|[GR] > The Number 151 - The People of God|
And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat
harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year’s end
And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas:
and God saw that it was good.
The prime Number 151 relates to the People of God who are gathered together by the Holy Spirit. This pattern first
emerges from the Days of Creation where God gathers the Waters on the Third Day. The Waters represent
"peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues" (cf. Rev. 17.15). They were divided on the Second Day and
gathered on the Third. This reveals the character of Christ who "came with a sword (image of division, cf. Matt.
10.34) and whose name divides all the peoples of the world, and the character of the Holy Spirit who gathers
the people of God. The Number 3 - the fundamental Number of God's Spirit - is used of God to refer to the
People of God gathered by His Spirit. Thus the first reference to the People of God in the Psalms is found in
Psalm 3, and in Zechariah, God divides all the world into two thirds who perish and one third who will go through
the fire and be tried and become His People.
The Gathering of Water spoken of on the Third Day is the Miqvah - which is also the Jewish word for Baptism. Thus
we have an extremely deep integration of the symbols of Water as Spirit/People of God and Gathering/Baptism which
then ultimately unites into the image of the People of God gathered and baptized by the Holy Spirit.
This number also manifests in the nominitive phrase "The Body of Jesus" =
2869 = 19 (Physical Manifestion) x 151
(The People of God).
