Although there are many numbers in the Bible with distinct significance and representation, the luckiest number is 7 in the Bible. The reason behind this is totally based on beliefs and devotion of the people. Number 7 is called God’s number as God is the only one who is complete, divine perfect, and beyond everything.
Mythologically, it is said that God spent six days to create the earth and on the seventh day, he took rest. He could have created the earth within one day only but he wanted to show a pattern to all human beings to follow that order.
Same has been quoted in Fourth Commandment in Exodus 34:21 “Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest. In plowing time and in harvest you shall rest.” God commanded to all humankind that they should not take rest before six days as these are meant for work only.
Although there are many other references for the number, the most signifying one is that it represents divine and completion. The number seven in the Bible is mentioned at least 490 times.
The weirdest thing about this number 7 is that people have put too much stock on its significance that they misinterpreted it.
In the Bible, the number 7 is considered to be not only lucky but also powerful. Seven is the number that is used in order to describe the creation story. It took 7 days for the Lord in order to create the world even if the 7th day is used for resting. The Hebrew word “gad” is connected to the number 7 too.
There are also some stories in the bible that makes use of the number 7 often. For example, when forgiving others, it is best if people would forgive more than 7 times. 777 is often connected to Christianity. According to some scholars, 7 symbolizes completeness in the Bible.
