7 Significant Numbers From The Bible by DharmyYinks: 8:35am On Jun 05, 2016
What are seven significant numbers in the Bible, and why are they significant from other numbers listed in the Word of God?


The Number Three in the Godhead

The number three is significant in the Bible because there are three Persons in the Godhead: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. They also have three significant attributes–they are omniscient (all-knowing), omnipresent (present everywhere), and omnipotent (all-powerful).



Forty, the Number of Testing

Forty is often a number of testing in the Scriptures. Israel had to wander in the wilderness for 40 years because of their unfaithfulness (Num. 14:33). Jesus and Moses fasted for 40 days and nights (Matt. 4:2; Ex 34:28). The rain fell for 40 days and 40 nights during the flood of Noah’s day (Gen. 7:12). The Israel spies were in the land of Canaan for 40 days and nights. Jesus was seen after His resurrection for 40 days.



Twelve Tribes , Apostles, and Months

Twelve seems to be the number of God’s elective service since there were 12 tribes, 12 apostles, and 12 months in the year. Even the day and night are broken down into 12-hour periods.



Seventy, the Number Connected with God’s Administration

After the flood, it was Noah’s 70 descendants who repopulated the earth (Gen. 10). The people of Judah spent 70 years in exile in Babylon (Jer. 5:11, 29:10). Jesus sent forth 70 to spread the Gospel (Luke 10:1). Seventy elders were appointed to help Moses administer Israel in the Wilderness.



Six, the Number of Created Things

God created man on the sixth day. A Hebrew servant served six years before he was freed. Man was commanded to work for six days (Ex 20:9).



Two, the Number of Unity

The man and woman became one flesh (Gen.
1:27). Two cannot walk together unless they agree (Amos 3:3). Animals were sacrificed in twos. The disciples and the apostles were sent out in twos (Matt. 6:7).



Ten, thee Number of Responsibilities

Jesus frequently used the number 10 in His parables. Egypt suffered through 10 plagues. There are 10 Commandments. On the 10th day of the first month, the Passover Lamb was offered. A tithe is one-tenth. The image that Daniel saw had 10 toes.

The word 'Trinity' was not exactly used but this verse in 1John 5:7 will clear your doubt " For there are three who bear witness in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit; and these three are one."
Note that the 'Word' means Jesus.

do not use inferences and assumptions, if God is trinity why did the bible his word not use that exact word "trinity'"? it's ok you admitted the exact word is not used, that obviously means God is not a trinity. God is one, and his name is Yaweh or Jehovah, He have a Son, and his name is Jesus Christ, His active force He uses to bring his will to pass is "Spirit". It is better understood the way it is than going morethan what is written in God's word. The trinity doctrine is the most reprehensible teachings in God's name, even the proponents agree that they can't fully explain it. Besides does it make any sense at all?
