The Biblical term "selah" occurs 74 times in the Bible. It is a musical direction that probably meant for there to be an instrumental interlude between lyrics. This explanation works well for when "selah" appears 71 times in David's songs (Psalms) and 3 times in the poem/song of Habakkuh Chapter 3. The fact that selah occurs exactly 74x is a very important code!
The combination of 7 & 4 is sacred geometry and can be Biblically traced back to Genesis 7:4, "For in 7 days, it will rain for 40 days and nights". (This is the Bible's first usage of the recurring theme of #40.) Moses did the #40 7x and made sure to align the 4th Commandment: "Keep the 7th day holy". An earthquake occured at Jericho when Joshua(74) had 7 priests with 7 horns march around 7 times for 7 days.
The Hebrew Bible was written using gematria: an alphanumeric code that provides added symbolic meaning and connection between words with the same gematric code. The Greek New Testament was also written with the same alphanumeric code called isopsephy. (The Arabic Qur'an was written using hisab al-jummal - the same alphanumeric code.) Simple(6,74) English(7,74) Gematria(8,74) & GOD=7_4 puts a strong emphasis on Y'shua=74/Jesus=74 (J10+E5+S19+U21+S19), Jewish=74, Messiah=74, the King=74, donkey/burro=74, Cross=74, Gospel=74, according(74) to St.(74), pastor(74), etc.
Selah is naturally connect(74)ed to composer(74), melody(74), and songs(74). Pretty cool, huh?

You know Brad, it is common when people claim to be reincarnations of Jesus, that others often tell them they need help.
Not to ridicule you, but have others in the past suggested this to you?
You've completely ignored the important material in the original post, why is that? Did you even bother to read it before coyly insulting me? If you don't want to participate in discussing the topic, then do NOT waste everyone's time.
I am not trying to refute your claims, frankly, they are a little about everyone's heads, I think.
Nor am I insulting you. I am just asking if anyone, in the face of the evidence you provide, has suggested that you might need assistance.
Surely that wouldn't be uncommon reaction for a reincarnated Jesus to expect?
Hey Brad. As the last scion of Christ and the granddaughter of a woman who had a passionate affair with Einstein, I'm in the unique possession of having personal info on both. I can help you validate your claim, if you'd be willing to answer a few personal questions about your claimed famous incarnations?
Dude, your topic is valid, but the best treament on this has been done by Larry Jackson of Bethel International Outreach Church in Charlotte NC. His audio CD (from a talk in VA) is practical, understandable and easy to comprehend . . not a series of endless equations that lead to misinterpretation, outlandish prophetical nonsense, or outright confusion.

This is why we needed scientific method.
To debunk this type of extrapolation of the ridiculous.
Have you any idea how many of these encodings have been presented in the past?
I saw the first one 40 years ago. It was bunk then as well.
What about the fact that English isn't the original language of the Bible?
