CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

Biblical numerology refers to the interpretation of numerical values

used in the Hebrew Bible and the Greek New Testament where we

believe that the numbers apart from indicating the normal numbers

also imply quality or attributes of the value. This type of approach

had been used and studied almost as ealy as writings of Bible

itself. This book is my attempt to collect these semiotics and

illustrate them from the Bible itself. According to the theory,

these numbers were purposely inserted by their authors to

emphasize a particular message. These simply becomes a symbol

so that the very mention of the number will ignite memories and

connections to enhance the concepts and relationships. It is this

aspect I have in mind when I entitled this books as the Symbology

of Biblical Numbers. I do not go into the gematria and numerolgy

and encoding of secrets in the Bible. This is a more wider field.

Numerical symbology is most abundantly found in Ezekiel, Daniel

and Revelation.

There is a whole secular area of numerology which is directed to

prophetic interpretations etc., akin to palmistry and astrology

Bible, is an absolute mine of numbers and their symbolic

representations. The numbers in the bible are present in a

definite pattern and reveal different meanings associated to

them. These numbers signify various religious incidents that

took place in history and the teachings by Jesus Christ. The

meanings of these numbers and their symbolic

representation slightly vary in the Old and new testaments

but both reveal the depth and concealed concepts of these

numbers to the readers. It is mentioned in the scriptures that

the universe is formed by three expressions, namely,

numbers, letters and the words, and the whole circle of life

revolves around them. The study of the vibrations of these

numbers is the study of tat divine creative energies in


different levels of manifestations. There is a description of

deep meanings related to the person and places in the Bible

and the study of these numbers lead to a better

understanding about the scripture. The study of numbers

and their numeric symbolization in the bible is known as

Bible numerology.

Hebrew Numbers

Hebrew and Greek languages did not develop a notation for

number system as we have it today. Instead they used their

alphabet itself to denote numbers. Every alphabet is thus

given a number. As such it is simply a word which when

adding up the sum of all represent the whole number. As

such when it form part of a text it will not make any difference

unless we recognize them as a number. Thus every word is

a number and every number can have different words

depending on how the adding numbers are placed in the

word in its ultimate sense. This is what developed the

numerology within Hebrew culture. Thus any Hebrew book

can be thought of as a series of numbers placed in such a

way as to make sense. In other words we can say the whole

book is encoded.

Even though Hebrew letter system has evolved, the mode of

numerical counting in Hebrew using the Hebrew AlefBet

remain the same as it was during the early Hebrew history.

Today numerical counting system uses the European digits

(0, 1, 2, 3...9) to represent numbers.

Each letter in the Hebrew alphabet (or aleph-bet) has a

numerical value.

This is how it is assigned.

The first 10 letters (consonants actually) have the values

1-10.


The next 9 letters are valued 20, 30, ... 100.

The remainder are valued 200, 300, and 400.

The number values for each character are shown in the table

below.

There is no representation for zero (0).

This is the system used by Hillel II in the fourth century A.D.

Later, the final forms of the letters kaf, mem, nun, pe, and

tzadi were used for the missing values 500, 600, 700, 800,

and 900.

These were the original numberings:


The Hebrew script itself grew out of pictographs through the

ages. Each picture itself has a story and basic theme and

interpretation. These also come into play as association of

numbers and

names.


Development of the Hebrew Scripts over the ages.


Example

‏.תשסד is: The number 764 in Hebrew

The value is calculated as 764 = 4+60+300+400 =

תשסד

It can be permuted in anyway. As one can see it does not

matter in what order you write them they will represent the

same number.

My name for example

works out as

. .

M. M. N N N = M.M.Ninan= 4+4+5+5+5 =23= 20+3=


Thus it allows for a lot of manipulations and hence

interpretations whether permissible or intended.

Exceptions to Hebrew Number Formation

There are exceptions. Numbers ending in 15 or 16 would be

written as yud-he (10+5) and yud-vav (10+6) (YH), since

the letters "yud he vav he" (YHWH) is the name of God YH is

also the name often used. Hence by convention, for the sake

of sanctity they are written as tet-vav (9+6 ) טו and

tet-zayin (9+7) טז are always used. The number 18

‏,יח yud-het, uses the same letters as the word for life het-yud

‏.חי So it is written

15 16 18

טו

9+6

Not

10+5

טז

9+7

Not

10+6

חי

8+10


Thousands, Millions

Thousands are represented by the same letters as the unit

values, sometimes a character similar to an apostrophe is

appended. The character is a punctuation mark called

geresh. When geresh is not available, the single quote ‘ is

often substituted. A space often separates thousands,

millions, etc. The pattern for numbers 1-999 is repeated for

each thousand from 1,001- 999,999. Millions and Billions etc.

are formed by extending and repeating the pattern.


1,000

א׳ 1,000,000

א׳ א׳ 3,001,764

When numbers are used with text, punctuation marks are

added to show that what written is a number not a word.


similar numerical system based on Greek alphabet in almost

exact parallel to Hebrew. Here is their number sytem.

COMPARE THE NUMBER CORRESPONDENCE

HEBREW ALPHABET and GREEK ALPHABET

The Greek system of numbering letters of the alphabet,

called isopsephy. ἴσος isos meaning "equal" and ψῆφος

psephos meaning "pebble") is the Greek word for the

practice of adding up the number values of the letters in a

word to form a single number. It is based on a similar method

to Hebrew gematria. The Greek alphabet, along with the


numerical equivalent, are outlined in the table. Note that two

letters (digamma and koppa) have fallen into disuse. .

Digamma literally means "double gamma" and is descriptive

of the original letter's shape.

Digamma, later called Stigma, continued in use as a

numerical symbol, as seen in the 666 of Revelation 13:18.

The isopsephia values of Ιησους (Iesous, translated as

"Jesus"), and Χριστος (Christos, translated as "Christ") are

also shown.

Arabic numerals used for numbers were adopted and

adapted from Indian numerals in the 8th and 9th century AD.

Until then gematria methods were used in most cultures.


CHAPTER TWO

USE OF NUMBERS IN THE BIBLE

Words are a means of encoding concepts and ideas so that it

can be used to transfer it to a receiver. Hence there are

meanings to numbers in the context of secular culture as well

as religious culture. The secular culture expands it into

occult sciences of numerology. In secular numeralogy a

number is generated using a person’s name or date of birth

or something personal and interpret that number qualities as

personificaion. They then form part of the arts of fortune

telling like, palmistry, face reading, astronomy etc.

Evidently words are encoded messages from the speaker to

the creator. So are the written words. Thus God’s word

also should be considered as encoded. These concepts

are based on the symbolisms the receiver uses in their own

culture. Since God uses the language of the culture it will

certainly reflect these secular meanings. As such they

necessarily involves symbols of the culture of the prophet

who receive the divine message. Thus most of the Biblical


numerolgy is connected to Hebrew culture since Old

Testament is revealed in Hebew. Later the New Testament

grew in the Greek culture and it came to be using the

Greco-Roman culture.

The search for hidden meanings in Scripture did not flourish

in rabbinic Judaism till after 70 CE, (that is only after the

destruction of the second temple) after which this endeavour

produced wonderfully intricate interpretations.

John 8:31-32: Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed

on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples

indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make

you free.

The process is illuminated by the medieval acronym pardes.

"PaRDeS " ( 243 (5 76 ) is etymologically related to the

English word "paradise" and stands for four types of

hermeneutical meanings:

These are:


• Peshat ‏(פְּשָׁט)‏ — "plain" ("simple"), "surface"

("straight") or the direct

meaning.

•Remez ‏—(רֶמֶז)‏ "hints" or the deep (allegoric: hidden

or symbolic)

meaning beyond just the literal sense.

•Derash ‏(דְּרַשׁ)‏ — from Hebrew darash: "inquire"

("seek") —

the \comparative (midrashic)

meaning, as given

through similar occurrences.

•Sod ‏(סוֹד)‏ — "secret" ("mystery") or the

esoteric/mystical meaning, as

given through inspiration or revelation.


Remember the Holy of Holies was out of bounds to the laity

and it can be entered in only once a year and that too by the

high priest and that with the blood of sacrifice.

Esoteric interpretations have led to many misuse of the

scripture and into development of cults. Thus we should be

careful in using the higher methods especially if it contradicts

the plain meaning.

For details see my book on Hermeutics

Having said that I will try to look into the meaning of the

numbers as used in the Bible.

CHAPTER THREE

ONE

The number one means unity.

Numerical Oneness. Organic Onenes


The first letter in Hebrew alphabet which its numerological

value of 1 is Aleph.

Aleph has no sound and it is the beginning of everything.

This is God.

In India we have clear teaching of Nirguna Brahman and

Saguna Brahman.

God is unknowable because he cannot be interacted in His

fulness by any human. Hence even though he is all

properties, humans will not be able to understand or

comprehend and define God. The concept is inherent also

in Caballah which is adopted by the Christian Caballists as

God defined as Ein. Ein means nothing or meaning


unknowable. It is not that God is nothing, but we can know

nothing about God. They call it neti, neti meaning - not this,

not that. It is only when God expresses himself within the

realm of human existence we can know God and then again

that will not be the essence of God. God in his essence is

unknowable. God makes himself knowable as he creates

realms within himself and we know God’s emanations or

energies within that realm of interaction. In Eastern

Churches we distinguish between God’s Essence and God’s

Energies.

Ein - Nothing is the definition as best as we could define God.

If we want to assign an essence itself we have to go beyond

nothingness - which are defined by the Caballists as Ein Sof

and Ein Sof Ahr . Ein Sof is explained as infinite - which

implies fulness of all properties, EinSof Ahr implies infinte

Light with Character. Only when God reveals himself we

have diversity and hence sees Him as an organic unity. This

is Saguna Brahaman - the first appearances of God. This

cannot be unity nor His essence. This is the basis of

Christian Trinity argument.


The first letter or number one Alef has no sound, yet in

Hebrew it is written as a Person “the Great I AM”. This

represents the Ein - the Nirguna Brahman which extends to

Ein Sof as the root of all realities . Since Alef has no sound,

the first reality is expressed by the first and the second letters

of Hebrew together which is the word Ab or Av which simply

means Father. God is defined as the father of everything

both the material and spiritual world. Ab hence is the Ain

Sof Aur - the infinite, light and Abba the Saguna Brahman.


This unity has two aspects. Primarily it indicates numerical

oneness. One - no more and no less.

Again this oneness may be more organic so that there is a

unity within it.

Here is what the numerology describe it.

PersonalityTraits: Original, Individual, Master, Creator,

Leader, Pioneer, Dominance,

The Beginning 1 gives birth to all other numbers.

However, that being said, Jungian psychology places 1 as a

symbol of unity.

Like the old saying there is no "I in T-E-A—M" when people


work together as one, and have 1 individuals among them,

the changes that result astound.

You can see these reflected in the Biblical numerology:

The first thing that brings to mind is the Shema of Israel:

In fact the basis of monotheism is that God alone exist.

Everthing else are emanations of God’s energies which form

the cosmos. It is not part of the essence of God.

In that sense even the cosmos is in existence within God and

forms part of the oneness of God.

Yachid represents numeric oneness which has no

components. One Alone. This is represented in the case of

God as “I AM” or El

Echad on the other hand is an organic oneness of many

components forming unity. This is represented the case of

God as Elohim where the plural is used.


In Hebrew there is duality word for the singular El as Elah.

In the Shema of Israel, God is not Yachid but Echad.

God is not homogeneous but hetrogenious and is potentially

infinte.

The word YACHID, which always means one and ONE

ALONE (not a unified one) is NEVER used of God

ANYWHERE in the Old Testament.

In the New Testament, the greek word corresponding to

Yachid is Hen. See John 10:30; Matt. 19:5; Mk 12:29.

There is a corresponding word for Yachid in Greek which is

Monos - One Only. See Matt 24:36; 1 Tim 1:17. Two

examples can be shown which makes it clear.

The Organic oneness concept is seen in the prayer of Jesus:

I pray also for those who will believe in me through their

message, 21 that all of them may be one, Father, just as you

are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the

world may believe that you have sent me. 22 I have given

them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we

are one— 23 I in them and you in me—so that they may be

brought to complete unity. This is the echad of 1


Apart from the defining of God as one, we have referrences

to Jesus as One or First

Jesus is called the firstborn of every creature (Colossians

1:15)

Jesus is called the firstborn from the dead (1:18)

Jesus is called the firstborn among many brethren (Romans

8:29).

Jesus is called the "first of the firstfruits" (1Corinthians 15:20,

23), indicating the immortal humanity through the

resurrection.

Jesus is called the FIRST or Alpha (the first letter of the

Greek language) and the Last or Omega (last letter of Greek)

(Revelation 1:11, 17, 22:13).

Greek

Alef- Tau (Hebrew forms:

pictograph to modern)

Notice Tau was a Cross

Christianity entails one hope, one faith, one baptism, one

Lord and Savior and one Father (Ephesians 4:4 - 6). Alef in

the ancient pictograohic writing was the head of an ox

indicating power and authority while, Tau the last letter was


indeed a cross which indicates total redemption back to the

beginning of all creation.

In any language or culture around the globe, the number one

means unity. It is of great importance no matter where you

go. One has a dual nature, as do most numbers, in that it

represents both primacy – being first – and unity – being

a whole, singular thing. The number one is self-sufficient; it

stands alone, indivisible by any other numbers, as the

primary source of all numbers after it. By its very nature the

number one leaves out any differences that may exist

between numbers. It is neither in conflict or harmony with

any.

The organic unity is particularly clear in the concept of

husband and wife who become one flesh,

and in exactly similar way in the concept of the Church as

one body.

Jesus prayed to God that his followers

“that they may all be one,

just as you, Father, are in union with me

and I am in union with you.”—

John 17:21; Matthew 19:6.


+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++>

http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/number05.htm

Yacheed means absolute unity, or

uniqueness, an only one.

It occurs only twelve times in the Old Testament (3x2 2 ),

viz: Pentateuch, 3 timess and Rest of Old Testament 9 = (3 2 )

times.

• Genesis 22:2, "Take now thy son, thine only son Isaac."

• Genesis 22:12 and 16, "Hast not withheld thy son, thine only

son."

• Judges 11:34, "She was his only child."

• Psalm 22:20, "Deliver...my darling" (marg. only one).

• Psalm 25:16, "I am desolate and afflicted."

• Psalm 35:17, "Rescue...my darling (marg. only one) from the

lions."

• Psalm 68:6, "God setteth the solitary in families."

• Proverbs 4:3, "I was...tender and only beloved in the sight of my

mother."

• Jeremiah 6:26, "Mourning as for an only son."

• Amos 8:10, "I will make it as the mourning of an only son."

• Zechariah 12:10, "As one that mourneth for his only son."

These are all the occurrences of the word Yacheed, and

here therefore we see the meaning of the word.

But this is not the word which is used in Deuteronomy 6:4,

and it is never used of Jehovah.

It is used of the Lord Jesus as the only begotten Son; but

never of Jehovah—the self-existant One (- Echad).


CHAPTER FOUR

TWO


2's symbolism is the union of and peace between different

entities. It seeks to end separateness and unite all

Number 2 is represented in Hebrew by the second letter Bet

“Beit is the second letter of the Hebrew alphabet and it

symbolizes blessing, creation and duality, therefore, it stands

for number 2. In creating, God imbued creatures with his

blessings. I am a bundle of (2's) -- 2 eyes, 2 ears, 2 nostrils,

2 hands, 2 feet, right and left brain, etc.

When the male and female harmonize, new life

comes into being and God's blessing is realized.

The upper left corner of the symbol points upward

indicating that God the creator is the author of

blessed harmony.”

beit.htm

Since the first letter alef has no sound, the Bible starts with

the second letter Bet. Incidentally the last letter of Torah is

the last letter Tau of Hebrew, thus the Torah is the beginning

and end of humanity. Jesus claims himself to be the first

and the last, alpha and tau not just bet and tau which implies

his claim be part of the Godhead in his essence.

The second letter of the Hebrew alef-bet, bet - ‏,ב mirrors

the symbolism of the number two. It is called Bet. It is from

this letter that we get our word, both. This letter is the first

letter of the Torah and of the book of Genesis. As a prefix,

the letter bet may function as a preposition meaning "in",

"at", or "with". Bet is the first letter of the Torah. As Bet is the

number 2 in gematria, this is said to symbolize that there are

two parts to Torah: the Written Torah and the Oral Torah.


http://www.biblewheel.com/Wheel/Spokes/Bet_House.php

The creation of the Cosmos was the building up of a House

for God himself to dwell. The house symbolizes the

ultimate purpose of all reality: to become a dwelling place

below for the manifestation of God's presence. He is the

Father, the head of the household. Holy Spirit Ruach is a

female gender and like Eve from Adam procedes from the

Father and is he Mother of All. It is the Spirit that Gives life.

