Biblical Numerology: NUMBER SEVEN – Part 10

EPHESUS: THE FIRST CONDITION OF THE CHURCH

      To the angel of the church of Ephesus write:  ‘These things s says He who holds the seven stars in His right hand, who walks in the midst of the seven of the seven golden lamp stands (candlesticks, K.J.V).” Revelation 2: 1, N.K.J.V.

Since the distance between Earth and moon is roughly a quarter of a million miles, the distance from Earth to Alpha Centauri would be about 100 million times the distance from earth to the moon. See YahooAnswers.

Now most will agree that Heaven or Paradise , the home of God and the angels, most likely is at the center of the universe is infinitely farther “somewhere out there.” If so, pray tell, how does God the Father and Jesus, the ascended Savior who, since 31 C.E. has been interceding and pleading His blood as our merciful High Priest and Mediator in the heavenly courts above in His glorified human nature that the Twelve disciples and two angels witnessed and testified to (Acts 1: 1-15)–see, yea, dwell in us and abide in our hearts?  How will He “bring every” person’s “work into judgment with every secret thing, whether they be good or evil”? (Eccl. 12: 13, 14; Luke 8: 17)? Read more
