The Number 20

On page 106 of my book (really God’s book) I make known the fact that Abraham was the 20th patriarch (from Adam) on the genealogical descent to the Messiah, Christ Jesus, and that he was the first father God worked through (controlling situations and circum- stances in his life) to begin secretly prophesying about Christ’s redemptive work.  Consequently, we learned the number “20” had special meaning to God.  On page 106, I write:

“20” was/is God’s number for ‘redemption’ … To confirm this (once the nation of Israel was established) God commanded all the males, age 20 and up, to pay a yearly “20 gerahs” ransom-offering for their souls: Then shall they give every man a RANSOM for his soul unto the LORD … This they shall give … half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORDfrom twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD … to make an ATONEMENT for your souls” (Exodus 30:12-16).

If you haven’t figured it out yet, my friend, God uses numbers to speak to mankind!  He’s done this over and over and over again in the Bible.  Here we see God attached the meaning of “salvation, redemption, deliverance, and ransom (the things Jesus was coming to do and pay for mankind’s souls during his first Earthly coming!)” to the number 20.

Well, as I prepared last week’s blog, God showed me something wonderful about the book I wrote.  I was looking up where I had written about the events of the day of Jesus’ death and found it was contained on pages 195 to 202.  (If you haven’t read this yet, I strongly advise you too, for it is a thesis on the WHY of the physical things God wanted Jesus’ body to go through on that glorious Passover day!)  Then I noticed on page 200 (EXACTLY) is where I came to the part about Jesus’ walk up Golgotha’s hill and DEATH on the cross!  Page 200, friend!!!  EXACLTY!!! The number 20!!!  Salvation!!!   Oh, but not only that … page 200 is also where I finished the revelation behind God’s number 20 by explaining God’s reason for creating mankind’s physical body with 10 fingers & 10 toes and wanting those “20 digits” nailed to a tree (let the reader understand)!

Friend, here’s the bottom line ... the book I wrote came from God!  See, I know what you don't.  I know how every word I wrote was typed with my palms resting on my father's Bible. I know the tears I wept many times as the spirit of God moved me as I typed.  I know the times I trembled.  I know the 20 months (exactly) I worked!  I know that book contains the heart of God!  It’s in little things like this "page 200 thing" – that He’s only bringing to my attention now! – where He is saying to the world: “My stamp of approval is ALL over this book!”  Friend, I had no control over the interior layout of the book.  That was done by my publisher Mill City Press.  They set the size of the left, right, top and bottom page margins (which is what controls the amount of text on each page) and that’s where Christ’s death part of the book ended up.  The book is not mine, friend … it is GOD’S!  I was merely an instrument He used to give voice to the wonderful and amazing truths in His Word, so you too can now hear and learn them.  I am NOTHING, and He is EVERYTHING!!!  Praise His wonderful name forevermore!

Read "Undeniable Biblical Proof" book

In Christ’s love,


p.s. Btw, God has planned the final REDEMPTION of our souls – you know, Jesus' words about his Second Coming: "Then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh" (Luke 21:28) – to take place precisely 2,000 years AFTER His son's first redemptive work on the cross. Just thought you might like to also add that "number 20" into your Bible equation as you meditate on God's marvelous works!

Approximately 848 Weeks (Sabbaths) Remaining Till Christ's Return!


  1. Wow! How cool! You are right Gabriel, i didn't know!

  2. All I know bro is God wants us to love, and the people living in the world today only have around 16 years left to figure it out, or there's gonna be HELL to pay! I've come to the conclusion of the matter, fear God and obey His 10 love commandments for this is the WHOLE DUTY of man! If we ain't doing those things, we are an utter failure. That's just the bottom line. Peace.
