For those in the West who question numerology and its veracity, particularly those within the realm of Christianity, one simply has to look to the Bible for corroborating support. The Bible is a living testimony to the ancient science of numerology, a science that actually predates Christianity. The Bible is possibly the richest study that exists on the use of numbers and numerology. Just as Christ spoke in parables, the Bible is itself a numerological parable. Furthermore, it must be remembered that the teachings of the Bible originated in the East and that Christ himself was an Eastern, not a Western, mystic.
From the first page of the first chapter of Genesis, the Bible states that on the first day God created the universe (Genesis 1:5), then added the sun, moon, stars, earth, creatures, and man into the universe. following days and rested on the seventh day (Genesis 2:2). It is no coincidence that the number ‘1’ represents the vibration of new creation and genesis, while the number ‘7’ represents rest and stillness.
The number Three (3) is extremely frequent in the Bible. Below are some examples that illustrate this point.
1. There were twelve tribes of Israel. Twelve reduces to the number 3: 12 > 1 + 2 = 3
2. Christ had twelve disciples. Again, a ‘3’ for reduction.
3. Christ was denied three times by Peter, betrayed by Judas for 30 pieces of silver, was crucified on the cross with
two others (a total of three) and rose again on the third day.
4. In Genesis it is said that the years of man will be one hundred and twenty (Genesis 6:3). Again, 120 reduces to a
integer 3: 120 > 1 + 2 + 0 = 3.
5. Noah had three sons (Genesis 6:10)
6. The length of Noah’s Ark was three hundred cubits; its height, 30 cubits, and had three stories (Genesis
7. Adam lived 930 years (Genesis 5:5); again a reduced three: 930 > 9 + 3 + 0 = 12 > 1 + 2 = 3.
8. Jonah was in the whale’s belly three days and three nights (Jonah 1:17)
9. The word, “Bible”, is a vibration of Three in reduction.
B(2) + I(9) + B(2) + L(3) + E(5) = 21 > 2 + 1 = 3!
What does this all mean? Why the number Three? Three is the code of perfection. Representing the Trinity, it is the integration of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Basically, the Bible is a work that represents the Perfection of the Trinity as well as the perfection and integration of our own body, mind and spirit.
the number 40
Another interesting number that appears constantly in the Bible is the number forty (40). After Noah built the Ark, God made it rain for forty days and forty nights (Genesis 7:4), the flood was on the earth for forty days and forty nights, and when the flood waters finally abated, Noah opened the windows of the Ark on the fortieth day (Genesis 8:6). Moses, of course, led the children of Israel out of slavery as they wandered in the desert for forty years and received the ten commandments from the Lord after fasting on Mount Sinai for forty days and forty nights (Exodus 34:28). Jesus the Christ fasted forty days and forty nights in the desert (Matthew 4:2) and visited his apostles for forty days after his ascension (Acts 1, 1:3).
All of these references, of course, give rise to the spiritual significance of the number forty, as well as establishing the Bible as a clear and profound historical and numerological work. It is clear from these examples that ‘Forty’ is the number of spiritual cleansing, testing and purification established in a structure of separation, privation, devotion, determination, discipline, denial, self-denial, self-sacrifice, self-control, work and effort. In other words, there is a defined framework for spirituality.
the number 7
And then there is the number Seven (7), mentioned in the Bible no less than 668 times in 562 verses (bibleontheweb.com). God rested on the 7th and blessed him (Genesis 2:2-3); Cainan lived seventy years (Genesis 5:12); Lamech’s days were 777 (Genesis 5:31); Christ and the seven loaves (Matthew 15,36) and the seven baskets (Matthew 15,37); the seven brothers (Matthew 22:25). The Book of Revelation is a cornucopia of the number Seven: the seven heads, the seven crowns, the seven kings, the seven golden bowls, the seven angles, the seven last plagues, the seven seals, the seven spirits, the seven stars, the seven horns, the seven eyes, the seven trumpets. , seven thunders, seven churches, seven golden chandeliers, – almost never ends. Why? Why the number Seven? As Pythagoras said, Seven is the most spiritual of all numbers because it is a synthesis of Four (the square of matter) and Three (the trine of spirit). Seven represents the energy that tests us and takes us deep into the hidden realms of Spirit and the Inner Realms. Seven is the most exalted of all nine basic numbers, which is why it is given the highest placement on the cover of The King’s Book of Numerology, Volume 1: Basics and Fundamentals.
And so on, balloon after balloon. Truly, the Bible is a veritable treasure trove of secret, spiritual, mystical, and numerical codes. The ancients knew the secrets of numbers, and it can be beneficial for us to understand them too. Just because we are somewhat technologically advanced does not mean that we are humanistically, spiritually, or metaphysically advanced. To think that, as a race of human beings, we are superior to other races in other times, let alone those races on other planets in other solar systems and galaxies, borders on ignorance and arrogance. Those people who lived in the Biblical era and who wrote the Bible obviously knew something that we don’t, and they left us a work that is conclusively and irrefutably… numerological.
