Re: Is Bible more History or Prophecy?
You said: "I could be completely wrong"
No, you are not completely wrong, the magicians, the satanists, the Caballah (a mysterious faction of Judaism) all practice numerology, a small example (the skull and bones emphasize on the number 322!).
However we have to think, what is the origin of all this numerology?
The messenger of the covenant gave us an important clue, he quoted in appendix 1 of his authroized translation of Quran Rabbi Judah the pious:
The following quotation is taken from STUDIES IN JEWISH MYSTICIM, (Association for Jewish Studies, Cambridge, Mass., Joseph Dan & Frank Talmage, eds., Page 88, 1982). The quotation refers to the work of Rabbi Judah the Pious (12th Century AD):
The people [Jews] in France made it a custom to add [in the morning prayer] the words: "`Ashrei temimei derekh [blessed are those who walk the righteous way]," and our Rabbi, the Pious, of blessed memory, wrote that they were completely and utterly wrong. It is all gross falsehood, because there are only nineteen times that the Holy Name is mentioned [in that portion of the morning prayer]... and similarly you find the word `Elohim nineteen times in the pericope of Ve-'elleh shemot.... Similarly, you find that Israel were called "sons" nineteen times, and there are many other examples. All these sets of nineteen are intricately intertwined, and they contain many secrets and esoteric meanings, which are contained in more than eight large volumes... Furthermore, in this section there are 152 (19x8) words.
So this Rabbi in the 12th century acknowledged that there are significant numbers in the scriptures. I believe that Satan uses God's creation, the good things and distort it to the exact opposite, soon a new secret faction of Judaism got busy (the Caballah or kabbala) and started the process of divination using numerology.
So how could we tell God's signs from Satan's numerology?
1- The message is the most important thing, God's sign will stand for the simple idea of (One God ALONE), while Satan's numerology will promote polytheism, it stands for evil meanings, no meaning or nonsense.
2- Satan's numerology hoaxes are based mainly on assumptions, unclear connections, use of alot of modules and number variations for the same module. While God's signs are CRYSTAL CLEAR,they don't need a high IQ to be understood, they vary from the simple to the complex to allow everybody to appreciate them, they are direct, unambiguous, divine in nature.
3- Satanic numerologist usually are stuck in the visible, they use numbers to feel they are in control, to gain power, they are obsessed with numbers to the extent that it totally preoccupies their minds. Whatever occupies your mind most of the time is your god.
Those satanists see power in numbers, that's why they use them extinsively, they also see independent power in symbols. However numbers are nothing without a righteous meaning behind them. There is no lucky number, or evil number, any number can be good or bad depending on the message behind it.
19 for example is a sign for the sincere, if it appeared on an evil event, it would mean that God is in full control and he is allowing the evil scheme (in order to serve a higher purpose or message), like the prominent 19 hostages in 911, it meant that God knows exactly what they are doing, while the whole event was a warning to the Americans that they have been following Satan, and his satanic leaders, a wake up call.
The bottom line is there are indeed satanic hoaxes, but there are also God's original signs and proofs. If you can't see the message behind the numbers, nobody can show them to you!
If you are sincere enough you will SEE.
[2:102] They pursued what the devils taught concerning Solomon's kingdom. Solomon, however, was not a disbeliever, but the devils were disbelievers. They taught the people sorcery, and that which was sent down through the two angels of Babel, Haroot and Maroot. These two did not divulge such knowledge without pointing out: "This is a test. You shall not abuse such knowledge." But the people used it in such evil schemes as the breaking up of marriages. They can never harm anyone against the will of GOD. They thus learn what hurts them, not what benefits them, and they know full well that whoever practices witchcraft will have no share in the Hereafter. Miserable indeed is what they sell their souls for, if they only knew.
[34:54] They have rejected it in the past; they have decided instead to uphold conjecture and guesswork.
