There were eight miracles of Elijah as told in the bible. And God made eight
covenants with Abraham. According to the Bible, Eight has a special meaning for
God, as He chose the eighth day to mark the beginning of the new week.
Everything that has a new beginning in the Bible has the number eight associated
with it. Eight is the personal number of Jesus. When we add together the letter
values of the name Jesus in the Greek we get 888. Jesus was called The Christ, the
numeric value of this title is 1480 (185 x 8). He was Savior which has the value
1408 (2 x 8 x 88). Jesus is also Lord which again, is a multiple of eight being 800
(100 x 8). Messiah has the numeric value 656 (82 x8). Jesus also called himself the
Son of man. The term occurs 88 times and is valued at 2960 (370 x 8). Jesus said "I
am the truth": the numeric value of "the truth" is 64 (8 x 8). The last book in the
Bible is the Revelation of Jesus Christ which has exactly 888 Greek words. All the
Dominical names of Jesus Christ are marked by eight as a multiple if the laws of
Gem atria are applied to them. It can be seen as follows: Christ, 1480 (8x185),
Lord, 800 (8x100), Our Lord, 1768 (8x221), Savior, 1408 (82x 32), Emmanuel,
25600, (83x50), Messiah, 656 (8x82), Son, 880 (8x110).
The number 8 has been traditionally been associated with the entrance into the
Covenant of God by the historic Christian Church, which has followed the bible
blindly. This kind of understanding can come from God Himself who had
commanded Circumcision - the Sign of the Covenant - to be performed on the
Eighth Day. Thus once again, the number eight has exemplified the beginning of a
new era in the bible. Following are the Lord’s covenants with Abraham: (were
eight in number; seven before Isaac was offered up, and the eighth when he had
been received "in a figure" from the dead).
