WHAT'S IN BIBLICAL NUMBERS, SYMBOLS (ALPHANUMERIC) AND COLORS AND WHAT DO THEY HAVE TO DO WITH A PERSON'S NAME?
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.—ACTS 4:12
Year 2009 is the Year of Numbers (combination or non combination of the digits 0 to 9), then of Symbols (alphanumeric) and of Colors. It is the understanding of these Numbers (0 - 9), Symbols (alphanumeric) and Colors that would yield to us the keys to making this Year 2009 a Year of Fruitfulness. 9 (Nine) is the Number of Fruitfulness - Every full and proper human birthing must take place on the Ninth Month just like the Manifestations of the Fruit of the Holy Spirit and the Gift of the Holy Spirit are Nine - Gal. 5:22-23 and 1 Cor. 12:8-10. In biblical ways, these gifts determine the name or the authority we bear. Our Authority is found in the Name in us and Over us. In other words, our names are symbolic of the gift or gifts of us in us which is the authority of our Spiritual Office - the Key to Overcoming in life. Yet, Biblical names are the combination of symbols (Hebrew characters of letters or numbers - alphanumeric) and carry great significance and reveal their bearer's very nature or their God-given overcoming authority - over Satan and Man as they walk through this Earth.
For our case study in this blogspot, let us consider Abraham - the Father of our Faith and let us examine how in covenant his name became a combination of symbolic characters or alphanumeric. Before completing His covenant with Abram, God (whose name is spelled YHWH in Hebrew and written as alphanumeric or symbols) took the symbol-like letter "H" from His own name and placed it in the names Abram (Abraham) and Sarai (Sarah). Please note that in Hebrew symbol-writings, the "H" represents God's breath, and in so doing He (God whose most dreaded full name is Jehovah) breathed new life into this childless covenant couple. By putting His name on them, He was putting His authority into their lives and it is now up to them to exercise that authority over their circumstances and over the world around themselves.
Every law enforcement agent on Earth in any nation must have an Official Number. This is from time immemorial. But where and how did man learn to tag a number of enforcement on man as an agent of dominion in the natural realm? Do you realize that even in Heaven, Angels (Revelation chapters 8 to 10) have their duties defined by their numbers and alphanumeric symbolic name of God that is upon them. But the acts of God in using alphanumeric symbolisms to stamp Himself on His people did not end with Abraham and Sarah nor with the Angels. Thus, God has put into us His Name - which is His authority to act as Himself or God like - that which has been His plan for us from the beginning of creation. Gen. 1: 26-28. God has made us His Oracles when He said that we are His people which are called by His Name (either His Name YHWH - that most dreaded full name Jehovah or whatever alphanumeric symbolic name of His choosing) in 2 Chronicles 7:14. But the most powerful revelation of the alphanumeric symbolism of God in stamping Himself on us (making us into gods over this generation or earth) was finally done in Christ Jesus. Our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus gave us new name. Jesus made this decree, "Him that overcometh . . . I will write upon him my New Name" (Revelation 3:12). Therefore as Oracles and God-like people, we are nothing else but Overcomers in this age and generation.
But what is this New Name (New Authority) of Jesus Christ that has been stamped on us as Overcomers? I submit to you that it is all the complete embodiment and the full alphanumeric ramification of His Name YHWH - that most dreaded full name Jehovah or whatever symbolic Name of His choosing as in 2 Chronicles 7:14 and as found from Genesis to Revelation. Hence it is written, "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name (invoking the authority) of the Lord shall be saved" (Acts 2:21). Jesus means "God saves." Because God gave His Son a name which is above every name (Philippians 2:9), we can rejoice today that we are partakers of that glorious covenant and that even the devils are subject unto us through His name or by His empowered Authority! (Luke 10:17). We must walk and live our Father in Heaven, being seated in the Heavenly Places in Christ Jesus. For we are gods.
I confess Your name, Jesus - the Anointed One and His Anointing - because that is my authority over this life and age. I rest in the security of Your name which is my authority to overcome this world and Satan with all his diabolical agents. I rejoice in praising Your name as I appreciate what AUTHORITY I have as a Son of God and not merely as a Child of God. I act in the power of Your name which is the AUTHORITY I possess to enforce Your will on Earth and bridge the gap between Heaven and Earth. Amen.
