Numbers



And Their Meanings

The following numbers correspond to the meanings found in the Bible. This Biblical tool, Numerology, in its purest sense, brings forth and clarifies that which is written. Certainly its brevity indicates only a partial listing, hithertofore, the wise do not idolize but build knowledge and then wisdom.

Some examples from The Companion Bible:

FOUR - Denotes creative works, and always has reference to the material creation, as pertaining to the earth, and things "under the sun", and things terrestrial.

SEVEN - Denotes spiritual perfection. It is the hall-mark of the Holy Spirit's work. He is the Author of God's Word, and seven is stamped on it as the water mark is seen in the manufacture of paper. He is the Authorand Giver of life; and seven is the number which regulates every period of Incubation and Gestation, in insects, birds, animals, and man.

EIGHT - Denotes resurrection, regeneration; a new beginning or commencement. The eighth is a new first. Hence the octave in music, colour, days of the week. It is the number which has to do with the Lord, Who rose on the eighth, or new "first-day". This is, therefore, the Dominical number. By Gematria (the addition of the numerical value of the letters together) the Greek letters for Jesus makes the numbers 888. It, or its multiple is impressed on all that has to do with the Lord's Names, the Lord's People, and the Lord's works.

For further numeric study, I invite you to get any book by Bonnie Gaunt. Her work with Gematria is excellent. My favorite is "Beginnings".

For a differnt type of numeric study of the Bible, Ivan Panin is unsurpassed in discovering the numeric schemes of the Bible. This study has nothing to do with the letter values, like gematria, but demonstates clearly God's hand in the writing of the Bible. Bible Numerics is a good place to start.

E. W. Bullinger has done some work with the numbers of the Bible; I only have his book "The Gospel in the Stars", so can't recommend him from personal experience. Sorry.
