NOAH AND THE ARK

 

                                           

NOAH AND THE ARK


Sometimes we become so familiar with the accounts recorded in the Bible that we often overlook some amazing truths. For example the account of Noah and the ark, when God destroyed all living flesh by a flood sparing only eight people.

The word “Noah” is found 51 times in the Bible. The name “Noah’s” occurs 2 times in the Bible making a total of 53 times. However, 4 of the uses of the name “Noah” refer to a different person. Therefore, we will only consider the total 49, which is 53 minus 4, the actual number of times the Noah of the flood occurs in the Bible. It has been found that numbers in the Bible are not without significance.

Other authors have written entire books on showing HOW each meaning became associated with a particular number. And for that reason, I see no need for me to repeat their work in this study. If you desire to read these books, I have listed the ones that I am aware of at the close of this study on Noah’s name. The number 51 bears the meaning of Divine revelation, so let’s see what the name Noah reveals to us.

The first time that Noah is found in the Bible is in Genesis 5:29 where we read these words.


Genesis 5:2.


“And he called his name Noah,(1st time that the name, Noah is found in the Bible) saying, This same shall COMFORT us…”


The name “Noah” means comfort. The number one represents God the Father. The number 1 also bears the meaning of unity, pure and single. There is only one God, the Father and creator of all things. We find this in 1 Corinthians 8:6.


Then in 2 Corinthians 1:3 we read,


“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all COMFORT.”


The only true and lasting comfort comes only from God the Father, the only true God.

The number 2 represent Jesus, the Son of God, and bears the meaning of union as well as division and witnessing. The second time the name “Noah” is found is in Genesis 5:30,31.


Genesis 5:30,31.


“And Lamech lived after he begat Noah (2nd time) five hundred ninety five (595) years, and begat sons and daughters: And all the days of Lamech were seven hundred seventy and seven (777) years: and he died.”


Notice that we are given two numbers in these verses, 595 and 777. Looking closer at these numbers we find that 595 can also be written as (5x119). The number 5 means grace and the number 119 refers to the resurrection day or the day of the Lord. Again 119 can be written as (7x17).

The number 7 means perfect or complete and the number 17 represent victory or security. It is only through Jesus, the Son of God, that we have been given grace (5) to obtain victory (17) over death to rise again (119) to become perfect and complete (7) in him before God the Father, the God of ALL COMFORT. Oh but wait, there is more. The number 777 is the numerical value of the word “cross”. Lamech, the son of Noah whose name means COMFORT died at 777 years of age and Jesus, the Son of the God of all COMFORT died on the cross (777) for our sins.

The number 3 represents the Holy Spirit and the meaning of the number 3 is associated with this number is the resurrection. Jesus was resurrected on the THIRD day. The third time the name “Noah” is found we find the following words.


Genesis 5:32.


“And Noah (3rd time) was five hundred (500) years old:”

The Holy Spirit was poured out on the day of Pentecost. The word Pentecost comes from the Greek word “pentekostos” meaning fifty. The word fifty comes from two words pente meaning five and konta meaning 10 times. Noah’s age of 500 can also be written as (10x50). And the number 50 is also associated with the Holy Spirit and can be written as (5x10). The number 5 is the number for grace. The Holy Spirit is called the Spirit of grace in Hebrews 10:29. Now let’s connect the number 3 which bears the meaning of resurrection with the Holy Spirit.


Look at Romans 8:11 which says,


“But if the Spirit of him (God the Father) that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies BY his Spirit that dwells in you.”



The Holy Spirit of God is the power, so to speak, behind the resurrection.

The number 4 is associated with the world, creation or the worldly nature of mankind. The fourth time the word “Noah” appears in the Bible is in Genesis 5:32-6:1-7. Here we find mankind multiplying on the face of the earth and the wicked or worldly nature of mankind becoming so great that it repented God that he ever created him. Then in Genesis 6:8 we read which is the FIFTH time we find the name, Noah.


Genesis 6:8.


“But Noah (5th time) found GRACE in the eyes of the Lord.”


Remember 5 is the number for grace and this is the 5TH time the name “Noah” is found. Amazing isn’t it!


The sixth, seventh, and eighth time the name Noah is found is in the next verse.


Genesis 6:9.


These are the generations of Noah: (6th time. And one of the meaning for the number 6 is mankind) Noah was a just man and PERFECT in his generations, (This is the 7th time that the name Noah is found and one of the meanings of the number 7 is PERFECT. And Noah was found PERFECT in his generations.) and Noah  (8th time) walked with God.”


