MIchael Jackson And The Number 7.

Throughout the Bible, numbers are used consistently and repetitively with strong emphasis on the number seven. The frequent use of seven is obvious even to an occasional reader of the Scriptures.

Seven is in the Bible more than any other number. The number seven in the Bible is associated with “completeness.” Other numbers seem to have symbolic meanings as well. If you're in to Numbers , you'll probably enjoy — and perhaps even find deep meaning in, or not. TMZ's has a list of coincidences involving Michael Jackson and the number seven:
  1. Jackson signed his will on 7/7/02
  2. Jackson’s memorial service was on 7/7/09, which is exactly 7 years after his will was signed
  3. Jackson has 7 letters in his first and last name
  4. Jackson is the 7th of nine children
  5. Jackson was born in 1958 — 19 + 58 = 77
  6. Jackson died on the 25th — 2 + 5 = 7
  7. Jackson’s biggest hits, “Black and White” and “Billy Jean,” were each No. 1 for 7 weeks Jackson’s three biggest albums — “Thriller,” “Bad” and “Dangerous” — each produced 7 Top 40 hits.

There are multiple Biblical references to "7" as well: "7" symbolizes "completeness" -- there were 7 days of creation, 7 days of rain after Noah entered the ark, 7 miracles in the gospel John, 7 churches in Revelation and 7 miracles on the Sabbath, among others.

  1. Are you kidding? What has MJ have to do with biblical numerics, and who cares?

    Here is where we lose sight of what is important (Christ) and take one aspect of the bible and put too much emphasis on it.

    I don't understand the point of this post.

    It would have been better to do a post on biblical numerics and talk about the significance of the numbers 1 through 10.

  3. Hi Ann,

    I blogged about that also and I think it's just coincidence but it's interesting hough.. reminds me of the Kennedy & Lincoln coincidences--fascinatingly odd whether true or fals.