Thus once again we see 2 as organic unity of God the Father

and Holy Spirit the Mother and also of the whole creation as

unity while the creation is given the freedom and form a

duality without which, the creaion would have been just a

machine and would not for a family. Ultimately God will

make his dwelling among his sons and daughters and will


form the family as he has planned. The whole theme

therefore runs from Genesis through the Temples and the

creation of the Church till the final reunion of the total family.

As a prefix, the letter bet may function as a preposition

meaning "in", "at", or "with". Bet is the first letter of the Torah.

As Bet is the number 2 in gematria, this is said to symbolize

that there are two parts to Torah: the Written Torah and the

Oral Torah

During Creation week God made two great lights, one to rule

the day (sun) and a lesser one to rule the night (moon -

Genesis 1:16).

"I am in the Father and the Father is in me." (John

14:10 NRSV)

Thus the second is a support. We see that this

is implied in the assertion of truth which is

corroborated only by the agreement of two. This

can of course be more than two, but the minimum is

two. One witness could not establish the truth.


The agreement of two releases creative power.

THE PRINCIPLE OF RESONANCE


In Physics a phenomena known as resonance have been

known for centuries where in two simultaneous impulses will

sustain vibrations to give extremely high amplitudes of

vibration if they have the same frequency.

Mechanical and acoustic resonance, Electrical resonance,

Optical resonance, Orbital resonance of celestial

orbits,Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) are very well

known to the Physicists today. In the spiritual level this

phenomena exists which more or less explain the power of

prayer of experiment.

Two symbolizes Testimony


"Again I say unto you, that if two of you

shall agree

on earth as touching anything that they

shall ask,

It shall be done for them

of My Father which is in heaven.

The two witnesses spoken about in the book of Revelation

chapter eleven. They are the Lord's faithful witnesses who

bear testimony to the truth!


John 8:17 "It is also written in your law, that the testimony

of two men is true.."

When Jesus sent out his Evangelists he sent them out two

by two so that the testimony is confirmed by two witnesses

following the OT rule.


Luke 10:1 "After these things the Lord appointed other

seventy also, and sent them Two and Two before His face

into every city and place, whither He Himself would come."

Mark 6:7 "And He called unto Him the twelve, and began

to send them forth two and two; and gave them power over

unclean spirits."

At the time of the ascension we have two angels affirming

the return of Jesus. Acts 1:10

Duality

While two witnesses spports the truth, it can also mean two

witnesses opposing each other.

Thus 2 also indicate rupture or seperation to the extent

of duality of God and Satan..

The assertion of morality implies within it the assertion of

immorality. This dual concept is not proposed in the Old

Testament as such but is clearly pronounced only in

Zorastrianism

In theology, dualism may refer to duotheism, bitheism, or

ditheism. Although ditheism/bitheism imply moral dualism,

they are not equivalent: ditheism/bitheism implies (at least)

two gods, while moral dualism does not imply any -theism

(theos = god) whatsoever. Old Testament asserts moral

dualism without duotheism or two god assumption. It is

similiar to light and darkness. Darkness has no essence

and do not exists as in Light. Darkness is absence of light.

Immorality is actually absence of morality. In the same way,


Satan is not in anyway equivalent to the God. Satan is the

result of God allowing freedom of will in his creatures. God

defines what is good and right.

Both bitheism and ditheism imply a belief in two equally

powerful gods with complementary or antonymous

properties; however, while bitheism implies harmony,

ditheism implies rivalry and opposition, such as between

good and evil, or bright and dark, or summer and winter. For

example, a ditheistic system would be one in which one god

is creative, the other is destructive (cf. theodicy). In the

original conception of Zoroastrianism, for example, Ahura

Mazda was the spirit of ultimate good, while Ahriman (Angra

Mainyu) was the spirit of ultimate evil.


yin and Yang dualism of Taoism Good and Evil powers in

Zorastrianism

Dualism can also refer to the relationship between God and

creation. A dualism of God and creation exists in some

traditions of Christianity, like Paulicianism, Catharism, and

Gnosticism. The Paulicians, was a Byzantine Christian sect,

who believed that the universe was created by an evil God,

who exists separately from a moral heavenly God.

Catharist faith was agin a Dualism, where the Good God

created the invisible and spiritual universe, while Evil God

created the material world. Some believed that they both


were of equal power while others considered the evil god as

a creature of the Good God. As we can see these are

parallel to the Zoroastrianism.

Thus we see the same dichotomy of unity and harmony in

one and antagonism and duality struggle in the other. In

mathematics, two is the foundation of all division. Likewise

with humankind, the number two signifies man's fall and the

opposition that can infiltrate his being throughout life.

God created the Light on the second day, which divided the

world into dark and light. This clearly shows the divisive

nature of the number two in the Bible. When God created

Adam, Adam was both male and female, an organic unity of

duality. It was later that Eve the female part was seperated

creating male and female. The concept is clearly that the

duality of consonance and disonance, harmony and discord

was inherent in the creatures providing choices and hence

freedom by design of God. While the first sentence in the

Bible seems to shows the perfection and order, the second


sentence, "And the earth was without form and void," shows

the dissonance.

Two is the Number of the God-Son (the Verb) within Trinity,

in the Christian symbolism. If 1 is the essence, 2 is the

existence. If one is the Nirguna Brahman (unknowable God)

2 is Immanuel, God with us the Saguna Brahman living in the

family with us.

2 evidently is the symbol of sexuality since 2 represents also

the division of the unit in male and female. It also symbolises

the proceding of the Ruach (The Mother) from the Father.

We see the Spirit hovering over the waters which created the

world. It is the through the interaction of the waters of

womb and the life giving spirit we have the life in cosmos.

Thus we have a list of two:

The two great divisions of the Bible: the Old and the New

Testament.

The two sons of Rebekah. (Gn 25,23-24)

The two marriages of Jacob. (Gn 29,15-30)

The two cherubs of the ark. (Ex 25,18)

The two stone tables on which were registered the Ten

Commandments of God given to Moses on the Mount Sinai.

(Ex 31,18)

The two silver trumpets that God asked Moses to forge. (Nb

10,1)

The two expiatory goats.

The two columns in front of the Hall of the Temple of

Solomon: Jachin and Boaz. (1 K 7, 15-22)

The two kingdoms of Juda and Israel. (1 K 12,19)

The two golden calves of Rehoboam. (1 K 12,28)


The two olive-trees situated on both side of the golden lamp,

in the vision of Zechariah. (Zc 4,3)

By group of two Jesus-Christ sent his apostles to preach the

Gospel. (Mk 6,7)

The two turtledoves and the two doves of the purification. (Lk

2,24)

The two witnesses of the Revelation. (Rv 11,3-4)

The two fishes of the multiplication of breads. (Mt 14,19)

The two swords of Peter. (Lk 22,38)

The two thiefs. (Mt 27,38)

The two kinds of baptism: water and spirit. (Jn 3,5)

The two angels of the tomb. (Jn 20,12)

The two angels of the Ascension. (Act 1,10)

The two sons of Abraham. (Ga 4,22)

The two coins of money given by the widow. (Mk 12,42)

The two coins of money that the hotel keeper receives. (Lk

10,35)

The key of any duality consists in the antithesis. Growth

comes with thesis, antithesis and synthesis. This is

associated with Hegel and is known ad Dialetics. This is the

basis of all sciences and logic. If creation itself was

conclusively perfect allowing no variations then there is no

margin or uncertainity for change. If Physical and Spiriual

world were created obeying the uncompromising laws, then

the world will be perfect machine and beings will have no

choice. After the initial creation by God, change is always

from order to a higher order depending on varitions

introduced due to new creations or new order. This will

explain the need for the antithesis.

YETZER HARA AND YETZER TOV


According to Rabbinic tradition man is given two inclination.

Yetser Hara is the inclinations based on the individual self.

Self confidence, ability of push through actions, eat good

food, drink have home ans good choice of sexual partners

etc are basic to Hara,

Yetse Hatov is the inclinations for doing good, caring for

others and the environment etc.

Yetser Hara is usually translated as “evil inclinations” and

Yetser Hatov as “good inclinations” though it gives a wrong

interpretation to poor Hara. A proper balance between

individuls and society brings a good society. An organ

which functions efffectively without becoming cancer

provides a good body.

The ancient Sages decided that they were going to capture

and imprison the Yetzer HaRa. So they ordered a complete

fast of three day….whereupon he [the Yetzer] was

surrendered to them. He came forth from the Holy of Holies

like a fiery lion…. He [the Yetzer] said to them, “Realize that

if you kill me, the world is finished.” They held him for three

days, then they looked in the whole land of Israel and not an

egg could be found. So they asked, “What shall we do

now?”…So they put out his eyes and let him go; (Yoma

69b).

It is this concept that later developed into Satan. In the book

of Job we see Satan as one of the sons of God and sitting in

the Council of Elohim. He was an official of the


Government of God as an Prosecutor so that the world may

be correctly run and not go into disorder.

Freedom of will, thinking, progress, maturity etc are involved

in the presence of Satan concept in the Bible. This was

inherenttly built into both the material and spirtual realm.


CHAPTER FIVE

THREE


The number three in Hebrew is represented by the third letter

in the alphabet Gimel which actually means a Camel. . The


meaning of the letter is thus interpreted as “to lift up”

Greek Letter is called Gama

Three lines are the minimum required to isolate a space in

two dimension - The triangle.

Progress is achived in the three pronged process in

dialectics . Every thesis has an anti-thesis which eventually

provides a synthesis as a change. Logic, society and

growth follow this system. Three is thus the basis of growth

and perfection.


There is a triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (1 Jn

5:7)(Mt 28:19)

3 represents divine perfection and perfect witness.

1 John 5:6-9 This is He that came by water and blood, Jesus

Christ; not with the water only,


ut with the water and with the blood, and it is the Spirit that

witnesses,

because the Spirit is the truth. Because the witnessing

ones are three:

the Spirit, and the water, and the blood; and the three agree

in one.

If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is

greater: because the witness of God is this that He

witnessed concerning His Son

Qualities of God are three:

God is omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent.

The Hebrew Bible is divided into three parts:

the Torah ("teaching" or "law"), the Nevi'im ("prophets"),

and the Ketuvim ("writings").


The opening verse of the Bible describes the creation of

the Space- Matter - Time continum.

“In the beginning (TIME), God created the Heavens

(Space) and the Earth (Matter)” Gen 1:1

Time is divided into the Past, Present, and Future.

Space is divided into Length, Breadth and Height.

Matter is divided into Solid, Liquids and Gases.

Human capabilities are divided into -- thoughts, words, and

deeds.

There are three degrees of comparison -- smaller than,

same as, and greater than.


There are three "kingdoms" in nature -- animal, vegetable,

and mineral.

"In this number we have quite a new set of phenomena.

"Three therefore stands for that which is solid,

real, substantial, complete, and entire" "Three"

therefore is the number of "completion,"

"finality," entirety."

FOUR PERFECTIONS


As Bullinger points out, "three" is the first of four perfect

numbers in Scripture.

3 "Three" denotes divine perfection.

7 "Seven" (as in seven days in the week) denotes

spiritual perfection.

10 "Ten" denotes ordinal perfection (Ten

Commandments, the tithe is a "tenth", Noah was

the "tenth" generation from Adam).

12 And "twelve" (as in twelve sons of Jacob, twelve

apostles) denotes governmental

perfection.

Hence, the number three points to

that which is real, substantial, perfect, complete,

essential, and Divine.

There were three Patriarchs -- Abraham, Isaac, and

Jacob.


"Birkat abot". ("the God of our fathers, Abraham,

Isaac, and Jacob");

Abraham is a type of YEHOVAH God the Father.

Isaac, who was willingly offered to be sacrificed, was a type

of Yeshua, the Messiah.

And Jacob, whose name was changed to "Israel," is a type of

the Church of YEHOVAH God, for as the apostle Paul wrote,

the Church is "the Israel of God" (Galatians 6:16).

Thus YEHOVAH's Plan involves three "stages" -- the

Father, the Son, and the Bride (being formed now!).

Father Son Church

Three Days

occur throughout the Bible indicating the perfect period


Moses and Aaron petitioned Pharaoh, “Now let us take a

three-day journey into the desert to offer sacrifices to the

LORD our God” (Exod 5:3; cf. Exod 3:18; 8:27).

The fleeing Hebrews went three days without finding

water in the Desert of Shur (Exod 15:22).

When the Hebrews had traveled from Mount Sinai for

three days, the people began to complain (Num 10:33-11:1).

When the Hebrews neared the Jordan River they were

informed, “Three days from now you will cross the

Jordan here to go in and take possession of the land the

LORD your God is giving you for your own” (Josh 1:11; cf.

3:1-4).

The men of Timnah were stumped by Samson’s riddle for

three days (Judg 14:14)

King Rehoboam gave Jeroboam and the delegation of

Israelites a three day waiting period as he considered their

petition for less stringent royal demands (1 Kgs 12:5; cf.

12:12).

Jonah spent 3 days in the belly of the "great fish" (Jon

1:17)(Mt 12:40).

When God released Him, he spent 3 days walking across

Nineveh warning the people to repent (Jon 3:3).

In the New Testament Jesus told the Jewish populace at

the Temple, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again

in three days” (John 2:16), a fact that his disciples later

recalled (v. 22).

Paul was blinded for 3 days by Jesus (Acts 9:9),

Left over meat from a vow or voluntary sacrifice had to be

destroyed (burned with fire) on the third day (Lev

7:16-17)(Lev 19:5-7).

Three Months

Moses’ mother was able to conceal her baby for three

months (Exod 2:3; cf. Acts 7:20; Heb 11:23)


The ark remained at the house of Obed-Edom for three

months (1 Chron 13:14).

Three months after Judah visited the supposed shrine

prostitute, he learned that she was really his daughter-in-law

Tamar who was pregnant with his child (Gen 38:24).

Asa’s reforms were celebrated in Jerusalem in the third

month of his fifteenth year of reign (2 Chron 15:10).

Support for the priests of Hezekiah’s day was gained by

means of a tithe which began “in the third month and finished

in the seventh month” (2 Chron 31:7).

Ezekiel received a message from the Lord concerning the

fate of Egypt in the third month of the eleventh year of his

exile (Ezek 31:1)

Lord revealed through Amos, “I also withheld rain from you

when the harvest was still three months away” (Amos 4:7).

In the New Testament record Jesus’ mother Mary visited

Elizabeth, Zechariah’s wife, and stayed for three months

(Luke 1:56).

Paul stayed in Ephesus for three months and “spoke boldly”

in the synagogue there (Acts 19:8), and subsequently stayed

three months in Greece (Acts 20:3).

Still later after the ship that was carrying him to Rome to

stand trial was wrecked in a storm, he and his captives

stayed on the island of Malta for three months (Acts 28:11).

Three years

“When you enter the land and plant any kind of fruit tree,

regards its fruit as forbidden. For three years you are to

consider it forbidden; it must not be eaten” (Lev 19:23).

Hebrews were forbidden to sow or reap, to plant, reap or

harvest in the fiftieth year for it was to be a holy year for them.

In compensation the Lord promises “I will send you such a

blessing in the sixth year that the land will yield enough for

three years” (Lev 25:21).


After the slaying of his brother, “Absalom fled and went to

Geshur, he stayed there three years” (2 Sam 13:38).

During David’s reign a three-year famine caused the king to

seek “the face of the LORD” (2 Sam 21:1).

David’s adversary Shimei (2 Sam 16:5-14) was spared by

Solomon on condition that he was permanently confined to

the city of Jerusalem (1 Kgs 2:36-38).

Shimei obeyed this restriction for three years, but when two

of his slaves fled from him, he left the city to retrieve them, an

action that was to cost him his life (vv. 39-46).

Every three years King Solomon’s trading fleet returned

“carrying gold, silver and ivory, and apes and baboons” (1

Kgs 10:22).

Appropriately, the third year is also singled out for special

mention. The third year was special in that it was the “year of

the tithe” (Deut 14:28; cf. Amos 4:4), which was to be

collected for the needs of the Levites and the underprivileged

members of society such as the alien, the widow, and the

poor (Deut 26:12).

During the reign of King Jehoshaphat of Judah because “his

heart was devoted to the ways of the LORD,” in his third year

of reign he sent officials to “teach in the towns of Judah” (2

Chron 17:6-7). \

The third year was also the year that Jehoshaphat went to

meet King Ahab of Israel with regard to their joining forces in

an effort to regain Ramoth Gilead from the Arameans (1 Kgs

22:1-5).

Still later, during the Assyrian siege of Jerusalem God gave

to Hezekiah a sign of deliverance and renewed activity (2

Kgs 19:29; cf. Isa 37:30).

“For the third year … there was a direct divine command:

‘Sow and reap, plant vineyards and eat fruit.’ Here was direct

assurance that the people might resume normal agricultural

activities with full expectation of eating the fruits of their labor.

When in the harvest of the third year the people ate in


abundance, they would know assuredly that God had been in

the entire crisis.”

Isaiah prophesied that “within three years … Moab’s

splendor and all her many people will be despised, and her

survivors will be very few and feeble” (Isa 16:14).

Isaiah himself went “stripped and barefoot for three years, as

a sign and portent against Egypt and Cush” (Isa 20:3).

