1+1 Model for Fractions of One

The fractions of One in the Bible are based upon the 1+1 model.  In the Biblical examples, God designates a fraction of the whole which is One part of the 1+1 model. The remainder of the  whole is a part of the remaining fraction. makes up the last One in the 1+1 model.


 (numerator)     +    1 (denominator)


              1                           +                          1 

An example would be 1/3


A fraction could also be a part of a whole number as seen in the illustration below.


1 (any whole number)     +    1 (the fraction)


              1                           +                          1     

An example would be  2/1/4

God used fractions in His Word to target how much of a whole would be involve or used in an event

Below are some examples of the way that God used fractions in His Word.

1/500 of the Booty Example

God used  the 1+1 sequence and fractions to divide the booty that Israel had acquired in one of their wars.

"31:25: And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
31:26: Take the sum of the prey that was taken, both of man and of beast, thou, and Eleazar the priest, and the chief fathers of the congregation:
31:27: And divide the prey into two parts; between them that took the war upon them, who went out to battle, and between all the congregation:
31:28: And levy a tribute unto the LORD of the men of war which went out to battle: one soul of five hundred, both of the persons, and of the beeves, and of the asses, and of the sheep:
31:29: Take it of their half, and give it unto Eleazar the priest, for an heave offering of the LORD."

God commanded that the booty be split into two parts. Then He levied a tribute to Himself  from each of the two parts. He took 1/500 of the booty that went to the fighting men of Israel. His portion was given to the Levites.



1/50 of the Booty

After levying a tribute to the Levites from the solders booty.  God now turn to levy a tribute for the Levites from the people of Israel who did not go to war.

"31:30: And of the children of Israel's half, thou shalt take one portion of fifty, of the persons, of the beeves, of the asses, and of the flocks, of all manner of beasts, and give them unto the Levites, which keep the charge of the tabernacle of the LORD."


God  commanded Israel to give 1/50th of their booty as a tribute to the Levites. God used the same numbers but with different values (1/.50 - 1/500) to determine the amount of the people's tribute that were to be given to the Levites.

"31:31: And Moses and Eleazar the priest did as the LORD commanded Moses.


The following illustration shows how God used a series of 1+1 sequences to fulfill His destire.


31:32: And the booty, being the rest of the prey which the men of war had caught, was six hundred thousand and seventy thousand and five thousand sheep,
31:33: And threescore and twelve thousand beeves,
31:34: And threescore and one thousand asses,
31:35: And thirty and two thousand persons in all, of woman that had not known man by lying with him.
31:36: And the half, which was the portion of them that went out to war, was in number three hundred thousand and seven and thirty thousand and five hundred sheep:
31:37: And the LORD's tribute of the sheep was six hundred and threescore and fifteen.
31:38: And the beeves were thirty and six thousand; of which the LORD's tribute was threescore and twelve.
31:39: And the asses were thirty thousand and five hundred; of which the LORD's tribute was threescore and one.





1/10th Examples


In the book of Numbers, God commanded Israel to give a  one tenth of their increase to the Levites as tithe.

"18:20: And the LORD spake unto Aaron, Thou shalt have no inheritance in their land, neither shalt thou have any part among them: I am thy part and thine inheritance among the children of Israel.
18:21: And, behold, I have given the children of Levi all the tenth in Israel for an inheritance, for their service which they serve, even the service of the tabernacle of the congregation."





Sacrificial Offerings Fractions


Burnt Offerings and their Fractural Attributes


In the Bible, God called for Israel to make Burnt Offerings to Him. God designed the Burnt offerings using the number 3 as the 2+1 sequence. Each Burnt Offering consisted of three major parts:

Animal Sacrifice

Meat Offering (grain)

Drink Offering

The animal part of the Burnt Offering was the main part of the sacrifice. Each animal sacrifice was accompanied by its meat and drink offering.

Below are some examples of the liquid and dry measurements related to various Burnt Offerings that God commanded.

Animal Sacrifice

When God designed the animal part of the Burnt Offering, He did so using the number 3.

In the Scripture below. God chose three animals of the herd to be used in His Burnt Offerings.
In Leviticus 19:36, God told Israel:

" And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When ye be come into the land of your habitations, which I give unto you, And will make an offering by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, or a sacrifice in performing a vow, or in a freewill offering, or in your solemn feasts, to make a sweet savour unto the LORD, of the herd, or of the flock:"

Numbers 15:1-12
God specified the various offerings that were to accompany each animal sacrifice.


4 Then shall he that offereth his offering unto the LORD bring a meat offering of a tenth deal of flour mingled with the fourth part of an hin of oil.
5 And the fourth part of an hin of wine for a drink offering shalt thou prepare with the burnt offering or sacrifice, for one lamb.


