let’s say that Moses had 100,000 people fully dedicated to helping him write one single sentence while meeting all of the occurrences of 7’s. How many years would it take 100,000 people who can all write one sentence every minute for 80 work years to write a sentence that yields 17 simultaneous occurrences of 7’s?

It would take 19,390 years (or 240 lifetimes) of all 100,000 helpers. Now we can see that it is extremely unlikely that Moses along with any realistic number of the ancient Hebrews all working together could have ever created this sentence.

Unfortunately the problem gets even worse though… If we add the likelihood of the Phenomenon of 3’s and 7’s (see the previous section) then the probability is even lower. If you’d like to follow along in my calculations then refer to the probabilities I used in parentheses back in that section. I attempted to be as conservative as possible with some of the probabilities because many of them are simply too complicated for me to figure out. For example, what is the probability that the total gematric value of Genesis 1:1 would equal a number that is only divisible by two prime numbers while these two prime numbers are reflective of one another simultaneously AND their position in prime number sequencing is also reflective of one another? I really don’t know how to calculate this so I very conservatively gave it a 1/10 chance multiplied by another 1/10 chance (i.e. 1/100 chance total). This is more than fair and the actual probability is undoubtedly much, much lower.

If we factor all of the additional occurrences from the Phenomenon of 3’s and 7’s section then where do we end up in total?

We discover a probability of 1 chance in 1.2113 x 10^29 or 1 in 121,130,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 in order to generate this sentence.

Allow me to explain the size of this number because most people cannot even grasp the concept of numbers that are this big.

This number is so big that if you had 1,000 supercomputers capable of generating 100 million sentences per second it would still take them 38 billion years to create a sentence like Genesis 1:1!

Presuming that the Big Bang Theory is correct, then this number is significantly bigger than all of the theoretical seconds of existence in our observable universe, assuming the universe is approximately 14 billion years old. (For the record, I disagree completely with the Big Bang Theory. Instead, I believe God said, “Let there be light” and it was so.)

You’ve probably heard of a concept called the Infinite Monkey Theorum, right? This theory states that a monkey hitting random keys on a typewriter for an infinite amount of time would eventually compose some of the works of Shakespeare? Well, consider this fact: if one million monkeys with typewriters had all of the time in the entire existence of the universe to bang on keys they would still be incapable of writing a sentence as numerically/mathematically brilliant as Genesis 1:1, let alone Shakespeare.

Statistically speaking, we can quite reasonably prove that was impossible for a human being (especially ones that did not have access to supercomputers thousands of years ago) to write this sentence.

You might think to yourself, Well this sentence really isn’t that complex and anyone could have accidentally written it… how complicated is it to write ‘In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth’?” I would answer like this:

  • How much more impossible does this become when the very first sentence of literally the most influential and controversial spiritual book to ever exist on earth contains such incredible numerical/mathematical properties? Do you really believe that the first sentence of the venerated Jewish Torah and the Christian Bible, which is proven to be thousands of years old, could have coincidentally contained all of these numerical/mathematically anomalies by pure accident?
  • Also, did you know that the Bible is literally filled with verses and sections of scripture that exhibit similar numerical/mathematical properties as Genesis 1:1? For example, virtually identical, heptadic numerical properties can be found in the genealogy of Jesus Christ as written in Matthew 1:1-18. Again, these occurrences of 7’s and other numerical/mathematical anomalies are so abundant in scripture that they would be statistically impossible for a human being (or even a warehouse of supercomputers) to ever write them!
  • I would challenge anyone doubting the mathematical significance of this sentence to go and compose a similar sentence on their own. This can be done using any language of choice as long as alphanumerics can be appropriately assigned to the letters and the written sentence is readable and understandable by anyone. Please give it a try and prove that your sentence contains the same number of mathematical anomalies as Genesis 1:1 does using the same “rules” illustrated above (such as, make sure your sentence has exactly 7 words, make sure the total number of letters is a multiple of 7, etc). Feel free to use supercomputers to aid you in this endeavor if you’d like.

Extraterrestrial Origins Beyond Our Space-Time Continuum

At this point I have demonstrated that the mathematical structure of Genesis 1:1 is definitely a statistical impossibility for existence. It is impossible that Moses, or any other human being from ancient history, could have written this sentence. So, where do we go from here? What does this mean? How does Genesis 1:1 exist!?

