108. More on the number 7

But take this into mind.
A wise man alters his ideas to fit the truth
A foolish man alters the truth to fit his ideas

In the previous article you have been able to make a beginning to connect the letters to numbers and see that the numbers do not only belong to the letters but to the structure of the star of Bethlehem too. You have seen that these 3 letters or numbers 3,6,and 9 are different to the 7 other numbers or letters, so let’s look at this number 7.

There is a special connection between these 3 and the 7(read the article about light) every phenomenon in the universe is a result of the combination of 3 forces.

You have the tendency to see towards dualities, but this threefold way of perception carries within the possibility of a new perspective, beyond force and counterforce there is and must be a third component. You can narrow down counter poles to positive and negative, and these you are able to observe at their application point, interaction or finality, are presenting a third one. The difficulty of perceiving the third force is due mainly to the categories in your general perception, similar to perceiving the fourth dimension. Let me give you an example where this third force is one of transformation; if you decide that you need to change some characteristic of your personality, then the decision is the active force,  and your habit that resists to change is the passive one, the tensioned fight between them can last forever, unless a third force appears, maybe like a new knowledge, that reinforces the need for change. Whenever the active force  is delayed or gives up, there is a third force missing, two forces are not enough to produce phenomena.

Your lack of insight of trinity is due to your subjectiveness, you do not see the world as it is. To be able to realize the presence of three forces in the phenomena of your world, inner and outer phenomena, produces the capacity of integration, produces synergy in you. The psychological importance of the law of three can be considered a truism. If you are always producing reactions, then you never learn, you never absolve, you never step out of the vicious circle of action-reaction. If you define all that is as matter and energy, then you are missing the third component. So what can be the third component? It is information. Every organized system relays on information. Information communicates in the world of matter and energy, and in some way, matter and energy are united in information. You can picture the universe as one great statement, the articulated expression of matter and energy. The importance of information,  from quantum mechanics to knowledge management, is the recognition of the law of three as vital to organized systems. But so much about the three for now, let’s first look at how the 7 are interlocked within the biblical structure.

For example: the three first chapters of Genesis where the words “garden” appears 7 times over the whole of the three chapters.

There are also a number of interlinks of structures of seven within the texts: example in Numbers 33, 34 and 35 which is at the end of the book of Numbers and one finds: 42 times the expression “they left” and 42 times “they camped” which is 6 X 7.

7 references to important exodus events
7 times the word “country”
7 times the word “Jordan”
7 times the word “heritage”
7 times the word “possess”
7 times the divine name
7 times the expression “sons of Israel”
7 times the word “sea”
7 times the word “frontiers”
7 times the word “tribes”
7 times the word “city”
7 names of Levitical cities
7 times the word “blood”
14 times the word “murderer”
7 times the expression “death to the murderer”
7 times the word “judgement” etc.…

These laws also play on the number of letters within a verse or even of a complete passage: so in Genesis chapter 1, verses 2 and 3 are comprised of 35 words (5 X 7).
The addition of words and letters  gives in general a multiple of 7 or a power of 7 or a number having a significance in the Bible.
Many other examples could be quoted but that is beyond the framework of this article. Let’s just say that there is not one single passage where these laws do not rule.
One notes then that the expression “ALL FLESH” appears 7 times and the word “ARK” 14 times (2 X 7) as soon as the latter begins to play an active role in the story (that is when the Bible declares: “then the floodgates of the heavens were opened” Genesis 7 v 11.
In addition from the verse which says: “God remembered Noah and all the animals that were with him in the ark” that is to say when the flood waters began to subside, the expression “out of the ark” appears 7 times, as well as the word “earth” which is the important word as the main theme of the passage with the appearing of the dry land.

Another example: Abraham in Israel

In Genesis chapter 12, verses 1 to 18 the important theme of the passage is “Abraham” hero of the account and the “country” towards which God is leading him. The country is mentioned seven times and Abraham 21 times (= 3 X 7).

The same thing in the story of the Abraham´s descent into Egypt. Let’s also quote two other examples easily verified even in English Bible because they are short texts: the meeting between Abraham and Abimelech in Genesis chapter 21 and verses 22 to 34: Abraham is mentioned 7 times and Abimelech 7 times.

The same for Moses and Amalek in Exodus chapter 17, verses 8 to 16, Moses appears 7 times and Amalek 7 times.

Thus it is that the divine name which has a numerical value of 26 is quoted 1780 times in the Pentateuch (Torah) or 26 times 70.

The theory of the sources of the Pentateuch, according to which it was written by four different authors in four different periods prior to being gathered together and harmonized after the exile, was correct. It would have been necessary for the different authors who lived at different times  to confer with each other over the centuries — which is simply unthinkable — and they would have been able to achieve such a work, which is shown mathematically to be impossible.

The only logical conclusion is that a supernatural mathematical intelligence “information“ providentially led the authors of the Biblical text to introduce the numerical structure as they wrote, but things do not stop there!

The law of seven rules in fact over complete sentences: for example: the book of Exodus is divided into two parts: one before the liberation from Egypt, from chapters 1 to 12 and another part after the liberation from Egypt.

