Biblical Numerics


Numbers have a great significance in the Bible. Many preachers and many teachers of the Bible fail to notice God's use of numbers or just do not bother to teach this truth. Because the significance of numbers in the Bible has been ignored by the church, Satan has claimed authority in the use of numbers with his own twisted, distorted, counterfeit use of number and ensnaring many people into believing in a false Numerology. Because numerology is more associated with the occult and psychics, the church has thrown the baby out with the bath water and completely turned away from the significance of God's use of numbers. I will talk about numbers and how they relate to the Bible. With anything we use or come into contact with in our lives; God should always remain our number one and complete source of our faith and trust.

ONE: It is the perfect symbol of unity. The number one is what we call the ordinal number of primacy. God is in the prime position also. He rules, he reigns, and he has all power. God is made up of no other number. Every other number is made up of one (it is in every other number), the number one needs nothing else to make it complete just like God does not need anything else to make him complete.

TWO: The first number we come to that can be divided, it represents division or difference or the second witness; second opinion or another point of view. On the second day of creation, the waters were divided from the waters by the firmament (division) It speaks of differences, i.e. heaven and hell, good and evil, life and death, saints and sinners.

THREE: In the Bible 3 is always the number of divine manifestation = The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The 3 basic attributes of God- He is omniscient (all knowing) omnipresent (everywhere present), omnipotent (all powerful). Time is divided into 3 parts = past, present, and future. All of creation reflects Triune nature of God. He created 3 kingdoms of matter = animal, vegetable, mineral. Three forms in which matter exists = solid, liquid, and gas. Three things that last forever = faith, hope, and love.

FOUR: is always the world number. It is the number that speaks to the international scene. In our physical world there are 4 directions = north, south, east, and west. There are 4 seasons = spring, summer, fall, and winter. In Genesis 2:10 there are 4 heads of the river coming out of the Garden of Eden and symbolically heading towards the ends of the earth.

FIVE: Is always the number of grace. In Exodus 13:18 it tells us the children of Israel came out of Egypt "harnessed." Actually, in Hebrew (the language the Old Testament was written in) says that they came out "ranked in fives." They came out in fives because it was the grace of God that delivered them from Egypt. David chose 5 smooth stones to defeat Goliath. God has a five fold ministry = apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, teachers (Ephesians 4:7-11). The Tabernacle was a picture of the grace of God. The Holy Anointing Oil used to anoint the Tabernacle had 5 components = myrrh, sweet cinnamon, sweet calmus, cassia, and olive oil (Exodus 30:23-24).

SIX: Is the number of man. Man was created on the sixth day. Six is short of seven which we will see represents perfection. So man is forever incomplete until he meets Christ and becomes complete in him. In Revelation the number 666 is speaking of the satanic trinity = the devil, the anti-Christ, and the false prophet. In Genesis 18 Abraham asks the Lord 6 times to spare the city of Sodom. NOTE when man(6) asks or seeks help from man(6) instead of God in effect leaning on the arm of flesh: 6x6=36. If you add all the numbers 1 through 36, that is the totality of man's help, and you get 666.

SEVEN: Is always the number of perfection or completion. The creative week was completed in 7 days. There are 7 last sayings as Jesus completing his work on the cross. Jesus performed 7 miracles during his ministry. In revelation, which is the story of the completion of God's plan, there are 7 messages to the churches- 7 seals- 7 trumpets- 7 vials, 7- judgments.

EIGHT: is always the number of new beginnings. Noah's ark carried 8 people through the flood to a new beginning. Males in Israel were circumcised on the 8th day- symbolic of a new covenant, a new relationship with God. When Jesus revealed himself in a new way on the Mount of Transfiguration, Luke says it was 8 days after he had told his disciples he was the Messiah and had spoken of his death.

TEN: It is the number of human responsibility. There were 10 plagues in Egypt. There were 10 virgins who represent our responsibility, our purpose to the kingdom of God. Man has 10 fingers representing our work for God and 10 toes in order to walk with God.

TWELVE: Is the number of divine government. There were 12 patriarchs, 12 tribes, 12 judges of Israel. There were 12 Apsotles. There were 12 legions of angels (at least) that Jesus could have called upon - speaking of God's authority and rulership. The New Jerusalem - the seat of God's kingdom will have 12 foundations, 12 gates, 12 pearls, and is 12,000 furlongs in length, breadth, and height.
***Leslie Hale**

When you are reading the Bible or studying on your own, look for these numbers and see do they have any significance to what you are reading. I found that the knowledge of these numbers help me to see that God is not random as most people believe. Every thing he does and says has purpose if not at that particular instant than for a particular time to come.

In my family the number 3 plays an important part in our lives. When I see the number three represented at least 2 times I pause and pay attention. If the number three comes up three times, I know God wants my attention. I have 3 daughters all born the 3rd month of the year all with a representation of 3 in the day of the month. I fast for three days to see manifestation of God in my life or to receive clarity or conformation of a direction. I met a man and he said the number 3 at least 3 times and I am waiting on God to show me what I need to know or do with this particular person. Me and my daughters are getting the number three tattoo soon because it represents our family unit so well and always make us reflect on the will of God and the role Jesus and the Holy Spirit has played in our lives.

 Numerology is a tool useful in your walk with God also for growth and maturity in the word. Do not become a worshiper of numerology, but know all things are created and used by God for purpose.