Daniel and his three friends were schooled for three years

with regard to the language and literature of the Babylonians

(Dan 1:3-5).

It figures in Jesus’ parable of the unproductive fig tree (Luke

13:7).

The Apostle Paul spent three years in Arabia apparently to

commune with the Lord and receive instruction from him

before going to acquaint himself with Peter (Gal 1:18).

The Three

Three sons of Adam are mentioned by name: Abel, Cain,

Seth (Gen 4:1-2,25).

All men are descended from the 3 sons of Noah: Shem, Ham,

Japheth (Gen 9:18-19).

There were 3 patriarchs: Abraham, Isaac, Jacob/Israel.

Three major feasts were to be celebrated:

The Feast Of Unleavened Bread (Passover),

The Feast Of Weeks (Harvest) (Penecost),

The Feast Of Ingathering (Tabernacles) (Ex

23:14-16)(Ex 34:18-23)(Deut 16:16).

Israelite men were required to appear before the Lord three

times in a year: “Three times a year all your men must

appear before the LORD your God at the place he will


choose: at the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Feast of

Weeks and the Feast of Tabernacles” (Deut 16:16).

Three items were contained in

the Ark Of The Covenant:

A pot of manna,

Aaron's rod that had

budded, and

The two tablets contained

the 10 Commandments

(Heb 9:4)(Ex 16:32-34)(Ex

25:16)(Num 17:4-10).


Both the Tabernacle and Temple were divided into 3

sections:

The Outer Court,

the Holy Place, and

the Holy Of Holies (Ex 26:33)(Ex 27:9).

Three times is the blessing given in Numbers 6:24--26

• "The LORD bless thee and keep thee;

• The LORD make His face shine upon

thee; and be gracious unto thee;

• The LORD lift up His countenance upon

thee, and give thee peace".


THREE THINGS MOSES ASKED OF GOD

2:1,3)(Acts 7:20)(Heb 11:23).

Three men appeared to Abraham (2 angels and what is

believed to be a pre-incarnate appearance of Jesus) (Gen

Ch. 18).

The New Jerusalem will be surrounded by a great wall with 3

gates on each of 4 sides (Rev 21:13).

God brought a famine for 3 years while David was king (2

Sam 21:1).

God showed Peter in a vision 3 times that Gentiles would

now be accepted (Acts 10:9-16).

Upon entering the Promised Land, if a fruit tree was planted,

it's fruit was considered unclean for 3 years (Lev 19:23).

There are three archangels mentioned in the Bible by name

as Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.


3 in the Life of Jesus

The Magi that visited Jesus Child, offering the three presents:

the gold, the frankincense and the myrrh. (Mt 2,11)


Jesus went missing from His parents for 3 days when He

was 12 years old (Lk 2:41-50).

Jesus was 30 years old when he started his public ministry.

Jesus was 33 years old when he died on the cross.

Jesus was tempted 3 times in the wilderness by Satan (Mt

4:1-11)(Lk 4:1-13).

The public ministry of Jesus-Christ lasted 3 years.

Jesus had an inner circle of 3 disciples: Peter, James, and

John (Mt 17:1)(Mk 9:2)(Lk 9:28)(Mk 5:37)(Lk 8:51)(Mt

23:37)(Mk 14:33).

Peter, James, and John were the three disciples with Jesus

in the Garden of Gethsemane. These were those whof

formed the inner circle.

The disciples failed to stay awake three times in the Garden

of Gethsemane.

Peter denied Jesus three times. Consquently in John 21

when Jesus reinstates Peter, he asks him 3 times if Peter

loves him.

IMark 15:25. It was the third hour of the day when Jesus was

crucified.


There were three crosses on the mount of Golgotha.

The Holy Spirit’s anointing at Pentecost according to Acts

2:15 happened at the third hour of the day.

Jesus rose from dead on the third day.

were witnesses to his agony.

Three times in the Gospels Jesus resuscitates a dead boby:

Jairus’ daughter (Lk 8,54); the son of the widow of Nain

(Lk 7,14); and Lazarus (Jn 11,43).

By three times in Gospels the Father gives a testimony to his

Son:

during his Baptism on the edge of the Jordan (Mt 3,17);

on the Thabor during the Transfiguration (Mt 17,5); and

to the Temple during the last Passover,

In presence of the Gentiles

acknowledging Jesus (Jn 12,28).

Gethsemane (Mt 26:36-46)(Mk 14:32-42).

Jesus is: 1. The Way, 2. The Truth, 3. The Life (Jn 14:6).

By three times in his last speech to the apostles Jesus prays

in order that they become One like Him and the Father are

One. (Jn 17,11-23)

The three hours of darkness on all the earth, from midday to

three o'clock, when Jesus was nailed on the cross. (Mt

27,45)

By three times the apostle Peter renounces Jesus and by

three times also he affirms his love for Him. (Lk 22,56-65; Jn

21,15-19)

The triple visions of Peter. (Act 10,16)

"For there are three that bear record in heaven, the

Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these

three are one". 1st John 5:7

Three multitudes miraculously fed:—(1) 2 Kings 4:42, 43; (2)

Matt 15:34, 38; (3) Mark 6:38, 44.

Three times Abraham called the "Friend of God":—(1) 2

Chron 20:7; (2) Isa 41:8; (3) James 2:23.

Three times the word "Christian" is found in the New

Testament:—(1) Acts 11:26; (2) Acts 25:28; (3) 1 Peter 4:6.

Where two or three are gathered in Christ's name,

there is the truth and the will of God being done, and

Christ in their midst. That's the two or three witnesses

of God. That's the Church with Christ in the midst

(remember the two witnesses of revelation chapter

11?) There is the "definition" of the Church! Two or

three witnesses gathered together in the name of

Christ! The two is illustrating established truth, and the

three illustrating the purpose and will of God.


1/3: In the Book of Revelation is used sixteen times in

reference to a divine curse or punishment.

• and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green

grass was burnt up. (Rev 8:7)

• and the third part of the sea became blood (Rev 8:8)

• 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. (Rev 8:9)


One half of seven, 3½, is also a conspicuous

number in Revelation:

Wearing out the Saints for 3 ½ years.(Daniel 7:25)

Jesus Christ is killed in the middle of a week. The week

represents 7 years. The first 3 ½ years were fulfilled at Jesus

Christ's first coming. The remainder of the week shall be

fulfilled at Jesus Christ's second coming.(Daniel 9:27)

God’s holy people (the saints) shall be scattered because

they will be killed by the world power after a 3 ½ year

period.(Daniel 12:7)

The daily sacrifice shall be taken away and the abomination

of desolation set up shall be 1290 days. There is a 30 day

extension to the 1260 days. Create a timeline using Daniels

prophecy of days. After the 1290th day, there are 45 days of

Jehovah's wrath, or the vials. The result? Blessed is he that

comes to 1335th day. The 1335th day begins the thousand

years period. See study on the 1,000 years period.(Daniel

12:11-13)

The Holy City shall be tread on, or beaten down, by the

Gentiles 42 months (1260 days). And the two witnesses

prophecy during the same time, 1260 days. This could

correspond with Jesus Christ fulfilling the second half of the


covenant (remember he was caught off or killed after

preaching for 3 ½ years). (Revelation 11:1-3)

The woman going into the wilderness (all symbolic) receives

information for 3 ½ years. (Revelation 12:6,14)

The beast, or one world government power will speak

blasphemous things against Jehovah and His son, Jesus

Christ. The beast will have power for only 42 months, about

the same amount of time that the two witnesses (from

Revelation 11:1-3) are prophesying.(Revelation 13:5)


CHAPTER SIX

FOUR

Four is the value of the Hebrew letter

dalet: ‏.ד Dalet means door.

Four is the value of the Greek letter Delta.

Jesus said, “I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be

saved, and will go in and out and find pasture”. (John 10:9

NKJV)


“I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to

the Father except through Me” (John 14:6 NIV).

Bible numerology number 4 consists of two numbers - 3 and

1. 3+1 =4. Three evidently dentotes the Trinity who created

the universe. Hence the one added is the heavens and the

earth.

Thus

Fire, Earth, Water and Air are the four elements of the

universe. Four sides of the world – east, west, north,

south and four time divisions – morning, evening, noon

and midnight are also accompanied by number 4.

IN almost all 4 we wil be able to discern a 3+1 in the

following examples:


Year has 4 seasons: summer, autumn, spring and winter.

Square has 4 sides and moon has 4 main variations of

its phases. Ancient Greek medicine was based on man’s

four components of man- Yellow Bile, Black Bile, Phlegm

and blood.

Ezekiel 7:2 "Also, thou son of man, thus saith the

Lord God unto the land of Israel; an end, the end is

come upon the four corners of the earth."

Revelation 7:1 "And after these things I saw four

Angels standing on the FOUR corners of the earth,

holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind

should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on

any tree."

Again, four angels, four corners of the earth, four

winds of the earth. Universal judgment over the earth

everywhere, being held back by the angels of God.

The Earth, universally is kept from this "until" God

seals His servants in their foreheads. Revelation

20:8 "And shall go out to deceive the nations which

are in the four quarters of the earth, God and

magog, to gather them together to battle..."

Matthew 24:31 "And He shall send His angels with a

great sound of a Trumpet, and they shall gather

together His elect from the four winds, from one end

of heaven to another."

In other words, all the Elect (chosen) universally will

be gathered together from all parts. This symbolism is

seen consistently in scripture. We see the same

principle demonstrated in scriptures about the four

carpenters, the the four horns of the Altar, the four


Spirits of Heaven, the four beasts, etc., etc. They are

all illustrative of the universality of whatever is in view.

When Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead, it was

giving us a picture of the resurrection wherein we all

(believers) would be made alive.

John 11:17 "Then when Jesus came, he found that

he had lain in the grave four days

Year has 4 seasons: summer, autumn, spring and winter.

Square has 4 sides and moon has 4 main variations of

its phases. Abovementioned are the creations made by God

in the first 4 days and on the fifth and sixth day the finishing

of Earth and settling with life were made.

FOUR GOSPELS - FOUR BEHOLDS

MATHEW ; Behold your King (zech 9:9)

MARK: Behold your Servant (Isa 42:1)

LUKE : Behold the Man (Zech 6:12)

JOHN: Behold your God (isa 40:9)

Bible contains 4 main gospels: Matthew, Luke, John, and

Mark.

There are 4 gospel accounts of Jesus' life and ministry. Each

of these emphasizes a unique aspect of his sacrifice and

ministry. Matthew's focus is on Christ being the son of David

and a Lion King. Mark highlights the suffering servant aspect

of his ministry s an Ox. John proclaims Jesus is the One and

Only begotten Son of God as an Eagle. And Luke

showcases him as the Perfect Man.


Frontpage of Four Cospels a Comparitive Study by C.H.Weich

God’s throne is surrounded by 4 beasts

In Ezekiel's well-known 'wheels within wheel' vision (Ezekiel

1, 10) he sees four living creatures transporting a throne with

four sides and four wheels. Each of the living creatures has

four faces (the face of a man, lion, ox and eagle) and four

wings (1:6).

The square-shaped New Jerusalem has 4 equal sides


The breastplate of the high priests was also foursquare.

Number 4 appears in the stones with titles of twelve

tribes of Israel. These stones have four rows and three

stones within each row.


The Garden of Eden had a river which parted into the

headwaters of four other rivers.

These rivers were the Pison, Gihon, Hiddekel and the

Euphrates (Genesis 2:10 - 14).

In Genesis 10, "the generations of the sons of Noah" are

comprised in a four-fold description.

lands, tongues, families, nations (Verse 5, 20, 31)

THE FOUR GREAT PROPHETIC WORLD-POWERS

The first three wild beasts are named (lion, bear, leopard);

while the fourth is only described and not named (Dan


7:7,23). So in the image of Nebuchadnezzar's dream, three

are metals; one is a mixture of metal and mire!

FOUR CUPS OF PASSOVER

Exodus 6:6-7 Wherefore say unto the children of Israel, I

[am] the Lord, and

1. I will bring you out from under the burdens of the

Egyptians, and

2. I will rid you out of their bondage, and

3. I will redeem you with a stretched out arm, and

with great judgments: And

4. I will take you to me for a people, and I will be to

you a God: and ye shall know that I [am] the Lord

your God, which bringeth you out from under the

burdens of the Egyptians.

See Ezekiel 34:13-14 also

D: ENCAMPMENT ON FOUR SIDES OF THE

TABERNACLE

FOUR PRIESTLY ORDERS:

(1 Chron 23:6)

INNER FOUR SIDES of the Tent of meeting

+ Moses and Aaron and sons

+ Kohathites

+ Geshonites

+ Merari

OUTER FOUR SIDES :

12 Tribes 3 on each side under a leading flag

East Flag Lion under Judah, Issachar and Zabulum

South Flag Man under Reuben Simeon and Gad

West Flad Ox under Ephraim, Manasseh and Benjamin

North Flag Eagle under Dan, Asher and Naphthali


The brazen altar which displayed the Divine judgment is four

sided, and had four horns. So with the golden altar.

The camp was four-square.


These flags represent the four living creatures of the

ezekiels Vison that carried YHVH

In Judaism, the living beings are considered angels of fire,

who hold up the throne of God and the earth itself.They are

ranked first in Maimonides' Jewish angelic hierarchy. They

form the four order of creation in heaven and earth.

In Christianity, the four living creatures are Cherubim. A

prominent early interpretation, variously modified by different

interpreters, has been to equate the four creatures as a

tetramorph of the Four Evangelists. Throughout church

history, the most common interpretation (first laid out by

Victorinus), but not the original or the only, is that the lion


epresents Mark, the calf Luke, the man Matthew, and the

eagle John. Various other associations are in existence.

Fourfold description of Manna (Exo 16:14,31)

+ three referring appearance = small, white, round

+ one to taste = sweet.

Four unclean animals

"And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying

to them, Speak to the children of Israel, saying,

These are the beasts which you shall eat among all the

beasts that are on the earth. Whatsoever parts the hoof, and

is clovenfooted, and chews the cud, among the beasts, that

shall you eat.

Nevertheless these shall you not eat of them that chew the

cud, or of them that divide the hoof:

as the camel, because he chews the cud, but divides

not the hoof;


And the coney, because he chews the cud, but divides

not the hoof;

And the hare, because he chews the cud, but divides

not the hoof;

And the swine, though he divide the hoof,

and be clovenfooted, yet he chews not the

cud; he is unclean to you " (Lev.11:1-7 KJV).

+ three chewed the cud, but did not divide the hoof =

camel, hare, and coney.

+ one divided the hoof, but did not chew the cud=the

swine.

Four houses were built by Solomon

+ three were for himself,—his own house (1 Kings 7:1), the

house of the forest of Lebanon (v 2), the house for

Pharaoh's daughter (v 8);

+ one was the House of the LORD (1 Kings 6:37).

God's four sore judgments in the earth (Eze

14:21):


+ three are inanimate (the sword, famine, and pestilence);

+ one is animate (the noisome beast).

Four kinds of divine destroyers In Jeremiah 15:3,

+three are animate (dogs, fowls, and beasts),

+ one is inanimate (the sword).

FOURS OF PERSONS

• Pashur (Jer 20:3) [in judgment]

Jeremiah said to him,

"Pashhur is not the name the LORD has called you, but rather

Magor-missabib.(fear on every side,)


FOUR PROPHETESSES OF THE OLD

TESTAMENT:—

• Miriam (Exo 15:20)

• Deborah (Judg 4:4)

• Huldah (2 Kings 22:14)

• Noadiah (Neh 6:14)

The Rabbis taught in Megillah (14a), one of the tractates of

the Talmud, “Our Rabbis taught: Forty-eight prophets and

seven prophetesses prophesied to Israel. . . . ‘

Seven prophetesses’. Who were these? –

Sarah, Gen 11:29 - 23:20

Miriam, Ex 15:20-21; Num 12:1-12:15, 20”1

Deborah, Jud. 4:1-5:31

Hannah, 1 Sam 11:1 -25:42

Abigail, 1 Sam 25:1 - 25:42

Huldah 2 Kings 22:14-20

Esther. (Book of Esther)

But Sarah, Hannah, Abigail, and Esther are never called

prophetesses in the Hebrew Bible.

THE FOUR "CHILDREN" OF THE BOOK

• Cyrus (6:28, 10:1) "the Persian"

The prophecy of Zechariah which has special reference to

the earth

• In Chapter 1 we have the four horns or Gentile

powers, and the four carpenters to fray them.

• In chapter 4 we have the four chariots with horses of

four colours, signifying the spirits of the heavens acting for

God in the midst of the four Gentile powers.

THE FOUR-FOLD WITNESS

WISDOM (JOB 28:7,8)

• The fowl.

• The vulture's eye.

• The lion's whelps.

• The fierce lion.