The simplest plausible explanation is that Genesis 1:1 could not have been written by humans, and therefore the sentence must have extraterrestrial origins. However, extraterrestrial origins is not enough of an explanation. The mathematical structure of this sentence is simply too profound for even little gray alien creatures to compose it (if they exist); the chances of production are simply too impossible even with billions of years at their disposal. Therefore, the extraterrestrial author must also have operational capacities beyond our space-time continuum in order to logistically generate such a sentence. This theory about the creation of Genesis 1:1 (as well as the rest of the Holy Bible), having extraterrestrial origins outside our space-time continuum that is, has been postulated by numerous doctors and scientists who have taken the time to thoroughly investigate the origins of scripture. Notably, Dr. Chuck Missler and Dr. Ivan Panin are two who have confirmed and agreed to this postulation, and much of their research has been represented in this essay. These men have also postulated that the Author of the Bible has built an “automatic security monitor” which is inscribed into the original text in order to preserve its integrity throughout time. Really? How is this possible? Well, if the Author of scripture is able to construct it in a way that is impossible for another to replicate or alter it, then the fingerprint (or watermark) of the original Author would be easily distinguishable from a fake. Therefore, this “automatic security monitor” built within the text would be verifiable by ingenious numerical/mathematical construction hidden within the words and sentence structure! This is a fascinating theory to say the least, and it just so happens that Dr. Ivan Panin dedicated his life to uncovering the “fingerprint of the Author” that is embedded within all of scripture – not just Genesis 1:1.


A quick summary of Dr. Ivan Panin: Dr. Panin was born in Russia in 1855 and migrated to America when he was 22 years old. He was accepted to Harvard University and there he studied Greek and Hebrew until earning a Master’s Degree. At age 35 he came to faith in Jesus Christ through reading and studying the Bible and discovering that there was a hidden, mathematical structure undergirding all of Scripture. He spent the remainder of his life researching Biblical numerical patterns and recorded his findings in over 40,000 handwritten pages. He uncovered patterns of 7’s, 3’s, and 37’s hidden all over scripture and even used his research to validate the authenticity of certain manuscripts and translations of the Bible. Dr. Panin’s life work is truly miraculous (perhaps just as miraculous as someone graduating from Harvard and becoming a dedicated follower of Jesus Christ!) and anyone who has had their faith strengthened through Biblical numerics owes a debt of gratitude to this amazing man of God.


In the previous paragraph I mentioned that “numerous doctors and scientists” agree that Genesis 1:1 (as well as the rest of the Bible) has extraterrestrial origins beyond our space-time continuum. Who are these professionals? These other professionals include, but are not limited to: mathematicians, statisticians, physicists, astronomers, cosmologists, engineers, medical doctors, chemists, biologists, geophysicists, nuclear physicists, geneticists, physiologists, psychologists, etc.

What we know is that thousands of professional scientists in dozens of different fields of expertise are in agreement that the biblical account of creation is the true and accurate account of creation and that this historical account was written and recorded in the Holy Bible by an extraterrestrial Being, Who is highly superior to the human race, and One who exists outside of our space-time continuum. That is, they believe that Genesis 1:1, and subsequently the rest of the Holy Bible, was written by God.

To these professionals, the fact that “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth” was written by God Himself is the only logical conclusion that fits the dataset that we have available to us. Some of the most profound data includes the marvelous mathematical prowess contained within Genesis 1:1 and numerous other sections of scripture as well. However, other data that confirms that God is the Author of creation is clearly visible in every field of study: geology, environmental science, plant science, evolution sciences (although most of the evolution researchers tend to deny the evidence they see as being from God), archaeology, biology, chemistry, astronomy, philosophy, history, physics, mathematics, statistics, and many, many other fields of study. The ability to find the evidential fingerprint of God in all aspects of creation is echoed within scripture, specifically within Paul’s letter to the Romans.

“…What may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse…” (Romans 1:19-20)

The evidence of a Designer of our world is clearly visible, but only to those with the humility and the integrity to acknowledge it.

The Social and Historical Impact of Genesis 1:1 and The Bible

Genesis 1:1 is the most profound sentence ever written for many reasons, but most importantly because this sentence marks the perfect beginning of the most influential book ever written: The Bible. Plainly speaking, the Bible is a momentous and powerful book, and it has a long and dramatic history with its deep influence reaching every corner of the planet and shaping the course of our world in considerable ways. Despite the forces that continually work against it, society will never stop being affected by the power of the Bible.

