God has many favorite numbers that appear repeatedly in the Bible. For example:
Three (3) - Of course, this represents the Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Jesus rose the third day and was tempted three times by Satan. Peter also denied Jesus three times.
Ten (10) – God gave Moses the 10 Commandments and gave Egypt the 10 plaques. Jesus uses parables about 10 servants, 10 pounds, 10 virgins and 10 coins.
Forty (40) – Moses lived for 40 years in both Egypt and the Wilderness. He also spent 40 days and nights on Mount Sinai two different times. Jesus spent forty days with the Disciples between His Resurrection and Ascension.
There are also values that God didn’t specifically mention in the Bible. However, trying to understand the magnitude of God’s work, we’ll take a swing at trying to quantify some of these values as best the Laws of Nature and Physics permit.
In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1
God called the dry ground "land," and the gathered waters he called "oceans." Genesis 10
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. Genesis 27
But not a hair of your head will perish. Luke 21: 18
These incredibly large numbers should put all of us in awe of God. Every time you get sand in your bathing suit or gripe about too many voicemails, be thankful you need only remember one number - Him.
