PREFACE

Dear Reader,

We live in a world where it's been nearly two thousand


years of death and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ. The Holy
Bible has traveled virtually all four corners of the earth, across east
and west already know the name of Him who came into the world to
bring eternal life to those who believe in Him.
Christian churches are scattered everywhere, and after these two
thousand years what we see is the enormous diversity of classifications
in their denominations in order successive divisions occurring in the
Christian with the passing of these two thousand years.
Despite this diversity, a certainty prevails in most of the Christian
religion: the return of our Lord Jesus Christ is very close, because
almost all the signs foretold by our Lord Jesus - in particular, by
reading the book of Revelation - there remains doubt on this point.

But we put the question is: Are the Christian churches preaching the
gospel in an intense way of the Kingdom of God ordained by our Lord
Jesus and as a consequence, preparing the bride for the marriage of
the lamb?

It seems we are experiencing a period of contradictions, blind alleys,


precisely because the strategy itself created by Satan, for this end time.
On the one hand, that churches take Jesus is at the door, on the
other, however, practice preaching massive healing and prosperity.
What is happening then?

The day and hour when Jesus will come back nobody knows, but the
Father But through this work, we intend to show there in the Good
Book, abundant reference as to when this would occur through the
mysteries related to the numbers cited in the Holy Book.

After reading the Holy Bible, something caught my attention. The


6
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

number of references that have identical numbers throughout the Holy


Book from Genesis to Revelation is something amazing and wonderful
as the revelation of a mystery after the drafting of the last book
(Revelation), all pieces fit perfectly and smoothly , as can be, by reason
of perfection that is our God.
In fact, many numbers in the Bible are cited repeatedly, each
possessing a significance with regard to God's plan. However, three of
these numbers will be addressed in this work, since together reveal the
mystery of God from creation to the end of time, with the return of our
Lord Jesus Christ, namely the four, three and finally the seven.'''

Initially, we will show the number four and its derivatives (the fourth,
forty, four hundred). You are so intense he present in the Old
Testament, and reading the verses in which he appears, translates into
something like "hope," "Patience", "preparation period".

Subsequently, we also note that the number that appears in the Holy
Bible on numerous occasions, and now much more frequent in the
New Testament, is the three and their derivatives (thirty, three
hundred, the third). We also note that this number has close
relationship with the life of our Lord Jesus Christ, whose completion of
their meaning by reading the Bible passages was "running",
"realization," consummation. "

Finally, the last number or perhaps the "first", we know - our God
knows - it's seven, which appears several times in both the Old and
New Testaments, especially in the first (Genesis) and last book
(Revelation) representing the number of perfection, the day God rested
from all his work he had done.

We explained further that were brought to this work, some passages


revealed by God to this author when preparing this study, which is
why when reading this book the reader may refer to other passages of
the Holy Book were not here presented.

We hope that reading this book, somehow, not only serve as a tool for
reflection on the current state of our relationship with the Church of
Christ, but also awakens a sense of confirmation that the return of our
Lord Jesus Christ really is very come and that the fruits of these
feelings result in effective participation in the work of our Lord Jesus,
to take all the preaching of the gospel of the kingdom of God.
Maranatha! Jesus comes!

Chapter 1

THE NUMBER FOUR

WAITING ON THE LORD

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

CREATION
Initially, we note in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis, an
important presence of this number as a divisive factor among the
things that our God created both before and after the fourth day.

By the fourth day, we see that God created the light (day), has
separated between water and water (second day), split between land
and seas, production of green grass, seed, fruit tree (third day), and
created the sun, moon and stars (fourth day).

By the fifth day God created the seas then reptiles, birds and whales,
and the sixth day God made the beasts of the earth, cattle, and every
creeping thing of the earth, and finally created man and woman.

On the seventh day God rested from all his work he had done.

8
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Note that by the fourth day, there was still life on earth, for only the
fifth and sixth day God set aside to create life as described above.
Soon, the "four" is presented here as a preparation for life to come to
earth.

DO RIO NO JARDIM DO ÉDEN

(Gênesis 2:10) - And a river went out of Eden to


water the garden; and from thence it was parted, and
became into four heads.

THE FLOOD

When God decided to put an end to all that


was done, Noah and his family had to "wait" for forty days and forty
nights he had to order all the rain that God has laid on the ground.

GEN 7:4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to


rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and
every living substance that I have made will I destroy
from off the face of the earth.
GEN 7:12 And the rain was upon the earth forty days
and forty nights.
GEN 7:17 And the flood was forty days upon the
earth; and the waters increased, and bare up the ark,
and it was lift up above the earth.
GEN 8:6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days,
that Noah opened the window of the ark which he had
made:

Isaac and Rebecca


GEN 25:20 And Isaac was forty years old when he
took Rebekah to wife, the daughter of Bethuel the
Syrian of Padanaram, the sister to Laban the Syrian.
GEN 25:21 And Isaac entreated the LORD for his
wife, because she was barren: and the LORD was
entreated of him, and Rebekah his wife conceived.
GEN 25:26 And after that came his brother out, and
his hand took hold on Esau's heel; and his name was
9
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

called Jacob: and Isaac was threescore years old


when she bare them.

Isaac waited for forty years, that God would prepare a wife. As the
LORD had respect for Isaac, send him a wife named Rebekah. This, in
turn, was barren, leading Isaac to pray to the Lord for his wife to give
her children. The word tells us that Isaac prayed for twenty years to
conceive, Rebekah Esau and Jacob.

ESAU AND THEIR WIVES


GEN 26:34 And Esau was forty years old when he
took to wife Judith the daughter of Beeri the Hittite,
and Bashemath the daughter of Elon the Hittite:
GEN 26:35 Which were a grief of mind unto Isaac and
to Rebekah.

Unlike what happened with Jacob, Esau having the age of forty, took to
himself two wives, and the above verse shows that these wives were for
parents of Esau, a spirit of bitterness, or sadness and grief caused
Isaac and Rebekah.

THE TIME OF SLAVERY

Having become slaves in Egypt, the people of


Israel had to "wait " for four hundred and thirty years to be released.

GEN 15:13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety


that thy seed shall be a stranger in a land that is not
theirs, and shall serve them; and they shall afflict
them four hundred years;
EX 12:40 Now the sojourning of the children of Israel,
who dwelt in Egypt, was four hundred and thirty
years.

God tells us there is a strict relationship in the following points: the life
of Moses and Jesus Christ, the waiting time, and ultimately, slavery.
Consider:
The Jewish people remained slaves for "four hundred
and thirty years to acquire the freedom which was achieved by sending
Moses to the land of Egypt. After liberation from slavery, it was also
necessary to wander in the desert for forty years to reach the promised
land. We also saw that this period of pilgrimage occurred due to the
disobedience of Israel.
10
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Now let a relationship with the work of Jesus Christ. Since Adam, it
took about four thousand years (two thousand years from Adam to
Abraham and two thousand years from Abraham to Jesus Christ) that
Jesus was sent to earth for the deliverance of the children of God from
the slavery of sin.
Just as it took forty years for the people of Israel entered the
Promised Land, will also be taken four thousand years for the children
of God to enter the kingdom of God, by inheritance, namely, a wait of
two thousand years since the promise made Abraham to Jesus Christ
and the remainder over a two thousand years of Jesus until today.

MOSES
ACTS 7:22 And Moses was learned in all the wisdom
of the Egyptians, and was mighty in words and in
deeds.
(ACTS 7:23 And when he was full forty years old, it
came into his heart to visit his brethren the children of
Israel.
ACTS 7:24 And seeing one of them suffer wrong, he
defended him, and avenged him that was oppressed,
and smote the Egyptian:
ACTS 7:25 For he supposed his brethren would have
understood how that God by his hand would deliver
them: but they understood not.
ACTS 7:26 And the next day he shewed himself unto
them as they strove, and would have set them at one
again, saying, Sirs, ye are brethren; why do ye wrong
one to another?
ACTS 7:27 But he that did his neighbour wrong
thrust him away, saying, Who made thee a ruler and
a judge over us?
ACTS 7:28 Wilt thou kill me, as thou diddest the
Egyptian yesterday?
ACTS 7:29 Then fled Moses at this saying, and was a
stranger in the land of Madian, where he begat two
sons.
ACTS 7:30 And when forty years were expired, there
appeared to him in the wilderness of mount Sina an
angel of the Lord in a flame of fire in a bush.
ACTS 7:35 This Moses whom they refused, saying,
Who made thee a ruler and a judge? the same did
God send to be a ruler and a deliverer by the hand of
the angel which appeared to him in the bush.
ACTS 7:36 He brought them out, after that he had

11
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

shewed wonders and signs in the land of Egypt, and


in the Red sea, and in the wilderness forty years.

Here we have three periods of forty years connected with the life of
Moses, all related to a waiting period.
The first period corresponds to the time spent waiting on that to come
into your heart the desire to visit his brothers, the people of Israel,
because God had a purpose for his servant Moses of the deliverance of
his people.
The second period of forty years, corresponds to the time when Moses
was away from his people, until the angel of God appeared in the
wilderness of Mount Sinai.
Finally, the third sentence of forty years, concerns the end of their
journey when Moses receives God's mission to lead his people through
the desert, freeing them from the bondage of Egypt and leading them to
the promised land.

TWELVE SENT TO SPY THE LAND OF CANAAN

NUM 13:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying,


NUM 13:2 Send thou men, that they may search the
land of Canaan, which I give unto the children of
Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a
man, every one a ruler among them.
NUM 13:3 And Moses by the commandment of the
LORD sent them from the wilderness of Paran: all
those men were heads of the children of Israel.
NUM 13:25 And they returned from searching of the
land after forty days.
NUM 13:26 And they went and came to Moses, and
to Aaron, and to all the congregation of the children
of Israel, unto the wilderness of Paran, to Kadesh;
and brought back word unto them, and unto all the
congregation, and showed them the fruit of the land.
NUM 13:27 And they told him, and said, We came
unto the land whither thou sentest us, and surely it
floweth with milk and honey; and this is the fruit of
it.
NUM 13:28 Nevertheless the people be strong that
dwell in the land, and the cities are walled, and very
great: and moreover we saw the children of Anak
there.
NUM 13:29 The Amalekites dwell in the land of the
south: and the Hittites, and the Jebusites, and the
Amorites, dwell in the mountains: and the

12
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Canaanites dwell by the sea, and by the coast of


Jordan.
NUM 13:30 And Caleb stilled the people before
Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess
it; for we are well able to overcome it.
NUM 13:31 But the men that went up with him said,
We be not able to go up against the people; for they
are stronger than we.
NUM 13:32 And they brought up an evil report of the
land which they had searched unto the children of
Israel, saying, The land, through which we have gone
to search it, is a land that eateth up the inhabitants
thereof; and all the people that we saw in it are men
of a great stature.
NUM 13:33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of
Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our
own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their
sight.
NUM 14:26 And the LORD spake unto Moses and
unto Aaron, saying,
NUM 14:27 How long shall I bear with this evil
congregation, which murmur against me? I have
heard the murmurings of the children of Israel,
which they murmur against me.
NUM 14:28 Say unto them, As truly as I live, saith
the LORD, as ye have spoken in mine ears, so will I
do to you:
NUM 14:29 Your carcasses shall fall in this
wilderness; and all that were numbered of you,
according to your whole number, from twenty years
old and upward which have murmured against me.
NUM 14:30 Doubtless ye shall not come into the
land, concerning which I sware to make you dwell
therein, save Caleb the son of Jephunneh, and
Joshua the son of Nun.
NUM 14:31 But your little ones, which ye said should
be a prey, them will I bring in, and they shall know
the land which ye have despised.
NUM 14:32 But as for you, your carcasses, they shall
fall in this wilderness.
NUM 14:33 And your children shall wander in the
wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms,
until your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness.
NUM 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye
searched the land, even forty days, each day for a
year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years,
and ye shall know my breach of promise.

13
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

NUM 14:35 I the LORD have said, I will surely do it


unto all this evil congregation, that are gathered
together against me: in this wilderness they shall be
consumed, and there they shall die.
NUM 14:36 And the men, which Moses sent to
search the land, who returned, and made all the
congregation to murmur against him, by bringing up
a slander upon the land,
NUM 14:37 Even those men that did bring up the evil
report upon the land, died by the plague before the
LORD.
NUM 14:38 But Joshua the son of Nun, and Caleb
the son of Jephunneh, which were of the men that
went to search the land, lived still.

The land that God promised the people of Israel, was not empty, but it
was inhabited by very strong, so that the promise of the land of
Canaan should be won through struggle and perseverance. Could you
turn over the land without major difficulties, a ready-made land
without inhabitants, but the Lord needed to prove the faith of its
people, or if she was up for any challenge that was greater.
With the exception of Joshua and Caleb, all others who searched the
land, they returned all discouraged, behold, the conquest would be
impossible, because of people who lived there. But Joshua and Caleb
believed in the promise of the Lord.
Here, we emphasize again three verses inserted in the text above,
which then repeat:

NUM 13:25 And they returned from searching of the


land after forty days.
NUM 14:33 And your children shall wander in the
wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms,
until your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness.
NUM 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye
searched the land, even forty days, each day for a
year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years,
and ye shall know my breach of promise.

Thus, we see that the Lord God according to his purpose, made for
each day that the earth was glance, to be represented by one year for
the pilgrimage in the desert. In this passage, God reveals in his work, a
prophetic list of day and year. Already, in another passage the Lord
presents a relationship between a day and a millennium, namely:

2PET 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one


thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as one day.

14
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Thus, we have two waiting periods that were related to the promised
land. The first sentence (forty days) was the time that the people of
Israel waited for the earth was peek. Already, the second period (forty
years) was needed so that people could then enter on that land. In
both, the meaning is the same, ie one expects to fulfill God's purpose.
Already in its second letter of Peter, chapter 3, verse 8, the relationship
is between a day and a millennium, that is, what God has appointed
for the seventh day, so too will come to the seventh millennium, and
what was determined to the fourth day, also to be the fourth
millennium, and finally, which has designated the third day will be
consummated in the third millennium, as will be discussed in
subsequent chapters of this work.