FOUR THINGS "LITTLE AND

WISE"

(PROV 30:24-28):—

• Rahab (Ruth 4:20; Matt 1:5)

• Ruth (Ruth 4:13,14; Matt 1:5)

• Wife of Uriah (2 Sam 12:24; Matt 1:6)

FOUR NAMES OF SATAN

(REV. 20:2)


(JOHN 8:44)

THE SPHERE OF SUFFERING IS

FOUR-FOLD

(IN 2 COR. 4:8, 9)

• Troubled, but not distressed.

• Perplexed, but not in despair.

• Persecuted, but not forsaken.

• Cast down, but not destroyed.


Four kinds of flesh in 1 Corinthians 15:39,

+ three are animals (beasts, birds, and fishes);

+ one is human (man).


The four glories of 1 Corinthians 15:40, 41: three are

celestial and are detailed (the sun, moon, and stars); while

one is not detailed and is terrestrial.


The body is sown and raised (1 Cor 15:42-44) in three ways

that relate to corruptibility:

In the parable of the sower (Matt 13) the kinds of soil are

four; but three are characterised as being all alike in contrast

to the one (viz., the wayside, the stony ground, and the

thorns). These are all unprepared! while the one is good

because it is prepared!


In the Lost Son's welcome (Luke 15), three things were

material (the robe, the ring, and the shoes); while one was

moral (the kiss).

"The Seventy" went forth with a four-fold prohibition (Luke

10:4), of which three related to matters (carry no purse, no

scrip, no shoes); while one related to action ("salute no man

by the way").

God's four-fold witness in the earth (Heb 2:4): three are

impersonal (signs, wonders, and miracles), and one

personal (the gifts of the Holy Ghost).

After Jesus was nailed and hung on a cross, Roman soldiers

divided up his clothes into four parts (one for each soldier -

John 19:23).


CHAPTER SEVEN

FIVE


Number 5 in Hebrew is denoted by Heh - a picture of the

window through which we can see the future and the other

side from where you are.


In Greek it is Epsilon


The Meaning of Numbers: The

Number 5

The number 5 symbolizes God's grace, goodness and favor

toward humans and is mentioned 318 times in Scripture.

Five is the number of grace, and multiplied by itself, which is

25, is 'grace upon grace' (John 1:16).


The Ten Commandments contains two sets of 5

commandments.

The first five commandments are related to our treatment

and relationship with God,

and the last five concern our relationship with others

humans.

The number 5 in Biblical numerology symbolizes the creation

of God, as the person has five fingers, five toes and five

senses.


THE FIVE SACRIFICES OF LEVITICUS

There are five primary types of offerings God commanded

Israel to bring to him. They are the Burnt Offering (Leviticus 1;

8:18 - 21; 16:24), Sin (Leviticus 4; 16:3 - 22), Trespass

(Leviticus 5:14 - 19; 6:1 - 7; 7:1 - 6), Grain (Leviticus 2) and

Peace Offering (Leviticus 3; 7:11- 34).


There were five sacrifices portrayed in Gen. 15:9 by which

the promise to Abraham was secured: a heifer, a goat, a ram,

a dove, and a pigeon. These typified Christ’s sacrifice on the

cross to secure the promises for mankind.


Appearances of the number five

http://www.biblestudy.org

The Book of Psalms is divided into five major sections.

Section 1 (Psalm 1 to 41) refers to the Passover, Israel's

beginning, and the start of the God's plan of salvation that

centers around Christ.

Section 2 (42 to 72) sings about a unified Israel in the land

and pictures the creation of the New Testament Church.

Section 3 (73 to 89) bemoans the destruction of both God's

Temple and Jerusalem. This section also hints at prophecies

regarding the End Time Great Tribulation.

Section 4 (90 to 106) rejoices over the 1,000 reign of Jesus

and shows Israel gathered again.

Section 5 (107 to 150) pictures a time when Judah

(representing all Israel) shall again be delivered.

NUMBER 5 SEEN IN GOD'S TABERNACLE

The 'tabernacle in the wilderness' profoundly reflects God's

grace in its use of the number 5. This tabernacle, whose

design was given directly by God,

contained five curtains (Exodus 26:3),

five bars (Exodus 26:26 - 27),

five pillars and

five sockets (Exodus 26:37)

and an altar made of wood that was five cubits long and five

cubits wide (Exodus 27:1).


The height of the court within the tabernacle was five cubits

(Exodus 27:18).

THE HOLY ANOINTING OIL (Exo 30:23-25)

The Holy anointing oil (Exodus 30:23 - 25), the ingredients of

which were given directly by God, was used to consecrate

the furniture of the tabernacle. It was comprised of five parts,

for it was a revelation of pure grace. The proportion of spices

used in making the oil were a multiple of five, which then had

a Hin of olive oil added to it.

Pure Myrrh, 500 shekels

500 = 5X100

Sweet cinnamon, 250 shekels 250 = 5 x 50

Sweet calamus, 250 shekels

250 = 5x50

Cassia, 500 shekels

500 = 5 x

100

Olive oil, 1 hin


5 REVEALS THE GRACE OF GOD

Gen 43:34 Benjamin received 5 times more than his

brothers

Gen 45:22 Benjamin received 5 changes of clothing from

Joseph

Num 18:16 Redemption price was 5 shekels of silver

Matt 14:17 5 loaves of bread fed 5000

Matt 25:15 The good steward received 5 talents and

gained 5 more.

There are five books in the Bible that contain only one

chapter

2John, 3John, Philemon, Jude and Obadiah.

Moses wrote five books.

Dream Statue of King Nebuchadnezzaar

Babylon's King Nebuchadnezzar was given, by God, a

dream where he saw a giant statue of a man. This statue,

according to the interpretation of Daniel,

represented 5 periods of world-ruling empires.

The statue's head of gold represented Babylon

(Daniel 2:32, 38)

The Chest and Arms of Silver symbolized the Persian

Empire (Daniel 2:32, 39)

The Belly and Thighs of Bronze (brass) represented

the Macedonian Empire under Alexander the Great

The Two Legs of Iron symbolized Rome's Empire

(Daniel 2:33, 40 - 43)


The Ten Toes of Iron mixed with Clay are the

successors to the Roman Empire (Daniel 2:41 - 44)

The five wounds of Jesus on the cross.

The five wounds comprised:

one through each hand or wrist,

one through each foot,

and one to the chest.

The five parts of the clothing remaining of Jesus during his

crucifixion after the soldiers had made four parts of his dress,

plus his tunic which they did not tear. (Jn 19,23)

Saint Paul declares that by five times he received the 39

lashes from the Jews. (2 Co 11,24)

The five unwise and five wise virgins of the parable of Jesus.

(Mt 25,1)


The five porticos of the pool of Bethesda. (Jn 5,2)

The five pebbles which made it possible to small king David

to kill the giant Goliath.

The five kinds of animals that God asked Abraham to

present to him to conclude with him an alliance: a heifer of

three years old, a goat of three years old, a ram of three

years old, a turtledove and a young dove. (Gn 12, 5-18)

The five books of the Torah (the Law) according to the

Judaism that corresponds to the number of the first books of

the Bible.

The book of the Lamentations of Jeremiah contains also five

chapters.


CHAPTER EIGHT

SIX


Hebrew letter Vau stand for 6: The Greek

Letter Digama stood for 6

Digamma, waw, or wau (uppercase: Ϝ,

lowercase: ϝ, numeral: ϛ) is an archaic letter of

the Greek alphabet. It originally stood for the

sound /w/ but it has principally remained in use

as a Greek numeral for 6. Whereas it was

originally called waw or wau, its most common

appellation in classical Greek is digamma; as

a numeral, it was called episēmon during

the Byzantine era and is now known as

stigma after the Byzantine ligature combining

σ-τ as ϛ

To understand the number six, we need to

understand the vav - ‏,ו which is the Hebrew letter

representing six. The sixth letter of the alef-beit is the

vav. The vav is shaped like a hook ‏.(ו)‏ or a peg. A

hook is something that holds two things together. This

property of the letter vav, in its Hebrew usage, is

referred to as the vav of connection. It is normally

translated as and which is used to hook heavens and

earth together.

Vav

is a Nail or peg - a connector

Vav is a connecting letter. At the beginning of a word

it usually means "and".

The first Vav is in Gen 1:1. It is the 1st letter of the 6th

word, and connects heaven and earth.

Numeric value = 6

This is the number of "man"


It also indicates Jesus ─ the Son of Man.

Jesus connects heaven and earth.

Jesus connects the spiritual and the material.

Jesus connects the unseen world with what we see

around us

Number 6 is A Perfect Number

The Pythagoreans acknowledged number 6 to be the

first perfect number.

In mathematics a perfect number is when all the

numbers divisors (excluding the number itself) are

added, the sum equals the number itself. 1+2+3=6

In addition when including the number itself and

dividing by two the result is the number itself.

(1+2+3+6)/2 = 6

Perfect numbers are rare. The Ancient Greeks

recognized four perfect numbers: 6 – 28 – 496 –

8,128. Throughout history perfect numbers have


fascinated mathematicians and more perfect numbers

have been discovered.

“Six is a number perfect in itself, not

because God created all things in six days;

rather, the convert is true God created all

things in six days because the number is

perfect.” Saint Augustine (The City of

God)

Six is the number of man, for man was created on the sixth

day (Gen. 1:24-31). Man was also to labor for six days before

entering into the Sabbath rest (Ex. 20:8-11), and the Hebrew

slave was to serve for six years (Ex. 21:2).

Again the emphasis of the working for the length of

the number "six".

The Earth and all things were created in 6 days (Gen

1:31-2:2)(Ex 20:11)(Ex 31:17).


Genesis1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and

[vav] the earth.

The connectivity of six and the vav is illustrated in the design

of an alef - ‏.א The alef is actually made up of three different

letters: the letter yud - י above; a yud - י below; and a

diagonal vav – ‏,ו or line suspended in between. The upper

yod represents the upper world and the lower yod

represents the lower world. The vav connects these two

worlds.

This vav, the first letter of the sixth word, serves to join

spiritual and physical, heaven and the earth, in creation. This

teaches us a very significant lesson regarding the meaning

of six.

The world was created in six days, the six days of creation.

The first word in the Torah is Bereshit (In the beginning)

which itself is composed of six letters .- ‏.בראשית Furthermore

the Torah clearly states: God created six days. There are

also six alefs – ‏,א in the first verse of the Torah. The first

letter vav in the Torah is found at the beginning of the sixth

word (v’et). So creation is connected to the number six.

Creation was completed in six days

"And God saw everything that He had made, and

behold, it was very good. And the evening and the

morning were the sixth day.


The Number of Man

The number six is symbolic of man.

Man was created on the sixth day.

Men are appointed to work for six days and after six days of

labor, they are to rest on the seventh day.

The sixth commandment prohibits the murder of man.

666 - the triple 6 represents the very best human system

of governance that mankind can produce without God under

human wisdom and logic or Yetser Hara and Yetser Hatov.


The number 666 relates to the carbon atom, and man.

Carbon-12; one of 5 elements in the human DNA is

composed of 6 protons, 6 electrons and 6 neutrons, which

equates to 666. Carbon-12 is the most abundant of the two

stable isotopes of the element carbon, accounting for

98.89% of carbon. Carbon forms the major part of human

body and DNA encodes life. Oxygen is the life giving

component.

Carbon (18%) is synonymous with life. Its central role is due

to the fact that it has four bonding sites that allow for the

building of long, complex chains of molecules. Moreover,

carbon bonds can be formed and broken with a modest

amount of energy, allowing for the dynamic organic

chemistry that goes on in our cells.

Lucifer is another word for phosphorus. The Latin word

corresponding to Greek Phosphorus is

“Lucifer.” Phosphorus (Greek Φωσφόρος Phōsphoros), a

name meaning “Light-Bringer”, is the Morning Star. When

phosphorus is combined with the other elements and carbon,

it forms our very DNA.


Six as period of labor


Exodus 20:9-11

"Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord Thy

God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son,

nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant,

nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

for in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the

sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh

day: wherefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and

hallowed it."

Six signified the completion of work days. i.e., in six

days, work was complete.

Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all

the host of them.

Man was created on the 6th day (Gen 1:26,31).

God flooded the whole world when Noah was six hundred

years old (Gen 7:6,11).

20:13)(Deut 5:17).

A Hebrew slave was only to work 6 years and then be

released (Ex 21:2)(Deut 15:12.18)(Jer 34:14).

Jeremiah 34:13-14


Hebrew slaves were released at the end of six

years

"...I made a covenant with your fathers in the day that

I brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, out of the

house of bondmen, saying, at the end of seven

years let ye go every man his brother an Hebrew,

which hath been sold unto thee; and when he hath

served thee six years, thou shalt let him go free

from thee..."

The land receives rest at the end of six years.

Exodus 23:10 "And six years thou shalt sow thy

land, and shalt gather in the fruits thereof: But the

seventh year thou shalt let it rest and lie still; that the

poor and the needy shall eat."

God commanded the Israelites to give their land a Sabbath

rest after 6 years of farming it (Ex 23:10-11)(Lev 25:1-7).

The glory of the Lord covered Mt. Sinai for 6 days (Ex 24:16).


The gold lampstand in the Tabernacle (which signified Jesus)

had 6 branches coming out of its sides (Ex 25:32-35)(Ex

37:17-21).

Two onyx stones, each with 6 names of the sons of Israel

were put on the ephod of the High Priest (Ex 28:9-12).

There were 6 "cities of refuge" in the land of the Levites

(Num 35:6,13,15).

The Walls of Jericho and the Number Six

We read in Joshua, naturally in chapter six, that God gave

Joshua and Israel this command regading the conquest of

the city of Jericho.;

“You shall march around the city, all the men of war

circling the city once. You shall do so for six days.

Also seven priests shall carry seven trumpets of rams’

horns before the ark; then on the seventh day you shall

march around the city seven times, and the priests shall

blow the trumpets. It shall be that when they make a long

blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of

the trumpet, all the people shall shout with a great shout; and

the wall of the city will fall down flat, and the people will go up

every man straight ahead” (Joshua 6:3-5).

Jephthah judged Israel 6 years (Judg 12:7).

When the Ark was being brought to Jerusalem, after the

Levites took 6 steps, David sacrificed sheep and oxen (2

Sam 6:13).

There was a giant that had 6 fingers on each hand and 6

toes on each foot (2 Sam 21:20).

Solomon's throne had 6 steps (1 Kin 10:19)(2 Chr 9:18).

Joab remained in Edom 6 months until he had killed every

male (1 Kin 11:16).


Evil Queen Athaliah's reign was 6 years (2 Kin 11:3)(2 Chr

22:12).

Boaz gave Ruth 6 ephahs of barley (Ruth 3:15,17).

The Seraphim angels have 6 wings (Isa 6:2)(Rev 4:8 ?).

mountain for the Transfiguration (Mt 17:1)(Mk 9:2).

In the 6th month of Elizabeth's pregnancy, the angel Gabriel

appeared to Mary to announce she would give birth to Jesus

(Lk 1:26:36).

In Jesus' first miracle, He changed 6 waterpots into wine (Jn

2:6-10).

Mary anointed Jesus' feet 6 days before Passover (Jn

12:1-3).

At about the 6th hour, Pilate said to the Jews, "Behold your

king" (Jn 19:14).

When Peter received his vision from God opening the door to

the Gentiles, it was the 6th hour (Acts 10:9).

The number of the Antichrist (or beast) is 666 (Rev

13:17-18).

Jephthah (in the East) served six years as a Judge of Israel

(Judges 12:7).

The Bible mentions six earthquakes (Exodus 19:18, 1Kings

19:11, Amos 1:1, Matthew 27:54, 28:2, Acts 16:26).

Jesus was accused six times of being demon possessed

(Mark 3:22, John 7:20, 8:48, 8:52, 10:20 and Luke 11:15).

On the sixth day of the week, at the sixth hour, Jesus

was nailed to the cross. Jesus bought our redemption with

His sacrifice. He was the perfect man, brother of Man, the

second Adam

Six people,declared that Jesus was innocent of all the

charges leveled against him.

Roman Prefect of Judea Pontius Pilate (Luke 23:14),

Herod (Luke 23:15),

Judas Iscariot (after the devil left him - Matthew 27:3),

Pontius Pilate's wife (Matthew 27:19),


one of the thieves on the cross near Christ's (Luke 23:41)

and

the Roman Centurion who was at the crucifixion (Luke

23:47).

Six is either 4 plus 2, i.e., man's world (4) with

man's enmity to God (2) brought in: or it is 5

plus 1, the grace of God made of none effect

by man's addition to it, or perversion, or

corruption of it: or it is 7 minus 1, i.e., man's

coming short of spiritual perfection. In any

case, therefore, it has to do with man; it is the

number of imperfection; the human number;

the number of MAN as destitute of God,

without God, without Christ.

Six represents connection, exemplified by the angels in

Isaiah’s vision, who had six wings each

Isaiah 6:1-3 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the

Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train

filled the temple. 2 Above it stood the seraphims: each one

had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain

he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly. 3 And one

cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is HaShem of


hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.

SIX ORDERS OF THE MISHNA.

