  1. have you considered the fact that Abraham, Issac, and Jacob had a total of 7 mothers of their children. As well as there are 7 pieces of furniture in the tabernacle of Moses (ark and mercy seat being 2 pieces).

    • Austin,

      No, I had not considered those things. Thanks for bringing them to my attention. That is what I want people to do. Hopefully, next week I can find sometime to research your points some more, and write about them.

      Don

    • Austin,
      Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob had a total of six wives as it relates to the story in Genesis. There were four wives or concubines for Jacob, and one wife for Isaac, and Sarah was the wife of Abraham. However, if we count Abraham’s other wives or concubines, then we have to add two more for Hagar and Keturah, which gives a total of eight. Or did I miss something?

  2. what about the book of Job6 times he forgave the 7th and he was blessed and receive more than he lost they sat with him 7days 7 holes in our head 7 bones in ur ankle the list goes on

    • As I stated previously, I started in the Book of Genesis and I am tracing all the appearances of seven in the Bible that I can find. At the present time, I have made it as far as the Book of Judges, and I am continuing. It will be a while before I get to the Book of Job, but, Lord willing, I will get there and will write of the times that seven appears in that Book. Please subscribe, and please be patient, and you will get an email every time I provide another occurrence of seven.

  3. Hello- Just last week I listened to a presentation by Chuck Missler talking about 7’s in the Bible. He did a video talking about the book of Matthew and how the Greek text (Greek letters are also numbers) is divisible by the number 7. There were so many 7’s in that text it would have been impossible for a person to compose it on their own or with computer technology today. The video is on YouTube and it’s called “Hidden Treasures in the Bible”. It was kind of a long presentation and this subject begins at about 50 minutes. What a great treasure to convince a skeptic. God is still doing miracles for us to see every day. God Bless you with your project:) I hope you enjoy hearing this if you do go to listen.

  4. Yes, Ascents 1. Exodus 19:3-6. Descents. 19:7-8

    2 19:8-13. 2. 19:14-19

    3 19:20-24. 3. 19:25

    4 20:21. 4. 24: 3

    5. 24:9-32:14. 5. 32:15-30

    6. 32:31-33. 6 32:34-34:3

    7 34:4-28. 7 34:29-35

  5. Please note that the number seven in every case fits the image seen in the Book of Daniel which is stated from God BUT the interpretation is stated as Daniels’ meaning this image is the outline of what God intends to do over the time frame of earth and the Church era. The Stone is the return of Jesus. The New testament is loaded with Sevens pointing again to what God intends to do. TIME IS NOT THE ISSUE. Strong chance it is begining in our age.

  6. thank you, please continue with your project, i am working on a project too, to see why God requires us to keep the seventh day holly

  7. Even if you stop counting at 72 the odds of that happening by pure chance collectively across 66 books written by 40 blokes over thousands of years is 1×7 to the 72 power! Try and do the math on that and you will quickly see that only a mind outside of our mere 4 dimensions could have stage managed that!

  8. I am enjoying your list, but wanted to point out a small error: Numbers 29.7 – Day of Atonement observed in the tenth month. The Day of Atonement was observed in the 7th month on the 10th day, not the 10th month.

  9. Also, Passover is the 14th day of the month (7×2) Exodus 12:6,18, Leviticus 23:5, Numbers 28:16, Joshua 5:10. There are several 7×2 sequences. Also, have no yeast in houses and eat no yeast for 7 days during Unleavened Bread Exodus 12:19 which is similar to saying eat unleavened bread for 7 days.

  10. A teacher and world renown speaker named Arthur Burk says that every list of seven in the Bible corresponds to the seven redemptive gifts in the human spirit – prophet, servant, teacher, exhorter, giver, ruler, and mercy. I hope to begin researching this and digging deeply into it today.

  11. Have you ever heard of Ivan Panin? He was a Christian mathematician who dedicated his life to finding God’s seal of sevens in the Bible.