The number 8 means new beginning or the new birth in our walk with God.

The ninth and tenth time the name Noah is found is in Genesis 6:10-13. And the context of these verses is about the works of deeds of mankind being FULL of wickedness. The number nine is associated with the Holy Spirit and judgment. One of the meanings of the number 9 is the FRUIT of the Spirit or the WORKS. And one of the meanings of the number 10 is completion or the end. The number ten is also associated with the LAW of God.


Genesis 6:10-13.


“And Noah begat three sons, Shem, Ham, and Japheth.  (9th time. And the context is speaking about the WORKS of mankind coming under the JUDGMENT of God)

11. The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

12. And God looked upon the earth, and, behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted his way upon the earth.

13. And God said unto Noah, (10th time) The END of all flesh is come before me; for the earth is filled with violence through them; and, behold, I will destroy them with the earth.”


The number 11 is associated with the JUDGMENT of God. And in Genesis 6:14-22 God gave Noah instructions on what to do in order to escape God’s JUDGMENT of the flood to destroy the wicked. And in verse 22, we see that Noah OBEYED all that God commanded him to do.


Genesis 6:22.


Thus did Noah; (11th time) according to all that God commanded him, so did he.”


The number twelve has several meanings. And one of those meanings is divine government or divine order. It is what God desires so that there will be ORDER. And the 12th time the name Noah is found we see that God found Noah to be RIGHTEOUS, which is the ORDER of God’s RULE.


Genesis 7:1


“And the LORD said unto Noah, (12th time) Come you and all your house into the ark; for you have I seen RIGHTEOUSNESS before me in this generation.”


The number 13 is associated with sin, rebellion, depravity, and destruction. But it also has connection with Jesus being our deliverer. And right before Noah is delivered from desctruction we read where God tells Noah that the wicked will be destroyed because of their corrupption, sin, and depravity.


Genesis 7:4,5.


“For yet seven days, and I will cause it to rain upon the earth forty days and forty nights; and every living substance that I have made will I DESTROY from off the face of the earth.

5. And Noah (This is the 13th time that the name Noah is found. And it is right after God tells Noah what to do and WHY Noah needs to obey him in order to be delivered from the destruction of the wicked. And Noah) did according unto all that the LORD commanded him.”


The number 14 mean forgiveness, deliverance, and salvation. And the 14th time that the name Noah is found we see Noah entering into the ark to be delivered from the flood. The number 600 is the number for WARFARE. And there is a warfare between righteousness and unrighteousness. The number 15 means REST, security and safety. And it is rest to know that you are SAFE from destruction. When we enter into faith in Jesus we enter into REST.


Genesis 7:6.7.


“And Noah (14th time) was six hundred (600) years old when the flood of waters was upon the earth.

7. And Noah (15th time) WENT IN, and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him, INTO the ARK (Of SAFETY and REST), because of the waters of the flood.”


It is also interesting to learn in Genesis 7:20 that the ARK was lifted up above the mountains of the earth FIFTEEN cubics by the flood waters. And In Acts 27:21 we learn that Paul’s ship RESTED SAFELY on the FOURTENTH day in FIFTEEN fathoms of water after THIRTEEN days of stormy seas in danger of the ship being destroyed.


The number 16 means LOVE. But it also has connection to REIGNING or ruling. The number 17 is associated with VICTORY and overcoming. The number 18 means DESTRUCTION, bongage, and binding. And the 16th, 17th, and 18th time the name Noah is found we see that the animals went into the ark TWO by TWO. In other words, the animals went into the ark as PAIRS or MATES, one male and one female of every kind of animal.


Genesis 7:8-12.


“Of clean beasts, and of beasts that are not clean, and of fowls, and of every thing that creepeth upon the earth,

9. There went in TWO and TWO unto Noah (16th time) into the ark, the male and the female, (Or as MATES in LOVE) as God had commanded Noah. (17th time. And again, because of Noah’s obedience to God the VICTORY over the flood waters is obtained for Noah, his famimily and the animals)

10. And it came to pass after seven days, that the waters of the flood  (Of DESTRUCTION) were upon the earth.

11. In the six hundredth (600th) year of Noah's life, (The 18th time which is the number for destruction. But Noah’s life was preserved in VICTORY over DEATH from the judgment of the flood or in the WARFARE against sin) in the second month, the SEVENTEENTH day of the month, the same day were all the fountains of the great deep broken up, and the windows of heaven were opened.