Think about all of the artwork that has stemmed from the Biblical influence. Famous artists of history such as Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Rembrandt, Diego Velazquez, and Francisco Goya all created created beautiful statues and marvelous paintings based on inspirational Biblical stories. Worship music can be traced back millennia, beginning with the Song of Moses; then the Psalms of the Bible; Hymns emerged such as ‘O Splendor of God’s Glory Bright’, ‘O Emmanuel’, ‘Joy to the World’, ‘The Old Rugged Cross’, ‘How Great Thou Art’, and ‘Amazing Grace’; gospel music began to be written by legends such as Sam Cooke, Sidney Bechet, Mahalia Jackson, Johnny Cash, and even Elvis Presley; now we find ourselves with the modern Christian music that is prevalent in our culture today. The influence of the Bible within all societies in world history is simply unmatched.

Tell me, how many towns and cities can you visit today where you won’t find at least one church located within it? Think about it. Nearly every village, town, and city in all of North America, South America, Europe, Australia, and much of Asia and Africa you will find some kind of Christian church. Even the nations that are hostile to Christianity undoubtedly have an underground church in operation. Is there anywhere on earth where missionaries have not traveled to deliver the gospel? Truly, the Bible has been, and will always be, one of the most powerful forces on earth. And it all begins with Genesis 1:1.


Since the time of Jesus humanity has fought a hard war against the Bible to censor its life-changing words and prevent its invaluable knowledge from being received by the people of the world. Many people and organizations with malicious intentions have used the words of the Bible selfishly in order to justify unrighteous gains. Although most denominations inevitably became corrupt and ultimately fell under similar judgment, none of them have used the Bible more selfishly in history than the Roman Catholic Church, which monopolized control of the message of the Bible by keeping it held hostage in only the Latin Vulgate translation for centuries. This was a dead language that no one in the world understood except for the Catholic priests, rendering them the only keepers of the key of translation. The peoples’ desire to hear the living words of the Bible was prevalent everywhere, and the church used that to its advantage. History clearly shows that a selfish ambition for world domination began to arise from an evil union of the church and state (that state being Rome) which ultimately formed Roman Catholicism. Once the Roman Catholic Church gained a strong foothold as a seat of power over the western world is wasn’t long until indulgences became commonplace and then wars to execute that authority such as the Crusades quickly followed as well, where the Roman Catholic Church pressured the nations of Europe to instigate several wars against Islam. Very influential and powerful secret societies such as The Knights Templar emerged during the Crusades and they doubtlessly (and wrongfully) used the Bible as their main tool for financial, political, and military gain in favor of the Roman Catholic Church. The Knights Templar have since evolved into many secret societies that are currently in operation worldwide, and is it any surprise that right now the Roman Catholic Church is the largest and wealthiest corporation in the world?

After the Crusades ceased a new threat began to emerge against the Roman Catholic World Order: the Protestant Reformation, and the conflict that ensued to suppress Protestantism from taking root in society was precisely what launched Europe into the Dark Ages. The center of all the conflict in the Dark Ages revolved around one fundamental tool of power: The Bible. Beginning with John Wycliffe, the Bible began being translated from the Latin Vulgate (unreadable to the average layperson and solely interpreted by the Catholic Church) into English and several other European languages, and Wycliffe formed the beginning of a very strong movement against the Catholic orthodoxy. This quickly became a major problem for the Catholic Church because their domination over the common people depended on them maintaining full control of the Bible. John Wycliffe and the Roman Catholic Church’s confrontations became so harsh that in 1378 he publicly announced the papacy to be antichrist. Almost unbelievably, 43 years after his death Catholic officials dug-up his bones, burnt them to ashes, and then threw the ashes into the river! (Talk about holding a grudge!) Wycliffe’s teachings and influence with the people persevered though, and several men picked up where he left off in translating the Bible. This was when the Roman Catholic Church began to seriously lose their monopolistic control over Christian spirituality and they went on a witch-hunt (quite literally) to persecute anyone who attempted to translate the Bible into English, or any who supported Protestantism. Catholic orthodoxy had to be maintained whatever the cost, and thus began the Inquisition…

