The Perfect Numbers

By Randy Nettles

This article is a continuation and expansion of a previous article I wrote titled, “Multiples of Seven.” [1] If you are not familiar with the Feasts of the Lord and some of the prophecies of Daniel, you might want to read this article for a better understanding of this article’s theme. Some of the information regarding the perfect numbers is taken from E.W. Bullinger’s book titled, Number in Scripture.

The number 7 is one of the four so-called perfect numbers of the Bible. The numbers 3, 10, and 12 are the three other perfect numbers. The number 3 is the number for divine perfection, 7 is the number for spiritual perfection, 10 is the number for ordinal perfection, and 12 is the number for governmental perfection.

Although the number 5 is not considered one of the perfect numbers, it is significant; as it signifies grace. Briefly, without going into too much detail, here are a few illustrations of these “perfect” numbers.

The number 3 is associated with the Godhead, for there are “three persons in God.” The first occurrence of the number 3 is in Genesis 1 and describes the third day of creation.

“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” (Genesis 1:9).

On the third day the earth was caused to rise up out of the water, symbolic of the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Three is the number of resurrection, for it was on the third day that Jesus rose again from the dead. It was at the third hour that He was crucified; and it was for 3 hours (from the 6th to the 9th) that darkness enveloped the land.

The number 10 represents the completeness of entire cycle is complete. Noah completed the antediluvian age in the tenth generation. The Ten Commandments contain all that is necessary for the law to be complete. The Lord’s Prayer is completed in 10 clauses. The 10 plagues were representative of the complete circle of God’s judgments on Egypt.

The Antichrist’s world power is comprised of 10 kings/kingdoms, symbolized by the 10 toes on the feet of the image of Neuchadnezzar’s dream; and by the 10 horns of the fourth beast of Daniel’s vision.

TThe number 12 is the perfect number signifying perfection of government. It is found as a multiple in all that has to do with rule. The sun which “rules” the day, and the moon and stars which “govern” the night, do so by their passage through the 12 signs of the Zodiac which completes the great circle of the heavens of 360 (12 x 30) degrees or divisions, and thus govern the year.

There were 12 patriarchs from Seth to Noah and his family, and 12 from Shem to Jacob. The Temple of Solomon has the number 12 as the predominating factor. In Revelation, concerning the New Jerusalem, here is part of the description: o:p>

“And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written theron, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel. And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb” (Revelation 21:12,14).

In the Hebrew, the word seven is translated as “sheva.” It is from the root, savah which means                 to                 be full or satisfied, have enough of. For on the seventh day God rested from the work of Creation. It was full and complete, and good and perfect. Nothing could be added to it or taken from it without marring it. Hence the word “shavath” meaning to cease, desist, rest; and “shabbath” or “sabbath’—day of rest.

The Sabbath is universal and immemorial in its observance among all nations and in all times. There are 7 colors of the spectrum and in the rainbow; and in music, there are 7 notes of the scale. In Revelation, John talks of the 7 Spirits of God. There are 7 Feasts of the Lord. The last three Feasts are in the seventh month of Tishri in the Hebrew calendar.

Some Bible scholars believe there will be 6000 years of mankind before the Millennium Kingdom of Jesus comes, whereas He will rule and reign for 1000 years. Thus mankind will have been on the earth for a total of 7000 years, before God creates a new heaven and earth.

There are some multiples of 7 that ought to be mentioned; namely 42 (6 x 7), 70 (7 x 10), 77 (7 x 11), 50 (5 x 10), 490 (7 x 7 x 10), 7000 (7 x 10 x 10 x 10). The product number exhibits the significance of each in an intensified form. For example, 42 is the sum of 6 x 7. Six is Man’s number, and signifies rebellion; while 7 is God’s number. So 42 is the number associated with mankind’s rebellion against God.

70 (7 x 10) signifies perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and meaning.                 Both spirit and order are greatly emphasized; 70 descendants of Jacob built up the nation of Israel; 70 elders was the total for Israel’s great Tribunal, afterwards called the Sanhedrim; 70 disciples were sent out by Jesus to preach the gospel; 70 is especially the number associated                 with Jerusalem                 as the city kept its Sabbaths 70 years, while Judah was in Babylon.

Seventy “weeks” or ‘sevens’ (490 years) were determined upon the Jews and upon Jerusalem to complete its transgression, and bring in everlasting righteousness; according to Daniel 9:24-27. Daniel’s 70th week will finish the 70 “weeks” prophecy. It will be the last 7 years of the 490 (7 x 7 x10) years mentioned before Jesus returns at His Second Coming to the earth.

Let’ examine this prophecy a little closer, especially verse 27:

“And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week (7 years): and in the midst of                 the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined                 shall be poured upon the desolate.”

