You know we’re in the year of 5779 on the Jewish calendar and in the year 2019 on the Roman calendar. Of course, we all use the Roman calendar here in America and in Western civilization but both of these years actually end with the number nine. It’s very interesting when you study Hebraic culture that they actually have a deep meaning whenever you look at specific numbers. And so whenever we look at the ending number of a year, I think it’s very interesting to understand exactly Hebraically how this number is approached in scripture.So the number nine has several different meanings that I want to kind of broaden and expand on in this short little time together. First of all, the number nine is the number of the Holy Spirit. I mean when you read the scripture you find that there’s nine gifts of the Holy Spirit, there’s nine fruit of the Holy Spirit, there’s nine Beatitudes, it’s really a place where you and Holy Spirit come into a place of intimacy and into a time of purpose.
