Review of the previous post

In the previous post I answered the question  What Is The Dividing (pĕlag/H6387) Of Times In The Holy Scriptures?  Based on my current understanding of the scriptures, I believe that the fourth beast will reign until God overturns its rule by overtaking the kingdom with the Kingdom of Christ.This will be timed by the appearance of the eleventh horn.

As I wrote last week’s post, I wondered how God counts times and eras – then the answer came clearly. I was reminded about the prophecy that Archangel Gabriel gave to Prophet Daniel about the TIMING of the Messiah’s birth. The Archangel said that Messiah’s arrival would be timed in 70 year Countdowns.

God counts time in 7s and we need to understand the prophetic significance of the Law of 7s in order to

  • correctly interpret the timing of events prophesied in the scriptures
  • understand the season of time in earth history and current affairs
  • understand our plan and purpose in the earth

God taught the Law of 7s  to the human race

Scriptures re veal that God set out the Law of 7s  to symbolize creation, full completion of an event and the onset of a new era.  Our Father God set the pattern for counting time in 7s and we see that early members of the human race understood and applied the  Principle or Law of 7s.

I see too, from the examples in scripture, that God revealed the Law of 7s to the entire human race and not just to the Jews who were selected as a nation of worshipers from the human rebels of earth.

The Law of 7s was therefore practiced by the Creator and therefore by our early ancestors:

  • 7 days of creation freed the earth from nothingness.
  • God rested on the 7th day, showing by example that the human body and spirit need to recuperate.
  • God commanded Noah to take the animals into the Ark by 7s before the flood.
  • God sent the flood 7 days after Noah and his family were safe in the Ark.
  • The ark rested in the 7th month, on the 17th day of the month, upon the mountains of Ararat –  Genesis 8: 4.
  • Noah sent forth a dove to see if the water had abated from the earth, but it returned to the Ark. He waited for  7 days before sending it out again.
  • Noah waited another 7 days before sending out the dove, but it did not return. Seven + seven = 14. It took a double seven of time before the earth lost the waters and was recreated as in the beginning.
  • The earth dried on the 7 and 20th day of the second month.

Do you know that God sent the Flood because the people were too busy to include Him in their lives? The Father just told me that they never rested  much less  worshipped. They lived carefree lives of fun, parties, pleasure and drunkenness. Jesus told us that they were consumed with eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage.

Jesus reveals too, that the earliest members of the human race  believed in and practiced male – female marriage and walked on two legs rather than on all fours – Luke 17: 27.

  • Lamech lived 777 years while everyone in his time lived to over 800 +.
  • Jacob, poor soul, served 7 years for Rachel.
  • Jacob bowed  7 times to the ground when he met his brother Esau after years of bitter separation.
  • King Pharaoh’s dream about 7 years of famine featured animals and ears of corn in  groups of  7s.

I asked the Father (an aside) why He didn’t reveal the imminent famine to Jacob. The response that Jacob did not have the resources to prepare and would have panicked.

God applied the  ceremonial laws of 7s in the Jewish Tabernacle:

  • 7 lamps in the Tabernacle.
  • the High Priest wore his garments for 7 days of ministry.
  • 7 days of consecration for the priests and the items pertaining to the Altar.
  • the priest dipped his finger in the sacrificial blood and sprinkled it 7 times before the vail of the sanctuary.

Laws of 7s related to health

  • a woman who delivered a male child was to remain unclean for 7 days.
  • 7 days of isolation for skin infections.

Laws of 7s applies to major feasts of the earth, as revealed to the Jews

  • In the fourteenth day (7+ 7) of the first month at even is the LORD’S passover – a double rest – Leviticus 23: 5.
  • The Feast of Unleavened bread began on on the fifteenth day of the first month – Leviticus 23: 6.
  • 7 days for the Feast of Unleavened bread, a rest and fast from leaven and lengthy work of bread making & giving of offerings to the Lord – Exodus 12: 15, 19, Leviticus 23: .
  • Count 7 sabbaths from the day after the Passover, then celebrate the Feast of Pentecost on the 50th day with firstfruit offerings to be waved to the Lord – Leviticus 23: 15.  Now we celebrate the Death & Resurrection of the Lord.
  • A memorial of blowing of trumpets is to be celebrated on the first day of the 7th Jewish month. It was a sabbath, , and a holy convocation unto the Lord – Leviticus 23: 34 – 40.
  • The tenth day of this 7th month there shall be a day of atonement: it shall be an holy convocation unto you. This is the time for the church to intercede for the nations
  • The fifteenth day of this 7th month shall be the Feast of tabernacles for 7 days unto the LORD – Leviticus 23: 34.
  • There was a 7 day celebration with waving of branches and dwelling in booths.  The booths symbolized the Blood washed Body/Tabernacle/House/Temple of Christ gathering in His House to worship and praise Him.

Law of 7s applies to Civil Law

  • Celebrate a Sabbath of Rest every 7th year – Leviticus 25: 4.
  • There was a Release of debts at the end of every 7 seven years – Deuteronomy 15.
  • The Jews were commanded to number 7 sabbaths of Years then to celebrate the Jubilee every 50th year – Leviticus 25: 8.
  • The Year of Jubilee was ushered with the trumpet of the Jubilee on the tenth day/day of atonement of the 7th month. This Divine parallel of the Day of Atonement with the ushering of the Year of Jubilee symbolized our freedom in Christ, a shadow of THINGS TO COME.
  • 70 years for the land to rest until the return from the captivity – divine punishment for rebellion and failure to enter the natural and spiritual rest of God.

The Law of 7s applied to the entrance of  Messiah

Other application of the Law of 7s

  • enemies would flee 7 ways if they attacked the obedient – Deuteronomy 28: 7
  • To conquer Jericho, God instructed that the army was to march around the city once a day for six days and 7 times on the 7th day. Seven priests carrying trumpets were to go before the ark and were to blow the trumpets on the 7th day. The army was commanded to shout when the priests made a long blast with the ram’s horn in order to topple the walls – Joshua 6: 4 (man/new season).
  • Samson had 7 miraculous locks of hair which were never cut – until Delilah.
  • Elijah told Naaman to wash 7 times in the Jordan in order to be healed of leprosy – 2 Kings 5: 10.
  • Jesus fed 4000 plus people with 7 loaves and got 7 baskets of bread at the end of the meal – Mark 8: 6 – 8.
  • The Book of Revelation is full of 7s.

Next time I will attempt  to show how God divides time into eras using the Law of 7s. However, I wrote previously about the Countdown to the Messiah, which is a classical example of how the Father measures time.We will not be lost and will actually become prophetic people when we understand and apply this Law of 7s. Halelujah.

Blessings, peace and angelic protection.  Here is my preliminary work:
