AFTER SIX DAYS-1

AFTER SIX DAYS-1
Mark 9:2 “And after six days Jesus taketh with him Peter, and James, and John, and leadeth them up into an high mountain apart by themselves: and he was transfigured before them.”

Our focal scripture introduces us to something that took place after six days. We were told that Jesus took Peter, James and John to a high mountain.

Jesus wanted showing them the transformational power of prayer but waited till after six days. He needed them to see a secret but didn’t take them there till six days was over.

Six in Bible numerology is the number of man and his imperfections. According to Genesis 1:31, man was created on the sixth day, which was the first time six was mentioned. According to Bible scholars, just as the number 7 typically signifies completion or perfection especially of God, the number 6 is one shy of that, which means it signifies imperfection. More specifically, it refers to the imperfection of man and the sin and weakness he has.

The sixth chapter of Joshua is where we read that Joshua and the Israelites marched around Jericho once a day for six days with seven priests each carrying a trumpet (remember, seven means perfection). It was on the seventh day that the people were to march around Jericho seven times with the priests blowing the trumpets so the city walls would fall.

God commanded the Israelites to march for six days to prove their imperfect ability to demolish Jericho. But on the seventh day, God destroyed the city so that He alone would receive the glory. Only God is perfect, and only He can perform perfect miracles. It’s not by man’s power, but only by the hand of God.

Revelations 13:18 “Solve a riddle: Put your heads together and figure out the meaning of the number of the Beast. It’s a human number: six hundred sixty-six.” (MSG)

The so called anti-Christ’s number is 666, which signifies a complete man. He is the most perfect man yet with weaknesses. Man’s weakness is why number 6 is called the “number of man.”

What has this got to do with us?