PILGRIMAGE OF THE DESERT

After the liberation of Israel from Egypt, it was necessary to "wait" a


period of forty years of wandering in the wilderness, so that people
could reach the land of Canaan.

Through the following verse (8:2 DT), we have the Lord God,
determined the period of forty years in order to humiliate, to taste, to
know what was in the heart of the Jewish people to obey the Lord or
not.

DEUT 2:7 For the LORD thy God hath blessed thee
in all the works of thy hand: he knoweth thy walking
through this great wilderness: these forty years the
LORD thy God hath been with thee; thou hast lacked
nothing.
DEUT 8:2 And thou shalt remember all the way
which the LORD thy God led thee these forty years in
the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to
know what was in thine heart, whether thou
wouldest keep his commandments, or no.
DEUT 8:4 Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee,
neither did thy foot swell, these forty years.

As we said earlier, since the promise made to Abraham, it's been four
thousand years (two thousand years before Jesus and two thousand
years until today), and all we saw was that God's purpose was the
same as had with the people of Israel in the wilderness. In these four
thousand years, sought to prove God and humiliate its people, to
know what was in his heart, keep the commandments or not. And
what we discover? A people that after entering the promised land
remained disobedient, not respecting God's commandments. When
15
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Jesus Christ was sent to consummation of the work, the people did
not receive it, surrendered before the death.

What God tells us and teaches us all this is the


following message: the promise made to Israel in the wilderness, into
the land of Canaan only Joshua and Caleb, who went out of Egypt.
Both believed in God's promise, since even before the difficulties they
faced to possess the promised land, remained firm in their hearts to
confirm the word of God.
And for the promise of the Kingdom of God, how
come it?
As it was with Joshua and Caleb, will also be with us. Even before
large trials, even when Satan wants to show us the defeat, if we
believe firmly in God's word, nailing it in our hearts, and we will
receive the promise with Jesus Christ in the kingdom prepared for the
children of God.

God has shown the promised land for Joshua and Caleb, but it was
still necessary to conquer it. And this achievement was possible only
with the help of God, who would guide them in everything.
Likewise, the Kingdom of God we were shown through Jesus Christ,
only here the conquest of this kingdom will by faith that he is the
Christ, Savior of our souls.

1JN 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of


God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is
begotten of him.
1JN 5:2 By this we know that we love the children of God, when we
love God, and keep his commandments.
1JN 5:3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments:
and his commandments are not grievous.
1JN 5:4 For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this
is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
1JN 5:5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that
Jesus is the Son of God?

THE TEN COMMANDMENTS


When Moses went up the mountain, had to "wait" for forty days and
forty nights to write the Ten Commandments.

EX 34:28 And he was there with the LORD forty days


and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink
water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of the
covenant, the ten commandments.

16
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

DEUT 9:9 When I was gone up into the mount to


receive the tables of stone, even the tables of the
covenant which the LORD made with you, then I
abode in the mount forty days and forty nights, I
neither did eat bread nor drink water:
DEUT 9:11 And it came to pass at the end of forty
days and forty nights, that the LORD gave me the two
tables of stone, even the tables of the covenant.

BUILDING THE SHRINE


We also note the following verses, the constant presence of the number
four at various times when the building of the temple which God spoke
to Moses that his people did.

EX 25:12 And thou shalt cast four rings of gold for it,
and put them in the four corners thereof; and two
rings shall be in the one side of it, and two rings in the
other side of it.
EX 25:25 And thou shalt make unto it a border of an
hand breadth round about, and thou shalt make a
golden crown to the border thereof round about.
EX 25:26 And thou shalt make for it four rings of gold,
and put the rings in the four corners that are on the
four feet thereof.
EX 25:34 And in the candlesticks shall be four bowls
made like unto almonds, with their knops and their
flowers.
EX 26:2 The length of one curtain shall be eight and
twenty cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four
cubits: and every one of the curtains shall have one
measure.
EX 26:8 The length of one curtain shall be thirty
cubits, and the breadth of one curtain four cubits: and
the eleven curtains shall be all of one measure.
EX 26:32 And thou shalt hang it upon four pillars of
shittim wood overlaid with gold: their hooks shall be of
gold, upon the four sockets of silver.
EX 27:2 And thou shalt make the horns of it upon the
four corners thereof: his horns shall be of the same:
and thou shalt overlay it with brass.
EX 27:4 And thou shalt make for it a grate of network
of brass; and upon the net shalt thou make four
brazen rings in the four corners thereof.
EX 27:16 And for the gate of the court shall be an
hanging of twenty cubits, of blue, and purple, and
scarlet, and fine twined linen, wrought with
17
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

needlework: and their pillars shall be four, and their


sockets four.
EX 28:17 And thou shalt set in it settings of stones,
even four rows of stones: the first row shall be a
sardius, a topaz, and a carbuncle: this shall be the
first row.

EX 36:24 And forty sockets of silver he made under


the twenty boards; two sockets under one board for
his two tenons, and two sockets under another board
for his two tenons.
EX 36:26 And their forty sockets of silver; two sockets
under one board, and two sockets under another
board.

DISOBEDIENCE THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL

DEUT 9:13 Furthermore the LORD spake unto me,


saying, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a
stiffnecked people:
DEUT 9:14 Let me alone, that I may destroy them, and
blot out their name from under heaven: and I will
make of thee a nation mightier and greater than they.
DEUT 9:15 So I turned and came down from the
mount, and the mount burned with fire: and the two
tables of the covenant were in my two hands.
DEUT 9:16 And I looked, and, behold, ye had sinned
against the LORD your God, and had made you a
molten calf: ye had turned aside quickly out of the
way which the LORD had commanded you.
DEUT 9:17 And I took the two tables, and cast them
out of my two hands, and brake them before your
eyes.
DEUT 9:18 And I fell down before the LORD, as at the
first, forty days and forty nights: I did neither eat
bread, nor drink water, because of all your sins which
ye sinned, in doing wickedly in the sight of the LORD,
to provoke him to anger.
DEUT 9:19 For I was afraid of the anger and hot
displeasure, wherewith the LORD was wroth against
you to destroy you. But the LORD hearkened unto me
at that time also.
DEUT 9:20 And the LORD was very angry with Aaron
to have destroyed him: and I prayed for Aaron also
the same time.

18
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

DEUT 10:10 And I stayed in the mount, according to


the first time, forty days and forty nights; and the
LORD hearkened unto me at that time also, and the
LORD would not destroy thee.
DEUT 10:11 And the LORD said unto me, Arise, take
thy journey before the people, that they may go in and
possess the land, which I sware unto their fathers to
give unto them.

Forty days and forty nights Moses was on the


mountain to receive the commandments, it was necessary for the
people of Israel disobeyed God and made a molten calf. With so many
miracles that God had already done before the eyes of the people, this
waiting period was short enough for disobedience.
Nowadays, we have seen a situation quite similar. Just as it took a
little time (forty days) so that the people walked on the wrong path of
idolatry, too little time was enough after the resurrection of Jesus
Christ to the people who create and pass to worship images, whether of
wood, metal, plaster etc.. At the beginning of the early church, it was
thought about a quick lap of Jesus (as well as the people of Israel
waited too rapid descent of the mountain of Moses). However, finding
the people that Jesus took in return, chose to carve statues to delight
the eyes and solace to the soul.

JOSHUA GIVES Hebron to Caleb

JOSH 14:6 Then the children of Judah came unto


Joshua in Gilgal: and Caleb the son of Jephunneh the
Kenezite said unto him, Thou knowest the thing that
the LORD said unto Moses the man of God concerning
me and thee in Kadeshbarnea.
JOSH 14:7 Forty years old was I when Moses the
servant of the LORD sent me from Kadeshbarnea to
espy out the land; and I brought him word again as it
was in mine heart.
JOSH 14:8 Nevertheless my brethren that went up
with me made the heart of the people melt: but I
wholly followed the LORD my God.
JOSH 14:9 And Moses sware on that day, saying,
Surely the land whereon thy feet have trodden shall
be thine inheritance, and thy children's for ever,
because thou hast wholly followed the LORD my God.
JOSH 14:10 And now, behold, the LORD hath kept me
alive, as he said, these forty and five years, even
since the LORD spake this word unto Moses, while the
children of Israel wandered in the wilderness: and
19
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

now, lo, I am this day fourscore and five years old.


JOSH 14:11 As yet I am as strong this day as I was in
the day that Moses sent me: as my strength was then,
even so is my strength now, for war, both to go out,
and to come in.
JOSH 14:12 Now therefore give me this mountain,
whereof the LORD spake in that day; for thou
heardest in that day how the Anakims were there,
and that the cities were great and fenced: if so be the
LORD will be with me, then I shall be able to drive
them out, as the LORD said.
JOSH 14:13 And Joshua blessed him, and gave unto
Caleb the son of Jephunneh Hebron for an inheritance.
JOSH 14:14 Hebron therefore became the inheritance
of Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenezite unto this
day, because that he wholly followed the LORD God of
Israel.
JOSH 14:15 And the name of Hebron before was
Kirjatharba; which Arba was a great man among the
Anakims. And the land had rest from war.

Here we have two periods, ie, the first in which


Caleb waited forty years for Moses sent to spy the land of Hebron.
Having persevered in following the Lord God, Moses swore at that
moment, that land would be his (Caleb) and their children, an
inheritance forever.
In the second period, Caleb waited forty-five
years after the oath of Moses, to receive for an inheritance the land of
Hebron have continued to persevere in following the Lord God.

DIVISION OF LAND TO THE PEOPLE


When the division of land to the tribes of Israel, we note that appears
in many verses also the number four, but let's see:

JOSH 19:7 Ain, Remmon, and Ether, and Ashan; four


cities and their villages:
JOSH 21:18 Anathoth with her suburbs, and Almon
with her suburbs; four cities.
JOSH 21:22 And Kibzaim with her suburbs, and
Bethhoron with her suburbs; four cities.
JOSH 21:24 Aijalon with her suburbs, Gathrimmon
with her suburbs; four cities.

20
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

JOSH 21:29 Jarmuth with her suburbs, Engannim


with her suburbs; four cities.

her suburbs; four cities.
JOSH 21:37 Kedemoth with her suburbs, and
Mephaath with her suburbs; four cities.
JOSH 21:39 Heshbon with her suburbs, Jazer with
her suburbs; four cities in all.

PERIOD OF THE JUDGES


Had the people of Israel to "wait" for a period of nearly four hundred
and fifty years, that God would speak again through the prophet, and
during this period was entrusted to the judges, the task of caring for
these people.

ACTS 13:16 Then Paul stood up, and beckoning with


his hand said, Men of Israel, and ye that fear God,
give audience.
ACTS 13:17 The God of this people of Israel chose our
fathers, and exalted the people when they dwelt as
strangers in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm
brought he them out of it.
ACTS 13:18 And about the time of forty years suffered
he their manners in the wilderness.
ACTS 13:19 And when he had destroyed seven
nations in the land of Chanaan, he divided their land
to them by lot.
ACTS 13:20 And after that he gave unto them judges
about the space of four hundred and fifty years, until
Samuel the prophet.
ACTS 13:21 And afterward they desired a king: and
God gave unto them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the
tribe of Benjamin, by the space of forty years.

FOUR MEN IN THE FURNACE

DAN 3:1 Nebuchadnezzar the king made an image of


gold, whose height was threescore cubits, and the
breadth thereof six cubits: he set it up in the plain of
Dura, in the province of Babylon.
DAN 3:2 Then Nebuchadnezzar the king sent to gather
together the princes, the governors, and the captains,
the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors, the
sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, to come to
the dedication of the image which Nebuchadnezzar
the king had set up.
DAN 3:3 Then the princes, the governors, and
captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counsellors,
the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were
gathered together unto the dedication of the image
that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up; and they
stood before the image that Nebuchadnezzar had set
up.
DAN 3:4 Then an herald cried aloud, To you it is
commanded, O people, nations, and languages,
DAN 3:5 That at what time ye hear the sound of the
cornet, flute, harp, sackbut, psaltery, dulcimer, and all
kinds of musick, ye fall down and worship the golden
image that Nebuchadnezzar the king hath set up:
DAN 3:6 And whoso falleth not down and worshippeth
shall the same hour be cast into the midst of a burning
fiery furnace.
DAN 3:12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set
over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego; these men, O king, have not

Abednego, and to cast them into the burning fiery


furnace.

DAN 3:25 He answered and said, Lo, I see four men
loose, walking in the midst of the fire, and they have
no hurt; and the form of the fourth is like the Son of
God.
DAN 3:27 And the princes, governors, and captains,
and the king's counsellors, being gathered together,
saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no
power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither

passed on them.

WORD OF THE LORD The ZACARIAS


After four years have passed in the reign of Darius, the word of the

THE NEW TESTAMENT

TEMPTATION OF JESUS

MT 4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty


nights, he was afterward an hungred.
MK 1:13 And he was there in the wilderness forty
days, tempted of Satan; and was with the wild
beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
LK 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in
those days he did eat nothing: and when they were
ended, he afterward hungered.

After being baptized, Jesus had to wait a period of forty days, during
which he was tempted by Satan, so that he could start his ministry
preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God.

PROPHECY OF JESUS
In the following parable, Jesus makes reference to the period of four
months, so prophetic, as well as in the period since the harvest has
come, from Abraham to the present day, comprises a period of
approximately four thousand years, which is also already reached the
Kingdom of God.

JN 4:35 Say not ye, There are yet four months, and
then cometh harvest? behold, I say unto you, Lift up
your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are white
already to harvest.
REV 14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud,
and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man,
having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a
sharp sickle.
REV 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple,
crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud,
Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for
thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

26
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

REV 14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his


sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

RESURRECTION OF LAZARUS

When Jesus was told of the sickness of Lazarus, he knew that Lazarus
would suffer and rise again after four days. Again the four appears in
the Bible to show that this period corresponds to a waiting time until
the Lord Jesus, to resurrect the glory of God, the Son of God might be
glorified thereby.