6 Or for a ram, thou shalt prepare for a meat offering two tenth deals of flour mingled with the third part of an hin of oil.
7 And for a drink offering thou shalt offer the third part of an hin of wine, for a sweet savour unto the LORD.
8 And when thou preparest a bullock for a burnt offering, or for a sacrifice in performing a vow, or peace offerings unto the LORD:


9 Then shall he bring with a bullock a meat offering of three tenth deals of flour mingled with half an hin of oil.
10 And thou shalt bring for a drink offering half an hin of wine, for an offering made by fire, of a sweet savour unto the LORD.
11 Thus shall it be done for one bullock, or for one ram, or for a lamb, or a kid.
12 According to the number that ye shall prepare, so shall ye do to every one according to their number."

These were instructions dictated to Israel by God. In these instructions, He specified the numbers that were to be used in Burnt Offerings made to Him. These numbers were important and had to be obeyed if the sacrifice was to be acceptable to Him.

Meat Offering (grain)

God used 3 measurements for the meat or grain offerings to accompany the animal sacrifices using the ephah:


1/10 of fine flour for a lamb
2/10 of fine flour for a ram
3/10 of fine flour for a bullock

Again, God used the first three numbers to design the fractions of the ephah

God also specified fractions of oil of the hin were to be a part of the Meat Offering

Hins of Oil for the Meat Offering

1/2 hin of oil for a bullock

1/3 hin of oil for a  ram

1/4  hin of oil for a lamb


Drink Offering


God also used three measurements of the hin for the drink offerings.

1/2 of  a hin of wine for a bullock

1/3rd of a hin of wine for a ram

1/4th of a hin of wine for a lamb

These numbers are all apart of a numbering system that Yahweh used to number His sanctuaries that He instructed Israel to build. Note that there are 3 of everything - The number 3 is the 3rd prime - a number that Yahweh has used extensively to number His great events.


 God designed the Burnt Offering to have three major components

Animal Sacrifice

Meat Offering

Drink Offering


The Three Measurements Meat and Drink Offerings and their Containers

For the meat and drink offerings that were to accompany the animal sacrifice, God  used three  measurements. Each of the measurements contained three parts pertaining to the three animals. God sequenced the three measurements using His 2+1 sequence. In two of the measurements the hin was used. In one of the measurements the ephah was used (2+1).

The Daily sacrifice -Another Ephah and Hin Example

Numbers 28:1-7

"1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Command the children of Israel, and say unto them, My offering, and my bread for my sacrifices made by fire, for a sweet savour unto me, shall ye observe to offer unto me in their due season.
3 And thou shalt say unto them, This is the offering made by fire which ye shall offer unto the LORD; two lambs of the first year without spot day by day, for a continual burnt offering."
"4 The one lamb shalt thou offer in the morning, and the other lamb shalt thou offer at even;
5 And a tenth part of an ephah of flour for a meat offering, mingled with the fourth part of an hin of beaten oil."

Again, the ephah was the measurement used to measure the meat (grain) offering. Only a tenth of an ephah was used for the meat offering for a lamb. This is consistent with God's instructions in Numbers 15:1-12.
These numbers are important in understanding how God numbered His Temple offerings which are highlighted in the book " Yahweh's Temple Numbers"







One Fifth Examples

Borrowing From One's Tithe

In Leviticus 27: 30-34, is  one of a few examples where God uses the fraction of 1/5.

"27:30: And all the tithe of the land, whether of the seed of the land, or of the fruit of the tree, is the LORD's: it is holy unto the LORD.
27:31: And if a man will at all redeem ought of his tithes, he shall add thereto the fifth part thereof.
27:32: And concerning the tithe of the herd, or of the flock, even of whatsoever passeth under the rod, the tenth shall be holy unto the LORD.
27:33: He shall not search whether it be good or bad, neither shall he change it: and if he change it at all, then both it and the change thereof shall be holy; it shall not be redeemed.
27:34: These are the commandments, which the LORD commanded Moses for the children of Israel in mount Sinai."

In this example, God used the fraction of 1/5 as fee for the usage of His Holy Tithe.  A person was to restore the tithe borrowed plus He was to add a fifth more to it  when he restored the tithe.




One Fourth Examples

     Dividing a day for Confessing and  Worship

In Nehemiah 9:3-4, the Bible states:
"3 And they stood up in their place, and read in the book of the law of the LORD their God one fourth part of the day; and another fourth part they confessed, and worshipped the LORD their God.
4 Then stood up upon the stairs, of the Levites, Jeshua, and Bani, Kadmiel, Shebaniah, Bunni, Sherebiah, Bani, and Chenani, and cried with a loud voice unto the LORD their God."