12. And the rain was upon the earth forty days and forty nights.”


The number 19 is the number for FAITH. The number 20 means REDEMPTION. The number 21 is associated with exceeding sinfulness of sin. And the number 22 means LIGHT and TESTIMONY. We are to MANIFEST the light. And in the context of where we find the 19-22 time that the name Noah is found we can see all four meanings.


Genesis 7:13-15.


“In the selfsame day (Or the seventeenth day) entered Noah (19th time. The FIRST time of doing anything requires FAITH)), and Shem, and Ham, and Japheth, the sons of Noah (20th time. Again, they are being REDEEMED from the destruction of the flood), and Noah's wife, (21st time. I find it interesting that the name Noah is in the PROSSESSIVE form in both times when the context speaks of destruction and sin. The wages of sin is eternal destruction. The 18th time that the name Noah is found in in Genesis 7:11 and it is also in the possessive form written as Noah’s life. And the 21st time it is written as Noah’s wife) and the three wives of his sons with them, into the ark;

14. They, and every beast after his kind, and all the cattle after their kind, and every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind, and every fowl after his kind, every bird of every sort.

15. And they went in unto Noah (22th time. A manifestation of the light or obeying God. It was God who led them) into the ark, two and two of all flesh, (And Jesus is the LIGHT of the world) wherein is the breath of life.”


The number 23 is the number for DEATH. But if you remember the number 3 is associated with the RESURRECTION and the number 20 means REDEMPTION. Twenty plus three equals twenty three. So the number 23 is also associated with the righteous being delivered by the resurrection or the passing OVER of death. In other words, the power of DEATH had no power over Noah, his family, and every LIVING thing IN the ARK of the PROTECTION of God.


Genesis 7:23.  


And every living substance was destroyed which was upon the face of the ground, both man, and cattle, and the creeping things, and the fowl of the heaven; and they were destroyed from the earth: and Noah (23rd time) only remained alive, and they that were with him in the ark.”



The number 24 is associated with the priesthood. And the priesthood is connected with making INTERCESSION.


Genesis 8:1.


And God REMEMBERED Noah, (This is the 24th time that the name Noah is found in the Bible.) and every LIVING thing, and all the cattle that was with him in the ark: and God made a wind to pass over the earth, and the waters asswaged;”


In other words, God INTERCEDED and ended the rain. God interceded and caused a wind to dry up the water of the flood.



The number 25 is connected to being forgiven. It is also associated with grace being multiplied. The number 40 is associated with tribulation, trial, testing, and judgment. And in the next passage of Scripture judgment of the flood ENDED showing God’s GRACE.


Genesis 8:6-10.


“And it came to pass at the END of forty (40) days, that Noah (25th time) opened the window of the ark which he had made:

7. And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro, until the waters were dried up from off the earth.

8. Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground;

9. But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and pulled her in unto him into the ark. (Another showing of GRACE)

10. And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark;”


The number 26 represents the GOSPEL. The word gospel means GOOD NEWS. And in the next verse the DOVE brings the GOODS NEWS to Noah that the waters of the flood have abated.


Genesis 8:11.  



“And the dove came in to him in the evening; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah (26th time) knew that the waters were abated from off the earth.”


The number 27 is connected with the PREACHING of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. And the heart of the gospel is the resurrection of Jesus. The COVERING of the tomb of Jesus was rolled away or REMOVED and the tomb was OPENED. And in the next verse we see that the COVERING of the ARK was removed.


Genesis 8:13.  


“And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters were dried up from off the earth: and Noah (27th time) REMOVERED the COVERING of the ark, and looked, and, behold, the face of the ground was dry. (Also, please notice in the next verse that it was the 27th day that the covering of the ark was removed)

14. And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth (27th) day of the month, was the earth dried.


Amazing! To me, this is no coincidence that all the meanings of the numbers in the Bible correspond to the number that the name Noah is found in the Bible.

The number 28 is connected with LIFE but more specifically it represents  ETERNAL LIFE. And in the 28th time we find the name Noah we see God calling out to Noah to GO FORTH from the ark. To me, this represent God resurrecting Jesus from the dead and Jesus GOING FORTH out of the tomb.



Genesis 8:15-17.


