The Number 777
The number seven has deep spiritual significance. It has been held sacred by
the Hebrews and other Semite peoples since the dawn of time. It represents
perfection and holiness. It is used throughout the Scriptures and in this
sense is the Almighty's Number. We read of:
In addition to these examples, and there are many more, the Almighty has
blessed each seventh portion of time in
The Sacred Calendar:
the The Seventh Day of the Week, the seventh year and also the seventh thousanth year period referred to by Bible students as the Millennium. Together with the
Festivals of the God of Israel these all express the concept of totality, maturity, holiness and absolute perfection.
- Samson's seven locks of consecration. (Judges 16:13-19)
- The seven pillars of wisdom's house. (Proverbs 9:1)
- The sevenfold sign of total commitment and dependence (2 Chron. 29: 20-21)
- The seven lambs to attest the conclusion of a peace treaty.
- The seven fold sprinkling of blood before cleansing was complete.
- The seven week count to Pentecost, the seven year count to the sabbatical year and the seven times seven year count to the Jubilee year.
(Lev. 23:15, Lev.25:1-9)
- The seven candlesticks, seven churches, seven stars, seven seals,
seven trumpets, seven thunders, and seven plagues mentioned in the book of
To us in Stewarton Bible School the triple sevens (777)
numerically symbolise Yahweh, the Father of Yeshua the Messiah. He is the pinnacle of perfection, power and purity. The number
777 may also be the numeric value of some word or group of words: we
do not know. Satan has hijacked this number and uses it in all kinds of bizarre ways; but as far as Scripture is concerned, seven is the number of perfection and holiness. To us in SBS the number 777 numerically
expresses the Almighty's Truth as regards His 7th day Sabbath, His 7
annual Sabbaths, His 7th year Sabbath and His 7th thousand year Sabbath - the millennium. We could go further and write 7777777 - ad infinitum, or 70
times 7, with each additional seven representing another perfect revelation
of His character: but 777 will do for the time being.
By contrast the treble sixes - 666 - represent Satan the perfection of imperfection: the unholy and immature one: the one who will always fall short of Yahweh's moral stature just as the number 6 will always fall short of the number 7. Perhaps that is why Satan seeks to abolish every sacred
seventh portion of time in the calendar of the Almighty: because his evil mind is totally incapable of ever matching the majesty, might and maturity of Yahweh the Holy One of Israel.
