The Divine Power of Seven

Learn Biblical Hebrew online

  • The Most Deeply Sacred Number

    Pretty much anywhere you look in the Bible you find seven. The number seven is mentioned over 700 times in Scripture. The Book of Revelation alone contains dozens of sevens – churches, bowls, lamps, seals, and the list goes on. In ancient Israel, the number seven was thought to be a symbol of divine perfection. As opposed to other numbers which derive their power from human endeavors, seven comes from God.

    The Sevenfold Spirit of the Lord

    What evidence is there for God’s identity being related to the number seven? If we look at the famous “branch of Jesse” prophecy in Isaiah chapter 11, we find that the Holy Spirit will come to rest upon the Messiah in seven distinct facets:

    1. “The Spirit of the Lord shall rest on him רוּחַ יְהוָה ruaḥ adonai
    2. The spirit of wisdom רוּחַ חָכְמָה ruaḥ hohma
    3. And understanding וּבִינָה ruaḥ bina
    4. The spirit of counsel רוּחַ עֵצָה ruaḥ etza
    5. And might וּגְבוּרָה ruaḥ gevura
    6. The spirit of knowledge רוּחַ דַּעַת ruaḥ da’at
    7. And the fear of the Lord” (Isa. 11:2) וְיִרְאַת יְהוָה ruaḥ yirat adonai
