When people think of God, they remember the holy trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.

The trine nature of God brings up the number 3, in both numerology and the Bible scriptures. Three is the symbol of government and creativity, too.

In the Bible, it is the symbol for the perfect marital love with the husband, wife, and their relationship with God in the center.

In other words, the three strand cord that can't be broken, the structure on which all things are built, and what you need when in preparation to create a living experience.

However, there are other numbers in the biblical scriptures that are used symbolically. As in numerology, life path numbers, and even astrology, studying the essence of these digits can help reveal truths about love and relationships; not just with God, but with other people.

Perhaps you're not sold that numbers mean anything at all. You might not think that numbers hold any significant value in your own life, either.

On the contrary, numbers have a strong source of energy surrounding them.

What does that mean, exactly and how to numbers related to the spirit of God?
