Bible numerology: 'The Bible Code', fourth book of Moses & bible verses!

Michael Drosnin (author of 'The Bible Code') has written about bible numerology meanings, and the fourth of book of Moses is called 'Numbers'; nevertheless, one can still wonder about: what is biblical numerology really and what do numbers mean in the bible? Biblical numerology basically concerns the study of numbers in the Bible. Biblical numerology should not be associated with making any type of prophecy and it does not represent a requirement for understanding the bible. But one should be aware that numerical symbolism is a very important aspect of the mystical tradition of Bible interpretation. In many stories in the Old Testament, numbers play a significant part in dreams and their interpretation! But what can we say about Bible numerology meanings?

The Bible includes many numerical symbols and references to specific numbers. Two of the most commonly repeated numbers in the Bible are the numbers '7' and '40'. But can we apply any significance to those numbers in the perspective of numerology readings? What is the meaning of bible numbers '7' and '40'?

• Various bible verses refer to numerology in the bible, some of them point out that the number '7' signifies “God’s number”, for He is the only One who is perfect and complete ( Genesis 7:2-4; Revelation 1:20; 4:5; 5:1, 5:6).

• The number '40' is often understood as the “number of probation or trial”. Some examples: the Israelites wandered for 40 years (Deuteronomy 8:2-5); Moses was living on the mount for 40 days (Exodus 24:18); the story of Jonah and Nineveh lasted 40 days (Jonah 3:4); Jesus was tempted for 40 days (Matthew 4:2); and there were 40 days between Jesus’ resurrection and his ascension (Acts 1:3).

The validity of the interpretation of the biblical numerology charts & codes and numbers is still debated in many circles. However, the Bible definitely appears to use some numbers in patterns. However, it appears obvious that some people put too much significance on the numbers in the Bible, for trying to find a special meaning behind every single number doesn't likely make sense. Often, a number in the Bible can simply be: only a number. God doesn't call us to search for secret meanings, hidden messages, and codes in the Bible. For example, one of these bible quotes refers to Deuteronomy 30:11, which says:

"For this commandment which I command thee this day,
it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off".
