Reasons to Believe in Jesus Christ. Number 7 in Creation and in the Bible.

Updated: Jun 5

For those who still question the reliability of the Bible and the identity of Jesus Christ, consider this perspective that explores some fundamental reasons, including the significance of the number 7, which is commonly associated with God.


Days of the Week: Sunday through Saturday

A 7-Day Week.


"In all, the number 7 is used in the Bible more than seven hundred times. If we also include the words related to seven(terms like sevenfold or seventy or seven hundred), the count is higher. The first use of the number 7 in the Bible relates to the creation week in Genesis 1. God spends six days creating the heavens and the earth, and then rests on the seventh day (Genesis 1-2:3). This is our template for the seven-day week, observed around the world to this day." "Thus, right at the start of the Bible, the number 7 is identified with something being “finished” or “complete.” From then on, that association continues, as 7 is often found in contexts involving completeness or divine perfection.” Read more... https://www.gotquestions.org/number-7-seven.html

7 Foundational Notes of Music. C-D-E-F-G-A-B


“The reason music is such a wonderful blessing is because God Himself designed music. It seems there is a spiritual version of music that exists apart from and transcending our physical universe. The Bible describes glorious music in God’s very throne room in heaven (Revelation 15:1-4).” “In Colossians 3:16 Paul wrote, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” https://lifehopeandtruth.com/bible/bible-study/bible-questions-and-answers/bible-about-music/


King David playing a 10 stringed harp.

"The bible tells us that David played the harp for King Saul and the troubling spirit left him (1 Samuel 16:14-23). The harp has the ability to quiet the soul and bring a level of calm that aids in healing and well being for the listener."

12 And God said: “This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: 13 I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth. 14 It shall be, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow shall be seen in the cloud; 15 and I will remember My covenant which is between Me and you and every living creature of all flesh; the waters shall never again become a flood to destroy all flesh. 16 The rainbow shall be in the cloud, and I will look on it to remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth.”
