Numbers and The Revelation of God - Part 2
Numbers and The Revelation of God - Part 2
by Charles Capps
The prophetic implications of the gematria (numerical value) of names and phrases in Scripture are very revealing. (Read Hebrews chapters 3 and 4.)
Let’s review some facts concerning numbers associated with the name of Jesus. His birth was announced in the sixth month. He was crucified at the sixth hour. There are six letters in His name (in the Greek) which have a numerical value of 888 (the same as “the salvation of God”) revealing that Jesus is the salvation of God.
The number 999 is the gematria for the phrase “my wrath” found in Hebrews 3:11. The gematria for “Jesus” is 888 and “my wrath” is 999. The gematria for “Sodom” is also 999. God destroyed Sodom with fire from heaven. It was His wrath upon that wicked city.
There are two Scriptures which reveal that God will turn the way of the wicked upside down.
“The Lord preserveth the strangers; he relieveth the fatherless and widow: but the way of the wicked he turneth upside down.” (Psalm 146:9)
“Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay...” (Isaiah 29:16)
The number associated with the antichrist is 666 which is indicative of ultimate wickedness through an unholy trinity of sixes.
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” (Revelation 13:16-18)
If you turn the antichrist number (666) upside down, it reveals the gematria of “my wrath” (999). This is prophetic, revealing the end of the antichrist and all that will follow him or take his mark.
The first 6 Roman numerals add up to 666 which seems to be prophetic of 6 one- thousand-year days of human history before the antichrist will be revealed. The first 2 Roman Numerals I (1) and V (5) add up to 6 which is man’s number. Man was created in the image of God on the sixth day. The first 2 numerals seem to represent the first 2 millenniums from creation in which God dealt with man through his conscience. The next 2 Roman Numerals, X (10) and L (50) seem to represent the third and fourth millennium when God dealt with Israel under the law. The number 60 seems to relate to Israel. Isaac was 60 years old when Jacob was born, and Jacob’s name was changed to Israel.
The last 2 Roman numerals seem to represent the fifth and sixth millennium C (100) and D (500) which totals 600. This number seems to be associated with God’s people in one way or another through the Scriptures. It also seems to fit as the Church Age number.
The Greek word for Jesus has six letters and the last two letters have a numerical value of 600. This also seems to be prophetic of the time frame of the Church Age. We know that in the six days of the Genesis account there were six days in which God labored and on the seventh day, He rested. We see in Genesis 6:3 that God said to Noah that man’s days shall be 120 years. This is indicative of 120 Jubilees, which would be 6000 years.
I find it quite interesting that Noah was 600 years old when he entered into the ark. The Scriptures reveal that the tithes belong to the Lord. The word “tithe” means tenth. The number 600 would be the tithe on 6000 years of the Earth lease.
Year Of Jubilee
Leviticus chapter 25 reveals that after Israel came out of Egypt, every 50th year was to be a year of Jubilee. Everything that they had sold or lost was restored to them on the year of Jubilee. In Luke 4, Jesus stood up in the synagogue in His hometown on the Sabbath day and read from the Book of Isaiah.
“The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives...To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord...” (Isaiah 61:1-2)
The acceptable year of the Lord is the year of Jubilee, when everything they had lost or sold was restored. This is indicative of what Jesus will restore to the righteous after the 120th Jubilee. The numbers 50 and 120 are associated with that restoration. God said man’s days shall be 120 years—referring to 120 Jubilee years or 6000 years. This seems to be the length of determined time of the Earth lease.
Pentecost Means 50
We know that when the day of Pentecost was “fully come,” the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they all spoke with other tongues (Acts 2:4). Pentecost means 50, and there were 120 in the upper room. Notice how the numbers 50 and 120 are associated with the time when the Holy Spirit came. Paul referred to the Holy Spirit as the “earnest” of our inheritance. Peter said we have an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled reserved for us in heaven (I Peter 1:4). It was on the day of Pentecost that we received the earnest (down payment) of that inheritance.
It happened 50 days after the resurrection, and there were 120 in the upper room. These numbers are associated with this event in a way which would seem to give prophetic insight into when the redemption of the purchased possession (Rapture) will take place after 120 Jubilees of determined time.
House Of The Lord
Solomon built the house of the Lord, and the numbers associated with it seem to reveal when our place in the Father’s house will be finished.
In John 14:2-3, Jesus said, “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”—where? (in the Father’s house), “And if I go and prepare a place for you”—where? (in the Father’s house), “I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am”—where? (in the Father’s house), “there ye may be also.” Why are we going to the Father’s house? To receive our inheritance and to learn how to rule and reign with Him.
In 2 Chronicles 3, we find that Solomon built the house of the Lord, and it seems to be a Scriptural pictorial, revealing when our place in the Father’s house will be finished. When you add the measurements of the house of the Lord together, they are 120 cubits which seem to represent 120 Jubilees. The height of the porch, which was the approach to the house, was also 120 cubits high. If you multiply these cubits together (60 x 20 = 1200; 20 x 20 = 400; 20 x 20 = 400), they total 2000 square cubits. This number is prophetic of the Church Age of 2000 years. Inside that 120 cubits of the house of the Lord was the most holy house which was 20 cubits by 20 cubits. Add these together for a total of 40 cubits which represent 40 Jubilee years (2000 years) of the Church Age.
The house of the Lord was built on the site called Ornan’s threshing floor which David bought for 600 shekels of gold. (1 Chronicles 21:25)
Notice again this number and how it is used. They overlaid the most holy house with 600 talents of gold. Here is the number 600 again associated with God’s people and the house of the Lord. The most holy house was the Holiest of Holies and where the Ark of the Covenant was kept. The ark contained the Word of God written in stone.
The most holy house also seems to represent the Church Age. The 40 cubits represent 40 Jubilees, and the most holy house is inside the 120 cubits which was the overall dimensions of the house which reveals that the Church Age of 2000 years is included in the 120 Jubilees or 6000 years of the Earth lease. The 40 Jubilees of the Church Age, i.e. 50 x 40 = 2000. If you multiply the dimensions of the 120 cubits the way that the Scriptures lay it out, you come up with 2000 square cubits, so there seems to be a double confirmation that the Church Age is 2000 years of determined time.
Other Interesting Numbers
The hill, Golgotha, where Jesus was crucified is called the place of the skull. The gematria of “cross” is 777. The cross where Jesus died was on Golgotha. The hill Golgotha is 777 meters high. A coincidence? Not likely. It seems to be God’s way of confirming revelation of the written Word with His numbers.
Now let’s look again at the implication of these numbers. The antichrist number revealed in Revelation 13:18 is 666. The gematria for “cross” is 777. The gematria for “Jesus” is 888. The “salvation of God” is also 888. The gematria for “my wrath” is 999. These numbers tell the same story that the written Word reveals. The antichrist spirit (666) was in the world when Jesus was on earth (I John 4:3). Jesus gave His life on the cross (777) at Golgotha which is 777 meters high. Jesus was the salvation of God (888). The gematria for His wrath (999) shows up when you turn the antichrist number (666) upside down. (Read Psalm 146:8-10) His wrath will bring an end to the antichrist after the seven years of tribulation are over.
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. (Luke 17:28-30)
"And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone." (Revelation 19:20)
It is obvious that these numbers in Scripture are truly a confirmation of the written Word of God.
Jesus is coming soon! Are you prepared to meet Him? He is your salvation—trust Him today!
