A key to understanding the design of God’s word is through the meaning of biblical numbers. You will begin to understand the patterns that reveal the handiwork of God that do not exist by random chance but by design.
God designed and created the universe based on mathematical laws and numbers, which still governs creation today, just as God also used numerals in the design of His word.
“‘To whom then will you compare Me, or who is My equal?’ says the Holy One. Lift up your eyes on high, and behold, who has created these things, who brings out their host by number.” (Isaiah 40:25, HBFV)
This series on biblical numbers will begin with the number 1. Each number will be defined and the significance of the number explained. We will then illustrate its meaning as applied to its use.
Biblical Number 1
The number 1 represents unity and a new beginning. One is only divisible by itself yet composes all the numerals. One symbolizes the unity between God and His Son Jesus (John 10:30). Jesus by His singular sacrifice, made all forgiveness of all sins possible.
“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” (Colossians 1:15)
Biblical number 1 also represents new beginnings and deals with strong will, positivity and pure energy. The number 1 symbolizes both kinds of action: mental and physical. This combined with urgency for a new beginning; we see a recurring pattern in our lives to take our inspired thought, take action and start a new venture.
This is but a glimpse into the spiritual potential of biblical number 1. Stay tuned for more insight into biblical numbers @ askdrcris.com.