The expression “the Lord spoke to Moses and said …” appears 42 times (6 X 7) in the whole of the book of Exodus, 21 times (3 X 7) in the first chapters and 21 times in the rest. Other examples of this type show the unity of the Pentateuch contrary to what the theory of sources claims.

These rules imply the exactitude right down to the form and size of letters: so that a Biblical text is declared impure if only one letter is missing or if one has been added. Rabbi Ishmael declared to a scribe: “My son, be very careful in your work, because it is a heavenly work, never omit a letter and never add a letter because they contain the whole world.” According to these very strict rules, one has been able to preserve the authentic text of the Bible from generation to generation. Certain liberal critics have doubted, but today the computer has brought us a brilliant demonstration.

So in certain sentences the same word can appear several times with different spellings and that apparently without reason. The scribes respected these strange transformations. However the computer has now discovered why these things took place. The computer can read the Bible by what is called in Hebrew “letter jumps”. Words are constructed from individual letters distant from each other and separated by a fixed number of letters according to a frequency given initially by certain criteria and called “codes”. For this reason it is necessary to ignore the spaces between the words.

In fact an ancient Jewish tradition states that Moses received the Torah from God without spaces between the letters (similar to what is done in certain ancient languages dating from the same period, for example in Egyptian hieroglyphics). So it is that there are a few different ways of reading the Torah and it is only later that God told Moses to separate the words and showed him where to insert the spaces.

Let’s look at a few examples:

In the genealogy of Adam in Genesis chapter 5, a code of 50 enables us to discover 25 times the name of Seth and a code of 26 enables us to reveal it again another 3 times. Using a code of 50 in the same passage the name of Lemech appears also 25 times. As for the name of Enoch, a code of 86 reveals it 16 times. It is the only place where a code of 86 is used: it is the numerical value of the word “Elohim” (God). We know that it is written of Enoch that “Enoch walked with God”. Still in the same text the name of Noah is revealed using a code of 26 and it appears 29 times. In Genesis chapter 7, the name of  Yaphet is revealed using a code of 26 sixteen times, whereas the name of Lot is revealed using a code of 26 in Genesis chapter 19 and in Genesis chapter 31 nine times and 25 times.

Thus in Genesis chapter 4 verses 13 to 15, the first letter of the word Cain appears in the name of Cain written in verses 13 and following.

Let us now take genesis chapter 38: the story of Judah and Tamar which deals with the question of the levirate, that is the order that we find in Deuteronomy chapter 25 verses 5 to 10 the terms of which are that the brother of a man who dies without child must marry his widow and have a son from her who will be considered as an heir of the deceased. In this text we find in a code of 50 the word “levirate”, the name “Judah” and again the word “levirate” but with a code of 248, which is the sum total of all the commandments in the Torah where God says “You shall”. But things do not stop there. In the same text, one finds the names of Boaz and Ruth, Obed and Ishai and David himself. That they are there is a very clear coded reference to the book of Ruth which tells the story of the ancestors of King David and which also deals with the question of levirate. There are here very clear references to what was still in the future for the author of the book of Genesis. Still in the same passage of Genesis chapter 38, using a code of 26 one finds the expression “Ruth Torah” and “Torah Ruth”. In fact the book of Ruth is closely linked with the Torah because it is the book that one reads on the day of Pentecost (Passover) which is the gift of the Torah.


The recurrence of the number seven-or an exact multiple of seven- is found throughout the Bible and is widely recognized. The Sabbath on the seventh day, the seven years of plenty, and the seven years of famine in Egypt, the seven priests and seven trumpets marching around Jericho and the Sabbath year of the Land are well-known examples.

Also, Solomon’s building the Temple for seven years, Naaman’s washing in the river seven times, and the seven churches, seven seals, seven trumpets, seven bowls, seven stars, and so on in the Book of Revelation, all show the consistent use of the number seven.

But it turns out to be much more below the surface. I have shown you the amazing numerical properties of the Biblical text – both the Greek of the New Testament and the Hebrew of the Old Testament. These are not only intriguing to discover, they also demonstrate an intricacy of design which clearly shows the structural design!