“And God spake unto Noah, (28th time) saying, GO FORTH of the ark, you, and your wife, and your sons, and your sons' wives with with.

17. Bring forth with you every living thing that is with with, of all flesh, both of fowl, and of cattle, and of every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.”


The number 29 means DEPARTURE. And the 29th time we find the name Noah we see that they all have DEPARTED the ARK.


Genesis 8:18,19.


“And Noah (29th time) WENT FORTH (Or Noah DEPARTED from the ark), and his sons, and his wife, and his sons' wives with him:

19Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, andwhatsoever creepeth upon the earth, after their kinds, went forth out of the ark.”


The number 30 represent the shep BLOOD of Jesus Christ. And without the shedding of BLOOD there is no remission of sins. So the number 30 is associsted with SACRIFICE to God. And in the 30th time that the name Noah is found in the Bible we find Noah bulding an ALTAR and offering a sacrifice to God. We also see that the CURSE of the ground was done away. And in the context going into the next chapter we learn that LIFE is in the BLOOD.


Genesis 8:20.


“And Noah (30th time which is right after Noah DEPARTED from the ark) built an ALTAR unto the LORD; and took of every clean beast, and of every clean fowl, and offered burnt offerings on the altar.

21. And the LORD smelled a sweet savour; and the LORD said in his heart, I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake; for the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I again smite any more every thing living, as I have done.”


Again, the number 30 is associated with the blood of Jesus Christ. It also means dedication. It is when Noah built and ALTAR to offer a sacrifice to God. And in the context of the 30th time we find the name Noah we are told the LIFE is in the BLOOD. And we also learn that if the LIFE of a MAN is taken then God will require the LIFE of the one who took that man’s LIFE. So you can see how God is laying the groundwork for the New Covenant and the HOPE of SALVATION through the shed BLOOD of Jesus Christ. The number 31 is connected to OFFSPRING.


Genesis 9:1-7.


“And God blessed Noah (31st time) and his sons, and said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth.

2. And the fear of you and the dread of you shall be upon every beast of the earth, and upon every fowl of the air, upon all that moveth upon the earth, and upon all the fishes of the sea; into your hand are they delivered.

3. Every moving thing that lives shall be meat for you; even as the green herb have I given you all things. (Again, this is in the context of the 30th and the 31st time that the name Noah is found in the Bible. And remember that the number 30 is associated with the BLOOD or Jesus Christ and sacrifice and dedication to God)

4. But flesh WITH the LIFE thereof, which is the BLOOD thereof, shall you not eat.

5. And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man's brother will I require the life of man.

6. Whoso sheds man's blood, by man shall his blood be shed: for in the image of God made he man.

7. And you, be you fruitful, and multiply; bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply therein.”


Again, the number 31 is associated with OFFSPRING. So I should have done number 30, and 31 together because of the context.

The number 32 means COVENANT. The number 33 is connected with the PROMISES of God. Number 34 means the NAMING of sons. And number 35 is associated with having HOPE. And all these meanings are found in the next four times that the name Noah is found.



Genesis 9:8-19.


“And God spake unto Noah, (32nd time) and to his SONS with him, saying,

9. And I, behold, I establish my COVENANT with you, and with your seed after you;

10. And with every living creature that is with you, of the fowl, of the cattle, and of every beast of the earth with you; from all that go out of the ark, to every beast of the earth.

11. And I will establish my COVENANT with you; (And again, the meaning of the number 32 is COVENANT) neither shall all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of a flood; neither shall there any more be a flood to destroy the earth.

12. And God said, This is the TOKEN (Or the PROMISE) of the COVENANT which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:

13. I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a TOKEN (Or the PROMISE. And the meaning of number 33 is PROMISE) of a COVENANT between me and the earth.

14. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud:

15. And I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh; and the waters shall no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. (And again, the meaning of number 32 is COVENANT and the meaning of the number 33 is PROMISE)

16. And the bow shall be in the cloud; and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting COVENANT  (Which again is the meaning of number 32) between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth.

17. And God said unto Noah, (32nd time) This is the TOKEN  (Or the PROMISE) of the COVENANT, which I have established between me and all flesh that is upon the earth.

