God has stamped His numerical signature throughout the world of nature.
The marvels of nature attest to the existence of God and declare
to mankind that "the invisible things of Him from the creation of the
world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made,
even His eternal power…"(Romans 1:20).
What is the numerical signature of God? The numerical signature of
God is the number three as used throughout the Sacred Volume of Biblical
Scripture. God is revealed in the Holy Bible as a triune being commonly
known as the Trinity, that is, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
therefore, the number 3 is God's special number.
The following partial list of facts demonstrate the numerical
signature of God and the harmony of true science and Scripture:
1. God made man in His image and likeness as a triune being:
1. body (shell) 2. soul(emotions, intellect, will) 3. spirit (life)
2. The fingerprints of God are found throughout human anatomy as seen
in the many groups of
of three within its design. For example, skin is the largest organ
of the body and consists of
three layers: 1. epidermis 2. dermis 3. hypodermis
3. The Bible states that "God is light"( 1 John 1:5). There are three
properties of light: 1. actinic 2. calorific 3. luminiforous
4. There are three phases of matter: 1. solids 2. liquids 3. gases
5. Water, the greatest quantity of the phases of matter on earth, has
6. There are three basic dimensions: 1. length 2. width 3. depth
7. There are three primary colors: 1. yellow 2. red 3. blue
8. The divisions of time are in groups of three: 1. years 2. months 3.
days 1. hours 2. minutes 3. seconds
9. There are three realms in nature: 1. mineral 2. vegetable 3. animal
10. The smallest particle of matter, the atom, has three basic
components: 1. electrons 2. protons 3. neutrons
11. The earth is composed of three concentric layers:
1. crust 2. mantle 3. core
12. The earth has a big number 3 stamped on it, as it were, since it is
the third planet from the
sun. That a big bang in the distant past placed the earth in this
perfect position from the
sun where it can sustain life is ludicrous and absurd to the
13. In deep space, in the Eagle Nebula, there are three immense pillars
six trillion miles long
consisting of interstellar hydrogen gas and dust. Etc.
The facts concerning God's numerical signature not only demonstrate
His existence but also
hammers the final coffin nail into the theory of evolution. "The fool
hath said…there is no God"
(Psalm 14:1). Almighty God, the architect of the universe, is the
controller of time, matter and space. Unfortunately, the only things He
doesn't control are the lives of men who refuse to repent and believe the
The theory of evolution with its random chance and mindless causes
is a hopeless philosophy. The propagation of the evolutionary theory was
one of the greatest tragedies of the 20th century because of its
faith-destroying tenets and its "survival of the fittest" mentality.
The orderliness and the intelligent design of the Creator is
scientifically verified by His numerical signature as seen everywhere.
Therefore, the Bible is a trustworthy science book for all students of
inquiring minds who will also find in it advanced scientific and medical
statements. For example, thousands of years ago it was recorded in Sacred
Scripture the importance of blood(Leviticus 17:11), and that the earth is
round and poised in space(Isaiah 40:22, Job 26:7). In his "Book of
Prophecies," Christopher Columbus noted that reading in the Book of
Isaiah helped him discover the New World.
God's design, majesty and power are not only seen in the earth but
also 7,000 light years away. The Bible says, "The heavens declare the
glory of God, and the firmament showeth His handiwork"(Psalm 19:1). The
way God accomplished His mighty feats is also revealed in Scripture:
"Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of
God, so that the things that are seen were not made of things which do
appear"(Hebrews 11:3) God spoke and the heavenly bodies were created,
including all the solids, liquids, gases and energy in the universe. A
further revelation of God's power is found in Psalm 147:4, "He tells the
number of stars; He calls them all by their names." There are an
estimated seventy-six sextillion stars in the universe, a number said to
be greater than all the grains of sand on earth.
In consideration of all these things, we have to agree with the
words of Psalm 48:1, "Great is the Lord, and greatly to be praised."