Six also represents the six orders of the Mishna. Through

learning Torah, one connects with HaShem. The six orders

are

Zeraim ("Seeds"), dealing with prayer and blessings, tithes

and agricultural laws.

Moed ("Festival"), pertaining to the laws of the Sabbath and

the Festivals.

Nashim ("Women"), concerning marriage and divorce,

some forms of oaths and the laws of the nazirite.

Nezikin ("Damages"), dealing with civil and criminal law, the

functioning of the courts and oaths.

Kodashim ("Holy things"), regarding sacrificial rites, the

Temple, and the dietary laws.

Tohorot ("Purities"), pertaining to the laws of purity and

impurity, including the impurity of the dead, the laws of rituals

Six and The House of David

Six is a number that is uniquely associated

with the Jewish people, in the star of David

(Magen David – The Shield of David), a six pointed star:

An existentialist commentary on the Star of David was

advanced by the philosopher Franz Rosenzweig in the Star

of Redemption, which he wrote on postcards during World

War I. Rosenzweig described two interlocking triangles —

the corners of one representing creation, revelation, and

redemption; the corners of the other representing Man, the

World and God.


There seems to be an intimate connection between the

number six and the house of David.

Thus a vav was added to Nahshon, hinting that six

righteous men would come forth from his tribe, each of

whom was blessed with six virtues.

Thus of David it is written, That is skilful in playing, and a

mighty man of valor, and a man of war, and prudent in affairs,

and a comely person, and the Lord is with him (I Sam. XVI,

18).

Of Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah it is written, Youths in

whom was no blemish, but fair to look on, and skilful in all

wisdom, and skilful in knowledge, and discerning in thought,

and such as had ability to stand in the king's palace (Dan. I,

4).

Of Hezekiah too six virtues are recorded: And his name is

called, Wonderful, Counselor, Prince, Mighty, Everlasting

father, Prince of peace (Isa. IX, 5).4 Of Daniel it is written,

Forasmuch as a surpassing spirit, and knowledge, and

understanding, interpreting of dreams, and declaring of

riddles, and loosing of knots, were found in the same Daniel

(Dan. V, 12). Finally, of the royal Messiah it is written, And

the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom

and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit

of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord (Isa. XI, 2)

Midrash Rabbah - Numbers XIII:11 Another reason why

‘attudim’ is written in full and the other word with a

superfluous vav. It alludes to the six sons descended from

Nahshon who were possessed of six blessings. They are

the following: David, the Messiah, Daniel, Hananiah,

Mishael, and Azariah.

As we shall see, Ruth, as the progenitor of David, is also

intimately bound with six and it’s multiples.


Six In Space

We do know that the number six represents the physical

world. The Torah describes the creation of the universe

as a six part, six day, process.

The Maharal indicates that six: Connotes being one in the

sense of being whole and all encompassing, rather than

being part of something else. The concept is illustrated by

the six sides of an object (right, left, front, back, top, and

bottom) that fully encompasses it:

6 sided cube

Sefer Yetzira of Father Abraham describe the universe as

emanating in six directions: north, south, east, west, up,

down, from a central point. All physical space and all

physical objects have these six dimensions. Six represents

completion, because something that is surrounded on all six

sides: north, south, east, west, above and below, is

complete.


6 AS IMPERFETION IN MAN


Both Hebrew and Christian sources believe six indicates

"imperfection," "man", or "evil." or Man without the Spiritual

connection of the Seven. For Christianity, this occurs

preeminently in the Book of Revelation. Some Christians

believe that 666 is the Number of the Beast. 666 is triple

attempt to be perfect by man or creation of its own effort. The

significance of three 6s shows eternal imperfection of Lucifer.

In the historical context of history of the period of Revelation

evidently Nero the persecutor of Christian was ponted to as

666. But its extension to later history is a projection.

There are other referrences to 6, 60, 666 in the Bible all

of them indicates trend in gold, money, and also idolatory

trends:

Solomon's wealth included an annual income of 666

talents of gold (1 Kings 10.14)

When a remnant returned from captivity to Jerusalem,

they included 666 from the people of Adonikam (Ezra

2.13). Adonikam was a noble sent from Babylon to

rebuild the Temple - a false priest given to idolatry.

The number 666 is strongly inferred in

Nebuchadnezzar's image of gold (Dan 3).


Its dimensions were 60 cubits high and 6 cubits wide,

and when the people heard the sound of 6 instruments

(Dan 3.5 KJV, NASB) they had to fall down and worship

the image. Those who did not were to be killed. So in

Nebuchadnezzar's image we see 666 is associated with

gold, idolatry and enforced worship on pain of death.

Finally, the world in its current state will exist for six

thousand years:

Sanhedrin 97a The Tanna debe Eliyyahu teaches:

The world is to exist six thousand years.

In the first two thousand there was desolation;

two thousand years the Torah flourished;

and the next two thousand years is the Messianic era,

but through our many iniquities all these years have been

lost.

The Talmud, the Midrash, and the Kabbalistic work, the

Zohar, state that the 'deadline' by which the Messiah must

appear is 6,000 years from creation. According to tradition,

the Hebrew calendar started at the time of Creation, placed

at 3761 BC.

The current (2016/2017) Hebrew year is 5777.

According to classical Jewish sources, the Hebrew year

6000

(from nightfall of September 30, 2239 until nightfall of

September 17, 2240 on the Gregorian calendar)

marks the latest time for the initiation of the Messianic Age.


In the Midrash in Pirke De-Rabbi Eliezer comments:

Six eons for going in and coming out, for war

and peace. The seventh eon is entirely

Shabbat and rest for life everlasting.

Kaballah considers every 1000 years from creation as a

day which will end up in the seventh day Sabath during

the seventh 1000 years when the Kindom will be

re-established as the following table shows

Kabbalah

The Zohar states:


In the 600th year of the sixth thousand, the gates of

wisdom on high and the wellsprings of lower wisdom

will be opened. This will prepare the world to enter the

seventh thousand, just as man prepares himself

toward sunset on Friday for the Sabbath.

The Zohar explains further:

The redemption of Israel will come about through the

mystic force of the letter “Vav” [which has the

numerical value of six], namely, in the sixth

millennium…. Happy are those who will be left alive at

the end of the sixth millennium to enter the Shabbat,

which is the seventh millennium; for that is a day set

apart for the Holy One on which to effect the union of

new souls with old souls in the world (Zohar, Vayera

119a).

The tradition teaches that the seventh day of the week, the

Sabbath day of rest, corresponds to the seventh millennium,

the age of universal 'rest' - the Messianic Era.

The belief that the seventh millennium will correspond to the

Messianic Age is founded upon a universalized application of

the concept of Shabbat—the 7th day of the week—the

sanctified 'day of rest'.

THE WHOLE ARMOR OF GOD

(Ephesians 6:10-12) Finally, my brethren, be strong in the

Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor

of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the

devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but

against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of

the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of

wickedness in the heavenly places.


6 The above passage describes six manifestations of

Satan's influence over man: |

"the devil's schemes,"

"flesh and blood,"

"rulers,"

"authorities,"

"powers of this dark world," and

"spiritual forces of evil."

3 It also contains three admonitions

"be strong,"

"put on," and

"take your stand".

6+3 = 9 If you add three (Gimel, "important ideas") to six

(Waw, "man in his sinful nature"),

you get nine (Teth, "new life").


CHAPTER NINE

SEVEN

Greek Zeta

“Zayin is the Crowned Man (Jesus) equipped with the

sword of the Holy Spirit.

Since -‘av represents man and Zayin is the crowned -‘av

(i.e., the Crowned Man), we can


also see that the Zayin represents Jesus the Messiah, the

true King of the Jews. And

since Zayin also represents a sword, we see the Man Jesus

equipped with the sword of

the Holy Spirit.”

Pictogram: Sceptre (a staff − an emblem of royalty, a

symbol of sovereign power)

“Zayin is a Picture of Jesus the Messiah

Since Zayin represents the crowned Man, we would expect

it to reveal other truth about

Jesus as the King of the Jews. JESUS − the King of kings.

Indeed, since Zag-'in's sword represents our Protector, as

Jesus is the "Lion of the tribe of Judah"; and since Zayin

also represents nourishment

life, Jesus is here depicted as the Shepherd who feeds His

sheep.”

A major Hebrew word for making an oath or swearing,

shava' , was closely related to the word seven , sheva' . The

original meaning of “swear an oath” may have been “to

declare seven times” or “to bind oneself by seven things.”

Used 735 times (54 times in the book of Revelation alone),

the number 7 is the foundation of God's word. If we include

with this count how many times 'sevenfold' and 'seventh' is

used, our total jumps to 860 references.

Seven is the number of completeness and perfection (both

physical and spiritual). It derives much of its meaning from

being tied directly to God's creation of all things. According to

Jewish tradition, the creation of Adam occurred on October

7th, 3761 B.C. (or the first day of Tishri, which is the seventh

month on the Hebrew calendar). The word 'created' is used 7

times describing God's creative work (Genesis 1:1, 21, 27


three times; 2:3; 2:4). There are 7 days in a week and God's

Sabbath is on the 7th day.

The Bible, as a whole, was originally divided into 7 major

divisions.

They are

1) the Law; 2) the Prophets; 3) the Writings, or Psalms; 4)

the Gospels and Acts;

5) the General Epistles; 6) the Epistles of Paul; and 7) the

book of Revelation.

The total number of originally inspired books was

forty-nine, or 7 x 7, demonstrating the absolute perfection of

the Word of God.

Thus, right at the start of the Bible, the number 7 is identified

with something being “finished” or “complete.”

From then on, that association continues, as 7 is often found

in contexts involving completeness or divine perfection.

So we see the command for animals to be at least seven

days old before being used for sacrifice (Exodus 22:30),

the command for leprous Naaman to bathe in the Jordan

River seven times to effect complete cleansing (2 Kings

5:10),

and the command for Joshua to march around Jericho for

seven days (and on the seventh day to make seven circuits)

and for seven priests blow seven trumpets outside the city

walls (Joshua 6:3–4). In these instances, 7

signifiescompletion of some kind: a divine mandate is fulfilled.

Interestingly, man was created on the sixth day of creation.

In some passages of the Bible, the number 6 is associated

with mankind.

In Revelation “the number of the beast” is called “the

number of a man. That number is 666” (Revelation 13:18).

If God’s number is 7, then man’s is 6.


Six always falls short of seven, just like “all have sinned and

fall short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23). Man is not God,

just as 6 is not 7.

Series of seven things crop up often in the Bible.

Seven pairs of each clean animal on the ark (Genesis 7:2);

Seven stems on the tabernacle’s lampstand (Exodus 25:37);


seven qualities of the Messiah in Isaiah 11:2;

SEVEN SPIRITS

Isaiah 11:2

The Spirit of the LORD will rest on him—

the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding,

the Spirit of counsel and of might,

the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the LORD—

SEVEN MEN IN THE OLD TESTAMENT WHO

ARE MEN OF GOD.

They are

Moses (Joshua 14:6),

David (2Chronicles 8:14),

Samuel (1Samuel 9:6, 14),

Shemaiah (1Kings 12:22),

Elijah (1Kings 17:18),

Elisha (2Kings 5:8) and I

Gdaliah (Jeremiah 35:4).

SEVEN PATRIARCHS WITH WHOM GOD MADE

HIS COVENANTS

(1) Abraham (Gen. xv. 18),

(2) Isaac (ib. xvii. 19),

(3) Jacob (Lev. xxvi. 42),

(4) Moses (Gen. xxxiv. 27),

(5) Aaron (Num. xviii. 19),

(6) Phinehas (ib. xxv. 12), and

(7) David (Ps. lxxxix. 3).

The Patriarchs are also among seven who, in their

sepulchers, were not touched by worms or rot (Derek Ereẓ

Zuṭa i. 7).

Among others, the Patriarchs were not dominated by the evil


spirit or by the angel of death.

The Patriarchs were given a taste of paradise by being

supplied with all the world's good.

Abraham was blessed "in all things" ("ba-kol"; Gen. xxiv. 1);

Isaac had eaten "of all" ("mi-kol"; ib. xxvii. 33); and Jacob

said "I have enough" ("kol"; ib. xxxiii. 11; B. B. 17a). These

words "kol," "mi-kol," "ba-kol" were inserted as a blessing in

the grace after meals.

They are buried in the cave of Machpelah.

The Mohammedans had built three minarets on this cave

above the supposed locations of the respective graves of

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob; but the center minaret, that of

Isaac, soon collapsed, and after it had been rebuilt it fell

again. Since then, tradition says, the Mohammedans have

abandoned the idea of replacing Isaac's minaret, as the

Jews claim that Isaac, being the holiest of the Patriarchs,

objects to a heathen tower over his grave.

SEVEN FESTIVALS in three groups in Leviticus 23

There are 7 annual Holy Days, beginning with Passover and

ending with the Last Great Day (the day after the Feast of

Tabernacles ends in the fall).

The cycle of the holy days is completed in 3 festival seasons

by the 7th month of the sacred calendar:

Passover and Unleavened Bread, 1st month;

Pentecost, 3rd month; and


Trumpets, Atonement, Tabernacles and Last Great Day, 7th

month.

Multiples of 7 also figure into the biblical narrative: the

“seventy weeks” prophecy in Daniel 9:24 concerns 490

years (7 times 7 times 10).


Jeremiah 29:10 predicted the Babylonian Captivity would

last for seventy years (7 times 10).

SPRINKLE OF THE BLOOD SEVEN TIMES

"And the priest shall dip his finger in the blood, and

sprinkle of the blood seven times before the Lord,

before the veil of the sanctuary". Leviticus 4:6

There we see that the blood was to be sprinkled

seven times, which signifies that the person is 'totally'

forgiven and made completely clean. Likewise:


According to Leviticus 25:8, the Year of Jubilee was to

begin after the passing of every forty-ninth year (7 times

7). Leviticus 25:1-4, 8-10

The Sabbath Year

25 The LORD said to Moses at Mount Sinai, 2 “Speak to the

Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am

going to give you, the land itself must observe a sabbath to

the LORD. 3 For six years sow your fields, and for six years

prune your vineyards and gather their crops. 4 But in the

seventh year the land is to have a year of sabbath rest, a

sabbath to the LORD. Do not sow your fields or prune your

vineyards. 5 Do not reap what grows of itself or harvest the

grapes of your untended vines. The land is to have a year of

rest. 6 Whatever the land yields during the sabbath year will

be food for you—for yourself, your male and female servants,

and the hired worker and temporary resident who live among

you, 7 as well as for your livestock and the wild animals in

your land. Whatever the land produces may be eaten.

The Year of Jubilee

8 “‘Count off seven sabbath years—seven times seven

years—so that the seven sabbath years amount to a period

of forty-nine years. 9 Then have the trumpet sounded

everywhere on the tenth day of the seventh month; on the

Day of Atonement sound the trumpet throughout your land.

10 Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty

throughout the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee

for you; each of you is to return to your family property and to

your own clan. 11 The fiftieth year shall be a jubilee for you;

do not sow and do not reap what grows of itself or harvest

the untended vines. 12 For it is a jubilee and is to be holy for

you; eat only what is taken directly from the fields.


13 “‘In this Year of Jubilee everyone is to return to their own

property.

14 “‘If you sell land to any of your own people or buy land

from them, do not take advantage of each other. 15 You are

to buy from your own people on the basis of the number of

years since the Jubilee. And they are to sell to you on the

basis of the number of years left for harvesting crops.

16 When the years are many, you are to increase the price,

and when the years are few, you are to decrease the price,

because what is really being sold to you is the number of

crops. 17 Do not take advantage of each other, but fear your

God. I am the LORD your God.

No animal could be sacrificed until it was seven days old (Ex

22:30).

The Lord would discipline Israel up to sevenfold (up to seven

times) if they refused to obey Him (Lev 26:18).

Elisha told the military commander Naaman to bathe in the

Jordan River seven times and he would be healed of his

leprosy (2 Kings 5:10).

>>>>>>>>>

http://www.seekingtruth.co.uk/bible_numbers.htm

gives the following interesting information on number 7 as a

built in life cycle for life.

Number SEVEN is so important it is worth another visit. It

seems to place God's stamp on the living world around us,

specifically in the physiology of living organisms. For

example:


• According to scripture, man's years are 70 (7 × 10)

(Ps 90.10). Today, the world average life expectancy

at birth is around 67.2 years

• The human body has an approximate 7-day clock.