This verse is referring to the last 7 years of mankind before the millennium kingdom begins. These 7 years will commence when the Antichrist confirms a covenant (peace treaty) with                 Israel                 This starts the time known as the Tribulation or otherwise known as Jacob’s trouble, or Daniel’s 70th week. In the middle of the 7 years (1260 days later), the Antichrist will stop the sacrifices in the newly built temple (the third one) of Israel ; and will have a statue or image of himself erected for all the people of earth to worship him as God.

This event is known as the Abomination of Desolation. From the middle of the Tribulation to the end of the Great Tribulation is also 1260 days in duration. The horrors of Daniel’s 70th week are described in Revelation 6-19.

The Tribulation will last for seven years. If the Rapture and the start of the Tribulation begin in 2016, then the end of the Great Tribulation will occur in 2023. This seems highly unlikely to me, as there doesn’t appear to be enough time for all of these events to occur.

On June 7, 2017, Israel will celebrate her 50 year (5 x 10) anniversary celebrating the re-taking of the Old City of Jerusalem during the famous 6 day war. On June 7, 1967, IDF paratroopers advanced through the Old City toward the Temple Mount and the Western Wall, bringing Jerusalem’s holiest site under Jewish control for the first time in some 2000 years.

Here is a more realistic (although speculative) dateline for Daniel’s 70th week. The years 2018 – 2025 are very interesting in regard to Israel , Jerusalem , and multiples of seven. On May 14, 2018, Israel will celebrate her 70th (7 X 10) anniversary as a re-formed nation. Israel was resurrected from the ash heaps of history and was recognized as a nation on May 14, 1948. It’s ironic (or not) that the 70th week of Daniel could begin on Israel ’s 70th anniversary year. If the Tribulation starts in the fall of 2018, then the Great Tribulation would end 7 years later in the fall of 2025

Jesus was once asked by his disciples when would be the end of the age. He replied:

“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near: so likewise you, when you shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all these things be fulfilled. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away” (Matthew 24:32-35).

When Jesus told his disciples “this generation shall not pass away,” he was saying that all the end times signs would be fulfilled within the lifetime of the people being born when the end time signs began. The beginning sign was when Israel became a nation again on May 14, 1948.

According to Psalm 90:10, a generation is 70 to 80 years in duration. Modern Israel will be 77                 (7 x 11) years old in 2025. Eleven is the number for disorder and disintegration, which aptly describes the chaos of the end times; yet multiplying it by 7 means God will have the final                 word and His will shall be accomplished.

Whatever the timing of Daniel’s 70th week and the Second Coming of Jesus, we know the end is drawing near. You can compare God’s Word to the daily headlines and realize the “birth pangs” are getting more frequent and severe. As believers in Jesus Christ, we await the Rapture of the Church; not the pre-tribulation wars or the Tribulation. However, as we see these signs getting close, it means the Rapture is even closer. For Paul said:

“Andtowait for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from thewrathtocome” (1 Thessalonians 1:10).

  1. Since I’m ‘into numbers,’ I’ll put my latest letter on THIS site…..& NOTE ALL 4 FAST DAYS to JOY!!!.

    RAPTURE is likely TUESDAY, JUNE 21 (CANCER 1….grip of crab & praesepe….11th sign = judg).

    TRIB total is 2595 days (2520 + 75 post-Return days): 1260+1260+75……………………..2595
    TRIB total is 2595 days via the spans below as well: 78+205+9+2300+3……………………2595

    …….Signing + 78 days = ELUL 1 (Ezek 38 Victory)+7 Jewish mths bury (205 days) = NISAN 1 (Ezek 45:18,
    Temple Cleansed) + 9 more days is start of desecration on NIS 10 when the LAMB is brought into
    Temple.

    ……..Apr 6, 2017 (NISAN 10) starts 3rd Temple Worship…+2300 days (+3 mid trib) = trib end at AV 9, 2023
    (July 27, 2023).

    NISAN 16 (virtually NISAN 17), SUNDAY, Apr 5, 2015 +365 days (1-yr warning, 365 days) is Apr 4, 2016.

    Apr 4, 2016 plus another 75 days is SATURDAY, JUNE 18,, 2016 Sivan 13, probable SIGNING (covert).

    THREE DAYS LATER (for the 1260’s to harmonize) is RAPTURE, TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2016….the 3rd Day…Groom-Arrival/Wedding Day.

    SATURDAY, June 18, 2016 plus 1260 days is SATURDAY, Nov 30, 2019 (SAGIT 8…..Abom Desol/a.c. killed).

    THREE DAYS LATER is TUESDAY, DEC 3, 2019, a.c. satanically RISES (SAGIT 11….’Conqueror’/judg).

