Wilson's Dictionary of Bible Types
(c) This number is used to represent GOD's complete provision both in CHRIST and in His dealings with men.
- the seven days make a perfect week.
- the seven colors make a perfect spectrum.
- the seven notes on the piano make a perfect scale.
- the seven articles of furniture in the tabernacle make a perfect picture of the Christian life.
- the seven "eyes" describe the perfect omniscience of the Holy Spirit ( Zechariah 3:9).
The number seven occurs very frequently throughout the book of Revelation, and in each case it indicates the perfect character of GOD, His perfect integrity, equity and justice in all His dealings with men.