Most people don’t know this, but the Inquisition was much more an attempt to thwart the translation of the Bible into English and suppress the influence of Protestantism than it was about targeting witches. During this dark time the Jesuit Order emerged from the Catholic Church to suppress the Protestant Reformation behind the scenes, and this order still has a very strong influence over the world today, which continues to be exercised behind the scenes. Most people date the Reformation at 1517 when Martin Luther posted the 95 theses to Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, but this event only ignited an already growing Reformation movement that had been slowly spreading all over Europe since the mid 1300s, mostly beginning with John Wycliffe. Great men of the faith such as William Tyndale and John Rogers (alias Thomas Matthew) were the Bible translators who picked up where Wycliffe left off and gave us the English translation that we still use to this day. This amazing triumph of faith rewarded them with a brutal martyrdom though. John Rogers was the first victim of Queen Mary (aka the infamous “Bloody Mary” of the Inquisition) when she ordered that he be burned alive at the stake; Rogers left behind his wife with ten children. Queen Mary continued onward doing the bidding of the Jesuit Order and killed nearly 300 Protestants by burning them at the stake. Literacy of the common people was outlawed during the Inquisition and subsequently book burning became routine. Can you guess which book was the #1 choice for burning? The Bible.

Following the Inquisition many Bible-loving, Christian puritans were highly motivated to emigrate from the tyranny of Europe and England. Most notably were the pilgrims who emigrated to America, specifically on a quest to flee to a place where they could practice their faith and honor the Lord in peace. Early Americans were so biblically focused that they collectively identified themselves as the “American Israel.” They couldn’t deny the fact that they had escaped the oppression of tyrant kings, fled to the wilderness, and eventually found their own promised land, all in perfect parallel to ancient Israel. Benjamin Franklin even played along with this notion and designed his depiction of “America’s Great Seal” that pictured the story of Exodus where Moses led the Israelites through the Red Sea, and around the border of the seal it read “Rebellion to Tyrants is Obedience to God.”

[Side Note: Incredibly, it is possible that many of the pilgrims were actually living descendants of the ancient Israelites. History managed to lose track of the Israelites after their conquering and dispersion by Assyria in 722 BC, but in the last couple of centuries archeology has revealed that the Israelites simply went by a different name, which confused historians attempting to trace their movements. A very plausible explanation is that they began to go by the name Beth-Khumri (i.e. House of Omri) which was one of Israel’s greatest kings. (Omri was the king who caused Samaria to be Israel’s capital city.) By following the people of Omri (originally pronounced Ghomri or Gomer – not to be confused with Hosea’s wife) through history, one discovers evidence for them migrating across the Caucasus mountains and eventually becoming the Celtic people, who populated much of Europe and migrated as far west as England, Ireland, and Scotland. This is precisely where the pilgrims and puritans who sailed over to America on the Mayflower emigrated from.

Even though most people believe that the United States began as a Christian nation, many do not know about the very serious Freemason influence during the creation of the government (and yes, these two ideologies are mutually exclusive). Some of the most notable Freemasons among the founding fathers include: George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, John Hancock, Paul Revere, John Marshall, and very likely Thomas Jefferson. Of all the signers of the Declaration of Independence, the US Constitution, and Generals in the Continental Army, it is estimated that 33% were Freemasons. Regardless of the heavy Masonic influence at the founding of America, it could not realistically disassociate from the strong Christian roots laid down by the pilgrims who initially populated the area, and many of the founding documents for the United States of America contain very obvious biblical ties written in order to appease the prevalent faith of the public. However, even though the United States of America did actually start with a strong Christian foundation embedded within the people, I personally do not consider America to be a Christian nation. Rather, it seems to me that America began as a Freemason-controlled nation with an inescapable “Christian problem” that they were forced to play along with for centuries. It was this same Masonic-led government and their greedy corporate allies, not the strongly Christian pilgrims/puritans, who were directly responsible for the oppression of the native American people.

Since the days of Constantine we can see that famous politicians and royalty generally have a strong affiliation with whichever Christian denomination currently holds the most sway over the people in their area; for centuries it was Roman Catholicism. Even though many of these leaders publicly supported the church in their speech, they would often commit grave atrocities against the church during their rule. American history is no different from the rest. Nearly all presidents and politicians in American history have publicly proclaimed some sort of affiliation with the Christian church (including Clinton, both Bushes, Obama, Trump, and Biden), however much of their policy ultimately turns out to be antichrist.