18. And the sons of Noah (This is the 34th time that the name Noah is found in the Bible. And again the number 34 is connected to the NAMING of SONS. And it also mean endurance), that went forth of the ark, (In other words, they ENDURED being closed up in to ark) were Shem, and Ham, and Japheth: (The NAMES of the three SONS of Noah) and Ham is the father of Canaan. (The meaning of the number 34 is the NAMING of the SONS which is right before the 34th time the name of Noah is found in the Bible)

19. These are the three SONS of Noah: (35th time) and OF THEM was the whole earth overspread.


In other words, the HOPE of the whole earth would come through the sons of Noah. And the meaning of the number 35 is HOPE.

The number 36 means enemy. And guess what happens next in the Biblical account of Noah? The ENEMY of God shows up. That is right. SIN comes knocking at the door of Noah and he drinks the wine of his vinyard in excess and gets drunk. And while Noah is sleeping in his drunken state his son Ham committed the sin of sodomy with his father.


Genesis 9:20.


And Noah (36th time) began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard:

21. And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent.

22. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

23. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid itupon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.”


The number 37 represent the word of God or the word of TRUTH. The number 37 is associated with the word of God that brings LIFE. And the word of truth opens our eyes or WAKES us up to sin. It also means exaltation or to exalt or bless. And in the context of the 37th time that the name Noah is found he speaks the blessing and the cursing of God’s word.


Genesis 9:24.


“And Noah (37th time) AWOKE from his wine, and KNEW what his younger son had done unto him.”


The number 38 means SLAVERY. And another writer says the the number 38 means righteousness. And in the context of the 37th and the 38th time the name Noah is found we also see all of these meanings.


Genesis 9:25-28.


“And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

26. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

27. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his SERVANT (Or his SLAVE).

28. And Noah (38th time) LIVED after the flood three hundred and fifty (350 or 35x10) years.”


The number 39 means different things depending on whose book you are reading. One meaning of the number 39 is sickness and disease. Some associate the number 39 with the stripes of Jesus being the healing of the 39 known diseases. Others say that the number 39 is associated with TRUTH. So I do not see any connection with the meanings of the number 39 with the 39th time that the name Noah is found other than the truth is that we all will die and some deseases cause death. Noah lived to be 950 years old and died.


Genesis 9:29.


“And all the days of Noah were nine hundred and fifty (950) years: and he died.”


The number 40 is connected with TRIALS, tribulation, suffering temptation and testing. And the number 41 is associated with DECEPTION. And in the context of Genesis 10:1-23 we see that the earth was DIVIDED in the days of Peleg. Also, AFTER the floor the deception of Satan TEMPTING mankind to sin continued.



Genesis 10:1.  


“Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, (40th time) Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born AFTER the flood.”


Genesis 10:25.


And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth DIVIDED; and his brother's name was Joktan.


Genesis 10:32.  


“These are the families of the sons of Noah, (41st time) after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations DIVIDED in the earth AFTER the flood.”


The number 42 is connected with the SECOND COMING of Jesus. And right before the coming of Jesus will be a great DECEPTION.






Please read Genesis 10:1.


“Now these are the generations of the sons of Noah, (39th time) Shem, Ham, and Japheth: and unto them were sons born after the flood.”


The 41st time that the name Noah is found is the last time that it is found in the book of Genesis. And since the Bible is not written in a chronological order it is hard to say which is the 32nd time that the name Noah is found in the Bible. Now to me, since the writers of 1st and 2nd Chronicles were looking for the Messiah who is prophesied to come in the book of Isaiah then I would say that the prophet Isaiah came before the book of Chronicles.

Again, the number 42 is associated with the SECOND COMING of Jesus. And when Jesus returns he will execute the WRATH of Almighty God.




Isaiah 54:8-10.


“For a small moment have I forsaken you; but with great mercies will I gather you.

8. In a little WRATH I hid my face from you for a moment; but with everlasting kindness will I have mercy on you, says the LORD your Redeemer.

9. For this is as the waters of Noah unto me:  (42nd time that the name Noah is found in the Bible when referring to Noah of the flood) for as I have sworn that the waters of Noah (43rd time) should no more go over the earth; so have I sworn that I would not be wroth with you, nor rebuke you.

10. For the mountains shall depart, and the hills be removed; but my kindness shall not depart from you, neither shall the covenant of my peace be removed, says the LORD that has mercy on you.”


I did not find any meaning for the number 43. The number 44 means perdition. The number 45 means presevation or deliverance. The number 46 means second death or judgment. No meaning for the number 47 that I coud find. The number 48 means tabernacle or dwelling place. And the number 49 means wrath of God.

