Some believe that the number seven is a lucky number and for some it’s a perfect number. I was born on 6th January but my favourite number is 7. Read till the end to know the full article about number seven.
Let’s begin with what the Bible says about number seven.
In Scripture, seven often symbolizes completion or perfection. Genesis tells us that God created the heavens and the Earth in six days, and, upon completion, God rested on the seventh day (Genesis 1; 2:1-2).
Pastor Joseph Prince once mentioned in his sermon that seven is perfect and the word perfect have seven letters.
There’s nothing called as co-incidence or luck if you believe in the Word of God. Numbers in Biblical times were often symbolic of a deeper meaning. The number seven is especially prominent in Scripture, appearing over 700 times. From the seven days of Creation to the many “sevens” in Revelation, the number seven connotes such concepts as completion and perfection, exoneration and healing, and the fulfillment of promises and oaths.
A week has seven days. Now that’s a perfect week, isn’t it?
How you start the week might depend where you are or how you prefer. While, for example, the United States, Canada, Brazil, Japan and other countries consider Sunday as the first day of the week, and while the week begins with Saturday in much of the Middle East, the international ISO 8601 standard has Monday as the first day of the week.
The ancient times phrase saying, “sail in the seven seas” was very common. The worlds oceans were known as “Seven Seas” and it included the whole water body. Since the 19th century, the term has been taken to include seven oceanic bodies of water.
The Seven Seas include the Arctic, North Atlantic, South Atlantic, North Pacific, South Pacific, Indian, and Southern Oceans.
Schools taught on this subject almost all the times. Have you ever wondered that’s it’s perfect?
There are seven continents in the world. Ordered from largest in area to smallest, these seven regions are: Asia, Africa, North America, South America, Antarctica, Europe, and Australia.
Europe is considered to be the wealthiest and richest continent, however, there are poor regions especially in the eastern parts of the continent too!
However, despite being so richly endowed, and despite the mining boom of the past decade, Africa has drawn little benefit from this mineral wealth and remains one the poorest continents on the globe.
Antarctica is a unique continent in that it does not have a native population. There are no countries in Antarctica, although seven nations claim different parts of it: New Zealand, Australia, France, Norway, the United Kingdom, Chile, and Argentina.

Donald Trump’s father told him a story about a guy who loved soda, so he went into soda business, with a product he called 3UP. It failed. So he started again with a soda called 4UP. It failed, too. So he decided to name his product 5UP and worked just as hard to make it work, but sure enough, it failed again. He realised that he still loved soda, so he tried again with a product named 6UP. It failed, and he gave up completely.
Then, a few years later, someone else came up with a soda product and named it 7UP, which became a huge success.
The nickname CR7 is a simple combination of Ronaldo’s initials and his favoured number: Cristiano Ronaldo plus the number 7.
Cristiano Ronaldo has become the first footballer in history to become a billionaire during his career. According to Forbes , the Juventus star made $105 million (£83m) before tax in the last year, taking his total worth over the $1 billion (£789m) mark.
There are so many evidence about the number seven. King David referenced the number seven in describing the perfect nature of God’s words when he wrote that the Lord’s words are flawless, “like gold refined seven times” (Psalm 12:6). Likewise, when the prophet Isaiah described the coming Messiah, he listed seven qualities that the Savior would embody (Isaiah 11:1-2).
We further see seven’s connection with exoneration when Peter asks Jesus how many times we are to forgive each other and Jesus replies, “seventy times seven” times (Matthew 18:21-22). In that instance, Jesus isn’t telling us to literally forgive someone 490 times. Instead, Christ is instructing us to forgive each other wholly, as His Jewish audience would’ve understood the emphasis on the number seven in this teaching to indicate complete forgiveness.
To conclude with, King Jehoash was 7 years old when his reign began, and he reigned for 40 years. (2 Kings 12:1, 2 Chronicles 24:1)
If you don’t have a favourite number then this is your chance to choose a perfect number and become successful in life.
When I make tea, I take just seven minutes to make it a perfect. As my best friend Xu described it saying, “Tea in a perfect moment”. God bless you.
