Who could have imagined God's presence upon our first President, George Washington, as he laid hands on the Bible after the manner of King Solomon's dedication in 2Chr7:14. "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land". The USA won't be having a 45th President if the Bible agenda has been laid out the way I see it. It's why I didn't believe Romney would be elected (or inaugurated), and will continue to wonder about ramifications of not having a 45th President of the U.S. Will Obama get a 3rd term, you think? "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.." Ps33:12

Putting two and two together is what we all like to do,
To some the answer's four, and to others twenty-two.
The acrostic number 22 is somewhat like a veil,
When letters of the alphabet are used to tell the tale.
Hidden things in Scripture compare to finding Gold!
Searching out the ton of ways that Heaven's Truth is told...
ACROSTIC 'POETRY' IN THE BIBLE
BIBLE: Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth! Some people believe it is irreverent or even sacrilege to dwell on numbers in the Holy Bible, but others see hidden or Divine Purpose in the abundance of numbers with similar significance . Before the time of Arabic numbers, the letters of alphabets were assigned numerical value: A for 1, B for 2, etc. and scholars call this procedure 'Gematria' when applied to the Biblical text. Then, when the beginning letters of verses follow an orderly path, it's called 'Acrostic'. Numbers follow a consistent pattern throughout Scripture, and this argues for the authorship of just one (1) Holy Ghostwriter, instead of a hodgepodge of myths or fairy tales.
In the common form of acrostic found in Old Testament Poetry, each line or stanza begins with a new succeeding letter of the Hebrew alphabet in order. This literary technique may serve as an aid to memory; to guard against an omission, and perhaps a way of saying that a subject was all-inclusive (like from 'A to Z'), or even a way of camouflaging the distinction of the number 22.
The Number 22: The Old Testament, in the Hebrew language, uses their 22 letter alphabet beginning with the 'aleph' and ending with the 'tav' (400 count). The ancient 'tav' was shaped like a cross, and is commonly thought to be the 'mark' put on foreheads in Ezekiel 9:4. The acrostics based on their alphabet will naturally differ from the 24 letter Greek "Alpha and Omega", or the 26 letter English alphabet, but the technique of alphabet letter-succession is known to be applied to literary works of many nations. There's an intriguing correspondence between Gen22 where Abraham went to sacrifice Isaac on Mt. Moriah, and Ps22 which describes the crucifixion of Jesus. Also, you may want to consider how Gen44 identifies Benjamin as the thief of Joseph's Personel Cup.
The Alphabet Psalm. Psalm 119 is the longest psalm in the Bible (Ps117 the shortest), and is known as the Alphabet Psalm since each letter is used to begin eight verses, followed by the next letter for eight verses, and so on. Many Bibles (not all) will include the Hebrew letter which begins each 8th verse. Several words are emphasized throughout the psalm: Testimonies, Commandments, Precepts, Statutes, Judgments, Law, Decree; are repeated almost in thesaurus style.The Alphabet Psalm 119 is well known as the longest psalm in the Bible; its 176 verses quickly calculated as 8x22 or 4x44, with no apparent connection to our modern emergency phone number 911, or the catastrophe of the Twin Towers in New York on 9/11/01 while George Bush was President. Acrostics occur in Psalms 111 and 112, where each letter begins a line; in Psalms 25, 34, and 145, where each letter begins a half-verse; and in Psalm 37 and Proverbs 31:10-31. There may be others, perhaps in another style or type of acrostic.
An acrostic name of Jesus: J-E-S-U-S, "Just Exactly Suits Us Sinners."
Four of the five chapters in the Book of Lamentations are acrostic, and chapter three is a triple-acrostic of 66 verses. The Book puts me in mind of the scene at Calvary with 2 malefactors and 2 thieves, so that chapt. 5 (non-acrostic) would be the malefactor who spoke on behalf of Jesus. Lk23:42. The Triple-Acrostic (3x22) of Lamentations (sometimes called 'the lamentations of Jeremiah') certainly compares to the 66 books of the Bible, and the octostrophic (8x22) of Psalm 119 an added instance of multiplying and enhancing the number 22. Proverbs Chapter 31 contains 31 verses as well, and includes a tremendous acrostic poem of 22 lines (verses 10-31) extolling the virtues of Godly women, wives and mothers, who bless their households. The first nine verses are not acrostic, but thought to be the advice given to young Solomon by his mother Bathsheba. The renowned 23rd Psalm, coupled with "the Alpha & Omega" (Aleph & Tav) or 'first and last', may be thought of as the One plus Twenty-two. Amen?Tetragrammaton is the 4-letter 'Name of God' often thought to mean JeHoVaH (with the 3 vowels missing), and more recently thought to be pronounced 'Yaweh' based on the Jewish custom of not literally pronouncing that sacred name. (They even leave out the 'o' when writing the word God!) Scholars have noted how the Book of Esther, 5:4, includes these 4 Hebrew letters in an acrostic arrangement, as does Ps96:11.