    SIGNING JUNE 18, 2016 plus 2520 days (1260+1260) = RETURN at MAY 13, 2023 (SIVAN 22).

    MINUS the tilt of 20-21 days is APR 20, 2023, NISAN 29; and plus 30 DAYS MOURNING is the ISAIAH 63 TEMPLE ENTRANCE on IYYAR 29…JERUSALEM DAY, May 20, 2023. Jerusalem Day was JUNE 7, 1967.

    45 more days judg of nations = TAMMUZ 17j (July 7, 2023).

    The 4 FAST DAYS to be TURNED TO JOY…ZECH 8:19:

    …….TAMMUZ 17, 2023……….trib end w/ tilt loss considered
    …….AV 9, 2023………………….trib end w/out tilt loss considered
    …….TISHREI 10 (Yom Kip)…..veil to Holy of Holies TORE when Jesus was on Cross
    …….TEVET 10………………….10th day gestation, fertilz’d egg (of Jesus) implanted into uterine wall

    There are 54-55 days on EACH SIDE of the TRIB….’not counted’ on each side:

    ……..NISAN 17, 2016 (FIRSTFRUITS) +55 = SIGNING, June 18, 2016 (+3 uncounted days = June 21,
    Rapture).
    ……..RETURN minus the tilt loss (21-day loss), then plus 75 days = a total of 54-55 days.

    Since the two 54’s (55’s) are NOT COUNTED, then the SIGNING/RAPTURE is on FIRSTFRUITS after all!

    Both 280-day gestations (Church/Rapture) span TEVET 1 to SUCCOTH & the LEGAL span of the trib is STILL TEVET 1, 2014 to TEVET 1, 2021……w/ no confusion that I can see. 2021 is 5782 (Pyram/sun).

    TEVET 1, 2014 is end of full 40,46,65 years……1973 (Ablrtions), 46 (from 1967), 65 (from 1948).

    “FAST DAYS to JOY” (Zech 8:19) means BLESSED DAY; and DAN 12:12 says “Blessed (Happy) is he who waits to the END of the 1335 days (mid trib +1335).

    RETURN at MAY 13, 2023 is 75 yrs STATEHOOD for ISRAEL (likely May 13 +2 to straighten = May 15).

    RETURN is TAURUS 22……BULL (Deut 33:17), 22nd day (double 11).

    May 20, 2023 (Isa 63 Temple Entrance/Jesus + Remnant) is GEMINI 20…..10,10,10, if applic.

    6 mths past APR 19-20, 2023 (earth straight) is OCT 15, 2023, the first SUCCOTH of the Millennium/Zech 14 (since Nisan 1 will be Apr 1 and Tishrei 1 will be Oct 1………………..a 360-day yr).

    All is on schedule & all has been considered w/ nothing missing: 1260,1260, 3-day overlap,1290, 1335, 7 Jewish mths burying, 2300 days (+3 uncounted), the post-Return 75 days (55 w/ tilt loss), etc…..and SATUIRDAYS & TUESDAYS are ACROSS the BOARD.

    ‘Bet ya thought I was DONE!!……not a chance!!!!!

    ..

  3. ……..forgot to mention the 7 yrs FUEL USE by Israel of Russian weaponry (Ezek 39:9)….spanning ELUL 1, 2016…Sept 4, 2016 (Ezek 38 Victory?) to trib end at JULY 27, 2023 (AV 9)…………………2520 days (7 perfect yrs…..7 x 360).

  4. Give it the entire TUESDAY……on into Wednesday….still accurate. Reasons:

    The MAJOR portion of the Temple was burned on AV 10, not AV 9.

    The 3rd Temple Desecration (2300 days/Dan 8:13-14) will likely begin on PASSOVER (Nisan 14) because it’s the shed BLOOD that desecrates the Temple. Passover 2017 +2300 days = AV 10, 2023 (July 28).

    RETURN is SUNDAY, MAY 14, 2023, not May 13…………..so now SUNDAYS are across the board.

    All else is the same as previous letter. Do the math.

    Janet Herscu

    June 21, 2016 at 4:07 am

  5. POSSIBLE SCENARIO…..

    ….with another delay on the horizon…..perhaps another 2+ wks (to July 11 via my ongoing study). All we can do is go forward via spec…..w/ no time to lament past failed dates. We know that God is merciful and is saving souls during this seeming delay to trib start. We would even wish for further delay if it saves more. So we keep watching (via math spans) and note what seems obvious at this point.

