Seven in the Bible

It may surprise you to find out,
In the Bible, what sevenís about.
Complete and or perfect is what it means.
When creation came on the scene,
God rested on the seventh day.
We still count our weeks in this way.
Joshua marched around Jerico.
The seventh time the walls did go.
More than seven times to forgive,
Keep forgiving for Jesus to live.
Shadrack, Meshach, Abednego,
In Furnace seven times hotter did go.
God delivered them from all harm,
By the power of His mighty arm.
In Revelation sevens are thus:
Seven churches, seals, trumpets, plus
Seven figures, vials, dooms, new things.
A lot of food for thought it brings.
Do not forget the Shunammite
Whose son was her joy and delight.
When he died, in her great distress,
She begged Elisha to come and bless.
He came, prayed, and on the son laid.
Then the son seven sneezes made,
Achoo, achoo, achoo, achoo,
Achoo, Achoo, achoo, what did he do?
Opened his eyes and looked around.
The families happiness did abound.

I enjoyed this poem. Yes, seven is the number of completion and you have certainly completed this poem in a very interesting way. One is blessed to know the Bible in such a way to give a true and full account of the subject you have in mind. May God richly bless you for sharing your knowledge on this topic.

Thank you for emphasizing the number seven! I am just preparing for Sabbath, sundown tonight through sundown tomorrow. I feel this honors God, loving and worshiping Him for all He is, does and will do. Great job!
