As the whole world knows, today is the rare date of 7/7/7–July 7, 2007–well, I suppose any date is rare, since there will never be another such one. The lineup of the 7s is the exceptional mark of this Saturday, however.
For as long as I can recall, I have been told that the number 7 is the number of perfection. Since early this morning, I have been wondering about that. How do we know that to be so? Does the Bible tell us that?
I know that:
God rested on the 7th day.
A Jubilee year was 7 times 7
The Bible lists 7 churches of Asia.
Jesus’ geneology lists Him 77th in a direct line. (I read that somewhere and don’t know if it is true or not.)
Israel circled Jericho for 7 days.
The world has 7 continents.
There are 7 days in a week.
But does any of that prove that the number 7 is that of perfection? I want to hear from you Bible scholars out there. Help me.