      • Ivan Panin wrote a long list of studies, tracts and books on the designs of seven in scripture. He died in 1942. He has a great study titled The Last Twelve Verses of Mark I which he shows that the vocabulary which is peculiar to each of the four gospels is designed upon the number seven. In other words, vocabulary words used only in Matthew and in no other book are designed in sevens(their number, vowels, covenants, plural, singular, masculine, feminine, letter totals, etc, etc) To do this Matthew had to be the last writer having Mark, Luke, and John before him. But the other three books have the same design. So each was written last (impossible) or God wrote , designed them all !

      • Dear Don, I have written to you sometime back (see June 18, 2016 at 7:38 am) on the Sevens in Revelation. I have some more to add to your collection from the Book of Jonah, where the word “great” is given seven times – verses as below:

        Jonah 1:2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before Me.”

        Jonah 1:4 But the LORD sent out a great wind on the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so that the ship was about to be broken up.

        Jonah 1:12 And he said to them, “Pick me up and throw me into the sea; then the sea will become calm for you. For I know that this great tempest is because of me.”

        Jonah 1:17 Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights.

        Jonah 3:2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and preach to it the message that I tell you.”

        Jonah 3:3 So Jonah arose and went to Nineveh, according to the word of the LORD. Now Nineveh was an exceedingly great city, a three-day journey in extent.

        Jonah 4:11 And should I not pity Nineveh, that great city, in which are more than one hundred and twenty thousand persons who cannot discern between their right hand and their left—and much livestock?

        As always, all credit goes to our Heavenly Father. May God bless you. Thomas M. Jayabhai

  12. Don, as well the messages of the Bible, the heart of its messages, are in the 7th verses and the multiples of 7, as well as the first and last verses. A good example is Numbers 7 where each of the 12 tribes offers the same gifts. Each gift is mentioned in a verse that’s a multiple of 7. Luke 15 is another great example, where the heart of the prodigal son story is told in the verses that are multiples of 7. Wonder what you think of this.

    • Lucy,

      I am not at home, but I will be back on Sunday, then on Monday I will be in my office and I can give some thought to your comment then.

      Thanks for writing and your attention to detail in Scripture fascinates me.

    • The chapter and verse numberings are interesting. For example, I always thought that it was interesting that John 3.16 shows the love of God, and First John 3.16 shows the love of a Christian.

      Yet, the chapter and verse divisions were put in by man, not by the Holy Spirit.

      What then shall we say about things such as you mention? Is it mere coincidence? or did the Holy Spirit have something to do with it?

      When I see interesting things in the versification of the Bible, I think, God did it, but when I see the versification divided up in such a way that it breaks up the thought of the original writer, I think, Man did it.

      • Chapter and verse design are as inspired as are the jots and tittles and the words themselves. Steven Langton placed chapter headings in the 13 th century , inspired and guided by the Holy Spirit, and verses were set similarly in 1551 by Robert Estienne of France. Note that although chapter headings were not installed until the 13th century AD , the Holy Spirit anticipates their inclusion in Acts 13:33 , mentioning a “second” Psalm. The evidence that verse structures are of Holy Spirit design is overwhelming. They contain mathematic design beyond the ability of man to create. See some of Vernon Jenkins studies ( Head of Mathematics, University of South Wales, Glamorgan), also studies of Ian Mallet, Paul Black, John Tng, etc. You might note that both chapter and verse sequences are peculiar in their application ; a mark that they had a non human creation. Some begin mid sentence , others include two sentences in a single verse— see Gen 1:2 for example ; John 7:53 – John 8:1 ; Eph 2:8-9. There is a reason for this. It is not a haphazard placement. A Creator who counts the hairs on your head , He controls the most minute details. He surely counts verses. Luke was a gentile and the Lord could certainly use an Englishman and a Frenchman…..both gentiles.

  13. Thank you for the big list of sevens in the Bible and it is really interesting to find out why God is giving importance to the number 7. I am doing a study on the Book of Revelation and I would like to share the sevens which are in that book

    • Thanks, Thomas, for submitting your list of sevens from the Book of Revelation. I have a sermon that I preach in which I state that the Book of Revelation could easily be called the Book of Sevens.