The science of chronobiology describes circaseptan

('about 7') rhythms or body rhythms that run about

seven days in length. This is a very good reason to

rest every 7 days (Exod 20.10)! The 10-day week of

the humanistic French Revolution, and the

'continuous work week' of the Russian Revolution

both failed for this very reason

• Researchers report 'a built-in (genetically determined)

about-7-day (circaseptan) period' in connection with

human organ transplants. Swelling or rejection of an

organ transplant tends to follow a circaseptan rhythm

i.e. about 7 or 14 (7 × 2) days after surgery. It is

claimed that this rhythm also applies to the immune

response to infections, blood and urine chemicals,

blood pressure and the common cold

• Circaseptan (7-day) rhythms have been detected in

simple Plant life

• A woman's fertility cycle has multiples of 7. In a short

cycle of 21 days, ovulation occurs around day 7. The

average fertility cycle is 28 days (7 × 4). In a long

cycle e.g. 35 days, ovulation does not occur until

around day 21 (7 × 3)

• The adult human body is made up of around

7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (7 octillion)

atoms

• In obstetrics, the human gestation period (denoting

completeness) is around 280 days (7 × 40)

• The gestation period for a dog is typically 63 days (7 ×

9)

• The gestation period for a sheep is typically 147 days

(7 × 21)


• The gestation period for a domestic duck is typically

28 days (7 × 4)

7 = 4+3

The number three is “the number of divine fullness in unity”

and the number seven “being the sum of four and three, may

naturally be supposed to symbolize some mystical union of

God with the world, and accordingly may be called the

sacred number of the covenant between God and his

creatures.”. It points to the fullness of the Divine within the

fullness of the created world. The ideal world we look forward

to.

THE 7 LAWS WHICH NOAH GAVE TO HIS

CHILDREN - ALL MANKIND

There were seven pairs of clean animals that were

received into the Ark (Gen 7:2).


In 1991, both houses of Congress passed a bill, signed into

law by President George H. W. Bush, that declared the

Noahide laws to be “the bedrock of society from the dawn of

civilization” and the “ethical values and principles . . . upon

which our great Nation was founded” (H.J.RES.104.ENR).

These seven laws are the pillars of human civilization, and

are named the “Seven Laws of Noah” since all humans are

descended from Noah.

These are not defined and postulated in the Bible but were

implied and compiled by the Rabbis later.

Gen 9:8-10

” Then God spoke to Noah and to his sons with him, saying,


"Now behold, I Myself do establish My covenant with you,

and with your descendants after you; and with every living

creature that is with you, the birds, the cattle, and every

beast of the earth with you; of all that comes out of the ark,

even every beast of the earth.…”

The Sign of the Covenant was the Seven colored rainbow.

SEVEN SIGNS IN JOHN’S GOSPEL

1. Changing water into wine at Cana in John 2:1-11 -

"the first of the signs"

2. Healing the royal official's son in Capernaum in John

4:46-54

3. Healing the paralytic at Bethesda in John 5:1-15

4. Feeding the 5000 in John 6:5-14

5. Jesus walking on water in John 6:16-24

6. Healing the man blind from birth in John 9:1-7

7. The raising of Lazarus in John 11:1-45


SEVEN THINGS THE LORD HATES IN PROVERBS

6:16-19

There are six things the LORD hates,

seven that are detestable to him:

haughty eyes,

a lying tongue,

hands that shed innocent blood,


a heart that devises wicked schemes,

feet that are quick to rush into evil,

a false witness who pours out lies

and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.

SEVEN PARABLES IN MATTHEW 13;

• Parable of the Sower.

• Parable of the Tares.

• Parable of the Mustard Seed.

• Parable of the Leaven.

• Parable of the Hidden Treasure.

• Parable of the Pearl.

• Parable of Drawing in the Net.

JESUS PRONOUNCED SEVEN BLESSINGS ON THE

RIGHTEOUS

In Matthew 5:3-10


AND SEVEN WOES IN MATTHEW 23.

JESUS IS THE SEVEN-FOLD “I AM” IN THE

GOSPEL OF JOHN.

1. The Bread Of Life(John 6:35)

2. The Light Of The World (John 8:12)

3. The Gate (John 10:9)

4. The Good Shepherd (John 10:11)

5. The Resurrection And The Life (John 11:25-26)

6. The Way, The Truth, And The Life (John 14:6)

7. The Vine (John 15:5)

Jesus told Peter to forgive a wrongdoer “seventy

times seven” times (Matthew 18:22,).

On the occasion of the feeding of the five thousands

we have: "And they did eat, and were filled, and they

took up of the broken that was left, seven baskets

full." Matthew 15:37


MARY CALLED MAGDALENE, OUT OF WHOM

WENT SEVEN DEVILS

"And certain woman, which had been healed of evil

spirits and infirmities, Mary called magdalene, out of

whom went Seven Devils." luke 8:2

"Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the

week, He appeared unto mary Magdalene, out of

whom went Seven devils." Mark 16:9

Jesus cast out of her seven devils to signify the totality

of the rule of Satan in her. When we are saved, we

are made free from Satan where he no longer has rule

over us. The number seven signified the total removal

of Satan from within her, and now God would make

His abode there. And what agreement has the Temple

of God with the temple of idols? None. Satan is totally

cast out. The Number seven illustrates his total rule in

the unsaved. But by Grace of God he is totally cast

out when we become Saved.

In the book of Revelation, the number 7 is used there

more than fifty times in a variety of contexts:

REVELATION OF JOHN SEES

seven letters to seven churches in Asia

seven spirits before God’s throne (Revelation 1:4),

seven golden lampstands (1:12),

seven stars in Christ’s right hand (1:16),

seven seals of God’s judgment (5:1),

seven angels with seven trumpets (8:2),

seven bowls of the Great Tribulation, for example

(Revelation 16:1)


Likewise, we can see the exact same application of the

number seven in the opposite of Christ. As in the totality of

authority in the kingdom of Satan. This is illustrated in the

seven heads of the dragon as revealed in Revelation

chapter twelve.

"And there appeared another Wonder in Heaven, and

behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and

and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads."

Revelation 12:3

The seven heads are seven mountains (revelation

17:9) which are symbolic of kingdoms. Seven equals

the totality of authority (heads) of this dragon and of

his rule throughout time.

The crowns signify that it is a kingdom, and the seven

his complete rule throughout time in it. Thus we see in

this symbolism a picture of the totality of the dragon's

(satan's) rule.

That is why it says (revelation 17:10) that five of the

heads of this beast had already fallen at the time of

the writing of Revelation. Those rules of Satan were

over. It said, one is, and one is yet to come, and there

was a final 8th (which was part of the seven). i.e., it's

part of 'this totality,' and he would rule a short time

near the end of the world when Satan is loosed. The

Seven illustrates the totality of the time of rule of this

beast. God uses this number in this way to show us

certain Spiritual truths. It's not the perfection of Satan,

but illustrates the totality of his authority (heads) and

rule. He is the prince of the power of the air. When the

seventh king falls, that will be the end of him, the finish

of the totality of his rule and authority.


THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD IS SIGNIFIED BY 'SEVEN

SPIRITS, AND SEVEN EYES.'

"And unto the Angel of the Church at Sardis write, these

things saith He that hath the Seven Spirits of God, and the

Seven stars; I know thy Works, that thou hast a name which

thou liveth, and art dead." Revelation 3:1


http://www.shepherds-rod-speaks.org/

"And out of the Throne proceedeth lightnings and

Thunderings and voices; and there were Seven lamps of fire

burning before the Throne, which are the seven Spirits of

God." Revelation 4:5

"And I beheld, and lo in the midst of the throne and of the

four living creatures,, and in the midst of the elders, stood a

Lamb as it had been slain, having Seven Horns, and Seven

Eyes, which are the Seven Spirits of God sent forth into all

the earth." Revelation 5:6

The seven horns signify the 'totality' of his rule and power,

and the seven eyes illustrate the 'totality' of the watch of the

Holy Spirit.

Eyes equate to seeing/knowing.

There is one Holy Spirit, but the number seven here is

numeric symbolism illustrating His presence over the totality

of the world.

And the same application with the Seven eyes. It illustrates

his 'total' watch over the earth where He sees all.


The Holy Spirit of God is Omnipotent, Omniscient, and

Omnipresent.

The number seven illustrates the magnificent totality of this.

(7 horns - Omnipotent) The totality of His Power!

(7 spirits - Omnipresent) He is all (totality) Everywhere!

(7 eyes - Omniscient) He is all (totality) knowing/seeing!

In the book of Hebrews, .

SEVEN TITLES TO REFER TO CHRIST

ARE

'Heir of all things' (Hebrews 1:2),

'Captain of our salvation' (2:10),

'Apostle' (3:1),

'Author of salvation' (5:9),

'Forerunner' (6:20),

'High Priest' (10:21) and

the 'Author and finisher of our faith' (12:2).

JESUS PERFORMED SEVEN MIRACLES ON

SABBATH DAY

thus affirming its continued sacredness to God and necessity

in the life of the believer.

Jesus healed the withered hand of a man attending

synagogue services (Matthew 12:9)

At a Capernaum synagogue he casts out an unclean spirit

that possessed a man (Mark 1:21)

Right after the above miracle Jesus heals Peter's wife's

mother of a fever (Mark 1:29)

A woman attending synagogue, who was made sick by a

demon for eighteen years, is released from her bondage

(Luke 13:11)

At a Pharisee's house eating a meal with the host and

several lawyers, Jesus heals a man with dropsy (Luke 14:2)


A man who is disabled and unable to walk is healed at the

pool of Bethesda (John 5:8 - 9)

Jesus heals a man born blind at the pool of Siloam (John

9:14)

STATISTICS OF SEVENS IN THE BIBLE

http://www.vic.australis.com.au

By Andrew Harris 6 July 1999

Seven in the Old Testament

The Hebrew word for seven occurs a total of 392 times in the

Bible.

This is not only a multiple of seven but of seven times seven,

392 = 8 x 7 x 7.

392 is also remarkable for being the sum of the square of

seven and the cube of seven, ie. 392 = (7 x 7) + (7 x 7 x 7) or

392 = 7 2 + 7 3 .

It may be nothing more than a strange coincidence that the

word seven is used exactly seven times in Genesis chapter

seven. Then again, it may not.

The times seven is used as a number by itself is 287

times.287 = 41 x 7.

It is used in conjunction with other numbers to make a

composite number (such as one hundred and seven) 105

times(note 105 +287 =392). 105 = 15 x 7. This number also

has the interesting property of being the lowest multiple of

3,5,7 the three consecutive odd numbers (also primes) after

one itself.

The word seven is often used more than once in a verse. So

the number of verses in which it appears will be less than the

total number of times it is used. It turns out that the word


seven appears in 343 verses. 343 = 7 x 7 x 7 = 7 3 . There is

therefore 49 times seven is used more than the first time in a

verse, or there are 49 repeat uses. 49 = 7 x 7 = 7 2 . This is the

same division of 392 = 7 3 + 7 2 that we noted at the top of this

list.

There are two other words used in the Old Testament to

mean seven. The aramaic word ([b'v] shib-aw') is used six

times. A long form of the Hebrew word for seven (hn:[;b]vi

shib-aw-naw’) is used once. In total these other words are

used seven times.

The Hebrew word for a seventh (y[iybiv] sheb-ee-ee’) occurs

98 times. 98 = 2 x 7 x 7. Note that not only is this a multiple of

seven but of seven times seven, just as was the total number

of occurrences of the word seven (see above).

The word for sevenfold, or seven times, (µyIt'[;b]vi

shib-aw-thah’-yim) occurs seven times.

The word for seventy (µy[ib]vi shib-eem’) occurs 91 times. 91

= 13 x 7.

There are ten other words derived from the same word as

seven meaning fullness or completeness. Together they

appear a total of 434 times in the Bible. 434 = 62 x 7.

Seven in the New Testament

The Greek word for seven (eJptav hepta) occurs 87 times.87

= 29 x 3.

It is also remarkable that the word for seven is used in only

the first three of the gospels.

It is used a total of nine times in Matthew. 9 = 3 x 3.

It is used a total of nine times in Mark. 9 = 3 x 3.


It is used a total of six times in Luke. 6 = 2 x 3.

It is used a total of nine times between the Gospels and

Revelation. Eight times in Acts and once in Hebrews. 9 = 3 x

3.

It is used a total of 54 times in the book of Revelation. 54 =

18 x 3 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 = 2 x 3 3 .

The Greek word seventh (e{bdomo" hebdomos) occurs nine

times.9 = 3 x 3.

Seven times or seven fold (eJptavki" heptakis) occurs 3

times.

Seventy (eJbdomhvkonta hebdomenkonta) occurs 5 times.

Seventy times or seventy fold (ejbdomhkontavki"

hebdomenkontakis) occurs once. Together these two words

occur 6 times.6 = 2 x 3.

In total these words occur 105 times (87 +9 +3 + 6 =105).

105 =3 x 5 x 7. So the total occurences are not only a

multiple of three but of seven as well. This is interesting

because 3 and 7 are the first two of the perfect numbers.

Thus appearence of the word seven itself is used in a

marvelous pattern of sevens that spans each of the

testaments. In combination a few points can also be made.

Seven in the Bible

Now that we are aware of the complimentary pattern of

threes that appears in the New testament, it should be noted

that there are three different words used in the Old

Testament to mean, the number seven.


The number of times that the word for seven or one of its

derivitive numbers (seventh, seventy etc.) appears in the

entire Bible is 392 + 7 + 98 + 7 + 91 = 595 in the Old

Testament. Add the 105 occurences from the New

Testament and we have the remarkable number 700.

Taking the number of 700 arrived at above, if we add the

other 434 occurences of words derived from the same root in

the Hebrew we get a total of 1134. Naturally this is a multiple

of seven, but it is also a multiple of 3 which also fulfills the

pattern seen in the occurences of seven in the New

Testament. 1134 = 2 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 3 x 7 = 2 x 3 4 x 7.

The total number of words based on the Hebrew and the

Greek words for seven is, sixteen in the Old testament and

five in the New Testament. Making a total of twenty one

words (13) , this again fills the pattern of both sevens and

threes. 21 = 3 x 7.


Light splits into the seven colors of the rainbow, a

musical octave has seven different notes before it repeats

itself, there are seven mineral crystal types and even

seven periodicity levels on the Periodic Table of

Elements. Because of the omnipresence of seven in all of

the systems we understand today, many people understand

that the Holy Bible is a perfect textbook of all of creation:

music, chemistry, physics and many other types of science.

Hebrew people find the number seven to be sacred because

it signifies godly perfection in the world and heaven above.

The number seven therefore speaks of a union between

heaven and earth that is demonstrated frequently in the Bible:

seven churches, seven stars, seven seals, seven dooms,

seven trumpets and seven spirits.

The number seven is perhaps most obviously associated

with completeness and oneness of God and earth in the

story of creation. Everything was done on the seventh day

and nothing else was added or taken away after that.

Perfection was achieved on day seven.

On the Day of Atonement, the mercy seat is dabbled with

blood seven times by the high priest. This signifies the

perfect ability of God to redeem humankind. The Holy

Tabernacle's candlestick has seven branches, which signify

the entirety of God's light working in people's lives. In the

Book of Revelation, God promises various blessings on

believers seven different times.

Scientifically speaking, seven is a very significant number as

well. Much of the human body's cellular regeneration works

on a seven-year scale. There are seven holes in our head,

and seven bones in our neck, ankle and face.


Panin discovered 30 separate codes involving the number 7

in this first verse of the Bible.

CHAPTER TEN

EIGHT

Number 8 is written in Hebrew as Chet which is the 8 th letter

in the Hebrew alphabet and represents a gateway which

gives it meaning of freedom and the Life Dynamic of Run and

Return . Chet is the letter of life (chaim, from the root chayah,

whose most important letter is chet). According to the Ari

z”l,” the letter chet is constructed by combining the two


previous letters, vav and zayin, The shape of the letter,

according to the rabbis, is formed through a Vav and Zayin

side by side.

the shape of the Vav (nail) and Zayin (sceptre) are nearly

identical. Joined together they form the entranceway to God

Jesus said ... "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one

comes to the Father but through Me."

(John 14:6)

The number eight in the Bible signifies Resurrection and

Regeneration. ... Eight is 7 plus 1 and since it comes just

after seven, which itself signifies an end to something, so

eight is also associated with the beginning of a new era or

that of a new order.

All three concepts of Circumcision, Baptism, and

Resurrection come together as rebirth symbols

One of the beginning of New Era was when Noah emerged

from the Ark.

8 people started a new world.

The resurrection of Jesus again starts a new life for all who

believe in him by his rising from the dead on the eighth day

or first day after the end of the old week.

The eighth day marked the beginning of new life form. Thus

we can see that the number eight in the Bible signifies

resurrection and new beginning.

9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to

one place, and let dry ground appear.”

11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation:

seed-bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with

seed in it, according to their various kinds.”

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the vault of the sky

to separate the day from the night,

20 And God said, “Let the water teem with living creatures,

24 And God said, “Let the land produce living creatures

according to their kinds: the livestock, the creatures that

move along the ground, and the wild animals, each

according to its kind.”

26 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in

our likeness,

He granted them to Man:

29 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb

bearing seed…….


THE EIGHT COVENANTS OF THE

BIBLE

There are eight major covenants between God and man in

the Bible

I. THE EDENIC COVENANT Genesis 1:28-30:

II. THE ADAMIC COVENANT Genesis 3:14-19

III. THE NOAHIC COVENANT Genesis 9:1-17

IV. THE ABRAHAMIC COVENANT

First: Genesis 12:1-3:

Second: Genesis 12:7:

Third: Genesis 13:14-17

The fourth and fifth Genesis 15:1-21 and Genesis

17:1-21

A sixth passage is Genesis 22:15-18:

V. THE MOSAIC COVENANT

Exodus 20:1 - 31;Exodus 19-24; 34:10, 27, 28;

Deuteronomy 5:2-3.

