The Prophetic Significance Of Biblical Numbers
by Pastor/Evangelist Len Hutsell
This article has been viewed 1120 times.

Psalm 90:12 — "So teach us to NUMBER OUR DAYS that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom."

In this month's End-Times Trumpet I want to write to you about the significance of "Numbers" in the Bible and the prophetic influence that they exert upon events of certain years.

Have you wondered about why there has been REBELLION in this year of 2013 in the nation of Egypt against what was the properly elected government, which has resulted in the overthrow of the properly elected government of President Morsi (as is documented by this article (see Fig. 1) from the Corpus Christi Caller Times)?

We note that not only has there been REBELLION against the properly elected government of President Morsi in Egypt, but there is also a rebellion going on in the nation of Syria against the government of Bashar Assad, which caused Assad to respond against the rebellion with chemical weapons, which is prompting President Obama to contemplate leading a coalition attack upon the nation of Syria and the government of Bashar Assad, as is documented by this Associated Press news article from the Corpus Christi Caller Times on the date of Aug. 27, 2013 (see Fig. 2).

I believe that the reason why these events are occurring in the Middle East is because of the influence of the number 13 (of this present year of 2013 upon the events of the World stage. I say that because I believe that there is a prophetic significance to numbers in the Bible and because of the fact that I have observed that the "number of the year" does have influence upon the world events that occur during that year. The number "13" (as in "2013") — in the Bible — is the number of REBELLION. We note this in Gen. 14:4 — "Twelve years they served Chedorlaomer, and in the thirteenth" ("13th") "year THEY REBELLED."

The number "13" being the Biblical "number of REBELLION" is also seen in the fact that when America REBELLED against Great Britain to establish our own nation of the United States Of America we had 13 colonies. It is also to be noted that the person and kingdom of the Antichrist (who will be the greatest early REBEL against God and Christ that will have ever lived) is described in the 13th chapter of the Book of Revelation.

The prophetic significance of some other Biblical numbers are:

The Number 1 — denotes UNITY, as is seen by the fact that even though God is a "Triune Being" (Father, Son, Holy Spirit) yet as "God" He is also ONE (1). This is seen in Deut. 6:4 — "Hear, O Israel,: the Lord our God in ONE Lord."

Syria Unrest

The Number 2 — denotes the SUPPORTING LIGHT OF WITNESS. This is seen by the facts that:

1) In the account of the Creation, God created TWO "Great Lights" — the Sun and the Moon — to give LIGHT upon the Earth (Gen. 1:16).
2) TWO molded Cherubim (modeled after the "Cherubims" — since it reads "Cherubims" there were probably TWO — with a FLAMING SWORD — which "flame" gave LIGHT — who guarded the entrance back into the Garden of Eden after the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden — Gen. 3:24) were mounted upon the lid of the Ark Of The Covenant ("The Mercy Seat" where the "Shekinah Glory LIGHT of God" dwelt) as Guardians of the Ark Of The Covenant (Ex. 25:18-22).
3) Jesus sent His Disciples out TWO by TWO to bear witness to the "LIGHT of Christ" in Luke 10:1
4) TWO Witnesses will appear and walk the streets of Jerusalem during the Tribulation of the "last days" to establish the "Light of Truth" in exposing the lies and deceit of the Antichrist and to bear witness to the "Truth and LIGHT of Christ" — Rev. 11.

The Number 3 — is the "Number of the Trinity" (in that God is a "Triune Being" — "Father, Son, and Holy Spirit" — 1 John 5:7 — "For there are THREE that bear record in Heaven: the Father, the Word" (Jesus Christ — the Son of God — John 1:1,14) "and the Holy Spirit and these THREE are ONE" ("No. 1" being the "number of Unity'".) "God", being a "Triune Being" of "THREE PERSONS" is also seen in that Jesus gave the command that we are to baptize converts "in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit" in Matt. 28:19.

"God", being a "Triune Being" of "THREE PERSONS" is also seen in the fact that when God appeared to Abraham to warn him of the imminent destruction of the twin cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, Gen. 18:1-3 reads: "And the LORD appeared unto him" (Abraham) "in the plains of Mamre and he" (Abraham) "sat in the tent door in the heat of the day.
"And he"
(Abraham) "lifted up his eyes and looked, and lo, THREE MEN stood by him and when he saw THEM he ran to meet THEM from the tent door, and bowed himself toward the ground.
"And said: 'My LORD'..."
("Yahwe")

We also note that the TRIUNE GOD, in His dealings with men, often deals in units of "3". This is seen in that:

1) The Prophet Jonah — for rebelling against God — spent 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of a "great fish" — Matt. 12:40.
2) Jesus Christ's earthly ministry lasted 3 years — Luke 13:7.
3) Jesus rose from the dead on the 3rd day after His crucifixion — Matt. 27:63
4) After being "dead" as a nation for nearly 2000 years the Nation of Israel was "resurrected from the dead" (fulfilling the "bone yard prophecy" of Ezek. 37) in 1948 and will "live spiritually in the sight of the Lord" during the future 1000 years of Christ's millennial Reign, which will be the 3rd thousand years after the destruction of ancient Israel, which will fulfill the prophecy of Hos. 6:2 — "After two days" (nearly 2000 years) "He will revive us" (which was fulfilled in 1948) "and in the 3rd day" (1000 year Millennial Reign of Christ) "we will live in His sight."

The Number 4 — is the "number of the Earth" in that:

1) There are 4 directions upon the Earth — North, South, East, and West
2) Earth has 4 Seasons — Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter
3) Jesus spoke of 4 types of "soil" in the hearts and lives of men upon the Earth in Matt. 13.

