Bible Numbers And Their Meaning.

“Thus the heavens and the earth, and all the host of them, were FINISHED.  And on the SEVENTH day God ended His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done. Then God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it, because in it He rested from all His work which God had created and made.”
Genesis 2:1-3
Numbers play a huge part in the Bible.  Ask anybody if they’ve ever heard of the number 666, for instance, and most know it has something to do with the end times.  They may even know it refers to the AntiChrist.  They would be correct.
The meaning of numbers is not a recent discovery or some western invention.  For centuries, the Jewish rabbis have known of this phenomenon and been well-acquainted with the fact that numbers have specific meanings in scripture.  They may not have had the full revelation as we do, but they certainly knew of it.  In Hebrew, it is called, “Gematria.”
Not Numerology.
God does everything “by the numbers,” so to speak.  Their primary function is to tell the incomparable story of Jesus.  But they also give us a glimpse into the way God thinks.  You see, He does things in patterns; very complex patterns, of course, but patterns nonetheless.
However, Numbers are there to reveal to us deeper truths, not to make us superstitious. Numerology this ain’t!  Bible numerics unveil Divine truths and serve as sign posts that point to prophetic events both of the Messiah and the last days.

The Number 6.

6 in Bible Numerics is the number of man.  There are 6 different names for man in the Bible:  4 in Hebrew, 2 in Greek.  God created man on the 6th day.   That’s why 666 is the number of AntiChrist.  During the tribulation, he will be the ultimate evil man, possessed by satan himself.

But the triple sixes also indicate we are living in the last days.  For instance:  Israel, God’s timepiece so to speak, came back as a nation in 1948.  But they didn’t get their whole land back all at once.  They didn’t have their Capitol:  Jerusalem.

In June of 1967 during the six-day war, they were attacked by Egypt, Jordan, and Syria.  At the end of it, they got back Jerusalem.  The last time a victory as significant was won was when Joshua led the Israelites around Jericho for six days.

Do you see the triple 6’s?  June is the 6th month, the 60’s are the 6th decade, and the war lasted 6 days:  666.  It’s an indicator that, indeed, we are living in the last days.

How God Counts Time.

Now, God counts time “a bit” differently than us.  A “day” to Him, Who is not time-confined like us, is “as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.”  (See 2 Peter 3:8)  God said to Adam back in Genesis, “6 days shalt thou labor and do all thy work.”  In so saying, He was giving man 6,000 years to see how he would handle the responsibilities of stewardship over the earth.  As you can see, we have made a total mess out of it.  The good news is that, by His reckoning, our “lease,” as it were, of this earth is just about up!  


At the wedding in Cana of Galilee, Jesus had servants fill 6 earthen vessels with water which He turned into wine.  One of the pictures this paints is of you and I, human earthen vessels made out of clay, being filled with the water of the word by God’s servants.  The one who fills you with water can be you, your pastor, your friend, a grace-based book, or from whoever you heard the word. Jesus comes along, transforms that water of the word into the wine for us and anoints us to do His work.  Though we cannot transform ourselves, we can see to it that we fill our vessels with the water of the word.

In the story of David and Goliath, the giant is a type of satan the in the Bible.  He is also a depiction of the AntiChrist.  For example:  He was 6 cubits tall, had on 6 pieces of armor and his javelin weighed 600+ shekels.  There you see the triple 6’s.

As Goliath is a type of the AntiChrist, so David is a type of Christ in His defeat of the devil.  He is also prophetic of Modern Israel in the last days.  You can see it so clearly where he says something very telling to King Saul in 1 Samuel 17:37

Prophecies Concerning Modern Israel.

“Moreover David said, “The LORD, who delivered me from the paw of the LION and from the paw of the BEAR.  He will deliver me from the hand of this PHILISTINE.”

Before Christ returns to earth in His second coming, Israel will face three enemies:  The Lion, the Bear and Goliath: The AntiChrist.

