BIBLICAL NUMBER 7 AND THE SOON RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST.
Biblical Number Seven and the soon return of Jesus Christ
The number 7 is mentioned over 700 times in the Bible. There is only one number in
Scripture that is mentioned more than seven and that would be one; however, the
tone of 7 seems to be more explicit or detailed as God brings His point across so clear.
According to the Bible "Seven" is complete through the union of earth but only with
the help of heaven. The words complete and finished are connected with the biblical
meaning "Seven." According to Revelation 16:17 the words..."It is done" is also
connected with the biblical meaning of "Seven."
I used to ask myself all the time - why would God use the number 7 so many times
in the book of Revelation (54 to be exact) to surround this writing by the Apostle
John? There are many reasons and little by little I will attempt to make some point
s that perhaps you have never seen before.
The word created is used in Genesis 1:1,1:21,1
;27,2;3 and2;4. It is used "Seven" times when God created the world. Then God rested on the
One of the obvious reasons would be that after Revelation 4:2 the "Seventh"
dispensation starts on planet earth which will be (future tense) as of this writing.
Also there will be a "7" year tribulation right around the "Seventh" millennium.
Do you remember when the "7" years of famine took place in the days of Joseph?
That was the judgment of God.
According to Genesis 7:2 the clean beasts went into the ark i
n "Sevens." According to Genesis 7:9-10 Noah went into the ark and "Seven" days later the flood
came on the earth.
Another point I would like to make is as of the printing of this article there are around
billion people in the world. What I am trying to portray is there are so many sevens
that surround not only this book but end time prophecy which is spoken of in several
accounts of the Bible.
I don't find it coincidental that as all these warning signs are taking place around this
planet we are around the 7 billion person mark.
God is Sovereign and He is very much in perfect control of everything. I always had a
ard time believing this part of the power of God but the more I study biblical subjects
such as this the less I doubt that Jesus Christ is above time and controls it from
beginning to end.
The 6000th verse in the Old Testament of the King James Version says, "Then Joshua
called the twelve men, whom he had prepared of the children of Israel, out of every
tribe a man." Joshua 4:4 shows the readers that he is a type of Jesus Christ and this
verse was a foreshadowing of Jesus Christ choosing the 144,000 Jewish people from
the twelve tribes of Israel right around the end of 6000 years in the Bible from Adam
moving forward into the redemptive plan of God for planet earth.
I am not saying this will be exact but I am not saying it won't. I do not believe this
world is 6000 years old because fallen angels were cast out of Paradise and inhabited
planet earth before Genesis chapter one. My writing on the "Division of Two"
explains all the verses for this logic that the Bible so clearly explains in a very simple way.
Would you like to know what the 7000th verse of the Old Testament in the King
James Version says? In the book of Judges which is the "7th" book of the Bible I
is so exact. "And they said, Arise, that we may go up against them: For we have
seen the land, and, behold, it is very good: and are ye still? be not slothful to go
, and to enter to possess the land." Judges 18:9.This is amazing!
The Word of God is so perfect. In the 6000th verse of the Bible Joshua (a type of
Jesus Christ) preludes what Jesus Christ will do at the end of 6000 years (maybe
exact or perhaps approximate) inside the perimeters of the 7 year tribulation
period. The 7000th verse of the Bible is in the "Seventh" book.
In the 7000th verse (Joshua 18:9) Israel is entering the promised land. From a
pivotal role in the 6000th verse (the calling of the 144,000 Jewish men) to the
hope and promise of rest for Israel in the millennium.
There are so many tones of Armageddon and God giving Israel the victory in
this verse that I actually felt like I was reading Revelation chapter 19.
In Judges 18:9 which is the 7000th verse of the Bible Israel is under the canopy
of chapter 18 which is the number for bondage. That is exactly what Jesus Christ
is going to do. He is going to deliver Israel out of bondage so they can enter the
promised land in peace.
Remember Melchizedek is spoken of in Psalm 110:4 which is the servant candle
Psalm (middle) of Psalms 107 through 113 foreshadowing the 7 year tribulation
period. I know I mentioned this before but I think it is worth repeating. Melchizedek
is at the very least a type of Jesus Christ. Some Bible experts believe Melchizedek
is Jesus Christ Himself.