The Number 5 — is the "number of Grace" in that:

1) There are 5 books of the Pentateuch (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy) in the Old Testament that relate to the "Grace of God" for the Old Testament Nation of Israel.
2) There were 5 Levitical Offerings to obtain the Old Testament "Grace of God" in Lev. 1-5.
3) When Jesus died on the Cross — to provide the "Grace of God" for the Salvation of mankind — He had 5 piercing wounds on His body: 2 wounds in his feet, 2 wounds in His hands, and 1 wound in His side.

The Number 6 — is the "number of man" in that man was created on the 6th day of Creation. It is also to be noted that when the Antichrist comes he will have an identifying number which — according to Rev. 13:18 — "is the number of a man" only the identifying "number of the Antichrist" will be a trio of "6's" — "666" — Rev. 13:18 —"and his number is six hundred, threescore" (60) "and six" to stand for the "Satanic Trinity" — Satan, Antichrist, and The False Prophet. I will explain more about this number "666" in a future edition of End-Times Trumpet.

The Number 7 — is the "number of completeness of a unit":

1) When God performed the Creation in the Book of Genesis, He did it in 6 days and then rested on the 7th day (Gen. 2:2) to complete the "Creation Week".
2) In Psalm 12:6 we are told that God's Word is like Silver purified 7 times in a fire.
3) Mary Magdalene was cleansed of the "completeness of a unit" of demon possession in Luke 8:2 in that 7 demons were cast out of her.
4) In the Book Of Revelation the "completeness of unit of the 'Church Age'" is described prophetically in 7 Letters to 7 Churches.
5) In the Book Of Revelation, the judgments of God upon the World take place in the form of:

     (1) 7 Seals
     (2) 7 Trumpets
     (3) 7 Vial/Bowl Judgments and there are also 7 Thunders.

The Number 8 — is the "number of new beginnings":

1) When the "Great Flood" of "the days of Noah" was over there were 8 persons left alive to begin the repopulating of the Earth (which was a "new beginning" for the Earth), who were Noah, Noah's wife, Noah's 3 sons, and the 3 wives of Noah's 3 sons.

The Number 9 — is the "number of fullness of blessing" in that:

1) There are 9 Fruits of the SpiritGal. 5:22-23 — "But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering" (patience) "gentleness, goodness, faith" (faithfulness), "Meekness, temperance" (self-control) "against such there is no law."
2) There are 9 Gifts of the SpiritI Cor. 12:8-10 — "For to one is given, by the Spirit, the Word of Wisdom; to another the Word of Knowledge by the same Spirit.
"To another Faith by the same Spirit; to another the Gifts of Healings by the same Spirit.
"To another the Working of Miracles, to another Prophecy, to another Discerning of Spirits, to another Divers Kinds of Tongues, to another the Interpretation of Tongues."


The Number 10 — is the "number of Law" in that when God gave man the "Law" He gave it to mankind in the form of "10 Commandments" (Ex. 20:1-17; Deut. 5:6-21).

The Number 11 — is "the number of disorder":

1) This is seen that after Judas betrayed Jesus he then went out and hung himself which brought "disorder" to the "number of the Disciples/Apostles" (which was originally 12) so that there were only, at that time, 11 Apostles left.

The Number 12 — is the "number of government". This is seen in that:

1) There are 12 Months in the year;
2) There were 12 Patriarchs (the 12 sons of Jacob/Israel) in the Old Testament whose descendents became the 12 Tribes of Israel.
3) There were 12 Apostles in the New Testament
4) In the Heavenly Holy City — New Jerusalem — there are 12 Foundations (Rev. 21:14,19-20), there are 12 Gates each made of 1 Pearl, and there are 12 Angels guarding the entrance into the 12 Gates (Rev. 21:12).

This, then, brings us to the number "13" (which is the number of our present year — "2013") which, as I have previously shown is "the number of rebellion". We might also note that the "number 13" is also associated with Satan and "black magic" and is considered by many to be an "unlucky number". The reason why the "number 13" is associated with Satan is because Satan was once himself one of God's highest chosen Angels in Heaven but led a rebellion against God in Heaven:

Isa. 14:12-15 — "How art thou fallen from Heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground who did weaken the nations!
"For you have said in your heart: 'I will ascend into Heaven, I will exalt my throne above the Stars of God; I will set, also, upon the Mount of the Congregation in the sides of the North.
" 'I will ascend above the heights of the clouds, I will be like the Most High.'
"Yet you will be brought down to Hell to the sides of the Pit!"


There are other Biblical numbers on beyond the "number 13" which also has prophetical significance, but having now reached the "number 13" — the number of the present year of "2013" — I am going to cease in my explanation of the prophetic significance of Biblical numbers. I, however, have given this explanation to explain why I believe it is that "rebellion" is occurring in the nations of Syria and Egypt: it is because we are now living in "the year of rebellion" — the year "13", as in "2013".

Perhaps, if "Time" continues on past 2013 to the year 2014 that may be the year that Jesus will come again in the event of the "Rapture" (1 Thess. 4:13-17) because "2014" will be a "double" of the number "7" (which is the Biblical number of "completeness of a unit") and by "2014" the "two units" of the "Old Testament" and "New Testament" may be considered as "completed" (as we are now living in the "New Testament Age Of The Church", described prophetically in the "Seven Letters To The Seven Churches" in Rev. 2-3), and thus to fully "complete" the "New Testament Age Of The Church" Jesus may come and "catch away" His believers — his "Church" into Heaven in the event of the Rapture. So I, like John the Revelator, say: "Even so, come Lord Jesus!" (Rev. 22:20).
