The Biblical Significance of Number Five

Take Me To Post Comment Form

Five is God's number of grace and it pertains to his dealings with men in the earth. Five follows a spiritual progression from the meanings of numbers one through four.

One; is the number of God from which all things come. Two; represents act of bringing forth the Son (the second person of the trinity) to accomplish salvation. Remember that God will always bring forth another when there is a work to be accomplished. Three; represents the trinity, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost who are united as one. They are the truth upon which all things are built. They bear witness to each other and their witness is the foundation of all truth. Four; is the foundation of works which are done in the earth by the man whom God created, and; Five; represents the grace which man needs in order to succeed because it is impossible to do so in our own flesh.

God gave us five senses to use as we operate in the earth realm, along with five fingers on each hand and five toes on each foot. Two hands and two feet are required to work together. God brought Jesus out from himself accomplish salvation just as he brought the woman out of the man to accomplish dominion over the earth.

John 1:16 reads; 16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

Grace is needed on each hand.

Zechariah 4:7 reads; 6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. 7Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.

We will prevail in the work only by the grace of God. We fail when we attempt to do it in the power of the flesh. Grace has to be given to each hand. This is why grace is given twice in the scripture above.

The salvation of the law is put forth in the ten commandments. The first five deal with man's relationship to God, while the second five deal with man's relationship to one another. We were not able to keep the commandments so grace had to be brought forth so that we would live. You can see that the two sets of five must work together and be equipped with the grace of God in order to be successful. Selah. The law could not save apart from Christ and neither will we be successful apart from the grace of God.

There were five different offerings in the old testament used to deal with the problem of sin; They were the 1) sin offering; 2) the trespass offering; 3) the burnt offering; 4) the grain offering; and 5) the peace offering. Each offering pointed to one aspect of Christ's acts of grace to bring forth salvation.

Jesus used five loaves of bread to feed the 5,000, as well as a fivefold ministry to edify the body of Christ. He is given five names in Isaiah 9:6.

In the latter chapters of the book of Genesis we see Joseph deal gracefully with his younger brother Benjamin, who is an allegory of the church.

Genesis 43:29; 29And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me? And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.

Benjamin was given five times more 1) food, and 2) clothing because he found favor in Joseph's eyes.

John 3:16 reads; 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

This verse speaks of God's loving grace and follows the spiritual progression which I mentioned earlier.

"For God," speaks of number one which is God in his divine wisdom and power.

"So loved the world," addresses number two because it was the reason that Jesus was brought forth from the Father to accomplish the salvation of man by grace.

"That whosoever should believe in him," represents the truth of the Godhead (number three). Remember that the Father, Son, and Spirit are one and are the foundation of everything accomplished in heaven and earth. Whosoever receives the truth of the Godhead is saved.

"Shall not perish." We are not saved by our works but by the grace of God. Those who rely on their own efforts will always fail. The foundation of our works (number four) must be power of the Godhead. Remember that four represents the foundation on which all earthly works should should be built.

"But have everlasting life." Is a symbol of the grace of God (number five). It is by his divine grace that we live.