There are 12 hours in a day, therefore, 1/4th of a day is 3 hours. The people of Israel spent 1/3th of the day or 3 hours  reading the book of the law. The people of Israel spent another 1/4 of the day or 3 hours confessing their sins before God.




Dividing the Earth Into  4 Parts

God created the earth and it is one planet. Yet God added sections to the earth using the number 4, each section is a fraction of the whole:

Revelation 20:7-8

7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
8 And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

God divided the one Earth into 4 parts as fractions of 1 (1/4+1/4+1/4+1/4=1). In Revelation 6:8, God decided to punish the 4th part of the Earth because of evil.

8 And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

In verse 8, the fourth part of the earth will be divided by four again. The scripture notes that those of the fourth part will be by one of the four plagues:

1. Sword 

2. hunger 

3. death 

4. Beasts




    One Third Examples


     Zechariah Example

 In Zechariah 13: 8-9, God decided to punish the nation of Israel for their sins. God divided the fate of the people into fractions of 3rd's. The fate of the people were divided into 2 parts using fractions of 3rd's, to reflect the 1+1 sequence model.

13:8: And it shall come to pass, that in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left therein.
13:9: And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and they shall say, The LORD is my God.

    Again, God used the 1+1 sequence when He numbered the people by 3rds. This is seen in the following 1+1 series structure.


 The scripture notes that 2/3rds would die. However, God will save the 3rd-3rd and bring them through the fire. God also designed the 3 -3rds to reflect His 2+1 sequence as seen in the illustration above.




Ezekiel Example

In Ezekiel 5:11-12, God  decided to punish the whole nation of Israel because of their sins. In this example, God divides the whole nation into fractions of 3rds.

11 Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity.
12 A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.

Each third has its on punishment, therefore, there are three punishments for the three groups. In this example God sequence the three destinies using His 2+1 sequence.

In two of the destinies each third is eliminated in the land. In the 3rd - 3rd, God scatters the people and draws a sword after them, they do not die in the land. There are survivors in the third group that are scattered.




Revelation Seal Example

In the book of Revelation, God used this method again to number Mankind in one of His plagues because of their sins:

Revelation 9:13-15
"13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,
14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.
15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men."
In this example, God considered the whole of Mankind and used the 6th trumpet to slay a 3rd of mankind because of their evil ways. In keeping with His one concept, Yahweh used only 1 number to number the time that His angels were prepared. The angels were prepared for:
1 hour
1 day
1 month
1 Year
God divided this 1 time period into 4 components and highlighted the number 1 in each of them. After their preparation they will slay 1/3rd of mankind. Two 2/3rds would not be die by this event. Therefore, 3 groups reflect the 2+1 sequence by their destinies.




Revelation Trumpets Example

The plagues of the trumpets in the book of Revelation are a  good example of God using fractions of a whole to determine how much of His wrath was to be executed .  For example, in Revelation 8:7-13, the Bible describes the fractions of the earth destroyed as each trumpet sounds. 

8:7: The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
8:8: And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
8:9: And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
8:10: And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
8:11: And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
8:12: And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
8:13: And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!


This is just a sample of how God used the prime number 3 in the form of a fraction to dispense His wrath upon the earth. God also used the 1+1 sequence to disperse the plagues. 

God designed His series of plagues using One number. (1/3+1/3+1/3=1 or a whole) God also designed this series of plagues to reflect His 1+1 sequence.  One third of a subject matter was plagued first in the trumpets, the remainder of a subject matter was plagued later in the execution of the vials (1+1). The dispensation of the plagues in 3rds also reflects a 1+2 sequence.




One Half Examples

Memorial Offering for Being Numbered

In Exodus Chapter 30, God called for the people to be numbered. In verse  12. God  commanded a memorial offering from those that were numbered. In Exodus 30:12-15, God told Moses:

"12: When thou takest the sum of the children of Israel after their number, then shall they give every man a ransom for his soul unto the LORD, when thou numberest them; that there be no plague among them, when thou numberest them.
13: This they shall give, every one that passeth among them that are numbered, half a shekel after the shekel of the sanctuary: (a shekel is twenty gerahs:) an half shekel shall be the offering of the LORD.
14: Every one that passeth among them that are numbered, from twenty years old and above, shall give an offering unto the LORD.
15: The rich shall not give more, and the poor shall not give less than half a shekel, when they give an offering unto the LORD, to make an atonement for your souls."


God commanded the people of Israel to give half a shekel as a memorial offering for their souls.