Here’s some history of which you may be unaware.  During the years WW2 was raging, the British were in control of the land which later became modern Israel.  Many Jewish people attempted to flee from Nazi persecution by trying to enter Palestine.  Sadly, they were turned away by the British, many to their death.  It was a very unfortunate event and was a big mistake that Great Britain made as a nation.  In essence, they were inadvertently sentencing God’s people to death.
This does not in the least reflect on God’s people in Great Britain who are blood-washed, born again believers.  But because of that mistake their NATION made, they began to wane as a world power.  From that point on, they surrendered colony after colony to the indigenous peoples.  
What is the national symbol of Great Britain?  THE LION.
The Bear.
After the Lion, David was delivered by God from the paw of the BEAR.  What nation does the bear represent?  RUSSIA.  
Back when this was written, Russia was nothing more than a disconnected collection of tribes.  It certainly was not a nation or a world power.  In our day and age, however, that has all changed.  The scattered tribes of people has become a nation hell-bent on world domination.  
In the map pictured below, a straight red line has been drawn.  Notice that directly North of Jerusalem is Moscow.  In these last days, we have seen Russia, “The Bear,” coming down from “The land of the North” along with her allies. They are even now at the border of Israel, just like Ezekiel 38 predicted they would be.  
At some point, she and her allies will try and attack Israel.  God’s people, as David long ago, will be delivered from the paw of the BEAR.  This great enemy along with all with her allies will be destroyed on the mountains of Israel.  This will happen very soon.  The stage is set, the players are in motion, the curtain is about to go up, and the house lights have been flicker indicating the show is about to start!  

The Number 13.
Now let’s look at the number 13.  Somewhere along the way, it has come to take on a superstitious meaning.  Not so in Bible Numerics.
The first time any subject is mentioned in scripture, there is something significant for us to study and learn.  The first time 13 is mentioned, there was a war involving ancient Elam.  This country is located somewhtere in the area we know today as Iran.  Considering all we are hearing about Iran in the news these day, this connects more than a few “dots.”  Rebellion seems to stem from that part of the world.
During this aforementioned ancient war, there were five kings against four.  It “coincidentally” occurred in the 13th year of the reign of the King of Elam, Chedorlaomer.  The account documents that there was a rebellion.  That’s why the number 13 means “rebellion.”  (See Genesis 14:4).  
You and I don’t need to be afraid of or superstitious about the number 13.  There is nothing magical or mystical about any number.  So, if you’re planning an event and there is no other date available, don’t worry.  Nothing will happen to you.  Our God always takes care of us no matter what the day or the date.  Greater is He Who is in us than he that is in the world. AMEN!  
We don’t need to go around living our lives in fear of any number.  Remember, Jesus came to set us free, not put us in bondage.  
God’s Favorite Numbers.
Does God have any favorite numbers?  Why yes, He does!  Throughout the Bible, the numbers 35 and 7 are most prevalent.  3, of course, is Abba’s favorite number!  After all, His Son was raised back to life on the third day after paying for our redemption!  It was a great day for all of us!  
(Anyone is interested in more on the topic of the third day, please follow the link below: 
The Number 3.
There are so many 3’s in scripture and in nature, which God created.  We have one God but three persons:  Father, Son and Holy Spirit.  Man, who is made in His image, is triparteid:  Body, soul and spirit.  Time is comprised of three parts: Past, present and future.  Matter is three dimensional:  Length, width and height… get the idea.

The Number 5.
5 is the number of Grace.  How do we know that?  God has given us lots of little clues!
The 5th time Noah’s name was mentioned it says “Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”  The fifth time Ruth’s name is mentioned, she found grace in the eyes of Boaz.
In the Tabernacle of Moses, built to God’s specifications, every measurement of it is in multiples of 5.  The entire structure is a picture of our Lord Jesus, the perfect Man, FULL OF GRACE!! 
For more amazing information on its construction, please follow the link below:
John said of Jesus, when He walked this earth, that He was “Full of grace and truth.”  There are many things written about Jesus that contain the number five.  He fed 5,000 men He using 5 loaves and two fish.  He had them sit in groups of 50.  He then did 5 things:  
1) He took the loaves and fish, 2) Looked up to heaven, 3) Blessed the bread, 4) Broke the loaves, 5) Gave them to His disciples.  
In the story of the Prodigal son, when he came home at last, the father saw (1), the father had compassion (2), the father ran (3), the father embraced him (4), the father kissed him (5).  
There are countless examples of how full of Grace are our Father and Our Savior but they are too numerous to recount here.  As you read through the Bible, though, notice not just actual numbers but things like you’ve just read.  You will be filled with love for the Daddy Who loved us SO much that He sent His Beloved Son, Jesus, Who is full of Grace
The Number 7.
7 is used more than any other number.  It is the number of perfection or completeness.  From Genesis to Revlation and all over creation, 7 is everywhere. It is like Daddy’s fingerprint.  It proves without a doubt that we were created by God, we didn’t spring from apes, as you’ll see in a moment.
On the 7th day God says in Genesis 1 that He “rested” from all His work,” not because He was tired, but because it was “complete: finished.”  
The first time 7 is mentioned we find the words “rest”  and “perfection” mentioned.

