God, at the beginning of and throughout His Word, used numbers which are fraught with significance and meaning.

At the beginning of the Old Testament through Moses and at the beginning of the New Testament through John (John’s gospel should begin the N.T., not Matthew’s), God, via the use of numbers, set forth a septenary structure upon which His complete revelation to man rests.

Then, beyond this foundational structure seen beginning both Testaments,  God used numbers at times in order to provide information and instruction for His people.  And God used these numbers throughout His Word in a consistent manner, with different numbers carrying different meanings, in line with the context where they are found.

For example, “six” is man’s number, and “seven” is God’s number.  And, understanding the use of these two numbers in connection with the septenary structure of Scripture, the six days have to do with “Man’s 6,000-year Day,” and the seventh day has to do with “the Lord’s 1,000-year Day.”  Each has to do with a set, established time.

Then numbers are often used to denote completion or perfection.  For example, different numbers (3, 7, 10, 12, 40), or a combination of one or more of these numbers, are often used to denote some form of completion or perfection.

“Three” denotes Divine perfection, “Seven” denotes the completion of that which is in view, “ten” denotes numerical completion, and “twelve” denotes governmental perfection.

Or there could be a combination of one or more of these numbers, denoting completion, perfection.  Seven times ten is seventy;  and seven times seventy is four hundred ninety (ref. Chapter IV in this book).

Or, note the seven seals, seven trumpets, and seven vials in the Book of Revelation, denoting Divine perfection (three) in God’s complete judgment (seven) on the earth-dwellers, particularly upon Israel.

Or, note the 144,000 in Rev. 7, 14 (12x12x10x10x10). 

The preceding is simply one of the many different ways referred to in Heb. 1:1 that God, at the outset, structured His Word.  And material in this book is built around this feature of Biblical interpretation.
