The Church by Pastor Melissa Scott

“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear,” Daniel was told to seal the things. John is told, we read, to write down what he sees. Now, we’ve covered, “the time is at hand.” John, to the seven churches which are in Asia: “Grace be unto you,” unmerited favor, “and peace,” cessation of againstness, “from Him which is, which was, and which is to come.” Now listen, there are numbers in this book like the number 7, we’ll read, “the seven Spirits, the seven churches, the seven stars, the seven…but there are also numbers in the text itself.

This is the first of these: “which is, which was, and which is yet to come.” There’s your triplet there and John will do that woven in. I don’t think he did it, I think he was scribing, if I can make up a word, and these are woven into the text and it’s so amazing when you read these you go, “Wow, this is amazing.” Woven right in. “And from the seven Spirits which are before His throne.” Now before I go too far, let’s do a little bit of history. 582 BC, Pythagoras did not write anything down, but he came up with the concept that the whole universe is based on numbers, that everything has a numerical value in the universe.

It’s true, we know that we can take elements for example like chromosomes or we can take genetic makeup. There are certain repeatables that have to happen. Music: seven notes, the eighth is the octave to go to the next higher or lower. So there are numerical things, I don’t want to get into string theory and we could talk about all of the numerical issues, I don’t want to go too far, I just want to say that before this was put down on paper we had somebody else talking about numbers. In fact I just happen to have the Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy, just happen to have it handy because you never know when you’re going to need to read one of these.

Whew! “Pythagoras: he emigrated from the island of Samos, off of Asia Minor to Italy, there he founded societies based on a strict way of life. They had a great political impact in southern Italy” and yadda, yadda, yadda. “Now his fame grew exponentially with the passage of time. Plato’s immediate successors in the Academy saw true philosophy as an unfolding of the original insight of Pythagoras.”  I don’t need to read anymore.  He single handedly set the stage.

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that before Socrates, before Aristotle, here’s a mind the came up with and here’s what’s so funny when Copernicus came up with the laws that we still use, the Sun verses the Earth, the laws that we still use, the Church labeled him heathen and Pythagorean because of his numbers and their numerical value in the universe.
