Why Covid-19: Me? Haven’t Got The Slightest! Not My Two Cents Worth. But! …

Man was created on the 6th day and is represented in his nature by the number 6. There is only one (1) thing that stands between man (6) and completeness (7), and that is the (1) one God Himself. In the same way the complete (7) Word of God had to set aside His glory (1) in order to take upon the flesh of man (6). Either way, man always falls short.

From the beginning, the number 7 has represented God’s completed acts. The Number Four – Creation and the World All of the numbers used in scripture have some variety in their meaning. However, every number has a common theme that runs through each one. The number ‘four’ is no exception. This number is overwhelmingly seen in the material creation and the expression of God’s purpose in the world or on the earth. We first see this in the 4th word in the beginning, the aleph-tav. The fourth word in the book of B’reshith is not translated into the English. In the Hebrew it is simply the first and last letters of the Hebrew aleph-bet. It appears hundreds of times in the Tenakh as a grammatical form called the sign of the direct object. But when it is used as a distinct part of Hebrew grammar it is seen followed by a maqqef, or what would be called a hyphen in the English. It is only seen a hand full of times as standing alone. At any rate, it still points to the creation as being the direct object of the Creator, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End, the Alpha and the Omega. The fourth word speaks of the creation and the Creator who accomplished this by His Word. All that was needed to restore the creation in the next 20 verses was created in the first verse. This is why there is no mention of creating from verse one through verse twenty-one. The Number Eight – Newness and Cycles The number eight presents a picture of newness and a fresh beginning. Some have concluded that this number represents the start of that which has not previously existed, or a celebration of that which is obsolete and dissolved, but this is not the case at all. That position fits very well into Hellenistic, western thinking, but is antithetical to Hebrew thinking or biblical thought patterns.
