The first part of this mini-series on the prophetic word about 2018 being when the Lord imparts to His prophets the ability to see and understand ‘My Numbers’, also refers to these earlier blogs on just that topic:
- Astonishing Mathematics, a conjunction between Creation, Gospel & Science?
- Number 153, Signs and Symbols
- A Post-Resurrection Miracle As A ‘Mystery’ Now Revealed – part 2
- Amazing Geometrical Symmetry of Genesis 1:1 and John 1:1 (cont’d)
Those blogs are based upon a fascinating book by Jonathan R Hill entitled, Unlocking The Sign Miracles of John which, he informs me, has since “matured through a series of revisions (each of which) is marked at the back of the book”, adding…
“It has been an extraordinary journey in writing this material and I consider that the Lord has been holding back significant distribution until the book is ready. I believe we are now at that point. I have also changed the graphic on the front cover of R15 by removing the box.”
During that discussion a couple of months ago, Jonathan gave permission to reprint the preface to his book for my readers information. It reads:
The Bible speaks of several upcoming global events which occur at the end of the Christian Age including the ‘catching-up’ or rapture of the believing church, a period of terrible tribulation for the nation of Israel followed by the second coming of Messiah. This book presents a unique chronological framework for these events, unveiled within the eight sign miracles of John’s Gospel. Each sign miracle targets a facet of God’s concluding work in the consummation of this age, for either the Body of Christ or the nation of Israel. Underpinning this framework is an elegant, figurative and radix  independent mathematical transformation or pattern, derived from the numerical values of key words and phrases in the autographic Hebrew and Greek text of scripture.
As a professional computer programmer, I’ve been involved in patterns, methodologies and code throughout my entire career of 33 years to date. Observing and capturing patterns, whether business, scientific or financial, and then logically implementing them into modern software, is what I do.
For many years I have been observing another pattern of typological and numeric design within scripture. The content of this pattern is spiritually intense because God has self-authenticated His authorship of the Bible in a unique and deterministic way. Moreover, this biblical pattern, which comes into focus through the sign miracles recorded by John, holds a vital message for the Body of Christ and the nation of Israel. Christians and believing Israel must prepare for meeting the Bridegroom and Messiah respectively.
I have worked hard at making the types and the maths as intelligible and as simple as possible. The book is a progression of revelation building chapter upon chapter. As part of the authorship process, custom software has been written, to capture and validate the Greek and Hebrew numerical values from the autographic text. The Appendix lists every Greek and Hebrew numerical value quoted and breaks down the calculation into its constituent parts, giving the reader full transparency of the process.
Footnotes (at the base of each page) are used extensively for reference material and scriptures. Numbers over the value of ten are written as digits rather than words. Lastly, emphasis added to scriptures by highlighting, is not part of the original script but is intended to draw attention to a certain part of the verse.

 Radix or ‘base’ is the number of unique digits, including zero, used to represent a number counting system. Base 10 (decimal) is the most common radix and uses ten digits from 0 through to 9. Another well-known radix is base 2 (binary) which uses two digits, 0 and 1.