JN 11:4 When Jesus heard that, he said, This


sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God,
that the Son of God might be glorified thereby.
JN 11:17 Then when Jesus came, he found that he
had lain in the grave four days already.
JN 11:39 Jesus said, Take ye away the stone.
Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto
him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been
dead four days.

JESUS RISEN

ACTS 1:1 The former treatise have I made, O


Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and
teach,
ACTS 1:2 Until the day in which he was taken up,
after that he through the Holy Ghost had given
commandments unto the apostles whom he had
chosen:
ACTS 1:3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after
his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of
them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining
to the kingdom of God:
ACTS 1:4 And, being assembled together with them,
commanded them that they should not depart from
Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father,
which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
ACTS 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye
shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days
hence.

27
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

We also have in this passage, that Jesus Christ


was resurrected after he waited for a period of forty days, that was
raised to heaven, and taken to the Father

NUMBER THREE

Obey the Lord

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

Adam-Abraham-Jesus
For the period from Adam to Abraham, it took up
about two thousand years. Likewise, from Abraham to Jesus, it was
another two thousand years. Finally, from Jesus until today, also
traveled to two thousand years.
So our story is divided by God through these three
men. The first, that God used to start your project. The second was
when God revealed his promise, he had prepared for her children, a
land to be handed to those who believe through faith.
And finally, the third man to fulfill the promise and
accomplishment, not only Jews but also for everyone who believes in
him. We conclude that God in these three males (Adam, Abraham and
Jesus), has prepared three periods of two thousand years, ending up
his project, with the beginning of the seventh millennium.

Abraham-Isaac-Jacob
29
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

In the Holy Book, three men were raised by God in


the Old Testament period, which was written for a story so much
promise (made by our God) but also of faith demonstrated by these
three men, whose design was later consummated with the coming of
our Lord Jesus Christ.

THREE MESSENGERS appeared to Abraham

GEN 18:1 And the LORD appeared unto him in the


plains of Mamre: and he sat in the tent door in the
heat of the day;
GEN 18:2 And he lift up his eyes and looked, and, lo,
three men stood by him: and when he saw them, he
ran to meet them from the tent door, and bowed
himself toward the ground,
GEN 18:3 And said, My LORD, if now I have found
favor in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from
thy servant:
GEN 18:4 Let a little water, I pray you, be fetched,
and wash your feet, and rest yourselves under the
tree:
GEN 18:5 And I will fetch a morsel of bread, and
comfort ye your hearts; after that ye shall pass on: for
therefore are ye come to your servant. And they said,
So do, as thou hast said.
GEN 18:6 And Abraham hastened into the tent unto
Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures
of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the
hearth.
GEN 18:7 And Abraham ran unto the herd, and
fetched a calf tender and good, and gave it unto a
young man; and he hasted to dress it.
GEN 18:8 And he took butter, and milk, and the calf
which he had dressed, and set it before them; and he
stood by them under the tree, and they did eat.
GEN 18:9 And they said unto him, Where is Sarah thy
wife? And he said, Behold, in the tent.
GEN 18:10 And he said, I will certainly return unto
thee according to the time of life; and, lo, Sarah thy
wife shall have a son. And Sarah heard it in the tent
door, which was behind him.

JOSEPH PRESENTS THE PHARAOH

Numbers in the Bible and the end time

GEN 41:44 And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I am


Pharaoh, and without thee shall no man lift up his
hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.
GEN 41:45 And Pharaoh called Joseph's name
Zaphnathpaaneah; and he gave him to wife Asenath
the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph
went out over all the land of Egypt.
GEN 41:46 And Joseph was thirty years old when he
stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went
out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went
throughout all the land of Egypt.

Weeping and mourning for Moses

DEUT 34:8 And the children of Israel wept for Moses


in the plains of Moab thirty days: so the days of
weeping and mourning for Moses were ended.

AGE OF DAVID

2SAM 5:4 David was thirty years old when he began


to reign, and he reigned forty years.

PRAYER OF DANIEL
Just as our Lord Jesus prayed for "three" times before being delivered
to the prophet Daniel also prayed for three times the Lord God.

DAN 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing


was signed, he went into his house; and his windows
being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he
kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and
prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did
aforetime.

THE LORD COMES ON MOUNT SINAI


EX 19:1 In the third month, when the children of Israel
were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day
came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
EX 19:2 For they were departed from Rephidim, and
were come to the desert of Sinai, and had pitched in
the wilderness; and there Israel camped before the
mount.
EX 19:3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD
called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus
shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the
children of Israel;
EX 19:4 Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians,
and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you
unto myself.
EX 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice
indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a
peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the
earth is mine:
EX 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests,
and an holy nation. These are the words which thou
shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
EX 19:7 And Moses came and called for the elders of
the people, and laid before their faces all these words
which the LORD commanded him.
EX 19:8 And all the people answered together, and
said, All that the LORD hath spoken we will do. And
Moses returned the words of the people unto the
LORD.
EX 19:9 And the LORD said unto Moses, Lo, I come
unto thee in a thick cloud, that the people may hear
when I speak with thee, and believe thee for ever. And
Moses told the words of the people unto the LORD.
EX 19:10 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the
people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and
let them wash their clothes,
EX 19:11 And be ready against the third day: for the
third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all
the people upon mount Sinai.
EX 19:12 And thou shalt set bounds unto the people
round about, saying, Take heed to yourselves, that ye
32
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

go not up into the mount, or touch the border of it:


whosoever toucheth the mount shall be surely put to
death:
EX 19:13 There shall not an hand touch it, but he
shall surely be stoned, or shot through; whether it be
beast or man, it shall not live: when the trumpet
soundeth long, they shall come up to the mount.
EX 19:14 And Moses went down from the mount unto
the people, and sanctified the people; and they
washed their clothes.
EX 19:15 And he said unto the people, Be ready
against the third day: come not at your wives.
EX 19:16 And it came to pass on the third day in the
morning, that there were thunders and lightnings, and
a thick cloud upon the mount, and the voice of the
trumpet exceeding loud; so that all the people that
was in the camp trembled.
EX 19:17 And Moses brought forth the people out of
the camp to meet with God; and they stood at the
nether part of the mount.
EX 19:18 And mount Sinai was altogether on a
smoke, because the LORD descended upon it in fire:
and the smoke thereof ascended as the smoke of a
furnace, and the whole mount quaked greatly.
EX 19:19 And when the voice of the trumpet sounded
long, and waxed louder and louder, Moses spake, and
God answered him by a voice.
EX 19:20 And the LORD came down upon mount
Sinai, on the top of the mount: and the LORD called
Moses up to the top of the mount; and Moses went up.
EX 19:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go down,
charge the people, lest they break through unto the
LORD to gaze, and many of them perish.
EX 19:22 And let the priests also, which come near to
the LORD, sanctify themselves, lest the LORD break
forth upon them.
EX 19:23 And Moses said unto the LORD, The people
cannot come up to mount Sinai: for thou chargedst us,
saying, Set bounds about the mount, and sanctify it.
EX 19:24 And the LORD said unto him, Away, get
thee down, and thou shalt come up, thou, and Aaron
with thee: but let not the priests and the people break
through to come up unto the LORD, lest he break forth
upon them.
EX 19:25 So Moses went down unto the people, and
spake unto them.

Here we have a prophetic passage relating the

above text, highlight verses allow for better understanding:

EX 19:1 In the third month, when the children of Israel


were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, the same day
came they into the wilderness of Sinai.
EX 19:3 And Moses went up unto God, and the LORD
called unto him out of the mountain, saying, Thus
shalt thou say to the house of Jacob, and tell the
children of Israel;
EX 19:5 Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice
indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a
peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the
earth is mine:
EX 19:6 And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests,
and an holy nation. These are the words which thou
shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
EX 19:10 And the LORD said unto Moses, Go unto the
people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and
let them wash their clothes,
EX 19:11 And be ready against the third day: for the
third day the LORD will come down in the sight of all
the people upon mount Sinai.

The first verse shows that in the third month of


removal of Israel from Egypt, the Lord spoke to Moses for his people.
We know that the people of Israel out of Egypt, corresponds exactly to
the third month of the end of the slavery of that people. Also, the
sending of our Lord Jesus Christ, was to release the children of God
from the slavery of sin. Therefore, as occurred on that occasion, also in
the third millennium the end of slavery of sin, the Lord will come to
speak to his people.
Already, the last two verses above also reveal a
prophetic passage, inasmuch as the Lord commands the people to
sanctify themselves in two days, washing their clothes, for the third
day, be ready, when the Lord descends on the eyes of all people.
The two days represent the two millennia, counted from the
resurrection of Jesus (liberation from the bondage of sin) period in
which the Lord has determined that your children wash their clothes,
performing well in white robes before the Lord. Finally, the third day
represents the third millennium, when the Lord descends in the eyes of
all people.

MT 25:31 When the Son of man shall come in his


glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he
sit upon the throne of his glory:
MT 25:32 And before him shall be gathered all
nations: and he shall separate them one from another,
as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

THE LORD HEARS Hezekiah

2KINGS 20:1 In those days was Hezekiah sick unto


death. And the prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came
to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set
thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live.
2KINGS 20:2 Then he turned his face to the wall, and
prayed unto the LORD, saying,
2KINGS 20:3 I beseech thee, O LORD, remember now
how I have walked before thee in truth and with a
perfect heart, and have done that which is good in thy
sight. And Hezekiah wept sore.
2KINGS 20:4 And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was
gone out into the middle court, that the word of the
LORD came to him, saying,
2KINGS 20:5 Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the
captain of my people, Thus saith the LORD, the God of
David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen
thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day
thou shalt go up unto the house of the LORD.

ESTER BEFORE THE KING

ESTHER 5:1 Now it came to pass on the third day,


that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the
inner court of the king's house, over against the king's
house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the
royal house, over against the gate of the house.

THE NEW TESTAMENT

THE THREE WISE MEN

35
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

MT 2:1 Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of


Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there
came wise men from the east to Jerusalem,
MT 2:2 Saying, Where is he that is born King of the
Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are
come to worship him.
MT 2:11 And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother, and
fell down, and worshipped him: and when they had
opened their treasures, they presented unto him gifts;
gold, and frankincense and myrrh.

BOY JESUS IN TEMPLE


LK 2:46 And it came to pass, that after three days
they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the
doctors, both hearing them, and asking them
questions.

BAPTISM OF JESUS

LK 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, it


came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and
praying, the heaven was opened,
LK 3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily
shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from
heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee
I am well pleased.
LK 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty
years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of
Joseph, which was the son of Heli,

AGE OF JESUS

Luke, Chapter 3, says that when Jesus began his ministry,


was about 30 years. Since the book of John describes three until Easter in
which Jesus goes to Jerusalem.
Therefore, Jesus having about thirty years old when his
baptism, added three more years of Passover, when Jesus went to Jerusalem,
totaling 33 years until his death and resurrection.
The number three appears at the moment so intense, that
note was baptized at thirty years old, and was resurrected with thirty-three
years.
The most fascinating and revealing, is the number we get

36
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

when we subtract the number of his death with his baptism (33-30), which will
result in number three.
So we have to Jesus from his baptism until his death and
resurrection, by will and purpose of God, preached the gospel of the kingdom
of God, for a period of three years.
Although the Lord Jesus came to preach the gospel of the Kingdom of God,
only about four thousand years after Adam's creation, said United was already
prepared by the Father before the foundation of the world.

MT 25:34 Then shall the King say unto them on his


right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the
kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the
world:

TEMPTATION OF JESUS

MT 4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the spirit into the


wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
MT 4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty
nights, he was afterward an hungred.
MT 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If
thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be
made bread.
MT 4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man
shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that
proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
MT 4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city,
and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
MT 4:6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God,
cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his
angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands
they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy
foot against a stone.
MT 4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou
shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
MT 4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an
exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the
kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
MT 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give
thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
MT 4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence,
Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord
thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

37

MT 4:11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold,


angels came and ministered unto him.
During the period that remained in the desert Jesus
was tempted three times by Satan.

JESUS TURNS WATER INTO WINE

(JN 2:1 And the third day there was a marriage in


Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there:
JN 2:2 And both Jesus was called, and his disciples,
to the marriage.
JN 2:3 And when they wanted wine, the mother of
Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine.
JN 2:4 Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to
do with thee? mine hour is not yet come.
JN 2:5 His mother saith unto the servants,
Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it.
JN 2:6 And there were set there six waterpots of
stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews,
containing two or three firkins apiece.
JN 2:7 Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with
water. And they filled them up to the brim.
JN 2:8 And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and
bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it.
JN 2:9 When the ruler of the feast had tasted the
water that was made wine, and knew not whence it
was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;)
the governor of the feast called the bridegroom,
JN 2:10 And saith unto him, Every man at the
beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men
have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou
hast kept the good wine until now.
JN 2:11 This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana
of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his
disciples believed on him.

Here we have a biblical passage, representing two


prophetic situations, namely: a) Jesus predicts the supply of blood for the
forgiveness of his sins, his resurrection on the third day, and b) around the
third millennium.

Where to read this passage, when Jesus said to his mother


who was not yet her hour has come, understood to be referring not even be
that moment when you should begin to manifest themselves as children of
God, fulfilling his great miracles.

