NCCG and the Number 333
NCW 76, July-September 2002
Q. I also have had my attention drawn to the number of 333 many times. Years ago in a Baptist church, I heard a preacher talking about the number 666. He said the number 6 was the number of man. He said the number 3 was the number for God. He said the number 666 was the number of a man making himself out to be a god. I decided then the number 333 would have to represent God. Since that time my attention has been drawn to the number 333 many times. There was a time when for two nights in a role I was awakened up out of my sleep. When I looked at the clock it was 333 am. Many times I would notice license plates in front of me or numbers on trucks would be 333. Change from a cash register would be $3.33. The time on the clock at my office or in my car would be 3:33 p.m. I began seeing the number many places. I also noticed the number 333 is in many Christian ministries' phone numbers.
A. This is a phenomenon that many have written in to us about over the years and cannot be an accident. (See A Concealed Mystery: 333, Theomatics and Gematria). It's principal meaning is that of 'snow' (Hebrew Sheleg) which is a symbol used in scripture to denote purity (Is.1:18). We are in that end-time of which it is written:
"Behold, I send My messenger,
And he will prepare the way before Me.
And Yahweh, whom you seek,
Will suddenly come to His temple,
Even the Messenger of the covenant,
"But who can endure the day of His coming?
And who can stand when He appears?
For He is like a refiner's fire
And like launderer's soap.
He will sit as a refiner and a purifier of silver;
He will purify the sons of Levi,
And purge them as gold and silver,
That they may offer to Yahweh
An offering in righteousness."
(Mal 3:1-3, adapted NKJV).
The sons of Levi are, of course, the New Covenant Royal Priesthood, namely, all true Torah-obedient believers in the Lord Yah'shua (Jesus) (1 Pet.2:9-10), and the New Covenant temple is our physical bodies. To these souls the number 333 is being applied, often quite painfully, as the dross within us is burned out. With our minds and hearts thus purified, we are enabled to make righteous offerings of praise.
