TABLE OF CONTENTS
E. Coli is a common friendly bacterial inhabitant of the intestinal tract, aiding in
the digestion of food. In scientific research, E. Coli is a standard vector for rapid mass
production of biological building blocks, from DNA to protein. Rare would be a biological
researcher who has not used E. Coli before. The strain found in healthy intestines and
used in the laboratory is different from the dangerous strain being reported in the news.
E. Coli 0157:H7 can be lethal. Its extra genes enable it to stick to the walls of the
intestine and produce the virulent Shiga toxin, which injures cells in the intestinal
walls as well as blood vessels in the intestine, leading to bleeding. In the bloodstream,
these toxins damage other blood vessels, particularly in the kidneys, leading to renal
failure. ("What Makes this E. Coli so Bad," Time, 8/3/98, p. 61.)

It turns out that there are some interesting coincidences in meaning surrounding the
number 0157. The correlations are too strong to be ascribed to mere unguided chance.
Rather, they evince divine design and foreknowledge.

Page 157, that=s right, page 157, in
Word Study Dictionary: New Testament has the following entries (note especially
word 376). See if these don=t have anything to
do with E. Coli 0157 and the idea of this being prophesied by the Lord through this code:
|373 anapauo To give rest, quiet, refresh. Ant.
(2873), to trouble, vex; (2669), to wear down; (5003), to be wretched, miserable; (3811), to chasten.
To persuade earnestly. Ant. (665), to dissuade; (3340), to repent; (3338), to
change course. [The ultimate purpose of trials is to bring us closer to the Lord.]
375 anapempo To send again or send back again. Syn. (649), to send
forth; (1821), to dispatch; (1544) to cast out [e.g. vomit].

Page 157 in my Websters III New
International Dictionary (1961), has some interesting coincidental relevance as well.
On the page are 18 words with the root "bacillus"
which is a type of bacteria. Prior to those words are the words,
"baccalaureate," "bachelor of science," which has personal relevance
to me inasmuch as my B.S. was in Microbiology. The first two words on the page are
"babylonian" and "babylonian-assyrian," which render images of
man-made disasters, including genetically engineered plagues. Also on this page are
several meanings for the word "back," including the idea of something which has
been before now returning.
Besides providing anecdotes related to the subject, we cant help but wonder if
there might also be clues for an antidote to the disease caused by this bacterium.

Page 157 in Gesenius
Hebrew Old Testament Lexicon may fall into the category of providing a possible clue
for an antidote. On that page is the word gad, which means "coriander
seed." Not having done any study on this possibility, my presenting this here now is
speculative. Feedback and follow-up documentation is welcome. Im not in the business
of being right as much as I seek to be a catalyst for pioneering uncharted productive
territory, arriving at hitherto unknown truths and solutions.