38
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

However, two words in this passage changed my thinking:


"Third" and "wine". Let us examine each one:
* Wine: We know that the wine in the life of Jesus
symbolizes his blood. Now his mother was asking our Lord Jesus when he
served wine was not yet the time, a situation that came only occur in the Holy
Supper, when Jesus part and serves the bread and wine to his apostles
symbolizing his flesh and blood that was shed for many for the remission of
sins. Arrival was not yet time to serve our Lord Jesus the wine (his blood). Note
that although the Lord Jesus worked the miracle, turning water into wine, he
himself did not serve, but determines to be taken to the master of ceremonies.
Then, with the master of ceremonies tasted the wine, he directed his speech to
the groom's party, saying that wine was better than that served at the
beginning of the party. For the master of ceremonies, who offered the wine
was the groom's party and not Jesus Christ.
Our Lord Jesus came to earth to do exactly as the Father had appointed him,
or he had to accomplish all the works that received the mission of the Father,
hence the reason of the prophetic words spoken to his mother in Chapter 2,
verse 4 when he said: "Woman, what have I to do with you?", ie he wanted to
say that only serve wine at the time that the Father had ordered that this be
done.
* Day Three: As the Lord Jesus himself said, yet it was time
to serve him wine, symbolizing his blood. This passage occurs just when Jesus
begins his ministry, as the word says that from there, Jesus has begun its
miracles.
We also know that Jesus promoted its mission by preaching the gospel of
God's Kingdom for a period of three years. Thus, we conclude that it would be
necessary to spend a further three years that Jesus came to serve the wine at
the Last Supper. That is why the expression third day at the beginning of
Chapter 2 of John's gospel, that is, there is a prophetic sense in which the third
day was the wedding at Cana in Galilee, would be the third year thereafter, so
that wine was offered by him in the holy supper.
Finally, the third day of the quoted verse also represents
another prophetic revelation, because after his resurrection, we are currently in
the third millennium in which Jesus will return to sit with him and partake of a
new supper when he prophesied of the latter.

MT 26:27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and


gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
MT 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
MT 26:29 But I say unto you, I will not drink
henceforth of this fruit of the vine, until that day when
I drink it new with you in my Father's kingdom.

THREE TABERNACLES
39
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

MT 17:4 Then answered Peter, and said unto Jesus,


Lord, it is good for us to be here: if thou wilt, let us
make here three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for
Moses, and one for Elias.
LK 9:33 And it came to pass, as they departed from
him, Peter said unto Jesus, Master, it is good for us to
be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for
thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elias: not
knowing what he said.

CROWD HEARS JESUS

MT 15:32 Then Jesus called his disciples unto him,


and said, I have compassion on the multitude,
because they continue with me now three days, and
have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away
fasting, lest they faint in the way.
(MK 8:2 I have compassion on the multitude, because
they have now been with me three days, and have
nothing to eat:

The crowd followed when Jesus was not concerned with what he had to eat or
drink, for the word that Jesus said was serving as food for people.

Rebuilding of the temple

(JN 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy


this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.
JN 2:20 Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was
this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in
three days?

PARABLE OF YEAST

LK 13:21 It is like leaven, which a woman took and


hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was
leavened.

40
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Parable of robbers

LK 10:36 Which now of these three, thinkest thou,


was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves?

Parable of importunate friend

LK 11:5 And he said unto them, Which of you shall


have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and
say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves;

PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE

LK 13:7 Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard,


Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this
fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it
the ground?

This parable is a prophetic passage, because we are in the third millennium


after the resurrection of Jesus, during which he was appointed to the fig tree
gives its fruit will be cut after which the cast into the fire to be burned. Note that
the parable shows that the vineyard had to constantly look for fruit on the fig
tree and not always found. Jesus is all the time, hoping that their children will
bear fruit, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God and bringing the soul
from darkness to light, thus attaining salvation.

JESUS, MARY AND MARTHA - THREE MEETINGS

MARIA RECOGNIZES THE LIGHT

LK 10:38 Now it came to pass, as they went, that he


entered into a certain village: and a certain woman
named Martha received him into her house.
LK 10:39 And she had a sister called Mary, which
also sat at Jesus' feet, and heard his word.
LK 10:40 But Martha was cumbered about much
serving, and came to him, and said, Lord, dost thou
not care that my sister hath left me to serve alone? bid
her therefore that she help me.
LK 10:41 And Jesus answered and said unto her,
Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about
41
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

many things:
LK 10:42 But one thing is needful: and Mary hath
chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away
from her.

MARIA DE JESUS TO TOE


(JN 11:28 And when she had so said, she went her
way, and called Mary her sister secretly, saying, The
Master is come, and calleth for thee.
JN 11:29 As soon as she heard that, she arose
quickly, and came unto him.
JN 11:30 Now Jesus was not yet come into the town,
but was in that place where Martha met him.
JN 11:31 The Jews then which were with her in the
house, and comforted her, when they saw Mary, that
she rose up hastily and went out, followed her,
saying, She goeth unto the grave to weep there.
JN 11:32 Then when Mary was come where Jesus
was, and saw him, she fell down at his feet, saying
unto him, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother
had not died.
JN 11:33 When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and
the Jews also weeping which came with her, he
groaned in the spirit, and was troubled.
JN 11:34 And said, Where have ye laid him? They
said unto him, Lord, come and see.
JN 11:35 Jesus wept.

MARY ANOINTS JESUS’FEET

(JN 12:1 Then Jesus six days before the passover


came to Bethany, where Lazarus was, which had
been dead, whom he raised from the dead.
JN 12:2 There they made him a supper; and Martha
served: but Lazarus was one of them that sat at the
table with him.
JN 12:3 Then took Mary a pound of ointment of
spikenard, very costly, and anointed the feet of Jesus,
and wiped his feet with her hair: and the house was
filled with the odour of the ointment.

42
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

We find in the gospels, three times when describing the


encounter between Jesus and Martha and her sister, Maria. In three games,
something tells us the behavior of Mary: the three situations, unlike Martha,
she throws herself at Jesus' feet, worshiping Him: at first to hear Him, the
second to cry at his feet, and third time to anoint His feet with ointment of pure
nard. This passage teaches us that during our life we will be in a certain way
as Mary, namely a first contact with Jesus, hear His words will be amazed at
his teachings with the truth that is in his word.
However, since a second phase, which will happen on a
busy day and cry at his feet, asking the console, give us strength to walk and
move on. Finally, after being comforted, then we recognize that only God can
give us life, and "perfume"more expensive than we have in our lives, will be to
anoint His feet, worshiping and praising His Holy Name.

JESUS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE

JN 14:1 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in


God, believe also in me.
JN 14:2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it
were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a
place for you.
JN 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will
come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I
am, there ye may be also.
JN 14:4 And whither I go ye know, and the way ye
know.
JN 14:5 Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not
whither thou goest; and how can we know the way?
JN 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by
me.
JN 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known
my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him,
and have seen him.
JN 14:8 Philip saith unto him, Lord, shew us the
Father, and it sufficeth us.
JN 14:9 Jesus saith unto him, Have I been so long
time with you, and yet hast thou not known me,
Philip? he that hath seen me hath seen the Father;
and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father?
JN 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father,
and the Father in me? the words that I speak unto you
I speak not of myself: but the Father that dwelleth in
me, he doeth the works.
JN 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the
43
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Father in me: or else believe me for the very works'


sake.
JN 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that
believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also;
and greater works than these shall he do; because I
go unto my Father.
JN 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name,
that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the
Son.
JN 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will
do it.
JN 14:15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.

Jesus said to be three things: the way, the truth and


the life. No one comes to the Father except through Him Jesus taught us that
tight and narrow is the path that leads to the Kingdom of God. Through the
words that Jesus made, we can reach an understanding of truth, since we
believe that Jesus is the Son of God. Finally, he is the living bread that came
down from heaven. Whoever eats this bread will never die but have eternal life.

BETRAYAL OF JUDAS

MT 26:15 And said unto them, What will ye give me,


and I will deliver him unto you? And they covenanted
with him for thirty pieces of silver. (
(MT 27:9 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by
Jeremy the prophet, saying, And they took the thirty
pieces of silver, the price of him that was valued,
whom they of the children of Israel did value;

PETER DENIES JESUS

MT 26:34 Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee,


That this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny
me thrice.
(MK 14:30 And Jesus saith unto him, Verily I say unto
thee, That this day, even in this night, before the cock
crow twice, thou shalt deny me thrice.
MT 26:75 And Peter remembered the word of Jesus,
which said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt
deny me thrice. And he went out, and wept bitterly.

JESUS IS prayer in Gethsemane


44
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

MT 26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place


called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit
ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
MT 26:37 And he took with him Peter and the two
sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very
heavy.
MT 26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is
exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here,
and watch with me.
MT 26:39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his
face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be
possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not
as I will, but as thou wilt.
MT 26:40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and
findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could
ye not watch with me one hour?
MT 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into
temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is
weak.
MT 26:42 He went away again the second time, and
prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass
away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
MT 26:43 And he came and found them asleep again:
for their eyes were heavy.
MT 26:44 And he left them, and went away again,
and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
MT 26:45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith
unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold,
the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed
into the hands of sinners.
MT 26:46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand
that doth betray me.

Here, the three appear not only at a time, but


in two.
When Jesus came into the garden of Gethsemane, he told
his disciples to wait there while he went to pray. Right now, it carries "three"
apostles, Peter and the two sons of Zebedee.
During the time when Jesus was praying, we have the
prayer was held in three stages, described in verses 39, 42 and 44 of Chapter
26.
In this passage, we learn something important in our Christian life, when Jesus
teaches us to watch and pray always, lest we fall into temptation.

MT 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into


temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is

45
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

weak.

Jesus before the Sanhedrin, Pilate, Herod


SANHEDRIN

LK 22:66 And as soon as it was day, the elders of the


people and the chief priests and the scribes came
together, and led him into their council, saying,
LK 22:67 Art thou the Christ? tell us. And he said unto
them, If I tell you, ye will not believe:

PILATE

LK 23:1 And the whole multitude of them arose, and


led him unto Pilate.
LK 23:2 And they began to accuse him, saying, We
found this fellow perverting the nation, and forbidding
to give tribute to Caesar, saying that he himself is
Christ a King.
LK 23:3 And Pilate asked him, saying, Art thou the
King of the Jews? And he answered him and said,
Thou sayest it.

HEROD

LK 23:8 And when Herod saw Jesus, he was


exceeding glad: for he was desirous to see him of a
long season, because he had heard many things of
him; and he hoped to have seen some miracle done by
him.

During the period in which Jesus is accused, he is


brought before three authorities: the Sanhedrin, Pilate and King Herod, the
Roman state representative.

PILATE INSISTS ON FREE JESUS

LK 23:13 And Pilate, when he had called together the


chief priests and the rulers and the people,
LK 23:14 Said unto them, Ye have brought this man
unto me, as one that perverteth the people: and,
behold, I, having examined him before you, have
46
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

found no fault in this man touching those things


whereof ye accuse him:
LK 23:15 No, nor yet Herod: for I sent you to him; and,
lo, nothing worthy of death is done unto him.
LK 23:16 I will therefore chastise him, and release
him.
LK 23:17 (For of necessity he must release one unto
them at the feast.)
LK 23:18 And they cried out all at once, saying, Away
with this man, and release unto us Barabbas:
LK 23:19 (Who for a certain sedition made in the city,
and for murder, was cast into prison.)
LK 23:20 Pilate therefore, willing to release Jesus,
spake again to them.
LK 23:21 But they cried, saying, Crucify him, crucify
him.
LK 23:22 And he said unto them the third time, Why,
what evil hath he done? I have found no cause of
death in him: I will therefore chastise him, and let him
go.
LK 23:23 And they were instant with loud voices,
requiring that he might be crucified. And the voices of
them and of the chief priests prevailed.
LK 23:24 And Pilate gave sentence that it should be
as they required.

The Crucifixion

MK 15:22 And they bring him unto the place Golgotha,


which is, being interpreted, The place of a skull.
MK 15:23 And they gave him to drink wine mingled
with myrrh: but he received it not.
MK 15:24 And when they had crucified him, they
parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what
every man should take.
MK 15:25 And it was the third hour, and they
crucified him.
MK 15:26 And the superscription of his accusation
was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
MK 15:27 And with him they crucify two thieves; the
one on his right hand, and the other on his left.
MK 15:28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith,
And he was numbered with the transgressors.

The three have meant so much in the life of Jesus


Christ, since as in verse 15 above shows, even when He was crucified, the
47
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

three also followed his career here on earth.

THREE CRUCIFIED

JN 19:17 And he bearing his cross went forth into a


place called the place of a skull, which is called in the
Hebrew Golgotha:
JN 19:18 Where they crucified him, and two other
with him, on either side one, and Jesus in the midst.
JN 19:19 And Pilate wrote a title, and put it on the
cross. And the writing was JESUS OF NAZARETH THE
KING OF THE JEWS.

THREE HOURS OF DARKNESS ON THE GROUND

MT 27:45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness


over all the land unto the ninth hour.
MT 27:46 And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a
loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is
to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
MT 27:47 Some of them that stood there, when they
heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias.
MT 27:48 And straightway one of them ran, and took
a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a
reed, and gave him to drink.
MT 27:49 The rest said, Let be, let us see whether
Elias will come to save him.
MT 27:50 Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud
voice, yielded up the ghost.
LK 23:44 And it was about the sixth hour, and there
was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour.
LK 23:45 And the sun was darkened, and the veil of
the temple was rent in the midst.
LK 23:46 And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice,
he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit:
and having said thus, he gave up the ghost.

During the three hours of darkness over all the


earth, we have for reading the scriptures during this period, God seems
to have been absent for a short while the presence of Jesus, but never
ceased to protect him. Our Lord Jesus said the phrase: "God, my God,
why hast thou forsaken me?", Not because of their suffering, because

48
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

He already knew everything that was going to pass us by.


In those three hours of darkness over all the earth,
departed from God, to show us (and teach us) that Jesus still on the
cross, suffering, suffering a huge pain, moments before delivering his
spirit, he also believe in the Father, saying perhaps the most important
sentence of his work with the consummation of all that was done by
the will of the Father, saying: "Father, into thy hands I commend my
spirit."
A lifetime without sin, throughout time, through
temptations, snares of Satan, could consummate his work, when he
gave his spirit to the Father, without spot or blemish, so that we could
achieve eternal life. Thus we have with this passage, which at times we
think we are missing God in our lives, we still believe, that just never
forget these moments, our Father is even closer eye on us and for our
souls and expecting a delivery Unconditional our spirit in your hands.