VI. THE LAND COVENANT A. Deuteronomy 29:1-30:20

VII. THE DAVIDIC COVENANT II Samuel 7:11b-16:

VIII. THE NEW COVENANT

Jesus’ New Covenant in his blood Isaiah 55:3;

Jeremiah 31:31-34; Matthew 26:28; Mark 14:24; Luke 22:20;

Hebrews 12:24. "

The eighth day of the Feast of Tabernacles was special, a

solemn assembly:

Leviticus 23:36 Seven days ye shall offer an offering made

by fire unto the LORD: on the eighth day shall be an holy

convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by

fire unto the LORD: it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do

no servile work therein.


8 is the number of new beginnings. Blood

is the seal of God's covenant.

• Jewish males had to be circumcised on the 8 th day after

birth. Jesus was circumcised and

first shed His blood on the 8th day.

• Eight were saved in the ark (1 Peter 3:20).

• David was the 8th son of Jesse.

• After the flood subsided. Noah sacrificed to God. God

smelled the soothing aroma and made a covenant with

Noah.

The soothing aroma has 8 letters in which

is the 3 rd , 7 th , and 8 th letters

THE EIGHT BEATITUDES OF JESUS

The eight beatitudes of the sermon on the

mountain. (Mt 5:3-11)

"Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of

heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger and thirst for righteousness,


for they shall be satisfied.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure of heart, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called

children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for the sake of

righteousness,

for theirs

is the kingdom of heaven."

There are 8 things God’s Word commands us to think about

in order to have a new life:

Philippians 4:8

Finally, brethren,

1. whatsoever things are true,

2. whatsoever things are honest,

3. whatsoever things are just,

4. whatsoever things are pure,

5. whatsoever things are lovely,

6. whatsoever things are of good report;

7. if there be any virtue,

8. and if there be any praise,

think on these things.


There are 8 things that the Bible says shall not cease!

Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth,

1. seedtime and

2. harvest,

3. and cold

4. and heat,

5. and summer

6. and winter,

7. and day

8. and night

shall not cease.


Eight is the personal number of Jesus.

When we add together the letter values of the name Jesus in

the Greek we get 888.


EIGHT, OCTAVES, AND NEW BEGINNINGS

Octaves are notes that you hear as being "the same" in spite

of their being higher or lower in actual pitch. (Technically,

notes separated by an octave are in the same pitch class.)

Play middle C on the piano. Then go up the C major scale

(the white keys) and the eighth note you play will be another

C an octave higher. The "oct" part of the word refers to this

eight step distance up the scale.

From a science perspective, octaves are pitch intervals

related by factors of two. When a tuning fork plays standard

concert A, it vibrates at 440 Hz. The A an octave higher is

880 Hz, and the A an octave lower is 220 Hz. Any note with

the frequency 2^n * 440 will be an A. It's a central mystery of

human cognition why we hear pitches related by powers of

two as being "the same" note. It is the same note but one

step higher. - a new heaven. The ability to detect octave

equivalency is probably built in to our brains, and it isn't

limited to humans.


CHAPTER ELEVEN

NINE

Tet is interpreted as a man in submission

as snake

Tet interpreted

http://www.hebrew4christians.com/Grammar/Unit_One/Aleph-Bet/Tet/tet.ht

ml


The ninth letter in the Hebrew alefbet is tet - ‏.ט The letter tet

has the numerical value of nine. The least common letter ט -

in the Torah is a Tet.

In Greek it is the letter Theta

The first tet - ט that appears in the Torah is in the word tov

of Genesis 1:4, normally translated as good, but a better

meaning is beneficial. There are other intepretation of tet as

representing evil presence within the creation just as when

light was created darkness was also embeded since

darkenss in simply lack of light. Hence some Kaballists

represent it as s Serpent.. So it is the dialectics of creation -

both good and evil.

“Tet = Snake/Surround .. objectively good but may

be evil, judgment of God.”


NINE CHORUSES OF ANGELS

There are nine choruses of angels are commonly given by

early Christian Fathers

Pseudo-Dionysius the Areopagite in De Coelesti Hierarchia

(ca. 5th century):

St. Gregory the Great in Homilia (6th century)

St. Isidore of Seville in Etymologiae (7th century) etc.

• First sphere: 1. Seraphim, 2. Cherubim, 3. Thrones;

• Second sphere: 4. Dominations (also translated as

Lordships), 5. Virtues (also trans. as Powers), 6.

Powers (also trans. as Authorities);

• Third sphere: 7. Principalities, 8. Archangels, 9.

Angels.


There are multiple instances in the Bible that utilize the

number nine to fulfill these symbols as well. Jesus Christ

died at the ninth hour after being hung on the cross.

St. Paul's list

fruits of the Holy Spirit number nine:

peace, love, goodness, gentleness, truthfulness, joy,

patience, kindness and self-control.

The judgments of God

In Haggai 1:11 are enumerated in nine particulars:

“And I called for a drought upon the land,

and upon the mountains,

and upon the corn,

and upon the new wine,

and upon the oil,

and upon that which the ground bringeth forth,

and upon men,

and upon cattle,

and upon all the labor of the hands.”

The fruits of the Holy Spirit

"But the fruit of the Spirit is

love,

joy,

peace,

forbearance,

kindness,

goodness,

faithfulness,

gentleness, and


self-control."

The Manifestations of the Holy Spirit

But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to

profit withal. For to one is given by the Spirit

1. the word of wisdom;

2. to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit;

3. To another faith by the same Spirit;

4. to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit

5. To another the working of miracles;

6. to another prophecy;


7. to another discerning of spirits;

8. to another divers kinds of tongues;

9. to another the interpretation of tongues:

But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit,

dividing to every man severally as he will.


In the genealogy of biblical characters,

the time between Adam and Noah is nine generations,

and the time between Noah and Abraham is also nine

generations.

Abraham received direct word from God he was 99 years old.

Logically speaking, the original name of Habram works out to

be the number nine as well. This signifies the spiritual

completion of his life and soul.

The Numbers 10, 100, 1000

In the Old Testament one direct connecttion to number 10

comes from Ten Commandment given to Israel on the Mount

Sinai.


There were 10 Plagues of Egypt before God rescued Israel

out of Egypt.


PEOPLE RAISED FROM THE DEAD

OLD TESTAMENT

1. Elijah raised the son of the Zarephath widow from the

dead (1 Kings 17:17-22).

2. Elisha raised the son of the Shunammite woman from the

dead (2 Kings 4:32-35).

3. A man was raised from the dead when his body touched

Elisha’s bones (2 Kings 13:20, 21).

NEW TESTAMENT

4. Many saints rose from the dead at the resurrection of

The mention of number 10 in the Bible occurs very often. It

usually refers to the completeness or fullness.

Number 10 in Bible is also about 10 nations who were

hostile to the Israel.

Revelation 17:12: And the ten horns which thou sawest

are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet;

but receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

The 10 kingdoms of Revelation 17 are considered by some


scholars as enumerated in Psalms 83:6-8: These are:

Psalms 83:6: The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites;

of Moab, and the Hagarenes;

Psalms 83:7: Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the

Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;

Psalms 83:8: Assur also is joined with them

But in general it symbolizes a large number of surrounding

nations.

When used in connection with the heavenlies it is the

number of heavenly perfection - 10 plagues, 10

commandments, 10x10 sockets of Tabernacle foundation,

10th of your earnings make the tithe.

The Numbers ten and it's multiples (10,100, 1000)

often illustrates the Fullness of whatever is in view,

without it "necessarily" being the totality. This is

especially true about the symbolism in Revelations

and in parables:

The Parable of the lost coin:"Either what woman

having ten pieces of silver, if she lose one piece,

doth not light a candle, and sweep the house, and

seek diligently till she find it?" Luke 15:8

The Parable of the lost sheep:What man of you,

having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of

them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the

wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until

he find it? Luke 15:3-5

The parable of the vines and silverings of Isaiah:"And

it shall come to pass in THAT DAY, that every place

shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a

thousand silverlings, it shall even be for briers and

thorns. With arrows and with bows shall men come


hither; because All he land shall become briers and

thorns." Isaiah 7:23

A THOUSAND GENERATIONS:

"Know therefore that the LORD thy God, he is God,

the faithful God, which keepeth covenant and mercy

with them that love him and keep his commandments

to a thousand generations;" Deuteronomy 7:9

"Be ye mindful always of his covenant; the word which

he commanded to a thousand generations," 1st

Chronicles 16:15

"He hath remembered his covenant for ever, the word

which he commanded to a thousand generations."

Psalms 105:8


CHAPTER THIRTEEN

OTHERS

THE NUMBER 12

Twelve spiritually points to the Congregation of God.

A good example would be the twelve brothers, the

twelve sons of Jacob who were the progenitors of

the twelve tribes of Israel. This was the Old Testament

congregation, or Children of God.


Likewise, the significance is passed on after the cross

as the twelve apostles became the New Testament

representative of the congregation or Children of God.

Another example would be the woman who had

suffered many things of Physicians, and none could

heal her. God meticulously points out that it was for

twelve years..

Mark 5:25

• "And a certain Woman which had an issue of

blood twelve years.."

This woman touched but the hem of Jesus garment,

and was made whole. I.e., what was unclean for 12

years was now clean. The garment of Christ is

signifying the Righteousness of Christ. Just as

scripture says we are clothed in the Righteousness of

Christ. This Woman had been made righteous, by the

virtue of Christ!

The number 12 is closely associated in the Bible with the

number three, which represents the holy Trinity, and the

number four, which represents the whole material

realm.


The golden table was to hold 12 cakes of bread made of fine

flour. They were placed there in two rows of six, each loaf

representing one of the tribes of Israel (Lev. 24:8). the whole

called out tribes.

At the last supper, Jesus Christ breaks one loaf of bread

and declares them to be the "Bread of Life," as well as his

divine body. And gives it to his 12 disciples, the nucleus of

his church.

The Old Testament is also full of symbology surrounding the

number 12 and the various meanings of it.

For example, the celestial city was guarded by 12 different

gates, each of which had one of 12 precious gemstones.

The tree of life grows a different type of fruit for each month

of the year: 12 different ones.

A woman is graced by 12 stars resting on her crown.

Both Jacob and Ishmael had 12 sons and there were 12

priests in the Chronicles.

Elisha's altar was made from 12 stones, 12 loaves of bread

for left on a golden table as an offering, 12 names were

engraved on the pectoral, 12 branches confined Aaron and

12 explorers sought out Canaan.

The book of Revelation again mentions the 12 gates,

which are each guarded by an angel so that they number

12 altogether, that must be passed through to reach the

kingdom of heaven.


THE THREE-FOLD

COMBINATIONS OF A

NUMBER

The tripling of a number emphasizes the

characteristics of the number:

Thus;

• 666 is the number of man, and it symbolises fitly,

therefore, the essence of human wisdom, and also of

imperfection.

• 888 is the number or gematria of the name "JESUS."

• 999 is the number connected with judgment, hence

the numerical value of the phrase th orgh mou (tee orgee

mou), my wrath, is 999. The same number is very prominent

in the judgment on Sodom. (See further under Nine.)

The Number 40

The letter Mem is the thirteenth letter of the

Hebrew Alphabet. The letter Mem is equivalent

to forty (40).


Mem is heavily connected with the concept of

Water and womb. As such it is interpreted as a

period of new beginnings, rebirth and

renewals.

“And אלהים Elohiym said, Let the מים mayim (waters) under

shamayim be gathered שמים

together unto one place, and let the dry [land] appear: and it

was so. And אלהים Elohiym called the

dry [land] ארץ 'erets [earth, our body]; and the gathering

together of the waters called he ים yam

[seas]…” - Genesis 1:9-10

Traditionally, Mem means “waters”, “people” “nations”,

“languages” and tongues.

The mem, the letter of “water” (mayim) symbolizes the

fountain of the Divine Wisdom of Torah. It is the spiritual

womb from which we rebirth into a higher world after a period

of gestation.

When the whole mankind turned to selfish and when their

imaginations of their mind became constantly evil after a

period of gestation with 40 days of rain and subsequent


period of preparation Noah and his family were reborn into a

new cleaned earth.

In this way almost all referrence to 40 may be associated

with newbirth to a new realm of existence.

Every time one finds the number forty in Torah, its inner

meaning is the ascent from one level to the next higher one.

In fact the human gestation period is 40 weeks.

THE NUMBER FORTY IN SCRIPTURE

OFTEN ILLUSTRATES A TIME OF

TRIAL OR TESTING A PREPARATION

FOR NEW BIRTH

The letter Mem is the first letter of the word Mayim – The

Hebrew word for water. Mayim- מים starts with an open

mem and concludes with a closed mem. Water, a drash or

parable for Torah. The closed "mem" is used in the first

saying of Creation. The open "mem" is used in the

subsequent nine sayings of Creation. It is a womb of creation

with the Holy Spirit.


In the terminology of Kabbalah, this flow is from keter

(“crown”) to chochmah (“wisdom”).

There are two forms of Mem. One open and the other closed.

One refers to the revealed secrets

of God and the others closed or unrevealed

mysteries.

ם

- The closed, Final Mem, represents the era of Mesiah. The word Mashiach (Messiah) itself begins with a mem. In

the time of the coming of Mashiach, the earth will be filled

with the knowledge of HaShem as the waters cover the sea

(Isaiah 11:9); then, even the closed mem will be revealed.


http://tshuvah.weebly.com/teachings-blog/messiah-in-prophecyscripturethe-final-mem-in-isaiah-97-yshayahu-96

Only once in the entire Torah, in reference to Mashiach, do

we find a closed mem in the middle of a word:

Mem-Sofit letter‏(ם)‏ – EXCEPT for the only exception in all

of Scripture being in Isaiah 9:6/(7) where the closed/final

Mem is used in the middle of a word !…

"Of the INCREASE of His government…”.

In this one and only case, we see that the closed-Mem

appears in the middle of the word “increase/l:marbeh”

While in and of itself, this highly unusual exception ‏.(לםרבה)‏

in the midst of this remarkable passage speaks for itself, yet

early Judaic commentary adds even more interesting

observations…In Judaism, the Closed-Mem is also spoken

of as referring to the closed womb of a woman (One example:

Bahir 84-85). This then points us to this Child in verses

9:5-6/(6-7) being of a super-natural birth, and also points us

back to this verse of Isaiah 7:14: “Therefore the Lord

himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive,

and bear a Son, and shall call His Name ImmanuEl/(El/God

with us).”


efore God selected him to lead his people out

of slavery.

Moses was in the mount of Sinai 40 days

twice (Exodus 24:18, 34:1 - 28)

Moses was in the mount of Sinai with the Lord

for forty days and the Children of Israel were

tried, and they failed the test making

themselves an idol. The second time he

brought in the Law that should govern the

people of God.

Punishment of correction was to be one less

that 40 lashed to the guilty.

Israel in the wilderness 40 years

"And thou shalt remember all the way which

the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in

the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove

thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether

thou wouldest keep His commandments or no."

Deuteronomy 8:2

Only after the whole adults who left Egypt

perished (except the few God selected) they

were allowed to enter Canaan.

Moses sent out spies into Canaan for 40 days

to test and see the land before crossing over.

(Numbers 13:25, 14:34).

Jona

The prophet Jonah prophesied againsst the

City of Nineveh, for forty days, and they were

saved.

Ezekiel


The prophet Ezekiel laid on His right side for

40 days to symbolize Judah's sins (Ezekiel

4:6).

Elijah

Elijah went 40 days and 40 nights without food

or water to Mount Horeb.

Jesus was tested in the wilderness 40 days

"and He was there in the Wilderness forty days,

tempted of Satan." Mark 1:13

Jesus among his disciples 40 days after his

resurrection.

"to whom Jesus showed Himself alive after His

passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of

them forty days, and speaking of things

pertaining to the Kingdom of God." Acts 1:3

40 years after the resurrection Jerusalem was

totally destroyed and the temple burned by the

Romans in AD 70.

The Aish Rabbi Replies:

http://www.aish.com/atr/The_Number_40.html

The number 40 has great significance throughout the Torah

and the Talmud. The number 40 represents transition or

change; the concept of renewal; a new beginning. The

number 40 has the power to lift a spiritual state. Consider:

When a person becomes ritually impure, he must immerse in

a ritual bath, a mikveh. The Talmud tells us that a mikveh

must be filled with 40 se'ahs (a measure of water).


Immersion in a mikveh is the consummate Jewish symbol of

spiritual renewal.

It is no accident that in the story of Noah, the rain poured for

40 days, and submerged the world in water. Just as a person

leaves a mikveh pure, so too when the waters of the flood

subsided, the world was purified from the licentiousness

which had corrupted it in the days of Noah.

