THE GREAT NUMBERER
Numbers, measures and weights are parts of the language of heaven, and many times are specific sermons or prophetic indicators of spiritual themes. Literally everything God designs is embedded with a brilliant mathematical code – music, flowers, space – bible numeric appears to be God’s watermark of authenticity. It prevents counterfeiting. So when King Jesus tells us that the very number of hairs on our heads are numbered, He’s telling us that we are stamped by the hand of God, our Father and Creator.
“Are not five sparrows sold for two copper coins? And not one of them is forgotten before God. 7 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
The Lord numbers the things He cares about! He cares for us so much as unique individuals that He numbered the hairs on our heads. He cares so much about our daily lives that He numbered our days. Psalm 37:18 – “The days of the upright are numbered by the Lord, and their heritage will be for ever.” He’s so intentional about the numbering of things, that He has at least one angel dedicated to it!
Daniel 8:13 says, “Then I heard one saint speaking and another saint said unto that certain saint which spake how long will it be until the vision concerning their daily sacrifice and the transgression of the desolation…how long?”
In the Hebrew, what king James and the boys have translated “that certain saint” is a word called “Palmoni” which is the numberer of secrets or the wonderful numberer. Why? Because it all glorifies God!
God uses numbers to establish His truth, but it is His truth and not the numbers. So when we seek Him and His truth, many times the numbers will back up what He is already speaking to us.