RESURRECTION OF JESUS

MK 8:31 And he began to teach them, that the Son of


man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the
elders, and of the chief priests, and scribes, and be
killed, and after three days rise again.

THREE EXPRESSIONS OF JESUS RISEN

(JN 21:14 This is now the third time that Jesus


shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was
risen from the dead.

It questioned three times PEDRO JESUS

JN 21:15 So when they had dined, Jesus saith to


Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more
than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou
knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my
lambs.
JN 21:16 He saith to him again the second time,
Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto
him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith

49
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

unto him, Feed my sheep.


JN 21:17 He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son
of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because
he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And
he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou
knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed
my sheep.

In these verses, the same Peter who denied Jesus three times before the cock
crows, likewise confirmed in his words that he loved Jesus, when questioned
by this.

JESUS AND THE ACHIEVEMENT OF SCRIPTURE

LK 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words


which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that
all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the
law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms,
concerning me.

Before the coming of our Lord Jesus, God in his purpose,


which was prepared made the prophetic announcement of the coming of the
Savior, at three times the Holy Bible: the Law of Moses, the prophets and
finally through the Psalms.

FAITH, HOPE AND LOVE THE

1COR 13:1 Though I speak with the tongues of men


and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as
sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
1COR 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy,
and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and
though I have all faith, so that I could remove
mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
1COR 13:3 And though I bestow all my goods to feed
the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and
have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
1COR 13:4 Charity suffereth long, and is kind; charity
envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed
up,
1COR 13:5 Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh
not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;
50
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

1COR 13:6 Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the


truth;
1COR 13:7 Beareth all things, believeth all things,
hopeth all things, endureth all things.
1COR 13:8 Charity never faileth: but whether there be
prophecies, they shall fail; whether there be tongues,
they shall cease; whether there be knowledge, it shall
vanish away.
1COR 13:9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in
part.
1COR 13:10 But when that which is perfect is come,
then that which is in part shall be done away.
1COR 13:11 When I was a child, I spake as a child, I
understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I
became a man, I put away childish things.
1COR 13:12 For now we see through a glass, darkly;
but then face to face: now I know in part; but then
shall I know even as also I am known.
1COR 13:13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity,
these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

As the word reveals to us, as we await the return of


Jesus Christ, we must stand in faith, hope and love. Paul, however, teaches us
that the three largest of these is love. And why?
But while we wait for the return of our Lord Jesus Christ, by faith, hope and
love we have in our hearts is that so we proceeded. However, when we stand
before Jesus and to achieve the salvation of our souls, faith and hope will be
exhausted, since these were necessary conditions for that to occur salvation. It
will remain still in our hearts love, feeling that we will continue practicing even
in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Kingdom of God.

TRIPLE THE TESTIMONY ABOUT CHRIST

1JN 5:6 This is he that came by water and blood, even


Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and
blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness,
because the Spirit is truth.
1JN 5:7 For there are three that bear record in heaven,
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these
three are one.
1JN 5:8 And there are three that bear witness in
earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and
these three agree in one.
1JN 5:9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness
of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which
51
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

he hath testified of his Son.


1JN 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the
witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath
made him a liar; because he believeth not the record
that God gave of his Son.
1JN 5:11 And this is the record, that God hath given to
us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
1JN 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that
hath not the Son of God hath not life.

THREE PRAYERS

DANIEL

DAN 6:7 All the presidents of the kingdom, the


governors, and the princes, the counsellors, and the
captains, have consulted together to establish a royal
statute, and to make a firm decree, that whosoever
shall ask a petition of any God or man for thirty days,
save of thee, O king, he shall be cast into the den of
lions.
DAN 6:8 Now, O king, establish the decree, and sign
the writing, that it be not changed, according to the
law of the Medes and Persians, which altereth not.
DAN 6:9 Wherefore king Darius signed the writing and
the decree.
DAN 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the writing
was signed, he went into his house; and his windows
being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he
kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and
prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did
aforetime.

JESUS

MT 26:36 Then cometh Jesus with them unto a place


called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit
ye here, while I go and pray yonder.
MT 26:37 And he took with him Peter and the two
sons of Zebedee, and began to be sorrowful and very
heavy.
MT 26:38 Then saith he unto them, My soul is
exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here,
and watch with me.
MT 26:39 And he went a little farther, and fell on his
52
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be


possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not
as I will, but as thou wilt.
MT 26:40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and
findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could
ye not watch with me one hour?
MT 26:41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into
temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is
weak.
MT 26:42 He went away again the second time, and
prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass
away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
MT 26:43 And he came and found them asleep again:
for their eyes were heavy.
MT 26:44 And he left them, and went away again,
and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
MT 26:45 Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith
unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold,
the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed
into the hands of sinners.
MT 26:46 Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand
that doth betray me.

PAUL

2COR 12:7 And lest I should be exalted above


measure through the abundance of the revelations,
there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the
messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be
exalted above measure.
2COR 12:8 For this thing I besought the Lord thrice,
that it might depart from me.
2COR 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is
sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in
weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in
my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon
me.
2COR 12:10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in
reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in
distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then
am I strong.

THE NUMBER SEVEN

" GEN 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and
sanctified it: because that in it he had rested
from all his work which God created and made. "

IN THE OLD TESTAMENT

CREATION

(GEN 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his


work which he had made; and he rested on the
seventh day from all his work which he had made.
GEN 2:3 And God blessed the seventh day, and
sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all
his work which God created and made.

54
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

According to the whole purpose of God, the seven


were chosen by the Lord as the number of perfection, when everything is ready
and finished as the Divine creation, then seven is blessed and sanctified by
God, that there is no rest of the Lord.
Why everything is under seven, is a mystery that belongs only to the Father
known. We address here two numbers found in the Holy Bible that once
added, will complete the work of God, ie, the number seven.
The first issue we studied was four, because we demonstrated how the Holy
Book lists this number as a waiting period of preparation, trial. For the very
reason for being, their presence proved so intense in the Old Testament.
Then we made an approach through the number three as this number has
followed throughout the course of our Lord Jesus Christ. Exceeding the period
of waiting, preparation, then comes a period of consummation, completion of a
work, when it presents itself to the three, plus the four, is achieved perfection of
God's work, which is seven.

FLOOD

GEN 7:1 And the LORD said unto Noah, Come thou
and all thy house into the ark; for thee have I seen
righteous before me in this generation.
GEN 7:2 Of every clean beast thou shalt take to thee
by sevens, the male and his female: and of beasts
that are not clean by two, the male and his female.
GEN 7:3 Of fowls also of the air by sevens, the male
and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all
the earth.
GEN 7:4 For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain
upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every
living substance that I have made will I destroy from
off the face of the earth.
(GEN 7:10 And it came to pass after seven days, that
the waters of the flood were upon the earth.
GEN 8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on
the seventeenth day of the month, upon the mountains
of Ararat.
GEN 8:10 And he stayed yet other seven days; and
again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;
GEN 8:12 And he stayed yet other seven days; and
sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him
any more.

THE WORK OF JACOB

55
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

GEN 29:18 And Jacob loved Rachel; and said, I will


serve thee seven years for Rachel thy younger
daughter.
GEN 29:27 Fulfil her week, and we will give thee this
also for the service which thou shalt serve with me yet
seven other years.
GEN 29:30 And he went in also unto Rachel, and he
loved also Rachel more than Leah, and served with
him yet seven other years.

THE MEETING of Jacob and Esau

GEN 33:1 And Jacob lifted up his eyes, and looked,


and, behold, Esau came, and with him four hundred
men. And he divided the children unto Leah, and unto
Rachel, and unto the two handmaids.
GEN 33:2 And he put the handmaids and their
children foremost, and Leah and her children after,
and Rachel and Joseph hindermost.
GEN 33:3 And he passed over before them, and
bowed himself to the ground seven times, until he
came near to his brother.
GEN 33:4 And Esau ran to meet him, and embraced
him, and fell on his neck, and kissed him: and they
wept.

THE DREAMS OF PHARAOH


GEN 41:1 And it came to pass at the end of two full
years, that Pharaoh dreamed: and, behold, he stood
by the river.
GEN 41:2 And, behold, there came up out of the river
seven well favored kine and fatfleshed; and they fed
in a meadow.
GEN 41:3 And, behold, seven other kine came up after
them out of the river, ill favored and leanfleshed; and
stood by the other kine upon the brink of the river.
GEN 41:4 And the ill favored and leanfleshed kine did
eat up the seven well favored and fat kine. So
Pharaoh awoke.
GEN 41:5 And he slept and dreamed the second time:
and, behold, seven ears of corn came up upon one
stalk, rank and good.
GEN 41:6 And, behold, seven thin ears and blasted

SEVEN NATIONS

DEUT 7:1 When the LORD thy God shall bring thee
into the land whither thou goest to possess it, and
hath cast out many nations before thee, the Hittites,
and the Girgashites, and the Amorites, and the
Canaanites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and
the Jebusites, seven nations greater and mightier than
thou;
DEUT 7:2 And when the LORD thy God shall deliver
them before thee; thou shalt smite them, and utterly
destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them,
nor show mercy unto them:
DEUT 7:3 Neither shalt thou make marriages with
them; thy daughter thou shalt not give unto his son,
nor his daughter shalt thou take unto thy son.
DEUT 7:4 For they will turn away thy son from
following me, that they may serve other gods: so will
the anger of the LORD be kindled against you, and
destroy thee suddenly.
DEUT 7:5 But thus shall ye deal with them; ye shall
destroy their altars, and break down their images,
and cut down their groves, and burn their graven
63

images with fire.


DEUT 7:6 For thou art an holy people unto the LORD
thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a
special people unto himself, above all people that are
upon the face of the earth.

WAIVER OF THE YEAR

DEUT 15:1 At the end of every seven years thou shalt


make a release.
DEUT 15:2 And this is the manner of the release:
Every creditor that lendeth ought unto his neighbor
shall release it; he shall not exact it of his neighbor, or
of his brother; because it is called the LORD's release.
DEUT 15:3 Of a foreigner thou mayest exact it again:
but that which is thine with thy brother thine hand
shall release;
DEUT 15:4 Save when there shall be no poor among
you; for the LORD shall greatly bless thee in the land
which the LORD thy God giveth thee for an inheritance
to possess it:
DEUT 15:5 Only if thou carefully hearken unto the
voice of the LORD thy God, to observe to do all these
commandments which I command thee this day.
DEUT 15:6 For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he

DANIEL
DAN 3:19 Then was Nebuchadnezzar full of fury, and
the form of his visage was changed against Shadrach,
Meshach, and Abednego: therefore he spake, and
commanded that they should heat the furnace one
seven times more than it was wont to be heated.
DAN 4:16 Let his heart be changed from man's, and
let a beast's heart be given unto him; and let seven
times pass over him.
DAN 4:23 And whereas the king saw a watcher and
an holy one coming down from heaven, and saying,
Hew the tree down, and destroy it; yet leave the
stump of the roots thereof in the earth, even with a
band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the
field; and let it be wet with the dew of heaven, and let
his portion be with the beasts of the field, till seven
times pass over him;
DAN 4:25 That they shall drive thee from men, and
thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field, and
they shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and they
shall wet thee with the dew of heaven, and seven
times shall pass over thee, till thou know that the most
High ruleth in the kingdom of men, and giveth it to
whomsoever he will.
(DAN 4:32 And they shall drive thee from men, and
thy dwelling shall be with the beasts of the field: they
shall make thee to eat grass as oxen, and seven times

Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Jeremiah the prophet, that he would accomplish


seventy years in the desolations of Jerusalem.
DAN 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy
people and upon thy holy city, to finish the
transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to
make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in
everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision
and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.
DAN 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from
the going forth of the commandment to restore and to
build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be
seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the
street shall be built again, and the wall, even in
troublous times.

By reading the Bible, we find that God spoke


through the prophet Daniel, many things about the end time.
Noted above, several citations refer to paragraphs derived from seven
(seventy weeks, seventy, seven weeks). The seventh millennium is also
related to the Lord's purpose for the end time.

Let us read the following verse:

DAN 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy


people and upon thy holy city, to finish the
transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to
make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in
everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision
and prophecy, and to anoint the most

After these seven thousand years since creation, then God Himself will dwell
with men. Already completed six thousand years since the creation of the
world, which added to the thousand year reign of Jesus Christ, will amount to
seven thousand years. Let us examine the following verses:

REV 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired,


Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,
REV 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations
which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog, and
Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number
of whom is as the sand of the sea.
REV 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the
earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about,
and the beloved city: and fire came down from God
out of heaven, and devoured them.
REV 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast
71
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast


and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day
and night for ever and ever.
REV 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him
that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the
heaven fled away; and there was found no place for
them.
REV 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great,
stand before God; and the books were opened: and
another book was opened, which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which
were written in the books, according to their works.
REV 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were
in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which
were in them: and they were judged every man
according to their works.
REV 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake
of fire. This is the second death.
REV 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in
the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

REV 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new


earth: for the first heaven and the first earth
were passed away; and there was no more sea.
REV 21:2 And I John saw the holy city, new
Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven,
prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
REV 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven
saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with
men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall
be his people, and God himself shall be with
them, and be their God.
REV 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from
their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither
sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more
pain: for the former things are passed away.
REV 21:5 And he that sat upon the throne said,
Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me,
Write: for these words are true and faithful.
REV 21:6 And he said unto me, It is done. I am
Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will
give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the
water of life freely.
REV 21:7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things;
and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
REV 21:8 But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the
abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and

72
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their


part in the lake which burneth with fire and
brimstone: which is the second death.

These verses of Revelation, harmonize perfectly with verse 24 of


Chapter 9 of the Book of Daniel.
Making the integration of these two texts, we could create the following
thought:

Seven thousand years are determined upon the


people of God and the holy city to finish transgression, to make an end
of sins (ceasing to death, and mourning, the crying, and pain), to atone
for wickedness, to bring everlasting righteousness, because God
Himself will dwell with men, once everything is completed.

