9,000th & 10,000th Bible verses point to two major events in Israel's history

In the 9000th Bible verse we see the event of Solomon's Temple being complete and the Spirit of God enters in a cloud -- In 1Kings chapter 8, the 299th chapter of the Bible, we find the 9000th Bible verse. The nine theme in these numbers is strongly found in the text helping us to better interpret the messages the chapter contains. There's two transitions of history found in this chapter and as I've written about in other places, the numbers 9, 99 and 999 are all transition numbers. Transition numbers mark the ending of one series of events, history or ends of things and precedes the beginnings of new ones.

In the 299th chapter of 1Kings 8 we find events consistent with the theme of chapter eight which are about the Godly, New Beginnings and the Indwelling of the Holy Spirit. This chapter tells us the Temple of God is now complete and the holy things including the Ark of the Covenant are being moved into it in front of a great assembly of people who were called to celebrate and witness this Holiest of events. Once the holy things are moved in and all is ready, verse 10 (a number of completeness) tells us 1Kin 8:10 "It happened that when the priests came from the holy place, the cloud filled the house of the LORD,". In this culminating event, and after generations of waiting for this moment, the temple is built and God's spirit has entered. Take special note that in this 8th chapter the spirit of the Lord enters the temple in the cloud just like the number eight is symbolic of God's Holy Spirit being sent to dwell in the those saved.

In the 9000th transitional verse we read 1Kings 8:14 "Then the king faced about and blessed all the assembly of Israel, while all the assembly of Israel was standing". We conclude this is a reference to Solomon who turns to the people to bless them, but the numbers of the Numeric Map suggest there is more to this story. This 9000th verse is also the 282nd verse of 1Kings and 28/82 are numbers related to the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ. The 299th chapter suggests a relationship to the number 29 (99) related to the return of the Lord. Fourteen is a number for Jesus the King (Passover) and in this 14th verse we find "The King" turning to bless the people. The message seems strong that this is a foretelling of when one day Jesus will again enter the temple to dwell and rule from the Holy of Holies.

This being the 9000th verse ends the part of history leading up to the building of the temple and begins a new section of scripture from 9001 to the 10,000th verse. You should find it interesting that in this 10,000th verse at 2Kin 17:16 we learn God has lost his patience with Israel and has decided to send them into exile. It says "They forsook all the commandments of the LORD their God and made for themselves molten images, {even} two calves, and made an Asherah and worshiped all the host of heaven and served Baal". The number nine has a theme of the Godly serving and persevering until the Lord returns and this is the theme for the 9000 series of verses. During this time God's Holy Spirit is dwelling with/in his people. The number 10 speaks of the completion of things where the righteous will be saved and those that have turned from God destroyed. In both the 9,000th and 10,000th Bible verses the Numeric Map clearly points out to us two major events and turning points in Israel's history.

  2. I had an unction to look up the meaning and signifigance of the number 9000 this evening because I have beome aware that at the times and events when I have been suffering persecutions for my faith in Jesus I have noticed tbat the number 300 was the amount of monry that was connected with and to mine betrayers. I think this is an amazing revelation about the number 9000. Thank you for sharing and God bless you!

  3. I had a dream where I saw a music minister give me 9000 of some currency... I don't know. As I checked this up, I found this article. Really encouraged, as this correlates with God blessing the children of Israel. The transition phase resonates so much with me as I've been seeking and waiting on God to clarify and straighten the path in my family. Just this week a friend called me to say God was going to bless me. I am so excited and waiting in expectation for what God has for me. Thank you so much for studies like this. I don't know how people would be this diligent to study numbers.
