Why 153 fish, and other  interesting numbers

Why 153 Fish?

Ever wonder why those 7 disciples hauled in exactly 153 fish? Me too. Lets look. It might look quite involved mathematically; But if you will stick with this I think you will be amazed.

"From the intrinsic evidence of his creation, the Great Architect of the Universe now begins to appear as a pure Mathematician. Sir James Jeans (1877-1946)

First, I will say that ALL numbers except number three itself, that are evenly divisible by 3 "fall" into the number 153 (like fish into a net). We will later see why the number 3 itself is excepted. Here is the basic Scriptural reference:

John 21:6-14
And he said unto them, Cast the net on the right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They
cast therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for the multitude of fishes.
Therefore that disciple whom Jesus loved saith unto Peter, It is the Lord. Now when Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he girt his fisher's coat unto him, (for he was naked,) and did cast himself into the sea.
And the other disciples came in a little ship; (for they were not far from land, but as it were two hundred cubits,) dragging the net with fishes.
As soon then as they were come to land, they saw a fire of coals there, and fish laid
thereon, and bread. Jesus saith unto them, Bring of the fish which ye have now caught.
Simon Peter went up, and drew the net to land full of great fishes, an hundred and fifty and three: and for all there were so many, yet was not the net broken.
Jesus saith unto them, Come and dine. And none of the disciples durst ask him, Who art
thou? knowing that it was the Lord. Jesus then cometh, and taketh bread, and giveth them, and fish likewise.
This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead. (KJV)

Now for the FUN part! The Math. Keep in mind as you read all of this, the
importance of one-third. Think back to the hair division by Ezekiel. Think forward to the 1/3 of of the stars in Rev 12.

The number 153 is the MASTER triangular number. What is a triangular number? Choose any whole number you wish, other than 1. The number can have as many digits as you wish. Then cube each digit separately and add the cubes together. Keep doing this to the resultant number, and you will find most of them eventually converging into one of three numbers. The numbers are 153, 370 and 371. On a cube-sum result of number 4 (earth), and numbers divisible by 4, ONLY, you will find a “loop back” into its previous series of numbers in that string. Like being caught in a rut. You will find, however in this loop back will be the number 55, or 11 times 5, or grace. (ie, judgment and Grace). The number 370 is about 1/3 of numbers, also. It is thus a kind of dead end, or one of Satan’s other numbers. 371 is the Christ number. It is 1 ( the number of Unity) greater. The numbers 370, 371 are similar to 153, in the sense that they regenerate themselves always, with no retrace, nor reference to any other number.

It is therefore seen that approximately 1/3 of all numbers result in 153, 1/3 result in 371, and 1/3 result in 370, or just a little short, a dead end.. Thus I use the term “triangular” number to describe these.

Remember, to calculate, add the cubes of the individual digits. Thus,

To triangulate the number, 92,

Calculate (9) cubed = 729 and add (2) cubed = 8 to get 737. Then,

Calculate (7) cubed + (3) cubed + (7) cubed to get 713 , then

Calculate (7) cubed + (1) cubed + (7) cubed to get 371.

Continue forever, and you will see that the number 371 thus triangulated will always yield 371. That is, (3)cubed + (7) cubed + (1) cubed = 371

Triangulate the number 1, and you will see it never changes. It’s always 1

Triangulate the number 2, and it will converge to 371, the Son or second of the trinity.

Triangulate the number 3, and we have: (3) cubed = 27. (2) cubed = 8, + (7) cubed = 343, yielding 351 NOTE the mirror image of the Master, 153: Continuing we have

(3) cubed + (5) cubed + (1) cubed = 153!!! And it was after the THIRD iteration!!

It is thus in the third age that Satan will be no more.

Mathematically you figure the number down to the "final outcome" of the number.

Here is the trinity function (to the 3rd power) performed on the number 153.
13 + 53 + 33 =
(1 x 1 x 1) + (5 x 5 x 5) + (3 x 3 x 3) =
1 + 125 + 27 = 153 The final outcome of number 153 is Itself.
This is also true for 371 and 370.