      There are also seven beatitudes in the Book of Revelation.

      I will include your list when I get to the Book of Revelation, and give you credit.

      Don

  14. Thank you Don for your kind words. We all learn from the Bible and as long as God is the author, no man is eligible for any credits. All glory goes to God.

    I would appreciate if you could let me know in which chapter / verses is the seven beatitudes in the Book of Revelation – I could not find it !

    I hope you have heard of the Bible Codes – I am a fan of Dr. Chuck Missler and he is an expert in the Bible Codes and related explanations. As per Dr. Missler, the Book of Revelation is riddled with sevens when going through the Bible Codes. I am sure you have watched his videos on You Tube. God Bless.

    • Thomas,

      You are welcome, and thanks for the interest in my web site, and for your willingness to contribute material to it.

      Do you have a Bible program on your computer? If so, just do a search for, “Blessed,” in the Book of Revelation. If you do not have a Bible application on your computer, I will give you the references and a sermon that I preached on the subject.

    • Thomas,

      In case you did not find the passages, here they are:

      Rev 1.3 – Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.
      Rev 14.13 – Then I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Write. ‘Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.’ ” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, and their works follow them.”
      Rev 16.15 – “Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.”
      Rev 19.9 – Then he said to me, “Write. ‘Blessed are those who are called to the marriage supper of the Lamb!’ ” And he said to me, “These are the true sayings of God.”
      Rev 20.6 – Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection. Over such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.
      Rev 22.7 – “Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
      Rev 22.14 – Blessed are those who do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city.

  15. Dear Don,

    Wow! Thanks a lot – I never expected to see this in the Revelation! (Just couldn’t believe it!). In fact, never searched for the word ‘Blessed’ in the Revelation. Now when I searched for them, there are exactly 7 of them. Even though I had read the book a few times and also did a general study on the book, I never really ‘saw’ them !

    At the moment I am doing a detailed study of Daniel and for that purpose, I have to do a study on the Revelation as well. These seven beatitudes should be helpful in my studies.

    Thank you so much – God Bless you Don.

    • The Book of Revelation also is a series of 7 somewhat overlapping-visions, kind of like the Lord did in the Book of Daniel and how the Lord showed overlapping-visions to Pharaoh during the days of Joseph.

  16. The Words desire is to become flesh. There is a process to this. He lays His life down and takes it up in another. And again, and again, reaching maturity in the seventh. This is His oath operating.

    In John’s gospel he lays out seven signs. These seven are the process of the Word becoming flesh. Reaching maturity in the seven: the resurrection of the friend.

    In the Revelation 1-3 the Word returns frim the hand of the gentile overcomers to the Jewish remnant (john) for a writing to the seven churches. This process brings us into the ooen heaven of chapter 4 and exactly seven ascents and seven descents across every verse in chapters 4-20. This is the overcomers and Jewish remnant from the cahpters 1-3 sevening, now bringing the oath upon all!
    The true and living God moves in the sevening of His oath. He measures all things into holiness by the hand of His saints in the measures of His oath.

  17. Greetings, everyone. I just came onto this site and as we know, nothing happens by chance in the life of a follower our Messiah. One “7” I didn’t pick up: Genesis 1:1 has 10 words in the English and most other (that I use) translations. However, in Hebrew there are only 7 words: בְּ·רֵאשִׁ֖ית בָּרָ֣א אֱלֹהִ֑ים אֵ֥ת הַ·שָּׁמַ֖יִם וְ·אֵ֥ת הָ·אָֽרֶץ׃
    . This is transliterated to “B’resheet bara Elohim et hashamayim v’et ha’aretz”. In Hebrew there are two words for “create”. The one used here, בָּרָ֣א (bara), means to create something out of nothing. Sorry for the evolutionists!

