The number 17 -- resurrection, casting down, blood, flood, consecration...

Following is a list of recent Twitter Tweets I sent to help show the symbolism of the Bible's number 17. Some of the first Bible evidences for this DNA like numbering is found in the account of the flood. The rains of the great flood began on the 17th of the month representing both lifing up/saving of the faithful and the destruction of the wicked. The ark also rested on the 17th of the month reflecting the end of the earth cleansing event. Having this very clear example helps to understand other places in the Bible where number seventeen is found.

You will also find this number strongly related to both water and blood throughout the Bible. You can decide for yourself the best definition of #17 - I see it strongly related to things of being saved/lifted up or resurrection. Blood and water/floods relate to cleansing and saving as well. It is often found also relating to those who are going to be lifted up/cast down.

Don't assume my definition for #17 is accurate, but use this information to start forming your own opinion about the symbolism of #17. To understand this number better, watch verse seventeens as well as chapter seventeens in your study. Seventeen is one of the easiest numbers to observe the patterns between the Bible's numbers and text. Enjoy the journey of learning and let God draw you nearer to him as you discover the amazing nature of this number.
(pardon the cryptic nature of the tweets caused by trying to communicate a thought in 140 characters or less)