    The 1-yr warnings were not counted; thus Nisan 17, 2015 (Apr 6…FIRSTFRUITS) to April 5, 2016…..365 days/one solar year won’t be counted; and another 98 days is the probable RAPTURE 98 = 75 days….to be canceled by the post-Return 75…thus not counted…..with another 23 days (future tilt loss) to arrive at July 11, 2016, the possible RAPTURE. 75+23=98. So there are 98 uncounted days from Apr 5, 2016 to July 11, 2016.

    So if all three are not counted (1-yr warning, the 75 and the 23), then the RAPTURE on July 11 will be ‘AS HAVING OCCURRED’ on NISAN 17, 2015/FIRSTFRUITS. IF, by chance, the RAPTURE is 3 days earlier (JULY 8), then that is exactly 75 days past FIRSTFRUITS 2016 (Sunday, Apr 24…NISAN 16-17)….spec.

    JULY 11, 2016 + 1260 days is mid trib at HANUKKAH, KISLEV 25, 2019 (Dec 23)…..Feast of Temple Dedication……a.c. breaks the covenant, stops dy sacrifices and enters Temple (image)…..& is killed.

    RETURN (1260 days past Hanukkah 2019) is JUNE 6, 2023, GEMINI 15 (Remnant CALL Messiah back to earth….’hand in hand’ & 10th sign/twins’), SIVAN 17. THIRTY days mourning later is the FAST of TAMMUZ 17, the Isaiah 63 Temple Entrance Day (Zech 8:19).

    The RETURN at June 6, 2023 minus the 23-day tilt loss is MAY 14 (and 75 yrs Statehood)….then +75 days (30 mourning, 75 judg Nations) is FAST of AV 10 (July 28)…..also Zech 8:19.

    AV 10, 2023 (trib end w/ the tilt minus considered) is also exactly 2300 days past PASSOVER 2017 (Apr 10, LAMB slain/desecration….Dan 8:13-14).

    SEVEN Jewish mths burying bodies/bldg 3rd Temple (205 days) after the Ezek 38 Divine Victory likely span ELUL 1, 2016 to NISAN 1, 2017….EZEK 45:18 Temple Cleansed) and + another 13 days to the slaying of the LAMB at PASSOVER 2017 (then + the 2300 days = trib end, AV 10, 2023). The desecration begins w/ the lamb’s blood shed.

    RETURN is GEMINI 15 (10th sign/’twins hand in hand/Jesus & Remnant’) and 30 days mourning later is CANCER 15…God’s protective grip & 11th sign/judg of nations begins…. the Isaiah 63 Temple Entrance/Remnant w/ Jesus…..then 45 days later is VIRGO 1, trib end and the 1st day of the Mazzarot cycle.

    There are approximately 54 days (world chaos & N. Invasion of Israel) between the July 11 RAPTURE and ELUL 1, 2016, Sept 4), the possible Ezek 38 Divine Victory (Gog Magog).

    There are still 2595 for BOTH full spans….& divided perfectly:

    ……1260+1260+30+45 = 2595
    …….54+205+23+2300 = 2595

    The only 280-day span (spiritual gestation of Remnant) that is clear is ROSH 2022 +280 days is TAMMUZ 17, 2023 (the Isa 63 Temple Entrance/i.e. Remnant BORN into the Millennial Kingdom).

    The Church’s 280-day ‘spiritual gestation’ span is TEVET 1, 2014 to Succoth, 2015….same span as that of Jesus…..Tevet 1 to Succoth……and +6 mths is NISAN 17, 2016…..etc…..w/ ‘nothing counted’ after that since the ‘count stays’ at NISAN 17, 2016, FIRSTFRUITS, our EXIT…………….spec. The 7-yr trib is not counted, since they are Satan’s yrs…….NOT a part of God’s promised 6,000 yrs (Gen 6:3). The count ‘takes up again’ when the tilt loss is complete at MAY 14, 2023 when the EARTH is STRAIGHT.

    Again, all seems accurate and in the above scenario the two remaining FAST DAYS are “turned to joy’……TAMMUZ 17 (Isa 63 Temple Entrance in 2023) and AV 10 (trib end 2023). The other 2 FAST DAYS (Zech 8:19) were already “turned to joy”…….the Holy of Holies VEIL tore (room only used at YOM KIP) and TEVET 10 (fertilized egg…Jesus….implanted into uterine wall of Mary….10th day of conception)….spec.

    There are more details that could easily be clarified, but time and effort to again outline all the spans is perhaps a waste of time. Desperation (NOT scofferism!….God forbid!) has already set in and I am now ‘GROPING’ for a Rapture date……within reason, of course…….that of JULY 11, 2016……could be!

  6. error: In the paragraph beginning “The Return at June 6, 2023……., the middle of the second line should read (30 mourning, 45 judg Nations)…..NOT 75 judg Nations.”