Now, let's use the trinity function to see what happens to the number 666.
63 + 63 + 63 =
(6 x 6 x 6) + (6 x 6 x 6) + (6 x 6 x 6) =
216 + 216 + 216 =

648 =
63 + 43 + 83 =
(6 x 6 x 6) + (4 x 4 x 4) + (8 x 8 x 8) = don't give up....

216 + 64 + 512 = we're almost there.


792 =
73 + 93 + 23 =
(7 x 7 x 7) + (9 x 9 x 9) + (2 x 2 x 2) =
343 + 729 + 8 =

1080 =
13 + 03 + 83 + 03 =
(1 x 1 x 1) + (0 x 0 x 0) + (8 x 8 x 8) + (0 x 0 x 0) =
1 + 0 + 512 + 0 =

513 =
53 + 13 + 33 =
(5 x 5 x 5) + (1 x 1 x 1) + ( 3 x 3 x 3) =
125 + 1 + 27 = 153!!!! The final outcome of 666 (Satan) is 153...He is caught in the net, and thrown away!!

Satan (666) is only a cheap imitation of the True Lord. As you can see even from numbers.

The number 153 is the "final outcome" of ALL numbers divisible by 3!

God used that number, 153, specifically.
The numbers that have a "final outcome" of 153 is not actually one-third of all
numbers.... But IS all of the "triangular" numbers.

If you were having trouble following all of this, maybe if you print it out it would be easier to read. Your printer will need to be able to print "superscript" to get the dreaded Math. Matt 13:47-48
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

Now triangulate these first ten numbers--

Start with

Father 1 =1    A Constant, never changing, self.

Son     2 > 8 >512 > 134 > 92 > 737 > 713 > 371 Thus 2 is caught by 371 ( after the 7th iteration)

Trinity 3 > 27 > 351(SATAN’s Number) > 153 Thus 3, the trinity function passes thru Satan to Finality).

Earth 4 > 64 > 280 > 520 > 133 > 55 > 250 > 133 > 55 (therefore an endless loop- earth thus would never learn, even though grace is present 11 fold) Interesting that this Grace, 5, is found present eleven (judgment) times

Grace 5 > 125> 134 > 92 > 737 > 713 > 371 (The Son, Grace always leads to Him, and after Him, never changing)

Man 6 > 216 > 225 > 141 > 66 > 432 > 99 > 1458 > 702 > 351 >153 (man sees the Trinity only after going through Satan, the mirror image of Christ)  This takes 10 (Law)iterations.

Perfect 7 > 343 > 118 > 514 > 190 > 730 > 370: (370 is an endless loop. Man (6) gets in the loop after 6 iterations, but can reach perfection by adding 1 (Father) to get the Son (371) , becoming (8) (new).  Man (6) can also take 1 (self) out, becoming 5, and enter by His Grace.

New 8 > 512 > 134 > 92 > 737 > 713 > 371 (on the 6th (man) iteration, we arrive at 371, never changing)

Judgment 9 > 729 > 1080 > 513 > 153 ( Thus, after 4 (earth) iterations we avoid the judgment of the earth by The judge, only through the Grace( 5) of Christ. We can do this by adding Father, 1 to 6, man, thereby being made perfect, 7. Or essentially we take self 1 out of man 6, and enter via His Grace, 5.Satans triangular result number 351, can be seen to be temporary, and seen to be the mirror image of the ‘trinity function“, 153. No news here. 351 is seen to be swallowed up in the end.

Notice also that satan’s mirror image number 351 is 20 short of Christ’s number, 371. 20 is the number of Redemption In both Vallowe and Bullinger

 

Law, Testimony 10 > 1 and never changes. Thus the Law is also Eternal, and constant.  It never changes either.

Interesting stuff., and far to many truths to be a coincidence.