Note that the verse from the Book of Daniel refers to the phrases "bring
in everlasting righteousness, to make an end of sins, make
reconciliation for iniquity, " ie, everything that will happen when God
himself comes to dwell with his people, as described up in the book of
Revelation.

JESUS APPEARS TO SEVEN DISCIPLES

JN 21:1 After these things Jesus shewed himself


again to the disciples at the sea of Tiberias; and on
this wise shewed he himself.
JN 21:2 There were together Simon Peter, and Thomas
called Didymus, and Nathanael of Cana in Galilee,
and the sons of Zebedee, and two other of his
disciples.
JN 21:3 Simon Peter saith unto them, I go a fishing.
They say unto him, We also go with thee. They went
forth, and entered into a ship immediately; and that
night they caught nothing.
JN 21:4 But when the morning was now come, Jesus
stood on the shore: but the disciples knew not that it
was Jesus.
JN 21:5 Then Jesus saith unto them, Children, have
ye any meat? They answered him, No.
JN 21:6 And he said unto them, Cast the net on the
right side of the ship, and ye shall find. They cast
therefore, and now they were not able to draw it for
the multitude of fishes.

Once risen Jesus appears to his disciples, and


performs again the miraculous catch. This time, when Jesus performs this
miracle, are on board seven of his disciples. It must also mentioned in verse 14
of chapter 21 of John's gospel, this was the third time that Jesus was
manifested to the disciples.

were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of
this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and
of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
REV 11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat
before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and
worshipped God,
REV 11:17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God
Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come;
because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and
hast reigned.
REV 11:18 And the nations were angry, and thy
wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they
should be judged, and that thou shouldest give
reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the
saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great;
and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE NUMBERS

THE FOURTH DAY - THE FOURTH MILLENNIUM

THE FOURTH DAY

GEN 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and


the earth.
GEN 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void;
and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the
Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
GEN 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there
was light.
GEN 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and
God divided the light from the darkness.
GEN 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the
darkness he called Night. And the evening and the
morning were the first day.
GEN 1:6 And God said, Let there be a firmament in the
midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from
the waters.
GEN 1:7 And God made the firmament, and divided
the waters which were under the firmament from the
waters which were above the firmament: and it was
so.
GEN 1:8 And God called the firmament Heaven. And
the evening and the morning were the second day.
GEN 1:9 And God said, Let the waters under the
heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let
the dry land appear: and it was so.

80
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

GEN 1:10 And God called the dry land Earth; and the
gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and
God saw that it was good.
GEN 1:11 And God said, Let the earth bring forth
grass, the herb yielding seed, and the fruit tree
yielding fruit after his kind, whose seed is in itself,
upon the earth: and it was so.
GEN 1:12 And the earth brought forth grass, and herb
yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit,
whose seed was in itself, after his kind: and God saw
that it was good.
GEN 1:13 And the evening and the morning were the
third day.
GEN 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the
firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night;
and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and
years:
GEN 1:15 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the
heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so.
GEN 1:16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to
rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made
the stars also.
GEN 1:17 And God set them in the firmament of the heaven
to give light upon the earth,
GEN 1:18 And to rule over the day and over the night, and to
divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was
good.
GEN 1:19 And the evening and the morning were the fourth
day.

As we have presented in this work, the number four in the Good Book,
is a waiting period of preparation within the purpose of God. In
creation, we note that this thought is confirmed when God divides the
building in several days. God has reserved the first four days of
creation, to prepare a work order to be ready to receive then living
beings, namely, that life would dwell on the earth.
On the first day created the Light In the second, he
divided the waters which were under the firmament and the waters
that were above the firmament, calling the expansion heaven. In the
third, he gathered the waters under the heavens in place, and the dry
land appeared, which he called Earth, and the gathered waters he
called Seas. Also on the third day, the earth brought forth grass, herb
yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was
in itself after its kind. Finally, the fourth day, God created the sun,
moon and stars.
Thus in these four days then everything was
prepared for the land he could get the living beings.

81
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Let us now consider the fifth and sixth day of


creation:

GEN 1:20 And God said, Let the waters bring forth
abundantly the moving creature that hath life, and
fowl that may fly above the earth in the open
firmament of heaven.
GEN 1:21 And God created great whales, and every
living creature that moveth, which the waters brought
forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged
fowl after his kind: and God saw that it was good.
GEN 1:22 And God blessed them, saying, Be fruitful,
and multiply, and fill the waters in the seas, and let
fowl multiply in the earth.
GEN 1:23 And the evening and the morning were the
fifth day.
GEN 1:24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the
living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping
thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was
so.
GEN 1:25 And God made the beast of the earth after
his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing
that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God
saw that it was good.
GEN 1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our
image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion
over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air,
and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over
every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.
GEN 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in
the image of God created he him; male and female
created he them.
GEN 1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto
them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the
earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish
of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every
living thing that moveth upon the earth.
GEN 1:29 And God said, Behold, I have given you
every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all
the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a
tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat.
GEN 1:30 And to every beast of the earth, and to
every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth
upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given
every green herb for meat: and it was so.
GEN 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made,

82
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and


the morning were the sixth day.

THE FOURTH MILLENNIUM


Just as we said above, God in the first four days of
creation, prepared the ground so she was ready to receive the living
beings, namely, that life could live here, also since the creation of the
world, it was necessary wait a period of approximately four thousand
years before the light came into the world as the gospel of John teaches
us:

JN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word


was with God, and the Word was God.
JN 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
JN 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him
was not any thing made that was made.
JN 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of
men.
JN 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the
darkness comprehended it not.
JN 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name
was John.
JN 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness
of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
JN 1:8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear
witness of that Light.
JN 1:9 That was the true Light, which lighteth every
man that cometh into the world.
JN 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was
made by him, and the world knew him not.
JN 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received
him not.
JN 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he
power to become the sons of God, even to them that
believe on his name:
JN 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will
of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
JN 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt
among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of
the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

When Jesus Christ came into the world, had already


passed a sentence of four thousand years since creation, ie, two
thousand years from Adam to Abraham, over a period of approximately
two thousand years from Abraham to Jesus, thus adding to a total of
four thousand years.
83
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Another period of four thousand years, also has to


do with the waiting time and the work of our Lord Jesus Christ, but
now related to the creation of the world, but his relationship with
Abraham, the father of faith.

As stated above, from Abraham to Jesus Christ


represents a period of about two thousand years, and Jesus Christ to
our days, a period more than two thousand years. That is, from
Abraham to the return of Jesus Christ, we also have a waiting period of
four thousand years.

And what accounts for this period?

Represents the waiting time of the promise made


by our God.

GEN 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get
thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and
from thy father's house, unto a land that I will show
thee:
GEN 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I
will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou
shalt be a blessing:
GEN 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and
curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all
families of the earth be blessed.
GEN 12:4 So Abram departed, as the LORD had
spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram
was seventy and five years old when he departed out
of Haran.
GEN 12:5 And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his
brother's son, and all their substance that they had
gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in
Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of
Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came.
GEN 12:6 And Abram passed through the land unto
the place of Sichem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the
Canaanite was then in the land.
GEN 12:7 And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and
said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there
builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared
unto him.
GEN 13:14 And the LORD said unto Abram, after that
Lot was separated from him, Lift up now thine eyes,
and look from the place where thou art northward,

84
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

and southward, and eastward, and westward:


GEN 13:15 For all the land which thou seest, to thee
will I give it, and to thy seed for ever.
GEN 13:16 And I will make thy seed as the dust of the
earth: so that if a man can number the dust of the
earth, then shall thy seed also be numbered.
GEN 13:17 Arise, walk through the land in the length
of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.
GEN 15:18 In the same day the LORD made a
covenant with Abram, saying, Unto thy seed have I
given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great
river, the river Euphrates
GAL 3:15 Brethren, I speak after the manner of men;
Though it be but a man's covenant, yet if it be
confirmed, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.
GAL 3:16 Now to Abraham and his seed were the
promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of
many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
GAL 3:17 And this I say, that the covenant, that was
confirmed before of God in Christ, the law, which was
four hundred and thirty years after, cannot disannul,
that it should make the promise of none effect.
GAL 3:18 For if the inheritance be of the law, it is no
more of promise: but God gave it to Abraham by
promise.
GAL 3:19 Wherefore then serveth the law? It was
added because of transgressions, till the seed should
come to whom the promise was made; and it was
ordained by angels in the hand of a mediator.
GAL 3:20 Now a mediator is not a mediator of one, but
God is one.
GAL 3:21 Is the law then against the promises of God?
God forbid: for if there had been a law given which
could have given life, verily righteousness should have
been by the law.
GAL 3:22 But the scripture hath concluded all under
sin, that the promise by faith of Jesus Christ might be
given to them that believe.

By the excerpts presented above, we note that through Abraham God


made the promise that this was achieved by faith in our Lord Jesus
Christ. Thus, the promise until the return of our Lord Jesus, God
established a waiting period of approximately four thousand years.

THIRD DAY - THE THIRD YEAR - THIRD


MILLENNIUM
85
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

THIRD DAY
MT 20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the
twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them,
MT 20:18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son
of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and
unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to
death,
MT 20:19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to
mock, and to scourge, and to crucify him: and the third
day he shall rise again.

For all the work to be complete, it was


necessary for Jesus to suffer and rise again the third day, conquering
death and freeing us from sin. With his resurrection, death has been
defeated. This is the victory we have in Jesus Christ, our resurrection
to eternal life. We need only believe that Jesus Christ came to earth as
the Son of God, to give us eternal life.

THIRD YEAR

LK 3:21 Now when all the people were baptized, it


came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and
praying, the heaven was opened,
LK 3:22 And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily
shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from
heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee
I am well pleased.
LK 3:23 And Jesus himself began to be about thirty
years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of
Joseph, which was the son of Heli,

The Book of John describes three Passovers in which Jesus goes to


Jerusalem, when it is his death and resurrection.
Just as we said earlier, that Jesus Christ rose
again the third day, again after the completion of His baptism in the
third year of his ministry, his death and resurrection occurs.

2 PETER, CHAPTER 3

2PET 3:1 This second epistle, beloved, I now write


unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by
way of remembrance:
2PET 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the words which
were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the
commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and
Saviour:
2PET 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in
the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2PET 3:4 And saying, Where is the promise of his
coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things
continue as they were from the beginning of the
creation.
2PET 3:5 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that
by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the
earth standing out of the water and in the water:
2PET 3:6 Whereby the world that then was, being
overflowed with water, perished:
2PET 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are
now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved
unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of
ungodly men.
2PET 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one
thing, that one day is with the Lord as a
thousand years, and a thousand years as one
day.
2PET 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise,
as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to
us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that
87
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

all should come to repentance.


2PET 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief
in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt
with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that
are therein shall be burned up.
2PET 3:11 Seeing then that all these things shall be
dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in
all holy conversation and godliness,
2PET 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of
the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire
shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with
fervent heat?
2PET 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise,
look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein
dwelleth righteousness.
2PET 3:14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for
such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in
peace, without spot, and blameless.
2PET 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our
Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul
also according to the wisdom given unto him hath
written unto you;
2PET 3:16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them
of these things; in which are some things hard to be
understood, which they that are unlearned and
unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures,
unto their own destruction.
2PET 3:17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these
things before, beware lest ye also, being led away
with the error of the wicked, fall from your own
stedfastness.
2PET 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory
both now and for ever. Amen.

These two passages also reveal the return of our


Lord Jesus Christ in the third millennium since his resurrection, as we
demonstrate below.
However, before looking at these passages, let us
recall a few other texts also taken from the Holy Book, used by
Christians to justify the soon coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

SIGNS ON THE EARTH


First, as is known by everyone and released long time,
88
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

there is a unanimous conviction of the soon return of our Lord Jesus Christ, by
the signs which He taught us through His earthly ministry. The beginning of
sorrows, the great tribulation, the coming of the Son of Man, call to vigilance,
are described in the first three Gospels, which then transcribe:

GOSPEL OF MATTHEW

MT 23:37 O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest


the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto
thee, how often would I have gathered thy children
together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under
her wings, and ye would not!
MT 23:38 Behold, your house is left unto you desolate.
MT 23:39 For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me
henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh
in the name of the Lord.

MT 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the


temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew
him the buildings of the temple.
MT 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all
these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be
left here one stone upon another, that shall not be
thrown down.
MT 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the
disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us,
when shall these things be? and what shall be the
sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
MT 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them,
Take heed that no man deceive you.
MT 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I
am Christ; and shall deceive many.
MT 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of
wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things
must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
MT 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be
famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers
places.
MT 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
MT 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be
afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of
all nations for my name's sake.
MT 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and
89
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.


