NUMBER 7 Most important number in Bible

7

The following is from here

SEVEN:   Spiritual perfection and fullness or completion.  It is the number of Covenant and of the Holy Spirit.

  • Seven is the second perfect number.

  • In Hebrew seven is shevah (shebah) from the root shava (shaba or sheba), meaning “to be full.”

  • God rested on the seventh day (Saturday) after Creation [Genesis 2:2]

  • To swear an oath in Hebrew is “to seven oneself.”

  • There are seven gifts of the Holy Spirit (CCC#1831; Isaiah 11:1)

  • The sacred Menorah has seven branches (six on each side of a central shaft) and seven cup shaped lamps for the olive oil

  • There were seven classes of furniture in the Tabernacle: Bronze sacrificial Altar, Bronze Laver, Golden Menorah, Golden Table of the Bread of the Presence, Golden Altar of Incense, Ark of the Covenant and the Mercy-seat/Seat of Atonement.

  • The Tabernacle was built in six days and dedicated on the seventh [Exodus 40:17]

  • It took Solomon seven years to build the Temple in Jerusalem. [1 Kings 6:37-38]

  • There are seven annual holy feast days observed under the Law of the Sinai Covenant [Leviticus 23:1-44]

  • The Feast of Passover is the 1st month of the liturgical year but the seventh month of the civil year. [Exodus 12:1-2]

  • The Feast of Tabernacles completes the cycle of Holy Days in the seventh month of the liturgical year.[Leviticus 23:33-43]

  • There are multiple sevens in the Book of Revelation: There are 55 sevens and 5 sevenths, 5×7 (35) phrases of sevens in the Book of Revelation.  List of “sevens” in the Book of Revelation:

Seven is a significant number in the natural world:

  • mammals and birds have a gestation of multiples of 7:

mouse: 21 days (3 x 7)

cat 56 (8 x 7)

Sheep 147 (21 x 7)

hare & rat, 28 ( 4×7)

dog 63 (9 x 7)

hen 21 (3 x 7)

humans 280 days ( 40 x 7)

lion 98 (14 x 7)

duck 42 (6 x 7)

  • With insects the ova are hatched in seven half-days (the wasp, bee, etc).  But with other insects it is seven whole days.  The majority of insects require from 14 (2×7) to 42 (6×7) days and the same applies to the larva state.

  • Man’s pulse beats on the seven-day principle.  For six days out of seven it beats faster in the morning than in the evening while on the seventh day it beats slower.  The seventh day is the day of rest!

  • 7 days in a week

  • 7 colors in the spectrum – the seven colored rainbow was the sign of the covenant with Noah

  • There are 168 hours in a week = 7 x 24

The following is from here

The Bible contains visible “sevens” as follows:

++ The word “seven” 463 occurrences in 391 verses
++ The word “sevenfold” 6 occurrences in 5 verses
++ The word “sevens” 2 occurrences in 2 verses
++ The word “seventeen” 10 occurrences in 10 verses
++ The word “seventeenth” 6 occurrences in 6 verses
++ The word “seventh” 120 occurrences in 115 verses
++ The word “seventy” 61 occurrences in 60 verses
A total of 668 times

There are 200+ of the invisible “sevens” such as the “seven” miracles recorded in the Gospel of John. John only identifies “seven” miracles performed by Jesus Christ, while the other Gospel writers record many more, with Matthew recording the most. There is a reason why John only records “seven” such miracles. I’ll discuss it more later on the incredible authentication signature of the Creator.

Just the number of 7 in the bible should be enough to convert all to being anointed in Christ, but such is the hardness of hearts.