“These people draw near to Me with their mouth, and honor Me with their lips, but their heart is far from Me…” (Matthew 15:8)


Unequivocally, the Bible has been central in significance to history and world events and to doubt this fact is to doubt history itself. Countless wars have been fought using the Bible, immense obstacles had to be overcome for it to be translated into English, book burnings attempted to eliminate its access by the common people, blood from persecution and martyrdom has been spilt in every nation on the planet, and even world superpowers and governments have historically allied with Christianity in the hope of feeding off of its power. The Bible is immensely important in our history and culture and its power to influence the world is undeniable. There are very, very good reasons why the Bible is the bestselling book of all time, yet even so, few people recognize that when they hold a Bible they are holding a transcendental treasure in their hands.

This Sentence Can Reshape Your Life and Your Afterlife

Indisputably, Genesis 1:1 is the greatest sentence ever written and marks the beginning of the most powerful book ever written. We have observed the mathematical, scientific, and statistical prowess of Genesis 1:1 and we’ve also (very briefly) covered the immense historical and societal impact that the Bible has had over the centuries. Now, the final component that remains to be discussed, which is the marvelous power this sentence has to change the reader’s life. Almost unbelievably, this sentence is constructed in such a fashion that upon reading it the reader is faced with an immediate and serious choice in their journey, and the direction they choose has the potential to reshape their life from that moment onward. The choice is simply this: will you believe the words that are written?

It has been said that if one can believe the words of Genesis 1:1, then believing the remainder of the Bible will come easily. Let’s examine how that statement could apply to someone on the fence of belief that Genesis 1:1 is true. What does the decision to believe the truth of that sentence encompass?

Amazingly, to believe that Genesis 1:1 is true you are ultimately led to believe a lot about God. First and foremost, you would be recognizing the fact that God is real and is the Creator of all things, and if God created all things then He must have created you too. If He was powerful enough to create everything, then that would include the human soul; therefore, God would have to be a personal God, because He would fully understand your feelings, emotions, struggles, desires, fears, regrets, and how all of your life experiences have impacted you. In other words, God would be able to identify with your heart better than anyone on earth, and He would know you better than you do.

By believing Genesis 1:1 you would also be compelled to recognize that God and His ways are far, far superior to your ways, and you certainly do not have Him figured out the way you think you do. You may soon be forced to admit that you’ve been wrong about some of your previously held beliefs and ideologies. Ultimately, your logical path towards God would lead you to the inescapable fact that God must have created free will in people (i.e. the ability to make their own choices; even choosing to believe in the existence of their own Creator or not), and free will would lead to a host of problems all over the world. Why? Because, logically, if God is good but people are given the free will to disobey Him, then it would really be peoples’ fault for the evil and suffering that takes place in the world, and not God’s fault at all. People can certainly hurt other people, because free will enables them to do so, and that definitely doesn’t mean that God was behind the evil action. This premise extends to the conclusion that God is not behind much of the suffering that takes place in peoples’ lives, or catastrophic events that seem to always be attributed to God all over the world. Because people have the free will to rebel against a holy and righteous God, there will be those who do rebel from Him and commit some of the worst evils imaginable. These men would rightfully deserve punishment, and God must be a God of justice who will execute that punishment in the perfect manner that is fitting for the crime. The concept of free will would also trouble you deeply because within it lies a seemingly incurable problem: as long as people have free will there will always be evil, suffering, and death on earth. Therefore, you would hope that God is good enough to save humanity from the trap we as humans have caught ourselves in. You would quickly conclude that He must be that good, because if He is the Creator of all things then absolutely nothing can stop Him from accomplishing His will, and no amount of evil can stop the power of God from overcoming any amount of evil when He controls all of eternity. Finally, believing in Genesis 1:1 would also cause you to believe in life after death, because if God is the creator of life then he must have full authority over life and death, and nothing can stop Him from raising the dead whenever He chooses. Therefore, the fear of death (and the fear of many other things) would theoretically vanish, and that fear should be replaced with immense faith, hope, and a deep love for God.

By simply believing the words in Genesis 1:1, the reader turns to a path of many discoveries, admissions, and surprising truths about God. After an individual begins to truly seek the Lord in their heart by studying His word and speaking to Him regularly in prayer, they will see that God was never what the world said He was. In fact, the world misrepresents God constantly, and those who claim to know Him the best are often the biggest culprits of this! Remember the Roman Catholic Church? God truly does love His creation and His deepest desire is for all men to be saved and freed from sin. Why does He wish for humanity to be completely free from sin? Because sin is the action that is in direct opposition to God’s will, and anytime someone rebels against the will of God they will surely invite evil, suffering, and death into their life, and God does not wish to see His creation and His children needlessly suffer.