MT 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and
shall deceive many.
MT 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the
love of many shall wax cold.
MT 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the
same shall be saved.
MT 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be
preached in all the world for a witness unto all
nations; and then shall the end come.
MT 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the
abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the
prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let
him understand:)
MT 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into
the mountains:
MT 24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come
down to take any thing out of his house:
MT 24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return
back to take his clothes.
MT 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child,
and to them that give suck in those days!
MT 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the
winter, neither on the sabbath day:
MT 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as
was not since the beginning of the world to this time,
no, nor ever shall be.
MT 24:22 And except those days should be
shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for
the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
MT 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo,
here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
MT 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and
false prophets, and shall shew great signs and
wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they
shall deceive the very elect.
MT 24:25 Behold, I have told you before.
MT 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you,
Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is
in the secret chambers; believe it not.
MT 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east,
and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the
coming of the Son of man be.
MT 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will
the eagles be gathered together.
MT 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those
days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall

90
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

not give her light, and the stars shall fall from
heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be
shaken:
MT 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son
of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the
earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man
coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great
glory.
MT 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great
sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together
his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven
to the other.
MT 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When
his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye
know that summer is nigh:
MT 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these
things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
MT 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall
not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.
MT 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my
words shall not pass away.
MT 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man,
no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
MT 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also
the coming of the Son of man be.
MT 24:38 For as in the days that were before the
flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and
giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered
into the ark,
MT 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and
took them all away; so shall also the coming of the
Son of man be.
MT 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall
be taken, and the other left.
MT 24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill;
the one shall be taken, and the other left.
MT 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what
hour your Lord doth come.
MT 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the
house had known in what watch the thief would
come, he would have watched, and would not have
suffered his house to be broken up.
MT 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an
hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

GOSPEL OF MARK

91
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

MK 13:1 And as he went out of the temple, one of his


disciples saith unto him, Master, see what manner of
stones and what buildings are here!
MK 13:2 And Jesus answering said unto him, Seest
thou these great buildings? there shall not be left one
stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
MK 13:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives over
against the temple, Peter and James and John and
Andrew asked him privately,
MK 13:4 Tell us, when shall these things be? and
what shall be the sign when all these things shall be
fulfilled?
MK 13:5 And Jesus answering them began to say,
Take heed lest any man deceive you:
MK 13:6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I
am Christ; and shall deceive many.
MK 13:7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours
of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must
needs be; but the end shall not be yet.
MK 13:8 For nation shall rise against nation, and
kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be
earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be
famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of
sorrows.
MK 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall
deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye
shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers
and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
MK 13:10 And the gospel must first be published
among all nations.
MK 13:11 But when they shall lead you, and deliver
you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall
speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever
shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is
not ye that speak, but the Holy Ghost.
MK 13:12 Now the brother shall betray the brother to
death, and the father the son; and children shall rise
up against their parents, and shall cause them to be
put to death.
MK 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my
name's sake: but he that shall endure unto the end,
the same shall be saved.
MK 13:14 But when ye shall see the abomination of
desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing
where it ought not, (let him that readeth understand,)
then let them that be in Judaea flee to the mountains:
MK 13:15 And let him that is on the housetop not go

92
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

down into the house, neither enter therein, to take any


thing out of his house:
MK 13:16 And let him that is in the field not turn back
again for to take up his garment.
MK 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to
them that give suck in those days!
MK 13:18 And pray ye that your flight be not in the
winter.
MK 13:19 For in those days shall be affliction, such as
was not from the beginning of the creation which God
created unto this time, neither shall be.
MK 13:20 And except that the Lord had shortened
those days, no flesh should be saved: but for the
elect's sake, whom he hath chosen, he hath shortened
the days.
MK 13:21 And then if any man shall say to you, Lo,
here is Christ; or, lo, he is there; believe him not:
MK 13:22 For false Christs and false prophets shall
rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if
it were possible, even the elect.
MK 13:23 But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold
you all things.
MK 13:24 But in those days, after that tribulation, the
sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give
her light,
MK 13:25 And the stars of heaven shall fall, and the
powers that are in heaven shall be shaken.
MK 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man
coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
MK 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and
shall gather together his elect from the four winds,
from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost
part of heaven.

MK 13:34 For the Son of Man is as a man taking a far
journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his
servants, and to every man his work, and commanded
the porter to watch.

the master of the house cometh, at even, or at
midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

GOSPEL OF LUKE

LK 21:5 And as some spake of the temple, how it was


adorned with goodly stones and gifts, he said,
LK 21:6 As for these things which ye behold, the days
will come, in the which there shall not be left one stone
upon another, that shall not be thrown down.
LK 21:7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but
when shall these things be? and what sign will there
be when these things shall come to pass?
LK 21:8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not
deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I
am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not
therefore after them.
LK 21:9 But when ye shall hear of wars and
commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first
come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
LK 21:10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise

LK 21:11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers
places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful

which all your adversaries shall not be able to
gainsay nor resist.

enter thereinto.
LK 21:22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all

to them that give suck, in those days! for there shall
be great distress in the land, and wrath upon this
people.
LK 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword,
and shall be led away captive into all nations: and
Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until
the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
LK 21:25 And there shall be signs in the sun, and in
the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth
distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the
waves roaring;
LK 21:26 Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for
looking after those things which are coming on the
earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.
LK 21:27 And then shall they see the Son of man
coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
LK 21:28 And when these things begin to come to

LK 21:36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that
ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these

Now, by reading these excerpts from the three gospels above, is that
the Christian church in its various denominations, hoping for the
return soon of our Lord Jesus Christ.

THIRD MILLENNIUM - SEVENTH MILLENNIUM


Beyond what was presented earlier, leads us to another
element of belief around the Lord Jesus in this third millennium.
It's the third millennium, just complete the work of God, for
His purpose by this third millennium is also the seventh millennium we are
living since the creation of the world, which is the millennium of the reign of
Jesus a thousand years, when there will be rest on the ground.

PSALM 90 AND THE SECOND LETTER OF PETER,


CAP. 3
To facilitate understanding, I would transcribe again a few
verses of the Second Letter of Peter, chapter 3, namely:

2PET 3:3 Knowing this first, that there shall come in


the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
2PET 3:7 But the heavens and the earth, which are
now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved
unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of
ungodly men.
2PET 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one
thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as one day.
2PET 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise,
as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to
us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that
all should come to repentance.
2PET 3:10 But the day of the Lord will come as a
thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass
96
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt


with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that
are therein shall be burned up
2PET 3:12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of
the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire
shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with
fervent heat?
2PET 3:18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of
our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory
both now and for ever. Amen.

Here, when Peter says that a thousand years to God is like a day and one day
as a thousand years, is a prophetic phrase that combined not only with the rest
of this chapter as well as with the rest of the Holy Book tells us that the seventh
millennium is the millennium, or "DIA" the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.
When Peter uses the phrase "... in recent days is ...", as we read in the last
millennia.
Note that Chapter 3 of the Second Letter of Peter is
exactly the coming of the Lord Jesus and its significance.

Observe the following excerpts below:

MT 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man,


no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
MT 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour
your Lord doth come.
MT 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an
hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
MK 13:32 But of that day and that hour knoweth no
man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither
the Son, but the Father.

In these passages, the word day comes bundled with the word time, ie,
here it is not the "Lord's Day" as being the prophetic sense of the
seventh millennium since the creation of the world and the third
millennium of the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ but we must
apply a narrow definition, ie, as being really the time when Jesus will
come, which we do not know but the Father
We understand that the word of God is true, just
and true. Nobody knows the day and hour of Jesus' coming, this is a
mystery that belongs to the Father Like our Lord Jesus prophesied
signs that would precede his return, without specifying the date and
time, this paper aims to demonstrate that our Holy Book has total
harmony in all his writings, when directed to do a reading numbers
and try to understand them on their purpose in the Holy Bible.
Why we still do not know what day and time?
It is impossible to make a chronological analysis of
the Holy Bible in an accurate, since the creation of the world. Differ
97
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

several previous studies, whether in religious or even in science. Yes


we have some elements that are peaceful, that is, the creation of the
world to Abraham, it took up about two thousand years. From
Abraham to Jesus Christ, also something close to two thousand years.
Finally, yes, of Jesus Christ to our present day, it's been two thousand
and ten years.
Even in the latter period, there is correction to be
made about the exact time of birth of our Lord Jesus Christ and the
beginning of the calendar, something that varies around 4-5 years
behind the calendar.
Thus, we know it's been about four thousand years
during the Old Testament and about two thousand and 10 years of
Jesus until today, that is, a period already finished six thousand years
or so.
Thus, by which we present in this work, we believe
that the seventh millennium will be those in which they will
consummate the work of God according to His purpose, without,
however, know exactly when this will happen, ie, days and hours
exactly. Apparently, we are already experiencing the beginning of the
seventh millennium, with Jesus at the door to return once the signs
confirmed that he actually predicted this present moment as his back.

THE SEVENTH DAY - THE SEVENTH YEAR - THE


SEVENTH MILLENNIUM

shalt neither sow thy field, nor prune thy vineyard.

REV 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old
serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him
a thousand years,
REV 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and
shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should
deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years
should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed
a little season.
REV 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the
first resurrection: on such the second death hath no
power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ,
and shall reign with him a thousand years.
2PET 3:8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one
thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand
years, and a thousand years as one day.

REV 20:1 And I saw an angel come down from


heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a
great chain in his hand.
REV 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old
serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him
a thousand years,
REV 20:3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and
shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should
deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years
should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a
little season.
REV 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them,
and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the
souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of
Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not
worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had
received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their
hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a
thousand years.
REV 20:5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until
the thousand years were finished. This is the first
resurrection.
REV 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part
in the first resurrection: on such the second
death hath no power, but they shall be priests of
God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a
thousand years.
REV 20:7 And when the thousand years are expired,
99
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,


REV 20:8 And shall go out to deceive the nations
which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog,
and Magog, to gather them together to battle:
the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
REV 20:9 And they went up on the breadth of the
earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about,
and the beloved city: and fire came down from God
out of heaven, and devoured them.
REV 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast
into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast
and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day
and night for ever and ever.
REV 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him
that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the
heaven fled away; and there was found no place for
them.
REV 20:12 And I saw the dead, small and great,
stand before God; and the books were opened: and
another book was opened, which is the book of life:
and the dead were judged out of those things which
were written in the books, according to their works.
REV 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were
in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which
were in them: and they were judged every man
according to their works.
REV 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake
of fire. This is the second death.
REV 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in
the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

What is the reason to have this done? Well, the


answer seems obvious, as it is in their own Bible verse, or why it He
rested from all His work which God created and made.
We did this question just to show that the rest determined by God, has
to do with the making and consummation of all the work he had done.
After these six millennia since the creation of the world we see today
beyond the creation that God had accomplished in six days, also had
another purpose in his will, which was to prepare a kingdom in six
millennia, whose message was brought by his Son Jesus Christ .
Thus, just as there was a period of six days of creation, and the rest on
the seventh day, there is also the purpose of God, a period of six
thousand years, whose final objective is the establishment of his
kingdom, with a period resting on the seventh millennium. That is
evidenced by reading the above verses, the Book of Revelation.
After these six millennia, so will our Lord Jesus Christ, to reign on
earth for a thousand years. As the word reveals, this will be the

100
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

seventh millennium, regarded as the millennium of rest, once with the


prison in the abyss of the devil and Satan, will rest in the earth, for
Satan can not during this period deceive the nations, as the word
(Ap.20: 3)

THE TIME OF THE CRUCIFIXION OF JESUS


Consider the following verses:

MK 15:24 And when they had crucified him, they


parted his garments, casting lots upon them, what
every man should take.
MK 15:25 And it was the third hour, and they
crucified him.
MK 15:26 And the superscription of his accusation
was written over, THE KING OF THE JEWS.
MK 15:33 And when the sixth hour was come, there
was darkness over the whole land until the ninth
hour.
MK 15:34 And at the ninth hour Jesus cried with a
loud voice, saying, Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?
which is, being interpreted, My God, my God, why
hast thou forsaken me?
MK 15:35 And some of them that stood by, when they
heard it, said, Behold, he calleth Elias.
MK 15:36 And one ran and filled a spunge full of
vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink,
saying, Let alone; let us see whether Elias will come to
take him down.
MK 15:37 And Jesus cried with a loud voice, and gave
up the ghost.
MK 15:38 And the veil of the temple was rent in twain
from the top to the bottom.

The Gospel of Mark is the only one to deal with the crucifixion of
Jesus, which explains the time that Jesus Christ was crucified. As
verse 25 above, the crucifixion occurred at the third hour. Still,
according to verses 34 and 37 above, when the sixth hour there was
darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour, and also in this ninth
hour, Jesus cried out saying, "God, my God, why hast thou forsaken
me?" And, finally, then says the word he expired.

Until the last hours of her life here on Earth, the number three
followed the Lord Jesus, several times during his crucifixion.
First, early on, his crucifixion occurs in the third hour. Then, after an
interval of three hours, or the sixth hour, says the word that there was
101
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. Finally, went over an
interval of three hours, during which there was darkness over all the
earth.

A revelation that God gives us in this end time is related to the period
in which Jesus was crucified. Say the word that He was crucified at the
time expired on the third and ninth hour, or operated a six-hour period
during his crucifixion.
Well. We ask: What is about these six hours of
the crucifixion of Jesus Christ for the purpose of God with His plan for
us?
Now we have said numerous times in this work since the creation of
the world until today, it's been about six thousand years. We also said
that just as God created all things in six days and rested on the
seventh, also on the seventh millennium will be the return of Jesus to
reign a thousand years, representing the time out of the earth.
Now, do you read the following verses:

NUM 14:33 And your children shall wander in the


wilderness forty years, and bear your whoredoms,
until your carcasses be wasted in the wilderness.
NUM 14:34 After the number of the days in which ye
searched the land, even forty days, each day for a
year, shall ye bear your iniquities, even forty years,
and ye shall know my breach of promise.

We have already considered this biblical pass early this study, when
the pilgrimage of the Israelites in the desert. These verses were brought
here to demonstrate that when the disobedience of his people, for each
day that the earth was peek, God ordered a year's pilgrimage, so that
for the forty days it took forty years of wandering in the wilderness,
until could enter the promised land.

Likewise, since Adam committed the original


sin, six thousand years have passed in disobedience to God's word, six
millennia of "pilgrimage" and obey the Lord. So the word of God tells us
is that for each millennium of disobedience of his children, was
represented by a time of great pain and suffering borne by our Lord
Jesus Christ on the cross.
We need to understand this time of the end,
that references in the Holy Bible with regard to period of days, hours,
etc.., Have a prophetic sense of these mysteries whose revelations, for
God's will, were allowed to be brought at this time end.

CHRONOLOGY OF THE BIBLE

After quickly reading the various texts found on


the Internet by addressing the matter, we note there is disagreement
about the dating of biblical times, both with variations more or less in
quantity of years.
However, this work does not have the intention nor
the desire to obtain the exact chronology of the Bible, since that only
God has it, just to confirm the prophecy brought by our Lord Jesus
when he said that no one knows the day nor the hour the great day,
but the Father

Present, however, below a chronological framework


since Adam's creation, which reflects the biblical period, with small
variations of dates in relation to other chronological tables.