I believe that 1 Chronicles was written before Ezekiel so the 44th time the name Noah is found is in 1 Chronicals 1:4, which is recording geneology. So I do not find any connection with the meaning of perdition.


1 Chronicles 1:4  Noah, (44th time) Shem, Ham, and Japheth.


And the 45th and 46th  time that the name Noah is found is in Ezekiel 14:14-20. And we do find the meanings of the numbers 45 and 45 in the context.


Ezekiel 14:12-23.  


“The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,

13. Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:

14.Though these three men, Noah, (45th time. And the meaning of number 45 is presevation or DELIVERANCE) Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should DELIVER but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD. (And the meaning of the number 46 is second death or judgment)

15. If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts:

16. Though these three men were in it, as I live, says the Lord GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be DELIVERED, but the land shall be desolate.

17. Or if I bring a sword (Of judgment) upon that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it:

18. Though these three men were in it, as I live, says the Lord GOD, they shall DELIVER neither sons nor daughters, but they only shall be DELIVERED themselves.

19. Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my fury (Of judgment) upon it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast:

20. Though Noah,(46th time. And again, the meaning of the number 46 is the second death of the Day of JUDGMENT) Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live, says the Lord GOD, they shall DELIVER neither son nor daughter; they shall but DELIVER their own souls by their righteousness.

21. For thus says the Lord GOD; How much more when I send my four sore JUDGMENTS upon Jerusalem, the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast, and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?

22. Yet, behold, therein shall be left a remnant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters: behold, they shall come forth unto you, and you shall see their way and their doings: and you shall be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought upon Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought upon it.

23. And they shall comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings: and you shall know that I have not done without cause all that I have done in it, says the Lord GOD.”



Again, I could not find a meaning for the nimber 47, but  from observing how the meaning are GROUPED together having a connection we can assume that the number 47 has a connectin with the second coming of Jesus, the wrath of God, deliverance and judgment. Here is the 47th time that the name Noah is found in the Bible.


Hebrews 11:7.  


“By faith Noah, (47th time) being warned of God of things not seen as yet, moved with fear, prepared an ark to the saving of his house; by the which he condemned the world, and became heir of the righteousness which is by faith.”


The number 48 means tabernacle or dwelling place.


1 Peter 3:20.


“Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, (48th time) while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.


God is not willing that any man should perish. God’s will is that all men should be saved. And when a person is saved the Holy Spirit comes and DWELLS in the saved person who is abiding or dwelling in Jesus. The ark represents Jesus as our dwelling place of safety.

The number 49 means the wrath of God. And the context of the 49th time that the name Noah is found speaks of the second coming of Jesus and the WRATH of Almighty God.


2 Peter 2:5.  


“And spared not the old world, but saved Noah (49th time) the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;”


The number 49 is 7x7 and the number 7 means complete and perfect. The number EIGHT respesent the new birth in Jesus Christ. And when we are born-again we become the RIGHTEOUSNESS or God and we are perfect in the eyes of God. The number 49 is also associated with the end of this present world or the COMPLETION of this present world. Now let us read the context to see how the 49th time the name Noah is found is connected with te wrath and judgment of God.


2 Peter 3:3-12.


“Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

4. And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5. For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:

6. Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7. But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men. (Speaking of the WRATH of God)

8. But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. (Meaning that the first half of God’s WRATH will be executed by Jesus before the 1000 years and the last or final half of God’s WRATH will be poured out by God himself after the 1000 years has ended)

9. The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

10. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

12. Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?”


Thanks for reading. This study in God's word is NOT meant to be taken as a doctrine. Rather, this study is to spark the interest in others to study the amazing hidden truths in God's word, such as, the meanings of the numbers in the Bible. Here are the names of four books that I have read on this subject.


#1. The Arithmetic of God!!! by Don Kistler.

#2. Biblical Mathematics Key to Scripture Numbers by Evangelist Ed F, Vallowe.

#3. Numbers is Scripture. Its Supernatural Design and Spiritual Significance by E. W, Bullinger.

#4. The Pattern & The Prophecy. God's Great Code. by James Harrison.


And below is a list of all the verses with the name Noah is those verses. Again, the four verses in Numbers and in Joshua are not the same Noah as the Noah of the flood.

Thanks again for reading and may God bless you richly as you continue to stuy his word.

Your brother in our Lord Jesus Christ,

Brother Mark.