Focusing on the 50 chapters of Genesis (Jubile-change) and 22 chapters of Revelation may help to recognize them as "Bookends of the Bible", even though most scholars would hurry to explain that chapters and verses of the Scripture weren't added until at least the 16th century. Even so, the acrostic numbering would support the way we see them numbered today.
The 44th Book of the Bible is "The ACTS of the Apostles" which some have noted lacks a specific ending, and may symbolically be continuing updates on the works of the Holy Spirit, even unto this 21st Century!
The Jewish "month" began with a new moon, so on the 14th and 15th it would be full. Their calendar in the sky, so to speak, lasted for just 29.5 days, and resulted in a year of 354 days--eleven days short of a solar calendar year. They would begin that second year just eleven days ahead, but after two years it would be 22 days off, and after three years it would be 33 days off. They corrected this by having a second Month-Adar at the end of every third year; knowing that this correction was not perfect and that the tiny error would eventually have to be dealt with, if they didn't want to have snow in July or a heat wave in February.
This is pertinent because Jesus died on Passover and 3 days later was Resurrected on Firstfruits. Lev23:10 Now we're just a year away from the 66th since Israel became a Country again, right? So for those who've paid attention to Biblical Numerology, and even to BibleWheel.com, do you think 2014 will be an auspicious year for Planet Earth? Just for grins, of course.. The color categories of the books above are my own preference, and helpful for remembering the perfect order of the 66 books. Please let me know if you have illumination or revelation on this subject..The House of Judah includes the 'Dynasty of David', and appears to have twenty-two monarchs. 1. David
9. Queen Athaliah
Compare the 22 Kings in Davidic Line, to the 44 U.S. Presidents !!
This psalm applies uniquely to the USA, IMO, even though most Bible scholars don't identify this country in scripture. Isaiah 18 about 'a land divided by rivers' maybe an exception. When I was in the Navy it was the practice at 10PM for the lights to be dimmed in the sleeping quarters; then 'taps' would be played and a prayer from the Bible by the chaplain. Do other nations do this?
"As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country". Prov25:25
Is America the 'far country' where the Gospel has been proclaimed? Not to glorify the USA, but rather taking the POV of how it is the 'melting pot' Godly Nation that consists of immigrants from all the nations of the world who elected to join this Republic whose motto is "In God We Trust". Times change though, and recently we've had reason to suspect the motives of certain immigrants.
Double numbers as multiple of eleven are found throughout scripture; not just the 33 generations to David, or the 66 books from Genesis to Revelation, and the 'doubled' itself leads to anticipation that the 22 Davidic Kings have led prophetically to the 44 Presidents of our present age.We see the 'Triple-Acrostic' (3x22) in the middle chapter of Lamentations, as well as the 66 books of the Bible, so this focus on the 'Double-Acrostic' appears reasonable and may help explain the remarkable growth and blessing of these United States. Read "The Harbinger" by Jonathan Cahn, ca 2011, for how the USA is a type of the Promised Land linking George Washington's first inauguration (30 April 1789) to Solomon's inauguration of the Temple (2Chr5-7:14). Pat Robertson and Sid Roth each termed the book 'stunning', and even if you don't agree with their theology or POV, it's worth a look. Also "The Light and the Glory" by Peter Marshall, for an understanding of how Columbus believed he was on a mission on behalf of the Holy Spirit.
THE DOUBLE PORTION. Because Elisha did twice the miracles of Elijah, 2K2:9, may be an innuendo leading to the comparison of the 22 Kings of David's line with the 44 Presidents of the USA! Now that Obama has been elected to a 2nd term, we may have four more years to test whether this theory stands or falls. Counting the kings is not as easy as it sounds -- do we count the first three who reigned over all 12 Tribes; and what about Saul who wasn't of the Tribe of Judah? Daniel 6:2 KJV "And over these three presidents; of whom Daniel was first: that the princes might give accounts unto them, and the king should have no damage". (Versions other than the KJV probably won't use the word 'Presidents').Nobody claims all our presidents have been practicing Christians, but there's a difference when someone harbors a King Complex or secret agenda. Right? We don't know whether King Hezekiah suspected that his illness would lead to his death, when Isaiah arrived to tell him, and then later to confirm the added fifteen years by the shadow of the changing time.. However, when 15 years are added to the Y2K period, it may signify a reason why the 2016 election won't develop! You think? The Gibeonites were a deceiving group claiming to be from "A Far Country", who brought old bread and old wine (sacraments of Communion), and asking for Covenant. After three days they were found to be liars, Josh9:16 -- like the situation these days when liars pretend to be in Covenant with the Almighty (for fear of Hell), but have no intention of honoring God's Word.
"But they like men [Adam] have transgressed the covenant:
there have they dealt treacherously (H898: bagad) against me". Hosea 6:7
CAUTION! Read Carefully now..
St. Paul Chapel is adjacent to Federal Bldg. AND "ground zero" in NYC. George Washington, along with members of the United States Congress, worshipped at St. Paul's Chapel on his Inauguration Day, on April 30, 1789. Washington also attended services at St. Paul's during the two years when New York City was the country's capital.
This nation chose to have a President rather than a King to lead us on our Christian travel down the New Covenant trail after George Washington laid his hand on the Bible in that Chapel of St. Paul near Ground Zero.
At King Solomon's inauguration: "If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land". 2Chr7:14America is a land filled with churches, and having "In God We Trust" as our nation's motto and on our currency.
"Blessed is the Nation whose God is the Lord" Psalm33:12.
Just prior to Noah's Ark being taken away, the final four generations were Enoch to Methuselah to Lamech to Noah, so perhaps the Bush41 to Clinton to Bush43 to Obama is more than coincidence, but rather something the LORD has known all along. You think?
Moses saw the ONE bush, but these are the days of seeing TWO!

|Isn't this a most amazing 'coincidence'? I don't claim it as revelation, though it woke me from sound sleep. Maybe something I ate, but it seems to 'fit' in a nebulous way, so will just have to wait and see how it develops. "Those that WAIT upon the Lord.." At this time I've only shared this with a few friends and like we used to say "running it up the flagpole to see if it will fly", or "dropping it into the tub to see if it floats".. hah.|
