bullet  Introduction

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.)  Go to the end of this document to see info about new discoveries regarding home remedies.

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.


bullet  Page 157 in Zodhiates

Page 157, that=s right, page 157, in Zodhiates' Complete 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.

374 anapeitho 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].

376 anaperos Maimed. Syn. (2948), crippled, halt; (772), infirm, weak, sick. Ant. (5199), whole, healthy, sound.

377 anapipto To fall down in order to eat, to lie down in order to eat; to fall down.

378 anapleroo To fill up; e.g. to fulfill a prophecy; to be full, satisfied. Ant. to make void. [Intestines.]


bullet  Page 157 in Webster’s III61

Page 157 in my Webster’s 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 can’t help but wonder if there might also be clues for an antidote to the disease caused by this bacterium.


bullet  Page 157 in Gesenius

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. I’m 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.

All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.