Moses was on Mt. Sinai for 40 days and came down with the

stone tablets. The Jews arrived at Mt. Sinai as a nation of

Egyptian slaves, but after 40 days they were transformed

into God's nation.

According to the Talmud, it takes 40 days for an embryo to

be formed in its mother's womb.

In Kabbalah, 40 represents the four sides of the world, each

side containing the ten Sefirot (esoteric powers).

When a rabbinical court finds someone guilty of a crime, the

punishment is sometimes lashes, prescribed in the Torah as

"forty less one." The purpose is to bring the offender to a

point of change, transition and atonement.

There are 40 days between the first day of Elul, when we

begin to blow the Shofar to prepare for Rosh Hashana, until

Yom Kippur, the end of the annual teshuva (repentance)

period. These 40 days are the most auspicious time for

personal growth and renewal.

According to the Talmud (Avot 5:26), at age 40 a person

transitions from one level of wisdom to the next. After Moses

led the Jewish people for 40 years in the wilderness, he told

them: "God has not given you a heart to know, and eyes to

see, and ears to hear, until this day" (Deut. 29:3-4). From


here we see that it took the Jewish people 40 years before

reaching a full level of understanding.

send rain on the earth forty days and forty nights ..."

Biblical Numerology (Numbers

and Meanings)

http://www.biblestudy.org/bibleref/meaning-of-numbers-in-bi

ble/1.html

Number 1

Symbol of Unity. “One” excludes all difference, for there is no

second with which it can either harmonize or conflict. It

marks the beginning. We must begin with God. All our words

and works must be characterized by the first words of the

Bible: “In the beginning GOD.” Nothing is right that does not

begin with Him. “God first” is the voice of Scripture. “Seek ye

first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; and all these

things shall be added unto you” (Matthew 6:33) is the

testimony of Christ. “God first” is the great proclamation.

Number 2

Two affirms that there is a difference – there is another. One

affirms that there is not another!

This difference may be for good or for evil. A thing may differ

from evil, and be good; or it may differ from good, and be evil.

Hence, it takes a Two-fold coloring, according to the context.

It is the first number by which we can divide another, and

therefore in all its uses we may trace this fundamental idea of

division or difference.

The number two may be, though different in character, yet

one as to testimony and friendship. The Second that comes

in may be for help and deliverance. But, alas! where man is

concerned, this number testifies of his fall, for it more often


denotes that difference which implies opposition, enmity, and

oppression.*

Number 3

Three, therefore, stands for that which is solid, real,

substantial, complete, and entire. All things that are specially

complete are stamped with this number:

•God’s attributes are: omniscience, omnipresence, and

omnipotence.

•There great divisions completing time: past, present, and

future.

•3 persons, in grammar, express and include all the

relationships of mankind.

•Thought, word, and deed, complete the sum of human

capability.

•Three degrees of comparison complete our knowledge of

qualities.

•The simplest proposition requires three things to complete it;

viz., the subject, the predicate, and the copula.

•Three propositions are necessary to complete the simplest

form of argument: the major premise, the minor, and the

conclusion.

•3 kingdoms embrace our ideas of matter; mineral, vegetable,

and animal.

When we turn to the Scriptures, this completion becomes

Divine, and marks Divine completeness or perfection.

Number 4

Now 4 is made up of three and one (3+1=4), and it denotes

His creative works. He is known by the things that are seen.

Hence the written revelation commences with the words, “In

the beginning God CREATED.” Creation is therefore the next

thing – the fourth thing, and the number four always has


eference to all that is created. It is emphatically the number

of Creation; of man in his relation to the world as created.

•Four is the number of the great elements: earth, air, fire, and

water.

•Four are the regions of the earth: north, south, east, and

west.

•Four are the divisions of the day: morning, noon, evening,

and midnight.

•Four are the seasons of the year – spring, summer, autumn,

and winter.

• Four are the great variations of the lunar phases.

Four marks division also. For the river was “parted.” It is the

first number which is not a “prime,” the first which can be

divided. It is the first square number also, and therefore it

marks a kind of completeness as well, which we have called

material completeness.

Number 5

Five is four plus one (4+1). Now we have a further revelation

of a People called out from mankind, redeemed and saved,

to walk with God from earth to heaven. Hence, Redemption

follows creation. Inasmuch as in consequence of the fall of

man creation came under the curse and was “made subject

to vanity,” therefore man and creation must be redeemed.

Thus we have:

1.Father

2.Son

3.Spirit

4.Creation

5.Redemption

These are the 5 great mysteries, and five is therefore the

number of GRACE.


If four is the number of the world, then it represents man’s

weakness, and helplessness, and vanity, as we have seen.

But four plus one (4+1=5) is significant of Divine strength

added to and made perfect in that weakness; of omnipotence

combined with the impotence of earth; of Divine favor

uninfluenced and invincible.

November 6

Six is either 4 plus 2, i.e., man’s world (4) with man’s enmity

to God (2) brought in: or it is 5 plus 1, the grace of God made

of none effect by man’s addition to it, or perversion, or

corruption of it: or it is 7 minus 1, i.e., man’s coming short of

spiritual perfection. In any case, therefore, it has to do with

man; it is the number of imperfection; the human number; the

number of MAN as destitute of God, without God, without

Christ.

Six, therefore, is the number of labor also, of man’s labor as

apart and distinct from God’s rest. True, it marks the

completion of Creation as God’s work, and therefore the

number is significant of secular completeness.

The serpent also was created on the sixth day.

The Sixth Commandment relates to the worst sin – murder.

The sixth clause of the Lord’s prayer treats of sin.

The number 6 is stamped on all that is connected with

human labor. We see it stamped upon his measures which

he uses in his labor, and on the time during which he labors.

And we see this from the very beginning.

The number 6 is also stamped upon the measurements of

the Great Pyramid, the unit of which was the inch and its

sexagesimal multiples. The first multiple is the foot, 12

inches (2×6); and after this the rises are 18 ( 3 x 6), 24 (4×6),

30 ( 5 x 6), and 36 (6×6 = the yard).

Number 7


We come now to the great number of spiritual perfection. A

number which, therefore, occupies so large a place in the

works, and especially in the Word of God as being inspired

by the Holy Spirit.

Number 8

In Hebrew the number eight is (Sh’moneh), from the root

(Shah’meyn), “to make fat,” “cover with fat,” “to

super-abound.” As a participle it means “one who abounds in

strength,” etc. As a noun it is “superabundant fertility,” “oil,”

etc. So that as a numeral it is the superabundant number. As

seven was so called because the seventh day was the day of

completion and rest, so eight, as the eighth day, was over

and above this perfect completion, and was indeed the first

of a new series, as well as being the eighth. We consider the

connection between 8 and 7 in another section.

Eight is 7 plus 1. Hence it is the number specially associated

with Resurrection and Regeneration, and the beginning of a

new era or order.

Number 9

The number nine is a most remarkable number in many

respects. It is held in great reverence by all who study the

occult sciences; and in mathematical science it possesses

properties and powers which are found in no other number.*

* Among others may be mentioned (1) that the sum of the

digits which form its multiples are themselves always a

multiple of nine; e.g., 2 x 9 = 18 (and 1+8=9); 3 x 9 = 27 (and

2+7=9); 4 x 9 = 36 (and 3+6=9); 5 x 9 = 45 (and 4+5=9), etc.,

etc.; and so with the larger numbers: 52843 x 9 = 475587

(and 4+7+5+5+8+7=36, and 3+6=9). (2) The sum of its

multiples through the nine digits = 405, or 9 times 45.


It is the last of the digits, and thus marks the end; and is

significant of the conclusion of a matter.

It is akin to the number six, six being the sum of its factors (3

x 3=9, and 3+3=6), and is thus significant of the end of man,

and the summation of all man’s works. Nine is, therefore, the

number of finality or judgment.

The number of finality or judgment is committed unto Jesus

as “the Son of man” (John 5:27; Acts 17:31). It marks the

completeness, the end and issue of all things as to man —

the judgment of man and all his works.

It is a factor of 666, which is 9 times 74.

The Gematria (substituting numbers for letters) of the word

“Dan,” which means a judge, is 54 (9 x 6).

The sum of the 22 letters of the Hebrew alphabet is 4995 (5 x

999). It is stamped, therefore, with the numbers of grace and

finality. The sum of the Greek alphabet is 3999.

What are the 9 judgments of God?

The judgments of God in Haggai 1:11 are enumerated in

nine particulars:

“And I called for a drought upon the land,

and upon the mountains,

and upon the corn,

and upon the new wine,

and upon the oil,

and upon that which the ground bringeth forth,

and upon men,

and upon cattle,

and upon all the labor of the hands.”

Number 10

It has been already pointed out that ten is one of the perfect

numbers, and signifies the perfection of Divine order,


commencing, as it does, an altogether new series of

numbers. The first decade is the representative of the whole

numeral system, and originates the system of calculation

called “decimals,” because the whole system of numeration

consists of so many tens, of which the first is a type of the

whole.

Completeness of order, marking the entire round of anything,

is, therefore, the ever-present signification of the number ten.

It implies that nothing is wanting; that the number and order

are perfect; that the whole cycle is complete.

The Ten Commandments

The Ten Commandments contain all that is necessary, and

no more than is necessary, both as to their number and their

order, while the Lord’s prayer is complete in ten clauses.

The 10 clauses of the Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s prayer is completed in ten clauses. *

1.The first, God’s sovereignty.

2.The second, God’s manifested Name

3.The third, the realization of God’s kingdom.

4.The fourth first mentions the earth.

5.The fifth, the gift of grace supplying our need.

6.The sixth treats of man’s sin.

7.The seventh pleads for spiritual guidance.

8.The eighth pleads for final deliverance from all evil.

9.The ninth sums up the divine glory (32)

10.The tenth completes the eternal cycles.

* These clauses have the significance of their respective

numbers.

The Tithes

The tithes represent the whole of what was due from man to

God, as marking and recognizing God’s claim on the whole.


The number 10 and redemption

The redemption money was ten gerahs, and thus was

acknowledged both what God claimed, and what man was

responsible to give. Now ten gerahs was half a shekel

(Exodus 30:12-16; Numbers 3:47). Every male that was

numbered, over 20 years of age, must pay this sum and

meet God’s claim. *

* When David numbered the people (2Samuel 24 and

1Chronicles 21), this payment was not made and God’s

claim was not met. Hence the judgment which followed.

But the firstborn were to pay ten times as much; for when

God took the Levites instead of the first-born of Israel, there

were found 22,273 first-born males, but only 22,000 Levites.

So that 273 had to pay the ransom money, which amounted

to ten times ten gerahs. Thus, though the five shekels looked

like a variation, the significance of ten is sustained, for the

five shekels were ten times the “half shekel.” (See Numbers

3:12,13,40-51).

The 10 Plagues of Egypt

The ten plagues were representative of the complete circle of

God’s judgments on Egypt. Exodus 9:14, “I will . . . send all

my plagues.”

The 10 kingdoms controlled by the Antichrist

Antichrist’s world power is comprised in the ten kingdoms,

symbolized by the ten toes on the feet of the image of

Nebuchadnezzar’s dream (Daniel 2:41), and by the ten

horns of the fourth beast of Daniel’s vision (Daniel 7:7,20,24,

etc.; Revelation 12:3, 13:1, 17:3,7,12).

Number 11


If ten marks the perfection of Divine order, then the number

eleven is an addition to it, subversive of and undoing that

order. If twelve is the number which marks the perfection of

Divine government, then 11 falls short of it. So that whether

we regard it as being 10 + 1, or 12 – 1, it is the number which

marks, disorder, disorganization, imperfection, and

disintegration.

The importance of the number eleven is that it signifies

disorder and judgment and is used 24 times in the Bible. The

designation “11th” is used 19 times in scripture. Coming after

10 (law and responsibility), the number 11 represents the

opposite — the irresponsibility of breaking the Law, which

brings disorder and judgment.

In Genesis 11, men rebelled against God and built the tower

of Babel. God judged them by confusing their language,

resulting in chaos. In the eleventh year of Zedekiah, the last

king of Judah, God executed His final judgment against

Judah with the complete destruction of Jerusalem and the

temple and the exile of the remaining Jews to Babylon.

The apostle John saw 11 things in connection with the final

judgment (Revelation 20:12-14).

Number 12

Twelve is a perfect number, signifying perfection of

government, or of governmental perfection. It is found as a

multiple in all that has to do with rule. The sun which “rules”

the day, and the moon and stars which “govern” the night, do

so by their passage through the twelve signs of the Zodiac

which completes the great circle of the heavens of 360 (12 x

30) degrees or divisions, and thus govern the year.


Twelve is the product of 3 (the perfectly Divine and heavenly

number) and 4 (the earthly of what is material and organic).

While seven is composed of 3 added to 4, the number twelve

is 3 multiplied by 4, and hence denotes that which can

scarcely be explained in words, but which the spiritual

perception can at once appreciate, viz., organization, the

products denoting production and multiplication and increase

of all that is contained in the two numbers separately. The 4

is generally prominently seen in the twelve.

The number twelve is found 187 times total in the Bible, 22 of

which are in the book of Revelation.

The significance of the number 12 is that it represents divine

authority and appointment, as well as governmental

foundation and perfection, and shows completeness. Twelve

is also used as a signature of Israel. Truth is symbolized by

144, or 12 x 12.

There are twelve divisions of heaven called the Mazzaroth,

which God uses for signs and seasons. The testimony of the

stars is numerically in harmony with the Bible: “The heavens

declare the glory of God and the firmament shows His

handiwork” (Psalms 19:1).

Number 13

The number thirteen and the enemy of God

The enemies of God and his people, as named in Scripture,

are generally multiples of 13. The primary example of this is

the great enemy himself, Satan. Although we may give the

English for the sake of clearness, the Gematria (the values

formed by the letters of the words themselves) are always

based on the original Hebrew or Greek:

•Satan, in Hebrew = 364 (13 x 28)


•Satan, in Greek = 2197 (133)

•”That old serpent, even Satan” = 2756 (13×212)

•”Ha-Seraph” (Numbers 21:8) = 585 (13×45)

•Beelzebub = 598 (13 x 46)

•Belial – 78 (13×6)

•Dragon (Revelation 12:9) = 975 (13 x 75)

•Serpent = 780 (13×60)

•Murderer = 1820 (13 x 140)

•Tempter = 1053 (13×81)

•The Scape-goat = 585 (13 x 45)

•The Lion (Psalm 91:13) = 338 (13×26)

•”As a Lion” (1Peter 5:8) = 1885 (13 x 145)

•”The Power of the Enemy” (Luke 10:9) = 2509 (13 x 193)

•”Your adversary, the Devil, as a roaring lion” = 6032

(13×464)

•Fowler (Psalm 91:3) = 416 (13×32)

•”Who is called the Devil and Satan” = 2197 (133)

•”Seven Devils” = 572 (13 x 44)

•”Because the Prince of this world is judged” (John 16:11) =

5577 (132×33)

•”When he speaketh a lie he speaketh of his own, for he is a

liar” (John 8:44) = 7072 (13×544)

The longest book name and number 13

The longest name of a Bible book, Thessalonians, is 13

characters.

Additional commentary on the Biblical Meaning of 13 *

The number thirteen is associated with rebellion and

depravity and is used fifteen times in the Bible. All the names

of Satan are divisible by thirteen. Nimrod, the chief rebel

after the flood, was the thirteenth in the line of Ham. In their

thirteenth year of servitude, the kings of the nations rebelled

(Genesis 14:4). Twelve represents the government of


God and thirteen represents the governments of men in

rebellion against God.

Number 666

The number six hundred sixty six is “the number of a name”

(Revelation 13:17-18). When the name of Antichrist is known

its Gematria (substituting numbers for letters) will doubtless

be found to be 666. But this number has, we believe, a far

deeper reference to and connection with the secret

mysteries of the ancient religions, which will be again

manifested in connection with the last great apostasy.

If six is the number of secular or human perfection, then 66 is

a more emphatic expression of the same fact, and 666 is the

concentrated expression of it; six hundred sixty-six is

therefore the triple of human perfection; the perfection of

imperfection; the culmination of human pride in

independence of God and opposition to His Christ.

The number, however, has to be computed, to reckon, to

calculate, not merely to count or enumerate). See Revelation

13:18. Therefore it is not to be known by gematria merely,

though, as we have said, that will be one of the factors in the

calculation, just as the letters in the word Jesus amount to

888.

But 666 was the secret symbol of the ancient pagan

mysteries connected with the worship of the Devil. It is to day

the secret connecting link between those ancient mysteries

and their modern revival in Spiritualism, Theosophy, etc. The

efforts of the great enemy are now directed towards uniting

all into one great whole. The newspapers, worldly and

religious, are full of schemes as to such a union. “Reunion” is

in the air. The societies for the re-union of Christendom, and

the Conferences for the re-union of the Churches, are alike

parts of the same great movement, and are all making for


and are signs of the coming Apostasy. During this age,

“Separation” is God’s word for His people, and is the mark of

Christ; while “union” and “re-union” is the mark of Antichrist.
