Did you know that the speed of light can be found in the Bible?

In Numbers 2:3 the Tribe of Judah was positioned in the desert at the east, at the point of the rising sun:

"And on the east side toward the rising of the sun shall they of the standard of the camp of Judah pitch throughout their armies: and Nahshon the son of Amminadab shall be captain of the children of Judah."

2 kings 8:19 says, "Yet the Lord would not destroy Judah for David his servant's sake, as he promised him to give him alway a [b]light[/b], and to his children."

Numbers 2:9 tells us how many people were in the tribe of Judah, the tribe of light:

"All that were numbered in the camp of Judah were an [b]hundred thousand and fourscore thousand and six thousand and four hundred[/b], throughout their armies. These shall first set forth."

Or 186,400.

186,400 The Constant Speed Of Light!

The physicist Albert A. Michelson in the early 1900’s, using a device known as an Interferometer, stated the speed of light to be 186,400 mps.

Of course the Bible had it right 4,000 years before science discovered it, because the Bible is God's pure, perfect, holy, infallible, inspired, preserved words.
If we can believe that God created this universe out of nothing, we should also believe that everything, and literally everything in this universe came into existence by the mere words of God. That would include the laws of science which governs this very universe; the speed of light, law of gravity, law of refraction, planetary motions, rotations and revolutions, birth and death of stars, etc...

God said,"Let there be light" and instantly, there was light! God created the light with a single sentence from His mouth. That's super speedy. haha Creating the light, means creating the very nature of it, it's speed, it's power, the substance through which it can pass, the energy that it carries, its behavior and so on. For instance, when a car is designed, it's speed, it's size, etc. are decided. In the same manner, God designed the speed of light, the speed of sound, the mass of every particles.
@LadyGrace Amen.

This has a lot to say about how God speaks (vibration) form into existence. In this experiment, the person used a tone generator, a wave driver and a metal chladni plate with sand, attached to the speaker. Certain frequencies vibrate the metal plate in such a way that it creates geometric patterns. As the frequency increases in pitch the patterns become more complex. Remember in Genesis, the earth was without FORM and void. God spoke and said let there be light and there was light. Another translation of words is vibrations. The ancient book of the Hebrews 11:3 states an interesting thing: "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." For as men speak words of sound that go a matter of feet and last only a couple of seconds. God himself speaks substance.

WOW!!! That is so fascinating! I love this post!

@Emosaur You are fake news of SW.
Yeah, that’s really incredible to find patterns where they don’t exist.
Wow that’s interesting I’ll bring it up in my Bible study

Numbers also tells when and how to abort an unborn child

Numbers 5:11-31
@NorthernBear NOT in the King James Bible - the only true Bible! But if you use a modern corrupted version - a Vatican version like the NIV, then the answer would be yes!
