“The Sovereignty of God: From Wordly Hope to Confident Expectation”

 

 

Eight and the Book of Ruth

 

Most are aware of the notion that the number 7 speaks of completeness in the Scriptures, Many us are aware that 3 speaks of perfect unity. Some are aware that 5 speaks of grace, 12 of government, 40 of judgment. There are many more striking examples of God’s perfect order. Few are aware that the number 8 is God’s number of new beginnings. Apprehend that we speak not of some esoteric biblical/numerical code deal.
