Prophet Jonah disobeyed God and went into the belly of a fish. He couldn셳 eat anything therein for three days and then thoroughly repented so that he could be saved by God셲 grace.


4 is the number of the earth, which means 쁲uffering or trials.

We call 4 the number of the earth because the whole earth is usually expressed in the four directions: north, south, east, and west. Number 4 has the meaning of suffering or trials.

The Israelites were into slavery in Egypt for 400 years. After led out of Egypt by Moses, they stayed in the wilderness for 40 years. Shortly before His public ministry, Jesus fasted 40 days.


6is the number of cultivation and it means 쁯erfection in physical space.

John 2 tells us that Jesus was invited to the wedding at Cana and performed His first sign of turning water into wine. Before performing the sign Jesus made 6 stone jars filled with water to the brim. This represents 6,000 years of human cultivation.

God planned 6,000 years of human cultivation after Adam셲 sin. And God finished the work of His creation in 6 days for human cultivation.

In this physical world hexagon is considered the most stable and balanced in light of surface, volume, and height. It is because of the perfection in physical space. Honeycomb is made up of multiple hexagons interlocked. This honeycomb structure can create the lightest, strongest, and most stable structure with the minimum of materials. Therefore, it is applied in cutting-edge fields such as jets and satellites.


7 is the number of perfection and it means 쁟ompleteness or 쁯erfection.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and rested on the seventh day. God blessed and sanctified the seventh day after finishing all His work of creation.

The 쁓even Spirits of God in the Book of Revelation refers to the mind of God who examines in seven aspects. This means that God examines each one셲 heart accurately without any mistake.

Leviticus 4 tells us that when they give God sin offering they should sprinkle its blood seven times. It means to shake off sin completely.

General Naaman of Aram was healed of leprosy when he washed himself in the Jordan River seven times (2 Kings 5). Prophet Elijah received the answer of heavy rain on Mount Carmel after he prayed seven times (1 Kings 18).

When Jesus said, 쏧 do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. (Matthew 18:22), it means we should forgive others completely.


12 is the number of light and God is the Light.

Number 12 appears concerning God셲 important providence. 12 has a great spiritual significance. Jesus said, 쏛re there not twelve hours in the day? (John 11:9), and there is the brightest light at twelve (noon). 12 is the number of light and represents our Lord Jesus who is the true Light (John 1:9).

God셲 Elect Israel was formed through the twelve sons of Jacob and Jesus came to this earth in the flesh and was born in Israel. Also, He called and raised twelve disciples to entrust them with the mission of spreading the true Light Jesus Christ to the whole world.

The names of the twelve tribes of Israel are written on the twelve gates of the city of New Jerusalem and the names of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ on the twelve foundation stones of the city wall. On either side of the river of life is the tree of life which bears twelve kinds of fruit every month.


17is the number of action and it means 쁭umber of fruits.

17 spiritually means God Himself accomplishes His works in accordance with His will and providence. It appears in the recordings of Noah셲 flood.

The flood began on February 17 when Noah turned 600, and the water subsided on July 17, and Noah and his family stayed in the ark for 1 year and 17 days. This indicates that the Judgment of the Great Flood was in accordance with God셲 will and providence.

Joseph was sold into slavery to Egypt by his half-brothers at 17. From then on, God셲 providence for the nation of Israel began being accomplished through Joseph in earnest and he became prime minister of Egypt at 30.

17 is also the number of fruits borne through the fulfillment of God셲 plan. So it has the spiritual meaning of the fruits God will bear in His providence for the end time of the world.
