The Power of Numbers
return to letter

When you start talking about the power of numbers, you are talking about the occult and pagan religions. Christianity never has made any claims that there is power in certain numbers. Numbers have no power, they are just numbers.

There are no special numbers in Christianity, although there are many important numbers. Here are just a few:

1. There is ONE God.

2. The TWO greatest commandments - love God and love your neighbor.

3. The THREE persons of the Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.

4. The FOUR Gospels - Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

5. The FIVE books of Moses (the Pentatude).

6. God created everything in SIX days.

7. On the SEVENTH day He rested.

8. There are EIGHT men whom God inspired to write the New Testament.

9. Jesus healed ten lepers, but NINE did not thank him.

10. The TEN Commandments

We can keep going up into bigger numbers:

30 pieces of silver were paid to Judas.

Jesus was in the wilderness for 40 days.

Israel was in captivity in Babylon for 70 years.

Gideon started with an army of 32,000 men, which God reduced to 300. Following God's plan, those THREE HUNDRED defeated a large Midianite army.

The Millenial Kingdom will last 1000 years.

Jesus fed 5000, then he fed a different group of 4000.

There are no special numbers in Christianity.
