Quoting from Theomatics, 1st edition by Del Washburn, Page 235
Recently a correspondent asked me about the meaning of the number 777. We know that 666 is the number of the beast, and 888 is the number of Jesus, so what is 777. I recalled reading an answer to this question in Del Washburn's great book, Theomatics.
This extract comes in the midst of a chapter devoted to the meaning of 144, the number of the redeemed.
One of the most significant terms in relation to all of the redeemed is the word Church. . The Greek word for Church means "an assembly, or gathering of believers."
In going through the New Testament, we found very few features in reference to the Church that worked out to multiples of 144. This puzzled us at first, but then we discovered the reason why. Everything to do with the Church was structured on the number seven, which bespeaks perfection.
The real significance of this, however, was discovered in the book of Revelation. The entire message of the Apocalypse is structured around John writing to the seven Churches in Asia. The reason there were seven churches is that the Church has been made perfect through the blood of Christ.
Seven churches in Asia in Rev. 1:4 =777
The Church of God is also portrayed throughout scripture as the tabernacle, or building, of God. Here now are three features that tie together perfectly.
Church of God in 1 Tim. 3:15 =777 Tabernacle of God in Rev. 21:3 = 777 Building of God in 1 Cor. 3:9 =777
Probably the one verse in the Bible that best portrays the perfection of the Church is found in Ephesians 5:27. We have already seen how this passage was a multiple of 144. Let us now examine it again.
Church not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that it may be holy and unblemished = 7777
That is all Del had to say about 777 at that time. But I was extremely impressed, especially by the last feature he mentions.
My correspondent had asked me 4 questions about the number 777, as I was answering the 4th question, I felt the answer was inspired so I am sharing it with you here.
The Four Questions about the number 777:
a. What does it mean?
777 stands for the church in perfection.
b. How is it connected to biblical prophecy?
I take it to be a prophecy that the church will in fact come to perfection.
c. Is there any written documentation to what it means and if so where can I find it? the bible does not mention it anywhere that I can tell.
I refer you to Del Washburn's book. You can check on the World Wide Web at www.theomatics.com
d. Is there any documentation that this number will be assign to person to indicate or bare witness that biblical prophecy is going to come true.
No. This number is the number of the church in perfection. Therefore when the church does come to perfection that will be a sign that the rest of biblical prophecy is going to come true.
