5) What’s Special About Number 10



Have you ever wondered how many things in this world God controls – e.g. the rise and fall of nations, languages, numbers, etc? Is it by accident “English” is now the most widely used language in the world? Is it just a coincidence the letter “i” is at the center of the words Luc-i-fer, pr-i-de, and s-i-n, when selfishness manifested by a love of money (dirt) is the root of ALL evil (10LC disobedience)? Seriously, how many things in this world does God control?

Did God purposely divide His Law of Love into TEN commands (and not some other number) for us to learn and know? Could He have even planned the written look of the very digits making up the number ten – a single straight line for a “1” & a circle for a “0”? Before you answer, ponder this … there are two main characteristics given in the Bible to describe God’s 10LC (also known as the “Word of God” for they are the only words God spoke AND wrote with His own mouth and finger): 1. They are like a sword (Ephesians 6:17) and 2. They are eternal (Matthew 24:35).

Now look at the “10” image above. Notice how a “1” is shaped like a sword and a “0” is a line without an end. Is this all just an accident? Look closely at the font and effects used in the 10LC logo’s number “10” above. They look sharp-edged like blades! Do you think that’s an accident?

“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12)



What was it that Stephen said before the council that “cut to the heart”? Was it not when he cried, “You have received the law, but not kept it!” What did Jesus confirm was the reason people hated him? Did he not say, “The world hates me BECAUSE I testify their works are evil (10LC disobedience)”? How often were the Pharisees offended with Jesus’ words? Why was this? Was it not because he continually accused them of sin (10LC disobedience)?

Why do many “ministers” today in churches shy away from speaking God’s Word?
