There are some people who believe that numerology is a New Age science and therefore should be viewed with suspicion, even haunting concern. Seriously? In fact, and in fact, this is a totally unfounded mistaken belief in logic, reason, and fact. Honestly, numerology is as old as time itself, as old as creation itself, much older than man or any living being. When we take a simple, clear and unbiased look at the reality of numerology, its truth is beyond question.
Numerology is the science of numbers as they relate to life. Numbers are the most universal language of all. Numbers existed before man, before life. The numbers are simply energy labels. Frankly, they are one of the purest forms of communication that God uses to connect with man.
The first pure mathematician was Pythagoras, who lived approximately 500 years before Christ. He stated, Numbers rule the universe. Everything is arranged according to number and mathematical form. This remarkable mathematician was the first to notice the relationship between numbers and life. In fact, Pythagoras is considered the first numerologist. 2500 years ago is a long time. So how can numerology be a “New Age” invention?
The great scientist Sir Isaac Newton said: God created everything by number, weight and measure … It is the perfection of God’s works that they are all done with the greatest simplicity. He is the God of order and not of confusion. These esteemed scientists understood the reality of numbers as the cornerstone of the foundation of the universe. Therefore, numbers existed before man, before life.
Think of the periodic table of elements, each of which is associated with letters and numbers. For example, gold has a letter symbol “Au” and an atomic number of 79. Silver has a letter symbol of “Ag” and an atomic number of 74. The symbol for oxygen is “O” and its atomic number is 8. So it is with all the elements, each one is identified by letter and number.
Also, consider sound, light, and electricity. They can all be measured with numbers. In fact, what is there that cannot be reduced to numbers? When someone claims that numerology is “New Age”, it may be because the reality of numbers is new to them, but obviously numbers … and their relationship to life itself … are not new.
Christians and numerology
There is a belief among some Christians that numerology is demonic, and because it is “New Age” it should be avoided. How can this be? Despite the reality of science and numbers, Christians use the number 666 to define the “Mark of the Beast.” Defining a person by numbers while denouncing numerology is like worshiping the sun without just believing it doesn’t exist, but labeling it demonic.
In fact, all that Christians have to do to prove that numerology is a divine system of communication is nothing more than looking beyond the Bible itself, which is the richest numerological work on the planet. In truth, the first line of the first chapter of the Bible, Genesis, says: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” The number 1 in numerology is the cipher that represents new beginnings, new beginnings, creation … genesis. No wonder the first line of the first chapter of the Bible declares creation.
As one continues to read the Bible, the reality of the numbers is so evident that anyone, especially a Christian, cannot deny the reality of the numbers without denying the Christian faith and even the Bible itself. The numbers 3, 4, and 7 are so prevalent in the Bible that they cannot be overlooked, nor can the way they are used be overlooked. To deny numerology, much less deny, discredit or base it, is to deny the divinity of life itself, the Bible itself, and more specifically, to deny God himself.
The truth of numerology is that it is not “New Age” but “Old Age”, as old as creation itself. Numerology is the divine science of numbers and their relationship to life and destiny. It is not to be feared. It must be embraced. Through numerology, God gives us the ability and privilege to know our lives and destinies so that we are not ignorant, and by losing our ignorance we can make spiritual advances and advances towards our maximum freedom and liberation of the soul. Numerology is a great gift for humanity. There is no doubt about that. But if one wants to believe that numerology is “New Age” and that it should be avoided or discarded, then one will live the lives of those who once clung out of ignorance to the illusion that the world was really flat when, in fact, it had been. scientifically proven to be round by direct perception.
