Its all about Christ
Colossians 3:1 - If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God.
There is an amazing field in Bible study called Bible Numeric that has been used to confirm scriptures and identify changes in the scriptures.
In the old days in ancient Hebrew and even in the Greek in which the Bible is written there were no special symbols for numbers they used alphabets to denote numbers. For example A = 1, B = 2, C = 3, etc...
The first nine letters were used to denote numbers. The name of the 'antichrist' is 666 and the name 'Jesus' has the number 888. There is also by another field called Image Study that shows numbers have an understanding i.e.
1 = Unity, Divinity, God
2 = The witness, Holy Spirit
3 = Godhead, Trinity
4 = Earth (creation), 4 corners, 4 winds, 4 seasons, 4 rivers of Paradise, 4 world empires etc...
5 = Man, 5 senses, 5 fingers, 5 toes, 5 openings in the head etc...
6 = Satan, antichrist
7 = Christ, 3 + 4 God as man
8 = Jesus (perfect example to man), redeemed man, saved man, born-again
In Bible Numerics when any scripture is numerically added, all have found to have the base of number 7 (multiplies of 7). The sums of words & sentences also have the base 7. If any word is changed, added or deleted from the original manuscripts (MSS) the pattern gets disrupted.
There were more than 40 writers who directly / indirectly wrote the different books of the Bible in their varying styles yet they maintained the pattern without their knowledge. It is impossible for man over the thousands of years to coordinate or mathematically achieve this. Bible Numerics shows the signature of the true Writer - the Holy Spirit. Even the writer manifests Himself in 7 (Seven Spirits of God) to underline the importance of Christ.
Even the currency notes any country would not have such fool proof security checks which the Word of God has.
When God has given so much importance to Christ, should we not also make Christ as the center of our lives, making Him King in our lives? Our lives should evolve around Christ like the Bible evolves around Him. Every thing we do, thing and speak should be for the glory of Him through God the Father.

9 And call no man your father on the earth: for one is your Father, even he who is in heaven.
10 Neither be ye called masters (called to lead): for one is your master (called to lead), even the Christ.
9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
