Last week, i was listening to a tape in which the speaker mentioned some things about the number 4; then i became curious and decided to do a research on the significance of some numbers and write on them, what they stand for physically and spiritually.
There are many people who think that when God put numbers in the Bible there was no spiritual significance to it, and neither should we apply any meaning to it other than the number itself. But even if we were to look at this issue superficially, we can readily see that there is some method and certain numerical symbology to the use of numbers in scripture, which forms the basis of even the use of numbers in day to day dealings. The consistency in their signification in certain situations testifies to this.
There is most certainly a great Spiritual defining in the application of many of these numbers. We are often inclined to underestimate God and what He has planted within His Holy Word. There is far more in the scriptures than can be understood in one man’s lifetime, and we can only glean the surface of this storehouse of information. For we see through a glass dimly and know only in part.
In this series, we will look at some of the numbers that carry spiritual or symbolical significance, and examine many of the passages where they are found or relate them to things we can see as the case applies. My hope is that this study might help me increase in knowledge to be able to impart into you, and that we will be able to discern some of the truths which God has ordained that these numbers should illustrate.
