There are some people who believe numerology is a New Age science and therefore should be viewed with suspicion, even disquieting concern. Really? Actually, and quite factually, this is an erroneous belief totally unfounded in logic, reason and fact. Quite truthfully, numerology is as old as time itself, as old as creation itself, far older than man or any living thing. When we take a simple, clear and unbiased look into 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. Numbers are simply labels for energy. They are, quite frankly, one of the purest forms of communication God uses to connect with man.
The first pure mathematician was Pythagoras who lived approximately 500 years BC. He stated, Numbers rule the universe. Everything is arranged according to number and mathematical shape. It was this remarkable mathematician who first noticed the relationship between numbers and life. In fact, Pythagoras is regarded as being the first numerologist. 2500 years ago is a long time. Therefore, 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 being 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 of “Au” and an atomic number of 79. Silver has a letter symbol of “Ag” and an atomic number of 74. Oxygen’s symbol is “O” and its atomic number is 8. So it is with all the elements, each is identified by letter and number.
Furthermore, consider sound, light, and electricity. They can all be measured using numbers. In fact, what is there that cannot be reduced to numbers? When someone makes a claim that numerology is “New Age,” perhaps it is 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” should be avoided. How can this be? Notwithstanding 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 while not only believing it does not exist but labeling it as demonic.
In fact, all Christians have to do to prove that numerology is a divine system of communication is look no further than the Bible itself, which is the richest numerological work on the planet. Verily, the very first line from the first chapter of the Bible, Genesis, states, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.” The number 1 in numerology is the cipher representing new beginnings, new starts, creation… genesis. It is no wonder the first line of the first chapter of the Bible declares creation.
As one continues to read the Bible, the reality of numbers is so glaringly obvious that any person, especially a Christian, cannot possibly deny the reality of numbers without denying the Christian faith and even the Bible itself. The numbers 3, 4, and 7 are so prevalent in the Bible they cannot be overlooked, nor can the way they are used be overlooked. To deny numerology, let alone disclaim, discredit or debase 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 is to be embraced. Through numerology, God gives us the ability and privilege to know our lives and destinies so that we will not be ignorant, and losing our ignorance we can make spiritual strides and gains toward our ultimate freedom and soul liberation. Numerology is a great gift for mankind. Of this there is no doubt. But if one wants to believe numerology is “New Age” and that it should be avoided or disclaimed, then one will live the life of those who once ignorantly clung to the illusion that the world was really flat when, in fact, it had been scientifically proven to be round by direct perception.