  18. By the way, the אֵ֥ת (et) is aleph and tav (Hebrew is read from right to left), the first and last letters of the Hebrew alephbet (alphabet). While this word is unique to Hebrew and can’t be translated into any other language, it shows the deity of Messiah and His involvement in Creation right from the beginning. In Revelation 1:8, 21:6 and 22:13 He says: “I am the beginning and the end.”

  19. Hi Dan thanks for the block this is great I’ve been doing the sevens to and going crazy back and forth back and forth keep up the good work I appreciate all the homework you’re giving me I just found this site and I’ve been trying to do it on my own.
    Keep up the good work and let us know on the updates God bless

  20. There are seven times that the word “gospel” is used in the book of Mark, which suggests the genuineness and right that verses 16:9-20 deserve their place in the canon of the New Testament.: Mar_1:1, Mar_1:14-15 (2),Mar_8:35, Mar_10:29 Mar_13:10, Mar_14:9, Mar_16:15,

  21. In Joshua 3:10, there is a list of 7 nations that God will drive out before the Israelites: Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites, Jebusites.

  22. Something I received via e-mail, but don’t see on the blog yet, is Lucy Naylor’s reply. God bless you, Lucy, as Y’shua (Jesus for the Greeks/Christians) never went to church, but to the temple, and He only did that on the Sabbath – the SEVENTH day. This isn’t a Jewish thing, but was created by God in Genesis 2:2-3 for the entire world. It was only consecrated and brought to form in Exodus 20. The “chosen nation” was to teach these commandments to the entire world – they were to be a kingdom ~of~ priests. Yet, because of their disobedience and unbelief, they were made a nation ~with~ priests. This is also one of the reasons they reject Y’shua as Messiah. However, Ephesians 2:11-22 tells us clearly that they will once again be incorporated into the body of Messiah.

    • Jesus had not built His church yet, for He promised it during His ministry according to Matthew 16.18. Therefore, He attended the synagogue. He observed the Sabbath, because He lived under the Law of Moses. In Exodus 5.15, Moses explained why Israel had to keep the Sabbath, and you will notice that this only speaks of something that Israel experienced, “And remember that you were a slave in the land of Egypt, and the Lord your God brought you out from there by a mighty hand and by an outstretched arm; therefore the Lord your God commanded you to keep the Sabbath day.” It was also at Mount Sinai that the Lord revealed for the time that Israel should keep the Sabbath, “You made known to them Your holy Sabbath, and commanded them precepts, statutes and laws, by the hand of Moses Your servant” (Nehemiah 9.14). Therefore, Sabbath-keeping was a sign between Israel and God, “Speak also to the children of Israel, saying: ‘Surely My Sabbaths you shall keep, for it is a sign between Me and you throughout your generations, that you may know that I am the Lord who sanctifies you. You shall keep the Sabbath, therefore, for it is holy to you. Everyone who profanes it shall surely be put to death; for whoever does any work on it, that person shall be cut off from among his people. Work shall be done for six days, but the seventh is the Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day, he shall surely be put to death. Therefore the children of Israel shall keep the Sabbath, to observe the Sabbath throughout their generations as a perpetual covenant. It is a sign between Me and the children of Israel forever; for in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, and on the seventh day He rested and was refreshed” (Exodus 31.13-17).

  23. Hello Don. I can highly recommend the teachings of Arthur Burk (mentioned earlier) of Sapphire Leadership Group. His website http://www.theslg.com is a treasure trove, with many free articles and audios.
    He has linked the 7 redemptive gifts to things such as the 7 last words of Christ, the 7 articles in the tabernacle, 7 curses and 7 blessings, the 7 churches in Revelations, etc. I wonder how the 7 trees in Isaiah 41:19 relate here. What about the 7 colours of God’s rainbow. Interesting to ponder…. May God bless your research with ever increasing light!

  24. Greetings Don, here is another. After the son of man, with the seven stars in hand, walks through the seven churches (Revelation 1-3), then comes seven ascents into heaven and seven descents, covering every verse from chapter 4-20. Enjoy.