If we look at the first 17 verses of the New Testament (The Gospel of Matthew) which deals with a single principal subject, the genealogy of Jesus Christ, it contains 72 Greek vocabulary words in these initial 17 versus(the verse divisions are man’s allocation for convenience, added in the thirteenth-century A.D.). We find the following Heptadic (7) structure throughout these original Greek versus.
#1. The number of words which are nouns is exactly 56, or 7 x 8.
#2. The Greek word “the” occurs most frequently in the passage: exactly 56 times, or 7 x 8.
#3. Also, the number of different forms in which the article “the” occurs is exactly 7.
#4. There are two main sections in the passage: verse 1-11 and 12-17. In the first main section, the number of Greek vocabulary words used is 49, or 7 x 7.
#5. Of these 49 words, the number of those beginning with a vowel is 28, or 7 x 4.
#6. The number of words beginning with a consonant is 21, or 7 x 3.
#7. The total number of letters in these 49 words is exactly 266, or 7 x 38-exactly.
#8. The numbers of vowels among these 266 letters is 140, or 7 x 20.
#9. The number of consonants is 126, or 7 x 18-exactly.
#10. Of these 49 words, the number of words which occur more than once is 35, or 7 x 5.
#11. The number of words occurring only once is 14, or 7 x2.
#12. The number of words which occur in only one form is exactly 42, or 7 x 6.
#13. The number of words appearing in more than one form is also 7.
#14. The number of 49 Greek vocabulary words which are nouns is 42, or 7 x 6.
#15. The number of words which are not nouns is 7.
#16. Of the nouns, 35 are proper names, or 7 x 5.
#17. These 35 nouns are used 63 times, or 7 x 9.
#18. The number of male names is 28, or 7 x 4.
#19. These male names occur 56 times or 7 x 8.
#20. The number which are not male names is 7.
#21. Three women are mentioned-Tamar, Rahab, and Ruth. The number of Greek letters in these three names is 14, or 7 x 2.
#22. The number of compound nouns is 7.
#23. The number of Greek letters in these 7 nouns is 49, or 7 x 7.
#24. Only one city is named in this passage, Babylon, which in Greek contains exactly 7 letters.
And on and on it goes.

Just to understand how unique these properties are, try to design a genealogy-even from fiction- that meets the following criteria:
1) The Number of words must be divisible by 7 evenly (In each of these constraints, it is assumed that the divisions are without remainders.)
2)The number of letters must also be divisible by 7.
3)The number of vowels and the number of consonants must be divisible by 7.
4)The number of words that begin with a vowel must be divisible by 7.
5)The number of words that begin with a consonant must be divisible by 7.
6)The number of words that occur more than once must be divisible by 7.
7)The number of words that occur in more than one form must be divisible by 7.
8)The number of words that occur in only one form shall be divisible by 7.
9)The number of nouns shall be divisible by 7.
10)Only 7 words shall not be nouns.
11)The number of names in the genealogy shall be divisible by 7.
12)Only 7 other kinds of nouns are permitted.
13)The number of male names shall be divisible by 7.
14)The number of generations shall be 21, also divisible by 7.

There are even more features in the numerical structure of the words themselves. As you may know, both the Hebrew and Greek use the letters of the alphabet for numerical values. Therefore, any specific word in either Hebrew or Greek,  has a numerical value of its own by adding up the values of the letters in that particular word. The study of the numerical values of words is called gematria.

The 72 vocabulary words add up to a gematrical value of 42,364, or 7 x 6,052.
The 72 words appear in 90 forms-some appear in more than one form. The numeric value of the 90 forms is 54,075, or 7 x 7,725. Exactly.

It becomes immediately obvious that hidden below the surface are aspects of design that cannot be accidental or just coincidence as you will have noticed from the previous articles on Truth & Revelations.

Even if Matthew contrived this characteristic into his Gospel, how could he have known that these specific words-whose sole characteristic is that they are found nowhere else in the New Testament-were not going to be used by the other writers? Unless we assume the absurd hypothesis that he had an agreement with them, he must have had the rest of the New Testament before him when he wrote his book. The Gospel of Matthew then, must have been written last.

It so happens the Gospel of Mark exhibits the same phenomenon. It can be demonstrated that it would have had to be written “last”.  The same phenomenon is found in Luke, John, Peter, Jude and Paul. Each would have had to write after the other in order to contrive the vocabulary frequencies! You can demonstrate that each of the New Testament books had to have been “written last”.

There is no human explanation for this incredible and precise structure. It has all been supernaturally designed. We simply gasp, sit back, and behold the skilful handiwork of the God who keeps his promises.

By the way, the crucifixion of Jesus took place at Golgotha, elevation = 777 meters above sea level. What a ‘coincidence’.

The list is too long to mention them all, in fact throughout the whole bible, this 7 has its part.

Let’s look at the Thora, there are 5 books Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. If you remember 7 x 7 is 49 the highest you can get, then there is the 50, skip 49 letters and again etc., both in Genesis and Exodus these skips will spell out Torah. The same happens with Numbers and Deuteronomy,  but a mirror image haroT and the middle one Leviticus spells out YHWH with a skip of 7.

Remember three divided by seven? 0,428571 and this continues 0,428571428571……..

But enough about the seven for now.

Just a point we did not talk about but used the “triangulation “, in the previous article I used it in relation with the number 153 it is the adding up of 1+2+3+4+5 until 17=153

How much this is related to the structure too? Count from 1+2+3 etc. until 192, a number mentioned as being on the location of the 4 and 5 where I said the 5 and 6 come together (meaning the angle of 60 degrees and 36 degrees), where I also explained the 40 or 400 is a global count and under is 19,2 twice being 384, count 1+2+3 until this 192 and you will get 69(000) the mirror of 96. And if you count up to 207 you will get 72(000).


Of the 22 Hebrew letters we dealt with the 3 and the 7 to some extent, which leaves another 12, these 12 are related to the 12 zodiacal signs, the 12 disciples.

Now that you have been given the letter divisions please actively look up the related names, numbers etc. so the numbers and letters become more meaningful, just like the zodiacal signs and characters in the Bible represent principles.
