Synthia Esther's Summary notes from the book:
"Biblical Mathematics - Keys to Scripture Numerics" - Evangelist Ed. F. Vallowe, 1998, The Olive Press.
Our infinite Holy God, has provided a precision of numerical wonders throughout the Holy Bible and all of creation. Take for example, the snowflake filled with ice crystals each of which having a defined symmetrical plan. God knows each of His created stars by name (Psalm 147:4-5).
His most prized creation being humanity, in which no two palm prints are alike. Even the very hairs on our head are all numbered by God (Matthew 10:30). God has coded the Bible with numerical significance. The study of which is most often referred to as "Gematria".
This short summary provides a "brief" reference of a few noted numbers within the Bible and their meaning. Hundreds of Bible scriptures could be offered in support of the general use of certain numbers in the Bible, which are well documented in many books by noted scholars.
ONE - UNITY WITH GOD, JESUS CHRIST:
"I and My Father are One" - John 10:30. "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are One"- 1 John 5:7. "That they all may be One; as Thou, Father, are in Me, and I in Thee, that they may be one with in us...and the glory which Thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one even as we are One" - John 17:21-22.
Only by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior can we become "one" with Him (John 3:16-17).
Please reference the sacrepursuit.org website page: A Free Gift - which outlines God's salvation plan, the way, the truth, and promise of God (John 14:6). Also take note of the web page: "Oneness - Gaia - New Age" to learn more about the occult - Satanic New World Order plan of "oneness", which is the complete opposite of God's ordained, Holy plan.
THREE - RESURRECTION, DIVINE COMPLETENESS AND PERFECTION:
Three is the number of the Trinity, Father, Son, Holy Spirit. The Gospel of Christ is three-fold, being the death, burial, and resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). Man was created by God with a three-part nature: Body (physical), Soul (mind, will, emotions), and Spirit (the spark of life God breathed into human flesh - Genesis 2:7; Job 33:4).
In nature there are three kingdoms: Animal, Vegetable, and Mineral. Matter has three forms, Gas, Liquid, and Solid. The Force of Nature has three expressions: Gravitation, light, and Electricity. Time has three parts: Past, Present, and Future. The Earth's History and the coming of Earth's final restoration has been defined by God and divided into three ages, The Antediluvian, Present, and Millennial age.
FIVE - GOD'S GOODNESS AND GRACE:
There were five offerings upon the Altar of Sacrifice made before the Lord. The burnt offering (Leviticus 7:8). The Peace offering through the blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross of Calvary (Colossians 1:20; Ephesians 2:14-17). The Sin offering: Christ bearing our judgement for sins on the Cross of Calvary (1 Peter 2:24; 3:18; Psalm 22; Isaiah 53), also noted as the righteous requirements of the law (Leviticus 4:1-35; 6:25-30). The Trespass offering Christ's death provided for every effect of sin, against God and one's neighbor (Leviticus 5:1-19; 6:1-7).
The Meat offering, which is referenced as Christ as the perfect human, without sin, a fragrant life unto God (Matthew 3:17), the oil, being a reference to Christ's anointing of the Spirit for His ministry (Matthew 1:18-23), the oven a reference of the last three hours of Christ's suffering on the Cross (Psalm 22; Hebrews 2:18). The ultimate pain and sacrifice suffering at the hands of those He came to save (Matthew 27:27-31).
SIX - MAN'S WEAKNESS, EVILS OF SATAN, MANIFESTATION OF SIN:
Man was created on the sixth day, his days of labor was six (Genesis 1:24-31; Exodus 20:8-11). The number six also references Satan's temptation power and man's weakness. The Sixth character in the bible is the Serpent which represents Satan, the Devil (Revelation 12:9; 20:2).
Daniel 3:1-30, provides Biblical reference to man's desire to worship man's creation over God, when a Golden Image, was erected. This Golden Image was made with the number "six" used in dimensions being sixty cubits high and six cubits broad. All of which is a prophetic reference to the end times Tribulation Period when the "Image of the Beast" will be worshiped by the unsaved (Revelation 13:3-18). Six hundred is connected with warfare (Exodus 14:7). Six Hundred Sixty-Six - 666- being referenced by God as the number of the "Image of the Beast" (Revelation 13:8). Revelation 17:14, outlines both the number of the beast - "666", and war - "6", with the Lamb.
SEVEN - COMPLETENESS, SPIRITUAL PERFECTION:
The entire word of God is founded on the number Seven - 7. Jesus said to forgive seventy times Seven (Matthew 18:22). The word "created" is used Seven times in connection with God's creations (Genesis 1:1; 1:21; 1:27 (three times), 2:3; 2:4).
