It may appear that I go overboard with this but I can't help it. I get started with this stuff and can't stop. I love the parallels in Scripture. Math and mathematical principles abound in the Word of God. God is very precise in everything that He does, and we govern our lives according to that precision.
Well, did I leave you scratching your head last week? Let’s see if we can do some more head scratching this week as we look at more mathematical arrangements in the Word of God. A lot of people don’t realize just how precise God is! Think about the layout of the Universe. There is nothing random about it. When God spoke those fateful words, “Light be!” (“Let there be light, KJV”) Creation began unfolding instantly. He never told it to stop, and as a matter of fact, the Universe is still expanding as we speak. It has never stopped. In any case, let’s continue where we left off last week.
We’ve been dealing with some pretty weighty topics over the last months. Let’s take a break for the next few weeks and take a look at some unusual mathematical features that appear repetitiously in the Word. I’ve always been a math hound and numbers played a great part in my early education (hence, a substantial part of my business career being based in math).
Well, I’m hoping I can wrap up this part of the series today in our look at the life of David and what he had to overcome between the time he was anointed by Samuel and took the throne of Judah and Benjamin some 13 years later prior to taking the throne of the entire nation of Israel.