John the Apostle)

Death of John the Apostle - 100 AD

As the table shows, we have a period of approximately 4000 years


before the birth of Jesus Christ, divided into two periods of about 2000
104
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

each. The first period runs from Adam to Abraham, and the second
period goes from Abraham to the birth of Jesus Christ. Thus, even
Jesus Christ are in addition to approximately 4000 years. Again the
four appears in history as a waiting period, ie, humans have waited
four thousand years for light to come into the world.
Since the birth of Jesus Christ, it took a little over
2000 years, which added to 4000 years before their birth, resulting in a
total period of 6,000 years.
We are currently in the early seventh millennium
since the creation of the world. As we said in this work, the number
seven for God, represents a period of rest, contemplation. In creation,
God rested on the seventh day. For the people of Israel, God also
established a year of rest unto the land. We believe that for the seventh
millennium will also rest for the land.
And this will occur precisely with the return of
Jesus Christ and his reign a thousand years to complete so the seven
thousand years of God's purpose. When the apocalypse 20, says that
the Devil and Satan will be bound a thousand years, and cast into the
abyss, that no longer deceive the nations until the thousand years were
finished, I mean that in these one thousand years on earth have a rest.
However, even with this revelation confirms the
prophecy of Jesus Christ, because nobody knows the day nor the hour
in which he will return, just because it is God's purpose.
The chronology of the Bible does not allow us to
specify your dates, whose mystery only belongs to the Father, just as
we can also calculate the number of grains of sand of the sea or the
number of stars in the sky. We must understand that certain things,
only the Father knows and not revealed to us know.

Chronological data in the Good Book

Early in my Christian walk, where he performed the reading of the Holy


Bible, especially the Book of Genesis, I was impressed with the age that
was assigned by God to the people who lived then.
However, when searching the Internet corresponding to the Old
Testament, we find that the telling of that period was only possible
because of the construction of a family tree of the characters of the
Bible at that time. Performing the sum of their ages is what led us to
conclude that since the creation of the world until the birth of Jesus
Christ, went into a period of approximately four thousand years. When
he had already written almost every chapter of this work, God gave me
to understand then why be in the Old Testament, such information on
the ages of the characters of that era.
And the reason is simple: the Bible had not made reference to the age
of the characters of that era would not be possible today to draw from
the Holy Book, the six thousand years have passed since the creation

105
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

of the world.
Given the revelation of mysteries reserved for this end time, God has
determined to enter the Holy Book, information necessary for us to
understand the will of the Father
We also understand that the word of God has a specific purpose as the
period in which it is presented. Until the Lord Jesus Christ came to
earth, God gave to His people to understand what was needed at that
moment. And what was the understanding given that opportunity? The
promise to the patriarchs.
With the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, then God has extended the
understanding of His purpose as the word brought by His Son. And
now what was the understanding granted? The consummation of the
promise. For Jesus said:

LK 24:44 And he said unto them, These are the words


which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that
all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the
law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms,
concerning me.

Finally, after more than two thousand years of


the resurrection of Jesus Christ, which the understanding that God
has reserved for this time of the end? The return of our Lord Jesus
Christ. He even said so prophetic:

LK 12:54 And he said also to the people, When ye see


a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There
cometh a shower; and so it is.
LK 12:55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye
say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.
LK 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the
sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not
discern this time?

We learn from this passage, that from the


moment it is granted to humans, prior knowledge of certain
information, he can discern about future events. However, because of
all the existing content in the Holy Bible, plus the confirmation of the
signs revealed by Jesus, then we were allowed to understand the
timing of the return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Chapter 6

DIVINE NUMBER

INTRODUCTION

Besides the presentation of this work about the


numbers that are present in the Holy Bible and its importance and
significance for this end time, we will demonstrate how the numbers
were also used by God at the creation of all things.
Called as the number of gold, among other names,
this number is present in nature, architecture, music, geometry, etc..
The number of gold is no more than a numerical
value whose approximate value is 1.618.
This irrational number is considered by many the
symbol of harmony. The Greek school of Pythagoras studied and
observed many relationships and numerical models that appear in
nature, beauty, aesthetics, and other musical harmony, but probably
most important is the golden ratio, divine ratio or divine proportion.
To divide a line segment AB into two parts, we
would have a multitude of ways to do so. There is one, however, that
seems more pleasing to the eye, as if translated to a harmonious
working of our senses. For this division, the German mathematician
Zeizing formulated in 1855, the following principle:

"For a whole divided into two unequal parts look nice from the
standpoint of form, should present the lowest and highest part of the
same relationship between this and the whole."

107
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

The story of this enigmatic number is lost in


antiquity. In Egypt, for example, the pyramids of Giza were built
according to the golden ratio: the ratio of the height of a face and half
the base side of the Great Pyramid is equal to the number of gold.
Built for many hundreds of years later, around
447 and 433 BC, the Greek Parthenon, temple representative of the
Age of Pericles contains the reason of Gold in the rectangle that
contains the facade, which shows the desire to achieve a beautiful and
harmonious work . Phidias was the sculptor and architect in charge of
construction of this temple. The term adjusted for the number of gold
is the original name of the architect - the Greek letter Φ (Phi caps).
Greeks also considered the rectangle whose sides
had this relationship had a special aesthetic harmony and called it the
golden rectangle golden rectangle or, considering this as an exceptional
virtue harmony.
Likewise, in Renaissance painting stands out for
one of the most famous paintings of Leonardo da Vinci: the Mona Lisa,
which presents the Golden Rectangle in multiple locations: (a) drawing
a rectangle around the face of the resulting rectangle is a Golden
rectangle, (b) dividing this rectangle with a line through the eyes, the
new rectangle is also achieved Gold and (c) the dimensions of the frame
also represents the ratio of Gold.

IN NATURE
The mystery and charm that is associated with this number exceeds
the limited horizon of all that is human! In nature in many situations
we can observe the presence of this number. Here are some examples
that leave us perplexed and amazed:

In the human body

One area that was Leonardo da Vinci studied the proportions of the
human body and here again we have reason to Gold:

In this study it appears that the proportions of the


human body contain the ratio of Gold. In this case we
can see the symmetry in the face of a man drawn by
Leonardo. The artist superimposed on the painting a
square divided by rectangles, some of which with the
approximate ratio of gold.

Yet not long ago a guy went to the Society of


Fibonacci with a curious request: He asked the couples to participate
in an experiment. For that asked husbands to them to measure the
height of the woman's navel and divide by its height. The individual
states that all couples in the ratio was about 0.618.
We know that for the ancient Greeks, a person would
be considered beautiful if it possessed a pattern related to the number
1,618. Thus, we consider 1.83 m as the standard measure.

Let us look, therefore, the following figure:

Figure - Dimensions harmonics (aureus) of the human body.

To divide 1.83 m (total height C) 1.131 m (distance


from the navel to the soles of your feet U), we obtain as the reason, the
number of gold. Also obtain this number by dividing the distance from
forehead to chin (X), the distance from ear to chin (Y). So too will
happen, when we relate the total length of the arm (B) with the
distance from elbow to tip of middle finger (D). It may be noted then
that there is a measure of harmony in the constitution of the human
body.

IN PLANTS
In plants, various animals and in many other

109
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

situations we are confronted with the presence of this enigmatic


number. Their presence can be direct or be camouflaged or associated
with the Fibonacci sequence.
This is the case of sunflowers that belong to the
Compositae family. The seeds form two sets of logarithmic spirals in
different directions.
The number of seeds of each set is different, but they
are two consecutive Fibonacci numbers.
The same happens with pinecones.

In general, the pattern of plant development may be


related to the Fibonacci number.
For example spurge, a small blue or white flower
that is found in calcareous, has two large sepals, three small sepals,
five petals and stamens 8.

Jasmine:
We can perceive the presence of the golden number through the
jasmine flower, is given below. It is represented the pentagram, symbol
of the Pythagorean school. By the theorem of mean and extreme ratio
of segments, the number will reach 1,618.

Figure – The jasmine and the representation of the pentagram in its


constitution.

Other flowers also have a structure similar, like lilies and petunias,
among others. Other beings also have this characteristic. The star-fish,
aquatic animal, is a classic example.

BEEHIVE:
Beehive is the name given to a colony of bees or the shelter built for or
by bees.
Hive bees use to shelter their offspring, creating them and store honey.
Domesticated bees have built their hives in apiaries. A hive usually has
80 thousand bees, most of whom are females (workers). The number of
females and males is given by the number of gold (divine proportion).

FINAL
Reported in this study, a brief summary of the number of gold, to show
his constant presence not only in nature but also in other fields such
as architecture, music, geometry, etc.. We highlight some examples
where the number gold presents itself in our day to day, to clarify their
relevance in our world.

But might ask yourself: What is the relationship of this work that

111
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

addresses the biblical numbers to the study of the number of gold?


It is found that the seginte: Just as God is used in the Sacred Book of
the numbers to determine their purpose, since the creation of the
world until the installation of His Kingdom, so too does the order to be
used in their creative works.
When God created things in heaven and on earth, is how we imagined
at the time of creation, He also determined that such works were
subject to given constraints, ie: it creates human beings, plants,
animals, etc.., and after your voice command, everything is subject
according to what He has appointed.
The number of gold is one such control, ie to make everything
according to your desire, the growth of man, plants, animals, must
occur according to a divine proportion (golden number).
As we said earlier, this divine proportion translates to a harmonious
working of our senses. In summary, the work of God.
We must realize that the discoveries made by man, are nothing more
than a revelation given by God at some designated time according to
your purpose.
It's like refletíssemos: Children during their growth, they find things
they wish or things are revealed to them as the moment that they are
prepared to understand them?

CHAPTER 7

BOOK FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE OF THE


TIME
When I started preparing this study, was not yet in my mind the
knowledge of what was presented here. Over the course of preparation
of this work, we are adding what we understood to be God's will. When
however, had traveled all the verses that we felt needed to make this
work, I started thinking about how the closure would make this work.
It was then that God showed me the verses that we transcribe below:

DAN 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words,


and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many
shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be
increased.
DAN 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not: then
said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these
things?
DAN 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the
words are closed up and sealed till the time of the
end.
DAN 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white,
and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and none
of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall
understand.
REV 10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto
him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me,
Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly
bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
REV 10:10 And I took the little book out of the
angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth
sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my
belly was bitter.
REV 10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must
prophesy again before many peoples, and nations,
and tongues, and kings.
REV 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the
sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is

113
Numbers in the Bible and the end time

at hand.
REV 22:11 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still:
and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he
that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he
that is holy, let him be holy still.
REV 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my
reward is with me, to give every man according as his
work shall be.

(Daniel 12:4) - E tu, Daniel, encerra estas palavras e


sela este livro, até ao fim do tempo; muitos correrão
de uma parte para outra, e o conhecimento se
multiplicará.
(Daniel 12:8) - Eu, pois, ouvi, mas não entendi; por
isso eu disse: Senhor meu, qual será o fim destas
coisas?
(Daniel 12:9) - E ele disse: Vai, Daniel, porque estas
palavras estão fechadas e seladas até ao tempo do
fim.
(Daniel 12:10) - Muitos serão purificados, e
embranquecidos, e provados; mas os ímpios
procederão impiamente, e nenhum dos ímpios
entenderá, mas os sábios entenderão.

(Apocalipse 10:9) - E fui ao anjo, dizendo-lhe: Dá-me o


livrinho. E ele disse-me: Toma-o, e come-o, e ele fará
amargo o teu ventre, mas na tua boca será doce como
mel.
(Apocalipse 10:10) - E tomei o livrinho da mão do anjo,
e comi-o; e na minha boca era doce como mel; e,
havendo-o comido, o meu ventre ficou amargo.
(Apocalipse 10:11) - E ele disse-me: Importa que
profetizes outra vez a muitos povos, e nações, e
línguas e reis.
(Apocalipse 22:10) - E disse-me: Não seles as
palavras da profecia deste livro; porque próximo
está o tempo.
(Apocalipse 22:11) - Quem é injusto, faça injustiça
ainda; e quem está sujo, suje-se ainda; e quem é
justo, faça justiça ainda; e quem é santo, seja
santificado ainda.
(Apocalipse 22:12) - E, eis que cedo venho, e o meu
galardão está comigo, para dar a cada um segundo a
sua obra.

Numbers in the Bible and the end time

During the period in which the prophet Daniel


lived, he wanted to understand things at that moment that you were
not allowed, because they were booked and sealed to be understood in
the end time.
Later, after Jesus Christ has risen from the dead, the Lord said to John
in Revelation, for it does not seal the words of the prophecy of that
book, because the end time was near.
But undoubtedly, we are living the end time. Minimum values of a
decent society are almost destroyed. The family, a body that God
created and blessed, base of support for a balanced relationship
between humans, is heading for its total destruction. Soon, the book
that was sealed once and now is no longer closed. Everything that we
present, we believe that was granted by God, by his permission, that
were brought to light the humanity, for information at the present
time.
And what is the purpose of God for these revelations came to our
attention these days?
Among others, two purposes are of paramount importance, if not
essential to motivate these revelations:
The first to be demonstrated to the people of this time, the perfect
harmony that is in the Holy Book, the integration that exists in biblical
texts, from Genesis to Revelation. This is for humanity to recognize the
perfection that is the word of God, although in recent centuries, have
made a real retaliation for the word of God to the satisfaction of earthly
interests, without their commitment to the spiritual realm, which
belongs to God . Thus, these revelations come with the purpose of
showing that the word of God is living and eternal, because He will
fulfill everything we promised.
The second purpose and most important of all is to, once again
demonstrated the momentum that is in the word of God, seek the
repentance of the people, so they accept and confess the Lord Jesus
Christ as the only Savior of their lives.

2PET 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning his


promise, as some men count slackness; but is
longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should
perish, but that all should come to repentance.

REV 22:12 And, behold, I come quickly; and my


reward is with me, to give every man according as his
work shall be.
REV 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith,
Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord
Jesus.