The 7th time Noah’s name was mentioned it says that Noah was “perfect in his generations”.   In Hebrew, the word “perfect” is “Tammin.”  This is the same word used by the priests who inspected the animals offered for temple sacrifices to make sure there was no defect; in other words, physically perfect:  Tammim.  God was referring to his “physical body.”  Plainly speaking, his body had no trace of demon DNA.  

“Demon what” you say?  Demon DNA.  There were only demon/human hybrids left on earth outside of Noah and his family when the flood hit.  They were the only ones left that were fully human.  Incredible, I know, but true.

If this is a new concept to you and you’d like more information about these hybrid humans, or “Nephilim,” please follow the link below:

God’s Stamp On Creation.

The very first verse in the entire Bible, Genesis 1:1, is 7 words in Hebrew and there are 28 letters in the sentence.  28 = 7X4:  7 is the number of competition;” 4 is the number of creation.”  Is this God’s book or what?!

7 is stamped all over creation.  There are 7 colors of the rainbow.  The cycle of the moon is 28 days:  7×4.  
Why 7?  Why not 6 or 8?  Because God has stamped His mark on all of creation.  It is proof that none of this is an accident.  The earth didn’t “happen” to be just the right distance away from the sun so as not to either not freeze or burn up: God placed it here on purpose.  All of the stars, the planets and solar systems move and work in perfect harmony according to His design.  
The Last Book.
In the final book of the Bible, Revelation, the number 7 is, well, EVERYWHERE.  There are 7 churches, 7 angels and 7 trumpets.  We have 7 vials of judgment, 7 blessings for the believer promised by Jesus, 7 expressions of the Lord Jesus Christ, 7 spirits of God. 
Other Appearances Of The Number 7.
Joshua went around Jericho for 7 days.  The first 6 days, they went around once each day.  But on the 7th day they marched around it 7 times.  Then at his command, they all shouted and the walls fell. 
Peter came to Jesus one time and asked, “Lord, how often should I forgive my brother?  7 times?”  I guess he thought that sounded like a lot.  But Jesus told him to forgive his brother 70X7.  
Just in case you’re keeping track of just how much your brother or sister sins against you and you reach the 489th time, if you think that the 490th time is their last chance, you’ve missed what God is saying.  Yes, 70X7=490.  But in Bible numerics, 70X7 is the number of perfection. He’s saying, “Keep on forgiving completely until you are perfect in heaven.”  There is no such thing as never forgiving.  If God asks you to perfectly forgive your brother, will He do any less for you?  No!

God’s Fingerprints.

God’s fingerprints are all over us, too. Your body, for instance, works on a cycle of 7.  Every seven years your cells totally renew themselves.  Wanna stay young longer?  Immerse yourself in God’s word.  It is life and health to ALL YOUR FLESH according to Proverbs 4:22.

