Her mention of the number seven in her official announcement, which happened on 7/7/2014, got me thinking about the number 7 and it’s significance in the Bible. The number 7 in the Bible often denotes entirety or perfection. God created the earth in seven days. Seven churches were addressed in Revelation. The walls of Jericho came crashing down after they were marched around seven times. Mary Magdalene was possessed by seven demons…And there are many more references to the number seven in the Bible.

In other celebrity and seven news, Pastor Rudy Ramus of St. John’s United Methodist Church of Houston revealed that Beyonce’, a member of his church, donated $7 million to the church. Her sizable donation enabled 42 homeless men and women to have homes…See a video of Pastor Ramus speaking about her donation below.
So has the number 7 been significant in your life? Or do you not believe that numbers are significant?
