A little Apologetics and numerology….

15 March, 2010

Hey I like busy 🙂

on a side note if you have 5 min- sorta’ pertains –  little personal bible study of ours in progress:

Matt24:
42 – Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?
46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing….

Yeah I like busy!

To OUR personal studies, this kinda points the finger to possibly knowing what period of time it WOULD be.

Hmmm, this year we think:)
even Rosh Hashanna – Feast of Trumpets
(See studies on God’s Feasts for Isreal…)

This hasn’t been fulfilled prophetically yet, the very next one to be fulfilled in some future date (last one fulfilled at Pentecost – in Acts)…and thats coming up quick here in Sept… We’ll see…

Another example-

2012 and 2010 –
Here are some common numbers found in the Bible and what these numbers usually mean. Some portions of this list are adapted from Number in Scripture: Its Supernatural Design and Spiritual Significance by E.W. Bullinger and Interpreting the Symbols and Types by Kevin Connor.

(see 9, 10, and 12 specifically – (as in 20 09, 20 10, etc)…we see these especially significant in these days):

One – Unity, commencement, sovereignty. (Connor) God’s sovereignty. (Bullinger) The Bible often says “The Lord God is One”, so I’ve always seen the number one as representing the Divine, in addition to wholeness and unity.

Two – Differences, distinctness, a witness. Also, opposition, enmity and division. (Bullinger) I’m reminded of the scripture that says “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways” and the concept of being “double-tongued.”

Three – That which is solid, real, substantial, complete, entire. Divine perfection. Symbolizes fullness of testimony or manifestation. (Bullinger) I’m reminded of the N.T. account of Jesus’ resurrection on the 3rd day. There seems to be connections to resurrection themes with the number three.

Four – Four is the number of things that have a beginning, of things that are made, material things, and matter itself. Four is the number of material completeness. It is a world number and especially the “city” number. Creative works and tangible manifestations. 4 is also the number of man in his relation to the world created. (Bullinger) I’m reminded of “the four corners of the Earth”, which indicates all things terrestrial and “under the Sun”.

Five – Divine grace. God adding gifts and blessings to the works of creation. God-enabling. Five is also a leading factor in tabernacle measurement. (Bullinger)

Six – Six is the number of man in opposition to God. It is a human number. According to the creation story, man was created on the 6th day and this first occurrence of the number 6, and all of its multiples, is a hallmark of all that is connected to mankind. Men who have stood in defiance of God (Goliath, Nebuchadnezzar, and the Antichrist) are emphatically “marked” with this number. (Bullinger) When I think of the “number of the beast” (666) I can’t help but think that the true “beast” is really the ego/flesh–man’s nature apart from the Divine.

Seven – Spiritual perfection. Seven is the number which regulates every period of incubation and gestation. To swear an oath of completion. (Bullinger) I tend to see 7 (spiritual perfection) as a melding of God (1) with man (6).

Eight – Re-generation; a new beginning or commencement. The 8th is a new “first”, e.g. octave in music, days of the week, etc. Eight and its multiples are associated with all that has to do with the names of God. By Gematria JESUS makes 888.

Nine – The conclusion of a matter, last of the digits, summation of all man’s works. Finality of divine things. It is 3×3, the product of Divine completeness. (Bullinger) Finality of judgment. The number nine, or its factors or multiples, is seen in all cases when judgment is the subject. (Connor) Nine is also the number of the Fruit of the Spirit, as well as the Types of the Enneagram.

Ten – Ordinal perfection. Perfection of order or rank. Another new first after the 9th digit (Bullinger) Symbol of law, order, testing, and trial. (Connor)

Twelve – Governmental perfection. It is the number or factor of all numbers connected with government–whether by tribes or apostles, or in measurement of time, or in things which have to do with government in the heavens and Earth. (Bullinger) Divine and apostolic government. (Connor)

Twenty-Four – Symbol of priesthood and order. (Connor) Heavenly government and worship. (Bullinger)

Forty – Symbol of testing, trial, closing in victory or defeat. (Connor) 5×8=product of grace extending to renewal. Period of testing, probation, and chastisement (not punishment but molding through discipline). (Bullinger)

Seventy – The product of 7×10 exhibits the significance of each in its intensified form–perfect spirit and order. Also, perfect spiritual order carried out in all spiritual power and significance. (Bullinger) Symbol of number prior to increase. (Connor)…

heh, there’s more of this if your interest is perked – does anyone else see the significance other than us?  It’s possible we could be mildly crazy…:)