God rested on the Seventh day (Genesis 2:1-3). Noah took the clean beasts into the ark by sevens (Genesis 7:2). Seven days after Noah went into the ark the flood came (Genesis 7:9-10). Peter proclaimed the long suffering of God waiting in the days of Noah (1 Peter 3:21). Before Aron and his sons eneted into their duties of work for the Lord they were consecrated Seven days (Leviticus 8:31-36).
On the day of atonement the high priest sprinkled the blood upon and before the mercy seat seven times (Leviticus 16:14: see also Hebrews 9:12). Israel took the city of Jericho after God told them to march around the city Seven times (Joshua 6:1-16). There were Seven Feast days of our Lord; Passover, Unleavened, First-fruits, Pentecost, Atonement, Trumpets, and Tabernacle (Leviticus 23:1-44).
Seven times in the Book of Revelation blessings of the Lord are promised to His people, the "Beatitudes" of Revelation (chapters 1:3; 14:13; 16:15; 19:9; 20:6; 22:7; 14). There are Seven Dispensations - Innocence, Conscience, Government, Patriarchal, Law, Grace, and Millenniah Age. The book of Revelation is filled with Seven's reference. There we read of Seven Churches, Seven seals, Seven Trumpets, Seven Personages, Seven Vails, Seven Dooms, Seven New things. Add these up and again you find there to be Seven!
There are said to be found 735 times Seven is mentioned in the Bible, Seven fold mentioned 6 times, and Seventh is found 119 times.
ELEVEN - JUDGMENT AND DISORDER:
There were Eleven judgments upon the Egyptians. They were the plague of blood (Exodus 7:19-21), frogs (Exodus 8:1-7), lice (Exodus 8:16-17), flies (Exodus 8:21-24), murrain (Exodus 9:1-7), boils (Exodus 9:8-11), hail (Exodus 9:22-25), locusts (Exodus 10:12-15), darkness (Exodus 10:21-23), first born death (Exodus 12:29-30), overthrow at the Red Sea (Exodus 14:24-28). Genesis 10:15-18, confirms that Canaan had Eleven sons, and Canaan Noah said, was Cursed! (Genesis 9:20-25). Jeremiah 52:1, confirms that Zedekiah reigned Eleven years in Jerusalem, and he was a "very wicked king."
TWELVE - PERFECTION, GOVERNMENT BY DIVINE APPOINTMENT OF GOD:
Those who follow Jesus Christ, in the regeneration, when the Son of Man shall sit in the throne of His glory, shall also sit Twelve disciples upon Twelve thrones, judging the Twelve tribes of Israel (Matthew 19:28). In Genesis 17:20, one reads that Ishmael begat Twelve princes, in Numbers 1:5-16, there are Twelve princes named over the Twelve tribes of Israel. Solomon had Twelve officers over all Israel, which provided victuals for the king and his household (1 Kings 4:7). There are Twelve months in the year, and Twelve signs in the Zodiac. Staying true to God's divine appointment in the Universe (Psalm 19:1-2; Job 38:32 - note in King James Translation, Mazzaroth means Twelve signs).
The book of Revelation confirms, a woman with a crown of Twelve stars, the New Jerusalem has Twelve gates, with Twelve angels at the gates. There will be Twelve foundations, and in them the names of the Twelve Apostles of the Lamb. There will be the Twelve manner of fruits on the trees in that great city of God. The city itself also contains the number Twelve. Measuring Twelve thousand furlongs on a side, the height of the wall being 144 cubits (12 x 12).
Synthia Esther states:
"Biblical confirmation tells us there were Twelve (the number of God's perfection) disciples until Judas, had fallen away and betrayed Jesus Christ, leaving Eleven. Peter took spiritual note of Christ's divine plan for twelve disciples, and Matthias was brought into the fold to restore God's Holy, perfect order (Acts 1).
Those who fall into the disordered temptation of seeking guidance by way of signs and wonders, 11:11 divination prompts, are taking the path of Judas, betraying Jesus Christ, who has forewarned all humanity not to do so (Deuteronomy 18).
Studies of the number Eleven in accordance with the Bible confirm it to be God's judgement number, mentioned 24 times in the Bible. If you add the number 2 + 4, as those caught away and into numerology divination and deception usually do, you will find this equals the number Six - 6, man's weakness, the manifestation of sin, and the evil's of Satan, the number 666, the beast, and Anti-Christ - (Revelation 13:8;17:4).".