Not only will Genesis 1:1 transform the believer’s earthly life, but it has the power to transform their experience in the afterlife as well. If Genesis 1:1 is the first step toward believing the rest of the Bible, then believing Genesis 1:1 will absolutely affect your afterlife experience based on the words that encompass the rest of the Bible. Reading, understanding, and believing the words of the Bible will ultimately lead any person to a salvation from an otherwise very painful afterlife experience.

In so many ways Genesis 1:1 marks the beginning of one’s journey towards truth. Believing these simple words is the gateway to experiencing salvation in Jesus Christ. One cannot believe that Jesus is the Son of God who died for our sins unless they first believe that God exists, so believing Genesis 1:1 is surely essential for salvation and is the best starting point for a non-believer. The scriptures below encompass an excellent foundational starting point for anyone who is ready to approach God and receive the salvation He has offered us through His Son Jesus Christ.

  • Genesis 1:1 “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (God exists and He created all things, including you and me.)
  • Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (No one is able to measure up to God’s standard.)
  • Romans 5:8 “But God demonstrated His own love for us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Even though we cannot meet God’s standard He still loves us and sent His Son to die for our sins.)
  • Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death, but the gracious gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Going against the will of God (by sinning) will bring suffering and death into every person’s life, but Christ Jesus paid the price for our sin so that we may be healed and inherit eternal life.)
  • Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ.” (We no longer have to live in the condemnation of sin because of Christ.)
  • Romans 10:9-10 “If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.” (Believing with all your heart that the Lord Jesus was raised from the dead and confessing your faith in Him are the first two steps for salvation.)
  • Romans 10:13 “For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (The promise of salvation is available to all people.)

If you are reading this essay and are not a believer in God or Jesus Christ then you’ve come to a moment where a decision has been presented to you. The magnificence of Genesis 1:1, mathematically, statistically, historically, sociologically, and personally cannot be denied. Is it really an accident that the first sentence of the Holy Bible can be constructed in such a numerically brilliant fashion AND be the first sentence of the book that has so dramatically shaped the world we live in today? I’m telling you that nothing is an accident, and to brush off this information as coincidental or irrelevant would be enormous mistake on your part. Do not make that mistake. Believing Genesis 1:1 and then believing in God’s Son Jesus Christ as your Savior are critical for your current life on earth and your afterlife!

It is time to start your journey in Christ. We live in a chaotic world where anything can change at any moment, and having the Lord Jesus Christ as Ruler over your life and spirit will change everything for the better in your life, which is another marvelous promise from God: “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28). Make the decision to receive the salvation of Jesus Christ today. The first steps are easy. Simply confess your faith in Jesus Christ out of your mouth (audibly), and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead so that He could pay the price for your sins. This is how you take your first steps towards salvation. God made the first steps easy on purpose, and the most important encouragement I can give to you is to take those first steps in your walk with God right away if you haven’t yet already.


Conclusion

In conclusion, the treasure contained within Genesis 1:1 truly is a fascinating discovery. Almost unbelievably, treasure just like this is hidden all over the Bible, which certainly causes the Bible to stand apart from every other book ever written. Some have delved into a similar incredible study of ancient Hebrew pictograms, which adds another entire layer of meaning to these Spirit-filled letters, words, and verses. I would encourage anyone looking for more information about Hebrew pictograms and more on biblical numerics to check out this website: https://www.thelivingword.org.au/about.php.

There are many treasures hidden within the Bible and just as many can be found in studying creation. Some examples for treasure hunting enthusiasts can be found by researching the manuscript evidence of the accuracy of the Bible, or the archeological evidence for events described in the Bible, or the dozens of scientific fields that study creationism, or the manifestation of historical prophecy. There are fingerprints of God literally everywhere in creation. The discoveries that can be made about God start to feel endless after awhile and it becomes fun to find new ones to share with people. Have you ever explored the brilliance of the number Phi (aka The Golden Ratio)? Or have you ever examined the movement of the cluster of stars called the Pleiades? Small studies like this that reveal God’s fingerprints in creation are fascinating and certainly worthy of exploration. However, my personal favorite treasures are the testimonies of people who follow Jesus. The stories of how people have encountered and experienced God in their lives are everywhere, and you’ll find that most Christians are eager to share their most treasured stories with those who are willing to listen. God is still moving among us everyday and making Himself known. Do you want to see Him move in your life too? In my experience, God gladly draws nearer to people if they ask Him to from a sincere heart and then faithfully seek Him.

