Preface

When we read and study the scriptures we notice certain associations between bible subjects and various numbers, animals, colors, metals, and physical phenomenon such as fire, wind, smoke, clouds, sun, moon, stars, etc.  First, it is our purpose in writing on these associations to give praise, honor, and glory to God.  Second, it is our desire to share any limited knowledge we have on these things with the inquiring seeking children of God.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have divided this work into five parts.  Part 1 is the association between the use of numbers in the scriptures and their corresponding biblical subjects.  Part 2 is the association with the use of colors and their corresponding subjects.  Part 3 is the association between bible metals and their corresponding associated subjects.  Part 4 is the association between physical phenomena and bible subjects.  Part 5 looks at some of the animals in scripture and how they are used.  It is our desire to do more than just show what the association is, but also to delve into the significance of the subject matter itself.