Renewed Like The Eagle.
God fills our mouth with good things so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s.  This is a literal, physical renewal.  
You see, when an old eagle’s feathers become ragged and tattered, he will fly up to a very high, secluded place, pluck out his beak then pluck out his talons when the beak has grown back.  Finally, he will pluck out all his feathers and wait until new ones grow in.  This process takes about 5 months during which the bird is completely helpless.  When it’s young, new feathers, beak and talons have grown back, it flies off.  New body; old mind!  
That’s what God’s word does for us.  He continually renews us with His Word which He puts IN OUR MOUTHS, which means “speak it out!”
Seven In Your DNA.
You can see God’s signature all over our physical bodies.  There are 7 bones in your neck, 7 bones in your head, 7 holes in your head, 7 bones in your ankle. Medical science tells us your heart beats slower one day out of 7 because God has designed you to rest  one day out of 7.  That doesn’t mean sitting home doing nothing.  God designed us to rest by having fellowship with other believers and worshipping the Lord.  It’s the best kind of rest!
Christian women are called “daughters of Sarah,” in 1 Peter 3.  We are not called daughters of Ruth or Naomi or Esther or any other great woman of God because Sarah is the only woman in the Bible to LITERALLY have her youth renewed.  
In her nineties a heathen King wanted her for his harem.  He wasn’t the kind of man who sensed things “spiritually” and he wasn’t nearsighted, in case you wondered.  No.  He looked on her OUTWARD appearance.  She wasn’t an old, shriveled up, way-past-her-expiration-date woman.  Harems are filled with young, beautiful women.  Her youth had literally been renewed so that she could carry her son, Isaac, for nine months.  
When women in the body of Christ walk in faith, God will renew their youth like the eagle’s!  Hebrews 11 alludes to Sarah’s renewal.  In the Greek it says, “…by faith Sarah received “dunamís: strength” to conceive seed.”  That strength she received to conceive seed also renewed her physical body.
Cycles Of 7.
Speaking of which, a woman carries her baby in cycles of 7.  The gestation period for a human baby is 9 months. That’s 40 weeks or 280 days. 280 is 7×40.  A hen carries her young for 21 days–7×3; cats, 56 days–7×8; dogs: 63 days–7×9.  The Lion, 98 days–7×14.  See?  All are cycles of 7.  GOD’S FINGERPRINTS are everywhere!
7 Spirits Of God.
As for the 7 spirits of God, in Isaiah 11 it says, ““There shall come forth a Rod from the stem of Jesse, And a Branch shall grow out of his roots. The Spirit of the LORD (1) shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom (2) and understanding (3),  The Spirit of counsel (4) and might (5), The Spirit of knowledge (6) and of the fear of the LORD (7).”  Isaiah 11:1-2. These are also mentioned in Revelation.
The central and most important is the Spirit of the LORD:  YAHWEH:  The covenant-keeping One.
Next we have the spirit of wisdom and the spirit of understanding.  These two go hand in hand.  They manifest in us as a word of wisdom or a word of knowledge.  They are the “knowing gifts.”‘ They allow Moms and Dads to parent their children effectively, a pastor to shepherd his Church or a businessman to conduct his affairs well.  God drops into your mind a word of wisdom or knowledge for your particular situation supernaturally.
Then we have the spirit of council and might.  These are the power gifts.  1 Corinthians 12 enumerates them for us:  Gifts of faith, healings and working of miracles.
Finally we have the spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.  The fear of the LORD if you study it always has to do with your tongue.  If you fear God, keep your tongue from evil.  That’s how the fear of the LORD is manifested.

These are the 7 rays of God’s Spirit, and God wants us FULL of the Holy Spirit!  
History’s Divisions.
Last, but not least, God has divided up all of history into 7’s.  From the present to the time of Jesus, 2,000 years have come and gone.  From Jesus to Abraham was a span of 2,000 years, and from Abraham to Adam, another 2,000 years. We are fast approaching the to the time of the 1,000-year rule of our Lord Jesus’ on the 7th “day: the 7th thousand-year period” since God created the earth.  
Under man’s rule these past 6 “days” there has been nothing but distress.  But when Jesus returns to rule this earth there will be nothing but REST.  HALLELUJAH!!!
(Jesus returns with His saints)
Israel and Jerusalem In The News.
This is why Israel and Jerusalem are always in the news.  They are the focal point of all history because, when Jesus returns, He will rule the world with righteousness and justice; not from Rome, Paris, London or Washington.  From His Capitol:  Jerusalem.  
Jesus came as a Jew.  He’s the One Who slew the dragon, that over-sized snake.  The devil knows that, when Jesus returns and sits on the throne of His father, David, at last, his goose is cooked.
That’s why he hates Jerusalem and hates the Jews.  That’s why he has instigated all his cronies to try and wipe them off the face of the earth.  He’s trying to prevent the second coming, thinking (something he doesn’t do well) that he can avert his fate.  He doesn’t know he’s ALREADY LOST THE WAR.
What a wonderful Abba we have!  He wants to bless you and I through the understanding of Bible Numerics.