There are "7" verses in Psalm 110 and Melchizedek is mentioned in the 4th verse.
Not only is Psalm 110 a servant candle chapter (Psalms 107-113) but verse 4 is a
servant candle verse out of "7" in Psalm 110. Only God Himself could design a
servant candle within a servant candle. No human being could do that. This is th
e signature of God juxtapostioned in Scripture.
Since there are 54 "Sevens" in the book of Revelation. It is almost as if God is saying
that He is going to perfect this world through His Son Jesus Christ. Remember 7
means perfection and completion.
According to Leviticus 8:31-36 Aaron and all his sons
had to be consecrated for "Seven" days before they started their priestly duties.The redemptive
work of Jesus Christ is "Complete' but this passage of the Bible is showing us that we must be
dedicated to God for service and living clean before Him. God is holy and we are to be living holy lives before God.
Psalm 107 starts the fifth book of the Psalms which speaks of grace and the Kingdom
. The theme of this Psalm is "Oh that men would praise the Lord." According to
Dr.J.R.Church this particular Psalm is giving a panorama of the history of Israel from A.D. 70 to the second advent of Jesus Christ.
Verses 1-8 talk about the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans and the Diaspora
of the Jews. Verses 9 through 15 talk about the suffering from the late eighteen
hundreds until 1948 when God delivered Israel unto their land. Verses 16 through
21 take the reader from 1948 to the beginning of the 7 year tribulation period.
Verses 22 through 31 take the reader into the second half of the tribulation period.
This is the section of Psalm 107 that has 6 inverted Hebrew Nuns with the
"Seventh" being bracketed before verse 40. The last fifth section (grace) o
f Psalm 107 describes Israel at the end of the 7 year tribulation period and
moving into a victory at the start of the reign and rule of Jesus Christ. I hope
I am motivating people out there on internet land to read the Bible.
"The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall
stand for ever." Isaiah 40:8.
Psalm 107 gives an overview of the history of Israel from 70 A.D. to the end
of the 7 year tribulation period. Psalms 107 through 113 ("Seven" Psalms)
give the design and evidence of this soon coming testing for Israel better
known as Jacob's trouble. Jeremiah 30:7. Do you think God is trying to make
a point? The reason why I went a little off the subject is because I pointed
out that there are 7 verses in Psalm 110. I wanted to expound on that principle
of "Seven" and show you how perfect the Bible is because God wrote the Word of God.
As I have stated several times the book of Revelation is surrounded by "Sevens."
The seven churches, the seven stars and even the judgments are in sets of "Seven.
" There are "Seven" feast days and there are "Seven" branches of the Candlestick
. The Tabernacle in the Holy Place is where this "Seven" was housed. God wanted
to show His "Complete" light for our soul. This is the God we worship and serve
. I hope your faith in Jesus Christ just got stronger. It dawned on me that every
equation leading up to "Seven" speaks of the perfection and completion of God.
I can see why God would end the last book of the Bible with "Sevens."
6 (the number of man) +1 (the Sovereignty of God) =7 (Perfection and Completion).
2 (Division) +5 (Grace) =7( perfection and completeness). 4 (the perfect world
number) +3 (the perfect divine number) =7. Think about this combination.
Earth (4) with the perfect help of heaven (3) computes to divine completion
and perfection (7). For me it is hard to doubt the divine design of God.
It is the next 3 verses that I really want you to look at very closely. "(10)
And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish:
because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.
(11) And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they
should believe a lie: (12) That they all might be dammed who believe
not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." 2nd Thes.2:10-12.
This is why if you never accepted Jesus Christ as your very own personal
Savior and Lord it is so important to make that decision today/tonight
wherever you may be in the world. Much false unity and deception
will take place around the world in the form of politics and religion
because that is exactly what Revelation chapter 13 teaches.
If a person rejects the truth of God then they are prime for deception
. The closeness of the hour would have to be obvious. The question
anybody would have to ask is, "Am I ready to go up to heaven in the
rapture of the church?" The great snatch (the catching away of the
Christians) is reserved for true Believers in Jesus Christ. The Blessed
Hope is one event you will not want to miss! I believe this could happen
at any moment.
"(9)That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine
heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved."
"(10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confessio
n is made unto salvation." Romans 10:9-10.
