    17. Quick review on symbolism in the bible

    18. Numbers (or mathematical figures) are never used promiscuously in the Bible, but rather take on spiritual meaning and significance; and for the searcher after truth there is found "the treasures of wisdom and knowledge" (Proverbs 25:2). • All creation is stamped with the "Seal of God" in numerics. God has made man himself a creature of time and therefore, a creature of number. Therefore, it is consistent with the very nature and being of God that His Book, the Holy Bible, should be stamped with this same "Seal" - Biblical numerics.

    19. God is consistent throughout His Book, and though the Bible was written by various men of God over different periods of time and generations, there is manifest throughout all the Bible, the same marvelous meaning and harmony in the use of numbers. This begins in Genesis and flows through each book and consummates in Revelation. • All this confirms the fact of Divine Inspiration (II Timothy 3:16, II Peter 1:21). The simple numbers of 1 through 13 have spiritual significanceMultiples of these numbers, or doubling and tripling, carry basically the same meaning only intensifying the truth. It is important to note that the first use of a number in scripture generally conveys its spiritual meaning throughout the rest of the passage.

    25. John wycliff 1 • Death : december 30 ,1384 • John was the most famous priest of his day. His learning was immense. He had been a leading scholar at Oxford and a chaplain to the King of England. • More to the point, he spoke out boldly against the errors of the popes, the organizational hierarchy of the Roman Church, and the corruption of the clergy in his day. He criticized not only the organization of the medieval church but its theology as well and argued for a return to the Scriptures. • Pastors should live lives of simplicity and holiness, he taught, shepherding their flocks (people)--not plundering them.

    26. John wycliff 2 • If the people in England were to know the truth, John reasoned that they must have the Word of God in their own language. • Under his direction, the Bible was translated into English for the first time, although the job was not completed by his associates until 1395, eleven years after his death. • Repeatedly condemned and burned by church authorities, copies of Wycliffe's Bible continued in use for over a century, until printed Bibles took their place. • This work greatly influenced William Tyndale who made the first printed translation of the New Testament in English.

    27. John wycliff 3 • John Wycliffe died of his stroke on the last day of the year. The religious authorities had never excommunicated him because they feared public opinion--the people loved John and his fame was international. • So he was buried in consecrated soil. • But about thirty years later, the Council of Constance revenged itself on his criticism by condemning his teachings and ordering his bones to be dug up and burned. • But the burning of such a man's bones could not end his influence. As John Foxe said in his book of martyrs, • "though they digged [dug] up his body, burnt his bones, and drowned his ashes, yet the Word of God and the truth of his doctrine, with the fruit and success thereof, they could not burn; • which yet to this day...doth remain."

    29. Since God is consistent, the meaning of a number in the book of Genesis remains the same all the way to the book of Revelation. Sometimes the spiritual significance of a number is not always stated; it may be hidden or seen by comparison with other scriptures. • Finally, since there isgood and evilas well astrue and counterfeit, both Godly and Satanicaspects can be seen in numbers.
