The Biblical Significance of Number Nine

The number nine is used in scripture to establish the man or woman who is complete in the grace of God in the fullness of the power of God. This man has been perfected and prepared to be a vessel of honor before being divinely completed by God.
We see an example of this power this fulfilled in the life of Abraham. God brought him to the point of earthly perfection before asking him to sacrifice his own son. After he reached maturity God changed his name from Abram to Abraham which was his new beginning (number 8). He then endued Abraham with the power to negotiate with him in his decision to destroy Sodom. He actually visited Abraham beforehand to inform him of the intended action. No other man on earth had the spiritual authority to get God to actually bargain with him. This power gave Abraham the ability to intercede on behalf of man according to the right standing given to him in the sight of God.
1) Nine is the result of 6 (man) + 3 (the Godhead)
2) 3+3+3 (Father, Son, Holy Ghost), operating in the (soul, body, and spirit) of man producing (wisdom, grace, and power.
3) 8 (the man who has been renewed by God), +1 (the Spirit of God).
4) 4 (the man built on the foundation of the Godhead), + 5 (the grace of God).
The ninth hour of the day was the hour of prayer for the Hebrews. It is through the medium of prayer that we obtain power with God. The ninth hour was also the time that Jesus gave up the ghost on the cross, after saying, “it is finished,” meaning that God’s plan for the complete redemption of man had been accomplished and man could now walk in the fullness of power with God.
Gifts and Fruits 1 Corinthians chapter twelve, verses 8 thru 10 lists the nine Gifts of the Spirit which God uses to edify his church;
For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues.
Galatians chapter five verses 22 through 23 lists the nine Fruits of the Spirit which actually give us the power to overcome the enemy in our personal lives;
22 But the Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance, against such there is no law.