I am grateful for men like Dr. Ivan Panin and Dr. Chuck Missler who were able to discover and present the amazing mathematical and statistical treasures buried within sentences such as Genesis 1:1 to the world. Those who have had their faith encouraged by biblical numerics owe a debt of gratitude to these men. It can be no accident that Genesis 1:1, the very first sentence of the most influential and impactful book in history, is so intricately and marvelously designed. Undoubtedly, Genesis 1:1 is the greatest sentence ever written. The fact that Genesis 1:1 exists can really only mean one thing: that the Bible is set apart from every other book ever written because it was written by God. At the very least this unavoidable fact should cause everyone who learns about it to begin taking the Bible extremely seriously and give it a lot of honest study immediately. Inevitably, those who study the word with an open mind and humble heart will find faith in Jesus Christ, because searching for the truth leads men to the truth, and Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14:6)

Truly, the treasure of Jesus Christ can only be discovered and valued by those of a humble heart. These will be those rare men and women who are willing to lay aside preconceived notions and firmly held opinions that may have been established for most of their life and come to accept the truth in whatever form it presents itself to them. It is these kind of men who God says are kings, because they are willing to search out a concealed thing that the Lord has hidden, waiting for them to discover it. “It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.” (Proverbs 25:2)


I will end this essay with one more amazing numeric “treasure” that can be discovered in Hebrew. I chose this one to conclude the essay because for a person to follow Genesis 1:1 is to find the truth. The truth is Jesus Christ. So let’s examine the word for truth in Hebrew.

The first letter in the Hebrew alphabet, the 13th letter, and the last letter spell the word amet which is the word for “truth.” The numerical value for amet is 441, which is also 3 x 7 x 7 x 3. Even more fascinating is that if you merge 1, 13, and 22 (for the 1st, 13th, and 22nd letter in the alphabet) you get the number 11,322, which also happens to be divisible by 37. Incredible.

But there is even more to this amazing word… The first letter and the last letter clearly signify the first and the last, which happens to be one of the names of Jesus as described in Revelation 22:13. How amazing… could it be a coincidence that Jesus describes Himself as the first and the last in the 13th verse of the last chapter of the Bible? First, 13th, and last letters spell amet, remember? The last chapter also happens to be chapter 22, and the last letter of the Hebrew alphabet is also the 22nd letter. Very incredible.

But there is even more to this amazing word… The 13th letter is the letter mem, which is a letter that is widely understood to represent water, and the pictogram looks like a wave of water. What does scripture say about water? We know that the earth was formed out of water and in water by the Word of God (2 Peter 3:5); we know that the remnant of humanity was saved through water in the flood (1 Peter 3:20); we know that Israel passed from slavery to freedom through the water of the Red Sea (Exodus 14:22); we know that Israel entered the Promised Land through water (Joshua 3:17); we know that Christ gave Himself for the church so that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word (Ephesians 5:25-26); and we know that the waters of baptism save us through the resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 3:21). Can there be any doubt that water is a symbol of Jesus Christ? Mem also happens to have a gematria value of 40. A few examples of where we see 40 in scripture is that it rained for 40 days and 40 nights when the earth was flooded (Genesis 7:12); David was king of Israel for 40 years (1 Kings 2:11); Jesus fasted for 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness (Matthew 4:2); and Jesus was resurrected on the earth for 40 days before He ascended to heaven (Acts 1:3).

Therefore, we have the first and the last with mem (signifying water and with a gematria of 40) occupying the middle letter that spells the word amet, which means “truth”, and amet is filled with 3’s and 7’s and 37 in its numerics.

The message of God is deep and crystal clear: Jesus Christ is amet [the truth].

Are you now beginning to understand why the Bible is described as “living and active” as stated in Hebrews?

For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)

God has revealed Himself to us by His Son Jesus Christ. “The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” Jesus Christ is our amet, and He was right there in the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth as described in Genesis 1:1, and this was further confirmed by the apostle John:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” (John 1:1)


Be blessed on your journey, and may the Lord be with you in all that you do.
