Biblical Numbers

Okay, so we understand that spiritual math is totally different from physical math. Although there are some times when they correlate.

The trinity: 1 x 1 x 1 <-- Multiplication

A Thousand years is as a day <-- Newton's time and space continuum and quantum physics about light and the eternal present.

I'm thinking about the effect of one.

In the Bible the works of one person has a lot of reverberation.

For instance, we're told, "One will put a thousand to flight. Two will put ten thousand to flight."
We're told that through one man's sin death entered the world causing all the world to die. Romans 5:12 (One man's sin, Paul tells us, didn't cause all the world to SIN because sin is not imputed where there is no law. Romans 5:13 And there was no law for many folks for quite a while. And even the folks who finally got the law didn't have the law all the time. So Death, not sin, ruled. Then the law came and brought sin in...which made folks not only dead to God but now unrighteous.)

Then Jesus came. One man. One man (Adam) caused all to die. One man (Jesus) caused all to be made alive. Just that. So all are not alive in some way. Romans 5:18-19 I'm not sure what the difference is between those who are alive and who don't know Christ AND those who are alive and are believers. But nevertheless, JEsus has brought life to the world. Behold all things are made new. By the work of one man.
