"unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek" - The Holy Perfect Numbers


The Holy Perfect Numbers

There are only four of the so-called perfect numbers below 10,000:
6, 28, 496, and 8,128.

For example,
1 + 2 + 3 = 6, while the divisors of 6 are 1, 2, 3, and 6.

As for 496, its divisors are 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 31, 62, 124, and 248, and thus
1 + 2 + 4 + 8 + 16 + 31 + 62 + 124 + 248 = 496.

However, these perfect numbers below 10,000 may be relevant to early Christianity.
Around A.D. 6, Christ Jesus was borne and registered in Roman Emperor-governed Palestine.

Around A.D. 28, Christ Jesus started His mission.

Around 496, the Christianity-converted  Western Roman Empires collapsed.

Around 8128, the kingdom of God might come to the earth, thanks to Christ Jesus, or the human history will be completed.

If God created and has been always watching the mankind and their world, the glory of God, namely the glory of Christ Jesus, must be reflected in the human history and science.  So, it must not be futile to  try to see any glimpse of God in science, mathematics, or the system of numbers.

I believe that God is pleased as we have found this implication of perfect numbers, although it might suggest that the mankind will be exterminated in the year of 8128 for some reason beyond our current imagination.

Luk 6:28 Bless them that curse you, and pray for them which despitefully use you.
Luk 6:29 And unto him that smiteth thee on the one cheek offer also the other; and him that taketh away thy cloak forbid not to take thy coat also.
Luk 6:30 Give to every man that asketh of thee; and of him that taketh away thy goods ask them not again.

"But woe unto you that are rich!" - Complete Emptiness, Nothing, Zero but God


Complete Emptiness, Nothing, Zero but God

There is beginning in everything, according to human wisdom, although there might not be an end for anything as it can be endless or circulating.

So, what is the beginning of God?  As for Christ Jesus, it can be thought that His beginning was God or Father in Heaven.  But what is the beginning of God?  Or what was there before God?

As God is omnipresent and almighty, God is the only and one source of everything including its feature of being existent or in existence.  So before God, there is nothing existent or in existence.

It means this status of nothing is superior to God.  However, according to human wisdom, nothing can be superior to God.  So, the status of being nothing before God is part of features of God.  God means to include both the status of being existent and not being existent or being God and not being God.  God can be both being anything and not being anything.  God is the status both after appearance of God and before appearance of God Himself.  It means God is "Yes" and "No," which is however not allowed for men as Christ Jesus said.

It means that it is useless for a man to think of what existed and how it was before appearance of God, since men are not given the ability to understand the answer, if any. 

If there are no numbers or integers, the status might be expressed with zero.  But this zero should include all the numbers or integers toward the infinite, because there cannot be other sources than zero that can generate anything since there is nothing than this zero.  Or the boundary of this zero must be the infinite.

In other words, before God, there must have been God as something that was precedent to God, because God is the only one that rules everything including Himself, nothing, zero, and even what is not part of God or does not belong to God.

In the world of nothing (meaning that nothing exists) or zero, which is also God,  God decided to exist, so that everything that later became existential in the space came to owe its existence to God.  If God suddenly changed His mind and stopped being existent, everything in our world would disappear and be lost to go back to nothing and zero.  It must be God's love that He does not suddenly change His mind to stop being existent.  In this context, this universe was created by love of God.

But what is God who had, say, existed even before nothing and zero, which came to be the source of everything and all the numbers, or even before Himself? 

Are we simply prisoners of the world of God or mad like a brainwashed man, even if there might not be God around there or anywhere?

Complete emptiness, however, cannot be stable or enough to contain God, if God wants to exist.

Luk 6:24 But woe unto you that are rich! for ye have received your consolation.
Luk 6:25 Woe unto you that are full! for ye shall hunger. Woe unto you that laugh now! for ye shall mourn and weep.
Luk 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.
