Today if the Lord be willing I want to point out a few things pertaining to the number seven.
It's my hope and prayer that as the people listen to these studies to do with Bible number meanings, that folks would realize that only an omniscient God could have put these numbers together as such, as I've said before, no man or any group of men could have come together and devised such a great exhibition of unshakable facts, be reminded that the Bible was written by forty or more men, over a period of almost sixteen hundred years, it was impossible for these men to even communicate among them selves, and not only do the Bible number meanings present infallible proof of God's existence, but every subject in the Bible, and there are many subjects, but none of the writers ever contradicted another, what a Book we have, and it will never ever change. So let the heathen rage and scoff all they care to, we have read the last page.
The only thing in the world that can not be changed is TRUTH, and Jesus is Truth.
John 14:6 I am the way, the TRUTH and the life, no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Seven carries the meaning of COMPLETENESS and Spiritual PERFECTION.
Seven was the most sacred number to the Hebrew people; seven is used more than all other numbers in the Word of God, other than the number ONE.
SEVEN is found 763 times, ONE is found 2371 times in our KJ Bible.
In the Book of the Revelation the number SEVEN is found throughout. There are SEVEN churches, SEVEN spirits, SEVEN stars, SEVEN seals, SEVEN trumpets, SEVEN vials, SEVEN personages, SEVEN dooms, and SEVEN new things, that's 63 SEVENS in the Revelation alone.---when we add six and three together we have NINE, NINE is the number of THE FRUIT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.
2 Timothy 3:16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, --
SEVEN symbolizes Spiritual Perfection. All of life revolves around this number. The entire Word of God is founded upon the number SEVEN. It stands for the SEVENTH day of the Creation Week, and also speaks of the Millennial Rest day. (1000 year reign of Christ, the SEVENTH thousand years) It denotes COMPLETENESS or PERFECTION.
In Lev.23:15-16 the number SEVEN and the Sabbath, which was the SEVENTH day, (our Saturday) is connected with the word COMPLETE, the word COMPLETE follows after the words "SEVEN SABBATH". The day following the SEVENTH Sabbath there was something NEW that took place. Listen as I read.
Leviticus 23:15-16 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, (Sunday,1st day) from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete:** (49 days) 16Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering** unto the LORD.
The word FINISHED is also connected with the number SEVEN. In Revelation 10:7 we read,
"--in the days of the voice of the SEVENTH angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be FINISHED."--- The word "finished" is connected with the word SEVENTH-angel.
"It is DONE" is another expression found in connection with the number SEVEN.
Revelation 16:17 And the seventh angel poured out his vial into the air; and there came a great voice out of the temple of heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done. It is "complete".
The Savior spoke SEVEN times from the cross, and the SEVETH time He said,"IT IS FINISHED" --complete.
* Jesus first recorded words in the gospel of Luke are found in
Luke 2:49 And he said unto them, How is it that ye sought me? wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?
* And His last recorded words in the gospel of John was
John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
So Jesus finished, He completed, the Fathers work that He was sent to do, die on the cross and pay every mans sin debt, every person from Adam unto the last sinner in the millennium sin debt has been paid, but the sad, sad truth is that most people will reject His payment, therefore they'll be paying the sin debt them selves forever, that is one debt that no body within them selves can pay off.
The word CREATED is used SEVEN times in connection with God's creative work, [apart from Him creating man and the living creatures.] (Genesis 1:1; l: 21; 1:27 (three times); 2:3; and 2:4).
He appointed SEVEN days for the week, and most, if not all advanced nations reckon "time in that way: SEVEN days to the week.
